Disappointed Michelle Caruso-Cabrera (Ex-CNBC) Is ‘Primarying’ AOC.

She claims that she has been a registered Democrat for many years. IF so, she should NOT be primarying AOC — irrespective of whether you agree, 100%, with all of AOC’s politics, statements and stances. ONLY one of these two formidable females can emerge victorious from the Primary. That is a SHAME.

We need BOTH of them. That is my gripe.

The Democrats have enough problems, right now, that infighting like this — which results in ELIMINATION.

Not happy.

I have always liked Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. She is intelligent, impressive and from New Hampshire. This makes her come across as petty and bitchy.

Ah, Dear! The Democrats are SCREWED.

I hope she will reconsider this decision.

Donald Trump Told Mexican President, In January 2017, That New Hampshire Is A ‘Drug-Infested Den’.

OUR Senator Maggie Hassan’s response on Facebook. Click to ENLARGE.


His full statement to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, in January 2017, was:

“I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den,” he said.

Well, he won NH during the Primary BUT NOT in the 2016 General Election. Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire in 2016!

Click to ENLARGE. New Hampshire (NH) is towards the TOP RIGHT (Northeast).

So …

But, to be fair to ‘Agent Orange’ New Hampshire does have a MASSIVE drug problem. So, let’s not get too distracted by this statement. We need to FIX the drug problem in New Hampshire. Period.

It Was Cool To Meet ‘Hunter Taylor’, Of Alton, The BIG Winner Of The Belknap County Commissioner Primary.

by Anura Guruge

Hunter Taylor with his wife, Ruth Larson.


I had a 3pm in Gilford on NH September Primary Day, Sept. 13, 2016, to get my teeth cleaned. On the way home I decided to swing by the Gilford Polling Station to ‘press-the-flesh’ with my Democrat friends, Lisa DiMartino and Nancy Frost in particular. I missed Lisa since she had left for Meredith. But Nancy was still there as was Johan Andersen — both, like Lisa, running for NH House. Standing next to them, wearing a “Hunter Taylor” golf-shirt was this rather neat lady who promptly engaged me in a lively conversation and did a wonderful, much endearing impression of our (of late) ex-neighbor the wavering part-time ex-politician. I liked her — much. She was cool. She turned out to be “Ruth Larson” — Hunter Taylor’s wife (and as she told me, one of his former students). She and I had a lot to talk about, in particular Hunter Taylor’s opponent’s very shady financial dealings.

As we were chatting Hunter Taylor, who I had not previously met, sauntered over. To my amazement he knew who I was! I was impressed. He is a real cool dude. Nice guy. As some of you know I do not let my strong Democratic leanings get in the way of liking people irrespective of their political leanings. Plus on some social issues I (still retaining my old reputation for being “to the right of Thatcher“) am very much with the Conservatives — even more of a stickler than the current Pope. Hunter Taylor, by any measure, is a much better candidate to continue as Commissioner than his opponent. No wonder he went to beat him 2,035 to 591 votes; 500 to 153 in Alton, where both contestants reside. I am glad that Hunter Taylor won. I went searching the Web to find the results because WMUR was not forthcoming.

I am glad I stopped at the Polling Station.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Are Not Rich Because Like Bernie They Suck At Math.

Of course you will never be rich if you fritter away your hard earned money (or money you get us handouts) on lost causes. Rich people, on the whole, are good at not wasting their money on lost causes. Jeb Bush folding his campaign is a classic case in point. Rich Republicans are NOT going to waste money once they worked out that the math just does not add up.

As long Hillary Rodham Clinton stays in the race Bernie Sanders cannot overtake her. It is mathematically IMPOSSIBLE because of two reasons: all Democratic primary races have proportional delegate allocations and Superdelegates.

Bernie will have to WIN all the remaining states 77% to 23% to overtake Hillary.

Well Kosher pigs would have to fly to make that happen. Even in Iowa he didn’t win that BIG and I doubt whether he will win with that majority even in Vermont.

So Bernie Sanders doggedly carrying on — angry, sputtering (and spreading germs) and losing — is irresponsible. This has become a BIG ego trip for him in his dotage.

The BEST Campaign Reform that Bernie can pull off is to STOP his campaign!

He is exploiting poor people who are not good at math.

Please ….

Don’t waste money — even if you got it as a handout.

Clinton will most likely walk away from South Carolina with at least 61 delegates to Bernie’s 41.

Bernie Sanders — Academic Qualifications: No Higher Degree, No Ivy League, No MBA.

Just listening to his unrealistic plans — which Hillary Clinton took him to task during Thursday night’s debate — I had a hunch that he was not an academic heavyweight. He, at a minimum, seems innumerate. The math of his proposals, whether it be health care or ‘free’ education, just does not add up. Plus given the weight of Superdelegates against him, mathematically his chances of winning the Democratic nomination is slim to none SINCE all the Democratic Primaries and Caucuses are PROPOSITIONAL. He won BIG in New Hampshire but got the same number of delegates as Hillary. There aren’t other States, bar Vermont, that he can win with BIG enough majorities to overcome Hillary Clinton’s 30x (i.e., 30 TIMES) lead in Superdelegates.

Obama went to Harvard and has a J.D. — a Doctorate in Law. He even had a job as a bona fide University Professor teaching Law.

George W. Bush went to Yale and (this will surprise many) got an MBA from the Harvard Business School!

Clinton, did attend famed Oxford University as a Rhode Scholar — and it is described as “perhaps the most prestigious (of postgraduate) scholarship”– and got a J.D. from Yale Law School.

George H. Bush, whose schooling was interrupted by World War II, did finally attend Yale.

Hillary, like Bill, also has a J.D. from Yale Law School.

So this should explain a LOT about Bernie Sanders. Think about it.

[Oh, in case you are wondering I do has a Master’s (with Distinction) from the University of London (U.K.). SMILE.]
