#ncga: Bill tying Dale Folwell’s hands on state health plan slated for committee action Tuesday

  State treasurer Dale Folwell simply wants to introduce a little transparency into the relationship between health care providers and the state health plan: share some specifics about what you’re billing the plan, work with Folwell’s team to help control costs, and continue to be part of the team.      (Management of the state health plan was passed over to the state treasurer’s office some years back by the…

WHO is the REAL saboteur here?

  The cartoon character at NCGOP, who sits brooding in the dark between  CNN and MSNBC appearances, turned his fire and fury on ME and  this site early this morning.  Mr.  Woodhouse (the one registered Republican) apparently wasn’t amused by our most recent previous post:   Political parties raise money!!! Film at 11. Yes we raise funds to assist whomever our Candidates select. We are always raising money. The parties…

Struggling to keep the lights on

    Are you getting daily emails — that look a lot like Chinese-generated spam — begging for $4 to $10 donations to help “our candidate” in the “upcoming special election”?   We are.  And here’s an example:     The alias on each email is different.  But the address behind the alias each time also happens to be the primary source for external (outside Hillsborough Street) messaging for lil’…

BUSTED! Currituck pol gets tangled up with solar goons, earns censure, rebuke from colleagues

  It’s mighty, mighty delicious when a politician gets caught with his / her hand in the cookie jar.  It apparently happened THIS TIME in Currituck County — in the state’s upper northeast:   The Currituck County Board of Commissioners took the unusual step of censuring one of its members during its regular meeting Monday night.   The board voted 5-2 to approve a resolution censuring Commissioner Owen Etheridge for…

NC-09: Big Labor, radical left have bet BIG $$$$ on Dan McCready (and they’ll likely keep doing it)

  Democrats are working hard to sell us on their alleged clean-cut, GI Joe, patriotic-as-apple-pie, capitalism-loving, All-American Boy nominee in the Ninth Congressional District.  For all that spin, Mr. McCready sure does whip up a lot of excitement among folks nationwide and across the globe who appear to hate capitalism and what this nation stands for.   Dan McCready has proudly taken money from sources who proudly oppose US foreign…

NC-09: McCready took $$$ from George Soros-funded, reported terrorist-supporting PAC

  Front Page magazine, published by conservative activist David Horowitz, says J Street — a liberal Jewish PAC based in DC — is way too kind to George Soros and accused anti-Semite, actual member of Congress, and actual Dan McCready donor  Ilhan Omar: The Left’s rule of thumb is that when Jews accuse lefties like Corbyn or Omar of anti-Semitism, they’re just trying to “score political points.” But when lefties…

#ncpol: The party of Medicaid Expansion ????

  Yep.  The crew that convinced all those elected Republicans in Raleigh to become WHORES for subsidized solar shysters is now working to convince the NCGOP to include Medicaid expansion in that embrace.   SO sayeth ‘Toilet boy’ at the NC Insider:         You may remember that Shumaker and Stewart were the duo that saddled the NCGOP (and the rest of us taxpayers / ratepayers) with that…

NC-09: Not knowing when it’s time to shut up and go away (and getting smacked down for it)

  We’ve all known someone like Robert Pittenger. It could be an acquaintance, a coworker, a relative, a neighbor. It’s one of those folks who just doesn’t get that they’ve worn out their welcome and need to move on.   You would have thought Pittenger MIGHT have taken a hint when he barely escaped Mark Harris in 2016. But NO, he had to come back for more. Mark Harris finally…

NC-09: McCready accepted cash from radical Muslim loudmouth

  A freshman Democrat in the US House has already made a mark for herself.  Ilhan Omar — a Muslim Somali immigrant — has been  thrust into the national spotlight for alleged anti-Semitic rants.  And she’s made her mark in North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District race by making her candidate-of-choice clear:  Dan McCready. McCready’s own campaign  report to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) indicates he accepted $2,000 from the controversial…
