Tulsa R3’s – Ron Paul Revolution
Moving an interim study on a controversial civil asset forfeiture bill to Tulsa has lawmakers puzzled, but Senate Judiciary Chairman Anthony Sykes isn’t talking about it.
The hearing will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1 at the Tulsa Police Academy, 90 miles from the state Capitol where most interim studies are conducted.
The civil asset forfeiture measure introduced by Sen. Kyle Loveless has sparked immense debate among lawmakers and law enforcement officials, including Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel, Canadian County Sheriff Randall Edwards and Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater. All three have criticized Loveless and his reasons for the bill.
Neither Sykes (R-Moore) nor Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman (R-Sapulpa) returned phone calls to Red Dirt Report for comment.
Moving the interim study may cause some logistical problems for expert witnesses who already have made travel plans. In addition, most hearing rooms at the Capitol have Internet connections that allow live broadcasts, but that may not be possible at the Tulsa police academy, two state officials said.
Despite the mysterious move to Tulsa, Loveless is happy the issue is getting heard in public.

Author and Bible teacher Jonathan Cahn says he has been so swamped with questions and concerns about the looming end of the Shemitah year on Sept. 13 that he can’t answer them all.
“We have been deluged with people calling, emailing, asking questions from all over the country, wanting to know what’s happening. So we decided to put out a video,” Cahn told WND via email.
In the message, posted to YouTube, Cahn calls for a period of national prayer and repentance leading up to the pivotal month of September.
He also issued a new warning about a “desecration” that often precedes judgment and is already present in American society. He calls for Christians to prepare for persecution and get ready to stand for God in a coming period of strife that will increasingly be devoid of “gray areas” or middle ground.
In the video, he says his main theme continues to be that of judgment visiting America. This will bring a “shaking” in the financial and economic realms. These tremors may spread beyond the economic realm.

It’s time to start exporting American oil for the benefit of the U.S. economy and national security according to First District Congressman Jim Bridenstine.
He spoke at the Pipeline & Energy Expo held at the Cox Convention Center on Tuesday.
Bridenstine and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) co-authored The American Energy Renaissance Act.
“When you look at Russia, 50 percent of the revenue coming into Russia is oil money from Eastern and Central Europe,” Bridenstine said. “Those countries don’t want to be dependent on Russia.”
He says Russia has an aggressive history of withholding oil shipments to punish its political enemies.
“We can export oil and provide security for our NATO allies,” he said. “It would be great for our Oklahoma and American economies and it would be a natural sanction on Russia.”
The proposed legislation also gives states more control of their own natural resources, calls for increased energy infrastructure and a “reigning in” of the Environmental Protection Agency.
