Tuesday Twitter roundup

My sentiments exactly:

Tuesday Twitter roundup

This is what obstruction looks like:

It's not the crime, it's the cover-up. Because the cover-up is exceptionally strong circumstantial evidence that the crime did actually occur.

McCrory sez he's not running for Governor

But he might bring his 3 E's (whatever the hell they are now) to the U.S. Senate in 2022:

Former Gov. Pat McCrory will not seek a return to the governor's mansion this cycle but will "seriously consider" running for the U.S. Senate in two years.

That's when current Sen. Richard Burr plans to retire, leaving an open seat. On his Charlotte-area radio show Thursday morning, McCrory said he considered running for governor but didn't want to contribute to society's division.

Translated: "I'm askeered of Dan Forest's rabid fanbase." Also, I thought you liked stepping on toes? Toe-stepping your way to a more Educated, Efficient...Energetic North Carolina? Yeah, you're right. I'm having way too much fun with this. And now I feel forced to defend Myers Park Pat after reading this from Mark Walker:

Tuesday Twitter roundup

No big surprise, but it still needs exposure:

And I'm also waiting for the faux-Libertarians to howl about government waste...still waiting...

Chapter 12 in the one-upmanship of Dan Forest:

In another post Justin is wondering just how Forest got a hold of 100,000 teacher e-mail addresses, but that's an easy one to answer: Mark Johnson.

Dropping like flies:

If I were a betting man, I'd wager it has very little to do with "shifting boundaries" and a lot to do with BergerMoore turning every session into a marathon; driving to Raleigh by 8:30 a.m. nearly every day, and having night sessions a couple times a week. That's not how any of this is supposed to work.

This needs to be shoved into the faces of Trump supporters on a regular basis:

And Thom Tillis owns it, too.

It's always something with these guys;

Just like Trump, make the deal and then refuse to pay your bills until some court makes you do it.

NC National Guard now protecting Syrian oilfields

Right in the crosshairs of ISIS, and anybody else who wants that oil:

The mechanized National Guard brigade combat team that is tasked with protecting infrastructure has been in Syria for a little over a week now, a key part of the U.S. military's repositioning of forces. While Pentagon officials will not put an exact figure on the number of troops expected to remain in Syria, they have said it is likely to be a few hundred fewer than the roughly 1,000 troops deployed there before October.

The policy changes have shaken up an already volatile region and severely tested the relationship between the U.S. and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, one of Washington's closest allies in the fight against ISIS.

The 30th Brigade Combat Team had recently deployed to Kuwait to replace a previous unit, and I had hoped their tenure would be uneventful. But when I saw reports of Trump wanting to move in some tanks and other armored vehicles to "provide security" for the oilfields in Syria, I got a sinking feeling. And with them being deployed after a monumental clusterfuck by Trump, I'm even more concerned:

Tuesday Twitter roundup

I'm proud I voted for him:

His actions since taking office have reflected a mindset of righting wrongs, and protecting the physical and economic health of North Carolinians. And we need him to continue doing that after 2020.
