Kelly Hastings’s 2015 campaign reports: So, um, *nice*, they got filed THRICE!

I for one am not comforted by guys and gals, charged with making important dollars-and-cents decisions for our state, struggling with properly filling out their campaign finance reports.  (Looking at YOU, Mr. Saine.) For Speaker Moore’s carpool buddy Kelly Hastings, it took THREE ATTEMPTS (and…

Mark Meadows: Evidence shows Obama directed FBI spying on Trump

The North Carolina Republican, representing the state’s 11th congressional district, dropped this bombshell today in an interview with Raleigh radio personality Patrick Johnson.  (We obtained a tape of a segment of the interview, which has yet to be publicly broadcast.) Meadows says on the tape:…

#ncga: Aaaaaaand let’s go to the tape …

Mealy-mouthedness by politicians is, unfortunately, the rule instead of the exception.  But it is sooooooooo delicious when you manage to catch said conduct on videotape. Take for instance, this video of state Rep. Bob Steinburg (R-Edenton) compiled by activists with the group NC Voters for…

#ncga: Raleigh special interests betting BIG on McInnis

They’ve backed driver licenses for illegals, tax increases, corporate welfare giveaways, the repeal of HB2, and Common Core.  Now, The NC Chamber is giving its blessing and endorsement to the renomination and reelection of state senator Tom McInnis (R-Richmond).   McInnis is locked in a…

#ncpol: Another of Dallas’s warm bodies?

We all remember Dallas Woodhouse running around trying to get anybody with a pulse to file as a Republican candidate for the General Assembly.  One of those warm bodies has been disqualified for, apparently, registering to vote as an afterthought. Here’s another one of those…

Have solar goons shanghaied Lt. Dan?

I’m seeing some things on Twitter that are making me a wee bit uncomfortable.  Here’s one: And HERE is another: Kairos Governmental Affairs and Betsy McCorkle are leading mouthpieces for renewable energy government mandates and government subsidies of solar and wind energy.  The fact that…

More proof: ANYONE can run for Congress.

We previously featured the inane rantings of one Adam Coker.  He is one of a gaggle of Democrat candidates out there competing for the honor to represent us in Washington. Well, Adam is BACK: Wages have not gone up in 25 years? Well, THE FACTS say…

WRAL’s Cambridge Analytica / NCGOP “nothing-burger”

We made our peace with the UK about — oh — 200 years ago, but Raleigh’s WRAL still wants to see something nefarious emanating from our former motherland.  It’s interesting to see WRAL tut-tutting over someone else’s alleged integrity indiscretions while it (a) continues to…

GOPe good ol’ boys batter conservative women (Mrs. Nix has NO COMMENT.)

Liberals like to poke at the GOP (and conservatives) as being “anti-woman.” I’m observing some pretty disturbing trends here in 2018 that don’t exactly help refute that charge, I know of at least three outstanding conservative women on the GOP ballot for the General Assembly…
