Pro-Trump Lawyer Becomes ‘Chaos Candidate’ in South Carolina Race

But there’s a catch…

Published

on

The final few months of the Trump presidency were a spectacle, there is no denying that, but the lasting effects of the MAGA movement’s mania appear to be here to stay.

As then-President Trump vehemently maintained that the 2020 election had been “stolen” from him, a number of lawyers lined up for the chance to help the Commander in Chief prove his case.  There was both the official team and the unofficial team; the former being made up of Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani, and the latter being the loosely affiliated duo of Sidney Powell and Lin Wood.

Now, one of those unofficial attorneys is looking to remain in the spotlight.

Lin Wood played a starring role in Georgia’s GOP civil war after the 2020 elections. Now the pro-Trump lawyer is taking his roadshow to South Carolina, where he’s campaigning as a “chaos” candidate to lead the state Republican Party.

Wood, who transformed from a top Atlanta trial lawyer to a leading election conspiracy theorist in November, moved to South Carolina in February. Then the firebrand lawyer shocked the political establishment in one of the GOP’s most important state parties by mounting an unexpectedly strong challenge to the incumbent chairman, Drew McKissick.

But there’s a catch:

The outcome has out-sized implications because of South Carolina’s role in GOP presidential primaries — the state hosts the first primary in the South, and almost always votes for the eventual Republican nominee. It’s emblematic of broader divisions between longtime GOP members and those brought into the Republican fold by Donald Trump, who remains the party’s center of gravity.

Trump himself has endorsed McKissick, which could complicate Wood’s instance that his work in the post-election fracas carries more weight with the MAGA movement than a simple endorsement.

Furthermore, Wood has been a bluntly prolific supporter of the Qanon faction that exists within the larger MAGA movement, hoping to cash those votes in when the time comes.

Trump Drops Brutal Truth Bomb About Biden’s Border ‘Invasion’

BOOM!

Published

on

There is little doubt that the situation on the southern border of the United States is untenable, catastrophic, and simply sad.

The election of Joe Biden had predictably attracted a massive surge of migrants to the border, as a perceived leniency toward immigration reform almost always comes with Democratic administrations.

To make matter worse, Biden’s choice to appoint Vice President Kamala Harris to the position of Border Czar has been an unmitigated mess, with Harris deciding that she’s rather work on climate change, calling it a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

During a raucous Saturday night rally in Georgia, former President Donald Trump absolutely obliterated the Biden border fiasco.

“Joe Biden has thrown the border wide open and our country is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people every single month. Every month we have hundreds of thousands of people coming and we don’t even see the people that are really coming in, and I guarantee you they’re the worst of all. “

And then:

“The world is coming into our country. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. I used to say from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, but now it’s from many countries all over the world including the Middle East. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. We’re having people coming into our country that we do not want.”

Biden has been busy lamenting the tactics used by Border Patrol during this unprecedented surge, and taking some guff from federal law enforcement in the process.

Lindsey Graham Makes Major Statement Regarding Trump’s Potential 2024 Run

We did NOT see that coming!

Lindsey Graham

Donald Trump isn’t always the easiest guy to get along with, politically, but that was kind of the point all along.

You see, Trump was elected in 2016 as a disruptor; as the guy who would arrive in Washington and tear down the walls of political pomp, and instill a sense of urgency back to the White House.  It was never going to be a smooth course to sail, but a great many Americans felt that this turbulence was going to be necessary.

Of course, for those that have been a part of Washington’s political machinations for years weren’t always on-board with Trump’s maneuvering, and plenty of on-again, off-again squabbles did occur.

Senator Lindsey Graham was one of those who butted heads with No. 45 on a semi-regular basis, but it does seem as though he’s coming around to the idea of getting Trump back into the White House.

​Sen. Lindsey Graham told a gathering of Republicans that he hopes former President Donald Trump runs in 2024.

“I don’t think Trump is listening. He might be. I hope President Trump runs again,” Graham (R-SC) said at a leadership conference for Michigan’s Republican Party on Saturday, according to the Detroit News.

The former President does appear to be strongly considering it.

Trump, who has been coy about whether he would throw his hat in the ring, came the closest to acknowledging a run in an interview on Friday.

He was asked by David Brody of Real America’s Voice Network if he could name a reason he wouldn’t.

“Well, I guess a bad call from a doctor or something, right?” Trump replied. “I will say, that happens with people.”

“So things happen, through God, they happen,” Trump added. “But you know, I feel so good, and I hate what’s happening to our country.”

Trump and Graham have quarreled a fair bit over the course of the last few years, with their latest spat having taken place not more than a week ago.
