    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says congressional lawmakers are discussing taking some action in response to the Koran burnings of a Tennessee pastor that led to killings at the U.N. facility in Afghanistan and sparked protests across the Middle East, Politico reports.Sen. Lindsey Graham said Congress might need to explore the need to limit some forms of freedom of speech, in light of Tennessee pastor Terry Jones’ Quran burning, and how such actions result in enabling U.S. enemies.

    John McCain, Joseph Lieberman, and Lindsey Graham are the Senate’s most energetic proponents of sinking the nation ever deeper into the Libyan morass. In a joint interview on Fox last weekend, Senators McCain (R., Ariz.) and Lieberman (I., Conn.) were breathless in their rendering of the “freedom fighters” and the “Arab Spring” of spontaneous “democracy.” Friday they upped the ante with a Wall Street Journal op-ed, rehearsing yet again what an incorrigible thug Qaddafi is and how “we cannot allow [him] to consolidate his grip” on parts of Libya that he still controls. For his part, Senator Graham (R., S.C.)...

    Sen. Graham Wants Intel Chief Gone After He Claims Russia, China Pose 'Mortal' Threat Published March 10, 2011 | A prominent Republican senator called on Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to resign Thursday after he said Russia and China pose the biggest "mortal threat" to the United States, stunning lawmakers on the Senate Armed Services Committee. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said it's time for Clapper to go after his testimony on Capitol Hill, but the White House said it has the "full faith and confidence" of the director. Clapper, who just last month startled lawmakers when he claimed...
  • Nikki Haley & Lindsey Graham, Teaming Up Against Obamacare

    National Review ^ | 2/14/11 | Jim Geraghty.
    One of the favorites of South Carolina conservatives, Gov. Nikki Haley, and one of their least favorites, Sen. Lindsey Graham, are teaming up to promote legislation that would permit states such as the Palmetto State to “opt out” of Obamacare. Graham mentions the value in putting every senator on record as to whether or not their state should have the option of opting out of Obamacare. In South Carolina Republican circles, there’s still a lot of talk about a conservative challenge to Sen. Lindsey Graham, but it’s worth noting he’s not up for reelection until 2014.

    Lindsey Graham represents one of the most conservative states in the country. The South Carolina Republican has been known for his moderate views and his partnership with Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman on various issues, including national defense. Now it appears that the Senator may be in trouble in 2014. This comes as Republican Congressman Joe Wilson gains more prominence. Wilson famously shouted "You lie" during President Obama's speech to joint chamber of Congress. Public Policy Polling decided to run a hypothetical poll to see how Graham would fare against Wilson. Graham has been a top target for the...

    President Obama garnered praise from across the political spectrum for his moving speech last week at the memorial service for the Tucson shooting victims, including from his usual critics on the right, but the Rev. Franklin Graham can't be counted among them. In a speech on Tuesday at John Brown University, a private Christian college in Siloam Springs, Ark., the son of the revered evangelist Billy Graham voiced "dismay" at the way the Tucson memorial service was conducted, arguing that it was not as explicitly religious -- apparently meaning "Christian" -- as those following the Oklahoma City bombing and the...
  • Rev. Franklin Graham denounces “outrageous” accusations hurled at Palin by the left and media

    The smear job against Governor Sarah Palin is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Reverend Franklin Graham, one of the voices of reason in this whole situation, calls out the decrepit media for utilizing the tragedy of the shootings, to attack a political opponent. There is no need to place blame whatsoever on political opinions nor politicians for a madman’s murder of innocent human beings. Graham said: “I have been shocked at the reports from those suggesting that former Governor Sarah Palin has some level of responsibility for the horrific shooting. She was extremely helpful to Samaritan’s Purse in...

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has found another disguise for lining the pockets of “alternative energy” producers with consumers’ dollars directed there not by rational economic choices but by government mandate. Once a supporter of cap and trade, Graham now supports a “Clean Energy Standard” that would require utilities to generate increasingly high percentages of electricity from “renewable” sources like wind, solar, and biofuels, from nuclear, and from coal using “carbon capture and sequestration”—catching the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted when coal burns and forcing it, under pressure, into deep geological formations for long-term storage to keep it out of the atmosphere....

    2011 could bring some quick indications on whether this year's collapse of energy and climate legislation in the Senate created lasting wounds.

 Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) chatted Wednesday about reviving their partnership on energy, Lieberman told E2. “It is one of the things we want to work on together next year, start again,” Lieberman said Wednesday in the Capitol. His comments come as President Obama in the new year will seek talks with Republicans on energy. Lieberman said areas on the table include a “clean-energy standard” for utilities, which Graham is already pushing, and efforts to...

    There has been a lot of speculation this week about why the GOP rolled over in the Senate on virtually every issue. From Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’s repeal to START to you name it — the GOP became the party of capitulation. So much so that even Lindsey Graham is blasting the Senate GOP “for a ‘capitulation … of dramatic proportions’ to Democrats and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in the lame-duck Congress.” In his statement about why the GOP folded like a cheap suit, Graham gives away the game. He says, “I can understand the Democrats being afraid...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) lashed out at fellow Republicans Tuesday for a "capitulation ... of dramatic proportions" to Democrats and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in the lame-duck Congress. Graham said Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for allowing ratification of the New START Treaty and other legislation in the period before new lawmakers are sworn in in January. "When it's all going to be said and done, Harry Reid has eaten our lunch," Graham said on Fox News radio. "This has been a capitulation in two weeks of dramatic proportions of policies that wouldn't have passed...

    First, the White House spoke out against NBC News and its editing of Richard Engel's interview with President George Bush. And, today, the White House takes on the New York Times editorial page for its editorial, "Mr. Bush and the GI Bill." From the White House statement: Once again, the New York Times Editorial Board doesn't let the facts get in the way of expressing its vitriolic opinions - no matter how misleading they may be. In today's editorial, "Mr. Bush and the GI Bill", the New York Times irresponsibly distorts President Bush's strong commitment to strengthening and expanding support...

    George W. Bush's book is atop the bestseller list, which could help explain the presence of hundreds of people who waited in line Monday at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, N.C., to have a book signed by the former president and former first lady Laura Bush. The event sold out in a matter of hours Saturday. Library officials would not say how many people obtained the wristbands necessary for admission. According to USA Today, in the week ending Dec. 12, Bush's book, "Decision Points," which was released a week after the midterm election reached No. 1 on the nonfiction...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) does not see a political lift for President Obama in the imminent repeal of the Clinton-era policy banning gays from serving openly in the military. “I think the people who are supportive of 'Don’t ask, don’t tell’ were probably supportive of the president to begin with,” he told reporters in the Capitol. “Most Americans, I think, hope it works out. I certainly do. I think it is going to be problematic and whatever problems it has, [Obama] owns,” Graham added.

    Sarah Palin’s visit to the earthquake-ravaged Haiti showed she is not “afraid to get her hands dirty,” says the Rev. Franklin Graham.

Samaritan’s Purse teams have been working in Haiti since the country was devastated by a deadly earthquake in January. Still struggling to recover from the quake, the Haitian people have more recently suffered from the growing cholera epidemic that has already...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) walked away from climate change and energy talks with Democrats months ago, but he’s plotting a return to the thick of Senate energy debates. Graham said Thursday that he’s reviving his proposal to create a “clean energy” standard for utilities in the next Congress. The idea would require power companies to supply escalating amounts of energy from various low-carbon sources. Power generated from new nuclear plants would be eligible. Graham told reporters that he wants to link the idea with proposals that would prevent EPA from “overly” regulating several air pollutants — including carbon. “I am...

Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, gave a blunt analysis Sunday about the possibility of extending tax cuts to Americans and about the fate of "don't ask, don't tell" and other legislation in the lame-duck congressional session that resumes Monday. Mr. Graham said Congress has "enough bipartisan support" to extend the so-called Bush-era tax cuts, despite the refusal by Democrats to extend them to all Americans. He also said senators who support a repeal of the "don't...
