'Welcome to the Hall of Fame': Former Packers safety LeRoy Butler earns NFL's highest honor

From JSOnline:

GREEN BAY - As LeRoy Butler was trying to rush along his son to take him to school in the morning a couple weeks ago, he heard a knock on the door so loud he thought it might be the police.

As he went to answer the knock he saw who was there and wondered what in the world Charles Woodson was doing at his house.

It wasn’t until Butler opened the door and saw a camera crew and maybe a 25-person delegation that he realized the dream of a lifetime had come true: He was going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“Roy Lee, welcome to the Hall of Fame,” said Woodson, a former Packers star who was elected to the Hall last year.

“Don’t play, don’t play,” Butler answered.

“Trust me, you’re in the Hall of Fame,” Woodson said.

And with that, Butler felt none of the cold even though he was standing on his South Milwaukee porch in his stocking feet on a January morning.

“I feel like I stepped outside my body and watched myself,” he said of the moment.

Butler was one of five modern-era candidates and eight total voted into the Hall in the 2022 class that was revealed on the NFL Honors Show on Thursday night. The others were modern-era players Tony Boselli, Sam Mills, Bryant Young and Richard Seymour, along with senior finalist Cliff Branch, coach finalist Dick Vermeil and contributor finalist Art McNally.

Butler was introduced at the Honors show by former teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Brett Favre.

"He was the first to leap in Lambeau and one of the fiercest to defend it," Favre said. "An all-decade safety and an All-Pro competitor, an all-time teammate, LeRoy Butler."

NFL MVP: Packers' Aaron Rodgers wins 4th

From Fox6Now:

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the NFL's 2021 MVP at the NFL Honors Thursday night, Feb. 10.

Rodgers has now won the award in back-to-back seasons and four times overall – the second most by one player in NFL history behind only Peyton Manning, who has won the award five times.

In 2021, Rodgers started 16 of 17 possible games for the Packers as they finished with the NFL's top record and clinched the NFC's top playoff seed. In those 16 games, Rodgers threw for 4,115 yards and 37 touchdowns to just four interceptions.

Rodgers led the NFL in touchdowns per pass attempt, interceptions per pass attempt and passer rating – a metric in which he also led the league for two of his previous three MVP seasons.

In addition to being named the NFL's MVP, Rodgers was named first-team All-Pro for the fourth time in his career and made his 10th Pro Bowl – a record among Packers players

The MVP caps a year dotted with public controversy and tumult for Rodgers.  

On April 29, 2021 – the opening night of the 2021 NFL draft – ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Rodgers had grown "disgruntled" with the Packers to the point that he would not return.

After much speculation of what would come next, Rodgers arrived in Green Bay for the start of training camp in July. The three-time MVP let it be known publicly that he wanted to have a voice in the decision-making process.

Rodgers became the center of a second media firestorm of the year when it became known that he had not received the COVID-19 vaccine, seeking alternative treatment options instead. His explanation for being "immunized," as he put it, instead of vaccinated against the coronavirus, drew flack. Though he defended his stance on not receiving the vaccine, he made comments that repeated debunked myths surrounding its use.

The Packers lost their lone playoff game to the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field, ending the season and starting the clock on another uncertain offseason for Rodgers.


Putin - The Master

 The Financial Times reported this week that Russian President Vladimir Putin told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, during an hours-long meeting in Moscow, that he would withdraw his troops from Belarus after the drills are completed. According to FT, Putin also said he would not take any new “military initiatives,” and the two leaders agreed to a “structured dialogue on collective security.”

Russian officials, however, have not made any public commitments to a timeline for withdrawal, and have said that France is not in a position to make deals with Russia without the go-ahead of Washington.

Open Letter to Canadian Truckers

 My name is Robert Malone, and I am a United States-based Physician and Scientist. 

We all stand on the shoulders of giants.  The simple truths are what matter most.  Honest words, spoken from the heart, can change the world.

We should not have politicized the public health response to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. 

And Justin Trudeau should have focused on managing the actual ground truth of COVID-19 instead of following the script provided to him by the leadership of the World Economic Forum.

I am a physician and a scientist now, and I am highly trained and experienced in developing vaccines and other medicines. 

But I have also been a carpenter and a farm hand, and I still work my farm. I drive a GMC dually diesel flatbed, a Kubota farm tractor, and can run a skidloader or drive a team of Percheron horses.  I have shown my Percheron foals at the Royal Winter Fair.  By the original meaning, I am a teamster.

I come to you with an open heart, committed to healing, bringing three simple words.

Integrity.  Dignity.  Community. 

These are three simple words that ring like bells in the heart of honest people.

The US military appears to be deliberately hiding the damage done by COVID-19 vaccines

Astonishing figures are coming to light about how extraordinarily damaging COVID-19 vaccines have proved to be in the ranks of the US armed forces.  According to testimony delivered by attorney Thomas Renz before a Senate panel two weeks ago, they include:

  • 279% SPIKE in Miscarriages
  • 487% SPIKE in Breast Cancer
  • 1048% SPIKE in the Nervous System
  • 155% SPIKE in Birth Defects
  • 350% SPIKE in Male Infertility
  • 369% SPIKE in Testicular Cancer
  • 2181% SPIKE in Hypertension
  • 664% SPIKE in Malignant Neoplasms
  • 680% SPIKE in Multiple Sclerosis
  • 551% SPIKE in Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • 468% SPIKE in Pulmonary Embolism
  • 302% SPIKE in Tachycardia
  • 452% SPIKE in Migraines
  • 471% SPIKE in Female Infertility
  • 437% SPIKE in Ovarian Dysfunction
  • 269% SPIKE in Myocardial infarction
  • 291% SPIKE in Bell’s palsy
  • 467% SPIKE in Pulmonary Embolism

A brief video of Mr. Renz's testimony, less than 5 minutes long, may be found here.  You can watch the entire panel here.  A three-page letter from Sen. Ron Johnson to the Secretary of Defense over the issue may be found here.

Legalizing marijuana in Wisconsin gains momentum

From Fox6Now:

The push to legalize marijuana in Wisconsin enjoys some bipartisan support, but backers of bills that would make it legal for either medical or recreational use say it won't happen this year.

Still, the top Democrat in the state Senate said Wednesday that Wisconsin is closer than it's ever been to loosening its marijuana laws. Every neighboring state has legalized marijuana to some degree.

"I never thought I was going to live to see the day, but we’re actually talking realistically about marijuana reform," Democratic Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley said at a meeting of the Wisconsin Counties Association.

There are bills from Democrats and Republicans that would legalize medical marijuana, from Democrats that would also legalize it for recreational use, and a bipartisan measure that would decriminalize the possession of marijuana.

The bills come after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers last year proposed legalizing marijuana in the state budget, a provision removed by Republicans who control the Legislature. But that hasn't stopped the conversation about having Wisconsin join the 37 states that have legalized medical marijuana and the 18 that have fully legalized it, including Illinois and Michigan. Wisconsin's other two neighbors, Iowa and Minnesota, allow medical marijuana.

Bewley said the bipartisan discussion about loosening Wisconsin's marijuana laws is a "celebration."

"We’re not going to get it passed this year, don’t get me wrong," she said. "But we’re actually talking about it in very realistic and concrete terms. The fact that we’re there, we were not there and we haven’t been there for years, but for some reason there’s daylight. That’s what we have to capitalize on."

The biggest impediment to loosening marijuana laws appears to be Republicans who control the state Senate. They have not shown a willingness to changing the law and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu has said that legalization should be tackled at the federal level, not by the states. Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has voiced support for medical marijuana.

Advocates changing Wisconsin's law are hoping to at least have a public hearing this year on a bill introduced by Republicans that would make medical marijuana legal.

"This is not a Republican issue and this is not a Democrat issue," she said when introducing her bill last month. "When you look at the map of states where medical marijuana is legal, you will see conservative states like Florida and South Dakota and more liberal states like California and New York offering a compassionate option for those who need relief. It is time to have the conversation ... in the state of Wisconsin."

Felzkowski introduced the same bill last session but it died without a hearing. She said the proposal was written in a limited way — it doesn't allow for smoking medical marijuana, for example — in order to gain support from Republican lawmakers. A competing Democratic medical marijuana bill that circulated this week would allow for smoking it.

Felzkowski said her goal this year is to get a hearing so that lawmakers can hear from the public.

"It’s a matter of getting the conversation started," she said at an online forum Tuesday hosted by Wisconsin Health News. "People on both sides of the aisle are in favor of it, people on both sides of the aisle are against it. We need to start the conversation, let the public weigh in on it and come out with the best piece of legislation in the end."

Lawmakers need to put their political party aside and talk with one another to reach agreement, said Democratic Sen. Melissa Agard, of Madison, the chief proponent of full legalization in Wisconsin.

"That is not happening at this point," she said.

Still, though, Agard is optimistic.

"It is important that we realize there have been more pieces of legislation introduced this session from a broader swatch of political affiliations than we have seen in Wisconsin," she said. "Clearly we are having a lot of opportunity for robust conversation in the building and that is exciting."

Legalization of marijuana isn't a matter of if it happens, but when and how, Agard said.

"To me, the devil is in the details," she said.

Electric city buses arrive in Racine, expected to be transporting riders this spring

RACINE, Wisc. — All nine electric buses have arrived in Racine on Tuesday and should be fully deployed and transporting riders this spring, Racine Mayor Cory Mason announced.

Officials say the RYDE Racine transit system is training their operators and technicians on the electric technology and testing the battery power of the new buses.

“I am proud of the fact that soon the City of Racine will have the largest electric bus fleet in Wisconsin,” said Mayor Cory Mason. “We are excited to have received the nine new electric buses and our transit employees are working diligently to prepare them for service. You may have already seen them driving around the City as we test their batteries. We’re benefiting the environment by moving away from polluting diesel, and we will be saving approximately $60,000 on fuel each year.”

The new electric buses were purchaed from Proterra. They can travel about 175 miles, which avoids the need for mid-route charging during the day, city officials say. Instead, the buses will charge at night.

According to a news release, it is estimated that the city of Racine will save 56,000 gallons of diesel fuel a year, which creates an annual financial savings of $60,000 for the city.

Be cautious of a scam circulating Wisconsin that pretends to be the DMV to get your personal information.

The Wisconsin DMV has said it received multiple reports of fraudulent text messages. These texts ask for identifying information or credit cards. This is known as smishing (SMS phishing).

Smishing Example
An example of a smishing text claiming to be from the DMV.

If you click on the link, it will direct you to a fake DMV website with spaces for you to fill out that information.

“Working with the Wisconsin DMV has never been easier, but customers always need to be vigilant online,” DMV Administrator Kristina Boardman said. “Don’t reply or call the number from unknown texts. And don’t be fooled by panicky wording in the message. To be sure, you can always start at, give us a call or drop us an email to confirm.”

The majority of all DMV related activities should be through a .gov website. Always check the end of the URL to make sure it's a legitimate website. Also, if the text message seems fake it probably is fake. Be on the lookout for awkward sentences and spelling mistakes too.

Kenosha anti-Semitic flyers suggest 'COVID related to Jews'

From Fox6Now:

Kenosha police are investigating anti-Semitic flyers passed out in Kenosha neighborhoods claiming COVID-19 is being facilitated by the Jewish community. 

Leaders at the Milwaukee Jewish Federation say the flyers instill fear and trauma within the community, which can lead to violence, but Kenosha residents the community is stronger than ever and they won't let that happen.

Kenosha police say the letters were found on two occasions in late 2021 and early 2022, placed on windshields on the city's southeast side. 

"That’s suggesting that the disease of COVID, and the spread and also the profit from vaccines related to COVID and all of the public health protocols are related to Jews, that Jews are somehow profiting from this," said Kaiyael Gardner Mishlove, Milwaukee Jewish Federation.

Other residents found them in mailboxes or on their doorstep.

"This is really concerning because these flyers were deliberately placed in plastic bags, weighted down with beans, so the intent to deliver this message was very intact," said Kaiyael Gardner Mishlove.

Leaders at the Milwaukee Jewish Federation are worried, with anti-Semitic incidents on the rise. They condemned the message.

While it's unclear why Kenosha was targeted. They believe it's part of a coordinated effort across the U.S. and said flyers were found in at least 11 states.

"We are concerned because Kenosha has experienced a level of unrest over the last couple of years, so this is the last thing that community needs," said Kaiyael Gardner Mishlove. "They need peace and quiet right now."

One Kenosha resident said there's no flyer or piece of paper that can tear the community apart, especially after what residents have been through.

"If there’s no facts behind it, with this community, you know, as it is now because of what we’ve been through, I don’t think that it will stand on any water," said Andrea Oliver.

Kenosha police are investigating, and the Milwaukee Jewish Federation is asking people to report the flyers to police.
