NEW DNC VIDEO: Why we need to make our 45th President a Democrat


At Tuesday’s first Democratic debate, Americans (15.8 million, in fact) got to hear our presidential candidates talk about their vision to move America forward and to strengthen the middle class. They had a substantive conversation about important issues like equal pay, immigration reform, college affordability, and climate change. And in so doing, they made clear that they’re ready to lead this country.


This, of course, is in stark contrast with the Republicans running for president, all of whom have failed to propose any ideas other than recycling disastrous policies that would drag America backwards during their nearly ten hours of debates.

Take a look at our new DNC video that highlights this difference, given how many issues were either entirely ignored or not seriously dealt with at Republican debates, and why we need to make our 45th President a Democrat:



P.S. And if you missed the Democratic debate the first time, you can watch it again on CNN tonight at 10 pm ET!

Shaheen legacy is one of broken promises

By Jennifer Horn

Nashua Telegraph



On November 4, 2008, then Sen.-elect Jeanne Shaheen stood before a crowd of supporters and outlined her upcoming tenure as U.S. Senator. She promised to be a strong, independent voice for New Hampshire, and she promised that she would not hesitate to disagree with her party or her President to do what's right for the Granite State.  She promised to get our economy back on track by restoring fiscal responsibility to our nation while creating good jobs and getting Washington to work for the middle class.  She pledged to work to implement foreign policy that would improve America's standing in the world, focused on the real threat of terrorism, and to free our nation from foreign energy sources.  She promised to expand affordable healthcare coverage, and to fight for people facing premiums they couldn't afford.  She promised to stand up to special interest groups, like pharmaceutical and insurance companies.  Finally, she promised to listen to the people of New Hampshire. She promised that her office door would always be open to the people of our state.


As Sen. Shaheen campaigns for re-election nearly six years later, one thing is certain - she has broken every promise she made on election night.  She has failed to live up to her word, in every sense. She has not kept any of her promises. Not one.




There is no doubt that Sen. Shaheen will campaign between now and November on falsehoods about her record and new promises that are sure to be broken if re-elected. Enough is enough. It's time for her to answer for her failures. It's time to hold her accountable for all the promises she has broken. It's time to replace her with a responsible Republican this fall.


Jennifer Horn is the Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee.


ALG's Daily Grind - Obama's promise to veterans 


May 27, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds granted.

Obama's promise to veterans
If only President Obama had taken his promises seriously and acted on the Inspector General report detailing problems within the Veterans' Association (VA) Health System that was published just prior to his inauguration in 2009. He didn't.

Cartoon: "Briefing Room"

Slideshow — Every scandal Obama found out about on TV
All of the White House's claimed ignorance leaves the American people ignorant of one important thing: who exactly is in charge of the executive branch of the United States government?

Your Technology Is Powered by Coal. Get Over It
You do not have to have an opinion on global warming, or coal itself, to see a logic problem with the posture of eschewing companies that produce coal, but supporting companies that use lots of it


Lambert For Congress - It's Time for Accountabilty  


Dear Friend,

As I travel the 2nd district, I often get asked, "When is something going to be done about the IRS"s illegal targeting of conservative groups?"

Since the corruption and political targeting at the IRS were exposed nearly one year ago, no arrests have been made and too few resignations have been turned in. No one has been held accountable.

Until last night....

Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to hold Senior IRS Official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for her refusal to answer questions about illegal targeting of conservative groups and individuals.

I fully support the House's actions to hold Lois Lerner in contempt. Her actions, along with those of numerous Obama administration officials, were criminal. We must have answers as to how this happened, who was involved, and how can we ensure this never happens again.

We need change in Washington, and we need it now.

Please visit and donate $10, $20, or $50 dollars and help send me to Congress so I can add my voice and vote for the pursuit of the truth.

Candidate for United States Congress

If elected, I will vote to defend law-abiding citizens’ right to own and use firearms for protection of self and family and for all other lawful purposes. While serving in the state senate, I earned an 'A' rating from the National Rifle Association.  For the past 40 years, I have lived in, owned and run small businesses, and been involved as a citizen activist and elected leader here in New Hampshire, and I know that law-abiding gun owners do not want our Second Amendment rights compromised."

- An individual's right to keep and bear arms regardless of where they live.


Rubens pledges to oppose:

- Bans and/or limits on magazine capacity.

- Gun registration.

- Legislation that would turn our law-abiding citizens into criminals.

- Ratification of any treaty or international agreement that would infringe on the individual right to keep and bear arms.
