The legal counsel for the Republican-controlled state Senate declined Tuesday to turn over to the state Democratic Party individual lawmakers’ and legislative staffers’ emails, citing an opinion by the state attorney general.

What is it with this state, the whole country and gun laws? We have more laws on the books now then we know what to do with, and yet the stupid socialists liberals that have infected our country with their diseased mindset keep using every tragedy, what did they say, never let a tragedy go to waste, to destroy our way of life, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, our uniqueness compared with every other country. They will not be satisfied until this country…Continue

At this time in America when our nation is being purposely driven to crash economically, financially, socially, and educationally among others, by this administration and the far left, thanks be to God for Mr. Donald Trump. He is standing tall, with boldness and very courageously to denounce the current state of our country.
Others like current administration lies, hide behind these lies to either support America's trend of destruction by the…Continue

Gov. Maggie Hassan this week was busy with her pen - both signing and vetoing legislation.
Among the legislation she vetoed was a measure to allow licensed gun owners to carry concealed weapons without the need for an additional permit, so-called constitutional carry. Among the legislation she signed was the $126 million capital budget for the next biennium, as well as legislation giving immunity to those persons who call 911 in the event of a drug overdose.

Do you agree that ignoring that part of the world invites another 9/11 style attack?
During the time that I worked at your Grand Hyatt Hotel in NY, Then mayor Giuliani clamped down on a viriety of minor issues (Window washers, red light areas, etc). From there, the major crimes decreased. Your view of enforcing immigration, and (If I understand correctly) removing the "sanctuary" areas could well have the same result through the country. Not feeding the Race baiting ogre,…Continue

Closing the straits of Hormuz will cut off Iranian oil exports and either force them into a deal on nukes, Trump the negotiater, or create a revolution in Iran. It will probably cause the price of our oil to rise and give us more drilling,Trump for jobs, and make the Donald the darling of all Alaskans. Give em hell

The Donald may not be our next president but he is certainly right about illegals and the present administrations
lack of administering the laws we already have especially on immigration. All one has to do is check the prison
population to find that there are many more latinos than other races compared to the overall population ratios.
The Obama administration released illegals in 2013 (cis.org/ICE-Document-Details-36000-) and more this…Continue
