Obama winkingThis here’s right funny – they’ve nailed his character to the bone.  Was it that “If you like you doctor, you can keep your doctor” and that Obamacare would let everyone keep $2500 more of their own money? How can they be SO cynical of the former LightBringer? Emphasis mine, reformatted.

After Obama nixes agreement, groups say they want city ordinance

The Obama Presidential Center planned for Jackson Park could be a shot in the arm for the South Side, bringing jobs, economic development and other benefits. But a coalition of activists and residents want those promises put in writing — something the former president himself refused to do just this week.

Where’s the trust, guys?  After all, he was (and is again) an “activist” and an “organizer” just like you all – or is there no honor among thieves (so to speak)? You mean that phrase “Trust in God” isn’t quite sufficient (yeah, go to the link)?

Melania Trump

Image: CNN / Getty Images

In her address to the UN General Assembly:

“Show me the loving bonds between your families today and I will show you the patriotism and moral clarity of your nation tomorrow. Our choices on how we raise and educate our children in fact provide the blueprint for the next generation. If we do not advocate a love of country to our children and generations to come, then why would our children grow up to fight for their countries?”

-Melania Trump, First Lady of the US

It is here that she very much differentiates herself from the preceding First Lady. For Melania, it is the family that is the most important structure in Civil Society and not Government trying to be that penultimate force. Is this why Progressives continuously try to replace the nuclear family?

“But in the end, Meyers added, the New Hampshire DHHS – like the rest of the country this week – lies at the whim of Congressional forces.”

They never seem to learn the rather straight forward lesson of “with strings attached”, do they?  And the other one is “he who has the gold doesn’t have to hand it out, either”.  This is what happens when politicians, in never learning that it doesn’t matter to taxpayers WHICH level of government is reaching into their pockets, never seem to learn that in creating a local budget (in this case, the State of NH) that highly depends on a higher level of government’s money, you will get screwed in the end.  And politicians, especially the NH Republican ones, have put NH into this position – willingly.  In Pravda on the Merrimack comes this evergreen headline:

HHS head: GOP health bill could result in $820M N.H. Medicaid cut

New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Jeffrey Meyers predicted a sharp financial toll on the state’s Medicaid program if the federal Graham-Cassidy health care bill passes, and warned of funding shortages that could result from the bill’s block grant system.

Who could have seen this coming, eh?  Oh yeah, ME!  I didn’t have to be a Read the whole thing!

freedom_of_speechAntifa and their advocates have insisted that some speech is so offensive that violence is justified. This is nonsense because violence is never justified where peaceful speech is concerned, they are only looking for an excuse to silence ideas they oppose and have decided to frame everyone that disagrees with them as either Nazi’s or white supremacists.

Not every liberal is onboard with silencing speech they dislike. Peter Beinart at the Atlantic sounds as equally offended as I am.

dollarThe Democrat National Committee continues to reap a “windfall” from their ongoing Blame Russia™ and “People who don’t vote Democrat are White Supremacists” narratives as donors flock to write checks in support of …wait! It’s just the opposite.

The DNC raised just $4.4 million last month, the second lowest August fundraising figure for the party in the past decade. The party had less cash on hand at the end of the month than it did at the beginning, as its spending outpaced its fundraising by $44,575.

Democrats spending more than they take in?  You don’t say?

TariqShapiroWhiteSupremacist

Check out this guy calling Ben Shapiro, a Jew who wears a yarmulke all the time, a suspected white supremacist? (And look at the number of likes!!). So Tariq thinks,  Ben who “According to studies from the Anti-Defamation League, Shapiro received the most anti-Semitic harassment on Twitter during last year’s campaign season.” from white supremacists, is a suspected white supremacist. Good lord.

Why are so many people who claim to be on the left so freaking stupid? I mean, seriously. They play dress up in black, replicating fascist fashion, beating people up, destroying property and then, with a straight face, in serious self-righteous rage claim they are anti-fascist?

NH media blackoutA few days ago there was a rally in Washington DC. The Mother of All Rallies, billed as a pro-Trump event, attracted a lot of folks including a group from Black Lives Matter, which the organizer invited on stage as a show of good faith in Free Speech.

“So you guys know that the ‘Mother of All Rallies’ was to end the political violence,” Gunn began.

“It’s about freedom of speech. It’s about celebration. So what we’re going to do is something you’re not used to, and we’re going to give you two minutes of our platform to put your message out,” Gunn told the BLM activists.

You may not have heard this because no media in New Hampshire (that I can find) is reporting it.

Puerto Rico flagPuerto Rico just got nailed bad by hurricane Maria – and it pretty much tore up the place.

Yennifer Álvarez Jaimes, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló’s press secretary, told NBC News that all power across the island was knocked out.

“Once we’re able to go outside, we’re going to find our island destroyed,” Emergency Management Director Abner Gómez Cortés said at a news briefing. Rosselló imposed a 6 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew, citing flood warnings and the importance of keeping streets clear for repair and rescue teams. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz told MSNBC that the devastation in the capital was unlike any she had ever seen.

The San Juan that we knew yesterday is no longer there,” Yulín said, adding: “We’re looking at four to six months without electricity” in Puerto Rico, home to nearly 3.5 million people. Maria, the strongest storm to hit Puerto Rico since 1928, had maximum sustained winds of 155 mph when it made landfall as a Category 4 storm near the town of Yabucoa just after 6 a.m. ET, the National Hurricane Center said.

Stateside, we have folks that get all bent out of shape if the power’s down and inconvenienced for a day or so.  Sure, an Read the whole thing!

debt -generational debt that is

42.3 million Americans are paying back $1.33 trillion in federal student loan debt.

  • A staggering 49.8% of all respondents said they would give up their right to vote in the next two presidential elections in order to have their debt forgiven
  • 43.6% were willing to give up Uber or Lyft forever in exchange for debt forgiveness
  • 42.4% of respondents would also give up traveling outside of the country for 5 years, while
  • 27.0% said they would be willing to move in with their parents for 5 years
  • only 13.2% reported being willing to give up texting and any mobile messaging equivalent for the next year in exchange for having their debt forgiven
  • Only 8.2% of respondents chose to select none of the above and said they would rather keep paying off their student debt

Appreciation of other cultures is fine.  Multiculturalism exists to promote them over Western Liberalism (the Classic kind – the the “Liberals” like Nancy Pelosi).

Are some cultures better than others? Or are all cultures and their values equal? Bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza, who was born in India and moved to America, explains:

D’Souza points out that this hatred of the western culture is rooted in the teaching of “multiculturalism,” or the idea that all cultures are equally good.

“This thinking is the product of a doctrine widely taught in our schools,” says D’Souza. “It’s known as multiculturalism, the belief that all cultures are equal. Or to put it another way, no culture’s values, art, music, political system, or literature are better or worse than any other.”

However, D’Souza questioned multiculturalism’s validity, and backed it up with a couple stories

Sheikh Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa, head of the Islamic Jurisprudence Center in Clarksburg, Maryland, gave a lecture in Toronto, Canada in 2010, in which he said that Muslims could only live in the land of the infidels under certain circumstances, one of which was to do da’wa. “When the caliphate is established, you need to pack your bags and go home,” he said. In the lecture on the jurisprudence of interaction with non-Muslims, which was delivered at the Abu Huraira Center in Toronto and posted on YouTube in August 2010, Bengharsa stressed that historically, Islam had been spread by the sword and said that the purpose of Jihad is to establish the law of Allah and that while you can’t force a person to believe in Allah, “you can force him to live by the shari’a.”

“There was a time when in this area that we call Turkey, there were no Muslims, there was no Islam, right? Then people came…

In Turkey, in particular, it was not a result of merchants coming with da’wa. It was the result of Jihad. Muslims came…
People became Muslims as a result of the fact that Muslims came with the sword and established shari’a and as the result of the establishment of shari’a, many people found that there is a need to become Muslims in order to avoid strife.”

Hmm, strife? If one considers seeing your body when you head is not co-located with it, then perhaps that is a definition of “strife” that I’ve not come across.

UNH CampusA University of NH sorority is being investigated for using the N-word in a video posted online because if Kanye West can say it, you can’t sing it.

DURHAM — A University of New Hampshire sorority is under investigation after a video was posted on Facebook Tuesday showing Alpha Phi members singing the rap song “Gold Digger,” which includes the N-word.

UNH spokesman Erika Mantz said Wednesday that no disciplinary action against the sorority sisters has been taken, but the incident is under review. Read the whole thing!

SAU 55 RTKSAU 55 Superintendent Earl Metzler has once again proven that the unelected bureaucracy will always attract people who will do anything to make life difficult for the taxpayers that pay them.

For an historical record spend a few hours searching Donna Green’s Blog, but for our purposes today we need to look no further than the decision in Taylor v. SAU 55.

Your SAU went to the state’s Supreme Court simply because they did not want to forward one short email to Mr. Taylor, and instead insisted on charging him $7.49 for a thumb drive and requiring him to commute from his home in Durham to the Plaistow office to collect it.  Your money is no object at SAU 55.  For legal fees we have a bottomless ATM.  Neither is the public’s convenience at the forefront of the SAU’s administration.  (Please don’t think elected officials get treated any differently. I have a collection of thumb drives.)

Reach out to your state legislators and start asking them to correct this. And be sure to let us know if your SAU or local government imposes similar excessive charges for public information, which this ruling will undoubtedly encourage them to do. We will happily report your findings for posterity.

zyxel_600_mbps_powerline_1056772When the WiFi didn’t reach the corners of the house with enough oomph to handle a couple of online gamers I went looking for solutions. Several presented themselves. Run cable. Add a router or router booster. I could even suck up the pain and pay for more bandwidth. But the solution I settled on was a powerline adapter.

These devices plug into a standard outlet and use your house wiring to carry your internet signal.

Northwood logo
As a concerned taxpayer and 16 year resident of Northwood, the bus crisis has been a topic of concern.  Searching for more information, I submitted an RTN request. The SAU office and the documents I received were astonishing.  The Northwood bus crisis was self-inflicted, courtesy of the Northwood school board and superintendent Gadomski. We ended up in crisis because our bus company, Northwood Transportation, could no longer afford to service our community despite still having a year left on a 3-year contract.

August 2016 found NT short a driver and a bus run, which caused NT a loss of $43,000.  NT told the board and superintendent Gadomski this was a financial burden on NT as the company had fixed expenses.  The NT busing contract included a mid-day kindergarten run. When the board voted to implement all-day kindergarten (going against the voters of Northwood who voted against it four years in a row), it omitted the midday-run. NT submitted their letter ceasing service to Northwood School district the next day on April 21, 2017, citing the loss of the midday-run as the reason.

islam___coexist_by_elvis4-d8k4hpgFrom William Kilpatrick at Crisis Magazine.

Europe is currently in the process of submitting to Islam, and America also seems destined to eventually submit. If you have young children or grandchildren, it’s likely that they will have to adapt at some point to living in a Muslim-dominated society. It won’t necessarily be a Muslim-majority society because, as history testifies, Muslims don’t need a majority in order to successfully take control of non-Muslim societies.

Mark Steyn also has some brilliant commentary that includes this and more on losing the culture war with Islam. Both are worthy of attention
