The Republican Party is an Utter Failure


Even in Oklahoma

Just to be clear – I AM EXTREMELY UPSET with the Republican Party. If the so-called Grand Old Party (GOP) actually supported the Constitution, the tenets of America’s Founding and President Donald Trump; then Trump would still be President.

It was bad enough the Courts REFUSED to even look at the volumes of evidence of election fraud with arbitrary rulings of a lack Standing, but Republican leadership on both the State and Federal level WOULD NOT force the issue legislatively to expose the election crimes.

I began with my anger with the Republican Party because I am on Oklahoma’s Sooner Tea Party email list.

I am inclined to dump the Republican Party for another political party; however, the Sooner Tea Party though angry at members of the Republican Party failing Trump, rightfully calling for the resignation of Oklahoma Senators Inhofe and Lankford for their betrayal of President Trump; the Sooner Tea Party wants to work in local GOP precinct meetings across Oklahoma to influence change.

Although local grassroots meetings are a necessity to begin reclaiming America, it is my sense the National version of the Republican Party is far too corrupted by Establishment thinking for local Republican precinct meetings to affect ANYTHING on a national level. That means Inhofe and Lankford will not be resigning from local pressure.

Below is the Sooner Tea Party displeasure with treasonous Republicans.

Our President has been betrayed and the election stolen.  Of that there is no doubt.

The only question is what you are going to do about it.  Trump was what I once thought impossible, the silver bullet.  The one thing that could turn around our country and give us a chance to push back the forces of evil.

I never believed in silver bullets because they gave people an excuse to avoid the fight, that is just human nature to protect oneself and avoid conflict if possible, to put their faith and hope in a miracle.  That leaves a people weak, for it is by fighting that humans become both strong and noble.

But now Trump has been cheated out of the election and it is clear that before we fight back, we must first clear out the traitors and weak  that refuse to fight back.  We do that  by taking control of the GOP, banding with other GOP leaders that are willing to fight and to lead their counties and elect new leadership of the Oklahoma GOP.  We do that by becoming a delegate to the State GOP  Convention so we can support better leadership and to drive out the traitors in the Party.

One of the crucial reasons we need every single conservative Republican to attend their precinct meeting and qualify as a county and state GOP convention delegate is to deal with our disgusting traitor senators that threw us and President Trump under the bus.

Below is the resolution.   Print a few copies, date it and sign it, and turn it in with your precinct meeting paper work by describing the resolution on the actual paperwork and stating that the resolution is attached to the precinct meeting forms.  Give your extra copies to others, the more that get filed the greater the chance of the County GOP convention putting the resolution on the agenda.

Once you have attended the precinct meeting and your County GOP Convention, you get to vote for this man who is running for the GOP State Chairman slot. Cleaning up Oklahoma is needed and once done we can focus on helping other states that need the GOP cleaned up or their election laws fixed.

Now a trick learned from the 2012 Ron Paul effort, take pictures of all of your paperwork and resolutions that you turn in so you can prove you attended the precinct meetings and applied as a delegate.  And pictures of the resolution you turned in.

You will elect yourself as precinct chair or vice chair if no one else shows up or elect whoever wins the informal election.  You can choose an open or closed delegation.  This is your choice once elected as the Precinct chair or vice chair, not the person running the precinct meetings, not the County GOP officials.  In all matters at the precinct level the precinct is the final say once voting upon an issue.

You can choose which committee you wish to volunteer on, Rules Committee which sets the rules for the convention, Credentials which decide any appeals for anyone rejected as a delegate (very rare), or the Platform which helps modify the Party Platform.

If you have more attendees than delegate votes (which will be written on your precinct paperwork given to you) you might choose to have a closed delegation so that the County GOP officials cannot dilute your vote by adding late comers to the delegates from your precinct.  One delegate can carry up to two convention votes or if more delegates than votes, the votes are equally divided up among the precinct delegates.

If that fails, have several copies with you at the County GOP convention and get as many signatures as possible and we can file the resolution at the convention from the floor.

And lastly, if you have any problem being seated as a delegate call me after business hours at 405-942-2644 and give me the name of whoever is standing in your way.  If you are a registered Republican and can prove that with a voter ID card or printing out proof from the Election Board you have the right to attend your precinct meeting and become a delegate.  It is possible in a precinct with a large turnout to specify and elect delegates, in that case lobby hard to be one of the delegates.  That is rare though, inclusion usually is expected by dividing the votes among attendees.

Generally, any shenanigans happen at the County Convention in the Credentials Committee.  Save that phone number and call while you are in the room if they reject you so we can document the fraud and get the names of those responsible.  We will have no problem making them pariahs in the GOP if they are acting irresponsibly.  No better friend, no worse enemy is our adopted motto.

Lankford and Inhofe Resolution

Senators James Lankford and Jim Inhofe

Whereas Senator Jim Inhofe and Senator James Lankford have betrayed the Oklahoma Republican Party and their Republican, Independent, and conservative Democrat constituents.

Whereas neither Inhofe nor Lankford represented the desires or interests of their constituents on January 6th 2021 by refusing to support the effort to delay the counting of the Electoral Ballots until a ten-day investigation had occurred.

Whereas their subsequent vote to confirm Joe Biden as the president elect was a complete betrayal of  Oklahoma, the Republican Party,  and President Trump.

Be it resolved that both men shall be stripped from the Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Oklahoma, along with any representatives they might send or have sent in the past.

Be it  also resolved that both Inhofe and Lankford are hereby stripped of Republican Party membership and any right to speak at any Oklahoma Republican Party event or meeting.

Be it also resolved that both Inhofe and Lankford are stripped of any right to run as a Republican candidate or use the Republican brand or name from the day this resolution passes.

Be it finally resolved that a copy of this resolution once passed shall be sent to all Oklahoma GOP County Chairmen, to the National Republican Party, to all State Republican Parties, and to all media outlets in the state of Oklahoma.

Please print off several copies of this resolution  to take to the Precinct meetings for attendees to sign and for them to file their own copy with signatures.

Osage County GOP Convention Censures Lankford and Inhofe

Osage County held their precinct meetings/county convention on Saturday and led the state in censuring Oklahoma’s two traitorous Senators for their attack on President Trump and their refusal to represent the will of the voters of Oklahoma.

Osage County censure picture

What a great job by some great Americans.

We need to follow this up with dozens of counties passing even stricter resolutions condemning Lankford and Inhofe for cowardice and treachery and removing them from the Republican Party.

Let them run as Democrats.

The Arizona GOP censured three leading Arizona Republicans, Cindy McCain the widow of  John McCain, Governor Doug Ducey, and Senator Jeff Flake.

I live in Oklahoma. Every so every I like to highlight the politics going on in my State. I get a newsletter from Oklahoma’s Sooner Tea Party. I like the Sooner Tea Party because they are committed to Conservative principles rather than a political party such as the GOP or the Leftist Dems.

 

This Newsletter looks at:

 

  • Oklahoma tax reform

 

  • The apparent cover-up of an audit revealing the last three State Attorney Generals (all GOP) – including the present Mike Hunter – not acting on criminality revealed in the audit.

 

  • Announcement of Konawa Tea Party speaker engagement (which I’m omitting because the announced date was May 22).

Simply the Most Important Thing You Can Do For Conservative Values

 

One of the more common excuses that people give for not getting involved in the fight is that they are powerless, that a single person can do nothing against the liberal/RINO machine that is grinding away our freedom and stealing our hard earned income. That is so wrong on so many levels but no one can argue this; your one voice coupled with 40,999 others damn sure can get something done.

 

Forty one thousand signatures is all that is needed to set the largest tax increase in Oklahoma history on a upcoming statewide ballot. If that can’t be accomplished then there is no hope of ever holding the line against the RINOs and liberals simply because our people wouldn’t deserve the line to be held. It is one thing to come to the front and lead, it is another thing to fight for others while they sit on their asses whining and crying that they are helpless.

 

The minute that the signatures are counted and approved the teacher taxes are stopped butt cold, frozen in place, until the outcome of the vote. Your signature and support for this effort will send a loud message to the union thugs that we call teachers, it sends a message to the union thugs in other states that are threatening to strike for higher pay, it sends a message to the legislature and every politician in the state. And that message is; Cut the waste before raising our taxes.

 

If you smoke, use gasoline or diesel, or purchase items that require the use of fuel to get them to the store or to your home, you are impacted by these massive taxes. If you are a middle class taxpayer your deductions have been slashed. If you are a working class or working poor taxpayer your deductions have been slashed. If you are wealthy your deductions have been slashed. If you are on social security or disability the economy that pays for your benefits is being impacted by these taxes and ultimately you will be impacted.

 

Oklahoma Taxpayers Unite has a website up with a list of locations that are hosting a petition. You as a business can ask to be added to the list or you as a private individual can ask to host a petition. Get involved, get a petition and ask others to sign it. Be one of 2050 people that manage to get 20 friends, family, or neighbors to sign the petition.

Some of the Faces of Corruption in Oklahoma [Drew Edmondson, Scott Pruitt & Mike Hunter]

 

We have been following the Tar Creek Audit for years and with the release of the two audits thanks to pressure on the AG office by a lawsuit, everything that was alleged years ago has turned out to be completely true. David Van with Sooner Politics ran a story on the release of the audit last week and we read both audits and there is no doubt that this was corrupt.

 

Three Attorney Generals fought to hide this corruption. Drew Edmondson, Scott Pruitt, and the current weasel Mike Hunter. No doubt the corruption was protected thanks to campaign donations or political power from those that profited. What should have been a $600,000 project to clean up some old houses at Tar Creek turned into over $3,000,000 in taxpayer dollars wasted.

 

Current AG Mike Hunter made sure that the theft and corruption went unpunished by holding off the release of the audits till one day after the seven years statute of limitations had expired. Investigators in his office colluded by claiming that there were no prosecutable crimes committed despite the audits clear results and clear statements that the bids were rigged and favoritism was shown. Even the bidders on the project did their part by suing and halting the process, shining a bright light on the bidding process yet they were so brazen as to steal the taxpayer money anyway.

 

Imagine, a carpet cleaning company with zero experience beats out three other experienced demolition contractors, some of which had handled tens of millions of dollars in such demolition work. The carpet cleaning company is able to obtain a bond and magically comes up with a quality control document/plan that matches word for word what the original project engineer submitted despite state and federal law that prohibits the sharing of bid information. The experienced demolition contractors score 1’s on the scoring process set up by the project engineer and board members while the carpet cleaning company scores a 10.

 

An alternate contract that is put in place in case the local EPA landfill or the local state dumping site can’t be used suddenly is approved despite only 15% of the debris being hauled to the Kansas dump site. What should have been a $150,000 payment for the extra miles and dumping fees turns into over one million dollars windfall for the contractor/carpet cleaning company.

 

Thousands of dollars were billed for non existent structures on empty lots, allegedly paying for asbestos abatement and demolition of the homes and the hauling away of hundreds of yards of debris despite photo showing the empty lots before the work began.

 

Micky Mantle’s home was sold to a neighboring town and hauled away at their expense, yet the carpet cleaning contractor billed thousands of dollars for demolition and debris hauling and disposal. That same home still exists and is on display in the neighboring town.

 

Initial bids on the entire project were under one million dollars, with the lowest being just under $600,000. The state realized that the Davis Bacon law didn’t have to be followed so they rebid the contracts, expecting to save money for the taxpayers. Indeed, that lowest bid came back $41,000 cheaper than the original bid. But somehow the project was given to the highest bidder for ultimately $3.4 million dollars based upon the carpet cleaning company having a better quality control plan than the other three experienced demolition contractors.

 

Here is part of the summary of the 2nd audit:

 

“This report describes various problems with the LICRAT Property Improvement Clearance Project that was bid and awarded through the Department of Central Services(DCS) in December 2010. Although our investigation did not provide direct evidence fora conspiracy against the state, it did provide considerable circumstantial evidence that a conspiracy may have existed.

 

We observed that the DC$ bid process resulted in this contract being awarded to the same vendor implicated in our report for Objective I, CWF Enterprises, Inc., despite the fact that the March 2010 bid process contained significant violations of the Title 61, Public Competitive Bidding Act and was voided by an Ottawa County District Court on an Open Meeting Act violation.

 

Every change, modification, or re-interpretation of this second demolition contract served only to increase the eventual payout to the contractor and increased the appearance of favoritism directed to the benefit of CWF Enterprises (CWF). As a consequence of highly questionable change orders and extremely lax contract administration of the December 2010 contract, the payments to CWF, under this second bid award/contract, totaled $3,050,785.93.

 

This amount, along with a payment to CWf of $366,282.56 under the March 2010 contract, brought the total payments to CWF for the Property Improvement Clearance Project to $3,417,068.49. Contrast this total amount with the original bid received on the project in October 2009, of $599,988.00.

 

To attribute the following sequence of events surrounding the December 2010 contract to simple coincidence or merely poor management, it would have to be “reasonable” to believe:

 

  • That a restoration-cleaning company with no heavy equipment and little experience in actual demolition work would receive a perfect “10” across the board in the DCS pre-bid qualification process led by Jack Dalrymple, the LICRAT project manager.

 

  • That this same pre-bid qualification process would attempt to disqualify all three other demolition companies by rating them near across-the-board “l’s” on a scale of 1to 10, although two of the three initially disqualified companies provided examples of prior experience of major and more complex demolition contracts totaling tens of millions of dollars.

 

  • That all parties signed a contract omitting the Alternate bid as unnecessary, only to subsequently add the $1.3 million Alternate two months later using “clerical error” as the ostensible justification for increasing the contract award by nearly 78%.

 

  • That adding the $1.3 million Alternate bid as a “clerical error” change order was reasonable and appropriate, although state law prohibits cumulative “change orders or addenda” from exceeding 10% on contracts exceeding $1 million.

 

  • That it was acceptable to invoke the Alternate bid for additional costs to haul debris to a fee-based Kansas landfill when non-fee based facilities were still receiving debris.

 

  • Finally, after invoking the Alternate bid, that it could be presumed legitimate for the contractor to charge LICRAT on a “lump sum” basis for the entire $1.3 million Alternate, even though billing documentation reported only approximately 15% of project debris was hauled to the fee-based Kansas landfill, resulting in a “windfall” to the contractor of over $1 million. We do not believe that the above events can be explained away as poor management or “clerical error.” We believe the above provides sufficient circumstantial evidence for additional investigation into a potential conspiracy against the state.”

 

Five years after the initial audits were done this gets released, again a few days after the statute of limitations runs out. The two audits even disagree on a few points, as well as disagreeing with a 2013 EPA investigation, showing that political pressure was brought to bear on the auditor who is running for Governor.. Hunter claims he found “found prosecutable evidence of criminal activity.”, well if you wait till the statute of limitations expires that might be the case. Yet the original audit found evidence of violations of the cometitive [sic] bidding act, bidder choosing, collusion among bidders, unlawful disclosure of information prior to bidding, conspiracy against the state, open meetings act violations, violations of contractor and bidding bonds, and illegal federal award payments used to pay legal fees for violating the law. Yet somehow these same findings were changed and watered down in the second audit by Gary Jones.

 

Dalrymple was hired as the project engineer and managed to get the contract language changed allowing him to approve changes in the contract instead of the Trust Board. He stood to profit as he was to be paid 10% on top of the winning bids for the work, so the higher the bids the higher his paycheck. Ten percent of $600,000 is lower than ten percent of $3,400,000 and that was his motivation for rigging the bids according to the audits. The bid inspection and awarding was not done in an open meeting and the awarding of the bid to the highest bidder was never explained as required by law. Why a $599,000 bid was turned down for demolition work and a $2,100,000 bid was accepted has never been explained. Time lines were jumbled, bids were awarded weeks after emails from the principles showed that the bid had been decided upon. Emails proving collusion between parties involved were ignored by prosecutors.

 

The fraud and collusion is plain to see yet three Attorney Generals fought long and hard to prevent this audit from being done and once done they fought to prevent it being released. Drew Edmondson, Scott Pruitt, and Mike Hunter all protected this corruption and whether they did so because of personal gain or because they were paying off political debts is of no matter, it stunk, it still stinks, and all three men ought to be in front of a grand jury explaining their actions.

Inmate Query – Roderick Scallion

 

Soft on Crime Story of the Week

 

Meet Roderick Scallion, career criminal that loves the current soft on crime legislature. Scallion started his adult criminal career in Hobart in 2003 just after his 20th birthday, CF-2003-00060 possession of drugs, paraphernalia, and having an open beer in his vehicle. He pleaded guilty and was released due to time served in the local jail of 120 days and ordered to pay his court and incarceration costs. Which never happened so a warrant was issued for his arrest on failure to pay. A few years later he had been caught, his suspended sentence revoked, and sent to local jail for sixty days. A year later Scallion is out and still refusing to pay so he is arrested again on a second motion to revoke the suspended sentence. This time they send him to Lexington for two years but of course he is released months later as three years means a few months in actual prison. By 2007 he is still refusing to pay fines and fees and his suspended sentence is revoked again. By 2010 the state still hasn’t managed to get a dime from Scallion and once again a warrant is issued for failing to appear to explain why he is not following his agreed payment plan each month. In 2011 he agrees to pay around $800 in arrears and then pay $100 per month but doesn’t and it is 2014 before they catch up with Scallion again. Scallion once again agrees to pay and disappears once again with a warrant out for his arrest. Repeat in 2015 and 2016 with zero payment made on the original fines and fees.

 

Of course this 2003 was just his first adult arrest. The next was in 2005, CF-2005-00063 , escape from detention or arrest. He is let out of jail for time served and the costs waived, agreeing to move to Kansas it seems. By 2006 the dance begins anew with a motion to revoke this suspended sentence and a warrant for Scallion’s arrest. 2007 ends with a new payment plan at $100 per month with no payments shown on the court record.

 

Third arrest in 2006, escaping detention and possession of drugs, CF-2006-00021 . Plead guilty to suspended sentence and probation, ordered to pay fines and fees but no record on the docket showing any was ever paid.

 

Next arrest was in 2010, petty larceny. Scallion pleads guilty, sentenced to time served and fees, doesn’t pay.

 

March of 2010, Tulsa County, CF-2010-822 , assault and battery on a police officer, possession of drugs with intention to distribute, driving without a license, and escaping detention. This case winds on for years, multiple bondsmen, multiple attorneys of public defender, multiple failure to appears, warrants, and re arrests. By May of 2014 Scallion pleads guilty and receives suspended sentences, some time served, some community service, and of course agrees to pay fines and fees that he will never pay. By September of 2014 he isn’t paying or appearing and another warrant is issued. By September the suspended sentences are revoked. Scallion once again cuts a deal and the suspension of the sentences stays in place but by early 2015 he is refusing to pay and appear once again and another warrant is issued and once again the suspended sentences are revoked. Around this same time Scallion has time and money to get married.

 

Next arrest in Kiowa County was late 2014, breaking and entering and escaping detention again. Plead guilty, sentenced to the 135 days of time served awaiting trial, and fines of course which were not paid.

By 2015 Scallion still isn’t paying but the notes on the file show he did call in to the court clerk…..

 

2015, obstructing an officer, CM-2014-00373. Plead guilty because he isn’t gonna pay anyway, doesn’t show up again. On this one case Scallion has around $5000 in incarceration costs alone plus another thousand or so of court costs and fees.

 

September 2016 and Scallion has moved this business to Oklahoma County, arrested on CF-2016-7405 for assault and battery on a police officer, no doubt in trying to escape capture for one of his warrants. By May of 2017 Scallion has been through several attorneys, most likely not paying their bill, The case is still pending and scheduled to be heard August 2018, three years after the crime was committed.

 

September 2016 and Scallion has committed another series of crimes, CF-2016-7407 another assault and battery on a police officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, and concealing stolen property. Set for Jury trial in March of 2018 but continued to August of 2018.

 

A few days after committing the crimes above Scallion committed another felony, CF-2016-7519 , using a stolen credit card it seems. By May 20176 he has jumped bail and is on the run again. Scallion posts bond a few weeks later after being caught but jumps bail again a few weeks later. He pleads guilty in September of 2017 and gets a three year suspended sentence with 120 days credit for time served while awaiting trial. But Scallion once again breaks his deal and the case is set for jury trial again in August of 2018.

 

September 2016 another set of charges have been filed, CF-2016-7542 , committing felonies in two or more counties and Burglary first degree, and five counts of having and using a stolen credit card. Set for trial in March of 2018 but continued till August of 2018, nearly two years after the crime was committed.

 

Thirteen years of crime after crime after crime. The legal system choked with hearings and trials for a man that always pleads guilty after exhausting the delays, promises to pay and then disappears or simply doesn’t pay any of the tens of thousands of dollars in court costs or incarceration fees. And time after time a judge gives Scallion another chance and kicks the can down the road.

 

People say we lock up too many people. The fact is you have to work really, really, hard to get sent to prison and you are there about one quarter to one third of the time sentenced if your victim is lucky.

I live in the State of Oklahoma. Many States have wised up about the intrusive nature of the international body known as the United Nations and a global plan known collectively as Agenda 21 to create a UN managed policy Eco-Marxism (oft times called the Green Agenda or Global Warming), international management of food resources (which include land management) and the depopulation of the earth to maintain sustainable resources for the good of all mankinderr check that – I mean humankind.

 

Senate Energy Committee Chairman Cliff Branan appears to be a Conservative voting State Senator yet he has fallen for the propaganda that those that expose the nefarious nature of Agenda 21 are a part of a loony Right Wing fringe Conspiracy Theory:

 

Republican Sen. Cliff Branan, chairman of the Senate Energy Committee, told The Associated Press late Tuesday afternoon that he’d decided not to hear the measure at the panel’s Thursday meeting, likely killing it for this year’s legislative session.

 

Branan said the bill is based on a “fringe conspiracy” that the U.N. wants to use its Agenda 21 plan to encroach on the private property rights of Americans.

 

“I check each bill one at a time, and that was really more of a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist at all,” he told the AP in a phone interview. “It’s a fringe conspiracy-type issue that’s frankly bad public policy.” (READ ENTIRITY; Oklahoma panel won’t hear bill banning Agenda 21 plan; By Dan Holtmeyer; EnidNews.com, 4/2/2013 – Bold Emphasis Mine)

 

State Senator Branan’s predilection to ignore the international intrusion of our National Sovereignty that could lead to future intrusion that is beyond the scope Eco-Marxism led this GOP Energy Chairman to find an excuse to keep anti-Agenda 21 legislation from even being heard in his committee. Agenda 21 is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the UN trying to exert a Left Wing will against the tenets of the U.S. Constitution. A couple of examples are the UN’s international support of gun control and the UN’s agreement with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to prevent criticism of Islam yet allow Muslim nations to persecute Christians.

 

Senator Branan’s excuse came in a threatening email written by Al Gerhart of the Sooner Tea Party. This is excerpted from an Al Gerhart email sent for the Soone4 Tea Party email list:

 

— On Tue, 3/26/13, xxxxxxx xxxxxxxx wrote:

Subject: HB 1412
To: Branan@oksenate.gov
Date: Tuesday, March 26, 2013, 9:09 PM

 

Senator Branan: Pass HB 1412 out of committee NOW!!

 

All of my acquaintances and I are watching to see how you handle this bill.

This bill must be voted into law this year.

 

Bcc recipients: Forward your version of this email to Sen. Branan ASAP.

 

The only day the bill can move is April 4th–just a few days from now!

Regards,

 

Xxxxxx xxxxxxxxx

+1-405-xxx-xxxx (Text OK)

 

Al Gerhart’s answer to the Sooner Tea Party member, the Bcc list, and Senator Branan:

 

Branan,

 

Get that bill heard or I will make sure you regret not doing it. I will make you the laughing stock of the Senate if I don’t hear that this bill will be heard and passed. We will dig into your past, your family, your associates, and once we start on you there will be no end to it.

 

This is a promise.

 

Al Gerhart

Sooner Tea Party

 

I understand Gerhart’s frustration with an Oklahoma State politician that would describe himself as a Conservative not following through with legislation the Oklahoma State House already voted for in an overwhelming majority. BUT threatening political leverage based on looking for dirt to force Branan to at least pass the legislation through Committee and allow the entire Senate is reprehensible. I mean that is what Left Wing Democrats do to throw mud on Conservatives to get the mud to stick on the minds of public opinion.

 

Gerhart has attempted to explain the email by saying it was not blackmail as the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation is investigating, but rather the email was political advocacy. I am willing to give Gerhart a pass on the blackmail charge. As far as political advocacy goes Gerhart must redeem himself by standing against both Agenda 21 and Leftist style propaganda mud throwing. Gerhart stepped his advocacy by actually accusing Cliff Branan of infidelity without any proof of the accusation. Because of this I believe Al Gerhart needs to withdraw from any public face connected to the Tea Party Movement. Gerhart has provided kindling to inspire the Left to say something to the equivalent of ‘See, Tea Partiers are a part of the evil Right Wing fringe and the public cannot rely on the validity of any Tea Party Advocacy or Activism.’

 

Here is the email in its entirety from Al Gerhart:

Senate Leadership Ramps up Intimidation

Senate Demands Blackmail Charges

Against Tea Party Leader

 

The current controversy isn’t about Senator Branan feigning concern over an email. The fight is about HB 1412; the Agenda 21 nullification bill that Senator Branan is determined to kill in the Senate Energy Committee.

 

HB 1412 passed the House on a bi partisan vote of 67 to 17.

 

Agenda 21 is about taking private property through use restrictions.

 

Agenda 21 is promoted by radical environmentalists, animal rights activists, and those with extreme social agendas.

 

Agenda 21 is about submitting to global control instead of local control.

 

They want to tell us how to live our lives and use our property.

 

Senate Leadership has taken the unprecedented step of asking the OSBI to investigate me on blackmail charges but originally their intent was to investigate me on a physical threat charge. We published the entire email thread in question on Monday in our regular newsletter and pointed out that a physical threat charge must have two points present:

 

There must be an actual physical threat that must be explicitly stated.

 

And it must be an imminent physical threat, i.e., it must set a time frame that the threat will be carried out.

 

Stymied by the facts Senate Leadership has switched tactics and is pushing the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) to investigate based upon blackmail statues.

 

The legal definition of blackmail is:

 

“verbal, written, or printed communication with the intent to extort or gain anything of value from another or to compel another to do an act against his or her will”

Political advocacy however is not blackmail. It is a core First Amendment right, legally permissible and constitutionally protected.

 

The First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

Petitioning the government in a matter pending before the legislature is a basic U.S. and Oklahoma Constitutional right. Criminal statutes cannot criminalize what is legally considered constitutionally permissible speech. If that is to be the standard then arrest every leader of the House and Senate; in particular arrest the House and Senate whips. Whips are legislative “enforcers”, who can offer inducements or threaten punishments for legislators to force them to vote according to the leadership’s agenda. Their only job is to get legislators to do things they don’t want to do.

 

The implications of Senate leadership’s actions are enormous for grassroots activists, journalists, or any citizen that works to hold politicians politically accountable. Any citizen who works for openness, transparency, and accountability of elected officials or wishes to expose corruption is now at risk. Those that think they are untouchable because they are term limited are the beneficiaries of this criminalization of First Amendment speech.

 

Yes there are those that can convolute our criminal statutes into a criminalizing free speech. They can take a blackmail criminal statute that covers those communicating in private about a private matter and twist the statute into criminalizing communications about a public matter that was communicated in a very public fashion. Blackmail has always been limited to threats on issues that are not made public; indeed once the issue has been publicized the blackmailer loses his power over the victim. Remember that the email in particular was sent not only to Senator Branan but to the individual that had copied his email to the Sooner Tea Party.

 

Remember that that individual had an extensive Bcc list and had encouraged them to forward his email. Is it not obvious that this email was intended to be spread far and wide in a most public fashion?

 

Core First Amendment speech and petitioning the government on a matter of public concern must be protected at all costs. There are those that will take issue with the Sooner Tea Party tactics. Perhaps they are not able to stomach what must be done or they might take offense of how we do things but they cannot deny that our tactics are what makes the Sooner Tea Party different, unique, and effective Politics is a battle over ideas and values that is fought mostly in individual battles or over individual legislation where both side tries to move the ball forward while defending ideas, principles, and legislation. The battle is not fought with guns and knives; it is fought with pen and paper, and with emails and phone calls. As in all battles there will be winners and losers as well as collateral damage.

 

It is impossible to draw a full and complete picture of a politician without looking at their family, friends, and associates. Digging into a politician’s background is basic political strategy that has and is being practiced by every political opponent in the state and it is practiced by every journalist in the world. There will be those individuals that are close to a politician that will pay a price for standing so close. If you don’t believe me ask Billy Carter, ask former presidential candidate John Edward’s wife, or ask former District Attorney Wes Lane about how his wife was treated.

 

The Senate’s attempt to criminalize constitutionally protected speech and to cast a chill upon citizens and grassroots activists is nothing more than an admission that they are losing control over the individual Senators. If we weren’t effective then they would not have attacked us. Political pain and embarrassment will be necessary if the citizens expect to regain control over the Senate and to regain their right to representation. Special interests want things to remain like they are but this country and this state is spiraling into uncertainty so the time for “nice” behavior is long past.

 

The political games where the House, the Senate, and the Governor take turns killing needed legislation to protect special interests is over. If they think they can use a term limited politician to kill legislation that the public supports then we will be sure that that term limited politician has that treachery attached to his name from now on. We are not afraid of the politicians or the stooges that do their bidding. We don’t want anything from them except that the public interest come first. We are here to stay and we will never back down.

 

We ask the citizens of Oklahoma to contact Senator Branan at Branan@oksenate.gov and demand that he allow HB 1412 to be heard.

 

You can call the Senate switchboard and ask for him by name at (405) 524-0126.

 

We also ask the citizens of Oklahoma to contact their own senator and ask them to fight for HB 1412 and stop Agenda 21 from stealing property rights from Oklahoma citizens.

 

This fight isn’t about rough language in an email; this fight is about the ability of Senator Branan acting on Senate leadership orders, to override the other 148 legislators to steal property rights from over three million Oklahomans.

 

Original email sent to Senator Branan by a Sooner Tea Party member responding to an STP Action Alert on HB1412:

Senator Branam: Pass HB 1412 out of committee NOW!!

 

All of my acquaintances and I are watching to see how you handle this bill.

This bill must be voted into law this year.

 

Bcc recipients: Forward your version of this email to Sen. Branan ASAP.

 

The only day the bill can move is April 4th–just a few days from now!

Al Gerhart’s answer to the Sooner Tea Party member, the Bcc list, and Senator Branan:

 

Branan,

 

Get that bill heard or I will make sure you regret not doing it. I will make you the laughing stock of the Senate if I don’t hear that this bill will be heard and passed. We will dig into your past, your family, your associates, and once we start on you there will be no end to it.

 

This is a promise.

 

Al Gerhart

Sooner Tea Party

 

Gerhart’s self-defense of his email and unsubstantiated accusation probably is not felony blackmail, but it definitely is dirty politics of the kind the Tea Party Movement should not utilize. Rather the Tea Party Movement should collectively condemn the Al Gerhart kind of “advocacy” whether it is down in a Conservative or Liberal-Left camp and whether it is from the GOP or the Dems. Part of the First Principles to defend the Founding Father implementation of Constitutional Law by and for the People through a Republic form of government is the maintenance of Christian honor. Political smearing especially when the smearing is a lie that cannot be proven is not honorable. As far as I know the Gerhart accusation of Branan infidelity is a baseless created rumor for the effect of defaming Branan’s character. Rather than going for a blackmail charge Branan needs to litigate against Gerhart as part of preventing this kind of political “advocacy” from darkening Tea Partiers.

 

On the other hand Oklahoma State Senator Cliff Branan is either a Conservative moron or is in the pockets of Oklahoman Establishment Republicans to advocate Agenda 21 as something good for local Oklahomans. Branan is a moron to make an unsubstantiated statement saying roughly this message:

 

The chairman of the Oklahoma Senate Energy Committee says he won’t hear a bill intending to outlaw state organizations from following suggestions from the UN’s Agenda 21 sustainability plan.

 

Republican Sen. Cliff Branan says he decided not to hear HB1412 at the Energy Committee’s Thursday meeting. He says the bill is based on a “fringe conspiracy” that the UN wants to use Agenda 21 to infringe on American’s private property rights.

 

The bill would prohibit towns or counties from implementing any part of the nonbinding, voluntary plan. It also prohibits working with UN-affiliated groups. The bill passed the House 67-17. (READ THE REST; Okla. panel won’t hear bill banning Agenda 21 plan; OKNews9; Updated: Apr 02, 2013 5:15 PM CDT)

 

I found this lengthy article that utilizes United Nations’ documentation to demonstrate that anti-Agenda 21 exposés is not the work of fringe Right Wingers. Rather exposing Agenda 21 is an imperative Conservative process to protect the Rights established by our U.S. Constitution particularly America’s Bill of Rights.

 

I am excerpting from the article entitled, “Agenda 21 Declares War On Mankind.” The article is written by Jurriaan Maessen and posted on 8/8/12 on the blog Pragmatic Witness.

*****************************

 

In the last couple of years the omnipresent force known as Agenda 21 is meeting with increasing resistance worldwide. With the rise of the alternative media, the flow of decade-long propaganda efforts is finally being hindered. As a result of rocks thrown in the stream- the once steady water flow is now exposing itself at every turn as it’s forced to bend and twist its way forward. Ironically, the UN and its affiliate accomplices have themselves to thank for the counter-effort. The internet- as well as some pretty thorough archiving on the part of these transnational bureaucracies- have allowed researchers to withdraw information directly from the lion’s den. As a result of this development, we can display a plethora of documents, often written by UN personnel and ideologues, that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a concerted strategy in place to brainwash (there’s no other name for it) the human population of the planet into accepting Agenda 21 and its inherent depopulation proposals. Furthermore, this pool of document has revealed a plan to de-industrialize the west and to use the “green agenda” to do so. In the last few decades Agenda 21 has been UN policy, and all of its subdivisions were commanded to fall in line.

 

 

This is the word- Agenda 21: the UN strategy for redistributing the wealth accumulated by the “North” in order to create a completely “balanced” world society- under auspices of the United Nations of course and the private central banks controlling it. This can only come about by destroying the middle-class. A sudden redistribution and industrialization would not do- for the middle-class would undoubtedly rise in defiance against it. Therefore, Sachs argues for an incremental and carefully planned dissolution of the middle-class phase by phase:

 

“To be meaningful, the strategies should cover the time-span of several decades. Thirty-five to forty years seems a good compromise between the need to give enough time to the postulated transformations and the uncertainties brought about by the lengthening of the time-span. The retooling of industries, even in periods of rapid growth, requires ten to twenty years. The restructuration and the expansion of the infrastructures requires several decades and this is a crucially important sector from the point of view of environment.”

 

Then Sachs plunges into his most shocking statement:

 

“However, the single most important reason to consider the transition strategies over a minimum of thirty-five to forty years stems from the non-linearity of these strategies; they should be devised as a succession of changing priorities over time. A good illustration is provided by the population transition. In order to stabilize the populations of the South by means other than wars or epidemics, mere campaigning for birth control and distributing of contraceptives has proved fairly inefficient.”

 

Sachs argues that “an accelerated programme of social and economic development of the rural areas should be the outmost priority in the first phase of a realistic population stabilization scheme.”

 

 

The other, more sinister element of Agenda 21 is of course the concerted effort on the part of the global elite, through multilateral treaties and regulations, to not only control the populations of the world but to cull them.

 

Exhibit B: Using the Mass-Media To Cull the Overall Human Population

 

The 1973 document Mass Media, Family Planning and Development: Country Case Studies on Media Strategy is a good example of how the UN utilizes mass media to propogandize (sic) people into cutting their numbers. In this particular document we learn something about the strategies to be implemented in the eugenics-based family planning project of the future. Based on case studies in third world countries, the document proposes the creation of a “family planning communication resource unit” for every nation concerned. The reason being, so the report states, that “culturally, there is an emphasis on fertility, and the birth of children to the family is celebrated, as a symbol of prosperity and for status for women.” Because UNESCO-chieftains can’t have that, the reduction of a population should be accomplished through an elaborate media campaign, utilizing all possible avenues. Ancient tribal instincts, revolving around procreation and creativity, become suspect- as does religion and tribal mythology. The following strategies dates back from the early 1970s- but have now been formalized worldwide by Agenda 21 as enshrined within its dark articles.

 

The writers of the 1973 document mean not to destroy the human tendencies, they mean to use them to their own advantage and that of their masters. “The religion”, they say, “supports the idea that children are ‘God’s Greatest Blessing’ but can also be used to encourage the idea that every child should be given the best opportunities parents can offer. There is also a favourable attitude to economic development, a desire to raise living standards, and a desire for education. These factors are helpful in the development of a Preliminary Media Strategy.”

 

 

… The famous 1994 population conference in Cairo, held in the wake of Agenda 21?s formal kick-off, outlined some of the proposed strategies to be implemented. Then Secretary-General of the UN, Boutros Boutros-Ghali in his opening statement on the International Conference on Population and Development, stated that:

 

“I am not exaggerating when I say that not only does the future of the human society depend on this Conference but also the efficacy of the economic order of the planet on which we live.”

 

During a follow-up-meeting held in New York on December 1994, the United Nations’ participants came up with some practical solutions to the “population problem”– one of which is the integration of population issues with matters of “environment” and “human development”:

 

 

The report goes on to list these arguments with which populations worldwide should be lured into embracing modern-day eugenics as a sensible policy:

 

“The “Statement of Commitment on Population and Development by the United Nations System”, drafted by the Working Group, is divided into three sections: a general introduction stressing the commitment by the UN agencies and organizations to implement ICPD (International Conference on Population and Development); a section on the linkages between population issues and other development issues; and a concluding section calling for global partnership in addressing these interrelated issues.”
