    A hard-left Democrat from Minnesota is facing backlash and accusations of homophobia after repeating baseless allegations pushed by MSNBC and liberal activists that Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is somehow being blackmailed into supporting President Trump. Rep. Ilhan Omar, a freshman lawmaker and close ally of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was condemned Tuesday after claiming Graham was “compromised.” Omar was responding to a video that suggested Graham pivoted from being a Trump critic to one of the president's biggest supporters in the Senate.

    Before Don got elected, Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump a racist, xenophobic bigot. Those are Lindsey Graham's words," Jolly said. "I doubt Lindsey Graham could tell you Donald Trump has had a change of heart in the last 24 months, I bet the change of heart has been with Lindsey Graham, not the president." "Or it could be that Donald Trump or somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham," Ruhle replied. "We’re gonna have to leave it there." Jon Cooper, chairman of the Democratic Coalition super PAC, explicitly accused Graham on Saturday of letting himself be blackmailed for "some...

    Short videos at link. You may have noticed that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has had a change of heart about President Trump. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Graham was one of Trump's loudest critics. He called him out as an "opportunist" and said he was "not fit" to be president. Slowly he arrived on more friendly terms with Trump, to the point where he was one of his strongest supporters last year. His new persona even earned him a new endearment from conservatives, "Lindsey Graham 2.0." MSNBC's Stephanie Rule, however, suggested on her show this week that there's something nefarious...

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday that he is concerned President Donald Trump's statements about Syria have emboldened ISIS and called on the President to rethink his decision to withdraw US troops from the country after the terror group claimed responsibility for a deadly explosion that killed US service members in the city of Manbij. Graham, who was a harsh critic of Trump's plans to bring home US troops from Syria when the decision was announced last month, interrupted the confirmation hearing for Attorney General nominee William Barr to weigh in on the attack. "My concern, by the statements made...

    President Trump should reopen the federal government for three weeks before declaring a national emergency, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham. "Before he pulls the plug on the legislative option, and I think we're almost there, I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time, like three weeks, before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal," the South Carolina Republican said during an interview with "Fox News Sunday." "If we can't at the end of three weeks, all bets are off, see if you can do it by himself through the...

    Only in politics can the very people who created a problem then be tasked with solving the problem. And they try to solve it with more of what caused it in the first place. DACA and similar amnesty magnets created the new wave of Central American migration since 2013. That wave single-handedly empowered the drug cartels, fueled the drug and gang crisis, and brought unimaginable fiscal and security liabilities in our communities, not to mention a humanitarian crisis for the migrants themselves. Now, Jared Kushner is working with Lindsey Graham to promote a deal of some border wall funding in...
  • White House prepares to REPLACE ailing Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    She's the subject of a Hollywood biopic and is very much alive, but the White House has been in contact with Senate Republicans about possible replacements for the ailing 85-year old Supreme Court justice. The White House is even working on a short-list of possible nominees to replace Ginsburg, who broke her 25-year streak when she began missing oral arguments on Monday. The White House counsel's office is even trading names with the office of new Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham. Politico published a list of them Thursday. The short list of potential replacements for the ailing Ginsburg include...

    Breitbart ^ | January 10,2019 | Neil Munro
    Six GOP Senators briefed Jared Kushner and President Donald Trump’s top congressional aide about a plan to swap two amnesties in exchange for border-wall funding. The six GOP Senators included Graham, North Carolina’s Thom Tillis, Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, Ohio’s Rob Portman, Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, and Maine’s Susan Collins. The Senators’ draft offer to the Democrats, however, also includes incentives sought by GOP-aligned business groups, such as an expansion of the H-2B blue collar visa-worker program. Few Democrats support the H-2B visa program but its inclusion could encourage GOP legislators to ignore protests from the GOP’s pro-American base. Several GOP Senators...

    South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a statement Thursday calling for President Donald Trump to invoke national emergency powers to fund his border wall. "Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi's refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier -- even if the government were to be reopened -- virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier," Graham said in a statement. "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier."

    Incoming Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) met with Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, Bill Barr on Wednesday as the Committee prepares for the confirmation hearings scheduled for next week. Graham said Bill Barr has a high opinion of outgoing DAG Rod Rosenstein and King Robert Mueller, both criminals who have been trying to remove President Trump from office. Reporters asked Senator Graham if he was going to investigate FISA abuses which involve Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. “Will you investigate surveillance abuse allegations, including those involving the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein?” a reporter asked Lindsey Graham. “Yeah, I...

The question answers itself. “He’s not going to sign a bill that doesn’t have money for the wall. I can tell you exactly how this is going to end.

    There’s no hack cliché like the New Year’s prediction column cliché, so with that in mind, here’s my Top 10 Predictions for 2019 column, and my general prediction is that 2019 will be even crazier than 2018!10.     Out of Afghanistan Too: Yeah, our 17-year war will largely end as we bring most of the boys back home. As always, Trump will make his opponents go nuts. What will be a big part of the fun is watching the liberal media that slobbered over Obama’s tragic, premature Iraq pullout posing as hawks over this long-overdue strategic rethink. What you...

    When Donald Trump announced that his first trip abroad as president would take him to Saudi Arabia and to Israel, it was a signal that the new administration had returned America’s traditional alliances in the Middle East to their privileged status. For the prior eight years, the Obama White House had, in contrast, prioritized relations with these countries’ regional adversary in Iran and embraced the Islamic Republic’s regional allies, Turkey and Qatar, as key interlocutors and partners. The Obama administration also supported Islamist movements in the Middle East, principally the Muslim Brotherhood, that threated to topple regimes and instigate more...
