- Governor Walz assumed unilateral control over Minnesota last March.
- Walz has extended his Emergency Powers 10 times!
- The Courts have rejected three Recall efforts.
- The DFL Controlled House has voted to ignore the Democratic process 12 times! Voting to keep all power consolidated with Walz.
It’s time we hold this Governor accountable.
Tomorrow, Rep. Mortensen will introduce five Articles of Impeachment against Governor Walz. He has TRAMPLED all over our rights guaranteed to us in the state and US Constitution.
Here’s an overview of each Article that details Walz’ conduct warranting impeachment and trial, and removal from office:
Timothy J. Walz violated Article III, Section 1 of the Minnesota State Constitution when he exercised the powers of the Legislative branch. Through the use of Executive Order, Walz manufactured state law, a power strictly and constitutionally reserved to the Legislature.
Timothy J Walz single handedly declared a violation of his Executives Orders were punishable as gross misdemeanors subject to a fine not to exceed $3000 or jail time of up to 1 year whereas the legislature provided in the emergency powers statute under Minnesota Statute § 609.735 that violation of the statute was subject to a misdemeanor and a fine not to exceed $1000 or jail time not to exceed 3 months. No statutory or constitutional authority exists for the governor to invent new penalties under the color of law.
Timothy J. Walz, through executive orders, has restricted and effectively banned the free exercise of religion in the state of Minnesota in violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and Article I, Section 16 of the Constitution of the State of Minnesota of 1974 which reads, “The right of every man to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience shall never be infringed.”
Timothy J. Walz, through executive orders, has taken private property in violation of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and Article I, Section 13 of the Constitution of the State of Minnesota of 1974 which reads, “private property shall not be taken, destroyed or damaged for public use without just compensation therefor, first paid or secured.”
In responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Timothy J. Walz, Governor of the state of Minnesota, has taken a number of extreme actions that have not been necessary for the protection of the public and have had significant adverse effects on the people of Minnesota. Governor Walz’s aggressive and poorly justified actions — such as banning nearly all non-emergency medicine are evidence of the Governor’s failure to properly manage this crisis.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
1. Call your State Representative and DEMAND that they support Impeachment.
2. Sign my petition to show your support for Impeachment.
3. Donate to help get the message out and get this done.
It’s my mission to Protect The American Dream and that requires removing obstacles between People and Prosperity.
Right now the BIGGEST OBSTACLE is Governor Tim Walz. Therefore, he must be removed.
We have built a solid legal argument for impeachment and frankly it wasn’t even that hard to do given all of the destruction that Governor Walz has done.
With the right coordinated effort we can do this! The facts are the facts and they’re on our side. We simply cannot allow the RINO’s and the DFL to stand between us and the facts. We cannot accept them protecting the Governor from his own missteps.
Of course, as you’ve heard me say over and over this will make the target on my back BIGGER THAN EVER. But that’s okay because all I care about is delivering results for you and your family so you’re free to pursue your version of happiness.
Let’s get this done. Let’s get back to normal.
