In the last 2 years, we’ve worked to get more nullification bills introduced – and PASSED – than at any time in our history.
Since 2006, we’ve taken a stand for the #Constitution, and will continue to do so every single day going forward.
Thank you, TJ Martinell

Today at noon Eastern Time, Donald Trump will be officially sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, with Mike Pence being sworn in as the 48th Vice President shortly beforehand. The Inauguration activities kick off around 11:30am ET/10:30am CT.
The video below is supposed to live-stream the Inauguration, for those unable to watch elsewhere:
To quote former President Gerald Ford from his inauguration,
“My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.”
Let’s pray that President Trump exceeds our expectations.
It is a few months after the election; do you know where your freshman legislator is?
Sending your naïve conservative hero off to the legislature is similar to sending your precious, innocent college freshman off to a liberal university.
You are turning him loose to the wolves.
You have done all you can to raise him up and prepare him for the real world, but you will never know how he is going to respond to all the pressure and temptations that come with his new life away from home and the people who helped him get there.
How will you know where he is, and the decisions he’s making, when you aren’t there to hold his hand?
Charles McCall made the following statement about the placement of members into each committee, and the chairmanship selections.“I am very thankful that each of these members is willing to serve where they are most needed,” said McCall, R-Atoka. “There is a lot of work to do, and we have a short amount of time to do it. These members each have unique skillsets and experiences that will serve Oklahoma well on these committees, and that will help us accomplish more of the work the peo […]
State Rep. Dan Kirby (R-Tulsa) has now been accused of sexual harassment by two of his former legislative assistants. The House Rules Committee is reviewing those claims, as well as allegations against other members of the House. That investigation should continue.
The first accusation against Kirby was settled out of court, at a cost to taxpayers of nearly $45,000. After news reports uncovered the secret settlement, Kirby announced that he would resign, only to rescind that resignation several days later.
Kirby claims that the first allegation is groundless and that he will be found innocent, and that he had no idea of the situation until it hit the news. I find that hard to believe.

The Greatest statesmen are often heroes in their own homes. A man of inspiring patriotic words; Patrick Henry’s most admirable traits may be more basic that what he did publicly to inspire revolution. His legacy of love for his deeply ill wife drove him to great lengths of sacrifice even as he risked death in order to provide humane care to the love of his life. The Smithsonian published a story about Patrick Henry whic […]
The Senate Environment & Public Works Committee gaveled into session around 9am, today. Oklahoma Attorney General, Scott Pruitt, was seated before a committee where Senator Jim Inhofe is one of the more senior members. Senator James Lankford stood by his fellow Oklahoman and Southern Baptist churchgoer. The dramatics are sure to be over the top, as well as the pontificating of many left-leaning groups. […]
Over the past few days you may have seen news stories describing the impending introduction of a gas tax increase. Those who suggest Oklahoma should increase the gas tax are using the following reasoning: “Oklahoma has the one of the lowest state-level gas taxes in the country and this justifies an increase.”
I don’t think this flawed logic will have its desired effect. Several years ago, the proponents of an increase took their tax hike effort to a vote of the people and it was overwhelmingly rejected.
I think this is because Oklahoma voters know the truth. While Oklahoma’s gas tax may be less than other states, Oklahoma’s citizens are forced to pay for roads and bridges through a punitive and overlapping system of taxes and user fees.
