Oh, She’s Back – Donor Class Beware

by Ed Naile January 21, 2016

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump for President yesterday and the usual crowd again proclaimed, “big deal.” I asked myself why she might needlessly jump into a primary where she knows and is friendly with several of the combatants. Very little of what I heard Rush Limbaugh refer to is easily found on […]

Rubio-Gowdy: Donor Class Peas In A Pod

by Mike December 30, 2015

The endorsement that proves Rubio is what we suspected, and shines an unwelcome spotlight on the less-than-conservative positions taken by his new endorser, Trey Gowdy. Breitbart News examined some of Gowdy’s markedly Establishment positions and ties to Boehner, Ryan, and the Donor Class, and in so doing really undermines the value of his endorsement outside […]

by Mike November 12, 2015

There was a heckuva turnout for Ted Cruz’ filing at the State House this week, and a couple of history lessons, too – I like the way Secretary Gardner did not just deliver his usual short history of the First In The Nation primary, but also referenced an earlier visit by Rafael Cruz, talked about […]

The Clintons and Shaheens, to borrow a phrase, have always been thick as thieves in the night–so this comes as no surprise, ‘Hillary Clinton coming to Portsmouth to accept Shaheen  endorsement.’ This so called news report fawns over Clinton and Shaheen. Its embarrassing. So it would never ask the question: “If Shaheen were up for reelection […]

Dear Representatives: “There Is No Alternative!”

by Mike December 3, 2014

The Left will always tell you who they fear, and make no mistake, they FEAR Bill O’Brien: They campaigned against him – and lost seats; they fundraised off him – but the GOP did better; they wailed about his potential return – and the GOP caucus voted for Bill anyway! It is that fear, on […]

In The Tank With The DC Establishment,
Ayotte Sinks As She Endorses Brown

by Mike May 26, 2014

I get party loyalty, I especially get the Senate code (which is suspiciously like Omerta), whereby one sitting Senator will never attack another of the same party (unless it is the Establishment attacking its TEA party members). What I don’t get is blind loyalty to a FAILED Senator, one who could not even beat LieAwatha […]

  I support Marilinda Garcia for NH’s Second Congressional District seat 110%. She’s a social conservative – but, I would judge, pragmatic on libertarian issues – leans libertarian but only leans.

Whose War On Women?

by Tom July 27, 2012

Yesterday, Steve wrote about William Jefferson Clinton coming to Nashua to endorse Maggie Hassan.  In it, he showed Andrew Hemingway’s 4RG video of the endorsement, where Clinton messed up and used Jackie Cilley’s last name (the other candidate!).  There is simply no good explanation or excuse for this. Democrats around the state are now trumpeting the magnificence of […]

Endorsement: Andy Sanborn for New Hampshire State Senate District 9

by Steve MacDonald July 19, 2012

There are fundamental problems with the way the New Hampshire government conducts its business, from the glut of agencies, the redundancy, inefficiency that has grown over the years, and the inability to coordinate information that was built into the system, not out of forethought or malice, but simply because that is how disparate empires grow […]
