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 […]

Let’s pile on, shall we – Part II

by Skip August 27, 2014

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.

Incessant Cries for Unity

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 […]

Data Point – Republican Kelly Ayotte, this Amnesty chart is for you

by Skip June 15, 2014

My US Senator, Kelly Ayotte, campaigned hard against granting Amnesty to illegal aliens – a stance that sits very well with the base here in NH.  Now, 4 years into her term, she has gone hard Left on the issue – Amnesty is GREAT for Republicans!  If the debacle of Eric Cantor primary loss, in […]

The Heritage Action Scorecard vs. New Hampshire “Republicans”

by Steve MacDonald June 11, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Heritage Action Scorecard vs. New Hampshire “Republicans”

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 […]

Bob Odell endorses Scott Brown – Does anyone care?

by Kimberly Morin June 7, 2014

The Scott Brown campaign sent out an announcement that retiring Republican Bob Odell endorsed him today.  Does anyone actually care?  Bob Odell is the squishy Republican from District 8 in New Hampshire that voted for Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion (which will bankrupt New Hampshire) and who is pushing banking lobbyist Jerry Little (a guy who is […]

Citizens for a Strong NH is releasing a series of Radio ads directed at NH State Senate Republicans. “Senators Jeb Bradley, David Boutin, and Nancy Stiles have consistently tried to pull the wool over their constituents’ eyes.

You could do a lot of good with a growing economy that results in a state with a nearly Billion Dollar Surplus.  Meanwhile, here in New Hampshire, Democrats are already spending that Medicaid Money and looking for new taxes.

Women who carry firearms and are encouraged to learn how to use them have a significant advantage over those who have been disarmed by pro-rape Democrats and their Republican abettors.   Weight, strength, even numbers are no guarantee that a woman is an easy target for sexual assault.   She is no longer just another victim.

“Shhh….be quiet…..don’t make waves……go with the flow…”

I’ve seen this movie before…Pass Amnesty or Obama will do it anyways

by Skip March 14, 2014

That would be Blazing Saddles (1974), one of the funniest movies of all times (and due to its Political Incorrectness, could never be made today).  And what US Senator Chuckie Schumer said to Republicans was effectively what Cleavon Little did as Sheriff Bart; when threatened to be killed by others, Bart took his own pistol […]

The Failure of Veteran Senate Republicans

by Tom March 4, 2014

I’m wondering why some of our veteran Senate Republicans are jumping on the easy track to fixing the so-called Medicaid expansion “problem”. Republicans are supposed to lean toward market based, economic oriented solutions and away from entitlement-based fixes, which ultimately our grandchildren, not us, nor the aging Republican Senators (who feel the need to “do something“), will pay for.

RLCNH Pledge to Stop Obamacare in New Hampshire

by Tom February 27, 2014

  The Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire (practically the only NH Republican caucus worth paying attention to), has put together a pledge, for candidates and officer-holders, to declare their commitment to helping stop Obamacare, a “gateway drug to socialism in the Granite State“, in New Hampshire, which could also mean an income tax for us […]

If NH Senate Republicans would like to do some more math on just how much that best-case scenario 10% is going to cost their New Hampshire constituents over the long haul, (Democrats don’t care, by the way) they might want to factor this in as well. c/o The Daily Caller Using government data, in his […]

“Those arrested include operators of home care agencies, operators of nurse staffing agencies, office workers and personal care assistants. One woman is accused of bilking taxpayers out of $75 million.” Fraud is a major factor in Medicaid.  Expanding Medicaid will only expand the fraud.   The irony in this is that Medicaid expansion is part of ObamaCare […]

DC Republicans caved: talking “Limited Govt” but giving up on “Unlimited Spending”

by Skip February 12, 2014

What are we doing? Why are the leaders of our party—the party that is supposed to stand for balanced budgets and fiscal sanity—giving up on the fight? Why did our party’s leadership essentially caucus with the Democrats in order to work against us? 2010 was the year that the TEA Party fed furor over the […]

Notable Quote – Brent Bozell

by Susan Olsen February 11, 2014

“Time and again, year after year, the Republican leadership in the House and Senate has come to grassroots conservatives, and Tea Party supporters pleading for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes. In return they have repeatedly promised not just to stop the liberal assault on our freedoms and our national […]

Rumor has it that the NH Republican majority Senate is ready to dust off Republican sponsored SB 120, and push it through the legislature.  The democrats could not be happier. SB 120 is a bill that redefines what a committee is, and what classifies as an expenditure for the purposes of political speech.  And it […]

Data Point – Another reason why Republicans poll so badly

by Skip January 15, 2014

From Gallup: So, We the People think Government is “the worst of all evils” (thanks, General Stark!) as we continue to lose freedoms (the power to choose for ourselves).  Obamacare is taking our choice away in the area of healthcare.  Dodd-Frank (financial sector) is now starting the nationalization of the banking sector (more on ObamaLoan […]
