GraniteGrok: Conservative? Check! ‘Grok: TEA Party? Check! Bill O’Brien supporters? Check! Mark Hounsell seeking out the ‘Grok as a platform? Hypocrite!

by Skip April 6, 2018

During the Womens’ Defense League of NH‘s annual Gun Rally, Mark Housell ( now FORMER candidate for US Congress in NH’s CD-1) actively sought me out (not hard to miss – ‘Grok hat on, camera in tow) almost as soon as a “late arrived) to have me do an interview.  We tried to do it right then but […]

But will conservatives admit and learn?

by Skip December 5, 2017

‘Grok friend John Hawkins (RightWingNews) has a column over at Townhall on 7 observations he’s learned during the last year.  I’ve put the first one up in its entirety as it shows a massive shift on how a lot of folks on the Right are changing their view on morality and politics simply because the Left […]

Do You Rely on We the People or Govt?

by Skip August 30, 2017

Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? – Tench Coxe,  The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788 “We are our own first responders,” –NRA instructor Bill Hodges The fact that it has to be said, that We the People should be a priority above and are preeminent before Govt, is a sad state of affairs.

Poverty – Only one way out

by Skip March 16, 2017

“Virtually everyone agrees that poverty is bad. But not everyone agrees on what should be done about it. In the video that follows, Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, explains that if we want to help people get out of poverty, there’s really only one way to do it. This ain’t that: “Getting things […]

This will get easier as the Left keeps taking their masks

by Skip February 21, 2017

Heh! Jeffrey Medford, a small-business owner in South Carolina, voted reluctantly for Donald Trump. As a conservative, he felt the need to choose the Republican. But some things are making him feel uncomfortable — parts of Mr. Trump’s travel ban, for example, and the recurring theme of his apparent affinity for Russia. Mr. Medford should […]

They just CAN’T leave ANYone alone, can they?

by Skip April 23, 2016

I am part of the Just Leave Me Alone Coalition – but the Left CANNOT stand anyone being outside of their notion of Collectivism.  It echos the mantra of Fascism as defined in Mussolini’s Italy in the 1930s/1940s: According to Benito Mussolini, this system politicizes everything spiritual and human: “Everything within the state, nothing outside the […]

GrokTV: PBS News Hour interviews Grokster Steve – The PBS News Hour version

by Skip February 9, 2016

I previously posted the full interview that Lisa Dejardins, Political Director for the PBS News Hour, conducted with Steve.  Her piece, talking about the different factions within the NH GOP in the run up to today’s primary, is here.  Steve’s interview, quite short, starts with some B-roll on the front end that they shot during […]

Need a short, pithy definition of Conservativism? This is BRILLIANT!

by Skip January 30, 2016

From US Senator Ben Sasse who points out, for the Progressives that have lost their way (and their minds) that America is not great because of its Government but because of Civil Society.  That would be the interactions of individuals who our Founders knew were the sovereigns and not a Monarchy, a Royal class, or […]

“12 Times the GOP Establishment Kicked the Conservative Base in the Teeth”

by Skip October 27, 2015

It isn’t just the Obama IRS that has been shafting conservatives when seeking non-profit status (and then the Obama DOJ now clearing Lois Lerner of any wrong doing – blaming it on incompetent management), or the Obama Labor department going after large Republican donor / entrepreneurs for “labor violations” or the FEC now targeting conservative […]

The Crony Capitalists at the US Chamber of Commerce LOVE Kelly Ayotte!!!

by Skip July 29, 2015

You’ve already seen the kissey-face political ads celebrating US Senator Kelly (R-NH) running on NH stations with the message of the US Chamber of Commerce NH NEEDS KELLY.  Methinks it is more for the Chamber than for NH.  But the Chamber is already going for her as no one has step to primary her as […]

Chariots of fire

by Susan Olsen July 6, 2015

“Recently I’ve been hearing a lot of conservatives saying things like, “It’s over. The left has won. This is no longer America. I’m not even going to celebrate the Fourth of July this year.” I confess this disturbs me. I expect feminists to squeal like hysterical little girls. I expect Social Justice Warriors to act […]

Are the Republican chickens coming home to roost?

by Skip July 1, 2015

From Erick Erickson at Redstate – he points out what a lot of us are thinking, that the fundamental transformation has taken root and a big part of it is the turning upside down and inside out of both our public policy (which WILL be enforced as YOUR new private morals (and what you have now be […]

“There’s a baby in that bathwater…”

by Susan Olsen April 8, 2015

“For conservatives who ostensibly venerate the Constitution, it is odd to see so many of them fail to acknowledge that proposing it’s complete revision undermines their political position dramatically. Displaying respect for the Founders’ ideals and creating the conditions whereby their work might be entirely demolished are mutually exclusive.” – National Constitutional Center [Header taken […]

Carlos Martinez, Constitutional Conservative, I have an answer for you! Ted Cruz to announce…

Last Sunday at Turbocam, Ted Cruz was asked by Carlos when he was going to announce his run for the Presidency – you can see the video here as Cruz was a bit out front (and coy) with his answer.  Well, we now have the answer  from the new GraniteGrok Twitter follower,  Ted Schleifer ( @TeddySchleifer […]

Get yourself some Bill O’Brien. Why?  Liberals will bleed out their eyes and spit on their keyboards in a demented race to refute anything this man says.  (And so will establishment Republicans.)

However, I bet that Presidents Dole, McCain, and Romney disagree with Senator Ted Cruz

by Skip January 13, 2015

I just don’t understand why, though… Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, reiterated Tuesday that he believes the GOP has a track record of failure when the party nominates a presidential candidate from the “mushy middle.” “There are a lot of folks in Washington who argue that the way Republicans should win is that they should […]

GrokTALK! – Drive the TEA Party Out?

by Steve MacDonald December 17, 2014
Thumbnail image for GrokTALK! – Drive the TEA Party Out?

GOP leadership gets fingered for playing at RINO King maker in the NH House. Was it all part of a plan to drive the grassroots out of the party? How does that affect elections? Does the establishment even care or are they content to hang on to enough power to horse trade for favors? We’ve […]

Jeb Bush, may I introduce you to two NH candidates…

by Skip December 16, 2014

No, seriously, with each passing day this sounds more like Huntsman II. But with lots, lots, lotsmore money involved. But before pursuing the presidency, Mr. Bush is grappling with the central question of whether he can prevail in a grueling primary battle without shifting his positions or altering his persona to satisfy his party’s hard-liners. In conversations […]

Wink wink nudge nudge…

by Susan Olsen December 8, 2014

So what if the whole Jassper kerfuffle was just a head fake? What if the NH GOP RINO plan all along was to throw conservatives under the bus at the opening bell, disenfranchise them for the session and try to neutralize their expected opposition to McAyotte in 2016? And, on the home front,  riddle me this. […]

Liberals vs Conservatives…

by Skip November 28, 2014

Like the cake shop owner that folks have raised over $230,000 to rebuild her store.  Yet, there are liberals out there that ARE defending the rioters.  They show their disrespect for others and their private property – and feel good about it. (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

What Is it That Liberals Are So Afraid Of?

Why are liberals so afraid of conservative women? “Now, I’m no reflexive Palin-defender, …But more than anything … I’m struck by how she causes people with progressive tendencies to lose their ever-living minds.“ I’m honestly wondering why, though. Why are we such a threat? Is it the power of our non-barren wombs? Is it the […]

Yes, Reince Priebus, that’s just about right….let’s talk price

by Skip August 8, 2014

Watching FoxNews “Special Report” is a staple for me – while it seems that they do try to report the news fairly straight up (yes, sometimes shaded a bit or bit more to the Right – let’s be honest here, as do the others shade (or in the case of MSNBC, leap) to the Left), it […]

Erstwhile 2016 Democrat Prez Candidate thanks Establishment Republicans for doing Democrats’ dirty work

by Skip July 18, 2014

Irony; Hillary Clinton thanks the Jr. Partners of the Democrat Party for doing the Democrats’ dirty work.  She knows EXACTLY – and GOP Establishment wing of the GOP can’t deny it as they made big deals of what they were going to do to Conservative and TEA Party candidates.  And more than a few cases […]
