Man Wins Miss Netherlands Pageant, Will Compete for Miss Universe Title

The craziness of the Trans movement continues. A man who dresses up as a woman just won the Miss Netherlands 2023 Pageant, beating out a stage full of real women.

Following his victory, Rikkie Valerie Kolle wrote on Instagram, "I DID IT !!!!! Yes I'm trans and I want to share my story but I'm also Rikkie and that's what matters to me."

Kolle will now be representing the Netherlands at the Miss Universe pageant later this year in El Salvador. You can imagine how the media and left wing politicians around the globe will be giddy to see him win the competition. There will likely be very little protest from liberal feminist groups despite how this charade is a big step back for the women's movement.


Nation’s Most Extreme Gun Ban Could Come To Minnesota

Massachusetts Democrats are ramming through what could be the nation’s most extreme gun control law. Introduced this week, HD 4420 places bans and restrictions on an incredible amount of firearms. With a trifecta in St. Paul, Minnesota Democrats are sure to copy this legislation come next session.

Here are the specifics:

  • BANS nearly every semi-automatic firearm for civilians.
  • MANDATES “safe storage” lockers.
  • MANDATES universal gun registration.
  • REQUIRES privately made firearms to be registered within 7 days of being built.
  • BANS anyone under 15 from participating in shooting sports

And so much more.

This is probably the most extreme anti-gun legislation in the country. If passed, you already know that Democrat Governor Tim Walz will rally his troops here in Minnesota to do the same. Luckily for gun owners, the legislature does not meet again until 2024. 

Democrats already passed Red Flag Gun Seizure legislation and Universal Background Checks this year. There are so many more infringements on their bucket list.

Judge BLOCKS Biden White House from Further 1st Amendment Infringements

A United States District Court has blocked the Biden White House from continuing to infringe on the First Amendment rights of conservative groups online. As revealed in the Twitter Files, White House officials went to social media companies like Facebook to censor material they concluded was misinformation. Amongst the targeted speech was information about the side effects of the experimental COVID vaccines, which led Action 4 Liberty to lose it's popular Facebook page and a Facebook group we managed that had over 50,000 people dedicated to health freedom. 

The ruling is over 150 pages long and uses stern language directed at federal officials in what the Court considers "the most massive attack against free speech in United States' history." According to the judge, the Biden White House "blatantly ignored the First Amendment's right to free speech" when targeting primarily conservative social media users, like Action 4 Liberty.

Missouri AG Andrew Bailey and Louisiana AG Jeff Landry brought the suit against the Biden White House in front of the United State District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. The Court granted the motion to block Biden Administration officials from continuing to infringe on the rights of citizens.

“We filed this landmark lawsuit against dozens of officials in the federal government to stop the biggest violation of the First Amendment in our nation's history, and today’s court order is a huge win for the right to freely speak without government censorship,” said Attorney General Bailey. “We must build a wall of separation between tech and state to preserve our First Amendment right to free, fair, and open debate. Missouri will continue to lead the way in the fight to defend our most fundamental freedoms.”

In a press release on July 5th, the Missouri Attorney General's office detailed this list of findings:

  • “[V]irtually all of the free speech suppressed was conservative free speech.”
  • At least 22 times, the White House engaged in “unrelenting pressure” against tech companies. “White House Defendants engaged in coercion to induce social-media companies to suppress free speech.” “The White House Defendants made it very clear to social-media companies what they wanted suppressed and what they wanted amplified. Faced with unrelenting pressure from the most powerful office in the world, the social-media companies apparently complied.”
  • “[T]he Hunter Biden laptop story was real, and not mere Russian disinformation,” and the “FBI’s failure to alert social-media companies” to this fact “is particularly troubling” after the FBI had falsely suggested to social-media companies that the Hunter Biden laptop story was fake. “After the Hunter Biden laptop story broke on October 14, 2020, [FBI agent Laura] Dehmlow refused to comment on the status of the Hunter Biden laptop in response to a direct inquiry from Facebook, although the FBI had the laptop in its possession since December 2019.”
  • Facebook suppressed information at the demand of the White House, the FBI, and other federal agents even though the information “did not violate Facebook’s policies” and thus ordinarily would not have been suppressed. “Facebook noted that in response to White House demands, it was censoring, removing, and reducing the virality of content discouraging vaccines ‘that does not contain actionable misinformation.’”
  • Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki issued a “threat of ‘legal consequences’” to social media companies “if they do not censor misinformation more aggressively.”
  • After President Biden accused social media companies of “killing people,” Facebook emailed the Surgeon General to say “it’s not great to be accused of killing people” and to say Facebook was “keen to find a way to deescalate.” Social media platforms then met with the Surgeon General. “After the meetings with social-media platforms, the platforms seemingly fell in line with the Office of Surgeon General’s and White House’s requests.”
  • The “motivation” of Dr. Anthony Fauci and other defendants was specifically “a ‘take down’ of protected free speech.” 
  • The Department of Homeland Security “met with social-media companies to both inform and pressure them to censor content protected by the First Amendment.” It then “expanded the word ‘infrastructure’ in its terminology to include ‘cognitive’ infrastructure, so as to create authority to monitor and suppress protected free speech posted on social media.”
  • DHS “Defendants believe they had a mandate to control the process of acquiring knowledge.” 
  • DHS helped create a pseudo-private organization “to get around unclear legal authorities, including very real First Amendment questions.”
  • Federal defendants did not just censor speech directly; they also caused social media companies to change their policies. They “used meetings, emails, phone calls, follow-up meetings, and the power of the government to pressure social-media platforms to change their policies and to suppress free speech.” 
  • Although much of the past suppression involved COVID and elections, federal officials “have also shown a willingness to do it with regard to other issues, such as gas prices, parody speech, calling the President a liar, climate change, gender, and abortion” as well as political criticism about “the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the return of U.S. Support of Ukraine.” 


Chaska Children’s Clothing Store Doubles Down On Drag Show Support

Chaska’s Little Roos will be hosting a drag story time this coming Saturday, despite outrage from families in the community. Action 4 Liberty first reported on this event back in May, and the mainstream media is only picking up the story now that the event is a few days away.

In a Tik Tok released by the clothing store, a mother calls out the store’s support for drag queens, affirming that sexual content should not be presented to kids at such a young age. The store posted this video in an effort to get support for their decision. In reality, the response has been mixed at best.

The drag queen performer goes by the name Miz Diagnosis, whose Facebook profile is filled with a plethora of Pro-LGBTQ content – including support for transgender ideology. 



The books being read are “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish Swish Swish” by Lil Miss Hot Mess and “Albert the Confused Manatee” by Christopher Straub. Our team read the former and was not impressed by the illustrations nor the lack of plot.



At best, this stuff is flat-out weird to show to kids. At worst, it is content that contains sexual undertones and should be kept far away from anyone under the age of 18. Regardless, Little Roos appears determined to hold their drag story time.

The event will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, July 8th in Chaska.

Minnesota Democrats Spend July 4th Decrying ‘Stolen Land’

Americans used to share a sense of national pride and identity. Despite our political and cultural backgrounds, we were all able to come together and celebrate our founding as a country. In 2023, we do not even share that.  Minnesota Democrats took to social media to complain about July 4th and “stolen land.”

At least three Democrat state representatives wished Minnesotans a very unhappy 4th of July. Complaining about injustice, stolen land, and a painful history. Those are Reps Brion Curran (36B), Cedrick Frazier (43A), and Leigh Finke (66A). See their statements below.

Nation’s Largest Teacher’s Union List’s ‘Gender Queer’ As Recommended Reading

A controversial LGBTQ book, Gender Queer, has been called out by parents for being overtly pornographic material in school libraries. Some school districts have been pressured to remove the book, while others are encouraged to carry it. Now, the nation’s largest left-leaning teacher’s union is featuring it as a “Great Summer Read.

The book features several instances of nudity, masturbation, and oral sex. Children and adolescents do not need to be exposed to this content at all in elementary school. If parents want to discuss these concepts with their kids, they can do that at home.

The left has begun to rally around this book, promoting it in any way they can. The National Education Association (which gave 92.88% of its PAC contributions to Democrats in 2020) has released its list of “Great Summer Reads for Educators” which includes sections such as “Books to Celebrate or Understand Juneteenth” and “Banned Books: Celebrate the Freedom to Read.”

The union lists Gender Queer under the latter section. Traditionally, so-called banned books have actually been done so by the far-left. Anti-authoritarian books like Animal Farm and 1984 were banned in the Communist Soviet Union, and have been banned in some U.S. Counties. Those are examples of books that should be celebrated for being pro-freedom and capitalism.

Educators should be encouraged to read American classics over the summer, not left-wing propaganda coming from a modern-day political activist.

There is no freedom in grooming children because they cannot consent to the content that they are being fed. With graphic images of nudity, masturbation and oral sex – this book should not be funded by taxpayer dollars to be put in public elementary schools.

Minneapolis Cuts Fireworks For Budget; Wastes 680k On ‘Black Business Expo’

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board announced last week that the city will be skipping the traditional 4th of July fireworks, and opting for a cheaper laser show instead. The board claims that lasers are “more affordable.” However, this did not stop the city from blowing $680,978 on the “I am my ancestor’s wildest dreams” black business expo in February, which vastly underperformed expectations.

Our team wrote about the failed business expo last week after a report showed that the event was underattended and overfunded. When it comes to our nation’s founding, the Parks and Recreation Board found it appropriate to make the most cuts. 

Nobody should be surprised that the city prioritizes woke segregation events over national unity. The board’s diversity, equity, and inclusion statement is very clear about where their priorities stand:

“An equitable park system is one that provides just and fair inclusion for all people across age, race, culture, economic status, ability, and gender, and acknowledges that racial equity needs to be the priority in our work to dismantle systemic racism in our city.”

The mainstream left will gladly proclaim that America’s founding is racist, as a Time Magazine article from 2021 does. Naturally, they will do anything to diminish the celebration of such a holiday.

There is something uniquely American about firework shows. It resembles the firing of rockets and the patriotism of our founders. Getting rid of a tradition that spans decades of American history is nothing but sad and shameful. Especially when you’re willing to blow hundreds of thousands on events that nobody attends.

Woke Edina Church Partners With Radical Minnesota Freedom Fund

The Edina Community Lutheran Church (ECLC) has gained nationwide notoriety for their recitation of the ludicrous “sparkle creed,” but we're learning there's a lot more craziness to this highly politicized church. According to their “mission partners” page on their website, the group has partners with the extremely radical Minnesota Freedom Fund.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) became prominent during the 2020 George Floyd Riots. They serve to bail out everyone and anyone that has been put in jail. This includes violent convicts who have gone on to commit more violent crimes. Worse yet, the group has bailed out alleged child sex offenders.

As recently as February of this year, MFF twice bailed out a homeless man for felony-level possession of drugs (meth and heroin). After being bailed out, he was the driver in a fatal car crash while smoking meth.

MFF also bailed out the suspect in the Minneapolis Mosque arson. According to Crime Watch, court records showed the suspect had a history of mental health issues.

Now-Vice President Kamala Harris even promoted this group on the campaign trail, encouraging donations.

She eventually tried to walk back her support, even claiming that her support for the organization is "misinformation."

Even with endless scandals and missteps coming from this organization, the ECLC proudly partners with them and promotes the group on its website.

Check out our story about the ECLC’s “Sparkle Creed.”

Michigan House Passes Bill Making ‘Wrong’ Use of Pronouns a Felony

The Democrat-controlled Michigan House of Representatives passed an extreme anti-1st Amendment bill on June 20th that would make the ‘wrong’ usage of pronouns a crime punishable by imprisonment for as long as 5 years, or a fine as much as $10,000.

More specifically, HB 4474 would make it a felony to use words to make one “feel” terrorized, frightened, or threatened. Do not take my word for it, just look at the bill’s definition of “intimidate.”

The bill specifically states that "intimidation" based on "gender identity or expression" would qualify for felony status.

The bill passed 59-50 in the House, and will now head to the Senate.

Anti-free speech laws are sweeping the nation, and they are coming in the name of social justice for the far-left’s key base of supporters. 

Canada adopted a similar provision in 2017 with bill C-16, which prohibits supposed improper pronoun usage. Dr. Jordan Peterson was thrust onto the world stage by criticizing the legislation.

Here in Minnesota, we also have similarly draconian laws. The Democrat-controlled House Senate just created a “bias database” that records and documents wrong-think from citizens.

Unlike Canada, the United States has a constitution that protects free speech and expression. Hopefully, the courts will step in to defend the rights of the people and strike down these crazy provisions.

Audit Shows Taxpayer Funds Wasted on “Black Business Expo”; Most Funds Go to Non-MN Businesses

Baker Tilly LLP released a report for the Minneapolis City Auditor’s Office on Monday, showing that most of the $680,978 in taxpayer dollars allocated to the Black Business Expo in February went to out-of-state businesses. Worse yet, the event fell fall short of bringing in the expected 20,000 visitors that the city had hoped.

This event was supposed to support local black-owned businesses in Minneapolis. In reality, it may have ended up hurting them. MPR News reported in April that many business owners were disappointed with the event. They noted that small businesses spent money that they didn’t have to prepare for promised demand. When attendance fell short, businesses had to eat their losses.

The waste of taxpayer funds and lack of attendance can be blamed on poor event planning. Baker Tilly also sounded the alarm on duplicate invoices being received from vendors, some of which may have accidentally been paid. 

Additionally, the city paid performer Pinky Cole $33,500 to perform at the Expo, despite her backing out of the event at the last minute. 

Overall, this independent audit confirms that this event was a complete and total failure. Not only were taxpayer funds wasted on a woke attempt to spotlight black businesses, but these businesses were actually harmed as a result.

Of course, it is doubtful that the city will learn its lesson. Fraud, waste, and abuse are common tenants of Minnesota’s government. It is unlikely that anything will change anytime soon.
