The first post under the heading “Free Wisconsin” was headlined “Sleeping Giant Awakes in Wisconsin”. It really reflects my personal waking, as from a cold sweat, trembling nightmare, except that no shaking of the head or pinching of myself could make it go away. It was real.
Thus began a daily posting of the barrage of assaults on the rules, procedures, and dignity of the government of Wisconsin in the long year of GOP control under Scott Walker. My posts are often accompanied with a photo-shop picture or two, so I picked a picture with a caption to trace the evolution of events in Wisconsin over the first six months of the past year.

Rally in Richland Center
A little piece of American SOLIDARITY
March 10th, 2011 | Author: Dennis Kern
There was a demonstration in front of the Court House in Richland County, Wisconsin, America at 9:00 a.m. CST on March 10, 2010.
I left confident of success and damn proud of Wisconsin!

The First GOP Senator triggered for recall

La Crosse area Democrats say they will file petitions today with enough signatures to trigger a recall election of Sen. Dan Kapanke, one of eight Senate Republicans targeted…

Recall organizer Pat Scheller said volunteers have gathered more than the 15,588 signatures needed and that they plan to take them to Madison after a noon rally today at La Crosse City Hall.
It is expected to be the first completed of 19 active recall efforts registered between Feb. 24 and March 2 against 16 senators.

Why is it important to know who the Koch Bros are? Ask Bernie Sanders the Senator from Vermont who stood on the floor of the Senate for most of a whole day to deliver a good, old fashioned filibuster, which has become known as “The Amazing Speech”, to stop the action that would extend tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.
Who are the Koch Bros? Why should I care?
Summer of recall campaigns and elections
|What a season of awakening and action with the result: a record breaking, recall of six (to date) Wisconsin GOP Senators facing a recall election in July!||
Summer of UNREST
May 1st, 2011 | Author: Dennis Kern
This is monumental! This is what Democracy looks like!
Count them Darling, Kapanke, Olson, Hopper, Cowles, Harsdorf! All stood with Walker and when Spring came they found the ice melting beneath their feet. Final hour recall drives are still going on for the remaining two of the now infamous GOP 8!
The “found” votes
Holy!- STEALING WISCONSIN- Sexy!
We all suspect that the real problem in the Wisconsin recount is not likely to turn up in the recount of votes because it is quite possible that the votes being counted are already flipped! Why are we not getting to the real suspect issues: Kathy Nickolaus’ criminal history, “special software” given to her alone by the GAB (the board responsible for administrating the state-wide recount), the storage vote counting software on her private computer, the proven vulnerability of the Sequoia (Waukesha) voting system to hacking and manipulation?

Fraud 9 – Duct Tape (Really!)
May 21st, 2011 | Author: Dennis Kern
They make it sound the Kloppenburg found a rip in a single ballot bag and are claiming fruad. It wasn’t one bag. It was many bags. Not only did they appear slit, torn, and lapping open the numbering would be an embarrassment to a third grader! To top it off the slit bags were repaired with duct tape!

Prosser and Activist Judges

Justice Shirley Abrahamson accuses the majority of 4 of giving case ‘short shrift’
In hastily reaching judgment, Justice Patience D. Roggensack, Justice Annette K. Ziegler, and Justice Michael J. Gableman author an order, joined by Justice David T. Prosser, lacking a reasoned, transparent analysis and incorporating numerous errors of law and fact. This kind of order seems to open the court unnecessarily to the charge that the majority has reached a pre-determined conclusion not based on the facts and the law, which undermines the majority’s ultimate decision.

Waukesha Fraud – Deep Throat Speaks
June 17th, 2011 | Author: Dennis Kern
An observer of the Waukesha County recount noticed such a small, innocent piece of paper that was spit out of a voting machine in Pewaukee. It was a poll tape from a voting machine on which is recorded your vote. But what caught her eye was the date at the top of the tape: 03-30-2011 or March 30. That was six days before the Supreme Court election of April 5!
The covert workings of the American Legislative Exchange Council is exposed
ALEC – Anti Labor Elderly Children
July 15th, 2011 | Author: Dennis Kern
How does this activity differ from legislators meeting in party caucus, or designing a party platform for legislative action?
– The workings of ALEC are secret. In fact, the existence of the “council” was all but unknown until the past few months even though its influence on Wisconsin legislation can be traced back to the Thompson Administration.
– The workings of ALEC have nothing to do with “we the people” or promoting the general welfare, but focus firmly on the “pursuit of happiness” for the already most privileged and wealthy top 1% of the population.
The Walker Policies never seemed a match for the historical character of Wisconsin.

Um, Dems better look into what is going on in district 8! MSNBC “With 62% of the vote in the dem had a 52/48 advantage, then, with 63% in the dem had a 51/49 advantage, THEN with a 64% of the votes in the republican had a 51/49 advantage. THAT CANNOT BE! A 1% swing cannot suddenly give the republican 3% points IF previously a 1% swing took away only ONE % point from the democratic challenger. THIS is the “smoking gun” – that should be investigated by the Dems TODAY. It’s PROOF Nicholas sat on democratic votes. Someone needs to get a copy of the MSNBC tape and look at what i was looking at. Again, if a 1% swing at 10pm means 1,000 votes, then, 1% swing at 11pm CANNOT mean 4,000 votes!!!”

Hurricane Kathy Rips Wisconsin
August 25th, 2011 | Author: Dennis Kern
A “KAT 4? Hurricane made landfall in the City of Brookfield in Waukesha County in April, 2011 leaving 14,000 residents stripped of their votes.
The massive storm caught the residents of Wisconsin completely unaware. Few warnings were posted by the Government Accountability Bureau regarding the severity of the storm that left thousands of Wisconsin Residents stripped of their freedoms and at the mercy of the devastating power of special interest groups such as Americans for Prosperity and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) – the shadowy Koch Brothers, big tobacco, insurance companies, and a drug industry consortium.
