Rush Limbaugh Names And Shames Perps In Wisconsin John Doe Scandal (Audio)

download (6)

For the second day in a row, an incensed Rush Limbaugh spent a significant portion of his show covering National Review’s bombshell report by David French detailing the state sponsored home invasions (or swattings as Patterico  called them) that were perpetrated against private citizens by a hyper political District Attorney, a rubber-stamping judge and an all too compliant police force in Wisconsin in the Fall of *2013.

As Rush noted, “truly outrageous things”  went on in the state of Wisconsin that was happening “at the same time as — and as part of — the effort to destroy Scott Walker.”

An effort was made “to destroy anybody and everybody who supported him and vote for him or donated money to him.”

“This effort was conducted by law enforcement!” Rush exclaimed.

The innocent in Wisconsin were guilty because they were conservative. The left in Wisconsin was losing everything. They were losing their union domination and control. Scott Walker was decimating all the systems they had put in place.

They literally lashed out in panic, anger, and you name it to punish people who had voted for Walker, who had raised money for him, who they thought had voted for him. It was the kind of thing that Vladimir Putin does and we all laugh about because that’s what we expect in a tyrannical dictatorship like the Soviet Union or Russia. We find out that it can happen here and has happened here, and there was no mechanism to stop it. The prosecutor’s name is Chisholm, John Chisholm, and I hope his name is never forgotten. .


The judge, without whom this case could not have happened, is Barbara Kluka, K-l-u-k-a, and I’ll tell you what she did.


She came along in the second John Doe investigation, and she approved every petition, every subpoena, every search warrant in the whole case in less than one day’s work. She enabled law enforcement to raid these innocent citizens’ homes. She’s since recused herself from this, but not before she enabled all of this to happen in the second phase of the John Doe 2 case here.

In the second John Doe case, the DA, John Chisholm, had no real evidence of wrongdoing by anybody. It didn’t stop him. Conservative groups were active in issue advocacy, which is protected by the First Amendment. It didn’t violate any campaign finance laws. Issue advocacy is politics 101. These people were targeted because they’re conservatives and liberals. As I say, what happened here in not only the treatment Scott Walker got, but everybody else, this is liberalism run amok without any checks, without any opposition, without anybody pushing back, and in its own way California is the same example.

Despite the fact that there were no violations of the law in any away, the DA, Chisholm, convinced “prosecutors in four other counties to launch their own John Does, with Judge Kluka overseeing all of them. Empowered by a rubber-stamp judge, partisan investigators ran amok. They subpoenaed and obtained (without the conservative targets’ knowledge) massive amounts of electronic data, including virtually all the targets’ personal e-mails and other electronic messages from outside e-mail vendors and communications companies. The investigations exploded into the open with a coordinated series of raids on October 3, 2013. These were home invasions,” including the ones that I have detailed previously in this half hour.

This entire affair does indeed rise to the level of scandal – and there are state officials  –  Chisholm and Kluka for starters – who should be disbarred and prosecuted for what they did.

(As a conservative, I am for naming and shaming evildoers. But not harassing or threatening them. That is the left’s purview. I hope the attention that this story has garnered on the right does not lead to anything like what conservatives – including Scott Walker himself – suffered at the hands of these left-wing totalitarian freaks. If they do not face justice in this world – they will face it in the next.)

Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees

It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….
Obama’s FBI Director James Comey!

 The Noisy Room : My nomination for WOTW is FBI Director James Comey for smearing one of
America’s remaining allies, Poland, over the Holocaust. Comey said in an
article penned earlier this week for the Washington Post: “In their
minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and
Hungary, and so many, many other places didn’t do something evil. They
convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to
do.” Poland says the passage wrongly implied it was complicit in the
Nazi genocide of European Jews.

Poland has summoned the United States’ ambassador in Warsaw over the
article and is demanding a public apology.

From Yahoo! News:

Poland’s ambassador to the United States said in a statement the
remarks were “unacceptable”, adding that he had sent a letter to
Comey “protesting the falsification of history, especially …
accusing Poles of perpetuating crimes which not only they did not
commit, but which they themselves were victims of.”

Shortly after Poland’s announcement, U.S. Ambassador in Warsaw
Stephen Mull told reporters he would attend a meeting at the foreign
ministry on Sunday afternoon.

“Suggestions that Poland, or any other country apart from the Nazi
Germany was responsible for the Holocaust are wrong, harmful and
offensive,” he added, speaking in Polish.

“I think that Comey’s wider message was that there were many people
in the world that aided the Nazi criminals, or there were people who
did not respond sufficiently, … also in the United States.”

Fail. I believe the smear was intentional because Poland is insisting on
a missile shield for defense and has criticized the US for lack of
effort in supporting the Ukraine and NATO. Comey weasely and slyly
smeared Poland as being just as bad, just as murderous, just as evil as
the Nazis to undermine them on the world stage. This is the regard Obama
holds our allies in. For dissing another ally that will soon join our
other ex-allies, Comey should get a 24k gold weasel with his face
imprinted on it. Same diff.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey!!

 The Independent Sentinel : General Dempsey is my hands-down weasel of the week. Weasel isn’t a strong enough word. He has decided to politicize his role and the Pentagon. To cover for Barack Obama, he described the imminent fall of Ramadi as not a real issue after so many military lost their lives or were wounded in Ramadi during the surge. Ramadi was the pivotal battle of the surge.

His comments this week are simply dishonest.

“The city itself, it’s not symbolic in any way. It’s not been declared, ya know, part of the caliphate on the one hand or central to Iraq. And the issue here is not brick and mortar. It’s about defeating ISIL, so, as I said, uh, oh, I’d much rather Ramadi not fall, but it won’t be the end of a campaign should it fall. We gotta get it back.”
Mikey Weinstein, Obama’s Personal Czar To Eradicate Christianity In The Military

 JoshuaPundit : A lot of people have never heard of Michael ‘Mikey’ Weinstein. But he’s an influential point man in one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s most ambitious projects.

Whether it’s trying to force  combat troops to give up their VA benefits, using their coffins as a campaign  photo-op or illegally suppressing their votes, President Obama has shown from day one that he pretty much despises the American military, especially their  values. Since most Americans do honor our military, the president’s solution is to change the nature of those whom serve to the degree possible. One way is to force as many men as possible out of the service, especially officers, and replace them with people more likely to see things this president’s way, especially when it comes to politics. A second front, if you will, is to change the military’s culture so that any semblance of Judeo-Christian expression and values are eliminated.

And that’s where a militant atheist like Mikey comes in. You see, Mikey and his ‘Military Religious Freedom Foundation’ are raking in lots of taxpayers dollars to wage war on Christianity in the military as official Pentagon consultants.

And Mikey Weinstein hates Christians (whom he sees as Tea Party right wingers) and Christianity with a special hatred, as well as religious Jews. He actually blamed Christians for the Fort Hood terrorist attack, saying proselytizing by “fundamentalist Christians”created a hostile environment that caused jihadist Major Nidal Hasan to go on his rampage,

As a result, both retention and enlistments are way down among believing Christians, who have always been disproportionally represented among those who volunteer for military service. And because Weinstein has particularly targeted chaplains, whom he wants out of uniform and denied all military rank and benefits,  recruiting Christian chaplains whom feel they can no longer practice their faith  has become extraordinarily difficult.

What this portends for the future of America’s military is not pleasant to contemplate.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

Hillary’s Mmm-Hmm Tour (Video)

Technically – it’s called a listening tour – but you say a lot of “mmm-hmms” when you’re listening, right?

Via White House Dossier, here’s another Washington Free Beacon Supercut – 88 Times Hillary Clinton Said ‘Mmm Hmm’ in New Hampshire:

Nobody can fake sincerity like a Clinton, as they say – usually about the other Clinton, though. Hillary’s not really that good at faking it.
