Your Privacy For Sale

The Watchman

All of us are aware that it takes a lot of money to run a political campaign. The amounts are staggering at times. What we don't realize is the extent that politicians will go to in order to raise the funds to get themselves re-elected. Many of us are also aware that a select few companies were allowed to access the browser history of your computers in order to fashion advertisements that would be more directed towards you as an individual. Well hang on to your hats. The advertising game just made a big change and you are about to be flooded with directed ads. Recently President Trump signed into law a bill that authorized all internet providers to access and sell your browser history to firms that would like to direct advertising to you. That bill did come with a price. We will give you an idea of the cost in this report.

The first documented evidence we found of this pay for play scheme came with this report Here's how much Comcast paid members of Congress to sell your browser history . In this report you will find the name of every single member of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate that represents the state of Oklahoma. You'll also find the amount ComCast paid for their vote. Folks this is just from one company. The number of other companies involved has not been identified but the total amount could be staggering. The Oklahoma Federal delegation sold your privacy to fill their campaign coffers.

Since we consider this as basically accepting a bribe, or selling a vote, we wanted to be absolutely certain that we had our facts correct in this report. We went to the voting records section at on each individual and we verified their vote on SJ Res 34. This Resolution was providing for congressional disapproval of the rule submitted by the Federal Communications Commission relating to the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and other Telecommunications Services.

We began with the House of Representatives in the 1st District Jim Bridenstein. He accepted $1,000.00. He has indicated that he will not seek another term in office so we are really at a loss as to why he accepted any amount at all. He voted Yea on the passage of this resolution. You can see his vote here Jim Bridenstine's Voting Records - The Voter's Self Defense System - Vote Smart.

We next went to the 2nd Congressional District and Representative Markwayne Mullins. He cost them a bundle at $47,250.00. You can see the way he voted here Markwayne Mullin's Voting Records - The Voter's Self Defense System - Vote Smart. That is surreal. He sells your privacy down the drain and still has time to come back to Oklahoma and make commercials for his business.

We next went to the 3rd Congressional District and Frank Lucas. He cost them $14,500.00. Not even close to what Mr. Mullin took in, but never the less a bribe. You can see his voting record here Frank Lucas' Voting Records - The Voter's Self Defense System - Vote Smart. He voted yea.

We next went to the 4th Congressional District and Tom Cole. He only cost them $14,000.00. We saved you the hassle of looking up his voting record and posted here Tom Cole's Voting Records - The Voter's Self Defense System - Vote Smart. He also voted yea on the bill.

We next went to the 5th Congressional District and Steve Russell's voting record. Here is what we found
Steve Russell's Voting Records - The Voter's Self Defense System - Vote Smart. It cost ComCast $16,625.00 for his vote. One would almost think he was selling his military experience as well as his vote in the House of Representatives. He too voted yea.
We next went to Senator James Lankford's voting record. You can see the record at this link James Lankford's Voting Records - The Voter's Self Defense System - Vote Smart. It cost ComCast $21,000.00 to buy his vote. One would think that an individual that was employed for such a long time at a Religious Camp for our youth would conduct themselves better. This just proves that there is a little larceny in everyone's heart.

We next went to Senator Inhofe's voting record. You can see the record at this link Jim Inhofe's Voting Records - The Voter's Self Defense System - Vote Smart. Out of all seven of the Oklahoma delegation representing us in D.C., Senator Inhofe received the most from ComCast. It cost them $38,000.00 for his vote. Is it any wonder that the corporations run America and not the people?

Then we found this interesting article We found this to be particularly interesting since it comes at a time when Congress is taking a two week Easter vacation yet has failed to repeal Obamacare or pass a budget. This is only further proof that they are way over paid for the amount of work they do.

In closing we can say this is from one company that they have sold their votes to. The amount of cash they have collected from the other internet providers must be staggering. This is further evidence that the career politicians that haunt the corridors of the nation's capital have made a conscious decision to no longer work for we the people, and are now working for the corporations here in the states. Every single one of them should be fired when they are next up for re-election. Not one single person is worthy of a vote from a citizen of the state of Oklahoma. They too are owned and operated by special interest groups.
