#ncga: Charity calls out Tarte on his PORK

I thought it was unusual to see $200,000 tucked away in the recent budget agreement for “classroom supplies.”   Those are normally appropriations handled by local governing entities — city councils, county commissioners, and school boards. The budget agreement even cited a charity called DonorsChoose…

#ncpol: Takin’ care of business.

The Raleigh establishment raved about Democrats Richard Moore and Janet Cowell during their respective tenures in the state treasurer’s office.  Current treasurer Dale Folwell has been quietly slaving away, during his short time in  office, to clean up the mess those two left him. Folwell…

#ncga: Jones St. GOP set to up spending by ONE BILLION above 2017-2018

This is quite a nasty surprise to break on us the eve of legislative primaries across the state.  Here it is straight from Speaker Timmy’s office: Legislative leaders on Monday hailed the news that Republicans’ pro-growth economic policies have generated North Carolina’s fourth consecutive revenue…

#ncpol: Marine’s death earns Hudson some unwanted attention

Here’s the story from Big League Politics: In late January, a Marine Reconnaissance Scout died in a multi-mission parachute training accident in Coolidge, Arizona. “Alex was one in a million. Always had a smile on his face,” said Noelia Davis, the fallen Marine’s cousin. According…

Rand is right.

It’s almost hard to believe senators from the alleged conservative party would talk about one of their more devoutly conservative colleagues like this: Rand Paul took a stand, consequences be damned. And Senate Republicans are livid about it. After driving the government into a brief shutdown…

#ncga: A NCGOP surrender on spending?

Statists LOVE to tell us that spending MORE of other people’s money is vital to good governance.  Democrats live and die by that principle. But the NCGOP — with a tenuous grip on the seats of power in Raleigh — appears to be jumping on…
