    What if Obamacare subsidies disappear? This week a critical decision is expected on Halbig vs. Burwell, formerly titled Halbig vs. Sebelius. The case challenges the IRS for providing millions of dollars in Obamacare subsidies to people in 36 states through the federal exchange, Healthcare.gov. Waiting in the wings is Pruitt vs. Burwell, a case filed by the Oklahoma Attorney General that also challenges the subsidies. One or both cases could end up in the Supreme Court. Halbig plaintiffs say the law allows subsidies only through a state exchange. And because the mandate and its penalties are hinged on the existence...

    The last time the Thunder walked out of San Antonio the team left with a series deficit that at the time seemed insurmountable. But in the back of everyoneís mind was history. It was the one thing the Thunder and its fans had to cling to when searching for a reason to believe this team could march back to the NBA Finals. Then Serge Ibaka came back. And then the Thunder won twice in Oklahoma City to tie the Western Conference Finals at two games apiece. Before we knew it, a repeat of 2012 looked not just possible but likely....

    Oil companies say a weeks-old Obama administration ruling that protects a Southwestern prairie bird has already halted oil-drilling operations in Kansas and is costing the U.S. economy tens of millions of dollars, as a GOP congressmen suggests the move is another ďjob-killingĒ attack on fossil fuel. The decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that was announced in late March and took effect May 1 includes a provision that should allow federal officials and landowners in the five impacted states -- Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas -- to manage conservation efforts. But oil producers say the interim...

    The Missouri Legislature has followed Oklahoma in placing an amendment to strengthen the right to keep and bear arms on the ballot for this November, 2014.† The wording on the ballot will read: Shall the Missouri Constitution† be amended to include a declaration that the right to keep and bear arms is an unalienable right and that the state government is obligated to uphold that right? The current amendment reads as follows: †Section 23. That the right of every citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or when lawfully summoned in aid...

    Governor Fallin, (R) Oklahoma, vetoed a number of bills in what has been described as a "tantrum" on the 29th of April.† The Oklahoma House overrode the veto of HB2461 on May 4th.†† It was then reported that the Senate would not vote on veto override. HB 2461 is a "shall sign" law that requires Chief Law Enforcement Officers (CLEOs) to allow Oklahoma residents to pay the $200 tax necessary to obtain class III NFA items, which primarily concern gun mufflers, short barreled rifles and shotguns, and automatic firearms.† This follows a trend in other states to require CLEOs...
  • Oklahoma State Senate not planning to override gun rights veto

    Last week, when this column reported that the Oklahoma House had voted overwhelmingly to override Governor Mary Fallin's veto of the gun rights bill HB 2461, a similar vote in the Senate seemed inevitable. The Senate's original vote on the bill, after all, was 46-2. Failure to obtain the 32 votes for the required 2/3 majority would thus mean that 15 senators would have to decide to submit to Governor Fallin's little temper tantrum. Now, though, the Tulsa World reports that the Senate Republican "leadership" has no plans to take any vote at all: Senate Floor Leader Mike Schulz, R-Altus,...

    Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma vetoed 15 measures on Tuesday, the 29th of April. † She described the measures as serving "no significant interest of the citizens".††† Three of the measures were issues pushed by second amendment supporters that passed the legislature nearly unanimously. HB 3367 is Oklahoma's knife preemption bill.† It passed the House 88-3 and the Senate 45-1.† It provides the same protection from local government overreach to knives that Oklahoma already provides for firearms.†† Several other states have passed similar laws. HB 2539 cleans up some antique language in the law about justifiable homicide.† It passed...

    The Oklahoma legislature is sending a constitutional amendment to the people for a vote in November of 2014.†† It is meant to clarify and strengthen the right to keep and bear arms.†† The desire and need for such clarification is understandable.†† The current Article II, Section 26, reads: ďThe right of a citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person, or property, or in aid of the civil power, when thereunto legally summoned, shall never be prohibited; but nothing herein contained shall prevent the Legislature from regulating the carrying of weapons.Ē The problem, obviously, is...

    Nonetheless, the satanists are building this thing, and I was offered an early peek at the work in progress by Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves. Greaves told me he has received numerous threats from people who want to attack the sculpture, but that he ďwouldnít expect these outraged and nearly insensible reactionaries to actually know how to assault a bronze monument without severely hurting themselves in the process.Ē Still, heís not taking any chances. The Temple is building a mold of the sculpture so they can pop these things out like evil, terribly expensive action figures whenever they need a new...

    A group of armed militia and protesters, some sporting nametags reading "domestic terrorist," remain camped out on a cattle ranch in Nevada, where they have been purportedly defending the property since a tense showdown ended with the federal government last week. A 20-year struggle between rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management over decades of alleged illegal cattle grazing on public land ended last Sunday, with the government backing down from a controversial week-long cattle round-up. The BLM defused the standoff, citing safety concerns for its employees and the protesters, some of whom were on horseback and others...
