FOX 25 revelations of official misconduct by Jim Roth “shocking," says GOP Chairman. Gary Jones

(OKLAHOMA CITY) OKGOP Chairman Gary Jones today released the following statement following FOX 25 revelations of official misconduct by Jim Roth:

"The official actions of Jim Roth, as depicted in Thursday night's report by Channel 25, are shocking. Among a litany of wrongdoing, it appears Corporation Commissioner Jim Roth used his position to intimidate a landowner into selling his land, going so far as threatening the use of eminent domain in order to benefit an individual that has bankrolled his (Roth's) campaign.

"The disturbing implications of Roth's DUI arrest have largely been ignored by the press; there can be no more ignoring the fact that there is something deeply disturbing about the agenda of those that control Roth and the appearance of dishonesty surrounding him.

"Regardless of the outcome of Tuesday's election between Jim Roth and Dana Murphy, an inquiry with no ties to 'Team Roth' should be immediately launched to determine whether or not Roth has used his office to enrich supporters. Nothing less than the credibility of the State of Oklahoma and its officials is at stake." (END)

Sex In The City

I bet the word Sex caught your attention. This is a copy of letter that recently was sent by Caruso. Nice to know we have someone that cares enough to send out a letter with all the facts.

Dear Friend,

Do you get sick to your stomach when you see candidates or their families trashed by the media? Just last week, the media went after "Joe the Plumber." That's just wrong; Joe's personal life doesn't affect us.

BUT, what happens when a candidate's personal life and their beliefs increase our taxes, or hurt our families? Then it is no longer personal, it's public.

Unfortunately the media ignores real issues when it isn't "politically correct."

One of the major cases in point is Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner Jim Roth.

Not everyone is aware that Commissioner Roth is openly homosexual. He's never hidden that fact and in certain circles celebrates it. For a short time he included a picture of himself and his male partner on his official web site.

But what if he used his political power to advance his personal agenda? Let's look at the public record . . .

When Roth was an Oklahoma County Commissioner, he pushed to have books that are aimed at promoting the homosexual agenda to children on the Oklahoma library shelves.

Supporters of parental rights wanted the gay themed books put on the adult shelves so parents didn't have to worry about their children stumbling upon them. Roth voted to put books like Heather has Two Mommies on shelves where young children could find them.

The major media in Oklahoma doesn't talk about Roth's endorsements by major homosexual organizations such as The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund (www.victoryfund.org).

Why is the media ignoring the fact that out-of-state groups that promote the radical homosexual agenda are donating thousands of dollars in Jim Roth's campaign? What are these groups trying to do?

What would homosexual activists have to gain with Roth on the Corporation Commission? Do they hope that he will use his influence to blackmail companies to support homosexual benefits?

Do they know that Roth has used his political power to help major contributors in the past? For instance while Roth was an Oklahoma County Commissioner he used $705,000 of the taxpayers money to build a road to benefit a wealthy contributor.

According to analysis done by investigative journalist Mike McCarville (http://wwwtmrcom.blogspot.com/2008/10/roth-sponsored-roadway-bridge-to.html) on October 6, 2008 the road project helped boost the value of the contributor's property from $60,100 to $449,362 a personal gain of $389,262, financed by your tax dollars.

You have a right to know that this is happening, but the media continues to pretend that "it's private" and you have no business knowing about it.
Do you agree? Do you believe that the media is covering this up because of political correctness? Then go to www.privatelivespublicpolicy.org and sign up for our email newsletter.

I don't believe in spreading rumors or gossip. But I do believe that you have a right to know when a public official's private life starts affecting your family.

When private beliefs infringe on your rights you need to know. That's why I hope you will take this opportunity to go to www.privatelivespuclicpolicy.org today.

Thad Balkman Picks

Because I often get asked for advice on candidates and state questions,
I put together this email outlining my choices for this year’s election.
I have taken the liberty to send this to you. If my political ideology
offends you, I apologize in advance, but I’m taking the gamble of
sending this to you because I think the ramifications for some of the
races this year are so wide spread that I cannot remain silent.


Below I’ve listed who I choosing and why. If you still have questions
or want more info, feel free to call or email me and I’ll do my best to
help you. In the past, I have been asked if these e-mails can be
forwarded? By all means please do, as I think most Oklahoman’s don’t
know much about many of these races. Remember that voting starts TODAY
- absentee in person at the County Election Board. And if you can’t get
there today or tomorrow, then don’t forget to vote Tuesday. Polls are
open from 7 am to 7 pm but as this is a Presidential year, the lines are
sure to be long, so if you want to avoid the crowd try going about 10 in
the morning or 2 in the afternoon. Your polling location is listed on
your voter ID card, which is a good idea to bring with you when you
vote.


OKLAHOMA & LOCAL ELECTIONS


House District 45:

Aaron Stiles (R) – this one is a no brainer as I believe the incumbent
is the most ineffective legislator in the Oklahoma Legislature. In his
two years in the House, Collins has not authored a single bill enacted
into law. In sharp contrast to Collins’ ultra-liberal ideology and his
record of unethical conduct (Collins has been sued successfully twice
for libeling his political opponents and used campaign money to pay his
legal bills), Aaron Stiles shares our traditional family values. Aaron
served in the Air Force for 8 years, before returning to Norman to
obtain his law degree and start his business. Aaron is a fiscal
conservative who vigorously opposed the Norman library project that
voters turned down earlier this year in part because of its tremendous
costs. Aaron has been a quick study on the issues important to the
district and will bring much needed leadership to the Capitol.



House District 46:

Scott Martin (R) – Scott has risen quickly to the House leadership table
in his first term representing Noble and South and West Norman. His
background in city government, particularly transportation issues makes
him a very effective advocate for Norman. Scott is a family man and is
not afraid to stand up for moral issues even when he faces heat from the
local liberal establishment in Norman.



Senate District 15:

Jonathan Nichols (R) – for the past eight years, Jonathan has been a
stalwart conservative in the Oklahoma State Senate. A former Assistant
DA in Cleveland County, he has continually battled against the liberals’
attempts to soften criminal penalties and defund public safety. His
record on pro-life issues and fiscal discipline in state spending is
impeccable. Jonathan deserves a third and final term.



Cleveland County Sheriff:

Joe Lester (R) – Joe is the former Chief of Police for the OU Police
Department and decided to cut short his retirement to run after former
Sheriff Beggs retired. Joe has the experience and will bring innovative
and fiscally responsible ideas required to lead our law enforcement
efforts in Cleveland County.



Corporation Commission:

Jeff Cloud (R) – I didn’t originally support Jeff six years ago when he
first ran for Corporation Commissioner (I backed Dana Murphy – see
below), but Jeff has earned my respect and my vote for reelection to the
Commission. His opponent, a former legislator that I served with in the
House, has recently shown his utter complete ignorance about this office
and the duties of the Corporation Commission with his campaign ads that
claim he’s the only candidate who supports 2nd Amendment (gun) rights.
The Corporation Commission regulates utilities and natural gas and oil
producers in the state – and Jeff has shown that he is a fair and
conscientious member of the Commission who is not just a puppet for the
big corporations he regulates nor is he an overzealous consumer
advocate.



Dana Murphy (R) – Of all statewide elections this one is the MOST
important! This special election is to fill out the unexpired term left
vacant when Denise Bode resigned a year and a half ago. Governor Henry
appointed Jim Roth(D) to temporarily fill the term and now he and Dana
Murphy are competing to fill the remainder of this term. As I stated
earlier, I supported Dana Murphy six years ago when she first ran for
the Corporation Commission. She lost in the Republican Run-off to Jeff
Cloud. I supported Dana back then for the same reasons I support her
now. Experience and trust. Dana’s professional background makes her
probably the best qualified candidate for the Corporation Commission
that we’ve ever had on the ballot. She was an administrative law judge
for the commission, she’s a geologist, and she is a licensed attorney
who regularly represents clients before the commission. If you have
ever heard her speak she can recite verbatim the duties as outlined in
the state constitution of the Corporation Commissioners. Back in 2002,
I got to know her pretty well as we campaigned door to door together in
my former east Norman district. Since then I have worked with her on a
variety of party activities – Dana was Vice Chairwoman of the Oklahoma
Republican Party – and I can say without out a doubt that she is as
honest as can be. If elected she will not be bought off by the big
corporate interests that are supposed to be regulated by the Corporation
Commission. Maybe that is why those guys are spending so much money to
back her opponent.



A few words on her opponent. Some of you may have been reading the
Oklahoman closely and who may know that Jim Roth is an out of the closet
homosexual. However, most Oklahomans are unaware of his un-natural
sexual

perversion. I don’t believe he makes any mention of his homosexuality on
his web-site. In brief, the largest PAC in the nation supporting
homosexual candidates considers this one the most important races in the
nation (see www.victoryfund.org). In addition, Jim Roth’s Corporation
Commission Campaign was a sponsor of the 2008 Gay Pride Parade held
earlier this year in Oklahoma City (see www.okcpride.org). Then of
course, when Roth was a County Commissioner in Oklahoma County, he
supported having pro-homosexual books accessible to small children in
the Oklahoma County libraries. Have you ever wondered why the homosexual
community from all over America would contribute tens, perhaps hundreds
of thousands of dollars to Jim Roth’s corporation commission race in
OKLAHOMA?



Even if you don’t think his homosexuality is an issue, I believe Roth is
a puppet on a string for people that I believe want to control and use
the regulatory power of government for their personal purposes. Charlie
Meadows (see http://ocpacnews.blogspot.com/) and Mike McCarville (see
http://wwwtmrcom.blogspot.com/) have both done great work compiling an
in depth look at the relationship between Roth, his donors and how Roth
has used his office to grant his donors special favors. I also believe,
if Roth wins, he will use this election as a launching pad to a future
U.S. Senate race or perhaps Governor some day.



On the other hand, I believe Dana Murphy is honest and independent (can’
t be bought). I also believe she wants to serve in this capacity with no
intention to run for another office sometime in the future. I believe
Dana will seek

that delicate balance which is the best for the oil and gas industry and
the consumers at the same time. That is the real job of a corporation
commissioner. I urge you to vote for Dana Murphy and support efficient
and effective government for the benefit of all Oklahomans.


SQ 735 - Vote YES This is the exemption from personal property taxes
for injured veterans and their surviving spouses. Those eligible are
veterans who are 100 percent permanently disabled through military
action or accident or disease contracted while in active service.



SQ 741 Vote NO This requires a person or business to file an
application for an exemption to property taxes and no exemptions could
be granted prior to filing an application. Basically this places a
deadline on individuals and businesses for filing tax exemptions. So if
you fail to do so within a certain period of time, you are out of luck,
and out of money. Meanwhile, there is nothing stopping government from
coming after you for money they think you owe no matter how long it’s
been.



SQ 742 Vote YES The RIGHT to hunt and fish needs to be embedded into our
constitution as a protection from possible future federal government
interference into Oklahoma laws. We don’t know how much the "animal
rights" wack jobs across the nation will gain control over federal
government policies.



SQ 743 Vote YES This breaks up a monopoly and allows legal Oklahoma
wineries to have a more free market with which to sell their wines. They
won’t have to go through a middle man.



THE OKLAHOMA STATE SUPREME COURT – all three voted to give convicted
felon and former State Senator Gene Stipe his state pension. ‘Nuff
said!

Justice John F. Reif Vote NO

Justice Tom Colbert Vote NO

Justice Joseph Watt Vote NO



THE COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS

Justice Charles Johnson Vote Yes – I worked for him in law school. He
is fair minded and tough on crime.

Justice Gary Lumpkin Vote YES – Another fair minded judge.



OKLAHOMA COURT OF CIVIL APPEALS I was not able to find out any
information on the 4 judges on the ballot on this court. This is your
choice.



NATIONAL ELECTIONS


Fourth District:

Tom Cole (R) – Tom is a class act and has proven over the last six years
to be a great conservative leader for Oklahoma in the US House. Tom,
considered to be the “father” of the Republican party in Cleveland
County, understands the political process better than anyone else. He
has a record of voting for tax relief, he’s strong on national defense
and the protection of the unborn. He faces token Democratic opposition,
a sign of respect that even in this Democratic leaning district, the
opposition can’t find a serious challenger.



US Senate:

Jim Inhofe (R) – Senator Inhofe is a proud conservative Republican and
is widely recognized as one of if not the most conservative members in
the US Senate. Liberals nationwide have drawn a bulls eye on his back
and poured in millions of dollars to defeat him – all to no avail. His
opponent, Andrew Rice is so liberal he makes Barack Obama seem like a
moderate! In 2004, Rice organized and led an organization opposed to
the ballot question that defined marriage as between one man and one
woman. During his brief stint in the State Senate, Rice has been a
reliable liberal vote on issues like abortion, crime, taxes and
expansion of government entitlements.



President & Vice President:

John McCain (R) & Sarah Palin (R) – Whether it be judicial
appointments, taxes, abortion policy, national defense, governmental
oversight, or almost any other important issue, McCain/Palin is the
clear choice over Obama/Biden. As frustrated as many Americans are with
the Bush Administration, they should be very careful about “Change” just
for the sake of change. If you value life, do you want to change to a
President with a horrendous pro-abortion voting record and who will most
likely appoint Supreme Court Justices that will keep abortions legal in
the United States? Do you want to change to a President who will
abandon the free market economic principles in favor of socialism? Do
you want to change to a President that thinks it’s a good idea to tax
business owners and other successful people more so Big Brother
government can redistribute it to the poor? Do you want to change to a
President who will cut and run on the War on Terror and sit down face to
face with rogue leaders and terrorist sympathizers? McCain may not be
perfect but he is far better than Obama. Besides, a vote for McCain is
a votre for Sarah Palin and that makes the liberal establishment in
Washington DC furious!

Media Advisory

PrivateLivesPublicPolicy.org is a 501/c/4 not for profit corporation that was created to battle a dangerous trend -- the politically correct media is no longer serving the public interest. If a candidates private life begins to affect public policy issues then we have a right to know abut it. The media is quick to point out when a conservative Republican is charged with public lewdness, but won't talk about Democrats who's personal relationships costs the taxpayers money.

By forming this organization we hope to begin an important discussion about protecting that which is genuinely private, but exposing the abuses of the taxpayers money covered up by politicians and their willing allies in the media who excuse it because of their own bias. We do not support or oppose any candidate for public office, but do believe that the people need unfiltered truth and information.

Charley Gray has His Problems

Ethics Commission reports show Gray has received a thousand dollars from lobbyist Tommy Thomas whose clients include Able Trucking. Gray says he "had no idea Able Trucking was one of his clients, but I can't check into every one. And so long as he says he's not going to appear on their behalf at the Commission, that meets my test."

Gray only received 15-thousand dollars in individual contributions in the last two months. He says in addition to the contributor slip required by the Ethics Commission, he has his contributors sign an additional statement saying they will not appear before the Commission.

Jim Roth Is Unethical

Read before you vote Tuesday. I received this email from Charley Meadows today. Important facts concerning Jim Roth
Bob

Members and friends of the Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee (OCPAC)


In brief, the largest PAC in the nation supporting homosexual candidates considers this one the most important races in the nation (see www.victoryfund.org). In addition, Jim Roth’s Corporation Commission Campaign was a sponsor of the 2008 Gay Pride Parade held earlier this year in Oklahoma City (see www.okcpride.org). Then of course, when Roth was a County Commissioner in Oklahoma County, he supported having pro-homosexual books accessible to small children in the Oklahoma County libraries. Have you ever wondered why the homosexual community from all over America would contribute tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars to Jim Roth’s corporation commission race in OKLAHOMA?

The hyper-tolerant, anything goes liberal crowd will say, all of that character stuff, integrity and sexual preference does not matter. To talk about it is only a diversion from the business at hand. The only thing they will suggest as important, is how well a person does their job. Therefore I want to examine the job performance of Roth as a corporation commissioner.

In one of his TV adds he portrays himself as a tough advocate of the people who stood up to those BIG UTILITIES and said NO to a two billion dollar rate increase. In his silliest commercial, he portrays himself as a penny pinching paperclip counter, a conservationist wanting to save money for the ratepayers. While it is true he voted against the rate increase request, it was actually1.8 billion not 2 billion dollars, he is most likely going to cause the ratepayers to pay far more for electricity in the future. An estimated $5 billion more for electricity over the 40 year life of the generation plant he voted against.

You see, he voted against building a high-tech clean burning coal fired generation plant, next to an existing clean burning coal fired plant. As the administrating judge at the corporation said, this expansion will save the ratepayers significant money over the many years to come.

Roth, will say it was too risky and the utilities shouldn’t be allowed to collect money for the plant before it is built. Again, this is not watching out for the ratepayers as the sooner the utilities could start collecting rates to pay for the plant, the less they would have to borrow and thus this would be less interest that rate payers would eventually have to pay. By the way, what is risky about a coal fired power plant? They have been used for a long time, and the new ones are much improved and much cleaner.

Three of the state’s utilities were going into an unusual partnership in building this expansion which would have saved the ratepayers $100 million dollars in construction costs alone rather than each of them having to build or buy separate facilities. It was estimated the utilities spent up to 50 million dollars in engineering and planning costs to get the project to a vote before the commission said no in a
2 to 1 vote. However, later on, Roth voted for a rate increase to allow the utilities to recover that cost.

Without the badly needed generation capacity, American Electric Power- PSO of Oklahoma was forced to ask for a rate increase to purchase 2 smaller natural gas generation plants. Roth voted for that rate increase. OG&E was forced to purchase a gas fired plant along with the GRDA, and Roth voted for that rate increase. Commissioner Bob Anthony, always the rate payer’s friend, refused to vote on that rate increase as a protest about the higher rates consumers were going to have pay for electricity in the future.

Then of course the popular thing to do today is to be in favor of wind generation as well as other renewable energy. So OG&E requested a huge rate increase to build wind farms in far Northwest Oklahoma and the transmission lines to get that electricity to the metropolitan areas or to be able to transmit that electricity to sell out of state.

Here is the dirty little secret about electricity generated from wind.
When the turbines are moving they are producing cheaper electricity.
Yet, all of the significant cost to those giant windmills and perhaps much of the cost for the transmission lines is a duplication or a doubling of the cost for infrastructure.

The reason is that wind is not a reliable source of electricity. On those brutally hot days of Summer, when there isn’t a whisper of a breeze and the demand for electricity is at peak load, we have to have enough TRADITIONAL generation capacity to provide the necessary electricity. These are high demand times when the wind produces little to nothing and we must pay twice for the generation capacity.

So the question must be asked, where has Jim Roth saved the consumers any money? I would suggest he has cost the ratepayers more and in the long run, much more. If that is the case, why would Mr. Slickster shaft the ratepayers as a commissioner then tell them he was watching out for them?

You might not have to go any further for that answer than to understand who it is, besides the homosexuals, that are supporting and funding his campaign. Raising huge sums of money for him are none other than multi-millionaires and billionaires such as Aubry McClendon, CEO of Chesapeake Energy, George Kaiser of Kaiser Oil and the Bank of Oklahoma, as well as Clay Bennett, married into the Gaylord family and managing partner of the new OKC Thunder NBA basketball team.

McClendon has spent millions in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas fighting the construction of generation plants which would use coal and therefore not buy gas to make electricity. I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to suspect his reason to oppose the coal fueled plants would be to force the utilities to build or buy gas fired plants of which he will be most happy to sell them all the gas they need. I actually want them to sell a lot of gas, but to power autos with, and not to make electricity. That would actually help to make us become less dependent on foreign oil.

One of Mike McCarville’s blogs recently revealed that according to e- mails which were made public in the Seattle trial to move the NBA Sonics to OKC, Jim Roth hinted at the close alliance he shares with McClendon. In a 2007 letter which he subsequently wrote to the sports editor of the Seattle times he said, “From the beginning, Clay and Aubrey initiated a genuine kindness and friendship toward my partner and me. They have publicly and consistently supported me, even pushing back when right-wing attacks have occurred.”

It appears there is a close relationship between these powerful men and Roth, who certainly went to bat for them when the homosexual community in Seattle was attacking them while they were in the process of moving the team to Oklahoma.

Bottom line, I believe Roth is a puppet on a string for people that I believe want to control and use the regulatory power of government for their personal purposes. I also believe, if Roth wins, he will use this election as a launching pad to a future U.S. Senate race or perhaps Governor some day.

On the other hand, I believe Dana Murphy is honest, independent (can’t be bought), is supremely prepared as she has a degree in geology, law and was a hearing judge at the commission for several years. I also believe she wants to serve in this capacity with no intention to run for another office sometime in the future. I believe Dana will seek that delicate balance which is the best for the oil and gas industry and the consumers at the same time. That is the real job of a corporation commissioner. I urge folks to vote for Dana Murphy and support efficient and effective government for the benefit of all Oklahomans.

Oprah The AntiChrist Hear Pastor Manning

Obama Would not Allow This

Under Obamaland the below story would read. Pizza delivery turned sour. Deliveryman robbed and beaten to death by two innocent robbers that just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. No charges filled against the robbers.
Bob

LUFKIN, Texas 10-24-08 — A pizza delivery man who was taking an order to a house in East Texas pulled out a gun and opened fire on two would-be robbers, police said.
One of the alleged robbers was hospitalized after getting shot in the back, Lufkin police said. The Papa John's pizza delivery man, who's licensed to carry a handgun, wasn't hurt.
The shooting was Tuesday night, after the delivery man walked up to a house and rang a doorbell, Lufkin police said. It turned out the house was vacant and two armed men approached him from the side of the house, The Lufkin Daily News reported Thursday. The delivery man drew a .22 caliber Derringer and fired two shots, and the assailants ran away, police said.
It appears unlikely the delivery man will face any charges since he "was defending himself at the time of the shooting," Lufkin Police Lt. David Young said.
A call placed to the restaurant and a call to the chain's corporate headquarters in Louisville, Ky., weren't immediately returned Thursday.
Police said Johnx R. Greer, 18, was arrested at a hospital where he was treated for a gunshot wound to the back. He's been charged with aggravated robbery and was being held in the Angelina County Jail on a $100,000 bond. His attorney, John Tunnell, did not return a call Thursday.
The other suspect hasn't been found

Acorn/Democrat Conspiracy

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now -- or Acorn -- the troubled left-wing activist group, has new headaches. Last week Michael Slater, head of its Project Vote, admitted that some 400,000 of its claimed 1.3 million newly registered voters were rejected by election officials as either duplicates or fraudulent -- i.e. it doesn't sound as if Acorn's vaunted "quality control" efforts were all that effective.

Some reasons why may be exposed next week in a lawsuit filed by the Republican Party of Pennsylvania in state court. The Web site PolitickerPA reports that Anita Moncrief, an Acorn worker in Washington D.C. from 2005 to 2008, will testify that the group engaged in "minimal to nonexistent" checking of its voter registration work during her time with Project Vote.

The Republican suit, filed by Pittsburgh attorney Heather Heidelbaugh, demands that the Pennsylvania Secretary of State follow federal law requiring that first-time voters using an absentee ballot show some form of identification. It also seeks to have Acorn turn over its voter registration lists, identify registrants who signed up fraudulently and instruct them not to vote.
