So Zandra-Rice Hawkins LIES about the end game of gun control – confiscation

by Skip October 8, 2017

Boy, does this segue well from my previous post about Progressives lying in “the means justifies the end”. I DVR’d WMUR’s CLOSEUP as I usually do and I know for a fact that the anti-gunners DO want a complete confiscation of any and all civilian firearms: “If I could have banned them all – ‘Mr. […]

MicroInterview: WMUR’s Adam Sexton

by Skip November 4, 2015

At a “secret” meeting (again, who opened their big yammer??) that was blasted all over the political world here in NH of a group of conservatives, WMUR’s Adam Sexton showed up with his cameraman trying to get the jist of what was going on (and if someone was going to spill the beans as to what’s […]

Closeup: NH GOP Committeeman Steve Duprey takes a whack at the same people Walt Havenstein did.

by Skip October 4, 2015

Well, how’d that work out for him, eh Steve?  Are you looking to continue to whip up the alienation of the conservative base of the Party that Walt successfully torqued off and was subsequently unsuccessful at getting the same to vote for him (name of John Stark come to mind?) in the General Election? (and NO!, not […]

Why do Establishment Republicans have a “but” when it comes to Religious Freedom? Eh, Gov. Pataki?

by Skip April 5, 2015

Gov Pataki on WMUR’s Closeup (4/5): I agree completely with the idea that we have to protect peoples’ religious freedom.  There’s no question about that.  I quietly am, in my own way, deeply religious and I don’t want someone to tell me that I can’t practice my religion as I see fit.  But on the […]

James Pindell confirms much of “current Wisdom” – a hand behind the Throne

by Skip December 21, 2014

On today’s WMUR’s CloseUp, James Pindell is asked by Josh McElveen about Kelly Ayotte’s support of the events that led to the election of the Democrat appointed Speaker Shawn Jasper and her actions going forward.  In doing so, Pindell lays plain what many “out here” believe to be true: McElveen: If you are Kelly Ayotte […]

Remember, folks like David Hess helped the Democrats to split the Republican caucus in the past

by Skip December 1, 2014

A blast from the past – an interview with (now former) NH State Representative Seth Cohn on the arrogance with which David Hess sneeringly treated him on WMUR’s Closeup a couple of years ago: I met up with former NH State Rep Seth Cohn (he is not seeking re-election) at an informal meeting this afternoon […]

This is the definition of “Having one’s back”?

by Skip March 30, 2014

“Having one’s back” – the trust that one places in another that no matter the situation, no matter the circumstances, the other guy will be steadfast, present, and loyal.  It’s that last term that seems to be such a nuthingburger in politics where if political speed of movement could be measured when the mud starts […]

WMUR CloseUP – some thoughts

by Skip March 9, 2014

There’s almost always something just to make a comment about and this week is no different as the first segment had NH State Senator John Reagan, Josiah Bartlett Public Policy Center’s Exec. Dir. Charlie Arlinghouse, and Republican political operative Jim Merrill.  Each had something that evoked a quick comment. Reagan: Morse’s attempt was to extract […]

Sorry Zandra Rice-Hawkins but making an Obama-like pronouncement on CloseUp doesn’t make it true.

by Skip November 18, 2013

On WMUR’s CloseUp yesterday, Greg Moore of AFP/NH and Zandra Rice-Hawkins of Granite State Progress went tete-a-tete over the Medicaid Expansion here in NH.  I’ll be popping up some video about her attempting to make the equivalence that Obamacare is the same as the US Constitution (yes, she really did!) but she did make one […]

Voter Fraud – WMUR’s “Closeup” – domicile, intent, and “getting inside their heads”

by Skip August 11, 2013

Domicile and intent – which the Democrat Party has turned into “drive-by living” and “you can’t know what’s in my head” constructions to violate the integrity of true NH voters simply for partisan purposes.  NH Law: “An inhabitant’s domicile for voting purposes is that one place where a person, more than any other place, as […]

Where Burt Cohen makes a fool of himself on NH TV

by Skip December 29, 2012

As I have posted before, I generally DVR the regular Sunday morning talking head shows to listen to what the Progressive Libs have to say.  Most of the times, except for the Fox show, the Conservatives are out numbered.  So I was rather surprised at last week’s Closeup (WMUR 9, hosted by Josh McElveen – […]

WMUR Closeup for 6/10/2012: in which NH Rep David Hess decides to widen the chasm in the Republican Party by insulting it on TV

by Skip June 10, 2012

Unbelievable – do the Establishment Republicans feel THAT secure that Hess can openly insult NH Seth Cohn on TV – and all those that ascribe to many of the same stances?  I am sorely wishing to violate my own standards to use a four letter Yiddish word that ends in “z” – but I shan’t […]
