Letters

Peace, prosperity and freedom already lost

To the editor: The 12-31-2020 letter ‘The election: A Christian perspective’ lamented that Trump lost, and that: “…America’s days of peace, prosperity and freedom may be a thing of the past.” I submit that those attributes would still have been lost even if Trump won. Pat ...

Another Christian perspective

To the editor: In response to, “The election: A Christian perspective:” Dear fellow Christian, a gentle reminder that Christ does not choose leaders or vote in elections. In fact, there is no campaign that Jesus endorses, ever. There has been no evidence of election fraud during this ...

Hard to read all that anti-Trump propaganda

To the editor: It was extremely hard to read The Journal of Dec. 26-27, with all of its anti-Trump false rhetoric and propaganda. When is someone going to start fact-checking the Associated Press and syndicated editorials’ biased stories and remarks? Even the comic on the editorial page was ...

Time for campaign signs to come down

To the editor: My name is Dave Borchert. I am the Chief of Police for the City of New Ulm. This year's election cycle has really gotten people excited and engaged in the political process. The voter turnout was outstanding and this is certainly a positive reflection on society. Also, it was ...

The election – A Christian perspective

To the editor: As the days and weeks go by, and as President Trump’s options for contesting the results of the 2020 election dwindle down to practically nothing, it becomes more and more evident that the Democrats and their allies in the courts and in the media may have successfully carried ...

Have the strength to sign your letters

To the editor: I recently had the unfortunate experience of getting an anonymous letter stating that because I had signs supporting Democratic candidates in my yard, the writer can no longer respect me as a physician. I have strong enough self-esteem that I do not worry about an individual ...

It is NOT official

To the editor: I’d like to respond to your Our View 12-15. Unlike your declaration, it’s NOT official until congress says it is. That might take place about January 6. At least 1/2 this country is sick and tired of the media (non) coverage of the election fraud that took place. You say no ...

Reminder of insurrection penalties

To the editor: Republicans, like Jim Hagedorn, Tom Emmer, and Pete Stauber, who are attempting to overthrow a free and fair election, should keep in mind that U.S. Code 2383, which is titled Rebellion and Insurrection, states: “Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any ...

Electors

To the editor: The Electoral College electors have spoken and upheld the votes and the will of the majority of Americans. This election was always beyond politics. Republican or Democrat, Left or Right, Conservative or Liberal, it was about common human decency and the person who was just ...

Thank you to all medical care workers

To the editor: Yesterday, I spent the afternoon in an Urgent Care room in the New Ulm Medical Center with my mother. Earlier, the nurse and caretakers at Ridgeway on German contacted me that they were concerned about my mother’s health, so I took her to Urgent Care. Fortunately, she did ...

Check the full record on election lawsuits

To the editor: I join the call for our local lawmakers to declare publicly that the election was fair and Joe Biden won. Rep. Hagedorn, Rep. Torkelson, and Sen. Dahms: Do the right thing. Be among the few courageous Republicans willing to speak the truth. I second Dan Beranek’s request for ...

Horse Parade credit

To the editor: I have to clarify and give credit where it’s due. I was not the brainchild behind the Horse Parade Saturday evening for the Assisted Living & Nursing Home Facilities in New Ulm. The idea actual\y came from Adam Towles with Foresee Studios and Michael Looft, New Ulm ...

True information shows Dems cheated

To the editor: I’m commenting on Thomas Kuster’s being upset over President Trump and his investigation of the election fraud that took place all over the nation. Anyone that cares to go beyond the liberally-biased mainstream media (yes, that includes the Associate Press) to get true ...

Energy policy change stuck in Senate

To the editor: An article in the 12/7/20 New York Times reports on a study by European scientists which showed that November 2020 was the hottest November on record. The earth is continuing to become warmer because of human induced climate change. If you really do not want to change from a ...

No need for Climate envoy

To the editor: After reading the Klug’s recent letter I offer some thoughts for consideration. Apparently Joe Biden, when president, will create a new cabinet position for John Kerry; special envoy for climate. As Secretary of State I think Kerry demonstrated his long suit was traveling ...

Republican lawmakers, please help your voters

To the editor: It breaks my heart to imagine some of my fellow retirees, friends of mine who voted for President Trump, taking 5 or 10 dollars out of their Social Security and sending it to Trump to support his futile attempt to find the thousands of non-existent fraudulent votes in the ...

Respect, compassion, sensitivity

To the editor: Opinion writer, Star Parker (12/4/20) believes gender identity is defined only by the sex assigned at birth rather than understand biological brain structure cause for transsexuality. Parker fears a Democrat-controlled Senate would restore rights for the LGBTQ community. The ...

Fellow Americans, what have we got to lose?

To the editor: How many have listened to the unedited, sworn eyewitness accounts of corruption and fraud which have been given in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, and Nevada in the past week? Americans who use the mainstream media as their news source have not heard unbiased ...

Fossil fuels and climate change

To the editor: Climate scientists have informed us of the increasing effects from climate change and what is likely to occur if we continue to burn fossil fuels for energy generation. The fossil fuel companies, such as Exxon mobil have relied on the use of fear, uncertainty, and doubt to ...

Impaired Driving Awareness Month

To the editor: December is National Impaired Driving Awareness Month. The Nicollet County Attorney’s Office wants to remind all drivers about the dangers of impaired driving. Impaired driving — whether an individual is impaired by alcohol, drugs, or other substances — is illegal. It ...
