    Under the guise of a funeral home, a North Carolina advertising agency launched an unconventional advertising campaign early this week, with a goal to persuade the vaccine-hesitant to take the coronavirus shot. According to The Washington Post, digital billboards on the sides and back panels of a black truck that looped around Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte during Sunday’s Carolina Panthers game were emblazoned with the words “Don’t get vaccinated.” In white lettering, under the words of warning, were the name and web address of a business appearing to be a funeral home, including a 10-digit phone number, according...

    A 3-year-old boy was killed and his 4-year-old sister was wounded when several gunmen fired nearly 150 rounds into a North Carolina home — in what police believe was tied to a high school feud. Asiah Figueroa was asleep just before midnight Tuesday when the suspected teenage gunmen pulled up in two cars to his great-grandmother’s Charlotte home and squeezed off hundreds of bullets, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said. Asiah was struck by the gunfire and later died at a hospital. His 4-year-old sister was also struck, but is expected to survive, police said. Investigators released two videos of the suspects pulling...

    The Charlotte Observer is calling on the GOP to censure Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) over comments he made this week about political violence. The newspaper's editorial board said Republicans should condemn Cawthorn for warning of potential "bloodshed" if elections "continue to be rigged." "Cawthorn can no longer be dismissed as a silly Congressman braying from the mountains of North Carolina. His rhetoric is dangerous, not only to his party but his country. It’s time to stop ignoring him," the editorial board wrote.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. energy company says a cyberattack forced it to temporarily halt all operations on a major pipeline that delivers roughly 45% of all fuel consumed on the East Coast. Colonial Pipeline said the attack took place Friday and also affected some of its information technology systems. The company transports gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and home heating oil from refineries primarily located on the Gulf Coast through pipelines running from Texas to New Jersey. The Alpharetta, Georgia-based company said it hired an outside cybersecurity firm to investigate the nature and scope of the attack and has also...

    Former Republican Gov. Pat McCrory on Wednesday announced he'll run for the U.S. Senate in North Carolina, shaking up the calculus in the expanding field to succeed retiring Sen. Richard Burr with the entrance of a veteran of statewide politics. McCrory, who served as governor for four years through 2016, revealed his plans on his morning radio show in Charlotte, where he also served a record 14 years as mayor. McCrory had said in late 2019 that he would strongly consider a Senate bid in 2022. He has quietly built a team of experienced consultants and fundraisers. “I'm in,” he...

    Game over. Two women wound up in a knock-down, hair-dragging battle over a PS5 game console at a North Carolina Walmart this week, leaving both apparently bruised and empty-handed. The two women exchanged punches over the hot ticket item at a Walmart in Charlotte on Dec. 13, TMZ reported. Video of their confrontation has since gone viral. A woman with long braids can be seen shouting at another woman with a black hoodie, “What the --–- are you gonna do?” At one point, a man in a motorized scooter and a woman in a red mask try to intervene

    Noncitizens are embedded in North Carolina jury and voting pools, raising new questions about the integrity of elections, according to an immigration reform group. The Immigration Reform Law Institute on Monday said it had uncovered examples of noncitizens, and likely also illegal immigrants, in the pools in Charlotte, North Carolina, and other key areas dating back to 2012. Working with the Voter Integrity Project, IRLI conceded that the numbers were not enough to overturn election results but point to the lack of “political will” by government officials to clean up their rolls. Voter Integrity Project co-founder Jay Delancy said, “The...

    The Lincoln Project falsely claimed on Monday that a Trump supporter called former President Barack Obama a "monkey." In a since-deleted tweet, Project Lincoln posted a video of President Donald Trump's re-nomination speech on the first day of the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Trump stated that the Democrats are trying to steal the presidential election again, but this time with universal mail-in voting which the GOP claims is a liability for voter fraud. The Left's vote-by-mail campaign was preceded by spying in the 2016 race. Trump noted that Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden were among...
