Dear @ncgop. The only body empowered by the Constitution to determine constitutionality of an impeachment trial is the Senate. They did, so saying it isn't is like a judge saying something is inadmissible, but juror goes, 'screw it, I am considering it anyway'.#ncpol #GOPisdead

They actually took a vote on the lack of Constitutionality and it failed. But just like the Big Lie, these things live on.
RECAP: Fmr @NCGOP chair pleads guilty to lying to @fbi - no censure.@RepDavidRLewis pleads guilty to fed finance crimes - no @NCGOP censure.
Lt. Gov. @markrobinsonNC won’t apologize for anti-Semitism - no censure.@SenatorBurr votes to convict Trump - censure. #ncpol

And this is why naive efforts at bi-partisanship are a complete waste of time. They have no moral compass, whatsoever.
Experts agree that safely reopening schools is essential for the wellbeing of vulnerable kids. Education policy must be focused on in-person learning. Sign my petition in support of SB37 https://t.co/gmc7JSPGSs #NCGA #NCPOL

Show me the money, or stick that petition where the sun don't shine. "Safely" doesn't magically happen, it takes resources.

Yeah, I mean, no. At least not as a Democrat, and apparently not as a Republican, either:
Kimrey Rhinehardt was one of the many North Carolina voters that decided to leave the GOP following the Capitol riot, describing it as "the straw that broke the camel's back."
While speaking with Newsweek Rhinehardt explained that she first aligned herself with the Republican Party when she was around 11 years old and went on to work as a Capitol Hill staff member for 28 years. Rhinehardt told Newsweek that she officially filed the paperwork to change her party affiliation in the days after the Capitol riots, saying "it took maybe two minutes."
"I wanted conservative judges, I wanted a strong pro-Israel president," Rhinehardt, who voted for Trump in 2016 and wrote in a candidate in 2020, said. "There were things that I was willing to overlook to get my priorities attended to but never could I [have] ever foreseen the damage and destruction that came along with the good things the president did. I thought I could hold my nose and wait it out but I feel like [Trump] lit a match to burn the party down on his way out."
I don't even know where to start...
Participation in the summer program would be voluntary for at-risk students. NC kindergarten students who participate would be exempt from retention. No new state funds would be provided. Instead program would be w/in funds available, incl. fed COVID dollars. #nced #ncpol #ncga

Of course no new funds are provided. Tim Moore can't grasp the idea of "unfunded mandates," because his head is so far up his...

I'll save you the trouble: written by a tax "think tank" staffer and an ALEC dude. This is also known as a circle jerk, but you'll have to get the definition for that elsewhere...
This is a big shift -- Program Evaluation Division is sort of the legislature's watchdog for waste and inefficiencies across government agencies. It's been considered a model for other states. Now it's being axed without any public deliberation #ncpol #ncga https://t.co/HNrVsHjd3t

That's because BergerMoore are nothing more than partisan hacks. They don't care about efficiency, or accuracy, or objective analysis. That stuff is a pointless distraction from power-grabbing.
Had the same question...so the folks who claim to dislike/don’t participate in “cancel culture” are “canceling” those in their party that they disagree with? Okay. (Definitely looking at you, @NCGOP ) #CountryOverParty #AmericaOrTrump #ncpol #NCGOP https://t.co/3PDzbKUGyb

And a gullible idiot. Seriously, what did he think would be accomplished with that $2.5 million? That Trump's lawyers would pull a rabbit out of a hat and reverse the results in four different states? Dude has been smoking the good stuff...

Whereas Thommy, as usual, voted with the current of corruption in the GOP. While I take an anti-nausea pill, here's your Onion:
