    We have witnessed a lot of wailing and hand-wringing from #NeverTrumpers about the death of conservatism in the "age" of Trump.  Never mind that eight years is hardly an "age," and that's the maximum Trump can spend as president.

    On April 16, 2018, the Durham North Carolina City Council passed the “Israel Resolution” making Durham the first city in the United States to boycott police training specifically with Israel. This took place even though Durham conducted no police training with Israel, and had no plans to do so.

    Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These are some of the unalienable rights bestowed on us by our Creator. Life is the most important right because without it, the other rights don't matter or exist. Someone needs to remind North Carolina Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper of these unalienable rights.

    Last month, the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill held a conference on its campus called “Conflict over Gaza: People, Politics, and Possibilities." According to its website, it:
    ...will shed much needed light on the current realities in the Gaza Strip, giving participants a deeper understanding of the context of these realities and offering concrete options that can better the lives of Gazans. The conference also highlights Gazan culture–music, films, food, and art–to showcase the beauty that goes along with the challenges of life in the Gaza Strip.

    A Wake County Superior Court judge in North Carolina has written a ruling so outlandish that state Democrats and Republicans, who are normally at each other's throats, have found themselves in rare agreement. The Raleigh News and Observer reports:
    A judge has just thrown out two amendments to the North Carolina Constitution that voters approved in November.
