WHY GOVERNOR MCCRORY LOST THE ELECTION

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

 

THE DAILY SIGNAL

Standing Up to Political Bullying Is What Voters Want

After a month of counting absentee and provisional ballots, exploring voter fraud, and recounting 90,000+ ballots in one of the progressive strongholds of the state that were turned in at 11:30 p.m. on election night, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory conceded that he lost his re-election on Dec. 5.

McCrory lost his re-election by only 10,277 out of 4.7 million votes, or two-tenths of 1 percent. However, repeal of the H.B. 2 “bathroom bill” is not the lesson to be learned from the election.

The governor’s race in North Carolina had barely concluded before the Human Rights Campaign and other LGBT groups began taking credit for having unseated the one-term governor over his refusal to back down to their bullying.

The Human Rights Campaign engaged in an eight-month smear campaign against the state of North Carolina—with McCrory as the primary target—over the passage of North Carolina’s privacy law, which blocked a Charlotte city ordinance that would have allowed men into women’s bathrooms, showers, locker rooms, and other intimate facilities.

The Human Rights Campaign points to highly suspect internal polling as proof that this issue was his downfall, but the facts bear out a different conclusion. McCrory’s strong stance for privacy and safety and ensuring that local laws do not impose financial and legal liability on businesses actually helped him in his re-election bid, rather than hurting him.

PHOTOS – FUNDRAISER FOR LT. GOVERNOR DAN FOREST, NORTH CAROLINA

Friday, August 26th, 2016

 

A barbecue fundraiser for Lt. Governor Dan Forest of North Carolina, was held on August 24, 2016 at the lovely home of Betsy and Jim Duncan in Durham.  Lt. Governor Forest spoke of the tremendous accomplishments that have been made under the Pat McCrory administration.  
North Carolina’s unemployment rate decreased below the national average to 4.7 percent in July. Since Governor Pat McCrory entered office in 2013, the number of unemployed persons in North Carolina is 45 percent lower.   

Recently, Governor McCrory stated that “As home to one of the fastest growing economies in the country, North Carolina’s unemployment rate has now dropped below the national average and more than 300,000 new jobs have been added since 2013,” said Governor McCrory. “We have successfully modernized the tax code, fixed the broken unemployment insurance system and implemented an economic development strategy that has strengthened the economy and put more people back to work.”
 
The unemployment rate is now lower than it has been since May 2007 and the size of the labor force is 2.9 percent larger than in January 2013.

NORTH CAROLINA IS STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS

 FORBES

North Carolina Is Still Open For Business

by Patrick Gleason   April 27, 2016

Patrick Gleason is director of state affairs at Americans for Tax Reform and a senior fellow at the Beacon Center of Tennessee, a free market think tank based in Nashville. Follow Patrick on Twitter: @PatrickMGleason

North Carolina has been generating national headlines over passage of House Bill 2, the new state law blocking a local ordinance passed by Charlotte earlier this year that allows people to use public restrooms assigned to the gender with which they identify. Opponents have criticized the new state law as discriminatory, while proponents assert that it was necessary for public safety. A number of corporate leaders have spoken out against the law, and critics point to business community opposition to HB 2 as proof that the law will hurt the state economically.

Regardless of one’s opinion on HB 2, it cannot overshadow or remotely counteract what North Carolina has done legislatively over the last five years to become one of the most attractive places in the country to do business, invest, live, raise a family, and retire. Since Republicans took control of the state legislature for the first time in over a century in 2010, North Carolina legislators and Gov. Pat McCrory (R), who was elected in 2012, have enacted a collection of policy reforms that is more impressive from a free market and limited government standpoint than what any other state accomplished during that time, with the arguable exception of Wisconsin.

THE TRANSGENDER ISSUE

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

 

Why is the extreme discomfort and embarrassment that women and children would be exposed to not being discussed if transgenders would have free access to their ladies rooms and shower facilities?  Many people  express sympathy for transgenders, well, what about the women and children ?  I would think most women  would be extremely  apprehensive  showering with a man who had surgically mutilated his body so he could become a she !!!!     Thanks to Meg Gresham for sharing this article.     Nancy

There is a Cooper’s hawk living in a tree in my back yard near the Intracoastal Waterway in Wilmington, North Carolina. He is extremely aggressive when defending his territory. In fact, just a few months ago he was annoyed by the presence of some Blue Jays nesting in a tree within his territory. So he grabbed one by the wing, flew him down to the ground, pinned him on his back, and slowly ripped his heart out of his chest right in front of the other Blue Jays – all just to send a message to them. That Cooper’s hawk is aptly named. Tactically speaking, he reminds me a lot of the North Carolina Attorney General.

Roy Cooper’s job as AG is to serve and defend the people of North Carolina. But he has long since abdicated his professional responsibility in order to pursue a larger social vision. That vision is to take over the State of North Carolina and transform it into California – even if it means turning cities like Charlotte into San Francisco.

So it really is no surprise that that Roy Cooper has decided not to defend HB2, which seeks to protect women from having to share public and “public accommodation” (read: private business) restrooms with men posing as women. Cooper would never dream of opposing the ACLU lawyers bringing the lawsuit. That is because he shares their worldview as well as their vision for the Tar Heel state.
