20 Lies That Liberals Believe

Over the past few weeks, I have collected a list of lies that liberals have been promulgating thru various outlets. Not all liberals necessarily believe every one of these lies, but I have no doubt that all liberals believe most of them.

Do any conservatives believe some of these lies? Perhaps, and if you do, I’m afraid your membership in the OK Politechs Conservative Clubâ„¢ is going to have to go up for review.

College basketball players who might possibly believe that homosexuality is a sin should not be allowed to play in the NCAA basketball tournament. Kids in cages at border detention facilities prior to Biden’s inauguration – Evil. Kids in cages at border detention facilities after Biden’s inauguration – Not a story. The President of the United States having to use a picture book at a press conference is not concerning. When cops shoot someone it’s because cops are bad. When anyone else shoots someone it’s because […] → Keep reading

Trump Is Right and He’s Done Republicans A Huge Service

Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants seem to be dominating the news lately. The media have made it the story and have taken great glee in reporting about the backlash The Donald is receiving for what he said. Macy’s, Serta mattresses, Univision, NASCAR and NBC have all either cut ties with Trump or announced they will be terminating agreements with him. My first thought after reading all that was to wonder how in the world Donald Trump has his own line of Serta mattresses. Who would want that? But I digress. The Donald doesn’t seem to care about all the damage, saying on Fox & Friends, “I think it’s bad for my brand. I don’t care. You know maybe I’m leading in the polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers. I lose people.”

But what exactly was it he said that has made him the target of all this backlash? I’ve seen it misquoted on a few […] → Keep reading

Islam: The Evil Invading America

It has been near impossible lately to read any news without seeing Islam mentioned. With so many Islamic terrorist groups spreading their evil, murdering Christians and other non-Islamists in the most horrific ways, more attention has been given to Islam and to the evil for which it stands. You might already be asking yourself, did he just say Islam is evil? Yes, I did.

Certainly there are many nonviolent Muslims in the world, and they may even be in the majority, but the fact remains that the core tenets of Islam are violence, death, murder, rape and pedophilia. That the majority (just guessing) of Muslims do not take part in this evil does not change the fact that Islam is pure evil. U.S. politicians on both sides of the aisle frequently dismiss the evil of Islam, stating that Islam is a religion of peace and that the ‘extremists’ have hijacked it in order to conduct their terrorist activities. They’ve got […] → Keep reading

Democrats, Burger King, Illegal Immigration and Hypocrisy

Yesterday, Burger King agreed to buy the Canadian restaurant chain Tim Hortons for about $11.4 billion, creating one of the largest fast-food corporations in the world. As part of the deal, Burger King will move its home up north to Canada where corporate taxes are significantly lower than the United States. Under current U.S. law, a company merging with a foreign company can move its headquarters abroad and take advantage of lower taxes, as long as at least twenty percent of its shares are held by the foreign company’s shareholders once the merger is complete. Management and operations of the merging company are still allowed to remain in the U.S. after the merger.

The news has angered some Democrats, who complain that corporate inversions should not be allowed. Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) has proposed that Congress pass inversion legislation to prevent corporations from moving abroad. He said, “The reported deal with Burger King, an American company, highlights the need for […] → Keep reading

In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants?

An unsigned opinion piece in The Oklahoman favors allowing illegal immigrants to attend college in Oklahoma at in-state tuition rates. The editorial refers to them five times as ‘undocumented’ but that is just a euphemism for illegal, which is what they are. The editorial takes the position that children “whose parents brought them into the United States illegally shouldn’t bear the legal or financial burden of that decision.”

Also from the editorial: “Fewer than 500 undocumented students attend Oklahoma’s public colleges and universities. Not surprisingly, the school with the highest number of these students is Oklahoma City Community College, with 163. OCCC is in southwest Oklahoma City where many Hispanic families have settled in recent years. Tuition is low at OCCC and other two-year schools compared with four-year schools. Tulsa Community College, also a two-year school, reported the second-highest number of undocumented students, with 94.”

If they have exact numbers on all this then it is obviously known who these […] → Keep reading

Amnesty for Who?

With all the hullabaloo about amnesty I thought it would be a good idea to take a step back and look at it a different way. Instead of discussing whether or not to grant amnesty, let’s look at just who is it a lot of people in Congress are wanting to give amnesty.

A brief description: They enter illegally, knowing they are breaking the law. Some commit their crime while armed. They sometimes coordinate their activities so as to avoid detection. They do damage to property while illegally entering. Funds have to be spent to try and prevent them from entering. Once they have entered they take things to which they are not entitled, causing financial burden. They cause more money to be spent on the justice system. They cause people living in certain areas to feel unsecured in their homes. They cause insurance rates to go up. Some have terrorized people who caught them in the act. On occasion, […] → Keep reading

Immigration Reform – Euphemism for Vote Buying

With the Republican Party openly discussing immigration reform and changing positions on immigration as a party in order to attract Hispanic voters, I thought this would be a good time to review some immigration laws that are already enacted.

The General Law on Population enacted in April 2000 mandates that federal, local and municipal police cooperate with federal immigration authorities in the arrest of illegal immigrants. Illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Deported immigrants who are deported and attempt to reenter the country are subject to ten years in prison. Violation of your visa is punishable by up to six years in prison. Citizens who provide help to illegal immigrants are to be prosecuted. The law also says foreigners can be deported if they are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” violate the law, are not “mentally or physically healthy” or lack the “necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents.

Catholic Church Sues State of Alabama Over Immigration Law

The Catholic Church and the Department of Justice have both filed lawsuits against the state of Alabama’s new immigration law, scheduled to take effect September 1st. The law “requires law enforcement officers to attempt to determine the immigration status of a person who they suspect is an unauthorized alien of this country,” said Alabama Republicans. It also makes it illegal to transport, conceal, harbor or house unauthorized aliens. Additionally, school districts are now required to check the immigration status of new enrollees.

The DOJ’s lawsuit claims the law intrudes on the federal government’s immigration policies and responsibilities. I haven’t seen the lawsuit but I’m sure it makes no mention of the feds lack of enforcement of those policies and responsibilities.

The Catholic Church claims the law criminalizes the Church’s mission and interferes with the right to the free exercise of religion. Archbishop Thomas Rodi of Mobile, AL said, “No law is just which prevents the proclamation of the Gospel […] → Keep reading
