Baraboo woman charged with threats to a law enforcement officer after 3rd OWI arrest in town of Clearfield

Baraboo woman allegedly went on a vulgarity-filled rant while threatening a law enforcement officer after being arrested for her third operating while intoxicated offense when she was found sleeping drunk behind the wheel of her vehicle in the town of Clearfield.

Bridgett McDonald, 32, of Baraboo is charged with felony threat to a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor operating a motor vehicle while under the influence, third offense. If convicted of the felony charge she faces up to six years in prison or a fine of up to $10,000, or both.

.     .     .     .     .

Morris transported McDonald to the Juneau County Jail. During the transport McDonald repeated threats, vulgarities and insults aimed at Morris.

McDonald stated that her car was not going anywhere and she would get it back in the morning. She said of Morris “I guarantee you still ugly, and I guarantee your momma still hates you.” She said, using vulgar language, that she does not come to Mauston because of “imbredded (expletive)” and “Yo’ momma (expletive) yo’ brother, that’s what the problem is.”

McDonald said she understood Morris because “You (people) have must got no life outside this sorry-ass, goofy-ass (expletive) outside goofy-ass (expletive) woods type of (expletive) you live in. You live in the woods like you (expletive) bears or something. Goofy (expletive).”

Discussing the towing of her car, McDonald asked Morris if it gave her “brownie points” and said “Wait ‘till I see you in the streets. Wait ‘til I see your (expletive) ass in the restaurant, ho. I swear to God, I’m gonna stomp the (expletive) out you stupid ass… you’re lucky I don’t come out in this woods.”

McDonald stated she did not care Morris is a police officer, saying “You ain’t a police officer every day. Remember that when I see you in the streets,” and “You ain’t gonna be able to charge me with beating a police officer.” Following several other expletives and threats she said “You gonna get shot in the (expletive) forehead, (expletive).”

McDonald made several further references to “beating” Morris “in the streets,” and again commented about her relatives and inbreeding. Once arriving at the jail McDonald continued to threaten Morris in front of other officers.

McDonald refused to submit to an evidentiary blood test. A warrant was issued and a blood draw performed.

McDonald is scheduled for a plea hearing Feb. 17 at the Juneau County Justice Center.

Baseball legend Hank Aaron, who began and ended his big-league career in Milwaukee, dies at 86

Major League Baseball and its longtime fans have been reeling for months as a lengthy list of Hall of Fame legends passed away, but the biggest blow of all came Friday.

The great Henry Aaron, who began and ended his big-league career in Milwaukee and was known as "Hammerin' Hank" for his successful pursuit of Babe Ruth's cherished home run record, died early Friday in his sleep at age 86. 

Former Milwaukee Brewers owner and baseball commissioner Bud Selig, who knew Aaron for 63 years and counted him among his closest friends, said he received news of Aaron's death from a longtime assistant of the baseball great. 

"I'm absolutely heartbroken, heartsick," Selig said. "This is so devastating. I know some people may quarrel with it but I've always said he was the greatest player of our generation. But he was a better human being. I'm so sad. 

"When you think back to what he accomplished on the field, he was an even greater man off it. He was the same nice, wonderfully decent human being that he was when I first met him in 1958."

Cult: Government Is Now The New Religion?

From ZeroHedge:

Authored by Mac Slavo via,

A new magazine cover of the Jacobin is striking a nerve after it appears that the magazine is saying the government is now god and our religion, to be worshipped. It sure begs the age-old question: who do you serve?

If we are ever to be free, we have to remove our consent. That goes for those who worshipped Trump as the messiah as well (and there were plenty.)  We should have never allowed ourselves to see each other as slaves to the ruling class, submitting to democracy (which is mob rule) and letting others have power over anyone else for any reason. Our inability to take the moral high ground has led to us this point in history. Government is now your god. Like it or not.

Describing Trump supporters as a cult has become a trope among his Democratic critics. Which seems ironic, considering how the very same crowd in the past four years tended to invest emotionally in whoever they hoped would end Trump’s presidency. Special Counsel Robert Muller probably received the lion’s share of the prayers, though figures like ex-FBI director James Comey or even Trump’s fixer-turned-critic Michael Cohen basked in some limelight. –RT

Here’s the cover of the magazine in its entirety for you to have a look at:

Biden’s larger-than-life, bare-chested figure is shown surrounded by ‘holy spirits’ of Twitter and ‘saints’. The latter include kneeling Democrat leaders in the US Congress, Dr. Anthony Fauci, fawning journalists, and manager-class devotees eagerly consuming the ‘holy scripture’ from what is probably the latest Barack Obama memoir. The former president himself is shown as a six-winged seraphim bracketed by the likewise angelic Hillary and Bill Clinton, with the trio gazing benignly from the heavens. A crowd of mask-wearing suburban laymen on Earth celebrates Biden’s ascension. A pair of Reaper drones complete the picture, providing a clear hint for the doubtful that the image should be taken with a grain of salt.-RT

It is way past time to figure out that this is the plan.  One world government, worshipped under the one world religion where the very few control and enslave the many.  Trump obviously didn’t do anything he promised, such as drain the swamp, and people are still worshipping him as some sort of messiah as well.  Stop allowing others to rule over you and making exceptions if one has a different letter behind his name.

Democracy is mob rule. If voting mattered, they wouldn’t let us do it. Government is slavery. Taxation is theft. Time to wake up and take the moral approach that no one should be a master and no one should be a slave regardless of whether it’s called “government” or not.

Hopefully, this is the wake-up call people need and the push toward a liberated humanity, truly free from their chains.

Wisconsin’s vaccine distribution — like most everything else in Wisconsin in recent years — has sparked a partisan blame game.

Republicans have criticized the rollout as slow and uncoordinated, asserting Democratic Gov. Tony Evers doesn’t have a sufficient plan. Evers has countered that he’s doing the best he can with the available supply, claiming Vice President Mike Pence had promised vaccines from a federal reserve that didn’t actually exist.

Republican Rebecca Kleefisch, a potential 2022 gubernatorial candidate, said Evers is leading an effort that ranks among the worst in the region.

Two Kenosha Unified staffers mourn the loss of spouses after apparently getting COVID in the classroom

From JSOnline:

Less than two weeks after returning to the classroom in early December, Jeanne Holmes-Hoffman, a 20-year veteran of the Kenosha Unified School District, believes she contracted COVID-19 in the classroom and passed it on to both her husband and her mother. 

Holmes-Hoffman's husband Jim spent 19 days in the hospital before dying Jan. 3 and her mother, who was living with the couple, suffered a coronavirus-related stroke and was hospitalized.  

“Nothing can bring Jim Hoffman back. The void caused by missing his presence is felt every moment by me and my family,” Holmes-Hoffman said in a statement read to the Kenosha Unified School Board on Jan. 6. “This did not need to happen to my husband.” 

The Kenosha school district is grappling with how to balance the safety of its staff and their families with the fears of parents that their children will fall behind if classes are online. Holmes-Hoffman is one of two staff members who say they got coronavirus in the classroom and passed the virus on to their spouses who died from it.

The second staffer has not been identified. 

The school board voted to go virtual from Nov. 30 to Jan. 8, however, because Holmes-Hoffman works with special education students, which required in-person education, she returned to the classroom in December.

Biden signs orders retooling US COVID-19 respobse

US shocked after National Guardsmen kicked out of Capitol Building and forced to lodge at parking lot after inauguration

 The US Capitol Police are in hot water again, after ordering National Guardsmen protecting the Capitol in Washington, DC to leave and find accommodation elsewhere. The decision was overturned hours later amid a public outcry.

Almost 26,000 National Guard troops were flown and bussed to the US capital from all around the country after the January 6 riot. The unprecedented military surge made Washington, DC look like a US-occupied foreign city such as Fallujah, according to some commenters. Joe Biden’s inauguration day came and passed without any public disturbances.

The special security event announced by the US Secret Service for the inauguration ceremony ended at noon on Thursday. Somebody in the US Capitol Police then seemingly decided it was high time for National Guard troops to vacate the Capitol Building, where they had been quartered for two weeks.

Hundreds of Guardsmen were suddenly expelled and forced to look for a new place to sleep – including in the nearby congressional parking garages. The troops there suffered from shortages of restrooms and sockets to charge devices, plus exhaust fumes, overcrowding, and other issues. Understandably, the eviction left many of them with a feeling of humiliation and betrayal.

“It’s f**ked up because it just shows how politicians really feel about the National Guard,” one of them told Task & Purpose. “Leaving our families for the last two weeks to come down here … it’s certainly important and historic, but the day after inauguration you kick us literally to the curb? Come on, man.”

“The next time DC calls, we will let it go to voicemail,” a soldier interviewed by Military Times joked.

Images of soldiers napping on the ground in a parking lot unleashed a wave of public fury. Lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle offered the Guardsmen their offices as lodging.

Congressman Madison Cawthorn visited the troops with some pizzas and an assurance that no soldier will sleep on a garage floor as long as he has something to say about it.

Other politicians seized the opportunity for some partisan bickering as they blamed the other side for the mistreatment of the troops.

Hours after the story was first broken by Politico – and seemingly with quite a few phone calls involved – the Capitol Police apologized to the Guardsmen and allowed them back into the Capitol Building.

“Because of the MASSIVE backlash over this, we are now being allowed back into the Senate building,” a soldier told Military Times. “We’re going to make a big show of marching back into the building.”

It remains unclear why the troops were kicked out from the Capitol in the first place, the incident has exposed the Capitol Police to fresh criticism. The force is already under fire due its failure to anticipate the Capitol riot and dispatch enough troops to prevent Donald Trump’s supporters from breaking into the national legislature. Chief Steven Sund resigned after the January 6 fiasco.

The scandal comes as the National Guard pulls back its troops from Washington following the inauguration surge. Thousands have already left, though the Guard expects it may take up to 10 days to complete the drawdown. Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that his state’s troops will be returning home on Thursday night, though it was not clear if the order was scheduled or a response to the garage situation.


‘QAnon Congresswoman’ files articles of impeachment against US President Joe Biden as ‘unfit & threat to national security’

A Republican member of the US House of Representatives has filed articles of impeachment against newly inaugurated President Joe Biden, underscoring how the whole process has become politically weaponized.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia), elected to her first term in November, accused Biden of being “unfit to hold the office” and a “lengthy and disturbing” pattern of “abuse of power” while he was Barack Obama’s vice president, citing his threats to the Ukrainian government and his son Hunter Biden’s shady business deals overseas among the examples.

In a statement on Thursday, Greene said Biden has shown he would do “whatever it takes” to bail out his son and “line his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.”

“President Biden residing in the White House is a threat to national security and he must be immediately impeached,” she added. In filing the articles, the Georgia congresswoman kept the promise she made a week ago, to impeach Biden on his first full day in office.

The motion is extremely unlikely to succeed. Republicans are a minority in the House of Representatives, and Greene herself hardly speaks for the party as a whole. She has also been under relentless media attack for months as a conspiracy theorist, from ‘QAnon’ to calling the mass shootings in Sandy Hook and Parkland “false flags.”

Pharmacist charged in attempt to ruin COVID-19 vaccine

 MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin pharmacist accused of trying to defrost and spoil dozens of vials of COVID-19 vaccine was charged Tuesday with attempted misdemeanor property damage, and prosecutors warned more serious charges could follow if tests show the doses were ruined.

Police arrested 46-year-old Steven Brandenburg on Dec. 31 as part of an investigation into how 57 vials of the Moderna vaccine were left for hours outside a refrigerator at Advocate Aurora Health in Grafton, a Milwaukee suburb. The vials contained enough vaccine to inoculate more than 500 people.

Detectives wrote in court documents that Brandenburg is an admitted conspiracy theorist who believed the vaccine would mutate recipients' DNA. Experts have said there's no truth to the claims that COVID-19 vaccines can genetically modify humans.

According to a criminal complaint, Brandenburg told a detective that he removed the vials from the refrigerator for three hours on Dec. 24 then replaced them. The next day he took the vials out of the refrigerator again. This time he left them out for nine hours, thinking the vaccine would be rendered ineffective if it wasn't refrigerated for 12 hours. But he said a pharmacy technician found the vials and put them back in the refrigerator.

A Moderna doctor told investigators that the vaccine could remain viable at room temperature for 24 hours, the complaint said. Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol said during Brandenburg's initial court appearance Tuesday that he is having the doses tested to determine their efficacy and more serious charges could be coming if Brandenburg's actions made the vaccine doses ineffective.

Update (2021ET): While the mainstream media and the federal government drummed up imminent threats of right-wing violence during the presidential inauguration at state capitol buildings, nothing happened that was significant in reporting. 

Meanwhile, after the Biden inauguration, leftist groups, such as Antifa, are causing chaos in multiple cities. 

* * *

Update (2034ET): Antifa is marching in multiple cities. The latest is Seattle, according to AntifaWatch

"Some property damage, likely ENDD, they are headed Northbound," AntifaWatch said, quoting a police scanner.

Chaos appears to be unfolding. 

Antifa is burning an American flag. 

Antifa is on the move in Seattle's downtown district. 

"An Amazon Go store is graffitied and window smashed in downtown Seattle," tweeted Brendan Gutenschwager

Seattle Police confirm multiple businesses were vandalized by Antifa.

Update (2018ET): Portland's KATU News says Portland Police are arresting protesters at the "J-20 march."

* * *

A group of violent demonstrators gathered in Southeast Portland on Wednesday afternoon, hours after President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were sworn in at the US Capitol. The leftist anti-government group appeared displeased with the new administration as they attacked the building of the Democratic Party of Oregon.

Local news KGW reports the group of at least 100 people, dressed in all black, marched through Portland. 

KGW's Mike Benner posted a series of tweets showing the chaos unfolding in Portland as there was "significant damage at the Democratic Party of Oregon bldg at 9th & Everett." 

Videos Benners posted shows group members, dressed in all black, are likely radical leftist, Antifa. 

Despite President Biden pleading for national unity in his Inaugural Address today, demonstrators in Portland held up signs that read:

"We are ungovernable" and "A new world from the ashes." 

Conservative journalist Andy Ngo tweeted "shocking footage of Antifa" smashing the Democratic Party of Oregon building. So much for unity... 

Another local news station, KATU, said the protest in Portland this afternoon is called the "J20 protest."

"We Don't Want Biden - We Want Revenge!" another banner read. 

Already, there have been reports that some of the demonstrators have attacked police officers. 

"The group of roughly 100 people started marching north shortly after 3 p.m. and reached the Democratic Party of Oregon's Portland headquarters shortly before 4 p.m.," said KATU.

"Members of this group have been observed damaging the building. Anyone involved in criminal behavior, including vandalism and graffittiing is subject to arrest or citation," Portland Police Bureau tweeted.

More demonstrations are planned for this evening, according to police. 

Besides Portland, so-called Antifa mobs were seen burning American flags outside Colorado's Capitol building. The Sun describes the group as a "militant left-wing-group." 

Reports keep pouring in as Antifa groups assemble in other cities. Twitter user Jason Whitman said an Antifa march was spotted at the Ohio Capitol building this afternoon. 

With reports of leftist anti-government groups, or possibly Antifa as some claim, are on a path of destruction in multiple cities following the Biden inauguration. There are reports Antifa is planning to attack Trump supporters this week. 

The militant leftist group seeks to dismantle the federal government; it comes at the president calls for national unity.
