Wisconsin Police: Volunteering for Defeat

Many Wi police labor leaders picked a fight they could have avoided.

There has been much discussion of winners, losers and the effect on public employee unions elsewhere in the US after the failure to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. But there has been little comment on one group of unionized workers that were unaffected by public employee union reform, yet joined the losing side anyway. And not once, but on three ...

Netroots Blues

Netroots Nation, the annual left wing gathering of activists and bloggers, concluded this weekend with a lukewarm response from its attendants.  To say it was lackluster would be generous.  In the wake of the conservative victory in the Wisconsin Recall election, where Scott Walker, the only governor to survive a recall effort, handily beat Democratic Mayor of Milwaukee Tom Barrett, ...

The Eye-Popping Wisconsin Story You Didn’t Read

walker wi background

The recall election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was a critical bellwether.

Liberal Delusion In Madison

Believe it or not, some liberals feel they didn’t lose, despite the curb stomping Tom Barrett took last night. Note to left-wingers: Elections can be called without all the votes being counted, especially when all the returns point to a landslide victory. (i.e 1984 presidential election) (h/t Dana Loesch)

Wisconsin and California: Big labor on the decline

Most of America is aware of what happened in Wisconsin. Governor Walker’s recall win was about balancing budgets and keeping care of the public treasury. Wisconsin is not the only place that happened last night. California voters also screamed out to unions “this far and no further”.

Tiananmen Square and Wisconsin

As a rule, these two places should have absolutely nothing in common. But, for the 5th of June, they both hold a place in history now – Tiananmen Square will live in infamy for the massacre in 1989, and Wisconsin for the first time a Governor survived a recall vote. I am not suggesting that there is any real way ...

ed shultz

Within minutes of every major news agency calling the Wisconsin recall election for Gov. Walker, MSNBC put their village idiot and resident union worshiper on the screen to give hope to hopeless progressives. Ed first plants the idea that money won the election because of a large in-flux of out-of-state money (no, I don’t think he means all that out-of-state union money.. ...

Gov. Scott Walker Survived His Recall Effort By A Landslide

After the most expensive recall election in Wisconsin history, Scott Walker has soundly beaten left wing efforts to eviscerate his agenda that has returned economic vigor to the state of Wisconsin.  What should have been a titanic battle between the two competing narratives, one being deficit spending and dependency peddling advocated on the left and lowering taxes and cutting spending to ...
