by Ed Naile October 22, 2014

As state by state voter fraud schemes created by lawsuits, rigged court cases, and leftist legislatures take hold you will see more stories like this one from New York state where some voters are “164 years old”.

What Democrats Have Done

Thumbnail image for What Democrats Have Done

When people who politicize everything in the pursuit of power spend twenty-trillion of someone elses dollars in just a few years, well that buys a lot of something, and where Democrats are concerned it is called progress.  No, it wasn’t for science, or bridges, or good paying Middle Class jobs,* or equality, or security, prosperity, […]

How’s it hangin? Well, shriveled and withdrawn it turns out for the University of New Mexico and one of its iridescent professors.  Looks like they were so used to having the seemingly inexhaustible cudgel of politically correctness to bludgeon the skull of any poor fool that dared question their rainbow of intolerance that they went […]

I don’t follow my twitter feed much at night but I happened on it this evening and the Twitterverse (NH Edition) is all over the debates.  Guinta and Shea-Porter, Shaheen and Brown, there’s even residue from Kuster and Garcia.  (Annie is mean!)

Former State Senate Candidate Steve Kenda joins us eventually–(paving delay on 93 North)–for a detailed discussion on New Hampshire’s energy and electricity situation –not good, by the way.  (That discussion carries over into segment three.)

Thumbnail image for Jeanne Shaheen’s Legacy – How She Ruined Health Care

Jeanne Shaheen’s political legacy will be built on making health care more expensive and more difficult to get.  What she did to New Hampshire was bad enough.  But then Democrats sent to her Washington so she could double down on failure.  Aaaannnnd She did.

On Union Discipline and Employee Rights Unfortunately, most employees do not know or clearly understand their choices and legal alternatives vis-a-vis the union. On the one hand, it is common knowledge that employees have the right to join and assist unions. Less well known, however, is employees’ right to refrain from supporting the union. This […]

So Kelly Ayotte, is this the Amnesty you have been looking for?

Sorry, but here at the ‘Grok, if you tell us one thing during your campaign for office (adamantly anti-Illegal Alien Amnesty) and then flip on the issue for no discernable reason (other than what the picture shows to your left) (yes, she was then for it after being against it), we tend to take notice […]

Segment one, in typical GrokTALK! fashion, touches on a whirlwind of topics in rapid succession.  Obama’s disciples deny him three times, at least.  How the Diversity officer at Wellesley can’t be too diverse, Grabby Giffords, the Communist endorsement of Shaheen, Shea-Porter ad Komrade Kuster, Village Idiot Carol Shea-Porter’s opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline and […]

California’ ‘experts’ have been wasting money on bullet-trains and solar farms, when they should have been building desalinization plants.  But how could they know?  The science and computer models the liberals in politics, the education establishment, and media insist are gospel contradict themselves if they don’t just get it wrong… So some climate models say […]

Not that long ago, when given the opportunity to keep hundreds of millions of dollars annually from leaving New Hampshire, Jeanne Shaheen, Barack Obama’s Senate envoy to New Hampshire, voted to back the plundering pirates from Washington over state and local control…of transportation dollars.

Meet President Obama’s Eblola ‘Flack’ jacket. Ron Klain is a sharp-elbowed Democratic political operative with no medical expertise. Tapping him as “Ebola czar” may not be the president’s best move when, as it is, no one can believe a word the Obama administration says. And that’s not just because Mr. Klain is yet another lobbyist […]
