Scarlett Overkill: GOP vs The TEA Party

by Mike July 28, 2015

I’ve observed many times that the party establishment in NH has been willing to go to any length to clear the decks for Kelly Ayotte’s re-election next year – NO controversial figures will be suffered at any level in the party! Willing to skate around the Party platform to promote “agreeable” candidates, willing to throw […]

Trump

by GrokWatch News Desk July 23, 2015

Kathy Dunton | GrokWatch News Desk I am sure to tick off many of my fellow conservatives with this one, but here it goes… It was very exciting a couple of weeks ago to hear him say pretty much what every American is thinking. But now, as they say, he is sucking out all the […]

From (my hero) Mark Steyn McCain was projecting with respect to poor old Pete Domenici. Forty years ago, John McCain was a war hero. Since then he’s mostly been an a**hole. The problem is you can’t out-a**hole Donald Trump. McCain is in the Superbowl of a**holery and hopelessly outmatched. He was doing a**holery-as-usual last week, […]

2016 Presidential Primary – Donald Trump – another musing (quick)

by Skip July 19, 2015

I am no fan of John McCain.  Yes, GraniteGrok “fought” for him back in 2008 but it was more against Obama (who we knew back then that he’d eventually start acting like he has the last few years – his Communist / Muslim background demanded it just as much as a leopard cannot change its spots). He […]

Conservative Review provides a running score for legislators in Washington DC and it will come as no surprise to conservatives or Libertarians (or the attentive independents) that New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte’s Score from Conservative Review is 41%. She got an ‘F.’ So who scored the best?

Old Lady Running for President… Time To Dust Off The Age Jokes

by Scott Morales June 14, 2015

It’s now officially official, old lady Hillary Clinton is running for President.  Perfect.  Now I just need to dust off and update these once  perfectly acceptable age jokes.  I’m sure they’ll still be just as appropriate and well received when applied to an old lady Democrat…right? Check out these goodies reported by the Times (updates […]

Liberty Wins the Day

by Tom June 1, 2015

At midnight, the Patriot Act provision, which granted the NSA permission to bulk-collect private phone metadata of law abiding American citizens, expired. Law abiding citizens.   Presumption of guilt.  Probable cause.   Sound familiar? When was the last time you can remember Congress doing something, actively or passively, to reduce the scope, size, and power […]

Speaking of “Incumbents like weeds” – This survey on Kelly Ayotte is interesting…with implications

by Skip December 9, 2014

So, it comes down to this – how is Kelly Ayotte going to vote?  Is she willing to bet her seat to fulfill her campaign promise to NH Voters? As a wise lady has pontificated: “What if the NH GOP RINO plan all along was to throw conservatives under the bus at the opening bell, disenfranchise […]

The arrogance of Walt Havenstein

by Tom July 6, 2014

There’s been a lot of talk about Walt Havenstein lately.  No, not because he’s a candidate for Governor.  Of course, video recently surfaced where he makes an insulting comment about the Tea Party – the very people he purports to respect and hopes (needs) to have vote for him in the coming September primary. My […]

I dream of Jeannie Shaheen too – and it’s a nightmare.

by Skip August 11, 2013

Once again, WMUR’s Closeup – this week’s edition where Shaheen was the subject of two of the three segments.  I listened and just have to make some comments She makes the claim that the Senate has passed more bills than the House.  Actually, the House has passed more bills than the Senate, but I guess […]

Disqus Doodlings: Ol’ Spudhead vs Big Ben (And Rand Paul)

by Mike June 10, 2013

ConservativeByte.com quoted Senator John McCain as saying that the Boston Bombing proves that Rand Paul was wrong, and we need all the protection of the Patriot Act and the surveillance state to keep us safe. Many readers disagreed with his premise, some vociferously, and I added my own mini-rant, in which I posited: We need […]

FiliBusted: Republican Goats And (Temporary) Democrat Heroes

by Mike April 12, 2013

Courtesy Chris Cilizza at WaPo, we have the vote count from today’s epic Senate #FAIL. We note with interest that Mitch McConnell was as good as his word, and did NOT vote to bring the bill to the floor, whereas Kelly Ayotte, riding in McCain’s sidecar was convinced that it was “outrageous” to make life […]

A warning to the GOP….Grow or Die

by Tom March 17, 2013

NRA President, David Keene, hits the nail square on the head when he says that the Republican Party MUST change, if it plans to survive. He calls Rand Paul a “hero to grassroots Republicans” and John McCain an “aging former Presidential candidate of the old establishment”. Are you listening, Senator Ayotte?  You should (you were […]

It’s Hard To Hire Good Help In Washington

by Mike March 2, 2013

They call it “growing in office” when a conservative Republican gets in the groove down there in DC, and starts to vote the “right”way. After all, Trent Lott (in)famously said in 2010: “We don’t need a lot of Jim DeMint Disciples….. As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them”! Especially when candidates […]

One could only hope – she’d learn to shut her yap

by Skip February 13, 2013

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he would “feel not only comfortable but proud” if he had a daughter serving in a front-line combat position in the U.S. military. “I have a son in the military, I have another that’s a navy pilot, I have another one who served in the Marine Corps, and I would […]

I really hope that Kelly Ayotte, BFF with John McCain, is not playing this game

by Skip January 7, 2013

Captains Quarters on the incipient Gun Control activities by the White House and the “set up” in Congress (emphasis mine): They want to turn hunters against the NRA and modern sporting rifles. Fat chance. That didn’t work out so well for David Petzal or Jerry Tsai. Their plans to divide and conquer the NRA will […]

Does Palin Still Owe McCain?

by Steve MacDonald May 8, 2010

I have to wonder if Mrs. Palin Still feels an obligation to John McCain, and if it’s going to be a problem for her conservative supporters in the future.  NRO’s "The Corner" grabbed a message of Sarah’s facebook page in which she endorses Carly Fiorina for the California Republican Primary to challenge Senator Barbara Boxer.  Carly has […]
