INDEPENDENT CONSERVATIVE VOICE OF THE PALMETTO STATE
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.

Ben Carson Advising Trump to “Tone it Down” PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 30 March 2016 00:00

“I’ve had Talks About Being Presidential, About Toning It Down a Bit, Appealing to a Broader Group of People”

Retired neurosurgeon and former Republican presidential candidate  Dr. Ben Carson says he is a good influence on Donald Trump, the candidate he has endorsed. “You did notice that he wasn’t nearly as caustic in the last debate. People appreciated that. It’s a matter of cultivating and capitalizing on that,” said Carson in a recent Carson News release.

Some observers were surprised that Dr. Carson endorsed Trump rather than Senator Ted Cruz. In many respects Carson and Trump are alike. In reality, both Carson and Trump are outspoken and fearless. Carson is quiet and diplomatic and Trump is  the opposite.

The Ultimate Outsider PDF Print E-mail

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has described Senator Ted Cruz as the “ultimate outsider” and the ideal candidate to win the Republican nomination for President of the United States in 2016. All establishment candidates have been defeated badly by outsiders Cruz and Trump, both of which are despised by establishment Republican Party leaders. That is why the endorsement of Sen. Cruz by Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and other insiders has raised eyebrows and caused concern for many Cruz supporters who fear their candidate is being used and will ultimately be abused and abandoned when he has served the establishment’s purpose.

Senator Cruz has earned a reputation for opposing the establishment Republicans in the Senate on virtually everything they proposed. His most vicious critic was South Carolina’s senior senator Lindsey Graham who recently endorsed him. Graham apparently hates Trump more than he hates Cruz.

By Terry M. Thacker

As the old saying goes, there is a first time for everything. Admittedly, sight-seeing trips are best done in spring, summer or fall, when the temperatures are more favorable for being out and about. But who goes sight-seeing in the dead of winter? I do, t'would seem.

Back in December I was watching a program on North Carolina public television describing a one-of-a-kind, on-going art exhibition featuring the works of M. C. Escher that was being held at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh. A passing thought flitted through my brain that it would be nice to see that exhibition. The thought quickly passed but, several days later, it returned and hung around a little while longer.

The Remaking of Marco Rubio PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 02 March 2016 00:00

The RNC and Establishment Republicans, with the aid of the liberal media, including FOX News are remaking Marco Rubio; the U. S. Senate’s Gang of Eight Amnesty bill author. Rubio is now the leader of the Demolition crew charged with the mission of destroying fellow candidate Daniel Trump by whatever means mendacious minds can devise.

Historian and former County Republican Party Chairman Mike Scruggs asks: “How does Marco Rubio get away with it? How in the world can he claim to be a conservative? How can the GOP establishment claim he is the new Reagan?”

As Republicans try to make sense of Donald Trump’s huge victory in the South Carolina primary, the big news is the shellacking of Jeb Bush in a state that voted four times for a George Bush for president. Trump defeated Jeb by the overwhelming margin of 4-to-1 (33% to 8%).

When Jeb suspended his presidential campaign following his humiliating rebuke by South Carolina’s Republican voters, it was more than just a personal disappointment. It marked the end of the Bush family’s 25-year campaign to remake public education according to federal standards.

Opponent of Women in Combat Believes Decisions should be made by Congress

Just before Christmas  the Obama Administration decided to require women to serve in all combat arms positions. The Army and Marine Corps resisted the decision until it was decided. Now they are charged with implementation. Any commander who is less than enthusiastic about implementation is looking at the end of his career in an unpleasant manner. Last week the chiefs of the Army and Marine Corps testifying before Congress said it is now time for women to register for selective service. This means that civilian women could find themselves in a national emergency lugging a heavy load of ammo and equipment crawling around in the mud engaged in the deadly game of life or death, depending on the strength and determination of the opponent.

By the time this issue reaches readers, the New Hampshire Primary will be history and the remaining active presidential candidates will be pouring into South Carolina. Reportedly South Carolina has been labeled the “Stop Trump State.” The reported polls show Donald Trump out front. Establishment Republicans seem to be split over Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. It is expected that their PAC s will be attacking both Trump and Cruz. Both Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum have dropped out of the race. Santorum has endorsed fellow Roman Catholic Marco Rubio. It is likely that Huckabee will endorse either Trump or Cruz, unless he remains neutral a while longer.

On the eve of the Iowa caucuses, where the first ballots for the next president are cast, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who has not endorsed a candidate, gave a round of interviews declaring that 2016 “is the last chance for the American people to take back control of their government.”

“This election is different because we have pell mell erosion of law, the constitutional order, where President Obama has pushed an agenda that eviscerates the immigration legal system, and pushed this trade agreement that will commence decades of transferring American economic power to an ever-expanding international commission. It’s just not going to stop.”
