Shocker: Partisan North Dakota US Attorney Follows Obama Narrative On Sequester

Shocker: Partisan North Dakota US Attorney Follows Obama Narrative On Sequester

North Dakota US Attorney Tim Purdon is a political operative appointed to a position that is supposed to be non-political. Purdon was appointed as North Dakota’s top federal cop straight from the Democrat National Committee by President Obama. One of his first actions as US Attorney for North Dakota was an attempt at a thoroughly

"If you electrocute an eagle, that is bad, but if you chop it to pieces, that is OK"

Wind farms killing endangered condors in California, and eagles in Wyoming, is ok because they’re green energy according to the Obama administration. But if those same birds were killed at a coal mine or an oil site? Well that’s different: CONVERSE COUNTY, Wyo. — Wind farms in this corner of Wyoming have killed more than

Federal Wildlife Officials Give Their Blessing To Killing Endangered Birds

Here in North Dakota a half-dozen oil companies faced criminal prosecution under the Migratory Birds Treaty Act by Obama-appointed US Attorney Tim Purdon over about a dozen dead ducks – common ducks, not at all endangered – found at oil sites during a months-long investigation. Thankfully, those prosecutions were laughed out of federal court, but

Shocker: Renewal Of Wind Subsidies Sparks Plans For 41% Expansion In North Dakota

Not so long ago it seemed Big Wind was on the verge of collapse what with the federal subsidies the industry relies on about to be pulled. But then those subsidies were renewed, and now there are plans for a 41% expansion of wind power capacity in North Dakota: The extension of a key federal

Thanks Fracking: America Leading The World In Carbon Emission Reductions

From the Wall Street Journal (via Nevada Watchdog): U.S. carbon-dioxide emissions have fallen dramatically in recent years, in large part because the country is making more electricity with natural gas instead of coal. Energy-related emissions of carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas that is widely believed to contribute to global warming, have fallen 12% between 2005

North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple

This Year's Roughrider Award Ceremony Might Be A Little Awkward

In the past Governor Jack Dalrymple, and his predecessor Governor John Hoeven, have been criticized for picking too many Republicans for the state’s Roughrider Award. Several of the most recent recipients have, it’s true, been big contributors to Republican politics, though I’m not sure that should necessarily diminish the accomplishments that earned them the award.

Hoeven A Definite No On Gun Control Bill, Heitkamp Still A Maybe UPDATE: Heitkamp Says No

The Senate plans on voting on gun control today, and Democrats don’t yet have their votes. Senator Heidi Heitkamp still isn’t clear on how she’ll vote. Senator John Hoeven, for his part, says that despite voting to end the filibuster of the bill he’s a definite “no” vote. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, a Democrat, didn’t say

North Dakota Attorney General Asks For $400,000 To Defend Pro-Life Bills In Next Two Years

The pro-abortion activists concern-trolling the cost of defending North Dakota’s new pro-life bills got some wind taken out of their sails last week when Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem announced that he’s asking for a relatively small $400,000 appropriation to defend the bills in the coming biennium. Many predicted that this legislature would have to appropriate

Petitions Filed To Refer North Dakota's New Pro-Life Laws To The Ballot

I’m actually a little surprised the pro-abortion activists are going this route. As Bismarck Tribune reporter Nick Smith posted on Twitter, petitions to refer the three pro-life bills already signed by Governor Jack Dalrymple to the ballot were filed with the Secretary of State today. Petitions to refer HB1305, HB1456 and SB2305, three abortion bills,

Heitkamp Punts On Abortion Question

From the way some in the North Dakota media are portraying the abortion debate in North Dakota you’d get the idea that the state was pretty evenly divided on the question. But that perception doesn’t seem to match reality. For one thing, every single one of the pro-life bills which passed in the legislature did
