Wisconsin Paper, and Local Radio Do Major Trump Takedown

Looks like the “Steely Knives” are out in Wisconsin to kill the Trump campaign.First, the conservative talking heads in the state eviscerated him in interviews on talk radio…

And now the major Newspaper in the state has published a blistering condemnation.

Trump Pinata’s now popular in not only Mexico…But North of the Border

By any measure, Donald Trump is unfit to be president

No to Donald Trump.

No to his bigotry.

No to his contempt for women and minorities. No to his vague, clueless bluster about the problems facing the nation.

No to Trumpism, which runs counter to the ideals of this nation of immigrants, to the notion that by working together under the rule of law, we can protect freedom and promote inclusion and fair play.

Wisconsin Republicans: Reject this un-American candidate on April 5.

And consider these facts:

■Trump has stoked the smoldering fears of immigrants long latent in American political culture. He calls for walling out immigrants and deporting 11 million people. It is an impossible and disruptive policy that would divide families, require enormous law enforcement resources and drive the undocumented deeper into the shadows. Worse, it wouldn’t address the problem of supply and demand for labor. It likely would harm entire industries — including Wisconsin dairy operations — and encourage public corruption such as we haven’t seen since Prohibition.

■Trump’s blustering anti-Muslim rhetoric is helping to recruit new terrorists. He promises to “bomb the sh– out of ISIS” and demands that all Muslims be banned from entering the country. He singles out an entire religion, against the First Amendment promise that we can worship as we choose, instead of focusing on the terrorists who have brought shame to their faith. He refuses to rule out the use of tactical nuclear weapons. He says “torture works,” and despite never having fought for his country, he ridicules Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who suffered years of torture in a North Vietnamese prisoner of war camp. Trump advocates killing the civilian families of terrorists and violating international law, promising the military will follow his orders over their constitutional and moral duties. The Islamic State thinks so much of Trump’s sound bites that it has used them in recruitment videos.

■Trump has belittled women for decades. His coarse comments about his opponent in the early primaries, Carly Fiorina, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and Heidi Cruz, the wife of his closest opponent for the Republican nomination, were just the latest in a long line of outrageous sexist statements. He has called womenfat pigs, slobs and dogs. He has made rude sexual comments on talk radio shows. In the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, he had an astounding 70% unfavorable rating among women overall, which makes him unelectable in a general election.

■Trump has incited violence at his rallies with heated rhetoric aimed at firing up supporters while portraying himself as a tough guy. From behind a wall of Secret Service protection, Trump has said that in the past protesters “would be carried out on a stretcher” or that he would like to punch them “in the face.” After a white North Carolina man sucker-punched an African-American protester who was being led away, Trump offered to pay the assailant’s legal fees. In Chicago, after protesters infiltrated a Trump rally, the candidate called off the event and fist fights broke out. At a rally in Iowa, he “joked” that he could shoot someone “in the middle of Fifth Avenue” and not lose a single vote….Read The Rest Here

Oh, Baby!

Seems a little old lady holding a glass to the adjoining wall with her neighbor’s bedroom, while leaving Faux News on got a little over excited…

Elderly Wisconsin woman calls cops to report she heard neighbors chanting ‘ISIS is good, ISIS is great’ during sex

An elderly Wisconsin woman called police Sunday night after she claimed her neighbors were expressing their support for terrorists during an intimate moment.

The 82-year-old woman, whose name was not released, told officers she heard her neighbors chanting, “ISIS is good, ISIS is great,” while having sex, reported WDJT-TV.

The claims apparently turned out to be unfounded and no arrests were made in the case, but police told the woman to call back if she heard the chanting again.

The TV station reached out to Brown Deer’s police chief for additional details, and he replied with a wisecrack.

Was it as good for you as it was for me Isis?

Black Basketball Players Expelled From School for Making 3 Point Sign

This one is so ridiculous, it just makes you mad…

Hand signals are used in basketball frequently to signal the next offensive play, or defense. That is done because in an enclosed stadium simply shouting won’t be heard by the other players over the noise of the crowd. Hand signs are also used by players as signs of success at a particular move or goal (to the crowd), or taunting another player.

High School Suspends Black Basketball Players, Claiming Gang-Related Hand Signs

A Wisconsin school district is standing by its decision to suspend two black basketball players because the signals they were making with their hands looked gang-related, saying that proper procedure was followed, the Raw Story reports.

 It all started at the beginning of the month when a local newspaper, the Sheboygan Falls News, ran what was supposed to be an upbeat story about three brothers, Jordan, Jamal and Juwaun Jackson, who moved to the district and now play basketball with Sheboygan Falls High School. As is normal, the paper did a mini photo-shoot for the article, and ultimately the decision was made to publish a “goofy” picture of the boys fooling around in their team’s uniform, making gestures with their hands.

However, things didn’t end up well for the boys. The high school suspended two of the brothers because parents who saw the story in the sports section of the paper thought the boys were making gang signs. The police department was even called in to investigate at the school’s request, the Raw Story notes.

“I did it like every other kid does it when they make a three [pointer],” Jordan Jackson explainedto TMJ News. “When you make a three, everyone does this sign. You’ve probably seen LeBron James or someone do it. I did the three in the picture, and my little brother pointed at the camera.

“I had no idea, they told us it meant blood,” he said referring to infamous Bloods gang.

Jean Born, the district superintendent, is sticking firm to the decision, saying that the school followed the athletic code. Police Chief Steve Riffel claimed that he was “able to confirm that the sign was indeed a gang sign,” even though he admitted the boys weren’t a threat.

The Sheboygan Falls News is siding with the boys on this issue, shocked at the mess the article has caused, expressing their disappointment in the school.

“The sign made by Jordan Jackson (on the far left side of the photo) is also commonly used by NBA players, such as James Harden, Lebron James and Brandon Jennings, after making a three-point shot,” the paper’s editor, Jeff Pederson, wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday. “The good intentions surrounding a positive article about high school student-athletes adjusting to a new school and contributing to an SFHS sports program has somehow taken an ugly turn.

“We are disappointed and saddened by the negative reaction and subsequent outcome, which has resulted in two high school basketball players being forced to miss a game against the team’s biggest rival,” he added. “In my 20 years in mainly small-town newspaper journalism, I have fielded plenty of complaints from readers. However, I have never seen anything published in a paper I have been a part of escalate to this very unfortunate and negative magnitude.”

The ACLU of Wisconsin has also stepped up in the boys’ defense, saying that they will be investigating the case themselves.

“It appears as if the Sheboygan Falls school district and police department are unprepared to respond to the increasing diversity in the schools in an appropriate and educationally sound manner,” ACLU Executive Director Chris Ahmuty said, according to the Raw Story. “The ACLU will be seeking information from the schools in order to assess their compliance with pupil non-discrimination rules. The ACLU asks the district to immediately make the brothers eligible to play in tomorrow’s game.”

Now, I don’t know where they recruited this particular group of school administrative morons from but obviously they have never attended a Wisconsin-Michigan Game…

Wisconsin Badger Frank Kaminsky makes a “gang sign” after making a 3 pointer. Michigan’s Nick Stauskas with “3 points in your eyes” 

Or a pro game.

Lebron James gives the three point signal

Another Black Teen Murdered

In this one a 75 Year old white man shoots an unarmed teen doing house chores bringing in the empty garbage cans.

Two differences between this and the Trayvon, this one had a video recording of it by the murderer’s “security camera” so it was hard to cover up…

And it wasn’t in a Stand Your Ground Get Away With Murder of Black Kids State.

John Henry Spooner Shooting VIDEO: Evidence Shows Darius Simmons Killed

John Henry Spooner has been found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide in the fatal shooting of Darius Simmons.

ORIGINAL STORY — A video entered as evidence in the murder trial of John Henry Spooner on Tuesday appears to show the 76-year-old shooting his 13-year-old neighbor Darius Simmons dead.

Buckdance!

For readers not familiar with the terminology – a buckdance in black American vernacular  is a dance done by slaves for money or the approval of their white masters. The African American variation of which derived from the West Indies. The term has since been absorbed into the lexicon to mean a style of dancing, wherein a male dances by himself to show his skills. Clogging, a style of dance which derived from dance styles in Scotland and Ireland, which is performed to Bluegrass or Country style music has a variant where a man dances alone, typically using a sheet of plywood as a soundboard for his steps. It is an art style, and to be well done requires considerable skill.

Buckdancing in this post is the African American version – which is a racial pejorative synonymous with Uncle Tom.

Our first buckdancer up for our entertainment is Herman (“Where the white wimmin at”) Cain –

Obviously Herman is buckdancing for white conservative ears, as he now has a new Radio show taking over for Neal Boortz. The fact that Herman is a sick, women molesting trick, who cheated on his wife for 20 years or more isn’t a problem for evangelical white conservatives ready to forgive his sins as long as he continues to put a black face on their racism.

Our second buckdancer is Al Sharpton – making excuses for the Democrat Party’s failure in the recent recall election in Wisconsin –

Buck up Al – The Republicans didn’t win by cheating – they won by the Democrats failure to invest money in the election, AND, most importantly, their failure to make the case that Walker should be removed for unpopular politics – well short of any proven (to this point) criminal malfeasance. The donors apparently figured this out early – as did the DNC – and were noticeably absent in pouring money to counter the Republicans 7-1 spending advantage in the state.

This was not the stolen Florida Presidential Election of 2000 – they beat the Dems by 5 points – not 5 votes. Dems lost…Period. Guess what Al, black folks are so thin on the ground in Wisconsin, if you got 100% turnout… They (Walker) still won.

You can blame Citizen’s United – you can blame the Koch brothers…

But what they did was legal.

As to Walker – with his former top adviser turning State’s evidence – he will be indicted in the John Doe fiasco in the next 30 days and out of office by the Presidential elections. So the Dems win anyway. Its the good citizens of the state who lost.

First Wisconsin Recall Petition Reaches Milestone

In what should be a national landslide by 2011 – the effort to recall Tea Bagged Republican legislators bent on destroying American freedoms is now solidly underway – with the first recall petition in Wisconsin reaching the minimum number of signatures to force a recall election in less than 30 days…

First Wis. Recall Petition Will Be Filed Today

The first recall petition will be filed today against a Wisconsin Senate Republican who joined the rigged vote to take away public employees freedom to bargain. Organizers say volunteers have gathered more than the 15,588 signatures needed to trigger a recall election of Sen. Dan Kapanke, who represents the La Crosse area. Recall supporters say they plan to take the petitions to Madison after a rally today at La Crosse City Hall.

This is the first  of 19 active recall efforts registered between Feb. 24 and March 2 against 16 senators. The filing comes just before the halfway point in the 60-day window the recall committee has to gather signatures in the district.

The state Democratic Party provided infrastructure support but “not a single paid canvasser was needed to trigger the recall versus Dan Kapanke,” said party spokesman Graeme Zielinski, who credited volunteers for collecting more than 20,000 signatures in less than 30 days.

“It took on a life of its own,” said Pat Scheller, who filed the original paperwork to launch the recall effort. Scheller is  a banker and is not a member of any party.

The state Government Accountability Board could order an election on the sixth Tuesday after determining the petition is in order. If there is more than one challenger, that election would be a primary followed by a general election four weeks later.

Bet they can’t wait until January when the citizens of Wisconsin get to fire Governor Scott Walker.

Virginia…Where are you?

Judge Block Wisconsin Union Busting Law

Hopefully the beginning of ruling the Law unconstitutional.

Judge blocks Wisconsin law curbing labor rights

A Wisconsin judge issued an order Friday temporarily blocking implementation of a law that would severely restrict collective bargaining rights for most public employees in the state.

Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi issued a restraining order that stops publication of the law signed last week by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Governor Walker (R). Halting that procedural step has the effect of blocking the law, which would go into effect once it is formally published.

The judge’s order came after Dane County’s Democratic District Attorney Ismael Ozanne filed suit alleging that a joint committee of the legislature violated the state’s open meeting law when it abruptly called a session to facilitate the law’s passage last week.

The judge’s ruling does not speak to the legal merits of the law but says that the lawsuit over the session has to be completed before the law is allowed to move forward.

Phil Neuenfeldt, president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO, praised the judge’s action.“Judge Sumi confirmed today what we knew all along — that the bill stripping hundreds of thousands of hardworking Wisconsinites of their voice on the job was rammed through illegally in the dark of the night,” Neuenfeldt said.

In a statement, governor’s spokesman Cullen Werwie said: “The legislation is still working through the legal process. We are confident the provisions of the budget repair bill will become law in the near future.”
