GrokTALK! Who Will Lead The Rebellion!?

by Steve MacDonald December 18, 2014

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 […]

by Steve MacDonald November 5, 2014
Thumbnail image for Republicans Take NH House?

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 […]

GrokTALK! – The Politics of Access

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 […]

Lame questions, better answers

by Skip October 25, 2014

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).

Let’s pile on, shall we – Part II

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.

Jen Kuznizki (conservative writer) would fit in just fine around here… I’m mindful that the Democrat Party is really, really awful.  They try to get elected by saying their Republican opponent will take away the poor’s welfare and they’re a bunch of racist bigots.  But then, the Barbours in Mississippi on behalf of Thad Cochran […]

Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO’s True Blood vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a “Ted Cruz fundraiser. Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am […]

A Unified Party? For what – the same bogus line that Scott Brown fed Massachusetts voters?

by Kimberly Morin July 7, 2014

The Scott Brown campaign released a video today talking about ‘Unity’ of the Party and how he’ll be an ‘Independent Voice’ for New Hampshire.  Really?  Like he was an Independent voice in Massachusetts when he voted with Obama and Democrats (and AGAINST his constituents) more often than not?  Like when he voted for Dodd-Frank, crafted […]

The Heritage Action Scorecard is an excellent resource for measuring whether or not someone who is elected as a Republican is actually voting like one. It measures action against conservative principles to give a more realistic picture of a politician’s national platform mettle. Eric Cantor, for example–he who was just exorcised from congress by the […]
