#ncpol: Holly Grange throws a fit

  “Do you know WHO I am ?????”   That’s a question that likely opens a lot of doors for state Rep. Holly Grange in the vicinity of Raleigh’s Jones Street and among Wilmington’s country-club set.  But earlier this week — out among “the real…

Lt. Dan launches, N&O foams at the mouth (collectively).

  I swear.  I haven’t seen the newsroom at The N&O this agitated and aggravated since the late, great Jesse Helms prowled the halls of the US Senate.  Lt. Governor Dan Forest has announced his intention to evict Roy Cooper — who did NOTHING for…

Did Clinton crony have financial interest in Grange family business?

  Opinions seem to differ on that question:   Sidney Blumenthal has repeatedly claimed that he had no financial interests in a company seeking contracts in post-Gaddafi Libya that he pitched to Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state.   But notes from the…

The ‘Lady Parts’ Brigade sets its sights on the 2020 Governor’s Race

  They got a  Democrat elected governor and a Republican and a Democrat elected senator in North Carolina.  (None of those ended up working out very well.)     They tried to get someone with ‘lady parts’ elected to the Third Congressional District, but THAT…

N&O troll tries to clothesline Lt. Dan

  I swear.  Being vicious, smarmy, and dishonest must be a written-in-stone requirement for political writers at The money-bleeding, floundering N&O.  The little special-needs Speck boy currently holding down the job seems to keep himself afloat by cribbing from The Internet.  The Speck boy is…

#ncpol: Oh, look. A PUSH poll.

    We told you earlier about forces very very very very close to Thom Tillis trying to organize a primary challenge to Lt. Gov. Dan Forest in next year’s gubernatorial race.  Well, someone has already gotten  started with a push poll that appears to…

#ncpol: Thom Tillis trying to thwart Dan Forest’s gubernatorial bid?

  That’s the skinny coming from behind several POWERFUL closed doors in DC and Raleigh.  (As if we needed ANOTHER reason to HATE Thom Tilli$$$$.)   Why, you ask, would this amoral, unprincipled *genius* be attempting something like this?  I’m told that Tillis and his…

#hayesscandal: How to earn yourself a primary challenger

  With the 2016 downfall of Pat McCrory, Dan Forest was thrust into the spotlight as the NCGOP’s top statewide dog. It was like being called up from the farm team to the major leagues.   Prior to that, for Forest, it was nice and…

Lefties PRAYING for Tillis or McCrory 2020 gubernatorial run

If you pay close enough attention  to  liberals, they will actually give you clues as to what they’re really up to.  Take this recent poll from  that leftist clown car known as Public Policy Polling. They’re showing Pat McCrory (41% to 45% for Cooper) and…

#ncpol: STILL not getting it …

Hillary Clinton can’t get past November.  And, apparently, neither can Pat McCrory:  Former Gov. Pat McCrory says Trump voters who voted for the Libertarian candidate in the governor’s race were partly to blame for his loss last year, and he says he’ll wait until next…
