By defying law, DAPL protesters deeply hurt their case
Energy Transfer Partners has a dispute with the U.S. government. A big dispute. A $3.8 billion dispute, to be exact. And that’s a lot of money. If you had a billion dollars, and you spent a $1,000 a day, do you know how long it would take you to go broke? Two thousand years....

It’s not about emails
As the Dakota Access Pipeline protest simmers just below the boiling point, the silence of North Dakota state leaders suggests an abdication of responsibility that has played into the hands of the worst elements among protesters and their sympathizers. By adopting what is coming off...

Obamacare realities block path to reform
When Donald Trump takes office, he and Congress are likely to keep those aspects of Obamacare that work and revamp those that don't. That's Tim Huckle's message in the Herald's interview today. And we suspect the CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota is right. But there's...

Letter to the editor: Editorial ignores realities on the ground
The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead’s editorial that was published Nov. 21 in the Sun regarding the cancellation of the speech by a tribal leader to the legislative assembly is completely offbase and ignores the realities on the ground. We canceled the speech and offered to meet with tribal...

Archaic Electoral College still electing presidents
U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has introduced a resolution calling for replacement of the Electoral College with a direct popular vote. Since Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and lost in the Electoral College, the resolution looks more like sour grapes than serious reform....

Trump tosses 'em under bus
Donald Trump's session last week with the New York Times Editorial Board was startling. First, that he even agreed to meet with a newspaper that has been his nemesis for months suggests he would rather have the Times with him than against him. Second, his responses to questions revealed...

Letter to the editor: Liberals need to accept Hillary Clinton’s loss
It seems more than a tad inconsistent when I criticize Barack Hussein Obama I am called a racist. If a white guy attacks Obamacare, liberals immediately call us white racists. The “Hamilton” attendees boo, a black actor standing on stage attacks our Vice President-elect Mike...

Letter to the editor: If people want better choices for president, get involved
In reaction to this year’s election, here are my thoughts. First of all, the outcome of this election began with the primary process which most average people do not get involved in. The process was controlled by radical activists on the Republican side, and out-of-touch party...

City handles Alerus Center actions professionally
It's best not to know how laws or sausages are made. Or how firings are conducted, as the famous saying should also declare. The recent dismissals of the Alerus Center's top two executives have made this clear. But however unpleasant, the process is important for Grand Forks residents...

Letter to the editor: How about reporting all the news?
Regarding the column by Cokie and Steve Roberts in Saturday’s Sun: Why now, after eight years of no accountability for this administration, is the press going to do its job and report news and ask tough questions? I can find hundreds of times when they failed, but for the sake...

Trump should not pursue Clinton
History has been kind to President Gerald Ford’s pardon of President Richard Nixon, which happened only a month after Nixon resigned from the presidency. That was not true at the time — 1974. Nor was it true two years later, when the the pardon played a big role in Ford’s...

Relations between the state of North Dakota and its American Indian nations in the modern era have never been as strained as they are now. Tensions from the ongoing demonstrations against the Dakota Access Pipeline - a project backed by the state but vehemently opposed by the...

Letter to the editor: Protesters are anarchists, sore losers
I say congrats Donald Trump winning the election. It’s been awhile since Trump won to be president of this nation, and the protests continue to persist with all the violence and mayhem that goes with it. It’s disgraceful that the majority of protesters are acting in a criminal...
