Our 12 noon luncheon for Wednesday, July 18th will be held at
Italiano’s restaurant, 4801 North Lincoln in OKC.  We will be back to
interviewing candidates this week. From here on out the candidates
that come before our members will be in the general election in
November to take on a Democrat. This is the main purpose of OCPAC to
find and help elect truly conservative candidates with a Judeo/
Christian world view as they run for the state legislature.

For our meeting one week from Wednesday we will have a world renown
expert on the progressive movement speak at OCPAC. His name Trevor
Loudon from Christ Church in New Zealand. He is the gentleman who has
done so much work in exposing people like Van Jones and others that
President Obama brought into his machine to do his damaging work in
his efforts to change America.

Mr. Loudon will also be speaking at the High Noon Club THIS Friday. In
addition, he will be speaking to the Grady County TEA Party this
Saturday evening July 21st, 7:00 p.m. at Trinity Baptist Church, 428
East Almar in Chickasha. Following his presentation he will be
available to sign his book, BARACK OBAMA AND THE ENEMIES WITHIN.


I believe this will be the 7th annual Reclaiming America For Christ
Conference (the first 4 conferences were Reclaiming Oklahoma for
Christ). All meetings will be held at First Baptist Church in Moore,
301 NE 27th street (about 2 blocks East of I-35 on 27th).  Following
are the times and speakers, though I don‘t know the schedules for each
speaker at this time:

Wednesday evening, July 25th from 7 until 9:30 p.m.
Thursday evening, July 26th from 6:30 until 10:00 p.m.
Friday afternoon, July 27th from 3:30 until 5:30 p.m.
Friday evening, July 27th from 6:30 until 10:00 p.m.

Speakers will be:

Dr. John Morris, President of Creation Research Institute in Dallas.
Dr. Morris will be speaking on Creation Science.

Dr. Scott Lively, President of Abiding Truth Ministries. Dr. Lively is
an attorney, author and lecturer. He is widely recognized as the
foremost authority in America on the subject of the Homosexual Agenda.
He is also the co-author of the Book, THE PINK  SWASTIKA which
documents the power of the homosexual movement in the Nazi party. Did
you know that one group of homosexuals in Germany killed off a rival
group of homosexuals. I am very impressed with Dr. Lively, as I have
heard him speak several times.

Michael Chapman, founder of American Heritage Research. The U.N. has
declared 2005-2015, “The Decade of Education for Sustainable
Development.” Chapman will speak on Agenda 21 in American education.

Paul diamond, an attorney who lives and practices in the United
Kingdom. His specialty is religious liberty. Diamond will be speaking
on the Criminalization of Christianity in the UK, the implications of
Islam and Sharia Law in the UK and what is happening in America.

Jerry Tuma, is the host of the nationally syndicated financial show,
Smart Money. A Milton Friedman disciple, Tuma is an author, financial
planner, and nationally acclaimed speaker on the economy and
investment markets. He will be speaking on the coming economic crisis
and what you can do to prepare.

The admission is free, though a love offering will be taken to help
defray the costs. For more information log on to www.ra4c.org or call
(405) 348-1745, or (405) 521-08000. I will try to have the times each
speaker will be presenting for next week’s e-mail.


Last week our members voted to determine the outstanding lawmakers as
well as those who won the dubious RINO award. Senate Lawmaker of the
year goes to Greg Treat (R-OKC) Senator Treat had a session score of a
90 and a lifetime score of an 85. The Senate runner-up for lawmaker of
the year goes to Anthony Sykes (R-Moore). Senator Sykes had a session
score of 100 and a lifetime score of a 93. Senate Freshman of the year
goes to Ralph Shortey (R-OKC). Senator Shortey’s session score was an
80 and his lifetime score is a 77. The winner of this year’s RINO
award in the Senate goes to Greg Childers (R-Del City) with the paltry
score of a 50 for the session and a 50 lifetime score. Runner up for
this year’s RINO award goes to David Holt (R-OKC) with a session score
of a 56 and a lifetime score of a 58.

In the House, Lawmaker of the year goes to Charles Key (R-OKC) with a
session score of 100 and a lifetime score of an 83. Runner-up for
lawmaker of the year goes to Jason Murphy (R-Guthrie) with a session
score of 100 and a lifetime score of 100. House freshman of the year
goes to Tom Newell (R-Seminole) with a session score of 100 and a
lifetime score of a 90. The winner of this year’s RINO award in the
House goes to Lisa Billy (R-Lindsey) with a session score of a 56 and
a lifetime score of a 57. While we appreciate Representative Billy’s
strong stand on life issues and while that is a very important issue,
there is much more to being a conservative than just being pro-life.
After 8 years in the legislature, a 57 lifetime score is pitiful.
Runner-up for the RINO award goes to Kris Steele with a session score
of a 60 and a lifetime score of a 63. Steele is term limited out of
office. While he is a wonderfully nice fellow, he might best be
described as a Christian socialist. So typical of lawmakers who fail
to distinguish between the proper roll of government versus what
family, friends, civic organizations churches should be doing in the
lives of people.


On Monday, Governor Fallin was to stop in Detroit to speak with
representatives of the big 3 auto makers (Ford, Chrysler and
Government Motors) to urge them to manufacture cars and trucks which
will use Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). The governors of several states
are urging these vehicles be built at a reasonable cost with the
promise that state fleets will switch to these new vehicles and then
the private market is expected to follow with greater demand.

What I don’t know is what kind of CNG vehicles Governor Fallin is
wanting produced? If it is a CNG vehicle only, then that is a serious

Because of the high pressure of CNG, the fuel tanks have to be strong,
which makes them have a limited size in a trade off of significant
weight. Because of the limited tank capacity, many CNG vehicles tend
to have a rather short range, perhaps a 150 miles or less. I believe
it was the city of Edmond that halted plans to convert 2 of their
public transportation buses as they can’t run their route on one day’s
tank of CNG.

While the number of stations with CNG pumps is rapidly increasing,
perhaps up to 80 in Oklahoma by the end of the year, they don’t fill
as fast at the pump as gasoline powered vehicles, which means we could
find it difficult and time consuming to fill up as more and more CNG
vehicles are on the road. Another problem is with cross country trips.
While Oklahoma is busy building an infrastructure to have stations
placed through out the state, many states lag far behind and as such
it could be risky to strike out across this vast land with a CNG only

Of course the real solution to the short range is to have duel fuel
system vehicles which burn both CNG and unleaded gasoline. Most of the
vehicles having conversion kits installed in them today run on CNG or
gasoline. While the conversion kits are rather expensive (8 to 14
thousand dollars) for most passenger vehicles or light trucks, it only
takes a flip of a switch to change over from CNG to gasoline.

If these are the type of vehicles Governor Fallin is urging to be
built for just a little more than a gasoline only vehicle, then I
believe we have a winner of an idea. But if she is insisting on CNG
only, that is a problem. I just wonder if the captains of Oklahoma’s
natural gas industry who have contributed so heavily to her election
efforts will allow her to petition for duel fuel vehicles or if they
will be so greedy as to insist on CNG only?

I look forward to seeing everyone this Wednesday.
