NH Federation of Republican Women Dear Bill,

This is the final week to sign up for next week’s reception on May 6th with Corey Lewandowski,
and I encourage anyone yet to purchase a ticket to do so soon, as tickets are limited! 

On Wednesday, we watched Joe Biden’s blunderous address to the nation on his first 100 days in office. President Biden began his term at the White House by hosting a sluggish Covid-19 response while refusing to engage in clarifying dialogue with state leadership. He went on to target the pockets of Americans with his non-infrastructure, infrastructure plan – with a $2 trillion dollar tax hike. Since less than 10% of the plan went to actual elements of infrastructure, it’s no surprise he’s already released a second plan – this time with a price tag of $4 trillion dollars. This is the last action that should be taken against families and small businesses financially recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, Vice President Harris’s refusal to visit our southern border has led to a critical state of crisis, and Harris laughs while states directly suffer from her lack of leadership. As the radical left applauds the failures of Biden and Harris, Republicans will continue working to earn the votes of Granite Staters and take back U.S. House and Senate Majorities in 2022!

Republican Leaders Reject Washington Infringement on 2nd Amendment Rights
Concord, NH- House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) and Chairman of House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee Daryl Abbas (R-Salem) released the following statements after the Criminal Justice Committee passed SB154, prohibiting the state from enforcing a Presidential Executive Order that restricts or regulates the right of the people to keep and bear arms, on a vote of 11-10.
House Majority Leader Jason Osborne:
“After much discussion in Washington over the last few months about Executive Orders that would severely restrict our Second Amendments rights, it is abundantly clear that something has to be done. These potential Executive Orders, or any laws enacted by Congress, would impede New Hampshire citizens’ basic rights to defend themselves.”
“New Hampshire’s firearms laws are clear, and as a result, we are consistently ranked as one of the safest states in the nation. This bill would do nothing to change our current laws, it would simply say that New Hampshire rejects Washington edicts and we will not be enforcing them.”
Chairman Daryl Abbas:
“New Hampshire should not be required to enforce federal laws and executive orders from the President of the United States that restrict the rights to bear arms that are inconsistent with New Hampshire’s laws and traditions.”
 
“If these out of state federal politicians enact policies infringing on our second amendment rights here in New Hampshire, that is their agenda and they should take responsibility for enforcing their agendas especially when the people of New Hampshire have historically rejected these types of infringements.”
###Republican Spotlight : Ben Mickens 
In this week’s republican spotlight, we are highlighting Ben Mickens. Raised in California, Ben decided to attend college in New Hampshire at Saint Anselm College. On campus, Ben takes part in their honors program, as well as the Abby Players.  Now a Junior, Ben was elected as the state’s College Republican’s Chair. 
It is important that young people get involved in politics because they are the future of America. The work that Ben Mickens will be doing is setting the stage for a successful future – with strong leaders, there are people bound to follow. He demonstrates leadership by maintaining open communication with his peers. 
Thank you, Ben Mickens, for all of your hard work. We are excited to see the energy you’ll bring to New Hampshire’s College Republicans, and wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

First In The Nation

By now, I’m sure that many of you are aware of the Democrats’ bill HR1, a push towards a total overhaul of our voting system, and not for the better. HR1 is a threat, not only to our First in the Nation Primary, but to the integrity of our elections, and ultimately to the rights of the states to govern themselves. Make no mistake, this is legislation which will have far-reaching consequences, beyond this upcoming election.

 What the Democrats are deceptively calling the “For the People Act,” is, in reality, a transgression against Granite Staters. Federalized elections, taxpayer funded campaigns, a ban on voter ID, attacks on election integrity, these things are only the tip of the iceberg. HR1 would implement numerous measures which have already been rejected by the New Hampshire legislature, including a mandated 15 days of early voting, universal no-excuse absentee voting, and automatic voter registration. These ultimatums do nothing to ensure free and fair elections, but open the door to fraud, and set a precedent of Federal overreach. Democrats, both nationally and locally, have no interest in election integrity, only in maintaining and abusing their own authority.

 Both of our Representatives, Chris Pappas and Ann Kuster have already voted in favor of HR1, while Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan have signaled their support. In doing so, our representatives have not only taken a stand against New Hampshire law, but also taken the first steps toward ending one of our most significant traditions, our First in the Nation Primary. 

Since 1920 the Granite State has proudly served as the first state in the nation to hold its presidential primary election. Though Republicans and Democrats alike have historically defended our First in the Nation status, it now appears that the Democrats are ready to abandon this tradition. Our Secretary of State Bill Gardner has called HR1 “an egregious overreach of federal authority,” and says it will “put our Presidential Primary in a perilous position. Meanwhile national democrats like Harry Reid and James Clyburn have already made clear their intent to find a new home for the nation’s inaugural primary. In abandoning First in the Nation, New Hampshire Democrats have shown their loyalty, not to their constituents, but to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and their Democrat cronies in DC.

It is vital that we take action, and defend New Hampshire’s first in the nation primary before it is too late. Please, take this opportunity to sign our petition, defend New Hampshire traditions, and call on our Federal Legislators to REJECT HR1. The New Hampshire GOP is holding our Federal Delegation’s feet to the fire with our latest TV and Digital Ad – please help us extend our TV and Digital Advertisement with a contribution today. By supporting our efforts, you ensure that our message reaches more eyes, and sends a clear message to Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen that New Hampshire stands against HR1.

 Sign the Petition to Defend FITN!

From the Desk of Chairman Stepanek

Democrats are doing what they do best: using our mental health crisis to push their extreme agenda to restrict our rights to keep and bear arms. Democrats both Nationally and locally will continue to push their agenda at the cost of your rights – it’s time to put a stop to this.

As they took back control in D.C. in January the Democrats made it clear that new gun control legislation was an integral part of their agenda. In early March, H.R. 1446 was introduced to the United States House of Representatives, a bill which imposes erroneous restrictions on the Second Amendment. States like Colorado sadly have the most stringent gun control laws on the books but they unfortunately do nothing to prevent criminals from obtaining firearms. These laws only infringe on law-abiding citizens’ right to self-defense – the very same patriotic citizens who might prevent tragedies. These proposal just move us one step closer to what Democrats have long sought: a national gun owner registry.

It is ironic that the people parroting the phrase “Common Sense Gun Reform” don’t know the first thing about the right to keep and bear arms. Squad Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) was recently quoted as saying, “The trauma of gun violence in our communities is endless. It’s time we abolish the filibuster and pass meaningful gun control legislation – background checks, automatic weapons ban, gun licensing, and so much more.”

No, Congresswoman Pressley, gun violence is not endless and it’s happening mostly in cities run by Democrats. Any firearm owner could tell you that background checks are already in place. Automatic weapons have been banned in the United States for nearly 40 years. They let slip what they’re really after – an end to the filibuster, and free rein to pass whatever legislation they would like.

 Here in New Hampshire, our local Democrats are no different. Just last year they tried to force through a “Red Flag” law which would have allowed an individual’s firearms to be taken by any judge without due process. Thankfully

that bill and other pieces of legislation that infringed on the Second Amendment were vetoed by Governor Chris Sununu. More recently Congressman Chris Pappas has promoted #GunReformNow on twitter, and Ann Kuster has co-sponsored the aforementioned H.R. 1446. If the Democrats have it their way and retake the New Hampshire Legislature in 2022, you can be sure that these radical policies will crop up once more.

 By contrast, New Hampshire Republicans are taking steps to preserve our Second Amendment and Article 2a rights – even against infringements by the Federal government. Earlier this month, Republicans in the New Hampshire Senate proposed Senate Bill 154 which prohibits the enforcement of any Presidential Executive Order which restricts or regulates the right of the people to keep and bear arms. We view our Second Amendment and Article 2a rights not simply as important rights, but fundamental ones.

Can you donate $20, 22, $50, or even $100 today to help us protect the Second Amendment and Article 2a right here in New Hampshire?

 We need to stop the Democrats and their gun grab both in New Hampshire and in D.C. and we need your help to do so. The Democrats are asking for an inch, but they will take a mile as soon as they can. Once your rights are gone, they’re never going to come back. We need your support to fight back against their agenda before it’s too late.

 Regards,

 Stephen Stepanek
NHGOP Chairman

P.S. The Democrats are using any excuse necessary to get what they already wanted – gun control. They are already exploiting the tragedies in Colorado and Georgia to propose sweeping gun-control measures which would never have prevented these acts from happening, and would only serve to harm law-abiding citizens. We need your support to fight back and stop the Democrats’ proposed gun grab.

DEFUND DIVISIVENESS

Free Signs & Stickers to support HB544

In our recent webinar on critical race theory, we talked about the divisive concepts being taught in our schools and government institutions. House Bill 544 is aimed at preventing the use of taxpayer dollars to teach those hateful and divisive ideas. 

New Hampshire’s chapter of 
No Left Turn in Education has printed up hundreds of SIGNS AND BUMPER STICKERS, available for FREE to people around our state who want to show their support for this bill. To get your free signs and/or bumper stickers, please e-mail Mike Breen.

Misinformation

There is misinformation being spread about HB544.  It is NOT anti-free speech and NOT racist. Those are Democrat talking points. It is anti-marxist indoctrination (with your tax dollars).
 
An email was sent out by the House Majority Office to the Republican State Representatives. I encourage you to take a look, it is located under the State Representative page.

Thank you,
