The Lankford Follies

 

WELCOME TO THE LANKFORD FOLLIES. 
YOU SHOULD BE GLAD HE ISN’T RUNNING THE STATE GOP
THE WATCHMAN
 
 
 
When people elect a person to represent them in the U.S. House or Senate, we expect them to represent us fully despite their individual personal believes especially during the times of a national crisis. When they allow their own beliefs to interfere with the welfare of the people, they represent then other elements are involved. It could be just their own beliefs, or it could be money for their next campaign. That is not what we are here to decide. This article is on some of the various ways that Senator Lankford has made critical errors that do not represent the values of Oklahomans.
 
We begin with this video from July 3rd of this year where he is walking back a previous statement he made about getting rid of Columbus day. We are not going to argue the point with him except to say both him and all of those arguing for getting rid of it leave one particularly important fact out. There is scientific evidence that the Vikings discovered America a few centuries before Columbus.
 
We next found this article where Senator Lankford criticized the President on the way he separated children from parents. You can read the article here. It seems to us that anyone with any cursory idea of the situation would realize that the family separation policy was initiated by the Obama administration. It happened while Senator Lankford was in office. Maybe he should study some of the last administrations directives to give him a better understanding.
 
We next went to this site and looked at his Wikipedia page. There is a lot of good information on this page. You can get a lot of information on his background.
 
We then found this article that shows that the Senator is against gun control and raising taxes. Both those items we can agree with him on.

THE GUN GRABBERS ALMANAC


THE GUN GRABBERS ALMANAC
HOW RELIABLE IS IT
THE WATCHMAN
There is no denying that racial tensions have been high across the nation for the last ten days or longer. What many of you miss is that it is also undeniable that this tension is being stoked and used for political gain. The combination of the two has turned into a deadly affair for many police officers, store owners and individual innocent civilians across this nation. We are now hearing an even deadlier tone from the crowds. A tone that would call for the complete anarchy in this country. A tone based on a narrative that is broadcast and published daily by the mainstream media, and sadly it is pure propaganda.

For those of you who have not realized it yet, there is a massive power struggle going on in this country. It is not just between the Democrats and Republicans; it goes far beyond that. It is the deep desire to take guns away from ordinary citizens. That desire stems from an even deeper desire to control every aspect of your life. They do not want you to have liberty. They want you to do what you are told and shut up. Their biggest ally in their quest is the mainstream media. They will tell you what they want you to hear and not the truth in any matter.

Grabbing A Big Pay Raise AND A Personal (Campaign) Slush Fund



ON TOP OF A MASSIVE PAY RAISE, THEY NOW WANT TO BE ABLE TO SPEND CAMPAIGN FUNDS ON PERSONAL EXPENSES

THE WATCHMAN

We have always known that politics has always been a dirty business. If you ever wanted to know what was happening all you needed to do was follow the money. There was a time when influence was bought by corporations using their own money but now, here in Oklahoma, they have found a way to use the taxpayer's money to buy that influence. We honestly thought things could not get much worse, and thankfully, for this year anyway, they did not.

HAVE THEY NO SHAME?


IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC AND BUDGET CRISIS THE LEGISLATURE GIVES THEMSELVES
A HUNORMOUS PAY RAISE
HAVE THEY NO SHAME?
THE WATCHMAN
Many people in this nation feel that politicians turn a death ear to those they are supposed to serve. Politicians in turn do not understand why their constituents are not pleased with their performance. Those of us who study politics wonder why if people are so unhappy about their performance why they keep voting for them. What is particularly troubling is when they allow something to happen during a fiscal shortfall and claim there was nothing, they could do to stop it. The only people they are fooling are themselves.
What brought our attention to this story was this article from News Channel 9. Now here we are in the middle of a pandemic, thousands of people unemployed, scraping to get buy and our alleged leaders who are supposed to work for us are giving themselves a 35% pay raise. Have they earned it, not in our book. Do they deserve it? No way in hell. Could it have been stopped? Yes, if they had wanted to. If there was ever a reason to vote people out of office this is it. It appears that they feel that just because tax revenue is down, and the state's budget has been cut that they deserve a pay raise.

The Origins of Wuhan Flu


Wuhan Flue Origins
THE WATCHMAN

In this current pandemic we find ourselves in there are many rumors and tall tales of what is actually going on. Strange things are even happening in politics when you have two staunch anti- President Trump governors actually praising the president for all of the effort and assistance that is being put in to fight this illness.

So much is being said about this issue that it’s hard to know what the truth is and what is fiction. Those of us who do this everyday have a hard time distinguishing the truth from fiction. This story is about such a case. We will leave it to our readers to form their own opinion.

National Reaction To The Wuhan Flu


Wuhan Flu
The Nation Reacts
THE WATCHMAN

In the midst of the worst health crisis this nation has ever faced, the nation is struggling. Our government at all levels are taking extraordinary measures to help the citizens of this nation. Yet we look and see a nation in chaos. There is a simple reason for that. It is the lack of leadership from a vast majority of the alleged leaders at all levels of government. The news media is out there preaching the word of this being Armageddon when it’s not. There are far too many supposedly responsible elected officials and news agencies, from international to local, who are not being responsible when telling of the tale of this virus. We present to you a few highlights of their mis-adventures.

We will begin by putting before you what we feel is perhaps the most correct and important article reported since the outbreak started. The article which you can see here, states, and we’ll quote “The world’s leaders need to first and foremost calm people down,”. That, in our opinion, is the most profound and important statement made by anyone during this entire catastrophe. Leaders stop scaring people and start leading them.

Convention Of States: Are Our Legislators This Ignorant?


A LESSON ON GIVING AWAY YOUR VOTE:
ARE OUR LEGISLATORS REALLY THIS IGNORANT
We sometimes wonder why those we elect to represent us make such bad decisions. We always seem to send highly educated individuals to offices to represent us and we assume that because of their education that they are intelligent. That is the mistake the voters will make time and again. Just because they have a degree beside their name doesn’t mean they have the one vital element to make them intelligent. That one vital element is common sense. Ladies and gentlemen, it is glaringly absent in the Chamber of the Oklahoma State Senate and we shall show that here tonight.

What prompted our look into this story was an article from the www.muskogeepolitico.com which you can read here. Now there has been an attempt to get an Article 5 Convention of the States ongoing for several years now. We don’t consider even the remote possibility that they have the right to do so. What we question is the political climate in which they want to bring one up. We doubt that anyone would disagree that these are politically dangerous times in our great nation. We ask is it really the time to bring an untested, untried format of changing our Constitution to a convention where the only guidance given is that the Congress shall call for it? We think not.
