#ncga: Time for mandatory rabies testing?

I have some good friends residing in and around Charlotte.  But I tell them often — your hometown is a LOST CAUSE. For starters, they’ve got a rioter and a 9-11 skeptic / cop-hater sitting on their city council.   The producers are fleeing by the droves.  Those who stay behind are getting bled dry to subsidize the consumers (who just happen to have all the votes). Apparently, the RNC has narrowed its choices for its 2020 convention to Charlotte and Las Vegas.  Vegas IS a lot of fun.  But most of you know that.  Unfortunately, its proximity to L.A….

(Wait for it. WAAAAAAAAIT FOR IT.) “Um, discrimi-racism !!!”

The meek, bashful soft-spoken Ann Coulter has a great piece out on how leftists LOVE to use blacks as “props” in their performance theater aimed at defending and expanding their agenda. *Voter ID is not about securing the integrity of our elections process.  It’s RAAAAAAAACISM.  More black folks in the local jail than white folks?  RACISM and DISCRIMINATION. More black folks than white folks being paid millions per year to play kid’s games? (Um, never mind.) * Over on Jones Street, they are moving a bill allowing some municipalities in Mecklenburg County to establish city-operated charter schools as an alternative…

Charlie Jeter: What a ‘bargain.’

He was the muscle for Speaker Thom Tillis in the North Carolina House, while racking up the most liberal voting record in the GOP caucus.  He and Kelly Hastings regularly bumped into each other while trying to escape the House chamber and take a walk on important votes.  His private business got sued for non-payment of debts. And he quit his reelection bid at the last minute, thereby handing his seat over to a Democrat.  But things are looking up for Charlie Jeter.  He got hired by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to lobby The General Assembly.  He could do that. He knew…

” … Now I know my ABCs, won’t you LGBTQ with me?”

The Charlotte City Council and the Char-Meck School board appear to be in a neck-and-neck race to kiss up to the homsexuals.  The City Council, as we know, tried it with that bathroom nonsense.  Now, here comes the school board: The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board voted 7-2 Tuesday to take a stronger stand on supporting LGBTQ students. The vote followed an impassioned and sometimes raucous public hearing. The board approved a revised multiculturalism policy that expands the definition of diversity to include sexual orientation and gender identity/expression, along with such attributes as race, gender, national origin and religion. It also strengthens the mandate…

McClatchy celebrates Charlotte rioter’s election to city council

I was an undergrad in DC when then-mayor Marion Barry got caught smoking crack in a hotel room with a woman who was not his wife.  The whole thing was on videotape.  I thought for sure the guy was DONE politically.  I mean, who could shrug off something like that?  (Barry went to jail.  But he also got elected and reelected mayor and councilman several more times down the road.)  Well, it appears an awful lot of Charlotte voters AND many of our state’s drive by media types are shrugging off something worse in Charlotte: […] Around Charlotte’s government offices…

Drive-bys celebrate first anniversary of Charlotte riots

Riots are *special* times, eh?  It is just galling that the driveby media and their radical leftist accomplices seem to view rioting as a perfectly acceptable form of expressing oneself. THAT was on display in Charlotte today.  I happened to catch some of it on TV while I sat in the waiting area of a local business. The TV was turned to Spectrum Cable (formerly Time Warner) News. (I swear that station has the feel of a junior high mass communications class / campus closed-circuit TV channel.  An awful lot of what you find on YouTube has better production quality /…

#ncpol: Um, Party Disloyalty?

WRAL ran this cutesy item about one Charlotte mayoral candidate getting some help from the other side of the aisle: […] State Sen.Joel Ford‘s mayoral bid in Charlotte got a boost from colleagues across the aisle. State Sens.John Alexander, R-Wake, Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, and Tommy Tucker, R-Union, all donated to the Democrat’s campaign. Senate Rules Chairman Bill Rabon, R-Brunswick, gave $5,000. House Rules Chairman David Lewis, R-Harnett, gave $100, not from his campaign fund, but from his own pocket. Except for Tucker, none of these men live in or around Charlotte. Perhaps it’s legislative camaraderie. Perhaps they’d like to see…

Remember those ‘mostly peaceful’ Charlotte riots?

What a shameless liar young Mr. Colin Campbell has become!  The N&O propagandist is making Saddam’s “Baghdad Bob” look like an absolute piker. Here young Mr. Campbell is mocking an ‘economic terrorism’ bill moving through the General Assembly:  Protesters who damage property or block traffic could face tougher penalties under a criminal offense called “economic terrorism” proposed last week in North Carolina’s legislature. The bill from several N.C. House Republicans comes months after Charlotte faced weeks of protests following the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. While most of the protesters were peaceful, some broke windows, looted stores and shut…

Fresh off her tranny adventure, Charlotte’s clown-mayor picks a fight with The Donald

She showed her ignorance of the North Carolina constitution with that ridiculous ban on gender segregation in locker rooms and rest rooms. Let the he-shes into your ladies rooms and locker rooms, or get fined into bankruptcy.   Now, Charlotte mayor Jennifer Roberts is taking her foolishness onto the national stage: So, the city is going to ignore a presidential executive order? Roberts is practicing the tried-and-true trick we warned you about of disguising a shocking lack of facts behind a whole lot of screeching and demagoguery.    Of course, The Observer and the rest of the driveby sycophants will be…

“It’s NOT my job.” (Bravo.)

The first instinct of most politicians is to grovel and pander to voters — especially those with BIG bank accounts.  THAT is not the case with Mecklenburg County commissioner Matthew Ridenhour (R).  You see, one of the billionaire families behind NASCAR apparently wants some government help in bringing major league soccer (BARF!) to the Charlotte area. The family went before the county commissioners, and Mr. Ridenhour was not impressed.  Here he is getting heckled on Facebook for his skepticism about the deal:   *mic drop*
