Dan Happel joins radicals who help elect Democrats

by Dr. Ed Berry

Privately, I learned Dan Happel and some of his friends don’t like the articles I wrote about him. One email sent to me could be deemed a threat. No one has contradicted the facts I presented.

Were Dan Happel not a candidate for MT GOP chairman, I would not have written the articles. My articles have only one purpose: to warn Republicans of the threat they face in tomorrow’s election of a Chairman of the Montana Republican Party.

Facts show Dan Happel has joined with friends who help elect Democrats.

Happel’s spoken and written words make it clear he wants to give his friends more power in Montana’s Republican Party.

Below are videos of three of Dan Happel’s speeches on Agenda 21. I understand the problems with Agenda 21. I published Tom DeWeese’s articles about Agenda 21. But Agenda 21 problems and other problems conservatives have with our government do not justify becoming a right-wing radical nutcase who rejects Republican candidates and helps elect Democrats.

The fourth video is the trailer for Oath Keepers new movie Midnight Ride. Dan Happel joined this movie with Stewart Rhodes and Chuck Baldwin. The movie proposes Oath Keepers will save America’s economy by controlling State Militias, which is surely a joke.

The fifth video shows Stewart Rhodes preaching to his 40,000 Oath Keepers that if they vote for Mitt Romney, they will be “oath breakers.”

And here are statements by Dan Happel’s friends that show his candidacy for MT GOP chairman is a threat to the Montana Republican Party:

On November 6, 2012, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes wrote:

“Today, on election day, Denny Rehberg deserves to go down in flames just like Conrad Burns did in 2006.”

In 2012, Stewart Rhodes preached to his Oath Keepers (see video below):

“Romney is an oath breaking traitor. You vote for him, or support him, you become one too.”

In 2012, Oath Keepers National Chaplain Pastor Chuck Baldwin wrote:

“… the differences between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are miniscule.”

“… a Romney-Ryan administration will do nothing to change the downward spiral of the nation. They will continue the fanatical interventionist, preemptive war policies of Obama and Bush. They will also continue to build and construct the Orwellian domestic Police State …”

In 2014, Chuck Baldwin wrote “Ryan Zinke: The Greater Evil:

“Again, if you want to use the hackneyed cliché that we must vote for ‘the lesser of two evils,’ then the Democrat John Lewis is your man, because Ryan Zinke–like the rest of these big-government, pro-war, pro-Police State Neocon Republicans–is definitely the GREATER EVIL.”

“As for me, I don’t vote for ‘the lesser of two evils.’ But, I can tell you this: the Republican Ryan Zinke scares me a whole lot more than the Democrat John Lewis. And that’s a fact.”

Here’s my rebuttal to Chuck Baldwin in defense of Ryan Zinke.

Here are the five videos:

Dan Happel tells how everything is tied to Agenda 21. But he joins with Oath Keepers (below) who help elect Democrats.


Dan Happel claims Jesuits promote Agenda 21 and Sustainable Communism.

Dan Happel joins with Pastor Charles Dowell to discuss the destruction of America.


Happel joins his Oath Keepers friends in this moronic movie.

Movie claims Oath Keepers will revive America’s Militias and thereby save America’s economy. Happel’s comrades include Oath Keepers Founder and Executive Director Stewart Rhodes and Oath Keepers National Chaplain Chuck Baldwin.

Rhodes and Baldwin helped elect Barack Obama and other Democrats, and preach against conservative “principles.” They are not “constitutionalists.”

The movie was “inspired” by Edwin Vieira, Jr.’s book, “By Tyranny out of Necessity: The Bastardy of Martial Law,” that relates martial law to the Second Amendment and militia clauses in the U.S. Constitution.  But Vieira is against using Article V of our Constitution.

The movie includes far-right radicals G. Edward Griffin who claims government chemtrails poison Americans, Larry Pratt of “Gun Owners of America,” Tea Party founder Walter Reddy, Ron Paul, and Ron Paul activist Rosie Haas.


Stewart Rhodes tells his 40,000 Oath Keepers they will be “oath breakers” if they vote for Mitt Romney. He helped elect Obama.

  1. Ed, can you please give it a rest now that we have elected Jeff Essman? It was Mr. Happel's (YES Mr. Happel's) collation that compromised with Rep. Essman to elect him Chairman. But you weren't there and did not participate in the process. You never participate. You only armchair quarterback with partial truths. The state party took GREAT strides this past weekend. But you wouldn't know.

  2. @1 Dear Glenn, I made it clear that my only reason for this and related posts was to encourage the election of either Will or Jeff. The election is now over and I am done with this subject. I have no personal grudge against Dan, although some people interpreted my posts that way.

    It was a good meeting. I am happy you attended. Good people made a rule change before the election. The new rule was to eliminate the candidate with the least votes in the first election, and that turned out to be Will. Then Jeff and Dan squared off in the final election, and Jeff won.

    Actually, this is the most fair way to run an election when there are more than two candidates. Ideally, our primary elections should use a similar process, although it may be impractical.

    Glenn, why should I travel to Helena when I have no vote? No one needed me there, whereas I was needed at home. The participants did a good job. Jeff is a good choice. I'm happy. Are you happy?
