Tillis mailing underscores his hypocrisy

Friday, November 8, 2019

I have recently received an email from Sen. Thom Tillis where he says he is so concerned about the Sanctuary cities and the release of some illegal immigrants, that he believes will so threaten the safety of the American people. 

However, I have yet to hear the senator say anything about him advocating the banning of automatic military style weapons, which have been used to slaughter hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans, school age and older. Aren't our school kids valuable? When is enough, enough?

I also haven't heard the senator come out with a statement on the threat of climate change and global warming, which has, or eventually will, adversely affect all his constituents, especially on North Carolina's east coast, as well as the rest of the people of the world.

Will he continue to abide by his party's “head in the sand” policy or will he eventually recognize what should be done to stop, or at least reduce, the ever increasing threat?

I doubt that the senator will ever follow his “Christian values” and do what's really needed for the protection of his constituents.

I know of no one who has been more of a pest to their friends and family than I have over the subject of solar electric farms in North Carolina. (Not to be confused with roof top solar panels on homes with battery storage).

You can not drive anywhere and miss seeing a solar farm near the highway. I…

I commend the efforts of those seeking to provide aid and assistance in the area to address mental health issues, especially for our young people, as reported in the article "Squelching the Stigma" in The Daily Reflector on Saturday, Nov. 2. As we consider this though, we need to take a broader…

There was a letter to the editor in The Daily Reflector (Deceiver in Chief, Nov. 3) that listed supposed and possible untrue statements made by our president. I will not take issue with that. My concern is that that writer and a lot of others do not understand the role of the president.

In a recent letter Bill Redding appears to lament the downswing in Americans describing themselves as Christians. (Religion should not dominate politics, Oct. 30) Then he goes on to describe all the sins of people who are not truly led by either Testament of the Bible, both Christians and Jews.…

“This president will be in power for only a short time, but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name. To my Republican colleagues: Step outside your media and social bubble. History will not look kindly on disingenuous, frivolous and false defenses of this man.” These…

A few months ago Harris Teeter grocery store closed its smaller store location on the corner of Charles and 14th street, leaving a big hole in the middle of Greenville.

Several of my friends have lamented the loss of this shopping option near the downtown area and close to many families in my…

Five thousand gold stars to the president for successfully taking out not only Baghdadi but also Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir a day later. Major accomplishments. And only a fool would have told the Congress in advance; they are worse than a torn fish net for keeping a secret.

In response to the Oct. 23 letter "Mainstream media is full of deception," let me remind the writer and your readers of Mr. Trump's own deception to the American people and to the world, to wit:

Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States: False.

Trump's father was born in…
