WISTV [Charleston. SC], by Staff

BEAUFORT, S.C. - For the first time in forty years, a Democrat will hold South Carolina´s first congressional seat. Congressman Mark Sanford held the position for three terms and Republican Candidate Katie Arrington is blaming him for her loss. "The goods news... we are neck and neck in this race and we´re still gonna win this thing," Joe Cunningham told the crowd at his watch party Tuesday night. And he was right. The Democratic candidate beat out Arrington by 1.4 percent. Even though she won four of the five counties, Cunningham took the biggest -- Charleston. "We are really, really, really, happy with this victory,"

KA ran a really poor campaign and had no particularly distinguishing messages. She was very pro-Trump in the primary and that got her the win over Sanford, but then she had nothing in the campaign against Cunningham. Sanford would have cleaned up against Cunningham.

KA was sidelined by that horrible auto accident she sustained, which must have disrupted her campaigning plans and ability. That much I know.

Snow? What Columbia, Lexington can expect
from this weekend’s winter weather
The State [Columbia, SC], by Emily Bohatc    Original Article

Get out your gloves and scarves, Columbia. After a weekend full of chilly rain, forecasters are predicting the area may be getting a little snow. A mix of snow and rain is expected to fall on the Columbia-area Sunday night into Monday morning, National Weather Service Forecaster Jeff Linton said Friday. Because of the rain that is expected to accompany the icy precipitation, Linton said the snow likely will not stick or accumulate on the ground. If the forecast shifts and temperatures drop more than already expected, that increases the chance of a white dusting on the grass Monday morning, he

More than 400 people have already been arrested with thousands of protesters breaking police barriers to inundate the streets of Paris.

President Donald Trump has said that prosecutors found no evidence of campaign collusion with Russia despite a lengthy and costly investigation. ´After two years and millions of pages of documents (and a cost of over $30 million) no collusion!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning, one day after new court filings from special counsel Robert Mueller. The court filings allege Trump´s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, was in touch as far back as 2015 with a Russian who offered ´political synergy´ with the Trump election campaign and proposed a meeting between the candidate and Russian President Vladimir Putin (Tweet)

POLICE have fired tear gas at protestors in Paris as violent demonstrations against French President Emmanuel Macron kicked off for the fourth weekend running. About 1,500 protestors gathered on the Champs Elysees on Saturday morning as France braced for another weekend of mayhem following weeks of violent “yellow vest” protests against the President sparked by fuel taxes. And 127 were arrested after police found them with weapons including hammers and baseball bats. Thousands of police were deployed across the country ahead of the chaos, with 8,000 in Paris.

A YELLOWSTONE volcano eruption could trigger a volcanic winter, which would plunge the globe into freezing conditions and threaten to cut off food supplies, experts have warned. The Yellowstone volcano, located in the US State of Wyoming, has been ranked a “high risk” volcano by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and experts have warned an eruption could one day cause a volcanic winter, threatening to cause chaos across the globe. Dr Christopher Kilburn, a professor at University College London and expert in volcanic hazards, has explained exactly how a volcano can produce what is called a volcanic winter.

US President Donald Trump spoke on Thursday afternoon at the White House Hanukkah reception. The reception was attended by hundreds of US Jewish leaders. In addition to Trump and his wife Melania, the event was also attended by Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen, members of the Trump family and his close advisors. “More than 2,000 years ago, a band of Jewish patriots led by Judah Maccabee reclaimed their freedom from an oppressive dictator who persecuted the Jewish people and ransacked the Holy Temple,” he said. The President noted that the Jewish people throughout history have suffered repression

LONDON - World stocks attempted a rebound on Friday with Asian and European markets gaining modestly after the previous day’s selloff, while oil prices fell as producers bickered over the details of an output cut. The pan-European STOXX 600 index was up 1.2 percent by 0857 GMT, after falling as much as 3.2 percent during Thursday’s rout, which was triggered by the arrest of the chief financial officer of Chinese smartphone-maker Huawei in Canada. The arrest, coming on the heels of a 90-day trade truce between the United States and China, triggered fears that the dispute could escalate further and dented

Three whistleblowers have come forward with hundreds of pages of evidence suggesting wrongdoing at the Clinton Foundation, a Republican congressman says. Mark Meadows, head of the House Oversight Subcommittee, said the documents suggest misappropriation of funds and quid-pro-quo promises made to donors during Hillary´s time as secretary of state. Meadows spoke to Fox News about the documents ahead of an investigative hearing on the Clinton Foundation which is due to take place next week. The hearing will review evidence collected by U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tasked with investigating the Foundation by ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It comes after The Hill reported

For the first time, no USS Arizona survivors are expected to attend the annual commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the pivotal Dec. 7, 1941 day of "infamy" that pulled the U.S. into World War II. The handful of Arizona survivors -- Lou Conter, Don Stratton, Ken Potts, Lonnie Cook and Lauren Bruner -- are all in their 90s and now find travel to be difficult, according to Hawaii News Now.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said without evidence on Thursday Arizona “is bracing for a massive surge” of immigrants along part of the border that has no protective fence, reiterating his call for Democrats to back funding for his proposed border wall. “Arizona, together with our Military and Border Patrol, is bracing for a massive surge at a NON-WALLED area. WE WILL NOT LET THEM THROUGH,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter, appearing to maintain pressure on lawmakers seeking to approve legislation to keep the government open through to Sept. 30 next year.

President George H.W. Bush had a long-lasting impact on Israel and the Middle East. From the Gulf War to the Madrid Conference – what will Bush 41 be most remembered for? Would he stand a chance if he had run for president today? And what is it like to be a presidential historian in the Trump era? Also: A serious look at Israel-Diaspora relations, as we discuss Troy’s newly published book “The Zionist Ideas: Visions for the Jewish Homeland – Then, Now, Tomorrow.” Is it okay to be a nationalist and how should Jews on the Left view Zionism?

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say.
