Who’s to stop him?
After a brief struggle, Bad Blaska has assumed control of the Policy Werkes from St. David the Meek and Humble.
Bad Blaska is itching to disrupt a meeting. Not just any meeting but a preening hootenanny of liberals, progressives and socialists scheduled for next Thursday 10-17-19 at the Goodman community center, 214 Waubesa St., Madison.
It is hosted by that terribly woke village scold State Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison; Alder Marsha Rummel, Progressive Dane; and “community advocate and activist” Brandi Grayson, Black Lives Matter. Their agenda: stop the Air Force’s new F-35 fighter jets from being deployed at Truax air field.
Ms. Grayson specializes in civil disobedience: shutting down rush hour traffic and disrupting meetings. Rummel and Taylor are her amen corners.
We’re thinking along the line of five or six vuvuzelas and a full-throated rendition of the Air Force anthem.
Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder
At ’em boys, Give ‘er the gun!
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing can stop the U.S. Air Force!
Hear Blaska his own self in this Grammy-worthy recording:
Who is to stop me?
Nor Governor Tony Evers, who is poised to veto a policy designed to protect the right of unpopular speakers to be heard on University of Wisconsin campuses. The Democrat(ic) governor would affirm the heckler’s veto. Antifa and other thugs are free to shout down anyone with whom they disagree. So much for sifting and winnowing.
WI State Journal? Capital Times? Neil Heinen? Bill Lueders? Nothing to see here?
Fixed the plaque on UW-Madison’s Bascom Hall:
“Whatever may be the limitations which trammel inquiry elsewhere, we believe that the great state University of Wisconsin should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found unless those ideas offend liberal sensibilities.”
More constitutional illiteracy
A presidential candidate vying for a major political party’s endorsement proposes to — in effect — fine religious institutions that do not kowtow to the Democrat agenda of celebrating gay marriage. Do not expect a single mainstream news media outlet to denounce Beto O’Rourke for threatening to pull churches’ tax exemption if they don’t conform.
Beto is not the only one ignorant of the U.S Constitution. The New York Times, driven to distraction by the Orange President, is entertaining an old FDR scheme: packing the Supreme Court.
Because “the resulting conservative court majority has proved strongly activist, with justices willing to substitute their own judgments for those of democratically elected legislators,” writes columnist David Leonhardt.
Blaska’s almost bottom line: David, David, David! (Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!) The court is not supposed to mimic the current legislature but to uphold the plain written language of the Constitution!
Platinum Subscriber Detritus: For that matter, when will Trump get credit for making China blink? Trump stepped away from a threatened increase in tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese imports. In return, China agreed to buy $40 billion of American agricultural products (compared to $24 billion annually before the trade war started). The stock market celebrated on Friday, rising 319.92 points, or 1.21% on the Dow Jones. While making progress on protecting intellectual property curtailing currency manipulation. Winning?
FINALLY (we promise): What does one make of professional basketball players who refuse an invite to the White House but kowtow to China’s autocrats?
