    secretary of state websites | 7/28/2017 | LS
    A quick update from three "battleground" states. Realize that after an election the secretaries of state in most states engage in purge of dead voters (i.e., Democrats---joke) or people who have moved, etc. This continues at a regular pace. So the totals in all states fall some but the trend and direction is the key. NH (from Dec. 16-Ap 17) Rs net +7,000 FL (from Dec. 16-July 17) Rs net +49,000 NM (from Dec. 16-July 17) Rs net +10,000

    After New Hampshire Democrats blocked reporters from attending an annual picnic that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) headlined on Sunday, Waters reportedly told attendees that she and her allies are actively “organizing” to bring down President Donald Trump. “Mr. President, we are organizing. And we are organizing to bring you down,” Waters reportedly said, according to an attendee. ”And bring your agenda down.” She also reportedly said of Trump: “This man is deplorable, dishonest, a liar, a bully and I want him impeached.”

    Refugee Resettlement ^ | July 15 2017 | Ann Corcoran
    It was only two days ago that I told you that “assimilation” is a dirty word in the lexicon of the Open Borders/Refugee industry. I also told you that we have admitted over 40,000 ‘refugees’ from the DR Congo (so far) with a UN agreed upon goal of taking 50,000. (DR Congolese refugees are the largest ethnic group coming in under the Trump Administration. Only 3.8% are Muslim, if you are wondering.) Now both posts serve as background for this stunner from Manchester, NH about a refugee from DR Congo who beat a woman (no mention if it was his...

    MANCHESTER — Augustin Bahati, the Congolese refugee who had domestic violence charges against him dismissed for reasons of cultural incompetency, participated in a class that taught him about the legal system and domestic-abuse laws, a refugee resettlement group said Monday. Newly arrived refugees are enrolled in cultural orientation classes held in their own language, said Jeffrey Thielman, president and chief executive of the International Institute of New England....Refugees charged with a crime are treated no differently than a citizen, Thielman said. Upon conviction, they can’t be deported.

    A Congolese immigrant escaped prosecution on six domestic-violence crimes when his lawyer convinced a city prosecutor that he lacked the cultural competency to participate in the American justice system, according to court and public records reviewed by the New Hampshire Union Leader. The decision is one of several questionable actions highlighted late last month by Attorney General Gordon MacDonald in a widespread critique of domestic-violence prosecutions in Manchester. MacDonald's critique led to the abrupt retirement of veteran City Solicitor Tom Clark and has put Clark's office under heightened scrutiny. One questionable decision dealt with the case of Augustin Bahati, 33,...

    Washington Times ^ | 25 June 2017 | Alex Swoyer
    When a New Hampshire police chief pulled a homemade Islamic State flag from a wall at a dam this month, it spurred a host of questions about First Amendment rights in the era of terrorism. Pittsfield Police Chief Jeffrey Cain said the black-and-white flag was causing alarm in the community. Chief Cain said he worked with the FBI on the matter but decided there was no crime in posting the flag and there was no evidence of a terrorist plot. “No criminal charges are forthcoming,” he told The Washington Times. Whether the chief was within his rights to pull down...

    Former Governor of New Hampshire, John Sununu told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Monday morning that Mueller is hiring Democrat lawyers because he knows that there is nothing to investigate. As TGP previously reported, Robert Mueller is stacking his Special Counsel team with Democrat donors and Obama lawyers as their Stalin-like witch hunt of ‘show me the man, I’ll show you the crime’ continues full steam ahead. Camerota: “Should the White House know if the President is being investigated for obstruction of justice?” Sununu: “If the President is being investigated for obstruction of justice, the White House should have been officially notified.”

    When not amassing tens of thousands of twitter followers with anti-Trump memes that stop short of conspiracies (because he uses the word "may"), Seth Abrahamson teaches at the University of New Hampshire. "Back in the classroom, the three students in Abramson's upper-level course, 'Digital Age Culture & Theory,' stare at the 10-foot-long whiteboard, which the professor has filled end-to-end with a dizzying tide of words and arrows," Steve Kolowich reports in The Chronicle of Higher Education. "Lines bloom out from 'modernism' ('enthusiasm,' 'wealthy white male self-realization,' 'belief in the transformative power of technology') and eventually reconverge on 'postmodernism' ('deconstruction,' 'dialectics,'...

    Yesterday a video of a Manchester, New Hampshire Committee meeting was posted to YouTube. The meeting took place on May 24th but there was extremely disturbing and interesting commentary made by a Manchester Alderman. Apparently, the topic was property taxes and tax credits for the elderly. The meeting was a Joint Committee Meeting on Education. Education being the largest chunk of expense for any property taxes. -snip "I’ve got an 85 year old woman that lives across the street, and, and she won’t give up her house, she’s sitting on $350,000 dollars and she can’t afford it anymore and you’re saying (pointing to...

Kerry and the new Russia probe special counsel Robert Mueller – has just issued a scandalous, astonishingly-detailed 73-page report outlining four decades of X-rated sexual abuse of students by faculty and administrators.

    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...

Senators approved Wilson’s nomination 76-22, making her President Donald Trump’s first service secretary nominee to be approved by the GOP-led chamber. ...

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.
