FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

New Hampshire Republican Party maverick Andy Martin’s reporting causes local TV station WMUR to “discover” conservative summit

 

WMUR ignored the conservative “603 Alliance” meeting which took place the day after a Republican Party “summit,” until Andy Martin criticized the station for its lack of conservative coverage

 

Two days after Andy’s criticism, WMUR “discovered” the conservative event had previously taken place

 

(Dateline: national) (April 24, 2015)(reissued July 10, 2015) WMUR-TV and maverick New Hampshire Republican leader Andy Martin have a fraught and often competitive relationship. But when Andy chided the station for ignoring the “603 Alliance” conservative summit, two days after Andy’s criticism the station “discovered” the event had previously taken place (link below). Despite ignoring conservatives when they met on April 19th, Andy’s criticism of the station’s lack of coverage prompted WMUR to afford conservatives belated coverage.

“When I say that I move the news in New Hampshire, and people quietly pay attention to my writing and research, I am not exaggerating” Andy says. “WMUR paid no attention to the 603 Alliance summit until I pointed out the station’s lack of coverage of the conservative event. Two days later the station belatedly reported on the conservative meeting. I bring an important and independent dimension to New Hampshire media and Republican Party politics. Notwithstanding a widespread impression to the contrary, there is clearly anti-conservative bias in New Hampshire’s media.”

Andy is generally considered to have orchestrated the defeat of U. S. Senate Scott Brown in 2014 as payback after GOP party leaders harassed his own senate primary campaign. “They ran a dirty primary campaign, and it backfired on them,” Andy stated at the time. “It cost them a senate seat they could have won. Maybe next time they won’t run a rigged primary and/or harass my campaign. If they do, they know what they can expect.”

New Hampshire presidential politics: national media ignore the most important event at New Hampshire GOP “summit”

Friday and Saturday, April 17-18, New Hampshire Republican leaders conducted a “grand” cattle call that attracted over 150 media and over 600 local and regional Republicans. But conservative New Hampshire activist Andy Martin says the “main event” in presidential politics, totally missed by national and local media, took place Sunday morning when the “603 Alliance” conducted its own “summit” and attracted an unusually large turnout from activists, not party bigwigs and yesterday’s GOP leaders. As the 2016 presidential race unfolds, Andy looks for the discrepancies between the “theater” of national media reporting and the “reality on the ground” of conservative activists determined to thwart the ambitions of Jeb Bush.

UPDATE: Andy will have a “fighting camp” in South Florida next weekend, April 26-27, to organize opposition and comment on Jeb Bush’s “summit” of the Bush family’s “Rolodex royalty.” Stand by for Andy’s investigation, original reporting and conservative commentary from Miami. From his Internet perch as a combined conservative and commentator Andy is spearheading the national opposition to Jeb Bush’s candidacy.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

New Hampshire Republican Party maverick Andy Martin says the national media missed “the main event” in presidential politics last weekend in New Hampshire

 

Andy says the New Hampshire Republican Party’s “summit” was a pseudo event, hugely entertaining but ultimately insignificant

 

The Sunday morning meeting of the “603 Alliance” at the same hotel, however, was the main event that was ignored by national and even local media

 

The large conservative turnout Sunday surprised even organizers of the event

 

Stand by: Andy prepares to launch a “fighting camp” in Miami April 26-27 to attack Jeb Bush’s “Rolodex royalty” summit

 

(Dateline: national) (April 22, 2015) Last weekend, April 17-18, the New Hampshire Republican Party staged a very elaborate “cattle call” for nineteen presidential candidates and potential candidates. The parking lot of the Crowne Plaza Nashua was filled with TV satellite trucks. Over 150 media requested accreditation. All in all, it was a grand event and was executed very well by the organizers. I registered for the “summit” and attended.  But while the “summit” was a political event the meeting was largely devoid of actual “politics.”

The following day on Sunday April 19th at the same hotel the national, regional and local media missed the genuinely important event that took place, when the “603 Alliance” held their own conservative summit. There was real politics when conservatives gathered and sponsors of the meeting were surprised by the large turnout.

The state establishment “summit” attracted a capacity crowd; the GOP event was a sellout and filled the ballroom with somewhere around 600-700 (though not all at the same time). On Sunday the conservative 603 Alliance attracted about 200 people, give or take. So why was the smaller crowd more significant for presidential politics?

Allow me to explain.

The Friday-Saturday event was a genuine presidential cattle call. The presidential candidates turned out en masse and all of them made a good presentation. But there is a huge difference between party “leaders” (who could afford the $200 registration fee) and the “603” conservative party activists (who were charged $12 for online registration). While many of the GOP attendees may be courted by presidential candidates, few of the locals will be actively involved in the campaign beyond lending their names and perhaps holding the odd coffee klatch.

The smaller crowd Sunday, made up of conservative activists, is seriously trying to influence the 2016 presidential primary by endorsing a single conservative so that conservative votes are not diluted over a large school of candidates, thereby allowing Jeb Bush to win a “victory” with a small fraction of the overall vote.

And here’s the amazing fact: near as I can tell, only one reporter, Betsy Woodruff of the Daily Beast, reported on the 603 event (see link below). There were no TV cameras that I saw, other than those of a local blog, granitegrok.com that covered the event (see link blow). A hardworking local blogger also covered the event, datechguyblog.com, (link blow) and you can see what he had to say.

Ms. Woodruff was your typical sneering Washington “queen,” making fun of the conservatives and leading her coverage of the event with the fact that it began with a “rockabilly band.” I didn’t do a head count, but I believe granitegrok.com had a better attendance count than Woodruff. You could see Woodruff’s contempt dripping from her comments: how could these New Hampshireites dare to challenge the dauphin Jeb Bush? How?

The local “newspaper,” the Manchester Union Leader, did not cover the 603 Alliance event. Neither did the local TV channel, WMUR. So the “locals” were as clueless as the national media.

I can understand how a cattle call of presidential candidates could attract a large crowd. It was interesting to see them one after the other, giving their stock campaign speeches. But, ultimately, “nothing happened” at the GOP party event.

At the 603 Alliance event, on the other hand, the large turnout surprised even sponsors. I overheard one of the organizers, Jack Kimball, saying (and I’m not quoting verbatim) “I was surprised by the turnout.” So I asked Jack directly, “were you surprised?” and he said “yes.” Getting 200 people to show up for a conservative conference on Sunday morning was an impressive achievement that went unnoticed locally and nationally.

Truly, for “the media,” last weekend was a “lost weekend.” With exception of the sneering Woodruff, they missed the significance of the conservative energy manifested all day Sunday. Friday and Saturday the Crowne Plaza was serving salmon and steak and raspberry dressing; Sunday the CP prepared “box lunches.” One event was grandly produced and it was successful as political theater or as a pseudo event. But the GOP meeting had very little to do with actual “politics.”

The 603 conference on the other hand, portends an enraged and engaged conservative community, and a small army of Granite Staters who – despite the sneers of the New York-Washington media – are determined not to let the Bush dynasty make a mess of our country a third time around.

I will have more to say about the impact of ordinary people who are ridiculed or ignored by the national, and often even local and regional, media. One reporter, I think it was Kasie Hunt of MSNBC, the Maddow channel, even showed up wearing cowboy boots. Where did she think she was going? To a real cattle call at a farm in Nashua?

So tell your friends, and maybe even your enemies, if they want to know what is really happening in New Hampshire politics, sign up with Andy. I have been dishing original reporting and political controversy for decades. And while you can disagree with my opinions, I always get the facts right and my predictions almost 100% right. Where the national media have lost their sense of smell, I can smell a developing story a mile away. “603” may be New Hampshire’s only area code. But before the 2016 primary is over, “603” may also stand for an alliance that will influence the outcome of the election and possibly deal a death blow to the resurgence of Bush fever.

Why is ContrarianCommentary.com essential reading for national politics and international news?

Andy Martin’s combination of investigation, commentary and analysis, coupled with conservative activism and advertising, is unique across the media spectrum. During the past two presidential election cycles (2008, 2012) Andy has been a clandestine power player from his perch on the Internet. In 2004, Andy published the first international investigation of then-state senator Barack Obama, exposing that Obama’s “autobiography” “Dreams From My Father” was largely fictionalized and that Obama’s “life story” was also fictionalized. Andy predicted – in 2004 – that Obama could be a threat to Israel.

Throughout the past decade mainstream media have tried to demean Andy by claiming he is creating “rumors,” by publishing false information about him and by falsely accusing him of anti-Semitism. Andy has proven impervious and indestructible to attacks of mainstream media.

Today, nearly a third of the nation believes what Andy has written and is writing about American politics. Andy attracts readers across the political spectrum, from liberals to conservatives, Republicans and Democrats. How many columnists can claim such a national impact?

In 2007, Chris Hayes, now of MSNBC, accused Andy of orchestrating a “vast right-wing smear machine” (link below). In 2008 the Washington Post accused Andy of being the source of Internet opposition to Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy (link below). In October, 2008, Andy’s appearance on “Sean Hannity’s America” (see link below) created such a firestorm that Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs went on the “Hannity and Colmes” program and sought to create a diversion by absurdly accusing Hannity, a strong supporter of Israel, of being “anti-Semitic.”

The New York Times was so concerned by the power of Andy’s Internet influence that the paper produced a front page story (link below) which made Andy a national hero to the anti-Obama movement. Later Andy triggered electoral College challenges to Obama. Andy kept on attacking after Obama was inaugurated.

In 2012 Andy was the first to recognize the importance of the Benghazi issue. He worked tirelessly for the election of Mitt Romney. In 2014 Andy’s research into Scott Brown’s exaggerated military claims defeated the front-man for the New Hampshire Republican establishment.

In 2016, Andy is providing new insight and information, about New Hampshire and national politics, foreign policy, intelligence and military analysis. Andy celebrates fifty (50) years since he first went to Washington and Capitol Hill to study U. S. Senate Rules and parliamentary procedure.

Despite relentless attacks from the liberal media, false accusations, distortions and outright meanness, in 2016 Andy is more influential and a more powerful player on the New Hampshire and national political scene than ever before. You will not always agree with him, but you have to know what he is saying. Enlist in “Andy’s Army” and join the never-ending battle for truth, justice and American Exceptionalism.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Attention New Hampshire, National, Political and Daybook/Assignment editors

 

Announcement of Nashua, NH news conference Saturday, April 18, 2015

 

Andy Martin issues “Fact Sheet” comparing Jeb Bush’s “multicultural” policies to those of President Barack Obama and calling the two virtually identical 

 

Andy says the influence of Jeb Bush’ Mexican-American spouse, Columba Bush, would undermine America’s cultural cohesiveness and remove any remaining impediments to border security

 

Andy has established a Nashua, NH “fighting camp” to work against Bush for the duration of the New Hampshire GOP’s FITN Summit on April 18th

At a Friday news conference in Nashua Andy compared the influence of Columba Bush on her husband to that of a Juan Peron-style “Evita”

 

(COC-Nashua, NH) (Saturday, April 18, 2015)

Nashua, NH News Conference: Andy Martin, the Republican who is spearheading the opposition to Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign, will hold a Nashua, NH news conference today, Saturday April 18th, to issue a “Fact Sheet” accusing Bush of advocating “multicultural,” pro-Spanish and pro-Mexican policies that are virtually identical to those of President Barack Obama. “Bush may claim to be a ‘conservative,’” Andy says. “And he occasionally throws conservatives a little right-wing catnip. But when you scratch below the surface, Bush, because of pressure from his Evita-like wife Columba, Bush would be pursuing the same kinds of border policies and language and immigration policies that are identical to President Obama. Obama is compromising our national security by undermining America’s cultural cohesiveness and allowing our borders to be unprotected. Despite his protestations to the contrary, Bush would essentially continue Obama’s approach.”

A copy of the Fact Sheet follows:

If you like Barack Obama,

you’ll love Jeb Bush

Barack Obama claims to be a “transformational” president. Jeb Bush wants to continue Obama’s “transformational” policies. Compare their records:

  1. Illegal Immigration/abandonment of religion

Jeb Bush’s wife, a Mexican-American citizen, demands that Jeb legalize millions of Mexican and other illegal immigrants. Mrs. Bush mysteriously received a Green Card while still only a teenager; Jeb refuses to release his wife’s original INS (now ICE) files. Secret family files? Sound familiar? Identical to Obama’s approach. The Bush and Obama immigration policies are the same. To satisfy his wife, Bush abandoned his family religion. Obama’s religion? (Hint: Obama was born a Muslim, now claims to be a Christian, and rarely attends church.) Jeb Bush is a very confused man, just like Barack Obama.

  1. Making Spanish an official language of the United States

Barack Obama is trying to tear down two hundred years of American history by making the United States a “multicultural” country without any legally enforced borders. To satisfy his wife’s demands, Jeb Bush wants to make Spanish an official language of the United States. Jeb Bush speaks Spanish at home; do you want a Spanish-speaking White House run by an “Evita”-like First Lady? Jeb will continue Obama’s pro-multicultural policies. So if you love the Obama approach, you can keep the same “attitude” with Bush. Obama and Bush, perfect together.

  1. Unnecessary Bush Family wars; more to come?
  1. In 1990 President George H. W. Bush’s State Department (remember Ambassador April Glaspie?) led Saddam Hussein to believe the United States would not object to an invasion of Kuwait; when Saddam did exactly what he was told was acceptable, the Bush Administration reversed itself and attacked Iraq.
  1. In 1999 I broadcast a commercial over WMUR-TV warning Americans that George W. Bush would “bomb Iraq” and start a second Bush Family war. At the time no one listened. My prediction proved to be 100% correct. G. W. Bush’s 2003 Iraq invasion will eventually cost taxpayers 4-6 trillion dollars for an unnecessary war to avenge his father’s “honor.”
  1. The Bush Family’s campaign contributors have profited from unnecessary wars. Now Jeb’s “neo-cons” are once again beating the war drums. Sound familiar?
  1. My Obama predictions

In October, 2008, on “Sean Hannity’s America,” I warned Barack Obama wanted to “overthrow” the U.S. Government. Watch the tape: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgjQhnDEGSk  Are Obamacare, Irancare and Cubacare an “overthrow” of the established order? On Hannity I also predicted Obama would embrace Cuban dictator Fidel Castro; Obama has now endorsed the Castro regime. My predictions concerning George W. Bush and Barack Obama have been prophetically correct. Now I am warning why Jeb Bush is a clear and present danger to America.

PLEASE HELP STOP JEB BUSH!

Andy Martin charges that New Hampshire GOP leader Jennifer Horn is jeopardizing the 2016 presidential primary by defending a sex fiend

Independent New Hampshire Republican leader Andy Martin says a New Hampshire sex scandal involving U. S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, Jennifer Horn, State Representative Bill O’Brien and Dave Wihby will almost certainly impact the 2016 presidential primary. Horn’s inappropriate behavior defending an accused sex fiend could also inflict lasting damage on both New Hampshire’s presidential primary and the local Republican Party.

David Wihby, a senior staff associate to U. S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, was recently arrested in Nashua in a prostitution sting. Ordinarily the actions of the Nashua Police Department’s “Prostitute Squad” would not have national implications. But Andy explains why the sex scandal and Horn’s belligerent and incompetent behavior is reopening old wounds and creating party fissures that will seriously impact the 20216t presidential primary.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Andy Martin says that Jennifer Horn’s attacks on State Representative Bill O’Brien are certain to impact the 2016 presidential primary

 

Andy says Horn‘s corruption and incompetence as a state party leader will make a mess of the 21016 presidential primary

 

Andy says Horn is jeopardizing the integrity of New Hampshire’s “first in the nation” primary and should resign as state chairman

 

Andy says Horn’s corruption and incompetence cost New Hampshire Republicans a 2014 U. S. Senate election victory

 

Andy once again defends free speech in the New Hampshire Republican Party

 

(Honolulu, HI) (April 10, 2015) Let me begin by stating some basics: [1] I am not a friend or supporter of State Representative Bill O’Brien. [2] I am an admitted political opponent of New Hampshire Republican State Chairman Jennifer Horn. [3] I am not an opponent of U. S. Senator Kelly Ayotte but I generally view her record favorably. [4] I am in all probability New Hampshire’s leading (only?) political and governmental corruption fighter.

Ironically, I am in Honolulu this week and part of next week investigating a prostitution arrest connected to President Barack Obama (more to come on that important story as my investigation in Honolulu proceeds).

So what caught my attention? A prostitution arrest back home in New Hampshire because that arrest will almost certainly affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential primary.

David Wihby, the “state director” for U. S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (see multiplicity of links below) was arrested by the Nashua Police Department in a prostitution sting. Usually a local prostitution arrest would not trigger national implications. But the “secondary explosions” following the arrest of local powerhouse David Wihby do have national implications for the 2016 presidential primary and perhaps even for primaries after that one. Allow me to explain. (I will also be providing coverage in greater depth on this issue during the next few days as we approach a “First in the Nation” presidential candidate event April 18-18 in – where else? – Nashua. (Hopefully no candidate will be caught by the NPD’s “Prostitution Squad” during the “FITN” event.)

I worked in the U. S. Senate and have been a follower of the senate and national politics for half a century. One of the cardinal rules for U. S. Senators is that they should not intrude in local politics and party primaries because such local meddling can cost them support and ultimately reelection. Ayotte has been a decent senator, not excellent but decent, but her lack of prior elected political experience and her constant meddling in New Hampshire GOP internal politics and primaries could cost her reelection in 2016.

In 2014, Ayotte supported Horn’s maneuver to import an out-of-state candidate, Scott Brown, for the U. S. Senate. The tactic backfired. Conservatives rebelled. In late 2014 Ayotte again backed Horn during an internal battle over who would become speaker of the state house of representatives after Republicans took control in Concord in 2014. The majority of the caucus supported State representative Bill O’Brien but Horn and Ayotte backed his opponent. O’Brien was stabbed in the back when the supporters of Horn and Ayotte supported an anti-O’Brien candidate for speaker, and the Democrats ended up choosing the speaker for a Republican majority. Understandably, O’Brien is still rankled by what happened only a few months ago.

Horn has been attacking me since 2011 and so I have no more love for her than Bill O’Brien does.

Earlier this week O’Brien issued an attack on Ayotte for her poor choice of senior staff member in Wihby. End of story? Not at all. Horn then attacked O’Brien for attacking Wihby and herein lies the crux of the conflict for 2016 and thereafter.

Horn likes to talk about “party unity.” But Horn is functionally an idiot. Horn has done more to spread GOP party disunity than anyone else in New Hampshire. For Horn, “party unity” is a one way street, and she owns the street. Not surprisingly, conservative and pro-integrity Republicans such as me are opponents of Horn and her one-way demands for party unity.

Horn said O’Brien’s critical remarks about Ayotte and Wihby were “extremely disappointing and beneath the dignity of his public office.” Defending Ayotte and Wihby, Horn said everyone should be praying for the “john” and his “recovery.”

I am not defending O’Brien. He is fully capable of defending himself. But I am defending free speech for New Hampshire Republicans, this time Bill O’Brien’s. Last month Horn attacked U. S. Senator Ted Cruz, seeking to limit his free speech; I also defended Cruz’s right to speak his mind.

Horn recently obtained national publicity when Governor Scott Walker had to avoid her home due to a dog allergy. How many presidential candidates are going to want to be seen with Horn or by her side when she is creating intra-party conflicts and reopening wounds, thereby becoming toxic to local Granite State Republicans? How many? Not many. And how many candidates are politely going to go out of their way to avoid Horn? Very many.

I am going to have a lot more to say about Jennifer Horn’s toxicity in the next week. Horn is a disgrace to the New Hampshire Republican Party. And because she continually keeps insulting loyal Republicans, seeking to rig state primaries and prefer one candidate over another to promote her own self-interest, she is going to negatively impact the 2016 presidential primary. Other states are only too willing to pounce on New Hampshire’s “first in the nation” status. If Horn keeps making New Hampshire a place where state leaders – who are supposed to be neutral – keep attacking loyal local Republicans with whom they disagree, New Hampshire is going to become a primary pariah in the future. Horn made a lifetime enemy of me in 2011 (all while her son was driving drunk along the state’s highways, potentially killing someone and while Horn has IRS tax liens on her home; she is the complete hypocrite) and Horn is making new enemies of Granite State Republicans every day.

Bill O’Brien was the choice of a majority of his caucus. He was screwed by Horn & Co. Any presidential candidate who allows himself or herself to be featured with Horn is likely to become toxic to O’Brien and other conservatives. I am not perfect, O’Brien is not perfect. Horn is not perfect. If we were able to sit down and work out our differences without dirty dealing and backstabbing perhaps we could. But because Horn persists in repeatedly screwing us and many, many other Republicans she is single-handedly destroying the Republican Party in New Hampshire and ensuring ongoing Democratic Party dominance.

Jennifer Horn? She is “First in the Nation” among corrupt and incompetent state Republican Party leaders. Need I say more about what this bodes for the 2016 presidential primary and beyond? And so, an obscure prostitution arrest of an obscure individual will almost certainly have an impact in the 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary. Any presidential candidate seen with Horn will be toxic to loyal New Hampshire Republicans.

Andy Martin says that New Hampshire GOP leader Jennifer Horn is trying to muzzle presidential candidates

Andy Martin, the man who spearheaded the media tactics that defeated Massachusetts interloper Scott Brown in the 2014 U. S. Senate election, says GOP state chair Jennifer Horn is trying to muzzle 2016 presidential candidates and infantilize the presidential primary. Andy, an independent New Hampshire Republican Party leader, says Horn’s tactics failed in 2014 and will fail again in 2016. “Criticizing the record and qualifications of your opponent is a time-honored American campaign practice,” Andy says. “Jennifer Horn tries to protect her own financial interests by pretending she is presiding at a political kindergarten where candidates can only say ‘nice things’ and cannot say ‘bad things’ about other contenders. That is not the way politics works. In 2014, Horn tried to stifle criticism of interloper Scott Brown. By seeking to discourage criticism, Horn forced Brown’s opponents to go ‘underground’ and Brown lost the conservative base in the general election. Now Horn is trying to protect Jeb Bush by stifling campaign criticism in 2016.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Andy Martin says Ted Cruz and Fergus Cullen should be free to speak their mind without censorship or intimidation from Jennifer Horn

 

Andy says Horn has done more to undermine the New Hampshire GOP than anyone else in the Granite State

 

Andy says Horn should disclose her unpaid taxes and arrangements with Barack Obama’s IRS

 

Andy is laying down a marker that he will be a tough player in the 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary; stay tuned

 

(Manchester, NH) (March 17, 2015) Let me begin by stating some basics: [1] I do not know Senator Ted Cruz and I am not a supporter. I am not supporting any presidential candidate at this time.

[2] I do not know Fergus Cullen. I suspect Cullen doesn’t like me any more than he likes Ted Cruz, but I unhesitatingly defend Cullen’s right to free speech, to criticize candidates and to engage in “biting” speech.

[3] Jennifer Horn and I are not friends. She has done everything she can to harass me, and I am committed to seeing her removed. I believe that because of her IRS tax liens Horn is really a Trojan Horse for the Obama administration, and a traitor to the state GOP.

[4] I believe the New Hampshire GOP State Committee has shown egregious bad judgment by allowing Horn to continue as a party leader when Horn owes back taxes to the IRS. What kind of a message does that send to voters?

Horn diverted her income taxes from payments to the IRS to her own failed political campaigns. I suspect she is paying off the IRS on an installment plan but no one knows what she owes. Horn refuses to be transparent about her obvious conflict of interest with Barack Obama’s IRS.

[5] I am committed to the defeat of Jeb Bush in the presidential campaign. We will stop Jebbie cold.

Last week Fergus Cullen said some nasty things about Senator Ted Cruz (see link #1 below). Cullen had every right to say what he did abut Cruz. Candidate criticism is an honorable part of our political history.

Decades ago, Ronald Reagan concocted his “Eleventh Commandment” to silence his own critics. Unfortunately, Reagan worshippers have extended the late president’s “commandment” into a straightjacket in a way that was never intended to silence campaign criticism or confrontation. Time after time, election after election, Republicans stand mute as primary candidates campaign without any meaningful examination of their records, and without any meaningful intra-party criticism. Then the Democratic Party’s dirt diggers and mudslingers attack the unsuspecting Republicans in the fall election.

The biggest victim of this internal silencing was Mitt Romney, who was surprised in 2012 when Democrats came after him hammer and tong. Romney had never faced serious confrontation in the primaries, although Newt Gingrich tried to lay out some of the anti-Romney case.

 

In 2014 Jennifer Horn imported Massachusetts candidate Scott Brown. Horn was trying to promote her own financial interests, which I will discuss in an upcoming column. Horn tried to silence other candidates from criticizing Brown and she tried to disrupt my senate campaign by silencing me. But I took the truth to the media. I was committed to defeating Brown and, as I promised in response to Horn’s dirty tricks, if she stabbed me in the primary in return I would stab Brown in the general election. She did and I did.

Horn is the most ignorant and corrupt GOP state party leader in the United States. Her new claim that “all Republicans would be best focused on promoting their favorite candidates rather than attacking others” (see link #2 below) is an attempt to promote her financial franchise and to muzzle intra-party criticism.

But the current “New Hampshire system” does not produce viable opponents to confront the Democratic Party’s standard bearers. In 2014 Horn could not produce a viable gubernatorial candidate, and she abandoned one congressional candidate to promote Scott Brown’s money machine. Then, after the election, Horn had the gall to take credit for state legislative victories, where her minions had played no meaningful role. Horn did more to defeat Republican candidates in 2014 than to elect them. If Horn had encouraged an open and honest primary Brown would probably be a senator today. Because she fixed and rigged the primary, all of Brown’s opponents to some extent worked against him.

Now Horn is trying to repeat her dirty tricks by rigging the presidential primary in favor of Jeb Bush, because Jeb Bush has the most cash to pass around to New Hampshire’s outstretched and open palms. Instead of defending Cullen’s right to free speech, she was and is trying to tamp down criticism, which will mostly be of Bush.

I go back a long way in presidential primaries. I remember the 1988 New Hampshire primary, when Senator Bob Dole accused George H. W. Bush of “lying about [Dole’s] record.” I observed George W. Bush’s dirty tricks from the inside in 2000. If Jeb Bush doesn’t want to criticize his opponents, that his is privilege. But if Cullen, or others, want to rip a candidate or candidates, that is their constitutional right. They should not be muzzled by Jennifer Horn.

 

As for myself, I have every intention of criticizing Jeb Bush because both he and his family have been a disaster for the American people. Two unnecessary Bush Middle East wars are enough. Jeb is manifestly unsuited to lead our nation.

So, Ted Cruz, feel free to “tell it like it is.” And Mr. Cullen, have it at. I may not agree with either of you but I will defend your right to free speech. Live Free or Die.

New Hampshire conservative leader Andy Martin: CPAC and ACU should stop discriminating against Log Cabin Republicans

Independent New Hampshire Republican leader Andy Martin “comes out” in favor of allowing CPAC to allow full participation by Log Cabin Republicans and says the time has come for both conservative organizations and the Republican Party to remove any remaining barriers to welcoming gays in the party. “In New Hampshire we have an inclusive party, and no one doubts New Hampshire’s conservative credentials,” Andy says. “When CPAC refuses to allow a legitimate Republican Party organization to be a full participant they are not acting in a ‘conservative’ manner, they are engaging in liberal-style identity politics that we abhor and condemn. I urge CPAC to reconsider and to welcome the Log Cabin Republicans this week.”

Andy Martin says it is time for ACU to admit Log Cabin Republicans to full participation in CPAC

Andy says that the Republican Party must be open to all; the Republican Party and the conservative movement have their origins in human rights and the universal striving for human liberty and dignity

(New York, NY) (February 25, 2015) The American Conservative Union (“ACU”) sponsors an annual Conservative Political Action Conference (“CPAC”). Once again the ACU has refused to allow a Republican pro-gay organization, the Log Cabin Republicans (“LCR”) to participate in CPAC. I recognize that ACU has a right to decide whom to allow to participate in CPAC. But I urge the ACU to open CPAC to the LCR. The time to do so has arrived. LCR’s are good Republicans and brave human beings and they deserve encouragement.

I call on ACU and CPAC to end their discrimination against gays and specifically against LCR. Let me be explicit as to my views. Homosexuality is not a “lifestyle choice,” although gays have traditionally gathered together out of fear of discrimination and recrimination.

Homosexuality is ordained by God and determined at creation. I accept fully the testimonies of individuals who have stated they were aware of their sexual orientation as children. We engage in hypocrisy when we seek to exclude human beings based on their sexual orientation. As homosexuality has become more openly discussed, I have been surprised to see that so many of my friends have family members who have been hidden from sight because of their sexual orientation. Everyone has right to come out into the sunlight and be recognized and valued for who they are as human beings.

Like most people over the age of 50, I grew up in an environment where homosexual issues were treated very differently than they are today. But the very essence of political leadership is flexibility in response to changed conditions and changing social attitudes. The New Hampshire Republican Party is an inclusive Party. Gays are welcome to participate. The Republican Party has its origins in the struggle for human rights and national redemption in the 1850’s, and so should be particularly open to classes of persons who are the victims of discrimination. Republicans led the civil rights progress of the 1960’s.

While race and sexual identity are not exactly comparable, I believe that conservatives should welcome gays who are open about both their sexual orientation and conservative principles. As someone whom many people would identify as an Alpha male, I am cognizant I did not “earn” my sexuality. I inherited my genes and orientation. (I take a contrary position with regard to “closeted” gays such as Illinois U. S. Senator Mark Kirk, because I believe the act of closeting and denial is both politically and psychologically unhealthy. Kirk is a prime example of that confusion and conflict.)

The conservative movement should be focused on issues, not sexual orientation.

Show how about it CPAC? LCR’s are brave people. They have been open about their sexual identity, a status that in the past has not always received a welcoming embrace. The time for a change in attitudes is now. Change is not always easy; I know from personal experience. But change is essential if Republicans are to strive for majority status. Every American must join in the “war” to undo the damage inflicted on America by the very “inclusive” Barack Hussein Obama. (Obama has not only been inclusive as to sexual orientation; he has been especially “inclusive” in seeking to “include” our pocketbooks in his insatiable demand for higher taxes.)

LCR’s. Welcome.
