#ncpol: Let the ConnectNC Pork-fest shakedown BEGIN !!!

The ruling class is working overtime to convince us to allow them to shake even more change from our pockets to fund their vote-buying and other misadventures.  IF ONLY they worked this hard to get government out of our lives and cut taxes.  We heard…

NC Spin(ning) away from reality on ethics, refugees

For those of you who don’t know — NC Spin is a little show broadcast each week, aired in the wee hours of the morning on obscure stations, and hosted by Tom “Grandpa” Campbell (once #2 to state treasurer Harlan Boyles (D).)   I occasionally…

#ncga: Ronda Rousey, meet Tammy Covil.

There’s an old saying about bringing a knife to a gunfight.  (Was it Indiana Jones?)   Anyway, NC House candidate Tammy Covil shows up at gunfights with both fully-automatic barrels blazing:  Republican Tammy Covil is taking to e-mail again to address questions about ties between…

#ncga: GOP House candidate’s ONLY donor so far is a Democrat House member !!!

Some of you may remember our post on Sharon Pearce — the Davidson County Republican seeking to replace Rayne Brown in the state House.  Curiously, she’s been a frequent donor to major Democrat campaigns. (Even those with Republican opponents.)  Weeeeeeeell.  It gets worse.  We took…

#nc-02: STILL looking for that shame. (Anybody seen it?)

We chronicled our efforts earlier to identify at least ONE shred of shame in Renee Ellmers.   Check out what Big Government Barbie™ is promoting on her campaign website:  Hmmm.  RESTORING conservative principles. Whose? Hers?   Conservative Review has blessed our Nee-nee with a 55 percent…

#ncgop: Once again, the boy wonder is BUSTED.

We’ve got the problem with the IRS filings for Carolina Rising.  We’ve got the highly erroneous attack on Charlotte reporter Nick Ochsner.  We’ve got Mr. Woodhouse pulling a Sgt. Schultz (I know nusssssssing!) about Karl Rove.  And now, we apparently have our fearless boy wonder…

#ncga: GOP House candidate a repeat DEM donor

We did a little digging and found ONE of the announced candidates in the GOP primary for NC House district 81 (Davidson County) has been quite generous to some big, elected Democrats: As a student at Central Davidson High School, Sharon Phillips Pearce knew she…

#ncpol: Woodhouse LIED about ties to Karl Rove

Boy, the decision to hire that reality TV star to run the state GOP operations is sure working out well, huh?  There was that infamous election night interview.  He’s also the focus of a formal complaint about his work with his previous employer.  And also…

#ncpol: The #daoudcrowd’s Ten-grand Man

AJ Daoud is announcing his run for secretary of state next week.  That job depends on serious attention to detail. According to state board of elections records, Daoud has been hit with a TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR penalty.    For what, you ask? The penalty is being…

#nc-02: Does THIS WOMAN have ANY shame? (Any at all?)

That’s what Renee Ellmers has.  This woman must really think her voters are stupid.  Hell, her scam has worked for nearly six years now.  When she ran against Bob Etheridge in 2010, she blasted him for campaigning on the taxpayer dime.  In 2014, and again this…
