Notable Quote – Michael Ledeen

by Skip July 27, 2015

On the Obama / Kerry deal with Iran (emphasis mine): The critics are quite right for the most part: it’s an awful agreement, the administration has behaved abominably, and the deal should be rejected.  I’m just talking about the best way to do it, the best tactics to use.  Obama understands how to do it:  […]

If Only the Left Didn’t Repeat Failed History…

by Kimberly Morin July 27, 2015

The Left knows this but since they want everyone to be equally miserable, they will continue to pull down the strong in the name of ‘redistribution’ and ‘fairness’. Repeating failed history over and over again… it’s the leftist way. h/t Tim Corbett

I call them “Republican Republicans for the sake of the Republican Party”

by Skip July 27, 2015

Conservative Review had a good piece on the 3 types of Republicans that are in that cattle herd called Prez Wannabees (reformatted, emphasis mine): Change Agents Reformers Progressives It was this last category that I read twice and went – yup, this is why we are in trouble.  The post gives a definition for each, […]

Notable Quote – US Congressman Jeb Hensarling

by Skip July 27, 2015

Before Dodd-Frank’s passage, former Sen. Chris Dodd said that “no one will know until this is actually in place how it works.” Today we know. The law he co-wrote with former Rep. Barney Frank is gradually turning America’s largest financial institutions into functional utilities and taking the power to allocate capital—the lifeblood of the U.S. economy—away from the free market […]

Dead Bank Rising – Dems Vote For Corporate Welfare

by Mike July 27, 2015

Whilst we at Granite Grok expend a lot of pixels excoriating Republicans who cannot seem to grasp the basics of the Party Platform or the wishes of their voters, we also love to point out the hypocrisy of Democrats (and they are ALWAYS hypocritical). Especially in an election year, you will hear plenty from Democrats […]

Sleepless in Seattle?

Income trigger warning. A certain class of nearly-doing-well-enoughs are concerned that recent wage justice victories in Seattle will trigger income thresholds in a variety of government subsidies that will result in those free-rides being discontinued. They are asking their employers for fewer hours so they can keep their government handouts. Yes indeed. Seattle’s best only work to […]

Hassan’s Budget Con-promise.

by Steve MacDonald July 26, 2015
Thumbnail image for Hassan’s Budget Con-promise.

Governor Hassan opposed a reduction in New Hampshire business taxes. No tax cuts for those big out-of-state companies, she said. That’s not fair. I won’t sign that budget. She did not. Thursday she, and a gaggle of Democrats, went public with an alternative. In exchange for the proposed reduction in business taxes from the legislature’s […]

Ted Cruz’ Epic Rant: The Voters Came Out In Overwhelming Numbers, And Nothing Changed!

by Mike July 26, 2015

Don’t mess with Texas Ted! That warning ought to be tattooed on Mitch Mulch McConnell’s forehead as a warning that the voters are getting tired of delivering Republican majorities which do nothing to rein in big government. Specifically at issue is how our REPUBLICAN majority leader secured votes for the President’s Trade Promotion Authority (‘Fast […]

And the Republicans are bowing to Obama’s agenda again?

by Skip July 25, 2015

All I can do is shake my head in disbelief: WASHINGTON (AP) — A GOP-controlled Senate panel has voted to lift a decades-long ban on travel to Cuba, giving a boost to President Barack Obama’s moves to ease travel restrictions and open up relations with the Castro-governed nation.  The Senate Appropriations Committee also voted to […]

And they can’t kick Ted Cruz around over this: Congress headed for potential shutdown as GOP admits spending bills stalled

by Skip July 25, 2015

Yup.  The Republican Leadership really has but one job to do – pass the bills that fund and direct spending of the Federal Government.  Not even this can they do right, it seems.  One job to do – and with majorities in both parts of Congress, what’s their excuse (reformatted, emphasis mine)? Congress won’t get its […]

And the DC Republicans are wondering why the base is angry – at them?

by Skip July 25, 2015

Again, if they were to act like they talked, if they were to vote as they say they believe, I could go on to other stuff.  But they are masochists – they just BEG us to use the club they give us.  And I’d really prefer to write about other stuff – but these are […]

So, what’s the difference between US House Speaker John Boehner (R) and NH Executive Councilor Chris Sununu (R)?

by Skip July 25, 2015

Obviously, on this topic, nothing: Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)  won’t defund Planned Parenthood. He wants “facts first.” What more does he need? Planned Parenthood rips children apart, uses its clout to fund Democrat candidates, and preys on the black community. Again — this is why Trump is doing so well. Republican leaders will not fight and will […]

Obama, this is not “working”: meth lab in Fed building goes BLOOEY!

by Skip July 25, 2015

“The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works — whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified.” – President Barack Obama, Inauguration, 1/20/09 Yup, not working (reformatted, emphasis mine): A suspected meth […]

New Hampshire is a donor state. Ask anyone in the political class and they will tell you. New Hampshire pays more in federal taxes than it gets back. These same ‘experts’ are the ones convinced that Medicaid Expansion is a great deal. The Feds will pick up the tab at 100% for the states that sign […]
