Wayne Allensworth, Chronicles: The world I knew then, and recall with such fondness, is irretrievably gone. My neighborhood and the surrounding areas were like a warm cocoon, a web of interlocking relationships, of cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors, all who shared their lives with an easy working class charm. I... Continue reading

I heard through the grapevine about the Tillis/Cunningham debate a couple of nights ago. I am told that Tillis came out in favor of a path to citizenship for illegals and copious deficit spending. But he could not bring himself to oppose face mask mandates when the question was posed.... Continue reading

Fred, even establishment figures on the left are making not-so-subtle calls for violent acts. If those on the right responds in kind, the media paints us as the bad guys. We live in interesting times.
Ha! After such a long, distinguished history of engaging in various types of voter fraud, the Dems still insist it doesn't exist-- except when the GOP does it. But the GOP can't even shine their shoes...
One of the methods that the corrupt media utilizes to inject bias into their coverage of the news is the failure to report certain stories. A great example is the recent Trump rally in Forsyth County. The president made it a point repeatedly to emphasize how important it was to... Continue reading

The long anticipated death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg-- ironically revealed like a Friday evening news dump-- set off a firestorm of political chatter over the last couple of days. The socialists are squealing loudly and contriving a sense of violation that Trump and the GOP Senate would attempt... Continue reading

Good point, Fred. They regard Reaganism as quaint history.
The hearts of our regional media were aflutter yesterday with the news that Thom Tillis and Richard Burr were sponsoring a measure to honor the late ex-Senator Kay Hagan. If passed, the measure would name the new air traffic control tower at Greensboro's airport after Ms. Hagan. She had helped... Continue reading

Pedro Gonzalez, Intellectual Takeout: Historically, ruling classes have endeavored to conserve the societies over which they preside. Our elites, on the other hand, thrive on the managed destruction and fleecing of traditional American society and institutions... To date, the ideological framework and power centers with which the elites justify their... Continue reading

I agree, Fred. Here is the rub. I think he has time to turn this around. But even if he did, and he were to prevail, I am not sure what we would be getting. Many regional conservatives have been convinced he would be great in the governor's office; and he certainly sounds some of the right notes. The risk, however, is that we might have another GOP establishment-ish disappointment. We can only presume the approach he takes to his campaign is also the approach he would bring to the governor's office. What did he do with his seat on the state Board of Education?
Richard Burr first ran for U.S. Senate during 2004. Around this time of year, he was trailing Erskine Bowles in the polls-- pretty badly. Things were looking pretty grim. Those of us who believed at that time that electing Republicans to the U.S. Senate was quite important were beginning to... Continue reading

Right. The image and the reality are two different things. And there is much more that can be said about the demographics of Ivy League activism.
It was fascinating to learn this week about the fact that Bobby Kennedy's son-- Robert Kennedy Jr.-- spoke at a huge demonstration in Germany in opposition to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions. It was reported that tens of thousands were present. Detractors were trying to label them in advance as Nazi's.... Continue reading

Great characterization, Fred. It faded a while ago.
