Wednesday, March 10, 2010








Our 12 noon luncheon for Wednesday, March 10th will be held at Italiano’s restaurant, 4801 North Lincoln in OKC. We will have a very busy meeting this Wednesday with Tim Gillespie up first. He will present the 12 guage shotgun to the person who won the recent drawing, as well as give us an up-date about the games Representative Sue Tibbs is playing concerning the open carry law that many of us want passed.

Also, he will announce a great opportunity to attend a workshop and build your own AK-47 for a good deal less than the retail cost. Second we will have one of our State Senator’s Executive Assistants (EA) and one of our state Representative’s Legislative Assistants (LA) give us a brief presentation on a new web-site they have created on how to access information about transparency in government. Then our main speaker will be Mr. Robert Gomez, Msgt, USAF (RET). Mr. Gomez is the President of the Oklahoma Chapter of the group OATH KEEPERS. Mr. Gomez is also one of the National Board Members for the national organization of OATH KEEPERS. Last week we started interviewing candidates, if you attended you know that Mark Costello won our endorsement, surprisingly without a run-off vote. I had a candidate who needed to re-schedule away from this week, so we are having these others for our program. Don’t miss this meeting as it will be most informative.


+ OKC AREA - Starting this Tuesday, March 9th and continuing every

Tuesday through April 13, H&H Gun Range will host a class to study the U.S. Constitution. The class will be taught by Don M. Powers of the Powers law firm in Edmond. The class material is from the book “The 5000 Year Leap, by W. Cleon Skousen. Dr. Skousen was one of the founders of the National Center for Constitutional Studies. The times are from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and will be structured as both a lecture and discussion. The end result for a person who attends the entire program is a deeper appreciation for the Constitution and the need to preserve our Liberty through re-establishing the Constitution as the guide for American government. There is no charge for the program, but seating is limited. It is suggested to arrive at the gun range 30 minutes early if possible.

+ OKC AREA - The Business and Professional chapter of the John

Birch Society will have their monthly meeting at the Character First Training Center 520 West Main in downtown OKC. Breakfast is served starting at 7:15 and the meeting will begin at 7:45 a.m.. The guest speaker this month will be State Representative Sally Kern, speaking on the progress of this years legislative session. Representative Kern also recently attended the Education Policy Conference in St. Louis and is the contact for Oklahoma with David Barton’s Wallbuilders Organization. She is a wealth of information about a lot of different subjects.

+ TULSA AREA - The Tulsa County Republican Club will have their

monthly luncheon meeting at 12 noon on Wednesday, March 10th. The speakers will be Ted King from Rogers County speaking on the rise of the Nanny State and Howard Pidcock, candidate for House District 68 which will soon to be vacated by House Speaker Chris Benge. The location of the noon luncheon is the Hong Kong Restaurant, 7315 South Memorial Drive. The public, including women are welcome. For more information contact Gary Casey at 918 855-5908 or Bob McDowell at 481-1050.

+ TULSA AREA - Glen Beck and Sarah Palin will be speaking during

the day on Saturday the 13th. I will be manning an OCPAC table along with some other volunteers in the exhibit hall outside the arena where Beck and Palin will be speaking. If you attend the event, please stop by and say hello. By the way, Beck’s program last Friday on the state of education in America was another outstanding show. I just can’t say enough about the value of much of the information he is bringing to the table at this time. If you have satellite or cable, give him a try and see if I am overstating the program’s value.


For the last couple of weeks many Americans were in a tizzy over Kentucky’s Republican Senator Jim Bunning holding up highway funding and, horror of all horrors, yet another extension of unemployment benefits. Under the pay as you go plan recently put in place by the Democrats, Congress is not supposed to spend additional monies without cutting some other expenditures equal to the amount of the new spending.

Under the unanimous consent rule, bills don’t have to be debated if there is 100% consent to the legislation. If however just one Senator objects, the bill can’t move forward under that procedure. Bunning held up the legislation for several days, before a lack of support from fellow Republicans, and sob stories finally beat him into submission. The Democrats were grand standing with sob stories about hardships on the unemployed so finally Bunning caved on the issue.

Truth is, for a long time now I have been saying that America can’t work its way out of the hole created by decades of overspending by Congress without some level of PAIN! I have also stated that the longer we wait to clean up or mess, the more painful the fix will be.

Therefore, anything we do to restore financial responsibility will be painful to someone, but it is a must that we begin to correct our past ills. Lawmakers in Washington need to communicate that truth to the citizens and then make the hard decisions. That is the definition of leadership

Many people may not know that Senator Coburn is holding up legislation which would send foreign aid to the African Nation of Uganda. Senator Coburn has an increasing crowd of liberal protestors showing up in front of his OKC office to try and pressure him to allow the legislation to go forward. Many of these protestors are from out of State. I would suggest they resemble a “rent a mob crowd” probably being funded by some leftist special interest group. Both Inhoff and Coburn favor the legislation, but Coburn won’t allow the piece to be heard without cutting the same amount of spending somewhere else in the Budget.

While I thank Senator Coburn for not bowing to pressure, he has indicated his opposition will be removed if spending cuts are found. I believe the proper opposition toward the spending should be based upon the Constitution. I just can’t find a place in the Constitutions where this kind of foreign aid is a proper function of the federal government? The money to help the Ugandan’s should come form private sources, not the federal government, especially since the federal government is already bankrupt.


+ BOREN AND HIS CFR BUDDIES It appears that OU President David Boren

is up to his old tricks again of indoctrinating students into the ideas of globalism. Boren is one of the few Oklahoman’s who was and perhaps still is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

On Monday of this week, through his President’s Associates events, he sponsored current CIA Director Leon Panetta and former national security advisors Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft, to speak at the University of Oklahoma’s Foreign Policy Conference, “A New Kind of

Leadership: America and the Rise of the Rest.” All three of these buddies of Boren are members of the CFR. This past Summer we showed a DVD about America’s one world global socialist crowd. The DVD by Patrick Woods of the August Review, exposed Brzezinski as one of the most significant architects in America who has been working toward the goal of destroying our national sovereignty and merging us into a one world global socialist government. Could it be that the euphoria over football and other sports at OU is the pabulum necessary to keep us shoveling money into a University which then indoctrinates our students and community into anti-Americanism?


consideration, former State Senator and Lt. Governor candidate Scott Pruitt has decided to become a candidate for Attorney General. In most cases it is getting a little late to enter a state wide race. However, Pruitt, from Tulsa and now a businessman in OKC has a fair amount of name recognition already in place and the ability to raise a good deal of money quickly. He joins Ryan Leonard who announced during the Republican state convention last year and State Senator Clark Jolly who if getting his campaign geared up with speaking events. This will be one of Oklahoma’s most important elections on this year’s ballot.

We look forward to the 3 of these candidates appearing before the OCPAC members in the near future.

+ BROGDON ENDORSED BY GOA State Senator Randy Brogdon (R-Owasso)

received a huge endorsement from Gun Owners of America, the no compromise Second Amendment advocates working to protect our rights to own and bear arms. They based their endorsement on Senator Brogdon’s unwavering support of the Second Amendment and his leadership in 10th Amendment issues. Congratulations to Senator Brogdon.

+ CUDOS TO THE OKLAHOMAN The last two weeks I have jumped on the

Oklahoma for a couple of reasons, one of which was their attack upon State Representative Charles Key. To their credit they published a response from Representative Key, of which I will post at our meeting this Wednesday.

+ CHA WINS AGAIN Christian Heritage Academy, with its main campus

located in Del City and its North campus located at Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, has won the state championship for the 3rd year in a row in Mock Trial competition. CHA has made the state finals more than any other school in the state. Perhaps even more significant is that there are no size groupings in the Mock Trial competition, so all schools of all sizes compete against each other. The CHA students will now represent Oklahoma in the national finals in Philadelphia on May 6th. Congratulations and God’s speed to those talented students.


Memberships continue to pour in from all parts of the state. In fact we even have two dues paying members from out of state. One lives in Colorado and the other in Michigan. Both of these fellows have been involved with OCPAC from its conception and believe in our efforts. I want to extend an invitation for Oklahomas to continue to expand our membership. Your dues are what allows us to support truly conservative candidates for office and attempt to hold the RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) accountable for the conservative rhetoric they speak when they want our votes. Please see below for instructions on joining.

I look forward to seeing everyone this Wednesday.
