GrokTV: Rockingham Repub Dinner – Intro Ceremonies

by Skip May 11, 2014

As I said here, the Rockingham County Republicans held their annual Washington / Lincoln / Reagan Dinner at the gorgeously restored Wentworth By the Sea (a project that Bill Binnie undertook when everyone said couldn’t be done given the absolute state of disrepair it had become).  The big draw for the night was US Senator […]

Mike Pence Looking Strong For 2016

by Mike April 27, 2014

I’ve written about Mike Pence before: About how I’ve admired his humility and his principled voting record, about his gravitas and speaking ability, and how he carries himself with the dignity becoming of a Presidential contender. In my prior article, I mentioned his stellar record with the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF), and, it turns […]

Your World with Neil Cavuto, Wednesday April 23rd: Rick Perry talks with Stuart Varney about BLM land grabs, Greg Abbott, Jeb Bush’s ludicrous immigration statements, and his 2016 aspirations.

Even THESE Lefty talking heads don’t know what Hillary’s done

by Skip April 14, 2014

Sorry, but putting up with Bill’s philandering doesn’t make one a Presidential quality candidate.  Either does being an activist First Lady.  Haven’t heard of her singular accomplishments as a US Senator after she just “dropped into” New York either (although I have heard she was a hard worker – but I couldn’t tell you what […]

2016 Presidential Poll – TEA Party style

by Skip February 11, 2014

Ok, ok, it’s early and this poll may mean absolutely zero for results.  But in a way, it is interesting to see WHO gets put into the mix: The poll provided 11 different matchups. From there, the support for each were totaled. Texan Cruz was at the top with 84 percent supporting his candidacy, followed […]

by Rick Olson January 1, 2014

“Principles have no real force except when one is well-fed.”  —Mark Twain   New Jersey has some of the toughest gun laws in America. Citizens in New Jersey are virtually unarmed. Issuance of licenses or permits to carry a pistol concealed are the exception, not the rule. In order to do so, one must have a […]

“Do you know who I am?” vs “The Big Guy sent me”

by Skip November 8, 2013

Interesting question at Pindell’s Political Scoop – but he missed the even more important question.  He did ask:   How is the first meeting between Matt Mowers and David Chesley going to go?   Chesley is Chesley only because he’s been riding on Horn’s skirt train (well, coattails would have been chauvinist, right (Lord Political […]

Let me see if I have this right – if we don’t fall in line with Rubio’s comprehensive amnesty bill, we get Obama’s

by Skip August 13, 2013

Executive order?  Oh, so you want us to help you rearrange your deck chairs on your own personal amnesty Titanic? “I believe that this president will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, he will be tempted to issue an executive order like he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he […]

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip August 4, 2013

On the on-going fight between Chris Christie and Rand Paul as a proxy for the widening rift between the Establishment Republicans and the more independent grassroots on Libertarianism in the Republican Party: “Let’s be clear what libertarianism is and what it isn’t: it is not anarchism, it has a role for government,” he said. “What […]

Competency counts

by Skip May 4, 2013

Exhibit A.  Barack Obama.  My, he looks so uncomfortable “skeet” shooting (one of those photo-ops trying to show him trying to “be one of the guys”). Then there is a guy who actually knows how to shoot a long gun; of course, it’s the guy from Texas: It was unfortunate how his run for President […]

It’s NEVAH too early to start the next Prez campaign, eh?

by Skip November 22, 2012

From a story in Politico, some names of the Republican “front runners?” (geeze, did I really just type that?) for the 2016 campaign.  OK, amuse me – pick your favs and vote once per day! Your choice for “front runner” for the 2016 Republican Presidential nominee? US Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) Governor. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) […]

Well, NH has a law for the First-In-The-Nation Primary so why SHOULDN’T South Carolina make it law for the First-In-The-South-Primary?

by Skip March 27, 2012

And the jumping escapades just got a tad more pro-active.  Everyone knows (even if they won’t admit it) that NH Republicans have no choice as to when the NH Primary is held – by LAW, it must be the first in the nation.  Methinks that South Carolinians have done this just to slam down the […]
