Guest Post: Fargo Businesses Hold Pro-Abortion Fundraiser

While most North Dakotans were finally enjoying some summer weather and precious time with family and friends, the Red River Abortion Facility held a fundraiser in downtown Fargo.

After Getting Called Out, Suddenly Heidi Heitkamp Cares About Spirit Lake Scandal

Earlier this week Rep. Kevin Cramer called out Senator Heidi Heitkamp over her position on the child abuse scandals at Spirit Lake.

A major Minnesota wind project which initially saw investment from billionaire T. Boone Pickens before being sold to New Era is on the ropes. “New Era has no confidence that due process for this project will ever end, nor that an ABPP (Avian and Bat Protection Plan) will ever be approved, however comprehensively and carefully

Bismarck High School Students Propose Pro-Gay Marriage Legislation

I think North Dakota should legalize gay marriage, and polling trends suggest that North Dakotans are becoming increasingly sympathetic to doing just that,but what’s becoming tiring is North Dakota’s school kids pushing legislation. It started as cute little publicity stunts – elementary students pushing for a bill to name a state bug with guidance from

UND’s Vice Presidents Circling The Wagons Around Kelley

After outgoing Chancellor Hamid Shirvani ripped UND President Robert Kelley (and a couple of others) in an assessment, a who’s-who of the university’s bloated administration is circling the wagons around him. Shirvani recommended no salary increase for Kelley (he’s already making north of $340,000/year) and only a one-year contract extension, but Kelley’s minions want their

City Official: New Protections For Homosexuals Will Make Little Difference

Despite the attention the issue gets, there’s little actual data to suggest that there’s any real problem with housing or employment discrimination against homosexuals. On the issue of housing discrimination specifically, I spoke with then-Labor Commissioner Tony Weiler back in April who told me that complaints over discrimination against homosexuals were not only minimal in

City Plans School Building Spending Spree With State Property Tax Relief Payment

The Spirit Lake Indian Reservation has dire problems, most recently manifested in the death of a young child that is being investigated by the feds.

In The North Dakota University System, The Presidents Are The Problem

Yesterday SAB broke the news about outgoing Chancellor Hamid Shirvani raking several of North Dakota’s university presidents over the coals in his first, and last, evaluation of them (Shirvani will leave his post for two years of golden parachute time in the middle of next month). Many of Shirvani’s critics responded to the evaluations as

President Obama Is Asking For Trust In A Government That Hasn’t Earned It

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about government, it’s that the power it has tends to get abused. We can talk about recent scandals (the IRS targeting conservatives) or old ones (the IRS targeting Nixon’s enemies, the spying on the civil rights movement, etc., etc.), but we know it happens. So it’s cold comfort when
