Plain Talk: Senator Cramer Says Trump Was First to Call Border Situation a “Humanitarian Crisis”

He says Biden appeals to a larger majority of moderate Americans, a faction of voters obscured by some of the extremism

Plain Talk: Senator Cramer Says of Border Deal, “I Like It Ok. I Certainly Don’t Love It.”

On this episode of Plain Talk, Senator Kevin Cramer takes listener questions (he’s on every week, email your questions any time to rob@sayanythingblog.com).

Trump to Sign Funding Ban for Universities Hosting Chinese Institute Once Touted at North Dakota Universities

Back in 2010 the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education approved requests from Dickinson State University and North Dakota State to create Confucius Institutes on their campuses. In 2012 the folks at DSU, mired in a horrendous diploma mill scandal, announced they were ending the program. It doesn’t seem as though a similar program

Trump Surrogate Ben Carson To Speak At NDGOP Convention

Yesterday Mike Nowatzki had an article suggesting that there will be two high-profile keynote speakers at the North Dakota Republican Party’s state convention next month. Today I can report that one of those speakers will be former national candidate Ben Carson. Carson dropped out of the national GOP’s presidential nomination race earlier this month and has
