In a painful irony that is attracting national media attention, three attendees became victims of an armed robbery walking to their car after attending the fair.
This is the first election year in which the GRNC Political Victory Fund has made recommendations in sheriff races.
… VOTE CHARLIE BAXLEY FOR CUMBERLAND COUNTY SHERIFF.
… VOTE WES TRIPP FOR HALIFAX COUNTY SHERIFF.
… VOTE FOR RICK ERVIN FOR IREDELL COUNTY SHERIFF
… VOTE FOR IRWIN CARMICHAEL FOR MECKLENBURG COUNTY SHERIFF
Note that GRNC’s recommendations for Halifax and Iredell counties are for the Dhimmicrat candidates. That’s half of them, so much for the forthcoming accusations of partisan bias.
Firestone dismissed Weeks’ response to Bloomberg’s gun-grabbing efforts by asserting that “the former mayor is not trying to take away anyone’s legal handgun, and neither is any Democrat.” Never mind that Colorado Democrats, goaded by Bloomberg and lobbied by Vice President Joe Biden, were contemplating a radical ban on concealed carry on college campuses.
While Firestone pronounces Weeks’ ads as the “worst” example of the “use of fear,” abortion rights group NARAL is running election ads telling Colorado women that Republicans are going to take away all their condoms. Harry Reid’s super PAC is accusing North Carolina GOP Senate candidate Thom Tillis of causing “the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.” And the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has poured $2.5 million into scare-mongering ads in Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana and New Hampshire telling elderly voters that Republicans are going to strip them of their Social Security and Medicare.
… researchers at James Madison University say they have uncovered evidence that tens of thousands of non-citizens may have voted illegally in 2008, but that the actual number could be as high as 2.8 million.
… Obama won the state of North Carolina by just over 14,000 votes that year. … it’s entirely possible that illegal voters may have swung that state to Obama, since just 5 percent of that state’s non-citizens could have provided that margin of victory.
» Obama May Have Been Elected With Illegal Votes
Stop! English Lesson Time.
The words “may have been” are often used in place of the single word “was” when the speaker is less than bold about blurting out the obvious whole truth.
… according to an in-depth academic study that confirms Judicial Watch’s assessment that foreign nationals have helped Democrats steal elections.
Oops. I sit corrected. That was right dang blurty …
Non-citizens tend to favor Democrats and Obama won more than 80% of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 sample gathered by the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES), a large-scale academic survey project operated by teams of researchers from across the country. In fact, enough ineligible voters cast ballots in 2008 to conceivably account for Democratic victories in a few close elections
“This is why the Left does not want voter ID, loves same day registration, by mail voting, etc. and craves amnesty and open borders. It is not about the Hispanic vote – it is about the illegal alien vote (and the legal alien vote), it is about stealing elections. Makes all the talk about targeting, messaging, issues, candidates, and policy seem quaint.”
… because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years.
… It is a federal crime to cast votes if you are not legally eligible to vote … hundreds of non-citizens have been voting in Frederick County, Maryland. One in seven Maryland residents are non-U.S. citizens.
Also, here in North Carolina, let us not forget the leftist’s incredible powers of hypocrisy that enable them to do that which they protest against with straight faces – Via the inter-waybackmachine-net:
‘Can’t make this up’! NC NAACP tells voter ID protesters to bring photo ID to Moral March
That’s right, N.C. geniuses required photo ID of everyone participating in their protest against photo IDs because I’m a racist … and so are you.
Eric Holder is right for once. There really is a connection between requiring identification to vote and racism.
Nothing could be more racist that La Raza …
Voter fraud in this country is systematic and getting worse. Groups devoted to advancing the interests of nonwhites at the expense of the majority population are taking full advantage.
Look at it this way, this two kids are getting 10 less days of Progressive-Socialist-Islamic indoctrination.
… those seeking to exclude Maher should be brutally honest about what they are asking for. To the terminally silly, vapid slogans such as “Free Speech, Not Hate Speech” may sound cuddly and persuasive. To the less credulous among us, however, they are recognized for precisely what they are: an attempt to rationalize the brand of we-are-the-world dogmatism that is currently — shamefully — en vogue within the academy.
… Because Maher suggested that Muslims are intolerant and that they will shut down those who criticize their religion, Maher has criticized their religion and must be disinvited from speaking.
… Nobody is the slightest bit concerned about the possibility of Maher’s “ruining the graduation day” of Mormon, Southern, Christian, or pro-life students — and nor, I daresay, would this pushback have moved beyond idle grumbling if it were Republicans who were likely to be offended.
The assignment in question reportedly required 11th grade students to write a three-page essay about the “five pillars” of Islam, Mecca and Mohammed.
… “You can’t study God or Christianity in school. You’ve got atheist suing schools for saying ‘God’ in the pledge and not being able to say prayers before football games, but we can force-feed our kids Islam.”
… “I told her straight up, ‘you could take that Muslim-loving piece of paper and shove it up your white [expletive],’” Wood said. “If [students] can’t practice Christianity in school, they should not be allowed to practice Islam in school.”
From the comments:
I taught my kids about Islam at home. It didn’t require five pillars for them to learn the lesson – just two towers.
The Islamization of Jerusalem is an international cause. It does not just come out of Gaza City or even Ramallah. Nor Doha or Istanbul. The politicians and diplomats of every major country demand the Islamization of Jerusalem. When they talk about a Palestinian State with its capital in Jerusalem, what they are really demanding is the restoration of the Muslim ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem in 1948.
They are demanding it with words and boycotts. But the Muslim settlers, on whose behalf they cry for the Apartheidization of Jerusalem, are writing their own demands with the blood of little girls.
… Hillary Clinton spent 45 minutes shrieking at Netanyahu over the phone after a planning committee allowed new housing in Jerusalem to advance to the public comment stage, and told the media that the proposal that Jews live in a part of Jerusalem that she believes should belong to Muslims is “insulting” to the United States.
The latest firestorm exploded over seven Jewish families moving into homes that they had bought legally in an area from which Jews had been ethnically cleansed by racist Muslim violence in the twenties and thirties.
… when Chaya was murdered, the State Department urged “all sides to maintain calm and avoid escalating tensions in the wake of this incident.” It wasn’t as if anything important had happened. Just an Israeli-American baby murdered in pursuit of the same State Department goal of Islamizing Jerusalem.
Secretary of State John Kerry did not call President Abbas, the unelected president of the PLO’s Palestinian Authority, to berate him when one of his advisers called the murderer of that child a “heroic martyr”. Hillary Clinton did not come out of retirement to shriek at him over the phone when his party suggested that the killer would be receiving his 72 virgins in paradise.
Too many governments are still with those who wave the sword of Mohammed and cry death to the Jews. They encourage them, defend their agenda and issue weak rebukes when blood is spilled in the name of Islamization in Jerusalem, as it is in Kobani by ISIS and a thousand other places. Those who endorse the Islamization of Jerusalem cannot escape responsibilities for the crimes of the Islamizers.
To their point on hypocrisy, the three men were stopped by police and told that the KKK mask and biker helmet had to be removed but the niqab could be worn.
“One of the requirements of coming into Parliament House is that the motorcycle helmet is going to have to come off, your headdress is going to have to come off and your burqa … your identity will be checked,” the security guard said.
“Bit of a loophole, eh?”
When a distinct, growing, and unassimilable 7.5% of the population is committing 60% of the crime, society has a problem that sooner or later will get resolved violently. The best we can hope for is that this happens before the French become outnumbered in their own country.

… a training document given to middle-school teachers at Lincoln Public Schools stated, “Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” and suggests using classroom names such as “purple penguins” instead.
Do bothersome facts matter anymore?
Progressives believed that because traditional protocols, language and standards were usually created by stuffy old establishment types, the rules no longer necessarily should apply. Instead, particular narratives and euphemisms that promoted perceived social justice became truthful. Bothersome facts were discarded
So far, political myth making has become confined to popular culture and politics, and has not affected the ironclad facts and non-negotiable rules of jetliner maintenance, heart surgery or nuclear plant operation. Yet the Ebola scare has taught us that even the erroneous news releases and fluid policies of the CDC can be as likely based on politics as hard science.
If that is a vision of more relativist things to come, then we are doomed.
We’re not seeing “panic.” What we’re seeing is rage that the country is having a deadly disease foist on it for no good reason.
For individuals who in their service abroad exemplified Americans’ generosity of spirit, Hickox and Spencer have demonstrated a shocking lack of it since returning back home. Strictly monitored house quarantine — de facto house arrest — is undoubtedly an abrogation of civil liberties. But 21 days of it — lavishly state-funded — to be followed by perfect liberty assuming no problems, seems like a minimal sacrifice to ask of those who put themselves voluntarily in danger. When it comes to a disease that liquidates your internal organs and pushes blood out your eyeballs, “Better safe than sorry” would seem a dictum to which everyone could agree.
… U.S. government spends $22 billion a year to fight the global warming crisis (twice as much as it spends protecting our border).
To put that in perspective, that is $41,856 every minute going to global warming initiatives.
The two nice fellers outside the window, however … need to get a real job. Like each and every employee of ATF and IRS …
Meeting of Gullible Dumbasses Anon?
Naturally our rulers are not going to admit to banning sites they don’t like because they feel that their grip on power is threatened by the free exchange of ideas. Those who deviate from the party line will be denounced as “racists,” no matter how incongruously, so that the mob of hooting imbeciles who elect Democrats will feel themselves justified in crushing opposition, and politically correct sellout conservatives of the Sean Hannity/Rich Lowry stripe will shrink from defending them.
