Billionaire Sheldon Adelson, President Donald Trump’s biggest donor, just secured his role as the GOP’s top 2018 funder with a $25 million contribution to Senate Republicans midterm election efforts. In all likelihood, he also bought himself a direct line to any Republican whose ear he wants to bend.

Adelson’s perspectives on U.S. foreign policy, particularly towards Iran, are alarming, given that his influence on U.S. politics is set to grow in the wake of his latest mega-donation to the Republican party.

WASHINGTON – With the 2018 Congressional midterm elections approaching, Republicans – eager to keep their control of both houses of Congress – have been seeking lucrative donations that would give Republican candidates an advantage in the lead-up to November.
It was only two years ago that then-candidate Trump avoided the annual Conservative Political Action Conference [CPAC] because it looked likely he would be booed by “true conservatives.” At this year’s CPAC, both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were treated as conquering heroes, leading the Main Stream Media to declare the president’s victory conclusive [Trump’s Takeover of Conservatism Is Complete and Total, by Tim Alberta, Politico, February 25, 2018]. But there are still real dangers for National Conservatives aiming to use the GOP as a vehicle to achieve patriotic immigration reform. Chief among them: the possibility that President Trump will continue to show weakness on immigration. With midterms approaching, time is running out, and Trump simply has not yet given his base a compelling reason to follow him.

|Open borders, amnesty activist Senator Jeff Flake announced his retirement Tuesday with a painfully boring speech whining about “principles” and “our values.”Flake, who had no problem voting for the Iraq war, the PATRIOT act and amnesty for illegals, delivered a self-righteous sermon attacking Trumpism and praising the forces of globalism.|

Following recent resignations by Grace Farmer and Jerry Buchanan (Sooner Politics story here), the First District Committee for the Republican Party met May 22nd in Tulsa to hold a special election for a new chair and vice chair. There were 16 voting members (one a proxy) present. After two rounds of tied voting and a brief question and answer period, Amanda Teegarden was selected as chair in a 10-6 vote. Voting was by secret ballot.
Joanne Tyree was the only announced candidate for Vice Chair and was elected by acclamation. Other candidates for chair were Bo Summers (withdrew after first vote and gave his support to Amanda Teegarden) and Jon McGrath. Neither Summers or McGrath or Tyree are members of the committee, but one does not have to be a member of the committee to be selected as chair or vice chair.
Congratulations to Amanda Teegarden and Joanne Tyree!

Dear Dr. McLarty,
“If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair. The event is in the hands of God.” George Washington
“A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy…. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” Samuel Adams
Wayne Hill – Rogers County – I disavow the 2017 OKGOP Platform for the reasons stated below. Please remove my name from being associated with this document.
There are stands a man must take to live with oneself and before God. The defense of life is one of those foundational convictions and a cornerstone of all liberties. If we do not wholly and fully defend life what is worth defending?
