Flag Day ‘Flag Waving’

The Northern Grafton County Republican Committee will be conducting a Flag Day event honoring the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

At the time of the Revolutionary War in 1775, many colonists were not fighting under the colors of a single flag, but under their own flags.
The Second Continental Congress created the Continental Army, a unified colonial fighting force, which led to the creation of the first “American” flag, which was known as the “Continental Colors.”

This flag was comprised of 13 red and white alternating stripes and a Union Jack in the upper-left-corner which was similar to the British flag.  General George Washington rejected the idea of a flag which even remotely looked like the British flag!  

On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress took a break from creating the Articles of Confederation, and passed a resolution stating that the “the flag of the United States of America be 13 stripes, alternate red and white, and that the Union in the upper left-corner be 13 stars white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

In 1885, Bernard Cigrand, a small Wisconsin teacher, originated the idea for an annual flag day, to be celebrated across the country every June 14th.
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson marked the the anniversary of that decree by officially establishing June 14th as Flag Day.  The American flag is synonymously referred to as “The Stars and Stripes” as well as “Old Glory.”

Please bring your own flag, and join the NGCRC in honoring our flag on June 14th at the Mascoma Bank Knoll across the street from the Littleton Opera House from 12:00 pm, noon, to 2:00 pm, rain or shine.

And, remember the NGCRC will be conducting our monthly meeting that later that night at 6:00 pm at the Littleton Elks Lodge in Bethlehem

Chairman’s Update

Just a brief update to let you know you’re not forgotten, and your NGCRC officers are still breathing!! Staples is issuing COVID vaccine card laminations for free!  Had mine done yesterday!

There is just SO MUCH going on since “Lyin’ Biden” took office in January, 2021!!  I will begin by asking you, respectfully, to do something, which I never thought I’d ever do in my entire life, but that is to BOYCOTT baseball, Coca-Cola, Home Depot, United Arlines, UPS, and other businesses who are caving in to the “CANCEL CULTURE and LIBERAL LEFT.”

Lyin’ Biden and Stacey Abrams and their cronies are trying to keep the voting laws in the state of GA “loosey-goosey” so anyone and everyone can vote…..No ID required!  Lyin’ Biden stated unequivocally and authoritatively that the polling places will be closed at 5:00 pm which is erroneous!  The state of GA is tightening up their voting processes to make them fair and consistent for all GA voters. Hope NH does the same!!! Businesses with headquarters in Atlanta, after being “shamed,” “bribed,” and “held captive to the ‘Cancel Culture Crowd’,” are caving in to their demands.  We must fight back.  You can call their corporate offices, or just stop buying their products to send a message…do business, not politics!  “Go WOKE! or GO BROKE!”

Please be aware of the controversy over the new conditional hire of James Gleason, new Littleton Town Manager, conditionally.  He has an explicit Facebook page in which he refers to members of the NRA as the “Nazi Rifle Association.”  very divisive, plus more.  All in tomorrow’s Courier.
Tomorrow, the NH House of Representatives will be holding floor votes on pro-gun measures, HB 307 and HB 334.  Please contact your representative, and ask them to support these bills.  

HB 307 allows anyone adversely impacted by an ordinance or regulation to file suit against the county, city, town, or government entity that enacted the violation (after notice is given).  So, I guess, if you target-practice on your own property, and it offends somebody, they can sue the town?
HB344 allows ATV Carry”…allowing carry of a loaded firearm on an Off-Highway Recreation Vehicle or snowmobile.

Please be aware that Nancy Pelosi is trying to take away NH’s long-treasured “First in the Nation Primary.”  NH Secretary of State, William (Bill) Gardner, who is a Democrat, has come out strong against “Queen Nancy” and her Cronies saying, “Don’t mess with NH!!”  more in the Union Leader.

Trump has many new products with the words, “Miss me yet?!”  I think we should buy some, and sell for the NGCRC.

Right-to-work in NH (SB 61) “….will result in more jobs, better wages, and more freedom for New Hampshire’s workers,” according to NH House Labor, Industrial, and Rehabilitative Service Chairman Will Infantine (R – Manchester), and “….workers should not be coerced into paying union dues just to hold a job,” according to NH House Majority Leader, Jason Osborne (R – Auburn).  Support SB – 61.

Australian TV has continued to expose the weakness and corruption of the Biden Administration.  It refers to Biden as: “illiterate, incoherent, and cognitively deficient.”  Gee, we all knew that here in the States! 
75% of the American voters DEMAND voter ID, but Democrats want to destroy election integrity!!

CBS goes after Gov DeSantis on issuing contracts for COVID shots in FL, but it backfires!

Biden = Bernie Sanders on STEROIDS !  Open Borders!!  Higher taxes!! He is NOT the Moderate he portrayed himself in the debates!!
Biden’s $2.25 Trillion Stimulus Plan will cost everybody money in new taxes for many years to come.  And, you’re not immune if you have a 401K, an IRA, and other retirement plans.  Incidentally, HB 274, introduced by O’Brien, Cushing, and Rosenwald in southern Nh would “….require all NH taxpayers to pay for the poor performance of the NHRS, 1.1% (ROI).

Disgraceful images from the southern border due to the Biden Open Border Policies….and they want to talk about Trump’s policies!  Give me a Break!

Next NGCRC meeting, Monday, May 10, 2021…Elks Lodge, near the Co-op off Cottage St.  “Social 1/2 Hour,” 6:00 pm; Regular meeting starts sharply at 6:30 pm.

Yours, in The Cause, to elect Republicans, And KEEP New Hampshire RED!

Nick De Mayo, M. Ed.
NGCRC Chairman
