Maggs Hassan signed the Boondoggle bill this week, establishing a culture of taxpayer backed greed amongst the elected class–and anyone looking for a few bucks to tie a boon to a doggle. So Kimberly Morin joins us to discuss this new nail in the coffin of the New Hampshire economy.  We also visit the lousy NH job situation, yes! lousy despite the 3.8% unemployment rate, and our declining economic fortunes.

POLL: 71% of NH Voters oppose current pistol license laws that allow state-sanctioned discrimination
Yesterday
the Women’s Defense League of New Hampshire (The League) released poll results that clearly show Granite Staters are not happy with the current pistol license law. Susan Olsen, Legislative Director for The League spoke at a press conference in the Legislative Office Building yesterday and explained the original intent of the law – discrimination. Former State Representative Emily Sandblade spoke about the findings in the poll and explained the methodology. Read the whole thing!

For the secular leftist, the end state is social and necessarily political. It is all about getting everybody else on board and herding them into his imagined utopia. There are so many “problematic” aspects of life that need to be reengineered, so many vast social systems that need to be overthrown and replaced. But the rest of us are all screwing it up, all the time, through our greed, our denial, our apathy, our refusal to listen to him banging on about his tired socialist ideology.

For the Christian, the ideal end state is safely in the next world and therefore is never in doubt. For the individualist, it’s in his own life, and it’s mostly under his direct control. For the leftist, however, it is all outside his control. It requires other people, a lot of other people, and those SOBs usually refuse to cooperate. Talk about rage-inducing.

If the whole focus of your life is on getting everybody else to agree with you on every detail of your politics and adopt your plans for a perfect society, then you’re setting yourself up to be at war with most of the human race most of the time.

Which means an awful lot for the Angry Left to get angry about.

Watch this then go figure out a) how much the State University system is wasting while they cry about public support and tuition rate, and b) how much of that $11 million in additional dollars the State Senate just added to the UNH budget could go to this kind of nonsense.

TNH Democrats fleece taxpayers againhe New Hampshire State Senate has proposed language to lower the Business Enterprise Tax and the Business profits Tax beginning in 2017.  The proposed change would reduce the BPT by 0.4% and the BET by 0.075% (in total) by the end of 2019, but can we even call this “flirting” with tax reform?

Don’t get me wrong.  I think any incremental shift in business taxes necessary but I don’t think this ‘pinch’ is sending anyone a message, unless it is a message in a bottle tossed into the ocean.

Despite that, at least one Democrat in the New Hampshire Senate (speaking for all I suspect because none of them like tax cuts of any kind) has taken issue with this tiny proposed reduction in statutory confiscation from New Hampshire’s job creators.

Cooperative” federalism is supposed to come from Congress and federal statutes. However, practically nothing comes from Congress these days. The legislature is notoriously divided. It lacks the financial resources to rope recalcitrant states in new federalism bargains (witness the ACA), and it cannot even revisit the bargains embedded in old statutes (such as education programs or the Clean Air Act). Thus, to make federal programs “work” under current conditions, agencies rewrite statutes, issue expansive waivers, and negotiate deals with individual states on a one-off basis. That is how the ACA is being “administered.” That is how Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell is trying to expand Medicaid. That is how No Child Left Behind is run. And that is how Environmental Protection Agency is trying to impose its Clean Power Plan: “stakeholder meetings” and assurances of regulatory forbearance for cooperating states; unveiled threats against holdout states. This brand of federalism knows neither statutory compliance nor even administrative regularity. It is executive federalism.

. . . .  Further along that path lies the fate of Argentina, which practices an advanced form of executive federalism: corrupt, ruinous, unstable.” – Michael Greve

Awaiting arraignment at 8:30 AM, June 22, in Concord District Court, New Hampshire/Wisconsin voter Carl Robert Gibson is probably having a laugh at the expense of all of us lesser beings.

Carl Robert Gibson is a smart guy. He gets away with all kinds of what the Concord Monitor call “pranks”.

No “professional” news organization in New Hampshire will touch this story. It goes deep into left wing politics and how NH elections really work.

Carl Robert Gibson was brought here in 2012 to take on NH Congressman Frank Guinta as one of the million dollar, for profit, out of state political action committee CREDO PAC’s fellow travelers, Gibson has a past history in dirty tricks. He has been trained by the best. Read the whole thing!

Today’s Union Leader, from James A. Kimble

BRENTWOOD — A judge declared a mistrial for an ex-Seabrook police officer accused of assaulting a 19-yearold drunken driving suspect while on duty.

The jury in the Mark Richardson trial told Judge N. William Delker at least twice on Tuesday that they were deadlocked on reaching a verdict before they were released from duty. “There was more than a lone holdout. I don’t think we ever got a number,” defense lawyer Peter Perroni said late Tuesday.

Richardson, 40, faced a single count of simple assault by an on-duty law enforcement officer for slamming Michael Bergeron into a cement wall at the Seabrook police station on Nov. 11, 2009.

Not Guilty? You can watch the video and decide for yourself.

Obama Immigration AmnestyObama illegal Immigrant GOTV Amnesty still on hold.

Although Obama argued lack of action by Congress forced him to make sweeping changes on his own, Republicans blasted the plan as an executive overreach. Twenty-six states have sued to stop it, and a federal judge based in Texas issued a preliminary injunction against it in February.

The administration is appealing that injunction and had asked a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to let the program proceed pending an argument on the merits, tentatively set for July.

But, in refusing to stay the Texas judge’s injunction, 5th Circuit judges Jerry Smith and Jennifer Walker Elrod said that the federal government lawyers are unlikely to succeed on the merits of the appeal. Judge Stephen Higginson disagreed in a lengthy dissent.

Two of the three judges on the 5th were nominated by Republicanpresidents.  The dissenting judge was appointed by Obama.

A game called 'slap Hillary?' Uhhh, what's the name of that web site again?"

File this under “oh, look a Clinton hiding money.”

Bill has a private company.  It’s called WJC, LLC.  It’s how he ‘manages” his consulting services.  And good for him.  But it has no employees, does not need to be disclosed by Hillary (him, just being the spouse and all), and its purpose is not disclosed in any corporate filings anywhere that anyone has found…yet.

I found this to be very amusing.

Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman of Ogilvy & Mather (one of the biggest marketing/advertising agencies in the world), makes the assertion that a change in perceived value can be just as satisfying as what we consider “real” value.

poll taxThere is always radio silence when it comes to exposing voter fraud – from the progressive side. They want to steal elections in secret and not take credit.

I can write articles with names, places, details, facts – all the stuff progressives never seem to have in their diatribes and fantasy stories of social justice and equal rights, and they seem to drift away from our comments section. Crickets make more sense than progressives defending voter fraud. They certainly make more noise.

I have a social justice issue in regards to elections that is really a poll tax imposed by liberals and Democrats all over the US.

Women's Defense League of NH banner

The Women’s Defense League of New Hampshire (WDL or ‘The League’) is asking Governor Hassan to end state sanctioned discrimination in New Hampshire and to allow SB116 to become law.

The League is holding a press conference in Concord today (in just a few minutes) in support of SB116 which would make the concealed carry pistol-revolver license in New Hampshire optional.  The bill has passed both the House and Senate and awaits the signature of Governor Maggie Hassan.

I’ve included below links and embeds to all of the press Conference/ Press release materials. The press insert (the history and discriminatory purpose of allowing government officials to determine who is suitable).  The complete results of a WDL New Hampshire Pistol License Survey of 833 Registered New Hampshire Voters.  And the formal WDL Press release.

I have been allowed to publish this before any other press or media has access so you may have an opportunity here to act upon it before other media outlets. Read the whole thing!

New Hampshire appears, on the surface, to have done a decent job of reducing dropout rates.  But if you look at how the state has meddled with reported graduation rates, it becomes a lot harder to determine what the state has actually achieved.

“11-Year-Old Boy Holds Salute For Over An Hour On Normandy Beach And Then Something Amazing Happens” (link) D-Day – 2014

People started to gather, slowly, one by one more and more people came to witness this incredible act of patriotism. The boy never broke his stance. Then came the news crews, NBC Nightly News showed up, soldiers showed up to give thanks, Veterans stopped to salute him and kids taunted him, trying to break his focus…but it never broke.

And then…at the 5 minute mark in the video…something powerful happens…

Carl Gibson and the Rotten Democrat FruitI apologize for the click-bait tease of a headline but I have credible information that Carl Gibson never departed the service of Maureen Mann in her loss to Yvonne Dean-Bailey in the Rockingham 32 special election.

We are also developing new leads tied to 26 Summit Street Concord, N.H., the address given by Mr. Gibson.  There is quite a bit of rotten fruit left to pick in the coming days and weeks.

Stay tuned.

Social Justice is many things to many people.  It is whatever anyone wants it to be but violence is its foundation.   The progressive utopia can only be born out of the fire of change. It only comes from war, civil, cultural.  You are either part of the movement or its enemy; those who organize for action or those who are subdued by it.

Law is a barrier to change.  Law is conservative, fixed, predictable.  Progressivisim, Social Justice, is about organizing, motion, change.

The riots in Ferguson.  The riots in Baltimore.  The violence in Baltimore over the weekend.  Chicago as a matter of policy and most major Democrat run urban area.  This is what they want for everyone.  This is the ‘change you can believe in.’ This is a snapshot of the progressive utopia; the destruction of all institutions so that a paradise managed by “men” can emerge from the ashes.  But the dirty little secret is “nothing ever emerges.”

The Buffer Zone Repeal was aborted so an unnecessary lawsuit may now move forward – at your expense. Two Republican state Senators, Nancy Stiles (a co-sponsor of the original law) and Jerry Little, sided with every Democrat in the chamber to lock the vote. Republican state Sen. Jeb Bradley voted for the repeal bill, but then quickly […]

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, 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 […]
