Chipping away at our rights in the name of efficiency and national security

We’ve got some pretty big races for US House and US Senate on the November ballot here in North Carolina.  One very significant item on the November  ballot is not getting the attention it deserves:  a proposed amendment to the state constitution allowing you to…

NC-02: Name-calling, no seating & tardiness. (Oh, my.) An amnesty showdown at Renee’s office

I wish Renee Ellmers had shown as much devotion to fighting ObamaCare and cutting the size of government as she has to promoting amnesty for illegal aliens.  Every survey I’ve seen shows ObamaCare and the economy as the top concerns on voters’ minds, but Ellmers…

NC-02: Ellmers targets Laura Ingraham after on-air amnesty meltdown

Some people JUST don’t know when to shut up.   Congresswoman Renee Ellmers got her posterior roughed up a wee bit by nationally-syndicated conservative radio host Laura Ingraham today.  Ingraham chastised the North Carolina Republican for regurgitating liberal pro-amnesty talking points and ignoring cold, hard…

#NCGA: A short session surprise?

A piece of legislation that has raised the ire of Civitas and other Tea Party-aligned groups,  and has been voted down twice in the state House, has been resurrected and sent to the House Rules Committee.  According to a rather surprising source — who has…

Thom & Bru: Mutual back-scratching at its best

Thom Tillis and Harold Brubaker have quite a special political bond. They are the only two Republican speakers of the North Carolina House since Reconstruction.  The two became very close upon Tillis joining the House in 2006.  On the eve of Brubaker’s 2012 departure from…

Nullification coming to the courtroom?

Nullification is rearing its head as a very hot topic in this era of the Tea Party and widespread disgust with governmental overreach.  Nullification is the belief that states, communities and their residents have the right to nullify, or overrule, laws handed down by the…

Attorney General Roy NIFONG

Apparently, our esteemed state attorney general learned NOTHING from the Duke lacrosse case.  In that 2006 case, you had white defendants and a black victim — complemented by a media circus and a pack of howling, protest-marching race pimps.  it was Bonfire of The Vanities come…
