Maryland, My Maryland!

Following the bombardment and surrender of Fort Sumter at Charleston on April 9, 1861, Lincoln ordered Governors of the remaining Union states to call up their state militias and supply an army of 75,000 to invade and subdue the seven Southern states that had seceded. While this was received enthusiastically in many Northern States, the Border States viewed this order as a tyranny they would not follow. Consequently, the border states of Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Arkansas seceded and secession efforts were underway in Missouri and Kentucky. The order was likewise not well received in Maryland.

Terror of Ebola PDF Print E-mail

What would strike more terror in your heart, exposure to the deadly Ebola virus, or a crazed Islamic radical with a knife at your throat? You could rationalize that the knife of the radical would result in swift death and the virus would result in long agonizing suffering with a chance for survival. The frightening truth is that any American could face either situation. Both situations would create intense fear and terror in the victim and potential victims. The goal of terrorists is the spread of terror. It is not known whether terrorists are using Ebola as a weapon, but they could easily do so.

President Promises Amnesty to Illegal Aliens Who Join Military PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 01 October 2014 00:00

New Policy will Allow up to 1,500 Illegal Aliens to Join Military and Become Citizens this Year

As many as 1,500 undocumented immigrants (illegal aliens) will be given amnesty in exchange for joining the United States military due to an executive amnesty order announced by President Obama Thursday, September 25, according to reports by usatoday.com and Numbers USA.

President Obama had promised to offer amnesty to an unspecified number of individuals who had entered the United States illegally by the end of summer, however, he delayed the action until after the election for obvious political reasons. Democrat congressional candidates in tightly contested races were afraid the action would result in their defeat at the polls.

By delaying blanket amnesty for undocumented individuals who have entered the country illegally until after the election, Democrats apparently believe voters are too stupid, uninformed or misinformed to hold them accountable at the polls based on what is to come.

The Last Free Election in the USA? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 01 October 2014 00:00

The 2014 General Election is just four weeks away. It is probably the most important Congressional election in our lifetime – and it could be the last free election unless American voters wake-up, become informed, seek truth and take their country back by electing candidates with high moral and ethical standards and insisting that they live up to their oath of office and execute their duties in accordance with the Constitution of the United States.

Politicians, even good ones, and political parties cannot solve the problems of this country and world. They have made too much of a mess out of it already. If our republic is to survive the current situation, individuals must become informed, armed with truth and actively involved in seeking  divine intervention.

Greenville Tax Hike is Another Dead End to Fixing Our Road Woes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Joshua Cook - Travelers Rest, SC   
Wednesday, 01 October 2014 00:00

After canvassing Greenville County residents last week, one thing is for certain: No one wants, or can afford, to pay more taxes.

One senior Greenville County resident told me that he already struggles to pay for his new heart medication and that being on a fixed income means either buying less or going without his medication. A tax increase on top of that would cause serious harm to his already strapped bottom line.

But it could happen. If passed, the tax hike will raise $673,193,630 in sales tax revenue over 8 years. According to County Councilman Willis Meadow, it will cost an average family about $300 per year.

Harrell Indictments Open Door to Changing SC Government PDF Print E-mail

“Next Speaker Must Clean House.” - Ashley Landess, President, SC Policy Council

Ashley-Landess-1Ashley Landess came to Greenville Friday to thank the RINO Hunt faithful for their support of South Carolina Policy Council efforts to ensure that ethics charges against the House Speaker were not dismissed by judges who owe their appointment to Speaker Bobby Harrell and his colleagues.

Landess said the work of removing corruption from South Carolina government has only just begun.

Candidates to replace Harrell as speaker “must promise to get rid of all Harrell appointees,” Landess said. “We need all House members to feel the pressure,” she concluded.

One of the examples of alleged abuses is the appointment by Harrell of his brother to serve on the Judicial Merit Selection Board that screens judge candidates. Only candidates approved by the board may be considered by the Legislature.

Three top Contenders from Midlands and Low-country

Former South Carolina Speaker of the House of Representatives, Bobby Harrell, who suspended himself both as Speaker and as a member of the House due to indictment on multiple ethics charges, is an unlikely candidate to replace himself as Speaker.

Ashley Landess, president of the South Carolina Policy Council, and a key participant in exposing ethics violations that led to ethics charges against Harrell, listed three House leaders she believes are contenders to replace Harrell as Speaker. The position is believed by many to be the most powerful position in  S.C. Government. Landess was guest speaker at the RINO Hunt meeting Friday night in Greenville.

James Howle ‘Jay” Lucas, current Speaker Pro Tempore, is the current acting Speaker and a likely front runner for Speaker.

The Battle for National Sovereignty PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 24 September 2014 00:00

According to recent Washington Post/ABC, Rasmussen, and IBD/TIPP polls, President Obama’s weakest policy vulnerability is immigration. Americans have never favored illegal immigration,  amnesty,  or bringing in so many immigrant workers that it hurt American wages and job prospects, but the leadership of both parties have suppressed full discussion of  immigration issues for at least two decades. This has worked out well for the Democrats. In fact, it is a major part of the reason Barack Obama is President. Illegal immigration has been a major problem since 1965, but it accelerated after the 1986 amnesty, and especially after Republican President George W. Bush embraced the idea in 2001 that amnesty would convert Hispanic and Asian illegal immigrants into “natural Republicans.” A little homework on immigration issues would have prevented what the American public now believes are two of our biggest problems: illegal immigration and too much legal immigration. But most politicians don’t like homework. They like big campaign donations and acclaim by the liberal press. So Congress passes momentous legislative disasters without even reading them, much less thinking a couple steps ahead about their consequences. However, good government and sound immigration policy require honest homework and principled dedication to the best interests of all Americans.

Gowdy Opening Statement at Benghazi Select Committee Hearing 1 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Press Release   
Wednesday, 24 September 2014 00:00

Gowdy: A little over two years ago, four Americans were killed serving our country in Benghazi, Libya.  Two were killed when a facility emblematic of our country was set on fire.  Two were killed because they dared to fight back and defend themselves and others.   Sean Smith, Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty represented us.  They represented our country and our values.  We sent them to do that.  They were killed in an attack rooted in the animus some people hold toward us, simply because we are us.

To the family, friends, and loved ones of those killed, we can never adequately express our condolences and gratitude. As you have helped us understand, the four killed were more than just pictures on a TV screen.  They were sons, husbands, fathers, brothers, and friends.  And they were our fellow Americans.

ISIS vs ISIL: What is the Difference? PDF Print E-mail

The-Levant---1

You no doubt see a “red flag” when President Barack Hussein Obama states emphatically that members of the Islamic States of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), who routinely behead individuals who refuse to convert to Islam, are not Islamic.

You may have noticed, also, that Obama and his spokesmen in the State and Defense Departments and elsewhere do not use the term ISIS. They routinely change the name of the organization and talk about the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) without making a distinction or giving an explanation. Why would they so blatantly do such a thing?

By doing a little research, I found that “the geographical term ‘Levant’ refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. If you look at a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant,” you will see Israel.

Multiculturalism Is a Failure PDF Print E-mail
Written by Walter Williams   
Wednesday, 24 September 2014 00:00

German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that in Germany, multiculturalism has "utterly failed." Both Australia's ex-prime minister John Howard and Spain's ex-prime minister Jose Maria Aznar reached the same conclusion about multiculturalism in their countries. British Prime Minister David Cameron has warned that multiculturalism is fostering extremist ideology and directly contributing to homegrown Islamic terrorism. UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage said the United Kingdom's push for multiculturalism has not united Britons but pushed them apart. It has allowed for Islam to emerge despite Britain's Judeo-Christian culture. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said the roots of violent Islamism are not "superficial but deep" and can be found "in the extremist minority that now, in every European city, preach hatred of the West and our way of life."

Physicians have a proud heritage. We can boast Dr. Benjamin Rush, a founding father, signer of the Declaration of Independence, Surgeon General of the Continental Army, and opponent of slavery. And Dr. James Derham, born a slave in 1762, who grew a successful practice that included freeman and slaves.

We have modern-day sources of pride in Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, a world expert in the care of viral hemorrhagic fevers, Dr. Abrahim Borbor, and Dr. Sahr Rogers. All three died while fighting to save the lives of patients with Ebola Virus Disease.

“We have several thousands in the pipeline and that number will continue to go up.”

In February, the State Department eased the rules to protect the U. S. from accepting refugees with potential ties to terrorist organizations. The rules were seen as “too strict” by the Obama Administration.

WND and Front Page Politics reported Monday that on September 4, a U. S. State Department spokesman “hinted that a new wave of refugees will soon be coming from another  predominantly Muslim nation – Syria.”

The U. N. High Commissioner on Refugees is referring Syrian refugees to the United States. “We have several thousand in the pipeline, and that number will continue to go up,” he said.

Radio talk show host Lisa Benson spent September 11, 2014, in Greenville, South Carolina. Benson is concerned that radical Islamic factions are establishing a prominent presence in the Bible Belt and the local residents don’t even know it.

The day concluded with a Tribute to September 11 Victims, First Responders and Veterans at the Zen, sponsored by the Greenville Tea Party.

Bubbling with energy behind a strong personality,  Lisa Benson is one of few radio voices warning the American people about the immediate dangers within our borders from Islamic terrorists.
