Former North Dakota Democratic Party Chairman Says Senator Heitkamp’s Rejection of #TheResistance Is “Final Straw”

Former North Dakota Democratic Party Chairman Says Senator Heitkamp’s Rejection of #TheResistance Is “Final Straw”

I’ve been writing for some time now about a hard-left faction of the North Dakota Democratic Party being unhappy with Senator Heidi Heitkamp. The only Democrat, I should point out, who has won an election on North Dakota’s statewide ballot since 2008. SAB readers will remember that during the Democratic National Committee convention in 2016

Audio: New NDGOP Youth Leader Says Trump Has Created “New Wave” of Excitement Among Young Voters

Last week the North Dakota Republican Party announced the creation of a new position, that of Chairman of the North Dakota Young Republicans. Named to fill that position is 18 year old Langdon student Dawson Schefter who has a laundry list of accomplishments not the least of which is owning his own sign business for

Congressman Cramer on Trump Scandals: “Giving the Middle Finger to the Police Officer Isn’t a Good Idea”

With Trump-related controversies dominating the headlines it seems Republicans are opting to two specific defenses. First, that a press corps that is biased against Republicans, generally, and detests Trump, specifically, is misleading the public and overreacting to explainable events. Second, that there is a political conspiracy in the federal government which has, as its agenda, undermining

For the Left Comey Went From Scapegoat to Martyr Pretty Darn Quick

I don’t think President Donald Trump handled the firing of (now former) FBI Director James Comey all that well. For one thing, it wasn’t all that long ago that Trump was expressing to Comey how much confidence he had in the man. This, from January: When Mr. Comey and the president-elect met at Trump Tower

Former NDGOP Head, Recently Elected Supreme Court Justice Named as Possible Trump Judicial Appointees

This week President Donald Trump began the process of announcing appointments to more than 100 openings in the federal judicial system. The names of a few North Dakotans are being thrown around as potential appointees for the 8th Circuit. According to Above the Law, which has a pretty good track record on this stuff, attorney

Democrats Aiming Vindictive Politics at Wrigley and U.S. Attorney Appointment

President Barack Obama made a very poor choice when he appointed Timothy Purdon to be U.S. Attorney for North Dakota back during his first years in office. Purdon’s hyper-partisan background caused delays in his Senate appointment process (he was appointed directly from the Democratic National Committee) and shortly after taking office he announced prosecution of

Please Stop Calling for Stephen Colbert to Be Fired

I’m sure you’ve all heard, but late night host Stephen Colbert said some pretty ugly things about President Donald Trump recently. “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c**k holster,” he said during diatribe on his CBS show (video here if you care to watch). This has prompted widespread calls

Trump’s EPA Head Scott Pruitt to Governor Doug Burgum: “The Days of Coercive Federalism Are Over”

Back during last year’s election I had lunch with then-gubernatorial candidate Doug Burgum and we talked about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. At the time a lot of people, including this observer, were surprised at Burgum’s fulsome endorsement of Trump’s candidacy. He was (and still is) a hugely controversial and divisive figure even among Republicans. Burgum explained

Turns Out Those Efforts to Buy the Internet Histories of Politicians Were Kind of a Scam

Remember earlier this year when social media was full of rage that Congress, and President Trump, had blocked an Obama-era internet privacy rule from going into effect? The most common refrain was that Congress, and the President, had given internet service providers the ability to sell your browsing history. Dozens of online fundraising efforts sprung
