Caught with his Hand in the Till, Congressman Mullins
Breaks Campaign Promise of Only Three Terms to Avoid Paying Back the Campaign Funds?
By the Watchman
Never before in our eight years of coverage of Oklahoma politics have we ran into such an arrogant politician like Markwayne Mullins. This man is so self-centered and power hungry that he has fooled himself into believing that he doesn’t work for the people who elected him. We can’t help but wonder if his plumbing business is being ran as bad.
What brought our attention to this individual was this story Oklahoma pol: ‘Bull crap’ constituents pay salary – CNNPolitics.com. We realize that using CNN as a source may cause some heartburn over this maybe being fake news. That is not the case here. Their story is supported by this article Rep. Markwayne Mullin calls ‘bullcrap’ at town hall in Jay: ‘This is a service. No one here pays me to go’ | Government | tuls. In fact you will find that this story is not only included in these two articles, but is also included in many local newspapers in Congressional District 2. This is a clear example of a man who has let power go to his head.

by Neal McCluskey, CATO Institute I was wrong. When the Every Student Succeeds Act passed in late 2015, I identified two ambiguities I thought were most ripe for exploitation to keep the federal boot hovering over public schools: the requirement that states have “challenging” curricular standards and that standardized tests be given “much greater” weight in accountability systems…

In the first line of the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson speaks of “one people.” The Constitution, agreed upon by the Founding Fathers in Philadelphia in 1789, begins, “We the people…”

And who were these “people”?

In Federalist No. 2, John Jay writes of them as “one united people … descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs…”
