CAROLINA RISING ALERT: NC Attorney General Roy Cooper

For Immediate Release

Carolina Rising Releases Statewide Robo-Call Alerting The Public 
About Roy Cooper’s Power Grab
Cooper Abuses Power to Keep Power, Punish Opponents
(Raleigh)  Carolina Rising is today calling hundreds of thousands of North Carolina voters informing them of Roy Cooper’s abuse of power by using an ongoing State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) investigation to smear political opponents.
“Roy Cooper is the most political Attorney General in modern North Carolina politics,” said Carolina Rising President Dallas Woodhouse. “He is now playing politics with our SBI, to  damage his political opponents and to hold on to political power after overseeing a lousy crime  lab that put hundreds of criminal cases at risk.   “Cooper may be an ambitious politician but overseeing an incompetent crime lab puts us all at risk, and manipulating our top police agency to play politics, is just wrong and the voters need to know about it. “
After the SBI crime lab scandal and the outrageous appointing of Roy Cooper’s lobbyist, a person with no law enforcement experience to head the SBI, the General Assembly is considering moving the SBI to the Department of Public Safety, a move considered for years by Republicans and Democrats. 
Cooper apparently released information about an investigation into a political donor who may have broken campaign finance laws.   Cooper’s staff seemed  leave the impression that some of Coopers political opponents may have done something wrong, although there is no apparent factual basis for that allegation and little likelihood under existing campaign finance law.
The Mission of Carolina Rising is to champion sound public policy that secures a rising and thriving North Carolina.
An innovative citizen engagement organization, Carolina Rising supports free market, education and government reform policies that will guarantee a better North Carolina for future generations. Organized as a 501 C-4, Carolina Rising seeks to aggressively promote sound public policies and individual freedoms and seeks to educate citizens by comparing & contrasting competing visions for the Tar Heel State.

Something to think about!

“Although Barack Obama and like-minded tyrants profess to be driven by humanitarian compassion for non-English speaking, impoverished illegal aliens, the truth is far more cynical, perhaps even criminal.

Indeed, the overwhelming support for amnesty among liberals is based on simple electoral math: Granting citizenship to tens of millions of illegals would unquestionably alter the political balance of power in a manner favorable to nanny-state socialists, at the expense of capitalist, free-market American citizens.

Amnesty would have the intended consequence of immediately transforming predominantly conservative and Republican “red states” into “blue state” bastions of socialism, and worse, where welfare, food stamps, entitlements, and one-party (Democratic) tyranny would prevail.”

#NCSEN: Harris campaign challenging narrative of Tillis inevitability

The Daily Haymaker, by Brant Clifton, February 24, 2014 

There’s been quite a bit of suspicion for some time that Charlotte pastor Mark Harris’ Senate campaign was merely a stalking horse to peel Tea Party votes away from  Greg Brannon.  Harris labels himself a conservative — like Thom Tillis does.  But he’s named former congressman, NCGOP chairman and Ripon Society fanboy Robin Hayes as his campaign chairman.  Hayes’ longtime political strategist, Tom Perdue, has also come aboard the Harris effort.

Observers have been quick to note how — in forums and other public events — Harris and his supporters are quick to criticize Tea party favorite Brannon, but are silent on Thom Tillis, the favorite of Establishment, left-of-center Republicans.  In some forums, Harris has spoken in defense of Tillis on toll roads and other aspects of the General Assembly’s agenda

But things appear to be changing on that front.  I’ve seen polling from pros — with campaigns and unaffiliated — suggesting that Harris appears to be getting a good chunk of votes in Tillis’ Charlotte-area home base.  Perdue, the Harris strategist, has upped the ante a little bit with some crowing to Roll Call, the DC-based “newspaper of Capitol Hill”:

#NCSEN: And NOW for THE REST of the story …

about Dr. Greg Brannon.....

The Daily Haymaker by Brant Clifton, February 24, 2014

Binky, The Shih-tzu, and the rest of their knucklehead mainstream media pals have been piling on Greg Brannon these past few days — amid giggling from Brannon’s political foes — since that finding from the jury in that civil case was announced.

Pete Kaliner, an Asheville talk radio host who used to do some serious reporting in Charlotte, decided to dig a little deeper into Brannon’s courtroom experience.  On Friday, Kaliner devoted an hour to Robert Rice, the CEO of the tech company at the center of the lawsuit in question. I encourage every one of you to listen to the full interview (about 40 minutes).   I did, and I learned a few things that I never would have known if I had relied on Binky and his friends:

Hampstead Democrat files for U.S. Senate, giving Hagan a primary

Port City Daily, February 24, 2014

The candidate field continues to expand as filing for the 2014 elections enters its final week.
New in the mix is Will Stewart, a Hampstead-based Democrat who filed Monday for U.S. Senate–meaning incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan, also a Democrat, will face a primary in May. Four Republicans had previously filed for that seat: Mark Harris of Charlotte, Heather Grant of Wilkesboro, Ted Alexander of Shelby, and Greg Brannon of Cary.

Obama’s proposed IRS rules to limit tax-exempt status concern liberals, too

Opposition grows from both sides

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan, February 24, 2014

The Obama administration’s proposed crackdown on tea party and other nonprofit groups that want to play a role in politics is quietly crumbling as opposition builds across the political spectrum to new IRS rules.

Almost all of the nearly 70,000 public comments submitted as of Monday night were vehemently opposed to the proposal, which would limit the ability of social welfare nonprofits — those organized under 501(c)(4) of the tax code — to even talk about candidates in the two months before an election.

Dick Cheney: Obama would rather spend money on food stamps than a strong military

Washington Examiner, BY  | FEBRUARY 25, 2014

Former Vice President Dick Cheney sharply criticized President Obama for reducing the size of the American military including plans to reduce the Army to the smallest force since before World War II.

Cheney pointed out that Obama's plans to cut the military were "over the top," citing "enormous long-term damage" to the military.

Cheney said Obama's decision was made for budget reasons, not any strategic goal.
"He would much rather spend the money on food stamps than he would a strong military or support for our troops," he said.

The ‘Before Obama’ and ‘After Obama’ history lesson for school children

Teaching your children well is your best defense against the anti-American Barack Hussein Obama

Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod, February 25, 2014

With Common Core spoon-feeding school children a steady school-day diet of anti-American propaganda, it’s prime time for parents to school their own children in the true chronicled History of the one nation the rest of the world still cherishes as the escape hatch to freedom and liberty.

Only yesterday, it was revealed that the Obama administration is planning on gutting the U.S. military to pre-World War II levels.

Parents should turn the tables by using this latest Obama move as the impetus to teach their children how America can legitimately claim guardian of world freedom status.
Make a homemade ledger marking it under just two simple categories: ‘Before Obama’ (BO) and ‘After Obama’ (AO).

America detractors repeat ad nauseum that America was late coming into World War II. While this is true, were it not for the Americans knowledge of the full horror of the evil of the Nazis may have been late in coming, too.

And you trust Obama why?

TPN—Judson Phillips

The Free Trade wing of the Republican Party is up in arms.  Conservatives are opposing the latest free trade agreement called the Trans Pacific Partnership.

TPN—Judson Phillips: The lying liar lies again

Is it any shock that the Obama Regime lies?  At this point, it would be a shock if they told the truth. 

The Obama Regime lied about something massive.  It is really hard to tell what is more shocking.  The fact that the Republicans trusted and believed the Regime or the Republicans are not screaming and raising holy hell about the fact the Regime lied to them.

What is this great lie that the Obama Regime suckered the GOP with and why aren't the Republicans screaming about it?


A Once Free Nation

February 25, 2014 by Bob Livingston
A once free nation’s descent into tyranny occurs one of two ways: either through sudden violent revolution or gradually over decades in fits and starts. America’s has occurred gradually.
Government conquers its citizens with gradualism because few understand it. Gradualism is imperceptible force.

America has evolved into a lawless state. There has been a breakdown of law and order, but only a few can see it. There are many layers of deception and those few who have become alerted see and understand at different levels.

The first trigger of alert is when a few people come to understand that government is organized crime and that government is in all-out war with its own citizens. The central purpose of Personal Liberty Digest™ is to raise the awareness of the people.

The U.S. Congress has, gradually, ceded its authority to the President and to the alphabet soup agencies of government that it created or allowed the President to create. Now the President rewrites laws on a whim, or chooses to not enforce them on a whim. This is the stuff of third-world banana republics. The imperial presidency feared by the Founding Fathers is in full operation. Yet the feckless Congress hardly whimpers about it and the people do little more than shrug their collective shoulders.

It’s Talk Show Radio the FCC is REALLY After

Don’t get too many shudders from the government monitors of the FCC arriving any time soon at the television newsrooms. They've been there for the last five years.

Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod, Friday, February 21, 2014 

Dress newsroom monitors of the Obama Regime’s FCC in jackboots and military caps when they come to invade because the “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs” (CINS) they proposed last May is truly all about image.

Why are they sending monitors into the newsrooms at this particular juncture of the Fundamental Transformation of America?

Because it shores up Obama’s Marxist fear factor.  We’ve got ObamaCare, ready to be propped up with pictures of dogs, cats and other pets in a $1 million advertising campaign aimed at the same young people, dubbed “knuckleheads” by Michelle Obama.  We’ve got ‘Braggadocio Barry’s increasingly loud boasts that he’s got a pen and a phone with which to circumvent Congress.

The Marxist march through all of America’s public institutions is now ready to place a jackbooted-presence down at your local radio and television station.
Here’s the hidden message: Run, hide, cower under the nearest desk, CINS is on the way.
When the KGB and the Stasi invaded the news rooms of Russia and Germany, they killed off any who showed resistance.  In their mad, unquenchable thirst for power the Obama Regime thinks its people are already dead.

Hamas-CAIR wants to remove Pledge of Allegiance, “Liberty and Justice for all”? Allahu akbar!

DC Clothesline, Pamela Geller, February 19, 2014

Slave to Islamic supremacist imperatives, Hamas-CAIR, is schooling us on what the Pledge of Allegiance means and why schoolchildren should not have to say it. They are telling us that it should not be “mandated” in America, when every aspect of daily human life is mandated under sharia. I am sure they would love to mandate the shahada.

Their allegiance is not with America. Their allegiance is to Islam.

Allah’s divine sovereignty is irreconcilable with popular sovereignty, which is the essence of democracy.” And finally, that “Islamic law, the Shari’a is therefore not a supplement to the “secular” legal code, it is the only such code and the only basis of obligation, because aMuslim’s only true allegiance is to Allah, and to Muhammad…” (more here)

WSJ to Kerry: Flat Earthers were the “consensus” position

Hot Air,  by  BY ED MORRISSEY, February 20, 2014

Last week, John Kerry burned 12 tons of carbon to travel to Indonesia and declare global warming as the biggest WMD of all. In what has become the general model of climate-change alarmism, he told his audience that Jakarta would soon be half-submerged thanks to the rising of the oceans that the election of his boss supposedly stopped. The Chicken Little spectacle was so embarrassing that Newt Gingrich suggested that Kerry should retire out of embarrassment, if not national security. “A delusional secretary of state,” Gingrich tweeted, “is dangerous to our safety.”

In the same speech, Kerry referred to climate skeptics as “Flat Earth Society” holdouts. That caught the attention of the Wall Street Journal and two fellows of the American Meteorological Society, Professors of Atmospheric Science Richard McNider and John Christy. Dr. Christy served at one time on the IPCC, the UN body that pushes anthropogenic climate change as the bogeyman of our time, and shared in its Nobel Prize along with Al Gore. Christy and McNider, however, teach a history lesson to Kerry before addressing his shrieking hysteria on global warming. It was the Flat Earthers who clung to “consensus,” and the skeptics who turned out to be right:

Popular Medicare Drug Plans Are under Assault

National Center for Policy Analysis, February 20, 2014

A new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposal would cause almost 14 million seniors to lose their Medicare Part D stand-alone plans, says Devon Herrick, a senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis.

The Medicare drug program has been popular, and the number of seniors without drug coverage has fallen 60 percent since the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) was passed in 2003. Seniors have a wide range of plans from which to choose, and drug spending has actually been much lower than projected. Costs per capita in 2013 were projected to be $3,047 but were actually only $1,846, a savings of 40 percent per enrollee.

Of the 39 million Americans enrolled in Medicare, 36 million of them have Medicare Part D drug plans.

Obamacare: The Terrifying Consequences To Healthcare

Joe for America, by Tom DeWeese, February 19, 2014

As the Obamacare debate rages, we hear much about insurance companies, costs and people’s ability to pay. We hear the policy defended as proponents tell us it will provide healthcare to those who never had it. Of course, these proponents never seem to explain how those who couldn't afford healthcare when it was a choice can now afford an even more expensive cost now that government mandates it.

However, these debates about the pros and cons of Obamacare basically focus on money. What about the real issue – healthcare? What will Obamacare do to our medical system? How will it affect the quality of our care? How will it affect doctor’s decisions as they attempt to take care of our health needs? And, ultimately, in a system controlled by government bureaucrats and government-written manuals – who will really be making the decisions that determine our quality of life? These are the real questions that need to be the center of the debate. And the answers are terrifying.


We’re Going Galt—Packing Up or Thinking Secession, Americans Have Had Enough

There is the growing sentiment toward secession

Canada Free Press, by Gretchen Olson, Thursday, February 20, 2014

Americans are fed up. They feel ignored by representatives more interested in corporate connections than the Constitution. They protest unelected agencies who spy on them and run their lives at home. They complain about the speaker of the house who refuses to follow the principals of his party.

They cry foul at a president using executive orders to force his agenda. They’re angry at lawmakers who aren’t listening even when they do answer their phones, and as taxpayers are overwhelmed with a bottomless pit of debt. Even state legislators and local officials are under fire for taking the bait from federal departments who now drive local school boards, electricity flow and personal healthcare.

Some just shrug their shoulders and say “What can you do?” A great many others, though, are engaging in the American tradition of migrating and removing themselves to areas of the country where they feel they have more control over their lives.


NAPOLITANO: Congress’ unconscionable silence at president’s power grabs--Obama becomes imperial president without Republican resistance

Washington Times, by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, February 19, 2014

The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing.

A glaring example of the impending triumph of a constitutional evil that could be stopped by folks who have been largely silent is the tyranny coming from the White House. The folks who can stop this and are doing nothing about it are our elected representatives in Congress.
The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It established the three branches of government, and it delegated “all legislative powers” to Congress.

American law rarely uses the word “all.” Yet the Framers chose that word precisely to confine the writing of law to Congress and to prevent a president from altering federal law by the selective manner of law enforcement and thereby effectively rewriting it.

The Framers sought to guard against the same evils by compelling the president to swear at the commencement of his terms in office that he will “faithfully” enforce the laws.


#NCSEN: Pro-amnesty, pro-gay marriage national group backs Tillis

The Daily Haymaker, by Brant Clifton, February 19, 2014 

Erick Erickson, over at RedState, has issued the clarion call:

Put the American Opportunity Alliance on your radar. Conservatives need to be wary and need to follow money from this group to Republican candidates.

A group of billionaires and multi-billionaires intent on pushing gay marriage and amnesty has started an effort to pump money into the Republican Party. The Politico report makes clear as well that these guys want to align Republican interests to Wall Street. As we see more and more every day, Wall Street’s interests are not the same as Main Street’s interests.

This group will push social liberalism within the GOP. They’ll start with gay marriage, but no doubt over time will transition to abortion rights. That’s the way these things typically happen. They’ll push amnesty too. And they’ll want to convince the GOP that what is good for Wall Street is good for America, which is less and less true these days. [...]

Politico has more on this group.  And LOOK at who has earned their blessing:

‘Wake Up, America!’: Beck Delivers One of the Most Passionate Rants of the Year

Glenn Beck said Wednesday that he doesn't care if just “four people” read the news stories — he wants his network TheBlaze to continue covering 15-year-old Justina Pelletier’s case until it is resolved.

“Find every reason to talk about it,” he said. “Turn over every stone. Show me everything that people can do and are doing … this is the most important story to me. Because you have a chance. You have the opportunity to save a woman’s life.”

A little more than one year ago, Justina’s parents lost custody of her after disagreeing with a Boston Children’s Hospital diagnosis that she has somatoform disorder, a psychiatric condition. They believe she has mitochondrial disease, a condition she had been receiving treatment for by doctors at Tufts Medical Center.

The Sneaky Tactic Some States Are Using Now That Parents Are Standing Up Against Common Core

As fed-up parents across the nation voice their staunch opposition to federal Common Core standards, several states are trying a new approach to appease them… by just changing the name in a “re-branding” effort.

In Iowa, Common Core is now referred to as “The Iowa Core” and as “Next Generation Sunshine State Standards” in Florida. Further, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed an executive order recently to scrub the “Common Core” name from their math and reading standards. Louisiana is also reportedly considering a name change.
