Audio: In First Radio Ad Heitkamp Touts Casting “Over Half” Her Votes With Trump

A source has provided me with a copy of Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s first radio ad. I’m told it’s set to hit the airwaves next week (full disclosure, I have no idea if this has been submitted to the radio station I work at or not). It’s 60 seconds long and pretty interesting stuff. Not surprisingly

Maybe Now President Obama Understands How the Pipeliners Felt?

Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s Voting Pattern Moves Away From Democrats the Closer She Gets to Election Day

Senator Heidi Heitkamp invests a lot of time in cultivating an image of herself as a centrist. A moderate Democrat. That’s why Heitkamp is playing patty cake with President Donald Trump, a man most of her Democratic base sees as a tyrant. But Republicans, and the NDGOP specifically, tell a different story.

Particularly when control of the White House switches parties. But North Dakota’s federal prosecutor is staying on the job, and the bipartisan consensus among North Dakota’s congressional delegation is that Trump

Congressman Kevin Cramer was on my radio show today live from Washington D.C. where he attended the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump.

By the time most of us here in the Central Time Zone get around to eating our lunches Barack Obama will no longer be our president. This thought brings to my mind a sense of relief. Barack Obama has been the worst President in my lifetime. A rigid, ideologically hidebound man who came into office with

Obama Administration Sends Notice of Intent to Prepare Lengthy EIS for Dakota Access Pipeline Project

President Barack Obama, even as the sun sets on his years in office, has been working diligently to hamstring incoming President Donald Trump.

The Left Begins to Understand the Threats of Expansive, All-Powerful Federal Government

On the Drudge Report this morning was a link to a report about how liberals are “stockpiling” food and guns as we get closer to the reality of a Trump administration. The story was produced by InfoWars, which is a production of conspiracy monger Alex Jones, and I don’t see a lot of facts or

On Friday a group of North Dakota cops, led by Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, wrote a scathing letter to President Barack Obama blasting the federal government’s response to the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
