    Supreme Court fight pushes Senate toward brink BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 09/26/20 01:02 PM EDT The burgeoning fight to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Supreme Court seat is pouring fuel onto already simmering tensions in the Senate and threatening to fundamentally reshape the institution. Senators in both parties acknowledge the level of dysfunction in a chamber where the bulk of their time is spent processing nominations amid failures to break stalemates on pressing national issues such as coronavirus relief and police reform. “I’m praying to God that the better angels start flying with my colleagues. That’s all I can tell...

    If you've watched Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show lately, you probably think the coronavirus outbreak is worse than ever and is never going away. Her message night after night has been: Everything must stay shut down. We are in grave danger. So you can get why she doesn't like South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem. For months Noem has taken a much different approach, one that is a bit sunnier and doesn't require massive shutdowns that have put way too many people out of business. She recently posted a lighthearted clip about how hunting is the perfect social distancing activity, which Maddow...

    The Department of Public Safety will release its investigation into the attorney general fatally hitting a pedestrian with his car on Saturday night. “We are adding an extra level of transparency and accountability that I think is necessary in this case,” Gov. Kristi Noem said at a Tuesday news conference. “It’s something we take very seriously," DPS Secretary Craig Price said about avoiding any appearance of conflict of interest related to the top law enforcement official in the state. Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg crashed at 10:30 p.m. on U.S. Highway 14, one mile west of Highmore, DPS said in a...

    In her interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson this week, Erica Kious was adamant that she did not "set up" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when the Democrat was caught on camera getting a hair blowout in her salon, ESalonSF, which has been shut down for months due to the coronavirus. Speaker Pelosi claimed innocence in a recent statement, insisting that the salon fooled her. She demanded an apology, but Kious said it's not coming. Pelosi's aide, Kious explained, had called a stylist and made the appointment and the appointment was already booked, so there is "no way" she could...

    The New York Times ran an article Wednesday about how voters in Wisconsin are responding to the riots by switching their support to Donald Trump. This is a very strange thing to see in the progressive Gray Lady. Anybody who follows the paper and its politics closely knows exactly what is happening here. It is a desperate plea to Democrats to change their tune on the violence sweeping across American cities.And Democrats seem to understand this as well. Joe Biden released a video Wednesday in which he provided his clearest condemnation of the riots, looting, arson, assault, and destruction...

    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) on Wednesday lauded first lady Melania Trump's keynote speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC), adding "no mother in this country" wants to raise children in Democratic-led cities. Noem told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Sandra Smith that the president's wife delivered a "powerful" speech showcasing "her mother's heart" Tuesday night, and exemplified how the president respects women. Following the first lady's speech, Trump walked up to her and kissed her on the cheek before the two walked inside the White House hand-in-hand.

    South Dakota is the first state to decline President Donald Trump's executive order to restart the coronavirus unemployment bonus at a rate of up to $400 per week, The Washington Post reported. Republican Gov. Kristi Noem, a rising star in the party, declined the bonus payments for those unemployed in her state because it never shut down during the global coronavirus pandemic. "My administration is very grateful for the additional flexibility that this effort would have provided, but South Dakota is in the fortunate position of not needing to accept it," Noem said. Trump's order diverted unused funds from federal...

    Trump denied Sunday a report he seriously proposed he be added to Mount Rushmore, but indicated he thought it was a “good idea.” “This is Fake News by the failing New York Times and bad ratings CNN,” Trump wrote on social media. “Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!” The New York Times reported on Sunday the White House reached out to South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem in 2018 about adding additional presidents to Mount Rushmore....

    As COVID-19 cases surpass five million in the U.S. - and deaths exceed 162K, according to Johns Hopkins University & Medicine - tens of thousands of motorcyclists rode into South Dakota for the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally - most of which were unmasked and not following social distancing guidelines. “No, we didn’t take any precautions,” Rally attendee Jim Busch told the New York Times, adding that he thinks the coronavirus pandemic, which he refers to as a “situation,” is “manufactured. “There’s ulterior motives behind this, so we’re not concerned.” The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is a 10-day event that is estimated...

    Thousands of bikers heading to South Dakota’s 10-day Sturgis Motorcycle Rally will not be allowed through Cheyenne River Sioux checkpoints, a spokesman for the Native American group said on Saturday. The decision to prevent access across tribal lands to the annual rally, which could attract as many as 250,000 bikers amid fears it could lead to a massive, regional coronavirus outbreak, comes as part of larger Covid-19 prevention policy. The policy has pitted seven tribes that make up the Great Sioux Nation against federal and state authorities, which both claim the checkpoints are illegal.

    South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem praised the people of her state for working with her administration to both keep the coronavirus largely at bay, while preserving the state's economy and employment levels. Noem told "The Ingraham Angle" that a dangerous way to potentially "lose the country" is for other state executives to "overstep" boundaries and restrict universal American freedoms in the name of virus mitigation. "I think what we are seeing there is encouraging leaders to make decisions where they will overstep their authorities and a time of crisis, and that's how we lose this country," she said.
