In the movie version of Stephen King’s novel, “Firestarter”, the heroine walks into the New York Times building in Manhattan to expose government corruption but in the novel, her savior would be the Rolling Stone magazine.
That publication used to have the reputation of being a radical ‘gonzo’ magazine with the likes of Hunter S. Thompson writing on politics and in 1981 it still practiced respectable journalism. That reputation has been seriously tarnished with the recent publication of a campus rape story that critics say was poorly researched and may in fact be totally false. Rolling Stones was forced to issue an apology to its readers not once but twice and now the Fraternity that was named in the article but never contacted by the RS author is considering legal action for slander. This example of shoddy journalism is just the latest confirmation of the decline and fall of the Fourth Estate. If your only source for current events and breaking news is from local newspapers and television, you may not be getting the whole story. In fact, you may be getting a huge snow job.
Because the mainstream or lamestream media has lost its journalistic integrity so much of today’s chaos can be directly led to their intentionally false reportage. There are very few genuine journalists left on the major television networks but I can only name one off the top of my head and that is Jake Tapper. Sharyl Attkisson was another but she has left CBS for independence and has written a book exposing the mindset of the liberal media.

War On Terror: The Taliban outdoes even the Islamic State in its latest atrocity extravaganza. In deploring the attack, the president conveniently omits mention of the group he led the U.S. in surrender to.
British Comedian John Cleese in his farcical show “Fawlty Towers” got howls with his skit about hotel staff being under strict orders not to “mention the war” while German guests were staying. Cleese’s buffoonish hotel owner Basil Fawlty preceded to ask them if they’d like some “Hermann Goering” when he meant “pickled herring.”
Back in 2008, Cleese offered candidate Obama his services as speechwriter — a joke, presumably. But who knows, maybe Cleese is helping craft President Obama’s statements. Because in reacting to a blood-curdling Taliban attack on a Pakistan school on Tuesday that lasted over eight hours and left at least 132 children and 10 staff, including the principal, dead, the president didn’t mention the Taliban.

My name is Judge James Daley, and I am writing to ask for your assistance as I run for the Wisconsin State Supreme Court against activist Justice Ann Walsh Bradley.
Would you be willing to email my nomination papers to the members of your county party and encourage them to sign and circulate them on my behalf so my name appears on the ballot in the Spring Election on April 7, 2015. The nomination paper, along with the rules of circulation, can be downloaded at the end of this message.
I realize Wisconsin is coming off of a grueling midterm election and much has been asked of you and your volunteers, but the 2015 Spring Election is as important as any other - especially to the integrity of Wisconsin’s highest court.
I believe in an impartial judicial system which fully adheres to the boundaries set by the Constitutions of the United States and State of Wisconsin. It is essential that no judge interject his or her personal opinion into matters before the court, and judges must not be activists who legislate from the bench.
As a Brigadier General with 36 years of service to the state and country, I know what it takes to be a strong, effective leader. I have served three terms as Rock County District Attorney, and I was appointed circuit court judge by Governor Tommy Thompson in January of 1989. Following the appointment, I have been re-elected five times to the bench and have been the presiding judge in Rock County since. Today, I am running to represent Wisconsin on the State Supreme Court.
Can I count on you and your county party members to help me circulate nomination papers among friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors?
In order for everyone’s hard work to count, the rules of circulating nomination papers must be followed exactly. Individuals may begin circulating papers TODAY. Once electors have filled in their signature, name, street number or rural rout, municipality of residence, and date, the circulator must fill out the Certification of the Circulator at the bottom of each page to complete the sheet.
I ask that the papers be returned in the mail no later than Tuesday, December 23, 2014 so my campaign has a chance to review them. If you have any questions, or would like additional papers to circulate, feel free to call Brit Schiel on my campaign at (608) 352-0620, or visit www.daleyforwisconsin.net.
Again, please return your fully or partially completed papers (with the Certification of Circulator section completely filled out) by December 23, 2014 to:
Daley for Supreme Court Committee
1136 Summerhill Drive
Janesville, WI 53546-3723
Thank you for your assistance. I appreciate your help getting me on the ballot!

The eugenics movement is alive and well, still influencing public policy
The title is a literally untranslatable bit of National Socialist jargon which is usually clumsily rendered into English as: “life unworthy of life.”
It was used in the discussion of what are today called “quality of life” issues regarding people born with physical and mental defects, suffering from incurable ailments, and seemingly at the end of their “useful” lives. Another quaint term for such people, likewise untranslatable in its sheer cruelty, was nutzlose Fresser, “useless eaters” (to convey a little more of the original’s flavor: fressen is what animals do, essen is what humans do).
The doctrine embodied in these terms was hardly original with the Nazis (a shorthand expression, too widely used, which conceals the actual nature and origins of the movement called the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, or “National Socialist German Workers’ Party”). Its origins lay in the eugenics movement, which was a feature of late 19th and early 20th century Western “civilization.” This was one of the more sinister developments of Darwinistic evolutionary theory.

Most states already require voters to think ahead.
AFTER ALL THE nasty brawling — not just in Wisconsin, but across the nation — over whether Voter ID amounts to sensible security at the polls or a barely veiled suppression effort, a partisan battle over scrapping same-day registration in the state seems unavoidable.
Currently, Wisconsin is one of just a handful of states that allow unregistered individuals to come to the polls on election day and take care of the business right then and there. A substantial majority of states require registration well in advance. For example, in Illinois, registration closes about a month before election day.
The tradition in Wisconsin, however, has been far more liberal. Some like that. Some think it’s ripe for fraud, and creates an undue last-minute burden on election officials.
