NEBRASKA HAS THE BEST LEGISLATURE MONEY CAN BUY
Politics I have been actively involved in legislative campaigns for over four decades and can speak from personal knowledge on the information presented in this article.  Money has always played a significant role in political campaigns, however, the role of lobbyists has changed, and not for the better. There are two time worn adages which apply as much if not more so today than in days gone buy.  Those are, “To get along, you must go along” and “A legislator ‘lives’ on the Bills that he passes.”  The purpose of this writing is to present facts and the readers can be the judges. It is not my purpose to point an accusing finger at any one of the forty-nine Members of the Nebraska Legislature in particular, with one exception, but rather to inform voters of the role money plays in campaigns.

VAN CALLS FOR FLUSHING THE GOP CONSPIRACY COMMODE
Politics On Tuesday, 7 August 2018 the Lincoln JournalStar newspaper published a letter to the editor which I submitted.  In case you missed it, I’ll post it here below for your information.  It was entitled “Term limit push is corrupt proposal.”  For the record, the thoughts contained in the letter were similar to those later expressed by the newspaper and still later by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. While it was not mentioned in the article, J.L. Spray, a Lincoln attorney, is the current Nebraska National Republican Committeeman.  Immediately following the publication of the letter, Spray engaged in politically blatant reprisal against me and my campaign for a seat in the Nebraska Legislature. Read to the end and you will learn the risk one takes in Nebraska when one stands up for what is right and puts principles and the public before partisan politics.

VAN VALKENBURG SAYS HANSEN SHOULD BE HONEST AND WITHDRAW
Politics This document was originally emailed to the media as a “News Release” shortly after I filed a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus in Lancaster County District Court. I was informed by Darlene Starman (Governor Pete Ricketts Lancaster County Re-election Committee Chair), and a well known Republican operative, that nothing I send to the Lincoln JournalStar newspaper would be used or printed since I “was no longer believable.” While Shelly Kulhanek has denied the accuracy of Starman’s claim, she later informed me after receiving this release that “we are not going to use what you send and engage in a back and forth between you and Matt Hansen.”  It is a fact, Lincoln attorney and Nebraska National Republican Party Committeeman J.L. Spray has had enough political clout in the past to mislead an assistant Lancaster County Attorney, the Lancaster County Assessor and two members of the Lancaster County Board on matters relating to property tax exemptions Therefore, it should be obvious he has enough “political horsepower” to shut down my media exposure.  Just as he is attempting to screw the people out of a chance to vote their preference in the next mayoral election, there is little doubt he can and is bushwhacking my legislative campaign.

KATHY TAYLOR WILL BE THE NEXT MAYOR OF TULSA
Politics
After a week of taking steps to put vansopinion back on line after the site was hacked five times, we hope that my readers won’t be inconvenienced further. We strongly suspect that Congressman John Sullivan and his stooges are not happy with a previous story which predicted Kathy Taylor would oppose Bill LaFortune in the General mayoral election forthcoming. My predictions were so accurate, the Tulsa County Republican operatives are now experiencing anal isometrics (that’s where it puckers evenly all the way around}. And rightly so, let me tell you here, before you hear and read it in the media what the results of next weeks voting will be. Both John Sullivan and Jim Inhofe had better have nitroglycerine tablets handy if they choose to read further.

OUR POLITICAL PARTIES NEED A FEW WITH MARTIN LUTHER'S SPIRIT
Politics As I sat last Sunday listening to a young Pastor at my church give one of the very best Reformation Day sermons I have ever heard in my fifty-one years of being a Lutheran Christian, I pondered not only the goings on in the several Christian denominations today but also the applicability of the "Luther Spirit" to a revitalization of the basic tenets of our two major political parties. I will save my thoughts and opinions on the moral decay and hypocrisy in the church bodies of today for future writings, but for this epistle, I would like to turn thoughts to what has happened to the Democrat and Republican Political Parties and what might be done about it.

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
Politics For the information of the thousands who read vansopinion.com and the good folks with whom "ya'll" communicate, there are a few things about me my dedicated readers should know. I have received close to a hundred phone calls concerning several articles which I posted on my website recently. Since the questions arose from things which I have written, this seems like the most appropriate medium to "set the record straight." I have been and will continue to be critical of Congressman John Sullivan's (R-OK) conduct. Likewise, I believe Sullivan has been and will be an anchor on Tulsa Mayor Bill LaFortune's bid for re-election. Talk show "host" Michael Del Giorno who has a morning "show" on radio station KFAQ-AM in Tulsa has, in my less than humble opinion, chosen to use his time "on the air" to praise Sullivan and bash LaFortune unduly. I have had things to say on the subjects and will be saying a good deal more on them in the future.

HELP WANTED - MAYOR OF TULSA, OKLAHOMA
Politics If you have good interpersonal skills, are in no way connected with Congressman John Sullivan and are willing to change your name to "Undecided", you could very well become the next mayor of my home town - Tulsa, Oklahoma. In will be reported by the local media in a few days that the current mayor, Bill LaFortune, might be in trouble with the Republican folks who reside AND VOTE in the former Oil Capitol of the World.

POPPE - A POPULAR PASTOR WITH POLITICAL POTENTIAL
Politics I have been a confirmed member of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod for a bit more than a half-century. In that time, due to moving around the country and by choice, I have been a member of a number of churches of that denomination and thus have been associated with several Pastors. Without reservation or hesitation I can say the Rev. Clint Poppe, of Lincoln's Good Shepherd Lutheran Church - my current Pastor - has earned my respect and confidence more than any other before. He and I regularly discuss subjects of both theological and political substance and rarely disagree. Poppe has been elected to two political offices before moving to Lincoln. In my opinion, we might do well to consider tapping him for future public service.
