Fallin Narcissistic Truth Telling

August 26, 2014

Politicians often have a narcissistic way of telling the truth.  Narcissism is “the pursuit of gratification of one’s own attributes, derived from arrogant pride.”  If the truth makes them look good they tend to blab it to anyone willing to listen.  If it shines a negative light on them, the truth is often hidden or stretched.

Governor Fallin’s recent lack of blab on a federal grant request, suggests an example of narcissistic truth telling.  Fallin recently said, “Every month we learn a new lesson about why the state of Oklahoma should stay as far away from ObamaCare as possible.”  “The law has cost millions of people their health insurance, is failing to bend the cost curve for medical care, and is constantly in danger of being thrown out by courts for being constitutionally suspect.”  (I’ll go ahead and say it, it’s unconstitutional)

I wholeheartedly agree with that statement, but, there is a but.  Oklahoma Watch inadvertently and inaccurately reported on July 31, that the state had chosen not to participate in the State Innovation Models $700 million grant program.  The inaccuracies in that report were due to the Governor’s office failure to disclose applying for the grant, even after specifically being asked about the program during the interview.

On July 18, 2014, only two weeks before the Oklahoma Watch interview, Fallin requested the maximum amount of $3 million on the grant application.  Her stated reason was, because it is a “health system innovation that makes good business sense.”  Which is it?  Is ObamaCare something to stay away from, or is it an innovation?

Advancing Connecting the Americas 2022

OK-SAFE, Inc. – More evidence that the political class is charting the course for more  international entanglements, as well as the advancement of international law and regulatory authority in this country.

Assuming, of course, we even have something called “this country” anymore.

From the Latin American Herald Tribune, Monday, August 5, 2014:

Clinton, Colombia’s Foreign Minister Meet to Advance Connecting the Americas 2022

“WASHINGTON – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Colombian Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin Cuellar met on Thursday in New York City with foreign ministers from numerous governments of the Western Hemisphere.

Leaders met at a side event during the 67th United Nations General Assembly to advance Connecting the Americas 2022 (Connect 2022), an initiative launched at the Sixth Summit of the Americas in April 2012.

Through political will and close collaboration among partner countries of the Americas, Connect 2022 aims to strengthen regulatory frameworks and promote electrical inter-connections to achieve access to electricity for all citizens of the hemisphere within a decade, improving the quality of life of all peoples of the Americas.

Representatives of international financial institutions, including the Inter-American Development Bank, The World Bank, and the Organization of American States participated in the meeting and re-affirmed their support for Connect 2022.”

Connecting the Americas 2022 – From the U.S. Department of State:
Connect 2022, launched by Colombia’s former Minister of Mines and Energy Mauricio Cardenas and the U.S. Secretary of State, is a hemispheric initiative, which establishes a decade-long goal to achieve universal access to electricity through enhanced electrical interconnections, power sector investment, renewable energy development, and cooperation. Connect 2022, endorsed by heads of state in the Summit declaration, supports the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA), involving all governments of the Western Hemisphere, the private sector, IDB, World Bank, and OAS. It is advanced bilaterally and sub-regionally in North America; Central America with Mexico and Colombia; the Andes with Chile; Brazil and Southern Cone; and the Caribbean.
