Craven County: GOP establishment taking their marbles, going home?

        Well, it looks like the mainstream media (MSM)  has finally noticed the hubbub within the Craven County GOP: […] A far right faction of Craven County Republican Party, many of whom say they are not in the “tea party,” now has the local GOP at least sipping tea. […] Is this one of McClatchy’s rags?  That lede is straight out of their stylebook.  Isn’t it *funny* that folks who actually want to adhere to the party platform are labeled ‘far right’? This MSM story details the action within the Craven GOP that we have documented extensively…

When you’ve got nothing of value to add — RACEBAIT !!!!

Those of you who live outside The Fayetteville Observer’s circulation area, you probably haven’t become acquainted with Myron Pitts.  For those of you in the Triangle — think of Myron as a poor man’s version of Barry Saunders.  It’s pretty typical for the few remaining legacy newspapers to keep at least one token black columnist with marching orders from their white liberal bosses to spew outrageous nonsense aimed at keeping the “brothers and sisters” riled up and angry at whitey. The Fayetteville Observer — like the McClatchy papers — is afflicted with a shrinking subscriber base, a dwindling newsroom population,…

The Round Rev & his rabble come to town

We here in Moore County were, um, “honored” with the presence of Bill Barber and his traveling circus of parasites and leftist loons this afternoon. As usual, the media was present — swooning, slobbering and ready to take dictation.  It’s funny, though. They couldn’t agree on attendance at the event.  ABC 11 said there were “dozens” in attendance.  Our local Nobel Prize nominated, money-bleeding local paper said there were “hundreds” in attendance.  (*Math is sooooo HARD.*) ABC 11 is STILL not acknowledging the fact that the Moral Monday sideshow is being stage-managed by one of their recent former on-air employees….

Lazy? Yeah. Biased? Yeah. Dumb? (Hmmm … )

          The Supreme Propagandist at The N&O, John Drescher, says Gov. Pat called him and his colleagues DUMB this week.  Really?  Let’s look at what McCrory said: We felt like Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife this week after Gov. Pat McCrory said we were not capable of understanding his economic plan. “This is too complex for the journalists,” McCrory said to businessmen during a speech Monday in Asheville, according to the Mountain Xpress. “They don’t have economics degrees; they’ve not been in business. I respect them greatly, but you get it.” I don’t see…

Legacy Media: Malpractice in the Courtroom

Well, it looks like the mainstream media and their lefty buddies didn’t quite get the widespread anarchy and chaos they were counting on in the wake of the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.  We saw footage today of a couple dozen potheads breaking windows and vandalizing cars in Oakland, CA — but, from what we understand, that is a typical, daily occurrence there. George Zimmerman — a white Hispanic (according to CNN) — was acquitted of all charges in the shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin. People followed the proceedings of this case religiously.  The drive-by media told…

Digging a little deeper inside the faculty lounge at UNC

What’s that smell, you ask?  Why it’s the patchouli-and-granola Chapel Hill-Carrboro crowd  stinking up Jones Street and tying up police officers’ valuable time –– comparing themselves to MLK and protesting “draconian cuts” to public education. We wrote earlier about one of the rabble-rousers at the legislative building — Dr. Charles van der Horst of UNC-Chapel Hill.  McClatchy made a point of profiling Dr. van der Horst and portraying him as an incredible novice to this raising-cain, getting-arrested politics thing.  They made the guy look like he was just an average Joe — a wide-eyed innocent — who was moved to…

Drive-by state-run media, Dems bemoan “erosion of local control.” (Seriously. No foolin’.)

      Yes, I had to do a double-take this morning after reading the lastest spin coming out of state-run media.  Granted, the newly-empowered GOP has not done the best job of adhering to conservative principles. I’ve been the first to point that out on many occasions.  But the same people who think Washington needs to run our health care system, and to approve our public school student assignment plans, school cafeteria lunch menus,  and election districts moaning about overreach by government reeks with the foulest odor of hypocrisy.   Local control is not always the best thing.  Look…

Mainstream media and their lefty comrades swoon over all of this “economic expansion”

        The slobbering sycophants in the mainstream media steno pool are trumpeting a story from sea to shining sea that the economy is EXPANDING.   Seriously.  Does ANYBODY buy this?  We all know someone out of work or struggling to make ends meet.  Do you REALLY believe that we have the BEST economy in FOUR YEARS?   Let’s look at a few things. The media is excited that the unemployment rate is at 7.5 percent — a four year low.   Do you realize that this *cause for celebration* is still HIGHER than the high point of…

While the MSM chortles & Comedy Central guffaws, here’s an interesting take on the whole official ‘state religion’ thing

Two Rowan County Republican legislators stirred up a national controversy introducing a resolution called “The Defense of Religion Act.”  The resolution, which suggested that local governments could establish an official religion, was a response to an ACLU suit against the Rowan County board of commissioners over their pre-meeting prayers. Rob “RielleWHO?” Christensen says Speaker Thom needs to get a handle on those “red-hots” in his chamber.   Steve Bouser, columnist and former editor of our thrice-weekly Ramnath Goenka award-winning local paper here in Moore County,  says he’s ashamed to have been connected to Rowan County and live in North Carolina…

#MSMFAIL: editors need refresher on the whole singular v. plural thing

    For the second time this week, I’ve come across a MSM headline that indicates there might be some real confusion in newsrooms about this whole singular and plural thing.  Earlier this week, we got stories about “Civil Rights Leaders” getting upset about the Confederate flag hanging inside the Old Capitol building in Raleigh.  Though, the only critic quoted in said stories is William “Two Tons of Fun” Barber.  (I know.  They MAY have a point.  You could argue that Barber can be counted as more than one person.) In the latter part of the week, McClatchy featured a…
