Judicial activism once again rears its head. Despite the majority of Wisconsin voters backing Scott Walker in the recall election and thus giving him a mandate, a Dane County Judge spits in the public’s eye.

Dane County Circuit Court Judge Juan Colás has struck down portions of Act 10, declaring them to be unconstitutional.

His decision came in a case brought by the Madison teachers union and a union representing employees of the city of Milwaukee.

He ruled that several sections violated employees’ rights of free speech, association and equal protection.

Gov. Scott Walker said he was confident the state would on appeal.

This is disgusting and hopefully Scott Walker wins the appeal.

1389 Blog condemns anti-Sikh violence in no uncertain terms.

Balbar Singh Sodhi, 1949-2001
Thinking back to the originial 9-11 attack in 2001, you may remember a horrific and wildly misdirected backlash. Some moron in Texas wanted to get even with the Muslims for the hijacking and did so by killing a Sikh, Please listen to this podcast regarding the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting.

I have had a number of encounters with Sikhs and cannot seem to remember a bad experience. Amongst all the non-Judaeo-Christian faiths, the Sikhs seem to be the opposite extreme of the radicalized Muslims. Sikhs respect all other faiths, while Muslims have shown little if any respect for Christians and Jews, their so-called “people of the book.” Of course, Muslim hatred for those of non-Abrahamic faiths, notably Hindus, Buddhists, and Sikhs, is legendary.

The Sikh faith is relatively new, having been in existence for less than 600 years, yet it has more adherents than Judaism. While Sikhs do hold doctrines that Christians do not accept, Sikhs also believe that we can be saved in our own faith. Compare that to our radical Muslim “friends” and it is clear that Sikhs pose no threat to us.

At the risk of overstating the obvious, violence against Sikhs does not further our counterjihad efforts.

If even one person who confuses Sikhs with Muslims and therefore supposes that harming Sikhs is somehow helpful to our cause, happens upon this blog post and changes his mind, it is worth sounding a little silly to those readers who already know better.

Please listen to this podcast regarding the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting.


Rodan Note: Sikhs are wonderful human beings. I have had the pleasure of meeting many Sikhs. Their ancestors bravely fought Islamic invaders of India. Notice Neo-Nazis never target Muslims? That is because they are allies. I condemn this attack on a peaceful people who are proud Americans.

Battlefield Wisconsin! A Crushing Victory For The Good Guys!

The union thugs simply refuse to allow themselves to take the hint in Wisconsin. This is the greatest sign of the desperation of the left that we have seen to date. Make no mistake about it, they saw, and quite correctly too, that Wisconsin was the place where their battle line must be drawn, and they lost it big, multiple times. In last night’s rebuke of Socialism, they attempted to recall enough State Senators to regain control of the State Senate. While they did manage to flip two seats, the overall vote is very telling. The GOP had a 53% to 47% advantage, which is a margin greater than that enjoyed by Scott Walker in his electoral victory last year. So to recap, the referendum election, in which the guy who supposedly the referendum was about, and who supposedly only holds a 37% approval rating, won a larger margin of victory than he did on his own election night. Wisconsinites have shown again, they are tired of being held hostage by the Socialists who used to run their state. But wait, that’s not even the best part.

The people of Wisconsin proved something else last night. They proved that overwhelming amounts of money from outside sources and interlopers can be defeated. The union thugs who have been attempting to subvert Wisconsin politics for the better part of a year now, out spent the good citizens of Wisconsin by a margin of 2 to 1. The usual suspects, AFSCME, SEIU, ACORN, AFLCIO, have had their boots and pocket books on the ground in full force in Wisconsin since the State Legislature and Governor’s mansion were both lost to them in November of 2010. They have been building up to this moment since that day, and have in fact promised more. Bear something else in mind as well, the union thugs face their own round of recall elections this upcoming Tuesday, as three Democrat, “flea baggers,” will face the music for their wayward trip during the legislative process earlier this year.

What all of this means for Wisconsin, and the rest of the nation, is that the midterm elections of 2010 were a bellwether, and not merely a temper tantrum of the electorate. The rightward shift of the American people is very real, and they are correctly identifying the source of their pain. That source is the Socialists and Marxists who have take control of today’s Democrat Party. The Republicans who surprisingly won electoral victory in November of 2010 in Wisconsin did so by campaigning on the very things that they have been doing. It is not as if, like the Democrats, they campaigned on one set of values and principles, and then did the opposite. They put it all out in the open, and campaigned on a platform of fiscal austerity and reigning in the public sector union stranglehold on the State. It was the last part of their message which caused the battle lines to be drawn. The union thugs around the country realized pretty quickly that the money laundering operation known as public sector union finance would be soon coming to an end. The public sector unions represent less than 3% of our population, and yet have held an extraordinary grip on power in almost every state house around the country. Bob Trumka has been the most oft visitor to the White House during the Obama Presidency, their expectation is that the money train will continue to pull into their station. Union dues are taken automatically from the paychecks of their members, and funneled directly back into the campaigns and lobbying efforts of Democrat politicians. Zero is the sum total of contribution to any person or initiative on the other side of the aisle. The favor is repaid by no serious contract negotiation taking place, but simple agreement to any and all union demands during contract time. And, why not. Any increase in costs to America will simply become a donation directly into the coffers of the Democrat Party anyhow. It’s not as if the politicians need to worry about where all that green is coming from.

The unions pumped a boatload of resources into Wisconsin in November of 2010, and they lost. They staged riots in Wisconsin, Indiana, and Ohio during the early part of 2011, and they lost. They dumped a ton of money and resources into the State Supreme Court race in Wisconsin earlier this year, and lost. They pulled of the largest State Senate Recall Election in U.S. history last night, and lost. They lost all of these races despite outspending the good people of Wisconsin by a staggering margin of 2 to 1. With access to the public teat being cut off, their resources are no longer unlimited, and even George Soros will soon be getting tired of pumping money into losing efforts. So last night of course, the decision was made to go ahead and try for the big prize, they’re going to go for a recall of Governor Walker at the earliest allowable date under Wisconsin’s electoral statutes. These union thugs are like little terminators. No matter how many times you beat them back, they just keep on coming. I am not talking about normal elections here, but about the crap they pull even after the citizens have made their wishes well known. I guess when you take the income source away from criminals, they get a little upset.

David Prosser now ahead by a significant margin

If the current vote count holds, the Sage of Culver City will have egg on his face again. Not all votes were counted Waukesha County on Tuesday. Today the country released new numbers that gave Wisconsin Supreme Justice David Prosser now has a 7500 vote lead over his Leftist challenger.

A significant change Thursday in the vote count in a Wisconsin Supreme Court election raised the incumbent into the lead, in a race that some see as a referendum on the state’s Republican governor.

Conservative Justice David Prosser had faced a surprisingly strong challenge from JoAnne Kloppenburg, a little-known assistant state attorney general who drew last-minute support from opponents of Gov. Scott Walker’s push to limit union power as part of a budget-balancing plan.


Prosser, 68, was down by a mere 204 votes in the initial statewide vote count from Tuesday’s election, and a recount was expected. But on Thursday, Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said not all of her county’s votes had been reported on Tuesday due to “human error.” The revised numbers gave Prosser a boost of more than 7,000 votes.

Prosser’s new 7,500 vote-lead, though unofficial, would be enough to keep him in his office if other vote totals hold up at the end of canvassing in all of Wisconsin’s 72 counties.

This is a huge defeat for the Left!
