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 Minnesota Free State has started a new Facebook group and a soon to be added section to our website titled Freedom Minnesota- You are the Media
The group has been started because we are all journalist and pundits. With voices and stories that need to be heard. The individual can sometimes even reach more people than the mainstream media!
That means we can all do our part to report on activities from the National and State level all the way down to local County and City level. Together we can hold elected officials at all levels of government accountable. Which can bring on amazing change for the better!
We will help you along the way by sharing your articles/post here on the website. We will also share them on Facebook! You may even be able to remain somewhat anonymous if you wish.
We want you all to join and post whether you can only post once a year or you can post once a day, all are welcome!
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
Last Friday Rep. Jeremy Munson post a video on Facebook demonstrating that there are still ways to get cheaper insulin. In the video which can be seen below Rep. Munson walked into a Walmart with out a prescription and bought a vile of Insulin for $24.88. The vile which was even of a popular brand which has been used for many years.
Knowledge of this option in case of emergencies could save lives! As well as save patients lots of financial headaches if this option is approved by their doctor. Even the American Diabetes Association confirmed that this is an emergency option with the supervision of your doctor. With the Vice President of the organization saying “It is far better to use the older insulins with care than it is to either withhold or even to reduce the analog insulin.”.
However, none of this information was taken into account by the democrats and the press. They quickly began pumping out stories claiming Rep. Munson was endangering lives. All of which contain a very similar hit piece title. (As a side note it is well known the most people only read the title of a news story or just the first paragraph. That is why these titles are important, they purposely miss lead people into thinking Rep. Munson is wrong.) Three examples can be seen below, and little substance is given to prove Rep. Munson wrong or that he is putting lives in danger.
Democrats lawmakers and activist have also been giving their two cents with Rep. Halverson saying this about the cheaper product: “it’s lower-quality, outdated technology with this insulin, it’s just wrong.” However, as stated above this is a good option for emergencies or other use with your doctors supervision as the dose are different between the newer and older products. Insulin4All advocates went on the attack as well and began trolling Munson facebook page pushing their national socialist ideas and propaganda.
Munson had the following to say in response:
“To the National Socialists trolling my page: I understand the underlying socialist agenda of the Insulin4All advocates to promote healthcare for all and you are being used to drive the wedge for the larger movement to nationalize healthcare. What I don’t understand is the belief that legislators should be debating an emergency insulin bill without discussing the older insulin’s current availability when even the Vice President of the American Diabetes Association states this $25 Walmart insulin is FAR BETTER than to ration the anolog insulin. He does say he prefers the newer analog insulins, “just not so that the conversation goes so far to say, ‘You’re going to kill people if you make them use those inferior insulins,’ ” which is what all the national insulin socialists are posting. I am not blocking people from posting to this page, as your voice needs to be part of the conversation.”
Since the posting of the video by Rep. Munson we have seen little talk of solutions to fix the problem high insulin cost from either the the Democrats or the press (other than give it to everyone for free). However, we have seen how quick they are to attack when a Republican proposes a solution or quick emergency fix. Even if Rep. Munson’s emergency solution isn’t an option for everyone it will still surely help more people than more government run healthcare.
Three Babies were born alive after a failed abortion attempts here in Minnesota in 2018. The abortionist than failed to give the care required by law to the children resulting in their deaths.
They are required by law to give care to children who survive abortion attempts thanks to the “Born Alive Infants Protection Act” which passed in 2015. The law has saved the lives of 11 children since going into affect.
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.
