The mother of the crying child featured on the cover of TIME Magazine was previously deported from the United States in 2013, according […]

Family Separation Week Bonus: Democrats Reject ‘Bi-Partisan’ Legislative Fix To Stop “Family Separations”

by Steve MacDonald June 21, 2018

Border Security and immigration policy are matters of law. In a land of laws, with the rule of law, the law defines the terms. In America, if you come here without permission, you can get arrested, no matter what your age or who may be with you. This leads to parents getting separated from their […]

It’s Family Separation Week at CNN – Retaliatory Carpet Truth Bombing Required

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2018

One of the televisions at Cardiac Rehab was on CNN this morning. The volume is down (thank the Lord), but it has closed captioning, so you can read (or not) what’s important to the Leader in Fake News. It’s all about “separating families.” The whole time I was there. CNN is, not unexpectedly, all in […]

Sandown Separation Article Survives Town Meeting – Will Appear on Ballot

by Steve MacDonald February 1, 2016
Thumbnail image for Sandown Separation Article Survives Town Meeting – Will Appear on Ballot

A warrant article question survived the deliberative process in the town of Sandown, New Hampshire this past Saturday. To paraphrase, “Do the Sandown voters want to begin the process of getting out from under the tyrannical boot of the Earl of Metzler to form a separate school district?” Or maybe you’d prefer this version.

There is No Separation of Church And State Refugee Resettlement Dollars

Thumbnail image for There is No Separation of Church And State Refugee Resettlement Dollars

If you are one of those “separation of church and state” folks or someone who simply takes issue with the Feds sending tax-dollars to religious organizations you’d best not also be out there crying compassion for the resettlement of refugees. Why? Because most of the billions spent to resettle refugees in the US every year […]

NH SB 120 The Democrats Long Sought ‘Wall Of Separation’ Between “Free” and “Speech” (Sponsored by Republicans)

by Steve MacDonald February 9, 2014
Thumbnail image for NH SB 120 The Democrats Long Sought ‘Wall Of Separation’ Between “Free” and “Speech” (Sponsored by Republicans)

Rumor has it that the NH Republican majority Senate is ready to dust off Republican sponsored SB 120, and push it through the legislature.  The democrats could not be happier. SB 120 is a bill that redefines what a committee is, and what classifies as an expenditure for the purposes of political speech.  And it […]

Separation of The Climate Church And State

by Steve MacDonald July 14, 2013

Liberals want to spend  your money to create energy “solutions” that can never deliver enough power to meet our needs, whose manufacturing processes are extremely harmful to the environment, that do not produce very many jobs, cannot be sustained without taxpayer support (many of which fail despite it), many of whose raw materials come from […]

Separation of Church and State? For a Christian at a high school Graduation, but not for an Islamic footbath?

by Skip June 10, 2013

It is graduation time around the country, and once again, wussy school districts all over just can’t stand the idea of having to face up to ANYone complain that “Thou Shalt Not Pray to God, Thou Shalt Not Praise [the Christian] God, or mention The Bible – else, “they” will sue us.  Yes, we wet […]

OK, so where DOES it state “Separation of Church & State” in the Constitution?

by Skip May 16, 2013

For many, the answer is “er, somewhere in there”.  For others, it’s an inside joke (watch and find out). I agree with the Professor – what has come to pass was never written at all.  This is splendid discussion of what I have posited in the past – that perhaps it is time to bring […]

Separation From Power

by Steve MacDonald December 16, 2010

Kathy Sullivan used her scheduled rant in the Union leader this week to warn us about the Republican controlled NH House and its anticipated legislative agenda. The serpentine theme manufactured to tie her fear-mongering together is a sudden (and I’ll admit unexpected) adoration for the concept of “Separation of Powers.” This is the idea that by dividing authority the vessels of power would jealously guard each of their own and in the process prevent the others from advancing tyranny.

A Real Separation Of Powers

by Steve MacDonald November 24, 2010

Separation of powers is something of a throw-away phrase for the Socialist-Democrat-Progressives. They hand it out like a comfort object to the public, a sort of well-worn teddy bear for the masses. It is meant to remind you that no matter what they do (or did) that bear will be there to help you feel better.

Separation Of State…from Church.

by Steve MacDonald October 27, 2010

Yesterday I came across a series of poorly worded essay questions—my second sons homework–the worst of which was this; What part of Article VI of the US constitution supports the idea of separation of church and state? Explain. (Go ahead and roll your eyes or make a grunting noise, or whatever it is you do when confronted with such nonsense.)

Separation of Charity and State in NH? Of COURSE not!

by Skip October 4, 2008

A week ago, there was a special meeting in Concord at our State House.  Why?  Solely to increase the amount of money that would be put towards assistance for the poor for heating costs (yes, in NH, it can get cold and stay there for a while – not unusual to have a week where […]

Separation of Church and State?

by Skip October 24, 2007

We hear all the time of the separation of church and state.  The ACLU makes quite the living from either threatening to sue or actually suing different towns and districts to prohibit not the establishment of religion but seemingly the free expression of religion. I generally want the latter – not squelching of the expression […]

Following is a communication to some of my fellows in the General Court (Legislature) of the State of New Hampshire.  For those of you who don’t know me, I have spent the last eighteen years in the Legislature.  Most of my time has been spent on the Committee on Children and Family Law, because I […]

Party like it’s 1854

by Ian Underwood August 17, 2018

There’s a lot of discussion just now about Eddie Edwards’s decision to pull out of the first Republican Congressional District 1 (CD1) debate rather than sign a pledge to support the eventual primary winner. Is he showing ‘character’, and ‘standing up for his principles’, by refusing to sign the pledge?  That’s one way of looking […]

The RINO Virus (Part III, Recovery)

by Ian Underwood July 25, 2018

  Led by Marie Kondo, a wave of tidying up is sweeping the nation.  People everywhere are going through their belongings, posing some simple tests, and getting rid of the items that fail those tests. In Ms. Kondo’s case, the test is:  Does this item spark joy?  If it does, you keep it.  If not, you […]

The RINO Virus (Part II, Cure)

by Ian Underwood July 24, 2018

It seems that not a week goes by that we don’t hear conservatives and libertarians moaning, ‘Why did we bother to elect Republicans if they’re just going to _____?’ Republicans seem to have forgotten what a political party is for.  It’s a way to focus time, effort, energy, and money so that they don’t get dissipated.  […]

The RINO Virus (Part I, Diagnosis)

by Ian Underwood July 23, 2018

Years ago, a friend told me about something he calls the ‘baby test’.  To take it, raise either arm straight up so your upper arm touches your ear.  Bend the arm at the elbow.  If you can make a 90-degree angle, you’re not a baby. It occurs to me that there is a similar test […]

This is What I Want In a Supreme Court Judge

by Steve MacDonald July 10, 2018

Most of the copy I’m reading on SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh revolves back to a common point. The guy is a textualist who opposes a reimagining of the separation of powers.  That includes courts and bureaucrats who too often think they get to decide what things mean instead of making Legislators do it. Kavanaugh is a committed textualist. As […]

The Democrat’s Child Endangerment Exception: Not a Crime for Illegal Aliens

by Steve MacDonald July 10, 2018

We had separation week, but as it turns into Separation Summer, I had another thought about how hypocritical the far-left is on the so-called issue of Trump separating families. If you walked your children across an unforgiving desert or placed them in the company of narco-terrorists, drug dealers, human traffickers, or gang members, sometimes for […]

Mother of Time Magazine’s Crying Child Left Husband and Three More Kids in Honduras

by Steve MacDonald June 25, 2018

Sandra Sanchez is the mother of Time Magazine’s crying family separation poster child. They might want to try someone else. The Obama Administration deported Sanchez in 2013. Her daughter, an icon for the left’s 2018 narrative, was never separated from her mother. And the little girl was only separated from her family because her mother dragged […]

Jeanne Shaheen’s Hypocrisy on Borders and Executive orders

by Steve MacDonald June 23, 2018

Jeanne Shaheen is at the front of the line when it comes to the far-left Democrat rhetoric on borders and executive orders. She’s happy to push the false narrative. She got behind Schumer who refused bipartisan reform in favor of political posturing. She even signed on to a bad “immigration reform bill” that could let any […]

Not a freaking clue: Wow – just wow.  RRftSotRP (Republican Republican for the Sake of the Rebin big steaming piles on this one. The writer is obviously upset in that there is not total agreement with NH GOP Party anointed candidates.  The overriding message is exemplified by this: (courtesy of uber-Progressive Joe Wernig) Er, no, I’m […]

Seeking Asylum Separates ‘Parents’ From “Children” Especially When You Lie About It

by Steve MacDonald June 20, 2018

Of the few “children” who cross the border illegally “accompanied” by a parent or family member the most common cause of separation is seeking asylum. If they just turned around and went home, they’d never have to part with their kids. If they applied to enter legally, they’d never be separated from their kids. But by […]

Liberal Hypocrisy on Separating Children From Parents or Families

by Steve MacDonald June 17, 2018

The left has settled into its latest anti-Trump narrative. He’s evil because he separates parents and children. That’s funny because an entire progressive social experiment or (experiments) championed and defended by liberals has been separating parents and children for decades. And I’m not talking about abortion. No fault divorce. Modern Feminism. Glorifying single-motherhood. The infantilzation of […]
