Print Column: The Left Can’t Complain About Trump’s Fabulism While They Perpetuate Their Own

Ever noticed how the news media appends words like “without evidence” to claims President Donald Trump makes? I don’t blame them. Our president’s endless adventures with falsehood are undeniable. The man lies, with bald-faced constancy, about things both trivial and consequential. The examples are far too numerous to list here. Yet while Trump may be the most

Heidi Heitkamp Rails Against “Ultra-Conservative” Judges, but She Voted for Most of Them

Since I write about politics for a living I end up on a lot of political email lists. I also have a lot of political emails forwarded to me. Which I don’t mind since it allows me to kind of monitor the zeitgeist of campaign messaging in a given moment. Today a reader forwarded me

Print Column: If Democrats Want to Re-Elect Trump, They Should Impeach Kavanaugh

MINOT, N.D. — I’m not a very demonstrative person. Still, I laughed right out loud when I read the excuse House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) had for not pursuing the impeachment against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. I scared my dog, Molly, even. “We have our hands full with impeaching the president right

Democrats and the News Media Undermine Their Own Case Against Trump Once Again

There are plenty of reasons to be critical of President Donald Trump, from valid critiques of his policies to the disappointment we should all feel for how he comports himself while holding our most prominent elected office. Unfortunately, valid criticism of Trump very often gets undermined by shoddy reporting and vapid sensationalism. We had another

The “One Decision” Heidi Heitkamp Would Take Back Isn’t Outing Sexual Assault Survivors but Calling on Al Franken to Resign

I’m certain that former Senator Heidi Heitkamp has a lot to regret these days. Not winning her re-election campaign last year is no doubt one of them, but you’d think she’d be regretful about things less self-serving than that too. Like her campaign’s outing of sexual assault survivors, perhaps. Or her state political party’s efforts

Out of State Activists Offered Plane Tickets on Social Media to Campaign for Heitkamp in North Dakota

When news broke earlier this month of Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s gusher of out-of-state campaign contributions, earned thanks to her vote against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh despite polls showing North Dakotans wanted him confirmed, the response I heard most from people was this: “How is she going to spend it all?” It’s a fair point.

Connie Krapp: Heitkamp and Collins, Heart Over Head?

This guest post was submitted by Connie Krapp, a Jamestown resident who worked for a North Dakota electric cooperative for 22 years. Sunday night on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” two female senators, North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and Maine Sen. Susan Collins, were interviewed about their votes on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The path

Podcast: Cramer Says Polling Lead Has Him Fighting “Complacency” in Campaign, NRA Says Kavanaugh Vote Drew Them to Oppose Heitkamp

On the radio show today, NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen said it was Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s vote against appointing Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court which drew them to endorse in the North Dakota Senate race. “WE were kind of laying low in this race,” she told me, but when Heitkamp voted against Kavanaugh “that sealed

Print Column: The Left Wants to Marginalize States Like North Dakota in National Politics

MINOT, N.D. — As Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court over the weekend mobs of angry protesters sowed chaos in our nation’s capital. For the sin of not treating uncorroborated accusations as gospel, these left wing activists promised they are going to take the gloves off. Rep. Steve Scalise was shot, along with

Report: As Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp Didn’t Push for Prosecution of Sexual Assault and Abuse in the 1990’s

A bit of a bombshell from Fox News this morning: North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp did not push to prosecute individuals responsible for physical and sexual abuse of students when she was the state’s Attorney General, with one accused school employee subsequently sexually assaulting a child. Heitkamp, who served as the North Dakota’s attorney general
