The Worst Relationship the World has Ever Known

Sun, 2022-05-08 20:00 +0000

If you have ever had any sort of relationship with anyone, you ought to have a keen sense (unless you are an obsessive naval gazer) that nothing about socialism could ever possibly work.

People are fundamentally similar macroscopically, but microscopically we’re all a little different. And not because of skin color, culture, faith, or upbringing. Even when those things are the same, we are each our own selves in unique and often exciting ways (and sometimes not so exciting).

Be someone’s friend or significant other, and this is obvious. The success of a friendship hinges on big things you have in common, but after spending a week or just a weekend in close quarters with them, you might wonder why you ever liked each other. Not always, of course, but there are differences—little things.

More intimate relationships, successful ones at least, require greater tolerance levels, willingness to adapt, and a stronger desire for the benefits of being a couple than not. In the latter sense, you work together to cohabitate indefinitely. But if you forget that and begin to allow little things to niggle away at the edges and become big things, you are likely doomed.

That’s a cursory evaluation for political explanation purposes, but it demonstrates why central planning can be offensive to the human condition even on the most superficial level. A few hundred politicians (or just a handful) aided by an impenetrable wall of bureaucrats can’t possibly attend to anyone’s wishes but their own, at the expense of all others.

The handful, dozen, or in some cases, scores of little things that make you different are either meaningless to the central planner or an obstruction. They must be ignored or plowed under. And while people are willing to give up some freedom for the perception of security, or some things to satisfy the lie that the State is trying to care for everyone, the planned economy accomplishes none of that.

Almost everyone ends up on the wrong end of a co-dependent relationship where your “partner” has police powers and very likely all the guns.

You find yourself in a relationship where you constantly walk on eggshells. You have to police what you say, where you go, what you buy, and who you know.

The slightest inference of “impropriety” could have you put to the question, detained, confined, or worse.

Life is unnecessarily burdensome in that world, including personal relationships with people all suffering under the weight of the same boot.

No one wants to be trapped in an authoritarian relationship, be they a co-worker, friend, or lover, so why would you think one with your government could be any better?

It is a relationship where you are not only the 24/7/365 subject of someone else’s will. Your labors are taxed heavily to fund the abuse.

The constitutional Republic may appear messy, but it lets you be you as long as being you doesn’t prevent someone else from being themselves under the thinnest possible framework of laws needed to protect life, speech, thought, contract, and property.

And while we are well on our way down the road to the wrong end of a co-dependent relationship with a “partner” who has police powers, we’ve not wholly tied a knot we can’t undo, but we’re close.

And getting closer thanks to misguided people who think the government has any interest in helping them pursue their individuality.

Jack Brewer is a Man We Should Praise

Sun, 2022-05-08 18:00 +0000

Jack Brewer was an NFL player for four teams and forty games. He was undrafted probably because of his lack of height and weight. He may have been too small for the game of football, but he is a giant of a man.

Brewer left football for the world of finance and then for the creation of the Jack Brewer Foundation. Jack Brewer is not a perfect man and has made his share of mistakes, but he has given himself to God and service to the young.

Since 2006, the Jack Brewer Foundation has helped populations worldwide combat extreme poverty and human rights challenges. The areas he has reached out to for those in need are Meals on Wheels, Maternal and Pediatric Health, Disaster Relief, and American Heroes/Pal. 

To date, JBF has delivered over $70 million in medical aid, supports over 35 orphan care centers, has helped deliver sports equipment to over one million underserved children, implements programs aimed at addressing fatherlessness in America’s hardest-hit black communities, and helps bring medical care to over 10,000 women and children around the world.

Jack Brewer has devoted his life to helping others. He has maximized the contacts he made in sports and finance to help those in need find a better path.

That is not how Joy Reid of MSNBC sees it.

She seized the opportunity her prime time show offered to defame Brewer and his work. There is a reason that her show consistently has the lowest ratings on mainstream media. Why she chose to attack Brewer is anyone’s guess, but it may cost her dearly.

The situation began when some of the children from one of Jack Brewer’s facilities appeared with Governor Ron DeSantis at a press event about the Parental Rights Bill DeSantis signed into Florida law. Reid Tweeted that the children were being used. “This mismisuse of Black boys is tantamount to child abuse,” the MSNBC host of The ReidOut tweeted on the day the bill was signed while sharing a post from Democratic Florida state Senator Shevrin Jones that called the photo “indoctrination.”

Jones’ comment is ironic as the bill DeSantis signed involved the indoctrination of grade school children exposed to sensitive sexual topics in grades K-3. “I would really like to hear the back-story on who these kids were and how they wound up at a DeSantis event. Given how anti-Black DeSantis is, using Black children this way is extra sick,” Reid continued. In for a penny, in for a pound. Unfortunately for Reid, she did not think before she took to Twitter.

“Ms. Reid’s reckless statements placed these kids in danger. Certain people motivated by Reid’s comments are furiously trying to figure out their identities,” Mr. Brewer wrote to Ms. Reid, adding that he demanded a public apology by May 2nd.

In addition to the public apology, the former NFL star said during a series of interviews with Fox News hosts last week that a police report had been filed against the MSNBC host last week.

“When you put out to your 2.1 million followers to go find where my kids are and who they are and who brought them that’s a direct threat,” Mr. Brewer said while giving an interview on Fox and Friends with host Steve Doocy.

Joy Reid is supposed to be losing her time slot. That was announced in January but word is the Network is fearful of Racist claims should they cut her loose. They have to. Her viewership is down 51% from the initial year in 2020. She relies on controversy rather than facts or sound opinions. She is a hack who tries to stir up emotions, but her viewership is so low that there are not many emotions to stir. Maybe one of the court cases against her will fall the right way and the help wanted sign can go up to find her replacement.

Survival Sunday

Sun, 2022-05-08 16:00 +0000

First, remember that I am merely an “enlightened amateur” as far as anything survival goes.  Please vet & check on your own.  Consider these to be priming the pump for your own investigations.

Second, the hour is late and I fear bad times are imminent, but even a month of food, water, etc., puts you well ahead of most of the sheeple.  IMHO, set your minimum sights on a three-month period.

Third, two things will be critical for having the best chance of making it through:

  1. The proper mentality: first and foremost in survival is having a flexible mentality and cultivating the ability to adapt.
  2. Having a meatspace network of people that are likeminded: start cultivating your community ties and building alliances with neighbors (note: don’t babble about the Jab or globalists or depopulation, or start pointing political fingers when doing this)… and remember, the first rule of PREP CLUB is that there is no prep club.

Fourth, as you read here, note that I present an aggregation of articles that I think are interesting, but I do not have time to vet them.  Caveat emptor.







Understand that short of years of preparation and untold wealth, you cannot possibly be fully prepared for everything.  But even some preparations, ideally at least 90 days of food, water / water purification, etc., puts you head and shoulders in front of the vast majority of the sheeple who will be in jaw-gaping astonishment when the SHTF.  The only relevant questions are:

  1. When does it start?
  2. How bad will it get?
  3. How long will it last?
  4. What will the aftermath look like?




50 U.S. Code § 4512 – Hoarding of designated scarce materials

In order to prevent hoarding, no person shall accumulate (1) in excess of the reasonable demands of business, personal, or home consumption, or (2) for the purpose of resale at prices in excess of prevailing market prices, materials which have been designated by the President as scarce materials or materials the supply of which would be threatened by such accumulation. The President shall order published in the Federal Register, and in such other manner as he may deem appropriate, every designation of materials the accumulation of which is unlawful and any withdrawal of such designation. In making such designations the President may prescribe such conditions with respect to the accumulation of materials in excess of the reasonable demands of business, personal, or home consumption as he deems necessary to carry out the objectives of this chapter. This section shall not be construed to limit the authority contained in sections 4511 and 4554 of this title.

(Sept. 8, 1950, ch. 932, title I, § 102, 64 Stat. 799; July 31, 1951, ch. 275, title I, § 101(b), 65 Stat. 132.)

Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

Counties With Facemask Mandates Had 85% More “COVID Case Death”

Sun, 2022-05-08 14:00 +0000

There is extensive research on why masking healthy people is not just a bad idea. It can be dangerous to their health. From hypoxia to pulmonary fibrosis, masks mandates are a public health considerable risk.

So, what if, on top of that, they resulted in more COVID deaths?

Dr. Zacharias Fögen, who favors masking to reduce viral infection (for those keeping score), has a research paper published  in Medicine that you might want to share with your local politicians and health “experts.”

Fögen analyzed data in Kansas counties and came to this conclusion (emphasis mine).


(Daily Sceptic) It is about whether masks decrease case fatality from COVID-19 (because less viral material is transmitted) or increase it. Increase sounds illogical? Ask yourself if you would wear the mask of a Covid patient. You probably wouldn’t, otherwise you could become infected by inhaling the viruses he or she breathed into the mask.

My study, based on the U.S. state of Kansas, provides the answer: case mortality was significantly lower in counties without mandatory masks. Mandatory masking increased case mortality there by 85%.


Fögen still believes masking has a place in reducing viral transmission, by the way. He is not a so-called “anti-masker.” But he has demonstrated through his research and analysis that masks and mask mandates may contradict their stated purpose. Instead of improving public health, they make matters significantly worse.

This contradiction is not new or “news” to our readers. We’ve shared mounds of data on the problem of mass masking, primarily as political theater.

Politicians and public health officials have been quick to impose mask mandates because it looks like they are doing something. And they are – they are making people sick.

The data and expert commentary we have shared indicate that masking the non-symptomatic or a-symptomatic can do more harm to them than good for the same reason masking the symptomatic resulted in 85% more COVID death in Fögen’s study.

Masks block a prime bodily defense mechanism for foreign invasion. The ability to exhale your human exhaust into an environment where it may be diluted or destroyed by nature.

Rebreathing your own exhaled breath for hours every day produces a significant risk to human health, not the least of which is inhaled fibers from masks worn or handled repeatedly throughout the day or even over days. Pulmonary Fibrosis is a slow death that begins with tiny fibers deeply embedded into lung tissue. There is no treatment or cure, and mass masking will likely increase cases and deaths from this condition in years to come.

To “protect” people from an infection that nearly 100% of them would survive. People that –  thanks to mask mandates – may have suffered a more severe illness (requiring hospitalization) or even death when neither would have been the case absent masking mandates.

Looking at counties in Kansas with and without Mask Mandates, Fögen’s data shows that counties without mandates had fewer COVID deaths than those with them.


The cause of this trend is explained herein using the “Foegen effect” theory; that is, deep re-inhalation of hypercondensed droplets or pure virions caught in facemasks as droplets can worsen prognosis and might be linked to long-term effects of COVID-19 infection. While the “Foegen effect” is proven in vivo in an animal model, further research is needed to fully understand it.


I’m not sure he has naming rights to something observed or repeatedly reported for two years, but we need to call it something. And his data-crunching in Kansas gives the theory long legs. Mask-mandated counties had significantly more COVID deaths.

This means that we should also expect the pro-mask machine to rebut this with contrary “research” even if they have to invent a project and publish a shoddy paper that will inevitably be retracted.

And before you go off half-cocked on some pro-mask rant, take a few minutes to listen to the testimony of Stephen Petty. He is an industrial hygenist—an expert on the topic. And I think you’ll find that The Fögen  Effect’ makes perfect sense.

Common sense.

I also recommend Dr. Collen Huber’s “The Defeat of COVID.” It is loaded with research papers, including several on making, and is the source for my comments n the threat of Pulmonary Fibrosis.

And finally, to recap, this paper found that mandatory masking resulted in 85% more COVID-case fatalities. If the goal is to reduce COVID, hospitalization and death mask mandates need to stop.

State Employee Rapes Girl and Sununu Wants to Help Cover up Future Cases

Sun, 2022-05-08 12:00 +0000

In Kevin Landrigan’s column in the Union Leader on April 23, he summarized an article in the Boston Globe that told the story of a young teen girl who was repeatedly raped by a New Hampshire government employee at the Sununu Youth Services Center in Manchester.

When she became pregnant, she was taken to an abortion facility where she was administered RU-486 abortion pills against her will, very likely at the Manchester Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood is infamous for helping cover up the rape of minors. In this case, the rapes were covered up for years.

NH Governor Chris Sununu has said he will veto HB1625, the Sidewalk Free Speech Act which would repeal the New Hampshire buffer zone law that allows private abortion businesses to ban people offering help to abortion-vulnerable pregnant mothers from up to 25 feet of the public sidewalks and streets outside the entrances to their facilities.

Without someone on the sidewalk to offer help, it is much easier for rapists to cover up their crimes by forcing their victims, especially underage victims, to get abortions.

Related: Five More Reasons to Repeal the “Buffer Zone”

Governor Sununu loves to brag about being “pro-choice” but this girl and many others don’t get a choice. Over half of abortions in America are unwanted or coerced.

Please contact Governor Sununu and ask him to sign HB1625 and help protect vulnerable girls and women from forced abortions. He can be reached at 603-271-2121.

Laconia School Board Chair Aaron Hayward Will Have a Pleasant Surprise on Monday Morning

Sun, 2022-05-08 10:00 +0000

Laconia School Board Chair Aaron Hayward will have a pleasant surprise tomorrow morning given what I’m being told about the OTHER coverup that includes Laconia School Superintendent Steve Tucker.

The alleged retaliation against folks they believe wrote the anonymous letter complaining of a hostile workplace and cronyism.

Frankly, I’m surprised that Tucker kept it together as long as he did but I have been told, and have noticed, that he couldn’t carry this off by himself.

Aaron Hayward, currently the Associate Principal at the Belmont High School is not much better and, if I am to believe the little birdies tweeting in my ears, he’s a’hankering to move Districts. So he’s well up over his hair roots (long hair, short hair, take your pick) in this as well.

So, knowing that sometimes even smart people (not calling him smart, jus’ sayin’) can do stupid things at times, I just sent an RSA 91-A demand to the Shaker Regional School District School Board to get his emails over the last year. It’s not always possible to be perfect in possible malfeasances, so let’s see if we can find the exceptions on “being perfect”.

Pursuant to the Right to Know Law (RSA. 91-A:4 (I) ), I am demanding access, within 5 business days, to the below enumerated governmental records Otherwise, if this cannot be fulfilled within the mandated 5 business day window per RSA 91-A, please advise when the Responsive Records will be made available.

This requests the emails in any email account(s) assigned to Belmont High School Associate Principal Aaron Hayward, as a result of his employment at Belmont High School, during the time period of January 1, 2021, through end of day, May 6, 2022.

The information for each responsive record (i.e., email) shall include:

  • TO fields, FROM fields – all addresses
  • CC fields, BCC fields – all addresses
  • DATE fields
  • SUBJECT field
  • And the Body of the email itself.

Per RSA 91-A:4 IV(c) If you deny any portion of this request, please cite the specific exemption used to justify the denial to make each record, or part thereof, available for inspection along with a brief explanation of how the exemption applies to the information withheld.

As you are aware, in 2016, the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled that a governmental body in possession of records is required to produce them in electronic media using standard common file formats: Green v. SAU #55, 168 N.H. 796, 801 (2016). Unless there is some reason that it is not reasonably practicable for you to produce these records in the requested format, I ask that you either do so or explain why it is not practicable for you to comply.

Please also note, per RSA 91-A:4 III, III-a, and III-b, you are required to maintain the safety and accessibility of such responsive records. This also includes such responsive records (e.g., emails) which may have been deleted from respective In mailboxes/Sent mailboxes but are still available on the applicable email server or in your / email host’s backup system(s).

Please let me know when these records will be sent to me for inspection.

You may email the responsive records to me at If the volume turns out to be substantial, I have already set up a Dropbox folder for all of your responsive records to which they can be uploaded

Thank you for your lawful attention to this matter.


Skip Murphy

And in case anyone tips him off, I’ve already made it clear that the Law demands that all electronic records of a government entity MUST be held as long as any hardcopy ones they have in their possessions. Just don’t like to hear the lame excuse that “my dog ate the tape drive” schtick (or today’s version, I plugged the solid-state NAS drive into the 240V socket instead of the 120V) – judges will haul the IT folks to a certain spot in front of that high desk in that very special room.

The people and parents in Laconia are starting to wise up as to what is going on. Perhaps I’ll find some rotten tomatoes to pass on to them as they put Tucker and Hayward into the stocks.

And I’ll ask the question again: why isn’t the Laconia Daily Sun not abiding by The Journalist’s Maxim of “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable” on this story as well? At least from Gunstock, they might be comped a free day pass.  Here?  Not much that I can think of.

Sun-King Sununu Shows He’s Nowhere Near Ready For Primetime

Sun-King Sununu is a narcissist. And one of the current manifestations of his narcissism involves teasing a Presidential run in 2024. But as this WMUR clip shows, the Sun-King is nowhere near ready for primetime.

Any political team with any degree of competence would have anticipated Abortion-Ken a/k/a Adam Trump-Voters-Are-White-Supremacists Sexton asking “gotchas” about abortion.

But the Sun-King … who thinks he is the proverbial smartest man in the room and can talk his way out of anything … is left stammering and stuttering by Abortion-Ken.

The correct answer, Sun-King, would have been to refuse to answer such a vague hypothetical and tell Abortion-Ken he needs to give a specific example or examples if he wants an answer.

Just imagine what the national press would do to Sun-King.

Five More Reasons to Repeal the “Buffer Zone” Law in New Hampshire

Sun, 2022-05-08 00:00 +0000

If the buffer zone law were enforced at Planned Parenthood in Manchester the following encounters would have never happened. The high school student was driven to Planned Parenthood by her pastor.

The teenager said her father would kill her if he found out she was pregnant. After talking to us she decided to go with her pastor and talk to her father. Five months later her father invited her friends to a baby shower. Happy grandfather.

A 31-year-old woman left Planned Parenthood with offers of resources to continue her pregnancy. She said her husband told her to get an abortion. After several months her husband had a change of heart and he held one of the twins at the baptism

A mother and daughter arrived and as they walked into Planned Parenthood they heard the words “Pregnant? We will help you with whatever you need.” A while later they came out and approached the person who had spoken to them. The woman said she needed a place to live. Her mother’s boyfriend did not want her to live with them. We found her an apartment that she moved into that weekend. She has a beautiful daughter.

It was a bitterly cold morning and the teenager was wearing a borrowed coat that was too small. She came to talk to us but, we had to use a phone translator until a friend could leave work and come to speak with her. The friend helped the teenager through the pregnancy, finding her a place to live. Now the young mom and baby are part of the family.

We want to thank Catherine Kelley for this Op-Ed.
Please direct yours to

The couple arrived in an old car and slowly walked into Planned Parenthood. The man came out and talked to us. He said we have three kids and my wife doesn’t think we can afford another child. He did not want his child aborted and felt he had no other choice. We encouraged him to go back inside PP and talk to his wife. He said they won’t let me back in and her phone is off. We asked him to try. He did and he came out with his wife. He was all smiles. He said thank you and waved as they drove off.

These are some of the lives saved because good people exercised their right to peaceful assembly on a public sidewalk.

HB 1625 will repeal New Hampshire’s unconstitutional “buffer zone” law, which allows abortion clinics to ban people from engaging in speech or silent prayer on sidewalks outside of abortion clinics.

In 2016, just before he was first elected Governor, Sununu pledged in a letter to repeal the buffer zone law. Please reach out to the Governor to remind him of his promise to the pro-life citizens of New Hampshire and ask that he sign HB 1625.

The Governor can be reached at 603-271-2121 or 603-271-7676.

Sen. Tom Sherman’s ‘Amendment’ to the NH Ivermectin Bill is a Big Fat Lie

Sat, 2022-05-07 22:00 +0000

New Hampshire is about to become at least the second State in The Union to advance a bill into law that would allow residents access to Ivermectin without a prescription. Tennessee went there, South Dakota is working on it, and New Hampshire is close.

If there are others  (I believe there are), I missed them, and my apologies. But we’re here to revisit HB1022. I mentioned it yesterday. It passed the New Hampshire Senate, but before leaping that hurdle, it was amended. Sen Tom Sherman (Toolbag), who claims to be a doctor, insisted on adding this.


II-a. Any person who receives Ivermectin through a standing order shall sign an informed consent stating that there is no proven benefit to treating Covid-19 with Ivermectin.


I asked a prime sponsor of HB1022 for comment on the amendment. Rep. Jim Kofalt has this to say.


“I wonder if Senator Sherman might support the idea of adding a similar statement to the consent form for the various COVID-19 vaccines, acknowledging that there’s no evidence that the vaccines do anything whatsoever to prevent COVID-19.”


True dat, but what about Doc Sherman’s disclaimer? The gastroenterologist insists Ivermectin does nothing for COVID. Is it as full of you know what as his chosen “specialty”?

No Proven Benefit?

This professor doctor guy (Pierre Kory) – more of an expert than Gastro-Man – has shared a small library of evidence on both the efficacy of Ivermectin and the institutional war against it (start reading here).



Brazil: “…regular use of ivermectin as a prophylactic agent was associated with significantly reduced COVID-19 infection, hospitalization, and mortality rates.”

Meta-analysis of randomized trials of ivermectin to treat SARS-CoV-2 infection

Review of the Emerging Evidence Demonstrating the Efficacy of Ivermectin in the Prophylaxis and Treatment of COVID-19

Safety and Efficacy of the combined use of ivermectin, dexamethasone, enoxaparin, and aspirin against COVID-19

The FDA-approved drug ivermectin inhibits the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro


Dehli India (see also here)

Delhi, India COVID Delta after widespread Ivermectin use







The Entire African Continent with and without Ivermectin (hint, Ivermectin wins).




It is clear that ‘Doc’ Sherman gets his medical “research” from the New York or Los Angeles Times (and maybe even the DNC and the lying FDA), but when you look past the approved narrative and dig into the details, even the Together Trial proved the opposite of what it claimed.

So what?

Anyone with a genuine interest in public health would be professionally negligent for ignoring the possibility that an inexpensive, widely available, safe, off-patent, and well-tolerated affordable treatment like Ivermectin could improve outcomes.

It is a recognized wonder drug whose use worldwide has coincided with significant declines in COVID infections and deaths. It is undeniable, yet the Democrat Senator who wants to run for governor denies it, and the Republican Majority Senate goes along for the ride.

I’m happy it passed 14-10 but about that amendment.


II-a. Any person who receives Ivermectin through a standing order shall sign an informed consent stating that there is no proven benefit to treating Covid-19 with Ivermectin.


Even if only a fraction of what I’ve presented were only anecdotally correct, there is a proven benefit.

But here’s the rub. Even if the amendment isn’t miscarried from the bill (giving HB1022 one of those mRNA vaccines could do the trick), people should go with it. Get it into law. We can remove Tom’s useless lie next session when Tom isn’t in the State Senate.

Sherman is running for Governor, and despite our many disagreements with Chris Sununu, I doubt Sherman can beat him in any year – certainly not this mid-term.

And he won’t be missed, but he will be back (just like COVID for the double-jabbed and boostered).

Why is Sun-King Sununu’s Attorney-General Supporting Biden’s Ministry-of-Truth?

Sat, 2022-05-07 20:00 +0000

The attorneys-general of twenty States have demanded that Biden’s Ministry-0f-Truth be disbanded:

Twenty attorneys general are demanding that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas “immediately disband” the agency’s newly created Disinformation Governance Board and “cease all efforts to police Americans’ protected speech.”

In a letter dated May 5, they argue the board is unconstitutional, illegal and un-American. If Mayorkas doesn’t shut it down, the AGs say they will sue.

Missing from the list is Sun-King Sununu’s A-G:

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares led the coalition of attorneys general from Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.

It should come as no surprise that the Sun-King is tacitly supporting Biden’s Ministry of Truth. He oversaw … some have said orchestrated … the arrest of attendees at an Executive Council meeting for having the temerity to disagree with his regime.

Gunstock Area Commission – So Let’s See How Transparent Gary Kiedaisch Will Be about His Emails, Shall We?

Sat, 2022-05-07 18:00 +0000

It’s never the crime that’s the big deal – it’s always the coverup that’s the biggest problem and it looks like Gunstock Area Commissioner Gary Kiedaisch and former Commish Brian Gallagher are going to have a lot of explaining to do. 

Sidenote: and the “paper of record” in the Lakes Region, The Laconia Daily Sun, and the Salmon Press (with its weeklies scattered around the lake communities)?  Where have they been on all this?  They thought their puff pieces were sufficient as long as GMR kept buying those hefty sized ads in the Sun?

As you know, GraniteGrok was given access to the unredacted billings from the Devine-Millimet law firm as well as the preliminary report from PretiFlaherty law firm that the Code of Ethics that Kiedaisch was trying to foist on all the other Commissioners was null and void.

Being a Dillon’s Rule State, meaning that anything that a subdivision of the State wants to do MUST have a State Statute (NH RSA) authorizing/enabling that activity.  You know, the same Principle of Law I’ve been saying for the last two years about the Gilford School Board – show me the RSAs that allow you to nullify Freedom of Speech and lie to Parents.  For grins and giggles, find that report at the bottom of this post. It’s purpose, as many of these kinds docs are, are to show an “aspirational” face to the but are oft used by the politically nefarious to silence/muzzle/bench the “opposition” and make it harder to respond to bad things (or you’ll be accused of being uncollegial, selfish, out for themselves, not willing to “go along to get along” in addition to the other tropes that echos that old Beatles song “Under my thumb”.

However, the purpose of this post was to do another email demand of GAC related emails – those of Gary Kiedaisch.  It’s been clear that he decided that the GAC, and thus, Gunstock Mountain Resort, was going to be his plaything as if he was, yet again, the “Chair of the Board/CEO” of yet another entity, free do to what he wants. So I crafted yet another email Right To Know specifically tailored to him.

Why? I’ve been reading the past minutes of the GAC going back a few years.  I’ve now been to a few meetings of the GAC to observe him and his methodologies of action. I have listened to him go on about his background (quite a few times as he’s quite enamored with himself) to see how he sees himself in relation to others.  And now, in going through the unredacted billing records, seeing the racking up of tens of thousands of dollars going after anyone he sees is a threat to his Power,  his true petty (bordering on paranoia??) reveals itself (and yes, there are a few other observations that I’ll talk about in subsequent posts).

And he never thought he’d be found out.  Or Brian Gallagher, for that matter.

Sidenote: or maybe Brian did in finally realizing that his gig was up as he had turned into another “GAC seat squatter” like Rusty McLear when he sold his Belknap County home and didn’t resign immediate as he no longer fit the Commissioner requirement of being a “resident property owner in Belknap County”.

And Kiedaisch, unnecessarily, spent $600 of GMR money in what appears to a be a whining effort of “well, I HAVE to keep Brian on the GAC – I’m losing my Power Base!”

(click on it to embiggen)

OK, time to cut to the chase.  While I wrote the below BEFORE the special GAC Non-Public meeting (and handed out hardcopies to Commissioners Ness, Lambert, and Wood; Strang and Kiedaisch attended telephonically), after reading those billing records, it is going to be a pleasure to get his emails into my hands.  Most of the assertions I made above, I’m quite sure, will be substantiated.  It’s going to be quite a pleasure to read them.

Pursuant to the Right to Know Law (RSA. 91-A:4 (I) ), I am demanding access, within 5 business days, to the below enumerated governmental records Otherwise, if this cannot be fulfilled within the mandated 5 business day window per RSA 91-A, please advise when the Responsive Records will be made available.

This requests any and all emails from any email accounts belonging to Gunstock Area Commissioner Gary Kiedaisch during the time period of January 1, 2021 through to end of day, May 6, 2022:

  • Individual outbound/inbound emails to or from Commissioner Kiedasich to any Gunstock Mountain Resort (“GMR”, or associated GMR entities) employees as part of his official/political duties (as being a politically appointed Commissioner is inherently a political post) concerning the operations/planning/expansion/politics of GMR.
  • Individual outbound/inbound emails to or from Commissioner Kiedasich to any member of the Belknap County Delegation (i.e., the NH House Representatives representing Belknap County) as part of his official/political duties (as being a politically appointed Commissioner is inherently a political post) concerning how GMR may be affected by the NH House Bills or amendments to such bills.
  • Individual outbound/inbound emails to or from Commissioner Kiedasich to any member of the NH State Senate as part of his official/political duties (as being a politically appointed Commissioner is inherently a political post) concerning how GMR may be affected by the NH Senate Bills or amendments to such bills.

This demand has been phrased in this fashion as he has made clear his specific rejection of the use of an official account.

However, since he has, in the past, submitted such responsive requests from at least one personal email account, the precedent has been set for his compliance to such a Right To Know demand as this.

The information for each responsive record shall include:

  • TO fields, FROM fields – all addresses
  • CC fields, BCC fields – all addresses
  • DATE fields
  • SUBJECT field
  • And the Body of the email itself.

Per RSA 91-A:4 IV(c) If you deny any portion of this request, please cite the specific exemption used to justify the denial to make each record, or part thereof, available for inspection along with a brief explanation of how the exemption applies to the information withheld.

As you are aware, in 2016, the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled that a governmental body in possession of records is required to produce them in electronic media using standard common file formats: Green v. SAU #55, 168 N.H. 796, 801 (2016). Unless there is some reason that it is not reasonably practicable for you to produce these records in the requested format, I ask that you either do so or explain why it is not practicable for you to comply.

Please also note, per RSA 91-A:4 III, III-a, and III-b, you are required to maintain the safety and accessibility of such responsive records. This also includes such responsive records (e.g., emails) which may have been deleted from respective Inboxes but are still available on the applicable email server or in your / email host backup system(s).

Please let me know when these records will be sent to me for inspection.

You may email the responsive records to me at If the volume turns out to be substantial, I have already set up a Dropbox folder for all of your responsive records to which they can be uploaded

Thank you for your lawful attention to this matter.


Skip Murphy





And if he doesn’t, he sure will be willfully confirming the coverup, now, won’t he?  It’s what happens when hubris outweighs humbleness.

Either way, Belknap County residents will have a much better picture of who he really is (in addition to the pettiness already shown in the actions of unredacted billing records).

Presidential Fear Factor on Steroids

Sat, 2022-05-07 16:00 +0000

This orchestrated assault on the United States Supreme Court by the White House and mainstream media has gone into Level 1 Fear Factor. Though the leak was a draft and not the final opinion, It appears the Left is acknowledging that the reversal of Roe V. Wade is inevitable.

The next step for them is to promote protesting, destruction, propaganda, and fear. Fear is a powerful emotion, and since Democrats operate on feelings rather than facts, fear is the right tool for hapless leaders to use on ignorant followers.

If, and that is a big IF, the Left had actually read the leaked document, they would know that the overturning of Roe does not outlaw abortion but takes it out of the Federal Arena and puts it back on the states. It also states that this opinion is narrowly focused on abortion and does not extend to other social topics. If this opinion is finalized, as in its draft state, a woman will still be able to abort her unborn child with restrictions based on the term of the pregnancy. There will be states with more significant restrictions than others, but that exists now.

Let’s dig into some of the words, actions, and inactions of the President, media, and various people on the Left.

  1. The home addresses of the Conservative Justices have been published, and protestors have taken the liberty of infringing on the personal space of these jurists. These protests have been peaceful but instilled fear in the families and staff.
  2. The President and Jen Psaki refuse to condemn the act of doxing the justices or protesting near their homes.
  3. The White House will not condemn the leaker but states the info leaked was important enough to justify the action.
  4. The President uses his new term MAGA Radicals to define Republicans and label them as misinformers. 
  5. Hillary Clinton has gone to the media to claim that the rights of women, people of color, or people of alternative sexual orientation are all threatened by this out-of-control, power-hungry Supreme Court.
  6. The mainstream media is in sync with every message emanating from the White House.

I cannot express how strongly I feel this entire situation is a choreographed performance by the White House and the Democrat Party. This has been done to salvage some seats and minimize the damage they know is coming in November because of the poor performance of the Biden administration and the resulting record-low favorability ratings. They have created an October Surprise in May, knowing how volatile the Abortion issue is to Americans. They have stimulated their supporters who have been disappointed in the President and opened up the money spigots. They are raising money at a record pace. 

The safety of the Justices has to be a concern of all Americans. And the laissez-faire approach by the White House is disturbing and troubling but shows the opportunity this leak has offered the Left is more important than the safety of five Conservative Justices. That is sad and makes you question the humanity of the President and the Left.

Some Questions About Roe v. Wade For “Dr. Tom Sherman”

Sat, 2022-05-07 14:00 +0000

So … “Dr. Tom Sherman” posted this in response to Sun-King Sununu’s response to the leaking of a draft Supreme Court opinion overruling Roe v. Wade:

What Dr. Tom is actually saying is that he believes there should be NO restrictions on abortion, ever … that he supports abortion right up until birth … indeed, he may even support “post-birth abortion.”

So … some questions for “Dr. Tom”:

I understand that the Democrat Party is the party of angry women and emasculated men. Is championing the killing of defenseless eight and nine-month-old unborn babies to help you feel less emasculated?

Why do you think killing defenseless unborn eight and nine-month-old babies is “brave”?

How broad is the principle underlying the right to an abortion? For example, does this right allow the government to censor what you would consider “misinformation” about abortion?

Vermont Wants Department of Ed to Police School Mascots, Team Names, and Logos

Sat, 2022-05-07 12:00 +0000

When you know better, you just do, and failing to use that power is an injustice. It is your job to tell everyone else what everything is, or means, what they should do, and how to do it. Even what to say and not. And the more Democrats there are in your government, the more it thinks this way.

Vermont, conveniently to both my geographic and ideological left, is increasingly that. A place where freedoms are eroded by the abrasive politics of social justice and the mendacious gods of equity and inclusion.

Vermont is the East Coast’s California. Its liberals have that particular something—the urge to control everything not just because they should but because they can. And no object is too petty for pursuit.


The Vermont House gave preliminary approval on Thursday to a bill intended to ban racist and offensive school mascots, overriding objections that the legislation would erode school districts’ autonomy.

S.139 would direct the Vermont Agency of Education to create a state policy for school branding, including mascots, slogans, logos and sports teams, by August of this year.  … The bill directs the Agency of Education to create a process for people to file complaints to their local school board. School boards’ decisions could be appealed to the secretary of education, who would have the ultimate jurisdiction.


The bill directs the Vermont Department of Education to spend taxpayer dollars to tell taxpayers what is offensive. And like any proper despot, what is objectionable, obnoxious, obscene, or culturally odoriferous will be at their discretion and perfumed with the scent of more intrusive government – even if that offends you.

But policing “racist” school mascots will (inevitably) require additional staffing, resources, and room for mission creep.

They may even find that they need a department of the department to police the Department’s decisions on mascots and branding. Thought police to police the thought police. Don’t laugh. We have a Federal Ministry of Truth (still reeking of that New Department Smell) telling us there is no Ministry of truth.

Stringing words together that dare to question this is misinformation.

Vermont’s Ministry of Unoffensive Mascots (Slogans, Logos, or Team Names) is destined for a similar path. The false gods demand tribute, and its clerics will need something to do.

And if taxpayers find that offensive?

When you know better, you just do, and those who disagree or stand in the way of “progress” will find themselves on the wrong end of a swelling police-state mentality that can only end as an actual police state.

So, it’s not about mascots or team names at all. It is about the fundamental force behind the American Revolution. Leave us the hell alone; we’ll work it out ourselves. And opponents of the Ministry of Offensive Mascots make the same point. You are eroding local control. But they can’t stop, and they won’t. Failing to use abuse power is an injustice.

And they are destined to abuse it -deliberately or not – until only they have it.


S139 has already passed the Vermont State Senate.

Rep Sue Delemus Did the Right Thing: “You Are Killing Babies!”!

Sat, 2022-05-07 10:00 +0000

Since the 60s, those that would break traditional American norms, traditions, and relationships have been at it, small issue by small issue for decades. And there are too many Conservatives/Republicans that want to get into the Culture War that the Left has brought to us -and not the other way around.  

In sixty years, if we on the Right are truthful with ourselves, we just let them do it.  No, to be clear, not everyone gave up – but not enough stood up and pushed back.  That would be NH State Rep Sue DeLemus:

On Thursday morning, a few hundred supporters of abortion rights gathered in front of the State House to press lawmakers to act. The peaceful protest clearly angered one anti-abortion lawmaker — Rep. Susan DeLemus, R-Rochester, who was seen castigating the pro-abortion activists on a video that went viral.

“Shame on you, shame on you. Shame on all of you. You are killing babies. You are murderers, you are murderers,” DeLemus said.

Pro-choice – a Leftist euphemism for the killing of babies.  Note the other ways that they deflect from reality – fetus, a bunch of tissue, MY choice, Body autonomy, man having no say, and of course the stupidest one of all – The Handmaid’s Tale (as if it would come true). My response is (outside of incest and rape which are extremely rare in comparison to other pregnancies) – a lack of taking responsibility for one’s actions.  I don’t care if it was “I wasn’t planning on this”, “it will ruin my plans”, “I didn’t think I’d get pregnant”, or “the contraceptives failed”.

I’ll say it over and over again: if you have decided to engage in a physical act that can result in a new baby (NOT a “fetus” or any other Latin term for that developing baby you want to throw out; is still a baby), who is the innocent one in all this?  And you want to kill that innocent being?  Just to make yourself feel better?  Just to make life easier? Just to protect your “lifestyle”?

Sue (I’ve known her for many years) was right and she was very right in putting it in blunt and plain language – when you abort a baby, you are murdering an innocent human.

NH State Rep Carol McGuire – Your State House 04/29/22: Senate Bills Keep Grinding Away

Sat, 2022-05-07 02:00 +0000

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, & Pittsfield:

This week my committee heard our last two Senate bills, starting with SB 224, creating children’s environmental health day. Neither the sponsor nor any supporters showed up to testify in favor; we then proceeded to a non-germane amendment addressing reciprocity for electricians’ licenses. The constituent who still worked in Connecticut admitted that he actually had not applied for a license, but assumed he wouldn’t get one. Members of the board of electricians testified that Connecticut had very similar standards to New Hampshire and the exact same language regarding reciprocity. They thought he would be accepted by the board if he applied, because of his extensive experience, and at worst would need to take a test confirming his knowledge. After that hearing, we voted to kill SB 224 and not take up the amendment.

We also heard SB 450, a housekeeping bill on the Prescription Drug Affordability Board. AARP and others came out in favor of what they hoped the bill would do (lower drug costs for their members) not caring that the board was investigative and intended to clarify drug pricing for government purchases. We voted, 10-9, to send it to interim study with HB 1566, which also addresses this board.

We want to thank NH State Rep Carol McGuire for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to

We discussed SB 330, amending it to include funding as a topic for the study committee, creating an OPLC oversight committee modeled on the existing HHS oversight committee, and deleting all references to the Boxing and Wrestling Commission. As amended, we recommended the bill 19-0. SB 357, mental health training for first responders, had the promised amendment to include dispatchers in the training, and a clear exemption for existing officers, and then passed unanimously.

SB 383, land surveying, had an amendment developed by the subcommittee, which clarified the non-resident licensing (and put it in the correct statute) and deleted the authority to investigate and punish non-licensed surveyors, which was not acceptable to the committee. It, too, passed unanimously. SB 277, on emergency and temporary licenses, had a subcommittee amendment as well – but some members objected to the exemption from continuing education. We revised the amendment and recommended it, again unanimously.

SB 282, on acupuncture licensing, had an updated amendment that addressed HB 1192, the similar bill we passed earlier. HB 1192 passed the Senate, so SB 282 only makes a few further language changes and a note that it passes after HB 1192. SB 358, eczema awareness month, was debated over my non-germane amendment to revise the administrative rules process. It passed, 14-5, with the opposition opposed to any changes to the process – since it’s working so well, of course!

SB 226, a recruitment program for state employees, was unanimously recommended to pass.

SB 397, which consisted of two interstate compacts, one on mental health counseling and the other on the placement of children, had an extensive debate. An amendment, based on the subcommittee work, deleted the placement compact (which was the 2009 revision to a 1960s vintage compact New Hampshire has been in for decades) and added some specific language about placement with parents, across state lines. (This was a result of some of the miscues in the Harmony Montgomery Your State House Page 1 of 2 April 29, 2022 case, and was an urgent priority for the governor and most of the committee on children and family, which worked on this with us.) The updated compact would not likely be finalized soon – it requires 35 states to adopt it before it’s effective, and only a dozen (? not sure – we got different numbers from different members, but it didn’t seem to matter since it was well below 35) or so have joined up so far. This amendment passed 10-9 (party line); a subsequent amendment to delete the mental health compact was debated and failed, 6-13. I supported the deletion since I have long considered compacts to be unconstitutional: they all declare that their rules have the force of law in all member states, but the New Hampshire constitution forbids any laws not voted on by the people or their elected representatives. An ought to pass motion with only the first amendment failed, 8-11. I decided to let this sit for a while and went on.

SB 382, requiring telehealth providers to have a New Hampshire license, had an extended debate. The supporters of the bill thought that it was implied by current law (in particular, the physician’s compact, which defines that treatment takes place at the location of the patient, not the doctor.) The opponents wanted people to be able to see any provider they wanted, wherever the provider was, and thought that many would not want to bother getting an NH license. I could see both sides, but realized that this only mattered if there were a problem: a happy patient would never care! A motion to kill the bill failed, 9-10; after more debate, we voted to pass it, 13-6. I had supported killing the bill (it seemed everything was OK at present) but voted to pass it so that the law was clear as to what state’s laws applied to telehealth operations.

SB 274, prohibiting project labor agreements, was killed, 12-7, with three Republicans joining all Democrats in opposition. After a break, we unanimously reconsidered our last motion on SB 397, ought to pass with only the mental health compact. The second vote came out 16-3, with the Democrats realizing the children’s compact was never going to pass the committee, and getting the mental health compact was a higher priority.

The redistricting committee met on SB 200, which is now the congressional district map. The minority presented their previous map (current districts with Hampton switched from CD1 to CD2.) This was criticized as splitting economic communities and counties, and even as not being the “least changed” as they could have moved a few towns in the North Country and resulted in a lesser deviation between the districts. It failed, 7-8. The Republican mapmaker presented a new map, concentrating CD1 in the I-93 corridor, which had several advantages: population deviation of 5 people, only two counties split, and all economic communities kept together (except ones already split by county lines.) The political competitiveness was excellent, as in 2020 the Republicans would have won by 50.5%. Can’t get much tighter than that! The Democrats criticized it as moving too many communities from one district to another, and not being “competitive.” After some discussion, this map passed, 8-7 (all votes in this committee are on party lines.)

Things Fall Apart 2

Sat, 2022-05-07 00:00 +0000

In my recent essay Things Fall Apart… I commented about how the very fundamentals of our nation (US) and Western Civilization seem to be developing fractures that will lead to the whole thing falling down.

The goal is clear, IMHO: total global collapse and depopulation.  Just look at Tucker Carlson’s take on what’s happening in America today.



After all, paradise must be built.  The foundation must be laid.  No matter the human cost of prior attempts.  No matter the cost now.




This is why I truly believe we are in a religious war.  No sane person, IMHO, could ignore the enormous toll prior attempts at world communism have taken, and still double-down trying it again unless this were their FAITH.



You may not easily believe this based on my doom and gloom essays of late, but generally I’m a very happy and optimistic person.  Yes, I’m cautious and do tend to err on the side of caution and safety – Engineer! – but overall I always look for and see the silver linings in even the darkest clouds.  And I delight in the small moments when I feel Hashem’s presence.  Take yesterday morning: taking my wife’s travel cup of tea, lunch, and laptop to her car while she was getting dressed for work I stepped outside to a cool & crisp morning and took utter delight in the sun rising, dew glistening on the grass, my kids’ trees standing tall waking up after the winter, and a rooster crowing in the distance.  A marvelous moment worthy of pure joy in His kindness having my see that.

Yet I feel, in the pit of my stomach, that I’m watching the Gates of Hell starting to crack open prior to the loosing of all it’s infernal fury:

USA / NATO gearing up for counterattack against Russian forces in July or August, with high risk of escalated retaliatory strikes by Russia using EMP or nuclear weapons – DC Clothesline

And this kind of talk?  Openly discussing nuclear attacks?


And if this isn’t casus belli (if true; I’ve heard disputations of this) I’m not sure what is:

U.S. intel helped Ukraine sink Russian flagship Moskva, officials say (

Let alone having Ukraine field-test our new weapons against Russia, emptying our own weapons stores to supply them.  And don’t get me started on draining our strategic petroleum reserve.  Or this: US Targeting Russian Generals.



As I’ve written before, IMHO WWI was stumbled into.  Not so now.  There are serious people bent on massive depopulation, see here and here.  They want a global massacre.  Whether from disease, The Jab, war, engineered food shortages, whatever, the stage is being set for a calamity on a scale humanity has not seen before.  Well, at least since about 70,000 B.C (links in the original):

[O]nce in our history, the world-wide population of human beings skidded so sharply we were down to roughly a thousand reproductive adults. One study says we hit as low as 40 [breeding pairs].

On my old blog I had an essay about the Climate Cultists who truly believe that humanity’s emissions of CO2 is a threat to all life on earth.  Let me repeat that.  People believe that CO2, a gas essential for plant metabolism and life, is a biosphere-level threat whose emissions must be stopped and that gas actively removed from the atmosphere.


(Buy the mug!)


Now, as I wrote in that essay, ask yourself this question and seriously think about the answer:

Imagine you truly believed – believed to the pit of your soul – that humanity’s massive presence on earth was a threat to all life on earth (I’m not disputing that mankind isn’t being destructive).  Let me repeat: you absolutely believe the current human population on earth is a threat to ALL. LIFE. ON. EARTH.  All of it.  From whales to dragonflies to orchids, even to this hideous creature.



If you truly believed this, what would you NOT DO to prevent the end of all life?  Certainly you’d work, with every fiber of your being, to ameliorate that threat.  Right?  And what’s the simplest solution to that?  Not “green energy” but reducing the world’s population.  Drastically.  And quickly.

WWIII would certainly do that.



In an excellent book The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes – and Why there is one scene – and I’m going from memory so please forgive any deviations from the actual account – that perfectly captures fatal-level denial.  There was a flight going to Miami from, IIRC, New York and the plane crashed.  The flight crew worked quickly to get the passengers out even as flames were spreading through the whole cabin.  But one man, reading his newspaper, refused to leave.  Pleading with him the stewardess tried to get him to move, stating that the plane had crashed and was on fire.  The man, reading his paper, replied that it was all nonsense.  The plane was fine and he looked forward to arriving in Miami in a few hours.  She abandoned him to save herself and he burned alive rather than admit his reality was now a threat.

I feel the same thing watching so many persons in my life now.  My accountant who has long term plans for my money – bless him – but cannot fathom anything truly dark coming; he’s done an excellent job with my money but I fear his inability to see what’s coming is now a threat to my largest financial holding (if Wall Street gets flash-fried – like these shrimp (cute video from Japan) – there goes all my money).  My wife, whose family suffered during the break-up of the USSR and whose people were murdered by Stalin in a parallel starvation to the Holodomor (one out of every three ethnic Kazakhs died), denies the need for preps and having firearms and laments the money I’ve “wasted” in purchasing them – ironically she went rifling through the stockpile trying to find raisins and cashews for her snacks and was disappointed that we didn’t have raisins available on hand… dissonance anyone?  My sister who still prods me to get The Jab despite our all having had Covid and, thus, already have the gold-standard of immunity.  My Holocaust-era cousin who, notwithstanding my pleas for her to put even a couple of weeks of food and water aside, states that “That can’t happen in America” and that she can always pop by the store if she needs anything.  My high school best friend, still a close friend, who thinks that maybe he should get a crossbow to threaten people who come to his doorstep if society collapses.  A f*cking crossbow.   Against a mob on his doorstep in a SHTF situation.

And on.  And on.  And on.

War drums beating with people – seemingly – eager to push-push-push America and Russia into direct confrontation.  Step by step brinkmanship.  Even with no intent on the part of the leadership (certainly I don’t think Putin wants a nuclear war, I’m not so sure about President Potato the real powers), I tremble thinking that a careless slip or misinterpretation of an action could be the spark, let alone a deliberate false flag event; remember that multiple US pols have said we would have to “respond in kind” if WMDs are used in Ukraine.  We have massive heat, we have an abundance of (figurative) fuel and oxygen… all that’s needed is ignition.  Accidental or intentional, the end result will be the same.

Someone sent me this proverb (purportedly from Africa).  It’s accurate.

When elephants fight, ants get crushed.

Prep.  Plan.  Pray.  And find your inner steel.  I very much fear you will need it, soon.  For the elephants are being herded into the arena for combat…



Hashem help us all.  And let us pray that if their plans come to fruition, there are enough people of our mindset to rebuild.  Give me Independence Hall 1776 (formatting edited from the original):

Just as the Rabbi said [to the Roman army commander] “Just give me Yavne” to save Judaism in the face of the inevitable & unstoppable Roman conquest, I say Just give me Independence Hall 1776 to save America and, more broadly, the West.  Give me people filled with the brushfire of liberty in their minds and a burning heart yearning for freedom, putting the Individual above The State, and all tempered with morality and responsibility.

And while I’ll still weep, and while I’ll still fight hoping to avert the collapse, I know that with people like this we will preserve the seed corn of liberty, and rebuild.

Friday Open Thread – We’re All Targets of Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board

Fri, 2022-05-06 23:15 +0000

I’m betting that we are all under surveillance by this chick (picked by Dept. of Homeland Security Mayorkas), Nina Jankowicz, to be the head of the US KGB DGB.  You just can’t make this stuff up!  What on earth will the Babylon Bee have to do when their satire becomes real life????

So, talk to her!  Talk amongst yourselves!  Yell at me if you want for bringing thus up!  After all, like always, this is your thread!

Gunstock Area Commission – Non-Public Meeting, Released Billings, a Released Report, and a GAC approved Resolution AGAINST Guida/Lang/Kiedaisch spawned HB1397

Fri, 2022-05-06 22:50 +0000

Quick reference – HB1397 now turns RSA 399, in how the Gunstock Area Commission is constituted, governs, and completely severs its present accountability.  It makes it a playground for the monied “controllers”  as there will never be another “ordinary Jane or Joe” because of the $20,000 – $30,000 cost to run a county-wide election for an office that gives you a free ski-pass and $25 a meeting. Really elitist of you, NH State Senator Bob Guida (deigns to not wanting to speak with mere Representatives), NH Representative Tim Lang (aspirations of replacing Guida bankrolled by Kiedaisch/McLear/Belknap County Landscaping founder Hayden McLaughlin monies?), and Gunstock Area Commissioner Gary Kiedaisch (who has repeatedly that only people like him and his commercial/professional accomplishments should be on the Commission).  Just an ordinary guy without money and connections?


You’ll see in the video that Kiedaisch, calling in from California, refuses to make his intentions rather public and abstains from the resolution that outlines that the Gunstock Area Commission, by a vote of 4-0-1 are against the amended HB1397 that was turned from a simple bill to extend Rockingham County elected terms from 2 to 4 years to one that totally turns upside down how the Gunstock Area Commission.

You’ll also hear how hard Kiedaisch worked against Lambert’s insistence on adding a couple of late additions to the agenda – until Lambert read him the same part of the ByLaws that I have heard Kiedaisch use for his own agenda:

So, here is that “pre-Non-Public Meeting” Public Meeting:

And I walked out and sat in the car waiting for the non-public meeting to end.  And it finally did and they went back into Public Meeting:

I have to apologize for this last one – the DJI OM 5 gimbal swapped position (it said that the phone was unbalanced) from landscape to portrait but the camera recording stayed landscape.  I’m also looking into enhancing the audio acquisition for the next time that I think that a con-call speaker will be used and I will be several feet away from it.

The released records!  One of the bones of contentions in this “GAC situation that could happen in your town, too”) was the release of the redacted billing records that that it seems (quick glance – further research is greatly needed) that Commissioners Gallagher (former, in Gallagher) and Kiedaisch seemed to use as their personal lawyers to further, not the GAC’s needs but their own political agendas.

FDA Bans J & J Jab over Blood-Clot Concerns Unless You Won’t Take Any Other … Then it’s OK!

Fri, 2022-05-06 22:00 +0000

Remember that time at COVID camp when some “kids” said they saw a lot of blood clots in dead COVID vaccine recipients. The “camp counselors” said it was a conspiracy theory. Well, guess what? The FDA just dropped the hammer on the J&J Jab ‘cuz “thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome.”

That’s blood clots to you and me, and it’s officially a thing we can add to the list of items branded false that turned out to be true. And that’s nice, but how many people have or will die because we shared the truth and they denied it?

Lots and Lots with Clots

It has been and is a thing in the age of COVID Public Health policy. Clotting. even has a report on the COVID vaccine clotting, “Vaccine-induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia.”


  • Definitive Diagnosis (must meet all five criteria):
  • COVID vaccine 4 to 42 days prior to symptom onset#
  • Any venous or arterial thrombosis (often cerebral or abdominal)
  • Thrombocytopenia (platelet count < 150 x 109/L)*
  • Positive PF4 “HIT” (heparin-induced thrombocytopenia) ELISA
  • Markedly elevated D-dimer (> 4 times upper limit of normal)


Like a good little Medical Industrial Complex soldier, they hedge their bet with Incidence is extremely low. Risk of death and serious outcomes of COVID-19, including thrombosis, far outweigh risk of VITT possibly associated with highly efficacious vaccines.”

I guess they don’t read the FDA doc dumps either.

We know that this is not true on any terms. COVID is far less dangerous than this crap sandwich rolled out on a rickey cart with a wobbly wheel.

In Denmark, they determined that there was no benefit to the COVID vaccine, and in the UK, government data proves that getting it was worse than not getting it.

In New Zealand, where they locked down the island and jabbed nearly everyone with a heartbeat (90% uptake), all-cause mortality has spiked, while in nations like Niger, where almost no one got jabbed, they’ve got no cases of which to speak. Omicron is present but inconsequential in Niger, but in the land of COVID Zeal, people are dropping dead in record numbers. All vaccinated at least twice.

Clotting is not a fiction of the vast right-wing conspiracy or its alt-media allies. The Astra-Zeneca COVID vax got nixed in several nations early on for clotting.

Clots have been reported since the early days of COVID vaccine distribution in cadavers by a small army of morticians and pathologists. All to mud-flinging, boos, and catcalls from so-called public health experts at every level of government.

Add to that the goggle-wearing, Prius-Driving, triple-masked COVID-Karens with face shields. The Sky is falling! And that clotting stuff is just a fairy tale.

Enter the FDA, a politicized agency with a proven stake in hiding facts about dangerous and unnecessary Pharmaceutical interventions and a magic fairy wand. They’ve announced that the J&J vaccine’s Emergency Use Authorization has new restrictions.


The FDA said in a statement that the change is being made because of the risk of a rare and dangerous clotting condition called thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) after receiving the vaccine.


Stop being such a “flirt.” What you mean is “Vaccine-induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia.” Jab induced Blood clotting. A dangerous (but rare) condition, like abortion.

So, no J&J for you unless it’s the only Jab they can convince you to take.


The US Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday that it is limiting the emergency use authorization of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen Covid-19 vaccine to people 18 and older for whom other vaccines aren’t appropriate or accessible and those who opt for J&J because they wouldn’t otherwise get vaccinated.


Remember when people had to stop working, couldn’t open their business, or go to church. No visiting loved ones on their death beds. Public health and all that. And think about all the oil that was diverted (without a peep from the Enviro-wackos) into making meaningless plexiglass “barriers” to trick the same virus the same experts said couldn’t find you once you were seated at a restaurant.

They were so serious that refusing to get a vaccine that appeared more dangerous than beneficial was a crime against humanity. It turns out that the vaccine is a crime against humanity.

And the FDA now says one of them could be deadly, and they won’t let you have it… unless you would not risk any of the others – then go ahead.

It’s not safe or effective, but don’t let that stop you.
