  • Lindsey Graham’s World

    06/07/2013 10:43:19 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 10 replies ^ | 6/7/13 | Nancy Mace
    The Constitution. The Bill of Rights. The Declaration of Independence. To some these are little more than historical documents, but to conservatives these are the law of the land. It is clear as one reads them, the foundation of our country was built with limited government and the free market in mind. However, Washington is out of touch. Special interests throw money at career politicians. These same politicians fail to lead and simply react to the latest controversy to gain a spot on Sunday morning talk shows. With congressional approval at an all time low, it’s easy to understand why...

    I take some very serious issues with Lindsey Graham. I’ll admit, to an extent, it seems a little personal. After all, Graham and John McCain ridiculed Rand Paul’s filibuster over whether or not the President believed he had the authority to kill American citizens. However, the latest evidence of his cluelessness – to say nothing of his inability to understand a basic concept like “liberty” – may well elevate him to the lofty position of Obama of the GOP. You see, recently I bid a fond farewell to the First Amendment under the Obama administration in a piece here at...

    Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Rand Paul had strong words for the National Security Agency. “Get a warrant, go after a terrorist or a murderer or a rapist,” he said. “But don’t troll through a billion phone records every day.” The Kentucky senator went on to threaten a class-action lawsuit against such trolling. His remarks capped a week of bipartisan outrage over revelations that the federal government’s global surveillance program was much broader in scope than anticipated. While Verizon was the first carrier implicated, there are now reports that the NSA has clandestine access to real-time user data for customers...
  • Lindsey Graham: 'If censoring mail helped, I would back it'

    Well, it's good to know where his head is at: From Yahoo News: "Sen. Lindsey Graham would propose censoring Americans' 'snail' mail if he thought it would help protect national security, the South Carolina Republican said Tuesday. But for now, he says he doesn't think it's necessary." The direct quote is: "If I thought censoring the mail was necessary, I would suggest it, but I don't think it is." Graham went on to liken it to World War II, when international mail was subject to inspection and censorship. "When you wrote a letter overseas, it got censored. When a letter...

    I suspect that Ted Cruz is correct. The “fix” is in on the Senate immigration bill. It will pass. And no one will more to blame than Lindsey Graham. And for that one fact, (though by no means am I ignoring a whole litany of other offenses) Graham must be primaried, and defeated next year. For unlike the other GOP members of the “gang of 8,” as well as those GOP senators inclined to support the bill, Graham is up for election in 2014. His stance on immigration is anathema to the overwhelming majority of the Republican party, if not...

    About 20 people protested outside of Senator Lindsey Graham's Florence office at the Federal Building on West Evans Street on Monday. Members of the Florence and Myrtle Beach Tea Parties took part in the demonstration to voice their opposition to Graham voting yes for immigration reform. "We hope that we will be able in this next election to get enough grass roots support that we can primary Lindsey and send Lindsey back home and let him do what he wants. Or move out to Arizona with John McCain. He fits in quite well with him," said Janet Spencer, Myrtle Beach...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is running a scam on the citizens of America. The immigration bill does not provide for border security first. He and Sen Marco Rubio, R-Fla., were out front saying they would secure the border first. Illegals will have to learn English, pay fines, etc.Now, they were all caught in a lie. Graham now says we must provide legalization first. We have heard the TV and radio ads saying border security must come first. This is a scam.The New York Times says the immigration bill was written by Sen. Charles Schumer’s staff. No mention of Graham. South...

    A brand-new Georgia billboard proclaiming South Carolina’s alleged affinity for illegal aliens is raising eyebrows this week. The sign, posted in Canton, Ga., declares: “South Carolina welcomes the undocumented. Sen. Lindsey Graham says his state has a labor shortage and wants more immigrants. For job tips, call his office at (864) 646-4090. Located in Pendleton, S.C. Only 2 hours from Atlanta!” Sen. Graham, R-S.C., sits on a bipartisan committee that just passed a sweeping immigration-reform bill. “These people must have been off the planet for the last five years,” said D.A. King, an immigration activist with the Dustin Inman Society...

    Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has said that the United States should consider a boycott of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia if Moscow decides to grant asylum to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Sen. Graham told The Hill Tuesday that the Russians' recent actions involving Snowden were “outrageous” and agreed that a boycott should be a possibility when asked. “I would. I would just send the Russians the most unequivocal signal I could send them,” Graham said. “We certainly haven't reset our relationship with Russia in a positive way. At the end of the day, if they grant this guy...

    Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham have rounded up another bipartisan gang, this time to pass a media shield law that would enact recent Justice Department guidelines. The New York and South Carolina senators have written a new shield bill that protects the media from revealing information and sources during news gathering and requires courts to “apply a balancing test before compelling disclosure” from journalists. The bill would also require reporters’ be notified within 90 days of their records being reviewed by Justice and require the courts to arbitrate Justice’s media records requests.

Carolina Conservatives United is a non-profit political organization based in South Carolina whose mission is to support political candidates who support conservative values and oppose those who do not. “As residents of South Carolina and grassroots activists in the conservative movement, we are concerned not only about Lindsey Graham’s voting record on important issues but also the contempt he regularly displays toward small-government conservative citizens,” said Bruce Carroll, Chairman of...

    Bipartisan immigration bill faces bipartisan fight POSTED: 1:29 p.m. EDT, May 18, 2007 Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said the bill started out being about how to deal with illegal immigration "and wound up being about what it means to be an American. ... I think we've got a deal that reflects who we are as Americans." He added, "From the Ph.D. to the landscaper, there's a chance for you to participate in the American dream on our terms in a way that makes this country better." Graham predicted the bill would find "overwhelming" support among lawmakers.

    The bipartisan Senate "Gang of Eight" Thursday will likely present an agreement that would see increased border security provisions in the immigration bill. The agreement was made to secure 70 votes needed to pass the controversial immigration reform bill, ABC News reported. A source in Washington told ABC the agreement includes a huge increase in border personnel and an increase in fencing. The "Gang of Eight" includes Republicans Marco Rubio of Florida, John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Democrats Chuck Schumer of New York, Bob Menendez of New Jersey, Michael Bennet of Colorado...

    Daniel, re Lindsey Graham’s suggestion that everyone should just “shut up” about the Libyan Non-War, you’ll recall that the last time the Senator attracted any attention in these parts he was also telling everyone to shut up – this time about Islam. Maybe it would be easier if he just issued the rest of us with an approved list of conversational topics. Alternatively, here’s a suggestion for Senator Graham: Why don’t you shut up? Not permanently, but just long enough to: a) reflect whether this apparently reflexive response of yours is really appropriate for a citizen-legislator in a self-governing republic;...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Remember Senator Graham, Lindsey Graham? I forget the exact words. We played the sound bite yesterday.  But he basically said -- correct me if I'm wrong, but he essentially said -- that we have to do this because Hispanics hate us and we've gotta show them that we don't hate them.  It's a paraphrase, but his motivation was that. It was on one of the Sunday shows.  His declared motivation for this was the fact that Hispanics hate us. They think we're racists and bigots who don't like them. We hate them, don't want them here. They don't...
