Editorial: Beacon endorses Rep. Bridenstine, McCloud, McCay

 

Here are our recommendations for the June 28 primary. In some races, we have no recommendation because there are at least two good candidates or there are no good candidates. U.S. Representative, District 1, Republican Jim Bridenstine has done what he said he would do in his first campaign. He has used his military expertise […]

Editorial: Chamber wants liberal publicity

 

The Tulsa Regional Chamber, which has a large percentage of its funding from Tulsa’s hotel tax, commissioned a report that the recent session of the Oklahoma Legislature produced $50 million in bad publicity for the state.

Editorial: Parade recruits homosexuals

 

The “gay pride parade” in Tulsa is all about recruitment.

Editorial: True legacy of Mohammed Ali

 

Mohammad Ali was a great boxer. That’s about it.

Editorial: Republican leaders will borrow $125,000,000.00 for the Capitol

 

You can’t tax your way to prosperity and you can’t borrow your way to prosperity. The Republican-run Oklahoma Legislature and Gov. Mary Fallin don’t understand that concept. In 2014, the Legislature passed a $125,000,000.00 bond issue to restore the aging State Capitol building after decades of almost no maintenance when the Democrats controlled the state […]

Editorial: Tulsa World prints an atheist ad that twists verses from the Bible

 

One of the lessons taught by the propagandists in Nazi Germany during World War II was that when you lie, tell the biggest lie you can. That just what the Freedom From Religion Foundation did when it purchased a full-page ad from the liberal Tulsa World and tried to make a case that the Bible […]

Letter to the editor: Atomic bombs

    

There is an eternal principle set forth in inspired scripture. It is that whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was the harvest of seed sown on Pearl Harbor President Obama is ignorantly wrong to say that death fell from the sky. He should ask the United […]

Editorial: Re-elect State Rep. Michael Rogers

 

State Rep. Michael Rogers is a man of conviction. A former educator, Rogers has already made a deep impression in the House of Representatives because of his willingness to study issues and his resolve not to back down in the face of difficult decisions.
