Despite underwater approval ratings, Tilli$$ keeps servicing donors, dissing voters

If we WANTED a US senator who would: protect ObamaCare, support letting criminals out of prison earlier, block the Republican president’s plan to build a wall on the southern border, side with Democrats in their budget fight with the Republican president, and support further protections for the unconstitutional special prosecutor —  Wouldn’t we have reelected Kay Hagan in 2014? Pretty brash moves for a guy who didn’t even crack the 50% mark in November 2014.   Nevertheless, Thom Tillis  doubled down on those issues and more in a recent op-ed in The Hill.  Among other things, be derides critics of his…

L’affaire Farr: Tim Scott? Down with the struggle. Burr / Tillis? Useless /MIA.

We’re starting to learn a valuable lesson here.  If  a DC Republican wants to nominate you for something, BEWARE.  The minute leftists say the slightest negative thing about you, your Republican brethren on The Potomac will drop you like a hot potato and hang you out to dry like this morning’s laundry.  Raleigh’s Tom Farr is the latest to learn this lesson — THE HARD WAY.  Farr got nominated to fill a vacant federal court seat serving North Carolina. He’s been run through the driveby media meat-grinder with nary an assist from his fellow GOPers.  Leftist dirtbags from The Round…

#ncpol: Our (“Corrupt”?) useful idiot in DC

I’m more of the opinion that Dick Burr is just not that smart. But this blogger has him pegged with the (bad) c-word: The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) is the same committee that Michael Caputo told: “God damn you to hell“, and for a very good reason.  The entire committee is corrupt from top to bottom; especially Chairman Richard Burr and member Marco Rubio. The latest evidence therein comes from Chairman Burr defending the insufferably corrupt FISA application that was used against U.S. person Carter Page: (Via CNN) […] “I don’t think I ever expressed that I thought…

#ncsen: Tom Farr STILL left hanging out there

I am sure Thomas Farr is starting to feel like a ping-pong ball.  DC politicians and special interests have batted him and his reputation back and forth since 2006 over the promise of a federal judgeship. The leftist point of contention over Farr?  He worked for the late Senator Jesse Helms. He was a good soldier in the courtroom for the NCGOP in standing up to the Left’s “Sue ’til it’s Blue” strategy.  And the leftist goons are making him pay on both of those counts. The leftists and their compatriots in the driveby media have practically made “Racist” Farr’s…

‘Tricky Dick’ Burr: Big-spending tree-hugger

We told you a little earlier about our senior senator conspiring with one other RINO and ALL DEMOCRATS to kill substantial federal spending cuts in the Senate.  The Wall Street Journal has more on WHY ol’ Mauze did it: Republicans have had a rough week, mostly of their own making, and on Wednesday they added to their self-punishment with a spending fiasco in the Senate. Two GOP Senators blocked the Trump Administration’s rescissions package that would claw back $15 billion, much of which wasn’t even likely to be spent under current policy. A Senate procedural vote to move the rescissions…

#ncsen: Burr, Dems kill fed spending cuts

For all of you who argue we need to stick with every R through thick and thin, we submit one Richard Mauze Burr as Exhibit A in our rebuttal argument: Senators voted Wednesday to block President Trump’s $15.4 billion spending cuts package, with lawmakers saying it trimmed the budget too much. Brushing aside administration promises that the cuts were chiefly to money that was never going to be spent, the Senate voted 50-48 to keep the bill bottled up. Two Republicans — Susan Collins of Maine and Richard Burr of North Carolina — joined Democrats to defeat the package.[…] M’kay….

#ncpol: Thilli$$$, Burr support EPA attack on trucking industry

And you thought the Democrats had cornered the market on jackasses: Four GOP establishment senators and ten House Republicans signed a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt, asking him to save an Obama-era trucking rule. The New York Times reported on Thursday that Sens. Todd Young (R-IN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Richard Burr (R-NC) all signed onto a letter urging Pruitt to save an Obama-era glider truck emissions regulation.  […]During the Obama administration, the EPA created a new rule to regulate glider trucks the same way as new trucks. Glider trucks are built by…

#ncpol: Hung out to dry

The liberal jackals are snarling for the chance to taste Tom Farr’s blood. He’s a lawyer who has been  a good soldier for the NCGOP over the years.  He did some legal work two decades ago for our five-times duly-elected US senator Jesse Helms.  And, for that, the late senator, his associates, and Farr are being smeared as Nazis, Klansmen, the disenfranchisers of black voters and the killers of black babies. So much for honest debate about the issues.  The leftists are out to destroy Farr, What makes it worse is that the guys who recommended Farr for a federal…

Thilli$$$, Burr, Senate, dragging their feet on approving Trump judge picks

Here in North Carolina, we’ve seen the tyranny and mayhem out-of-control leftist judges can wreak FIRST-HAND.  We’ve got a great opportunity to remake the federal judiciary.  We have a GOP Senate (the chamber which approves all presidential nominees).  We have a senator, one Thom Tillis, who sits on the committee that approves judges.  So, how is the committee — and the GOP majority — doing?  Not so hot, apparently:  Conservatives are increasingly frustrated over the slow pace of the Senate’s confirming President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees, and are calling for swift action from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Per…

Saving ObamaCare

He once told us that repealing ObamaCare was the “dumbest” idea he’d ever heard.  It looks like our very own Richard Burr thinks voting to spend BILLIONS on subsidies for big insurance companies to keep ObamaCare afloat is pretty freakin’ smart: Two key senators on Thursday announced that the bipartisan proposal they’ve crafted to fix Obamacare’s cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments has a total of 24 original co-sponsors on both sides of the aisle. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tennessee, the chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee, reached an agreement with his ranking member, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Washington, and…
