Recall Walker – Rape Victim Extremist

“Scott Walker wants to make abortion illegal, even in cases of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the mother.”

Regardless of your opinion about abortion, Scott Walkers view is one of a extremist and opposed by over 80% of Americans across all religious and party lines.

Watch the video of a daughter who was a victim of rape. In Walker’s opinion she must have the baby.

Why? Waukesha WHY?

Here we go. More questions about breaking chain of custody of vote …not Milwaukee, not Dane, not Trempealeau, not Ashland, but…..can you guess? Yep WAUKESHA!

A bag of votes was not properly sealed. In fact it was worse than that!

The clerk said that the bag wasn’t closed properly, so there were openings in the top, through which someone could reach their hand. She also said that the bag was so full that they thought it might tear. So to remedy that situation, they REMOVED THE ORIGINAL SEAL, took the ballots out, put them into a new bag with a new seal, and put that bag back into the original bag with a new seal. WTF???

Breaking News Out of Waukesha County Wisconsin — This being reported from witnesses on the ground in Waukesha

“At around 2:15pm, we were ready to open the bags for Delafield. There were three bags total. Bags 1 & 2 were fine. The numbers all matched up. When we got to bag 3, we found out that the bag # was NOT RECORDED ON THE INSPECTOR’S statement…!

Even as the recount began in Wisconsin’s most suspect county there was a problem. When the very first Waukesha bag of votes examined – can you believe it? – the numbers didn’t match! They matched in Brown, Dane, Fond du Lac, Kenosha, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Outagamie, Portage, – but not WAUKESHA

As canvassers and tabulators compared a numbered seal on a bag with the number recorded for that bag by a town election inspector who prepared the paperwork on election night, the numbers didn’t match.

“What a great way to start,” one tabulator said.

Why? Waukesha WHY?

It should make little difference if you are Republican, Democrat, Independent, or from the Southwest reaches of Zombia – Something is wrong, smelly, amiss, (please consult your thesaurus for more appropriate adjectives).

How many found Waukesha votes, renegade Waukesha lap tops,”special Waukesha software”, secret Waukesha meetings, fuzzy Waukesha math on web sites, misl-labeled Waukesha vote bags, breaks in Waukesha chain of custody must we accept as error before demanding an independent Waukesha investigation?

Demand an independent investigation of the Waukesha vote!

Demand it today! Demand it now! An independent investigation as requested in the Kloppenburg complaint is the only way anyone will come away with any confidence that a fair and democratic vote came out of Waukesha, Waukesha, Waukesha in the Supreme Court election.

Investigate WAUKESHA now!

How nuclear apologists mislead the world over radiation
Posted on April 13, 2011 by Helen Caldicott
<a href=Please read article

I stated publicly that a nuclear event of this size and catastrophic potential could present a medical problem of very large dimensions.

Events have proven this observation to be true despite the nuclear industry’s campaign about the “minimal” health effects of so-called low-level radiation.

Sociopathic Gov. ?

walker flip flop
We have heard you gotta be crazy to get into politics. That might be true. But, since Walker’s surprise announcement that he was out to end collective bargaining rights for most public employees last February, many people, even those from his own party, have been left scratching their heads over this man’s reactions, statements, and demeanor. Many comments have been made regarding his affect and his facial blandness suggesting that he may have “lazy eye” or some other affectation.

Many have wondered at his decision making as a leader, Scott walker seniorin that he seems to be unable to listen to, compromise with, or acknowledge the credibility of those who oppose his views. Imagine what a different path the whole evolution of events might have taken if he had just been able to compromise with unions way back in February and agree not to take away bargaining rights. But no. He really appears to be his own worst enemy and chooses to create controversy in order surround himself in drama in which he is the focus of attention.

So, this is what has led me to looking at this dysfunctional behavior that has polarized Wisconsin, set up a historic recall action, and has a lot of us questioning our own judgments; are we being conspiracy theorists?

It started out as a lark when I discovered the site: Profile of the Sociopath. It was funny, at first, as I began to read the characteristics of a such a personality. As I went down the list, the words seemed to be defining the behavior of the man who is the Governor. It got scary.

This list is below. You read it and tell me if I have become the crazy one: the creator of a conspiracy theory?


This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.

# Glibness and Superficial Charm

# Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

# Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”

# Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

# Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

# Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

# Incapacity for Love

# Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

# Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

# Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

# Irresponsibility/Unreliability
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

# Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

# Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

# Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

Obama finally SPEAKS!

Wow! We finally heard from the POTUS about the horrific actions being perpetrated by over reaching, corporate sponsored Republican Governors and state legislators against democracy.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — President Barack Obama showed support on Wednesday for opponents of bills in Ohio and Wisconsin that restrict unions and public employee bargaining rights.

During an interview with Cleveland television station WKYC, Obama said the bills were an effort to blame public employees for the nation’s economic problems.

“Let’s certainly not blame public employees for a financial crisis that they had nothing to do with. And let’s not use this as an excuse to erode their bargaining rights,” Obama said. “So whether it’s Wisconsin, the state of Ohio, I strongly disapprove.”

Yes. We appreciate your comments of concern for the work and struggle we have been engaging in for the past months. It has been a bit surprising to most of us that this is being defined as “the first definitive statement” you have made regarding the vilification of public employees and the attack on peoples’ rights to collective bargaining. Originally, we were told that you were silent since it would pit you against a state governor and, thereby, distort the issues by taking them to a national conversation. At any rate, the “definitive” stance was taken today. Good for you! Most likely it will become a central part of your stump speech in the upcoming presidential election.

While we have your attention, would it be possible to get over to Attorney General Holder’s office and ask him to look into the recent State Supreme Court election here in Wisconsin?
We have a problem. We need answers about the anomalies, and irregularities that may have stolen the election from candidate Kloppenburg. Even though this is another “state problem” the very same process for counting the vote in the recent election, will be in place when the vote is counted for president in 2012, and it s messy. Many Wisconsinites lack confidence in the vote counting system, and for good reason.

Attorney General Van Hollen

Even though a recount is in process as I write this, it is being authorized and ruled by the the Attorney General of the State and the Government Accountability Board. They both have been implicated as actors of benefit from the suspicious election vote totals and administration. How are we to trust the decision beginning made by officials and Boards that are investigating themselves? Attorney General Van Hollen is in office due the a vote counted in Waukesha County, which displayed a different total vote on there web site, then the vote of the two candidates when added together. The GAB issued the County Clerk of Waukesha, the notorious Kathy Nickolaus, some “special” soft ware that was only supplied to her and no other County Clerk in the state. She kept the vote count that swung the election, with 7,000 votes for candidate Prosser on her personal lap top computer. What is going on? Why is it outrageous for people to expect a independent investigation? Why has Mr. Holder not taken action when he was requested to look into the election weeks ago my Rep. Tammy Baldwin? How can the people of Wisconsin expect a fair or just investigation of irregularities by people and parties that are suspect in the process?

Mr. President, now that we have found your ear, could you help us elect you as President again in 2012 by ordering a Investigation by the Attorney General?

We Demand an INDEPENDENT Investigation

So, now we hear that Kathy Nickolaus had a “special” program for her “private” lap top. That’s not all. The “special” program was created for her by the Government Accountability Board. The same board that is in complete control of the recount? Really?

Please read the article from the Milwaukee New Buzz
Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus was using a software program created especially for her by the state Government Accountability Board when she made the huge error in compiling results for the State Supreme Court race between incumbent David Prosser and challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg.

The special program was revealed in an email sent to other county clerks and released by the Kloppenburg campaign to buttress her claim that an independent investigation of Nickolaus’ office is needed.

Nickolaus was at the center of the huge vote-reporting error that omitted the entire City of Brookfield from county totals reported to the media. Made public two days after the April 5 election, the revelation altered the results of the State Supreme Court race in Justice David’s Prosser’s favor. The GAB, which oversees elections in the state, is currently investigating the mix-up and announced last week it would issue a final report within 60 days. Kloppenburg’s campaign asked for a special investigator, arguing the GAB works too closely with county clerks to be impartial. The GAB denied the request.

Kathy Nickolaus

The email, by Rusk County Clerk Denise Wetzel and addressed to other county clerks in Wisconsin, including Nickolaus, was sent on April 8, the day after Nickolaus revealed the vote-reporting error in a press conference.

It reads, “Please note that the program Kathy uses IS NOT the new canvass reporting program that is in the (Statewide Voter Registration System) that we all have been using as of late. It is a completely different program that was created by GAB for Kathy to accumulate her votes prior to uploading them into the program that the rest of us use.”

The Wetzel email, filed with the campaign’s request for an outside investigator, was “meant to indicate the GAB appropriately works closely with county clerks on a number of projects, and that close relationship makes it harder for the GAB to do a full and independent investigation,” says Kloppenburg campaign manager Melissa Mulliken.

This brings up a few questions?

WHY was Kathy Nickolaus given a “special” program for the vote count?

Why was it “created” by the GAB?

Why is the agency who authorized such a suspicious and unusual software creation allowed to be in full authority of the investigation. Why is the GAB being allowed to investigate its own highly unusual and suspicious acts?

We demand a full INDEPENDENT investigation. NOW.

Walker Whines "hard to get things done."

How can this man be so utterly out of touch with his crumbling agenda, and mutinous subjects?

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is criticizing the wave of recalls in his state, which are taking place in the wake of the controversial passage of his anti-public employee union legislation.

Wisconsin Radio Network reported on Friday:

Walker says in the past lawmakers have faced recall elections after instances of misconduct in office and not over a single vote.

“At some point if you have a recall after every vote, you could have those continuously, one-after-another-after-another and it makes it very hard in a Republic for things to get done.”
Please read article

I mean this man is out of touch. He really is stuck in some alter reality. He obviously does not get it.

Yes in the past lawmakers have been recalled, but do you even begin to understand that what is happening here is historic. The recall of more than 2 sitting legislators in one cycle would have been enough to break records, but there are now, count them, 8 Senators facing recall. That is an exponentially negative reaction to your over reaching, uncompromising, law breaking antics in your short term as Governor. Don’t you get it? This is about YOU. YOU are next!

Mr Holder we need answers -2

Yes. This is the second post bearing the title “Mr. Holder We Need Answers”. The first was posted when the anomalies of the Supreme Court election first began to surface.Read first Mr. Holder post.

Are You Listening?
The revelations from Waukesha regarding miscounts, suspect turnout percentages, computer malfunctions, and human error keep morphing and multiplying on a daily basis. It appears these topsy turvy vote counting and reporting antics go back 10 years!

Since so many incongruities have surfaced and so many questions are left unanswered, the Waukesha vote count has gone above and beyond being about the outcome of the State Supreme Court race, but has become the focus for the legitimacy of the electoral process itself! Vote tampering is little more than non-violent terrorism and more treacherous than any wiki leak dump. Yet, as much effort, time, and money that is invested in getting out the vote, when the legitimacy of the count is questioned, the inquiry is met with “ah well these sorta things happen” attitude from State and Federal Officials.

From Businessweek.com

The recount comes while the state’s top court addresses two separate filings asking it to overturn a temporary injunction and dismiss a lawsuit challenging the legality of Republican Governor Scott Walker’s legislation limiting public employees’ ability to engage in collective bargaining.

While the Supreme Court contest is nonpartisan, Prosser previously served a Republican speaker of Wisconsin’s lower legislative house, the state Assembly.

A big surprise yesturday

Nearly everyone was caught by surprise with announcement many of the machine counted ballots could not be verified without the possibility of erasing the actual vote.
Allowing counties to re-tabulate votes using the erasable memory cartridges “will allow for a timely and accurate recount that will give effect to the will of the electors,” according to the complaint filed by the office of State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.

Lisa Weiner, the Milwaukee County Elections Board administrator, said it would take at least a week to conduct a recount using the machines and twice as long for a hand count. The cost of a mechanical recount would exceed $500,000, she said. The candidates have until the end of today to request a hand count, she said.

This lead to an even bigger surprise today.

The case is In the Matter of the Recount of Votes for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, 11cv1863, Dane County, Wisconsin Circuit Court (Madison).
Wisconsin GAB Sues to Avoid Hand Recount and to Erase Election Data
Read the Businessweek.com article

The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board asked a judge to allow the use of electronic voting memory cartridges to speed the recount in a contested Supreme Court election, even if that use might erase the voting data.

Allowing counties to re-tabulate votes using the erasable memory cartridges “will allow for timely and accurate recount that will give effect to the will of the electors,” according to the complaint filed by the office of State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.

Here is where the waters begin to get muddy and threatens to clog any attempt to count the vote of the Supreme Court contest within the current three branches of the Wisconsin Government.

Obviously the Governor cannot be trusted to be objective, and we have some reason to doubt he will be honest after denying an alleged meeting with Posser and himself on the day after the contested election as stated in the Kloppenburg complaint.

If the count procedures are contested and go to the Supreme Court there we find Prosser himself as a sitting Supreme Court Judge. Will he recluse himslef? If not, can any judgment be accepted as just?

And that ain’t all. The irregularities coming out Waukesha showed an inaccuracy in the 2006 Attorney General post that would cost Van Hollen his office. This development prompted an action by Defending Wisconsin PAC.

Madison Wisconsin — Defending Wisconsin PAC has formally asked for the resignation of Wisconsin’s Attorney General as the vote tally in Waukesha comes under question.

Dear Attorney General JB Van Hollen,

It has recently come to my attention that there is need for concern over your election in 2006. As you may recall you were running against Kathleen Falk, a Democrat and County Executive of Dane County. On the surface the results of that race looked as though you were the winner by a narrow margin of only 8,859 votes. In this election, Waukesha County had voted heavily for you.

Of course, Van Hollen is the power behind the suite for the denial of a hand count vote. How can we not question his motives? Is he really concerned by the cost of such a count or is he protecting his own position and the vote count that got him in office.

So, as it sits, all branches of the State Govenment are involved with notable prejudices on the how the vote count should be handled.

So, Mr. Holder, we have a problem. Many of the people of Wisconsin have lost confidence in the electoral process in their state, and we don’t have much time to make it right. Even as I write this eight State Senators are facing a recall election this Summer. We need answers. We need them now. We need you to step in and untangle this process and help conduct a hand count of the Supreme Court Election vote and an investigation to the allegations in Klopenburg’s complaint. Nothing short of this action will restore confidence the democratic process.

Walker/Ryan Proposal a Bush rerun

Our dear Governor published an article in the New York Time Op Ed Section:

Our Obsolete Approach to Medicaid
By SCOTT WALKER
Published: April 21, 2011

WHAT does Medicaid have in common with “I Dream of Jeannie,” “Lost in Space” and “Get Smart”? They all made their debut in 1965. Although we enjoy watching reruns of these classics, the television networks have updated their programming. The federal government should do the same.

An alternative approach is to offer block grants for Medicaid, as my fellow Wisconsinite, Representative Paul D. Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, has urged. Why now support a block grant for Medicaid when similar proposals have failed?

That is a good question indeed.

Read the Walker op ed

Walker, the man who has called unions “archaic”, now depicts the Medicare Program as a mere puff of smoke that escaped from a genie urn. In fact, the plan he points to as a fresh new vision of Rep. Ryan, is the bogus idea of smoke and mirrors from the past. But don’t you remember when President Bush was saying in an old rerun from 2003:

“Our goal is a system in which all Americans have got a good insurance policy, in which all Americans can choose their own doctor, in which seniors and low-income citizens receive the help they need. … Our Medicare system is a binding commitment of a caring society. We must renew that commitment by providing the seniors of today and tomorrow with preventive care and the new medicines that are transforming health care in our country.” — George W. Bush, Medicare address, March 4, 2003

Bush had no shame, and now Walker and Ryan are regurgitating the same old smoke and touting it as something new and vibrant when it is the Ryan plan that is the rerun of the 2003 shamless attack on the seniors of our country. Hey Governor, Medicare is not the rerun here. The “Get Smart” show should be required viewing for Walker Ryan types who are merely spinning the mirrors on a failed experiment.

The Bush, Ryan, Walker program does none of the things they say, yesterday or today. What it does, simply, is to make dramatic cuts in the benefits for both the poor and the elderly. Back in 2003, President Bush and the GOP were just proposing to “block grant” Medicaid and shift some Medicare recipients to private plans. Now they want to shift all people on Medicare to private plans and basically end the Medicare program.

So here we are right back to where we were eight years ago. In the end back then state governors, facing huge budget problems, realized that the Medicaid cuts were just that – cuts – and a bad deal for the states, regardless of party. Those cuts didn’t happen. We did end up encouraging Medicare recipients to go into private Medicare plans though. How did that turn out? Well, taxpayers ended up paying 14% more to private health plans for delivering exactly the same benefits as the traditional Medicare program.

It is the dated Bush/Ryan plan that is “Lost in Space” while cutting the huge subsidy to the insurance industry is one big way the Affordable Care Act saves money and starts to bring Medicare costs under control.

So, if the GOP’s grand plans didn’t work back then, why should they now? Check out the summary of the 2003 GOP proposals in the American Prospect.

Please read article from Policy Watch

Under the current Medicaid program, the federal government matches, on a sliding scale, the money that states put up. The state is required to cover some beneficiaries and services, although others are “optional.” But “optional” services include many essential and life-saving treatments. And “optional” beneficiaries are seldom able to pay for private insurance. Bush’s plan, in effect, would turn Medicaid into a block grant, capping the federal contribution. Because states are already hard-pressed to keep up with Medicaid costs, services to the poor will simply dwindle.As Leighton Ku, a health-policy analyst at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, notes, if under the current plan “you wanted to save that much money, you would have to specify which cuts to make, how to make the cuts. But it’s much easier to cut the block grant because it’s invisible; someone else has to make the decisions.”

For both Medicare and Medicaid, the budgetary effects would become larger over time because federal payments would tend to grow more slowly under the proposal than projected costs per enrollee under current law. Although the level of expected federal spending and the uncertainty surrounding that spending would decline, enrollees’ spending for health care and the uncertainty surrounding that spending would increase.

Medicaid Block Grant Would Produce Disparate and Inequitable Results Across States

Read full report from Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Some states that fear being disadvantaged by the formulas for determining the initial annual block grant amounts and the subsequent annual increases in block grant levels might attempt to seek modifications to the block grant design to mitigate these adverse effects. Any changes that helped some states, however, would inevitably harm others, and those states would resist such changes. This illustrates the zero-sum nature of a Medicaid block grant: capping overall federal funding at a level designed to fall further and further below the total amount of federal funding that states would receive under current law would force states to compete for shares of an increasingly inadequate pool of federal resources.

Preliminary Analysis of the Rivlin-Ryan Health Care Proposal

Quote from CBO analysis of the Rivlin/Ryan Medicare voucher and Medicaid block grant proposals.</strong
(Analysis transmitted by letter from Douglas Elmendorf, Director of the CBO, to Rep. Paul Ryan)
Congressional Budget Office
November 17, 2010

Similarly, reducing federal payments for Medicaid relative to currently projected amounts would probably require states to provide less extensive coverage, or to pay a larger share of the program’s total costs, than would be the case under current law.

For both Medicare and Medicaid, the budgetary effects would become larger over time because federal payments would tend to grow more slowly under the proposal than projected costs per enrollee under current law. Although the level of expected federal spending and the uncertainty surrounding that spending would decline, enrollees’ spending for health care and the uncertainty surrounding that spending would increase.
