  • Judge bars New Hampshire proof of residency requirement for new voters

    10/22/2018 7:06:55 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 31 replies
    (Reuters) - A New Hampshire judge on Monday put on hold a law requiring some voters to present proof of residency when they register, saying it would lengthen lines at polling places and make it difficult for students, disabled voters and others to cast ballots. The temporary injunction against the Republican-backed law comes two weeks before U.S. Congressional elections that will determine whether opposition Democrats or U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republicans retain full control of the federal government’s legislative branch. The measure, which passed largely along party lines and went into effect last year, required those seeking to register within...

    A 4-year-old Manchester boy is being called a hero after his grandmother stopped breathing on Tuesday and he called 911. Max Velez is being credited with saving her life, and this week, he was recognized for his actions. “I'm so proud because he's really shy, and I guess he was calm the whole situation,” said Fallon Clarke, Max’s mother. While Clarke was at work, he was home with his grandmother when she had a medical emergency. “Really extreme – she couldn't breathe,” Clarke said. “She couldn't get up, so really, Max handled the whole situation, they said.” Max said he...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Catalina Celentano used to hold training sessions for hospital workers in Lynn, Mass., to familiarize them with the cultures of patients from Cambodia, Russia and the Dominican Republic. When she moved to New Hampshire, she suddenly found herself in an ethnic vacuum. “I went from being able to speak Spanish every day to not speaking Spanish at all because there wasn’t anybody to speak Spanish to,” said Mrs. Celentano, who was born in Colombia to a Colombian mother and Hungarian father. “The only person I spoke Spanish with was a cleaning lady and she moved back to...

    A fiercely contested bill to make residency a condition of voting in New Hampshire was determined by the state Supreme Court to be constitutional Thursday, in a major ruling that clears its approval by Gov. Chris Sununu. In a 3-2 ruling, the court found that the bill, House Bill 1264, is not a burden on the right to vote, but rather a means to better organize state laws “in order to place voters and residents on equal footing as New Hampshire citizens.” The court’s decision, which came without warning, now sets up a high-stakes choice for Sununu. On Thursday afternoon,...
  • New Hampshire Becomes Fourth State to Require Work for Medicaid

    The Donald Trump administration approved New Hampshire’s waiver, becoming the fourth state to implement work requirements for Medicaid. New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said in a statement on Monday: Work requirements help lift able-bodied individuals out of poverty by empowering them with the dignity of work and self-reliability while also allowing states to control the costs of their Medicaid programs. They help people gain the skills necessary for long-term independence and success. Sununu added, “Today’s announcement by CMS authorizing New Hampshire’s Medicaid work requirements is a transformative step towards a more thriving workforce.” New Hampshire became the fourth state...

  • Democrat Phil Spagnuolo Wins NH State Special Election For 38th Flip Since Trump's Inauguration

    Democrat Phil Spagnuolo won a special election in New Hampshire's Belknap County District 3 on Tuesday night 968-841 (54%-46%). It is the 38th state legislative flip from Democrat to Republican since President Trump's inauguration. The contest for this state House race pitted Spagnuolo, a substance abuse recovery coach, against Republican Les Cartier, a former employee at the state fire marshal's office. The seat was left open after the death of Republican State Rep. Donald Flanders last September. Donald Trump won the district by a sizable 54-41 margin in 2016, four years after Barack Obama carried it by just one point,...

    A Merrimack County jury awarded three Manchester-area businessmen $274.5 million in their lawsuit against mortgage kingpin Michael Gill, who accused them of drug dealing and other crimes on prominent electronic billboards and social media viewed by millions. Steve Gordon, an attorney who represented AutoFair owner Andy Crews, Manchester developer Dick Anagnost and Primary Bank founder William Greiner, said it is believed to be the largest personal injury verdict in New Hampshire. "The bully has finally been punched in the mouth, which is what we wanted to do for a long time," Crews said at a press conference outside the Merrimack...

    Exclusive – Kobach: It Appears That Out-of-State Voters Changed the Outcome of the New Hampshire U.S. Senate Race(Full Title) For years, the mainstream media has ignored the problem of voter fraud and belittled those of us who are trying to do something about it. And when secretaries of state like me identify cases of fraud, we are told that the number of incidents of voter fraud is too insignificant to matter. Now, however, facts have come to light that indicate that a pivotal, close election was likely changed through voter fraud on November 8, 2016: New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate Seat,...

    The Womens Defense league of New Hampshire (WDLNH) celebrated the New Hampshire passage of "permitless" or Constitutional carry with their third annual Gun Rights rally. The celebration was held on the Capitol steps in Concord New Hampshire on 4 March, 2017. The weather was sunny but cold with a wintry, gusty, wind. It was a dedicated group that gathered on the Capitol steps, with temperatures a few degrees above zero, and winds that gusted to over 40 mph.  They had much to celebrate. After years of difficult work, the state legislature had restored rights that had been severely infringed...

    Governor Chris Sununu has signed SB12, the "permitless" or Constitutional carry bill for New Hampshire in a signing ceremony.  The ceremony was held at 10:30 Eastern time, today, 22 February, 2017. From Governor Sununu's facebook page: Signing #SB12 into law is a commitment I made to the people of New Hampshire. I am proud today to fulfill that commitment. Similar bills were vetoed twice by former Democrat Governor Maggie Hassan.  Hassan left the Governor's mansion to become a U.S. Senator from New Hampshire. The bill passed with solid margins in the Senate, 13-10, and in the House, 200-97. Here...

  • NH: Democrats Propose Voter Suppression for Second Amendment Practitioners

    Gun Watch ^ | 25 January, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    A bill has been introduced into the New Hampshire legislature. It is designed to suppress the exercise of the Second Amendment and voting. The bill to discourage Second Amendment practitioners from voting is HB350. It is unlikely to pass in Second Amendment friendly New Hampshire. It shows the Democrat mindset to suppress the votes of people they disagree with. The bill requires that people who are going to vote divest themselves of their Second Amendment rights while they are voting.  In New Hampshire, no license is required to carry a firearm openly; it is fairly simple to obtain a...

    The New Hampshire legislature has passed permitless "Constitutional carry" both of the last two years. Both times the bill was vetoed by Democrat governor Maggie Hassan.  Now, early in the session, the New Hampshire Senate has passed SB 12-FN.  It had five Senators as sponsors, Senators Abard, Birdsell, Carson, Daniels, and Gannon.  It passed the Senate with a healthy 13 to 10 margin, defeating two attempts at amendment, on January 19, 2017. In 2016, the New Hampshire House passed the Constitutional carry bill 206 to 146. New Hampshire is bordered on the East by Maine and on the West...

    Perhaps New Hampshire should change its license plates to read: “The Too Little Too Late State.” It was declared on Monday that Hillary Clinton had won New Hampshire, just six days after losing the White House to Donald Trump. Clinton’s win means that there is only one state — Michigan — that has yet to declare for either candidate. It appears Trump holds a slight advantage in Michigan but the votes remain too close to call. In winning New Hampshire Clinton also picked up its 4 electoral college votes, bringer her total up to 232 and making Donald Trump still...

    A few dozen voters have taken advantage of midnight polling locations in New Hampshire, kicking off Election Day 2016 in a key battleground state. Three polling locations allowed voters to cast their ballots right at midnight, and reported the results just minutes later. Out of the 64 ballots cast, 32 went to Republican Donald Trump, 25 to Democrat Hillary Clinton and 3 to Libertarian Gary Johnson.

    Apparently conspiracy talk show host Alex Jones has offered $5,000 to people who can get on television for shouting “Bill Clinton is a Rapist”. Yesterday, it happened in Keene during the Bill Clinton speech: Jones’ challenge appears to be working, as the Keene Sentinel,... The two men who interrupted Clinton’s speech by repeatedly shouting the phrase, went on to discuss some of the sexual assault allegations against him. Kudos to the brave, unknown activists who smartly shouted out near the media riser, so it was easy for the cameramen covering the speech to focus on their interruption.
