Can Richard Burr REALLY be this stupid?

After reviewing the driveby media over the last several weeks, I am convinced our two US senators are competing for the title of DUMBEST member of ‘The World’s Greatest Deliberative Body.’  (It’s neck-and-neck between these two right now.) Thom Tillis thinks the Border Patrol has things under control in California, and Richard Burr joins John McCain, Lindsay Graham-nesty and all the Democrats in seeing some kind of evil conspiracy in President Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey.   (Firing the guy DOES complicate the “probe.” One less face to put in front of the camera to keep this bullshit afloat.) …

Nasty liberals, their driveby enablers ensnare Senator Burr

I’ll say it again, some of the most vile, most evil, most depraved people on the planet vote early and often for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and cruise around with bumper stickers with COEXIST spelled out in cutesy little symbols. Colon Campbell has once again been dispatched from the bathrooms to take dictation on behalf of the “Revolution of the Proletariat.”   This time, he has an easy mark in the form of US Senator Richard Burr:  U.S. Sen. Richard Burr is facing criticism for joking that reading negative newspaper articles would make him “slit my wrists,” with some…

Burr, Tillis demand MORE foreign workers be imported into US

Having a hard time finding a job?  Your allegedly Republican US senators are not doing a whole lot to help the situation:  Thirty-one Democratic and Republican Senators are asking the Department of Homeland Security to maximize the use of blue-collar outsourcing visas so U.S. companies can import more foreign workers instead of recruiting, training and paying unskilled U.S. workers. The bipartisan request comes three months after the shocking November vote pressured GOP leaders to slash the H-2B visa program from a one-year high of 264,000 visas back down to the long-standing level of 66,000 visas. The request to Department of Homeland Security…

#ncpol: Richard Burr. George Holding. “Solar Champions.” (Oy, vey.)

    This does not surprise me about Burr.  His core beliefs are about as flexible as those girls down at the “gentlemen’s club” near the airport.    (Just like those ladies, he works for tips, too.) But, George Holding is a different story.  I’ll have to admit, I thought he was a little weak as US attorney — ready to  cut deals at the drop of a hat.  When it came down to HIM vs. Renee Ellmers, I saw him as the much better choice for conservatives.  He started doing some things in Congress — racking up respectable conservative…

Lefties cheer attempt to “buy” Richard Burr’s vote

NCPolicyWatch — run by that madly-blinking space alien Chris Fitzsimon and his BFF Rob, and funded by WRAL owner Jim Goodmon — has the gory details:  Given what we know thus far, this seems as if it’s worth a try…. Durham, N.C., February 3, 2017: When North Carolina residents Eunice Chang and Lekha Shupeck realized the only way to get Senator Richard Burr’s attention was to buy it, they launched a GoFundMe campaign to do exactly that: www.gofundme.com/buy-senator-richard-burrs-vote. Betsy DeVos gave $43,200 to Senator Richard Burr’s reelection campaign, and is getting Burr’s vote for a Cabinet seat in return. Meanwhile,…

Burr ready to subpoena Trump on ‘Russian hacking’?

There’s still no evidence worthy of a court hearing that the Russian government covertly affected the integrity of our presidential election.  The publicly-released report from the intelligence community was full of disclaimers about how they don’t stand behind any of the findings. Julian Assange of Wikileaks keeps insisting at the top of his lungs that he did not get the leaked DNC emails from “a state actor” — i.e., a government entity.  (Now the Democrats and useful idiot Republicans pushing this Russian hacking story are suggesting that Wikileaks got the information from a middleman for the Russian government.)  Speaking of…

MORE Russia nonsense.

As the vote of the electoral college and inauguration day itself approach, the hysteria is reaching a deafening pitch.  We’re told that Russia subverted our political process and gave us Donald Trump.  (In 2008 and 2012, reports that Barry Obama was a Manchurian Candidate for radical Islam were roundly dismissed and ridiculed by the SAME PEOPLE pushing THIS tripe THIS year.)  Subversion via hacking.    Black hat hacking is morally equivalent to breaking-and-entering into a facility you do not own or reside in. It is a crime.  But in a world connected with ethernet cable and wireless signals, WHO has…

Obama-appointed federal judge critical of NC counties’ voter list clean-up

We told you earlier about The Round Rev’s lawsuit in federal court over efforts in some North Carolina counties to clean up their voter lists.  Well, it’s in court, in front of an Obama-appointed (and black) judge, who is not happy with the counties:  North Carolina’s process for challenging voters’ registration seems to harken to a bygone era when fewer safeguards were in place, a federal judge said Wednesday as she presided over a lawsuit that alleges voters are being purged unfairly. Lawyers for North Carolina countered that state data shows only a sliver of names have been removed from…

#NCSEN: Two F-students reenact 2014’s Hagan v. Tillis

I thought last night’s Senate debate sounded very familiar.   Deborah Ross spouted all of Kay Hagan’s hard-line feminist and socialist talking points.  Richard Burr, just like Thom Tillis two years ago, threw up a lot of non-specifics peppered with a bunch of talk about “crossing the aisle” and “working with Democrats.” (And we see how, um, “well” that has all worked out, don’t we?)  I know Burr has the same consultant Tillis did. Ross apparently shares one with Roy Cooper.  She had that same glassy-eyed, hypnotized (or stoned) look and manner of speaking that her party’s gubernatorial nominee exhibited the other…

#ncpol: Sex & The US Senate

Are you a Carrie, Miranda or Samantha?  A Thom, Dick or Debbie?  (Inquiring minds WANT to know.)  There are all kinds of serious issues facing the country.  But here we are in 2016 discussing North Carolina’s 1995 debate on a sex offender registry.  Team Burr likely wants to avoid discussion of his voting record and his stands on the issues.  In all likelihood, those details would end up looking WAY TOO similar to the platform of challenger Deborah Ross. Instead of focusing on an issue that has nothing to do with his service in the Senate, I’d like Richard Burr…
