Two Websites - Opposites

Post  nightlight88 on Wed Mar 30, 2016 7:51 am

For those who may be interested in local politics and who may not know about these sites, here are two links of opposing views.

Dakota War College is a right leaning site, by Pat Powers of Brookings. He does a good job of keeping track of who's who in state politics as well as our three national politicians.

http://dakotawarcollege.com/

Dakota Free Press is a left wing site, ran by Cory Heidelburger, of Madville Times fame. He has since moved to Aberdeen and is running for state office.

I visit and post on (under a different name) Dakota Free Press all the time. I like singing off key conservative tunes in the liberal choir.

Don't go to Dakota War College much but I have posted there on occasion.

My thoughts on these two sites are:

The Dakota War College often called DWC and renamed by conservatives as the Dakota War on Conservatives website is right leaning, but completely a RINO site.  They are all about party and nothing about principles let alone conservative principles.  They do an excellent job of keeping tabs on WHO is running for what office and doing what in politics.  However, they are 100% biased toward the "establishment" RINO side of every issue or fight.  They are also notorious for deleting comments if they don't agree with them.

The guy that runs the Dakota Free Press is running for State Senate or State House (I forget which) up in Brown County.  He is a flaming far left extremist that makes Bernie Sanders and Jackoff Jones appear to be left leaning moderates.  The only good thing you can say about him is that he is consistent and more truthful than Jackoff Jones.  I do agree with him on one issue and that is crony capitalism or as he likes to often call it corporate welfare.

Here is a very good example of the pushback by SD conservatives on the RINO rants coming out of the Dakota War College.

The DWC site is no friend to conservatives. True conservatives need to be aware if they enter the DWC site and don't be fooled.

That is a good choice.  Bob Ellis and the American Clarion is a SOLID conservative voice.  They are at times mortal combatants with the Dakota War College due to its very RINO leanings.   Bob Ellis is a very good person and I am almost in total agreement with him when it comes to conservative values and principles.  However, I do disagree with him on a couple of things.

Where our thinking departs is mostly over the HOW part of the discussion.  He is the "swing for the fences" type a guy and is looking for an all or nothing on every issue.  While I would love to have that, I am much more amenable to a small step at a time approach.  For him it is a full step north or forget it.  I am (reluctantly) willing to accept a half step northeast rather than end up with a step BACKWARD.

The other thing we disagree on is around strategy.  My personal belief is "Pick a battle small enough that you can WIN, but big enough to make a difference".  Bob on the other hand wants to take on every battle, even those you have ZERO chance of winning.  My belief is that the conservative cause lacks the critical mass to fight every battle and therefore we end up wasting time, money and energy when we get into battles we have ZERO chance of winning.

Bottom-line, he is a GREAT guy, a TRUE conservative and a conservative willing to take a stand.

Here is another good website if you have any interest in following the political environment up in North Dakota.  

https://www.sayanythingblog.com/

It is a GOOD conservative site and the guy who runs it, Bob Port, is a very solid conservative although not nearly as passionate as Bob Ellis.  Bob Port runs a good website that has some very good information.  He does have some liberal loons who hangout there and leave stupid ass comments, but what is that not going to happen in this country anymore?

The American Clarion has some very interesting information in this article:

http://www.americanclarion.com/2016/04/25/2016-american-clarion-sd-legislative-scorecard-44472/


Actual scorecards can be found at:

http://www.americanclarion.com/2016_SD_House_Scorecard_American_Clarion.htm

http://www.americanclarion.com/2016_SD_Senate_Scorecard_American_Clarion.htm


As expected, there are way too many R's legislating like demonrats.  Be sure to let your neighbors know about them.

I knew some of the blatant RINOs before this scoresheet.

If you are attempting to be cogent, you have been weighed and come up lacking.

She is still trying to string together three coherent grammatically correct sentences.  I would like to give her credit for improving, but then that would hurt my credibility.  Brain dead is brain dead - time to pull the plug on this one also.  These immoral disgusting cretins do not appear to be salvageable.

Not really LOCAL, but this seems as good as place as any- following the American Clarion's SD Legislative Scorecard.

The Club for Growth has just released their latest US Congressional scorecard.  The announcement letter is here:

And you can find the actual scorecard here:

LOL Thune = 68% for 2015.  Rounds kicks off with a 58% rating.  Noem - 69%.  They might as well step-aside and let some Democrats do some real work for the people.

I wonder what kind of score Stephanie Herseth had ?

I personally know the democrat running against Thune...he is as unhinged as you can get. I can't wait for the heavy campaigning to begin.
