AMAC Exclusive – By Seamus Brennan
Fresh off a successful ad campaign in Arizona that helped inject new life into the state’s newly competitive Senate race, a conservative Super PAC has now expanded its campaign to New Hampshire to target Senator Maggie Hassan, another endangered Democrat seeking reelection this fall. In Arizona, the PAC scored a big win when Republican Senate candidate Blake Masters adopted the PAC’s “extremist” theme, which the PAC debuted in Phoenix TV spots against incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Kelly. The group is now taking a similar message to New Hampshire, hoping to surface Hassan’s extreme voting record in the closing weeks of the race.
While focusing on Hassan as a “key enabler” for Biden who votes with him 96 percent of the time, this new TV spot also hits Hassan particularly hard for her support of the federalization of U.S. elections, which would allow Department of Justice bureaucrats to jeopardize New Hampshire’s jealously guarded first-in-the-nation status in presidential primaries. The PAC says that this ad template—which had previously been used in New York in addition to Arizona—“cracks the code” against Democrats like Hassan and has thus aroused donor interest in additional states.
The ad also takes aim at the New Hampshire media’s dutiful use of Democratic Party talking points (with a screen showing newspaper headlines) and implores the local New Hampshire state media to stand up to the corruption of the national media and to end Hassan’s “free ride” in the press.
“Hassan was so afraid of a left-wing primary challenge she even went along with empowering Department of Justice bureaucrats to end New Hampshire’s greatest tradition,” said George Landrith, president of Frontiers of Freedom Action (the PAC that is airing the ad), in a press release. “It is incredible she isn’t even being asked about her far-left voting record and especially her votes to endanger the presidential primary.”
“Everything she says and every TV spot is out of the DC consultants’ playbook,” Landrith continued. “Who’s running her campaign?” The ad charges that Hassan has used “scripted lines” and that her “whole campaign” is being run from Washington, D.C., by left-wing consultants, and is being financed by liberal dark money.
This November, Hassan’s Republican opponent is former U.S. Army General Don Bolduc, who Landrith called in his statement “credible and likable in his interviews.” Bolduc, he said, is “one of those soldiers who has become a great candidate. But he must use the ‘e’ word, because the ‘extremist’ charge really cracks the code against Democrats like Hassan for the simple reason that it’s the truth—and the truth actually works in politics. Her voting record shows she cared more about the approval of the media and the left-wingers who threatened her with a primary than that of her New Hampshire constituents. She can’t claim to be a moderate.”
“We think the New Hampshire media wants to be fair, but they can’t just repeat Democratic talking points. They need to give General Bolduc a hearing and ask Hassan some tough questions like those in our TV spot,” Landrith stated.
The ad’s release comes shortly after group aired similar TV spots in New York and Arizona markets, criticizing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Arizona’s Mark Kelly as having made a “corrupt bargain” with the national media—and especially the far-left wing of the Democratic Party—which was hailed by one conservative news outlet as the “greatest campaign ad of all time.” The ad displays an image of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other members of “The Squad” with the headline “CORRUPT BARGAIN,” suggesting that the far-left wing of the Democratic Party and billionaire donors have scared Senate Democrats like Hassan into moving further left than their constituents wanted.
Like the New York and Arizona TV spots, the first minute of the Arizona spot focuses chiefly on the media for trying to cover up left-wing corruption, displaying headlines about media scandals and smears—including its suppression of the COVID-19 lab leak theory, censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop bombshell, promotion of the Russian collusion hoax, coverup of Hillary Clinton’s email scandals, and refusal to report on Biden’s blackmailing of the Ukrainian government. The ad also catalogues other political smears, like those against General Michael Flynn, students at Covington Catholic High School, and parents protesting anti-Americanism in their local schools.
The ad goes on to blame the media for elevating Joe Biden to the presidency by letting him run “from his basement” and “covering up his incompetence and ill health.” It then attacks Biden as “the worst president in modern history,” and features videos of him falling up the stairs on Air Force One and taking directions from the Easter Bunny at a White House event with the headline “EASTER BUNNY RUNS WHITE HOUSE EVENT.”
Around the halfway mark of the two-minute TV spot, the ad begins labeling Hassan as Biden’s “key enabler,” noting that she votes with Biden 96 percent of the time and “cast the deciding vote on huge spending bills that cause shattering inflation and recession”—referring to the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” which economists predict will even further aggravate inflation and raise costs for New Hampshire families.
Additionally, the ad notes how attempts by the likes of Biden and Hassan to alter the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Senate, American citizenship, and the Electoral College represent a “scorched-earth, rule-or-ruin” attack on longstanding American democratic institutions.
“The GOP has never gotten across to the people how those bills would have destroyed the secret ballot, put Department of Justice bureaucrats in charge of our elections, abolished citizenship rights, packed the Supreme Court into irrelevance, radically changed the U.S. Senate, and would make only a few states matter in presidential elections by abolishing the Electoral College,” said Landrith.
Like the two ads that preceded it, the two-minute New Hampshire spot is followed by a one-minute “chaser” version that summarizes the longer version. “These are not 30-second attack ads that try to manipulate people, but heavily informative narrative ads that work particularly well with Independents, women, and young people who appreciate being given context and a story that put a larger perspective around the issues,” said Landrith.
As Republicans seek to win back control of the Senate this fall, New Hampshire could prove to be a pivotal state in what is widely expected to be a close election cycle. Should Landrith’s strategy succeed, it could prove instrumental not only in helping the GOP win back Congress, but also in helping a Republican Senator get elected in New Hampshire for the first time since 2010.
NH is my immediate neighbor as I live just west in VT, another out of control blue state run by the Democrats for better than ( 50 ) years running, despite the fact we have a Republican governor sitting in a House full of Democrat Snakes, both houses are Democrat controlled & a make believe RINO governor Phil Scott whom consistently votes alongside his fellow anti-American Democrat lawmakers in order to get along… The man is an abject failure on this score alone…
NH isn’t much better off with their RINO governor, i.e. Sununu… Maggie Hassan needs to go ASAP, the opportunity is there come Nov. 8, 2022… I wish General Bolduc all the best as the next NH Senator.
VT needs to rid itself of the avowed socialist Bernie Sanders as well…Congressman Peter Welch is another radical left winger looking to take Senator Leahy’s spot as Senator after his term finishes up & to that I say good riddance to Leahy only to in all likiyhood to be replaced by just another career politician that replaces him, i.e. more of the same BS…So who replaces Welch’s spot as Congress?
Months before anyone began running campaign adds in VT, along comes another left wing Democrat radical to the extreme running to replace Welch’s spot, one Rebecca Balint, with millions of dollars of OUT OF STATE PAC money pouring in long before any Republicans announced their running for office…
This is one of the deep dark secrets the Dems use in Montpelier to run those exorbitantly expensive TV adds, on every major network including YouTube adds, they cover all the bases…
I really do hate politics now more than ever beginning shortly after Trump’s landslide victory against the Hildabeast in 2016 & again in 2020 after resoundingly defeating the ” Basement Dweller ” & yet he loses the election, however 76 million voters know otherwise after all the PROVEN 100% illegal ballot dumps occurred in those ( 6 ) Key States in the wee hours of Nov. 4, 2020 between the hours of 1:00 am & 5:00 am & just like that Comatose Joe garners 81 million votes, securing the ” Steal of the Century ” with the FULL backing of the DOJ, i.e. the FBI, aka The Federal Bureau of Insurrection…
As it stands right now, the entire northeast is BLUE, including NH, despite the fact NH is ( 1 ) of ( 38 ) states that DO NOT allow CRT in their K -12 public schools…NH’s GOP lawmakers did their respective jobs, despite the onslaught of radical Democrat policies that spell ruin for any state that follows these Marxist ideologies with a sick enthusiasm…
Amazing how now a few of Democrats want to try to be fair in these campaigns that have had super millions sent in to try to beat out the Conservatives WHY as in Georgia. Warnock has been on TV with ads for months who is giving this big money? WHY? VOTERS have to decide if you want to continue this worst economy in years then who to vote for ? If you are okay losing money weekly then keep with this Puppet Pres who is told what he has to do and we are suffering? So if they continue on abortion and forget the economy and CRIME do whatever? Shut down of a few states that hurt millions want more of this again and our kids out of schools lost in learning SAD.
My extremist views got you jobs, safe streets, and money in the pocket. Your views got us debt, credit card dependent, foreclosures, recalls on stuff, less pay to take home, so much more but, hope you’re the wealthy ones.
Senator Kennedy from Louisiana made a great comment. “You can’t fix stupid but you can vote it out.”
I live in Messachusetts (no spelling error) next door and I see Hassans “alternative facts” ads all the time. She claims to be “the most bipartisan Senator” . But I love that sometimes the Republican ad appears right after, correcting it, saying that she votes with Biden 96 percent of the time ????. Then she has some guys dressed in county sheriff’s uniforms claim she helps “fund the police”. What a joke she is!
Putting their women up as window dressing.
I’ve noticed Democrats’ ads attacking Republicans on abortion rights, trying to paint them as extremists against women. It’s going to take ads like described here to fight back.
THAT, people, is why the “progressives” should be whomped for persuading THE STUPID PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY to change from the state legislatures selecting senators to a “popular” vote in 1912-13 for those of you who think the “progressives” only popped up a few years ago. STUPIDEST thing the states ever did, giving away the control of their primary right.
In 1913 There were not enough states to support the 16th Amendment to make a way to pay the Federal Reserve System when debt started racking up. That is how long they have been cheating and end running the Constitution.
I’d be elated if all Democrats (Communist Party) lose.
Federalizing elections would require a Constitutional Amendment!
In actuality, the progressive could establish de facto nation control nibbling at the edges of de jure processes.
Interesting in the upcoming sitting of the Supreme Court is the question of state legislative hegemony over elections. A decision favoring state control would all but eliminate the possibilities of federal meddling with state election procedures.
Without getting into the specific arguments, it is important to note that the Constitution is direct in its specification that the states, and only the states, are entitled to set the terms of their election processes. The constitutional statement grants the state legislature argument a degree of legitimacy as the starting point of the discussion.
Both liberal and conservative PAC’s need to be heavily regulated so they can be held accountable for the content of their campaign ads. They also should have to list donors and how much each donor contributes. They should be regulated like political campaign committees are. I believe they should be outlawed completely. The Supreme Court needs to revisit their ruling on PACs that PACs are protected under the first amendment. A person can’t yell fire in a crowded theater. However PACs can put out false and hateful attack campaign ads!
Where in the 1st Amendment do you find regulations of PACs? Campaign laws are abhorrent to the 1st Amendment!
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
While I agree 100% with your assessment of the First Amendment, experience has proven that PACs cannot be trusted to offer the truth to the people.
I go as far as refusing to allow prior restraint, there needs to hold PACs accountable for false statements, and criminally accountable for knowingly and willfully lying to the public with their tax-exempt dollars.
I’m not sure how we square that up with the First Amendment, but we should, at least, have a meaningful discussion of the problem.
The rub comes in who gets to determine what is false.
For more than four years the left peddled outright lies to The People through leaks from the DoJ and the FBI. And, while it was not a close cabal of conspirators that orchestrated the fraud, “the Conspiracy” was able to dominate the public consciousness and contributed significantly to skewing the 2020 election.
It is absolutely disgusting that these agencies have been able to sweep the deception under the rug with only one FBI agent punished with a slap on the wrist for fraudulently submitting an doctored piece of evidence to the FISA court.
To date, the Durham investigation has been as meaningless as the one conducted by Robert Mueller. It is an embarrassment to anyone who believes in justice.
these are the sacrificial pigs the dems are “pushing out there” to be purged from the partay!
I have been fighting against Maggie Hassan for years. She is sending out slick flyers several times a week lying ab out Don Bolduc and her own record. She never listens to her constituents but does what she wants. She is an activist through and through.
She plays follow the leader. She follows the far left over 96% of the time just look at her voting record. The sad thing is over 50% of voters only believe what they read instead of just look it up
Why is it that EVERY white country is forced to be multicultural/multiracial?
Why is it that EVERY white country is told to end its own race/culture?
No one asks that of ANY non-White country. Immigration/assimilation is FORCED upon ONLY White countries.
Anti-Whites call themselves “anti-racists” but their actions lead to the elimination of only one race, the White race.
The purpose of “anti-racism” is to genocide White children.
Multiculturalism is a code word for White Genocide.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
I understand your frustration, but there is no such thing as. “white” country. This rhetoric is unhelpful.
but there is such thing as law and order of the country you’ve voluntarily came to in search of better life. Problem is the white guilt with which we’ve been beaten over our heads for decades No one dares to speak of butchery committed by other races toward their own
It’s not truly about race it’s about the culture, by diving the people, using race, a nation can be conquered from within. And you sir, I fear by the words you have chosen to use are helping the very people that wish to destroy our Nation and culture. I graduated from the USMC school of higher learning, the one thing I know for sure is no matter the skin color an American bleeds red. It’s time we all start putting our nation and culture first, (a melting pot of peoples and skin color toward one goal, a strong United States of American), we can practice this and it will work. Has in the past, till the many different words for communism and it’s believes came to our shores. That and the failure of reconstruction at the end of the division of the union, has caused what we face today. May the true God of the universe give or Nation and people strength and guidance to throw this out of our Nation.
What ever you say ,plantation must be kept going because without it overseer will not have a job and what will happen to all All Sharptons and co
I agree with you ???? % very wil said
Hassan is simply following the DemocRat Party manifesto. Which means absolutely how she will perform as POTUS as it is fed to her by the DemocRat politburo. There is probably a long list of potential DemocRat candidate for POTUS assuming that the politburo can rig the election as was done to elect Joe HIdin’ Biden.
