Vote for Rep. Jim Bridenstine

 

Four years ago, U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine said he would not vote for John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Even though he was threatened and told he would lose key committee assignments, Bridenstine stayed true to his word and voted against the Republican Speaker. And he lost no committee assignments. Bridenstine is running for […]

Vote for Tom McCloud in D-67

 

The Oklahoma House of Representatives needs commonsense, conservative leaders with business savvy to navigate the state through tough economic times. Tom McCloud is the right man for the job in House District 67 in South Tulsa. McCloud is the founder and publisher of Community Spirit magazine, a unique Christian publication that has chronicled the achievements […]

The truth about vaccinations

 

Progressives put their social re-engineering over common sense and science. A good example is the furor over mandated vaccinations. The liberal line is that everyone must be vaccinated for every known disease to protect not only themselves but those whom they contact. That is not true. People like Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D., say that unvaccinated […]

Letter to the editor: Need new state license plates

    

Praise the Lord that Tulsa has a Christian voice in the Tulsa Beacon! I am most appreciative of its overall news coverage plus all the regular submissions by various noted writers. In reference to a recent article stating “Oklahoma needs new license plates,” I will second that suggestion for the following reason: Oklahoma needs a […]

Letter to the editor: America’s judgment is coming

    

America continues to deny God and The Word of God.  These haters of God continue to deny the historical fact that America was founded by people who believed in the Living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  The God who said that in the beginning, He created the Heavens and the Earth and […]

Letter to the editor: Looting money from the rich

    

It seems that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are telling us they want to take money from the rich and help the “working people.” History teaches that is another name for looting. It looks like “working people” – from their viewpoint – are government workers and members of powerful unions. The problem is these so-called […]

Increasing alcohol consumption

 

Some legislators want to make it easier to get drunk in Oklahoma. Authored in the House by Rep. Glen Mulready, R-Tulsa, Senate Joint Resolution 68, would loosen up the liquor laws and make it easier for people to drink and drive. Now, you can buy cold beer with a 3.2-percent alcohol content in a convenience […]

Protecting freedom draws fire

 

The people of America and courageous lawmakers are rising up all over the country to say no to the onslaught of the homosexual agenda. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed HB 1523, the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act. This law means that the state cannot violate the conscience of business owners or individuals […]

Cutting public school budgets

 

Public schools are gearing up for budget cuts. Because of the drop in the price of oil, state revenues are down. A projected $1.3 billion shortfall for the 2016-2017 fiscal year could easily turn into a $1.5 billion deficit (or more). Look for the liberal media to say “The sky is falling!” Catoosa Public Schools […]

Media’s mythical war on women

 

The liberal news media, in an effort to push the mythical Republican “war on women,” are quick to point out Donald Trump’s politically incorrect comments on women. This is exactly what the Democrats want. The only reason Hillary Clinton is the Democrat frontrunner is because she is a woman and liberals believe that more women […]
