NH Democrats Prove How Much They Hate Tax Cuts

by Kimberly Morin April 17, 2018

Today, Ivanka Trump and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin came to New Hampshire to talk about President Trump’s tax plan on “Tax Day.” The two were talking about the benefits of the tax plan that was put into place by the Republican-controlled Congress (not one of New Hampshire’s Democrat representatives voted for their constituents to […]

So, is Zandra Rice-Hawkins of Granite State Progress AND the NH Gun Violence Coalition going to denounce a guilty self-admitted violence perp?

by Skip March 11, 2018

“We have really lax firearms regulations,” says Zandra Rice Hawkins, executive director of Granite State Progress and a coordinator at the NH Gun Violence Coalition. “ No, we have Constitutional Rights there, Zandra.  You know, that pesky thing that keeps getting in your way. Oh, but it’s for the children, it’s for safety, it’s for….oh, never […]

Granite State Progress: Leave Kids Helpless and Unprotected

by Steve MacDonald March 2, 2018

Nationally funded Progress Now’s local left-wing affiliate, Granite State Progress, is promoting an event on Facebook called ‘Keep Guns Out Of Schools.’ No, they don’t mean “keep criminals with guns” out of schools. In fact, they are advocating for precisely the opposite. They are rallying support for a floor amendment to SB 357 that would allow […]

Just When you Think the Left Can’t get Any More Stupid…

by Kimberly Morin January 7, 2018

Along comes Zandra Rice-Hawkins of Granite State Progress (GSP) who says… “hold my beer.” This has got to be one of the more stupid things I’ve seen on the Twitterverse in a while. Clearly, Hawkins and her sidekick over at GSP have never worked in a restaurant or actually worked in customer service or with […]

The vitriolic hatred from NH Democrats MUST END before someone gets hurt

by Kimberly Morin June 17, 2017

Last week, a man from Illinois opened fire on Republicans practicing for a bi-partisan charity baseball game in Virginia. The man was obsessed with his hatred for Republicans, the wealthy and Trump all while professing his adoration for Bernie Sanders. The man had decided back in March that “Trump and Company must be destroyed.” The […]

Rally for Jerry – Skip Murphy of GraniteGrok

by Skip April 30, 2017

“How did we get into this mess?” I haven’t gotten out much this last year and a half and to be sure it was fun yesterday (don’t worry, Jeff, I took real good care of your equipment!) especially seeing faces I hadn’t seen in a long time.  It was also satisfying to see all of […]

Zandra Rice-Hawkins – leaving out the truth again.

by Skip February 5, 2017

A deliberate lie by omission, IMHO.  Here in NH, SB 12 (e.g., “Constitutional Carry”) is an anti-discriminatory law that would allow LAW ABIDING citizens, to lawfully conceal a firearm without the obligatory “Nanny Government, may I?”. Eleven States already have this in place – they TRUST their LAW ABIDING citizens to be responsible.  Vermont does, […]

Was Andru Volinsky’s Religious Discrimination against Edelblut actually ILLEGAL?

by Kimberly Morin February 2, 2017

We received this email from a reader and thought it was too good not to share. If you listen to the hearing, which you can find at NH1 News, you’ll see that Democrat Executive Councilor Andru Volinsky was actually persecuting Frank Edelblut for the religious beliefs of a college where he put an economics and […]

Zandra Rice Hawkins Plies Her Progressive Trade Against Frank Edelblut’s Nomination

by Steve MacDonald January 29, 2017

Susan Olsen posted this on Facebook. She credits it to Zandra Rice “Crispy” Hawkins at GraniteState Progress, New Hampshire’s out-of-state funded progressive mouthpiece for Progress Now the Democracy Alliance and the culturally bankrupt Alt-Left agenda. “P.S. A word of caution for New Hampshire educators: The current Executive Council has 3 Republicans and 2 Democrats, which means there is a […]

Heck, we ask the same of “immigrants to NH”!

by Skip October 25, 2016

You know, like Zandra Rice-Hawkins (head of that out-of-State-supported Progressive operative coven called Granite State Progress) or NH State Rep Cynthia Chase (transplant from Rhode Island). If you REALLY don’t like what our State motto (“Live Free or Die”)  really stands for, why the heck did you move here?  And I include all those others that […]

Greg Moore from American’s For Prosperity joins us at Liberty Forum to talk about White Chicken Chili, base line ‘shared principles,’ constructive disagreement, and the extreme idea that people should have control over their own lives, oh- and White Chicken Chili. We’ve also got Right to Work (passed in MN, failed in NH), as well […]

Who’s their daddy?

by Susan Olsen February 25, 2015

They cite themselves as a 501(c)(4) on the website.  So how come there’s no record of the tax-exempt girls over at Granite State Progress at the IRS Exempt Organization‘s list?

1923 – 2015: A proud tradition of discrimination and sexism

by Susan Olsen February 10, 2015

“…there is no reason to change it now.” – Zandra Rice Hawkins, Granite State Progress In her comments on yesterday’s discussion of SB 116 – “Constitutional Carry” – Miz Hawkins relies on 90 years of profiling folks to determine who is and who isn’t “suitable” enough to be allowed to discretely carry a loaded firearm.  […]

RINO Report Special Edition – Gibbering Jasper?

by Skip December 1, 2014

“If one, then many” – a phrase many of us heard over and over (if we have heard it once).  Like Steve said: As we head toward a new session it is important to know who the Democrats are in the Republican party. And so it is – where there’s one, there’s more!  Let’s us […]

Data Point – Voter ID approval in NH

by Skip June 15, 2014

I believe this shows that the EXTREMISTS on this issue are those that are against people showing ID before they vote – most NH residents approve of Voter ID: That would be people like the NH Democrat Party leadership (like Ray Buckley) and Progressive / Incremental Socialists (like Zandra Rice-Hawkins of Granite State Progress) that see […]

Guess Gretchen Gardner never met Mel Thomson: “Low taxes is the result of Low Spending”

by Skip June 5, 2014

“I’m at the breaking point,” said Gretchen Gardner, an Austin artist who bought a 1930s bungalow in the Bouldin neighborhood just south of downtown in 1991 and has watched her property tax bill soar to $8,500 this year.“It’s not because I don’t like paying taxes,” said Gardner, who attended both meetings. “I have voted for […]

OUR State Project: With Progressives, there’s no such thing as “Small Government”

by Skip May 26, 2014

Hilarious! You know, the posts almost write themselves: @ourstateproject Looks like it's the Granitestaters versus the Freestaters. Small Government versus No Government! — North_Of_Boston (@Charles_1944) May 25, 2014 But of COURSE, if your vision of Government is that it must be in charge of everything as Progressives believe, a pronouncement that they are for “small […]

Those crazy Progressives at GraniteState Progress are harboring their very own McCarthyesque “Liberty Menace” movement.  It’s called the “OUR State Project” and it’s like our very own little ‘Red Scare!’ right here in New Hampshire. They will be looking behind the bushes for anyone who exhibits personal responsibility or that dares to openly suspect that […]

Thanks To NH Labor News And Granite State Progress

I recently posted an article regarding the NH Labor news and whether or not they wanted to help fight voter fraud in New Hampshire?  They didn’t, but then they actually did.  Ed Naile to that very short list of the eight names gathered by out-of-state funded Granite State Progress and ran them up the “flagpole.”  […]

Zandra Rice Hawkins Doth Protest Too Much

by Steve MacDonald February 25, 2014

Zandra Rice Hawkins has taken a sudden concern with regard to political labels.  She thinks that recent AFP political ads in which the stories of two women who happen to be Republicans, should have made that clear up front.  OK. Zandra.  Who funds GraniteState Progress?  Where does the money come from to finance your war […]

Granite State Progress Speaks (Lies) On HB1589

“Anti-Gun Violence” Means That Democrats Are Anti-Gun, and Want More Violence

by Steve MacDonald September 3, 2013
Thumbnail image for “Anti-Gun Violence” Means That Democrats Are Anti-Gun, and Want More Violence

When the anti-gun violence polices you demand we implement consistently demonstrate that more people will be killed and more people will be killed by guns, and you leave that out of your “conversation about ant-gun violence,”  people should be suspicious of your actual intentions. And so you should be suspicious of OFA and Minnesota based […]

From the “Oops I Missed Your Faux-Outrage” File

Thumbnail image for From the “Oops I Missed Your Faux-Outrage” File

Unlike Zandra Rice Hawkins, I don’t get paid by a group like Minnesota based ProgressNow (with big progressive ATM’s in Colorado and Nevada) to be a political activist.  Zandra is also and or has been paid to be a lobbyist, creator of victims of violence (she is anti-self defense), and as an all purpose 24/7 […]

Obama: the Anti-President

by Skip August 26, 2013

Hugh Hewitt (talk show host, author, lecturer, lawyer) has a column in the Washington Examiner today: “Is Obama the worst president ever?” Since 1979 and the acquiescence of the transfer of Iran to religious zealots with world-enders and Hidden Imam-summoners among them, I didn’t think it was possible for an American president to be ranked […]

Has The New Hampshire Democrat Party Just Given Up The Race Card?

by Steve MacDonald August 13, 2013
Thumbnail image for Has The New Hampshire Democrat Party Just Given Up The Race Card?

In an effort to free themselves from the avalanche of evidence that out of state voters came to New Hampshire to “live” with local Democrats just long enough to vote for Democrats (before leaving to go back home to their own states and lives) New Hampshire Progressives may have just moth-balled their axe-grinding-public-perception-false-outrage narrative machine.

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 […]

State Law – Sure, you can have a DBV – Drive By Voting!

by Skip July 27, 2013

There is a joke in the software industry: Why is a consultant like a seagull? They both fly in, caw a lot, drop a load, and then fly off – and bring a whole flock back with them. DBV – is it legal? And if so, is it moral? And does YOUR vote count if […]

Additional Background Checks for NH? Put Up or Shut Up!

by Steve MacDonald July 11, 2013

I wanted to remind everyone that they need to ask every New Hampshire Democrat, in office or running for elected office, if they will be insisting on state legislation that adds another layer of background checks for legal gun purchases in the Granite State?  This should be a key element of their policy agendas.  And […]

Mayors Against Illegal Guns Has Ties to Money Trail That Leads to Progress NOW

by Steve MacDonald July 10, 2013

The money trail used by gun-grabbers and anti-second amendment liberal/progressive Democrats to buy influence and peddle failed out of state policy through groups like Granite State Progress is becoming a bit more clear. There has been a great deal of financial activity between a trio of deep pocketed Liberal anti-self defense groups.  Mayors Against Illegal […]
