November Prediction for Oklahoma

Trump will win Oklahoma–sadly enough. However, he will lose the race overall. Oklahoma is Trump safe zone. That being said, the state is on the verge of becoming a GOP dictatorship with a proposed bill in the state legislature dealing with the election of our judiciary. If that were to go through, Fallin would be in charge of the governor’s office, the legislature, and the judiciary. That’s still in the works.

However, in Nov. some of the State questions on the ballot in Oklahoma are the real totalitarian things of nightmares, if passed I hope they will be challenged and thwarted. If the judiciary thing were to go through next year or sometime in the future, conceivably, there would be no great decent way to challenge them in the future.

That leads us to State elections, there are the seats we have to fill. Hopefully, we will fill them with sane people who love Oklahoma. Adding good people to Oklahoma seats will help in a big way. Anyway, rest assured that Trump will not be the next president of the United States. I just wish we all could get together to challenge the GOP and the Libertarian party in Oklahoma in a better way.

Law and Order Christians

One World House

book-of-discipline_sm

“Law and Order” was a dog whistle used by the Nixon campaign in its well documented Southern Strategy to take the White House. It was heard by many, especially in the South, as a way of putting black people back in their place. If the concepts and practice of law and order are used to provide equality of opportunity and equal protection under the law, then they are an important basis for a flourishing society, but that was not what Nixon was appealing to. He and his advisors knew the message that an emphasis on law and order would send to white conservative voters, especially in the South. It was a law that protected the interests of white male supremacy and order that kept inequality in place. Sadly, that legacy continues to this day.

“Law and Order” Christians are also using similar language to keep persons who are LGBTQIA in…

Gary Johnson is Worse than Donald Trump

Benjamin Studebaker

Since Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton, I’ve heard a number of Sanders supporters indicate that they’re considering supporting Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party’s nominee. We need to nip this in the bud right now. Gary Johnson is by far the most reactionary and right wing candidate in the race, especially on economic issues. I didn’t write him a candidate evaluation because in 2012 he received less than 1% of the vote, but a recent poll says 10% of Sanders supporters are now willing to support Johnson. If you are a Johnson supporter or you know someone who is, there’s some important information about Johnson and the Libertarians that everyone needs to know.

Charter schools and Oklahoma

donnacliffordjones

I saw a post last week that the Oklahoma government was considering an investigation into radical Islamic terrorism in the state. I was also listening to the BBC news recently in their discussions about the Turkish coup and how Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania, was accused of being involved with the coup. Even though he denies this, he is still considered a “controversial” person and is supposed to be involved with a number of “questionable” charter schools across the United States. Oklahoma was specifically named in the BBC program. I couldn’t grasp the gist of what they were saying at the time but I found this article which explains more. Apparently in 2015, the Center for Security Policy named four Gulen-affiliate charter schools in Oklahoma.

I quote from the article:

“The Turkish government accused Islamic cleric Fethullah Gülen of organizing Friday’s failed military coup. While the reportedly…

85 and Remembering the Third Reich

Tonight while at work, I met a lady who was 86 years old and she had been here in America since 1950. She was from Germany and remembered living under the third Reich. She remembers the political ideology of Nazi Germany very well. It was her entire childhood. She began to talk about the current election cycle and expressed a genuine fear for what she is seeing in this country.

I asked her about Donald Trump.

With fear in her eyes, she began speaking of World War II. She began speaking about her family going off to fight in the war against the Soviets. She has seen totalitarian regimes up close and personal and left Europe as a young woman to get away from them. When she began to speak about Donald Trump, she spoke from a voice of experience. She spoke about how dangerous he is and how if he was elected president that she would go back to Germany to escape the world he would bring us into.

It is one thing for us to simply make the comparison of him to a young Adolf Hitler, but for it to come from a true voice of experience is a completely different thing. When he says he would murder the families of the enemies of the state, it is very telling. When he wants to build a wall across our border to protect America from people coming into this country it is even more telling. When he speaks on increased monitoring for Muslims just because of their faith, it shows you the kind of man we are dealing with. When he speaks of committing war crimes and rounding up people without their constitutional rights and holding them, it shows you where we are as a nation. When we throw away all of our rights for security from perceived threats and develop an us vs. them mentality, that is exactly what the UN defines as the first steps towards genocide.

We are living in very dangerous times.

This is not a post telling you who to vote for, but this is a plea for people to look closer at the language being used by those that seek power. I’ve made that very same claim about Donald Trump before. Dangerous men play off of fear. Do not let yourself be captivated by claims of making America great again.
