“It is clean and it is the future of energy production,” Perlmutter wrote on his website. “Until the Tea Party took over this has always been a simple, noncontroversial tax credit.”

Thus far, both Congressmen Markwayne Mullins and Jim Bridenstine have voted as candidate Mullins and Bridenstine campaigned. Frank Lucas and Tom Cole have morphed into Progressive Republicans and could care less if they bankrupt America. Each only want a slice of the bacon. James Lankford is undergoing growing pains and is having trouble making a decision if he wants to be a conservative or progressive.
Send Mullins and Bridenstine a note of thanks, Lankford a note of encouragement, Cole and Lucas a note which might encourage them to retire.
Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn have just been voted 15th and 13th most conservative in the U.S. Senate.
Voting records will continue to be posted on the Update.
Karl Rove wants to marginalize Tea Party candidates and elect those he believes to be best qualified. What an idiot….. his candidates have done a masterful job of credit card economics – spend, borrow and debt. Progressive Republicans have done as much damage to the country as Liberal Democrats and Rove could care no more about changing the direction of the country than does Obama.
What do you think?
I have had this discussion numerous times at coffee shops and lunch tables as to the effect of Tea Party support for a candidate and nearly always what I perceived as the better candidate - principled, free markets, constitutional, rugged individualism and defense of liberty – losses to a compromised progressive Republican in the primary election.
It is easy to understand why the progressive Democrats or progressive Republicans - the D.C. brokers of power and corruption - would choose to support policies that grow and expand the size and scope of government. Make no mistake, candidates understand that most of America is willing to trade candy store goodies for a vote……ensuring re-election and membership in the D.C. good ole boys and girls club.

Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) issued the following statement in response to the Obama administration’s proposals:
“The constitution was not written by the government to tell the people what rights they had. The constitution was written by the people to limit the government’s power. What the Obama administration is proposing in potential legislative actions and executive orders is a violation of 2nd amendment rights which guarantees us the right to keep and bear arms.
In Oklahoma there are many law abiding citizens who hunt, fish and keep guns for self-protection. The last thing we need to do infringe upon the rights of those citizens. Criminals who chose to break the law will not be deterred by any number of executive actions. These rights are a fundamental way of life for people in my District and across the United States.
The President is politicizing a national tragedy to impose his own personal agenda. This is outrageous and an outright assault on civil liberties. I strongly oppose restricting the rights of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms and will do everything I can to protect our second amendment rights.”
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) is working with Democratic senators on a bill that would mandate background checks for all gun buyers, with some limited exception. In an interview Friday with a Tulsa television station, Coburn said he is working with Sens. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Joe Manchin III (D-W. Va.) on plans to keep weapons away from criminals and the mentally ill.

Sustainable development is a plan adopted by the United Nations to fundamentally change the behavior of humans for the purpose of incorporating economic and environmental guidelines to achieve social equity, redistribution of wealth and biodiversity perpetuation.
A 1987 report (Our Common Future) by Gro Harland Brundtland – VP of the World Socialist Party – first mentioned the term Sustainable Development in a report produced by The United Nations World Commission on Environmental and Development. Sustainable Development became official UN policy (1992) with a document called UN Sustainable Development, Agenda 21, today known as Agenda 21. Continue reading
January 23rd is the awaited day for Hillary to tell us what happened when four Americans were murdered in Benghazi
Some of you will remember that this Administration attempted to cover-up a terrorist attack on our consulate a week before the election with a concocted lie by many of the most powerful departments in our government including our: President, State Department, National Security Advisor, Defense Department, CIA, United Nations Ambassador and the dweebs who are spokespersons for the departments including a White House Press Secretary and complicit media hell-bent on seeing that President Obama be re-elected.
