Pittsboro, NC – On Saturday we will celebrate the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Most of us know the opening lines, but not all realize how exceptional it truly is.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Declaration of IndependenceThese are extraordinary words to use to birth a new nation. America was not to be defined by shared ethnicity, common heritage, or social class, but by an ideology. Just think about that. Our founders based an entire nation on the idea that we are all equal and have God given rights that cannot be taken away by laws created by governments. They believed it so strongly that they declared this was not even open for discussion. No polling or further explanation necessary because it was self-evident!

We have not always lived up to the promise of these words. The shortcomings, however, were not the fault of the ideology or our foundation. On the contrary, it is the very strength of the American ideology and our founding documents that enable us to make corrections within the framework of law rather than revolution.

In addition to being a statement of principles through which our Constitution should be interpreted (as believed by Abraham Lincoln), it has inspired millions throughout the world to promote personal liberty and to fight against tyranny.

It might be out of fashion to believe in American Exceptionalism, but the fact is, we are an exceptional country and we were founded on exceptional principles. On Saturday, let’s remember the ideology embodied in our Declaration of Independence and celebrate the exceptional country we have been blessed to inherit.

Happy 4th of July and May God Bless America!

Brian Bock is chairman of the Chatham County, NC GOP

Raleigh, NC – The purpose of this article is to delineate, one step at a time, the provisions of HB 836 that open the door to enterprise-level vote fraud. The Reasonable Impediment Declaration (or Determination or R-I-D for short) law that enables voting by people with last-minute problems obtaining their ID. The North Carolina Voter Integrity Project (VIP-NC) fully supports the underlying concept, but we also believe in an old maxim: Trust but Verify“Trust, but verify.”

This article pulls together all of our relevant findings so that, you, the informed citizen, can discern the details of this bill that need to be fixed. You can click on each “Reason” (below) to see the details on a certain problem and our proposed way to fix it.

Background

The North Carolina Voter Integrity Project (VIP-NC) sounded the alarm on this bill soon after it was rushed through both NCGA chambers and sent to the Governor. Some of VIP-NC’s initial rhetoric was harsh, but VIP-NC stands by the underlying facts. Later, VIP-NC pulled up their sleeves to figure out how to “unscrew” the rushed legislation.

Below are VIP’s relevant links.

See the actual bill, by clicking here (scroll down to page 6)

Our original alarm message on HB 836

Our first “Intel Response” on HB 836 (Explaining and accepting the need for emergency legislation)

Charlotte Observer Editorial (confirming VIP position that HB 836 killed voter ID in NC)

Reason One – The law should equip election boards for validating the RID voter.

Reason Two – Using the DOB & SSN-4 are optional, but should be mandatory.

Reason three – The fake ID known as “HAVA ID”

Reason four – The false assurance of a sworn affidavit.

Pittsboro, NC – Tucked amongst the pines and winding back-roads of Chatham County sits Haw River Christian Academy, a private classical Christian school (and member of the Association of Classical Christian Schools)  that currently serves junior kindergartners through tenth graders. The quiet, picturesque surroundings belie the exciting environment that exists behind the unassuming front doors. While still a small school of approximately 65 students, Haw River Christian Academy has grown steadily since its inception in 2007. The school has added one grade level each scholastic year, with its first graduating class set to don cap and gown in 2018.

Academic grade levels are not the only additions the school has seen since moving to their spacious new home at Emmaus Baptist Church in 2013. Students enjoy an abundance of opportunities to enrich their artistic sides through the school’s much-loved art and music programs. For the 2015-2016 school year, HRCA will be offering students the option to participate in a Suzuki Strings Program (the only program of its kind in Chatham County), Drama Club and Club Sports Teams, as well as continuing such tried-and-true favorites as Chess club and Lego League.

Haw River Christian Academy teachersThe summer months aren’t without fun either, as HRCA looks forward to its second year of summer camp programming. The popularity of last year’s camp sessions led to the addition of even more offerings to this year’s three week line-up which kicks off July 20th. Camp programs are open to any family looking for an educational, safe and active learning experience for their school-aged children and are taught by Haw River Christian Academy teachers, parents and community members who are enthusiastic about sharing their skills and special interests with eager campers.

“I am especially excited about our camps this year,” said Heather Baker, 6th Grade teacher at Haw River Christian Academy and summer camp instructor. “HRCA is such a wonderful, uniquely supportive environment and it’s so great to watch this camaraderie spill over into all the camp courses, too. We joke that this kindness is the only “Common Core”  you’ll find at the school. We have sport camps, sewing, science and veterinary camps, a Latin camp, a “Mock Trial” camp and so many more. There really is something for everyone!”

This year will also be the second annual Haw River Triathlon, a family-friendly event that will be held on August 29 at Camp Royall. This multi-sport event aims to educate children in proper exercise and training skills that will ideally become life-long habits. Children aged 4-18 can participate within their own age groups, or parents and children may team up together for the biking, swimming and off-road running course. The event is an enjoyable, supportive and friendly environment for participants to try their hands (and feet!) at triathlon competition.

“The triathlon is probably the school event most dear to my heart,” said Rebecca Ridge, HRCA parent, co-President of the school’s Parent-Teacher Fellowship and triathlon coordinator. “We get to promote physical health and fitness while enjoying fun fellowship with school families and members of the surrounding community. It’s also an important fund-raising opportunity for the school- definitely a “win-win-win.” for everyone involved!.”

With a constantly expanding schedule of summer activities and an impressive school-year academic program, Haw River Christian Academy is quickly turning from a “little school that could” to a “little school that IS.” For more information about HRCA or to view and register for their July and August camps, please visit www.hawriverchristian.org.

Pittsboro, NC – At the Monday, June 22 meeting of the Pittsboro Board of Commissioners, I heard much of the same unsubstantiated implied accusations of corruption of the Pittsboro board members concerning the Chatham Park development by Pittsboro Matters members that Virginia Penley did.  More than one of them brought up the four points: 1) support was made under some sort of duress;  2) a complete failure to understand what was happening; 3) something was discussed behind closed doors, which is illegal; and/or 4) corruption. And of those that did, almost everyone stated that the kickbacks – always option number 4 – was illegal, stated as if they personally had uncovered evidence of that.

I put it down to adults acting like little kids throwing a temper tantrum because they weren’t getting their way, but those were pretty strong implied accusations.

The audio stream you mentioned – the official town record – can be found here.

The video I did of the meeting is not the official record; it’s just one citizen’s recording. There is no editing other than to remove pre- and post-meeting noise. The video is available for viewing on YouTube –

Pittsboro Matters claims 600 members, which is only about 15 per cent of the town’s population.  I know at least one of those 600 “members” is someone who signed up just to get their newsletters so as to more easily keep track of their claims and activities, not because I, uh, I mean he, agrees with them. I am sure there are others.

The claim by one member that he knows of no native born Pittsboro resident that is for Chatham Park just means he only talks within his small circle of cronies. I know a local business owner who lived in Pittsboro since she was born that said she just wished those trust fund babies would give up and let others have some of the good life and the jobs that Chatham Park will bring.
