Letter to the Editor

On January 19 the NH State “Office of Planning and Development”, another of Sununu’s new bureaucracies, will hold a session to “educate” state reps about upcoming housing legislation. The OPD is nothing more than a taxpayer-funded lobbying group which, like the Housing Appeals Board, should be illegal. They are pushing for passage of bills that give more of your tax dollars to favored developers to flood your little towns with ugly, unwanted stack’n’pack housing.

The Housing Appeals Board — which by the way for you libertarians who love to run crying to the state for your “rights” — has heard few, if any, appeals from ordinary homeowners about the free use of their property. Instead, this 3-person group of appointees has sided 95% of the time with developers against voters of towns in which those developers appealed planning and zoning decisions that were not favorable to them. Put plainly, those town meeting votes were nullified.

Governor Sununu pays much lip service to local control but in truth, continues to defy it by pushing state takeover of local zoning and planning decisions. Every time one of his Bolshevik-style bills gets defeated he creates another bureaucracy to effect an end run around the legislature.

Zoning and planning decisions belong to the towns and not some unelected, accountable state agency made up of industry hacks. Every town office should be challenging the HAB and taxpayer funded lobbying in court. Every voter should complain to their legislators and governor.

Biden’s Agenda Leaves the Welfare of Americans Behind

by Alex Foryan, Landaff, NH

We are into winter and people are struggling financially to heat their homes. Due to Biden’s policies, oil prices are high, our strategic oil reserves are low and are being depleted and we have inflation and job layoffs.  Biden’s administration has stifled drilling and stated that all coal plants will be shut down. As our fuel prices soared, he then begged OPEC for oil and recently Venezuela. Now think about this. Venezuela has a ruthless dictator and Biden wants to give him money for oil  instead of putting it into our own country?  He can open up drilling, create jobs (and bring back the ones that were cut), and make us energy independent (just like Trump was doing!). Fuel prices would drop which would help businesses and consumers alike. This in turn would bring down prices of goods and services, thus helping our economy. Instead Biden and his administration are more focused  on getting rid of fossil fuels. Their  UNREALISTIC radical green energy agenda is more important to them than the welfare of American citizens who cannot afford to heat their homes.  Meanwhile we have sent over 18.2 BILLION  to Ukraine! This is so ludicrous! What is all of this money going to exactly?  How about using some of that money here to help our own citizens during these tough times? Additionally, our southern border is wide open thus allowing illegals to pour into our country daily. Guess who will be supporting them? The American taxpayer, of course. Biden’s actions are crippling our country and directly affecting the lives of American citizens. One would think that the President of the United States would do things to help his own people.  Apparently those things are nowhere to be found on Biden’s agenda.


Next Meeting, “Enemies Within”

Our next NGCRC Meeting will be held this-coming Monday night, March 14, 2022 at the Littleton Elks Lodge, #1831, 42 Main St., Rte 302, Bethlehem, NH commencing at 6:00 pm with our Social ½ Hour featuring delicious fruits and snacks. Thanks to NGCRC Vice Chairwoman, Janice Novak, for organizing this delicious treat, and thanks to all the individuals who have volunteered their time and efforts to provide this unique feature to our monthly meetings.

As always, our Main Presentation begins at 6:30 pm with a few Opening Ceremonies, and then this month’s feature presentation, this eye-opening, documented video entitled “Enemies Within” by New Zealander Trevor Loudon. He has spent many years of his life to study and document this “Deep State story” to the American public. This is a scholarly, well-worth-your-time presentation about the inner workings and behind-the-scenes characters who sit in our Congress and in many other departments of our US Government…making OUR LAWS and spending OUR MONEY!!

Can your U. S. Congressman / woman pass an FBI Background Check? Look closely to see if you see any familiar faces!

No interruptions. No speeches during the video.

NGCRC Gun Raffle Chairwoman, Samantha Cross, will give a Gun Raffle Update after the video.
