    FARGO – Scott Hennen, a conservative talk-show host and radio station manager, has signed an agreement to buy back 1100 AM The Flag, the Fargo radio station he founded in 2008 before his investors fired him in 2010.

Hennen told The Forum he will announce the move, which requires approval from the Federal Communications Commission, today on-air during Chris Berg’s “We the People” show at 8 a.m. on 1100 AM.

However, they were not raising old glory. Instead they were hoisting the very symbol of the opposition: a rainbow flag, with the approval of city mayor Matthew Ryan. Breaking with flag etiquette Those in...

    THE USA - LOVE IT OR HEAD SOUTH Michael Reagan, Friday, April 7, 2006 There's a constant drone about the "Nation of Immigrants" America has always proudly claimed to be, but now it's being used as a slogan for those who believe we should accept absolutely anybody - even if they have absolutely no legal right to be here.

The illegals that come here for a job or...

    An open letter to my critics: Let me please take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback and to clarify a few points that seem to be at issue. Thank you to those who have sent messages of support, and to those of you whose criticisms are based in argument and reasoning, rathern than in name calling and death threats. Thank you to those of you who noticed that I took care in my pledge not to identify with terrorists, suicide bombers, or Islamic regimes, but with the ordinary people around the world, including those here in the United...
