Had a wonderful time in Williston, North Dakota, last night. Responsible resource development has led to a huge economic boom there. The chant “Drill, Baby, Drill” is understood and appreciated in North Dakota! They’re showing America how to live and preserve the American dream by rockin’ the Bakken, showing how domestic energy brings prosperity and can lead to America’s security. The city of Williston itself has tripled in size, and North Dakota oil production is up 445% since 2008. North Dakota now leads the nation in agriculture, oil, job creation, personal income growth and even “people’s overall well-being.” They got there by responsibly utilizing all the God-given resources put here for mankind’s use.
Special thanks to our friend Rob Port for keeping us updated over the years about North Dakota’s tremendous progress. Rob grew up in Alaska and was the little brother of my friend and basketball teammate, Katy Port. Back then “Robbie” was just a cute little kid coming with us on basketball trips, entertaining us with his toddler sense of humor. Now he’s a big shot blogger in North Dakota with his “Say Anything” blog being the state’s most popular political blog and one of the top conservative blogs in the nation!
The event in Williston was a fundraiser for Trinity Christian School. Got to meet some of the nicest salt of the earth people from the heartland. It was great to see David Barton (who also spoke at the event), as well as the musical entertainment provided by Ernie Haase and Signature Sound. Trinity Christian School is doing a wonderful job living the message in Proverbs 22:6, which instructs us to: “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
Thank you again to everyone who made last night’s event possible. North Dakota, keep up the good work! You’re leading by example with responsible energy development, balanced budgets and positive pro-life legislation.

Sarah Palin Speaks in Williston

Sarah Palin, who was a candidate for vice president when John McCain ran for president six years ago, addressed a sold-out auditorium at Williston State College this evening.
Palin was in Williston as a keynote speaker for the Trinity Christian School fall banquet.
Palin talked about oil production and the impacts it can have on christian education.
Early in her presentation she spoke of previous time spent in North Dakota including her favorites: a UND hockey game and the Northern Lights this far ‘south.’
(Sarah Palin, Former Governor of Alaska)”Driving to and from North Dakota to see our son, I remember early, early one morning, it was very dark outside, everybody’s asleep in the rig and I’m at the wheel and I am shocked to look up and see these spectacular Northern Lights in North Dakota. I had no idea.
Palin was the first woman and youngest governor of Alaska to run on a republican presidential ticket — and listed as one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.
