    COLUMBIA Statehouse lawmakers will be in session less time in 2017 and Georgia gun permit holders can now carry their weapons in South Carolina after Gov. Nikki Haley on Friday signed dozens of bills passed by the General Assembly into law. After about 20 years on the table, lawmakers this year voted to shorten the legislative session by three or four weeks, depending on how the calendar falls. Legislators will head home on the second Thursday in May, instead of the first Thursday in June, beginning next year. In 2018 and some other years ahead, the session would be...
  • South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Warns Donald Trump: I Know What That Rhetoric Can Do

    06/03/2016 8:59:57 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 68 replies
    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump should use a more civil tone while campaigning, warning that divisive rhetoric could ultimately lead to violence on par with the 2015 Charleston church massacre. I know what that rhetoric can do, the Republican governor told The Associated Press on Thursday. I saw it happen. Haley spoke to the news agency just weeks before the first anniversary of the June 17, 2015 killing spree in which a white man murdered nine black churchgoers, reportedly because he wanted to ignite a race war. In the new interview with AP, Haley...

    Nikki Haleys response to Dylann Roof shooting up a church in the state that she governs and killing nine people hasnt always been perfect. In fact, its been cringeworthy at times, but she deserves credit from supporters for eventually removing the Confederate flag from state grounds and denouncing its use altogether. She has a history of coming around on issues and then really hitting them hard. For evidence of that, look no further than her fearless takedown of Donald Trump during her response to President Barack Obamas State of the Union address this year. Now, she is joining Hillary Clinton...

    COLUMBIA Gov. Nikki Haley, one of the most popular figures in the Republican Party, hasnt decided if she will attend the Republican National Convention in July. Haley said Monday shes waiting until South Carolinas 2016 legislative session ends four weeks from now before she decides whether shell take part July 18 to 21 in Cleveland. Weve got time, Haley said. Thats not until July. If she skips the convention, Haley would be joining a growing list of Republican leaders who are opting out of attending accentuating the deepening divide within the GOP as New York billionaire Donald Trump...

    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said Wednesday that she is backing Ted Cruz's run for the Republican presidential nomination though not formally endorsing the Texas senator now that Marco Rubio has quit the race. "My hope and my prayer is that Sen. Cruz can come through so that he can push through and really get to where he needs to go," Haley told reporters in Columbia, The State reports. "Because we do want a strong leader. "We do want somebody that's conservative," she added. "We do want somebody that's action-minded." When asked specifically whether she endorsed Cruz, Haley...

    One of the puzzlers of the South Carolina primary is why Marco Rubio lost. He had the two major endorsements: Senator Tim Scott and Governor Nikki Haley. How could he lose? Haley has a 71% approval rate among Republicans. We learned the answer this weekend. Nikki Haley spoke to the Gridiron Club. Yep. She is that establishment. Not only did she deliver the response to the State of the Union speech that blasted the Republican front-runner instead of the Democratic president, but now she is in Washington dancing to the Washington Establishment's tune. And that tine is Never Trump. From...

    During Saturday’s Republican presidential debate in Greenville, South Carolina, when Nikki Haley’s endorsement was still up for grabs, it was clear that at least two candidates wanted it. “Nikki Haley will do a better job curing poverty than Barack Obama,” said Marco Rubio. Later, Jeb Bush took a swipe at rival John Kasich, citing a think tank report that graded governors on spending. Kasich got a bad grade. Haley was among the best. Haley was there, watching in person, but she didn’t speak to reporters. As the six Republican presidential hopefuls stomped and shouted across the state she governs, Haley...

    In May, the History Channel will air its remake of Alex Haley's Roots: The Saga of An American Family. Unsurprisingly, the advertising for the broadcast fails to mention that Roots is a fake, and a fake of the first order. First of all, the book upon which the successful mini-series was based was actually authored by Murray Fisher, Alex Haley's editor from Playboy magazine. Secondly, Roots wasn't just ghost-written: it was plagiarized: In 1978, Judge Robert Ward concluded that Haley had stolen the idea for Roots from Harry Courlander, the white man who authored The African. Courlander charged Haley with...

    South Carolina has been at the forefront of the battle against President Obama’s refugee resettlement plans for nearly a year, with grassroots activists fighting not only the White House but their own Republican Gov. Nikki Haley. Since that time, it has become apparent to South Carolina conservatives, including many who voted for Haley, that she is a supporter of Obama’s drive to convert millions of recent immigrants into “new Americans” by the time he leaves office, using not only the United Nations refugee pipeline but also a steady influx of illegal immigrants from Central America. Haley has supported the president’s...

    CHAPIN, S.C. — Senator Marco Rubio received the endorsement Wednesday of South Carolina’s governor, Nikki R. Haley, a stamp of approval that could prove significant as his campaign tries to break out ahead in the state’s primary on Saturday. Mrs. Haley endorsed Mr. Rubio at an early evening rally in Chapin, S.C., saying, “If we elect Marco Rubio, every day will be a great day in America.” The endorsement puts the backing of one of the Republican Party’s rising stars behind Mr. Rubio, who has cultivated relationships with many of his party’s youngest leaders. Mr. Rubio’s campaign is oriented around...

    It has been almost a week since Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina suggested in a State of the Union response that her fellow Republicans dial down their anger. For Tea Party activists in her state, the advice has served only to frustrate them further. At the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention that concluded on Monday, conservatives were excited to hear from Republican presidential candidates such as Donald. J. Trump, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Huckabee. But mention of Ms. Haley had a tendency to sour moods.

    In what may be one of the most bizarre political moments to spring out of Nikki Haleys widely-criticized State of the Union response, Haley declared that donor-class presidential favorite Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) "believes in amnesty," before she flipped 180 degrees to adopt the Rubio campaign talking point that he is "not for amnesty." Haley- who informed reporters that she is in personal contact and even texts Sen. Rubio- said that the Republican presidential hopeful was "supportive" of her speech condemning GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and "appreciated" what she was doing.

    In the lone piece of good news from last night, we have endured the last State of the Union speech from our current president. However, when South Carolina governor Nikki Haley delivered the Republican response, she inadvertently demonstrated the fundamental problem with today's Republican party. It is completely out of touch with its own base and the majority of ordinary Americans, and doesn't even realize it. Gov. Haley by all accounts is a very pleasant individual and a woman of character and faith. I'm sure she has genuinely conservative convictions. But you would have to look pretty hard to find...

Basically, she said anyone protesting the current bipartisan debacle in Washington, D.C. was one step removed from a white supremacist mass murderer. Of course the "Republican" establishment was enamored by Haley's speech - giving it rave reviews and calling her "very, very presidential." Of course while ideologues like us were assessing the politics of the governor's remarks, the rest of the country was looking at something else entirely ... Haley's teeth....

Haley took clear aim at the GOP front-runner, discussing her family's immigrant experience while warning against rhetoric that would threaten "the dream that is America." "During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices," Haley said from the governor's residence in Columbia. "We must resist that temptation.

    Americans should resist "the siren call of the angriest voices" in how the nation treats immigrants, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said Tuesday as the GOP used its response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address to try softening the tough stance embraced by some of its leading presidential candidates. The U.S.-born daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley said the country is facing its most dangerous security threat since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. That was a reference to the Islamic State group, which has taken credit for attacks in Paris and elsewhere and may have inspired...

Rabid McDaniel voters seized on the news, sending a tingle down their legs. Some attempted to make the leap that somehow it showed that Childers is more conservative than Thad Cochran, the Republican nominee, as if this one bit of news alone gave them the reason they needed to crossover.

Now many of those voters say they might take their frustration out on the governor's race. "I would be hardpressed voting Republican at this time," said Linne Godfrey. "Maybe I will, maybe I won't," said Reva Daniel. "Right now it would be difficult."

    SOMETHING curious is happening on the right of American politics: immigration is losing its potency as a driver of voter anger. Just ask Chris McDaniel, a Mississippi Republican who represents the Tea Partys last, best hope of toppling an establishment grandee in 2014. Mr McDaniel hopes that grassroots Republicans will ditch Senator Thad Cochran, a four-decade Washington veteran, and instead choose him as the partys Senate candidate for mid-term elections in November. [snip] The elder Barbour offered a parable to explain local views about violators of the border. Imagine cooking burgers in a backyard when an intruder crawled under the...

    Thad Cochran is getting his butt kicked in Mississippi by conservative challenger Chris McDaniel. That has sent the NRSC and its friends into a tailspin and they are desperate to tar and feather Chris McDaniel. Some freak in Mississippi has handed them their latest tool. By willfully ignoring the real timeline and facts, the NRSC wishes to drag Chris McDaniel into scandal and, they no doubt hope, down in the polls. It is an open secret in Mississippi that Thad Cochrans wife is in a nursing home. I have known it for some time, which is why RedState has not...

  • Sheldon Adelson: Not Getting His Moneys Worth In South Carolina

    Hes the Las Vegas casino magnate pouring money into the coffers of Republican politicians (and the groups supporting their reelection) in an effort to purchase their opposition to online poker. Why does Adelson want to ban online poker? Easy: Its costing him money. Weve got no beef with Adelson, obviously. Hes 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. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.). Last month we wrote about Grahams support for a federal online poker ban which were sure has...

    Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina signed S.308 into law today, February 11th. The reform restores the rights of armed Americans to eat in the same restaurants as the rest of the population. South Carolina is one of the last states to restore this right. Depending on definitions, between one and four states still restrict people who are exercising their second amendment rights from obtaining service in places that serve alcohol. North Dakota law allows legally armed people into portions of establishments that serve alcohol, for example. Louisiana may be the last state to have a complete prohibition....

    COLUMBIA, S.C. South Carolina Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, imploring party activists Friday night to defeat this states Indian-American governor, predicted next years Democratic standard-bearer would send Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from. Haley was raised in South Carolina and attended college here, but her parents were Sikh immigrants. Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the partys Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage. Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: Lexington County. Before being elected governor...

    Our founding fathers were very careful to stipulate in our Constitution, and in crystal clear language, that our Constitution, and only those laws which shall be made in pursuance thereof, shall be the supreme law of the land. All those who assert Obamacare is the law of the land, need to explain why the following stated reasons are insufficient to establish that Obamacare has not been made in pursuance of our Constitution. And they need to explain why Obamacare is in harmony with the documented intentions and beliefs under which our Constitution was adopted. Keep in mind our very own...
