"Shot in the back seven times. In front of his Children. Let me be clear. This was not an accident. This wasn't bad Police work. This felt like some sort of vendetta being taken out on a member of our community. There was some sort of vendetta now, one year later. This is the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Bill Glauber and Ricardo Torres. This is their story on the retrospective from Kenosha. The 1st 34 paragraphs sound as though exactly what it was that Barnes was talking about was the actual narrative. What we know a year later is that Blake clearly resisted arrest. He was armed with a knife and he was attempting to kidnap his Children in a stolen SUV. This is the story. A year later, the wounds run deep. The problems remain unsolved, and the way forward for the community is as murky as fog rolling in off Lake Michigan. On an early evening in the middle of summer, August 23rd 2020, the staccato snaps of multiple gunshots echoed through a kid Ocean neighborhood and nothing Nothing would ever be the same. The city on the lake is still coming to grips with all that happened over three tumultuous summer days and nights that began when Jacob Blake was shot by a Kenosha police officer. The incident Captured. On video. What followed was civil unrest, destruction and more bloodshed, part of a tragic American summer in which the country came face to face with its stark divisions over race. And policing. That sounds as though All that happened after August. 23rd just never happened at all. The narrative is still that well. This was another example of America's racial reckoning. It was three nights of chaos. Essentially provoked by a lie. That lie was that Jacob Blake was unarmed. That Jacob Blake was trying to remove himself from the situation and that this officer just targeted Jacob Blake because of some sort of racist grunt. Remember this LeBron James even weighed in on this people get tired of him. We stay there, but.

"At the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Uh, posted this story about the state Democratic convention. Just put it up there for me. This is exactly what I'm talking about. This was catnip. To an obviously partisan journalists like Molly back. I'm assuming I didn't read The Associated Press account, but I'm sure it was somewhat similar. It's all about the conflict. Trump is calling out Republican legislative leaders by name now. President Trump Republicans responded by the way. Capping a said Mr President. I'm a big fan of yours. But you're just wrong on this one. We are investigating. We've got three former police officers overseen by now An attorney has been hired to oversee this election. They're looking into Look, folks. There was an audit of Dominion voting systems, okay, and it did find an error. But it was a benign error. It was one that just okay, These sorts of things happen. These sorts of issues were already investigated in Wisconsin. What was found and what the trump campaign actually very successful and very persuasively argued, Although the Wisconsin Supreme Court led by alleged conservative Brian Hagedorn used the doctrine of latches to essentially put on the issue and latches essentially means that well, they they didn't really they had a case. Okay, fine. They might have had a case, but they needed to bring this before the election, in other words, that the issue was already settled, so there's no real remedy and I don't necessary. Really disagree, because what the what the I do agree with, by the way, disagree with using latches they needed to issue a definitive ruling about all of the rules that were changed all of the laws that were changed shortly before the 2020 election. What obviously was being done at the state and the municipal level. In order to put the thumb on the scales in favor of Democrats. What I disagree with was the idea here that hundreds of thousands of votes I believe the total was like 100 9000 or something like that should be thrown out after these people were voting. In accordance with what their municipal courts. Municipal clerks were telling them what the Wisconsin Election Commission was telling them. So what I would posit would be that the Supreme Court needed to rule But it couldn't possibly disenfranchise. It couldn't possibly just throw out 109,000 votes. I mean, what do you think would happen if that was the precedent if the state Supreme Court Essentially nullified an election or even worse. Handed the election to the guy who got fewer votes. Month and a half later. What do you suppose every single liberal Supreme Court in every single liberal state would do every time? That's not a hypothetical by God. Democrats tried to it, a Republican congresswoman in Iowa won by about 20 votes or five votes or whatever it was Nancy Pelosi literally tried to undo the will of the people by not said sitting that congresswoman. It was only when this little plot was uncovered and there was widespread outrage. That it was abandoned. That Pelosi said. Okay, Okay, okay. We're finally going to see this woman. Instead of this effort to essentially nullify the whim, the will of the voters on what amounts to a partisan whim. Now imagine a state Supreme Court doing the exact same thing, however. The fraud that was uncovered. Wise. Essentially being committed by people who are in charge of the elections. This is far easier to find, but it's far more difficult to undo. Forensic audit, therefore, likely would not find enough votes. That I mean, you can do signature matching and all of this signature matching is rather difficult, though. Because When you sign something your signature does change. For example. Do you know how hard it is to go on eBay or Amazon and find authentic signed merchandise? I would advise very strongly never to do that. You would be shocked as you know, I'm a big fan of Hamilton. So is my family. So I got my brothers signed pictures of Lin Manuel Miranda and is Hamilton costume? I eventually went to a licensed dealer to make sure I was getting an actual autograph. Lin Manuel Miranda apparently has about 50 different signatures. But when you go and look at, as I did last November, December when you go and look at the actual signed Lin, Manuel Miranda merchandise and pictures and all of that, you'll notice that his signature does actually very dramatically. Because he's signing it very quickly. Better example for you and your personal life Do you ever have when you use your credit card? You have to sign the little digital box. I guarantee your signature looks nothing like it actually does. If you're anything like me half the time, I just make a little smiley face. In lieu of my signature. I mean, it's obviously going to be me. But the point is that the signature matching is not the panacea that you might think it is. Now. I'm not saying That this sort of forensic audit might not Result in in a finding, But here's the fundamental problem with all that. Governor Evers would veto and use every executive trick and tool. He has to stop anything. The Legislature orders. Right. It's actually sort of miraculous. The Department of Justice is not working to stop the Legislature's investigation that's going on right now. So President Trump Is indeed wrong to sort of lash out at the idea that Republicans aren't doing enough. In fact, Republicans in the Legislature just unveiled a sweeping series of bills that of course Evers is going to to reject there's been a proposal for a constitutional voter Integrity amendment. Which I think would would do wonders to eliminate the the authority that a governor would have to try to block any effort at election integrity. But there's been multiple investigations. We had a recount the the idea here. That Republicans aren't doing enough. Is, I'm sorry to say rooted in Trump's own ignorance about what's actually going on on the ground in Wisconsin. We will go to the phones. Let's start with Matt in Burlington, You're on the Dan O Donnell show. Hey, two quick points. I can't say that he's wrong because I don't know how many calls Robin Boss's office got now. This is outside the forensic audit. But the overall Robin Voss as a speaker, runs the ship for Wisconsin. They're in charge of the appointment of a few members of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, and I made nine phone calls to his office before democracy in the park even started doesn't have somebody to get down there and get on it. And under his watch asleep at the switch that went down to the to to 20,000 votes. Indian County that should not count who was the candidate that was on the ballot there, though. Who is the Republican candidate. Donald Trump. Okay. Did Donald Trump have a campaign in Wisconsin? Yes. Would it be fair to say that the Trump campaign, which would actually be the party to the suit was also asleep at the switch on that one. I asked about that. I understand. They reached out to Robin lost in the assembly to take care of that year with our Wisconsin legislatures, and they chose not to do that. No, they had attorneys who are at the ready. Nobody wanted to do that, because they didn't want to upset the apple cart. They wanted to look, there was there was a lot of confidence, I think On the part of Republic. I'm not absolving. Believe me, I'm not absolving boss or the Republican Party of Wisconsin of any blame. But let's just be clear. The Trump campaign had an army a veritable army of attorneys in every state, looking at this exact same thing, and You might recall the guy who was screaming..

"High potential potential for legality or delivering a serious bodily injury, even if he's bad at using it. A blind swipe with a knife at arm's reach, can disable an officer or kill them. So the people are just and then this happens all the time. They're ignoring the dynamic and the realities and the physicality of taking someone into custody. Those officers not only did nothing wrong They had very little choice is at the time they approached him, and at the time they use deadly force because of his actions. Also importantly, and this is never highlighted either by the people who want to turn this guy into a folk hero. He said. He was about to get into a car that wasn't his and drive off with Children in it. And that's not something you can allow him to have happen to remember. The warrant was for an accusation of sexual assault. Um, that have been made, and this is a guy and the person who called it in Was the person who was the victim of the sexual assault. So this is a guy who's about to get into a car and drive off with kids in it. I mean, that's you're not letting somebody who's got an open warrant. Felony warrant. Get into a car That isn't his with kids. I don't believe or hiss. On drive off what? What Officer would ever let that happen? Well, and let's apply a little hindsight for those officers. How do they know? Because they clearly didn't have time. How did they know that this that these Children were his if they were and what his intentions were Officers are entitled to look at a person's actions look at their response to their efforts to affect the lawful arrest and make reasonable, rational conclusion. And the reasonable, rational conclusion was he was either at the very least, if they were his Children going to drive away and cause a car chase because they have to take him into custody or two. He was about to commit a Carjacking in a kidnapping. Yeah, it was a violent felony. By the way, we're talking about attacks on officers here. This isn't gonna be one of those times where, you know you just let him go. You know, this is someone who actually would have would have caused a pursuit by officers in a vehicle. All right. So this is all about, you know, trying to figure out ways to make the cops the bad guys even though we had a very, very, very long Press conference by and Very apologetic D A wants to throw Kyle Rittenhouse in jail. But for some reason, you know, can't seem to find it in himself to actually file charges against Jacob Blake. Hold for assaulting the officer and for the felony the sexual assault felony on But the same time wants to somehow, you know, claim that the reason why he can't do it is because the law is so biased in the laws, So is so racist in the laws so rigged toe hurt young black men. You know when we go back and look at the situation there, people who defend Jacob Blake about not being charged by saying he's been punished enough because he's now paralyzed. How much of these officers been punished and they didn't break the law. The careers of probably ruined. Their lives have been threatened. Their families are in fear every time they leave the house to go to the grocery store, much less put on a uniform and the end result of this is if he had complied and be taken into custody. None of this would've happened. None of them. No. And now you've got the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel calling for the firing of the police officers. You know you have a.

Greg. They've been working on this for quite some time, and it looks like there's going to be big 10 football. Yeah, and I can only imagine there are big 10 presidents and athletic directors and certainly players who have watched the last two weeks play out. There's 25 games on Saturday's schedule here in week three. So you have the Big 10 wants to be part of the college football playoff. By the way, it's a major payday, right?

"But it still doesn't explain why he got behind him and then blasted him none of us. Makes a Lotta Sense. I'll tell you his you wanted to kill a guy. Then it makes sense that he waited because if he knew that he was going to get a weapon if that's what the guy had announced and that's allegedly what happened I don't know what the truth is. Right. So allegedly this cop had been informed at this man might be going for a gun or a knife in his car, which would mean that the cop if he's smart enough to know how the rules work once he touches the weapon then then blast him and get away with killing A. Guy. And we know that there are cops not all of them but there are some cops who are total psychopaths who absolutely got into that line of work. So they can kill people and that could be who with here and we know that there are people that want to take the easy way out when it comes to suicide and touching a weapon while in the presence of a police officer is a good way to get debt So I guess what I would say in this and this wasn't a good guy by any means. I just want to make that clear. The victim in this case has a rap sheet with sexual assault on it and things like that. So probably not a good guy I know I'm going to leave this one for. More. Information and I want to see I certainly want to find out what was what did he fall down on? Was it a gun? Was it a knife? Was it a semiautomatic rifle? Was it a shotgun what was in the front seat or whatever is it a copy of today's newspaper I don't know what it was. I didn't see that information I don't.

Sometimes you got to defend yourself against a lunatic and I'm not sure who's the lunatic in the circumstance. I wouldn't know well, they may both be lunatics. Okay. So again, not taking an I, don't like to pick sides in that story either. So that's what it has resulted in the the riots that are going on at at least in. Kenosha, right about now, any somebody gets shot. By a police officer, there's going to be protests and riots. The difference between right here is they're building on fire. I've heard that there have been multiple buildings I. Don't know if I heard it on the radio news today but the number thirty I think came through some house have been quite a few businesses. That have been burned again I don't understand protesters targeting innocent business people because it's easy to do over this. Well, apparently, not so much when somebody's got some armed guys out there protecting their business and that's where we come to believe the story out of in this case the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about Kyle Rittenhouse he is seventeen years old charged with shooting three people two of them fatally. During Kenosha protests, Tuesday night considered himself a militia member trying to protect life and property according to videos interviews in social media posts.

"Show as well last week the Milwaukee journal Sentinel inadvertently broke a big big story now of course it wasn't treated as such because the big story the journal Sentinel was that robin Voss may have said something slightly racist about immigrant families which he did but the bigger story with that governor Iverson was secretly recording a conversation that he had with legislative leaders robin Voss of the state assembly speaker the state assembly and Senate Majority Leader Scott fitzgerald this discussion took place the day after the Wisconsin Supreme Court on may thirteenth throughout governor YVR safer at home order both Boston fitz Gerald join my show last week to say they had no idea that they were being recorded in Wisconsin the law requires that at least one party to the conversation knows that there's being recording made of it it's what's known as a one party consent state in some states both parties to the conversation need to know that they're being recorded but in Wisconsin only one does the parties to the conversation that were announced were a lawyer for YVR is Ryan gnosis doing at Iverson chief of staff Maggie gal the only people who really spoke in the conversation were robin Voss Scott fitzgerald and governor Tony Iverson now when the journal Sentinel story hit of course the journal Sentinel which requested the audio recording not just all records of this conversation but in an email I've obtained from the journal Sentinel's Molly back to senator fitzgerald staff she request specifically audio recording now how did she know that there was an audio recording of that specific conversation well it's rather obvious she was tipped off because both bought Boston fitz Gerald told me last week that it was highly unusual for a recording of an audio recording of a conversation to be requested in fact both said that all of their years of the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds conversations they've had at the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of open records requests that they get they never before gotten a request for an audio recording the reason that politicians don't typically record conversations is the exact same reason that Tony soprano wouldn't want conversations recorded and why the mob always insisted on doing things in person so that there is no record so that nobody could possibly be listening and in order for there to be open and free negotiations in order for both sides of this give and take to be able to freely express themselves and actually get work done and the point of the conversation was ostensibly to plot a way forward for the state to get through the corona virus crisis without safer at home remaining in place in order for Boston fitz Gerald to feel comfortable talking with governor reverse to express themselves openly in order for governor YVR is to express himself openly there needs to be a certain level of trust they're obviously was not the purpose of recording this call was rather obviously to leak it to the media it hopes that both Boston fitz Gerald or one of the two you would say something that could be later used to embarrass them my strong belief is that what the attempt was was to get foster fitz Gerald to downplay the threat of re opening Wisconsin to say nothing's going to happen everything's gonna be fine or for them to say we have no plan we don't know we're just going to let the state re open then of course as either his team was constantly reminding us at the time there was going to be a massive spike in corona virus cases the only problem is that didn't happen in fact the percentage of positive tests has been steadily declining even since the state reopened there was no post re opening spike of course there was a slight uptick in cases but there hasn't been any sort of the wild west chaos that governor reverse went on MSNBC the night of the decision and promised it just didn't happen but suddenly the Iverson ministration is in a bit of a by because on may fifteenth Mali back was rather obviously tipped off my strong suspicion is that Maggie Dow tipped her off about the existence of this recording and said Hey you should really file an open records request for the audio of this record for the audio of this conversation so she did email dated may fifteenth I suspect she sent the exact same email or a variation thereof to bosses people into Iverson people as well she was clearly tipped off the email signed Molly back in Patrick Marley YVR spokespeople slash journal Sentinel reporters but I made that first part up but they were the ones who are reporting on the existence of this tape last week the request is still out there yep even though fox six reporter Amanda St Hilaire last year requested just a single weeks worth of emails from governor eaters this is about as easy an open records request as there is to fulfill as somebody who makes a decent number of open records request it's easy you just set date parameters in outlook or whatever it is and you you collect all the emails you send about it takes a grand total of maybe three minutes to do Iverson blocked that request I correct myself here either himself didn't even know that the request was being blocked because St Hilaire confronted him at an event and said Hey we requested your emails and your kind of blocking those why won't you let the public see your emails he said what are you talking about his staff was blocking the open records requests so then fox six narrowed the request to just a single day's worth of emails they still had to go to court they had to sue the administration in order to get just a single day's worth of emails but within a month an audio recording was released in other words somebody wanted that audio recording released somebody wanted it to go out into the public but oops Boston fitz Gerald didn't actually say anything that was embarrassing so they had to settle on this during the course of the conversation Voss said to Iverson Hey we might be seeing a spike because in my community minority or excuse me immigrant populations immigrant communities the way they live typically multi generations in the same household and where they work that makes them more prone to coronavirus infection in fact the same day that that tape was released this CDC concluded the exact same thing the reason that minorities were typically harder hit is because of what essentially amounts to their lifestyle they have more people in smaller living spaces and there's just it's it's common sense I mean this is logic one oh one here that if you're in closer quarters with greater people greater numbers of people the greater the chance that you have to potentially spread the coronavirus but this was portrayed as racist as Xena phobic in the splash headline was that Voss blames immigrants culture for the spread of coronavirus that was the best they had that was the best shot that the YVR said ministration working very obviously with the journal Sentinel's reporters that was the best thing they could do it landed with a thud their bomb shell fizzled so now naturally less than a week after it was made known that governor Iverson recorded this conversation that it's entirely likely that he's been recording far more conversations with legislative leaders in an effort to embarrass them by leaking said tapes.

"The ground somewhere around the world you can count on Meg Jones the outstanding reporter at the Milwaukee journal Sentinel to be they're bringing their stories back and my friend make joins us in the studio it's always so good to see you make it to see you John and found out that I know that you're back here things are good yes okay you've been to a rack for times you've been Afghanistan four times this was a trip to Ukraine which of our boys and girls over in Ukraine so there's a it was a group of a hundred and sixty four Wisconsin National Guard soldiers there from headquarters company that's based out of camp Douglas but he also brought in people from other other units it's skewed mostly senior NCOs and senior officers because what they're doing is they're at a combat training center in western Ukraine and their mentoring Ukrainian military trainers who are and basically helping troops therefore the only active war in Europe at the moment so you were there they were there on the day that the U. S. Senate acquitted the president in his impeachment trial that was related to what did or didn't happen in Ukraine what was that like well that's one of the main reasons why I wanted to go to Ukraine was because few people even heard of Ukraine or knew of Ukraine before the whole in each meant hearings that became part of you know of the of what was going on in America but here was a hundred and sixty four with cats SO guard troops that were kind of it at the heart of that because part of that three hundred ninety one million dollars that was at issue is being spent on this combat training center in western Ukraine and that's where all these troops are they're serving out a one year deployment their boots on the ground will be about nine or ten months or so but but you know I asked everybody that I was there with I've you see I wanted to know what they were doing what they were you know kind of they could explain what their their task was but I also asked him about the the impeachment and they're like you know we know what's going on in and we follow what's going on back at home but we're very busy work where we had our eyes we have to concentrate on what's going on here so it doesn't really affect us at all she so you nine eleven you said in the piece that you've been overseers eight times and I imagine every time you go across season you're with the troops you learn something a little bit different about yourself for about our men and women what did you learn this time with this trip to Ukraine well it's it's interesting because there were some of the people that I've spent time with in Ukraine I'd also been in bed with them in Iraq right back in the stands so you know you stay in the Wisconsin as a guard long enough you've probably been to Iraq you probably been to Afghanistan dependent on when you were in so there are some people that I I had Max and one of the stories I know the main story wanted to do was about just exactly what they were doing over there and I and I explain that but also you know rack it's been in the news a lot lately with the with the killing of a reunion general some stolen money and I knew that there was probably a number of a rack that ins that were in this group in Ukraine so that was a story that actually was appeared in today's paper and I just went up to folks that somebody known some I didn't know and just what is getting kind of their their reaction in kind of their thoughts on what's been going on in Iraq so but what every time that I get I'm embedded with the group from what's the what's Hanson National Guard Wisconsin reserves I'm always impressed with the hard work the resilience of their can do attitude it's just very refreshing spending time with them in another country so Major General Donald Dunbar who we know very well resigned under a cloud of controversy he saw these troops off when they headed to Ukraine he was their boss for a long time you were with them when that out what what is their reaction to handing out right well so so when that all kind of came down you know he he that the report came out in mid December about these horrible things that were going on in some of the some of the units and so he but I would see general Dunbar it pretty much every time I would go to a a going away ceremony or return home ceremony so I wanted to find out from the sea the troops in Ukraine because they would have been in Ukraine when all the stuff was breaking back home and the commander of the unit said folks were very surprised they were shocked but it was but also just like the impeachment they had to continue with going on with with their jobs as well too so that turned out to be a a separate story as well to just kind of the reaction and kind of you know what's it like for a unit when their top guy that could because he was the top soldier in in the Wisconsin as a guard what's it like when he has to leave under you know under cloudy circumstances and for the most part they had a they called it a town hall meeting the they all discussed it because a lot of them were our old our you know higher up people and in the troops that had served with channel Dunbar for a number of years so so it's it was difficult for them but but you know they're they just dealt with it make Jones without standing work from Ukraine you should check it.

but snitching on someone who's stealing your signs when you're out now another team and your team is facing them I mean I understand if he told his team some people think he never should have brought

Report: Private Security Firm Lost Hundreds Of Guns
"Businesses private homes and even nuclear power plants depend on private security firms to keep them safe but USA. Today in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found that one mm firm was not living up to its promise G. Four S. puts itself out there as securing your world and in some of these cases that we found on that did not happen reporter. Gina Barton was part of a team that examined g four s the journal Sentinel Found Company. Employees have lost guns that they used used to protect those sites. Not all security firms provide guards with guns but g four s does thousands of guns under a license from the Federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Baco firearms and explosives. Six hundred forty of those guns have vanished since two thousand nine and the paper found that some were later used in crimes there was garden Florida. Who's going on vacation in two thousand nine and he put the gun in a bag. Put it in a closet and left. When he got back a screen had been cut and the gun was gone and the police suspected there must have been a burglary. A few days after that gun was stolen. A couple of men rolled up on a house. Busted through the fence stabbed Amanda Death in the backyard and then they went into this shed. That was like a man came or a couple of young men. Were playing video games and shot both of them to death and the gun that was used used in that crime. The gun that was used in that crime was the very same gun that was stolen from the guards closet but no one knew it. We were able to put that together. Ten years later so g four s should be keeping close watch on their weapons. According to your reporting they have fallen down on that part of the job hundreds five times. You said the next part is they should be telling. ATF when a gun goes missing of the six hundred forty cases you've found. How often did they tell the. Atf they often when did tell the ATF. There were about half a dozen examples over the past ten years though when their war months. Let's weeks even years went by before they even noticed. Guns were missing. So if you don't know gone as missing can't tell the ATF. It's missing to their credit. They have said that they made some improvements in two thousand twelve and they have more improvements planned now. We talked to them a couple of weeks ago. And they said they're are going to be upgrading. Their computer system yet again so that people at corporate can keep an eye on all these field offices and the forty eight different states and they said that a lot of the I'm I am. The problem is employees are not following the policy. So what they've gotta figure out is how do they make their workers actually do what they're supposed to do what did the ATF. The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms have to say about your findings the ATF said that they could not comment on a specific instance. And that's one of the real problems that we've had in kind of breaking through what's going on with. ATF because they have issued violations nations against the company through the years but they really haven't taken a whole lot of substantive action that we can find and we don't know why so we're we're making some calls to Congress and to those who have oversight of ATF to see if we can answer to that question. Jean Bardin of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. We reached out to the G. Forest for comment by the way the company criticized the investigation by the Journal Sentinel in USA Today as a quote flawed biased and unbalanced report that lacks context next about lost and stolen firearms in the security industry.

"Not gonna cook today well we've got Carol death toll here she of course is a dining critic for the Milwaukee journal Sentinel and Carol for people who have just at the last minute set now not going to work or maybe they've already burned the Turkey or they forgot to to frosted today dining strategies do you have for the home all kinds of disasters like you've got your spouse is making a reservation and then he thought you were making a reservation whatever it might be you know the thing is a lot of restaurants do book up early so if you haven't made a reservation by now it could be tricky but all hope is not lost first you could look at the list that cant online that com or you can just Google restaurants open the Milwaukee thanksgiving twenty nineteen and come to the left and you'll see one thing that a lot of the restaurant either are they like each chain or they might be associated with a hotel and that's because what's held have gas in town that they need to feed who don't live here necessarily they might be tapping through and just happened to be here so a lot of those restaurants will be opened that's a good place to start let's talk a little bit about the hotels are they is a hotel going to turn you away the thing is that all the cables are all they have nowhere to put you into you you might not get the time that you want when you're looking for Hey but you remember even when restaurants are completely **** things happen people don't show up for the reservation they cancel at the last minute that sort of thing even if you think that the hotel or the restaurant might be fully booked with call anyway because they may have someone who didn't show up at the last minute or just cancel that day and there may well be something out there for you you might have to be a little flexible because the signs might not there might not be anything available but there might still be some even younger single restaurant that were strictly your reservations are required like old town Serbian restaurant on the south side it's by reservation only but again people cancel who knows they they may have more food than than reservation necessarily so you know it it pays to try anywhere but call yourself a drag to call for so they're always there possible please and something else to consider too if you really strike out on restaurant there are the major grocery stores there catering department they're taking orders you know all through October November for Turkey dinners that they do that they sell involved or individually and they may well have some orders were people did not show up to pick up or if they need some extra so you made that maybe another week sars there are restaurants that don't take reservations at all and you can't show up for that and that includes like the buffet and the four star that does that thanksgiving dinner at highlighting the hotel and casino so you can just show up there you know there are other places that are open like the Miller can support I don't think they do who are a Turkey dinner but you know you can get out of there so those are possibilities to nail the packing house on the south that they have something interesting they have a drive through or you can get the Turkey dinner or two with you just better if you're dining hello or if it's just a few or tree or something and you just need a few dinners both don't have to be ordered in advance so you can go to the drive through at the packing house which is unlike me and get your dinner that way yeah that's something I was on aware of where you literally can drive through and just get a dinner for two or or or right or whatever right yeah that is unique as far as I know I can't think of another place that has the drive through Turkey dinner but you know the youth there drive through on Friday fish fry so baby clothes that that drive through on thanksgiving day for a Turkey dinner which is pretty cool most memorable thanksgiving dinner you ever had Carol oh my gosh you know I I would say it's just it's probably at the one where all my family was together and yet you know people leave our allies and you just have to celebrate that find that you have and really if yeah if your dinner is a disaster if you're you know you forgot the thought the Turkey or something right or or you forgot you make your reservation there are grocery stores that are open going to get anything it's a matter of what you eat really it's that you're all together enjoy the day and you know what if nothing else this is gonna make a fabulous story for next year or the next time you dine out it'll be like yes what happened to our thanksgiving and you know what life goes on but just enjoy the day as much as you can it really isn't about the food it's about the family and the people you're with why don't stress out if you're cooking at home or if you own the dinner that you went out for isn't exactly as you envision don't stress out about it enjoy other people and just enjoy yourself that's what it's all about Joe I have to ask you because we're trying about last minute thanksgiving obviously today in a lot of people back in October made the reservations but what's the next big event that we want to make reservations for not in three or four weeks but right now if you were going out to your safe would you make your reservations tomorrow on Black Friday yeah it couldn't hurt you know a lot of places aren't quite sure what they're doing it necessarily are they haven't announced it yet but if you if you have a favorite place where it would just to distract you if you couldn't get in there go ahead and make that reservation and really know a lot of people eat out for Christmas as well don't wait if you are if there if you have a big crowd is that you have to take are you really have to go at a specific time do not wait make your reservation as soon as possible well Carol the toll of from the Milwaukee journal Sentinel it is a pleasure to talk with you today and have a happy thanksgiving you too at the end everyone out there I don't think I'm a good listener overnight it takes practice for more than one hundred

"Some of the battleground including Wisconsin and and that shouldn't be too surprising when you think back to what happened the twenty sixteen election and Donald Trump lost the popular vote by a couple points but he won you know key states like Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania by less than a point so back then there was like a two or three point gap between the national vote and the vote in the most important electoral state and we're kind of being that persist in Wisconsin his approval rating has consistently been about three points higher you know like mid forties then it has been in the average of the national polls were in the low forties is that enough then carry him that's the question how it's Lee but it could be I mean that you know obviously if the national landscape ship against him to get out at a certain point you know he's not gonna be able to top it out in the battleground states because they're you know they are part of the national landscape they're not you know they're not operating in a vacuum but he does have some room to maneuver here at the national landscape is similar to what it was in terms of the popular vote in twenty sixteen then absolutely you know he could kind of you know do the inside straight and and you know carry enough clothes battleground states to win the electoral college that certainly one plausible scenario speaking creek Gilbert Washington bureau chief for the Milwaukee journal Sentinel part of the USA today network he's written a piece entitled wall trump lags badly in some national polls he's for more competitive in key battlegrounds like Wisconsin I thought it was interesting a particular number you use in your story that I hadn't seen before and that's that Democrats might have to win the popular vote by three points or more in twenty twenty to carry the key battleground states what was it like in twenty sixteen can help with that comparison yeah I mean in twenty sixteen president trump you know despite losing the popular vote by more than two point Wisconsin by just under points and he carried Michigan Pennsylvania by less than a point so that was the spread that sort of roughly three point you have between the popular vote and those three so called blue wall St some people think that there could be an even bigger spread on the to the scenario in which president trump could lose the popular vote by more than a little more than three point and still win in the electoral college I mean the thing about the electoral college is it you know when you when states are being decided by such a narrow margin it increases the chances that there's a disconnect between the popular vote and the electoral college outcome because obviously when president trump is super unpopular in some very large and popular states like New York and California that is going to influence the national polls and the national vote but it's not going to necessarily dictate what happened to the state like Wisconsin are these polls accurate enough one year out well no I mean they're they're accurate snapshot not yet some people are you know and with some reason are skeptical across the board of polling I think the polling is still pretty good at a lot of ways overall if again if you don't get hung up on individual polls a few you know try to ignore the out wire poles in the bad quality told the polling is totally legit but it's just a snapshot in the course you know you can't say it enough times that we don't have a democratic nominee yet so that I think it that's why it's important to watch president trump's approval rating because that's historically been a really good indicator but even there you know he's shown that you know a lot of people think that he could outperform his approval rating in the end if he's up against the democratic nominee like you at last and it ends up with really I negative things creek creek Gilbert Washington bureau chief for the Milwaukee journal Sentinel.

to barely able to run it you know a partial five K. but I think this is a an important point for the people you work with when you're retired your life shouldn't stop because you can grow old pretty quickly yeah they just mention that and we want to dwell too much on on in negativity and get old and all that but it does happen fast and you got to realize the different phases of your life in retirement it into going to happen fast and it's just natural it doesn't matter it happens to everybody you could still be in incredible shape of sixty or sixty five or seventy but your bones are more brittle your your energy level is lower its chest natural and you're not going to be able to do the same thing you did you not gonna be able to work that second job you're not going to have the energy to do it's a don't count on those types of things to do the proper planning early on in your life and create the retirement income stream in and create the tax strategies and investor money tactically then you won't have to basically pick an audible later in life and try to find another way to make money absolutely and that goes back to planning with the right person to that's the next take away from the game here on today's list not to work with the fiduciary who's truly on your team actually we caught up with hall of fame coach Mike Ditka a few years ago who admitted there a lot of stories out there today about players who ended up bankrupt even with their big paychecks but he says they are trying to fix that in the league today we know that everybody today in this in this time and in sports has an age that agent has to have their best interests at heart and at best interest is is for them to invest their money put him on a budget put a minor they can only take so much out of what they're interested in best so you got to really have a financial adviser and I think that's the most important thing an athlete can do now some people come to you after they've been burned by other advisers in the past Keith so how important is it to ask the right questions of your adviser and how do we know if they're actually working in our best interest yeah William starts off working with a fiduciary that's become really prevalent the last couple years almost everybody nowadays knows to ask are you a fiduciary member if you're working with anybody. anybody who works for a bank or brokerage firm they're not a fiduciary okay lost says they recounted to the lowest form based on the law and the bank or brokerage firms they voted against a fiduciary role and they don't allow their advisors to be if you share the individual maybe one but if they're working for the bank or brokerage firm they're not working in the capacity of an individual fiduciary so therefore they are not and I guess I have to explain this over and over again if you working with any of the banks or brokerage firms they do not have your best interests in mind there is lots of added fees there they can make markets in the stocks they're selling you they can there's a million things I could do that or not in your best interests that are in the firm's interests and that's why they voted against a Fisher right yeah and the way I am a fiduciary wanted yes I I it would have been for many many years and I was amazed and surprised to find out just a few years ago that not everybody was I really thought before the law came into effect and then was revoked because it was over in that everybody was I was amazed that that not everybody as well this might be an eye opener to for some of our listeners

Community distressed, divided after photo of Baraboo boys' alleged Nazi salute goes viral
"Now was that the boys waving to their parents, give them a high five or was that the boys giving a Nazi salute. It sure looks like a Nazi salute. This happened some time ago, but the internet finally found it caught up with it. It's gone viral. And now literally newspapers around the world are talking about what's happening in Baraboo. They had a school board meeting this week to talk about it. And throughout that town, even at a town rally on Tuesday. The people have gathered to say, this is not us. In fact, one of the moms said, I hope that the picture of us at this rally. Promoting love gets the same amount of attention as the picture of the boys. Well, that's not gonna happen. I mean, you can find a picture if you want, but that's not going viral. And the Milwaukee journal sentinel reporter Anita Johnson wrote a long story about this. She's the K through twelve reporters. So she covers the education beat for the newspaper to the north. And she joins us now on WGN radio. Hi, Anita sits, John. How are you? I'm good. Thanks. How are you? Thanks for having me. Likewise. I'm glad you were able to join us. I guess the sixty four dollar question remains what was the intent of the boys or the photographer? Do we have an answer to that? Yet. Well, the has said that his intention was to get them to wave to their parents. Could we heard that about twenty four hours after this all started erupting online? We haven't really we had a few statements that have appeared on television news or online from the boys in which we're getting sort of mixed messages about what was happening. I don't think anyone has come out and said we intended to do and Nazi salute. But that has certainly been the impression did you. The single had been left with school administrators. I mean, they've surely talked to some of these kids, what's their view of this. We've repeatedly tried to reach them are they I, you know, I think they're in crisis mode. I think they have not communicated with us other than some canned statements. We got a statement yesterday that was a day. Three statement we received with an apology. It was a public apology, but the superintendent, and she essentially said, regardless of the details of the photo or the intentions in the hearts of those involved the truth is that this is an image. That has she said rightly been described as hateful, frightening and disappointing. I did ask her to clarify that. I don't like to have to read between the lines. I interpreted the right lead has been described as as her saying that's that. She believes that. This looks like a Nazi salute. But again without that clarification from her. I I can't be one hundred percent sure she didn't respond to your query about that. So while she said, it's it's rightly being interpreted as hateful, you don't wanna read between the lines. And I think that's wise. If you there's this young man, Jordan blue who said that we knew what was going on. Everybody was being funny by giving the Nazi salute. But he wouldn't do it. But again, one of the other boys a couple of them have since said, he said give us a high five, and we all gave him a high five, and that's all it was, you know, what's also interesting to me is the lag time here. I just can't imagine what it's like for anybody associated with their say, the parents or the kids themselves to several months later, all of the sudden, they go. Hey, remember that picture we took guess what we're we are in national conversation right now that must be so I dunno upsetting to these parents either. Because there. Kids were so hateful or upsetting to the parents because their kids aren't bad kids. This is being taken out of context. You know what I mean? Well, there has been some discussion about how this is a group photo that was taken on the steps of the courthouse before prom. And it is we have been told to parents were behind the photographer parents were there and could see it. I did see one news account where apparent apparently yelled at the kids after they did it then this photographs up online or on his website, the photographers website for awhile. So there's been some discussion about so why why do we, you know, how could this be up there for months, and nobody care nobody suggest to be taken down. Nobody raise a question about it. And only when it was it was actually mine standing of how this even broke. It was a blogger out of New York who posted on Twitter and said, you know, can can somebody explain to me how it is this entire class of kids looks like they're throwing up. Nazi salutes. And and it just exploded after that. So let it came down. And what just adds a little more context to it. Maybe is that you've got these kids, and maybe coincidentally they all had their arms locked as they were giving a high five to their mom and dad, and it wasn't a Nazi salute. That's hard to believe. Right. But I mean, that's that's what they're telling us happened. Okay. Maybe so, but what's really hard to understand that is why the other kid front and center in that photograph has the white nationalist. Okay. Symbol in his hand. It's it's a weird way to to pose your fingers, you you you when you see the photo that's not the way somebody normally rest their hands or poses in a photograph. But he's throwing next to one kid doing the Nazi salute the white nationalist symbol now. Wow. What a coincidence guys. Because that that really looks bad doesn't it? Well, I hope you have someone monitoring your Email because you will now be inundated with folks to will lecture you about how that has nothing to do with white nationalist movements. And how this is just a a a tall. So so what I had to do is go and educate myself about how that symbol has been sort of co-opted, and I would suggest going you can look up the southern poverty Law Center and also the AD L both of those have really good explainers about that symbol and how it's used. And how is it has it has it can mean other things, but it also has been co opted by white nationalist the question that people raises why then isn't that wildly coincidental? That that it's happening at the very same time his friends appear to be. Throwing up. Nazi? Yeah. Anita Johnson writes for the Milwaukee journal sentinel. She covers the education beat one of the thing about this. And he said, I'll let you go. But. Is there any other history at the school with these individuals or with the photographer because here's the kind of guy. I am in ISA. I when we asked our listeners yesterday, I want to believe that the kids thought it was funny. But they really didn't appreciate the gravity of it. Is there any history of again with any of the people? I just mentioned with them flirting with this subject in any other way. Well, I I want to go back to something you said about the gravity of it. And I think when you look at that picture, there might be some kids in there who don't know what's going on or they're they're sort of trying to figure it out. And maybe it's been suggested that some of these are kind of behavior where they just follow along. But they don't really understand the significance. You know until we did as kids. We don't really know what each person's intention was there. This is not unique to Baraboo, but you know, there are racial tensions and probably every community in America. And Baraboo isn't. The only one I've been talking to a parent whose child has struggled there. I there was a story from two thousand twelve aware where the principal had to address the proliferation of confederate flags in the school parking lot. And there were complaints to the school about how that was intimidating some minority students again, it's not unique to Baraboo. But I do think they have struggled some issues. Yeah. Seven hundred people nowadays are jumping to conclusions and trying to make something out of nothing. Well, I sounded like that yesterday. Then I went back and looked at the pictures, some more, and I found myself getting angrier, and sort of hardening my view on this. But I, but again, maybe none of this. I guess ultimately is fair until we hear more from the kids. There's no other video or photograph. I mean, if that's the case, then this'll be the first time in the history of the world that that many people have cell phones didn't
