It seems like since Senator John McCain passed Senator Lindsey Graham has finally found his voice which most of us had thought he didn’t have. And in this latest statement, he found his voice during an interview on the fake news network that is CNN.
Yup, this is the same senator who we all used to call a wimp and who got 1% of the vote in his own state of Kentucky when he ran for president in 2016.
As 100Percent FedUp is reporting, it seems all those shenanigans from Kavanaugh’s hearing have finally wakened Senator Graham in a good way. Although he has spent most of his time in the Senate carrying water for the likes of RINOs like John McCain and Jeff Flake. He has now come onto his own and is acting like how all Republicans should act. Although it makes me wonder if he would have acted this same way if the accused would have been Judge Amy Barrett who isn’t a George W. Bush judge.
Here is more via Business Insider:
“My bullshit meter got pegged,” Sen. Lindsey Graham told Business Insider shortly after the hearing to address the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday.
When Graham became the first Republican to actually ask a question in the marathon hearing in lieu of yielding his time to the outside counsel, he took it to 100.
Graham’s high-tempered excoriation of Democrats for what he said was a politically motivated smear campaign against an otherwise qualified jurist did more than make a few headlines; it galvanized Republicans and fired up a sulking and nervous set of lawmakers.
Once Graham chose to ditch Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona prosecutor who enabled Republicans to avoid any gaffes or unfavorable headlines from the hearing, every other GOP senator on the committee followed. Their themes echoed Kavanaugh’s own defense that this is a disgrace, revenge, and purely about politics. One after the other, Republicans beat their chests and tore into Democrats for what Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called “one of the most shameful chapters in the history of the United States Senate.”
“I didn’t know what I was going to do but I had it up to here with talking about his yearbook and trying to imply that ‘Why won’t you ask for an FBI investigation?’ like he’s the problem,” Graham said. “[Kavanaugh] has stepped up, he never shied away. Those folks on the other side created this problem. That’s when the dam broke for me.”
For Republican senators not on the committee, they returned to Capitol Hill late Thursday evening full of caffeine for a closed-door conference meeting echoing and praising Graham’s tirade.
Graham received a thunderous applause in the conference. Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson likened him to TV’s Matlock. The right wing, pro-Trump online community was rousing with praise for Graham.
Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy said “of course” Graham’s speech resonated with him because the Democrats “destroyed a man’s reputation.”
“I thought he made a good talk,” said Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby. “Matter of fact, I thought Dr. Ford was credible, but I thought Kavanaugh was strong. Very credible, very strong.”
“It’s shameful what has gone on in this country in the last two weeks,” Montana Sen. Steve Daines told Business Insider. “This has brought the United States Senate to an all-time low.”
The fire Graham lighted under their feet changed the mood. Allies of President Donald Trump had soured on Mitchell doing all the questioning for Republicans. Back at the White House, the feeling was similar. Mitchell’s methodical and calculated approach does not exactly illicit high ratings.
But Kavanaugh’s furious defense of himself and his family name, paired with Graham’s tirade, won Republicans’ hearts and minds.
Immediately after the hearing concluded, Trump mimicked Kavanaugh’s testimony and called for a vote on his nomination. Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, a Republican once on the fence about confirming Kavanaugh, declared in a statement that he would vote to confirm.
“Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting. Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The Senate must vote!”
And the night ended well for Graham in Trumpworld. He ate Chick-Fil-a with Fox News host Sean Hannity.”
As you can clearly see by his comments and the article above Senator Graham has had it. And he is done putting up with Democrat shenanigans. He is 100 percent correct, there is no reason why Judge Kavanaugh and his family, and America should have had to go through something like this because the Democrat Party wants power and is upset that they lost the 2016 election to a complete outsider.
Let’s hope and pray Graham is correct when he said he hopes they never get that power they so crave. Because if they do they will have no issue undoing all the great things President Trump has done. Only you and I can stop this from happening by going out and voting on election day.

Mark Zuckerberg Just Stole $315,000 From A Triple-Amputee Vet
Mark Zuckerberg must need money because he just robbed a triple-amputee Iraq War vet blind.
Brian Kolfage joined the Air Force just before 3000 Americans were killed in the September 11, 2001 terror attacks that also destroyed the Twin Towers in New York City. He wanted to serve. He wanted to keep what had happened to thousands of his fellow Americans from happening again. It was his duty, he believed.
During Brian’s second tour in the Middle East, he volunteered for a dangerous mission in Iraq.
On September 11th, 2004, exactly 3 years to the day since the 9/11/01 attacks, a 107 mm rocket landed feet from Airman Kolfage. Instantly, he lost both of his legs just below the hip and his right hand.
Kolfage wasn’t expected to survive, let alone walk again, but he did.
After almost a year recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Kolfage walked out of the facility.
Airman Kolfage continued overcoming the odds by going back to work for the Air Force as a base security manager. He also served on Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford’s Veterans Advisory Committee. Brian went on to enroll at the University of Arizona’s School of Architecture. He learned to draw with his left hand as his dominant right was gone. Kolfage graduated from university and was also awarded the prestigious Pat Tillman Scholar award.
In 2014 Brian was bestowed the George C. Lang Award for Courage, for his fearlessness and also his selfless actions taking care of other wounded veterans.
Today, Brian makes trips to Walter Reed Medical Center and travels the country motivating veterans & others.
In the midst of all this, Senior Airman Kolfage got married & has two wonderful kids.
Even with all of that, Kolfage wasn’t done. He became interested in news publishing and began managing pages on Facebook for news websites. He also co-founded a coffee company, Military Grade Coffee, which donates 10% of all profits back to veteran organizations.
You might not have known it, but Airman Kolfage ran the Right Wing News Facebook page and had been involved with the brand for several years among starting others. That is, until a few days ago when Facebook decided they didn’t agree with Brian’s conservative views. The page had 3.6 million fans, and Brian was a major factor behind its new growth and revitalization.
Over the years, Kolfage invested $315,000 to grow brands on Facebook. Facebook requested admins of pages to invest tons of money to grow and reach larger audiences for the brands he managed. Zuckerberg had no problem taking Brian’s money. But now Zuckerberg & Facebook decided they couldn’t allow the popular conservative page to get in the way of the 2018 midterm elections after it became a pivotal part of President Trumps 2016 upset to Hillary Clinton. Facebook headed up by Zuckerberg used a well-planned opportunity to take out actual bad pages and lumped in Airman Kolfage’s conservative network.
They robbed him blind, they did him dirty. They took $315,000 from his company rolled it up and laughed at his sacrifice. This was purely political, they attacked him personally. But Facebook made one fatal flaw, they underestimated the power of a triple amputee veteran. The underestimated the huge PR mess they are about to be slapped with when Trump has Airman Kolfage in his Oval Office in front of the media, they underestimated the willpower of a veteran who lost so much.
Airman Kolfage wrote that because of Facebook’s actions:
“My income as a father and husband is threatened.
This isn’t the right to free speech I gave my legs and arm to defend. Three limbs wasn’t enough for some … now my livelihood is gone with it.
It is true: I have been managing the Right Wing News Facebook page, and have been involved with the brand for many years.
And just today, Facebook took down our Facebook page, cutting off all contact we had with the millions of people who signed up to follow us, the millions of people who liked what we were sharing online.
I took over managing the page when John Hawkins decided to step aside to pursue other endeavors. John and I have a great relationship and I was honored to have the torch passed down to me. We had a coveted, verified blue check mark 3.5 Million fans, and I invested over $300,000 in ads at Facebook’s own request, nearly begging us to spend spend spend just to reach our fans … whom they kept making more difficult to reach with every passing year.
Never once did Facebook come to us to say there was any issue with Right Wing News or our other pages. Never. But they sure loved taking our money.
We did run multiple Facebook pages; Facebook allows businesses to have more than one page, and we did own them and had them for years. We were not “spamming,” we were not using fake accounts, we were not doing anything “wrong” … except we supported President Trump, and apparently that’s not allowed.
Facebook also deleted my other business page. I own a coffee company called Military Grade Coffee company. We don’t post politics, we sell coffee and support veteran charities. Facebook is maliciously attacking my way of life because of my beliefs, and they don’t care.
What Facebook has done is illegal. It’s a malicious coordinated attacked on everything I fought for and everything generations of Americans fought for. And this is exactly why a Facebook Engineer making 6 figures a year walked out and quit his job today, over the assault on conservative beliefs within his former company.
The New York Times even stated that Facebook made this calculated move to silence thousands of voices (and millions of forwarded messages) because of the upcoming midterm elections.”
I’ve known Brian for years and had the pleasure of working with him on several projects.
As the editor of Right Wing News, I saw how hard he worked to manage the Facebook page, and to ensure it grew in popularity. He is a tireless worker, and extremely proud of what he has accomplished for others on social media. And now Zuckerberg & his company, Facebook, have robbed him of it & his investments. I mean, they even took down his coffee company page. That’s some serious hatred for the man right there. Facebook is literally stripping him of his means to provide for his family. Didn’t he give enough for his country, not to mention, to Facebook? He overcame odds most in this world will never experience, only to be ripped off by Zuckerberg????
That’s a GD shame.
DON’T STOP SHARING THIS UNTIL BRIAN GETS JUSTICE!

Trump Just Revealed Major Admin Leaving His Administration – Sends Shockwaves Through D.C.
It’s no secret that people come and go inside of each administration.
The same is true for the Trump Administration, but the rumors are flying about one of the biggest names inside Trump’s core crew. People are saying he’s actually a Democrat.
Fox News wrote:
In an interview set for broadcast Sunday, President Trump speculated whether Secretary of Defense James Mattis might soon leave the administration, just weeks after a book by journalist Bob Woodward reported that Mattis had privately compared Trump to a “fifth- or sixth-grader.”
Asked by “60 Minutes” host Lesley Stahl whether Mattis would depart, Trump responded, “Well, I don’t know. He hasn’t told me that.”
He continued: “I have a very good relationship with him. I had lunch with him two days ago. … It could be that he is. I think he’s sort of a Democrat, if you want to know the truth. But General Mattis is a good guy. We get along very well. He may leave. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. That’s Washington.”
The president also called reports that the White House is in chaos “so false” and “fake news.” He added, “I have people now on standby that will be phenomenal. They’ll come into the administration.
“Yeah, other people will go, sure,” Trump told Stahl. “We have a great Cabinet. There are some people I’m not happy with. I have some people that I’m not thrilled with. And I have other people that I’m beyond thrilled with.”
“Secretary Mattis is laser-focused on doing his job — ensuring the US military remains the most lethal force on the planet,” Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Robert Manning said Sunday in response.
Trump’s comments come shortly after U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley abruptly announced her resignation. They also highlight what some media reports have indicated is an unusually large number of high-level departures from the Trump administration — figures recently contextualized in an analysis by the nonprofit Brookings Institution.
Woodward’s book “Fear,” released in September, claimed that Mattis told associates at a National Security Council meeting this year that Trump had the understanding of, and often acted like, a “fifth- or sixth-grader.”
And after Syrian dictator Bashar Assad launched a chemical attack on Syrians in April 2017, Woodward’s book reported that Trump demanded Mattis launch an assassination attempt.
“Let’s f—ing kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the f—ing lot of them,” Trump reportedly said. But Mattis, according to the book, told an aide: “We’re not going to do any of that. We’re going to be much more measured.”
According to Woodward, Mattis also was caught by surprise while on vacation about Trump’s proposed ban on transgender troops. Mattis, who reportedly opposed the policy, has since unveiled a policy largely adopting Trump’s requests, although several lawsuits have temporarily put a hold on enforcing it.
In a statement, Mattis said that “the contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward’s book were never uttered by me or in my presence.”
Trump, for his part, has openly wondered whether the Pulitzer Prize-winning Woodward is a “Dem operative.” In a Twitter post last month, Trump called his book a “con on the public.”
The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2018
Mattis, who Trump named as Defense Secretary in 2016, previously served as head of United States Central Command under former President Barack Obama, replacing David Petraeus. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve at the age of 18 and became a second lieutenant after graduating from Central Washington University in 1971.
Known as “Mad Dog” Mattis, the defense secretary has openly disagreed with Trump on several key issues. He favored preserving aspects of the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, which Trump repeatedly maligned as a “horrible, one-sided” giveaway before unilaterally dumping it and restoring sanctions earlier this year.
Mattis, who also took issue with the Obama administration’s approach to Iran, criticized parts of the deal, but said it included “robust” oversight measures and overall helped U.S. interests.
Additionally, Trump and Mattis have sparred over the role of NATO, with Trump regularly criticizing its member nations for not contributing more of their GDP to national defense. Mattis views the alliance as a key to maintaining international order.
Mattis further has characterized global warming as a national security threat, while Trump has said the issue is highly politicized and over-emphasized. Last year, he dropped climate change from his national security strategy.
Still, Mattis has turned Trump around to some of his positions. He famously convinced the president to abandon his stated desire to torture terror detainees, and also persuaded him to send more troops to Afghanistan.
Mattis is showing no outward signs of withdrawing from his normal duties.
On Tuesday, he will begin his second trip this year to Vietnam, in a sign of how much the Trump administration is trying to counter China’s military assertiveness by cozying up to smaller nations in the region. Mattis will visit Ho Chi Minh City, the most populous city and the economic center. It used to be known as Saigon.
The arrival of Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel to the White House in May has, however, been seen as a sign that Trump is planning to fire Mattis after November midterm elections. Ricardel and Mattis have previously sparred.
Similarly, the hiring of the hawkish former U.N. ambassador John Bolton to be national security adviser in March signaled Trump’s shift further to a hardline stance than Mattis is known for advocating. “I heard you’re actually the Devil incarnate and I wanted to meet you,” Mattis told Bolton in an exchange captured by microphones when they met at the Pentagon earlier this year.
In September, Mattis downplayed reports that he would soon be exiting the Defense Department.
“Somebody cooks up a headline,” he told reporters on the steps on the Pentagon. “They then call to a normally chatty class of people, they find a couple of other things to put in, they add the rumor, somebody else on the other coast starts writing the same thing — next thing you know you’ve got a story.
“It’ll die down,” he added. “How many times have we been through this now, just since I’ve been here? It’ll die down soon and the people who started the rumor will be allowed to write the next rumor, too.”
We’ll see how this all turns out. We now the media isn’t to be trusted.
