Remember, MIT trained John Sununu the Elder said:

I have no feeling for the electorate anymore. It is not responding the way it used to. Their priorities are so different that if I tried to analyze it I’d be making it up.

The last couple of years, a rebellion has been brewing, mostly smoking, irritated, frowning – or as Conservative Treehouse has said “Cold anger”.  They are tired of being taken for granted, sick of the browbeatings from their “betters”, and tired of votes being demanded (and then, at least here in NH, their Principles disregarded by the NH GOP).

CNBC’s “Morning” Joe Scarborough lays it out cleanly as to why the base trusts not the Establishment and is, in effect, open rebellion (emphasis mine):

So let me try to answer your question. The people that Ted Cruz appeals to are the conservatives that have been betrayed by the Washington establishment for 30 years, by Republican candidates that run for office saying they’re going to balance the budget and lie. Republican candidates that run and say they’re going to overturn Obamacare and lie. Republican candidates who say vote for me and I’m going to have a humble foreign policy and lie.

Yeah, we’re in the BEST of Political Correctness (hint: that’s a hint) hands.  Our Dept. of Homeland Security is on the top of their game watching inside our borders (yeah, that’s another sad joke).  Here’s who they think are our greatest threats:

Yup, look at them all.  Look hard.  Now, let’s play “where’s Waldo?”

Just cool:

“Sacek was hired by Elevation Digital Media in collaboration with Arrow Electronics to design and build this autonomous paper airplane factory, which is controlled by multiple Lego Mindstorms intelligent bricks, and quite a bit of custom code. It’s not the first Lego paper airplane machine we’ve seen, but Sacek’s design looks far more streamlined and reliable.”

The old politician saw is: “The most dangerous place for you in Washington – is between (fill in name of pol) and a camera.” We’ll coin a government saw: “The most dangerous place for you anywhere on the planet – is government between you and the free market.”

Any and every tax, law and regulation – is government placing itself between you and the free market. And, conversely, between the free market and you. And, of course, it makes the market less free. It’s inherent. The bigger the tax – the less money you have for the market, and the less money marketeers have to operate. The bigger the laws and regulations – the less freedom we and the marketeers have to maneuver.

Think of government as a straight jacket. The bigger government is – the tighter are the arms constricting the marketplace.

-Seton Motley (RedState)

Just a longer way of saying what I have been saying for years:

The Bigger the Government, the smaller the citizen

New Hampshire - Welcome, now go home.

Welcome to New Hampshire…

Well, a number of Republicans in the NH House decided to join the Democrat Party in enlarging State Government, put more people (especially formerly independent single working males) on the public dole, and are making the rest of us pay for it – Steve has the Republican list of those that decided that the Party Platform of smaller government, lower taxes is just so much nonsense – it’s not even a “guide” anymore.

Sidenote: is ANYONE else getting ticked off at the Republican politicians like NH State Rep Joe LaChance and NH State Senators Jeb Bradley & Chuck Morse saying they are “protecting” NH taxpayers while screwing those of us who are also FEDERAL taxpayers – because now WE will have less to spend on OUR families just for them to pass legislation that they hope will appeal to DEMOCRAT voters to keep their butts in their political seats?

But people are watching – and thinking down the road.  For the Governorship – Republican primary.  And someone is not going to be happy with the comment (emphasis mine):

HB1368 vote - nay on ITL

Nay means they tried to save the bill!

Democrat Katherine Rogers wrote a bill to require anyone in possession of a firearm within NH to have liability insurance that does not exist in any state for each and every weapon. This is a gun ban bill, plain and simple.

It came out of legislative committee inexpedient to legislate by a vote of 20-1.

When it was time for a floor vote, 22 House Democrats voted against killing it (Nay to save this legislation from its timely demise). They tried to save the de facto gun ban bill. You’ll recognize a few names, like Timmy Horrigan, Cynthia Chase, and (of course) Katherine Rogers.

For my full treatment on this awful piece of legislation look here.

James O'Keefe - Richard Head

James O’Keefe and NH Asst. AG Richard head

The last time Project Veritas was in NH it was 2012 and they were going polling place to polling place stating the name of a deceased voter to ballot clerks who would look up the name, ask if the address was correct and attempt to hand the Project Veritas journalist a ballot. That hit a nerve with NH voters.

Naturally, the NH AG went after James O’Keefe of Project Veritas. In the end, Richard Head of the NH AG’s Office begged off that stupid idea. James remained a free man. But some other interesting things occurred during that 2012 investigation. Some far left organizations petitioned the NH AG to prosecute James O’Keefe. The Daily Kos was one of those entities.

I-dont-always-vote-in-NH

So the NH AG’s office plans to probe for possible election law violations after the release of the most recent Project Veritas video

WMUR | CONCORD, N.H. —The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has decided to begin an investigation of possible violation of a state law governing voting-related conduct, depicted in a video made public this week by a conservative activist group.

The article goes on to reference state law regarding domicile and eligibility but the concern appears to be with regard to election officials and how they responded to questions about domicile and eligibility. GO watch the video and they gape in awe at how your state government fails to protect your vote by letting anyone, ANYONE, show up and erase it just by claiming to live in your town on election day.

I think you know where we stand. If you’re not sure search Vote Fraud, Voter Fraud, Domicile…you’ll figure it out.

Kelly-Ayotte-John-McCain

Kelly Ayotte has announced her support for ‘The People’s Pledge’ by asking Governor Hassan to sign on. If you forgot what that is, Jeanne Shaheen tried to foist in on Scott Brown in the 2014 US Senate race after he lost to Liz Warren when they both signed on in 2012.

If an independent third party group spends money on TV, radio, or online supporting a candidate, that candidate has agreed to pay 50% of the cost of airing that ad to a charity of the other candidate’s choice.

How nice of Senator Ayotte to toe another progressive narrative for them.

Concord tax assault

By a vote of 207 to 136 the NH House advanced Obama Care Medicaid Expansion legislation that will inevitably lead to a broad-based income or sales tax in the Granite State. We’ve talked about the expansion, the effects, consequences, and costs already, so let’s get down to the votes.

Who, in the NH House, just voted to saddle you with an unnecessary and unsustainable welfare-state expansion–complete with all the Federal strings–that will inevitably lead to a sales or income tax ?

Recorded at Alpine Grove, where the Cruz post-primary party was held. Apologies for the poor focus during the speech – the lighting fooled the autofocus. What you can see is a good crowd, and lots of press – the main press platform at the rear overflowed, there were two rows of tables for reporters, and a separate table at the side where NPR set up.
There was a lot of excitement, and Ted’s speech was very well received, indeed, the room became raucous during his key lines:

A few days before Gov. Christie was driven out of the race by New Hampshire voters we had a conversation with Alex Roubian from the New Jersey Second Amendment Society about how the N.J. Governor had lied on national television about his record on gun rights. Hear what Alex had to say about the Governor and the state of self-defense rights in the Garden State.

If you thnk lrtting proplr from out of state Vote in NH if OK youre Gonna have a bad time

Some of you may have seen the Project Veritas video released this morning showing their investigator journalists, who were posing as out-of-state campaign workers, being coached and offered information on how to vote illegally in NH.

Remember, this is a Federal Election, not a town meeting or state election. Federal law prohibits interstate voting – no matter what NH election officials, the NH AG, or Secretary of State say.

Pay close attention to the phrase “duly qualified resident.” It is the same requirement imposed by every significant domicile court case.

A while ago, the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon was taken over by a number armed farmers and their supporters in their attempt to protest the treatment of two local farmers accused of malfeasance on Federal land. This has been a well publicized event so I’m not going to blog the details as they are readily available elsewhere.

Apparently the FBI is now moving in to break it up; I was asked to put up the live audio stream of what is going on:

Remember he said:

Add to it, this which was said before yesterday’s NH Primary:

GOPe Hack Sununu: “If Trump Only Wins by 12 Points… He Lost” (VIDEO)

So this is the latest Republican establishment (GOPe) talking point…Former Governor John Sununu, a Jeb Bush supporter, told America’s Newsroom if Donald Trump only wins New Hampshire by 12 points he loses–  I think Trump will win. I don’t think he’ll win by as much as he thinks he is and as much as the polls say. If he doesn’t win by 12 points I think the perception will be that he lost.’

Well, Trump lapped the entire rest of the field. Your boy Jeb! ended up 4th and Trump got 3X the votes Jeb! got.  Your son’s boy, Kasich, did come in second but got Trumped not by 5 pts, 10 pts, or even 15 pts – but by more than twice Kasich’s percentage (35% to 16%).  So he obviously didn’t lose, so does that make it YUUGE?  In fact, Trump got more votes than both Sununu backed candidates combined (35% to 25%).

Does this mean that Cory Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager and NH anti-Establishmentarianist, out-maneuvered the entire MIT educated Sununu family?

From Weekend Pundit:

Speaking of Bernie Sanders, we should all remember that he’s never held a private sector job. All of his paychecks have come from government, be it the city of Burlington, Vermont or from Uncle Sam as a member of Congress, either in the House or the Senate.

He’s never had to worry about making payrolls or having to deal with ever more restrictive or damaging regulations while trying to stay in business. He really has no clue what effect government spending, taxation, and regulation has on the average worker, and I doubt he really wants to know all of his rhetoric to the contrary.

-Chan (proprietor of Weekend Pundit)

Having signed my name to both sides of payroll checks, Chan is right.  I believe that any President (or head of a bureaucracy) should have in their resume at least one line item that show that they have had to wrestle with the effects of Government on a business.  After all, isn’t the Left (like Bernie) supposedly have the monopoly on “empathy”?  So why do they never have the empathy for those entities that pay their salaries?

Oh yeah, having gained high office, they can resort to their Marxist class warfare ideology AND MAKE IT HURT.  Problem is, they never seem to realize that they people they end up hurting are seldom those they were aiming at.
