SWEEPSTAKES PLACES; let’s face it, it’s gambling and when commissioners change the ordinance, they allowed it. Why can some counties and cities band them and we allow them ? Look at what is happening at these places and the new ones in Rockfish.

NORTH CAROLINA: Democrat State Auditor Beth Wood appeared on a radio talk show this week and detailed some serious problems with NC’s Medicaid system, the same one her fellow Democrats are trying to expand. Here’s the killer line: “You just can’t keep putting a bunch of people into a system that is already broken.” The News & Observer
There are several Democrats running for the Superintendent of Public Instruction position in 2020. They recently held a forum and in what is no surprise, all of them are against charter schools and voucher programs. The News & Observer
Speaking of charter schools, the federal government awarded $10 million to the state to help expand charter school opportunities for educationally disadvantaged students. The state may actually have trouble spending the money. Find out why and how that can change. Carolina Journal
WASHINGTON; Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar has been in some hot water over campaign finance problems and lying about marrying her brother. No matter who she married, she’s now filing for divorce and the hole just keeps getting deeper. New York Post
Sen. Elizabeth Warren was a teacher (and a Republican, or at least so she claimed) long before she became a far-left politician. She also claimed that she was fired from her teaching job for being pregnant. Like a lot of things she says, she lied. The Washington Free Beacon
Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke is desperate to get above his 0% polling average and has taken the incredibly radical step to call for stripping the tax-exempt status for churches, colleges, or charities. Not kidding. Washington Examiner
Eric Holder’s Democrat redistricting group has set its sights on North Carolina’s Congressional districts. They’re not interested in fair maps; They’re interested in rigging the system for Democrats. It’s time to stand up for them (and win back the NC Supreme Court). Fox News
