FROMBERG — As Fromberg residents worked to clear the muck and river water from their homes Thursday, a FEMA spokesperson said people should manage their expectations about federal aid. “If you’re waiting for the federal government or somebody else to help you that help may or may not come, and I’m not sure when it will come,” FEMA spokesperson Leo Skinner said Thursday in Stillwater County. “So I always tell people, this is a tough line to tell people, ‘Take responsibility for your own disaster recovery.’” On Thursday, Gov. Greg Gianforte requested President Joe Biden activate the FEMA Individual Assistance


FEMA's maps say there are not in a flood zone so flood insurance would not be needed. So FEMA won't provide even 2 ¢ of assistance.

A conservative state, populated mostly by white folks.....gets the middle finger from FEMA. Meanwhile, in other, leftist and not-so-white states, things are very different.

Montana not a hot destination for minority illegals or state could claim aid needed for them. Dang FEMA has plenty of money to pour into the trash from all over the world pouring across the TX and AZ border with MX. Taxpayers paying nonstop for all their health care too.

a Thousand headlines calling it a once in 1000year disaster...FEMA sez..."uhm, not so fast". Note as well...much of the damage was from outflow from Federal lands, carrying thousands of downed trees, causing worse flooding, tearing out bridges, wiping out fences, while Federal Regulatory agencies had stopped any local residents, govts and citizens from streambank improvements, impoundments, flood control projects

My experience with FEMA, after being hit by a hurricane in Florida in August 2004, is that if you have insurance, the only thing FEMA wants is your information for their records, I guess. I do, however, wonder why it is the taxpayers' responsibility to cover damages in most disasters. Really, that is why you have homeowner's insurance. So we really don't need FEMA.

Well, since fema’s primary existence is for disaster relief then we should just get rid of them. They are wasting money by not doing their job. We could get rid of the department of education too. Quality education in this country has been going down hill since the doe was created in the early 70s. Note: I use lower case on purpose.

MINNEAPOLIS - Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor was released from prison on Monday morning after serving just over three years for the death of 911 caller Justine Damond Ruszczyk. Noor shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond in July 2017 after she had called police to report a possible sexual assault behind her home. When Damond approached the squad in the alleyway near her home, Noor shot across his partner, killing the 40-year-old Australian woman. During his trial, Noor said he had feared an ambush. He was initially convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Damond’s death and sentenced

Fox News political analyst Juan Williams is ridiculously claiming that Hillary Clinton can save the Democrats from a bloodbath in the 2022 midterms by carping about women’s rights after SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade. In a fevered, hallucinatory political wet dream, Williams evidently believes that Clinton is still the savior of the Democratic Party. In May, before the leak of the ruling by the Supreme Court surfaced, Clinton warned CBS News that rescinding the constitutional right to abortion “is incredibly dangerous and it is not just about a woman’s right to choose. It is about much more than that.” “Any American who says, ‘Look, I’m not a woman, this doesn’t affect me.
