Raleigh throwing fracking under the bus?

It’s looking like quite a bipartisan effort. The North Carolina Oil & Gas Commission is set to finally hold its FIRST meeting ever in Sanford on Wednesday, September 20th.   Partially, I’m told, the meeting will deal with ordinances passed by Lee and Chatham county…

Loving those falling gas prices? Thank FRACKING.

It’s created a huge economic boom in the Dakotas.  Environmentalists want you to believe it will poison your children and kill your ability to have children. In any case, fracking is revolutionizing the energy industry.  It’s giving our economy a much needed boost. Many are…

Unhinged leftist alert: Enviro-wacko spews big dose of hate at NC fracking board chairman

As conservatives, we’re used to being lectured by those “compassionate” and “tolerant” folks on the port side of the political spectrum about how we need to stop being so mean.  It’s funny.  Some of the meanest, nastiest, most vile language I hear in political discussions…

#NCGA: Senate weathers leftist disinformation, House reticence and wisely lifts fracking moratorium

We’re often quite hard on the honorables on Raleigh’s Jones Street. It actually gives us some pleasure to cheer them for doing something sensible.  The Democrats, howling leftist activists, and their echo chamber in the legacy media have been tying the effort to bring fracking…

MSM: Mindlessly spout lefty tripe? Congrats. YOU’RE AN EXPERT.

  It’s amazing to see the double standard the rapidly-fading mainstream media uses in identifying “credible” sources.  It appears that you merely have to spout lefty talking points in order to be quoted verbatim and cooed over by WRAL or The McClatchy Gang. Some of…

N&O fact-checked on fracking by reader & WRAL

  Fracking has been legalized by the legislature.  But the professional left and their transcriptionists at The N&O are still trying to scare the hell out of the ‘great unwashed’ beyond the Raleigh beltline. Yesterday, the N&O featured an item in ‘Under The Dome’ with…

Red Light, Green Light: The Pilot labels Democrat’s “mistake” a GOP dirty trick

The Democrat machine operatives who own — and control the editorial content of — our thrice-weekly Emmy Award-winning, Nobel Prize-nominated local newspaper are at it again: stretching the truth and twisting the facts to protect Bev Perdue, Barack Hussein Obama and all things leftist. This…

They came. They saw. They overrode.

        Low-level staffers in the governor’s office are likely scrambling today to ID the truck that ran over their boss lady — THREE TIMES — this week. The folks over on Jones Street successfully overrode Bev’s vetoes of (1) a rewrite of…

Capitalism under attack AGAIN at The Pilot

  Well, I have to give Steve Bouser some credit.  He FINALLY grew a pair and attached his name to one of his far-far-far-left rants.    Today’s target is the oil industry’s contribution to the economic boom in North Dakota.  That state is one of…
