This Week in Fitzwalkerstan

By Jeff Simpson

Now that the Spring elections are over, its time to catch up on all we have been missing.   Here are some stories that have not gotten any, or at least real, coverage in the news.

1.  Scott Walker, desperately tried not to hold special elections for two seats that were open, because of he appointed some fellow Republicans to cushy state jobs to pad their pensions. 

One of the reasons Walker held off on filling the seat of Frank Lasee, was because he knew the end result would not be pretty for the WISGOP again.    He knew that Andre Jacque would then run for the Senate seat opening.

Andre Jacque was first elected in the right wing wave of 2010 and has been a solid player in the cuckoo caucus of Wisconsin Republicans ever since.  While he has a solid layer of support amongst the far right Appling contingent.

Jacque however, has zero support amongst the ALEC/WMC employees who treated him like a circus clown who performed for them when they needed his vote.

Now that Walker was forced to call a special election, and Jacque is running for the Senate District 1 seat, all of the people that work with Jacque are supporting a no name "business" man who refuses to ask or answer questions

The GOP have nothing but true disdain for the far right "evangelicals", especially when they start straying from the reservation and want to actually set the agenda and pass legislation.

Here, the lady that hit a cop, gives the wisgop a forum to hammer on Jacque(starts around 17 minutes in).

Jacque and Walker exposed that fact, we will see if Julianne and her friends can see that.

*  In Racine County, our valuable Wisconsin taxpayer dollars are being spent to kick Wisconsin Citizens out of their new homes because they are "blighted".
On the evening of March 20 a full room of Racine County residents assembled to make and hear public statements before the board of the Community Development Authority of Mt. Pleasant, Wisconsin. One item was on the agenda: the board’s first step in the designation of some 3,000 acres of agricultural land, farm houses and scattered, neatly maintained single-family homes as “blighted.” It would be the final step for the local authorities — vital cogs in the Foxconn-booster leadership chain that runs from local Tea Party officials, to Governor Scott Walker, and all the way up to President Donald Trump — to fulfill the promise to Taiwanese tech giant Foxconn to obtain and then turn over the land for their proposed industrial complex. 
The WisGop used to at least pretend to care about smaller government and local control! 

If you are upset that the Government is taking away beautiful dream homes at pennies on the dollar, just "Go Suck Lemons!"

*  Kentucky Governor Matt Blevins, is following the Walker public education plan and gutting it.   The teachers took the day to head to the Capitol to protest and make their voices be heard.   Bloviating Blevins had this to say:
"I guarantee you today, somewhere in Kentucky today, a child was sexually assaulted that was left home because there was nobody there to watch them," Bevin told reporters on Friday, April 13.
 The Governor, feels that teachers are babysitters and not teachers and while he thinks they are the first line defense for child molesters he still does not think that that warrants a fair days wage.

By the way if you want more words of wisdom from Mr. Blevins, he will be the keynote speaker this year at the Wisconsin Republican Convention.  Let's hope no child gets sexually assaulted while the parents are busy watching him give a brilliant speech. 

*  As the WisGOP continue to deny reality, one thing many of the far right nuts were complaining about was that the multi arrested Screnock did not hit Rebecca Dallet enough for giving a speech in San Francisco.

However, these same nonpartisan, impartial watchdogs, have been and continue to be extremely quiet about their hero, Scott Walker, traveling the country and begging for money from some of the worst people in the world.

One of those disgusting people, that Walker runs to often to kiss his rings, is the old fossil from Vegas Sheldon Adelson.

LAS VEGAS — Republicans made their annual sojourn to the lavish Venetian hotel here this weekend to kiss the ring of a benefactor they need more than ever: casino mogul Sheldon Adelson.Confronting the potential loss of one or both chambers of Congress in the midterms, and struggling to raise money against an energized Democratic base, the party is desperate for Adelson’s millions. So the praise at the annual Republican Jewish Coalition conference he hosts overflowed, even though the billionaire, attending the funeral of a close friend in Israel, wasn’t on hand.
The disgusting Adelson, will not be mentioned on our friends from the right wing's blogs between now and the election.

*  Scott Walker's good friend and all around horrible guy - Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, who has been indicted for blackmailing a woman he had an affair with to keep quiet, has now filed a restraining order to keep his Attorney General away from him. 

If these two do not define "Conservative reforms", no one does. 

* Finally we will leave you with this quote from our current Republican President, that will go down in history as one of the most inspiring:

Are we ready for another few years of a ridiculous circus act or will we vote adults in charge in November?
