OKLAHOMA CITY — Connie Johnson has a major mountain to climb if she wants to upset Republican James Lankford in the U.S. Senate race.
Although neither candidate is the incumbent, this seat currently held by Tom Coburn has been a GOP stronghold since 1968 when Henry Bellmon defeated Democrat Mike Monroney.
Johnson and Lankford will square off in the Nov. 4 general election to decide who fills an unexpired term due to Coburn’s resignation, which takes effect in January. The winner would face a re-election bid in 2016.
At least the British media have noticed that global warming is a hoax. Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe wrote the same in 2012, but he is a Christian and a Conservative so of course America Media would discount his collected evidence.
A judge in England ruled Al Gore’s movie “untruthful” and that it could not be shown in schools without a disclaimer pointing out mistakes of fact, but Gore has made millions with disingenuous presentations of failed, if not faked, ideology. Worshiping the creation rather than the Creator is stupid, but a faith none-the-less. Further, the United Nations is looking for a new spokeswoman – to be, as the Leftist BBC noted, “the ‘Malala’ of the climate change movement, serving as a voice that will energize this September’s climate change conference.” Poor Al, fails again – rejected as storyteller as his fairytale crumbles.

Stuart Ramsay, Chief Correspondent for Sky News reports the chilling story of the first Islamic State suicide bomber caught in Iraq who says there are growing numbers “from all over the world there. There is British amongst them. They are from Asian countries, Europe and America. From everywhere,” he said.
In response to the Obama Administration disapproval of a one-year extension of Oklahoma’s Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) flexibility, Oklahoma officials have responded with anger and disgust. Democrat candidate for governor, Joe Dorman disagrees.
“The Obama Administration doesn’t like when Oklahomans buck big government regulations, and [Thursday] the Administration responded by penalizing our children by failing to grant the one-year extension of the ESEA flexibility,” said Sen. Jim Inhofe.
“Oklahomans want education reform that sets standards created and certified by Oklahoma’s institutions, community leaders, and parents. Instead of supporting these values, the Obama Administration has chosen to make it more expensive and difficult to achieve the state’s education goals that, once met, will exceed the requirements set by the U.S. Department of Education. As seen with ObamaCare taxes or the Endangered Species Act rulings, today’s decision continues the trend of this Administration punishing Oklahoma for making decisions that represent the goals and interests of its constituents.”
TULSA, OK—It was an long hard win, but a big one for the University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane as it took regulation and two overtimes to lift TU over Tulane 38-31 in front of 19,032 in H.A. Chapman Stadium on Thursday night. The Golden Hurricane earned their first win since they defeated Louisiana Tech on the road last November.
It capped off a comeback in a game where the home side had trailed the entire game.
