Walter Jones has worn out his welcome

I used to be impressed with the 3rd congressional district’s Walter Jones (RINO).   While serving in the state legislature as a Democrat, he frequently broke with the leftist majority in his caucus on key votes.  He lost to Democrat Eva Clayton in a primary to replace his late father in North Carolinas’ 1st congressional district. Jones  switched to the GOP and took out incumbent Democrat Martin Lancaster in the…

Bev, bipartisanship, and those silly – silly – silly elections

Well, Madame Governor got us some national news coverage on Tuesday that made us look *VERY WISE* for making her our boss lady. ”Dem Guv calls for ‘suspending elections’ ” screamed the banner headline on The Drudge Report.  The headline was accompanied by a photo of  Miss Bev (and some dark-skinned gentleman in a suit) greeting BarryO as he was stepping off of Air Force One at RDU recently. (…

No profiles in courage for NCGOP in DC

  North Carolina’s Republican Members of Congress have proved — once again — that keeping Speaker John Boehner happy is more important than looking out for the folks struggling through a wretched economy back home. On Wednesday, 48 Republican members of the US House joined with 182 Democrats to kill legislation presented by the Republican leadership to keep the government running from October 1 to November 18: The Republican leadership…

Leftists demand a free lunch

      We’ve got  real good case study going on right now illustrating how disingenuous leftists and their comrades in the alleged Mainstream Media (MSM) can be when they are out to get someone. In today’s edition of our local paper here in Moore County, we had this: Congresswoman Renee Ellmers of the 2nd District will be guest speaker at the Monday, Oct. 3, meeting of the Moore Republican…

If you talk the talk, you better walk the walk

    I hate to say it, but I am leaning toward the N&O on this one.  During the 2010 campaign, U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-Dunn) attacked her opponent, then-incumbent Bob Etheridge, for his use of taxpayer-funded mailings to constituents.  The N&O is reporting that Ellmers is now sending out taxpayer-subsidized mailings to 2nd district voters touting her accomplishments in Washington: During her campaign last year Republican Renee Ellmers slammed…

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 to commemorate the events of that day by planting a tree, working at a soup kitchen, or some other kind…

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 to do with the federal Community Reinvestment Act, first passed in 1977 and tinkered with repeatedly ever since: How could…

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 Romney seems to be one of the few major candidates in either party who appears to have a clue on…

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 choice — escape from these horrible economic times by enjoying a great football game, or you can look at…

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 next to each of their last names. ) Check out the N&O’s latest swipe at Ellmers: Report: Ellmers at paid…
