Tammy Baldwin has failed our veterans

Written by

To the editor,
Liberal media outlets are soft-pedaling the way Tammy Baldwin attempted to cover up the scandal at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Tomah. The Tomah Veterans Hospital was over-prescribing opioids to veterans, resulting in injury and death to veterans.

Don’t punish lawful gun owners after Vegas

Written by

To the editor,
Let’s look at the Las Vegas shooting. What law could we have passed to stop this? Not a one; but if we forget about the shooter and restrict rights on law-abiding citizens, everything will be fine?

Good things are happening in D.C.

Written by

To the editor,
In today’s Bizarro World of politics, guests have only to pronounce, “Trump is crazy!” to get airtime on national TV. Meanwhile, while recalcitrant Dems in the Senate slow the appointment process (Republicans gave former President Barack Obama his appointments pretty darn quick), good things are still happening in D.C. You won’t hear it covered on mainstream media, however.

Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency director, has ended the EPA’s practice of “guilty until proven innocent” against farmers and ranchers. Coal-fired electric plants will not be driven out of business, raising everyone’s electricity costs and putting coal miners out of work. The EPA is moving to end the “Waters of the US” rule extending the reach of the federal government over small waterways.

With Republicans seemingly powerless to remove the yoke of Obamacare from our necks (36 percent to 50 percent increases in premiums in Wisconsin markets), President Donald Trump has issued an executive order overturning Obama’s unconstitutional order of payment to insurers. No, the poor will not be deprived of health care.

Trump’s refusal to recertify the abysmal Iran “agreement,” whereby Iran may continue to build its nuclear arsenal, refusing to allow inspectors onto army bases and providing its own soil samples to the United Nations nuclear regulatory agency (can you believe it?), is heartening. Trump has asked Congress to reconsider sanctions against Iran.

For a clear look at our national security, reserve by Oct. 25 on Eventbrite the Oct. 28 Machine Shed Rockford breakfast featuring Phil Haney (author “See Something, Say Nothing”) and James Simpson (“The Red-Green Axis”).
