    You Can Be a Certified Duke Marxist. Think about that.No, this is not The Onion, a joke, nor a smear.James Buchanan “Buck” Duke was an industrialist icon; a man who made a fortune in tobacco and textiles. He was a true capitalist that feared God, inspired faith, and was a titan of industry. He funded several of America’s great educational institutions and was a philanthropist beyond measure, but his endowment is now responsible for a program that will certify the next generation of Marxists.- Let that sink in.According to a recent Duke Chronicle article, “Duke has long been known internationally...

    It was hook, line and sinker — literally — for a man who went out fishing over Thanksgiving. Equipped with only a small rod, Wilmington, North Carolina, resident Riahn Brewington struggled as he tried to pull out a fish from Cape Fear River last week. He caught a catfish, but not just any catfish: a giant catfish that weighed more than 112 pounds. The bloated fish was bigger than the top half of Brewington’s body. Brewington couldn’t believe his eyes, and neither could his friends when the fisherman posted his prized catch on Facebook. “Holy Catfish!!!” one Facebook user exclaimed....

    Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN)The officer who fatally shot Keith Lamont Scott won't face charges, a prosecutor said Wednesday, closing a two-month investigation into the killing that led to heated protests and divided the city of Charlotte. Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray said he didn't reach the decision alone; a total of 15 prosecutors unanimously agreed that Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Officer Brentley Vinson was justified in shooting Scott on September 20 in an apartment complex parking lot.

    A North Carolina prosecutor has asked state and federal investigators to help determine if a 69-year-old Vietnam veteran was fatally shot because he supported Donald Trump. However, the local sheriff says there's no evidence yet to connect the drive-by shooting to the campaign sign in the victim's yard. Vance County Sheriff Peter White says Raymond Harrell died at a Durham hospital Tuesday, nearly a month after he was shot while standing in his doorway. The bullet struck near his rib cage. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that District Attorney Michael Waters wants the case reviewed as a possible...

    A nice round-up by CNN of indicators pointing to a Republican win in NC, although all early-voting projections come with a big asterisk. Namely, how will whites, especially those with a college degree, vote? For all the hype about Trump’s strength with white voters this year, he actually underperforms Romney with that group in many polls. Case in point: Romney won whites nationally by 20 in 2012 but Trump led them by just 17 in the final Fox News poll. If Hillary holds more or less steady in black support from 2012 and gets a boost in Latino votes and...

Recent polling by Remington Research shows Trump getting 22% in Florida, Romney got 5 percent. In North Carolina, Trump’s getting 19%, Romney got 4 percent. Trump’s getting 22% of black voters in Wisconsin compared with Romney’s 6% 4 years ago. And in Pennsylvania, Trump scores an astounding 29% against Romney’s 7% share in 2012.

Trump has now passed the 50 percent threshold, according to the poll, making it unlikely that Clinton will be able to bounce back.
