They’re CAVING. (Um, SURPRISE ?????)

Remember the bill of goods we got sold about the CRomnibus vote? Every North Carolina Republican — except Walter Jones and Mark Meadows — followed right along with leadership in giving Barry Obama the funding he needed following his amnesty decree. ‘We’ll get him early…

Setting the table for the amnesty sellout

Remember the kerfluffle late last year over the CRomnibus?  Boehner, McConnell & co. all told us that they would only fund Homeland Security through February. The organs of DHS that would deal with the implementation of amnesty would not be funded, we were told. Well….

Richard Burr, a Ted Cruz ally? (*Um, Riiiiiiiiiight.*)

That’s what the DC establishment’s steno pool over at The Politico would have us believe: […] Seven of the 20 Republicans who voted against Cruz are up for reelection in two years, including Sens. Dan Coats of Indiana, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Ron Johnson of…

DC GOP seeking vengeance against Cruz, Lee after CRomnibus fight

Reagan biographer and Human Events editor John Hayward has summed up the recently completed CRomnibus fight in Congress nicely: They say politics makes for strange bedfellows.  Somehow the Republican base always ends up being the bedfellow that gets kicked to the cold winter floor while…

#CRomnibus: Foxx cheers it; Holding apologizes for himself

US Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-5) is making use of the cromnibus talking points disseminated by Boehner & co.: “While an omnibus spending bill is not ideal, it allows changes to policy that a continuing resolution simply cannot. For example, this legislation includes provisions to help…

CRomnibus passes Senate. Burr helps. (*Um, Surprise ?!*)

Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his crew put up a good fight, but — in the end — the horrible, horrible, evil, blood-sucking, baby-killing, puppy-kicking CRomnibus passed the US Senate 56-40. Cruz, Mike Lee (R-UT), and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed a point of order vote to…

TWO MORE THINGS to hate about CRomnibus

This $1.1 trillion travesty fully funds ObamaCare, amnesty AND Renee Ellmers’s vitally-important women’s museum. It gives some lucrative sweetheart treats to Wall Street and bankers. All of our Republicans from North Carolina — except Walter Jones (R-3) — were good Boehner sycophants, did as they were…

Hudson: CRomnibus a great victory in fight against O-Care, amnesty

Richard Hudson, the former CEO of Cabarrus Marketing who currently represents North Carolina’s 8th district, says the passage of the CRomnibus was a great victory in the fight against amnesty and ObamaCare.  Seriously.  (No, seriously.) Here he is following in the footsteps of that other…

Lots more to hate about CRomnibus

It added to our already out-of-control federal debt.  It’s fully funded ObamaCare and amnesty. It’s paying for Renee Ellmers’s museum.   But it looks like there’s even more to hate about John Boehner’s pet monster. The CRomnibus legislation included some revisions to campaign finance law…

Renee + microphone = one hot mess

It’s always an adventure when you put a camera and / or microphone in front of US Rep. Renee Ellmers.  She’ll berate her constituents on camera.     She’ll get into a knock-down, drag-out cat-fight with syndicated radio host Laura Ingraham. On Friday, she went on…
