and irascible head groundskeeper at the Policy Werkes is David Blaska, former has-been, 33-year card-carrying RINO, recovering know-it-all journalist. Holds the record for banishment on the NextDoor social media app. Aging gracelessly at Stately Blaska Manor on the SW side of Madison WI, the Emerald City.

Why Mark Pocan, D-Madison, voted against the debt limit deal
“Forget the debt ceiling. The Biden-McCarthy compromise is a big deal because it is a spending compromise. An important provision of the deal is that if, by the end of the year, the House and Senate haven’t passed 12 appropriations bills (the long-forgotten way budgeting is supposed to work), all discretionary spending would become subject to an automatic 1% cut. This is what is known as a “sequester.” A sequester is to Democrats what garlic is to vampires. …
“The truth today is this: The modern Democratic Party — the party of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and the House Squad — won’t cut or slow spending for any existing federal program, ever. Now, Mr. McCarthy’s negotiators have managed to create a wedge against the left’s massive opposition to spending reforms.”

Deadliest Memorial Day weekend there in eight years.
It is to laugh
“Clarence Thomas, resign or be impeached”
Like Kevin McCarthy’s House of Reps is going to impeach Justice Thomas! (!!!) 😛

Question of the Day
What ‘Deep State’?
Rachael Rollins, the US attorney for Massachusetts, leaked sensitive Justice Department information to a journalist in an effort to influence a local election, lied to investigators and improperly attended a fundraiser with Jill Biden, according to two critical federal reports released Wednesday. (More here.)
How can anyone take them seriously?
Charles C.W. Cooke asks at National Review.
“Rachel Maddow made a career out of spreading lunatic conspiracy theories on MSNBC, as did Chris Hayes and Nicolle Wallace (who is still, today, rejecting all evidence that contradicts her fever dream). Adam Schiff lied relentlessly from his official perch on the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and is now gearing up to run for the Senate.”

Brave talk until the shooting started
Their lies do not excuse ours. As First Lord of the Admiralty in 1915, Winston Churchill had an audacious plan. He would send the world’s most powerful navy up the narrow Strait of Dardanelles to knock the Ottoman Empire out … Continue reading
Some people did some things a year ago￼
No, it’s a breath mint! The Wall Street Journal insists that what occurred a year ago January 6 at the Nation’s Capitol was a riot, “a national disgrace,” but not an insurrection. The Werkes contends that a riot is looting … Continue reading
A good read for insurrection day
This blogge is enjoying a nice uptick in traffic. Time to spend a little capital. If we had one New Year’s wish/fantasy it would be for Ron Johnson, Kevin McCarthy, and Robin Vos to go on Sean Hannity and the … Continue reading
Key kids! Insurrection is constitutional!
It’s fraud when we lose! The indentured servants here at Blaska Stately Manor are sitting out the big protest 09-18-21 in Washington D.C. (Lawn needs mowing.) Saturday is when what’s left of the insurrectionist movement will demand “justice” for the 639 … Continue reading
The Progressive assault on democracy, continued

Trump derangement syndrome works both ways
America’s political pendulum no longer swings, it lurches. If Donald Trump did it, Joe Biden will undo it and back and forth. That’s how politics werkes these days. Trump built the wall, Biden tears it down. Trump backed the police … Continue reading
