    Two hours after Vester Flanagan, 41, shot and killed two journalists in Virginia on Wednesday morning, he faxed ABC News a manifesto. In the manifesto, Flanagan writes the Charleston church shooting, in which Dylann Roof killed nine African-American worshippers earlier this summer, "sent [him] over the top." He also said Jehovah told him to commit the shooting. Flanagan had previously attempted to pitch the news channel a story and had contacted them several weeks prior to the shooting.

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump will speak to the Upstate Chamber Coalition's Presidential Series on Thursday at noon. The event is sold out with about 1,400 people preregistered and about 100 media personnel expected. This will be Trump's first trip to the Upstate since announcing he will run for president. A recent Monmouth University poll shows Trump has 30 percent of South Carolina Republicans support. In second place, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 15 percent. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has 4 percent. Political analyst Chip Felkel said so far, Trump has been given a 'pass' by voters but will...

    GOP presidential candidate Gov. Mike Huckabee is doing quite well according to two national polls conducted after the first GOP presidential primary debate. One poll has Huckabee in second place behind GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and another poll has Huckabee listed with the highest favorability rating among 15 GOP presidential candidates; however, former neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson takes the highest net favorability rating when comparing the results in totality. A Reuters-Ipsos poll conducted August 21-25 has Huckabee in second behind Trump – the only two candidates with double digits in that poll: Donald Trump – 30.1 percent Mike Huckabee –...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has shifted his focus from censuring fellow Republican candidate Donald Trump to blasting the head of the Republican Party. The hawkish senator appeared on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to defend his plan to deploy U.S. ground-combat forces to Iraq and Syria if elected president and to discuss China's economic woes. But when the conversation shifted to Trump, the senior senator was quick to reject the GOP front-runner's plan to deport children born to illegal-immigrant parents and had some choice words for Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus who recently called Trump a "net...

At least two other states - Virginia and North Carolina - are contemplating similar moves as way of keeping the unpredictable billionaire in check.

Nancy Mace of Charleston – the first woman to graduate from The Citadel – will be Trump’s state coalitions director, the campaign announced in a news release. Mace ran for U.S. Senate last year and lost to U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham who was seeking re-election. James Epley will serve as Trump’s Upstate regional director. Epley was Newt Gingrich’s state Lowcountry regional director in 2012.

    A Navy enlisted man whose rape conviction was reversed six weeks ago remains imprisoned in South Carolina, caught amid the military’s accelerating campaign against sexual assault. Now, in an unusual move, attorneys for Airman Dustin M. Clark are urging the same military appeals court that threw out his 2014 conviction to order his immediate release. The 23-year-old Missouri native has already done too much time for a crime he didn’t commit, his attorneys say. “It’s outrageous,” David P. Sheldon, one of Clark’s attorneys, said in an interview. “They’re making sure he stays in jail.” It’s rare for a military appeals...

    I get that he needs to show a little bravado about a state that’s elected him to the Senate three times but this is a weird boast to make when you realize that South Carolina is Trump’s strongest state so far among the early big three. He leads by single digits in Iowa and appears to be opening a wide lead in New Hampshire although two polls taken there over the last month still have him south of 25 percent. In SC, though, it’s all clear sailing so far: Not only did he hit 30 percent in today’s Monmouth poll,...

Trump has repeatedly refused to rule out a third party candidacy, noting that he could use the threat of an independent bid as leverage, but he cannot appear on the South Carolina primary ballot unless he pledges to support the GOP nominee in the general election.

    The South Carolina Republican Party is joining the push to tie Donald Trump’s hands. The state party announced on Tuesday that for presidential candidates to qualify for the South Carolina primary, they must pledge to support the Republican presidential nominee — and not run as a third-party candidate — in the general election. The move comes as two other state parties, North Carolina and Virginia, ponder similar loyalty pledges. It’s an offensive that is implicitly aimed at Trump, who has repeatedly refused to rule out a third-party run. It comes amid mounting frustration in Republican establishment circles over Trump’s candidacy....

    It has come to this: The GOP, formerly the party of Lincoln and ostensibly the party of liberty and limited government, is being defined by clamors for a mass roundup and deportation of millions of human beings. To will an end is to will the means for the end, so the Republican clamors are also for the requisite expansion of government’s size and coercive powers. Most of Donald Trump’s normally loquacious rivals are swaggeringly eager to confront Vladimir Putin but are too invertebrate — Lindsey Graham is an honorable exception — to voice robust disgust with Trump and the spirit...

Instead, scientists must sift through an assortment of clues, from the chemical traces in fossilized bones to the scratch marks on prehistoric digging sticks. Scientists have long recognized that the diets of our ancestors went through a profound shift with the addition of meat.

The U.S. senator, an independent from Vermont, spoke for about an hour, delivering a fiery speech on why he thinks the United States has failed to deliver enough jobs, wages, education and healthcare to the middle and working classes, and to protect them under the law, based on their racial, sexual or income status.

    Drug-resistant head lice are very likely coming to a school near you, U.S. investigators warn. At least 25 states host lice populations that don't respond to common over-the-counter treatments, a new analysis reveals. Permethrin, part of the pyrethroid class of insecticides, has long been the go-to weapon against head lice, mosquitoes, bedbugs and other insects. But continued exposure to permethrin has caused a huge swath of the dreaded insects to develop genetic mutations that render such drugs useless. "It's a very classic resistance story. ...

Graham said that Donald Trump is embracing self-deportation that calls for all 11 million illegal immigrants to walk back to where they came from and “maybe we’ll let some of them come back.” “But I hope we don’t go down that road as a party,” Graham told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “So the leading contender Mr. Trump is going backward on immigration and I think he will take us all with him if...

    Earlier this week I referred to Hillary Clinton’s “tangle of corruption.” It turns out I was being generous. As the politically explosive story in the New York Times demonstrates, the depths of the Clintons’ corruption and avarice is stunning. The facts in the Times story are utterly damning and prima facie evidence of a conflict of interest. If foreign governments, including adversarial ones like Russia, paid the Clinton Foundation and/or Bill Clinton huge sums of money, they assured themselves favorable treatment. (Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that...

    The U.S. Department of Defense is sending a team to military installations in Kansas and South Carolina to investigate the possibility of relocating some Guantanamo Bay prisoners to U.S. soil, media outlets reported on Saturday. Fox News and CNN said the Pentagon on Friday notified the U.S. Congress that the team was already visiting the disciplinary barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and would then survey the naval brig at Charleston, South Carolina, in the coming weeks. Republicans, who control Congress, swiftly condemned the idea of moving detainees into the United States and close to major military posts, according to Fox...

    State investigators have refused to release dash cam videos from the shooting death of an unarmed, white teenager in South Carolina that is also being investigated by federal agents. --SNIP-- The video denial comes as the Hammond family's attorneys say a witness saw police pulling something from a patrol car trunk and placing it under the teen's body. The lawyers, in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey, also claim Seneca police officers desecrated Hammond's body by lifting his dead hand and slapping it with a high-five gesture, WCSC-TV reported Friday.

    The two “top secret" emails under review from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private server include discussion of an article about a U.S. drone operation, the Associated Press reported Friday. While the U.S. drone program has been widely reported on, the article references classified information and a Clinton adviser follows up "in a way that could possibly be inferred as confirmation," the AP said, citing intelligence officials. Officials offered the AP different accounts of the second email, saying it could improperly acknowledge classified information or merely show that different individuals separately got the same information. Clinton, now a Democratic...

    South Carolina Senator and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Grahaham criticized fellow candidates former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s and Donald Trump’s ISIS strategies, while arguing that Hillary Clinton would “kill” Trump in the general election on Friday’s “America’s Newsroom” on the Fox News Channel Graham also argued that if Donald Trump gets the nomination, Hillary Clinton would “kill him. 62% of the people say they would never vote for Donald Trump. He — his plan for ISIL, to me, is gibberish. No, I think what he’s saying about foreign policy makes no sense. I’ve learned a lot in the last...

Other candidates are at 1 percent or less: Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and George Pataki. Jim Gilmore and Lindsey Graham have no...

    The last batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department included one from Clinton asking to borrow a book called “Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do It Better,” by David Shipley and Will Schwalbe. Clinton has not said why she requested the book, but it includes some advice that is particularly interesting in light of the controversy over her unconventional email arrangement at the State Department and her decision to delete tens of thousands of emails she deemed to be purely personal. The copy that ABC downloaded for $9.99 had some interesting revelations. Take,...

    The political class is seriously underestimating the impact of Hillary Clinton’s email controversy. They see it mainly as a problem of public opinion and electoral politics, where it has been increasingly costly but not yet fatal. The political damage—the drip, drip, drip of revelations—has been bad, but there is worse to come. Hillary Clinton’s big problem now is legal, and it could well be insurmountable politically. Here’s why. Once a “political” issue finally moves into the legal system, as the Clinton email server has, it moves forward with an independent logic. That logic will slowly ensnare Secretary Clinton. You can...
