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.”

It is to laugh
“The ‘Chaos’ at the border is by design”
“As a presidential candidate in 2020, Biden criticized Trump for “drastically” restricting access to asylum. Now he’s doing the very same thing.”

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.”

A new local political party is gestating
Madison’s ‘hard left’ is not progressive! Is Madison WI ready for another local political party to counter Progressive Dane? The gray labcoats here at the Werekes say yes, not that anyone talking about such a party would want Blaska for … Continue reading
Paul Soglin endorses Ald. Skidmore
A ray of hope for Madison! What a strange trip this has been! Havana Paul is now the voice of reason! We have to think that a majority of Madison wishes they had voted Paul Soglin in 2019, not Satya. This … Continue reading
Dave Cieslewicz goes rogue
“Critical race theory is ‘nonsense posing as wisdom.’” Damn! Dave Cieslewicz is just killing it over at his blog. (No wonder the armadillos are dead.) In today’s installment, he deconstructs the faith-based progressive dogma of Critical Race Theory. Not just … Continue reading
It weren’t Skidmore
Where is your head … set? You might not remember the name “Raymond Donovan,” but you will remember what he said. The news media, virulently anti-Republican even 34 years ago, dragged the obscure cabinet member’s name through the mud as a … Continue reading
Madison alders’ racial hatred penalizes State Street
second of two parts When society is blamed no one is responsible. Which is why Madison’s Progressive Dane-dominated city government has condemned once-vibrant State Street to struggle. A Midwest version of war-torn Beirut. All in the cause (incredibly) of racial … Continue reading
