NC-09: Robeson Democrat goes dark, still hasn’t filed final campaign report

A Robeson County school board member running for NC Senate in November — who appears to have been a significant vehicle for disbursing payments to GOTV “consultants” — has not communicated officially with the state board of elections since October 30 and has not submitted his final campaign finance report. The deadline for filing Q4 campaign finance reports was January 10. John Avery Campbell (D)  lost to NC senator Danny Earl Britt by  a margin of 63% to 37% in November.  Campbell and his campaign were scolded by the state board on a number of occasions.  In August, the Campbell…

A gay old time at ECU

We’ve heard all about funding woes and financial issues and enrollment struggles at East Carolina University.  But,hey, Greenville’s crown jewel is now home to the largest LGBTQ center in the UNC system: It’s now the largest LGBTQ Center in the UNC-system, located on the East Carolina University, and the state-of-the-art center will now hold the name of one of Atlanta’s most-influential gay activists, Dr. Jesse Peel.“It’s a bit overwhelming. Especially where it’s located and where I came from,” said Peel in an interview with Georgia Voice. Peel, a North Carolina native, grew up 20 miles from ECU, attended UNC-Chapel Hill…

NCGOP Follies: “Results, not Rhetoric” & The Pronunciation Game

Surprisingly, this one has NOTHING to do with the little cartoon character. What you see below is being pushed out all over social media: This is not news.  He already told us in his emailed Christmas card that he was running again.  The ad is recycled from his last run for chairman, where he knocked off Jim Womack. The fact that it’s being pushed out now means someone is putting some money behind it.  But is he seriously going to run under the slogan “Results, not Rhetoric” this time around?  After November???? The 9-11 hijackers got results.   Let’s look at…

#ncga: Whining about office space, ignoring scandal and other real news. Welcome to Driveby-LaLa-Land.

Apparently, the small band of driveby media types  that loiters in the legislative building is having to move to new office space.  And THAT has them upset.  Never mind all the corruption and malfeasance infesting our legislative branch. Office space is WHAT is important.  Take it from WRAL’s Laura Leslie, who amazingly still has a job covering politics after her social media malfeasance went viral. Her hairy gorilla butt must REALLY be hurting: For 56 years, ever since the Legislative Building opened, media organizations have had workspace across the hall from where news conferences are held and downstairs from the…

Robeson judge smacks down restraints on anti-corruption crusader. (Pols seeking other censorship options.)

Robeson County ranks near the bottom on every list of “good” things.  Unfortunately, they’re near the top of lists of the bad.  Some of those bad things include violent crime, election stealing, and political corruption. Gerome Chavis and his ‘We The People’ group of grassroots activists have been shaking things up hard and fast in and around the county.  The group played a crucial role in the election  of political outsider and underdog Burnis Wilkins to the office of sheriff.  Currently, Chavis and his crew are targeting the county’s board of commissioners — the state’s HIGHEST PAID. The majority on…

N&O + lefty comrades say Speaker Timmy played ‘chicken’ with ethics

You will get no argument from us when alleging that Tim Moore is, um, ethically-challenged.  We’ve reported at length about his shenanigans against fellow Republicans, his abandonment of the conservative principles that allowed him to become part of the House majority and speaker, and basically putting the House agenda up for sale to the highest bidder at a propensity not seen since Jim Black was shackled and frog-marched off to prison. Moore’s private business affairs (and income) have expanded exponentially since he became top-dog in the House.  He’s opened up a second law office in Raleigh.  He’s creeping right up…

TWO NCGOPers “exploring” a run for LtGov

With Dan Forest clearly looking to move up in the political world in 2020, there is going to be at least one sure-fire job opening in Raleigh.  A slew of Democrats have already started putting out feelers.  But at least TWO Republicans — both with impressive conservative credentials — are eyeing the opportunity to fill Forest’s shoes in the lieutenant governor’s office.  Former Mecklenburg County commissioner Jim Puckett – a victim of the blue wave that rocked his home county in November — is reportedly looking at the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor.  Puckett gained notoriety in recent years as…

NC-09: “Baseless” in 2016 = NOBLE in 2018-19

It’s funny how Pat McCrory’s concerns about vote fraud in 2016 – which sound a lot like the stuff we’re talking about NOW — were derided by leftists as “baseless”.  But, in 2018, when  they’re on the losing end, they’ll fuss about the same stuff and defend their efforts as “bringing back democracy.” Dan McCready — a stalking horse / front man for former Duke Power CEO and liberal activist Jim Rogers  — is doubling down on his quixotic crusade to paint the former president of the North Carolina Southern  Baptist Convention as an amoral, unethical knuckle-dragging crook. “Stole votes”,…

From “Genius” to “Tarheel of The Year”: Lefties inflate ‘The Round Rev’

At first,I thought the news of William Barber being named a MacArthur  “Genius”  was the work of ‘The Onion’ or another of James O’Keefe’s hijinks.  But NO, it was true. Now comes The N&O.  With all of the possible choices for ‘Tarheel of The Year,’  they had to pick “Rev. Race Pimp” himself. I’ve never encountered another pastor who compares himself to Jesus Christ as much as this guy does.   Jesus advocated for neighbors to reach out and help their neighbors in need.  I can’t find the biblical passages where he calls for government confiscation of private assets to…

For UNC, Silent Sam=”HATE” while ‘Satanic Club’ is OKAY.

We all know about the vandalism of the Silent Sam war memorial in Chapel Hill, and the leftist tantrum over even the thought of repairing and re-erecting it. I told you recently about a Louis Farrakhan acolyte coming in to UNC’s Asheville campus to keynote their MLK festivities.  This speaker is apparently too radical for the radical leftist “Women’s March” movement.  Yet, as far as we know, she is still ON to speak at UNCA.  If THAT didn’t turn your stomach, take a look at what’s happening on UNC’s Raleigh campus: A new club has just completed its inaugural semester…
