    Leaked Emails Show DNC Pushed Narrative Against NC's Transgender Bathroom Law BY SAMUEL SMITH , CP REPORTER July 26, 2016|2:38 pm The Democratic National Committee helped push a national narrative opposing the contreversial North Carolina transgender bathroom law and officials seemingly celebrated the potential for economic struggles to hit the state following the law's passage earlier this year, emails leaked by WikiLeaks last weekend show. After North Carolina passed a law in March that allows places of public accommodation to enforce their own bathroom policies and requires people to use state-run bathrooms consistent with their biological sex, LGBT rights groups,...

    Rep. Robert Pittenger of North Carolina has written one of the best letters (below) I’ve ever seen come from the pen of an American politician. It was written to National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver and thus stands little chance of getting a response. Since the letter was so good and will probably get no reply, I thought I would offer the kind of rebuttal Commissioner Silver would offer if he really had personal integrity and a character for truth telling. He has neither. So here goes: Dear Mr. Silver:Last week, I met with constituents from China who outlined the...

When asked by Klein why they are supporting Trump instead of Hillary, who claims to be the candidate for women, they said, "We won't vote for a crook. We won't let a crook off the hook!" With their characteristically memorable style of commentary, the video stars also discussed Black Lives Matter, as well as their reasons for their wholehearted support of Donald Trump for President.

    The NCAA on Friday said cities looking to host future championship games must submit details by Aug. 12 about how they will protect participants from discrimination, a move that could hurt North Carolina's chances of landing future games. The announcement came one day after the NBA said it was moving the 2017 All-Star Weekend from Charlotte over a controversial North Carolina law known as House Bill 2. Cities that have already been awarded games will face a separate questionnaire deadline, which will be determined later, the NCAA said.

Andrew Cuomo banned non-essential government travel to the state. “Whereas the state of North Carolina has enacted legislation to bar transgender persons from using bathrooms...

Major League Baseball has built a field and a temporary stadium and put up lights for the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins, who play Sunday night in a military appreciation game that will be televised nationally on ESPN.

    If North Carolina was tired of all the controversy surrounding HB2 there’s no better way to move the conversation than by passing yet another bill which gets liberals up in arms. That seems to be what’s happening with the passage of HB100, an addition to the existing Protect North Carolina Workers Act. This legislation is aimed at weeding out illegal immigrants and ensuring that jobs go to citizens rather than paving the way further for law breakers, while putting penalties in place for any nascent “sanctuary cities” that don’t comply. An article by Tanvi Misra at Route Fifty exemplifies the...

    Charlotte Observer ^ | 6/30/16 | Paula Broadwell and Ryan Hoover
    The threat of gun violence in public spaces across our nation is disconcerting. Indeed, ideologically driven, lethal-shooter attacks represent a considerate threat to national security. Since 1970, more Americans have been killed on U.S. soil due to gun violence than all wars combined. A community need not overreact to security threats, but just hoping that Charlotte escapes gun violence is not a viable strategy. Consider this: While most banks, hospitals, and schools rehearse tornado and fire drills, few bankers, doctors, and students have died from tornadoes or fires in the past decade. Contrastingly, scant resources are devoted to preparing to...

The UNC Chapel Hill guide, published on Thursday, covers a wide range of menacing microaggressions — which are everyday words that radical leftists have decided to be angry or frustrated about.

To make matters worse, the permit policy is being used to target Christians specifically while others are being allowed to exercise their rights unfettered.

    Why does North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory hate American workers? McCrory’s GOP administration is a serial offender when it comes to using tax dollars to lure Indian offshore outsourcing firms to the U.S. Deon Roberts at the Charlotte Observer reported this weekend on the state’s subsidies for companies that use or specialize in H-1B visa workers. Roberts mentioned New Jersey-based Spectra Group, which received “a $2.9 million grant to create 250 jobs in Charlotte” and then applied for 10 H-1Bs, and top outsourcing firm HCL Technologies, which snagged $19 million in state grants in 2014 and then filed initial H-1B...

    When Charlotte veteran Allen Thornwell lowered his employer’s American flag to half-staff on Memorial Day, he says he did not think to ask permission or consider the possibility that he had done anything wrong. Instead, the 29-year-old former Marine, who served in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, says he was thinking about his country, the meaning of the holiday and his best friend, Geoff, another Marine who killed himself two years ago after returning stateside. On Tuesday, Thornwell was fired. A manager at the placement service that arranged the vet’s job at Time Warner Cable in Charlotte told him...

    A group of students at a western North Carolina high school built a wall made of boxes and blocked access to a common area, and their Latino classmates are upset. The students were allowed into McDowell High School, about 100 miles northwest of Charlotte, on Wednesday to perform a prank as a teacher supervised them. A photo of the wall with about 30 students standing in front of it was shared on Instagram and captioned, 'We built the wall first.'

    Donald Trump has inserted himself into one of the most contentious House primaries in the country this weekend, endorsing GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers in her member-versus-member race in North Carolina. Trump makes a personal appeal to voters to back Ellmers in a robocall released Saturday. She was "the first congresswoman to endorse me and she really was terrific and boy, is she a fighter," Trump says in the call. It is the first time this election that Trump has picked sides in a congressional race.

    OAKLAND, Calif. — Adam Silver has steadfastly refused to set any deadlines for when the NBA would decide on moving the 2017 All-Game in Charlotte if a hotly debated North Carolina law hasn't been changed. In a way, he did before Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, even as he said he's been pleased by the direction of the discussions. Silver said the NBA would need to see definitive progress toward changing the law by the end of summer to ensure that All-Star weekend remains in Charlotte. "I don't see how we would get past this summer...
  • S.C. Governor Nikki Haley Holds Nothing Back as She Compares Trump to Shooter Dylann Roof

    Nikki Haley‘s response to Dylann Roof shooting up a church in the state that she governs and killing nine people hasn’t always been perfect. In fact, it’s been cringeworthy at times, but she deserves credit from supporters for eventually removing the Confederate flag from state grounds and denouncing its use altogether. She has a history of coming around on issues and then really hitting them hard. For evidence of that, look no further than her fearless takedown of Donald Trump during her response to President Barack Obama‘s State of the Union address this year. Now, she is joining Hillary Clinton...
