South Carolina Senator (R) and Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee who parades as a conservative but constantly stabs them in the back and protects the deep state. Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He grandstands in highly public hearings, but then never does anything to expose deep state corruption, in fact, he does the exact opposite by helping to cover their crimes. He has stood with conservatives on abortion, gay marriage, and other hot topics but supports mass immigration and many big government bills.
In 1988, Graham went into private law practice and in 1992 was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives. In 1994, he became the first Republican to represent South Carolina’s Third Congressional District in Washington since 1877. He quickly became powerful as a member of the Judiciary Committee during the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton in 1998. Graham opposed some articles, but vigorously supported others. In January and February 1999, after two impeachment articles had been passed by the full House, he was one of the managers who brought the House’s case to Clinton’s trial in the Senate. Though the Senate did not convict Clinton, Graham became nationally known. Lindsey Graham was elected to the Senate in 2002, winning 54% of the vote.
During the Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for Judge Samuel Alito for a seat on the United States Supreme Court, Graham sparked controversy. He asked Alito, “Are you really a closet bigot?” Alito answered “I’m not any kind of a bigot, I’m not.” and Graham continued his statement by expressing his opinion that Alito definitely was not a bigot. Alito’s wife cried and left the hearing briefly.4
Neocon Lindsey Graham swore an oath to the Constitution, not to presidential power. He violated that oath when he supported granting President Obama trade promotion authority, the power to entangle the Untied States in sovereignty-compromising deals with the European Union and Pacific nations. He also voted for reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank, raising the national debt ceiling, and supplying another trillion dollars to fund socialistic agencies of the federal government. And that’s just some of his record over the past year. Check out his voting adherence to the Constitution as calculated by the Freedom Index.5
Not alone in what he supports, Senator Graham has become an outspoken leader of the neoconservative wing of the Republican Party. He supports going to war without a required declaration, entangling the United States in the UN and harmful trade pacts, and backing continuation and expansion of federally imposed socialism. This isn’t conservatism; it’s neoconservatism. And it’s terribly bad for our country.
Will Folks, a conservative political blogger in South Carolina, says, “The joke here is Graham has a ‘count to six’ approach to governing: He spends the first four years of his term doing whatever he wants, veering off toward the left, and then the last two years, when the electorate is paying more attention, he comes right.”1
Graham is “never flustered, and just a natural at dealing with people who don’t like him,” says David Woodard, a political-science professor at Clemson University who ran Graham’s first two campaigns for the House of Representatives and recalls the first-term congressman as quickly becoming the unofficial social director for his freshman class, though he added, “You’re going to find Lindsey knows a lot of people, but he’s not close to anybody.”1
Is Lindsey Graham gay?
Gay porn star Sean Harding said:
There is a homophobic republican senator who is no better than Trump who keeps passing legislation that is damaging to the lgbt and minority communities. Every sex worker I know has been hired by this man. Wondering if enough of us spoke out if that could get him out of office?
“Lady G is a very open secret here in DC.” replied another tweet. Graham has denied the charges, joking: “I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men. I’m sure hundreds of ’em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge – but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry.”6
While it does seem obvious that Graham is compromised in some way, it doesn’t necessarily mean he is gay. This could be a ploy by the LGBTQ community to smear him because they feel that if the rumers are true then why is he not supporting their cause more. Who knows? Personally, I think McCain got him involved in UkraineGate and that’s the real blackmail.
Anti-Trumper to MAGA-Man?
On June 1, 2015, Graham announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for in the 2016 presidential election. Donald Trump blasted the former presidential candidate Lindsey Graham for criticizing his electability and temperament to be president during the 2016 campaign. “I think Lindsey Graham is a disgrace, and I think you have one of the worst representatives of any representative in the United States, and I don’t think he should run. I don’t think he could run for dog catcher in this state and win again. I really don’t. Other than that, I think he’s wonderful. He’s one of the dumbest human beings I’ve ever seen,” Trump said.2
While it seems Graham has changed his tune about Trump in many ways (supportive words), his actions reflect a different story in many respects.
On May 1, 2019 Lindsey Graham, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, promised investigations on how the Mueller probe started. He made the the comments during testimony by US Attorney General Bill Barr in front of the US Senate. However, he lied. Graham never scheduled a single committee hearing on Deep State, FBI, CIA, Spygate, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Mueller, Stefan Halper, George Papadopoulos, Tom Fitton, Sidney Powell, Joe diGenova, John Brennan, James Comey, Chris Wray, etc.
Here is the list of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings since Lindsey Graham made that lie back in May 2019. In October 2019 Maria Bartiromo confronted Graham about his promise to call in deep state witnesses before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Lindsey lied and said he would call in deep state witnesses after the Horowitz Report was released in December 2019. He never did.
On 6 September 2020, Maria Bartiromo again confronted Senator Lindsey Graham about calling in deep state witnesses before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Lindsey later said he will wait to call witnesses until the General Flynn case is over. In the past three months he has called three or four witnesses and treated them with kid gloves. He then told Republicans to “stay tuned.” This is something Lindsey has been saying for over two years now as he has shirked his responsibility as Judiciary chairman. Lindsey is a liar and a snake.3
On 27 August 2020, Graham finally brought in Joe Pientka, a deep state, Trump-hating FBI agent, involved in the Russia collusion coup but then he failed to tell key Senate stakeholders (including the president pro tempore of the US Senate Chuck Grassley) that he was holding the hearing.
Immigration & Gang of Eight
Graham has been an adamant supporter of mass immigration, and his statements on immigration indicate that he puts a greater priority on immigrants than American citizens. He supported “comprehensive immigration reform” and of S. 2611, the McCain-Kennedy Bill of 2006 as well as the equally hotly debated S. 1348 of 2007, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007. Despite Graham’s support, the bill failed on a key Senate vote on June 28, 2007. Graham’s views on immigration have lead criticisms for conservatives. Popular radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has referred to him as Senator “Grahamnesty.” Graham was one of eight senators that participated in the Gang of Eight (immigration), a bipartisan effort to pass amnesty disguised as “immigration reform”.4
Graham, an opponent of parental choice in vaccination, has opposed Sen. Rand Paul’s position that the matter should be voluntary, making implications against individual rights to choose not to vaccinate. In addition, despite criticizing one of Paul’s statements out of a lack of “scientific basis”, Graham said that “every American” should vaccinate their children unless there’s a scientific basis that argues against such.4
