Republican Senator Lindsey Graham claimed that he was working to convince President Trump to back off of his plan to withdraw U.S military forces from Syria when speaking to the press outside of the White House today.
Graham is known for instinctual and consistent support for American military intervention in the Middle East and across the world, having been a firm supporter of disastrous American engagements in Iraq and Libya.
President Trump met with Graham today and seemed to have assuaged his concerns about an exit of military personnel from Syria. Graham claimed that what the President had told him “made him feel a lot better” about U.S involvement in the endless civil war, which Graham has reliably and predictably supported continuing in an even greater fashion.

The South Carolina Senator had expressed his displeasure when President Trump announced that he was bringing home American troops from Syria. An existential divide seems to exist between the proponents of Graham’s ‘invade the world, invite the world’ national security strategy and President Donald Trump’s core of American nationalist supporters, who support bringing American forces home from drawn-out and dangerous conflicts without a direct national security interest of the United States.
Hearing that Graham’s ultra-hawkish policy preferences traditionally associated with the Republican establishment are being catered doesn’t come as a good sign for non-interventionists and America First proponents.
Graham even went on to claim that Trump was “slowing down” Syria withdrawal, making it easier for career bureaucrats and globalists within government agencies to sabotage the widely popular initiative to bring American forces back home.
However, after the meeting, Graham spoke of the need for congressional Republicans to hold firm in a government funding bill to deliver on funding for a border wall.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
