I can picture the ruling class progressives telling a bedtime story to their one, adopted, Eastern-European, designer-child about the evil Koch Brothers and how they used their ‘dark-money’ magic to battle the brave Obama and his Knights of the redistribution round table.

The New Hampshire House Criminal Justice and Public Safety committee, in an act of what I can only imagine is revenge, are taking Rep JR Hoell’s HB 1264 and changing it into a study commission on gun violence.    That’s the commission the full house rejected when HB 1589 was amended to do just that. “The […]

The Progressive Background Check Bill – HB 1589 is Dead!

by Steve MacDonald February 12, 2014

HB1589, which would have added background checks to our background checks, failed in the NH House today. This is all due to the hard work of Grassroots activists, and we’d like to extend our thanks to them and the legislators who voted to kill this. And I’d like to give a special thanks to Minnesota […]

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 […]

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.

The local New Hampshire franchise of the Minnesota based radical left wing group Progress Now is living up to its mission statement;  24/7/365 progressive activism.  First it’s Newtown victims, then it is the Bloomberg bus, and now they’ve dragged Gabby Giffords to the Granite State in the latest in their series of high-profile efforts to […]

On House Journals And Shurtleff’s and Rollo’s And Progress Now

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2013

Rick does all the heavy lifting here on the addition of the Bloomberg Bus Anti-Gun Rally into the New Hampshire House Journal.  I think this might set a precedent that will have reps putting all kinds of crap in the journal that does not belong there.  I am not an avid reader of the document […]

Zandra Rice Crispy-Treats Hawkins (ZRCTH) was on WGIR AM 610’s Political Roundtable the other morning with Andrew Manuse, Andrew in Studio, Zandra by phone–a strategic move that allowed her to suck up all of Andrew’s time because Andrew (in my opinion) was too polite to just talk over her.  And Suck she did. But she […]
