OK Dems Target YOUR Privacy

I am on the FreedomWorks email list. They know I live in Oklahoma. As such FreedomWorks tracks legislation in my fair State. When the legislation is antithetical to Conservative principles, they get the ball rolling to stiffen opposition to the Left-Wing agenda.

 

I have discovered the Oklahoma State House is preparing to vote on a Bill if passed, would make ALL your donation history a matter of public knowledge.

 

I don’t know about you, but I don’t Left Wing Nuts – like violent the anti-Trump rioters – to know where I live giving them the opportunity to harass me potentially violently to intimidate my Conservative stand, DO YOU?

 

The Bill is SB 579. A brief reading of the Bill indicates it is aimed at PACs, the State Dems (the Bill author is a Dem State Senator) want to know who and what every Joe-citizen is giving to. If you ask, “Why?” The possible answers lead to Big Brother monitoring of politically active citizens. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT!

 

Being a Joe-citizen myself, I am unsure of the proper citation Bill sections or sub-paragraphs or whatever. I think you can figure out from the labelling I have below:

 

SB 579; Section 2; B (1)

 

B (1) The name, address, occupation and employer of any person other than a political action committee making a contribution or contributions exceeding Fifty Dollars ($50.00) in value in the aggregate, the date and amount of any monetary or in-kind contributions made during the time period covered by the report, and the aggregate total of all contributions accepted from the person during the calendar year of the time period covered by the report;

 

Section 2; C (5)

 

(5) The name, address, occupation and employer of any Oklahoma resident making a contribution or contributions exceeding Fifty Dollars ($50.00) in value in the aggregate, the date and amount of any monetary or in-kind contributions made during the time period covered by the report, and the aggregate total of all contributions accepted from the person during the calendar year of the time period covered by the report.

 

NOT GOOD MY FELLOW OKLAHOMANS!

 

The FreedomWorks email provides a link for individuals to participate in emailing an Oklahoman’s State District Representative. Unfortunately, the form does not provide the name of your Representative according to the District you vote in.

 

Also in my personal search for my District and Representative, I discovered the dot-gov does not provide the Representative’s personal email.

 

What I did then was locate my District, find my Representative and then use the dot-gov email form with the FreedomWorks wording for the mass email to the dot-gov form with the proper information to get to my Representative.

 

To find the State District you live in, GO HERE to find the map you wish to use.

 

After you get your District number, you can GO HERE to find your current OK State Rep.

 

When you find your OK State Rep, simply click the email button and a form email will come up for you to enter your info and the FreedomWorks text to protest SB 579.

 

Below is the FreedomWorks email alert.

Liberal Extremists

For weeks, the radical left has terrorized Berkeley, California, turning that city into a war zone. They’ve smashed windows, hurled Molotov cocktails to set fires, and violently attacked conservatives like you, all to silence conservatives’ voices.

 

But if that’s not bad enough, several liberals in the Oklahoma House of Representatives want to make it easier for these extremists to target YOU! Don’t let that happen. Contact these state representatives right now. Tell them to protect your privacy rights. Tell them to stop SB 579 today.

 

John, if enacted, this bill will put your donation history online for the world to see, making you and your family an easy target for these extremists.

 

Don’t let them put your family at risk. Don’t let them pass this bill!

 

Send these state representatives a message right now. Tell them to protect your privacy rights. Tell them to stop SB 579 today.

 

For Freedom,

Stick with Bridenstine in Oklahoma


Jim Bridenstine 2

I live in Oklahoma. For voting purposes, I reside in Oklahoma’s First Congressional District. That means my Congressman is incumbent Jim Bridenstine – Republican. In the 2012 Primary Bridenstine upset then Republican incumbent John Sullivan who had been the District’s Representative since 2002.

 

Sullivan was considered a Conservative, but Bridenstine ran as a Tea Party candidate, meaning as an antiestablishment Republican. Bridenstine has stood true to the Conservative antiestablishment principles that enabled him to defeat Sullivan and eventually win the 2012 general election.

 

Now we are in 2016. Bridenstine is facing a Primary challenge from longtime Tulsa oilman Tom Atkinson. Atkinson definitely has money because he has run political ads promoting his Conservative credentials and his lifelong Tulsa heritage. I have checked out the Atkinson campaign website and he indeed has a Conservative heritage. … But, so had former Representative Sullivan.

 

For me, the term “longtime Tulsa oilman” signifies a Republican Establishment candidate. Again for me, that means he is a status quo kind of guy that Conservatives need to walk away from within the GOP. If the GOP Establishment gets its way, then it will be time for Conservatives to form their own Political Party to erase the Republican Party as did the Republicans did the Whig Party by 1860.

 

I am staying with Jim Bridenstine as my Congressman in the 1st Congressional District of Oklahoma. My fellow Conservatives, encourage Republican voters to stick with Bridenstine in the June 28th Primary so Conservative Independents can vote for him in the November 8th General Election.

FreedomWorks’ Congressman of the Month – Jim Bridenstine

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) was elected to the U.S. House of representatives in 2013 and represents Oklahoma’s First Congressional District. A military veteran, Rep. Bridenstine served nine years as an aviator for the United States Navy and experienced combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, he continues to serve in the National Guard.

 

Rep. Bridenstine isn’t one to stand down from a fight, especially if it is something he firmly believes is right. Upon entering Congress, Bridenstine’s first official vote was against John Boehner’s (R-OH) selection as Speaker of the House in 2013. He has been a member of the House Freedom Caucus, which aims to support, “open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty,” since its inception.

 

Overall, Rep. Bridenstine boasts a 95 percent lifetime rating on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard. His belief in free market values, entrepreneurship, and fiscal constraint are consistently evident with legislation he supports and introduces in Congress. He has voted to repeal Obamacare, to reduce federal spending, eliminate unnecessary federal programs at the Department of Energy, and to try and prevent the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from regulating nearly any waterway in the United States.

 

He has been a vocal opponent of increasing federal regulations on education, signing on as a co-sponsor of H. Res. 476, legislation which would denounce President Obama’s effort to impose Common Core on the states through applications for federal grants. In the energy sector, Rep. Bridenstine stands in support of American citizens and businesses rather than the federal government and its regulatory regime, as he sponsored H.R. 1487, the American Energy Renaissance Act, to prevent EPA regulations from shuttering the coal industry while also increasing American energy exports by lifting the crude oil export ban.

 

Rep. Bridenstine has also labored to increase public accountability of his fellow legislators. On January 6, 2016, he introduced H.R. 4328, the Read the Bill Act, which would “prohibit the consideration in the House or Senate of any legislation over 300 pages which has not been published online at least 72 working hours prior to consideration, would require an additional 24-hours for every 100 pages of bill text beyond 300 pages, and take away the force of law of any legislation using ‘fast track’ procedures.” He is also a co-sponsor of H.R. 4486, the Do Your Job Act, which would prevent the payment of salaries of members of the House or Senate if the respective chamber does not hold a vote on final passage of each of the 12 regular appropriations bills prior to the end of the fiscal year.

 

With an undergraduate degree from Rice University with three majors, an MBA from Cornell University, service to his country in the military, and experience as the executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium, Bridenstine is a particularly seasoned leader. He currently sits on both the Committee on Armed Services and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. He has a specific interest in space affairs and praises entrepreneurs for advancing breakthroughs in space technology.

 

He believes NASA has become a “jack of all trades” and hopes to help it focus on human exploration and pioneering space, as was its main objective in 1958. Through his legislation, H.R. 4945, the American Space Renaissance Act, he proposes that the Pentagon should focus on buying services from commercial providers instead of owning all the systems itself and transition from a very few large and expensive government satellites to a system of smaller, less-expensive ones. He has a website detailing the aspects of his bill.

 

Rep. Jim Bridenstine is a patriot and a statesman. He has spent his time in the House of Representatives fighting for the Constitution and fiscal responsibility. He has taken on leadership that has gone astray, and is a voice for his constituents… For these reasons, we’re proud to name Rep. Jim Bridenstine FreedomWorks’ Congressman of the Month for May, 2016!
