I spent some time talking with Scott Walker last night. I have always been thankful for the job he did. I thanked him for his support of heritage activities, the second amendment and numerous other things, and he spit out an impressive collection of facts regarding Marquette and others involved in the rich history of the fur trade in the early exploration and settlement of our state. We had a great conversation. In addition to the work he is doing for the upcoming elections, he is becoming involved in the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) organization, founded by William F. Buckley. That's another much-needed cause in snowflake land.
I have also spent quite a bit of time talking with Tony Kurtz (NOT
Evers) lately, our representative for Assembly District 50. This was a fundraiser for Tony Kurtz at the Reedsburg Country Club. He is a fine person and is one of the most accessible and responsive representatives around. If the Republican party can flip six seats in the state senate and assembly, they will have a super majority and can flatten any attempt by Evers to squash Second Amendment rights.
I failed to catch this last year, but Sauk County, Wisconsin was named in a national list of the top ten counties in the country that will determine the outcome of the 2020 election, and that distinction has recently become a big focus in the press as the election gets nearer. The Republican organizers in this area have had recent requests for interviews from CNN, The Hill, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and others.
Articles on this appear in several publications, but here’s one: https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/459832-the-10-counties-that-will-decide-the-2020-election
That has also led to the arrival (by bus) of a “Black Lives Matter” group attempting to stir the pot in various locations. Big time fun. We need people who brag about being trained Marxists here to enlighten us. They showed up at the little Republican campaign building in the parking lot of Viking Liquor in Reedsburg the other day and when no one engaged with them, they left (they got on their bus and went to the square in Baraboo). We’ll see how long that lasts.
On a somewhat related note, I attended a "Back the Badge" event last Friday in the parking lot of Viking Grocery and the True Value in Reedsburg. Hundreds of people showed up to see the Reedsburg, Lake Delton, Wisconsin Dells and Baraboo Police, Sauk County Sheriff and Wisconsin State Patrol folks who were there to hang out with the public and let people (and their kids) check out all of their types of vehicles and equipment. They had a big cookout and law enforcement was invited to eat free all day.. The support for law enforcement here is huge, and they cannot keep up with the demand for Back the Badge signs. That irritates the BLM idiots. (“Pigs in a blanket. Fry ‘em like bacon!”) Fortunately, no BLM goofballs showed up there.
So, it looks like Sauk County is on the map in a bigger way than we expected. Things may get really interesting around here in the next few months!
