Supply the Speaker of the House with a lobbying contract and a cut of your real estate investment, and you too can ensure the legislature forces the local municipality to run sewer to your real estate investment.

Any thoughts on this bill?

https://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2017/Bills/House/PDF/H1117v0.pdf

Quote :
"At the first meeting in July annually, the county boards shall organize by electing one of its members chair and one of its members vice-chair, each to serve a one-year term as such. In the odd-numbered year, the chair shall be a member of the political party with the highest number of registered affiliates, as reflected by the latest registration statistics published by the State Board, and the vice-chair a member of the political party with the second highest number of registered affiliates. In the even-numbered year, the chair shall be a member of the political party with the second highest number of registered affiliates, as reflected by the latest registration statistics published by the State Board, and the vice-chair a member of the political party with the highest number of registered affiliates."


Current total voter registration statistics:

Democratic: 2,694,556
Republican: 2,119,956

I refuse to believe that Meadows is the only person stupid enough, (or the only true believer left, take your pick) to take the job. No one in congress is so unsavvy as to think being Trump’s COS is a good career move.

So I have to think there are reasons beyond the obvious, and my post in the “true conspiracies” thread, I think, is one explanation:

Quote :
"research:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_H._Taylor
[quote]Starting in the mid-1990s, Charles Taylor began financing small businesses in and around Ivanovo, an industrial city of almost 500,000, about 150 miles (240 km) northeast of Moscow. In 2003, Taylor purchased the Commercial Bank of Ivanovo with a Russian partner, Boris Bolshakov, a former KGB colonel and Supreme Soviet deputy,[6] and Bolshakov's wife Marina.[8] Taylor owns 80 percent of the bank as well as Columbus, a Russian investment company.[16]

So one of the biggest local financiers of real estate transactions in Transylvania and Jackson Counties is Blue Ridge Savings Bank, owned by Taylor, and one of the biggest real estate brokers is Highland Properties, Part owned by Meadows.

The conspiracy goes:
So Russian blood money -> laundered to another bank -> laundered into overpriced real estate markets (see Highlands/Sapphire NC) -> Meadows gets outrageous commissions.


Just like Donald J Trump and Deutche bank."



Meadows needs to be close to Trump to help in Meadows coming criminal defense, or to earn a pardon, etc. It’s why Meadows has been one of the ring leaders insinuating Mueller has committed some sort of investigatory malpractice with no evidence and despite not being on any of the cmtes investigating. There is definitely more here.

I was thinking how inauthentic Mark Harris seemed when I reached this quote:

Quote :
"'It's really just authenticity,' said Connelly. 'I think a large reasons the Hillary [Clintons] of the world lose is they come across as inauthentic. And I think Mark is the real deal.'"

Quote :
"This afternoon, for what I’m sure are reasons that sounded good in his head, [Tim] Moore sent Trump a letter inviting him to deliver his State of the Union address in North Carolina...
..
..
"It is my sincere pleasure as the Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives to invite you to deliver your second State of the Union Address in our chamber of this state’s General Assembly. …

I also believe taking your message outside of the nation’s gilded capital to a state government venue reflects the priorities of your administration, and those of our Congress, to create success not only for federal institutions and programs but for the American people they serve.

North Carolina, like Washington D.C., has a balanced government that provides opportunity for all voices to be heard through dialogue rather than division. Our rapidly growing state is one of the 10 most populous in the nation and a welcoming place for all, including more than a million active-duty members of the military and brave veterans.

During this critical period for leaders of our country to listen to one another, reach compromises on disagreements, and resolve to work together to reopen our nation’s government, it is essential that citizens of the United States hear directly from their elected President on these efforts."

So Mark Harris’s own son may have implicated his dad in wrong doing during his testimony today?

Got damn!


(I use “may have” because we don’t have a smoking gun that pegs Mark Harris yet, there is just a shit load of smoke.)

His son definitely busted apart the defense that he had no previous warning or knowledge of potential wrongdoing.

Mark Harris: "Obviously, I read these emails today in a very different, intellectual light than when I read them, when my 27-year-old son, who is a sharp attorney ... But I'm his dad and I know he's a little judgmental, and has a little taste of arrogance, and some other things,"

You can't trust him, he's 27. Just a kid. And the arrogance. The arrogance.

Any thoughts on why the GOP would support this gerrymandering reform bill?

https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article226578184.html

John Hood, who works with Art Pope, noted the following:

Quote :
"However, [this story] gets a key detail wrong: the FAIR Act does NOT put an 'outside commission' in charge of drawing maps. It's a different model that combines strict, neutral criteria placed in the North Carolina constitution by a public referendum with a staff-driven model for actually drawing maps. The legislative staff would draw congressional and legislative district maps, an advisory commission would answer staff questions and host public hearings on the maps, and then the NC legislature would vote them up or down. It's a fair and carefully balanced approach that ought to reassure politicians and voters across the spectrum."

No way that survives an appeal. The implications of a judge being able to throw out entire legislative sessions for multiple years are ust too much

Edit: i just saw the link at the top of this page where tillis admitted that man was contributing to climate change... maybe he has turned into a democrat?
