Re: “The Morning Roundup: Donald Trump’s Campaign Swears Donald Trump Is No Longer a Racist Birther, and We Totally Believe Them

Karen - the "birther movement" was started by Hillary supporters. There is no record that Clinton or anyone in her campaign ever advanced the allegation that Obama was not born in the US. No journalist has found a connection between the birther movement and Hillary or her campaign.

The certificate is real, the vetting was done.

FactCheck has more information, as well as do many *reputable* news outlets.

When faced with two bad choices, it is best to be well-informed and able to tell fact from fiction before blindly dismissing an entire party over... misinformation.

Perhaps the person living there has a day job? Would that be so out of the ordinary for a working person?

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Donald Trump’s Campaign Swears Donald Trump Is No Longer a Racist Birther, and We Totally Believe Them

Since I can't post a source, You can google Hillary's 2008 run and find she did , in fact, bring Obama's birth place into question. Secondly, just because someone insists on proof of birth place, especially of someone seeking to be the leader of our nation, does NOT make him racist. I am so sick of the liberal left trying to make EVERYTHING an issue of race. Asking for proof of your birth place has nothing to do with racism and is actually a reasonable and necessary request for political positions. Lastly, the birth certificate that was submitted by Obama was suspect and several experts found evidence of forgery that the powers that be choose to ignore. There was never an official, thorough investigation, yet unofficial investigations have found ties to Kenya and members of Obama's family swearing he was born there. There is still legitimate reason to question the validity of Obama's birth certificate and because it was never addressed by the party supporting him- the Democrats- I will NEVER vote for any member of that party on any level of government again for as long as I live (and I was a Democrat all my life). I consider there total lack of responsibility and refusal to follow established laws as acts of treason. Go Trump! Go Johnson! Go Stein! Go Anyone that isn't a Dem!!

Re: “Hopscotch, Night Two: Timing Tangles Erykah Badu and Young Thug

Though I know it isn't Redhat's fault she was late, I do think they could have handled the situation better. They released an updated set time initially, I wish they would have followed through and kept us updated. I also felt she was a bit more lackluster than usual. I know artists are people too, but she could have brought a bit more energy to the crowd who gave up precious show time to stay and wait on her. Kudos to Redhat for pushing past ordinance, but they should work on keeping the crowd up to date.

Re: “Three for Three: Atlantic Coast Conference Follows NCAA's Lead, Pulls "All Neutral-Site Championships"

I anticipate that Governor McCrory will soon lay blame for this vindictive conspiracy against North Carolina at the feet of the person truly responsible for starting it all : A foreign-born revolutionary whose radical ideas first erupted on our college campuses, swept across our nation like a plague of locusts, then encircled the globe with the swiftness of a pandemic fever, infecting countless millions in its path. That villain, of course, would be Professor James Naismith, the inventor of basketball.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: A Republican Lawmaker in N.C. Has Finally Spoken Out against HB 2

Full statement from the Susan Evans campaign:

A vote is a vote. When she voted for HB2 in March, Sen. Barringer knew what she was doing. She knew the legal and economic consequences her constituents would experience. Only now that she's in danger of losing her seat does she waffle. Her latest change of mind is certainly not a change of heart. It's a purely political move designed to make voters forget that she is responsible for the loss of jobs and millions of dollars in economic investment in her district. The voters of Senate District 17 are highly educated. They won't be fooled in November, and Sen. Barringer will pay the price by losing reelection to Susan Evans. Susan is running to renew North Carolina's promise and make us a leader in the South again. Barringer and Gov. McCrory have not kept that promise the last four years. In the Senate, Susan will fight to restore the values that make our state so great.

Cya pandering from Barringer. She's got a tough opponent, and that is the sole reason she's changed her stance.

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

The opportunity to work with this event, as a volunteer behind the scenes and as a newly minted 69 year-old actress, has led to a passion in me for the stage. I have been cast as Abby Brewster in Arsenic and Old Lace. We open on Friday in Wake Forest-- thank you to Ashley Popio for lighting the fire in my heart to take on such a demanding, and delightful, role!

Re: “The Morning Roundup: GOP Emails, Confiscated Guns, and Another McCrory Ad

Common sense would allow anyone to see that a reasonable and prudent traveler would bring along a LOADED handgun as protection from thugs and bandits. In America, we have given the thugs and bandits a badge and call them "TSA agents". The TSA serves no useful purpose and should be abolished.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: GOP Emails, Confiscated Guns, and Another McCrory Ad

From the original article "We have more than 10 million people a year traveling through the airport, 30,000 people a day passing through here," Roughly 7 million travelers and 36 weapons found. That you would be in the airport at the same time as one of these weapons is way less than your chance of being struck by lightning. Also a statement in the original article "Airport officials say the people who tried to bring the weapons through explained to officers they either forgot or didn't realize they were carrying." What??? That they would use these excuses tells me they should never have been carrying in the first place. I can't imagine how that is possible.
