Governor Bev Perdue of North Carolina made a controversial decision when the state was devastated by storms in winter of 2010: she declared a state of emergency. That declaration was quickly followed by one from the city of King, which banned possession of alcohol and guns outside the home.

More Support for Voter ID Law in North Carolina

-By Warner Todd Huston at True The Vote

The Wake County Board of Commissioners recently put its stamp of approval of the North Carolina voter ID law identified as House Bill 351, the bill vetoed last year by Governor Beverly Perdue.

In a close 4-3 vote, the board passed a resolution that “respectfully endorses House Bill 351.”

The resolution states that the Wake County Board of Commissioners shows its support “for any state legislation which thoughtfully and prudently reasonably requires voter identification and which identification is readily accessible to all voters.”

The vote was a closely split decision.

After more than 30 minutes of debate, commissioners Betty Lou Ward, James West and Ervin Portman voted against the measure. Commission Chairman Paul Coble, as well as commissioners Tony Gurley, Joe Bryan, Phil Matthews voted in favor of it.

Board Chairman Paul Coble denies claims that he and those members that approved the resolution are meddling in business outside their purview.

“Absolutely not. This bears directly on county business,” Coble said.

Coble said a recent Morrisville election that turned on a handful of votes shows the importance of preventing possible voting fraud at all levels of government.

Governor Perdue vetoed the law claiming that it might “discourage voting” but more North Carolinians are lining up in support of HB 351 all the time, so it seems but a matter of time that the law or one like it make a return visit to the legislature for another try at passage.

The Wake County Board resolution raises the question if local jurisdictions might try to pass their own, local forms of a voter ID law. The NAACP perceived such a trend and tried to head it off warning local officials not to try passing their own versions of voter ID rules.

Our government was built upon the belief that election results represent the true will of the people; our election processes were always intended to be supported by citizen volunteers. If you are one of the millions of Americans outraged by the corruption of our government, help stop the corruption where it starts – at the polls. Get involved with True the Vote, right here, right now. Let’s work together to true the vote in every election across our nation!

The 2011 Jackass of the Year

Bev Perdue

Well… it’s come to this. Queen Bev was the overwhelming choice of CPO  readers as 2011′s ultimate jackass. This marks the third straight year she’s been in the top 5, and the first time in the number one slot.

I could write a long post about what qualifies her for this illustrious award.

Or I could just remind you of some of the headlines we’ve written about her this year:

- Gov. Bev Perdue has hired two of the state’s most prominent criminal defense lawyers as scrutiny of her 2008 campaign activity continues.

-Despite being given the boot by the voters back in November, Bob Etheridge (Jackass of the Year, 2010) will still be able to flush our tax dollars down the toilet.  Gov. Beverly Perdue appointed Etheridge as NC’s Stimulus Czar.

-Gov. Bev Perdue said she’s lobbying the federal government to help the state figure out how to repay millions in money the state borrowed to pay unemployment benefits – a problem that is baffling state legislators.

-Perdue Vetoes ObamaCare Challenge: Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue on Saturday vetoed a Republican-backed challenge to the federal health care overhaul.

-Gov. Bev Perdue on Monday appointed Jena Culler and Tyyawdi Hands to two vacant Mecklenburg District Court judgeships. Both Culler and Hands were unseated in the November elections.

-In a historic move, Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue today vetoed the GOP-authored $19.7 billion budget, despite Republican legislative leaders’ confidence that they have enough override votes.

-Perdue Vetoes Voter ID Bill.

Bev’s “Racist” Invite. Shame on you Bev!

Every Constitutional Conservative Needs to Read This!!!

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | The Real Revo

For over a year, I have been saying that it is my belief that if Obama feels he cannot win reelection, that there is a strong possibility of a declared emergency and election suspensions. Cue the rolling of the eyes and the statements of, “There she goes again.” Well, it would appear I am not alone in my assessment.

Judi McLeod at Canada Free Press put it very succinctly:

The fool proof way for Barack Obama to guarantee his re-election would be to suspend the 2012 election.

Thanks to North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue, suspending elections is an idea whose time has come.

Perdue’s proposal dropped like the proverbial bombshell at a Rotary Club event was offered as a means for politicians to gain time to tackle crippling unemployment and a stagnant economy.

Was Perdue stretching for Rotarian attention or advancing an idea already on Obama’s agenda?


I just wanted to give a ‘hat tip’ to one of American Freedom’s Patriots, Talon’s Point, who had pointed this out the day after Gov. Bev Perdue suggested that maybe we should hold off the elections.  Talon’s Point said,

“Perdue floated the trial balloon for the Dems.  Just wait to see what the quid pro quo is.”


One other little side note, Bev Perdue also belongs to the Council of Governors that Obama put together. I warned about this council from the beginning and I do not believe it was an accident that this suggestion came from one of it’s members.

I’m a NC resident and Gov. Bev Perdue meant every word she said!!!

Posted by Sarah Roman

Being that I am a North Carolina resident, it would be unfair of me to not share with my fellow Americans the TRUTH about Governor Bev Perdue.

Sure, there is all of this talk in the liberal media that Gov. Perdue was ‘joking’.  Hahahaha!  Yeah right!  And I’m planning on voting for Obama.  Bev Perdue has went against EVERYTHING that the citizens of NC has wanted.  There have been multiple bills passed since she has been in office… only to have them vetoed when it reached her desk for signature.  Just a few short months ago, for the first time in our states history her vetoes were vetoed.  Not just one veto… several vetoes.

Just Google “Bev Perdue corruption” and see what all you find.  You would be amazed!

Don’t buy into the “she was just joking” story.  That was typical ‘Bev talk’.  She meant every word that she said.  The only difference is this time she got national attention!  I knew that one day Bev’s words would catch up to her… I just didn’t know when.

Obama struggling in North Carolina

As President Obama talks about his jobs bill today in North Carolina, he’ll be in one of the most watched states of the 2012 election.

Since Jimmy Carter in 1976, Democrats have had high hopes for carrying the Tar Heel State in a presidential race — but none did until Obama in 2008.

Holding it may be essential to Obama’s chance at re-election in 2012 — but, as in many places, Obama is struggling politically in North Carolina.

Public Policy Polling, a North Carolina-based firm, reports that Obama’s approval rating in North Carolina has hit a low of 43%.

Obama’s got two big problems in North Carolina, the pollsters say: “independents and a loss of support with his party base.”

The president seeks to bring up those numbers with his visit today to a small business near Raleigh and a jobs speech at North Carolina State University.
