    Reliably red on the political map, Huntington is a West Virginia town with a 191-year-old university, a storied football team and more than 100 churches. It’s where Will Lockwood graduated from high school. It’s where he enrolled at Marshall University. It’s where he first tried OxyContin. By the time Lockwood entered Marshall as a freshman, Detroit dealers were trickling into Huntington selling OxyContin and pills with OxyContin’s active ingredient, oxycodone. Even though Lockwood could step out his front door and get the drug, Detroit street dealers weren’t the preferred supplier. Florida was. It may be 1,000 miles away, but to...

    The Senate on Wednesday took a symbolic shot at President Trump’s trade policy amid anxiety on Capitol Hill over his tariff strategy. Senators voted 88-11 to instruct lawmakers hashing out a deal on a government funding bill to include language “providing a role for Congress” on tariffs implemented for national security reasons, known as Section 232 of the trade laws. The vote is nonbinding, meaning lawmakers don’t have to add trade language into the funding bill. But the vote margin, with more senators supporting it than the amount needed to override a veto, underscores the depth of concern on Capitol...

    Following the social unrest over Confederate flags, statues and symbols in 2015, a lot of southerners and their supporters around the country were rather unhappy with the results. (Regular readers already know you can count me among their ranks.) One of the most high-profile battles in that struggle took place at the capitol in South Carolina. There, the Confederate Battle Flag was finally lowered for the last time on July 10th of that year. Now, three years later, the flag is flying again… at least for a few hours. Some sons (and daughters) of the South are raising a temporary...

    The Richland County Sheriff's Department and Columbia Police Department say a combined 60-day initiative aimed at reducing gun violence and seizing weapons was a success. “This is not something we’ve created to make people feel good," Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said, calling gun violence the most prominent problem in the Midlands. "This is something we want to work." As he spoke, Lott stood beside several photos of people killed by gun violence. "They're real people," Lott said. "There's real pain, and families are hurting. ... It's just not a number." Since the initiative began on April 24, the Richland...

    A White House aide indicted for allegedly firing a gun at her boyfriend, a U.S. Capitol Police officer, has resigned. Barvetta Singletary submitted her resignation effective Aug. 28, a White House representative said Wednesday. Her resignation was accepted. Singletary is departing the West Wing three weeks after the Aug. 7 incident, in which police say she confronted her boyfriend about another woman. During the dispute at her Maryland home, Singletary allegedly fired her boyfriend’s gun at a sofa after he refused to give her his cellphone password. No one was injured. Singletary, 37, was indicted on assault charges Tuesday. She...

    A Rock Hill man has been charged with domestic violence against his wife involving — the man's pit bull. John Louis Walch, 59, is accused of opening a cage that held his pit bull in June and urging it to attack his wife, according to police and court records. Walch's wife was found under attack by the dog by responding officers, police said. Officers had to shoot the dog to stop the attack, police said. The use of a dog of any kind as a weapon in domestic violence is a first in York County, said Jenny Desch, the 16th...

    Many conservatives aren’t exactly fans of Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, as he has a tendency to more often than not side with the bipartisan establishment over the GOP base on a number of issues. But he has been coming around a bit more lately, becoming more outspoken in his support of President Donald Trump and vociferously calling out misdeeds and wrongdoing where it is patently obvious. For example, check out his rather pointed line of questioning during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray to discuss the...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that he “doesn’t give a shit” about critics who don't like him working with President Trump. “If you don’t like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don’t give a shit,” Graham told CNN’s “At This Hour.” Graham, who unsuccessfully ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016 and blasted Trump throughout the primary, said he trusts and likes the president. “I’ve got a relationship with the president at a time when he needs allies,” Graham said. The South Carolina senator has praised Trump for conducting missile strikes...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., warned that if Obama administration officials he referred to a congressional task force for testimony on the Russia investigation refuse to cooperate, they will face subpoenas. Nunes wrote a letter Monday to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., with a list of 10 names from the Obama-era State Department and White House on Monday, urging them to interview these individuals in an "open setting." During a Monday evening interview on Fox News, Nunes emphasized that because all the people on his list are American...

    The New York Times editorial board is calling on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her top two deputies to step aside and allow younger Democratic members to lead the caucus. The Times takes aim at Pelosi, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Democratic Assistant Leader Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., criticizing the trio for maintaining their power rather than preparing the next generation. "For too long, this regime has clung to power at the expense of future leaders," the Times editorial board writes. "Neither of Ms. Pelosi’s two chief deputies, Steny Hoyer, the party whip, and Jim Clyburn, the...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said it is “fake news” to say that Russia did not meddle in the 2016 presidential election. “The idea that Russia did not meddle in our election is fake news,” Graham said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “They did meddle in our election and they're doing it again in 2018,” he added. President Trump said on Friday that he will press Russian President Vladimir Putin on Moscow's meddling during their meeting later this month. “We don’t want anyone tampering with elections," Trump said, promising Russia’s interference in U.S. elections will be on the summit’s...
  • 'Go home' chants at Jim Acosta weren't racist

    The Washington Examiner ^ | June 26, 2018 | Emily Jashinsky
    Jim Acosta, a Washington-based CNN reporter, visited South Carolina to cover President Trump's rally on Monday night. Accordingly, Trump supporters chanted, "Go home, Jim!" at the correspondent, who's become a favorite target of the president's base (a status he clearly relishes to some extent). The chant for Acosta to "go home" was described in a Buzzfeed report on the rally as "a taunt that sounded especially menacing when aimed at a reporter with a Hispanic surname and a father who fled Fidel Castro’s Cuba." Put in less tactful language, the contention is that it was racist. It wasn't — it...

    West Columbia, South Carolina (CNN)It was fitting that President Donald Trump chose his rally in South Carolina Monday night to thank film director David Lynch for his recently announced support. Lynch, who is best known for such cinematic trips into the surreal as "Blue Velvet" and "Wild at Heart," could not have directed the scene any better. I felt like I was in one of his movies. Approximately three hours before Trump took the stage in West Columbia, an elderly woman walked right up to me and ordered me to leave the venue. Her language would likely make her grandkids...
