Iron County Progressive


From State Representative Beth Meyers

Hello to my constituents, 

The holidays can be a stressful time any year, but this Thanksgiving is going to look different for most of us. It may be difficult to not celebrate in person with some of your loved ones, but COVID-19 is still filling our hospitals and taking the lives of our neighbors and friends. Even though we are all exhausted, we must continue to be cautious for our safety and the health of those around us. 

Last week, Governor Evers released a package of legislation to aid Wisconsinites as our state has one of the worst outbreaks in the nation. See the summary of the bills here.

Unfortunately, Republican leadership has given us no indication of when we will meet again. Time is of the essence, and I will continue to push for action. Lives depend on it.

In the meantime, please stay home when you can, maintain distance and wear a mask. Do your part to protect your community, and take care of yourself as best you can. 

Thank you,

 


 

 

Brennan takes final shot at Trump: 'I leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history, & his legacy to a trash heap'

Former CIA Director and vocal Trump critic John Brennan on Monday took to Twitter to announce that he now plans "to ignore Trump," and will "leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history, & his legacy to a trash heap."

"For four years, I spoke out vigorously against Donald Trump's craven dishonesty, corrupt pursuit of personal interests, & trampling of our democratic principles," Brennan, who served under the Obama administration, began in a series of tweets. "After serving over three decades in national security, I felt compelled to condemn Trump's depravity & incompetence."

"My outspokenness has brought criticism, retaliation by the Trump Administration, & threats by those blinded by Trump's demagoguery," he continued. "Yes, it is unusual for a former CIA Director to speak out, but when an autocrat descended upon the White House, silence was not an option for me."

"I now plan to ignore Trump," Brennan added. "I leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history, & his legacy to a trash heap."

My outspokenness has brought criticism, retaliation by the Trump Administration, & threats by those blinded by Trump's demagoguery.

Yes, it is unusual for a former CIA Director to speak out, but when an autocrat descended upon the White House, silence was not an option for me.

And while I will refrain from referencing Donald Trump in Twittersphere again, I will not hesitate to denounce public officials of any political stripe who I believe betray the trust of the American people or engage in unethical, unprincipled, or corrupt activities.

I promise.

Brennan called for "strong bipartisan support" for the national security policies that will come from the administration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris once they take office in January.

On Monday, Biden announced a list of people he intends to nominate to head up his national security team, including Antony Blinken, a longtime foreign policy adviser, to serve as secretary of State; Alejandro Mayorkas to serve as Homeland Security secretary; Avril Haines to be director of national intelligence; and Jake Sullivan to be national security advisor.

Brennan added in a follow-up tweet Monday that while he "will refrain from referencing Donald Trump in Twittersphere again, I will not hesitate to denounce public officials of any political stripe who I believe betray the trust of the American people or engage in unethical, unprincipled, or corrupt activities."

"I promise," the former top national security official added.

Brennan's Twitter remarks come after the ex-CIA director argued earlier this month that President Trump was "score settling" with personnel changes at the Pentagon, which began with the firing of Defense Secretary Mark Esper, followed by a series of resignations of other top officials.

"He wants people to be personally loyal to him," Brennan said in an interview on CNN at the time. "So therefore the firing of Mark Esper and the decapitating of civilian leadership within the Pentagon, I think clearly is score-settling on the part of Mr. Trump."

Sources reportedly told CNN's Jake Tapper that the White House had focused on pushing out Esper's undersecretaries after Esper and his team argued against withdrawing troops from Afghanistan.

Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller hired a senior adviser who frequently pushed for the immediate removal of troops from Afghanistan, and, last week, Miller announced that Trump had ordered the Pentagon to pull 2,500 U.S. troops from Afghanistan and Iraq by mid-January.

Some experts have warned that such a rapid withdrawal would threaten national security and stability in the region, with the military frequently arguing against going below the 4,500 troops currently in Afghanistan.

Military officials have said that conditions on the ground do not warrant a drawback of troops, with the Taliban failing to uphold its agreement with the United States for peace in the country.

Chris Christie tells Trump to end election lawsuits, calls his legal team 'national embarrassment'

·         Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday that the president should end his legal fights challenging the results of the election and concede to president-elect Joe Biden.

·         "You have an obligation to present the evidence, the evidence has not been presented," Christe said.

·         Christie described Trump's legal team as a "national embarrassment" and Powell's explosive claims as "outrageous conduct."

·         Trump has alleged that the U.S. presidential election was riddled with "massive improprieties and fraud" and has therefore rejected the results.

 

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's confidant former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday that the president should end his legal fights challenging the results of the election and concede to president-elect Joe Biden.

"Listen, I've been a supporter of the president, I voted for him twice but elections have consequences and we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn't happen," Christie explained on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

"They allege fraud outside of the courtroom but when they go inside the courtroom they don't plead fraud and they don't argue fraud," Christie said, adding "you have an obligation to present the evidence, the evidence has not been presented."

Trump has alleged that the U.S. presidential election was riddled with "massive improprieties and fraud" and has therefore rejected the results. Other top administration officials, such as Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have publicly insisted that the election is not over. The Trump campaign continues to question the integrity of the election through a series of legal actions across battleground states.

On Saturday a federal judge in Pennsylvania dismissed a lawsuit by Trump's campaign that sought to block that state's certification of millions of votes. The judge's decision is another brick in the crumbling edifice that is Trump's already long-shot bid to invalidate enough ballots in enough states to reverse Biden's victory in the election.

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., said in a statement that the judge's ruling confirms "Joe Biden won the 2020 election and will become the 46th President of the United States."

"I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory. They are both dedicated public servants and I will be praying for them and for our country," Toomey added.

The Trump campaign and its allies now have lost or withdrawn more than 30 lawsuits that were part of that effort.

Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell listed a slew of allegations of fraud during an interview on Newsmax TV on Saturday. Powell alleged that Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp may have been involved in kickbacks to public officials but gave no details.

"Sidney Powell accusing Governor Brian Kemp of a crime on television yet being on unwilling to go on TV and defend and lay out the evidence that she supposedly has" is "outrageous conduct," Christie said.

The former governor and federal prosecutor slammed Trump's legal team as a "national embarrassment."

 

 

Weekly News from Your Wisconsin Democratic Party Chair



The people have spoken. The election is over.
Joe Biden will be sworn in as our next president. Trump, true to form, is throwing a temper tantrum because he lost. But his flailing won't change the outcome—it just sets the stage for Trump to lose again and again, in recount after recount and court case after court case. 

In January 2021, the people's clear choice, Joe Biden will be sworn in as President of the United States—and the real work will begin. 

Wisconsin clerks and other election officials oversaw one of the smoothest, most transparent elections in our state's history. Now, clerks and workers and observers in Dane County and Milwaukee County will conduct a transparent, smooth recount and demonstrate for a second time that a clear majority of Wisconsin voters chose Biden and rejected Trump. 

Trump's baseless lawsuits—no doubt he'll keep filing them—illustrate his
desperation to cling to power, despite losing. He knew the rules, he was elected by those rules in 2016... and he's whining about them now because he lost by them in 2020. In America, we believe in upholding the democratic, peaceful transition of power, and we're going to do it again—just as we've done at every other juncture in history.

We turned out, across race, across place,
surpassing 2016 Democratic turnout in every single county in Wisconsin. We chose our leaders. Now we're going to move forward together. 

In solidarity, 

Ben

Gov. Evers Continues to Lead through the Pandemic While Republicans Do Nothing

 

As Wisconsin continues to break coronavirus records with more and more people dying and cases skyrocketing, Gov. Tony Evers is showing strong and steady leadership through the pandemic that is ravaging our state. On Tuesday, Evers unveiled a $541 million package of COVID-19 related measures that would provide economic and health relief to working families across the country. He also announced this week that he will declare a new public health emergency and extend the statewide mask mandate

Speaking to the moment, Evers said,
“It’s clear based on where we’re headed, we cannot afford to stop or have a gap in some of our only mitigation efforts we still have in place… We’ve got a long road ahead of us, Wisconsin, but we need to buckle down and get through this together until then. Call it what you want – flattening the curve, stopping the spread, staying safer at home . . . I’m going to call it what it is – saving lives.”

Meanwhile, Republicans continue to show absolutely no leadership and are actively slowing down any response. The pandemic has killed more than 2,700 Wisconsinites, yet state Republicans have yet to draft any bills aimed at addressing the public health nightmare. Evers’ spokesperson Britt Cudaback said,
“It’s shameful that Republicans are watching our state face an unprecedented crisis and would rather continue playing politics than work with the governor to do what’s best for the people of our state.”

 

 


 

Weekly News from Your Wisconsin Democratic Party Chair

 

 

Dear fellow Wisconsin Democrats,

We did it. 

Ten days have passed since Election Day, and it’s still barely sunk in. 

We really, actually, genuinely did it. 

Holy mackerel. 

Democratic turnout—the raw number of Biden votes, relative to Clinton votes in 2016—went up in every single county in the state. That means that, no matter where you live,
you were part of the Biden victory. 

In the weeks and months to come, a million pundits, analysts, organizers, and everyone else will keep sifting through the numbers to try to understand what it all means. One thing we know now: turning Wisconsin blue was always going to be a massive challenge. 

Look at Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. In those non-Wisconsin states, the GOP didn’t have the same hammerlock on voting rules. In 2018, Democratic candidates won the governorships of those states by double-digit margins, and in many cases, through court decisions, ballot initiatives, and legislation, voting rules eased access going into 2018. 

In Wisconsin, by contrast, Republicans and GOP-aligned judges set rules in Wisconsin to suppress Democratic votes, especially Black voters and young people across race and geography.

The GOP created our harsh and restrictive voter ID laws—and fought, from the lame-duck session of 2018 through court battles this year—to keep it in place, including the highly unusual requirement that requesting an absentee ballot involved uploading a photo or mailing a photocopy of one’s voter ID. 

Not only did the GOP battle against every effort to expand voter access—they actively made things worse. 127 days out from November 3, Republicans won a court ruling that actually curtailed voter access relative to 2016, by shortening the early vote period to two weeks and expanding residency requirements. Many Republican strongholds already had chosen two-week early vote periods. But in 2016, Milwaukee began early vote on September 26. This year, the easiest early vote date was October 20. 

Similarly, courts ruled to uphold a long-stayed GOP law that a Wisconsin voter must reside at her primary residence for 28 days, rather than 10, to be able to vote from there. This disproportionately harms voters who have to move frequently.

And at the Congressional and state legislative level, Wisconsin’s gerrymander remains legendary—one of the most extreme in the nation’s history.

All of those factors were stacked against us. They were why, even when polling suggested a blowout, we all told each other like a mantra: ignore the polls and vote. They were why we all felt that pit in our stomachs even when we could feel the wind at our backs in the final days. 

But they weren’t enough to overcome you.

Republicans spiked their turnout 15% relative to 2016. But your work, your tireless efforts, your refusal to concede in the face of Republican attacks, helped Democratic turnout jump up 18%. This was the work of volunteers and staff; of the campaign, of unions and grassroots groups, of candidates at every level and their families and kitchen cabinets and supporters; of community organizations and national allies and everything in between—and in the end, all of it, in every corner of the state, in every community and language, was enough to overcome the Trump and GOP machines. 

And when you look at the margins of victory in each state and add it all up, Wisconsin held the same title it held in the last election: we were the tipping-point state. (Read this Twitter thread for an explanation.) 

But this time, unlike last time, we tipped the Electoral College for the Democratic nominee. And that made all the difference. 

So many countries that start down the road of autocracy never come back once a strongman takes power. Here, through grit and focus and the skin of our teeth, we wrested the country back from the brink. The work goes on, and won’t be easy. But at this all-important moment, we came through. 

You did the work. You are now a part of history. Congratulations—and thank you. 

Ben

COVID Cases Skyrocket Across Wisconsin. Stay Home.

 

Cases of coronavirus are spiking across Wisconsin as hospitals get overwhelmed with patients. Wisconsin is currently on track to double its total number of deaths from COVID-19 before the end of the year. On Wednesday, health officials warned that hospitals in the state are approaching a point at which they may not be able to save everyone who gets sick. These horrifying numbers are because Republicans have now refused to meet or take action on COVID for 222 days.

This week, Gov. Evers used his statewide address as an opportunity to urge Wisconsinites to stay home to save lives, saying,
“I am concerned about what our current trajectory means for Wisconsin health care workers, families, and our economy if we don't get this virus under control. We must get back to the basics of fighting this virus just like we did last spring, and it starts at home.” He encouraged the basics that can make an enormous difference: social distancing, mask wearing, and staying home when possible.

We are thankful for Gov. Evers strong, steady leadership on fighting this pandemic and getting our state back on track. He has called on Republican leaders to bring ideas that they are willing to support to get the pandemic under control, and we need your help to urge our legislature to take action and save lives!
Call your legislators at 1-800-362-9472 and urge them to take action on COVID-19.

Lt. Gov. Barnes Says Harris’ Victory Shows Diversity Matters

 

Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes emphasized what a historic victory this election was, with Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris becoming the first female vice president, as well as the first Black vice president and first South Asian vice president. Lt. Gov. Barnes, who himself was elected as Wisconsin’s first Black lieutenant governor in 2018, said, “Politics can often feel disconnected for too many folks, especially those communities that have been marginalized. Lower-income communities, communities of color. When we bring in people that have some sort of shared experience, it makes the election process that much more personal to them.”
 
We are proud to have fought and won such a historic presidential ticket, and we cannot wait to continue the march toward more inclusion, equity, and justice at every level of government.

 

The Worst Is Yet To Come – Very Soon
Jack Altschuler - JaxPolitix - 15 November 2020
Late Addition
The “Million MAGA March” has concluded with great bluster, chest thumping, hate
spewing and the absolute rejection of all facts that don’t comport with
demonstrators’ predetermined beliefs and conclusions. It was something of a “Yea
for us, we’re so so tough and so powerful and so right” celebration of self. If it
looked to you like something from another world, it’s because it is. Traditionally,
America hasn’t looked like that.
In the run up to the November 3 election I wrote a satire about how to deal with
the people harboring denial of reality, rage and that barely disguised threat of
violence that lurks ever-present and is always trolling for a target. But as we go
farther through the looking glass I’m beginning to think that the satire is less
satire and more sense. I recommend to you a review of that piece. Meanwhile, all
that MAGA muscle flexing will pair perfectly with what Der Trump likely has in
mind.
Times, WaPo, WSJ and others, stop wasting time on Trump’s voting fraud distraction.
Focus on identifying the outrage he’s planning for January 20.
page 1Trump has once again managed to distract the world with his baseless claims of
voter fraud. He did it after the losses he sustained in primaries in 2016. He did it
after the drubbing he took in the 2018 mid-term election. Now he’s doing it
following the repudiation of him in the 2020 election. We’ve seen this movie and,
frankly, it’s boring.
So why in the world should we chase down yet more of his bright shiny object lies?
Doing so is far worse than a waste of time.
It’s an abdication of our responsibility to get ahead of and stop his
next scam.
Given the short time available, that next scam will be his worst and it will be here
in a few days.
The Worst Is Yet To Come - Very Soon
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nsn1ZLqLRis
Trump has fired the Secretary of Defense and several other high level people in
the Department of Defense and has replaced them with know-nothing yes men,
people loyal only to him. Same for our National Security leadership and he fired
the head of our cybersecurtity team, as well as the leader of the agency that
safeguards nuclear weapons. That’s a lot of compromising of our national security
protections all at once. Why would he do that with only 2 months left in his
administration?
You know that he’s desperate to retain power, because he’s facing an
encyclopedia of indictments the minute he steps off Marine One on January 20.
Plus, he’s told us plainly that he wants to be president for life and that maybe he
won’t leave. He always telegraphs the wrongdoing he’s going to commit and we
ignore that at our collective peril. So, given his stated intention to stay in power
forever, what do you think he might do?
From Wikipedia (lightly edited):
“The Reichstag fire was an arson attack on the Reichstag building, home of the
German parliament in Berlin, on Monday 27 February 1933, precisely four weeks
after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany. Hitler’s government
stated that . . . a Dutch council communist was the culprit, and it attributed the
fire to communist agitators . . . The day after the fire, the Reichstag Fire Decree
was passed.”
You need to know about the Reichstag Fire Decree:
page 2“The decree nullified many of the key civil liberties of German citizens. With Nazis
in powerful positions in the German government, the decree was used as the legal
basis for the imprisonment of anyone considered to be opponents of the Nazis, and
to suppress publications not considered ‘friendly’ to the Nazi cause. The decree is
considered by historians as one of the key steps in the establishment of a one�party Nazi state in Germany.”
It’s a classic wag-the-dog tactic and I’ve been warning for years that Trump would
attempt to secure all power for himself in just that way. He’ll stage a
catastrophe, then claim that an enemy – perhaps our mainstream press, which he
calls “the enemy of the people” – is behind it. He’ll declare a state of national
emergency and impose martial law. He has sycophants running our military now,
as well as the Justice Department and much of our intelligence apparatus, so it
may be easy for Trump to get away with that.
Good-bye democracy, hello fascism.
Do you think that’s hyperbole? Fantastical thinking? Histrionic?
page 3So did the citizens of Germany in 1933.
In fact, Hitler told them that he would “Make Germany great again.” Sound
familiar? Read the essay. You’ll be shocked at the parallels.
Need more convincing? Have a look at what Timothy Snyder, professor of history
at Yale University and the author of “On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons From the
Twentieth Century” has to say in a Boston Globe essay - click here. And read his
book.
Or have a look at the comments of Steven Levitsky, co-author of “How
Democracies Die” in a conversation reported in MIT News or listen to an interview
of Levitsky here. There are plenty more people concerned about Trump’s threat to
our democracy – just look it up.
We all better wake up to the reality of what megalomaniac Donald
Trump has promised and which is likely just around the corner. We’ve
been watching this coup d’├ętat in slow motion for four years and the
finale will likely play out within the next 66 days.
It’s a horrifying thing to realize that with most of the Republicans in Congress
actively participating in Trump’s fraud and with the courts and major departments
of government effectively neutered, the fate of our democracy may rest solely on
the decision of a few generals to resist an illegal order. As bad and perhaps worse,
if Trump attempts a coup, 71 million Trump voters will applaud. What will we do
with that?
A lot of barrels of ink and miles of newsprint, as well as huge volumes of online e�ink have been used to celebrate the Biden/Harris win. But it isn’t time to sit back
and sigh in relief over a coming Biden/Harris administration or that we’ve turned
away from chaos and cruelty, because that may not happen.
Of course, my analysis may be all wrong. Pray that it is. Maybe all Trump is doing is
collecting donations for his SuperPAC and his re-election fund for 2024. He can
later divert those hundreds of millions of dollars to himself and his family, like he
did with his charity. Or maybe he’s trying to stay relevant so that he can start a
$6 per month subscription streaming service that rakes in a billion dollars a year
from his devoted followers. His grifting would be a welcome alternative to the
destruction of our democracy.

 

Assembly Seat Reelection

 

 

Hello to my constituents in Northern Wisconsin,

The election is over, and I'm beyond grateful and humbled that the voters of the 74th Assembly District chose me once again as their representative. I'd like to thank everyone who participated in our elections amidst many unprecedented challenges, especially the hardworking clerks and volunteers that risked their safety to ensure every vote was counted. 

This has been a difficult year for so many of us. Across Wisconsin, there are businesses that are suffering, families that are struggling, and high tensions between neighbors after a polarizing election. And of course, we can't forget that there are so many of us that are missing someone tonight due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

With all this in mind, I am ready to meet this moment head on and get to work. The people of Wisconsin need their government to protect and advocate for them—inaction is simply unacceptable. 

As always, I will be a voice for the people of Northern Wisconsin. You put your faith in me, and I take that responsibility seriously. I will work hard, with transparency and without self-interest. That is my promise to you. 

Thank you all, and stay safe,

 

 

 

COVID-19 Update

 

 

COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and fatalities are on the rise in Wisconsin. Currently in north central Wisconsin, hospitals are at 92 percent capacity.

This week, Governor Tony Evers gave a speech concerning the rise in cases. Here is just a brief excerpt:

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation estimates 5,000 Wisconsinites could be lost to COVID-19 by January 1st if no further actions are taken to get this virus under control. That means another 2,500 people who might not be with us on New Year’s Day.

Wisconsin, this is serious. This crisis is urgent.

Across our state, families, workers, and communities continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our healthcare workers are going to work every day, working three, sometimes four, shifts in a row, often having to reuse or share masks, and putting themselves and their families at risk to do their jobs. We owe them our thanks, but they also deserve our action.

I am concerned about what our current trajectory means for Wisconsin healthcare workers, families, and our economy if we don’t get this virus under control.

So, I want to be clear tonight: each day this virus goes unchecked is a setback for our economic recovery.

Our bars, restaurants, small businesses, families, and farmers will continue to suffer if we don’t take action right now—our economy cannot bounce back until we contain this virus.

So, tonight, I have signed Executive Order #94 advising Wisconsinites to stay home to save lives.

We must get back to the basics of fighting this virus just like we did last spring, and it starts at home.

It's not safe to go out, it’s not safe to have others over—it's just not safe. And it might not be safe for a while yet.


See the full remarks here.

As you may recall, a Republican legal challenge and ultimate state Supreme Court decision stripped the governor of any power regarding orders to keep Wisconsinites at home. So right now, it's down to all fo us to do the right thing.

I know it's been a long, long year, and we are all getting tired. But just remember that every day that you've been safe and made good decisions, you may have saved a life. 

So please, stay home when you are able, keep a distance, limit gatherings and wear a mask, for the safety of you and everyone around you. 

As always, the best local information on your communities can be found with your county or tribal health departments:

If you need further information, feel free to reach out to my office with questions or concerns.
