    Speaker John Boehner on Thursday said Republicans will not give a “blank check” to President Obama to deal with the crisis on the border. While Boehner (R-Ohio) said no decisions have been made on legislation, he was adamant that there will be strings attached to the emergency funding that Obama has requested to deal with the thousands of unaccompanied children who have entered into the United States. “I can tell you this: We're not giving the president a blank check," Boehner said. "Beyond that, we'll await further discussions with our members before we make a final decision." With Congress set...

    CHARLESTON — With less than a month to go before the filing deadline, Charleston businessman and reality TV show star Thomas Ravenel says he is proceeding with plans to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican Lindsey Graham. Ravenel, who was state treasurer before resigning due to federal drug charges, said Wednesday that he plans soon to complete a petition drive, collecting the signatures of at least 10,000 S.C. voters. That petition would enable him to appear on the ballot this November with three other candidates, including Graham, in a bid for a six-year...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned that the next 9/11 attack could emanate from Iraq and Syria if the U.S. does not take steps to immediately halt the advance of the Islamic militants sweeping toward the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. "We need air power immediately to stop the advance toward Baghdad," Graham said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday, warning that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) - the jihadists who are an offshoot of al Qaeda - could control the entire northern half of the country and use it to march on Jordan and Lebanon while Iran moves...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) offered a pointed rebuttal Sunday to strategists and pundits who say embracing immigration reform will put GOP incumbents at risk in future primaries.Graham said if Republicans let the status quo stand and hope illegal immigrants leave the United States because of poor conditions, they will obliterate their chances of winning the White House in two years. “If we keep playing this game that self deportation is the only answer for the Republican Party, we will have destroyed our chances in 2016 and dealt a death blow to our party because by 2050 the majority of the...
  • South Carolina Senator Tim Scott Outperformed RINO Lindsey Graham by 90,000 Votes

    You might see punditry begin to obfuscate the Lindsey Graham win against the backdrop of the Eric Cantor loss. Their collective goal will be to diminish the visibility of conservative strength and grassroots power (because we all know Graham to be a top shelf Decepticon) and cast aspersions toward us by saying the establishment holds in South Carolina. So, how much support does Graham actually carry? Let me just point out something factual for you to consider. Both Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott were on the same South Carolina GOP primary Ballot.

    COLUMBIA — The six Re­pub­lican challengers trying to beat U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham tried to position themselves as the best choice to replace the two-term incumbent Saturday night during their only debate. Graham spent his time defending his 12 years in the Senate, saying his challengers are too conservative and would threaten Republicans’ chances to win back the Senate. With Tuesday’s primary nearing, Graham and his challengers mostly stuck to their campaign themes. Graham was attacked on policy and his willingness to at least listen to Democrats and President Obama, but no one made it personal. “If you didn’t support...

    COLUMBIA, SC — U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s six GOP challengers criticized the Seneca Republican on Saturday, saying he had failed to protect the Constitution during the Republican Primary campaign’s only debate. Graham, who is seeking a third term in the Senate, defended his record, including voting in favor of President Barack Obama’s two Supreme Court nominees and working to help illegal immigrants become citizens. The debate - the only of the GOP campaign - came 60 hours before polls open for Tuesday’s primary. The senator’s GOP opponents said change is needed in Washington. “If you truly are a conservative, then...

    Given that five violent Taliban terrorists in the Sgt.

Obama knows all about crying wolf and even includes it as one of the ploys from his own capacious political trick bag. With meek and mewling little voices, senators like South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham and House Speaker John Boehner, have been crying wolf about Obama all along. They never...

    Powerline’s Paul Mirengoff doesn’t think much of McCain supporter Lindsey Graham. Key graphs: Finally, if McCain and Graham had prevailed last summer, millions of illegal immigrants would now have path to citizenship. Our borders, however, would not be secure, and those who wish them to be made secure would have little more than the federal government’s promise to accomplish this — a promise in which McCain now admits the American people reasonably place little faith. UPDATE: For me, Jim DeMint is the model of what a South Carolina Senator (and indeed a Senator, period) should be. DeMint had this to...

But Tuesday opens the summer preseason of intraparty contests, which starts with an important primary in North Carolina. Between now and the end of June, more than two dozen states will hold primary elections. After a July break, the preseason will...

With a similar effort in the House stalled, the Senate might provide a new opportunity for immigration advocates. But some senators are warning that including the proposal could sink the annual defense bill, one of the few must-pass bills remaining in Congress.

    Having three non-Democrats running as Democrats in their Democratic primaries has put South Carolina’s county and state Democratic parties in need for near Demagoguery, it seems, in order to restore democracy. To explain it simpler, less alliterately, and in more detail: Karen Smith, a self-declared Tea Party sympathizer, is challenging Rep. Jim Clyburn in the June 10 Democratic primary. Phil Black challenged incumbent Republican Rep. Joe Wilson in the last two GOP primaries, but is doing it again as a Democrat in 2014.

He’s simply making an investment in the future of his increasingly outdated business model. No, our beef is with the politicians taking his cash – politicians like U.S. Sen.

    The numbers count of any likely GOP Senate majority in the new Congress suggests that real immigration reform is by no means a forgone conclusion. Indeed, it could be rather iffy. The ratio of Democrats to Republicans is important, as is control of the Senate. And the actual composition of the crucial Senate committees matters as well, and that certainly includes the Senate Judiciary that has primary (but shared) jurisdiction over immigration legislation. As it stands now, of the eight Republican members of the Judiciary Committee, two were original members of the 2013 "Gang of Eight."

Unfortunately, we believe the interview raises more questions than it answers regarding the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans. The American people and their representatives in Congress deserve to know the truth regarding what happened before, during, and after the terrorist attack. For that reason, we ask that you help clarify some of the questions raised by your interview.

    Hell-bent on arming opposition forces in Syria—despite strong evidence that they’re run by Islamic terrorists—John McCain displayed behavior unbecoming of a United States Senator during a recent meeting with Syrian Christian leaders touring Capitol Hill. The delegation of Syrian clergy came to Washington to raise awareness among lawmakers of the growing crisis among the region’s minority Christian community. Christians make up about 10% of the Syrian population and they are being targeted and ruthlessly murdered by radical elements of the rebel forces, according to the visiting church officials. They say the media and human rights groups in the west have...

    THE WORST REPUBLICAN SENATOR Lindsey Graham's sorry record. By Quin Hillyer – South Carolina's Lindsey Graham is a flop. He pretends to be a conservative, but sells out conservatives and insults them while doing so. He pretends to be effective at reaching across party lines, but the only thing he effectively does is help the other party. He inhabits the Senate seat of Strom Thurmond, legendary for great attention to his South Carolina constituents, but Graham spends most of his time trailing behind John McCain like a valet as McCain criss-crosses the country in pursuit of the presidency. He called...

    WASHINGTON — For more than a year House Republican leaders have insisted the chamber would act on new immigration laws. And for more than a year, Republicans have done virtually nothing on the issue — despite intense pressure from activists, business groups, and the nation’s changing demographics. And although there are a variety of reasons for inaction, one Republican lawmaker recently offered a frank acknowledgement that for many House Republicans, there’s one issue at play that’s not often discussed: race. “Part of it, I think — and I hate to say this, because these are my people — but I...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted President Obama for the foreign policy portion of his State of the Union address Tuesday night. “The world is literally about to blow up,” the South Carolina Republican told Roll Call. “The world as I know was not remotely described by the president.” “Syria is a contagion … Iraq is disintegrating. The whole region is moving toward chaos, and we’re doing nothing. We’re talking about limiting drones?” he continued. “I hope he will leave a residual force in Afghanistan [so] they can do the job, because if he doesn’t,

    'I Embrace Being a Chamber-of-Commerce Republican' Note: that would be the same US Chamber out to get us... I guess that back in the golden Reagan era -with as healthy, just, and bountiful an economy as the world's ever seen- a lot of us could have happily described ourselves as allied with the general interests of the US Chamber of Commerce.  Trouble is, we're here NOW -in the deepest, darkest days of the USSR-Lite Obama regime, not the 1980s- where the country's being rapidly raced into an abyss with the unconscionable aid of 'Republicans' like Sen Lindsay Graham, supported by -sadly- that very...

    As the battle between the grassroots and the establishment sides of the Republican Party rages on, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is taking a very public stance on the side of the establishment. “I’m going to embrace being a Chamber of Commerce Republican,” Graham said in an interview with The Greenville News in Greenville, SC this week. The Chamber of Commerce represents the biggest group fighting on behalf of the GOP establishment in its ongoing battle with the Tea Party movement, becoming deeply involved in Republican primary elections and pushing comprehensive immigration reform on Capitol Hill. “There’s a fight in our...
  • SC Pastor Mulls US Senate Bid

    A South Carolina pastor is mulling a 2014 Republican primary challenge to U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, sources familiar with his thinking tell FITS. DeTreville F. Bowers, Jr. – pastor of Christ Church of the Carolinas – has reportedly raised the prospect of running for Senate in conversations with several social conservative leaders. Some of these leaders have passed this information along to Graham’s campaign, which according to one staffer views Bowers as a “credible threat.” A native of Estill, S.C., Bowers spent two decades as a lawyer before earning his Master of Divinity degree from Columbia International University in the...
