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.
As for Biden/Harris, Glacier County came in first with 64%.
OFFICIAL ELECTION DEFENSE FUND:
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…
DEFENSE SECRETARY MARK ESPER:
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.

These are troubling times in the kingdom…
FOX NEWS & KAYLEIGH MCENANY:
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.
GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION:
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.
ONE MORE THING:
Wednesday, November 11, is Veterans Day.
