“Me Too! Not getting enough attention here, everybody look at me! I am about to Virtue Signal. Hey! look at me, everybody! I’m virtue signalling.  Oh, that Concord Monitor.

FB Doodlings: Who speaks for the father? Who speaks up for the innocent child?

by Skip February 16, 2018

In the Concord Monitor a bit ago, a Dr. Oge Young had a piece on abortion with the thrust being (emphasis mine): Many people seem to think a woman’s pregnancy is an open invitation to decide what is best for her. Lawmakers who know nothing of a woman’s complex life circumstances should have no voice […]

Climate Change, Climate Change, Climate Change – is there nothing we can’t blame it on?

by Skip February 9, 2018

There is a water crisis going on in Cape Town, South Africa right now – they are expecting to run out of potable water in this city of 4 million people rather soon (a few months) and the Concord Monitor is both wringing its hands and bunching up its panties over it.  Given the headline […]

by Skip December 29, 2017

HB 628: Paid family and medical leave SurPRISE!  Yet another Op-Ed in the Concord Monitor genuflecting at the Altar of Big Govt: “Pray, give us this “benefit” even as we could do it ourselves? Once again, supplication from one whose industry very well could be sucking at yet another teat of Government (you know, the […]

Concord Monitor Believes Govt is Entitled To Our Money?

by Skip December 15, 2017

The Concord Fishwrap has a piece from the AP on the tax package going through Congress right now with the loaded title: “Tax Package would lower top tax rate for wealthy Americans.” As if that’s all it does.  Not that I am surprised – the CM is always the Progressive mouthpiece for Marxist class warfare (do […]

The headline over the weekend on a post about Obamacare: Trump’s blow to Obamacare jolts health consumers, politics President Donald Trump’s abrupt move to cut off federal payments to insurers jolted America’s health care and political worlds alike on Friday, threatening to boost premiums for millions, disrupt insurance markets and shove Republicans into a renewed […]

The Concord Monitor Reminds US What Taxation Means To Progressives

by Steve MacDonald April 17, 2017

The Progressive view care of the Concord Monitor. The state still doesn’t know the full impact of a recent cut in business tax rates, but the Legislature is already considering another reduction. A Republican-backed Senate bill would further lower the business profits and enterprise taxes in 2020, resulting in an estimated loss of $81 million in […]

Really!  Because you are successful, the Concord Monitor judges you to be EEEVVVIIIILLL simply because INCOME INEQUALITY!  Yep, just go that Marxist route of just because your ability is there, it must go to someone else because of their need (reformatted, emphasis mine).

The “NEW” Gun Nut

by Rick Olson December 6, 2016

“Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one…” -George Orwell I don’t read the Concord Monitor. In fact, I completely avoid it ninety percent of the time.  In my humble opinion, it is a leftist rag and chucked full of worthless progressive trash. If one is ever successful of getting ten pounds of sh*t […]

Judge Must Still Rule on Brief in Case of Carl Robert Gibson

by Ed Naile August 4, 2016

CNHT has been tracking and documenting voter fraud since 2000. The Carl Robert Gibson case is a prime example of how voter fraud is accepted and ignored by the parties you would normally expect to prosecute and expose it. Carl Robert Gibson is one of many outside activists who come to NH every election cycle. […]

Concord Monitor: Missing articles about Carl Gibson and Yvonne Dean-Bailey

by Kimberly Morin August 3, 2016

Recently it was reported that the Concord Monitor refused to allow their reporter, Nick Reid, to testify in court in Democrat operative Carl Gibson’s voter fraud case. They claimed it was a First Amendment right that Reid not testify even though Reid was the one who discovered that it was Gibson who sent a hoax […]

Source: WalletHub This is an Interactive map! Skip took some time to fisk a letter to the Concord Monitor in which someone named John Andrews complains about the high property taxes in New Hampshire. He notes that across the border in Maine, he’d be paying a lot less in property taxes. Skip does a great job […]

John Andrews obviously doesn’t want people to have any control of their tax burden

by Skip July 20, 2016

Ah yes, yet another missive from the Left complaining that the amount raised by property taxes here in NH should be paid by anyone other than by themselves.  While the original is after the jump, this Letter to the Concord Monitor quickly sums up their argument (reformatted, emphasis mine): The writer cites a $250,000 house […]

Comedy Bang Bang

by Ed Naile January 13, 2016

As with every election circus/cycle here in the “First in the Nation Presidential Primary” we have an assorted array of publicity seekers – some are the actual candidates themselves. Here we go with a pair of “comedians” who wandered on stage at a Ted Cruz event in Hudson. The Concord paper reported some of the […]

Concord Monitor drops their curtain: whose money is it really?

by Skip April 16, 2015

Yes, yesterday was Tax Day – the day that Progressives celebrate as the epitome of their philosophy of “it’s ours, stupid” (and give thanks to its sub-holiday, the  Current Tax Payment Act of 1943 which allowed the Feds to automatically take your money).  Your money?  The Feds’ money?  So, the Concord Monitor; where do YOU think it stands […]

Hassan Stiffs Concord Monitor And They Don’t Like It

by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2015
Thumbnail image for Hassan Stiffs Concord Monitor And They Don’t Like It

Welcome to the Real World. This famous cinematic quote suits the moment as the Concord Monitor, the pragmatic-socialist New Hampshire “paper-of-record,” finds itself on the receiving end of progressive-bureaucrat obfuscation. In the movie, Morpheus has pulled the wool of the Matrix from Neo’s eyes.  The modern world as he knows it does not exist.  In […]

The Concord Monitor Editorial board has a distorted sense of “freedom”

by Skip February 19, 2015

Gosh, I can start this post just like I ended the last one (w/one small change): Remember, with Democrats Progressives  it is NEVER the actual purpose of Government (“…that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments […]

Thirty-six days ago we began a series of reports about a guy from Oregon named Terry Bean.  Mr. Bean is accused of sexually assaulting at least one minor.  Sadly, this is not a common story (public school teachers are accused of it all the time), but in this instance the “someone” arrested and accused sits […]

Concord Attorney R. James Steiner, a self-proclaimed life-long Republican, has a letter in the Concord Monitor in which he declares his electoral love for Democrat Jeanne Shaheen. He considers her  bi-partisan, and does not think it a good idea to change leadership midstream.  He plans to vote for her in November.  He’s a Republican for […]

Gun Nuts

by Ed Naile June 16, 2014

The Washington Post, cranking up its 2014 free political donation to liberal candidates, has assembled some simple talking points about gun confiscation for the small liberal papers to promote. The Concord paper, dutifully, has done so. Here it is for what it is worth: Here is the “easy for the low information voter to remember” […]

So  Mitch Kopacz, President of Gun Owners of NH, what’s the deal?  You REALLY think that “Pravda on the Merrimack” (aka, the outpost of the liberal MSM called the Concord Monitor) is as supportive of the Second Amendment as GraniteGrok is?  And THEY, the reporter and photographer, were then allowed to breeze past the hotel manager […]

If The legislature Added Ten Cents To The Price Of The Concord Monitor – Would That Be A Tax?

Thumbnail image for If The legislature Added Ten Cents To The Price Of The Concord Monitor – Would That Be A Tax?

Part of the dumbing down, or is it just the reprogramming of Americans, seems to be convincing them that just because your government makes you pay more for something that this is not a tax. It is a tax. When the state uses force (threat or risk of punishment for refusing to collect or pay […]

Where Is The League of Liberal Women Voters and NH ACLU?

by Ed Naile March 11, 2014

The paper in Concord claims to have found some disenfranchised voters! Ah, but as usual with NH election laws, the print media, and voting, the facts are not facts. One couple living in a seasonal campground has complained to a reporter about the Town of Henniker not letting them vote. They complain about an attempt […]

“Letter to the editor” – Concord Monitor The Monitor has recently published several letters and written a couple of editorials supporting Medicaid expansion in New Hampshire.
