Hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham to provide ‘very important update’ on 2016 plans Monday

On Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham sent out an email (twice) asking his supporters to tune into CBS This Morning at 8am where he plans to give an update on his 2016 plans. Instead of “Peace Through Strength,” Graham’s campaign slogan is, “Security Through Strength” that focuses on foreign policy and national security.

“As an announcement draws near, I need to know you stand with me,” Graham said, and linked to a page where people can donate money to his exploratory committee.

So could Graham go from 91 percent sure he’s running, to 99.9 percent, to officially jumping into the presidential race tomorrow?

Though Graham was never a Desert Shield veteran, nor a Desert Storm veteran, nor a Gulf War veteran, according to FitsNews.com, he is one of the biggest war hawks in the U.S. Senate. 

Graham not only praises Democrats like Hillary Clinton as the “most effective secretary of states,” he also votes like them. Last year Graham was censured by 9 Republican county parties for his liberal voting record.

Despite his progressive voting record in a “red state,” he easily won re-election last year.

But recently Graham has been more focused on “trolling” Sen. Rand Paul rather than focusing on his own campaign.

According to Politico, Graham attacked Paul on his defense of civil liberties.

“I’m not going to call a judge,” said Graham. “I’m going to call a drone and kill you.”

Apparently Americans have no constitutional rights or due process according to Graham. Under a Graham presidency, he will be judge and executioner (kind of like Obama).

Graham has stated multiple times that suspected terrorists, whether they are Americans or not should not get due process or a lawyer.

If I’m President of the United States and you’re thinking about joining Al Qaeda or ISIL—anybody thinking about that?—I’m not going to call a judge, I’m going to call a drone, and we will kill you. *laughs*
