It Shouldn’t Take 20 ‘Seconds’ (To Keep Government Transparent)

by Steve MacDonald December 20, 2014

One the first things the Democrat elected speaker Shawn Jasper, the RINO’s and the Democrats (is that redundant?) in the NH House have tried to do is to make it more difficult to be held accountable for their votes.    They have proposed a rule requiring that at least 20 reps stand up to”second” every request […]

When blank votes, votes? Ask the ” Lauri Sanborn lieutenants”?

by Skip December 16, 2014

Hmmm, much afoot within the NH GOP haunted halls – or is that hunted halls?  Looks like the old Chinese curse of “May you live in interesting times” is of great import right now – and it seems that those that live here are sending us interesting tidbits on which to munch – more J’Ass’perism.  […]

Democrat elected NH House Speaker Shawn Jasper (see also Jassper) has some history with regard to dishonest tactics. This is from January 2012… Rep. Shawn Jasper testified yesterday, January 25, 2012 AGAINST House Bill 1571 “on behalf of the House Republican Majority office,” i.e., Rep. DJ Bettencourt.  Oddly enough the GOP leadership was the ONLY […]

We have been warning the Republican (voters) about its RINO infestation for some time now.  We said they needed to be dealt with.  They were not and now we’ve got RINOTOPIA.  But look on the bright side, we can blame Democrats for all of it – they elected Shawn J’ass’per, so no matter what he […]

Democrat appointed Speaker Shawn Jasper ‘s email – SPAMMING?

by Skip December 9, 2014

Too funny.  Upon receiving an email from Democrat appointed Shawn Jasper, Thunderbird (an email program from Mozilla) didn’t much care for it: TOO FUNNY!  Nice to know that even he shows that the Republican majority is getting under his skin with their recalcitrance to his “I AM SPEAKER” schtick and that it is really annoying […]

Democrat appointed Speaker Shawn Jasper has a lesson to learn in group dynamics

by Skip December 6, 2014

A curious reaction from him in the Concord Monitor on how he will “deal” and “unify” with dissenters within the Republican caucus – he’ll just order them around: On Tuesday, Republican House members will meet in a caucus to elect a state party committee member, who would in turn lead the body’s Republican majority, said […]

by Ed Naile December 5, 2014

During a time of increasing public cynicism, recognizing and honoring the treachery of our political leaders has never been more important.

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 […]

This is what happens when the NH GOP doesn’t vet its candidates – Shawn Jasper

by Skip December 4, 2014

And I blame Chair Jennifer Horn, the EBoard, Papa Smurf, and last century’s Republican leaders for setting the table for this absolute fiasco for happening. You caused a split in the caucus between Chandler and O’Brien and create that country lane that Shawn J(ass)per just sauntered up – with Deputy Dawg Shurtleff on one arm and Ray Buckley on […]

NH Speaker of the House: Not Shawn Jasper / David Hess but Bob Mead / Shawn Jasper?

by Skip December 2, 2014

Yesterday, we were hearing from sources that Shawn Jasper was shilling for David Hess to push aside Bill O’Brien even though the NH House Republican caucus nominated Bill O’Brien for NH House Speaker.  Turns out, with the letter below, that we were right about the coup, just off concerning the players.  Shawn Jasper was not […]

Yes, a lot of Democrats probably are telling Republican Shawn Jasper that they will “vote for him” for speaker.  But they wont. Democrats are not going to vote for Shawn Jasper because he has no chance of winning and his mere presence in the race gives them hope… Why? Jasper watering down the Republican vote […]

by JR Hoell December 1, 2014

Dear Gun Owner, I am troubled.  We thought that our Second Amendment Rights would be well protected when the Republican Caucus in the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted for Rep.
