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 […]

Hey! Dufus! Why the Hell Aren’t You Covering “This!?”

by Steve MacDonald February 12, 2013

Shawn Millerick, the head of the political fiction section at NH Journal, wanted to know why we at GraniteGrok were not covering the real world story about Ann McKluster Kuster not paying her property taxes.  The appropriate response was to provide a link to the story I actually wrote on February 5th about how Ann […]

Staphylococcus at NH Journal?

by Steve MacDonald January 24, 2013

NH Journal appears to have developed the flesh eating variety of the “staph” infection, and it looks serious.  It has already claimed someone’s balls. The castrated scribbler in question–see also “Staff Reporter”–has written a nifty little attack piece in which they observed that Jack Kimball had endorsed Andrew Hemingway for NH-GOP Chairman. The endorsement is […]

Talking? Shouldn’t you ask your Boss about “talking” to people first?

by Skip December 11, 2012

It seemed semi-coincidental that after I put up the posts on the NH GOP E-Board angst (I and II, with a side dish here) that I had a tweet sent my way by Kerry Marsh: My take is that both Jim Foley and Steve Duprey DID their talking (in either a series of emails to […]

Jennifer Horn – Is She Wishing She was “Someone Else?” (Updated and Bumped)

by Steve MacDonald December 11, 2012

Well, ain’t this sweet? NH Journal, you remember them, Shawn Millerick, Pat Hynes…they specialize in political fiction.  Well, I guess they had a poll asking who should be the next Chair of the NHGOP. The NH Journal Poll has the following results: Who should be the next Chair of the NHGOP? Andrew Hemingway (59%) Someone […]

NH Journal – hey, here’s a Journalistic clue for you, Millerick

by Skip December 1, 2012

Shawn, a word of advice for you (worth every penny you will pay for it) as it seems it passed you by the first few hundred times.  My post (and Steve’s) point out a fundamental flaw that even an elementary schooler (if not schooled at a Government school in the classification of “In Need Of […]

NH Journal – Shawn Millerick: stooge for the Gnome of the North

by Skip December 1, 2012

Well, I guess that the battle will now be joined.  Shawn Millerick is a partner / friend with Pat Hynes (a former friend and co-host in “Meet The New Press” radio show that was the number one talk show in the NH Lakes Region) in NH Journal (and other activities) decided that NH Journal was […]

NH Journal – I Have A Question

by Steve MacDonald December 1, 2012

Pat Hynse flunky and NH Journal editor Shawn Millerick went to bat for the progressive (r)epublican establishment the other day by fabricating a secret meeting, with a select guest list, for the purpose of agitating the voting members to support the anointed NHGOP chairman of choice, Jennifer Horn–because hey, we have to come together and […]

There’s a poll going on over your favorite for NH RNC Committeewoman

by Skip March 8, 2012

So far, there are two running for the position (as Phyllis Woods decided not to run for re-election): Pam Tucker or Julianne Bergeron.  If you are a regular reader of the ‘Grok, you know that we backed Jack Kimball for NH GOP Chair over the John (“Gnome of the North”) Sununu backed Juliana Bergeron. The […]

Would You Rather Just Play Politics?

by Steve MacDonald January 29, 2011

Yesterday NHBR.com (New Hampshire Business Review) included GraniteGrok in its content. One of it’s staff writers or editors (there is no by-line) commented on how the GOP establishment was not the only one taking shots from their right. The Union leader, NH Journal, and Red Hampshire–which the author refers to as “those in the GOP media world”–are now in the sights of GraniteGrok and their sometimes paranoid always angry Groksters.
