Elect Hagedorn to protect Wisconsin’s conservative revolution

My column for the Washington County Daily News is online and in print. Log on or pick up a copy for the whole thing. Here’s a sample:

The key is to look to April of 2020. In that election, incumbent Justice Dan Kelly will likely run for reelection. Kelly is one of the judicial conservatives on the court.The challenge for Kelly is that the presidential primary will be on the same ballot. President Donald Trump is unlikely to face a serious primary challenger, so Republican turnout will be light. Meanwhile, the Democratic primary for president portends to be hotly contested, so Democratic turnout will likely be massive. That does not bode well for a conservative judicial candidate on the ballot. Kelly faces a steep uphill climb that has nothing to do with him, and everything to do with the rest of the ballot.

If Wisconsin’s voters replace Abrahamson with another judicial liberal and retain a 4-3 judicial conservative majority, it is exceedingly likely that the election of April 2020 will flip the court to a judicial liberal majority. If that happens, liberals will sue to overturn every conservative law passed in the previous decade and have the Supreme Court on their side. They cannot turn back the clock through the representative democratic process, so they will turn to the courts instead. Act 10, concealed carry, school choice, the repeal of prevailing wage, the Wisconsin REINS Act, voter ID, right to work, castle doctrine — all of it is at risk if judicial liberals gain control of Wisconsin’s Supreme Court.

That is why Wisconsin must elect a judicial conservative to the Supreme Court this April. That judicial conservative is Appeals Court Judge Brian Hagedorn.

    What an incredible step up he would be from Abrahamson!

  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    Looks like the evil, disgusting liberal smear machine is in full gear and Nord is lead pom-pom cheerleader of the liberal smear machine.

    Not surprised.

    Can’t refute facts in the story, so you resort to Trumpian exclamations of evil and disgusting, hmm?  You like people on the court who might implement their personal bias into law when their biases match yours?

  4. Kevin Scheunemann


    No need to dispute.   Liberals keep slouching toward a lower and lower moral standard.

    The immoral liberal cesspool sinking even lower is a universal constant.

  5. Jason

    LeRoy, that story is a nothing burger.

  6. Jason

    jff that’s a nothing burger.

  7. MHMaley

    Wisconsin is turning bluer right before our eyes and it’s a beautiful thing .

  8. Kevin Scheunemann

    Oh Mark,

    Hagedorn wins and State Supreme Court with be in conservative super majority for some time.

    The legislature is well held by Republicans.

    Congressional delegation is well Republican.

    Democrats have 3 loon bags between US Senate seat and U.S House seat. Kind is the only non- looney tune.

    Evers is destroying business and determined to make us IL.

    Hardly see that as a mandate to make WI blue.

    You really want more looney tune liberals, don’t you?

  9. jjf

    What?  It’s a justice’s job to ignore the law and inject their own moral judgments?  I thought it was all balls and strikes, easy as can be!

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    “Hagedorn wins and State Supreme Court with be in conservative super majority for some time”.

    How would this be any different than a year ago?

    You have done a great job recently on several threads exhibiting your utter hatred for any idea, policy or individual with an opinion or position other than your own.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    Did you just accuse me of being liberal?

  12. Le Roi du Nord

    Nope, I asked how your claim (see above) could be correct.  Afraid to answer?

    The rest is my opinion of your recent hate filled comments.

  13. Kevin Scheunemann

    Oh Nord

    “…Hate filled comments”.


    Accurate, in context, quote is all I ask.

    We play this game, but you always lose and make yourself look foolish.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    “Democrats have 3 loon bags between US Senate seat and U.S House seat. Kind is the only non- looney tune.”

    “Evers is destroying business and determined to make us IL.”

    “You really want more looney tune liberals, don’t you?”

    “Liberals keep slouching toward a lower and lower moral standard.”

    “The immoral liberal cesspool sinking even lower is a universal constant.”

    “Looks like the evil, disgusting liberal smear machine is in full gear and Nord is lead pom-pom cheerleader of the liberal smear machine.”

  15. dad29

    Yes, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy and Jiffy, it is immoral and an offense against nature to …….ahh……have ‘sex’ the way that homosexuals do, and it is also immoral and an offense against nature and nature’s God to “marry” another man.

    Your joint defense of this abysmal ideological aberration makes it clear that you should not be allowed to vote, and probably should not be allowed outside of a secure facility.

    Got it?

  16. Kevin Scheunemann

    1.). You dispute Pocan, Moore, and Baldwin are not loons?

    2.) Evers is not destroying Foxconn deal?

    3.) I was seriously asking.

    4.). They are.

    5.). It is a universal constant.

    6.). That was as nice as I could be over your attempt to smear Hagedorn, rather than talk issues.

    You mistake articulation of “truth” as “hate”. You should see a tolerance counselor for that.

  17. Le Roi du Nord

    “Liberalism is evil and hypocritical.”

  18. Le Roi du Nord

    1)  Yes.  They are members of the same species as you.  Loons are an aquatic bird.

    2)  No, he isn’t.

    3)   Most times it is difficult to take you seriously, as you rely on exaggeration, hyperbole, and false claims in your arguments.

    4)  Your opinion, but not supported by evidence.

    5)  Really?  Where is that constant defined.  How was it derived?

    6)  I didn’t smear Hagedorn, looks like he did a good job of that on his own.

    Don’t flatter yourself, you are one of the most inarticulate writers out there.  You are controlled by your ego and hubris.  It is no wonder you are a trump fan.

  19. jjf

    Which other forms of sex are “an offense against nature and nature’s God “?

  20. Kevin Scheunemann

    1.) Yes they are an aquatic bird, but they are not too bright.

    2.) that’s your opinion.   Thank God Trump saved the deal.

    3.)  That would be a difficulty on your part

    4.) Evidence is pretty clear from liberalsim’s intersectional heirarchy, embrace of gender fluidity and destruction of marriage under God’s design.

    5.)  Hollywood is the black hole center.

    6.)  You know what you did, and you did it purposely, like Pravda…I mean JSonline.


  21. Kevin Scheunemann


    Sex not inside a marriage of God’s design is an offense against God.

  22. Le Roi du Nord


    So you don’t dispute that you have been making intolerant and  hateful comments this week, eh?  How christian of you…..

    Re #6:  Do you dispute what Hagedorn said?  Or will you denounce his hateful and intolerant ideas?

  23. dad29

    LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy, you are the hater here; it is your nature to lie like Hell about Hagedorn.   Your actions are despicable.

    Someday you should look up the definition of ‘tolerate.’  The only proper object of that verb is modified by the adjective “evil.”  Think of it this way, LeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy:  we tolerate your line of crap–like slandering Hagedorn by calling him “hateful.”

    Nothing wrong with his ideas.  They could well  save someone from death by AIDS, or worse.  Meantime, why don’t you take your sophomoric prattle and chat with Jiffy?  Keep living your 10th-grade lives together.

  24. Kevin Scheunemann


    I do not dispute what I said….nice you actually produced a quote finally.

    I dispute your interpretation of truth as “hateful” or. “Intolerant”.

    The fact you can not tolerate truth, really shows how hyper-intolerant you are.

  25. dad29

    K, tossing “truth” at those two is like facing them with a crucifix, or showering the Wicked Witch of the West with water (by the way, that scene is an analogy to Catholic holy water and demons…..)

    You nailed it.
