NC governor: Feds gave us 'unrealistic' bathroom law deadline [Prayers for NC, for America]
The Hill ^ | May 8, 2016 | By Rebecca Savransky

Posted on 05/08/2016 12:13:39 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) said the federal government gave the state an "unrealistic" deadline to respond to a letter informing him that the state's bathroom law violates the Civil Rights Act.

"They gave the ninth-largest state in the United States ... three working days to respond to a pretty complex letter and to a pretty big threat," McCrory said on "Fox News Sunday." "We don't think three working days is enough to respond to such a threat." McCrory said he asked for an extension on Friday.

The Justice Department sent a letter to the governor that says the law violates protections against workplace discrimination based on sex. It gave the governor until Monday to confirm "that the State will not comply with or implement HB2."

Many people in support of LGBT rights condemned the law in North Carolina, which requires transgender people to use public bathrooms corresponding to their biological sex.

McCrory said in an interview Sunday that the Justice Department agreed to give a one-week extension if the governor admits that the language in the bathroom law does discriminate.

"Well, I'm not going to publicly announce that something discriminates, which is agreeing with their letter, because we're really talking about a letter in which they're trying to define gender identity," he said.

Fight fire with fire, figure up how much the feds are giving you and withhold that amount in federal gasoline taxes back for the state.

Good point. USA Today had an article identifying 5 states Trump had to win. NC was one of them. I think the others identified were OH FL PA AZ.

Almost unbelievably arrogant strong-arm tactics by the US Government on this issue. A governor asks for a brief extension to fashion a response to a lawsuit threat and they try to condition consent to that request on an admission of liability. This must stop. They are wildly out of control.

This is the reason it is so important for ‘US’ to have an R Senate & House.

If ‘WE’ didn’t have the majority in both, the D pResident is liable to try and pass all kinds of stupid legislature.

Thank (I can’t say it) that we have McConnell & Ryan & Boehner before him to look out for ‘US’....

three working days to respond

What difference does it make?

Your response is going to be, "Nuts" - right?

I pray that is the answer. The federal tyrants are threatening to withhold billions of dollars in federal funding if NC doesn’t knuckle under to their unconstitutional demands. Praying they find a way to hold out for at least until after the coming landslide elections against the godless Marxists. Praying the Republican controlled House, Senate and Presidency will put an end to this crap!

The CRA came about when Martin Luther King forced the Democrats to stop being ‘moderate’ about race.

This will stop when We The People stop being ‘moderate’ and insist Republicans stop being ‘moderate’ and turn back the wrongs that have been done by federal government power and above all wasteful spending over the decades.

And that will inevitably take acts of civil disobedience by “We The People”.

I'm sure the all of the Federal Buildings renovated. Probably change the restroom bathrooms for everyone. I'm sure the family rooms are up to changes.

"Good point. USA Today had an article identifying 5 states Trump had to win. NC was one of them. I think the others identified were OH FL PA AZ."

PA was in there? PA correlates to a Trump landslide. PA goes red, we take IA, WI, MI, NH, CO, maybe NV and NM. Trump would get +/- 330, the biggest landslide since Reagan.

Saw Gov. McCrory on TV for the first time. He speaks the timeless truth and is openly defying the Feds. I was impressed.

Chris Wallace was an utter koolaid drinking JERK! Transjennies must be Wallace’s favorite people. Fortunately the Governor kept his cool. Wallace is as much an arrogant @zz as his unlamented late father, who must have cohabited with Mario Cuomo to produce this creep!

King Obama is in a mad rush to finish his "Fundamental Transformation" of America.

He has only 8½ months left to polish his homosexual/racist/muslim/socialist/anti-American legacy.

There is much to be done!

He has no time to waste coddling Bitter Clingers and other reactionary elements!

The state of North Carolina should implement a 50% income tax on federal employees, to replace any federal funds.

You are right on. Chris Wallace is a jerk. I am slowing weaning myself off of FOX and TV news in general. At one time I was a news hound. Couldn’t get enough of it. Now politicians make me sick and news makes me sick.

What these media wackos don’t realize is that their jihad against the Tar Heel State with all their righteous boycotts is producing a very family friendly state.

If the sickos decide that a public restroom is a good place to get beaten down by an enraged father, it becomes safer for all & the word gets around.

“NC is obviously going to fold. The federal govt will usurp all power from the states now, it’s just a matter of time.”

Benjamin Franklin said: “ We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

Right now NC is hanging alone. Where are the other states?

Idiot NC Governor needs to read The Constitution. Maybe he'll learn that the federal government is not the boss of the states, it's a creation of the states.

It has no business telling the states what it has to do.

The fact that it's become customary for the states to defer to the federal government doesn't mean it has to stay that way.

Somebody needs to step up to the plate and tell the federal government to go screw itself.

The most recent bathroom problem was started by a super liberal mayor of Charlotte, Jennifer Roberts, and her buddy who is a registered sex offender. She pushed the city council to pass an ordinance that allowed any man into a woman’s bathroom, shower or locker room as long as he said he ‘felt’ like a woman at the time. That opened the doors to any sex offender or randy guy with a camera.

The mayor was warned that the state legislature would overturn her ordinance. She went again anyway. Stupid woman. She has cost the city and the state millions.
