Tillis lying his way to the finish line

 

LIE is the nicest word I can come up with to describe the latest ad from the Thom Tillis reelection campaign. (It’s running every day during Rush’s show. )  Here are some samples of its claims:

 

Oh, and this hit the paper today:

 

 

“Somebody” got The N&O footage of Tillis jumping with the Army’s Golden Knights.  Not anyone can do that.  It’s a privilege normally reserved for serious VIPs — like former president George HW Bush.  Tillis’s current seat on the Senate Armed Services Committee likely helped him  make this happen.  And staging a photograph mid-jump?

 

THAT cost some money.  And the fact that it’s done NOW sure does make it look political.  (What do you want to bet this shows up in future Tillis campaign propaganda?)

 

 

Ads like the one running on Rush TRY to make TT look like he’s been conservative for us since 2014.  But let’s check the record. In 2015-2016,   Tillis earned a conservative rating of 47% from Heritage Action.  (100% is the perfectly ideal conservative.)  In 2017-2018,  Tillis got a 59% rating.   In 2019-2020,  Tillis has a 94% rating, while Burr is stuck at 47%.

 

Wow.  Failing grades his whole time in office EXCEPT for re-election year.  This guy has voted for special treatment for illegal aliens and quotas for copyrights and trademarks.  Thom Tillis loves government.

 

Garland Tucker is the best chance we have to correct this mistake from 2014.  Don’t be stupid and fall for this Sandi Smith nonsense.  She and her husband install solar panels for a living.  Their livelihood depends on the solar goons — who happen to be Tillis’s good buddies.  Her purpose in the race is to split the conservative vote to help Tillis slither through the primary to the general.  She’s no different than Mark Harris in 2014.

  1. Trump also trumpets Tillis’ bill to sue sanctuary cities…,Which with a democrat controlled house is absolutely worthless. He did not push it in trumps first two years

  2. I completely agree. The worst lie is painting
    his opponents as attacking him for his “conservative” views on immigration, which is a double lie. His opponents are conservative and he is the amnesty leaning liberal on immigration. As Speaker of the NC House, he
    favored driver permits for illegal immigrants.
    I have breakfast with 6 other men a couple times a week. The talk on Tillis is 100% negative. In fact it is more than negative. it is outrage.

  3. To maintain our steady march toward immorality, anti-Christianity, destruction, and Babylon, we need Tillis to keep us going down that road. If God lets it happen, we have a clue.

  4. POTUS had to endorse Tillis for party unity. At one of the 2019 rallies, the President said, “Thom’s really helped us in the last 3 months.” Tillis betrayed – yes, BETRAYED – President Trump in the first years of President Trump’s Administration and I, for one, and many of my dedicated conservative friends, WILL NOT FORGET!

    It is tough to beat an incumbent, but if we all get behind Garland Tucker, he can win. We were fooled in 2014. Let’s not be fooled again! MR. TUCKER REMINDS US THAT TILLIS HAS ABOUT a 50% CONSERVATIVE RATING. WHY WOULD WE VOTE FOR HALF A CONSERVATIVE? GARLAND TUCKER 2020!

  5. Someone needs to tell POTUS that he is betting on the wrong horse. Tillis has done nothing to support Trump and he has absolutely failed the people of NC. There is a record that he cannot deny. Garland Tucker 2020!

    1. I have written to the White House to tell him that no one likes Tillis in NC. Poor guy Trump doesn’t know.

  6. That has to be a fake photo of Senator Tillis jumping. They would never allow him to jump without a helmet.

    1. While GHWB wore a soft helmet jumping with the Golden Knights, there are plenty of photos of contemporary celebrities making tandem jumps without headgear. Of course we can expect to see the Tillis photo op used frequently, but not as often as astronaut (former [yeah!] Senator) Bill Nelson’s NASA photos. That was great use of limited resources…not!

  7. Interesting. It’s like throwing a bunch of numbers in a pot, stirring it up, pulling them back out and saying “see, it all adds up”… Really? So you think Tucker is a better man? You will throw him under the bus just as soon as your “pot number recipe” fails to give you the numbers you desire. Tucker will not win the seat and we will loose a seat in the senate. A 47, 57 or 67% conservative is better than a 100% left marching liberal. You have found your “guy” and you will do anything to make Tillis look bad…

    1. If you believe a politician with no principles (other than raising money from DC & special interests) makes a better general election candidate support Tillis. In 2014 he did not run as a squish but as a conservative.

      Tucker is a true conservative who will win in 2020!

  8. Looks like a picture of Biden to me. I agree, I don’t think they would allow anyone to jump without a helmet. We have got to be willing to dump incumbents for a better choice!

  9. I cant help but wonder if U S Senator Tillis remembers what N C Rep Tillis said in 2013 in reference to some political issues in eastern N C. That would be ” politically Republicans can afford to lose a couple of seats and hold on to the majority.”

  10. Tillis is just the latest squish incumbent US Senator that Trump has endorsed. It would appear that Mitch McConnell has too much clout at the White House. Trump has generally gone with the conservative in the open seat races, but not when there is a RINO incumbent.

    TIllis is just not acceptable. Many conservatives will refuse to vote for him, primary or general. Renominating Tillis is a good way to lose this seat to the Democrats.

  11. Far too many of us held our nose and voted for Tillis last time…..and that is the operative phrase for us this time…..”last time”!

    One and out just like his predecessor!
