Kashkari's model on business climate: Scott Walker

Scott Walker looks to gain votes by attacking jobless aid and food stamp applicants

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is in trouble in his re-election campaign, so he's going back to a strategy that's served him well: divide and conquer. Walker's new plan involves targeting some of Wisconsin's most vulnerable by requiring drug tests for unemployment insurance and food stamp applicants , while using the fact that that's illegal to pick a fight with the federal government: Few details were included on the new proposals, but advocates for the needy said the drug testing proposal for jobless and food stamp benefits would violate federal law - a complication that killed a similar proposal promoted by Republican lawmakers in 2011.

US Chamber Attack on Wife of Walker Prosecutor Falls Apart

The investigation into Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is led by a Republican special prosecutor, was unanimously approved by Wisconsin's nonpartisan Government Accountability Board, and includes the participation of elected county District Attorneys from both political parties. But according to an outlet bankrolled by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the motivation for the "John Doe" probe can be traced back to a "weeping" teacher's union member married to Milwaukee County's District Attorney, John Chisholm.

Why Republicans Should Never Play Nice with Democrats

Democrats routinely deride Republicans as extremists bent on coarsening the discourse. In January 2014, in the same interview in which he infamously claimed that ISIS was a "jayvee" team, President Obama blamed conservative media for polarizing the country: The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I'm not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I'm somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things we've put in place worked better than people might think.

Wisconsin Politi-"fact" blows it on GOP budget deficit

I'm really getting tired of having to correct the Journal-Sentinel's Wisconsin Politi-"fact", but apparently I still have to, based on two awful analyses that seem to indicate that the corporate owners of the J-S have given orders to skew their ratings to favor the Wisconsin GOP as much as possible. "Wisconsin does not have a deficit," Darling said in a news release, which was issued with GOP Rep. John Nygren of Marinette.

UWM's new freshwater sciences building debuts

No sooner did the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee ceremoniously open its new $53 million water sciences campus on Saturday - debuting a facility at the heart of the metro region's dream of becoming a global hub of water technology - than UWM's leaders began to tout their next set of ambitions. Topping the new UWM wish list is a $20 million replacement for its main research vessel, the Neeskay, which was built in 1953 for the U.S. Navy and looks more like a tugboat than a floating laboratory.

Utah governor eyes more appearances on Fox News

Gov. Gary Herbert met with Fox News Channel executives in New York City on Thursday as he looks to join the ranks of Republican colleagues like Chris Christie of New Jersey and Scott Walker of Wisconsin whose regular network appearances increase their national exposure and connect them with more supporters. While Christie and Walker are considered possible 2016 presidential candidates, Herbert's spokesman said the governor's motivation is to promote Utah, not to prepare a run for higher office.
