I like this guy.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker really drives liberals crazy. He’s obviously far from alone in that category, of course. Just about any high-profile person who frequently and boldly speaks the truth drives liberals crazy.
But Gov. Walker drives them crazy without really saying all that much. He drives them crazy with action – specifically by applying solutions that liberals insist cannot and should not be applied.

Mike Johnson, Owner of Sugarfire Smokehouse, is in to talk about the backlash his restaurant is getting for letting Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker eat at his restaurant.
Before Governor Scott Walker took office in January of 2011, Wisconsin was seeing high unemployment, stagnating incomes and a high tax burden. Fast-forward four years: The state enjoys strong growth in employment and improvements in living standards through higher after-tax incomes. Thanks to a fiscal policy of reducing tax and regulatory burdens while balancing the budget, Wisconsin now outperforms many of its neighbors.

On the ground, the emotion coming from supporters is impressive.
You know by now that Scott Walker has officially thrown his hat in the ring. We were there, as several thousand people, young and old and many in wheelchairs, waited over two hours on a sultry afternoon in the Waukesha County Exposition Center. We came to listen to the forty-fifth governor of Wisconsin bid to become the forty-fifth president of the United States; the Republican Party of Wisconsin received over five thousand RSVPs for the event.

Tonette Tarantino’s year of sorrow came when she was only 30. First she lost the grandmother who helped raise her, like a second mother. Weeks later her brother, her only sibling, died of bone cancer. Then her husband died of kidney failure.
Now, as Tonette Walker, the wife of Wisconsin governor and GOP presidential hopeful Scott Walker, looks back, she says those brutal 12 months in the mid-1980s prepared her for her life ahead — and most especially for the rough ride of politics.

The good doctor Hunter S. Thompson once observed that “it never got weird enough” for him.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Kevin Kennedy, the director of Wisconsin’s speech regulator integrally tied to the probe into dozens of conservative organizations, is a longtime “professional friend” of former IRS tax-exempt director Lois Lerner.
Lerner led the Obama administration’s IRS division accused of targeting conservative groups seeking 501(c)(4) nonprofit status. The Senate Finance Committee is looking into more than 6,000 emails from Lerner once thought to be lost.

because we value our Independence FROM Government NOT Dependence on the government.” -Governor Scott Walker
Just weeks away from likely entering the 2016 presidential race, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is putting his Republican rivals on notice that he plans to position himself as a get-it-done governor in a field with several members of Congress and former chief executives.
Mr. Walker’s latest audition came Saturday night when he keynoted the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Patriot’s Gala in Washington, carefully mixing withering attacks on President Obama with folksy Midwest humor and a healthy touch of faith and support for Israel.

Over the past several months, I’ve had the privilege of traveling around the country with Our American Revival, sharing our message of how to tackle difficult problems and repeatedly win tough policy fights with bold, conservative reforms. We’ve spoken with thousands of hard-working Americans, and the response has been incredible.
But we’ve done more than just talk. We’ve listened. In state after state, the message we are hearing from people is simple: America needs a new leader – from outside of Washington – with a record of not just talking about conservative principles, but fighting for them and winning with them.

Fresh off its widely-mocked exclusive on the traffic citations given Marco and Jeannette Rubio – fewer than one per year, combined – the New York Times has an in-depth look at Scott Walker and the wealthy conservatives who backed him throughout his rise to national prominence. It’s a classic of the genre.
The article is more sophisticated than the awkward and error-filled attempted hit on Walker by Gail Collins from the Times editorial page, who blamed Walker for layoffs that took place before he had been elected. And it avoids the kind of over-the-top claims that require corrections. But the piece nonetheless makes clear that its authors believe Walker’s views are far out of the mainstream and that he owes his success to wealthy conservatives eager to exploit a simpleton as the vessel for their ideological goals.

Exclusive — Walker: We’d Be Sending in Navy to Stop Illegals if They Were Swarming Our Sea Ports Like They Do Southern Border
Republican Party 2016 primary frontrunner Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told Breitbart News exclusively that if the invasion of illegal aliens that’s currently swarming across America’s southern border were coming in via America’s sea ports, the government would be sending in the Navy to stop it. Instead, the federal government—despite not having to at all—chooses, he says, to leave the U.S. border with Mexico wide open.
