THE BILL MAHER EFFECT: Minnesota’s Democrat Governor Not Going Down With Biden

"We've moved from pandemic to end-demic."  -- Governor Tim Walz


When Donald Trump left the White House in order to make room for the guy the Lunatics of Davos had personally selected to replace him, I had one hopeful thought: What happens if not enough Democrats are willing to sacrifice their own careers in the name of this lunatical Great Reset? 

Consider the following staggering admissions made by Minnesota's very liberal Democrat governor, as reported today in the Minneapolis Star Tribune: 

StarTribuneMN: Gov. Tim Walz says Minnesotans must learn to live well into the future with the lingering threat of COVID-19 — but not necessarily with the executive orders and mandates that dominated the early months of the pandemic.

"We've moved from pandemic to end-demic," Walz said Thursday in a wide-ranging interview. "What we've learned over the last 18 months is we're going to have to figure out smart ways to live with this into the future.

"I don't like to acknowledge it, but we're going to have to live with this for years."

While states such as Oregon and Illinois are moving to reinstate mask mandates in many situations, Walz said his executive orders became so politicized in Minnesota "that it might be counterproductive."

Starting last year, Walz issued dozens of executive orders, such as mask mandates and business closures, over a span of 15 months to respond to the pandemic. He gave up those emergency powers in July as part of a deal with the divided Legislature to pass a biennial budget and avoid a government shutdown.

"We're going to have to learn to live with this without the executive orders," said Walz.

"I think you have to come to the realization [that] we're going to be living with about 20 percent of folks unvaccinated, and what does that mean?" he said. "It's not throwing up my hands and giving up, but it's a realization that I'm not going to crush this like smallpox and eradicate it from the world. It's going to be with us."

COVID has dominated Walz's first term as governor and will provide plenty of fodder for Republican candidates seeking to challenge him in 2022. Walz had a 57% approval rating in a September 2020 Star Tribune/MPR News/KARE 11 Poll, dropping 8 percentage points from a high watermark earlier that spring.

Five Republicans have jumped into the race, including former state senator and physician Scott Jensen, whose campaign seeks to bring together opponents of Walz's handling of the pandemic. State Sen. Michelle Benson, R-Ham Lake, and Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, who frequently sparred with Walz over COVID restrictions, are also considering a run for governor.

Let’s call it the Bill Maher Effect.  It wasn't too long ago here in liberal Minnesota when they were talking contact tracing, vaccine passports and another lockdown. What happened?  Well you don’t have to be a conservative to not appreciate it when bureaucrats start playing you for the fool. COVID fatigue is very real.  And just as there are plenty of “regular Joes” who are sick and tired of the Covid Show if only because they want their football, beer, and good times back, so too there are politicians on the other side of the aisle who may not wish to go down with this clown show. Unless they happen to be billionaires, even many Dems are not even close to the inner circles of Team Davos and as things spiral out of control in the Swamp, they will begin asking themselves one key question: What’s in this for me?

And the answer to that is so simple, especially if you're a governor from Flyover Land: Nothing! There’s nothing in this for you, unless you're a globalist insider who likes to ski in Davos.

And that, friends, provides light at the end of the tunnel for the rest of us, as we begin asking questions of our own:

  • Can the Lunatics of Davos actually pull this off?  
  • How many politicians are in the same boat as Minnesota’s liberal Democrat Governor Tim Walz?
  • What happens if they like America, and really don’t want to see her destroyed in the name of some goofy New World Order?

The bottom line is this: Many Democrat politicians, like Governor Walz, are simply not going to get reelected if they toe the globalist line much longer. They are going to be thrown out of office before the Great Reset ever happens, if it happens. And at some point, in the name of self-preservation, these folks are going to start putting themselves and their future first. 

Minnesota is a very liberal state. So what is happening here can happen anywhere. Those “regular Joes” have had enough of mandates, masks, and emergency powers. Many of them took to the streets and shouted their resistance so loudly and so passionately that they managed to wake up a Republican or two, who suddenly saw very real political opportunities open wide before their eyes.

The Democrat game plan over the course of the past 15 months has become a serious political liability. And with Great-Grandpa Joe now stumbling and mumbling into La La Land, it’s becoming a no-brainer: Every Democrat’s political career could be history long before anyone is ever led into the Promised Reset Land. 

Next up? We're going after Minnesota businesses. If they mandate vaccinations as a condition for employment, we pledge to boycot them across the board, sue them, and denounce their policies as discrimination and violations of human rights. 

For now, here's the good news: 

No mask mandates in Minnesota!
No vax mandates in Minnesota!
No contact tracing in Minnesota! 
And our governor says we must learn to live with Covid in Minnesota! 

Thank you, Minnesota! You did this. We all did this! We held our ground as we must continue to do until this globalist nightmare comes to a merciful end. 

This is war. We are patriots and soldiers. And, here in Minnesota, we just won a round.
