Democrat Blames Oklahoma Tornado On Republicans

See, if Republicans would just buy into the political alarmism about global warming, tragedies like the one in Oklahoma wouldn’t happen: While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his

Dorso Column: North Dakota's Executive Branch Is Too Involved In Legislating

The state capitol building in Bismarck is a unique design. But it is what that design signifies or tells that makes it so important. I hope every legislator now and into the future reads this piece. When they or elected officials walk the halls of the capitol I hope they are reminded of the sacrifice

From The Left: Key to Obama Surviving Scandals, Let Republicans Be Republicans

It has not been a particularly good week for our President. For the past six years or so, the President and his supporters have been under constant siege from the right. They talked about his birth certificate, his college records, his family trips, about fast and furious, Black Panther-gate and so many other so-called “scandals.”

Since The Election, MSNBC Has Fallen Back To Fourth Place In The Ratings

Election season was very good to MSNBC in terms of ratings, pushing the network up to second place where they were nipping at the heels of Fox News. But since the election things have been quite a bit slower for the network. At Mediaite, Joe Concha attributes the hyper-partisan network’s decline to being positioned to

IRS Targeting Of Tea Party Groups Reportedly Started In The 2010 Election Cycle

This is a significant development in that it shows, to an even greater degree, that the motivation for the IRS targeting conservative or “tea party” groups was political.

Associated Press: Republicans Pushing Voter ID Laws Because Obama, Democrats Won In 2012

Bob McDonnell has signed legislation into law that will require voters to carry photo identification with them to the polls, starting next year in Virginia. Virginia joins four other states that have strict photo ID requirements

Math-Challenged Democrats Call Republican Oil Tax Bill "Radical And Reckless" Based On Fraudulent Numbers

Because they apparently didn’t get a number that was shocking enough the first time they were grandstanding on this issue, North Dakota Democrats re-calculated the numbers (which in and of itself inspires no small amount of skepticism, their original figure was $596 million) and concluded that a Republican plan to restructure the state’s oil taxes

George Will: "Opposition To Gay Marriage Is Literally Dying"

I’ve written before, to the consternation of many conservative readers of this site, that the GOP’s on-going opposition to gay marriage is foolish as a long-term political strategy. That’s because younger generations of Americans are either agnostic on the issue, or very much opposed to the idea of the state banning gay marriage. And George

Guest Post: Efforts To Reform North Dakota's Pharmacy Law Seem To Have Fizzled

Over the last five years or so, the subject of North Dakota’s unique pharmacy ownership law have been debated in the Legislature as well as the public. During the 2009 and 2011 legislative sessions, bills were introduced in the state House of Representatives, which would have removed the requirement of state law that a pharmacy

Democrats Leave Republicans To Stand Up For Civil Liberties Alone

As Senator Rand Paul took a stand on the floor of the Senate, mounting a 12 hour and 54 minute filibuster of President Obama’s CIA nominee while demanding answers to questions about drone assassination, Democrats were for the most part nowhere to be found: WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans took the floor on Wednesday, launching an
