The incoming freshman class of 2012 in the Oklahoma House are noted for their ascent to leadership. There are just 8 of them, in all. This past winter they took over the House leadership and consolidated much of the power within their small group. There are only 8 of them (one Democrat and seven Republicans). Until this past session they had a composite score of better than 54%, in the Conservative Index. But then they got power and position to set […]

The Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller special counsel this week. His mission is to investigate suspected collusion between Team Trump and Russia. And pretty much anything else that strikes his fancy once he gets going. Mueller’s a career creature of the Washington Swamp. But, as swamp creatures go, he’s one of the most respected. He served as

President Donald Trump is not exactly known for his self-restraint. The recent firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey was not handled with any delicacy and has unleashed a firestorm of criticism coming from across the political spectrum. And since Comey’s abrupt dismissal the backstabbing has become even worse, with many coming around to the view that Trump is actually crudely threatening Comey over the issue of what might or might not have been said at dinners and meetings between the two men.

It is with deep regret, we announce the resignation of Kyle Loveless effective immediately. The news broke today on multiple outlets. We sincerely hope that someone else will pick up the torch and continue the battle on civil asset forfeiture in Okla…
It was a question proffered to me by a wise Edmond resident: “Why would you want to do that?”The Edmond resident was responding to my visits to his home as I sought his vote during my initial effort to win election to the House of Representative. His….
I am convinced that the US, and probably the entire Western world, that is, the American Empire, has entered an era in which respect for truth does not exist in public and private institutions. We have been watching this develop for some time. Think, for example, back to August 3, 2002, a recent time in terms of our present predicament, but a time prior to political consciousness of anyone younger today than 33 years old. In the summer of 2002, the world was being prepared by propaganda for a US invasion of Iraq. On August 3 of that year, the prestigious British publication, The Economist, summed up the consensus of ruling opinion in two sentences: “The honest choices now are to give up and give in, or to remove Mr. Hussein before he gets his [nuclear] bomb. Painful as it is, our vote is for war.”
As Lewis Lapham, myself and others asked at the time, what bomb?

How much do you think those elected to the State House respect their constituents? Not much according to all the legislative action to overturn the criminal justice reform ballot votes of the people from this past November. Apparently a great many legislators elected to represent believe their job is to go against the direct voice of the people. Their actions indicate a blatant disrespect for the voters. The excuses and reasoning given for these betrayals basically equate to we the voters being ignorant peasants too stupid to know what we were doing. Welcome to representative government that not only doesn’t represent but goes against the clear will of the people on enhancing justice. Be contacting your State Senators to tell them to respect your November votes and oppose this HB1482 and those like it.

Nobody to pull for who won’t cave to leftists. Repeal Obamacare? Sure! They can do that! On day 1 even. Except the Republicans in the House are gutless. The “Day One” repeal becomes over a month in, and then it … Continue reading →
State Rep. Dan Kirby (R-Tulsa) has released a statement saying that he will resign from office, just a few days in advance of an expected vote to expel him from the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who have been made in God’s likeness. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. James 3:9-12
Isn’t it interesting how good and evil can come forth from the same mouth? One minute we are praising God and the next we are cursing or tearing down our fellow man. Out of the same mouth that praises God comes insults, cursing, slander, gossip, etc., etc. The Bible tells us that this should not be. It also tells us that the tongue is very difficult to tame and control. I believe, though, that with God’s help, it can be tamed and controlled.
