  • Governor Walz Surrenders to Environmental Jihadists

    09/07/2021 4:16:33 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | September 7, 2021 | Gil Gutknecht
    Spirits must have been high as the Governor of Minnesota took the long drive from St. Paul to Alexandria. The weather was perfect, clear cool skies. A glorious day for a picnic on the banks of a picturesque Minnesota lake. It’s fair to assume that the staff expected a warm welcome at the Democrat gathering. What they got was a taste of just how radicalized their party has actually become. The Governor was beaming as he took the podium, prepared to rally the loyal troops. Minutes later he was driven from the stage. Mr. Walz was confronted by a squadron...

    Freshman Minnesota State Senator Julia Coleman (R-Chanhassen) is already making waves in Saint Paul. Fresh off the heels of her first legislative session, the former Miss Minneapolis 2014 titleholder immediately sponsored bills and served on the Education Finance and Policy, Taxes, and Transportation Finance and Policy committees. She was also named Vice Chair of the Local Government Policy Subcommittee on Metropolitan Governance. Coleman said her proudest achievement thus far was delivering on behalf of her constituents.I exclusively spoke to Senator Coleman about her call to public service, why she chose life for her identical twin boys despite doctors’ wishes, and...

    ... over allegations of domestic violence, indecent exposure Minnesota state Rep. John Thompson (D) launched his political career after a police officer shot and killed his friend Philando Castile during a July 2016 traffic stop. Thompson pledged to reform policing in the state and was elected this past November. Now, less than a year later, state Republican and Democratic officials, including Gov. Tim Walz (D), are calling for Thompson’s ouster after his own recent traffic stop led to new revelations about his past. Since the stop, police reports have surfaced showing that, years ago, Thompson was accused of choking and...

    Gov. Tim Walz has been tapped to co-chair President Joe Biden's Council of Governors. The council, which consists of 10 bipartisan governors, advises the secretaries of defense and homeland security, as well as the White House Homeland Security Council, on matters related to the National Guard. Walz will co-chair the council with Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. "I am honored to be appointed as co-chair to lead this bipartisan group of governors to continue to strengthen the state-federal partnership on matters related to the National Guard and civil support missions," Walz said in a statement. "This has been an historic year....

    Attorney General of Minnesota Keith Ellison said Tuesday that the guilty verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial was not justice. “I would not call today’s verdict justice, however, because justice implies true restoration,” Ellison said. “But it is accountability, which is the first step toward justice.” The jury found Chauvin guilty on all three charges of killing George Floyd; second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. Ellison spoke to reporters at a press conference after the verdict. “Now the cause of justice is in your hands,” he said. “And when I say your hands, I mean, the people of...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) stated that unless there is societal change after the George Floyd case, “we’re going to be right back here again” and “we can’t be denying the right to vote to black communities when they’re saying, thank God we’re able to vote for somebody like Keith Ellison to be the attorney general.”
  • The Real COVID Nursing Home Scandal Is Why Cuomo And Other Democrats Did It

    The Federalist ^ | March 10, 2021 | Willis L. Krumholz and Robert Delahunty
    Amid Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment allegations, and the scandal over his administration hiding the disgustingly high number of nursing home and group home deaths, few are talking about the elephant in the room. The big scandal isn’t that Cuomo is a creep, because everyone knew that already. The scandal isn’t even that Cuomo lied about nursing home deaths. The real scandal is what lay behind the high nursing home deaths in New York and a handful of other states led by leftist governors such as Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer, Minnesota’s Tim Walz, and Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf. It is the story...

    The Democrat governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, has implemented rules for sports that apparently would force children as young as five in hockey leagues to wear masks while playing. The Minnesota Department of Health, in its “COVID-19 Sports Practice Guidance for Youth and Adults,” writes: Starting Jan. 4, 2021, practices for organized youth and adult sports may resume. Practices cannot exceed pod sizes of more than 25. Spectators are not allowed; however, this does not prevent a parent, guardian, or support person from being present if necessary due to a participant’s age, disability, or medical condition. … Face coverings must...

    Donald Trump has criticized Minnesota's Governor Tim Walz and Attorney General Keith Ellison as COVID-19 restrictions in the state have forced the Trump campaign to downsize a rally due to be held on Friday. The president's rally was originally planned for Rochester Airport, but reports on Thursday indicated that the campaign had moved the event to the property of two businesses in the city of Dodge Center. However, after some confusion, it was later announced that the rally would take place at the airport and that entry would be restricted to the first 250 people to arrive. -snip- In response...

    Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz pleaded with residents on Monday not to attend crowded political rallies because of a spike in COVID-19 cases a week before the 2020 presidential election. The state recorded more than 1,500 positive COVID-19 cases on Monday and reached a record high for Minnesota of 2,290 cases on Oct. 16 as the state increases its testing capabilities. "I’m asking once again -- in fact, pleading," Walz said during a press call. "Just Google the candidate you want to hear speak, and then go vote. We want people to be enthusiastic about their candidates but it’s not a...

    Groups and individuals behind the action argue rule is unconstitutional. . A group of 16 individuals, churches and businesses are suing Gov. Tim Walz over his statewide mask mandate for indoor spaces. Their suit, filed Thursday in Ramsey County District Court, argues that the requirement is unconstitutional, conflicts with state laws, and imposes an undue burden on business owners. It also demands that Walz, state Attorney General Keith Ellison and Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom either show it is consistent with state law or end enforcement of the mandate. Walz faces several lawsuits related to the mask requirement, which he...

    RUSH: The Minnesota governor, Tim Walz — who is a Democrat — has come out in support; he’s reversed the ban on hydroxychloroquine. He did it very quietly. So you gotta ask yourself, why? ‘Cause this is something that a lot of people have known is effective for a long, long time, but the Democrat Party has been resisting its usage because that would benefit Trump. They need to continue to portray Trump as some kind of off-the-wall, genuine wacko nutcase who believes in and sponsors conspiracy theories. So they’ve invested a lot in the idea that Trump somehow would...

    Gov. Tim Walz on Friday announced he is appealing the federal government's decision to deny a major disaster declaration to help Minnesota rebuild from the rioting that broke out after George Floyd's death in police custody. The Governor requested funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency on July 2. That request was denied on July 10. Walz requested funding specifically to help rebuild public infrastructure that had been damaged in the civil unrest starting on May 27. In a news release, Walz cited the Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, which states that fires to public infrastructures regardless of...

    Let blue cities and their feckless leaders reckon with the destruction of the violence and looting. Remember all those “peaceful protestors,” later amended to “mostly peaceful protestors”? You probably recall, also, the Main Stream Media’s determined effort to portray the people in the streets protesting the death of George Floyd as nothing but well-meaning reformers—until pictures and video made the spin wear thin. Indeed, now even Democratic politicians are conceding that this wasn’t the “summer of love.” With costly reality staring him in the face, Minnesota governor Tim Walz, on July 2, sent a letter to President Trump, formally requesting...

    It would take volumes to recite how the city government in Minneapolis and the state government in Minnesota made it possible for rioters to inflict hundreds of millions of dollars of damage on Minneapolis and its twin city, St. Paul. After standing aside while Black Lives Matters protesters, Antifa anarchists, and garden-variety criminals trashed those cities, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz then had the chutzpah to ask for more than $500 million in aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”). On Saturday, to most people’s surprise, FEMA said “no.” Because George Floyd died during an arrest in Minneapolis, the excessively...

    The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz's request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd's death. Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a "major disaster" for the state of Minnesota in his request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on July 2. More than 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism in the days of unrest that followed Floyd's May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody, racking up more than $500 million in damages, according to Walz. The governor's spokesman, Teddy Tschann, confirmed...

If only.The COVID epidemic has brought out politicians’ faux reliance on “science” in spades. As good an example as any is my state, Minnesota, where our governor, Tim Walz, has offered one tribute after another to “science” as he has driven our state off the road and into the ditch with an irrational shutdown that protected all but the vulnerable.When Walz issued his harsh shutdown order,...

Weakness is pointing your finger at somebody else during a time of crisis,” Frey said at a press conference, later striking the lectern
