    Overwhelming is the only word which properly describes the growing list of 2020 Presidential candidates vying to unseat Donald Trump. To date, there are the officially declared, the yet to declare, and a handful of teetering outliers. The outliers arent in the running per se, but in the event no Democrat is able to garner the party nomination, one of them might be persuaded to step up to the podium. The Declared Candidates:Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Robert ORourke, Pete Buttigieg, Corey Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Jay Inslee, Tulsi Gabbard, John Hickenlooper, John Delaney,...

  • Citing climate change, U.S. judge blocks oil and gas drilling in large swath of Wyoming

    BILLINGS, Mont. A judge blocked oil and gas drilling across almost 500 square miles in Wyoming and said the U.S. government must consider climate change impacts more broadly as it leases huge swaths of public land for energy exploration. The order marks the latest in a string of court rulings over the past decade - including one last month in Montana - that have faulted the U.S. for inadequate consideration of greenhouse gas emissions when approving oil, gas and coal projects on federal land. U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in Washington appeared to go a step further than other...

    A decade ago, folks in northern states such as Minnesota, South and North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho were watching large swaths of their pine forests die off due to invasive pine beetles. The pine beetles bored beneath the bark of pine trees and introduced a fungus and larvae which weakened and then killed the trees.

    The Senate on Tuesday passed the most sweeping conservation legislation in a decade, protecting millions of acres of land and hundreds of miles of wild rivers across the country and establishing four new national monuments honoring heroes including Civil War soldiers and a civil rights icon. The 662-page measure, which passed 92 to 8, represented an old-fashioned approach to dealmaking that has largely disappeared on Capitol Hill. Senators from across the ideological spectrum celebrated home-state gains and congratulated each other for bridging the partisan divide. It touches every state, features the input of a wide coalition of our colleagues, and...
  • Not just Oregon: Saudi students in at least 8 states, Canada vanish while facing criminal charges

    Theyre not just in Oregon. University students from Saudi Arabia have vanished while facing criminal charges here and in at least seven other states as well as Canada evidence that a growing number of defendants from the wealthy Persian Gulf kingdom have fled justice in the United States. There are likely more to be discovered. The Oregonian/OregonLive uncovered five examples in Oregon and began searching other states in late January. Weve found similar cases in Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin. We also found two cases in Nova Scotia: Saudi students in two separate incidents skipped bail...

    New York Post ^ | February 7, 2017 | 10:53pm | Marisa Schultz
    In a rare move, the Senate voted late Tuesday to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren from speaking out against Sen. Jeff Sessions, President Trumps nominee for attorney general. The Republican-led Senate voted 49-43 to uphold a floor ruling that Warren (D-Mass.) violated Senate Rule 19 by impugning the character of Sessions during her lengthy speech against his confirmation. A separate vote to allow Warren to continue to speak failed effectively silencing the outspoken progressive from continuing her anti-Sessions speech. The dust-up on the Senate floor began shortly before 7 p.m. when Warren took the microphone to make a long, impassioned...

    Washington, D.C. – Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) spoke with Townhall Friday just prior to his speech at the March for Life rally. He explained why he’s optimistic about pro-life efforts in the Senate and why he considers President Trump to be the most pro-life president in our country’s history.“We have the most pro-life president that we have seen in the history of our country,” he told Townhall, “when you look at both the administrative actions he’s taken as president within the White House but also moving through thirty, thirty circuit court judges, conservative judges, the most circuit court judges moved...

    On 11 November2018, on Sunday morning, Anders Broste was hunting with a friend. He had already harvested his deer, weeks earlier. He had an elk tag, so he had his rifle along in case he was fortunate enough to encounter an elk. He knew there were plenty of deer in the area. Broste was using two hands to move through heavy brush and alders. His friend was about a hundred and fifty yards away. It is a common and successful hunting technique.Broste saw the bear as it lifted its head from its bed. Then, the bear charged. Broste had...

    A national logging organization is offering support to President Trump following catastrophic wildfires in California and a political debate over the causes of the destructive blazes. President Trump blamed poor forest management for wildfires in California and throughout the West, and there is truth to statements he has made, said Daniel Dructor, executive vice president of the American Loggers Council, a coalition of state and regional associations that represents independent contract loggers. Its time to rise above political posturing and recognize that active forest management including logging, thinning, grazing and controlled burning are tools that can and must...

    Canadas government is joining President Trump in criticizing a Montana judges ruling that blocked construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. We are committed to supporting our energy sector and the hard-working Canadians it employs. Our government has always supported the Keystone XL project, and we are disappointed by this decision, Vanessa Adams, spokeswoman for Canadian Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi, said in a statement. It is important for good, middle-class jobs in Canada and for a successful energy export market. The project has received all necessary approvals in Canada, she said. Adams said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government is taking...

But the calls that most disturbed Tanya Gersh consisted only of the sound of gunshots being fired.

    The House passed a bill Friday that would remove federal protections for the gray wolf, allowing ranchers, hunters and others to kill the animals. The Manage Our Wolves Act passed 196-180, mainly with Republican support. It would direct the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to end Endangered Species Act protections for the species and prohibit lawsuits challenging the removal. The GOP and many western states have long argued that four decades of federal protections have been too successful in bringing the wolf back from the brink of extinction, and the species now poses a significant threat to livestock, pets and...

    Democrats had a decent haul on election night but since Election Day the Democrats have had a spectacular run. In the US Senate Democrats picked up two seats since Election Day. ** In Montana Senator Jon Tester who was behind on election day had a huge haul overnight and won by 5 points. ** In Arizona Taliban-supporting Marxist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner a week after votes were cast after being behind on election night ** In Florida Democrats have discovered a secret stash of 83,000 votes since election day! Senator Bill Nelson is now surprisingly only...

    Tuesday’s midterm elections weren’t a slam dunk for either party, not by anyone’s estimation. Democrats managed to avoid another apocalyptic election meltdown and keep their base from flipping out by flipping the House, if barely, and Republicans added slightly to their already slight majority in the Senate. We sent at least three Red State fake moderate Kavanaugh thumbs-downers packing and, even better, the GOP ‘squishy caucus’ ranks have been whittled down to Ben Sasse and his imaginary better angel. There’s still Collins and Murkowski, of course, but now President Trump’s judicial nominees aren’t depending on ‘good feelz’ from either to...

    I woke up yesterday at around 0500 EST and looked at the election results. At that time Rosendale(R) was ahead of Tester(D) in the Montana race for the US Senate seat. I checked back at around 0730 and Rosendale was still ahead by several thousand votes with something like 94% of the precincts reporting. I then look again at around 1100 and Tester had been declared the victor?

    Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) is the projected winner in Montana, surviving a race that tightened in the final weeks amid heavy campaigning by President Trump and his eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr. Tester, a third-generation farmer from north central Montana, ran on his record and did not invite any prominent Democratic politicians to campaign for him in an effort to keep the focus on him and his opponent, Matt Rosendale, a Maryland transplant who moved to the state in 2002.
