Governors' Vaccine Ultimatums and Incentives Programs Revealed, Based on NYT Survey

A New York Times survey published on May 4th appears to explain the psychology behind the vaccine manipulation rolled out by far left Governors like Tim Walz and Ohio Republican Governor Mike DeWine. In the case of DeWine, the Ohio Dept of Health created a vaccine lottery program that pays five Ohioans a prize of one million dollars after they receive a vaccination. The NYT survey found that people are 34% more likely to get vaccinated if there is a $100 financial incentive attached to it.

In states like Minnesota, where Governor Tim Walz has continued a mask mandate and seems unwilling to relinquish his Emergency Powers, his major obstacle is how to incentivize Republicans. The survey suggests that an ultimatum is the best approach to getting Republicans to get stabbed in the arm. There's an 18 percent change in "eagerness" by Republicans to get vaccinated if it leads to them no longer having to wear a mask.

Walz' approach mimics the same strategy employed by Biden. Here's the President's tweet following yesterday's CDC guidance.

It's clear that these Power Hungry Executives are going to do everything in their power to manipulate us into getting the vaccine. This inevitably means that a vaccine passport program will be established in order to determine who is in compliance. Whether through financial incentives (in the case of DeWine) or a mask ultimatum (Walz), the government is going to do everything in its power to know if you are getting stabbed in the arm.

That's why it's critically important that Republican Senators refuse to cut a deal with Walz and pass his budget without passing the Never Again Bill. It's the only way to completely strip Walz of his power and ensure a vaccine passport program is not implemented in Minnesota.

The Birth of Vaccine Passports: Biden Says "Get Vaccinated or Wear Mask"

Joe Biden just tweeted what appears to be the birth of a vaccine passport program. The CDC revealed that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask. So Biden went on Twitter stating an ultimatum: get vaccinated or continue wearing masks. But how will this be enforced?

If there's any muscle behind the no-mask policy, it would require validation of our vaccinations. States like Minnesota still have a mask mandate in place via Governor Walz' unilateral executive order. And since the Minnesota legislature is on the cusp of adjourning, there's little standing in the way of Governor Walz implementing a vaccine passport program to comply with Biden's suggestion. 

That's why it's critically important that Republican Senators refuse to cut a deal with Walz and pass his budget without passing the Never Again Bill. It's the only way to completely strip Walz of his power and ensure a vaccine passport program is not implemented in Minnesota.

Governor DeWine, Walz' Republican Twin, Creates Million Dollar Prize for Getting Vaccine

Woke, Republican Governor of Ohio, Mike Dewine, took to Twitter today to announce a new taxpayer funded program that gives one million prizes to five Ohioans who get the vaccine. Teenagers also can enter the program labeled a "lottery" with the chance of winning a four year tuition scholarship to a state university including room and board. DeWine will use funding from the Federal Coronavirus Relief Funds to pay for the expensive program. 

Power hungry governors like DeWine and Walz are likely to start resorting to gimmicks like a lottery or a vaccine passport program to force more citizens into getting the Covid vaccine. After high risk and the elderly received their doses, several states have witnessed a drop in people willing to get the vaccine. It's unclear why it's necessary for young, healthy individuals to get the vaccine for public safety reasons. And the credibility of these governors has dwindled in the 14 unprecedented months of unchecked Emergency Powers. 

In Minnesota, Action 4 Liberty is leading the fight to End Governor Walz' Emergency Powers and make sure it Never Happens Again. There are only 5 days left of the legislative session. If Republicans in the Senate cut a deal with Walz and pass his budget without passing the Never Again Bill, there's no guarantee that vaccine passports or a lottery program doesn't come to Minnesota via executive order.

Senate Republicans to Defy Walz' Mask Mandate in Senate Chamber

Senate Republicans are poised to remove a mask wearing policy in the Senate chambers in defiance of Governor Walz' universal mask mandate. KTOE quotes Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, “We are gonna allow everybody to be back on the Senate floor in your normal seat, if you want to.  So we’re not gonna require it, but if you want to you may, and masks will be optional.”

Walz announced last week that he is extending his Emergency Powers for the summer, and may eventually remove the mask mandate in July, despite COVID cases dropping significantly and 60% of Minnesotans being vaccinated. It's crystal clear that the Governor is inappropriately using his Emergency Powers to garner a better budget deal with Republicans.

The Senate's defiance of the Governor's order is excellent. If politicians at the Capitol are not following the orders, businesses in Minnesota should also be relieved of enforcement actions by Walz' Dept of Health.

Unfortunately, Senate Republicans aren't going hard enough in the paint. Gazelka is meeting behind closed doors with Tim Walz right now, on the cusp of passing a $54 Billion budget which would fund Walz' government agencies. Several businesses in Minnesota are currently under attack by the Attorney General and the Dept of Health for alleged violations of Walz' unilateral orders. That's why its critically important that Gazelka and Senate Republicans REFUSE to pass a budget until the Never Again Bill is passed. It's the only way to ensure that Walz' Emergency Powers come to an end and the people of Minnesota are spared from further assaults on their liberties.

Governor Candidate Mike Marti Signs Never Again Pledge

A new candidate entered the race for Governor to oust Tim Walz today. His name is Mike Marti. He's a business owner, husband, father and comes from Greater Minnesota (Rocks and Cows territory according to Walz). Most importantly, Mike just signed the Never Again Pledge today pledging to the people of Minnesota to make passing the Never Again Bill his top priority and calling upon the Legislature to not pass a budget until it is passed into law!

Thank you Mike Marti for pledging to stop the tyranny and ensure it Never Happens Again. He joins Mayor Mike Murphy who also signed the same pledge. Scott Jensen still refuses to sign the Never Again Pledge. 

 


Walz Just Said He's Keeping the Mask Mandate

Governor Walz is a tyrant. He believes he is above the law. And his so-called plan to "follow the science" is the biggest con ever played on Minnesota. There's no science suggesting masks have any utility in stopping the spread of COVID outdoors, but he continues on with his unilateral mandate.

Today Walz dialed up our allowable freedoms when he mentioned that there is a path later this summer to remove COVID restrictions. In other words, he is keeping his Emergency Powers and continuing to force you to wear a mask.

Walz' Unilateral Emergency Powers are a huge problem because the judicial system in Minnesota has thrown out our Constitution and enforced Walz' illegal orders in the courts. It's created legal nightmares for people like Jane, Lisa, and Larvita. And it's put Lisa Hanson in handcuffs. In order to STOP our government and judicial system from infringing on our rights any longer, it's critically important to pass the Never Again Bill immediately!

Unfortunately, weak Republicans at the Capitol are not putting up an iron wall against Walz' tyrannical powers. In response to Walz' announcement today, Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka said "My reaction today is simple: Not good enough and not soon enough. The emergency is over and the mandates need to end . . . The Governor continues to lead alone, ignoring our suggestions and the suggestions of the businesses and medical community to find any compromise- especially on the mask mandate."

But what is Gazelka actually doing for Minnesotans to stop Walz? Just two days ago he released the Republicans demands about the state budget and failed to list passing the Never Again Bill as one of the items. He didn't even call for Ending Walz' Emergency Powers. This is outrageous!

Gazelka and Senate Republicans MUST REFUSE to pass a budget with Democrats until the Never Again Bill is passed so Walz' Emergency Powers are terminated for good. If they don't, then the legislature will adjourn for the summer with Walz' powers intact and our rights continually violated. 

It's critically important that you contact your state senator immediately. Demand he or she does not vote for a final budget until the Never Again Bill is passed. We can't let Governor Walz continue his Unilateral Emergency Powers forever.

Gazelka Budget: Grows Government by Whopping $4.2 Billion

Republican Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka's proposed budget would grow state spending by a whopping $4.2 Billion or a 9% increase. Republicans kept their majority in the Minnesota Senate, but seem disinterested in actually reducing the size and scope of government according to their proposal. Even more disturbing, the Senate Republican's largest line item increase is funding for the Minnesota Department of Health - the agency that is targeting our small businesses and illegally enforcing Walz' unilateral orders. The Senate budget increases the department by $2.5 Billion or 18%.

Their budget, which has already passed the state senate, is the starting point of negotiations with Governor Walz and radical House Democrats. And the Governor's budget isn't that much more than their proposal. Meaning we, taxpayers, are already losing big time on this one.

If state spending was a football field, the Senate Republicans would be within field goal distance of the higher spending end zone. In fact, their proposals' price tag is nearly on par with the Governor's, although the Governor's plan would actually increase taxes, therefore taking more money out of the private sector, which is a ridiculous proposition when the state is running a surplus. Also, both Republicans and Democrats want to keep a massive Budget Reserves Account which is another $1.9 Billion sitting in a government account for future spending. So technically, Gazelka and Senate Republicans' budget is closer to $54 Billion.

What Gazelka and Senate Republicans should be promoting is a budget that cuts government and they should REFUSE to negotiate a final deal with Democrats until the Never Again Bill is passed. That's the only way to ensure that Governor Walz' Emergency Powers are terminated for good and we stop him from issuing permanent mask mandates or implementing a vaccine passport program. 

Just yesterday, Gazelka publicized the Senate's list of budget demands, and Ending Walz' Emergency Powers by passing the Never Again Bill wasn't on it. In fact, under Gazelka's list, the Governor would retain his powers going into the summer while the legislature would not be in session. This is a tremendous sell out by Gazelka!

Contact your state senator and tell him or her "No budget deals with Democrats until the Never Again Bill is signed into law"!

Gazelka, Senate Republicans Prioritize Health Insurance Bailouts Over Never Again Bill

Senate Republican Majority Leader Paul Gazelka held a lackluster press conference this afternoon where he listed the top priorities for Republicans in the budget negotiations. Absent from the list was the Never Again Bill that would eliminate Governor Walz' Unilateral Emergency Powers. In fact, Senate Republicans priorities don't actually include removing Walz' powers.

Instead, Gazelka stated that the Senate caucus wanted certain Emergency Executive Orders repealed such as the eviction moratorium and restrictions on businesses. However, once the a budget is voted in and the legislature adjourns, nothing would stop Governor Walz from reissuing the same exact orders.

The Never Again Bill would change that because it changes state law so that the Governor would no longer have the ability to declare an emergency by himself. It's quite clear at this point, that we are no longer in a state of an emergency. So why on earth would Governor Walz get to keep these powers that he has abused many times over the past 14 months? This is a massive sellout by Gazelka and Senate Republicans.

Gazelka and team failed to put the Never Again Bill in their list of priorities, but they did put another round of bailouts for the Health Insurance companies in it (called Reinsurance). That plan takes your tax dollars and gives it to insurance companies on claims over $50,000. So much for the Party of free markets. It's a plan that has also been endorsed by far left Senator Amy Klobuchar

Paul Gazelka is selling us out! Don't let him cut a final deal with Democrats unless the Never Again Bill is passed. This is the only way to ensure that Walz' Emergency Powers are terminated!

Senate Republicans 'Lights On' Bill is Massive Sell Out

Paul Gazelka and Senate Republicans claim they will be passing a "Lights On" bill to avoid a government shutdown in the case negotiations break down between them and the Democrats. But this supposed "solution" is actually a massive compromise towards the liberal agenda, which will fund most of Governor Walz' budget. In other words, those of us who are calling for "No Deals until Walz' Powers are Terminated" are being sold out by the Senate Republicans.

Instead of getting tough on reducing government spending, Gazelka and the Republicans are going to use the recent budget forecast figures which grow state spending by $3 Billion or 7%. Passing this "Lights On" bill would then fully fund the Attorney General's office and MN Dept of Health, who are currently abusing power and targeting business owners like Lisa Hanson for opening up back in December.

Passing the "Lights On" bill will take all the pressure off of Walz and radical Democrats. They'll have most of their priorities funded, so it gives up a tremendous amount of the Republicans bargaining power. 

Action 4 Liberty calls upon Paul Gazelka and Senate Republicans to make no deals, pass no budget until Governor Walz' Emergency Powers are terminated and the Never Again Bill is signed into law! It's time we get our government back and stopping funding Governor Walz' agencies until their powers are removed.

Lisa Hanson Arrested Today

Lisa Hanson, the owner of the Interchange Bistro in Albert Lea, was arrested today following a court order stemming from her defiance of Governor Walz' Emergency Orders. She was on vacation in Clear Lake, IA and was arrested by local police after receiving a tip from a person in her hometown. Lisa posted bond and is already free. 

This marks the first person to be criminally prosecuted by Governor Walz' administration and the first business owner arrested who refused to follow orders. At the time of her defiance, Iowa was wide open for business just 20 miles south of Albert Lea.

Action 4 Liberty will do a Facebook Live tonight at 8:30 pm to provide more details about the arrest and the case.
