+ AGENDA FOR THIS WEEK’S MEETING
Our 12 noon luncheon for Wednesday 09.09.09 will be held at Italiano’s Restaurant, 4801 North Lincoln in OKC. This will be a busy week leading up to TEA PARTIES all over the United States. The hoped for largest one will be held in Washington D.C. but there will also be activities in Oklahoma. Our main speaker this week will be KTOK radio’s afternoon talk show host Mark Shannon. Mark in on air from 4 until 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at the 1000 AM marker. Mark and I have had our differences in the past and will probably do so in the future, but our differences are on only about 10% of the issues so it really makes sense to join hands on the majority of issues and oppose the serious threats to our nation.
If you listened to Mark’s program last week your heard him do a super job of exposing the rats in Oklahoma County Government that got their little rats nest upset by newly elected County Commissioner Brian Maughn. Commissioner Maughn forced them out into the light after they ignored his motion to reject their annual salary increase without voting to accept that increase. Maughn had the audacity to speak on Shannon’s show about the issue and in turn he got the Brent Rinehart treatment from some of his fellow Budget Board members. If we were giving out a whiney-butt cry baby award to the one who squealed the loudest it would go to Commissioner Ray Vaughn’s best bud on the budget board, County Assessor RarelyInHisOffice. Oh excuse me, I mispronounced his name, the former RINO nominee when he was in the legislature is none other than Leonard Sullivan. Of course, if we had given out the above mentioned award in the past he would have won it at least another time or two.
In addition, I believe it was Shannon that first blew the lid on President Obama’s plan to speak to the lil school chiln of America, tomorrow on Tuesday. Shannon had a video clip on his web site of the hard core propaganda piece made by a menagerie of Hollywood court jesters that serve at the feet of King Obama. A fellow with a lot more technical skills than I, has transferred it from Mark Shannon’s web- site to a DVD and I was able to see it at a luncheon on Thursday with a group of about 35 patriot pastors. Obama may well tone down his actual talk now that Americans have awakened to another attempt at a power grab by the Prez. I want to make 3 comments about the pro-moe piece. First, its production will really appeal to most of the young minds full of mush that occupy the government school rooms. Second, it is just one more effort to turn the next generation young adults into thoughtless little environmental Nazis. Third, it will be very effective at turning our schools into “political groupie factories”
for President Obama.
There is a scripture in the Bible which says there is nothing new under the sun and it sure holds true with the Obama administration. In the book of Daniel, chapter 1 verses 1 through 5 we see a description of a historical event. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (modern day
Iraq) captured Jerusalem with part of his spoils being some of the most gifted and talented young sons of Israel. He ordered his servants to teach and educate them in the culture of the Chaldeans and to prepare them to be future servants of the King. That is much the same goal of Obama. In the New American Standard version of the Bible, the words teach and educate are actually used. I would say President Obama has little desire to educate children, but rather to indoctrinate them to be good little Marxists and future soldiers to complete his efforts to fully change America from a nation of rugged individuals into a nation of Stateists. Many are suggesting to keep your children at home on Tuesday. That would be a good move; however, a far better move would be to get your children out of the government schools forever if at all possible.
TULSA AREA - Tuesday September 8th will be primary elections for multiple positions for the city of Tulsa, including mayor. Oklahomans For Sovereignty and Free Enterprise (OK-SAFE) produced a 40 question survey for the 41 candidates running for the various offices. The survey along with the responses can be viewed at:
In addition, the conservative Tulsa Area Republican Assembly had an endorsement convention this past Saturday where all of the Republican candidates for office were invited to speak and field questions. It takes a two thirds super majority to win an endorsement. Here are the
results: Chris Medlock was endorsed for mayor, James Mautino for council district 6, Bill Christiansen for council district 8 and Rocky Frisco won the endorsement for council district 4. In addition, Preston Doerflinger won the endorsement for the city auditors race.
The conservative newspaper, The Tulsa Beacon has the same endorsements with one exception. They did not endorse Bill Christianson in the district 8 race and in fact made no endorsement for that seat. You may have reason to differ with these endorsements, but if you haven’t researched the issues and candidates, then I highly recommend these endorsements.
I will say this, Dewey Bartlett is the dictionary definition of a RINO (Republican In Name Only). He will be very difficult to beat without a run-off system as he has high name recognition and the liberal Tulsa Republicans love him and will support him. He was a huge supporter of the disastrous Democrat Mayor, Kathy Taylor and has said as much as, he will continue in her efforts to lead Tulsa. Shame on you, if you vote for Dewey.
TULSA AREA - Wednesday September 9th the Tulsa County Republican Men’s Club will meet for lunch, 12 noon, at the Hong Kong Restaurant,
7315 South Memorial Drive. Any of the Republican candidates who won in their respective primaries the day before will be invited to speak.
OKC AREA - After a Summer break, the Business and Professional Chapter of the John Birch Society will start up their 2nd Wednesday of each month early morning breakfast meetings. A breakfast buffet is ready at 7:15 and the program starts at 7:45 a.m.. The location is the Character First Center at 520 West Main in downtown OKC. Speaking at this month’s meeting will be Tom Vineyard, pastor of Windsor Hills Baptist Church. Tom was a missionary to 3 different countries on the African continent covering a 15 year span of time. He experienced Muslim extremists first hand as all 3 of those nations experienced civil wars during his time there. In his last mission, he was nearly killed by roving thugs intent on robbery. Come hear his amazing testimony about his experiences. The buffet breakfast is $6 and the fellowship before the meeting is always great.
OKC AREA - The Sooner Tea Party has chartered a bus to go to Washington D.C. for the big Tea Party at the U. S. Capitol. I received an e-mail that they still have about 5 seats left on the bus. They will leave Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. from OKC. The cost is $250 for the ride, an expected $50 for motel (multiple occupancy) and figure on $100 to $150 for personal expenses. If you are interested, please contact Al Gerhart at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (405)
412-6233 for more information.
EASTERN OKLAHOMA - Thursday, several of our members from here will be going to Stegler Oklahoma in Haskell County to visit with some of the local business leaders as well as present an OCPAC Proclamation (assuming our members vote to approve the proclamation) to the Haskell County Commissioners. They have been steadfast in their desire to be able to express free speech guaranteed by the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution (see the content of the proclamation under OCPAC vote). If you are interested in going, please contact Clark Curry
(405 348-9991) during normal business hours.
ADA OKLAHOMA - The organizers of the Ada area Tea Party are having their event on Friday evening, September 11th, starting at 6:30 p.m..
It will be held in the Pontotoc VoTech Auditorium in Ada. Part of the program will feature a candidate forum. All of the candidates for governor or a representative were invited to speak and field questions. Senator Randy Brogdon (R-Owasso) will be there along with a person representing Drew Edmondson (Democrat Attorney General). At least two other candidates will be present, Dr. Johnny Roy (5th district congressional candidate) from Edmond and R.J. Harris (4th district congressional candidate). Several of the organizers and those who attend this tea party live in either of these districts. For more information contact Catherine White at (405) 941-3381.
OKC AREA - The Sooner Tea Party folks are hosting a Tea Party-Watch Party on Saturday, September 12th from 11:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. in the Auditorium on the Metro Tech campus which is about 1 mile South of the OKC Zoo. You will be able to watch Glen Beck’s Program, MARCH ON WASHINGTON D.C. on a big screen TV. 912 organizer Casey McDaniel will emcee the event.
I will put out a special e-mail Thursday evening with information about the solidarity march and the big tea party on Sunday afternoon, September the 13th. This time the tea party will be on the North steps of the Capitol. I may also have information about other tea parties in the state.
OCPAC VOTE - I asked OCPAC Vice Chairman Richard Engle to produce a proclamation honoring the County Commissioners in Haskell County for their tireless efforts to be able to display a monument on the courthouse grounds honoring the 10 Commandments and their significant impact upon the history of our state and nation. Our members attending Wednesday’s meeting will vote yes or no as to this becoming an official proclamation issued by OCPAC. The content is as follows:
Whereas, the Board of County Commissioners of Haskell County Oklahoma did properly approve the request of a private citizen to express freedom of speech in the erecting of a monument depicting the Ten Commandments on public property near the county courthouse in 2004, and
Whereas, the event dedicating the monument was met by remarks favorable to the monument by numerous members of the community as is proper in a nation in which freedom of speech is a paramount public virtue, and
Whereas, in August 2006 an ACLU sponsored case against the Board of County Commissioners resulted in a ruling that affirmed that constitutionality of the action by the Board to permit the private sponsorship of the monument, and
Whereas, the public property near the county courthouse also includes monuments commemorating veterans of military actions, as well as a monument concerning unmarked graves, a monument celebrating the Choctaw Indian Tribe, and numerous others commemorating events of significance showing that the privately sponsored Ten Commandments monument is consistent with the nature of the courthouse property being recognized by the Board of County Commissioners of Haskell County as an area proper for the exercise of free speech rights, and
Whereas, members of the Board of County Commissioners of Haskell County allowed the monument because of its historic significance and that those Commissioners have communicated that other historic monuments would be allowed regardless of the religious nature of any such monuments or of the religion of persons applying to place such monuments, and
Whereas, a three judge panel overturned the ruling affirming the constitutionality of the action of the Board of County Commissioners to permit free speech, and
Whereas, the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit failed to uphold the free speech rights of the citizens of Haskell County on an evenly split vote, and
Whereas, the Board of County Commissioners of Haskell County Oklahoma are continuing to serve their constituents by advancing an appeal of the split decision of that court.
Therefore, the Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee does this ninth day of September, in the year of our Lord Two Thousand Nine commend the actions of the Board of County Commissioners of Haskell County Oklahoma regarding their steadfast resolve to uphold their responsibilities to their constituents, and their responsibility to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Oklahoma in protecting the free speech right of its citizens by continuing to permit this private display on public property despite overwhelming adversity and opposition by well funded persons and entities not representative of the good people of Haskell County Oklahoma.

There are four candidates, Mary Fallin, and Randy Brogdon on the Republican side as well as Jari Askins and Drew Edmondson representing the Democrat (notice I didn’t dumb myself down and use the word democratic, which speaks of process, and is not an adj.) side of the race.
