The News and Observer has been creating candidate interview videos.
Here’s Kim Hanchette’s.
Mirroring their article on Hanchette, News and Observer asks no questions asked about her Moral Monday participation, Equality NC affiliation or her arrest at Moral Monday in 2013.
These are background pieces of this candidate the public deserves to know. News and Observer has not done their job — which is to tell the whole story, sans the ‘good lighting’. Continue reading
Yesterday I received word of Republican candidate signs for the Wake County Commissioners race being swiped.
Today, I was sent a note from NC16, where Molotov Mitchel is taking on Senator Josh Stein. A banner of Mitchell’s was allegedly stolen off a fence somewhere in District 16. See the email snippet at the bottom of the article.
Frankly, in NC 16 there should be no contest here.
Senator Stein has made his support of the deeply flawed and experimental Common Core crystal clear over the last year. He ignored the testimony of over 40 parents and educators and instead, ran with the prepared talking points from the Chamber of Commerce.
Parents should know I’ve witnessed first hand that Stein no interest in your children or high standards, he’s more concerned with smooth talking points — oh, and implying you’re a racist if you don’t support Common Core. Flashback to May, 2014:

Progress NC’s education front group, Aim Higher, is sending out emails telling you what specific candidates ‘value’ public education.
Aim Higher fails to mention that Adcock is a SAS employee who supports Common Core, Turner’s site is virtually devoid of where he stands on the issues, much less any detail beyond the Blueprint NC style attack on education. Turner is very friendly with far Left Moral Monday candidates.
Also left out was that Hanchette was arrested at Moral Monday and is involved with one of Blueprint NC’s partners, Equality NC.
That’s not valuing education, that’s valuing the take-over of education by un-elected outside trade groups and corporations.

The News and Observer has an article up entitled, Pendleton, Hanchette seek Wake seat.
The N&O does a brief write-up on both candidates but leaves out some critical information, like Hanchette’s Moral Monday arrest on June 10, 2013.
Also, at the June 10th arrest, Hanchette tied herself to Equality NC by listing them as her interest group affiliation. Equality NC has endorsed Hanchette as well.
Remember, Equality NC is also a Blueprint NC member; “Cripple, eviscerate, pressure and slam”.

Andre Peek wants to talk to experts on Common Core English Language Art.
Will the Governor’s pick start out this ballgame by at least hitting a line drive towards learning the facts? Let’s see — Via News and Observer, emphasis added:
Andre Peek, co-chairman of the new Academic Standards Review Commission, said the body wants to first make sure that it’s familiar with the current Common Core standards before recommending changes to the State Board of Education. He said the commission will review English language arts on Monday and math in November.
Peek said Robin McCoy, director of K-12 curriculum and instruction at the state Department of Public Instruction, will explain the language arts standards to the commission. He said they wanted to hear from people like McCoy who are experts in the subject matter. Continue reading
