By A.P. Dillon Hello Da Tech Guy readers! It's been several months since I left Da Tech Guy's Magnificent 7 writing team and I wanted to drop in with some political updates from North Carolina. Redistricting Chaos A lawsuit threw North Carolina's districts into chaos just prior to the March 15th primary election. A court struck down … Continue reading Dispatches From The NC Political Scene
By A.P. Dillon It's been just over two years since I joined Da Tech Guy's Magnificent 7 team and I can barely believe how fast the time went. I've written an article a week on topic ranging from exposing far left networks to Obamacare and Common Core to key political races. The time has flown, indeed. Looking … Continue reading Giving Thanks For Two Years At Da Tech Guy Blog
By A.P. Dillon From the instant the news broke there was an attack going on in Paris, I knew it was them. Everyone in the world knew it was them. Whereas I and the rest of the world seem to be able to say the words, Islamic Terrorist', the 2016 Democratic candidates and President Obama refuse to. And this is a … Continue reading The Fed has Written A Suicide Note for the States
By A.P. Dillon There are a lot of stories running about the latest GOP debate, this is not one of them. Well, not really. I want to talk about when snowflakes melt. Everyone knows snowflakes melt. Temperatures change and ice turns to water. This is a basic truth. Even the littlest child knows this - most … Continue reading When Snowflakes Melt
By A.P. Dillon Recently Billionaire Bill Gates made some comments on Climate change and 'saving the planet'. The comments were, shall we say, the kind of dumb we've come to expect from someone who thinks that because they are rich and famous, that their mess doesn't stink. We see this type of 'my mess doesn't stink' … Continue reading Capitalist Bill Gates: Socialism Will Save Us!
By A.P. Dillon If it looks like a political stunt and smells like a political stunt, then it stands to reason it is a political stunt. President Obama's big shift in rhetoric on testing this past week comes at a politically convenient time. In a total course reversal, Obama wants a cap that limits the testing on … Continue reading Obama’s ‘Testing Cap’ Comes At Convenient Political Moment
By A.P. Dillon Hillary was in front of the Benghazi panel. Her avowed enemies sat on the other side, asking the questions. But what difference does it make? As we saw with the first Democrat debate, there was a lot of yelling, socialism and talk of 'free stuff'. I'm going to go ahead and say the … Continue reading Webb Out, Biden Out and What Difference Does It Make
By A.P. Dillon This past Tuesday was the first 2016 Democrat Candidate debate. It was held on CNN and was conveniently moderated by Clinton Global Initiative member, Anderson Cooper. Clinton and Sanders had the most talking time. Gee. To summarize the debate, there was a lot of yelling, socialism, talk of 'free stuff' and more yelling. … Continue reading First Democrat Debate Featured Yelling, Socialism and ‘Free Stuff’
By A.P. Dillon Back in April, I took a look at the 2016 GOP challengers for a few districts in North Carolina. Today I'd like to zero in on one in particular. North Carolina's 2nd House Congressional District is currently occupied by Renee Ellmers, who defeated Democrat incumbent, Bob Etheridge, in the 2010 election. During the 2010, Ellmers was … Continue reading NC’s Rep. Ellmers Seeing Multiple Challengers – and For Good Reasons.
By A.P. Dillon Yesterday at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, the Planned Parenthood mask of 'women's healthcare' fell. Hearing Key Points & Other Relevant Information Despite NY Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney's attempt to rescue Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards during the proceedings, it was made clear that the group does not do mammograms. Richards herself stated that to … Continue reading The ‘Women’s Healthcare’ Mask Falls at Planned Parenthood Hearing
By A.P. Dillon The ability to reason and think for one's self in this country has been lost. Apparently, Kiss Cams are now considered inappropriate at Syracuse University: The kiss cam did not operate during Saturday's game between the Orange and Central Michigan University following a letter to the editor published Friday on Syracuse.com questioning its appropriateness at … Continue reading Now Banned: Kiss Cams?
By A.P. Dillon Just last week, I was delving into the politically correct, First Amendment violating battlefields we call college campuses. This week, we have President Obama condemning the 'coddling' of our college kids. Washington Free Beacon captured the meat of Obama's comments: “Sometimes there are folks on college campuses who are liberal, and maybe even … Continue reading ‘New Tone’ POTUS who defines 25 YO’s as Kids condemns ‘Coddling’
By A.P. Dillon College campuses, which should be environments that foster difference of opinion, have become increasingly restrictive when it comes to free speech. It's gotten so bad that apparently, at some colleges, the First Amendment is almost non-existent or at least ignored. At the end of August, The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) … Continue reading The Assault on Free Speech on College Campuses
By A.P. Dillon In the August dump of Hillary Clinton's emails, a number of interesting items came to light as media outlets began sifting through them. There was a lot more in there than expected, from obsessing over Sarah Palin to 'Vast Right Wing Conspiracies' and recruiting State Department employees to steer funds towards a Clinton Foundation … Continue reading Clinton Emails Mention New America Foundation
By A.P. Dillon For many parents engaged in the fight against Common Core, discovering the level of control the federal government has over your child's education has likely been an ulcer inducing adventure and a disturbing eye-opener. The deeper I got into the weeds investigating the overlapping tentacles of Common Core, the more I realized that … Continue reading You Will Be Made To Care – Fed Ed Edition
By A.P. Dillon As I tried to write this article, I was alternating between my computer screen and watching my two children playing with their LEGO's. I had to watch them after what I just saw. I had to cleanse my mind of lives that will never be, ended in the most horrific ways imaginable. I sat there … Continue reading My Horror At “Something kind of cool”
By A.P. Dillon The first Republican debate was more entertaining than it had a right to be. While a historic number of people watched it, they were likely doing so to see what came out of Trump's mouth next. Those folks were probably not disappointed. I was watching for how the candidates reacted to a few key … Continue reading Rubio On Education Puts Jeb To Shame – #Election2016
By A.P. Dillon In political races, fence riding by candidates is a given. Hillary Clinton has been the mother of all fence riders so far, but her two videos that dropped on the same day earlier this week go beyond fence riding. On her campaign site, Clinton launched "Dorothy". It's an old timey flash back to … Continue reading Hillary’s Videos Have Appalling Mixed Message
By A.P. Dillon I have the distinct feeling most of us are witnessing a political version of whack-a-mole. However, in this case, it's now wack0-birds in place of the moles. Recently, Donald Trump gave out Lindsey Graham's cell phone number at a public event. Lindsey Graham took a whack back at Trump for 'selling fear and prejudice'. … Continue reading Playing Whack A Mole With Wacko Birds
By A.P. Dillon A few weeks ago, I wrote about the new HUD rule, Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH): This rule is basically forced economic integration. It’s making sure everyone gets their ‘fair share’ — or in this case, their fair house as determined by HUD. This is the federal government engaged in social engineering, the consequences of … Continue reading Big Brother For Social Justice
