Drivebys: Hurricane damage fault of Jones St. GOP

You gotta looooooove that “logic”: North Carolina legislators voted in 2012 to ban the use of a report that showed the ocean could rise as much as 39 inches by 2100. Now, with Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas, and thousands evacuating from the coast, that decision is once again making national headlines and drawing criticism from those who say state leaders who approved the bill were nearsighted. Some are saying the 2012 law could mean more damage from storms like Florence. […] The extreme green crowd was trying to set land-use policy in stone using a ONE HUNDRED…

Monetary messes for many NC local governments

We’re coming up on the November elections.  Many counties will have commissioners on the ballot.  You’ll hear a lot about how great things are in your neck of the woods.  For many localities across the state, data collected and monitored by the state treasurer’s office and the Local Government Commission tells a disturbingly different story. We obtained a document referred to in state government circles as a “unit assistance list.”  This list tracks municipal and county governments across the state who are struggling with keeping their respective financial houses in order.  The information in these documents was compiled as of…

‘Toilet Boy,’ The N&O and Incompetence.

*Talk about three things that go GREAT together. * The N&O’s Colon Campbell — renowned for his blockbuster HB2 disinformation extravaganza — is doing his best to whip up hysteria among the public, carry leftist water, and just plain lie to the dwindling number of people who still read his paper. “Incompetent federal investigators want to see your ballots”   screams the headline above Campbell’s latest masterpiece: It’s amateur hour at the federal Department of Justice and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. The agencies won’t say what exactly they’re investigating, but they recently submitted subpoenas for a massive amount of voting…

#ncga: Devil in the details …

House Republicans have a group of young guys and gals holed up at NCGOP HQ implementing the caucus campaign strategy (buying ads, issuing press releases, etc.).  Sometimes the individual legislator campaigns take care of stuff.  Here’s one example from Facebook that has some heads all across #NCPOL land being scratched: It’s a nice ad. What’s the problem, you ask? Sauls represents House District 51 which includes Lee and Harnett counties. This ad has him representing District 52, which includes Moore County. (I wonder what Jamie Boles thinks about that?) If Sauls’s actual campaign produced and paid for this, it’s an…

UNC: Forums on whether to repair vandalism

That’s what the gutless administration in Chapel Hill has planned regarding Silent Sam.  The drum-circle-statue-toppling-face-mask-wearing crowd will show up in full-intimidation mode.  The sane, sensible people will hide in the back of the room quietly or avoid it altogether.  Who wants to get beat up by a filthy leftist mob? This has the potential to set a very dangerous precendent.  See something in public that really ticks you off?  Get some of your comrades together and break it.  Heck, it’s working for the Silent Sam mob.  Maybe it will work when you decide to trash that atrocious taxpayer-funded spectacle that…

[#ncpol] Professor Dave & GK: Investigate the investigation.

Legislators packed the great majority of North Carolina’s kooks who managed to register to vote into three congressional districts. Satan could register as a Democrat and STILL win by 70 percent. The result?  G.K. Butterfield, David Price, and Alma Adams (who struggles with counting). Butterfield and Price are demanding a federal investigation of a federal investigation.  Got that? Specifically, these two dolts want to know WHY a federal grand jury in Wilmington wants election info from Eastern North Carolina.  Butterfield is a former judge.  He should know better.  Price is on the faculty at Duke — where they all believe…

Low-info Left not Holding back on George.

The same crowd that gets threatened by statues and thinks the US DOJ is interested in how many of your family members voted for The Evil Pant-Suited One™ in 2016 has got a new one they’re trying out — this time in North Carolina’s Second Congressional District race: First of all, there is no evidence that George Holding has ANY involvement in the day-to-day operations of First Citizens Bank.  Let’s get that out of the way.   Second, town halls are basically a chance for hardcore kooks to beat on you like a piñata in Tijuana.  Average Joes and Marys…

The Steinburg Invitational: Wanna go?

Excitement is in the air.  If you’re planning to be in the vicinity of Asheville, North Carolina over Thanksgiving, state Rep. Bob Steinburg is bringing you some quality college basketball to watch IN PERSON:  Arkansas State, Eastern Illinois, UNC-Wilmington, and Gardner Webb. What?  Don’t find that prospect exciting?  We thought it was our duty to keep you posted on what $50,000 in Currituck County tax revenue has purchased. It looks like The Steinburg Invitational is doing its part to create a job or two in Asheville.  Here are some ads posted online by Bob’s company, The Wolfestein group: First, can…

*Call me CRUSHED. Call my dreams SHATTERED.*

Tim Boyum, the politics guy on that channel that always seems to be playing in  medical office waiting rooms, dropped this political bombshell today:   Just to make it clear — I WILL NEVER RUN FOR PRESIDENT, EITHER. (Just in case anyone was interested.) Thom Tilli$$$$ will have a whale of a time surviving a 2020 reelection bid.  It’s a presidential year, and the Democrats will be bringing their A-game.   His 38% conservatism ranking won’t help much with his party’s base. Isn’t it interesting how few NCGOP candidates are seeking his help in campaigning? Also, the guy has engendered…
