North Carolina State Sen. Chuck Edwards (R) unseated Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) in the state’s 11th congressional district primary. Dave Wasserman, the House editor of the Cook Political Report, reported that Cawthorn lost his renomination to state Sen. Edwards. Cawthorn faced increasing attacks from the left and establishment media outlets over many issues ... “I’ve really never seen the swamp launch such a coordinated attack against any individual in politics except for Donald Trump,” Cawthorn said in reaction to the attacks against him. Former Texas Gov. and Trump Energy Secretary Rick Perry endorsed Edwards during the 11th congressional district primary.

I don't know much about this one - just that I've seen some very negative and seemingly unsavory stuff going on with Cawthorn. Explainable or truly a witch hunt? Anybody got the short & to the point version? Who's Edwards, and who is the Dem for the election? If Cawthorn is dirty - why the fuss?

Cawthorn lost because the Republican Establishment didn’t like him airing the party members’ dirty laundry for all to see. I have no doubt that Republican leadership made sure this was a loss for Cawthorn…however they had to do it.

you can bet that if Sen Thom Tillis endorses a primary candidate over a Trump endorsed incumbent, the Tillis candidate is going to be a RINO. Then throw in ex Senator Burr's endorsement and thats 2 strikes against the MAGA candidate. Then throw in the RINO leadership of the NC General Assembly's support and you know for dayum sure why they want that establishment candidate over a Trumpster. Tillis and Burr are all in for the GOPe.

Cawthorn lost when things were brought up about issues dealing with him personally because he bucked the GOPe/RINO party and the RNC in general and the PACs and how they work. #2 nails it! When he ran his initial campaign, they crap they send out to get donations to "fund conservative candidates" proved to be only supporting the RINO candidates-- The charge Cawthorn made at that time, still holds true! We have LOST the Republican Party as it existed that we still believe is somehow "different" from the other parties. At the local level, this is still somewhat true. At the State and National level, the $$$$$ of big donors, and lobbying interests have TAKEN CONTROL. Don't fool yourself by going along with this charade any longer. When $40 BILLION DOLLARS is sent to Ukraine and only a VERY FEW "republican" Senators don't demand accountability for how many hands the graft goes through and the many hands out to get money, then it is a telling and condeminng sign that there really isn't much difference in the parties-- BOTH are willing to spend U.S. into oblivion. Cawthorn called them out and there is so much pressure to just "go along and play the game" and get rich off of the largesse of government.

There is something about this Cawthorne kid that makes me uneasy probably surfaced during his VERY brief marriage. Yes he was smeared during the campaign but those unseemly photos look real.

I hate that I even have to write this article given my distaste for Dr. Mehmet Oz. It’s my opinion that Kathy Barnette has crossed a line in Pennsylvania, and we need to talk about it. Barnette, who is running for the GOP Senate nomination in the state, has been locked in a fierce battle with Oz and Dave McCormick, the latter of whom has moved into third place in most polls. Now, she’s letting it be known that she will not support any of the other Republicans if she loses the primary. This is a big red flag ...

Inflation rose again in April, continuing a climb that has pushed consumers to the brink and is threatening the economic expansion, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Wednesday. The consumer price index, a broad-based measure of prices for goods and services, increased 8.3% from a year ago, higher than the Dow Jones estimate for an 8.1% gain. Removing volatile food and energy prices, so-called core CPI still rose 6.2%, against expectations for a 6% gain. Inflation has been the single biggest threat to a recovery that began early in the pandemic and saw the economy in 2021 stage its biggest single-year growth level since 1984.

Portuguese prosecutors issued a statement on Thursday: “As part of the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in 2007, a person was made a suspect on Wednesday.” In 2020, German police named Brueckner as a person of interest for the first time in connection with the case.

Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing. Visitor logs from the White House of former President Barack Obama reviewed by The Post cast further doubt over Joe Biden’s claims that he knew nothing of his son’s dealings. Eric Schwerin met with Vice President Biden on November 17, 2010 in the West Wing, when he was the president of the since-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners. The logs also reveal that Schwerin met with various close aides of both Joe and Jill Biden ...

But two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the matter told Fox News Digital that Bonola was in the country in violation of immigration law. Details of whether he entered the U.S. legally were not immediately available.

Prices that consumers pay on everyday items surged in March to their highest levels since the early days of the Reagan administration, according to Labor Department data released Tuesday. The consumer price index, which measures a wide-ranging basket of goods and services, jumped 8.5% from a year ago on an unadjusted basis, above even the already elevated Dow Jones estimate for 8.4%. Excluding food and energy, the CPI increased 6.5%, in line with the expectation. The data reflected price increases not seen in the U.S. since the stagflation days of the late 1970s and early ’80s.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who President Biden nominated to the Supreme Court to become the first ever Black female justice, admitted Tuesday that she could not recall the basis for the infamous Dred Scott decision, which in 1857 said that a Black person whose ancestors had been slaves could not be an American citizen. The case came up during Jackson’s confirmation hearing on Tuesday, when she faced questioning from Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. Cornyn brought up the concept of substantive due process, a legal doctrine utilized to expand the Constitution’s due process clause to protect various rights not enumerated in the Constitution.

President Joe Biden will nominate federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Friday to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, which would make her the first black woman on the high court's bench should she be confirmed by the Senate. Breyer announced his retirement last month after 28 years on the Supreme Court, effective when the current term ends this summer. That paved the way for Biden to fulfill his 2020 campaign promise of nominating a black woman as a Supreme Court justice.

For the last couple of weeks, my parish has had a woman speak after the mass ended pleading for support for a crisis pregnancy center. I recognized the speaker as the head of a pro-life local group that I had once joined years ago. My first involvement was a peaceful protest in front of Rep. Susan Molinari's district office and her voting record did not sit well with this woman. When I heard her yell through a mega phone that G od would punish Molinari for supporting abortion, that ended my connection with this group. Let me be very clear, I am forever pro-life.

The company at the center of a baby formula crisis could face criminal charges, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday, as Democrats considered new government controls over the baby formula industry. “I think there might be a need for indictment,” said Mrs. Pelosi, who has realigned the House agenda to address a baby formula shortage. Democrats are also considering legislation that would give the federal government more control over the supply and distribution of formula, particularly when shortages arise. The plan would require formula companies to report inventory to the Food and Drug Administration, which could then move supplies from one state to another to fill empty shelves.
