Senate GOP leaders sounding like Biden allies on Electoral College challenge
No wonder Tillis and Burr are so quiet about Wednesday’s action:
[…]More than two dozen House Republicans have said they will try to challenge results, and a dozen GOP senators will join them — even though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has urged senators to stay away from this. […]
Senate Republican leaders have not been able to keep their party unified through this process, but they expect to have the votes to confirm Biden’s win, despite as many as a dozen Republican defections. Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the No. 2 Senate Republican,said last month that any challenges are “going down like a shot dog.”Republican senators such as Mitt Romney of Utah and Ben Sasse of Nebraska have characterized their colleagues’ challenges to certified election results as dangerous.[…]
Richard Burr is retiring. He won’t face the voters again. So, there’s no pressure on him to do the right thing. Tillis just slipped by another weak opponent — again with less than 50 percent. He’s safe from voter scrutiny for another six years, (Of course, voting for an election audit will likely interfere with Thommy’s cash-whoring. And the man CAN’T have that.)

The evidence of widespread election fraud in all of the battleground States is quite obvious…Burr and Tillis are card carrying Rinos -Both serving their last terms in my opinion. Trump is the only reason Tillis won and that is a fact – Now it’s time for VP Pence to deliver the KNOCKOUT PUNCH tomorrow !
On this one, ALL are unmasked for ALL to see how they vote and their allegiance. In the past, the GOP stayed masked, lied and deceived and the uni-party efforts survived. It was always, next time, I’ll fix it, those liberal, left-wing dems. This time and this way, the cards are all on the table.
And the NC GOP has lots of explaining to do. How did these 2 rise to the top? Trump carried NC 2x. Why are they opposing him? Trump likely carried Tillis 1st time against Hagan and McConnell’s PAC and Cal carried him the last time. Burr’s replacement cannot be another Tillis, McCrory.
Why is this confusing? We showed both these men don’t understand or care about their constitutional oath in 2014 and 2016.( They suffer no consequences for their oath breaking. )Article I section 4 and XII Amendment are clear.
The supreme court’s unconstitutional decision on Texas’s standing was exposed as well. Article III section 3.
Our republic is on life support.
George Washington warned us, The True Keepers of the constitution ….. are we the people.
Here is great example of the unconstitutional Tillis , in his own words
Why would expect anything different?
Liberty is a verb. If you must ask, then you are a serf.
Is it time for a repeat of , “ When in the course of Human events…?”
I have been involved in GOP politics on one form or another since I was 18 years old. (over 30 years). I have seen the Republican Party slowly leave it’s core values. It was during the Brannon/Tillis race that I saw how truly corrupt politics is. We had a solid, Constitutional Conservative in Greg Brannon that would have gone to DC and truly fought for the people and fought to protect our Constitutional rights. but we got Tillis who could care less about either. I’m sick of it all. Thank you Dr. Brannon for your sacrifices that you made for liberty and freedom but I think we have lost both.
You are spot on.
Both Tillis and Burr will go along with anything Biden demands. They will do whatever it takes to keep the Biden Justice Department from indicting Burr for insider trading. North Carolina’s RINO establishment is already trying to line up a RINO to run for Burr’s seat in two years. I don’t think conservatives will stand for it, but conservatives tend to act like sheep at election time. So who knows?
NOT voting for a Dem, but will leave a blank if a RINO, GOPe, Establishment, SWAMP candidate from NC.
Remember, remember and remember the primary process is where we, as a Republican Party, sort our candidates and choose between them. The US Senate race in 2022 begins now with seeking out qualified, constitutionally solid candidates to come forward. I will do what I can to promote early debates and forums but POTENTIAL CANDIDATES MUST COME FORWARD or, once again, we end up living with the results that are chosen for us by the media or special interests.
Memo to Mark—I understand what you are saying, but all you have to do is follow the money. RINO money will flow like a waterfall from the DC GOP Swamp to their chosen candidate in the 2022 Senate seat. How do you think Tillis won his primary six years ago? He was flooded with DC GOP swamp money and no conservative challenger had a chance. Why do we expect anything different in 2022?
I understand the money issue but as we have seen often money cannot buy all elections. But remember the Tillis race was; Tillis, Brannon and Harris. A combination of Brannon and Harris votes into one candidate would have won. We will be working on some election law changes this session so I think the 30% rule needs to go back to 40% as it was before. This will potentially have the effect of conducting a runoff election but it will eliminate the Brannon/Harris splitting of the opposition vote. Smart Strategists know how to play this game so we, the General Assembly, need to counter the strategy of bringing forth a favored candidate and then getting enough others to split the rest thus ensuring the favored candidate wins. I hope you get my point – now is the time to find the candidate that best represents the constitutional/conservative values to challenge the swamp candidate (if there is one). Any ideas??
Oh and let’s not not forget the anti-majority 30% win threshold that the GOP-controlled stuck us with. This time around, County party leaders need to chuck the ncgop rulebook and start endorsing real conservatives.
You’re right, but the RINO cheerleaders will never go for that. At least that’s the situation in my part of the woods.
Harris was placed in the race by Robyn Hayes. At that time our campaign was 4 points ahead of the RINO Tillis. General Assembly changes primary victory, from 50% + 1 to 40%+1.. Everything to stack the deck, for the establishment hack. Now 30%! Thom only got 45%.
2016, I was not a true candidate, according to Burr. He would not debate . I don’t blame him. I don’t believe he can spell constitution.But we accept that and vote for him anyway.
Then after the primary, we are told to vote for the establishment’s choice. Even though Thom’s record was a progressive from day one. We must have the Supreme Court( how’s that worked?The Supreme Court does not have judicial review. They are not final authority. Read, Jefferson, Madison and many others.)We are in this position, because we believe, lesser of two unconstitutional candidates is what we must vote for. Shame on us.
The Bill of Rights are not a gift from the federal government. They are God given Natural Rights, that the federal government cannot infringe upon. Read the preamble, they are restrictive declaratory statements – restricting the federal government, not the individual or the state! IX and X Amendment. But it takes state and federal legislatures to honor their oath!
I was asked to give a speech at NC GOP convention in 2014. I stated , I would not support a progressive from any party.
It’s the constitutional oath, not a party oath!
To change, the individual must never settle. You either believe in what the Declaration states or you don’t.
Freedom, Liberty will never be given, it must be defended.
Dr. Brannon. Please run as an independent. Now is the time. You will win on ideas as Ron Paul did, and won’t need an expensive campaign. The feckless NCGOP has no appeal left to NC conservatives. Conservatives will support a true leader. Mises / Libertarians too.
I’ll support an Indy candidate, Libertarian candidate, open to any other candidates. Never voted a Dem since Carter and now feel same way about GOP, esp in NC. See that Romney now thinks he’s head of RNC….shows where national GOP going and about to chg party affiliation.
I can not hold my nose and vote for a Rhino. I have written Brannon’s name in every spot that a Rhino is running. I would rather vote my conscience than vote for the scum that continues to represent the Republican Party.
