In addition to charges brought against Gregg Hough by the Belknap County Republican Committee’s Executive Committee for “behavior unbecoming” (attempting to disrupt the October meeting by two now named men trying to get the Editor of the Weirs Times to cancel his invitation to be the keynote speaker to the BCRC at the last possible moment so as to cast disrepute upon the EC in an on-going action), there was a second issue concerning Gunstock Area Commissioner Douglas Lambert for “unwanted touching”, also during the October meeting – a criminal misdemeanor. Which, if GraniteGrok hadn’t been there to report on the meeting, would have gone unnoticed – and that has made GraniteGrok a target (heh – “there can be no opposition allowed”).
Here is the ‘Grok’s reporting of the November meeting where Douglas Lambert was confronted with the charges:
The General Membership voted to remove Douglas’ BCRC General Membership status after viewing the embedded video from the three different camera angles. Be warned – audio is very soft from the backward facing camera. The next two angles are far better.
I was sent an email accusing me, simply for providing the video of an assault (no matter how “slight” that’s what the Law has defined):
I don’t have to ruin anyone’s life – Douglas did a fine job of doing that to himself that fateful day 15 years ago – because of his own actions, done voluntarily, he had almost everything taken from him. I don’t have to destroy Douglas – his own words did it before and now his actions have done it again. REMEMBER! I defended him for all these years for calling Ray Buckley [the NH Democrat Party Chair] a faggot on the video stream I had constructed for our radio show on WEMJ when it was technically HARD to do so. And he threw it all away as he danced on the political high-wire when he did so. And the cancel crowd came for him with tar, feathers, and pitchforks when he fell off. They PULLED him off that wire and there was nothing I could do about it.
And now he has done it again:
- I did not force him to get out of his chair at last month’s BCRC meeting – he did that voluntarily
- I did not force him to go over and confront her – he did that voluntarily
- I did not force him to reach to grab for her phone – he did that voluntarily
- I did not force him to position himself in front of her to block/grab her viewithphone – he did that voluntarily
- I did not force him to look to his left and then to his right to ensure he was in position to do just that – he did that voluntarily
- I did not force him to look back to his right to watch her move to get away from him to continue to do what she was doing – he did that voluntarily
- I did not force him, upon him seeing her moving to his right, to dip his shoulder, flick out his right elbow, and physically initiate a contact that was impermissible – he did that voluntarily.
Much of my blogging is based on one premise – simply quote someone else’s words or write about their actions. Add some commentary. If people didn’t say stupid things or do stupid things, I’d have much, MUCH less to write about. Douglas just did both.
He was the one that ended our friendship – I don’t like getting screamed (re: your pictures of Douglas showing his anger (and evil) that I pulled down once I found out they were your IP) for asking a simple question: why do the same to others what was done to you? You were there – you most likely read my post and watched the video. That video and his behavioral told me that our friendship had just ended.
A simple answer would have sufficed – instead, he lost control of himself. My friend made it clear that he wasn’t my friend any longer – he did that voluntarily. He voluntarily became just another politician. An inconsistent one.
The kind of one that put himself back up on his high-wire act again thinking he was invincible and he could do whatever he wanted to whomever he wanted. Why not – he had just destroyed two decent men, Ness and Strang, for simply being on the “other side” and to get what he wanted. He believed Nobody could now challenge him. Been there, done that.
Remember, I already lived through this before – and had to suffer through the aftermath of what he had done. I am not going to allow a lady to suffer the aftermath of an unwanted touching – an intimidation which was his INTENT. The video that was presented to the BCRC showed that from 3 camera angles.
He did that voluntarily. I, like you do with your still photography, merely captured those moments in time. As you said earlier, YOU said that you respect me even if I’m on the other side at times – and I return that to you as well.
I also had prepared this for last week’s meeting – a bit more personal:
Enough of your JR High running for class president promising coke machines in every corner and ½ days for school, Douglas – your schtick is starting wear quite thin.
Once again, you’re on that political high wire that led you to fall off when you called NH DP Chair Ray Buckley a faggot at the end our Saturday show that was also his birthday and you received national condemnation. But that wasn’t the first time – nor, I bet, the last.
I am the son of an Irish drunk and the father of an addict (101st in Afghanistan) – I know how the addicted behave. Not that your’s is chemically induced but it IS Politically induced.
Remember your “Lug Nutz” remarks aimed at the Laconia fire Chief in your weekly column, Douglas, in the Sun? And others? And others during on Meet The New Press show? You lost everything and you retired telling me that you had to find your soul.
It took years for you to get to that point – and years of recovery from that fall. Now like all addicts falling off the wagon, you’re back to the same place but, like other addicts, it only took mere months to return to it.
I saw you cavorting and prancing at the Citizens for Belknap booth at Gilford Old Home day wearing that Democrat PAC’s T-shirt. You know, the Democrat PAC that called for Gregg Hough to be defeated? Gosh, you didn’t say much about that a couple meetings ago, did you, when you called GraniteGrok out for doing so – nor Sununu either? Yes, I saw you prancing around with that loopy, goofy smile that tells me you’re high on your politics.
You know, the same one that you had when you maneuvered the Gilford Selectmen to fire Evans Juris as Town Adminisrator? That same one as you writhed in laughter calling out Buckley?
The same one when you finally sat down from berating me for simply asking why have you were “canceling” both Ness and Strang even as it had been done to you, used your grandson as a political pawn, finally realized that you had lost control of yourself, and then sat down quite satisfied with yourself (video posted)?
BTW, Douglas, you said that local businesses would suffer if SoulFest didn’t happen this past summer (yet a political put up). NOW what are you going to tell them now that Tom Day’s months long legal efforts to break the SoulFest contract (I’ve posted the legal billing records) and there is no SoulFest at in the future? You never mentioned THAT effort, either, did you?
And in watching you demogoging the politically unsophisticated over and over with RESIGN! RESIGN! YOU HAVE VIOLATED YOUR OATHS! With same smile afterwards. Knowing that they didn’t know the foundations, the crowds had no clue, and you were using them as political tools.
The people here, however, are MUCH more politically aware and aren’t going to fall for that.
So here’s their Oaths both as stated in the NH Constitution and the GAC Bylaws – let me read them.
[Art.] 84. [Oath of Civil Officers.] Any person chosen governor, councilor, senator, or representative, military or civil officer, (town officers excepted) accepting the trust, shall, before he proceeds to execute the duties of his office, make and subscribe the following declaration, viz.
I, A.B. do solemnly swear, that I will bear faith and true allegiance to the United States of America and the state of New Hampshire, and will support the constitution thereof. So help me God.
I, A.B. do solemnly and sincerely swear and affirm that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all duties incumbent on me as …………………………………………., according to the best of my abilities, agreeably to the rules and regulations of this constitution and laws of the state of New Hampshire. So help me God.
Any person having taken and subscribed the oath of allegiance, and the same being filed in the secretary’s office, he shall not be obliged to take said oath again.
Provided always, when any person chosen or appointed as aforesaid shall be of the denomination called Quakers, or shall be scrupulous of swearing, and shall decline taking the said oaths, such person shall take and subscribe them, omitting the word “swear,” and likewise the words “So help me God,” subjoining instead thereof, “This I do under the pains and penalties of perjury.”
June 2, 1784
Tell me, Douglas (and Jade Wood who did the same thing – HOW did they violate their Oaths of Office? No, you don’t know – but you didn’t care, either.
IMHO, even if you are not officially part of the CfB, you certainly are in league with them – and being the student of Machiavelli, took advantage of the “opportunity” for your own personal benefit.
Congratulations – you learned EVAH so much for being on High Wire the first time, you just HAD to do it again.
Since you are the “Big Guy” behind the Bastion – who IS your money guy bankrolling it? Who IS on the Steering Committee of the CfB that calls out others to be “transparent” but refuse to do so themselves?
That’s not what non-partisan groups do, right Douglas?
Oh, and there’s more but I’ll wait on that.
