#ncga: Smearing Mr. Bishop.

State senator Dan Bishop (R-Mecklenburg)  is one of the nicest, most integrity-laden politicians we know of in contemporary North Carolina politics.  That’s why the hit piece from  the UK Daily Mail — normally a trustworthy conservative news source — threw us for a loop.  A story breaking just before the election in that publication suggests Bishop was THE money man behind a social media platform  that the Pittsburgh temple shooter utilized. Dan Bishop is a leader in social conservative political circles.  He committed the unpardonable sin — in leftist eyes — of pushing HB2 through the General Assembly.  So, he…

#ncga: Tide pods? (*Yummy!*)

The N&O’s AndyPaul Speck (*Spock? Spoke? Specht?*) — heir apparent to Colon “Toilet Boy” Campbell and John “The Shih Tzu” Frank — does a bang-up job transcribing and publishing crib notes from leftist opposition research types (when he’s not trying to play catch-up with this site). It’s pretty clear that the lefties want the scalp of one Beverly Boswell,  a rookie Republican state representative from Dare County.  Boswell speaks her mind, doesn’t care about scoring brownie points with the Raleigh crowd, and doesn’t mind taking on the left and establishment’s sacred cows. Lefties monitor the social media accounts of various…

#ncpol: There’s a NEW shih-tzu in town!

 … And his name is Andy or Paul.  Speck, I think.  Anyway, longtime readers of this site may remember we dubbed former N&O scribbler John Frank “The Shih-Tzu”  for his lapdog modus operandi.  (In other words, he often waited patiently for a morsel from the Raleigh Left, and did to a TEE what they told him to do.) Well, Frank has moved on to greener pastures in the dying driveby media industry and AndyPaulPaulAndy (Specht? Spock? Speck?) has stepped in to take his spot on Wayne Goodwin’s lap. AndyPaul gleefully took dictation a few months ago from Goodwin and the…

Nasty liberals, their driveby enablers ensnare Senator Burr

I’ll say it again, some of the most vile, most evil, most depraved people on the planet vote early and often for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and cruise around with bumper stickers with COEXIST spelled out in cutesy little symbols. Colon Campbell has once again been dispatched from the bathrooms to take dictation on behalf of the “Revolution of the Proletariat.”   This time, he has an easy mark in the form of US Senator Richard Burr:  U.S. Sen. Richard Burr is facing criticism for joking that reading negative newspaper articles would make him “slit my wrists,” with some…

Never mind the hordes of leftists rioting in our cities. (Let’s talk about the 50 Klansmen up in the mountains.)

From Seattle to San Francisco to Chicago to Cleveland to Charlotte, we have hordes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton supporters destroying public and private property, assaulting people, and causing all kinds of mayhem.  Cops are being injured.  States of emergency are being declared.  Other than from Rush Limbaugh, there have been NO calls to have Hillary or Obama condemn their rioting allies.   Yet, when a couple dozen Klansmen want to have a “parade,” all hell breaks loose among the drivebys.  It’s a national crisis that all Republicans must denounce with all their heart, soul, and inner fiber.  …

#ncgov: WHO approved THIS ?????

Governor Pat McCrory’s reelection campaign has provided us with many a face-palm moment.  And yet there’s another one on the horizon.  SOMEBODY in that camp OKed the governor participating in a debate on October 11 moderated by Chuck Todd, host of Meet The Press.   What, Laura Leslie was not available?  Hell, why not Chris Fitzsimon?  The Wikileaks hack of the DNC’s email revealed what a lot of us had already assumed:  El Chucko is Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s lapdog.     (*Chuck, this must stop.*)  McCrory also has some previous experience with Todd — having appeared on Meet The Press during a…

Colin “Gay Stuff” on the June primary: Voters hate Donald Trump, GOP legislators

McClatchy-Raleigh was in need of some spin on the June primary.  And WHO better to provide said spin than their official GAY STUFF !!!™ correspondent, Colin Campbell? In today’s N&O — birdcage lining or fishwrap in most people’s homes — we were *blessed* with ‘seven things we learned’ from the June 7 vote:  […] Voters aren’t promoting state lawmakers right now: Six current state legislators and a former state senator sought seats in Congress on Tuesday. All of them lost. […] Past election cycles have been kinder to state lawmakers trying to move up. Adams and several other congressional incumbents who…

#ncga: HB2 FOR DUMMIES (Pay attention, Colin & Binky. THIS will be on the quiz.)

It seems like the drivebys are having a contest to see who can use some form of the words “bigot” and “hate”  (i.e., bigoted, hateful, bigot, bigot-a-licious) in the fewest column inches.  We’re hearing a roll call of highly important concerts (*Itzhak Perlman, Boo-Hoo*) cancelling their visits to North Carolina, while WRDU seems to be announcing the impending arrival of some new big name band in the state each day.  Trolling the N&O website, it’s really hard to find a post that has nooooooothing to do with GAY STUFF!!!™.  With all of the hysteria the drivebys are trying to whip…

HB2: Pat travels. Roy fiddles. Binky piddles

Here’s a great primer on how drive-by “news” coverage in our fair capital city works.  First, you get a press release / tweet from a liberal pol / organization, like — oh — this one: Stuff like that makes a beeline for our little buddy Binky over at WRAL. He may be a little late jumping on it.  He’s BUSY with something else: *Yeah.  That’s what I want when I tune into ESPN — Binky bloviating about GAY STUFF!*  (Perhaps they think he’s transgender, and can offer a first-hand account of the impact HB2 has had on “him”?)  Once Binky…

Former WRAL boss: GOP needs to ‘shoot’ Limbaugh

Yep, that’s right.  Jim Hefner used to call the shots at WRAL.  Now he teaches ”the practice of journalism” at UNC.  Here he is in the money-bleeding, gasping-for-its-final-breaths Charlotte Observer: Sometimes you have to shoot your own dog. And that’s just what the Republican establishment needs to do. And, no, Donald Trump is not the dog. But we’ll start with a dog. If you are of a certain age, you will remember the movie “Old Yeller,” set in post-Civil War Texas. Yeller, a yellow Labrador retriever, contracts rabies after defending his adopted family from a wolf. The mouth-foaming, vicious pet…
