9/11: Why we should never forget. Why we should keep fighting.

The alleged mainstream media (MSM) is beside itself — pretending to be patriotic — as it commemorates the 10th anniversary of the 9/11/01 mass murders in New York, DC and Pennsylvania.  They talk about the event like it was a terrible storm, like Hurricane Katrina. Barry-O tells us we need…

Getting sued by the feds for LISTENING to Washington …

          Reports are out about the Feds suing big banks for all of the bad housing loans they gave out in the run-up to the crash of the U.S. housing market. Why did these banks give out all of these bad loans?  It has A LOT…

Job creation and the political silly season ….

“Job Creation” is THE buzz moving through the media and the political class as the 2012 campaign season starts to gear up.  Barry-O is giving us a speech on Thursday about how he will create jobs. Candidates are attacking each other over who has the best “job creation” plan.  (Mitt…

He wants your money AND your TV time ….

First, President Barry wants to speak on television Wednesday — at the same time as a GOP presidential debate.  That idea gets nixed — so he tries to get some TV time on Thursday.  The problem with Thursday — that is the night that NFL football coverage kicks off.  What…

A drive-by sliming, courtesy of the N&O and Politico ….

It is astounding how much more press coverage and scrutiny the current occupant of the 2nd congressional district seat, Renee Ellmers (R), is getting than her predecessor, Bob (Who are you?) Etheridge (D) did. ( I am SURE it could not have anything to do with those letters in parentheses…

Renee Ellmers “grows in office” …

That spells BIG trouble for us, fellow taxpayers. You see, The New York Times — like The Raleigh News & Observer — does not care for ANYTHING even remotely conservative. In either of those publications, if you see a mention of a conservative’s name, you can bet the piece is…

North Carolina’s “Monty Hall” Republicans in Washington …

The new majority in the state legislature has been a pleasant surprise for North Carolina conservatives, who have stewed for years about the spending smorgasbord on Jones Street.  We have been seeing a lot of principled conservatism and common-sense legislation coming out of the legislature this year. For 30 years,…

Trillions more in debt is GOOD for you. Trust US.

I have to give rare kudos to Democrats Larry Kissell and Mike McIntyre, who voted against the U.S. House deal to raise the federal debt ceiling — even if it might have been for the wrong reasons. Sixth District Republican congressman Howard Coble, who represents Moore County, and 2nd District…

McIntyre: I’m running in NC-7 regardless of final map

Congressman Mike McIntyre has said publicly that he plans to run for reelection to his 7th district seat regardless of what the final redistricting map looks like.  Two maps have come out of the legislature.  The first map had more than half of McIntyre’s home county in Larry Kissell’s 8th…

Redistricting reboot: From bad to worse for NC Democrats

The Left threw a major tantrum over the first congressional redistricting map released by the conservative majority in the North Carolina General Assembly.  Leftists claimed the map was unconstitutional, unfair to minorities, and WAY TOO GENEROUS to Republicans. The map-drawers in Raleigh received word that the federal government had concerns…
