Tuesday’s Quick Hits

Today’s quote…

May we never forget that freedom isn’t free. – Unknown

Today’s column takes a quick look at these people/issues:

  • Serve Montana
  • Hello Garfield
  • Official Election Defense Fund
  • Defense Secretary Mark Esper
  • Fox News & Kayleigh McEnany
  • General Services Administration
  • One More Thing


Montana Governor-elect Greg Gianforte has launched a new website called “Serve Montana” to help him find “well-qualified, dedicated innovators to serve Montana.”

Since there has not been a Republican Governor in Montana since Moby Dick was a minnow (January 3, 2005), there should be a lot of openings.

Check out “Serve Montana” HERE.


I did a quick check of the Montana SOS website to see which Montana County had the highest percentage of votes for Trump/Pence.

If my research is correct, that would be Garfield County. Out of 813 votes, Trump/Pence received 764.

That’s 93%.

As for Biden/Harris, Glacier County came in first with 64%.


Yesterday I took a look at all the emails I received on Sunday from the Trump campaign. The emails were asking for donations for the “Official Election Defense Fund” to help him secure victory.

On Sunday I received 29 emails from the Trump campaign.

Today (Monday) I received another 28 emails.

Great googly moogly…


In case you missed it, President Donald Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Monday via Twitter. This was Trump’s third Secretary of Defense.

I expect more firings – only the most loyal to the President will survive. That last sentence sounds like something I would write about a dictator.

Read the whole story from the Associated Press (AP) HERE.

These are troubling times in the kingdom…


White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who is also a spokesperson for the Trump campaign (this should be a violation of the Hatch Act), was shut down by Neil Cavuto of Fox News on Monday.

The Hill reported:

Fox News on Monday cut away from a press conference during which White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany accused Democrats of “welcoming” fraud and illegal voting.

“She is charging that the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continuing showing you this,” Fox News host Neil Cavuto said on air as the network cut away from the press conference in Washington, D.C.

When Trump starts losing Fox News, you know the end is near.


The Associated Press (AP) reported that the General Services Administration (GSA) “held off on formally beginning the transition, preventing (President-elect) Biden’s teams from gaining access to federal agencies. An agency spokesperson said late Monday that an “ascertainment” on the winner of the election had not yet been made.”

The head of GSA is a Trump appointee.

I guess the Trump team thinks that withholding pens, pencils, computers, desks, and office space for transition activities will stop Biden. Crazy.


Wednesday, November 11, is Veterans Day.

  1. The willful foot-dragging at the GSA also prevents the in-coming Biden administration from receiving the the full reporting from the intelligence community so they can prepared for whatever disasters tRump is hiding behind the wall of national security. He dispatched on of his WH lawyers over to keep them in line.

    “Five days before the presidential election, President Trump quietly dispatched attorney Trent Benishek of the White House general counsel’s office to the General Services Administration.

    The agency, which oversees government leases among other administrative tasks, is little known to the general public. Nor is Benishek’s name among those that have become a staple of Trumpworld reporting.”

    His Dad was a corrupt Congressman from Wisconsin.

  2. About that “Official Election Defense Fund”, the proof is in the fine print: It’s a vehicle to solicit money to pay off campaign debts.

    “50% of each contribution, up to a maximum of $2,800 ($5,000), to be designated toward DJTFP’s 2020 general election account for general election debt retirement until such debt is retired. 50% of each contribution, up to a maximum of $2,800 ($5,000), to be designated toward DJTFP’s Recount Account. Any amount that exceeds the applicable contribution limit for 2020 general election debt retirement, including any amounts donated to DJTFP after such debt has been retired, will be designated in full toward DJFTP’s Recount Account, up to a maximum of $2,800 ($5,000).”
