Felony charges make The Left, media eat a little crow

Felony charges filed against four Wake County residents for vote fraud are surely making the state’s Left and their friends in the alleged Main Stream Media (MSM) eat a tad bit of crow.  One media outlet that will surely be dining on that annoying black bird, is The Pilot in…

Renee Ellmers “grows in office” …

That spells BIG trouble for us, fellow taxpayers. You see, The New York Times — like The Raleigh News & Observer — does not care for ANYTHING even remotely conservative. In either of those publications, if you see a mention of a conservative’s name, you can bet the piece is…

Passing the smell test …

I had such high hopes for state Rep. Stephen LaRoque (R-Kinston).  When he first came to the legislature, he was joined at the hip with former state Rep. Richard Morgan and his sweetheart deal with House Democrats.  LaRoque lost a bruising reelection fight, as did Morgan.  LaRoque got back in…

The lies about the debt ceiling increase start to fall apart …
