General Assembly’s letter urges Trump to adopt ‘get tough’ stance
By John Droz Jr. | News Analysis
PERQUIMANS & PASQUOTANK — The current methodology of coming up with our national technical policies is fundamentally flawed. An instructive case is what transpired with the large Desert Wind/Amazon project, currently being built in Perquimans and Pasquotank counties of northeastern North Carolina.
Here are some unsurprising results of a self-serving lobbyist-driven energy policy:
One, the Obama administration’s position appears to be that promotion of industri…
Big Brother’s control becomes much easier in a cashless society
NEW YORK CITY — Last month, more than 100 executives from some of the biggest financial institutions in the United States participated in a secret meeting, in which a company known as ‘Chain’ unveiled a technology that transforms U.S. dollars into a concept known as pure digital assets.
Reportedly, there were representatives from NASDAQ, Citigroup, Visa, Fidelity, Fiserv and Pfizer in the room, and they were told by this group about claims to be partnering with Capital One, State Street, and First Data. This “r…
United Nations’ brainchild, Agenda 21, thrives in today’s world
A short time ago, we wrote an article about UN Agenda 21, which is supposed to be a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development. It is a product of the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. Here, we expand on the topic and how it is proliferating. Let’s examine 17 goals of the program:
Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere.
The only answer the plan offers for eliminating poverty is redistribution of wealth. This document calls for “e…
International trade relations make for strange bedfellows!
A few weeks back, we wrote an article about the Trans Pacific Partnership and the fact that it was more a wish list of liberal ideals than it was about trade. These proposed ‘trade deals’ impact other elements of society throughout the world.
What is not being reported in the nation’s news media is the fact that two candidates for President of the United States (who could not be more different) are on the same page when it comes to globalist trade treaties.
Of course, we refer to Donald Trump, the fast-talking cowboy from New York C…
On Oct 5, The County Compass co-sponsored a well-attended Candidate Forum in Elizabeth City.
Candidates for the At-Large seat on the Pasquotank County Commission did not have sufficient time to answer questions in depth. For this reason, we submitted follow up questions to the incumbent commissioner, Jeff Dixon, and to the challenger, Sean Lavin.
In so doing, we trust that this will provide our readers with a side by side comparison – helpful in deciding just who to vote for. The questions were submitted two weeks ago but due to the death of Commissioner Dixon’s mother in law, his answers…
Is this a side effect of the national economy?
It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words — especially true with the housing market. The second quarter saw a record broken, which few will be celebrating.
Homeownership sank to a 50-year low of 62.9 percent of our population. This dismal record marked a continuation of a downward trend that began in 2004, when the figure topped out at 69.2 percent.
The decline has continued almost unmitigated through the most frenzied days of the housing bubble, through the Great Recession, through the housing market recovery and during the s…

Well-known billionaire funding ambitious efforts
Annotated by John Woodard
BALLOT BOX — Various organizations, funded by George Soros, are attempting to rewrite the rules of elections in order to make it easier for Democrat wins. The millions of dollars that these organizations are providing seek to fundamentally transform our election rules in favor of Democrats, Racial Interest Groups, Progressives and Organized Labor.
So how are they doing this, and what are the methods? Most people are familiar with the recent court decision pertaining to Voter Identificatio…
What hides behind that green curtain would spook the heck out of public
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many people in this country who oppose the Fed have claimed that this institution is an instrument of debt. In recent years, the Fed has been “buying” bonds in order to provide additional leverage to Banks and the Federal Government in order to maintain liquidity in the monetary system of the United States.
In so doing, the administration of President Obama has been able to go deeper and deeper in debt driving the national deficit to nearly $20 trillion. With nearly unlimited cash, spending mon…
Oct. 5 forum alternative to Trump – Hillary mudslinging
ELIZABETH CITY – This much-anticipated Candidate Forum is set for Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 6:30 p.m. at the Pasquotank County Courthouse. The Elizabeth City Area Chamber of Commerce, the Daily Advance, and the County Compass newspaper have joined forces to produce the event. Originally, two forums were planned — one by the County Compass and the Chamber, and the other by the Daily Advance — but consolidating the sessions offers the candidates a wider audience.
State Sen. Bill Cook, the incumbent, is a Republican from Be…

So-called ‘Critical Theory’ gained traction in the turbulent ‘60s
Annotated by John Woodard
NEW YORK CITY — A few months ago, we provided an article about the beginnings of liberalism in the United States and the relationship between the Fabian Socialists Society and American Universities. In the narrative that follows, we will discuss the growth of Marxism in this country and how this movement began to take hold in American Society.
In September 1930, the growing influence of Nazi Germany led the founders of The Institute for Social Research to prepare to move the Institute o…
This harvest festival in Barbados was originally celebrated in the 1800s by slaves at the end of the sugar-cane harvest. Today, Crop Over is a civic celebration which takes place during the last three weeks of July and usually ends on the first Monday in August. There are historical displays, craft shows, fairs, open-air concerts, calypso music and dancing, and “stick licking”—a self-defense sport similar to fencing. The first Monday of August is the finale, known as the Kadooment, which includes the judging of costumed bands at the National Stadium and a grand calypso procession. More…
