Pierre Curiam: Kristi Noem cheats on her husband; John Thune cheats on South Dakota

Shantel Krebs is the source for this 2010 post about Kristi Noem's extramarital love life. Krebs and this reporter had a twenty minute phone conversation the day before the post went up. In a phone interview Steve Cutler would not go on the record about being a witness to intimacy between Noem and Jim Meidinger.

It's common knowledge that Krebs, Joni Cutler and other South Dakota legislators loathe Noem.

Shantel was giddy about spilling her guts during our phone conversation and provided me with eyewitnesses to the affair that nobody wanted to go on the record about. What really stuck in Krebs' craw was that KELO teevee buried the story replete with first person accounts of public intimate contact between Noem and her paramour.

Krebs supported Chris Nelson, hated Noem and gleefully gave me names of people to call who also hated Noem which I did.

Until Shantel admits her phone conversation with me and/or the tipster comes forward this is all on me and from the viral traffic at interested party about this, my credibility is obviously more feared than doubted.

Noem just got back from a taxpayer-funded junket to Egypt: the goddess Isis only knows with whom she slept there.

Shantel Krebs has reportedly denied speaking to this reporter but lying is par for the earth hater political course.

When asked on a 100 Eyes broadcast Jonathan Ellis said Kristi Noem might cite her achievements as passing human trafficking legislation [(not that it's done any good in South Dakota) ed.] and doing some stuff on the farm bill.

Damning with faint praise in my view as Noem's party marches ever closer to the Hamiltonian Empire Thomas Jefferson warned us about.

I had to laugh like hell.
Rep. Kristi Noem, R-South Dakota, said in an interview Friday that as Republican leadership considers its successor options for soon-to-retire Speaker John Boehner, she doesn't want to be on the list. "I think the reluctance of people to do it is certainly understandable,” Noem said. [Dana Ferguson]
Nancy Pelosi would be more than happy to take the job.
“Normally he was paid by a person, or by $100 bills left in an envelope for him near the front gate. One time he was not paid in person or by envelope, and went looking for someone who could pay him. He unexpectedly stumbled upon a room full of pregnant girls, before being intercepted, paid, and escorted from the compound.” [Seth Tupper]
Kristi has been grumping about her caucus publicly for quite a while: think she's seen her fifteen minutes of stardom after two terms of Noemnothingness?

Democrats=safe sex. Republicans=cheap sex.

John Thune is a dangerous criminal.

South Dakota is a sanctuary state for white collar crime, though. Thune's family came from Europe and Canada just two generations ago. His mean-spirited attack on sanctuary cities comes as the Center for Immigration Studies exposes his party's EB-5 corruption.
These laws are a false fix for a concocted problem. They are based on the lie, now infecting the Republican presidential campaign, that all unauthorized immigrants are dangerous criminals who must be subdued by extraordinary means. The answer to an immigrant population in the shadows is — as it has been throughout our history — integration and welcome instead of scapegoating and oppression. And leaving local law enforcement free to focus on catching criminals and protecting public safety. [editorial, New York Times]
While South Dakota's Republican congressional delegation give lip service to reversing the effects of the American Holocaust on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation President Barack Obama is actually doing something about it.
The White House announced today President Obama will host the 2015 White House Tribal Nations Conference at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center 1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004 on Wednesday, November 4th and Thursday, November 5th. The conference will provide leaders from the 568 federally recognized tribes the opportunity to interact directly with the President and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs, which is led by Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. This will be the seventh White House Tribal Nations Conference for the Obama administration, and continues to build upon the President’s commitment to strengthen the government-to-government relationship with Indian Country and to improve the lives of Native Americans.

Senator John Thune and Representative Kristi Noem voted against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act but now want to tap into funds provided in the Act to bring more cops to reservations.
To jumpstart a dialogue, the White House Tribal Nations Conference was created in 2009 and has been held each year since. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., said the move to consult with tribes is a big step. An emotional private encounter hearing the stories of tribal youth had an impact on Obama. Late last year, he announced several initiatives, including a report on challenges facing tribal youth, a project to support tribal schools and a national network to cultivate Native American leaders.

Rosebud is recruiting teachers from outside the United States because South Dakota is in the midst of an education crisis.
While Todd County and other state-funded schools can look to Pierre for a possible solution to low teacher salaries, St. Francis depends on funding from the U.S. Bureau of Indian Education. [Sioux Falls Argus Leader]
