N&O P.O.S. kicks a dead man’s corpse

WRAL political reporter Mark Binker passed away in 2017.  During his career. We begged to differ with a lot of his output.  In our opinion,  Mark regularly abused the freedoms granted him under the First Amendment.  We gave him pure hell for it too. When…

#ncpol: Our (“Corrupt”?) useful idiot in DC

I’m more of the opinion that Dick Burr is just not that smart. But this blogger has him pegged with the (bad) c-word: The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) is the same committee that Michael Caputo told: “God damn you to hell“, and for…

#nc-03: Walter Jones not done yet with Scott Dacey

The votes may be counted and the results finalized for the May primary.  But the first place finisher in the 3rd district GOP congressional primary, Walter Jones, is not quite finished with third-place finisher Scott Dacey. According to a statement issued from the Jones campaign,…

#ncpol: About those Civitas polls …

*”Hey, if the flagship political organ of The Pope Empire says things are bad for Republicans, THAT IS NEWS.”* Something like that runs through the mostly-empty heads in driveby media newsrooms (and Democrat campaign offices) across the state every time Civitas releases something that might…

Steamed about high gas prices? Tell THIS GUY.

I am sure there is quite a bit of sticker shock going around as people gas up for their holiday travels.  Our local paper here in Moore County — which, as you may know, was brought down  from the mountain by Moses himself — published…

#ncpol: FXD for NC-03?

That’s the word we’re hearing — that former Civitas boss Francis X. DeLuca (FXD) is seriously contemplating a run for the congressional seat to be vacated by the retiring Walter Jones in 2020. DeLuca, since leaving Civitas, has stepped up his media game in the…

*”Testing, testing,1,2,3 — Racism. Cruelty. Racism. Is this on?”*

You can’t take your kids with you when you go to jail. You can’t take your kids with you to your job (in MOST cases).  You can’t take your kids with you when you are admitted to the hospital. Departments of Social Services all over…

#ncsen: Tom Farr STILL left hanging out there

I am sure Thomas Farr is starting to feel like a ping-pong ball.  DC politicians and special interests have batted him and his reputation back and forth since 2006 over the promise of a federal judgeship. The leftist point of contention over Farr?  He worked…

Patrick McHenry’s BFF in DC calls for mob violence

No, NOT Dee Stewart.  (The OTHER one.)  It wasn’t long ago that congressman Patrick McHenry was cooing over his best friend on-the-other-side-of-the-aisle Maxine Waters (D-CA): […]”I’ve got a very good relationship with and have been able to pass serious legislation with Maxine Waters. I’ve got…

‘Tricky Dick’ Burr: Big-spending tree-hugger

We told you a little earlier about our senior senator conspiring with one other RINO and ALL DEMOCRATS to kill substantial federal spending cuts in the Senate.  The Wall Street Journal has more on WHY ol’ Mauze did it: Republicans have had a rough week,…
