The Block Candidacy For Lt. Gov.


THERE IS A CANDIDATE FOR LT. GOVERNOR
That is Actually a Very Good Choice
THE WATCHMAN

 There are many times when a candidate runs for office that they are completely ignored. Today we bring you a textbook example of one such candidate. This gentleman has been ignored by most of the main stream media. We found only one blogger, two newspapers and one television station that have bothered to interview him. We will not make a recommendation for any candidate; however, his voice deserves to be heard.

We first learned of this individual from this article. Although not directly mentioned by name, it was an incentive to push us into looking at the fourth candidate. We were able to find a lot of good useful information on him.

The candidacy for the office of Lt. Governor was put into further detail in this article from the muskogeephoenix.com. You can read the article here. They have some good information on the candidate.

Kevin McDugle You're No Longer A Drill Instructor

KEVIN MCDUGLE, YOU'RE NO LONGER A DRILL INSTRUCTOR

THE WATCHMAN

It's not often that we report on two bad actors on the same subject. This is one of those times. Last week we presented a report on "Bullies in the House." This report will show you the tale of the accomplice to the first gentleman we talked about. He was mentioned in that report as well. In this case some of his military training was abused.


This started with this this report from the from the publication Non-Doc. The report would be correct or even avoided had these two Representatives done their homework. If this is indicative of their leadership skills while in the military, it's a very bad example presented.

Legislators As Ashley Madison Clients


POLITICAL LUNACY HAS TAKEN OVER AT THE STATE CAPITAL

THE WATCHMAN

Politicians can be snakes in the grass at times. We are about to present to you the case of one of those politicians that by all accounts condemns the leadership of the House of Representatives and proves that the House Ethics Committee is nothing more than a battering ram to be used against those who don't agree with the Speaker.

We have been aware of this situation for some time now, but what has really brought it to a tipping point is this story in the Muskogee Politico. His opponent in the primary election has filed a challenge against Mr. McDugle claiming that he has failed to meet the residency requirements to run for that office. From the information that we have obtained he may be correct.

Then we found this article from 2017. We would urge our readers to open this link and read the article for themselves. In it you'll find a copy of the actual Divorce Petition where Mr. McDugle is accused of adultery, basically mentally abusing his children. It is asked that he seeks counseling for his mental health issues on page five of the divorce application. Could this be the reason he left the military? Is this another case of un-diagnosed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? We think it's only a part of the problem at play here.

Rep. Josh West: The Man With No Self control


Josh West: The man with no neck and no self control

FAILURE BEGETS FAILURE
THERE IS A BULLY OR TWO IN THE HOUSE LEADERSHIP
AND THE SPEAKER LETS THEM GET AWAY WITH IT
THE WATCHMAN

A few weeks ago, there was a survey that asked a simple question. That question was "Is it better to have a former military individual in an elected office or not." As we have a retired military individual on our staff we asked him to respond to that question. His answer was "Not necessarily." With a former military or even a retired military individual you must look at their military background to consider their fitness for office. It is his considered opinion that any military personnel that have seen front line combat duty and have been injured during that time is in need of long term assistance to overcome the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that they deny that they have.

Okla Legislators Raised Taxes On Those Who Can Least Afford It.

LIKE THIEVES IN THE NIGHT
OUR LEGISLATORS RAISED TAXES ON THOSE WHO CAN LEAST AFFORD IT
THE WATCHMAN
Why is it when politicians do something they know the citizens will disapprove of, they always do it at the end of a day and leave hoping that nobody has heard about their decision to put the shaft to the working poor and middle class again? Could it be that the legislators are financially better off than the rest of us? Yes, we do remember a time a few years back when they tried to raise the bar so high that the average citizen could never afford to run for office. That was swiftly shut down. Instead of being honest with themselves and the citizens of this state they came like thieves in the night and robbed the citizens by adding additional taxes on several items just to feed a bunch of greedy school teachers whose results are far from stellar.

OKGOP Politicians: "Pay No Attention To That Platform!"


THE GOP IN OKLAHOMA
APPARENTLY DOESN'T BELIEVE IN THE PLATFORM
OR THEY ARE JUST TO LAZY TO DO THE WORK
THE WATCHMAN

It appears that the legislature has a spending problem. They want to spend the money that they have been giving as corporate welfare on other items but are afraid of upsetting their bosses and controllers over at the Oklahoma State Chamber of Commerce. We are fully aware of how much the state spends annually on corporate welfare by the courtesy of the Lt. Governor. We spend $6.2 billion dollars a year just to keep these clowns in office. Why are we letting them get away with this? Now they want to pass a measure that will require a vote of the people to lower the required percentage of yes votes in order to raise your taxes.

The reason this will have to go to the citizens for a vote is because it is an amendment to the States Constitution. In March of 1992 a special election was conducted that included a Citizens Initiated Ballot measure. This measure was State Question 640. It amended Article 5, Section 33 of the Oklahoma Constitution to add restrictions on how revenue bills can become law. Under SQ 640, a revenue bill can only become law if (1)it is approved by a 3/4th vote of both legislative chambers and is signed by the Governor or (2)it is referred by the legislature to a vote of the people at the next general election and receives majority approval. Since it's passage only one state question to raise taxes has been approved.

Mary's Little Lamb Wants To Rule


 WITH THIS RECORD
DO YOU WANT HIM RUNNING THE STATE GOVERNMENT
 THE WATCHMAN
 What better time to make a run for a statewide office in Oklahoma. The citizens are tired of the eight years of the Fallin administration even as she tries to stumble across the line demanding that taxes be raised on the working class of Oklahoma. She's hoping, as are the House and Senate, that we will forget the reason that Lt.Gov. Todd Lamb resigned from her cabinet. It was the raising of taxes. He resigned to start his campaign for Governor because the Governor wanted to remove those exemptions. In fact, Todd Lamb went on record saying, "$6.7 billion in sales tax exemptions were handed out, we need to look at these and get them removed." Yet he is not who the story is about tonight. We are doing a story about a political outsider trying to ride the tails of President Trumps victory into office.

 The individual we're talking about is Kevin Stitt. We first became aware of this candidate from this article by Jamison Faught of the Muskogeepolitico.com. We stored the information in our files as it appeared we might have a viable non-establishment Republican candidate
