  • Reform of Oklahoma Knife law goes to Governor Fallin

    Ammoland ^ | 27 April, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    The restoration of the right to keep and carry weapons continues in Oklahoma.  On 20 April, SB 1159 was sent to Governor Mary Fallin for consideration. The infringement on the carry of weapons had been put into law not long after Oklahoma became a state in 1907, during the early “progressive” era.    There are several sections listed in the 1921 Oklahoma Criminal Code,  pages 523 to 525, published in 1921.  The sections covering the carry of weapons are sections 1798 through 1806.1798 is the state constitutional guarantee of right to keep and bear arms, which then perversely grants...

    Dr. No seems to have become Dr. Yes. Kind of. Tom Coburn, the former Republican senator from Oklahoma known for his often contrarian views, said Wednesday that Judge Merrick B. Garland should get a vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee, going against his old colleagues who have staunchly opposed even considering President Obama's Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year....

    lifenews.com ^ | April 25, 2016 | Steven Ertelt
    A bill headed to Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin’s desk this week would strip abortionists of their medical licenses and basically outlaw abortions in the state. The bill describes an abortion as “unprofessional conduct” and prohibits Oklahoma medical licensure officials from renewing or granting licenses to doctors who do abortions, except to save the mother’s life, according to the Washington Post. The state House passed the bill on Thursday in a strong, bipartisan vote; and the Oklahoma Senate passed it in March, LifeNews reported. Oklahoma state Sen. Nathan Dahm, who sponsored the measure, said the purpose is to protect unborn babies’...

    On April 20, the Oklahoma Senate voted 37-9 to pass legislation recognizing that the Second Amendment is a sufficient open carry permit. The legislation, HB 3098, had already passed in the House by a vote of 73-15. According to News 9, the Senate passed the bill via “a procedural move that forces the bill into conference committee” for one final look before it heads to Governor Mary Fallin (R). If changes are made to the bill while in committee, it will be brought back to the Floor for another vote. The decision to return to committee came after some senators...

    Associated Press ^ | Apr. 21, 2016 9:59 PM EDT | Sean Murphy
    Oklahoma voters will decide in November whether to abolish an article of the state constitution so that a Ten Commandments monument can be returned to the Capitol grounds. The House voted 65-7 late Thursday for a resolution calling for a statewide vote on whether to remove a constitutional prohibition on the use of state funds to support a religion. The state Supreme Court relied on that section of the constitution in June when it ordered a 6-foot-tall granite Ten Commandments monument moved from the Capitol grounds. The monument’s removal angered many Oklahomans, particularly Republican lawmakers who vowed to return the...

    Forbes ^ | 4/20/16 | Michael F. Cannon
    UnitedHealth is withdrawing from most of the 34 ObamaCare Exchanges in which it currently sells, citing losses of $650 million in 2016. A recent Kaiser Family Foundation report indicates UnitedHealth’s departure will leave consumers on Oklahoma’s Exchange with only one choice of insurance carriers. Were UnitedHealth to exit all 34 states, the share of counties with only one or two carriers on the Exchange would rise from 36% to 52%, while the share of enrollees with only one or two carriers from which to choose would nearly double from 15% to 29%. The Obama administration dismissed the news as unimportant. A spokesman professed...

    Tuesday morning, people across the state and country will take time to remember the 168 lives that were lost 21 years ago. On April 19, 1995, a bomb exploded outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, destroying much of the nine-story structure. While the scars have healed since that day, the memories are still fresh in the minds of so many. Today, we honor those 168 lives lost, but not forgotten. The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum hosts the 21st Anniversary Remembrance Ceremony beginning at 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday. During the program, 168 seconds of silence will be observed...

    The Washington Times ^ | April 11, 2016 | Stephan Dinan
    Investigators identified nearly 2,000 cases of potentially phony disability claims stemming from a massive Social Security fraud scheme, but three years after the scam was first exposed, the government says it’s still struggling to stop the payments. Only slightly more than 300 cases have been disqualified, and Social Security is still “in the process of effectuating those terminations,” the agency told The Washington Times just days after the accused ringleader and two lead accomplices were indicted on federal fraud charges. Despite three investigations into suspicions of massive fraud, Social Security officials say they are assuming all of the applications are...

    Oklahomans would be allowed to openly carry firearms without a license, training or background checks under a bill that has easily cleared a Senate committee. ~SNIP~ The bill would allow anyone over the age of 21 to carry a firearm openly, unless they have been convicted of a felony. A license would still be needed to carry a firearm concealed.

Of course. That is the only possible explanation for her behavior, right? After all, who ever heard of someone of "Middle Eastern descent" having any interest in setting off a bomb?

  • 2nd dummy found hanging by noose in Spring Valley

    SPRING VALLEY - For the second time in a week, the Orthodox Jewish tradition for the Purim holiday has alarmed non-Jewish members of the Spring Valley community. When News 12 went to the home on Wednesday, the doll was found folded over on the porch. The homeowner declined comment. Residents say the doll was hung by children for Purim to symbolize the death of the ancient tyrant Haman and was not meant to offend. Hundreds took to social media after a black-faced doll was found hanging nearby, on Paikin Drive in Spring Valley. Rockland NAACP President Wilbur Aldridge says he...

    The president of the evangelical Oklahoma Wesleyan University, Dr. Everett Piper, was adamant about sending children to the right university and academic institution, in his recent interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas. When Thomas asked him what could be done about sending children to liberal institutions, Piper said, "Stop sending your kids to these institutions that teach this pablum." Then, he gives advice on how to distinguish what universities are teaching their students. "Obviously, it can be found out easily by checking the news," he said. But, he added, if you have reservations about the institution, "do two simple...

    The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has never been known as a venue for self-help seminars, but in 2016 it happened. A session called Campus Crackdown focused on practical steps that conservative students could take to counter the growing epidemic of protests known as the "snowflake rebellion." Launched by these students' anxiety-ridden counterparts, posing as fragile little snowflakes unable to cope with the mere idea of viewing unsavory Halloween costumes, the movement that has been successfully covered up by politically correct campus administrators, was exposed as another left wing attempt to censor free speech. Princeton University senior and panelist Josh...

    There's something else that universities have missed in their diversity checklist. "Because when we teach communism is good, capitalism is bad, when we teach self-actualization is the goal of the academy rather than selflessness and sacrifice and confession, when we teach arrogance and narcissism rather than humility in the classroom, why are we surprised to see a culture that is acting badly?" Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Dr. Everett Piper said to The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, in a recent interview. He believed that in order to "solve a culture's problem" and attempt to heal the soul, "you might [want] to...

The Daily Caller's Ginni Thomas recently interviewed Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Dr. Everett Piper and asked about the growing intolerance and protests on college campuses, which he called "ideological fascism." He strongly believed that ideas have consequences: good ideas lead to good culture, behavior and community. Bad ideas do the opposite, he noted.

    An initiative petition calling for a statewide vote on whether to outlaw abortion is unconstitutional, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday. In a two-page ruling, the state's highest court said the decision runs afoul of a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court decision involving abortion-related statutes in Pennsylvania and that the state Supreme Court "is not free to impose its own view of the law." The unanimous ruling says the petition is "facially unconstitutional" and that the state Supreme Court is duty bound by the United States and Oklahoma constitutions to 'follow the mandate of the United States Supreme Court on matters...

This is being orchestrated by GOP County Chairmen, primarily in and out of County conventions.

Here's the rub: Although all delegates are bound to vote for the delegates on the FIRST ballot. After that they can vote to change convention Rules and vote for any candidate you want.

    The best line from any Trump stump speech this year is “Everyone wants Washington to change, and that means changing everyone in Washington.” No, wait — I’m mixed up. Trump didn’t say that. It was Tom Coburn, announcing his retirement from the Senate, who did. Coburn was raging against a corrupt establishment in D.C. back when Trump was still firing people on “The Apprentice.” Such was his despair at what he encountered in the capital that he spent the last few years calling for a convention of the states to fix Washington. He’s a perfect choice in many ways for...

    Republican leaders adamantly opposed to Donald J. Trump’s candidacy are preparing a 100-day campaign to deny him the presidential nomination, starting with an aggressive battle in Wisconsin’s April 5 primary and extending into the summer, with a delegate-by-delegate lobbying effort that would cast Mr. Trump as a calamitous choice for the general election. Recognizing that Mr. Trump has seized a formidable advantage in the race, they say that an effort to block him would rely on an array of desperation measures, the political equivalent of guerrilla fighting. There is no longer room for error or delay, the anti-Trump forces say,...

    Establishment Republicans are looking to retired senator Tom Coburn or retired Texas governor Rick Perry as possible third-party options if they can’t stop Donald Trump at a brokered convention in Cleveland. Neoconservative pundit Bill Kristol, son of Irving, has been one of the leading forces trying to broker the convention to throw out the will of the people if Donald Trump fails to make it to 1,237 delegates before July. But even if Trump reaches 1,237, Kristol and the gang are considering running a third-party candidate against him to split the vote, ensure that Hillary Clinton wins, and keep control...

    Republican leaders in the Oklahoma State Senate have blocked SB 1118, a bill to classify abortion as first-degree murder punishable by life imprisonment or the death penalty, from coming up for a floor vote. Last week, Live Action News reported that the bill was introduced by Republican State Senator Joe Silk in response to a 30,000-signature petition drive calling for a more absolute and immediate stand against abortion than incremental pro-life legislation. Tactically, there are differing schools of thought in the pro-life movement regarding whether state legislatures should go as far as total criminalization before overturning Roe v. Wade. However,...

Hertz IT employees share two things with the Carrier workers: They were also angry, and they got the news on the same day, Feb. 10. The Carrier layoffs arrived guillotine-like; the plant is closing, period. But IT layoffs are rarely like that. There are ambiguities and uncertainties and lifeboats for some, and so it was at Hertz.

The original plan was to put a Constitutional Amendment prohibiting abortion on the November ballot. The question would have allowed the people of Oklahoma to vote to end the practice of abortion or to retain it. But, the ACLU of Oklahoma filed a protest, halting the collection of signatures and forcing the Oklahoma Supreme Court to allow or deny the abolitionists...

He increased his lead over Marco Rubio in states won, votes won, and delegates won--and unless Rubio can win in Florida in two weeks (or John Kasich can win in Ohio), Cruz may soon be battling Donald Trump one-on-one (more or less) for the Republican nomination. But how can Cruz beat Trump? The number-one thing that needs to be undone from the...
