President, Wisconsin Family Action & Wisconsin Family Council
Founded in 2006, Wisconsin Family Action exists to inform Wisconsin citizens about pro-family legislative and cultural issues, involve Wisconsin citizens in activities that strengthen the family, prepare Wisconsin citizens for elections, as the law provides, and advocate in the state legislature on cultural and legislative issues that affect the family. WFA advances Judeo-Christian principles and values in Wisconsin by strengthening, preserving, and promoting marriage, family, life and liberty.
It’s interesting how Wisconsin keeps coming up in the battles for political power. Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council shares her thoughts on the matter and the process of this voter recount. What are the possibilities involving the numbers of votes in WI, MI, and PA, and how could this affect the presidential election? What do Democrats stand to gain?
Aside from corruption or fraudulent practices, it’s a long shot at best to somehow find enough votes or mistakes that would actually swing the results in favor of Hillary Clinton. Talk about drama.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s campaign said it needed $2.5 million to fund its three-state recount effort in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Then it was $4.5 million. Then it was $7 million. Now it’s $9.5 million.
As Stein brings in millions of dollars in campaign contributions — in the last week, she’s already raised almost twice what she raised during the entire 2016 campaign — her fundraising success raises a big question: where is that money going, and what happens to it if there are leftover funds after the recount?
President-elect Donald Trump has slammed the recount efforts, saying in a statement Saturday that it’s a “scam” that will allow Stein “to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount.”
We also discuss our friend, Representative Paul Tittle, a Christian brother who has been hosting bible studies in his office since he was elected a few years ago. Here’s part of the story from OneNewsNow:
Tittl recently received a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), arguing the so-called separation of church and state in an attempt to either move the Bible study off government property, shut it down … or else. The third option implied by FFRF could be an upcoming lawsuit.
Julaine Appling of the Wisconsin Family Council insists that the only way FFRF has a chance in court is if it is able to line up progressives to hear their plea in the justice system.
“Freedom From Religion Foundation keeps hoping that they’ll find liberal courts – all the way up to the federal justice department – that will agree with them,” Appling told OneNewsNow. “And sadly,the reason they keep doing this is – you know – they do find sympathetic courts.”
When asked if he will bow down to FFRF, the Christian elected official showed no signs of wavering.
“No sir … No sir,” Tittl affirmed. “Not a chance.”
Next, a Media Research Center (MRC) poll shows a high number of voters rejected Democratic media bias and that by a 3-to-1 margin, the public saw media bias favoring Clinton.
Here are a few of the findings:
- 7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
- 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
- Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
Media Research Center (MRC)’s Brent Bozell said:
In 30 years, I’ve never seen anything like this. The media are in full panic mode because the American people rejected their leftist agenda — and them… There is an institutional bias at major media networks that must be repaired and I am highly skeptical that news executives are interested or capable of undertaking this responsibility.
Finally, we look at the excellent analysis from Dennis Prager in his article, 10 Reasons Left-Wingers Cut Trump Voters From Their Lives. Here are a few points:
Just like our universities shut out conservative ideas and speakers, more and more individuals on the left now shut out conservative friends and relatives as well as conservative ideas.
Most left-wing positions are emotion-based.
People on the right think that most people on the left are wrong; people on the left think that most people on the right are evil.
Unlike conservatives, politics gives most leftists’ lives meaning.
