    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is urging South Carolinians to vote against him when they disagree with his support for a national amnesty plus a greater inflow of foreign workers to take Americans’ jobs. “To the people who object to this, I don’t want you to vote for me because I cannot serve you well,” he said in a Capitol Hill press conference July 20. He continued: The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the [2 million younger illegals] ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend [President]...

    RINO Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told voters on Thursday that if they do not support amnesty for illegal children then he does not want their vote. He made the remarks during his press conference with far left Illinois Senator Dick Durbin. Its an attitude like this that may explain Graham’s lack of success in the 2016 presidential primary election. PJ Media reported: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) urged President Trump to support a revived DREAM Act and said at the “snap of his fingers” Trump could convince the Republican Party to unite behind providing a pathway to citizenship for all undocumented...

He clearly was a hurting guy," Graham told CNN. "I think they relieved the pressure, and he sounded like the old John McCain, dying to get back and talking about driving across the country. I said, 'No.' "

    RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) — The atmosphere was tense inside a Richland County courtroom on Sunday when a man accused of leading Richland County deputies on a dramatic car chase had his first appearance before a judge.

    Have any Freepers ever looked into the side effects of second hand smoke on the children of smokers?? I wanted to ask ya'll this because of a conversation I had earlier this morning.

The lady asked me if I had ever looked into the effects second hand smoke had on kids in the home...

    Just as summer is ramping up, Myrtle Beach, a top South Carolina summer destination, is dealing with a flurry of violence that has city and state officials scrambling to calm worried visitors and residents. In the city's most prominent incident, at least seven people were injured in a June 18 shooting that was live-streamed on Facebook. That shooting -- and two others that weekend -- followed six over the Easter holidays in April. The violence prompted South Carolina's Republican Gov. Henry McMaster to visit the city not long after and order steps to beef up security, such as bringing in...

    The theory: a cargo ship with a "dirty bomb" was just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. The notion came to life during a live YouTube broadcast Wednesday evening. During the broadcast, conspiracy theorist George Webb initially claimed a "source" had told him that there was "a dirty bomb planned for a major city." Based on the information from the "source," Webb said he believed Memphis might be the target. The Coast Guard said in a further statement provided to CNN that the source of the threat had been detained by authorities for further questioning. The statement did not mention Webb's...

    One of the many holes in the “social contract” theory of government is that the power of the state is so often harnessed by interest groups to protect themselves against competition. Nobody ever agreed to that, but it happens all the time, inflicting losses on the consuming public. A recent instance of this is the aggressive lobbying campaign being waged by the American Optometric Association (AOA) against innovations that now make it possible for Americans to get accurate eye exams and lens prescriptions over the Internet. By using such innovations, millions of Americans who need vision correction could save substantial...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham says U.S. intelligence agencies tell him that a conversation he had with a foreign individual was picked up in surveillance and that an unknown U.S. official or officials asked to know his identity as a party in the conversation. Graham says he doesn't know if intelligence agencies actually revealed his name. But he's sent a letter to the FBI, CIA and the National Security Agency seeking information on any incidental collection of his communications with foreign targets. Graham says he wants to know if Obama administration officials sought the unmasking of Americans in foreign intelligence reports for...
