Plain Talk Podcast: Armstrong Says Speaker Pelosi “Does Not Want to Give the White House a Win” on Trade

Governor Burgum Should Invite President Trump to Deliver the State of the Union in North Dakota

Things in Washington D.C. have devolved to the point where Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has told President Donald Trump, citing specious security concerns, that he delay his State of the Union address to Congress or deliver that address in writing. Trump, in retaliation, has canceled an overseas trip Pelosi and other lawmakers had

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

Audio: Rep. Cramer Says Spicer Holocaust Comment Was “Dumb” but Maybe “Technically Right”

Congressman Kevin Cramer was on my radio show today for his weekly open phones segment.

Rod St. Aubyn: New Congress, Same Gridlock

Nancy Pelosi Coming To George Sinner's Rescue, Drops Nearly $90k On Advertising

As of the last fundraising reports filed with the FEC, Sinner has raised just over $850,000 to the incumbent’s more than $1.3 million. Of the

Question of the Week: How Much Should Congress be Compensated?

A few days back, House Minority Leader spoke out against possible congressional pay cuts tied to sequester with a rather unique argument: “I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi said. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.” My immediate reaction when hearing

Pelosi: "It's Almost A False Argument To Say We Have A Spending Problem"

“It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem,” Rep. Nancy Pelosi told Fox News’s Chris Wallace today. “We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address.” She also said that “tax subsidies” should be targeted for cuts rather than spending programs. And by “tax subsidies” what Pelosi means

Obama Says We're Not "Takers" As He Seeks to Enshrine Taking

We all know that wealth redistribution is the sine qua non goal of lefties the world over and has been throughout time immemorial.  No need to rehash why, and why it is a terrible idea, here.  What I do want to touch on briefly is how the lefties are moving on to something that should
