J. C. Says It's Not True

Just received word about J.C. Please read JC's statement. Reported here first.


June 14, 2008

It has come to my attention that an Associated Press article on black conservatives indicates many are considering voting for Barack Obama for president in November. The writer refers to me and states, "(Watts) said he's thinking of voting for Obama." That is the writer's interpretation of my statement.

If recent polls are accurate, a large percentage of Evangelicals and minority conservatives are leaning to or have committed to Senator Obama. I am not one of them. Like many Republicans across the nation, I consider myself a "free agent" this year, which is what I told the AP. Presidential candidates are going to have to work to earn my vote, and not assume it. I'm urging my friends and associates to follow their hearts in November. I'm hopeful, as the course of the campaign plays out, that Senator McCain will work as hard to merit our votes as he is for other voters, that he would give them reason to vote for him in November.

The article further lists some of my concerns with the Republican Party over its lack of outreach to the black and Evangelical communities. Those concerns are true, and anyone who has spoken to me or read my writings in recent months and years should not be surprised by that position.

But I regret to conclude that the GOP leadership -- the party I embraced and for whom I have worked diligently across the nation -- has come to place evangelicals and Republicans who are concerned about the black community, in the same boat. It seems the party leadership is taking this loyal group of voters for granted and no longer feels the need to work for our votes.

J.C. Watts Endorsing Obama? I don't Think so!

J.C. has complained for a long time about the way the Republican Party treat Blacks. After reading all the information that I can find on the internet, I have yet to read one article that states, “J.C. Watts endorses Obama”. Let’s wait until we hear from J.C. before we start condemning him. McCain should have put J.C. on his steering committee a long time ago. McCain seems to be trying to piss off everyone, (excuse my language) Christians and now Blacks.

Black conservatives conflicted on Obama campaign
Related Information
J.C. Watts Republican congressman who once was part of the GOP House leadership, said he's thinking of voting for Obama. Watts said he's still a Republican, but he criticizes his party for neglecting the black community. Black Republicans, he said, have to concede that while they might not agree with Democrats on issues, at least that party reaches out to them.
"And Obama highlights that even more," Watts said, adding that he expects Obama to take on issues such as poverty and urban policy. "Republicans often seem indifferent to those things."

Ron Paul Not The Answer

I agree that Ron Paul sounds good. Hopefully all conservatives agree that the Republican Party needs to veer back and stay true to it's traditions and remain a limited government party.
It is the messenger not message that is the problem with Ron Paul. How can you support someone for President, that tells your followers to lie! Sorry Ron Paul supporters, but Ron Paul sounds like a nut, every time I watched him on TV. If you get someone with a winning personality and with the same talking points you might have a legit Presidential candidate. If the Paulies were not so militant, Ron Paul might have resonated. Bob

Candidate Paul Is Gone, But Not Really
By Marie Horrigan, CQ Staff

Texas Rep. Ron Paul has officially called off his quest for the Republican presidential nomination, more than two months after John McCain secured enough delegates to clinch the nomination. But with frequent events scheduled in the next two months, Paul apparently has no intention of giving up his libertarian fight.
“What I see happening now is hardly the end of anything. I think this is the beginning of something really, really big that’s going on in this country,” Paul told supporters Thursday night when he announced his withdrawal.
Benton said that while the event would be an opportunity to remind Republicans that there is a large contingent of people interested in moving the party back “to its roots.”
“The Republican Party needs to veer back and stay true to its traditions and remain a limited government party and maybe even become a limited government party once again,” he said.
Meanwhile, Paul supporters are also planning on holding an alternate state convention for Nevada Republicans. The state party recessed its April 26 convention without certifying delegates for Paul and McCain after a procedural move by Paul supporters and Republican activists stalled progress on selecting delegates.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won the Nevada caucus with 53 percent of the vote; McCain and Paul tied with 13 percent each.
The delegates to the state convention will reconvene at a party-sanctioned event in Reno on July 26 to complete the process, but Paul supporters plan to meet nearly a month earlier — June 28 — at the Reno Grand Sierra to try to do so. The state party has said the Republican National Committee will not recognize any selections made at the June 28 meeting.

Texas State Convention

Hard to believe that 1% of the Southern Baptist Pastors will vote for Obama. 15% are still undecided according to the Baptist Messenger. I wonder if Shawnee Southern Baptist Church (Henry's Church)is included in the 1%.
The lessor of two evils is better than the evil. Remember the President will get several Supreme Court appointments, that will determine our future for years. Bob

Below article are comments from the Texas State Convention.

Texas State Convention
We’re going to support McCain,” he said with a distinct lack of enthusiasm. “He may not have been all of our first choice, but he is our choice.”
Evangelicals have been indispensable to Republican presidential candidates since Ronald Reagan in 1980 and were key to George W. Bush’s White House wins.
Some analysts say Mr. McCain has made a political calculation to give up some support on the religious right to broaden his appeal to more centrist voters. Still, if Christian conservatives don’t actively work for Mr. McCain in their churches and neighborhoods, he could have trouble winning in the fall.
“Obviously, the base of the party is not really excited about John McCain,” said Tim Lambert of Lubbock, who heads the state’s largest home-school organization. “I think he’s not reaching out to the base, not reaching out to the evangelicals. Bob Dole made that mistake in 1996.”
This week’s state GOP convention underscored how much work Mr. McCain needs to do if he hopes to rally Christian conservatives. Many delegates explained their support for Mr. McCain in terms of their opposition to Barack Obama.
This week, some Southern Baptists have questioned the McCain campaign’s absence at the group’s annual meeting. Four years ago, the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign hosted a reception at the event.
Perhaps the nation’s most influential Christian right personality, James Dobson, has served notice he won’t vote for Mr. McCain.

Jim Roth Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund

Record number of out gays seeking office
2 incumbents in tight races; Baldwin, Frank, Polis favored to win
By CHRIS JOHNSON, Washington Blade Oct 8, 9:54 AM

The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund is touting an unprecedented number of endorsements this year, but many of those candidates are facing significant challenges in their bids for public office.

As of Tuesday, the Victory Fund had backed 100 candidates in this year’s election — more than the 88 candidates it endorsed in 2006 or the 65 it endorsed in 2004.

Denis Dison, a Victory Fund spokesperson, said he expected a few more endorsements in the weeks remaining before Election Day.

He said one reason more openly gay candidates are running is because of victories of other gay people in previous elections.

“When you see that people are able to run openly, then I think it encourages other people who wanted to step into politics … to help their communities,” Dison said.

One candidate endorsed by the Victory Fund this year is Jim Roth, an Oklahoma Democratic candidate who is seeking to be retained as one of three members on the state’s Corporation Commission, which regulates Oklahoma’s energy and utility companies.

A former county Commissioner, Roth was appointed to his position on the Corporation Commission on June 1, 2007, by Oklahoma’s Democratic Gov. Brad Henry. While Roth won elections as county commissioner, this election marks the first time he has sought voter approval for statewide office. If he succeeds, he would be the first openly gay candidate to win statewide office in Oklahoma.

His Republican opponent in the race is Dana Murphy, a geologist and attorney.

Roth said he wanted to pursue an additional term in office because “it’s a chance to serve 100 percent of our state and to push Oklahoma in a more progressive energy direction.”

He said Oklahoma has largely untapped wind energy potential because his predecessors “have thought very narrowly about energy issues in our state.”

While Oklahoma provides about 4 percent of domestic oil production in the United States and 10 percent of its natural gas production, the state could produce 90 percent of the country’s wind energy, Roth said.

Stephen Rhymer, spokesperson for the Murphy campaign, said Roth’s sexual orientation is not an issue and Murphy’s supporters are backing her because she’s the most qualified candidate for the job.

Rhymer said Murphy has “20 years experience in the oil and gas industry” as a geologist in the oil patch, attorney in the oil and gas industry and an expert witness for the Corporation Commission.

Recent polls have Roth trailing Murphy. A poll published Sept. 30 by SurveyUSA found that 50 percent of Oklahoma voters favor Murphy while 41 percent support Roth.
Roth said the poll “is not accurate” because SurveyUSA used automated calls that didn’t determine whether responders were registered to vote or whether responders were likely to vote. He noted his campaign commissioned its own poll and found that one-third of Oklahoma residents support him, another third favor Murphy and the remaining third are undecided.

Roth said the Victory Fund has been helpful to his campaign and offered “incredible talent and altruistic people that provide tremendous moral support.”
“I think they’ve done a good job of making sure that good people are being elected because they’re good — not just because they’re gay,” he said.

Angier is allegedly photographing every Democrat candidate filing for office for the benefit of the Republican Party. The article goes on and talks about Angiers working for Randy Terrill.
What this Democrat does not know is that Angiers, is filming Republicans as well. The Republican Party wants noting to do with Angiers.

After Three Letters To The Editor Collins Never Answers Why he Skipped The Grocery Tax Vote

I find it interesting that when you ask Rep Collins to be truthful, he calls it hatred. Tell me, are we expecting to much from Wallace Collins to be honest? Based on his response apparently so. Even after Collins' two letters to the editor and one letter from one of his supports they still never answered the question. Wallace belives he can dodge the question by pointing his finger at other politicans.

Editor, The Transcript: (Sunday's Paper)
It never ceases to amaze me at the amount of hatred that emanates from my political opponents. Now, in a letter published in The Transcript on May 25, Joseph Fairbanks is attacking me for a "phantom bill" vote that never happened.
It appears that he is being fed information by someone that is mistaken or confused.
As I have stated before, HB 3358 did not have any language pertaining to elimination of grocery sales tax. What he fails to note is that I did author two bills, two years in a row, that would have eliminated sales tax on groceries and over the counter medicine.
Those bills, HB 1838 and HB 1839, were never allowed to be heard, or voted on, by the Republican House Leadership. Furthermore, I did vote for an amendment by Rep. Morrissette that would have repealed the grocery sales tax. Unfortunately, that amendment was killed, in near straight party voting, by Mr. Fairbanks' party. Amazingly, the bill we attempted to amend, HB3103 by Rep. Gary Banz, R-MWC, wanted to exempt taxes on the sale of gold bars, bouillon, platinum, and rare coins. They chose gold over groceries.
I challenge Mr. Fairbanks to show us a single bill, introduced by a Republican this session, that would have removed the sales tax from groceries or medicine. They are the majority party in the House, and had ample opportunity to introduce and pass such a bill, if they so desired!
In addition to those votes, I signed on as a co author with Rep. Kris Steele, R-Shawnee, on HB2833. The bill would have exempted from sales tax, food and produce sold at the Farmer's Markets. Unfortunately, that part of the bill was taken out by the Senate. A check of my voting record shows that I have voted 98.4 percent of the time, covering thousands of votes. I'll put my record against anyone else at the Capitol. If the young Mr. Fairbanks is so concerned about attendance and voting records, I wonder why he isn't complaining about the disgraced former Speaker, who as one news story reported, had missed about 50 percent of the votes. Additionally, since the removal of sales tax from groceries is so important to Bobby Cleveland, Dave Spaulding, and Joseph Fairbanks, I wonder how many times they contacted the Speaker of the House to recommend my bills be heard?

Open Letter to Collins via email:
I sincerely hoped you would stop being dishonest with Norman residents about
your record. As evident in your letter this morning, you continue this
dishonesty. We can actually resolve this issue quite quickly. So, please,
answer this specifically: In your April 13th letter, you stated that you
did not "walk any votes" that pertained to eliminating the grocery sales
tax, as Bobby Cleveland had charged. Do you maintain that position given
the following information pasted below

HOUSE BILL 3358 Franchise tax; sales tax holiday; individual income tax
Terrill Emergency


Auffet *Collins* Inman Pittman

BigHorse Ellis Lindley Proctor
Brannon Glenn McMullen Renegar
Brown Hamilton Morrissette

I'm sure you recall that this was a vote on HB 3358 to suspend rules in
order to attach an amendment that would eliminate the grocery sales tax. You
were present for the votes on HB 3358 that immediately preceded and followed
this particular vote. If you didn't "walk" this vote, then please inform me
and others why you are registered as excused.

Thank you,
Joe Fairbanks

Is Candidate Rice Connected To Wallace Collins, They Both Have Problems Telling The Truth

Rice Misleading Oklahoma Voters on Immigration Record
Immigration Bill Author says Rice not Instrumental in Passage

Oklahoma City (June 9, 2008) – Contrary to his latest claims, State Senator Andrew Rice was not key in the passage of Oklahoma’s immigration reform law, according to the bill’s author and Oklahoma Victory 2008.

In a radio ad titled “Faith,” Rice claims “I helped pass the toughest immigration reform law in the country.”

According to State Rep. Randy Terrill (R-Moore), author of HB 1804, “Senator Rice was not actively involved in the negotiations of HB 1804 nor was he instrumental in the bill’s passage. Furthermore, Senator Rice voted to gut a bill establishing English as the state’s official language, which should give Oklahomans an idea where he really stands on meaningful immigration reform.”

On May 7, 2008, Senator Rice and his Senate Democrat colleagues passed substitute language to Terrill’s English-only bill, thereby sending it back to a conference committee and essentially killing the bill. (

“Rice indeed voted for the final passage of HB 1804, but it’s disingenuous for him to take credit for helping pass the toughest immigration reform law in the country,” said Oklahoma Victory Director Matt Pinnell.

“Senator Rice talks a big game about bipartisanship, but when it comes to the tough issues that Oklahomans feel strongly about, like making English our state's official language, Rice tows the party line.” (END)
