Johns Hopkins Claims to Have Found a Way to Make Otherwise Useless Remdesivir ‘More Effective’ Against COVID

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-04-01 00:00 +0000

This is what I’ll call a classic bait and switch. The article is titled “New Study Shows Chemical Found in Green Leafy Vegetables Can Slow the Spread and Treat Illnesses Caused by COVID-19 and Other Common Cold Viruses.” So, Salad cures COVID?

That’s the sales pitch. Eat your greens and a phytochemical called sulforaphane “can inhibit the replication of SARS-CoV-2.”


“While the results are promising, the researchers caution the public against rushing to buy sulforaphane supplements available online and in stores, noting that studies of sulforaphane in humans are necessary before the chemical is proven effective, and emphasizing the lack of regulation covering such supplements,” Hopkins Medicine stated.

Sulforaphane can be found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, both red and white varieties, bok choy, watercress, arugula, also known as rocket.


Then we get to this.


According to Alvaro Ordonez, M.D., the first author of the paper and an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, sulforaphane and remdesivir work better combined than alone is very encouraging.


Do you know what’s even more encouraging than having a salad with your thousand-dollar a dose boutique drug that doesn’t work well at all by itself? Ivermectin. It’s cheap, safe, and works before infection, during, and can be started will into an actual infection of SARS CoV2 and all of its variants.

And the leafy greens are optional (but still good for you). No COVID19 vaccine. No ventilators. No death by hospital. No kickbacks from the feds or rising Gilead Sciences Stock prices.

It’s almost like the only incentive is to treat people and make them well.

Can you imagine if we had a health care system like that?

Can We Call it Canine “COVID”? – Contagious Dog Virus Sweeps Across South Florida

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 22:30 +0000

To be clear, I’m having a bit of fun with the title. The correct name for the virus is Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC). It’s real and can be severe, but given the frantic cascade of crisis, it seemed like a suitable nickname because people are just going to freak out about it.

They’ve been reprogrammed for several years to announce that the sky is falling every time something happens somewhere. Murder hornets, poisonous caterpillars, that COVID thing about which you may have heard. Oh, and Joe Biden’s presidency.

And now this.


According to the Veterinary nurse’s website, CIRDC is a highly contagious disease transmissible via the oronasal route, inhalation, and direct contact.

“A disease that is caused by multiple viruses and bacteria that pretty much infect the respiratory tract of dogs and can cause pretty severe infection including pneumonia,” said Miami-Dade County Animal Services Chief Veterinarian Dr. Maria Serrano.


As a dog owner, I’m likely to pay attention because many dogs from down south come up here to get adopted, but that’s about it. We won’t be doing anything different, but I can’t say that for every dog owner, we’re likely to meet.

Recent generations have been trained to replace human babies for fur babies (Lord, I hate that term) and treat them like a single child even when they have more than one. It can be unnerving and no less annoying. Show dog people can be one million times worse than that. But they are fun to watch when you wander by with your non-show dog, even if it’s a pure breed.

I’d expect this lot to get a bit obsessive about the remediation methods. Thus the joke about mutt masks mandates. I’m also wondering if the Vet will be half or twice as weird as they were during COVID?

Stranger still was the gymnastics required to complete your dog’s annual visit. Stay in your car. A vet tech wrapped up like they were a lab tech in the movie Contagion will come to your care ad get your pet. The Veterinarian will call you to talk about the exam, and payment will be completed electronically.

If they had told me I needed to be vaccinated, I’d be using a different vet, and that was before we had solid evidence that the COVID19 vaccines were a more significant threat to public health than the Wuhan Flu.

As for the Canine COVID,


CIRDC is spread by direct contact with an infected dog and by contact with people who have been exposed to the virus. The virus can be carried on people’s clothing, hands, and on items such as food and water bowls, collars, leashes, toys, and bedding.

Coughing dogs produce virus-containing mists that can travel 20 feet or more. Symptoms include coughing, sneezing, and discharge from the nose and/or eyes.

If you think your dog is showing signs of CIRDC, contact your vet immediately. The virus is easily killed by most disinfectants, handwashing with soap, washing clothes and bedding, along with washing food bowls and toys.

“Peaceful” BLM-Summer Protester Gets 5-Years in Federal Prison For Trying to Burn Down a Government Building

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 21:00 +0000

George Floyd’s Fentanyl overdose-death in police custody ignited an opportunity for outrage, destruction, and violence in the name of a career criminal and black lives in general. Not the lives harmed, ruined, or ended by the protests, but other black lives.

Democrats took this opportunity to pander to presumed constituencies in the run-up to a presidential election. They pissed off cops by bad-mouthing and defunding them. They pissed off the black community by letting criminals and hooligans destroy their businesses and homes. It got out of hand.

Wesley Somers took the opportunity to try and burn down the Nashville Metro Courthouse (City Hall). With past arrests for domestic assault and attempted child neglect, this genius engaged in his act of arson shirtless.

Somers wasn’t the only “vandal” on the scene. Peaceful protesters were spraying graffiti and breaking windows, but eyewitnesses identified Wesley from his “WILD CHILD” and “HARD 2 Love” tattoos.

Domestic assault and attempted child neglect, you say?


Wesley is what you’d call a white ally in the parlance of the time. Any number of individuals, over the summer of 2020, stormed, attacked, burned, occupied, and pillaged government buildings, but very few of them were charged or did time. And they never received the level of attention or harassment that the J6 “protesters” got for walking into a building and taking selfies.

Those arrested during the BLM riots protests were either released, got bail, and disappeared, or were never charged by liberal AGs.

This poor bastard just picked the wrong government to ravage.

This dope is actually going to jail.

But hey, it looks like he was wearing a mask when he tried to burn down the Nashville Metro Courthouse.

Anyone Who Supports Net-Zero Should Be Required to Address these Concerns (And Not Just Because they Can’t)

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 19:30 +0000

The new buzzword among the Climate Cult Glitteratti is Net-Zero. They think it means a modern (corner of the) world with zero net carbon emissions. It’s actually (or at least probably) an admission that they know net-zero about what is involved in this fantasy or why it’s impossible to achieve.

Even in an outlandish era where they are pointing money almost as fast as they spend it, there’s no sum that buys this into being.


Get out a spreadsheet to do some calculations based on actual historical patterns of usage and generation from wind and solar sources, and you will find that to have a fully wind/solar generation system and make it through a year without a catastrophic failure, you will need approximately a three-times overbuild (based on rated capacity) of the wind/solar system, plus storage for something in the range of 24 – 30 days of average usage. For these purposes “usage” at any given moment is measured in gigawatts, but usage for some period of time is measured in gigawatt hours, not gigawatts. California’s average electricity usage for 2020 was about 31 GW; Australia’s was about 26 GW ; and New York’s was about 18 GW.

To calculate how much storage you need in gigawatt hours, multiply average usage in GW by 30 days and 24 hours per day. So California will need about 22,302 GWH of storage, Australia about 18,720 GWH, and New York about 12,960 GWH. That is to supply current levels of demand. For the “everything electrified” case, triple all of these numbers: 66,906 GWH for California, 56,160 GWH for Australia, and 38,880 GWH for New York. Price that out at current costs of Tesla-type lithium-ion batters (~$150/KWH) and you will get around $10 trillion for California, $8.4 trillion for Australia, and $5.8 trillion for New York. These figures are in the range of triple total annual GDP for each of these jurisdictions, before you even get to the cost of the three-times overbuild of the generations system to account for charging of the batteries when the sun is shining and wind blowing. Nor can Tesla-style batteries hold charge for months on end as would be necessary for this system, but at this point, that seems like a minor quibble.

Francis Menton’s got a lot more detail than that, so feel free to explore the minutia if you think you’ll need it here, here, here, and here. But the 30,000 problem is this. No one is talking about what we’ll actually need, how much that will cost, and the damage it will do to the planet to get there from here, ever – forget about in 8, 13, or 28 years (2030,2035, or 2050).

In the US, there’s no money for it now. None. We are so grotesquely overstretched that even if we had the materials and manufacturing (we don’t), it would be beyond the ability of anyone to pay for it or even a fraction of it.

And that’s just the batteries.

We’ve not factored in the tens of thousands of square miles of land surface onto which we would need to prop up solar panels or windmills to create the electricity we have no means to store or who or who we’d pay for those.

Read the details or just work with what we’ve shared here but anyone who breathes the words net-zero in regard to energy and carbon emissions should be politically asked what their plan is for buying, building, storing, maintaining, and replacing the number of batteries needed to even get close in one state, let alone a nation or a planet.

Seems to Be a Trend for Me Today – Debating to Protect the Innocence of Children. So, Maggie Hassan, Will You Help Me?

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 18:00 +0000

Doubtful, very doubtful. Hopefully, though, once I invite her, she’ll come in for a Grok Gauntlet in which she’ll get questions from we Groksters.  Wouldn’t THAT be a GRAND example of bipartisanship? We’ll ask her the same questions as we will the Republicans – and we’re not looking to do “gotchas” either.  So, where does she stand on this?

From TV programs to SCOTUS – Supreme Court of the United States.  Is there no WORSE people than those taking advantage of young children for their own sexual gratification (and yes, with every post, I’m getting madder and madder that Elites and those in positions of Power are allowing this to proceed!!!).

This time, it is about the US Senate “advise and consent” process for President Asterisk’s nominee for Supreme Court Justice – Ketanji Brown Jackson. Specifically her judicial philosophy on being soft on child pornographers:

This is the judicial version of Broken Windows – except with our children.  I was glad to see Lindsey Graham Version 2.0 come alive again and taking her to task when she said of sentencing such heinious child abusers with “You are looking at 30, 40, 50 years in prison” and Graham going “Good, absolutely good, I hope you go to jail for 50 years”.

Even other criminals hate these kinds of people – they generally don’t last long in the general prison population. So what is it about these Wokerati tolerating this evilness?

Sure, this a political ad by Heritage Action – but do ALL of the Left now “accept and affirm” such behavior?

What’s next, telling the rest of us to “accept and affirm” the deviants at NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) whose purpose is to erase the age-of-consent laws and gaslight us all that their deviancy is normal?  After all, as both Steve and I have written, this is the next sexual practice to become normalized – children are mere sexual beings like adults?  That young children exist simply to fulfill those adults desires?

After all, they’re only following in the gay movement’s own footsteps – get that camel’s nose under the tent:

WELCOME! The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) was formed in 1978. It was inspired by the success of a campaign based in Boston’s gay community to defend against a local witchhunt.

And the Left, in trying to turn Society into a libertine one, is seeming all in on this.

Palate Cleanser – Well, Mine Certainly Do!

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 16:30 +0000

“Every morning I find out I have new joints I never knew I had because they crack.” And yes, the guy in the picture, I used to watch him every morning before school decades ago.

Captain Kangaroo was a childrens’ TV show that was on every weekday morning and had a whole host of show characters as sidekicks (e.g., Mr. Green Jeans and puppets). And not once did my Mom have to worry that the scripts would ever bring up topics unsuitable for children.

Back then, adults protected the innocence of children knowing that many adult topics are dangerous for young’uns (like teachers and school guidance counselors trying to “turn” your pre-and-early teens gay or trans); they just don’t have the reasoning skills or the knowledgebase to handle them correctly.  Adults KNEW that kids were too immature for such things and watched over them. Even “rough” or “coarse” people back then showed deference to other peoples’ kids.

It was part of sour societal norms and structure. It was the “right thing to do.” There’d be plenty of time to learn about adult things when they became adults but not now.

But not today – almost every kids show has adults shoving adult themes into them especially sexuality.  No more twin beds for married couples like on the Dick Van Dyke show or Life with Lucy when a bedroom was shown.  Now, Disney has decided that nothing about human sexuality is off limits in their programming – including kids.  I showed TMEW a post about it (and I’ll be putting that up later on) but I can tell you that  I’ve rarely seen TMEW so LIVID after I showed her that post.  She picked up the phone REAL quick to call Disney; I seldom hear her in anger like that over the phone.

Which brings us back to the topic du jour: why is it that all these other folks believe children not their own, really are theirs and can those children information on any topic they please?

As for me, I’m tired of the lame excuse of “well, times have changed”. They have, and in many ways, not for the better (and some, I maintain, deliberately so). We used to have a shared sense of morality, of dignity not wrapped up in one’s silly and narcissistic idea of “identity”. Standards, seemingly, no longer matter, propriety is a thing that is no longer a norm, and kids are just to be manipulated for ideological reasons.

Is The“Great Reset” About Abolishing Private Property?

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 15:00 +0000

Their watchwords, at least from our side, seem to be “You won’t own anything but you will be happy.” It’s “DavosSpeak” from elites who believe that because of their global status and wealth that they can do with or to us whatever they wish.

We should be house and apartment renters forever!  No buying cars but maybe a permanent lease. “Rent to own” will just be rent.

Even Apple is thinking about a “hardware subscription.” You’ll rent your phone and not own it.  But you’ll be happy with all the new features – while writing checks forever.  So, what does that mean?

You will always be beholden to someone or something other than yourself.

Property rights mean self-interested monitors. No owned creatures are in danger of extinction. No owned forests are in danger of being leveled. No one kills the goose that lays the golden eggs when it is his goose.

-Prof Thomas Sowell (Knowledge and Decisions)

In effect, you will be “owned” by everyone that is renting you stuff, and note that I didn’t say sell you something. Selling means permanent ownership to do with as you please for as long as you want.  In renting, you lose ownership and possible wealth building – how do you build equity with things you don’t have?

For Americans, the most common way to wealth building is to own your own home.  What is going on now, with home prices soaring, is for equity firms and other companies buying them up as an “extension” of the AirBnB phenomenon except it’s permanent.

There are already complaints that people are getting priced out of a lot of markets by companies with pockets deeper  than the vast majority of individuals,

Now take that to everything else.

Freedom is built on the Pillar of the Right to Private Property. It’s also clear that when you own something (in most cases), you take care of it because it is YOURS. While he is talking about Government, it can be done otherwise.

We already see what Big Companies, mostly Leftist led, are doing to Free Speech and actual Government actions with Disney threatening to “take action” against Florida Gov Ron DeSantis just for signing a bill that prevents the sexualization of little kids from Kindergarten through Third Grade.  Most Parents are thankful – they want to preserve the innocence of their children for as long as possible.  But Government workers (e.g., teachers and staff) believe THEY “own” your children – to do with as they want.

But are starting to kill those “gooses” and take no responsibility when things go really sideways.

Yes, a mishmash of ideas here, but you get what I mean – Sowell’s observation doesn’t just apply to “real property” but to we humans as well if taken to the next couple of steps.

‘Grok Gauntlets – Yep, Time to Get Started. Helps to Start at the Beginning!

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 13:30 +0000

‘Grok Gauntlets – I describe them as the same as journalists’ “Round Tables” with candidates but with much better Conservative oriented questions. Generally, FAR different questions to boot. But in order to get to the ‘Grok Gauntlets, we need to do the invites.  To do the invites, we have to know everyone that is running.  So last night, I spent some time over at the FEC site – Federal Election Committee.  If you are running for Federal Office, do you have a lot to do!  But it’s a handy reference to see who has signed up and who hasn’t.

Soooo….here’s who I know for now.  All are Republicans, so assume they are unless marked with a D (Ray Buckley, NH Dem Party Chair, very seldom allows for Primaries).

US Congress

NH First Congressional District (NH CD-1)

  • Acciard, Julian Marc
  • Baxter, Tim
  • Huff Brown, Gail
  • Kilbane, Mark
  • Mowers, Matt
  • Pappas, Chris CD-1 incumbent (D)

NH Second Congressional District (NH CD-2)

  • Black, Scott
  • Bryk, William Michael
  • Burns, Robert Andrew
  • Cozzens, Jeff
  • Greeson, Jeffrey
  • Kauffman, Jeremy
  • Kuster, Annie CD-2 incumbent (D)
  • Poirier, Dean Allan
  • Williams, Lily Tang


  • Bolduc, Don
  • Hassan, Margaret Wood incumbent (D)
  • Lamare, Dennis R
  • LaPlante, Edmond Joseph JR
  • Martin, Andy
  • Smith, Kevin H
  • Morse, Chuck
  • Sharpe, Thomas V
  • Sivalingam, Tejasinha


Now, State-wide NH based races don’t appear there but here’s what I know about the race for NH Governor


  • Sherman, Tom (D)
  • Riley, Thad
  • Sununu, Chris T incumbent (R)
  • Testerman, Karen

Now, there’s a few folks listed above that I’ve never heard of before (e.g., Sharpe? Bryk? Kauffman? Poirier?) so I’m betting there’s a few more.  So if you know of anyone that I’ve missed, let me know and I’ll add them to the list.

Also, we’re going to try to get video of them and their stump speeches.  I’ve already got one volunteer (Thanks, Dave!) to help out as there are just too many of them and too many places to get to. I’d love more for better coverage, so email me at if you might be interested.  Just let me know where you’re located and I can start watching for someone coming to your area.

And if you happen to know anyone on any campaign staff, let them I’m looking for them.

Oregon Makes Assisted Suicide “Legal” For Everyone

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 12:00 +0000

Oregon has rapidly devolved into the template for utopia. The Left’s Eden, the promised land. A place where criminals have more rights than law-abiding citizens and defending yourself is a crime. But if you don’t like it, the same state says it’s okay to kill yourself.

If that transition they convinced you you needed doesn’t make your problem go away, just kill yourself.

Oregon legalized assisted suicide a while back, but “the, please kill yourself lobby” wasn’t content with that loss of life. The law only applied to state residents, but that is no longer the case. The state has been convinced (not that they needed much encouragement) to stop enforcing the restriction. Now, anyone can go to Oregon to die.

So, why is that bad?

Lobbyists will pressure other states to do the same, but that’s not all.


The assisted suicide lobby wants to approve out-of-state-assisted suicide requests via telehealth and to send the lethal drugs by mail to the out-of-state requestor.


Imagine if this was widely available during the unnecessary COVID lockdowns and quarantines. Now consider that the first state that balks will result in a court case challenging the constitutionality of denying its residents the right to die.

Before you say that’s preposterous, take a step back.

Look at the last few years.

The whole of the COVID policy experiment. Government entities transitioning children without parental consent. Our borderless invasion culture. Non-stop spending. It’s all planned misery by mandate.

Cloward-Piven plus. The weight and momentum seem impossible to slow or stop, which for many will present itself as a reasonable enough excuse to end it all, and that’s really what they have always been after.

Eugenics is the foundation of the real progressive utopia. If you legalize suicide, the people you deliberately make miserable will solve your problem for you. Instead of you having to kill them, they might kill themselves with the government’s blessing.

Or, you can just make it look that way.

And it’s all legal.

This is Terrifying: They Are Developing Self-Spreading Contagious “Vaccines”

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 10:30 +0000

I can see why scientists would think this is a good idea. Create a vaccine that self-distributes to a vulnerable population. Especially something like Ebola. But just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.


“The idea is that instead of a vaccine staying in one person’s body, the vaccine itself would infect them in such a way that they could pass on vaccination to others around them, much as they would otherwise pass on a disease.


There are scores of things wrong with this, not the least of which is the recent example of the COVID19 scheme. An ineffective, unsafe drug was fear-spread into a populace, most of whom never needed it, and a statistically significant number of recipients were harmed.

The list of potential effects is so long that most harms will never be associated with the vaccination campaign.

And that was a global phenomenon. Governments across the planet went all in, some more than others, to inject populations with a dangerous chemical its manufacturers knew was unsafe and ineffective.

The next step is to make them self-spreading and forever?


The vaccines use cytomegalovirus (CMVs), a group that belongs to the herpes family. According to Mayo Clinic, once infected with the virus, your body retains the virus for life.

“CMV spreads from person to person through body fluids, such as blood, saliva, urine, semen, and breast milk. There is no cure, but there are medications that can help treat the symptoms.”


This is unethical. It’s also extremely dangerous. You randomly receive the equivalent of a treatment you did not authorize then have a reaction that will last forever. Well, they can help treat the symptoms.

Wow, I literally do not feel better.

And it’s a program only our “leaders” (please refer to COVID19 vaccines for evidence of why they are unqualified) need know or decide. Convince a few Typhoid Mary types to get started, and boom, you eventually “vaccinate” millions of people without their knowledge or consent.

Heck, you don’t even need to convince them. COVID19 showed us that people will line up even after the evidence indicates there is more risk than reward.

Or, just jab a few folks with whatever, they don’t even need to know.

And once the technology is viable, no law can stop it.

Chemical warfare on a whole new level.

Actually, we’re already on that level, this will just save billions in advertising and pressure campaigns.

Forget the Slap, They Need a Boot

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-03-31 01:30 +0000

The fall of the Oscars can be called a documentary about the demise of the Left and Progressive Movement. The movie industry no longer produces any quality entertainment deserving of an award.

This decline has forced the Academy to find a new purpose in its annual soirée. That purpose is to display how WOKE the Hollywood elite are and how this makes them better than the rest of us.

The apparent shortcoming in the Progressive WOKE is that there is no one to realize that they are on a trajectory to obsolescence. Their ratings are falling in politics, entertainment, and society, and they don’t realize that fewer people listen to their drivel. This year’s Academy Award suffered from its lowest ratings ever until The Slap. Then Social Media went into hyper speed and people tuned in to see if there would be a counter-slap. They tuned out, disappointed that it never came. 

Over 40M viewers tuned in to celebrate their favorite movies and stars eight years ago, but the current version garnered less than 9M. The Academy has successfully made itself irrelevant. Just like the Progressive, they have lost contact with the average American. In their effort to display how incredibly impactful they are, they have shown they have lost their followers. They have finally gone so far astray that everyone took the other turn at the fork.

According to the Academy, if a particular film does not have enough diversity on the set, that movie will no longer be eligible for an Oscar. Los Angeles Magazine reports, future Oscar hopefuls will be required to submit a summation of the movie’s cast and crew’s race, gender, sexual orientation, and disability status. They are modeling the Biden administration, where diversity won out over excellence. They neglected to observe the results of that change in priority.

The Swag Bag is a slap to Main Street America. These ultra-rich performers are rewarded for their appearance with $140,000 worth of items emblematic of their stature.

  • Plot of land in Scotland that automatically gives the recipient a Lord/Lady title
  • Extra virgin olive oil infused with gold flakes
  • A voucher for plastic surgery on the arms
  • Complimentary project management services on a remodel or construction project
  • $10,000 worth of Botox, fillers or other procedures from a New York doctor
  • Sustainably harvested honey from New Zealand
  • A tour of Turin Castle in Scotland, including a three-night stay, a private butler and a bagpiper on arrival
  • Four-night stay at a San Diego-area spa
  • Skincare products said to be like a salad (but for your face) 
  • Hand soap that’s supposed to clean your jewelry while you wash your hands
  • Games like Exploding Kittens 
  • An inflatable orca floatie for your pool from PETA
  • Karma Nuts, which sound like fancy cashews
  • Life coaching, self-love coaching, and private training sessions from three different companies

The self-love coaching says it all. These ego-maniacs will need this treatment when they realize that nobody knows their name.

Can the Academy change course and become relevant once more? Yes, but only if they admit they have lost their way and realize that Americans are about excellence. We do not care if you are black, white, gay, straight, or suffer from an emotional challenge. We want a memorable performance that future stars can dream of matching. Then you won’t need to slap the host for people to tune in.

Women’s Defense League to Hold 7th Annual 2A Rally

The Women’s Defense League will be holding our 7th Annual 2nd Amendment Rally at the State House in Concord on Saturday, April 2nd from noon to 2 PM – 2A FREEDOM RALLY 2022.

The Women’s Defense League made history several years ago when we held the first-ever 2nd Amendment Rally organized and run by women in the State of New Hampshire, and it keeps growing every year.

Out-of-state money keeps pouring into the hands of advocates who push gun control legislation each year, in one of the safest states in the country. This session, as with every session over the past several years, the legislation being pushed has once again failed.

This year; however, the current resident of the White House has threatened to ban common semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines, and to hold firearm manufacturers liable for the actions of criminals. This would be like holding automobile manufacturers liable for the actions of drunk drivers and only works to make it more expensive and difficult for law-abiding citizens to obtain firearms.

The Women’s Defense League, our members and supporters, want to send a message to the out-of-touch legislators in D.C., including our very own in the Granite State, that we, the people of New Hampshire, take our 2nd Amendment rights seriously.

Speakers will include members of the New Hampshire Legislature, former members of the legislature, and current board members of the Women’s Defense League.

The 2nd Amendment is one of the most important Women’s Rights issues in modern history. The Women’s Defense League not only fights for these Women’s Rights but we teach women how to safely and accurately shoot so they too may protect themselves and their families.



The Women’s Defense League is a grassroots NH organization that trains and educates women on gun safety as well as advocates for 2nd Amendment Rights at the State House.

Transgender Affirming Govt Teachers and Counselors Killed a Girl With Their Transgender Identity Politics

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 22:30 +0000

…“I received a phone call from the coroner’s office,” Martinez said, her eyes full of tears…The woman then told Martinez that her daughter had taken her own life the night before. “

That’s a snippet from a much longer post at The Daily Signal about a mother losing her daughter as a Govt school first took her daughter and changed her into a boy and then moved her daughter out of her house with very restrictive visitation rights.

Again, the assumption was that this Mom, Abby Martinez, would cause her daughter to kill herself over transitioning. That says to me, “We don’t believe you love your daughter enough to keep her alive.” They even told Mom precisely that.

And then she killed herself anyways. Blame it on the Government schools. Here’s more with my emphasis (reformatted):

Yaeli had struggled with depression since her early teens. When she entered high school, her mother said, Yaeli befriended another girl who identified as a boy and suggested to Yaeli that the reason for her depression might be that she was actually a boy.

So this high school kid has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology? No, of course not – but this is a case of ROGD (Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria) where it is peer pressure that makes the change in young teens to believe that they are something that they are not and if they “become a boy,” all their problems would just disappear. How’d that work out, eh?

And the school system played right along:

…Yaeli attended an LGBTQ club at school that affirmed her questioning of her gender. Her counselor at school also affirmed her decision to begin socially transitioning from female to male.

I’ve already posted about teachers looking to turn/groom kids to become gay or transgender several times. Here’s one more example except this one ends in tragedy. I hope it ends up in a large settlement from lawsuits all the way around. And Mom was never in the loop

“I don’t know if the schools, they supposed to let us know what’s going on or not, but they never send me any note about telling me, ‘We need to talk about your daughter,’” Martinez, who is originally from El Salvador, said.

There they go again – Policy JBAB – Transgender and Non-Conforming.  Districts giving themselves the Power to lie to Parents by omission or commission.  Districts telling parents that THEY no longer matter – in fact, you parents, YOU are the problem (at least according to the school staff that “educated” that little girl that her Mom hated her):

…Martinez recalls taking her daughter out to eat and asking her to share what was really going on in her life.  Yaeli told her mom: “I don’t want to talk about it because you guys are not going to be supportive.”

And the Government agreed – and look at the last line from CA’s version of NH’s DCYF:

When Yaeli was 16, she moved out of her mother’s home. Because Martinez expressed concerns over her daughter’s “transitioning” to a boy, Yaeli’s school psychologist recommended that she would be better off living away from home. Martinez lost custody of her daughter to the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.

So Government not only groomed Yaeli to distrust her Mom, Government fulfilled what many of us hold (because we believe our lyin’ eyes) – the Proper Role of Government is now to separate children from their parents because of WrongThink. Identity Politics trumps biology. Government “caring” trumps a Mother’s love.

Martinez says she was allowed to visit her daughter for one hour a week. After six months, she got two hours.

The logic of the Department of Children and Family Services was that “if we keep [Yaeli] out of your home, she [will] have more chance to survive,” Martinez recalled. “She’s not going to try to commit suicide.” 

Simply for questioning simple biology. NOWHERE ELSE, no ONE else talked about the depression that started this off. And for all of the assurances of first the school and then CFS, it ended badly:

…Martinez watched as her daughter struggled to find happiness and relief from her depression.  “She was taking the [cross-sex] hormones; she was not happy. She changed her name, [but] was not happy,” Martinez said. “She adopted a dog because that was going to make her happy. None of it, everything that they’ve done, didn’t work.”

…She learned that her daughter had knelt on railroad tracks and raised her hands toward the sky as a train approached.

I dryly note that Identity Politics took over the LA County Department of Children and Family services when asked for a comment:

We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Andrew M., as well as to the LGBTQIA community which advocates relentlessly to protect its youngest and most vulnerable members from such tragedies.

It’s clear what the Democrat / Progressive Political Group Totem Pole has families – at the bottom. That comment ALSO shows where the true sorrow is for this Government agency – not with the family but with a “community”. Yeah, absolutely rubbish. That “community” caused the problem and then did nothing to protect that young girl from killing herself. Govt fought for THEM and not for Mom and her family.

Politics trumped Family. How’s THAT gonna turn out in the end, eh?

What they ARE doing is protecting themselves and their victimhood status as a marginalized “community.” That freely decided that their identity also trumped the need to get that girl the help she needed with the root cause – depression.

And for any of you who are going to try to take me on over that statement, make my day. I spent over 30 years dealing with depression illnesses  (and ADHD – such a combo, along with a lot of other mental illness acronyms) with TMEW, the Eldest, and the Youngest. While I don’t know the sadness of Abby Martinez losing her daughter twice over, I lived the horror and sadness and feelings of “what can I do? I can’t fix them!” for years.

Fortunately, we got through it mostly, and they are doing better. But Government and a school district painted (in the verbiage of the day) Abby Martinez as “an oppressor” towards her “oppressed” daughter. And then, IMHO killed Yaeli.

Now tell me – who is the oppressor in this case? Mom?

Absolutely not.

Chuck Morse: Accept Defeat Quietly, and Grab As Much Pork as You Can Along the Way

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 21:00 +0000

At a recent event in Rye, U.S. Senate candidate Chuck Morse gushes about bringing “the 603 to DC.” Maggie Hassan has done the reverse, he adds, bringing “DC to the 603.” Sounds promising, right?

I wait to hear that Hassan supported Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates. Or that she wants to eliminate the Electoral College, which would make New Hampshire irrelevant in presidential elections. She also voted against the 2017 Tax Cuts and Job Act, which benefitted nearly every taxpayer in our state. She even supported the multi-trillion, inflationary “Build Back Better,” which is just a repackaged Green New Deal.

Morse doesn’t mention any of this obvious evidence that Maggie has abandoned New Hampshire values and embraced the DC swamp.

The Q&A portion arrives and still we don’t know what his issue is with the unpopular Hassan, or what he means by bringing “the 603 to DC.”

Then, responding to a question, Morse finally explains his beef: Maggie hasn’t brought in enough pork! New Hampshire got the smallest goody bag from the 2021 infrastructure deal, so why is Hassan bragging about it? This is true, of course, we did get less than any other state, but I thought Republicans are supposed to be against taxpayer boondoggles. Against increasing government spending in regular times, but especially during the worst inflation in 40 years. Does Morse aspire to be the next Senator Robert Bird, dubbed “King of Pork” even by those who ignored his KKK past?

A resident asks about the Executive Council’s buckling to pressure to accept federal funds to push COVID shots and establish a privacy-busting vaccine database in New Hampshire. Morse shrugs as if the answer is self-evident: “The State of New Hampshire lives on federal money,” he says. He doesn’t get why the audience is surprised, much less horrified.

Another resident then asks why Morse hasn’t pushed Governor Sununu harder on the GOP’s congressional maps. Does he see how Sununu’s “smell test” comments will be used against candidates, including Morse, who voted for the maps?

“You don’t know how much arguing there is behind closed doors,” Morse answers defensively. However, he adds, after any “debate” he supports the outcome.

That, we finally find out, is what he means by the “603 way”— arguing in private and accepting defeat quietly. And nabbing as much pork as possible along the way.

No fight. No win. No thank you.

Hiding the Decline – Global Temerpatures are Down 15% from 2016

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 19:30 +0000

NOAA and NASA report that 2021 was the 6th warmest year on record, but they left something out. It also represents a net loss of 15% in global temperature since 2016.


OAA’s annual highest global temperature anomaly measurement is year-end 2016 which is now shown as 0.99 degrees C (second highest year is 2020 at 0.98 degrees C) compared to its year-end 2021 annual anomaly measurement of 0.84 degrees C with a +/-0.15 degrees C confidence level. This year end 2021 global temperature anomaly measurement decline amounts to a 15% global temperature anomaly measurement collapse since peak year 2016.


Since 2016, the global temperature, still likely to have been massaged by NOAA, has been going down.

It’s The Sun Stupid

In 2019 NASA admitted that we’d just ended a Grand Solar Maximum, which – combined with natural forces like El Nino explains 2016 being as warm as it was, even without any fudging. But if CO2 is driving climate, then the 2018/2019 El Nino should have been warmer, but it was not. And the global temperature peaks for all years (using NOAA’s Data) have formed a distinctive downward trend.

The 6th hottest year, trailing from a solar maximum into a solar minimum, won’t hold the honor when the next El Nino comes along, but the next La Nina will likely be even cooler.

The sun )again, for the cheap seats) has a lot more to say about the earth’s temperature than grant-hungry, money-laundering special interest groups or climateers and their fashionable computer models.

Another problem for the warmists is that for nearly 40 years and trillions of dollars wasted on climate plans within plans, CO has continued to rise.

Firstly, there’s not a damn thing the Western nations sacrificing their people and their economies on the alter of the Climate Cult can do about it. That growth comes from places like Africa, India, Russia, and China. And they have no plans to tap the breaks. It’s full speed toward the second or first world – ahead!

Shutting down the entire economy wouldn’t slow the rise, so stop that, which with Biden as president, America is about to discover.

Secondly, the steady rise confounds their climate models and the notion that a) CO2 is driving warming, b) they can do something about it, and c) that “the something” has or will have any effect.

If by “effect” you mean diverting trillions of dollars in other people’s money from productive to unproductive uses, then congratulations, you’ve had enormous success. If you mean having an impact on the planet’s temperature, sorry – you’re batting .000 right alongside the success rate of your cataclysmic prognostications.

Nature continues to do what it does. The planets move around the sun, which changes the climate on earth. And no amount of Marxism will change that, no matter what you call it.


NOAA and NASA are notorious for fudging. They call them adjustments, but they all favor one side of the plan for predictable reasons. The one that gets them more funding and headlines. So, the 2016 to 2021 decline is a problem, and it’s a big problem. “Actual global temperature anomaly measurements by NOAA, NASA, UK Met Office, UAH and RSS all show downward anomaly trends.” You can’t just undo that. Too many people have seen it.

What to do, what to do?

You know, this might be a good time for another round of hiding the decline emails.

Teacher: ” Whose Your Mommy?” – I’m Your Mommy Now!

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 18:00 +0000

I keep seeing things like this all the time popping up in reports from schools in which teachers are demonstrably telling students that their parents hate them – so we will be your parents.  We ARE your parents – your biological ones don’t want you anymore. That’s the message teachers are sending kids.

A staff member at Eau Claire North High School put up a LGBTQ poster featuring bears in rainbow colors with a message that targets parents, according to the news outlet Wisconsin Right Now. The staff member’s poster appears to state that she will be the “mom” of students who identify as LGBTQ. The poster states:

Wisconsin Right Now reported that other parents have found more teachers also added the poster to their doors in the school.

Can’t make it much plainer than that, can you?

The teachers are advocating for kids to leave their parents emotionally and hang on to them instead.  This is the Govt deciding that the kids should no longer belong to Mom and Dad. Just like with the ever expanding Welfare State, look to Govt to be your parents.  And just like the lawsuit against the Manchester School District where the staff deliberately lied about counseling a young girl to go transgender without telling Mom, other districts are doing the same.

Look at this wording carefully (emphasis mine):

In late February 2022, teachers at Eau Claire Area School District were reportedly told that parents did not not need to know about their children choosing to change their gender identities. The news outlet Wisconsin Spotlight reported that teachers in the school district were participating in training on “Safe Spaces” when a slide in the presentation featured the comment. The presentation stated:

Remember, parents are not entitled to know their kids’ identities. That knowledge must be earned. Teachers are often straddling this complex situation. In ECASD, our priority is supporting the student.

Government’s Identity Politics is now trumping family ties. And Government is responsible and is behind it (what other conclusion can you make from the above?).

Hey, Groomers, leave our kids alone! Hey, other teachers! When are you going to stand up, speak up, and tell these groomers to knock it off as YOU are making Parents hate ALL OF US???

And you wonder why teachers are now being viewed with skepticism?  How are we to know if you are playing up the middle as teachers of yore did, knowing they were there to educate and not separate?  After all, look at the policies we are running into, with school districts giving themselves the Power to lie to parents over the transgender status of their child. It automatically assumes that parents are EVIL and will abuse or abandon their children – so schools will be their loving parents instead.

With our tax monies as payment.

New at the GrokStore

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 16:30 +0000

We launched our latest graphic in the GrokStore last night, and you can get it on more items and in more colors than anything we’ve released to date.

I Stand with Liberty.

People keep talking about who or what they stand with, but how about Liberty?

America has been the place the world comes to for years, from everywhere. It’s not a racist misogynist nation of haters. It is still the land of opportunity. But who will stand with her?

We wanted something simple that made the case Hey! I stand with Liberty.



The graphic is available on shirts for men, women, and kids. You can get it on a mug, a sticker, a tote bag, or an iPhone case (almost every model). It’s available on a hoodie (pullover or zippered sweatshirt). And while it looked best in black or white, sever styles come in multiple colors.

Note – all the color and dark fabric versions are under I Stand With Liberty (Too) but only because the graphic for white doesn’t work on dark or colored material, so I had to create the items separately.

And all the proceeds will go to support our operating costs.


And, naturally, you can also get products in any of the other collections. Lose the Fossils, not the Fuel, Live Free or Die, Let’s Go Brandon, I’ve Been Vaccinated Against Tyranny, The Deplorable Collection, Taxation is Theft, Keep Calm and Return Fire, And Stop Trying to ‘Mass Up’ My New Hampshire.

Everything is printed and shipped in the US but yes, as an FYI – The mug they use before printing is made in China. If that’s an issue, we understand. We are still looking for a similar service to address that concern.

DeSantis Sets the Bar for GOP Hopefuls

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 15:00 +0000

Florida is the Sunshine State, and Governor DeSantis has done his best to keep it the beacon of freedom since 2019. He kept his people free and safe during the Pandemic and had the state economy thriving while other states tried to get traction.

DeSantis has been a fearless leader who never sways from his Conservative ideals and is one of the reasons that Florida is a destination for people escaping blue states like Michigan and New York. He had a tough act to follow in Rick Scott, who had to leave the office because of Florida Term Limits, but he has more than filled Scott’s shoes.

The Governor signed into law this week the Parental Rights in Education Bill. This Bill protects Florida’s children in Grades K through 3 from exposure to various forms of sexual education. HB 1557 ensures that parents of young children can send their kids to kindergarten without gender ideology being injected into classroom instruction. Parents will be notified about and have the right to decline healthcare services offered at schools for their kids.

This law is not only a win for young students but also for parents who teachers and administrators are working tirelessly to keep out of the classroom. School Boards and Administrators contend that they are the educated experts and know what is best for the children in their charge. They universally claim that the parent has no place in the education process. Of course, indoctrination of children is much more difficult when under the watchful eye of parents.

Parents are fighting back, but they need to press harder. In New Hampshire, we had a very active group of concerned parents running for School Board positions. One out of the group of nine was successful in replacing an incumbent. Some may say that is a small victory, but we need a sweep. With CRT permeating all grades and multiple lawsuits against the local SAU, we need to cut the problem off at the head. We need to displace these superintendents and directors. They are the poison in the veins.

We all need to funnel our inner Ron D. In three years, he has faced down every issue. He does his research, establishes the best resolution for the state, and gets it passed. He takes criticism with every move, but it seems to energize him. He may be the lead pick for the GOP candidate in 2024, but right now, he wants to be the best Governor for Florida.

On the other end of the spectrum is Gavin Newsom. The WOKE Governor of California is driving the state to bankruptcy and moral depravity. Every decision is for the benefit of the Left. Newsom’s comments on the Bill signed by DeSantis are laughable. Newsom went to Twitter:



Newsom calls this Bill monstrous to kids when his state considers a Parental Freedom Bill. The Freedom Bill allows “parents” to dispose of their newborn up to four weeks after birth with no penalty. The bill may be freedom for the parents but death for their child. That is monstrous.

Did Dems Rain on Their Own Commuter Rail Parade

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 13:30 +0000

There’s a bill working its way through the New Hampshire legislature that prohibits funding commuter rail in any form with taxes on GraniteState residents. Pass or fail, there’s another Boogey-they-them thing (see, I didn’t say man) that might derail it. Something they insisted on for months.

It is this thing the Left wanted to make more permanent.

No, it’s not the virus socialism itself, though that did put a kink in public transportation revenues. Mandating remote work and learning was that thing they made you do, which could be another nail in the commuter rail coffin.

The work from home lockdown, quarantine, zoom-meeting culture fostered by the COVID Cult – primarily center Left control freaks, and their army of Karens-has made the idea of commuting at all an archaic construct. And between investments in broadband infrastructure and green wolves crying planetary doom, the home office has become more desirable than ever.

Why put on pants when you can teleconference from the comfort of your own wherever?

Related: Amtrak Wish-List Includes Rail into NH No One Will Use

All of these things are well-advertised objectives of the Left, and each of them undermines the idea that New Hampshire should sell its soul to run commuter rail from the state line as far as our State Capitol.

The Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy crunched some numbers, and it’s not good news for the choo-choo fetishists.


  • [T] he DOT expects lower Capitol Corridor ridership after COVID than it had projected in 2014.
  • Nationally, commuter rail operators expect emptier trains.
  • “The nation’s biggest commuter railroads are preparing for potentially permanent shifts in daily ridership, declines that in some cases could threaten their long-term viability,”
  • “The changes are based on expectations that many office workers will continue to work from home at least part-time for years after the Covid-19 pandemic subsides.”
  • The American Public Transportation Association reports that weekday ridership counts for commuter rail are down to between 25%-55% of pre-pandemic levels.
  • “The MBTA commuter rail system is averaging about 45,000-weekday passenger trips versus roughly 120,000 before Covid-19, and officials don’t expect a full rebound even after companies bring most workers back to offices,” the Journal reported.


A party obsessed with consensus, perceived, manufactured, or otherwise, out to be able to see this forest for the trees. What was already a very shaky proposition – and in our estimation, nothing more than a trophy for them to put on their progressive awards shelf – has a whole new hurdle.

There was no good reason to put 1.3 million people on the hook for something almost none of them would have used before the pandemic.

With the workspace-culture shifting and people leaving urban for rural to take advantage of remote offices, a commuter rail corridor run by a money pit doing business as the Massachusetts Transit Authority makes less sense.

Unless the goal is, as I noted, to give Democrats something to put on their resume. Digging a big hole in which they can burn even more of the taxpayer’s money.

That’s all Commuter rail would ever be, but I’m not saying we should bail on rail. Rail is a great way to move freight, which adds revenue where commuter rail wastes it. If New Hampshire incentivized private investment or invested in repairs and upgrades to existing rail routes, it could lead to money coming in instead of burning it in the pit of commuter rail.

Saint Joan of Ed

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-03-30 12:00 +0000

In Mark Twain’s wonderful book, Joan of Arc, he describes a scene in which Joan, having driven the English out of France, is asked by the newly crowned French king to name anything she wants as a reward.

She says that she doesn’t want anything for herself, but she knows that the people of her village are hard-pressed to pay their taxes and wishes that they didn’t have to. The king calls in the royal tax collector and tells him to excuse her village from taxation forever.

Fast forward several hundred years. Joan is now everywhere in France. There are buildings and streets named after her. She appears on stamps. She is honored in a hundred different ways. But the people who live in her village are paying taxes again.

The one thing she asked for, she didn’t get. Instead, she got a bunch of things she didn’t ask for.

I often think about Joan when I look at what’s happened in our public schools. The one thing that the state supreme court said that the state is supposed to provide is ‘the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and learning necessary to participate intelligently in the American political, economic, and social systems of a free government.’

Can you participate intelligently in those systems if you can’t read, write, understand statistics, follow and construct a logical argument, and recognize a specious one? No, you can’t. Those things are necessary.

Can you participate intelligently in those systems if you can’t speak a foreign language, play a sport or a musical instrument, calculate a derivative, weld two pieces of metal together, or set up a spreadsheet? Yes, you can. Those things — while interesting and important for some people to know — are not necessary.

But our schools are utterly failing to provide what is necessary (as evidenced by the fact that only 40% of New Hampshire students are proficient in English and mathematics) while falling all over themselves (and walking all over taxpayers) to provide what is not necessary.

Like Joan, the court asked for one thing, which it didn’t get:  a solid grounding for students in literacy and logical thought. Instead, it got a bunch of things — including transportation, therapy, meals, daycare, support for hobbies, job training — that it didn’t ask for.

Joan, for her trouble, was burned at the stake for driving the English out of the kingdom of France. One wonders what fate awaits those of us who are trying to drive the Entitled out of the fiefdom of School Funding.
