  • Trump’s State Dept., CIA picks will be confirmed despite Rand Paul’s objections, Lindsey Graham says

    Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said he thinks President Trump’s picks to lead the State Department and CIA will make it through the Senate, despite Sen. Rand Paul’s pledge to try and block the nominees. Mr. Graham said CIA Director Mike Pompeo will make a suitable replacement for Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, since he shares Mr. Trump’s world view — including a tough line against North Korea. “He will get confirmed,” Mr. Graham told CNN’s State of the Union. Mr. Paul, a libertarian-minded Republican from Kentucky, said he fears. Mr. Pompeo is a throwback to Republicans who...

    As Billy Graham is laid to rest in North Carolina today, the 2,000 invited funeral attendees will listen to—or sing together—six songs. Graham, who planned his own funeral [see CT’s live report], was the one who chose them. In this, he seems to have taken the path of his longtime music director Cliff Barrows. “I want a lot of music,” Barrows instructed Billy Graham Evangelistic Association choir director Tom Bledsoe before he died in 2016. “And I want the people to sing.” Graham’s six picks: “Until Then” (Stuart Hamblen, 1958), performed by musical artist Linda McCrary-Fisher“All Hail the Power of...
  • The Heavily Decorated Army Major Escorting Trump At Billy Graham’s Funeral Is Graham’s Grandson

    Donald Trump arrived at Billy Graham’s funeral in North Carolina Friday, where he was escorted by a very special member of the Graham family. As POTUS walked to the tent where Graham’s family and dignitaries were gathered, he was met halfway by a uniformed Army Major. The two saluted each other and the Major escorted the first and second families to their seats. What many watching may not know is the identity of that man. He is Billy Graham’s grandson, Edward. Edward graduated from West Point and served seven tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he was once injured by...

    While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) argued that if Republicans don’t do anything on DACA, the program ends, “and a lot of these young people start getting deported,” it would “destroy” the Republican Party. He further stated that doing nothing on DACA is not “even a viable option.”
  • Billy Graham's Funeral (Is this a vanity?)

    Been around here a long time, but this is my first post. I'm not sure if it's a vanity or not, but hopefully it's well-received. I'm wondering about people's opinion on the question of whether Billy Graham would be receiving the same (well-deserved) honors and attention after his passing if Obama the Commie was still the president. This question occurred to me on the way home tonight, and I'd like to hear what y'all think.

    I wasn’t going to write anything about Billy Graham’s passing simply because I don’t have anything new or interesting to say about him. I never met him, although my grandmother went to hear him out of curiosity at the Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam in 1955 with a fellow nurse. I attend a conservative Reformed church, and so our theology runs to the George Whitefield tradition as opposed to the more Wesleyan tradition of Billy Graham, who apparently preached directly to more than 210 million people—the largest number of anyone in human history. But the response to Graham’s death was interesting,...
  • Billy Graham to lie in honor at Capitol: House speaker

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The body of evangelist Billy Graham will lie in honor under the U.S. Capitol rotunda next week as Congress pays tribute to a clergyman who counseled presidents and preached the Gospel to millions worldwide, House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday. Graham, who died at his home near Asheville, North Carolina, on Wednesday at age 99, will arrive at the white-domed Capitol on Feb. 28 and lie in honor there until the following day, Ryan said in a statement. “Members of the public and Capitol Hill community are invited to pay their respects to the late reverend...

    “Teen Vogue” Columnist Lauren Duca responded to news of Rev. Billy Graham’s death by telling him to, “Have fun in hell, bitch.” Taking to Twitter after news broke that the world-renowned and beloved evangelist had died Wednesday at age 99, Duca mocked Graham’s longevity and hurled her insult: “The big news today is that Billy Graham was still alive this whole time. Anyway, have fun in hell, bitch.” After receiving backlash on Twitter for her hateful irreverence, Duca doubled-down on her comment, declaring that “Respecting the dead” only applies to people who weren’t evil pieces of sh*t while they were...
  • Billy Graham: Pastor to Presidents

    02/21/2018 7:08:30 AM PST · by oxcart · 35 replies
    Billy Graham has often said, “Whether the story of Christ is told in a huge stadium, across the desk of a powerful leader, or shared with a golfing companion, it satisfies a common hunger. All over the world, whenever I meet people face-to-face, I am made aware of this personal need among the famous and successful, as well as the lonely and obscure.” Every U.S. President since World War II has met with Billy Graham. Both Johnson and Nixon, the two who probably sought him the most, offered him high positions in government — which he quickly and politely refused....

    After House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., sent his memo laying out potential abuses of the FISA process by the FBI to the White House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., demanded that he be removed as chairman. Nunes was “deliberately dishonest” in pushing to release a “bogus memo,” Pelosi declared, and had “disgraced the House Intelligence Committee” with his “partisan effort to distort intelligence.” But Democrats can’t so easily dismiss the far more detailed declassified criminal referral written by two respected Republican senators — Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C. — which confirms the claims raised in...

    The Grassley and Graham Memo has just been released, but the Democrats do not want the public to know. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham have been working tirelessly to uncover the truth concerning the Trump dossier/FISA Warrant debacle. The Mainstream News Media does not seem to be reporting on it. You will love reading it, as it is even filled with more truth than the Nunes Memo. Bottom line is Christopher Steele lied or gave false information, and the FBI did not reveal to the FISA Court Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for the dossier. It is strange the...

    DC Whispers ^ | 2-11-18
    The following are the insights and opinions of a former senior congressional staffer who is now enjoying what he calls the “…happy uncertainty of a self-imposed semi-retirement.” He spent nearly eleven years working on Capitol Hill, arriving there shortly before Barack Obama became president, and then leaving shortly after Donald Trump succeeded him. His extended family’s ties to prior administrations go back decades – at the highest levels. Now approaching middle-age, (ancient by D.C. staffer standards) and despite all that time in the belly of the “D.C. beast” he still manages to look younger than his years. He’s quick to...

    A criminal referral from top Senate investigators confirms explosive charges in last week’s House Intelligence Committee memo regarding abuse of surveillance authorities at the FBI and Department of Justice. It also reveals a host of problems arising from the bureau’s cooperation with foreign investigator Christopher Steele, who was working on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The eight-page memo from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) includes underlying evidence to support the claims.“It appears the FBI relied on admittedly uncorroborated information, funded by and obtained for Secretary Clinton’s presidential campaign,...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Monday released a memo referring Trump dossier author Christopher Steele for a criminal investigation that revealed that a friend of Hillary and Bill Clinton fed information for the Steele dossier. According to Grassley and Graham’s memo, which is heavily redacted at the request of the FBI, a foreign source gave information to friends of Bill and Hillary Clinton, who then gave it to an Obama State Department official, who then gave it to Steele. Grassley and Graham’s memo stated: One memorandum by Mr....

    Franklin Graham, one of the nation's most prominent Christian leaders, said Wednesday on the Todd Starnes Radio Show that the Trump presidency faces a grave, domestic threat. "I believe we are in a coup d'etat," Graham told Starnes. "There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force." Graham, the president and CEO of Samaritan's Purse, warned that there are forces at work who want to "wrestle control of the government" away from Trump. "They are not going to use bullets.

    Independent Journal Review (IJR) ^ | Jan 27, 2018 | KELCEY CAULDER
    The White House appears to have banned Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) from participating in immigration reform negotiations due to recent strain between Graham and the Trump administration, as well as other Republicans in the House and Senate. Tensions first rose when Graham advocated for an immigration deal that failed to address President Donald Trump’s main concerns regarding chain migration and border security alongside Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). The situation worsened when the Republican senator criticized chief of staff John Kelly as never having “closed a deal before, politically” and top policy adviser Stephen Miller as being an “outlier” on immigration,...

    Jan 26, 2018 WASHINGTON – As part of their ongoing oversight efforts to ensure that the FBI’s law enforcement activities are free of improper political influence, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) yesterday sent six letters seeking information and documents regarding Christopher Steele’s work on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary for America. The letters seek information and documents relating to those political organizations’ knowledge of and involvement in Mr. Steele’s work and his reported interactions with the FBI while he was working on behalf of...

    snip: On January 4, Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the crime and terrorism subcommittee, sent a criminal referral to the FBI and Justice Department concerning Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the Trump dossier. In a cover letter, Grassley and Graham suggested that Steele might have lied to the FBI during his association with the bureau as he compiled the dossier. That's all the cover letter said. The referral itself, which was classified, made the actual case about Steele. Grassley wrote an unclassified version of the referral for public release — finally, the public could understand...

    The White House on Tuesday hardened its position against a bipartisan proposal in the Senate that would shield young immigrants living in the U.S. from deportation. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders gave her strongest indication yet that President Trump would not sign the measure, written by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), if it reaches his desk. “It’s totally unacceptable to the president and should be declared dead on arrival,” she told reporters. President Trump previously dismissed the proposal in profane fashion when it was first presented to him in the Oval Office, remarks that helped lead to...
