North Dakota’s Top Elected Officials, Except Senator Heidi Heitkamp, Call on Obama to Help End #NoDAPL Rioting

In a post earlier today I took aim at President Barack Obama for what I perceive as enabling the increasingly violent #NoDAPL rioting here in North Dakota.

North Dakota’s Outgoing Insurance Commissioner Says He Would “Absolutely” Accept Trump Appointment

Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm will be out of office soon. He opted not to run for another term, and yesterday voters elected fellow Republican Jon Godfread to replace him.

Audio: ND Gov. Dalrymple Responds to Obama on Pipeline, “It’s Been Playing Out for More Than a Year”

“The company will be finished laying pipe in North Dakota by this weekend,” Governor Jack Dalrymple told me this afternoon about the Dakota Access Pipeline project.

Audio: Governor Jack Dalrymple Says He Expects Non-Corps #DAPL Construction Completed in “Just a Matter of Days”

This week the governors of three states which the much-protested Dakota Access Pipeline passes through sent a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers urging them to let construction go forward.
