Quote of the Week: “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”
Quote of the Week: "You know, putting a national lockdown, stay at home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history."
Quote of the Week: “The destruction of property in the civil unrest was not positive.”
In This Issue:
It’s important to recall recent history, as the Left and their co-conspirators in the media regularly lie, have the lie disproven, and then simply move on to the next lie.
Don’t believe it? Let’s take a trip down memory lane.
Remember when both KSTP and the Star Tribune published polls in mid-September 2016 that showed Hillary Clinton with a six-point lead in Minnesota? Those are called suppression polls, designed to discourage Republicans from voting.
Remember when the big criticism of the president was over ventilators? The lack of ventilators was going to result in thousands dying in the hallways of overflowing hospitals, with “death panels” deciding who got a ventilator and who didn’t. In other words, who would live and who would die.
Remember when the big criticism was over PPE (personal protective equipment), and front-line workers would be needlessly exposed to COVID?
Remember when, here in Minnesota, the governor was using martial law powers only to “flatten the curve” and preserve hospital resources?
Remember when, even with draconian lockdowns, 22,000 Minnesotans would die from COVID?
Remember when 3,000 ICU beds would be occupied in Minnesota?
Remember when Tim Jong Walz spent $7 million to buy a 71,000 square foot warehouse to store bodies?
Remember when Tim Jong Walz unveiled his “dashboard” of dials and needles to tell us about regaining our freedom?
Remember when the goal in Minnesota was 20,000 daily COVID tests?
Remember when the riots were “mostly peaceful” protests?
Remember when the president colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election?
Remember when the Steele dossier was considered a legitimate document?
Remember when most media outlets at least pretended to be objective?
Remember when Joe Biden supported NAFTA?
Remember when Joe Biden supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal?
Remember when Joe Biden blasted Donald Trump for suspended travel from China?
Remember when the Democrat party wasn’t filled with Anti-Semites?
Above all, remember in November!
VOTING IN 2020
With early in-person voting starting, recall there are essentially three ways to vote in Minnesota.
First, you can vote in person at your regular polling location on Election Day, November 3rd.
Note that it will be very important this year to check your polling location as it may have changed.
For example, some polling locations used to be in or near nursing homes and were moved to reduce exposure for residents of those locations.
You can find your polling location here: https://pollfinder.sos.state.mn.us/
Second, Minnesotans can vote in-person starting today, September 18th.
Note that polling locations for early voting are different than the regular polling location on Election Day.
Voters can vote early at their county election office, usually located in the county courthouse.
Moreover, some cities and towns offer early voting polling locations. Call your city/township or check their web site for information.
Here’s some more information on early, in-person voting:
For most elections, absentee voting locations must be open during their normal business hours starting 46 days before the election. In addition, locations offering absentee ballots for federal, state or county elections must be open:
This does not apply to school districts holding standalone elections.
Some local jurisdictions may provide additional absentee voting days or hours beyond the above required days and times. Call your jurisdiction for more information.
Finally, Minnesotans can vote by mail by requesting an absentee ballot.
Note that any eligible voter can vote absentee without needing to provide a reason for doing so.
Also note that “absentee voting” is not “vote by mail.”
The voter must proactively request their absentee ballot.

After the focus groups and internal polling told Democrats that they had to start condemning the rioting and lawlessness that they had previously celebrated, the paper trail left on the Internet makes it difficult for these pols, including Kamala Harris, to change their tunes.
It has come to light that the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a fund organized to bail people out of jail, has been freeing some pretty vile people who shouldn’t be on the streets.
This fund has been promoted by Kamala Harris and a bevy of virtue signaling Hollywood types.
In addition, at least 13 Hidin’ Biden staffers have claimed they have contributed to the fund.
So, who are some of the good, “mostly peaceful” folks who have been sprung by the fund?
Timothy Wayne Columbus is a registered sex offender. He was bailed out in July. He is currently facing charges of raping an 8-year-old girl.
Richard Kelly is facing charges of burglary and first-degree assault for breaking into his mother’s home and savaging beating her over a number of hours, including taping her wrists and ankles before he beat her. He was bailed out by the fund on August 10th.
Deshaun Boyd was freed on $70,000 bail in July. He has since pleaded guilty to felony first degree aggravated robbery for robbing an elderly man who used a cane. Boyd and an accomplice savagely beat the victim, including “curb stomping” his head.
Boyd faces up to 20 years in prison.
Chris Boswell is a rapist. MFF paid $35,000 in cash to bail out Boswell, who is a twice-convicted rapist. Boswell also is currently charged with sexual assault, assault and kidnapping in two separate cases.
Jaleel Stallings. MFF paid $75,000 to bail out Stallings, who shot at a SWAT Team during May riots with a modified pistol. He was charged with attempted murder.
These are just a sampling of the winners MFF has put back on the streets.
This is today’s Democrat. This is the Harris-Biden ticket.
Welcome to my web site!
I created this website in response to governmental waste and abuse in Anoka County.
Many taxpayers don’t know that our local governments spend millions of tax dollars every year on things like public relations teams, lobbyists, and junkets to places like Hawaii.
Since there seemed to be no place to turn for the “other side” of these issues, I created the Anoka County Watchdog. My intent is to create a one-stop-shop where concerned taxpayers can find fact-supported information and other resources to counter the governmental machine. Many people want to confront their elected officials regarding waste and abuse but feel they don’t have the information they need to make an effective argument. This web site offers that information.
Some of our elected officials in Anoka County have become arrogant and unresponsive, forgetting that they work for the very people who put them in office. It’s high time to hold them accountable for their decisions.
