    Lindsey Graham Calls for Roy Moore to Step Aside but Defends Bob Menendez
    The Democratic senator is accused of sex with underage prostitutes, but Graham told a New Jersey court that he's an honorable man
    by Margaret Menge | 12 Nov 2017

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) said on Friday that if the allegations against Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate Roy Moore are true, he should step aside, and “should be dealt with severely.”

    But Graham not only hasn’t called for Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez (N.J.), accused of having sex with underage prostitutes, to step aside — he also went to New Jersey on his own dime two weeks ago to testify as a character witness in Menendez’s corruption trial, telling the judge that Menendez is “very honest” and “honorable.”

    We live in the Twilight Zone.

    BTW I would be cheering if a meteor hit the Capitol building while Congress was in session.

    So, that should push Moore back up a couple points.
    "The program of liberalism, ...if condensed into a single word, would have to read: property..."

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    -H. L. Mencken

    I'd give all my worldly wealth for 5 minutes behind the woodshed with Lindsey.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    AIPAC Brotherhood

    Menendez reminded AIPAC earlier this year he's an unwavering moral compass pointing due east.
    They fought the Wars
    They lost.
    They turned friends
    into enemies.
    Who became
    friends of our enemies.
    They stood alone, in splendid isolation,
    And said it was their only choice.

    That's not what he said:

    I’m not suggesting AIPAC’s doing anything wrong, quite the contrary. They’re a group of Americans who have banded together to maximize their influence to speak about something important to them that involves a foreign ally. So I think the AIPAC model is a good thing and that’s not my concern. Because they’re very transparent, they have conventions, and we all know how the game’s played there. So I just want to make sure that lobbying on behalf of a foreign government or a US relationship with a foreign government is not a bad thing so long as you do it right.

    It still isn't good publicity, they prefer the shadows.

    He coould be hinting that they need to up their donations to him, he's a bonafide tool of AIPAC and war lobbies:

    Lindsey Graham
    Chairman, Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs, United States Senate
    Senator Graham was elected to represent South Carolina in the United States Senate in 2002. A stalwart supporter of the U.S.-Israel relationship, Senator Graham is the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs. He is responsible for writing the annual foreign bill, which includes $3.1 billion in assistant for Israel, and has authored several provisions that link Palestinian aid to actions they may take at the United Nations. It is hard to think of any pro-Israel initiative over the last ten years that Senator Graham has not played a major role in helping to secure.

    Someday if you hear him questioning gay wedding cakes in his arguments, it won't mean he is opposed to them.

    I have no illusions that he has joined the light side, I am simply confused by the wrigglings of the swamp creature.

    Your suggestion that he is trying to negotiate more donations from them is pretty good.

    I'd wager that if the world knew the truth about things that Lindsey has secretly engaged in, the hypocrisy here would be even more stark.

    If my memory serves me at all, Graham was on the committee that investigated Bill Clinton. I guess he forgot all about that. Maybe he shouldn't be such a loudmouth.
