Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has been exposed as a corrupt, anti-freedom Democrat after leaked emails reveal his administration’s “creative” use of Covid data.
“I have to be absolutely candid in Minnesota — we are in the midst of a significant surge in coronavirus cases,” Gov. Walz reportedly said at the time.
Reports indicate that email communications between Minnesota Department of Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm and Gov. Walz’s chief of staff, Chris Schmitter, provide evidence the state’s top official expressed disappointment that not enough residents were infected or hospitalized.
“This is helpful, though less useful than I expected,” Schmitter reportedly wrote. He went on to float the notion that if the Minnesota MDH could generate data showing “75 percent case growth,” the governor “could target” social gatherings, weddings, and funerals “more aggressively.”
It appears the far-left governor wanted to maintain a stranglehold on small businesses and gatherings regardless of the Covid rates. When honest members of the Department of Health failed to deliver scary numbers, the Commissioner ordered employees to get “creative” in October 2020. That despicable manipulation of scientific information set that table for Gov. Walz to crush struggling business, drive suicide and addiction rates higher all, so the Democratic Party could prove they ruled the lives of everyday people.
“Due to careful contact tracing and continuous research, we now have a far greater understanding of the ways that the pandemic spreads. Greater knowledge allows us to be more surgical in our approach to mitigation, especially when faced with the current surges,” Gov. Walz’s Executive Order 20-96 states. “The present data points to social gatherings (including friends and family gatherings at private homes), celebrations, and bars and restaurants as the most significant source of COVID-19 spread in the state.”
- By Nov. 10, 2020, Gov. Walz had enough fake data to support one of the country’s harshest and unnecessary lockdowns. Executive Order 20-96 mandated the following.
- Social gatherings in private homes are limited to 10 people (indoors or outdoors) and may involve no more than three households.
- Effective Nov. 13, private parties at venues must end at 10 p.m. and remain closed until 4 a.m. if they serve or permit the consumption of food or beverages.
- Private parties at venues will be limited to 50 total participants on Nov. 27; and 25 total on Dec. 11.
- Effective Nov. 13, total restaurant capacity will be capped at 150 people, including both inside and outside settings, and it may not exceed 50 percent of the establishment’s total capacity.
- People must remain seated; no bar games such as darts and pool.
As Democrat Gov. Walz heads into a re-election year, it’s crucial for voters to know the facts about his lockdown directives, underhanded methods, and attempts to hide information from the public. In the days surrounding the unethical and potentially illegal “creative” methods used to legitimize the crushing lockdown mandate, government watchdog organizations were fighting an uphill battle to secure correspondence routinely made available to citizens under the Freedom of Information Act. To say Gov. Walz’s administration resisted lawful requests would be something of an understatement.
Public Record Media, a non-profit organization, was being rebuffed regarding governmental actions taken during the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots. Democrats across the country sided with street thugs who burned, looted, attacked police officers, and killed innocent civilians. While criminals ran roughshod over Minnesota communities, Gov. Walz went on the record supporting them and quickly pushed back in harmony with Defund the Police liberals to mandate police “reforms.”
“These are things that have been brewing in this country for 400 years,” Gov. Walz reportedly said. “And thank God a young person had a camera to video it.”
The government watchdog outfit fought tooth-and-nail to pry public information hidden by the Walz administration. That’s why freedom-loving Americans need to know the subversion of seemingly scientific data was part of a backroom scheme to hoodwink the people of Minnesota. The governor’s closest advisors never reportedly handed over the damning emails that exposed the fraud used for onerous lockdowns. Patriotic Americans leaked the information to prevent Democrats from building a left-wing caliphate ruled by progressive ideologies with the power to lock hard-working people in their homes and take away their livelihoods.
