The week is full of events including the Biker Build-Off / Motorcycle Displays & Demos / Charity Rides and Group Rides / Band Concerts and Music / Fireworks at the Weirs on Wednesday / and of course, the Races!  If you don't want to miss any of the activities, or are just curious about all the events...For the 2014 BIKE WEEK EVENT SCHEDULE - CLICK HERE !

All of us at WASR wish you and your family a happy Memorial Day!

Americans all across the country will be celebrating and observing the real reason for the holiday weekend on Monday…to honor those who gave their life and those who served our country in the military to make our freedom possible.  Be sure to thank all veterans you see.  

In the United States this weekend is also the unofficial start of summer, with lots of seasonal businesses opening and lots of people on the road to be with family for beach going and barbecues.  Be safe.

Top Rated Dennis Miller is popular on WASR... Weekdays at 3:00pm.

White House press secretary Jay Carney indicated the OBAMA administration may not cooperate with the new House select committee investigating the unanswered questions surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi, even refusing to answer a direct question about it.  

Jay Carney told reporters, “We have always cooperated with legitimate oversight.  All of the seven separate investigations, all of the committees that have participated in this investigations, all of the administration personnel, he added.  

Yet, as we now know, the White House withheld documents like the email that directly links them to what appears to be a cover-up to protect the President in his re-election bid.  It took a lawsuit by the group Judicial Watch using the in a Freedom of Information Act in a lawsuit to obtain the document and make it public.  

This is just the latest example of how the Obama administration has been anything but transparent as they promised to be.  Basically, the citizens of this country are getting no answers or resolutions to any of the numerous scandals facing the Obama administration.  American’s are getting fed up with it.  Hence, the President’s approval rating is in the tank.  

Last week, House Speaker John Boehner announced he would appoint a special committee in light of  the new revelations that White House staffers played a role in shaping the talking points used by then-United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice on various Sunday shows that blamed the attack on an anti-Muslim video.  Rep. Trey Gowdy will chair the select committee.  

America has had enough of the runaround…

IT'S TIME FOR STRAIGHT-FORWARD ANSWERS FROM OUR PRESIDENT AND THE WHITE HOUSE !

NH NEWS:   One of NH’s largest oversight organizations looks at NH’s Leading Ladies and asks, "WHAT ARE THEY HIDING"?

Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement: "As New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley correctly asserted in 2008, Granite Staters have always expected their elected officials to be accessible. However, a lot has changed over the years. Democratic Governor Maggie Hassan, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, and Congresswoman Annie Kuster have certainly not made themselves available to hear what New Hampshire residents think about the important issues. While they are quick to hold fundraisers and attend partisan functions, not one has hosted a real town hall meeting in years. In fact, some of the aforementioned elected officials have never hosted a single one. That's just wrong."  

"While these four 'representatives' might be quick to ignore our request, we hope they will at least consider listening to Mr. Buckley's plea for them to be available and open with their constituents. Until they do, with so much effort being put into avoiding Granite Staters, it begs us to ask the question: What are they hiding?"  

The web video we are releasing today titled, WHAT ARE THEY HIDING (click to view) is just a fraction of the clips our organization has collected over the last year displaying the true disregard these individuals have for those whom they are supposed to represent."
