and now round 2 @ 5:50pm cst…
This happened between 1:45 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. on April 1st, 2012 – no, it is not a joke
BARABOO (WKOW) — First Clintonville, now Baraboo; Police are investigating weekend reports of booms and flashes of light.
Neighborhoods on Baraboo’s southwest side woke early Sunday morning to a loud boom, and less than an hour later, another one. Both booms accompanied by a flash of light. More than a dozen callers described the sounds of an explosion, blasting dynamite or a gunshot.
A police officer on duty was parked along 8th Street at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday when he heard the boom and saw the flashing light. He immediately thought a transformer blew.
“When those things go off they make a really loud pop and usually there’s a flash of light as they’re surging off the electricity,” says Chief Mark Schauf.
But it wasn’t. Alliant Energy told authorities they had no outages or transformer problems.
27 Storm Track meteorologists say it is highly unlikely that what Baraboo experienced was weather related, because no storms traveled through the area — leading Schauf to the only explanation he can think of: fireworks.
“There’s no evidence to suggest that there’s anything other than a man made cause at hand,” Schauf says.
But many of those who’ve heard it say it sounded much more intense. We talked to a few people in Baraboo who say they heard the booms but had no idea what it was.
Many people commented on the 27 News Facebook page, some saying the fireworks explanation is plausible, others say there has to be something else authorities are missing.
Police say there’s little they can do now, unless the city hears more booms.
City Officials Release Audio of Clintonville Booms – April 2, 2012
CLINTONVILLE, WI (WTAQ) – It’s been a challenge to record them, but Clintonville city officials have the first audio recording of the actual booming noises the city has been dealing with since Sunday night, March 18th. City Administrator Lisa Kuss says a Madison Area Technical College student Brian Sullivan was able to record a boom noise on Saturday March 24th.
Kuss says Sullivan has been working with the city on and off for over the two week period whenever he has been available. The booming noises are accompanied with ground trembles that have woken up residents in the middle of the night.

Gregg Jarrett commented, saying that the president lit a ‘judicial powder keg’ when he appeared to claim that it would be judicial overreach for the unelected justices of the Supreme Court to strike down an act of Congress. Even President Obama’s former Harvard Law Professor conceded that the president misspoke on this issue, saying, “The president didn’t say what he meant. I don’t think anything was gained by making those comments, and I don’t think any harm was done, except by public confusion.”
Megyn Kelly added that the letter makes clear that the courts have the power of judicial review, acknowledging that it has been in existence for over 200 years, “While duly recognizing the court’s authority to engage in judicial review, the Executive Branch has often urged courts to respect the legislative judgments of Congress.”
~My synopsis? We bullied, someone stood up to us, We changed our minds, but we still stick by what Obama said. Huh? Exactly!

A radical Islamist website featuring a mock movie poster has captured the attention of New York City authorities.
The sophisticated poster shows a photo of the city at sunset emblazoned with the words, “Al Qaeda, Coming soon again in New York.”
FBI and New York Police Department investigators believe the website’s creator may be Egyptian because of the style of Arabic used. U.S. Intelligence says there are no specific threats against America at this time.
However, agents are working hard to track down the source of the site, saying, “No one wants to be the person who overlooks a clue.”
They say that happened in the past and they paid for it. The last attempt was the failed Times Square car bomb in 2010.
Agents say since 9/11 they monitor thousands of radical Islamic websites.

Carney: Obama remark about Supreme Court was misunderstood
~ Insulting our intelligence…
During the Press Briefing: Jay Carney has trouble spinning the President’s remarks on SCOTUS (April 4, 2012)…
In an occasionally testy exchange with reporters, White House press secretary Jay Carney defended President Obama’s remark that it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to overturn the administration’s healthcare law, saying the comment had been misunderstood.
Speaking at a Rose Garden news conference on Monday, Obama weighed in on the matter for the first time since last week’s high court hearings that left many Democrats fearful that the five conservative judges would band together to strike down his signature domestic achievement.

Holder says ‘courts have final say’ in response to furor over Obama’s health law comments:
Attorney General Eric Holder acknowledged Wednesday that the “courts have final say,” and said his department would respond formally to an appeals court order to explain whether the Obama administration believes judges in fact have the power to overturn federal laws.
The attorney general, at a brief press conference in Chicago, made clear the administration thinks they do.
“We respect the decisions made by the courts since Marbury v. Madison,” Holder said Wednesday, referring to the landmark 1803 case that established the precedent of judicial review. “Courts have final say.”
~ Oh BTW, All three judges on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals panel are Republican appointees
The constitutional challenge to ObamaCare — the president’s “crown jewel” — is beginning to take on the air of a constitutional crisis. Two days ago, President Obama threw a brush back pitch at the Supreme Court. Yesterday, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ordered the government to answer the question of whether it accepts the concept of judicial review.
Judicial review is the legal vehicle by which the courts review laws and government action and decide whether those laws and actions are constitutional. Judicial review is almost as old as the Republic. It goes back to 1803 and the case of Marbury v. Madison, when the Supreme Court struck down a law on the grounds that it gave the Court more authority than permitted by the terms of the Constitution.
Obama is treating the Supreme Court like it was some Cook County, Illinois trial court.
Same as mine! There is no better!
