NCGOPe decides to start fighting FOR Mark Harris

(It looks and sounds like they’ve been getting an earful from outside the Raleigh beltline on this.) Here’s where we stand.  A three judge state panel (2Ds, 1R) ordered the current state elections board to be dissolved. On Thursday, the legislature overrode a Cooper veto — allowing for the seating of a new state elections board as of January 31. Meanwhile, earlier today, the Mark Harris campaign petitioned the state…

NC-09: State elections board? (Buh-bye.)

That’s the latest word from the bench amid the chaos of the Ninth Congressional District chaos: A three-judge panel overseeing a lawsuit challenging the current makeup of the North Carolina State Board of Elections issued a new ruling Thursday night that effectively dissolves the board at noon on Friday.[…]  That’s TODAY, people. MORE: […] The panel issued a ruling late Thursday afternoon denying a request to further delay an order requiring…

For UNC, Silent Sam=”HATE” while ‘Satanic Club’ is OKAY.

We all know about the vandalism of the Silent Sam war memorial in Chapel Hill, and the leftist tantrum over even the thought of repairing and re-erecting it. I told you recently about a Louis Farrakhan acolyte coming in to UNC’s Asheville campus to keynote their MLK festivities.  This speaker is apparently too radical for the radical leftist “Women’s March” movement.  Yet, as far as we know, she is still…

#ncga #TBT: The dawn of the Speaker Timmy era

With politicians, it’s always fun to match what they’re saying and doing NOW, with what they said or did FIVE MINUTES ago, FIVE WEEKS ago, FIVE MONTHS ago, or even FIVE YEARS ago. Here’s a post from 2014 where a bright, young bushy-tailed legislator from Kings Mountain was making his case to replace Thom Tillis in the speaker’s chair: […] Even with those accomplishments, it is time we move toward…

#ncga: OVERRIDE !!!!

We saw something today we’re not likely to see much of over the next two years:  an overridden veto.   The House and Senate overrode Roy Cooper’s veto of HB 1029 — legislation to reform the state board of elections and ethics commissions.  The bill basically rolled back the clock and undid the legislature’s previous efforts to merge the ethics and elections boards. It also changed the rules so that election allegations…

#ncpol: He WON’T leave! (OMG)

If you believe everything you read — especially things like Dallas’s Grandpa’s Christmas cards — we’re being set up for TWO MORE YEARS of the Dallas & Grandpa Show: I guess the RNC wasn’t willing to take him off our hands for a do-nothing convention prep job.   Nobody — registered Republican — with any common sense or significant number of IQ points seriously thinks 2018 was a great election…

#ncga: GOP majority screwing Mark Harris for Christmas

Mark Harris is a Baptist preacher.  He lives by the principle of loving your enemies.  (The guy is waaaaaaaay too nice for politics.) After he lost the 2014 primary for US Senate, he went to work campaigning for Thom Tillis ( while Greg Brannon told them all to go pound sand.)  Harris has been a team player.  And look at what it’s getting him. The NCGOPe is rolling over and…

For UNC, Silent Sam = HATE, while Farrakhan is OK.

Leftists have been falling all over themselves to justify the vandalism of the “Silent Sam” war memorial statue in Chapel Hill as a way of erasing “hate” from UNC campuses. Meanwhile, let’s check out what’s happening at UNC’s Asheville campus: Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory will deliver a keynote address next month as a part of UNC Asheville’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week, the university said Tuesday. Mallory plans to…

Driveby paper admits: Clifton is RIGHT.

A member of the state’s driveby media has finally caught on to what so many people out there already know. Now, if we could just get the rest of them onboard.  Here’s The Wilson Times from December 7: Wherever he’s been stowed away for safekeeping, Silent Sam is surely shaking his head. This week, the University of North Carolina Board of Governors rubber-stamped Chancellor Carol Folt’s proposal to move the…
