    MSN/Newsweek ^ | 4-9-21 | Darragh Roche
    President Joe Biden's nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) may have falsely claimed that cult members at Waco shot down helicopters. David Chipman has been slated to lead the agency as the Biden administration looks at ways to implement more restrictions on access to firearms. Chipman was an ATF agent for 25 years and is currently a senior policy advisor at Giffords, a lobby group seeking stricter gun laws led by former representative Gabriel Giffords. During a Reddit "Ask Me Anything (AMA)" last year, a user identifying himself as Chipman made the claim about members...

    Protesters blamed for the violence that broke out in Oklahoma City the last weekend in May were charged Friday with terrorism, rioting and assault. If convicted of the felony offenses, they could be sentenced to years in prison. Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater made the decisions himself on the charges in a get-tough approach meant to deter others from going too far during protests in the future. "This is not Seattle," Prater said Friday. "We're not putting up with this lawlessness here."

    THE THIRD TERRORISTNOTE: I have had many conversations with Jayna. She has the story nailed about this unbelievable coverup. The late Dave Schippers (Clinton House impeachment manager) even flew to OKC some years after her book and put under oath 12 of her witnesses. Schippers appeared in my film HILLARY! UNCENSORED, and I have had several conversations with him about OKC. He told me he could used their testimony and gotten indictments. Why did the FBI hide the truth? Witnesses who had the truth were either never called by the FBI or their testimony was hidden. The night before...

    MY COMMENTS: This is a great video presentation. Bill Clinton and the Deep State hid what really happened in OKC, just as he did with the shoot down of TWA Flight 800 four months before the 1996 election. In OKC, Clinton deviously but brilliantly used the bombing to create hate against Rush Limbaugh, Jerry Falwell, and "that damned video" --- THE CLINTON CHRONICLES. Clinton drew the line in the sand for his followers that, no matter what he did, they had to back him to stop the dreaded right wing. Dave Schippers, who handled the House Managers in the Clinton...

    "On October 23, the Oklahoma City Public Schools Board of Education voted to move forward with changing the names of three elementary schools originally dedicated to Confederate leaders: Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Isaac Stand Watie. As the district begins the input process to determine the names these facilities will bear moving forward, I hope to use it as a teachable moment for our students and to establish a positive image and a sense of pride for these school communities to carry them into the future," Superintendent Aurora Lora said in a statement.

    A 23-year-old man who said he hated the U.S. government has been arrested by the FBI for allegedly trying to blow up an Oklahoma City bank with what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb in a truck. According to a criminal complaint, Jerry Drake Varnell wanted to start a militia group and admired Timothy McVeigh, the domestic terrorist who was convicted and executed for setting off a massive truck bomb outside a federal building in Oklahoma City in April 1995. Varnell thought he was dealing with two fellow sympathizers in the anti-government movement but they were a confidential informant and...

    For years, Oklahoma lead the nation in prescription painkiller abuse according to SAMHSA. Oklahoma and the nation set out to do something but it was almost totally "supply-side", regulatory and law enforcement oriented to reduce the supply of opioid tablets on the street. These measures were much needed but they did nothing to help the estimated 245,000 prescription painkiller abusers in Oklahoma, nor prevent new entries into the problem, "demand-side". Demand-side interventions are treatment and prevention initiatives. Why are demand-side interventions important? Addiction to opiates is the most powerful addiction. If you shut off supply dramatically, without demand interventions, you...

    The Confederate debate is heating up once again, and now vandals have taken to defacing confederate soldier monuments at one metro cemetery. The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a group which only relatives of those who fought in the war can join. While they recognize that, today, the Confederate Flag is not popular, the group say it’s no excuse for defacing a memorial honoring soldiers who died. ‘Rest in peace’ is the purpose of cemeteries everywhere. But that peace was disturbed sometime Wednesday night into Thursday morning. “I want to be forgiving, but it really hurts us to have our...

    (CNN)—Twenty years ago, on April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh detonated a massive truck bomb in front of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The attack killed 168 men, women and children, injured hundreds more, and remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in U.S. history. The attack's aftermath saw a storm of media coverage with themes such as "attack on the heartland" and America's "lost innocence." In fact, the bombing took the country by surprise. It wasn't simply the scale of the tragedy that drew attention, but the fact that the bombing exposed something new: American citizens targeting their...
