President Heidi Heitkamp Described As “Amazing” Rejects The Keystone Pipeline

On September 19, 2008, TransCanada submitted its first permit to the U.S. State Department to build a pipeline across the American/Canadian border. It only took 2,605 days – 7 years, one month, and 19 days – for the Obama administration to reject the permit. According to the Wall Street Journal, Obama’s reason for the rejection is


Forget The Injunctions, Courts Seem To Be Buying States’ Case Against Waters Of The US Rule

A few weeks ago the federal district court here in North Dakota issued an injunction blocking the Obama administration’s controversial Waters of the U.S. rule. But the Obama administration decided to interpret the ruling as applying only to the 13 states, including North Dakota, which are challenging the law in court. So they pushed ahead


If We Want To Really Address Mass Shootings We Need To Stop Talking About Gun Control

We got horrible news out of Oregon yesterday where another group of people were shot down by a murderer who ignored the prohibitions of a “gun free zone.” Like clockwork President Barack Obama addressed the nation about the incident, and despite knowing almost nothing about the specifics of this incident, demanded more gun control. “What is


What Can Heidi Heitkamp’s Iran Vote Tell Us About Her 2016 Intentions?

North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp kicked off a waiting game yesterday when she said, in the wake of Governor Jack Dalrymple’s announced retirement, that she would announce her intentions with regard to running for that office “sooner rather than later.” People I’ve spoken to say that’s probably September. Until then, it’s anyone’s guess as to


Video: President Barack Obama Says Harvesting Organs From Living Human Beings Is “Cruel”

Only, President Obama isn’t talking about the organ harvesting you’re thinking of: President Barack Obama told a group of young African leaders on Monday that harvesting organs from humans that are killed as part of an African ritual was “craziness” and a “cruel” tradition that needed to stop. He warned of dehumanizing marginal groups of


The Shallow Politics Of Digital Populism

What do you do when the masses threaten to turn on a high-profile and very controversial diplomatic deal? Placate them with celebrities, it seems. “Morgan Freeman, Jack Black and a host of other celebrities star in a video backing Americas’ nuclear deal with Iran, wise-cracking their way through an often surreal mixture of Hollywood, politics


Apparently The Reward For Loser Democrat Candidates Is A Cushy Federal Appointment

In 2009, after he lost his 2008 campaign to become Insurance Commissioner, Democrat Jasper Schneider was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve as the Director of the USDA’s Rural Development Office in North Dakota. It’s a cushy job which pretty much consists of going around the state and handing out big checks paid for


Rod St. Aubyn: Barack Obama Has Made America Less Safe

With the recently announced Iran Nuclear Accord, the Obama administration has not made America and the Middle East safer, but in reality less safe. I have never been more concerned with this administration than with this announcement. Instead of dealing with what is truly an “Evil Empire”, we have given the radical terrorists a real


Matt Evans: Our President Is Wrong Again About Gun Violence

President Obama was quick to get some camera time after this week’s shooting at a church in South Carolina.  The President transitioned from talking about the shooting into a critique of America’s gun laws. You can see his comments here. At about 3 minutes into the video, the President starts.  He laments that this is
