The New Governor of South Dakota Chose To NOT Shut Down State Economy This Year


This is the best speech, so far, at the CPAC Convention.  South Dakota Governor, Kristi Noem said,  ‘Covid didn’t crush the economy…the government crushed the economy…’ the only state to refuse to shut down was South Dakota.  South Dakota had a fairly high death rate per thousand but not any greater than say, Arizona or Mississippi, etc.  The key difference was, South Dakota didn’t also kill its economy while suffering from the disease.


South Dakota had seven deaths from the germs this last 24 hours and 186 new cases.  This is roughly how my own county in NY state has suffered.  A comparison of Manhattan cases of this disease compared to South Dakota:



Fewer cases, more deaths, nearly double the number of deaths.  Yesterday, the death toll from the disease in Manhattan yesterday was double that of South Dakota.  Manhattan is on lock down for months now while South Dakota never locked down.


Yes, people died in South Dakota but the economy didn’t die.  This is infinitely better than killing both people AND the economy.


Nearly 200,000 in South Dakota were vaccinated already which is around 20% of the population.  Here is my state, NY, which lags greatly:



Barely 7% have been vaccinated, so far.  Our governor dragged his heels from the start, whining all the while.  He is now heading towards being removed from office, thank heavens.


The speech yesterday by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem was a show stopper.  She is an excellent speaker who speaks clearly and honestly.  She is intelligent and serious unlike Pelosi and her fellow gang members who sneer and whine all the time.  Killing the entire economic condition we need for our survival doesn’t do much better than letting normal life proceed.  This is an important lesson.


The new Governor of SD grew up on a farm.  Her father died in a farm accident so she had to take over and save the family home and livestock and fields.  She had a very tough life and matured in a wonderful way.  She wasn’t coddled at all.  And she would make a fine President some day and I could see voting for her.


Hawaii and Nevada had the highest unemployment rates in December, 9.3 percent and 9.2 percent, respectively. Nebraska and South Dakota had the lowest rates, 3.0 percent each.


In total, 25 states had jobless rates lower than the U.S. figure of 6.7 percent, 10 states and the District of Columbia had higher rates, and 15 states had rates that were not appreciably different from that of the nation. (See tables A and 1.)


I see great things in Governor Noem’s future.  There are others on the conservative side equally capable.  I hope to see more from all of these new, rising stars.

    off topic..Davos man

    from slate
    At the helm of Salesforce is a man named Marc Benioff. He owns Time magazine. He’s been throwing his weight around politically for a while now, going to Davos, supporting various “liberal” [anti-White] causes.
    “Benioff was raised in a Jewish family[5][6] long established[7] in the San Francisco Bay Area.”
    You know what they say: Toxic semitism and virulent, unreasoning anti-White hatred — just two sides of the same slimy shekel.

    There are seven states that refused to lockdown.

    “She had a very tough life and matured in a wonderful way”. But, but she has white privilege. /sarcasm off

    Noem gave a great speech!
    She is a rising star now.

    She got 1.4 million views
    on Forbes News Channel.

    That’s just on one youtube channel.

    Cuomo is toast. He’s an embarrassment and pending results of investigation – maybe worse; esp. if he if involved in coverup of COVID deaths at old folks homes. Maybe far worse than cringe worthy sex talk. Life & Death.
    Hubris strikes again.
    Similar to Cruz, psychos are attracted to positions of power like moths to a flame.
    Regardless of political party affiliation. Imo of course.

  6. Zeke, darling, ALL people who are in politics want power. Duh. I did, too, when I was playing hardball in NYC, for example. We tear at each other’s throats! DUH. DEATH THREATS are made, too! People go to PRISON, also! DUH.

    The trick is, are these people telling the truth or lying? It matters a great deal, you know, not that you can figure this out on your own.
