Bernard Olson: We Can’t Afford the Democrats’ Meritless Immigration System

This guest post was submitted by Bernard Olson, a retired Deputy Patrol Agent from Bottineau. President Trump has long supported a merit-based immigration system, but the Democrats remain committed to opening our borders to freeloaders who sap resources from welfare programs designed to help American citizens. A report just released by the Center for Immigration Studies finds that illegal

If We Want to Implement a Pointless Ban of Bump Stocks We’re Going to Need New Laws

President Donald Trump’s administration has announced a new ban for bump stocks. These are simple mechanical devices which make it possible to fire semi-automatic firearms more rapidly than you would be able to using only your trigger finger. A device like that was used by the Las Vegas shooter in his deadly attack last year.

On Day of Heitkamp’s Farewell Speech, Democrat Leader in the Senate Trashes North Dakota

It’s pretty clear that Democrats don’t have much affinity for states like North Dakota. Even our liberal friends right here in North Dakota often talk about our state as though they wish they lived somewhere else. What’s kinda rare, though, is when Democrats come right out and admit this stuff. Today there was a remarkable

Trump Isn’t Handling General Motors Any Better Than Obama Did

In the dawn of the Obama administration General Motors, hit hard by declining sales and the Great Recession, went to the federal government for help. The Obama administration obliged, arguing that it would be a good deal for the American taxpayer. On top of billions in straight-up bailouts, President Obama gave GM some $30 billion

Kari Bitz: What President Trump’s ‘Buy American’ Order Means to My Local Business

This guest post was submitted by Kari Bitz, a North Dakota business owner and author from Bismarck. It may not make headlines in the national news, but President Trump’s “Buy American” policies have been life-changing for my family and me. As small business owners in Bismarck, my husband and I were surprised when we received

New York Times Uses Same Misleading Photo of Soybean Pile the Heitkamp Campaign Got Caught Using

Farm state Democrats like Senator Heidi Heitkamp have attacking President Donald Trump’s trade policies, arguing they’ve been bad for the agriculture industry. Which is fair. We can debate the point, but promoting contrasting views on important policies like trade tariffs is exactly what campaigns should be about (and aren’t nearly about enough). Still, a specific

Do We Only Care About Security Costs When Republicans Visit North Dakota?

President Trump has made multiple visits to Fargo this election cycle in support of U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer, and the reaction from incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s surrogates in the press was to get bent out of shape about the cost of security. Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney even requested that Republicans reimburse law enforcement expenses.

Podcast: Birthright Citizenship, Complaints About Heitkamp Canvassers, Measure 3, Marc Lotter

President Trump Shouldn’t End Birthright Citizenship Through Executive Order

In an interview with Axios, President Donald Trump has announced that he’ll attempt to end birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants by way of an executive order. I say attempt, because any order his administration issues is sure to be immediately challenged in the courts, and his ability to change this policy unilaterally
