An Ohio nonprofit organization that is friendly toward the president commended South Dakota’s governor for being an influential mother.
Moms for America (MFA) has declared Kristi Noem as the group’s Mother of Influence Award winner for 2020.
MFA President Kimberly Fletcher praised the Republican governor for providing South Dakotans with the knowledge and resources to learn to take responsibility for their health throughout the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic.
“She speaks truth … we need more people who will stand up for truth, for freedom, for family, and be that common sense voice that we need,” Fletcher said, according to Breitbart. “She actually follows the science that they keep telling us we should follow, and she institutes policies that are going to promote freedom and … to actually fix problems instead of creating them.”
Noem repeatedly refused to introduce extreme lockdown measures, borrow huge amounts of money, and make generations of taxpayers pay the bill to help contain the CCP Virus. She strongly advocated for residents to learn to fend for themselves instead of always relying on the government to take care of everyone.
“Rather than following the pack and mandating harsh rules, South Dakota provides our residents with information about what is happening on the ground in our state—the science, facts, and data,” she said in an opinion article published by the Wall Street Journal. “We ask all South Dakotans to take personal responsibility for their health, the health of their loved ones, and—in turn—the health of our communities.”
The latest CCP Virus tally shows this strategy appears to be working, with the Mount Rushmore State ranking among 11 states that boast the nation’s lowest number of infections.
Since the beginning of 2020, the state has recorded 91,038 infections and 1,259 deaths, according to the Worldometer website. South Dakota also has the nation’s third-lowest unemployment rate of 3.6 percent and even expects a $19.1 million surplus for 2020.
Noem’s husband, Bryon, was also recognized for supporting his wife’s career ambition to become South Dakota’s first female governor. Bryon has taken a greater responsibility in raising their son Booker, 26, and two daughters Kassidy and Kennedy, 23 and 18, respectively.
“You know that man has to be awesome because she cannot do what she does without him,” Fletcher said.
Noem humbly accepted her trophy and, in her acceptance speech, revealed her greatest legacy will be her “children.”
My Pillow founding CEO Michael Lindell separately won the American courage category for continuing to support President Donald Trump, despite the House Democrat-led impeachment inquiry and highly disputed outcome of the November election.
“[I am] so honored to receive the ‘American Courage Award’ from Moms for America,” he said on Facebook. “My good friend Governor Kristi Noem received the ‘Mother’s of Influence Award.'”
