A Tale of Two Wisconsinites

Two Wisconsin men recently featured in the news, chose two very different paths to become famous…

Since both men are young and single – why don’t I write about them like they’re contestants on the Dating Game? Wouldn’t that be fun?

How about that, ladies?

Alrighty, then.

Bachelor #1 is 28 year old hunka hunka burnin’ love Jordan Matson


Jordan is a US Army vet who is currently residing in Syria where he has joined forces with the Kurds to fight ISIS. The devout Christian can often be seen in a  “Rambo-style” bandana and a tactical vest with the words “Christ is Lord” written on the fabric.

Untitled-2Wow, Bachelor #1, that’s pretty wild! What made you decide to go to Syria and fight ISIS?


jm“I decided that if my government wasn’t going to do anything to help this country, especially Kurdish people who stood by us for 10 years and helped us out while we were in this country, then I was going to do something.”

Untitled-2How long have you been there?


jmSince last September.




Wow, I guess you’re in it for the long haul, then, huh?



“I’m not going back until the fight is finished and [the Islamic State] is crippled.jm… How many people were sold into slavery or killed just for being part of a different ethnic group or religion? That’s something I am willing to die to defend.”


Hmmm…something to definitely think about…

And here’s bachelor #2: Joshua Van Haften, 34:


Joshua Van Haften, 34, of Dane County, Wisconsin, is a socially conscious pro-union activist who once signed his name to an anti-Scott Walker petition.

Van Haften is also a convicted child sex offender, who was recently arrested for trying to join ISIS – the group Bachelor #1 is fighting.

Untitled-2Wait… you traveled overseas for the purpose of joining and attempting to provide material support to ISIS?”






Untitled-2How long do you think you’ll be in prison?

joshA conviction in my case carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in federal prison. But I’m pretty sure President Barack Hussein Obama will pardon me before he leaves office.


Untitled-2Do you support a woman’s right to choose?


joshUh, yes ma’am I sure do. And I’ve also worked tirelessly to thwart the Koch brothers’ favorite Tea Party extremist, the union-busting Scott Walker.


Untitled-2When’s the last time you washed your hair?


joshTo be honest, I don’t know. It’s been awhile, ma’am.

Untitled-2Still Thinking…

Oh, I know! If you guys were bakers and a gay couple wanted you to bake them a wedding cake for their gay wedding….

Deal or No Deal?: Iranian Supreme Leader Says No Deal With “Devilish” US

Although the White House has been touting a nuclear framework “deal” with Iran, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the other sides of the talks – the Iranians and the Europeans — do not share their enthusiasm. 

Yesterday, an Iranian Defense Minister accused the Obama administration of lying because key elements in the White House Fact sheet were not agreed upon.

Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan categorically rejected as a “lie” a Guardian report alleging that Tehran has granted access to its military facilities under the recent framework agreement with the world powers.

“No such agreement has been made; principally speaking, visit to military centers is among our redlines and no such visit will be accepted,” Gen. Dehqan stressed on Wednesday, rejecting “the report by foreign media outlets, such as the Guardian” as “untruthful allegations”…

Today, Iranian “Supreme Leader” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said he neither backed nor rejected the deal, but “demanded all sanctions be lifted immediately once a final agreement was concluded.”

He added in a televised speech that the details of the accord would be decisive, and the publication of a US fact sheet showing terms that were at variance with the Iranian view of the agreement showed “devilish” US intentions…

“The White House put out a statement just a few hours after our negotiators finished their talks…this statement, which they called a ‘fact sheet’, was wrong on most of the issues.”

The official explanation does little to quell suspicions that the White House is deliberately misrepresenting what Iran promised in order to make the deal more palatable to Americans. In fact, it seems to confirm those suspicions.

American officials acknowledge that they did not inform the Iranians in advance of all the “parameters” the United States would make public in an effort to lock in progress made so far, as well as to strengthen the White House’s case against any move by members of Congress to impose more sanctions against Iran.

“We talked to them and told them that we would have to say some things,” said a senior administration official who could not be identified under the protocol for briefing reporters. “We didn’t show them the paper. We didn’t show them the whole list.”

The official acknowledged that it was “understood that we had different narratives, but we wouldn’t contradict each other.”

Well, it turns out that the Obama Regime’s “narrative” was so outside the perimeters of what was agreed upon, the Iranians couldn’t play along. And “Iran’s Supreme Leader”, Ayatollah Khamenei doesn’t appreciate being Grubered by these American shysters.

And via Legal Insurrection,  Khamenei, took to Twitter to call the Obama administration a bunch of untrustworthy liars.”

So once again – we’re confronted with the spectacle of an Alinsky-trained, ends justify the means, Community Organizing president engaging in what we have taken to calling “Gruberism” –  that is – lying one’s ass off to further an agenda. Only this time it’s on an international stage – for everyone in the world to see.

And Americans are forced into the awkward position of having to agree with the mad Mullahs – “Yeah, the devilish Obama administration is lying again. You really can’t trust them.”

Somebody wake me up when this nightmare is over.

Our Weasel Of The Week

Once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all disgusting,but the votes are in and we have our winner …the envelope please…

Male Bashing Leftist Cadre and U of VA President Teresa Sullivan!!

  Don Surber : This Mustela academia arbitrarily suspended every fraternity and sorority at the University based solely on a music magazine’s ludicrous, unsourced story about a gang  rape. She did so without a hearing or even any modicum of a nod to jurisprudence, even though her husband is listed as a “legal scholar” by Wikipedia. She did so despite Duke University’s witch hunt against its lacrosse team in 2006. But Teresa Sullivan has a lengthy career in the Mustela family, beginning as a student at the University of Michigan when she sucked up to its then-president, Clifton R. Wharton, Jr., as an intern. She climbed the ladder of college presidenting basically because she is a woman at a time when universities need women presidents because, hey, 60% of their students are. In 2012, the University of Virginia board tried to dump her, but then-Governor Bob McDonnell threatened to dump all the board members. He is now in prison for political corruption. Jann Wenner — our Mustela trustfund-hippietis  — deserves an honorable mention, of course, but give her the Golden Weasel.

Yes,male bashing is indeed in season, with special thanks to The Federal Department of education, Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department, who pressured colleges across the nation to restrict a male student’s right to due process by using ‘preponderance of the evidence’ as the new, lower standard of proof instead of the higher ‘clear and convincing’ standard.Ans seeing whom runs academia these days, getting them to declare open season on college age males wasn’t a struggle at all.

So when Rolling Stone began shopping for a made to order story to push their political agenda, the University of Virginia, with a president who was a veteran of the feminist culture wars was perfect. Rolling Stone found Jackie Coakley there, a long time radical feminist wannabe activist with her story of a fake gang rape and the next thing you know, the Leftist megaphone trumpeted it across America. Ms. Sullivan shut down all fraternity, innocent male students were publicly shamed and maligned, and their fraternity house was vandalized, all wile Ms. Sullivan preened and posed for the press.

After the bogus narrative collapsed and went down in flames, Ms. Sullivan never once apologized to the fraternity or students involved, nor was there any disciplinary action against Jackie Coakly. In fact, many of the usual suspects are going out of their way to call the fake UVA gang rape story ‘fake but accurate’ ala’ Dan Rather, and to portray Jackie Coakley as the ultimate victim of this sordid affair.

So Ms. Sullivan, please step up and get your richly deserved Weasel. The real payoff, of course will be in about a decade. Most savvy young men these days know better than to date a young woman who works with them or goes to the same college they do…the risks of being falsely labeled guilty of rape or sexual assault are simply too great. So they’ll look elsewhere, and two places where many young women used to meet suitable mates are largely disappearing. Scores of women between their late twenties and thirties who simply couldn’t find a man worth marrying will face single lives of loneliness and depression because because of people like you and your agenda….now that’s Weaselness.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
