Martin For US Senate - News Conference demands Jennifer Horn resign as GOP Chairman!

Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin demands that Jennifer Horn resign as Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party

 

Andy says the IRS effectively “controls” Horn as long as the federal government has a lien on Horn’s property.

 

“Horn should make full disclosure of any and all of her agreements, files, and correspondence with the IRS,” Andy says. “New Hampshire Republicans undermine public respect for the party when they allow a tax cheat to serve as their leader”

 

Andy says Horn is effectively a “white collar criminal”

 

Andy says “I am not usually one for conspiracy theories, but Horn has been defending Obama for years. I wonder why?”

 

Andy is starting to alert presidential candidates to be aware of and beware of Horn’s IRS lien problems. “A picture of Horn with a candidate could prove very embarrassing,” Andy says

 

Andy charges that Horn is also making a mockery of the GOP’s by-laws, by openly supporting Scott Brown, who is known in Washington as “Barack Obama’s favorite Republican senator”

 

(Manchester, NH) (July 28, 2014) 

 

Dear Republican:

 

A “fiduciary” is a person who holds a position of trust. Republican Party officials are fiduciaries. They are supposed to administer the party and enforce/obey the by-laws faithfully and impartially.

 

Thursday afternoon I will be in Keene to hold a news conference demanding that Jennifer Horn resign as head of the New Hampshire Republican Party. There are two independent reasons why Horn is unfit to lead our party.

 

First, for the past six (6!) years Horn and her husband have apparently failed to pay their IRS taxes. Now Horn may try to make excuses for her failure to pay taxes. But the reality is I know why she didn't pay them. Horn diverted IRS funds into her own political campaigns. Diversion of federal taxes to personal use makes Horn a white collar criminal.

 

Horn refuses to get a paying job to pay her taxes. Instead she works for “free” as unpaid chairman of the party. Or is she diverting money, again?

 

I am not much for conspiracy theories but here is a conspiracy theory for you to chew on. Horn owes the IRS money. As we know from the IRS “tea party” scandals, the IRS has become very political under Obama. The IRS can civilly or criminally prosecute you or enforce a lien. You’ve probably seen the ads on TV by people who advertise they can help you deal with the awesome power of the IRS. So the reality is that Horn is at the mercy of Obama’s IRS as long as she owes the IRS back taxes.

 

Does Horn have a “deal” with the IRS to make payments? We don’t know. All we know is that the federal government still claims unpaid taxes from Horn. Taxes she diverted to personal purposes.

 

Do we really want to have a tax cheat at the head of our party? Is this the best New Hampshire Republicans can do?

 

The second reason why Horn must be removed is that Horn does not think the party’s by-laws apply to her. Her abuses of her position as chairman have damaged and will continue to damage the party. She has refused to act with the total impartiality required by the by-law of the NHGOP. Both Jim Rubens and Bob Smith have complained in their own ways about Horn’s lack of impartiality in the primary.

 

I am going to be alerting presidential candidates to Horn’s tax problems. Candidates should be aware and beware that a photo of tax refusenik Horn could embarrass any candidate.

 

Are you ready for the frosting on the “conspiracy cake?” Not only does Horn attack critics of Obama, such as myself. She is trying to nominate Barack Obama’s “favorite Republican senator” as our candidate from New Hampshire. Why is she so intent on nominating Brown, someone who voted for Obama over 60% of time? Why is Horn so insistent on defending Obama and attacking people who tell the truth about Obama? Could the lien on her house be a factor? You be the judge.

 

I have saved a little nugget from the past. Horn went on a local radio show and attacked me for being the author of a highly respected book on Obama. She owed the IRS taxes at the time. Listen to Horn. The radio clip is attached.

 

Maybe my “conspiracy theory” about Horn’s support for Obama isn’t a theory at all. Maybe it’s just the plain truth.

 

The truth about Horn very uncomfortable. But facts are stubborn things. If Horn disagrees with my facts, I invite her to make a full public disclosure of her relationship with the IRS. If Horn remains silent, under the common law’s “adverse inference rule” silence can be taken as an admission of guilt.

 

Let’s see how Horn responds to my request for her resignation. With facts? Or with silence?

 

Loyally,

 

Andy

Macdonald For NH Senate (D21) - NH State Senate Candidate censored!

The newspapers believe for the good of the public my words should be censor.  The reason that I am running for public office and what my goals are to better NH if I get elected the editors believe the voters should not hear.  I am a 100% disabled US Military Veteran and I am running for NH State Senate. 

            My wife and I purchased 11 acres of land at 101 Stepping Stone Rd Lee NH and gave it to a Veteran non-profit to build a church and cabins in the woods for homeless US Military Combat Veterans to with the help of God and man try to come home mentally as well as physically if at all possible.  A prominent Lee Town official told me “we are a community of professors and UNH support staff and we do not deserve homeless living in our neighborhoods”.  The Lee Town just took the Veteran Resort-Chapel to court because we have a portable toilet that the town made us rent if we wanted a building permit.  We have a sign not attached to anything on our front yard Identifying the sight as the Veteran Chapel.  The VRC has a camper parked behind the chapel as the town tells us no business in Lee can have a trailer on their property.  The final item they took us to court on is a volunteer church member sleeps in the trailer several nights a week in June and the first week of July to keep an eye on the Veteran living in the house.   This oncehomeless Veteran from toxic drinking water (at USMC Camp Lejuine NC) brain is being eating away.  For his safety this volunteer stayed there just until we knew he was ok.  This is a frivolous court action that we are waiting for a judge to rule.  These are the subjects that the newspapers are censoring from the Voters.  

            I am running for NH State Senate do we the voters have a right to hear what each candidate will do if they get elected?  Do the Voters have a right to be informed about the candidates with out editors censoring in the name of public safety.   I am nobody that came back with four disabilities, three being combat related.  I honestly believe that I should not have come back alive.   I am hear and I believe every newspaper in the State of New Hampshire should run this letter because it is a prime reason US Military Combat Veterans become homeless.  Prominent citizens believe we are a danger and for public safety we should be ignored and kept out of their neighborhoods. 

            I am a candidate for elected NH position should every news media tell the world what NH is doing to disabled US Military Veterans.  I was homeless my first few years back.  It is extremely difficult to navigate the government maze to attempt to live a normal life after surviving the mayhem of war.

Wheeler For Executive Council (EC5) - Hattamer’s Donors: 98% doctors, half of them out-of-state 

Executive Council District 5 candidate Dave Wheeler noted that 98% of the donors supporting his opponent are doctors and other medical personnel. “The amazing thing here,” Wheeler noted, “is that my opponent’s conflict of interests would keep him from voting on medical issues in the Executive Council. I wonder if his big donors know this.”

Wheeler pointed out that his opponent, Steve Hattamer, has some significant tension regarding his professional activities that would severely constrain his ability to vote on medical issues, such as Obamacare, as well as Medicaid and Medicare. “My opponent sits on the board of a number of medical and insurance associations, and these represent a serious conflict of interest.” Wheeler went on to stress that “these conflicts will compel my opponent to stand on the sidelines during key Council votes. I doubt very seriously that he ever informed his donors that he has such conflicts, and that he would be unable to provide them any backing for their agendas.”

Wheeler asserted that his opponent’s fundraising strongly suggests that a group of out-of-state medical professionals were attempting to buy the Council seat. “For all intents and purposes, my opponent’s campaign is meaningless for District Five constituents, because he will be unable to provide representation on the critical healthcare issues that lie ahead.” Wheeler also added, that “I don’t know what these doctors are going to get, because my opponent can’t vote on their issues.”

VIRTUAL CURRENCY REGULATION

The Impending BitLicense and Premature Regulations

Last month, the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) announced its proposed regulations for businesses engaged in “Virtual Currency Business Activity.

 

A prematurely designed set of draconian rules could force Bitcoin businesses to leave New York for good, shutting out a burgeoning industry before it has a chance to develop—and leaving New York behind the rest of the market. > Read more

ONLINE GAMBLING - MICHELLE MINTON

Newsweek’s Cover Story on Internet Gambling Plays Fast and Loose with Facts

Newsweek’s recent cover article
 on online gambling, “How Washington Opened the Floodgates to Online Poker, Dealing Parents a Bad Hand,” by Leah McGrath Goodman, has elicited a wide range of deservedly negative responses. The title alone indicates its blatant bias.

However, Goodman’s one-sided article presents a good opportunity to dispel many of the falsehoods and unwarranted fears swirling around the online gambling discussion.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION - HANS BADER

 

Duplicative New Affirmative-Action Rule Drives Up Taxpayer Costs and Restricts Competition


Does it make sense to require a park campground operator that has a few hundred employees at 120 different locations to come up with 120 separate affirmative-action plans, one for each site? Just because it also receives a measly $52,000 federal contract to clean bathrooms used by tourists (which it does very cheaply, at cost, in order to make its nearby concessions more attractive)?


To any economist, the answer would be “no.” But to the Obama administration, the answer is “yes.” > Read more
