M4.7 – 8 miles SW of Cherokee, Oklahoma
In the early morning hours of Nov. 18th, Oklahomans were shaken by a 4.7 magnitude quake centered near the Great Salt Plains Lake, in North Central Oklahoma.
The USGS released the following info:
Earthquakes in the Stable Continental Region
As is the case elsewhere in the world, there is evidence that some central and eastern North America earthquakes have been triggered or caused by human activities that have altered the stress conditions in earth’s crust sufficiently to induce faulting. Activities that have induced felt earthquakes in some geologic environments have included impoundment of water behind dams, injection of fluid into the earth’s crust, extraction of fluid or gas, and removal of rock in mining or quarrying operations.
In the very liberal publication, The Oklahoma Observer; Rep. David Perryman(Democrat-Chickasha) presses for Oklahoma to retain the bigoted language in our constitution known as “The Blaine Amendment”.
In some of the darker days of Oklahoma’s history, there were many anti Roman Catholic sentiments. These were nothing more than ignorant fears residing in the predominantly Democrat political environment.
This Summer, Oklahomans suffered some of the vestiges of that era, because we ignored our past errors and hid them, rather than confront the bigotry we had tolerated and promoted.
As we wrote in July, the Blaine Amendment language failed to be adopted to the US constitution. It was a blatant attempt to project the anti Catholic bias of many Americans.
Hernandez lacks experience, wisdom, and discretion
The plain-dealing honesty that Oklahoma’s Republicans offer to our voters is one of the most important virtues that lead to the massive shift from Democrat control. But many forces are eroding that distinction. Opportunists have engaged many efforts to co-opt that principle for personal gain.
It is time for the Republicans to be circumspect and thorough in the decisions about leadership. Many new faces have emerged and they need to be adopted into the ‘tent’. But they also need to be fully vetted for leadership.
Political activist, Al Gerhart, not only won an acquittal in yesterday’s ruling. To hear one judge’s opinion, This was not even close to enough of righting a wrong done in Oklahoma courts.
Sadly, only 3 of the 5 judges understood the fundamental issue of our constitutional rights in this case. Defendant Al Gerhart posted his own summation of the case;

A Monument To The Removal Of Faith From Civil Governance
This empty slab and chipped foundation is all that’s left of the monument commemorating the history of law in civilization. This is now a monument to America’s theophobia and attempt to erase any idea that faith has been a basis for civil governance.
Even though historic religions find their basis in the Mosaic tablets, the Oklahoma courts have rejected the notion that the state should recognize any historic inference to this world event and code of civil law.
Monument removed from state property in dark of night… The work crews showed up at the Oklahoma capitol in the dark of night.
Last night a private monument company sent a work crew to the state capitol. Security teams were in place and a barrier fence was all in place for a quick extraction. The privately donated monument to civil law was being torn down. This followed a very public and controversial legal fight that has been in national news over several years.

The address from Dr. Everett Piper, to President Obama, regarding his 12 minute rant after the Oregon college shootings.
Once again the president says nothing about Christians being executed…. Absolutely nothing!
A 12-minute rant and not one word about Christians.
Christians are being beheaded in the middle east and he lectures us about the crusades. Christians are being killed in the churches, like Charleston, and he lectures us about the NRA. Christians are being killed in colleges, like Umpqua, in Roseburg, Oregon, and mum’s the word. WHY?
