Conservative Picks for the Wisconsin Primary

Wisconsin has on of the better organized Republican parties. It enabled Scott Walker to protect himself upon recall, a situation where most fail. Wisconsin is in for a big shakeup with the resignation of Paul Ryan. Ryan not seeking reelection opens up the critical first district. It also enables Paul Ryan to play a larger role in state politics. Ryan is a great example of being Conservative when not in power. But once given the scepter as Speaker of the House, he changed. And by the time a Republican was in the Whitehouse, he impeded the advancement of conservative agenda, particularly with budgeting and spending, his prior specialties. Wisconsin may be far from free of his influence, but in the meantime, Conservatism has opportunities to advance, particularly in the Senate race. Leah Vurkmir is an excellent candidate to flip the seat red in November.

Best Picks: Nick Polce, Leah Vurkmir
Worst Picks: Paul Nehlen, Jennifer Vipond
Best Race: US Senate
Worst Race: District 1

US Senate

This race is a classic Conservative vs the Establishment scenario, or so some would have you believe… The race comes down to Kevin Nicholson and Leah Vurkmir. Leah Vurkmir has the backing of the Wisconsin Republican machine. This sounds bad, except this machine is better functioning than most states. Leah Vurkmir is actually one of Wisconsin’s top conservatives in the state senate. Her record provides credibility to her ability to cut spending and repeal Obamacare. She has the backing of most local politicians, including the RINOs in the House. Kevin Nicholson fancies himself as an outsider. He has the endorsement of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Other Conservative organizations have also weighed in on his behalf. Kevin Nicholson was initially the choice of Steve Bannon. So an outsider he may be but a Conservative? That is the question. He stance on his website are solid but no more Conservative than Vurkmir’s. The biggest knock on Vurkmir is the endorsements she has from RINOs. With two solid Conservative candidates, the next level of vetting should focus more on the general election. By all means, Vurkmir has a greater chance in the general. The GOP is organized in Wisconsin and can more easily flip this seat with Vurkmir at the nomination.

Conservative Pick: Leah Vurkmir

District 1

With Paul Ryan leaving, this Conservative district can send an actua Conservative to DC. There are three notable candidates. The first is Paul Nehlen. Nehlen got crushed, multiple times, by Paul Ryan, before he went heretical Jew-hater that got him kicked off of Twitter. Hard pass. The second is Brian Steil. Steil has the GOP backing, and is most likely to win. Still, the support of a disgraced Paul Ryan doesn’t covey Conservatism. Steil’s listed positions are very blandNick Polce is the third candidate. He was running before Paul Ryan dropped out. Nick Polce delivers on articulating Conservative ideas. Among them are making Social Security voluntary; cutting Congressional pay and benefits; removing corporate subsidies.

Conservative Pick: Nick Polce

District 2

There are no Republicans in this race

District 3

Steve Toft is the only Republican running.

District 4

There are two Republicans in this race. The more serious candidate appears to be Cindy Werner. It’s a mystery how she would vote, but her campaign is a longshot.

Conservative Pick: Cindy Werner

District 5

Jim Sensenbrenner is a career politician, but he is a solid Conservative. His Liberty Score of 80 is the highest out of Wisconsin. But given his decades in DC, a younger Conservative would be the pick. Alas, his challenger is weak on protecting libertyJennifer Vipond is also likely to support funding for Planned Parenthood. Her position causes one to doubt her stated belief that abortion is a “tragedy”.

Conservative Pick: Jim Sensenbrenner

District 6

It’s hard to gauge whether Glenn Grothman is a RINO or a Conservative. His voting record is so inconsistent, it’s hard to tell. It’s rare for someone’s voting record to be this inconsistent. He is unopposed.

District 7

Sean Duffy is an unchallenged RINO.

District 8

Mike Galleger is an unchallenged RINO.

Baby of Hanukkah terror victims pronounced dead

The young couple had the chance to meet their son, Tinok (“baby”) ben Shira Yael.

 The baby son of Amichai and Shira-Ish Ran, delivered by emergency Caesarean section at just 30 weeks, was pronounced dead on Wednesday, according to a statement by the Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

The young couple had the chance to meet their son, Tinok (“baby”) ben Shira Yael.

His 21-year-old mother remains hospitalized in stable condition after surgery. She was shot on Sunday night—the last night of Hanukkah—by Palestinian terrorists, along with her husband, who was also shot several times but has been reported to be recovering, and five other people at a bus stop near the town of Ofra in Samaria.

Shira and Amichai Ish-Ran married eight months ago and moved to Elon Moreh. Shira is studying education at Orot Israel College in Elkana, and Amichai is a yeshivah student in Elon Moreh.

“Our hearts are with Shira and Amichai on the loss of their 4-day-old baby who does not even have a name,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at an event in Israel on Wednesday night. “These despicable murderers are the most despicable criminals on earth. The security forces are pursuing the murderers. I hope that there will be news on this soon. We will not rest until we have found them and brought them to justice.”

Education Minister Naftali Bennett called the death a tragedy, writing on Facebook: “Our heart is with Shira and Amichai, the heart cries out.”

According to The Jerusalem Post, the baby would be laid to rest on Wednesday night at the Mount of Olives Jewish Cemetery.

6 years after Rupert Sheldrakes censored TEDx talk The Science Delusion continues drawing eyeballs

I remember the first time I watched Rupert Sheldrake’s TEDx presentation. In an example of the Streisand Effect, TED’s attempt to bury and warn people from watching it ended up magnifying the spread of the video.

Yesterday, I referred to it with a friend, assuming everyone has surely seen it by now. Of course, I was very wrong and was disappointed to find it was hard to find in the usual places. I turned to YouTube and found it listed as a “banned” talk, but even this bootleg version had over 2 million views.

I don’t want to spoil anyone’s viewing of it, but I’ll say this: in a world where scientific dogmas dominate not only the politics of the scientific community but also the motivations, this particular talk is one that must be shared.

Ben Shapiro calls out the utter hypocrisy of the U.N. for not condemning Hamas

Ben Shapiro calls out the utter hypocrisy of the U.N. for not condemning Hamas

There are two forms of terrorism in the eyes of the United Nations. There’s terrorism that should be condemned and terrorism perpetrated against the nation of Israel. The former is universally condemned. The latter has a mitigating circumstances that makes it impossible for them to condemn terrorists or acts of violence. That mitigating circumstance is the fact that it’s being committed against Israel.

Apparently, that makes terrorism palatable to a majority in the United Nations. As conservative commentator Ben Shapiro puts it, Israel is a “disfavored” member of the international community.

“Hamas isn’t hiding the ball. It is evil. It celebrates evil. It pays terrorists to commit acts of evil. But the international community isn’t hiding the ball either when its members refuse to condemn terrorism as terrorism when it is directed against disfavored members of the international community.”

Read the whole article by Shapiro on DailyWire:

The ‘International Community’ Isn’t A Community. It’s A Rogue’s Gallery.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/39304/international-community-isnt-community-its-rogues-ben-shapiroTake, for example, the United Nations’ recent decision not to condemn the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. This week, the U.N. General Assembly voted on a resolution condemning the group for “repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk,” as well as for using assets to construct “tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas.” The U.N., which requires a two-thirds vote to pass a General Assembly resolution, voted down the resolution — 87 nations in favor, 58 against, 32 abstaining. All in all, that means that more nations voted against ratifying the resolution — 90 — than in favor of it.
