Much has happened this week in the North Carolina State Legislature and Col. Brenda Formo has covered it all. Katy’s Conservative Corner cannot thank her enough for her dedication and oversight to conservative causes.
This report helps many plan their legislative activities and know when to contact their elected officials. Formo had a distinguished career in the United States Army and we thank her for her service to our nation.
Writing on behalf of the North Carolina Federation of Republican Women, Mrs. Formo is the State Vice-President of the Central Region. To find out how to join a Republican Women’s Club near you, please contact Valerie White.
On the 51st anniversary of the Greensboro sit-ins, an instrumental moment in the North Carolina civil rights movement, those supporting the DREAM legislation plan to hold vigils. Illegal immigrants and their supporters are trying to hitch their wagons to the star of the black civil rights movement, a shameful act.
What those brave young people did in Greensboro, so many years ago, should not be considered in the same league with people who have entered the United States illegally.
It is possible to enter the U.S. LEGALLY from Mexico, but it takes time and patience. KCC encourages those people to stand and fight their corrupt government, rather than flee here.
These “dreamers” want access to to North Carolina colleges and universities without being taxpaying citizens, despite their criminal status. They also oppose State House Bill 11, which would prevent illegal aliens from entering North Carolina community colleges and public universities.
Sponsored by state Rep. George Cleveland (R-Onslow), the bill would prevent admission to aliens not lawfully present in the United States.
Cleveland is serving his forth term in the state house and is widely respected as one of its most conservative members. He is not afraid to stand alone in the face of compromise and this time, the Dreamers are likely out-of-luck. Officially they are criminals, and as such, this nation owes them nothing.
KCC lived in Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico). She saw families living on rooftops in squalor and can understand their desire to flee those conditions. No one wants to live like that. But one must stand up and rally others for change in their own government, instead of coming here.
In other nations, many think the streets in the U.S. are literally paved with gold and that they deserve to be assisted by the U.S. government. While, that would be nice in a dream world, these people do not understand that we have our own deeply rooted budgetary problems. We must internally solve them before we can help anyone else.
Dream act will become a nightmare for illegals this session, in the North Carolina General Assembly.
The degree to which the liberals in Wake County, North Carolina, and now our nation have sunk regarding the Wake County school board, is appaling. After so-called comedian Steven Colbert disrespected conservative John Tedesco on his show this week, your blogger could no long remain silent.
Tedesco is one of the majority conservatives backed by the Wake County Republican Party (not the tea party, as Colbert stated) that won election in 2009. Everyone with a mouth seems to be weighing in on this one, including our illustrious Gov. Beverly Perdue. (By the way, if she was ever a teacher, we cannot find any record of it.)
This is a COUNTY issue and Tedesco and company have been working to restore community schools and removing forced busing. That means no more long bus rides for students at any Wake County school, blacks or whites.
The NAACP has cried “racism” at every turn, and their leader, the Rev. William Barber, somehow believes that conservatives are trying to end “diversity” that previously existed. Sadly, blacks are falling for this folly, not realizing it is in their best interest to attend schools closest to their homes. Without long bus rides, black student are more likely to have parents involved in their education, after school activities, and over-all well-being.
The NAACP is actually doing its own members in Wake County a huge disservice. They automatically assume that black students MUST attend schools with white children to be successful. This is essentially saying that black kids cannot suceed without white children, which we know is completely untrue. We have all seen many black students rise above their circumstances to become productive and leading Americans.
Felice Pate, an African-American, frequent critic of Barber and the President of the Wake County Republican Women’s Club, said that the NAACP’s stance is wrong. She added that all the gains made by blacks before integration are being negated by the NAACP’s actions.
Tedesco does not deserve what has happened to him personally and the liberals are trying to destroy him and make him quit. But this blogger doesn’t think there is any “quit” in John Tedesco. After raising younger siblings as his own foster children, he went on to lead a Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization, where he raised a great deal of money for them. However, after Tedesco was elected, county liberals threatened to withhold funding if he was not fired. To save the organization he loved best, Tedesco resigned. Fast forward two years.
Now, with no job and limited prospects on the horizon, he continues on. The Raleigh News and Observer proved to be the most classless “news” paper in the state by printing non-facts regarding how Tedesco fell behind on his mortgage payments and is now facing foreclosure. WRAL-TV also ran a story on the foreclosure. Columnist Barry Saunders also has a hit piece in today’s N&O regarding the issue.
Susan Bryant, chairwoman of the Wake County Republican Party has issued this following statement:
Yesterday, WRAL-TV ran a story in which they disclosed that School Board member John Tedesco was facing foreclosure on his house. When a member of the Wake County Republican Executive committee emailed them to complain, they replied that John’s “…financial acumen and ability to balance a budget will be an important factor in his ability to fulfill the role the people selected him for.”
At the time he was elected to the School Board, John Tedesco worked for a non-profit organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters. After he was elected, the liberals threatened to cut off funding for the organization unless he was fired. John cared more for the well-being of the at-risk children the organization served, than for his own livelihood and so he resigned his position. As a result, he fell behind in his mortgage payments and now faces foreclosure. The liberals, like those that run WRAL, then compound the tragedy by accusing him of fiscal mismanagement. That is shameful and disgusting. It is beyond hypocrisy, it is character assassination of the vilest form.
Today is John’s birthday. He lost his job because he was doing what we elected him to do. Why not show him your support by sending him a birthday card and gift to let him know how much we appreciate his sacrifice, and help him when he needs it the most.
Send the card and gift to:

Racist Rep. Loretta Sanchez Bashes GOP/Vietnamese for Trying to Steal “Their” Congressional Seat (video)
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D-CA, 47) may have just buried herself in a big hole. She unleashed a racist attack on her GOP challenger of Vietnamese heritage. In the Univision broadcast, she told Latinos that the Republicans and Vietnamese ”are trying to take this seat away from us”. (Dog gone it, after all we’ve done for our community.)
By the way, she’s blaming the fact that she’s fallen a couple of points behind in the polls on President Obama. Sounds familiar!
On a personal note: Your blogger married into a Vietnamese family and has found them more hard working than any other immigrant group. In general, they are kinder, more friendly, and appreciate this country more than any native born American ever has. Many of them risked their lives escaping an oppressive Communist regime, often on a tiny boat that was robbed by pirates before reaching its destination.
People perished, desperately seeking freedom, yet they fought onward. Generally, they support immigration, LEGAL immigration. So in a way, Rep. Sanchez was wrong, they DO support immigration, just not the kind of mass border crossings that she seeks.
Thank goodness the district is home to a large Asian population in Southern California. Your blogger hopes they all come out and defeat Rep. Sanchez. As one commenter on You Tube stated, “let her return to Mexico where she can serve in the Mexican government.”
Sanchez is the daughter of Mexican immigrants and was born in the United States. It is past time that we retired her from Congress. Your blogger lived in Guadalajara, Mexico in 1990, after graduation from college. She has no issues with Latinos, in general.
Watch and be amazed:
With today being the 46th anniversary of the signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, author Ron Miller has written an excellent piece “From Justice To Joke: The Fall of the NAACP” published on Red County. KCC is a former contributor to Red County.
Miller lays out how the NAACP might have once been a good thing, but how today they are a shadow of their former selves. He also makes fun of national NAACP president, Ben Jealous, for praising the late U.S. Senator Robert (KKK) Byrd (D-WVa), who passed just days before this anniversary.
It’s the Democrats who cling to their racist past, not Republicans, who have been trying to tear down racism for over 100 years.
Cain’s rocking style was interesting, inspiring, and exciting. He had the crowd on their feet cheering and shouting in his afternoon speech that was carried live on C-Span on Friday afternoon, August 27, 2010.
Your blogger also has video of a private chat Cain held with the bloggers at the Dream Conference, shortly after the above talk. KCC hopes to have it online later this afternoon or early evening. It goes more into detail of Cain’s plan, should he run.
challenging their death sentences on the basis of racial bias, the first test of a ground-breaking law passed last year by the state legislature that allows inmates to challenge their sentences on the basis of race.
Thanks to our liberal NC General Assembly, the criminals on Death Row here, can challenge their death sentences based purely on race. Further, North Carolina is only one of two states with this law.
Your blogger, is frankly tired of the race card. As she frequently states in her comments to News and Observer articles,
Only racists still care about race and use the race card.
Meanwhile, the News and Observer states that the law allows defendents in death penalty cases and death penalty inmates to
to challenge prosecutions on grounds of bias. It also allows judges to consider statistics and trends of racial disparities in death sentences to change a death sentence to life in prison without parole or to stop prosecutors from seeking capital punishment at the outset.
More challenges from other death row inmates are expected soon with this troubling criminals rights law.
Your blogger wonders, what about the victims? What about the juries who carefully considered the facts in the case? Are they really that biased? What about the judges?
This is just one more reason why we need to vote out the liberals (Democrats) in the North Carolina General Assembly in November.
Please don’t sit home on election day. Early voting starts in October and every vote counts. Every Democrat is vulnerable this year and conservatives can take advantage of that to overturn some of these horrible laws. Check with your local elections board to see when early voting begins in your county.
