Policing one’s own party is a jagged double-edged sword as one conservative political consultant in Wake County is finding out. Continue reading
Well, local media is now on the Walk In Story. That’s good and bad.
Here’s the good:
Teachers taking this thing back are getting a forum with parents in their communities to discuss crucial points of interest that impacts them in their specific schools. Take Holly Ridge Elementary for example. They’ve put up their own independent site taking charge and setting the record straight. Holly Ridge apparently heard the criticisms from parents on the original messaging delivery is owning this their way. GOOD. BRAVO!
Here’s the bad:
Per normal, the local outlets are glossing over some of the details in an effort to be expedient. That’s a nice way of saying covering the rear ends of certain involved parties like the NCAE and their “member led” Organize 2020.
NCAE President Rodney Ellis spent his day in front of the media explaining a non-controversial walk-in on Monday… http://t.co/7LlZxneNdA

WRAL does a nice job of completely excluding that association in this report:
@wral Your Walk In video doesn’t mention clear NCAE Organize2020’s social media involvement. http://t.co/33DZXdbxjC pic.twitter.com/POpJLRpJz7 — LL1885 – A.P. Dillon (@LadyLiberty1885) November 2, 2013 Continue reading
Tonight on Twitter, the Wake County Dems showed their ass – pun intended.
Our Lt Gov has no business criticizing common core standards when his own kids are homeschooled and held to no standards. #ncpol #nced
— Wake County Dems (@wakedems) June 5, 2013
How do ya like that new tone! Why do Democrats hate homeschoolers? Oh wait, silly me they hate Dan Forest, who cares if some kids get in the way of a good old fashioned political attack.
Not to mention sheer ignorance on the requirements of and what it means to be homeschooled. Common Core is an utter train wreck; those defending it are practicing protectionism of various forms or willfully are remaining ignorant.
Here’s the video the Wake County Dems are all pushed out of shape about, via my post at Stop Common Core NC:

On March 26th, the Wake County GOP held its annual convention in the Kerr Scott building at the NC State Fairgrounds. Party business, internal elections and other matters were handled between various invited speakers. News of note was that Donna Williams was elected Wake GOP Chair. Watch Williams video pitch for GOP Chair:
Speakers at the convention included former school board superintendent, Tony Tata. Tata is now serving as DOT chief after being tapped on the shoulder by Governor Pat McCrory. Also speaking was Dr. Greg Brannon, the first official challenger to Kay Hagan for her Senate seat in 2014. Dr. Brannon, a Cary OB-GYN, is backed by various NC Tea Party groups. Given Dr. Brannon’s work with the grassroots group Founders’ Truth, paired with his limited government ideas, it is easy to see why he is attractive to the Tea Party.

Here is Dr. Brannon’s speech to the Wake GOP:[youtube=http://youtu.be/GgctOsADRo4]
“We understand what the problem is. The problem is, that people are telling us, that the collective is superior to the individual. We know our Founders fought and died for individuals over the collective.”
You can learn more about Dr. Brannon at GregBrannon.com, on Facebook, YouTube or connect with him on Twitter.
