Soros NC Supreme Court Candidate.. YOU MUST VOTE for Barbara Jackson. Vote these conservative judges too ...
Soros wants to solidify his influence in North Carolina's Supreme Court through his support for supreme court candidate Anita Earls, executive director of the Southern Coalition for Social Justice. Founded by Earls in 2007, SCSJ has partnered with openly antisemitic organizations and individuals in Durham such as the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions group Spirithouse Durham. Since 2010, Soros' Open Society has made considerable investments in SCSJ to control the city's criminal justice system.
Read the full op-ed here. There's only one way to prevent a far-left activist like Anita Earls getting on the NC Supreme Court: vote for Barbara Jackson, Jefferson Griffin, Andrew Heath, Chuck Kitchen .

More Buncombe Mess from Dimms
ATPAC on John Boyle's Sunday AC-T article Hey Democratic commissioners, stop saying stupid stuff
Bravo, John Boyle. Might I remind your readers that there were many of us who opposed the A B Tech tax for exactly the reasons the money has gone missing. There was never any stipulation on exactly how the money would be spent which meant that the tax money could be wasted - which it is! Wise up Buncombe!
Angry Buncombe Taxpayers say Stop the Theft and Corruption. Drain the Swamp in Buncombe County. Vote Republican November 6th.
Time for a drastic change.
The movement is growing and growing 🙂
REPORT: Deal In Place Aimed At Preventing4,000 (Now up to 7,000) _ Person Caravan From Reaching America. Thank you #POTUS!
Wayne Dupree Show: In over a week, the caravan started with 2K and has risen to 7K marching toward our southern border to cross over for benefits and education. I doubt any voter will object to Trump closing the border, deploying troops to secure it.
So what added to this ... Dropping ˜Zero Tolerance Signaled Open Door for Illegal Immigrants

In Case You Missed It!
SIX CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS- YES !
This is the best summary, I have come across. These are listed in the order they will appear on the ballot.
Amendment 1 - Right to Hunt and Fish - YES
What the ballot will say; "Constitutional amendment protecting the right of the people to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife."
Protects North Carolinians' right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife using traditional methods. If passed, NC will be the 23rd state to adopt such an amendment. We are experiencing intense urbanization from areas that are unfamiliar with our hunting and fishing traditions, with seeing trucks with guns in their rear window, or observing citizens walking along a roadside carrying a firearm, and they are offended by these types of traditions. This amendment ensures for future generations that these types of actions are normal and that they remain part of our heritage.
Amendment 2 - Victims' Bill of Rights - YES
What the ballot will say; "Constitutional amendment to strengthen protections for victims of crime; to establish certain absolute basic rights for victims, and to ensure the enforcement of these rights."
So many times victims of crimes do not receive notice of their hearings, nor are they included in pleas or sentencing. This amendment ensures that victims of crimes have rights, as do criminals.
Amendment 3 - Income Tax Cap - YES
What the ballot will say: "Constitutional amendment to reduce the income tax rate in North Carolina to a maximum allowable rate of seven percent (7%)"
Currently, our constitution caps the income tax rate at 10%. This amendment will help ensure that North Carolinian's can keep more of their hard earned money by insisting that future legislators and governors meet our fundamental government needs and sustain fiscally responsible budgets.
Amendment 4 - Voter Photo ID -YES
What the ballot will say: "Constitutional amendment to require voters to provide identification before voting in person."
Like 38 other states, this is needed to protect our citizens' vote and the integrity of our state's election process.
Amendment 5 - Judicial Vacancy Appointments -YES
What the ballot will say: "Constitutional amendment to change the process for filling judicial vacancies that occur between judicial elections from a process in which the Governor has sole appointment power to a process in which the people of the State nominate individuals to fill vacancies by way of a commission comprised of appointees made by the judicial, executive, and legislative branches charged with making recommendations to the legislature as to which nominees are deemed qualified; then the legislature will recommend at least two nominees to the Governor via legislative action not subject to gubernatorial veto; and the Governor will appoint judges from among these nominees."
Currently, in NC, the de facto method to fill judicial vacancies is that only one person, the governor, will make decisions that ordinarily would be left up to the people. History tells us that about 40% of all judges in our state might be seated by only one individual over two gubernatorial terms, and that horrific practices have taken place by both political parties. This amendment will reduce the number of positions that are vacated early and will create a broader and more inclusive body to fill vacated judicial positions.
Amendment 6 - Bipartisan Board of Ethics and Elections -YES
What the ballot will say: "Constitutional amendment to establish an eight-member Bipartisan Board of Ethics and Elections Enforcement in the Constitution to administer ethics and elections law."
It is simply not right that this board currently is controlled by one person who could and has come under ethical scrutiny on which the board must rule. This amendment instead would create an eight-member bipartisan board much like Federal Elections Commission to administer ethics and election laws that would be free of the influence of any political party or branch of government. Nominations will come from the leaders in both the majority and minority parties of the legislature.

You will now have party affiliation associated with each judge. This will be a key piece of data that has never been available on a ballot before. There are two judge races where some inside knowledge would be some help because there are 3 judges on the ballot, but you can only vote for one. These two votes are critical for the integrity of the NC Supreme Court.
- NC Supreme Court - Seat 1 -Jackson (yes)
NC Appeals Court - Seat 1 - Andrew Heath (yes)
- NC Appeals Court - Seat 2 - Jefferson G. Griffin (yes)
NC Appeals Court - Seat 3 - Chuck Kitchen (yes)
(The other judge races are easier to figure out with party affiliation now available.)
