Persons in these areas may want to vote prior to the arrival of the storm. Pay attention to the Natl Hurricane Center http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/ and your local Natl Weather Svc office.

    Link to video The President of the Charlotte, North Carolina NAACP, Corine Mack, made statements that should be music to Second Amendment supporters ears.  On CNN, she said that the mere fact that someone had a gun should not be enough to allow police to shoot someone.  From CNN: MACK: At the end of the day, you know, a video may show a different perspective depending on the angle. And so if we don't have many different angles, you may not get the full picture. I think the most important part is the contrast in him having a book...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – To much of the world, Charlotte is the Queen City — a gleaming downtown, state-of-the-art stadiums, sparkling new mass transit, the nation's banking capital. But a very different Charlotte came into the spotlight in the past few days. Move outside the city's core and there are neighborhoods like the one where a white police officer shot and killed a black man, Keith Scott, setting off violent protests. Places where residents tire of seeing police only when teams of officers sweep in to make arrests, and remember well other blacks killed by police officers who did not face...

    To get this out to you right away and because Concetta has been non-stop on the phone, she has asked me to send this email out to let everyone know about the decision to postpone the Convention until sometime in October, of course not to conflict with the Western Gala. The situation in Charlotte is very unfortunate, however not as bad as the media is portraying. Our hotel is not in Center City, it’s about 6 or more city blocks away from the location of the incidents last night. That being said, with the uncertainty of what might play out...

    RUSH: It's a sad observation, folks. I'm telling you, a sad, sad observation but it's an observation that I don't think I'm alone in making. It seems like rioting is almost expected now when there is a cop shooting. A cop shooting, period. Don't care about the details. It seems like it's now axiomatic that there's going to be rioting or massive public protests or threats of rioting or threats of unrest every time the cops have to draw their weapons. Now, stop and think about this. Where are we here? We're in the United States of America. We are...

    If there was a time Hillary needed to make a public appearance in the key battleground state of North Carolina to drum up voter support, it was today, if for no other reason than a just released Elon University poll finding Trump now has a modest 44% advantage among likely voters in the Tar Heel State, with 43% going to Clinton. According to the poll, most voters felt Trump would be better for rich people, white people and men, while most believe Clinton would be better for poor people, women and minorities. “This election is so tight right now, that...
