So I retweeted something last Thursday about Planned Parenthood suggesting that teenage girls poop on their partners for sexual experimentation.   It was one of those Whiskey Tango Foxtrot moments that makes you laugh, but then snap!  They’re serious.

In the latest video, a Colorado counselor told the Live Action investigator (posing as a minor) that “sexual exploration is normal” – and went so far as to suggest defecating and urinating on men as an option.

PP gets a lot of taxpayer dollars so taxpayers might have some interest in how it is put to use.

Here’s my retweet.  I don’t add anything, just the retweet.

What followed was an amusing adventure into the mindless…tweeting…I don’t even know how to categorize this being.

Warning – Strong language, insults, vulgariy, prejudice, stereotyping, Christian Hate,  and general obnoxiousness…but sadly, nothing witty.

DGA NH has 1.8 million for NH Gov Race--, 98% of it from outside New HampshireIf you search “Maggie Hassan” and “25,000″ you will discover that the NHGOP has asked the NH AG’s office to determine if a $25,000.00 dollar campaign contribution to the governor from the local IBEW violates New Hampshire Campaign finance laws.

I think we should get an answer on that, and not because I think it should be illegal.  I just think the AG’s office should make a determination, and if the people or their legislature wants to burn off any fog then they should act within their delegated powers to do just that..  And no, I’m not looking for another faux campaign finance law like SB 120 that gives candidates and monied insiders a monopoly on paid speech near an election.

All that aside, there is a much larger problem that Governor Hassan and her Democrat party advocates need to address.  NH IBEW 2320 wants the guaranteed work if the program gets approves, and would stand to profit handsomely from it.

Did the IBEW just buy Hassan’s support for Norther pass (or at least the softening of her message) with a check for $25,000.00 dollars?  Voters should be questioning the optics and the ethics of any change in tone after that kind of pay-day.

Note: I’m not taking a position on Northern Pass, I’m questioning if the Governor is massaging hers.  Also, you have to wonder about the timing between the 25K story and this email I received about the IBEW president stepping down–which has not been confirmed, by the way.

The Halbig vs Burwell, where the IRS decided that ALL Obamacare Exchanges could issue tax credits / subsidies (as opposed to what the law actually said, which was that ONLY State built Exchanges, not Federal ones, could issue those credits / subsidies to lower Obamacare premiums).  This is HUGE!  From the Washington Examiner:

In a case with potential to scramble the Affordable Care Act, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that federal subsidies for health insurance were not properly designed.

If upheld by the Supreme Court, the ruling could limit subsidies on the federal healthcare.gov exchange currently used by 36 states.

Challengers had argued that the law only allows subsides on exchanges run by the states themselves. Supporters of the law argued that was essentially little more than a typo in the law.

More later…

A little birdie tweeted in my ear:

August 13th at Dover city hall in the council chamber there is going to be a presentation regarding the Congolese “refugees” coming to Dover.  As I understand it no questions will be allowed.  This whole thing was to be kept under the radar, but word got out.  The chamber has a limited capacity, but wouldn’t it be great if tons of people showed up and let the powers that be know that people are paying attention and are not happy.  Please spread the word far and wide.
“Bring the mob” of citizens wanting to know what their City Fathers are going to do with their hard earned tax monies….
“No questions will be allowed“; REALLY??  I have a problem when our elected officials decide that they do not have to be responsive to those that put them into office.  It is no longer a Representative Republic when our elected public servants decide they will be The Public Masters – holding themselves to be unaccountable in carrying out the peoples’ business.
The Bigger the Government, the smaller the citizen.
And nothing says “smaller the citizen” than being ignored…..or silenced

From Daniel Horowitz, a reminder of what a horrible mess Dodd-Frank is.  Remember, the “Frank” part was Barney Frank, the uber Leftist Congressman from MA!

Here are some of the worst aspects:

Too Big to Fail: - Title I of the bill created a new permanent bailout regime, the Financial Stability Oversight Council.  This institution would vitiate the bankruptcy process and allow the government to take over any entity that it deems vital to the rest of the economy.  In other words, it consummates “too big to fail” as a permanent policy, the very policy this bill was supposed to fix.

Volcker Rule – The Volcker rule ostensibly prohibits regular banks from investing their own money by engaging in bond trading.  It also prohibits banks from holding more than a 3% stake in private equity funds.  Just this part of the bill is 300 pages long!  It will take hundreds of new Keynesian jobs just to enforce, interpret, and comply with the rule.

CFPB – The bill created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFBP), which will limit the choices of consumers in financial markets, making it harder and more expensive to obtain credit.  This unaccountable agency will operate autonomously within the Federal Reserve and will not be subjected to congressional appropriations or oversight.  It is essentially the “death panel” of the financial sector, with control over bank accounts, mortgages, and student loans.

Given that the event was for and organized by Jane Cormier in her run to unseat the Republican Establishment’s choice in the primary for NH State Senate, Dave Boutin (who most unRepublican like voted FOR an increase in the gas tax and voted FOR enlarging NH State Government ever by voting for Medicaid Expansion).  Here she makes it quite clear that values matter, that Principles matter – not the Party.  Jane believes that our State is headed in the wrong direction and that by actually implementing the conservative and Liberty & Freedom agenda, it can be turned around:

Also speaking at the event was former US Senator Bob Smith (who is running against both Scott Brown and Jim Ruben in the 2014 Senatorial Primary).  He, too, believes that Conservative values as espoused in the Constitutions (US & NH) and the NH GOP Platform need to be implemented – that decades of ignoring them have brought our country to the peril that now faces it.  Plain speaking, willing to take questions from anyone and answering them directly (favorable or unfavorably), he certainly is the person that NH should be looking at:

After the Intro Ceremonies were completed, the first speaker of the afternoon took the mic: Andrew Hemingway.  A young man age-wise, he has been active in Conservative politics for years and is now running for the NH GOP nomination for NH Governor in a primary match up against the NH GOP Establishment wing’s Walt Havenstein. Take a listen to Andrew – we at GraniteGrok believe that he is the right person with the right ideas at the right time.  The NH GOP, for years, has said that it has to attract younger voters and younger candidates – and one has certainly arrived:

As I said here (“GrokSHOT!: “If we just make you all the same, you’ll all be happy”“), yesterday afternoon was one of those ubiquitous political home events that are now happening around NH – the State that knows how to do retail politics right.  Listen to them, look them in the eye, shake their hand (maybe), and ask the questions.  Go back, wash, rinse, and repeat; that old saw of “Dunno what I think of him, only seen’em three times so far!” hold true here in the Live Free or Die State.  And so, GraniteGrok went to the home of Michelle and Lance McManus who were gracious in opening up their home for a number of Conservative Republicans to make their pitches to a large crowd (for a home event) of activists.  Opening segment:

  • Welcoming words by Michelle McManus
  • Invocation by Father Christian Tudor
  • National Anthem by the duet of Jane Cormier & Carlos Martinez (training opera singers, this IS well worth your time to listen!)
  • Pledge of Allegiance by Marilinda Garcia

Granite State Future - Organizing the end of your property rights in NHScott had a great article last Thursday that ties the Sustainable futures/HUD/Regional Planning Commissions to the latest man-caused disaster (Man used loosely as I am referring to President Obama).

He points out how rules you know nothing about (nor would you or your elected officials ever be consulted on) might result in your town having to take in and sustain however many illegal immigrants the Feds tell you to take because you signed up for a Granite State Future.

The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.

pot-of-MoneyTom Steyer wants to buy the US Senate for the Democrat Party.  He has donated (so far) $18.2 million dollars in 2014 to outside spending groups to achieve that.  Outside spending groups are those evil third-party interlopers the Democrats are always telling you are buying up your elections.

Steyer’s is just getting started, and he is already well past the number two donor, Mayor Mikhail Bloomberg, who has already donated 8.7 Million to outside groups.  Combined they have given more to liberal third-party groups than the total contributions of the next six biggest donors.

Two really rich guys between them have funneled 27 million into third party groups and it is only July.

Maggie Fracking Hassan

Hey Environmentalists! Are You ‘Bakken’ Maggie “Fracking” Hassan?

We are right to assume that Democrats favor subsidies for green energy projects, redistribution schemes like the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), renewable energy standards that use government force to require power providers to buy more expensive wind and solar derived electricity to put it into the grid, because they supported, voted for, and defend these policies.

The majority of noise opposing coal, and the ongoing cacophony in opposition to new oil and gas extraction technologies which make those resources more abundant and less expensive–create jobs, growth and even tax revenue (like Hydraulic fracturing or fracking), come from Democrats and liberals.

New Hampshire’s Democrat Governor Maggie has always been on board or at the forefront of the latest green tax scheme or boondoggle.

How does that comport with this?

Unions - Proud Owners Of The Democrat Party

Unions – Proud Owners Of The Democrat Party

Bill O’Neil was last seen as both the President of the local 2320 Electrical workers union, and a Manchester, New Hampshire Democrat House rep., who won his seat in a special election.  But a few days ago I got an anonymous and unsolicited email that suggests he has had to step down after allegations of corruption.

Bill O’Neil, president of local 2320 IBEW stepped down recently from the union due to serious allegations. Involves backbilling the union for services not rendered. Alleged corruption. The facts will bear out.

Will the facts bear out?

Maybe now we’ll begin to find out…

This afternoon was spent at the McManus home event thrown for Jane Cormier who is running against the Establishment Republican Dave Boutin (who voted to move FORWARD! the twin Democrat agenda items of raising taxes (the gas tax) and making State Government MUCH bigger (Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion) by voting for both) for the NH State Senate Primary.  About 50 people were in attendance.  A number of candidates spoke but Marilinda Garcia  had the line of the day:

 “…but they divide us by gender, they divide us by race, divide us by socioeconomic status and demographics.  And they say the way to solve all our problems and make everybody happy is to mandate equality of outcome.  If we just make you all the same, you’ll all be happy.”

THAT is a succinct summary of the Progressive end goal – there will be no independence, there will be no differences, and there will no one better than anyone else.  Regardless of your God given talents (oh yeah, this is the Party that booed God at their last national Convention).  And YOU WILL BE HAPPY WITH WHAT WE HAVE DONE TO YOU TO MAKE YOU HAPPY!

Makes you wonder what the consequence of not being happy with that would be…

NH-GOP_logoIs there an enthusiasm gap in the Lambert for Congress campaign?  I asked this question back on July 7th when I posted a picture from the Amherst 4th of July parade contrasting the turnout for the two Republicans vying to challenge Ann Kuster.  Colonel Lambert’s showing was dismal by comparison to Marilinda Garcia’s.

This week our journey takes us to the Lambert campaign website where there is a very inviting splash screen with a ‘Wake up Washington Pledge.‘ The pledge runs a list of issues Col. Lambert supports–term limits, no pensions, no budget-no pay, no taxpayer funded mass mailings, and no pay raise for congress.  Given the accumulation (and abuse) of wealth, power, and privilege in DC, they are political stands that few in congress ever embrace once elected, but that as dog whistle populist issues could attract voters in the Republican base and independents who support them.  (The pledge can also a good way to build a database and email and mailing list for th campaign).

The Lambert campaign has had the splash screen up for at least five days.  It was released July 15th, 2014.  Today is the 20th…

Is the base attracted?

Want to be really scared? Imagine if Hugo Chavez was running the United States. Now imagine a friendly, down-to-earth professor, who can mold the Democrat grassroots in the palm of her hand, but would govern to the left of Obama!

You thought Hillary, AKA the Red Queen, would be dangerous as Obama’s successor? Hillary is a piker compared to this gal! We can call her Lieawatha, or Fauxahontas, all we like, but just watch this video and you’ll see “Big Chief Nutroots” on top form as she manages to conflate “We The People” with calls for equality of outcome.

Watch carefully, and pick wisely, my friends. It is, as Richard Viguerie says, “The Primaries, Stupid!” You cannot fight populist fire with half a Democrat as the GOP candidate – we must fight populist fire with conservative fire-breathers, otherwise, we WILL be the generation which lost America to tyranny!

Notable Quote – Doug Bandow

by Skip July 20, 2014

The problem is not just the money—roughly $100 billion a year for corporate welfare, for instance. Also disturbing is the message government is sending to all Americans. The way to rise and prosper, to expand one’s business and increase one’s income, is to seize control of the State to loot your neighbors. Gaining wealth by […]

And Obama and Progressives don’t believe Socialism is selfish?

by Skip July 20, 2014

And this is the system that Obama and the Progressives want us to “progress” towards? The game was simple enough. Each participant was asked to throw a die 40 times and record each roll on a piece of paper. A higher overall tally earned a bigger payoff. Before each roll, players had to commit themselves […]

Your average, so-called, “anti-gun-violence” liberal Democrat wants your town, city, or state, to have the same sort of gun laws they have in Chicago.  But they don’t want you to truly grasp what that means.  Every weekend there are reports the dozens of new shootings and mounting death toll in the gun-free land of Chicago.  […]

Brown Swings Both Ways On Abortion

Once more we turn to the Boston Globe for exposure of Brown’s unreliable positioning on key issues. In a 2012 article entitled Brown stresses prochoice stance as abortion foes offer backing,” The Globe demonstrates vividly how Brown tries to have it every which way on the issues, effectively standing for nothing.
