An “impeachment” primer

      Saying you’re pursuing impeachment doesn’t mean it’s actually happening.  There’s a full-blown procedure laid out in law that the Democrats and NeverTrumpers have yet to touch. Peter Schweizer published a great book last year detailing how all kinds of Washington Insiders —…

Have Fox News and Todd Starnes parted ways?

    THAT is the word I am getting from well-placed fans of this site from up north.   Starnes and Sean Hannity are two of the  network’s most popular personalities with conservative viewers. Both have a radio AND TV presence.  We’ve been hearing stories…

#ncga: Speciale NOT running for reelection in 2020

    Wow.  The number of bona fide conservatives is rapidly dwindling away in the North Carolina House.  Some have retired — as the result of frustration over a gerrymandered district, or to take on a bigger, better opportunity, or out of frustration with the…

#ncpol: Holly Grange throws a fit

  “Do you know WHO I am ?????”   That’s a question that likely opens a lot of doors for state Rep. Holly Grange in the vicinity of Raleigh’s Jones Street and among Wilmington’s country-club set.  But earlier this week — out among “the real…

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…
