It’s been a sad session in Raleigh. Since Hussein carried North Carolina by 20,000 votes, the Democrats in the legislature are feeling pretty safe to pass a slew of legislature on behalf of the queer lobby, the tree huggers, and the NAACP caucus. The Senate has passed an anti bullying bill which states that homosexuality will be a protected status. Now I don’t know about you but I think we ought to be discouraging that lifestyle, not getting the government involved in protecting it. I urge you to call your state House members and state Senators and tell them to reject whatever compromise bill is negotiated as long as it protects perverse lifestyles such as sodomy.
Next we see that the Senate has passed the Racial Justice Act. This piece of legislation will allow convicted murderers to challenge their death penalty sentence on the basis that the judge and jury might be racist. As far as I am concerned any murderer, rapist, or child molester should be executed and it doesn’t matter what shade of skin they are. It is just another way for the NAACP and the Rev. Barbour crowd to try and end the death penalty for good in North Carolina. I have a suggestion on this act, don’t commit a capital crime and you won’t be executed. Once again I urge our members to contact their state House and Senate member and tell them you won’t the death penalty in place and unfettered by NAACP attempts to end the penalty.

If one excuse for reparations won’t do then make up another seems to be the motto of the NAACP. After Tony Rand, the leftist Democrats, and cowardly Republicans in the state legislature voted to apologize for slavery now the NAACP is demanding reparations based on events that didn’t even occur. As documented by NC League of the South Chairman Bernie Thuesermam and REAL historians, the 1898 incident was no race riot or violent coup. After a radical black nationalist newspaper editor defamed the honor of Southern womanhood in his pages the white citizens of Wilmington went to shut his newspaper down. They were fired upon and a minor firefight ensued and the newspaper’s headquarters was burnt down. THAT’S IT!!
There was no violent rampage of whites against blacks after the initial firefight except in the imaginations of the NAACP and convicted felon Thomas Wright, who authored the false report claiming a race riot. Seeing dollar signs the NAACP are now marching around the state in the leadup to their conference where “Reverend” Barber will demand we pony up, N&O “columnist” Barry Sanders will shout AMEN, and thethe gathering will close with a prayer to Lord and Savior Obama. This my friends is something that can’t and must not be ignored or scoffed at. History shows that they can succeed at this garbage. I urge everyone to call their state Represenatives and Senators and demand to know where they stand. If they are for even a penny going to this nonsense then we must oppose them with our voices and votes this November. Bev Perdue will also probably support this garbage of a cause so a vote for her is a vote for reparations. Let us keep the faith as we age this struggle that must be fought.

It is entirely fitting that Jesse Helms went home to his Maker on Independence Day. Few public servants have so dedicated themselves to the service of their country with the selfless dignity of Senator No. Our state has not had a servant like him before and will unlikely have such a man to represent us again. We are all the less for it.
It is hard to imagine that one soul from once small town Monroe could roil American politics like Jesse did. It becomes even more difficult to imagine that the world is vastly changed thanks to his actions. Had it not been for the efforts of Helms and the Congressional Club, Ronald Reagan would have been relegated to historical footnote. In 1976, then Governor Reagan had challenged Gerald Ford for the Republican presidential and had suffered 5 straight defeats in a row. On the ropes the Reagan campaign turned to Helms for a comeback miracle. On March 23, 1976 Helms delivered and allowed Reagan to go on to become president four years later. The Reagan Revolution that changed America and won the Cold War owed it all to the kid from Monroe.
While being involved in every aspect of American political life, the Senator and his staff always came through for North Carolina. While Jesse Helms was on Capitol Hill we saw very few military installations shuttered in this state. Textile, furniture, and other manufacturing workers didn’t have to worry about their senator voting for trade deals like NAFTA or CAFTA, unlike today. Perhaps most revealing of Helm’s dedication, no constituent concern was too big or small as many people who took time to write the Senator saw their letters personally answered, and not in a canned form letter. Despite being a leading crusader on so many issues Jesse Helms cared enough to take the time to answer the people, something not seen often enough today. It is a style that Senator’s Dole and Burr as well as Congressman McHenry would be well served to emulate.
It is hard for those outside North Carolina to understand how we could elect Jesse Helms and send him to Washington for 30 years. Given his strong Christian faith, his ability to tell it like it is, and his tenacity in the face of adversity, I believe Jesse Helms represented the best the Tarheel state had to offer. Whether you agreed or disagreed, everyone from Manteo to Murphy knew where Jesse Helms stood. We never had to look at past statements or stances to search for flip flops for political expediency. Helms was the same man in 2002 upon retirement as he was when he arrived on Capitol Hill in 1973. There is simply no better compliment for a public servant then that they have remained as true to oneself as Jesse Helms did. It is our greatest misfortune that we shall probably never see the like of Jesse Helms again on Capitol Hill to keep everyone straight, and never back down from what they know is right.
In 1826 on the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, former presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson passed away. The symbolism of these two political giants passing on that day was overwhelming for the Republic they helped give birth to. It was just as symbolic to see Jesse Helms’ 86 year journey that began in Monroe end on the birthday of the nation he loved so much. It can be said that North Carolina’s loss is Heaven’s gain as it now has the best legislator one could ask for.

Well it would seem that the NAACP is demanding it’s annual tribute of white liberals and politically correct Republicans to come and kowtow to their demands. Richard Moore, Beverly Perdue, and Dennis Nielson come as no surprise being that the leadership of the Democratic Party is so beholden to the black vote that of course they are going to ask how high whenever the NAACP says jump. Funny how Richard Moore can’t even devote 1 word on his campaign website to our Third World Invasion but finds plenty of space to address the issue of Darfur. Now folks maybe I might be lacking in compassion but I fail to see how an ethnic civil war 6,000 miles away surpasses illegal aliens coming into my state not even 5 miles away from my home. Hopefully the Republicans can wise up and address this oversight on Richard Moore’s part.
One Republican that won’t be addressing that is Bob Orr who was the only Republican candidate to show up to the NAACP forum. Shame on Mr. Orr who should have read their mission statement which reads like Karl Marx. Universal healthcare, ethnic solidarity with Latinos, poverty initiatives, and an elimination of the death penalty are but a few items on that list. Mr. Orr deserves neither respect nor votes for his politically correct pandering to this anti-white hate group. And while he didn’t show up at the forum neither does Bill Graham who supports affirmative action in determining admission into the University of North Carolina system. What has our state come to when all we have are candidates such as this?

Just when the stories about corrupt legislators in the General Assembly couldn’t have gotten better theres more. The NC Legislative Black Caucus has been dealing with questionable ethics for sometime. Coupled with the charges against Rep. Wright it only makes for more bad publicity for North Carolina’s black lawmakers. The most amusing/fishy part of this story is the fact that a fellow black Rep. , Alma Adams, was the one investigating the books of the Black Caucus and filing the report. She has at this time declined to release the audits from 2005 and 2006 which leaves many ethical questions unanswered and the credibility of the report open to question.

Wilmington, NC Representative Thomas Wright’s political future is hanging in an unpleasant balance as hearings are underway to push for his removal from the State House. Wright has been charged with 6 felony counts including taking over $350,000 from corporations and his campaign fund. Despite pressure from his Democratic superiors he refuses to resign. If the hearings proceed then his situation will be put to a full vote before the Assembly and a majority vote will mean he is expelled from the chamber. I just wonder how his ethnic cohorts will vote when that day comes.
