    Right now, the fate of the country lies in the hands of "classic" or "throwback" Republicans. The Grand Old Party currently controls all three branches of government, but its "big tent" happens to include a lunatic fringe of "low information voters" and bigots that delivered the presidency to Donald Trump. It's now up to the sane Republicans to try and wrestle power away from this subset, before the drive the entire country, and perhaps the world over the cliff. You already know how low Trump's approval numbers are, and you have heard him ripped to shreds already by the left,...

    Lindsey Graham just proved how out of touch he is with the Republican Party. The so-called ‘Republican’ just challenged the voters to vote him out if they are against illegal immigration. “To the people who object to this, I don’t want you to vote for me because I cannot serve you well,” said Graham during a press conference. “The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend Ronald Reagan was not able to do, we’re going to actually secure the border,...

The identities of U.S. citizens inadvertently caught up in foreign spying are typically “masked” from officials to protect their privacy rights. “It’s important to us to get the facts right,” Graham said. “Did the name come in masked or unmasked?...
