First, our apologies for not having very many live shows for you over the past few weeks.  Between travels,  being the high season for our legislative advocacy work (and THE FLU!) we have been out of pocket more that we would have preferred.  Tonight we will do some catching up.

The Oklahoma legislature hit an important deadline this week to hear bills from their House of Orgin.  What that means is that bills not heard by March 14th would be effectively dead for this session.  This was a week of long nights for House members and handwringing for grassroots activists.

We will cover some of the wins and losses for Oklahoma grassroots activists but first, we will speak with Evan Handy.

Evan is an Oklahoma Republican activist currently working for a new group known as the Secure Oklahoma Coalition.  Secure Oklahoma is a grassroots coalition of taxpayers, small business owners, public employees and concerned Oklahomans committed to securing the state’s financial future through Oklahoma Public Employee Pension Reform.

Then, joining us to discuss the bills that lived or died is Jenni White, Executive Director of Restore Oklahoma Public Education (ROPE) and Mark Kreslins, Director of Oklahoma Liberty.

After that, we will share with you the news on HB1476 which would allow for a religious exemption from mandatory biometric enrollment via our state driver’s licenses and ID cards and hear from Rep. Ken Walker (Republican, D-70)  who is the House author on the bill.

Be sure to check back at this post later tonight for any additional show notes on these issues!

Your questions or comments are always welcome!

Local Groups to Hold Pro Liberty Rally
March 14, 2013

Durant, Ok – The Bryan County Republicans & Conservatives Club & Guns Across America Bryan County Oklahoma announced today that they will be celebrating our Constitutional Right to freespeech by holding a Pro Liberty Rally Saturday, March 30, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at the Historical Market Square in downtown Durant, Oklahoma. Guest speaker will be the honorable Oklahoma State Senator Nathan Dahm, author of three separate bills asserting the 2nd Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Particularly of note is Dahm’s Oklahoma State Senate Bill S.B. 548, which is an assertion of the 10th Amendments State Rights stating that Oklahoma would protect our right to keep and bear arms by “opposing all unconstitutiona l laws, orders, or regulations imposed by the federal government that violate” those rights.
Local Liberty and Grassroots activist, radio host, and author Howard Houchen will also be a speaker.
Past rallies have included speeches from Rep. Dustin Roberts, State Senator Josh Brecheen, and City Council Candidate Stewart Hoffman who pledged to work with our State Representatives in their efforts to attract gun manufacturers and high paying jobs to our community as part of our support for our freedoms. Local Pastors and Community Members have also taken the stage to comment on the importance of exercising our First Amendment rights to protect our 2nd Amendment rights and more in this time of unprecedented government growth.

Various other state and local leaders are also expected to speak about our rights granted us by the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the Constitution, designed to protect the rights of liberty and property, and guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government’s, and reserve some powers to the states and public, including the right to free speech, the right to keep and bear arms, unreasonable search and seizure, fair trial by jury, civil rights and much more.

We will also be celebrating our right to vote by serving free hotdogs to attendees who vote early in the April 2nd local city council election in Durant. Free transportation will be provided to the polls that day until 1:00 pm, and voter registration tables will be available for those who wish to vote in future elections. Early voting is available Friday (March 29, 8a-6p), Sat (March 30, 8a-1p) , and Monday (April 1, 8a-6p), before elections at the Bryan County Election Board at 217 N 16th Ave in Durant.

At the rally, show us your “I voted” sticker and enjoy free charbroiled hotdogs and all the trimmings, on us!

The Bryan County Republican and Conservatives Club is a Conservative group of citizens that are concerned about the future of our great Nation. Guns Across America is a nationwide network of gun owners and proponents of gun ownership, who have coalesced to protect our God given rights to keep and bear arms.

Dr. Keith Smith, Oklahoma Surgical Center

Next, we are honored to be speaking with Keith Smith, MD of the Oklahoma Surgery Center.

“Three years ago, Dr. Keith Smith, co-founder and managing partner of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, took an initiative that would only be considered radical in the health care industry: He posted online a list of prices for 112 common surgical procedures. The 51-year-old Smith, a self-described libertarian, and his business partner, Dr. Steve Lantier, founded the Surgery Center 15 years ago, after they became disillusioned with the way patients were treated at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, where the two men worked as anesthesiologists. In 1997, Smith and Lantier bought the shell of a former surgical center with the aim of creating a for-profit facility that could deliver first-rate care at a fraction of what traditional hospitals charge.”  Read more about Dr. Keith Smith and the Oklahoma Surgical Center; ‘Oklahoma Doctors vs. Obamacare’, Reason Magazine, Nov. 15, 2012

A Warning to Oklahoma Activists about Al Gerhart

Kaye Beach

Nov 27, 2012

“This would be a good time to take your medicine and remain silent about anything i do or say”

That is the message I received from Al Gerhart this morning.

Although I loath to have to write about this on my personal blog, I feel I have no choice because I have realized that some of my friends that have not had to spend time at ground zero with Al Gerhart, do not know the extent of his abusiveness towards other grassroots activists and this is why I have chosen to make my remarks on the situation both clear and public, so that they will know.

The grassroots activists in Oklahoma has a poison in their midst. The poison is Al Gerhart of the Sooner Tea Party.

I do not want to make a public logbook of all each and every harm caused by the man so you can take my words of caution for what you believe they are worth and you are welcome to contact me privately if you have any questions.

I tolerated Gerhart far longer than I should have.  It was some months ago when I knew for certain that he invariably destroys nearly everything he touches and that there is no tolerating of him.  At that point I pointedly and  publicly severed ties. But that did not free me from the damage caused by Gerhart.  Without fail people and projects that I love have crossed paths with the man since causing damage and heartache to all touched by him.  He also will not refrain from exercising  a vendetta against any and all that he feels have crossed him in some way making my first choice of a peaceful parting of ways impossible.

I have few gifts and many faults but one of those gifts is the ability to work with and find common ground with just about anyone.  I truly like people, all kinds of people,  and that fact is evident in all that I do.

When Al Gerhart came on the activism scene in 2009, I thought he was ‘different’.  And he was.  To his credit, he is one of the hardest workers I have ever known.  Nothing deters him from his goals.  He doesn’t scare easily and never backs down.  He is also pretty smart.  Adjusting to Al Gerhart was a tough challenge but since he was obviously here to stay and slap in the middle of most things I was working on, I accepted him the same way I do any activist.  To each his own!  Let’s face it, there aren’t enough of us that are paying attention to our government and even less that are willing to speak up and work hard to correct the problems we see.  Al’s greatest fault is the fact that he is built to be a hammer and everything and everyone looks like a nail to him.  He cannot discern between freind or foe and nothing and no one is sacred to him.  And he has proven time and again, we are all fair game.

Many people have found themselves discomforted with Al’s tactics when it comes to legislators and officials.  We have justified it to ourselves by thinking that they choose to take office and harsh comments from the public goes with the territory.  Also, with the level of frustration we have feeling ignored and inconsequential in matters of our governance, we chose to condone Al’s behavior towards these public officials even though in many of our minds, he went too far for our tastes.

Then we come to a problem that hits a little closer to home and that is the level of abuse heaped upon ordinary grassroots activists that displease ‘Al the Terrible’ in some manner.  Now, Al justifies this type of behavior by saying that “We must also hold our conservative group leaders accountable.”  By ‘accountable’ he means dishing out brutal punishment to these people that is all out of proportion to any ‘crime’.  Now mind you, I am talking about people like you who are not paid and don’t get anything out of their work but personal satisfaction.   These are people that are concerned about the antics of government and are endeavoring in some way to change things for the better.  Nothing more, nothing less but in the mind of Al Gerhart, these people’s perceived transgressions are worthy of what amounts to public humiliation.

Out of respect, I am not going to name these respected activists that Al Gerhart has maligned..   If you read this blog or have even a superficial level of involvement in grassroots conservative politics-you know them and you respect them.  If you read the Sooner Tea Party newsletter, you have read it.

An example punishment meted out to these activists that far exceeds any ‘crime’ there is the instance of a Christian Pastor and well respected conservative activist who dared challenge Al Gerhart.   He is punished by depicting him, both graphically and textually,  as a victim of homosexual rape.

For the average activist transgressor, they are treated to paragraph after paragraph of accusations of being sniveling cowards and liars and fools while Gerhart spins his story in such a way that he always come out the hero.

For the handicapped transgressor, Al has no problem poking fun at their physical condition.

Even when he takes up the cause of good men, he does so by filthy means that ends up staining the good man’s reputation.

I am presently the target of Al Gerhart.  In my case I have punished for my independent actions that displeased Al Gerhart and this, in Gerhart’s twisted mind,  warrants me a public shaming via his weekly newsrag.

Most recently, he is upset with me because his public public taunting of myself and others I care about have earned him the threat of a single blow to his delicate snotlocker should I ever be presented the opportunity of doing so.  Maybe I was wrong to say such a thing but I was at a loss for how to respond rationally to an irrational person.  For this insult to the dignity of the great and powerful Al, I get a write up as being not only a coward but a horridly obese woman and a “Sasquatch” in his weekly newsletter.   (If you want to read his pathetic attempt to humiliate me  into silence, you can do so here.  The diatribe is towards the bottom under “A Reader Responds”)  If Al was the psychological mastermind that he thinks he is, he would have known that it is my brains and not my butt that I prize so much and that I happen to think my butt is fine and his words would do nothing to change that fact.

In other writings, I have been called profane names and have been misrepresented in a number of ways but he has done far worse to others.  This is the virtual equivalent of a tar and feathering.

This morning I received more warnings from Mr. Gerhart who is apparently feeling the effects of his own boorish behavior in the form of good people withdrawing their support of him.  He sent me a text message asking me if I have unfiled tax returns and warning that;

“This would be a good time to take your medicine and remain silent about anything i do or say”

I told him I would not be quiet and that I am not afraid of him.

to which he responded;

 “Choose your path wisely. I’ve treated you gently so far but that can change if need be. I meant the good things i wrote about your work, it would be a shame if you didn’t learn your lesson”

My two word response to his threat?

“Bite it”

Over the years since I have known Al,  I have witnessed his reaction to what he sees as  the most serious threat of all, the threat of someone getting between him and the drug that he is addicted to; Power and Control.  That means I am surely in for it because I fully intend to challenge his power and control when it come to my life and the people I care about.

I know from his past behavior that he will spend hours and hours working on a blistering write up filled with lies, half truths and garden variety spin meant to exalt himself and  and pound his target into submission.

A good example is a recent 23,000 word screed authored by Al Gerhart and posted to a popular Ron Paul message board that literally left hapless forum reader breathless at the sheer volume of words created by this maniac.  Most did not read the novel but it did earn a top spot as the most lengthy posts ever written on that site.

Yes, I am certainly in for it aren’t I?   But  I will not be silent about the things he does and says and I will not take my medicine.  I do not fear of him, my Father has my back and at the end of the day, Al Gerhart can take it up with him.

Furthermore, I will take this opportunity  to entreat upon the conscious of those who continue to support this man either by subscribing to his venomous newsletter or by their silence in the face of his vile attacks against people they may not know to do the right thing and deprive him of oxygen.

I have often said when people thank me for my work that their words are my payday.  Al is no different.  The work he does pays only in his personal satisfaction.  Your subscription to his newsletter gives him great joy.  In fact, he can see from the newsletter client he uses, when each person opens it, how long they spend reading it and even who they forward it to.  He treasures these logs of your attention like a miser counting his money. He pores over them often as evidence that he matters, that he has influence and power.

Now let me say that Al has provided some value to his readers in the form of good information and exposing wrongdoing.  I wish he would keep to that.  At the same time, he has also done his readers a disservice by letting personal vendettas interfere with the facts so that it is hard to trust what he writes.  I realized the last time I tried to give him the facts on his faulty reporting and he rejected it, that he cares nothing for the truth and I could not trust his information and therefor it was of little value.

I  have already deprived Mr. Gerhart his ‘payday’ a while back by unsubscribing from his venom filled newsletter.  I hope others will search their conscious too and do exactly what Gerhart repeatedly reminds his readers to do, hold him accountable.

HR 1004 Discharge Petition-Calling All Oklahoma Activists for Representative and Open Government!

Kaye Beach

March 2, 2012

Last legislative session, Rep. Charles Key offered an Amendment to the legislative rules (dubbed the “Open Government Rule”) which provided that all of our elected representatives would get a hearing on a bill if requested.  The amendment failed after leadership left the vote open for a very long time so that they could “whip” recalcitrant house members into switching their Yay votes to Nay votes.  The measure thus failed

The problem: Bills are assigned to committees whose chairmen exercise dictatorial control over whether a bill gets a fair hearing. Without discussion or vote, chairmen can arbitrarily kill any legislation they choose.

If a legislator is unable to get his or her bill heard, then representative government is essentially dead. Many good bills never get a fair hearing and recorded vote because the committee chairman chooses not to hear them. Legislators are able to avoid taking a public position on difficult issues. The people are the losers.

The solution is the Open Government Rule: The House and Senate need to change their rules to assure that every bill that a legislator wants heard gets a fair hearing in committee and recorded vote. And every bill that passes committee gets a fair hearing and recorded vote on the floor.

This rule change will assure that the people, through their representatives, get a fair hearing for their ideas. Just as important, the people will be able to hold their representatives accountable. No longer will politicians be able to say one thing while doing something else.

One More Chance – The Discharge Petition

House rules allow for discharge petitions as a means to get a bill brought out of a committee for a vote on the House floor.  We need the signatures of 66 House members to get HR 1004 (read HR1004) discharged from committee and on the House floor for a vote.

Right now we have 45 signatures but we need a minimum of 66 signatures.  That means we need 21 more signatures in order to get HR 1004 to the floor for a vote.

Your help is needed!

On Wednesday March 7, 2012, grassroots activists from across Oklahoma interested in ensuring transparent and representative government throughout the entire legislative process will meet for a petition drive for HR 1004 at the Oklahoma State Capitol at 9 am. 

RSVP on Facebook!  Oklahoma Action Alert – HR 1004 Discharge Petition Drive

We will gather on the first floor rotunda and then go door to door giving our Red List legislators an opportunity to sign the discharge petition.  The Media will be present to cover this effort so make sure you look sharp!

 

Here are the score cards.

he names of legislators in GREEN have already signed the petition.  Thank these legislators!

The names of legislators in RED have not yet signed the petition.  These are the ones we will be asking for their signature on Wednesday March 7th

The Race for Nominee – Okla. GOP Insider ‘We must find delegates who will stop Ron Paul’ The Oklahoma Truth Council

Kaye Beach

Jan. 19, 2012

 

 

As you already know, in order for any candidate to become president,  he must win the GOP nomination first.   What you might not know is that it is the delegates, not ordinary voters, who will be voting to pick the GOP nominee.  This is where the grassroots activists passion and mettle can make all the difference.

Yesterday I was given the opportunity to explain the importance of the delegate process to other Ron Paul supporters on Inforwars Nightly News with Aaron Dykes. You can access that video here 

Oklahoma Ron Paul grassroots caught the eye of the popular news site when Tulsa area activists for Paul wrote this article, How to Get Ron Paul Elected, that Infowars subsequently published.

The Oklahoma GOP Precinct meetings begin the first week of February.  Find out more.

The Oklahoma Truth Council has posted a very good article explaining the process and its pitfalls.

From the Oklahoma Truth Council posted on Jan. 16, 2012;

Delegate Decision

The Race for Nominee is Not Over… It’s Barely Started!

Oklahoma Precinct Meetings have not even taken place, yet the battle for Oklahoma’s votes for the Republican nomination for President are already in contention. While much focus has been placed on the actual “voting” for President, sources inside the Oklahoma Republican Party have confirmed that Super Tuesday is not where the battle is being fought.

New rules adopted by the Oklahoma Republican Party state that while Delegates to the National Convention must vote in accordance with the mathematical split will of the Oklahoma Electorate, they are only required to do so through the second round of balloting. On the third ballot, delegates are free to vote for the nominee of their choice.

This, added to the fact that many states changed their rules to similar formats like Oklahoma means that if no candidate has the required 1,144 delegate votes at the time of the convention, then it will be the delegates and NOT the voters who actually select the nominee for President.

While the press seems to be determined to proclaim that Mitt Romney is the de facto nominee for winning two states, the fact is that the proportional delegate counts from New Hampshire and Iowa makes the race extremely close. Romney leads with 14 delegates, Paul has 10 delegates, Rick Santorum has 8 delegates, Huntsman, Gingrich, and Perry each have two delegates.

This has led some within the Republican Party to begin shaping the delegate pool to insure that they have people on board to “play ball.” There are even reports that the recruitment of delegates is at the exclusion of one candidate. One Republican Party insider even stated that “we must find delegates who will stop Ron Paul.”

OK-SAFE Q and A about the 2011Joint Legislative Committee and Health Care Reform Law

Kaye Beach

Nov. 17, 2011

From OK-SAFE’s Blog;

OK-SAFE, Inc.

AP reporter Sean Murphy on Tuesday asked OK-SAFE Executive Director Amanda Teegarden for some comments about the 2011 Joint Legislative Committee and Health Care Reform Law. (Teegarden spoke to this committee on 11/3/11 in Tulsa.)

Formed at the conclusion of the last legislative session to examine the impact of the federal health care reform law on Oklahoma, this committee held its’ fifth (and final) meeting on Tuesday, 11/15/11 in the House chambers.

 

Here are the questions that were asked (follow this link to OK-SAFE’s Blog to read the answers)

-Do you think the Oklahoma Legislature should ignore the federal requirement that a health care exchange be established? If so, why? 

 -What about the provision that provides if a state doesn’t establish an exchange, the feds will do it for them?

-Do you think the state should count on the health care law being overturned/dismantled by a the Supreme Court or a future administration?

-What are your thoughts about the ability of the tea party and other grassroots conservative groups like yours to successfully fight against the establishment of the exchanges and to resist the implementation of the federal health care law in Oklahoma?

-What are your thoughts in general about this task force and the work they’ve conducted, recommendations they should make

Meredith Dake reports about the lawsuit aimed at Andrew Breitbart and Larry O’Connor the head of Breitbart.tv.  Papers were served these gentlemen at CPAC Meridith Dake was there and she will give us the rest of the story.

Meredith writes:

Meredith writes-I am a contributor at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism and Big Hollywood and know Andrew personally. I have a close association with the other defendant in this lawsuit, Larry O’Connor. I am the producer/co-host for his nightly internet radio show.

This email (or post) and all the information it contains have been obtained organically through my own investigation and research across the internet, including the “Bigs” sites. I am the original and only author of this email (or post). No one, including Andrew, Larry, or anyone associated with Breitbart.com contributed or has knowledge that I’m even writing this. This is all my own doing. Why? Because when I saw this bully tactic in the form of a lawsuit I became incensed. This story infuriates me and I’m going to do my very best to respond.

States Consider Allowing Guns on Campus

Published February 23, 2011

Gun control is a hot-button issue across the country, and college campuses are now at the center of this growing debate.

Students and professors at Texas public universities may soon be able to carry guns on campus, according to a recent measure in the state’s House of Representatives. More than half of its members have signed on as co-authors of the measure, and the Senate passed a similar bill in 2009.

Eight other states including Arizona, Tennessee, Michigan, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Florida, Nebraska and Mississippi have pending “campus carry” legislation underway as well, according to David Burnett, director of public relations for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.

Adrienne O’Reilly, the Oklahoma Director of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus joins us tonight and explains why she is advocating for four bills filed in the Oklahoma state legislature that will allow concealed carry by licensed individuals on college campuses.  Adrienne says that these bills are in danger of dying without ever being heard.  We will get an update on these bills from Adrienne and find out what we can do to help bring concealed carry to Oklahoma college campuses.

A list of common objections to concealed carry on campus and the answers to the objections can be found here

“The best activist training I have taken so far.  Political reality is laid out in an easy to comprehend manner.  They don’t just tell you what the problem is; they give you a road map to strike back.  Absolutely a must do training event.” Al Gerhart, Co-Founder, Sooner Tea Party.  Founder, Oklahoma Constitutional Alliance

“The slides and training were extremely informative and educational – your real-world experience and anecdotes really hit home and were relevant to the materials.  It was a pretty intense class – lots of information in a single day, but we got through it!” Jeremy T. Goemaat, President, LogicBox, Inc.

“Your training is OUTSTANDING.  I’m not one to be able to sit for more than 1 hour at a lecture style presentation, but honest to God, that’s the best political training I’ve ever seen.” Jeff Greenspan, Arizona Campaign for Liberty
