TWO MORE YEARS of Speaker Timmy

He’s at the center of concurrent state and federal probes.  But that didn’t stop his colleagues from reelecting state Rep. Tim Moore to another term as Speaker of the North Carolina House.  We had heard from a number of sitting House members that a senior GOP House member was putting out feelers about a potential challenge to Moore for the speaker position.  Apparently, that didn’t pan out.  Apparently, the House GOP caucus is fine and dandy with two more years of self-serving, intimidation, and score-settling.  Moore has the ties to the big money. And we’ve seen time and again that…

Wayne Goodwin needs to shut up. (Seriously.)

There’s nothing like listening to a lecture on ethics and good behavior from a confirmed sleaze.  But that’s what the driveby media is subjecting us to.  And state Democrat Party chairman Wayne Goodwin is more than happy to oblige them.   Goodwin is all over social media and the driveby media questioning Mark Harris’s integrity and strongly suggesting he was okay with criminal conduct in his recently completed congressional race. Granted, he is the state Democrat chairman.  His job is  to attack Republicans.  (The job of the state GOP chairman is to apparently take LOTS OF NAPS.) But while we…

#ncga: Steinburg’s Girl Friday FIRED (on a Tuesday)

It’s interesting  that the Elizabeth City paper has this in its hard copy edition, but not online.  Seems like somebody is trying to do their part to keep the story from going viral on the Internet. (But as long as there is a Haymaker, what needs to go viral WILL go viral.) That’s right.  The man has gone from “full confidence” to throwing her out the door in a very short time. (We detailed the contents of the tape, and include a link to it, HERE.) It’s been quite a piece of political theater — kept alive mostly from Steinburg’s egomanical…

#nc-09: Calls for Josh Malcolm to recuse himself from Bladen-Robeson probes GROW

We got the ball rolling.  NC State Board of Elections chairman Joshua Malcolm is too closely tied to the political machine suspected of being behind sketchy, possibly-illegal election activities in Robeson County.  It’s pretty clear Roy Cooper elevated him to chairman to protect the Democrat interests in Robeson County while focusing on alleged Republican activity in Bladen County.  As a member of the Robeson County board of elections, Malcolm led efforts to stymie probes into alleged voting irregularities — typically aimed at the county’s Democrat machine.  He is the last person you would pick to oversee a fair, above-board state…

#nc-09: As evidence of DEM mischief grows, Dallas, Robin, NCGOPe bend over, grab ankles, SURRENDER

It’s becoming more and more clear that DC operatives tied to Labor, leftist interest groups, and the national Democrat Party were neck-deep in at least TWO congressional elections in North Carolina — using shell companies and PO boxes to do the SAME THING Bladen’s McRae Dowless is accused of doing.  Unfortunately, the NCGOP establishment, led by Robin Hayes and Dallas Woodhouse, is: caving in, admitting wrongdoing and agreeing to liberal calls for a new election in the Ninth Congressional District.  And they’re doing this before the first investigative hearing into irregularities in the Ninth has even started.   Agreeing to…

DC group messing with Robeson absentee ballots has deep ties to nat’l. DEMs, Labor, and radical Left

The Voter Participation Project, which we learned was aggressively pushing absentee ballots on Robeson County voters a month before the congressional election, is looking less like an educational, public interest group and more like a political organ for the radical Left and national Democrats. According to GuideStar: The Voter Participation Center’s (VPC) mission is to bring more people into our democracy and ensure that those who are traditionally underrepresented are fully represented in national, state, and local elections as well as civic engagement and public policy debates. Increasing the number and diversity of Americans who believe and participate in the…

#ncga: Asheville-area senator tosses her hat in ring for Lt.Gov in 2020

One of the more outspokenly liberal voices on Jones Street will be trying to fill Dan Forest’s chair after he vacates it to run for governor. Here’s state senator Terry Van Duyn (D-Buncombe) making the announcement on Twitter today:   (Here’s the link to the video.)

Robeson County pols crack down on anti-corruption crusader

It appears that Gerome Chavis is getting on the last nerve of the political bosses in this economically-depressed, corruption-infested, political-machine-driven Democrat stronghold: Robeson County’s government has taken out a temporary restraining order on Gerome Chavis, the face of the local We the People movement, which would prevent him from attending meetings of the Robeson County Board of Commissioners. A hearing on the order is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday in the Robeson County Courthouse, according to Gary Locklear, the interim attorney for the county. Chavis can ask that certain causes in the order be dropped or he can ask for…

ANOTHER sketchy DC DEM group messed with absentee ballots in Robeson County

“We The People Robeson County” — a grassroots band of anti-corruption crusaders — has uncovered the involvement of a leftist-oriented DC-based group in the dissemination of absentee ballots in Robeson County.  (Robeson is one of the counties in the contested Ninth Congressional District.) “We The People” posted photos of a mailing from something called “The Voter Participation Center.”  The mailers included a letter instructing recipients to fill out an absentee request form and mail it back in to the VPC.  It appears that VPC was acting as a middle-man (not unlike Bladen’s McRae Dowless) in the absentee ballot process. The…

Are SOME lefties starting to see our point on ‘Going Green’?

The folks who owned The N&O for decades sold out to McClatchy and bought the local paper here in Moore County.  Of course, they’ve imported their leftist worldview into our very yellow-dog Republican county. The editorial page is reliably leftist. That’s why it threw me for a loop to see an editorial from  that crowd confessing that the desire to recycle may not be worth the cost: It’s not that easy being green — and it sure isn’t as cheap as it used to be. Moore County is experiencing some new sticker shock on the cost of recycling. It might…
