From Russia — um, RICHARD, with Love

    No, it’s not the title of Daniel Craig’s swan song as the fabled agent 007.   We’re talking about the latest buffoonery from our special-needs senior US senator who has allowed Democrats to hijack the committee he chairs:   In a bipartisan report,…

Burr: No Russia-Trump collusion evidence. (But I’m still open to the idea.)

The Associated Press is the latest driveby entity to extend Richard Burr’s ’15 minutes of fame’ as the useful Republican idiot in the Russia collusion “investigation”: For much of the last two years, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr has been the Russia investigator who…

Speaking of USELESS Paul Shumaker clients …

It’s all over Washington that US Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has been employing a Chinese spy for, oh, TWENTY YEARS.    She sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee with our good pal Dick Burr — with access to all kinds of secrets Beijing would looooooove…

#ncpol: Our (“Corrupt”?) useful idiot in DC

I’m more of the opinion that Dick Burr is just not that smart. But this blogger has him pegged with the (bad) c-word: The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) is the same committee that Michael Caputo told: “God damn you to hell“, and for…

#ncpol: Is it 2022 YET ???

It seems Richard Burr is not going to let Thom Tilli$$$ earn that suckweasel certification uncontested.  Burr is chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, but instead of showing some leadership he’s following Democrat Mark Warner around like a puppy on this Russian election meddling nonsense….

‘Tricky Dick’ Burr: “I’m Sam Ervin! I’m SAM, I am!” ( Jim Morrill SAID so.)

The president is trying to rally his troops to deal with arguably the worst crisis facing the country, and Richard Burr is preoccupied with FANTASY: President Trump told GOP senators at the White House on Wednesday that they should cancel their August recess and not leave town…

Drivebys BOOST Burr, BUTCHER History (and, of course, THE TRUTH)

The drivebys sooooooo want this Russia nonsense to be the next Watergate scandal.  Just read some of the latest foolishness from the Charlotte Observer’s somnambulant scribbler Jim Morrill:  On a Saturday night in October 1973, U.S. Sen. Sam Ervin was dining at Asheville’s Grove Park…

(*Sigh*) Walter. Walter. Walter.

I’m sure we’ve all had those experiences at social gatherings when we witness someone we really care about making a scene AND a fool out of themselves. In most cases, I am a fan of congressman Walter Jones.  He and I are both cut from…

What in the world, Walter Jones?

I’m afraid that our 3rd district congressman is tiptoeing into ‘useful idiot’ territory:  U.S. Rep. Walter Jones, from eastern North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District, became the first Republican member of the House of Representatives this week to support a proposed independent citizen commission to look…

Drivebys: American voters didn’t elect Trump. Russia did.

I’ve been watching driveby media for a long time.  I thought I’d seen it at its worst under President Reagan and during the tenure of Senator Jesse Helms.  Donald Trump is 17 days away from being sworn and the drivebys are making their behavior during…
