Masked school board
fails to conceal agenda

The Moore County School Board meets tonight, October 12, to rubber stamp a recommendation by Superintendent Robert Grimesey to keep students and teachers masked until November.

While masking of children is abusive, it does not deter spread of the Wuhan virus. Said virus poses no health threats to children, while masking is damaging to mental health.

Even The New York Times, for 18 months staunchly on the side of lockdowns, masks, vaccine mandates and overall pandemic hysteria, finally allowed a reporter to do some research.

"The more encouraging half of the story is on the other end of the age spectrum," writes David Leonhardt. "For children without a serious medical condition, the danger of severe Covid is so low as to be difficult to quantify (emphasis added). For children with such a condition, the danger is higher but still lower than many people believe. The risk of long Covid among children -- a source of fear among many parents -- also appears to be very low."

Yet, the Moore school board fixates on masks to divert attention from its broader agenda -- pursuit of aggressive surveying of school children via a third-party data mining platform, Panorama, to whom it is under contract.

Oh, what a web they weave. Meanwhile, the board issued a single-spaced, two-page memo warning citizens that their attendance at the meeting is subject to wide ranging protocols and "rules of order and decorum". Armed guards will remain on duty. You must march to your cars immediately after adjournment. In other words, check your First Amendment rights at the door. Sign up to make a public comment beginning at 5:45 tonight.
GOP Men's Club welcomes Little

How the GOP seized Moore County in '80s

George Little was present for the revolution in the 1980s when the Republican Party began making inroads across Moore County.

Little shares his memories through the decades during a keynote speech during the Oct. 21 Men's Club luncheon beginning at noon at The Country Club of North Carolina.

NC's Hudson, others in GOP
hands tied by Dem scheme

Legislative sausage making sometimes resembles chess (with latex gloves). The latest example whipped Republicans nationwide into fury after 135 GOP members of the U.S. House apparently voted for a provision that would allow guns to be confiscated from members of the military.

But the provision deliberately was inserted into the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which is the vehicle that funds our military.

Among the 135 Republicans who voted to pass the NDAA and send it to the U.S. Senate was Rep. Richard Hudson (NC-8), whose district includes a large swath of Fort Bragg. Here is the back story:
On September 20, Hudson was party to a press release demanding the "red flag" gun grab provision be removed from the pending legislation.

It urged "full removal of a 'red flag' provision in H.R. 4350 (NDAA) during the conference committee process. 
"The letter expresses deep concern that if Sec. 529 of the NDAA were to be enacted, the Second Amendment rights of U.S. military servicemembers would be violated by allowing military judges and magistrates to issue military court gun confiscation orders. Such orders could be issued on an ex parte basis, without the servicemember even being present in court to defend themselves."
Now what? Hudson and other Republicans will await the bill's Senate version to pass, at which time it returns to the House. Hudson and his surrogates are assuring Republican voters, including Moore County's party leadership, that the "red flag" provision never will survive final negotiations ahead of the NDAA's eventual passage.
Susan Hicks will not seek
re-election as court clerk

In a letter issued by email on October 12, Susan Hicks made an announcement:

In 2009 I was given one of the greatest honors of my life. You chose to put your trust in me. You helped me achieve a dream of being appointed then elected to be the Clerk of Superior Court for Moore County. 

Through your continued support and confidence, the Moore County Clerk’s Office maintained the long-standing reputation as one of the top clerk’s offices in the State. 

Having progressed from typewriter and carbon paper days to the computer and printer age, including now e-filing, and going “paperless”, it was my desire to leave in place a system, and a core team of people who can easily adapt to the rigors of a growing county, challenging times, and continued progress we are sure to face in the future. I humbly submit we have achieved these goals. 
Therefore, it is with the deepest gratitude for all the love and support many of you have given me over these many years that I announce my coming retirement as Moore County Clerk of Court. 

I will not be seeking re-election to this office. I do say this with some sadness as I will no doubt miss all the wonderful people and the relationships with which I have been deeply blessed.  I also must confess that I have a real sense of joy in that I know that the time has come, as it always does, to pass the torch to the next generation, and I am looking forward to starting my next chapter.

Voter registration is
never out of season

Consider these compelling data points provided by the North Carolina Republican Party
  • Registering people to vote is a core component of the North Carolina Republican Party’s mission. 
  • Since November 8th 2016 there have been 1.8 million new voters in North Carolina these new voters make up 25% of the states total electorate
  • Currently there are 2.17 Million Republican Voters in North Carolina, while simultaneously there are 2.42 million Unaffiliated voters. This means over one third of North Carolina’s population is made up of unaffiliated voters. Voter Registration allows us to target those unaffiliated voters!
  • Through Voter Registration we’re growing the Republican Party. 
  • Newly registered voters are more likely to vote AND volunteer for the campaign. 
  • Voter Drives are an excellent way to stay proactive with your local county base!

Odierno passes away at 67

Retired Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, a Pinehurst resident who served as the 38th chief of staff for the U.S. Army, died Friday following a “brave battle with cancer," according to his family. He was 67.

Odierno, a 1976 graduate of West Point, became the Army’s 38th chief of staff in September 2011.

Odierno commanded at every level, from platoon to theater, serving in Germany, Albania, Kuwait, Iraq and the United States. He led the 4th Infantry Division and III Corps in Iraq, served more than 50 months in country, was key in executing the surge of forces in 2007 and served as the top U.S. commander there.

Parallels abound between
1956 coercion report, 2021

It is no coincidence that every method analyzed and categorized in Biderman’s 1956 Chart of Coercion (imposed on prisoners of war) has been used in varying degrees to impose public health measures in the age of the (Wuhan) coronavirus.

Isolation of entire populations over the past year has “deprived people of all social support and of their ability to resist.”

Monopolization of perception in the age of corona has caused people to affix their attention upon the “immediate predicament” and to “frustrate all actions not consistent with compliance.” (Source: The Jerusalem Post)

"In modern society, our predisposition toward fear is largely maladaptive. Your chances of being chased by a bear are minimal. In fact, your chances of dying from unnatural causes have never been lower. The world has never been safer. With COVID-19, though, we are constantly fed the life or death narrative. The message from the government and MSM is clear: 'If you enjoy living, then listen to those in power. If instead you enjoy dying, then, by all means, do your own thing'."

"The commonsense reality is that by incentivizing and facilitating illegal immigration (at the Southern border), the Biden administration is making it easier for drugs to pour into the U.S., for human trafficking to expand, and for criminal aliens to infiltrate our society."

School board watch

Observations by Moore County school board member David Hensley:

To solve long standing problems, we must ensure we understand the true cause of the issues and not rely upon trendy theories driven by the leftist legacy media, the Democrats and other activists.

In fact, NC General Statute § 115C-105.27 (Development and approval of school improvement plans) requires all school in NC to, at least over two years, “(i) analyze student data and identify root causes for problems”

In (a October 5) school improvement work session, I rejected the notion of "bias" by Moore County Schools faculty and staff as the “root cause” of disparity in outcomes and suggested other environmental issues as being a major reason certain groups of children perform poorly in school.
Recently, I ran across (a report at about the affects of single parenthood on poverty (it is the single largest indicator of poverty and single parents are five times more likely to live in poverty) and the rates of single parenthood broken down by racial subgroup. Read more.

Not surprisingly, the rate of single parent households presented in the article directly correlates how those subgroups perform in our Moore County Schools.

I would ask administrators and central senior staff to make sure they truly understand the root causes of poor academic performance by subgroups before implementing trendy programs and/or before blaming teachers and staff of "bias" as the root cause of disparate outcomes.
