"She's a Whack Job!" said the sociopaths.

[This is the 3rd in a Series I've written for OpEdNews on sociopaths and the consequences that their behavior has in the world of politics for the other 96% of us ordinary folks. Links to the other 2 are found by clicking on my list of other Articles, below. I've been away from posting Articles, doing field research on one of the most outrageous examples I've personally witnessed. Report on results of this study is published here.]


Raleigh NC , January 31st.  The State Executive Committee of the NC Democratic Party held one of its semi-annual meetings with the primary purpose of electing new Officers for the coming 2 years. NC became  pale blue  in Election 2008 after decades of being a solid  Southern  Red  State . The SEC is composed of some 700 Members, selected from each of 100 County Parties, plus other Public Officials, Democrats elected in 2008.


Pale Blue , because Obama took NC by only 14,177 votes out of 4.3 million ballots cast in the Presidential Election. The NC Democratic Party, while loudly claiming it caused this Victory, in fact, did not cause it. Many Counties went for McPain, and it was only because the Obama Campaign opened 50 Offices across NC, brought in its own organizers, and spent millions of dollars on TV ads and bringing Obama to NC numerous times that NC barely squeaked into the  Blue  column. If the NC Party doesn't get its act together in time for 2010 when Republican Richard Burr is up for re-election to the US Senate, NC may slip back into  Red , and stay there when Obama runs again in 2012.


NC began moving from solidly  Blue  into  Red  when Jesse Helms was elected to the US Senate in 1972, using money raised for the first time from CONservatives outside the State. His Congressional Club, as a forerunner for what has become standard in American Politics, is documented here:  A Plan for Democracy Restoration  . Jesse was returned to the Senate for 30 years, even though hardly a Bill he introduced ever passed. Using a controlled mixture of big money and fear of lib-ruls, Jesse ignored a miniscule and ineffective State Republican Party, concentrating instead on attracting moderate and conservative Democrats to elect him again and again, largely from Eastern NC tobacco farmers. 


It wasn't Jesse's brilliance that worked for him. It was the stupidity and lack of leadership in the Democratic Party that kept Jesse in the Senate. That same lack of leadership is alive and well today, as evidenced by what happened on Sat, Jan 31st, where lib-ruals, redefined as  Progressives , vented their bile.



The Outgoing NC Democratic Party lawyer Chair had 4 years to turn NC  Blue . He nearly blew it and left as his legacy a wounded and divided Party. On his last day in Office, the Party Chair sat back and watched his handiwork in action, smiling and content that he would succeed.


This all began many months ago, when the State Chair set in motion a Plan to permanently frighten anyone who ever went up against him and his minions. Rather than re-write this all over again, below I'm posting a Newsletter that went out to thousands of Democrats statewide, two days after Black Saturday. Here it is, exactly as published by the NC Democrats Network, except that I removed the names of all persons involved. Following this is another satirical piece of writing which I sent myself to a similar network of NC Democrats two days later.


This will necessarily be the longest Article I've posted on OpEdNews, but if you wade through it, you will thoroughly understand what a disservice this group of unelected, self-appointed  Progressives  have done in NC, and which Progressive Democrats of America appears to be using as a model to promote more of the same across our Nation.
