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…

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…

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”,…

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…

For UNC, Silent Sam = HATE, while Farrakhan is OK.

Leftists have been falling all over themselves to justify the vandalism of the “Silent Sam” war memorial statue in Chapel Hill as a way of erasing “hate” from UNC campuses. Meanwhile, let’s check out what’s happening at UNC’s Asheville campus: Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory will deliver a keynote address next month as a part of UNC Asheville’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week, the university said Tuesday. Mallory plans to speak Jan. 24 at UNCA’s Lipinsky Auditorium, about a week after the third annual Women’s March takes place in Washington D.C. and communities nationwide. She was one of the organizers of…

Driveby paper admits: Clifton is RIGHT.

A member of the state’s driveby media has finally caught on to what so many people out there already know. Now, if we could just get the rest of them onboard.  Here’s The Wilson Times from December 7: Wherever he’s been stowed away for safekeeping, Silent Sam is surely shaking his head. This week, the University of North Carolina Board of Governors rubber-stamped Chancellor Carol Folt’s proposal to move the toppled Confederate soldier statue to a new $5.3 million history center where Sam would serve as the main attraction. The pitch was an attempt at compromise, but one so poorly…

NCGOP staffer seeking more ways to “work with Democrats”

Grier Martin beat her brains out (electorally) on Election Day.  She campaigned for the House while on the state GOP payroll.  (Her campaign website included boasting about how her greatest accomplishments included getting resolutions passed at Young Republican meetings.) She’s blasted Republicans for not being cozier with “progressive” political activists.  (She even joined some RINO calls for moi to leave the NCGOP.) Hang on to your hats, folks.  Catherine Whiteford , the Young Republicans wonder-girl, has something new to say: Yes.  That’s the same Grier Martin who rudely ranted about President Trump as a “soft coward” who should “not come…

Elizabeth City paper: Bob Steinburg needs to apologize.

I know.  I know.  The guy who intersperses his vicious personal attacks on political foes with self-righteous proclamations about his ‘Christianity’ won’t do it. He’ll caterwaul and moan about his young innocent legislative aide being “injured,” but won’t say a word about his (and his inner circle’s) previous bad behavior toward his past political opponents.   Apologizing is not senator-elect BS’s style.  He’s  more of a slander-praise-Jesus – slander-some-more-move-on kind of guy.  But the drivebys at the Elizabeth City paper are demanding an apology from the Edenton legislator (and rightfully so): State Rep. Bob Steinburg, R-Chowan, did the right thing last…

Robeson County pols crack down on anti-corruption crusader

It appears that Gerome Chavis is getting on the last nerve of the political bosses in this economically-depressed, corruption-infested, political-machine-driven Democrat stronghold: Robeson County’s government has taken out a temporary restraining order on Gerome Chavis, the face of the local We the People movement, which would prevent him from attending meetings of the Robeson County Board of Commissioners. A hearing on the order is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday in the Robeson County Courthouse, according to Gary Locklear, the interim attorney for the county. Chavis can ask that certain causes in the order be dropped or he can ask for…
