Sixty-Million Dollar Union Assault on Wisconsin Governor Walker

By Gary Larson

Tora! Tora! Tora! No, it's no sneak attack. Nationwide unions spearheaded by the public employee unions, teachers' unions in the vanguard, have Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in their cross hairs. They aim to shoot him down - figuratively, but of course! -- in June 5 recall elections.

Led by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Service Employees International Union (SEI) and Wisconsin-based and other states' teachers unions, their low-level attack is aimed at sinking Gov. Walker and his Republican majority in the Wisconsin Assembly, thus to reclaim power over how taxpayer dollars are spent.

The campaign seeks to dissemble facts and distract from - or rather, ignore -- real issues, mainly fiscal. Put simply, unions want a return to golden oldie days when they, through their Democrat marionettes, pretty much ran things at the Capitol in Madison.

To win, vituperative anti-Walker forces are putting up an estimated $60 million in ad dollars, all derived from union brethren from all parts of America. Call this solidarity. Last year union activists unleashed 3,000 recall petition carriers across Wisconsin, apparently not content to await the next election.

Tempers would have cooled by then, and salutary effects of Gov. Walker's budgetary reforms might be more fully felt. More than 900,000 Wisconsinites signed on the recall petitions to trigger recall of a duly-elected Walker, his lieutenant governor and four Republican legislators.

Among signatures collected were at least 29 journalists and 25 circuit court judges, besides rank and file dittoing Democrats doing their union thing. They did so, apparently, shamelessly. To put that number, 900,000 signatures, into perspective, Gov. Walker tallied 1.1 million votes to be elected in 2010. This suggests a razor-thin margin, either way, to come June in the recall elections.

Unions' all-out campaign to unseat him, to regain a majority in the Assembly, is a sort of masterstroke at jury disqualification. In short, forget the facts, toss the bums out. It is a battle about to become increasingly bloody. Consider a few of the squalid moments that led to this rare recall election:

Near riots in Madison last February. . . union folks, teachers mostly, occupying the Capitol. . . chanting hateful slogans. . . closing down schools. . . taking bogus "sick leave " to protest . . . state senators on union orders fleeing the state. . . attempts at intimidate all who disagreed with unions' special interests. . . death threats for Walker and fellow Republicans. . . talk of boycotting Wisconsin businesses not bowing to union demands. Why, even threats were floated of a statewide general strike to close down the state to get unions' way (again) with state's taxpayer dollars.

Oh it was a mob-like circus,and ordinary taxpayers, well, they could go to Hades, or feed the Union Beast with ever-increasing tax loads, if only Walker would get the hell out of the way.

(Want more examples of the unions' anti-Walker nuttiness? My article, "Thuggery in Wisconsin Union Battle," relates acts of union goons and some Democrat Party faithful to regain power, apparently at any cost, in Wisconsin.)

Polarization, thy name is Wisconsin politics. A close race it will be, an even split is forecast, in spite of Gov. Walker's and the new Republican majority's considerable accomplishments in a such a short span. Such as wiping out a $3.6 billion budget deficit (without raising taxes) and assisting local governments and school boards balance their budgets. In short, bringing fiscal sanity to the state.

In a recent NBC/Marist poll, 48 percent of Wisconsinites approved the job Walker is doing. Incongruently, in light of fiscal facts, 48 percent of Badger State residents polled disapproved. Among Republicans, 91 percent gave him high fives and 84 percent of Democrats did not. (Is the pope Catholic?)

(Aside: In the solitude of the voter's booth, away from intimidation, thoughtful and informed Democrats might express their approval to Gov. Walker's reforms to save their state from economic ruin. Or is this simply a pipe dream?)

Independents in the poll were split down the middle - 47 percent approved of the job Walker is doing, 47 percent disapproved. Six percent couldn't decide. "No Opinions" might have masked quiet approval of budget-hawk Walker's ways. (One can always hope good sense quietly prevails, although comedian Al Franken's win in next-door Minnesota defeats hope of good sense pervading in the electorate.)

To woo independents, Big Labor will stir the cauldron with $60 million in advertising, i just one state, in one election. Wow! Their campaign will toss tons of muck upon the wall to see what sticks. (Okay, so I cleaned up an old analogy.)

Stirring animosity for Walker and the new majority GOPers will be the same ol' strategy: Vilify 'em, dehumanize, ignore real issues, change the subject. Same as before, union strategists will try to stir the base (that, in more ways than one) to portray Walker as Hitler-like, for limiting what they (and union-friendly news media) like to call "rights."

Don't be fooled. It is a cover story to regain their do-not-touch superabundant taxpayer-paid entitlements, once called "fringe benefits" quite beyond the reach of the mere private sector.

While media might revel in the $60 million to come, they have not (yet), to their credit, uniformly assailed Gov. Walker, at least in frontal editorial attacks. Oh yes, snippy blind-side attacks have put the shiv in his back, but that's to be expected from liberal media. Such as, say a front-page piece recently in the neighboring Minneapolis Star Tribune.

It sought desperately to link a Walker-supported self-defense law in Wisconsin (a "home castle law") with, of all things, the Trayvon Martin case in Florida. (See "Echoes of Trayvon in Wisconsin Shooting.") Reporter Richard Meryhew puts the whammy on an "embattled Republican Gov. Walker" for a bill enacted by the Wisconsin Assembly on a yawning, bi-partisan basis. Oh well. Such stretches are "in" as news media types go to bat, not very subtly, against Gov. Walker, on behalf of their union kinfolk.

Consider this anti-Walker spin on the Associated Press regional wire, by Madison-based Todd Richmond, on April 21, as found in the Wisconsin State Journal. Note the words I've emphasized in Italics to denote the artful spin job:

Gov. Walker "...quietly reinstated a program to give merit raises and bonuses to some state workers even as he preached cost-cutting and pushed through a law reducing most public workers' pay and eliminating their union rights."

Catch his drift? Just one in the huge spin bag of journalists' twists. Most reporters, members of the Newspaper Guild, are in sync with their union brothers' and sisters, and ever faithful to the Party line. Call this bias a Sad Fact of Life.

Wisconsinites will be hit by a barrage of adverting of all sorts spelling out doomsday if Walker and his R colleagues are elected again. In the end, the outcome of the election will be determined by independent voters. (And may God bless them with good sense!)

We can only hope, but certainly not trust, independent voters will think straight, not be befuddled by hateful, dishonest, fact-twisting propaganda, nor succumb to the smoke and mirrors and bogus assertions of "rights" for entirely selfish union ends.

If Big Labor loses in Wisconsin, after a drain of $60 million dollars of members' dues extracted, involuntarily in most cases, from paychecks, it means their ideological kin, President Obama and his pals for a more socialistic America, are in even deeper do-do come November.

So the $60 million question in Wisconsin becomes: Will John Q. Public see clearly the issues, and what's at stake, to make the right call on June 5 in Wisconsin? As it is said, we live in such interesting times.

Thanx, MG.

And I 'painfully' read thru it....;}

" The estimated price tag for the recall will shatter that record, perhaps going as high as $80 million, according to Mike McCabe, director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign government watchdog group.

McCabe called the epic battle “a shock to the system” of Wisconsin voters, who are unaccustomed to the national political spotlight.

“We’ve never seen these amounts of money raised and spent in state elections in Wisconsin before,” said McCabe, who expects Walker to marginally outspend Democrats and the unions. “We’ve also never seen these levels of outside interference. The amount of money flowing from outside into Wisconsin is just unprecedented. We don’t have anything in our past that you could compare this too.”

And I 'painfully' read thru it.

There are hundreds of other citations. Of course most are a repeat but the figure of sixty million has been around ever since the recall got legs.

Whether it is true of not, I don't know. Living in Wisconsin I've not seen any evidence of that kind of volume on TV/Glossy/Mailings/Telephone.

Right now we are falling asleep listening to Barrett and am dreading the moment when Kathleen Falk's campaign starts spending some of the union money promised to her.

One thing is clear, the good old boys and the baby chairman of the WDP did a number on Falk and that is going to guarantee a Walker landslide.

And until we go back to paper ballots (and ALL of the Untold since 2000 Diebold 'irregularities' are addressed) I don't believe Any poll results.

"election integrity expert John Washburn of Wisconsin Fair Elections explained to us that Yaeger had been both hired and trained by Nickolaus herself.

The temporary replacement by her Deputy offered little comfort for Washburn. Prompted by recent disturbing news that elections run on electronic tabulation systems identical to those used in Waukesha County had recently been found to have named several losing candidates as "winners" in elections in a different state, Washburn, a Republican, suggested he had little basis for confidence in whatever reported results might come out of the state's most Republican-leaning county in the upcoming recalls.

It appears that Washburn is not alone. Late Friday, it was reported that a number of the municipalities in Waukesha will be bypassing the County Clerk's office entirely by first sending their election night results straight to the Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.), the state's top election agency. But it may be new concerns about computer-tallied results in the Badger State that present even greater problems for the historic elections beginning next month in the Badger State...

As reported by Sarah Millard of the Brookfield Patch... It looks like the office of embattled Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus won't be able to bungle the counting of votes in next month's recall primary election after safeguards are being put in place."

"In other words, if the new procedures work, it will result only in the public knowing earlier what the completely unverified computer tallies are reported to be.

New Concerns About Recall Results

Concerns about accurate results of the upcoming recall elections in Waukesha have been multiplied of late thanks to a remarkable software failure during a March 13th election in Palm Beach County, FL on the very same model of computerized tabulators as those used in Waukesha (and other counties around the state, as well as some 14 other states across the nation).

During Palm Beach County elections, paper ballot optical-scanners made by Sequoia Voting Systems had incorrectly reported a number of candidates winning their races on Election Night, even though they'd received fewer votes than their opponents. Luckily, the failure was spotted by the Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections during a post-election spot-check of the paper ballots some days later. The correct results of the elections later were determined by a 100% hand-count of those ballots. No such post-election spot-check is carried out after elections in Wisconsin."

"We'll never know"....but couldn't...;}

"The BRAD BLOG has been covering the election administration failures and disasters of Nickolaus since 2010, months before she managed to achieve national infamy during the state's April 5th Supreme Court election when, following the unofficial announcement of a slim victory by challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, Nickolaus claimed to have discovered some 14,000 votes that she'd failed to report on Election Night. The new numbers flipped the results and awarded a 7,500 vote lead to incumbent state Supreme Court Justice David "The Strangler" Prosser, her old boss in the state Assembly Republican Caucus.

Nickolaus' failure resulted in a call for a state-wide recount and a months-long hand-count process during which thousands of ballot bags were discovered to have been open or torn, featuring missing or changed security seals and serial numbers and even computer-printed results tapes indicating they'd been printed days prior to the election.

Despite what challenger Kloppenburg described as a "cascade of widespread irregularities" and a failure by the state G.A.B. to review hundreds of officials exhibits and thousands of pages of documentation of those irregularities, Prosser was eventually certified as the winner, assuring a Right-leaning majority on the state Supreme Court."

"He advises that voters with concerns about results of the elections should go to polling places just before they close in order to oversee the poll closing process and the printing of results from computer tabulators at the precinct.

"Show up for the closing of the elections at eight-o'clock. At that point it's an open meeting, turn on the camera," advised Washburn on the Malloy Show earlier this month.

Once polls close, he notes, the proceedings are then an open meeting by the local board of canvassers which may be recorded by cameras and other devices.

"Record what you see," he says. "If you see anything weird, insist that it be put on the Inspector's Report, because if it ain't on the official election report, it didn't happen."

Admit it dumkoft, you missed the bold comma in the exchange.

The sentence in question, word for word, copied and pasted from your original post...

"Conservatives are kinder versions of liberals who would rather give a man a meal then a ticket to a shelter." ...

is a comparative statement, an either/or. If it were not either/or but both, then it deals with a timeline. IF it had a comma, THEN I could see your point, but it doesn't.

EXAMPLES:


~Another pair of words that I see misused far more often than not is than and then.
~He is taller than I am.
~Other than the interest on a small inheritance, he had no income.
~Today's students certainly do seem to read less than students in previous generations did.
~We learned more on the playground than we did in the classroom.
~Despite their lack of flavor, the hothouse tomatoes cost far more than those from the farmers' market.


THEN

     Then is used either as a time marker or with a sequence of events.


EXAMPLES:

~I took all of the exams in the morning, and then I spent the rest of the day catching up on sleep.
~Back then we knew what was expected of us.
~I bought apples from this orchard last summer, but I seem to remember paying more for them then.
~Look over the study guide first, and then if you still have questions bring them up in class.

I'm in their heads so much you'd think I was a really hot male goat or a gay porn star.

You have settled for mere "spoils" while I have gone after the crown jewel err Jewess. That's right... she loves me and I loathe her.

The sentence in question, word for word, copied and pasted from your original post...

"Conservatives are kinder versions of liberals who would rather give a man a meal then a ticket to a shelter." ...

You accused me of making a typo (which I clearly did...then for than) but I rejoined with how do you know I didn't make a typo by forgetting a comma...which I then placed in the reply which then read:

"Conservatives are kinder versions of liberals who would rather give a man a meal, then a ticket to a shelter." ...

See?.........<|> just up there between the 'meal' and the 'then'. It missed your attention and now you must feel the need to grovel in your shame.

Since it was deliberate on my part, you are forgiven, so rise and go off to do good deeds.

Or, as Spock used to say, "Oh, fuck off Jim, I hope you die tonight dead broke."...Or words similar.

I don't think anyone really cares about you but when your name comes up most think while you probably smell like an ill-kept goat, your fixation with gay themes clearly indicates your latent homosexuality but most certainly no one is under the illusion you are a star, gay porn or otherwise.

You do drive nice cars though.

What did you do to Gatlin? He looked up to you as the leader of the EPIC FAILURE. Did he die?

What did you do to Gatlin?

Nothing.

He looked up to you as the leader...

No one lead anyone. Only the guilty paranoids think that.

of the EPIC FAILURE.

Your delusional wishful thinking fails in the fact that yukon prevails.

Did he die?

I certainly hope not.

The easy way to avoid me, is to not post shit about me. You're as relevant to me as that last juicy, taco bell fart I just let.

BTW, the car comment was cute but only a simpleton would not know the alias I'm using at lp. Oh, ping gatlin and let him know what it is.

(Hi, yukie, I know you stalk me and read every one of my posts. How'd you like my calling you Elmer Fuudgepacker, the killer of w'rascally squirrels this morning.)

He is probably locked upped in his cage as he has boasted about. You know the one, HIS compound while a retired BSer in Arizona living off the fat of the land at taxpayer's expense. He never did receive anything more than a stipend of a retirement approximating $361/month did he?

Your jealousy has been no secret. I believe he has already told you he is too busy making money to bother with you.

Me? I'm laid up or down in bed and bored beyond reason, but that doesn't mean I'm going to play games with you at LP.

You and calcon can exchange banalities there to your heart's content. I'm sure that yukon and others will continue to place you where you belong without any help from me.

OMG! What can we do to help you out of your desperate misery? Shall we call for your nurse, "yukon" that has given you tender loving care?

There is a picture of his pet goat's head in a bucket over at LP. I don't know who did it... but it made my day.

Now you're back to form and all is well.

Nah, I'm too good at goofing for that to be true.
