"Thought not just talk it is that Dan O'Donnell show We're gonna take a break from inaugural coverage for just a second cover, something that needs to be Last night as expected, Governor Tony Evers extended yet again Wisconsin's public health emergency. To be clear. He has no constitutional authority to do this. The Wisconsin Supreme Court heard back in November, a challenge to this aural arguments in a case challenging Governor Rivers authority to keep issuing new public health emergencies over the same Public health emergency. The state constitution is clearly set up to avoid this very thing. Governor Evers when he declares a state of emergency or a public health emergency, essentially conduce you within reason what he wants. He doesn't need legislative approval. And the reason we have public health emergencies and states of emergencies is for precisely the sort of thing that we had back in March. Nobody quite knew the severity of the Corona virus. Nobody knew How deadly it was. Nobody knew exactly how quickly or how easily it could spread to an entire community. So to give the governor time to set up the infrastructure to sort of combat this The Constitution gives him the power to declare a public health emergency for 60 days. However. After that 60 days. The state Legislature has to vote on whether or not to continue to give the governor emergency powers. Instead what the state Legislature did was to get a more definitive statement. And this is I'm assuming why they're not immediately voting by joint resolution now to shut down the public health emergency. What I assume they're doing is to try to get the state Supreme Court to weigh in to say no. This is a clear violation of the Wisconsin Constitution. Now it's been clear The last couple of times that Evers has been extending this public health emergency is that he's doing absolutely nothing with his authority other than extending his stupid mask mandate. That's literally it. So Given the fact that most businesses are requiring masks to be worn inside anyway, it's sort of a moot point, and nobody's actually as supposedly required by some of these city requirements. Wearing their masks outside. It's just not happening. And in northern Wisconsin in rural areas of the state, there's just no compliance with the mask mandate whatsoever. In fact, I always grocery shopping. Last night Woman was walking around the store with no mask on. Nobody seemed to mind. Nobody said a thing. And in fact, I pulled my mask down myself in solidarity with her. But the point here is the constitutional issue. That Governor Evers cannot take Corona virus out of the equation and imagine this There is a bad tornado that hits Milwaukee. In order to clean up in order to facilitate state resource is being sent to Milwaukee in order to Alleviate the pain caused by this tornado. Governor Evers declares a state of emergency. The system is in place to provide aid to survivors and rebuild Milwaukee. The Governor Rivers. Keeps issuing new states of emergency. Another 60 days. Then another Then another Until he's governed almost an entire year under a state of emergency for the exact same emergency. Clearly the state Constitution did not contemplate this. And clearly the provisions in both state law and the state constitution require the Legislature to sign off on this. Now the legislature could snap its fingers and with a joint resolution immediately shut down the public health emergency. It's not because it's waiting for a ruling from the state Supreme Court. And of course, all eyes are then on alleged conservative Brian Hag adorn the court is ostensibly a 43 majority. But Hagedorn keeps inventing ways decide with liberals through his tortured and Completely ignorant interpretation of constitutional law. And I say that advisedly the man I am shocked. At his misinterpretations of the most basic precepts of constitutional law. It continually shocks me how badly he has mangled these rulings. So we'll see. And in this order if the Supreme Court decides against Evers, which is probably a 50 50 shot right now, the Legislature does need to shut this down and to take a stand against unconstitutional governance. There's no excuse. Oh, well, we've got an election coming up. Oh, you know, we can't take off the seniors who are terrified of coronavirus by going against Evers because they feel safe with this mask mandate. No, it's time to stand up for constitutional governance, and it's time to stand against her incompetence. Just when you thought the Evers administration couldn't fail any worse than the way it botched the unemployment distribution. It is currently botching Corona virus vaccine distribution. According to the state's own statistics, updated every day, and I'm using yesterday's stats because these are the most recent available. The state of Wisconsin has on Lee ordered 60.6% of covert 19 vaccines that the federal government allotted it. Remember late last week when Governor Evers went on a tirade. Oh, he was so upset because the federal government hasn't provided Wisconsin with enough covert vaccine. That's a lie. Wisconsin has been allocated 779,800 doses of coed vaccine. Wisconsin is only ordered 473,300 It's only administered 31.8% of the doses that it's been allocated. In other words, Wisconsin is failing mightily in ordering, receiving and then distributing the Corona virus vaccine. In fact, according to Beckers Hospital review Wisconsin ranks 30th out of 50 states in vaccine distribution. That's abysmal. And governor. Avery's is once again trying to shift the blame, just as he did on his failures with administering unemployment assistance onto the federal government onto somebody not named Tony Evers or the Evers administration. Remember, it took a couple of months before Evers did tacitly admit the blame for the failures on unemployment by getting rid of Caleb Frost men. The Department of Workforce Development secretary who had time to write emails in the wake of George Floyd's death to all of his staff, just lengthy e mails talking about how terrible racism Woz while completely ignoring his responsibility.

"If you know how the sausage is made, you might not want to eat the sausage. That's how politics is. That sums it up in a nutshell. And of course, I've been reporting on politics longer than I want to admit. And some of that goes in. Now. Some of that leads to some really good legislation that has certainly moved. Wisconsin forward has led to some conservative principles. The forwarding of conservative principles that we all pretty much agree on. But some of it's not very good at all. And when you see it as you report on it, it makes you worry. You get a better context of what's happening and why things were being done. But I know not everybody is privy to that. And what it looks like is as we talked about before, um elected officials not Seizing the moment, not living up to the moment not leading in the moment. The difference. Madden 2020. I agree with you, by the way, but the big difference. This year's politics affected all of us. Our bank accounts are kids inability to be in school, our ability to pay our bills. It's one thing of politician accident say Wassup. Aw, greases the wheel little bit to get a highway from point A to Point B. That's politics. Always has been. Always will. I don't like it. But what we experience we all experienced in this country and again here in Wisconsin is different. And that's why those elected officials better realize that I'm not talking the pitchforks. They're storming the castle. That's not where I'm at some are. But the longer this goes on this inability to listen to the constituents listen to the voters. I think they're going to get worse for Republicans and their base before it gets better. Well, you know, I've talked about it before, and I know we've talked about it with the panel, and I know our great hosts J. Weber and Vicki McKenna and Mark Belling and Dan O'Donnell have talked about it repeatedly in that is over the last several months. We have had, if not a disenfranchising of conservatives in this state, a disaffection And that's going to be very difficult to rebuild. In 2021. It's going to be a impossible Problem T o to deal with in 2022 if it's still remains the disaffection of the conservative grassroots and so some things they're going to have to happen in 2021 that changes that top of the list. And I know there are some Republican lawmakers who are very dedicated to this. I've talked to him now We'll see where they go from here. But election reform whether Tony Evers Vito's everything that they send his way that has to be top of the list, and that has to be the cause, or you're gonna lose that the grassroots support no doubt about it. I have heard from conservatives who are wanting to and and they have every intention. I'm told to continue to provide tax relief and continue to cut the size of government even with Tony Evers big spending, Tony At the helm. They better do that They better focus on those basic principle, things and finally There were basic principle things that they forgot about or didn't want to deal with, And that's something we talked about. Moments ago. Freedom of religion, freedom to assemble the First Amendment. The Fourth Amendment the fifth a minute, the 14th amendment, the Constitution for the love of God, We have lost it. Even in a pandemic. You know, Rebecca, Um Bradley Justice for the Wisconsin Supreme Court has said it so eloquently. You cannot give up the Constitution. You cannot forsake the Constitution. Even in a health crisis. Liberties have to live on. If not, you don't have the system of government that you've relied on for 240. Plus years. Brian Hagedorn may disagree with that assessment a little bit, but that's another topic for another day, Mack. It'll hear from Empower Wisconsin news talk 11 30. W Y. You said you mentioned 2022. I mean, we're always in the political cycle. It's my belief that Governor Tony Evers will not run for re election. What say you? Well, I was told, first and foremost look out for this in 2022, but I was told Alec Baldwin's wife plans to run for governor of Wisconsin. But then again, she may have disqualified herself as a native of Spain. He's got two shows later tonight. My friends New Year's Eve. I'm sorry, I'm sure I'm sorry. I I couldn't help but taking a jab it that no. That doesn't matter. If he's from Spain. She's not from Spain. I lost it big difference. She's from Boston. Exactly. I see a had a governor, I I'm like you. I see a tired governor. I saw a guy who was tired. Before he got in. This is a guy who, as I've often said, is an empty vessel. The left The same thing that Joe Biden is nationally. Tony Evers is in the state of Wisconsin. The left and all of the activist group have poured in their idea of what Wisconsin is into Tony Evers, and he has rejected none of it. He has shown absolutely no leadership, particularly when it comes to the nut balls. Who want to take away public safety in places like Milwaukee and Madison. For the love of God. If you can't get right on that the basic fundamentals of government public safety then I don't know what s O I C, a fatigue governor who is tired of wrestling around with the opposition in the Republican Party. We've heard a lot about the lesser Mandela is Vicki likes to call him Mandela Barnes We've heard about you know, Donna calls um, man, deadbeat Barnes for not paying his fines and registrations. Rent? Yeah. Yup, That is absolutely right. So Week. Aiken definitely see Tony Evers saying one and done for me but trying to set the stage and then there will be a lot of squabbling going on because I see a lot of people not rallying around Mandela Barnes. I see a lot of people not rallying around Josh call who is the Jimmy, the ground hog of the attorney general's office, pops up every once in a while, sees a shadow and goes underneath for a long time. But yeah, and they're all kinds of leftist climbers out there. The list is too long to go into now, but the short answer is I see too much fatigue in this This old pale guy to think of another term, and he's just not a true believer. You know, he's a lifelong bureaucrat. He was in the right place at the right time. He won because his name was Tony Evers, not Scott Walker. While some people get into politics to to rise to the top to be governor or President Al Gore, I think would be a good example. I don't think Tony Evers is cut from that same cloth. And so you factor that with the likelihood of a Republican controlled assembly and Senate so much of an agenda wouldn't be able to get done anyway. As you mentioned Matt, he's had health issues in the past. This is his opportunity to retire, too, is now fattened state pension because is Governor Sally will be factored in and maybe play more pickleball of his wife. Yeah, no doubt there are things that he wants to accomplish, I think or at least he has to accomplish for the leftists who are backing him. You know, he wants this little mouse Little Red Book the You know the People's Committee to decide who's going to put together the boundaries for the legislative districts. That's a big thing. That's a critical thing for Tony Evers and the Democrats. Because they believe that's the only way they can win course. What they haven't considered it for a very long time still aren't considering is you have to put together some decent candidates that people would actually elect before you do that. There are some things he wants to accomplish, but I don't see Tony Evers stepping up. In 2022, saying, I'm ready for four more years of that. I think we'll get a pretty good sense in 2021 due to the state budget being proposed what his proposals are, If they're just way way out there in left evil, that'll be an indication that no, he's not thinking about running for re election. If it's a little more, even for the Democrats own standards contained. That might be a sign that he does, in fact, plan to face the voters again in 2022 mad, kiddo, You'll be back tomorrow. New Year's Day as you mentioned the panel. What good riddance 2020 myself, you, Jerry Baht. Benyon Gregory John, who is J..

Tony Evers WTMJ's by exploding speaks with diversity of North Carolina political science professor Jason Roberts who's been studying their legislature after passing a slimmer slate of bills back in two thousand sixteen it's been a very mixed bag. Most of the changes that the legislature attempted to make were heavily litigated by Cooper in the Democrats. And in most cases, they've actually been successful. Staving off those changes through state supreme court decisions with us legal challenges almost immediate. Yes. They were immediate followed up, and they tried to do more of this year through a ballot referenda that all living governors and came out opposed to including the former governor MacQuarie who had been lost in two thousand sixteen. I saw the story. I believe it was published on on FOX. Over the weekend. Same North Carolina's plan that was implemented is is somewhat of a blueprint and other states are taking he'd can we have it here in Wisconsin. Also in Michigan going through a similar issue. What was the precipice in North Carolina? How did this all come about? In the Republican legislature? Here is never hesitated to try to work any political advantage that they can find. Once Cooper won the election. They need it. We started hatching a plan for those and. A veto proof majority in the in the legislature up through the two thousand eighteen election. So they really just tried to restrict the governor on appointing boards, particularly elections board. And it was a role that right away. They're they're they're very politically efficacious have voting attitudes. Then changed since twenty sixteen come on. It did really inspire. A lot of people on the democratic side. You saw mostly in candidate entry passer years that the Democrats here have been somewhat depressed state, but then the twenty thousand election, they ran a candidate in every state house and state Senate election, and they flipped a lot. When the special session of the lame. Duck session was called back in two thousand sixteen was this on the forefront or were things done under a little bit more cloak and dagger, I would say it was much more cloak and dagger most of us had heard nothing of it until the day before they called a special session has there been a cost to the taxpayer? There has these special sessions are quite Hawksley does bring style. Pretty into the legislators. There was an example actually last fall when they put the ballot initiative on they didn't like the law. They had passed to describe how you would describe the initiative on the ballot and someone pointed this out, so they called a special session just to go back and change that make the estimated cost of that was greater than fifty thousand dollars. So it has been costly taking a step back and a five thousand feet above this issue. Not just North Carolina. But for someone who focuses their their life's work on this and their expertise like like, you have is this just kind of a different era of politics or was this has this kind of stuff been done in the past. It has been done in the past. But not recently, this is much more like eighteen fifties or eighteen ninety politics. If you will, you know, winner take all win at all means it's somewhat disturbing as a political scientist to see people not really want to respect the outcome of an election. You know, when you go and change the rules in between the election and the legislature coming in that rubs a lot of people the wrong way people who are looking down the road. In your experience in North Carolina. It's been going on for two years. What are we in for here in Wisconsin?
