Thom Tillis wins GOP Senate
primary in North Carolina

USA Today, by Catalina Camia

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/6/2014 9:39:22 PM

WASHINGTON — Thom Tillis won the GOP Senate nomination North Carolina on Tuesday, delivering a big win to establishment Republicans over Tea Party insurgents. Tillis, speaker of the North Carolina House, easily got over the 40% threshold needed to avoid a runoff in the closely watched Senate primary. Obstetrician Greg Brannon, who had the support of Tea Party favorite Rand Paul, was coming in second in the eight-person field as results were being reported by the Associated Press. The North Carolina Senate race was the first primary contest pitting the Tea Party and grass-roots conservatives vs. mainstream Republicans. The skirmishes will

Dear T(h)om.
I live in your state. I won´t vote for you. I won´t vote for that --- Kay either. You are a machine politician, an establishment republicrat. Just look at what the establishment has gotten me so far.
I simply have no time to waste voting for you while I should be preparing for what the establishment has in mind for me. I´ll get on with it now. Bye...

I don´t disagree with #2-- but isn´t that what put Obama back in the WH in 2012?

Will we lose the Senate to the Dems again or does it really make no difference at all?

So the media won´t refer to real terrorists as terrorists and instead will use the term insurgent.

They they refer to persons running for public office as insurgents and carry on with the silly military metaphors - skirmishes, etc.

Exactly right, #3. I believe it´s called "cutting off your nose to spite your face". Some things never change and it sounds as if some get their way, the Senate will stay with the democrats. Personally, I don´t understand that way of thinking, but then that´s just me.

#2, I worked with Thom Tillis some time back in the private sector and think highly of him though I know a lot can change over the years and I worked with him long ago. I understand your frustration because you´d like someone else but I hope you are just venting. As George Orwell famously said, pacifism was objectively pro-fascist; not voting for the Republican against Hagan is objectively pro-Hagan and indirectly, pro-Obama. I had to vote for John McCain in 2008. I didn´t want him but I voted for him because I didn´t want Barack Obama at all. #3 hits the nail on the head. I want whoever will defeat Kay Hagan. I don´t have any choice at all since I live in New York. Please exercise the choice you have wisely.

This will continue to happen until conservatives unite and put up one candidate against these establishment RINOs. Until then, the RINO will cruise to victory while the conservatives have a food fight.

#2, you may be bitterly disappointed because a more conservative candidate did not win the nomination. Or you may simply be a Democrat troll seeking to poison the discussion, discourage real conservatives from voting and undermine our chances of wresting the Senate from Democrat control. If the former, than I understand your disappointment, but urge you to man up and unite with others to break the Democrat stranglehold on our country. If the latter, then you should know that we are on to your kind. So just go away and stop trying to poison the well here.

I know Thom Tillis very well and supported him 100 percent--as I will in November.

I am very conservative and believe strongly in the principles put forth at the founding of the ´Tea Party´. It was Taxed Enough Already!

Tillis not only gets that, he has done something about it. As Speaker of the House he cut taxes, and he did a lot of other conservative things too--both economically and socially conservative.

I resent it that short-sighted losers like #2 want to claim they own conservativism. You don´t. You are an enabler for Obama, Reid, Schumer and Hagan.

Please don´t let people like #2 destroy our chances to turn this country around!

Chris Stirewalt was very excited tonight that a Thom Tillis win would probably give the Senate seat to the Republicans. Now what is wrong with that, pouters?

Most of us have figured out that sticking with our candidate through the primary is good - and then voting for the Republican against a Democrat in the general election is the overall winning strategy.

We have some lo-fos here, too. Just don´t grasp the concept. They gave us Obama while they sat home and sulked. They are what is really wrong with the Republican Party....

I am #2. I try to never post twice. But thank you #5. If you have to vote for T(h)om Tillis, it simply makes no difference what you do. That is what it´s come to folks. Number 5 now realizes that there is no political solution when you get the choice between T(h)om Tillis and Kay Hagan. If only we had come to our senses 30 or so years ago. Too late. A dollar short and a day late, that´s us.

Greg was on Mark Levin´s show the other day. I was praying for him, but had a gut feeling that the Repstablishment Steam roller machinery would flatten him like an empty beer can and they did. I am beginning to hate Lame Stream Republicans more than Democrats. At least the non Tea Party establishment types. So Tillis will now join ranks with his new play pals, McCain Graham and Ayott and the rest of the RINO´s and speed up amnesty, tax increases, global warming and increasing the spending on shovel ready jobs.

I only have one question for Mr. Tillis, who enjoyed support from the National Chamber of Commerce: Do you embrace the Chamber´s position re immigration reform? Out here in the West we are up to our ying-yangs with all the sneak-ins and the regime has no intention of sending them home. That is my litmus test.

Divide and conquer comes to mind.

I, for one, will never fall for that strategy.

The Senate has great power and that power lies with the party that has the majority. We have seen what a Dem dominated Senate can do. How can any thinking person plant their feet and say they will let a Democrat win a Senate seat, that "there is no difference"? There is a BIG difference.

I wouldn´t have the guts to publicly opine that it doesn´t make any difference to me if the Dems win the Senate again. More so, I would do everything I could to keep it from happening.

Muncsdad and I are original members of the Tea Party here--not RINOs, etc. Greg Brannan would not have won against Kay Hagan. It´s funny, he ran as a republican but proudly announced he did not vote for the republican (Mitt Romney) for president AND did what he could to discourage others from voting for him. He and all the self-righteous, smug, purists are the reason we have Barack Obama ruining America.

Tillis is a conservative. He will be able to defeat Hagan and help take back the Senate.

Gregg Brannon urged people NOT to vote for Romney in 2012. Fact.

Seems some of his supporters are just like him.

To those who have attacked Tillis, you don´t know him. He is a strong conservative who can and will defeat a extreme leftist--Kay Hagan.

Unlike #2, I would have enthusiastically supported any of the other conservative GOP candidates in the race had Tillis not won. And doing the (h) thing making fun of how Thom spells his name is just plain childish...

As for the "real" conservatives getting together and choosing one person to run, lots of luck If you wanted to run badly, would you give it up so another person could be the only one to run?

I´ve read a good deal about the 2012 elections. It wasn´t Tea Party types who stayed home, it was a combination of Perot voters, Reagan democrats, and blue collar conservatives. But the biggest reasons Romney lost have been reported in detail. He never wanted to run, hated the whole idea, had no state campaign operations to speak of vs the democrats--all this was known by the RNC who were fine with it. Also Romney refused to spend any of his famous millions on his campaign when it desperately needed it in the last few months. Instead of campaigning in key swing states he would stop campaigning and take time off to raise money. Romney, his sons, RNC staff and consultants still made $1 billion at the end.
If there´s a poison well anywhere it´s obviously those running the Republican Party.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
