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.
