#ncpol: About last night …..

  We had two out-of-season congressional races.  Republicans won both, so the drive-bys have had little to say since the votes were tallied.  The chattering class wants to put this all on  Trump.  Yes,  I think he deserves some credit, but there are some other…

SO. Whatcha’ doin’ on Tuesday?

  If you’re a fan of this site, and haven’t yet voted,  you BETTER MAKE TRACKS TO THE POLLS.  If you have friends who haven’t voted,  drag them  along.     We’v got TWO congressional seats — the Third and Ninth — that have been…

NC-09: McCready’s minions apparently fear THIS GOP gal

    Just check out the kind of reaction a woman in a  Dan Bishop t-shirt passing out literature, and taking some video and pictures outside the Robeson County Board of Elections provoked among some of the paid Democrat campaign professionals today:     That’s…

NC-03: The Allen Thomas Show

  We just told you about some of the bizarre activities of the Allen Thomas for Congress campaign.   Some folks are still demanding photos or video to go along  with the narrative.  We here at The Haymaker aim to please.  So, here we go….

NC-03: A riot at the Harris-Teeter. Praising Allah. (The Allen Thomas campaign.)

  There must be something in the water in New Bern.   Anyway, somebody in the Allen Thomas (D) campaign for Congress thought it would be a great idea this past week to organize a “flash mob” — a spontaneous-looking gathering — of supporters inside…

NC-09: Another one bites the dust.

  The Robeson County Board of Elections has had its second resignation in a week.  That knocks the group down to three members — two Democrats, one Republican.  (One Republican resigned roughly one week ago.)  The group stands a strong possibility of shrinking even further…

Weasels. Everywhere we look. WEASELS!

  We opened the door earlier on this subject — folks in the NCGOPe selling out and throwing in with the same enviro-wackos who have been trying to kill the party’s candidates for decades.   Well, we’ve found more.   Matt Bales was the political…

The unholy alliance between abortionists and the enviro-wackos

  This is something that has folks on the left and the right perturbed.  (For different reasons, though.)  One of the more significant money-men behind this political alliance is apparently a North Carolinian named Fred Stanback.   Here’s the story on the moneyed Salisbury resident…

NC-09: Dems on Robeson elections board getting called on the carpet in Raleigh

  I hate to sound like a broken record, BUT:  In the end,  the real story, the real scandal in the Ninth Congressional District is in  Robeson County.  Not Bladen.    I was perusing the meeting notice for the September 5th state board of elections…

NC-09: McCready praises public schools, but his kids go to pricey private school

  Time and again I’ve come across politicians who sing the praises of public schools, but won’t dare to send their own kids to one. Better yet — they attack school choice programs that give a wider range of parents a choice of public or…
