Yesterday was election day for the primary run-offs in North Carolina. Impressive results came in the 6th Congressional District race as Mark Walker beat Phil Berger, Jr. by about 20% of the vote. Roll Call has an article up on … Continue reading
Reverend Barber is officially the leader of the NC Democrat Party now. The NC Democrats made an official resolution to support Moral Monday rallies. I am sure the few remaining centrists within the NC Dem party are thrilled. The more irrelevant they become, the more irrelevant and extremist they make themselves. I’m reminded of a quote:
“If you think shrinking government and getting it less involved in your life is a hallmark of tyranny it is only because you are either grotesquely ignorant or because you subscribe to a statist ideology that believes the expansion of the state is the expansion of liberty.”
― Jonah Goldberg

This is a reposting of my DaTechGuy Article: Hagan Mother Of Three, Backed By Natl. Abortion Provider
By A.P. Dillon
Kay Hagan’s obsessive fear of the Koch’s and Democrat Dark Money isn’t her only slice of hypocrisy. As a mother of three, she’s now backed by Planned Parenthood — the national provider of abortions which received taxpayer funds. Planned Parenthood has launched a campaign tailored for her.
Planned Parenthood launches “Women are Watching” campaign for Kay Hagan. Shouldn’t that read “Women Allowed To Live Are Watching”? #ncsen

North Carolina Treasurer Janet Cowell has come under fire for the management of the NC Retirement benefits systems. The claim is that there is a $30 billion dollar secret fund that exists within it. Cowell has flatly denied this allegation. The man making that allegation is Edward Siedle. BizJournals explains:
State Treasurer Janet Cowell not only rejects claims that $30 billion in secret funds exist within the North Carolina Retirement System, but she and her office also question the legitimacy of the organization making the accusation.
Pension forensic investigator Edward Siedle has been vocal in his accusationsthat Cowell and her office cut secret Wall Street deals – a claim Cowell has denied. Via a 145-page report commissioned by the State Employees Association, Siedle and his firm, Benchmark Financial Services, accuse Cowell of flat out breaking the law.
Evil Wall Street 1% type argument being made here or something more locally political? Perhaps Siedle is a subscriber to the “99%” Occupy theme? Or perhaps this has more to do with keeping Cowell from possibly interrupting Attorney General Roy Cooper’s bid for Governor? SEANC used a similar move to discredit Richard Moore during his bid for Governor, why not go to the same well for water twice?

This is a reposting of my weekly DaTechGuy column: Far Left NC Dem Protests Return
By A.P. Dillon
When I began writing here at DaTechGuy, I opened with a series of articles that laid out the landscape of the Left in North Carolina called “A Primer on The Left In NC”. You can read parts two, three and four. One of the main characters in that series is Reverend William Barber of the NC NAACP. He began a series of protests called “Moral Monday”, which in 2013 led to nearly 900 arrests at the NC General Assembly.
The list of complaints by this ‘movement’ are what one might expect — demands for more big government, more spending, more Medicaid, opposing the very popular Voter ID law and a sustained assault on the Republican leadership in the state through a strategy calling for activists to “cripple, eviscerat, pressure and slam” them. Moral Monday desperately wants to emulate the protests in Wisconsin, but to date have yet to do much besides become the punchline to local jokes. Continue reading
