Judicial Watch to NC: Clean up your voter records or be SUED!

Tillis bill ANOTHER ‘Gang of Eight’-style amnesty scam

THAT is the verdict that is coming in:  […]Immigration experts like Mark Krikorian with the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) have taken to social media to call out Tillis’ legislation as just another Sen. John McCain-style “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill. The “Gang of Eight”…

The N&O slipped up and actually did some decent reporting:  While Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper is expected to clash with the Republican-controlled General Assembly over the next several months, he has two other political challenges: Most of the state is Pat McCrory territory, geographically speaking….

#Butt-hurt: Driveby media, radical left sink to new low on the eve of TRUMP-day

James O’Keefe told us that attacks on inaugural events — like this Deplora-Ball that went on last night — were coming.  Of course, the driveby media ignored it and reported on the chaos like it was a shocking surprise. Trump supporters, opponents clash outside ‘DeploraBall’…

SCOTUS puts brakes on Soros-Barber-Cooper tag team efforts to obtain new maps, elections for 2017

Burr ready to subpoena Trump on ‘Russian hacking’?

Drivebys: American voters didn’t elect Trump. Russia did.

I’ve been watching driveby media for a long time.  I thought I’d seen it at its worst under President Reagan and during the tenure of Senator Jesse Helms.  Donald Trump is 17 days away from being sworn and the drivebys are making their behavior during…

2016 has been wild and crazy right to the very end.  (We get the feeling we may see a little more in the break between Christmas and New Year’s.)  Once again, we all here at Haymaker HQ want to thank you for your loyalty and…

#ncga: We’re looking at YOU, Mr. Bryan. (Yes. We. Are.)

We asked earlier WHO among House Republicans had the cojones to write into law — to codify, if you will — protection of state funding for a radical leftist non-profit.  Yep. Someone actually did that — in a bill sponsored by Republican Reps. Rob Bryan…
