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…

#ncpol: Just gonna leave this RIGHT HERE …

It’s been interesting to see and hear all of the North Carolina Republican big-wigs tearing Judge James Wynn a new one for his ruling against North Carolina’s congressional districts.  (Case in point, see below.) Of course, we agree with Mr. Blaine on his assessment.  We always have. But not all NCGOP bigwigs have been down on Wynn.   We thought this was a great opportunity to step into the political way-back machine and revisit the year 2010: Senator Burr Congratulates Judge James Wynn on Fourth Circuit Court Confirmation Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) last night congratulated Judge…

Burr: No Russia-Trump collusion evidence. (But I’m still open to the idea.)

The Associated Press is the latest driveby entity to extend Richard Burr’s ’15 minutes of fame’ as the useful Republican idiot in the Russia collusion “investigation”: For much of the last two years, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr has been the Russia investigator who is seen but rarely heard on Capitol Hill.[…]  You guys in DC are,um, “lucky.” We rarely see or hear from him down here.  (And he’s supposedly representing US.)  MORE: […] In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, the North Carolina Republican opened up about the investigation that has now consumed 19 months of his…

Speaking of USELESS Paul Shumaker clients …

It’s all over Washington that US Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has been employing a Chinese spy for, oh, TWENTY YEARS.    She sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee with our good pal Dick Burr — with access to all kinds of secrets Beijing would looooooove to see.  And WHAT is the Lawnmower Man’s reaction?  He’s still charging forward on this Trump-is-a-tool-of-the-Kremlin nonsense.  Carrying water for all the folks still butt-hurt about the pants-suited one’s beatdown in November 2016. Burr’s House colleagues have addressed the Russia nonsense for what it is.  But our buddy Dick keeps tilting at that windmill. It’s…

#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: Is it 2022 YET ???

It seems Richard Burr is not going to let Thom Tilli$$$ earn that suckweasel certification uncontested.  Burr is chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, but instead of showing some leadership he’s following Democrat Mark Warner around like a puppy on this Russian election meddling nonsense. The genius is even defending Warner in the wake of the revelations Warner was creeping around secretly communicating with the dossier crowd: […] An aide to Burr, the Republican chairman, told Fox News that Burr was aware of the “contact” Warner made with Steele’s representative but added, “I don’t believe he was aware of the…
