Super-enfranchised Voters Have More Rights Than Legal NH Voters

by Ed Naile February 5, 2018

I was invited to North Carolina to attend a US Commission on Civil Rights hearing by Jay DeLancy of the Voter Integrity Project, a group CNHT has been associated with for quite some time. I had three minutes, as one of 40 speakers who also got three minutes, to make New Hampshire’s case regarding the disenfranchisement […]

Trans Activists and their Allies Continue to Lie about Discrimination in NH

by Kimberly Morin January 26, 2018

For the past few weeks, Freedom NH, funded by out-of-state millionaires in the LGBTQ movement, has been pushing sponsored ads on social media trying to convince everyone in New Hampshire that trans people somehow don’t have the same protections from discrimination as everyone else does. They’re lying. Just like they lied last year when pushing […]

Report: Drug Addiction, Overdoses and Fraud Increases in Medicaid Expansion States

by Kimberly Morin January 22, 2018

Today, organizations that make money as drug abuse treatment centers held a breakfast for legislators to urge them to continue supporting Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion.

NH Women’s March 2018: Same Hypocrisy, Ignorance and Hatred on Display as Last Year

by Kimberly Morin January 20, 2018

Today, left-wing organizations rallied together to hold another “Women’s March” in Concord. This year’s rally was vastly smaller than last year’s rally but the sentiments were the same. It seems the people in attendance simply hate President Trump and are protesting his mere existence, all while pushing their own political agenda of course. The organizers […]

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 […]

There Can Be No Indigenous People’s Day – The North American Continent Doesn’t Have Any

by Steve MacDonald December 28, 2017

A Democrat lawmaker has proposed legislation to follow Durham, New Hampshire’s lead and change Columbus Day to ‘Indigenous People’s’ Day. I’ve already offered my thoughts on the matter at great length so I won’t repeat those here. Instead, I will point out the most obvious foil. There are no Indigenous People in New Hampshire or anywhere else […]

NH Dems Continue to Ignore the ‘Pervasive Rape Culture’ in Their Own Party

by Kimberly Morin November 19, 2017

On Friday night, New Hampshire Democrats held their annual Kennedy-Clinton dinner. That’s John F. Kennedy, the womanizer and philanderer who brought prostitutes into the White House, not Teddy Kennedy who drove a woman to her death and then was revered by Democrats for decades. And Bill Clinton, the man who not only abused his power […]

Report That Declares Huge “Rise” in Hate Crimes in NH Leaves A lot of Details Out.

by Steve MacDonald November 17, 2017

New Hampshire Public Radio reported a surge in the number of hate crimes in New Hampshire for 2016. In sounding the alarm, they quote lower figures for previous years and link to a statement by the Anti-Defamation League not just decrying the rise but insisting that hate crimes are still under-reported. Sadly, no one takes […]

Remember Those ‘Climate Mayors’ Who Swore to Uphold the Paris Agreement?

by Steve MacDonald September 30, 2017

Earlier this year a group of mayors clung together in the name of the Paris Climate Accord. They insisted, wrongly, that the “treaty” was necessary and they intended to take action locally to support its goals. Some 379 municipal leaders signed on to Climate Mayors.org, which was all most of them ever intended. As a group, they […]

by Steve MacDonald September 13, 2017

The Democrat Party’s Declining Electoral Options in New Hampshire

by Steve MacDonald September 13, 2017

During Hillary’s failed presidential campaign the Democrat National Party, of which New Hampshire Democrat Ray Buckley is a Vice Chair, abandoned white working class voters. Recently, New Hampshire State Party Chairman Ray Buckley labeled rural and unregistered voters as white supremacists. I presume this means that he can not allow any of his candidates to pursue […]

We Will Never Win the Culture War if We Give Them an Unimpeded Run of the Field

by Steve MacDonald August 12, 2017

Jonah Goldberg provides a glimpse into one of the better reasons for perseverance at this often-thankless blogging hobby. It’s our frick’n culture too. I’ve been arguing for 20 years that conservatives need to give up on the idea that we should set up a “parallel culture” for the simple reason that it’s our frick’n culture […]

NH Fiscal Policy Institute Hides Good News Behind What May Not Even be Bad News

by Steve MacDonald August 8, 2017

In a recent report the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute (NHFPI) hems and haws its way through potential fiscal decline couched in “mights and maybes” and then (Surprise!) we get “substantially more” in paragraph four. While the preliminary accrual revenues for SFY 2017 show no growth over SFY 2016’s preliminary accrual numbers, the figures do […]

New Hampshire’s Most Hated Topic: God

by Steve MacDonald July 20, 2017

Here’s a dating app for you. It’s called Hater. It operates under the premise that people who hate the same things are more likely to form a strong bond. So much for NOH8, right, because dollars to doughnuts says the overwhelming majority of users are probably those enlightened, progressive, hate-filled inclusive diversity morons who preach a […]

They Said if We Did Nothing About Global Warming it Would Affect NH Tourism and They Were Right

by Steve MacDonald July 6, 2017

If you Google Global Warming, New Hampshire, and Tourism you’ll be “rewarded” with the history of Climate Cultist scaremongering on the subject. From snowless winters to impacted fall foliage, drought to deluge. There is no limit to the problems that inaction on “climate change” will cause the tiny state or the damage predicted for the local economy. […]

The Real Reason Democrats Don’t Want to Hand Over State Voter Data

by Steve MacDonald July 4, 2017

Democrats, not just here in New Hampshire, ignored years of spying and abuse of personal privacy under Obama. They did. Obama spied on you, me, your neighbors, the press, our allies, members of Congress, just about everyone. The Obama administration tried to get private search traffic and call record history. And while every government spies, Obama […]

On Paris The NH Democrat Delegation Sides With Big Oil

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2017

When Donald Trump announced his administration’s departure from the Paris Climate Accords the usual suspects came out and said the usual things. The Democrats, environmental left, and the media have been grinding their anti-Trump axes on this for weeks, all the while forgetting to mention how they are also siding with Big Oil. Big Oil does […]
