NC leftist lawyers in robes toss out voter-approved laws

The four Democrat lawyers on the North Carolina Supreme Court just issued a ruling that would cancel recent voter-approved changes to the state constitution. Leftist groups sued over amendments that instituted voter ID and setting the state income tax rate at 7%. Voters approved other amendments, but the leftwing groups did not challenge those. The Democrat judges agreed with the Democrat plaintiffs that the legislature didn't have the authority to send t...

Big Tech announces renewal of election censorship tools

Big Tech companies are rolling out their censorship tools ahead of the US midterm elections - promising to suppress content that they deem to be "misinformation." Twitter and Meta (which owns Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp) are pledging to implement new and existing mechanisms to block stories, posts, pictures, memes, and comments that they deem to be false. These same mechanisms were implemented ahead of the 2020 presidential race to suppress the spre...

Are DOJ leakers unintentionally giving us the REAL reason for the Trump raid?

The US Department of Justice is being ordered by a federal judge to propose redactions to the affidavit used to get a search warrant on former President Donald Trump's home in Florida. The DOJ has one week to black out the parts of the document that the government says will compromise its investigation and expose witness identities. As the DOJ fights release of the affidavit, anonymous leakers from inside the agency are attempting to craft a narrative. Wh...

Charlotte animal shelter at capacity - needs your help

Charlotte-Mecklenburg's animal shelter needs help, as the number of dogs and cats has pushed the facility to capacity. Melissa Knicely with CMPD says they always see an increase in intakes during the summer. But as more people move to the Charlotte area, they're seeing more animals arrive at the shelter than in past years. Knicely is asking people to volunteer, adopt a pet, foster an animal, or take a pet home for a temporary "staycation" - just to get th...

The backlash against Wall Street ESG scoring grows

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is apparently running employees through an online "implicit bias" test. Pete took the test (for the third time in his life), and learned he has no preference for either European Americans or African Americans. Of course, the Church of Wokism would deem this proof that a person "doesn't see color" and is, therefor, still racist. It's a similar trap being used in our financial markets and corporate boardrooms to advance leftist...

Democrats are alienating Hispanic voters at an accelerating pace

Joe Biden did worse among Hispanic voters than Hillary Clinton, and the Democrat Party's focus on progressive ideology is driving more away. Plus, China is waging war against America - with fentanyl.     Get exclusive content here!: https://thepetekalinershow.com/ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Progressives say poll shows November promise

The Leftist organization Carolina Forward released a poll showing President Biden is unpopular, but a state legislative generic ballot shows they might actually be competitive. Plus, Ruy Teixeira says Democrats "erred by lumping Hispanics in with "people of color" and assuming they embraced the activism around racial issues."

Maybe Liz Cheney lost ON PURPOSE!

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) was defeated in a landslide yesterday. In her concession speech, she said her path tracks similarly with Abraham Lincoln who, like Cheney, lost a Senate and House race. So, maybe losing her re-election bid was part of her plan to be President.     Get exclusive content here!: https://thepetekalinershow.com/ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Monkeypox goes to the dogs. Plus, firing whiteys.

Monkeypox jumps from man to dog. Minneapolis teachers union 'jumps the shark' - calling for white teachers to be laid off first. Because.... racism. A seemingly similar motivation led to a massive payout for a former Charlotte hospital official.     Get exclusive content here!: https://thepetekalinershow.com/ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
