The amazing Betty Folliard, former school board member, Minnesota house representative, and the woman behind a number of important political campaign, has a radio show on AM950 The Progressive Voice of Minnesota (where I occassionally voice as well, but on a different show) called “A Woman’s Place.”

Today, Betty interviewed Minnesota State Auditor Rebecca Otto, who is running for Governor of Minnesota.

Here’s the interview:

Rebecca explains why she is running, and gives us a run down of her background, including the time she took over Michele Bachmann’s old senate district.

I support Rebecca for governor. I know her because she is married to my friend, Shawn Otto, who is well known to all the readers of this blog. This is all connected in an interesting way, which I will write about some time (I don’t think Rebecca or Shawn are aware of that connection, now that I think about it).

So, listen to the podcast, and GIVE HER SOME MONEY HERE.

    They are not aware they are married? Odd.

    Listen to the podcast, you’ll find out if they are aware that they are married, because it is mentioned!

    While you listen to the podcast, also remember the anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre.

    Progressive hmmm? Another word for One World Order Zane you blind or uninformed. Did you get live podcasts from all over Europe during the last Presidential campaign? I did, but unfortunately these cannot be shared. I bet you voted Obama. N Hillary. Ever subscribe to NAJI news for a while? I did. NO, IT’S NOT THE NIGERIAN ARMY AS HOLLYWOOD WANTS ONE TO BELIEVE THAT HAS BEEN SLAUGHTERING CHILDREN,MEN, N WOMEN there since the early 2000s. It is a group of Islamic terrorists whom HRC herself fought to keep OFF the terrorist list, that is who. Why was hubby Bill getting $70,000 per speech at banks all over the world friend or foe? Why are Democratic consumed with ignorant passion over President Trump’s taxes n not the Clinton Foundation? Do you have a list of who. When,why,where,why here hat in history was going on upon each large donation? Did u just ignore those Haitians in protest against Hillary during the campaign? Asking…why here hat here is our money? Seems one of Bill’s buds built a factory there high above the homes and livelihoods of those affected. Or gee, the UK…let us ponder why does Trump have such a hard time getting along with London, despite recent terrorist killings thers? Could it be there are so many refugees there the mayor of London is a Muslim? Back in the 1950s, two Senators easily passed a bill banning all Muslims from our nation and easily passed? Do you know who, what, n why happened to this? Smart men. Europe is over until with barbaric Muslim refugees or do you want that here too? Have children? Don’t mind if your daughter marries a bearded man, 1 of perhaps 4, even underage? Sharia law…gee, HRC said she thought it was fine. Are you gay? Do you have any idea what these Muslims will do to you…and no its not a pretty site. Or maybe a son? Have you seen for Christ’s sake American Jihad…lok..right there on HBO or maybe you don’t mind if he commits suicide with explosives stopped to him all in the name of Allah? Look, America has already seen COMEY have HRC in the palm of his hand n let her go. I wonder how your average Joe Minnesota man or woman would be treated if they destroyed evidence or had unprotected home computers in their basement with classified info on it? Long term jail time right? Yes, we know she had her employees take hammers n smash every unsecured computer..so grow up. There IS proof, okay? Even Australia now is having problems with the barbaric Muslim refugees. Have you the guys to walk down the same streets our soldiers do? I highly doubt it. Good radio station for truths, n sorry if u r an atheist…but American Family Radio is growing stronger every day n tell truth the Democrats n blind sheep liberals believe in truth is reported on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABCA, ETC. DO YOU KNOW HOW TO RESEARCH? FACTS BS FAKE AND HOW TO RESEARCH BACK INTO HISTORY N PRESENT DAY POLITICS TO SEE IF WHAT U HEAR ON FAKE NEWS IS TRUE OR FALSE..SEEMS MY COLLEGE COURSE CAME IN REALLY HANDY. AS YOU SPEAK OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS, WHY WAS OBAMA MAKING EXTREME PLANS FOR THESE SCOURGE OF THE EARTH REFUGEES…MINE CAME RIGHT OFF THE WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE…SECTION NUMBER, LINE # FOR THOSE TOO LAZY OR IGNORANT TO FIND EXACTLY WHAT WAS SO REAL…YET GEE, IT SEEMS FACEBOOK DIDNT LIKE THAT EITHER. LIBERALS WITH FAILED TO POST N ERROR OCCURS PROVEN NOW THEIR DOINGS.AM SO GLAD THEIR COMMUNITY STANDARDS ARE ACTUALLY ILLEGAL. YES, I SENT MY SCREENSHOTS OF EVERYTHING FB DID TO ME ALONG WITH MILLIONS OF INFORMED AMERICANS TRUMP FANS OR NOT..MAYBE JUST CONSERVATIVE OR MAYBE CHRISTIAN. LOL…SHE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL IT REACHES THE HIGHEST LEVELS. KUDOS TO THIS BRAVE WOMAN. WELL, I SAY MY GOODBYES, HOPE YOU ARE WILLING TO PLEDGE YOUR ALLEGIANCE TO ALLAH OR BECOME BEHEADED. OH, FB DID ALOW DEATH THREATS TO BE POSTED ON MY PAGE…JUST HOW THEY BECAME FRIENDS OF MINE I WILL KNOW SOON…YEP, VERY GRAPHIC N GORY OF HOW EACH OF US WILL FIND THEM BREAKING INTO OUR HOMES WHILE OUR BLOOD RAN IN THE STREETS..JUST A TINY..THIS IS A JOKE WAS BARELY VISIBLE. I CHECKED OUT THIS UNKNOWN POSTER ON MY PAGE N HE WAS MUSLIM N SO WE’RE HIS FRIENDS. I REPORTED IT TO FB…N NEVER GOT AN ANSWER? SO NOW IF MY NON-BIASED HISTORICAL N WELL RESEARCHED POSTS FAIL OR ERRORS OCCUR..I SEND FB a screens hot n ask, oh really? Well, I then can repost in 5 minutes. For a crash course on Europe n the UK, view the video on PREPARE TO TAKE AMERICA BACK..real n factual..n you want that here? Are u related to Bin Laden? I wonder. Have you n your Democratic friends no worldly knowledge at all..or do you stand to a in too if there is one world ordet? I am sorry if you are offended…but wake up man. Use your intelligence and writing skills to properly inform…we the people of the United States of America want term limits n no more political careers…same as Trump. Are your buds shaking in their boots? I somehow wonderment thanks for the time.

    “PLEDGE YOUR SELF TO ALLAH”

    Odd given the fundies in the USA inserted “under god” in the pledge and have several times punished people for not pledging to god in the USA….
