Governor Doug Burgum and the Land Board Need to Get in Control of Their Bureaucrats

Wed, 24 May 2017 15:14:01 +0000

A drilling rig is pictured near Lake Sakakawea near New Town, N.D., on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016. Some fear that uncertainty about who owns the minerals under the lake will deter oil development in the area. Amy Dalrymple/Forum News Service
There is a land grab being pursued by some North Dakota bureaucrats, an immoral sort of expropriation of valuable private mineral rights, that is now in defiance of not only decency but legislative intent. Our state’s elected leaders serving on the Board of Trust Lands need to step in and restore order. They need to...(image)

Hamid Shirvani had a tumultuous eleven-month tenure as the chancellor of the North Dakota University System which ended when the State Board of Higher Education opted to buy out his contract for north of $900,000. He’s now the President of Briar Cliff University, a Catholic institution in Sioux City, Iowa, and he’s been accused of...(image)

Accusations About Oil Regulators Destroying Records Are Political Baloney

Wed, 24 May 2017 13:44:01 +0000

Lynn Helms, state director of department of mineral resources, talks about North Dakota's oil production Monday, July 19, 2010, at his office in Bismarck.
A recent news article credulously reported the claims of a Bismarck attorney who is accusing the Department of Mineral Resources of deleting public records. That’s a serious accusation. Destroying or otherwise inhibiting the public’s access to public records is a crime, one possibly as serious as a felony depending on the circumstances. But as I...(image)

Democrats Already Running Campaign Commercials on Behalf of Heidi Heitkamp

Wed, 24 May 2017 13:11:54 +0000

(image) “You may not have noticed it…but the North Dakota Senate campaign for the 2018 cycle has already begun,” I wrote back on April 1. The Democrats keep proving me right, acknowledging that Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s re-election bid (which she hasn’t officially announced yet) is in trouble. That’s why the Democrats have set up an operation...(image)

John Andrist: Are Privacy Protections Good or Annoying?

Wed, 24 May 2017 12:56:08 +0000

We are very much obsessed these days with things like security, secrecy, and privacy. All three of them are getting more elusive. That may not be good, but perhaps it’s also not all bad. Ponder with me for a moment what our world would be like with no privacy for you and me and no...(image)

Video: Senator Heidi Heitkamp Rips #TheResistance, Calls It a “Waste of My Time”

Senator Heidi Heitkamp speaks during a 5/22/2017 meeting with the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce. via YouTube
Here at the dawn of what could be a very, very tough re-election campaign Senator Heidi Heitkamp has been cozying up to the North Dakota Chamber of Commerce. The impetus for said coziness is her support (seemingly at odds with her recent voting record) for regulatory reforms the business community wants. Because to win in...(image)

Matt Evans: An Attempt to Quantify the Criminal Justice Costs of Refugee Resettlement in Cass County

Tue, 23 May 2017 13:44:23 +0000

Nick Wagner / The Forum
Officially, police departments in North Dakota tell us that they have no way of knowing the refugee status of their inmates, and so, cannot report this data. This information gets transformed by the pro-refugee advocates as “there is no evidence that refugees commit more crime in our area!” Of course, they could just as easily...(image)

Bismarck City Administrator Asked That Police Officers Who Signed Recall Petition for Mayor Be Questioned

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:53:02 +0000

Bismarck Mayor Mike Seminary David Samson / The Forum
I think it’s safe to say that the City of Bismarck’s handling of a recall petition aimed at Mayor Mike Seminary has been something less than ideal. For one thing, the city had the Bureau of Criminal Investigation verify signatures of the recall petitions, which some have (rightly, I think) seen as somewhat intimidating. For...(image)

Audio: New NDGOP Youth Leader Says Trump Has Created “New Wave” of Excitement Among Young Voters

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:13:59 +0000

Last week the North Dakota Republican Party announced the creation of a new position, that of Chairman of the North Dakota Young Republicans. Named to fill that position is 18 year old Langdon student Dawson Schefter who has a laundry list of accomplishments not the least of which is owning his own sign business for...(image)

This Is How You Inspire a Lack of Respect for Authority

Mon, 22 May 2017 14:03:09 +0000

Sign outside of Minot High School's Magic City Campus.
A group of Minot High School students are facing criminal charges for an end-of-the-school-year prank. Three boys, ages 17-18, have been charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor crime, after throwing about four water balloons in the school lunch room. From the Minot Daily News: Assistant superintendent Kim Slotsve refused on Friday afternoon to comment on...(image)
