It’s not ‘fake’ if you don’t want it to be real

by Ian U July 16, 2018

Recently, Skip started a post with this charming thought:  ‘The job of a journalist is to report facts, add context where necessary, and leave it to the consumer to decide what he thinks.’ I would have agreed with that before I read Neil Postman’s excellent book How to Watch TV News.  But Postman helped me […]

Appellate Court Slaps Down University for “cavalier attitude toward petitioner’s due process rights”

by Steve MacDonald July 16, 2018

My interest in this decision is two-fold. First, no small amount of effort has been expended on these pages to highlight the abuse of rights on college campuses or the culture that facilitates it. Second, I attended the University of Buffalo, which was just dope-slapped by a New York State Appellate Court for its banana-republic-like judgment against […]

Breaking: Trump and Putin Agree To Split Europe

by Mike July 16, 2018

This is NOT The Onion but we don’t take ourselves too seriously Appearing on camera together after their private summit in Helsinki (or was it Yalta?), the two leaders came out to take questions from the press, and were all jovial and smiling: “My friend Vlad and I may have different styles, but we both […]

Where Obama Pretended, Trump Team Supports Real Black ‘Power’

by Steve MacDonald July 16, 2018

Paul Driessen, writing at Townhall, explains Carbon Colonialism. Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) use manmade climate change alarmism to justify lending policies that reject funding for fossil fuel electricity generation, promote expensive and unreliable renewable sources, and thereby help keep impoverished nations poor. But something is changing.

Two Minutes Hate: Elon Musk Donates Wrong!

by Mike July 15, 2018

As the Democrat party drifts closer and closer to Orwell’s dystopia in their governing philosophy, it is clear that independent thought is forbidden. He donated to the GOP – gasp! Shock! As American Thinker notes, planet-saving darling of the left, Elon Musk, has been caught donating to the GOP, and so he’s this week’s poster […]

“I Think My Dog’s a Democrat”

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2018

No, not my dog, well, maybe. I’d like to think our “relationship” is voluntary on my part. I chose it. But back to the music. This song by Bryan Lewis was sent to me by Jim. It’s amusing and as Jim notes, light-hearted…to brighten up your Sunday Morning. See if you agree.

Are New Hampshire Democrats Guilty of Voter Suppression?

by Steve MacDonald July 15, 2018

I was in Concord Yesterday. The car in front of me on Main Street, a Honda Fit, had a Clinton-Kaine bumper sticker and another from the ACLU that said something like ‘Let Them Vote.’ The ACLU and I get along swimmingly on issues of free speech but not so much on their false-flag, straw-man student […]

Notable Quote – Prof. Thomas Sowell

by Skip July 14, 2018

“One of the consequences of such notions as ‘entitlements’ is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.” -Prof. Thomas Sowell We owe them, as opposed to “gee, thanks for helping me”.  This is what happens with […]

Blogline of the Day – What they fear most they first seek to destroy

by Skip July 14, 2018

Democrats Don’t Fear Brett Kavanaugh. They Fear the Constitution. OK, let me try to write short on this one for a change: Do I really need to explain why? When the Left is reduced to calling him a “frat boy” because of his first name, you KNOW they got nuttin’ and he isn’t the real […]

Yeah, here’s the real Democrat Socialist position

by Skip July 14, 2018

Yet, they are supposed to be the “nice” brand of Socialism? Believe that and I’ve got a whole LOT of bridges that I’d like to sell you. They ARE the lipstick on the pig and the only freedoms you’d have are only ones they’d deign to give to you.  On a good day. If they feel […]

Quick Thought: CNN gets it wrong again!

by Skip July 14, 2018

SHOT: CNN Sports Says Social Justice Warrior Athletes Seen as Less than Human CHASER: Wrong.  It’s not “…Less than Human“. It IS “More annoying than Humanly possible” Again, I used to watch as an ESCAPE from politics rather than being preached at from a Socialist viewpoint.  Why would I lend my eyeballs and money in supporting […]

ANTIFA Invokes “Rights” for Itself It Would Deny To Everyone Who Disagrees With Them

by Steve MacDonald July 14, 2018

Progressive arguments for campaign finance reform (see also, the false getting money out of politics narrative) have nothing to do with transparency or money. They are about exposing donor lists to intimidation by left-wing thugs to suppress donations, and the speech they would afford political opponents. Alternately or should I say Alt-Lefternately, Antifa, one of the […]

Liberal Outrage: Trump Bows To No-one

by Mike July 14, 2018

America earned its independence and standing in the world. American Presidents do not bow to foreign rulers. Not even The Queen! Cue the liberal outrage, but real Americans don’t care. Trump was right to shake the Queen’s hand. Cartoon by Ben Garrison And a sampling of the outrage and responses on Twitchy.com

Question: GraniteGrok Meetups

by Skip July 14, 2018

As we try to ramp GraniteGrok to the next level, one of the things being contemplated is doing Meetups – instead of you coming here, we Groksters would come out and meet with you folks.  Purpose?  Just to yak, talk, converse – you know, share a bit of fellowship.  So, I’d like to find out […]

Democrats are Still Colluding With Out-of-State Voters to Steal NH Elections

by Steve MacDonald July 14, 2018

The State Supreme Court has ruled (in its analysis of HB1264, which the governor then signed yesterday) that out-of-state college students do not have more rights than actual citizens of New Hampshire. They are not entitled to a special exclusion from the responsibilities actual residents accept including registering vehicles in the Granite State or obtaining a […]

Guare, The No Win Case

by Ed Naile July 14, 2018

Take a look at some of the more interesting parts of the 2014 Guare v. NH case that was meant to codify out-of-state, unqualified voter’s participation in New Hampshire elections. You can see how this case, in my opinion, was never meant to be won by “our side.” My comments are in parenthesis. Supreme Court […]

Rick Notkin – candidate for NH State House, Belknap County District 2

by Skip July 13, 2018

Recently I was asked why I was running for NH State Representative. The easy answer would be that I was corralled into it. Really, there was an open seat as one of the reps was not running for re-election so I had an opportunity to “put my money where my mouth was”, so to speak. One of […]

Sununu Signs HB1264 – Clarifying Residence and Domicile for Voting Purposes.

by Steve MacDonald July 13, 2018

Ed Nail has been all over this, naturally but I just finished reading the decision so while you should read all of Ed’s remarks I want to try to use the court’s judgment to clarify what just happened when Governor Sununu signed HB1264 into law. An excerpt from the State Supreme Court’s decision will help us […]

CNHT Taxpayer Family Reunion Picnic – NH’s Executive Council candidates: Jane Cormier and Jim Beard

by Skip July 13, 2018

To be honest, I would have thought a few more prospective Republican candidates would have shown up at the CNHT Annual Taxpayer Picnic: Like my Exec. Councilor, Joe Kenney who has a primary with Kim Strathdee in District 1 (yes, my personal “please vote for Joe Kenney”) Russell Prescott (who went to the Dark Side […]

CNHT Taxpayer Family Reunion Picnic – “Send us your stuff!”

by Skip July 13, 2018

No, I wasn’t on the roster of speakers but I decided to try anyways – and Keith Hanson of WNTK, the MC for the CNHT Annual Taxpayer Picnic, allowed me a few moments.  As I pointed out here, I’ve been making this offer for a while: So, knowing the reach of GraniteGrok, why not use […]

#BrettKavanaughScandals

by Steve MacDonald July 13, 2018

The left is so unhinged about the nomination of (XX) that the progressive monkeys are “digging deep” for any bit of poo to throw. This has ignited the Twitterverse with a new hashtag. #BrettKavanaughScadals. As you might expect, the denizens of said ‘verse’ are having a blast owning that hashtag to make fun of the left. Carrie […]

Here is the problem with crying “poll tax” in a crowded dorm.

by Ed Naile July 13, 2018

After decades of accepting non-citizens votes as equal to a qualified citizen’s vote, the New Hampshire State Supreme Court has acknowledged in its recent opinion that one must be domiciled in New Hampshire to vote here. This means that being domiciled in our state carries certain responsibilities – the same responsibilities as that of any […]

The Last Straw

by Steve MacDonald July 13, 2018

Sometimes you feel like a win, any win, is enough. Hey, what about banning drinking straws? They’re easy to use, convenient, people like them, but something about the environment. Starbucks, the same company that very briefly brought us the opportunity to discuss race relations with their counter-people (pompously branded with the label barista), is leading a […]

Use An Out of State License to Vote? We Punch a Hole In It!

by Ed Naile July 13, 2018

The circular logic New Hampshire courts use to let unqualified out-of-state residents vote in our state goes on and on. In 2012 a Superior Court judge, now retired because he let other stupid opinions he had about female attorneys be known, issued an injunction against an attempt by the NH Legislature to stop out-out-state voters […]

New Hampshire State Supreme Court: HB1264 is Constitutional, And Then Some…

by Ed Naile July 12, 2018

I see two of the New Hampshire State Supreme Court have almost put an end to our policy of letting out-of-state, unqualified voters determine our Federal elections. The two others, Gary Hicks and Jimmy Bassett, should be removed from office for lack of enough common sense to be on any court. The majority found that […]

Why judges shouldn’t be lawyers

by Ian U July 12, 2018

We seem to take it for granted that, when it’s time to pick a new judge for an appellate court, we should look at people who are already serving as judges on lower courts.  And when we’re filling vacancies on those lower courts, it seems natural that we should look at lawyers who have been […]
