Democrats Attack Congressman Kevin Cramer for Having an Open Mind Trump Budget

Why have North Dakota Democrats been pushed to the margins of the state’s politics? Why has their party been worn down to a small, angry nub of hard core progressives? Part of it is that they promote policies and ideas most North Dakotans simply don’t want. Another part of it is that when it comes

Senator Hoeven Says He Doesn’t Support Trump’s Budget When It Comes to Agriculture

Rural, “red state” America went for Donald Trump in a big, big way. His brand of fiery, and often crude, populism was cat nip for blue collar workers. Including those who work in the agriculture industry. That’s why Trump won states like North Dakota in a landslide. But I wonder if the realities of his

What If, Like That Sinbad Movie You Thought You Saw in the 90’s, Trump’s Comments About Swedish Attack Don’t Exist?

My focus is very much on North Dakota news these days, what with our Legislature in session and all, so I haven’t been spending a lot of time reading past the headlines when it comes to national news stories. Like many of you I got the impression from those headlines  that President Donald Trump had

Cramer Says Heitkamp Promised MHA Tribe She’d Vote to Overturn Federal Flaring Rules

In Congress right now there is an effort to disapprove an Obama administration regulation aimed at the oil industry. The so-called “venting and flaring” rule imposed by the Bureau of Land Management is so colossally broad it impacts not just federal lands but state lands as well. This rule creates a jurisdictional quagmire, which I’m
