Interesting Governor Race Polling

A South Dacola Foot Soldier sent me this today;

I just got a call from a polling firm based out of N Sioux City SD (based on my caller ID).  It asked if I would support Noem or one of the following Dem opponents, either Sutton, Huether, or Seiler.

I had heard about a week ago that there was going to be polling out there in an effort to push Sutton into the race. But what I find interesting is they would include someone who I thought was now a registered Indy (MMM) and someone who lost to Rumblestrips. While they were at it, why didn’t they also mention Michelle Erpenbach 🙁

Noem’s push for Ravnsborg’s resignation is likely about Jackley

While many people may think Noem’s push is about Rumblestrips it’s really about Jackboots;

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota legislative leaders are distributing a petition to lawmakers asking them to support a special session to consider impeaching Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg for a car crash last year that killed a pedestrian.

While some would argue it is honorable for Noem to ask for Jason’s resignation, it is really about putting in her own fake incumbent appointee way ahead the 2022 election. It’s no secret that Noem first off wants a puppet in the AG’s office, since she already controls the courts in South Dakota. But she also wants someone who will put up a challenge towards Marty, who I would assume isn’t her BFF.

Noem may also know a lot more about some of the rumors swirling around about Jackboots and some of the stuff he did while directing the DCI . . . GearUp . . . cough, cough . . .EB-5 . . . cough, cough. There is also strange some rumors about his divorce proceedings. In some ways Noem may be trying to protect Jackley, and more likely the state if some of these embarrassing details come out during a campaign.

All that aside, make no mistake, Noem probably dislikes Jackboots more than Rumblestrips and she will do anything to make sure NEITHER is elected.

AG Rumblestrips resigns post to run the Wild Bill Driving School

Who says there isn’t a silver lining to every story?

While the pressure was put on by law enforcement officials, the governor and the legislature for Lil’ Janks Rumblestrips to resign as Attorney General it seems he decided to leave because of a great opportunity.

“Well, yeah, you know, yeah.” said Rumblestrips, “Yeah, they were considering me after I managed to only get a $500 fine after plowing over a man in a ditch after I was reading right-winger conspiracy theory websites on my phone. But what really convinced them was my $178 speeding ticket for going over 22 MPH a couple of days before my hearing.”

Board President of the driving school, Narc Podias, said, “It is one thing to deny you see a person go through your windshield, but to be speeding 20 miles over the speed limit just days from your hearing, that takes some serious balls, lack of brain cells or both!”

He of course has a different version of the story, “I’ll tell you what I told the officer, I didn’t see the speedometer or the speed limit sign, or the road for that matter, but was able to read some great tweets from Josh Hawley on my phone.”

Narc continues, “What makes him such a great candidate is as a high ranking Republican official in our state and the previous top law enforcement official, he is perfectly suited for teaching students how to drive like Bill drove, and how to bullsh!t your way out of it.”

Some of the courses include;

• I thought it was a deer (that’s what she said)

• Stop Signs? We don’t need no Stinkin’ Stop Signs

• Blame the Diet Coke

• It’s okay to speed as long as you pay your fines

• Only agree to a breathalizer 15 hours after the incident

• How to borrow a Sheriff’s car (when yours is totaled)

• How to take the ‘R’ out of Murder

• Play dumb

While Rumblestrips likely won’t be missed by our Governor and others in law enforcement, he will be a welcome addition to the Wild Bill Janklow Driving School team.

UPDATE: Hayes on Ravnsborg

UPDATE: What I have been saying, improperly charged;

Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg should’ve been charged with manslaughter instead of misdemeanors  for his role in a vehicle crash that killed someone, according to South Dakota’s top public official.

Department of Public Safety Secretary Craig Price in a letter sent to leadership in the South Dakota House of Representatives said the first-term attorney general should not have avoided more serious charges after he struck and killed a Hyde County man last year.

“In my opinion as a 24-year law enforcement officer, and in the opinion of the highly trained highway patrol officers involved in this investigation, Mr. Ravnsborg should have been charged with 2nd Degree Manslaughter,” Price said in the letter sent along with investigation materials compiled in the aftermath of the Sept. 12, 2020 crash.

I actually believe the prosecutors should also resign for the gross mismanagement of this trial and the plea deal. Mr. Driving Down the Hill with my Recyclables should be in jail.

This is interesting, FF 8:40.

I still think he was improperly charged. The investigators clearly proved he was likely looking at his phone when he went off the road and hit Boever. For his lawyer to argue that he didn’t get special treatment is hogwash. When you have a former law school classmate as the prosecutor, you have to scratch your head a bit. It is obvious he was distracted. It was obvious that distraction was a phone. He should have been charged differently, and I do think he got the Janklow treatment.

Ultimately though, his political career is toast and if he had any sense left he would resign and get TFO of South Dakota.

Even if AG Ravnsborg hit a tree in the road, he is still guilty of a crime

So here comes the Hail Mary from his defense team;

In the paperwork that was filed on July 9. Ravnsborg’s attorneys say that Boever had told friends that his preferred method of suicide would be to “throw himself in front of a car”.

Even if any or all of this is true and provable in a court of law, it doesn’t change the fact that whether Jason hit a tree in the middle of the road or Boever, Jason was web surfing while driving which is against the law, and not to be cold, but Jason hit ‘something’ in the road while he was violating the law, and that is what matters here. He should have seen the obstruction and at least tried to avoid it, but he couldn’t because he was distracted. Investigators have pointed this out.

Not only is Jason not qualified to operate a motor vehicle, he can’t even come up with a solid opinion without retracting it as he did today with Tribal Medical Marijuana cards. Any AG, or lawyer should know, you shouldn’t say anything until you absolutely certain. I am still baffled how he got elected.

Here’s how you can prevent Attorney General Jason Rumblestrips from getting a military promotion

Jason decided to spike the football a little early and tell everyone he was up for a promotion to Colonel in the Army Reserves, the problem is he hasn’t gotten that promotion yet.

But here is the kicker, you can voice your opinion on the matter and let the Department of Justice know that he is not worthy;


No form needed: 

  • Your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
  • The name and title of the individual you believe engaged in misconduct.
  • The details of the allegation including court case name and jurisdiction, if available.
  • Copies of any documents that support your allegation.
  • Any other information relevant to your complaint.

While I am willing to let Jason have his day in court because I believe in justice, I also think that as a guy who double dips from the taxpayer trough, this case needs to be settled in full before he receives his promotion hearing.

Here are a few videos a South DaCola foot soldier sent me;

Spineless South Dakota Legislature will NEVER impeach AG Jason Ravnsborg

I made a risky bet with a friend a few weeks ago, loser has to take the other one out for a night of mayhem in Downtown Sioux Falls. He actually reduced the bet to ‘a couple of drinks’ but not because he thought he would lose.

A couple of days after Noem asked Jason Rumblestrips to resign and the legislature was moving forward with impeachment I bet a Republican friend (I have a few) that it would never happen (resignation or impeachment). I know, I haven’t quite won yet, but the odds are in my favor.

The legislature wants to wait until the trial is done (whatever) and Jason will never resign while this is making it through the court process. In fact it could be 4-12 months before this even sees the inside of a courtroom. His attorney has already said he needs 60 days of discovery and may extend it after that.  I get the itching feeling that Jason, his attorney and the state legislature are just going to run out the clock, or try to. Most people will probably even forget about it in a year, or at least they are hoping.

While I agree with Noem that he should resign, why would he? It’s just misdemeanors at this point and he still has to have his day in court. Why not just hide in your office, milk the clock, and suck on the taxpayer’s teat as long as possible. Besides, even if he finishes his term, which I think he will, he will never be re-elected or even elected to dog catcher ever again. His political career starts and ends with this term. Yeah, it’s pretty disgraceful to not resign, but expected from another gutless South Dakota Republican office holder in Pierre.

Lie, Deny, Deny, Deny. Kristi does it all day long, like her famous one that the family was destitute after her father died because of a $169K estate tax bill they had to pay failing to mention the millions the family received in insurance and farm subsidies (Federal taxpayer funded welfare).

We all know the real reason Kristi is salivating over a JR resignation is because she wants to appoint a Trumper to push her agenda of dismantling abortion and Mary Jane in the state, and probably a whole host of other crap. My advice, sadly to AG Rumblestrips is to ‘Stay Golden Pony Boy’.

As for the legislature, they are even more spineless than Kristi or Jason. They make a bunch of noise about how they are going to impeach him, then once they realize they are breaking the Reagan Rule of destroying your own they chickensh!t out.

I knew they would. BACH! BACH!

While their argument of waiting for his day in court may seem honorable, it’s just a lame excuse. He has already been charged, and the preoccupation alone disqualifies him from performing his job duties. Heck, he can’t even tell us what the state has spent on trying to kill Rec Jane. His own resignation or impeachment would prove he has integrity, even if he is found not guilty – of course the evidence says otherwise. Most common folk in this same scenario would have already admitted that they may have screwed up, but these same folks are also NOT elected officials such as the top law enforcement agent for the state. I sometimes wonder if he knows that. I would ask him to google it, but he would probably do it while driving.

In the real world, most of us probably would have been arrested that night and a blood drawn done. We also probably would have been charged with reckless driving. It is pretty obvious that Jason has gotten mountains of preferential treatment in this whole deal, even when he was too stupid to have a lawyer with him while answering investigator questions, heck I wouldn’t even agreed to a sit down interview, but this is the same guy who doesn’t even have a passcode on his smart phone (hand on head right now). This F’up alone should disqualify him to be AG or even having a law license.

Sadly, no matter how this turns out, a majority of South Dakota voters will continue to elect these same Republican clowns.

Blame it on the Diet Coke
