    The first day of fall may have just been on Monday, but winter is already well on its way to parts of the northern Rockies, where a potentially "historic" winter storm is setting up for this weekend. The National Weather Service's prediction center said an upper low-pressure system dropping into the Pacific Northwest late Friday is forecast to bring what's expected to become a "significant and possibly historic" early-season snowstorm across portions of the northern Rockies. "Snow, lots of it across the northern Rockies and the northern Plains, it's coming," Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean said on "Fox &...

    n a major win for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending all injunctions that had blocked the White House's ban on asylum for anyone trying to enter the U.S. by traveling through a third country, such as Mexico, without seeking protection there. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – long a liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration – handed the White House a partial victory in the case on Monday by ending the nationwide injunction. But the 9th Circuit kept the injunction alive within...

    A Missoula-based in-home health care company has been chosen to administer $500 million in spending by the state of Washington for overseeing providers of in-home personal care and respite. Consumer Direct Care Network was chosen last week by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services for the contract. “We deal in Medicaid-based home care, and how this works is essentially we are one of two awarded,” explained Ben Bledsoe, the president and CEO of Consumer Direct Care Network. “It’s a big deal for us. It puts us in a new category.” The company employs about 325 people in...

    SoClean, an international medical supply company, is opening its second North American location in Kalispell in October and eventually anticipates having a workforce of “upwards of 250 or more employees.” Operations in the new Kalispell facility will include “in-bound sales, customer service, information technology support, marketing, programming, different executive levels…and human resources,” according to SoClean Chief Executive Officer Bob Wilkins. “It’s the whole gamut of how you’d see a company run. “We’re coming here because both [Chief Information Officer] Keith Brown and I have experience with building companies here in the valley,” Wilkins said. The head of the Peterborough, New...

    MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana man charged with assaulting a 13-year-old boy who refused to remove his hat during the national anthem believed he was doing what President Donald Trump wanted him to do, his attorney said. Attorney Lance Jasper told the Missoulian he will seek a mental health evaluation for Curt Brockway, a U.S. Army veteran who became caught up in the heightened animosity and rhetoric gripping the nation, and convinced himself that he was following the president's orders. "His commander in chief is telling people that if they kneel, they should be fired, or if they burn...

    A Montana man has been charged with assault of a minor for allegedly slamming a 13-year-old boy to the ground for not removing his hat during the national anthem, according to reports. Charles James Brockway, 39, was arrested Saturday evening at the Mineral County Fair and Rodeo in Superior, a small town in northwestern Montana, the Missoulian reported. Taylor Hennick, a witness cited by the paper, said the national anthem had begun at the fairgrounds when she saw a boy, “lying on the ground.” “He was bleeding out of his ears, seizing on the ground, just not coherent,” Hennick said.

    MSN News ^ | August 1, 2019 | Albert Hunt, The Hill
    Joe Biden survived the second round of Democratic presidential debates, but it became more apparent that over half the 22-person field is irrelevant and should get out, the sooner the better. The former vice president was repeatedly under attack on health care, criminal justice, immigration and abortion. He stumbled sometimes, but overall was sharper than his mediocre performance in the first debate a month ago. This won't assuage fears of mainstream Democrats that the 76-year-old Biden may not be up to the challenge of a protracted primary fight and bitter battle against Donald Trump. Still he was sufficiently engaged to...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) sparred Tuesday night over her proposed “no first use” policy on nuclear weapons during the Democratic debate. In defending the proposed policy, Warren argued for diplomatic and economic solutions to conflict, saying “we should not be asking our military to take on jobs that do not have a military solution.” But Bullock opposed that proposal, saying, “I don’t want to turn around and say, ‘Well, Detroit has to be gone before we would ever use that.’” Warren is the lead sponsor of the Senate version of a bill that would...

    Self-help author Marianne Williamson was the most searched Democrat candidate during the second Democrat debate on Tuesday, according to Google Trends. Williamson beat out top candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Williamson was also the top-searched candidate in 49 of 50 states, excluding Montana, where its governor, Steve Bullock, ranked higher. Williamson captivated viewers with her meandering and unconventional responses and phrases such as “dark psychic force” and “emotional turbulence.” At the last debate, she won attention for saying her plan to defeat President Trump was to “harness love.” She won some of...

    MEDFORD, Ore. (KATU) — Authorities found a deceased toddler on Sunday, and authorities believe it is the son of the Oregon couple involved in an apparent murder-suicide in Montana. The child’s body was found deceased in a remote part of Montana. While the medical examiner hasn’t confirmed the identity, they believe it is two-year-old Aiden Salcido. Medford Police officers were working with the FBI to find Aiden after his mother and father, Hannah Janiak and Daniel Salcido, were found dead Wednesday in Kalispell, Montana. Both were wanted on felony warrants in Oregon after they were convicted of a burglary that...

    FULL TITLE: Dozens of children are removed from Montana youth program amid shocking allegations of abuse including kids being kicked and spat on, forced on 20-mile walks and one even being SHOT with a nail gun The state removed 27 children from a Montana youth facility on Tuesday amid reports of youngsters being hit, kicked, body-slammed and spat on by staff. The kids, aged between 11 and 17, were taken from the Ranch for Kids program in Rexford as part of an investigation into allegations of physical and psychological abuse, officials said. They are being interviewed as part of the...

    Montana Senator Jon Tester and President Trump don’t have a good relationship, as we know from when Tester’s mission was to destroy Rear Admiral Jackson’s nomination as Surgeon General. President Trump went on to strongly support Montana’s Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat occupied by Tester in 2018. That was to be expected, given that the president is the top Republican in the land. Trump’s verbal digs at Tester, though, got the best of the flat-top coiffed Montanan. Now Tester is downright aggressively hostile toward President Trump, as he proved during his appearance on a morning talk show. Tester...

    The senators who are most likely to reject President Trump's nominees are the very ones who want to challenge him in 2020. The Hill's review of two-and-a-half years of vote totals shows Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) voted against more Trump nominees than any other senator. At the same time, Republicans voted virtually in lock step for Trump's nominees; the average GOP senator backed 99 percent of his picks, and the one who went rogue most often -- Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) -- still voted to confirm 93 percent of his nominees. Trump's picks...

    The United States was a mere 28 years old by the time Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and the Corps of Discovery were working their way up the Missouri River. In 1804, the men were nearing present-day Doniphan, Kansas. They spotted a stream on the Kansas side of the river, and as Clark writes: “as this Creek has no name, and this day is the 4th of July, we name this Independence us. [U.S.] Creek.” That night, they camped at a spot which Clark called “one of the most butifull [beautiful] Plains, I ever Saw.” They would dub the area “Joe...

    WASHINGTON — After over 200 years without voting rights, the efforts to allow Washington, DC, to become the 51st state are gaining traction. The House of Representatives has set the first-ever congressional hearing on statehood legislation, and now a majority of the Democrats running for president say they support making DC a state. The House will hold a hearing July 24 for the Washington, D.C. Admission Act, which would put the nation’s capital on even ground with other states, giving it two voting senators and at least one representative. The bill would end “taxation without representation” in DC — a...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio secured a coveted spot for the first Democratic presidential primary debate later this month — despite his failure to get at least 65,000 donors. The Democratic National Committee released the list of the 20 candidates who will partake in the back-to-back debates on June 26 and 27 in Miami. The four contenders who did not make the cut are Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, retired Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel and Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam. NBC is expected to announce the lineup for each night on Friday morning. NBC will randomly select 10...

    National Review ^ | 05/23/2019 | Jim Geraghty
    Every presidential primary ends with one winner and a lot of losers. Some might argue that one or two once-little-known candidates who overperform low expectations get to enjoy a form of moral victory. (Ben Carson and Rick Perry might be happy how the 2016 cycle ended, with both taking roles in Trump’s cabinet. Bernie Sanders might be, too.) But running for president and flopping is a deep disappointment, and while the occasional figure can emerge from a failed bid to move on to different victories — Lamar Alexander and Elizabeth Dole became senators, Jerry Brown became governor again, Howard Dean...

    The name of a Navy veteran may be cleared after he was convicted, fined, and imprisoned for digging ponds in a wooded area near his Montana home, to supply water in case of fire. The Supreme Court has vacated a lower court ruling against Joe Robertson, who was sent to federal prison and ordered to pay $130,000 in restitution through deductions from his Social Security checks. Any definitive legal victory for Robertson would be posthumous, since he died March 18 at age 80. But his lawyers describe the Supreme Court’s action as a “big win” for Robertson’s widow, Carrie, who...

    The Washington Post is discounting America’s win in World War Two because American forces were all “racists.” I guess that we now have to delete America’s part in World War Two from the history books to suit liberal sensibilities just like we are erasing statues to military people all across the nation. The attack on the Allied Forces in WWII came in an idiotic liberal article with the unwieldy title of, “Allied leaders were anti-Nazi, but not anti-racist. We’re now paying the price for their failure.” The article by a foaming-at-the-mouth lib named John Broich — who claims to be...
