It Has Been Four Years and This Accused Sex Offender Still Hasn’t Been Charged

Sat, 2023-05-20 00:00 +0000

Four years have passed since the Howie Leung incident broke out in Concord. The scandal centered around a teacher accused of inappropriate contact with female students and the years-long cover-up by the school.

Students who stepped forward previously had been silenced, and everyone from the union reps to the administrators was keen on hiding whatever it was. The Concord Monitor, Patch, and even the Grok were all over the story at the time, elevating it to a level that could not be avoided.

Leung was arrested. The district Superintendent and a Principal were shown the door a few months later. But Leung still hasn’t been charged in New Hampshire and has been out on supervised release (in Massachusetts), awaiting trial for charges in that state.

Claire Best mentioned it in a wide-ranging email sent last week to the NH DOJ and a list of State Reps and media folks (myself included).

In January 2023, The Concord Monitor publishes an article stating that Primo “Howie” Leung has not been prosecuted in New Hampshire, that the criminal trial against him in Massachusetts has been delayed several times and is now set for fall of 2023.  Concord DA Paul Haloversen has not prosecuted him. Concord Schools insurer paid out $1.5 million based on investigations by an ex prosecutor from Massachusetts but Concord Police Detective Julie Curtin’s original affidavit remains sealed and the case seems to have progressed no further since the April 3, 2019 arrest.  The judge for the civil suit against Fessenden School Massachusetts tossed the case out completely citing the lack of evidence – the evidence relied on Concord Police Detective Julie Curtin’s statements and Massachusetts attorneys, defense attorneys and prosecutors have been unable to advance due to lack of information.


The problems with evidence fit a profile that Claire has shared on our pages time and again. Sexual assault cases arising in New Hampshire have a strange history that includes a familiar cast of characters and ends with large sums of money passing between familiar fingers.

We covered the Howie Leung story, emphasizing the Teacher’s Union and Administrative cover-up of alleged misconduct. Union reps tried to intimidate witnesses. The principal at the High school was also a principal at the Middle School where Leung is suspected to have been a bit handsy with the girls – but clearly knew something was off and managed to provide cover at two separate schools.

And after all that, the State of New Hampshire hasn’t charged him or appears likely to, and Massachusetts can’t bring a case to court.

But the money has changed hands. The insurance company paid the alleged victim for what we must ask.

If you have the time, Claire has cataloged a lot of that sort of thing in the Granite State. Sexual assault cases, witness tampering, smearing the accused, what look like payoffs, sketchy prosecutorial and court practices, and, as I noted above, many of the same players in the NGO and Political environment.

Some of whom continue to move up in the so-called criminal justice system in New Hampshire.

And there always seems to be a lot of money moving around.

What Do Marijuana And Medicaid Expansion Have In Common?

Fri, 2023-05-19 22:30 +0000

It is fair to say that legalizing marijuana is the actual top priority of the NHGOP House “leadership.” And it is also fair to say that making Obamacare Medicaid Expansion permanent is the actual top priority of the NHGOP Senate leadership.

And it is also fair to say that neither marijuana nor Medicaid are among the top issues of actual GOP voters.

In other words, the priorities of actual GOP voters … protecting students in public schools from being groomed and indoctrinated (DEI/CRT); stopping illegal immigration; crime; out-of-control government spending, and the resultant inflation … are NOT the priorities of the NHGOP “leadership.”

In fact, it is just the opposite. Sun-King Sununu proposed a massive increase in spending in his budget proposal, and the NHGOP House increased the spending. Another example: NHGOP House leadership wants an open border with Canada.

And, of course, there is the incessant normalizing of the NH-Communists, aka NH-Democrats, by referring to them as “friends,” “colleagues,” etc. Dear NHGOP leaders, if Communists like Matt Wilhelm and Debbie Altschiller are your friends … then you are no friends of GOP voters.

(Not So) ‘Green’ Full-Spectrum Dominance

Fri, 2023-05-19 21:00 +0000

This is as good a time as any to discuss the unholy alliance to advance the Green New Deal between “capitalist titans” and green Marxists  — an incredibly anti-free-market anti-business agenda that is using what appears to be military dominance tactics to achieve escape velocity.

Bonner Cohen, writing at the Daily Caller, introduces us to how this confluence of interests appears to be using “a military doctrine that arose in the Pentagon in the early 2000s. “Full-Spectrum Dominance,” also known as “Full-Spectrum Superiority.” And Biden’s recent energy and environmental Executive Orders (and related rules changes) could create a “hegemony  …without effective opposition or prohibitive interference.”

Cohen labels this Green Full Spectrum Dominance. It’s a scary bit of phone and pen EO gymnastics that, if left unchallenged, has dire consequences for the middle and lower classes, America, and our way of life. And that appears to be precisely what they are after.

A few key points from the piece

Point One.


 [T]he White House was deadly serious when — in office for less than a week — it pledged a “whole of government” approach to combatting what it told the public was a “climate crisis.” …[and]

The lengths to which the administration and its allies are willing to go to force a transition to a green energy future go far beyond government regulations and presidential executive orders.


Point Two


[T]he energy transition is part of a larger transformation of society pursued by a woke elite intent on cementing and expanding its own power and wealth, with scant regard for the consequences this will have on people of middle- or lower income.


Point Three


At the societal level, the left achieves full-spectrum dominance by having its ideological allies — inside and outside of government — control the levers of economic, legal, political, and cultural power.


Pint Four

Not in their wildest dreams could Gramsci or Dutschke have imagined that a future generation of capitalist titans would lock arms with the left in the march to transform society along progressive lines. But that’s exactly what 21st century oligarchs in the U.S. and elsewhere in the West are doing. … [AND]

“The giant capital controllers, like Dimon and Fink, have teamed up with heads of western governments and the Biden Administration in particular, to deny and constrain citizen rights while they continue to live – and intend to keep living – billionaire lifestyles,”

Point Five

Just as green Full-Spectrum Dominance can be imposed domestically, it can — by manipulating tariffs and the lending practices of international finance institutions — be used to force poorer countries in the Global South to meet climate goals set by elites in wealthy countries.


This is green colonialism, or as Saint Greta called it, Climate Change Colonialism. “A climate transition that violates human rights.” Greta was trying to stop a wind farm that would infringe on the lands of indigenous people in Norway. It is an odd objection that seems (like most of Greta’s activism) misplaced. The world’s new not-so-green capitalist energy titans have long been working alongside the watermelon Marxists to tear up African countries for rare earth metals—places where people may have a legitimate claim to being from there (truly indigenous).

The by-product of this unholy red-green axis is a massive public health crisis killing millions of brown people as the work harms workers and despoils local land and rivers for miles. These modern green robber barons don’t care about that, so it is safe to assume that exerting diplomatic, financial (or as-needed) military pressure to keep the third world from ever escaping poverty will be easy work as long as they keep doing the hard work of mining the Elites fraudulent net-zero future.

We may even have to add a few far-flung foreign wars over mining rights. Projecting power not to enhance and improve every aspect of our lives – which fossil fuels undeniably did – but to lower every standard by which Western prosperity can be measured for the amusement of the globalists in the name of a problem that doesn’t exist.

In Blue Hampshire, Parents Have No Rights … Thanks For Nothing, Low-T NHGOP

Fri, 2023-05-19 19:30 +0000

Remember what we were told by our NHGOP “leaders” after the NHGOP got shellacked in the 2022 midterms? We still have a Republican Governor, a Republican Executive Council, a Republican Legislature! Well … the NHGOP “leaders” need to be held to their words … to be held accountable.

Despite that nominal majority in the House, “leadership” failed MISERABLY yesterday … failing to get Republicans to show up and thereby allowing the NH-Communists (aka NH-Democrats and certain NHGOP) to destroy the parental rights bill and make OBAMACARE Medicaid Expansion permanent. Apparently Osborne and his “team” were too busy shilling for DeSantis to DO THEIR JOBS.

Packard/Osborne and their “team” need to step down as leaders. They are LOSERS. Indeed they don’t even know how to fight … being more concerned with “decorum” than winning. The parental rights bill was a choice between good and evil … BUT our decorous NHGOP leadership was too spineless to say that … too spineless to call the NH-Communists what they are … COMMUNISTS.

And, apparently, nothing … not even ignominious failure … will snap them out their delusions. Here is Joke Sweeney … clearly the court jester of the Packard/Osborne regime … trying to spin HIS and the rest of the team’s failure to turn out GOP Reps as a positive for 2024:

If Joke Sweeney really believes this … then he is hopelessly stuck in an alternative reality. The NHGOP can scream “we are for parental rights” from now until Election Day in 2024 and it will not move the needle one bit … calling out Democrats by name for using public schools to groom children would … but that wouldn’t be “decorous” … “we’re better than that!” You are LOSERS, Joke Sweeney, total LOSERS.

Michael Delaney Has Withdrawn His Application for Consideration for the First Circuit Court of Appeals.

Fri, 2023-05-19 18:00 +0000

Our criminal courts must be free of political interference, racketeering, and profiteering for us to have any trust in them at all. US Attorney Rachel Rollins in Massachusetts has been exposed for corruption and has resigned.

My research indicates that Chessy Prout’s (a Witness for the State of New Hampshire) statement to the US Senate Judiciary Committee regarding witness tampering in the criminal trial of State v Owen Labrie was correct. The records indicate that the State, Merrimack County, and Public Officials have attempted to cover this up in order to protect the exposure of public corruption in which they or their colleagues and collaborators were engaged.

Prosecutors Catherine Ruffle, Joseph Cherniske, DA Scott Murray, and AG Gordon MacDonald disregarded the oath of their office to protect a financial & political interest they shared with private attorneys (including but not limited to Michael Delaney, Shaheen & Gordon, Douglas & Leonard), the NHCADSV, Concord Police, UNH, the US DOJ Office of Violence Against Women and Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s and Congresswoman Ann Kuster’s political campaigns.

The public was defrauded. St Paul’s School was extorted. Dartmouth College was extorted. Lives were ruined, a life was lost, and other lives put in danger for life. People were bullied, stalked, lied to, and threatened – all in order to support extreme public corruption. There has to be accountability.

I believe it is now imperative in order to restore public trust in the New Hampshire Court System for a transparent investigation into:

  • State v Owen Labrie
  • Doe/Prouts v St Paul’s School & other copycat lawsuits
  • The Grand Jury Criminal Investigation into St Paul’s School ordered by Gordon MacDonald as AG
  • The Settlement Agreement between AG Gordon MacDonald’s office and St Paul’s School announced in September 2018
  • Gordon MacDonald’s and the NH Supreme Court’s denial of Owen Labrie’s appeals
  • Judge Richard McNamara’s ruling to keep the Grand Jury Criminal Investigation Report into St Paul’s School.
  • Geoffrey Ward’s deletion of Police Officer Files
  • Concord Police Department’s Julie Curtin, Sean Ford and Office D’Angelis
  • NHCADSV’s relationship with NH Press Association/AP/WMUR/Boston Globe and Government PR Agencies


My extensive research into this trial and the events surrounding it present unequivocal proof that St Paul’s School was targeted, Owen Labrie framed for a desire backed by publicly elected officials to get inside St Paul’s School to profiteer and racketeer.

That the successful social media campaign to shut down ABC GMA from airing a program which would have exposed this in July 2019 was a willful malicious action against the public interest in order to protect the financial interest for the NHCADSV, Chuck Douglas Esq (Chair of NH Judicial Selection Committee), Steven J Kelly Esq (partnered with Amanda Grady Sexton of NHCADSV) in Rappuano & Does v Dartmouth which settled two weeks later for $14 million of which the NHCADSV received $2.865 million I believe.

  • Rappuano & Does v Dartmouth led to the suicide of Dartmouth Professor David Bucci, who left behind his wife and a 10-year-old daughter.
  • Malicious prosecution in a criminal trial is unacceptable.
  • Racketeering for profiteering in civil suits and contractual arrangements is unacceptable.
  • Witness tampering in a criminal trial is unacceptable.
  • Allowing tampered witnesses to give testimony in a criminal trial is unacceptable.
  • Training witnesses “to cry more” is unacceptable. Manipulating the media is unacceptable.

The felonious actions by public officials paid for by the public are numerous.

NH Democrats Deliver a BIG WIN for School Choice Proponents

Fri, 2023-05-19 15:00 +0000

Democrats delivered a blow to New Hampshire parents by defeating a parental rights Bill. Cloaked in caring for LGBTQ children, Democrats along with a small handful of Republicans, defeated legislation that supported parental rights.

They didn’t like that the Bill enumerated current laws that support parental rights. Why would new legislation include a list of current laws? Maybe for parents who research the parental rights laws. If SB272 were to become law, a parent could easily see what laws have already been passed since those were enumerated in the proposed legislation. That’s helpful to parents so they don’t have to try to figure out what laws currently exist. These laws would have been easily accessible to parents. Opponents objected to parents seeing this enumerated list of current laws that supported their rights.

The parental rights bill was also criticized because of the provision that would have required school staff to answer parents honestly if they asked about their child’s gender status at school. Currently, many schools in New Hampshire include a provision in School Board Policy JBAB that instructs the staff to LIE to parents if they ask about their child’s gender status in school.

Since this policy is a direct attack on parents, many parents wanted legislation affirming their right to have school staff answer these questions in an honest way. That’s what SB272 would have done for them. Require school staff to answer the question honestly.

During the public hearing on SB272, parents warned that if this law is not passed, they will remove their children from the public school. Some will utilize the school choice programs available, others will figure out a way to get their child an education in a school that does not promote lying to parents.

There are many reasons for declining enrollment in public schools, but this one will certainly drive more families out of the public schools. In turn that means new supporters for school choice programs. It seems odd that Democrats have become the biggest proponents for school choice programs in New Hampshire, but we are seeing families fleeing their public schools because of policies like JBAB. The parent who is currently suing the Manchester district over JBAB removed her child from the school district.

In Manchester alone, the families are leaving because funding is now available to them through the Scholarship program and the EFAs. School Choice proponents are not happy about the defeat of SB272, but are cheering as they know more parents will become new supporters of these programs.

My role has always been to support public education in New Hampshire. A quality academic education where parents are respected in their role, is a ticket to increasing enrollment. So why is this recipe rejected by Democrats? That’s something that you will have to ask them. I prefer to look for ways to improve the public schools while they look for ways to push families out of them.

One thing’s for sure, those who worked hard to defeat SB272 have done more to help the school choice movement than any Republican could have hoped for.

Bottom Headline of the Day: When The New Chicago Mayor is Woker and Broker than Outgoing Lightfoot

Fri, 2023-05-19 13:30 +0000

True to form for a Socialist Progressive, new Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson has vowed (during his swearing-in ceremony, no less) to make the financial lives of “The Rich” and Big Biz miserable since Chicago is in desperate straights in the Treasury area.

 “Chicago’s New Woke Mayor Is Signed In and Vows to Tax the Rich and Big Business to Pay for Progressive Agenda – As Major Firms Vow to Pull Out of City”

Translation: your money already belongs to me – you just haven’t realized it yet. It doesn’t matter that Illinois, especially in Cook County where Chicago is located, is already hemorrhaging such people and companies who are tired of paying in and not getting the value that should be coming with those high taxes. You’d think, with all of the bad press that Chicago has received the last few years with climbing taxes, the street crime, and the gang warfare ending up in gun battles that rival entire small countries every weekend, Johnson would be spending some time trying to salvage Chicago’s reputation.

Yeah, I know, bringing a chicken to a dentist to have wisdom teeth extracted. But, by golly, Johnson’s looking to use that “extract” word one way or another (reformatted, emphasis mine):

Companies are already vowing to leave Chicago over additional taxes promised by its new mayor – a progressive newcomer tasked with addressing the city’s dwindling image under predecessor Lori Lightfoot. Appearing on a podcast Sunday, the chief executive of the country’s foremost financial derivatives exchange, Terry Duffy, voiced his distaste over additional taxes planned by the ex union organizer, whose upset win was endorsed by Bernie Sanders. Intended to dig the city out of its current financial hole, the increases are aimed at high earners and companies headquartered in the Windy City – whom, as CME is already proving, are likely to put up a political fight.

While Johnson may have won the infamous election vote, like most Progressives, hasn’t learned that votes are also cast by feet moving out of the jurisdiction. Has he not learned from economically illiterate progressives in Chicago, California, and New York, where if you have a high net worth, the government sees you as a piggy bank; while demonizing you for “stealing from the poor.” Those folks are voting with their feet and taking their piggy bank with them.

Killing the goose that lays the Golden Egg(s) in real-time for all of us to see.

Speaking to the Odd Lots podcast about 24 hours before the ceremony that will see the former Chicago schoolteacher succeed his similarly aligned predecessor, Duffy made it clear his firm is willing to join several businesses like Tyson, Caterpillar, and Boeing in relocating, if Johnson does not heed his and others’ warnings.

Unfortunately, the article then goes more into the crime disaster that Chicago has brought upon itself and not further into the financials. However, reports from Fox32 and Chicago Business push numbers from $800 million to $12 Billion. And Progressives wonder why this phrase is standard:

Taxation is Theft

Especially at this magnitude simply because corruption-ridden, machine politics-driven, and hack-o-rama livin’ Chicago can’t live within its peoples’ (and companies’) means. No wonder it is going to hold the next Democrat National Convention!

Bud Light Can Missing From Adidas Ad with Male Model in Women’s Swimwear

Fri, 2023-05-19 12:00 +0000

If you gave a BIPOC role to a pasty heterosexual actor or actress, the Left would lose its collectivist mind. They’d storm the gates, pitchforks, and torches in hand, with the full-throated support of the Democrat party. The ‘used to be’ party of women, or so they claimed.

Women aren’t even on the Left’s victim class totem pole these days. Abortion rights are, but that’s not the same thing anymore, and neither is this. It is a women’s swimsuit ad with a man bulge. Yes, the Adidas Pride women’s swimwear model and his junk. Is this a job women just won’t do? Let’s see … If I search “swimsuit model” on the internet machine there are billions of hits and plenty of women who appear more than qualified not just for the job but to be photographed doing it.

It’s a job women are still willing to do, so is Adidas denying women a job, and why is that not an outrage?




It’s a travesty of social injustice! And yet, no marching army of pussycat-wearing women has arisen to protest.

Are we all too distracted by Sports Illustrated’s decision to put a transgender woman on the cover of its annual swimsuit edition to care about Adidas choosing a man to model theirs? Two leaps whose backlash has not yet reached the size or scope of Bud Light’s misstep.

Is it a misstep by Adidas?

Collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines (who has some experience with women’s bathing suits) thinks so.

“Women’s swimsuits aren’t accessorized with a bulge.”



Lia Thomas might disagree, but I have a more critical question. Where’s the Bud Light? The official beer of men pretending to be women. Shouldn’t the can be somewhere on the SI cover or in the hand of the Adidas model? Where’s your solidarity? BUD is struggling. Lend them a manicured hand. Call it the Sisterhood of the traveling man bulge. A story about jobs women will do that the marketing companies of large corporations keep giving to men, minus the outrage.

Sure, the Human Right Council will send you a few heart emojis, but Adidas is a sportswear company. They sell shoes and clothes to athletes and to people who want to pretend that wearing them makes them athletes. Adidas has decided to risk displacing potential customers in pursuit of a sliver of the few percent who might be men pretending to be women or the virtue signalers content to swim in their own victim-class hypocrisy.

I’m not sure how that’s going to work out, but if it doesn’t, and you need a few drinks, they are practically giving But Light away.

So Kids, What Did We Learn From This Week’s House Session (05/18/23)?

Fri, 2023-05-19 10:30 +0000

We learned that when 7 Republicans and 2 Democrats do not attend House session, that spells major trouble for the bills that the House Republicans want to pass. With such a slim Republican majority (201-198), attendance matters. Add in the usual few “Republicans” that routinely vote with Democrats, and that really spells trouble. Suffice it to say, it was a disappointing and frustrating day for Republicans in the NH House. As they say, you can’t win if you don’t play.

We learned that the Parental Bill of Rights bill (SB272) died a horrible death. Six awful amendments meant to “poison pill” or gut the bill entirely were passed by margins ranging from 7 to 11 votes apart. House Democrats then refused the Republican Table motion citing, “the need for open debate on the issue”. The Tabling motion failed 186-199. So what did House Democrats do next? They totally killed the bill with a motion for indefinite postponement, meaning the bill, or similar legislation, cannot be brought up until the next biennium. So much for their feigned desire for “open debate and discussion” or “examination of the issue” of parental rights!! That motion passed 195-190. Just five votes! Now anything having to do with parental rights in NH is not legislatively possible until after the next election cycle! I hope parents remember this day when they go to the polls in 2024 – that NH Democrats despise them and do not trust them to raise or be responsible for their own kids! I’ll tell you, I have seen their village and I don’t think it should be raising anyone’s child!

We learned that parents now literally have no rights regarding what is happening to their kids in NH public schools. If your child is “confiding” in school employees regarding troubling issues, or gender identity, you may never find out about it. As Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R – Auburn) said, “For the next two years, parents will have to continue to accept that school is a mysterious and secretive black box where they deposit their children… Who knows what happens inside that box, and who knows what comes out the other side.” He also said that it’s a good thing parents have the successful EFA program so that they can pull their kids out of these schools and educate them elsewhere.

We learned that all of those Parental Rights bill votes were roll called so you can see who is a friend of parental rights and who believes schools have a right to raise your kids for you and lie to you, or keep secrets from you, about what your kids are doing in school.

We learned that House Speaker Sherman Packard (R-Londonderry) reacted to the indefinite postponement of SB 272 (establishing the parents’ bill of rights in education) by stating, “I am disheartened House Democrats chose institutions over NH parents today. They chose secrets over parent-involved solutions. They chose to ignore the majority of NH parents who made it clear they were looking for legislative support to help protect their rights and their children. House Republicans do not answer to outside influences, only to those who voted us into office to represent their best interests. Today, NH Republicans proved we will continue to be the voice of reason, and we will always advocate for the well-being of NH parents and their children.”

We learned that SB200 passed (with an amendment) 239-141, which would allow optometrists to administer vaccinations for flu, shingles and Covid19. It’s all about one-stop shopping convenience and money to be made on this. Seeing as optometrists have no record of your health issues like your General Practitioner does, nor do they monitor your vital signs, how would they even know if there could be side effects of these vaccines on your overall health or otherwise adversely affect your well-being? Who knows, maybe they’ll be practicing veterinary medicine soon as well! Especially if you end up needing a seeing-eye dog after getting vaccinated.

We learned that several other awful bills passed with the temporary Democrat majority in charge today. Thank goodness some of those bills will be sent off to a second committee, like finance or commerce, and maybe when they return to the House floor we’ll have enough Republicans on board to actually kill these awful bills.

We learned that the Medicaid expansion bill, SB263, became an all-afternoon fiasco. With 29 Floor amendments in tow, every one roll-called votes, it became a battle of wills to see which side would suffer attrition first. In the end, House Democrats managed to kill every single amendment. In the beginning, we saw vote margins of 184-192, which went to 166-198 as the day wore on. Between House Republicans who were absent and those crossing over, to those that got utterly disgusted and just left in the afternoon, the Medicaid expansion bill, with no sunset provision, was finally passed 193-166.

We learned that even though SB263 was passed, it will go on to the Finance committee and possibly come back to the House when our numbers are much more likely to kill it. Meanwhile, the Medicaid expansion language is in HB2, the budget bill, with a 2-year sunset. There is still hope that sanity in this legislation will prevail.

We learned that throughout the SB263 marathon of amendments, various House Republicans either gave a debate speech or offered Parliamentary Inquiries (PI) for the amendments, and Democrats did as well. Then House Democrats shut down the debate at 4:10 PM with a motion for “Previous Question,” which passed 196-169. This meant that every amendment that pointed out the flaws of this bill would not have a floor debate but only a PI and then a House vote. Essentially, House Democrats denied the explanation and debate of each amendment.

We learned that after this happened, we were subjected to the “Lucy Show.” Rep. Lucy Weber (D–Walpole) single-handedly gave every single PI for every remaining amendment, many times repeating the same talking points and other propaganda regarding passing this Medicaid expansion bill without amendments. In tyrannical fashion, she took over for every member of her caucus. As Rep. Turcotte (R–Barrington) stated, one thing is clear: House Republicans have a deep pool of strong, thoughtful legislators, and Democrats will blindly follow their leadership.”

We learned that every amendment on SB263 was roll called. This required at least ten people standing to second the motion, and after a while, even the Democrats stood up with Republicans to second the roll calls. Can’t say there was no bi-partisan cooperation on that point, except it is probably more appropriate that they needed an excuse to get up and stretch after sitting so long and listening to Rep. Lucy Weber give all her repetitive PIs.

We learned that Rep. Jim Kofalt (R-Wilton) was correct in his assessment of the situation. He stated, “We already passed Medicaid Expansion with a sunset provision, and Medicaid spending has grown to over one-third of our state’s budget and continues to grow as a percentage of our state budget. A program this big, this complex, and this expensive deserves a periodic review and re-authorization by the people’s elected representatives. Limiting debate on this bill and amendments runs counter to the traditions of this body and the sense of openness and transparency that we strive for.”

We learned that in the end, House Democrats proved yet again that they are the party of no debate, the party that supports secrets, lies, and deception, the party that supports government-controlled healthcare and uncontrollable spending. They are the party that rejects House traditions, and they are the party that wants the village to raise your child for you. Remember this in every election, and know that elections have consequences. If they ever get more than temporary control of the legislature, NH as we know it will become just like the Marxist states which surround us. We got a taste of it today.

Biden Will Heal Us With A Knife

Fri, 2023-05-19 01:30 +0000

The great healer and unifier has failed us. The man who said he would bring civility back to the White House has not risen to the occasion. The man who, according to former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, has been on the wrong side of every foreign policy decision for the last forty years has taken his streak to every decision.

Joe Biden made comments and promises during his inauguration speech in 2021 that many of us knew were false and unattainable. But Democrats drank the Biden Kool-Aid on that cold January morning and have been blinded by the truth and their hatred for Donald Trump. To this day, they believe the lies of the Left because they are gaslighted daily by a corrupt media that is nothing but a Left-wing PR team. This corroboration between Democrats and the media makes every Republican question whether we will ever see a Republican sitting in the Oval Office again.

Joe Biden talks a good game when the topic is systemic Racism during speeches, but in his day-to-day life, Biden tells a different story. Here are some of his memorable one-liners:

Speaking to supporters in Virginia in 2012, Vice President Joe Biden said Republicans and Wall Street would put Americans ‘They’re going to put y’all back in chains’

In Delaware, the most significant population growth is Indian Americans “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.,” Biden said in 2006.

When the popular black radio host Charlamagne tha God told Joe Biden at the end of a spirited but friendly interview in 2020 that he needed to come back on his show because “We got more questions,” Biden shot back: “You got more questions. If you have a problem figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

At Howard University on Saturday, he told the graduates that White Supremacy was the number one terrorist threat to Americans.

These comments are from a man who was mentored in the Senate by Robert Byrd, who was a Grand Wizard before being elected Senator.

Joe Biden is a racist. Only a racist would speak, let alone think, these thoughts. Kamala Harris was correct, surprisingly, during the primary debates in 2020 when she labeled Biden a Racist and Sex Offender. Those comments and exchange got her an invite to the 2020 ticket!

Joe Biden has done more damage to our society and the division between the Left and Right in two years than Donald Trump could ever do. The destruction of police forces and schools has been most detrimental to the Black and Brown communities. In most big-city high schools, less than 10% of minorities can read or perform math at the grammar school level. This educational failure is fueling unemployment and high crime rates for these population segments and might be the worst form of Racism because it becomes generational.

Biden may not suffer from antisemitism, but he has allowed the anti-Israel sentiment to flourish within the Democrat Party, specifically with The Squad and Bernie Sanders. Senator Bernie Sanders (Independent-Vermont) recently salvaged an event planned by Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) that called Israel’s establishment a “catastrophe.” Sanders is Jewish, but that has not prevented him from being caught up in the Anti-Israel movement of the Far-Left.

As Biden and Democrats continue to point to the Right and MAGA Republicans as radical and a threat to minorities, the Left lives as Racists in their actions. Unfortunately, perception becomes a reality, the Left continues beating the drum with its message, and the Media joins in and plays along.

Our National Self-Sorting is Having a Serious Financial Impact on Blue States

Fri, 2023-05-19 00:00 +0000

It’s clear from both U-Haul rentals and IRS data that high-income folks, having their selfish self-interest tickled by Blue State taxes, are moving to low-tax (that would be Republican) states – and taking their money with them—big Time.

Selfish is what the Progressives are holding to as they DO hate people that take money away from Government. After all, Government only does GOOD things with money that isn’t their own, right?  Always being frugal to the point of fingertips touching both sides of a dime.

Er, not quite:

Florida and other low-tax states lead the country in job growth. Employment grew 4.5% in Florida and 4.3% in Texas over the past year compared to 2.5% in California and 2.2% in Illinois. In March the unemployment rate was 5.4% in New York City metro region, 5% in Los Angeles, 4.5% in Chicago versus 1.9% in Miami.

Click to enlarge


California, New York, Illinois, and New Jersey are all Democrat-run States. They can blame Republicans (and do), but Republicans have little to say (especially in California) about the policies that spend all the money. Look at CA Gov. Newsom, who took a $100 billion surplus last year to a $31 billion deficit.

Illinois is also in bad shape.

Yet, even with the specter of financial ruin being their alarm clock, they persist with these kinds of policies – and people are fed up.

How to Keep the Workplace Organised

Thu, 2023-05-18 23:15 +0000

Some smaller roles within a business owner’s job can often be more difficult than you think. If you are someone who has not worked in business, then there is a good chance that you think that your main concerns would be making profits and getting sales. However, there are a lot more issues within a company than might meet the eye.

One of the more difficult tasks you are going to be faced with as a business owner is keeping your workplace organised. The two major components of this are going to be both person management, as well as time management. Of course, if these were your core responsibilities, then there is a good chance you might not find it too challenging. However, putting it on top of all of the other jobs you have as a business owner becomes difficult. If you need some help when it comes to keeping your office more organised, then here are some tips that could make your life easier.

Make Sure Staff Are Doing Their Jobs

You are not going to be able to do every single job in the office. If you could, then you would probably be the best professional in the world. However, you can’t, which is why you need to rely heavily on your staff to do a good job. Things can start to become messy when the members of your team are not doing their jobs correctly. This might mean they are procrastinating too much, or even just not working well as a team. Making sure that every single person is doing their job is going to make sure that these jobs get done.

You also want to make sure everyone is coming into work well and capable of doing their jobs. So, don’t be afraid to send someone home if they are too sick or overtired. As well as this, if you are faced with an issue where you think an employee might be using drugs and alcohol on a working day, then this is something to address. Just make sure to use a hair follicle drug test to be sure of your concerns.

Have a Good Staff Rota

Having a good team means that you don’t have to put as much work into making sure staff are doing their jobs. So, even if this means the employment process is much longer, be sure of the people you are hiring. Once you have a good team, the worries of being organised are going to be much lower.

Don’t Be Afraid of Making Changes

Sometimes, things just don’t work out as you might like them as a business owner. You might implement some rules in the workplace which are just not working. Going ahead with these kinds of methods that don’t work is going to leave things very messy and disorganised. This is why you should never be afraid of making changes. Being able to adapt is a sign of being a good business owner.

Vegans Are Made of Meat and They Are Bad for The Planet

Thu, 2023-05-18 22:30 +0000

A not-so-old adage says cows eat grass; therefore, steak is plant-based meat. I was reminded of that last week when someone was talking to me about some vegan encounter of the third kind—the COIVD-era equivalent of a food Karen.

It occurred to me that vegans are made out of meat. Don’t get Jeffrey Dahmer on me; I’m just putting that out there.

THAT reminded me of a clip I’d shared from season four of Yellowstone. Kevin Costner is John Dutton. He gets a call about an anti-meat protest and briefly chats with the ringleader (Summer) about killing “helpless” animals. It starts with, “You ever plow a field, Summer?, and ends with, “The real question is, how cute does an animal have to be to die before it feeds you.”



I finally got to watch the full episode it is from, and it always makes me smile.

THAT reminded me of the Impossible burger, fake meat, and a parallel lie told by the folks working doubly hard to make an already hard thing (life) more miserable. The claim is that fake meat is better for the planet than the commercial beef industry. We know that’s not true. But then there’s the fake-meat splinter faction that insists lab-grown meat – a new fad embraced by the likes of Bill Jab Em’ All Gates – is better for the planet than the real thing, and (Surprise!) that’s not true either.


In the study, the scientists estimated the energy required for stages of lab-grown meat production, from the ingredients making up the growth medium and the energy required to power laboratories, and compared this with beef.

They largely focused on the quantity of growth medium components, including glucose, amino acids, vitamins, growth factors, salts, and minerals.

They found the “global warming” potential of lab-grown meat ranged from 246 to 1,508 kg of CO2 equivalent per kilogram of lab-grown meat.

The figure is four to 25 times greater than the claimed average “global warming” potential of retail beef.

According to the experts, this does not change depending on which animal’s cells are being grown and the meat that’s being created, whether it’s beef, chicken, or lamb.

It’s a very long and tedious scientific paper with a lot of stuff that is beyond my burger, but the idea itself makes sense. Farming has long been a bogeyman of the CO2 cult and its hippie predecessors. They were concerned about fertilizer, algae bloom, and genetically engineered foods and still are but not genetically modifying vaccines.

They then objected to farming’s massive plumes of carbon dioxide – a number that’s larger when you pretend it’s organic farming, but we are meant to believe that plant-based meat (a lot more agriculture, processing, and manufacturing) wouldn’t make that problem worse – which it actually would and does.

The response to that problem  (or so some suggest) is lab-grown meat. Synthetically duplicated meat-like material from something that might be but probably is not meat. That’s going to save us. But what about all the jobs to create those no farms, no food bumper-stickers? No worries. Lab-grown meat is not going to “save us.”

As noted above, growing meat in a lab appears to be twenty-five times more dangerous to the planet (emissions-wise) than beef on the hoof if that sort of thing concerns you. Not I, but the hypocrisy of anti-co2 hypocrites replacing essential protein with garbage whose manufacture releases exponentially more carbon than the real thing (since they pretend to care) does.

It is a process whose “emissions” would fill the bank accounts of advocates who are also doing what they can to make the real thing unaffordable (just like oil, gas, water, electricity, food, housing, travel, …).

I’m just hoping people notice how bad this is all around and push back especially the fake virtue-signaling no-meat planeteers. If things go sideways and badly, they won’t know how to hunt anything but people.

Vegan cannibals. I bet they’ll demand special rights and complain about the emissions from the fires you’ll need to cook and stay warm.

2A Happy Ending: Don’t Mess With My Son OR My Dog!

Thu, 2023-05-18 21:00 +0000

Stupid people continue to play stupid games and in this case, win stupid endings. I will say that the Dad must have been pretty accurate as he defended both (and his Mom elsewhere in the house):

A pair of masked men broke into a Tennessee home last week, tased the family dog, and held the homeowner’s teenage son at gunpoint, New Window WSMV-TV reported. But the homeowner armed himself, opened fire, wounded one of the intruders, and killed the other, the station said.

To quote an old song, “Now THAT’S the way (uh-hu, uh-hu) I LIKE it…!”

Decisions have consequences, and two were made one after the other:

  1. Two guys decided that they were entitled to other peoples’ stuff OR were just plain evil and wanted to hurt someone. Or both.
  2. Dad made the decision to exercise his Second Amendment Right to own and bear arms by purchasing a semi-automatic weapon (a Glock, so it seems) and became proficient in using it under extreme duress.

Murfreesboro police told WSMV they responded around 8:30 p.m. Friday to a home in the 100 block of January Street. A preliminary investigation indicated two masked intruders broke into the home through the front door, tased the family’s dog, and held the homeowner’s teenage son at gunpoint, the station added.

“I heard my dog make like a noise like something was hurting, and I heard taser,” the homeowner, who wishes to remain anonymous, New Window told WTVF-TV.

He added to WTVF, “Then I heard my son holler out ‘Don’t shoot!’ so I knew something wasn’t right then, so I retrieved my gun, and came out of my room, and that’s when I seen the intruder had the gun pointed at my son.”

And then instinct (and I would imagine practice):

With that, the homeowner shot the two intruders, WSMV said.  Police found one masked man with multiple gunshot wounds near the home’s front door, WTVF said, adding that 52-year-old Kevin Ford was pronounced dead at the scene. Another intruder — 42-year-old Clifford Wright — was found at the Salvation Army on Main Street suffering from several gunshot wounds, police told WSMV, adding that Wright was treated at a hospital and taken to jail.

Several gunshot wounds X 2 – good shootin’ pardner!  That’s at least 3 or 4 per perp. That would be a high percentage with a 10-round mag.  Still a good aim, even with a 15-round mag. It was clear with the exit bullet holes through the house wall means he did miss.

This goes to show that the gun-grabbers and their incessant insistence on passing meddling laws to restrict magazine capacity might have gotten all of them killed (running out of ammo at a time when most needed – the story didn’t say if he was carrying an extra mag).

As I was reading this story at The Blaze, I kept thinking, “He’s alright, his Mom’s alright, and so is his son. But what about his tasered dog (the Dad’s “early warning system)?”  Fortunately, the news report had an update:

Censor Much, Mikey-G? … NH-NeverTrump Journal Ignores The Durham Report

Thu, 2023-05-18 19:30 +0000

So there was this oh-so-minor development earlier this week. Nothing much, really. Just exhaustive, indisputable proof that the FBI tried to rig the 2016 election and then carried on a soft coup when its chosen candidate, Hillary, lost. (Dear (some) readers … I’m being sarcastic.

The Durham Report is the proverbial Big F*****g Deal.) For example:

Needless to say, extremely relevant to the 2024 election. Yet over at NH-NeverTrump Journal, it’s like the Durham Report doesn’t exist … no mention of it at all. What’s up with that, Mikey-G? What? Can’t hear you, Mikey-G?

Vermont Celebrates Roadside Billboard Ban That The Dems Green Energy Mandate Will Make Meaningless

Thu, 2023-05-18 18:00 +0000

Fifty-five years ago, the State of Vermont became the first in the nation to ban roadside billboards. I didn’t know that, but now that I do, celebrating the “accomplishment” – and they are – given the current direction of state energy policy is ridiculous.


In the late 60s and early 70s, state lawmakers examined a number of environmental bills including Act 250, the bottle bill, and a billboard ban. Former state Representative Ted Riehle, R-South Burlington, spearheaded the initiative to ban off-premise advertising. The landmark law is widely credited with helping Vermont maintain its rural natural scenery.

Environmental groups today say the tourism industry saw the bill as an economic opportunity. “I can’t tell you how many people visit me and say, ‘Wow, something’s really different here, I can’t put my finger on it’ — for days. Or, they will say, ‘Wow, there are no billboards. All of a sudden, I’m not attacked by advertising by every turn in the road,‘“ said Brian Shupe with the Vermont Natural Resources Council.

Rural natural scenery. Environmental groups say. Something’s really different here.

If you missed it, the Democrat-run state of Vermont has been on a fast train to a California-style green energy utopia. Electric everything, and you can’t use nuclear. Hydro is bad (for reasons still unclear). Still, they need to produce enough electricity from the sun and the breeze to power everything, so the state will need to erect a significant number of scenery-disrupting solar and wind farms.

It’s the law, and rather than repeal that or rewrite it, they are committed to ending fossil fuel-powered cars and replacing gas, coal, and oil with electricity. To do that, the landscape will need to be thoroughly transformed. Picture the forests of wind turbines – giant metal and polymer structures breaking the horizon at every turn, secured with tons of concrete planted in giant holes dug into the  “rural natural scenery.” And just below that, a chunk of once scenic mountainside, farm, or field will need to be cleared for solar panel farms that will make the earth beneath them useless for much else.

And don’t forget the new infrastructure to store or carry all this scrumptious planet-saving “green” energy. You will need banks of batteries, transfer technology, quite a few additional transformers (at nearly every turn of the road), and more or newer overhead transmission lines crisscrossing the state.

But hey. Congrats on the billboard ban thing. Great work.

How Exercise Has Become the Go-To, Easy to Access, No Prescription Needed, Pick-Me-Up

Thu, 2023-05-18 17:00 +0000

This article looks at how exercise has become the go-to method for more people than ever to feel good. It is something that we can all do, no matter how simple or basic the exercise or action is being done. Modern life is increasingly stressful and complicated, and there has been an increase in the overall societal levels of anxiety and depression. This article shows that there may be a magic pill, and it is the dose of regular exercise that we can all do and have access to.

The Rise of Home-Based Exercise and Fitness

Exercise in its various forms and guises has always been critical for many people’s lifestyles, and yet, the rise of home-based exercise increased dramatically during the recent pandemic. It may have been necessary for many during the pandemic, but now, it’s the new normal and home-based exercise has spread faster than could ever have been imagined. The conversion of garages and unused spaces into fully equipped home gyms and fitness centers has been one of the biggest changes in home usage over the last 5 years, and it’s all down to the number of people now exercising at home.

The Realization of the Importance of Exercise

As society as a whole is living longer, happier, and healthier lives, one of the main realizations and drivers of this new longevity is the realization that exercise and weight training is the basis or foundation of great health and well-being. There is a growing elderly population that uses exercise for proactive health as a means to reduce ailments, decrease hospital visits, and improve overall health and wellness. It is, however, a realization that includes all genders, ages, and people from all walks of life, and with the rise of the mixed fitness and athletics club, such as Etage Pittsburgh that offers a wider range of exercise options, for everyone, it is no wonder that more people are exercising. This is simply based on the realization of its importance and the widespread availability of professional spaces to work out and exercise.

It’s the Best Natural Pick Me Up There Is

As research and the writing around the benefits of exercise and fitness have increased, it is now realized and accepted that exercise can make you feel better about yourself, as well as improve your physical state. There is arguably no natural pick-me-up as good as exercise. No matter how much you manage to do, from a small walk, taking the stairs, or a weight training program that manages to increase your heart rate, it is all going to improve your mood and your health.

The takeaway is that you too need to think about how to include and incorporate a sustainable exercise regime into your life. It’s simple enough to do and the benefits are remarkable. The proviso is that you will also need to consult a medical practitioner or your doctor if you have any concerns or are starting an exercise regime for the first time. Then, just have fun with it and find a form of exercise that works for you. The possibilities, as touched on here, are somewhat endless.

If They Really Want Donald Trump to Lose the Primary ‘Kiss-of-Death’ Chris Sununu Should Endorse Him

Thu, 2023-05-18 15:00 +0000

The Sununu family business is politics, so Chris Sununu running for office was never a surprise. Nor is his being a world-class RINO peddling the Never-Trump narrative. It’s a family tradition. But if they want Trump to lose the Primary, the odds of that improve significantly if Chris endorses him.

I know that Chris has been going on cable news for (it seems like) years now, bashing President Trump. Give him a microphone, and the odds are that he has something bad to say about the guy. Mostly Never-Trumper narratives suggest he, like his Trump-hating brethren, is either blind, misinformed or a serial fibber.

On Tuesday morning, Chris Sununu was on a local radio station saying Donald Trump has no ability to get things done. Really?

Energy independence, border security, blooming peace in the middle east, and a booming economy. He brought manufacturing jobs back to America and put China and Iran on notice. He got tax cuts passed for regular folks, criminal justice reform, health care and prescription drug reform, VA reform, a record number of Circuit Court nominees approved (judicial reform), signed 12-week parental/family leave into law, made Hemp and CBD legal in the US, got NATO to pay for more of its defense spending, asked an openly gay US ambassador to lead a global initiative to decriminalize homosexuality, and created record numbers of jobs and wages for kids, teens, women, and people of color. That’s the shortlist.

Here is a longer list of the hundreds of things Trump got done, including a rare exception to the rule in politics. Donald Trump tried to do or did everything he campaigned on. He did that too. Do you know what Trump didn’t do? He didn’t start any new wars. Is that what Sununu means?

Back to my point. That if they want Trump to lose, Sununu needs to endorse him. Sununu endorsed Chuck Morse, and he lost, then supported the guy who beat Morse – Don Bolduc – who lost.

Sununu endorsed Geroge Hansel in the NH CD-2 primary, and he lost.

Sununu endorsed Matt Mowers, he lost.

Chris Sununu even endorsed people we thought would be good, like Rich Girard and Victoria Sullivan. They both lost. So you see my point? I’m sure he’s gotten a few right, but given the odds, especially in state and national races, if Chris Sununu truly believes Donald Trump can’t win and will not get anything done, he needs to endorse him in the Republican Primary.

Trump has a 45-point primary lead over DeSantis, and no one else comes close (Sununu is at 0.7%).

And since Governor appears to be his political ceiling, and he hasn’t had to run against anyone for the job in the past three elections (he barely one his first Primary, if you recall), I don’t see what else he had to offer the Never-Trump wing of the GOP.
