Vote out Pledge Breaking Congressman Markwayne Mullin!

Rep. Markwayne Mullin RINO-OK

According to a July 5, 2017 article by Cristina Marcos published on Congressman Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma has decided to violate his original pledge to serve only six years in congress and run for another term. 

Marcos writing for The Hill reports:

In a video posted by his campaign, Mullin said he and his family originally only expected a six-year run when he first launched a bid for the House in 2012.
But after feeling frustrated during his first two terms trying to work with the Obama administration, Mullin said he wanted to stick around while President Trump is in office.
"We looked at each other and we said, 'We're running again,' " Mullin said of a conversation with his wife, Christie.
"We understand that people are going to be upset. And we get that. We understand it," Mullin said. "I'm not hiding from that. Because we did say we were going to serve six years."
Mullin appeared jointly in the video with his wife, who said they initially worried that a tenure in Congress would negatively impact their family and plumbing business.

"We truly felt like we would serve six years and have to come back and patch together our family, like pick our business up," Christie Mullin said.
But their worst fears never came to fruition, she said.
"Our kids said, 'Dad, yes, you have to run again!' " she said.
Markwayne Mullin attributed his decision to having a better understanding of how politics works and said his position has simply evolved over time.
"I don't think there's one person that's never changed their mind six years apart from each other or how they would approach things," Mullin said.
This is not the first time that Congressman Mullin has drawn criticism during his time in office. Back in April Mr. Mullin was under fire for saying that it is "bull crap" the idea that taxpayers pay his salary.
On April 13. 2017 Nikita Vladimirov wrote
Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) faced off with constituents at a town hall this week, telling the members of the audience that they don't pay his salary.
"You say you pay for me to do this? That’s bullcrap," Mullin said at the town hall in Jay, Okla., according to a video of the incident.

"I pay for myself. I paid enough taxes before I got here and continue to through my company to pay my own salary. This is a service. No one here pays me to go,” he added.
After constituents pushed back, Mullin reiterated that being a lawmaker is not "how I make my living."
“I’m just saying ... this is a service for me, not a career, and I thank God this is not how I make my living,” he said.
The article states that Mullin owns Mullin Plumbing. Which is presumably how Mullin makes most of his money since he claims not to be a "career politician".
IR knew nothing of Mullin until this past week. But just judging by the tone that Mullin takes and the overall dishonesty that permeates from this man's mouth. He should be voted out of office! 
Fortunately Republicans already have a good candidate challenging Mr. Mullin in next years GOP congressional primary. His name is Jarrin Jackson. He ran against Mullin in the 2016 primary. He is an Afghan War veteran, an executive of a nonprofit organization, and a fierce advocate of term limits. He also opposes nation building.

Hill's Columns on Mullin:

Mullin's Primary Challenger Jarrin Jackson's website:


  1. First, allow me to congratulate Indy Republican for increasingly well-written columns and for a more frequently published report presence. As a local and state political observer since the 70's it is my humble opinion IR does the best job filling an online void in offering a voice to the people they would not otherwise have; my belief is inclusive of the low-watt constellation of the current Hoosier-based RINO political electronic bloggers and from "connected" (is "corrupt hypocrite" the correct phrase?) crony RINO Hoosier attorneys on talk radio.

    As for the disgusting Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin, I became aware of his sorry performance in "public service" with his nasty temperament displayed on a YouTube video glaringly showing his nasty retorts and his haughty claims taxpayers do not pay his salary. What a jerk. Sadly, this creep is not the only politician to feel this way or to break a campaign promise. Democrats, too, are not at all brightness and light. Democrats, just like RINO Republicans, break promises to voters on a regular basis.

    I also applaud your hyperlink affording interested persons to easily donate funds to Afghan war vet Jarrin Jackson who is a candidate challenging Markwayne. Let's hope the voters removed the lying Mullins from office. Oklahoma's deserve an honest Representative and one who is not so damned arrogant and nasty.

    1. I'm happier that he is opposed to nation building than the fact he is a vet.

    2. The IR gang is most thrilled that he both opposes nation building and favors term limits for congress! Which IR agrees with Jarrin Jackson completely on those issues!

    3. Annon we as always appreciate your support. We do what we can to say and report what we believe is important. We are touched that there are many who feel we are giving them and important voice. Our advice to all those out there to start blogs or sites of there own. Don't worry about how many readers or followers one has. Getting your voices out at all is a good thing. If poor Gary Welsh had only realized how loved he was. We show our admiration for him and all patriots by being true to ourselves no matter the cost. No number of readers is to large or small. We will write for anyone who wants to read us. As long as we get to write our way. Writing has integrity just as a person does and often just as rarely.

    4. Keep shining the light on those in the muddled middle: the bipartisan support of foreign ntervention by DC and the bipartisan support of crony intervention in the economy at the statehouse and in most city halls in central Indiana.
