What Does New Hampshire Mean?

New Hampshire... What Lessons for Us...

By Joe Kerry


  • Up until 1992 it was an absolute barometer of who was going to win the Presidency; prior to 1992 the person who won NH went on to eventually win the White House; in 1992-BILL CLINTON lost New Hampshire to Paul Tsongas (remember him?) but went on to win the Presidency; in 2000 GW BUSH lost NH to none other than JOHN McCain but also went on to win the White House.


     

  • In 2000 McCain won the NH Republican primary but imploded in South Carolina-why? In New Hampshire, INDEPENDENTS get to vote in the Democrat and Republican primary-and in 2000 GW BUSH beat McCain among registered Republicans, but INDEPENDENTS, who accounted for 41 percent of the total GOP turnout, tipped the GOP primary to McCain;


     

  • Yesterday's primary tells a VERY SIMILAR STORY: among those primary voters who identified themselves as REPUBLICANS McCain won 34% to Romney's 33%--so among the party faithful a very close contest; INDEPENDENTS however went for McCain 39% to 27% McCain over Romney. According to exit polling data 37% of those voting in the Republican primary self-identified themselves as INDEPENDENTS-more than enough to tip the primary to McCain-so the loss, on this basis, is not as BAD as the loss, on its face, would suggest.

New Hampshire Voting Tid-Bits

Why were the polls so wrong? Some polls, right up until the voting showed Obama with a double digit lead over Clinton-then Clinton pulls out a win-a few reasons for this:

  • 14% of Democrats voting didn't make up their mind until election day-so pollsters had no way of knowing who this decisive group of people were going to vote;


     

  • Obama is pulling in tens-of-thousands of new younger voters who are registering to vote and telling pollsters they are going to vote; unfortunately for Obama, this same group of voters is notoriously known for "overpromising and under-delivering"-they tell pollsters they are going to vote on primary day-and they tell them they are going to vote for Obama-but in NH, unlike Iowa, this group couldn't push Obama over the top;


     

  • One theory also working the rounds is that with Obama's lead being in the double digits, many liberal independents opted to vote for McCain in the Republican Primary in order to undercut Romney's momentum-thereby guaranteeing a prolonged and protracted GOP fight


     

  • Women Came Home. Unlike Iowa where Clinton lost the female vote to Obama by 5%, in NH Clinton beat Obama 46%-34% (foxnews);


     

  • All Evangelicals are NOT alike. In Iowa, Mike Huckabee cleaned up on the evangelical Christian vote. In NH, exit polling data showed that Huckabee received only 32% of their votes compared to McCain who pulled in 31%. (Note: compared with the Iowa caucuses, where 60 percent of Republicans described themselves as evangelicals, exit polls in New Hampshire put evangelical turnout at about 21 percent),


     

  • Romney's loss is greater than appears on paper. Over 60% of New Hampshire residents watch news channels from Massachusetts-so Romney has had a lot of exposure there given his former position as governor of that state-but despite all of that exposure for so many years-he was unable to pull out a win-that's a very bad sign-especially when you consider he outspent-Michigan, where Romney's father was once governor is fast becoming a MUST win state for Romney.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
