Conservative Picks for the Wisconsin Primary

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.

Amy Schumer is important in her own mind

Amy Schumer is important in her own mind

It’s bad when entertainers-turned-political-activists like Colin Kaepernick feel that their opinions are superior to the opinions of others because they have celebrity status based on something other than their governmental acumen. It’s worse when entertainers-turned-political-activists like Amy Schumer support other activists by propagandizing their fans through social media.

That’s what Amy Schumer just did. She also attempted to shame all Caucasian football players for not supporting their brother by kneeling.

Her latest display of activism came in the form of an Instagram post declaring to the world she will not be doing a Super Bowl ad this year. Mainstream media, on cue, took to the airwaves with this “blockbuster” story while social media echoed her sentiment like sheep.

The biggest parallel between Amy Schumer and Colin Kaepernick is that neither had the chops in their former professions to make it big, so they turned to activism to inflate their egos and justify their celebrity status.

Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?

Boko Haram continues its reign of terror

American media often neglects to report on Boko Haram, the Islamic State of west Africa. After a “resolution” was achieved following the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapping incident of 2014, the group has gone widely unreported by western media.

These men are butchers, arguably more dangerous than any other Islamic State operations and completely out of control as they roam Africa in search of innocent targets. The latest were a dozen farmers who were hacked to pieces by Boko Haram with their machetes.

Dozens Of Farmers Feared Killed In Borno By Boko Haram Insurgents

https://www.thenigerianvoice.com/news/271792/dozens-of-farmers-feared-killed-in-borno-by-boko-haram-insur.htmlA Civilian JTF Leader, Baba Kura Konomi on Saturday in Maiduguri disclosed to newsmen that the farmers were killed, without firing any shot from the guns mounted on the two trucks.

He said: “The insurgents used machetes instead of guns to kill the farmers who were working on their farmlands, located about 185-kilometres along Maiduguri-Damboa road.”

It isn’t just western media that’s ignoring them. Even local media often refrains from publishing stories about them while the government turns a blind eye, usually waiting until the stories are reported by outside agencies before acknowledging the events even happened.

At any random moment, residents anywhere in west Africa realize they may become targets.

Western news agencies do not cover Boko Haram because western media consumers do not seem to care about them. This attitude is not only dangerous for the victims. It empowers these terrorists to achieve their ultimate goal of spreading terror everywhere.

Jordan to play hardball over lease of 1000 acres to Israel

Jordan to play hardball over lease of 1000 acres to Israel

Jordan’s King Abdullah has indicated he will not renew a lease that has held for a quarter century with Israel that allowed Israeli farmers to cultivate around 1000 acres of land. The lease of these two areas was part of the 1994 peace treaty between the two Middle Eastern nations.

Jordan seeks to end Israel land lease – BBC News

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-45933805Earlier King Abdullah of Jordan issued a statement saying it wanted to end the lease, which has seen the two areas, covering a total of about 405 hectares (1,000 acres), cultivated by Israeli farmers.

The areas had always been a “top priority” for Jordan and the decision was based on “our keenness to take whatever is necessary for Jordan and Jordanians”, the statement said.

Not renewing the lease in this long-standing deal would not jeopardize peace directly, but it could be the first warning shot of a shift in policy from the Jordanians. They cite lack of progress in the Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement as a deciding factor, but it really comes down to pressure from inside the government as well as citizens on social media that likely prompted the unexpected move by King Abdullah.

My Take

We have seen and will continue to see a shift away from support of anything that has to do with Israel. Between the United Nations and the Muslim world, the walls will be pressed to close around Israel in an effort to pressure them towards a two-state solution.

We will know for sure where King Adbullah stands in the next year as the lease is negotiated before officially ending. If no agreement is reached, then we can assume Jordan is heading towards a more adversarial stance with their neighbors to the west.
