Walker Derangement Syndrome – Another Swing And A Miss

WALKER 2016-2

Scott Walker sits upon a throne made from the skulls of his enemies.

Daily Caller:

Websites Forced To Correct And Retract False Stories About Scott Walker

Several websites were forced to correct, and in one case retract, stories they published Friday which falsely accused Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker of wanting to rollback sexual assault reporting requirements at state colleges and universities.

The left-leaning website Jezebel kicked off the latest attack on Walker, a Republican who is considering a 2016 presidential bid, with an article headlined “Scott Walker Wants Colleges To Stop Reporting Sexual Assaults.”

“Under Walker’s budget, universities would no longer have to report the number of sexual assaults that take place on a campus to the Department of Justice. Under Walker’s plan, university employees who witness a sexual assault would no longer have to report it,” Jezebel reporter Natasha Vargas-Cooper wrote on Friday.

“There are no policy recommendations in Walker’s budget how or what would replace these reporting mechanisms. The Governor simply instructs that they should be deleted,” Vargas-Cooper continued.

Vargas-Cooper gave a good indication of how she was approaching her subject, describing Walker as “a small-time guy who is having a big-time moment by playing the conservative werewolf.”


But Vargas-Cooper’s claim — which was picked up by The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, and Raw Story — was inaccurate and devoid of context.

It ultimately led to a correction at Jezebel, a changed-up headline at HuffPo and a complete retraction at The Daily Beast.

What did Vargas-Cooper get wrong?

First, the University of Wisconsin’s 26-school system already reports sexual assault statistics to the U.S. Department of Education. The new proposal, part of a bill which will cut state spending on higher education by $300 million, removes the requirement that the UW system report sexual assaults to the state’s Department of Justice.

Vargas-Cooper appears to have been under the impression that the bill removed a requirement to report to the federal DOJ.

Second, the UW system, and not Walker, requested the change to the language of the bill asserting that current reporting requirements are “redundant,” given its reporting to the U.S. Department of Education.


But wait! There’s more!

Vargas-Cooper was very reluctant and ungracious when it came to setting the record straight:

Daily Beast retracts Scott Walker hit piece, publishes new story alongside train wreck of a correction

‘That’s your apology?’ Reporter of debunked Scott Walker hit piece remains ‘rather indignant’

Take 2: Jezebel writer’s second attempt at an apology a noted improvement

Jezebel writer who smeared Scott Walker has protected her Twitter account

As of this writing the headline at Jezebel reads:

Scott Walker Wants Colleges to Stop Reporting Sexual Assaults [UPDATE 2]

This is what happens when you are so blinded by hate that you sacrifice your credibility on the altar of ideology.

    The fight last night between Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano lasted 14 seconds. Rousey won.

    I cracked open a beer. I sat down. I took a sip. The fight was over.

        Sorry, with all the breathless comments made about women candidates appearance I just had to go there and comment on a male candidates appearance!

    The thing about left wing viral lying is that even when the lie is exposed they refuse to let go of it, …it’s really disgusting.

    • piper says:

      They have nothing but nothing to report so in order to keep their readers they denigrate and malign the opposition until they’re hit with the reality of obama and dem. policies.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Viral lying is so true because I learned to do that at DU. When I asked for the facts behind a certain campaign statement, I was told “just believe it”. Crazy cult it was 😛

      • leslie says:

        the group I was in said to say, “In my heart I know it’s true”.

      • Constance says:

        I debunked the Left’s lie about Hobby Lobby denying women birth control, to a bunch of 24 year olds, who were taken in by the Obama machine. When I pointed out that Hobby Lobby had always provided something like 15 of the 20 forms of birth control but object to a few of them because the interfere with already fertilized eggs. They Googled it and then were outraged that they had been misled by Dems, they felt led into looking foolish. I took them into Hobby Lobby with me and they were in love with the crafting super store.

    • 49erDweet says:

      It’s really not lying, you see. It might be mistestifying, but it captures their subconscious intent and that’s all that matters.

      She wants to be relevant during the ongoing pendulum swing to the right. Best part, MSNBC will end up doing the same. It’s all about the bucks, no treble.

      • leslie says:

        You’re right, Dandy. I saw it on Morning Joe while I was “on vacation” this week. They didn’t even mock GWB when covering some story about his respect and admiration for the veterans. I knew then, that they were in fear of losing whatever they thought they had.

        MSNBC did this about a decade ago. Around the time of the Iraq invasion, MSNBC had already gotten rid of Olbermann (the first time) and cancelled Phil Donahue’s show which had become a nightly anti-war program. But they didn’t really understand conservatism, so they hired such Republican luminaries as Joe Scarborough (he got a 9pm show, the Maddow slot) and Michael Savage. Tucker Carlson was also on the network for a while.

        Let’s not forget. Chris Matthews was discovered by Roger Ailes.

    • DandyTIger says:

      I so love that the left is going after Bill-O, a blow-hard conservative opinion guy. Seriously, that’s their big prize? And what’s extra sad is, in this case, they don’t seem to have anything substantial against him. Kind of sad really.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        If Bill-O had to retire I wouldn’t miss him, but he’s not the ogre they make him out to be.

        • 1539days says:

          Speculation is if BillO had to retire, Greg Gutfeld will get the time slot.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I long lobbied Fox to just put Red Eye on at 11pm to go head to head with Stewart and Colbert. Didn’t need the Billo repeat then, though his numbers were still better than MSNBC and CNN’s prime time.

      • Constance says:

        Bill O loves this stuff! He is a showman and these accusations bring attention. Bill O gives a lot of money to charity, a lot of it to Veterans.

    I blame faux journalism on Sarah Palin 😉 I do think they (lefty blog and media obot worshipers) write to be wrong on purpose, like “I can see Russia from my house” was supposed to be funny, on a comedy show, by a fake Sarah. To this day, the Obots believe it was the real Sarah, even after 7 years of debunking. It still makes all the SNL highlight shows too. Even in Tina Fey’s memoir, she really thinks that was her big break. Wow.

    I’ve noticed more and more PDS since, usually wrong and retracted, but a huge majority of the haters still believe anything that hates on Palin. Now they’re doing it to Walker …. “the story might be wrong but you know he really does think like that !”. It worked for Obama because he’s untouchable or you’re a racist 😀

    • piper says:

      They’ll have to be striped naked of money, prestige and power before any kind of awakening will take place. Remember all those monied people and press who believed in the Potemkin myth and wanted to remake America.
      Not sure that Walter Duranty of NYT fame ever wrote anything negative about Stalin’s Soviet Union. He actively worked to destroy Malcolm Muggeridge who wrote about the Ukrainian famine and other atrocities in Soviet Union.

    • leslie says:

      I still cant have a conversation with some of my fam/friends and say anything about Sarah without someone saying what an idiot she is or what a loser she is or how stupid (or racist) anyone is who voted for her.

      ” It worked for Obama because he’s untouchable or you’re a racist “
      I am now, so used to being called a racist, I almost introduce myself with, “Hi, I’m leslie; I’m a racist”.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Like we talked about the other day, Obama can mess up this country as much as he wants because he knows the next President can never blame Obama, that would be racist ! 😉

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think officially you have about 3 more weeks 🙂 Though when I lived in Lake Placid, NY, we had snow on Mother’s Day. I remember that because we cancelled a group mother-daugher mountain hike and we all went to a mall instead…..thank you SNOW !

    • swanspirit says:

      We are getting an inch or more of freezing rain, today , on top of our four inches of frozen snow from a few days before. Spring? What is that? Something in a mattress?

    off topic as usual but this article by Clarice is a must read

    “In 1963, long after the conclusion of World War II Selassie said: “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.
    As memorable and iconic as that speech was, the League failed to create effective sanctions and only six nations members refused to recognize Italy’s occupation.
    While the rest of the world may not think a nuclear Iran would threaten them it certainly does, and I, therefore, wish Bibi much better luck at persuading Congress and this country of this than Selassie was about allowing evil to triumph at the League of Nations.”

    Am I alone? I find Scott Walker very sexy. Not in a want to have sex with him sexy sexy in the way he is alluring. The bald patch and the off the rack clothes add to it. I wish my sister would date such a guy. He strikes me as the kind of guy who would bring civility to the yearly abomination that is Thanksgiving dinner in my home. Centered genuine. I find that sexy.

    • swanspirit says:

      That is how I feel about Ted Cruz. He is the smartest man in the room wherever he is. Thus he is the sexiest man in the room – wherever that room is. I ❤ Ted Cruz.

      One of the quietest, most shy, but truly brilliant young 13 year olds I ever taught was just beside himself over one of the prettiest girls in the class. She wasn’t hurtful or rude to him. She just didn’t even see him. He was totally under her radar. It was getting so pitiful to watch I made up an excuse to keep him after school one day. We had “the talk” about how guys (and girls for that matter) have to wait until they grow up a bit before smart becomes sexy. I told him about all of the guys who were nerdy in middle school and high school, but who became very popular with women in college. About 12 years later I was standing in line at the local ice cream shop when I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was him. He had added tall and very nice looking, if not handsome, to his list of attributes. He told me he had just returned from his honeymoon and asked him if I remembered his bride. Of course, I did. 😉 If only the country could grow up and recognize how sexy smart can be like she did.

    Explain or voxplain this to me
    Eight plus years ago I was asked to pick up a little girl from day care. She was wee she saw me a smile spread across her face and those fat arms were around my neck. I did not return to NYC and she never went back to evil day care.
    I am a self absorbed asshole but little brat got under my ski .. Instead of eating X at the White Party I was wiping shit.
    No regrets. I fight with pup all day long. Every day. We bicker but she makes good decisions. I am blessed think about it how many great gay uncles get to share in a wonderful promising life. Her mother is a cutter and her father is when not in jail really stupid. Like profoundly stupid. He wanted to try out for the Pittsburgh Steelers although he has never played football.
    I got baby girl a smart phone for Valentine’s Day. She is 8 the phone is in my name. He is only allowed to call the house phone. He had her call him so he could get the number then he called her eight times. Simple fuck the phone is in my name of course he denied ever calling’ Court order reads all dialogue between them has to be on house phone. He is such a puke he gotvher number,by deciet. Phone is in my name. I pay the bill I blocked him. He is threatening to sue.He has no grounds but I am going to have to pay an attorney to respond. She wants me to sue for all legal costs. He is so dumb he put it all on Facebook. Suicide all the time. They are keeping me from my baby crazy. MY attorney wantsc t o bury him. I wanted to lef it gobut he is crossing a line with my phone. He downlaed Gone Girl. I trust my baby girl she wants a song I buy. Never have I sai dad no. She knows my ATM pass code. She has no need to steal from me.
    28 year old man ordering a movie then blaming it on a kid. SICK SICK SICK.
    How pathetic to steal 3.99 and then to think you cannot get caught. Joke. Not sure at this point what isvtaking place with the police but I I am filing charges. Poor kid disadvantaged felt the need to place a gun against another persons head. FUCK OFF I grew up real poor n o t Hollywood poor. OUTHOUSE carpenter Ants. No phone no Tv . I do not rob people because I think I need better sneakers.
    I wear my history proudly now not so much when I was 18 at Purdue. What a testament to America I was born to kids dirt poor. We had a bucket that you made pooh in on cold nights. We used newspaper as toilet paper. We had a TV it just didn’t work. My mom would make us make up stories. I would march on my clothes in the bathtub and then iron them dry. Twenty years ago i was ashamed but now I am so proud. I went to Purdue, Temple, and Hunter. I have had tremendous opputunities. I think a lot of that is being squashed by liberals. I am 48 and I remember guys beating the shit out ofvme and pissing on my face because I looked or walked funny. I own that night I kicked in a basement window. And cried myself to sleep. Awful that a 16 year old would ever endure that.BUT it does not make me an eternal victim. Maybe I pass on a little strength. I cannot undo that night but I don’t have to let it cc own me. Begging for other people tovsee your pain makes me sick. HYPOCRIT am I ? Sure.

    Jhadi John derangement syndrome:
    Nothing to do with Islam, he was driven to “bad” behavior by the evil “system”

    “LONDON — Newly published emails suggest the man who became known as “Jihadi John” had suicidal thoughts before leaving Britain for Syria.

    In an email exchange with Britain’s the Mail on Sunday newspaper five years ago, he talked of taking too many sleeping pills and sleeping forever as a way to get away from British security service scrutiny. Mohammed Emwazi told a journalist at the newspaper in an email that he felt like a “dead man walking.”

    Today I like Google. Spent the morning out and about and got home and missed my smartphone. Drat! Laptop with location program is broken. Google Device Manager on my slow tablet located it (within 50 meters) at first place I’d been IN LESS THAN 10 SECONDS. By enlarging Google Map view could identity the room it was in, and where it was in the room. Drove there, had someone open up and unpile some books and there it was! Scary!

    I just joined CPAC, here http://conservative.org/membership/ and to get on their mailing list (and I’m sure the donation begging lists for all the candidates, sigh). I really want to go next year, if it’s still held at The National Habor. Just a quickie Amtrak ride north, and they provide shuttles from DC’s Union Station. As a political junkie, it would be my ComicCon 😀 And if I haven’t been banned by then, I’d want The Crawdad Hole on my credentials badge 😉

    In the courthouse I had to call my mothers phone because she set it down. Phone rang loudly but the guy who had it in his pocket tried to deny it. Tragic but funny. Was a basic smartphone. The knid they give you for free with a data plan. He wasn’t smart enough to turn it off and he was in the courthouse as a character witness in another trial. Family Court is a very scary place. Closest I can come to describing it is an afternoon showing of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo at the dollar theater replete with babies in arm. Seriously who takes a toddler to an R rated film with a brutal rape scene and how do they sneak in a bucket of KFC and mashed potatoes. Booze as well. Summer afternoons at the dollar theater are twisted.

    Just a reminder I spent 800 dollars this month at Amazon a portal here is not you begging fir money. I am going to spend it regardless why not get a kick back. Make it Lily’s Christmas fund. The 180 I spent on a bread machine is still 180 through a portal. It costs me nothing. My info is secure. I wish you would consider I am buying my mom a new chair for Her computer for Mother’s Day on Tuesaday. I am terrible I’lk give i t to her Thursday. I start giving out Christmas presents in July. Waiting is not my strong suit. I found an original Harry Potter lunch boxI turned it into an Easter basket with real straw, a kelly green hoodie shamrock earings and lime green socks. Two holidays in one. She got her Easter basket in January. I even had a banner.

      Licensed Harry Potter stuff is crazy expensive. Tyke wanted a Hermione watch. The only one one I could find was 1600 dollars.She got a swatch. I thought it was funny when I bought it. I made her listen to Duran Duran when I gave it to her but it seems swatch is making a huge comeback. Everyone has a phone now so watches are just adornment I beat the rush got her a plain white face with a fat hand and a skinny hand . Came with 5 different shades of pale purple (lilac, lavender and three others) product is no longer available and the cheapest watch is 50. I spent 35 and nothing on swatch website offers inter changeable bands. I have a swatch t shirt from 1982 Good lord i am old enough to be retro. I have all this stuff because I am lazy. Put it in a box or a bag and shove it in a corner for 30 years. I meant to donatei even washed and folded but that is were it ended. I have parachute pants and a can of spam. Spam. 30 year old pork shoulder. My mom sent it in a care packagewhen I was at Purdue. It has a little key taped to the side to open it. Spam scares me but my dad loves it. So gross when it comes out of the can. I showed him the can from 1984 and he wanted to eat it. I tried to explain it was an artifact.. He was not buying. I will never yield my meat product. It is a Talisman. I also have a can of pork’n beans and something callled devil’s spread from the same package. Funny I hated that package but I never threw it away. I wanted to be goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes thley were cans of pork’n beans. I would beat the shit out of 17 year old me if I met him now. My parents are rock stars. Every Saturday they take brat to see her father at a court appointed venue. They sit and wait for two hours then they take to CLO classes and wait four hours while she sings and dances. My parents will not take money from me. I pay for all the classes. Costs me about 500 a month that is for Tae kwon do, jazz, hip hop, ballet, voice, acting, swim and piano oh and gymnastics. I pay no rent. I have my own kitchen but I steal thier food all the time. I pay for brat’s SAturday classes. Very cheap 600 a semester for four classes. I spend another hundred dollars a month buying Subway gift cards sothey will eat while she is in class. I have to buy gift cards because cash they would spend on the baby.
      I am so sick of the straight white male bashing. My dad has COPD he is 74. He coaches little league girl’s softball. Court costs drained a ton of money. He is 74 and he went back to workas a driver for the railroad. My parents upset the apple cart by getting full custody. Great grandparents do not win. All about protecting her. Her grandfather my sister’s ex was Allegheney Counties most wanted. He has been crying suicide since 1982. Please kill yourself or go away. Pup is. 8 he is her grandfatger. Not one time has he ever called her. He shows up at my doior asking to borrow money. I hate the fuckj he punched my sister but he is my nephew andmy nieces father. I hate him but I was willing to get him help.
      My nephew drowned in 1987 mysister was pregnant and her husband was high. He was four and he fell’ into a swimming pool.
      My sister came to me and said I needed to go tie bathroom and I saw my babies head. I was 17. I was clueless. Defying all rational thought my mother returned from a trip to Sea World in Ohio. My mother a week out of community college delivered. A primie.
      Sod off you pukes that diminish straight white men. I am gay and I am sick of this nonsense.

    To thoroughly beat a dead horse I just bought a lazy susan spice rack from Amazon. No portal. Cost to me is zero. I start every day with this blog. Bunch of smart asses. You post honestly and it means the world to me. THE catastrophe of 2008 had me banging my head against the wall. The deification of obama scared me i had never read blogs until 2008. PUMA stuff started out great t hen morphed into something man hating. I think Hillary is a piece of shit. She had the power to stop Obama and instead she cosigned it all. I hate twitter. Annoys me but when Matty Iglasios blocked you I folloed him. I write him very pathetic sonnets . .
    I am a very dark person. I am always poised for a fight.i am vociferous against common core even though my baby has straight A’s. I create a stink at school board meetings about crap lunches. Shay is a vegan she packs a lunch. Bitch on school board told me I was racist. WtF? I pack her lunch but I am racist because I am not contributing to the common good. There is one black child in her grade. Her grandmother is a teacher at the local Catholic school. If i went school lunch they by law would have to accommodate her vegan diet. Would cost more money than 2.80 . Yet somehow I am depriving less fortunate kids of a meal. Sod off.i pack a lunch to feed my charge I am noy making chocholate milk in a Harry Potter thermos to deprive any kid of anything. Pup out grows clothes before she can wear. I give it all to a woman who gives it away because it is too much. Everyone i know buys her shit. A Vera Wang flower girl dress i do not need. Shoes my god does she have shoes. Hundreds of pairs. My friends think it is cute. Stupid they only fit for 6 months. Last year I bought her a sarong for the pool. 20 bucksmy friend Courtney bought her ten high end. Stupidan 8 year old does not need japanese hand crafted silk.
    Anyhow Iove this blog. Afew days ago I was watching Jeopardy with my parents and a commercial came on that used Kenny Roger’s Through the Years. I am a cold bastard(for real my teen parents were not wed ) i am of the disposition that you buck up. Low tolerance for sentimental shite. Song was playing and I saw them look at each other. I melted. My mom is the only person I have ever met with a didactic memory. My parents are my heroes.
    A little girl was thrown away 8 years ago. I ran into her by a gorgeous mistake. She is vibrant and promising. My parents created the man I am that stepped into his grand nieces life. Without them i could not be here for her

    This blog through the years has allowed me a respite. I am a better gay great uncle because i have been afforded the opportunity to express and think. I respect very few but I genuflect to this blog.
