Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina launched an exploratory committee for a 2024 presidential campaign on Wednesday, taking a major step toward a Republican primary arena that former President Donald Trump has dominated so far. "This is personal to me," Scott, 57, said in a video announcing the committee. "I will never back down in defense of the conservative values that makes America exceptional. And that's why I'm announcing my exploratory committee for president of the United States." Scott's move toward a White House run puts him on track to collide with fellow South Carolina Republican Nikki Haley, the former governor and United Nations ambassador who launched

I like him and respect him. Think he may a great career ahead of him. But in no way is he qualified to run for president at this time.

Why, we already have a proven America 1st MAGA man? The only President in my adult life who tole you what he was going to do. Told you why he wanted to do it. And then did it despite an entire government refusing to MAGA. I'm sticking with Trump/MAGA. Tim Scott should stick to the Senate and help MAGA.

No, Tim. Did Lindsey tell you to do this foolishness? He also thought he was presidential material, but his pathetic self had to drop out. Why? The same reason you'll have to drop, stupid. What's up with you and Nikki? Or, is it that you need more easy cash? Where's Jim DeMint?

It's all about the money. Candidates get to keep all those bribes disguised as "campaign donations" even if they know they haven't a chance of being elected. They can hire all their family members as "campaign consultants" and pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars. They all do this like for example that evil old crone Maxine Waters who lives in a mansion outside her district and has her daughter on the payroll and that evil hypocrite wealthy communist Bernie "Three Houses" Sanders who has his wife on the payroll The republicans are also just as guilty of thrusting their snouts into campaign donations trough. This scam is just one of the ways all these scum in Congress come in with substantial personal debt and retire as multi-millionaires. Wonder how many of these career politicians would run if they had to return all the campaign donations after an election? Tim Scott is no different and he knows he has not chance in hell of winning but will make millions in campaign bribes by running for president. Don't expect any reform regarding this corruption.

I am involved with local Republican Party here in Charleston County, SC and unfortunately it is heavily populated with RINOS to the point SC is considered by most conservatives as the “Bluest Red state in the USA”. Graham’s strong incumbency ( and war chest) makes him undefeatable and Scott has lot of RINO tendencies. Not withstanding his captive story, he consistently supports McConnell and don’t forget, he endorsed Murkowski!

Good news for the Trump campaign if Scott indeed runs. The more candidates running in 2024 the more likely Trump will be the nominee. In the 2016 primaries Trump rarely received the majority of the votes. He did usually receive the plurality. We don’t know how Trump would do in a two man primary. The more the merrier means Trump will win.

Thank you #12. You explained the reason Scott is running very well. Then even though he will not make it very long, still all the money he gets to throw into keeping himself Senator forever. I too do not understand the collection of untrustworthy odd characters beautiful SC has for top leadership. It seems there is no fight to dislodge them for true MAGA conservatives either.

Supreme Court lifts abortion pill restrictions

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito on Friday temporarily blocked lower court rulings that imposed tighter restrictions on the abortion pill mifepristone. U.S. Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk of the U.S. Northern District of Texas suspended the Food and Drug Administration's approval of mifepristone last week. The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked that part of Kacsmaryk's order and kept the FDA approval in place. But the appeals court temporarily re-imposed tighter restrictions on how mifepristone is used and distributed, which would make it more difficult for women to access the drug. Alito blocked those rulings restricting mifepristone access until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday.

American taxpayers are likely to subsidize billions of dollars in Affordable Care Act benefits for illegal aliens enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program under a plan by President Joe Biden. On Thursday, President Joe Biden announced a plan to open the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, and Medicaid rolls to hundreds of thousands of DACA illegal aliens. While DACA, created by former President Obama through executive action, has helped shield close to a million illegal aliens from deportation through the years, the Migration Policy Institute states that about 600,000 are currently enrolled in the program.

The worst security breach in many years occurred earlier this year, as top secret documents apparently taken from a high-level intelligence briefing were posted on a sort of group chat and went viral from there. Scott wrote about it here. There have been international repercussions, as several foreign governments, including Israel’s, have denied the accuracy of some of the claims made in the briefing. So who was the leaker who had access to this top secret briefing? Apparently it was a 21-year-old Massachusetts Air National Guardsman named Jack Teixeira. So many people–including me–are asking, how in the world did this kid have access to a top-secret intelligence briefing?

But the two men do have one big thing in common: similarly poor approval ratings heading into the start of their reelection bids. Biden has not yet officially announced he’s running again next year, though he has said he plans to. Polls show his approval rating is hovering in the low 40s, right around the mark where some of his predecessors who were denied second terms sat at this point of their presidencies. According to FiveThirtyEight, Biden’s average approval rating stands at 43 percent, about 9 points lower than

Jordan said the lead bill would give current and former presidents the option to change venues. The lead bill is slated to be introduced early next week at the latest.
