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.

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.

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.

ROFL

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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.
