As we have covered on numerous occasions, the CSKT Water Compact has fueled no small amount of division between members of Montana’s Republican Party.

At EIV Radio, our mission is to allow for both sides of the issue to be heard, as often as we can book guests for the topic.

In this upcoming week, we will have both Representative Kerry White and Dr. Kate Vandemoer on the broadcast to hear their views.

Recently, however, we had some information come our way that we thought needed to be exposed on video.

Based on said information, we decided to call the former Chairman of the Republican Party, Ken Miller, to have him on the show, along with returning guest, Randy Pinocci of the Montana Public Service Commission.

The subject of the interview below is an important one, as we discuss the violation of not only the Montana Republican Platform, but the Montana Constitution, as well.

The topic of the CSKT Water Compact is of enormous significance, as water rights across America risk being influenced by the decisions made here in Montana.

So please take time to watch this and all of the interviews on the subject of the CSKT Water Compact; as many aspects of your, and your posterity’s, future are at stake.

If we are truly a nation of laws, then we must follow the code of “equal justice for all.”  Sadly, those who have stolen the power from the people have manipulated the system to favor themselves.

One need not to look any farther than the Montana Commissioner of Political Practices, or COPP, to find a bias in favor of Democrats and against Republicans.

Montana Public Service Commissioner, Randy Pinocci traveled to Israel and came away with a great plan to solve the coal needs of both nations

 

 

Staff Writer               Excellence in Voting               December 16, 2019

 

On a global scale, it might appear that the desire for coal is waning; if not all but dead.  However, does that portray an accurate picture of what is real?

Currently, coal is still being used on a massive scale.  And if history is any guide, the apparent good intentions of those who wish for a change, no matter how strong the desire, rarely overcomes the fact that it’s nearly impossible for 25 or 30 nations to agree on anything.

So is coal here to stay for awhile, or does it complete the circle of irony and disappear back into the soil like the dinosaurs from where it came?

No one can know what the future of coal ultimately holds, but for now it’s literally on fire.

One of the biggest consumers of coal in the Middle East is the State of Israel.  In fact, Israel uses more coal than all of its neighbors combined.

Montana has some of the cleanest burning coal in America, which is paramount for Israel and its people.

The Montana Public Service Commission regulates energy in Montana, so any plan or alliance would fall under their watchful eye.

Randy Pinocci is one of only 5 Public Service Commissioners who regulate energy for the entire State of Montana, and, as luck would have it, he traveled to Israel and visited their coal plant while there.

 

Randy Pinocci – Montana Public Service Commission

 

Knowing that Israel uses a lot of coal and that Montana’s coal industry could use a boost, especially the Sydney Coal Fire Plant, Randy came up with a plan to try and solve the coal needs of both nations.

With US Foreign Aide to Israel going into the billions and with Israel using some of that money to buy coal from Russia, Randy’s plan to use Montana coal deserves a critical review.

Randy joins me in the interview linked below to discuss the possibilities of his Montana\Israeli Economic Alliance

Montana Representative for House District 52, Rodney Garcia is one bold fellow.

Rarely does one find a legislator, locally or nationally, who voices their displeasure with the “system” in such an outspoken manner.

The system which Representative Garcia speaks against most vociferously is Montana DPHHS; an organization that has been proven to be lawless, ruthless and seemingly unaccountable to anyone.

Yes, Rodney Garcia is a bold man, indeed.

Rodney Garcia has appeared on my NorthWest Liberty News broadcast numerous times.  Each time he has been consistent with his displeasure of DPHHS and the lawless kidnapping that they perpetrate on not only Montana Families, but families across America.  In his first appearance last winter (linked below), Representative Garcia calls for 1K dollars a day fines and jail for DPHHS workers.

 

 

Most recently, Representative Garcia appeared on NorthWest Liberty News with DPHHS victim, Debbie Westlake to issue a warning to those who would dare come against the cash-generating behemoth known as DPHHS.  Towards the end of the same interview, Ms. Westlake officially announced her intention to run for the 2020 Montana House of Representatives.

 

 

 

If you are unaware of the story behind the aforementioned, Debbie Westlake and why she would decide to take matters into her own hands and run for the Montana House, watch the video linked below.

Public Service Commissioner Randy Pinocci said Friday that the Legislature passed a bill last session that raised rates for NorthWestern Energy customers to fund the invasive mussels program, and every legislator who voted for the bill should be removed from office.

“I’m telling you he should be replaced,” Pinocci said. “I don’t care if they are Republican, Democrat, Constitution Party, you go after them.They were not acting in your best interest and I shouldn’t be the judge, you should be.

Conrad, Montana’s “King of the Deal,” Llew Jones has a lot more in common with Joe Biden than he does with Donald Trump

 

james white               Excellence in Voting Radio             October 7, 2019

 

 

 

As of late, one can scarcely watch a news program, fake or otherwise, nor glance at a newspaper without the names Joe and Hunter Biden dominating the space.

For a man who is seeking to hold the nation’s highest office, what could be better?

Pages and pages of free press, along with every major mainstream news station collectively mentioning your name hundreds of times an hour.

It’s a dream come true for any candidate who is running for office.

Yeah, not so much in this case.

The reason that the Biden’s name has been so prominent lately, as you likely already know, is because Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are being exposed as international pay-for-play, money laundering scoundrels.

The “club” in which people like Joe and Hunter Biden hold membership in is filled with backroom deals, open nepotism and favors allocated to the highest bidder.

Things like sweetheart book deals, high-paying, corporate board positions and close family members landing seven-figure consulting contracts, with seemingly no competition, are all benefits of “club membership.”

Sadly, most of you reading this article, along with yours truly, will never enjoy club benefits.

This is not the case, however, for everyone living here in Montana where I broadcast my radio show, and from where I am penning this article now.

Montana’s legislative session is not one that operates full-time, as it meets for only about 4 months every 2 years.  Nonetheless, that is plenty of time for consummating backroom deals and cementing political favors.

In Montana, no one does that better than Conrad’s own, Llew Jones

As we circle back to the Biden’s and their shenanigans, we see a template that begins to emerge.  A template that seems to pass not only state lines, but party lines as well.

Llew Jones, a Republican, has seemingly stolen a page out of the Biden family playbook and applied it here to Montana politics.

Before you dismiss this notion as hyperbole, please keep reading.

Thankfully , much of the foundational research into Mr. Jones has already been completed and published on a website called, Capitol Whispers.

(Ed Note:  I appreciate the research done by the people at Capitol Whispers and I wish to thank them for allowing me to use their material)

However, if Jones is following the Biden playbook, then what we see published could be just the tip of the iceberg.  Let’s begin.

 

 

 

It Appears that Sweetgrass Development has a Real Sweet Deal – LINK

This article lays out how an organization, which has Llew Jones as a sitting board member, received a 400K Brownfields Assessment grant in early 2016, and at the time the article was written (Dec 2018) had not completed any work and did not appear to have any employees.  Despite the obvious incompetence of the situation on it’s face, Sweetgrass Development planned to apply for another grant in 2019

 

 A Public Service Announcement: Missing Dark Money – LINK

This article, essentially, explores why Llew Jones is affiliated with at least 32 Limited Liability Companies, and, curiously, why so many (22) are listed at the same address?  Having multiple LLC’s is not a crime in Montana, or in any state as far as I know, but the optics are not good for a sitting legislator.

 

Black Sheep Llew Jones Banks on Wool & Other Subsidies – LINK

This article outlines how LLew Jones has benefited from Farm Subsidies intended to help small, family farms across America.  Since Jones’ family has participated in the program, they have received $1,142,014 in taxpayer dollars.  Again, there is nothing illegal about it; but please don’t fault me if I’m not surprised that Llew Jones found a way to cash in handsomely on this deal.

 

The Last Time Llew Jones Sat on the Appropriations Committee, He Funneled 300K to His Wife – LINK

This article outlines how Llew Jones used his position in Montana Government to not only appropriate funds, but to encourage his wife, Carolyn Jones, to create a company that 2 weeks after creation secured the lion’s share of said appropriated funds.  This is naked nepotism, and for no small amount of cash.

 

Llew Jones is One Lucky Guy…His Family, too – LINK

This article outlines how Llew Jones used his connections with Northwestern Energy to elicit a purchase of a 24-MW wind farm from a company called Invenergy, by Northwestern Energy.  It seems pretty harmless until you discover that the person who worked at Invenergy and was in charge of product oversight was none other than Llew Jones’ son, Aaron.  A coincidence, I’m sure.

 

Does anyone else find it curious that Joe Biden, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi and Llew Jones all seemed to manage a sweet deal for their children?  Kind of odd that they are all Democrats and Llew Jones is a Republican., don’t you think?

Here is something else that I find to be notable.  Our friend Llew Jones, a Republican, was appointed to the Montana Wheat and Barley Board by Governor Steve Bullock, a Democrat.

Only a week prior, Bullock appointed Jones to the Montana University System Restructuring Review Commission.

Does this mean Jones and Bullock are drinking buddies, or was this a case of our fine Governor repaying Llew for all of his hard work with Medicaid Expansion?  You can be the judge of that.

As stated earlier, the instances outlined above could constitute the tip of the iceberg.  That being said, as far as I know Llew Jones has not been accused of, nor been convicted of, any crimes to date.  But then again, neither has Joe or Hunter Biden.

The idea of compromise sounds good, until you realize that the thing you compromised were your core values.

 

 

james white               Excellence in Voting Radio               October 1, 2019

 

 

In the most recent Montana legislative session, which ended in April of this year, the push for Medicaid expansion was one of the most contested and controversial battles to surface throughout.

A core of Republican legislators, called the “38 Special,” whose goals were to adhere to the Republican platform, locked horns with not only the Democrats, but a group of Republican legislators who routinely sought compromise with Democrats and called themselves the “Solutions Caucus.”

The Solution Caucus was led by long-time political operative, and legendary backroom deal-maker, Llew Jones of Conrad, Montana.

Jones didn’t act alone, however, in the crafting and promotion of Medicaid expansion.  He was assisted by long-time ally and backroom deal-maker protege, Ed Buttrey of Great Falls, Montana.

HB 658, also known as “Buttrey Care,” was the culmination of hours of behind-the-scenes deal-making from the so-called “Solutions Caucus” and those in the medical industry who pushed hard for the bill.  Despite the efforts of “38 Special,” Democrat Governor, Steve Bullock signed Medicaid expansion into law on May 9. 2019.

I have included a link HERE if you wish to visit the Montana Legislative website and survey the entire legislative process involved in the passage of Medicaid expansion.

Montana Legislator, Derek Skees is a member of the aforementioned, “38 Special” group who battled against Buttrey Care throughout the legislative session. Representative Skees contacted me recently with some disturbing information that has not, to my knowledge, been widely reported in the Montana press.

Derek informed me that Buttrey Care now pays for abortions and transgender sex-change operations.

Did you hear that Republican voters?  Those “Republican” representatives you voted for to go to Helena and represent your core values, including Right to Life, sold you out in backroom deals with Llew Jones and his “Solutions Caucus.”

Essentially, if you voted for any of the so-called Republican legislators in 2018 who are listed below, you have the blood of aborted babies on your hands.  I bet that wasn’t a “solution” you bargained for.

Fred Anderson – Ross Fitzgerald – Nancy Balance – Joel Krautter

Walt Sales – David Bedey – Denley Loge – Ray Shaw – Frank Garner

Sharon Greef – Bruce Grubbs – Wendy McKamey – Edward Buttrey

Frederic (Eric) Moore – Geraldine Custer – Kenneth Holmlund

Mike Hopkins – Tom Welch – Llew Jones

 

Montana Representative, Derek Skees joined me recently to explain the finer details of the recently signed HB 658 and to illustrate the dangers of having “deal-makers” within the Montana Legislature.

David Dunn is a very nice fellow; who anyone with a normal worldview would be hard pressed not to like.

However, that’s not the reason you should be delighted that David Dunn has decided to become a servant of the people of Montana.

You should be delighted that David serves the public because he’s smart, and because he knows the elements for successful leadership.

David was elected to office for the first time in 2018, and his time in Helena opened his eyes to how things are really run in Montana.

David graciously accepted an offer for an interview recently, the results of which are linked below.
