Zero evidence of a Walker "criminal scheme"
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel [WI], by Christian Schneider

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/21/2014 5:59:00 AM

Sometimes, the court of public opinion overrules a state’s actual courts. And in Scott Walker’s case, there is little chance for appeal. On Thursday morning, hundreds of pages of documents relating to the “John Doe II” investigation of Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 recall campaign were ordered released. These documents comprised a number of legal filings by both prosecutors and defendants. But some media and liberal groups picked up on one specific 2013 charge by prosecutors that alleged Walker had been part of a “criminal scheme” to circumvent campaign finance laws. Immediately, national news outlets and liberal activists ran with the

Walker should sue every newspaper that used the wor "criminal" in their storyline.It wa well known these accusations were trown out of court,so floatingthe wor "crimial" was a cheesy smear.

But just look how how the left digs under rocks to nail a conservative compare to the ohter way around. Obama co-ordinated with out outside groups ever since he started running.There was no open hiring for Obamacare navigators as old time liberal cronies got the jobs.I´m sure Obama never conspired without outside groups to waste billions on green energy schemes.

I still hope Walker runs in 2016.He´s the best man for the job.

I love this story. It makes the Left look so unfathomably stupid:

In fact, Peterson was only the first judge to rule against prosecutors. Last month, ruling on a lawsuit brought by the defendants, federal Judge Rudolph Randa shut down the entire investigation, issuing a sternly worded rebuke to prosecutors pursing Walker and his allies. So despite all the celebrating liberal groups were doing with the release of the documents on Thursday, few of them knew that the case is currently dead.

Rush Limbaugh spent almost his entire first hour on this yesterday, explaining to his huge audience that there is no case here, that it was closed and disposed of a while back pretty much as a frivolous lawsuit. But the NYT deliberately and with malice, printed it as new news, attempting to make yet another checkmark on its long list of conservatives to be destroyed.

I love the smell of crow.

This is more proof that liberals are very gullible people. And the most gullible liberals work in our main stream media.

Gullible? No, that´s too kind. This was evil. It was a deliberate attempt to destroy Walker. I hope it hasn´t. Innocence really doesn´t matter if you´ve already been tried and convicted in the press.

"...one specific 2013 charge by prosecutors that alleged Walker had been part of a “criminal scheme” to circumvent campaign finance laws."

That sounds remarkably like the obama campaigns in 2008 AND 2012. IMO, this is clearly propaganda to inoculate obama and the dimocrats. [remember the no security on credit card donations adn the foreign donations?]

And if it destroys Walker, so much the better.

The Milwaukee Journal today is running multiple pieces claiming that Gov Walker´s legal problems are not at all over and decrying in an editorial that a Federal judge had the temerity to shutdown a state investigation. Their Politifact truth checker rated Gov. Walker´s claim that he was completely exonerated as false. The Journal has been a willing partner in the witch-hunt from its inception as has the Democrat machine. Watch for Eric Holder to jump into this with a Federal investigation next. Anything to destroy or castrate Scott Walker just before the election.

My local newspaper, the Washington Observer-Reporter (in SW Pennsylvania) covered this story yesterday with the following misleading headline, "Prosecutors: Wisconsin governor part of criminal scheme". However, this same newspaper (in a community with a Republican representative) has not once in the past weeks/months covered one story on the genuine IRS scandal.

The strongest evidence of media bias is in the decision to cover/not cover a story. In the case of Scott Walker, our local newspaper failed to cover a real story, covered a false story, and used deliberately-misleading headlines. Heck, even the NY Times finally (and reluctantly) covered the IRS scandal. If you´re wondering where all the radical, wacko-leftists went, they live in your community with a megaphone.

Before I continue with my string of posts on the theme of reform conservatism’s correct views on everything, let me make a brief foray into real-world politics: Yesterday Senator Marco Rubio gave a domestic policy speech, co-hosted by Hillsdale College and the YG Network, that’s worth reading if you’re interested in what a reformist vision looks like when it’s an actual Republican politician (rather than a tribe of conservative scribblers) giving it form and substance. Naturally, it strikes me as a very impressive and encouraging speech. But I think I would say that even if I were less inclined to

Chris McDaniel´s Lesson:
Clueless Conservatism Loses

In Tuesday’s Republican primary runoff in Mississippi, Chris McDaniel could have run on an economic growth platform and won, but he chose to run as a clueless conservative, and he lost. The lesson from this race is clear. If conservatives forget that economic growth is the signature Republican issue, they should expect to lose. Yes, the actions taken by the Republican establishment to help incumbent senator Thad Cochran were egregious and disgusting, but if McDaniel had given the electorate any sign that he knew how to fix the economy (which is the voters’ #1 concern right now), he would have won

He’s the increasing rare Republican who doesn’t outright frighten the electorate. And the way things are going, the Indiana governor might end up being the last candidate standing. Even at a gathering of Republican bigwigs who have come together on the occasion of a speech by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, it is hard to find very many people who are very excited about Mike Pence. And so in the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel in midtown Manhattan, at the annual New York State Republican Party dinner, two top GOP operatives were lifting up their pant legs to compare their respective argyle socks,

A shocking new report from the Center for Immigration Studies claims to prove that every single new job created in America for the last fourteen years has gone to immigrants, legal and illegal. This would fly in the face of those who claim that immigration is an economic boon to native born Americans: The CIS report found that over the last 14 years, people who were born in the United States held 114.8 million jobs in 2000, and held 114.7 million jobs in 2014, a drop of 127,000.

Bill and Hillary Clinton discussed the future president’s compulsive personality, his struggles with the loneliness of public office, his ambitions for the future, and the future first lady’s career and hopes for her daughter Chelsea in a series of interviews with an Arkansas journalist between 1983 and 1987. The interviews, recorded on more than five hours of audiotape and donated to the University of Arkansas Special Collections archives by the Arkansas reporter Roy Reed, were supposed to make the pages of Esquire. The story, which would have marked the Clintons’ first major profile in a national magazine, never ran due to space

Hillary appears poised to win the Democratic nomination and then the presidency — again. “Again” is the problem with such a prediction, and it should raise questions not only unasked, but apparently subconsciously avoided. The core question is whether or not the notion of Hillary Clinton as a political titan is more myth than reality. By all accounts, Hillary Rodham had a stellar academic career – and a very politically active one. At Wellesley College she was the first student to deliver its commencement address. She had her pick of Harvard or Yale for law school. When she graduated from Yale

Malaysia Airlines (MASM.KL) Flight MH370 was most likely on autopilot when it crashed into the Indian Ocean further south than previously thought, Australian officials said on Thursday, as they charted the next phase of a so far fruitless search. The new analysis comes more than 100 days after the Boeing (BA.N) 777, carrying 239 passengers and crew, disappeared on March 8 shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing. Investigators say what little evidence they have to work with suggests the plane was deliberately diverted thousands of kilometres from its scheduled route before eventually plunging into the Indian Ocean.

LAUREL, Mississippi -- Defeated Tea Party U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel issued a statement Wednesday afternoon indicated a challenge of Tuesday night´s results from his Republican runoff with Sen. Thad Cochran was still a possibility. "The conservative movement is alive in Mississippi," McDaniel said. "The Republicans who voted last night made it clear they´re looking for conservative change in Mississippi. "But the results also tell another story," McDaniel continued.

Army Clears Bergdahl of Any
Misconduct During Captivity

As the Army continues to investigate whether Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is guilty of deserting his unit, this afternoon they said there is no reason to believe that Bergdahl engaged in any misconduct during his five years in captivity. In fact, that´s all that the Army said: We have no reason to believe that he engaged in any misconduct." Bergdahl electrified the national discourse last month after he was freed in a prisoner swap involving five members of the Taliban held at Guantanamo Bay. As charges against his character emerged, the narrative quickly shifted from Bergdahl as POW to Bergdahl as despicable deserter, unworthy

I’m gratified that Senator Paul responded to my criticism of the constitutionality of his plan for a federal bill to reenfranchise some felons, but I’m afraid that his response is quite unpersuasive. Senator Paul seems to think that states can decide who votes in state elections but that the federal government has the final say on who can vote in federal elections, but that is just not true. The U.S. Constitution itself explicitly gives the authority to decide who votes in federal elections to the states (consistent, of course, with other constitutional guarantees, like the prohibition of poll taxes).

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know.

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

What was humorous in that remarks is known only to Clinton. “I shouldn’t have said the, I think, five or so words that I said,” the former secretary of state said. “My inartful use of those five words doesn’t change who I am.” Later in the interview, Ifill asked if Clinton had become the Democratic adaptation of
