Chris Anglin: Fraud


Late candidacy could help Democrats win N.C. Supreme Court race
The Associated Press | Jul 5, 2018

RALEIGH — A last-minute candidacy has the potential to dilute Republican votes this fall for a North Carolina Supreme Court seat and boost chances for the Democrats to expand their majority on the court.

Raleigh attorney Chris Anglin filed on the last available day last week as a registered Republican to run for the seat held by another Republican, Associate Justice Barbara Jackson, who is seeking re-election. Civil rights lawyer Anita Earls is running as a Democrat.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Anglin actually was a registered Democrat until he changed his voter affiliation in early June, a couple weeks before the judicial candidate filing period began.

Perry Woods @WhalerCane
Yep. He is running to put the elephant back into the GOP because their leaders have forgotten what it is to be conservative Constitutional Republicans who like Ronald Reagan, believed we should stand up to the Russians, not side with them against our own government. #ncpol

(((Pete Kaliner))) @PeteKaliner
I know that’s your crafted boilerplate language designed to address the charge without obviously lying (which might create some issues with the Bar).
Tell us – what was Anglin’s view on the GOP platform?
The Democrat Platform?

Perry Woods @WhalerCane
Are you okay with what is going on today? What would Ronald Reagan say about what POTUS just did? Is that part of GOP platform? Definitely not my Dad’s GOP. #ncpol #PuttheElephantbackintoGOP

(((Pete Kaliner))) @PeteKaliner
Anglin’s candidacy has nothing to do with Trump.
You’re smarter than that.
You apparently don’t believe I (or GOP voters) are, though.
Which is sorta’ the hallmark of the Anglin candidacy.

Perry Woods @WhalerCane
You are avoiding the question.Candidacy has everything to do with the assault on the checks & balances & the rule off law that has been happening on both the federal & state level enabled by GOP leadership. Trumps behavior today emblematic of that.Plenty GOP R appalled.U?#ncpol

(((Pete Kaliner))) @PeteKaliner
I reject it as irrelevant. Trump is not the NC Supreme Court – no matter how you’d like to nationalize the race in order to help Earls.
A Democrat.
Who you call “the good guys.”

(((Pete Kaliner))) @PeteKaliner
Further, you are appealing to GOP voters to support Anglin as a way to register disapproval of #NCGA leadership.
But he’ll be voting with Democrats’ and their judicial philosophy on all other issues.
It’s what makes y’all liars on this.

(((Pete Kaliner))) @PeteKaliner
You want GOP voters to support Anglin for a single issue – knowing that if he wins (a very long shot) he’s another vote with the Democratic majority on the court.
As I said… you should just stop trying to defend this as an honest campaign.

Chris Anglin: The Democrat in GOP Clothing

Republicans’ Latest Judicial Power Grab May Have Backfired Spectacularly
By Mark Joseph Stern | July 17, 2018
In 2016, Democrat Mike Morgan won a hotly contested seat on North Carolina’s state Supreme Court, flipping the court to a 4–3 liberal majority. Ever since, Republicans in the state have engaged in a great deal of chicanery to prevent Democrats from winning another seat in 2018. For a while, they appeared destined to succeed. But a last-minute twist may thwart their carefully laid plans, allowing yet another progressive Democrat to flip a Republican-held seat in the November election…

Lawmakers pass bill to remove party label from 1 Republican
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A law passed by the General Assembly would result in one of two Republicans running for the state Supreme Court would no longer be labeled a Republican on the ballot. “This was a real fraud on the people of the state of North Carolina that we could fix while we were here,” said Sen. Ralph Hise (R-47th)…


Democrats surrender high ground in fights over election changes
Mitch Kokai | July 31, 2018
…But because of quirks in this year’s election process, attributable to Republican legislators’ earlier efforts, a third name appears on the ballot. Longtime Democrat Chris Anglin changed his voter registration to Republican in June. He filed for the Supreme Court race on the last possible day. He has since hired well-known Democratic political operative Perry Woods to help him wage his campaign. It’s clear to any fair-minded observer that — regardless of Anglin’s original intent — elements within the Democratic Party have latched onto Anglin’s candidacy as a tool to help blunt Jackson’s vote among Republican voters. Their ultimate goal is to help ensure Earls’ victory…

Resolute Free Press | July 16, 2018
Despite repeatedly claiming he is not a “Democrat Plant,” Anglin’s campaign Facebook page posted that suggests his candidacy can help Democrat candidate Anita Earls get onto the Supreme Court…

City Council and APD

City Council Meeting Agenda
Regular Meeting
May 22, 2018 – 5:00 p.m.
Council Chamber – 2nd Floor – City Hall

Tribune report:

“Kapoor blew the whistle again. For the third time in two weeks, council members were being blindsided by a request for a vote on an item that was not on the formal agenda, thus keeping members of the public in the dark; had not been vetted by staff, thus providing council with only one side of the issue; and had not been run through the committee process, thus preventing resolution of conflicting datasets. Wisler concurred; due process required noticing the public of potential changes in policy and inviting them to speak on the topics.”


“When Manheimer asked if council wanted to table the matter until their June meeting, Young said, ‘I will not make a motion to lay on the table.’ He said if members of council did not like the measures he had proposed, they could vote against them. ‘Call the question!’ he ordered. ‘You-you don’t want public comment?’ asked the mayor. Young shook his head no. ‘Oh-ka-ay,’ said the mayor hesitantly. Council then rashly approved all three measures, with only Kapoor and Wisler voting in opposition.”


Young: (referring to his 3 motions) “This side is action”

City Council drives through policing changes

“Young cut debate and public comment on his proposals short by calling the question, a parliamentary motion that brings an issue up for immediate vote. While Robert’s Rules of Order, the procedural manual used by Council, requires such a move to be approved by a two-thirds majority vote or unanimous consent, no such vote took place.”

Kapoor issues statement on policing changes

Pete’s Prep: Wednesday, May 23, 2018

“Indeed, the Council and the Mayor rushed to adopt the new rules without public input, as Councilman Keith Young ‘called the question’ – which is a parliamentary rule that shuts off debate and forces a vote.”

LTE: District Elections

Dear Asheville Daily Planet,

Municipal district elections are coming to Asheville. This voting method separates the city into six geographical areas for electing six city council members. Candidates must reside in their separate districts and be elected by voters from that district. The mayor will still be elected by all of the city. District elections are all about regional representation, increased democracy, and decentralization in city politics.

A law requiring this election method for Asheville was passed by the state legislature in June. Senate Bill 285 mandates that the city change its charter by November 1st to provide for election districts starting with the 2019 elections.

On Tuesday, July 25, Asheville City Council voted to place a referendum on the ballot that purports to allow the voters of Asheville to decide the matter. This is a ruse. You are being lied to. This issue has already been decided by law and a vote against it would only be used to manufacture evidence for a court challenge in a desperate play to maintain the status quo by a few. Senate Bill 285 is clear and in no way allows the results of a local referendum to take precedent over legislation passed by the General Assembly.

Game Plan 2017

Can anyone spot the fatal flaws in this Democrat strategy?

NC Democrat Party Pipeline Project
The Pipeline Project is the North Carolina Democratic Party’s new program to recruit, train, and support candidates running for local office in the 2017 Special Election.

Court Order
It is ORDERED that: 1. The General Assembly of the State of North Carolina is given the opportunity to draw new House and Senate district plans for North Carolina House Districts 5, 7, 12, 21, 24, 29, 31, 32, 33, 38, 42, 43, 48, 57, 58, 60, 99, 102, and 107; and Senate Districts 4, 5, 14, 20, 21, 28, 32, 38, and 40, through and until 5 p.m. on March 15, 2017.

NC Legislators Serving In the 28 Districts



(1) The 28 districts to be redrawn are all Democrat districts, except one. If they are redrawn in any way similar to existing districts, only the Democrat incumbents will have to run for re-election. Are the Democrats recruiting candidates to challenge their own incumbents?

(2) It is the Republicans that will have the task of drawing new maps for 27 Democrat districts and 1 Republican district. The Republican majority is not going to draw themselves out of power. If anything, Republicans will draw new maps that will result in picking up seats.

The Strained Relationship Between The News & Observer and Facts
Sister Toldjah | American Lens | November 23, 2016
With all the talk about “fake news” as of late, as well as the credibility hit the mainstream media took in the aftermath of the surprise victory of Donald Trump, you’d think news outlets would be taking concrete steps to make improvements in the accuracy of their reporting. Restoring the trust between readers and journalists by reporting the facts would be a priority, one might conclude. Such doesn’t seem to be the case with the Raleigh News and Observer (N&O).
