Liberals and the Judiciary

Unwilling to accept the fact that Rebublicans had a resounding victory in Wisconsin last November, and that the Wisconsin legislature recently passed a bill restricting some union activity, Big Liberalism is on the march again.  This time their focus is the April 5 election for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

First a bit of background. The validity of the new law is now pending before the Wisconsin Supreme Court. That court currently leans to the right, with four tending to be conservative, and three tending to be liberal.   

Current Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, who tends to vote conservatively, is up for reelection on April 5.  His opponent is Joanne Kloppenburg, an assistant state attorney, an environmental lawyer, and a definite “left-leaner”.  Although Wisconsin Supreme Court elections are typically pretty docile, this one has taken on a life of its own. 

A liberal leaning outfit called the Greater Wisconsin Committee has thrown some $3 million into the race and launched a web site, ProsserEqualsWalker…, to whip heat against the Governor into the race.

One of the ads  against Justice Prosser, sponsored by Greater Wisconsin, was particularly offensive, untrue and, well, “sleazy”.  Apparently, the left will stop at nothing, including besmirching a good justice, to accomplish their goals.  But here is the interesting part.

At a recent debate between Justice Prosser and Ms. Kloppenburg, Ms Kloppenburg was asked by the judge whether she would ask that the ad be pulled.  You can go to the link and see the video, but, essentially she said “no”.

I’m certainly glad that someone with that moral character, or should I say, lack of moral character, isn’t running for the Florida Supreme Court.

    SOS:  for your sake, I'm glad, too.  I never would have made the leap that Wisconsin=sleaze, but with the recent hoopla with the public sector unions going batsh** crazy over losing collective bargaining, I guess sleaze will become de rigueur.

    This is probably one of the very few times where I can say, "Sheesh…I'm glad I live in Connecticut(?)"…hee hee hee!

    SOS, I don’t know if you are aware but?this story is sleazier than you let on.
    ?The judge who is currently attempting to block this law from being implemented, judge?Maryann Sumi, has some serious conflict of interest issues that don’t seem to bother alot of lefties in the state. For one, her husband and her son have serious union ties. This is interesting because Joanne Kloppenburg has taken campaign donations from her husband. This seems like the unions trying to stack the supreme court in Wisconsin.

    Be ye of good cheer.  While other states struggle with such trivia, Corrupticut's Legiscritters struggle with the really vital issues like a "Transgender Protection Bill" completely unmindful of a $3.5 billion deficit looming over 100% of the population.  Yes sir this is as much a priority as the recent debate over pardons for witches convicted in Corrupticut in the 1640s.  That we elect and pay these idiots is an indictment on us all.

      Bite your tongue, PV…I didn't vote for a single one of these morons.  And I shan't be held responsible for the uneducated votes cast by my neighbors.  Being a rube is a choice.  I choose not to be one.  Just as I'll choose to pack my bags and get out of CT within the next 5 years even if it does cost me $5 to leave via highway.  lol

    Obamacare is judged unconstitutional and it's business as usual. Arizona tries to enforce immigration laws already on the books – and the Feds sue Arizona. Wisconsin – and the Liberals give themselves hernias genuflecting for the "Rule of Law." The cornerstones of Liberalism – lies and hypocracy -displayed  in all their glory.

    The liberals are out of control because the silent majority was silent too long, enabling the libs to take good hold of all our rights.  Now we are all paying for those that slept these past decades, and to think as we are fighting for our rights back, we pass some people still yawning, and rubbing their eyes, asking what's going on. Complaining is good exercise for our face muscles but we need some hard exercising like standing up and pushing these libs out of our way, on our way to restore the nation.
