Recently the state’s political circles have been buzzing about state Rep. Bill Oliver, a Republican from New Town, supposedly moving to Thief River Falls in Minnesota where he’s managing an O’Reilly Auto Parts Store. This sort of thing has been controversial in recent years. Current House Minority Leader Corey Mock, a Democrat, moved out of his...

North Dakota Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak explains a point at a commission meeting Monday, Aug. 14, 2017. Bismarck Tribune

Dear Julie, I think you’re a great public servant. I’m glad you’re on the Public Service Commission. It pleased me when it was reported that you might be interested in seeking a seat in Congress at some point, including possibly challenging Senator Heidi Heitkamp this cycle. But we need to talk. Here in North Dakota...

Maybe Now President Obama Understands How the Pipeliners Felt?

Maybe it makes me a bad person, but I’m experiencing some schadenfreude when it comes to former President Barack Obama’s struggles to get his library built in Chicago. So far his efforts to build on the site of Chicago’s historic Jackson Park (home of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, an event probably more important than...

I had to laugh when I noticed this last night: I don't think I've ever even tweeted at the @DakResCouncil before yet I'm blocked. Weird move for a public policy organization. #NDPol pic.twitter.com/Oa2HmAK7KI — Rob Port (@robport) January 18, 2018 I’m not sure why the Dakota Resource Council blocked me. For those of you not...

This Is the New York Times Admitting That They’re a Left Wing Newspaper

Today the New York Times decided to dedicate their letters-to-the-editor section entirely to Trump supporters. A group of people that, by my reading, range from enthusiastic supporters to those skeptical of the President’s behavior but none-the-less supportive of his agenda. But more interesting than the letters is the explanation from the Times for why they did this....

“She’s very beatable.” That’s what former NDGOP chairman Gary Emineth told me about Democratic Senate incumbent Heidi Heitkamp today. I broke the news yesterday that Emineth is considering a run for the Senate. Today he joined me on my radio show to talk about it (full audio of today’s show is below, subscribe to the...

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem’s office is in the process of defending North Dakota’s voter ID laws from a legal challenge. Those laws were enjoined by a federal judge shortly before the 2016 election, and the judge required that the state go back to allowing people without ID’s as long as they sign affidavits saying they...

John Andrist

On Friday last week I learned that John Andrist, a journalist and long-time lawmaker whose columns I’ve published here on SAB for some time, had a massive stroke. Today I learn from Republicans in District 2, where John served as a state Senator from 1993 to 2014, that my friend has passed away. Please read...

The state’s two-year budget cycle, the one lawmakers addressed in their 2017 session, began on July 1 of last year. So this report now represents six months of general fund...

In the Washington Post today Marc Thiessen has a column that, while condemning President Trump’s alleged “sh*thole” comments (and acknowledging there is a dispute over whether he said them), rightly points out that Democrats seem to have some really poor priorities. They apparently think scoring petty political points against the President is more important than meaningful...
