Censorship Spreads

Conservatives favorite saying when it comes to college students is usually something along the lines of “wait till they get to the real world.”  This is usually in reference to the insane babying that happens on college campuses by bureaucrats who capture these young adults in some sort of time warp where they are adult enough...

Is the GOP Losing by Winning?

A new WaPo/ABC News poll was all the rage today as it showed what everyone already knew. President Donald Trump is unpopular with everyone but those who voted for him.  Despite a few issues, President Trump maintains the worst approval/disapproval rating of any President in modern history… The president’s approval rating stands at 42 percent,...

Some in GOP Still Fighting Gay Marriage

This is quite possibly the most frivolous bill I have ever seen filed by a Republican… House Bill 780 is titled “Uphold Historical Marriage Act,” and is sponsored by some of the House’s most conservative legislators.

America First

Donald Trump made it very clear on the campaign trail that the America’s foreign policy goals needed a change.  Less focusing on what was good for the world and more focus on what is good for America.  America First!  This fit in well with his populist messaging about ending globalization and helping American workers.  However,...

Non-Partisan Judges?

Last week, the GOP successfully overrode Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of House Bill 100.  HB 100 made District and Superior court judicial races partisan, again. On Thursday, after minimal debate the state Senate voted 32-15 to override Cooper’s veto of House Bill 100, a measure restoring partisan designations on the ballot for Superior and District court elections....

Why Republicans Won

A big article on the front page of The New York Times has liberals shocked.  Apparently, Republicans in rural areas are aware of President Trump’s budget cuts and would still vote for him anyway. “This program makes sense,” said Banks, who was placed by the program into a job as a receptionist for a senior nutrition...

Democrats Torpedo 6th Attempt at HB2 Repeal

That headline seems almost unbelievable considering that is all Governor Cooper and democrats talks about.  The dude could be cutting a ribbon at a new nursery school and find a way to explain why grown men should be allowed in the nursery room girls bathroom.  He truly has a gift.  However, what is bizarre is every...

HB2 On The Clock

Apparently, North Carolina has been put on the clock… “I have confirmed with a contact very close to the NCAA that its deadline for HB2 is 48 hours from now,” said Scott Dupree, who leads the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance, which recruits NCAA and other sporting events to Raleigh. “If HB2 has not been resolved...

North Carolina was...
