Can a legislator declare a retroactive tax hike on money we each earned 4 years ago?  Those are some analogies being floated by several county governments.  Just last week we heard several legislators characterize future wind industry credits as “breaching a contract with corporate partners”.  In the past few years our county governments have had funds appropriated to them for i […]

R3publicans:  Is Trump “colluding” with Mueller?

Is Mueller really a “white hat” investigating the “Deep State” and not actually investigating Donald Trump? If you listen to the Main Stream Media the are salivating over the possibility that Mueller may indict Trump. If you listen to the Democrats, they are hoping that a Trump indictment can be a reason to impeach. If you listen to the Republicans, they are weary of the false Trump/Russian collusion narrative and want it to be over, and they blame Mueller. Well what if Mueller is actually working to help Trump fulfill his promise to Drain The Swamp? Listen to David Zublick make a case that Mueller is doing just that.

OK2A:  Facts About SB1212

Currently, there are 13 constitutional carry states that Oklahoma recognizes for reciprocity — that’s 25% of the states in the United States. Where is all the crime in these states? When a resident of one of those states comes to Oklahoma, under current Oklahoma law, a person can legally carry in Oklahoma without permission from the Oklahoma government. SB1212 simply extends that same right to Oklahoma residents without enforcing a tax to exercise a Constitutional right.
