If this article is right, DFL boy toy Jacob Frey will soon get a lesson in crisis leadership from President Trump. While Minneapolis burns, while Minneapolis gets looted, the DFL mayor of Minneapolis abandons a sinking ship.

According to the article, Frey said “Earlier this evening, after receiving real-time information from [Police Chief Medaria] Arradondo and after having numerous phone calls with him involving the situation at the Third Precinct, it became clear that there were imminent threats to both officers and the public. I made the decision to evacuate the Third Precinct. The symbolism of a building cannot outweigh the importance of life, of our officers or the public. Brick and mortar is not as important as life.” That led to this scene:


Frey sounds like an idiot:

Asked about Trump’s tweets, which also criticized him, Frey said, “Weakness is refusing to take responsibility for your own actions. Weakness is pointing your fingers at somebody else at a time of crisis. Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis.”

Jake, weakness is doing nothing while rioters burn Minneapolis to the ground. Minneapolis and Minnesota ‘leadership’ went silent while the crisis escalated. KSTP’s Tom Hauser questioned that strategy:


President Trump weighed in on the riots:


Don’t expect President Trump to sit idly by while Frey does nothing. What’s happening in Minneapolis reminds me of an old Rockford Files episode title. It was titled “Never send a boy king to do a man’s job.” It’s time for real leadership. Minneapolis won’t get that from Frey. Here’s proof of that:

In this column, WSJ columnist James Freeman essentially indicted Minnesota’s DFL Gov. Tim Walz. Gov. Walz is following in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s footsteps in putting nursing home residents at risk. This isn’t surprising since Democrats are fairly used to following a script.

It’s been known for more than a month that the elderly and those with weak immune systems can’t handle the COVID virus. Despite that understanding, “Minnesota has been implementing the disastrous Covid-19 strategy made famous by New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The essence of the plan is to forcefully reduce the income of people at low risk, while simultaneously increasing the chances of virus exposure for those at high risk.”

This is how crises get extended. Sending COVID-infected seniors to nursing homes is a potential death sentence. This isn’t putting 2 and 2 together and getting 4. It’s more like putting 2 and 2 together and getting 9. Freeman cites a Star Tribune article, too:

Early in the pandemic, the Minnesota Department of Health turned to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to relieve the burden on hospitals that were at risk of being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients. Minnesota hospitals have since discharged dozens of infected patients to nursing homes, including facilities that have undergone large and deadly outbreaks of the disease, state records show…

One such facility, North Ridge Health and Rehab in New Hope, has accepted 42 patients from hospitals and other long-term care facilities since mid-April even as the coronavirus has raged through its 320-bed nursing home, killing 48 of its patients and infecting scores more.

The first outbreak of COVID deaths happened at a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington. It was above-the-fold-front-page news for a week or more. I can picture someone slow like Gov. Walz not picking up on that clue but there’s no reason why his public health people shouldn’t have picked up on that. Instead of noticing, Minnesotans got another example of the blind leading the blind.

According to this KARE11 video, the Walz administration didn’t figure out a plan to fix the Walz-induced crisis until 2 weeks ago:

The Walz administration’s cavalier attitude towards problem-solving is disgraceful. They’ve created more problems than they’ve solved. It’s fair to say that the Walz administration didn’t protect nursing home residents. He’s as disgraceful as Gov. Cuomo. Then again, what would you expect from a pair of airheaded Democrats?

Despite DFL Gov. Tim Walz’s total failure during the COVID-19 crisis, his approval has increased. While that’s disappointing, it’s understandable. Because the Twin Cities media hasn’t asked Gov. Walz a single hard-hitting question, much less a difficult follow-up question, all Gov. Walz has to do is not totally disintegrate to have his approval improve.

To the Twin Cities media, it isn’t relevant that hundreds of lives have needlessly been lost in long-term care facilities. The Minnesota Department of Health, aka MDH, can be utterly incompetent but that apparently doesn’t impact Gov. Walz’s approval rating, either. Who cares that 500,000 Minnesotans have lost their jobs as a direct result of Gov. Walz’s tight-fisted lockdown order? After all, they’re just jobs. It isn’t like they’re important to people.

Gov. Walz is still letting COVID patients into nursing homes. That’s led to a high percentage of COVID-related deaths coming from long-term care (LTC) facilities. Unfortunately, that’s the only category Minnesota leads in.

Minnesota’s economy is tattered. The percentage of COVID-related deaths in LTC facilities is the highest in the nation. Gov. Walz’s orders have been supported by the DFL. Most importantly, those policies haven’t worked. Some policies have been reversed just days after implementation. Bankruptcies are increasing rapidly. Life savings have gotten lost. Family businesses have gotten shut down.

What part of that sounds like something worthy of a 65% approval rating? It sounds more worthy of a 35% approval rating. Gov. Walz is a failure from a medical and financial standpoint. He’s especially failed from a constitutional standpoint. Initially, Gov. Walz “had said churches would have to wait before reopening for large, in-person services until subsequent phases in his reopening process, but gave no date for when that would happen.” This past Saturday, he changed his mind. Perhaps this is why:

A U.S. District Court judge in Minnesota will conduct a hearing Tuesday about a temporary restraining order on behalf of Minnesota churches to suspend enforcement of Minnesota’s Stay Safe MN order as it relates to religious services. The telephone hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday. It will address the Governor’s current phase of the Stay Safe MN order, which restricts church services to 10 people or fewer.

Check out this headline:

Gov. Tim Walz to let Minnesota churches open at 25% occupancy

This is why the Twin Cities media constantly doesn’t understand the Constitution. Gov. Walz isn’t letting anything. He’s being forced into changing because that’s what the Constitution requires. When you have constitutionally illiterate idiots writing things like that, it isn’t surprising that Gov. Walz isn’t getting asked difficult questions.

Equal application of the law is essential. Gov. Walz failed that test. I’m not surprised.

Powerlineblog’s Scott Johnson has a bunch of pointed questions that he’d like to ask Gov. Tim Walz. The bad news is that Gov. Walz isn’t interested in answering difficult questions that doesn’t have a good answer to. The worse news is that the DFL legislature is acting as Gov. Walz’s Praetorian guard. The DFL House won’t untighten the controls so real reporters who would ask difficult questions can ask those difficult questions:

The Washington Free Beacon’s Collin Anderson reports on my exclusion from the daily COVID-19 press briefings by the state authorities in “Minnesota governor stonewalls conservative journalist.” Working on the story, Collin elicited statements from the governor’s office and from the Minnesota Department of Health regarding my exclusion. By contrast, my inquiries have elicited the sound of silence, so we’re getting somewhere.

Collin forwarded the responses to his inquiries for my comments. Walz’s office sent a message explaining that “the Governor’s press conferences are covered by the Minnesota Capitol Press Corps, a dozen media outlets that are credentialed by the Minnesota State Legislature, rent office space in the Minnesota Capitol building, and routinely cover state government.”

What is Tim Walz trying to hide? Why is he afraid of answering difficult questions? If your policies are right, there isn’t a reason to be worried about the questions.

Thus far, though, Gov. Walz has had to be dragged kicking and screaming into every major decision. He hasn’t done things proactively. The DFL governor has been reactive with each major policy reversal.

The fact that Gov. Walz hasn’t made any confident-looking major COVID-19 decisions signals that he wouldn’t want to answer Scott’s questions. That’s because Scott’s questions wouldn’t be softballs, though they might include follow-up questions that were tougher than the introductory questions. Gov. Walz is like the general in this MASH episode:

The general’s famous final words were “Just wait a minute. This is a press conference. The last thing I want to do is answer a lot of questions.” I’m betting heavily that Tim Walz identifies with that general from MASH. It’s one thing to get asked softball questions from KARE11, MPR, the Strib or KSTP. That’s easy. It’s another to take questions from Alpha News or Powerline. Then again, most citizens would ask better questions than the Twin Cities media on the subject of COVID.

Let’s settle this. Scott Johnson and Kevin Roche have done fantastic work on the topic of COVID-19, though that’s been mostly because of their tenacity. It isn’t like Gov. Walz has helped whatsoever.

Two months ago, protesters pushed Gov. Walz into changing policies with their protests. It’s time to push Gov. Walz into other policy changes. Perhaps, we’ll see more capitulations by Gov. Walz like this:

Through consultation with Minnesota faith leaders, the Minnesota Department of Health has developed additional guidance for faith-based communities, places of worship, and services. Starting May 27, places of worship may open at 25 percent occupancy if they adhere to social distancing and other public health guidelines to keep congregants safe.

“I have had many meaningful conversations with faith leaders over the last few weeks,” Governor Walz said. “From a personal and public health perspective, the decision around places of worship has been a challenging one since the beginning of the pandemic. We know large gatherings of people raise the risk of spreading COVID-19. We also know worship is an essential part of many Minnesotans’ lives, including mine.”

GOV. WALZ TRANSLATION: After President Trump pulled the rug out from underneath me, I’ve had to modify my policy. My initial policy didn’t make any sense but now it’s totally indefensible. Churches are now open.

Seriously, Gov. Walz has, once again, gotten dragged kicking and screaming into a decision he didn’t want to make. Perhaps that’s why he doesn’t want to answer Scott Johnson’s and Kevin Roche’s questions.

Here in Minnesota, a rebellion is starting to take shape. While Gov. Walz won’t admit it, it’s happening. Jeremy Olson’s article highlights the beginnings of a rebellion:

A cohesive COVID-19 response that Gov. Tim Walz has described as the envy of the nation showed signs of cracking Thursday as organizations threatened to defy the governor’s remaining state lockdown restrictions. Even as the state’s one-day death toll reached a single-day high, backlash continued to the governor’s decision Wednesday to allow only outdoor bar and restaurant services to reopen June 1, to delay campground reopenings until after Memorial Day weekend, and to limit indoor and outdoor religious services to 10 people.

“Arbitrarily forcing restaurants to remain closed through the Memorial Day weekend is a crushing blow,” said Mikael Asp, owner of La Grolla restaurant in St. Paul, who wanted the governor to OK indoor restaurant service at 50% capacity.

This weekend is typically the start of camping season and BBQ season. It’s also the unofficial start of summer. Further, there’s no reason why Gov. Walz shouldn’t modify his rules to open campgrounds by telling campers that they have to obey social distancing rules.

Time after time, Gov. Walz has opted for the most restrictive set of rules possible. That’s led people to question whether he’s incapable of figuring out and implementing nuanced policies. The jury is still out on that question.

“Governor Walz continues to ignore the creative, thoughtful and safe reopening plans that small business owners have developed,” Rep. Dave Baker, R-Willmar, said Thursday at a news conference unrelated to the recall.

Thinking that Gov. Walz, or any Democrat for that matter, will get creative is like expecting blood from a turnip. It’s like expecting gravity not to work. Good luck with that.

In the segment, Randy Shaver illustrated some thinking that’s foreign to Gov. Walz and the DFL. The reporter talked about how some wanted to attend mass in person while others didn’t feel safe. Still others thought that drive-in mass might be best. Shaver pointed out that it’s possible to do all 3 simultaneously. That’s what people who reject the prison-of-two-ideas policy-making method do. Expecting that type of thinking from Gov. Walz is like expecting gravity not to work. Good luck with that.

In 1927, the hated New York Yankees put together one of the most feared lineups in baseball history. The middle of their order was known as ‘Murderers Row‘. Their batting order featured center fielder Earle Combs, left fielder Bob Meusel and second baseman Tony Lazzeri. The ‘Row’ also included 2 other guys — Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth — who, I’m told, were pretty decent, too.

The Democrats have a different type of Murderers Row. The Democrats haven’t hesitated in squashing people’s liberties. David Avella and Georgia State Senate Majority Leader Michael Dugan put together this article to highlight the right way to govern during the Wuhan Virus crisis.

Americans never wanted to see small-business owners treated like criminals. We never wanted our parks and beaches to be designated as inherently dangerous. We have never been required to stay away from loved ones who are sick or dying.

As a nation, we understand the severity of the health crisis we now face, but the law should never be used to persecute an individual’s freedom nor to prosecute Americans operating legal businesses to support their families. Charging small-business owners with crimes is just too much, especially when the public wants leaders to pursue a level-headed approach.

That’s why governors like Gretchen Whitmer, Tim Walz, Tom Wolf and J.B. Pritzker are experiencing frequent protests. They don’t care about people’s rights. They just care about feeding their appetite for power. They are legitimately titled tyrants. This is how incompetent Michigan is:

In Minnesota, Tim Walz’s regulators are still admitting COVID positive patients back into nursing homes. In Pennsylvania, the state’s Commissioner of Health moved her mother out of a nursing home when she found out that COVID patients were getting moved into that nursing home. That’s before talking about Walz’s Department of Health not properly transporting tests to the lab. (They forgot to refrigerate the kits.)

Hundreds of people have died needlessly because these tyrants are incompetent or vindictive or both. This is how to do things right:

On March 14, Kemp issued an executive order declaring a public health state of emergency, calling forth the emergency powers of his office with the compliance of the legislature. On March 16, the legislature convened to ratify Kemp’s order. At that time, the House and Senate each had the opportunity to concur with or terminate the governor’s declaration. Having determined the gravity of the situation demanded emergency action, the Senate and House quickly agreed.

There are also two other features of what was done in Georgia that would serve other states well to match. First, public health state of emergencies must have the concurrence of the General Assembly. Second, the legislature must maintain the right to terminate the state of emergency at any time.

Together, these checks on the executive branch limit what the governor may order and create a partnership where the executive branch of government is agile enough to meet citizens’ needs without legislation.

That’s doing governance right. Michigan and Minnesota are governance that only a tyrant would love.

This article highlights DFL Gov. Tim Walz’s incompetence. In it, we learn that “A Minnesota National Guard unit botched COVID-19 testing for 300 residents and staff members at a St. Paul nursing home Monday, leaving many with pain, discomfort and bloody noses.” That’s just the start of the litany of problems. Then there’s this:

In what one health official acknowledged was “a disaster,” the test samples from Episcopal Church Home were later ruined because they were not stored in coolers while being transported to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. State officials quickly apologized to Episcopal Homes leaders and said they’ve already taken steps to ensure such mistakes aren’t repeated. Nevertheless, an elder care advocate said the incident raises serious questions about whether Minnesota can accurately and effectively carry out widespread testing.

It’s the leaders’ responsibility to establish proper procedures. Gov. Walz and Commissioner Malcolm share the blame for not establishing those procedures. Further, they share the blame for not getting the right supplies in the right hands at the right time.

Kris Sundberg, the executive director of Elder Voice Family Advocates said what everyone was thinking when she said “This just further erodes any trust that we have had in the Department of Health. I think we have a long way to go to really have the clearly thought-out protocols we need in order to do [widespread] testing.” I’d expect better execution from the Washington Generals than we got from this leadership team.

A statement Wednesday from the Minnesota State Lab Partnership acknowledged “that there was an isolated incident related to the packaging and shipment of specimens to one of the testing sites. Ensuring the temperature integrity of specimens is critical to testing. We are accelerating and strengthening our training program to ensure all specimen collections, packaging, and shipping are performed to the highest standards.”

You’ve got to be kidding me. The program was put in place without training the personnel first? This is Frontline Management 101. This isn’t a graduate level course.

Jan Malcolm, state health commissioner, also apologized. In an e-mail to Plakut Wednesday, she said officials have been working to quickly develop new training and protocols for swabbing and infection control at long-term care facilities, but “in this rapid launch, important steps in the process were missed and there were miscommunications.”

Incompetence is this administration’s hallmark. Minnesotans had hoped that getting rid of Mark Dayton would turn the page on incompetence. Based on results thus far, it’s apparent that Minnesotans placed their hope in the wrong candidate. After viewing this video, it’s apparent that the DFL is devoid of competent leaders:

Melvin Carter is the African-American version of Tim Walz. They’re both timid. They’re both unwilling to trust the people. Apparently, trusting people isn’t the DFL way.

Anyone that thinks that DFL Gov. Tim Walz’s decision-making is a portrait in logic should schedule an appointment with a mental health expert ASAP. At yesterday’s briefing, Gov. Walz explained the rules for opening up bars and restaurants. We now know that “Bars and restaurants in Minnesota can open June 1 for outdoor service under a revised COVID-19 response strategy announced by Gov. Tim Walz on Wednesday that also allows for limited reopening of hair salons and campgrounds.”

We also know that Benevolent King Walz said “While the virus won’t yet allow for business as usual, let’s do what we do best after winter in Minnesota and head outside. Whether it’s a Jucy Lucy, a plate of tamales, or a walleye dinner, Minnesotans can support their local restaurant by enjoying a socially distanced meal outdoors.”

Then there’s this:

Republican lawmakers balked at the lack of accommodation for places of worship, which cannot have outdoor services of more than 10 people even though restaurants can now serve 50 outdoors. “I see no reason why churches are any more dangerous a place for coronavirus transmission than Walmart or a mall,” said Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-East Gull Lake. “I am dumbfounded why the governor would treat churches this way and hope the federal courts will intervene.”

That rule is as dead as Gov. Walz’s logic is confusing. Gov. Walz’s rules hint that people dining out are able to make better health decisions than people attending church services. In what warped solar system does that make sense? Hint: When Gov. Walz saw Alice, did she greet him?

During the video, Gov. Walz said “I wish I could tell you that there was a perfect answer. I wish I could tell you that the ones we have are absolutely right.” This is what a control freak sounds like. Why not establish sound guidelines (social distancing, wearing masks, etc.), then let people figure it out? This is what happens when a politician doesn’t trust the people. This sounds like a threat more than a guarantee:

“It is going to get worse here, this virus, before it gets better. That is an absolute guarantee,” said Walz, predicting 1,000 deaths in Minnesota by the end of the month.

After finding out that we’re still sending COVID-19 patients back to nursing homes, which is a huge mistake on Gov. Walz’s part, he’s virtually telling us that he’s working to create this crisis. If someone has COVID, sending them into the midst of a building filled with people whose immune systems are compromised is like giving an arsonist a can of gas, some matches and a field of dry grass. What do you think will happen? This is pure BS:

The concern for state public health leaders is that the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 spreads more rapidly than was initially known, particularly in indoor areas with limited airflow.

Florida, Georgia and Texas have opened up the most. They haven’t seen the things described in the previous paragraph. We were told that they were opening too soon, that they’d kill people and that they’d have blood on their hands. Here’s Gov. DeSantis’ reply:

It’s time for these reporters to work a little harder. It’s time for them to admit that they’ve gotten things badly wrong by trusting the liberal narrative. The facts speak for themselves. Res ipsa loquitur. There’s that old reality rearing its ugly head and getting in the way of a well-spun narrative. There are times when I’m convinced that Jeremy Olson and Briana Bierschbach aren’t employed by the Star Tribune. At times, I wonder if they’re paid by the Star Tribune but employed by the DFL.

Gov. Walz has failed. He hasn’t trusted Minnesotans. He’s executed his plans poorly. I wouldn’t trust him to run a lemonade stand. If you searched for the definition of incompetence in a dictionary, there’d be a picture of Tim Walz and Andrew Cuomo instead of words.

The thing that’s inescapable from this article is that the Tim Walz administration doesn’t give a damn about residents of long-term care facilities, aka LTC facilities. It isn’t often that I’d utilize such over-the-top language but this time, it’s found in the Star Tribune article itself. Check it out if you don’t trust me.

The article opens by saying “Despite the devastating death toll, Minnesota nursing homes are still being allowed by state regulators to admit coronavirus patients who have been discharged from hospitals. Early in the pandemic, the Minnesota Department of Health turned to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to relieve the burden on hospitals that were at risk of being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients. Minnesota hospitals have since discharged dozens of infected patients to nursing homes, including facilities that have undergone large and deadly outbreaks of the disease, state records show.”

This is almost as frightening:

Now that practice is drawing strong opposition from some lawmakers, residents’ families and health watchdogs, who warn that such transfers endanger residents of senior homes that are understaffed and ill-equipped to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

Why just some lawmakers? Why aren’t all lawmakers upset with this stupidity? Further, Minnesota’s hospitals never got overwhelmed. Why did the Walz administration turn to “nursing homes and other long-term care facilities”? My annual physical was scheduled for late-January. That got postponed because the clinic was converted to overflow for the St. Cloud Hospital at the start of COVID. The appointment was rescheduled again to March 31. Again, I was told that it was related to COVID. The entire clinic was emptied out to create extra bed space.

The point is that hospitals and clinics prepared for a spike in COVID cases. There never was a threat to hospitals running out of space in Minnesota. There might’ve been a chance we wouldn’t have had enough staffing but that’s a different contingency to plan for. LTCs certainly weren’t better staffed than hospitals. This is the closest video I found in an hour of searching dealing with the topic of nursing homes in the past week:

The number of COVID-related deaths are increasing as a direct result of sending COVID-infected seniors into LTCs. This doesn’t require medical school training to figure out. It requires a memory of what Andrew Cuomo did in New York. This proposal should be immediately rejected:

They are calling for more state scrutiny over transfers, including stricter standards over which nursing homes should be allowed to accept COVID-19 patients from hospitals.

Wrong! They shouldn’t be allowed into nursing homes. Period. If nothing else, the state should set up a facility that could hold those elderly COVID-19 patients. Why set things up so that an entire facility gets infected? Karin Housley positively nailed it:

“It makes no sense to bring more COVID-19 patients into facilities that have already failed to protect them,” said Sen. Karin Housley, the Republican chairwoman of the Senate Family Care and Aging Committee. “If it were my mom or dad in one of these facilities, I would be really worried.”

This is frightening:

State health officials and long-term care industry representatives have defended the practice of discharging some COVID-19 patients to nursing homes, saying it is part of a broader strategy to conserve critical hospital beds during the pandemic. Long-term care facilities can provide treatment for coronavirus patients who still need care, but have stabilized enough that they no longer require hospitalization, officials said.

How’s that worked thus far? Thus far, 80% of COVID deaths have happened at nursing homes. That indicates that these ‘experts’ have been wrong.

The keys to this election, at least in terms of themes, will be trust and performance over the past 2 years. That’s the headwind working against the Democrats this year, both here in Minnesota and nationwide. Let’s start with what’s happening in Minnesota.

Gov. Walz has grudgingly started reopening Minnesota’s economy. That’s happening only because of multiple protests and the threat from some business owners who simply started threatening to open with or without Gov. Walz’s permission. Even then, Gov. Walz has been pathetically slow. LFR was told that protecting the most vulnerable in LTC facilities were a high priority for this administration. Despite that prioritization, 81% of Minnesota’s COVID deaths have happened in LTC facilities.

In terms of Minnesota’s economy, it’s in the crapper. Rep. Anne Neu debated House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler on Friday night’s Almanac. It didn’t turn out well for Winkler:

When Cathy Wurzer asked about the possibility of laying off or furloughing state workers, things got interesting fast.

WINKLER: I think that should be one of the last resorts that we should consider. State workers are providing essential services throughout Minnesota, from people who are processing unemployment insurance checks to epidemiologists at the Department of Health to correction officers engaged at the Department of Corrections to making sure that that doesn’t become a hotspot. We have people working to protect the meatpacking industry. We have people working to make sure our state parks are able to operate. … I also think that layoffs or wage cuts doesn’t help the economy, doesn’t help any of us if some people are making less money and so that’s why I hope that’s one of the last things we would look at.
REP. NEU: Well, I certainly think that salary freezes are appropriate. … The reality is that we’re looking at a significant deficit. We’re at $2.4 billion right now. There’s a good chance that will go up by the November forecast. And frankly, we have asked our private sector businesses, our mom and pop shops, are devastated right now and it really is not fair to those businesses to take the hits that they have taken and then to say that, no, as a government, we are going to fund everything at the levels that we always have.

We shouldn’t trust the DFL, aka the party of big government. Walz’s campaign slogan was One Minnesota. The policy that Winkler defended sounded like one of the private sector getting tossed table scraps after the government has feasted and had seconds. That isn’t my definition of One Minnesota.

Nationally, Democrats like Gretchen Whitmer keep tightening the screws on Blue Collar Americans with arbitrary (and unilateral) executive orders. It’s apparent that Democrat governors don’t want to return to sharing power with GOP legislatures. They’d rather act unilaterally rather than work with Republicans.

Why trust Democrats who want to act unilaterally and without the consent of the governed? This isn’t a third-world dictatorship. This is the nation whose Declaration of Independence emphatically states that we are “endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights.”

Democrats have dragged their feet in terms of reopening the economy and restoring our God-given rights. Democrats have jailed patriots like Shelley Luther:

Democrats even tried jailing a 3-star general because Donald Trump had the audacity to win the 2016 presidential election. Listen to the condescension of this pundit:

He’s perplexed after reading the deposition transcripts? When Jim Clapper said that he hadn’t seen “any direct empirical evidence” of conspiracy between Russia and Trump or anyone in Trump’s campaign, does this idiot still think that there was justification for prosecuting Gen. Flynn? If he thinks that, the next question is why he’s that stupid.

None of this engenders trust for Democrats. Finally, if Biden is elected, why think that he wouldn’t return Clapper, Comey, Mueller, et al, to his national security team? Why trust any of these people in positions of power after what they’ve done?
