NAACP Oklahoma City president – Garland Pruitt questions the motives of Oklahoma GOP governor for executing mentally ill Black inmate on Election day as Oklahoma GOP lawmakers have showed open racial hostility toward the Nations first black president who was being elected on the same day; and as blacks’ voting rights were being suppressed nationwide. Recorded on 11/09/2012 at NAACP training session at NAACP 80th State conference in Oklahoma City, OK.

Southern Strategy is alive & well in Oklahoma but in a bizarre form. 

  • Nationwide voter suppression aimed at black & other minority communities to prevent the nation’s first black president
    from winning re-election;
  • Reports of Oklahoma purging democrat voters from the voter rolls ;
  • White Oklahoma republican legislators pushed for affirmative action to be abolished in the state that is
    known for its hatred for a black US President;
  • Oklahoma Republicans had this affirmative action question to be placed on the ballot to be voted on in the
    presidential election knowing that a black president’s name would also be named on the same ballot;
  • Racist vitriol spewed by Oklahoma GOP politicians which fueled hate rhetoric to their constituents at conventions &
    political gatherings against a black president;

AND

Then these white republicans in Oklahoma with venomous hatred for this black man in the White House  decided to show the depth of it by executing another black man on

ELECTION DAY!

Yes, they did this!  While black folks in Oklahoma were scrambling to get to the voting polls on ELECTION DAY to vote for a black man to remain as president, the state of Oklahoma was executing another black on the same day. In my opinion this was a twisted message the white republicans of Oklahoma was sending to the black people in the state.

When they say racism is skin deep disease to the bone, they aint lying, cause these white republican politicians in Oklahoma have got it bad. Real bad.  How low can they go?

By the way, the blood RED state of Oklahoma at 6:05 pm on November 6, 2012 – ELECTION DAY, executed a mentally ill black man named Garry Allen. At that same time – 6:05 pm, blacks folks were still standing in long lines at voting polls in Carter County & other Oklahoma counties trying desperately to vote for another black man to be re-elected President of the United States & that man’s name is Barack Obama.  It was reported that the last words of inmate Garry Allen at the ELECTION DAY EXECUTION was his prediction of an Obama win to the presidency.

The following video was recorded at the Oklahoma Death Penalty Discussion/Session held at the NAACP Oklahoma state convention in Oklahoma City on 11/10/2012.

Oklahoma GOP Candidate Larry Boggs says GOP is in CONTROL.

Oklahoma GOP candidate Larry Boggs telling SE Oklahoma voters that GOP is in CONTROL. Either vote for him or GOP senate wont let Citizens have voice about their water.

Larry Boggs, republican candidate for Oklahoma state senate tells SE Oklahoma voters that the GOP is in control & that unless we vote for a GOP senator, then the GOP controlled state senate are not gonna approve our water rights bill nor hear our voices. SE Oklahoma near McAlester area is mostly democrat.

The frightening part of all this is that the subject matter Boggs was referring to was about SE Oklahomans water rights Bill. I dont like my water being held hostage like this.

Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). Bogg’s opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.

This political candidate forum sponsored by Mcalester News-capital, in Mcalester, Oklahoma. This event was held on Oct 16, 2012 at 6pm at the Kiamichi Center in Mcalester. Approximately 200 people attended.

(OK-GOP) Markwayne Mullin admits taking Fed Stimulus from Cherokee Nation. But suggest government oversight of fed stimulus $ is not required

Markwayne Mullin (ok-gop candidate) who criticized federal stimulus $, explains himself

After candidate forum, I interviewed Markwayne Mullin about the controversial stimulus money he received. His responses seem as though he was trying to back peddle from his prior public GOP talking points that bashed federal stimulus programs & President Obama admin support for those programs. In the interview he admits receiving the federal stimulus money thru the Cherokee Nation for his plumbing business. However, he tried to spin it as though it was the Cherokee nation who got the stimulus funds & that all he did was got paid for doing a job w/what just so happen to be “stimulus funds”. As his father (standing behind me) was trying to define the word “stimulus”, I saw Mullin making hand gestures to hush him up.

Also I believe Mullin presented a falsehood in this interview when he said that how the Cherokee nation choose to spend stimulus funds is totally up to them. The problem w/this statement he gave me is that it strongly suggest that government oversight on how those federal tax payer funds are disbursed by the Cherokee nation is not required. If what he said is actually true, then it would be appropriate for a federal investigation to be called to look into this matter. This also makes me wonder if this kind of GOP mindset could be the reason for waste & fraud. In other words he wants the government grants, but without stipulations or rules or supervision. Its my understanding that it would be illegal for a qualified entity to disburse federal monies (such as stimulus) to another party w/out documentation to show that the other party prior to receiving disbursement (payout) has knowledge that funds received is in fact government funds. Otherwise, there would be no accountability of tax payer funded programs. Furthermore, the only way I’m aware of that any private person or private business can receive federal grants is not directly from the federal government, but instead its thru another organization that received the federal funds for purpose of disbursing it to qualified persons/businesses. Therefore, Mullin responses revealed to me that either he actually has no grasp of how federal grant programs work because the only way he could had received those specific funds was to apply for it thru the Cherokee nation. Or it could be that Mullin was simply lying & “yanking my chain”.

Also, Mullin’s view was that federal stimulus money was the same as a tax refund check (like regular taxpaying folks get in the mail from IRS). Mullin maintained that he never filled out any paperwork nor sought out to get the stimulus funds. However, in order for tax payer to get tax refund from IRS, the taxpayer must apply for that refund. Therefore, Mullin apparently applied for the stimulus if his view is truthful that stimulus & tax refund are the same.

On the matter of veterans as benefactors of federal funded programs, he made some exception (somewhat) – such as: (1) When I asked if he would be opposed to me as a veteran in getting federal grant on the farm bill so that I can start organic chicken farm, he avoided answering. This 1st example is about grants that is considered as stimulus funded.   I figured he avoid answering this question because the GOP failed to pass the farm bill which had expired.   But (2) When I asked if he would be opposed to me as a disabled veteran in obtaining federal grant to get modification of bathroom to accommodate disability (veteran HISA grant) , he seemed to be more approving of it when he responded: “if that program is available to you” .. “because you served our country”. This 2nd example is not considered as fed stimulus funds, according to what I was told by the VA.

Marywayne Mullin is the republican nominee running for election for US Congress (2nd district of Oklahoma). His opponent is Robert Wallace – democrat. The seat they both seek was held by democrat Dan Boren who is retiring & have has held that seat since 2005. US Congressional district 2 of Oklahoma is the only democrat district in the entire state. Therefore, its imperative that the democrats hold on to that district, whereas the republicans are trying to turn the entire state Red. The election will be November 6, 2012.

This interview was videoed on October 9, 2012 at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma after a candidates forum. That event was sponsored by the Tahlequah chamber of commerce. Location of that event: 100 Water Avenue, Tahlequah, OK.

Mississippi law student opposes Fed deregulation, supports re-election of Obama

Mississippi law student voice his opinion of Obama & Romney.  Why he supports Obama & Opposes Romney.

Mississippi law student voice his opinion of Obama & Romney. Why he supports Obama & Opposes Romney.

Leif Skognick, Law student at  Mississippi College School of Law who is an Obama supporter, said that if republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney takes the White House, he would take the country in the wrong direction.  He added that under Romney we would see similar failed policies that were made under GW Bush, HW Bush & Reagan.  He said that under of those republican presidents there were triple down economic polices that created capital wealth which destroyed US middle class.

Skognick responded that the country is on a better path now than it was 4 yrs. ago, as 4 yrs. ago there was massive job loss w/no end in sight.  He said that the only solution the republican party came up with was “less regulation”; and that less regulation was what got this country in trouble. He expressed there needs to be certain protective regulation in the financial market.  Under Bush, he added, in the financial market there was rampant speculations in securities that quickly sank the economy.  He summarized that without protective regulation, this might happen again & matters would get worse.

He mentioned that President Obama established a consumer financial protection bureau & that the GOP blocked Obama’s appointed nominee (Elizabeth Warren) to head it.  He felt that basically the GOP has been a party of obstructionists, and that because of it this country would not be able to go to where it needs to go.

Obama funding Historically Black Colleges may gain him college votes. JSU – Mississippi

Denise Clark -  Doctoral candidate at Jackson State University (JSU) said she will vote for Obama because of his support for struggling college students.  Clark made specific reference to President Obama’s funding of HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities), as well as his helping to keep student loan interests rates low.

At the time of this interview, I did not know what HBCU meant.  I was informed by Clark & her friend Micah Dennie (also a JSU student) that HBCU was abbreviation for Historically Black Colleges & Universities.
