A Pragmatist!

Food for thought for those who are not to closed minded to at least look at and consider another point of view!

A pragmatist is someone who is pragmatic, that is to say, someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn’t let emotion distract them.

The following was discovered on Facebook today. As you can see it is from a few months ago but it seems to be something that we thought might be of interest. Regardless of whom you support in the Republican Presidential race of 2016 this is a rather insightful piece. It is certainly food for thought!

Trump Is Not Conservative, He’s A Pragmatist
By Mychal Massie on January 19, 2016 in Daily Rant, Race & Politics

We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation was jocund, ranging from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics. At one point reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.


I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and understands it must be fixed. He doesn’t see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.

Viewing problems from a liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending, globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff – appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.

Immigration isn’t a Republican problem – it isn’t a liberal problem – it is a problem that threatens the very fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.

The impending collapse of the economy isn’t a liberal or conservative problem it is an American problem. That said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because the Democrats and Republicans know only one way to fix things and the longevity of their impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect. Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.

Trump uniquely understands that China’s manipulation of currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem. It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and he understands the proper balance needed to fix it. Here again successful businessmen like

Trump who have weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand what is necessary to make business work and they, unlike both sides of the political aisle, know that if something doesn’t work you don’t continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.

As a pragmatist Donald Trump hasn’t made wild pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket, free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through a Carl’s Hamburgers.

I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems.

I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems.

You may not like Donald Trump but I suspect that the reason people do not like him is because: 1) he is antithetical to the “good old boy” method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers of politicians; 2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a candidate speak who is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who own them vis-a`-vis donations; 3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political ideology; and 4) he is someone who understands that it takes more than hollow promises and political correctness to make America great again.

Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to “out crazy” one another. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the bankers, corporations, and big dollar donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it but common sense tells anyone willing to face facts that people don’t give tens of millions without expecting something in return.

We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has it brought us? Are we better off today or worst off? Has it happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought on by both parties?

I submit that a pragmatist might be just what America needs right now. And as I said earlier, a pragmatist sees a problem and understands that the solution to fix same is not about a party, but a willingness and boldness to get it done.

People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

Asks for Evidence – Called A Bully!

Yep that pretty much sums it up for many of us North Carolina Republicans. We have been seeing and hearing all about the ongoing conflict between the NCGOP Chairman, NCGOP Executive Director, their accompanying supporters and what the Grassroots people refer to as the Ruling Elite Establishment Republicans.

We have been seekicalledAbullyng the truth, evidence of who, what and why there is such a divide and conflict going on here. Unfortunately we have been either ignored belittled or bullied.

This all began prior to Chairman Hasan Harnett being elected at the 2015 NCGOP Convention, where candidate Harnett had reserved a hospitality suite for the convention and just before the convention was to begin “SOMEONE” from the NCGOP called and had the room canceled. These attempts to undermine the duly elected Chairman have continued to what can only be termed “Ridiculous!”

We have two different versions of this story for your consideration. First is from Chairman Hasan Harnett in his March 25, 2016

Message to NC Republicans

I hate that this internal conflict has boiled over and gone public. I have tried for many weeks to get this resolved privately. My name and reputation have been attacked. I am a volunteer Chairman. I sacrifice my time, honor, and fortune for this party. I want nothing more than it to grow and be a successful organization. Read More

Next we have a very well crafted explanation from a member of the Central Committee, Assistant Secretary of the NCGOP Scott Cumbie, who also posted his comments on March 25, 2016.

A Resolution of No Confidence

On March 20, 2016, the Central Committee of the NCGOP passed a Resolution of No Confidence in the current Chairman of the NCGOP. Since then, there have been many public postings and statements made by the Chairman and others concerning this matter. Since the issues that brought the Central Committee to this point should have been dealt with within the Republican Party and not in public, the Central Committee has limited what it has stated publicly in hopes the Chairman will work with the Central Committee on a resolution. Read More

3sidestoastoryMuch has been made of this conflict on social media with lines being drawn in the sand and separating many into diametrically opposed camps. This is causing a great divide in the Republican party of North Carolina at a critical time regarding the future of our State and Nation.

Cabarrus Conservative Alliance has been made aware that there are ongoing efforts by some well intended members of the Republican Party to broker a meeting of the primary parties in this conflict without any outside interference from well wishers, party officials or any others who have a bone to pick on this matter.

CCA-PAC challenges Chairman Harnett, Vice Chairwoman Michele Nix, Ex. Director Woodhouse, Kim Cotten West, the 3rd district Chairwoman, Ken Robol the website coordinator for the 3rd district NC GOP and Tom Stark NC GOP General Counsel to accept the help of those who are working toward brokering a private meeting to discuss this matter and to resolve it once and for all for the benefit of the registered Republican voters of North Carolina. Referencing Rules for Patriots, Rule #6. Winning is more important than who gets the credit. We have some very important elections coming up this year and Republicans winning those seats is and should be paramount to our efforts.

The registered Republicans of North Carolina deserve better than this from our Party Leadership and we are all pretty much fed up with the infighting, petty bickering and efforts by some to outright sabotage the success of our Party and the duly elected Chairman and Vice-Chairwoman. We are tired of the finger pointing and the defaming of good people. We want to see our party united and working on a common goal. That goal would be the election of a Republican President and as many down ticket seats as possible in November 2016.

The National Republican Party has already made it known that they would prefer 8 years of Hillary Clinton as President over allowing the will of the people to decide whom they want as their Presidential Nominee for 2016 by instituting a Brokered Convention where the Party Elite force a different Nominee on the Republican voters. The Republicans here in North Carolina simply are not going to sit down, shut up and fall into line with that kind of thinking. We are better than that and we deserve better from our NCGOP officials.

If you are a Registered Republican, we highly encourage you to get involved in your state party operations. If you attended your County Convention and the Precinct meeting you are qualified to attend the District, State and National Conventions. Please do everything in your power to get to those upcoming Conventions and make your voices heard.

Referencing Rules for Patriots, Rule #5. Government goes to those who show up. If enough of us show up and speak up we have an opportunity to make a difference. If not then we will continue to see the same ole tired and failed policies we are all upset over today. Please work to be a part of the Solution not a part of the Problem.

It is our hopes that those principally involved in this conflict will work together to settle this matter before the Convention. If it is not resolved, then the next move is up to the Executive Committee who will take up this issue at the Convention in Greensboro. There are between 500 and 600 members of that Committee and it will be up to them to accept or reject the recommendations of the Central Committee in regard to this matter.

Who is behind the political attack ads?


Cabarrus Jobs Now has mounted an enormous and costly effort to discredit a true Statesman, gentleman and champion of Conservatism in the person of NC House District 82 Representative Larry Pittman.

As reported by Nationally acclaimed blogger Lady Liberty 1885 they are broadcasting an attack advertisement on Time Warner Cable across Cabarrus County’s 82nd House District which as of the latest information available has cost them over $71,000.00.

We have done some fact checking on the allegations they raise in this ad and find once again that they are telling out and out lies about Rep. Pittman’s record in the NC House.

Rep. Pittman has and continues to be ranked among the most conservative members of the house as evidenced by Civitas ranking as the 13th most Conservative member in 2013 and the most Conservative member in 2014.

In addition Grass Roots North Carolina has ranked him 4 stars (their highest rating) as the most gun friendly Representative) for the entire time he has been in the House.

Partners for Educational Freedom recently sent out a mailer acknowledging his efforts and thanking him for “Giving parents the power to choose the school that works best for their children.”

He was instrumental in the passage of House Bill 371 which will allow designated members of the National Guard to carry concealed weapons in public facilities such as recruiting centers and armories and was recognized by Maj. Gen. Gregory A. Lusk, adjutant general of North Carolina National Guard who presented him with “THE NORTH CAROLINA NATIONAL GUARD CIVILIAN COMMENDATION MEDAL” in August 2015.

There are numerous other examples we could mention here but suffice to say the indicated attack ad is totally false and is intended to do nothing but cast aspersions on a hard working Constitution supporting Conservative who puts the needs of the voters first and stands up to the corruption, waste and cronyism that is found both in Raleigh and right here in good ole Cabarrus County.

So you might be thinking who are the people and businesses who are contributing to the lies being spread by Cabarrus Jobs Now or as we lovingly refer to them the “Liars Club of Cabarrus County politics?” Below we have listed a few of the top contributors as reported by CampaignMoney.com

You can click on the title below to see the full report.
Cabarrus Jobs Now “527” Political Organization
Contributions, Expenses, & Filing Information

CJN Top ContributorsAnd just for the record if you are wondering who the founding members of this group are, the Concord Independent Tribune reports …..

Now just what are we going to do about this?

We would like to suggest that it might be interesting and worth your time to inquire of these business owners and private donors why they would be supporting such an organization as Cabarrus Jobs Now?

Ask them if they are aware of how this organization is spending their donations and if they support these deceitful tactics?

Ask them if they are comfortable with their name being directly linked to an organization who has repeatedly put out television attack ads and mailers that were blatant lies against good people.

Then we encourage you to post your findings back here in the comments section. It might be an interesting conversation to say the least and many of these donors might not even know what is being done with their money.

In addition if you feel these deceitful tactics should be countered we ask you to make a generous donation to Cabarrus Conservative Alliance so that we may continue our work of exposing these dirty political activities and to once again restore truth and honesty in the election of our representatives here in Cabarrus County and all of North Carolina. Just click on the donation button above or send a check to Cabarrus Conservative Alliance PAC, 705 Mooresville Rd., Suite 103, Kannapolis, NC 28081. We are required to gather the following information from all contributors contributing over $50, the full name of the contributor, the address, employer and occupational information.

Somebody hit a Nerve!

OOPS! It looks like someone somewhere hit a nerve! Actually we find it very interesting that Mr. Lewis would post something like this on his FaceBook page.

OOPS!Some how we find this entertaining, kinda like the ole adage “If this isn’t the Pot calling the Kettle Black?” It seems that when these tactics are used against honorable “MEN” like Rep. Larry G. Pittman, NC House District 82, that is just looked upon as Politics As Usual. However when it hits a little closer to home and Mr. Lewis’s group of choice is not the one telling the lies or demeaning the “OTHER GUY” then it’s time for the long claws to come out. (Of course we do live in the south and it is the honorable thing for Mr. Lewis to stand up in defense of his wife, Amy Blake.) Oh and just a fleeting thought, we wonder why Amy Blake chooses not to use her married name Lewis? Never mind we are getting off subject.







Yes we would all be Rolling On the Floor Laughing if it were not so sad. We understand that either the Cabarrus Jobs Now group or their “Candidates of Choice”, Mr. Paul Newton and Mr. Michael Fischer have aligned themselves with the highly controversial campaign adviser Dee Stewart. For anyone who follows NC Politics that name should be very familiar as he has advised many highly controversial campaigns over the years. From what we are told, all of which were famous for dirty politics, mud slinging and out and out lies.

Cabarrus Conservative Alliance has no ax to grind where Mrs. Amy Blake(Lewis) is concerned. We simply believe that her very narrow focus on education, (regardless of how much we agree that it is an important issue) leaves a lot of other issues of equal importance to North Carolina voters out. As pointed out, she is an extremely successful educator and overall an extremely nice and likable lady. Unfortunately for Mrs. Amy Blake(Lewis) the voters in NC Senate District 36 want someone who has a broader focus and is not so laser focused on one issue.

Parish Moffitt for NC State Senate District 36
Parish Moffitt for NC State Senate District 36

That is why Cabarrus Conservative Alliance is promoting a candidate who we believe is equally as concerned about multiple issues like Parish Moffitt who’s platform shows how he views more of the issues than just Education.


His website indicates he

  • Supports Reduced Taxes
  • Supports Responsible Government
  • Supports 2nd Amendment Rights
  • Supports Life
  • Supports Education
  • Supports Business and Growth
  • Opposes Toll Roads

We find ourselves in an extremely unusual situation. That being, we agree with Mr. Lewis about at least one thing. The tactics taken by the Cabarrus Jobs Now Group and their candidates of choice Paul Newton and Michael Fischer against any candidate running for office is wrong. On many occasions we have found our Conservative values in conflict with the positions of many candidates running for office. In every case we have worked hard to point out the differences and to always tell the truth about those candidates backed up with factual information that is publicly available to everyone. Therefore, Cabarrus Conservative Alliance does condemn any push poll, advertisement, mailing or anything else that tells lies about any candidate. Pointing out a difference in positions is one thing, prevarications and outright lying is something quit different.

Don’t forget, Voter Registration Deadline for Statewide Primary – 2/19/2016 8:00 AM. Applications must be received by close of business on this day. One Stop Early Voting starts March 3, 2016 and the Statewide Primary is March 15, 2016.

This is the year for you to have your Conservative voice heard, get out the vote, encourage your friends and neighbors to learn about the candidates and if you can take a friend or neighbor to the polls with you to vote. There is a lot at stake this election cycle and every vote counts.

Can a Muslim be a good American?

While we do not know the author of this brief commentary we find it to be one of the very best descriptions of what America is facing.

Mr. Evans has so thoroughly explained this that there should be nothing left to question. Every single American needs to read this.

Why They Hate Us!
Why They Hate Us!

Michael S Evans

“Can a Muslim be a good American?

Theologically – no, because his allegiance is to Allah.
Religiously – no, because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Qur’an 2:256).
Scripturally – no, because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Qur’an.
Geographically – no, because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially – no, because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically – no, because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders) who teach the annihilation of Israel and the destruction of America, the great Satan.
Domestically – no, because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat his wife when she disobeys him (Qur’an 4:34).
Intellectually – no, because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically – no, because Islam, Muhammad, and the Qur’an does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist! Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually – no, because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ we are referring to the Christian’s God and not Allah.

islam_dominateWORLD_smallTherefore, after much study and deliberation, perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans/Canadians; they cannot and will not integrate into the great melting pot of America.
The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.
Muslims everywhere have said they will destroy us from within.”

OUCH! Harrisburg is not Fischer or Newton Country.

OUCH! Harrisburg is not Fischer or Newton country. While Hillary Clinton only had 6 people to greet her in Texas yesterday Michael Fischer and Paul Newton were able to one up her! They had 7 community members show up for their event.

Cabarrus Jobs Now hosted a Meet and Greet event for NC House District 82 candidate Michael Fischer and NC Senate District 36 candidate Paul Newton Thursday evening at the Harrisburg Town Hall Community Room. If turnout is any indication of how Harrisburg feels about these two candidates their time in the political spot light may be short lived. The event hosts outnumbered the community attendees with only 7 members of the community taking advantage of the event and hearing from the candidates.

Founders of the group who has become known as the “Liars Club of Cabarrus County politics” Cabarrus Jobs Now, Diane Honeycutt (Current Cabarrus County Commission Vice Chariman) and Steve Morris (Current Cabarrus County Commission Chariman) were there.

In addition the City Council of Harrisburg was well represented with Mayor Pro Tem Benita Conrad, Chad Baucom and Chris Barfield making up a portion of those in attendance. Chad Baucom welcomed everyone and introduced the candidates while also offering several questions to the candidates during the Q & A portion of the event.

What seemed to be extremely telling was the fact that there was a total of only 18 people in attendance and of that number only 7 were members of the community at large.

This would lead some to question the viability of both Mr. Fischer and Mr. Newton as serious contenders for the NC House District 82 and NC Senate District 36 seats.

In addition it may be a very telling sign that the citizens of Cabarrus County and Harrisburg do not buy the lies told by Cabarrus Jobs Now in the last County Commissioner election and that they are not interested in any candidates that this group of liars would support and endorse for any office.

Fool Me Once!
Fool Me Once!

What’s the old adage? “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” It looks like Cabarrus County voters have seen the lies and are not going to fall for them a second time.

It’s very unfortunate that some people, some rather prominent people of Cabarrus County have been fooled by the “Liars Club of Cabarrus County”, Cabarrus Jobs Now! The list of Hosts for this event read like a list of Who’s Who among Cabarrus County Business people.

Event Host List
Event Host List

We would hope that many of these “Hosts & Supporters” have been led astray by the Liars Club of Cabarrus County Politics and that once they are made aware of whom it is that makes up this group and what the history of this group is, they will quickly and publicly renounce their “Support”.

We believe the voters are smart enough to discern for themselves the difference between a truly Conservative candidate and these fakes who only talk about being Conservative, who only talk about representing the voters when in fact they will be representing either special interests like CJN, big business (like Duke Energy) or are working to further their own political careers. The alternative being those representatives who truly seek to represent the voters of Cabarrus County and work to protect our rights and to help make Cabarrus County a great place to live, work and raise our families.

They are everywhere!

After CCA-PAC succeeds in forcing Fletcher Hartsell into retirement with the introduction of Parish Moffitt, the only creditable and significant replacement for Hartsell, the last minute want-to-be’s came crawling out of the woodwork!

Full field of contenders for NC Senate District 36
Full field of contenders for NC Senate District 36


In District 36, which spans Cabarrus and Union counties, the unexpected last minute “Retirement” announcement of Republican Sen. Fletcher Hartsell has drawn four Republicans who signed up to replace him.

Navy veteran Parish Moffitt, anesthesiologist Scott Aumuller, former Duke Energy state president for North Carolina, Paul Newton, and educator Amy Blake (Lewis), wife of Attorney John Lewis of Concord.

Let’s take a hard look at those running to replace now retiring NC State Senator Fletcher Hartsell.

Parish Moffitt for NC State Senate District 36
Parish Moffitt for NC State Senate District 36

First we have Parish Moffitt, a family man, strong Christian, accomplished former Military man who has worked himself up in the Airlines Industry. A strong Conservative who supports Limited Government, removing regulations that impede business development and growth and is tired of corrupt politicians. A proponent of traditional marriage, gun rights, anti-abortion as evidenced by his stand against Doctors recommendations to abort the birth of his first born. He is a proponent of Teachers and the return of local control of our education system while adamantly opposed to Common Core in North Carolina Schools. A true working class, citizen servant, candidate who believes Government needs to follow the Constitution as written. See more here

Parrish brings to mind a Trump/Cruz type of candidate, a political outsider who tells it like it is and is guaranteed to shake things up because he is not one of the “good ol’ boys” who will just play politics as usual and sell out his constituents.


Dr. Scott Aumuller
Dr. Scott Aumuller

Next we are asked to consider Dr. Scott Aumuller, a practicing Anesthesiology who has been in practice for 30 years. We were unable to find anything online that would help us to understand his reason for running or what his position is on anything. This would leave us asking the WHY question. Someone, virtually unknown, who wants our vote without giving us any insight into why he wants to hold such an important elected position.

Dr. Scott Aumuller is kind of like presidential candidate George Pataki. Who? That’s right. Why is he even running?

Paul Newton
Paul Newton

Third on the list is former Duke Energy state president for North Carolina, Paul Newton. Seriously, a quick search of public records shows Mr. Newton ** (see correction below) has not voted in any North Carolina Elections since 11/3/1987 and is a faithful donor to the Duke Energy Corporation PAC. This might lead us to believe that Mr. Newton is certainly a proponent of Big Business with strong ties to Big Government. We wonder just what his motivations for running may be? There doesn’t appear to be any campaign website with any information as to what his platform or beliefs might be. Again someone asking for our votes without our knowing anything about his motivations or positions on the important issues.

Update 3/3/2016
** Mr. Newton recently contacted CCA-PAC and brought to our attention that the information on his voting record was not accurate and that we must have looked at the record of a different Paul R. Newton. In the spirit of always being truthful and accurate we rechecked our information source and did in fact locate a valid voting history of this Paul R. Newton. His record does show he has consistently voted in Cabarrus County since 1992. We appreciate Mr. Newton reaching out to us and helping us to set the record straight. That we have done. In addition he has asked for a public apology and an retraction. We have considered his request and will be happy to do that when he publically condemns the CJN ads against Rep. Larry Pittman and rejects their support of his candidacy. It’s up to Mr. Newton now!

Paul Newton can be looked at like a Lindsey Graham who is running for reasons that have NOTHING to do with his constituents.

Amy Blake-Lewis
Amy Blake-Lewis

We find ourselves left with educator Amy Blake, wife of Attorney John Lewis of Concord. Ms. Blake (Mrs. Lewis) has close ties to the Hartsell political machine that Cabarrus County has been suffering under for about 25 years. So why would we think for even a skinny minute that she would be anything more than an extension of that machine. She is obviously a member of the Republican Establishment Elite that so many of us are tired of as shown in her own words where she calls herself an ” Educator, moderate politico, Republican Leadership Initiative Fellow.” She is a proponent of Common Core believing that it should be the method of instruction for North Carolina Educators and she is a proponent of Pro Choice group.

Amy Blake-Lewis makes us think of a Jeb Bush type of candidate, continuing the political dynasty of a corrupt GOP Establishment that has only a dismal record of selling out on principles.

For Constitution Supporting Conservatives, at this time there appears to only be one choice as a viable replacement for a Senator who has been forced into retirement because of his actions, the threat of Criminal Prosecution, the opposition of Cabarrus Conservative Alliance – PAC and the voters from right here in Cabarrus County who are tired of the corruption in Raleigh by some of our elected officials.

It’s time to keep the Lawyers and professional big government politicians out of power and empower the people once again by electing Constitution supporting Conservatives into office and then keeping vigilant watch over them, their votes and letting them know what We The People want them to do on our behalf.

We don’t need any more representatives like Fletcher Hartsell who looked 8 Cabarrus County voters in the eye and said ” I have been up here over 20 years, I vote the way I want to and I don’t care what the people back home think!” Fletcher Hartsell, in the hall of the House Office building.

Cabarrus County needs and deserves better, we need a Senator who will listen to the people, who will work for the good of all Cabarrus County Voters and who will use the Constitution and Conservative values and principles as his guide in making the right decisions about governing “For the People”! Cabarrus County needs Parish Moffitt to serve them as their next Senator in the North Carolina General Assembly.

F. Paul Valone says, This is my call for a pact of survival.

Please read this from our friends at Grass Roots North Carolina! It may just help to save not only your life but also that of your family, friends or neighbors!


Gun Rights Supporters:

This isn’t just a fundraising letter. Hell, it isn’t just a call to political action. This is my call for a pact of survival.

Before the bodies in San Bernardino were even cold, the man who can’t be bothered to utter the words “radical Islamic terrorism” made it abundantly clear whom he considers to be the real “threat.”

Yes, in his world ISIS is just a ‘JV team,’ and Barack Hussein Obama considers you, the lawful gun owner, to be the real “terrorist.”

Ignore, for a moment, that BATFE reports the weapons used were purchased legally (as in, with background checks). Never mind that California bans what it claims are “assault weapons.” And forget that, by initial reports, the perpetrators weren’t even on the terrorist watch list.

Set aside even the fact that France’s draconian gun bans failed to keep ISIS from getting fully automatic AK-47s.

Forget all that because they are secondary to the fact that the President of the United States wants to render you defenseless against exactly the animals who want to kill you.

‘…a rifle behind every blade of grass…”

My first request to you is not political, not in the conventional sense. And it is most certainly not a request for money. Instead, I am about to ask you for something far more important, and more dangerous.

In part, I suppose I’m asking for civil disobedience. Excoriate me if you will, but here is what I propose to spread across the entire United States: During World War II, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto said: “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”

I am asking you to stand behind those blades of grass. Frankly, few have the guts to say it, but as demonstrated in France and San Bernardino, even a response just minutes away leaves your loved ones dead in seconds. To stop terrorism, your response must be immediate.

What that means…

Carry concealed everywhere: If you don’t have a permit, get one. If North Carolina’s arcane permit laws prohibit you, get one from another state (which will be valid here). If you need to not drink when you go to a restaurant, then don’t. As for “gun free” businesses and offices, I cannot provide advice but say only that as of December 1, a violation of that statute is no longer a misdemeanor, but only a civil infraction (albeit with a $500 penalty). Yes, full-time carry is a pain in the patoot. But as guru Clint Smith puts it: “Carrying a gun isn’t supposed to be comfortable, it’s supposed to be comforting.”

Train, train, train: Personally, I just took John Farnam’s excellent course, “Armed Response to Terrorism.” Just carrying a gun you aren’t trained for might not provide the benefit we need. Accordingly, in coming weeks we will create a list of North Carolina instructors.

Be prepared to defend innocent lives: Develop the combat mindset. Learn Jeff Cooper’s color code of awareness (and never be “Condition White”). Get books like “Principles of Personal Defense,” or “Warrior Mindset.” Learn John Boyd’s “OODA Loop.”

It is your duty to respond

If you’re like me, whenever Obama or the media start spouting garbage about “gun violence,” I just want to turn off the TV and ignore them.

But you can’t. In fact, it is your duty to defeat those who exploit tragedy to steal your freedom.

Right now, Senators Harry Reid (D-NV) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are scheming to introduce amendments to the a budget bill which exploit San Bernardino to push universal gun registration (under the misnomer “universal background checks”) and to ensure the government could simply deny your ability to buy a gun – without due process – by arbitrarily placing you on the “terrorist watch list.” (And in case you think that’s a good idea, check out “7 Ways That You (Yes, You) Could End Up On A Terrorist Watch List”.)

To stop the impending threat, I need you to do 3 things:

  • Go to www.StopTheGunBan.org: Even if you have already signed the petition, make sure everyone you know signs it too.
  • Contact your US House Rep and both US Senators: Tell them you will not compromise on gun control, and that instead, they should be working to reduce the number of “gun-free” victim disarmament zones like the Inland Regional Center. Contact Senator Thom Tillis HERE or go to: http://www.tillis.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-me. Contact Senator Richard Burr HERE or go to: https://www.burr.senate.gov/contact/email. To identify your representative and get contact info, go HERE or to: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/.
  • Help GRNC stop Obama, Reid and Schumer: Whether the theater of operations is Capitol Hill or the 2016 elections, rest assured the battle for gun rights is very much alive, and we need the resources to fight! Please join or donate to GRNC by CLICKING HERE or going to: http://www.grnc.org/join-grnc/contribute

As always, GRNC will be on the front lines in defending your rights against both the Jihadists who want you dead and the leftists who would enable them.

parish@parish4ncsenate.comPARISH MOFFITT ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR NORTH CAROLINA SENATE DISTRICT-36 SEATCONCORD, NC, December 4, 2015 – With family, friends and supporters at his side, Parish Moffitt formally announced today his candidacy for North Carolina Senate District 36 seat.
In his announcement, Moffitt described his campaign for office and his vision to see a return to government “of, by, and for the People.””I am one of you; one of ‘We the People’,” said Moffitt. “I believe that my life’s experiences, professional attributes, my abilities, skills, political philosophy, and rational understanding of the issues uniquely qualify me to be an authentic representative of the great people of Cabarrus and Union county and position me as the best candidate for the North Carolina Senate in 2016.”Thomas Jefferson said, “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom”. Parish’s long held values of honesty and integrity were instilled into him at an early age and then reinforced while he served in the US NAVY. “There are some that believe a little slip of omission from time to time is acceptable; however, as was engrained into my very fiber these little omissions eventually result in casualties”, said Moffitt.

“I believe that North Carolina, America, and the Republican Party need to recommit to the enduring principles on which America was founded: limited government, free markets, personal liberty, and most importantly personal responsibility,” Moffitt proclaimed. “We need to stop acting like there is shame in holding fast to conservative values and principles! We need new, fresh, honest, and principled leaders who have the courage and conviction to recommit to those principles. We need a Senator whose motivation for seeking elected office is not driven by what’s best for him; but, rather, by the desire to serve the People as a public servant.”

Parish Moffitt is a Flight Deck Captain with PSA Airlines (a subsidiary of American Airlines), a North Carolina Paramedic and Rescue Technician, Serves as the chairman to the Board for a non-profit, is a United States NAVY veteran, and is currently working on a Master’s degree in Public Administration at the University of North Carolina School of Government. Parish and his wife Jacqueline live in Concord. One daughter, Sarah, lives at home with Parish and Jacqueline, and is majoring in Early Education.

The Campaign Lies Begin Early in Cabarrus County

Well that didn’t take long! On day one of the 2016 registration for candidates Michael Fischer, who is supported by the Cabarrus Jobs Now organizers whom you should remember were proven to have sent out printed lies in the last Cabarrus County Commissioners race has kicked off his campaign by spreading lies. Specifically, in this article from the Independent Tribune, December 1, 2015 Michael Fischer made this statement…

“Tuesday Fischer said the $100,000 figure was not accurate. “We’ll raise whatever is necessary to run a competitive successful campaign.”

That statement was in response to the following:

In October, Pittman wrote a letter to the editor stating that Fischer’s supporters, Cabarrus Jobs Now, were trying to raise $100,000 to unseat him. He said the most he had ever raised for a campaign was $40,000 in 2014 and he didn’t spend all of that.

Also for the record here is the letter which Rep. Pittman was referring to. Please pay close attention to the last paragraph.

MichaelFischer letter-smIt clearly states “Michael needs to raise $100,000 before the end of the year… now notice the rest of that sentence about making the race competitive and getting his message out. By now we should all know what that message will be… MORE LIES, just like those put out by the CJN group in the last Cabarrus County Commissioners race.
Here are a couple of reminders in case you forgot about those lies….

CJN Printing Lies about County Commissioners
CJN Printing Lies about County Commissioners


Now in addition to this, you may be asking yourselves why would a successful young attorney with a prestigious law firm in Charlotte decide to take time away from a lucrative six figure career to go to Raleigh for a job that pays less than 1/3 that amount? We will let you answer that question for yourselves.

More importantly we should be asking who is funding him and why?

Look no further than the above letter signed by several of the organizers of the Progressive group Cabarrus Jobs Now. Current Cabarrus County Commissioner Diane Honeycutt, Cyndie Mynatt, daughter of current Commissioner Grace Mynatt, and Hotel Chain owner Doug Stafford.

One would ponder just why are these and a few other influential business people, some who are actually registered Democrats of Cabarrus county supporting Michael Fischer to oppose Representative Larry Pittman who has a very conservative record?

Representative Pittman has shown that he consistently stands strong in support of the voters of Cabarrus County against corruption and waste in Raleigh and has actively worked to help our Teachers, Highway Patrol, and Retired state workers. A representative who has fought tirelessly for our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms (2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution) a man who took the lead in fighting to remove Common Core from our Educational System and who continues to work to reduce the size and intrusion of government into our daily lives and our pocket books.

We must wonder if Mr. Fischer is so willing to saddle up with those who would out and out lie about these things, just what would he be willing to do if he were allowed to go to Raleigh and collude with the corrupt politicians who have taken over the Republican majority as reported in this article by the DailyHaymaker?

The choice is yours, whom do you want representing you in Raleigh? A proven Constitutionally Conservative and honorable man Larry Pittman, or another lawyer supported by an organization which has been proven to be corrupt and willing to outright lie to get their chosen person elected?

Isn’t it time we let our voices be heard and our values properly represented by those whom we elect and send to office on our behalf? Shouldn’t we demand honesty and integrity from our elected representatives? If the answer to these questions is YES then your choice for NC House District 82 Representative should be glaringly clear.
