Russell Fagg speaks to a room full of dudes. Calls it Missoula County Republican Women

Here at the Cowgirl Blog we often spend a lot of time cramming as many snarky words into a post as possible.  But this time, a picture is worth a thousand words:


Just like the amount of ladies in attendance at his lady outreach event, Russell Fagg’s campaign just continues to underwhelm.

  1. So… wives should not invite husbands to events that their group sponsors? That’s mighty inclusive of you. By that, I mean unabashedly sexist. I guess that means that it’s perfectly okay for men to have clubs that exclude women. Oh wait- I forgot- what’s good for the goose is not good for the gander.
    Let’s not hear any future commentary about the Right being divisive- the Left OWNS identity politics.

  2. PS: Glad to hear you admit that you try to cram snarky comments into your blog; that is an admission that you are engaged in rhetoric, rather than rational dialectic. Thus you should have no complaints when rhetoric is returned in kind.

  3. Entertaining post, Montana Hat, but I have trouble with the headline. Shouldn’t it be ” …speaks to a few dudes?”

  4. Is it possible to screen comments? Margerie seems to get a blast out of hijacking this site, and it’s impossible to engage in real debate and conversation without his/her petty rants.

  5. In my humble opinion, Cowgirl, it’s time to ban “Margerie,” and I don’t take banning or blocking lightly. If “she” added something new or interesting to the debate, that would be one thing but Margerie is nothing but a ranting Breitbart troll with no redeeming attributes.

    • There you go- dismiss my comments because I don’t fall in lockstep with Leftist orthodoxy. Label me a troll because I don’t simply say “amen” to and lay down for socialist talking points. Ban me so that you don’t have to read critical assessments of the childish, irrational, divisive, mendacious tripe that is posted here. If you don’t take banning lightly, why ban me? Profanity? There’s been none, except that directed at me. Incitement to violence? None. This group has already tried to intimidate me with the usual epithets-racist, bigot, fascist- all without justification, but then again that’s what SJWs do. No, banning is the last resort of the SJW to prevent anyone from having to read “wrongthink”, when it’s clear that the speaker won’t be cowed by standard rhetoric, and when the arguments being made are the uncomfortable truth. Free speech is fine, so long as it’s yours.

        SJW? Gosh, although I am a retired Warrior I never considered myself a “social Justice” warrior. I fought to protect and defend our Constitution and our democracy. If attempting to make “all men are created equal” more than simply a falling-star-wish I guess I am an SJW. If trying to achieve true “One Man/One Vote” include women in America, then I’m a SJW. I’d rather be one of those than be morally and intellectually bankrupt. Like the “conservatives” like you doing Putin’s work for him. Why do I feel like a “ni**ers, kikes and wetbacks” rant is imminent every time I see one of your posts? Why do I hear echoes of “Zieg Heil” in your rants?

  6. If this is the best you can do, then bye, bye Tester. This will be a cake walk for Mr. Fagg. I will be wait to see what Mr. Tester says what he has done for MT and will do if elected. At least a republican voice will be heard and counted. Jobs, Forest Management, beef exports, beef processing plant, tax cuts, health care, coal, etc. I am listening Dems. What is your platform?

  7. Bullet, you are dreaming.

    But at least you make some semblance of sense unlike the Margester.

    I encourage everyone who posts there to post as Margerie.

  8. Maybe MCRW practice polyandry since there are more husbands than wives…

  9. Wow, that’s an impressive crowd. I remember having that many people in a VW bug one time. I’m sure Tester is shaking in his boots.

    I may be one like many others who receive Cowgirl in my e-mail. This site is one of many of varied sources which help me understand the happenings of our state, nation and world. I happen to not see most issues in black/white but various shades of grey. For example, in the past general election I found that I could vote for neither Ms Clinton or Mr Trump. I usually enjoy receiving and digesting more than one viewpoint on a topic. However, it appears that Margerie and some on the other side of the spectrum are succeeding at their apparent goal of turning reasonable people away from this site. Put downs of others and saying in 100 words that can be said in 10 words is not appropriate. I assume my writing this will only encourage more of the same.

    • “Put downs of others and saying in 100 words that can be said in 10 words is not appropriate.” I assert that you’ve just described the routine content pushed out by Cowgirl; name calling, lies, and innuendo directed at Republicans is part-and-parcel of what this site does. Why is that “appropriate?”
      Thanks for not voting!

    • Dan, right on. You seek more than black/white binary information. You look for shades of grey. 100 word putdowns not OK.
      Right on again. You said what had to be said knowing your posting will only bring on more of the same.

  11. Dan, thanks for your honesty. So, can you vote for Tester who votes “No” on everything like Pelosi, Schumer, and Company?

  12. I see Tester as one who respesents Montana farmer/ranchers pretty well. We certainly need a few advocates in congress.

  13. What has Tester/Obama done for ag in MT in the last 8 years? Support regulatory overreach under the Obama Administration. And now in a few months we have seen markets opened for $300 mil ($200 mil from Mt)beef exports to china and a $100 mil meat processing plant?

    CHICAGO, Oct 17 (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in a filing on Tuesday said it will dismantle Obama-era rules for buying and selling livestock.

    • boB AKA @Gyrogyrloose | November 18, 2017 4:01 PM at 4:01 PM |

      Now when that livestock starts being shipped to China, the big deals you cite have a lot of “might” qualifiers and are a trade-off to make it impossible for us to refuse pork or poultry raised in China on poisoned feed etc. Could any of our closed lumber mills have anything to do with shipping raw timber to China and Japan? Would you care to make a bet on whether our trade deficit grows or shrinks in the next 3 years? I’ll put $20 on grows-A LOT! Anyway, GOP runs all three branches now, have for a year. What have they done for you? I know what they have done TO ME as a veteran, but what have they done for YOU?

      • Good point Bob AKA, and thanks for all you and Obama have accomplished as you have noted above. Now it is nice to see things changing for the better. Oh and don’t forget the lowest increase in Social Security in history. Another first for you guys.

  14. Keystone pipeline Montana Property Tax $29 Mill every year. How many years did you and Obama stall this? Montana budget crisis, $79 Mil, so you are for jobs? How many jobs did this budget cost?

  15. I’m glad that Tester has a serious challenger.

    Mainly because the Dems (The Party of the Rich) have already pumped 6 million dollars into re-electing him, and a real challenger will motivate them into putting almost all of their resources into his race, and help the GOP build a veto-proof majority in Helena, which we need until Bullock is gone and Gov Fox takes over.

    They did the same thing a few cycles ago, when the put everything they had going after Roy Brown, and lost numbers in the legislature big time.

    • The original Art Fenske (yep there seem to be two of us posting here) | November 19, 2017 6:25 PM at 6:25 PM |

      “I’m glad that Tester has a serious challenger.”

      And who is the serious challenger? The guy who bought numerous hunting licenses illegally or the Judge who ran a shadow campaign that is illegal under Montana law?

  16. The Trump administration does not care about protecting agriculture. After being in office only a month, he rescinded the Stream Protection Rule. Now he’s on the move to undo the Waters of the U.S. Rule. The Stream Protection Rule would have protected surface waters relied on for farming and ranching from coal mining and other sources of pollution. The Waters of the U.S. rule protects wetlands that are critical to filtering pollutants from our waterways, and protects ephemeral streams that are important sources of clean water for farming and ranching. The Trump administration is now proposing the undo the Waters of The U.S. Rule based on myths that the rule will harm agriculture. I know many farmers and ranchers in Montana who oppose these moves, which are only being done as favors to big corporate polluters.

  17. Counterpoint? A cancerous system? Are environmental organizations preying on citizens to pad their wallets and politicians pandering votes based on emotions and fear? Be dammed common sense, jobs, and our economy.

    News Nation “The stream protection rule is really just a thinly veiled attempt to wipe out coal mining jobs,” Ryan, R-Wis., said.
    “The Department of Interior’s own reports show that mines are safe and the surrounding environment is well-protected,” Ryan said, adding that the stream-protection rule ignores dozens of federal, state and local regulations already in place.

    Montana’s Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat, voted in favor of the Obama policy, issued last December, which he framed as promoting clean water. There was no mention of coal mining in a statement Tester issued after the early evening vote.

    • Amen, Bullet. Brendini’s last sentence gives away his real beef; that “big corporate polluters” would benefit. One wonders if he’d be okay with small corporate polluters getting a break, or big socialist polluters? Seriously, do you really think that the men and women who work in corporations don’t give a damn about conservation? That they don’t appreciate clean water?

  18. These energy corporations either go out of business(golden parachutes) and/or roll the added ridiculous added regulations costs to the consumers via increased electric and heating costs and who does it hurt the most? Large corporate management, no; environmental organizational management, no; the poor, yes. Thanks dummies…..lets dump on the poor some more.

    The Sierra Club’s annual budget was $88 million in 2011 and $100 million in 2012.[74] In 2013, the group’s budget was $97.8 million.[1]

    In February 2012, it was reported that the Sierra Club had secretly accepted over $26 million in gifts from the natural gas industry, mostly from Aubrey McClendon, CEO of Chesapeake Energy.[75] The Sierra Club used the Chesapeake Energy money for its Beyond Coal campaign to block new coal-fired power plants and close old ones. Michael Brune reported that he learned of the gifts after he succeeded Carl Pope as executive director of the Sierra Club in 2010. Brune reported that he ended the financial agreement with natural gas industry interests.[33]
    In 2014, the Energy and Environment Legal Institute filed a referral with the Internal Revenue Service pointing out that Sierra Club and Sierra Club Foundation were not paying income taxes from sales of solar panels for their partners across the US.[76]
    The Sierra Club has an affiliated super PAC. It spent $1,000,575 on the 2014 elections, all of it opposing Republican candidates for office.[77] The Sierra Club is a partner of America Votes, an organization that coordinates and promotes progressive issues.[78]
    Donors to the Sierra Club have included David Gelbaum, Michael Bloomberg, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.[79] The Sierra Club has also received funding from the Democracy Alliance and the Tides Foundation Advocacy Fund.[80][81]
    In 2015, a PR front group, known as the Environmental Policy Alliance, claimed that the Sierra Club and other U.S. environmental groups received funding from groups with ties to Russia’s state-owned oil company.[82]

  19. I have a comment. When I was 15 years old/ now 50. I worked as a page in the House of Representatives for 1 week under a special school program. Mr Fagg’s father Harrison Fagg,Sr pinched my ass every time I had to respond to a request from a fellow Republican. I complained to the Sergeant of Arms and was told to keep my mouth shut. Mr Fagg, you are a pedophile and I’m pretty sure the apple does not fall far from the tree. No I am not accusing Jr of sexual harassment but I believe that the mindset is just as dangerous. Yes Mr Fagg, I AM CALLING YOUR FATHER OUT for what he was. Hopefully he’s too old now to hurt anymore girls.
