Republicans NEED to get serious about repealing Governor Walz’ emergency powers. So far, all we are getting is political theater.
Republicans like Representatives Barb Haley and Marion O’Neill CLAIM to have the answer to Walz’ emergency powers, but are really just looking to score cheap political points.
In an email to one of her constituents obtained by the North Star Liberty Alliance, Haley claims that grassroots organizations like us are “lying” to you.
Here is why she is WRONG AGAIN:
Above is the bill that Haley and other RINOs (Republican in Name Only) have been pushing. As you can see, this bill DOES NOT end Walz’ emergency powers.
When pressed, Haley acknowledges that this is the case. She tries to defend herself, claiming that legislators need to work to reform his powers before they can vote to end them. This is a cop-out answer.
If these reforms Haley and other RINOs are proposing are so detrimental to Walz’ powers, then why would he ever sign them into law?
Voting to end Walz’ powers does not need a signature from him, just a majority vote in both the House and the Senate. In reality, much more likely to happen than this "reform" bill she's pushing.
Haley is unfortunately not the only Republican who is on board with this fake bill. Did you see that Marion O'Neill outright lied about her support for the bill?
Some Republicans saw this bill for what it really was -- a fake -- and voted against it.
Now, it appears that Haley and her friends will be trying to revive this fake bill and bring it up for a vote, instead of supporting resolutions that REALLY end Walz’ powers.
The establishment is pushing Haley to the front of the house caucus, because they see her as a potential candidate for higher office. If she is looking to represent liberty-lovers across the state, one would hope she would push better legislation than this.
Let Representative Haley know that SHE MUST DO BETTER. Call her and let her know!
Rep. Barb Haley - 651-296-8635 - email@example.com
NSLA has been pushing for a real end to Walz’ emergency powers since the beginning. Long before Haley decided it was politically popular to do so.
NSLA is now looking to make sure King Walz has declared his last decree. After our grassroots campaign to drum up support for impeachment, Walz WILL face an impeachment vote in the Minnesota House.
You can help make sure the House votes to impeach.
If you can donate your time, there is certainly plenty of work to do. Everything from writing letters to your local paper, to calling your legislator. We’ll need all hands on deck for this fight.
If you can donate funds to the cause, we’ll put them to good use. Your donations will fuel petition drives, events, and advertisements all focused on ending Walz’ tyrannical reign over the state of Minnesota.
Together, we’ll make sure that RINO Republicans like Barb Haley vote to end Walz’ powers, and vote to impeach him once and for all.
It’s good to know that Republicans in St. Paul have our backs. They have all come out against Walz’ emergency powers, so surely they’ll fight hard to end them, right?
Republicans have been PRETENDING to fight Walz and his emergency powers because they had no choice! They knew our grassroots army would come after them with phone calls and emails if they didn’t fight for Minnesota small business owners.
What the RINO Republicans have been attempting over the past few months is nothing more than political theater.
Rep. Barb Haley - a moderate from Red Wing - has been pushed to the front of the caucus as the chief negotiator on Walz’ powers. The DFLers in the legislature seem to like working with her… and there is a reason for that.
Haley and her friends have no interest in actually repealing Walz’ powers and opening our economy. They are looking to push through emergency power reform that really doesn’t change the tyranny we’ve been living under for the past several months.
As you can see, they are mostly just moving words around. This is to give the illusion that action is being taken to please their constituents. The DFLers like working with Haley BECAUSE they know nothing will change, and Walz can still cling to his powers for the time being.
Representative Barb Haley is looking to run for higher office -- and this is supposed to be her crown achievement.
Give Rep. Haley a call, and tell her to take DECISIVE action on ending Walz’ powers once and for all.

Our politicians CANNOT keep letting Walz off the hook for the damage and destruction he has caused the state. We MUST impeach him in order to serve justice and restore our economy.
Straight out of Denial-ville, Republican Representative Marion O’Neill is making Pinocchio blush and telling people some whoppers. And worse yet, there’s undeniable proof she’s lying. But should we expect anything less from these politicians who will do or say anything to get re-elected?
Career Politician, Republican Representative Marion O’Neill, is on her 5th Term in office slated to be there for a decade - TEN YEARS! Desperate to hold onto her power, she’s off telling lies to people.
As reported by our friends at Action 4 Liberty HERE, Republican Representative Marion O’Neill has been put on the Subcommittee on Legislative Process Reform. This committee is trying to “reform” Chapter 12 which has the section Walz cites for his illegal and unconstitutional edicts of Emergency Powers. Rather than doing what they should do -- outright Ending Emergency Powers.
These politicians are playing right into the hands of the enemy by looking at giving them a cover bill. If they pass a Fake End Emergency Powers bill, these people will run around town saying they did something when in actuality they just made the Powers permanent. They allow these politicians off the hook, and we cannot let them get away with it.
Statute 12.31 subdivision 2 reads:
“Declaration of peacetime emergency. (a) The governor may declare a peacetime emergency. A peacetime declaration of emergency may be declared only when an act of nature, a technological failure or malfunction, a terrorist incident, an industrial accident, a hazardous materials accident, or a civil disturbance endangers life and property and local government resources are inadequate to handle the situation.”
This is where all the shutdowns garbage emanates. Walz cites 12.31 as his authority - wrongly of course - to tell people they can’t have Thanksgiving with their family threatening to toss people into jail. This guy is off his rocker.
Now any sane person would conclude we have to End Emergency Powers outright so this nightmare never revisits us. Not round some edges making Walz’ powers permanent. But what are the weak Republicans doing? They are positioning to sell us out!
Not only that, but they already did! (with the exception of a few genuine fighters)
Rep. Marion O’Neill already did.
If you remember, Republicans FAILED to bring forward a vote to End Walz’ Emergency Powers in November 2020 after doing so for five straight months. This after just promising to do so throughout the entire election. These politicians are saying one thing to get elected and then betraying people afterward as we are all too familiar.
So instead, on November 12th, 2020, after the election, REPUBLICANS stabbed liberty lovers in the back by pushing and voting for HF19 that did not end the powers at all. You can see Representative Marion O’Neill's and everyone’s vote HERE and pictured below here:
As you can see in the full vote, a few Republicans voted against this thing on principle including Rep. Steve Drazkowski and Rep. Jeremy Munson.
As Action 4 Liberty points out, if this reform is so good for us, why on Earth would Walz sign it? And if we have a vote to do something, why wouldn’t we vote to repeal this outright and End Emergency Powers?!
This trash bill shows it and you can read the language for yourself. In fact, it says merely the same thing as before but that they can curtail some lockdown rules rather than doing the right thing and Ending his Emergency Powers outright. See the language here:
Here’s a link to the bill if you want a closer look: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bills/text.php?number=HF19&version=0&session=ls91&session_year=2020&session_number=6
The North Star Liberty Alliance (NSLA) has obtained an email sent from Rep. O’Neill where she denies up and down that she is working on a Fake End Walz’ Emergency Powers bill and trying to make them permanent. However, you can see right here on the subcommittee’s website the purpose for them meeting - which starts on January 22nd, 2021 is:
“Review of Executive Orders issued by Governor Walz during the Peacetime Emergency.”
Now if that isn’t enough, these politicians talked about it openly on the House floor on Monday, January 11th, 2021 when they were debating a real End Walz’ Emergency Resolution and you can hear and watch it for yourself. (they begin talking about it at about 24:05)
So not only is Rep. Marion O’Neill lining up to stab us in the back but she ALREADY DID in November. Votes don’t lie.
Struggling business owners have NO INTEREST in political theater. It’s time the legislature take a stand and end Walz’ powers. We need to demand a clean vote, none of this Fake End Emergency Powers garbage.
The longer they let this go on, the longer Walz gets away with destroying Minnesota’s economy for years to come. Help us make sure Walz learns his lesson.
Put your name to the petition to hold Walz accountable by Impeaching him. We are prepared to drop off the tens of thousands of petitions in support of impeachment at the Capitol. Is your name on the list?
Your North Star Liberty Alliance is undoubtedly under attack from lazy legislators who don’t want to do their jobs. Help us fight back! Consider a generous donation that keeps us on the front lines!
Radical socialism is rearing its ugly head once again at the Minnesota Capitol.
A bill authored by State Rep. Stephenson is Minnesota’s own version of AOC’s “Green New Deal”. HF 10 - known as the “Clean Energy First Act” is an effort by radical leftists to jack up our energy bills to forward their socialist climate agenda.
The tyrants in the legislature aren't satisfied with the strangling regulations already placed on the shoulders of Minnesotans. RINO’s in the legislature are perfectly fine with laying down and letting hard-working Minnesotans foot the bill.
Make no mistake, this unnecessary virtue signaling bill is not the best course of action for Minnesota.
This spin-off of the infamous “green new deal” isn’t about the environment - it’s about government control.
More specifically, this bill:
- Gives the state FULL CONTROL of your local utilities company
- Pushes UNRELIABLE wind and solar power
- MANDATES price controls that threaten our free market
- ELIMINATES traditional and cheaper forms of power
- JACKS UP the price YOU pay every month
The question is, what career politician in the Minnesota legislature is qualified to dictate what’s best for the people of Minnesota?
It's not enough that the government is dictating who goes to Thanksgiving and eliminating your income, now they demand you pay high energy prices. Minnesotans are getting squeezed from all angles.
We cannot let EITHER SIDE champion this bill. Put your name to the petition we’re sending to legislators, and tell them NO to the Minnesota Green New Deal.
Despite the legislature being in session, and “allowing” businesses to operate at 50% capacity, Tyrant Tim Walz has slammed on ANOTHER 30-day “emergency”.
Keep in mind, Governor Walz has NO authority to unilaterally create laws and enforce them. Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm admits that “The sun is rising on the pandemic…”, so why does Walz need at least another 30 days of this madness?
He’s admitted that he has no plans to give up his emergency powers until some of his mandates are written into law by the legislature. That’s the “compromise” he has to offer.
This craziness has been going on since March of last year… we are coming up on the one year anniversary of “15 days to slow the spread”.
It’s time for Walz to be honest. There IS NO EMERGENCY. He’s just looking for excuses to hold on to his unilateral, executive authority that has destroyed the Minnesota economy over the past year.
Remember when Walz issued a stay-at-home order?
Remember when he shut down businesses twice?
Remember when he and radical Attorney General Keith Ellison threatened to arrest people for visiting their families at Thanksgiving?
If he is allowed to keep his emergency powers, he can do it all again in a moments notice.
Help the North Star Liberty Liberty Alliance (NSLA) send a message to Walz and his friends, that this sort conduct in a free state is absolutely unacceptable.
Representative Erik Mortensen is preparing to launch Articles of Impeachment against Walz for his conduct in office, and we need your help in making it all happen.
If you have already signed our petition, then sign up to help volunteer with NSLA!
Have you ever heard of a politician earnestly trying to relinquish their own power? Probably not -- those with power typically don’t.
Just a week ago on MPR, Walz admitted he has NO plans to relinquish the powers he has held since March of 2020. This makes it clear that he is giving us nothing more than lip service. Nothing short of him saying outright (from Walz, a power-hungry career politician?!) that he likes to play god with our livelihoods can convince many that Walz is on a ten-month power grab with no end in sight.
Walz is on the warpath against Minnesota small business owners but his rules apply to the people, not to himself and his buddies. An unconfirmed and very trustworthy source reports that Walz held a holiday party of his own while ignoring the mandates against gatherings that HE ordered, forcing them to sign an agreement to keep his little law-breaking merrymaking secret.
Walz also sat on the sidelines while Minneapolis businesses burned to the ground, openly attacking peaceful homeowners. His mishandling of police violence in Minnesota alone is reason enough that Walz should face removal, if not charges, but now he has unleashed a new kind of violence- financial and spiritual violence.
A year ago, almost no one would have believed that a power grab such as this was possible. Breaking the law by having Thanksgiving dinner with our families? Unable to step outside without a mask? Sorry, but you can’t worship with your church? We would have said it was crazy: or my favorite response- “It would never happen.”
It is happening and it has happened.
Nothing matters but to stop this insane path and make our own decisions and evaluate our own risks as free Minnesotans and Americans once again. Walz is a tyrannical force of divisiveness, disingenuousness, and state control through forced dependence on HIM.
Then, he wants to hear his thankful subjects praise HIM, instead of God on Sunday, for saving them from this terrible situation- that he created. Nothing matters anymore but taking back our liberty. It becomes so difficult to decide what matters when our day-to-day lives have focused so much more on survival since Walz became a dictator. We have lost faith in the system and in ourselves to make a difference, but I believe we can.
Representative Mortensen has tried to introduce resolutions that will end Walz’ powers, but the DFL majority in the house won’t hear it! In order to get the message out and end the tyranny once and for all, Mortensen will introduce articles of impeachment later this month.
We are not all in agreement on everything, and that’s ok. But it’s high time we are all back to agreeing that we are all Minnesotans and Americans that deserve fair and reasonable leadership. We can make a difference, and we can make our voices heard.
We are not victims and we don’t need Walz to protect his helpless, adoring little subjects. Contact your legislator, and tell them to take a stand against Walz, and send him packing. Then, be sure to sign our petition.
(Pictured Above) Attorney General Keith Ellison Celebrating
Just because Walz has “allowed” businesses to open up at partially, does not mean that his radical attorney general -- Keith Ellison -- has let up at all.
Ellison is now celebrating the fact that liberal courts have fined the Alibi Drinkery and The Interchange $3000 every day they continue to violate Walz’ orders. This is up from the $250 a day both were previously forced to pay.
In fact, Ellison did more than celebrate the increase. He ASKED for it.
Lisa Zarza, the owner of Alibi Drinkery, expressed disappointment and frustration with the court’s ruling:
“He’s (the judge) being pressured by the attorney general, he’s being pressured by Walz to make decisions to make us comply. It’s really hard for me to stand down because we’ve been fighting this fight for how many weeks now?”
Walz and Ellison are doing everything in their power to ensure that small businesses like these will close their doors forever.
Why do they get away with it? There are a few legislators in St. Paul who are ready to hold them accountable… so why haven’t they done anything yet?
Representative Erik Mortensen is ready to introduce our Articles of Impeachment against Governor Walz later this month. We are ready to make sure he has the support he needs to hold Walz accountable, and send a message to Ellison.
The best thing you can do now is add your name to our petition. We plan to show representatives in St Paul your signatures, and tell them that the people of Minnesota want impeachment to happen.
As long as Walz remains in power, he can keep abusing his office and enforcing his illegal and unconstitutional executive orders. It doesn’t matter if he gives the leash around Minnesota’s economy a little slack now, because he’s ready to pull it back in a moments notice.
Talks of this new strain of COVID-19 could give Walz the excuse he needs to send us into our next economic depression.
Don’t let him get away with it.
When you sign, be sure to send the petition to ALL your friends and family. We need every signature we can get to prove the importance of this task. Then, consider a donation to the cause. Anything you can spare is much appreciated!
Is Governor Walz listening?
For close to a year now, grandstanding politicians have told us that we must listen to the scientists, and that we’re “ ...not going to get veto power over science”.
Our own governor has spoken condescendingly to the people of Minnesota regarding this “science”. It’s this same science that he has used to shut down our economy and rob business owners of their right to a livelihood.
What if these politicians were wrong the whole time?
University of Minnesota epidemiologist Michael Osterholm has made his own independent observations, and has come to a different conclusion than our high and mighty leaders.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Osterholm asks…
“Was it appropriate to shut down so many things back then when there was so little, if any transmission? I think you can argue now that probably was not the best use of resources …”
He goes on to say that early shutdowns created a general mistrust for the "science". Go figure!
Curiously, Osterholm will be joining the incoming-Biden administration as an advisor. Maybe he’ll talk some sense into Sleepy Joe, who has advocated for nationwide lockdowns and mask mandates.
Dr. Osterholm is hardly the first to speak out against the lockdowns. In hindsight, many organizations and publications have come out against the science that supported locking down local economies.
It’s becoming more and more clear that shutting down our economy is perhaps the worst way to have dealt with the spread of the virus. Of course, Governor Tim Walz and his friends will never admit it.
Tyrant Tim would rather wipe all small businesses from main street than admit he was wrong. Now, he’s going as far as trying to push his mandates into law. Creating permanent mask mandates and restrictions on bars and restaurants.
When the riots this summer didn’t destroy enough small businesses, he sought out to finish the job himself.
Don’t let him get away with it.
The North Star Liberty Alliance is heading up the effort to impeach Governor Walz. We would love to have you on board.
When you sign, send the petition out to your friends and family.
Please consider a donation to the cause, whatever you can spare is greatly appreciated.
Things will begin heating up soon when our statewide campaign officially begins. Will you tell small businesses that you were part of the effort that sent Tyrant Tim packing?
Just as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, politicians lied to us. During campaign season and even since, Representatives Sanstede, Lislegard, Eckland, Marquart, Sundin and Pelowski told voters and constituents they were for Ending Walz’ Emergency Powers and even voting to move to do so in the past.
Today on Jan. 11th, 2021, there was a move to take up to End Walz’ Emergency Powers. While all these politicians pay lip service to open up schools, open up businesses and such, when push comes to shove, they spit in the face of Minnesotans and VOTE NO on Ending Walz’ Emergency Powers. This is unacceptable.
Worse yet, both parties are openly talking about pushing a Fake End Powers bill and codifying these illegal and unconstitutional edicts into law, which is FAR from ending the powers. These crooked politicians are actually working against us and trying to snow us. Don’t buy their lies.
These Emergency Powers don’t need to be “reformed”, they need to be outright ENDED. And it’s legislators like Rep. Barb Haley and other House Republicans that are leading the charge to try to sneak this through and make Walz’ Powers permanent.
These deranged politicians even went so far as to say there hasn’t been property debate on this. What? Did we hear that right? We have had this voted on almost a dozen times and thoroughly talked through and it’s abundantly clear Minnesotans want an end to the madness.
With the failure of Republicans to get their colleagues to vote with them, they are waving the flag of surrender and trying to compromise, making Walz’ Emergency Powers PERMANENT. Republicans are angling to codify them into law forever. Unreal.
What we really need is to Impeach Walz NOW. North Star Liberty Alliance moving this forward by pushing out our statewide campaign THIS WEEK. Are you a part of the grassroots army that is making it happen? You can start by putting your name to our petition:
When you sign, please consider a donation to support our efforts.
Impeachment will certainly be difficult, but it is more than possible with the help from our grassroots army. We’ll see you on the front lines.
As we approach the one year anniversary of “15 days to slow the spread” (March 2020), it should be no surprise to anyone that Governor Walz is still clinging on to his emergency powers.
Luckily, with the beginning of a new biennium in St. Paul, we have new legislators who are willing to fight back. Thanks to our grassroots army of activists, voters ushered liberty-champion Erik Mortensen into the Minnesota House.
Mortensen has already caused the St. Paul establishment a great deal of headache by introducing legislation to end Walz’ emergency powers. Though his bravery is already a win for the people of Minnesota, he is not stopping there.
Mortensen has called out supporters of Tim Walz’ lockdowns for their blatant hypocrisy. While many small business owners must forgo a salary and shut down their bars and restaurants, Governor Walz continues to collect his regular paycheck, and reside in the luxurious governor’s mansion on Summit Avenue. With his new piece of legislation, Mortensen seeks to right this injustice.
The proposed legislation would:
“...suspend the salary of the governor and legislators when certain orders are issued restricting the operation or conduct or private business”.
In other words, as long as Walz and his friends in the legislature continue to cause economic chaos throughout the state, they will find themselves in a very similar situation.
Sounds like a good deal, right?
Mortensen cannot do this alone. He must have the support from his fellow legislators in order to make it happen.
Use the link above to find out who represents you in the state legislature, and tell them to sign on to and vote for Mortensen’s bill.
The establishment cannot avoid the will of the people forever. Make your voice heard!
