    Union Leader (NH) ^ | April 17, 2015 | Dale Vincent
    MANCHESTER — The father of a Hallsville School fourth-grader wants the principal reprimanded, or fired, for allowing an anti-bullying exercise that asked students to curse in class. Keith Katsikis said he and his wife have pulled their three Hallsville students out of the school after they found out about the exercise he believes is inappropriate for children. Katsikas has started a petition calling for the firing of Hallsville principal Christi Michaud. He also sent copies of his letter to the school superintendent, school board members, the mayor, aldermen and the woman who presented the exercise. “I wanted to make sure...

    "...Mr. Walker is the top presidential choice for 24 percent of GOP primary voters, according to the poll out Wednesday from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. ....Mr. Walker was viewed most favorably by GOP primary voters; 57 percent had a favorable opinion of him, compared to 13 percent who had an unfavorable opinion.

    Two weeks ago, I noticed that national polling and noted that the media-fueled boomlet for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker might be fading. If that’s true, it’s a phenomenon that is not apparent in a recent poll of GOP primary voters in New Hampshire. The results of a new NH1 survey conducted by the Republican firm Reach Communications from April 8 – 9 suggests that Walker’s appeal to the Republican electorate in this critical Northeaster state continues to grow. The survey found Walker leading with almost 23 percent of the vote, well outside the survey’s 3.0 percent margin of error. Former...

The NH1 poll released Friday shows Walker, the Wisconsin governor, leading Bush, 23 percent to 17 percent – outside the margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. Paul, the first-term Kentucky senator, is at 15 percent.

    Opponents of the bill are fearful that making it easier to carry a concealed handgun will create a charged environment where gun violence could quickly escalate. Zandra Rice Hawkins, Executive Director of Granite State Progress, said that allowing for constitutional carry will simply gut already weak gun laws. "In New Hampshire, it is already easier to legally carry a handgun than it is to legally drive a car," Hawkins told the Union Leader."SB 116 would make that worse. It is reasonable to deny concealed carry permits to those who are a danger to themselves or others."

While the voters in the focus group say they would still back Clinton, they questioned whether the perception of secrecy surrounding the email account would hurt her and said that they supported a third-party examination of her email server to put the issue to bed.

    Constitutional carry is moving in New Hampshire.  The bill is SB116 in the Senate and HB582 in the House.  It passed the Senate on 12 February.  It was introduced by the Senate Majority leader.  Constitutional carry came within a hair of being passed in 2011.  Many believe that hamhanded tactics by the NRA representative killed the process.  In 2011, it had passed the House, 244 to 109.  Here is the analysis of SB116/HB582: This bill:I. Increases the length of time for which a license to carry a pistol or revolver is valid.II. Allows a person to carry a loaded,...

The first coyote attack on a human in New Hampshire occurred in 2012.  Ironically, the boy's dog ran off, leaving him to fight the coyote.  From inquisiter.com: The boy’s dog ran away when the coyote approached which left the boy to fend off the coyote’s attack on his own. After repeatedly punching the coyote in the nose, the coyote eventually...

When Breitbart News noted that the study is based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau and other government sources—and includes no data from non-governmental sources—her communications director Harrell Kirsten abruptly called an end to the press conference inside the local Democratic...

Scott Brown’s campaign, decried an effort by the liberal media to falsely smear Brown during last night’s final New Hampshire Senate debate against incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). “You know I think it’s unfortunate but in some cases moderators hope to become part of the story,” Romney said on Laura Ingraham’s radio program. “Obviously that furthers their career and makes a lot of people talk about them.

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) both voted for Senate Bill 744, which CIS calculated would have roughly doubled the number of new foreign workers allowed into the country and would have given legal status to millions of illegal aliens already in the country had the legislation been passed by...

    Brown is up 48.3 percent to Shaheen’s 46.8 percent in the poll of 1,132 likely voters statewide. The poll was conducted on Oct. 24, and has a margin of error of 2.91 percent. Dr. Wayne Lesperance, New England College's director of the Center for Civic Engagement, attributed Brown’s success to narrowing Shaheen’s lead among women voters. “A 1.5 percent margin is incredibly narrow and makes this race a statistical dead heat. Brown’s recent success comes from narrowing the lead Shaheen had with women to just under 5 percent,” Lesperance said. Shaheen has attempted to reignite the “war on women” rhetoric...

    If there's one person in New Hampshire less popular than President Barack Obama, it's Scott Brown. But that might not matter as he tries to unseat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in his new home state, by linking her to Obama, whose favorability and job approval remain at all-time lows. "It's really not a matter of either candidate's popularity. It's a matter of President Obama's popularity," said Andrew Smith, director of the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.

    If the New Hampshire race is like others in some respects, it is unique in at least one. Brown, 55, moved to the state to run. The race is his third for the Senate in five years. Shaheen, 67, is a known political commodity in New Hampshire. She was elected, to this Senate seat, in 2008 when Obama won the state. "She's won in a wave and lost in a wave," says former Rep. Frank Guinta, a Republican. "I think she's as susceptible as anyone is." That view — that even a well-established politician can lose if enough voters sour...

In the fall of 2013, the Pew Research Center found that only three in ten Americans trust the federal government to do what’s right ‘most of the time’. The self-conception of most Americans, with their visions of pioneers and plucky underdogs fighting for independence, is all about freedom. The flip side of that vision, however, is all about distrusting government. And ‘government’, in US political...

    The New Hampshire House could be voting on HB 1589 this Wednesday. This is a gun control bill that was written by out-of-state gun control groups as admitted by Democrat Representative Butler in sub-committee (see the video by Ken Park Jr.). There are no gun crime issues in the Granite State. As a matter of fact, New Hampshire has some of the lowest gun crime in the country – far lower than neighboring Massachusetts which has draconian gun laws in place. Democrats are pushing this unnecessary gun control bill based on outrageous lies. The following shreds some of their most...

    As Columbus Day weekend approaches and New England fall foliage reaches its peak, the U.S. Forest Service has decreed that 22 privately run campgrounds in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest will have to close because of the government shutdown. According to the Union Leader, while the campsites are situated on federally owned land, they are entirely run by a private company, which has a contract to operate the sites and which pays the federal government a cut of the fees it collects. That means the closure will not only prevent thousands of campers from using the facilities, it will...

    Photo by Dave Workman A mother needed to use the Internet to order items required by a minor emergency on the road.   Naturally, she turned to Starbucks. Starbucks has become known nationally for its neutral policy on the carry of firearms.  If you are following the law, Starbucks is willing to take your money in exchange for their product.  Here is what happened in a New Hampshire Starbucks as written by the mother it happened to, Riana, on opencarry.org: Here I am, minding my own business, sitting with my husband and son in the Starbucks on Main Street....

    The principal of Concord Carlisle High School is apologizing to parents about the school’s opening ceremony on Wednesday - the 12th anniversary of 9/11 - in which a Muslim poem was recited over the intercom but the Pledge of Allegiance was not. Principal Peter Badalament said in a statement to parents that the poem was meant to promote "cross-cultural understanding," and that the Pledge of Allegiance was not read because of a mixup with the student reader. The combination of the two has "outraged a small number of members of our community," Badalament said in an email to the Globe,...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz says the there’s a new paradigm in politics, one defined by the rise of young leaders and grassroots change. The Texas Republican brought the crowd to its feet a handful of times Friday night as he hit conservative talking points about tax reform, economic recovery and his goal to defund the Affordable Care Act. About 100 people came to meet and listen to Cruz as he headlined a fundraiser for the N.H. State Republican Party held at the home of former ambassador Joseph Petrone and his wife, Augusta. Cruz’s stop in New Hampshire comes after two...

    Recently, the Mayor of Dover NH, Dean Trefethen, has been asked to quit Mike Bloomberg’s Illegal Mayors against Guns (as the mayor of Nashua did), but has doubled down on his membership. He takes pride in standing alongside some 30 mayors arrested for crimes from bribery to buggery and back again, and pride in trying to stop “the epidemic of gun violence,” which in New Hampshire as well as the rest of America refers mostly to bummed-out losers whacking themselves (something that happens everywhere in the world where bummed-out losers despair about their miserable lives), and to criminal losers being...
  • NH:UPDATED: Manchester police say home invasion preceded fatal shooting at Lake Avenue apartment

    MANCHESTER -- A man shot and killed early Sunday morning at a Lake Avenue apartment had kicked open the door and rushed at the resident along with another intruder, authorities said Monday. Authorities said they have not charged the shooter, although an investigation continues. They would not identify the shooter Monday, but said the victim was Michael Larocque Jr., 24. An autopsy determined that Larocque died from a gunshot wound to the arm and abdomen, prosecutors said. According to homicide prosecutors, the apartment resident told police he armed himself with a handgun when he heard unknown people on his porch....

    Two very different pictures are emerging of what took place this weekend at a series of townhall meetings by Kelly Ayotte, the Republican senator from New Hampshire.Ayotte traveled back to the Granite State to meet with constituents, and among the topics that came up were her votes against new gun control measures. But local and national news media are giving sharply contrasting accounts of what really happened when the gun control issue surfaced.If you read about the meetings in the national press, you likely went away thinking the Republican lawmaker was overwhelmed by pro-gun control critics. You might think the opposite if...

    Before Congress enacts any new gun control laws, the nation’s law enforcement officers and courts should better enforce the regulations they have on the books now, according to U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte. In a meeting with the Telegraph editorial board, New Hampshire’s junior senator took aim last month at the national background check system, which does not go far enough prosecuting those who illegally try to obtain weapons, she said. "Of approximately 80,000 in 2012 that were denied (a gun) because of a background check … only 44 people were prosecuted for that," Ayotte said during the February 19 meeting.

    A New Hampshire police group that plans to raffle 31 guns in May received this offer from an alarmed critic of the giveaway: He would raise $30,000, buy all the guns, and bring them to his local police station to be destroyed. Another critic floated an idea to have the guns melted, turned into jewelry, and sold to help victims of gun violence. But the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police plans to proceed with the raffle, citing fears of a lawsuit from disgruntled ticket-buyers.
