Press Release: Call For NH Democrat Chair Removal

For Immediate Release:                                                                                                  
Contact – Andrew Hemingway
Candidate for NHGOP Chair Andrew Hemingway calls for the Immediate Removal of House Criminal Justice and SafetyChair, Laura Pantelakos
Yesterday at the NH State House, hundreds of citizens came together to provide testimony to the House Criminal Justice and Safety Committee in regards to HB 135. The citizens who took valuable time out of their busy schedules arrived and gave testimony both in support of and in opposition to HB 135. After a particularly moving statement from a citizen in opposition of HB 135, there were a few who clapped briefly showing their support. It was at this point that the Chair showed her true bias and her true ideology by saying, "Show some respect for the members of this committee. We are forced to sit here and suffer through this…I am not going to tolerate this!"
"Suffer through this" ...That is to say that the chairwoman listening to voters voicing their opinions on legislation is to suffer. This is the Democrat leadership's opinion of listening to New Hampshire voters. This is without a doubt the most divisive, extreme leadership we have ever seen in the State House. Candidate for NHGOP Chair Andrew Hemingway, who attended the hearing yesterday, said "I was at the hearing and hundreds of citizens sacrificed time from their jobs and families to attend this hearing and were disrespected by the comments of the chairwoman. I am calling for her immediate removal as Chair of the committee. If the burden of listening to voters is too great for the chairwoman, than it is incumbent upon Speaker Norelli to remove her as chair and replace her with one that respects the voice of the people."
He continued, "Following the removal of the Redress of Grievances committee and now these statements, it is becoming apparent that this Democrat-lead House is not interested in hearing from the citizens of New Hampshire. They were elected to represent the voters of New Hampshire, yet their unwillingness to listen begs the question: Who exactly are they representing?"

2nd Amendment Rally in Concord 1/31 at Noon

Following the hugely successful Rally on Jan 19th, there will be another Pro-2nd Amendment Rally scheduled for noon on Jan. 31 at the Statehouse.

More immediate and very important is bill HB 135 on Tuesday Jan 22nd at 1:00. This is a bill sponsored by the Democrat's Majority Leader Steve Shurtliff, that would repeal "stand your ground". "Stand Your Ground" was added to the Castle Doctrine by the Republicans in 2011, which permitted deadly force when a person is threatened in a place that they have the right to be. We need everyone to load the Statehouse and tell their legislators to not give up one inch of our rights. !

The committee hearing is Tuesday Jan. 22. at 1:00 PM.

Please be seen and heard to stop this Democrat bill that will erode our rights.

Representative Baldasaro Suffers Heart Attack at the State House

"Al Baldasaro, R-Londonderry, the chair of the House Veteran's Affairs Committee, began feeling chest pains while at the State House and drove himself to Concord Hospital, where is expected to remain for at least a few more days."
"I had a chance to speak with Al this morning, and he is recovering well and expects to get back quickly into his legislative activities," House Speaker Bill O'Brien told WMUR Political Scoop. "He is certainly one tough Marine, and I know that he will come out of this strong. It's going to take a lot more than this to keep Al Baldasaro down. We wish him a full and speedy recovery."

On behalf of Representative Baldasaro I wish to thank all of you for your prayers and concern. I wish I could call each and every one of you and tell you personally. I want to share with you that Al Baldasaro is doing better today than he was Thursday after he suffered a serious heart attack at the State House. He drove himself to the hospital because we all know he is a tough Marine. He calls this heart attack a "temporary setback". The doctors at the Concord Hospital took great care of him and they immediently rushed him into the OR where they inserted a stint into a artery that was completely blocked.

I wish to share with you that he is as happy as always, and he is the best patient. He never complains about anything. He wants to make sure everyone knows his situation, because it is difficult for him to talk on the phone, email and text right now. He is most worried about his constituents and that he isn't available to help them right now. That is exactly what he was doing at the State House before he decided he could't wait anymore and that he needed to get to the hospital.

He will be in the hospital until at least Sunday or Monday. We do not know when he will be discharged. We expect he will not be able to drive or go to meetings at the State House for at least a week, and only resume activities as the doctors approve them.

The activity of visits and phone calls has been exhausting for him, and he would love to talk to each one of you, but it is difficult for him to do so at this time.

God Bless you and thank you for all of your Prayers,

Judy Seppala on behalf of Representative Al Baldasaro

Majority Leader Silva Challenges Democrat Candidates For Governor


CONCORD –House Majority Leader Pete Silva (R-Nashua) today offered the following comments on tonight’s Democrat Gubernatorial debate.


House Majority Leader Pete Silva


“In the spirit of tonight’s debate I would like to issue a challenge to all three Democrat candidates for Governor.  If any of you are able to say the name “Speaker O’Brien or Bill O’Brien” less than 10 times throughout the course of the debate I personally will send you a “Save America – Vote Republican” bumper sticker for you to proudly display on your mantle. That’s not all though. If any one of you can possibly make it through the whole debate without saying “Speaker O’Brien or Bill O’Brien” at all, I will happily send you a glossy, signed 8 ½” by 11” picture of the Speaker himself. Of course, I understand that providing your own solutions to the challenges our state faces might be a lot to ask for, but if you could please at least say the word “jobs” once or twice it would be greatly appreciated.“

House Speaker Comments on Federal Approval of Medicaid Managed Care Program


CONCORD – House Speaker William O’Brien today offered the following comments regarding news that the federal government has approved New Hampshire’s state plan amendment to implement managed care.  This allows the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to begin enrolling beneficiaries in managed care, which should begin around January 1.  Senate Bill 147, from 2011, required the state to begin managed care and the Executive Council approved the contracts for vendors in March.


House Speaker William O’Brien


“Managed care for Medicaid will mean savings for the hardworking taxpayers of New Hampshire and better care for those on Medicaid, as the focus will shift to prevention, and not simply treating people who get sick.  It’s truly unfortunate that the Obama administration chose to drag their feet with this approval process for what is a very straightforward Medicaid managed care plan.  Forty six other states use managed care for their Medicaid programs and there is no reason why the process needed to take this long in the Washington red tape factory.  We will soon find out just how much this delay cost our taxpayers.”


“I want to commend DHHS Commissioner Nick Toumpas and his staff for their extraordinary work to make this process work, despite the federal interference.  They are committed to delivering a better and financially healthier Medicaid program through managed care.”

American wisdom

Some words from the Founders

Editor’s note: Keeping the spirit of Independence Day, please read and consider but a small sample of the wisdom of our Founding Fathers.

f ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom — go from us in peace.

We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.

May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”

— Samuel Adams “Let those flatter who fear; it is not an American art.”

— Thomas Jefferson “Some boast of being friends to government; I am a friend to righteous government, to a government founded upon the principles of reason and justice; but I glory in publicly avowing my eternal enmity to tyranny.”

— John Hancock “The independence of America, considered merely as a separation from England, would have been a matter of but little importance, had it not been accompanied by a revolution in the principles and practice of government.”

— Thomas Paine “All men are, by nature, equal and free: no one has a right to any authority over another without his consent...” — James Wilson “It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow.”

— James Madison “No People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States. Every step, by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency.”

— George Washington “I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States.—Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.”

— John Adams
