Very proud of newly- elected pro-life, fiscal conservative governer Pat McCrory, who was on Fox & Friends this morning. Despite only being in in office for six weeks, he is already pressuring the President and is coming under a strategic attack by local liberal groups. Can't tell you how good it is to be free from the pro-abortion, irresponsible spending reign of Gov. Bev Perdue. North & South Carolinians, listen to the response he received from Pres. Obama in reaction to efforts to cut our ridiculously rising gas prices.
I mean, Bev Perdue wasn't a stellar governor, but at least her transparent goal wasn't to line her own and her friends' pockets.

On Wednesday, January 9th, the NC General Assembly will convene its 2013 session. To coincide with legislators' return to Raleigh, Campaign for Liberty members and other conservative grassroots activists will gather at Halifax Mall to send a loud and clear message to our state leaders: HONOR YOUR OATHS, AND NULLIFY NOW. Last November, Bev Perdue accepted $73.5 million in federal bribe money to implement an ObamaCare Exchange in North Carolina. So far, Governor Pat McCrory and legislative leaders have ducked and weaved and refused to say whether they will return that money and refuse to cooperate with ObamaCare implementation. This Wednesday, we're going to Raleigh to tell them that anything less than full refusal to help Obama take over NC's healthcare system is unacceptable! Join us as we hear from speakers such as radio host Bill Lumaye, Founders' Truth creator Dr. Greg Brannon, NC State Rep. Larry Pittman, former NC State Rep. Glen Bradley, and Congressman Walter Jones. They will discuss the meaning .. ...
State employees on here, Pat McCrory begins working as our governor today. Whether you voted for him or not, let's all pray he helps the economy of NC (5th highest unemployment in the nation) and doesn't kick us, the state employees, to the curb as Bev Perdue did!

Not all that are convicted are guilty! "RALEIGH -- Gov. Bev Perdue issued pardons for the Wilmington 10, a group wrongly convicted in a Civil Rights-era case, Monday afternoon. Perdue issued a pardon of innocence Monday for the nine black men and one white woman sentenced to a combined almost 300 years in prison for the 1971 firebombing of a Wilmington grocery store. The bombing came after police shot a black teenager. Perdue's pardon means the state no longer thinks the Wilmington 10 committed the crime. The case's three key witnesses later recanted their testimonies. Amnesty International and other groups took up the issue, portraying the Wilmington 10 as political prisoners. "In evaluating these petitions for clemency, it is important to separate fact from rumor and innuendo," said Perdue in an afternoon release. "I have decided to grant these pardons because the more facts I have learned about the Wilmington Ten, the more appalled I have become about the manner in which their convictions were obtained ...

Gov. Bev Perdue today announced that Midway Aircraft Instrument Corporation, a company that performs maintenance and repairs on aircraft systems components, will locate a new facility in Union County. The company plans to create 36 jobs and invest $2.3 million over the next three years in Monroe. The project was made possible in part by a $12,500 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. “My first priority is creating jobs,” said Gov. Perdue. “North Carolina has a skilled, trained workforce and strong business climate that continues to attract the leading aerospace and aviation companies.” Midway Aircraft Instrument Corporation, headquartered in Little Ferry, New Jersey, overhauls, repairs and performs scheduled maintenance on a wide range of aircraft equipment. The company was incorporated in 1954 and bought by Dassault Procurement Services and Dassault Falcon Jet in 1988. The majority of Midway’s sales are on equipment installed on Dassault Falcon Jet models of business aircraft. Salaries will . ...

The money received must be returned to the federal government before North Carolina is able to take measures to nullify the affordable care act. 2- "Resolution Opposing the 2012 RNC Rules Changes" A resolution denouncing power-grab RNC rule changes made in Tampa, and stating that NC GOP Leadership will send a certified letter to NC's RNC representatives stating North Carolina's position of opposition.

My thoughts on Binders for Women Binders for Women Women what are you going to do in the 10th District? Are you going to defend yourself or will you let the men in positions make the decisions for you? It is a crying shame if we as women elect Romney as our leader when the man has already stated he will strike down the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act which states that women can receive equal pay for equal work. In January, 2009, Obama signed the bill into law. It was the first act he signed as president, and it fulfilled his campaign pledge to women. This law will in essence give women the right to pursue their compensation claims in the courts. Governor Romney has also stated he would defund Planned Parenthood. Romney has said time and again that he is a pro-life candidate and he will be a pro-life president. The actions he will take immediately are to remove funding for Planned Parenthood. It will not be part of his budget. Defunding Planned Parenthood caused women’s services to drop by 93 percent in a T ...

Clampitt, Queen are seeking state House seat By Quintin Ellison A former state senator and a retired professional firefighter with diametrically opposed philosophical views are vying for the N.C. House District 119 seat left vacant by Rep. Phil Haire’s decision not to run for re-election. Voters, in this race, will find clear distinctions between the two candidates. Democrat Joe Sam Queen, a three-term senator from Waynesville, and Republican Mike Clampitt, a Bryson City resident, differ on practically every issue possible, including education, voter ID and the environment. District 119 encompasses Jackson and Swain counties and part of Haywood. When it comes to education, Clampitt adheres to the Republican line that the GOP-led General Assembly has helped students and not hurt them. This is in contrast to Democrats, who say education cuts in state budgets the past two years have harmed public schools and resulted in significant teacher layoffs. “Sixty percent of the current budget is funding for scho ...

here's an excerpt from a HotAir.com story on the survey from SUNY on the female representation in a governor's administration. Perdue ranked 14%, Romney ranked 47% A look at nine governors in the Democratic Governors Association’s leadership ranks shows the average percentage of women in cabinet positions is 24 percent. If one takes the lowest number the Globe can produce for Romney—27.6 percent—even it outstrips the average of these governors. Despite eight years elapsing during which any number of women’s groups, governors, and binders could work together to improve representation, Gov. Bev Perdue of North Carolina’s cabinet sits at 9 percent representation. Perdue, also Vice Chair for the DGA, comes in lowest on the list, with a woman filling only one of 11 cabinet positions. Her Council of State Agencies includes several women, but Perdue’s office clarified they are not part of the cabinet.

Received a mailer from "Real Jobs NC" - a PAC - saying "Bev Perdue and her right-hand man Walter Dalton. Instead of cutting waste, they cut public education by 1.4 billion." A remarkable piece of disinformation. Fact is, the Republican controlled NC legislature over-rode the current Democratic Gov. Perdue's veto to reduce educational spending to historic lows, and cut taxes on wealthiest NC residents at the same time. And this is now blamed on Perdue and Dalton, who is currently running for governor? Wow. Thank you SCOTUS and Citizens' United.

Outgoing NC Governor Bev Perdue would have had a more productive term in office if only the Charlotte Panthers had awarded her with a football helmet.
North Carolina The Legislature did not set up a health care exchange before adjourning this year and Gov. Bev Perdue, a Democrat, is reviewing options, says Chris Mackey, Perdue's deputy communications director. The Republicans in the North Carolina have political blindness that reeks of being the most stupid people in North Carolina. In not setting up the insurance exchanges they are denying North Carolina of millions in federal funding to set up and run these exchanges and they are denying over 1.8 million people who do not have insurance of having a facility that will allow them to shop for the cheapest plan and get on board with having health insurance which makes it less expensive for the taxpayer to cover them at the emergency room. The Federal Government will take this task over and complete it for North Carolina and maybe the state if it proves it can operate it will have a post operative chance to take it back from the Federal Government. This is so short sighted because it is going to happen ...

Uck, uck, uck. way to go there , and thanks, from the oil industry and all Americans. ha ha /It could happen to anyone. It’s late and you’re stuck at work, exhausted. All you want to do is head home and kick back with a cold one, but instead, you accidentally vote to legalize fracking in North Carolina. Huh? Ok, maybe this scenario can’t happen to anyone—but it did to N.C. Democratic state Rep. Becky Carney. Carney attempted to vote Monday against a state Senate measure that would override Gov. Bev Perdue’s veto on a bill to make the natural gas extraction process legal in the state. But during the late-night vote, Carney accidentally pressed the wrong button to vote in favor of overriding the veto, making fraking legal in the state. Soon after she pressed the button, she said, “Oh my gosh. I pushed green.” “I feel rotten, and I feel tired,” Carney told local reporters after the vote. “And I feel that mistakes are made constantly when people are tired.”

Bev Perdue, Permanent Myrtle Beach resident? Something I am going to consider.and maybe a run for governor in SOUTH CAROLINA?!?
Many of my friends have posted very kind messages about the late Andy Griffith. I too, certainly appreciated the characters that he played on TV and on the radio. Those characters gave us warm feelings about America and the people in it. They taught good lessons. The tragedy, however, is that we fell victim to Holywood's illusion and fell in love with the character and then transfered those feelings to the actor. We forgot reality. Mr Griffin was a skilled actor. But in real life his phillosophy was nothing like the characters he played. Mr Griffith unfailingly supported the liberal politics of folks like Jim Black, Jim Hunt, Mike Easley and Bev Perdue. He used the good feelings we had about Andy Taylor to give credibility to political causes that were in direct opposition to the characters he played. Let's not forget our great state's motto "Esse Quam Videri." Let's seek to bring to life the character Andy Taylor represented and in doing so Let's put the liberal policies Andy Griffith suppor ...
I am so sad to say... I was proud that fracking was vetoed in NC by Bev Perdue until... one of the Democrats said they pushed the wrong button and so that one vote was the teetering point which DOES make fracking ok in NC - I guess that piece of horrible news hasn't yet reached the masses yet. I am SO disappointed. I guess the only thing we can do now is spread the word to everyone to not sell out to the industry... if no one allows fracking on their NC land then that could be how we have won. Come *** or high water, let's not sell out!
So this has to be the oddest dream I ever had. I was walking down Tate St. in Greensboro and tripped. I scraped up my arm pretty bad and was cursing, when Gov. Bev Perdue walked up to me and told me to watch my mouth. So I slapped her, and then she cloned herself into my church's Director of Youth Education. They chased me on foot across town and I hid in a broken down Monza, where they caught me. I got arrested and they sent me to San Quentin. There I took Continuing Education classes and set up a karaoke program. Discuss.

My gosh! I'm embarrassed for our state but happy our Governor is a Democrat; Bev Perdue somehow even faked-out her own Party members (see Becky Carney's comments on how she was supposed to vote on the Veto). It's painfully-obvious that our Governor can barely plan a dinner party, much less a strategy for legislative action. Everyone will be so amazed at the contrast when Pat McCrory gets in - I helped him rebuild his city with innovative community development programs like CWAC that made Charlotte the city it is today (& the Democrat mayor will take all the credit for). Pat's got what I call "downhome urbanity," - he's a happy warrior in addition to being a first class problem solver. It's gonna be a fun ride to November & he should win by double digits if we can keep the voter fraud in Orange & Durham to a manageable level. I'm saddened to find it out too, but our two counties top the list in NC every election. So, be very suspicious of so-called, "Get out the Vote" campaigns. Finally.Happy Birthday US ...
I feel sick. I’d bombarded Governor Bev Perdue with pleas to veto the NC fracking bill, which she finally did. But the legislature overrode her veto—by a single vote cast in error by a House member who pressed the wrong voting button and was not allowed to correct her vote. Sometimes life just seems to turn into a black comedy.
Rep. Susi Hamilton, D-New Hanover, signed a letter last week asking Gov. Bev Perdue to veto Senate Bill 820, the fracking bill. Tonight, she voted to override the very veto she asked for.
The North Carolina General Assembly voted yesterday to override Gov. Bev Perdue's veto of SB 416, a bill that essentially guts the Racial Justice Act (RJA), meaning the destructive bill will become law.
Sad to hear Andy Griffith. He was loved in NC until he decided to do ads for Bev perdue before the last election. I guess he just couldn't bear to see how badly she had ruined the state.
Raleigh, NC - The process of shale gas exploration, known as fracking, will be legal in North Carolina following the General Assembly's vote to override Governor Bev Perdue's veto of the bill, and it appears the deciding vote to override the veto was a mistake.
Businesses & customers can not be a hypocrite in North Carolina depending on vehicles and parking lots for their livelihoods concerning oil refineries. Say Yes Bev Perdue
Thank you Governor Bev Perdue for not allowing FRACKING in North Carolina. Reckless, short sighted Human Behavior needs to be avoided at all cost.
The North Carolina state Legislature voted in favor of overriding Gov. Bev Perdue's veto, making changes to the Racial Justice Act a law.
Hey u citizens here in n.c. pay attention and be glad gov perdue vetoed the plans for fracking to begin. Most people don't care OR just aren't listening. fracking destroys the land and makes the water UNDRINKABLE. ask anyone in west virginia. Bev perdue is done in office soon,, i think it was smart of here to veto this action. it is a beautiful state and people don't realize what we all have here. Imagine ur drinking water unfit to use. Ya all need to wake up, buy a paper go online ,, check into this and be smart.
Congratulations to Bev Perdue for vetoing the "fracking" bill! Fracking doesn't need to be done here as our natural gas deposits are too small to risk contamination of ground water, heavy equipment on our rural roads, etc.!
More good news - Gov. Bev Perdue has vetoed Senate Bill 416, the latest attempt by GOP leaders to repeal the state’s 2009 Racial Justice Act. "It is simply unacceptable for racial prejudice to play a role in the imposition of the death penalty in North Carolina,” said Perdue in emailed veto statement. The Racial Justice Act allows death row inmates to use statistics to try to convince a judge that racial bias played a role in their sentence. If the judge agrees, the condemned inmate’s sentence can be commuted to life without parole.
On Friday, our Governor (Democrat) Bev Perdue asked that all NC citizens raise their thermostat to 75 degrees due to our current heatwave.I then thought of all that our democrat Governor Bev Perdue has done for this state over the last four years then I stepped up to my thermostat and lowered it to 70.
Gov Bev Perdue finally makes a move I agree with.thx for vetoing the fracking bill in NC!
Dear Karen, There's finally some great news here in Raleigh — and I have you in part to thank. Last week, hundreds of you called and emailed Gov. Bev Perdue, urging her to veto Senate Bill 820, which clears the way for fracking near the Deep River, Jordan Lake and precious waters across the state. Today, the governor listened to you and vetoed this dangerous legislation, protecting our drinking water and priceles...
