#ncga: Devil in the details …

House Republicans have a group of young guys and gals holed up at NCGOP HQ implementing the caucus campaign strategy (buying ads, issuing press releases, etc.).  Sometimes the individual legislator campaigns take care of stuff.  Here’s one example from Facebook that has some heads all across #NCPOL land being scratched:…

Low-info Left not Holding back on George.

The same crowd that gets threatened by statues and thinks the US DOJ is interested in how many of your family members voted for The Evil Pant-Suited One™ in 2016 has got a new one they’re trying out — this time in North Carolina’s Second Congressional District race: First of…

Bob Steinburg is bringing you some quality college basketball to watch IN PERSON:  Arkansas State, Eastern Illinois, UNC-Wilmington, and Gardner Webb. What?  Don’t find that prospect exciting?  We thought…

*Call me CRUSHED. Call my dreams SHATTERED.*

Tim Boyum, the politics guy on that channel that always seems to be playing in  medical office waiting rooms, dropped this political bombshell today:   Just to make it clear — I WILL NEVER RUN FOR PRESIDENT, EITHER. (Just in case anyone was interested.) Thom Tilli$$$$ will have a whale…

#ncga: HD-51’s Sauls about as conservative as his Dem predecessor

Meet The New Boss.  Same as the old boss. Folks in Lee and Harnett counties who thought they were voting for a change in 2016 DID NOT GET much of one.  They traded a Democrat House member, Brad Salmon, for a Republican named John Sauls.   If you check the…

RINO crackdown on conservatives extends south of the border

Those of you in Haywood County who have been PNGed by the NCGOP — those of you who have been threatened with losing your party position for daring to comment on THIS site (or share posts from this site on social media) — take heart.  Just south of us in…

#ncpol: Folwell to UNC Health Care: [REDACTED] you!

One thing we like about treasurer Dale Folwell is that he takes guff from NO ONE.  He doesn’t play the Raleigh back-scratch game, and the crowd there hates him for it. Check out the latest from the University of North Carolina — fresh off of standing down while leftist criminals…

#ncpol: Just gonna leave this RIGHT HERE …

It’s been interesting to see and hear all of the North Carolina Republican big-wigs tearing Judge James Wynn a new one for his ruling against North Carolina’s congressional districts.  (Case in point, see below.) Of course, we agree with Mr. Blaine on his assessment.  We always have. But not all…

Silent Sam vandals now seeking to topple Chapel Hill cop

Just as we’ve been warning you, the statue is only the beginning — the tip of the iceberg: A Chapel Hill police officer has been put on paid leave following questions about a tattoo on his forearm of the Roman numeral three encircled with stars. “The pervasiveness of the concerns…

#ncga: David Lewis, ETHICS LAW chairman ???

I stumbled across this gem today: Ethics Law Chairman?  I knew Lewis was the big elections kahuna for the House.  But putting him in charge of ANYTHING akin to ETHICS??? (Yikes.) Let’s review, shall we? December 2015:  Lewis was the subject of an ethics complaint — alleging pay to play…
