Past Musings from The Lady

To date, no media outlet has asked the pointed question and received an answer from Aim Higher NC on who their backers are. We do know that Organize2020, the NCAE member-led protest arm, says they are not involved. We also know that Rob Black of Red Wolf Communications is being called a ‘spokesperson’ for Aim Higher in the media. Black was a former communications directors for the Teamsters.
The only clue is the Aim Higher website. At the bottom, it says”Built by Powerthru Consulting”. A click on that text takes you to a PowerThru Consulting page although the address remains AimHigherNC.

We made it though this crazy week of pickets, marches and strikes. Speaking of pickets… This past Sunday I wrote about the upcoming ‘Picket Posh House GOP Fundraiser’ event set up and promoted by the NC AFL-CIO. The picketing went on this past Tuesday. No local media covered it. I even forgot about it until today. On Sunday, I speculated they might have protest fatigue — you know, all the Moral Monday-ing and all, and it looks like perhaps that speculation was right.
Poor sacks. Had to picket waaaaaaay down the entrance road and out on the opposite sidewalk to the Carolina Country Club. Continue reading
