Free Legislative Junkets For Selling Out The Oklahoma Electoral College


Sen. James Leewright
WHO IN OKLAHOMA WANT TO SILENCE YOUR VOTE?  THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT IT? 

THE WATCHMAN

Tonight, we bring you the third installment of those who wish to silent your vote. District 12 Senator James Leewright is the subject of tonight’s presentation.

We began by going to his official biography page. You can find it by opening this link. We will give him credit for being a little more open than some of his colleagues in the Senate. After reading it, it became difficult to draw conclusions on the man with an open mind. We will say this much. His biography displays a tendency to lean towards the business community rather than his constituents.

We next went to his campaign web site located here. Although this is relatively good site, it’s lacking in something that is vital to the knowledge of the voters. We were unable to locate any trace about where he stood on anything that is an issue the voters would be concerned about. We found this to be true throughout our investigation. This allows him to say what ever he feels the voters are concerned about without being pinned down to his written word. Another word for such actions is simply cowardly lies.

THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT IT: PART TWO


THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT IT:
PART TWO


THE WATCHMAN
This week we bring you the second installment of those accepting trips from the National Popular Vote lobbyist. Yes, they have a lobbyist pushing it at the state capital. Once again, we received some good information on the subject from the Muskogeepolitico.org. What we found was that some of the senior levels of politicians are not for this proposal.

We’ll begin by going to Lt.Governor Matt Pinnell. You can read his comments by going to this link. He is a long-time opponent pf the National Popular Vote and remains stead fast in his opposition.

Another of the state leaders opposed to the National Popular Vote is the Senate-pro tem Senator Treat.
You can find Senator Treats comments by going to this link here. He too is a long-time opponent to the effort.

The Oklahoma Republicans Who Cozy Up to the National Popular Vote


WHO IN OKLAHOMA WANT TO SILENCE YOUR VOTE
THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT IT

-THE WATCHMAN
We read a disturbing article the other day by Mr. Jamison Faught of the MuskogeePolitico.com. Even though as recently indicated on Friday the 13th of September of 2019, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg, the most liberal of the 9 Justices, considered doing away with the electoral college was absurd. Now they don’t come out and flat say that they want to give away your vote or even do away of the electoral college, but that’s what in affect what the national popular vote would do. It’s a blatant attempt to give all elections to the liberal east and west coast by saying your representatives on the electoral college must vote for the person running for the Office of the President who receives the most votes regardless of how your state voted.

Quoting from the article “The legislature is very concerned about voter apathy and declining participation. I told them in 2015 that elections need to be meaningful for Oklahomans” says David Van Risseghem, editor of SoonerPolitics.org. It still is today.

ANOTHER FAKE REPUBLICAN SHOWS HIS TRUE COLORS



THE WATCHMAN

From time to time we come across am elected official that goes so far against what the party is doing, that we just have to ask them to leave the party. We came across one such Republican traitor last week. Once again it concerns the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. The law he wants to see off the books is the recently passed “Constitutional Carry” law.

What made us take a look at this individual was this article in the Muskogeepolitico.com. We have here an elected Republican official who not only spoke at a rally to repeal the law, but also had the nerve and audacity to misrepresent the legislation to his hometown City Counsel in order to get them to join in the petition against the Constitutional Carry law.

We know that this is nothing more than a political stunt started by Representative Lowe to gain name recognition. In actuality we can say, by this example, that in reality all this petition was for was to split the state much like what the Democratic National party is doing to this country. This isn’t being done to protect the innocent at all. What is it that is causing these allegedly highly educated Representatives don’t understand about the phrase in part: shall not be infringed” do they fail to understand. As the saying goes “You can’t fix stupid.”

VIOLENCE IN AMERICA WHAT ARE THE REAL NUMBERS



- THE WATCHMAN

The liberal press is starting to get involved in the gun debate. Time after time they claim those innocent people who own firearms and the NRA are to blame for the devastating number of mass shootings that this nation suffers. They imply that the United States has the largest number of mass shootings in the world. A quick trip to Google and a little research would always find the untruth in their statements. We could care less what they tell you, because we will give you the truth of the problem.

What brought this story to our attention was this article. Although well meaning in nature, it fails to provide its readers with all the facts. It fails to mention the number of incidents occurred in zones clearly marked as weapons not allowed. Depending on what government agency you decide to get your information from, that number is 86% using the Census Bureau statistics or 94% based on F.B.I statistics. It is believed that the shooters use these areas because of the lack of protection available to the citizens. What is truly remarkable is that with all the firearms in citizens hands, firearms are not the leading weapons used in murders.

We did a little research on the subject and found this article. It clearly states that according to the F.B.I. three times as many murders are committed with knives rather than firearms. Are we to become like London where knives are prohibited to the ;aw abiding citizens? I don’t think so. That would be ludicrous.

A CONFLICT OF INTEREST IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM



THERE IS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST
IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM OR JUST THE APPEARANCE OF ONE

- THE WATCHMAN
Often times are done within government agencies and private associations. The question is whether or not they represent a conflict of Interest. Outward appearance would tend to lean towards there being a conflict of interest when they are not. Two such entities are the District Attorney’s Council, a state agency, and the District Attorney’s Association, a private entity. The answer will surprise all.
What got us interested in this subject was article. There are two groups in Oklahoma that we are going to talk about. One is the Oklahoma District Attorney Council, a state agency, and the Oklahoma District Attorney’s Association, a private organization. The first group is a state agency and subject to the open meetings act. The second group being a private association is not subject to the open meetings act. Because both groups are comprised of the same individuals, has made people a little un-trusting of both groups. We can understand why.
Here’s a brief summary of how things go. There is a call to order, introductions, get down to do the business scheduled votes and adjournment. They all get themselves some fresh coffee and five minutes later They start the meeting of the second group, a private organization meaning the meeting of this group is behind closed doors and the business they do is private.

MS13 Illegal Aliens: "Here To Do Jobs We Won't Do"?


ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN OKLAHOMA WITHOUT
CRIMINAL RECORDS FACE DEPORTATION


- THE WATCHMAN - 
 
The one thing we seldom do, and probably do more of, is hitting journalist with a report that flat out shows political correctness. The journalism community, whether it be print, televised, on the radio or in an online forum should never include Politically correct terminology. Unfortunately, today we live in a country and state that is to obsessed with being politically correct. This week we had a story cross our desk that shows how political correctness hurts America and Oklahoma. Sadly, we will present it to you.
 
The State of Oklahoma is a state of laws. The United States is a nation of laws. People are expected to follow them, but always break a few. We find incredibly disturbing that most politicians and a vast majority of journalist fail to understand that crossing or border is a crime. If you don’t mind a dry read and want to learn the facts on a subject we would recommend that you start here. These are the statutes on immigration. Look close enough and you will find that there are even provisions that would put a politician in jail for making the area the control into a sanctuary sight. The system isn’t broken, the truth is that neither party wants to do anything about it due to cheap labor that the opened and unsecured border provides.
