The gun-control debate is nothing more than a destructive distraction. Is there a single viable gun-control proposal of the last decade that would keep a committed jihadist from arming himself? Indeed, the gun-control debate keeps us from focusing on the true danger: a terrorist movement that’s learning how to attack a free society. It keeps us from focusing on the terrorists’ capabilities and motivations. It keeps us from asking the very hard questions about how to defeat a movement that’s based not just in a jihadist army that takes and holds territory but also in an ancient religious idea that has never gone away. Against that backdrop, I can understand the very human temptation to fix one’s attention not on the colossal challenge of jihad but on the seemingly more manageable and more familiar challenge of attacking Republicans. Focusing on jihad means looking Islam in the face. Focusing on jihad means rethinking long-held assumptions about policy, politics, and liberal coalitions. Focusing on jihad means recognizing that many Muslim members of the leftist coalition actually, truly hate the LGBT side of the liberal alliance.

MADISON, Wis. – When the left-wing Center for Media & Democracy, a “dark money” scold, was found to have profited by anonymous donors, CMD’s executive director Lisa Graves summed up the hypocrisy of the left: She insisted liberal dark money is different than conservative dark money.
Here is the list of dark money groups who are supporting Feingold Please note NARAL Pro-Choice America. What a fine bunch of supporters.
The Environmental Defense Action Fund has spent more than $1.6 million on ads attacking Johnson. It has a PAC, which discloses its donors, and a 501(c)(4), which does not. The group leaned on its dark money arm to pick up the tab.
VoteVets.Org, also a 501(c)(4), has run ads accusing Johnson of ignoring whistleblower warnings at the scandal-plagued Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The group attempted to counter ads by a conservative issue advocacy group that hammered Feingold for failing to do anything with memos marked “hand-delivered” to his office detailing the problems at Tomah.
VoteVets does not disclose its donors, but IRS filings show it is substantially funded by far-left environmental groups.
The VoteVets Action Fund boasts that it has run “over 51 commercials and radio spots in 32 states advocating the support of our friends,” and “Aired over $22 million in television and radio ads, advocating re-election for allies and urging defeat of those who do not support troops and veterans.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America also paid for ads hitting Johnson. Its dark money wing paid for the ads, although it also runs a political action committee that discloses its funding sources.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund was involved in the attack ad. The group, too, operates a PAC and a 501(C)(4). It’s not clear which entity financed the ad.
Hillary Clinton front group American Bridge 21st Century also has spent money on issue ads in the race. The group is not a dark money organization, but is affiliated withAmerican Bridge 21st Century Foundation, which does not disclose its donors.

Just how successful these various efforts by the Left will be in Wisconsin and other battleground states remains to be seen. But one thing is certain: if conservative political groups don’t provide a powerful counter-punch, a win by liberal Democrats in numerous elections is a foregone conclusion.Full story....Here
Interesting article, several points of disagreement but an interesting read.

"while conservatives want fewer voters because they believe the ones remaining will be more conservative," In my experience, it is not that conservatives want fewer voters, it's that conservatives want voters who understand the duty and obligation to the Republic. Not personal whim or personal gain.

It isn’t that voters are not profoundly ignorant, it’s just that making them less ignorant isn’t really going to help much on Election Day, because political preferences are not, in the main, a function of knowledge. Full story....Here
Can I at least get a response as to why you won't run my op ed? It's factual and I challenge anyone at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to refute any of the facts. You have the largest readership in the state. Don't they deserve to know the truth from the horse's mouth amidst all the attacks on my character?... Full story....Here
