The Problem With Senate Bill 3

The problem with Senate Bill 3 is that it doesn’t go far enough, as explained below.  That said, it is a baby-step in the right direction that can be easily improved upon, and it probably is the best that can be expected under the current RINO (Republican-in-Name-Only) legislature.

If Senate Bill 3 is defeated, which would take GOP votes, it would mean the GOP chose to make no improvements to New Hampshire’s porous voting laws, give the Democrats -who have been flat out lying about Senate Bill 3- an undeserved victory, and embolden the Democrats to escalate their voter-fraud schemes in 2018.

NH Democrats Lying About the AHCA (Just Like They Lied About Obamacare)

Democrats lied repeatedly about Obamacare, when they were trying to pass it.  The video below, for example, shows 36 instances when Obama lied about being able to keep your current healthcare plan.  Actually, Obamacare would have forced insurance companies to cancel millions of policies.

He also repeatedly stated that under Obamacare premiums would go down $2,500.00 per family.  Another lie.

Well, the Democrats are using the same tactic -lie- to prevent the repeal and replacing of Obamacare.  From the twitter feed of the New Hampshire Democrats (May 24th):

The statement that the AHCA kicks 23 million off health insurance is a blatant lie. Continue reading

How Representative Sherry Frost Has Elevated Political Discourse in New Hampshire

The tweet from Representative Sherry Frost, aka Representative Potty-Mouth, that first became notorious was this one, calling State Senators “fuckers” for voting to reform New Hampshire’s concealed-carry law:

That tweet appeared on January 10, 2017, on the same day Potty-Mouth also tweeted “fuck fuck fuckity fuck”:

Croydon Amendment is Unconstitutional – 1st Amendment Prohibits Discrimination Against Religious Schools

This tweet got my attention earlier today:

The #DyingPaper editorial was not very informative.  It didn’t really explain the need for an amendment, never mind produce a link to the amendment.

I was able to locate the amendment through the website of a a left-of-center organization called Reaching Higher NH:

The purpose of the amendment, as explained by Reaching Higher NH: Continue reading

Not Such a Clever Boy – Fisher Should Resign, Otherwise He Should Be Expelled

I think Sykfall was the best Bond movie ever.  The recent reporting by Daily Beast asserting that Representative Robert Fisher remains involved with the infamous Red Pill forum  reminds me of a scene from Skyfall in which the villain, Silva, hacks into mi6’s computers.

Anticipating that mi6 would attempt to access his personal computer, Silva, programmed his PC to hack mi6 and arranged his capture by Bond.  At 1:16 of the video below, after Q realizes mi6 has been hacked but can’t figure out how, a message appears on Silva’s computer “NOT SUCH A CLEVER BOY.”  What’s left out of this video is Q at the outset bragging about how easy it will be for him to get past Silva’s defenses:

Now, looking at Silva’s computer, it seems to me he’s done a number of slightly unusual things.  He’s established failsafe protocols to wipe the memory if there’s any attempt to access certain files. Only six people in the world could program safeguards like that.

Of course there are.  Can you get past them?

I invented them.

Right, then.

Let’s see what you’ve got for us, Mr. Silva.  We’re in.

Of course, that’s exactly what Silva was counting on:

Now, back to Mr. Fisher. Continue reading

Will Jasper Take the Easy Way Out, and Give Rep Sherry Frost (aka Rep Potty-Mouth) a Pass?

Needless to say, the #nhpolitics press will lose their minds if the House imposes any discipline on Representative Sherry Frost, aka Representative Potty-Mouth.  Their coverage has ignored Potty-Mouth’s clear violations of House rules, while portraying Republicans as throwing stones from a glass house.  For example, from the Concord Monitor:

As Republican Rep. Al Baldasaro criticized Frost’s online comments and defended his own past statement that Hillary Clinton should face a firing squad, House candidate Joshua Adjutant yelled at him from across the room to “shut the f— up.”

Democratic Rep. Ellen Read questioned why a male lawmaker wasn’t admonished by GOP leaders after she said he refused to take down a Facebook post calling Frost a “c—.” Read’s utterance of the swear drew loud gasps from the crowd and a stern word from the committee chairman.

But as Kimberly Morin has noted in her blog New Hampshire Political Buzz, it is undeniable that Representative Potty-Mouth has violated the principles of conduct set forth at the outset of the Ethics Guidelines.  More specifically, the following: Continue reading

NH House GOP Gets Rolled By Representative PottyMouth

What is wrong with this picture of Representative Sherry Frost and her “lawyer,” Paul Twomey, from this Wednesday’s hearing before the House Legislative Administration Committee to investigate whether Frost violated the House’s ethical rules?

What’s wrong with it is this:

[Art.] 22. [House to Elect Speaker and Officers, Settle Rules of Proceedings, and Punish Misconduct.] The house of representatives shall choose their own speaker, appoint their own officers, and settle the rules of proceedings in their own house; … 

The committee, which is majority Republican, allowed Frost and her lawyer to “settle the rules of proceeding.” Continue reading

What New Hampshire Democrats Really Mean When They Claim “Rape Culture” is “Pervasive” at State House

According to Democrat State Representative, Debra Altschiller, “… rape culture is pervasive at the State House.”  She defines “rape culture” as “a society or environment whose prevailing social attitudes have the effect of normalizing or trivializing sexual assault and abuse.”  Altschiller claims to “have witnessed this on a weekly basis in Concord.”

Altschiller then provides what she calls “just a few examples.”  These “examples,” even if representative, fall far , far short of demonstrating a “pervasive” “rape culture” that manifests itself  “on a weekly basis.”  Indeed, given that these examples are presumably the most egregious, it is fair to say that  Altschiller’s next op-ed should be a retraction and an apology.

Serious Questions Raised by Sununu’s Nomination of Arlinghaus

Chris Sununu has nominated long-time FOS, Friend-of-Sununus, Charlie Arlinghaus to be the Commissioner of the Department of Administrative Services:

“New Hampshire will be in good hands with Charlie Arlinghaus leading the Department of Administrative Services,” Sununu said in a statement. “Charlie has a deep knowledge and understanding of the budget and state agencies, and I look forward to nominating him at tomorrow’s Council meeting.”

This raises some serious questions. Continue reading
