GrokTV Special Event: Granite State Patriot Liberty PAC TEA Party – Conservative / Libertarian candidates make their case and ask for support

by Skip April 22, 2012

No one can accuse Ovide Lamontagne, candidate for NH GOP nomination for NH Gov.,  of sitting and waiting for that nomination to come to him.  He doesn’t feel entitled to it – he knows he as to earn it.  Here at Saturday’s GSPLPAC  TEA Party, Friday night at the AFP/NH Conservative of the Year award for […]

GrokTV Special Event: Granite State Patriot Liberty PAC TEA Party – Intro Ceremonies

by Skip April 22, 2012

Yesterday the ‘Grok went to the Granite State Patriot Liberty PAC (“GSPLPAC”) “Jack is Back!” TEA Party. Meant as the start of a rallying point, a number of conservative candidates and speakers talked to a crowd that was double that which was originally expected. Sure, most of the TEA Party rolled up its sleeves and […]

GrokTV Special Event: AFP/NH 2012 Conservative of the Year Award – Recipient, US Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)

by Skip April 22, 2012

And as is the case with all these award dinners, the recipient gets a spot to speak.  Certainly, she went through the litany of thanks, put in her plug for Mitt, and continued the theme of most folks on the Right side of the aisle – we cannot allow Obama to continue to take this […]

GrokTV Special Event: AFP/NH 2012 Conservative of the Year Award – Award Presenter, US Senator John Thune (R-SD)

by Skip April 22, 2012

The next to last speaker Friday night was the US Senator from South Dakota, John Thune.  If nothing else, he rates high on my list because he took out Tom Dashle – the incumbent Democrat who was the leading Democrat in the Senate at the time (and who, when Obama chose him to be a […]

GrokTV Special Event: AFP/NH 2012 Conservative of the Year Award – Ovide Lamontagne, candidate for NH GOP nominee for NH Governor

by Skip April 22, 2012

AFP is, no doubt, a conservative organization that supports limited government, free markets, and lower taxes in the pursuit of enhanced individual freedom and liberty (full disclosure – I was selected to be AFP’s 2011 National Activist of the Year for GraniteGrok’s new media activities; I believe in these foundational ideas).  In being such, it […]

GrokTV Special Event: AFP/NH 2012 Conservative of the Year Award – AFP/NH Executive Director Corey Lewanowski’s introductory remarks

by Skip April 22, 2012

“It’s my party and I talk if I want to!”  Heh! Of COURSE Corey got to speak – he and his assistant Joy Lutes put a lot of time and effort into setting this up right and I think it came off well – I believe that every seat was filled in the large ballroom […]

In answer to James Pindell: how many?

by Skip April 22, 2012

Over at WMUR Political Scoop, James has a weekly feature of Up and Down on which he comments on the political waves of the week past as well as what he can see from the top of yardarm (and we shan’t posit on the method by which he was hoisted up there); this week he […]

(US Senate) Democrats Still Running From The Budget

by Steve MacDonald April 22, 2012

Hot Air: Only three Democrats bothered to show up at all, out of a dozen assigned to it.  Republicans showed up, prepared to cast votes to finally bring the ignominious streak of 1,085 days (as of yesterday) without a budget resolution to an end.  Sadly, Democrats — who control the committee, the chamber, and the […]

“Negros With Guns”

by Tim Condon April 22, 2012

Ann Coulter, despite her recent foolishness in attacking Newt Gingrich, is nearly always, ahem, “on target.” As with her recent column, “Negros with Guns,” which starts out like this: Liberals have leapt on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida to push for the repeal of “stand your ground” laws and to demand tighter […]

Long read regarding socialist statism and voting Democrat….

by Tim Condon April 22, 2012

I regularly get into political scrums with leftists in various venues. What follows is one where I got set off enough to pen a major lecture to a local socialist (I’ll call him “Chuck”). He was going on about what a successful President Barack Obama is, and how he truly deserves to be re-elected, and […]
