    There are 149,596 more Republicans and 95,524 fewer Democrats on the North Carolina voting rolls in 2020 when compared to 2016. But there is one other big change among registered voters: there are now 415,210 more who are unaffiliated. The North Carolina Republican Party credits the surge in their registered voters to registration events and outreach since 2017.

But Western Carolina University political science professor Christopher Cooper says the second largest block of North Carolina registered voters is unaffiliated. “From the...

    Rather than dumbing down the curriculum, advisers proposed that first and second graders study ancient China and Rome and learn the names of capitals. October 22, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) -- Earlier this week, Canadian media outlets broke what we are supposed to believe is a hugely upsetting story. Curriculum advisers handpicked by Alberta’s government, they reported, had made a series of unthinkable recommendations. Professors were called upon to condemn the proposals; commentators struggled to catch a breath; the New Democrats in opposition were frankly hornswoggled. The new recommendations, it turns out, include teaching seven- and eight-year-olds about ancient Rome, ancient China,...

    Imagine trying to get elected as a Democrat in a predominantly conservative town. That’s happening in Rogers County with those running for office hoping to turn their district purple... Young is running for State House District 23. She’s also the Democratic party chair in Rogers County, a group now working out of their new office in the heart of Main Street. "Rogers County was, the whole time I was growing up here for the last many years, it was Democratic and then it was slowly drifting towards being more Republican," Young said. Despite the Rogers County Democrats' push, Election Board...

    U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego, who has issued pro-Second Amendment rulings at least twice against California state statutes, was scheduled to hold an evidentiary hearing in another gun rights case Monday morning, and that is eliciting wails from gun prohibition groups. Anti-gun groups are already on the warpath against the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. For example, the Seattle-based Alliance for Gun Responsibility is campaigning to prevent confirmation, calling Judge Barrett “a Second Amendment extremist.” Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego appears to be the newest target of anti-gun...

    President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden clashed in their final debate Thursday in Nashville. The two men were supposed to meet three times, but the second event was canceled after the president tested positive for the coronavirus and refused to debate remotely. They also debated with a mute button, preventing one candidates from interrupting the other during the initial response to a question. But there were still lots of sharp jabs between the two. Trump went into the debate trailing Biden by 7.9 percentage points in the Real Clear Politics poling average. Who do you think won...

    At least 16 people were killed and 90 others wounded after a powerful explosion rocked outside a provincial police office in Firoz Koah, capital of Afghanistan's western Ghor province on Sunday, a local official confirmed.

  • Twitter Status Report: NY Post Still Locked Out. China’s Blue-Checked Propagandist Still Tweeting.

    Thank goodness our social-media superiors keep us safe from disinformation! The New York Post’s insistence on tweeting out their original reporting on Hunter Biden’s e-mails resulted in Twitter locking their account on October 14th, along with a number of other users. Supposedly this was imposed because the NYP and others were retweeting misinformation, trying to work around a block imposed on the story’s URL.A week later, the NY Post’s account is still locked — even though the Bidens have never directly disputed the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s e-mail. It’s still locked even though the Post now reports independent corroboration...

    New York City has been racing toward losing its position as the “safest big city in America” all year, but it’s got some competition coming into the home stretch. The City of Angels has been running up its own dismal record when it comes to violent crime. While still nowhere near Baltimore levels, Los Angeles has now racked up more killings than it did in all of 2019. And if a way isn’t found to turn things around, they are on pace to see more than 300 murders by the end of the year. It hasn’t been this bad...

    It’s more of a curiosity than a problem, but Lisa Murkowski apparently didn’t get moved off her position on confirmation despite meeting personally with Amy Coney Barrett. At the time that Donald Trump appointed her to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Murkowski threw the process in doubt by announcing her opposition to moving forward on the opening regardless of the nominee. Since then, Murkowski has been careful to parse her statements on Barrett’s specific confirmation.Until today … perhaps: The Alaska lawmaker, who met with the conservative nominee earlier this week, would join the likes of Senator Susan Collins...

    Following the end on the 18th of October of the 13-year United Nations’ embargo on Iran buying or selling weapons, the roll-out of the military component of the 25-year deal between China and Iran will begin in November, as exclusively revealed by Oil Price.com. After a series of meetings in China on the 9th and 10th of October between Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Zarif, and his China counterpart, Wang Yi, this military component may now also feature the deployment in Iran of North Korean weaponry and technology, in exchange for oil, according to sources very close to the Iranian government...

    Earlier this week the National Security Agency released a cybersecurity advisory which focused on attempts of Chinese state-backed hackers to gain access to intellectual property such as coronavirus research or advanced technologies, or political and military information. Tuesday's NSA advisory identified "vulnerabilities" in US systems that have been “recently leveraged, or scanned-for, by Chinese state-sponsored cyber actors” — for example bugs in software like Microsoft Windows or Citrix Systems. But now China’s Foreign Ministry has slammed the NSA report, calling out the spy agency's 'hypocrisy' and shining a light on vast US domestic surveillance exposed years ago by Edward...

    There will be no miracle on 34th Street this year. Santa Claus won't be visiting any Macy's stores in 2020, ending a 159-year holiday season tradition. The department store's tradition started in 1861, but Santa meet-and-greets won't be happening this year because of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, Macy's (M) is creating an interactive virtual experience. "To replicate the magical experience of visiting Macy's Santaland for children and their families, we will shift to a virtual engagement this year," Susan Tercero, Macy's vice president of Branded Entertainment, said in a press release.
