Carlson said that, until Trump took office, questioning one's government was considered patriotic.

"Now," he said. "Asking questions is a sign of disloyalty to this country [according to Democrats]."

He added that Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intel Committee, was caught texting a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch, "I'd rather not have a paper trail," after trying to use the official to access dossier author Christopher Steele.

Carlson said because he is not a "hysterical liberal... using [the] justice system for cheap political ends," he won't be calling on Warner to resign and be brought up on treason charges.

He summed up his remarks by saying that there is now proof that Obama or those in his orbit were spying on a rival political campaign.

"There better be a legitimate reason," he said.

The proof is that Obama administration not only knew, but could have been promoting it.

Or is "Knock it off Putten" HIGHLY PRESIDENTIAL.
Face it. Hillary pulled out all stops for her election. She lost. THANK GOD.

I'm not that interesting or radical, But I sure don't want the government spying on me.
Now you may not think much of Trey Gowdy but he is one heck of a legal mind.
He nailed Hillary in her web of evil.

But then the LOW INFORMATION VOTERS and DEPLORABLE should be deported.

CHEERS, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

So the Democrats not agreeing with cherry-picked information and half-truths to delegitimize an FBI investigation is what Republicans see as being unpatriotic.

But a legitimate FBI investigation of the president's advisors collusion with Russia and the president's knowledge of their collusion is being hysterical.

Got it.

Whatever Hillary, Obama, and their political allies did or didn't do before the election will eventually come out in the Mueller investigation. Republicans and Democrats both need stop interfering with the investigation.

And just for the record, I completely agree that Hillary should have been investigated for her use of a personal email server. I thought the Benghazi investigation was a partisan witch hunt because Obama kicked the republicans butts in the 2012 election.

I live in Helena, Montana, "RR01".

Graduated from CCDHS Class of 1979. I freely post with my real name here, which I have done since, what? 2005 or so? I'm sure Larry or Dave could figure out the date.

Bottom line, I have been posting here under my real name for a very long time. I am not a moronic, sophomoric anonymous Troll who posts under a very stupid pseudonym - Rural Route 1? WTF? Do you think you are Barney Fife? If so, you besmirch the name of Deputy Fife - he sure the heck has a lot more moral character than you.

As a graduate of Custer County high school, it would be disappointing if we were to learn that RR01 is a product of the Miles City/Custer County school system. Likewise, given his grasp, or lack thereof, of the English language, it would be surprising if he even made it into high school.

"Bully Gunnar".
That is an interesting concept, though I have never met most of you, I feel that I know a (little) bit about most of you, and someone bullying Gunnar seems pretty silly.
Gunnar has never impressed me as the "back down" kind of fellow.

I have learned a lot by lurking here for the last dozen or so years, and the regulars that many of the newer folks whine about are the ones that have been providing solid, detailed info about a variety of local and national/international events.
Often, the perspective of a former resident is quite valuable, and I have learned more of why things are the way they are here in MC and Custer County.

Anyway, I wanted to see the Red Elvi, but I can hope they make a swing through here later.

I think david schott needs to cuddle with gunnar to help him over his being bullied.gunner likes to bully people,online of course because he cannot bully them any place else.Maybe spooning will help the two of them cope.I think they will have to cuddle in their "safe space" These people are petty (gunnar and david schott) and causing trouble over a band coming here that puts on a very good show.They put on such a good show that audience participation should be mandatory but it is not necessary as it seems anyone in attendance that is able bodied participates.Make the show if you can and support your Miles City based organizations that bring you this entertainment. And hey,buy a bumpersticker after the show and maybe they will keep coming back.If they get here and you are at the show and there is snow on the ground I guarantee it will make your winter shorter.

Well half name hanson who posts under a fictitious name.I had business with the high school here.I will not go in to details because they are none of your business and you would not understand them anyway.I wanted a student to help with something.I am not kidding this ended up with the idiot in charge that day making a special appearance to tell me that the school does not allow students to interact with adults. That is a quote. I looked around and saw a bunch of teachers and admin and looked at the idiot who had played way too many games of football without a helmet and thought to myself,that is the smartest thing you have ever said in your life.I assume you walked up and down the same steps I did that day hanson and you proudly seem to claim that you are smart or something.

Snowy: I have a question for you. Are you stalking me? You seem to know I post at the library? How do you know that? Who are you? And, by the way, are you the same man who called my home phone anonymously last year several times and left messages indicating you do not like what I post on milescity.com. The police had to get involved in that situation. Snowy, the Miles City police and Webmaster of this website know who you are. You may be able to hide like a coward under a pseudonym but remember if anything happens to me, you are the number one suspect. So, beware, Snowy, legally (in a variety of ways) you are treading on very thin ice.

In the meantime, today the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee held hearings on threats to our nation. Intelligence officials testified that Russia is intending to interfere by any means available in the 2018 midterm elections. For those interested in hearing what the intelligence officials had to say, here's a link to the hearing.

Also, here is a New York Times article about the hearing and Russia's intention to damage our democracy again: "Russia Sees Midterm Elections as Chance to Sow Fresh Discord, Intelligence Chiefs Warn" by Matthew Rosenberg and Nicholas Fandos, February 13, 2018

This Russian Collusion thread is PUTTEN out played our President Election. Of course OBAMA told him too knock it off. BOY OH BOY that sure scared him. Trump won fair and square. Now proven the Hillary machine got caught with pants down to their ankles. And what is much worse it is proven TRUMP got spied by his own government. I have to admit the results of the Republican Primary, sure surprised me. Let alone he won the electoral vote. The rust belt play was the smart move.
As for threat of stalking you or making any calls too you is your little brain thinking your a legend in your own mind.
As for choosing to remain unnamed, It is solely for the purpose of my professional friends I dine and have an occasional cup of coffee with when I'm in town. FYI, I haven't been in Montana for Months.
As for the webmaster he knows how to get a Hold of me. As for the MC police or Sheriff's office. I have no doubt I'm not on there radar.

The February 12, 2018 issue of Time magazine on page 23 published a chart of all the countries in the world and their nuclear weapons. Russia tops the list with 7,000 nukes. There is also an article in the same issue of Time on page 28, "The Missile Factory: Did Former Scientists Help Arm North Korea" by Simon Shuster/Dnipro, Ukraine.

Many important officials in our government and military (and regular folks like me) are concerned that Russia, who had a clear favorite in the 2016 presidential election, is doing all it can to weaken our democracy. Some officials, like Senator John McCain, think Russian interference in U.S. elections is an act of war. And, many people, like me do not understand Trump's reluctance to enforce sanctions against Russia -- sanctions that were passed by both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.

I totally accept that Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election; just like Al Gore lost in 2000. What is most disturbing is that our adversary, Russia, had a clear favorite to win that election and did all it could to make that happen -- and, is intent on doing it again in 2018. Our democracy is in peril and that, I think, is very disturbing.

WAKE UP, AMERICA!

The "very stable genius" is probably feeling less stable today.

"Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that he had already seen evidence Russia was targeting U.S. elections in November, when Republican control of the House of Representatives and Senate are at stake, plus a host of positions in state governments."

“Frankly, the United States is under attack,” Coats said at an annual hearing on worldwide threats.

Take off your blinders Webmaster and see that these two people are bullies and are allowed to bully here.You even chastised me for what you interpreted as an attack on someone`s family,do not remember who,then I mentioned is was he who drug his family in to things here to supposedly justify his actions.You had not even read his posts and he is a buddy of yours so what ever your buddies say or do is aOk with you.Take a look at both sides of things and read previous posts.Many people here do not use their real names for many reasons,but the No.1 reason is that they do not trust your monitors or even you really because you have control who monitors here.Look at the things they do.Look up people`s ISP and announce where they are from,what is next david schott are you going to start publishing people`s home addresses?bridgidier makes up stories and then must repeat them to himself and then his story is true.But it is only true in his mind alone,but then he tries to infect and probably does infect people here because they are afraid of him.I started a post here about a really good band and immediately without reading my post gunnar starts bashing Trump.Go ahead,read the post webmaster.Then when your buddies attack me or someone else it is just no fair for that to happen and they go cry in their safe space and then Mighty Webmaster comes on and says they can dish it out but they can`t take it,like brigier I think saying yes he was on welfare and blamed him getting someone pregnant in high school as the reason.I asked if the child was born illegitimate.Well you were on welfare but how deep?Did you contribute to the financials in any way.If so how and what was the $ amount?Is all that you contributed limited to the birth of the child getting someone pregnant in high school?Pretty fair question that was not answered and you got all upset at me for asking him a simple yes or no question that was well within the conversation here.Soooooo Webmaster I suggest you post a list of people that CAN be picked on and abused and a list of people who if anyone if anyone stands up to their abuse they have to go get their banky and coloring book and cry.And that guy cactus plains or whoever he is and the contrails?Well he was right and maybe all of you know it alls in your own mind should apologize to him.Do some research.Now last because I have to get back to work,the monitors here who seek approval online or will cry can change their or anyone else`s they please numbers to read a perfect score.Well I am not a monitor and I cannot change my score and wouldn`t anyway and take note webmaster,I too have a perfect score.Well how is this for contributing webmaster.Once again I have contributed the truth.


Oh and tell the people here if you can read the emails that are sent here,or if you can log on this site under someone else`s account.This is funny.I expect my score to jump without anybody waiting for any of the above mentioned to answer to anything in the post.Easiest way out would be to just deny everything I have posted and then repeat it to yourselves until you believe it.your flock will believe.

I'm sorry, but contrary to your belief, I have no interest in babysitting this site.

I have a short attention span here and don't want to read through 45+ messages, or even a long rambling one from yourself to figure out who you are accusing of being "bullies" - especially since the posts you've made in the past seem to lack a complete understanding of knowledge and technology, and include some pretty stupid stuff - such as believing in chemtrails and such.

RR01 wrote:

Well, that's already three. So still not sure which two you are referring to.

Not using your real name is disingenuous and dishonest from the start. People that show up here hiding behind fake monikers typically tend to be only trouble makers. I suspect you did originally use your real name, but created a different account to hide it. Which is even kinda a little bit more devious.

Also, this whole thing about monitors, monitors, monitors ... what in the hell are you talking about?

I still don't get what this "monitor" and "score" thing is. No one changes anything in your posts. Are you talking about the little number next to your name? If you're bitching about that, a computer out in the cloud calculates that little number automatically from a very primitive algorithm in which no humans are involved. It really doesn’t mean anything, other than what that particular computer algorithm thinks about you. No one can modify that number without rewriting the source code – and I’m the only one who has access. I’d be happy to show how the number is generated, right here, on this site – but you would not understand it, however the general gist is positive is good, negative is bad.

...

You know, I was going to try and break down your crazy ass post further ... but it keeps going on, is nonsense, and is a waste of my time.

...

How about instead, I tell a story. Here's my story. It's fiction.

Some people. They come to Montana. After a few years, or 10, or perhaps even 20 - they think they are Montana. They think they are Montanan. But the thing is, they aren't.

Some of those people are just white trash from other states, other areas. They breed offspring that commit rape, and theft, and other felonies. They come and stir up trouble at places (such as this website) created for a community that they were really never a part of. They try to raise crazy issues like chemtrails, and have a vast misunderstanding of how technology works – while otherwise toiling away at their daily minimum wage job.

But I dunno, that’s just an idea for the beginning, and perhaps it’s a bit too dystopic. I'd probably need an editor and a better idea for a story – 'cause that one seems like a dead end.

For a long time, Trump has been blustering and blaming the Democrats for spreading fake news and conducting a "witch hunt" about the Russians interfering in the 2016 presidential election. Last Friday's 37-page indictment of 13 Russians and 3 Russian organizations changed all that.

"The indictment says that while the Russians began their scheme in 2014 with the goal of undermining the American democratic system, they eventually shifted their focus to trying to help elect Mr. Trump and disparage his opponent, Hillary Clinton."

Here is an article about how Trump is now dealing with the facts revealed in the indictment! And, the thing is, there are likely to be even more indictments and facts revealed that Trump has to deal with sometime in the future.

Well folks, I may be jumping to conclusions, but here's what I think. After reading today's (02-22-18) (and most recent) indictment against Paul Manafort, Jr. and Richard Gates III, I think it might be possible the Russians were financing part of the Trump campaign with millions of dollars of laundered Russian money. You will recall that Paul Manafort, Jr. was the campaign manager of Donald J. Trump, Jr. Of course, those charges have not been made yet but I think there exists the strong possibility of another forthcoming indictment with even more charges -- charges that might indicate treason. Of course, I could be wrong. Time will tell. Stay tuned. In the meantime, read the February 22, 2018 indictment against Manafort and Gates here:

"His fraud was 10 years ago." Not according to the indictment which indicates on page 26, item No. 42: "MANAFORT applied to a second, bank, Lender D. Between approximately July 2016 and January 2017, MANAFORT, with the assistance of GATES, sought and secured approximately $16,000,000 in two loans from Lender D. MANAFORT used the Bridgehampton property as collateral for one loan, and the Union Street property for the other."

The indictment also indicates on page 2, item No. 1: Defendants PAUL J. MANAFORT, JR. (MANAFORT) and RICHARD W. GATES III (GATES) served for years as political consultants and lobbyists. Between at least 2006 and 2015, MANAFORT and GATES acted as unregistered agents of a foreign government and foreign political parties."

Item No. 7, states: "In total, more than $75,000,000 flowed through the offshore accounts. MANAFORT, with the assistance of GATES, laundered more than $30,000,000, income that he concealed from the United States Department of the Treasure (Treasure), the Department of Justice, and others. GATES obtained more than $3,000,000 from the offshore accounts, income that he too concealed from the Treasury, the Department of Justice, and others."

It is important to remember that Mr. Gates has already pleaded guilty. We shall see how things develop in the legal system with Mr. Manafort.

This Youtube Trevor Noah video is from July 2016 (during the presidential campaign) and is a little dated but the part starting at 3:22 where Paul Manafort (who was Trump's campaign manager) denies Russia involvement is really interesting given what is written in the February 22, 2018 indictment. More indictments will probably follow.

Time will tell. Stay tuned. And, in the meantime, WAKE UP, AMERICA!

Bad new for Paul Manafort, Jr. His partner in crime, Rick Gates, is pleading guilty and cooperating with the Special Prosecutor.

"If Mr. Manafort continues to fight the charges in a trial, testimony from Mr. Gates could give Mr. Mueller’s team a first-person account of the criminal conduct that is claimed in the indictments — a potential blow to Mr. Manafort’s defense strategy."

So, with Gates admission of guilt, it is evident Trump surrounded himself with liars and thieves with ties to foreign adversarial governments (Russia), who laundered money, committed fraud and were tax cheats.

I am waiting for the day when Mr. Mueller is able to request Trump's taxes as part of his investigation. I'm thinking Trump's taxes may explain why he is so reluctant to enforce the sanctions against Russia, an adversary of the United States -- sanctions that were recently passed by the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.

Very fast breaking news today in the Russia interference investigation! Just hours after Rick Gates pleaded guilty, Trump's former campaign manager, Paul J. Manafort, Jr. has been served another indictment by the Mueller investigatory team. Wow! That was fast!

"Hours after Gates' guilty plea, news broke that Manafort had been hit with another indictment. Mueller accused Manafort of secretly paying former European politicians to lobby on behalf of Ukraine."

The reporters at the New York Times are great at keeping lists. So, here is another one:

"Over 100 Charges, 19 People and 3 Companies: The Mueller Inquiry, Explained" by Emily Cochraine and Alicia Parlapiano, New York Times, February 23, 2018

"In the nine months since Robert S. Mueller III was appointed to oversee the investigation into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, he has issued more than 100 criminal counts against 19 people and three companies. Of the 19 people, five — including three Trump associates — have pleaded guilty. Thirteen are Russians accused of meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Here is an assessment of the charges and the people facing them in the special counsel investigation."
