Oklahoma City and Tulsa will never be able to truly thrive and prosper until the influence of rural Oklahoma is eradicated and eliminated #Oklahoma #SQ820 #OKSQ820
Proving my point, those that are offended have resorted to personal attacks and claim that what I am saying is hate speech. Hate speech is what extremists resort to when when logic and rationality fail, so to say that these critics are projecting is a significant understatement.
Not that I should have to clarify this, but I AM NOT advocating for the elimination of towns and/or people, it’s ideology + influence. But, this is Twitter. Not the sharpest tools in the shed with some responses. Private education in our rural Oklahoma schools at work! #SQ820

I hope you enjoy some more sunlight, Judd Blevins of Enid, Oklahoma.

#EnidOK #Oklahoma heads up, you have a white supremacist running for office.
Judson Blevins aka "Conway" claimed credit for hanging this white supremacist anti-Lankford banner in 2017.

Another reason why I should leave San Francisco is the fact that I have fought every day for this city and rarely ever is there any support or team work. Whenever I walk through San Francisco I only ever see @bettersoma , @mattdorsey and Mr. J J in the trenches on the frontlines.
People complain every day but don’t ever do anything about it. It makes everything seem pointless. @michelletandler talks about fentanyl. When is she going to talk about our fentanyl emergency petition that has almost 1000 signatures? It takes two seconds to share petition.
I love @GMcDee2 @JacquiBerlinn because they aren’t picking and choosing what is “cool” to support. They support everything that is dedicated to combating fentanyl. They not only do their own fighting but they also support other people fights instead of picking what is “cool.”

2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.

Leaders of the #FiveTribes have gathered to announce their endorsement of @joy4ok for governor. Former Stitt secretary of Native American affairs is emceeing. Cherokee Chief @ChuckHoskin_Jr is up first.

It's no secret that Gov. Kevin Stitt has clashed with and angered tribes ... Image
Hoskin speaks of the importance of #oklaed and the #Cherokee Nation's history of educational priorities. He calls Hofmeister "a dedicated education professional" who understands "the very Cherokee idea of working together." (2/?) Image
Flashing back in time, briefly, I mentioned when former #okleg Republican representative Lisa Billy resigned from the Stitt cabinet in December 2019, less than a year after taking the post and watching him clash with tribal leaders over gaming compacts.…

If you want to understand how the Supreme Court rules on politics rather than the law look no further than the arena of Federal Indian Law.

Today #SCOTUS changed who has criminal jurisdiction on over 300 reservations not based on precedent or even the facts on the ground…
But based on #Oklahoma’s exaggerated & demonstrably false claims about the impact of #McGirt.

Our reporting found OK’s claims in #Castro were incorrect & likely fabricated. But it didn’t matter.…
When it comes to tribal sovereignty the Supreme Court is repeatedly more wedded to the expectations of white Americans than our constitution, federal law, or even the truth.

Here's a list of #Oklahoma politicians who have taken money from EPIC charter schools' co-founders David Chaney and Ben Harris and former CFO Josh Brock, all of whom were arrested today on RICO and other criminal complaints. 🧵
These records only go back to 2016, but you can see that the founders definitely spread their wealth around to numerous #Oklahoma politicians, including this year's two major gubernatorial candidates before they were opponents - Stitt and Hofmeister, as well as former AG Hunter
Page 1 of Chaney's donations. Ignore the first two entries, the David Chaney from Perkins. That's a different guy. Image

Heartening to know that today there are gobs & scads of young #Dentist's who want to learn more about who precisely WAS "C.C. Bass, M.D", and what did he have to say about #PreventiveDentistry?
For the last few decades or so, just about any young #Dentist, when they first learn the real story of who "C. C. Bass, M.D." is, and what he actually did, are puzzled.
A couple of channels results from their #DentalSkool teaching, and thus their thinking.

#BREAKING The #Oklahoma governor just signed a *total* abortion ban with a Texas-style enforcement mechanism. It goes into effect immediately making Oklahoma the first state to totally outlaw abortion since #RoeVWade in 1973. What this means 🧵
The impact will be disastrous for Oklahomans. It will also have severe ripple effects, especially for Texas patients who had been traveling to OK in large numbers after the TX 6-week abortion ban went into effect in September.
Some basic stats. In Oklahoma there are:

* 5 abortion providers (as of yesterday, they can no longer provide abortion care)

* 890,000 women aged 15-49 (plus people who can become pregnant who don’t identify as women)

* 4,780 abortions obtained in 2017

Normalize calling us Native Nations rather than Tribes. Specifically, the term five civilized tribes is adhering to the colonization of who we are (imo). Referring to us as Tribes infers we are inferior to ‘civilized’ people. And capitalize the words. 1)
The most recent economic impact data from 2017 shows the Native Nations contributed 15.5 billion to the state of OK. Our activities supported over 96,000 jobs in the state, 4.6 billion in wages & benefits to OK workers, & 12.9 billlion in state production of good & services 2)
Additionally, Native Nations brought 42.6 million into the state for construction & maintenance & have provided more than 1.5 billion in exclusivity fees, of which 1.3 billion go to support statewide education programs. This is the info that needs to be shared. Mvto 🪶 #Oklahoma
