WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Oklahoma Congressional Delegation today urged the Obama Administration to reconsider its use of Fort Sill Army Base in Lawton, Okla., as a long-term holding facility for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC).
On Friday, Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that Defense Sec. Chuck Hagel approved a request from HHS to extend and expand the Department of Defense’s (DOD) commitment to house UAC on military bases. The agreement calls for the DOD to house up-to an additional 5,000 UAC in addition to the ongoing support for 3,600 children approved in May. The agreement also commits DOD facilities to be used through January 31, 2015.

Some time ago I created the meme above based on the notion we’ve been fed by the Chambers of Commerce that Common Core is necessary in order to train kids for jobs. Since the standards were forced onto the national scene through Obama’s Race to the Top application, the rallying cry has been that business in America is suffering because we are not properly educating our children to be workers. We must have an educated workforce in order to stimulate our economy.
Once Common Core was repealed in Oklahoma, and the process created by which new standards will be established, Oklahoma is now officially free of Common Core. Or are we?
Sometimes you meet people and you know immediately that they are special. Duane is one of those people. At any event, he is the one making sure everything is taken care of and doing whatever is needed to make it all work. I know how he loves and cares for his family by the way he talks about them and by the way he orders his life priorities – at least from my distant perspective. We visited briefly recently about his race and I wanted to do a post for my friends to let them know about his campaign and hopefully so that each of you will figure out some way to help put this wonderful gentleman in office.

The New York Times reported that the Obama Administration will transfer six Guantanamo Bay detainees to Uruguay, even after the Director of National Intelligence’s assessment concluded that nearly 30% of former Guantanamo detainees were confirmed or suspected of reengaging in terrorism after release.
We won the battle at the Supreme Court today – HB3399 was ruled constitutional.
The courtroom was packed. Folding chairs were brought in until there was no more room. The vote was 8-1.
