Clowns to the Left, Jokers to the Right

Clowns to the Left, Jokers to the Right

Yesterday was a bit of an odd day for me. After a couple of days of criticism from myself and others, including my revelation that his office has no written ethics policy, Governor Doug Burgum announced that he would be reimbursing Xcel Energy for $37,000 worth of Super Bowl tickets. The right decision, I think.

Audio Proof That Doug Burgum Isn't Telling The Truth About Pro-Life Bills

I realize that, for a lot of voters, the abortion issue isn’t very important. Some people simply don’t see it as a priority. That’s fine. But I think we can all agree that candidates being honest about their positions on issues, especially candidates with zero track record in public office, is important. Perhaps the most

Burgum Campaign Has A Point About Stenehjem Consultant On The Radio

Here’s the latest chapter in the increasingly petty Republican gubernatorial primary between Doug Burgum and Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem. Apparently Pat Finken of Odney Advertising sat in for Scott Hennen on his syndicated, state-wide talk radio show today. He used his on-air time to talk about the gubernatorial campaign, including bringing on guests like state

Governor Jack Dalrymple talks about syrian refugees

Dalrymple On Refusing Syrian Refugees: "That Is Not Something A State Government Does"

Governor Jack Dalrymple was interviewed by Scott Hennen this morning on the What’s On Your Mind Show and, not surprisingly, Hennen asked about the situation with refugees and security. Specifically, Hennen asked whether or not Dalrymple would do what governor’s in other states have done which is say “no” to Syrian refugees in our state.

Audio: Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem Forms Gubernatorial Campaign Committee

If there was any doubt Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem is running for governor in 2016 I think we can set them aside. Just moments ago Stenehjem told talk radio host Scott Hennen that he has formed a committee to receive campaign contributions already being sent his way. Hennen asked if that means he’s running and

On Television: Gay Marriage, Polygamy, And The Confederate Flag

I was happy to be a part of Chris Berg’s weekly roundtable discussion on 6:30 Point of View this evening and, much as we have all week, we’ve discussed gay marriage and the confederate flag issue. The other panelists were Scott Hennen and former state lawmaker Bette Grande. Our most heated discussion, without a doubt,

On Television: Distrusting The Government, Except When They're Reading Our Email

I was on television last night on Chris Berg’s 6:30 Point of View Program on Valley News Live alongside John Strand from the High Plains Reader (which publishs my column every week if you’re interested) and Scott Hennen. As always, it was a great discussion. We talked about the Waters of the U.S. rule and

Audio: Fargo Forum Editor Defends SB2279 Front Page Targeting "No" Voting Lawmakers

In the middle of the furious response to the North Dakota state House voting down SB2279 – a bill which would have added homosexuals to North Dakota’s protected classes for employment, housing, and commerce – the Fargo Forum newspaper decided to run a front page listing the names and photographs of the lawmakers who voted

On Television: Baesler, Tschosik, And Pro-Life Groups In Fargo Public Schools

Chris Berg asked me to participate in his weekly roundtable discussion on Valley News Live’s 6:30 Point of View program this evening alongside Scott Hennen and Ian Godfrey. You can watch segment one above. You can watch segments two, three, and four here, here, and here respectively. We talked about my post regarding today’s Fargo
