Burr concerned about radical Islamic group's threat to US


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- US Senator Richard Burr made some stops in the Port City today.

The two-term senator said 10 years ago, when he was on the House Intelligence Committee, there were about three things we would worry about before he went to bed at night.

Now,he says there are around 30.

Topping the list is the threat of ISIS, a radical Islamic group now causing problems in Iraq.

"I think ISIS is the number one terror threat in the world. They have more weapons, they have more money and they have more geography than Al Qaeda ever had," Bur said.

He also said he thinks this group is more of a danger than Al Qaeda ever was.

Burr is using fear to keep the police militarized. A lot of his cronies are military industrial complex profiteers and they don't like the questions being raised by Ferguson events.

Senator Burr is also a proponent of exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG). What Burr isn't telling us is that the price we consumers pay for electricity is already at an all time high, and exporting LNG will triple that price, as we will then be forced to pay what the Europeans pay. The Senator loves to fix it so that his corporate cronies are in even greater positions to suck the citizens of North Carolina dry. One of Senator Burr's largest campaign contributors is Duke Energy. Wouldn't the Duke Energy oligarchs just love to charge triple the price for its electricity?


I know he is not up for election this year, but, you can tell it's an election year because republican'ts are trying to scare everybody again.
The scariest thing is Tom Tillis.
