North Carolina 2nd Amendment Defense by Mark Robinson


On Tuesday, while speaking during a city council meeting on curtailing gun violence, an African-American gun owner in North Carolina blasted government officials who want to restrict gun rights of law-abiding citizens.

The city council meeting was held to determine whether the community should cancel an upcoming gun show which is “held twice yearly at the Coliseum, a city-owned building,” WFMY News reported…..


DOJ’s/DOE’s War Against Women (UPDATED!)

A lawyer calls into the Larry Elder Show and makes a great point about how far this Department of Justice stance on the North Carolina bathroom issue.

Here is a New York Times article talking about ANOTHER sweeping — unConstitutional — stomping on states rights that Trump agrees with:

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.

A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.

It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.


Courts have not settled the question of whether the nation’s sex discrimination laws apply in matters of gender identity.


Attached to the letter, the Obama administration will include a 25-page document describing “emerging practices” that are in place in many schools around the country. Those included installing privacy curtains or allowing students to change in bathroom stalls.


The Justice Department has for years made gay and transgender issues centerpieces of its civil rights agenda. Former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. described that campaign as a continuation of the civil rights era that brought equal rights to African-Americans. And this week, Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch spoke passionately to transgender people as she cast the lawsuit against North Carolina in historic terms.

“We stand with you,” she said. “And we will do everything we can to protect you going forward. Please know that history is on your side.”

Trump Tranny

American Thinker makes the point that Ted Cruz was correct on this issue and Donald Trump was woefully wrong:

Some Republicans have defended North Carolina’s law by arguing that it would be inappropriate to allow transgender women to use the same bathroom as young girls. Before ending his presidential bid last week, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas charged that Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, and Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee, “both agree that grown men should be allowed to use the little girls’ restroom.”

Most Americans – at least, it is to be hoped most Americans – are still okay with the commonsense idea of biological males and biological females using separate and distinct restrooms.  Not so okay with it, apparently, is one Donald J. Trump, currently undergoing a personality transplant to make himself look more “presidential.”

Trump, who began his campaign railing against political correctness as he warned of rapists and other undesirables pouring across our borders, has embraced one of the most egregious politically correct tenets of the liberal and loony left – that distinctions between sexes are an artificial and discriminatory construct, that gender is an ambiguous concept, and that individuals should be free to determine their own sexual identity and which restroom to use.  As Politico reports, Trump embraced P.C. restrooms when asked about North Carolina’s restroom privacy law:

Transgender people should be able to use whatever bathroom they want, Donald Trump said Thursday.

“Oh, I had a feeling that question was going to come up, I will tell you. North Carolina did something that was very strong. And they’re paying a big price. There’s a lot of problems,” the Republican presidential candidate said during a town hall event on NBC’s “Today.”….

“There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go. They use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate,” Trump said. “There has been so little trouble. And the problem with what happened in North Carolina is the strife and the economic — I mean, the economic punishment that they’re taking.”…

I think Hot Air hit the nail on the head when they said the following:

  • You know what, though? Evangelical voters across the south had a choice in the primaries. They made their choice. Let them live with the consequences now. Besides, Trump atoned to his base in this same interview when he said that Andrew Jackson, who had “a great history,” should be left on the $20 and Harriet Tubman should instead be put on the $2 dollar bill (in place of … Thomas Jefferson?), which no one uses.

White evangelical Republican voters who attend church weekly favor Cruz; half of less-frequent attenders favor Trump

I touched on this previously in a post showing that if a person goes to church every week, they were much more likely to vote Cruz… if they are nominal church attendees — Trump is there man. Here are some numbers via Christianity Today:

…Of those who attend religious services “more than once a week,” Cruz garnered 56 percent of the vote, outpacing Trump by a full 26 percentage points. Among those who attend religious services once a week, Cruz earned 50 percent of the vote, which was a full 17 points above Trump.

In contrast, with those who only attend services “a few” times a year, Trump won 48 percent of the vote to Cruz’s 29 percent. If Missouri’s numbers are indicative of voters in other states, then Trump does much worse among those who actually take their faith seriously enough to attend religious services consistently. There is some recent research by The Barna Group reported on byVox, which suggests these numbers are indeed consistent with a broader pattern among evangelical voters nationally….

Oh, and Franklin Graham ripped trump on NC bathroom law comment… he saw this chaos coming and removed himself from the Republican doles a while back:

…“I have no hope in the Republican Party and I don’t have any hope in the Democratic Party,” Rev. Franklin Graham said on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.”

“I’m not supporting any candidates,” he told host Stuart Varney. “I’m staying out of the race. The politicians have messed this country up big time.

“I’m unaffiliated [and] I’m independent. I’m just fed up with the politicians. I think the only hope for this country is God.”…


More North Carolina Bathroom “Stuff”

This is merely a lesbian caller with a conservative point of view, then an interview with North Carolina Governor, Pat McCrory. As is usual by the left… there are many false claims made about this bill… as well as fake hate-crimes regarding these issues (fake NC bathroom hatefake cake hate), which is VERY common by the victim-mentality driving the left.

Gay Patriot notes the following “choosing” of laws that explains the inner workings of the direction of the left:

  • Isn’t it interesting that the Obama Administration does absolutely nothing about ‘Sanctuary Cities’ that defy Federal Immigration laws, but they are coming down like a ton of bricks on North Carolina for requiring people to use biologically-appropriate bathrooms in state-owned buildings? (Contrary to the left’s dishonest propaganda, businesses may do as they please, under the law, which is as it should be)….

Larry Elder discusses the issue:


Leftist Ideals Exemplified ~ Cuba vs. North Carolina

Listen to “Ep. 96 – Worst. President. Ever.” on Spreaker.

Description of the above audio: Worst President Ever

Andrew dissects Obama’s insane interaction with Raoul Castro;

and discusses how a culture of narcissism weakens capitalism

  • New York’s Democratic governor banned state travel to North Carolina this week, citing its residents’ supposed lack of equal protection under the law, weeks after he announced efforts to facilitate travel from New York to Cuba, which is ruled by a repressive communist dictatorship that routinely imprisons political dissenters. (Washington Free Beacon)

GAY PATRIOT opines well:

The left-wing Governor of New York is banning state employees from traveling to North Carolina, on the basis that barring biological males from using the women’s bathroom is the worst violation of Human Rights in the History of Everything.

On the other hand, traveling to the Communist Island Gulag of Cuba is something he supports and encourages.


I guess the difference is that northeastern leftists prefer Communists to Southern Christians; [you see,] they understand Communists.

ALLEN WEST links to this article at MENTAL RECESSION:

Symbolism aside, this is the same Democrat Governor who recently traveled to Cuba to establish trade relations with a country notorious for their poor civil and human rights record.

Cuba has no anti-discrimination laws currently regarding the provisions of goods and services. None. They have no anti-discrimination laws regarding hate speech against particular groups. But they do have a constitutional ban against same-sex marriage.

Yet Cuomo seems perfectly fine with that.

North Carolina’s alleged intolerance – Bad. Cuba’s proven intolerance – *shrug*

Nanny State Lunch Police ~ Big Government Craziness (Updated!)

The Blaze has this jaw-dropping story:

A North Carolina mom is irate after her four-year-old daughter returned home late last month with an uneaten lunch the mother had packed for the girl earlier that day. But she wasn’t mad because the daughter decided to go on a hunger strike. Instead, the reason the daughter didn’t eat her lunch is because someone at the school determined the lunch wasn’t healthy enough and sent it back home.

Yes, you read that right.

The incident happened in Raeford, N.C. at West Hoke Elementary School. What was wrong with the lunch? That’s still a head-scratcher because it didn’t contain anything egregious: a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice. But for the inspector on hand that day, it didn’t meet the healthy requirements.

See, in North Carolina, all pre-Kindergarten programs are required to evaluate the lunches being provided and determine if they meet USDA nutrition guidelines. If not, they must provide an alternative.

But that’s not the worst of it. Instead of being given a salad or something really healthy, the girl was given chicken nuggets instead. On top of it, her mother was then sent a bill for the cafeteria food.

Rush Limbaugh talked with a caller on his radio show about this issue… here is the transcript from that conversation:

RUSH: By the way, at West Hoke Elementary School in Raeford, North Carolina, every student had their lunch box inspected. And I think every student failed in having a nutritious lunch by the agent in charge, which is probably an SEIU union cafeteria worker.


RUSH: Lucas in Boone, North Carolina.  Welcome to the EIB Network.  Hello.

CALLER:  Greetings from the People’s Republic of North Carolina.

RUSH:  Thank you, sir.

CALLER:  About eight months ago my wife and I decided to enroll our son in daycare here in North Carolina, and I got this huge packet of sheets that I had to fill out, and they, you know, field trip permission slip, take your photo permission slip, and one of them was, “By signing this you agree that you’ll meet the state’s requirements for a preschool lunch,” even though I’m packing it.  And it says I have to have six ounces of milk or a milk substitute, four ounces of meat or a meat substitute, three ounces of grain, three ounces of vegetable, three ounces of fruit, and goes on and on and on.  And I did not sign it and I fought about it with them and they pointed me to the state official that I could talk to, and they told me that, “If your son doesn’t like milk just pack it anyway and we’ll dump it out for you and then you can pack something else.”  And I said, “Do you know how much a gallon of milk costs?”  And they said, “Well, that’s the rules and you have to follow ’em if you want to be in daycare.” So now I’ve got the government telling me that I’m not smart enough to feed my own child.

RUSH:  Yep.  North Carolina, same state as the kindergarten requirements I just described.

CALLER:  It’s unbelievable.

RUSH:  Same state.  And, I’ll tell you what, this is all coming from Michelle Obama.  There are agents in preschools, kindergartens in North Carolina examining the preschool students’ lunch boxes.  State agents!

Likewise, the UK paper, Mail Online, did a story on this kerfuffle:

A preschool girl was told her homemade meal wasn’t healthy enough so a school cafeteria monitor made her eat chicken nuggets instead.

What could be less healthy than chicken nuggets? A turkey and cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread with a side of a banana, potato chips, and apple juice.

‘What got me so mad is, number one, don’t tell my kid I’m not packing her lunch box properly,’ the mother from North Carolina, who wished to remain anonymous, told a local newspaper.

‘I pack her lunchbox according to what she eats. It always consists of a fruit. It never consists of a vegetable. She eats vegetables at home because I have to watch her because she doesn’t really care for vegetables.’

The Department of Health and Human Services requires students to eat lunches that consist of meat, milk, grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables.

It isn’t clear what the entire meal that the cafeteria at West Hoke Elementary School consisted of, but all that the picky four-year-old girl ate were the chicken nuggets.

That said, Jani Kozlowski, the spokesperson from the DHHS children’s division said that the meal sounds like it would have passed the federal guidelines test.

‘With a turkey sandwich, that covers your protein, your grain, and if it had cheese on it, that’s the dairy,’ Ms Kozlowski told The Carolina Journal.

‘It sounds like the lunch itself would’ve met all of the standards,’ she said, not having worked with the school in question herself.

On top of the wasted food that was sent home with the little girl at the end of the day was a $1.25 bill for the ‘healthy’ school lunch.

‘I don’t feel that I should pay for a cafeteria lunch when I provide lunch for her from home,’ the mother wrote in a letter to her state representative.
