ALG's Daily Grind - Obama's 8 Most Dishonest State of the Union Moments 


Jan. 30, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds and cartoons granted.

Obama's 8 most dishonest state of the union moments
2013's most egregious liar from Washington D.C. (which puts him high in the running for most egregious worldwide) got off to a fast start with his January address to Congress. 

What the heck do we have schools for?
Obama: "I've asked Vice President Biden to lead an across-the-board reform of America's training programs to make sure they have one mission: train Americans with the skills employers need, and match them to good jobs that need to be filled right now."

Why Hillary Clinton will likely not be the next president
Only once since FDR has the same party held the White House for more than eight years, and that was Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush from 1981 through 1992.

Video: Watch Sen. Mike Lee destroy Eric Holder's defense of Obama's unlawful executive orders
"When you look at the quality – not just the quantity, but the quality – the nature of the executive orders that he has issued, he has usurped an extraordinary amount of authority within the executive branch.  This is not precedented."


ALG's Daily Grind - The fate of the Union


Jan. 31, 2014

Never a dull moment in D.C.
In place of the usual post-State of the Union lull, the age of new media has highlighted a new environment of restlessness in Washington D.C..

Cartoon: Business vs. Government

The Muzak State of the Union
The meaning of words still matter beyond how they sound. It's easy to forget that listening to President Barack Obama sometimes, like during the State of the Union Tuesday.

Wall Street Journal: Obama to Nominate Navy Cybersecurity Chief to Head NSA
Vice Adm. Michael Rogers, currently the commander of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command, is set to be named by President Barack Obama as the next director of the National Security Agency.


NH GOP - Obama vs The Constitution 


President Obama used the State of the Union Address to reaffirm his plan to act unilaterally to do anything he thinks he can get away with, even without the authority from the Constitution or the consent of Congress.

The Constitution provides the primary rules for the federal government. Barack Obama is defying the Constitution of the United States of America. Obama is not upholding the Presidential Oath of Office.

The State of the Union Address should have informed the country of the high unemployment rate, the lack of job creation, the failure of Obamacare, and the explosion of debt under his watch.

I am asking for your support of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee. Our Party has the only elected officials who care about the Constitution. The Democrats are not even trying to follow the law; they just want more power.

Jeanne Shaheen, Carol Shea-Porter, and Ann Kuster have proven they are unfit to represent us again. They too have violated their oaths and their promises to the citizens of New Hampshire.

They stand by President Obama's infractions of the Constitution. They put their radical ideological agendas ahead of the law of the land. Since they agree with Barack Obama on every single issue, they are perfectly happy with disregarding the Constitution.

Please make a donation to the NH GOP to strengthen campaigns of candidates who will honor the Constitution.

Citizens Report: SOTU, Shaheen tele-town hall, and more... 

Senator Jeanne Shaheen hides behind a tele-town hall meeting
While she refuses to hold public town hall meetings, after months of pressure from Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, Senator Shaheen is still hiding, but has decided to host a tele-town hall meeting next week.

While we certainly still believe that this is a poor excuse for communicating with constituents, we encourage all Granite Staters to participate and ask her some of the important questions - such as why she still supports a failing Obamacare, why she ignores our skyrocketing debt and deficit, and how come shehasn't apologized for telling 22,000 Granite Staters who lost their insurance under Obamacare the "Lie of the Year."

In order to participate in the tele-town hall, you must pre-register.  Please click HERE to visit Senator Shaheen's website and sign-up.  After participating in her tele-town hall, email and let us know your thoughts on the meeting.
Responding to President Obama's State of the Union Address
On Tuesday, President Obama held his fifth State of the Union Address. In response to his speech, Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire made the following statement:

"President Obama delivered a message to the American people this evening with his central focus being that if Congress does not support his tax-and-spend liberal agenda, he will circumvent our forefathers' vision of checks and balances and separation of powers to accomplish his goals unilaterally. 

"Tonight we hoped for a message of leadership that would lower our debt and deficit and spur economic growth for all Granite Staters. However, we were given more of the same failed policies that have resulted in higher unemployment and larger government. All Americans deserved better."

Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire's statement was used in the Nashua Telegraph's editorial titled, "Play our State of the Union game."

Senator Jeanne Shaheen's "Lie of the Year"


THIS image we created this week was a big hit on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to "share" and "retweet" it to continue to remind Granite Staters that Senator Shaheen told us the "Lie of the Year," that we would keep our health insurance under Obamacare. 



Laugh of the week    
Here's some humor for your Friday, especially if you felt this way during Tuesday's State of the Union. Have a great weekend, Granite Staters!
