LL188’s Top Ten Most View Articles 

10. Roy Cooper to 55% of NC Voters: You’re too stupid to use ID to vote

Roy Cooper - Veto Stamp AL1Apparently, Governor Cooper believes his citizenry are too dumb or feeble to obtain one of the multiple forms of ID considered acceptable in SB 824.
Over 55% of North Carolinian voters approved a state constitutional amendment requiring voter ID at the polls.
The legislature then passed a bill detailing a long list of acceptable ID’s. Like clockwork, Democratic Governor Roy Cooper vetoed the bill and his veto message was not only overly theatrical, but it also contained an insult to the intelligence of the voters in the state.

9. NC Democratic Party Spox Under Fire for Lews and Misogynistic Tweets

According to NC Insider October Newsletter “Old tweets posted by the N.C. Democratic Party’s lead spokesman have raised some concerns about his views toward women. Communications Director Robert Howard, who was hired by the NCDP in June 2017, said he sent the tweets when he was trying to be a comedian.”
There are more screenshots of Howard’s ‘comedian tweets’ in the article, which are not funny at all.

7. Liberal UNC Asheville Prof Busted for Stealing Political Signs

Amanda Wray Activist - UNC-A Sign StelaerDr. Amanda Wray 38-year-old UNC Asheville ‘women’s studies’ English professor was busted stealing political signs.

6. DNC Leaks: NYC Gay Power Couple Hosts Posh Fundraiser for NC’s Roy Cooper

While he was a candidate for NC Governor, Roy Cooper’s name was discovered in the Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails leaked by WikiLeaks. Several DNC officials, who also provide event coordination via various companies for Democrat events, helped facilitate a meeting for Cooper between Goldman Sachs employees and a top Obama Super PAC contributor. Roy Cooper’s name appeared a second time in the leaked DNC emails with regard to a pricey and posh fundraising event hosted by a gay power couple in New York City.

5. The School to Prison Pipeline and the Parkland Shooting

BROKEN SCHOOL DOOR - SCHOOL CRIME REPORTThe point of the now-famous Obama era “PROMISE Program” employed between the Broward Sheriff dept. and the school district was to lower suspension rates of minority students by seeking ‘alternative methods’ to dealing with violent or otherwise problem-related students. This program allowed Nikolas Cruz to go totally unchecked and he ended up murdering many of his classmates.  Versions of this program still exist in districts all across the country  – Including the 15th largest one in the country, Wake County Public Schools in North Carolina.

4. Cutting to the Chase: Just the Ford-Mitchell Transcript

Christine Blasey Ford - Brett KavanaughTo cut through the interruptions of the Democrats grandstanding in the questioning of Christine Ford, I compiled a running transcript of just the interactions between Ford and the former sex crimes prosecutor chosen for the hearing, Ms. Rachel Mitchell.

It’s a lot clearer reading this transcript that while something happened to Ford, she has no idea who, when, where or how it happened.

3. Greensboro Man Absolutely Nukes City Council Over The Second Amendment

1. S. Charlotte Middle School Sign: F*ck Kavanaugh (Updates)
