New Hampshire – Lessons Learned

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on

nh 1As the candidates now focus on South Carolina and Nevada in preparation for Super Tuesday, what have we learned from New Hampshire?


And what we have learned is far more than just who won, who lost and who placed where. There is a whole lot more to the lessons of New Hampshire than that and to fully understand the landscape of the race for the White House, we need to do a dissection of what transpired in New Hampshire.

Trump won. We all pretty much knew that before the first votes were cast at midnight Tuesday morning. It came as no surprise even to those of us who are nauseated by Trump and his total lack of substance or any viable, articulated plan.

Bernie Sanders, the avowed socialist came in first on the liberal/socialist side of the primary and that too was a foregone conclusion as he was a light year ahead of Hillary in New Hampshire throughout the run up to Tuesday’s primary.

Who Has the Substance and the Vision?

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on

vis 1If America is to continue to be what Ronald Reagan described as, “the shining light on the hill,” what we need, what we must have, is leadership. True leadership. We must have the sort of leadership that holds the vision of the Founders and Framers in the highest regard and the sort of leadership that realizes that our Constitution regulated government, not guns, placed strict limits on the power of the presidency rather than on the power of the people and made government accountable TO the people rather than making the people accountable to the government.

2016 could well be our last chance to reclaim the vision of our Founders and Framers. It could well be the last opportunity we have to save our exceptionalism and to save our liberties.

What we need, what we must have, is the sort of leadership that is laser focused on what’s best for the nation, how to rebuild our place on the world stage, how to implement national security, rebuild the trust of our allies and how to stop our economic bleeding that is the result of too much government interference in every aspect of our personal lives, too many government mandated regulations and far, far too much government waste in our government’s spending habits.

From the left side of the aisle, the candidates are Bernie Sanders, a confirmed and admitted socialist and Hillary Clinton, a corrupt politician who is under numerous investigations that could, should and I believe will result in indictments including espionage against the United States.

Recapping the Hawkeye Cauci

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on

ic 1Okay, the Iowa Caucuses, or Cauci (the plural form) are over and what did we learn from the fracas?


We learned that a full 43% of Iowans identify themselves as socialists and of that 43%, they had to toss coins in order to determine which of their socialist candidates would be awarded which socialist delegates. Hillary (soon to be indicted) Clinton squeaked out an extra delegate over Bernie (I intend to hike your taxes beyond bejesus) Sanders.

And how did those coin tosses go? Well…Hillary won 6 in a row. The last time a Clinton got that lucky calling heads or tails…it was Bill…with Monika.

The ‘get off my lawn” voters can relax though as Sanders will win the communist vote by a wide margin next week in New Hamster…er…New Hampshire.

That is what we learned on the government needs to take care of us from cradle to grave side of the aisle, but what was it we learned on the RIGHT side of the American aisle?

Dying to Vote This Year?

Well, well. This will come as no surprise, great or otherwise, to conservatives but  it is sure to have liberals heads bursting as they search haplessly for a way to apply spin.

In the New Hampshire primary, just a couple of days ago, dead people were allowed to vote.

Think what you will of James O’Keefe, like him or hate him, he has a way of digging to the bottom of the barrel to get to the tactics of liberals.

O’Keefe, who exposed ACORN and others, has now shed the light of truth on voting practices in New Hampshire.

O’Keefe sent people into the polling places and had them state a certain name. The name of someone deceased.

Yep. They were registered to vote.

In each case, according to O’Keefe, the person asking for the ballot also offered to show ID.

In each case, the person was told no ID was necessary and yes, they WERE indeed given the ballot.

O’Keefe’s people did not vote. They walked out of the polling places without casting the ballot.

Bachmann’s Campaign Falling Apart?

Well, it seems Michele Bachmann’s quest and campaign are nearly finished. Reports are filtering in that her entire paid staff in New Hampshire, the location of the 1st in the Nation Primary, has quit.

It seems to be true that all 6 of the staff she has had in New Hampshire have walked out the door. Bachmann has been laser focused on Iowa and that may well be the reason.

According to New Hampshire State Legislator, Fran Wendelboe, “It certainly underscores the impression that New Hampshire isn’t a priority for her. She’s totally written us off.”

Early reports claim the staff was citing a lack of focus on New Hampshire as their reason for locking the door behind them.
