A new word-discouragement campaign at Duke University has labeled phrases such as “Man Up,” “That’s So Gay,” and “Don’t Be a Pussy” offensive language that “delegitimizes” homosexuality and oppresses and insults people.
As Goes North Carolina, So go Republican hopes to take over the Senate
Posted on Saturday, April 19, 2014 3:24:58 PM by Clintonfatigued
To win the Senate, Republicans must win North Carolina. While it’s mathematically possible to take the Senate without ousting Democratic senator Kay Hagan, the chances of that happening are close to zero. For Republicans, North Carolina is necessary. It’s the key to control of the Senate.

Pentagon to deploy huge blimps over Washington, DC for 360-degree surveillance
RT ^ | 07/26/2013 | RT
Posted on Friday, July 26, 2013 5:13:50 AM by TexGrill
A pair of high-tech Army blimps is coming to the greater Washington, DC area, and soon they will be able to provide the military with surveillance powers that spans hundreds of millions of acres from North Carolina to Niagara Falls, Canada.
The airships are part of Raytheon’s Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System, or JLENS, and when all is said and done they’ll offer the United States military what the defense contractor calls “an affordable elevated, persistent over-the-horizon sensor system” that relies on “a powerful integrated radar system to detect, track and target a variety of threats.”

When I raised my own objections to the treaty to Sen. Hagen of North Carolina, I specifically questioned why we would want to accede our sovereignty to a foreign entity. She told me that we would not have to cede any rights to the U.N. that were counter to our own laws.
Were that true, why sign the treaty, I asked? If it is ineffectual, at best it is a waste of time. And if it is not ineffectual, why were we relinquishing our national authority? How was that in our best interest? She did not respond.

Doug Hagmann tells seminar three major crisis events are imminent… “He went back to the theme of his latest article, “DHS Insider” It’s about to get very ugly,” as he warned, “Things are going to begin to happen soon.” Doug told the audience, “Everyone here will have tremendous impact on their sphere of influence.” “People you meet in our life, you’re prepared for what’s coming,” he said as he continued and described how sources within the Department of Homeland Security, former Department of Justice people he knows and others are opening their eyes.”

Raleigh-Durham, NC-Three major crisis events are about to take place, revealed Doug Hagmann, the featured speaker Saturday 8 June 2013, on the second day of the “National Insecurity” seminar held in at the Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church outside of Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
Doug Hagmann was expanding on his latest Canada Free Press article, “DHS Insider: It’s about to get very ugly.” This explosive story, in which he wrote would contain more details than the story revealed, needs to be read to under the context of his seminar speech.

Invasion! DHS Source Tells Why Military Train in U.S. Cities
The Allegiant ^ | February 6, 2013. | David BardPosted on Monday, February 11, 2013 2:57:07 PM by Nachum
A news article was sent to me earlier this week. It appeared in the Beaufort Gazette. The article stated that later this week about 150 Marines and Navy personnel will hold realistic urban training in Jasper County, South Carolina.
This was one of many joint military-local law enforcement exercises that had come to my attention in less than one month. Held in cities across the U.S., they were becoming more common and more intense. But why? Why train in populated towns and cities where accidents could produce unnecessary casualties?
The Gazette further reported that the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit will train within Ridgeland town limits. The times and exact locations for the training are not being announced, according to 2nd Lt. Gerard R. Farao.A little background on the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit 26th MEU. It is one of seven Marine Expeditionary Units. A MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force with a strength of about 2,200 personnel.
The MEU consists of four major parts: a command element, a ground combat element, an aviation combat element, and a logistics element. The 26th MEU was establishment in the early 1970s and has deployed extensively, and participated in numerous combat and contingency operations. The 26th MEU is based out of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

A nationwide flu outbreak could be a sufficient excuse to call up the National Guard Rapid Response Parallel support module to take control of a “national emergency” with possible declaration of martial law protocols. According to a North Carolina police lieutenant, in some three to six months declarations of martial law could be made throughout the nation.

TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to an article in the winter 2012 issue of the Journal of American Physicians
Subjects are placed in a chamber in which they breathe diesel exhaust emissions from trucks parked outside.
For more than 10 years, EPA has imposed regulations costing the economy billions of dollars, based on the claim that small particles (“PM2.5″) kill thousands, even hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. PM2.5, which consists of particles smaller in diameter than a human hair, is produced by natural and industrial processes, farming, fires, engine exhausts, industrial grinding and friction, even dust from the ground in the desert.

The democrat explained that he proudly voted illegally “to save our country from the world envisioned by Mitt and his fear mongering followers.”
You can read the original post below:The post was quickly deleted, though Turner says that its deletion was “a conspiracy inspired by some who see our national glass as half empty:”…..
Imagine you go to the polls and choose Mitt Romney on an electronic machine, but your vote comes up Barack Obama. So you re-enter your choice, but the president’s name still stubbornly appears. Then a third try. Ditto.

2012 GENERAL ELECTION – 112 YEAR OLD VOTERS – NORTH CAROLINA – Votes Cast: 3,075 IN THIS GROUP
THEIR PARTY AFFILIATION IS APPROX. 70% D / 30% R / 10% UNAFFILIATED – THE REAL CONCERN IS THERE IS NOT THAT MANY 112 YEAR OLDS ALIVE. IT DOES NOT TELL WHO THEY’VE VOTED FOR.
…..The Military Vote
Not only should our soldiers votes be counted ahead of all other votes, as it is those soldiers who pay for our Right with their blood, they MUST be counted. It’s both right and necessary.
Because Democratshave been overtly anti-Military since the 1960s, decimating the military at every opportunity and shifting more and more funding away from National Security and into Social Engineering, soldiers have consistently voted 80% Republican for decades.
Democrats have attacked Tri-Care, Social Security, Medicare, Defense spending and Military Rules of Engagement, for years now, resulting in a HUGE increase in KIA and WIA among soldiers on the field of battle and struggling veterans at home.

Two smothered stories: Vets running away from Obama; even NPR fans not happy with illegal aliens « « Coach is RightCoach is Right
By Kevin “Coach” Collins
The battleground states that the media’s fake polls are assigning to Barack Obama are populated by a large number of military veterans. Florida alone has 1.6 million and Ohio Virginia and North Carolina have nearly 1 million each.
These numbers are extremely important because at least one Left wing media outlet Reuters, is reporting that Mitt Romney has an insurmountable 20 point lead over Barack Obama among veterans. While insisting that their Democrat skewed survey “results” are showing a growing overall lead for Obama, Reuters has been forced to acknowledge that veterans are less supportive of Obama now than they were four years ago.
This lead whether it is being accurately reported or shorted holds across all veteran age groups. This will be a major factor in the election because 49% of veterans are 65+ a group that intends to vote at 86%.Obama’s problem with veterans is that they are aware of his policies and hostility toward the military…….
Grady Howard, 74, who said he began riding motorcycles about 50 years ago with his wife, Barbara, said during the Labor Day weekend event in Mount Airy he was forced to switch to the three-wheeled design due to leg aches and other health issues, The New York Timesreported Friday.

I just got off the phone with a concerned Florida activist, Laura Noble, who informed me that both of Florida’s Rules Committeemembers, Peter Feaman and Kathleen King, have been removed from the Rules committee and replaced with Romney-appointed delegates.
The closer America gets to Election Day, the more some worry about the possibility of there not being one.
Obama is smiling all the way through the polls, and it may not merely be whistling past the cemetery this time.

…..Three other men died in Marine Corps jumping accidents not related to the performance of the parachute. Two men drowned after landing in water; one at Norfolk, Virginia, and one at New River, North Carolina. The final fatality occurred when a New River trainee lost his nerve just as he approached the door of the plane.
He moved out of the line of jumpers, but his static line became tangled with the next man to go out. The non-jumper’s parachute opened while he was inside the plane and the billowing chute slammed him against the aircraft body hard enough to wreck the door and sever his spine.
The most unusual accident occurred near San Diego, California, on 15 May 1941. Second Lieutenant Walter A. Osipoff and 11 enlisted men of Company A were making a practice jump over Kearney Mesa. Everyone else had exited the plane and he threw out a cargo pack, which possibly tangled in his static line.
His parachute opened prematurely while he was still in the door of the plane; it billowed outside the aircraft and pulled him out, but the canopy and suspension lines tangled in the bundle of static lines streaming beside the transport. For a moment the cargo pack, Osipoff and his partially opened parachute were all suspended from the cable that held the static lines.

CHANTILLY, Va. – As the the exclusive Bilderberg Conference being held at the Westfields Marriott Convention Center starts to wind down, the protests are just getting started.
WND was on the scene early in the morning to meet the protestors and find out what motivated them to spend their weekend keeping a watchful eye on this elusive gathering.
An anonymous protestor from North Carolina commented to WND that he attended because “I wanted to see if this was real.” He detailed how the attendees were the “top .01 percent of the world financial elite.”
While the mainstream media would be quick to dismiss the protestors as a group of conspiracy theorists, a wider range of the political spectrum was represented. Tea partiers, libertarians, traditional conservatives and even a few occupiers were woven into the coalition of long-time Bilderberg hunters.
The watchful guardians of the entire protest were the Oath Keepers, a group of patriotic servicemen involved in the military and police who swear fealty to the Constitution.

That is exactly the claim made by the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition. In December 2011, diabetic blogger Steve Cooksey started a Dear Abby-style advice column on his popular blog (www.diabetes-warrior.net) to answer reader questions.
One month later, the State Board informed Steve that he could not give readers advice on diet, whether for free or for compensation, because doing so constituted the unlicensed, and thus criminal, practice of dietetics. The State Board also told Steve that his private emails and telephone calls with readers and friends were illegal, as was his paid life-coaching service. The State Board went through Steve’s writings with a red pen, indicating what he may and may not say without a government-issued license……..

About a month ago, EPA regional official Al Armendariz made news when a YouTube video of him describing the way the agency handles oil and gas companies surfaced. In it, Armendariz said an analogy he liked to use about enforcement was how the Romans used crucifixion to keep smaller towns and villages under their thumb. Since then, Armendariz has resigned his post at the EPA. Case closed, right? Wrong.
A local North Carolina man named Larry Keller didn’t particularly like the analogy that Al Armendariz used, so, along with thousands of others assumably, he set about to contact Mr. Armendariz to discuss his views on the oil and gas industries. One of our basic rights and privileges in a free society is to be able to petition our government for a redress of grievances without fear of repercussion from said government simply for voicing our grievance.
