Clearing the Air on the Oklahoma E-cigarette War

Kaye Beach

Feb. 11, 2014

Recently I wrote an article for The Oklahoma Constitution on the politics and money behind the e-cigarette bans in our state.

Many credible health experts have also noted a curious imbalance regarding the claims made by some public health advocates about
e-cigarette health dangers. . . .  Judging from the reaction to the sudden spate of prohibitions on vaping in our state, the public t buying the hype either. What most people want to know is,  why are they being banned? Who is being hurt by the use of an electronic cigarette? . . . This innovative technology is not a threat to public health but is a grave threat to the entire multi-billion tobacco industry as it exists today.

. . .You’ll find TSET grant funding everything from OETA to bike racks, but let’s look at the “Communities of Excellence in Tobacco Control” incentive grants that are driving the vapor bans.

You can read the article ‘Clearing the Air on the Oklahoma E-cigarette War’ in its entirety  at The Oklahoma Constitution.

Privacy is the antidote to surveillance and if you think about it, the balance of power between citizens and their government  has a lot to do with what is seen and unseen.

The Balance of Power Privacy

We want a fig leaf on the government and a fur coat on us but right now, it is obviously the other way around.  Privacy is worth protecting and not because we are doing anything wrong (the vast majority of the many millions under suspicion surveillance are ordinary law abiding people!)  but because this dragnet that has been cast over us has, and will continue to upset the balance of power that keeps We The People free!

So this show will be focused on privacy issues not because we want to take a bubble bath but because the structure of a free society demands it.

David Slane, David Slane and Associates

Because of my privacy advocacy and Mr. Slanes legal expertise,  our paths have often intersected.  I am so glad to finally get the opportunity to  have a real conversation with him.

david slane

David Slane is an Oklahoma Criminal Defense Attorney and native Oklahoman recognized as an expert in the law.  He works as the Legal Analyst for several OKC TV Stations and often weighs in on matters regarding privacy and civil liberties.  Website for David Slane and Associates

For example, on May 17, Slane  publicly raises an important question regarding the mysterious fee increase for Oklahoma driver’s licenses  – are we funding further implementation of the Federal Real ID Act? (which is prohibited by Oklahoma law)  The Dept. of Public Safety was conveniently unable to respond to that question at the time of airing and to date, Oklahoman’s still don’t know exactly what it is the fee hike is paying for exactly.

Also; Fox 25 Covers Consumer Concerns About Driver’s License Scanning, April 7, 2012

And David Slane has also been called upon to address the drone versus privacy issue; Oklahoma Researchers Test Drones That Can Detect Guns, April 8, 2013

And on the topic of  Automatic License Plate Readers (one of my favorite technologies to despise!), David Slane says;

“I think it’s an invasion of your privacy,” said attorney David Slane. “You’re driving down the street and they’re reading your license plate. Each day we see a new thing happening involving our rights and if we don’t stop somewhere, there aren’t going to be any rights left.”

**Side note: If you follow David on Twitter you will get the benefit of being first in the know regarding many major Oklahoma news stories.  (I check his tweets often for that very reason)

Tonight,  we  will get David’s thoughts on the legalities of  biometric ID, drones and NSA spying. 

angry emoticaon

Government Spying – yes! We are MAD!

And that emoticon guy doesn’t really do our outrage justice.

It’s really more like this!

As you can imagine, Howard and I have plenty to say about the recent revelations that the NSA is indeed indescrimaely collecting personal data on millions of Americans.  Yes – We are frustrated and angry!  This is a good thing.  The worst thing would be to feel overwhelmed, intimidated and to fall silent because that is exactly the effect that  government surveillance is intended produce.  We have to push back now while we still can and we need to be empowered to protect our personal information.

While there is no 100% method to protecting your data, there are some simple changes of habit we can adopt and many tools available that can diminish our vulnerability to government spies and data hoarders.

Donovan Farrow, Alias Forensics

We are excited to introduce Donovan Farrow.  Donovan  has expertise in the ways of the internet and the secret travels of data, to give us just some of the most basic and essential tips to protect our privacy.

alias forensics logo

Donovan is the founder and owner of Alias Forensics which is a digital forensic company located in Oklahoma City.  Donovan is a computer forensic examiner.   That means is plain language, he’s the computer whisperer.  Donovan can take digital data that would be gobbledy-gook to most of us and translate these data for us.  Donovan often takes his knowledge to the courts where he is called upon to ensure the digital data that is being presented  in court was collected with integrity and  that it is factually correct. He is an interpreter.

I have heard horror stories about people sent up the river for an illegal image or information on their computer that they had no knowledge of.  Donovan can find out where the offending information actually came from and how it got there in the first place so the innocent might have a fighting chance. This is probably a shameful oversimplification but hopefully you get the picture.

Be sure to note the call in number below because you will want to take advantage of the opportunity to ask our two expert guests some questions!

After tonight’s show, AxXiom For Liberty, will be taking a two moth hiatus –But when we come back we will be giving some real attention to practical solutions to bolster our opacity and increase government and corporate transparency.

Ron Maxwell is an independent film director who is best known for his work writing and directing the epic Civil War films Gettysburg and Gods and GeneralsHis newest film, Copperhead, is set to premier on June 28, 2013

copperhead

“Copperhead is unlike any Civil War movie to date. It is a film of the war at home—of a family ripped apart by war, of fathers set against sons and daughters, of a community driven to an appalling act of vengeance against a man who insists on exercising his right to free speech during wartime. A story of the violent passions and burning feuds that set ablaze the homefront during the Civil War, Copperhead the movie is also a timeless and deeply moving examination of the price of dissent, the place of the individual amidst the hysteria of wartime, and the awful cost of war—a cost measured not in dollars but in fractured families, broken loves, and men dead before their time.” Read more

See the Trailer for Copperhead here

Melinda Pillsbury Foster

In the second hour, it is our great pleasure to have Melinda Pillsbury Foster, Executive Vice-President– Rebuild America Campaign, as our guest.

************************************
global biometric id

Your photo in your state driver’s license or ID card IS a Biometric

Mark Lerner explains:

Biometric is defined as: Measurements of the body. There are both physiological and behavioral biometrics.  For the sake of this document the focus will be on facial recognition and photographs.

There has been a great deal of conversation and equal amount of confusion about whether a photograph of an individual is a biometric.   The answer is “yes”.  Whether the photograph is an analog (old Polaroid photos) or a digital photograph, a photograph is a biometric.  The question becomes why are digital facial images/photographs now used instead of the older analog photos that were used on driver’s licenses and other identification documents?  The simple answer is the accuracy of the matching or comparison between one photograph and another is greatly increased when working with digital facial images.

One way to examine the question of whether a photograph is a biometric is by looking at photographs and fingerprints.  It is widely accepted to the point of being undisputed, that a fingerprint is a biometric.  Consider that when a person places a finger on a ink pad and then places that same finger on a piece of paper, the result is a fingerprint on the piece of paper.  Now let’s look at a photograph.  The photograph of a person’s face the equivalent of fingerprint, only the photograph is a representation of a person’s face instead of their finger tip.

Just as there are fingerprints that are not of sufficient quality to allow for computer automated comparisons, the same is true of photographs.  It is for this reason that we see standards for the collection of both fingerprints and photographs.  These “standards” are the minimum acceptable standards for the computer automated analysis/comparison.

The question of whether a photograph is in itself a biometric is especially important today because of the use of facial recognition software.  Facial recognition (software) in its simplest terms is described as follows:

Facial recognition systems are computer-based security systems that are able to automatically detect and identify human faces. These systems depend on a recognition algorithm, such as eigenface or the hidden Markov model. The first step for a facial recognition system is to recognize a human face and extract it fro the rest of the scene. Next, the system measures nodal points on the face, such as the distance between the eyes, the shape of the cheekbones and other distinguishable features. These nodal points are then compared to the nodal points computed from a database of pictures in order to find a match. Obviously, such a system is limited based on the angle of the face captured and the lighting conditions present. New technologies are currently in development to create three-dimensional models of a person’s face based on a digital photograph in order to create more nodal points for comparison. However, such technology is inherently susceptible to error given that the computer is extrapolating a three-dimensional model from a two-dimensional photograph.  http://epic.org/privacy/facerecognition/

Today in the United States and in other countries there has been a great deal of discussion about “facial recognition” in particular and more generally “surveillance”.

It is not widely known that all states in the United States are “capturing” a digital facial image/photograph that is facial recognition compatible.   Real ID compliant and non-Real ID compliant states use the same standard for the digital facial image/photograph capture.  Every state works with AAMVA (American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators).

AAMVA has adopted the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) standard that is required by the Real ID Act (page 68, footnote 17, Notice of Proposed Rule Making, Real ID Act 2005).  In addition, the vendors who have been awarded state driver’s license contracts have adopted the same standard as called for in the Real ID Act 2005.

The following is the wording that articulates the standard for AAMVA, the vendors who have been awarded state driver’s license contracts and the Real ID Act 2005.  This wording is taken from page 68, footnote 17 of the Notice of Proposed Rule Making for the Real ID Act 2005.

“The relevant ICAO standard is ICAO 9303 Part 1 Vol. 2, specifically ISO/IEC 19794-5 – Information technology -Biometric data interchange formats – Part 5: Face image data, which is incorporated into ICAO 9303.”

In conclusion, there should no longer be a question in anyone’s mind that the photographs of a person’s face which are contained in every respective state Department of Motor Vehicle photo database is a biometric.

Tonight on AxXiom For Liberty with Kaye Beach and Howard Houchen Narconon in Our Schools,  Gov. Ed Money Pit  and Loopy Legislation

Listen Live-LogosRadioNetwork.com  click ‘Listen’ then choose your Internet speed.  Logos Radio Network is a listener supported, free speech radio network and your contributions are vital but you do not have to be a subscriber in order to hear the show.

We are going to cover a lot of ground tonight.

First up are Colin Henderson and David Love,  returning guests to AxXiom For Liberty.  Colin and David are two untiring activists seeking to expose the deceptive and dangerous practices of Narconon and Scientology.

Colin Henderson sought help for his addiction at Narconon Arrowhead, a drug rehabilitation facility located in Canadian Oklahoma, in 2007.  He quickly became a critic of Narconon for their practices which he says are both deceptive and dangerous.

David Love, originally from British Columbia, was both a client and a staffer at the Narconon rehabilitation facility in Trois-Rivieres, half way between Montreal and Quebec City. He left in disgust taking with him masses of documentation on fraud and abuse in Narconon (NN) Trois-Rivieres (TR) facility in 2009. On April 17, 2012, Quebec health officials ordered the Narconon in Trois-Rivières to close saying that Narconon’s methods were dangerous for patients and violated Quebec’s health and safety criteria governing rehabilitation centers.

Colin and David will get us up to speed on the latest news regarding Narconon and help shed light on some of Scientology’s more insidious practices such as the one Howard Houchen encountered recently.

Narconon is a Scientology based drug rehabilitation program with facilities located worldwide including the state of Oklahoma.  Scientology has many fronts but all roads seem to lead gaining more recruits and money to fill the coffers of the church of Scientology.  Even so, you would not expect to find a trace of Scientology in a public school in the sleepy little town of Hugo Oklahoma.  Howard knows better.  He is going to explain how Narconon came to his child’s school and what he did about it.

Brandon Dutcher, OCPA

We will also get to hear Howard’s interview with Brandon Dutcher, the Vice President of Policy at OCPA (Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs) an Oklahoma individual liberty, free market policy research organization.  Howard and Brandon discuss the 91 million tax-payer dollars recently bestowed upon Oklahoma’s education system.  Brandon says that it is sheer folly to keep giving more money to this ‘failed government monopoly.’

Take a look at the numbers in Brandon Dutcher’s article for OCPA on the issue;  Oklahoma’s monopoly education system gets more money

Amanda Teegarden, Exec. Dir. OK-SAFE

We are also very pleased to welcome back Amanda Teegarden, the Executive Director of OK-SAFE, Inc. (Oklahomans for Sovereignty and Free Enterprise).

They say nothing happens by accident in politics and I am beginning to believe that this is true.   In the legislative process at least, I’m ready to vouch for it.  Amanda is going to shed some light on the process by examining two recent pieces of legislation that caused some confusion and controversy.   I think you will find this peek behind the curtain very interesting.

I will be sure to add any relevant links and articles after the show.

We have a great show lined up for you tonight!

Guests: Amanda Teegarden and David Weston-OK candidates for state GOP Char and Debbie Lewis, independent researcher, freelance writer and photographer and documentary writer for the new film Peddling Influence as well as other great documentaries.

Oklahoma Republicans are just days away from their annual state convention. This year the top order of business is electing new party officers including the state GOP Chair. First up tonight Howard and I will be speaking with the two candidates vying for that position- Amanda Teegarden and David Weston.

Amanda Teegarden

Amanda Teegarden has announced her candidacy for the State Chair of the Oklahoma Republican Party.
Teegarden’s experience in grassroots education and activism convinced
her that “the only way to solve our current crisis is to truly become
the party of the people. Oklahoma has a strong history of populism,
based upon self-reliance, neighborliness, community and civic
involvement that accounts for the unique character so many people admire
in our citizens,”.

“That means making our precincts active enterprises for education and activism. The precinct is the smallest political unit in the nation and the most important. American government is designed to flow from the individual up to the precinct and beyond.  We need to actively encourage participation in these neighborhood areas so we can help citizens restore good government to our cities, counties, state and nation,”.

http://teegardenforokgop.wordpress.com/

David Weston

Why I’m running…
I see two challenges which threaten our future. The first is complacency. We cannot afford to replace optimism with contentment. As has been said: “The arrogance of success is to think that what we did yesterday is good enough for tomorrow.” The second is discord. We can fight each other for control while our adversary marches on, or we can come together and work to achieve common goals. As Sallust explained: “Small communities grow great through harmony, great ones fall to pieces through discord.” To keep moving forward, we must grant each other the grace of a short-term memory when we have been offended. This is why I’m running for OKGOP Chair.

http://westonforchair.com/

Next up, a lady I admire very much, Debbie Lewis.  We will be discussing the new documentary Peddling Influence a William Lewis Films production written by Debbie Lewis.

The Lies, Deception and Dollars, New Film Reveals Dark Side of Media
Debbie Lewis      

Columbia, MO, March 1, 2013 – In a country where deceit has become the norm, shouldn’t we expect our mainstream media to expose the deception rather than cover it up?  Day in and day out our news and information coverage is spun in such a sinister way that we cannot trust what we see and hear.  And we know it…just take a look at the polls regarding media trustworthiness.  How did this nation go from the desire of a Free Press to a “bought and paid for” media?  Peddling Influence may have the answer.  Read More

More about Debbie Lewis;

Debbie Lewis is a concerned mother, independent researcher, freelance writer
and amateur photographer troubled with the obvious lack of representation in our government and the suppression of truth in the mainstream media.  Lewis does research for William Lewis Films productions, has written three feature length documentaries, Peddling Influence, Blood of Patriots and The Ron Paul Uprising and co-wrote Enemy of the State: Camp FEMA Part 2.  Her articles are featured in the international publication Namaste Magazine and the national publications Survivalist and The Sovereign and they appear at several locations on the web, including www.TakeBackWashington.com and www.SecuringLiberty.com.

On Friday, Lucas Catton former president of Narconon Arrowhead, author of ‘Have You Told All?’, and our good friend Colin Henderson will be catching us up on the remarkable happenings at Narconon Arrowhead Scientology’s flagship rehab facility in located here in Oklahoma.

Lucas Catton

Lucas Catton

Catton came out of the shadows in the wake of the 3 Narconon patient deaths in a 9 month span that have led to criminal investigations and civil lawsuits against Narconon Arrowhead.

‘It was Catton who explained to us that Scientology officials have spent considerable resources lobbying and schmoozing state officials, worried that they would take a hard look at Narconon Arrowhead’s certification.

“When I left in 2006, they were eagerly trying to get some type of amicable relationship with the Department of Mental Health,” he says.’  . . . “They were worried that they had to get their entire program certified by the state, or get the law changed, or they would not be allowed to operate at all,” .  . .The Village Voice, August 18, 2012 http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2012/08/scientology_lucas_catton_narconon.php

Gabriel Graves,32,  Hillary Holten, 21,  and Stacy Murphy, 20 years old all died at the Narconon Arrowhead facility. Read more Narconon Rehab Deaths

Lucas Catton also recently published a book on his experiences as a Scientologist and the figurehead and PR specialist at Narconon Arrowhead called ‘Have You Told All?’

CattonCover

NBC’s Rock Center did a feature on Narconon Arrowhead last August and will be airing  a very powerful piece on April 5th at 10pm EST/9PM CST featuring Lucas Catton and former staff member at Narconon, Eric Tenorio.  There will be a promo during the Rock Center’s show Friday March 29th show.

Axxiom For Liberty has been covering NN Arrowhead, the largest Narconon facility in the United States, since 2010 prior to the tragic deaths of at least 3 young people who were seeking help for their addictions that has set off a firestorm of media activity.

Much thanks to the sincere and tireless efforts of Colin Henderson who since his own dangerous experience with the facility in 2007, has been trying to warn others not to seek help there.

Here are just a few of the recent news items on Narconon Arrowhead;

-Legislation to curtail the dangerous practices at NN has been filed and has passed the Senate

Oklahoma Drug Rehab Bill Passes Senate: Scientology’s Narconon Days Numbered?

. . .history showed that the state had resisted Scientology’s plan to open the large rehab center in the late 1980s, and refused to grant it a license. But Scientology found a loophole in the law that allowed them to open based on a certification by a national nonprofit organization, bypassing state regulators.

In his bill, Ivester is trying to close that loophole.

And this is nothing new but something parents might want to watch out for, Narconon continues to do anti-drug presentations in public schools;

March 18, 2013

ASHER, Oklahoma –

Several parents say they are concerned over an anti-drug presentation at their school. The organization making the presentation and handing out literature is the controversial Narconon Arrowhead, which News 9 has been investigating here for several months.  Read more at NewsOn6

The curriculum provided by Narconon for grade and high school students is linked in the News 6 article and seems to diverge from scientific understanding of human biology.  This was a point of contention in California over Narconon’s anti-drug presentation to public school kids.

Schools urged to drop antidrug program / Scientology-linked teachings inaccurate, superintendent says

February 23, 2005

State Superintendent Jack O’Connell urged all California schools on Tuesday to drop the Narconon antidrug education program after a new state evaluation concluded that its curriculum offers inaccurate and unscientific information.

Here is a link to our one page information sheet called, “What Oklahomans Need To Know About Common Core State Standards“.  If you’re not in Oklahoma and wish to have something more generic, please use this handout from our friends at the Truth in American Education website.

Here is the paper that really helped to spread the word about CCSS, “Common Core State Standards, An Introduction To Marxism 101”  This should help you put the background together on where the Common Core came from – it’s political background and who’s behind the push.

For those of you interested also in the data collection aspect, our paper, “How Much Data Is Enough Data? What happens to privacy when bureaucracies exceed their scope?” might be of interest.  We also have another one page information sheet called, “What Oklahomans Need To Know About The P20 Council” that you can hand out to those seeking information.

“This is no longer just a ‘surveillance state.’  We are on the fast track to a police state.” -Miles Kinard, interview with the Spingola Files, Dec. 2012

We are very excited to introduce you to Miles Kinard, researcher and author of the magazine exposé, American Stasi: Fusion Centers and Domestic Spying.

What is a Fusion Center?

The principal role of the fusion center is to compile, analyze, and disseminate criminal/terrorist information and intelligence and other information (including, but not limited to, threat, public safety, law enforcement, public health, social services, and public works) to support efforts to anticipate, identify, prevent, and/or monitor criminal/terrorist activity.   http://www.scribd.com/doc/19251638/Fusion-Center-Guidelines-Law-Enforcement

I jumped on Mr. Kinard’s work on fusion centers last year when it was released and found his writing on the subject to be extremely lucid and his research, impeccable.  You can get it for a song and instant download at Amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/American-Stasi-Centers-Domesitc-ebook/dp/B006YZQFL8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327104356&sr=8-1

Miles Kinard’s work explores these secretive 9/11 domestic intelligence units that are considered key by the Department of Homeland Security in its quest to know everything about everybody all the time.

There is at least one of these relatively new intelligence centers located in every state (74 78 total) and precious little attention has been given to them by the mainstream media.

Secrecy, the waste of taxpayer dollars and especially the potential civil liberties violations were highlighted by Kinard’s work.  All of this and more was subsequently confirmed by a two-year bipartisan investigation by the U. S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations which released a 107 page report last October.

Tonight we will get a chance to talk to Miles about the state fusion centers as part of what he refers to as the “Surveillance Industrial Complex” in general and discuss the implications of these state-based (but federally controlled) spy centers that he identified in his exposé .

“The Common Core State Standards present a takeover of public education by a small group of individuals. This takeover will change the way that teachers teach, parents interact with their schools due to loss of local control, and present students with a narrow range of studies and increased standardized testing. Oklahomans must maintain local control over public education, therefore, we reject the Common Core State Standards.”  Read More from ROPE

What Facial Recognition Technology Means for Privacy and Civil Liberties 

The Militarization of U.S. Domestic Policing

 Abigail R. Hall and Christopher J. Coyne
Abstract
This paper develops the political economy of the militarization of domestic policing.
We analyze the mechanisms through which the “protective state”—where the government utilizes its monopoly on force to protect citizens’ rights—devolves into a “predatory state” which undermines the rights of the populace. We apply our theory to the U.S.,where we trace the(failed) historical attempts to establish constraints nto separate the military functions and policing functions of government.
In doing so we emphasize the role of crises in the form of perpetual wars—the “War on Drugs” and the “War on Terror”—in the accelerated militarization of domestic policing.

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!

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.
