North Carolina


Blain Dillard, the Carey, N.C., parent in the Wake County School District that we wrote about several weeks ago who is being sued by a Common Core math curriculum company for speaking out against the Mathematics Vision Project (MVP), is now countersuing: A Cary parent who is being sued for libel and slander for criticizing […]


According to a local report, the publisher of a controversial Common Core math curriculum used in the Wake County, N.C., public school district (WCPSS) is suing an individual parent for “libel and slander” as well as “tortuous interference” for vocally criticizing the district’s use of the curriculum he says has harmed the education of his […]


The LGBT movement has successfully used corporate America to bully states into repealing or blocking laws it doesn’t like. Now the pro-abortion movement is trying to use the same playbook to strong-arm the states into repealing pro-life laws. Recall 2016, when North Carolina considered a law establishing that people had no right to use public […]


Two swing state Democrat governors have chosen to stand for late-term abortion and infanticide in Easter week. If Republicans are smart, they will hammer them on it. First was North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat who was elected in 2016 by a fraction of a point in a race rife with allegations of voter […]


In the midst of the debate over legal rights for babies who survive abortion attempts, two states have stepped forward in an effort to secure rights for these children: Texas and North Carolina. In Texas, the State House of Representatives passed House Bill 16, which relates to the enforcement of rights for a “living unborn […]


It’s becoming a go-to strategy for the LGBT lobby: Step 1: Identify a candidate (likely a Republican) who stands “against LGBT people.” Step 2: Pour a ton of money into the race in favor of the LGBT-friendly (likely Democrat) candidate. Step 2a: Watch as the Republican Party establishment stays out of the election in order […]


Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) unveiled a $26 million plan for the 2018 elections. Their new offensive will almost double their current political staff and will focus on the key swing states of Arizona, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Nevada. HRC’s goal, according to The Washington Post, is to “[r]eplicate what happened in North […]


Following North Carolina’s decision last week to repeal HB2 — referred to in the media as the “bathroom bill” — through the passage of compromise legislation, the NCAA has announced that it will once again allow the state to host collegiate championship games. In a statement released yesterday, the NCAA explained its reasoning — and […]


This past Thursday, the North Carolina legislature came to the decision to repeal HB2, derisively referred to in the media as the ‘bathroom bill,’ after a year-long bullying campaign by the LGBT community. Despite finally getting what they wanted, liberals are still upset, calling the repeal “HB2.0” and “a repeal in name only.” During Friday’s […]


There has been ongoing controversy surrounding North Carolina’s HB2, often derisively referred to as the “Bathroom Bill,” since it was passed a year ago. After a long and aggressive bullying campaign by the LGBTQ lobby, the North Carolina legislature ultimately came to the decision this week to repeal the law. Democratic Governor Roy Cooper, who […]


Yesterday, liberals on Twitter — and dozens of journalists — rushed to retweet a story from the Associated Press claiming that the North Carolina so-called “bathroom bill” law, HB2, cost the Tarheel State an estimated $3.76 billion in economic impact over 12 years: Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled […]


Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the passage of North Carolina’s House Bill 2 — popularly labeled as the state’s “bathroom bill” — which was passed last spring to overturn a Charlotte city ordinance mandating public bathrooms, locker rooms, and other facilities be open to use by persons based on their “gender identity.” Though […]


The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) announced earlier this week they are launching a project to convince the NCAA to restrict sports championship events — such as March Madness tournament games — to liberal-leaning states. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Deformation (GLAAD), and Lambda Legal have all signed onto the […]


On Wednesday, the Departments of Education and Justice jointly issued a “Dear Colleague” letter, withdrawing Obama era guidelines dictating that U.S. schools allow transgender students access to facilities – such as bathrooms and locker rooms — matching the students’ “gender identity” rather than their biological sex. With the publishing of this letter, the question of […]


Frank argued quite persuasively last week that it wasn’t House Bill 2 itself that doomed North Carolina’s Gov. Pat McCrory in his reelection bid, but rather the overwhelming negative publicity dumped on the state by the left-leaning media and corporate-entertainment-sports complex. But while Democrats and their allies were busy outspending McCrory in the governor’s race […]


Today, North Carolina’s Republican Gov. Pat McCrory announced he would be conceding the state’s gubernatorial race to Democratic Gov.-elect Roy Cooper, bringing an end to several weeks of recounts and investigations into alleged cases of voter fraud. Despite his defeat, conservatives should applaud Gov. Pat McCrory for standing up for what is right. He refused […]


The spin has begun from the results of the North Carolina governor’s race. Even as the votes are still being counted, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is suggesting that Governor Pat McCrory’s tight re-election race should warn Georgia officials against pursuing religious-freedom legislation in the 2017 session. This conclusion, though entirely predictable coming from the AJC, isn’t […]


With just a few hours now separating us from the first election results, here are the five states I’m watching most closely tonight: 1.) North Carolina Obviously, North Carolina is a key swing state in the presidential race, which is likely to be very close, but I’m even more interested in the results of the […]


Apparently, if you’re from North Carolina and believe that there are only two genders — male and female, just to clarify — then you’re an “antiquated” bigot who is potentially costing your neighbors jobs and economic opportunity in the hundreds of millions of dollars. At least, that’s according to Forbes.com columnist Corinne Jurney. That’s right. […]


Last Friday, The Pulse 2016’s Frank Cannon and Jon Schweppe laid out the most likely path to 270 electoral votes for Donald Trump, arguing that if he were to win all the closest toss-up states at that time, he would need only one more state to go his way in order to overtake Hillary Clinton. […]
