With Republicans Like These…

by Steve MacDonald September 17, 2014
Thumbnail image for With Republicans Like These…

Back in July we were warning people about the influences of (so-called Republican) Bill Greiner (with much respect and admiration to the years of similar warnings that preceded ours). There are plenty of stories about Bill using his money and political influence to undermine Republicans for office in Bedford or elsewhere, so no one should […]

Every NH Progressive is a foot soldier in NH State Rep Petey Sullivan’s “Tolerance & Diversity” Army

by Skip December 3, 2013

Those NH Progressives – such a tolerant bunch – they love EVERYONE.  Nice to see that Peter Sullivan has marshalled them all behind him in the Democrat War On Women and Minorities and showing that they hate religion – see this Facebook entry by Sullivan? “Yeah, I said it, and I stand by it. The […]

You know, maybe DiStaso ought to leave the bubble more often…

by Skip October 21, 2013

His story on Kelly Ayotte had this line in it: Ayotte had been successfully straddling the line between Tea Party favorite and establishment Republican — until the shutdown occurred. This is pretty much the same level of “journalism” we see from a lot of these ink-stained (he’s old enough for that phrase) “reporters” lately when […]

Stupidest NH Headline of the Day

by Skip October 2, 2013

And the newly crowned owner of this dubious award (or, at least, the owner of  the byline to which it is attached) is John DiStaso of the Union Leader.  I’ve gone back and looked at it several times over the day, still scratching my head over it: NH still operating despite federal shutdown Was this […]

Ed Naile fills in for the third segment with an update on the hot topic of every week; Vote Fraud. We thank the Democrats for uncovering a potetntial Republican whose implicated voting history exacerbates the holes in our current “lack of enforcement” regime. Mike Brown, John DiStaso, Ray Buckley, Neil Kurk, Molly Shaheen, Sebastian Bradley, […]

NH Democrats Jamming The Phones in Colorado

Did you hear that the Manchester Paper has a story about NH State senator Jeb Bradley’s son voting in Colorado where he went to college – and by absentee here in NH? Well I did. And I was thinking, how did the “investigative journalist” at the Manchester Paper get that kind of info from an […]

Who Else Does UL “Investigative” Reporter John DiStaso Work For..?

by Steve MacDonald September 6, 2013

Investigative Journalist John DiStaso, Union Leader, has had a knack for “uncovering and reporting” potential evidence of Vote Fraud committed by family members of New Hampshire Republicans. He was all over Neil Kirk’s daughter, who has a New Hampshire’s Driver’s license, but never mentions if Jeanne Shaheen’s daughter Molly, whom he mentions as having voted […]

The Cat and Mouse Game of Voter Fraud in New Hampshire Has Many Twists and Turns

by Ed Naile September 6, 2013

Today I found out from an article in the Manchester Paper that there was another “investigation” into voter fraud by someone. Good grief!  The article I read doesn’t even say who investigated this example of voter fraud. Read on readers:  This time it was, again, a Republican being accused of voter fraud.  How interesting.  Here […]

John DiStaso – Investigative Reporter?

by Steve MacDonald July 31, 2013

John DiStaso highlighted Republican Neal Kurk this week, whose daughter travels back and forth from Hawaii but votes in New Hampshire.  There seems to be some effort on DiStaso’s part to suggest that this is inappropriate.  It might be, except for one thing.  When asked to do so Neal Kurk’s daughter can present her current […]

Whatsa matta John DiStaso, don’t like the ‘Grok much?

by Skip January 6, 2013

“As New Hampshirite Steve MacDonald notes, “this sounds like tyranny.” Given that Rush Limbaugh brought up NH Democrat House Rep Cynthia Chase’s name (AND STEVE MAC DONALDS!!) this past Friday, it was expected that the local NH media would be FORCED to also give a few column inches as well.  And DiStaso of the UL […]

This is what the prejudice and bigotry of a Democrat State Rep. can lead to:

by Tim Condon January 5, 2013

A possible threat to incite violence against an unfavored minority. Here’s the story:   Democrat State Rep. Cynthia Chase of Keene has recently displayed an alarming attitude of bigotry and prejudice against libertarians and conservatives who make up the Free State Project movement. Her comments have gone viral, and are being reported today in the […]

Yawn – Mainstream Media Reporter(s) lazily gets it wrong

by Skip May 9, 2012

Updated and bumped:  Well, another loyal reader caught another Union Leader reporter, Paul Feely, making the same lazy mistake (emphasis mine): The video shows what appears to be New Hampshire election officials handing ballots to unidentified men, who videotaped the exchanges with hidden cameras at polls in Manchester and Nashua. Plural: ballots, men.  I watched […]

What The…?

by Steve MacDonald November 19, 2010

Did anyone happen to notice the names bandied about in this Weeks Granite Status for the job of New Hampshire GOP state chairman? John DiStaso mentions Jim Bender again, who I was told is not as interested as people think (always subject to change depeneding on whom you are speaking to); Jennifer Horn–who is getting nudged by the more conservative/libretarian elements along with Ovide Lamontagne who was an early favorite with the new Republicans; and then there’s Juliana Bergeron and Jim Foley–both of whom are (as far as I can tell) from the Fergus Cullen wing of the party.
