Oklahoma’s Mayor A Voice of Reason Among Unreasonable Panic

Oklahoma’s Mayor, Brian Hobbs who serves Newkirk, Oklahoma speaks out during the unreasonable panic that has struck Oklahoma and the Country:

800DEE24-2C66-4806-B5BC-9196E88009AD

I will preface this statement with the fact that as an elected officer, I have encouraged everyone I know to stay home including my direct family my parents my wife’s parents as much as possible. I have asked everyone to practice good hygiene and social distancing. I have asked that people treat this corona virus as a real threat. I have prayed for people to be safe and that God’s will be done. I am not trying to convince anyone that the government is going to line people up in the street tomorrow and execute them. I am only pointing out that freedom has eroded gradually over time. There is a difference between suggesting something and ordering it, backed by the threat of violence.

However, I ask myself with all of my countrymen begging for the government to institute a Nazi Germany, East Berlin type lockdown on its citizens. Why??
Why would our people beg for the government to become exactly what so many have given their lives fighting to resist in many wars throughout our history? The only conclusion I can come to is fear.
I understand people are scared, I understand that fear is warranted to a degree. The men who charged the beaches of Normandy into almost certain death were scared. Every paratrooper who jumped out of a plane. Every pilot that died a fiery death, each sailor who died in a watery grave. Every man who boarded a plane headed for Vietnam. The millions of men who boarded ships to join the fight in WW1. The men who fought in Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as numerous other theaters across the world having raised their right hand and taken a sacred oath to defend the constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.
I know this opinion is going to be unpopular in today’s age but it needs to be said. My life nor any of yours individually is more valuable than the millions who paid the price to keep our constitution in tact. As veterans we believe deeply in our sacred oaths to the constitution, as we knew one day it may lead to our deaths.
Ronald Reagan once said in one of my favorite speeches,
“You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin–just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain.” and
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

We have an opportunity to remind the world why we will never be conquered, why we for hundreds of years have been seen as a light on a hill. We can still unite and say we will not answer to “papers please”, we will not fall off into the abyss sacrificing all that was bequeathed to us in a moment of fear.
This is not who we are. Let us earn the privilege of the gift so many have fallen to give us.
Stand beside your neighbor. The government has no place shutting down private businesses or locking down cities. This truth is evident in the first amendment (the right to peaceably assemble)These rights were not penned for good times, they were penned for all times especially times of trial.
These rights were not meant to be suspended at whatever point people become frightened. If these rights can be suspended, then they are not RIGHTS, but merely allowances from dictatorial powers.
So I ask you to look into your soul, ask yourself what does America look like when this event is over? Are you ok with you government seizing this power? I need not remind you that the government isn’t known for giving power back after it’s seized.
Next it maybe a particular group deemed a threat. Before you say it’ll never happen; remember the”burning of the Reichstag” and “night of the long knives” the Germans never thought it was possible under Hitler either. The same can be said for the Russian people under Lenin and Stalin, others under Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, Mussolini, and the list goes on. It can happen and those who wrote our constitution knew these dangers all too well and risked life and treasure to ensure their posterity would not have to know these woes.

I was told recently that no one cares about a piece of paper whether the Constitution or the Bible. I’m thankful no one told the men who gave their lives this idea before they went into battle.
Why do we feel our generation has to sacrifice nothing, when so many have paid such a heavy price? Are we so entitled now we have forgotten why we have these freedoms? If we are not willing to stand against this trial and still stand for the constitution, we have to ask ourselves whether we deserve it at all. Are we worthy of their sacrifices? What will we leave for our children?
Just food for thought.
-Godspeed, and God bless us all.

Mayor
Brian Hobbs

 

 

Christian Ford Announcement For Jason Smalley Senate Seat (SD 28)

Tapp Into Common Sense is a site committed to fighting for Life and Liberty that will be posting candidacy announcements for candidates truly committed towards those goals here in Oklahoma.

We wholeheartedly endorse our good friend Christian Ford for Senate District 28! His announcement is below.D13BA810-C19F-4A68-8336-0EE9066C656E

“My name is Christian Ford and I am running for state senate district 28. I am a lifelong Oklahoman, and have lived in Chandler since I was 4 years old.

I am the current vice chair of Lincoln county GOP, I was honored to be able to help draft the 2019 Oklahoma Republican platform, one of the most conservative Republican platforms in the history of the state.

I had hoped that the legislature would take the platform we created and pass constitutionally sound conservative bills that would reflect what we the people wanted.

Instead the establishment leadership led the Oklahoma legislature in voting against many of the planks in our Oklahoma platform and in so doing have proved that they do not represent the grassroots republicans of this great State.

This is why I am running. I will seek as your senator to stand for God, family and country against those who would seek to destroy our Oklahoman way of life. From defending our God given right to keep and bear arms to restoring local control to our schools and seeking equal protection for the unborn, I will seek to adhere to our Oklahoma Republican platform and the biblical and constitutional values that have made our nation great! Right now these are perilous times as we see values being  attacked from radical socialist who wish to strip our God given rights away from us, this is no time to compromise. It’s time to take a stand and say “enough is enough”!! We will not sit idly by why babies in our state are murdered each business day and our country is attempting to be burned to the ground by ungodly socialist ideas that have and always will lead to tyranny. 

Our voices CAN and SHOULD be heard by OUR legislators!!! 

We must return to biblical conservative principles to make our State great again!!! 

Will you stand with me? Together we CAN make a difference at our state capital!!“

In Christ,
Christian Ford

Lincoln County GOP Vice Chairman

C2E225EC-A47A-4BA6-AAA7-C41F0682E34FCarissa Roberson announced last night her intention to challenge Greg McCortney for OK Senate District 13.  McCortney blocked the Oklahoma Abolition of Abortion Act (SB13) from being heard in the Health and Human Services Committee this year as well as blocking parental choice legislation which would have allowed parents to have more of a say in the health choices for their children.

Carissa Roberson issued her bio to us here:   “I live in Ada, Oklahoma. I was raised in Davis, Oklahoma. My husband, Greg, and I have been married for 16 years.  We have 8 children, four of which are still living at home, and 6 grandchildren. 

I am a stay-at-home mother, and we also homeschool. I have a vision in my heart for Oklahoma of life and liberty. I will fight to end abortion in Oklahoma, protect Second Amendment rights, work to uphold legislation that is pro-family, and oppose any tax increases.”

We at Tapp Into Commonsense wholeheartedly endorse Carissa Roberson for Senate District 13!  You can support and contribute to her campaign here: https://www.voteroberson2020.com/

 

11 MAR REAL ID ACT: THE DEATH OF OUR LIBERTY

04F650D2-A7CC-43B9-AF32-781D9BF6F1ECBy Tom Deweese

I am very concerned about the Real ID and its threat to our personal privacy and total surveillance by government. Most people have been led to believe that Real ID and E-Verify are the answers to controlling  illegal immigration and make us safer from fraud, and even terrorist attacks. Not so.Government has repeatedly proven to be untrustworthy and unworthy to be the keepers of our most valuable and precious personal information. Yet, today, most Americans are simply accepting and ignoring the growing government invasion of their lives.

For many years the American Policy Center, has worked directly with the Constitutional Alliance to expose the dangers of empowering government with our personal data, especially through the use of biometrics. The Constitutional Alliance is the nation’s leading expert on personal privacy matters, meeting with government officials and elected representatives at every level to issue their warnings of the dangers of a total surveillance system that is growing at an alarming rate. Now the Alliance has prepared a special report detailing this threat and what can be done about it. The Alliance has provided this vital report to APC to distribute across the nation.

KAY COUNTY GOP DIRECTS SEN. BILL COLEMAN TO SUPPORT SENATE BILL 13

By James Silberman

At their convention last Saturday, the Kay County (OK) GOP voted in favor of a resolution directing State Senator Bill Coleman and State Representatives John Pfeifer and Ken Luttrell to support the Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act (SB13). Tonkawa activist Daniel Watts introduced and spoke in favor of the resolution and the vote of the 21 Kay County Republican delegates was unanimous. The resolution reads:

WHEREAS, We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness;

WHEREAS, The Oklahoma Republican Party Platform directs on the Addendum of page 5 “Be it resolved that the abolition of abortion be brought to a full floor vote in both Oklahoma Legislative Chambers.”

WHEREAS. Abortion is considered a crime under Oklahoma Statutes 21-861 and 21- 862; and

WHEREAS, The 10th Amendment states that “(t)he powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States respectively, or to the people.”;

Be It Resolved, The Kay County Republican Party calls upon Senator Bill Coleman to co-author and fully support SB 13 (The Oklahoma Abolition of Abortion Act);

Resolved, The Kay County Republican Party calls upon Representatives John Pfeifer and Ken Luttrell and  to author a companion bill to SB 13 (The Oklahoma Abolition of Abortion Act).

Kay County is the third county to pass such a resolution, following Cimarronand Woodward Counties.

On Wednesday, Senator Coleman will have an opportunity to agree with or reject the new Kay County Republican platform when a motion to bring SB13 to the Senate floor is going to be filed. There will be a vote on whether to hear SB13 or to table it.

If you live in Oklahoma, and especially if you live in Kay County or Senate District 10, email and call Senator Coleman to tell him to support SB13 being brought to the floor and to cosponsor the bill as the resolution lays out.

Email: Bill.Coleman@OKSenate.gov

Cimarron County Republican Party Calls Upon Senator Casey Murdock/Representative Kenton Patzkowsky To Support SB 13

410058D0-80E6-42C9-A835-D170CAF68159The Cimarron County Republican Party Convention met at the PTCI Building in Boise City to discuss County Party business yesterday evening.

One of the first items was a Resolution from Cimarron County Republicans calling upon State Senator Casey Murdock and  Representative Kenton Patzkowsky to fully support SB 13 (The Oklahoma Abolition of Abortion Act).  The Cimarron County Republican Party Convention is the second Republican Convention in North West Oklahoma to pass  the Resolution overwhelmingly, following Woodward County’s passage of the Resolution two weeks ago. So far Senator Murdock and Representative Patzkowsky are among the numerous legislators who have refused to join the effort to make Oklahoma the first Abortion Free State and to support the Oklahoma Abolition of Abortion Act.

Two other Resolutions passed the County Convention overwhelmingly, The Sanctuary County For The Pre-Born Babies and The Sanctuary County For 2nd Amendment Rights.  Under these Resolutions all Cimarron County elected officials are directed to declare the County a Sanctuary County for pre-born people and for the 2nd Amendment.

Two rule proposals were also passed to be sent to the Oklahoma Republican Party State Convention, May 2nd to be considered on the Convention Floor.   The first  proposal guarantees every County participating in the Oklahoma GOP State Convention, Three Committee appointments instead of just 1 appointment which Cimarron County receives under the current formula.  The last rule proposal to pass mandates that before a candidate can be eligible for Oklahoma Republican Party support, he or she must read the Oklahoma Republican Party State Platform and mark up what he or she agrees with or opposes.

A special election was held for one of the two District Committee positions and all County Delegates were approved to attend the Republican 3rd Congressional District Convention, April 4th in Guthrie and the State Convention, May 2nd in Oklahoma City.

D213890B-63A5-48E5-A4E5-A29C661BA6F5It has been amazing to see so many pastors getting involved in recent weeks and months and this is a crucial opportunity for us to make our collective voice heard on behalf of those who will be murdered in our state if the Oklahoma State government does not take immediate action. And they need to hear from us as a group, knowing that the churches of Oklahoma will be behind them if they do what is right before God. Here are four things every Oklahoma Pastor needs to do:

1) Sign the petition.

2a) Share the petition on your facebook page as soon as possible, explain the importance of the petition, and tag every Oklahoma pastor you know who wants abortion to be abolished; or

2b) Message the petition to every Oklahoma pastor you know who wants abortion to be abolished as soon as possible.

3) Call your Senator to try to set up a meeting before Wednesday to exhort them to support SB13 being brought to the floor.

4) If possible, come to the Oklahoma State Capitol on Wednesday, March 11 from 9 am to noon to line the halls leading to the Senate Chamber and fill the Senate gallery up above the Senate floor. (This action is not just for pastors. Everyone who is able to make it on Wednesday for the motion needs to be there.)

If you are not a pastor, please message this petition to your pastor and any other pastors you know. Tell them they can reach out to me if they have any questions about SB13.

No Freedom of The Press In Oklahoma

This latest story is from the Ekklesia of Oklahoma.

No freedom of the press

Earlier today Christian journalists, media and Oklahoma citizens at the direction of Senator Kim David & Greg Treat, were removed from the Senate Media Box and prohibited from reporting Senator Bullard’s successful attempt to pass SB17( https://theekklesia.disciplemedia.com/posts/146?sh=NOHNjCha ).

This is in direct violation of the Freedom of The Press, freedom of speech and more specifically a discrimination against Christians, abolitionist and concerned citizens who hate abortion and desires to see its total and immediate end.

This further shows that King Treat and the wicked Senate Leadership whom all campaigned as “conservative, Christian and pro-life” will stop at nothing, even breaking the law to silence the truth, SB13 & Senator Silk. This is the failure of the pro-life movement and the fruit of the pro-life establishment.

It has been reported that legal counsel has been sought out and a formal lawsuit may be filed in the coming days.

EKK MEDIA

PS : We recognize everything we do is by the grace of God and the love, prayers and generosity of those who donate to The Ekklesia of Oklahoma. For this we are grateful and thank God for each of you and your love for the God and the pre-born!

HB 4040 Passes Out of Committee calls needed

Below, President of the Oklahoma Stock Grower’s Association, Brad Hutchison reports on the passage of HB 4040 out the Oklahoma Ag House Committee.  HB 4040 would label Oklahoma grown beef in Oklahoma at the supermarket for consumers who don’t wish to purchase foreign grown beef.

 

61037B94-8A93-4B60-8EFA-D41755341ED5

The legislative session began the first of February and OISA was there working on your behalf.  Here’s an update from OISA lobbyist, Rex Duncan.

HB-4040, by Speaker McCall, passed out of the House Rules Committee by a 7-0 vote.  It is now eligible to be heard on the House floor, this week or next.

Speaker McCall’s office told me yesterday, the bill will be heard on the floor.  Certain legislators are still opposed to the bill, and without mentioning names,  you would be correct to guess they are “movers and shakers” within the OCA and Farm Bureau circles.
The OISA should immediately contact your respective State Representatives,(House members) and ask them to vote “YES” ON HB-4040, by Speaker McCall.

Upcoming Meetings Featuring R-CALF USA’s  Bill Bullard.  Mark your calendars.

April 2nd Duncan, OK
April 20 Beaver, OK
April 21 Clayton, NM
Locations and times to be announced. Please watch for updates.
