The race to remove Governor Walz from office has a new doctor in it! Dr. Neil Shah launched his campaign this morning to Save Minnesota from career politicians.
Dr. Shah owns a growing medical practice in Minnesota that was shut down unilaterally by Governor Walz when he decided to ban elective surgeries in 2020. It not only impacted the business he worked so hard to build, but his patients missed early diagnosis for serious issues like skin cancer.
So Dr. Shah decided to get in the race as an outsider, because career politicians keep screwing things up. And he just signed the Never Again Pledge today pledging to the people of Minnesota to make passing the Never Again Bill his top priority as Governor
Here's his campaign launch video:
Thank you Dr. Neil Shah for pledging to stop the tyranny and ensure it Never Happens Again. He joins Mayor Mike Murphy and businessman Mike Marti who also signed the same pledge. Scott Jensen still refuses to sign the Never Again Pledge and has stated he is open to using Emergency Powers for things like curfews.
Governor Walz and the Department of Health just launched a new program aimed at getting minors, as young as 12 years old, to take the experimental COVID vaccine. The incentive for them is that they get a VISA gift card worth $100 once they notify the government's Department of Health. All they have to do to receive the "prize" is "roll up [their] sleeves", according to the program's promotion.
The long term impact of the COVID vaccines (mRNA) are unknown at this time. Which has raised caution from leading medical professionals like Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of mRNA vaccine technology. The vaccines are also not FDA approved and have not had the trials necessary to ensure safety. Instead, the vaccine's usage comes from an Emergency Use Authorization from the federal government.
More and more Americans are starting to question the vaccines, but the ability to spread information is being heavily censored by big tech. We're in a position now that the mainstream media, big tech and the government's narrative is almost unchecked. For those who have researched it themselves or don't trust the media and government, Walz thinks he can increase vaccinations by taxpayer funded incentives.
Recent guest on Joe Rogan's podcast revealing the horrible effects of the vaccine:
Many months ago, the Minnesota Democrat Party hired a big law firm to go after us for putting pressure on Democrat legislators who voted to protect Walz' Emergency Powers. They levied a baseless complaint with the Campaign Finance Board, asserting we were not following the laws and trying to directly influence elections.
Influence elections? This isn't even an election year. What we were doing is contacting constituents to tell them how their legislator is voting on Walz' Emergency Powers. And it was clearly effective!
Baseless, false claims are what the Democrats know. This is the Minnesota Democrat's version of a Russia, Russia, Russia hoax!
They wanted to DESTROY us. They wanted YOU to lose your voice at the Capitol, so Walz' biggest adversary would go away.
But guess what...It didn't work!!!
The Campaign Finance Board just dismissed the baseless claim against Action 4 Liberty.
We Beat the Democrats!
Let's be honest what is behind all of this. The Democrats did this to scare us away. They wanted us to STOP bringing pressure against their weakest members. And they assumed it would work because they are used to Republicans who constantly cower to them.
But we're something completely different. We don't back down. We take the fight to them. And because of your support, we have the ability to carry on the mission.
Please continue supporting the one group in Minnesota who does not back down to the Democrats and Radical Left!
Governor Tim Walz hinted that he may unilaterally declare new emergency powers due to the Delta variant. His comments were made on WCCO radio over the weekend in a discussion about a new mask mandate. According to Walz, a new mask mandate isn't possible because "I don't have the authority, my executive powers ended".
However, Walz later added, to reinstate a mask mandate, "it would require a new declaration of emergency".
The legislature terminated Governor Walz' peacetime emergency powers for COVID-19 on June 29th after receiving pressure from supporters of Action 4 Liberty. We also called on Senate Republicans to refuse to pass Walz' budget until the Rep Mortensen's Never Again Bill becomes law.
We are in this bizarre predicament where our Governor thinks he can just reissue a new emergency because Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka sold out and refused to pass the Never Again Bill. Our fears seem to be real - Walz thinks our Constitutional Republic can continue to be on hold as long as there is a virus spreading.
Here's the audio of Walz on WCCO Radio.
Did you see what the Chairwoman of the MNGOP just said about you and me? Alpha News received a recording this week of a Republican party meeting with Crazy Chairwoman Carnahan and well known RINO Rep Keith Franke. In that audio they talked about "purging" Action 4 Liberty supporters from the Republican Party.
Crazy Carnahan stated that Action 4 Liberty supporters "need to go away" and people in the GOP should "stop paying attention to these people" because that gives them "power."
RINO Keith Franke was then heard saying "the crap that they do to divide us, to pick off the more moderate members. We need those members, we need members like me."
Can you believe this? These are the people running the MNGOP!
No wonder why Walz keeps running circles around these weaklings. It's crystal clear they don't want STRONG CONSERVATIVES like you and me inside their ranks.
To make things even crazier, Franke asserted "half of [Action 4 Liberty’s] money comes from the DFL, secretly, because it has to."
What these guys don't understand is that our support comes from thousands of people like you who are fed up with do-nothing, weak Republicans who constantly lose to the Radical Left. Not from Democrats!
While RINO politicians and the crazy person running the MNGOP want to continue attacking you, our team is busy putting pressure on politicians on your behalf.
We still have door knocking teams on the ground, alerting voters of how to make sure Walz' Emergency Powers never happen again. We've knocked on over 40,000 doors so far this year, made over 55,000 phone calls to targeted districts across the state and continue building an online presence that influences hundreds of thousands of Minnesota voters.
Supporting Action 4 Liberty is different than supporting the MNGOP. With us, you at least get results!
Despite efforts by RINOs like Franke, we were able to catapult Ending Walz' Emergency Powers to the top issue at the Capitol. We refused to compromise because this issue was too important to you. That's why Walz' Emergency was terminated.
Unfortunately Weakling Paul Gazelka sold out on us by passing Walz' budget without passing Mort's Never Again Bill first. He didn't even get election integrity passed in the final deal.
We MUST pass his Never Again Bill so we don't get a repeat of the last 15 months!
However, if it was up to Crazy Chair Carnahan and RINOs like Keith Franke, we'd never get there.
They'll do everything in their power to get rid of guys like Rep Erik Mortensen. Remember when Carnahan REFUSED to support the more conservative candidates in the 2020 primary?
Fortunately, Action 4 Liberty supporters have volunteered their time, money and effort to getting better candidates elected.
That's why Rep Erik Mortensen was the ONLY Republican elected in the metro area in 2020 who had never served in office before. And the Party spent zero dollars to help him.
Mort was ONLY successful because of supporters like YOU!
It's crystal clear that we are under attack by both the Republican and Democrat Establishment (is there a difference?). They want to see us go away. But this mission is too important to let them win.
YOU HAVE THE POWER to send them a message that we are here to stay.
Supporting Action 4 Liberty ensures the conservative agenda advances in Minnesota. We're the one team standing up to the Political Class in this state!
Let's continue building a massive liberty movement in this state to STOP government encroachment on our liberties. Let's make sure Unilateral Emergency Powers NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN! And let's STOP Crazy Chair Carnahan's dream of purging conservatives like you from politics.
A new radical leftwing group just emerged in Minnesota and is already launching a massive advertising campaign promoting their hero, Tim Walz. In fact, their first ad promoting Walz talks about how he made "Historic Investments in Minnesota's Small Businesses". What a slap in the face to the thousands of businesses this man destroyed with his Unilateral Emergency Powers!
Unfortunately, this new far-left group has some huge financial backing. It's being run by former Minneapolis Mayor RT Ryback's son. And this signals the beginning of Tim Walz' run for re-election.
Can you imagine a guy who locked his citizens in their homes, shut down businesses, forced kids to wear masks and incentivized teenagers into getting an experimental drug, could be re-elected?
Well that might just happen when the big money lines up behind the leader of Minnesota's COVID Cult.
Since weakling Paul Gazelka sold out and passed Walz' budget without passing Rep Erik Mortensen's Never Again Bill, Walz is in position to declare Unilateral Emergency Powers all over again.
This is incredibly troubling since the media is selling the fear of the COVID Delta variant and Biden talked about a government program going door to door to vaccinate the population.
Action 4 Liberty was created to fight against this excessive government control and power. We go to war on your behalf to advance and protect liberty from tyrannical politicians.
But the evil of the modern liberal movement is getting funded and we're starting to see their lies being advertised directly to Minnesota voters.
THIS MUST BE STOPPED!
Action 4 Liberty invests our time and resources in young liberty professionals who are the boots on the ground across the state holding these politicians accountable. Our team works around the clock to STOP the Tim Walz train from running over all our liberties.
We need boots on the ground to build the political energy needed to pass important legislation like the Never Again bill. And we need these young fighters making calls, knocking doors and showing up around the state if we want to Stop the Walz Agenda.
But we can't do it without your financial support. YOU are the reason we are able to bring the fight to them! Will you do me a favor and make a donation today!
Last December, a heroic small business owner by the name Lisa Monet, courageously stood up against Governor Walz' illegal and unconstitutional order to shut down. Her bar/restaurant named Alibi Drinkery in Lakeville was a hopping place once doors opened. Patrons packed in to feel normal again. Even the state representative from the area came in for lunch.
Now six months later, Lisa's life is being destroyed by the COVID Cult that would love to see her homeless, living on the streets, begging for forgiveness for her COVID sins. She's been in court battles with the Attorney General, who represents Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm in her mission to make businesses suffer. After the Dept of Health revoked her food license, Lisa has been forced to watch her life's work being murdered by the very government meant to protect her liberties.
Lisa decided to sell Alibi Drinkery so her loyal customer base could still come to the place they love. Throughout her closure, bills continued to be paid and she was in good standing with her landlord. Everything was done right.
Now the new owner is in the process of getting a liquor license, but found a foe that should not exist: the Lakeville City Council. Word got out that Lisa would remain on board as a paid consultant for the new owner (which is common in business sales) and the Council is on the cusp of denying a liquor license in order to deliver a death blow to the Alibi Drinkery and its new owner.
All of this is being done as punishment for Lisa's defiance last December. Outrageous!
Lisa is being vilified in the public square for "putting the public health in danger". But the Dept of Health can't prove that her actions led to greater spread of COVID. In fact, all Lisa did was open her business, she didn't force people to come into her restaurant. The customers made a conscience choice to patron the Alibi despite the Governor's orders. They probably got sick of driving the 30 miles east to Wisconsin where businesses were wide open.
Tonight the Lakeville City Council is meeting to determine if the new owner of the Alibi Drinkery should get a liquor license. Let's hope they do the right thing and stand up for the rights of their citizens.

Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka betrayed the business owners who defied the Governor's illegal shutdown orders last December by increasing the funding for Attorney General Keith Ellison's office. Currently, those business owners are still being sued and attacked by Ellison in courts on behalf of Walz' Department of Health.
In an attempt to act tough, Gazelka posted a video on December 17th with a message directed at the Governor and Attorney General, stating that "if you start fining these people $10,000 a piece, you can expect that money to come out of your budget". Gazelka added "you can not keep closing down these businesses, they are hanging on by a thread". That message turned out to be a lie, as Senate Republicans just passed a budget early Wednesday morning that increased the AG's budget by $8 million. Meanwhile, businesses like Haven's Gardens in Lynd, MN are still under attack by Ellison.
Gazelka also made a feeble attempt on the last days of the Special Session to remove the excessive fines imposed on the businesses when he added an amendment to the State Government Finance Bill, SF2. That amendment was removed by House Democrats in conference committee on Sunday. Rep Erik Mortensen tried adding it back into the bill on the House floor late Tuesday night, but it was voted down by all Republicans and Democrats. Gazelka then passed the final bill without the reprieve from fines, leaving these business owners in the same position - under attack by their government.
Here's the language of the amendment that was removed from the final bill:
The State Government Finance Bill contains the AG's budget, which increased by over $8 million or 17% from the last biennium. Gazelka was all talk, no action. He betrayed these business owners and ended up in a position where Governor Walz could do it all over again because he refused to hold up the budget until the Never Again Bill was passed into law.
Here are the votes on the State Government Finance Bill in the Senate:
Here's the vote in the House:

Thanks to the calls, emails and financial support of our supporters, Ending Walz' Emergency Powers became the top issue at the Capitol and early this morning, the House and Senate voted to End Governor Walz' Emergency Powers effective 11:59 PM on July 1st.
Action 4 Liberty's team made 55,000 phone calls to voters in the last couple months, putting real pressure on politicians in St Paul to End Walz' Emergency Powers. We've door knocked from Moorhead to Hibbing to Winona. Our team of young liberty professionals donned heavy coats in -30 temps in February and knocked doors through our recent heat wave. All because we were determined to End Walz' Emergency Powers.
We NEVER GAVE UP! It was clear that crony politicians in St Paul didn't care that one man took over lawmaking in our state. So we forced them to care about the issue by bringing intense pressure on them.
While we're thrilled that we achieved our first objective of Ending Walz' Emergency Powers, Gazelka and the Political Class have left us vulnerable to this all happening again.
Liberty Champion Erik Mortensen introduced the Never Again Bill last March that would solve the problem of Unilateral Emergency Powers. But Gazelka REFUSED to listen to YOU and pass the bill.
So Governor Walz could reissue completely new Unilateral Emergency Powers at any time. All because Gazelka was too weak to STOP the budget before the Never Again Bill was passed into law.
Gazelka needs to learn a lesson from the Democrats. Late last night, they were able to force Senate Republicans to pass their radical Public Safety bill or else risk a partial government shutdown. This is how the ugly politics work in the final hours of a legislative session, Gazelka should have played hardball...but he didn't.
Even worse, instead of a resolution to End Walz' Emergency Powers, Gazelka stuck the language in the State Government Finance Bill that completely funds the Governor's office and gives the Attorney General a 22% pay increase!
Democrats abolished the provision in the bill that would forgive the fines paid by courageous business owners who defied the Governor's illegal orders. And Gazelka not only gave up on that provision, he helped fund the Attorney General's office that is still going after them!
Our work is not done. Action 4 Liberty is committed to pass Mort's Never Again Bill so this never happens to us again.
We hired 10 young liberty professionals this summer to come work for our growing operations. We're making serious commitments to protect liberty for the next generation.
It's crystal clear to us that we need to grow larger, expand our team and bring even more pressure against the Political Class that is destroying Minnesota.
Now it's critically important we continue building so we STOP future lockdowns, mask mandates and vaccine passports.
Action 4 Liberty has fought to End Walz' Unilateral Emergency Powers for the last 15 months. Our objective has been to first End Walz' current Emergency Powers. Then we have to make sure they Never Happen Again!
That's why we worked with Liberty Champion, Rep Erik Mortensen to create the Never Again Bill that eliminates Walz' Emergency Powers. It's the only bill that ensures Walz' Emergency Powers NEVER happen again!
We are almost about to accomplish that first objective and that's because of our supporters making calls, sending emails and donating to our pressure campaign!
But danger lurks in the waters. Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka is looking to put Emergency Powers in our Constitution. Currently, the Governor's Emergency Powers are NOT in the Constitution, they are state statutes that are in direct conflict with our Constitution. Liberals would love nothing more than to upgrade Emergency Powers into the State Constitution.
We say NO WAY! Don't enshrine Emergency Powers in our Constitution. Don't etch in stone the abuse we experienced over the last 15 months.
Gazelka's Dangerous Fake End Powers Bill would put a question on the November 2022 ballot. If it passes, it doesn't solve the problem because a simple Democrat Majority would ensure Endless Emergency Powers happen again. Even worse - If voters vote it down, Walz will proclaim that Minnesotans want him to keep his Unilateral Emergency Powers. This is a lose/lose position.
THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! We can't let this pass.
