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…

The Stupid Party sees its shadow. (TWO more years of Big Dummy and his grandson.)

Columnist George Will once labeled the GOP Establishment “the Stupid Party” for its penchant for blowing tremendous opportunities.   By a count of 568-445, last year’s coup has been “legitimized.”   Of course, it took (1) weighted votes from elected officials, (2) hinky rules like…

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…

Thom Tillis and THE WORK NO ONE ELSE WILL DO

North Carolina’s junior senator participated in yet another pro-amnesty photo op, and the driveby media assumed position, ready to drool and take dictation: Representatives from the construction, hospitality, farming and seafood industries sat down with U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis in Raleigh on Monday to share…

Rubio for President co-chairman Robin Hayes takes credit for Trump’s NC success

That’s right.  Just a few months before being installed via coup as NCGOP state chairman, Robin Hayes was appointed North Carolina co-chairman of the Marco Rubio for President campaign.   Now, just days before delegates choose between Hayes and challenger Jim Womack, the state GOP…

Tillis collapses, taken away by ambulance, during DC 5K race

The story is here.  Once again, life-and-death episodes make political differences look really, really tiny and insignificant.  I’d say it’s mighty appropriate right now to take a TIME OUT and focus on wishing the very best for Thom Tillis and his family as they deal with…

Tilli$$$$: Call me a RINO, please. (And make the check out to T-H-O-M …)

It didn’t work on Tucker Carlson.  But Paul Shumaker must have convinced our weather-vane of a junior senator to give it one more crack out in public:  […] Tillis had more to say about other topics, including one particularly memorable quip. When he dies, he said,…

Richard Hudson NOT a fan of the Trump wall either

Here’s one more piece of evidence for those of you who really WANT to believe that manufactured politician Richard Hudson is an actual Tea Party-style conservative who doesn’t march in lockstep with Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy: […] Hudson joined Tillis in criticizing some of…

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…

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…
