How is THIS not party disloyalty?

We’ve all heard about the railroading the ‘Haywood Five’ got from NCGOPe leaders.  Sharing a humorous libertarian T-shirt design on Facebook.  Questioning the RINO tendencies of a local elected Republican.  THAT kind of thing.  Now, it appears our two Republican US senators are joining the Swamp effort to sink the Senate candidacy of Alabama GOP nominee Roy Moore.  Sinking him results in a Democrat being elected.  Sounds — and looks — like working against the interests of the party (to the benefit of the Democrats) to me. Moore is getting bombarded with decades-old accusations.  Just like Trump did in the…

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…

Anti-vote fraud group assails Burr-Thilli$$$ pick for US atty

The driveby media and the Democrats keep telling us there is no vote fraud going on. Yet, North Carolina’s Voter Integrity Project says the real problem is finding people with the guts to act on credible evidence: Given the track record of Mecklenburg County, District Attorney, Andrew Murray, a public servant who declined to prosecute two of the Voter Integrity Project’s fully vetted criminal referrals for interstate double voting, it sickened us to learn of his nomination for the Western District of NC position of US Attorney. Murray was presented by our US senators to President Trump as their choice…

‘Tricky Dick’ Burr: Trump ‘misguided’

*Oof.*  It appears our US senators are in a race to see who can infuriate the biggest chunk of the GOP base back home.  Here’s Richard Burr — who, I’m told, played football at Wake Forest sans helmet — being passed the baton by his partner-in-selling-out, Thom Thilli$$$: […] SENATOR BURR IS NOT AS CRITICAL OF THE PRESIDENT AS SOME OF HIS FELLOW REPUBLICANS.HE SAYS THE U.S. SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PUT UP WITH WHITE SUPREMACISTS, OR ANY GROUP WHOSE SOLE INTENT IS TO CREATE CONFLICT.WE SPECIFICALLY ASKED HIM ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S COMMENTS, HIS LATEST COMMENTS, ON THE CHARLOTTESVILLE PROTEST….

‘Tricky Dick’ Burr: “I’m Sam Ervin! I’m SAM, I am!” ( Jim Morrill SAID so.)

The president is trying to rally his troops to deal with arguably the worst crisis facing the country, and Richard Burr is preoccupied with FANTASY: President Trump told GOP senators at the White House on Wednesday that they should cancel their August recess and not leave town until acting to repeal ObamaCare. “We shouldn’t leave town until this is complete,” he said during a lunch at the White House. “We should hammer this out and get it done.” […] Only three GOP senators missed the lunch: Richard Burr (N.C.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.) and John McCain (Ariz.). Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence…

#ncpol: Thom WHO ???

That’s right. According to a major national survey, a whopping 30 percent of North Carolina voters say they either Don’t Know who Thom Tillis is, or have No Opinion of him.  (Only Michigan Democrat Gary Peters fared worse.  Thirty-four percent of his constituents either don’t know his name or have no opinion.) Crazy Bernie Sanders has a 75 percent approval rating with the folks in Vermont.   The survey concludes that Kentuckians think much more of Rand Paul (53 percent approve, 37 percent disapprove) than they do of Mitch McConnell (44 percent approve, 47 percent disapprove.)  McConnell has the largest disapproval…

US Senate ready to blow O-Care repeal?

That’s what it looks like.  And a group of conservatives, from the House and Senate (including our very own Mark Meadows), is calling them out on it: Conservative senators and allied outside groups are on the verge of rebellion against the Senate’s Obamacare repeal effort, potentially derailing delicate negotiations to overhaul the nation’s health care system. As Obamacare repeal talks enter crunch time with a vote as soon as this month, the Senate bill continues to tilt toward more moderate members of the GOP on keeping some of Obamacare’s regulatory structure and providing a more generous wind-down of the law’s…

Tillis signs on to Paris Accord withdrawal (Burr DOES NOT)

A group of Republican US senators sent a letter to President Trump in late May encouraging him to pull out of the Paris Accord on “climate change.”  Amazingly, only 22 of 52 Senate Republicans would sign their name to the letter: U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), senior member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, and Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) today sent a letter to President Trump calling for the United States to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. The letter was also signed by Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), John Cornyn (R-Texas),  Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.),…

Conservative Review: Budd overtakes Meadows as most conservative NCGOPer in DC

The new guy in town sure is getting some attention in conservative circles.  Conservative Review has finally decided to update its conservative rankings of Members of Congress.   Their analysis — as of April 18 — has congressman Ted Budd rockin’ a perfect score of 100 percent.  (Budd is one of just 17 House members CR awarded a perfect score to.) Mark Meadows, the previous king of the hill, comes in second at 93 percent.  Budd and Meadows are the only As handed out this time to North Carolinians by CR.   In the B category, we have Mark Walker with…

Drivebys BOOST Burr, BUTCHER History (and, of course, THE TRUTH)

The drivebys sooooooo want this Russia nonsense to be the next Watergate scandal.  Just read some of the latest foolishness from the Charlotte Observer’s somnambulant scribbler Jim Morrill:  On a Saturday night in October 1973, U.S. Sen. Sam Ervin was dining at Asheville’s Grove Park Inn with hundreds of fellow North Carolina Democrats when an aide came up and whispered in his ear. President Richard Nixon had just fired the special Watergate prosecutor and accepted the resignations of two top Justice Department officials, the aide told him. “Let’s put it this way, his eyebrows went into high gear,” recalls the…
