The Hubris of Renee Ellmers
In a matter of just a few years at the beginning of the millennium, we succeed in adopting marriage amendments in 30 states. It looked like we were well on our way to preempting one of the greatest assaults on our values. But over the past few years, between the liberal courts, the Obama administration, and blue states adopting gay marriage, we have lost a | Read More »
Richard Hudson is the True Conservative Candidate for Congress
From the diaries. The people of North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District have a tremendous opportunity to replace liberal Larry Kissell with a conservative Republican this year. There are five candidates running in the Republican Primary, but conservatives are rallying behind one individual– Richard Hudson. Richard is a life-long grassroots conservative who has served behind the scenes as District Director for Congressman Robin Hayes and as | Read More »
Tech at Night: Barack Obama covering for Lieberman-Collins power grab via CISPA opposition, Darrell Issa does good on Transparency
In an example of lucky timing, the GSA scandal proved why Darrell Issa’s DATA act was needed. Transparency in government allows for oversight. So the bill passed the House by voice vote. I first floated a while back the idea that this sudden, strident CISPA opposition was roote d in a desire to distract the public from the much stronger and more dangerous Lieberman-Collins bill | Read More »

Mark Meadows for Congress in NC-11
Editor’s note: This is the next endorsement on behalf of The Madison Project PAC in a continuing series of conservative endorsements for the 2012 congressional elections. Earlier this year, Heath Schuler decided that masquerading as a conservative Democrat in the era of Obama and Pelosi had become too cumbersome, and summarily announced his retirement. This western North Carolina district has become even more Republican after | Read More »
NC Democratic party Executive Director Jay Parmley resigns, blames right-wing bloggers…
To refresh people’s memories: allegations came out last week that NC Democratic party Executive Director Jay Parmley had sexually harassed a male staffer (the Daily Caller noted yesterday that local reports are saying that said staffer was also allegedly fired after making a complaint; if that’s true, then there’s a bigggggggggg problem going on in North Carolina right now for the Democratic party*). Anyway, Parmley | Read More »
RS Interview: Dr. Scott Keadle (R-CAND, NC-08 PRI).
North Carolina’s Eighth District is currently held by Larry Kissell, with an emphasis on ‘currently;’ some long-overdue redistricting reform in that state ended up making the two-term Democrat’s seat… precarious. I talked to one of the conservatives running for the Republican nomination: Dr. Scott Keadle, a dentist and former county commissioner from the region. We talked about the race, as well as a little about | Read More »
Scott Keadle for Congress in NC-8
Editor’s note: Here is the latest bold endorsement on behalf of The Madison Project. There are few states that will provide conservatives with as many electoral opportunities as North Carolina will this year. Due to successful Republican redistricting, vulnerable blue dog Democrats, and several retirements, we have an opportunity to elect up to 5 new Republicans. In past years, to the extent that we were | Read More »
Breaking: Heath Shuler (D, NC) cuts and runs.
And it sounds like it’s not to run for Governor of North Carolina, either. The relevant text: This was not an easy decision. However, I am confident that it is the right decision. It is a decision I have weighed heavily over the past few months. I have always said family comes first, and I never intended to be a career politician. I am ready | Read More »
DNC Union Favoritism Forcing Furloughs Of Charlotte’s Non-Union Hotel Workers?
In February, when the Democratic National Committee chose Charlotte, North Carolina as the host city for its September 2012 convention, it left the door wide open for the Charlotte-area’s union-free workforce to be discriminated against in favor union workers. Although Charlotte’s Democrat Mayor, Anthony Foxx (who is facing GOP challenger Scott Stone in Tuesday’s election), has denied the allegation, it appears Foxx has been misleading | Read More »
Governor Bev Perdue of North Carolina Wants to Cancel Elections
Would it be a violation of Godwin’s Law to point out that even the Nazis kept having elections even when we were bombing them? Heck, the United States continued having elections in the Civil War, World War I, and World War II. We didn’t put democracy on hold just because we felt like it. There is this thing called the constitution. But the constitution seems | Read More »
2nd NC redistricting map more pointed than 1st one.
When the first North Carolina redistricting map came out at the beginning of July, Democrats of course bawled like stuck calves. Speaking objectively, this wasn’t a surprise: the way that it was set up, it put four Democratic Congressmen – Larry Kissell, Mike McIntyre, Brad Miller, & Heath Shuler – at a serious disadvantage in the 2012 elections. Put simply, the map threatened to flip | Read More »
First North Carolina redistricting map!
And it firmly embraces the old folk saying: What goes around, comes around. This is the first of three new maps (all of which will be coming out of the newly Republican-controlled state legislature): To give you an idea of the shift (which is already forecasting DOOM for at least three North Carolina Democrats), here’s the old map:
Did Sen. McCaskill (MO) backstab Gov. Perdue (NC)?
(H/T: Say Anything) having St. Louis for the 2012 Democratic convention, on the rationale that having the convention in Missouri would be the equivalent of painting a big electoral target on her back for all those awful, awful Tea Partiers. Which is… interesting. First off, I’m pretty sure that Missouri Republicans – which had a decent-to-good run last year (cemented control of the state legislature, | Read More »
Marxists Meet, Part II: Dante’s Inferno — The Marxist Plan to Use Race to Overthrow the U.S.
This is the second in a three-part series of posts. To read Part One, go here. ______________________ Not long ago, for someone to say that Marxists were using race to foster their socialist revolution, Lefties would rise up in chorus-like fashion and scream “McCarthyism!” Now, however, rather than dredging up a name that few young people today know, the Leftists cry “racism!” Yet, with the | Read More »
B. J. Lawson Might Shake Up NC-4
I’ve been saying for a while that there are congressional districts out there that’ll flip to the GOP in 30 days that were not even on the radar. Put NC–4 on the radar. Democrat Congressman David Price is running against Dr. B. J. Lawson who is giving Price a run for his money. Several polls have come out in the past couple of weeks showing | Read More »
