Conservative HQ - Still Time to Save America From Becoming one Big Chicago

Richard Viguerie on Rod Blagojevich:

 

"There's still time to save America from becoming one big Chicago"

 

The corruption uncovered in the investigation of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is just a tiny part of the criminality that runs throughout the country's politics, Richard A. Viguerie, the Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, said.

 

"Before we turn over the car companies, the financial sector, the health care system, and much of the rest of the American economy over to these guys, we need to realize: We are opening doors to a level of corruption like we have never seen before," he said.

NH DHHS - New Hampshire Receives Perfect Score on Public Health Preparedness

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announces that the nonprofit organization Trust for America’s Health issued its annual report today entitled, “Ready or Not? Protecting the Public’s Health from Diseases, Disasters, and Bioterrorism” and New Hampshire received a perfect 10. The report ranks all 50 states and Washington, DC, on public health preparedness improvements made since 9/11 on ten preparedness criteria, which change from year to year. New Hampshire received a score of ten out of ten, for the first time, along with only four other states.

 

“We are pleased with the progress we have made,” said DHHS Commissioner Nicholas A. Toumpas, “but we also realize this is no reason to sit back and relax. There is still much more planning, preparedness, and collaboration work to be done to be prepared for a large-scale public health emergency.”

 

Five of the criteria are repeated from last year, including: a plan for distribution of the strategic national stockpile, the purchase of a state cache of anti-virals, National Electronic Disease Surveillance System Compliance, emergency volunteer liability protection, and a commitment to public health funding. The five new criteria include: public health lab ability to receive specimens 24/7, public health lab capacity to diagnose a flu pandemic, liability protection for agencies that offer facilities or recruit volunteers, an identified Medical Reserve Corps coordinator, and food borne outbreak detection and diagnosis proficiency.

 

“Through a great deal of hard work on the part of our agency and our partners,” said Dr. José Montero, Director of Public Health for DHHS, “we have improved the public health and emergency preparedness in New Hampshire, but it was definitely a team effort. But, this report is and should also be viewed as a compositve of preparedness activities and planning across agencies, a snapshot if you will, and by no means indicates that the work is done. Our prepardness and response activities are continual.”

NH GOP - VOTER REGISTRATION NUMBERS A WAKE UP CALL

CONCORD – Fergus Cullen, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party, made the following statement today:

 

“News that Democrats have overtaken Republicans in voter registration should be a wake up call for all Republicans, especially those who are bad at math,” said Fergus Cullen, chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party.”

 

“In order to win elections, Republicans need to broaden our message to include a broader set of issues. We need to talk about education, health care, and conservation, issues that are a higher priority to the independent voters who decide elections in our state. We can’t just be talking about taxes and social issues that appeal mostly to our base.”

 

“I am not saying that Republicans need to moderate our positions or move to the middle. We can and should continue to advocate conservative alternatives and free-market approaches on these issues that contrast to the Democrats’ big government philosophy. But if we want to win again, we need to talk about a broader range of issues.”

 

“Talk of Republicans becoming a permanent minority is grossly premature and not supported by the facts. The Republican Party today is no more dead than the Democrats were after their huge defeats as recent as 2002. They came back, and so will we.”
