The Minnesota Senate today is debating SF4511 which Minnesota Senate Republicans are pushing. The bill would not end Governor Walz’s stay at home order or shutdown order. Instead the bill would allow businesses to reopen if they follow the ever changing bureaucratic guidelines set forth by the Walz administration.
This bill is just another example of Minnesota’s establishment republicans cowering in fear and compromising our rights away. They are saying you can only reopen your business if you follow Governor Walz’s rules! They don’t think you should have the freedom to choose how to handle your business!
The bill would also do nothing to address the stay at home order or even activities like camping.
It’s also important to note that this bill would have to pass the house and get signed by Governor Walz which is doubtful.
The only way to stop Governor Walz’s executive orders is through resolutions in the house and senate. A resolution would not need the Governors signature to take affect. There have been two attempts in the Minnesota House to pass the resolution both have failed. However, the senate republicans have not even made one attempt.
It’s time we tell the establishment republicans in the Minnesota senate to actually try to do something! Stop comprising our freedoms away! Now is not the time to cower! Even if the resolutions fail they need to be attempted. Do they really want to be considered collaborators, because at this rate that’s how history will remember them.
Annette has an autoimmune disease that affects her lungs and also has vocal cord issues which makes breathing difficult. Eventually, the symptoms subsided as days went by. Meanwhile, Larry found out he might have already recovered from COVID-19, all while mostly asymptomatic.
“Back the end of February, first of March, I went through a period of fatigue and light-headedness but just kind of self-medicated with coffee, so I just kind of worked through it and didn’t really know but then after Annette tested positive they wanted me tested and discussed some of the symptoms and it was like, oh my, I maybe did have that a couple of weeks ago,” said Larry.
The couple, both in their late 50′s, didn’t travel out of the country recently and isn’t exactly sure where they may have contracted the disease. They want people to know just how drastically different COVID-19 symptoms can be, even in the same household.
That would mean Covid-19 was community spreading in Southern Minnesota (the couple is from Martin County) prior to the states first official case. Which makes you wonder how long the virus has actually been here? The virus could have been spreading since early February or even in January. Which would put a giant dent into the official story put out by the media and the state that now is the time to panic.
It appears we are ruining our economy and people’s lives fighting a virus that was already here and spreading prior to Governor Walz’s authoritarian actions to stop it. Though the virus is deadly to some we would be better off concentrating on protecting the most at risk and voluntarily self quarantining like we would with influenza. We as Americans have never bowed to tyrants or diseases before and we shouldn’t start now.
Governor Tim Walz during the Coronavirus daily briefing admitted they are spying on Minnesotans. Governor Walz mentioned they are gathering travel patterns and social distancing compliance data via individual cell phone tower pings.
Watch for yourself! Key points are the beginning and at the 2:15 mark.
The following is a statement from Representative Steve Drazkowski and Representative Tim Miller of the New House Republican Caucus.
STATEMENT REGARDING ETHICS INVESTIGATION OF REP. KURT DAUDT
St. Paul – Today, Representative Steve Drazkowski and Representative Tim Miller made the following statement:
“Leadership matters. Over a year ago, we formed the New House Republican Caucus because Rep. Kurt Daudt had a long history of failed, dishonest, and unethical leadership. Rep. Daudt’s recent acceptance of a high-powered job with a multinational corporate lobbying firm, while continuing to serve and vote in the Minnesota House of Representatives, demonstrates a total lack of ethical behavior.
Rep. Daudt is a lobbyist for Stateside Associates. This firm represents many corporate interests involved in all sectors of our economy. As a result, Rep. Daudt is inevitably casting votes on behalf of his influential clients. In Minnesota, legislators are barred from received lobbyist gifts worth over $5. However, Rep. Daudt is unabashedly taking what is likely a very substantial salary from Stateside Associates.
Furthermore, our offices are now getting calls from lobbyists with Washington D.C.- based Stateside Associates. In all our years of serving in the Minnesota Legislature, we have never once received a call from a Stateside Associates lobbyist until Rep. Daudt started working for them. Rep. Daudt is trying his hardest to pump swamp water from Washington D.C. directly into Minnesota. This must stop.
We believe that Rep. Daudt has most assuredly betrayed the public trust and has brought dishonor and disrepute upon the Minnesota House of Representatives. As such, we have sent a letter to the Speaker of the House requesting a full ethics investigation into Rep. Daudt’s deliberately exercised ethical conflict. An ethics investigation is a commonsense measure to ensure the integrity of our government.
The people of Minnesota deserve competent leaders. These individuals must be independent, acting in the best interest of the people, and ethical.
In addition to standing up for true conservative values, we formed the New House Republican Caucus to reintroduce honesty and transparency into the Minnesota Legislature. All legislators, regardless of political allegiance, must be held to the high ethical standards that the public expects from its leaders.”
That leads us to ask are you okay? Drink to much coffee? Or maybe your nervous, because you know the your constituents back here in Minnesota aren’t happy with you.
We should all check in on the Senator to make sure she is okay. While we are at it let her know she is letting us down with her failure to help support mining in northern Minnesota.
.@amyklobuchar While you have been jetting all over America we have been entrenched in a fight to bring good paying copper nickel mining jobs to NE MN. At what point did you abdicate your responsibility to your constituents in pursuit of your own personal agenda? @MinnesotaMiners
The spending plan passed by the state legislature includes a plan to spend $900,000 of tax payers money on turning lawns into bee gardens. The program will pay people to plant native flowers and plants that are good for the Rusty Patched Bumble Bee which is on the endangered species.
It doesn’t surprise us that this kind of waste is included in the spending plan. After all it does increase spending by $3 billion. What gets to us is the fact that this is just the tip of the ice berg of waste.
The DFL has no concept of justifiable spending. It can be proven by the fact that the DFL deliberately voted down emergency insulin funding which would help diabetics of all ages. Instead they decided that bees were more important than their fellow Minnesotans!
All but 2 DFL house members have voted in support of HF2400 which includes on page 258 includes CSE (Comprehensive Sex Education). CSE is heavily lobbied for by Planned Parenthood.
The program revolves around the book “It’s Perfectly Normal”. Which Planned Parenthood recommends to 4th – 6th graders.
The book contains explicit drawings of both sexes. Also covering the topics of Homosexuality, vaginal, oral and anal sex, and not surprisingly abortion.
Rep. Eric Lucero stood up to the DFL on the house floor even reading some of the book.
Update: Alpha news recently tried to promote their coverage of the bill/program on Facebook. They were not allowed to because the images were deemed inappropriate for Facebook. Yet the democrats think they are appropriate for 10 year old who isn’t even old enough to start a Facebook account!
In a massive power grab attempt by 9 Annandale area lake associations, the Wright County Commissioners, and now an amendment in the Minnesota Senate bill SF 2314. Area fishermen/women and boaters rights to access public waters are under threat in the name of stopping AIS (aquatic invasive species).
The program called The Wright County Regional Inspection Pilot Program (WRIP) was original started in 2017 included 3 lakes, but has been expanded to a total of 9 lakes starting this year.
The program forces boater to first travel to a wash/AIS inspection site in Annandale to be inspected before they are allowed to launch. The site is around 15 miles out of the way for some lakes, and the hours are limited. For example, if a person wanted to go fishing early in the morning they would have to drive to the site the day before.
Inconveniences brought on by this program, and the threat of punishment (up to $1,000 in fines) for not compiling have greatly cut boat traffic. This has gone on to hurt the local economy. Do to the lose of out of town traffic, and some locals choosing to go out of the area to fish or boat. Less people coming through means less money spent.
The worst aspect of this program is that most of the lakes in this program are already infected with AIS, and the program eliminated exit inspections on the lakes. Which points toward the obvious truth that is nothing more than a attempt by the lake associations to cut traffic on “their” lakes. If it was truly about stopping AIS they would have exit inspections. It is clear that this is about control, they are taking your right to access public waters.
The only good news is the DNR to dismay of the lake associations cut funding to the program after this years expansion to 9 lakes. The program is set to make a comeback (unless its stop) as a amendment to SF 2314 in the Minnesota Senate which will force the DNR to fund the program.
This program is the start of a very slippery slop. Once it is accepted in Wright County it will be expanded indefinitely. Our rights to access public waters are at risk.
Yet again the number of tax payer funded abortions have hit an all time high. With 4,356 abortions preformed on the tax payers dime. Over 1 million dollars given to the abortion providers in 2017. Sadly, the overall total number of abortions is much higher with only 44% of the abortions in Minnesota being publicly funded in 2017.
Planned Parenthood is responsible for the majority of the increase. They preformed 2,560 (59%) of the tax-funded abortions.
When will the left wake up to this genocide they are helping promote? Don’t they understand that this disproportionately effects minorities? The same ones they claim to fight for! Or is it possible we are seeing their true agenda? After all they do love Margaret Sanger and support the party that founded the KKK.
