NCGOP’s new secret weapon for 2020? (Um, Pat McCrory’s nephew.)

  Dallas better watch his back.  He’s got some competition in the never-ending race to embarrass the NCGOP. And that new competitor is none other than  young Patrick Sebastian  —  best known, and really ONLY known, for being former Governor Pat McCrory’s nephew. Young Patrick is starting to get more…

NC-09: Getting those stories STRAIGHT ….

  Do they want a new election or NOT?  Is the appearance of Republican cheating more significant than the more abundant and much-better documented evidence of Democrat cheating? The circus to allegedly and finally bring the congressional election to an end kicks off this coming week in Raleigh.  While the…

#ncga: Why do Berger & co. keep ham-stringing efforts to get non-citizens off NC voter rolls?

  We get a lot of lip service from Raleigh Republicans about supporting border security, election integrity, and President Trump.  So, why has the GOP-controlled Senate blocked THREE TIMES a serious effort to clean illegals off our state’s voter rolls? Perhaps it’s thanks to some Farm Bureau PAC money scooped…

Deep Thoughts: FBI probe target’s cash & the NCGOP

    After our last story,  some knowledegable folks in the areas of law enforcement and the practice of law asked some questions of us (likely rhetorical, methinks). The drivebys described the subpoenas regarding Greg Lindberg and Eli Global as  dealing with: “an investigation of drug offenses, crimes against financial institutions,…

Ma Cotten, Dallas & Grandpa seeking FBI probe target’s $100K sitting in Chatham GOP coffers?

    A mean old man.  A mean old woman. Their clueless grandson.  And covert attempts to snag $100K in cash from the target of an FBI probe.  Sounds like a winning Hollywood screenplay or one of those cheap airport paperbacks. Actually, it’s yet another scandal-in-the-making at NCGOP HQ.  Here’s…

NC-09: DEMs put (at least) $126K on the streets of Robeson County in 2018 for McRae Dowless-like ops

  For one of the poorest counties in the state, there sure is a lot of cold hard cash floating around on the streets.  Especially in the run-up to election day. While the media has been feigning shock and awe over the reported $7K paid to Bladen County get-out-the-vote (GOTV)…

#NC-09: Where’s the report?

  The newly-seated state board of elections is preparing to take on allegations of vote fraud in the Ninth Congressional District.  We’ve heard that the state board staff has been  working tirelessly behind the scenes gathering info while the legal and political warfare over the board went on. Well, we…

Grey skies over WRAL-TV …

  David Crabtree is made to apologize on-air for what sounds like an extramarital affair.  Veteran weatherman Greg Fishel resigns with a statement that reads like something cooked up by the HR department and lawyers. ( And Laura Leslie — #blessherheart — is STILL employed.) WRAL also got into a nasty…

Media SOOOOOOOOO Wrong on NC-03, post-Jones

  It’s one thing to smack around the drivebys for being stupid and inaccurate.  It’s a travesty when  the folks allegedly on OUR SIDE are doing the same.  Case in point, the frenzy over who will replace the late Walter Jones, who is being laid to rest this week. John…

Silent Sam = um, HITLER ?????????

  Yes, that is another fine piece of logic emerging from the home county of the flagship campus of our state university system: An Orange County judge will no longer hear Silent Sam cases following comments she made comparing the Confederate statue to Adolf Hitler and placing blame for the…
