Democrats We Targeted Are Retiring in Droves

The writing on the wall is crystal clear - the Con Artist Democrats who protected Governor Walz' Emergency Powers have dark days ahead.

I'm happy to report that a third Democrat we targeted last year has announced a sudden retirement. That makes 3 already - and it's only March 3rd!!!

Mike Sundin, Paul Marquart and Karla Bigham know that voters are angry with them for supporting wannabe Tyrant Governor Tim Walz. They were in big trouble.

We knocked on every voter's door in their districts, and I can assure you, their voters were on board with you and me. They don't like politicians who vote against their liberties.

Our large pressure campaign caused REAL PAIN for Democrat politicians. It's the reason that the DFL Party filed an erroneous campaign finance report against us - which we beat handedly.

However, when you talk to a RINO legislator, they'll accuse us of "only attacking Republicans." Remember - politicians lie! 

To be politically respected, you must be politically feared

Which is why in reality, the people the Democrats fear the most is you, me and the hundreds of thousands of supporters of Action 4 Liberty. They know we don't compromise on our liberties and are willing to fight to protect them!

This is an election year, which means politicians will launch a full on assault on groups like ours. They want a smooth path to the thing they care about the most: their re-election.

I promise to make things extremely rocky, turbulent and painful for them this year. You can see many of them are already quitting because they know we aren't going away.

WE WILL NEVER QUIT! 

Democrats are desperately scrambling to change the narrative now that mandates are extremely unpopular. Have you noticed this?

In fact, Joe Biden is using the Russia-Ukraine war propaganda to steer our attention away from the massive infringements on our rights. Just the other night at the State of the Union Address, masks came off. Poof --- Science!

Even an infectious disease expert used by the Biden Administration recently stated that "cloth masks don't work" on the Joe Rogan podcast. 

You see, the Democrats were on the wrong side of history and they know it. So they are trying to do what they can to pivot.

But we won't let them pivot on the truth. We'll inform their voters of what they did to Minnesotans' liberties in the name of "fighting COVID." That's our promise to you!


Dr Osterholm States ‘Cloth Masks Don’t Work’ on Rogan Podcast

Dr. Michael Osterholm, Director of the University of Minnesota CDC Research and Policy went on the Joe Rogan Experience recently and when asked by Joe if masks work, he explained how cloth masks do nothing to stop the spread of COVID. Something we, at Action 4 Liberty, have been saying since the beginning of the pandemic. And also why we’ve been publicly opposed to all mask mandates.

Watch the clip:

Osterholm blasted the studies that argued that cloth masks were effective in preventing a Covid-19 infection. He says that he would’ve “failed” one of his graduate students if they created and gave him a study like the ones showing mask efficacy. Why was the government using these studies to justify mandates? Despite the mounting evidence of cloth masks being ineffective and simply face decoration, the CDC still argues the “any mask will help” narrative.

We wrote about the flaws of the government studies back in February of 2021, when the Dept of Health testified in the Minnesota House Health Finance & Policy Committee about why masks are important. 

In April 2020, Dr. Osterholm contributed to a study that explains the nature of this virus, how it spreads, and what masks are effective in preventing infection. He showed how cloth and surgical masks do not stop Covid-19 from entering as this disease is airborne like aerosol or perfume. 

On top of this, the size of Covid particles can go right through surgical and cloth masks. Infectious particles range from 3 to 30 microns large (a micron is one-millionth of a meter) and N95 masks prevent particles larger than 0.3 microns from entering. 

Dr. Osterholm also tells Rogan that 25% of people do not wear their mask correctly, they’re wearing “chin diapers.” Who can blame them? If the mask doesn’t work, why pretend like it does? 

Masks have become a symbol rather than a tool, this tactic to control the American public has gone on far too long. We must stand up to the fake science that Fauci, Biden, Tim Walz, and the media throws at us. Cloth and surgical masks don’t work in protecting yourself or others, it’s time to throw them away.


MN House Bans Hair Discrimination, Redefines 'Race'

The Minnesota House voted on Monday to ban discrimination on the basis of hair.

HF1315, the so-called “Crown Act”, adds language to the Minnesota Human Rights Act that redefines the term race to include “traits associated with race” which includes “hair styles such as braids, locks and twists.”

Here’s the entire bill:

This legislation was created under the guise of racial equality for black people. In reality, this is identity politics and government control over businesses. Business owners have to make their own hiring choices, using government coercion on the basis of hairstyles is beyond ridiculous!

The radical leftists behind this insane legislation that aims to liberalize hairstyles in private businesses are the same people who want private businesses to fire the unvaccinated! 

Look at this bill for yourself and decide if Minnesota citizens are clamoring for new business regulations relating to “braids, locks, and twists!”

One potential damage from this insanely iditoic legislation is that the military will no longer be able to have a uniform standard for haircuts, unless the institution is willing to violate the Minnesota Human Rights Act. It of course won't do that. 

What’s even worse about this insanity is that it’s bipartisan! The vote was 104-26 with all of the DFL members and a majority of the GOP members.

In our upside down government, they are focused on hair discrimination instead of IMMEDIATELY refunding the $12 Billion surplus or stopping vaccine mandates!

No need for government intervention, individuals can make their own employment choices. Action 4 Liberty opposes all wasteful spending and laws. This bill fits the bill. It’s now up to the Senate GOP to stand with the Left’s “Social Justice” or they can fight it and brush it off.


Minnesota Budget Shows Record $12 Billion Surplus; Taxpayers Owed Over $4,000 Each!

The Minnesota Management and Budget Forecast was released this afternoon and it shows a record $12 Billion in Surplus Funds. While the Political Class and the Corporate Media will lead you to believe the amount is only $9.3 Billion, the government is holding onto another $2.6 Billion of your cash as well in a “Reserves account”. 

Our state government is projected to be overcharging Minnesotans by nearly $12 Billion in total. All of it should be Given Back to Taxpayers IMMEDIATELY!

In December, we learned that our state was projecting a massive budget surplus, which at the time was measured as $10 Billion. Apparently the amount has grown significantly in two months.

A budget surplus means that our government overtaxed us because the spending and revenues of the government should balance out. Similar to when you are overcharged at a store, the money should be immediately returned to you. 

Walz and the Democrats have offered peanuts to the people, proposing to give $175 to individuals and $350 for couples - most likely allowing some people to get a check even if they didn’t pay in. This is our money and we’ve been overtaxed!  This measly offer is an insult to the taxpayers who have contributed to our oversized, tyrannical government.

The Senate Republicans are proposing long term tax breaks, targeting the social security tax and with an income tax reduction on the lowest tax bracket only. We agree that those taxes should be cut, but this is like the store overcharging you, and then slowly giving you your money back over the next decade. 

Republicans should be unified in DEMANDING an immediate return of the entire budget surplus of $12 Billion. With 2.5 Million taxpayers statewide, you should be receiving a check of up to $4,000 if you paid in. Some people should get even more if they paid a higher tax bill.

Action 4 Liberty is calling for the State House, Senate, and Governor to return the entire surplus, including the budget reserves, to the taxpayers. When we are overtaxed we are owed the money IMMEDIATELY.

Republican Legislators Refuse to Give Vote on Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment

Today, Rep Erik Mortensen offered a Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment on the Frontline Workers Pay bill. This was a promise that was made going back to last August, when the Minnesota Legislature was considering a Special Session to pas the Frontline Workers Pay bill.

Unfortunately, the Political Class on both sides of the aisle helped kill the bill. That means your Republican Legislator would NOT stand for the issue you care about. Worse yet - they likely fed you a bunch of BS and say they support stopping vaccine mandates.

But we're four weeks into 2022 Legislative Session and so far only Rep Erik Mortensen has attempted to force a vote on the bill. All he needed was for 15 other Republicans to join him in raising their hand to provide a recorded roll call vote. Without those hands, voters have no idea how a legislator votes and essentially kills it. This is the tactic that the  Political Class uses to kill pro-liberty legislation.

Only Reps Drazkowski, Munson, Bahr, Miller, Lucero and McDonald supported a public roll call vote on the Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment. All the other Republicans sat by and did nothing. Here's an image of Republicans sitting by and not forcing a vote.

Here's a low resolution video from the Gallery of Rep Mortensen offering his Amendment and the refusal of most Republicans to give him hands...

More importantly, why hasn't the Republican controlled Minnesota Senate voted on Stopping Vaccine Mandates yet? They've met for four weeks now in 2022. You may remember Senators like Jim Abeler, Mark Johnson & Gene Dornink (to name a few) who told you they were against vaccine mandates. 

WHERE'S THE VOTE?!?!

 

Sen Gene Dornink

651-296-5240
E-mail: [email protected]

By the way, Sen Gene Dornink is carpetbagging to a district he doesn't live in to run against Lisa Hanson.

According to Minnesota Senate rules, any Senator can force a vote on a bill. Why haven't they led? Republicans are in control of that chamber.

All of us who care about health freedom and Stopping Vaccine Mandates, only have six legislators willing to stand up and force a vote on Stopping Vaccine Mandates.

Well, this is why I told you to go to caucus on February 1st and become a delegate. Now it's time to confront your legislator who is seeking your vote for endorsement. Tell your legislator that they have failed you and the people of Minnesota by not forcing a vote on the Stop Vaccine Mandates legislation.

 

 

 

 


Corruption in Morrison County GOP

The Morrison County GOP was forced to cancel its convention this Tuesday after widespread corruption was uncovered in the Party's delegate lists. Dozens of delegates were removed from the lists and new names emerged post caucus, which is against Party rules.

Morrison GOP is in Establishment Gubernatorial candidate Paul Gazelka's backyard. In fact, the chairwoman of the Party, Mandy Heffron, is a paid staff according to the Gazelka for Governor campaign finance records:

Based on evidence provided to us from precinct chairs, information contained in written affidavits and pictures of delegates sheets, there’s substantial evidence that either Mandy Heffron or someone at the Morrison County GOP deleted names of duly elected delegates and replaced them with non-caucus attendees and unelected delegates. In one case, an elected delegate was removed and replaced with a legislator’s wife. This is a major violation of Party rules and disenfranchises the voice of people engaging in an open and fair political process.

Action 4 Liberty supporters showed up on caucus night in droves in Morrison County and in good faith signed up to be delegates. We’ve held several popular meetings in the district in the past couple months and saw overwhelming engagement from local patriots.


(Image: A4L Caucus Training, Little Falls in late January)

But Party insiders worked behind closed doors to remove their voice. And it appears to be targeted directly at the newly engaged conservative activists.

Our story begins with a deliberate attempt to remove conservative delegates in order to allow a legislator’s wife to become a delegate. Rep Ron Kresha’s wife showed up on the delegate sheets provided to the MNGOP. According to Little Falls Ward 3 Precinct Chair, Dan Schilling, Mrs. Kresha was not elected as a delegate by the precinct attendees (she was an alternate). Dan Schilling spoke with us and told us that his wife Sara Schilling was removed as a delegate afterwards. As Precinct Chair, Dan requested pictures (via text and email) of the delegate form he handed in that night from Mandy Heffron and has not received a response.

Little Falls Ward 3 Delegate Andy Boone can corroborate this story as he was also in attendance at the caucus. His wife, Brittany Boone was elected that night as a delegate but has since been taken off the delegate list - same list that included Mrs. Kresha.

Another precinct had at least 10 delegates removed and six new ones added. This was discovered by Shah for Governor campaign volunteer, Cassie Fredregill. Cassie reached out to Mandy via email and text 20 minutes after caucuses ended to make sure information was properly recorded. Multiple sources told us that Mandy Heffron was collecting precinct delegate sheets before precinct attendees were finished filling in pertinent information. No response was given until February 10th, 9 days later when the lists had already been sent to the state party. Because of Cassie’s volunteer work with the Shah campaign, she found that 10 of the people who were elected as delegates at her caucus, were not on the list of delegates provided to statewide campaigns.

Delegate removal and replacement was also brought to surface at the Pike Creek Township Precinct Caucus. A man named Josh Schwab was elected a delegate in the precinct because another man named Joseph H decided not to be a delegate - he had been around the Party for awhile and wanted new activists to have the opportunity to serve. However, Joseph H's name appeared on the delegate list and not Josh Schwab when sent to the MNGOP. Tes Schwab, who served as Precinct Chair, provided a signed affidavit that covered this event. Tes additionally said she spoke with Jospeh H after the caucus and confirmed with him that he was not elected that night as a delegate.

Tes Schwabb captured a picture of the delegate sheet before handing it into the Morrison County GOP.

There were similar instances in other precincts that were provided to us as well. The reason we were able to uncover this fraud is because the MNGOP provided the Morrison County delegate lists to statewide candidates and Dr Neil Shah's campaign sent out a press release last week exposing grave issues. 

Following the Shah release, Mandy Heffron admitted to the Star Tribune that "five names were added to the delegate lists because those people contacted the chair before the caucus to say that they wanted to be a delegate." Our information suggests it was a lot more than five, but even that number is cause for concern because sometimes legislative endorsements are decided by a couple delegate votes. Five delegates added after the fact, against Party rules, could sway an endorsement.

The matter has been referred to local law enforcement. Precinct caucuses are covered under Chapter 202A of Minnesota State law. 

A well organized conservative, outsider candidate named Nathan Wesenberg, running for state senate, had many conservative activists show up on caucus night to support him as delegates. As of the publication of this article, Wesenberg has been unable to get the delegate lists from the Morrison County GOP despite the list already being used by statewide candidates. His campaign cannot call the list of people who he helped turn out to the caucus. 

It’s important for candidates to have the lists of delegates who will be choosing who to endorse for legislative offices.  We spoke to Wesenberg and he showed us proof that he has called and emailed her repeatedly for the delegate list, only to be ignored. It appears that the list is being withheld because it would be easily proven by him of how the Morrison County GOP is manipulating the caucus results. Even MNGOP Chair David Hann is aware of Wesenberg not receiving the list from Heffron and has failed to act.

Why would Morrison County GOP and Mandy Heffron want to quash the voice of new conservative activists? Turns out, they have been operating as a slush fund for establishment candidates like Sen Paul Gazelka and Rep Ron Kresha for years.

We dug into public records and found that 97% of donations to Morrison County GOP in 2021, came from out-of-district lobbyists and Special Interest Groups.

Morrison County GOP also received a $1,500 donation from Lockridge Grindal Nauen PLLP, the law firm that was hired by the Democrat Party to file an erroneous campaign finance board complaint against Action 4 Liberty. That complaint was decisively dismissed, but it was a planned attack by the Political Class to hurt our organization.

Morrison County donated $8,000 of their tainted money to Gazelka less than two weeks before he announced his run for Governor, which he subsequently terminated that Senate campaign, and transferred the money to his new gubernatorial campaign. The same campaign that paid Mandy Heffron as a staffer.

More importantly, this money transfer took place in a non-election year, before the Party made endorsements for the upcoming election cycle. So if a candidate wanted to run for office in the district, the incumbent candidate holds an unfair, significant monetary advantage over the challenger.

Kresha also received $2,000 from the Party on the same date, even though an endorsing convention has yet to be held for the 2022 election cycle. The party should NOT give money to candidates before the Endorsing Conventions.

But could Political Party units really attack Action 4 Liberty supporters? Leaked audio to Alpha News back in July of 2021 showed that then, GOP Party Chair Jennifer Carnahan and a State Representative, talked about “purging” Action 4 Liberty people from the Party. They met in a private meeting with local Republican leaders to discuss what to do with the influx of new conservatives holding their elected officials accountable.

We at Action 4 Liberty called tens of thousands of patriots to attend their local caucus. Instead of thanking us, the Morrison County GOP is trying to stab our people in the backs. But it is because you patriots showed up that we can discover and expose the truth. They’re trying to keep you out but it is your involvement that is keeping the fight for freedom alive. 

Our mission is to protect liberty for the next generation. In order to do that, we clash heads with the Political Class that seeks to keep the status quo in place. But we never quit the fight because the future of our children is too damn important.


Heroic Lisa Hanson Runs for Minnesota Senate

Lisa Hanson is running for the Minnesota Senate. Lisa recently spent a couple months in Freeborn County jail for the grand sin of opening her bistro and serving coffee against Governor Walz' decree! Now she is running for Senate in newly formed Senate District 23. The area covers all of Freeborn County, most of Mower Co and parts of Faribault, Weseca and Steele Counties. 

While being held as a political prisoner, she missed the birth of her newest grandchild, her anniversary with Vern and Christmas with her whole family. Walz and Keith Ellison targeted her because she is a patriot who refused to comply with their unconstitutional lockdowns and business closures.

To right this wrong, she is now running for the open Senate seat to restore our Constitutional government in Minnesota and make sure that Unilateral Emergency Powers NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!

"When you see deficiencies or even corruption within government" stated Lisa, "it is our duty to hold government accountable and this requires action from the People. If we want to effectuate change we cannot sit home and complain about it, we have to take action.”

I view Lisa Hanson as a hero who stood up for what was right. Now she wants to make sure future generations don't lose their liberties by a tyrannical governor.

Dr. Shah and Other Candidates Call for Forensic Audit of Caucus Data

News broke this week over various claims of intentional and unintentional errors found in the caucus data released by the Republican Party of Minnesota (MNGOP). 

The MNGOP released new data on the morning of February 12th to statewide candidates showing 35,196 caucus attendees while the caucus straw poll had 17,801 voters. This is an obvious discrepancy that the MNGOP has excused with a data entry error as new names were added and that it would be corrected.

However, there are multiple claims of false and missing information for who attended the caucus, their addresses, emails, phone numbers, and delegate status. Duly elected delegate names have been removed from lists and non-attendees have been added in their place. Morrison County in particular saw a Paul Gazelka staffer admit to deliberately omitting delegates from the list and adding names of people not in attendance. 

Governor candidate Dr. Neil Shah was the first to put out a press release demanding an audit and investigation. This was followed by Secretary of State candidate Kelly Jahner-Byrne and Governor candidates Kendall Qualls and Mayor Mike Murphy. If we proceed with carrying out the BPOU conventions without a full forensic audit, we are guaranteed to not have a fair endorsement process,” Dr. Neil Shah stated.

These allegations threaten the free and fair process of the GOP State Convention nominating process. If candidates can change the people on the caucus list, they can change the vote. Election integrity has been at the forefront of Republican voters’ minds and the MNGOP should set the example. 

If you were a delegate at your Caucus, contact your BPOU to confirm that they have the correct information for you. We at A4L called tens of thousands of Minnesotans to provide them with caucus information. Citizen engagement should be rewarded, not deleted! Please reach out to us if you feel the MNGOP has removed your name as a delegate. 


State of Emergency Called in Ontario; Truckers Keep Fighting

Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who was previously viewed as anti-establishment and independent, has turned his back on freedom and his constituents. Ford announced today that he is declaring a State of Emergency to stop the truckers’ Freedom Convoy blocking the border between Detroit and Ottawa. The demonstration by truckers is a resistance to the vaccine mandates imposed by the Canadian government on truck drivers.

The State of Emergency will remove the truckers’ ability to protest the tyranny they have been forced to live under. Ford goes as far as saying that the police should “do whatever it takes to bring these occupations to an end.” Protesters could face a year in jail and $100,000 fines simply for standing up for their individual liberties. He is seeking to remove the personal and commercial licenses of protesters so they have no right to their profession of choice.

Doug Ford, along with his late brother Rob Ford, became progressive, conservative icons with their brash and blunt style. However, Ford has been anything but consistent, stating he was against vax passports, then later supporting them. 

The truckers seem unwilling to back down and are willing to risk it all for their freedom! The State of Emergency will be another hurdle to overcome but we can’t think of a tougher and more capable group to fight this than the truckers. Their protest is NOT illegal because the actions they are protesting ARE illegal. The people are fed up with crony politicians abusing their power. What we see in Canada, we also see in Minnesota.

The impacts of the protests are clear and the truckers should never give up. Doug Ford has shown himself to be a clown who bends to Trudeau’s pressure. Never trust these politicians because they will surely disappoint. Only when we pressure them will we see freedom be restored. Stay vigilant!


Minneapolis/St Paul Vaccine Mandates a Failure; Restrictions Immediately Lifted

Under a month into the failed agenda of Mayors Jacob Frey and Melvin Carter, they are both abandoning their vaccine mandates of bars and restaurants. The mandates were the first vaccine passports introduced in the state. The reason for Frey and Carter's policy change was done out of political conveniency and not principle, but a victory is a victory nonetheless!

While it is nice to see these Democrats finally change their tune, we cannot forget the pain they caused to our businesses and communities. Restaurant reservations were down by over 60% in Minneapolis once the passports were implemented, proving that they don’t work and that people do not support discrimination.

Greg Urban, owner of Wild Greg’s Saloon in Minneapolis, was pleased to hear the news. Greg told Action 4 Liberty “The mandates and passports make no sense, Frey wasn’t following the numbers or science and was implementing these policies long before others. He was targeting businesses for political gain, a specific industry, in a specific city.”

We at Action 4 Liberty are happy to hear his enthusiasm and look forward to his business BOOMING once again!

These actions only happen when we apply pressure to politicians and refuse to comply. We know the Democrats are scared by the unpopularity of their programs and we are seeing them reverse course nationwide. This means we need to hold their feet even closer to the fire now because we knew all along that they were wrong and their policies will fail.

Our resistance will cause the changes we need to see. Together we can end the Covid tyranny once and for all!
