  • NH GOP is Soul Searching in Election's Wake

    New Hampshire Union Leader ^ | November 10, 2018 | Kevin Landrigan
    CONCORD — Republicans are doing some serious soul searching in the wake of a disastrous midterm election last Tuesday in which first-term Gov. Chris Sununu was the lone prominent survivor. Sununu is New Hampshire’s first Republican governor since the Civil War to be reelected but have the Democrats holding all other levels of influence in state government. Every single Democratic governor over those 150 years has presided over a divided government at some point in their term. In the days following the election, the finger-pointing and blame game was already in overdrive. Former Senate Majority Leader and lobbyist Bob Clegg...

    The midterms weren't a blue wave, but they weren't shark fin soup for Republicans either, given that they lost the House by a small margin. That said, the big loser who stands out here is hard-campaigning President Obama, the guy who thought he was the star of the Democratic Party and who, throwing the tradition of former presidents staying aloof from politics out the window, campaigned hard, long, and loud, for Democrats in this midterm. Turns out the ones he fought the hardest for lost. Now he stands exposed as politically irrelevant, powerless, an embarrassment. Sorry 'bout that legacy thing,...

    What is a pre-existing condition? This is strictly an insurance term that was created to characterize a particular health condition a person applying for insurance may have. The vast majority of people have pre-existing conditions. They may range from migraine headaches or chronic acne to multiple sclerosis or breast cancer. Historically, insurance companies went through a process known as underwriting, which meant they assessed the health conditions, current and past, that the applicant experienced. The cost of the insurance policy was based on the perceived risk and exposure of the insurance company. In some cases, the risk was so great...

    State, local, or federal election, it makes no difference, VOTE REPUBLICAN The Democratic playbook is not playing well in Peoria these days. We the People are hip to the Lefts tactics to an astonishing degree. When we are called racists we yawn, when we are called xenophobes we shrug, and when we are called deplorable virulent dregs of society we turn away in scorn. We collectively say to the Leftist elites Fk you and the horse you rode in on. Get a life, you frigging parasites.

    KAIT) - A woman whose boyfriend was shot and killed during Thursday's robbery of a Brookland vape shop told investigators she knew he was going to rob the store, but said they were "broke and needed money." Kory Taylor Kampmeyer, 25, of Bassett appeared in Craighead County District Court Friday where Judge David Boling found probable cause to charge her with aggravated robbery, a Class Y felony. According to the court documents, she said her boyfriend, 25-year-old Billy Carl Raines, had been talking about robbing places in Jonesboro because they were broke and needed money. On Thursday, the couple drove...

    hen the Christine Ford saga finally ended with the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a lot of truth had distilled out, along with the evaporation of prior pretensions and misconceptions. The hearing confirmed that the traditional JFK/Hubert Humphrey Democrat party, as once envisioned by a Bill Clinton, Gary Hart, or Jim Webb, is long kaput. In its place is being birthed a hard-left progressive movement that absorbs the ideologies and methodologies of its base and that now incorporates all sorts, from Ocasio-Cortezs socialist hipsters to Black Lives Matters, Antifa, and Occupy Wall Street protestors.

    I didn’t expect it to feel so much like Christmas, but Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court Saturday really was like finding everything you wanted under the tree. It was a combination of winning and who lost that made it so sweet. The Constitution won, and the party of the whiny, screaming, hate-filled, violent mob was roundly defeated. In that sense, the country won. On an individual basis, there were many more winners and losers.The Winners:Brett Kavanaugh. He’s on the Supreme Court. While his name was smeared by shameless Democrats, he held strong and stood up for himself and...

    Conservative commentator and outspoken "Never Trump" critic Bill Kristol says he is building a "war machine" within the Republican party to challenge President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign, according to CNBC. Kristol told the network that he's preparing "for a primary run against Trump," adding that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is on his shortlist of possible candidates. Kasich was unsuccessful in his 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, only managing to beat Trump in his home state. Kristol also said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) are also being considered. We are thinking of and...

    Ive spent most of my adult life producing theater in New York City. In that time, on more occasions than I care to remember, only 20 people showed up in the audience when Id hoped for hundreds. I thought of that with a smile yesterday watching the maybe two dozen sad white nationalists hold their rally in Washington. I know how bad that feels, the Public Address system and stage you paid for mocking you. Jason Kessler and his gang more than deserved it, but you can see why they assumed they were going to sell out. The going narrative...

    President Trump is looking into revoking the security clearances of several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday. During the daily press briefing, Sanders told reporters that the president was considering taking away clearances for former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former Director of National Security Michael Hayden (who worked under President George W. Bush).

    Republican advertisers are really stupid. They are plenty of video, articles, etc. that crazy and unhinged leftists have said and done since 2016 that they can use against Democrats if they want to win in November. Look at this video from James Woods, a crazed soy boy leftist jumping around screaming "No Trump, No Pence". It's sad and funny at the same time.

    **SNIP** Todays indictment confirms every aspect of the DNCs and Crowdstrikes account, with one exception. Both the DNC and Crowdstrike have said repeatedly that they went public only after expelling all the Russian hackers. But buried in the new indictment is language suggesting that Crowdstrike missed a spot, and one computer infected with the GRUs malware remained on the DNC network until in or around October 2016. If Muellers right, it raises the possibility that the Russians gathered months and months of additional intelligence on the DNCright as the campaign was in its final, most important stretch. The hackers may...

    The fuming, unhinged liberals at MSNBCs Morning Joe on Friday came completely unglued as they compared Donald Trumps voters to Nazi's and the President himself to madman Kim Jong-un. It began with Mika Brzezinski proclaiming that President Trump will forever be remembered as the president who traumatized little children. She continued by comparing him to the bloodthirsty tyrant Kim Jong-un who has killed his own family, he traumatized them for his political gain or to look like Kim Jong-un." Brzezinskis absurd comments were followed by Donny Deutsch who went as far as condemning the close to 63,000,000 voters of Donald...

    Crocodile tears are flowing from Democrats and their allies in the Democrat Media Industrial Complex (DMIC) over the Trump administrations enforcement of immigration laws signed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1997, followed by then-President Barack Obamas decisions and policies. Immigration laws are a function of every country on the planet. Otherwise, why have borders? Which is something Democrats would apparently prefer not to have or enforce. Because they want a recurring wave of new underclass voters, dependent upon the state for all their needs. Illegal aliens fit that description perfectly. The latest salvo in the immigration imbroglio stems from...

    Some 22.3 percent of fatally injured motorists who were tested for drugs tested positive for marijuana in 2016, a figure that researchers say has "increased substantially" in recent years as states have legalized the drug for recreational or medicinal use, according to a new report. The finding, in a study released Thursday by the Governors Highway Safety Association, was one of several regarding the growing prevalence of drugs in vehicle fatalities. The report also found that 44 percent of drivers killed in automobile accidents in 2016 who were tested for drugs tested positive for one or more substances a...

This time, the perpetrator is the heiress apparent to the Clinton Crime Family, Chelsea Clinton.

    Editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, predicts Democrats will win back both houses of Congress in November, causing Republicans to turn against President Donald Trump. I think the chances of Democrats winning both houses are pretty good now, Kristol said Wednesday on MSNBCs Morning Joe. Its obviously important if Democrats win the House and/or the Senate and changes the dynamics for the next two years. But the day after election day for Republicans, something you and I have talked about a lot, Joe, is very important. Thats the moment where Republicans stop justifying the vote in 2016 for Donald...
