Phil Berger hops on the Tillis ‘love train’

  How trés disappointing:       “A record of achieving results” ????  Hitler had one of those TOO.  (They weren’t very positive or uplifting results, but he got results.)     “Working WITH Senator Berger” ????   It was actually more like Speaker Tillis…

#nc-03: Dr. Joan, Big DC Money and a gaggle of #NeverTrumpers.

  Joan Perry enjoys lamenting –to anyone who will listen — that “Washington insiders” are out to get her.  Funny thing is — according to Federal Election Commission records,  DC-based and DC-connected political action committees have officially spent more than ONE MILLION DOLLARS promoting Perry’s…

NC-03: The McIntyres (D) return Joan Perry’s favor

    For a former Democrat congressman, Mike McIntyre sure is playing a  major role in a Republican primary (in a district he doesn’t even live in).   Joan  Perry and Greg Murphy are locked in a runoff for the GOP nomination in North Carolina’s…

‘Draining the swamp’? Officially, now a JOKE.

    With President Trump’s endorsement of the man whose biggest dream upon arriving in DC was chairing the National Republican Senatorial Committee,  we can officially attach a ‘jk’  (just kidding) emoji to Trump’s whole ‘Drain The Swamp meme.   Trump came out with an…

Oh, look! Even MORE polling. (Cooper over Forest. Tillis in the toilet.)

  Civitas has teamed up with Harper polling to  take state voters’ temperature about the 2020 election.  Here’s some of what they found:     Granted, this was taken earlier this month. Cooper’s lead is outside the margin of error, but that 16% undecided number…

STILL kicking the late senator Helms

  Our very own state Republican Party downplays the memory of Jesse Helms — despite the fact that HE was a tremendous force in making the GOP a power player in eastern North Carolina.  The vile knuckle-draggers in  the N&O and Charlotte Observer newsrooms did…

Tillis: Being ‘Too Conservative’ is HARD.

  You wonder how some people have the gall to claim  what they claim.  Political uber-consultant Paul Shumaker has this template for his clients where they try to hide their ‘Screw Trump’ track record with a bunch of ‘I LOVE DJT’ babbling.  It didn’t work…

NC-03: Utter hysteria in the email

  Talk about getting off message. Dr. Joan Perry is all over the place to such an extent that you can’t figure out where she is going or what she’s talking about.   Take her recent email blast, for instance.    Her opponent Greg Murphy…
