Who will be next to flip on Satya?


Have you noticed? One of the two women arrested for the beatdown
of State Sen. Tim Carpenter was (we use the past tense advisedly) … a social worker.


Mayor Satya is taking in-coming from both directions, which bodes well for the effort to recall her from office. 

madame brenda

Madam Brenda

While she accuses “Trump supporters” of engineering the recall effort (no doubt with the assistance of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, various Deplorables, and the Federalist Society) the Far Left is also barking at the mayor’s heels. Madame Brenda Konkel puts out this political hit today:

“I have no confidence in this mayor.  I had serious concerns about Satya running for mayor based on what I knew from serving on the City Council and Progressive Dane Steering Committee – which she abandoned when it suited her political ambitions and went over the the Democratic Party. … Mayor I-Me-My-Mine is in it for one person and one person only – herself.”

Which is pretty amazing considering that Brenda is co-chair of Progressive Dane, which endorsed Satya for mayor and considering that the mayor returned the favor by appointing the Madam to chair the Public Safety Review Committee. That said, Konkel agrees with the mayor’s efforts to “reform” (somehow) the police.

Gangster Disciples

Peaceful BLM protests? The ultra-violent Gangster Disciples are not affiliated with the Recall but are helping it anyway. Graffiti on WI State Historical facade on Capitol Square today

Madison police union is NOT Republican

The police union’s vote of No Confidence has energized the recall movement. 

The recall effort has now been offered a very credible foundation with the announcement of the police union vote. I was hoping and waiting for a seasoned and responsible segment of the city to stand up and offer a reason that people should engage with the recall effort,” former Democratic legislative staffer Greg Humphrey pronounces.  

I was not at all pleased with the partisan nature of those who first assembled the recall.  I have withheld any mention of the recall from this blog for that very reason [but] … no one can be pleased with the lack of leadership from this mayor over the past months. Our city can not afford to think about three more years of having ‘the smartest one in the room’.

Protestor’ mission: wear down police

The almost daily demonstrations and protests are taxing Madison police. Midtown precinct police Captain Jason Freedman:

Captain Jason Freedman“The sheer volume of these incidents and the ongoing resources committed to daily protest activities present significant challenges to investigating these crimes.  COVID protocols and multiple extended shifts and staffing holds (due in large part to the protests) have impacted the capacity of my team and MPD field personnel in general.” 

Captain Freedman notes that burglaries in the Midtown precinct alone (one of five in the city) in June numbered 17 — up from 11 in June 2019. Thefts from autos numbered 50, up[ from 27, and shots fired citywide were 29 last month compared to just 11 in June a year ago.

“It is my belief that we will continue to see a surge in shots fired incidents,” Captain Freedoman writes. “so far July is trending that way.”

Milwaukee should be fun this August

It is no wonder, then, that Madison is one of a hundred (!) police agencies to pull out of policing next month’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee. That city’s anti-cop attitudes (they’ve been hounding Chief Morales like Madison hounded Chief Koval) is partly to blame.

West Allis police sent a letter to Morales with concerns in mid-June after Milwaukee’s Common Council temporarily halted the purchase of those chemicals. “Our concern is that in the event protests turn non-peaceful, such a policy would remove tools from officers that may otherwise be legal and justifiable to utilize in specific situations,” West Allis Deputy Chief Robert Fletcher told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Blaska’s Bottom LineThen again, the party in general has been bullyragging police all along. Witness Jerrold Nadler’s treatment of A.G. Bill Barr at Tuesday’s congressional hearing. (“This is a hearing. Aren’t I the one who supposedly is being heard?”) 

⇒ Must watch TV: Bill Barr’s greatest hits!

Maybe Democrat(ic) convention-goers should call a social worker.

Who you gonna call when they come for you?

    Greg Humphrey withheld mentioning the recall efforts on his blog because he doesn’t like that Jon is a Republican? Jon hasn’t even mentioned Trump or the Republican party in his messaging. From what I’ve seen, this has been strictly about uniting the city for a recall. Other Madison liberals have been able to understand this. Why can’t Greg?

    I’m assuming it would be fine if Jon was a Democrat, but Greg doesn’t mention the recall because the person organizing it doesn’t align with his own political beliefs? Kind of selfish and immature if you ask me.

    I’ve never met Greg Humphrey in person so maybe he’s different than what he presents on his blog, but I’m not terribly impressed with him or his writing, and it has nothing to do with the fact he’s liberal.

    “I was not at all pleased with the partisan nature of those who first assembled the recall.

    Yet the MPD allows protesters to block the entrance of the south district, tie up traffic, riot. They give their officers instructions not to arrest people clearly breaking the law because they don’t want to incite anyone further.

    I feel awful for rank and file, but seems to me that command staff brings some of this upon themselves.

      No riots, violence, or destruction, in Detroit and it took Detroit police chief James Craig only 3:24sec. to explain why. Satya, Wahl, and Evers should be forced to sit and watch the video with their eyes taped open. Madison leadership is disgraceful, an abysmal failure, spineless weaklings devoid of common sense.
      ======================================

      “We don’t retreat here in Detroit. We’re just not gonna do it,” Craig told host Tucker Carlson. “You saw the images … of streets where there was lawlessness, looting, burning. No sign of police officers. We weren’t giving up ground to the radicals. We just didn’t do it.”

      “So when you talk about what’s different here, we have a city that has stood together and oh, by the way, I know there’s a lot of conversation about the mayors in some of these big cities,” Craig said. “Our mayor stands with this police chief, stands with this police department [and] we are not going to tolerate this uptick in violence. That’s key.”

        People deflect blame from Wahl, saying that he has to take his marching orders from the mayor. I question this. Doesn’t that badge supersede local government?

        Besides, thought I read that the mayor said she hasn’t given Wahl or command officers any direction. Not that I believe her, and I’m sure there was a silent understanding, but still.
