Lindsey Graham challenger
Nancy Mace´s biggest obstacle:
Her association with FITSNews

City Paper [Charleston, SC], by Chris Haire

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/3/2013 4:27:22 PM

Goose Creek resident Nancy Mace officially announced her campaign to defeat U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham in the 2014 Republican Party primary. The first woman to graduate from the Citadel, Mace is a well-regarded up-and-comer in Palmetto State politics, counting at least one notable South Carolina Tea Party fave as an ally, state Sen. Tom Davis (R-Beaufort). However, if Mace truly hopes to secure the SCGOP nomination, she will need to answer questions about another comrade, Will Folks of FITSNews. As the former co-owner of FITSNews, Mace presided over the South Carolina political gossip site during its most infamous days;

Comments:
Senator Graham´s luck may be holding. This lady sounds like a nasty piece of work.

Article says Nancy had little or no control over editorial comment: I´d vote for Nancy over the traitor Graham any day of the week.

But, you can make sure the Democrats (Progressive Hate Machine) will Pick her as a target, freeze her, personalize her, and polarize her.

Attn, OP, be very cautious as to what you believe. Graham packs a lot of weight in SC and any newspaper would be crazy to cross him. Grahams home town is also my home town, I live about 5 miles from his house which he rarely occupies, I have supported him financially for many years. In the next primary, he will not get my vote!

Actually, the owner of a publication does have a lot of editorial control, no matter what anyone claims to the contrary. Mace will probably have to explain at some point why, when she was co-owner of FITnews, the publication went after Nikki Haley so viciously.

Notice how the RAT infested media whores always insist that a conservative Republican (especially from the Tea Party) must address, discuss, and separate themselves ... over and over and over again ... from any real, perceived or manufactured issue that the RAT infested media whores deem "newsworthy."

But when a Democrat acts like his or her party´s symbol, no Democrat is asked to account for their disgust or complaint about that ... think Nancy Pelosi, who told the media that they shouldn´t equate her with her old friend, the pervert mayor of San Diego; or how happy most Democrats would be to share the stage with the inciter of murder at Freddie´s (Al Sharpton).

I wish those in our party would start telling the RAT infested media whores to stick it where the sun don´t shine. It ain´t like saying that is going to get you any worse treatment.

#11 just curious. Where does Ms. Lindsey live? Does he spend most of his time in the swamp that is Boomtown? If he does not reside in the state, as he should, perhaps that will be newsworthy.

I´d really like to see him lose his seat. He has done so much damage crossing the aisle to the dark side of politics.

There are other challengers in the primary besides Mace.

Did you watch the video, the faux interview? It´s vile. Mace knew and approved, she was the co-owner and I doubt the business had more than a handful of employees. She should slink away.

Look for the usual suspects to tear down any and all challengers to all RINOs.
Interesting to see how Liz Cheney´s candidacy has already had some positive effects. Term limits, People, term limits!

The ad was not vile, it was stupid, reminding me of the wisdom and wit of 14 year old boys. I then looked up the FITSNews site. I am really unimpressed with FITSNews.

What about the other candidates against Graham? Wonder what the Dems/estab Republicans will post against them? Strange how the Graham/McCain Republicans suit the Dems so well. Must have a lot in common. I notice posters who smear and deride conservatives never defend McCain or Graham. They use smears and sneaky attacks to go after anyone who speaks out against McGraham. Not once do any Republicans side with conservatives who challenge McGraham. Never. We know that the most constant attacks against conservatives come from establishment Republicans who support McCain and Graham. No one has any illusions about what is at the bottom of the attacks. Do I like Mace? I do not know. But typically, the RNC talking points are being spread by posters who seem to be either on the payroll or have some connection with the RNC/DNC.

Ad was disgraceful.
My question stands: what will the Republican attacks be against anyone other than Mace who challenges McGraham?
Guess I will wait and watch.
However, I would like for several SC residents to help us understand why Graham has so much backing in the state. It can´t be that voters think he is a good representative of their beliefs. Must be a case of follow the money/power/influence peddling.
Wish we could see some articles detailing where Graham gets his money. Who is donating? Must his opponents be the only ones who must defend their record or their past?
Find the facts that show how Graham stays ahead in campaign donations.

This is not a "Republican attack" against Nancy Mace, as I understand it. The piece is from a Charleston, SC, newspaper highlighting Nancy Mace´s background. Is there a lie in the article? When anyone steps forward to run for office, it is a given that there will be a critique of what the person´s record indicates and what the person stands for or against. Ms. Mace´s FITSNews went after a conservative Republican woman, Nikki Haley in a particularly vicious manner. Mace can stand behind it, she can condemn it, but she has to address it. I assume Senator Graham´s supporters or critics can speak for themselves.

Posters who think I am supporting Mace are not reading my words objectively. I am not asking those who condemn Mace to defend their condemnation I am asking those who support McGRaham to defend their support...plus I am posing the idea that no matter who the Republican is against McGraham..Republicans will attack them. Why are no Charleston news paper attacks on Graham? Simple. He is a Dem. Again I ask. Why do you support McCain and Graham, posters? Mace is not someone I know so am not defending. I am asking for attacks on Graham by media and Republicans in SC. Texas and Mississippi pros or cons do not matter in the end. It is SC voters I want to hear from. Who are Graham´s supporters?

I really want Lindsey gone - however we don´t want to repeat the mistake of Missouri and select the weakest possible GOP candidate to go against the Dem in the fall. Please, no more Akins. Admittedly, I don´t think, in SC, the Dem could win against any GOP selection but you never know. There are at least three challengers to SC´s current used-car salesman of a Senator. Go with the best - whoever that may be.

What Obamacare Means for Your Taxes

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

Funny question in the headline, yes?

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

United States Senate candidate and state senator Joni Ernst has cited her National Guard duty to rebuff criticism for missing more than half of the votes in the Iowa Senate this year. In a WHO-TV interview posted on April 7, the Red Oak Republican acknowledged that National Guard service wasn’t the only reason she’s missed votes, but she said that only “a few of those votes were due to other activities.” However, a review by The Gazette shows very little overlap between Iowa Senate votes and her National Guard service. Ernst is in a field of six candidates vying to win the Republican

Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

People who live in some of the remotest areas of the country have electricity for the first time ever. Sixty-three homes in the LeChee community of the Navajo Nation, located just south of Page, Arizona, either have already been or will soon be given electricity as part of an ongoing project to bring power to the area. According to the AP, an estimated 15,000 homes in Navajo Nation don´t have electricity. Some prefer it this way, while others live so far away from power stations or each other that it would be "too expensive" to connect them to the grid. Expensive

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday.
