“Common-sense conservative,” eh?
*That sounds familiar. * (Masthead. *COUGH* Masthead.)
Two young legislators – Ben Moss and Jon Hardister – are running for state labor commissioner. THIS got posted on Twitter:
Interesting. Ben Moss is not included in this newly-formed caucus. (I DO see controversial out-going NC YR chairman Catherine Whiteford pulling a photo-bomb.) Moss counts as a young Republican.
But Moss is already chairman of the House Freedom Caucus. Apparently, Hardister needed a vehicle to make himself look like an actual conservative.
What I do find funny? All of these knuckleheads — Destin Hall, Kyle Hall, Allen Chesser, Jon Hardister, Jarrod Lowery, and Benton Sawrey — voted FOR MEDICAID EXPANSION. (Jake Johnson was the only exception.)
“Looking forward to a productive session passing commonsense conservative legislation,” Johnson tweets.
So, are we now being informed that voting FOR arguably the largest expansion of state government ever counts as “commonsense” and “conservative”?
Good luck with this, fellas. I think you’re going to need it.

As Chair of the Higher Ed committee, Jon Hardister has allowed DEE to overtake every aspect, every department at UNC-CH. And when pressed for action, he always defers to the Board or gives a gobbledygook response to ‘stay tuned’ which is code for ‘do nothing.’
Under Hardister’s tutelage:
Kids will die because of Hardister’s inaction.
Under Hardister’s tutelage:
You might die because of Hardister’s inaction.
Under Hardister’s tutelage, these hiring practices persisted until the Board took action. THIS commitment to ‘diversity,’ which is code for expel White men from society, is what we an expect from Labor commissioner Hardister.
Hardister is arguably the most anti-White faux conservative to ever run for office.
Go get that POS, Ben. Before someone dies…
One last thing about Hardister (and ALL the progressive Republicans posing as conservatives): not one time has he raised concerns about that vaccine which is damaging college kids with myocarditis, irregular periods and now heart attacks.
Absolute shame on the entire NCGOP cabal, who bow to Big Interests and Cody at the detriment of the health of our best and brightest.
Representative Keith Kidwell is the Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.
Did Kidwell support medicare expansion?
Keith Kidwell not only was one of the 21 who voted against the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, but spoke out against it on his radio appearances on the Tom and Bennie show on WTIB talk radio, and urged constituents to go to Raliegh and talk to legislators against it.
Ben Moss is Vice-chairman.
I spoke to several against this as it only seems to support the hospital systems that lost money because of Obamacare. (Donny Lambeth-ex hospital exec and main sponsor, is all for it.) Plus all of the above that is horrible stuff regarding this bill. But here is the ask, what did these so called conservative republicans give in return for this vote? Leverage?
When you see someone putting modifiers on the term “conservative” it usually mean they are a liberal.
Jon Hardister is a full blown liberal who has supported the Democrat position on each of the three worst leftwing policy sellouts by the RINOs to Roy Cooper:
1) Obamacare Medicaid expansion, the biggest expansion of state government in history. A big government “Republican” is no different from a Democrat.
2) letting men into the Ladies restrooms and locker rooms = the repeal of HB2, the bathroom privacy bill, kowtowing to both Cooper and the Gaystapo
3) passing NC’s Green New Deal, HB951 which will raise our electric bills and increase blackout risks, all to placate Greta Thunberg.
Three strikes! HE’S OUT! No conservative should ever vote for liberal Jon Hardister in the primary or general election. If by misfortune, Hardister becomes the nominee, just leave the race blank. He is no different from a Democrat.
Ask Jon Hardister why he received a “covid shot”? If he’s honest with you, he’ll tell you that he was “bullied into it.” If he can be “bullied into” that, ….
