  • The Russian Company That Is a Danger to Our Security

    MADBURY, N.H. ó The Kremlin hacked our presidential election, is waging a cyberwar against our NATO allies and is probing opportunities to use similar tactics against democracies worldwide. Why then are federal agencies, local and state governments and millions of Americans unwittingly inviting this threat into their cyber networks and secure spaces? That threat is posed by antivirus and security software products created by Kaspersky Lab, a Moscow-based company with extensive ties to Russian intelligence. To close this alarming national security vulnerability, I am advancing bipartisan legislation to prohibit the federal government from using Kaspersky Lab software. Kaspersky Lab insists...
  • Scott Brown Touts Trump Ground Game, ‚ÄėPhone Banks Humming‚Äô in New Hampshire

    Former Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown told Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon today he sees Donald Trump winning the New Hampshire primary with John Kasich coming in second and "Rubio right there in third." Brown previously thought Rubio would finish second. That was before New Jersey Governor Chris Christie banged the Florida Senator up pretty good in Saturday's Republican debate. Brown called Rubio "brilliant," adding that he considered him a good friend, but felt the cage match with Christie really hurt him. Asked about Trump's "ground game," Brown said he was confident the businessman has a good one...

    Former Massachusetts senator Scott P. Brown, a moderate Republican who two years ago ran for Senate in New Hampshire, will endorse Donald Trump at rally here Tuesday night, one week before the state's presidential primary. Brown's decision has been closely guarded for days, but it was confirmed by two people familiar with the event, where Brown will appear onstage with the candidate. When reached early Tuesday afternoon, the Trump campaign's spokesperson would not discuss the rally or possible guests. Brown was unavailable for comment.

    Man. Lotta 2010-vintage tea-party heroes are climbing aboard the Trump train these days, huh? First Palin, now this. Presumably Trump’s holding the Joe the Plumber endorsement in reserve for just the right moment.This is a decent get for Trump. Brown's move could give Trump a significant boost, one day after the mogul lost the Iowa caucuses to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Although Brown was defeated in his senatorial bid here, he has been popular GOP figure in New England ever since his stunning, come-from-behind victory in Massachusetts's special election to fill the Senate seat in 2010.Brown is also...

    Speaking to a crowd at a Portsmouth, N.H., rally hosted by Scott Brown on Saturday, Donald Trump said the former senator would make a ‚Äúvery good‚ÄĚ vice president. After Trump asked Brown whether he would consider running for public office again, a member of the audience floated the idea of a Trump-Brown ticket in 2016. ‚ÄúVice president ‚Äď hey, that sounds like it could, hey, hey, very good,‚ÄĚ Trump responded.

    "Donald Trump says that former senator Scott Brown, one of the most liberal Republicans, would make a great vice president. ....Why would Trump, who claims he has given up his New York values-based support for partial-birth abortion to become pro-life, consider a man for VP who is pro-abortion and so liberal on so many other issues? This is especially worrisome because Trump will have the opportunity, if elected president, to make several Supreme Court picks. What if he picks liberals for those, too? It was a bit unnerving when he said his sister, who is an extremely liberal judge, would...

    Donald Trump says that former senator Scott Brown, one of the most liberal Republicans, would make a great Vice President. Donald Trump said Saturday that Scott Brown would be a vice president straight out of "central casting." "You know what? He's central casting," Trump replied, nodding. "Look at that guy! He's central casting! A great guy and a beautiful wife and a great family. So important!" So who is Scott Brown? First of all, Scott Brown is a big loser. He filled the partial term of Teddy Kennedy, and was defeated for reelection in Massachusetts; then he carpetbagged over to...

    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) on Friday said Hillary Clinton's paid speeches to Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs are "in the past" and not worth delving into. "The fact is that's in the past," she said on MSNBC when asked about Clinton's past speeches to the banking firm. "They're done, so it doesn't matter whether or not you support that or not," Shaheen said. "[It is] just as Bernie's socialism - he claims - is in the past," she added of Clinton's chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. "The question is what do voters want to...

    At a rally in New Hampshire today, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen bragged about how Hillary Clinton handled and withstood the Benghazi hearings, getting a loud crowd response and thrilled laughter from Secretary Clinton, because what is more amusing an anecdote than answering for American casualties, am I right? "Eleven hours, Hillary was before that committee. Is there anybody here who thinks that anybody else in this race, Republican or Democrat, could have done what Hillary did? Not Donald Trump. Not Ted Cruz. And not Bernie Sanders!" Each time the crowd gleefully shouting back "NO!" as Hillary laughs it up. Hey Senator...

Former U.S. Sen. Bob Smith, R-N.H., who ran twice for the U.S. Senate in Florida, was named as a co-chair of Cruzís veterans outreach team on Wednesday. Smith joins U.S. Rep.

    The defunct mainstream media conveniently dropped news offerings on the huge scandals engulfing Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen, some of which surfaced just before the November, 2014 election fight with Senator Scott Brown (R-MA who moved to NH). Brown was up by a point and one half one week before the election! This weekís hearings on the IRS targeting of Conservative, non-profit 501 (c) (4) may be commendable; however, the damage has already been done. And once again, the corrupt tactics of the Democrats and their win at any cost methods paid off for Shaheen. ďMary Howard, IRSís Director of Privacy,...

    Popular Sen. Elizabeth Warren, still being urged to run for president, is calling Republican White House hopefuls Sen. Ted Cruz and front-runner Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker "scary," two potential presidents that could undo a decade of Democratic policies. "Just the thought of a possible President Ted Cruz or President Scott Walker is scary," she warned in an email to supporters. "But here's something even scarier: A President Ted Cruz or President Scott Walker with a Republican-controlled Senate Ė confirming extremist judges, repealing health care and financial reform, and rigging the system even further for the rich and the powerful," she...

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ó The first woman to serve as both governor and U.S. senator is backing a campaign to put a female face on the $20 bill. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen filed legislation this week that would create a citizens panel to recommend an appropriate choice to the treasury secretary. She is hoping to build on the work of Women on 20s, a national campaign pushing for new $20 bills by 2020, the 100th anniversary of the constitutional amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote.

    U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen shamed herself with a vote that no one in New Hampshire should ever forget. That day, to her eternal discredit, she voted against a bill to help sex trafficking victims - on the order of her biggest campaign donor. The bill was the Justice for Victims of Sex Trafficking Act. Among its bipartisan list of cosponsors are Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The bill would create a sex trafficking victim assistance fund, financed by revenue from criminal fines. Just before the bill was to come up for a vote, the abortion...
