The Koran, Sira, and Hadiths - Part 1

Islam is a total worldview, and Islamic Law is a legal system encompassing every aspect of Muslim life—religion, politics, government, war, criminal and civil law, business, family, food, dress, social, culture, absolutely everything. Although criticism of Islam or Islamic Law can invoke the death penalty, there are many secularized or purely cultural Muslims who are not fully compliant with Islamic doctrines and Islamic laws.  But according to a 2008 survey reported by Ingrid Carlqvist with Dispatch International (Sweden) in 2015, 66 percent of European Muslims want to be under Sharia Law rather than Europeans laws.

Merger of Trump & Cruz Supporters Could Save GOP and America PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 20 April 2016 00:00

A merger of Trump and Cruz political campaigns is not likely, but could capture the Republican Party for Conservatives and create a real contrast between Democrats and Republicans for the first time in modern History. The two camps control 70 to 80 percent of the Republican electorate.

There is much in common between the true Conservatives in both camps. However, there is little chance that the two campaigns will be allowed to get together at the convention in Cleveland. Such a merger would be very detrimental to the party elite that hold the power at the top and the RINOs (Republicans in name only) that hold the power at the county and state level in many cases.

Neither candidate is perfect, however both Trump and Cruz have a lot to offer in terms of returning the nation to a constitutional republic based on laws rooted in morality. Both candidates are very intelligent and the best at what they do.

Feminists Can’t Get Over Clarence Thomas PDF Print E-mail
Written by Phyllis Schlafly   
Wednesday, 20 April 2016 00:00

Most people would get over  defeat that occurred nearly 25 years ago, but feminists hold grudges forever. They continue to rage against Justice Clarence Thomas’s routing of them at his 1991 confirmation hearings, where he beat liberals at their own game, surviving a media ambush that would have destroyed any mere mortal.

A new movie called “Confirmation” tells the story of the Clarence Thomas Senate hearings from a distorted liberal perspective. Senator Alan Simpson, a key participant in the hearings, described the movie as “seriously distorted” based on his review of the script, and former White House lawyer Mark Paoletta said “it’s a dishonest film. … It’s a propaganda piece for Anita Hill and for Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House.”

Hampton Massacre Family Monument Rededicated PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 13 April 2016 00:00

The Monument in Memory of the Great Grandparents of South Carolina Governor and Confederate General Wade Hampton III, Massacred by Indians in 1776 is located on Wade Hampton Blvd. East of Greer

Hampton-0

On a warm July day in 1776, while Wade Hampton I and three younger brothers were tracking game far from their log home on the Tyger River, south of the Middle Indian Path (now Highway 11), a renegade band of Cherokees attacked and killed their parents, a newborn grandson and burned their home.

A stone memorial to Anthony Hampton, his wife and other family members is located on the southside of Wade Hampton Boulevard, in Spartanburg County, between Greer and Lyman. The Stonewall Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) erected the memorial in 1933. That UDC chapter is no longer active.

Fifteen Painful Years on the Wrong Course

In August 2001, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) published a report by Karen Kaufmann and James G. Gimpel, entitled “Republican Efforts to Attract Latino Voters: Impossible Dream or Distant Reality?” This study found that Hispanic voters in U.S. elections favored the Democrat Party by more than two-to-one because of long-standing traditional loyalties and strong Hispanic preferences for generous big government welfare and healthcare policies. Moreover, it showed little change in this Democrat Party preference with time in the U.S. or over generations. Nor did economic success substantially change the preference of higher income Hispanic households for the Democrat Party. This should have been sobering news for the G.W. Bush Administration, which continued to formulate its immigration policies based on anecdotal myths rather than statistical reality. The Bush policy of expanded legal immigration and negligible internal and workplace enforcement against illegal immigrants earned no Hispanic respect, resulted in a doubling of illegal immigration, hurt American workers and taxpayers, and accelerated the growth of a strong Democrat voting bloc that threatens eventual Democrat dominance in national elections. Pew Research found in 2013 that 69 percent of Hispanics favored Obamacare, and 71 percent voted for Obama.

Greenville County School District Brings Change in Grading Scale in all Middle Schools by Fall of 2016 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tina Sayward   
Wednesday, 13 April 2016 00:00

The grading scale for schools ordinarily goes from zero to one hundred, with zero being the lowest grade you could score on any assignment. Back when most of us were in middle school, if we didn’t do an assignment or if we got every question wrong on a quiz, we earned a zero. That one zero would drag down our entire average and we would have to struggle to bring it back up just to pass, or drown ourselves in extra credit just praying that it would be enough. The Greenville County School District wants to change that. By establishing a policy with a grading floor of a 61, the lowest grade a student can receive on any assignment or test would be a 61. It is still an F, though falling in the upper range. Even with the grading floor, students would still have to make up the work they failed so that they will learn the required material. According to Derek Lewis, the District 24 representative of the Greenville County School Board, the policy isn’t exactly new. The Board approved the grading scale in 2007. “[It] was designed to allow ample opportunity for a teacher to award a student an F for failing to master a skill, but still provide the student and parents with some opportunities to bring that grade up.”

Nikki Haley: Another Disappointment PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 13 April 2016 00:00

Governor Nikki Haley has been a disappointment to many citizens who worked hard for her election. She is the most recent in a series of South Carolina Governors who have been able to trick voters into supporting a mythical candidate who was much different from the real person.

Haley replaced Gov. Mark Sanford who was one of our better governors, but had a problem keeping his zipper zipped.

David Beasley was a young Democrat who became a “Christian” and won the Governor’s office as a Christian Republican. Beasley had a great personality but lost a bid for a second term by trying to please both his old liberal friends and his new Conservative supporters. Governor Beasley, like Haley, was considered ideal as a vice presidential candidate. He announced that he favored removal of the Confederate battle flag from the capitol dome. This pleased the liberal media and enhanced his national political potential. He lost credibility when in an effort to calm his Conservative Christian political base, Governor Beasley announced that God woke him up in the middle of the night and told him to take the flag down. Beasley instantly became a one-term governor and South Carolina suffered through 4-years of a Democrat Governor.

50th Anniversary of Vietnam War PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 06 April 2016 00:00

This year marks the official 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. Most Americans will never know and others have no factual knowledge of the war that cost thousands of American lives over a period spanning more than a decade.

Any truthful historical assessment of the Vietnam War including that of Communist leaders has concluded that the war was won by the United States military with assistance of allies. They also concluded that the victory was forfeited and lost by the United States Congress and the liberal media. Politicians were influenced by the Communist sympathizers operating on college campuses and Communist sympathizers inside the government as well as influential voices in the media.
