    Gregg Allman, whose hard-jamming, bluesy sextet the Allman Brothers Band was the pioneering unit in the Southern rock explosion of the ‘70s, died Saturday due to currently unknown causes. He was 69. As recently as April 24, reports surfaced claiming Allman was in hospice. His manager previously denied those reports to Variety, which Allman then substantiated in a Facebook post. However, he had suffered a number of ailments in recent years — including an irregular heartbeat, a respiratory infection, a hernia and a liver transplant — and cancelled many scheduled tour dates in recent months due to undisclosed health reasons.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Consumer electronics chain hhgregg Inc. is going out of business and shutting down all its stores. Founded in 1955, the retailer had 220 stores in 19 states selling major appliances like washers and TVs, as well as computers and home theater systems. As of May last year, it had about 5,000 employees. Just days before announcing its bankruptcy protection filing last month, hhgregg said it planned to trim down by closing three distribution centers and 88 stores. But the move was not enough to salvage the chain.

    DOVER — One national columnist has speculated New Hampshire's own Judd Gregg, who recently retired after three terms in the U.S. Senate, is considering a run for the presidency in 2012. Jonah Goldberg, editor-at-large of National Review Online, cites the Republican as acting like he's not running "but hasn't ruled it out." As Gregg's term wraps up and the holidays approach, no one is available to take calls at his offices throughout the state and in Washington, D.C. The listed phone number for Gregg's home in Rye has been temporarily disconnected, according to a recording. Republican Strategist Mike Dennehy said...

    I have told you this before and I will tell you this again. Unless you elect Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Ken Buck, Ron Johnson, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Sharron Angle, and Joe Miller, we will never see Obamacare repealed. Senator Judd Gregg is up today saying that repeal is not recommended. Sen. Judd Gregg (N.H.), the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, said that repealing the new healthcare reform law — or looking to defund it — were not good options. “I don’t think starving or repealing is probably the best approach here,” Gregg said on the Fox Business...
  • Lessons From Failed Cold War Spy Mission in China

    Detail by painful detail, the CIA is coming to grips with one of the most devastating episodes in its history, a botched cloak-and-dagger flight into China that stole two decades of freedom from a pair of fresh-faced American operatives and cost the lives of their two pilots. In opening up about the 1952 debacle, the CIA is finding ways to use it as a teaching tool. Mistakes of the past can serve as cautionary tales for today's spies and paramilitary officers taking on al-Qaida and other terrorist targets. At the center of the story are two eager CIA paramilitary officers...

    The Senate has rejected an effort to prevent the federal government from rescuing states or municipalities facing a financial crisis. Republican Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire offered the proposal as an amendment to a broad financial regulation bill. Gregg said federal taxpayers should not have to bail out states that fail to be fiscally responsible. Several states face budget shortfalls, with California leading the way with deficit estimated at $19.1 billion. Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, made an impassioned defense of the government's responsibility to provide aid if necessary.

    Goldman Sachs | May 18, 2010
    [A]n amendment just filed yesterday from Sen. Gregg (R-NH) on state/local bailouts [...] would prohibit the use of federal funds to purchase or guarantee obligations of, issue lines of credit to, or provide direct aid to any state or local government which has defaulted or is likely to default absent federal assistance. This would explicitly prohibit Treasury assistance, and would prohibit the Fed from purchasing, guaranteeing, or taking as collateral any obligation of a state/local govt that has defaulted or is likely to (the Fed can currently buy investment grade state/local debt with a maturity of up to 6 months)....

    The White House is set to step up pressure on some key Republicans in hopes of winning support for comprehensive immigration reform. But it’s shaping up to be a struggle, based on interviews with the senators President Barack Obama has approached on the issue. The administration is starting with a pool of 11 Republicans who voted for immigration reform in 2006. Subtract a few who are dead-ends — such as John McCain, who faces a tough primary in Arizona — and that leaves the White House zeroing in on several others, including Dick Lugar, Judd Gregg and Lisa Murkowski and...

    TARP: The OMB director is grilled over the misuse of bank bailout funds for purposes other than intended by Congress. This taxpayer money wasn't intended to be the administration's perpetual slush fund. When the specifically targeted and named Troubled Asset Relief Program was enacted, we were told it was a necessary and wise investment. It would stabilize the financial system and keep credit and money moving. We would even get our money back and then some. Many banks didn't want the money or need it. Some were told to take it or they'd be audited. So they took it. The...

    On the soon-to-be canceled ‘It’s the Economy’ program on MSNBC on Thursday, co-host Contessa Brewer grilled Republican New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg on his calls to reduce out-of-control government spending: “Which programs are you willing to cut? Are you willing to tell schools, no money for you?” Gregg shot back: “What an absurd statement to make. And what a dishonest statement to make.” Gregg called out Brewer for her unfair framing of the issue: “...nobody’s saying no money for schools....On it’s face you’re being fundamentally dishonest when you make that type of statement.” He went to explain the kinds of...

    Here is video of Sen. Judd Gregg calling out an MSNBC Anchor for their "irresponsible statement." (Video)Sen. Gregg told the anchor that she was "misrepresenting" his proposals as "not doing anything for education." Gregg said, "that statement alone is the most irresponsible statement I've heard from a reporter probably in a month, and there's a lot of irresponsible statements made by reporters, and that was the most irresponsible I've heard." The reporter then claimed that she meant it as a "question" and not a statement. Sen. Gregg replied, "you can't be duplicitous about this, you can't make a representation and...

    A top Senate Republican lashed out against lawmakers of both parties for supporting legislation that would audit the Federal Reserve, accusing the bipartisan group of “political pandering” to populist anger. Sen. Judd Gregg, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, says he’s worried that politicians on Capitol Hill are sacrificing the Fed’s historic independence because the Fed has become unpopular during the economic crisis. “This move to bring the Fed’s conduct of monetary policy under the control of Congress is a grave threat to our economy. Congress has demonstrated time and again its inability to manage the nation’s fiscal...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) – A leading fiscal mind on Capitol Hill and a one-time Obama Cabinet pick sounded the alarm Sunday over the projected long-term financial challenges the country faces. “This deficit is driven by us,” New Hampshire Republican Sen. Judd Gregg candidly said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union when asked about the federal government’s projected $1.42 trillion operating deficit for the 2009 fiscal year. “You talk about systemic risk. The systemic risk today is the Congress of the United States,“ the Ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King, “that we’re creating...

    HEALTH CARE affects each person in our country on a personal level. Here in New Hampshire, and throughout our country, families are worried about whether they will be able to pay for routine care, such as doctor checkups or prescription medication, not to mention how they would pay for unexpected large medical costs, such as a life-threatening illness or injury. They are concerned about how to afford staying healthy, or how to cope with medical bills that could bankrupt their families.
