Bad candidates = bad results

This article highlights the fact that money isn’t everything in politics. According to statistics reported by Minnesota’s Campaign Finance Disclosure Board, “party groups and political action committees supporting DFL candidates outspent their Republican opponents in 2016, according to end-of-year finance statements that were due Tuesday with the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board from […]

ABM mailer: Dorholt is pro-special interest

Friday afternoon, I received a mailer that was paid for by the Alliance for a Better Minnesota Action Fund. This mailer touted Zach Dorholt because he’ll “protect a woman’s right to choose, fight back against attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, work to pass paid family leave and make childcare more affordable.” The opening paragraph of […]

Dan Wolgamott, far left lefty

If you look at Dan Wolgamott’s issues page, it’s pretty clear that he’s a big government liberal attempting to sound like a centrist. It’s clear that Mr. Wolgamott wants to paint himself as a centrist by saying that he’d “work across party lines to move our state forward.” If Mr. Wolgamott is that interested in […]

ABM talks unity in Minnesota

ABM Executive Director Joey Davis just sent me an email that’s essentially pure propaganda. The email starts with “Funding our schools so our children have a great start in life. Closing corporate loopholes so small businesses have a level playing field. Making the economy work for all of us, not just the wealthy. These are […]

Twin Cities DFL shafts Iron Range

Once again, the Twin Cities DFL shows its indifference towards the Iron Range’s blue collar workers. This post is the latest thumb in the Iron Range’s eye. ABM’s first paragraph starts by saying “Minnesota has seen many victories for working families this year. On August 1, the minimum wage increase that Governor Dayton and Democratic […]

ABM’s BS factory working overtime

The Alliance for a Better Minnesota, aka ABM, is the DFL’s BS machine. These days, it looks more like a BS factory than anything else. This post’s content is almost totally BS. In a blatant display of dishonesty, ABM insists that “Daudt and his Republican colleagues have pursued a harmful, Trump-like agenda.” That’s interesting. It’s […]

ABM, Orlando and #StopHate

If anyone thinks that hardline lefties care a bit about the truth, they need to rethink things. This propaganda piece isn’t just dishonest. It’s frightening in that ABM isn’t interested in fixing the problem. Susie Merthan’s propaganda piece opens by saying “The Orlando shooting is a tragedy. Unfortunately, for now, it’s just the most recent […]

ABM’s dishonesty continues

ABM’s latest dishonest statement is really a beauty. Notice the slipperiness in the wording. ABM’s statement starts by saying “This morning, Speaker Daudt (R-Crown/Stanford Township/Zimmerman), the highest ranking Republican in the state, said that Donald Trump is great for the Minnesota Republican Party.” That isn’t what Speaker Daudt said. What Speaker Daudt did say is […]

Here’s the DFL’s double dipper

This morning, I wrote this article to highlight the DFL’s smear campaign has already started. In the article, I quoted Rep. Melissa Hortman as saying something that’s pure projectionism. When asked if Republicans wanted a transportation bill, Rep. Hortman replied “I think this is the problem when you hire the people who drafted your attack […]

Campaign double-dipping?

Last night, I noticed several tweets from the DFL side from Susie Merthans. After the session ended, a loyal reader of LFR sent me the link to ABM’s statement. According to the statement, Merthans is identified as “the Communications Director at Alliance for a Better Minnesota.” That’s an attention-grabber because Ms. Merthans’ Twitter profile says […]

Still in session, spin begins

I knew that the DFL and ABM would start spinning things after they created a mess but this is ridiculous. While the legislature was still in session, Susie Merthans started spinning things. She quoted Paul Thissen as saying “Modest victories are due to Gov Dayton & DFL Senate dragging GOP kicking and screaming across the […]

The DFL’s slight of hand trick

After reading this DFL puff piece, it would difficult to prove that it wasn’t written by ABM’s spinmeisters and given to these Strib stenographers. (They aren’t reporters because they didn’t question any of the DFL’s statements.) For instance, the title is intellectually dishonest. The Strib’s title is “There’s no evidence that ultra-rich are fleeing Minnesota.” […]

Joe Davis’s mythical Minnesota

Most people don’t know what Joe Davis does or what he believes. Let’s start filling in the multitude of blanks about Davis by telling people that he’s the chief propagandist Executive Director of ABM. The Alliance for a Better Minnesota, aka ABM, is the chief propaganda unit of the DFL. The morning after Donald Trump’s […]

Paul Thissen, unrepentant spinner

I used to think that the Alliance for a Better Minnesota, aka ABM, was the most dishonest collection of progressives in Minnesota. I’m rethinking that, not because I think ABM suddenly became an integrity-filled organization but because Rep. Paul Thissen is a disgustingly dishonest person. I’m writing this because Rep. Thissen is dishonest and deceptive. […]

ABM, DFL, Bakk, driving jobs out

This article highlights another instance in which the DFL is trying to drive companies out of Minnesota. They shouldn’t be blamed, though. Democrats in Washington, DC, are attempting to drive companies out of the U.S. Specifically, “Senate DFLers are pushing a more generous paid family leave than the three states that require it, mandating up […]

ABM hates the Iron Range

Though they’ll deny it, there’s indisputable proof that ABM, aka the Alliance for a Better Minnesota, hates the Iron Range. The indisputable proof is found in their opposition to mining on the Range. Joe Davis, ABM’s Executive Director, issued this statement on the House passing an unemployment extension bill for laid-off Iron Range workers. It […]

Yesterday’s DFL lies, Part II

This picture shows just how disgustingly dishonest the DFL is: The agenda for this year’s special session is still being negotiated but the Alliance for a Better Minnesota is already lying about Jim Knoblach’s votes. In the interest of honesty and integrity, I’m proposing that the Alliance for a Better Minnesota be renamed. I’m open […]

Gov. Dayton: unbound = unhinged

When Gov. Dayton said that he wasn’t running for office again, he said that he was finally “unbound.” What he really meant is that he’s finally unhinged. Insisting that the legislature pass Education Minnesota’s universal pre-K program appears to have turned Gov. Dayton into a walking diatribe machine. Doug Grow has noticed that Gov. Dayton’s […]

ABM’s latest ad campaign

ABM is launching another ad campaign, this time to push Gov. Dayton’s universal pre-K initiative across the finish line. Predictably, ABM’s latest campaign is filled with dishonesty: “Minnesota Republicans — especially in the House — need to be held accountable for putting corporations ahead of working families’ priorities,” says Alliance for a Better Minnesota Executive […]

Ken Martin, the DFL and ABM

There hasn’t been much of a dispute as to whether the DFL is attached at the lip with the Alliance for a Better Minnesota, aka ABM. After watching Almanac’s opening interview tonight, the debate is over on that. Ken Martin and the DFL are definitely attached at the lip to ABM. During the opening part […]
