The Capitol Chaos triggered hundreds of angry threats. You probably remember how heated it was in 2011, just after the collective bargaining law was introduced. Tens of thousands of protesters packed the capitol, and that’s when lawmakers had to be escorted around the building by police for their own protection.
There are more than one-hundred pages of threats made to the governor and his family. Most of the threats are from 2011, and many too graphic to share. Page after page, threats to kill the governor and his family.

And liberals claim they are “tolerant” ?
Today, State Representative Jeff Stone (R-Greendale) sent letters to both the Government Accountability Board (GAB) and the City of Milwaukee Election Commission regarding the extended hours that were kept during the recent June 5th recall election. Madison and Milwaukee went to unusual lengths to accommodate early in-person absentee voting, such as keeping extended evening hours, including staying open on the weekends and the Memorial Day holiday for the June recall election.
“I have asked that the GAB inform me of any other municipalities that kept expanded hours to the extent that Milwaukee and Madison did,” said Stone. “Early absentee in-person voting is an option voters have with regard to casting their ballot, but I don’t know of any municipalities, other than Milwaukee or Madison, that expanded their normal business hours to this extent,” Stone said. “On a typical Election Day in Wisconsin, the polls are uniformly open from 7 A.M. to 8 P.M. regardless of locality. How is it equitable for voters in one community to have greater access to cast in-person absentee ballots than voters in another?”

This week, Governor Scott Walker joined some brave Wisconsin veterans to officially light the Capitol Christmas Tree. Unfortunately, some protestors tried to make the event about themselves.
In addition to turning their backs on not just Scott Walker, but also some of our brave veterans, protestors gave a Nazi salute at the Capitol Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. What a disgrace to our veterans and to a great annual event to celebrate Christmas in Wisconsin.

Time: Saturday, November 19, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: Madison, WI, State Capitol
Governor Walker’s policies are working for the Wisconsin taxpayer. His budget reforms have created surpluses of money that now can be reinvested back into the state and all of Wisconsin is the better for it. The Anti Walker crowd is having a big kick off event at the Capital this day as well. We will be there to show in a non confrontational way that Wisconsin stands behind our fearless Governor. It is time for the Silent Majority to wake up to deliver this most important message. More details to follow as they develop.

Madison — Those who sue the state would get to choose their court venue under a bill the Assembly approved early Friday and sent to Gov. Scott Walker.
The Assembly passed the measure 58-34 a week after the Senate approved it 18-15, with Democratic Sen. Jim Holperin of Conover joining all Republicans. Both houses are controlled by Republicans.
Now, lawsuits against the state in most cases must be filed in Dane County, the seat of state government. The bill — backed by Republicans who have lambasted Dane County judges as too liberal — would allow citizens to sue the state in any county they wanted.

The residues of liberalism’s Wisconsin Woodstock — 1960s radicalism redux: operatic lamentations, theatrical demonstrations and electoral futilities — are words of plaintive defiance painted on sidewalks around the state capitol. “Solidarity forever” was perhaps painted by a graduate student forever at the University of Wisconsin. “Repubs steal elections” is an odd accusation from people who, seeking to overturn the 2010 elections, cheered Democratic lawmakers who fled to Illinois — a congenial refuge for labor-subservient Democrats — in order to paralyze the duly elected legislature. The authors of the sidewalk graffiti have at least read Jefferson: “The tree of liberty is watered by the blood of tyrants.” The tyrant is “$cott Walker American Fa$ci$t.”
Who, on a recent morning, was enjoying the view and the turn of events. From the governor’s mansion on the shore of sparkling Lake Mendota you can see on the far shore the famously liberal university, from which came many of those who protested his “budget repair” bill that already seems to have repaired many communities’ budgets, in addition to the state’s.
