If you don’t watch Marc Rotterman’s  UNC-TV program, and don’t listen to The Chad Adams Radio Show — believe me, that universe includes A WHOLE LOT of people — you might not know of The North State Journal (NSJ).  The NSJ was founded right about…

In March 2016, the GOPe troglodytes seeking to oust duly-elected NCGOP chairman Hasan Harnett needed the ‘Mother of All Bombs’ in order to perpetrate the coup de grace.  They found their MOAB courtesy of The North State Journal.     Thanks to these so-called “journalists,” gossip…

#ncga: AND the arbiter of good taste on social media isssssssss …. Laura Leslie ???

I know. It’s kinda hard to believe she’s got the cojones to pop her head back up out of her hole after her performance last year.  Larry Pittman using the words Hitler and Lincoln in the same sentence?  How about Laura Leslie blaming Christians who backed…

#ncpol: Nick Ochsner swerves hard left into Binky-ville

#ncpol: Keep party affiliation a secret — JUST LIKE John Edwards’s girlfriend.

That’s the advice that allegedly-still-living-and-breathing crackerjack N&O columnist Rob Christensen is giving legislators in Raleigh:  During the middle of the last century, there was a reform effort in North Carolina to depoliticize municipal government, removing power from the old ward bosses and making city government…

#ncpol: At The N&O, numbers and economics stuff is HARD!

Rob Christensen, that irascible leftist coot who inspired the title character in “Weekend at Bernie’s”, is back again showing his utter lack of comprehension of basic math and economic principles: For most of the 20th century, North Carolina’s income tax operated on a simple principle…

Remember those ‘mostly peaceful’ Charlotte riots?

What a shameless liar young Mr. Colin Campbell has become!  The N&O propagandist is making Saddam’s “Baghdad Bob” look like an absolute piker. Here young Mr. Campbell is mocking an ‘economic terrorism’ bill moving through the General Assembly:  Protesters who damage property or block traffic…
