The Oklahoma Republican Party is publicly critical of KFOR TV in Oklahoma City. The state leadership posted a strong statement listing the severe bias.Facebook then censored that post within 2 hours, without any explanation at all. The McCarville Report posted this research: The McCarville Report has sources linking Broyles’ hit piece on Babenic to Stillwater Democrat state Representative Cory Williams.TMR sources say it w […]
Prosecutors are becoming like Inspector Javert Oklahoma’s past 20 years have had one enduring, yet dubious legacy; the resolve to “Get tough on crime!” . But not many Oklahomans believe our statutes reflect that we are “smart on crime”. We’ve become hell-bent on changing hearts, yet we have just pushed many people further into crime, for life. When we don’t offer an attainable way out of a stupid decision, those who did have a desire for change will believe their life is […]

Tonight I had the privilege of spending the evening with a small group of conservatives. We asked the Oklahoma State Auditor & Inspector, Gary Jones, to give us his report on the state of Oklahoma government. He gave us more information than I could dictate to my twitter account, but I got some bullet points to share with the readers. Mr. Jones said little about the recently released audit of the Oklahoma County jail, in Oklahoma City. Most of that is covered in my previous repor […]
(Idabel, OK, 10/19/2016) — Steven McGowen, candidate for Oklahoma’s House of Representatives, has earned the endorsement of Gun Owners of America, a national gun rights group committed to defeating restrictive gun legislation and politicians who are working to disarm the population. Gun Owners of America endorses the pro-gun candidate in a race who agrees that the 2nd Amendment truly is a right that ‘shall not be infringed’ – exactly as the Constitution intends. In addition, McGowen was awarded the ‘AQ’ pro-gun rights rating from the NRA.
Steven McGowen is pleased to be chosen to receive the Gun Owners of America endorsement, outperforming the incumbent Democrat legislator, Johnny Tadlock.
McGowen notes, “I’m not just a gun advocate on paper; I understand the inherent right in our U.S. Constitution that the right to Keep and Bear Arms should not be restricted. When I served in the military, I fought to uphold our Constitution. You can depend on me to continue that fight as your Representative in the State Legislature, to make sure that that right, and every right guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, is upheld and protected.”
Steven McGowen, son of Earl and Sue McGowen, was raised in McCurtain County, where his great, great grandfather’s family settled as sharecroppers just after the Civil War. McGowen is a veteran of both the U.S. Army and then service in the National Guard, a former law enforcement officer, and currently a healthcare professional at the local McCurtain County hospital in Idabel. McGowen runs a cow/calf ranch in Garvin with his father.

Just hours ago, the State Auditor & Inspector’s office released a stinging audit report in the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office. Sheriff John Whetsel oversees the deadliest county jail in the nation, suffering more inmate deaths than all of Texas.Even before this study was conducted, there were many calls for Whetsel’s resignation. Citing several cases of “mismanagement,” a state lawmaker is calling on the Oklahoma […]
In summary, I recommend the following votes on state questions on the ballot for the general election in November 2016:
SQ776 Yes, SQ 777 No, SQ 779 No, SQ 780 Yes, SQ 781 No, SQ 790 Yes, SQ 792 Yes. Read more to find out why.
I will be adding additional reference links on state questions for a few days — so please check back if this is of interest to you! Next up some thoughts on judicial retentions…
The District Attorney serving Oklahoma County, David Prater, requested an audit of the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office several months ago. That audit is now being released and it does not boost the case for John Whetsel’s reelection to another term. Al Gerhart of the Sooner Tea Party offered this sharp critique: ”Probability is high for John Whetsel to go down if not today then sometimes in the next few […]
In an era where totalitarian governments are toppling, the United States federal government is constructing several threats to the foundational liberty our Revolutionary heroes insisted upon. Our congress did not let a terror crisis go to waste where police powers are concerned. The ‘Patriot Act’ of October 26, 2001 was a rushed effort by Jim Sensenbrenner, on behalf of the GW Bush administration. The nati […]
