It appears there’ll be a super secret Democratic state meeting or semi-convention tomorrow, October 16, at the Sky Range Ranch just outside of Missoula.
From what I was able to glean from sources, this Montana Democratic stronghold is located at 8925 LaValle Creek Road, which puts it right here on the map:
Here’s an earth satellite image of the location, which gives you an idea of how remote and out of the way it is:
What we do know is who will be there, and it looks like this:
- Governor Steve Bullock;
- U.S. Senator Jon Tester;
- Commissioner of Securities Monica Lindeen;
- OPI Superintendent Denise Juneau;
- Secretary of State Linda McCulloch;
- Former U.S. Rep. Pat Williams;
- State Senator Cliff Larsen;
- State Senator Dick Barrett;
- State Senator Tom Facey;
- Rep. Bryce Bennett;
- Rep. Kimberly Dudik;
- Rep. Diane Sands;
- Missoula City Council members Marilyn Marler, Jason Weiner, and Emily Bentley;
- Missoula Mayor John Engen;
- MEA-MFT president Eric Feaver.
Damn, this is the big leagues, all the top brass, gathered together in one place. There’s also some miscellaneous candidates thrown in for good measure.
What could happen? What diabolical plots could they be un-hatching up there in the mountains, away from it all, on that secluded ranch? Dare you think about them lest you get no sleep tonight?
I don’t want to think about it myself…although I have a sneaking suspicion it’s all just an elaborate front, a cunning ruse and cover job for a John Lewis fundraiser.
I could be wrong, and this could be the secret meeting that seals our fate with Ebola in Montana, the rise of socialism, and the progressive takeover of your way of life so wolves can eat in restaurants and transients can sleep in the Mariott.
But something tells me that’d be Republican hysteria, paranoia, fear, and just plain ignorance speaking.
Perhaps what’s interesting is who’s not attending. There’s…well, I’m not going to speculate on it. And I also won’t speculate on the power and force that this group of folks would have if they, instead of standing around in an elaborate ranch retreat, instead had a meeting in Caras Park in Missoula.
Maybe not, I don’t know…they don’t know…who knows?
