Is Corey Lewandowski pulling Noem’s puppet strings?

As I started digging around on Noem’s recent bullying efforts with the Mayor and now the Tribes, one name came up quite a bit, Corey Lewandowski.

You may or may not know that Corey was Trump’s campaign manager for president the last time around. He has also consulted the president during his presidency.

As several blogs have reported, their is a rumor swirling around that if Trump gets re-elected, he is going to tap Noem for Secretary of Agriculture. This supposed secret deal was concocted by Corey, and the rumor is he is pulling the puppet strings with how Noem has been reacting to the pandemic. Including pushing back on stay-at-home orders, telling our mayor what to do (and getting him to apologize publicly and say he was wrong and she was right). I’m also sure the sudden change in getting tough on the tribes has more to do with Trump and Lewandowski than it does with Noem. A freaking paralegal could tell you that the state has NO jurisdiction over the reservations.

See, Noem wants that cabinet position so badly, she will do anything, including handing Rhoden over to us as governor. Pierre will become one big Rodeo Cocktail Party . . . wait . . . it already is.

I wish our media would do some more digging around on this. I can tell you the TV studio in her basement wasn’t put there to better inform South Dakotans. Noem wants to go back to DC so bad she can taste it, and she’ll trample anyone to get there, with the help of Corey, of course.

I can’t wait for the 2026 Dusty versus Kristi Republican US Senate primary. It’s going to be nasty. Dusty had better not have any #MeToo in his background either; but he did say on primary election night 2018, that he married the best looking woman who would have anything to do with him. What can I say to that? 😉

( and Woodstock adds: “Dusty had better start buying some trucker hats for that one, but he needs to be careful that the plastic prong-in-a-hole adjusters in back don’t protrude out too much, a problem for a lot of teenagers”… “And what if Rock and Roll jeans are then no longer in fashion for Kristi?”… )

OMG it’s nearly time for another republican rodeo. To get elected you need a circle worn in the back pocket of your Wranglers. Noem is fighting Indians. Pierre will become famous as another Little Big Horn. Reservations are sovereign. More sovereign than Sioux Falls because of Home Rule Charter. It’s time to reopen saloons for elections. Virus will kill only democrats who can’t Line Dance.

Divining an alternate universe where Randy Scott is still cruising the Moody County back roads while a Hellbent Bill Janklow is lurking at every intersection in South Dakota’s ideological landscape is easier than imagining the decriminalization of Citibank’s prospectus.

Current Republican Governor Kristi Noem is a graduate of the Koch Brothers’ American Legislative Exchange Council or ALEC, an anti-think tank think tank that teaches how wedge issues raise campaign dollars for the extreme white wing of the Republican Party. Republican former Governor now US Senator Reich Mike Rounds, one of the least effective members of Congress, was elected with cash from ALEC-backed National Federation of Independent Business. South Dakota’s GOP legislators and candidates enjoy millions in lobbyist benefits from ALEC.

I believe. There is no way she would get to speak to Kushner directly. It would have to be done thru Corey or some other court schmuck.
