Over at the MacIver Institute today, I explain why a Milwaukee union leader went off the deep end and compared holding re-certification elections to Communist China. Boyd McCamish, Executive Director of the AFSCME District Council 48, continued the attacks on Walker last week when news broke the public employee unions would have to have elections […]

John Nichols of The Nation and The Capital Times showed he’s lost all sense of proportion with this ridiculous tweet today: AFSCME leader Marty Beil was arrested at WI Capitol on 50th anniversary of March on Washington. @thenation pic.twitter.com/u9VM9fSw7h — John Nichols (@NicholsUprising) August 28, 2013   Um, John, you might want to check this […]

By the way, if Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett wants to stop the “civil war,” how about he starts with his own city? Left wing protestors clashed with the Milwaukee Police Department after they ignored police orders not to block the entire street during their protest march. The MacIver Institute has the video: [Milwaukee, Wisc…] Violence […]

The Wisconsin Left is making it very clear that for all of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s rhetoric about ending a “civil war,” the leftwing of the Democratic Party has no interest in seeing it end. A coalition of leftwing letterhead organizations will be staging a protest on June 6th at Pere Marquette Park in Milwaukee. […]

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s “PolitiFact” rates some leftwing bloggers on their ridiculous claim that Governor Scott Walker is giving himself a pay raise while freezing the pay of state workers. Of course, the governor’s pay was set by the previous legislature and governor, something those leftwing bloggers should have known. Ironically, PolitiFact’s look into the […]

This week at the MacIver Institute, I defend Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker’s proposal to permanently eliminate 4,000 positions in state government. Of course, it isn’t hard to imagine the state employees’ unions are unhappy with Walker’s proposal. Marty Beil, Executive Director of AFSCME, also criticized Walker’s plan as a gimmick. Then he criticized Walker’s […]

Erik Gunn in Milwaukee Magazine defends the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Pulitzer Prize from the attack of the Crazy Shepherd. I only have one question. Home day-care providers have a union? Really? Print this entry

Candidate for school board Steve Edlund is a siamese twin to controversy. After years of activism in the city and countless open records requests, Edlund is running for office himself. If he wins, there will be a race to see who can hit him with a legitimate open records request first. Because (unlike his opponents) […]

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting two unions have come to terms with Milwaukee County: The first two of Milwaukee County’s eight labor unions have agreed to a set of concessions County Executive Scott Walker and the County Board have been seeking as budget-balancing steps. The trade-off for the union workers: They won’t have to […]

Hey, I’ve seen ugly Ugly is the Detroit Airport. Ugly is the recent behavior by the Left in Pittsburgh. I wouldn’t exactly call what happened on Sunday at Serb Hall “ugly.” How about, not pretty, and really stupid? Citizens for Responsible Government held a public meeting on Sunday at Serb Hall to cheerlead Milwaukee County […]
