EVEN MORE fun with math.

The leftist drumbeat about not winning a lot more at-large statewide vote than the GOP, but not as many seats in Congress or The General Assembly continues.  Let’s explore the lack of logic and plain ol’ sense in their arguments with a few maps (h/t Politico website)  from Tuesday (red=Republican…

Fun with Math

This stupid headline from The N&O illustrates one of the biggest pieces of nonsense were going to hear about from the leftists in upcoming months.  Yet, some UNC-brainwashed activist judge will examine his tea leaves,  chicken bones, ouija board and magic 8-ball and give even more life to it. The…

#ncpol: Just gonna leave this RIGHT HERE …

It’s been interesting to see and hear all of the North Carolina Republican big-wigs tearing Judge James Wynn a new one for his ruling against North Carolina’s congressional districts.  (Case in point, see below.) Of course, we agree with Mr. Blaine on his assessment.  We always have. But not all…

McCrory putting the shiv to Raleigh Republicans

They hated his guts while he was governor.  But ol’ Pat sure is giving the lefties what they need these days. Exhibit 1:  McCrory has teamed up with the other living former governors (Hunt, Easley, Perdue, Martin) to publicly campaign AGAINST two of the constitutional amendments being promoted by General…

#ncpol: “Republican” Charles Jeter teams w/ Common Cause re:”gerrymandering”

Charlie Jeter.  During his time in the House, he racked up a record as the most liberal Republican.  Yet, he got elected conference chairman and was a close ally of Speakers Thom Tillis and Tim Moore. Ol’ Charlie would regularly screw his GOP colleagues on votes or just simply disappear…

#ncga: New maps. (Hmm …. )

The honorables have floated some new proposed districts for the state’s court system.  My first thought:  The districts are so nice and neat and contiguous.  WHY can’t we do this for the legislature and the Congress? Here are the proposed prosecutorial districts.  Here are the proposed District and Superior Court…

Throwing out the maps AGAIN. (Thanks, Dave.)

Candidates start filing in February for the May primaries.  Yet, districts for state legislators and Congress are — to put it kindly —up in the air:  A panel of three federal judges on Tuesday ordered the state to redraw its congressional map again, forbidding North Carolina from holding this year’s…

#ncga: Senate map !!!

Okay. We’ve seen the black magic stirred up by David Lewis and the crew in the House.  Here is what the Senate has come up with: SD1:  As we reported earlier, Beaufort County’s Bill Cook (R) has been removed from his district and thrown into a majority Democrat district represented…

#ncga: New Senate map gives Moore County its 3rd different senator in six years

Harris Blake retired in 2012.  Since then, Randolph County’s Jerry Tillman has represented us in Jones Street’s upper chamber.  Now, if this current map holds, Richmond County’s Tom McInnis (R) will likely be representing Moore County in the next legislative session. We got wind of this possibility some time back….

#ncga: Oh, look. Mail.

Redistricting is on everybody’s mind on Jones Street.  And certainly none more so this week than the mind of Senator Angela Bryant (D): Rep. Lewis and members:  It is not fair that we do not at least have shape files today.  This is like releasing a pdf and not the…
