The Filing Period for Filing for NH Political Office Is Over – Here’s the Final Cumulative List:

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-06-12 01:30 +0000

Unless one is planning on mounting a “write in” campaign (which can work but only in a fairly limited set of circumstances), this PDF outlines who is running for elected office here in NH.

From the NH Secretary of State David Scanlon’s office:

NH Republican-cumulative Candidates-6.10.22

 

Yes, I am running for NH GOP Delegate once again. I humbly ask for your vote!

And for completeness, here’s the Democrat list. Note that the number of primaries is MUCH shorter than on the Republican side – it’s like King Ray Buckley must have his ring kissed in order to be allowed onto the ballot.  A few exceptions, to be truthful, but a lot less. 27 pages on the Democrat side is a lot less than the 57 on the Republican side.

West Point Military Academy Is in a State of Radical Change against Its Original Mission, Purpose, and Principles

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-06-12 00:00 +0000

Graduating Cadets from West Point have published an open letter titled, “West Point Graduates Issue ‘Declaration Of Betrayal’ For Academy Leadership.” Someone has woke-ified and identity-politicized the Military Academy, and they are blowing the whistle.

You can (and should) read it yourself, but here are a few excerpts to give you an idea of what to expect.

 

Civilian faculty members have introduced political indoctrination into academic instruction to include socialist ideology that runs counter to the noble principles of the Constitution.

Instruction in Critical Race Theory (CRT) at the Academy. Such instruction severs the ties of every cadet to defense of the Constitution, thereby nullifying the oath cadets have sworn to uphold. Critical Race theory now replaces Duty, Honor, Country.

The Biden Administration seeks to divorce military service from defense of the Constitution by replacing allegiance to the Constitution with Critical Race Theory.

It is not the purpose of the military to help advance the anti-American, anti-Constitution agenda of leftist ideologues. But the military is being forced by WOKE leaders in the White House, Congress, Department of Defense, and Pentagon, to do just that: advance a leftist agenda that seeks to tear down the Constitution, not protect it.

The purveyors of Critical Race Theory intend to demolish the United States of America as the founders established our Republic.

 

It’s not all sad news.

 

It is for times like these that God made Patriots.

 

These graduates are making the case that the history and foundation of West Point are both necessary and worth defending but hanging by a thread.

You can read it all here.

GrokPoll Results – Who do you think could or should be the next NH Governor?

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 22:30 +0000

In case you didn’t go back and check the poll results..

Well, I think that GraniteGrok and our readers are probably in that mix of “ultra-anti-government right” that Sununu mentioned when he signed up to run, again, for NH Governor. I dryly note that when such people say such things, they (Sununu) NEVER state the WHY they describe others such?  Neither he nor the Left, ever consider WHY some folks might be in that group – like those in Government that keep screwing up in making mistakes as they won’t stay within their Constitutional boundaries and authorizing legislation?  That they’ve morphed from doing X to doing Y, Z, Alpha, Beta – and hardly spending time on X anymore?  For example, the CDC, which is supposed to be all about tracking diseases morphing into an agency that assumed it had the Power to issue a nationwide moratorium for home/rental evictions? Note: it doesn’t – SCOTUS slapped them down…twice.

Or those that believe in the founding idea of having limited Governments and complain when they expand? Anyways…The Poll.  With the poll ending this past Wednesday (yes, I know, I’m late!), the results are available here but I figured I’d summarize the most vote-getters here. I dryly note that amongst our readers, who are the most conservative bunch in NH, Sununu did as well as I thought he would:

Chris Sununu – 1.99% (Current incumbent, NH Governor)

Yes, this is an unscientific, self-selected poll done for the heck of it and with which I amused myself. That result is not unsurprising. The question will be – will he or his staff take note of it?

For the rest, a few of the from most to least:

  • Don Bolduc – 18.53% but is running for US Senate (and is leading in polls for the Republican Primary)
  • Frank Edelblut – 16.4% (currently the NH Dept. of Education Commissioner)
  • Thad Riley – 14.24% (and is a candidate for NH Governor)
  • Karen Testerman – 12.25% (and is a candidate for NH Governor)
  • Julian Acciard – – 6.85% (switched from running for Congress in CD-1 to Governor)
  • Bill O’Brien – 4.75% (former NH Speaker of the House).

Again, you could have voted for one, a few, or for all. So what’s the meaning of all this, at least to me?

  • If just the Conservative / Liberty & Freedom wing of the Republican Party voted, Sununu would be a goner.
  • Is Bolduc “transferable” for a different office as well as US Senate? Too late to switch but perhaps in the future?
  • Frank Edelblut has been toiling in the now-hot-button issues area of Education with a refusal to be “political” during his tenure.
  • Surprising me is Riley – I did not expect that percentage for someone that hasn’t had any State-wide exposure

Next set of polls will be more individual race oriented.  Again, unscientific and self-selecting but it will be fun to see where OUR readership is on the candidates.

Is Joy Behar Racist Or Just Not Very Bright? Or Both?

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 21:00 +0000

As remarkable as it may seem, this week marks Joy Behar’s first time atop our list of the week’s top knuckleheads. Though she’s made multiple appearances on our weekly tribute as an honorable mention, there had always been someone else whose knuckleheadedness had exceeded that of ‘The View’ co-host.

This week, however, we simply could not ignore Behar’s idiocy as she appeared to be hellbent on taking the KOTW top spot. Therefore, congratulations Joy! You’ve done it… how proud you must be.

Winner: Joy Behar achieves the not-so-rare idiot trifecta.

To spend more than ten minutes watching The View is to put one’s sanity and sense of reason to the test. The imbecility that spills from the mouths of Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, and Ana Navarro occurs with such regularity we can almost hear a Moron-o-Meter clicking and tallying off in the distance. But in the seemingly never-ending battle to see who the biggest nincompoop on the show is, Ms. Behar tends to edge out her competitors. Such was the case this week when she unleashed her inanity with three notable statements on successive days.

1) Behar wasted no getting the party started this week when on Monday morning, she offered this take on President Biden, Republicans, and inflation:

“And by the way, inflation is a worldwide problem, he’s [Biden] getting blamed for that. The gasoline is a worldwide problem, yes its $5, $6 here, it’s like $11, $12 in Europe. So, you cannot blame the president for every single thing.” 

Behar’s comment came on the heels of another claim moments earlier that it was Republicans, not Biden and the Democrats, who are responsible for the baby formula shortage. If ignorance is indeed bliss, Ms. Behar is undoubtedly the most blissful personality on television.

While gasoline prices certainly affect other countries with a similar impact, it has been President Biden’s allegiance to the climate cult and his subsequent anti-oil policies that have driven up oil prices around the world. So, it’s not just Americans who can thank Joe Biden for high gas prices, it’s the consumers across the globe.

But there is a multitude of factors that affect inflation in every country, not just gas prices. Biden’s insistence on blowing out government spending, depleting the workforce through vaccine mandates and outrageously lengthy unemployment benefits, and his implementation of crippling regulations on corporations have added fuel to the fire, with no end in sight.

2) On Tuesday, the following day, Behar dropped this idea regarding the clown show known as the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th US Capitol attack, which was aired on Thursday by the leftwing cable networks and the major broadcast networks, but not on Fox News:

“I think that Fox is implicated in the events of that day, isn’t it? I mean, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity and Brian Kilmeade [were] begging Mark Meadows to get the President, Trump, to stop the attack. So, now they’re saying the opposite? They’re implicated in the day, so of course they don’t want to report that.”

Or, Joy, it could be that Fox News actually cares about their ratings and isn’t interested in playing along with the media’s charade to try and save the Democrats’ chances in November’s elections. Also, do you even know what the word “implicated” means?

3) Three days, three brainless statements. On Wednesday, Behar had this to say regarding gun control:

“Here’s the thing: once black people get guns in this country, the gun laws will change. Trust me.”

Oh, we trust you, Joy, no doubt about it. We trust you to say bizarre, nonsensical things.

And keep in mind, that Behar made this statement to a black woman who had just explained that she herself is a gun owner.

The fact is, about a quarter of black folks in this country already own guns, with a slightly higher percentage for white folks and slightly lower for Hispanics. Does Behar think black people aren’t allowed to buy guns? Or does she think only people with certain melanin levels are interested in defending themselves?

Apparently, Behar was trying to imply that few black folks in America currently own guns – which isn’t true – and that those on the right who are white and own guns don’t want black folks to own them; and that is also untrue. Those of us who are responsible, law-abiding gun owners want more responsible, law-abiding gun owners. The more, the merrier, and we could care less about their skin color. But leftists like Joy Behar refuse to let their narratives on gun ownership and racial division be interrupted by reality. They will do and say whatever is necessary to promote their gun-seizing agenda and identity politics… reality be damned.

Honorable Mention #1: WaPo Reporter Felicia Sonmez throws a weeklong temper tantrum and gets fired as a result.

Of all the Washington Post’s militant feminist, far-left reporters, Felicia Sonmez is probably the most extreme; or should we say, was the most extreme. Remember, Sonmez was the reporter who got suspended by WaPo shortly after the tragic death of Kobe Bryant when she began bringing up old allegations of sexual assault by Bryant before his corpse was even cold. So, imagine how insubordinate Sonmez would have to be to get a pink slip. But that’s exactly what happened yesterday when the newspaper sent her packing.

So, what did Sonmez do to get herself fired? Last Friday, a fellow WaPo ‘journalist’ named David Weigel issued a tweet from his personal Twitter account with an unfunny and sexist joke. Weigel himself apologized and was suspended, but that wasn’t good enough for Sonmez, who apparently wanted Weigel fired along with anyone who dared show compassion toward him. She essentially wanted the leftwing Washington Post, her employer, to come groveling for forgiveness from Sonmez. Sonmez had multiple Twitter feuds with co-workers going on throughout the week, and when Sonmez continued to trash everyone, including the Washington Post itself, she was given the boot.

There’s something remarkably satisfying about watching a far-left outlet like WaPo battling with their own far-left employees. Whatever bad things happen to the Washington Post because of this episode, they deserve them. And the same can be said for Felicia Sonmez, who will almost certainly be taking her former company to court in a lawsuit. Too bad both parties can’t lose that case.

Honorable Mention #2: President Joe Biden appears on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and somehow manages to botch things.

Jimmy Kimmel, like every other late-night talk show host, is essentially a member of the Biden Administration’s communications team. They’re on the same side. To illustrate that point, Kimmel, throughout the president’s appearance this week, repeatedly used the collective “We” when discussing Democrats’ and Biden’s policy efforts. It’s an incestuous relationship. Yet despite the remarkably friendly confines of Kimmel’s studio and a downright chummy live audience, Biden still screwed the pooch.

How bad did things get? At one point, as Biden was evidently experiencing a brain freeze as he was ironically talking about poor communications, Kimmel had to step in to save the president from himself. “We have not been able to communicate in a way that is um, um…” said Biden, then drifted off, saying “Let me say it another way.” Biden continued to ramble, at which point Kimmel interjected with, “I’m going to have to take a break, and then we’ll talk a little bit more if you don’t mind.” To which Biden fittingly replied, “I don’t blame you.”

Yes, folks, there he is, our Commander-in-Chief. Heaven help us all.

Sununu files for a fourth term for NH Governor

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 19:30 +0000

“I never thought about doing a fourth term early on, but given where we are with the pandemic, given that we’re going to have some fiscal challenges ahead, we’re heading into a potential recession,” Sununu said. “We need good financial management. We’re doing great stuff on mental health. We’ve got to see those investments through.”

Ah yes, WMUR got a couple of pull quotes from Baby Huey as he signed up to run once again. Note the use of the word “investments”. Now, maybe it’s just me, as I’m not getting out much lately, but when’s the last time you heard a conservative Republican use that word in a glowing manner?  I hear a lot of Democrats, however, use such verbiage.  They know that they keep getting pasted for spending (the root source of our current Bidenflation – govt spending too much and passing out money like it was candy to a diabetic) and focus-group changed to investment like Government is some kind of business or sumtin’.

Problem is, a business DOES make investments which are supposed to yield profits. Then, part of that profit is supposed to go back to the owners of the company as dividends. Sununu has now grabbed onto the language of the Left in swapping terms as he KNOWS that we, the “owners” of Government, never get a financial dividend from government.  We only seem to get the bill (via higher taxes) instead.

This, too:

“You’re always going to have folks on the ultra-anti-government right who are upset, just like progressives will always have these ultra-socialists on the left that are going to be upset,” Sununu said. “There’s a spectrum. There’s always going to be a spectrum. So, my message is always to the 1.4 million people that I represent.”

I “liked” this part as well – a dust off to those that haven’t liked his performance over his COVID handling in instituting our “30 day free trial of Socialism” that lasted two years as he and his Administration decided to take full control of our economy. Now, I’m easily betting that he meant RebuildNH and we at GraniteGrok into that crowd as he keeps growing the size of NH government (either directly or via the “free money” from the Federal Government that ALWAYS results on more people on the State payroll.

But I’m also betting that was also an “inclusive” swipe against the Republican Leadership and the rank and file in the State Legislature that he both lied to (on emergency powers) and in making it known that he’d veto several bills if passed if his sycophants didn’t kill it first (like the Parental Rights bill, where his underlings like Laconia’s Travis O’Hara and Mike Bordes decided that Government (e.g., school boards and staff) should remain in control over Parents when it comes to children).

Lastly, I’ve been wondering if he’d be running again (hope against hope??)  but he waited until the very last moment, apparently.  WMUR’s Adam Sexton had this line, though:

Sununu kept his tradition of filing his candidacy in a low-key manner on the last day of the filing period, showing up alone in the secretary of state’s office to hand over his filing fee.

Alone except for Adam Sexton, it seems. I’m thinking that Sexton was not eternally camped out in NH Secretary of State Scanlon’s office all day waiting for Sununu to show up.  What’s the over/under that a “stray” call was placed to say “meet me at <insert time here> where the location was unneeded to be verbalized?

Does Something Wicked This Way Come?

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 18:00 +0000

It’s been almost exactly five weeks since my last screed decrying the sad state of this country. This has been a combination of intent, as I truly do understand how tedious this material can be, combined with being busier with other things as Summer gets into high gear.

I much prefer to write about the gardens, mountains and the other beautiful and interesting places I’m lucky enough to experience.

But I’ve much pent up, and again it spills over. This is my release valve; writing these words helps me personally order the chaos we now live with every day.

Last night I caught some of the primetime propaganda bestowed upon us by “The U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.” Never in my life did I imagine that this country would elect such a collection of ignorant, narcissistic, uneducated, and tone-deaf people into positions of government authority. But we have, and it was all on display last night, across all networks. “In Living Color”, as the saying once went.

We want to thank Ted Ropple for this Op-Ed.
Please direct yours to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

As far as I’m concerned, before entertaining any of the bullish!t narrative proffered, these questions need to be addressed by the august Committee:

  • If Donald Trump had the intent to promote insurrection at the Capitol, why did his administration offer up National Guard protection days before January 6th, an offer refused by Speaker Pelosi?
  • Why did Capitol Police remove the barriers and allow – encourage!- the protestors to enter the Capitol?
  • Why hasn’t Ray Epps been arrested for inciting the “insurrection”? There is more evidence of his involvement than of many others that have been arrested with little or no direct evidence.
  • The only person that died that day due to violence was unarmed Ashli Babbitt, shot by Capitol Police Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd. Why has there not been a public inquiry into this shooting?
  • When will the seditious and treasonous charges an insurrection usually warrants be levied against those responsible? Or, to put it another way, how much longer will Americans be denied their due process, and be detained in prison for misdemeanor charges? Or without being charged at all?

Painting an unconvincing, disjointed and unsupported picture, these Congresscritters truly must think the average American is an imbecile. It’s quite obvious that the Democrat figurehead in the White House and his handlers think they are. Sleepy Creepy Joe misses no chance to drop outright lies to the people, as evidenced any time he opens his mouth and speaks. Sometimes we even understand what he’s saying.

According to Biden, the economy is great, COVID is still a threat, inflation isn’t that bad and it’s all Putin’s fault. In reality, he was handed a solid, well-performing economy in January 2021 and immediately proceeded to break it all down. Gasoline prices have more than doubled, inflation is approaching double-digits, and we’re as close to a nuclear war as we’ve ever been. The Crona Plague has disappeared from the national and world stage. Monkeypox is the latest viral play.

Everything this Progressive-Left regime touches turns to shit, and many believe it’s intentional.

The safety valve for “Our Democracy” has always been its elections. We’re all holding on for November when even the corrupt legacy media expect the Democrats to lose the House and Senate. One hopes this will set the stage for a return to some semblance of governance normalcy if the ranking Republican members of the Beltway Uniparty play ball. Historically they don’t. Maybe they’ll be scared straight should the Trump Effect continue to dominate.

Or, is something worse in store for us all? Right now, I attribute the economic and social insanity to the last governance gasp of incompetent, feckless, and narcissistic progressives, desperate to hold onto power. But what if the deck is already stacked for November? We’ve all seen that the entrenched professional class in the DC Swamp are staunch supporters of the corrupt Left. DOJ, FBI, CIA……..all in. What if the tyrannical acts we are experiencing right now are nothing more than the opening moves of a regime that knows nothing changes after November 8th?

I’m hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. It’s going to be a long summer, and now I’m heading back out to the garden for a while.

These are my thoughts. I encourage you to express yours.

New Poll: Only Dems Still Like Biden (And Maybe Not the One’s Running for Elected Office)

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 16:30 +0000

The Bidenistas have been shedding White House staffers the way my Labrador sheds fur. Twice a year. January to June, and July to September. It’s almost as if someone inside the West Wing is saying, save yourself, and recent polling tells us why.

 

The survey, conducted June 3-6, found that 22% of Americans ages 18-34 approve of Biden’s performance — the lowest rating of any age group. Just 24% of Hispanic voters and 49% of black voters said they approve of Biden’s work.

In the new poll, 64% of respondents said they disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy and 34% said inflation is the most pressing national issue. Annual inflation was above 8% in March and April, which critics blame on Biden’s policies.

 

The only demographics that still produce positive numbers for Brandon would be Democrats and graduates with a four-year degree. 79% and 51%, respectively. And that’s a Quinnipiac poll, so grains of salt may need to be taken. And those numbers are only going to get worse.

The experts have admitted that inflation and gas prices are beyond their control. They have no plan, but that’s not true. The plan was to break things, and it’s been very successful. Biden and the Democrats broke the elections system and everything they’ve touched since. All according to plan. But they can’t admit that, so they are blaming other people and things which, as I’ve noted in the past, is worse.

 

 

Democrats pride themselves on their ability and that of the government to run things. Into the ground. But that’s not what it says on the sales brochure. From donor events to stump speeches to House parties, they insist they are smarter and better and making decisions in every sector of human life than any other human being they would rule.

If there was ever any doubt that’s been removed. The scales have fallen from the eyes of everyone but Democrats, many of whom are only happy with Biden because he’s not Trump. And even then, there is not a lot of hope for this change.

 

 

Young people are overwhelmingly Democrat voters, but only 22% approve of Slow-Joes performance. Seventy-six percent of Hispanics, a once-reliable pull for the Donkey Party, are unhappy with Biden’s work, while 51% percent of black Americans dislike what he is doing more than like.

Even College graduates, at only 51% approval, are equally happy within the margin of error.

It translates into a huge problem come November. That’s a lot of election to steal. Democrats running for office will suffer for the folly of Biden and his (mis) handlers.

 

But will it be enough to send a message? How bad do things have to get before people grasp what Democrat priorities truly mean for Americans? Is that even possible? The Political Left has been running most of our major cities into the ground for decades, and the victims of that “leadership” keep putting them back into office.

We need them out and in electoral exile for at least a decade to fix the fine mess they’ve gotten us into – is that even possible in Today’s America? And if it were, could we expect “republicans” to do anything meaningful to fix it?

Do You Know How Many Americans Have Been Tried and Convicted of Insurrection for J6?

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 15:00 +0000

Dear Congressional Leaders from New Hampshire, Do you know how many Americans have been tried and convicted of INSURRECTION for the January 6, 2021 protest? I do, ZERO. Why is that?

That’s because there was no “insurrection.” That narrative was made up by political hacks and force-fed to us by a complicit, dishonest, and corrupt media. This “story” was also helped along by the department of injustice and their federal bureau of insurrectionists, who helped “stage” the scene.

Do you know how many people were murdered that day?

I do ONE. Why are your peers lying about that?

We want to thank Michael Petruzziello for this Op-Ed.
Please direct yours to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

One unarmed female Veteran was executed by an incompetent capitol police officer that day. Nobody was killed by the crowd, that’s a flat-out lie, and everyone knows it.

In case you didn’t know, the victim was Ashli Babbitt. You and your peers don’t seem to care much about her murder. Why is that?

Do you know how many National Guardsmen defended the Capitol that day?

I do, ZERO. Why is that?

That’s because Nancy Pelosi refused them. She did, however, allow the capitol police, abetted by government agitators, to open the capitol doors and let the protestors in.

Do you know why only selective video footage from that day has been released?

I do because they’re hiding the truth. Transparency and light are a disinfectant for scum and must be avoided by them at all costs.

The corrupt committee “investigating January 6th” will not ask any of these questions during their sham presentation. Why is that?

Maybe because the answers would indict them. So instead of seeking the truth, they’ve chosen to “take the 5th”.

Maybe this committee should be looking for traitors instead of insurrectionists, I think they’d have more convictions that way.

Sincerely,

Michael Petruzziello

NH State Epidemiologist Benjamin Chan “Admits” That You Can Never Be Fully Vaccinated for COVID

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 13:30 +0000

As the COVID “vaccine” landscape collapses, the faithful are scrambling to salvage what they can from their political theater. They were never safe or effective. No approved version ever existed. Oh, and ‘Fully Vaccinated, let’s not use that term anymore. It’s so “antiquated.”

 

Wednesday’s call with educators was the last of the school year and also the last that state health officials plan to hold during the pandemic. Officials said the testing programs they have put in place will continue into the fall.

State epidemiologist Dr. Benjamin Chan said it’s important to rethink how [COVID] vaccinations are discussed.

“I think we all collectively need to stop using the term ‘fully vaccinated,'” Chan said. “That’s an antiquated term. It doesn’t mean much anymore. Let’s maybe agree together to not use that term. We’re using the term ‘up to date on vaccination.'”

 

I’m fully vaccinated against mumps, measles, smallpox, a long list of things for which I’ll never need another shot. But when it comes to COVID, I guess you can never be too vaccinated. Forty years later, and the technology has gotten worse? You can’t even come up with a vaccine that gets the job done the first time?

I’m not impressed.

And up to date? Do you mean like my dog’s rabies shots? Instead of passports, maybe DHHS can just issue tags we can wear on our collars?

Related: A “Vaccine” so Safe Pfizer had to Hire 600 Full-Time Employees to Take Calls About Adverse Reactions

Hey, is the State Department of Health up to date? Do you have comprehensive (see also, accurate) reporting and science about the COVID19 vaccines? The FDA and Pfizer have released tens of thousands of pages about the Emergency Use Only Authorized mRNA vaccines in recent months. Where on the DHHS website can I see those or get expert insight into what they say or what you think they mean?

I looked, and that would be nowhere.

If they exist in that web space, I could not find them or the latest CDC update on the Comirnaty fraud either. You’d think, in the interest of public health…no?

Related: COVID Questions That Gov. Chris Sununu and Dr. Benjamin Chan Need to Answer …

Let’s maybe spend a bit less time worrying about how educators talk about the jab with kids who don’t even need it (Dr. Chan was talking to educators when he made these comments) and put a little more focus on transparency. Honesty. Or were their gag orders from the Feds attached to all that taxpayer money they laundered to you as pandemic aid?

Public Health might be better served if we knew that as well.

Oh, and for the record, I’m not up to date on my COVID shots. Depending on what number you’re on, I’m probably at least four shots shy.

DEADLINE this Wednesday: Become an Election Inspector

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 12:00 +0000

New Hampshire state law provides for a position called “Inspector of the Election.” We need 963 people throughout the state who are willing to take on this role.  The deadline is this coming Wednesday, June 15th, so if you think you might be interested, please read further and act now.

Election Inspectors are election officials with far greater powers than a poll watcher.  They are functioning ballot clerks charged with distributing ballots to voters. They also can be present and verify the count of unused ballots at the start of the election day. The inspector likewise can be present and verify the count of cast ballots at the close of the election, among other duties.

The New Hampshire Democrat Party has appointed election inspectors for years. In 2022, the NH Republican Party plans to do so as well.  By law, appointment to this position is done by the state GOP.

All that is required to qualify to become an election inspector is to be a registered voter in the polling place (town or ward) where you intend to serve. Training and legal support will be provided.

This position requires a time commitment, but it’s important that we have like-minded people at our polling places to fight for election integrity. The time to act is now, as election inspectors must be appointed by July 15.

Please contact Joseph Gagnon at jgagnon@gop.com or 603-421-4183 to learn more about becoming an election inspector in New Hampshire.

 

Please Submit Group communications or Press Releases for consideration
to editor@granitegrok.com. Submission is not a guarantee of publication.

If Constitutional Amendments Are No Longer Absolute, We Can Stop Paying Taxes?

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 10:30 +0000

President* Joe Biden has announced that the amendments in the US Constitution are not absolute. Like any good civilian disarmament Democrat, he’d like the government to manage what sort of “weapons” we’ll be allowed to have or use. I want to suggest whatever he left in Afghanistan.

They got some nice stuff from Uncle Joe that would come in handy, second amendment-wise.

And for the record, Slo-Joe is not entirely wrong. There is a process for amending the constitution, and that includes un-amending it. Just ask the 18th. Pushed into existence by faction, it was “the law of the land” for thirteen years. But in 1933, it was repealed, mostly because states needed the tax money from selling liquor and maybe because the intervention encouraged some organized crime. Maybe. Oh, and people like to drink.

So, the 18th Amendment wasn’t absolute.

Neither then is any other amendment. There’s a process, and it’s not a phone, a pen, or a majority of black-robed lawyers, though we’ve seen all of that at work in our lifetimes.

But if amendments are not absolute, why not the 16th Amendment. Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

It’s not absolute. If Biden thinks he can take away your second amendment rights, then maybe you take away his 16th.

Who wouldn’t support not having to pay Federal taxes aside from otherwise tax-avoiding Democrats who need your money to fund their personal priorities?

While we’re at it, the 17th Amendment was a terrible idea, so thank God it’s not absolute. States should start recalling their US Senators. New Hampshire, for example, could dismiss both Democrats Hassan and Shaheen for failing to represent the Granite State and replace them with almost anything, and things would be better.

The problem is that any legislation directed toward that end in our state would likely get vetoed by Gov. Groomer. I know it says (R) after his name, but I’m beginning to think that’s a pirate sound, not his actual party affiliation.

He’s not beholden to the party platform nor the state or federal constitution. He’s even got his little doggy – AG Formella – secured under the porch. Give him a treat, and he’ll say whatever the Snoonoo wants about what is and is not legal.

It’s embarrassing.

Maybe if the legislature promised to appoint him to the US Senate, he’d go for it? I know he says he likes “running” the state, and the only thing US Senators run for is office (not if we repeal the ‘not absolute’ 17th). And a state-level appointment to the US Senate would get him out of NH not long after which they could recall him and replace him with someone less progressive.

Pipe dreams, I know, and just for fun. No legislature is going to push it even if “amendments are not absolute.” And no sitting US Senator will stand for any interference into their absolute control over the mountains of lobbyist cash that comes their way or the federal taxation they launder back to those the lobbyists represent.

But it might fix a few things if we could, not least of which is that some “amendments” exist to protect rights, not grant them. They are natural from birth and meant to be beyond the reach of douchebags like Joe Biden. The very people for whom they were enumerated in the first place.

Lengthy Trailer for New Documentary, “Free State”, Now Online

Free Keene - Sat, 2022-06-11 02:52 +0000

Those of us in the New Hampshire freedom migration have pointed out the many ways that we have more impact here than libertarians anywhere else. We’re constantly making news in mainstream media and the statists are ever on the attack against us. That’s because concentrating activism in one small geographic area works and more libertarian activists are starting to realize that the Free State Project is a success and more are joining – and moving to NH – in record-breaking numbers.

Another indicator of our unprecedented success is the number of documentary films that have focused on the libertarian activism movement here. We had Libertopia in 2010, which focused on multiple FSP migrants and their moving stories. In 2012, “Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree” focused on the amazing civil disobedience activism happening here. Then in 2014, “101 Reasons Liberty Lives in New Hampshire” laid out 101 persuasive reasons that libertarians should join the Free State Project.

Now, in 2022 it appears another FSP-focused documentary is on the horizon: “Free State“. They’ve released a lengthy trailer for the as-yet-unfinished film and are actively fundraising to complete the project. Here’s the full “sizzle” trailer:

FREE STATE – SIZZLE from Axiom Media on Vimeo.

You Have Released a Whirlwind

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 01:30 +0000

Here is the quote of exactly what Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said two years ago on the steps of the United States Supreme Court.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price,” Schumer, who was then minority leader, said at the time. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Democrats downplayed the outlandish verbal rhetoric, and Schumer later walked back his words, saying he regretted the outburst. Too little, too late, for a man was arrested in Chevy Chase, MD, in the neighborhood of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home on Wednesday morning. He was taken into custody in possession of a gun, knife, and various other weapons. He turned himself in after encountering federal Marshalls guarding the Kavanaugh home. He confessed to planning to kill Brett Kavanaugh and his family.

The only thing that stood between this deranged individual and the tragedy of possibly four innocent dead people was the armed guards surrounding this home. All Supreme Court justices have been so protected since the leak of the notes on the upcoming decision on the Roe Vs. Wade consideration.

The Justices have never been afforded Secret Service Protection. The Senate voted unanimously weeks ago on a bill that would provide the men and women of the Court round-the-clock protection. Nancy Pelosi has put the bill on hold and has not allowed it to come to a vote. Why? She is not forthcoming with an answer to why.

The Constitution explicitly forbids the protesting of Judges or Justices at any level. This law is to secure the impartiality of the judicial system. 18 U.S. Code § 1507 – Picketing or parading.

Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

This small detail, The Constitution, has not stopped the likes of Jenn Psaki from encouraging “peaceful” protests of the Justices homes from the White House podium. She also claims that the President denounces any violence but encourages the protesting. The President and his Press Secretary are knowingly encouraging the breaking of the law. Talk about unconscionable.

These Justices need protection and not just armed guards lining the perimeter of their homes. They need to know they are safe in their homes and, with their families, can come and go as they please. These people who are breaking the law and publishing the addresses of the Supreme Court Justices need to be arrested, charged and tried for their actions.

If not, those that are preventing the enforcement of the laws protecting these people are as complicit as if they carried the weapons themselves. Let’s see how quickly these bureaucrats can get something done.

How About a Little Chemical Castration, “Scarecrow”?

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-06-11 00:00 +0000

At the conclusion of the Wizard of Oz, the Wicked Witch meets her untimely end after asking Scarecrow if he’d like a little fire. Dorothy destroys her beautiful wickedness when a conveniently available bucket of water used to douse the burning Scarecrow melts the witch. Hail Dorothy! What does this have to do with chemical castration?

Unintended consequences, of course.

Dorothy didn’t mean to kill the witch. She just wanted to “help” her friend. She didn’t know water would melt a wicked witch. How could she, and who leaves a bucket of water anywhere near a meltable witch? Oz clearly needs background checks for buckets and waiting periods for water. Maybe even an outright ban.

In the Movie, Ms. Gale appears horrified by what she’s done in an I’m from Kansas “we don’t just kill people like that,” sort of a way, but it’s too late to do anything about it.

Related: Dr. Michael Laidlaw – Gender Transition Therapy is Giving Children a Disease

When it comes to parents convincing doctors to use puberty blockers on kids, even if with whatever passes in this scenario as good intentions, they are doing great harm.

One of those drugs is “leuprolide acetate, a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist.” 

 

Lupron is just one of several puberty-blocking drugs used by doctors. It’s better known for its use in the chemical castration of sex offenders at serious risk of reoffending.

 

Do they mention that in the glossy trifold marketing material? Hey, this is the same stuff we use on guys who can’t stop buggering children like little Johnnie here. Sorry, um…little Lola. It suppresses their desire to … live if the suicidal ideation numbers among children and teens transformed in their youth are any indication.

And over 90% of kids left alone are much less likely to attempt suicide and – gasp! – settle in happily into alignment with their biological sex.

Coincidence

Chemical and surgical transitioning pass for compassion – from the same folks who think there are too many people on the planet. The ideological descendants of the eugenicists. It makes this look like a ruling class encouraged chemical cull that castrates kids and, in many cases, kills them if they don’t kill themselves.

And it’s not healthy even if they aren’t killed or kill themselves.

 

When people are given far more of the opposite sex hormone than their bodies can handle, they are at “increased risk for cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular death, deep vein thrombosis. They’ve looked at adults taking these hormones and have seen already these cardiovascular risks.” When these drugs are administered to children, “one would presume it’s the same or even worse, in the long run.”

 

For nothing? Some believe there’s no evidence that the desired outcome of such treatments is even achievable, which means “scientists,” doctors, and now educators are experimenting on kids based on mental health issues whose end result is more severe health issues.

 

Commonly reported side effects of leuprolide include: arthropathy, asthenia, decreased testicular size, dermatological reaction, edema, gastrointestinal disease, headache, hot flash, increased lactate dehydrogenase, pain, signs and symptoms of injection site, urination disorder, and diaphoresis. Other side effects include: respiratory system disorder, abnormal hepatic function tests, dehydration, dizziness, dyspnea, impotence, increased serum alkaline phosphatase, increased serum aspartate aminotransferase, insomnia, myalgia, nausea and vomiting, neuromuscular disease, paresthesia, prolonged partial thromboplastin time, sleep disorder, and vertigo.

In other words, if you truly care about the child’s physical and mental health, you’ll leave them the hell alone and (if necessary) provide a bit of therapy to help them navigate whatever they are going through, but not in New Hampshire. Thanks to so-called Republican Gov. Sununu, it is against the law in the Granite State for anyone in the state to counsel children to consider their biological gender in such cases.

They can get therapy, but it must be neutral or encourage transition even if the “patient” wants to remain their biological self. So, they have no choice, thanks to the political left and their Republican allies.

An outcome forced on them before they can legally refuse unless we can set a fire under the issue and build some consensus that puts an end to experimenting on children. A very tall order given decades of ADD and ADHD chemistry experiments and the more recent COVID19 injection debacle.

But it’s still a battle we need to wage and one we need to win.

Dependent On Russia

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-06-10 21:00 +0000

Hungary can’t ban Russian gas and oil because 85% of its natural gas and over 56% of its oil comes from Russia, making it the most dependent of the Euro nations on that source. All of Europe is at some level dependent on Russia, and there is no way around it. Unless of course, Biden unlocks American oil and gas production.

But the left is so intent on destroying fossil fuels here and replacing them with “clean renewable electric” (which likely is impossible, or will take 50-60 years and bankrupt the nation) that they let the Russian dictator, whose latest pronouncements to young Russian entrepreneurs hints at further aggressions targeting the Baltic countries, continue funding his war of conquest.

If Biden can be made to get off the back of American fossil fuel production after the November elections here it would still take months to get up to speed but with our reserves, we have the ability to replace Russia as the primary supplier to Europe.

Good for Europe, good for America, bad for Putin, plus it would send a message to China, who has been casting hungry eyes at Twain for years now.

For that to happen, the Republican Party would need to, for once, act in unison, replace at least half the RINOs and get at least close to a veto-proof majority. That could take some serious arm twisting, if not braking.

Honestly, I’m not so very opposed to taking that kind of hard line with the RINOs but don’t suppose it’s really practical. Still, everyone that is actually concerned with this nation’s future needs to become active and donate to true conservative candidates. And then actually get out and work to get true conservatives elected.

All our futures and our children’s depend on it because the left doesn’t care one iota about you, me, or the American people or nation.

Why not our schools?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-06-10 19:30 +0000

I’m tired of millions of law-abiding citizens with no relationship to school shooters or responsibility for protecting schools being blamed rather than the shooters themselves and those people with the authority, ability, and responsibility to stop these criminals.

Almost all school shooters have long records of mental illness, violence, and threats that are known to parents, public officials, school officials, mental health professionals, and law enforcement. Why don’t they do their jobs to protect society?

If our thousands of laws don’t provide the authority to keep known dangerous people from legally getting guns, why haven’t politicians provided it?

It seems politicians won’t do anything to protect children unless the solution advances their political objective of disarming law-abiding Americans.

After decades of horrible examples, every parent, teacher, health professional, and public official should recognize their responsibility and authority to help troubled children and protect others from them.

Politicians’ workplaces are protected. Why not our schools? Why haven’t the lessons from previous school shootings (e.g., Sandy Hook: https://tinyurl.com/mryasf6h, Parkland: https://tinyurl.com/jwvyrhjm) been implemented everywhere? Don’t officials care? Why isn’t the excess Covid money spent on protecting schools?

As President Obama indicated (https://tinyurl.com/2s3fys52), fatherlessness causes many of our children’s problems. Our laws must stop encouraging fatherless families and encourage fathers to be positive role models for their children.

Taking guns from millions of law-abiding citizens won’t stop school shootings or other crimes, especially when violent criminals aren’t prosecuted, given light sentences, or released early to resume preying on innocent people.

The solution to school shootings is to deal seriously with troubled and/or violent people, keep fathers with their children, and protect our schools.

To the Governor: New Hampshire Bill to End State Enforcement of Federal Gun Control With Big Loophole

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-06-10 18:00 +0000

Last week, the New Hampshire House gave final approval to a bill that would ban state and local enforcement of federal gun control, but with a loophole that significantly narrows its scope.

A coalition of Republicans introduced House Bill 1178 (HB1178) on Jan. 5. As introduced, the legislation would have banned the state and its political subdivisions, or any person acting under the color of state, county, or municipal law from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer, or cooperate with any law, act, rule, order, or regulation of the United States Government or Executive Order of the President of the United States that is inconsistent with any New Hampshire law regarding the regulation of firearms, ammunition, magazines or the ammunition feeding devices, firearm components, firearms supplies, or knives.

The proposed law further stipulates that “silence in the New Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated pertaining to a matter regulated by federal law shall be construed as an inconsistency for the purposes of this chapter.”

The original language would have created a strong prohibition against state or local enforcement of federal gun control. But an amendment created a loophole that will significantly narrow the practical effect of the law even if enacted.

“In light of the long-standing practice of cooperation between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, nothing in this chapter shall prevent a state, county, or local official from cooperating with or rendering aid or assistance to federal officials in any circumstance where there is reasonable suspicion to believe that a person who is the subject of an investigation for violation of federal firearms law covered by [this law] also has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a violation of New Hampshire law or a violation of a federal law, regulation, order, or practice not covered by [this law.]”

As amended, HB1178 would then only ban state and local enforcement of federal gun control, when the enforcement actions are done for federal gun control alone. But in practice, that almost never happens.

State and local enforcement support is almost always part of some other operation in conjunction with the feds — usually prosecution of the unconstitutional war on drugs. The amendment will allow this to continue unabated. In effect, the amendment says if local police are working with the fed to enforce anything else along with federal gun control, they can do it as they have been all along.

Passage of HB1178 as amended could stop a narrow range of state and local enforcement of federal gun control, representing a small first step for the state. But with the amendment, it would mostly maintain the status quo.

The Senate passed HB1178 by a 13-10 vote. The House approved the final version 163-143. The bill now goes to Gov. Chris Sununu for his consideration.

EFFECTIVE

Absent loopholes, a ban on state and local federal gun control is an effective way to stop it in its tracks.

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

Based on James Madison’s advice for states and individuals in Federalist #46, a “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” represents an extremely effective method to bring down federal gun control measures because most enforcement actions rely on help, support and leadership from state and local governments.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano agreed. In a televised discussion on the issue, he noted that a single state taking this step would make federal gun laws “nearly impossible” to enforce.

“Partnerships don’t work too well when half the team quits,” said Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center. “By withdrawing all resources and participation in federal gun control, states and even local governments can help bring these unconstitutional acts to their much-needed end.”

LEGAL BASIS

The state of New Hampshire can legally bar state agents from enforcing federal gun control. Refusal to cooperate with federal enforcement rests on a well-established legal principle known as the anti-commandeering doctrine.

Simply put, the federal government cannot force states to help implement or enforce any federal act or program. The anti-commandeering doctrine is based primarily on five Supreme Court cases dating back to 1842. Printz v. U.S. (1997) serves as the cornerstone. For the majority, Justice Scalia wrote, in part:

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

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

WHAT’S NEXT

Gov. Sununu will have five days from the date HB1178 is transmitted to his office (excluding Sundays) to sign or veto the bill. If he takes no action, it will become law without his signature.

 

Michael Maharrey is the Communications Director for the Tenth Amendment Center.

NH AG (More or Less) Admits the Arrest of the NH 9 Last October Was Probably Unlawful – The State Has No Case

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-06-10 16:30 +0000

New Hampshire Attorney General john Formella has cried uncle on the matter of charging nine “protesters” accused of disrupting an Executive Council Meeting Last October. The NH Nine did no such thing, and the State has decided that it would lose if it perused any charges.

 

Formella said the seven-month investigation showed that while there was “probable cause” some of the protesters at the Sept. 29 meeting may have violated state law by obstructing the proceedings, state prosecutors likely wouldn’t have been able to provide any criminal wrongdoing.

“Those individuals would have certain constitutional and statutory defenses available to them at trial and based on these defenses, and other evidentiary issues, the state would be unable to sustain its burden of proving these individuals guilty beyond a reasonable doubt,” Formella said in a statement.

 

Some protesters “would have certain constitutional and statutory defenses available to them at trial.” ” [A]nd based on these defenses, and other evidentiary issues…”

Nice dodge. So, you’ve got no damn case. It was all a waste of time and resources.

And based on the extensive video evidence available from third-party observers – like this, for example – it is clear that there was no “protest” and that the accused were wrongfully arrested and detained.

I should add, at the behest of a whiny petulant governor who just wanted more federal money and was pissed that anyone would dare to object.

If you watch the video, no one obstructed the proceedings, which would become obvious in a trial.

I’m happy for the NH nine, but I am wondering if there is a legal path to punish the antics. Sununu was working an intimidation angle. He wanted to send a message and used the NH State Police to send it. But this is New Hampshire, where an above-average number of people know the law, sometimes better than the people in elected office, and these arrests were a joke from day one.

Not that corruptocrats running the Granite State wouldn’t do it or try to make it sick. That’s expected, but for AG Formella to admit they don’t even have enough for that is a thing.

We Were Right Again – “FDA Approved” Comirnaty Was a Hoax (Will Corporate Media Correct the Record?)

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-06-10 15:00 +0000

In August of 2021, COVID vaccine uptake was off, and they needed something to convince people to get The Jab. The Kool-Aid only works if everyone drinks it, so Pfizer and the FDA crafted on paper a legally distinct COVID “vaccine,” named it Comirnaty, and declared it approved.

And it worked. Every Karen and their water carrier proclaimed from atop the rising mountain of bodies and harms that “The COVID vaccine” was approved. It was safe and effective. No excuses. Go get yours today!

But the shot you got, the only injection anyone could or would get, was still under Emergency Use Authorization. That never changed. Comirnaty was a bait and switch, and we were suspicious right out of the gate.

 

08/21 – Pfizer’s FDA Approved “Vaccine” is Not the One You Got, or Will Likely Get Anytime Soon
10/21 –Pfizer Admits You Still Still Can’t Get Their “FDA Approved Vaccine” in the United States
01/22 –Start the New Year Right – Stop Lying to People about Their COVID19 Vaccine Being Approved.

 

The corporate media, politicians, and the so-called medical experts all aped the lie. Mandates rolled out. People lost their jobs, careers, and friendships, it was quite the public “health” relations coup. All while the VAERS numbers rose and the vaccinated continued to get sick – to which they responded, well, that’s the fault of the unvaccinated (it was not), and you need a booster!

This cabal even went on a terror campaign against “deniers” and used the “approved” lie to justify jabbing younger and younger children who were never at risk.

A lot of people died. Young people died. They knew it was never safe or effective. And this week, the CDC quietly issued a Pfizer update that Comirnaty will never be produced. The approved version of the “vaccine” only existed on paper, and it was time to dot the ‘i’ cross the ‘t.’

 

“Pfizer received initial FDA BLA license on 8/23/2021 for its COVID-19 vaccine for use in individuals 16 and older (COMIRNATY). At that time, the FDA published a BLA package insert that included the approved new COVID-19 vaccine tradename COMIRNATY and listed 2 new NDCs (0069-1000-03, 0069-1000-02) and images of labels with the new tradename. These NDCs will not be manufacturedOnly NDCs for the subsequently BLA approved tris-sucrose formulation will be produced.”

 

For the record, BLA approval refers to the Biologics License Application necessary “to market and commercialize a pharmaceutical or biological product in a country or jurisdiction.”  It was a false flag that gave Pfizer and everyone else permission to lie to you about what they were “selling” and what you were getting.

So, the 12 billion dose question now is this. The corporate media had zero curiosity about the lack of availability of the “approved” version. They gleefully sold the lie that they were the same – inferring that the EUA version that gave Pfizer immunity was the same.

You’ll not likely see anything bordering on journalism about any of that, just the approved narratives and CDC or FDA-approved talking points.

Now that Pfizer and the FDA/CDC have quietly covered their asses over this stunt, will the ”Media” have the stones to explode this across the front page? Any page?

A search at NH ABC affiliate WMUR for the word Comirnaty produced zero results. Yuu can’t even find old reporting on the so-called approval. It’s been scrubbed.

The liars at the NH Union Leader, however, haven’t scrubbed theirs yet.

So, I doubt you’ll find any admission of the lie in the watchdog media, but if you do, send it my way. I’d love to see the spin or – maybe I’ll be surprised, and someone will commit an act of journalism.

No, I’m not holding my breath.

 

One more point: Let’s not forget that New Hampshire spent over 100 million dollars on marketing to encourage vaccination based on the “FDA Approved” lie.
