Earlier this year I broke a story about a 2016 staff survey which accused North Dakota University System Chancellor Mark Hagerott of using inappropriate language as well as engaging in gender bias and inappropriate behavior. The response from the university system was to order a new survey, the results of which my colleague Andrew Haffner...(image)

If you were to guess which state earned the highest Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per resident, would you guess that the winner – by a long shot – wasn’t a state at all? Washington, D.C. rakes in more than $160,000 per person, more than doubling runner up Massachusetts and far eclipsing North Dakota’s own $62,837 earnings...(image)

According to a report in the Tioga Tribune, oil field consultant and State Board of Higher Education member Kathy Neset will not be running for the U.S. Senate this cycle.

My Sunday print column was about the #MeToo movement. I argue that, while it’s a positive thing that victims are now speaking out, we must be careful to ensure that innocent people are protected from false accusations. I got a lot of criticism, which didn’t surprise me, and a lot of it made broad generalizations...(image)

Over the weekend the New York Post ran an unfortunate profile of #NoDAPL activist Sophia Wilanksy. You’ll remember her as the woman who got her arm maimed during a violent conflict the anti-pipeline protesters instigated with law enforcement at the Backwater Bridge. It’s all part of an on-going effort by left wing propagandists to rewrite...(image)

We’re entering the holiday shopping season, and as we do we’re going to hear a lot about shopping local. Last week I wrote a print column decrying the “buy local” slogan. “The best sort of economy we can have is one guided by decisions made by people free to pursue the choices they feel are...(image)

In the wake of accusations against Senator Al Frank (D-Minnesota) by model and broadcaster Leeann Tweeden, in which she claims that he forced a kiss on her and groped her breasts, fellow Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp announced that she’d be donating to charity Franken’s contributions to her campaign: Senator Franken’s conduct was inappropriate and unacceptable...(image)

An email sent out last week by the University of North Dakota’s School of Graduate Studies urges students to oppose the Republican-backed tax reform which is set to be voted on by the House of Representatives today.

If you needed more evidence for the idea that some factions of the environmental movement are convinced that tactics like violence and vandalism are justified by their cause, consider this press release from the Lakota People’s Law Project. It’s announcing the impending delivery of what they allege are more than 50,000 petition signatures asking a...(image)

Governor Doug Burgum, because of his background in the tech industry, is seen as probably the most internet-savvy political leader in North Dakota. But he pulled a bit of a boner on Twitter recently. He sent out this tweet touting the Main Street Initiative, an ill-defined platform of policies he campaigned on back in 2016...(image)
