We use our land for hunting, fishing, hiking, and to create jobs. Our outdoor economy is a billion dollar economic engine for the state that creates jobs.
We have a duty to fight ISIS; air operations alone will not defeat ISIS.
I love Teddy Roosevelt... As a country, we need to think big again.
I'm an advocate for a full spectrum of energy policy, but we're never going to get there with solar cells that are going to power this country.
On the House side, when Donald Trump came, he received multiple standing ovations.
My heart is heavy for the people of Paris, Beirut, and other nations affected by ISIS terrorists.
To me, there is no doubt: inaction abroad emboldens actions on the home front. They are related.
In the case of the Syrian refugees, most of them are male. Most of them are of military age, and yes, it is a significant security issue in that a background check is only as good as the authorities have information on them.
Our military sons and daughters that are placed in harm's way deserve the right equipment, the right training, and the right rules of engagement to win decisively on any field of battle.
If you find a node that you can penetrate, that you can eliminate, and draw more information for future operations, I think it's prudent to do.
I think the soft underbelly of Russia is - what's driving their ability to be aggressive is their energy. If you take the energy out of their economy, Russia is not so strong.
I think the troops deserve the best equipment on the battlefield, the best training, and American armor if they get in trouble.
We need to make sure these Islamic terrorist organizations don't become mainstream. We're fighting an ideology as much as a group of radical terrorists.
If you put our guys in harm's way, you better support them with the right equipment, the right rules of engagement, the right Medevac, the right quick-reaction force.
I will work tirelessly to ensure our public lands are managed and preserved in a way that benefits everyone for generations to come.
As a president, we need a businessman who understands that business is not usual - someone who's not going to put up with business as usual in Washington, D.C. Having a businessman who's not going to put up with business as usual in Washington, D.C., is exactly what we need.
In the exodus out of Iraq, we're seeing the effects of just leaving. We left before there was control of chemical weapons stockpiles, without a status-of-forces agreement. We left before the Sunni and Kurds we fought with and fought alongside with were stable, or without empowering them. We left on a political rhetoric.
May God bless Montana, God bless America, and God bless the troops who defend her.
Under our rules of engagement, if I were ISIS, what I would do is collocate my headquarters next to a school or a hospital and ensure that there would be collateral damage. They know our rules of engagement as well as we do. They operate with impunity.
The right rules of engagement means giving our forward commanders the authority and flexibility to take the initiative and win. Trust our forward deployed warriors to do their job. Political appointees running the war from Washington is just wrong.
Americans don't want to see our military become Republican or Democrat. Americans appreciate that our military belongs to all of us.
I have always been a strong supporter of public lands and have voted against the transfer or sale of public lands. My position is known and well-established.
Special ops isn't the answer to everything. Special ops is not the main guard.
If ISIS strikes, it's going to strike Americans - not Republicans or Democrats. This is not partisan politics.
Technology certainly is going faster. Dynamics on the battlefield are faster. And so, I think you do need, you know, a warrior that is adept in technology, you know, certainly skilled.
I believe in the value of life. I believe we must prepare our children for tomorrow with the family values of my grandparents.
I've been to war, and I know the consequences and sacrifice it takes. If we must fight, we fight to win.
The status quo is not working, and I believe that Donald Trump is going to be a phenomenal president.
We've walked away from our treaty obligations in Ukraine, putting NATO at risk.
To be a Navy SEAL, it's three and a half years training before you're ever put into harm's way the first time.
America is smarter than the politicians. America is demanding a change and not more of the same cronyism, not more of the same deception, corruption, and business. Washington, D.C., needs to be shaken up.
If you get the government off our back, there's no economy in the world that can create more jobs in the long-term for everybody.
Gen. Mattis is a warrior. What I appreciate about Gen. Mattis is he understands the principle that if you go to war, you go to war to win.
The federal government needs to do a much better job of managing our resources, but the sale or transfer of our land is an extreme proposal, and I won't tolerate it.
The Democrats are besides themselves because they don't understand Trump. They don't understand: you don't get between the American people - because Americans are upset.
My wife, she was an early-adopter to Trump and a supporter of Trump - earlier than me, by far.
When a recruiter first told me about the Navy SEALs, I knew it was the right fit.
In my experience, given how large the border is and given how many people are coming across the border, I mean, look, if a child can come across the border, and we know there's hundreds of thousands of children that have, then what makes you think that ISIS and terrorists can't?
The United States should have stepped up and destroyed ISIS at its origins rather than wait until ISIS grew their capabilities and influence.
As a former Commander, I gave an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. As a state senator, I gave that same oath. As a Congressman, I gave an oath to defend the Constitution. There are some things that are not negotiable: Faith, my family, and the Constitution are dead center. It is nonnegotiable to me.
We say to those few who seek to publicize anti-Semitic views that they shall find no safe haven here.
The ability to reach a catastrophic forest fire quickly can not only save millions in fire suppression costs, it can save structures and, most importantly, lives.
When you have a script where we say we are just going to do air operations alone within the territory of Iraq, what happens is the forces then that we want to target will move their forces, colocate with hospitals, schools, embed themselves to be very, very difficult to conduct air operations against.
Whether you're a man or a woman, you should get the same degree of healthcare from our VA.
Too many of Montana's own have fallen in the line of duty fighting radical Islamic terrorists, like 31-year-old husband and father of four, Blackfeet warrior Army Corporal Tony 'Many Hides' of Great Falls.
Canada has as much or more control of the border than we do. Getting into Mexico is a lot easier than getting into Canada.
I was making Molotov cocktails long before I knew the name for them.
