North Carolina


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. […]


When poker players are drawing to a straight or a flush, they will often talk about having a certain number of “outs” — i.e. how many cards are left in the deck that can make their hand, allowing them to win the pot. Donald Trump doesn’t have a winning hand yet, but he has a […]


North Carolina offers a great glimpse into trends in the battleground states this election. A WRAL poll by SurveyUSA taken after the FBI scandal broke shows Donald Trump has suddenly jumped to a six-point lead. Almost a third of North Carolina voters chose “trustworthiness” as their most important quality in picking a president, and they […]


The new Elon University poll may have bad news for Hillary Clinton: With just a week to go, she and Donald Trump are in a virtual dead heat, 42 percent to 41 percent, with 9 percent of North Carolina voters still undecided. But when pressed, the undecideds favor Trump 27 percent to 18 percent. Meanwhile despite […]


Given the seemingly endless barrage of negative media coverage which has been aimed at North Carolina’s House Bill 2, including moves by corporations, sports entities, and celebrities to punish the state, it’s no surprise that the name “HB 2” has been tainted in the eyes of many voters. Just the latest evidence of this came […]


“It’s over. Trump can’t win.” That’s the narrative the Clinton campaign and the mainstream media have relentlessly promoted over the past several days. The problem with that narrative is that it is a bald-faced lie. This election is nowhere near over. Not even close! Let’s take a look at the electoral map. Remember, to become the […]
