There is a series of terrorist attacks underway in Britain right now, and I will be linking to coverage over at West Carolina Report as events develop this afternoon.

24 Hour Alert Tones
Luckily so far, they appear to be amateurs. Let’s hope they don’t trigger others sympathetic to their cause on this side of the pond.

Across The Mountains 2007 Edition

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2007

A local newspaper, the Sylva Herald and Ruralite, has published an excellent glossy magazine, Across The Mountains, dedicated to the attractions of Jackson County, North Carolina.

If you are not close enough to drive and pickup a copy, you may download a pdf version of this year’s and last year’s editions. I just got through reading my copy, and I highly recommend it for those who plan to visit the area.

The Truth About Cuban Health Care

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2007

Or, How I Quit Worrying and Learned to Love Universal HealthHillary Care

One of the favorite things by Lefties is to try to present Cuban Health care as a “Model System” for the rest of the world. They usually get away with it because Cuba has become a Hell Hole under Communist Dictator Fidel Castro, that no one in their right mind goes there anymore.

The Cuban Government issues every tourist a “minder” while they are there, and interaction with the oppressed is severely limited. Nevertheless, word does get out, and so do photographs of the appalling conditions on the once tropical paradise.

Gateway Pundit has some of the photos, and exile Babalu has already debunked the Myth of the Cuban Health Care System.

And, who can forget about the Invisible Ones, who have been locked away by Lefty Fidel Castro for Reporting Truth. I guess Cuba has been under The Fairness Doctrine for many decades now, hmmm?

I hope our next President has the cojones to Liberate the Cuban People. It is within our power, and should be done.

Senators Dole, Burr, and The Daily Planet

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 29, 2007

I’d like to thank both of North Carolina’s US Senators for voting against cloture on the latest Amnesty attempt by those who would destroy America.

Who’ would have thunk that Dole would be more sensitive to her constituents than Burr, who has been touted as more conservative than Dole.

This is a victory that belongs to the conservative grassroots movement, and is but one of many to come. 2008 is looking better all the time.

The Asheville Daily Planet has published an article about the Rally to Stop Illegal Immigration, and did a much better, and accurate job of reporting than the AC-T.
If The Daily Planet ever became a daily, I believe they would give the Waste of Times a run for their money inside the city limits of Asheville.

To recap my own coverage of the Rally, see below:

Is Elizabeth Edwards a Hypocrite?

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 28, 2007

Remember the Nutroots blogger hired by the John Edwards Campaign?

Check out this video of Elizabeth Edwards call-in to Hardball the other day, and an entertaining remix at Hot Air embedded below:

I am sooo glad that the HildaBeast is waxing the floor with the Breck Girl…I really think he is the most likely to win in 2008 if he could get the nod from the Primaries.

I think there is nothing so intolerant as a tolerant Lefty. [Link to an example]

Put Senator Burr on the Spot

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 27, 2007

with current Amnesty Supporter

Senator Richard Burr’s office
Thursday, June 28th
8:00-10:00 am

All legal citizens of North Carolina Welcome

Be there to encourage our Senator do the right thing

Help make Richard Burr’s unscheduled conference call on June 28th a success

If a sufficient number of citizens show up at Senator Burr’s Winston-Salem office on Thursday from 8:00-10:00, it is likely that his staff will be able to locate him in Washington such that he can afford those he was elected to represent a few minutes in his busy schedule.

There is a conference room in Senator Burr’s local office.
It has a speaker phone.
Richard Burr knows how to use it.

Contact the Senator:

Senator Richard Burr

2000 West First Street, Suite 508

Winston-Salem, NC 27104

Phone 800-685-8916 or 336-631-5125

Fax 336-725-4493


This will not be a march or street protest by lawbreakers.

This will simply be a spontaneous gathering of citizens asking for representation from their public servants.

Bring your cameras and cell phones not your signs and pitchforks. Senator Burr has one last chance to avoid facing the tar and feather crowd.

Only a handful of those who come out to Senator’s Burr’s office will be allowed inside to participate in any conference call. The rest will be able to know though that they helped make it happen.

Asheville Rally Report part two

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 26, 2007

This is part two in a series covering the Rally to Stop Illegal Immigration put on Saturday by the Action Club of Buncombe County Saturday in Ferguson Auditorium on the campus of AB-Tech in Asheville, NC.

part one
Fern Shubert, former District 35 Senator, spoke about a misleading study by UNC professors that downplayed the high cost of illegal immigration in North Carolina. The professors were selected by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Mexican Consulate.

part two
Fern Shubert continues with how North Carolina newspapers worked with the Democrat Party to condone and cover up mass murder in Wilmington, North Carolina. This event marked the start of the rule of Jim Crow in the south, and the removal of black Republicans from office, and their right to vote in North Carolina. She also discussed North Carolina Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Aliens and the current effort to register them to vote.

Charles Thomas, NC House District 116, speaks Illegal Immigration in North Carolina, attempts to stop fraudulent Driver’s Licenses and Social Security Numbers. He addresses attempts to pass reform legislation in Raleigh, the importance of contacting General Assembly members in person, and the lack of reform in federally issued identification since 9/11.
He closed with a warnning that certain politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, are using the issue to court the Illegal Alien vote.

After 5pm, I will add videos of Dr Carl Mumpower of the Asheville City Council, Ron Woodard of NC Listen, William Gheen of ALIPAC, and Lee Anthony Nievez of You Don’t Speak For Me.
