Taxpayers Funding 140 Islamist Charter Schools in USA PDF Print E-mail

Turkish Islamist Accused of Implementing a “Secret Plan for Bringing Shariah Law to America.”

WND.com reported Monday that one of Turkey’s most influential spiritual leaders lives in exile in the United States and operates 140 charter schools in 26 states. The director of the charter schools and the Islamic movement directs operations from a guarded compound in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Muhammad Fethullah Gulen reportedly heads the schools as part of a plan for bringing Shariah law to America. The Gulen charter schools take in tens of millions of U. S. taxpayer dollars each year. Some of that money may be used to influence elected politicians.

Gulen and his organization have been the subject of investigations into alleged corruption scandals involving influence peddling.

Wednesday, 20 January 2016 00:00

The movie 13 Hours began showing in theaters in Greenville and across the country last Friday. The movie is based on the book 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi. This very accurate movie is recommended for anyone who would like to know the truth about the attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans that was mishandled by the Obama Administration and has resulted in investigations to this day. American Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Department Communications Officer Sean Smith, former Navy SEALs Tyrone “Rone” Woods and Glen “Bub” Doherty died while fighting off a terrorist attack and pleading for help from their government that never arrived because it was never sent.

Last July, Anthony Hervey, an outspoken black advocate for the Confederate flag, was killed in a car crash. Arlene Barnum, a surviving passenger in the vehicle, told authorities and the media that they had been forced off the road by a carload of "angry young black men" after Hervey, while wearing his Confederate kepi, stopped at a convenience store en route to his home in Oxford, Mississippi. His death was in no small part caused by the gross level of ignorance, organized deceit and anger about the War of 1861. Much of the ignorance stems from the fact that most Americans believe the war was initiated to free slaves, when in truth, freeing slaves was little more than an afterthought. I want to lay out a few quotations and ask what you make of them.

If Nikki Haley Can Deliver State To Jeb Bush, She Could be His Vice President

South Carolina has been chosen as the battleground for the Republican establishment’s last ditch effort to stop and if necessary destroy the campaign of Donald Trump.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, the designated  “Darling” of the Republican Party, was chosen to respond to the Obama State of the Union Message and to serve as the “point person” to stop the advancement of the Donald Trump campaign in the Palmetto State.

When Donald Trump, who is leading all other candidates in South Carolina, proposed temporarily barring Muslims from entry into the United States until the government can assure the people that they are not terrorists, Governor Haley publicly announced her opposition to Trump’s candidacy.

We would also like to express public gratitude to several local retailers for their efforts in reducing underage drinking and tobacco use in Travelers Rest.  As a member agency of the Greenville County Alcohol Enforcement Team, the TRPD sent an undercover operative into several retail establishments on December 17, 2015 to attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages.  To sell to this person would have been a violation of law as this person is underage.   We are happy to report that twelve businesses out of thirteen checked the operative’s ID and refused to complete the sale.  These businesses are Molinas, Walmart, CVS, Sidewall Pizza,  Swamp Rabbit Brewery, Copperhead Mountain Distillery, Shortfields, Blue Ridge Bar and Grill, Willis ABC, Spinx, Bi-Lo, and Pizza House.

Is Tolerating Sexual Assault PC Now?

On January 1, a Police Department spokesman in Cologne, Germany, told CNN that as many as a quarter of 90 criminal incidents that took place during the New Year’s Eve celebration were sexual assaults on German women. More than 1,000 men, described as Arab or North African in appearance were involved in the attacks, which took place at the city’s central railway station. Similar gang attacks were reported in Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart. Dusseldorf, and Munich. Police in Sweden and Finland are investigating similar gang attacks on the same day.

Violating the Constitution of the U.S. PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 13 January 2016 00:00

Since the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, the States have allowed the Federal Government to assume powers reserved to the states by the Constitution of the United States. President Lincoln by an act of war seized powers prohibited by the Constitution. The state legislatures have routinely allowed the federal government to take over responsibilities clearly reserved for the states such as the public education of children.

Both the Democrat and Republican Parties have delegated more legislative powers to the President and to the courts. We now have courts making law and overriding laws voted on by the people and passed by their elected lawmakers. For the past seven years, President Obama has created laws by Executive Order and has selectively enforced those Congressionally passed laws and refused to enforce those laws that do not enhance his agenda. With one year to go in his second and final term, Obama is threatening to take drastic actions in defiance of Congress and the American people.

Scratch a Liberal and You Will Find a Fascist Underneath PDF Print E-mail
Written by David Thompson   
Wednesday, 13 January 2016 00:00

There are some astonishing things happening in America as we speak, not least important of them is the fact that the minority is having its way with the majority. Obama’s actions are and should be a concern and the fact is, the majority of Americans do not agree with POTUS. And the question of how that could happen is answered by the progressives having adopted Obama’s “Chicago style.” That means shut down the opposition by whatever means necessary. The truth is that under the false pretense of being liberal, the progressives have exposed their true nature…they are fascist at heart.

What liberals can’t stand is being called out, having their nonsense confronted by facts. Liberals operate on one level only, a purely emotional consciousness. Really, all kidding aside, liberals live a facts-free existence. What issue would you like to discuss, for example, “global warming?”

Opponents see abuse of power, Ignoring  Second Amendment

President Obama announced unilateral plans to work around Congress and expand background checks to cover more guns sold at gun shows, online and anywhere else.

The devil is in the details:

regulations and procedures developed and issued by agencies. The Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and  Explosives will be one of the agencies issuing updated guidance that says the government should deem anyone “in the business of selling guns to be a dealer,” regardless of where the gun or guns are sold.

The Greenville County Republican Women’s Club honored three deceased members during a recent luncheon at the Poinsett Club.

Club members lit a candle and made a short presentation honoring each of the ladies.

Past club president Geri Warren lit the candle and discussed the life of Mary Earl Drawdy. Mrs. Warren described Mary Drawdy as a “strong Southern lady” whose entire family has been important to the Greenville County Republican Women’s Club since its beginning in 1956. Mary was a 10th generation Earle, one of Greenville’s pioneer families. She was a descendant of Col. Elias Earle, who served in both the South Carolina House and Senate and the United States Congress.

Gallant Soldier, Noble Patriot, True Christian

January 19 will mark the 209th anniversary of the birth of Robert E. Lee in 1807, one of the most respected and revered military leaders in American history. That respect and reverence extends over most of the world wherever military leadership is studied. Lee’s birthday is an official state holiday in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Florida. It was also an official Georgia holiday until this year, when it will become an optional holiday. Other Southern states honor Lee during Confederate Memorial Day (NC, SC, KY, and LA), Lee-Jackson Day (VA), and Decorations Day (TN) during the year. Several states combine the celebration of Lee’s birthday with the birthday of civil rights leader Martin Luther King’s birthday in January.

After a rainy Sunday cut short my sightseeing, the next day was much nicer. My intention on that Monday this past August, during a sightseeing trip to the Charleston area, was to return to Boone Hall Plantation, which I had visited on the rainy Sunday, and take some photos of the famous Avenue of Oaks.

But first I wanted to pay a return visit to a site that I had toured once before, back in 1999 - Fort Moultrie, which is a sub unit of Fort Sumter National Monument. Sumter sits just a mile from Moultrie. The two are strategically situated so as to provide enfilading fire to enemy ships that might attempt to enter Charleston Harbor. Moultrie lies near the end of a peninsula on a piece of land known as Sullivan's Island while Sumter sits upon a man-made island in the harbor.

Challenges of 2016 PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 06 January 2016 00:00

As we enter the New Year, there are many challenges ahead. As we attempt to forecast the future, there are reasons to be optimistic and hopeful. Much of the optimism is based on hopes to reverse some of the attempts of the current administration to “transform” the Constitutional republic created by our Forefathers and reestablish the credibility of a powerful world leader.

Tragically, while President Obama has been busy destroying the institutions and traditions of the American republic and using the armed forces as laboratories for social experimentation, the potential enemies of our nation have been growing in strength and taking advantage of our leadership void on the world stage.
