Tuesday’s Quick Hits

Quote for the Day…

Success isn’t about how your life looks to others. It’s about how it feels to you. – Michelle Obama

In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:

  • Kayleigh McEnany
  • Stay in Your Lane, Bro…
  • 60 Minutes/Ukraine
  • The Western Word Poll
  • Reading Assignments

KAYLEIGH MCENANY:

The Western Word was one of the first to report that Kayleigh McEnany, the former White House Press Secretary and current member of Fox News, was in Great Falls on Saturday, April 2, to speak at the Foothills Community Christian School’s spring banquet.

Several people posted photos on social media with McEnany, including the sheriff of Cascade County, Jesse Slaughter. Slaughter is running for reelection this year. His post got several likes, but it also had its negative remarks about McEnany and Trump.

It has been entertaining to read the comments, especially when a city commissioner chimes in and tries to be the “moral conscience” of Great Falls.

When you post information on your Facebook page, especially if you are a public official and your posts are for the public to read, you should expect some blowback. We will see the rookie sheriff use his photo with McEnany for his campaign?

See the Facebook post HERE.

STAY IN YOUR LANE, BRO…

Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen joined nine state attorneys general in opposing the confirmation of President Biden’s nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court because of her history of leniency toward child predators.

I don’t think anyone cares what Knudsen thinks about something that is way above his paygrade.

Only two Montana officials, U.S. Senators Jon Tester and Steve Daines, will get to vote on Jackson. We already know how they will vote, and we also know that Jackson will most likely be confirmed.

Read the utterly senseless press release from the Montana DOJ HERE.

60 MINUTES/UKRAINE:

In case you missed 60 Minutes from Sunday night, Scott Pelley looks at how Russia is attacking hospitals and healthcare workers in Ukraine, which is a violation of the Geneva Convention.

Check out the video/story HERE.

The world needs to stop Russia.

THE WESTERN WORD POLL:

This week’s poll question asks, “Should political parties endorse candidates in nonpartisan elections?” (Background)

The results will be released later this week.

READING ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. That particular commissioner, with his long history of nasty and hateful contributions to social media, telling someone else to grow up … that’s some sort of joke, right? The same commissioner who insists he doesn’t care what other people say about his own posts suddenly believes his stern admonishment to someone else is supposed to mean something?

    And I”m sure McEnaney probably did tell a thrilling story about being a BOLD Christian in a world in which, guess what, not everyone is Christian, but the poster who so offended the comissioner was right about the facts … she lied her ass off, and that is not Christian.

  2. The Cascade Democrat Party has no candidates running in the primary against Slaughter. So his win in the primary makes him the winner. But what if Democrats just choose the Republican primary ballot & vote for his opponent? Many republicans chose the Democrat primary ballot & voted for Edwards. I love election years.

    • Mary – good info. I think there are some legislative primaries in Cascade County (3 GOP/1 Dem) that might keep people from crossing over. I thought for sure the Democrats would find someone to run for Sheriff. Unless there’s some funny business, Slaughter should win.
      Thanks, JmB

      • I find it extremely disturbing that most folks still don’t seem to understand what Slaughter has done by declaring himself to be a constitutionalist sheriff. It takes a bit of cursory research to discover that this is a hate movement that evolved from other hate groups. Why would we want that in Great Falls?

        I have followed hate groups in Montana since they first started coming in about twenty-five years ago. I was in on the ground floor with the Montana Human Rights organization. I have seen their proliferation first hand. The Dems are extremely remiss if they can’t field a candidate. Hopefully, the other candidate will win the primary.
