    New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate race was decided by little more than 1,000 votes in November, while the spread between the top two presidential candidates was fewer than 3,000 votes.While 458 potentially fraudulent votes aren’t enough to have changed the outcome of either race, the questionable votes prompted an investigation by the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office and legislation to reform the state’s same-day voter registration.“It’s not enough to change the result of the national level races, but it could impact state or local races that are often decided by just one vote,” New Hampshire Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan...

She is the first graduate of the Air Force Academy to hold the service’s top civilian post.

    An assistant principal at the prestigious Downingtown STEM Academy has been placed on paid leave after being video-recorded cursing at two teenage anti-abortion protesters on school property, telling them that aborted fetuses were “cells,” that he was gay and didn’t “give a [expletive] about Jesus," and then loudly singing "I Love a Parade," apparently to drown out the pair. On April 21, Zach Ruff, 40, dean of academics and student life, confronted the protesters while cars were leaving school at the end of the day. Connor and Lauren Haines, brother and sister, do not attend the academy and are thought...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden insists he is not making another presidential bid in 2020, despite giving a rousing speech to New Hampshire Democrats about restoring dignity to politics and winning back working class voters. Biden returned to the state on Sunday to honor the nation’s first all-female, all-Democratic congressional delegation at an annual state Democratic Party dinner. He was joined by U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, and U.S. Reps. Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter. “We know now you’ve finally earned the title Granite State, because you have four women running the show,” Biden told the crowd. “Amazing...

    California's secretary of state is backing a push from state lawmakers to make its presidential nominating contest the third in the nation. Legislation offered by Democratic state lawmakers seeks to move California's from June to shortly after Iowa and New Hampshire's presidential primaries. "A state as populous and diverse as California should not be an afterthought. Moving up the California primary in 2020 makes sense and will give California voters a more significant role.

    Not every good thing in life needs to be funded by the federal taxpayers. And removing federal subsidies for arts programs will not mean the death of art in America. Yet recipients of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts would have you believe that cutting $719,000 in federal spending on New Hampshire arts programs would crush painting, sculpture and music in the Granite State.

    (CNN) – The White House press secretary tried to twist a cap on reporters' questions Tuesday about the Trump team's alleged ties to the Kremlin. "If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that's a Russia connection," Sean Spicer said. Thing is, Russian dressing isn't Russian. The mayo and ketchup concoction -- often dressed up with horseradish and spices -- was created in Nashua, New Hampshire.

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Republican-backed election law bill is drawing criticism for a provision that says local police might visit people’s homes to verify they are legally eligible to vote. “This is a very hard thing for the League of Women Voters to watch, an attempt to change voting laws based on unsubstantiated claims and fears of widespread voter fraud,” Liz Tentarelli, president of the league’s New Hampshire chapter, testified Tuesday during a public hearing on the Senate bill. The bill aims to put stricter scrutiny on people who register to vote on Election Day or within 30 days...

    The mostly swamp media (MSM) are so good at gaslighting many people lose sight of the big picture. There is not a day that goes by so far this year when CTH doesn’t look back at the calendar and say: “Wow, a year ago today”…. and start the day with a big grin. A year ago today the New Hampshire Primary was about to take place. A year ago today we had not yet had a primary win… A year ago today it was a campaign against all odds. Today, slightly less than a year later, we have President Donald...

    A daughter and granddaughter of slain black nationalist Malcolm X have been charged with stealing a rental truck that was found in southern Maryland carrying seven pit bulls in what police described Friday as inhumane conditions. Malikah Saban Shabazz, 51, of Berlin, New Hampshire, and her daughter Bettih Bahiyah Shabazz, 19, of Stark, New Hampshire, were released in Charles County on Thursday after posting bond of $2,000 each, according to online court records. The records do not list defense attorneys, and calls to the women’s possible telephone numbers were either not answered or not returned. The women were arrested Wednesday...
  • Proposed change in sexual assault statute called 'pedophile protection act'

    01/23/2017 9:18:26 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 19 replies
    CONCORD — A proposal to change state law regarding evidence in sexual assault cases amounts to “nothing more than a pedophile protection act and rapist shield law,” according to Concord Police Detective Sean Ford. But the sponsor of House Bill 106, Rep. William Marsh, R-Wolfeboro, says no one should be charged, let alone convicted, solely on the basis of an alleged victim’s testimony with no other corroboration. The two men took turns at the witness table on Tuesday, as the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee heard nearly four hours of testimony on a bill that would require the...

    New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan appeared to be unaware during a Senate confirmation hearing on Tuesday that a Washington Post story about Russian hacking into the Vermont power grid has been completely debunked and retracted. “Two weeks ago The Washington Post reported that a hacking group connected with the Russian government managed to infiltrate the Burlington Electric power company in Vermont,” Hassan said to retired Marine Gen. John Kelley during his confirmation hearing to head the Department of Homeland Security. Hassan, who took office this month after serving as governor of New Hampshire, showed no indication during the questioning that...

    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...

    Am I looking at old data here? I'd been hearing Trump 306 pretty regularly, but not seeing that around the web. Seems everybody that I look at have him at 290. Also, the popular vote. Today, I've started to see posts on Facebook claiming DJT also won with popular vote. Now, yeah, could be erroneous, but I just wanted to ask if 1.) there is anything to this popular vote win claim? 2.) Where is a reliable place to find the 2016 Presidential Election Final results?
