"A lot of these traditions what you'll find when you research all of this stuff they date back back literally thousands of years. And the brilliance of the early Christians was to convert. You know, you'll get the atheist Crouching does this brute? This just proves that it has nothing to do with Jesus knew told Pagan traditions? Yes. Dummies. The early Christians were brilliant in that they used the existing peg and traditions and work them into their celebrations of Jesus Christ in order to convert the Roman world, the ancient world, the Germanic tribes and the Britannic tribes and all of that, as Christianity spread through Europe and then through the You know, the near East this well throughout the Roman world. They were doing this in an effort to make it easier for people to convert. And wouldn't you know it within just a couple of 100 years after the death and resurrection of Christ? The Roman Empire is Christian. How did that happen so quickly? Because of the early Christians, making it easy for the people who worship the ancient Roman gods to say, OK, the gift giving that they do a Christmas time. This is just like what we do at the celebration of the Feast of the Gods. Saturn Saturnalia. It's just it's all adapted is actually brilliant. Early Christianity is just a fascinating topic. But you don't want to hear about that. Right now. You want to hear about how Wisconsin's election was neither free nor fair in a big reason for That are the clerks in Milwaukee and Dane County, Scott McDonald and George Christiansen, respectively. You might have heard me talking about these two up, folks. I'm just going to come out and say it. I don't believe that there's any way either of these two political hacks. Should be serving in any capacity in the state of Wisconsin. S O. If you're in Milwaukee County if you're in Dane County Start organizing for a way to remove them from office because their performance was absolutely shameful. Going back. At least a year. Doing everything they could to grease the skids for Joe Biden's victory. Don't get me started on the Wisconsin Elections Commission. I'll start with McDonnell and Christiansen. And believe me, the Wisconsin Elections commission needs complete. Revamping overhauling. Yes, I know. We just got rid of the Government Accountability Board replaced it with this commission. It's the same people to the exact same people in the exact same corruption. The only thing the Legislature did was succeeding, getting rid of quite possibly the most corrupt man ever to work in Wisconsin elections Kevin Kennedy. And I would actually defy him to disprove me on that. What? Why? Kevin? Was there a file marked opposition research. And it included private emails from Republicans like Leo Book. Mere. Why was that file in your office? Exactly? So McDonald and Christiansen tell hundreds of thousands of people to claim themselves as indefinitely confined because of the Corona virus outbreak. There's no legal basis for this. Roughly 70,000 people. Usually the number is between 50 and 60,000. In 2019. As the population gets older, the baby boomers start tol, you know? Age and move into nursing homes, Retirement communities that sort of thing There were about 70 to 79,000 people last year who claimed indefinite confinement because of age, infirmity or physical disability. They simply couldn't leave their homes very easily and go out and vote in person Absentee or on election day. After the clerks issued their illegal guidance in March to say everybody should be indefinitely confined. That number ballooned to more than 200,000 people. Between the spring election after the Wisconsin Supreme Court said no. This is totally illegal advice. If you do this, and you're not actually indefinitely confined. You are likely committing election fraud and you shouldn't do this. It basically rebuked McDonnell and Christiansen, but the damage was done after the spring election ahead of the November election. An additional 50,000. People said they were indefinitely confined 250,000. People. The numbers are absolutely staggering. Tens of thousands of people in Milwaukee and Dane counties said there indefinitely confined And how about this? 15,000 voters in Dane County. And 31,000 in Milwaukee County claimed indefinite confinement. But had no photo ID on file with their municipal clerk..

"Lucky 26 at WTMJ certified? Yes, for certain. That's the lingering question. We are now a month from the November election. President Trump buying a legal fight here and was taxing where Governor Tony Evers in the State Election Commission certified Joe Biden's win Monday. Joining US life Marquette University political science Professor Paul No. Let He's on the first Midwest Bank hotline on W. Chantry. Thanks for joining us, Sir. So the Trump campaign says We could see a lawsuit, maybe even by days. And what are they going to claim? Do you think? What proof do they have of what they're gonna claim? And what chance does it have of actually getting state traction? Yeah, So even though these results have been certified the lawsuits they're still coming, And so I think the next couple lawsuits are going to challenge various procedures that were used in Places like Dane County and others as well where clerks have been filling in missing registration information or rather information that was allowed and has been allowed over the last Several elections for voters who didn't put it in there. Uh, kind of in the areas where you're where you're supposed to on the ballot. All of that, though, is pretty un controversial again. It's been happening over the last several election cycles. There's also challenges to the very use of drop boxes. Which many voters cast their ballots that way as well. So in other words, there's a lot of procedures that have been used in the last several election cycles that the Trump campaign. Others allied with the campaign are Are bringing these challenges to the courts. These roll absentee ballots we're talking about here. Yes, That's right. Well, the Trump organization's record so far in court is not very good. They're like one in almost 50 at this point, and some of the, uh, judgments by the judges have been just scathing. Yeah, And that includes Republican appointed judges. There was a three judge panel in Pennsylvania. That really just had absolutely scathing, uh, really attack on. These lawsuits saying, You know, courts require evidence if we're going toe Look at these cases and rule in your favor, and you haven't brought anything speaking to the Trump campaign, and so Republican and Democratic judges, the like it's been largely the same result. The Trump campaign has Has lost in Lost very, You know, decisively, Marquette University political science Professor Paul No lead is live on the first Midwest Bank hotline that WTMJ as I understand it, Professor. We already have two lawsuits that have been filed by voters in Wisconsin. They want the Supreme Court to rule that the Legislature should decide how Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes get. Cash later this month in the electoral College. This'll is taking us to places in the Constitution that we haven't been to before where we've actually had. People want to intervene in this arcane and usually very forgotten about process. It was such a formality for all these years, and now all of a sudden we're starting to see where this is something that people can actually approach and mess with it if they are so inclined. That's right. And you know, the Constitution doesn't say a whole heck of a lot about this. So there's other laws that were previously very obscure. Like the Electoral Count Act, for instance, that was passed in the late 19th century that no one ever thought about before. But now is getting a lot more attention because of all of this. That's exactly right. I mean, this is opened up. I think you know, I don't think I should say that. The bottom line is that 2020. There's gonna be a lot of lawsuits just like they haven't gone anywhere. I don't think these are going to go anywhere either. But it does open up the door for future uses of these technicalities, you know, potentially even to overturn the will of the voters. There is some real concern that this is setting a precedent that could be used in the future. Isn't there a danger to Paul? That? Wanting to throw out all of these absentee ballots are couldn't that just discouraged GOP voters as well? I mean, when that annoy them to think that my Bella got tossed him Well, that's the irony with all of this is that in your typical election cycle, absentee voters tend to hilt Republican. More So you know, it tends to be older voters who use absentee valid ballots, who in recent years have favored The Republican Party. So this may be an effort to disqualify absentee 1000 make absentee voting more difficulty, but in the end that might actually end up hurting Republicans and future election cycle. Touching back on the electoral college and in this whole approach ability that we talked about the previous question. Do you think this so maybe give any impetus to changing the way we vote period and maybe abolishing the Electoral college? Now that we see the holes in the system, the lack of the constitutional clarity? Maybe we just go with the straight popular vote. Well, that would be very difficult because in all likelihood, it's going to require a amendment to the Constitution, and that's going to be really difficult to do even more, so I think in our highly polarized Partisan era Right now, you know when the electoral college or really in any institution benefits one party over the other, at least for right now. And it's gonna be really hard to get any agreement on that. So I think the things that will change in the future. I think some of the used by vote by mail, for instance. Um, you know that really expanded during this pandemic. I think that may be here to stay. But the electoral college writ large. That's going to take a lot longer to try to get rid of market university political science Professor Paul No lead. I'm always always feel like I learned something every time we have you on.

Trump campaign transfers $3 million to Wisconsin for recount
"After the two thousand sixteen presidential election green party candidate. Jill stein spent three point five million dollars on a statewide recount in wisconsin which then increased donald trump's total by one hundred thirty one votes. Donald trump called that recount a scam and called on voters to accept the results of the election today. The trump campaign wired three million dollars to the wisconsin election commission to pay for a recount of ballots. In just two of the state's counties the two most democratic counties milwaukee county and dane county joe biden beat donald trump in those two counties by a total of three hundred sixty four thousand two hundred ninety eight votes and joe biden. Beat donald trump in the state of wisconsin by twenty thousand five hundred sixty five votes today. George christianson and scott mcdonnell the clerks for milwaukee and dane counties. Said this about recounts. I'm not surprised that they selected dean and counties they certainly didn't select them for a regularities they sunk to them because they're democratic strongholds. Of course a so frustrating. You know we were trained georgia and i trained for a year and a half or more for this kind of this information from the kremlin That's what we were trying to figure out. We're gonna try to mitigate that information on it out a lot of these bo- never thought it would be coming from from ourselves from from within the united states joining us. Now is wisconsin attorney general. Josh kaul general call. Can you tell us what you expect. In this recount process and whether it will lead to any possible of election litigation trying to overturn the results. Well i the recount itself is virtually certain to confirm what we know. Which is that. Joe biden scott's by about twenty thousand votes as you mentioned before we have recount for years ago and the change in net votes for the candidates about one hundred and thirty one votes. We haven't after twenty eleven states court races. Well and kind. Statewide recounts are in the hundreds. Nothing even approaching twenty thousand boats and the trump campaign does seem to be a little confused about how this process works because in re competition they raised a variety of legal claims but the time for legal claims relating to lose the election is well before the election. There's even a doctrine that says you can't our plans to close to election because you need to have certainty about rules are now bring those arguments. After voting. his happened after ballots have been cast after about twenty thousand more. Wisconsin voted for. Joe biden voted for donald trump. It's too late for those kinds of challenges. So will this delay the certification of results in wisconsin. It shouldn't recount needs to be done by december first and that's the deadline for certifying results. So absence some sort of order or something else that interferes with process moving forward certification will have to happen on december first so it sounds like the trump campaign believes that this is not just counting votes. But it's some kind of evidentiary discovery of some sort in which they might at the end of the process. End up with a legal claim. Is that even possible. If all we're doing is counting votes. That's what they're suggesting you know. But that's not how the rejoin process works as you said a recount is about recounting the votes. It's about confirming that. The numbers were accurate. They may very well. File a legal challenge as the recounts going on or at the end of it but any kind of like that is certain to fail. We've seen the trump campaign's success in court post-election and they keep losing case after case in the reason is because their claims have no merit and if they were challenging staunton I'm confident that it would be swiftly rejected courts so attorney general. Call knowing everything you know about this The vote count as it is the recount process as it will work. Wisconsin's history with recounts the likely on numerical changes as a result of recount Would you say tonight that. We know who the winner of the state of wisconsin is. Yeah there's no question about who's won the state of wisconsin. Donald trump is basically the equivalent position. Somebody who bought lottery tickets but he's Ticket after the lottery has happened. It's it's over and we know who has won this election.

"There was an element of that. Think the reason Walker lost in 2018 to Tony Evers was, I think In part, it was It was Republican complacency. It was Democrats. It didn't matter whether it was Tony Evers, or whoever could have been any name on the ballot. It was Democrats, particularly Democrats in in Dane County, who just they hated Donald Trump. And they wanted to send the quote unquote message against Trump. And so they couldn't vote against Trump in 2018. So what they did is they ran, and they voted against Walker in 2018, and by voting against Walker. He ended up having to vote for Tony Evers. I again? I go back to this note, though, saying I think, she recalls and recalls have been used by the left and the right. I think the recall statute and I've been making this argument for a long time. I think they really need to take a hard look at it. I think it ends up getting Miss used Now People are texting me. I'll sign the petition. You know, where do I have to go? And I I I understand that people are going to sign the petition. Keep in mind, though. The consequences of this is that you essentially allow unlimited financing unlimited fundraising. Bye, Evers and by Evers and Mandela Barnes while this thing is going on, Jeff somebody saying Why looks to me like this is payback. Look at what the Democrats did to trump trying to impeach him. Evers needs to go well. Get this isn't offensive. Tony Evers is more of the fence of the process. They need 670,000 signatures. I think that's a really, really tough get. Maybe if Christina's right if there's an army of people that are out there, and they're motivated, and people are getting 1000 signatures in a couple days, maybe I'll be wrong and maybe they'll have 670,000 people's signatures in a couple weeks. I think that's a tough get. More importantly, I think from a process perspective, I think recalls are overused and candidly. I continue to believe that I think people who Don't like Tony Evers would be better off like setting their sights on 2022 an extent you want to be politically motivated right now, Lord knows there's a lot of stuff. You can concentrate your time on between Now and November. This is Jeff Wagner. It's AH Bucks playoff.
Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus
"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the

"Beautiful be careful what you wish for after the November elections governor Walker lost. But we still the governor until early January when Tony Evert took over Republicans control the Senate and the assembly, and if you were a call they met in an extraordinary session where they passed various pieces of legislation which inhibited the power of the incoming attorney general and of the incoming governor. If you will recall, if you were listening to my program at the time, I argued against some of this legislation because I just not that I oppose the legislation per se. I just thought it was kind of bad policy that I mean elections have consequences, and I thought it was kind of bad policy. Did you got a new incoming governor for the outgoing? And governor to sign this legislation and the lame duck session to do it. It never crossed my mind because I don't believe that. This is the case that it was illegal to meet in this extrordinary session. My objection was I just think it's bad for public policy. Lawmakers have been using these extraordinary sessions for at least well for almost thirty years. It goes it goes back to nine thousand nine hundred and over that thirty year period in these extrordinary sessions, they've passed all sorts of legislation legislation on child sex predators. Laws regarding prenatal, substance abuse, the authority for the financing for the Milwaukee Bucks arena over three thousand pages of laws have been passed in these extraordinary sessions. Now most times it's not going to be controversial because there's not going to be a switch in the legislature. It's not like an outgoing Republican governor an incoming democrat. So again, my section was public policy. It wasn't legal because again, this has been a procedure which has been used for. Over thirty years going on forty years, actually. Well, what happened is you had a couple liberal special interest groups that didn't like what they did didn't like the fact that you had this legislation that was passed. So they went to court found a liberal, Dane county judge, and this is one of the reasons why a week from tomorrow, it's so important for people to go out and vote for judge Brian Hagedorn who is the conservative choice. He's getting clobbered as far as spending from these liberal special interest groups, but but it's important because you have these people that they file lawsuits, Dane county, the Dane county judges which were elected by Dane county voters are much more liberal than the rest of the state to law as I say frequently is an art it's not a science the people get elected to the bench. They bring their own sort of biases and preconceptions to the way they view things. And that's why you have every time the legislature passes, something and the left doesn't like it. They run the Dane county. Courts, they find judges which will toss it out. And ultimately, it goes to the supreme court at least for the last several years. The supreme court is rained in the excesses of the very liberal, Dane county judges. Well, anyhow, you have these special interest groups that challenge this practice 'cause they don't like what happened in December. But by challenging this practice, what they are essentially doing is challenging the practice that has been used for like, I say going back to nineteen eighty they find a very liberal state court judge pointed by Jim Doyle, who's been involved in a couple other would I would argue incorrect decisions over the last several years and on Friday. I was on vacation. I just kind of scratching my head on Friday. He strikes down the law. He strikes down some of the actions that the legislature took during this lame duck session. Centrally taking I think with all due respect to the judge the bizarre. Bizarre approach that the legislature didn't have the thority to meet in this extraordinary session. Now, here's where I say be careful what you wish for because if if this ruling is upheld, it's not just and then what happens is. So the judge says no you don't have the authority to do this. So all these appointments that that governor Walker made in the legislature confirmed Tony Evert immediately comes in and says, you people don't have jobs, you're gone. All right. If if what the judge ruled was correct now, I don't think he is again, I think this is again, one of these sort of knee jerk liberal rules that you get because it appeals to some of the folks in Dane county. But if this ruling is correct that the legislature didn't have the authority to meet in extraordinary session, this at least in my opinion, doesn't just apply to whatever appointments were made in December it applies to every law that has been. Passed over the last thirty to forty years, and if this ruling by this liberal, Dane county, judge his name is Richard niece. If he's if his ruling is upheld. Mark my words, you are going to see challenges to thousands of laws which have been passed in exactly the same process. You're going to have people running into court saying, hey, we were convicted under this particular law. Well, the legislature didn't have the authority to do this because they did it in extrordinary session. You know in two thousand six let me out of prison overturn this whatever. Now, I don't know how much chaos this has the potential to cause. But for people who might have been applauding. Oh, this is a great way. You know, we can stick it to governor Walker all this is super, oh, this is great. We can stick it to those Republicans in the legislature, be careful what you wish for because when these judges make these rulings there is a precedential value. It doesn't just apply to the case before you. So I understand maybe a lot of people to levers, the attorney general patting themselves on the back saying, okay? This is great. We can put our people in instead of being saddled with the people that Scott Walker wanted to have the end we can Pat ourselves on the back. Isn't this great, Dane county? Judge did this. If this ruling is in fact upheld though, I don't know we have opened the doors for people to challenge thirty or forty years worth of law. 'cause I don't know what the full scope of this could be but from the perspective of the state attorney general district attorneys private attorneys. It's has the potential to really have opened Pandora's box. So be careful what you wish for now. I don't know if this rulings automatically going to be upheld, my gut senses. It's not right. The judges is wrong in this particular judge has been determined to be wrong by higher courts on multiple occasions in the past. But this is another indication of of what happens if idiological the balance of power on the supreme court swings. And there's an election a week from tomorrow all the conventional wisdom says the liberal and her name is Lisa Neubauer associated with the democrat party, the conventional wisdom is she spent a lot more money. She's got all these special interest groups that are funneling all this money in and they're trying to. Label her opponent, Brian Hagedorn is this religious extremists. Because I don't know he subscribes certain religions have certain teachings. Well, they're trying to say, oh, this is dangerous etcetera etcetera conventional wisdom says Neubauer is going to win big. I don't know if that's the case at all. It's going to be a low turnout election. It depends. If people recognize how important this race is end up getting out and voting for Hagedorn. I don't know if that's going to happen or not like, I say all the experts say, loosen Neubauer. She's got all the special interest money. She's going to win in a walk. Don't know if that's going to happen. But I will tell you if you are concerned about keeping particularly these the Dane County Circuit Court bench. And this is where all the challenges get filed. If you're concerned about keeping them under control. What you need is you need a conservative ideological state supreme court and that comes with electing people like Brian Hagedorn. Will that happen? Don't know. But this is decision. On Friday, which goes at least potentially goes well beyond as far as the initial ruling. Yeah. Who cares about in particular? Appointees, but I care about what it means for all the other laws had been passed over the last thirty five years a lot of laws that we're not gonna wanna see overturned, and I don't know. I don't want to single Dane county judge making that determination. So.
