The North Carolina House passed a bill that would prohibit abortions to be provided solely based on the race, sex, or presumed presence of Down syndrome in the baby. Six Democrats joined all the Republicans to approve the measure, including Rep. James Gailliard (D-Nash), who made some of the nastiest remarks opposing the bill.

I'm old enough to remember when NC Gov. Roy Cooper told us we had to have two-thirds of adults partially vaccinated before he'd drop the mask mandate. But the CDC's abrupt shift late last week apparently overruled that metric. Because Science™.

I joined KC O'Dea on his morning show in Raleigh & Greensboro to talk about the new CDC guidance that says fully vaccinated people don't need to wear masks indoors anymore.

The CDC now says fully vaccinated people can return to virtually all pre-pandemic activities. Is this timing based on Science ™ or... something else. Plus, the NC House passes a resolution calling for an amendment to the US Constitution that would set the number of US Supreme Court justices at nine. Also, another attempt to provide whistleblower protections to cops (and all city employees) fails in the NC House for the third time i...

North Carolina Congressman Dan Bishop (R-9th Dist.) announced legislation aimed at banning Critical Race Theory in "federal government agencies, grantees, and contractors from using workplace training." A couple hours later, the North Carolina House passed a similar resolution over objections of Democrats - who made outlandish claims about what the bill would do.

A cyber-attack on the Colonial Pipeline prompts gas shortages all over the Southeast. The hackers apologized, though, and said they were only trying to extort the company - not cause problems. Meanwhile, violent crime is on the rise in America - and Asheville has one of the highest crime rates in the nation. And, finally, Republicans in the House of Representatives vote to remove Liz Cheney from her #3 leadership position. Suppo...

The North Carolina House passed a bill to increase the penalties for rioting. In a floor speech, Democrat Abe Jones from Raleigh lit into rioters and their apologists - saying the "the police were told to stand down" in Raleigh as "these people tore the hell out of downtown." Jones said he despises the violent actors, and that "many people of liberal, progressive persuasion who are Democrats don't tolerate i...

As North Carolina lawmakers look to increase penalties for rioting, opponents seem to argue that physical violence is protected speech. Also advancing this week in the General Assembly -- legislation banning secret legal settlements against the state, and a bill protecting the ability of family members to be with their dying relatives during a pandemic.

North Carolina Congressman Greg Murphy, MD says the head of the CDC needs to resign, after reports that the health agency wrote its school reopening guidance based on what the national teachers union wanted. In my interview with the Republican Representative from NC's Third District, Dr. Murphy says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should not be influenced by political special interests when crafting medical guida...

North Carolina moves closer to eliminating the century-old, Jim Crow-era 'pistol purchase permit' system that opponents say was designed to keep Blacks from owning firearms. The lawmakers passed a bunch of police reform legislation, as well. Also, the General Assembly wants teachers to post their lesson plans online for parents to view... prompting outrage from the teachers' union. Support the show: https://www.pat...

It's the crazy season in the North Carolina General Assembly, as lawmakers try to get their bills passed before the May 13 "crossover" deadline. One bill, dubbed the Clean Slate Act, would allow people to get certain criminal records expunged if they stay out of trouble. Marc Hyden from the R Street Intitute joins me to discuss. Plus, the owners of a Haywood County motel and RV park sparked outraged after posting ACAB (...

It's never made sense to force people to wear a mask outside. Good ventilation has always been an ignored key in reducing coronavirus transmission. But after a year of mandating it, the North Carolina Governor says we are free to be maskless outside. (Gee! Thanks!) Also, he expects to lift all other restrictions on capacity, distancing, and gatherings on June 1.... but NOT the mask mandate for INDOORS. If we want that order lif...

President Joe Biden offered a conflicting vision and assessment of the nation in his first address to a joint session of Congress. We're inherently and structurally racist, yet we're the greatest country in the world. We need to pass a jobs bill, yet he's already overseen the biggest job growth in 100 days ever seen. Vaccines are the key to returning to normal, yet the chamber was limited to 200 people... spaced 3 mile...

But in reality, it was a breeding ground for abuse. This is the story of Anneewakee, as never told before.
