Progressives embarrass the NC Democratic Party. Again.

Just when NeoProgressives started fading into obscurity for lack of relevance, Progressive Democrats of North Carolina, Inc. found a way to grab some notoriety, and to prove again how truly irrelevant and damaging they can be to the NC Democratic Party.
.
PDNC tried to hitch it’s wagon to the rising scandal surrounding the improper appointment of then Gov Mike Easley’s wife to a faculty position at NC State University.  Only problem is, this has absolutely nothing to do with the Democratic Party.  Whatever Easley may have done, he did it on his own, totally without knowledge or any involvement of the Party.
.
All of this simple truth managed to escape Heiderose Kober, Orange County Precinct Chair and President of PDNC, Inc., a private membership Corporation which has absolutely no formal connection of any kind to the NC Democratic Party.  Choosing to quote Kolber as a reliable source would be like printing an opinion of Joe-the-Plumber, or some homeless person living under a bridge. As a Precinct Chair, she hardly represents the Voice of the Party.
.
But that’s exactly what the Raleigh News & Observer did in an Under the Dome Blog post by someone called Ryan Teague Beckwith on June 11th. (click on>  Progressive Dems: Investigate Easley
.
In one fell swoop, Beckwith proved how useless Blogs are for accurate information, and also what little he knows about NeoProggs who have been trying to invade and control the Democratic Party since they elected Jerry Meek State Chair 4 years ago.  Meek and the NeoProggs have a long history of hating Gov Easley, which somehow got lost in his story.  Easley, a former very knowledgeable Attorney General, had reasons to keep Meek from once being elected State Party Chair, and forced Lawyer Meek two years later to make an end run around Gov Easley by helping formalizing these NeoProggs, including both Progressives and LGBTers.  Meek promised them if they helped elect him State Chair, then he would have the power to make them an official Auxiliary of the Party, which, during 4 years in Office, Jerry could not and did not do.

This N&O Blog Post about the PDNC Press Release is one of the more egregious public examples of misinformation about PDNC’s non-relationship to the Party to date — while claiming that “Under the Dome is your inside source for NC politics and government”. What we have is another great opportunity to, once again, set the record straight about how those who call themselves NC Progressives are daft in the head, knowing nothing about politics in the real world.  Here are their errors that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.
.

1) First line: “A group of liberal Democrats . . .” Liberal Democrats live mostly in the decrepit minds of N&O writers. Republicans successfully beat that term to a pulp at least a decade ago.  Some — especially younger Democrats with no political experience nor comprehension of political history — now mistakenly call themselves Progressives, which can be defined any way you want it, and therefore, thus far escapes the slur that “Lib-ruls” provided Republicans for a half century.
.
NeoProggs on the Left are on the Opposite Lunatic Fringe from NeoCons on the Right in the current Political Spectrum, with the huge majority of voters falling somewhere near the Middle.  NeoProggs are Anarchists-in-Progressive-Drag, wrapping themselves in some left-over Liberal causes, trying to divert attention from the fact that the only thing PDNC, Inc craves is to run the NC Democratic Party.  PDNC, Inc is not now, nor ever has been, and never can be any part of the Party.  Corporate PDNC is the NC Caucus of an out-of-state Political Action Committee from New England.  Just because some Corporation sticks “Democrats” in its name does NOT mean it represents the Party in any manner.
.
Not elected as Progressives to any Office inside the Party, PDNC Members are a small group of very loud Renegades whose quest for power is as rabid as are their delusions that they deserve it because of their moral superiority.  Nowhere are these delusions more evident than in this PDNC attempt to ride Mike Easley into the ground.
.
But first, this: in its ByLaws and Purpose, PDNC set itself up — without invitation — as the Moral Police for the Democratic Party, because these Chapel Hillians didn’t like Mike Easley’s version of the Party.  They first tried to ride to notoriety on the coat tails of the Jim Black scandal, which also had nothing to do with the Party.  PNNC was too young and disorganized to make much headway with that one, so they are saddling up early to ride Easley down.  God save the Democratic Party from Reformers.
.
When Jim Black was forced out of his Mecklenburg Precinct 100 seat, an Assistant Principal — and daughter of a long-term powerhouse in Charlotte politics — somehow mysteriously got appointed to replace Black.  Tricia Cotham is now the woman that then State Party Chair Jerry Meek married in the Dominican Republic, chosen so that certain “friends” would not show up at the wedding.
.
Progressives who successfully infiltrated Young Democrats of NC, including its new Progressive President Conen Morgan, a student at NCSU, could not be seen giving an Award to their disgraced hero, Jerry Meek, so they awarded it to his Legislatively inexperienced wife as: Top Legislator of the Year.
.
Progressives at YDNC also awarded it highest Volunteer Award to Progressive Jerimee Richir, who was not a volunteer, but a highly paid NCDP HQ Staffer.  Two months after receiving the award, Richir was removed as NCDP Online Communications Director, for spending too much time posting his personal views of the Party on Progressive Blogs, some of which he helped originate, which was NOT part of his NCDP job.  In Comments to this Dome Article, claims are made that Richir was fired — and also that he was not — proving once again the worthlessness of believing Blog Comments.
.
Ironically, Richir posted a Comment on this Dome Blog, only 3 hours after it appeared, in which he violated Policy by posting a cartoon obscenity, which Beckwith chimed in with: profanity is not allowed.  Beckwith, in addition to having no idea what PDNC, Inc is, apparently also doesn’t understand the difference between obscenity and profanity.
.
In a later Comment, Jerimee claimed he contacted PDNC and said their entire Membership was given a chance to help write the statement and approve it.  Good to know that all hundred of them have the same kind of political ignorance and immaturity, and all “voted” to do as much public damage to the Party as possible.  Lynch-mob mentality has been a shining Hallmark of the NeoProgg Movement since it’s inception, doing more harm inside the Democratic Party than Republicans ever could.
.
You can read this Balderdash for your own amusement by clicking on Progressive Dems: Investigate Easley. Comments read from the bottom up.

2) PDNC Pres Heide Kober: “We are chagrined by the deafening silence coming from the N.C. Democratic Party and Democratic leaders in the General Assembly concerning these allegations, and feel that it is essential for the party to speak up.”
.
Duh! This has nothing to do with the Democratic Party, nothing to do with the General Assembly, and truly, nothing to do with the Governorship.  Why would any politicly savvy Democrat have anything to say about it?  Sure, the Republicans will gain points from this, just exactly as would have Democrats, had the shoe been on the other foot.  Why would ANY intelligent Democrat want to keep a public spotlight shinning on what the Republicans are claiming???
.
But then, no one has ever made the mistake of calling NeoProggs — and PDNC Members in particular — intelligent.  Everything PDNC, Inc. has done since becoming a private membership Corporation has proven how dumb they are.  This Press Release is just one more shot in their own foot.
_________________________________
.
3) But this time, serious damage was done to the Party which PDNC falsely claims to represent. A casual reader would think this is an Official spokesperson for the Party, instead of a nobody.  Heide’s Press Release continues:  The group warned that Democrats risk “being further discredited” on corruption issues, allowing Republicans to “feign the moral and ethical high ground.”
.
Feign?  FEIGN?  (feign: to give a false appearance of)  Republicans do not “pretend” they have the moral and ethical high ground.  In this case, Republicans HAVE the moral and ethical high ground.  And Heide is doing all in her power to make sure EVERYONE knows that the Republicans have it.
_________________________________
.
4) To grind her heel into the Democratic Party even more than Republican Minority Leader Senator Phil Berger has been able to do, Heide shot herself again in her other foot: “Failure to stand resolutely against political corruption and cronyism regardless of party, will, in no uncertain terms, invite defeat.”
.
The only people inviting a Democratic Party defeat are the NeoProggs, with PDNC now leading the Parade.  During the 2008 Election, Progressives drove more Moderate and Conservative Democrats away from the Party than they brought in new Progressive voters.  Progressives created a net loss of votes for the Party.  It’s a proven fact.  And in NC, Progressives always will:  66 Counties voted a majority for McPalin, with only 34 for Obama, because State Party Chair Jerry Meek could not deliver the votes.  Had Obama’s team not opened 50 Campaign Offices across NC, brought in campaigners from GA, SC and TN, spent tens of millions on TV ads and visits, he would not have had the 14,177 vote plurality out of 5 million ballots cast to turn NC the palest, most delicate shade of Blue.

Progressives, by stunts like this grossly absurd PDNC News Release, are guaranteeing Burr will return to the US Senate in 2010. What viable Senatorial Candidate in his or her right mind would run to represent a Party which cannot expel this dangerous, parasitic, invasive species from it?  If not neutered immediately, Progressives may also help return a Republican to the White House in 2012.  NeoProggs loose elections.  Period.
_________________________________
.
For 3 years, I’ve written to Democrats all across NC warning about the rising menace of NeoProggs in NC Politics.  Tho not one Progressive Group Jerry Meek let slip in the back door is any legitimate part of the Party, their Members have covertly sequestered themselves as Officers inside the Party at all Levels, from Precinct to State Executive Committee.  Wake County Party alone elected dozens of Progressive Group Members as one-third of its SEC Delegates a few weeks ago.  NOT one of these were honest enough at the County Convention to tell those electing them that they support a covert Progressive agenda.
.
Wake County is the Invasion Model PDNC plans to use to spread its self-defeating political agenda all across 100 NC Counties.  Jerry Meek used his job as the former State Chair, traveling on the Party’s dime, to help NeoProggs find and conquer about a dozen Counties, which I’ve listed several times in earlier Editions.
.
Why form your own Party when you can infiltrate and overthrow one that already exists? It’s the Progressive Way.
.
By graciously providing this large viewing Window into the warped and twisted minds of politically naive Progressives, Heide has done the Party a great favor.  Just imagine how much damage she could have done if PDNC, Inc had been made an Official Auxiliary of the Party, instead of being an outsider throwing moral dirt clods at the Party, just exactly like the Republicans are doing.  Heiderose has given a most persuasive reason to NEVER allow ideological groups of any stripe to be formally seated anywhere inside the NC Democratic Party.  Only destructive chaos comes from it.
.
Best interests of Corporate PDNC will ALWAYS come ahead of best interests of the Democratic Party.  Always.

A closer look at Wake County politics

Offered below is a wrap-up of an event first described in Edition 118, issued just before the May 30th State Executive Council meeting in Raleigh. An example was used for what is now referred to as a SlanderFest in which several Wake County Democratic Party Officers participated — joyfully — until they got caught. Then, like Bullies do, they suddenly shut up, a pretty solid signal of guilt.
.
You recall, based both upon SlanderFest and earlier attacks of Witches of Wake upon Democrat Evangelista at a Jan 31st SEC meeting, that I had strongly recommended the NCDP State Chair David Young exercise his prerogative of Leadership and do this:
.
First item of business: Issue an Executive Order (Declaration, or whatever) that says something like this: “Effectively immediately, no Officer of NCDP shall maliciously attack another Democrat.  Any Officer discovered doing so shall immediately forfeit all Offices held in the Party. No Officer of the Party shall make ANY comment about the Party or another Democrat using a false identity.”
.
Well, it never got brought up.  Apparently powers-that-be in the Party do not think that Officers of the Party attacking other Democrats is a bad thing.  But because the Party failed to act to protect all Democrats from attacks by Officers, Edition 008 below was sent to most everyone in the General Assembly and several hundred local and national Lawyers and Judges.  This [NCDP-on-Trial] Edition will bring it to Democratic Members of the Council of State, Congress and County Officers across NC, among others.  It might have been a whole lot simpler just to prohibit Officers of the Party from beating up on other Democrats.
.
Most interestingly, a very few have Removed themselves from the [Judges-on-Trial] mailing list, but this one today was curious:  Dean of the UNC Law School Jack Boger.  He gave no reason why, which leaves only speculation:  was it because they fail to teach lawyers not to represent themselves and how to avoiding disbarment?  or was it from embarrassment that he recognized some of those up for Disbarment are UNC Law Graduates?  We have no reason to check where these Lawyers were taught Law, but if any of you happen to know, feel free to clue us in.  Enjoy!   Gene for NC Democrats Network.
.
=====================================
.
[Judges-on-Trial] 008:
Lawyers committing career suicide
.
Finally, a massive project: Indictment of the State of North Carolina, was completed and issued on June 4th, an auspicious day as it was the first Meeting of Gov Bev’s Crime Commission newly Chaired with Scott Thomas.  Section One referred to every licensed Lawyer in Rockingham County NC, including all Judges, who will soon have Complaints for Disbarment filed against them.
.
One might wonder how Lawyers, and Judges who are Lawyers, earned a slot in Section Two, with their mugs posted in the Rogue’s Gallery. How are separate Complaints against this set of Lawyers and Judges related, other than that they all reside in Wake County?  What is the thread which connects them one to another?
.
Each Complaint was filed as a result of Lawyer/Defendants being Players in Wake County Democratic Politics.  Had they not been — or had I not been  — none of this would have happened.  Which also contributes significantly to my theory that Wake County Democratic Politics is an open cesspool of supreme arrogance layered on top of pathetic stupidity by a surprising number of those who choose to immerse themselves in this pool.
.
According to The NC State Bar, the Capitol City has 3,890 licensed lawyers calling it home.  Raleigh is the undisputed hotbed of political intrigue in North Carolina.  With additional Lawyers as Lobbyists, Lawyers as Legislators, Lawyers appealing cases, and Lawyers as Politicians, more Lawyers are always pouring in from outside Wake County. How many times have there been 5,000 Lawyers in Wake County at the same time?  Did the Earth wobble slightly from this imbalance?  Is Raleigh a Lawyer’s Paradise or Lawyers’ Hell-on-wheels?
.
A cursory observation about Lawyers is this:  they do not represent themselves, and therefore do not personally feel the gain or loss their clients feel. It’s all in a day’s work. Lawyers toil, for a substantial fee, for someone else, those who feel the glory of their success, or the pain and shame of their failure, personally. So Lawyers move on like scavengers from case to case, never looking back.
.
Except for one category of Lawyers:  the ones who make the error of representing themselves as his or her own client.  Some of those are the ones we look at today.  By foolishly representing themselves, each has a Complaint for Disbarment filed against them with The State Bar.  And because of these, there are more Lawyers standing in the wings, waiting to come on stage for their moment of glory in our play: The Tragedy of Self Enragement.
.
First, my Disclaimer: As a wordsmith, it’s not my job to stop anyone from committing a crime which they have voluntarily dedicated themselves to commit.  I’m a professional observer.  Everyone in my historical stories has Free Will: no one is forcing any of the characters I write about to do anything they choose to do to themselves.  But it is my job to catch them if I can, and to let people see them for who they really are.

Lawyer Lisa Grafstein - serial Email Bomber- impersonator of Judges
.
Multiple confessions to Email Bombing over a 2 year period.
.
A Wake Co reader suggested Grafstein may have worked on Judge’s election campaigns. If she did, she never said so. Since the Judicial Standards Commission has refused to investigate Grafstein’s impersonation of Judges, then the JSC requested that The State Bar investigate these Judges/Lawyers for possible unethical behavior. If The State Bar refuses to disbar Grafstein, then at least she shall never be able to again claim she represents Judges.  The public is protected: mission accomplished.
.
Judicial Standards Commission was given a full 6 months to review the 19-page Complaint against Grafstein, and refused to do so. Therefore, presumption is that Judges impersonated by Grafstein were complicit, either then, or now. Hence, failure of JSC to act means that Disbarment Complaints are required to be filed against Judges. How this pool of dishonesty spreads to encapsulate others, now stuck like flies to flypaper.
.
.
Lawyer & Appellate Judge Linda Stephens,
Lawyer & Lower Court Judge Kristin Ruth,
and perhaps unknown other Lawyer/Judges
.
.
Lawyer Paul Ross – JSC Executive Director, and his boss:
Lawyer & Chief Appellate Judge John Martin
.
Ross confessed to refusing to schedule Complaint against Grafstein for JSC Review for more than 6 months. His boss, Judge Martin, failed to require Lawyer Ross to do the job he is paid from public funds to do. This Case proves conclusively that Judges cannot be trusted nor allowed to regulate Judges. The de facto purpose of JSC is to protect wrongdoing of Judges from pubic scrutiny.
.
.
Lawyer Jack Nichols - SlanderFest Promoter
.
At a called meeting of the Wake Co Democratic Party to elect Rep Dan Blue to the NC Senate, Chair Jack Nichols, encouraged, by his example, that other Party Officers engage in a verbal SlanderFest of another Democrat. Whether The State Bar decides to disbar Nichols for his behavior, at least Nichols will think twice before he leads a personal slander attack on another Democrat. It’s up to the Party to decide if what he did rises to the level of moral turpitude, and justifies removing him from all Offices he holds in the Party.
.
.
Lawyer / Candidate Michael Weisel - Slander & Libel
.
Wrote a voluntary Email confession of using hearsay evidence to libel a Democrat to his Internet Service Provider, intended to destroy service and therefore livelihood.  If The State Bar refuses to disbar Wiesel based upon his confession, then at least Mr Wise-all will not be able to run for public office again. The public is protected: mission accomplished.
.
.
Lawyer Jeffrey Marsocci -  Destroyer of Internet Service
.
I looked at his Email. Looked at who it was addressed to.  Read his Email.  Looked again at who he sent it to.  Scratched my head in wonderment: did he really, Really, REALLY send a confession to the State Bar?   And, yes, he did.  He chose, of his own free will, to voluntarily end his legal career.  Who am I to object, Your Honor?
.
Whether The State Bar chooses to accept Marsocci’s Confession and disbar him, it appears he chose not to stand for election to an Office in the Party this last election cycle. If he does happen to hold an Office, then it is up to the Party to decide if his crime rises to the level of moral turpitude, justifying removal.
======================================
.
WHY?!? Presumably, lawyers very intentionally choose their legal careers with careful deliberation: Law School. Sit for the Bar Exam. Set up practice, or join a firm.  Hope to make partner one day.  Make a lot of money.  Maybe get involved in politics, run for public office.  Good possibility for a piece of stardom.  Not a bad Life Plan.
.
So why would any Lawyer put all of this at risk by doing something supremely stupid?  I’m not calling these Lawyers stupid.  They are obviously very bright people among the rest of us ordinary mortals.  But what they chose to do as Lawyers was dumb.  What degree of arrogance did it require to look at another human being and decide to squash the life out of him like swatting a bug?
.
Grafstein decided she was so superior, and I was so inferior, that she would Email Bomb me until her heart was content, and that I could do nothing about it. Had Ross simply done the job he was paid to do, no one would ever have heard of him. His failure not only incriminated his boss Martin, but cast a presumption of guilt upon Stephens, Ruth, and perhaps others.
.
Nichols looked at the behavior of his predecessor Chair, Doris Weaver, and decided that attacking fellow Democrats was not only acceptable, but it was part of his job as Chair of the Wake County Party.  Weisel participated in his SlanderFest, and decided that if he and his former law partner Nichols could get away with open slander, why not try libeling me to my ISP as well.  And Marsocci?  If he had kept his mouth shut, instead of spouting off to The State Bar, I would never have known that it was he who destroyed my Internet Service in 2006.

Six cases closed, all guilty. Two carried over.

Call the next case . . .

Orientation for NCDP Exec Director Andrew Whalen, Part One

YDNC nails its Young Dem of the Year for “Conduct unbecoming . . . ” and lying about it.
.
Dear Andrew,
.
Hope you are progressing well, cleaning out NCDP HQ Staff of all Jerry Meek’s left-overs.
.
It’s your prerogative to accept all their resignations as the new Executive Director.
.
In case you need a reason to dump Online Communications Director Jerimee Richir, here is what Young Democrats of North Carolina presented to you on their Official YDNC Website.
.
Jerimee has been secretly blogging under a false name. How many different false blog identities does he hide under? That’s your job to find out. But this particular one created a massive unethical embarrassment for his employer, the NC Democratic Party. Jerimee signed in on a NC General Assembly Blogsite as Rep Paul Stam, Republican leader in the NC House — and got caught, red handed.
.
By confessing to this lie and unethical behavior, Jerimee has admitted he committed “conduct unbecoming of an NCDP Staff Member” at least this once, if not many more times in the past. Former NCDP State Chair Jerry Meek encouraged his Communications Directors to be dishonest, and one of Jerimee’s predecessors, Schorr Johnson, was caught and fired for it. As should be Jerimee. Immediately, before he can erase evidence of his dishonesty in his NCDP Computer. He could try to crash the whole system to get rid of it.
.
The post below was found Sunday 5/31/09 on YDNC’s Official Website: http://www.ydnc.org/ which was originally posted by Laura Leslie of WUNC Radio on May 26th, almost exactly the same hour Jerimee sent an NCDP Newsletter announcing your appointment as Executive Director, in a desperate and failed attempt to divert attention away from his crime, as sociopaths normally do. NC Democrats Network thanks YDNC President Conen Morgan for allowing the truth to be told about Jerimee, itsYDNC of the Year Award Recipient at the YDNC Annual Conference held just 2 months ago, where Conen was also elected President, and took Office on May 1st.
______________________________
.
In the following YDNC Post, Jerimee confessed to a WUNC Radio Reporter that he had lied by inventing a fake “skipstam” account on Twitter, claiming that it belonged to NC House Republican Leader Paul Stam.
.
He justified his lie this way: ” I registered the skipstam account on twitter to hold Stam accountable for his attacks on marginalized people “
.
Ms Leslie asked: ” is twitter impersonation ethical? Your “name” is listed as Paul Stam… #NCGA “
.
To which Jerimee replied: ” Is making that kind of accusation ethical? Nobody is impersonating Stam. I’ll change the name now. “
.
And she replied: ” I believe it is ethical to ask that question. Who wouldn’t? “
.
To which Jerimee diverted blame for this confessed crime this way: ” The question assumes guilt “
.
Here’s the YDNC HomePage link to Jerimee’s Confession:
.
Tuesday: Twitterjacked?
While I was twittering tweeting today’s Senate session, I noticed a new #NCGA Twitter feed, @SkipSt…
.
______________________________________________
.
Paid NCDP Staffer Jerimee Richer has confessed to falsely impersonating an elected member of the NC General Assembly. Whether this rises to the level of a prosecutable crime is up to the NC Attorney to decide. But it clearly rises to the level of moral turpitude, justifying his firing as NCDP Online Communications Director.
.
Additionally, he has failed to do the job he is paid to do. The NCDP Website Directory of County Party contact information is in total wreckage, as it has been since he took over as Online Communications Director. This was clearly identified to Jerry and Jerimee in [NCDP-on-Trial] 072 back last July. Only 37 County Parties had Websites, and 12 addresses posted on NCDP’s Official Directory were expired or could not connect. That left only 25 out of 100 Counties with working Websites.
.
A survey of all 100 Counties was done again on May 7, 2009, 3 weeks after all County Conventions had elected new Officers. A summary indicates that the NCDP Website Directory is in the worst shape it has ever been, eaten up with false and misleading information at every turn.
.
One major reason is that YOUR predecessor Caroline Valand quit as Executive Director 6 months ago when she saw Jerry was abandoning ship, and she did not want to be left holding the bag. Therefore, Jerimee has had no Boss for 6 months, and saw the chance to advance his personal Progressive agendas without interference. He even has some links for County Websites connecting to his personal Email address, NOT to his NCDP address.
.
You are assuming Executive Directorship of the most corrupted Democratic State Party in our nation. Jerry Meek dumped his unparalleled mess in State Chair David Young’s lap, and he, in turn, dumped it into your lap. One of your handicaps is this: both of you are from Western NC, and neither of you have any experience inside the crazy and complex State Party Structure. Therefore, you do not even have any idea where to look for the corruption that must be cleaned up before the Party will be ready to run Election 2010. Forget municipal elections in 2009. You’ve already lost that opportunity by being hired so late in the game.
.
And for all practical political purposes, you have also probably already lost the US Sentate Election in 2010, due to invasion of unmonitored immature goofball Progressives like Jerimee who are at best, loud and brazen political adolescents.
.
Get control of the Party, by first getting control of your Staff. Fire everyone, and hire only people you can vet yourself and trust, beginning immediately with your Online Communications Director.

Bully Stories: Hit him again! Hit him again! Harder!

TO: Jack Nichols, Wake County Democratic Party Chair

Greetings, Jack, on this Memorial Day Weekend! [Emailed: Early Sat morn, 5/23/09: No response.]
.
Five days ago I sent you an Email describing a situation which developed at Democratic Party Headquarters in Raleigh.
.
At that meeting of Officers of the Wake County Party, you, as its Chair, slandered me to other Officers of the Wake County Party. You’re a Lawyer, and therefore presumably understand what slander is.
.
Not only did you slander me, but by your example, you encouraged others around you to do the same, which they did.
.
This is the brief description which I sent to you.
_______________________________________
.
Here is the statement you made at that Wednesday Meeting to elect Rep Dan Blue to the NC Senate to replace Vernon Malone: “…my mother told me never to argue with an idiot. You know he lives in Virginia.”
.
Another guy standing there said “…yeah, he’s a blooming idiot.”
.
Another comment came from former Wake Chair Weisel who said I was “a nut case” and also added that I live in Virginia.
_______________________________________
.
I asked for you as Chair of the Wake County Party to take responsibility and confirm the accuracy of what was said, and to identify others who made derogatory statements. You have not. I also learned from witness Stephen Wilder, a Psychologist and long term Democratic supporter in Raleigh, that another Officer called me a sociopath to that same group.
.
In addition to sending the above statement to you, Jack, a simultaneous copy was also sent to your former Law-partner, Michael Weisel, because I do try my best NOT to talk about people behind their backs.
.
Subsequently Mr Weisel ( who on his Political Website emphasizes it’s pronunciation as WISE-ALL, as opposed to something else, I guess) prepared a letter of complaint to me about receiving Emails from me and from NC Democrats Network.
.
In it he made a number of false and/or misleading statements, and claimed as his evidence various unstated false and libelous BloggerLies posted by other Officers of your Party in Wake County. Some of your Blogger Officers are simple cowards who hide the source of their lies behind Blog Aliases. As a Lawyer, you must know that all of this would be ruled Out of Order in a courtroom as hear-say evidence. Mr Wise-All appears to be a Financial Lawyer, and therefore may seldom ever see the inside of a courtroom. But one would assume that you were both taught in Law School that it’s not at All-Wise to serve as your own Lawyer.
.
Had Mr Wise-All simply sent a request for removal of his Email address from future mailings, it would have been done. Had he simply sent his Email Complaint to me, and/or to the Eden NC ground address he used, he would have ended any further delivery. Instead, Mr Wise-All sent copies also to 2 abuse addresses at my ISP, with the single intent of shutting down my Internet Service, including also my ability to send both personal and business Email.
.
Mr Wise-All, a former several times Candidate for State Treasurer, compounded his slander to you and others by purveying libel with intent to cause me considerable harm. I’m assuming, that since this involved you from the beginning, as Leader of the Pack, that he may have boastfully sent a copy to you for your amusement, and perhaps to other Officers involved in your Slander Gang.
.
Mr Wise-All had two Email addresses in use as I discovered. One was provided to the public for use on his Website as a Candidate for the Democratic Party infoX!X@Weisel2008.org . The other was issued in a list of State Executive Committee Members by the State Party, and appeared on that list thusly:
.
WeiselMichaelMichael1907 Victoria RoadRaleigh, NC 27608Wake(919) 881-9192(919) 828-0731 mlweiselX!X@bellsouth.net Allen & Pinnix PaAttorneyWM
.
No commercial Email nor solicitations were sent to Mr Wise-All. Only informational Emails related to the Party or issues of interest to the Party, including meeting notice reminders and commentaries, were sent.
.
Mr Wise-All could have simply asked that his address be removed, which he did not. Or he could have blocked the sender address in his computer, and nothing would deliver to him. Instead, Mr Wise-All, a former Chair of the Wake County Party for two terms in 1999-2003, chose a Sneak Attack upon another Democrat as his weapon of choice.
.
This has been the typical response by Defenders of Jerry Meek, who wish to bury and conceal the corruption he caused within the Party for 4 years of his NCDP Chairmanship. Attack, attack, attack. No truth shall be told. Truth tellers shall be destroyed. Kill the messenger! The number of anonymous tips I receive attest to the success of Jerry’s Campaign of Fear Mongering, and urges me forward in my quest to bring honesty and open truth-telling back into the Democratic Party of my native State.
_______________________________________
.
For the moment, this Email is between you and me, because I am forbidden to send a copy to Mr Wise-All. However, for my own protection and security, I am forwarding copies to a few other key persons in NCDP.
.
So. What do we do about this, Jack? As an Officer of the Party, you and other Officers have slandered another Democrat. Your Lawyer buddy Mr Wise-All has slandered and libeled another Democrat, and maliciously attempted to severely damage his livelihood.
.
Do these offenses rise to the level of Moral Turpitude, being sufficient grounds for your permanent removal from all Offices in the Party, as specified in the NCDP Plan of Organization?
.
We can travel down that road, Jack, if you wish. Where it might lead, God only knows. But perhaps this is as good a Case as any to test the limits of abusive punishment authority for Officers of the Party, and to determine what kinds of aberrant behaviors are acceptable — and which are not — for persons elected to serve and represent the Democratic Party.
.
Or, in the alternative, the two of you plus the rest of your Slander Gang might figure out what series of apologies from you would be appropriate, and to whom they should be issued. That’s not too great a task for two (or more?) licensed Lawyers to figure out, is it Jack? If you want to signify your return to honesty, please do so before the middle of next week.
_______________________________________
.
Jerry Meek, also a Lawyer, slandered others. Often. By his example, he set a new Precedent for the Party, that anyone who criticized His Highness could be attacked without mercy by Jerry’s Defenders, and nothing would be done to them for protecting their King. You apparently fell for his con, believing that — as Officers of the Party in the Meek tradition — you could get away with anything, without consequences.
.
The consequences are found in the term: Moral Turpitude. Just how far can elected Party Officers go, and when will they be held accountable for damaging the reputation of the Party which they were elected to protect and honor?
_______________________________________
.
In case you want to try to turn my words back against me, claiming that I have been doing the same — let me assure you of this: I am not now, nor have I ever been, an elected Officer of the Party as you are. I am an independent investigative journalist, voluntarily doing my duty as a citizen, as an ordinary member of the Democratic Party.
.
When I began exposing Jerry Meek’s corruption of the Party 3 years ago, he gave orders to excommunicated me, which he absolutely had no authority to do. No Officer was to respond to anything I said. And so, I began writing and sending truth about Jerry’s corruption. No one is hated more than one who tells the truth about Jerry’s Party.
.
Although each of you may be kicked out as Officers of the Party for being unfit to serve, no one can kick you out of Membership in the Democratic Party. Not being able to fire me as an Officer, Jerry Meek tried to expel me from my Party, in every way he could, including having Delmas Parker go after my wife to try shut me up. Innocent of any wrongdoing — other than being married to me — Jerry had her fired as Chair of the Rockingham County Party, which led to her complete emotional collapse from which she has not recovered.
.
When you accept an Officership in the Party — from Precinct Officer all the way up to State Chair — you accept a responsibility to represent the Party in an honest and honorable fashion. Jack, this is your one and only brief moment to redeem yourself for the crimes you’ve committed — not against me — but against 2+ million current members of the North Carolina Democratic Party, and all those many millions of other fine and honorable Democrats who have preceded you.
.
Here’s hoping the remainder of your Memorial Day holiday weekend is productive and enjoyable. Cordially, Gene

Finally! After 6 months without one, an Executive Director has been hired for NCDP. The Executive Director is found at HQ in Raleigh, and takes care of the day-to-day running of the Party. He is Andrew Whalen, a rising star in Congressman Heath Shuler’s sweep-out of Charlie “Chain-saw” Taylor in the 11th District, where I once lived and produced fundraisers for one of his predecessors, Congressman Jamie Clark, a fine environmentalist. I spent a decade working to defeat Charlie, who claimed to be the only “forester” in Congress, and championed every bill to allow the timber industry to cull our National Forests for huge profits from taxpayers, by paying pennies on dollar-value of what they stole from us. Charlie earned his nickname by passing a scam bill which said if there were a few diseased trees found in a forest, a huge acreage could be auctioned off for clear-cutting, to “protect” the forest.
.
I also defeated Charlie’s attempt to build a 4-story I-Max Movie Theater on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville, to set a Precedent of using our National Parks to promote commercial interests, which has never been allowed. Included in that effort was 3 years spent firing the Republican Superintendent, who had cut a deal for Charlie to appropriate money to build a new Headquarters Building on the Parkway, to be named after Gary, in exchange for Gary’s support for Charlie’s I-Max. Once Western NC Alliance — who fought Charlie on forest clear-cutting for years — was an ally. When WNCA’s Ex Dir Brownie Newman got bought off, Brownie taught me, firsthand, the worthlessness of relying on Progressives for anything.
.
Andrew Whalen was instrumental in Charlie’s defeat, and as a Congressional Staffer, he’s been receiving [NCDP-on-Trial] Editions for some time, and so is well aware of political wreckage to the Party Jerry has caused. Hopefully, State Chair David Young chose him as the right person to help get rid of the Progressive Menace which Jerry unleashed upon the Party 4-years ago.
.
Shuler was able to be elected in Western NC ONLY because he is on the opposite end of the Political Spectrum from Progressives. In Congress he is a Blue Dog Dem, having been one of a very few Democrats to vote against Obama’s Economic Stimulus Package. Andrew Whalen knows, from the frontlines of political battle, that NC is not a Progressive State, and cannot beat Burr in 2010, nor reelect Obama in 2012, by becoming more Progressive.
.
Quite the opposite is true. NCDP must rebuild its Center and court the Conservatives in the Democratic Party if there is to be victory in NCDP’s future. Progressives are, and always shall be, only a small — although loud — Radical Fringe of the NC Democratic Party. It’s time to retire all Progressive Groups from the Party, wish them well, and let them to go form their own Social Activist Ideological Groups, outside the Party. Progressive Groups as illegitimate Auxiliaries have no right to a political future inside the NC Democratic Party.
.
You may write to Andrew at AWhalen@ncdp.org to welcome him, and wish him Godspeed in the task ahead of him.

==================o0O0o=====================
.
On this Saturday, as announced in Edition 117, the State Executive Council will meet at Party HQ in Raleigh at 10:30 am. The State Executive Committee is some 600+ Members, and meets usually only twice a year. This Council is a select group of Party Leaders, as specified in the Plan of Organization, to meet between times, with the authority of the full SEC. As with all Party meetings, any registered Democrat is welcome to attend this one.
.
Here is what I sent to Chair David Young earlier this week, to take advantage of this unique and timely Opportunity to deal with Party Officers who have been led astray, believing they can operate individually and independently of the Plan of Organization, all the while publicly damaging the reputation of the Party.
__________________________________________
.
Greetings David,
.
Hope you enjoyed a fine Holiday with your family, away from your computer. Responses to Editions 116 & 117 have been most gratifying. Readers are now beginning to fully understand what went wrong with their Party, and why.
.
You have some Officers who have been poorly trained about what being an Officer of the Party means, and the personal behavior responsibilities that are required. Not at all a surprise, the troublemakers are part of the Progressive Group invasion of the Party which Jerry promoted.
.
You had a perfect Opportunity to set the Party on a road to recovery by removing all the illegitimate Progressive Groups when you took office Jan 31st. Instead — probably being leaned-on by brazen Progressive Bullies — you let that Opportunity slide by, unattended, and now these left-over Storm Troopers are growing meaner and nastier. Your inattention has emboldened them, and they will only become worse.
.
You lost control of your Officers, just as Jerry did, by letting them roam free, taking slanderous and libelous potshots at anyone with whom they disagree. When Officers are out of control, the Party is out of control.
.
On Saturday at the State Executive Council Meeting, you have another perfect Opportunity to exert control over your Party Officers, from bottom to top, without ever mentioning the word Progressive.
.
This is a tough Leadership problem, a situation which can build your legacy, or let it keep sliding away. It’s your choice.
_____________________________
.
Here’s my recommendation for 3 items to begin your Agenda for Saturday:
.
First item of business: Issue an Executive Order (Declaration, or whatever) that says something like this: “Effectively immediately, no Officer of NCDP shall maliciously attack another Democrat. Any Officer discovered doing so shall immediately forfeit all Offices held in the Party. No Officer of the Party shall make ANY comment about the Party or another Democrat using a false identity.”
.
Item 2) Present an Amendment to the Plan of Organization which codifies this Rule, for passage on Saturday. You and the Council have that authority. Use it.
.
Item 3) Set this Amendment as the first matter of business for the next SEC Meeting, with your request as Chair that it be ratified unanimously.
.
Feel free to expand on the wording as your lawyers tell you is appropriate, but usually the simpler the better. Your Officers may speak, write, debate, present opinions; but they cannot Attack. If they want to Attack, they resign first. If they Attack without resigning, they are removed from all Offices. It’s really that simple.
.
That’s my suggestion for you to begin to get this Progressive Monster, which Jerry left for you to attend, under control in order to move the Party forward effectively.
.
Please rest assured that whether this happens or not doesn’t affect what I do. My job is to document the current corruption of the Party, and it’s cure, if any.
.
If you do nothing, then you are openly accepting personal responsibility for everything your Officers do. If your Order and Amendment are accepted by the Council, then any Officer who keeps any Blog or FaceBook posted with Attacks on another Democrat shall either resign, or be fired as an Officer of the Party.
.
I will tell your story, however you and your Officers choose to make it happen. Cordially, Gene
.

Breaking News! Charlotte Observer political reporter Jim Morrill wrote an article about the African American Caucus squabble in last Sunday’s Edition. In it he made this statement: “In addition to the African American caucus, the Democratic Party has auxiliaries such as Hispanic Democrats and Progressive Democrats.”
.
Commenter Jquinton posted this yesterday: Correction: The Progressive Democrats ARE NOT an auxiliary group of the NC Democratic Party. Progressive Democrats fail to meet the criteria for auxiliary clubs per the NCDP Plan of Organization. As a reporter, Mr. Morrill, you should verify your information before including it in a story.
The progressive democrats are a problematic group and are trying to overtake the NCDP from its more moderate and conservative democratic brethren. The progressive democrats destroy any democrat in its path. Republican party operatives are aware of this problem and are watching from sidelines to see the democratic party in NC self destruct.

Guilford vs. Wake County Democratic Parties

Challenge Issued!! Recently elected Guilford County Party Chair & ComWorkers Lobbyist Tom Coley threw down the Gauntlet by posting this in his recent official GCDP Newsletter from Battleground Court:
.
MONDAY, MAY 11
Progressive Democrats of Guilford County
7 p.m.
Guilford County Democratic Party Headquarters, 7 Battleground Court, Greensboro
Note: Progressive Dems meet the second Monday of each month.
For more information, contact Nick Divitci at 315-5440 or itechg@gmail.com.
.
Now that fellow ComWorkers Lobbyist Doris Weaver is no longer Wake County Party Chair, Coley has challenged the new WCDP Chair Jack Nichols to a Race to the Bottom for the title: Most Progressive County Party in North Carolina!
______________________________
.
State Democratic Party Chair confirms Race to the Bottom: By steadfastly refusing to remove one single illegitimate Progressive Group from any NC Democratic County Party, new State Democratic Party Chair David Young signaled that the Challenge was “up and running” at 12:01 AM on his 101st Day as Chair.
.
“With this Challenge, we will prove to everyone that NC has the most Progressive of any County Democratic Parties in our Nation.” Carrying forth the Legacy of former State Chair Jerry Meek, Young declared himself to be “a true Jerry Meek Clone!”
.
“This Competition will return EXCITEMENT to NC politics in an off-year Election!” declared these Party Leaders. Nothing yet about entry of the huge Mecklenburg County Party, which already has in place 2 Progressive Units: Gray Newman’s Progressives Dems of Mecklenburg, and Concetta Caliendo’s MeckMobeGay Dems.
.
HOWEVER, since the State Democratic Party cannot show favoritism for one County Party over another, EVERY COUNTY PARTY and every Registered DEMOCRAT in NC is eligible to join this Challenge. Go to your local County Party Chair with names of 5 people or more (same as for Organizing a Precinct), and declare the NAME of your new Challenge Group. That’s it!
.
Your Challenge Group is now eligible for ALL the freebies Jerry Meek allowed for any Progressive Group during his Chairmanship: free meeting space at your County Party Headquarters, free use of phones, postage, computers, mailing lists, County Newsletter, and anything else you need to COMPETE with Progressive Groups across NC. Max out your opportunities! This precedent was set by former State Chair Jerry Meek, and is being carried forward by new State Chair David Young.
.
The following Group NAMES have been claimed in certain Counties, but Chapters may still be opened in yours: Progressive Democrats of ____ County; Greendog Democrats, L.G.B.T. Democrats; Progressive Democrats of North Carolina ____ County Chapter, MeckMobeGay Democrats.
.
Beyond that, the SKY’s the limit!! The ONLY requirement is that you include or imply the word “Democrats” in your name. To help get your creative juices flowing, the following suggested NAMES are open for selection. Or think up your own to fit the Ideology & Goals of your competitive Challenge Group!
.
REMEMBER: What’s in a name? First impressions are important!
Also that a Skunk Cabbage called a Rose still smells like skunk.

Email threat from Ruth Merkle

Because several Editions went out last week, this one has limited distribution to Wake County Democrats and a few other key Democrats across the State.  Primarily, because this is a Wake County Party Problem, I’m publicly asking new Chair Jack Nichols for assistance in resolving it.
.
I hope you had a grand time at the JJ Dinner on Saturday night.  Early this morning I found an Email from one of your Party Officers, Ruth Merkle.  I assume she was representing your Party, and had notified you that she was threatening to sue me for sending her information about the Democratic Party.  Ruth has been identified to me as being a sympathizer with the infamous Witches of Wake.
.
Ruth had written to NC Dems Network to have her Email address Removed after I wrote my letter to VA Gov Tim Caine, of which you all received a copy of.  Her address was removed as per her request.
.
But, apparently, Ruth has one or more other addresses coming into her computer.  The 2nd time she demanded to be Removed, she was told that the address she wrote from was not on the NC Dems Mailing list, and there was no way to determine how she was receiving Email unless she was willing to help us identify what address we were sending to.  Happens all the time whenever folks have multiple Email addresses coming into one computer, and especially worse in this day of secondary computers, like Blackberries.
.
Servicing the Mailing List now takes more time than writing Articles.  If Ruth cannot figure this out on her own, I’d recommend that you send someone — like Jerimee who understands how computers work — over to help her figure out hers.
.
Here’s a brief rundown of the background that lead up to the current crisis in Ruth’s life.
________________________________
On April 13th, Ruth wrote back to NC Dems Network for the first time with an mildly insulting remark. I wrote back to her from my personal computer, and she responded with some false statements that she believed were true.  She seemed to take great pride in stating that I lived in Virginia, as if it mattered where I lived.  An investigative journalist works from wherever he/she is. Ruth was implying that I had no right to speak about the NC Democratic Party if I was not part of it.  This was her first comment:  “Why is Gene Messick trashing NC Democrats when he lives in Virginia?
.
Had she read what has been sent to thousands across NC, she would know that I clearly stated I live in exile from my native State of North Carolina, where I had lived and voted a straight Democratic Ticket all my life, except when I taught at Cornell for 6 years, and now as I live in Virginia.  In 1972 while I was at Cornell, some fools in NC elected Jesse Helms to the US Senate, and kept doing it for 30 years, even tho I came back to help try to defeat him.  He retired after 5 terms of being Senator NO, an great embarrassment to NC.  Jesse — being the bigoted, racist homophobe that he was — decided to drop dead last Summer rather than live to see a black man become President.
.
I suddenly exported myself to Virginia almost 3 years ago, after NCDP 2nd VP Delmas Parker succeeded with Jerry Meek’s Plan to destroy my truth-telling by having his clones launch a sneak attack against my wife, firing her as Chair of the Rockingham Co Party.  I wonder if Delmas has ever gotten up the courage to admit to his wife, Sue, what he did.  Doubt it.  Delmas lives in a perpetual fog of Denial.
.
In Virginia, I registered as a Democrat, so that I would be able to vote in Election 2006. I was so pleased to be one of the 9,000+ plurality of Virginia voters who elected Jim Webb to the US Senate, which gave Democrats a majority in the Senate, allowing Congress to successfully roadblock some of GwB’s craziness during his final years.
.
And in 2008, I proudly voted for Obama, US Senator Mark Warner, and my Governor Tim Kaine.  Tim was chosen to replace Gov Howard Dean as Chair of the Democratic National Convention. He was also the Keynote Speaker at the Jefferson-Jackson Democratic Fundraiser Dinner held yesterday evening.
.
So.  There’s my VA connection again, for those, who like Ruth, managed to miss it before.
______________________
.
In the past three years since I was exiled from NC, not one time have I discussed ANYTHING about the NC Party with anyone there face to face, nor by phone.  It’s all done by the Internet, into a dispersed set of computers, all duplicated and now backed-up since loosing several address books by Progressive hackers.
.
I receive less than a dozen calls per month on my cell phone, total. Some months, none. I have it specifically to call for technical support whenever some Progressive tries to feed a virus into my computer.
.
I love doing all my investigations by Email, because everything is in writing.
______________________
.
Speaking of which, this is what Ruth Emailed to NC Democrats Network at 11:19:53 PM on May 2, 2009 from rmerkle@nc.rr.com:
.
THIS IS THE THIRD TIME I HAVE ASKED YOU TO REMOVE MY NAME FROM YOUR DISTRIBUTION LIST, AND YOU HAVE FAILED TO DO SO.   IF I CONTINUE TO RECEIVE YOUR EMAILS I WILL TAKE YOU TO COURT FOR HARRASSMENT.
YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN WORDS:
“This problem does not go away until it’s completely erased.”
RUTH MERKLE
______________________
.
My advice to Ruth, if she does not want to supply NC Dems Network with the alias she is hiding behind is this:  sue away, Ruth.  But do it soon.  Apparently my life is rapidly coming to an end, and you know how long these messy court cases take.  You can accelerate this process by Emailing me the name and Email address of your lawyer. Don’t bother with a phone number or snail mail address.  I never read letters from lawyers, nor call them.
______________________
.
So, Ruth:  this is the best I can do to help you “erase” your problem, until you decide to divulge what alias you are hiding under.  I really don’t care what you do, as long as you stop sending me false, harassing Emails.  My only comment to you is this, since I know your address is NOT on this list — but your alias is — and you will most likely, much to my sorrow, be receiving a copy of this.

Critical Info for your County Convention

.
Within the next 2 weeks, new leadership for the NC Democratic Party will be elected at statewide County Democratic Party Conventions. To find out when yours will be held, click on: http://ncdp.ncdponline.com/2009-NCDP-County-Conventions or contact NCDP Chair David Young at
.
If you care, be there. Every Registered Democrat is automatically a member of the County Party where you are registered. Even if you were not elected a Delegate at your Precinct Meeting, you can still 1) speak, 2) ask questions, 3) nominate other Candidates from the floor, and 4) eat free food. You cannot be charged a fee to attend, and you are not required to make a donation. It’s all free.
.
If you want Change you can believe in, Print-out this Email and take it with you. Here are questions you need Answers to, as a matter of Full and Fair Disclosure — the kind of Transparency which is often promised, but seldom delivered.
.
Q: Are you now, or have you ever been, a Member of any Progressive Organization?
.
Q: Are you now, or have you ever been, a Lobbyist? a Union Member or Officer?
.
Q: Have you ever been Registered to vote in any other Political Party or as an Independent? (This is a matter of Public Record, so don’t be afraid to ask.)
.
As a Registered Democrat, you have a right to Full and Fair Disclosure BEFORE any Candidate is elected to become an Officer in your County Party. Who are these people, anyway?
_________________________________
.
Here’s mine: I don’t care whether you elect Progressives or not. I’ll keep reporting what’s being done to your Democratic Party by whomever. But I do care that you know who you are voting for. Since it’s a Standard Deception of Progressives to hide their identities as they weasel into positions of Power and Control of your Party, here is your Check List of Members of Progressive Groups discovered thus far.
.
Goals of these Progressive Groups are to exclude Moderate and Conservative Democrats (ie, most Democrats) from decision-making, by covertly taking over Leadership roles in your Party. Here’s some color coding used in the Lists below, so you can count totals more easily:
.
# means this Progressive has already become a Member of NCDP State Executive Committee.
This color: PDA = Member of out-of-State PAC: Progressive Democrats of America
This color: Progressive Dems of NC or non-approved County Progressive Unit
Red highlights are for other positions held. (This means a current Candidate for Office.)

It’s difficult to determine — because there are no official definitions for any of these Progressive Groups — whether they are, or are not, attached to the County Parties in which they reside. These may include some or all of the following: Beaufort County Progressive Democrats, Buncombe County Progressive Democrats, Cumberland Progressive Democrats, Durham Stonewall Democrats, Eleventh District Progressive Democrats, Forsyth County Progressive Democrats, Gaston County Progressive Democrats, Guilford County Progressive Democrats, MeckMobeGay Democrats, Mecklenburg County Progressive Democrats, New Hanover Stonewall Democrats, Ninth District Progressive Democrats, Wake County Progressive Democrats.

Progressive Groups are relatively few, and their Members are only a tiny fraction of all NC Democrats. But they are loud, pushy, and organizing. Under 4 years of encouragement from former Chair Jerry Meek, Members of illegally formed Progressive Groups already comprise 10% of the State Executive Committee ( # ), which is sufficient to control SEC Meetings. Progressives intend to reshape a NC Democratic Party to exclude any who do not think like they think, or believe whatever Progressives may choose to believe at any point in time.
.
This is why the NCDP Plan of Organization specifically shuns any organization based upon ideology. Such groups — Progressive or otherwise — will ultimately weaken the Party, and render it ineffective in accomplishing the Party’s Prime Directive: Elect ALL Democrats who win their local Primaries.
.
Progressives loose Elections, because they have, and always will, push large numbers of Moderates and Conservatives out of the Democratic Party. When Progressives were called Liberals, they lost Elections in North Carolina for two long decades.

A long and twisted tale that wags the Democratic Party

Above are pictures of NC Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger celebrating “Tax Day Tea Party” on North Carolina’s Capitol Steps with his fellow Republicans in Raleigh on April 15th.
.
Phil is from Rockingham County. He Emails me his weekly Republican Party updates. His son, Phil Jr, is the District Attorney there. I’m a lifelong Democrat, never having knowingly voted for a Republican. I moved to Rockingham Co with my 22-year old stained glass business to live with Joyce Spear, a retired County Extension Agent. We were married beneath pear trees in her backyard in Eden, serving wine I had made from ripe pears the year before.
.
In January of 2006, I accepted an invitation from Schorr Johnson, then Communications Director for the State Party under NCDP Chair Jerry Meek, to attend a workshop in Lillington, to result in building a Website for the pitifully small RockCo Democratic Party. I went, and I did it. The computer program Schorr had chosen was free, except we had to pay an Instructor $120 per student. Because the system was incompetently and remotely moderated, it collapsed during a later Update by the Instructor. Turned out she was not an NCSU Professor of Computer Technology as we were told, but a Secretary in the Department, with glorified notions of her abilities, which Schorr bought, hook, line and sinker. But, we didn’t know that yet.
.
The Board of Elections in Rockingham Co was combining Precincts from 31 down to 19 to save money, and with my novice level of computer experience, I had just entered pages and pages of carefully constructed data so that our Dems in Rockingham could adjust to the complicated changes which would come upon us all too soon at the May Primary. I wanted to lose no voters because they were confused. Plus, we had to reorganize our Demo Party Precincts within entirely new boundaries: 31 Precincts reduced to 19.
.
The Instructor’s remotely installed Program Upgrade scrambled all data in March. I complained bitterly to the Google Group, which was established for us 2-dozen Webmasters scattered across the State, to self-teach ourselves how to use this monster. I demanded that the earlier Version be restored until the new one was fixed. All our Pages were online, and most folks were getting only garbage when they linked on. The computer program was a jury-rigged, home-made thing, chosen by Schorr because it was free.
.
My Website was restored. Except: ALL — every bit — of my data was lost by the Instructor. I had to start all over again, not knowing I should have backed up anything. All this was documented to the Group, which embarrassed Schorr for his incompetence, and he eventually lost his job. After the Group collapsed, I sent Emails to hundreds of Dems in RockCo, with copies to NCDP Chair Jerry Meek. When I posted an explanation on the Website, Jerry immediately had our Website destroyed, wiped off the face of the Earth forever. Every appeal to restore it was ignored.
.
I continued sending Emails to a growing number of Dems across NC about the whole fiasco, not knowing how many County Parties were affected. I began to get reports back about other, unrelated problems in Jerry Meek’s Administration. I began assembling these into Newsletters, and circulation grew statewide.
__________________________
.
Meanwhile, locally, I organized a Plan to defeat Republican Phil Berger Sr as our State Senator. He’s a popular lawyer in Eden, where I had begun making gardens around our home. Although Rockingham Co had more registered Dems than Repubs, obviously some Dems were causing Phil to be re-elected, time after time. Using the Precinct Reorganization as a basis, I planed to pull together enough Democratic votes to bring Phil back home from the Senate.
.
Our State House Representative was a strong Democrat, so I knew it could be done. The recently elected County Chair decided to run against Phil, and so had to step down as Chair. My wonderful wife who had spearheaded the local Campaign for Kerry-Edwards in Rockingham after a neighbor Superior Court Judge asked her to — raising more money for Campaign materials than the local Party raised all year — was elected to be replacement Chair at the April County Convention 3 years ago, which was one of the best attended in a decade because of the work we did organizing the County Party.
.
By then, Jerry and Schorr were sending out lies to cover what they had done. I intercepted two Emails from Schorr, which said Jerry ordered everyone to ignore whatever I wrote: telling them that I was crazy. Being “crazy” is the ONLY defense sociopaths have when caught with their pants down. You can read more about sociopaths in NC politics here: “She’s a Whack Job!” said the sociopaths.
.
Jerry’s Progressive Defenders went into Overdrive. Several tried at different times to have my Internet service cancelled. At least one virus was launched which destroyed my Address Book. NCDP 2nd Vice Chair Delmas Parker started working covertly by phone with a twice-ago former RockCo Chair Dick Cartwright — who had led the RockCo Party through years of defeat — to pressure me to shut up about Jerry. At the time, I had no idea how truly rotten Jerry was, nor to what lengths he would go in order to cover his tracks. But I refused to stop reporting what he was doing as it was discovered, fooling myself into believing that Jerry would soon straighten up and fly right. I had no idea at the time how much Jerry and his minions planned to corrupt the Party by planting Progressive Groups across the State.
.
In June the semi-annual State Executive Committee Meeting was held in nearby High Point, attended by over 600 Democrats from all County Parties. I had to teach a Stained Glass Workshop that weekend in Stokes County, so did not go. My wife (Chair Joyce) went with Dick and SEC Member Pat Morris, both Sat and Sun. Monday was the normal RockCo monthly Party Meeting.
.
Because I was exhausted from two days on my feet (and I didn’t want my conflict with Jerry to detract from Joyce’s Meeting), I stayed home. However, I did bake my first two loaves of zucchini bread from my garden in Eden, on phone instructions from Joyce from work, and sent them with her to the Meeting. For the 14-year Democratic DA who arrived late from the Courthouse, they served as a bite of supper. She was defeated by Republican Phil Berger Jr in the aftermath from collapse of the RockCo Party, another casualty when Jerry and Delmas fired Joyce as RockCo Party Chair.
.
Because I was not there, Dick and Pat saw their opportunity to accomplish Delmas’ goal: to shut me up by publicly disgracing my wonderful wife. Dick moved, Pat seconded, that Joyce step down “because she had a conflict of interest,” a term supplied to him by Delmas. Later that night, Joyce described everything that happened at the Meeting — except that she was fired. Only on the next morning as she ran out of the house for work, 11 hours later, did she tell me. So thoroughly embarrassed by her public thrashing, the after-shock trauma sent her into a complete emotional collapse.
.
I immediately called Cartwright, to find out what happened, and why he had not come to us privately if he thought there was any problem. He admitted he had been coached by Delmas for months, and that his instructions from Lawyer Jerry thru Delmas at the SEC Meeting the day before were for maximum public disgrace, so I would never be able to criticize Jerry again.
.
At 10:30 that night, I was evicted from my home and business by 2 armed Sheriff’s deputies. I was told the Clerk of Court could authorize my re-entry to get business records. Next day, the Clerk whom I had helped elect, said that was a lie, and if I tried, I’d be jailed. He also promised I’d be appointed a lawyer to defend me, another lie. A week later, the day after Independence Day, an anonymous Judge in an empty Rockingham Co Courtroom stole all the business and personal property I owned in NC.
.
Now nearly 3 years ago, not one single item has ever been returned. I was never charged with anything. I was never convicted of anything. I was never told what this closed hearing was for, nor what it’s consequences could be. I was told, repeatedly, that if I attempted to save my business, I’d be thrown in jail. Now living in poverty, I cannot afford a lawyer. To this day, DA Phil Berger Jr refuses to prosecute any of the many thieves involved. Thousands now know this story, including everyone in the State Legislature, those who passed whatever law was used to “legalize” this larceny.
___________________________________
.
Jerry and Delmas failed miserably to shut me up. By destroying my business, leaving me with nothing to occupy my time, I have used time and learned computer skills effectively to uncover more of Jerry’s corruption of the Party. And it is massive.
.
Here are additional results of Jerry’s Plan to save himself at the expense of the Party. The Rockingham Co Democratic Party never recovered. Their website link posted for years on the NCDP Website never connected to anything. Rockingham County went unusually RED in 2008.
.
Jerry Meek effectively destroyed any chance of defeating Phil Berger Sr, and guaranteed election of Phil Jr. Jerry Meek is the first Democratic Chair of the State Party to singlehandedly reelect a Republican Senate Minority Leader. As I’ve written a dozen times over, Jerry Meek is the best friend the Republican Party ever had, for this and his other failures. And this week, Phil Berger Sr appeared — stronger than ever — on the State Capitol steps. Phil’s Plan is to be inside the Capitol’s Governor’s Office in 2012. And it was Jerry Meek who greased the inside track for Phil to get there.
.
Phil stood there at the Tax Day Tea Party as a Monument to Jerry Meek’s foolish and incompetent leadership. Jerry wasted his 4 years of Opportunity building his Cadre of Personal Progressive Body Guards and Hit Men — launching an undeclared Progressive War on his own Party — instead of doing his job to defeat Republicans — the only job which he was elected to do.
.
If new State Chair David Young does not immediately eject every improperly formed Progressive Group from the Party, then you can count on the next decade in North Carolina belonging to Republicans.

Progressives love to strut and brag that THEY elected Jerry, and that THEY elected Obama. For bringing him to power Jerry repaid them by allowing and encouraging unsanctioned Progressive Groups to silently invade and attach themselves to County Parties. These dozen Progressive Groups are the illegitimate bastards Jerry sired. NOT one of them is a legitimate Auxiliary born of the State Democratic Party. Jerry moved County Party Chairs into covert Rebellion against the State Party, as many as he could find, spending Democratic Party money to crisscross the State time and time again. By giving away control of the Party to select County Chairs, Jerry committed the equivalent of treason against the Party he was elected to protect and serve.
.
In reality, Progressive Groups had a negative effect on Election 2008. Hoping to swing NC to BLUE, Obama spent millions in NC on TV, visits, and staffing 50 Campaign Offices across NC, because Jerry’s NC Democratic Party could not be counted on to deliver the votes. Jerry’s Progressives pushed more Moderate, Conservative and Unaffiliated Voters into McCain’s Column than they attracted to Obama’s. Progressive Delusions to the contrary, the numbers don’t lie.
.
There are 800,000 MORE registered Dems than Repubs in NC, and nearly double that registered as Unaffiliated. And yet, NC only went pale Blue in Election 2008 — only by 14,177 votes out of over 5 MILLION cast for President. The total number of Progressives I could find — after 2 years of searching to list them in Edition 106-B — was less than 300. Progressives preached only to themselves, bragging loudly, but converting no one from McCain to Obama. Progressives form the greatest Mutual Admiration Society that ever existed, living fully in a constant State of Denial.
.
And if Progressive Groups are allowed to spread their divisiveness and dissension within the Party– turning Democrat against Democrat — NC will not only lose in Election 2010, but it will go back to being a RED State in 1012.
.
Be sure you understand that Republicans read these Editions. I shall continue to write them until my fellow Democrats decide it’s time to stop shooting themselves in both feet. Tell your new State NCDP Chair David Young what you want done. He’s the only hope you’ve got. DYoung@ncdp.org
