Watauga County Republican Party Meets

For the first time ever, the Republican Party in North Carolina has raised more money than the Democrats. This was the hot-off-the-press news the local Republicans received tonight at their monthly meeting. For 100 years the Democrats have ruled this state with the money always coming to them. Now it is coming to us. What does that tell you?

Russell Peck the Executive Director of the North Carolina Republican party will be our next guest. Mr. Peck is well known after running the successful campaign of New Jersey’s new governor Chris Christie. He also ran the campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin in Ohio and in Florida. So, you know he will have a lot to share. The meeting will be held on Friday, May the 14th at 6:00 p.m. at the “Builder University” conference room in the New River Showcase and Design Center on Hwy. 105 (near the Ingles shopping center). You are invited.

Announcements at the meeting included the news that 21 cars from Watauga County went in the caravan to the Tea Party in Ashe County. Watauga County will have its next Tea Party on July 1. For other information see the local party blog at WataugaGOP. Also, see the link to Facebook on the blog.

Texas may pass the same Illegal Alien Bill as Arizona. I have read N.C is looking at it also. The donations will increase if they do.

I am posting this again as it is relative to Sark's post. Please forgive the repitition.

Utah,Georgia,Colorado, Maryland, Ohio, Texas, Missouri,Oklahoma, Nebraska, and North Carolina are all working on legislation either mirroring or similar to that passed in Arkansas.

It has been said that there is a 95% chance it will be introduced in North Carolina, but it will probably have a difficult time getting out of committee as have other popular bills such as the Castle Doctrine and a bill allowing concealed handguns to be carried in restaurants that serve alcohol. However, this one may cost some liberal politicians their seats even in areas considered safe. The economy is such that people are tired of illegal aliens stealing their jobs, even if they are yellow dog Democrats.

I am going to try to be at the meeting on the 14th. Is this the High Country Home Builder's building?

Sark's comment about donations is likely spot on. Nothing stirs the base and loosens the purse strings like red meat issues being tossed to the mob in the spring before a general (albeit mid-term) election.

Smart move on the part of Republicans to introduce this type of divisive but monetarily attractive legislation.

Given that 15% of Americans are Hispanic, and over 10% are black, Republicans have obviously recognized that they'll need to tap into the whole racial protectionism thing if they want to regain and, more importantly, possibly hold control of Congress.

you forgot to add in there:

1. as our unemployment is between 9% and 18%
(youth unemployment at around 50%).

2. the drug cartels have taken over human smuggling.

3. the jail and prison population being over-run with illegals.

4. cities and counties and states having to cut back budgets that include prison budgets.

5. the US citizens now going on the hook for everybody's health insurance.

6. teacher staffs having to be cut back.

7. illegal gang membership growing at a faster pace than your ability to see the whole picture.

if you don't understand all this, PRESS 2 for Spanish.

A'mous- Bring your head out for a moment and read the following. You may realize why the base is reading to do something about it and giving money to candidates wanting to do something about it's time has arrived:

596 immigrants convicted of crimes nabbed in South
Apr 30 12:51 PM US/Eastern
Associated Press Writer

ATLANTA (AP) - Federal agents say they have arrested 596 immigrants with criminal records during a three-day immigration enforcement sweep across the Southeast.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Friday that the operation, dubbed Operation Cross Check, was the largest ever conducted by the agency targeting foreign nationals convicted of crimes. They said the immigrants have already served their sentences and authorities will now seek to deport them.

Atlanta ICE Field Director Felicia Skinner says that "communities around the Southeast are safer than they were before" as a result. She said three of the people arrested this week had been convicted of murder and 144 were convicted on assault charges.

Should read ready to do something about it.

Is this the High Country Home Builder's building?

I have read training has been increased for the Border Patrol in such things as placing strips to flatten tires and other relatively simple issues. This training has not been increased for other agencies. Could it be that the purpose is to keep Border Patrol agents out of the field so as to not run up the numbers that the Secretary of Homeland Security speaks of? Could the worst recession since FDR have anything to do with these numbers.

I have decided the Home Builders building is not the correct place. Never fear, I will find it.

It is on 105 across from where Poplar Grove Rd. intersects.

A'mous- Another reason the base is pumped:
(I guess it is the AP throwing out red meat to Republican donors)

Deputy shot; illegal immigrants suspected by Associated Press (April 30th, 2010 @ 11:30pm)

A Pinal County Sheriff's deputy prepares to search for a suspect that shot a fellow deputy Friday April 30, 2010 southwest of Stanfield, Ariz. Pinal County sheriff's Lt. Tamatha Villar says the deputy suffered a superficial wound to his abdomen after being shot with an AK-47 assault rifle.

PHOENIX - A veteran sheriff's deputy was shot and wounded Friday after encountering a group of suspected illegal immigrants who apparently had been hauling bales of marijuana along a major smuggling corridor in the Arizona desert- a violent episode that comes amid a heated national debate over immigration.
State and federal law enforcement agencies deployed helicopters and scores of officers in pursuit of the suspects after the deputy was shot with an AK-47 on Friday afternoon, and the search continued into the night. Deputy Louie Puroll, 53, had a chunk of skin torn from just above his left kidney, but the wound was not serious. He was released Friday night from Casa Grande Regional Medical Center.///
