In North Dakota House Majority Leader Eric Cantor Says Food Stamps Must Be Separate From The Farm Bill

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor spent the day in North Dakota today alongside Rep. Kevin Cramer. They toured oil operations in western North Dakota, but during an interview with talk radio host Scott Hennen Cantor talked about more than just oil. He also covered the push by his Republican colleagues like Senator Ted Cruz to


Audio: North Dakota State Fair Manager Laughs Off Red Ink

Earlier this week I wrote about the North Dakota State Fair’s red ink problem. Despite record, or near-record, attendance the annual festival has lost $11.4 million since 1999 according to the NDSF Association’s financial disclosures (see below). But NDSF General Manager Renae Korslein disputes the idea that the event loses money. “Whoever read those financial


Radio Hosts Joel Heitkamp, Mike McFeely To Lose Syndication In Western North Dakota

The rumors have been flying in political circles for some time now, but today I can confirm that within thirty days Joel Heitkamp and Mike McFeely will only be broadcasting in Fargo. Currently Heitkamp is syndicated on KFYR AM550 out of Bismarck and KCJB AM910 out of Minot in addition to his KFGO signal. McFeely


Hennen’s Notebook: Planned Parenthood, March For Life And Guns In Church

I wonder if Representative Kathy Hawken (RINO – Fargo) remembers what happened to Senator Curtis Olafson? Given her cheer leading this week for the two NDSU professors who were part of dissing legislators by doing an end-around the law on sex-education curriculum in North Dakota, she could face the same fate at election time. She


Being Right Doesn’t Always Win Elections

At the Grand Forks Herald, opinion editor Tom Dennis uses the occasion of President Obama’s second-term inauguration to argue that Republicans haven’t been winning a lot of elections of late because they aren’t sufficiently caring. After referencing one of Scott Hennen’s columns here on SAB, Dennis writes that the problem with Republicans is that we


A Ghoulish Display Of Political Theater At The State Capitol

DUI policy will be a hot topic in this legislative session thanks to the Fargo-centric media sensationalizing a few tragic DUI crashes. As I’ve written before, the DUI problem in North Dakota a) isn’t nearly as bad as some would have you believe and b) certainly isn’t being solved by “get tough” enforcement policies. But


NDSU Backtracks On Partnership With Planned Parenthood

Alternate headline: University President Suddenly Very Deferential When Legislature Is In Session NDSU President Dean Bresciani was on the Scott Hennen Show today and was asked about his institution’s legally dubious decision to partner with far-left abortion mill mogols Planned Parenthood for sex education. The legislature had already turned down the federal funds in question


Hennen Column: Notebook From A Busy Week

It’s been a long and productive week. My notebook is chock full of tidbits. Since I’m sleep deprived and unable to decide which one is worthy of a column, I have a better idea. I am introducing a new Common Sense Club notebook. – Monday was the day legislators rolled into Bismarck to begin the


Devils Lake Police Chief Responds To Controversy Over Ban On Booze Sales To “Habitual Drunkards”

I sat in for Scott Hennen on his radio show today, and we wanted to talk with Devils Lake Police Chief Keith Schroeder about his city’s ban on selling alcohol to “habitual drunkards.” Unfortunately, Chief Schroder didn’t have time for an interview, but he did send along a list of facts about what his city
