Wisconsin Burning


If you follow current events, the John Doe investigations in Wisconsin may ring a familiar note, and likely it is something that you are familiar with by name and vague generalities only.  I was aware that that Governor Scott Walker had been investigated for campaign illegalities and had been exonerated, and that the investigation was given the name “John Doe” because the names of possible co-conspirators were unknown.

a process whereby rogue regimes or organizations abuse legal doctrines and processes to accomplish through sheer harassment and attrition what can’t be accomplished through legitimate diplomatic means.

It is hardly a new concept.  The very same Democrat Party used these tactics over 50 years ago in my home state of Mississippi.  The primary enforcers of Party doctrine in those days was the Ku Klux Klan.  The victims were Black Americans who wanted nothing more than to exercise their First Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process and vote.  In turn, they were subjected to harassment, intimidation, and much, much worse.  It didn’t end with a kumbaya moment of clarity on the part of the Democrats-In-Charge.  No, it ended with the exposure of the criminal activity, arousal of public opinion, and by the direct intervention of the FBI.

In Wisconsin, the victims were Tea Party conservatives who wanted nothing more than to exercise their first Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process.  In turn, they were harassed, intimidated, and threatened with jail if they even spoke about the investigation.  Personal property was illegally seized.  Raids on conservative families were conducted by local Police in the dead of night.  The enforcer of Party doctrine was the Wisconsin Judiciary, who rubber-stamped every subpoena and warrant requested by a Democrat District Attorney in this modern day witch hunt.

Until this moment, there has been no exposure of the criminal partisan activity in Wisconsin.  There has been no opportunity to arouse public opinion.  The secrecy surrounding the John Doe Investigations has been all-encompassing, allowing for only the barest of details to emerge – selectively leaked by the DA.  Appeals are currently pending in both the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and the US Supreme Court.  The Department of Justice is absent, complicit by its silence.  No intervention by the FBI is forthcoming.

Now, we are awake.  And we are watching.
