Still No Word From Heitkamp On Protecting America's Nuclear Arsenal

Yesterday Senator John Hoeven sent out a press release detailing his efforts to oppose President Obama’s efforts to shrink the nation’s nuclear arsenal. This is important not just because the Minot Air Force Base here in North Dakota has, as one of its most important missions, the servicing of nuclear missiles in the state but

Heidi Heitkamp, John Hoeven Help Pass Unconstitutional Violence Against Women Act

During the North Dakota Senate campaign last year, liberal Democrat Heidi Heitkamp was quick to lambaste her opponent Rick Berg for a “war on women” because House Republicans were resisting the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

But the base belief is that women shouldn’t be treated as inferior, or

Heidi Heitkamp Doesn't Want Bigger Deficits So She'll Vote To Raise The Debt Ceiling

I had to laugh when I heard this news report from Senator Heidi Heitkamp who says she’ll vote to raise the debt ceiling because if we don’t we might add to the deficit. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxsAy4R_jqo&w=640&h=360] Senator Heitkamp must have gone to the Kent Conrad school of decreasing the deficit by spending more. As for Heitkamp’s
