#RNCinCLE: Cruz SCREWS UP

#NCGOV: The tale of the $$$$, by county

WBTV out of Charlotte has a heck of an interesting graphic.  They’ve broken down the latest fundraising totals for the two major candidates for governor, county-by-county. If the map on the linked page has any correlation to standing in the polls, Team McCrory really has…

#RNCinCLE: The heavy hand. Melania’s speech. And WHY is Dallas Woodhouse so angry?

It’s interesting to see all of the takes on the happenings so far in Cleveland.  On one hand, you have folks beating on Reince Priebus and the boys for being too top-down and heavy-handed.  Disrespecting the grassroots.  On the other hand, you have folks saying…

Sanford NC mayor: Black on black violent crime “out of control”

  Leftists and the driveby media are working hard to whip up a narrative about police ganging up on poor defenseless black people.  Obama wants the police to kowtow and beg for forgiveness — as they’re being ambushed by snipers.   Well, Chet Mann, the…

Drivebys cranking up the ‘idiot’ narrative

#BanZan: Ms. Bunn and the Cleveland Coup that couldn’t get off the ground

The coup in Turkey apparently went toes up.  And so it seems did the woeful #NeverTrump exercise at the RNC in Cleveland: On Saturday, MSNBC interviewed Dane Waters of Delegates Unbound, a group trying to get the Republican National Convention to adopt rules that allow…
