Cowardice: Only TWO NCGOPers on list to protest November 3 president results
That’s right. We have a total of 15 representatives in Congress — 13 House members and two senators. On January 6, there is a plan to contest the presidential election results and kick off a vote fraud investigation. Out of North Carolina’s 15, only Ted Budd and newcomer Madison Cawthorn have committed to protesting the results of the presidential election. At least 140 House members are backing the protest. And all the NCGOP can muster is TWO supporters out of 10 total.
One of the more conspicuously absent names from the House list is Greg Murphy (R-NC). President Trump, The Freedom Caucus, and then-Rep. Mark Meadows worked hard to get Murphy through a tough runoff. Murphy has apparently thanked them all by: (1) distancing himself from The Freedom Caucus, (2). brown-nosing and raising money for the same party leadership that campaigned against him, and (3) staying awfully quiet at a time when Trump needs him. Trump was there for Murphy when Murphy needed him.
Over in the Senate, Josh Hawley (R-MO) is the only senator committed to protesting the electoral college vote. Susan Tillis, wife of Thom, took to Facebook to suggest her hubby doesn’t owe Trump anything. She said Trump had nothing to do with Thom’s victory. Susie attributed the slim victory over ‘Kinky Cal’ to a “great campaign” by Team Tillis. (I guess I just imagined all of those ads I heard and saw where Trump was shown encouraging people to vote for Tillis.).
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is poo-pooing the protest idea. He’s doing his best to kill off the idea. If congressional Republicans won’t stand for spending restraint, small government, or election integrity, what in the hell WILL they stand for?
This year, Democrats may very well seat a losing Democrat from Iowa. In the 1980s, they gave a US House seat in Indiana to a losing Democrat. The Democrats were threatening to block the seating of Mark Harris (R), the actual winner of the 9th district race — over some fabricated vote fraud accusations. (Over a year later, no one has been charged. Dan Bishop (R) now holds the seat rightfully won by Harris.)
Some drive-bys are calling the vote protest “unprecedented.” In 1824, the presidential race went to the US House, where the losing candidate in the national election was voted in as president.

I agree with Susan, Thom only won because of Cal’s cheating. I was going to vote for Cal before that issue came up and then held my nose for Thilli$$ after that issue. He was one who finally had me considering voting for a democrat.
Will someone verify or blow up the rumor or leak that Mitch McConnell’s sister works for the bank of China. Or
I believe you’re thinking of this book: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/04/peter-schweizer-mitch-mcconnell-benefits-financially-from-the-chinese-government-while-shaping-our-strategy-to-counter-china/
or rather this one: https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2018/05/02/exclusive-peter-schweizer-mitch-mcconnells-deep-financial-ties-to-china-unprecedented-in-u-s-history/
Thanks. I’ll look this up. But now a bigger question…..who the hell is protecting him????
Congratulations to the Murphy campaign brain trust. They did a bang up job creating a false image. All those things mentioned here: Freedom Caucus = not really; standing up to the leadership = saddling up to the leadership; riding Trump’s popularity = coming up AWOL for Trump. Let’s add signing up for the year end porculous fiasco under the pathetic excuse of a relief bill banner and phasing out Fort Bragg in favor of who knows what politically correct bull crap name the left comes up with.
Braxton Bragg was actually a North Carolinian and Murphy is no Walter Jones.
Murphy deserves criticism no doubt, but this one is also on 3rd District GOP primary voters…..they could have made Michael Spéciale their nominee but instead chose a statehouse legislator with a suspect voting record like Murphy.
I think everybody is right across the board. T. is especially right about the 3rd District GOP primary. Yeah, the Murphy campaign manager crafted the exact right message and plastered it all over the media, but primary voters should have been able to wade through all that. That crowded primary field was full of candidates with actual records to be studied, including Murphy’s. People can and do say anything in a campaign season. Talk is cheap.
I hate to even get started on Burr and Tillis. Obviously, North Carolina hasn’t had Senate representation since Helms and Faircloth. By God repeal the 17th Amendment.
Please tell me again why we hold our nose and vote for the Republican Party? The lesser of 2 evils? Ha! What a joke!
These republicans that do not stand with President Trump on this election fraud are currently serving their last terms in congress. They will be voted out,,,what a bunch of spineless Rinos they are….I hear Mittens Romney has the ultimate plan for distributing the vaccine…he is gonna strap it on top of his car like he did his dog when he went on vacation,,, what Loser he will always be……
Tillis is no surprise. Neither is Burr. If we were hoping Tillis would reform, we were just stupid. Burr will spend the next two years of his hapless term doing whatever Biden tells him to do. He is under investigation by the Justice Department, soon to be run by a Biden AG, and anyone who thinks Burr will cross Biden needs a psychiatric examination.
Surprised? Same GOP that gives us these losers after losers for Senate and House and every top of ticket office in NC. NCGOP destroyed the appellate courts and state supreme court. GOP holds/held leadership in GA that is now slipping away b/c they did just what McConnell, Ryan, McCarthy, Boehner do or have done. Listen ZERO and represent ZERO their constituency. The GOP deserves NO further support and won’t get any from me. Murphy is my rep over here in the east and I was NOT a supporter and repeatedly told by others ‘he was the man’. I did attend 1 mtg by a local MD and I left still a skeptic. Guess whose perception was correct? I come from the Jesse Helms days…I KNOW Conservatism when I hear and see it.
