#ncpol: Tilli$$$ on BOTH sides of the Trump Wall

Let’s travel back in time to our junior senator’s April visit to Tucker Carlson’s show:

Our junior US senator was Tucker Carlson’s victim Monday night.  And the Fox host sat there for most of the segment in utter disbelief — like we often do at this site — at the utter bullshit and nonsense pouring out of this charlatan’s mouth.

 

 

Carlson introduced Tillis as opposing the wall, which the senator quickly, um, “corrected”:

 

“I don’t oppose the wall. I oppose putting a 30-foot structure on top of a 30,000 foot steep cliff.  I oppose taking down two fences separated by an all-weather road that border patrol patrols in California that’s working.

 

 I oppose things that people on the ground think are not in their best interests and those are the folks that go out and put on the bullet proof vests every day and actually have to protect the border, who tell me the wall in certain places makes sense but intelligence, reconnaissance and other resources make sense elsewhere […] 

 What’s “working” in California?   Here’s an immigration official from just last year saying we might as well surrender on guarding the border.  Here’s something about border patrol agents enthusiastically backing Trump during last year’s campaign.  You know, when he was promising to build a wall. 

 

 

 

Since then, he’s been booted from the amnesty sell-out talks for — get this — being mealy-mouthed and disingenuous.  Now comes The Charlotte Observer editorial board baffled by the bull-crap spewing from the man from Florida, Tennessee, Cornelius Huntersville’s mouth:

Legislating is the art of finding bearable compromise – or at least it used to be before polarization made giving an inch a sign of political weakness. But a proposal this week that would trade the well-being of millions of young immigrants for a multi-billion dollar border wall is a bad compromise for most everyone not named Donald Trump.

 

The president wants his wall, now with a price tag of at least $18 billion, in exchange for allowing DACA immigrants who were brought here by undocumented parents to stay. Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, who met with Trump last week, says the president won’t sign any compromise that doesn’t include it. “I really encouraged him to remain steadfast in his position,” Tillis said in an interview Sunday on FOX News, and Republicans are expected to offer a more formal deal as early as Tuesday.

 

But the wall Tillis backed Sunday is an impractical and inefficient use of the public’s money. Who says so? Thom Tillis, last April.

 

“We need to recognize that a continuous wall from one end of our Southern border to the other is neither feasible nor effective,” Tillis said in a post on his web site. “It’s basic geology. A 20-foot wall on a 3,000-foot sheer cliff will not stop human crossings or drug trafficking, and neither will a 20-foot wall on the Rio Grande River, where the winding river and soft soil make construction extremely difficult and expensive.”

  1. But, but, but . . . that wall would just be so “unfair” to all of Amnesty Thom’s illegal alien amigos, and it would be such an affront to the US Chamber of Commerce’s entitlement to cheap labor;

    At least Amnesty Thom TIllis is now admitting that his DACA amnesty would involve MILLIONS of illegal aliens, not the hundreds of thousands he and the amnesty hounds and their media flunkies have been saying. The Congressional Budget Office calculates TWO MILLION, but they are usually low on such things as they were on the 1986 Simpson-Mazzolli amnesty.

    We already have one fourth of the citizens of Mexico living illegally in the United States. I guess Amnesty Thom will not be satisfied until they all move here.

  2. I just watched Jeff Flake lambasting Pres. Trump from the floor of the Senate. Pretty bad! But I believe Tillis is WORSE. At least Flake is consistently bad.

    1. Flake’s name fits him perfectly. He is an original member of the pro-amnesty Gang of 8.

      The bad thing is that McConnell and the swamp have someone even worse running in the primary to replace the flake. Martha McSally has a Conservative Review score of 45% which is lower than Flake’s 57%
