#ncga: As the House Screams

    If you were watching the goings-on on Jones Street yesterday,  you might have thought you stumbled across a C-SPAN broadcast of the British House of Commons.  THAT is the place where they tend to get rowdy and bawdy.   Rep. Deb Butler (D-Wilmington)…

Solar goons, Cooper ramming through Big Brother-ish “Clean Energy Plan”

  It’s been crafted by Cooper allies on the state Utilities Commission — along with some help from some bought-and-paid-for solar goons on Jones Street.  The public is being allowed very little say on the matter. Even though it will have a tremendous impact on…

Weasels. Everywhere we look. WEASELS!

  We opened the door earlier on this subject — folks in the NCGOPe selling out and throwing in with the same enviro-wackos who have been trying to kill the party’s candidates for decades.   Well, we’ve found more.   Matt Bales was the political…

The unholy alliance between abortionists and the enviro-wackos

  This is something that has folks on the left and the right perturbed.  (For different reasons, though.)  One of the more significant money-men behind this political alliance is apparently a North Carolinian named Fred Stanback.   Here’s the story on the moneyed Salisbury resident…

Solar Goons buy, own GOPe while beating up conservatives like Dan Bishop

  The Environmental Defense Fund has been really busy in North Carolina elections.  They funded and supported senator Bob Steinburg (R).       The EDF & friends have weaved quite a tangled web throughout North Carolina government and politics.  Take solar and wind apologist…
