Thilli$$$ theams with ERIC HOLDER on criminal justice “reform”

That’s right.  Our junior US senator is teaming with Barry Obama’s attorney general — the one who sided with the New Black Panthers over regular voters — to “reform” the criminal justice system.  (Feeling better about “holding your nose” in 2014, yet?) Here’s the NY Times showing Amnesty Thom & his amigos some love: 

 A broad coalition of law enforcement officials and activists is expected to urge President Trump on Wednesday to adjust policies on policing and criminality, the first time such a group has spoken out against the Trump administration.

Some of the nation’s most prominent prosecutors, police chiefs and criminal justice overhaul advocates — including Senator Thom Tillis, Republican of North Carolina, as well as representatives from the conservative Koch brothers network — will gather in Washington for the National Law Enforcement Summit. The former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. and Sally Q. Yates, the acting attorney general whom Mr. Trump abruptly fired in the first few days of his presidency, will speak.

That’s right.  Obama’s AG and the acting AG, a holdover from Obama, who spent a lot of time sabotaging Trump during the early days.  Sounds like *fun*:

[…] They and other presenters are expected to pose the challenge to Mr. Trump, who ran in 2016 as a “law and order” candidate but whose attorney general’s policies — as well as Mr. Trump’s own messaging — have come under increasing criticism from local law enforcement officials.

In his inaugural address, he described a raging “American carnage” that he vowed to halt — a turn of phrase that rankled local officials who have prided themselves on crime reduction. Mr. Trump has frequently cited his support for police officers, and he has surrounded himself with local law enforcement officials at any opportunity.

His attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has pursued an aggressive approach to crime in major cities. Without citing evidence, Mr. Sessions has claimed that changes imposed by the Obama administration that sought a reduction in mandatory minimum sentences for some drug prosecutions had led to a large increase in crime.

Members of the coalition plan to urge Mr. Trump and Mr. Sessions to reverse the current course the Department of Justice has taken.

“Today, our nation faces new public safety challenges, including an increase in opioid abuse, an uptick in homicides in some cities and strained police-community relations,” a group of police chiefs and prosecutors, including Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the district attorney in Manhattan, wrote in a letter to Mr. Trump and Mr. Sessions.  “We believe that these challenges are best answered with modern strategies, innovative solutions and a reliance on confirmed data,” they wrote, citing new public safety hurdles such as the opioid epidemic and “strained police-community relations” after years of national focus on police shootings of unarmed black men and women. […] 

Vance, of course, is a Dem.  His daddy was secretary of state for JIMMY CARTER.  Democrats everywhere you look here.  I guess Thom is the “bipartisan” token.  So, Thom thinks taking the Black Lives Matter route is the way to reelection in 2020 (or Blount Street in 2018)? 

Oh, yeah.  The “summit”  is sponsored by The Brennan Center for Justice.  A HUGE honkin’ liberal group known for trashing EVERY Republican president and their judicial nominees.

  1. Thom “Amnesty” Tillis is just Kay Hagan without the skirt. He is likely one of the main reasons that Moore, Berger, ans Woodhouse dropped the threshold for winning a primary to 30%.

    We need a conservative Unaffiliated ready to go – on the ballot, not a write-in – if they use that lousy 30% monstrosity to jam “Amnesty” Tillis down our throats again. Tillis is ABSOLUTELY unacceptable.

    1. We need to send him home he has not did anything the hole time that he had been in Washington so if he wants to join
      Eric Holder he sent him to Eric.

  2. Maybe Thom Thillis is angling for a Roger Goodell’s job at the NFL.Or the new lobbyist for the NFL, who is now all about issues in communities like “reforming” the Justice system.

  3. Is there necessarily something wrong with trying to find a compromise? I’m a straight R ticket voter, but I find it absurd to think that Republican ideas are the ONLY ideas. Yes, I may think overall our ideas are better, that doesn’t mean Dem ideas cannot serve a helpful purpose in our society, in some way.

    That type of narrow minded thinking is exactly why we’re in the situation we are in nationwide. D’s only think their ideas work, Republicans jump in and do the same thing. Yet, nothing ever really improves in drastic ways. Perhaps they never will, but I don’t want to be a tunnel vision voter. I want to hear others points of view, and see if we can come to an understanding where both sides can work to propel our country forward. That may mean doing a sacrifice on my end, but if it’s better for the country at large, so be it.

    1. Tillis is a surrender monkey. Democrat “compromises” use that word in an Orwellian sense. It is never meeting in the middle. It is giving them everything they want. It is like all of John Boehner’s and Mitch McConnell’s “compromises” which have constituted giving away the farm to Obama.

      If we were dealing with real compromises where the sides med in the middle and each got half of what they wanted, you might have a point, but that has not been the way these things have been working.

      1. Can you explicitly tell me why McConnell is so bad? Because honestly, he saved the sup court, and has done many other things that tend to fly under the radar that have propelled conservative causes.

        What has he actually done that has damaged the country? Because there are procedures for how things go in the senate. He cannot just be a human wrecking ball. It doesn’t work that way whether you’d want it to or not. Some things have to be done in a timely manner or in compromises. Otherwise, you may never have anything get done.

        1. My comments have to do with the Obama era and the Omnibuses, Cromnibuses, debt ceiling increases, etc. which were always surrenders to Obama, not meeting in the middle. On the RedState site, they coined the term ”Surrender Theatre” for all the contortions Boehner and McConnell would go through before giving the Democrats what they wanted. Oh, as to getting something in return, about the only thing McConnell got was one big infrastructure project for his own state, something that at the time was called ”the Kentucky kickback”.

          McConnell is a vicious anti-conservative who pledged to “crush them [conservatives] everywhere”. In Senate races, if he cannot impose his own establishment flack, he walks away from the race, as he is right now doing in Alabama:

          McConnell is also noted for the really underhanded dirty tricks he uses against conservatives, as he did in Mississippi. The Senate Conservatives Fund traced the money for this outrage to 7 establishment GOP Senators with McConnell giving the largest amount: :

          RIchard Burr was one of the ”shameful seven” who bankrolled that dishonest racist campaign.

        2. Where have you been? McConnell is awful. He can’t look after himself, much less a bunch of Rinos !!!!

  4. Both Tillis and Burr have to go. They democrats/socialists/communists/anti-Americans who have no business in a Constitutional Republic government. North Korea would be happy to welcome them along with obama’s cabinet, the clintons and soros. And Sessions if he continues to refuse to do his job.

  5. Lets consider how we got into this mess with such crappy GOP officeholders who behave more like Democrats.

    The big reason is major out of state interference in our primaries from various establishment groups. With Tillis in the primary, it was Karl Rove’s establishment group and the establishment liberals of the US Chamber of Commerce who bought the nomination for him.

    While these out of state establishment machines were dumping in big bucks in independent campaigns to push Tillis, our grassroots Republican organizations had their hands tied by Plan of Organization provisions that required them to stay out of primaries. The most they could do was straw polls, and Tillis regularly lost those, showing to anyone who looked where grassroots Republicans were on that primary, but that was largely invisible to the average voter. Indeed, in one Congressional District GOP convention straw poll, Tillis ran a miserable fourth place.

    When major out of state forces are monkeying around in OUR primaries, we do not need local grassroots Republicans shackled by outdated rules on being involved in primaries. They need to be able to fight back openly against the likes of Rove, the Chamber, and McConnell’s PACs.

    The potential of the new 30% threshold for primaries combined with non-Republicans being able to vote to GOP primaries makes the liklihood of the hijacking of our primaries even more of a danger and makes dropping the prohibition on party officials engaging in primaries even more imperative. If Karl Rove and Mitch McConnell can involve themselves in our primaries, then county organizations need to be able to endorse.

    Some state GOP organizations already allow endorsements in primaries, and in some which candidate is endorsed is even printed on the ballot. North Carolina needs to drag its PoO into the 21st century.

  6. What is wrong with you all. You say you are christian; however, you hate. You all hate everything and everybody. Don’t you have anything better to do?

  7. Tillis has never been a true representative of the “conservative” element of the party in N.C.—His positions have become even more so outside of the mainstream Republicans in N. C. In my humble opinion he cannot and should not expect to be reelected or elected to any position in our State.
