The Republicans were once proudly known as the anti-slavery party. If the Democrats keep on their current tack, they will be known not just as the abortion party but the infanticide one.

We think a lot of Democrats actually welcomed the bizarre black-face saga of Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam over the weekend.

It took a lot of the media play away from his statements concerning a liberal abortion bill that would make current late-term abortion law look like child’s play.

One of the sponsors of the bill (since defeated) answered “yes” when asked if her bill would okay the killing of a baby AFTER its delivery.

When Northam was asked about it on a radio program, he said that a baby with severe defects that had somehow survived an abortion attempt could, with the consent of the mother and her doctor, be kept comfortable and left to expire.

Pro-abortionists have been pushing for more and looser “late-term’’ abortion laws at the state level.

They are worried that the U.S. Supreme Court may review its ruling that referenced “viability’’ in a day before ultrasound showed that an unborn baby is, yes, a baby unborn but nonetheless a feeling, living being.

If the abortionist party fails to denounce ANY limits to baby-killing, it may find itself with a new name.

A Dartmouth college student who wants to become a member of the town select board has a bit of a problem. He will be returning to his home state this summer, when the election will be held.

What does it say about New Hampshire government priorities that it adds a new and unnecessary office (see related editorial today) but can’t provide its Site Evaluation Committee with someone to open the mail and inform the public about public hearings?

How on earth does Fidelity Investments intend to add 475 jobs in New Hampshire without the assistance of the state’s new Office of Outdoor Recreation Development? Or is the company, which is hiring 4,000 people nationwide, relying on this latest government office to reel in recruits?

This week’s arrests in connection with the former Youth Development Center in Manchester should have no bearing on the future of the John H. Sununu Youth Services Center, its contemporary. The allegations are of sexual abuse from decades ago. More power to Deputy Attorney General Jane Young …

Pembroke Academy’s athletic director no doubt has the right to dismiss his track and field coach for refusing to follow official protocols regarding mask-wearing by spring track and field athletes. If competing schools are following the mask rules, a maskless Pembroke team might have an adva…

The Wall Street Journal did a superb job of calling out President Joe Biden for his hypocrisy regarding changes to state voting law in Georgia — unless, of course, Biden intends to also have America boycott the next summer Olympics in Communist China.

New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner knows a thing or two about election law. His concern over a Democratic bill now before the U.S. Senate (and supported by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan) is legitimate.

Just in time for Holy Week, a so-called “rapper” gained much attention for himself by selling pairs of Nike sneakers with, he claimed, the distinguishing characteristic of a drop of blood mixed into each pair. “Satan shoes,” he called them.

Gushing comparisons of President Joseph Biden’s latest spending proposal to the U.S. moon landings or the building of our interstate highway system fail to impress. The latter two needed to happen. Much of what Biden suggests is wildly irresponsible and wholly unnecessary.
