This is what Amphetamines does to people
Representative Colby Schwartz Secret Life, Part II
Oklahoma’s Pill Popping Legislator
A few weeks ago we ran the story about Rep. Colby Schwartz’s double life as told to us by a very long term girlfriend. Schwartz put forth a public image of a God fearing middle class person, holding office and voting with the RINOs, active in church, with a devoted family. But hidden behind the mask of normalcy was an alleged sordid second life complete with a sexual addiction, prescription drug abuse, and an apparently insatiable sex drive that totally dominated the man’s daily routine according to his instant messages to his ten year long affair partner.
We briefly covered the reports of prescription drug abuse in the previous story and a medical doctor on our email list asked for more information on what kind of pills Rep. Schwartz was said to be abusing. We were asked to get that information so he could comment on how the drug/alcohol combination would affect Rep. Schwartz’s behavior. Remember that according to his former girlfriend, this guy was doing most of this insanity during the day and would go back to the Capitol afterward and cast his vote.
The next interview with the victim told us of Rep. Schwartz’s choice of drugs. The victim didn’t hold back on the details despite the discomfort that most of us would feel discussing such a sensitive subject with a stranger. Rep. Schwartz was like most sex addicts; after a ten year run he needed to boost things up a bit to get his thrill. He preferred that the woman was high on ecstasy and weed prior to sex and we were told that his drug of choice was a prescription medicine known as Adderall, a powerful amphetamine , to get high. Amphetamine’s street name is Speed.
Side effects of amphetamine are cardiovascular in nature such as an erratic heartbeat or it can cause anxiety. Sexual side effects in males may include erectile dysfunction, frequent erections, or prolonged erections. Other potential side effects include abdominal pain, acne, blurred vision, excessive grinding of the teeth, profuse sweating, dry mouth, loss of appetite, nausea, reduced seizure threshold, tics, and weight loss.
Amphetamine is a close relative of Methamphetamine but there are some differences according to the research we did online:
1. Methampetamine is more lipid soluble. this mean it will cross the blood-brain barrier more quickly and enter cells faster than amphetamine will (this is the same difference between heroin and morphine)
2. Methamphetamine is more stable than amphetamine. This means that it takes longer for the body to break it down (MAOs have a harder time acting upon it)
3. Methamphetamine binds to its targets a bit stronger as compared to amphetamine because more lipid soluble compounds of the same class tend to have stronger binding
4. Methamphetamine is metabolized into amphetamine. As you can guess this increases its strength a lot, because some of the Meth is converted into an active drug instead of being inactivated.
We were told that once Rep. Schwartz was high then the trysts would occur. Afterward she said that Rep. Schwartz would take Zanax, a powerful sedative, to come down off his high so he could return to work or return to his family. Xanax (Zanax) is a tranquilizer used in the short-term relief of symptoms of anxiety or the treatment of anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorder is marked by unrealistic worry or excessive fears and concerns.
The victim described how the Adderall would “amp up” Rep. Schwartz and how Rep. Schwartz was “infatuated” with *nal sex to the point where the victim questioned Rep. Schwarz’s sexuality and wondered if he was really a closeted homosexual. The preference continued on with three way partners.
The victim has offered to interview with the media and says that she is disgusted from the lack of response: “I just can’t believe nobody believes me or wants to expose him and make him be accountable for his actions, just because he has money or has been so called "trustworthy"!!”
The emotional toll continues on the victim and Rep. Colby Schwartz’s son and the victim is ready to drop anonymity: “I wish the damn news channel would just interview me, and I’d show my face too, because I am his damn victim, hell the emotional toll it took on me as well was suffering, but they all act like if they pretend it doesn’t happen, its no big deal! ugghh.. ..”
The victim went on to describe the horrible effect that meeting Rep. Colby Schwartz had on her life: And then of course because I’m just an average overweight girl, society will assume it’s not true and I’m just wishing, but what they don’t know is we met and started in my early 20's and I was still 135 and young and vulnerable after my divorce, and the way he "turned me out" caused me to turn down very dark roads and become self destructive sexually..;.. I know he’s just laughing it off since nobody is interested in my story.
Mixing methamphetaminesot amphetamines with powerful sedatives is dangerous. The street name for these types of drugs is uppers and downers and mixing the two drugs can cause death. We found medical professional online talking about mixing the two drugs:
Methamphetamines are psychostimulants — drugs that trigger the release of dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine in the brain. This cascade of neurotransmitters helps to induce intense feelings of euphoria, which is what brings many meth users back again and again. Like all stimulants, meth arouses the central nervous system, increasing heart rate, and elevating blood pressure and body temperature. But methamphetamines can be highly addictive, and with repeated use or high dosage can cause nausea, tremors, dizziness, hyperthermia (dangerously high body temperature), heart failure, and stroke. Because it's a stimulant, meth can also cause anxiety, which would explain why abusers would want to take an anti-anxiety drug to "level off" or "come down." Complicating matters, methamphetamines are often manufactured in underground labs without any quality control. Strength of dosage and inclusion of other drugs varies widely from batch to batch, even if the supplier remains the same, so it's hard to tell just how much of the drug is being taken.
Xanax, on the other hand, belongs to the family of benzodiazepines, a group of drugs that works to slow the central nervous system down. Benzodiazepines can also be habit-forming, especially when taken for a long time or in high doses. But quitting taking them cold-turkey can cause intense side effects, so if abusers have been taking it for a while or in large doses, they might want to check with their health care providers first about how to safely taper of their usage.
Taking benzodiazepines while on stimulants can be an incredibly risky habit. One drug is telling the body to speed up heart rate and elevate blood pressure, while the other is telling the body to do just the opposite. Under this kind of stress, the body can react in unpredictable and dramatic ways.
Now, to compound matters Rep. Colby Schwartz was also drinking heavily during the encounters. We found a good source online about mixing alcohol and Zanax:
“Xanax and alcohol are both Central Nervous System (CNS) depressants. (The central nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord.) They work by slowing down the brain, and subsequently, many other body systems. Xanax and alcohol both affect the crucial area of your brain called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is responsible for regulating heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, temperature, and many other vital functions. When Xanax and alcohol are taken together, the additive effects can lead to dangerously slowed breathing and heart rates.
While this holds true for all depressant drugs—Valium, Klonopin, Ambien, and Sonata—Xanax is by far the most dangerous when used in combination with alcohol because it is more fast-acting than the others.”
Taking alcohol with Methamphetamine was just as dangerous according to the same online source:
“Stimulant drugs such as cocaine, Ritalin, or meth can have detrimental effects on your body when combined with alcohol. In fact, mixing stimulants with alcohol is more dangerous than alcohol consumption alone because stimulants give users a false sense of sobriety. You might feel that you are not as drunk as you actually are and then drink beyond your physical limit. Or worse, stimulants can even hide the signs of an overdose. This delusion causes individuals to consume much more alcohol than normal—until it’s too late.”
So Representative Colby Schwartz was messing with some very lethal combinations of drugs and alcohol, most likely driving while impaired, and most likely casting votes as a legislator while under the influence of illegally supplied drugs. His alleged drug use also explains his reputation for being secretive and somewhat of a loner at the Capitol.
We are continuing to add to the ongoing saga of Representative Colby Schwartz’s bizarre second life of sexual and drug addictions and will update as the information comes in.
ElectBranantheBigot.Com Website Generating Controversy
The website had only been up a few days before it generated publicity including an article by the Oklahoman. Half political hit piece, half political inoculation, the article gave the web address while doing its best to trash the leader of the Sooner Tea Party, claiming that he “admitted” that the Sooner Tea Party had made the website. Admitted? Hell, our phone number is listed on the front page.
Then on Saturday the Oklahoman’s liberal editorial section took another slap at the website, again giving the web address while being hyper critical of the political tactics while attempting to minimize the damage to the Branan Corporation Commissioner campaign. Which tells you that they are very worried about Cliff Branan’s ugly words about constituents “tramping” through his office and “rattling” his secretary. Ironically there was a political cartoon bemoaning the loss of the Freedom to Speech by liberal groups just below the editorial.
And our favorite online source of political and social information, the Red Dirt Report, mentioned the new website in an article on undue influence by hidden campaign donors.
The article is critical of Senator Cliff Branan’s attack on a TV ad that is running against his bid for the Corporation Commission seat.
The website continues to climb in Google ranking, already it has hit the #6 spot for the search terms “Cliff Branan bigot” and the #4 slot for “Branan bigot”, with the Oklahoman stories or copies of the same story posted on other news sites leading the search results. A story about the website is currently in the #8 slot for the Google search “Cliff Branan”.
The website is generating email responses and one of them stood out:
“I sent the following email to Branan's office and called seeking an explanation for his vote on SB.906 which would eliminate the Electoral College and make the election of the President based on the popular vote giving all the power to the high population centers of the country.
"How could the "national popular vote" people convince the more sparsely populated red states to give away their voice in the Electoral College? Would you please explain your vote on SB-906? I cannot imagine a good reason to vote for this bill. Please enlighten me."
Of course I never heard back from him!”
The website is funded by the Oklahoma Tea Party PAC and will remain active after the primary election. Our intention is to maintain all of the websites for decades to come so that the negative information remains on the internet and the corrupt politicians find that their reputation is forever stained by their misdeeds.
Another item of interest is where Cliff Branan has his office for his commercial real estate company... At the Chesapeak Treasury building as confirmed by mutiple online searches. This man is running for the Corporation Commission to regulate the same people that he offices with. If that isn't corruption then I don't know what coruption is.
Two huge issues popped up this week, an unconstitutional funding mechanism and a tax increase on military families in Oklahoma.
First was a thirteen million dollar supplemental funding appropriation for the Department of Corrections that was signed into law. The problem was that while well intentioned, the legislatin is unconstitutional:
Article X, Section 23A states that: “Any surplus which has accrued or may hereafter accrue to the General Revenue Fund of the State of Oklahoma during any fiscal year shall be placed monthly in a sinking fund in the State Treasury to be used solely for the purpose of paying the principal and interest of the outstanding and unpaid bonded indebtedness of the State of Oklahoma.”
The money for this legislation comes from surplus funds carried over from last year which by our constitution are required to go into state debt reduction. We all remember last year’s state tax cut being thrown out due to unconstitutional legislation, well, if someone challenges this bill the Department of Corrections funding will be thrown out as well. The legislators know better but this is their way of appearing to be doing something without actually doing anything. “I tried.” They will say….
The second travesty was HB 3143 which we covered earlier this year in an article. The City of Lawton had pushed the issue to levy local taxes on military bases, claiming that the taxes were on the businesses, not on the military families that support the businesses. Of course when you tax a business they must pass the cost of that tax on to the customers so a sales tax increases costs regardless of who actually writes the check.
HB 3143 is a raw money grab by the city of Lawton and the other cities will want in on the new taxes too next year. The DOD contracts on the base are safe for now but the legislation allows the cities to negotiate increased taxes with the DOD on the next contract phase. The private vendors don’t have that protection so they will be forced to increases their prices to cover the additional expense of doing business.
HB 3143 passed the House 51 to 42. Below are the yes votes by the men and women that voted to increase taxes on active duty military families:
Armes Fourkiller McNiel Sanders
Banz Glenn McPeak Schwartz
Billy Grau Mulready Shelton
Blackwell Hall Nelson Sherrer
Brown Inman Newell Shoemake
Cannaday Jackson Ortega Thomsen
Condit Johnson Osborn Trebilcock
Coody Kirby Ownbey Virgin
