heard her on a radio interview this morning.

I'm not impressed.

I'm to the point that any and all politicians need to go.

Time to flush the toilet and put some fresh turds in there.

I found out a couple weeks ago, didn't know it wasn’t already public knowledge. They had her and her whole film crew in at work to film part of that video. They were there like half the day to get about 5-10 seconds of video.

At this point she's probably a better choice than skeletor, but what we maybe need is the ghost of Joe McCarthy to step in.

This.
Talk radio hasn’t even acknowledged him.
And when the primary race really gets going, they will attack him like they did Kevin Nicholson.

Establishment Republicans all the way.

I just heard Rebecca on the radio.   I like her tough on crime stance.  Her suzy homemaker voice is not a good voice for a politician.

The attack ads on Kleefisch have started. Today it was all scary scary not treating covid seriously.

Everything in the ad they said she was doing seemed pretty reasonable to me.  Thanks for letting me know!

They always seem to "find" 'just enough' ballots to win, because they don't turn in their results from big blue areas until all the red area results are known. The way to beat this is for the predominantly Republican areas to withhold results until all the precincts in Milwaukee and Madison have been tabulated and accounted for, 100%. They can't cheat by "finding" 'just enough' to win, if they don't know what 'just enough' to win is.

When she said she wanted to disperse government closer to where the people live, she lost me.  The only thing the government should be dispersed into is an incinerator- ESPECIALLY if you're a "conservative".  The LAST thing I want, is government any closer to me than it already is.

Maybe you misunderstood, but my take on that is let the people rule themselves. Delegate more power to local governments, versus having the entire state run by Madison.

I have reservations about Tommy Thompson. Granted, he is a local guy, ( he was born and raised no more than 20 miles from where I'm sitting) his record on supporting pro 2A legislation has a lot to be desired. He didn't want a concealed carry bill on his desk during his previous terms as governor and if he were elected governor again, I don't think he would sign a "constitutional carry" bill if it reached his desk.

True, which is why we need the vote (in the rest of the state) to be so lopsided that they can't steal enough votes in Milwaukee and Madison.  If Milwaukee County turns in twice as many votes as they have people, it's going to draw some attention.

Responding to yourself? Some liberal karen isn’t voting for Becky just because she’s a woman.

EXCLUSIVE: GOP Mega-Donor Diane Hendricks is pushing Tommy Thompson To Run For Governor
By Mark Belling, WISN-AM

In a potentially huge development, one of the most influential Republican donors in America, Beloit's Diane Hendricks, is urging Tommy Thompson to run for governor. Thompson, the outgoing acting UW System President, was elected governor a record four times but is now 80 years old. Many have found his flirtation with a run this year as curious but the support of Hendricks could mean several million dollars in his campaign coffers. Hendricks has been listed a support of presumed frontrunner Rebecca Kleefisch. If she actually prefers Thompson, the GOP race for governor is suddenly wide open. The state's giant Republican donors are split in the race. Husband and wife Dick and Liz Uihlein of Uline Corporation aren't even on the same page. Dick supports Kevin Nicholson while Liz is backing Kleefisch. In the meantime, former President Donald Trump hasn't endorsed anybody yet. Trump is a confidante of Hendricks and if the two of them back the same candidate, that one would likely be the favorite. And then there's Tim Michels. The head of the giant pipeline company that bears his family name is still thinking about running and his significant personal financial wealth would allow him to be able to self fund his campaign. The campaign that appears to be going nowhere is that of State Rep. Tim Ramthun who jumped in the race after a rift with Assembly Speaker Robin but has so far attracted little support. It is stunning that the GOP field remains influx at this late date. The August primary election is only four months away. The reason for all of the Republican interest? It is widely believed that Democrat incumbent Tony Evers can be beaten

Tommy just needs to retire.  There's got to be a better candidate than him - just not sure who at this point.  Tommy is too moderate for me.  I think we need to go a lot farther right than him.  Someone like DeSantis would be just fine by me.

I agree, Tommy T does need to retire. My greatest fear is the he will garner enough support from name recognition in the primary race and get it into his head to run as an independent if he doesn't win the nomination. If this happens, he could siphon off enough conservative votes in November and hand Evers another undeserved "victory".

The government needs LESS POWER, not delegation of MORE power to ever-more localized "czars" of stupid half-wit problems.  

We need to remove the government's defacto-authority over our lives by REMOVING GOVERNMENT, not re-distributing it.

I feel like I actually hear what they ARE saying, when most people hear what they WANT them to say.

She's not going to get rid of any authoritarian self-important bureaucrats.  Our complete failure of a legislature won't permit any of that.

Republicans are the problem.  The party is run by dinosaurs who are the EXACT SAME PEOPLE who operate the Democrat party.  People use the term RINO all the time, and I think they have it backward.  Republicans and Democrats are the same; they always vote to increase government power, spending and intrusion.  The Republicans ALWAYS justify it with some ridiculous half-assed argument for conceding; "it was either this or something worse".  NO; it could have been NOTHING AT ALL which would have been BETTER almost 100% of the time.

Until we have a "political party" that ACTUALLY stands for principles, conservatives are the RINOs.

As much as I hate to say, I fully agree with you. The fraud was immediately known but you can’t undo the damage when it takes more than 2 years to compile evidence. I had hopes in the Az audit but that’s seems to have fizzled out as well. Add that to a complicit media and voting is mostly a waste of time.

Does the left "cheat" in elections? Just the obvious biased reporting of the overwhelming majority of big media should be considered "cheating" ...but it's not, because who can accuse those cheaters, but the cheaters themselves? The fox guarding the henhouse.  Do the Dems commit fraud in the actual ballots or ballot tabulating? Is the sky blue? Of course they do. They always have.

So how do we stop it? Sit home on election day and plug our ears, or throw up our arms in frustration and say "See... I told you so"? Yep, that'll help.

What will help more is getting more people to vote the way we do, not less. They're able to cheat because elections are usually relatively close, within 5-7% points or less. We can eliminate the cheating not by making them closer, but making the result more lopsided in our favor. So lopsided that fraud to overcome it would be impossible to cover up. If you have 10 people voting, and the preliminary result is 6 to 4, it's not too difficult to "cheat" that into a 4-6 result. But if it's 7-3, it becomes harder. 8-2 even harder, and 9-1 impossible. The answer is not staying home in protest, it's getting anyone you know who will vote the right way to go and vote. The "stay at homes" is what loses elections. You cannot cheat your way out of a "landslide" loss.

I find it pretty amazing that about 50% of the people don't even vote in elections but are the ones that whine the most.  If you're too lazy to take to take a few minutes out of your day to vote, you deserve the shit storm that results.  I make sure I light a fire under my kids to get their asses in and vote (for the right candidates, naturally!)  They for the most part don't need a reminder, but I feel it my civic duty to make sure.  The problem won't go away by itself - it'll just get worse.  The local elections are the ones that have a hard time getting 25% of the people to vote and they are where the problems start - school boards, DA's, Sheriffs, etc.  I just wish the Republicans started playing hardball.  There are a number of them that are just taking up space.  Time for some real conservatives and new blood.  Repub. leadership in Madison if sorrily lacking.

While I'm a naturally cynical person, I fully agree with this. I moved from WI to VA last year, and my biggest concern was that the Dems had complete control of the government, and seemed poised to strengthen that hold last Nov. However, the Dem candidate for Gov really put his foot in his mouth at a debate saying something along the lines of "parents need to stay out of classrooms". This really motivated people on the Right, as well as woke up a lot of people in the middle, and even some lightly left-leaning folks, to what today's Dem party is really about. The GOP candidates ended up winning the Governor, Lieutenant Gov, and Attorney General races, we took back control of the House, and cut down Dem's hold on the Senate down to 21-19, which may flip in the next election. We also got a lot of better people in school board positions. It was a huge win for conservatives in a state that seemed hopelessly lost to Dem control for the foreseeable future.

I'm positive fraud occurred in places, but people were motivated enough that the turnout was enough to overcome any fraud that may have happened. I would love to see rock solid Voter ID laws in place everywhere, from the federal election level on down to elections for local dog catcher, but in the mean time we need every conservative to get out and vote at every opportunity, and motivate those conservatives around you to vote as well!
