Walz Says Middle School and High School Students Can Return on Monday

Governor Walz held a noon press conference announcing that middle school and high school students can return to school starting Monday, Feb 22nd. Citing dropping numbers of COVID cases due, in his words, to "masking", Walz stated that students can "safely" return to the classroom.

According to the government's own figures, Minnesota has no COVID deaths of children between the age of 10-19, which is the ages that make up middle and high school students. Kindergarten through 5th grade students across the state have already been back to school for a good portion of 2021.

Despite schools reopening, businesses mostly back to normal and COVID cases at extremely low levels, Governor Walz continues to hold on to his Emergency Powers. It's time for the Legislature to take back its power of lawmaking from Walz for good.


Blood on Their Hands, The Nursing Home Scandals of Governors Cuomo & Walz

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is on the cusp of losing his Emergency Powers after it was revealed that his Administration lied about the numbers of COVID deaths attributed to long term care facilities. Although the overall state death toll numbers were accurate, the issue that is creating tensions in the political ranks in New York is that the underreporting of nursing home related deaths led to the continuation of the Cuomo policy that allowed COVID positive patients to return to the facilities with our country's most at-risk group of people.

While New York was admitting patients back into nursing homes, the Walz administration was doing the same thing here in Minnesota. In fact, earlier in the pandemic, 80% of COVID related deaths were coming from long term care facilities. And Walz just allowed them to go right in.

On March 25th, Governor Walz issued a statewide order that quarantined healthy young people in their homes. He also shut down large portions of our economy and infringed on religious rights by prohibiting churches from gathering. On top of that, he shut down schools until the end of the school year. Citing a policy of "15 days to slow the spread", with an objective to save the more at-risk populations, the media praised Walz for his actions. To this day, there have been no COVID deaths among the 10-19 year old age group in Minnesota. However, there is skyrocketing levels of depression and suicide.

While the economy was crashing and thousands of Minnesotans were losing the businesses they put their lives into creating, we knew that our elderly population was the most at-risk demographic, especially those who were in nursing homes which have a median lifespan of just under 6 months. Both Cuomo and Walz shut down their state economies under the guise of stopping young people from spreading the virus to grandma and grandpa. After all, if college students met for a beer, caught the virus, then went to see grandma, we'd have a real issue.

Meanwhile, the policy of moving COVID positive patients into nursing homes continued on. Walz even doubled down and stated on May 27th that it "was not a mistake" to transfer patients from hospitals to the long term care facilities. He eventually shut down Minnesota's economy again in mid November and banned us from visiting other people's homes. Once again, his rationale for the policy was to stop young, asymptomatic individuals from spreading the virus to the elderly. To this date, nearly 70% of all Minnesota deaths still come from nursing homes.

Although Walz' COVID response lacks a high profile admission of "fudging the numbers", the fact remains that Walz and Cuomo's policy were the same and had terrible results for our country's most vulnerable community. But they used their self-declared powers along the way to destroy businesses and harm the mental health of our youth. Now we are approaching the one year anniversary of Walz' unilateral declaration of emergency powers and he has no intention of giving them up.

Action 4 Liberty continues to lead the fight in Minnesota to End Walz' Emergency Powers. Learn what we are doing to solve it. Simply put, we MUST stop Walz' assault on our civil liberties and our economy; and restore our democratic process where the legislature creates the laws in this state, not one man.


Video: Mask Cult Loses Its Mind When Seeing Maskless Group

A video capturing a group of maskless individuals shopping at Trader Joes is going viral because of the heated confrontation they encountered with the mask cult. Masked do-gooders are seen throughout the video yelling, screaming and even getting physically aggressive with the cameraman. At one point, an individual may have even been assaulted in the parking lot after leaving the premise.

There appears to be a growing trend of violence directed at people who choose to not participate in the political theater of universal mask wearing. In Maplewood, a man was charged for second degree assault when he brought a gun into a gym.  Cult member, Michael Florhaugafter, grew angry at gym members who weren't properly masking up, so he pointed a gun on at the gym manager.

Violent rhetoric isn't a foreign concept to us. Action 4 Liberty has received violent threats from people based on our public position against the Mask Mandate Bill making its way through the Minnesota House. The mask cult is convinced that those of us who do not wear masks, or advocate against mask policies, are directly causing the death of people. Which is understandable when you see the lies they are being fed by the government and the mainstream media. But even the government's own figures don't back that up.

At a distance of 6 feet, the exposure risk of two maskless individuals is a mere 3%. And that's just exposure risk. If one individual does not have COVID, than the risk is 0%. 

The survival rate of COVID amongst age groups is even more fascinating. In Minnesota, there have been no deaths associated with COVID for people between the age of 10 and 19. For people who have tested positive for COVID under 50, there is a 99.96% survivor rate.  So in other words, at 6 ft distance, there's a 3% chance of exposure, if a person exhaling had COVID, for a disease that if you aren't in a high risk class, will not kill or severely harm you. 

What is effective in stopping the spread of COVID is social distancing. Which is not something that was practiced well by the mask cult in the video since they wanted to get physically aggressive.

Don't believe us? Even Governor Walz knows that masks serve little purpose at a distance of 6 feet.

Action 4 Liberty believes in freedom, which is why we strongly oppose government mask mandates. For those people, especially in more vulnerable demographics, who want to be extremely risk adverse, they should have every right to wear a mask. But to force our youth who are playing sports or our population who will fare just fine from COVID to cover their face, politicians are proposing a ridiculous, over-reaching government policy that must be defeated.

14 Democrats in New York Senate Want to End Cuomo's Emergency Powers

14 Democrats in the New York Senate are calling for an end to Governor Cuomo's Emergency Powers for the handling and misrepresentation of his COVID response. A top aide to the Governor revealed that the Cuomo Administration withheld data from the public and the federal government related to nursing home deaths. Several are blaming Cuomo for the deaths of the elderly in those facilities. If you remember, Governor Walz had a similar policy of putting COVID positive patients in long term care facilities.

The group of Democrat senators are calling for an expedited repeal of Cuomo's powers, which are due to expire on April 30th. They issued a joint statement:

Without exception, the New York State Constitution calls for the Legislature to govern as a co-equal branch of government. While COVID-19 has tested the limits of our people and state-- and, early during the pandemic, required the government to restructure decision making to render rapid, necessary public health judgements-- it is clear that the expanded emergency powers granted to the Governor are no longer appropriate.

Meanwhile in Minnesota, vulnerable Democrats like Rep Julie Sandstede (DFL-Hibbing) are betraying the trust of their voters and protecting Governor Walz' Emergency Powers. Sandstede has made numerous references recently to "restoring the co-equal branch of government", but so far has fell short of voting to restore our democratic process. It appears she is more radical than a New York Democrat.

To her east and south, Reps Dave Lislegard and Mike Sundin have also joined in allowing Governor Walz' Emergency Powers to continue despite the incredible abuse and damage he's left to our economy and young adults who have been forced into two lockdowns in the 11 months of Walz' "emergency".

The legislature has shown that it can function during the pandemic. Legislators are meeting regularly right now virtually to conduct business and have already passed legislation this year. The idea that the Governor needs to hold on to his Emergency Powers any longer is ridiculous; even dangerous. Some experts warn that the "worst days" lie ahead of us, which suggest Walz will shutdown our economy for a third time and force our youth into a third lockdown.

Action 4 Liberty Is Going Directly to Their Voters

We deployed a team of doorknockers and operators up north to reach out to every voter in the districts of these vulnerable Democrats. After a little over a week of door knocking, our data suggests that politicians like Julie Sandstede are out of step with her constituents. We're talking with hundreds of voters every day, growing our database, and asking folks to contact their legislator. 

Our team doesn't have it easy, by the way. Here's this morning's weather report for Hibbing:

But that won't stop us from talking to every voter in these districts. Politicians like Julie Sandstede can continue voting worse than a New York Democrat, but she'll never get re-elected again. It's time politicians like her do the right thing, and End Walz' Emergency Powers once and for all.

Rep Sandstede Dances Around Votes on Ending Walz' Emergency Powers

Facing an abundance of questions from constituents on her virtual townhall, Rep Julie Sandstede danced around why she voted to End Walz' Emergency Powers last year (election year), then reneged on that this year when her vote was critical to restore our democratic process. At one point, Sandstede stated that it wasn't the emergency powers that were the issue, but the executive orders issued by the Governor that were a concern. But she failed to offer a solution to Walz' gross abuse of power and stated she spoke to the Governor about possibly ending powers by May 1st. In her words, he wouldn't commit to that.

The Virtual Townhall was flooded with questions by End Walz' Emergency Powers petitions signers. Julie appeared visibly nervous responding to them.

Governor Walz has unilaterally declared emergency powers for 11 months now. His powers were used to quarantine health people in their homes, forbid families to gather during Thanksgiving, shut down large portions of our economy, and force youth athletes to wear masks while playing sports. Walz has hijacked the democratic process by issuing unilateral orders and is engaging in the most anti-democratic practice ever seen in the state. And Julie Sandstede is protecting him.

What We Are Doing About It

We rented a home, hired additional operators, and deployed our field team up in the Hibbing area to go door to door to tell every voter in Rep Julie Sandstede's district about how she betrayed them and voted to protect Governor Walz' Emergency Powers. You see, when it was easy last year, Con Artist Julie voted the right way. But now when her vote matters and the election is over, she opted to protect Governor Walz instead of protect the liberties of her constituents.

As you probably already know, doorknocking hasn't been easy this week. Temperatures are dipping below -20 degrees. But with extra wood for the fireplace and a bundle of hand warmers, our team isn't missing a beat. They already knocked on hundreds of doors in the first two days, found new supporters of our cause, and most likely, educated people who voted for Julie last November. She has a real problem on her hand if she keeps betraying them!

Julie clearly does not support Democracy. Allowing one man to have the power to create unilateral orders that shut down businesses and quarantine us in our homes, is the anti-thesis of a democracy. Because she is protecting Walz, we are now faced with the prospects of a Mask Mandate Bill which is making its way through the Minnesota House. 

Action 4 Liberty refuses to let our Constitutional Republic fall because one man declares and endless emergency due to a virus. Our system of government was never designed to allow this to happen. And we will fight everyday to make sure we End Governor Walz' Emergency Powers. Support our field operations and let's take back our state!


Republicans and Democrats Wasting Time in Committee Crafting Fake End Walz' Power Bill

Every Friday, Republicans and Democrats waste our time learning about the history of the Governor's Emergency Powers and "working" on crafting a Fake End Walz' Powers Bill in a Committee led by Con Artist, Gene Pelowski. Essentially any bill that passes the committee with support from both parties, would still have to pass the Democrat House, Republican Senate and be signed by the Governor. As you can imagine, any bill that actually takes his powers away, would be quickly vetoed by Governor Walz. They are wasting our time!

Rep Barb Haley, who is the chief author of one of the Fake End Walz' Powers bills, even admitted her bill would not end the Governor's power. So what's the point in this political game show they are running every Friday? At this rate, they are only giving Minnesotans false hope that the issue will be resolved by their efforts.

It will not!

What needs to happen is a team effort by all Republicans to increase the pain on the Democrats until they restore our Constitutional Republic by Ending Walz' Emergency Powers. Republicans in the Senate should fire Walz' commissioners, starting with small business assassin, Jan Malcolm. House and Senate Republicans should also refuse to pass any budget (especially one that funds Walz' executive department) until their legislative powers are restored. And, House Republicans should get on board with Rep Erik Mortensen's Articles of Impeachment to hold Walz accountable for his violations of our Constitution and civil liberties.

The time for "politics as usual" has past. We are losing our system of government because Governor Walz has held unilateral, emergency powers for 11 months. He has shut down businesses, quarantined health people in their homes, mandated mask wearing, shut schools down and is forcing youth athletes to wear face coverings while playing sports. He MUST BE STOPPED!

To End Walz' Emergency Powers now, only four Democrats in the House are needed to vote on Rep Mortensen's Resolution. Action 4 Liberty is ramping up the pressure against vulnerable rural Democrats by going directly to their voters. Learn more about our field operations.


Government's Test Shows Ridiculousness of Mask Mandate

We're constantly being lectured by the government and media about the "science" of mask wearing. It's given birth to a new mask shaming cult who claim moral superiority over those of us who choose not to engage in the political theater of universal mask wearing. After all, if masks save lives, then those who don't wear them, are killers. We've already received those messages here at Action 4 Liberty, by the way.

But the science is not on the government's side. We have to look no further than the evidence they presented in the Health Finance & Policy Committee last Tuesday to prove that point. 

Here's what we do know. Masks have utility at close distances. This is precisely why surgeons and dentists have worn masks for years before the pandemic. There are germs and viruses that can pass onto others by water droplets, and at close range, a mask can act as a barrier from those droplets getting on another person. 

We also know that social distancing is the best method of preventing the spread of viruses. Kiss your spouse when he/she has a cold, you know what's going to happen. But if you remained in another room from them until their cold is gone, you'd be fine. 

When the government's testifier, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Minnesota, showed test results of the effectiveness of a mask, we saw clear evidence that the Mask Mandate policy is nothing more than a ridiculous, risk-adverse policy that has no place in our book of statutes.

At a distance of 6 feet, the exposure risk of two maskless individuals is a mere 3%. And that's just exposure risk. If one individual does not have COVID, than the risk is 0%. Imagine adopting a universal policy with those kinds of statistics. 

Even more important, when we break down the survival rate of COVID amongst age groups, there's nearly a 100% survival rate among children and young adults. So in other words, at 6 ft distance, there's a 3% chance of exposure, if a person exhaling had COVID, for a disease that has a 99.9% survival rate. 

Despite our current mask mandate, quarantining of health individuals, shutdown of business, etc, COVID has still managed to spread amongst our population in Minnesota. In fact, there's really no grand, statistical difference between our surrounding states who share a lot of similarities in culture, climate, and in the case of Wisconsin, population. Clearly, Governor Walz and the bureaucrats in our government have zero idea how to stop COVID.

Even Governor Walz knows that masks serve little purpose at a distance of 6 feet.

Action 4 Liberty believes in freedom, which is why we strongly oppose government mask mandates. For those people, especially in more vulnerable demographics, who want to be extremely risk adverse, they should have every right to wear a mask. But to force our youth who are playing sports or our population who will fare just fine from COVID to cover their face, politicians are proposing a ridiculous, over-reaching government policy that must be defeated.

Field Team Knocks Hundreds of Doors in First Two Days

We rented a home, hired additional operators, and deployed our field team up in the Hibbing area to go door to door to tell every voter in Rep Julie Sandstede's district about how she betrayed them and voted to protect Governor Walz' Emergency Powers. You see, when it was easy last year, Con Artist Julie voted the right way.

Mask Mandate Bill Gets Laid Over, Possible Inclusion in Larger Bill

The Mask Mandate Bill, HF604, was heard in the Health Finance & Policy Committee this afternoon. A group of of testifiers representing the Government's Health experts and the Medical Establishment spoke in favor of the legislation. Opponents of the bill included Twila Brase of Citizens Council for Health Freedom and several Minnesotans speaking out against the assault of the bill on personal freedoms.

After a lengthy committee meeting that lasted for nearly three hours, the bill was laid over for possible inclusion in a larger, omnibus bill. 

Here's How We Are Killing the Mask Mandate

Action 4 Liberty just deployed a team up north into the districts of vulnerable Democrats. We hired a full time team of doorknockers and activists who will talk to every voter and find every supporter who shares our view to STOP the Mask Mandate Bill and End Walz' Emergency Powers for good.

Our team will stand on street corners holding signs. They'll organize protests and build a larger activist footprint in their districts. And they'll meet with business owners impacted by Walz' orders and engage them in this fight. 

We will continue taking our message directly to voters in these vulnerable Democrats' districts. They either get on board, kill the Mask Mandate Bill and End Walz' Emergency Powers, or we'll make sure they don't get re-elected in 2022!

Mask Mandate Bill Gets Hearing in Health Committee on Tuesday

ALERT: The Health Finance & Policy Committee will be hearing the Mask Mandate Bill (HF604) on Tuesday at 3:00 PM.

As you may recall, last week a group of legislators introduced a bill in the Minnesota House that would make Governor Walz' mask mandate into permanent law. It would require you and me to wear a face covering anytime we are in a public building or business and it would fine us for noncompliance. Business owners who don't comply - well, they face up to 90 days of jail time.

This bill just mirrors what Governor Walz decreed already last summer. But unlike his illegal, unconstitutional and unilateral dictate, this would codify things into law. 

It's becoming more clear by the day what these politicians really want - more power over us. 

What Can You Do?

Rep John Huot will face a tough election in 2022 and is the Vice Chair of the Committee tomorrow. Tell him to STOP the Mask Mandate Bill, HF604. Governor Walz and the Legislature have no business forcing Minnesotans to cover their faces!

We Are Holding Vulnerable Democrats Accountable

Action 4 Liberty just deployed a team up north into Reps Julie Sandstede and Dave Lislegard's districts. We hired a full time team of doorknockers and activists who will talk to every voter and find every supporter who shares our view to STOP the Mask Mandate Bill and End Walz' Emergency Powers for good.

Our team will stand on street corners holding signs. They'll organize protests and build a larger activist footprint in their districts. And they'll meet with business owners impacted by Walz' orders and engage them in this fight. 

Temperatures in Hibbing this morning were -29, but that isn't stopping our team from getting out and talking with voters. They're just wearing an extra couple layers of clothing.

We will continue taking our message directly to voters in these vulnerable Democrats' districts. They either get on board, kill the Mask Mandate Bill and End Walz' Emergency Powers, or we'll make sure they don't get re-elected in 2022!

If you're looking for other ways to help, consider contributing to our firewood fund. I never imagined I'd be asking people to pay for wood, but we need to keep our rental home well heated for our team. And the temps are dangerously cold this week. 

Help heat the home for a week with a donation of $100. If that's too steep, $50 heats the home for 3-4 days. Want to help even more, consider a one time donation of $1,000 to help deploy another guy on the ground with lit pieces for a week!
