While Kentucky Lets a County Clerk Go to Jail, North Carolina Protects Religious Freedom

Many North Carolina civil magistrates refuse to participate in same sex “marriage,” but their religious freedom hasn’t been terminated. If you think the jailing of Kim Davis was unavoidable, unless she submitted to the Supreme Court as her Lord and Savior, here is evidence that you are wrong. YWFF 4 reports: “Dozens of N.C. magistrates refuse to perform gay marriages.” The number of North Carolina magistrates recusing themselves from performing civil marriages under a new law has more Read more […]

Because We Elect Cowards the Government Plunders at Will

None of us care what happens to our neighbors no matter how the government plunders them. Mark Horne recently wrote about the story of Lyndon McLellan and now the Daily Signal has reported on it: “The IRS Seized $107,000 From This North Carolina Man’s Bank Account. Now, He’s Fighting to Get It Back.” I honestly don’t care what the FBI and ATF agents call it to calm their debauched consciences. When they take part in actions like this they are nothing more than low-life thieves—armed Read more […]

NC Wants to Punish People for Talking about Food and Health

The North Carolina legislature is about to prohibit us common people from talking about food and health because only doctors can be trusted. You would think, with a presidential candidate using a non-FDA-approved diet, that this kind of thing would go away. Instead, I think we are about to see many attempts to suppress people from taking care of their own health under the color of that euphemism for tyranny—“public health.” Thomas Jefferson had it right: “Was the government to prescribe Read more […]

North Carolina Food Censorship Overturned

You are free to blog about your happiness with the paleo diet (or any other eating strategy), even in North Carolina. I never thought I would be blogging about the “paleo diet” on Political Outcast. But North Carolina anti-First-Amendment licensing laws have forced me to do so. [See also, “Is the Price of Butter Economic Bad News? No, but It Is Bad News for Michelle Obama.”] Thankfully, the Institute for Justice made the censors back down. Last week, the North Carolina Board Read more […]

Six Judges Resign When Ordered to Marry Same Sex Couples

Same sex marriage does not exist and people with integrity refuse to pretend that it does. According to the New American, six county magistrates have resigned their offices rather than submit to a court order to (pretend to) marry homosexual partners. As reported earlier The New American, on October 20 Swain County Magistrate Judge Gilbert Breedlove, in office for nearly 25 years, resigned his position following a federal court ruling that struck down North Carolina’s voter-passed constitutional Read more […]

Voter ID Laws Do Affect Minority Voting… By Increasing It

According to Judicial Watch, we now have evidence about voter turnout in response to laws requiring proof of identity in order to vote. Judicial Watch announced today that on June 18, 2014, it joined with the Allied Educational Foundation (AEF) and Christina Kelley Gallegos-Merrill in filing an amici curiae brief with the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina arguing that, contrary to dire predictions by the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ), minority voter turnout Read more […]

If Only The Robbers Had Used the Front Door, Then They Would Have Seen the Sign and Stopped

It could have been much worse. No employees were hospitalized. No customers were hurt. No shot was fired. Three gunman wearing hoodies robbed a restaurant. From ABC 11: Police are searching for three suspects involved in an armed robbery at Durham’s newly-opened barbecue restaurant, The Pit, at 321 W. Geer Street. Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on Read more […]

Watch The Corruption Flow: Obama Sends $70 Million-Plus To Allies In Chicago

Here is how the Chicago Tribune repeats White House PR about this bogus program to buy influence with Federal funds: Obama will officially announce the Chicago hub Tuesday at the White House. The initiative follows Obama’s new playbook for dealing with an oppositional Congress unlikely to enact any part of his economic vision. The announcement also delivers on the president’s pledge in his 2013 State of the Union address to set up three new manufacturing institutes from existing government Read more […]

To Join Protest Against Photo I.D. You Must Show Photo I.D.

This is the most fun news story I have seen since I read about how unions were hiring protestors to oppose minimum wage by paying them minimum wage! From the Daily Caller: North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws must present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh on Saturday. The central claim among the protesters is that the voter-ID laws disenfranchise certain segments of the voting population, particularly minority voters Read more […]

Colin Powell Has Gone Soft in the Head on Voter ID Laws

Colin Powell may be a General, but when it comes to politics and logic he has gone soft in the head. He sounds almost as foolish as Julian Bond who said that “North Carolina has become the new Mississippi” because it has passed voter ID laws. Every soldier in the military had to show identification to enlist to prove his or her age. And get this — they wear “dog tags” for identification throughout their time of service. Powell claims that voter ID laws punish voters: “I want to see Read more […]

North Carolina To Face Off Against Feds Over Strict Voter ID Laws

North Carolina is Republican controlled.  The GOP holds 33 of the 50 seats in the Senate and 77 of the 120 seats in the House.  Governor Pat McCrory and Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest are both Republicans.  And they are all prepared to defend their latest actions against all challenges. On Monday, Gov. McCrory signed a new voter law on how state residents can vote and the requirement that they display a photo ID when voting.  After signing the bill into law, McCrory released a statement saying: “Common Read more […]
