TO THE EDITOR:

Having lived a rather lengthy life, under both Republican and Democratic Governors, while also having voted for both Republican and Democrats (back before Democrats went from centrists to the far left), it amazes me the comments I read from those whose obvious resource is purely the fake news main stream media.

Listening this morning to the signing of the riot bill, by Gov. Ron DeSantis in Florida, it also amazes me that anyone would prefer living under and voting for, Democratic leadership, watching their cities and homes burned, being harassed by rioters, having their taxes raised to pay for what these criminals have done, along with subsidizing illegal aliens, etc. etc.

When facts are shown by factual resources like John Locke's Carolina Journal or Tom Fitton's Verdict, One America News or NewsMax, just comparing their substance against that of the main stream media, it becomes so obvious which side manipulates or omits their sources to reflect not the truth but their anti-American agenda.

Most confusing is the animosity against President Trump, who as a businessman, was and is far more knowledgeable to make deals for our country, instead of the typical political hacks, that apologize for our being the greatest country on earth. That to rectify the poor Democratic leadership, he gave up his lucrative lifestyle to give back to his country, losing billions of his existing assets, giving up $1.6 million of his presidential salary, losing the chance to grow his assets by billions, all while performing better than any president in many decades.

While performing above and beyond, all while being accused of faux accusations, while the real criminals of Hillary's past debacles, and now the crooked dealings of Joe and Son, making millions off of enemy countries, that they are now endowed to. While the main stream media provided made-up stories to negate President Trump, they totally ignored Joe and Son's crooked antics, to hide these facts from far too many voters that obviously have to plead "ignorant" of all facts.

So, lastly having been forced to move from the liberal run states of New Jersey and Virginia to North Carolina, unless citizens of this state wake up and elect those that lead for their citizens instead of their own power goals, if Gov. DeSantis remains governor of Florida, I guess that will be my next stop.

That about sums it up.

Well said, Mr. Coastal Guy. In the past couple of months, I have talked to my wife about moving out of NC and back to Florida, where I lived for eight years.

Being born and raised in NC, I moved back here after I retired and always wanted to live on the Crystal Coast.

But Coop has changed NC and the Democratic Party is not what it was during JFK times. It has transformed into a far-left monster.

Trump may need to mend his personality, but being president should not be a popularity contest. I truly believe he loves this country and wants to see Everyone thrive and prosper, not just big business.

The liberal media believes that the majority of folks will more easily fall for a big lie rather than a small one. So they lie big!

I’m not backing Biden. I am not going to give him a chance. I don’t owe it to him, actually, he owes it to me and he should understand that half of the country doesn’t trust him or like him.

Biden is an easy target. I’ve never liked the guy and I’ve never found his gaffes to be funny…...just stupid. As Biden and his staff continue to Circle Back, it’s us little folks that pay the price.

Hopefully a conservative Lt Gov will land in that seat next so don't move yet.

There is nothing praiseworthy about Trump denying the presidential salary. He denied it, as any billionaire would, because the salary represents earned income, which is detrimental to their income tax avoidance strategies. While $400,000 is significant compared to NC’s average yearly salary of $41,000, it is absolutely nothing to a billionaire. It can be difficult to fathom the difference between $400,000 and 1 billion. It’s the same as someone leaving a $0.04 (that’s 4 cents) tip for a $100 restaurant tab.

Alot of people recently love to 'speculate'. Wish they had a shred of evidence on anything they say. Here , this is more plausible, Since Trump was found to be a Russian Spy , he knew that if he took money from America, Russia would investigate and charge him when he returned to Moscow! [whistling]

Taxpayers still got quite a deal. $4 for 4 years of service. Doesn’t matter to me if it helped him at tax time with his personal taxes.

So what is your point?? Tipping is passe - the restaurants cannot survive any more government rule can they? Why not a small business tax holiday to recover the Governors 1st degree damage to this defenseless business.

There's also the PR payoff.

Trump's base ate up his appearance of generosity, whilst ignoring his various scams. For example, the court closing down that Trump Foundation and fining him 2 million bucks for misappropriating the foundation's funds.

Meanwhile, the Clinton Foundation continues to be highly rated by various charity watchdogs.

There are many in this world that turn a blind eye to the riots and say they are just peaceful demonstrations. Then there are us that know better.

#1 Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich: Policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist. I am done with those who condone government-funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can't be reformed.

#2 Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene Files Legislation to Award Gold Medals to All Police who Protect America from Black Lives Matter Domestic Terrorists.

Uh, I go with #2.

However, Greene’s proposal, which has also been cosponsored by Republican Reps. Yvette Herrell and Andy Harris, comes almost one month after she and 11 other Republicans in Congress voted against awarding medals to three officers for defending the U.S. Capitol during the January 6 insurrection. Greene stated that she did not agree with the use of the word “insurrectionists” to describe the white supremacists who stormed the Capitol, but unsurprisingly, has confidently claimed anti-racism protestors to be “terrorists.”
