Hail, the Wisconsin Supreme Court!
In no uncertain terms the Wisconsin Supreme Court dropped in its tracks an out-of-control, all-powerful “investigation” into Wisconsin citizens’ political activity in support of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. The “investigation,” really little more than an attempt at raw political intimidation, by the state’s Democrat party, was complete with the illicit use of police assault teams on peaceful citizens’ homes in the middle of the night and confiscation of personal correspondence, financial records and personal property.
Two excerpts from the court’s opinion: “It is utterly clear that the special prosecutor has employed theories of law that do not exist in order to investigate citizens who were wholly innocent of any wrongdoing;” and “Let one point be clear: our conclusion today ends this unconstitutional John Doe investigation.” The “investigation” was being run as a “John Doe” operation to try to hide it under the cover of legal darkness.
Wisconsin Watchdog, Bill Jacobson’s Legal Insurrection, David French for National Review Online and the Wall Street Journal have done the yeoman’s work on this outrageous story and deserve much of the credit for getting this into the public eye. Check out the links to understand how the left operates. Prepare to be infuriated.
Interestingly, similar to Brad Avakian’s similarly abusive practice in Oregon, the perpetrators of this tyranny in Wisconsin relied on gag orders for the victims to keep them from crying out. The left is depending on silence in its assault on freedom. Funny how the left works, isn’t it?
The Wisconsin assault began to run into trouble when one, Eric O’Keefe, defied the gag order and went public. The Wisconsin Supreme Court noted O’Keefe’s bravery: “It is fortunate, indeed, for every other citizen of this great State who is interested in the protection of fundamental liberties that the special prosecutor chose as his targets innocent citizens who had both the will and the means to fight the unlimited resources of an unjust prosecution.”
The name John Chisholm should be on your lips freshly remembered. As Milwaukee County District Attorney he’s the engineer that drove the train of oppression. Supposedly, it was his wife, a teachers’ union flunkee, whining about Walker that started all of this.
The man should be removed from office (sadly it’s deep blue Milwaukee so that’s not likely to happen) and disbarred for abuse of office and public trust. The last seen of John Chisholm should be him selling pencils for nickles and dimes on a street corner.
That this was not a major TV and newspaper story is a sad, very sad, commentary upon our mainstream media and its bias. It should be noted that the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was used as a stalking horse several times in the attack on the conservative targets. It has a lot to answer for.
The putative reason for the sham investigation was “political coordination” between Walker and the targets. The “coordination” aspect was laughable considering the political incest between unions, liberal activists groups, the media, the Democrat party at all levels and Democrat politicians. But then, galling hypocrisy is a liberal trademark
It’s a small victory considering the multifront breadth of the liberal menace, though it is great for those who were under assault. And its exposure will hopefully encourage more resistance to political tyranny.
