Oklahoma Governor Bans All Nonessential State-Funded Travel to California

The nation/State of California has determined that unless your State has the right social policies and laws—based on California values—government officials, college conference attendees and more are not allowed to go to the offending State. For instance, Texas, North Carolina, Iowa, Kentucky, Alabama, and Mississippi all have laws protecting the unborn.  California policy is to kill babies—so our State bans our officials from going to those States and more.  Now Oklahoma has been added to the banned list.

Oklahoma did not cry, whine or beg forgiveness.  Their Governor has banned his officials from going to California.  What would happen if the twenty some odd States Newsom and his totalitarians have banned did a joint ban of California? 

“On Thursday, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed an executive order halting all non-essential state travel to California.

Under Governor Stitt’s executive order only certain business, sports, and education events will be allowed to travel to California.

The move by the Governor comes two years after California banned state-funded travel to Oklahoma following former Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin’s signing of a law that allows adoption agencies to deny placing children into gay and lesbian couples based on religious or moral issues. It also follows San Francisco’s city-funded travel ban to Oklahoma and 22 others states with restrictive abortion laws and the barring of contracting business with any company in those states. San Francisco’s ban just began only weeks ago on January 1st.”

As a nation California is a leader in trying to divide and break up the union.  Maybe if the other States told Newsom to pound sand, maybe we could get an honest Administration in the Capitol.

Oklahoma Governor Bans All Nonessential State-Funded Travel to California

Oklahoma’s ban comes two years after California’s state-funded travel ban to Oklahoma

By Evan Symon, California Globe,  1/23/20    

On Thursday, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed an executive order halting all non-essential state travel to California.

Under Governor Stitt’s executive order only certain business, sports, and education events will be allowed to travel to California.

The move by the Governor comes two years after California banned state-funded travel to Oklahoma following former Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin’s signing of a law that allows adoption agencies to deny placing children into gay and lesbian couples based on religious or moral issues. It also follows San Francisco’s city-funded travel ban to Oklahoma and 22 others states with restrictive abortion laws and the barring of contracting business with any company in those states. San Francisco’s ban just began only weeks ago on January 1st.

Governor Stitt’s ban was partially in response to the actions of California and San Francisco and the estimated millions that Oklahoma has lost as a result.

“California and its elected officials over the past few years have banned travel to the State of Oklahoma in an effort to politically threaten and intimidate Oklahomans for their personal values. Enough is enough,” said Governor Stitt in a statement. “If California’s elected officials don’t want public employees traveling to Oklahoma, I am eager to return the gesture on behalf of Oklahoma’s pro-life stance.”

However the Governor’s office did confirm that the ban was also partially signed due to President Donald Trump’s upcoming attendance at the National March for Life, the anti-abortion rally taking place Friday in Washington.

“It’s not solely about the bans, although that probably made them mad,” said Douglas Singer, a former speechwriter for a Health Group who often responded to new abortion laws. “We’ve seen this before. A president or higher elected official gets ready to give a speech about abortion, an act that doesn’t happen often, and a lot of people scramble to get mentioned in the speech.”

“Trump will at least give a statement around the March for Life, if not give a speech there. The Governor is likely playing for a mention to lock down support, as well as show that Oklahoma won’t be pushed around by ‘big, mean’ states like California, even though that ban has been in place for years.”

The travel ban, which isn’t expected to significantly affect California financially, went into effect upon signing. California’s current state travel-ban due to anti-homosexual and anti-abortion laws also includes states such as Texas, North Carolina, Iowa, Kentucky, Alabama, and Mississippi.

  1. John Steele says

    Please build a wall around kalyfornia so the POLITICAL CANCER named Kalyfornia can’t spread to other states.

    • John Steele, I poignantly feel your frustration, because I live and suffer in the Peoples Republic. But surely you know the Supreme Court in the 1930s forbid any state from barring out of state residents (think of dust bowl Oakies), from migrating for better economic opportunity in another state. If you abandon California to progressive socialism, some people will eventually flee “hell-hole” conditions for a better environment, carrying the socialist cancer with them where they next plant themselves. Purging the progressive socialists is the only way out.

  2. All States should jump on this ban including Mexico, Honduras. etc

  3. Seems reasonable. I hope all other states which are at odds with the radical leftism of California will follow suit. Maybe they ought to deny entry into their states for any California State official for ANY reason, not just State business. Stop them at the borders. Stop them at the airports.

    • Amen

      • Mr.Newson you in a dream world not a one day of hard work(I mean getting your hands ditiy like blue collar work dis) the only thing you done sit on your bu—. You don’t’t care about nobody put your self! You Democratic made ‘this mess and like the Democratic that it’s the other person problem and it’s alway going the taxpayer that work twice hard to pay for what you made just like NACNY. AndJerry Brow. This will be filling Charter 13 by the time you leave office.

    • Didn’t Churchill say: “We will fight them in the fields, we will fight them in the streets………” etc?
