edelblutforgovernor

 

Recently NH1 News reported that Frank Edelblut has released his first ad in the Republican primary gubernatorial race. Edelblut is currently a New Hampshire State Representative from Wilmot.

Edelblut is one of four candidates running in the Republican primary. He is the only candidate who has been endorsed by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance and the 603 Alliance. Edelblut has won several straw polls including the Windham Republican Debate and the Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers straw poll. Read the whole thing!

Minimum Wage Increase Puts 1,400 D.C. Restaurant Employees Out of Work

D.C. restaurants have lost 1,400 jobs in the first half of the year. This loss—the steepest drop since the 2001 recession—follows a significant minimum wage hike.

Data  suggests that the D.C. restaurant industry has been unable to absorb the higher cost of labor without reducing employment opportunities. Since mandating a base wage of $10.50 in July 2015 and another increase to $11.50 in July 2016, D.C. has seen employment in the restaurant industry trend downward, for a 3 percent job loss in 2016.

That’s interesting. If you raise the price of something beyond what the market will bear, demand falls.  Who knew?

It’s funny. The Left knows this. They use taxes to discourage behavior and things they don’t like, for example: cigarettes, coal, oil, fun etc.  They understand how this works; yet somehow, for some reason, they believe this truism doesn’t apply to the cost of labor.  What a weird blind spot.

Jeanie-Forrester

She’s not the most conservative candidate either…

Jeanie Forrester is promoting herself as having a 100% rating from New Hampshire Right to Life. In a past political life, that may have been true. But in the last session, State Senator Forrester did not take the 100% life position. NHRTL President Jane Cormier (a friend of mine and a contributor here at GraniteGrok) took to the pages of the Union Leader to question Forrester’s claims and to clarify the group’s 2016 endorsement in the New Hampshire Republican Primary for Governor.

To the Editor: Although ethics in the world of politics seems to be virtually extinct, the truth is still the truth. It is imperative New Hampshire have a true conservative in the corner office in 2017. New Hampshire Right to Life-PAC (NHRTL-PAC) has endorsed Rep. Frank Edelblut. Frank Edelblut is a true conservative who holds a stellar liberty voting record in our State House.

Another gubernatorial candidate, Jeanie Forrester, maintains on her campaign literature that she holds a 100 percent rating from NHRTL. This is categorically not true.

Hillary CackleLet me get this straight. Pathological liar and unindicted, lifelong criminal, Hillary Clinton, is going to divert attention from the next 75 days of “Pop Goes the Email” with some invented term of Alt-Right?

Alt-Right is supposed to sound scary?

Sorry, but I have been called a racist in so many ways and so many times it doesn’t have an effect. I don’t care. Go right ahead. Case closed.
By the way. Where can I get a tee shirt with “I’m Alt-Right” printed on it?

Hillary has thousands of millions of dollars to spend demonizing opponents and this is the best she and her team can come up with?

I am still me and proud of it. Call me what you want. Hillary is stuck being Hillary. She can never wipe that image off her shoe.

Alt-Right. What a laugh.

Where are the rest of the emails and how much money did she get for selling her Secretary of State office to foreigners?

Hillary Tse-tung

Hey, if Hillary can sweepingly stereotype Trump follows as the KKK (and remember, the KKK was started by the Democrat Party in the South and let’s not forget the Grand Kleagle and US Senator Robert Byrd – who Hillary lionizes), well, this is just us using the tactics of the Left.

Deal with it.  And her haberdashery is hideous.  Politics?  Design?  Both of her’s hide hideous things.  And like Mao, she puts the Collective first – the individual does not exist.

Conservative students are vastly outnumbered on campus, and their beliefs and values are often ridiculed by other students, professors and administrators. So, how can conservatives survive and thrive in college, while also making a difference? Matthew Woessner, a political science professor at Penn State Harrisburg, offers some tips.

The flip side – I have always daydreamed about if I ever won Powerball how much fun it would be to go back to enroll at a liberal college and just let it rip.  Hahahahahaha!  What’s the over / under on how long it would be before they’d kick me off it?

“Everything Trump promises comes with an expiration date,” said Cruz’s former Senate communications director, Amanda Carpenter. “We knew it during the primary, and now it is apparent he has duped his most loyal supporters on the issue they care about most, immigration. Don’t say we didn’t warn them.”

“It vindicates the speech, it vindicates what Ted Cruz warned would happen during the course of the campaign,” said Chris Wilson, the director of research, analytics and digital strategy on Cruz’s campaign and a top Cruz adviser who has always argued that the RNC speech would be remembered favorably. He went on to add, “I do think, yes, the immigration point is another data point that he was right, it’s another data point that leads people to understand Ted Cruz knew what he was talking about, he was making the right decision.”

While I am not a Trump supporter per se, I have stood up and clapped on a couple of items.  One was excoriating the Media for being biased to the point of being bigoted against Republican. They have decided that they cannot allow Trump to gain the office and it shows – they no longer report the news objectively but have become full-fledged members of the Democrat Party and acting like campaigners-with-bylines.

We on the Right have known this tendency for years but with this campaign, both the mask and any pretense to the contrary have been dropped.  And they wonder why their circulation rates and stock prices are plummeting still?

demsguncontrol

On Monday, WMUR released an interview segment with each Democrat running in the gubernatorial primary discussing gun control. As painful as it may seem to sit through interview after interview with any politicians, it’s important to understand what these men are saying and what they actually mean. All three Democrats for Governor – Colin Van Ostern, Mark Connolly and Steve Marchand – are for gun control yet claim to be supporters of the 2ndAmendment. Political Buzz breaks down their statements with facts. Read the whole thing!

Mike RoweThere is a media narrative about uneducated white men supporting Trump. Mike Rowe, when asked, was happy to talk us through it.

Let’s assume that Donald Trump is indeed popular among white men who didn’t graduate from college. The first question is, so what? Is this information newsworthy? Obviously, thousands of journalists think it is. To your point, the words “uneducated white men” now appear in hundreds of articles about Trump. But if this is truly important information, where were these reporters four years ago? In the last election, an even greater majority of African-American males who voted for President Obama had no college on their resume. Maybe I missed it, but I don’t recall any headlines or articles that delved into Obama’s popularity among “uneducated black men.”

If the media didn’t care about the lack of college among black men supporting Obama, why do they care so much about the lack of college among white men supporting Trump? Moreover, when exactly did a lack of college become synonymous with a lack of education?

The “Big Switch” myth is something the Democrats and Progressives repeat over and over again in an attempt to rinse themselves of their rancid racist history.  No doubt you heard it. It goes basically like this: Yes, yes, the Democrats were racist before 196o’s–what with all their votes against anti-lynching laws and the KKK teeming in their ranks. Of course they were!  But after the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Big Switch supposedly happened and all the nasty racists left the Democrat party and went to the Republican party.  Sound preposterous?  Good, because it is. It makes no sense when one looks at history and facts. And here Dinesh D’Souza obliterates and, I’d say embarrasses a “smug professor”.

How’s that higher minimum wage working out for jobs in DC? The nation’s capital has been leading the way on the minimum wage front and the Fight for 15 crowd couldn’t be happier. Still, those not invested in the future of the unions and the Social Justice Warrior movement have questions which deserve answers. Just […]

Maggie Hassan sent a press release that attempts to highlight her “Priorities for Women and Families” before Women’s Equality Day on Friday.

Maggie Hassan’s role model has been exposed again for more pay-to-play corruption while Sec-o-State. Hillary’s State Department fast-tracked a $10 million dollar government loan to a Clinton Foundation donor to build homes in Haiti. The donor used your money to prop up other scams. Not one home was built. The bigger story is that, despite Osorio’s […]
