NC-09: The cover-up comes to a crescendo

  See if you can wrap your head around this one.  There was enough “fraud” in a congressional race with a 905-vote margin to necessitate a new election.  There was not enough “fraud” in a judicial race in the same district with a  67-vote margin to require a new election.  So sayeth the North Carolina state board of elections: Robeson County’s long unsettled District Court election now has a winner….

Did NCGOP attorney aid / abet leftist hit on GOP congressional candidate?

  It sure looks like that. Social media is alive with buzz about an article in  Popular Information, a new website helmed by various and sundry alumni of the Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama political machines.    The target of the article?  Union County commissioner Stony Rushing (R), who was endorsed by the embattled Mark Harris to seek the GOP nomination in the special election for The Ninth Congressional District….

NC-03: Nix quits NCGOP

  The NCGOP vice-chairman post, that is.  Here’s our boy Dallas: You would think Dallas was a BOSS giving a sendoff to a respected, departing employee.  WOW.  It’s been one of the worst kept secrets out there that Michele Nix was running for Congress.  Who can forget, back in the waning days of the  2018 primary campaign for the Third district, when  she was chasing down Walter Jones seeking his…

NC-09: Team Soros, Team Hillary, Team Obama & WRAL come after Stony Rushing

  I don’t know much about this guy.  But I’m starting to like him more and more.  He certainly has ALL the right enemies gunning  for him.  (And he doesn’t appear shy about punching back at them.) Lefties will gladly tell you WHO scares them the most.  THAT is usually who they hit the hardest.   First, this slime started appearing on Twitter: Any group you see featuring the  name…

#ncpol: See the Influence-peddler for “struggling rural hospitals” whine and moan about his luxury Caribbean vacation.

It must be tough being a pampered, overpaid Raleigh influence-peddler.  Here’s one right now apparently complaining  about how tough his life is: Let me translate.  @Adam Stewart is the Twitter account for the deputy chairman of Sandals Resorts — the famed all-inclusive vacation chain with locations throughout The Caribbean.  One of their properties is called “Royal Barbados.” Here is the apparent owner of the @SelectSandy account: And last but certainly…

NC-09: More from McCrae

  Some things we’ve learned NO THANKS to this state’s worthless lazy drive by media: (1) There may very well have been other paid operatives in Bladen County doing for the Democrats exactly (or worse than) what McCrae Dowless was doing for Mark Harris. (2) There are credible reports coming out of Robeson County about a BOX of absentee ballots returned to the Robeson County Board of Elections office in…

NC-09: An elections board cover-up of DEM shenanigans in Robeson?

  According to Raleigh’s Voter Integrity Project,  that is exactly what we have, boys and girls:   Around noon today, the NC State Board of Elections ordered Robeson County election officials hand over “newly discovered” evidence that implicates high-profile national and local Democrats in a major absentee ballot harvesting operation that dwarfs the number of ballots involved in Bladen County.   “We’ve been quietly fighting for this and other evidence since…

WSJ: Mike Causey “cooperated secretly” with FBI probe in NC? (Ruh-Roh!)

  The Wall Street Journal dropped quite a stink bomb on #ncpol today: […] A federal criminal investigation, made public in October after subpoenas were issued, is looking into Mr. Lindberg’s political donations and his relationship with North Carolina regulators, according to people familiar with the matter. North Carolina is one of 11 states in which insurance commissioners are elected. The probe also is exploring potential financial misdeeds related to…

NC-09: Surveying the post-Harris field

  Mark Harris has learned a painful lesson. After his 2014 loss in the US Senate primary, Harris decided to be a team player and campaign for nominee Thom Tillis.  While 2014 conservative standard-bearer Greg Brannon told them all to ‘pound sand,’ and went on his merry way, Harris continued to be a “good” Republican.   He lost a close primary challenge to Robert Pittenger in 2016.  And we all…

Folwell: Rats in NC House to cost taxpayers an extra $1.3 BILLION

  The rat-weasel hybrids in the North Carolina House seeking to strip state treasurer Dale Folwell of some of his most important duties and kick the can on fixing  the troubled state health plan down the road a little further have added two more “Republicans” to their ranks:  Bobby Hanig and Ray Warren.  House Bill 184 blocks Folwell from instituting any reforms or changes of any kind to the state…
