#ncga: Harry Brown for Congress ???

That’s the word on the street (at least the streets in the Third Congressional District).  I’ve heard from a number of movers and shakers in the 3rd district NCGOP who tell me they’ve heard from the North Carolina Senate Majority Leader and folks close to him about this. “This is not testing the waters,” one source in the know told me. “This is ‘I’m IN.’ ” If Brown does follow…

Meet The New Boss, Same as the old boss …

The Round Rev has moved on to bigger and better things on  The Soros plantation.  The NC NAACP has a new screaming preacher heading things up, and The N&O is giddy with excitement: With the North Carolina General Assembly scheduled to open a special session on Wednesday, the new state NAACP president will be at the state halls of power leading in protest just as his predecessor did. The Rev….

#ncga: Empower Women! (*By, um, running some women against some other INCUMBENT women?*)

The North Carolina Democrats and their minions in the driveby media are all over social media about all of the, um, ladies they have running for the NC House in  2018.  *That’ll fix those sexist pigs in power, right?* (Um, right?) Follow along with me and see if you notice the flaw in that spin: […] Rep. Darren Jackson, the top Democrat in the North Carolina House of Representatives, said…

Hudson A-Okay with gun-grabber alliance

Richard Hudson — portrayed so aggressively as a friend of the 2nd amendment — is surprisingly not alarmed at the combining of his concealed carry reciprocity bill with a package favored by gun-grabbers: The first procedural vote on legislation combining a popular concealed carry reciprocity bill with a ‘Fix NICS’ bill was held on Wednesday, and key player Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) is defending combining the two pieces of legislation…

The N&O and Dallas, sittin’ in a tree …

I have to say it’s quite unusual to see a Republican getting cuddly kid-gloves treatment from The N&O.  Richard Morgan got it — during his time as Jim Black’s co-conspirator in the NC House.  If you’re a Republican thumbing your nose at the platform and pissing off conservatives left and right, the drive-bys looooooooove you. Over Thanksgiving came this love letter to everyone’s, um, “favorite” cartoon character:      …

#ncpol: Rabies tests on tap for NCPolicyWatch crew?

His buddy is moving on to bigger things. But Rob Schofield is still here, foaming at the mouth over a web site he helped put out of its misery: […] Art Pope’s Civitas Institute is out with another “you can’t make this stuff up” doozy this morning. The fun folks who gave North Carolina an anti-Semitic online hate rag known as the Carolina Plotthound are now attacking that nefarious commie plot, Giving Tuesday.[…] So,…

Government bullies and the First Amendment

When you take cash from the government at any level — even though they confiscated it from you and your friends and family initially — you should expect to be giving up SOME freedom. But two different cases here in North Carolina showcase government entities possibly overstepping their bounds. First, we have the case of the Uwharrie Volunteer Fire Department in Montgomery County.  Here’s Fox News: A fire department in…

How is THIS not party disloyalty?

We’ve all heard about the railroading the ‘Haywood Five’ got from NCGOPe leaders.  Sharing a humorous libertarian T-shirt design on Facebook.  Questioning the RINO tendencies of a local elected Republican.  THAT kind of thing.  Now, it appears our two Republican US senators are joining the Swamp effort to sink the Senate candidacy of Alabama GOP nominee Roy Moore.  Sinking him results in a Democrat being elected.  Sounds — and looks…

#ncgop: Fur flies (and so do emails) in Woodhouse-Womack spat

Slander [alleged]. Libel [alleged].  Freebies and Freeloaders at the top of the party food chain [alleged].  Sketchy accounting on party FEC reports [alleged].  Grab some popcorn and a comfortable chair, folks.  Saturday’s NCGOP executive committee meeting could be downright FUN. Here’s the latest in the ongoing, um, “discussion” between executive committee member Jim Womack and NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse: On Fri, Nov 10, 2017 at 5:22 PM, Dallas Woodhouse…

How to respond to mass murder? Disarm even MORE law-abiding people!

The politicians and the chattering class are reacting as expected in the wake of the terrible tragedy over the weekend in Las Vegas.  Never mind that the local sheriff pointed out that the episode could not have been prevented. Most law enforcement types will tell you that violent criminals tend to be — for the most part — cowards.  They are more likely to go after someone weak and defenseless…
