Rosino joins the State Senate

 

Paul Rosino is now officially on the job as State Senator for District 45.   The Oklahoma City Republican was sworn in during a ceremony at the Capitol November 22 as friends, family and other supporters looked on from the Senate gallery. “I am extremely grateful to the citizens of District 45 for entrusting me to […]

Editorial: Fake conservatives vote for taxes

 

Some “conservative” state lawmakers can’t handle the heat from agency heads, bureaucrats, chamber types and the liberal media. They fold like a cheap tent when their stated values are challenged. In November, Gov. Mary Fallin, Republican leaders and Democrat leaders tried their hardest to enact the biggest tax increase in state history. Even though revenue […]

Editorial: Homosexual conspiracy of silence

 

Why did Republican Brian O’Hara lose to Democrat Allison Ikley-Freeman in the November 14 special election in Senate District 37 in Tulsa and Sand Springs? The biggest reason is a conspiracy of silence by the liberal media. That happened because most voters – and lots of Republicans who didn’t vote – didn’t know of Ikley-Freeman’s […]

Editorial: Time to drain the swamp in DC

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnnell, R-Kentucky, should be the poster child for the effort to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C. When a photo of Democrat Sen. Al Franken surfaced that showed him molesting the young girlfriend of an American serviceman aboard an airplane, McConnell mildly suggested that Congress investigate. More women surfaced and spoke […]

Christian nonprofits need your support at Christmas

    

This has been a tough year for nonprofit organizations. When hurricanes hit South Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and other places, Americans responded with donations of money, goods and personal service. It was the right thing to do and it’s what Americans have always done. We are the most generous people on the planet. But here’s […]

‘Freestuffland’ may be coming to a neighborhood near you

    

Have you heard of that new city, Freestuffland?  If not, you probably will soon if those who are in charge of planning policies get their way. An astounding article appeared on the Planetizen website this month entitled, “The Truth about Creating Policy: It can’t be Evidence-Based.” The opener of the article read, “You’re up there […]

The Governor Is Right

    

The Wall Street Journal recently interviewed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos at the CEO Council. The Journal noted that education is consistently a top concern of executives at the paper.  Preparing youth for the jobs of today, as well as the evolving workplace of tomorrow is a challenge that many business leaders think we are […]

Sexual abuse accusations might be true but they can be manufactured

    

The unusually downright dirty campaign tactics of 2016 have certainly been carried over to the numerous special election campaigns so far this year. And the major – and sometimes local – media has not been exempt from the improper assistance to one side or  the other, mostly in favor of those of the C/S philosophy. […]

A snow globe, Christmas cookies and love

    

I don’t remember when or where we purchased it: a small plastic snow globe with a red base, a plastic dome, and a snowman and a tablespoon of artificial snow inside. When you push a button, a fan blows and the snow spins around as Christmas music plays. I bought this globe a long time […]

We can’t know the history of our climate

    

In November, French President Emmanuel Macron told the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany, that France would cover the cost of U.S. donations to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that President Donald Trump has vowed to cancel. Macron demonstrated that he does not understand the true nature of the IPCC when […]
