#ncgop: Oops, he did it AGAIN.

Some people learn — painfully — not to touch the hot stove. feuding-brothers-800 Others keep touching the hot stove hoping that it will eventually not burn their fingers. 

Larry Holmquist of Greensboro filed Monday to officially make the GOP primary for US Senate a threesome.  On Tuesday,  NCGOP HQ fired off THIS email:

Republicans –

Our country’s national security faces a critical time. Americans now see terrorism as the number one problem facing our nation. We need solutions not more of the same failed policies of the last seven years.

As Hillary Clinton, chief architect of President Obama’s foreign policy, unveils her counterterrorism strategy, it’s important to remember she has supported the very failed approach that has made our nation less safe. Hillary Clinton even said President Obama’s approach to counter ISIS “is close to mine” following his recent address laying out his strategy to combat the terrorist group.

Thankfully, Senator Burr, Senator Tillis and Governor McCrory understand the threat facing our country. As Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Burr is fighting every day to protect North Carolina and our country, pushing for a more expansive response to defeat ISIS. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Senator Tillis has gone on the record calling out President Obama’s failure to outline a strategy to combat ISIS. Governor McCrory has taken actionable steps to protect North Carolinians from terror threats by halting the intake of Syrian refugees until the federal government can ensure the accuracy of its vetting process.

Our leaders know we need more than the same failed approach and will continue to fight to keep our state and country safe.


Okay.  TWO of the three politicians being praised there have primary opponents.  (Former state Rep. Robert Brawley is challenging Pat McCrory’s reelection.) 

NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse just got subjected to a verbal whipping over a previous email promoting Burr.  He went on an extended apology tour — begging party officials and activists for forgiveness and promising that nothing like that would happen again on his watch.  But here we are ONE WEEK LATER dealing with it all over again.

Here is the header revealing the sender details:


Granted, Dallas’s name is nowhere on this email.  But, according to the email address, it came from the NCGOP communications team which is under histumblr_nlwepl4JES1u89dyuo1_500 direct supervision.

Are we talking incompetence here?  Someone in over his head in trying to be a manager?  Or are we dealing with someone who is simply a loyal servant to his establishment masters? 

Regardless — as we asked with Curtis Watkins, WHEN is enough ENOUGH?

  1. The FBI director admitted last week that the Muslim refugees could not be properly vetted. Yesterday. Dick Burr was quoted ,at his favorite news agency, The Hill.com saying any pause on immigration would be a “huge mistake”. So, the immigrants can not be vetted but yet a pause would be a huge mistake. Burr is endangering this nation with Lax immigration standards but wants to store American citizens phone calls and emails. BURR is worse than Obama and DALLAS WOODHOUSE is a pathetic liar!

  2. Same ole crap. If the NCGOP is going to do campaign ads throughout the primary, the county committees should start endorsing.

    1. Or at least do an ”endorsement lite” like Woodhouse has just done. Send out material that exposes Burr’s very lousy and liberal voting record. Play the Woodhouse game of not using the words ”elect” or ”re-elect”. Just expose Burr’s awful voting record. Two can play that game!

  3. Who is this message from the party trying to reach ????

    This is the kind of stuff that gets sent to the spam folder and the trash can when mailed and when the fundraisers call just let it go straight to voicemail

    The problem with the NCGOP is they have lost the focus in the state office of document a thing called the party platform that the delegates at convention pass. The State office needs to promote conservative values not people and when people do not vote in support of the values in the platform it is state parties job to call them out no matter what office they hold. Republicans elected that do not vote on the issues in accordance with the party platform are the ones doing the most harm to the party and hindering the parties path forward

    platform over people this is the winning combo for 2016 and beyond lets spend our time educating the public about our values and let our values bring them to the polls so we can win in 2016 and beyond

    1. This email has no legitimate purpose. It is not a fundraiser. It does not promote any party event. It just promotes specific candidates by connecting them to a particular issue. The whole purpose of this fluff piece seems to be Woodhouse trying to test his limits to see if he can get away with promoting his primary candidates this way by leaving off the words ”elect” or ”re-elect” and inserting the party’s name instead of the chairman’s name. His intent is very much the same, and this is just as much an abuse of power to promote primary candidates as what he did before. It is a lot like his making his preferred primary candidate the keynote speaker at the Hall of Fame but leaving the other two out completely He is mocking the grassroots with this email. Throwing in Tillis’ name does not make it any better.

      Then, of course, the record of Burr and Tillis on national security is very problematic, since border security is national security, and they do not have a very good record on that. Also, they do not have a very good record on keeping dangerous aliens out. So Woodhouse is distorting their records.

      Woodhouse has just underlined why he needs to be removed.

  4. “National security” is nothing more than a brainwashing technique known as ultimate consequence. Terrorism is nothing more than a pretext for insurance fraud.
    We can all agree, insurance fraud should be prosecuted, and there is no statue of limitations when murder is involved. Yet when the federal government stands to make the greatest expansion in a century, the noble lie is created. Unlike all the hype surrounding subjective material, the LAWS OF PHYSICS are objective and can not be broken.
    NC constitution Article I Sec. 14. Freedom of speech and press: “Freedom of speech and of the press are two of the great bulwarks of liberty and therefore shall never be restrained, but every person shall be held responsible for their abuse.”
    “Our” main stream media (MSM) is generated north of the Mason Dixon line, and they have managed to brainwash the general public into believing things that only happen in cartoons. Many people resist through cognitive dissonance, not even realizing the truth is more than they are willing to grasp. It comes down to this basic statement:
    Aluminum in free space can NOT penetrate a larger piece of rigid structural steel at subsonic speed (STP@SL).
    There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true. The other is to refuse to accept what is true.~ Soren Kierkegaard
    The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.~ W. Dyer
    Mediocre minds usually dismiss anything which reaches beyond their own understanding.~ Francois de La Rochefoucauld
    Prof of concept can be seen in history, as a B-25 Mitchell struck the Empire State building July 28th, 1945. The facade of the ESB is granite, and masonry has negligible tensile strength($40 BILLION, and the said banking industries PAY NOTHING UP FRONT. Not even the “Boston marathon bombing” was considered a terrorist attack by the standards set. But then again, terrorist don’t attack civilian targets, they attack government targets. This is pure profit-boosting for the banking cartel, and your children will continue to pay the carpetbagger’s tax as long as the elder generation believes the national news media/federal government lies that don’t even hold up to the LAWS OF PHYSICS.
    The free market punishes irresponsibility. Government rewards it.~ Harry Browne
    A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one!~ Alexander Hamilton
    Government: Derived from the Latin verb Guverno, Guvernare meaning “To control” & the Latin noun Mens, Mentis meaning “Mind”; ergo TO CONTROL THE MIND.
    The bowl of alphabet soup just keeps getting bigger, from DHS to TSA. And these are just the ones the general public knows about, there is no telling how many new regulatory agencies have been created due to MSM propaganda. What kind of world will you leave you future generations?
    The worst part is, this could all be avoided IF the NC legislature would ENFORCE THE NC CONSTITUTION (Art I Sec 14). Here is a NYT article titled “Message Machine: Behind TV Analysts, Pentagon’s Hidden Hand” http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/20/us/20generals.html?_r=3& Simply requiring the MSM to identify who is paying those pushing the political propaganda, would go a long way to inform the general public the beneficiaries of war money.
    Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.~ Jim Morrison

  5. We all know Dallas is working for McCrory & Burr. He’s trying to keep Reince Priebus happy because he hasn’t raised any money and needs RNC to keep the doors open. He made big $$ promises…… right. LOL!
    He’s a boot licker and has ZERO respect for the Executive Committee yet he works at their pleasure. They need to let him go.
    He ran AFP in the dirt. The Koch brothers let him walk. Now he’s our problem? Make him someone else’s problem.

  6. Getting back to Woodhouse, I wonder if he will come on these boards to try to explain away his latest transgression? The party really needs to replace him with someone who knows what he is doing.
