ICE ruins Taco Tuesday in Lee County. Amnesty crowd throws a fit. (Film at 11.)

  The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement service (ICE) swept into our fine state this week to actually enforce federal law on immigration and employment.   Something called Alerta Migratoria NC issued a call to arms to its shock troops: Isn’t that sweet?  They have to tell their empty-headed supporters WHAT TO SAY when someone picks up the phone on the other end.  (Want to place bets on how many…

#ncpol: Grandpa’s election night was rough. How did Jim Womack do?

In the last battle for NCGOP chairman, we were bombarded with commentary about how Jim Womack can’t beat the Democrats and can’t raise money.   This year, we found that Robin Hayes — the victor in the chairman’s race — has extreme difficulty beating Democrats and has to lean on high-priced “fundraising consultants” to raise money. We all know the statewide results from Tuesday.  Oh-fer-four on some very winnable statewide…

In Lee County, a 24-year old GOP star is born

Quite a few twenty-somethings in North Carolina politics make pilgrimages to Raleigh with visions of making it big QUICK. Patrick McHenry, for instance, got elected to the North Carolina House right out of college.  One young lady in Lee County started off aiming small and ended up becoming one of the NCGOP’s few bright spots on Tuesday. Arianna del Palazzo (R), a 24 year-old  financial planning professional, shocked the political…

Effort afoot to return controversial edu-crat to Lee County?

Dr. Jeff Moss has a way of stirring things up wherever he goes.  Until 2013, Moss had a stormy tenure as superintendent of schools in Lee County, North Carolina.  He left that position in  2013 to take the superintendent job in Beaufort County, South Carolina.  Earlier this year, Moss left the Beaufort job. Meanwhile, there is  a search on for a new president of Central Carolina Community College in Lee…

Saul Alinsky comes to Sanford.

The nationwide trend of trolling Republicans’ Facebook pages, twisting something there to appear racist, and then beating them over the head until they APOLOGIZE is making its way down to the local level. (Radical leftists scoop this stuff up and then hand it off to their lazy useful idiot accomplices in the driveby media.) The latest “victim” is a conservative Republican county commissioner in Lee County:  Lee County District 3…

Lee Co. Democrat Party boss: Bring ‘a baseball bat’ to the polls

Why would you want to do that?  Just in case a softball game should break out?  Here’s Lee County Democrat Party vice-chairman Margaret Murchison:  What is Margaret so upset about?  Apparently, some local Republican activists are wanting to hand out pamphlets at polling places identifying the candidates who happen to be military veterans.   Here’s some bio information on ol’ Margaret: Wow. She’s ALSO a drive by media type. Ms….

#ncpol: Taking money from the hand attached to the mouth that regularly BITES YOU.

We’ve written before about a politically-connected, well-moneyed PAC that has succeeded in orchestrating a leftist takeover of local Lee County political institutions.   They knocked off a conservative legislator and took control of the Sanford city council and the Lee County board of commissioners.  It was especially shocking to see some of the same architects of that leftist takeover behind an October fundraiser for Republican governor Pat McCrory in October.  On…

Monkey business galore in Lee, Haywood counties

Haywood County is — I believe — the last county in North Carolina to elect its tax collector.  The Democrats have a stranglehold on this western North Carolina jurisdiction. They dominate the county board of commissioners. Well, the local GOP threw a monkey wrench into the plans of the county’s political machine.  A Republican upset the incumbent Democrat holding the county tax collector position. As you can expect, the local…
