#ncpol: Dale Folwell v. BIG HEALTH CARE (Ready to Rumble?)

In the NC House, Dale Folwell demonstrated over and over that he didn’t come to Raleigh to join the clique and make nice.  Here in the age of Trump, Folwell is shaking things up and maintaining that bulldog style from his perch in the state…

#ncpol: We are seeing the future. (And it looks like Georgia.)

Well, lookee here: The Education Department said Wednesday that it is investigating whether a Georgia school district’s policy allowing transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice created a “hostile environment” for a 5-year-old girl who said she was sexually assaulted in a school…

#ncpol: House Republican caucus poo-poos concept of spending cuts

There are so many bizarre things happening this political season, I am expecting to start hearing voice-overs from Rod Serling. It wasn’t long ago that General Assembly Republicans were boasting about spending MORE than the Democrats.  Now, we have the House Republican Caucus political operation…

#ncga: Has Bobby got it in the bag?

(And if so, is it a Donna Karan or Gucci bag?  Inquiring minds want to know.) I’ve heard from more than one Outer Banks voter about the scarcity of Republican US House candidate Bobby Hanig at candidate forums and other public events.  Granted, the guy…

NCGOPe all-stars cheer Easley crony’s staying power in Raleigh swamp

Every once in a while we get some evidence that — like in DC — Raleigh, and state government, are run by ONE big government-loving PARTY.  Look at what popped up on Twitter: Dan Gerlach was appointed head of The Golden Leaf Foundation in 2008….

Next up for UNC snowflakes, rioters and statue-toppers: Kenan Stadium ???

That’s the hypothesis of the wise OLD man (and blogger) on the mountaintop, BobLee, who I frequently seek out for life-affirming warm fuzzies.  And, judging from one of the latest offerings from the UNC school paper, he may be on to something: Around thirty UNC…

#ncga: Indicted Steinburg aide ALSO working on Steinburg Invitational?

Judging from this email, it would appear to be so. Most politicians who have aides under indictment send them off to go spend more time with their families.  Not Bob Steinburg. Steinburg has Diana London, currently under indictment for one felony count of embezzlement, (1)…

#ncga: Keepin’ it CLASSY.

We told you earlier about the resignation of a Moore County GOP official over state senator Tom McInnis.  The official is not just leaving his party office, according to the local paper in Moore County, but is also leaving the party itself: […] In the…

#ncga: It’s GOOD to be the Ki — um, $peaker.

As a NC House GOPer, how on Earth do you have the nerve to lambaste the bad ol’ Jim Black days when you have David Lewis and Tim Moore out front as your leaders? A few days back, we learned that Speaker Timmy had latched…
