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…

NC-09: NCSBE chairman’s kin PAID $$$$ to campaign for Dan McCready?

NC state elections board chairman Joshua Malcolm already has an ethical dilemma on his hands —  chairing an investigation into campaign dealings in his home county involving a political machine he has long defended and supported.  The current hubbub over the Ninth Congressional District got started via a concern registered by Malcolm.  Well, campaign finance reports filed by the North Carolina Democratic Party indicate that quite possibly at least TWO…

Why were Columbus County sheriff-elect and his wife voting in two separate counties?

Sheriff-elect Jody Greene (R) is quite busy defending himself from accusations that — among other things — he doesn’t live in Columbus County.  State law requires that sheriffs live IN the county they serve. Greene is struggling to keep his story straight.  He’s maintained that he has been a long-term resident on family property in the Columbus County community of Cerro Gordo.  Yet, driveby media can’t seem to find any…

NC-09: Robeson judge candidate played absentee ballot game

Angelica Chavis McIntyre (D) had a great election day in November.  The assistant Robeson county prosecutor defeated incumbent district court judge Dale Deese, a former Democrat who switched to unaffiliated and won an appointment to a vacant seat from then-Gov. Pat McCrory (R).  Given all the attention to campaign activities in Bladen County, it’s important to look at what happened in neighboring Robeson County.  It appears a number of Democrat…

NC-09: State election chaos upends Columbus County sheriff’s race

State efforts to block certification of local races in the Ninth Congressional District have bled over to a local race in the neighboring Seventh District.  Apparently, the state board of elections is asking for a de-certification of the disputed November  2018 sheriff’s race in Columbus County, where incumbent Democrat Lewis Hatcher was upset by Republican Jody Greene by 37 votes.  Greene was sworn in on December 3.  There have been…

DC tells pro-border security Americans to ‘Stuff it.’

The DC establishment is working feverishly to avoid the feared government shut-down.  *Can’t tick off The Washington Post and The New York Times, can we?*  (I wish they felt the same about us little people out in fly-over country.)  Republicans STILL allegedly control Capitol Hill.  But they can’t seem to cough up $5 billion to kick-start President Trump’s border wall.  But they CAN find $10.6 billion in foreign aid to…

NC-09: Robeson GOP says ENOUGH.

Union County, one of the members of the Ninth Congressional District, has already made its wishes known about the political kerfluffle over the uncertified congressional race.  A second member county, Robeson County, now has its Republican leaders sounding off in the form of an official resolution: Resolution of the Robeson County Republican Party WHEREAS,  the Robeson County Board of Elections has certified the results of both the 2018 Primary &…

#ncga: A Steinburg Invitational post-mortem

Currituck taxpayers footed the seed money for senator-elect Bob Steinburg’s rookie venture into basketball tournament marketing.  We’ve kept you posted on how it’s been going.  Though, it is interesting how the senator-elect and his company are stone-cold quiet about how the tournament went and what, if any, benefits Currituck County taxpayers got out of it. The final numbers are in.  According to the Asheville arena management, a total of 178…
