NRCC Slams Democrats

NRCC Slams Dems for Adjourning Without Addressing Fuel Costs
Thursday July 17, 2008

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Cole is asking any American who'll listen to sign a petition demanding Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi keep Congress in session until a bill can be passed that will address the high costs of oil and fuel.

"When Americans are canceling vacations because gasoline is over $4.00 per gallon, Democrats plan to adjourn work for a month-long vacation the first of August WITHOUT holding a vote to drill for American oil," Cole writes. "This is inexcusable. I know you’ll agree with me that there should be no recess without voting on legislation that can help lower gas prices."

Cole's right. It's time for this nation's leaders to do something to address the fuel crisis that's hitting Americans so hard. It's one thing to consider how the crisis hurts American vacations; it's quite another to consider how the crisis hurts American livelihoods.

Just this week, auto-giant General Motors announced it was cutting its work-force because it's feeling the economic pinch, and no doubt transportation costs are one reason they're hurting so badly. When Americans are losing jobs because Congress won't do its job, something's wrong. I realize the US government typically creates more problems than it solves, but this is one time it can help its citizens in a profound way.

Cole goes on to cite this Gallup Poll, which shows Congress' approval rating hitting a record low of just 14 percent. Part of the problem is that Americans feel legislators ignore their concerns. If the Democrats adjourn without hashing out legislation that will ease the crisis -- even if it simply boils down to letting states decide for themselves what is in their best interests -- they can expect those approval ratings to dip even lower.

While Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning to adjourn Congress in two weeks, a group of House Republicans are planning a trip to Alaska this weekend to learn what readers already know: Alaskans want the right to drill for oil in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge.

If you feel like Congress isn't doing enough to address fuel costs and should save their vacation until after they do their job, sign Cole's petition. Maybe it will be your voice that changes Pelosi's mind.

How Right Is the New Yorker Cover

Aides to Barack Obama are blasting a New Yorker magazine cover that depicts “President Obama” in the Oval Office, wearing a Muslim-style outfit and doing a fist-bump with his wife, Michelle, who is dressed in camouflage with an automatic rifle slung over her back.

A picture of Usama bin Laden hangs above the mantel of the fireplace, which has an American flag burning in it.

The July 21 cover, titled “The Politics of Fear,” is intended to be a parody, an attempt to show how “scare tactics and misinformation” are being used to try to derail Barack Obama’s campaign, says cover artist Barry Blitt.

“I think the idea that the Obamas are branded as unpatriotic [let alone as terrorists] in certain sectors is preposterous,” Blitt wrote in an e-mail to the Huffington Post. “It seemed to me that depicting the concept would show it as the fear-mongering ridiculousness that it is.”

The Obama campaign has had to fight an intensive e-mail spam campaign that claims Obama is secretly a Muslim, and his wife is a black radical. Campaign spokesman Bill Burton called the New Yorker cover over the top.

“The New Yorker may think, as one of their staff explained to us, that their cover is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Senator Obama’s right-wing critics have tried to create,” Burton said.

“But most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive. And we agree.”

Obama did not reply to a question about the cover when he answered reporters’ questions on Sunday in San Diego. John McCain’s campaign also slammed the cover as “tasteless and offensive.”

The New Yorker editors also issued a statement Monday saying the cover “combines a number of fantastical images about the Obamas and shows them for the obvious distortions they are.”

“The burning flag, the nationalist-radical and Islamic outfits, the fist-bump, the portrait on the wall? All of them echo one attack or another. Satire is part of what we do, and it is meant to bring things out into the open, to hold up a mirror to prejudice, the hateful, and the absurd. And that’s the spirit of this cover,” reads the statement.

Loveless and Istook Pay Hefty Fines

Istook pays nearly $14,000 in fines to FEC

Associated Press - July 16, 2008 1:25 AM ET

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Former Oklahoma Congressman Ernest Istook has settled some fines stemming from an audit of his 2004 re-election campaign.

Istook says he paid the Federal Election Commission nearly $14,000 -- 12,000 out of remaining campaign funds and $1,800 in personal money. His ex-campaign manager, Kyle Loveless, paid an $800 fine.

Istook said the fines were part of an agreement reached by the campaign and FEC staff members. The FEC report shows that $2,000 is owed to the Washington law firm hired by Istook's campaign to handle the matter.

He and Loveless already had to reimburse the campaign $7,000 for expenses that were deemed to be personal. Among other errors were taking prohibited corporate donations and failure to disclose more than $26,000 in last-minute gifts.

Istook told The Oklahoman's Washington bureau that he accepts responsibility for the bookkeeping and reporting errors his campaign staff made.

Steve Fair Wins Dinner For Two

Steve Fair guessed the correct name and age. He guessed Bobby Cleveland 14 yrs old. Congratulations to Steve from Duncan. He won a steak dinner for two to any major restaurant in Noble America. Kendell's Restaurant.

Wallace Collins

Collins is one of the only legislators that did not get a single bill passed. This is a birthday card that Wallace sends to his constituents. Notice the spelling of Wallace.I also question the legality of Wallace using the State Seal on personal mail. I believe we have a state law concerning the proper use of the State Seal.

Use of the Seal

It is a misdemeanor for any person to use the "Great Seal of the State of Oklahoma" or facsimile thereof, on any identification document, identification card, or identification certificate which is not issued by an entity of this state or political subdivision thereof, or by the United States. Provided, nothing in the paragraph shall be construed to prohibit the use of the "Great Seal of the State of Oklahoma" for authorized advertising, including but not limited to, business cards, calling cards and stationery.

Norman The Best Place To Live

Money magazine has Norman ranked in the top 10 as one of the best places to live in America. What is news about that? Everyone in Norman has always known that Norman is the best. Great restaurants, excellent places to shop, fantastic health clubs, the number one University, heck I could go on and on about Norman. One very important part of the Money Magazine article was crime. Norman is very fortunate to have Phil Cotton as our Chief of Police Chief. We have a very professional police force that is highly skilled in fighting crime. Special thanks goes out to Norman's Police Department.It is nice that the rest of the country now knows what we have known all along. Congratulations to all of our City officials. Congratulations to the University of Oklahoma. Congratulations Norman!

Mass.Leislature/"GAY Marriage Across The Country

MassResistance Update

Pro-family activism

"In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
- George Orwell Home Page

1. Mass. Legislature poised to export our "gay marriage" across the country by repealing "1913 Law". National gay groups pouring in money to lobby. Pressure needed NOW to stop Senate vote Tuesday - (see our new fax feature!)

The national homosexual movement is funding a huge lobbying effort over the next few days to persuade the Massachusetts Legislature to repeal the "1913 Law" which would allow out-of-state "gay" couples to legally "marry" in Massachusetts -- and then cause havoc in their home states. Currently, out-of-state couples can not marry in Massachusetts if that marriage would be illegal in their home state. (See our report with the language of the bill.)

The Massachusetts Senate is scheduled to vote on it on TOMORROW -Tuesday. If it passes the Senate, the House will vote on it later in the week.

Exporting "gay marriage" to cause legal challenges and havoc in other states from Massachusetts has long been a goal of the homosexual movement. But this law has stood in the way. They have tried to repeal it in the past, but with pressure from citizens and MassResistance, it never got out of committee. Now, with only days left in the 2008 legislative session, they suddenly pulled it out of committee and they're trying to push it through into law. The Governor has said he'd sign it.

Money flowing in to lobby legialsture

The national homosexual group "Human Rights Campaign" is funding a quick push to inundate the State House. They are giving MassEquality a $25,000 matching grant. (And that's just what we know about.)

This email was sent by the homosexual lobby group MassEquality to its supporters:

Dear xxxxx,

It's time to put an end to a final strand of marriage discrimination in our Commonwealth: the discriminatory 1913 law that bars out-of-state same-sex couples from marrying here.

The Massachusetts Legislature is planning to take up legislation repealing this outdated law as early as next week. This is the result of intensive lobbying work we've done -- in partnership with the lead Senate champion of the bill, Dianne Wilkerson -- as well as the recent events in California.

Please take action to make sure this bill passes by contacting your legislators today to ask them to repeal the 1913 law.

The recent decision in favor of marriage equality in California, which has no similar law barring out-of-state couples, makes this all the more urgent. We should be encouraging committed couples to come to our state -- the first in the nation to have marriage equality -- to marry, not turning them away at the border.

Click here to send your legislators an email asking them to repeal the 1913 law.

We've brought on board two of the best lobbyists in the State House to help us finish the job on the 1913 law repeal. We need your help to pay for their work.

In fact, we have a special deal for you: for everyone who contributes at least $191.30 to this effort, we will send a note to former Governor Mitt Romney letting him know that a contribution of that amount was made to MassEquality in Mitt's honor to support repeal of the 1913 law (don't worry: we will not share your name with him). Romney turned to that law, which was used to limit the number of interracial marriages performed in Massachusetts, to reject out-of-state gay and lesbian couples.

Thanks, as always, for your support.


Marc Solomon
Executive Director

P.S. GIVE NOW and your gift will be doubled -- matched dollar-for-dollar by a $25,000 grant provided by the Human Rights Campaign.

You can and MUST stop this.

Do not let the homosexual movement do this.

Even if you don't live in Massachusetts, you can still do something. You can call and email our 40 state Senators and read them the riot act. They need to hear from you.

And now you can send a fax to them, too! We've just set up a new system to send faxes to these Senators! You can compose your own message. It gives them a piece of paper to hold in their hands and read. (However, the faxing service is only available to people with a Massachusetts address.)

But everyone - please - take a minute or two to do something. They claim they've brought the "best lobbyists in the State House" to help them "finish the job." Don't let them beat you.
