Monkey Business Report: Pat McElraft and ‘technical corrections’

We told you earlier about the honorables on Jones Street tossing around $700K  of our money in  a quite care-free fashion with little to no strings attached.  At first, it looked like senator Harry Brown (R-Onslow) was the ringleader here.  After all, he was the primary sponsor of the ‘technical corrections bill.’ Well, after that post ran, we heard from several folks on and around Jones Street (including some folks…

#ncpol: Sheriff v. Sheriff in Columbus County

Republican Jody Greene knocked off incumbent Lewis Hatcher by 37 votes on Election Day.  Meanwhile, approximately 180 absentee ballots went missing. Greene was also besieged by questions about his residency and the fact he and his wife had been voting in two different counties. Greene was hurriedly sworn in as sheriff.  The state  board of elections ruled that Greene was sworn in too early, and that the prevalence of outstanding…

NC-09: Malcolm in the middle?

We told you earlier about former state board of elections chairman Josh Malcolm’s college-aged, live-at-home daughter getting paid to campaign for Dan McCready in the Ninth Congressional District race.   Now, my  main man Nick Ochsner appears to have uncovered another sticky situation for Malcolm: Records show the immediate past Chairman of the North Carolina State Board of Elections had frequent contact in the days leading up to the 2018…

#ncpol: What is this “fight” you speak of, Grandpa?

After weeks of hiding — and sending Dallas out to advocate for a new election  and even telling legislators to change the law to allow for a new primary — NCGOP chairman Robin Hayes has come out,um, swinging: We won this round. Democrat Governor Roy Cooper tried to intimidate the NCGOP into submitting names for a sham kangaroo elections board. With the law on our side, we said no to…

Monkey Business Report: Technical Corrections

In the legislature, “technical corrections” are sort of like the “consent agenda” you hear about in city council and county commissioner meetings.  Meant to be for correcting things like spelling, grammar and other typos, “technical corrections” are a fantastic opportunity for the honorables to sneak stuff in under the radar to take care of their friends. Take SB 469 for instance.  The bill, sponsored by senator Harry Brown (R), was…

NC-09: “Baseless” in 2016 = NOBLE in 2018-19

It’s funny how Pat McCrory’s concerns about vote fraud in 2016 – which sound a lot like the stuff we’re talking about NOW — were derided by leftists as “baseless”.  But, in 2018, when  they’re on the losing end, they’ll fuss about the same stuff and defend their efforts as “bringing back democracy.” Dan McCready — a stalking horse / front man for former Duke Power CEO and liberal activist…

NC-09: Can We Talk?

It sounds like the Mark Harris campaign  is in the mood: Perhaps this is a first step toward an armistice / truce in this fight over the Ninth Congressional District?  It’s interesting how quiet the McCready campaign  has gotten, and how Robert Pittenger is suddenly no longer interested in being a candidate in an election do-over. As a pastor and devout Christian, I am sure Dr. Harris is much more…

NC-09: 48 subpoenas (and NO ONE to serve them)

Hillary Clinton’s lawyer has stepped up to represent Dan McCready (D) in the political sideshow currently engulfing the Ninth Congressional District.  Marc Elias has written to former state board of elections chairman Josh Malcolm to lay out his need for 48 subpoenas to be issued to witnesses ahead of the January 11 “vote fraud” hearing. The  most notable names on Elias’s list are Dallas Woodhouse and Robin Hayes.  Elias claims…

From “Genius” to “Tarheel of The Year”: Lefties inflate ‘The Round Rev’

At first,I thought the news of William Barber being named a MacArthur  “Genius”  was the work of ‘The Onion’ or another of James O’Keefe’s hijinks.  But NO, it was true. Now comes The N&O.  With all of the possible choices for ‘Tarheel of The Year,’  they had to pick “Rev. Race Pimp” himself. I’ve never encountered another pastor who compares himself to Jesus Christ as much as this guy does….

How much border wall does $5 bil. get you?

It appears somebody went out there and figured it all out: As Congress battles over President Trump’s demand for $5 billion in border-wall funding, Homeland Security officials explained Friday what that money could actually buy. According to DHS officials, the funding would cover the construction of 215 miles of “wall system” on the southern border.[..]  Authorities estimate the total length of the US-Mexico border as somewhere between 1900 and 2000…
