Reply from Senator Baucus

Dear Robby:

Thank you for contacting me about S. 968, the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011, called PROTECT IP or PIPA. The House of Representatives is considering similar legislation in H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). I appreciate hearing from you.

S. 968 has been introduced to prevent online theft of intellectual property. While the greatest threat of infringement is to the movie, music, and computer software industries, other sectors that face threats include clothing, pharmaceutical drugs, and consumer electronics. The PROTECT IP Act would give the Department of Justice authority to enforce copyright and trademark laws against foreign websites that offer unlicensed copies of protected content. Protection of intellectual property for rightful owners is something that I support; however, I have heard from many Montanans concerned about how this bill may affect Internet security and free speech.

The PROTECT IP Act was reported unanimously by the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 26, 2011 but faces hurdles before coming to the full Senate for a vote. Rest assured, I am carefully monitoring this legislation and will oppose any version of it that negatively affects Internet security or online innovation.

Thanks again for getting in touch. Please contact me with any additional comments or concerns. Also, please visit my website athttp://baucus.senate.govto view information on current issues and to find out what I'm doing both here in Washington and at home to help Montana.



Sounds like a go to hell message to me.  Here is my reply:

Thank you for the reply and I understand what you are saying. Please understand however the potential for abuse that this law creates. I'll not support any law that muzzles the Internet, freedom of speach or freedom of thought. The danger of censorship is to great and I am not alone in this. Thousands of Montanans like myself are against this. You yourself have stated that you have heard from many of us. Sir, I implore you to withdraw your support. Also please accept my thanks. I contacted Senator Tester and RepresenativeRehberg and your office is the onlyone who offered a reply. Your secratery was courtious and professional.

Thank you for your time,

Robby West

A Manifesto by Bob Fanning

Fanning-Baldwin 2012: A Manifesto. A Political Platform. A Declaration.

* on January 19th 2012, this was the closing statement made by Bob Fanning at the Governor Candidate Forum held at MSU, Bozeman *

I am Bob Fanning of Pray, Montana. I am running for Governor because I love Montana.

I am the only candidate who has a realistic, workable plan which will lead Montana to rapid economic progress and to independence from the Federal funds which have put Montana out of business.  I have the credentials to lead and restructure our state’s economy in today’s Federally-induced crisis. My 38 years of multifaceted financial experience and business leadership practices have built within me the diagnostic tools to understand, explain, and quantify exactly what caused the fraud-based mortgage crisis and other financial threats to Montana’s prosperity. 

Make no mistake about it, Montana – the satchel charges that were placed, that blew up America’s economy, were placed by the 106thCongress.

Because those threats are coming from Wall Street and the Fed, I have a genuine plan to put Montanans back to work by removing Federal incursions which have impoverished our Counties and communities. I can open up Montana’s natural resources to development, industry, and jobs for Montanans by simply removing Federal blockages.

I am the only candidate who knows how and why to shut down the EPA, BLM, Forest Service, other Federal agencies and Departments, as well as the Department Of Justice enforcement groups such as DEA and ATF, and prevent their operation in Montana. I will use State interposition as Montana’s lawful answer to Federal corruption, and will faithfully and fully nullify (interpose to prevent) “Obama-Care” in Montana.

I will honor Montana’s medical marijuana referendum and protect the will of the people against Federal aggression. 

I am the only candidate who will create a system of sound money based on hard assets including silver and gold. 

I am the only candidate who is a proud member in Oath Keepers. I will prevent the Federal police state in Montana by shutting off State and County relations with the Fusion Centers of the Department of Homeland Security. My administration in Montana will break the interface between local peace officers and the U.S. military. 

I am the only candidate who proactively supports the Fully Informed Jury Association. 

I am the only candidate running with former Constitution Party 2008 Presidential candidate Dr. Chuck Baldwin as partner candidate for the office of Lieutenant Governor of Montana. Our ticket reads: Fanning/Baldwin2012. Our website is 

I am a proud member in the Montana Shooting Sports Association. I am an avid 2nd Amendment advocate. I am the only candidate who will establish Montana’s Constitutional Militia, with an office in every County Commission to oversee and regulate militia development. I will support the authority of the County Sheriff by establishing a Montana office for the Constitutional Sheriffs And Peace Officers Association

I am the only candidate who will shut down the U.S. Department of Education in Montana and return our schools to local control with parallel support for Home Schooling. 
I am the only candidate who led the charge to de-list wolves in Montana and, as your Governor I will continue to diminish the wolf problem, rebuild Montana’s Elk and Moose populations while protecting farm animals, and insure Montana’s continued tradition of wild-game hunting. I am a strong believer in personal property rights of the individual as protected by the Montana and the Federal Constitutions.

I am the only candidate in the 2012 race who understands and vows to honor the Founders’ intent regarding the system of “dual sovereignty” preserved in the U.S. Constitution. I am the only candidate who understands how rebuilding Montana’s sovereignty under the Montana Constitution can free our people from Federal bondage.

I am the only candidate who will boot the United Nations’ Agenda 21 and related NGO detriments out of Montana. I will shut down ICLEI offices in Montana and expose the lies behind the UN’s use of the term “sustainable development”. I will boot the UN out of Montana.

I am the only candidate who knows how and why it is important to return personal responsibility and personal freedom to all Montanans. I believe Montanans can and will restore their once-proud independence and prosperity as my administration removes the Federal barriers and allows the bountiful treasure which is our birthright to once again flourish. I uphold Montana sovereignty.

I am the only candidate who has the courage and strength to get this done.

I am Bob Fanning of Pray, Montana. My creed is: 
Life. Land. Liberty.

Another betrayal by Republicans

I know you probably won't be surprised to hear that once again the Republican Party, that Grand Old Party, has once again betrayed the American people, the Tea Party, and our children.  President Obama has once again been handed a gift by those so-called "fiscal hawks" in Washington in the form of yet another increase in the debt ceiling.  1.2 TRILLION dollars in addition to the already out of control debt.  Where is the outrage from the tea Party?  Where is the outrage from those three so-called conservatives Romney, Gingrich, and Santorum?  Only Ron Paul has stood firm and said, "NO!"  Last summer we were facing financial Armageddon, an end to life as we know it, if the debt ceiling wasn't raised again.  Normal Americans like you and me (and by normal I mean folks who aren't millionaires) shouted from the rooftops, "No!".  The Repubicans once buckled and voted for the increase and slipped in two measures that reflect the total idiocy of Washington, DC and proves there ain't a nickles worth of difference between the Republicans and Democrates.  First the "Super Congress" idea came through with the promise that if they couldn't find common ground then the budget would be cut to the bone.  Guess what.  Shock of shocks not only was it a stupid idea, it was a total failure.  So where are those "to the bone" cuts?  If they are CUTTING anything, then why in the bloody hell are those same frauds in Washington voting to RAISE THE DEBT LIMIT?!  It's because there was never any intention of following through with the bill of lies they sold to the American people.  To add insult to injury a process was created to allow Republicans to vote against a debt increase without opposing it.  Read that again.  If you vote -against- something then doesn't that mean you oppose it?  Not in Washington and not if you're a Republican!  If your vote has zero meaning then why waste our tax dollars?  All this does is prove three points.  The politicians in Washington are perfectly fine with watching this country be destroyed by debit.  They will fiddle just like Emperor Nero did.  While Nero watched Rome burn, these politicians in Washington will watch the United States burn and our kids will pay the price.  Raising the debt ceiling will hasten the destruction of our currency via inflation and devaluation.  I challenge you to read about Kenya or about Germany after World War I.  Think it can't happen here?  Wake up, the process is already started.  Lastly, it is time for the States to take a stand.  It is not in the interest of the States to commit suicide with Washington.  It is time for the States to create central banks of their own like North Dakota has done and back those banks with hard money like gold, silver, and other precious metals and oil if available.  In closing I say this.  Times are going to get very hard very fast.  I highly recommend stocking up on food and water, and if you don't have a gun go get one.  You can thank me later.
