SCGOP: If Graham's The Best We've Got To Offer, Then Frankly, We Suck.

The Dump Lindsey Graham site says it well.

Some tough reflection yields the following: If Lindsey Graham is the best that the South Carolina GOP can offer in 2008, then we're in a world of hurt, friends.

Strom Thurmond and Carroll Campbell must roll over in their graves when Mr. Graham bows to Ted Kennedy and plays footsies with Hillary Clinton. The SC Democrat Party has made it clear that if it appears Graham is safe in 2008, they won't pitch a strong Democrat candidate. That sounds good until you hear the reason: They love Lindsey Graham, and consider him a practicing Democrat!

Mr. Graham has been censured by the Greenville County GOP, and dodged the same fate in Spartanburg only because the county chairman there used archaic technical procedures to prevent a vote on a proposed censure. More censures are in the works across the state. It is clear that Mr. Graham has lost the confidence of those he is supposed to represent.

Demonstration at Spartanburg County Republican Committeemans Meeting, Aug. 23, 2007

A call went out to attend this meeting and/or demonstrate for censure of Empire Senator Lindsey Graham (Republican, S.C.).

The meeting was held outdoors at an ice cream parlor on Blackstock Road.

The Repub’s sound system was awful and it appeared they turned the volume down during critical discussion. They don’t even try to hide their mean tricks.

The place was packed. We were stunned when the Chairman announced there weren’t enough committeemen to make a quorum. What a weasel. He said there would be no voting on business tonight. And they didn’t.

The main attraction of this meeting was a Greenville-style resolution, censuring of Sen. Lindsey Graham. The resolution was read (volume turned down) and was “put into the minutes” but no vote was allowed. We know how the vote would have gone. It was obvious there were more people for censuring Graham than against. The Empire has got to stop the momentum of censuring their chosen ones. Things could get out of hand for them in a hurry. They had to do something to stop this vote and buy some more time.

I’m sure the resolution will be back.

Ron Paul supporters were there in larger than usual numbers. Tee shirts, stickers, signs and banners were all around.

There were people passing out “Dump Lindsey” bumper stickers. All the “dump Lindsey” folks and Ron Paul supporters were in a good mood. We had a good time.

There were quite a few SCLoS’ers, doing their thing.

The Greenville and Spartanburg worthless, commie newspapers were on hand.

There were four identifiable Graham supporters. The continual scowls on their faces told us their thoughts on the event. They didn’t like all the anti-Lindsey signs and talk. One fat Graham-cracker went around taking photos of all anti-Lindsey demonstrators. I suppose we will now be on the “No-Fly” list the goons keep.

This event was still a defeat for Graham.

Patriots had a good showing.

GOP rally in county might put Graham on hot seat

Lindsey Graham is a disgusting thing. Spartanburg knows this just as well as Greenville. Here's what one of his Greenville flunkies had to say about Spartanburg Republicans.

"There is no question that there is some unrest among the hard-core natives," said Chip Felkel, a Republican strategist in Greenville.

"But I hope logic and reason will rule the day. When it comes down to it, the guy's got $6 million in the bank. Unless all this ranting and raving turns into cash, it doesn't matter. And I sure hope Rick Beltram has more control over the party than that."

Did you catch that?

There's unrest among the natives! But don't let their ranting and raving worry you none, old Belt-Ram has the party natives under control (I HOPE). Besides, Senor Gramnisty's got a wad of pesos that would choke a goat! So tell the Republican voters bigots to shut up!


Thursday's forecast: The temperature should drop, but political heat will flare. And there's a slight chance of censure.

That evening, the Spartanburg County Republican Party will hold a rally mostly concerned with presidential politicking, but another hot topic should be U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's quest for re-election.

has drawn heat on the home front for several controversial positions, including siding with Arizona Sen. John McCain on the failed immigration reform deal that rocked Congress - and the Republican voting base - this summer. Opponents of the bill, such as fellow U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., called it "amnesty."

Christians, Obey Romans 13 By Opposing George Bush!

Bush is not yet il Ducce, though he wants to be and very well, soon, may be. Should we respect his edicts? Should we obey them?

The following passage points out that Christian obedience is to God.

Remember that every apostle of Christ (except John) was killed by hostile civil authorities opposed to their endeavors. Christians throughout church history were imprisoned, tortured, or killed by civil authorities of all stripes for refusing to submit to their various laws and prohibitions. Did all of these Christian martyrs violate God’s principle of submission to authority?

So, even the great prophets, apostles, and writers of the Bible(including the writer of Romans Chapter 13) understood that human authority–even civil authority–is limited.

Plus, Paul makes it clear that our submission to civil authority must be predicated on more than fear of governmental retaliation. Notice, he said, “Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.” Meaning, our obedience to civil authority is more than just “because they said so.” It is also a matter of conscience. This means we must think and reason for ourselves regarding the justness and rightness of our government’s laws.

Obedience is
not automatic or robotic. It is a result of both rational

deliberation and moral approbation.

Therefore, there are times when civil authority may need to be resisted. Either governmental abuse of power or the violation of conscience (or both) could precipitate civil disobedience. Of course, how and when we decide to resist civil authority is an entirely separate issue. And I will reserve that discussion for another time.

Beyond that, we in the United States of America do not live under a monarchy. We have no king. There is no single governing official in this country. America’s “supreme Law” does not rest with any man or any group of men. America’s “supreme Law” does not rest with the President, the Congress, or even the Supreme Court. In America, the U.S. Constitution is the “supreme Law of the Land.” Under our laws, every governing official publicly promises to submit to the Constitution of the United States. Do readers understand the significance of this distinction? I hope so.

Read the whole thing.



In Hard Call John McCain explains that he once was lost, but Hallejuah, now he's found!

"When I ran for president in 2000, I took a position I knew to be wrong on a controversial public issue that had a moral component because I thought it might help me win the primary in the state the issue concerned."

Here is what John McCain really means.

I lied - well actually, I was given bad advice (to lie).
I regret that I lied,
1. it didn't work ("did me little political good") and
2. it's wrong to lie ("caused me to be ashamed of myself").

John McCain is so self-critical, so blinded by pride that his confession unintentionally revels a serious moral weakness. In lumping the moral failure of lying, together with the tactical failure of lying ineffectively, he reveals that, while claiming to regret having lied, what he truly regrets is that lying didn't pay off, further revealing, of course, that he is still...un...lying.. Furthermore, John McCain is so bloated with self-importance that he considers even his feigned shame to be newsworthy.

The following imaginary monologue attempts to reveal what McCain's faux contrition tries to attenuate. I hope I haven't been to lenient:

Liberal reporter: Senator McCain, while campaigning in South Carolina you stated that you considered that whatever flag they chose to fly, and wherever they chose to fly it, it was their own business and none of yours. Later you appeared to flip flop. How would you characterize your contradictory statements on this issue.

John McCain: I'm really sorry that I took your enemy's side instead of your side on this issue, even though I really believed that your side was the right side all along, because some people had told me that it would pay off if I lied to them, but it didn't pay off, and so, after that happened I went back to your enemy and told them that I had lied to them.

Liberal reporter: So, had your ploy succeeded in tricking our enemy into believing you to be their friend, resulting, as you intended, in their chosing you as their leader, what would you have said to us to make us realize that you were, in fact, not their friend, but ours?

John McCain: After I got their endorsement I would have become remorseful, and at least when talking to your people, I would have equivocated. You know what I mean.

Liberal reporter: But that didn't happen.

John McCain: No, after they rejected me I knew right away that they were wrong! And I told them this publicly so that you could hear me when I told them that I had lied to them and had never really been their friend at all, but their enemy instead, all along, and had always been on your side, really.

After that I was really ashamed of myself for pretending to be on the side of your enemies. And that's the truth."

Liberal reporter: Thank you Senator McCain.

Unforgivable Lindsey Graham

This comment about Lindsey Graham's tactics hits the nail on the head.

The Southern Avenger reminds us of just how bad Lindsy Graham is.

The Southern Avenger
10 August 2007

Just one week after amnesty bill supporter Senator John McCain did an about-face on illegal immigration in an attempt to salvage his floundering presidential campaign, his ally in that fight, South Carolina's own Senator Lindsey Graham, took his cue. Standing shoulder to shoulder with Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff on Tuesday, Graham looked like a whipped dog, as he talked tough about enforcing our borders and did his best to convince SC voters he really was loyal to them, after spitting in their faces just weeks ago. Back then, when voters called the Senator, Lindsey 'Grahamnesty,' he retaliated by calling them 'bigots.' When one poll showed that 63% of Graham's constituents opposed amnesty and that his own approval rating had plummeted to 31%, a defiant Graham spokesman insisted that 'LindseyGraham has never governed by the polls.' Well he does now."

American Thinker: Lindsey Graham's About-face

This is an excerpt from an exceptional essay found here about what the hell happened. The once and never again Lindsey Graham is what he is and now that South Carolina knows him she doesn't like Lindsey Graham one bit.

"The fallout experienced by Graham following his wholehearted endorsement of amnesty for illegal aliens and his conspicuous pandering to La Raza was extensive. According to an Insider Advantage/Majority Opinion poll, 63% of his constituents disapproved of his support for S.1639. His approval rating plummeted to 31% and campaign contributions critical for the senator's re-election in 2008 ground to a halt. The blogosphere responded with a proliferation of 'Dump Lindsey Graham' websites, with one displaying a Lindsey Graham countdown clock. In response, a Graham spokesman commented with flagrant disdain that 'Lindsey Graham has never governed by the polls - real or bogus - and is not about to start now."

Dump Lindsey Graham

WILL LINDSEY GRAHAM EVEN RUN? You bet he will! What does he care about South Carolina's voters when he has $? million dollars? That is how U.S. Senate seats are apportioned, to the highest bidder. How did this happen? Does the number "17" come to mind?

Read this from The Charlotte Conservative.

Weeks ago we were a part of the original wave of Dump Lindsey Graham web movements. Michelle Malkin brought huge attention to our Lindsey Graham countdown clock to the tune of about 12,000 readers from her site. We appreciate her support on that idea. Now a few weeks have passed and the Dump Lindsey Graham websites and blogs are spreading faster than illegals in Charlotte public schools. I dont think there will be any forgetting of this issue for Lindsey. I will be interested if he chooses to rerun at all or opts out of reelection to avoid the public blasting and exposure he will take from angry South Carolinians"

Dump Lindsey Graham: Gresham Barrett Running For US Senate?

Does South Carolina truly hate Lindsey Graham? Is there something uniquely disturbing about Lindsey Graham? Blogs dedicated to his removal are popping up everywhere.
This is one of them. Is Gresham Barrett considering a run against Lindsey Graham?

"Friday, July 6, 2007
Gresham Barrett Running For US Senate? Over at the Palmetto Scoop, there's speculation that our excellent Congressman, Gresham Barrett, is embarking on a 2010 campaign for Governor of SC. The Scoop has it half right. Mr. Barrett seems to be embarking on a campaign, but it's not for Governor. Strong indications are that the Congressman's mailings and appearances are to test the waters for a 2008 primary challenge to embattled US Senator Lindsey Graham.

South Carolina's Senators Divided on Immigration at Convention

Here are a few comments about Gramnisty.

Latest Update From Lone Protester Terry Funderburk, In His Own Words at

If we do nothing else this year, let us kick Lindsey Graham out of office. Terry Funderburk is just one of thousands of South Carolinians who suffer, and will suffer much worse, util the Lindsey Grahams are removed from office so this unprecedented invasion can be reversed. Here is an excerpt about his ordeal.

"Lindsey Graham though, lol, if it was up to him I would have been run out of business last year instead of this one. I wrote him three letters last year telling him that 85 per cent of South Carolinians were against the amnesty proposal. I finally got a form letter from his office explaining exactly why he was voting for comprehensive immigration reform (key words for amnesty). So we in this state know he isn’t concerned with our main problem, I think his goal was to get a cabinet level position in a McCain administration and he was willing to throw the citizens of South Carolina down the drain to get it. So knowing this I didn’t even try to write him requesting his assistance. Hell, just a few weeks ago he called people like me racists and bigots. So it is too bad for him that McCain’s chances for the presidency are going down in flames. Now Lindsey is going to have to come home and face a state full of angry voters wanting him out of office."

The Free Press -- Independent News Media - Election Issues

It may be the beginning of a new millennium but it feels more and more like the end of an age. The end of reason, the end of piety, the end of remembrance, the end of deference -deference that is, to anything but the rawest displays of money and power.

Decadence slides ever more surely into disaster. Still the music plays and, despite the rising price of fuel, the traffic flows. But the news from the frontier is bleak. And just behind the curtain of normalcy we sense that something unprecedented is being planned, something that will break with the past, something...unthinkable.

The following excerpt is found at The Free Press blog. Read the full essay by clicking here.

Will Bush cancel the 2008 election?
by Harvey Wasserman & Bob Fitrakis
July 30, 2007

It is time to think about the 'unthinkable.'

The Bush Administration has both the inclination and the power to cancel the 2008 election.

The GOP strategy for another electoral theft in 2008 has taken clear shape, though we must assume there is much more we don't know.

But we must also assume that if it appears to Team Bush/Cheney/Rove that the GOP will lose the 2008 election anyway (as it lost in Ohio 2006) we cannot ignore the possibility that they would simply cancel the election. Those who think this crew will quietly walk away from power are simply not paying attention.

The real question is not how or when they might do it. It's how, realistically, we can stop them."
