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 »
Rare good news for Richard Burr
Normally when I’m skeptical of a poll it’s because it’s from a firm I don’t trust or because I don’t think its methodology makes it predictive of the actual election. But here we have Rasmussen Reports polling likely voters, and it’s by far the best poll I’ve seen for Republican Richard Burr in the North Carolina Senate race against Democrat Elaine Marshall.
Tech at Night: Al Franken, Free Press, Trade, California
How do you know when the Net Neutrality proposals of the neo-Marxist group Free Press are really out there? When the 31337* Al Franken is building his mailing list off of promoting the radical fringe’s version of the Net Neutrality agenda, you know you’re off in loony land. Reading his poorly thought out rhetoric gives the same effect. He claims that we need massive government | Read More »

Day Two of the Etheridge Incident.
I’m not particularly surprised that the Etheridge Incident is perturbing the Beltway. It has all the elements that one needs: A genuine, newsworthy scenario (Congressman attacks cameraman); An easily-accessible narrative (Congressman attacks cameraman); A clear video record (note: two cameras, with footage spliced together); A hint of scandal (Was the Congressman drinking?); And a hint of conspiracy (Was the Congressman set up?). Plus, of course, | Read More »
Meet Renee Ellmers (R CAND, NC-02).
Bob Etheridge‘s opponent, but you knew that already. We were able to speak with her briefly: as you can imagine, she’s been busy today. Renee’s site is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Ilario Pantano (R CAND, NC-07).
Ilario Pantano has had his primary, so he’s the official GOP candidate against Mike McIntyre. You probably remember him for (while serving in combat in Iraq) being falsely accused of murder – a statement that will hopefully infuriate quite a few antiwar types out there. Ilario’s site is here.

What to do in Charlotte, NC
If you’re within a reasonable driving distance of Charlotte, NC and want to learn how to organize for a free America, you need to attend this event this weekend. Bar none, this is the best training you will ever get as a conservative activist. As an added bonus? You get to hang out with me. I’m serious. You need to put down your protest signs | Read More »
