There is little or no doubt in my mind that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is a squishy RINO (Republican In Name Only) whose propensity for aisle-hopping and furthering the progressive communist democrat agenda mirrors that of his mentor, the late Senator John McCain.

For a time, I wondered if Graham was being covertly coerced over the subject of his ambiguous sexuality? For a time, I thought he was a progressive communist democrat in disguise.

Now, according to Graham’s own explanation, it is far worse than I thought.

Lindsey Graham breaks with most Republican colleagues by supporting Biden judicial nominees

The South Carolina senator has voted in favor of nearly all of Biden's judicial picks

With Democrats controlling the Senate, it comes as no surprise that President Biden has successfully nominated dozens of federal judges, but nearly all of those picks enjoyed the support of a high-profile Republican: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Graham, who until January was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, voted in favor of all but three of Biden’s picks who have gone before the full Senate for votes. In two of those cases he did not vote at all, and he voted no in just one.

In a political environment that has become highly polarized – particularly when it comes to presidential nominations – Graham’s approach to judicial nominations harkens back to earlier times when judges were approved based on qualifications instead of ideologies. 

[OCS: It is a demonstrable fact that evil individuals can be wellborn, highly educated, well-experienced, extremely successful AND STILL BE EVIL or promoting an EVIL ideology.]

"When the president wins the White House, they have the right to pick the judges of their choosing," a member of Graham's office told Fox News, stating that the senator "believes the constitutional and historical standards are what should be used for judges."

The Republican Graham voted to confirm both Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, even though "he did not agree with them," they added. "Only in the most unusual circumstances should you vote against a nominee."

Graham recalled how Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose death resulted in the vacancy filled by Barrett, was confirmed by a vote of 96-3. Despite already having a reputation as a liberal "icon," Graham recalled that "just about every Republican voted for her. Similarly, he noted that the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia received even more votes.

The Senate ultimately confirmed Barrett with a vote of 52-48.

"I don’t know what happened between then and now," Graham said at Barrett’s hearing, admitting that "we can all take some blame."

"But I just want to remind everybody," he continued, "that there was a time in this country where someone like Ruth Bader Ginsburg was seen by almost everybody as qualified for the position of being on the Supreme Court, understanding that she would have a different philosophy than many of the Republicans who voted for her."

[OCS: Graham’s fundamental lack of understanding of the Senate’s Advice and Consent role is surprising given he is a former JAG lawyer.

One can be “well qualified,” but supportive of an ideology that pursues an un-American, un-Constitutional agenda that foresees the radical transformation of America or the destruction of our Constitution.

To this extent, supporting the nomination of these candidates is tantamount to abandoning your Oath of Office to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.”]

Graham is not the only Republican to support nearly every judicial selection. Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski have also voted in favor of almost everyone.<Source>

Bottom line…

Like progressive communist democrats, Lindsey Graham cannot be trusted with the safety and security of the United States. He should be stripped of all committee assignments and consigned to a small office in the basement.

To the extent that Lindsey Graham and other Republicans do not recognize that the fundamental nature of the Democrat Party has changed and that it is infiltrated with socialists, communists, and crazies, is not to recognize that our nation is facing a clear and present danger from within. And if good and righteous men and women do not stand up now, our nation is doomed.

We are so screwed.
