The pot calling the kettle CORRUPT

Nationwide, Democrats have had some success in snatching election victories away from Republicans AFTER election day.  Now, it looks like they might be giving it a try on a North Carolina congressional race: The 9th Congressional District race between Republican Mark Harris and Democrat Dan McCready is not over. The State Board of Elections Tuesday declined to certify the results of the race, even though all counties have certified their votes and Harris is ahead by 905 votes. The vice chair of the board, Joshua Malcolm, said he would no longer “turn a blind eye” to what he called “unfortunate…

NC’s Butterfield, Price bash ICE for DOING ITS JOB.

Mexico is being torn apart by riots over uncontrolled illegal immigration.  Meanwhile, American liberals — from the United Methodist Church to the Democrat Party — want to import that very chaos to our streets. Congressmen David Price and GK Butterfield — who represent some of the worst socialist / banana republic sections of our state — are stepping up to defend an illegal alien who, it appears, committed identity theft and violated our immigration laws repeatedly: Two members of Congress representing Durham say a Mexican man arrested by immigration agents Friday appeared to have been entrapped as he responded to…

The leftist mob starts Tom Farr’s ‘Black Friday’ a little early

While many of us are settling down for the cameraderie and fellowship normally associated with Thanksgiving, Bert & Ernie and the gang at NCPolicyWatch are on the warpath: Thomas Farr is not just another one of President Donald Trump’s conservative judicial nominations. A group of civil rights leaders spoke on a teleconference about their collective opposition to Farr’s nomination to the U.S. District Court bench in the Eastern District of North Carolina. The judicial vacancy is the longest running one across the nation at over 11 years. Farr, who is a well known GOP attorney who has spent his career…

DC libs prepare to ‘Kavanaugh’ Tom Farr. Burr & Tillis need to step up to the plate.

THIS came out over Twitter Friday: They made now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh a skeevy perv.  While the Republican majority has left North Carolina’s Tom Farr, an approved nominee for the federal bench, hanging out there to dry — Democrats have been trying to paint him as the second coming of Lester Maddox. Farr’s “offenses”?  Working as counsel to the 1990 Jesse Helms reelection campaign and defending election reforms — like voter ID — proposed by the GOP majority in the state legislature.  I can’t vouch for Farr’s level of conservatism.  I know he has been a good foot-soldier for the state…

Aaaaand NOW: A word from Dallas’s Grandpa …

The last time we saw him publicly, he was openly encouraging people to violate campaign finance law.  He’s been locked away since then, but someone felt obligated to let him out in the wake of Tuesday’s debacle to record a message to the NCGOP troops. (Of course, we got a copy.)  Hayes starts off by thanking party volunteers and leaders for their work in a “challenging election season”: […] “There are no words to convey just how appreciative I am.  We won 95 of 170 legislative seats, held on to our 10-3 US House delegation, and passed four of six…

The tale of the campaign report (NCGOP edition)

After scrutinizing Tuesday’s results, a lot of folks from Murphy to Manteo are left scratching their heads wondering “What in the hell did they spend their money on?” Well, let’s see: $330,000 to the Florida GOP.   Nearly $100K in payroll expense for someone named Marissa Ranieri.  That’s through October 20.  We can’t find any sort of internet footprint tying anyone by that name to the NCGOP.  She doesn’t show up on the staff listing on the NCGOP’s LinkedIn page.  There does not appear to be a publicly available listing of current party staff.  (Call the office, even after hours,…

#ncpol: Grandpa’s election night was rough. How did Jim Womack do?

In the last battle for NCGOP chairman, we were bombarded with commentary about how Jim Womack can’t beat the Democrats and can’t raise money.   This year, we found that Robin Hayes — the victor in the chairman’s race — has extreme difficulty beating Democrats and has to lean on high-priced “fundraising consultants” to raise money. We all know the statewide results from Tuesday.  Oh-fer-four on some very winnable statewide judicial races.  The loss of super-majorities in BOTH chambers of The General Assembly.  Jim Womack, Hayes’s reelection opponent, went back to work as chairman of the Lee County GOP.  How’d…

Aaaaand the surrender train keeps rolling on

In the 1970s. a perfect storm of libertarians, Christian conservatives, and conservative Democrats came together to shift the GOP from an afterthought to  a force to be reckoned with in North Carolina. Folks with some things in common — and some NOT — came together in a way that benefited all of them (and the state as a whole).  Here we are in 2018. We have two Republican US senators who vote slightly to the right of the average member of the Democrat caucus in their chamber.  We have an ever-shrinking legislative majority, elected on a platform of limited government…

Fun with Math

This stupid headline from The N&O illustrates one of the biggest pieces of nonsense were going to hear about from the leftists in upcoming months.  Yet, some UNC-brainwashed activist judge will examine his tea leaves,  chicken bones, ouija board and magic 8-ball and give even more life to it. The good ol’ US of A is 77 percent white.  Yet, our very own National Football League is 68 percent black (as of 2014).   *Where is the outrage?  We need a league that LOOKS LIKE AMERICA. * Thirty-nine percent of North Carolinians are Republicans.  I am willing to bet the…

And let the spin BEGIN …

The six-figure salaried frat boys at NCGOP HQ are already taking to social media to try and make lemonade out of Tuesday’s lemons: Let’s see.  When Dallas The Boy Wonder and his Grandpa got installed via coup at NCGOP HQ in 2015, we had a GOP governor, a majority on the NC Supreme Court, a majority on the Court of Appeals, and super-majorities in both chambers on Jones Street.  Here in 2018, we have NONE OF THAT.   It takes an infinite amount of gall to spin a finish with LESS than what you started with as a SUCCESS.  (But…
