    SOUTH CAROLINA — We’ve all heard the joke: If Atlanta-based Chick-Fil-A took over vaccine drive-through sites, we’d all get our shots in no time. Well, that came true this week for one community in South Carolina. When a drive-through vaccination site in Mount Pleasant got backed up, Mayor Will Haynie did the only thing that made sense: he invited a local Chick-Fil-A manager to the site to help expedite the process. The Atlanta chain, after all, has mastered the art of the drive-through. “We asked local Chick-Fil-A manager Jerry Walkowiak for help today after a computer glitch backed up...

    On Wednesday, former President George W. Bush — very much an opponent of former President Donald Trump — reportedly identified “the savior” who may have been ultimately responsible for Trump’s defeat: House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.). “George Bush said to me today, he said, ‘You know, you’re the savior because if you had not nominated Joe Biden, we would not be having this transfer of power today,'” Clyburn told reporters on a press call. Reporters had asked the whip what he was thinking while Biden took the oath of office. “He said to me that Joe Biden was the...

    (CNSNews.com) – Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that there was a “bicameral, bipartisan effort” to look at censuring President Donald Trump, which she said would hold him accountable and prohibit him from holding office again, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wouldn’t bring it up for a vote. “Well, one of the things, one of the options that was on the table last week when we were going through the impeachment, getting up to D.C. for that, was that there was a bicameral, bipartisan effort to look at censure as an option.

    On December 31, Congressman Joe Wilson issued the following statement: “As a former Lexington County Election Commissioner, not just as a Member of Congress, I am disgusted at the irregularities in the 2020 presidential election. The failure to validate signatures, the omission of witnesses, the interruption of counting before completion, the denial of poll watchers for access to fully observe, the extension of ballots received beyond Election Day, and the registration of illegal aliens, allowing non-citizens to vote, are all an open invitation for fraud. I had counted on courts to fully consider lawsuits by 18 states and 126 members...

    Nancy Pelosi has been reelected speaker of the House by her caucus for the next session of Congress, marking what will be her fourth term with the gavel. The caucus vote was conducted virtually, but Pelosi was approved with a voice vote. Pelosi, 80, did not not face any challenge for her post, but she will also need to secure a simple majority — 218 Democratic votes — by the full House of Representatives in January to be sworn in again as speaker. In 2019, several Democrats voted for someone other than her on the floor, but with a slimmer...
