North Carolina has become ground zero for liberal causes and outrages such as Medicaid/welfare expansion, anti-voter ID requirements and the latest absurdity: transgender bathrooms. The Old North State isn’t unique in this regard. There are plenty of other states that have passed similar laws. But what really irks progressives is this state was controlled by democrats for over a100 years until 2010. Since then, the national spotlight has shined on North Carolina for any harebrained scheme libtards can dream up.
Governor Pat McCrory can attest to feigned outrages and manufactured crises posed by liberals. His administration has been under attack by every Observer rag that infests this state. People who make a living agitating for “free stuff” have camped out near the Governor’s mansion under the specious banner of “Moral” Mondays. Now he’s getting nasty grams from morons like Governor Cuomo of New York and teat squawkers such as PayPal.
Hey, Governor Cuomo! Do us a favor and stay the hell out of North Carolina. God knows we have enough of your economic refugees down here. We can only hope and pray they have learned their lesson from living in a blue state hellhole and won’t revert to voting for scumbag politicians like you.
But what is really interesting is companies like PayPal have their hands out for taxpayer subsidies and at the same time demand we conform to their warped sense of morality while doing business with countries that kill homosexuals. That takes a lot of nerve. As far as I’m concerned, good riddance. We don’t need that kind of stupidity contaminating our state. Thank god, North Carolina has politicians who won’t stand for this kind of bullying.
"If our action in keeping men out of women's bathrooms and showers protected the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it,” said Lt. Governor Dan Forest. “North Carolina will never put a price tag on the value of our children. They are precious and priceless.”
Amen to that brother.
A robber had his “safe space” violated by a white privileged boy who micro aggressed with an assault gun causing this societal victim to cry for his mommy.
Chris Gaither, 11, heard a noise and grabbed a nine-millimeter hand gun.
“When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” Gaither said.
The boy started firing at the suspect, who made it out the front door with a hamper in his hand.
“I shot through the hamper he was carrying,” Gaither said. “It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby.”
Are there no safe spaces for robbers? Can no one steal without being micro aggressed?
I remember when Fox News first came on my radar. It was like stumbling upon an oasis in a desert filled with stinking, liberal trash. Conservatives yearned for a media outlet that didn’t insult their intelligence or lecture them on the finer points of a socialist utopian society. Many of us shunned the networks and its New York-beltway clique.
I don’t know what’s happened over at Fox, but lately, it’s getting to the point where I don’t watch the prime time slots anymore, simply because they have turned into the Trump Channel with its constant, never ending coverage. I’m sick of it! Apparently, I’m not alone.
CNN ranked #1 in cable news in prime time in April. CNN beat Fox News for the fifth time in the last eight months in M-Su prime time (four of the past eight in M-F prime) among adults 25-54. The last time CNN had this many prime time wins in an eight-month period versus Fox News was over 14 years ago (Nov. 2001). CNN also handily topped MSNBC this month in all dayparts, with CNN besting MSNBC for the 22nd straight month in Total Day (among both total viewers and among adults 25-54) and in prime time (among 25-54). In total viewers, CNN has now beaten MSNBC for the fifth straight month (or seven out of eight months) in prime time. CNN continued to top MSNBC by wide margins during the day (9am-4pm) – posting a +36% advantage in total viewers (630k vs. MSNBC’s 464k) and +58% more among adults 25-54 (161k vs. 102k)
I don’t know if I can make the transition to the Clinton News Network. Maybe they’ve changed their ways over the years. Something tells me they haven’t.
Americans have lost confidence in the federal government. People are wakening up to the fact that Washington D.C. is the source of all of our problems. That’s not just me venting. That’s what former Senator Tom Coburn stated before a Senate committee on Homeland Security.
“I would just tell you a little of my background this last year in 2015 I spent my time in 21 different states,” Coburn told the committee. “And America doesn’t trust you anymore. That’s the truth. Because they don’t see the actions coming out of Congress that should be coming out.”
“And that doesn’t mean that they’re right all the time, but you’ve lost their confidence,” he said. “And that’s not one party, that’s both. And so when you have hundreds of billions of dollars that could be saved and aren’t, and they know it. You know, they actually read your reports. People online, and then they use social media, pass it around.”
“The important thing is to restore the confidence in the country what you’re doing, and why you’re doing it and how you’re doing it,” Coburn said.
“The unfunded liabilities of this country, with its debt, is $142 trillion,” he said. “That’s $1 million per family, or that’s $1 million per taxpayer. Nobody knows what a trillion is but when you’re telling a young family with small kids, ‘Oh, by the way, here’s the debt burden that’s coming to you over the next 25 years, you better be prepared for it.’
Dr. Coburn is leading an effort to convene an Article V convention of states that would amend the constitution. Because we all know Washington D.C. is incapable of reforming itself.
The world has turned upside down. Donald Trump was forced to jump a fence because illegal aliens waving Mexican flags barricaded the main entrance to a republican convention in Burlingame, California. Some of these protesters believe the Golden State is still part of Mexico.
Give these illegals another decade and they will turn that beautiful state into a third-world hellhole just like the one from which they escaped.
Man, progressives are intolerant. These people will do anything to disrupt an event if it involves an opinion or a person they disagree with. How many times have we seen a Trump rally disrupted by a bunch of thumb suckers? Attendees have been harassed, punched and kicked simply because they wanted to hear what he had to say.
Has anyone seen conservatives act like this? I’m not aware of tea partiers disrupting a Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton event. Maybe it’s because we work for a living.
What is so hypocritical about progressives is they whine about perceived micro aggressions and the need for “safe spaces” while being macro aggressive and in your face. What’s laughable is when they’re amazed when someone has had enough of their crap and fights back.
I guess the best way to deal with these babies is to ridicule them. Steven Crowder did a good job of it in this video.

Here is a reason to vote for Donald Trump.
What will be the end result of President Barack Obama’s legacy? If people were honest, they would admit his administration’s policies were doomed from the very beginning. Why is that? It is very simple, his policies are un-American.
That’s right, I said it!
Barack Obama is an un-American president and we are suffering for it. Nay! The whole world is suffering because the American people were blinded by political correctness and had to vote this buffoon into office, not just once, but twice!
Why are Obama’s policies un-American? I’ll tell you. He and his ilk believe in a top-down, centralized government. To them, Washington D.C. is Main Street. They believe the federal government is the country. That authoritarian mindset is contrary to our Constitution and the principles for which we are founded. One only has to look to Obamacare to witness the abject failure of a progressive fairytale turned into a Grimm horror story. Here is an excerpt from Marc Theissan’s op-ed summarizing this nightmare:
The law was passed over the objections of a majority of Americans, it is still opposed by a majority of Americans — and their opposition has been vindicated. Last week, UnitedHealth Group announced that, after estimated losses of more than $1 billion for 2015 and 2016 under Obamacare, the company was pulling out of most of its ill-fated exchanges.
In fact, commercial insurers across the country are hemorrhaging money on Obamacare at alarming rates. Health Care Service Corp. (which owns Blue Cross and Blue Shield affiliates in Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas) has lost “well north of $2 billion” in its first two years — twice as much as UnitedHealth. Highmark, the nation’s fourth-largest Blue Cross plan,lost nearly $600 million in 2015. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina has projected it will lose more than $400 million in the first two years, and the company has said it may leave the exchanges entirely next year.
The president promised these insurers taxpayer bailouts if they lost money, but Congress in its wisdom passed legislation barring the use of taxpayer dollars to prop up the insurers. Without the bailouts, commercial insurers are being forced to eat their losses — while more than half of the Obamacare nonprofit insurance cooperatives created under the law failed.
Obamacare is just one of many failures, but it’s a catastrophic failure equaled only to his Mid-East policies which unleashed an Islamic terror that has the potential to fell Western Civilization. But you can damn well bet academia and the media will spin this man’s presidency into a godsend just like they did with Woodrow Wilson and FDR; two presidents who had as much contempt for the U.S. Constitution as the Anointed One.

Americans have read or experienced a myriad of healthcare horror stories since the implementation of Obamacare. It is obvious that there is a correlation between higher cost and government mandates and regulations. This is basic economics. Common sense should dictate when a customer/patient takes an active role in the cost/benefit analysis when conferring with his doctor, health care cost are reduced. This shouldn't be a surprise.
The Boston Globe published an article detailing one woman’s frustration that led to an epiphany. Here is an excerpt:
When Americans rely on a third party — private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid — to pay most of their medical bills, they forfeit their power as consumers. Our ill-conceived system of subsidized health plans provided by employers and taxpayer-funded “free” treatment through the government ends up stripping patients of their economic clout. Doctors and hospitals have little incentive to compete by lowering prices, because patients rarely bother to ask about prices. By and large, health care providers in the United States do most of their negotiating with insurers or the government. After all, they’re the ones paying the piper.
It’s only when medical services reimbursed by a third party — think of Lasik eye surgery or veterinary care or the growing number of direct-pay “concierge” practices that don’t accept health insurance — that the consumer is king. When providers are paid directly by customers, transactions are transparent, prices fall, choices proliferate, and consumer convenience becomes a priority. Bills reflect actual prices, not inscrutable codes and deductibles and “adjustments” negotiated way over patients’ heads.
Is it possible that liberals are waking up to this fraud? They should. We’ve only being carping about this for years.
How many times have North Carolinians been told that we are a bunch of heartless S.O.Bs for not expanding welfare benefits? Just open up your local Observer rag and you’ll be bombarded with liberal propaganda extolling the virtues of government dependency.
The Cato Institute published a report ranking the biggest welfare states in the Union. North Carolina came in #27 with pre-tax annual income equivalent to $25,700 and an hourly wage equivalent to $12.38. Mind you, North Carolina is the highest among all southern states. Keep that in mind when confronted by a transplanted teat squawking libtard.

Every year, newspapers and trade publications report on state to state migratory trends and every year blue states are the big losers. If given a chance to escape a progressive utopia, many can’t pack their bags fast enough. The obvious reasons are lack of economic opportunities, high taxation, oppressive regulations and a hostile political environment.
Liberals try to explain away this exodus by dismissing the South’s success on the advent of air conditioning and massive infrastructure projects. Common sense would dictate these projects are needed to accommodate all the damn Yankees that have moved here and air conditioning has been ubiquitous since the 1950’s. If today’s migratory trends were this strong in the mid 20th century, only teat squawkers and crickets would be chirping in Yankeeland.
The United States has probably witnessed only one other contemporary migratory pattern like this and it was during the time period between 1910 and the 1960’s. This mass exodus of blacks, and poor whites, to northern industrial cities was called the “Great Migration.” The reasons for this exodus are the same ones I gave in the first paragraph. Here is an excerpt from A History of African Americans in North Carolina that should make politicians and open border advocates hair stand on end:
With the outbreak of war, foreign immigration to the United States dwindled from 1,218,000 in 1914 to only 110,618 in 1918, creating a severe labor shortage. Wages in northern industries were appreciably higher. The average daily wage for a black farm laborer in the South was $1.00. Wages in the North averaged $2.00 to $4.00 per day. In New Bern, for example, a black laborer in a sawmill or cotton oil mill earned $1.50 and $1.90 per day. In contrast, a black North Carolinian employed in a Pennsylvania steel plant received 30 cents per hour and could work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. His income over a two-week period totaled $48.00 to $54.00.
People don’t leave their family and friends because of air conditioning and roads. They move because they are in desperate need of opportunities and want to improve their lives. Period.
I know I blogged about this a couple of weeks ago, but this just sickens me to no end. The United States Senate conducted a hearing that exposed the IRS’s callous disregard about identity theft by illegal aliens.
This hearing also exposed Congresses impotence in doing anything about it. We have a rogue administration that has nothing but contempt for the rule of law and quite frankly the citizens of this country. We are on the road to becoming a banana republic. Here is what the Center for Immigration Studies concluded:
1. The IRS encourages and facilitates the commission of job-related felonies, including Social Security fraud, forgery, perjury, and identity theft as long as these crimes are committed by illegal aliens and their employers.
2. The IRS places the interests of illegal aliens ahead of those of American citizens by forbidding its employees from notifying American citizens, including millions of American children, that their Social Security numbers are being fraudulently used by illegal aliens in spite of the fact that these Americans suffer serious harm.
3. Congress is complicit since it has long been aware of the problem but has done nothing to protect American citizens from illegal alien, job-related felonies. I wrote about this in 2009 in a CISBackgrounder: Illegal, but not Undocumented: Identity Theft, Document Fraud, and Illegal Employment", and yet like Captain Renault in the film classic, "Casablanca", every time this comes up our elected officials all repeat in unison "I'm shocked, shocked to find that illegal alien driven identity theft is going on in here!"
And when the IRS finds out about these felonies, you would think these public servants would notify the victims that their identities have been stolen. Wrong! Here is how IRS Commissioner Koskinen justified this outrage:
- It's in everyone's interest to have illegal aliens use the identifying information of Americans in order to be able to file their taxes (since they cannot legally obtain Social Security number).
- If the Social Security number being used has been borrowed, that's not the normal identity theft situation (although it is still forgery, Social Security fraud, and perjury on an I-9 form — all felonies).
- When the numbers are stolen and not borrowed, that is more problematic and the IRS is trying to find a way to protect American citizens without preventing illegal aliens from filing their taxes (even if this means allowing illegal aliens to freely use Americans' Social Security numbers).
- The IRS is "very sensitive to protecting taxpayer information on both sides" (i.e. protect the information of the identity thieves and in no case turn them over to law enforcement).
- A bill titled the "Social Security Identity Defense Act" that requires the IRS to inform American citizens that their Social Security numbers have been fraudulently used has been pending with the Senate Finance Committee since May 13, 2015, but no one on the committee was aware of it. (In addition, Sen. Orrin Hatch, Committee Chairman, introduced a bill in 2011 to protect the victims of illegal alien job-related identity theft, but once he was re-elected he dropped it, so it appears that he has no desire to protect his constituents from this crime.)
- The IRS does, however, advise taxpayers when there has been any kind of access to one of its online applications that their Social Security number is in the hands of criminals. (Illegal aliens using fraudulently obtained Social Security numbers are committing multiple felonies — forgery, Social Security fraud, identity theft, and perjury on I-9 forms, but the IRS Commissioner does not view them as criminals.)
- The IRS does not notify taxpayers in the "very limited case where people file with an ITIN, but it is very clear that a Social Security number was used to get job" (75 percent of illegal aliens use a fraudulently obtained Social Security number in order to get jobs, so this "very limited" number is actually in the millions).
If you don’t believe this federal government has turned on the American people, you’d better think again.

Time to stop shopping at Target.
Hillary Clinton published a book in 1996 entitled, “It Takes a Village.” Indeed, it takes a village to destroy a country and you don’t have to look any further than Washington D.C. That wasn’t her premise, but I’ll sure as hell make it.
When Congress established Washington D.C. as the permanent seat of the federal government by passing the Residence Act in 1790, it was mandated that this village would not exceed 10 miles square. Today, that hellhole town has spread its tentacles throughout Virginia and Maryland. Those two states have been corrupted by federal bureaucrats, lobbyists, politicians, criminals and legions of teat squawkers who have settled there and are subjecting citizens to a host of absurdities that only Democrats could conjure.
Case in point is Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton toady. That man wouldn’t have been elected governor hadn’t it been for the D.C. suburbs. And he rules like an arrogant insider. McAuliffe decided to be a mini-Obama by invoking an executive order that would restore voting rights to 206,000 ex-felons without the consent of Virginia’s General Assembly. And why should he? He has a pen and a phone. This whole representative republic thing is for suckers and Christians, not for enlightened progressives.
As a matter of fact, the more power Washington D.C. confers upon itself, the more endangered our republic and liberties become. That village has become antagonistic towards American citizens, the rule of law, our sovereignty and the Constitution of the United States. This threat doesn’t just come from the president, Congress and government bureaucrats, but from the federal judiciary itself. This branch of government was considered the most dangerous of all by the Anti-Federalist. Here is what the pseudonymous writer Brutus prophetically wrote:
The judicial power will operate to effect, in the most certain, but yet silent and imperceptible manner, what is evidently the tendency of the constitution: — I mean, an entire subversion of the legislative, executive and judicial powers of the individual states. Every adjudication of the supreme court, on any question that may arise upon the nature and extent of the general government, will affect the limits of the state jurisdiction. In proportion as the former enlarge the exercise of their powers, will that of the latter be restricted.
That the judicial power of the United States, will lean strongly in favour of the general government, and will give such an explanation to the constitution, as will favour an extension of its jurisdiction, is very evident from a variety of considerations.
That the judicial power of the United States, will lean strongly in favour of the general government, and will give such an explanation to the constitution, as will favour an extension of its jurisdiction, is very evident from a variety of considerations.
We are truly going the way of the Roman Empire. Don’t believe me? Watch the video below and compare.
Step on up and witness the latest freak show courtesy of your local Democratic Party. Your little girls experience in a public bathroom will be filled with stupefying horror as she squirms her way through a maze of human abasement and depravity that would repulse any God fearing man.
Come on in and see the bearded lady with a suspect bulge in her panties preen before a mirror. And if you’re able to take your eyes off of her prodigious Adam’s apple, make your way to stall number one and witness the wonders of a sword swallower with assless pants and his flaming phallus. Your little girl will look on in amazement as this degenerate performs unnatural acts. What’s that dangling from his buttocks? Oh, that’s just a pull string attached to his pet gerbil. Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!
That’s not all for this dark carnival. Step into stall number two and watch a he/she contemplate, “To sit, or to stand? That is the question.”
And let’s not forget the morbidly obese fat man sitting in the corner. Nothing says freak like Michael Moore. This degenerate will applaud anything that repulses the sensibilities of any upstanding citizen.
You ask, what is the price of admission for this bastardization of morality, humanity and common sense? Why it’s free! Free! Free! As is everything with democrats, except of course, if you’re a straight Christian male, then you’ll have to go to jail because you’re nothing more than a pervert. What’s that? They don’t care if you’re concerned for your daughter’s safety.
This is the Age of Obama. If you’re not a member of a protected class, there are no concerns for you and your family! Welcome to the Democratic Party’s Dark Carnival!
Liberal ideology versus thousands of years of grounded reality.

It’s that time of year when American workers bend over and grab their ankles so the federal molesters can rape their wallets. Say goodbye to the meager savings that you scrimped throughout the year because the D.C. wastrels can’t spend money fast enough on graft and greed. It’s also that time of year when Americans discover the nefarious activities of federally sanctioned predators that have stolen the identities of their fellow citizens and taxpayer largess. Rest assured, no invasion will go punished.
What Americans are finding out is the federal government has more regard for illegal aliens than conservatives. The oprichnikis at the IRS have no problems harassing and intimidating Tea Party activists, but when it comes to a protected class of invaders, this agency will go out of its way to accommodate the Golden Horde even if it means aiding and abetting fraudulent behavior. Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind) extracted the following confession from IRS Commissioner Koskinen.
"What we learned is that ... the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that's not really our job," Coats said. "We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid."
Asked to explain those practices, Koskinen replied, "What happens in these situations is someone is using a Social Security number to get a job, but they're filing their tax return with their [taxpayer identification number]." What that means, he said, is that "they are undocumented aliens … . They're paying taxes. It's in everybody's interest to have them pay the taxes they owe."
Are you F***ing kidding me?! How can anyone doubt this federal government has turned on the American people?

Once again, citizenship in the United States is under assault by the federal government. We have a president who has flooded this country with illegal aliens; congressmen who cater to and depend upon these same illegal aliens for their seats in Washington D.C. and a federal judiciary who pisses on the very notion of citizenship by bastardizing the 14th Amendment.
The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that illegal aliens can be counted in the U.S. Census and therefore can influence apportionment of congressional seats, henceforth diminishing representation in states that have more American citizens than illegal aliens. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the following:
“As the Framers of the Constitution and the Fourteenth Amendment comprehended, representatives serve all residents, not just those eligible or registered to vote,” she wrote. “Nonvoters have an important stake in many policy debates — children, their parents, even their grandparents, for example, have a stake in a strong public-education system — and in receiving constituent services, such as help navigating public-benefits bureaucracies.”
Did the framers of the U.S. Constitution and the Radical Republicans who authored the 14th Amendment mean to legitimize a third-world invasion?
Justice Ginsburg spilled the beans when she wrote that illegal aliens have as much right to taxpayer largess as an American citizen. She also played her hand in promoting the federal bureaucratic leviathan over our federalist system.
The enemy of our republic has proclaimed itself. There is only one remedy for this kind of treason. It is time to invoke Article V of the U.S. Constitution and call for a convention of the states.
