Showing ID at the polls STILL “racist”

  Apparently,  the OK sign is racist.  (But the Democrat governor of Virginia wearing blackface is NOT.)   In the 1950s and 60s,  liberals got all bent out of shape because people were justifiably labeling them  as Marxists and communists and so forth.  It was…

The coming Republican crack-up?

  Three (R)s became (U)s out in Transylvania County,  thereby costing the GOP a majority on the county’s board of commissioners:   Transylvania County Commissioners David Guice, Mike Hawkins and Page Lemel have left the Republican Party.   In an announcement, (see statement below) the…

Crocodile tears over judges

  It’s interesting to see and hear all of these Republican  bigwigs bemoan “legislating from the bench”:     Thom Tillis and Richard Burr have voted for MANY of these judges who have overturned votes of North Carolinians and their state legislators.   The state…

#ncga: Yoga Pants, adult beverages, and DAVID LEWIS.

    Oh, the things politicians will attach their names to:     Depending on who is wearing them,  Yoga pants can be the most wonderful things.   Yet,  David Lewis is (1) very married, (2) representing a county that is a Southern Baptist powerhouse,…

#ncga: Is primary challenge to Boles being powered by the Po-Po?

    It’s not clear whether we’re talking about a small minority of Moore County law enforcement officers  or a significant chunk.  But it is pretty clear that some active and retired lawmen in the county are awfully excited about Southern Pines police chief Bob…

State incentives meant to aid poorer, rural counties go mostly to Wake, Meck

    Um,  SURPRISE ????       Plant closures and job losses have hit rural parts of our state the hardest.  Raleigh politicians talk a great game about helping those folks bounce back, but a new study shows their actions are not matching their…

More on 2020 filing

      Here’s the final list.   The Libertarian Party actually has a candidate named “Vermin Supreme” who has qualified for North Carolina’s March presidential primary ballot.   While they appear to be abandoning the 2nd and 6th congressional districts,  state Republicans seem to…

Is the attempted field-clearing & mud-slinging in the CD-11 GOP field all for the benefit of Wayne King?

  I’ve long been a fan of Mark Meadows.  That’s why it’s hard for me to believe that he would aid -and-abet politics-as-usual.     Filing for the March 2020 primaries ended Friday.   Meadows announced on THURSDAY that he was retiring from Congress for…

Mark Meadows, Sandy Smith aaaaaaaaand — PAUL WRIGHT ?????

  Mark Meadows threw us all for a loop by announcing his retirement from the US House.  The big  money is on Meadows being named the next White House chief of staff. (There has been plenty of talk in the driveby media about a soon-to-happen…
