Governor Kevin Stitt signed a proclamation Tuesday to rename US 287 roadway in Oklahoma the “Donald J. Trump Highway.” The road is 20 miles along the Texas Oklahoma border.
Oklahoma has a law that a person must be dead for 3 years before naming a landmark after them. However, GOP lawmakers in the state gave this proclamation an exemption.
The new name will go into effect on November 1 of this year.

Pro-Defund the Police Gubernatorial Candidate has NYPD Detail, Lives on Military Base for ‘Affordability’
Jumaane Williams is ‘hypocritical’ for living on a secure military base, critics say
Hypocrisy is no stranger to Democrats, but New York gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams is sparking outrage over his. Williams, an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, is relying on…the police…to protect him as he runs for governor.
Williams not only travels with a detail of New York City’s NYPD officers, but he also lives on a military base. The military base also provides 24/7 security. Williams, a self-proclaimed racial justice advocate, was elected as the New York City public advocate in 2019 after serving on the NYC Council.
Williams lives on the Fort Hamilton U.S. Army Garrison in Brooklyn, where anyone requesting entry must submit a background check and go through security checkpoints. NYPD security detail travels with him each day, provided to him because of his position for the city.
Williams proudly describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, and his campaign website touts a vow to “bring transformational change to Albany.” When New York City agreed to cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion as a result of the defund the police movement, Williams said the cut was an insufficient amount.
To add insult to injury, Williams lives on the military base simply for its “affordability.” A representative for Williams told the New York Post “when he needed a new home for his family in 2019, they chose a publicly available unit in Fort Hamilton not because of its position on a base but because it offered the best unit for his family’s price point and criteria.”
An area official with knowledge of the base’s housing process told the Post “these aren’t apartments listed on Zillow. It’s essentially a gated community with stunning waterfront views protected by tanks and soldiers with M16s.”
Not only are our tax dollars, but also our police and military forces helping to protect and house a man who is actively working to undo it all with his liberal policies.
