    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) revealed Saturday he has drafted motions to subpoena former Vice President Joe Biden, his youngest son Hunter Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and the so-called “whistleblower.” Hawley will attempt to force a vote on the subpoenas if the Senate approves additional witnesses and documents as part of the upper chamber’s trial. The Missouri Republican’s pledge mirrors one made by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who earlier this month threatened to force a vote on subpoenaing Hunter Biden and the so-called “whistleblower” if Republicans grant the Democrats’ demand for more witnesses. Hawley’s motion is likely...

    As part of President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team, Alan Dershowitz is expected to argue on behalf of the president at the Senate trial early next week. But in a 2016 book he authored, the famed defense attorney called Trump a “destabilizing and unpredictable candidate,” warning that the then-presidential candidate “openly embraces fringe conspiracy theories peddled by extremists.” Dershowitz wrote those statements in his book titled “Electile Dysfunction: A Guide for Unaroused Voters.” In a phone call with NBC about his comments in the 2016 book, Dershowitz clarified his views about the president. “I was campaigning for Hillary Clinton at...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says he will vote against a motion to subpoena Hunter Biden if a majority of colleagues agree next week that additional witnesses and documents need to be summoned for President Trump’s impeachment trial. If Republican colleagues introduce a motion to subpoena former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Graham said “I vote against it.” Graham’s opposition essentially kills the threat that Republicans have wielded in recent weeks that if Democrats win a motion to hear from additional witnesses such as former national security adviser John Bolton and acting White House chief of staff Mick...

    Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign in South Carolina contacted law enforcement officials on Thursday after undercover journalists with James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas pressed the campaign to answer questions about violent remarks made by a paid Sanders campaign staffer. The move by the Sanders campaign to call the police on reporters for asking them tough questions comes after Project Veritas released video earlier this week that allegedly showed Sanders field organizer Martin Weissgerber saying he wanted to kill wealthy people and throw Republicans into camps. The police officer who responded told Project Veritas, “They said they are going to have no comment....

    CNN anchor John Berman had harsh words for senators who did not stay inside the Senate chamber as the House impeachment managers presented their case against President Trump on Wednesday. Berman especially called out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). "The presentation from the House managers is earning praise even from Republicans. We have a picture to show you, late last night, that’s Senator Lindsey Graham, one of the president’s fiercest defenders, telling lead manager Adam Schiff that he had done a good job. Really well-spoken, he said. Although it does beg the question, how would Senator...

    CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - James Gosnell, the magistrate who presided over Emanuel AME church shooter Dylann Roof’s bond hearing in 2015, had more than $37,000 in items stolen from his home over the weekend according to an affidavit. Brice Johnson, 22, has been charged with grand larceny and first-degree burglary. He was given a $150,000 bond on Tuesday. According to prosecutors, Gosnell had come across Johnson before back in the summer of 2019 when he gave the 22-year-old man a $5,000 bond for an unlawful firearm carry charge. In this latest incident, Gosnell told investigators that he had left for...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced that his initial plan of a pre-trial dismissal of the impeachment case against President Trump is now unlikely to happen, but he is pushing for the trial to begin and end as quickly as possible. The Senate trial is set to begin Tuesday. Graham had previously floated the idea that the GOP majority could immediately vote to dismiss the case before hearing any arguments, but now he states that this does not appear to be a possibility given the lack of sufficient Republican support for such action.

    KUHNER: Obama's Tucson degradation President turned memorial program into political rally By Jeffrey T. Kuhner The Washington Times Thursday, January 13, 2011 President Obama is cynically exploiting the tragic shooting in Tucson for political gain. His memorial address Wednesday night was a surreal spectacle in narcissistic self-congratulation. It dishonored the victims... Instead of being a solemn and serious event, the memorial resembled a pro-Obama pep rally. The president of Arizona University praised Mr. Obama for his "visionary" and "courageous" leadership.... students regularly cheered, clapped, whistled and hollered. All the while, the president basked in his newfound glory.... Mr. Obama lectured...

    Adam Gorlitsky hit the wall hard during his second marathon attempt around the mile 20-mark this past Saturday at the Charleston Marathon in South Carolina. The only other time he had ever run this far was during his first marathon attempt last March at the Los Angeles Marathon. While battling against pain in his wrists and legs and pushing the limits on the motors on his ReWalk Robotic Exoskeleton, Gorlitsky fought on, not only hoping to capture his first marathon finish, but also better the world record for fastest marathon in a robotic walking machine. He did just that after...

    SOUTH CAROLINA, USA — South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster and other pro-life advocates gathered Wednesday to fight for the so-called "Heartbeat Bill."

    Presidential contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Tuesday that she would begin to forgive student loan debt on the first day of her administration, using legal tools that would allow her to bypass Congress. The announcement, which comes just weeks before voting begins in the first primary and caucus states, adds urgency to legislation she introduced over the summer to cancel the bulk of the nation’s outstanding student loan debt. That bill, introduced with Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., would forgive up to $50,000 in student debt for individuals with household incomes under $100,000. But Warren wrote in her plan on...

    Life News ^ | January 10, 2020 | Micaiah Bilger
    When the South Carolina Senate convenes Tuesday, lawmakers are expected to consider a bill to ban abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable. The heartbeat bill passed the state House in April, and Republican Gov. Henry McMaster said he would sign it. The South Carolina legislature has a two-year session. State House Bill 3020 requires abortion practitioners to test for an unborn baby’s heartbeat and prohibits the abortion if they detect one. An unborn baby’s heartbeat typically is detectable about six weeks of pregnancy, so the legislation would ban most abortions. It allows exceptions for rape, incest and risks...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said President Trump’s speech on Iran will be a highlight of his presidency, comparing it to former President Reagan's 1987 speech in Berlin urging Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall." The Wednesday night remarks on Fox News by Graham, who frequently offers public praise of Trump, were ridiculed as hyperbolic by critics. “This speech will be talked about long after his second term,” Graham said. “This is on par with Reagan's ‘tear down this wall’ speech.”

    A South Carolina senator has raised a bill that, if passed, would require the state to compensate women who are unable to obtain abortions because of a proposed ‘heartbeat bill’ banning abortion once a preborn child’s heartbeat can be detected. SB 928, entitled the “South Carolina Pro Birth Accountability Act,” states that a woman who is unable to have an abortion because of the law would be forced to be a “gestational surrogate” for the state “which cannot itself physically conceive or carry a child.” The bill refers to a preborn child as an “unborn embryo” and falsely claims that...

    Imagine if a district attorney charged you with wrongdoing, then let the charges hang over you indefinitely? That’s the stunt House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been pulling, sitting on the articles of impeachment against President Trump since Dec. 18 with zero regard for the Constitution. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham accuses House Democrats of “trying to hold these articles over the head of the president,” denying him a chance to be acquitted.
