House Rep Frank Edelblut synthesizes the path to legislative success (and failure?) in under ten minutes; your caucus (your party) needs a vision, and then a legislative strategy to achieve it, but reality is often something very different. (And yes, I forgot the stingers before and after…) Learn more about the 603 Alliance at http://603Alliance.org […]

A topic of much discussion today on GrokTALK! were the recent remarks by NHGOP Chair Jennifer Horn.  She fired up the GOP unity bus (see attached video for J-Ho Go Team! Rah-Rah from the Rockingham County Republican Dinner just last Weekend) and publicly backed it over Congressman Guinta.

The Republican and Democrat hypocrisy over Frank Guinta’s FEC issue

by Kimberly Morin May 21, 2015

If you live in New Hampshire and breathe air, you probably have heard about Representative Frank Guinta’s FEC issues. They have been ongoing for the past 5 years and the FEC just decided this week that Guinta violated their laws and will have to pay back the money he put into his campaign and pay […]

Democrats think you are SELFISH if you want to KEEP more of your own money

by Kimberly Morin April 1, 2015

While torturing myself listening to this morning’s painful budget session in the House, I also was watching Twitter. You wouldn’t believe (actually you probably would) the Democrats and ‘gimmie, gimmie’ more tweets that are being put out there.

‘Constitutional Carry’ passes in NH Senate along party lines

by Kimberly Morin February 12, 2015

Today Senate Bill 116, aka “Constitutional Carry”, was voted on by the full senate. Despite the majority of their constituents wanting them to pass SB 116, Democrats voted how their party leaders told them to vote and voted against it. Senators who were already getting railed for being sexists provided more ammunition today (that deserves […]

Get yourself some Bill O’Brien. Why?  Liberals will bleed out their eyes and spit on their keyboards in a demented race to refute anything this man says.  (And so will establishment Republicans.)

With as much as two-thirds of Republicans wondering why they bother, and no one in the media standing up to help, who will take the bit and lead them into battle against the crumbling principles of the GOP? We’ve also got an idea to make being a legislator more accessible to more people in New […]

Democrats already whining about the Speaker THEY elected

by Kimberly Morin December 11, 2014

Newly elected NH House Speaker Shawn Jasper announced his Chairs and Vice Chairs for Committees today.  Before they were all announced, former New Hampshire Democrat Party Chair Kathy Sullivan was whining that it was a ‘boys club’.  This is beyond amusing since it was DEMOCRATS who elected Jasper.  The majority of Republicans did not  vote […]

On Amnesty The GOP Can Beat The One With His Own Cudgel… If It Wants To

by Scott Morales December 5, 2014

… and the stakes are huge with a giant upside, as well as castrating downside. But first, do the establishment Republicans even want to fight amnesty?  The reason I ask if the crash of rinos in DC want amnesty is simple (beyond the cheap labor for cronies motive),  I believe it’s an easy fight to […]

Did the NH Senate give birth to the “Speaker Scam” in the House?

by Kimberly Morin December 5, 2014

In what was often an insanely frustrating (the live feed kept going down) and sometimes amusing election for Speaker of the House on Wednesday, Republican Representative Shawn Jasper was elected as Speaker by a majority of Democrats. The majority in the Republican Caucus voted for O’Brien. If you recall, the Republican race for Speaker was […]

It has become apparent that Shawn J-ass-per has done a deal with the Democrats to be speaker.  While a vote to promote him to the position has not yet succeeded (updated- it just did), the deliberate effort to punk-the-vote so it would open the floor to nominations, Democrat Stephen Shurtleff’s then dropping out (leaving J-ass-per […]

It looks like the Republicans will take the NH House with a healthy margin. There are more than a few races not called that I can find on my own, and there will be recounts but the GOP has well over 200 seats based on late night numbers. I’m sure someone somewhere will correct me […]

We had one Democrat in the NH House from Merrimack, who managed to get in on Obama’s 2012 coat tails…or something.  This year she got smoked.  In fact, the entire Democrat ticket in Merrimack got smoked. Get rid of Union RINO Kathy Stroud in the primary- Check! Get rid of left-wing rubber-stamp Democrat Grady–Check! I […]

Plenty of topics in segment one, as always, but you can’t run away from the theme; the folks who stand on principle are the bad guys while everyone else capitulates and tries to cover it up by claiming it’s bipartisan.  Should we pronounce it like Courtesans? Then there’s Jebola, this weeks Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, angry […]

I guess Pindell is having an off week – scanning through his questions of the week, I was rather disappointed with the offerings.  Oh well, c’est la – go with what’s there, laying on the street. Will Republicans come home to Scott Brown in the final week or sit on their hands? Oh sure: Will […]

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).

This from Erik Erikson at RedState – more indication that the Republican Wave may turn out to be a drip (reformatting (some) and emphasis mine): Throughout primary season, the National Republican Senatorial Committee in alliance with groups like the Chamber of Commerce and Main Street Partnership have treated the Republican base as their enemy.
