Graham: ‘You’re Not a Republican and You’re Not a Patriot’ if You’re Celebrating Trump Victory

by Pam Key | Breitbart
January 9, 2017

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said any Republican celebrating Russia’s hacking into the 2016 presidential election were “making a huge mistake” and described them as a “political hack.”

Graham said, “To my Republican friends who are gleeful, you’re making a huge mistake. When when Wikileaks released information during the Bush years about the Iraq War that was embarrassing to the administration, that put our troops at risk most Democrats condemned it, some celebrated it. Most Republicans are condemning what Russia did and to those who are gleeful it you’re a political hack. You’re not a Republican and you’re not a patriot.”

    How did you get re-elected. You are not a Republican or a Patriot you are a RINO. Get off your high horse and either go with what the country has voted for or resign. Good riddance.

    It’s time AMERICANS DEMAND to suspend the 2016 elections and their results and declare martial law until we can hold a new fair and open national election. AMERICANS must now call upon President OBAMA to use his authority to save America’s DEMOCRACY and the COUNTRY.

    Graham you are a “Swamp cause'” all you ae concerned about is keeping the big donors in place and the swamp as nasty as it has been in years. Hopefully Trump can clean it out and maybe if we work extra hard we can get term limits in place sooner than later !

  • Howard Share says:

    Lindsey Graham is a Sore Loser and it’s a shame he’s still in the US Senate. Instead of Supporting Donald Trump he plays in the hands of the Democrats and tries to hinder Trump. I certainly hope the Voters kick this asshole out of the Senate and Vote for a Real Republican who will support Donald Trump and Change. I think Lindsey was born as a Girl and was called Lynn until she had the Sex Change, but I don’t know if it took? Lynn and John Sidney McCain should Both be put out to Pasture as they are Both Worthless Assholes. They should form a club with Jeb Bush and call themselves the 3 Assholes.

  • cae973 says:

    When will the people wake up and vote this ass out of office..he is unfit for his job and does not represent us, the voters!

  • Gail Soldato says:

    Mr. Graham. You sit back on your seat and ridicule fellow Republicans because they don’t think the way you do. I don’t know who released the information to Wiki Leaks and neither do you. Yet, you stand on your soap box and cut down others when you have no more information than the American people. Your Sir should not be a Republican, you certainly don’t sound like one. If Killary’s Cartel starts the riot’s they are planning for 01/19/2017 against Donald’s Legal Election voted on by the American People. You know those WE THE PEOPLE voters. Where will You Be? Not with the Republicans. We don’t like COWARDS.

  • Bob in Florida says:

    Lindsey Graham is one of the poster boys for term limits!

    He is exactly why we need term limits. I thought he might be primaried in his last election; but, like many of the progressive minded establishment Republicans he must be in a district that is liberal enough not to be disgusted by his representation.

    These districts will always be a fact of political life. There will always be districts that have sufficient population that, while claiming to be Republican, still are liberal enough to vote in candidates like Graham. Since we won’t likely be able to get him voted out, it will be necessary to have term limits to send him back to the real world and put someone else in office.

  • missy janie47 says:

    I believe he was speaking about the Russian cyber activity. Not the fact that Trump won.
    None the less let me take this opportunity to ask SC to get rid of him and put a real conservative in his place.

  • msmotown says:

    I am so sick of this idiot. I wish that he and McCain would skip off into the sunset together. They are both traitors to the Republicans. McCain’s even goes deeper. Wow! There’s a well-documented story about him as a POW. What a sellout. I am tired of both their faces along with skeletal Pelosi and dried up Reid! Ugh!

  • maxx says:

    Graham should have been kicked out of (R) party years ago since he loves the demoNazis and continually shows it. South Carolina conservatives should be ashamed of themselves for allowing him to continue even if many democRats do vote for him in every election. They need to act like conservatives and get rid of this traitor. .

  • David Islay says:

    1. The fact that the Russians could hack the DNC and others computers is a telling note to our “security” — 2. the stuff released is not denied and it is in most cases proving the corruption and carelessness of the Democrats. 3. Lindsay Graham and John McCain on too many occasions kissed the self annointed royal ass of obama to the detriment of the republicans and to our country. So don’t lecture me about supporting Trump. I did not –until he WON the republican nomination — fair and square; and then the Presidency — same way. I will now support him and will not sell out to the Democrats. If he can get you clowns in Congress to do your damned jobs, honor your oaths and this country, more accolades from me. Trump has already shown more patriotism in the short time since the election than obama has in 8 years.

  • Paul Kalmanek says:

    I have never been a Republican nor do I care to be. I am a conservative thou and you better be nice to us who voted for trump because we might start a new party and leave you out. Lincoln, if he were alive today, I think that he would concur.

    1. mesaman says:

      Your opinion, and your prognostication, is of no more value than your navel lint.

  • snowyriver says:

    Hmmm. Lets look at our Constitution. Reading (now consider yourself a patriot that just overcame a tyrannical government) You come to article 1, section 8, clause, paragraph 10. Congress shall have the power to define and punish offences against The Law of Nations.. Maybe we better read The Law of Nations to see just what power our new Congress has.. So we read The Law of Nations. Pay special attention in book 1, chapter 19, article 212.. After we finish The Law of Nations, we go back to reading the Constitution. Coming to article III, section 1, paragraph 4, we read that no person except a “natural born Citizen” of the United States shall be eligible for the office of president. Didn’t we read what a “natural born Citizen” was in The Law of Nations? Yes — “born on the land with parents as citizens”.. Note parents and citizens are both plural. Here we have a problem, Obama has produced a birth certificate showing born in Hawaii with a father who was a citizen of Kenya.. Oh sorry that birth certificate has been proven to be false, but there is another birth certificate in the British archives filed there by Kenya showing Obama born in Kenya with a father who was a citizen of Kenya. Now does it sound like Barack Obama is a “natural born Citizen” of the United States? If the answer is no then he is not eligible to be president of the United States, and everything he has done, every rule of law he has signed are NULL and VOID.

    1. Peatro Giorgio says:

      Except you left out chapter nine in the Law of nations! This chapter covers the exceptions clause. Where as a child born at seas or on land of another nation but born to 2 citizen parents but the father is deceased the child then by birth right is conveyed natural born citizen status of said mother. If your going to use the law of nations you must use it in its entirety,

      1. snowyriver says:

        Yes Obama’s father was never a citizen of the United States and that alone makes Obama not eligible. Oh if you read the laws, Obama’s mother was not old enough to convey American citizenship to this child. He is NOT and has never been a citizen of the United States, his being a Senator was against our Constitution also.

        1. Peatro Giorgio says:

          Agre with your first part .However you are wrong as to the age of obama’s mother at the time of his birth 18 years old considered then as it is now as & adult. No she could not buy a firearm, no she could not order or purchase alcohol. But she was significantly old enough to not require her parents permission to marry and old enough to form a legal binding contract.

          1. snowyriver says:

            You are right she was only 18, the rules for a mother to convey citizenship are she has to be a citizen five years a citizen after the age of 15.

          2. Peatro Giorgio says:

            Why would you say( ONLY 18 ) For over 2 centuries and longer in our nations 16, 17,18 year old women were marrying ,having children Raising families. Women at 18 are by & large far more mentally mature , more then capable of making adult decisions at those ages.Then are 99.9% of men. Least wise up & through the 50-s & 60’s then we began to see a regression in both males & females in reaching mental maturity.

          3. snowyriver says:

            I don’t write or make the rules of law.. I just know that as Americans we are supposed to follow all of them. I have seen the rule and know that the Mrs Obama Sr. was not old enough to convey citizenship.

          4. Peatro Giorgio says:

            So you say ! I request you post the link directing us to the chapter & verse sub titles, sub codes, sub texts or the written text with in the Laws of nations. Or for that matter, to any location with in our US constitution or our nations immigration & naturalization laws that states one must a have been 15 – 18 or older and having resided with in Us borders, for a period of at least five years prior to & in-order to convey on to their child natural born status. Post the link please. Now mind you : I am the one who had confronted you with chapter 9’s exceptions clause written in the laws of nations. That might tend to make one believed I have studied this subject for a tad bit.

          5. snowyriver says:

            I don’t have time to all of your requests.. However.. Our Constitution – Article 1, Section 8, Clause 10 tells you to read the Law of Nations. In the Law of Nations, Book 1 , Chapter 19, article 212, tells exactly what our founding fathers meant when they put the clause “natural born Citizen” in our Constitution. Obama is NOT a natural born citizen of any country, especially the United States. Thus NOT eligible for the office of president.. He is an usurper or a post turtle whichever.
            Obama’s mother could never pass to Obama “natural born Citizenship”.
            The second half of your request is gibberish, you have no idea what you are saying and have changed what I said completely.. Bye Bye expect no more correspondence from me.

      2. mrpoohead says:

        Have you learnt nothing Peatro – one parent gives you citizenship which is why I have two passports. Moron, still huh?

        1. Peatro Giorgio says:

          Clearly your more deeply troubled, then had I previously believed. Now Moron having saw fit for to intervene where you were not asked to follow . Lets set the record straight! ” Moron ” The discussion I was enjoying wirh snowy river stemed around the Law of Nations moron. And in said law of nations there is a requirement that a childs parents must both be indigenous. With but one exception . That exception, Moron is when a Child is born to two indigenous parents but that child’s father dies whether at sea or in another land . Then That child’s mothers is able to convey natural born status. MORON. Go away moron This is the what the thousandth time I shot down your arrogant ignorance.

          1. mrpoohead says:

            Do you actual know what the “Law Of Nations” is? Doubtful. Actually from your comments very obviously not!

            No switch from visa to passports – I have, had and still qualify for two passports by birth. Not unusual.

            You have not won one argument, because you are as thick as a brick. Our prove me otherwise and I’ll donate 10,000 dollars to a charity of your choice. Good luck!


          2. Peatro Giorgio says:

            Hey Moron !The Laws of nations was written well over 300 years ago In the language of French.In the French Language there was no word For naturalized Therefore The french use the term Indigenous.
            As for Visa’s You may have deleted from your end, But
            your comment section is still highly visible from my end. Go back to the very beginning our introductory comments” Liar Moron “.
            ( I Quote you I have two Visa’s One Of the US and One from my parents an My home land ) MORON.
            Kicking your dumb ass at each turn of events Moron.

          3. mrpoohead says:

            Fail! Why would someone with a passport need a visa for that country. Only in the stupid world of Peatro?

            Wrong, published in 1758, not well over 300 years ago. “Indigenous” is not a French word, it is English – duh!

            “Law of Nations” is not law, nor does it have any legal remit, so any point you are trying to make with it is irrelevant.

            Still no bottom kicking Peatro, despite your claim of thousands. Funny as though!

            Alzheimer’s perhaps?

          4. Peatro Giorgio says:

            Moron Apprantley You do not speak French .Try this on for size moron Les peuples indigenes . Which is the correct spelling in French Moron.Again Moron No Frech word for naturalized as I specifically stated .”Moron.” As for laws of Nations it was written over 300 years ago as I agaun stated Moron .Published in 1758 Moron Written ,verses published ; to entirely different matters.” Moron ” Kicked your dumb ass again Moron.

          5. mrpoohead says:

            Which proves my point – you said “indigenous” was French, it is not. “Indigenes” is – duh!

            Emer de Vattel wrote it – he was born in 1714. Doubt he scripted it in 1716 to make it over 300 years ago.

            Please try again!

          6. Peatro Giorgio says:

            Which proves my Point you claimed no such french word. (Indigenous English spelling for the exact same word in French spelled indigenes),same word same meaning spelled slightly different in french Moron. Nice try kicked your ass again dam are you easy

          7. mrpoohead says:

            Indigenous – English
            Indigenes – French

            You said “indigenous” was French, it is not!

            You also said there was no French word for “naturalised” – wrong. Naturalise’.

            Before you consider any more moronic comments on this subject I ought to point out that my wife is fluent and my eleven years olds French is better than your English – though that doesn’t say much considering your general bastardisation of that language.

            Still no butt kicking Peatro – you’re still top of the list of dummy’s in my book.

          8. mrpoohead says:

            “Indigenous” obviously you do not know its meaning.

            What is “natural born?” Killers?

          9. mrpoohead says:

            Nothing huh.

    2. mrpoohead says:

      In-correct – citizenship is acquired by virtue of nationality of mother, thus he can claim dual-citizenship, I myself am entitled to both an American and a British passport by virtue of parentage. Don’t think Hawaiian certificate proved false – just speculated on. seems like a lot of effort when he is American by descent. You are a fool, but not as big a one as Peatro.

    What does the fellow know about patriotism? Everything I read that he says is not only dumb but something a Democrat would say? How did he even get elected as a Republican? I have to wonder about the collective IQs of the voters of South Carolina.

  • James in Texas says:

    If I were to ever think that any Republicans would take advice from you, at that moment I will begin to think that our Nation has sunken into something that I just don’t understand! As for you, try and grow-up a “pair” and change Parties as most of us have always known that you can not spell Republican or Conservative! Hey, hear that dog-whistle, that’s your Daddy, Mr. McCain, calling………..

  • William R. Sullens says:

    It would be interesting to see what we would find if Graham’s emails were hacked and brought to light to the public. He would probably have a lot of back peddling to do for quite a long time, even after he is defeated in his next bid for re-election.

  • Dennis says:

    You are a RINO and hopefully will be either voted out of office for being half democrat and half republican and have been in your position for too long of a time. You supported Obama on just about every issue and I think YOU are a traitor to your country. You liberals are disgusting!

  • William R. Sullens says:

    What would Graham know about being a Republican, much less a Patriot? He is all about Graham and not what is best for the United States of America. He would be out on his rear end if he were running for office now. He is a sore LOSER and can’t stand the fact he has no say so in the upcoming administration. Time for him to get on board or get out of the way. One thing that America hates is a sore loser and he is nothing but a sore loser.

  • Jimmie Cooper Boswell says:

    the usa that does the same thing, with their cyber intelligence agencies has no right to criticize other nations for doing the same thing.
    why i do not believe that russian cyber intelligence was not involved in revealing the emails. is the same reason the chinese, french, german, usa cyber agencies do not reveal what they are monitoring. the same reason the homeland security did not want you to know, they were hacking all of your emails.
    cyber intelligence, wants complacency in your being unaware of being monitored. they, do not want you to become aware your being monitored. and take steps to fix breaches in computer security. cyber intelligence, does not want to give to you a trail to follow. they, might use someone else’s cyber gatherings to expose you but not their own.
    and there, was no hacking of hillary’s emails by the Romanian computer user who chanced upon clinton’s server. and forwarded an untold number, of them to wickileaks.

  • cunning says:

    He is still living in his Obama bubble. Trump has done more for the American people than Obama did in 8 years ,and he is not in office yet? Graham must be feeling the pull of the swamp drain, he knows he is all done.

  • bones1941 says:

    Sen. Lindsey Graham your coming up for election and I hope the people kick your ass out of office .There is still is no prove of hacking .

  • mort_f says:

    While there is no reason to celebrate any ALLEGED Russian involvement in our election process, there is no reason to castigate it either. At worst it was doing what our incompetent media refused to do. The result of the email flap
    was the DNC being ‘hoisted on their own petard’.

    This entire flap does not even hold a candle to US actions in Israel, Libya, Egypt, Grenada, Nicaragua, Cuba, Chile, etc. as actions of one country interfering with another country’s processes. Need one go back to the Bible, and Caleb?

    Like the rain, all the climate control will never stop it. If you do not want to get wet, then have good roof, and stay indoors. And if you really fear the rain, build an ark, and hope to find a Mt. Ararat when the rain stops.

  • Doris Will says:

    Where was Senator Graham when we lost in 2004, then lost again in 2008? Now we finally find someone who could finally bring home a Republican Presidential victory, and Graham can’t miss an opportunity to mouth his petty opinions of the man who finally got us over the finish line. He is the best argument we have for term limits I have ever seen. now go back to your seat, sit down and shut up and let the adults take over.

  • Webb says:

    Graham has a Problem with these stats…
    When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the Republican Party will have:
    1) The Presidency.
    2) A majority of the House of Representatives.
    3) A majority of the Senate.
    4) Almost two-thirds of all the governors.
    5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.
    6) And, in the near future, Republicans will be able to add a majority of the Supreme Court.
    The above has never happened before in American history.

  • PBHayes says:

    Graham is so woefully unsuitable for any position of public trust its embarrassing. The Russians and numerous other countries have gained access to our information for as long as we have been storing it both hard copies and electronic. Our nations government has done practically nothing to prevent these losses and Graham and many others have been there as part of that nothing. Phony people like Graham, McCain, McConnell, Schumer, Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein and so many others should have been run out of office a long time ago. If Trump is as smart as he seems he will take action to finally secure our national informational assets. If he isn’t then the hacks and leaks will continue unabated.

  • justinwachin says:

    I think Russia’s involvement is still in question. According to Wikileaks they did not get their information from Russia.

    As pointed out elsewhere, the United States has done the same thing. President Obama played a role in Israel’s election and in the Brexit vote. If memory serves me correct, the position he advocated lost in each election. It seem’s there is a double standard for us. We seem to think it is okay to meddle in other countries’ elections but then we get upset when other countries meddle in our elections. Maybe we should mind our own business and demand the same from other countries.
