There’s a new driveby lap-dog in town!

Wow. It seems like just yesterday that lefties and their driveby comrades had their collective granny panties in a wad about analogies comparing Barack Hussein Obama and his policies to Hitler and HIS policies. Fast forward to this weekend and all of the open borders loonies marching in Raleigh and elsewhere.  Signs with Donald Trump’s likeness — and a Hitler mustache, of course — were all over the place.  And not one word of concern from the alleged fair-minded guardians of the First Amendment.  (Never mind that socialism — something near and dear to leftist hearts everywhere — is at…

#ncpol: The N&O, the chicken plant, Jesus and the KKK

The last few stragglers in The N&O newsroom must be auditioning for jobs at NC PolicyWatch.  Some of the “reporting” is reaching such extreme, bottom-of-the-barrel lows that Blinky & Scowly have got to be impressed. The N&O treated us recently  to headlines about a “Jesus-centered” chicken plant — Mountaire Farms — allegedly working to make a bunch of trailer-dwelling Hispanics homeless.  Nice, huh? And — as a cherry on top — we get some flashback reporting about a 2000 KKK rally featuring David Duke in Siler City.   I tried to figure out where the “Jesus-centered” description came from.  A…

The N&O’s, um, *”bombshell”*: Campaign signs get defaced!

If you were one of the handful of people who browsed by The N&O’s website this weekend, you’ll see that they’ve been highlighting — as their top story — all weekend the defacement of a Raleigh City Council candidate’s campaign sign.   Of course, the candidate is Muslim, has an Arab-sounding name, and is pictured on the sign wearing a hijab.  And, of course, in the heart of liberal Raleigh, someone had defaced her sign with the words “Trump” and “sand n***er” (without the letters censored). And, of course, it happens right in front of election day.  Now, I’ve been…

N&O’s ‘Toilet Boy’ joins Blinky & Scowly in piling on Plott Hound

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. — Martin Niemoller   In the 1950s, liberals protested angrily at what they saw as Joseph McCarthy’s efforts to lump them in with Communists and other enemies of America. In…

RobRielleWho & The FAKE nooze

The SAME GUY who followed John Edwards around for a whole year — and never noticed the bottle-blonde with the video camera and the baby bump — can’t understand for the life of him why people are disgusted with the driveby media: Media bashing has a long history. The late Sen. Jesse Helms made his political bones attacking what he called the liberal media, using many of his 2,800 commentaries at WRAL-TV from 1960 until 1972 to rake The News and Observer and other news organizations over the coals. That is what he was hired to do by A.J. Fletcher,…

Colon Campbell is JEALOUS.

The N&O’s boy wonder — and special lavatory investigator — opened up his favorite publication and found himself a scoop:  The humor publication MAD Magazine has named Gov. Pat McCrory to its annual “20 Dumbest List” because of his support for House Bill 2. The December issue spoofs McCrory as a “stall cop” with an image of the governor in a security officer uniform, a nod to the Paul Blart “Mall Cop” movies. “Keeping North Carolina Bathrooms Safe From Transgender Persons Who Want to Take a Whizz,” the caption says. THIS comes from the same fake news reporter who regaled…

N&O, Democrats say ‘Elevator Queen’ not doing enough to help illegals

Cherie Berry is in all of our elevators, but apparently she’s not in the hearts of the proletariat in The N&O newsroom. For many workers cheated out of wages, NC Department of Labor offers no help.  That’s the headline we were hit with today.  And who runs the NC DOL?  Why, it’s that mean ol’ female Republican Cherie Berry, of course.  *Every drive-by knows that it’s DEMOCRATS who help people.* Let’s get a taste of what this is all about: Thousands of workers turned to the North Carolina Department of Labor each year to collect the wages their bosses had…

Farewell to the shih-tzu

Something’s missing.  There is a real void on Raleigh’s Jones and McDowell Streets.  Apparently, John Drescher’s pet shih-tzu has run off to Denver, CO for greener pastures. Mr. Frank’s absence has had a clear effect on the product of McClatchy’s Raleigh subsidiary.  Some of WRAL Binky’s incompetence would rub off on him — occasionally — but, once in a while, he’d ask some good questions and come up with some good tidbits. Now, we’re getting an awful lot of copy from McClatchy’s out-of-state holdings, and not so much locally-generated copy. Why did Mr. Drescher’s lap dog run off?  Wake County…

#NCSEN: Beware of shih-tzu!

            John Frank — N&O executive editor John Drescher’s attack shih-tzu — is apparently lobbying for a full-time gig in the lap of his master.  The boy wonder put together quite a hit piece on  Greg Brannon — the Tea Party’s favorite in the US Senate GOP primary: Let’s take a look at the Greg Brannon coalition announced so far: Rand Paul and Ann Coulter.  And let’s consider the new Public Policy Polling numbers that put Brannon as the only Republican candidate besting Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan right now. All GOP candidates – including the…

Turnaround? We don’t need no steenkin’ turnaround (says Rob C.)

  The McClatchy Gang has shoved Rob Christensen to the forefront to proclaim — with a somewhat straight face — that Gov. Pat is crazy for saying the state needs a turnaround because everything is FINE in North Carolina.   Oh, yeah. Bev backed out of running for reelection because everything’s GREAT. (Rob’s spin here reminds me of  THIS fine piece of acting by Kevin Bacon.)   The state’s unemployment rate has consistently been at least a percentage point above the national average.  No. We don’t need a turnaround. Everything is GREAT. We’ve got the highest gas tax burden in…
