Prison-Shower-SoapAbout that arrest of Carl Gibson here in NH by the NH AG for violating NH Election Law 666.6 (I LOVE that by the way).

Carl Robert “Homer” Gibson is a media hound. He loves being arrested.

I have a bio some admirer put together.

Here is a paragraph from the bio on to which he can add the official NH arrest.

If New Hampshire is to continue relying so heavily on businesses for state revenue, they need to make the business climate more inviting in the state.

new-hampshire-2-600x397

New Hampshire, because it has neither a sales tax or income tax, relies heavily on business owners to generate revenue for the state. Given that model, you would expect legislators and regulators to pass or defend policies that make the Granite State a top-tier candidate for start-ups and expansions. Unfortunately, you would also be wrong.

26 Summit St ConcordCarl Robert “Homer” Gibson says he is a resident at 26 Summit Street in Concord, NH. At least when he was arrested for voter suppression last Thursday that was the address he gave the NH AG’s Office.

But when you look up that address, they say this is who resides at 26 Summit St Concord.

Ed Naile joins us to talk about the arrest and unlikely prosecution of vote suppressor Carl Robert Gibson.  We get into some background on Gibson. Known associates. How prisoners in NH (unlike college students in NH) cannot vote from their “current residence.” Why expecting NH to do anything meaningful with these charges is likely folly, and what has is, or should be done about that. (Part I of II)

UNITED STATES v. STEVENS April 2010

Since its enactment, the First Amendment has permitted restrictions on a few historic categories of speech–including obscenity, defamation, fraud, incitement, and speech integral to criminal conduct–that “have never been thought to raise any Constitutional problem,” Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, 315 U. S. 568, 572.

…But the First Amendment’s free speech guarantee does not extend only to categories of speech that survive an ad hoc balancing of relative social costs and benefits. The Amendment itself reflects a judgment by the American people that the benefits of its restrictions on the Government outweigh the costs. New York v. Ferber, 458 U. S. 747, distinguished. Pp. 5-9.

And Thank You Senator Paul.

(Hot Air) Rushing to beat a deadline, the Senate instead beat itself into paralysis over the Patriot Act. In an overnight session that ended up producing nothing but frustration, the upper chamber rejected the House’s reform bill for NSA surveillance, and then failed to move any extension for the existing program. The Department of Justice warned that the NSA will start shutting down its programs immediately.

Yes, we conservatives detest the mainstream media, and why not? At best, when it’s not actively libeling us, it merely condescends to us, treating normal Americans not as the people who built and defended the very country these parasites feed off of, but as some sort of weird mutation infesting the tiny portion of the country that isn’t New York City, Washington, Los Angeles or San Francisco.”

Handcuffed SuspectAccording to news reports, Democrat activist and revolutionary, Carl SEIU Occupy-wherever “Homer” Gibson is to be arraigned June 22, 2015 at the Sixth District Court in Concord for “Voter Suppression” a Class B Felony and a misdemeanor charge of distributing false documents. (He posed as 19 year old Republican candidate Yvonne Dean-Bailey.)

So the NH AG is going to take action against one of hundreds of people just like “Homer” who show up in NH and cause political havoc and steal NH votes.

Good!

Now Wisconsin can prosecute Carl Robert Gibson for falsely registering to vote in Madison so he could vote in a State Supreme court race there.

Birth-Control-Abortion-600x300Yesterday after Senator Kelly Ayotte announced a new piece of legislation that would allow birth control to be sold over the counter (OTC), the New Hampshire Democrats and a slew of other far left wing extremists responded by claiming the bill would somehow decrease access to birth control for women. Unfortunately for Democrats, many organizations have long touted OTC birth control as have voters. Read the whole thing!

Carl Gibson I dont always

Carl Gibson I don’t always have too many beers before three in the afternoon but when I do…

Today the Democrat accused of sending the email hoax a few days before the special Rockingham District 32 election has been arrested for voter suppression. If you recall, Carl Gibson was doing social media for Maureen Mann’s campaign. A few days before the election an email was sent to specific press that claimed to be from Mann’s opponent Yvonne Dean-Bailey claiming she was dropping out of the race. Read the whole thing!

Is it because she’s just been a creature of Washington so long and it’s so deeply engrained in her that she just always thinks she’s in Washington or are there a few mental pistons misfiring?   Is she even mentally fit for the office she’s running for?  Something to keep an eye on.  She did suffer from that concussion last year that had people speculating on the seriousness of her brain injury.

So. is she just a creature of Washington and that’s where her mind constantly is? Or is her mind going to the extent that she can’t even say where she physically is? Some candidate.

The NH AG has arrested Carl Gibson for Vote Suppression.

(Patch) “Mr. Gibson has been charged with voter suppression for knowingly attempting to induce voters to refrain from voting in this past Tuesday’s special election for state representative in Rockingham District 32,” according to a statement by Stephen LaBonte, the assistant attorney general.

Voter suppression is a Class B felony, according to LaBonte. He is scheduled to be arraigned on June 22, at the 6th Circuit Court in Concord, at 8:15 a.m.

birthcontrolYesterday Senator Kelly Ayotte announced a new bill that she and Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) are introducing that will “help increase access to safe and effective contraceptives.” The bill is called “The Allowing Greater Access to Safe and Effective Contraception Act” and part of the intention is to allow drug companies to more easily and readily get birth control that is widely used into the Over-the-Counter (OTC) market rather than only available by prescription.

When Courting opinion in the Free Speech Debate….

Quoting professors about law is particularly risky, if your aim is an accurate and informative discussion of free speech law. If you call a physics professor and ask them what will happen if you drop your pencil, and why, he or she will say “it will fall, because of gravity.” There is a relatively low chance that the professor will tell you “well, maybe nothing will happen” because he or she harbors the belief that the current gravitic regime is unfair and otherwise problematical. But when you call a professor of law, or political science, or journalism, and ask them a question about whether some controversial speech is protected by the First Amendment, there is an unacceptably high probability that you will get a quote expressing what the professor thinks the law ought to be. Sometimes the professor will flag a statement as an argumentative one, sometimes not. Moreover, some professors . . . . how can one put this delicately? Some law professors’ views on how a court is likely to rule on an issue are untainted by exposure to actual courts.

Don’t Blame Maggie, Blame AG Joe Foster

by Steve MacDonald May 22, 2015

Drew Cline has an editorial in today’s Union Leader in which he “sets the record straight” regarding Maggie Hassan’s Union donation kerfuffle. With calls for resignation over campaign finance violations in the news again of late, the suggestion is that Hassan should resign, too. They misremember the Hassan violation. Speaking for myself, I never suggested […]

Mrs. Chatsworth Osborne, Sr.

by Susan Olsen May 22, 2015

It appears the Carsey Institute, founded by that darling Cynthia “Mil” Duncan – spousal unit of a wealthy white gentleman who agrees that poor children should stay in their zip codes – and “seeded” with $7.5 million by the fabulous Marcy Carsey, has stumbled upon the fact that children of less economically well-endowed parents rarely […]

The Republican and Democrat hypocrisy over Frank Guinta’s FEC issue

by Kimberly Morin May 21, 2015

If you live in New Hampshire and breathe air, you probably have heard about Representative Frank Guinta’s FEC issues. They have been ongoing for the past 5 years and the FEC just decided this week that Guinta violated their laws and will have to pay back the money he put into his campaign and pay […]

Planned Politicianhood

by Susan Olsen May 21, 2015

Was RNC Committeeman Steve Duprey about to accidentally “abort” GOP candidates from debates? After admitting he “accidentally” attended a Planned Parenthood fundraising event, it seems his idea of cutting things short may, in fact, be instinctive: “I think there’s consensus to cap it [the number of candidates] between nine and 12.” But is Mr. Duprey […]

Democrat Governor Maggie Hassan took illegal campaign money in 2012 and in 2014 (see also here) and kept it until the NH AG was asked to step in and make a ruling… …not Democrats, at least, and certainly not Democrat leadership. (In fact, I think they defended her…in a presidential election year.) Original Image Credit: […]

Notable Quote – Kurt Schlichter

by Susan Olsen May 21, 2015

“No, members of the mainstream media are presumptively hacks, and the pain and misery they endure as their organizations convulse and die should inspire laughter and joy. Sure, there are honest reporters out there, but that’s only a fluke of statistics. There have to be some, if only because of the random vagaries of chance. […]
