Appalling. Grotesque. Illiterate. (That’s OUR Thilli$$$.)

I sure wish Mark Levin would stop pussy-footing around and tell us how he REALLY feels: Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin explained why the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee who voted to advance an unconstitutional bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller were dead wrong. First, Levin pointed out the absurd claim that firing Mueller would be an impeachable obstruction of the Russia investigation. “If Trump did fire Mueller, which I don’t think he should, how would that stop the Russia investigation?” Levin asked. “Somebody else would pick up the cudgel and continue to investigate Russia.” Levin…

#ncpol: Harris nabs BIG family values endorse in NC-09

In their heated rematch from last cycle’s nail-biter, congressman Robert Pittenger and challenger Mark Harris have been bending over backwards to woo the district’s social conservatives and values voters. Harris appears to have scored big with an endorsement from The NC Values Coalition — arguably the state’s largest and most effective lobby for the conservative social agenda: Since the founding of our coalition, we have had the opportunity to closely work with Mark Harris on every pro-life and pro-family initiative our coalition has advanced in North Carolina. Mark Harris is a determined leader and tireless advocate for conservative family values….

#ncga: Senator Sanctuary

We’ve got a senator named Tom in DC who has shown true weakness on illegal immigration and protecting our national borders.  It appears we may have a senator named Tom in Raleigh who may be just as weak. In 2015, senator Tom McInnis was one of just THREE Republican senators to vote against HB318 “The Protect North Carolina Workers Act.” From the General Assembly website, here’s the description of the bill: “AN ACT TO REQUIRE E-VERIFY COMPLIANCE IN CERTAIN GOVERNMENTAL CONTRACTS, TO PROVIDE THAT CERTAIN CONSULATE OR EMBASSY DOCUMENTS MAY NOT BE USED TO DETERMINE A PERSON’S IDENTIFICATION OR RESIDENCE…

#ncga SD-1 endorsers: Top conservative blesses Twiddy. Steinburg gets — a DEMOCRAT?

Well, one of the wildest, craziest, meanest primary fights in the state is mercifully coming to a close.  Endorsements are starting to come in. Senator Bill Cook (R), the retiring incumbent in the district, has cut an ad for Clark Twiddy that both praises Twiddy and blasts state Rep. Bob Steinburg. Cook followed that up with this, from The Daily Advance newspaper: It’s unusual, to say the least, to hear an incumbent legislator publicly criticize another legislator — especially one from his own party.  But at least Cook has the guts to be open and honest and transparent about his…

#ncpol: Conservative PAC takes a bite out of Scott Dacey

Eastern Carolina Conservatives Fund is putting its two cents in about congressional candidate Scott Dacey, who — if you haven’t heard — is a lobbyist for Indian casinos. Dacey, Phil Law, and Walter Jones are all seeking the GOP nomination for North Carolina’s 3rd congressional district. ECCF has apparently decided to educate the good folks in the Third District about Mr. Dacey.  A radio ad and a television ad both started running across the district today. Election Day is May 8th.

#ncpol: Anti-Trumpers airing ads THANKING Thilli$$$ for his help.

Some of the leading opponents of President Donald Trump in the DC establishment are coming together to air ads in Charlotte and Raleigh praising US Senator Thom Tilli$$$ for his work in keeping special prosecutor Robert Mueller employed: Washington, DC– Republicans for the Rule of Law was recently founded by Bill Kristol, Mona Charen, and Linda Chavez–along with a broad coalition of conservatives and Republicans–to represent the majority of Republicans who believe special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation should be completed without political interference. In anticipation of Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee vote on the Special Counsel Integrity Act, and to praise…

Moore County: An evening with the candidates

I spent my Monday evening — roughly 2.5 hours of it — taking in a candidate’s forum at Little River Golf Club.  (*Oh, the things I do for you people* ….) We got treated to speeches and Q&A with most of the candidates who will be on the May 8th ballot.  Here are some of my takeaways: Sheriff:  Embattled incumbent Neil Godfrey and challenger Ronnie Fields jabbed at each other.  Fields claimed morale at the department is so low that 100 employees have left since Godfrey took office.  Godfrey countered by saying that the actual number of employee departures during his tenure…

What day is it? (Don’t ask Phil Law.)

Phil Law is one of three candidates seeking the 3rd congressional district’s GOP nomination.    He’s appeared on this site before.  Getting all flexible and creative with his racial identity.  Filing for the 3rd district congressional race — even though he lives 60 to 80 miles outside the district in Wake County.   And now, there’s THIS. Yep.  Somebody apparently forgot to update his commercials.  He ran in 2016 when primary election day was June 7.  This year, the congressional primaries are on May 8.  I can see it now:  Low-information voters galore flocking to schools and churches all over…

GOP women’s group blasts Berger & co.’s meddling in SD-25 primary

One of the largest Republican Women’s groups in the state, Moore Republican Women, is speaking out via president Pauline Bruno about the activities of the affiliated committee controlled by Senate president Phil Berger: Moore Republican Women is very unhappy with the intrusion of the North Carolina Senatorial Committee in our redistricted North Carolina 25 election. We have two members (Tom McInnis and Michelle Lexo) running against each other. The use of the frank (reduced cost mailing) of the North Carolina Senatorial Committee is a de facto endorsement of one candidate over another. We, as a unified club, resent this meddling…

Treasurer Folwell keeps looking like a good investment

He’s raised awareness of the crisis surrounding the state health plan.  He’s kicked ineligible people off of the state health plan.  Now, state treasurer Dale Folwell has helped to engineer this: A Wake County grand jury has indicted a man for keeping his mother’s North Carolina pension payments for 15 years after her death. The N.C. Department of State Treasurer, led by State Treasurer Dale R. Folwell, CPA, worked with law enforcement during the investigation as part of the treasurer’s continuing efforts to fight fraud against North Carolina’s $100 billion pension plan. “I have a duty to protect the pension…
