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.

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.

After having failed to prevent out of control spending with their Fiscal Cliff and Sandy Relief posturing and votes, Republicans have adopted a new tactic and plan to extend the debt limit for only three months and give the Democrats time to pass a budget – something they have refused to do for more than 950 days.
Law requires that a budget be passed every year.
Republicans tell us – once passed – there will be a long term debt limit increase that is tied to spending cuts and should the Democrats fail to do so…..gasp……Congress will receive no pay.
Dr. Dewey thinks it would be wise to pass a budget and spending cuts before debt limit increases to determine the amount of money actually needed for running the country, but President Obama, who wants unlimited budget authority, says we are on the road to recovery and there is no spending problem. From what I have observed, Republicans agree and plan to help the President increase the debt from $16 trillion to $20 trillion.

Oklahoma House members voted on a Sandy relief package larded with pork and no budget offsets……..meaning more waste, debt, borrowing and spending by Congress.
Oklahoma legislators who could say no to business as usual were Congressmen Bridenstine, Mullin and Lankford.
Those Oklahoma Congressmen who voted yes to continue the path of waste, debt, borrow and spend were Lucas and Cole, two Oklahoma Congressmen who believe the same as President Obama……. there is no spending problem in Congress. Both have made a career of credit card economics to expand the scope and size of government.
We must clean up our own house before we can clean up the White House. We must rid ourselves of Lucas and Cole.
Just as promised, I am back to report if any of the pork was stripped from the Sandy relief package and the news is not good. Just as there was increased spending, new taxes and debt in the fiscal cliff vote, there is increased spending and debt in the Sandy bill. Both are larded with pork.
No pork was stripped from the Sandy or Fiscal Cliff legislation.
Both passed easily with bipartisan support of Congress. The Sandy relief package passed today in the house with a vote of 241 – 180 and now goes to the Senate for approval. Little opposition is expected in the Senate.
Oklahoma votes will be posted when available.
Now Republicans – after having postured, but relented to President Obama’s demands on both the Fiscal Cliff and Sandy legislation – are ready to move on to a new challenge and use their clout to prevent the President and Progressives from extending the debt limit without spending cuts.
We are told by establishment pundits that Boehner and McConnell now have leverage with the tax issue behind us and we can get down to the business of restoring American values of free markets, individual responsibility, Constitutional law and freedom.
I have my doubts that Boehner and McConnell are up to the task of promoting and articulating the politics of conservative Americans. Both have made a career of credit card economics to expand the size and scope of government.
Of course, Republicans in Congress, do not share my point of view, having re-elected Boehner and McConnell to their leadership posts.
Readers, we are in trouble and the people leading our side of the discussion have little interest in resolving the issues to restore the values which once identified us as American.
We’re in big trouble……pray hard!
