    A Washington Free Beacon report has revealed the fact that North Carolina Democrat Senator Kay Hagan nominated a state court judge for a position on the federal bench as a quid pro quo for a favorable ruling for her husband. As a Democrat there was no need for Hagan to be cautious in the construction of her conspiracy with Superior Court Judge Calvin E. Murphy. The dirty deal was concocted in 2009 when Democrats had a corruption headlock on the Tar Heel State. Hagan’s husband Charles “Chip” Hagan was a managing member of a corporation called Hydrodyne Industries LLC (HI)...
  • North Carolina’s election law fundamentals: Why Tom Tillis may win after all

    Coach is Right ^ | 10/9/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    There is no doubt that Tom Tillis, Karl Rove’s candidate in the North Carolina Senate race next month, was forced on us and many Tar Heel State conservatives deeply resent both of them. This is not an argument in favor of Tillis election, but rather an examination of the political rules both Tillis and the incumbent Democrat have to operate under. A few cycles ago North Carolina became the last Southern state to flip to Republican control. The rampant corruption of the last Democrat governor and many of her cohorts in the State’s Legislature caused a blow back that brought...
  • Obama and the Art of the Artificial, Contrived and Transparent Crisis

    10/08/2013 4:06:33 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | October 8, 2013 | John Ransom
    I think that’s it’s safe to say that community organizing is a little bit easier than, say, being President of the United States. Or being a practicing attorney. Barack Obama has now found that out. To the sorrow of the rest of us. And here’s the essential problem with Barack Obama’s resume, as opposed to, say, Abraham Lincoln’s, who also was unprepared to become president of the United States, but made up for it with ability: Obama has spent his whole life being against stuff, protesting against powers higher than himself, blaming those in control. Lincoln on the other hand...

    *snip* "I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that," Perdue said. "You want people who don't worry about the next election." The comment -- which came during a discussion of the economy -- perked more than a few ears. It's unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious -- but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the...
  • North Carolina Legislature De-Funds Planned Parenthood

    The North Carolina state legislature has de-funded Planned Parenthood — with legislative leaders agreeing to a state budget that redirects $343,000 in family planning funding from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business, to county health departments. The budget was enacted at midnight last night after the legislature voted to override Governor Bev Perdue’s veto and it was the second time the legislature overrode a Perdue veto of a budget de-funding Planned Parenthood. Today, the Susan B. Anthony List, a national pro-life organization, praised Majority Leader Paul Stam, State Representatives Justin Burr, Marilyn Avila, Nelson Dollar, and the North Carolina...

    Perdue Team Headed To CourtSeveral aides may be called to testify about illegal contributions By Don Carrington Jun. 4th, 2012 RALEIGH — Even though Gov. Bev Perdue’s 2008 campaign for governor ended nearly four years ago, the upcoming trial of New Bern attorney Trawick “Buzzy” Stubbs should offer further insight into her campaign’s mysterious aircraft provider program. Wake County District Attorney Colon Willoughby maintains that the 10 flights Stubbs paid for, reported by Perdue’s campaign staff months after the election, amounted to illegal campaign donations. The trial, scheduled to begin June 11, also may provide insight into Perdue’s decision not...

    Numerous sources say Gov. Bev Perdue will not seek re-election in 2012. Perdue will turn 65 this month. Her likely opponent in the next campaign will be Pat McCrory, former Charlotte mayor and a Catawba College graduate. Sources at the Associated Press are working on a story at this time. The Raleigh News & Observer is reporting Perdue is expected to make an announcement this afternoon. The News & Observer is also reporting that Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton has about $600,000 in the bank, according to campaign finance reports. Others likely to make a run include current Charlotte Mayor Anthony...
  • N.C. Heart Attack Rates Down Since Passage of Smoke-Free Law

    RALEIGH – Emergency room visits by North Carolinians experiencing heart attacks have declined by 21 percent since the January 2010 start of the state’s Smoke-Free Restaurants and Bars Law. State Health Director Dr. Jeffrey Engel reported the results to the Justus-Warren Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Task Force this morning. “We pushed for passage of this law because we knew it would save lives,” said Governor Bev Perdue, who signed the law into effect. “Our goal was to protect workers and patrons from breathing secondhand smoke and we are seeing positive results.” The N.C. Division of Public Health report cites...

    For most of the Obama administration, we only had to worry about the economic destruction he was fomenting. Now the threats and actions are becoming physically violent. It’s getting scary out there. Forget about running guns to Mexican drug cartels via “Fast and Furious.” Most of the people killed with those guns were Mexican, and they were doing a lot of that even before the Obama administration got into the business of adding to their arsenals. But now we have Democrats, like North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue telling us that maybe we should forgo elections for a few years. Others,...
  • AP Investigation: Plant deal may enrich donors (Gov.Perdue)

    A state lawmaker and a group of Democratic political donors with ties to Gov. Beverly Perdue are poised to sell land at a handsome profit for a tire plant that's being lured with $100 million in state and local incentives, according to public records reviewed by The Associated Press. As North Carolina's chief executive, the governor is a key decision maker in large incentives deals involving state money. She also helps appoint the board members of a foundation that's been asked to provide part of the tire plant's package. Perdue's campaign has received more than $52,000 from five men with...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) on Wednesday warned President Obama to stop “poking our allies in the eye” with his comments on the European debt crisis. “Keep in mind this was a president who was supposed to make the rest of the world ‘like’ us again,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page. After about two weeks of social-media silence from the former Alaska governor, who has used Facebook and Twitter as her primary contact with the many fans she acquired during her unsuccessful bid for vice president, Palin returned with a Facebook note condemning President Obama for remarks he...

    If it was a joke, North Carolina Democratic Governor Bev Perdue needs to polish her delivery. Newly released audio contradicts the claims of Perdue’s press team that her call Tuesday for suspending Congressional election was a joke or hyperbole. In the recording, her tone is matter-of-fact and her comments are part of a serious speech.

    As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years. “I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.” Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members...

    Wake County Voters Arrested For Voting Twice In 2008Three Raleigh residents apparently thought casting one ballot in 2008 wasn't enough. Posted: 9:16 PM Aug 11, 2011 **SNIP** Authorities said Kierra Fontae Leache, Shelia Romona Hodges and Brandon Earl McLean each cast early ballots in the 2008 presidential election, then voted again on Election Day. They are charged with voter fraud and are free on $10,000 bond apiece. Wake County District Attorney Colon Willoughby said six more arrests are pending. Republicans leapt on news of the arrests Thursday to bolster support for a GOP-backed bill to require voters to show photo...
  • Perdue vetoes Voter ID

    Gov. Bev Perdue has vetoed a controversial proposal to require voters to show photo ID at the polls. Her statement: “The right to choose our leaders is among the most precious freedoms we have – both as Americans and North Carolinians. North Carolinians who are eligible to vote have a constitutionally guaranteed right to cast their ballots, and no one should put up obstacles to citizens exercising that right. “We must always be vigilant in protecting the integrity of our elections. But requiring every voter to present a government-issued photo ID is not the way to do it. This bill,...

    RALEIGH – I believe them. Why shouldn’t I? I believe Raleigh attorney John Wallace and other representatives of Beverly Perdue’s political team when they say there was no intent to mislead voters or evade state law by failing to report dozens of free flights Perdue took during her 2004 and 2008 campaigns. The Democratic majority on North Carolina’s state board of elections also believe Perdue’s political team, which is why the board chose to impose the maximum $30,000 fine for late campaign reporting and end its probe of the matter – rather than holding hearings, putting Perdue’s aides under oath,...

    The State Board of Elections has opened an investigation of Gov. Bev Perdue's campaign finances in response to complaints from the N.C. Republican Party. Last year, party Chairman Tom Fetzer filed complaints over undisclosed campaign flights. Perdue's campaign has since disclosed 31 flights and said the omissions were mistakes. Fetzer received a letter today from Kim Strach, a deputy director at the elections board who is responsible for investigations. In her letter, which Fetzer released to the news media Wednesday, Strach wrote that the board is investigating Perdue. "We have initiated an investigation into the allegations contained in your complaints...
