Former U.S. AG addresses leftist whining about “assassination” of terrorists

    Michael Mukasey, a distinguished former federal judge and George W. Bush’s final attorney general, had a great piece in today’s Wall Street Journal tackling whining by Ron Paul, Walter Jones and their comrades about the “assassination” of terrorist mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki: The elimination…

Tell me again why we tossed Bob Etheridge …

    Renee Ellmers came into office  with a lot of promise. She campaigned as a die-hard conservative and embraced the Tea Party, which played a big role in her upset win over incumbent Bob (Who Are You?) Etheridge. The New York Times publishes a…

Frank Palombo (R) for Congress

Congressman Walter Jones’s (RINO-NC) best friend, kooky presidential candidate Ron Paul, has come out to condemn the “assassination” of terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki: Paul said al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born Islamic cleric suspected of involvement in several terror plots, should have been afforded a trial as an American…

Walter Jones has worn out his welcome

I used to be impressed with the 3rd congressional district’s Walter Jones (RINO).   While serving in the state legislature as a Democrat, he frequently broke with the leftist majority in his caucus on key votes.  He lost to Democrat Eva Clayton in a primary…

Bev, bipartisanship, and those silly – silly – silly elections

Well, Madame Governor got us some national news coverage on Tuesday that made us look *VERY WISE* for making her our boss lady. ”Dem Guv calls for ‘suspending elections’ ” screamed the banner headline on The Drudge Report.  The headline was accompanied by a photo…

No profiles in courage for NCGOP in DC

  North Carolina’s Republican Members of Congress have proved — once again — that keeping Speaker John Boehner happy is more important than looking out for the folks struggling through a wretched economy back home. On Wednesday, 48 Republican members of the US House joined…

Leftists demand a free lunch

      We’ve got  real good case study going on right now illustrating how disingenuous leftists and their comrades in the alleged Mainstream Media (MSM) can be when they are out to get someone. In today’s edition of our local paper here in Moore…

If you talk the talk, you better walk the walk

    I hate to say it, but I am leaning toward the N&O on this one.  During the 2010 campaign, U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-Dunn) attacked her opponent, then-incumbent Bob Etheridge, for his use of taxpayer-funded mailings to constituents.  The N&O is reporting that…

9/11: Why we should never forget. Why we should keep fighting.

The alleged mainstream media (MSM) is beside itself — pretending to be patriotic — as it commemorates the 10th anniversary of the 9/11/01 mass murders in New York, DC and Pennsylvania.  They talk about the event like it was a terrible storm, like Hurricane Katrina….
