polling, pencil, checkboxRemember the NH Primary Election way back in September? I took a look back recently. WMUR had a poll released on August 30 that measured the candidates for governor. Here is the opening paragraph.

TWO WEEKS FROM PRIMARY AND NH VOTERS ARE STILL UNFAMILIAR WITH GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATES

 DURHAM, NH – In one of the most wide-open races for governor in recent history, most Granite State voters are unfamiliar with candidates of both parties heading into the September 13th primaries. 

 These findings are based on the latest WMUR Granite State Poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.  Read the whole thing!

Last night, GrokTV was on location at a reception for Jim Lawrence (R), candidate for NH CD2, hosted at Fulchino Vineyard in Hollis, NH. Here’s the raw video of Jim, introduced by Matt Mayberry:

Crown Tilted cartoonThis is just AWESOME!  We all know that the Left continues to assault our traditional cultural norms and will do so until there is nothing to “conserve”.  The biggest deal is “gender identity” and “gender fluidity” which continues their nihilism onslaught against absolute values by declaring anybody can call themselves pretty much anything they want as far as which sex they are (male, female, and pretty much every stupid pitstop along the way that they can think of – anything to blur any distinction between anything and anyone).  First relegated to Academia’s Ivory Tower, this movement, first started by the Feminist Critical Thinking, it is now pouring out at the rest of us like Ebola outbound from a ruptured infected cell.

Lately, we’ve seen college campuses starting the process of mandating that anyone can define what they are AND what the rest of us MUST call them with pronouns the battleground. (NYC, too, with HUGE fines if employers and other employees refuse to use the “proper” pronouns).  So, one enterprising lad by the name of Grant Strobl decided to go all Alinsky on the University of Michigan.  His choice of pronouns by which he must be called?

Gun_RightsKimberly’s post on Portsmouth Police Commissioner Joe Plaia reminded me of this at the Union Leader concerning the NH Senate upholding Gov Maggie “The Red” Hassan’s veto of NH Constitutional Carry:

Democratic Senate Minority Leader Jeff Woodburn said the legislation is a solution in search of a problem that doesn’t exist, and that New Hampshire police chiefs do not deny permits without a good reason.  “There have seldom been unreasonable denials of a (concealed carry) permit,” he said. “And when it does happen, it is brought to public light and dealt with.”

He doesn’t get out much, does he? Or, like a Progressive, thinks more highly than he ought of our “expert and non-partisan bureaucrats” which, if anything these last eight years, we have found to be non-expert and highly partisan. We’ve seen cases of pure malfeasance – go unpunished or swept under the rug.  And in the blather of Woodburn, even if the police chiefs do badly, he blithely dismisses the impact and gives the impression of “no blood, no foul; it will self-correct or be of little consequence.  “Not to worry about”!

It is clear that he certainly didn’t bother to do his due diligence before opening his yap. If he had, he would have found the story of a police chief doing EXACTLY what he says doesn’t happen (and I bet he doesn’t think voter fraud doesn’t happen either, bless his heart) to ‘Grok friend Michelle Lavell who had to spend thousands of dollars PROVING her innocence against a police chief who decided to deny her permit renewal because she refused to give any additional information to the chief beyond what the law required (emphasis mine):

During the presser, Chairman Michelle Levell spoke about her own personal story of abuse by her police chief who decided to change the rules of the pistol/revolver application. Levell was denied her renewal because the police department illegally change the requirements.

Dear Elliot Hospital:

Does your drug policy apply to your board members? In particular, does it apply to Representative Joe Lachance who served as a co-sponsor of Obamacare Medicaid Expansion (HB 1696). The Elliot Hospital is a direct beneficiary of this piece of legislation.

I am a candidate for United States Senate and will be thoroughly investigating this matter. Please consider this as a hold notice for all communications between Joe Lachance and all internal and third parties regarding Obamacare Medicaid expansion. I remind you of your general employment policy as per your website. Read the whole thing!

Yesterday a new, fearmongering ad appeared in New Hampshire social media that featuresPortsmouth Police Commissioner Joe Plaia. The ad was created by Independence USA PAC, an out-of-state PAC run by New York City billionaire and gun control addict, Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg has been spending millions of dollars to push gun control and Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire during this election and chose a police commissioner who isn’t exactly honest.

cloud_server_webNot long ago Secretary of State John Kerry told us that Air conditioning was a bigger threat to the world than ISIS.

I’m guessing Idiot Kerry failed to confer with Idiot Gore before making this claim.

You see, Idiot Gore’s “invention” (the Internet) requires computers and servers (wiping cloth sold separately) that cannot function unless they are kept cool. The only way to do that is with devices called Air conditioners. Without air conditioners, we’d all be denied our right to internet access. That’s a right now, isn’t it?

Maybe they plan to sell indulgences.

I try hard not to be a conspiracy hound (although a couple of our Progressive commenters, bless their hearts, keep rolling rocks on ‘Grok grounds so that the phrase “looking under rocks to find a conspiracy” could be used) so a lot of times I’ll pass on posting something up simply because, well, “first info” isn’t always right. Or the second.  Sure, it means that sometimes I’m not “first” and it gets to be too late to bother.  So I don’t travel over to Info Wars but the when it has Obama’s words from his latest UN speech?  Well then, the title: VIDEO: OBAMA THINKS US SOVEREIGNTY OVERRATED, SHOULD CEDE FREEDOMS TO UN (emphasis mine):

And we can only realize the promise of this institution’s founding — to replace the ravages of war with cooperation — if powerful nations like my own accept constraints. Sometimes I’m criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions. But I am convinced that in the long run, giving up some freedom of action — not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests, but binding ourselves to international rules over the long term — enhances our security. And I think that’s not just true for us.

I read that and immediately thought of Ol Ben:

Here’s what I left as a comment:

This is one of the really big reasons many on the Right sneer at environmentalists – EVERY problem seems to require getting Government involved to achieve their wants. Make it bigger (hardly ever better) and more intrusive in making the rest of us hew to your idea of what is right.

How about this – how about petitioning the COMPANIES and the growers instead? If it is that great of an idea, wouldn’t it be logical to do that FIRST instead of running to Daddy Govt to spank everyone else?

And even better – you see a problem in the marketplace? Don’t like what is being done? Put your money and time where your mouth is and fill that perceived “void” (in this case, the packaging you want but aren’t getting) in the marketplace by starting your own company and just out-compete everyone else. Why not, if there are just so many darn people who are “demanding” what you want – by your own words, you should be a resounding success (and sincerely, more power to you for having done so).

But remember this – that will be much much harder than, you know, bitching about it some regulators and annoying the rest of us that will have seen yet a choice disappear from our lives because “you don’t need that“.

“You don’t need that” – the tell of Progressives and the intent to use the force of Government to enforce it.  The post I left it at?

It’s official, measles has been eliminated from the Americas. “More than 50 years since a vaccine became available, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has officially declared measles eliminated from the Americas – not just the US, but the land mass stretching from Canada to Chile, and all the countries in between. It’s the first region in the world to have rid itself of all local cases of the viral disease, and a pretty huge deal for public health.”

This is a big deal – nice news for a change.  But it is the FIRST part of the post at Instapundit that ought to have attention paid to it very closely:

NOW WE JUST HAVE TO AVOID IMPORTING MORE

Frankly, given the track record of the last two Administrations with an essentially open Southern border policy and the resulting “foreign” diseases that have come into the country that we either haven’t seen before or eradicated years ago, I’d like to be ecstatic over this but I’m sure that the sentiment expressed in that last quote is just “dust in the wind”; they’ll allow it back in not directly but by Govt’s push on doing nothing to protect our borders.  After all, part of Ellis Island’s mandate was to quarantine those that had communicable diseases…take it from there.

Because Obama was as guilty as she was!

Watch:

Obama communicated with Wobbles over her unclassified system using a pseudonym according to documents made public by the FBI last Friday. For a detail explanation, see former prosecutor Andy McCarthy’s report.

But, hey, forget that. Let’s talk about fat chics.

Today there was a series of votes to override some of Governor Maggie Hassan’s ridiculous vetoes against legislation passed by both the New Hampshire House and Senate. Senate Bill 336, a bill that would end abuse of New Hampshire citizens by police chiefs and other governing authorities over pistol/revolver licensing, was one of them. Read the whole thing!

judge-gavelBack in 2014, Democrat New Hampshire House Rep. Timmy Horrigan sponsored a change to election law that would make it illegal to share a picture of your completed ballot online. It passed 156 to 121 (135 Democrats and 21 Republicans favored the change), and Democrat Governor Maggie Hassan Signed it into law.

The First Circuit Court of Appeals just threw it out. Verdict? Unconstitutional violation of the first amendment right to free speech.

If Democrats Really Wanted to Get ‘Money Out of Politics’ They’d Tax It

by Steve MacDonald September 29, 2016

If Democrats REALLY wanted to get money out of politics, they’d tax it. I don’t know, let’s say 90%. Unions, candidates, so-called non-profits, anyone spending money to advocate for or against a candidate, or issue or measure, directly, indirectly, via lawyers or lobbyists, etc., etc. shall pay the tax on those expenditures. If 90% is […]
