The final debate in WBIN’s series was held last night between Ann Kuster (Democrat) and Charles Bas (Republican Incumbent) running for New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District. Again the panel questions were excellent as well as the moderator. Kuster behaved in a far better manner than at a previous debate where she actually took the microphone from Bass during his closing statement. Apparently being on live television forced Kuster to act like an adult rather than a petulant child – something that she’s become known for throughout New Hampshire. Each candidate touted their stances on the issues and fired back at one another when comments were made as is par for the course in debates; however, Kuster seemed to really just parrot Democratic talking points and lies rather than think for herself. A few of the highlights are below.
- Kuster is for a single payer government controlled healthcare plan but lied during the debate and said she meant ‘via insurance companies’. She apparently hasn’t read Obamacare because she didn’t seem to understand that there are many new taxes in the bill that will necessarily hurt the working and middle classes.
- Of course Kuster parroted the same $6,400 Medicare lie that all Democrats seem to be repeating. It’s a lie, it’s been debunked and it shows she doesn’t bother doing her research and simply believes whatever Obama and company tell her.
- Kuster also tried to frame Bass as a ‘party line’ voter except his record proves that he doesn’t vote with Republicans all of the time. Bass has voted along with Democrats on many bi-partisan bills in Congress. Apparently Kuster ignores his voting record when it doesn’t agree with the false picture she’s trying to present.
- Kuster’s biggest whopper of the night that she kept repeating over and over that it was thanks to the Tea Party and Republicans that nothing has gotten done in Congress. In reality, the House has gotten many bills passed in a bi-partisan manner but it’s Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid who refuses to even bring these bills to a vote. These bills include many job creating bills. Senate Democrats simply don’t want any bills to pass that will help the economy. In fact, the most bi-partisan votes in Congress since Obama’s election have been against Obama’s far left wing agenda. Kuster can keep repeating this lie over and over but it will never make it true. It’s just another Democrat talking point.
- Another ridiculous parrot by Kuster is the ‘huge tax incentive for companies who ship jobs overseas’. Americans have heard this from Obama and many Democrats who apparently know nothing about business. The truth is that it is only a minor tax deduction for moving costs . It would only bring in $168 million over 10 years if taken away. There are far more serious ramifications for overseas operations but those don’t seem to fit into the talking points rhetoric of Democrats, especially since under Obama the United States now has the highest corporate tax rate in the world.

Maggie Hassan, Democratic candidate for Governor has a slight problem – her record. Hassan was a New Hampshire State Senator for several years before being voted out in 2010. One of the reasons was due to her ‘taxing’ problem. While Hassan may like to claim she won’t raise income or sales taxes, she certainly loves raising all kinds of other fees and taxes that necessarily hurt the working and middle classes in New Hampshire. She has specifically said she will raise taxes and fees and actually believes the voters will like it. From the Portsmouth Herald:
Hassan said before anyone can talk specifics about taxes, the state needs to evaluate its revenue and determine its funding priorities, but she did say there are multiple tax cuts that could be reversed.
“There were a lot of back-of-the-budget tax cuts that the Republicans put into this last budget that we’re going to have to review and look at,” she said. “When you look at some of the back-of-the-budget tax cuts and other tax cuts the Republicans made the last two years, I think there are some things that most taxpayers of New Hampshire would agree that we could restore.”
Unfortunately Hassan is serious. She actually believes that taxes should be raised on New Hampshire residents even during this abysmal recession that her dear leader Obama has kept this country in for almost 4 years. Hassan was booted out of the State Senate in 2010, in all likelihood due to her love for raising fees and taxes. New Hampshire residents enjoy the freedom of a small government and paying less in overall taxes than their neighboring states. Apparently Hassan hasn’t gotten the message.
While Hassan was in the State Legislature, she raised taxes and fees over 33 times. Those are 33 reasons alone not to vote for her as Governor. Those were 33 reasons alone she was voted out of office. From an ad paid for by the Live Free PAC:
“Two years ago, voters rejected Maggie Hassan’s tax record – voting her out of office,” a female narrator says. “As Senate Majority Leader, Hassan pushed a budget with over $300 million in higher taxes and fees, 33 tax and fee increases, a controversial new tax on small businesses, higher taxes on rooms and meals [and] increased fees for vehicle registration. Even a new tax on camping! Maggie Hassan believes in high taxes. New Hampshire doesn’t.”

According to the Boston Globe Democrat John Walsh believes that doing laundry is a woman’s job: “The chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, rallying state delegates before the Democratic National Convention, today said that Senator Scott Brown tried to portray himself as “an honorary girl” by folding laundry in a TV commercial targeting women voters.” Seems that John Walsh forgets that this is 2012 and not 1950. Interesting coming from a man who pretends to be all about women’s rights. Actually it is even more insulting that he used the term ‘girl’ in his politically correct world isn’t it? So much for the party that likes to claim they aren’t sexist. Walsh will fit in well with other sexist Democrats at the convention.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz made a sexist fool out of herself when she called the females speakers at the Republican National Convention ‘shiny packages’. Apparently to Wasserman-Schultz a former Secretary of State, three sitting Governors, a Mayor, an Attorney General, a U.S. Senator and a former Lt. Govenor are nothing more than shiny packages to have on parade. Wasserman-Schultz has the typical mentality of the loons at NOW who aren’t feminists but another arm of the left wing.
And then there’s Bill Clinton (accused of rape; settled a sexual assault claim; multiple sexual assault claims; and predator of young interns while in the White House). It’s clear misogyny lives long and prospers when it comes to Democrats. The party that tried to accuse Republicans of enacting a ‘War On Women’ clearly hasn’t sent the message to their leaders that sexism isn’t OK. The fact that Bill Clinton is the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention says all you need to know about Democrats and their true thoughts on women.

Apparently Debbie Wasserman-Schultz isn’t a big fan of small children or breastfeeding Mommies.
According to the Washington Post:
A number of local chapters of the National Organization for Women are denouncing the DNC convention rules, saying that they unfairly exclude mothers with young children. …
The group of southern California chapters of NOW are pointing to the lack of childcare at the conventions, as well as the difficulty female delegates have in bringing children to the convention floor. According to the activists, the DNC is requiring young children to have credentials to come onto the convention floor with their parents.
“Moms with young children 6 years of age and under who cannot be left at home, some of whom are breastfeeding, are relegated to second-class status within the Democratic Convention, unable to participate as a delegate due to antiquated policies and inadequate accommodations that were apparently in place before Women’s suffrage,” Susie Shannon, a delegate to the 2012 DNC Convention.
Exactly what type of credentials does Debbie expect children to have? Is she going to demand ID like the Massachusetts Democrats did at their convention?
Democrats and hypocrisy are nothing new but Maggie Hassan takes it to a new low with her announcement that Bill Clinton will be supporting her run for New Hampshire Governor on the Democrat ticket . There’s no doubt that Bill Clinton is a misogynist. His abuse of women with his power as a politician was clear throughout his career, including as President of the United States. No interns were safe from the predator-in-chief (note: Monica Lewinsky was just one of many according to the book ‘The Whistleblower’ by Marinka Peschmann). How is it that women who are Democrats can continually hold this man up as some type of ‘women’s rights’ hero after all that he has done to prove otherwise. A woman who claims to fight for women’s rights has one of the biggest misogynists in political history backing her and she believes that’s a good thing?
It’s not that Bill Clinton only had one case of ‘inappropriate behavior’, there were several. It’s not that ‘Slick Willy’ lied about his sexual affair with intern Monica Lewinsky; it’s that he abused his power. Apparently liberal women can ignore the fact that the man (using that term loosely) held the highest position in the United States and was married. What they cannot ignore is his continuous misogynistic behavior throughout his career and the abhorrent way in which he and his political machine sought to destroy any woman who tried to tell the truth about it. How any woman can support such a man in general is questionable but the fact that they seek his support at all shows how little they really care about women’s rights.

According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistic numbers published today, there are now 780,000 women collecting unemployment. That number continues to rise with no end in sight. Obama’s economic policies continue to fail and are continuing to hurt women. There are more women out of the workforce than there were when Obama took office and that number keeps growing as well. Unemployment for women is at 8% (in Bush’s last month in office it was only at 6.5%). It’s clear that Obama’s economic “war on women” continues.
The participation percentage rate of women over 16 years old in the workforce is at one of its all-time lows. The other all-time low since before 2002 was also during Obama’s reign. It’s currently at 57.8%; the low under Obama was 57.6%. This means that only 57.8% of women are participating in the workforce out of the 100% that could. A number even more startling is the fact that almost 4 million women are out of the workforce since Obama took office. These are women who could be working but are not and are not collecting unemployment.

Since Obama took office, 766,000 women have lost their jobs and are no longer in the workforce. Rather than focusing on jobs to put these women back to work, Obama is pushing his Paycheck Fairness Act. Even though there are already remedies for women regarding discrimination in pay, Obama and Democrats have decided that they need to clinch the ‘women’ vote so have brought an unnecessary bill into the limelight. If anything, the Paycheck Act will hurt women more. It opens up businesses for frivolous lawsuits and will make businesses think twice before hiring women.
Under the Equal Pay Act, women can bring charges against their employers if they feel they have been discriminated against in their pay due to gender. In 2008 .html there were only 954 cases of gender pay discrimination brought to the Equal Employment Opportunity Center – of those cases 56% were found to have “No Reasonable Cause” – in other words – the EEOC could not find evidence to back up the woman’s claims. Only 7.9% of the cases were found to have “Reasonable Cause”, in which case the EEOC will fight to remedy the situation for the complainant. Of the millions of women who are in the workforce a very miniscule number have actually filed complaints against their employers. Not because they can’t file the complaints but because they do not feel they are getting discriminated against in their pay.

The New Hampshire Democrats hosted a fake “War on Women” rally in Concord yesterday. According to the site, paid for by the NH Democrats, www.nhwomenunited.org(if you look up the domain registration on whois it was purchased by NH Democrats ) it claims to: “Help defend women’s rights and pursuit of equality. Join Americans all across the United States on April 28th, 2012, as we come together as one to tell members of Congress in Washington DC and legislators in all 50 states, “Enough is enough!””
Interestingly the only issues their website discusses are abortion and forcing religious entities to pay for birth control. There is nothing about the extreme poverty rates that women are in under Obama’s economy nor is there anything about the massive numbers of women now unemployed under Obama’s economy. Of course the fact that this was all funded and created by the NH Democrats isn’t listed anywhere on the website (this is what Nancy Pelosi likes to call “astroturf”).
The rally was nothing more than a campaign push for Obama and other Democrats who have the same big government failed type policies. Apparently the NH Democrats don’t realize that when polled, the most important issues for women today are jobs and the economy . As a matter of fact, abortion and birth control are at the very bottom of the issues that are important to voters. Abortion isn’t going away and birth control is cheap to purchase. Planned Parenthood isn’t going away and they don’t need taxpayer money to survive.
In light of the recent scandalous and outrageous EBT fraudulent abuses in Boston and around the state, it’s high time Beacon Hill starts discussing the Democrats’ failed ‘War on Poverty’. In a welfare state such as Massachusetts, where even illegal aliens get free health insurance and housing courtesy of the taxpayers, it’s long overdue to question the feeble attempts by lawmakers to continue the abusive programs that are not helping people and are hurting taxpayers. The original intentions of ‘welfare’ were as a temporary ‘hand up’ to help those who were in desperate need due to circumstances out of their control. That is no longer the case in Boston or anywhere else in the country. Democrats have created an entire segment of society which consists of people (their voting base) who believe that they are entitled to housing, food, clothing and healthcare paid for through the taxes taken from others who actually work for a living. This failed ‘War on Poverty’ is really a War on Taxpayers.

I did not write all of this but her story is amazing. She is an example to ALL women and ALL human beings and her strength, courage and story should be remembered by everyone. It also shows you how some people in this world care little about true heroism and more about political idiocy.
REMEMBER THIS WOMAN!!!
Look at this woman – Let us never forget!
The world hasn’t just become wicked…it’s always been wicked.
The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving. …
Irena Sendler Died 12 May 2008 (aged 98) Warsaw, Poland
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a plumbing/sewer specialist. She had an ‘ulterior motive’. She KNEW what the Nazi’s plans were for the Jews (being German). Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids). She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.
During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.
She was caught, and the Nazi’s broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won — for a slide show on Global Warming. President Obama won 2 years later after being President for only a few short months.
