#ncga: What about Bob?

Rep. Bob Steinburg called this site out on Facebook over the weekend — encouraging us to watch a Facebook live video called #straighttalkwithbob.  Of course, we got intrigued and tuned in.  We got treated to about a half-hour of pure nonsense.  It was worse than those rambling al-qaeda video threat-grams from ayman al-zawahiri.  It was akin to an awful lot of the YouTubed 9-11 Truther / Beware-the-Bilderbergers political diatribes we get emailed about from activists all over the country on a daily basis. (*THANKS, YouTube.*) The graphics at the top of the page have not been altered.  These are stills…

#ncga: Steinburg’s windmills under-performing, hurting Navy ops

State Rep. — and wannabe state senator – Bob Steinburg makes no bones about his support for government-subsidized solar and wind energy.  Here he is just last year: A group of North Carolina legislators want to see a recently opened wind farm in Pasquotank and Perquimans counties shut down over what they say is interference with military radar. […] One coastal legislator not on the list of signatories was Rep. Bob Steinburg, R-Chowan, whose district includes the wind farm project. Steinburg told CRO Wednesday that he would fight any move to shut down the wind farm unless he saw any solid…

#ncga: What’s a little election LAW between friends?

Remember Dallas calling everybody seeking warm bodies to put their names on the May ballots?  Who needs actual party-building when you can play the whole Potemkin village,stalking-horse game?  *What could go wrong?* Anyway, it appears the little cartoon character has struck AGAIN: Sen. Jeff Jackson, a Mecklenburg County Democrat, could be the only state Senate candidate running unopposed after the county’s Board of Elections rejected the candidacy of Republican Nora Trotman. Trotman says she’ll appeal the decision, which came in response to two complaints claiming she is ineligible to run as a Republican in Senate District 37. One complaint was…

*WWJD?* (Give ALL his cash to Dallas!)

  Here we are on one of the holiest weeks of the Christian and Jewish faiths.  Offering plates are being passed all over America to support all sorts of good works. Even “the reverend” Woodhouse is passing the plate this weekend (via your email inbox):   So much chutzpah, so little shame.  But, hey, what do you expect from Brad’s baby bro? A better move — at least from a PR standpoint — would have been  to lay off the shakedown for a few days, and instead issue warm wishes to everyone on this special week.  (Crank the shakedown efforts…

Leftist wacko Dem: Ted Budd “training mass shooters”

Leftists and their drive by comrades seem to enjoy parsing every single syllable posted on social media by elected Republicans and elected Republicans.  But what about drivel disseminated by leftists on these same platforms?  Like THIS, for instance: “May be training mass shooters”  ????   *Awfully nice to stick “may be” in there, when he really wants to say “IS.”* *Coming next: Ted Budd “may be” beating his wife.*  (Let’s not forget that the guy who shot up the congressional baseball practice was a Bernie Sanders fan.  Or the fact that the Unabomber was an Al Gore fan. Two guys…

#ncpol: “Republican” Charles Jeter teams w/ Common Cause re:”gerrymandering”

Charlie Jeter.  During his time in the House, he racked up a record as the most liberal Republican.  Yet, he got elected conference chairman and was a close ally of Speakers Thom Tillis and Tim Moore. Ol’ Charlie would regularly screw his GOP colleagues on votes or just simply disappear at voting time.  He had a Democrat operative working out of his private business offices. He got sued for non-payment while his trucking business was crashing and burning. All signs were pointing toward him losing his Democrat-leaning seat.  But, being the “team player” he is, Jeter waited to resign when…

#ncpol: Rip Van Morrill vs. Clarence Thomas

Somebody needs to wake Jim Morrill up and tell him it is no longer 1991.  Yes, dear readers, 27 years after the fact — The Charlotte Observer’s Jim Morrill is trying to derail the career of Clarence Thomas.  He penned a lazy piece of tripe that let Angela Wright, an Anita Hill wannabe, rant unchallenged about a great American and brilliant jurist.  I worked on The Hill during Thomas’s confirmation hearings.  I don’t know how now-Justice Thomas stood it.  The guy took more abuse and public humiliation than any one person should have to.  If you ever wonder why more…

#ncga: And the Senate $$$ …

NCFEF has also looked at Senate campaign cash.  Again, as with the House, these are year-end 2017 numbers and only take into account what folks with active campaign committees reported. Senate Republicans reported $3.86 million in cash-on-hand.  Democrats reported $1.23 million on-hand at year-end. Top fundraisers?  Of course, Phil Berger led the way for the GOP side (and the chamber) with $968,925.17.  Sam Searcy, Democrat challenger in District 17, leads all Democrats with $499,967 on hand at year-end. For a full year-end report on all Senate candidates who had committees at year-end, click HERE.

#ncga: Threats, a primary, and a lawsuit.

You wonder why more people don’t throw their hats in Raleigh’s poltiical ring. Dare County Republican Beverly Boswell campaigned as a conservative and has served as a conservative.  She hasn’t minced words.  And that has made her a lot of enemies. The ACLU and their environmental wacko allies are coming after her with a lawsuit demanding documentation of EVERY communication and interaction she has ever had with anyone in her district.  She’s picked up a primary challenge from a GOPe-type.     Here her opponent is explaining why he got into politics: […] I served as the vice-chair of the Currituck Chamber…

#ncga: “My senator bought me a fur coat!”

Moore County is entering a brave new world with its THIRD state senator in six years.  Tom McInnis (R-Richmond) is the incumbent in our new district.  He’s going to be facing a primary from the mayor of Whispering Pines.  Just in case McInnis makes it back to Raleigh, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of what to expect: Yep.  THAT is Vancine Sturdivant with McInnis –  sporting her brand new fur coat she says the senator got her for Christmas.  Here’s a better picture: Sturdivant is the chairman of the Anson County Democrat Party.  She’s also an Anson…
