    RALEIGH — Illegal Immigration looks to be one of the hot-button issues in the upcoming midterm election cycle after federal officials reported that for the first time ever the number of illegal immigrants arrested at the U.S.-Mexico border is on pace to exceed 2 million. According to data compiled by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, 4.9 million illegal immigrants have crossed our border since Biden took office. Statistics from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) show crimes committed by illegal immigrants also surged under Biden in 2021, including a 1,900% increase in manslaughter and homicide convictions compared to 2020....

  • SNEAD: Democrats Have Set Their Sights On Another Key State’s Voting Laws

    Daily Caller ^ | September 20, 2022 9:40 PM ET | JASON SNEAD
    Democrats on the North Carolina Supreme Court are once again showcasing the left’s unusual brand of “democracy.” First, the court voted on party lines to seize power to redraw the state’s congressional maps to the advantage of Democrats. Then they concocted a mechanism to declare voter-passed constitutional amendments unconstitutional, putting a voter ID amendment in jeopardy that 55% of North Carolinians favor. Now that same partisan court is rushing to hear a challenge to the voter ID law that enabled that amendment before the November election — and before voters have a chance to elect new justices that may hand...
  • 2 Years in Making, California Reparations Report Offers Ideas For Asheville-Buncombe Commission

    Two years ago, as violent protests shook Asheville and other cities after George Floyd was murdered while in Minneapolis police custody, the Asheville City Council and the Buncombe County Commission passed resolutions in support of reparations for Black residents, to make amends for historic discrimination. Acting at the same time, California established a task force to study and develop a plan for reparations in that state. Last week, the task force overseeing California’s reparations effort released the first part of its work: a landmark 500-page report documenting nearly two centuries of systemic discrimination imposed by the state, the harm it...

    I think what you’re seeing in Asheville right now is a culmination of the last several years of pulling police back and not letting them do their jobs like they’re able to do.. How much more evidence do we need to prove that when you hinder the police and have Democrats in charge, you will have problems? Chicago. New York City. Los Angeles. But now we’re seeing Democratic ideas affecting other cities that wouldn’t come to mind when we think about crime. Asheville, North Carolina, is a city of only 90,000 residents. It’s in the middle of the Blue Ridge...

    While New York, California, and Boston continue to be the most expensive rental markets in the country, some unexpected locales have actually experienced the largest increases in one-bedroom apartment prices year-over-year.Greensboro, North Carolina, sits atop the list with rent increases of 74.2 percent, followed by Newport News, Virginia, at 60.7 percent, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, at 59.8 percent, according to Rent.com’s August report. Jon Leckie, a researcher with Rent.com, told The Epoch Times that such increases aren’t unusual, given the amount of people who have been flocking to these areas.“We’re seeing a pattern where the markets around the larger metro areas...

    Democrats in North Carolina are far outpacing Republicans in the number of absentee ballot requests being submitted just eight weeks from the November midterm elections. According to the state's absentee ballot request report Tuesday, a total of 66,311 absentee ballots have been requested, with Democrats making up the vast majority of that number at 53% of the total, or 35,303 ballots. Republicans have requested just 8,907, or 13%. Those unaffiliated with any party have requested 21,917, Libertarians have requested 181, and members of the Green Party have requested just 3.
  • Nurses Can Be Sued for Following Doctor’s Orders, NC Court Rules (North Carolina)

    Nurses in North Carolina can now be sued for following doctors’ orders when they cause harm to the patient. On Friday, August 19, 2022, a narrowly-split North Carolina Supreme Court struck down a 90-year-old precedent that protected nurses from liability. The opinion of the three justices in favor of overturning the ruling stated that because nursing had evolved, the decision was necessary. The two dissenting justices countered that holding nurses accountable for physicians’ decisions would create “liability without causation.” How this latest ruling will affect future cases is unclear. The full legal briefing can be found here.

    As you know, I don’t typically write articles about who says what on Twitter. But this one was too fun to pass up.Matt Hoh, a Green Party candidate seeking a Senate seat in North Carolina, utterly beclowned himself in a Twitter exchange over the question that is on everyone’s minds nowadays: What is a woman?It’s a question made even more popular by the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh, who filmed a documentary with the same name. Now, some have taken to asking left-leaning candidates seeking office this same question to see how, or if, they will answer. Not surprisingly, not many...

    Stacey Lyn Chahorski of Norton Shores, Michigan, was reported missing in January 1989. But it wasn't until earlier this year that authorities confirmed through a new type of genealogy investigation that a body found in Georgia's Dade County in December 1988 belonged to Chahorski. Now, that same technology has been used to identify her killer as Henry Fredrick "Hoss" Wise, officials with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced Tuesday. Wise also worked as a truck driver for Western Carolina Trucking, traveling through Dade County on his regular route. He had a criminal history in...

    Elite medical schools are deliberately recruiting woke activists, jeopardizing their mission of training physicians. That’s what our organization found in a review of the application process for America’s top 50 medical schools. Nearly three-quarters of these institutions — and 80% of the top 10 — ask applicants about their views on diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism and other politicized concepts. The clear goal is to find the students who will best advance divisive ideology, not provide the best care to patients. We based our review on the 2023 “Best Medical Schools” rankings by US News and World Report. We then looked...

    A North Carolina high school student was killed and another wounded in a knife attack Thursday morning, officials said. A “physical altercation” broke out at Northside High School in Jacksonville just after 7 a.m. that ended with two kids slashed or stabbed — and one teacher with minor injuries, cops said at a news conference. A student was arrested in the incident, but police haven’t disclosed charges and are continuing to investigate. Two student resource officers stationed at the school responded, with the first on the scene within 20 seconds, Jacksonville Public Safety Chief Mike Yaniero told reporters. The two...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s influential state chapter of the NAACP has lost its federal tax-exempt status for failing to file tax returns for three years, according to the federal government. The state chapter has been a prominent voice in decrying the policies of the state’s Republican-controlled legislature, including challenging voter access laws in recent years. Earlier this month, the civil rights group scored a victory when the state Supreme Court ruled a lower court must consider nullifying a voter ID mandate approved by citizens in 2018. The loss of tax-exempt status became public weeks after former state chapter...

    With the start of classes at George Washington Law School, I have already had visits to my office of conservative and libertarian students asking if I thought they could speak freely in other classes without being penalized by professors. Despite teaching for decades, it is a question that I never heard from students until the last few years. It is now routine. It is the widespread fear of conservative students who have faced faculties with overwhelmingly liberal viewpoints and growing intolerance on virtually every campus. Now a new study at North Carolina confirms how conservative students routinely “self-censor” and do...
  • Democrats: Abortion Rulings May Be ‘a Blessing in Disguise'

    Democratic candidates have decried North Carolina’s newly reinstated abortion restrictions after a federal judge allowed a state law banning nearly all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy to go into effect. But some North Carolina Democrats say the ruling earlier this month — the latest fallout of the June U.S. Supreme Court decision eliminating federal abortion protections — might be the catalyst their party needed to reinvigorate its political prospects in what was shaping up to be a losing year.

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    CNN climbed up on its politically-correct soapbox on Monday's New Day with the subject being monkeypox thanks to this declaration from CNN national correspondent Dianne Gallagher that, in no uncertain terms, "monkeypox is NOT a sexually-transmitted infection."Showing just how woke she was, Gallagher even lectured the Biden administration as to how it must handle the outbreak: "If the Biden administration wants its outreach to be a success, celebrating [pride] while educating, without discriminating, is the only way to approach it." There's a problem, however, with Gallagher's self-righteous spiel. All the data indicates that the overwhelming number of cases occurs among...

    North Carolina’s Supreme Court has made one of the most insane judicial decisions in the nation’s history, and that’s absolutely not hyperbole. In what can only be described as a full-scale judicial coup, the Democrat-controlled body has ruled that the North Carolina General Assembly is illegitimate and can not enact amendments to the state’s constitution. Their reasoning? That the state’s legislature is “gerrymandered.”

    Gov. Roy Cooper officially ended North Carolina’s COVID-19 State of Emergency on Monday. North Carolina’s COVID-19 state of emergency had remained in effect since March 2020. “The pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to our state and people now have the knowledge and the tools like vaccines, boosters and therapeutic treatments to keep them safe,” Cooper said in a news release. “Executive orders issued under the State of Emergency protected public health and helped us save lives and livelihoods. “North Carolina is emerging even stronger than before and my administration will continue to work to protect the health and safety of our...

    As midterm election campaigns heat up in the Senate’s top battlegrounds, the National Republican Senatorial Committee is canceling millions of dollars of ad spending, sending GOP campaigns and operatives into a panic and upending the committee’s initial spending plan. The cuts — totaling roughly $13.5 million since Aug. 1 — come as the Republicans’ Senate campaign committee is being forced to “stretch every dollar we can,” said a person familiar with the NRSC’s deliberations. Republican nominees in critical states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and North Carolina — places the GOP must defend this fall — have failed to raise enough money...
