Judicial Misconduct Complaint Expanded – Part III

Granite Grok - 3 hours 15 min ago

The Complaint filed against Judge John Curren with the Judicial Conduct Committee (JCC) has now been expanded to include the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) which provides management oversight of the Court Clerks.

Having engaged in numerous conversations with the Clerks in the 9th Circuit Division of District Court, and having received conflicting information, on January 31, 2023 I decided to speak with a Supervisor at the Courthouse. Is the Judge telling the Clerks to hold off in issuing the orders or are the clerks losing paperwork and just sitting on orders?

I walked away with few answers, more confusion and the distinct feeling that I had been lied to. My hope was to understand the process on how paperwork is handled and how Orders and Notices of Decision are issued and mailed.

The Judge denied the City of Nashua’s Motion to Intervene on an Annulment on November 23, 2022. The Court maintains a Case Summary computerized sheet that creates an index of all filings on the case. The Case Summary recorded a “Notice of Decision” was issued on January 4, 2023 for the November 23, 2023 order. Why did it take 5 weeks to attach the Notice to the Order? The Supervisors response was – because that is what it takes.

I asked the Clerk why the Notice was never mailed. She insisted it was mailed, but I explained that no copy of the order or decision was received. When I asked her to provide me with a copy of the Notice from the file, she stated that she could not locate it. When I stated that this is a computer generated form and can’t the clerk just pull a copy off the computer, the Supervisor explained that the form is deleted from the Computer so no record exists. Does this sound reasonable? The Supervisor insisted that the information was lost by the parties and not the Court. (the other party in the case did not receive the order or Notice either)

What was more disturbing was that my Attorney and I had been following up on the case since the end of November. The Clerks consistently and repeatedly stated that the orders and notices were coming any day, – mailed tomorrow, – to be completed soon. None of this was true. It took 70 days to get the Order and Notice mailed.

The Supervisor explained that they work by date from a pile and incoming mail goes at the bottom of the pile. When I asked the Supervisor what day they were working on now, she responded that she did not know.

The Supervisor explained that the District Court, unlike the Civil Court, has no deadlines and guidelines established on when work is to be completed.

So, at least I now know that the date for completing the annulment is anyone’s guess. But when this all started in July 2022, I was told I should have this wrapped up in 30 days. I lost my patience at 7 months.

Attorney Mittleholzer of the JCC has responded and accepted the Complaint stating they required 90 days to conduct a review; Attorney Dianne Martin has not yet responded. I have written to the Executive Councilors as well. I am looking for answers. And so it begins…

It is Cold – And Getting Colder

The Liberty Block - 3 hours 38 min ago

For the past two decades, the progressive left-wing of the united states and the world has been insisting that the globe is warming catastrophically quickly due to human behavior. There is a myriad of hard sources, facts, and figures that disprove this ridiculous claim. Additionally, The Liberty Block published an article in 2021 proving that even the most hardcore progressive elites do not believe the Earth is warming.

Adding Florida Would Mean More Than Half of US States Hew to This Restriction on Government

Granite Grok - 4 hours 45 min ago

Passing this legislation in Florida would mean that over half the US states hew to the second amendment’s restriction on government. As in, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Reformatted and emphasis mine:

Florida taking the first steps to become 26th constitutional carry State

The speaker of the Florida House announced lawmakers had filed the bill this morning.

Florida lawmakers’ promise to introduce legislation allowing permitless concealed carry of firearms, called “Constitutional Carry” by proponents, has been met. At a Monday morning press briefing, House Speaker Paul Renner (R-Palm Coast) and other gathered lawmakers announced House Bill 543, which would allow weapons and firearms without a license for concealment.

The proposed bill was written by Rep. Chuck Brannan (R-Lake City), with state Sen. Jay Collins (R-Tampa) writing the companion legislation for the Florida Senate. Gov. Ron DeSantis said in December that he was committed to the legislation passing and urged state lawmakers to propose it.

Under the proposed bill, Floridians would no longer need to apply for a license for concealed carry. The state of Florida already allows firearm purchases for those 21 and older without need of state application, aside from federal requirements for background checks. Should the bill pass, the regulation of concealed carry permits, handled by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, would end.

As it should be.  And then Second Amendment Rights activists and participants can rightly say that the majority of the country can say that the Second Amendment is no longer a second-class Right.  The Left always proclaims that “the streets will run red with blood” if it passes. Balderdash – no such thing ever happens (just like “gun control” can control gun crime.  Doubt me? Abstracted, reformatted, emphasis mine:

Bad neighborhoods: 1% of counties responsible for 42% of America’s murders

Only a tiny fraction of U.S. counties account for nearly all of the country’s homicides, according to research released Tuesday that showed a striking concentration where killings take place.

  •  The worst 31 counties — generally urban jurisdictions — have about a fifth of the country’s population but accounted for 42% of the country’s homicides in 2020
  • The worst 5% of counties accounted for 73% of homicides. That ticked up slightly from 69% in 2014 and 70% in 2016.
  • Meanwhile, 52% of counties recorded no homicides in 2020, and another 16% recorded only a single killing.

So if you didn’t pass elementary school, especially in these Democrat-controlled cities, in 68% of US counties, we are pretty much having “streets running red with blood” and are not killing each other with guns with any frequency.

Second translation:  It’s a CULTURE War that is happening – people in cities, especially in gang areas, are committing these crimes.  In rural areas, not so much. For every school shooting we hear about, even most of the “mass shootings” (depending on whose definition you are abusing) pales in comparison to Chicago every weekend on people who got shot. Yet, I don’t hear anything from the Democrats except for empty words but want to take OUR guns away (those of us that have never fired a shot in anger or outside of a gun range (inside, outside, ad hoc).

And even within those counties, it points to gang warfare over turf (either geophysical or crime type (drugs, prostitution, gambling, et al)):

Mr. Lott crunched the data for Los Angeles County and found that 10% of the county’s ZIP codes accounted for 41% of the homicides. Another 10% accounted for 26% more.

“Murder isn’t a nationwide problem. It’s a problem in a small set of urban areas, and even in those counties murders are concentrated in small areas inside them, and any solution must reduce those murders,” he wrote in his report.

Hey, “Urban Areas”?  Instead of trying to scapegoat the rest of us, how about locking up those committing the actual CRIMES?

The Congressmen Cannot be Serious

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 23:30 +0000

Yes, they are. Nadler, Schiff, Johnson, and Cicilline all sit on the House Judiciary Committee, and after their comments yesterday, they may also be sitting on their cerebellum. There is no way these bloviators can review their comments and think they are seriously thinking individuals, let alone members of the House of Representatives. This exchange of statements by the Democrat members is a national embarrassment. Each member did their best to raise the bar on ludicrous jabs at the Republicans who are now in control of the House and all committees.

Nadler called the hearings an attempt at “showboating” and said there is no serious issue at the Southern Border. This is the same little man, physically and in stature, who spent four years pushing a Russian conspiracy and supporting any reason to impeach President Donald Trump.

Johnson from Georgia, who two weeks ago suggested that Classified documents may have been planted in Joe Biden’s office and home by Republican operatives, said the committee hearings were nothing but a distraction.

Adam Schiff took the humanitarian route and declared that Republicans are demonizing migrant families. No, Adam, these are not migrants. They are lawbreakers as soon as they illegally enter our country. Millions are doing just that because you, your President, and the rest of the Democrats have destroyed our Border and sovereignty. These words are from a man who lied and deceived the country into believing he had proof of Trump’s collusion with the Russians. He never produced those facts.

And Cicilline, from the corrupt state of Rhode Island, claims that the Republicans are using scare tactics to turn the American people against the immigrants flooding into America. These are not immigrants but illegal aliens emanating from over 170 countries.

These people are in complete denial about the crisis at our Southern Border, and this is the thinking they relay to their supporters. You just have to watch the videos, listen to officials from the Border states, or talk to anyone from Border Patrol to know that our Border is broken and out of control. And if not enough to have our Southern Border dissolved, we learned this week that our Northern Border with Canada is now hemorrhaging. We have been borrowing staff from the Border with Canada to bolster our presence on the Southern Front because we felt comfortable that the Northern Border was secure. It is not.

This dichotomy between the Left and Right is adding momentum to the Republican action to impeach the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas. Two Republicans have already submitted separate Articles of Impeachment on Mayorkas. The Republicans also made good on their promise to remove Ilhan Omar from the prominent Foreign Affairs Committee. On a vote along Party lines, Omar was officially removed today. This action against Omar was warranted based on her documented views showing disdain for America and her antisemitic beliefs against Israel. She has expressed her support for Palestine and said that Israel does not deserve to exist as an independent country.

We see a stark difference between the Republicans of this new Congress and their Democrat colleagues. We see execution from the Right and emotional outbursts from the Left. Representative Cortez went to the well of the House today to give a demonstrative rant calling the action against Omar racially motivated. With arms flailing and bouncing up and down, she thought these antics were making an impression. They did with the head nodding Dems sitting behind her. The real problem here is that we cannot expect a different outcome if the ignorant electorate continues to send these people back to Washington. Maybe this is why the Left wants to lower the voting age and allow non-citizens the right to vote. That will help keep this vicious, destructive cycle going strong.

Democrat: “Landlords Are Not Housing Providers. The Workers Who Built the Housing Are…”

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 22:00 +0000

This week, the New Hampshire legislature debated a bill that would give local towns and cities the power of rent control. In its defense, one New Hampshire Democrat argued that the landlords were not housing providers.


This bill enables municipalities to adopt bylaws to regulate the period of notice required prior to a rent increase on residential property and the permissible amount of such rent increases.


HB95 died a well-deserved death by a large margin in a chamber with a very slim Republican majority. It came out of committee with a 16-3 recommendation to kill it and lost on the floor of the House 301 to 63. 117 Democrats opposed it, which makes this all the more amusing.

One of the bill’s sponsors, Democrat Rep. Eric Gallager, from Concord, looking the part of the scruffy Marxist with his suitably useless cloth bandana face mask (to protect him from COVID, I can only assume), delivered what one Rep reported to me to be the worst floor speech he’s ever seen.

You can watch all six incredibly painful (but amusing) minutes here, but NH House Republicans took the money shot and set it to some… appropriate music.




Gallager is not new to controversy though many of the tweets we’ve shared in the past have since been deleted. He appears to have left Twitter, probably at the request of the State Democrat Party. (If I missed him, please share the link to his feed in the comments.)

They may want to ask him to refrain from speaking on the floor of the House.

It’s not good for the business, which, as we all know, is ‘you didn’t build that,’ but as soon as they have the votes, they’ll whittle away and try to take it from you and give it to the workers government.



*NH is a Dillons Rule State. Local government entities, from counties to cities to towns to school boards, cannot do anything without the legislature having passed authorizing legislation. And yes, they still try to do things without authorizing legislation.

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man.

Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as “bad luck.”

Hahahahahaha – Paypal Lays Off 2,000 workers (7% of their workforce) – Blames Economy.

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 19:00 +0000

Instead of themselves. We’ve written in the past that Paypal, because of our writing, restricted the use of our own money for six months. We could look at it, and run reports against account activity, but no money could be added in at all (either by you folks, our sponsors, or even ourselves) or expended. Once that time in Paypal Purgatory was over, I quickly moved it out.  While we still have a Paypal account, I sweep it regularly to keep the balance low.

Yes, we have been evaluating other payment processors to either add to Paypal or replace it entirely; we have not yet pulled the trigger on that. A wrench has been thrown into that process, however, as Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, is making noises that Twitter is going to go into that business. Given that many Conservatives are returning to Twitter (including us: @GraniteGrok), I’m betting he’ll have a pent-up demand for those services.

He’d be returning to his roots. Remember, Musk was one of the original founders of Paypal and the buyout from eBay gave him the funds to start his meteoric rise as one of the greatest entrepreneurs in history.  So I’m going to sit back for a bit and watch. Meanwhile, here is Twitter’s press release:

The following message was shared with PayPal employees today by President and CEO Dan Schulman.

Over the past year, we made significant progress in strengthening and reshaping our company to address the challenging macro-economic environment while continuing to invest to meet our customers’ needs. While we have made substantial progress in right-sizing our cost structure, and focused our resources on our core strategic priorities, we have more work to do. We must continue to change as our world, our customers, and our competitive landscape evolve.

This is called “partial denial” as well as “our own created crisis”. Review the opening of this post and know that Paypal created part of that evolving “competitive landscape”. When you tell a large number of your customers, simply because of their Woke Ideology making their britches too big and believing they could use their size to bully those that don’t agree with them.  Like us.

Addressing these changes requires us to make hard decisions that will impact some of our colleagues. Today, I’m writing to share the difficult news that we will be reducing our global workforce by approximately 2,000 full time employees, which is about 7% of our total workforce. These reductions will occur over the coming weeks, with some organizations impacted more than others. We will treat our departing colleagues with the utmost respect and empathy, provide them with generous packages, engage in consultation where required, and support them with their transitions. I want to express my personal appreciation for the meaningful contributions they have made to PayPal.

While it seems that the economy has (finally) hit Big Tech, when you tell customers that they must walk on eggshells and only use speech that Paypal agrees with, that’s no small reason for, in part, that must be playing a role this RIF (Reduction In Force).  If a customer figures out that his vendor doesn’t like him, why stay?

…but I am confident we will come through it together with compassion for each other, our values at the fore, and a shared commitment to the future of PayPal

My only “shared commitment ” is to get out of Dodge completely as soon as we can.

Liberal journalists, pundits, and others used to taunt Conservatives with “If you don’t like it, start your own company!” – and then got upset when Conservatives took the hint and did and consumers switched to them. We’ve looked at a number of them already. In the aggregate, they could replace what Paypal does. Reviewing what individual companies offer RIGHT NOW is the problem. Not one of them has all the pieces in place yet (Soon!, they say) for us to move.

To be honest, given what Paypal did to us and NEVER told us why, I have no tears for those that were laid off. I don’t wish them ill; I just don’t care.

Too bad, Paypal, you brought some of this onto yourselves.

Sidenote: in pulling up the Paypal logo, this popped up. Given that the Fed and other large banks are doing “pilot projects” to digitize our dollars (allowing them to do their version of the Chinese Social Credit system as in “eating out too often? Donating to a conservative candidate or group?).Yeah, we’re giving you a time-out from your money:

I already don’t trust my Government and I’m not liking Big Banks either…

Reminder: The Weather Was Worse When We Had Less Atmospheric CO2 …

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 17:30 +0000

Reminder: The Weather Was Worse When We Had Less Atmospheric CO2 …

There are a lot of lies when it comes to the Climat Cult. That there’s a crisis, that they can fix it, and that CO2 is the driver. Not only is CO2, not the driver the greenhouse effect does not drive the earth’s climate.

Our atmosphere is not like Venus, nor is its anything like ours, but the experts want you to hold that image in your mind. Venus is so hot – because of the greenhouse effect. So it’s not insanely hot because the sun is beating down on the surface for 2,916 consecutive hours of any given 5,832-hour day?

Not comparable. But the idea feeds their CO2 mythology, which has no connection to observable weather. So much so that NASA has continued to massage the temperature record to make it match.

Adjustments are required to records that did not consider the advancement of funding or a partisan agenda. It’s such a joke. One that is so easily exposed; we do it here all the time. And sometimes, we find people who have done a better job – at least in presentation – and share their reporting. Today’s lesson comes as they often do from Tony Heller, who reminds us that the weather used to be worse, more extreme, and more deadly, without regard to the CO2 myth currently being peddled.

!function(r,u,m,b,l,e){r._Rumble=b,r[b]||(r[b]=function(){(r[b]._=r[b]._||[]).push(arguments);if(r[b]._.length==1){l=u.createElement(m),e=u.getElementsByTagName(m)[0],l.async=1,l.src=""+(arguments[1].video?'.'+arguments[1].video:'')+"/?url="+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+"&args="+encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify([].slice.apply(arguments))),e.parentNode.insertBefore(l,e)}})}(window, document, "script", "Rumble");

Once Again, Congressional Progressives Show THEY Believe Govt Owns You AND Your Company

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 16:00 +0000

You can call it “The hubris of high office”, the “Insolence of a long-term office holder”, or “Progressives on Parade”. Or all three at once but these two short paragraphs show that these folks have no interest in governing, they believe that you are ruled by them.  And they have no problem in letting you know that, one way or another.

So Elon Musk, who makes Progressives’ heads explode simply by breathing, went to DC and met with a number of Republicans but happened to run into House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y). And that was the only Democrat he talked with while he was there.

Snubbed, SNUBBED, I say!  How DARE he not talk to me and me!  After all, doesn’t he report to ME?

Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., told the news outlet that Musk’s failure to meet with congressional Democrats is “seriously a mistake and I think it would be a good thing to have him come in and explain himself.”

When asked about Musk, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said: “I am deeply concerned with how he’s running that company into the ground. It seems like a vanity project that is going wrong with an explosion of hate speech on that platform.”

Well, maybe not but it’s clear that they have it in their minds, hearts, and souls that he should if he doesn’t.

I’m sorry, but the last time I remembered what I learned in elementary school, we elect people and they work for us. Here, we see Schakowsky and Schiff both with the ‘tude that’s something they never learned (or if they did, have tossed that onto the same pile as “limited government”, Federalism”, the US Constitution, and Liberty.

WHY, Jan, does Musk have to explain ANYTHING to you? He doesn’t live in Illinois, didn’t vote for you, has probably never even met you. So WHY is it, with respect to the First Amendment’s Freedom of Assembly (and conversely, not having to “assemble” with anyone you don’t want to) is it a mistake?  Is she thinking she’s the female version of Don Corleone and Musk has to kiss your ring?

Hey, Adam, so WHAT if he actually runs Twitter into the ground?  YOU don’t own it, the Government doesn’t own it, and it IS (along with investers) his to do with as he pleases. So if he tanks it, all that happens is that no more taxes are taken by the Fed Govt. And, like all control freaks, while he complains about “hate speech”, Musk has already rolled out stats that speech that Schiff doesn’t like (hate speech which is merely “speech Progressives don’t like, mostly from Conservatives lips).

And again, Twitter is Musk’s business. He owns it and if it IS a “vanity project”, who cares?  Certainly Schiff is sticking his government nose shouldn’t belong – in a private person’s life and business.

But this is how Progressives roll – EVERYTHING should be Government’s business.  And they certainly live and act as that’s true.

Up Yours!  Both of you!

Oh, do you think that “totalitarian” is a word that fits their outlook?

Does It Make Sense Now? Egg Yokes May Protect You from SARS CoV2 …

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 14:30 +0000

If you surf (or troll) meme sights, you’re likely to observe a rise in sh!t posting about the prices of eggs. It was getting out of hand before the Connecticut egg farm burned down and took 100,000 chickens with it.

Eggs are about to get more expensive.




More from iFunny in a minute because the latest egg news circling the internet is that their power to fight SARS, especially COVID, is a known scientific quantity.


The National Institute of Health’s own studies shows that Chicken Egg Yolk antibodies actually block the binding of multiple SARS-COV-2 Spike protein variants to human ACE2.


PubMed Jan 2021


The SARS-CoV-2 virus is still spreading worldwide, and there is an urgent need to effectively prevent and control this pandemic. This study evaluated the potential efficacy of Egg Yolk Antibodies (IgY) as a neutralizing agent against the SARS-CoV-2. We investigated the neutralizing effect of anti-spike-S1 IgYs on the SARS-CoV-2 pseudovirus, as well as its inhibitory effect on the binding of the coronavirus spike protein mutants to human ACE2. Our results show that the anti-Spike-S1 IgYs showed significant neutralizing potency against SARS-CoV-2 pseudovirus, various spike protein mutants, and even SARS-CoV in vitro. It might be a feasible tool for the prevention and control of ongoing COVID-19.



PubMed Nov 2022


Coronavirus disease (COVID)-19 caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection has become a global pandemic disease that has social and economic chaos. An alternative mitigation strategy may involve the use of specific immunoglobulin (Ig)-Y derived from chicken eggs.


There are more like this. It is not fringe science or conspiracy theory, but if you’re looking for a conspiracy theory, acts of domestic terrorism against the food supply are on the radar. We can add egg farms because, hey – egg yokes might be an accessible prophylactic to COVID, so let’s make them more expensive or just inaccessible to anyone but the jet-setting climate conference-crashing global elite.

Or something like that.

Here are a few more memes.

I’m Agreeing With NH Senator Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua)?? Why, Yes I Am

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 13:00 +0000

Again, if you believe that our Constitution is our most foundational Law (and our Social Contract – see what I did there SJWs?), this is actually needed. Landrigan has the story.

Reformatted, emphasis mine.

New Hampshire mothers of newborns face criminal penalties if they don’t truthfully answer questions about personal habits ranging from their weight during pregnancy to their use of tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs and any history of sexually transmitted diseases.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers wants to remove those penalties and permit mothers to opt out of having to provide personally identified information. Current law allows state government to keep these paper records indefinitely. This bill would also repeal that provision.

After all:

[Art.] 2-b. [Right of Privacy.] An individual’s right to live free from governmental intrusion in private or personal information is natural, essential, and inherent.
December 5, 2018.

Right now, there is information that is gathered not for medical records but for the NH Division of Vital Records Administration (which isn’t covered by HPPA restrictions). So I DO agree with NH Sen. Rosenwald (emphasis mine) that,

“These questions are none of state government’s business if she doesn’t want to share,” said Sen. Cindy Rosenwald, D-Nashua. Her bill (SB 105) is the product of a study committee that worked on the issue last year.

If it is only going to a state bureaucracy that keeps records, it IS the correct question to ask if whether or not that information is wanted or needed.  Especially if there are no special protections to keep that individual info safe. It also gets hoovered up by that stellar Fed agency known by three letters: CDC.

And I then I had to smile – bureaucrats are complaining their “THEIR” data is being taken away from them:

State health officials and a representative of the New Hampshire Hospital Association raised concerns over permitting mothers to opt out of providing the information.

“It is one of the busiest and challenging times for a woman’s life, but our members have said this (opt-out) is going to be a challenge,” said Paula Minnehan, senior vice president of government relations for the hospital group. HHS officials said public agencies and research groups rely on this information to produce reports and form strategies, such as how to reduce high rates of illegal substance abuse or STDs.

Obviously, none of the above have read Article 2-b (er, EVER read the NH Constitution, period?).  No, it should NOT be a challenge at all – you just can’t ask. Any work you do either has to be done by getting the data by other means. How about offering MONEY to the Mom to buy that personal data?  Instead of assuming it should be free to you? After all, if you are making the signals that such data has value, why won’t you pay for it?

Again, I have to agree with Rosenwald:

“It’s the job of hospitals to convince the mother the public good gained by analysis of this information in de-identified form is a good reason to agree to the release of this data,” Rosenwald said. She predicted the rate of mothers opting out would be low, but they should have the option.

Exactly right – if the Mom wants to share, great. If not, no go. Oh, and there’s the money – and the State wants its self-interest to have priority over these mother’s data:

Deputy Secretary of State Erin Hennessey said it was unclear whether permitting the opt-out would jeopardize an annual $169,000 grant the Centers for Disease Control gives New Hampshire to gather the information.

Sorry, justifying obviating the Constitution with a mere $170K is a bad argument.  Are you that entitled, ma’am?

Fundamentals of CNC Machining

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-02-03 10:52 +0000

Are you amazed by the fine artistic carvings in your furniture set? Such art requires patience and skill before it can be properly created. It is natural for humans to be artistic and creative. Meanwhile, not all creative people are born with existential gifts.

However, commitment and dedication to the task can gradually improve your carving skills. Although this is a difficult and risky task, it has the potential to enhance your creativity.

Since accuracy and precision are the keys to ensuring that your products are durable and of high quality, you need to use an engraving machine. This will help you decide what and where to trim. It allows you to simplify your work and you can save more of your time. It can also prevent accidents during your work. You only need to monitor the machine during the carving process.

This type of machine is also called a wood router or virmer. This type of router has the characteristics of being a computer numerical control machine and is capable of precise carving in wood. It usually spins faster than a metal router. It usually uses fine tools for carving wood but is also capable of handling heavy materials.

Generally, a CNC wood router is a machine used to shape or cut wood by routing specific sections of wood. You can adjust its speed according to the result you wanted to achieve. To fully operate or use this machine, you must be very familiar with its structure and functions.

Its structure usually consists of a flat plane with a rotating shaft attached to a wooden base. Electricity powers the shaft, causing it to rotate rapidly. The flat part of the CNC wood router acts as a base during the carving process. It grips the wood firmly to prevent it from moving. This allows the router to detect the finer details of the design being used. Designs are usually drawn on wood before a CNC wood router machine traces it.

There are several types of CNC wood routers that will usually suit your taste. Its design and size will depend on how much power it can accommodate. The brand name of the CNC wood router will also greatly affect its performance. It is good to choose a CNC wood router that is widely used by most people.

A CNC woodworking machine is very helpful in making exact replicas of furniture. It is prominently used in making modern-style wardrobes. This makes the difficult part of the edges and scrolling easier. You are assured of its precise cutting action. A CNC wood router started with hand-operated tools that later evolved into the present-day electronically operated spinning routers.

This tragedy harms not only men but women. Men need women, but so do women need men, despite what feminism has taught. American men today have largely decided they would simply rather be alone than continue to feel battered and exhausted by an unending stream of bad dates with unpleasant women. No healthy person wants to play with a porcupine.

And this is funny.  Back in my dating days I used to “be confused” in the produce aisle and would ask for help:

Women starting to avoid soy

I guess women are starting to figure out that the ability to fix things is a much more useful trait in a man than putting platitudes about how they love to travel in their dating apps.

Not that I want to re-enter the dating game.  But… I’m getting to the point where I’m scared to should the possibility arise.  Short of finding a traditionally-minded woman in an Orthodox shul, which is where I’d focus anyway, what would I find in the common dating market?

The Secrecy of the Nashua Mohawk Tannery EPA Superfund Project

Granite Grok - Thu, 2023-02-02 23:30 +0000

The January 10, 2023 Special Presentation to the Board of Alderman by City leaders and developers on the development of this EPA Superfund property into 537 housing units left many unanswered questions. There was no public input permitted.

As usual, Dir. Cummings chose his words carefully and was unclear about the costs to taxpayers. About two weeks later, a citizen sent a very well-researched letter to the Board of Alderman and Mr. Cummings with questions on the project. No one responded or offered answers.

Citizen Email re Mohawk

I, too, have a number of questions, so I sent an email on January 22, 2023, requesting a meeting with anyone willing to discuss the project. Friday, I received a response from Dir. Cummings;

I would recommend you attend public meetings to attain public information and participate within the forum. Alternatively, you could contact your elected officials and share your ideas and concerns with them directly.”

This is taunting. Mr. Cummings knows that the City will not answer questions in public meetings. He also knows that the Tannery Project has not been on the agenda since January 10th. Citizens don’t participate in Board meetings and there are no “forums.” His response gives no indication of when “forums” will be held.

The Board permits 3 minutes to speak, even if you are the only one there and you’re rudely interrupted with “one minute, thirty seconds, and times up (because the City can see the clock but the citizens cannot)” I have contacted the Board of Alderman and Alderman at Large. They are non-responsive.

The most unprotected speech in Nashua is political speech, and constitutionally, it is supposed to be the most protected. Say something the Mayor, legal office or Board disagrees with, and they will collectively gaslight you. I have not attended a Board meeting since October 13, 2022, when Alderman Moran called me out as a Child predator, using his professional training as a licensed social worker and child protective worker. I literally threw up for weeks over this and didn’t go anywhere. I am a lightning rod for abuse, and I can’t tolerate it anymore. The City knows this.

Through my attorney, I filed a defamation lawsuit in Superior Court against Mr. Moran and his therapy company, “Wanderlust”. His attorney, Charles Bauer is claiming this was just his opinion and normal everyday speech that Mr. Moran has a right to use against citizens coming forward to express their opinions on the operation of their government. So, now the Board and Mayor are empowered to just call everyone any names they wish. It’s open season on citizens and constitutional rights mean nothing.

The Mayor published one of his personal newsletters last week, acting as if the Mohawk Tannery is a done deal. The Aldermen are all on board.

Do you want the city spending an undisclosed amount of your tax dollars undertaking the cleanup of the Toxic chemical EPA Superfund property under the cover of darkness?

Don’t go to meetings, avoid the gaslighting and write to your Alderman about your position on a project of this nature. Send me their responses. They won’t respond to me.

Public School Groomer Let Go For … Grooming.

Granite Grok - Thu, 2023-02-02 22:00 +0000

A Portland, Maine, substitute teacher was fired after they directed them to “‘potentially inappropriate’ TikTok posts, with one student reportedly claiming that the sub encouraged a class to check out her profile on the social media site.”

The school let the sub go after an internal investigation and apologized a lot, but they never admitted the truth; that this was grooming.


“The account potentially contained inappropriate content,” Principal Caitlin LeClair wrote in an email to parents. “As the day unfolded, it became apparent that a lot of students were talking about the TikTok account. The account was immediately blocked, thereby discontinuing access for students.”

“We were thorough in our investigation, and the situation has now been addressed, completely resolved, and will not recur,” LeClair added, calling it an “unfortunate incident.”


Lydia Moon, who appears to be a man transitioning to a woman, “encouraged a class to check out her profile on the social media site,” according to Fox News.


One of the videos, obtained by the Maine Wire, showed Moon in a towel and posing provocatively. Parents heard that another video may have included Moon’s discussion about her experience undergoing hormone treatment therapy. One student told her parents that Moon had listed her TikTok handle on a whiteboard and encouraged kids to check out her posts, the Wire reported.


In other words, the Portland School district hired a groomer who was grooming, and now they are in duck and cover mode because it is one thing to insist your obsession with teaching the gender culture has nothing to do with grooming and another when a groomer gets caught grooming. An act that is the direct result of what can only be a refusal to properly vet a man in a dress before giving them access to students.

And that’s not bigoted. A man in a suit should receive the same treatment, especially from a control-freak culture like public education which claims it doesn’t check a prospective teacher’s social media before hiring them but would punish a student for social media content posted away from (or not even about) school if they thought they could get away with it.

Here are a few more warning signs dug up by The Maine Wire and available online until just after the story broke.


The teacher has also gone by Chris Lamere, Lydia Moon, Clodagh Moon, and Clodagh Lamere, and has identified variously as non-binary, as a transgender woman, and as a transgender lesbian, according to a review of public social media.


So … based on the reporting, Lydia is a creepy guy in a dress who is sexually attracted to girls and women and encourages middle-school girls to check out “her” journey online.

A quick note to parents. If your administrators, boards, or educators insist that the kids are theirs and they know better (should be their guardians), maybe you can call child and family services on them and demand your custody rights back.

Dem Bill Would Force NH to Adopt California Electric Vehicle Standards

The Liberty Block - Thu, 2023-02-02 21:29 +0000

The House Science, Technology and Energy Committee will hold a public hearing tomorrow, February 3rd, for House Bill 92. The legislation was sponsored by 7 Democrats and aims to adopt the California Low Emission/Zero Emission (LEV/ZEV) vehicle standards. The bill, like many others, has a seemingly admirable intention of protecting the environment, but what incentives does it actually provide? Is it even helpful in the first place? Let’s take a look.

Missouri Freedom to Farm Act Takes on both State and Federal Regulations on Farming and Ranching

Granite Grok - Thu, 2023-02-02 19:00 +0000

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Jan. 24, 2023) – A bill introduced in the Missouri Senate would ban state cooperation with the enforcement of federal regulations that interfere with farming and ranching in the state.

Sen. Jill Carter (R) introduced Senate Bill 84 (SB84) on Jan. 4. Titled the Freedom to Farm Act, the legislation would limit government regulation of farming and ranching in Missouri. The bill includes provisions addressing federal regulations.

“The right of farmers and ranchers to engage in farming and ranching practices for sale or personal consumption shall be guaranteed free from government intervention and such practices occurring within this state shall not be infringed upon by the federal government under the regulation of interstate commerce.”

SB84 goes on to prohibit state and local government agencies from enforcing any provision of law, order, ordinance, rule, regulation, policy, or other similar measures that restrict farming or ranching practices. Any state or local agency could be held civilly liable in state court for violating this provision.

In practice, the proposed law would create a process for farmers and ranchers in Missouri to challenge the enforcement of federal regulations on farming. Any farmer or rancher who believed a state or local agency helped enforce a federal rule or regulation that infringed on their right to farm could sue that state agency in state court. If the court finds in their favor, it would effectively ban any future state or local enforcement of that particular federal regulation.

At the least, the passage of SB84 would create a chilling effect on state and local cooperation with the enforcement of federal regulations on farming and ranching. In the best-case scenario, it would stop cooperation with the enforcement of some specific federal regulations.


Based on James Madison’s advice for states and individuals in Federalist #46, a “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” provides an extremely effective method to render federal laws, effectively unenforceable because most enforcement actions rely on help, support, and leadership from the states. This legislation could effectively end the enforcement of some federal rules and regulations that infringe on the right to farm.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano agreed this type of approach would be extremely effective. In a televised discussion on federal gun laws, he noted that a single state refusing to cooperate with enforcement would make federal gun laws “nearly impossible” to enforce.

The federal government relies heavily on state cooperation to implement and enforce almost all of its laws, regulations and acts. By simply withdrawing this necessary cooperation, states can nullify in effect many federal actions. As noted by the National Governor’s Association during the partial government shutdown of 2013, “states are partners with the federal government on most federal programs.”


The provisions prohibiting the state from enforcing or implementing certain federal acts rest on a well-established legal principle known as the anti-commandeering doctrine. Simply put, the federal government cannot force states to help implement or enforce any federal act or program – whether constitutional or not. The anti-commandeering doctrine is based primarily on five Supreme Court cases dating back to 1842. Printz v. U.S. serves as the cornerstone.

“We held in New York that Congress cannot compel the States to enact or enforce a federal regulatory program. Today we hold that Congress cannot circumvent that prohibition by conscripting the States’ officers directly. The Federal Government may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program. It matters not whether policy making is involved, and no case by case weighing of the burdens or benefits is necessary; such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty.”

No determination of constitutionality is necessary to invoke the anti-commandeering doctrine. State and local governments can refuse to enforce federal laws or implement federal programs whether they are constitutional or not.


SB84 was referred to the Senate Agriculture, Food Production, and Outdoor Resources Committee, where it must get a hearing and pass by a majority vote before moving forward in the legislative process.
