If you're like me, you've often wondered: How do so many politicians strike it rich when they only make a salary? Well, a seasoned politician in Montana has provided the answer. Aspiring Democratic presidential candidate and former Governor, Brian Schweitzer, is showing us exactly how to get rich without breaking a sweat. While in office, Schweitzer apparently saw promise in the mining business... and he decided to join the fun. Soon after leaving the Governor's mansion, he targeted Montana's largest mining company, Stillwater Mining Company (SWC), which produces palladium and platinum. Schweitzer launched a massive propaganda campaign against Stillwater, claiming mismanagement by the Stillwater Board of Directors and, specifically, their longtime CEO, Frank McAllister. Schweitzer teamed up with a New York hedge fund, the Clinton Group, and - through public denouncements and intimidation - forced the Board of Directors to fire McAllister. By then, Schweitzer was unemployed, and he became part-time Chairma ...

Here is the text of the TIME article: The Montana Governor hopes to pose a serious challenge to Clinton’s nomination If you want to get former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer talking, take him out riding a paint horse named Yukon up the foothills of the state’s Anaconda Range, through lodgepole forests to a place so wide open and silent you can see for 30 miles and hear the next horse breathe at 20 paces. This is where he was raised, nearly two miles above sea level, and where he still lives, over dirt packed with silver, copper and sapphire, and grass that feeds some of the priciest pure-bred stock in the world. If Schweitzer runs for President in 2016, as he has been hinting in recent months, this is the country he will be angling to leave behind for an Oval Office literally built on a swamp. That’s a problem Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and the rest need not fret over. “If I win, I have the most to lose,” he says, turning his speckled horse to take in the view, with the snow-capped Pintlers t ...

Mr. Schweitzer had written an article about how dangerous it was to have a presidential candidate tied to and thus beholding to big business, banks, big Pharma etc. Well Okay It's time for Elizabeth Warren!

Why Brian Schweitzer Has Already Lost via because he's an a$$hole?
Has the Pipeline already been OKed despite all the negativity from the public? Has Our President already made up his mind? This just sent to me by my friend in Delaware: Magy, I just saw an interview with your former governor on the Ed Show, he is supporting the pipeline and says the pipeline is already approved in each state. The only sticking point is the border crossing (between Canada & the US). He says no matter what people think the pipeline will be approved. If the border crossing is not approved they will truck the tar sands across the border to the pipeline. Try to catch the interview, I was speechless. Much respect for your former governor Brian Schweitzer.
THANK YOU for so clearly SPEAKING OUT on this very important issue on which Ed Schultz & Brian Schweitzer are DEAD WRONG
Brian Schweitzer is LYING. Venezuela oil is non-bituminous. Canadian tar sands oil is Bitimun. NOT the same!

e-Election in 2014 Can the party keep their majority? By Dustin Hawkins There are 21 US Senate seats up for re-election in 2014 that are currently held by Democrats, with more than half of those being vulnerable. These seats were won during the 2008 sweep year when President Barack Obama brought millions of new first time voters to the polls, and helping many of the down-ticket candidates along the way. While the Republicans are defending 14 seats in mostly conservative states, Democrats are defending a mixture of liberal, moderate, and conservative seats. The GOP would need to swing 6 seats to take control of the US Senate Likely Safe Democratic Seats There are nine seats that will probably stay safely in Democratic hands: Delaware - Chris *** Illinois - Richard Durbin; Massachusetts 2013 Special Election - Open; Hawaii - Special Election; New Jersey - Frank Lautenberg (Retiring); New Mexico - Tom Udall; Oregon - Jeff Merkley; Rhode Island - Jack Reed; Virginia - Mark Warner.

Scanned from the front page of "The Missoulian" newspaper, Jan. 22, 2010, this article was too old for me to find a link. It remains a great source of pride to me. There are two factual errors, however. It resided not in the Governor's Mansion, but in the Native American Conference Room in the Montana Governor's suite of offices, under Brian Schweitzer. Secondly, the $ 3000.00 donation was split between the Native Warriors' Society, to help offset the cost of maintaining the graves of fallen Native soldiers, and The Louie Atlee Memorial Fund, where it was used to help in the creation of a Winter gathering place for guests of the Salish-Kootenai Confederation. The title of my piece is "Home of the Brave".

guy on TV said who can beat Hilary? I can tell you former Gov brian Schweitzer. Because Hilary is a loser canidate, if she managed to steal the DNC nomination then get ready to watch Blue states go red regardless to the knuckle dragging mouth breathing tea-bagger the Re-thugtard nominate.
So, should Hillary be the Democratic nominee in 2016 (which, I am on board thinking that she almost certainly will be) who do you think her Veep pick will be? I think it's really between two top contenders with a few others as maybes. Top of the list are Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia and Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio. Second tier would be Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri (who is only in the second tier and not the top because apparently there's no love lost between those two) and Gov. Martin O'Malley of Maryland. Third tier would be the once and future Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida and (if he plays his cards right) Fmr. Gov. Brian Schweitzer of Montana. Anyone got another maybes? Don't say Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, she has no interest in it as she will have more ability to do her progressive stuff right in the Senate than as Veep.

Lawrence O'Donnell last night was questioning why Gov. Brian Schweitzer was in Iowa questioning Hillary's support for the Iraq War. Good question, but Karen Finney's answer was pure Hillary spin. Anyone who hopes that Iraq is "old news" still has to explain Hillary's unexplainable support for the wars in Afghanistan and Libya, her demand for a missile strike on Syria and her general support for the unwinnable unaffordable wars of the last decade. Votes in the peace state of Iowa will want answers. Equally important is her embrace of Wall Street at a time when most Democratic voters are demanding an alternative to economic inequality. The question is why she is in disagreement with a majority of her Democratic base?

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer and the Democratic Future National Review: Mark my words: if Brian Schweitzer runs for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, he will do exceptionally well. Michael Warren’s profile of Schweitzer in the Weekly Standard helps illustrate why. Consider that though Howard Dean was widely regarded as a moderate governor of Vermont, his forceful opposition to the Iraq War helped him vault to prominence as a champion of the Democratic left. Schweitzer has moderate bona fides as well — his defense of gun rights, his entrepreneurial bent, the emphasis he placed on tax cuts and spending restraint as governor — yet he is also a populist who championed causes like the re-importation of prescription drugs from Canada. The reason I think Schweitzer could shake up the race is that, as Warren notes, he has been a consistent critic of Obamacare from the left: So what are Schweitzer’s progressive bona fides? For one thing, he has no patience for Democratic third way-ism ...

This man, hopefully, if he manages to win, will stand up for our rights and get America off the brink of going bankrupt.
Brian Schweitzer, former governor of Montana, “If you’ve run a business, like I have, if you’ve run a state, like I have, then you like to get things done. I get up at 4:30, 5:00 in the morning, and I decide, ‘What can we do right now, today, to change the world?’ and then you can start doing things to make that come true.”

I need to stop getting my hopes up about Politicians. Brian Schweitzer (D-Montana) was getting pushed at me by the Weekly Standard as "fiscally conservative and socially liberal," and though I disagree with him on a few of the things they outlined, they were issues I'm willing to live with after a little bit of debate. However, no. I'm not looking him up. No. Because seriously, even if he were awesome sauce incarnate, 2016 is a long way off.

US Senate Candidate John Bohlinger Introduces Montana Constitutional Amendment to Protect Digital Privacy HELENA - On World Human Rights Day, former Lt. Governor John Bohlinger introduced a Montana Constitutional Amendment to protect the Right of Digital Privacy. "I believe there is a threat to the civil rights of all Americans from the NSA’s sweeping warrantless invasion of our telephone and internet data," Bohlinger said at a press conference in front of the Secretary of State's office. "Therefore today, I have launched a citizens’ initiative to amend the Montana Constitution to explicitly prohibit warrantless governmental intrusion into our telephone and internet communications." The citizens' initiative would add 35 words to Montana's Constitution expand our current protections for paper documents and communication to digital documents and communication. "It would shock us to the core if we learned that the United States Postal Service was keeping track of who we write, or that they were steaming ...

Formidable Democrats are in the wings if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decides not to seek the party's nomination for president in 2016, says Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Daily Beast. In addition to the obvious — Vice President Joe Biden — they include New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, Jacobs told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. I'm going to be checking into each of them to see what I can learn.

BARRY BEACH TRIES FOR CLEMENCY, AGAIN (from Montana Cowgirl blog - 29 Sept. 2013) Barry Beach, serving a 100 year prison sentence with no possibility of parole, has applied to the Montana Board of Pardons for clemency. If he gets what he wants then the Board will recommend to Governor Bullock that Beach be made eligible for release, having now served 30 years in prison for a 1983 crime he says he did not commit. Bullock could then accept or reject the recommendation. An all-star lineup of politicians has written letters on Beach’s behalf including Conrad Burns, John Tester, Brian Schweitzer and John Bohlinger. Bullock’s duty as Attorney General was to argue in support of Beach’s conviction, but that doesn’t preclude him from now allowing Beach to be paroled. But this is all assuming that the Board gives Beach a favorable ruling. If the Board turns Beach down then it’s the end of the line for Barry. He will live out the rest of his life in prison unless he lives to the age of 118. In 2011, a ...
