    Senators aim to limit Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 06/29/20 03:19 PM EDT A bipartisan group of senators is trying to place limits on President Trump's ability to remove troops from Germany unless the administration is able to meet a slew of requirements. The proposal, spearheaded by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), would prohibit the administration from reducing the number of active-duty troops in Germany below 34,500 unless the Pentagon can certify to Congress that it is in the national security interest of the United States and would not negatively undermine European alliances or NATO....

    High school-educated, working-class parents aren’t capable of overseeing their own child’s education, a state lawmaker said last week. New Hampshire state Sen. Jeanne Dietsch, D-Peterborough, made the comment at a committee hearing last Tuesday while promoting a bill that would stop the state Board of Education from creating a new way of allocating high school graduation credits. “This idea of parental choice, that’s great if the parent is well-educated. There are some families that’s perfect for. But to make it available to everyone? No. I think you’re asking for a huge amount of trouble,” Dietsch said. Dietsch’s remarks represent a...
  • NH Child Care Providers Push Back Against ‘Impossible’ Regulations From Sununu Administration

    New Hampshire child care providers are urging Gov. Chris Sununu to reconsider regulations that many in the industry call unrealistic, even during the coronavirus pandemic. Since the Sununu administration released its original regulations allowing child care facilities to reopen, providers have been arguing that some of the restrictions are unworkable: limits on group sizes to 10 or less, having staff members wear masks or a washable cloth covering their nose and mouth “at all times while at work” — even while in break rooms with no other individuals present — and maintaining social distancing during meals. Chris Emond, a member...

    A Democratic politician in New Hampshire changed the Pledge of Allegiance during a recent meeting, saying “and justice for some” rather than “justice for all.” As reported by WMUR, Executive Councilor Debora Pignatelli was lambasted by Republicans when she made the change during a council meeting last week. . . . Other councilors and Gov. Chris Sununu said the Pledge correctly during a Wednesday meeting, but Pignatelli was heard saying at the end of it, “…with liberty and justice for some.” “I don’t say it all the time, but it has been clear to me since this coronavirus has started...
  • New Hampshire Democrat Touted By Joe Biden Says ‘Position Of the Female Vagina’ Is Why He Doesn’t Believe Tara Reade

    A New Hampshire Democrat said Friday that 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade’s story is not believable, citing the “position of the female vagina.” Democratic New Hampshire state Rep. Richard Komi tweeted Friday morning about his understanding of female anatomy, saying that he does not believe Reade’s allegations against the former vice president. Reade has said that Biden kissed her, touched her, and penetrated her with his fingers without her consent when she worked for him as a senate staffer in 1993. “Judging by the position of the female vagina, it will not be easy for anyone to...

    New Hampshire state Rep. Richard Komi, D-Manchester, has resigned amid backlash over his apparent suggestion that Tara Reade was "looking for attention" and would have had to have "cooperated" with former Vice President Joe Biden's attempt to assault her if her allegation were true. "Judged by the position of the female vagina, it will not be easy for anyone to just put their finger into the vagina unless their [sic] is some cooperation from the female herself. That is why I believe Tara Reade's allegations [sic] is false. She is looking for attention," Komi said on Friday in a now-deleted tweet. Sara Gonzales New...

The scholarships, which will be available to 1,050 on a first-come, first-served basis, won’t include the cost of room and board. With the COVID-19 pandemic and...

    A key Senate committee is vowing to press forward with its investigation targeting former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, despite logistical challenges posed by the global coronavirus pandemic. The probe, which Democrats vigorously oppose, has fueled tension among the Senate’s ranks, even breaking out into a rare and previously unreported verbal altercation between senators during a classified briefing. **SNIP** Democrats have said the investigation targeting Hunter Biden threatens the integrity of the 2020 election and undermines U.S. national security, saying it could aid Russian intelligence. The briefing also featured several back-and-forth interactions between senators, which is highly unusual for...

    On March 9, 2020, the Idaho Senate State Affairs Committee approved House Bill H440, a measure outlawing race-based affirmative action in state agencies, state contracting, and public education. The bill is currently on Idaho’s full senate floor for amendments. Once amended and signed by Governor Brad Little into law, H440 will make the Gem State the ninth to adopt a statewide ban on affirmative action. The other eight states are: California, Washington, Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, Arizona, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma. In most cases, measures to ban racial discrimination and preferential treatment were passed by popular votes on the ballot. At...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) turned down repeated requests from Bernie SandersÂ’ presidential campaign to appear at events promoting the Vermont senatorÂ’s candidacy in recent weeks, according to three people familiar with the discussions. After the Iowa caucuses, Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir asked Ocasio-Cortez to stump for Sanders in New Hampshire, according to the sources. The campaign prepared a model schedule to highlight the kind of popular support she would expect if she attended, one of the people familiar with the talks said. Ocasio-Cortez resisted the entreaties until a few days before the primary on Feb. 12. She ultimately spoke...

    DEMOCRATIC HOUSE UPSET. Democrat Kathleen Martins scored an upset victory Tuesday in a New Hampshire House special election in Hooksett. In the first state election since the New Hampshire primary, the self-described educator defeated Republican Elliot “Alu” Axelman, a member of the Hooksett Budget Committee and a supporter of the Free State Project, in the heavily Republican town to succeed the late Rep. Dick Marple, who died in December. The final unofficial vote count was 1,000 for Martins and 961 for Axelman.

    In this 1969 documentary of a seditious meeting of communists with the notorious communist and terrorist Walter T Howard CCCP of New York City, we see Bernie Sanders attending a meeting and a filming of a North Vietnamese communist film that portrays the communist viet cong as freedom fighters and the Americans as torturers and barbarians. This and other films were shown by student radicals and marxists as Americans were being killed by the North Vietnamese army and the VietCong and as Vietnamese civilians were being murdered, tortured, buried alive and extorted by the communists and their gangster protection schemes...

    CROYDON, N.H. — A New Hampshire town’s chief of police left town hall in his underwear after officials voted to dissolve the one-man department. “I was told that I had to turn over the keys to the cruiser and my uniform immediately. I had no other means of transportation, as the cruiser is a take-home vehicle, and I have no spare clothes in the office, so I did as ordered,” police chief Richard Lee told the Union Leader. Lee, who had worked nearly 20 years for the town, walked nearly a mile home during a snowstorm in a pair of...

    With their center’s collapse, Democrats’ only hope of reconstituting it is by redefining the center. As the Democratic primary race moves leftward, the definitions of their candidates are moving right. It resembles a play in which we are expected to accept that the same actors have become different characters simply because of a costume change. When the 2020 Democratic field was taking shape a year ago, its spread was straightforward. Former Vice President Joe Biden was the establishment anchor, in a center-left, front-runner position. A couple of candidates were to his right – Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and former Rep....
