North Carolina Governor demands more compliance with his mandates, threatens more lockdowns

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper says we're not wearing masks enough, and we're not social-distancing enough, and we're not washing our hands enough. So, if we don't comply with his new, stricter Executive Order... he'll look to lock the state down again. He's ordering authorities to punish individuals along with business owners who don't comply with his edict.

Buncombe approves the largest economic investment deal in five years in North Carolina... outrage ensues

Buncombe County approves $27 million in tax incentives to lure a Pratt & Whitney manufacturing facility to the area - with average salaries topping $60,000. But local leftists are mad because the piece that will be made by the Raytheon subsidiary goes into jet engines. Which they say will destroy the planet. Also, some of those engines will go onto military fighter jets. Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/petekalinershow See omnystudio.com/listener ...

I want to hear the evidence Trump's team says it has about compromised election software. You should, too.

The lawyers for President Trump say they intend to prove in court that he won in a landslide, and that the software and systems being used in many states is compromised and corrupted.

NC election results, recounts, & the disqualification of a winning candidate
