Leaked memo outlines liberal attack
plan on McCrory, N.C. Republicans

Charlotte Observer (NC), by Jim Morrill

RALEIGH With Republican Gov. Pat McCrory and other conservatives controlling state government, what’s a North Carolina liberal to do? According to one group, they should: • “Crippl(e) their leaders (McCrory, Tillis, Berger etc.)” • “Eviscerate the leadership and weaken their ability to govern.” • “Pressure McCrory at every public event.”• “Slam him when he contradicts his promises.” Those were among the talking points and action steps in a memo from a group called Blueprint North Carolina, a partnership of advocacy and policy groups based in Raleigh. The memo was emailed to groups last week with a warning:

"Blueprint, funded in part by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization."

They are gunning for McCrory. The creepy video tactic is not a new move. Just look around at the next republican event you attend.

To whom is this news? Other than the GOP? The DNC does this to every republican everywhere.

This is a clear violation of their Tax Exempt Charter. Their Tax Exempt Status should be revoked.

We are at war. When are the Republicans going to realize it and start fighting like it´s a war?? This is not just a war of political parties...it is a war for the future of our country! It is the communists vs. freedom. Why aren´t we fighting back??

EVERY NC Republican official from county chairman to Governor needs to take this document and DEMAND that every NC Democrat (1) Disavow this type of tactics (2) Repudiate the actions of this group and (3) Promise no longer to work with any member or leader of this group.

Otherwise, obviously the NC Democrat party and its entire membership is unwilling and unable to act in a civil manner.

Civility is a two-way street. Maybe that needs to be the GOP mantra.

Cripple? Eviscerate? Slam? What violent language. I thought Democrats disapproved strongly of that. Not to speak of the fact that the word "cripple" is decidedly un-PC. The differently abled should protest.

There is a nationwide push by progressive miscreants, to disqualify any & all appealing GOP contenders... before they even get on the ballot. There are 3 I´ve heard of so far... by smearing & threatening them.

To progressives, the independent minded states need to be infiltrated & Californicated. They are on a 2 year mission to make their RINO´s the only GOP candidates in future elections.

ASHEVILLE- A 9-year-old boy is getting international attention from his battle with a Buncombe County school over his right to carry a “My Little Pony” lunch bag to class. Grayson Bruce, a student at Candler Elementary School, is now being home schooled because his mother, Noreen, said her son was bullied at school for carrying the lunch bag. She said school officials would not support her son. Noreen Bruce said she is scheduled to meet Thursday with Buncombe County Schools Superintendent Tony Baldwin to discuss the issue. In the meantime, Grayson and his lunch bag have become a sensation around




Gridlock continues as unspeakably horrible

The winter storm has mostly moved into the Carolinas, but metro Atlanta traffic remains gridlocked at 6 a.m. Wednesday as Tuesday’s afternoon rush hour from hell stretched into hour 18. Traffic is still bumper-to-bumper and barely moving on several Atlanta interstates, including on I-75 north of downtown, on I-20 west of downtown and on the top-end Perimeter. Students remain stranded at schools, as commuters lucky enough to make their way to makeshift shelters begin waking up in churches, fire houses and stores that remained open all night to provide a warm place to stay as temperatures plummeted into the teens.

Roman Tritz’s memories of the past six decades are blurred by age and delusion. But one thing he remembers clearly is the fight he put up the day the orderlies came for him. “They got the notion they were going to come to give me a lobotomy,” says Mr. Tritz, a World War II bomber pilot. “To hell with them.” The orderlies at the veterans hospital pinned Mr. Tritz to the floor, he recalls. He fought so hard that eventually they gave up. But the orderlies came for him again on Wednesday, July 1, 1953, a few weeks before his

Mecklenburg County commissioner Kim Ratliff apologized Tuesday night to the public and her colleagues for saying she preferred that the next county manager not be a white man. Ratliff, the board’s vice chair who is a Democrat and black, said in a brief statement at the board’s regular meeting that she regrets making the statement. “My comments were meant to encourage all candidates to apply for the position and not meant to exclude anyone,” she said. “I realize now my comments may not have been appropriate, and I regret making them.”

RALEIGH The Senate, after a long debate that invoked faith, constitutional rights and health statistics, approved a bill that would restrict abortions by stepping up requirements for clinics and doctors. The Senate passed the bill by a vote of 29-12 as opponents filled the gallery above and hundreds more waited outside. The bill now goes to the House. After the vote, people in the hall began chanting, “Shame, shame, shame.” A woman in the gallery who yelled “Shame on you” was arrested. Lt. Gov. Dan Forest ordered the gallery cleared moments before the Senate adjourned.

You don’t go to school to become a professional sports mascot. So there was no one around to teach Michael Zerrillo that every mascot has an expiration date. He figured that out on his own in the spring of 1995 when an accident on an air-pressure catapult tore his Achilles tendon and several ankle ligaments. If you lived in Charlotte in the ’90s, you undoubtedly saw Zerrillo perform without ever knowing his name or seeing his face. A former Arizona State gymnast, Zerrillo was the second Hugo, beloved mascot of the Charlotte Hornets.

Proposed menu includes steak biscuits, pizza bagels, pancake and sausage on stick. A plan to offer free breakfast to all Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students goes before the school board Tuesday, with the premise that students who eat breakfast are more successful and better behaved than those who skip it. The federal subsidy program for low-income students will cover the cost of biscuits, pancakes and other quick breakfast items for all, according to the presentation on the agenda. The goal is to eliminate the stigma of school breakfast

The pope and the devil:
Is Francis an exorcist?

VATICAN CITY Is Pope Francis an exorcist? The question has been swirling ever since Francis laid his hands Sunday on the head of a young man after celebrating Mass in St. Peter´s Square. The young man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, convulsed and shook, and then slumped in his wheelchair as Francis prayed over him. The television station of the Italian bishops´ conference said it had surveyed exorcists, who agreed that Francis either performed an exorcism or a prayer to free the man from the devil. The Vatican was more cautious Tuesday, saying Francis

The NC Toxic Free Kids Act (House Bill 848) was designed to ensure that children´s products are safe by asking manufacturers to disclose the presence of toxic chemicals and requiring that they phase out the use of three Priority Chemicals in children´s products. This bi-partisan bill was created by NC Reps Chuck McGrady (R-Henderson) and Pricey Harrison (D-Guilford) to address the fact that here is no comprehensive system in place to assure that highly hazardous chemicals are not being used in children’s products The chemicals targeted for phase-out under the bill are Bisphenol A (BPA)

Raleigh - Their friendship began in the Pentecostal church, teenage chums in a fading furniture town. They spent every day together in rural Lenoir, their lives revolving around youth group, prayer meetings and sleepovers. They passed afternoons at the local coffee and waffle shop, joking with a handful of church friends. They clicked. But it wasn’t always an obvious friendship. Nation Hahn had a zeal for liberal politics even as a teen, a rarity in the foothills of Caldwell County. He took Advanced Placement classes at Hibriten High. He graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill.

AUBURN, Ala. -- There was a funeral at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and College Street this weekend, and thousands of people traveled great distances to be here, determined to say a final goodbye to a pair of old friends. Many took pictures, hoping to freeze the moment in time, while others paused to say a few words before offering a final gesture of love. Few tears, however, were shed, despite the finality of the day, and the undercurrent of sadness touched all who attended.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
