RebuildNH Advocates Peaceful, Civil Action Against Federal Usurpation of State Sovereignty

EAST DERRY, N.H.—RebuildNH organized a protest outside the Executive Council meeting this morning to show solidarity against the federal government’s efforts to force vaccine propaganda and U.S. Health and Human Services Department control over New Hampshire citizens, specifically a $27 million multi-faceted federal grant that the body was slated to vote on today.

Unfortunately, a handful of individuals not connected to our organization disrupted councilors as they attempted to attend to the people’s business. Despite efforts to direct public discourse by way of letters, emails, and peaceful demonstrations outside the building, these agitators were able to feed off people’s raw emotion and misdirect them.

“There are thousands of New Hampshire citizens who are angry and hurt because they are losing their jobs,” said Andrew J. Manuse, chairman of RebuildNH. “We want to be a vehicle for them to express themselves peacefully and civilly in order to restore the people’s liberty in New Hampshire. Admittedly, we poorly articulated our intentions for this meeting, and will attempt to communicate better going forward.”

RebuildNH organized concerned citizens to urge the Executive Council not to accept federal grants because of the strings attached. On page 17 of the grant documents, acceptance of the funds would require New Hampshire to: “1) comply with existing and/or future directives and guidance from the [U.S. Health and Human Services] Secretary regarding control of the spread of COVID-19; 2) in consultation and coordination with HHS, provide, commensurate with the condition of the individual, COVID-19 patient care regardless of the individual’s home jurisdiction and/or appropriate public health measures (e.g., social distancing, home isolation); and 3) assist the United States Government in the implementation and enforcement of federal orders related to quarantine and isolation.”

“We wanted the executive council to vote down this grant today and to stop the federal usurpation of state sovereignty,” said Melissa Blasek, executive director of RebuildNH and a Republican state representative for Merrimack. “Our members will continue to peacefully implore their elected officials to reject these federal funds and educate the public and elected officials about the harm they are doing to our citizens.”

RebuildNH will be advising members that future protest action should remain civil in order to effectively invoke change.
