From the Mouth of a Marxist – Property is Racist! ‘cuz Slavery!

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-06-02 13:30 +0000

Let’s say you believe that everything belongs to the State. Nothing you do with yourself nor the product of any labor can ever belong to the person who did the work. Not just that you didn’t build it, but you couldn’t. Now consider how the political party pushing those ideas had made it impossible for people of color to own anything.

The ideological descendants of slavery in America have recreated the plantation culture. Urban landscapes are riddled with crime-filled ghettoes with people trapped in a cycle of dependency. People of color.

It’s not a coincidence. With decades of Democrat rule, it is inevitable. Poverty, subsistence welfare living, homelessness. Their system has denied you an opportunity, so in response, these socialists who don’t want you to own property play the blame game. They blame people who have stuff, white people, the system, racism, and anyone but themselves.

The latest narrative move comes from a professor of Sociology and African American studies. Saida Grundy says that property is racist because blacks historically have been property.

 

“If we’re going to talk about George Floyd and really understand it, then we need to understand community reactions to it,” Grundy said. “And we often hear politicians, we hear civic leaders from inside Black communities and from outside of them as well… we hear President Biden say, ‘Y’know I understand your frustration, but don’t destroy property.’

“Well, when you say that to Black people, who historically have been property, one of our greatest weapons was the looting of ourselves as property from the system of slavery. And what we see in communities is they are reacting to the very racism of what we call property.”

 

Historically, you’ve left a lot of the discussion.

Blacks have also historically, and for a lot longer than American Slavery, owned other blacks. Kept them as property. Slavery is millennia older than America and not limited to people of color. Every race and nation has enslaved people, but in the overarching scope of human history, people of color have enslaved more people of color for longer than anyone else.

Africa still has black slavery. Muslims enslaved millions of blacks, Mediterraneans, Indians, and Asians. Human trafficking continues in Africa, the Middle East, and South and Central America.

Blacks have a long history of enslaving their own, so I have a question for the professor. If black people have, do, and still treat other blacks as property, it’s not about property or racism. It’s just evil.

And if the property is racist, and objecting to destroying it is racist, even when it’s the property of black Americans, is that why aborting millions of black babies is supposedly a right?

So, They Hate Me, They Really Hate Me!

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-06-02 12:00 +0000

I’m sharing a “hate mail” letter I received back a few months ago (12/15/21) along with a beautiful glossy print photo of the Jan 6th demonstration, Here is what the writer wrote:

Steve, the attached picture is tearing down and tearing apart our country, and the one who cannot see it is you!

Keep in mind Steve, if Trump were ever reelected, all of the blacks in America will be killed and all of the people in our beloved country from Mexico will likewise be killed and our democracy will be gone forever.

Donald Trump is the absolutely worst thing that ever happened to the United States of America. Before Trump, we had a very nice country. This man is a criminal! I hope we can get him and all his cronies in jail – right where they belong.

If Donald Trump had placed the entire country in masks (March 2020) then I do not believe our federal government would have had to spend anywhere near what we have spent – so don’t talk about socialism – Trump is the most irresponsible person on the earthy – he cares about Trump and Trump only.  We are now seeing where Trump sat in the White House, for over 3 hours and allowed buildings to be destroyed. Trump thinks this is – funny Steve, Trump is an irresponsible idiot.

(Unsigned of course)

Well, this (informed?) writer has a little more time to digest and compare the conditions our nation lived within the Trump administration (none of which remotely resemble the writers description).  Now, compared to the Biden administration, might he/she want to reconsider that assessment?

Probably not given the complete detachment from reality this writer revealed. Note this was written in response to a letter to the Laconia Daily Sun that I wrote which was published on December 13th, 2021 titled “What is Biden administration doing to make lives better?”.

Know what? My question is still unanswered by this writer or any other letter writer from the Left.  That’s because there is nothing the current administration has accomplished to the betterment of our nation and people.

A Response to NH State Rep Amy Bradley – Slam This! What a Hypocrite on “Sanctuary”!

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-06-02 10:30 +0000

We all know that the Democrats were all about creating Sanctuary States, Counties, Cities, and Towns when Republicans held the Presidency and were actively enforcing the Law concerning illegal immigration.

The news was replete with the Democrat Party officials and elected representatives’ pronouncements that how DARE he do that to these oppressed, marginalized people!  RACISTS!

With that as a background, let me talk about NH State Rep Amy Bradley whose big idea, it seems, is to be the replacement for the dearly departed Assault Twin NH State Rep Catherine Rogers who was the preeminent Gun-Grabber in the NH House. She HATED that “shall not infringe” bit of the Second Amendment:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

And yes, every time a gun-grabber (being a socialist/communist/Democrat or weak-kneed or weak-minded unprincipled Republican) says “common-sense” or “you don’t ‘need’ that”, they are, indeed, infringing. And no, the Constitution is a LEGAL document – go tell your mortgage holder that you are now going to “interpret” the payment terms of that document and see how far you get.  And if you want to argue about it (because you can’t diagram a sentence to save your life), let’s use the NH Constitution’s version which is much more plain speaking:

[Art.] 2-a. [The Bearing of Arms.] All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property and the state.

So NH State Rep Amy Bradley, who has proclaimed that she is all for all kinds of gun control, decided to go on a rant in the Union Leader on NH as an “enabler” of “gun violence” because a bill that she voted against would set up NH as a “Sanctuary State” against Federal laws (passed by Democrats who also hate civilians to have “arms”) or a Biden Executive Order that seek complete disarmament of civilians.

Not ONCE in her piece did she even mention “Constitution” or foundational law.  Just Social Justice Warrior Vocabulary of the Day: “gun violence” (what, can’t even call it for what it is, crime mixed in the “no morality blender” served up in a mental illness glass) and “gun safety. With a side of White Supremacist thrown in as an appetizer and domestic terrorist as soup.

Sidenote: I am suing my school board, Rep. Bradley; does that make me a domestic terrorist?  I am, as you may not know, a White Evangelical, Conservatarian senior citizen – that that tip the scale for you?

Here’s your gun safety – start them at a young age (along with a respect for life starting at fertilization to natural death):

Gun safety is taught in an Indiana school, 1956

So a bit of fisking to be done here.

RECENTLY, New Hampshire Republicans pushed a bill on to Governor Chris Sununu’s desk that would prohibit the state from enforcing any federal law or executive order, act or rule on firearms and prevent our law enforcement from collaborating with the FBI, DOJ, and ATF in the wake of gun violence.

See the top of this post about illegal alien Sanctuary. I did do a middling search to see if NH State Rep Amy Bradley had ever disagreed with that Democrat Principle.  I came up empty, so I’m not saying she hasn’t but my default stance is that she agrees with it.  Especially since she decided to vote against HB1266:

ANALYSIS

This bill prohibits state, county, municipal, or judicial officials from adopting or enforcing policies restricting enforcement of federal immigration laws.

IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT

103-A:1 Enforcement of Federal Immigration Law. The state of New Hampshire, a political subdivision of this state, or any person acting under the color of state, county, or municipal law shall not adopt or enforce any law or policy that prohibits the state of New Hampshire, a political subdivision of this state, or any person acting under the color of state, county, or municipal law from cooperating with the enforcement of federal immigration laws, including but not limited to 8 U.S.C. 1373 with respect to a person who has been detained by or is already in the custody of the state, county, or local law enforcement agency for a suspected violation of state law to include the enforcement of arrest warrants issued by the courts

So, back to her bellyaching and being a hypocrite about being willing to go against SOME laws (immigration) that she likes but castigating those people who do the same in another area.  “Nullification for me but not for thee!” seems to be her rallying cry.  Oh, and this weak tea is presented in trying to make President Trump look like he sides with her and not us:

In fact, one of the most restrictive recent regulations came from President Donald Trump in 2019, when he banned the sale of bump stocks following the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Sure, we grimaced at it but NOT because of “bump stock” but in trying to have mere ATF regulations rewritten because of a political agenda trumping (pun intended) actual law which doesn’t even mention bump stocks.  Think I’m wrong?  Show me!

And onward to more blather:

…while announcing to the world that Granite State is open for criminal activity. Republicans might as well write it on their campaign signs — New Hampshire will not enforce laws to keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals.

Making more stuff up out of the blue, thin air you breathe?  Who are the dangerous ones?  We who follow the Constitution or you who wish to override by mere law?

HB1178:

This bill prohibits the state of New Hampshire, a political subdivision of this state, 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 law of this state regarding the regulation of firearms, ammunition, magazines or the ammunition feeding devices, firearm components, firearms supplies, or knives.

You know, like the US Senator Diane Feinstein law that Maggie “The Red” Hassan has signed onto which would cause almost every kind of firearm in existence to be banned and every LAWFUL gun owner a FELON immediately.

But illegal aliens – “COME ON DOWN!” as the price is right for y’all – FREE because NH taxpayers will pay your freight if Amy Bradley had her way (see, I can make stuff up even easier than you). But she keeps digging her hole:

Not only does the passage of HB 1178 send a message that New Hampshire will not follow public safety measures,

Well, that’s a false statement (what we ordinary people call a LIE!).  Show me, show GraniteGrok readers, that anything like your assertion is to happen?  After all, gun stores are Federally licensed and if you are an FFL, you MUST follow their regs (the infamous ATF Form 4473) or lose your license. They aren’t going to risk that.

And she steps into a hole along the way:

but it also will undoubtedly help proliferate illegal firearms trafficking and the creation and sale of ghost guns to dangerous individuals.

Tell me, ma’am – since when do criminals follow the law? They KNOW they are doing something illegal. Is this going to make any difference (supposing that your premise is right)?  I doubt it because if they are already “prohibited” people (e.g., a felon), that isn’t going to change.

And people making their own firearms for their own use has been legal since we split off from the Brits – and even before that.  Nothing has changed in that regard.   See prohibited people, once again.

More than that, this bill places hundreds of thousands of federal aid dollars at risk and could prevent the FBI, DOJ, and ATF from working with New Hampshire police and other law enforcement in the wake of violence here in our state. During testimony on the bill several members of law enforcement testified to this very fact.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda. NOT.  Once again, a smokescreen.  I’ll posit that NOTHING will change.  The intent of the law is to prevent law-abiding NH Citizens from being stripped of the First Amendment / Article 2-A rights by overzealous do-gooders (at least YOU think you are – I say you’re violating your Oath of Office to defend said Constitutions)

This bill is clearly unconstitutional and will be challenged, but still, growing ever more extreme, House and Senate Republicans value bucking federal law over the lives and safety of their constituents.

And why, again, did you vote against HB1266 such that NH towns and cities COULD create Sanctuary locations for illegal aliens to come and hide in?  From a Principled standpoint, illegals or guns, they are both the same. Yet, you are FOR illegals but AGAINST guns?  Why the intellectual dishonesty?

The Granite State is not immune to violence and bigotry.

Nice throwing shade at us. But you missed extremists, TEA Partiers, veterans, domestic terrorists, racists, homophobes, transphobes, misogynists, xenophobes, and now the NEWEST epithet of the day:

Christianist fascists

Y’all always seem to have all those words (and more) tucked ever so neatly into your First Amendment holster. Hey, if you are going to infringe on my Second Amendment, how’s about I get to infringe upon your First? I have a handy-dandy application form ready at the wait for anytime you wish to speak publicly. Just read it, show me your picture ID (like I have to on a 4473), let me run a background check on you, and then have you pay me a small processing fee.

That’s for a small article. That processing fee goes up as the caliber of your piece (see what I did there??) goes down.

Otherwise, you’re merely an insurrectionist by other means for the other side.

Go ahead, Slam That!

Her article, in full:

Rep. Amy Bradley: Slam the door on NH as an enabler of gun violence

RECENTLY, New Hampshire Republicans pushed a bill on to Governor Chris Sununu’s desk that would prohibit the state from enforcing any federal law or executive order, act or rule on firearms and prevent our law enforcement from collaborating with the FBI, DOJ, and ATF in the wake of gun violence.

Less than a week later, an 18-year-old White supremacist opened fire at a Buffalo, N.Y., grocery store with the expressed intent to murder Black shoppers. This act of domestic terrorism killed 10 innocent people and forever altered the lives of hundreds of their loved ones and community members. Here in New Hampshire, instead of working to expand access to mental health care or to close background check loopholes, Republicans have taken action to make New Hampshire a haven for criminal activity, sending the message that federal gun laws will not be enforced here. In Buffalo, the White supremacist shooter crossed state lines to buy a high-capacity magazine not legal in the state where he lived. In countless other mass killings in this country, domestic terrorists have traveled to states with fewer gun safety laws in order to carry out their criminal activity.

At the federal level, regulations relating to gun safety come forward all the time — in Congress, from the presidential administration, or from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). In fact, one of the most restrictive recent regulations came from President Donald Trump in 2019, when he banned the sale of bump stocks following the mass shooting in Las Vegas. In sending HB 1178 to Governor Chris Sununu, state Republicans now want to publicly contest important public safety regulations like President Trump’s bump stock ban, while announcing to the world that Granite State is open for criminal activity. Republicans might as well write it on their campaign signs — New Hampshire will not enforce laws to keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals.
Not only does the passage of HB 1178 send a message that New Hampshire will not follow public safety measures, but it also will undoubtedly help proliferate illegal firearms trafficking and the creation and sale of ghost guns to dangerous individuals. More than that, this bill places hundreds of thousands of federal aid dollars at risk and could prevent the FBI, DOJ, and ATF from working with New Hampshire police and other law enforcement in the wake of violence here in our state. During testimony on the bill several members of law enforcement testified to this very fact.

This bill is clearly unconstitutional and will be challenged, but still, growing ever more extreme, House and Senate Republicans value bucking federal law over the lives and safety of their constituents.

Roberta A. Drury, 32, Margus D. Morrison, 52, Andre Mackniel, 53, Aaron Salter, 55, Geraldine Talley, 62, Celestine Chaney, 65, Heyward Patterson, 67, Katherine Massey, 72, Pearl Young, 77, Ruth Whitfield, 86. These were the lives ruthlessly taken by a White supremacist terrorist in Buffalo last week. We say their names and we mourn with their community as if it was our own.
The Granite State is not immune to violence and bigotry. This could have happened here in New Hampshire. Mass shootings have happened 197 other times this year in America. New Hampshire Republicans want you to look away while they strip away public safety measures with HB 1178 and welcome criminal activity in our state, which ranks as one of the safest in the nation.
Gun violence and domestic terrorism can be stopped and it must be stopped. It takes all of us working together — law enforcement, Congress, New Hampshire lawmakers, and Governor Sununu too. Governor Sununu must veto HB 1178 for the benefit of Granite Staters and our families who don’t want the state to be open for business to bad actors, White supremacists, and other criminals.

Rep. Amy Bradley (D-Manchester) sits on the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.

American Politics Seems to Have No Redeeming Factors.

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-06-02 01:30 +0000

The modern self-appointed progressive faction of the country’s political class has totally embraced Nazist ideologies. This so-called Democrat party is not democratic. Although the Democrat party members talk about democracy, typically in a way that seeks to provoke support through instilling fear, they do not practice what they preach.

Actually, it seems the Democrat party has lost all understanding of how democracy actually works. This party now censors political debate. Its supporters and members openly call for further censorship and celebrate the silencing of dissenting voices. Dissent, itself, is a valued commodity in democracy. Talking about censoring it is pure foolishness.

On one hand, the Democrat party seems willing to play the traditional role of the political left— that of the clown, the jester, the fool. This role incentivizes discussion and forces political narratives. However, the U.S. Democrats have taken this position to such an extreme that they are forcing American citizens to follow them.

This is, quite essentially, a facet of fascism.

The corruption of American politics has so revealed itself in the actions of key Democrat figureheads Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton.

Pelosi, once championed as a powerful example of a successful woman in politics, has now become likely the most corrupt American politician in modern history. With a publicly acknowledged track record of insider trading, a consistent knack for gaslighting political opponents on precisely her own party’s wrongdoings, and a distinct realization of Nazi-style tactics in J6 reactionary crusading, Pelosi is a serious threat to the stability of the USA.

Clinton, similarly, refuses to retire from the public eye. With her own track record of orchestrating the assassination of her critics, she has played the release of one of her key lawyers, seemingly getting off the hook for manipulating public opinion against former President Donald Trump on fake evidence and straight-up lies related to Russian collusion narratives. This woman continues to show the gall to appear in public, despite all indicators of public opinion pointing to the reality that she is widely despised.

American citizens need to grow teeth. They are overwhelmingly and on the whole too sheepish in the face of an overreaching government that consistently destroys their civil liberties in the public domain.

The USA is losing its soft power edge globally as it allows Democrat leaders to corrode American ideals. Overseas, Americans will be less and less welcome. Indeed, they have lost their welcome in many parts of the world. Any discussion of American ideals has become a joke. Americans overseas in most parts of the world are afraid to go in public and typically would rather hide their nationality.

Most Americans have now become so poor that it doesn’t even matter. On the current course that the USA’s leadership has chosen, common US citizens will not be able to afford more than a week’s vacation every couple of years outside of the country. Most (probably) won’t leave the continent. This is a tragedy of disastrous proportions.

For a country that was lauded less than two decades ago as a paragon of freedom, independence, democracy, and multiculturalism, the USA has now slipped dangerously into jaded tyrannical hypocrisy.

The real solution is for a revolution within the Democrat Party— that group must be thoroughly cleansed and reborn.

The USA has recently been a puppet on the strings of globalist masters. There is always a potential for the country to reclaim its sovereignty.

A Response to Drs. Hoffer, Shessler, and Chapman: How about Your Demand That Schools Break Trust with Parents over Their Children??

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-06-02 00:00 +0000

The analogous situation to what you are advocating is to see a child and then, without saying a word to the Parent, whisk that child off to surgery for an hours, maybe a day long, procedure. And like the Florida case, return to the Parent and say “Sorry, she didn’t make it”, turn around and walk away without further conversation.

You can read the Op-Ed below by Drs. Chapman, Hoffer, and Shessler that advocates against Parental Rights while championing maintaining Trust for a child and their notion of their sexuality, they believe that any breaking of trust with a Parent is of no consequence.  More on that but allow this quick sidestep on the actual politics of this as those that are needful of shaming must have it done whenever necessary and possible.

HB1341 failed because a few Republican Party RINOs voted against it after passing its Committee of Conference and a few more cowards “took a walk” and refused to do their NH House Rep job to make those hard decisions (great discipline for the Party Platform, NH GOP Chair Steve Stepanek!). In this case, to ensure that Parents came before Government (in the form of School Boards and staff) – but didn’t.  They sided with Bigger Government, School Boards, and the Democrat-leaning Teachers’ Unions.

Sidenote: In my County, Belknap, these folks need to be replaced as they “voted” (no, or “walked away”) to put Government (school boards) to be superior to Parents with respect to the Parents’ children:

 

-Voted NO and needs to be primaried: Mike Bordes (Laconia 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) So far there are 4 Rs for 4 seats

 

-Not Excused: Travis O’Hara (Laconia Ward 1,2,3,4,5,6;  Belmont)

 

 

Both are part of the “Lang Gang.” The bloc who are constantly fighting against the Conservatives within the Belknap County Delegation of NH State Reps.

There still is the huge issue left remaining: who is your Trust supposed to be in line with?  The cowards above made their choice clear. And while the issue is “settled” for now (and remember, NO Law is ever “settled” – it can ALWAYS be changed), three Doctors decided to use anecdotes to “prove” that they they are aligned with these two chuckleheads above (and those Steve mentioned in the links above).

My Summary response?  Your medical expertise does not trump my Parental Rights.  I’m not going to go over the “Blake” story – it’s irrelevant even as an “on ramp” to the rest of their Op-Ed. But here’s where they go off the rails:

It affirms that parents are entitled to receive report cards, changes to 504 plans, and other very reasonable pieces of information. However, buried in a long paragraph in a subsection of a subsection, it states that parents have the right to be notified if anyone related to the school system “finds the need for any action by school authorities relating to the student pursuant to school policies governing …gender expression or identity…” In other words, if a child requests in school to go by a different name or pronoun series, school affiliates would be required to reveal this change to the parents, even against the wishes of the child.

So, does this mean that if the schools demand homework be done, but it is against the “wishes of the child“, that teachers are to just “stuff it” not be allowed to see the academic capability of that child (or lack there of)?  Of course not – we assume that a teacher knows better than the child does for that subject matter.  And almost anyone of reasonable experience and wisdom would acknowledge that Parents have far more experience in the “my child” subject matter?

So why do these Doctors (and O’Hara and Bordes) automatically assume that a child knows better when it comes to sexuality?  Why is this not part of those “other very reasonable pieces of information“? Are they perpetuating the idea, that when it comes to teaching their child about sexuality, that they know best the age at which to broach this idea, that Parents are UNFIT to parent their own children?

Why is such a policy necessary? Clearly, students like Blake, who feel safe discussing gender identity with their parents, will do so without a policy. Therefore, this policy is targeted at students who DON’T feel safe doing so, who believe that revealing this information will cause psychological, or even physical, harm.

Wrong question – such a policy is necessary as NO School Board, NO School Administration, NO school staff, in this Dillon’s Rule State, have been given the Power by the State Legislature to lie to Parents on ANYTHING. If they truly believe that a child is in danger, they are mandatory first responders and are to contact the responsible authorities like the police or DCYF.

But they have said “We are not bound to the Law in this. We are above the Law”.  That in itself is THE reason why this policy is necessary as it makes it clear that “you can’t do that”.

And here is the Biggest Lie that those who so blithely dismiss the authority, the responsibility, and love that Parents have for their children:

But will mandating that the schools violate their privacy fix this problem? Of course, there may be some children who, because of this bill, learn that they were mistaken, and that their parents do support them. But for the vast majority, this is unlikely to be true. So, they will either keep their gender identity hidden at home and at school, or they will risk being “outed” to disapproving parents.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?  Once you are given your MD diploma and license, does that automatically bestow upon you the paranormal ability to read minds? That you can pick out every Parent that would shun their child?  That’s what you’re telling the rest of us: I KNOW BETTER THAN YOU DO about your child.

Such hubris.

After all, I can just say that most Parents still love the children even after being convicted of being a murderer, right?

They do make another point which I believe is the much more important one and not enough of these “I’m Better Than You” people even as they are not sufficiently intellectually aware enough to know that they are making it for us:

Either way, there are significant risks to these children. Transgender and gender non-conforming students have rates of depression that are twice that of their gender-conforming peers, and rates of suicidality that are between two and 10 times that of the general population. Furthermore, the rate of suicide attempts for transgender and gender non-conforming youth who live in unsupportive homes is a full 50 percent higher than those who consider their homes supportive. However, for those who go to schools with supportive environments, their rates of depression, anxiety and suicide attempts are significantly lower.

It isn’t about the sexuality choices of these children (who are FAR too young to be making such life-altering decisions without Parental guidance, or help that Parents arrange for them), it is the underlying mental illnesses underlying all of this issue.  And keeping the “tip of the iceberg” secret from Parents don’t help.  And no, guidance counselors in schools, teachers in schools, are rarely qualified to handle these issues (to blunt another talking point – really, is a handful of hours of “in-service” training on this make teachers “experts”? We’re being told that via Policy, aren’t we?).

If a child is undergoing such difficulties, SHOULDN’T Parents be told in order to aid their children? After all, I go back to the Clay County incident where a guidance counselor turned a 12-year old girl to be transgender but because of the underlying mental issues, tried to commit suicide, not once but TWICE – and the school, only then, brought the Parents into the picture.

So, Doctors, you want to put up anecdotes?  That’s mine when you put a child’s mental well-being into the hands of a school system where it is only a job.

And now the Parents are left to pick up the shattered pieces of that little girl’s life and the harm that the School system did to her – and to her Parents.

From my perspective, while you are treating a minor child as a patient, your “client” is the parent who brought them to you. While you are carefully treating the symptoms of that child to find out what the root cause of that child’s disease is, it is the Parent that you are responsible to.

The analogous situation to what you are advocating is to see a child and then, without saying a word to the Parent, whisk that child off to surgery for an hours, maybe a day long, procedure. And like the Florida case, return to the Parent and say “Sorry, she didn’t make it”, turn around and walk away without further conversation.

Would you really do that?

No, I don’t think any of the three of you would. But that’s exactly what your are wanting Schools to do, isn’t it?

And thus, your whole argument collapses, doesn’t it?

 

From the Union Leader:

HAVING BEEN a primary care pediatrician for almost 25 years, I’ve had a few really memorable patient encounters. One such encounter happened just a few months ago, with 12-year-old Blake. I’ve known Blake since birth, but until that day, I’d known him as Emma, and as a girl. That’s not what surprised me. What surprised me was the story he and his mom proceeded to tell: Blake had recently revealed his gender identity to his parents, and said they had taken it “…pretty well, they only freaked out when I told them what name I’d chosen.”

“Why did they freak out about ‘Blake’?” I asked

“No,” said his mom, laughing. “He initially chose the name Sam.”

“I’m missing something,” I slowly replied.

His mom, still laughing, explained “his older brother goes by John, but that’s his middle name. His first name is really SAMUEL!”

“But he’s not using it!” cried out Blake

“Not the point, Blake,” his mom replied, still laughing. “You can’t have your brother’s name.”

We then went on to complete Blake’s physical exam, and made plans for next steps.

What a lucky child. He clearly felt safe enough at home to reveal his male identity to his parents. In private, his mother admitted that she and his father were struggling a bit, but they were committed to supporting Blake in whatever way they could. What a gift they are giving him, I thought.

This gift is not as common as it should be, which is why we — as physicians, parents, friends, and citizens — need to oppose the current state legislative effort to forcibly reveal childrens’ gender identities to their parents. The New Hampshire Legislature is currently considering HB 1431, a Parents’ Bill of Rights, which lays out the rights parents have to be involved in their children’s school life — academics, extracurriculars, field trips, and so on. It affirms that parents are entitled to receive report cards, changes to 504 plans, and other very reasonable pieces of information. However, buried in a long paragraph in a subsection of a subsection, it states that parents have the right to be notified if anyone related to the school system “finds the need for any action by school authorities relating to the student pursuant to school policies governing …gender expression or identity…” In other words, if a child requests in school to go by a different name or pronoun series, school affiliates would be required to reveal this change to the parents, even against the wishes of the child.

Why is such a policy necessary? Clearly, students like Blake, who feel safe discussing gender identity with their parents, will do so without a policy. Therefore, this policy is targeted at students who DON’T feel safe doing so, who believe that revealing this information will cause psychological, or even physical, harm.

But will mandating that the schools violate their privacy fix this problem? Of course, there may be some children who, because of this bill, learn that they were mistaken, and that their parents do support them. But for the vast majority, this is unlikely to be true. So, they will either keep their gender identity hidden at home and at school, or they will risk being “outed” to disapproving parents.

Either way, there are significant risks to these children. Transgender and gender non-conforming students have rates of depression that are twice that of their gender-conforming peers, and rates of suicidality that are between two and 10 times that of the general population. Furthermore, the rate of suicide attempts for transgender and gender non-conforming youth who live in unsupportive homes is a full 50 percent higher than those who consider their homes supportive. However, for those who go to schools with supportive environments, their rates of depression, anxiety and suicide attempts are significantly lower.

We can’t legislate home life, but we can do our best to keep schools supportive sanctuaries. As pediatricians, it is our role to support both our patients and their parents, and usually their interests are aligned. But when they are not, it is especially important that we find ways to be supportive to both.

It is false to think that we have to choose one or the other; we do it all the time. But this bill does just that — it endeavors to support parents by violating the rights of vulnerable children. The Attorney General’s Office opposes this bill, as do numerous civil rights and LGBTQ+ rights groups, as well as teachers unions. We applaud Governor Chris Sununu for recognizing the damage this bill could do and vowing to veto it. Let’s work together to find alternative ways to support both children and their parents in our collective effort to raise physically and mentally healthy children.

Dr. Erik Shessler of Hooksett is president of the New Hampshire chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Doctors Deborah R. Hoffer and Steven H. Chapman live in Hanover. Chapman is the prior president of the chapter.

Second and Third World Nations Save Us From Biden’s New World Health Order (NWHO)

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 22:30 +0000

There’s been a lot of noise behind the scenes about the Biden Administration’s proposed amendments to International Health Regulations overseen by the World Health Organization (WHO). The chickens have been clucking about it for weeks, with people losing their minds on both sides.

The real-liberty right rightly sees this as an unconstitutional abrogation of their natural rights. You don’t (sorry, can’t) give my bodily integrity up to a room full of stuffed progressive shirts at some international court of public health opinion.

The Left (Democrats, RINOs, Never-Trumpers), most of whom are in thrall to The Current Thing, believes “The right thing to do is always what the State is promoting at the current moment, even when radically incompatible with what the State promoted a day earlier.”  If the NGO ATMs and backwashers of the political establishment say it’s good, they go along to get along.

 

 A few short years ago community participation, disease burden, resource allocation and human rights dominated its decision-making processes. Causes such as improving childhood nutrition, empowering minorities and protecting girls from enslavement and mutilation were acceptable battles to fight.

Here we are in 2022: Coercion, exclusion, impoverishment and big business are in, whilst highlighting those other areas is ‘free-dumb’ or some subversive form of denialism. Same people, same organizations, same funders, just a change of the tide.

 

No questions asked every stone left unturned. And anyone who says otherwise is evil (even if it was the institutional Left’s position yesterday or tomorrow).

As for the NWHO, Biden’s globalist “rights-infringing” amendments were proposed and supported by the likes of Australia and the UK, but in the end, they crashed and burned.

 

Botswana read a statement on behalf of its 47 AFRO members, saying they would be collectively withholding their support for the ‘reforms’, which many African members were very concerned about.

Multiple other countries also said they had reservations over the changes and would not be supporting them either.

These included Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Iran and Malaysia. Brazil in particular said it would exit WHO altogether, rather than allow its population to be made subject to the new amendments.

 

Places with little to no actual freedom or recognition of natural rights (or a government’s obligation to defend them) just saved the world. And by doing so, they proved the real-liberty leaning right correct.

The amendments undermined individual and state sovereignty, and it took the likes of China, Russia, Iran, and others to show the proof of the pudding. Authoritarian regimes could taste the tyranny, and they didn’t want it interfering with their own.

It’s a blow to the Biden Administration and the fools who backed their play, but it’s not dead or buried. The WHO has abandoned any hope of overreach this time around, but the proposals will be revisited in 2024.

They want another bit at this rotten apple.

Yes, the global progressives are no different from those who live down the street. They don’t take no for an answer, and they’ll do or say anything to get their way even when they have no idea what that is or what it means.

It’s what makes them so dangerous and it is why we must be ever vigilant. Every election, every office, every issue. Every day.

Exhausting, but necessary, because the Left never sleeps.

The Left Only Sees Gun Control

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 21:00 +0000

We have seen the suffering and mourning for a week now in Uvalde, Texas. They are starting to say goodbye to their loved ones, but it will be a long time before the tears dry for these folk who have had their loved ones taken long before their time. The shooting in Uvalde continues to be a political issue that shows the divide between the Left and Right. The Right is open to discussing all variables that go into a person creating evil destruction on others, while the Left has a single solution. The only solution for Joe Biden is gun control, period.

The main topic of conversation at today’s White House briefing was the shooting and what plans the President has to solve the plague of mass shootings. It is almost comical watching the totally inept and ill-prepared Karine Saint Pierre read generic answers to questions asked. The question is posed, and she fans through the pages to find the written response. Shameful, but that happens when you go for diversity rather than talent.

It was shocking to hear the answer to a question on the President’s stand on fortifying schools. You would think this would be a slam dunk. There is plenty of money left since schools have only spent 8% of allocated COVID money. Secure the schools. One door in monitored by more than one person, including a Safety Officer. Karine flipped the pages until she found the page that said the President opposes securing schools……Why? There is no logical explanation.

Over the weekend, we saw Biden resort to his old claim that the Second Amendment is not absolute. That is his interpretation and certainly not shared by many. He uses the example that you could not buy a canon at the time of writing the Bill of Rights. That is his assumption and not based on fact. For some unknown reason, Biden is going after 9mm handguns while Kamala Harris wants a ban on assault weapons. There is no connection between 9mm handguns and mass shootings and no such category as assault weapons. How can you defend either of these arguments?

How serious can Democrats claim to be on solving mass shootings when they have no interest in discussing options. There is no securing schools, discussion on mental health issues, or consideration of Red Flag issues. Just take away legal guns from law-abiding citizens.

In Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants a ban on all guns. What else would you expect from a knee-jerk poster child for Socialism and excess control north of the border. This is the same man that kept an entire nation under virtual lock-down, and the border closed between Canada and the United States. This man is destroying Canada just as Biden is taking a scalpel to America. When will the voters open their eyes and vote with their heads rather than bleeding liberal hearts?

When we have Joe, Kamala, and Karine all stuck on the same page of the briefing book, how will progress be made on solving a situation that needs immediate attention? Do we see a pattern here? The Border Crisis, out of control gas prices, historical inflation rates, enough Fentanyl to kill us many times over, and now mass shootings with no plan to address or solve any of them. It is far from conspiracy to say that the lack of action is an intentional act by Democrats to destroy America and to transform what remains in their image.

It’s All Deliberate and By Design and The All-Electric Future is no Future

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 19:30 +0000

The price of gas is about as high as it has ever been, and that is precisely what the Left wants. It is what they wanted Biden to do, and he did it. So, they are happy, but they are mad. Glad it worked, furious that they might have to pay a political price.

To borrow from Dame Thunberg, How dare you.

In utopia, gasoline must be priced out of reach for all but a few, and no Democrat should have to suffer politically. But we still have elections, and as poorly conducted and subject to fraud as they may be, Democrats can still lose them when the chattel get their jimmied rustled about high fuel prices.

But we’ve not achieved utopia (endless Democrat one-party rule) or a state in which they could punish you for sharing information like this, not for lack of effort, so …

 

 

…they have to blame someone else for something they want and worked this hard to achieve.

The Putin price hike narrative withers a bit anytime someone not sold on Bidenista dogma sees something like this. (Hint: share it). It’s one graphic, easy to follow and verify. A cartoon of sorts exposing a comedy of deliberate action that shows you, dear reader, that gasoline is supposed to cost this much. That, when they said that’s what they wanted or what would happen, they mean it. But not if it means someone might replace them and undo the damage.

Obama said it out loud. His policies would make prices skyrocket. And back in 2012, when they did, the nation didn’t have “I did that” stickers, but they did have Post-It® Notes, and they used them. Free speech, don’t you know. It pissed off the Left but again, that was a promise kept. This is what they want. Saying otherwise is a lie.

Democrats lie. A lot, often, with frequency. Back in 2018, NPR (Nancy Pelosi Radio) tried to convince us that cheap oil was bad for the economy despite it going gangbusters, “…it’s not such an easy thing to say that a drop in oil prices is unambiguously good for the U.S. economy.

Cheap oil is not good” combined with “our policies will make prices skyrocket” and a graphic showing how prices increase, and the jury has reached a verdict. Guilty of doing what you intended, which is to make energy prices as high as possible.

It makes everything else cost more. Everything.

And if you think for one moment that electricity will be their savior, think again. The American Left’s plan to electrify everything without even a fraction of the capacity to meet that demand is not a new tactic for progressives. “Schemes that have been implemented in full in places like Germany, where electricity has gotten so expensive as a result, that it has become a luxury.”

The electric future is no future, except for the elites who can afford it or have reliable access. It’s the end game of the Green New Deal. A program its creator admitted publicly, is about economics and wealth redistribution, and not to you or poor people or anyone but the elites who control it. There’s no equity, and the discrimination is deliberate and debilitating by design. They’re not saving the world, but if they were it is at your expense but not for you. It’s for them. And far too many people have bought into the idea that they care about the planet (they don’t) and can do something other than making life miserable for everyone else, which they have.

And that’s deliberate. It is by design.

Get Us Out of UN HR 7806

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 18:00 +0000

Will Rogers has a humorous observation on how lots of us think: “The problem with the American people is not what they don’t know, it’s what we think we know that ain’t so.” Representative Mike Lee of Alabama has introduced H.R. 7806, The American Sovereignty Restoration Act to completely Get the US Out of The United Nations. The goals of the UN were altruistic, however, the implementation of said goals has been less than desirable.

First of all consider the UN globalist strategy has followed an agenda to bring “peace through force” which has resulted in wars fought by American soldiers and financed with U.S tax dollars. The narrative of the world government movement has been a “monkey on the back” of our independence and freedom since WWII because it attacks the U.S. Constitution. Just as saws and hammers are tools to build with, the UN is a tool to build a world government.

Unfortunately, Eleanor Roosevelt, when she chaired the UN committee that drafted the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, allowed the language in Article 29 that negates all the previous rights granted with the words: “Rights should not be exercised contrary to the principles and purposes of the United Nation.” This completely turns away from the Americanist principles espoused in the Declaration of Independence that human rights come from God our Creator that was written into law in the First Ten Amendments, essentially telling the federal government what it could not do.

Over the past 70-plus years, Marxism has gradually eroded American sovereignty overruling constitutional domestic law in many critical areas. The UN is showing its true purpose to so many today. Personal health decisions being taken away have exposed the WHO’s violation of inherent rights during these pandemic years as this global malignancy has rapidly metastasized in the area of health with a compassionate desire to control healthcare all over the world. Blessed with the protection from public scrutiny by the media, this week they are meeting in Geneva at the World Health Assembly to draft a Global Pandemic Treaty with two in-depth amendments that could easily be mistaken for international law proposed by an enemy to control the American people by a foreign enemy power.

The Biden Administrations’ actions this week reveal his position to take personal healthcare away from individuals, ceding these inherent liberties to International Health Regulations (IHR). This would give WHO’s bureaucrats the power to replace doctors caring for and advising American citizens. Who of us will trust their liberty to such global power that in the past during the Obama Administration sent thousands of U.S. troops to the Ivory Coast of Africa to help the UN to enforce medical martial law when Ebola was spreading? Do we want annual “lockdowns” to be part of the American way of life? Don’t put your faith in the Senate to stop the new treaty with a 2/3 majority. Adding these controls on to IHR will be automatic new powers that will continue the dangerous trend of overriding our Constitution on the way to 100% control of our lives.

The global government is rapidly strangling human liberty with force through their concern for our physical health through the World Health Organization. Do not the above facts shed new appreciation for Presidents Trump’s withdrawal from the WHO? It is critical that Americans who have been provoked by invasive control of personal healthcare, realize that the only permanent way to defund the Global Pandemic Treaty and its new IHR, is to Get the US Out Of the UN. It hasn’t just become a monster to destroy our liberty during the pandemic. It has safely moved its globalist agenda to overrule constitutional law in many areas for decades because the majority of our Political leaders have represented their constituents as if they have sworn allegiance to the UN Charter instead of the U.S. Constitution They must be terminated at the ballot box If this counterrevolution against globalism is to succeed.

Concerned citizens would do well to inform themselves about all the tentacles of UN controls that have become “assumed powers” that illegally supersede constitutional domestic law at jbs.org. For since its origin in 1958 The John Birch Society has aimed its educational war against this UN “fifth column” that is strangling American liberty at the American electorate to send constitutionalists to office. Apparently, they are slow learners, for it is so obvious that the superiority of the historical foundation of Americanism over the UN peace by force, is another way of saying that freedom is superior to slavery. Help build a fire of truth under the feet of your Senator and Congressmen to be a cosponsor with a true friend of American Independence and liberty, Rep. Mike Lee of Alabama whose bill H.R. 7806 will completely withdraw the U.S. from the United Nations. Be a friend to liberty. Don’t be one of those Americans who think they know the UN is for peace. It ain’t so!

Hal Shurtleff on His Free Speech win at the US Supreme Court (Shurtleff v. City of Boston)

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 16:30 +0000

Fresh off his 9-0 SCOTUS Free Speech win (Shurtleff vs the City of Boston), Hal Shurtleff, the co-founder, and the director of Camp Constitution joins us to talk about the case, the experience, and free speech in America.

We just cut Hal loose and let him walk us through the process. How it started, the players for and against, supporters outside the Court, and the attention this has brought to similar violations of free speech rights on flag poles in cities around America.

From Massachusetts to Ohio, he explains how this decision has changed how cities handle their “public flagpoles,” as well as the case in Nashua with our own Beth Scaer who is in discussion with the same Lawyers Hal used regarding Nashua’s continued refusal to allow her to fly the Save Women’s Sports flag.

We also cover firearms, shootings, Natural rights, soft and hard targets, the decline of gun rights across New England, and the Left’s was on self-defense in general. And we get some updated news on Camp Constitution.

It’s a great episode, I hope you’ll make time to listen.

Patriarchy Profile: Satan Klaus

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 15:00 +0000

In case you haven’t heard of the World Economic Forum (WEF), likely because as a member of the world you’re on the target, not the invite list, here is a brief synopsis.

Picture a room full of swankily dressed billionaires and gagillionaires engaging in thinly disguised verbal masturbation masquerading as “global policy”, and pretentiously pious circle jerking (the type of behavior which actually takes place at the World Eyes Wide Shut after party) with which they have dutifully burdened themselves, because corporate take-overs and color revolutions, if you didn’t know, are actually quite exhausting.

What does one have to do to get into this elitist of elite supra-governmental country clubs asks the warm and red-blooded, freedom loving types? If when I say pedigree you think of dog food the chances of you getting in are about the same as you running a successful chain of saunas in the underworld.

Speaking of hell, that is the likely afterlife vacation spot for WEF founder and globalist super predator Klaus Schwab, or as he’s genially known among his adoring fans, Satan Klaus.  Like the lone ranger of the North Pole this Klaus has worked hard to see you when you’re sleeping and to know when you’re awake thanks to your pocket sized geo-tracker.  Like most of their dubiously named inventions your “smart” phone, which actually makes you dumber, has a double meaning.  The smartest thing about it for someone like Klaus is he gets you to pay for your own slow motion “lee-bear-ation from zee shackles of kah-peet-al-izm” (re: techno-slavery).  Resist your urge to pat him on the back, they have an app for that. Klaus doesn’t like to be touched by “zee little pee-ple”.

In a room filled by folks who compare themselves by the number of central banks they own, Klaus is decidedly a low man on the totem pole.  Making up for the disappointment of taking his family’s hard earned Nazi fortune and turning it into mere millions, Klaus does what any megalomaniacal Ubermensch would –  overcompensate  by throwing parties for the absurdly rich and powerful.  If power corrupts this group is consolidating it, absolutely.

Baby Klaus was groomed for this moment by parents who had him suckling at the breasts of a nubile and exclusive German coven with high turnover because it turns out witches don’t have the best hygiene.  His evenings were spent listening to torridly narrated stories by his third-cousin twice-removed Adolf, who liked to brag about his new job as chancellor.  If he was lucky, Uncle Addy would read him bedtime stories by Hegel or the Brothers Grimm.  Little Klaus would drift off fantasizing his real parents were Odin and Heimdallr who moved his bedroom from the dungeon to the second floor where he could see the smoke billowing softly from Dachau.  Ahh, memories.

Young Klaus was shipped off to boarding school, or “internat” if you speak supremacist.  The silver spoons, freshly removed from the homes of his Hebraic neighbors, supped borscht made red from something other than beets.  Afternoons were spent hunting big game in the zuruck vierzig in preparation for the most dangerous game – taking over the sonnensystem.  A solid C student Klaus learned quickly, if he learned anything, that success was a matter of who you knew and whether her parents had raised her to be a lesbian.  An attractive future for a man who can’t grow a real beard.

After college and narrowly dodging the Nuremberg trials, Klaus set out into the world he hoped to dominate as an economist.  Despite lengthy sessions of Marxist indoctrination Klaus only remembers a joke about economists that goes:

Three men apply for the same job, a mathematician, an accountant and an economist.  The interviewer asks each the same question “What does two plus two equal?”.  The mathematician answers “Four.” The accountant answers “Four, plus or minus one.” The economist looks around, lowers the blinds, dims the lights, then leans in close to ask “What do you want it to equal?”  He still laughs when telling it at parties, because he knows deep down the real answer is five.

Advancing to a semi-profitable career in economics Klaus felt stagnant and stultified by the stunning success of capitalism that brought him only millions of dollars rather than the millions of subjects he and his secret society brothers deserved.  He realized he needed a mentor.  Disappointed by the chicanery of a young Tony Robbins who had Klaus hopping over hot coals, clearly a part of his future for which he wasn’t ready, and overwhelmed by the amount of homework given by Stephen Covey, Klaus did what any son of reptilian overlords would.  He reached out to Satan who famously taught about what it means to make sacrifices.

As luck would have it, however, Klaus was working an evening job for his fourth-cousins seven-times removed the Windsors.  Serving cocktails he overheard Mick Jagger waxing on and on about a very influential and cosmopolitan man who once held a general’s rank as a tank driver for his beloved German army.  Klaus, not too proud to beg, convinced a sympathetic Mick to arrange a meeting.  Looking the part in his best Lord and Tailor suit Klaus became an instant fan boy of this man of wealth and taste.  In rapt attention Klaus could hardly keep from blushing as the one known as Sweet Lou regaled him with stories of a life, not unlike Forrest Gump’s, punctuated by  being at all the wrong places at the right time.  He swore he saw a second shooter on the grassy knoll while attending John Kennedy’s last parade.  For the first time in Klaus’ life he thought he was actually experiencing those things called feelings.

Lou boasted a small but international coterie of protégés, with an emphasis on what he proudly referred to as “diversity, equity and inclusion”.  Introduced to a young Hillary Clinton and an Ethopian communist named Tedros who was planning his first genocide, Klaus was somewhat shocked to find out this meant he would be working with women and black people.  “Keep your eye on the prize” he heard that sometimes scary inner voice say.  Luckily, the band of randy ne’er do wells pulled together playing games like Risk and watching movies like Austin Powers late into the night.  Smitten by the smooth styling of his new favorite character Dr. Evil, likewise bald and somewhat grotesque in that can’t help but admire it way thought Klaus, he quickly adopted the look to match his deep Teutonic aspirations.  Donning his hand-stitched by real Uyghurs Alien Lord tunic Klaus at last felt like he could take on the world, literally.

As luck and some heavy conspiring would have it these upstarts had all the right friends in all the right places to slowly and methodically take the western world by silent storm.  No longer stuck palling around with dorks like Gerhard back in school, Klaus was now hobnobbing with studs like Bill Gates.  The WEF meeting began to fill with the A-list of the super-rich, so elite you won’t find their numbers in the Yellow Pages because they exchange them in their little black books on Epstein Island.

Life is great now if you ask Klaus, who says so in the titles of his books.  Ever the optimist Klaus can find the silver lining in anything.  Pandemic you say? Time for a Great Reset!  Unpopular you say?  Time for a Great Narrative! Too many people causing climate change? We need a Great Cleansing – how many bee-llion of you should vee have take vun for zee team!

After all, we’re all in this together, right Satan Klaus?

Bidenzuela

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 13:30 +0000

In a few short years, the Democratic-Socialists in Venezuela reduced a gem of a nation, rich in resources, productivity, and wealth, into a socialist cesspool. America’s ‘Democrats’ are working hard to get it done here even faster.

America is a bigger nut, the biggest nut, but the Bidenistas, picking up where Lightbringer left off, have hit the accelerator on the Cloward-Piven mobile and aimed us for the steepest cliff they could find. We’re heading straight for Bidenzuela, and when we get there, it won’t be pretty. Not for anyone.

Food, electricity, cell service, public safety, infrastructure. That’s all going to go down the crapper and fast.

And that’s the point. The goal is chaos and destruction.

Civil war is what they are after. Marshall law. Not the COVID lockdown sort. They want the “get shot if you are on the street or out after dark” variety. Why else would they do as much as they could to make it happen? Hit all the candy-apple-red buttons, even in an election year.

Insurrection is the goal. The real thing, not the fake J6 thing. They want armed militias fighting “loyalists” on the television if you can get television.

This whole thing is a nationwide case of entrapment. Push people over the edge. Get them riled up.  And then hold the Capitol doors open, urge them inside, and then “arrest” them for “trespassing.”

Any excuse to federalize local police. Make everyone pick a side and then shoot the other side in the name of law and order. The jackbooted sort. No matter the result.

Remember, with the Left, is it always about the revolution.

 

[T]he Society will use all its resources and energy toward increasing and intensifying the evils and miseries of the people until at last their patience is exhausted and they are driven to a general uprising. – Sergey Nechayev: Catechism of the Revolutionist

 

Destroy it all, rule over the ruin.

That’s how dangerous they are. It is how badly we need a change in Washington. Not just politicians but everything. And I have zero faith that a Republican majority will do more than kick the tires and enjoy the view on the way down. They want good seats. Potemkin Democracy. Look ‘republicans.” This isn’t a one-party authoritarian state? But it is, or will be.

Bidenzuela.

I’d rather not be forced to go there, and neither would you, but they will not stop unless we find another way to stop them. And states, as I keep saying, are the only haven left to us. The only place we can secure our rights is the sovereign states. And if we can’t find representatives capable of standing up and defending us from Federal overreach and a Governor who is on their side, we better move somewhere in America that can. There are plenty of red states, and we’ll need them all, but wouldn’t it be nice to have an outpost in the Northeast?

The only state left is New Hampshire. But the DC ambassadors pretending to represent us are all in on the generational debt, open borders, gun control, and the rest of it.

And I don’t think we need to worry about Dems stealing the mid-terms as much as we should consider that their plan might be to make sure there are none.

Welcome to Bidenzuela.

Purple Flag Laws

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 12:00 +0000

Discussions of possible federal ‘red flag’ laws are being raised again.

The basic idea is that if someone is accused of posing a danger to himself, or others, you take away his guns until you can judge whether the danger is real and if it’s not, he can try to get his guns back.

Constitutional issues aside, the two main practical problems with red flag laws are (1) once the guns are taken, it can be difficult and expensive to get them back (and sometimes impossible to get them back undamaged), and (2) there’s no accountability for the people who ‘warn’ the authorities about problems that don’t actually exist.

It seems like a good time for a reminder that there’s a way to achieve the goals of a red flag law without either of these problems:  A purple flag law.

Such a law addresses the first concern by confiscating the person instead of confiscating his guns. (Persons, unlike guns, have a right to habeus corpus.)  And it addresses the second concern by adding substantial and mandatory consequences for false accusations.

Note that even in cases where an accusation is well-founded, and it turns out that a person is too dangerous to let him continue to move around freely, a purple flag law has the crucial advantage of focusing attention where it belongs — on the person, and not on the guns.  So, although they require violating all kinds of other constitutional provisions, Purple Flag Laws do not raise Second Amendment issues.

Of course, in a free country we wouldn’t even be having this discussion. But to paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, you don’t make laws for the country you want.  You make laws for the country you have. Purple flag laws may be the best we can do for the country we have now.

Quick Thought: About Schools, Bug Spray, and School Approved Minor Children’s Sexual Identity

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 10:30 +0000

We got an email from the Grandson’s kindergarten about this coming week.  In it were some instructions for the rest of the school days:

We will be enjoying lots of outdoor learning this week so please have your child wear sneakers every day and put on bug spray at home.  We cannot apply lotions or sprays to our learners.  We will be on the nature trail every day, as long as the good weather allows.  Sneakers are best to keep toes safe on the trail.

TMEW and I were talking about this – his last day of school is in a couple of weeks.  First, what this told us is that the formal classroom teaching is most likely over for the year. We kind of figured that out as the Grandson said that they were doing “camping out in school”. That’s not to say there’s no learning going on – homeschoolers take advantage of any and all chances for education and there is a lot to learn being outside.

But look at the admonition – WE have to apply bug spray to him before he gets on the bus – they cannot do any of that (bug spray, I guess, being the new aspirin).  They don’t have permission from us to give him anything without prior notification or assent.  That’s the way it should be.

Even for something like bug spray. Yet:

A. Privacy

The Gilford School Board recognizes a student’s right to keep private one’s transgender status or gender non-conforming presentation at school. Information about a student’s transgender status, legal name, or gender assigned at birth also may constitute confidential information. School personnel should not disclose information that may reveal a student’s transgender status or gender non-conforming presentation to others, including parents and other school personnel, unless legally required to do so or unless the student or parent has authorized such disclosure. Transgender and gender non-conforming students have the right to discuss and express their gender identity and expression openly and to decide when, with whom, and how much to share private information.

When contacting the parent or guardian of a transgender or gender non-conforming student, school personnel should use the student’s legal name and the pronoun corresponding to the student’s gender assigned at birth unless the student, parent, or guardian has specified otherwise.

As I have related before – they can certainly lie to me about the sexual identity of my Grandson.

Again, look what a school in Clay County, Florida did to a 12 year old girl. Send to the guidance counselor for bullying, Ms. Washington “counseled” that child into going transgender which led the child to trying to commit suicide twice in the school’s girls’ bathroom before ever notifying her Parents.

I know I keep repeating this, but this child is not the only one. The school did something that they didn’t have permission to do.

So which is worse – can’t do bug spray but put into motion the process of turning a child transgender and not telling that minor child’s Parents what they are doing to that child?

Seems like Skip wasn’t the only one to comment on this – NH GOP now taking sides in the Governor Primary?

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 01:30 +0000

Being the Chair of the Belknap County Republican Committee, I made it known of my displeasure that the new Communications Director of the NH GOP has positioned the Party to support the incumbent Governor over the three candidates (that I know about) that will be primarying Chris Sununu.

Dear Steve & Pam:

Perhaps it might be a god idea for our new communications director to read and understand the bylaws of the NHGOP, especially the section that prohibits the NHGOP from taking positions in primaries.

We all know that there is going to be a primary for the governor’s race, with at least two candidates announced in addition to Sununu- so it would seem to be highly inappropriate for the NHGOP’s communications director to advocate for the re-election of the governor.

It is one thing to advocate for the election of a Republican for governor, but quite another to advocate for the re-selection of the existing governor who is facing a primary.

New NH GOP Deputy Comms Sheriff in Town? Is Stepanek Now Only Going to Give Her One Email At A Time?

Granite Grok - Wed, 2022-06-01 00:00 +0000

(old TV reference there – a single bullet. Wonder if she’d “get it” being not from the age when dirt was being created like me?)

Someone on the NH GOP State Committee (there are ZILLIONS of them! And many of them like GraniteGrok) sent this to me.  Wow, just wow. I responded back in utter amazement:

Thanks. Stunning lack of political situational awareness.

So before I “welcome the new NH GOP Comms Director, I would direct her first to study the NH GOP ByLaws before letting loose again:

ARTICLE II: Officers of the Committee & their Duties

(snip)

No officer of the State Committee as defined in Article II, Section 2, shall participate in any primary contest on behalf of any candidate for a Republican nomination. They shall remain strictly neutral in any such primary contest.

So, did Mackenzie Rohde just commit the NH GOP to support Governor Chris Sununu (I’m…resisting…so…hard!) in the Republican Primary soon arriving?

Emphasis mine:

I’m Excited to Join the Team in Victory!

I wanted to send you a quick note to introduce myself– I’m Mackenzie Rohde and I am excited to join Team NHGOP as the new Communications Director! I’m joining the State Party after most recently working on Jack Ciattarelli’s campaign for Governor in my home state of NJ. 

I couldn’t be more excited to move up to the Granite State! As Governor Sununu says those who were born in NH are lucky, and those who move here are smart! I couldn’t be more happy to be up here in the Granite State as we prepare for what I know is going to be a historic year for Republicans.

I’ve already hit the ground running, working hard to reelect our Governor, expand our State House majorities and fire Maggie Hassan, Chris Pappas, and Annie Kuster!

This is going to be a great cycle, but Team NHGOP and I can’t do it alone. We need your help to secure victories this November. Will you help out Team NHGOP by donating?

Thank you for your support!

On to Victory!
Mackenzie Rohde

A wee bit rambunctious there, Mackenzie, or is this just a carry over from NJ politics. You probably should have a chat with Matt Mowers about such a transition…

…or maybe not.  Be more fun this way. Hey Mackenzie, did anyone BOTHER to tell you about Karen Thurston or Thad Reilly or Julian Acciard?

Welcome to GraniteGrok, ma’am!

And no, I’m not not going to call her Barney because she’d probably be thinking of this one:

Yes, I AM assuming that Mackenzie is a “she” until told otherwise – most people with that name that I know of are female.  I’ll fix it when I’m told I’m wrong.  That said, I think that the NH GOP needs to fix its website first – that SHOULD have been first thing done by MacKenzie:

Not a lot of operational discipline here, Steve – staff, emails, allowing Democrats running as Republicans…

Dems Hope School Shootings End the Second Amendment But What if They ‘End’ Public Schools?

Granite Grok - Tue, 2022-05-31 22:30 +0000

Never one to let a crisis go to waste, the usual suspects are chanting the same old Progressive Psalms about disarming Americans. The problem for them is not a few people abusing freedom, it is freedom.

That’s their song and dance, and it gets to the heart of who they are – authoritarians who hate liberty. Any liberty. And they are back to deny your right to self-defense by any means imaginable.

Local and National Leftish benchwarmers see it as an opportunity to burnish their progressive cred by claiming to care about children who survived their obsession with abortion. And the Teacher’s unions, always more interested in the socialist agenda than education or protecting teachers or kids, are on the same page while the media is happy to be their megaphone.

Their plan to protect students, teachers, and staff in public schools is to disarm everyone except unhinged, violent sociopaths who won’t follow the law no matter what the law.

Related: Even Michael Moore Finds an Acorn Now and Then

And this works for them.

The left loves crime, chaos, and mass murder. It destabilizes society and upends the culture. The Summer of Floyd riots proved that. Add no cash bail, releasing felons from jail, inviting drugs, human trafficking, and gangs across the undefended southern border—defunding police (including school resource officers).

School shootings get the Left politically aroused. And they are convinced that if they can orchestrate enough misery they’ll get the guns. But what if that’s not what happens? What if Americans realize the ‘Government’ has no intention of protecting teachers, staff, students, or anyone else?

No intention, and no obligation. Just disarm you then leave you to fend for yourself while they let their revolutionaries tear the world apart one neighborhood at a time.

What if that backfires?

The Consitution protects the right to self-defense and to bear arms, it does not protect the existence of public schools. In New Hampshire, the Constitution cherishes the idea of education but nowhere does it say the government is entitled to a monopoly. There is no right to public education only an acknowledgment that educating the public is beneficial to society*.

But where’s the benefit? It takes a school to bankrupt a village. Education taxes are, in most cases, the most significant expense in your town budget. And what do you get?

You get a curriculum that teaches your kids that they are white supremacists or racists with no chance for redemption and not much else. There is grooming and sexual predation. “Graduates” may be less informed and prepared than at any point in American history.

And now this?

The right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness engender the circumstances required for its attainment. You need to be alive – and not learning in fear – to get anywhere near such a destination.

If the government schools are incapable of keeping teachers, staff, and students from getting shot at, wounded, or killed, then the answer is not to disarm citizens who did nothing wrong. Letting authoritarianism swell to punish the law-abiding will never result in life, liberty, or happiness for anyone but those who rule.

The answer is to create opportunities to learn with less risk of harm without sacrificing natural rights or fundamental freedoms. That requires parents and taxpayers and teachers to get involved and fix the schools they have or create new ones.

What those look like will depend on you but it should probably include a healthy respect for the Constitution and the safe and proper use of firearms and the right to keep and bear them.

Even psychopaths have the sense to avoid hardened targets and if you need proof just compare mass shootings at schools with a known armed presence versus those that are known or advertised gun-free zones.

 

 

*Note: State or local law may require a district, school board, or some entity to ensure education is funded until “graduation.” If your government (that’s YOUR government) restricts how that diploma may be attained you have some work to do to decouple kids from government schools, but what better motivation than their inability to protect them or teachers from injury or death?

NH Governor Chris Sununu Whacks the First Amendment and Takes All His Credibility With It

Granite Grok - Tue, 2022-05-31 21:00 +0000

When I discovered Friday morning that NH Governor Chris Sununu had HB1625, the Sidewalk Free Speech Act on his desk I knew that he would veto or sign the bill that afternoon, right before the long holiday weekend hoping no one would notice. But I wasn’t going to let it pass unnoticed.

I sent out alerts and I was grateful that many called to ask him to sign the bill to repeal the buffer zone law that allows private abortion businesses to designate up to 25 feet of the sidewalk and street as no-free-speech zones.

However, in the end, the liar, who had promised when he was first running for governor to sign a bill to repeal the buffer zone law, vetoed HB1625. And he proved how corrupt he is with his veto message:

In the eight years since this law was originally enacted, we know of no instance where an individual or group has been harmed by it. As a result, I am not looking to make any changes at this time.

There are so many lies and omissions in that message.

It begs the question of who does the buffer zone law help? There are no buffer zones around abortion businesses and there have never been any buffer zones in the state.

Related: Tell NH Governor Chris Sununu to Stop Gaslighting Us and Vetoing Good Bills

He says “we know of no instance where an individual or group has been harmed by it” but how does he define “harmed”?

What about the harm of the liability to the State of New Hampshire? Sununu said he would veto HB1431, the Parental Rights Bill if it came to his desk because he claimed to be concerned about the liability to schools. What about the liability of the state having to defend an unconstitutional buffer zone? Any abortion business could post a buffer zone and the state would be on the hook to defend it.

In addition to the expense of defending an unconstitutional law, the state is liable for attorneys’ fees to plaintiffs that sued the state over the loss of their constitutional rights. Massachusetts had to pay $1.2 million to the plaintiffs’ attorneys in McCullen v Coakley when the Massachusetts buffer zone law was unanimously ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court.

What about the harm of a tyrannical government?  In his recent veto message for HB1131, the ban on school mask mandates, he said “One of the State’s foremost responsibilities is to know the limits of its power.” The buffer zone law allows the state to hand over control of the public sidewalks to private abortion businesses. That is a huge power grab by the state.

What about the harm to freedom of speech? Any attack on freedom of speech is an attack on everyone’s freedom of speech. Today they come for the speech of those who pray and witness and offer help outside abortion facilities. Tomorrow they will come for your freedom of speech.

Governor Sununu’s veto doesn’t help anyone and leaves the state saddled with a law that creates huge liability, is an enormous power grab by the state, and a disgusting attack on our freedom of speech, and claims there is no harm done. It’s such bald-faced lying on top of his reneging on his promise to sign the bill.

Who could ever believe anything Sununu ever says again?

So Sherm … When Is The Formella Impeachment?

Granite Grok - Tue, 2022-05-31 19:30 +0000

If you have been following the REFUSAL of the majority-GOP New Hampshire House to protect schoolchildren from groomers, then you know that prior to the vote the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office issued a totally bogus “legal opinion” to provide cover for groomer-friendly GOP reps to vote against the bill.

To be clear, Attorney General Formella either lied or he is totally incompetent. This is NOT a situation where it can be argued that two reasonable lawyers could look at the issue and either support the NH-DOJ’s position or support the National Legal Foundation’s position. This was either an attempt to deliberately mislead or Formella knows nothing about the relevant area of the law and was snookered by the woke-lawyers who populate the NH-DOJ. It’s one or the other … PERIOD.

Which is not really important because in either case Formella is not fit to hold the office of Attorney General.

So my question for Speaker Sherm is … WHEN IS THE FORMELLA IMPEACHMENT?

Blogline of the Day – Consider Them to Be Mentally Ill – And Demand that You Join or Affirm Them

Granite Grok - Tue, 2022-05-31 18:00 +0000

“The woke left is composed of ugly people who want to be treated as beautiful people, bad people who want to be treated as good people, stupid people who want to be treated as smart people, and the grifters who profit from the above.”

It’s all about the Left  trying to be people they really can’t be and are unable to admit their wrongness to themselves.  Because they can’t be, their efforts are spent trying to persuade you they are what they aren’t.  And if they can’t persuade you voluntarily, they have no problem in working to change Society’s norms out from underneath you to MAKE you accept who they aren’t.

Gaslighting – making you believe that which you know to be a lie and accept 2+2=5.  Are you willing to allow them to do that to you?

And these deranged people desperate for acceptance, seeing that you have failed them, will turn to Government to force you.  Like SAU 16 Superintendent David Ryan who believes that little children have the capacity to change their sex to anything they want to – and then punishing other students who won’t accept that codswallop.

And the Grifters just smile all the way to the bank as they’re turning Wokeism into a racket – following in the footsteps of the former Black Lives Matter (“Buy Large Mansions”) and race-baiting (Reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson easily come to mind – and that nitwit Professor Michael Eric Dyson thrown in for good measure)
