AS Dave Blount notes, the Governor of South Dakota has acquitted herself quite well, in large part because she really understands liberties!
While other governors tell us they have no choice but to collapse the economy and impose outlandish extremes of authoritarianism, South Dakota’s Kristi Noem has taken the opposite approach by governing like an American, virus or no virus.
If you have consumed enough media over the past 2 months, you might guess that as a result of Noem’s refusal to impose a lockdown, the entire population of South Dakota has perished from COVID-19. But that’s not how it is turning out:
Noem said that despite earlier projections of a surge on the hospitals in South Dakota and nationwide, “no, we haven’t” seen such a surge. In fact, South Dakota has—again, without a lockdown—cut that number down by 75 percent of the projections, with much less than a hundred people in the hospital.
Despite refusing to lockdown, South Dakota is if anything overprepared.
“I think we’ve got maybe 60 people in the hospital right now,” Noem said in an exclusive interview on Wednesday. “We have 2,500 beds set aside for COVID-19 patients, but we only have 63 in.”
Again we see that the lockdowns that have cost $trillions and tens of millions of jobs are unnecessary, as is dragging parents off in handcuffs for bringing their children to the park as in Colorado and Idaho.
Of course, you will not see Governor Noem featured on CNN, or MSNBS. After all she is a Republican, so she gets the HUSH UP about that woman treatment! And in fact the chattering buffoons have lashed out at Noem, because liberty is ICKY!
“I took an oath when I was in Congress obviously to uphold the Constitution of the United States,” she continued. “I believe in our freedoms and liberties. What I’ve seen across the country is so many people give up their liberties for just a little bit of security and they don’t have to do that.”
She went on to explain that “if a leader will take too much power in a time of crisis, that is how we lose our country. So, I felt like I’ve had to use every single opportunity to talk about why we slow things down, we make decisions based on science and facts, and make sure that we are not letting emotion grab a hold of the situation.”
For such honest, intelligent principles, Gov. Noem was belittled
On MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow” show, Maddow noted that “Kristi Noem has insisted that she still will not issue a stay-at-home order in her state.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who was a guest on Maddow’s show, said: “The governor just lets this problem get bigger and bigger and bigger.”
There goes Sen. Flapping Gums, proving her inability to grasp reality. Democrats hate women like Gov. Noem because only women who “know their place” are to be listened to.
Detroit Democrats plan to vote to censure and bar any future endorsements of a Democratic lawmaker who credited President Donald Trump with advocating for the drug that she said cured her of COVID-19.
State Rep. Karen Whitsett, D-Detroit, broke protocol by meeting with President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence during an April 14 meeting of COVID-19 survivors, during which she credited hydroxychloroquine for saving her life, a Democratic district leader said.
“Thank you for everything that you have done,” Whitsett told Trump at the meeting. “I did not know that saying thank you had a political line. … I’m telling my story and my truth, and this how I feel and these are my words.”
Her reward for surviving and then, putting politics aside and showing respect and gratitude. Excommunication from the Plantation!
