#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…

#ncsen: Ross smacks Burr for opposing insider trading ban for members of Congress

Banning Members of Congress from using sensitive information they obtain during the course of the business day to make investment decisions that pay off BIG? Sounds like a gimme. An easy YES vote.  But, think again:  Deborah Ross’s campaign is attacking Senator Richard Burr for a 2012…

Thilli$: Judges? (Ain’t my job, man.)

Oh, the leftists are having a field day with our junior senator’s latest battle with coherence and articulation:  Republicans have never made it easy for President Barack Obama to confirm judges. But Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) came up with a new reason the Senate shouldn’t…

Donald Trump, Richard Burr and a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea

I had been hearing this gossip about Richard Burr as a possible VP candidate for Donald Trump for weeks now.  I blew it off — assuming it was something floated out there by Paul Shumaker & co. to generate some buzz about their anemic candidate…

Richard Burr’s greatest, um, “hits”

We’re about to get bombarded with propaganda telling us what a great conservative Richard Burr IS, and how scary Deborah Ross IS.  (For the record, we agree wholeheartedly with that second part.)  Conservative Review has done a great job of cataloging Richard Burr’s highs and…

Richard Burr: HB2 went “too far”

A few years back, he told us trying to defund ObamaCare was ”the dumbest idea” he’d ever heard — shoving a knife in the back of conservatives attempting a last-minute killing of that fiscal nightmare.  He voted FOR allowing federal bureaucrats to use racial quotas…

Traditional values crowd showing NO LOVE to Burr-Thilli$

In 2010, we heard about how extreme left Elaine Marshall is.  In 2014, we heard about how often Kay Hagan voted with Obama.  Well, we made our choices in those races.  And how is it working out?:  North Carolina is under attack from the federal…

Burr, Thilli$ do Obama a solid.

This post in National Review’s The Corner blog sums up the, um, *benefits* of a “Republican Senate” in the Obama era nicely: To nobody’s surprise, the Lee amendment to defund the Obama Administration’s radical Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule (AFFH), (a rule that essentially turns…

Leadership. Anyone? Anyone? (Bueller?)

Gov. Pat McCrory is firing back at the US DOJ for their ridiculous demands to drop gender restrictions on bathrooms, locker rooms, and dressing rooms. (Who knows if this would be happening were he not locked in a tough reelection effort.  It would have been…

Richard Burr. The MARYLAND US Senate primary. Gay stuff.

Our senior US senator told us he wasn’t getting into that gay “crap,’‘ but apparently that gay “crap” has found HIM:  North Carolina’s Richard Burr apparently has a pick in a crowded Republican Senate primary race in Maryland, where 14 candidates are vying for retiring…
