Social media runneth over with discussion on the matter of Democrat elected Speaker Jasper (R- Hudson) and yes, the importance of getting along to get ahead.  Getting things done.  The need to accept things as they are is more important than sticking to principle–if sticking to principles rocks the boat. Without burdening you with a […]

by Steve MacDonald December 31, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Rules Change on Roll Call Votes is A Smoking Gun

One of the important debates in the shadow of Democrat elected Speaker Shawn Jasper’s (R-Hudson) ascension to the gavel is what degree of tolerance should conservatives have for Republicans disinclined to let the party platform temper their legislative passions.  Everyone had valid observations (in the email thread) up to a point but after reading a […]

We continue the discussion on messaging, the message RINO leadership sent when they voted for less transparency, why Alan Glassman wasn’t elected as a Delegate from Barnstead, some inside baseball on committee appointments, and more discussion about why some Republicans have such a hard time just voting with their own party platform. Listen to the […]

How would you like to take this news… House Republicans are also likely to try to modify the state’s Medicaid expansion plan, through legislation or the budget process. The plan ends in 2016 if lawmakers don’t reauthorize it. Hassan has said she’ll veto any proposal to end the law, and Democratic House Minority Leader Steve […]

Wink wink nudge nudge…

by Susan Olsen December 8, 2014

So what if the whole Jassper kerfuffle was just a head fake? What if the NH GOP RINO plan all along was to throw conservatives under the bus at the opening bell, disenfranchise them for the session and try to neutralize their expected opposition to McAyotte in 2016? And, on the home front,  riddle me this. […]

New Hampshire establishment Republicans hew to one principle and only one.  How do we keep the DC money spigot open and how do we keep the first in the nation primary. (Is that two principles?)  Nothing else matters to them.  They will abandon their platform, its principles, and any candidate that dares espouse them, for […]

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 […]

Email Doodlings: NH GOP Chair Jennifer Horn, show me where the by-laws prevent the NH GOP from vetting candidates?

by Skip October 14, 2014

It seems that Steve’s post about the 50 RINOs for Peggy Gilmore, the Democrat running for the NH State Senate and my quick thought flashlighting RINO Susan Emerson has provoked some email traffic and I got tagged into one.  The overriding question is “Why doesn’t the NH GOP vet its candidates” followed up by “an” answer, […]

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 […]

GrokBITE: Senate Republican Majority PAC –
Taking A Bite Out Of NH For Boutin!

by Mike August 17, 2014

As Kimberly Notes below**, the Senate Republican Majority PAC has made a complete ass of itself by spending about $5,000 on a multicolor flyer extolling the virtues of State Senator David Boutin. In so doing, they display the same lack of principles and self-control as the clown they are defending. I’m thinking that the icon […]

Notable Quote – Ol Remus

by Susan Olsen May 6, 2014

“The Forgotten Man, now as  then, is a beast to be burdened, something to  be bargained for, not  with.  In education and employment he’s commanded by the corrupt to stand aside for  the incompetent, the  improvident and perpetually needful, even  the criminal illegal. He’s embezzled by default and slandered in absentia. He’s the uncaring, unfeeling malignancy […]

Repeal It, Kill It, Gut It, Never Bring It Back

by Ed Naile April 1, 2014

The media pundits have declared ObamaDemocratCare “unrepealable” because it reached the phony milestone of trapping a couple million registrants who were kicked off real health insurance by ObamaDemocratCare. The idea behind this new media mantra is that the Republicans will adopt this lie as their own marching order into the next election and learn to […]
