Mark Walker

3 Stooges blabber on about Impeachment inquiry

They're not the sharpest tools in the shed:

In a statement, U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-5th, said she was disappointed with Pelosi’s announcement of an impeachment inquiry into Trump. The 5th District includes Forsyth County and much of Northwest North Carolina.

“I cannot say I’m at all surprised,” Foxx said. “Obsession over the 2016 election results has consumed the Democratic Party and dominated (its) agenda as the House majority."

This phone call happened in Summer of 2019. And one of the reasons why Trump still thinks it's "okay" to use foreign governments to help him win elections is because people like you have done absolutely nothing to dissuade him or reign him in. In fact, you've actively opposed any investigations into what actually happened back in 2016, which proves you know what he did was wrong. Here's another idiot:

Tillis troubles

Take a look at Thomas' breakdown of the 2020 US Senate race. On one side, a possible primary challenge from Mark Walker, representing the Christianist wing of the Republican Party. On the other side, two-faced Thom Tillis and a couple of other challengers.

NC's GOP Congressmen lining up to take lone female Republican leader's job

Like misogynistic sharks at a feeding frenzy:

The lone female member of House Republican leadership is under siege in D.C. and back home in Washington state. In Congress, several fellow GOP members are pining for her job, questioning her effectiveness as chairwoman of the conference and weighing whether to challenge her.

At least one Republican, Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina, is seriously considering challenging McMorris Rodgers, several of those sources said. But the other lawmakers who want her job are hoping McMorris Rodgers steps down or runs for another position.

Of course that had to come from anonymous sources, because Mark Walker would never give anyone a straight answer on the record. He is a master at dodging questions (and people), and if you ask him about this he'd probably launch into a poorly thought-out diatribe about government getting out of the way of business. Or whatever is percolating in that walnut-sized brain of his at the time. But she probably won't get promoted either, because little Paddy McHenry has got plans of his own:

HB2 Proponent Rep. Mark Walker uses Greensboro vigil as political event

Walker called Bruce Springsteen a "bully" for canceling concerts in NC over HB2 in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

Here's what one person saw at the vigil in Greensboro for the victims of the Orlando tragedy last night.

Greensboro N&R endorses Fjeld over crazy local pastor

A victory for common sense:

Our choice is Fjeld, who lives in Orange County and worked as general counsel for the UNC system after many years in private law practice.

The truth about Walker is a bit difficult to pin down. To an extent, Fjeld has a point. Walker promises to introduce legislation “clearly stating that all life begins at conception,” a position that raises tremendous potential complications. He opposes stem-cell research. He supports school vouchers, a flat tax and getting “government out of the way of our economy.” He also made disturbing remarks about bombing Mexico and President Barack Obama declaring “Sharia law and martial law,” which he later retracted.

A few weeks ago it appeared the N&R was gearing itself up to endorse Walker, going out of its way to apologize and rationalize his behavior. The fact they couldn't bring themselves to commit for him is very telling, and will hopefully have more of an impact than the usual newspaper endorsement would.

N&R continues to apologize for Mark Walker's crazy talk

If it walks like a Tea Party duck:

Mark Walker does not think Barack Obama may declare martial or Sharia law. He does not really believe the president has been spending billions of dollars — with a B! — on family vacations. He doesn’t actually have no qualms about bombings at the border that could start a war with Mexico. But he still says these things. Why?

Because there’s something in him that wants to please a crowd, be it a Tea Party rally or a small clutch of cynical journalists. He can’t help himself. He gets carried away. And that makes for some great performances — but it doesn’t help you understand who he really is, what he really thinks.

You have to say one thing about the News & Record: They are loyal to their locally-brewed candidates. If I had to place my bet this very moment, I would say the paper is going to (unwisely) endorse Mark Walker in the race for the NC-06 seat. All this hand-wringing about Walker being a really good guy but a "naïve" politician is likely cover for the real issue: Mark Walker has been a preacher and civic leader in Greensboro, while Laura Fjeld hails from way over there in Orange County. Case closed.

Mark Walker would have no qualms about bombing Mexico

This guy is in two heated contests. First, he wants to be the Congressman representing the 6th District of North Carolina. And second, he's in the running for America's Dumbest Congressional Candidate Ever.

Question: Mr Walker, I want to ask you how you feel about military, using the military to secure our southern border? I know a lot of people holler Posse Comitatus, that's when the military out enforcing local laws, guarding the border is not the same thing. And we've got other people, other countries going, "Why can't we guard our own?"

Walker: Well, my first answer for that is we need to utilize the National Guard as much as we can. But, I will tell you If you have foreigners who are sneaking in with drug cartels to me that is a national threat and if we got to go laser or blitz somebody with a couple of fighter jets for a little while to make our point, I don't have a problem with that either. So yea, whatever you need to do."

Moderator: "I hope you wouldn't have any qualms about starting up a little war with Mexico."

Walker: "Well, we did it before, if we need to do it again, I don't have a qualm about it."

As a commenter said on YouTube, "the stooopid, it burns."
