Did You Decolonize Your Thanksgiving? (How about Decolonizing THIS, Instead?)

Granite Grok - Sat, 2021-11-27 20:30 +0000

Missionaries from Wokeistan have been preaching it for years. You need to decolonize Thanksgiving. You know, apologize for being the indigenous relatives of those who conquered those indigenous people who came before them.

A process of genocide, slavery, and renewal that is as old as human habitation on this or any continent. Their faux-reflection of white guilt projected on others to advance a political agenda.

It’s something of an intellectual circle-jerk with “experts” recruiting ground troops to sell a flawed (or at least incomplete) progressive narrative about the past—one whose irony is lost on them.

Their mission today is itself, a cultural conquest with a body count. Just ask anyone who has died from The Jab, killed themself in forced isolation, overdosed on an opioid carried across the open southern border, or during a riot, or some other expression of Progress.

The Political Left is reimaging the American Constitutional Republic. It is rescinding the rights, property, and persons of its ancestors.

Denying the existence of borders or laws that interfere with their plan and taking from us the fruits of our labors. Robbing us through policy, denying basic resources by making them unaffordable, and introducing toxins through fear or force into our bodies.

Not flattering it is.

People born on these lands for generations are being labeled as second-class citizens, and some are dying. Their culture, erased.

The idea of the individual before the state is being beaten out of them or at least their children to create a new world in the new world that looks alarmingly like the one our ancestors left to come here and start over.

There is, of course, no new world left on this planet to which we might escape this recent tyranny. And I doubt they’ll pander to us by allowing autonomous reservations on which we might reside. Their cleansing is political and absolute and if allowed to continue will deny every one of every race or creed – except for a handful of elites – even the most basic rights.

If anything, we should decolonize that.

Notable Quote – It Really IS all about Productivity!

Granite Grok - Sat, 2021-11-27 19:00 +0000

Wage rates are lower in Indonesia than in the United States because workers in Indonesia are willing to accept less; they are willing to accept less because their alternative opportunities are so much poorer;

their alternatives are poorer than the alternative opportunities available to American workers because the marginal productivity of workers in the United States is far higher than the corresponding productivity of Indonesian workers; and the differences in productivity at the relevant margins reflect the much greater productivity of the economic system in the United States.

-Pay Heyne (The Morality of Labor Unions)

Translation: we do far more, make more things, with far less “inputs.” It is what gives us our standard of living. A richer economy has many more choices and paths to follow than does a poor economy. It is the reason why a troop of ditch diggers equipped only with shovels and donkey pulled carts earn far less than two Americans do with a backhoe and a dump truck.

And what makes that available?  Capital.  Regardless of what the Socialists/Communists want you to believe, it is Capital with Labor that makes the difference.

Without Capital, we’d all be ditch diggers with donkeys as helpers.

Another Crisis at Belknap County Nursing Home

Granite Grok - Sat, 2021-11-27 17:30 +0000

Another crisis at the Belknap county nursing home has arisen. It must be dealt with on Monday, Thursday is too late. In a story at the Laconia Daily Sun, Michael Mortensen asked the right question, “why the commissioners were resorting to a special meeting rather than waiting for the commission’s next regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday?”

Many answers to the question are long standing issues that are well known and have been considered for years. If you are familiar with the proper method of reading the Laconia Daily Sun, you’ll know you need to sort through a bit of fluff before you find the nugget of truth. And in this case, it is this; “the requirement that all health-care workers must, by Dec. 5, be vaccinated against COVID.”

Joe Biden has demanded workers be forced to accept an experimental medical treatment and highly educated medical providers are willing to be fired rather than take the risk.

We want to thank NH State Rep Mike Sylvia, Chair, Belknap County Delegation for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to

The county administration counted on these workers knuckling under to the pressure to accept the jab. Now with a week to figure out what to do the commissioners will look for a Hail Mary pass. While Biden controls the printing press and can freely (at great expenses to the citizens) throw money at problems, the county commissioners are limited in their response. They might squeeze the county taxpayers for more money; something private nursing homes can’t do (yet are forced to compete against). Or they might consider giving exemptions to those who conscientiously stand for bodily integrity and autonomy; a right of every New Hampshire citizen.

While there have been many calls for Governor Sununu to bring the legislature into a special session to address these vaccine mandates, he has chosen to ignore the brewing crisis.

Having been around the block a time or two, I won’t be surprised to read the follow-up story in the Laconia Daily Sun which blames the county delegation for the crisis.

Science or Scam

Granite Grok - Sat, 2021-11-27 16:00 +0000

Panic! The sky is falling and all our coastal cities will be under water in ten years!

Wait, that was predicted twenty some years ago wasn’t it? Now, though, yet another environmental group decided to block morning traffic coming to work in NYC because the “city will be under water by 2200.”  So is the planet warming? Doesn’t seem so much so as our winters have been very winter like and summers, well summer like,  but those who ascribe to the end of the world global warming theory insist it is and we Americans are responsible and must fix it.

Only thing wrong with this narrative is here in the U.S. we have gone to excessive extremes to clean up our acts while countries like China, Russia are exempt from the Paris Accords. Oh please.

Yes, we are a large country but nowhere near large enough to do what environmentalists expect us to do all by ourselves. Plus these same activists have tied our hands behind our backs in the energy production fields. The only true clean energy producing system known is atomic energy. Somehow it’s taboo to say but I’m saying it: it’s time environmentalists revisited their thinking on it.

Putting the cart before the horse by shutting down our oil and fossil fuels production before there is even any semblance of anything to replace it with is not only dumb it’s criminal. Please forget telling us about solar panels and wind turbines. Those take tons of energy and years to produce and build enough of them and are the least efficient energy producing option. Millions of American homes will be heated this winter by fossil fuels and will be for the next three or four decades at least. This fact escapes the activists who want what they want and want it now!

It will not happen because most American families can not afford the conversions from existing systems even if there were enough panels and turbines.

Already we are experiencing the near doubling of gas and oil prices heading into the cold months and since we are now dependent on foreign oil once again, we can expect shortages and increasing costs. So is this the “Build Back Better” voters were promised or just another political catch phrase?

I think the latter.

Not only will our energy be affected by the Left’s appeasement practices toward any and every sub culture group whether moral or criminal, reasonable or unreasonable or just plain crazy, it will create more division, crime and violence.

So can anyone tell me why we are all supposed to go down and worship at the feet of environmentalists who cannot provide for our immediate survival needs this winter or next, and the ones for the next decade or two? When they have some kind of practical plan besides pie in the sky I’ll be glad to listen.

Until then I’m watching TV reruns.

NH Governor Sununu: You Are Responsible if a Child is Injured or Dies!

Granite Grok - Sat, 2021-11-27 14:30 +0000

Children’s immune systems naturally fight Covid-19 – and they are at ZERO risk to die from the virus. After 19 months, there is not a single confirmed case of a child transmitting and infecting an adult with COVID-19, nor a single recorded hospitalization and/or death of a child from COVID-19 alone.

Sadly that may change due to Governor Sununu’s Covid-19 program to inject an experimental gene therapy “vaccine” into NH’s 125,000 children aged 5-11. Sununu’s program dismisses reports from Germany (here) and Taiwan (here) that reveal death and serious safety concerns regarding their Covid-19 “vaccination” programs for older children aged 12-17.

There’s more. Six weeks ago, Sweden and Denmark halted the use of the Moderna vaccination on those 30-and-under due to potential side effects. A few days later, Iceland banned the Moderna vaccine FOR EVERYONE!

The European Medicines Agency has reported 1,163,356 adverse drug reactions and 30,551 fatalities. The UK Health Security Agency has reported most Covid-19 deaths in England are fully vaccinated. And new research out of Germany shows: “The Higher the (COVID19) Vaccination Rate, the Higher the Excess Mortality.”

Athletes are experiencing serious career ending and mortality issues after being “vaccinated”. This article contains disturbing stories of over 90 athletes, most of them fatalities.

It’s disturbing that Governor Sununu has ignored those alarming statistics and is using public schools to inject our children, where mistakes like this can happen.

Many people see the warning signs and have held off on getting a Covid-19 “vaccine”. They are mocked and labeled “anti-vaxxers”, “vaccine hesitant” and “conspiracy theorists.” They are pressured to “follow the science”… yet the science (and scientists) justify their warranted concerns.

Dr.Robert Malone is an mRNA expert. He is THE mRNA expert… the scientist credited with inventing the mRNA “vaccine” science. At 4:40 of this video, Dr. Malone said some covid “vaccines” make the virus more dangerous.

“What seems to be rolling out is the worst case scenario, where the vaccine in the waning phase is causing virus to replicate more efficiently than it would otherwise. Which is what we call Antibody Dependent Enhancement.”

“The vaccine causes the virus to become more infectious than would happen in the absence of vaccination.”

Dr. Malone’s observations are supported by data from England (here) and Germany (here) that show most Covid-19 related deaths are occurring in people who have been vaccinated. So why does Governor Sununu want to increase the risk to naturally immune children who are at ZERO risk?

The Governor’s answer to that question impacts the flow of Billions of dollars. I hope his decisions have not been influenced by the $93K in donations he received from “Pharmaceutical & Health Products” organizations.

Another source of answers is the US FDA. They recently approved the Pfizer Covid-19 “vaccine” “Comirnaty”. But they have chosen to keep their data hidden from the public.

According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s Children’s Health Defense website,

A FOIA request was submitted “for ‘all data and information for the Pfizer vaccine’, including safety and effectiveness data, adverse reaction reports and a list of active and inactive ingredients.”

The FDA responded it will need 55 years “to fully release all of those documents connected to the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.”

What is the FDA hiding? It only took the FDA 108 days to review the documents and license Pfizer’s COVID-19 “vaccine”, yet Governor Sununu is not concerned the FDA’s approval process will remain secret for 55 years while the Pfizer “vaccine” continues to be pumped into millions of American children.

Governor Sununu is also silent about the Moderna “vaccine” that is now being tested on children as young as 6 months old. That is the SAME “vaccine” that was banned by Sweden and Denmark for those 30-and-under, and banned for everyone in Iceland. It’s unconscionable.

The American Heart Association published a paper in the 71-year old peer reviewed journal “Circulation” that concluded the experimental gene therapy “vaccines” increases heart inflammation.

“We conclude that the mRNA vaccine dramatically increases inflammation on the endothelium and T-cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”

Taiwan has banned Pfizer “vaccine” injections in children 5-11 due to myocarditis issues in “vaccinated” teens. Our children are not lab rats. They are naturally immune. Not a single 5-11 yr old child has died from Covid-19 alone. Based on all of the above, Governor Chris Sununu needs to explain why he is putting our children at increased risk.

Especially when safe, effective, inexpensive and proven treatments are available. Ivermectin obviates the need for anyone to take an experimental gene therapy “vaccine”. The results of Ivermectin as a treatment for Covid-19 are documented and overwhelmingly successful. Ivermectin obliterated Covid-19 cases in Indonesia (here) and Delhi (here). It even worked in Oklahoma nursing homes on those most vulnerable.

Dr. Pierre Kory, MD, testified to the US Congress in 2020:

Ivermectin is “a drug of miraculous impact. It basically obliterates the transmission of this virus. If you take it, you will not get sick. Ivermectin not only is a prophylactic – it was used among 800 healthcare workers, not one got sick; in the 400 who did not get Ivermectin, 237 (58%) got sick.”

When Dr. Robert Malone had Covid, he took Ivermectin instead of an mRNA “vaccine” based on his mRNA technology.

“Have completed a 3 day course of Ivermectin now. Woke up today without coughing for the first time in months.”

And Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted the Covid vaccines did not work as promised.

“It’s waning to the point that you’re seeing more and more people getting breakthrough infections, and more and more of those people who are getting breakthrough infections are winding up in the hospital.”

Even the CDC recommends Ivermectin as a prophylactic!

There are 365 Studies that prove the efficacy of Ivermectin & HCQ, but instead of addressing valid public concerns regarding the “vaccines” based on scientific facts, it appears Governor Sununu’s judgement has led to poor decisions that are turning his world upside down:

  • 10/13/21: Nine citizens who quietly and peacefully objected to the Governor’s Covid-19 program were arrested for no apparent reason at his October 13, 2021 Executive Council meeting;

  • 10/31/21: Calls for an investigation into the 10/13/21 meeting begin

  • 11/01/21: Governor Sununu pressured over 100 State Reps in a closed door meeting to cover up the events on 10/13/21;

  • 11/10/21: Amidst growing calls for an investigation among NH State Legislators, the Belknap County Republican Committee passed a resolution calling for an investigation.

  • 11/19/21: Under pressure from Governor Sununu, the NH GOP disseminated a disinformation / smear campaign to coverup for the governor. That move alienated more of the governor’s political base.

  • 11/19/21: As of this date, six of ten County Republican Committees passed a resolution calling for an investigation into 10/13/21. More Committees are expected to sign resolutions.

Governor Chris Sununu, the science shows our children’s natural immunity protects them from Covid-19. Therefore, you must protect them from being injected with an experimental gene therapy “vaccine” that will potentially cause them severe harm.

Governor, you need to be a leader. Put NH first and implement a statewide program that follows in Dr. Malone’s path to become Covid-free. He obliterated the virus in three days with Ivermectin. Many others have as well!

It’s OK to Call New COVID Variant “Botswana” When Wuhan Was Racist?

Granite Grok - Sat, 2021-11-27 13:00 +0000

There’s a new feral coronavirus variant in the wind, people, so cower in fear. And just in time for the Holidays!

Hide in your homes. Wear masks. Give up on meetings, and holiday parties, family, and friends. Turn your children over to the state for chemical injections and no in-person shopping.

Okay, it’s not that bad yet. I’m just testing the narrative, and while we’re doing that, why is it okay to call this the Botswana Variant?

“New Botswana variant with 32 ‘horrific’ mutations is the most evolved Covid strain EVER and could be ‘worse than Delta’ … “

It carries 32 mutations, many of which suggest it is highly transmissible and vaccine-resistant, and has more alterations to its spike protein than any other variant.

Professor Francois Balloux, a geneticist at University College London, said it likely emerged in a lingering infection in an immunocompromised patient, possibly someone with undiagnosed AIDS.

Changes to the spike make it difficult for current jabs to fight off, because they train the immune system to recognise an older version of this part of the virus.


Why isn’t everyone laughing out loud?

These are the worst vaccines ever made. They are both the most dangerous and the least effective, so even Obergruppenfuehrer Fauci is on board with the “it’s not clear if this strain can evade the vaccines.”


White House COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci said U.S. scientists and other researchers are studying whether a newly discovered CCP virus variant can evade common vaccines, although he stressed that it’s not clear whether the new strain is currently spreading in the United States.


Is he trying to say that there’s a possibility that the vaccine might work this time? I find that unlikely, as it has failed to date to prevent any other strain from doing anything it can do in the unvaccinated.

The prophesied Baskin-Robbins like 32-versions of Botswana will have no trouble evading your pharmaceutical intervention. Unless…

Unless Botswana and its various flavors are a head-fake so the global medical establishment can announce – they’ll be lying, of course – how effective the booster is at protecting you from this new threat.

The booster, if you forgot, is the same old whore in a new dress. It’s just more of the original – a fiscal shot in the arm of its makers and a bit more Jab Roulette in yours.

It won’t be any more effective than the last one or two or however many you end up accepting, but it’s a mistake for all but perhaps a few very high-risk persons. And even then, there are much safer options for pre-treatment and post-treatment without the risks.

But that’s your call. I’m not your doctor. I’m just a guy sharing information from other doctors and researchers that the watchdog media can’t be bothered to share. It’s up to you to decide what it means in your life.

And we can call it Botswana because they don’t have China’s global influence but will Lefties become guilt-ridden? When can we expect the stories about Botswanan’s being discriminated against, or will they stick with African’s in General? How about right away?

Every western nation, including ours, is instituting travel bans from a handful of African nations. It’s another thing that was racist under Trump but is just good policy under a Democrat Administration.

That means no Nancy Pelosi showing up in Dem-built urban ghettoes, telling the locals to be offended and continue life as normal. Well, maybe the new normal which is not our normal because as you well know, we will not comply no matter what you call it.

But we will call it Botswana, Wuhan, and China, or, the more straightforward, more correct name, the flu. A virus almost no one needs to fear but does, and that’s because you keep listening to the likes of Tony Fauci.

But I suppose that’s your choice, at least until you start trying to make it mine.

Prediction Comes True: Legislation Proposed to Deny Insurance Coverage to the Unvaccinated

Granite Grok - Sat, 2021-11-27 01:00 +0000

IN a world where vaccine passports are all the rage, the idea of blocking (any) insurance coverage on the same terms occurred to me early on – and here it is. A NY Democrat is proposing precisely that.



Freedom isn’t free doesn’t mean what you think it means, New York State Assembly-thing Pat Burke. And you are not at all serious about “the do your own part or pay your own way.” Not as a blanket worldview.

Just about everyone you hate would love that.

But you don’t want people educating their children their way. Heck, I doubt you trust them to do much of anything, being a New York Democrat. But let’s skip that and try to stick to your idiot premise.

On the whole, people who refuse a vaccine are prohibited from receiving treatment if they catch the thing you claim the vaccine exists to prevent.

Even if you could pass it, this won’t stand a chance in court.

Being vaccinated might protect people from the tyrannical musings of petty despots like yourself, but it doesn’t do a damn thing to prevent them from getting or spreading COVID19. Discovery and cross-examination would destroy your case in a heartbeat, assuming The Jab hadn’t stopped that heart.

But Burke is nothing if not a persistent despot.


After facing backlash on Twitter, Burke said, “Let me know when smoking and obesity become highly contagious diseases that disrupt every facet of life, overwhelm hospitals, and cost the government trillions of dollars.”


If COVID19 is anything, it’s Rubenesque amassing a significant body count in the more massive among us. And since when did Democrats abandon the scourge of smoking or secondhand smoke as public health emergencies?

You taxed and spent trillions over the last several decades, and if obesity is not an issue, then diet isn’t either, and we kick that Government food pyramid out the front door.

And you know what overwhelms hospitals? The natural right to healthcare was always, in my mind, a lot like what you’ve just suggested. Another power grab by the Left that would allow the social engineers to Pidgeon hole behavior ad nauseum.

Vaccine passports are just another gateway drug to redesigning society in your own busted and broken image. Complete with all the incompetence, waste, and fraud that comes with it.

Exit Question: How long before Pat Burke – having deliberately leaped into the spotlight – finds himself the object of sexual harassment claims? He is a NY Democrat.

Bodily Integrity Is an Inalienable Right, and Here Is the Proof…

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 22:00 +0000

Just as the word “privacy” is not explicitly mentioned in the constitution of the U.S.A, but it has long been held as a right implicit in the bill of rights; so too is the right of bodily integrity, a right implicit in the bill of rights!

But where?

The second amendment!

I hold that while bodily integrity is implied in other rights within the bill of rights (such as the first amendment), it is obviously implied in the second amendment.

The second amendment includes the right to self-defense, and self-defense is naturally based on the preservation of bodily integrity!

No, this does not mean one must ever keep or bear arms to preserve or exercise their right to bodily integrity. People must exercise their own conscience when it comes to self-defense and bearing arms. However, what it does mean is that the root and the impetus of lawful self-defense is the common sense understanding that one has bodily integrity.

At a most visceral and natural level, a core driver of the development of our civilization, based on law and order, is based on bodily integrity. The individual right and interest to live out and enjoy the life given to the individual by their creator without being forcefully separated from that enjoyment by the schemes, plots, tortured alliances, and malevolent absurdities conjured by their fellow man.

In short, bodily integrity is most certainly not surrendered upon receiving a litany of existential terrors, and uncertain forebodings; nor upon the twisting of our earth into a wrathful and vindictive deity, and nature itself into an uninhabitable caustic terrarium that can only be navigated by a technocratic “trans-human” death cult.

Regardless of whether you keep and bear arms, and regardless of what your conscience might dictate in self-defense; the fact is that you have the natural and inalienable right endowed by your creator to abide peacefully in bodily integrity. Nature is good, and the natural body is also good.

Conclusion: you have the right to say “no” to masks, testing, vaccines, and unethical human experimentation. The question remains, will you?

Will it help to motivate you if I say that by not defending the implicit right of bodily integrity the attacks on the second amendment will intensity? Believe it or not, they will.

Data Point – If So Many Are Vaxxed in NH, Why Does the Graph Look Like This?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 20:30 +0000

WHY is the operative word. Ed Mosca has a post “Everything They Told You (Are Still Telling You) About COVID is a LIE” and the above image is from Chris Sununu’s tweet. It got me to think – WHAT?

As in WHAT is the current status of EVERYTHING Wuflu here in NH.  So, I went to the NH WuFlu Dashboard where the summary is this:


(click to enlarge)

Look at the middle graph in which the green line shows that vaccination percentage SKYROCKETED here in NH.

“Two weeks to flatten the curve” is turning into years. “wear your mask” was the order from on high, while we “wait for the vaccine” so we can get back normal.” Then the idiocies of “wear your mask AFTER you get Vaxxed to protect the unVaxxed,” and “if you aren’t Vaxxed, wear your mask to protect the Vaxxed.”

And now the government is clueless as to how to message what they don’t understand (or is that the other way around?).

And those in Government (and other assorted COVID Karens) are all up in arms because hospitals are full?  Why aren’t they AND the Media leveling with the rest of us by telling us, loudly and clearly, that it is because of GOVERNMENT VACCINE MANDATES (e.g., Biden! With drop-dead dates that mandate healthcare worker firings along with PR seeking Hospital High Honchos) getting rid of their staffs that mean beds are going unused.

But that’s not the point.  The Data Point begs the question:

If the Green Line has been so high for so long, and if I know that Vaccines are supposed to be protecting us, but if I know that the WuFlu case increases are going exponential, then


I’m not looking for excuses, I’m not looking for explanations. I’m just looking at the GOVERNMENT SUPPLIED Data going:


Seriously – why risk the side effect?  Especially if, by looking at the TOTAL DEATHS BY AGE on the left side, if you are 49 or younger, you have little to NO risk of death?

And yes, I read Steve’s post as well and went “Ummm?”.   Yeah, the Grandson is not going to get the Jab until THAT situation is fixed / accounted for.

And I’m listening to Fascist Fauci, King of Healthcare Tyranny, on WMUR, yammering:

We have a very effect tool. We have too many people, 60 million people or so who are adults that are eligible for vaccination that are not vaccinated. We’ve GOT to get them vaccinated!

Yeah, graph time.

And note that WMUR is no longer telling us what the ages are of those succumbing either directly from COVID or as a co-morbidity to other causes. Yeah, covering NH like no one else…

…with a pillow.

Northeast Activists Still Working to Ensure We All Freeze to Death

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 19:00 +0000

For years, New England has had an energy deficit problem exacerbated by the Left’s None of the Above strategy toward new infrastructure. They block pipelines, power plants, even transmission lines that could deliver their crappy, dirty wind and solar.

The latest front on this war is in Peabody (pee-biddy), Massachusetts. The City is trying to build an 85 million dollar ‘Peaker’ plant. It would use oil or gas to provide power that would fill gaps when demand is high. Translation: when it’s friggin cold as hell, and everyone is trying to stay warm, it would keep the grid from collapsing.

A common problem in places that rely too heavily on wind or solar, which are lousy most times but even less reliable in winter. Wind and solar cannot deliver, but if you intend to pretend otherwise, they need backup. A “peaker plant,” run on natural gas, is ideal (because Nuclear – the best option all around – is verboten).

NG lowers the so-called devil gasses the windy-solar people promise us we need to reduce, but you need pipeline infrastructure to deliver it, and they are opposed. Blocking them has created a considerable problem in the Northeast, which we’ve covered at length.

Related: Without Fossil Fuels Millions of Americans Could Freeze to Death

They don’t want you burning wood (unless it’s in a biomass facility): no Nuclear, no NG, no oil, no coal, no nothing. To aid and abet the Boston Globe, a reliable mouthpiece of the approved narratives, opened their “reporting” with this.


PEABODY — It would cost $85 million to build, spew thousands of tons of carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants into the atmosphere for years to come, and perpetuate the reliance on fossil fuels in a dozen communities across Massachusetts, all while a new state law takes effect requiring drastic cuts of greenhouse gas emissions


Please tell us how you truly feel. And they do. The “reporter” rolls out every canard on the palm card, including the spreading “harmful particulate matter in surrounding vulnerable, lower-income communities, exacerbating asthma and other respiratory illnesses.”

You’d think they were burning tires in the street.

Modern power plants provide very little in the way of harmful particulate matter in the US. China, they’ve got an enormous problem, but this isn’t Beijing. It’s Peabody, MA. And it gets cold there in the winter.

Related: Hold on To Your Wallets – New England’s Governors Promising Regional Energy Improvements

If you want to worry, every policy you propose makes it harder for lower-income communities to make ends meet after you have priced them out of every necessary fuel for modern living. Expenses that eat into strained budgets needed for other things like housing, food, and clothing.

And, lest we forget, your energy future – as dirty and irresponsible as it may be – is impossible without peaker plants. But here you are undermining that same future.

And no one should be surprised by that.

Yep, because it’s killing off those schools via indoctrination instead of bolstering their academic rigor.  Hey, if you can do the latter, do the DIE bit, right?

But yeah, Jon Morgan decided that he was the Supreme Arbiter as to what is Right and what is Wrong with Brentwood. And let everyone know about it publicly.

And someone just very publicly told him what he now needs to do.  And where to put it, as well.

I’ll find it….after all, it was a GREAT way to influence people to vote for him.

Oh, the “Goober for Gubnor” bit? A couple of little birdies sang to me that he has delusions of running for NH Governor.  Sure thing – insult your home town while you’re thinking about is a BIG step forward to that goal.

I’ll find it, folks, just give me a bit of time…

The Gunstock Master Plan

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 16:00 +0000

The Gunstock Area Commission (GAC) is a public body and is required to operate in compliance with RSA 91-A. If they were following the law there would be minutes and notices coming from the Master Planning Committee outlining the work of the committee.

They can not produce any such record.


(GAC Minutes February 24, 2021)

A further troubling issue is that they admit that there has been no vote on that which is included in their Master Plan. Above we can see that they did vote to ‘bake into’ the following year’s budget $100,000 toward producing the Master Plan. One might think that such a contract might have some sort of guidance toward the goals of the Master Plan. One is left to speculation.


We want to thank NH State Rep Mike Sylvia, Chair of the Belknap County Delegation for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to


This sort of government operation in the shadows is sadly not uncommon. Our Right-To-Know laws are much too weak, and place the burden of oversight on the public. A citizen would have to file a suit in superior court in order to resolve the issue.

In this instance there is a more direct solution available. The county delegation is responsible for the appointment of GAC members. We also have the ability to remove commissioners ‘for cause.’

Violation of RSA 91-A sure seems to be a reasonable cause for removal of the chairman in charge of the commission.

Seems Like the Rebellion Is Telling the Empire to Stick It

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 14:30 +0000

To recap:  NH Governer Baby Huey had a hissy (“quacky”?) fit at a Republican NH House Caucus. How DARE YOU in ruining my chances for a fourth term as Gov!!

OK, he didn’t say that but he was quite incensed that there were some “Republicans” that were not hewing to his personal line of “Ixnay the AccineVay AndateMay” and how DARE you keep on the Voter Fraud stuff!”  After all, he’s both omniscient and omnipotent as in “Public Health trumps ALL” (including the Constitution).

A majority of NH GOP County Republican Committees, standing up for THEIR constituents, pushed out and almost unanimously passed two Resolutions on Vaccine Mandates and Having their NH State Executive Councilors investigate the arrests that happened at the last two meetings (see below).

So much for listening to Gov. Tone Deaf, eh?  And the NH GOP for issuing a “you recalcitrant children, fall into line!” which I posted here (“Where Gov. Chris Sununu Picks a Fight with His Republican Base“) with no small amount of fisking (e.g., the “This is not Republicanism. This is not conservative,” ruler on wrists treatments).

Sidenote: again, we haven’t learned, with proof, who wrote that “Team NH GOP” blaster fire as a shot across the Rebellion’s bow but from what the little birdies are telling me, there is one person whose name keeps getting repeated. Thus, it’s like playing TV’s  “Survivor” except put the modifier “Political” in front of it and someone is about to get blindsided). We’ll let you know when a chink in the Dark Side opens up a bit more.

Methinks that GraniteGrok is about to go back into the “persona non-grata” category again. C’est la, I guess.

Well, when you start to bully people, many will remain silent and then slink away – they bow on bended knees thinking either they don’t have the ability to resist – or the courage to do so. However, some will look at the bully with a squinty-eyed glare and then tell the people around them “Here, hold my beer.” And so, a return salvo was sent back at Emperor Palpatine NH Governor Chris Sununu and the wholly “in pocket” NH GOP.

I have taken the liberty of bolding what I think is interesting, important, or amusing:

Dear NHGOP State Committee Member:

This past Friday at 3:04 pm, 400+ Republican State Committee members were sent a scolding email from “Team NHGOP,” which took to task a majority of the County Republican Committees that dared to consider and pass two motions in support of the citizens of New Hampshire.  A majority of the County Republican Committees!  If you haven’t yet seen it, that email is attached below.

In sending this email and signing it “Team NHGOP,” the author presumes that he speaks for all New Hampshire Republicans.  There was no meeting of the NH GOP Exec. Board to specifically discuss this matter or vote on the contents of this response.  If anyone can claim the mantle of “Team NHGOP,” it is the majority of the County Republican Committees that have stepped forward to represent the citizens of New Hampshire by adopting these two motions.  We are perplexed and distressed as to why initiative on behalf of the people is being denigrated.

The first motion was a simple, respectful request that the Governor call a special session of the legislature to address the threat to our State and personal sovereignty and our personal livelihoods from the Federal vaccine mandates.  Six of New Hampshire’s ten County Republican Committees and two smaller committees have adopted this, most unanimously, with only 4 individual dissenting votes across the entire state. The subject matter is of immediate and overwhelming concern to the adopting counties.

The reason it is necessary to ask the Governor to call this special session is the narrowness of our majority in the House.  It would require a 2/3 vote for the Legislature to call this special session itself, an impossibility given its current makeup.  Additionally, time is an imperative. People are losing their jobs and their livelihoods.  Families are being thrown into crisis and uncertainty.  The House’s amendment to HB255 is a good start, but it cannot even begin to make its way through all the Legislature’s many wickets until January at the earliest.

Simply adding New Hampshire’s name to a lawsuit which will take months or years to play out, doesn’t do nearly enough to protect those under immediate threat of losing their jobs.  The “stay” imposed by the 5th District court offers some temporary protective measures, but shall we presume this will remain in effect, and trust that the final outcome will be sufficient to fully protect Granite Staters from the Biden Administration’s unconstitutional mandate?  This call for a special session could do so much more and clearly has majority support across our State.  It is both important and urgent.  Perhaps most significantly, it is an opportunity to show all voters that the Republican Party is acting on their behalf.

The second motion was born out of a conversation between Executive Councilor Joe Kenney and Dr. David Strang of Belknap County on Nov. 2nd.  They discussed the arrest of 9 citizens at the Oct. 13th G&C meeting.  Councilor Kenney was already on the record stating he saw no disruption, did not feel threatened and felt an investigation into these arrests was warranted.

In that Nov. 2nd call, Councilor Kenney stated that if his constituents came forward and requested an investigation, he would agree to publicly pursue one.  This motion has also been adopted by every county committee that has completed their vote, with only 5 dissenting votes across the entire State!  This too clearly has majority support of our County Republican Committee members.

It is utterly perplexing to us why, when we are doing the work of the citizens of our various counties, and responding to a request from an Executive Councilor, we, the majority of the County Republican Committees of New Hampshire, are being publicly rebuked for showing leadership.  We urge all county committees that have not addressed these two motions to do so and join us in speaking with a single, united voice for the citizens of New Hampshire.  Both motions are attached below for your consideration.


Norm Silber, Chair, Belknap County Republican Committee

Paul Terry, Vice-Chair, Belknap County Republican Committee

David Strang, Treasurer, Belknap County Republican Committee

Marc Abear, Member-at-large, Belknap County Republican Committee

Wendy Richardson, Chair, Carroll County Republican Committee

Eli D. Clemmer, Chair, Coos County Republican Committee

Spencer S. Fortier, Vice-Chair, Coos County Republican Committee

Jakob Unger, Treasurer, Coos County Republican Committee
Mark Evans, Secretary, Coos County Republican Committee

Jose Cambrils, Treasurer, Merrimack County Republican Committee

Note: The current chair, Scot Maltzi, was so incensed that he was on the south end of a 25-3 vote in favor of the Resolutions that he refused to sign. Looking to be in good stead with the GOPe, I guess.

Sandy Geisler, Secretary, Rockingham County Republican Committee

Seamus Casey, Chair, Strafford County Republican Committee

Rep. Aidan Ankarberg, Vice-Chair, Strafford County Republican Committee

Michael Aron, Chair, Sullivan County Republican Committee

Lori Korzen, Chair, Berlin Area Republican Committee

Stuart Light, Vice-Chair, Berlin Area Republican Committee

Eli D. Clemmer, Treasurer, Berlin Area Republican Committee

Mark Evans, Secretary, Berlin Area Republican Committee

John Garrison, Chair, Lancaster Area Republican Committee

Bruce Hicks, Vice-Chair, Lancaster Area Republican Committee

Ree Feller, Treasurer, Lancaster Area Republican Committee

Seth King, Secretary, Lancaster Area Republican Committee

Steve Steiner, Chair, Mt. Washington Valley Republican Committee

Carlton Cooper, Chair, Rochester Regional Republican Committee
Rep. Aidan Ankarberg, Vice Chair, Rochester Regional Republican Committee

Priscilla Terry, Co-Chair, Tri-County Republicans

David Strang, Treasurer, Tri-County Republicans


So, Emperor Palpatine (aka, NH Governor Chris Sununu), the turn is yours. It seems that more Committees have signed onto these Resolutions than when I first blogged about this. I am also being told that there may well be more coming as well. Are the X-wing fighters flights now taking flight with the bombers right behind them?  Is the Death Star warming up?

The political question at had is who is going to blink first at this game of Chicken?

My answer to the question, however, is yet another question. I think, is properly framed as:

Who needs whom MORE?

Do the Committees around the State, who are nominally under the thumb of Sununu/NH GOP, need Sununu to be successful?  Or does Sununu need THEM more with the upcoming Primary and General Election?  Who is more important to the Party – the volunteers at the bottom of the pyramid or the elected officers at the top?  Who is supposed to serve whom?

Another couple of questions: Does the NH GOP remember what they did to Joe Kenney’s run for Governor?  And will the Committees pull a second act (and maybe a two-fer for BOTH Kenney and Sununu)?  All that is required from the Committees is a bit of “lip service” and they can say that they “served the Party” just like the NH GOP said “they served nominee Kenney” back then.

And there is one very important thing about being a Leader:  If no one is behind you following you, are you truly leading?

I’m betting that this Is To Be Continued


Federal Vaccine Mandate Resolution:

Belknap County Republican Committee
The following motion was unanimously adopted by the General Members of the Belknap County Republican Committee, at their meeting on November 10, 2021, in Gilford, New Hampshire:

We, the members of the Belknap County Republican Committee, find Federal vaccine mandates to be a threat to and a violation of our State sovereignty, personal sovereignty and personal livelihoods as protected under Article 7 of the New Hampshire State Constitution. As Governor Sununu has publicly stated that he does not agree with these mandates, we request that he call a special legislative session to further address this threat and violation, as called for in Article 31 of the New Hampshire State Constitution.

Belknap County Republican Committee
November 10, 2021


Moved, that the Members of the Belknap County Republican Committee urge Executive Councilor Joe Kenney to call for an investigation, preferably by an independent third party named by the Executive Council, into unresolved troubling questions related to actions taken by the New Hampshire State Police at the October 13, 2021 meeting of the Executive Council. We desire that the investigation shall query as to why certain members of the public attending the meeting were arrested; who determined why and on what basis(es) these persons were arrested; whether or not charges have yet been filed against persons arrested; what the charges are, if so filed; and, the involvement at any point prior to, during or after the meeting by the Governor; that the investigatory report shall be presented to the Executive Council within thirty (30) days; and, that unless otherwise prohibited by law, make a full report to the people of New Hampshire that includes the full written report of the investigating person(s).

MOTION upon passage of the previous motion (above)

The County Chairman is directed to transmit this motion to Executive Councilor Joe Kenney, as soon as is practicably possible.

Study: K-12 Schools With Diversity Programs Have a Wider Achievement Gap Than Those Without

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 13:00 +0000

The #woke used-car salesman promoting Diversity and Equity programs in public schools insists we need them to create academic parity. But like everything else the Left sells, Diversity programs do precisely the opposite.

To be clear, my thought on this is similar to every other new thing the education-industrial complex has rolled out and over students. The purpose is not to improve outcomes for minorities but to kneecap the potential for achievement. As in any Marxist-Leninist system, the goal is not to lift people up but to put them down.

The goal is the lowest common denominator, but DEIJ programs led (typically) by some overpaid chief diversity officer (CDO) are not just doing that, they are widening the achievement gap.

People of color are losing ground in schools with programs the Left insists will do the opposite.


A simple comparison of achievement gaps in districts with and without CDOs shows that gaps are larger in districts that employ CDOs. In districts without a CDO, the average black student is 1.9 grade levels behind the average white student on standardized test results. In districts with CDOs, the achievement gap is half a grade level larger, with the average black student being 2.4 grade levels behind the average white student.




Given the way the Left works, it seems likely that this is deliberate.

Democrats oppressed black Americans for centuries. They then took over public education and urban areas and destroyed inner-city schools – consigning generation after generation in a welfare-dependency trap.

And now this.

DEIJ looks like the export program that brings a piece of this “progressive success story” out to the suburbs where they can make everyone angry about a problem they created and then “solved” by making matters worse.

And the solution to that will be more of them doing more of this while blaming someone else (today, it’s white people) for the outcomes.

The Women’s March Triggers Itself And Then Has To Apologize.

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 11:30 +0000

In Fourteen Hundred and Ninety-Two, Columbus Sailed the Ocean Blue. Christopher Columbus sailed into infamy and ‘found’ the New World. 14.92 was also the average donation to the Women’s March, which they announced in an email to supporters.

The progmatists were super-naturally outraged. How dare they announce that the sum collected divided by the number of donors was equal to $14.92.

The emails in response would make for hours of amusement (if we could read them), but at some point, outrage reached a level where even The Women’s March had to say something about it.



They erect their own “statue” and then have to tip it over.

Twitter was, shall we say, amused.

“Let’s all chip in and raise the amount to $17.76. Then they’ll really lose their minds.”

They’d have to have a mind, even just half of one, to lose it.


*Progmatists was spelled that way deliberately.

Can someone tell me… why?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 02:30 +0000

“Truth dies in darkness.”

So do starving people.

Living in one of the most prosperous countries in the history of the world, I am dumbstruck by the number of liberals, progressives, and communists who would push Americans into Venezuelan-style inflation, starvation, and socialism.

For the life of me, I can’t understand why.

Yes, I know they’re doing it on purpose. But I can’t come up with a reason.

I was in the Navy for 10 years.  I visited countries along the Mediterranean, along the east coast of Africa, along the Persian Gulf, the Indian Ocean, and countries in the Far East.

I saw – with my own eyes – the desperation of the poor in Ethiopia and Kenya.

I saw – with my own eyes – the overcrowded cities of Bombay (now Mumbai) and Karachi.

I saw – with my own eyes – the jungles of Thailand and Malaysia.

I saw this.  And I kept saying to myself, “Thank G-D this isn’t America.”

Now I look around and see Democrats trying to destroy America.  I see them doing their best to tear the fabric of this country apart, all the time calling for “peace and harmony”.

Yes, I know they’re trying to eliminate punishments for legitimate crimes against both people and the property owned by people.

Yes, I see them complaining (legitimately, in some cases) about the injustices inflicted upon Americans by the same politicians that they voted into office – and then complaining about the lack of justice in the system.

Yes, I watch them complain about the lack of law enforcement and “unsafe streets,” and then I watch them eliminate or suspend the laws that might prevent crime and punish criminals.

For the life of me, I can’t understand why.

Yes, I know they’re doing it on purpose. But I can’t come up with a reason.

“If your friends jumped off a bridge, would you jump off a bridge too?”

If you say “no”, there must be a reason you say no.

“They’re looting Nordstrom’s in San Francisco, and Walgreen’s is shutting down pharmacies all over the city.”

Why?  What did Nordstrom ever do to them?  What did Walgreens ever do to them?

For the life of me, I can’t understand why.

Similarities Between Horse Sterilization Drug And COVID mRNA Vaccines

Granite Grok - Fri, 2021-11-26 01:00 +0000

Did you know that Pfizers CEO is “is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and holds a Ph.D. in the Biotechnology of Reproduction from the Veterinary School of Aristotle University in Greece?” So what. This is what.


“The PZP vaccine is usually given, initially, in a series of 2 vaccinations 2-6 weeks apart and then a booster every 8 months to a year, depending on the species. The PZP is emulsified with an adjuvant to stimulate the animal’s immune system.” It is extracted from the ovaries of pigs which is used as a source of antigens for immunocontraception.


PZP is used to sterilize wild horses and, well, any mammal, actually. Given as two shots, a few weeks apart, and requires boosters.

The COVID mRNA vaccines are given as two separate shots a few weeks apart and, coincidentally, require boosters.

PZP is a chemical contraceptive that makes fertilization impossible. mRNA vaccines have produced a significant increase in still-born babies and infant deaths in the first 2-6 months among vaccinated women.


The jab has also been correlated with thousands of reports of menstrual irregularities. Gynecologist Christiane Northrup warned in April this year that the Covid vaccine could cause infertility in women, because the protein Syncytin-1 present in the placenta was very similar to the Covid virus SARS-CoV-2’s spike protein.




Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet stated during the second Stop the Shot online conference streamed on August 19 by LifeSiteNews that peer-reviewed scientific research from 2012 and 2018 as well as evidence from whistle-blowers showed that the jabs damaged fertility and pregnancy. It was not being reported to the public.

The vaccine nanoparticles “can pass through the blood-testis barrier, placental barrier, and epithelial barrier, which protect reproductive tissues,” she said.

Human immune cells are thus “trained to attack” a protein vital to a successful pregnancy, as in the case of PZP. Vliet warned that this would lead to “miscarriages, birth defects, and infertility” when taking the jab.




Dr. Michael Yeadon, a former vice president at Pfizer, has corroborated the claims, saying that the jabs pose a “severe risk” of infertility. Yeadon cited scientific research specifically on lipid nanoparticles, found in the shots. “Do not take these vaccines,” he warned. “There’s a severe risk to your ability to conceive and carry a baby to term.”


And, nothing can treat COVID except The Jab, masks and distancing work, and this is just something else that’s not happening.

Everything They Told You (Are Still Telling You) About COVID is a LIE

Granite Grok - Thu, 2021-11-25 23:30 +0000

Fifteen days of lockdown will stop the spread … 30 days will stop the spread … masks protect you from COVID … the “vaccines” are 95% effective at preventing COVID infections … etc., etc. etc. The reality in New Hampshire:


(source NY Times (today)). In case you have forgotten, a “mask mandate” was proclaimed by Sun-King Sununu approximately one year ago … following which cases skyrocketed.

Everything they … the Democrats, Conservative-Inc. … told us was a LIE. And yet the bitter-clingers will have no problem believing the latest lie … that “boosters” are the magic carpet that will return us to normal:



And when COVID dissipates in the spring … not because of lockdowns, masks, “vaccines”, mandates, “passports”, “boosters”, etc., BUT BECAUSE COVID IS A VIRUS AND VIRUSES ARE SEASONAL … the liars will declare SUCCESS and the bitter-clingers will believe them.
