#ncpol: Drive-by media dumbness.

  I know they’re all bleeding money and having to cut staff.  But sometimes — sometimes — you deserve better than  what they’re doling out.     Our local paper here in Moore County is a special case.  They are owned by the people who…

NC-09: Here we go again? (Ballot harvesting x 10 ???)

  Some DC Democrats,  the Dan McCready campaign, and their enablers in the drive-by media spent months lecturing us on the horrors of ballot-harvesting.  They even hammered home their point by savaging Rev. Mark Harris and a guy out of Bladen County named McCrae Dowless….

NC-03: Murphy tells Burr to back off Trump Jr.

NC-09: A smoking gun that potentially clears Mark Harris, McCrae Dowless?

  In the latter part of the 2018 and the early months of 2019,  Democrats and the drive-by media (and some “helpful” Republicans)  regaled us with sordid stories of “vote fraud” by McCrae Dowless and his patron, Republican candidate Mark Harris, in the Ninth District…

NCGOPe battles to save state elections board’s Lil’ Kim from mean ol’ Roy

  THIS right here, is akin to an  endorsement from  Thom Tillis right now:     Great competence?  She and her staff have ignored a whole lot of misbehavior on both sides of the aisle on Jones Street.  That’s ONE big reason why THIS GUY…

NC-09: Bishop on fast track to facing McCready in general?

  THAT is apparently what National Journal’s Hotline is reporting.  So take it for what it’s worth: […] NC-09: “Three private polls conducted by both parties in late April suggest that” state Sen. Dan Bishop (R) is on track to secure the nomination in Tuesday’s…

#ncpol: DUMB -DA-DUMB-DUMB

  There’s nothing like having  someone young enough to be your daughter, with 1/100th the life experience and 1/1000th the business experience, tell you that what you’re saying is dumb.  Especially when this particular teenager is a “policy analyst” for Civitas,  allegedly the leader in…
