#ncpol: Lefties LOVING Thilli$$$$$$$$$

Here’s the most inappropriately-named Progress NC: *Isn’t THAT special?* Seriously.  What is this guy up to?  He’s clearly got detailed plans for enriching and empowering himself at our expense (and with our votes).  There is all kind of talk that he’s bored with DC and…

El Rushbo NOT IMPRESSED with Thilli$$$$$$$$$

We told you the other day about our junior US senator’s rebuke to ‘The Deplorables’.  Now, the CEO of the EIB Network himself is chiming in on Thom Tilli$$$$:  […] So here comes Thom Tillis, senator, North Carolina, in the Charlotte Observer, writing an op-ed piece…

#ncpol: Thom tho$$es conservatives under the bus. (OUCH!)

Thom Tillis says we need to get over ourselves on this whole ‘small government’ nonsense:  Since the election, I’ve heard some of my fellow Republicans claim that the party received a decisive mandate from voters. Let’s be clear: the American people didn’t give the GOP…

The two JOHNs and the 50-year pass

By the logic of the driveby fake news crowd and the political establishment, good works done 50 years or more ago immunize you from any and all criticism.  The two best examples:  Senator John McCain and congressman John Lewis. We’ve all heard about John McCain’s…

Alma Adams: Cops are pigs. Counting to 3 is hard. (And if I take this hat off, what’s left of my brain will fall out.)

Anyone who thinks HB2 is embarrassing to North Carolina ought to take a gander at congresswoman Alma Adams. If it’s racially-inflammatory, or even mildly Marxist-Leninist, she’s right there cheering for it loud and proud. We told you earlier about her challenges with counting.  A DC…

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…

WHY can’t the GOP trust the market on health care?

The Republican Party’s platform at the national and state level talks oh so nice about appreciating the free market.  But a lot of that doesn’t mesh with the rhetoric coming out of DC Republican leaders’ mouths.  In about three weeks, they will control both ends…

Merry Christmas.

2016 has been wild and crazy right to the very end.  (We get the feeling we may see a little more in the break between Christmas and New Year’s.)  Once again, we all here at Haymaker HQ want to thank you for your loyalty and…

Tillis fan seeks Haymaker removal from FACEBOOK !!!!

Yep. BE-lieve it or NOT:   Fascism at its finest, ladies and gentlemen.  I quote the man’s own words he spoke to the driveby media — even linking to them — and offer my critique of his comments. Instead of submitting a comment at the…

Thilli$$$: No more controver$$$y, plea$$$e. (I need to get PAID.)

Thom Tillis is out there preaching that national Republicans can learn a lesson from Pat McCrory about — get this — moving too far to the right: For all the GOP’s elect­or­al suc­cess this year, Sen. Thom Tillis says the party should see North Car­o­lina’s gubernat­ori­al…
