(HT: Fred) They used to be right! Tucker Carlson does an amazing job laying out the evidence for the left's dizzying flip-flop: Continue reading

A agree, Fred, and feel equally disgusted. What a bunch of cowards! As I said previously, they ought to put the monument back up in its original location, and place a secure, transparent enclosure around it. And they ought to fire all the faculty and TA's who are playing political games. There is intense competition for faculty positions, and conservatives are often shut out. The Board needs to change the entire playing field.
Under state law, the UNC Board of Governors was required to restore Silent Sam to its former location or a similarly prominent location within 90 days. The law even specifies that any new site must be of similar "honor". That time frame has now elapsed. Tearing down Silent Sam was... Continue reading

Dear friends within the media/left complex: I know the news of the Obamacare ruling issued by the U.S. District Court Judge in Texas-- Reed O'Connor-- must have been a bit of a jolt. You have, after all, had a great deal invested in this particular law. There is a lesson... Continue reading

(Copied from Conservative Review) The above chart provides a very dramatic picture with regard to what our country is experiencing with immigration. For much of the last century, levels have hovered around 200,000 new citizens naturalized per year. But since the 1980's and 1990's, that number has shot up to... Continue reading

The North Carolina General Assembly today passed legislation that allows a new primary in the event the 9th congressional district election must be repeated. This is extraordinarily convenient for the Raleigh GOP establishment to shunt Mark Harris aside. Harris defeated an establishment GOP incumbent/insider in the previous primary-- an unpardonable...

There has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth over the 9th Congressional District race. Fraud has been detected in Bladen and Robeson counties, and was apparently initiated by both major political parties. I don't believe that Mark Harris was aware of what was being done to help him there;... Continue reading

There was much anticipation over the prospect of Brett Kavanaugh being elevated to the Supreme Court. It became a bloody battle to get him there. Some of us, however, were cautioning that he might not turn out to be as good as he was represented to be. We were told... Continue reading

Fred, once again, we did not hear hardly a word yesterday from the Republican-controlled UNC Board of Governors. It is as if it is a non-entity in the face of all the egregious things taking place.
Wayne Allensworth, Chronicles: What the Yellow Vests represent is nothing less than a nascent general uprising against globalization and the dispossession of the nations of the West. Watching the unfolding French crisis from America, it doesn’t strain one’s imagination to envision our own social, demographic, and political crisis getting uglier,... Continue reading

Aaron Wolf, Chronicles: This does not go without saying, so therefore it must be said: Conservatives should not be shocked by the behavior of Democrats and their water-carrying media. In every way imaginable, the left has begged us to believe that they are the sort of diabolical creatures that will... Continue reading

It is not a story that is being loudly or widely disseminated. But it seems that nearly 100 teaching assistants and instructors at UNC Chapel Hill have gone on strike over the proposed siting of the Silent Sam memorial in a new campus-based museum. (Remain mindful that this is a... Continue reading

Recall the windstorms we had this fall. We had widespread, prolonged power outages in the city of Greensboro. Trees snapped and damaged power lines and other electrical equipment. Several years ago, Mayor Nancy Vaughan initiated one of her foolish crusades against Duke Energy. When the power company was attempting to... Continue reading

Former President George H.W. Bush had many good personal qualities. He occupied the Oval Office at the apogee of American strength and influence. But many conservatives would argue that he was not a good leader. Let's remember that "Bush-ism" has controlled the GOP since 1988-- and the following articles reveal,... Continue reading

I agree, Fred. And what will be the safety risk associated with waiting for the mental health professional to show up? Presumably, they will not materialize within 5 or 10 minutes.They might have to wait for an hour or more depending on the situation.
The Republican Congress over the last two years has achieved virtually nothing of major consequence. It has failed to enact conservative, constitutional legislation; and it has refused to pass the reforms President Trump has sought regarding borders, immigration and the wall. Even the tax bill that was passed was a... Continue reading

John Hammer at the Rhino Times reports that the city has decided to hire mental health professionals within the police department to assist officers responding to situations involving individuals with psychiatric or substance abuse problems. We had posted here last week regarding the state Medical Examiner's Office calling the death... Continue reading

The long awaited report from the UNC Chapel Hill Board of Trustees recommends that the Silent Sam statue be placed in a new history museum to be located in an obscure part of the campus-- around the far south edge apparently. Carolina Journal reports: (UNC Chapel Hill Chancellor Carol) Folt... Continue reading

Thanks, Fred. I hope the GOP does not make an error of epic proportions with this bill. Some seem to want it badly; and they are unfortunately very foolish. As I said in my original post, I am in favor of eliminating non-federal crimes from the federal courts and federal law enforcement agencies. We need to be guided by the Constitution's original meaning. For truly federal crimes, I hope we are not engaging in wishful thinking.
Yes, Fred, the son-in-law is a problem-- in many ways. You might be aware that Congressman Mark Walker is also a supporter of this type of legislation.
Given the fact that the GOP Congress achieved almost nothing during the last two years, and the democratic socialists are taking over the House next month, there is considerable pressure to get things done over the next four weeks. One of the matters being discussed is the prison reform package... Continue reading
