Dr. Al Olszewski has my vote for U.S. Senate because of his stand on health & veteran’s care, national defense, and property and water rights. Al believes our state and federal constitutions are to be always followed. Therefore, he does not support the CSKT Compact. It is unconstitutional to take all the water rights owned by individuals on the Reservation and give them to the Tribe and to provide Off-reservation tribal water rights to manage water flow which depreciates the value of property of thousands of people.
Both Russ Fagg and Troy Downing have stated that they support the Compact because it was a negotiated settlement by the Montana legislature and would prevent years of litigation over water rights. Both statements are incorrect. First, there was no negotiation. The legislature could not amend the Compact. Second, in adjudication the Water Court would sort and manage the filed off-reservation water rights on degree of similarity and legal validity. Each case (group of individuals) would be issued an order. Judge McElyea has indicated he would use the same procedure.
Matt Rosendale cannot be elected, as Republications would lose control of the Montana Land Board because Tim Fox is very influenced by the Governor.
Randy Brodehl is the most qualified candidate for county commissioner because of his financial and management experience as a legislator and success in business. Gary Krueger supports the CSKT compact.
My pick for sheriff is Calvin Berringer because he has the most experience and is active in many organizations and David Dunn for HD 9 and Robert Welzel for HD 7.
Please vote for the following Precinct incumbents if you see them on your Republican ballot: McGregor Rhodes, Heidi Roedel and Donald (Mark) Roedel. Aleyna Raymond and Jolene Regier are also good choices.
Earlier in the day President Trump tweeted that “there will be big news coming soon for our great American Autoworkers,” promising that ” After many decades of losing your jobs to other countries, you have waited long enough!”
‘Every member of the House is accorded the opportunity to bring up impeachment’
If Americans give the House of Representatives back to the Democratic Party this November, one of first things that will happen is the impeachment of President Trump, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said Tuesday.
(Catherine Vandemoer, Ph.D.) One of the most disappointing elements of this year’s primary election in Montana is the extent to which candidates who claim they support the CSKT Compact know nothing about it. Recall that in 2015 a question was asked on the House floor whether anyone in that body had read the compact. Only 3 representatives raised their hands. Thus, the Montana legislature’s vote, in addition to being unconstitutional for lack of a supermajority, was also uninformed.
Al Olszewski is running for US Senate in 2018 from Montana. Al is a statesman who stands for not only the US Constitution, but the Montana Constitution as well. And, for the record, Al has taken the Oath to defend both. Hear why Al Olszewski is the only real choice for US Senate in 2018.
The alleged coalition of Farmers and Ranchers of Montana, or FARM, was created by a group of individuals with the assistance and guidance of Mercury. Mercury (officials), by their own admission on their website, describe themselves as a “high stakes public strategy firm who use their expertise and reach to gain competitive advantage for clients.”
Is it possible that politics in Montana are little more than a corrupt microcosm of federal politics? Were the shenanigans that were pulled in the 2015 Montana legislature by “responsible republicans” to pass Medicaid Expansion and the CSKT Compact just the tip of the corruption iceberg? The answer to these questions is a resounding YES.

The post-Parkland gun control push may have netted zero action in Congress but it has certainly found takers in one of the most unlikely of places—five Republican Governors who have surrendered ground on gun control or made clear their intentions to do so.
