Body Doubles, Fascism, and 9/11 Truthers. Why is the Montana GOP Legitimizing a Conspiracy Site?

Wonder if Hillary Clinton has nine body doubles? If the CIA killed the kids at Parkland High School to enact a nefarious gun control scheme? Whether Barack Obama was a fascist? If so, you’re probably a regular reader of a Montana blog that has been frequented by Montana Republicans like Steve Daines, Matt Rosendale and members of the Legislature.

Yesterday, I tweeted my frustration that legislators like Jennifer Fielder and Derek Skees were lending legitimacy to an anti-government, militia news outlet, Northwest Liberty News. I’ve simply never been able to understand why people like Skees and Fielder, much less State Auditor Matt Rosendale and Senator Steve Daines, have never been called to account for their support of a site that posts the most horrific conspiracy theories and anti-government content, especially in an era where those ideas have led to violence and even death.

After my tweet, the proprietor of Northwest Liberty News responded on Twitter, asking me to define what makes his site so dangerous:

While I haven’t had much time to look today, here are just a few of the pieces posted on a site patronized by leading Montana Republicans. I won’t link to the pieces but have pulled some key excerpts. Finding these posts took me about two minutes this morning and another half an hour after school today. They don’t include page after page of copious praise for the militia forces that occupied the Malheur Wildlife Refuge or repeated claims that the government and FBI murdered one of the occupiers and lied about it afterward.

And don’t even get me started on the YouTube videos, which most recently featured a pair of 9/11 truthers who claim that the government was behind the World Trade Center attack, that the income tax is unconstitutional, and the assertion that foster care is linked to human trafficking.

This site traffics in the worst kind of conspiracy thinking. I can’t know whether its proprietor believes the misinformation he spreads or, like Alex Jones, he is just engaging in some kind of bizarre performance for clicks, but the last thing that political leaders in the Republican Party should do is give credence to an outlet that spreads misinformation that increases hatred and fear of our government.

We should absolutely be skeptical of our government, but the content Northwest Liberty News publishes goes beyond skepticism to dangerous advocacy, and the Montana press should ask Daines, Rosendale, Skees, and Fielder if they should appear on the site.

A Sampling of Northwest Liberty News content follows.

Opposition to a ban on private ownership of machine guns is communist tyranny:

Seriously, we need more of this!  Lots more of this!  A US Senate candidate from Missouri has ruffled a lot of feather in both political parties, but for good reason and good cause after he called for “going on the offensive” and legalizing machine guns and repealing the National Firearms Act.

American producer, writer, political activist, and commentator Austin Petersen is fed up with hearing the whining from the little Communists and the big ones in our country as they attack our God-given rights and our Constitution.

The Killing of Students at Parkland High School was a CIA False Flag Operation

“The short memories of Americans is what keeps these false flag attacks moving forward.”

We’re seeing Facebook, YouTube, Twitter scrubbing the eye and ear witnesses as to what contradicted the CIA-controlled narrative when it came to what allegedly took place at Parkland High School in Florida.

And there is the CIA controlled media, who put these little protests together, gathered around the students in front of the school in Florida shouting in unison, “No more guns,” as well as the 30 students laying in front of the people’s White House, hoping that you believe that the rest of the 331 million in this country are all behind them, when the opposite is true.  The old Saul Alinsky tactic of,  “Cause the people to believe that there are more of us then there really is” we see clearly at work.

Or a False Flag Operation to let an undefined group take our guns

Russian Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin said, “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves,” and leading it they are in America today.

Leading through opposition simply means that if a tragedy is necessary to bring about a means to an end (more gun control), then they will bring it about themselves through False Flag attacks to lead people to the debating table for more gun control (Jeremiah 11:9).

The CIA controls the media

The established media, which is bought and paid for, as well as controlled by the CIA, and that 94% of the American people claim that they do not believe, tells them that another “Lone wolf” did the unthinkable. The criminal politicians then gather together only to never let a good “crisis go to waste.”

Hillary Clinton, George Soros, and ANTIFA ignored the fascism of Barack Obama and planned insurrection:

Somehow, I wonder where these people were when actual fascism was taking place from DC under the reign of Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah.  Oh, I know, they were in lock step with him.

However, now the Anti-Fascist fascists known as Antifa are letting American patriots know exactly where they will be gathering and what they are planning to do to incifte insurrection.

According to, the Soros and Hillary Clinton-funded Communists will be taking “To The Streets And Public Squares in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night—not stopping—until our DEMAND is met.”

Hillary Clinton Ran Her Campaign with A Series of Body Doubles

If you’ve never seen the film Dave with Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver, then you have missed out on a very funny comedy and also quite possibly a reality that never enters most of the public’s mind. That reality is body doubles. In recent days, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has come under scrutiny because of her health, but even more so because it would appear that body doubles have been substituted in her place.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
