– Team Doug

News Summary …

The Grand Forks Herald reports that Doug was critical of Barack Obama’s federal government for changing the rules of Dakota Access after the outcome was decided.  “Doug Burgum, the Republican candidate for North Dakota governor, criticized last week’s decision from three federal agencies to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Soon after a federal judge ruled against the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s request for an injunction against the oil pipeline Friday, the agencies released a statement indicating construction would not be allowed on U.S. Army Corps of Engineering land bordering or under Lake Oahe until it can determine whether it will need to reconsider its previous decisions about that site. ‘It’s like you win the game, and then you find out five minutes after the game is over that you didn’t win the game because we’re actually thinking about changing the rules of the game that you decided to play,’ Burgum said in an interview with the Herald Wednesday afternoon. ‘That’s a much broader problem for our entire economy.’ … ‘We can and should continue to try to advance our abilities to listen to each other,’ Burgum said. ‘The judge did rule that the pipeline company did everything that they were required.’”

Meanwhile, Say Anything Blog reports Doug had some insightful information regarding the actions that came from Barack Obama’s Administration. “Fargo businessman Doug Burgum – makes some insightful comments about the absurdity of President Obama’s actions. … If people like President Obama want to block pipelines, and block oil development, then they should work to change policies so that those things are illegal. That’s how democracy is supposed to work.”
