Last Friday, new Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller (R-28) sent a letter to the Governor stating that he is hearing from a lot of people who are "concerned about the vaccination mandate". Miller alluded to the need of addressing this issue in the upcoming Special Session.
This is an unexpectedly strong stance from the typically soft senator who once held the co-chair position for the MN Purple caucus, and received votes of confidence from members of the DFL, such as Senators Melisa López Franzen and House Speaker Melissa Hortman. However, Action 4 Liberty's field team had just finished making over 5,000 phone calls and door knocks in Sen Miller's district. We found that the vaccine mandates was a HOT issue in his district.
The letter marks a small advancement in the move to pass a Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment with the $250 Million Frontline Workers Pay Bill - the purpose of the planned Special Session.
When asked to respond to the letter by the local media, Walz became furious. “We’re in a healthcare crisis that [Republicans] can act upon. I don’t know. The offer [in the letter] was to eliminate the governor's ability to respond to any emergency. They wanted an absolute ban on vaccine passports. We don’t have a damn vaccine passport, so quit pretending on the politics!”
Walz then attempted to imitate Republicans by saying “Oh, we’re not interested in that. We need you to make sure that there’s a vaccine passport ban, that there’s a vaccine mandate ban,” Walz said. “None of those things are real.”

Governor Walz and the Dept of Health took another step in the extremism direction by launching a new vaccination luring program that targets your children, ages 12 to 17. This program pays children $200 to get the government funded COVID vaccine. It calls upon "parents/guardians" to register their children for the benefits if they receive the first does between October 18th and November 30th.
If the $200 isn't enough of an incentive, the program also appeals to the college bound teenagers by entering them into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a $100,000 scholarship courtesy of taxpayers.
This program is incredibly problematic since the efficacy of the vaccines beyond four months appear to be minimal in stopping the contraction of COVID. On top of that, a recent study found that teenage boys have a higher chance of going to the hospital for myocarditis as a result of the vaccine than going to the hospital for complications from natural infection.
Action 4 Liberty believes this program is wrong and outside the proper role of government. Walz continues pushing a vaccine without knowing the long term risks associated with the experimental drug. He is also mandating vaccines among the adult population, which we are fighting. If you support stopping vaccine mandates in Minnesota, please sign our petition below.
Former Biden Advisor, Dr Michael Osterholm, who also has provided guidance to the Walz Administration, seems to get most things wrong these days. There are weathermen with more foresight than the University of MN infectious disease PhD.
Back on August 19th, Osterholm went on WCCO Radio with a warning about the upcoming "super spreader event" called the Minnesota State Fair.
“I would urge people to take a pass on this year’s fair,” stated Osterholm in August. “I don't want to watch in a few weeks the number of people that could very easily be seriously ill and even die from infection that they acquire there.”
Some heeded his doomsday advice and decided not to attend the fair - a place where many Minnesotans make their living from 12 days of sales. Attendance fell sharply from the previous fair year. Big exhibits like WCCO decided not to attend with live shows. Of course, Action 4 Liberty attended and our booth was extremely popular.
As we approach a month since the fair ended, the evidence suggests Osterholm's advice was very wrong. According to the Minnesota Dept of Health, only 69 cases were traced to the fair out of an attendance of 1.3 Million fairgoers. In other words, fairgoers only had a .005% chance of contracting COVID in those 12 days.
The dishonest media lied last month when famous podcaster Joe Rogan got COVID and took ivermectin. Despite focusing on his rapid recovery from the virus, they instead mocked him and told their audience he was taking "horse dewormer". Rogan was following the protocol from doctors like Dr Pierre Kory, which included the human drug, ivermectin.
CNN apparently wanted to set the record straight and offered up their chief medical officer Sanjay Gupta for a three hour conversation. It didn't go well for him though. Watch this exchange when Rogan confronted Gupta for CNN's lies.
Vaccine mandates will remain in effect after a federal judge's swift decision in favor of Minnesota's large medical conglomerates. The case was brought by 188 health care workers who feared losing their job due to their refusal to get the experimental jab.
One of the issues in the suit, according to court observers, is that none of the plaintiffs had been fired. The medical conglomerates had approved religious and medical exemptions and not fired a single person who refused to get the vaccine. Of course, firings are likely to come soon.
The other issue, raised by the defense, is that the plaintiffs in the case remained anonymous. U.S. District Judge Nancy Brasel stated to the plaintiff's attorney, "you're asking the defendants to defend against employment claims brought by individuals who work for them and not telling them who those individuals are." The reason for anonymity was to protect the workers from employer retaliation.
Although the ruling is a setback, the case was not outright dismissed.
Action 4 Liberty continues to advise people to not put faith in the court system post-COVID. Judges have ruled in favor of tyrannical government and corporate edicts that violate basic personal liberties over and over again. The best course to solve the problem of intrusive vaccine mandates is to pass the Stop Vaccine Mandate Amendment in the upcoming Special Session. Learn more here.
The weather is beginning to change again in Minnesota, and as my neighbors and I make plans for fall festivities, those with power prepare to play political games, and hold our holidays over our heads like treats for good behavior.
Last week, Fauci told the press that he wasn’t sure if we could gather to celebrate this season. On CBS News program “Face the Nation,” Fauci was asked by host Margaret Brennan, “can we gather for Christmas, or is it just too soon to tell?”
“You know, Margaret, it’s just too soon to tell” replied Fauci. “We’ve just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down, and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time.”
The name of the broadcast was befitting of it’s reception, as DC’s Doctor did indeed face the nation. Word of Fauci’s foreshadowing spread quickly, and everyday Americans with an interest in Christmas began to voice their discontent. Radio hosts, grassroots organizations, and even popular journalists were quick to share the comments.
In the days that followed, the doctor that would dictate our decisions began to backpedal, telling his friends at CNN, “that was misinterpreted as my saying we can't spend Christmas with our families, which was absolutely not the case. I will be spending Christmas with my family. I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas.”
Since then, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has taken down a page with holiday COVID-19 guidance, saying that it was old information. The page called for limiting congregation (i.e. ‘no church’), zoom calls with family instead of in-person visits, and standing six feet away from members of the same household.
This isn’t the first time Fauci changed his mind readily on issues of tremendous importance. If his verbiage elsewhere has been any indicator for the 2021 season, we might still have to brace ourselves for another round in the fight for our freedom.
“We certainly are turning a corner on this particular surge,” he stated during an interview on “This Week” on ABC News, "but, we have experienced over now close to 20 months of surges that go up and then come down, and then go back up again.
With this Administration, there’s no real consistency. Like with mask policy, transmission through animals, asymptomatic spreading, and a slew of other so-called serious concerns, there’s no real or clear consensus, and recommended steps can change at a moment's notice.
When asked specifically about gathering on one of Christianity’s most important holidays around this time last year, Fauci told NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell, “to the extent possible, don’t travel, don’t congregate together.” The worst part wasn’t that he recommended it on the government's payroll; the worst was that, on his word, thousands of American lost a year's worth of social interaction, festivities, and family memories.
The message is clear. Do what we tell you, when we tell you, or we will close your businesses, lock you in your home, or find new ways to push the envelope. This is still the same power hungry bureaucrat that called to cancel funerals, baptisms, weddings, and non-corporate commerce, after all.
I, for one, will be celebrating Christmas with family and friends - no matter what Fauci instructs Americans to do.
The Facebook Authoritarians unpublished and banned our popular Action 4 Liberty page this afternoon, citing a violation against their Communist Standards on "graphic violence" - despite not providing details of the alleged violation. There were only two posts submitted today. One was a meme of Bill Murray saying "So, if we lie to the government, it's a felony. If they lie to us, it's politics" and an article from the Daily Caller entitled "Vaccine Mandate Enforcement Threatens To Create A Second Economic Crisis".
Action 4 Liberty posts a lot about fighting against vaccine mandates, which Facebook recently announced it would crack down on. In August, one of our Stop Vaccine Mandates ads was taken down by Facebook that had the potential of reaching one million Minnesotans.
Over the last couple years, we've spent over $50,000 in ads on Facebook to alert voters about important political issues at the Capitol or in their communities. This ban, which likely could be permanent, will interfere with our supporters ability to hear an alternative to the mainstream, COVID narrative. We suspect that's the motivation behind the move.
No one will stop us from doing what we do though. Whether it's the State Fair taking down our "King Walz" sign or a bunch of woke, tech authoritarians in Silicon Valley, Action 4 Liberty will continue leading this fight to protect your liberty. Our field team is out doorknocking right now to Stop Vaccine Mandates in Minnesota. They knocked on nearly 800 doors today. Our team also makes thousands of calls a day to voters throughout the state.
The mission continues!
Walls are closing in on Tim Walz and Joe Biden. Their tyrannical vaccine mandates are growing in unpopularity and are leading to a potentially huge crisis. Even the state's largest public sector union, a huge backer of Democrat politicians, has come out against the vaccine mandates.
In a letter to the Minnesota Senate, AFSME wrote "AFSCME Council 5 does not support a vaccine mandate [...] we understand some people have personal, medical or religious reasons which factor into their individual decision and their decisions should be respected."
As chants of "F Joe Biden" spread across stadiums around the country, a recent poll shows Joe Biden's job approval rating dropping to 38%, a low for the first term president. Walz' own approval ratings seem to follow the same course. A recent Star Tribune poll found that Walz' approval rating fell below 50% as well.
Americans are growingly becoming concerned about the issues with worker shortages, especially as it relates to the health care industry. Vaccine mandates stand to eliminate some of the most critical jobs at the worst time. On top of that, rising prices at the gas pump and grocery store, make the Biden/Walz/Democrat agenda appear to be a failure.
This Tim Walz tweet from January didn't appear to age well

Politicians care about one thing: getting elected. And of course, once that happens, their focus is re-election and election to higher office. You and I know that they will do and say anything to get elected.
So in order to get re-elected, politicians avoid taking controversial positions since those issues are likely to anger a faction of the electorate - even though those positions might help you by protecting your freedom.
It's our job to make sure politicians protect our freedom even if it's controversial, otherwise we will wake up in a country we no longer recognize.
But when you force them to take action, that’s when the dirty tricks are played.
You see, over a month ago, we teamed up with Rep Erik Mortensen and a bunch of healthcare workers to craft the Stop Vaccine Mandates legislationwhich will be used as an amendment on the $250 Million Frontline Workers Pay bill during the upcoming Special Session.
We created a pledge so politicians, starting with Republicans (who are supposed to be on our side for freedom) could sign and show that they support stopping vaccine mandates.
But they all refused, hoping we wouldn’t turn up the heat.
Then Joe Biden doubled down and illegally used the federal government to mandate vaccines. That made Rep Mortensen’s Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment even more important, since it nullifies Biden’s orders.
Our team started hitting the phones a couple weeks ago, thanks to your support, and we’ve contacted tens of thousands of voters across Minnesota about this important issue.
So politicians started scrambling, trying to figure out what to do to respond to this growing movement demanding action.
Instead of locking arms with healthcare workers to save their jobs with the Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment; they instead decided to run a cover bill that doesn't even do what it claims.
And they found a surprising ally to write their bill in an attempt to derail our movement: Dr Scott Jensen.
You heard that right, Jensen teamed up with politicians in St Paul to distract people’s attention from our critical piece of legislation we’ve been pushing for the last month for the upcoming Special Session.
They are trying to undermine the work and money you put into DEMANDING your legislators pass the Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment.
Of course, Jensen copied a lot of what Mortensen’s bill already had in it, but stopped short of actually nullifying Biden’s illegal orders.
Rep. Mortensen explains it here:
What Jensen and politicians in St Paul are doing is giving voters the impression that they are going to do something about the issue.
They will all say now that they won't sign the pledge because they are supporting the "Health Freedom Sanctuary State" bill written by Scott Jensen. But just crafting legislation isn't enough - we must DEMAND action.
That's why Rep Mortensen's Amendment and our pledge is key. Politicians have to take the hard position of not voting for their beloved $250 Million bill unless it has the Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment attached to it.
And we just learned that politicians in St Paul are close to an agreement on the $250 Million bill. The Special Session is right around the corner!
Jensen's gang of Career Politicians in St Paul will tout they have an incredible bill, then will let it die, pass the $250 Million spending bill, blame everything on Democrats, then tell you to vote for them in November of 2022.
Ever seen this trick before? I sure have. Don't let them get away with it!!!
We would've loved to have Jensen join our efforts, but it appears he valued a quick political win and helping out his politician buddies more than winning this important issue.
Even worse, he wrote the bill and had RINO legislators like Jim Abeler author it, someone who has refused to sign the Stop Vaccine Mandates pledge. Abeler even admitted his close friendship with Dept of Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm, the person behind the attacks on our beloved small businesses. Abeler is the reason Malcolm was never fired!
Some of you probably already knew Jensen was a RINO politician who refuses to sign the Never Again Pledge, has a terrible 23% lifetime rating on our Scorecard, and refused to make a motion on the End Walz' Emergency Powers resolution during the May 2020 lockdown.
But others are probably upset to hear about this. After all, Jensen talks a good game about COVID. But he is a politician and remember the first part of this email...
Politicians care about one thing: getting elected.
That's the sad reality of politics. But we refuse to quit or allow this issue to be derailed by politicians.
You and I have been here before with politicians playing games.
Politicians tried to derail us for over a year on the effort to End Walz' Emergency Powers. From the Republicans not allowing votes, to Democrats flip flopping once their vote actually counted, to leadership jumping the line to block Mortensen's resolutions.
But we WON in the end because they can't stop 'We The People'.
This battle is no different.
We MUST DEMAND that our state representatives and state senators do not agree to pass the $250 Million Frontline Workers Pay bill unless it includes the Rep Erik Mortensen's Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendmentwith it.
This is the best shot we have at NULLIFYING BIDEN'S ORDERS!!!
Rep Erik Mortensen's Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment would make Biden's order unenforceable in Minnesota. We MUST get this passed!
Just as we were able to win on ending the emergency in June (otherwise we'd have a lockdown and mask mandates now), we have to let our legislators know we will accept nothing less than the Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment.
And if you see Scott Jensen on the campaign trail, tell him to apologize for choosing to help a bunch of career politicians instead of joining you and the masses of healthcare workers, activists and voters who are trying to pass the Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment!

Yesterday – for the first time in over a year – A Minnesota judge shut down an attempt to reenact Governor Walz’ peacetime emergency, citing a “separation of powers”.
In his late-night Tuesday ruling, Ramsey County District Court Judge Thomas Gilligan denied left-wing activists their request to implement a new statewide mask mandate. He wrote that “… the judiciary cannot order a co-equal branch of government to exercise its discretionary, political judgement to implement a specific education policy.”
It’s good to know that Judge Gilligan recognizes a separation of powers, because Governor Walz sure doesn’t. He just got off an eighteen month-long power trip, creating law out of thin air!
Of course, these judges did nothing to defend the system of checks and balances enshrined in the Minnesota Constitution back then. We cannot expect them to defend us when Walz implements mandatory vaccinations for all Minnesotans!
It’s time you and I demand our legislators stand up for our liberties.
Luckily, our team has a plan to stop vaccine mandates in Minnesota, but we cannot do it without your help!
Step 1 - Unify all Republicans in the Minnesota House and Senate on not passing the $250 Million Frontline Workers Pay Bill unless it has Rep Erik Mortensen's Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment attached to it. We must get the Party of freedom on board first. They should ALL sign the pledge.
Step 2 - Create overwhelming political pressure on Walz and vulnerable Democrats to sign on and pass the legislation. We just did that in June to End Walz' Emergency Powers!
