  • Oklahoma Doctors vs. Obamacare; How one surgery center offers high quality healthcare at low prices

    04/28/2016 9:18:58 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 2 replies
    YouTube ^ | 04/28/2016
    Three years ago, Dr. Keith Smith, co-founder and managing partner of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, took an initiative that would only be considered radical in the health care industry: He posted online a list of prices for 112 common surgical procedures. The 51-year-old Smith, a self-described libertarian, and his business partner, Dr. Steve Lantier, founded the Surgery Center 15 years ago, after they became disillusioned with the way patients were treated at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, where the two men worked as anesthesiologists. In 1997, Smith and Lantier bought the shell of a former surgical center with...
  • Man Gets City’s Attention by Throwing ‘Birthday Party’ for Massive Pothole

    04/28/2016 1:50:22 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 35 replies
    Oklahoma drivers know a thing or two about potholes, but one Mississippi man got so fed up with the nuisance that he decided to get the city’s attention in a unique way. “After 14 calls to 311, I thought it was time to do something different,” said Eddie Prosser. Prosser says a huge pothole in the middle of his residential street has been a nightmare for drivers. Prosser told WJTV that the pothole appeared about 16 months ago, which caused two smaller potholes to form about a year ago. When his calls for help went unanswered, Prosser decided to throw...

    Oklahomans whose assets are unjustly seized through the civil asset forfeiture process can recover their attorney fees under a new state law. Gov.

    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’...

    breitbart.com ^ | 4/21/2016 | AWR Hawkins
    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...

    The Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday passed a bill that would allow people to openly carry firearms without a permit and without training. A total of 34 organizations — including the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Oklahoma State Troopers Association, universities, chambers of commerce and hospitals — sent a letter to Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman in opposition to House Bill 3098 and House Joint Resolution 1009, a proposed ballot measure intended to make it harder to regulate guns. House Bill 3098 was approved 37-9. The joint resolution was not considered. Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, said the bill won't expand...

    Oklahoma Second Amendment Supporters, particularly OK2A, have been pushing for a reform of the state Constitution's weak protection of the right to keep and bear arms.  The reform has strong support, but has been bottled up in committees.  The reform is needed because current Section II-26 has been ruled by the Oklahoma Supreme Court to offer little serious protection.  Here is the current version: The 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...

    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...

    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,...

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,...

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.

    On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled in favor of upholding House Bill 2684, which restricts the use of abortion-inducing drugs. The legislation requires that doctors administer abortion-inducing drugs only while following Food and Drug Administration protocols. The bill was signed in 2014 by Governor Mary Fallin, but last year, an abortion chain sued, claiming the FDA’s rules are outdated, and an Oklahoma judge overturned the bill, claiming it was unconstitutional. The state’s highest court disagreed, finding that House Bill 2684 does not violate constitutional provisions. However, the court also strangely took a dig at abortion safety laws, saying, “We...

    Kyrie Irving did not sleep tight because the team hotel did let the bed bugs bite Saturday night. "Our team said I was out with flu-like symptoms," Irving confessed to the media Monday night about his absence from Sunday's game against the Oklahoma. "It was honestly from the bed bugs from the frickin' Hilton that we stayed at." The Cavaliers stayed at the oldest hotel in Oklahoma City over the weekend ... Just imagine how freaked out you'd be if you saw friggin' five, big-ass bed bugs just sitting on your pillow," Irving told the media after Monday's loss to...

    SB1142 by Senator Dahm will be heard in the Senate Tourism and Wildlife Committee this week. SB1142 is an OK2A requested bill that mirrors HB2859, which would restrict Game Wardens from entering private property without a warrant or probable cause. We have already discussed some of the misinformation about the issue last week (click here to read more). Those opposed to the bill have tried to make the discussion about poaching. This bill will not keep Game Wardens from catching poachers. They've tried to play the class warfare card. Never mind the fact this will apply to far more middle...

    Republican State Representative Randy Grau, at the request of the District Attorney's Council, has authored a bill that would greatly weaken Oklahoma's "Stand Your Ground" law. Currently, when a judge rules that the protections of the Stand Your Ground law apply in a case, the prosecutors cannot appeal that ruling. Rep. Grau's bill, HB2521, would allow prosecutors to appeal that ruling. After heated opposition from Rep. Kevin Calvey (the original author of the Stand Your Ground law) and OK2A-Action during last week's Judiciary Committee meeting, Rep. Grau laid the bill over in order to keep it from being voted down....

    A U.S. Army reservist from Tulsa asked to leave a gun range in eastern Oklahoma after identifying himself as a Muslim sued the owners Wednesday, the latest in a series of cases across the nation alleging anti-Islamic discrimination. The lawsuit on behalf of 29-year-old Raja'ee Fatihah, an employee with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, was filed in U.S. District Court in Muskogee against the owners of Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gun Range in the small town of Oktaha. A sign posted on the business declared the range a "Muslim-free" establishment, and is similar to signs that have been...

    Conventional wisdom among many of my peers in the "pro-Israel" community is that Rubio & Cruz are indistinguishable as it relates to support for Israel, and on Foreign Policy as a whole. Is that indeed true?...
