Check out Kevin’s chat with Julianne:
What Ortman Could Have Been
Nearly two weeks ago former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged Minnesota GOP delegates to nominate Julianne Ortman to be their candidate U.S. Senate seat. The delegates failed to do that, and Ortman vowed to stay out of the race. She has thrown her support to the candidate the delegates ultimately chose.
Ortman discussed her candidacy in an interview with Kevin Scholla host of Mama Grizzly Radio prior to the May 30 delegate vote. Scholla said that she is a terrific candidate and hopes that Ortman will change her mind and re-enter the race. Scholla broadcast the interview as a tribute to what Ortman could have been.
Ortman said she was honored and grateful to receive Gov. Palin’s endorsement and to meet her personally. She has admired Gov. Palin for a long time. Ortman said Gov. Palin is a role model of a strong woman who speaks her thoughtful views.
Al Franken the incumbent Senator she is running against has been absent except for pushing the Obama agenda, Ortman said. The 12-year state senator has a “turn-around blueprint,” which she says is an agenda Republicans can agree on. “The Republican Party is not the party of ‘no’ it is the party of solutions,” Ortman said.
Ortman was the chair of the Minnesota Tax Committee. She was the first woman ever and the first Republican in 40 years leading the effort to balance a $5 billion state deficit without raising $1 in taxes. Ortman could have been balancing budgets at the federal level.
The mother of four who has been married 25 years said raising a family is a great qualifier for being a Senator. One of her children is serving in the army.
She said the VA scandal is a product of unaccountable power and layers upon layers of bureaucracy. Her turn-around plan provides specific steps on how Congress can re-establish control over these regulatory agencies.
Congress is adding $2 trillion to the national debt per year. Since the shutdown, every American has accrued a $7,000 share in that debt, she said.
Al Franken is the Chairman of the Privacy Sub-Committee in the US Senate and has a direct hand in the NSA spying scandal. He signed a letter with Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) calling for an IRS investigation into the 501 (c) 4s, and thus has a hand in the IRS scandal as well, she said. She said Franken has violated our First and Fourth Amendment rights.
Ortman is an outspoken proponent of legal immigration but is against doing anything to give illegals citizenship. She believes our borders must be secured. She said Obama has been signing executive orders that contravene immigration laws that are on the books.
Scholla queried her Minnesota’s strange history of electing politicians like Al Franken and Jesse Ventura. She attributed it to people seeking an independent thinker from outside the establishment. Ortman could have been the independent common-sense thinker Minnesotans need.
Strap In With the Colonel – Bergdahl Exchange Dangerous Foreign Policy
Obama trading Bergdahl for five Taliban commanders is dangerous foreign policy. The administration won’t tell us if any money changed hands in connection with this exchange.

Steel Resolve: Duty, Honor, Country
Duty, Honor, Country – 70 years ago, the soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy embodied these virtues. In the era of the selfie, where students are not even learning about World War II, these virtues are being rapidly lost. Gen. Eisenhower took full responsibility for D Day if it were to fail. Franklin Delano Roosevelt led the nation in prayer as D Day unfolded.
