    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., alleged Sunday that there is a “bureaucratic coup” being uncovered following reporting last week that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed trying to oust President Trump. The New York Times reported Friday that Rosenstein considered rallying Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution and offered to wear a wire to record his conversations with the president. Rosenstein has denied he considered such actions and follow-up reports have indicated that he was being sarcastic when bringing up the secret recording. Graham told “Fox News Sunday” that Trump should not fire the top Justice Department...

    Nikki Haley, President Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, said Thursday that The New York Times knew she had not been involved in the purchase of expensive curtains for her New York residence when it printed a story implying she did. "They knew the facts and they released the story anyway," Haley told Fox News' "The Story." "I hadn't even taken the job when these curtains were picked out," she said. "We told the reporters that these were the facts." The Times issued an editor's note at the top of its piece, which was originally titled "Nikki Haley's View of...

    Hundreds of residents have been left trapped, thousands have been left without power and five people have been killed as Hurricane Florence battered the south-east coast of America. Blowing ashore with howling 90 mph winds, Hurricane Florence splintered buildings, trapped hundreds of people and swamped entire communities along the Carolina coast. Roads became flooded, trees blown over and homes destroyed as some parts of North Carolina have already seen surges of flood water as high as 10ft. As Florence first broke on land yesterday 90mph winds struck the coastal areas, but as the storm system moved across land it was...

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has "no idea" who the mysterious New York Times op-ed author is, but she knows what will become of him or her. The author, reportedly a "senior official" in the Trump administration, will be outed, Conway predicted on "Fox & Friends" Monday morning. “Cowards are like criminals – they eventually suss out themselves because they eventually confess or brag to the wrong person, and I suspect that’s what will happen here.” -@KellyannePolls on anonymous NYT op-ed writer pic.twitter.com/FRiFqKmH4w— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) September 10, 2018 The author, who she calls "unimpressive," wanted to be a...

    South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley may be in trouble with the IRS.

    Grasping: South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham gave an interesting take on the “anonymous” op-ed published by a “senior Trump administration official” in The New York Times last week, in which the writer repeated earlier claims from others that the White House is in chaos and the president is unhinged. Appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer, Graham said he believes the op-ed is the latest sign of panic from a Deep State that their alleged savior, special counsel Robert Mueller has zip, zero, nada when it comes to his original mandate of finding illicit, nefarious “Russian collusion” with the 2016...

    The “Resistance” has morphed into the “Lynch Mob.” Having successfully been gaslit into believing Donald Trump is everything from a bad joke to a Russian spy, the Progressive left in the U.S. are embracing all the totalitarian impulses their grabby little hands can find as they climb the Cliffs of their Insanity to remove him from office. This putsch is orchestrated by a now open conspiracy of members of FBI, CIA, MI-6, DNC, the U.S. corporate media and Trump’s own staff in the Oval Office as evidenced by the recent and infamous New York Times op-ed. This expose from a...

    I love Lindsay Graham. The witty South Carolina senator, who's usually more entertaining than most comedians, has been one of the highlights of the otherwise depressing televised Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Graham put it perfectly Thursday morning. He said some people had been coming up to him and asking if this week's ugly display of disruptions, rude moronic outbursts from the gallery and Democrat grandstanding had become a circus. "I'm here to defend circuses," Graham said, pointing out that it was safe for parents to take their kids to the circus but not to...

    Democratic senators put on quite a show Thursday at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. Desperate for a "gotcha" moment that would disqualify the Trump nominee, the senators asked pointed questions and gave lectures about transparency. But, they embarrassed themselves in the process. Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) got the loudest laugh.Booker's theatrics came at the very beginning of the hearing. He interrupted Chairman Chuck Grassley's opening remarks to announce that he had broken Senate rules and released "committee confidential" documents about Kavanaugh's opinions on racial profiling. He even referred to himself as "Spartacus," as if he was some kind of...

    "Sixteen years ago, a colleague of mine on the staff of Senator Hatch discovered that Democrat staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee had negligently placed their documents on our shared server without protections. I admit that we exploited this to learn simple things about their plans to attack Bush judicial nominees at the behest of the left wing interest groups. I also did pursuant to my duty under the Code of Ethics for Government Service. The documents also revealed unlawful and unethical conduct by Senators. I reported this unethical conduct to the Senate Ethics Committee but never heard back. Among...

    Yet another aging Democrat put on a nationally-televised demonstration of the need for Congressional term limits. Watch as 78-year-old Patrick Leahy makes reference to an email that doesn’t actually exist. Senator Leahy attempts to insinuate the email in question was stolen from him SIXTEEN YEARS AGO as nearly everyone in the hearing room, including Leahy’s own staff, look on increasingly confused as to what the senator is talking about. For his part, Judge Kavanaugh shows a remarkable degree of patience while also managing to entrap the senator in his own confused lie. From there a badly beaten Leahy makes a...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday predicted that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would receive the support of multiple Democrats and be easily confirmed. Graham said on "Fox News Sunday" that he believes at least 55 senators will vote to confirm Kavanaugh if the nominee does well in his confirmation hearings, which begin this week. To receive 55 votes, Kavanaugh would need the support of at least four Democrats. The Republicans currently hold a 50-49 majority in the Senate, which will increase to 51-49 when Gov. Doug Ducey (R) appoints the replacement for the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "I...

    Two former friends of Sen. John McCain say his daughter Meghan McCain's pointed criticism of President Donald Trump in her speech at the Arizona Republican's memorial service on Saturday reflected the character of her late father. "She is her father's daughter," South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "If you say something bad about her dad, you will know it, whether you're the janitor or the President of the United States. She is grieving for the father she adored. I think most Americans understand that." Former independent Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who joined...

    <p>Authorities say a South Carolina woman has been charged with murder after killing her husband by putting eye drops into his water for several days. York County deputies said 52-year-old Lana Clayton confessed to investigators after an autopsy uncovered a high amount of tetrahydrozoline in her husband's body. The chemical is found in over-the-counter eye drops such as Visine. Authorities say 64-year-old Stephen Clayton was found dead July 21 in the couple's home in Clover. Arrest warrants and the statement from deputies didn't give a motive for the alleged poisoning. Lana Clayton also is charged with malicious tampering with a drug product or food. Jail records did not indicate if she had a lawyer.</p>

    In April the inept and corrupt Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he was not going to create a special counsel to investigate the Mueller investigation despite calls from Republicans in the House to do so. Instead, AG Sessions stated that he was going to ask an Obama appointee to look into the situation. We knew then that Sessions was balking and doing all he could to prevent justice in his Justice Department and now there’s proof. CNN first reported that John Huber, the federal prosecutor in Utah, has been investigating Republicans’ allegations that the FBI abused a surveillance program...
