Rest in peace, Lindsey Graham
Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 9/1/2018 5:34:34 AM

We lost two mavericks within a week. On Saturday, we lost the legendary John McCain. On Tuesday, we lost his loyal sidekick, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham. Graham remains alive and well, but after serving for two decades as Robin to McCain’s Batman, Graham buried whatever remained of his own reputation for iconoclasm even before his partner’s funeral. On Tuesday, Graham took a seat on the couch of “Fox & Friends,” President Trump’s favorite show, and sealed his transition from apostate to Trump apparatchik. “Word of caution to the public,” he said. “A lot of people try to convict President Trump.

Dana Milbank is a worm.

If you ever need to know who the RINOs are, just ask the left ... they know the players on their team. No name was the quarterback. Graham was his wide receiver.
I have been learning a lot about the team by watching the tributes.

Maybe Graham is finally seeing the light. Hopefully he will now be more independent. McCain was a bad influence on the senate. He appeared to be a bully.

All that gushing over McCain and all the accolades for this pitiful, venal man turned me completely off, so I turned the news completely off. As for Graham, I still don’t know who he is.

Lindsey needs to hitch his wagon to another star now that McCain is dead. Lindsey is attempting to reposition himself in a way that is most advantageous to him. It has nothing to do with principle, as usual.

I am amazed that when the evil spell that McCain had on him seemed to disperse a few months ago, Sen Graham seemed to wake up, come to his senses and notice that Trump is fixing a lot of our problems.

It amazes me that so few can look around and see the good things that are happening. Kudos to those few who can see, and can change their minds. So many are incapable of adjusting based on facts.

If Sen Graham is actually going to work for the good of America, then welcome to the team.

"I want them to talk about racism every day,” Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump’s former strategist, told The American Prospect last year. “If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.” Bannon was tapping into an old American tradition.

A federal judge barred the Trump administration on Monday from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally. U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar issued a temporary restraining order after hearing arguments in San Francisco. The request was made by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights, which quickly sued after President Donald Trump issued the ban this month in response to the caravans of migrants that have started to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border.

An aspiring film actress on Monday filed a restraining order against lawyer Michael Avenatti – just days after he was detained by police on domestic violence charges, according to court records obtained by The Blast. Mareli Miniutti, an actress who appeared in Ocean’s 8, filed the domestic violence restraining order Monday in Los Angeles, the report said. It wasn’t immediately clear if Miniutti was the woman who accused Avenatti of domestic violence last week. Miniutti did not immediately respond to Fox News´ request for comment.

Is America a great country or what? Where else can you work as a "public servant" most of your life and cash in to the tune of tens of millions of dollars when you "retire"? Michelle Obama, wife of former president Barack Obama, is in the midst of a book tour to sell her autobiography Becoming. It´s a sur- fire best seller and the book tour itself will net her millions. She also gets $225,000 a pop in speaking fees. Combine that with the cash being raked in by her husband and a strong case can be made

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear a case next year about whether the Constitution permits a 40-foot cross honoring World War I veterans on a traffic island in Bladensburg, Md. Lawyers seeking to preserve the war memorial appealed the case to the high court months ago. But after Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the lawyers began planning to emphasize additional arguments, said Ken Klukowski, a lawyer at First Liberty Institute, a conservative legal group representing the American Legion, a veterans group involved in the case.

Rain is on its way to the Golden State. Firefighters battling the deadly wildfires raging at both ends of California will get some respite when a rainstorm hits Tuesday night into Wednesday, meteorologists said. Additional rounds of rain are expected in northern California, near the devastating Camp Fire, Thursday and Friday, according to Accuweather Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll. “The rain mid- to late week will greatly aid crews battling the Camp Fire,” said Doll. Southern California, where the destructive Woolsey Fire is raging, will also see rain midweek, but not as much as northern and central areas of the state.

Georgia Gov.-elect Brian Kemp should not be treated as a “normal head of the state” because of allegations of voter suppression during this month´s election, a former ethics chief for the Obama administration said Sunday. Norm Eisen, who also served as U.S. ambassador to the Czech Republic from 2011 to 2014, was responding to allegations about Georgia´s gubernatorial race that were posted on Twitter by Ari Berman, a writer for liberal publications such as Mother Jones and the Nation.

Looking out the window on icy snow this cold, gray mid-November morning, it is hard not to make the comparison. Minneapolis is looking more and more like Moscow on the Mississippi. Predictions by global warming enthusiasts not withstanding, the weather is not the only similarity. A grayness hovers over Minnesota like a fog. It is a heaviness. It feels oppressive. The gray funk resulting from the reality that the Left has strengthened its grip on this state and its government. The Governor-elect wasted little time announcing that we should brace for the jolt of a hefty tax increase on gasoline.

The 2018 World Scrabble Championship was held last month in London. The champion, 51-year old Nigel Richards, played “groutier” (meaning “sulky”) for the winning 68 points. This was Mr. Richards’s fourth world title in English Scrabble; he also took the French Scrabble title this year for the second time, even though he doesn’t speak French. If Mr. Richards’s dominance of competitive Scrabble is clear, there is a less noticed but more significant pattern in the game: Since the World Scrabble Championship began in 1991, all winners have been male. The North American Scrabble Championship has had one female winner

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. That age-old advice about the distinction between freedom and wisdom came to mind as I read the ruling that requires the White House to reissue media credentials to CNN blowhard Jim Acosta. Federal Judge Timothy Kelly said Acosta must be allowed to return because there was no due process in the decision to suspend him. Kelly, appointed by President Trump, emphasized he wasn’t ruling on the merits of the suspension or Acosta’s behavior, only the process.

The number of people who remain missing in the wake of a pair of ferocious wildfires that have been blazing across both ends of California for more than a week spiked to nearly 1,300 late Saturday.

Officials said that 63 of the remains have been positively identified so far.

Barack Obama trashed President Trump on Monday night while speaking about ways to mobilize Americans to bring about social change at an Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago. Arrogant Obama accused President Trump of ignoring the climate change hoax because he’s a racist with mommy issues. “The reason we don’t” invest in climate change policies, Obama said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism…mommy issues.” The audience of drones laughed after Obama trashed Trump.

Democrat Stacey Abrams isn´t backing down from her fight against what she calls voter suppression tactics and election mismanagement after losing the Georgia governor´s race. In fact, Abrams said she experienced the problems in her state firsthand — after nearly being denied a ballot during early voting. In an interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee said that when she went to vote last month, a poll worker initially told her that she had requested an absentee ballot and couldn´t cast an in-person vote. Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

Contrary to suggestions of a slow-down, the number of Americans severing their ties to cable and satellite TV soared to the largest number ever during the third quarter this year. For the first time satellite and cable TV providers lost more than a million subscribers from July through September this year. To be exact, they lost 1.1 million customers. Which is a lot of of monthly fees gone poof! Dish TV lost 367,000 satellite subscriber in the third quarter compared to gaining 16,000 in the previous third quarter.

Peggy Noonan’s intense dislike for President Donald Trump undermines her credibility as a fair and balanced columnist: She cannot be true to her trade when she hates the objects of her pen. With the Trumps, she has lost all sense of balance. Her unwarranted attack on First Lady Melania Trump last weekend in the Wall Street Journal is plain ugly. In a column titled “Melania’s Misstep and Michelle’s Mystery,” Noonan declares her love for former first lady Michelle Obama after reading her memoir, Becoming. Noonan should know by now that every auto-biographer blows his/her own trumpet.

Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams (D) defeated incumbent GOP Rep. Mia Love by fewer than 700 votes in a hotly contested race for Utah’s 4th Congressional District, turning the district blue for the first time in six years. The race had been initially too close to call, with both McAdams and Love at different points taking a slight edge over each other. In the end, the Associated Press called the race for the Democrat on Nov. 20. Polls had showed McAdams with a slight edge over Love, with Sabato´s Crystal Ball shifting her race from a “toss-up” to “leans
