The Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan Is Unnecessary

The Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan Is Unnecessary

“Most states on track to meet emissions targets they call burden, but not North Dakota” That was a headline from Reuters over the weekend what detailed how many states (but not, you know, North Dakota) are on track to comply with the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan even as some of those states are suing over

Obama Administration Blames North Dakota Flooding On Global Warming

As a part of his war on coal climate change agenda President Obama’s administration has issued “fact sheets” about the various states. Below is the “fact sheet” for North Dakota (White House link here) which makes some pretty illogical assumptions about flooding and other issues in the state. I don’t think you’ll hear many local

Schafer Column: North Dakota Is No Stranger To Sequester-Style Budget Gimmicks

The recent news articles about the National Park Service not being able to keep open the Painted Canyon Overlook at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park is a sure example of how government officials are trying to show the lowly citizens how wrong they are to demand a more affordable government. “We’ll show them they need

Heidi Heitkamp Caught Not Standing Up To Obama Again

Obama Administration: Drone Strikes On US Citizens Are "Legal, Ethical And Wise"

A leaked Department of Justice “white paper” makes the case for the legal killing of US citizens abroad who the government defines as imminent threats to national security, and it states that actual evidence or intelligence showing that the target is actually involved in a plot or a plan to attack the US isn’t necessary.

Obama Administration: We Can Use "Executive Action" To Implement Gun Control

Vice President Joe Biden is saying that President Obama may not need Congress to implement tough new gun control laws. “The president is going to act,” the Vice President said today. “There are executives orders — executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with

Anti-Gun Group Runs Ads: "Shame On You Senator Heidi Heitkamp"

To me Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s recent comments about gun control were just more of the blatant posturing of a left-wing politician desperate to ingratiate herself with a center-right constituency that we’ve come to expect from her. Heitkamp held on to a Senate seat Democrats have held since 1960 by the slimmest of margins. She knows
