Politico: ND Senate Race Becoming Less Competitive Despite Democrat Polling

In their most recent profile of America’s Senate races, Politico downgrades the North Dakota campaign between Democrat Heidi Heitkamp and Republican Rick Berg even after Democrats released yet another poll claiming they are winning. Reporter Dave Catanese says he’s been shown polling by Republicans showing the race breaking for Rick Berg. On the same day


Third Parties Get Big Victory In Getting Sponsorships Pulled From Presidential Debates

Not be included in candidate debates is a perennial gripe from third-party candidates, and they have a point. While those who sponsor debates say that the third-party candidates don’t meet some metric of popular support for inclusion in the events, it’s hard to imagine how third-party candidates can ever meet that threshold when they are


Pentagon Says US Troops To Blame For “Friendly Fire” Deaths Because They Insulted Islam

We are living in an upside down world. Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers have been killed by “green on blue” attacks this year alone. The situation is so bad that the training of Afghan forces has been temporarily suspended.

The Media Have Made Themselves A Threat To American Democracy

Patrick Caddell – who served as pollster for President Jimmy Carter as well as former Senators Gary Hart and Joe Biden others – sees some real problems in the way the media covers America’s political events. An excerpt from a speech he delivered to an Accuracy in Media conference called the “Audacity of Corruption:” The


Why Is The Media Treating Mitt Romney As The Incumbent?

On What Planet Has Heidi Heitkamp Been Running A Positive Campaign?

In a poll paid for by Democrats, which questioned a sample of North Dakotans provided to the pollster by the Democrats, and which not at all suspiciously upheld every single Democrat talking point about the state’s Senate race, this may stand out as the most outrageously inaccurate finding: More poll respondents thought Berg was running


Thanks Fracking: Natural Gas Boom Lowers Energy Bills By 41%

Even as Hollywood prepares to launch a cinematic assault on fracking by way of a Matt Damon movie – funded by a foreign energy cartel – the oil and gas boom made possible by fracking is lowering energy rates around the nation. Case in point, Pennsylvania, where consumers are enjoying as much as a 41%


Another Electric Car Is A Flop

The problems with and sluggish sales of General Motor’s electric car, the Chevy Volt, have been well documented but it’s worth noting that the Volt isn’t the only electric car failure on the market. As sales plummet, Nissan is currently trying to prop up sales of their Leaf model with steep discounts that come in


Heidi Heitkamp’s Brother Is No Boon To Her Campaign

If there was ever any doubt that the Fargo Forum was fully behind liberal Democrat Heidi Heitkamp for Senate, let today’s front page lay it to rest: The article is a glowing profile of the candidate and her brother, a loyal mouthpiece willing to attack her enemies and spin out her talking points relentlessly.
