Compatriots, your efforts (Teddy Bears for Deputies) have helped show the Sons of Confederate Veterans, especially Camp 36, in a positive manner. Master Deputy Natalie Hill of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office picked up the plush animals from the Museum and Library of Confederate History on Thursday, July 31, 2014.

Commander Doug Langley and Lieutenant Commander Rollis Smith made the donation on behalf of the Camp with Museum Director Michael Couch taking photographs of the occasion held in the Annex Building. Master Deputy Hill was very excited to see the numbers we collected, and hopes we will do this again in the future.

Greenville County GOP Executive Committee Discussed Support of RINOS and their Opponents

Groover---Fox-Smith_Page-03The Greenville County Republican Party Executive Committee spent most of their Monday evening August meeting time discussing rules governing county and precinct officers and the requirement that they refrain from openly supporting opponents of the party nominee in the General Election.

A planned resolution to wave a rule that would allow Executive Committeemen to support a petition candidate challenging United States Senator Lindsey Graham was never presented to the committee for consideration.

The rules state that a party officer forfeits his office if he supports an opponent of the party candidate.

The only motion that made it to the floor was one regarding the primary winner and Republican Party nominee for Superintendent of  Education.

Illegals Bringing Diseases to Upstate PDF Print E-mail

Official and unofficial reports indicate that hundreds of illegals will be transported to South Carolina between August 9 and October 20. Some 200 ranging from age7 to 20 will reportedly be sent to Greenville directly from the border with Mexico. Another 150 will reportedly be arriving in the Southern Greenville County town of Simpsonville during the same time period.

Obviously we  don’t know who or what to believe, however, we know that our Southern border is open and people from every part of the world, both adults and children are pouring in by the thousands. It is quite apparent that the leftist radicals in control of the Democrat Party are orchestrating this massive invasion of our country from inside the Obama Administration.

Ebola. Chikungunya. Dengue. Norovirus. Hantavirus. Swine flu. Varicella. Variola. The names sound like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. Yet, threats to Americans are real, and escalating by the week. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported on August 1 that serious diseases are spreading at detention centers for Illegal border crossers. Health care workers and Border Patrol agents, plus their children, have tested positive for tuberculosis (TB), swine flu, chicken pox, lice and scabies. Instead of being quarantined, illegal border crossers are being dispersed rapidly across the U.S., with those of school age being registered in public schools opening soon for all.

They appeared in Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, Grand Ole Opry and the Grand Ole Gospel Reunion. They are Gospel Music Hall of Fame members and are included in the Smithsonian Institution’s classic American recordings. The group left the road after the death of Roy Carter in 1997.

General James Amos, Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, has been loyal to the current Commander-in-Chief. Troops have been gritting their teeth and asking why their fearless leaders are allowing Barack Obama to literally destroy their beloved service branch during wartime.

Remaining silent in the midst of a storm ended for General Amos recently while speaking to the liberal Brookings Institute think tank. During that address, the 4-star general who is set to retire in the fall, openly and publicly criticized Barack Husein Obama.

During an interview on Fox News, Lt. Col. Ollie North commended the Commandant for his courage. Reporters expressed surprise that a senior officer would dare question White House and Pentagon policy.

The 2014 Sons of Confederate Veterans National Reunion was held in North Charleston, South Carolina, July 17-19.  Wednesday night, prior to the start of the Reunion, I was invited to a drop-in to celebrate the return of the Star of the West ship’s bell to Charleston.  This was quite an honor and the highlight of the week for me.  I also had the privilege of ringing the bell.

The bell was displayed at the Reunion, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  It will be on exhibit at the Citadel for six months.  If you are in Charleston and have time, I suggest a visit to see it.

Lincoln’s Economic Legacies PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Scruggs   
Wednesday, 30 July 2014 00:00

This series is based on the author’s presentation of a paper to the Stephen D. Lee Institute in Savannah, Georgia, in February 2012.

In December 2010, Allen Guelzo, Professor of Civil War Era History at Gettysburg College published an article in National Review entitled “Mr. Lincoln’s Economics Primer,” Quoting Lincoln’s law partner William Herndon, he asserted that Lincoln liked to study political economy. Quoting his fellow Springfield, Illinois lawyer, Shelby Cullom, he asserted that Lincoln was great on political economy. Although Herndon once wrote that Lincoln seldom finished an entire book, Cullom gave him credit for voraciously digesting and assimilating directly or indirectly the works of classical economists like Adam Smith and David Ricardo. He also mentioned John Stuart Mill, Mathew Carey, John Ramsay McCulloch, Francis Wayland, and Henry Carey.

While President Obama is plowing ahead with his ruthless plans to "radically transform America,” Globalists are accelerating implementation of a “One World Government.” Most Americans are not paying attention and are oblivious to the scheme that has been public for more than a decade but has been denied by elected officials and most of the news media, including FOX News.

On June 18, 2014, in London, Retired General and former CIA Director David Petraeus proclaimed that the United States of America is set to be merged into the continental regime being erected under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The New American reported that during the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty, “the ex-commander of U. S. Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq essentially celebrated the end of U. S. independence – and by extension, the demise of the Constitution.”

Deliverance from Addiction for young Men 17 to 25


Addiction is a serious problem in Upstate South Carolina and throughout our society. Many lives are destroyed by addiction to alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription drugs, to name a few. Addiction takes its toll on families and taxpayers. It is virtually impossible for an addict to become free from addiction on his own.

A proven solution is available to all who seek it; however, most pursue popular, politically correct avenues of treatment  without lasting success.

There are many drug treatment programs. Some substitute legal substances for the illegal drugs. Some use various psychological techniques. Any one of these programs may provide temporary relief, or an illusion of relief, but the individual remains an addict with a craving for the drug.

How would you like to fight off giant spiders? How about eating lizards, rats and grub worms? Or perhaps be lowered from a helicopter into the arms of naked cannibals? Want more? How about staring down the business end of a rifle, encountering witch doctors and pulling teeth with pliers?

Margaret Stringer, a missionary for fifty years, forty of which were spent in the jungles of Papua, Indonesia, experienced all these things and more.

This past Saturday, Stringer's home church, Freedom Baptist, which is located in the Berea section of Greenville, held a special service in honor of her five decades of dedicated service unto the Lord. About 200 people were in attendance to help her celebrate her big day. Family members from as far away as Arizona came for the event.

Stop Playing Church! PDF Print E-mail

My cousin Bud Moon is a retired pharmaceutical salesman turned part-time comedian. Bud tells some mostly true stories from his youth after his family moved from the bright lights of the Lyman suburbs to a peaceful neighborhood in the Dark Corner. The stories Bud tells to sophisticated banquet goers are much better than paid comedy writers can dream up for big bucks. Several of the stories involve a group of bored neighborhood kids playing church. One of his best involved a couple of youngsters attempting to baptize a cat during a pretend church service.  If you know cats, use your imagination to determine the rest of the Bud Moon story.

In 2014 there are indications that a lot of adults are playing church. They are not yet baptizing cats, at least I don’t think so, but they are reportedly doing some things just as nonproductive and foolish. I’ll spare us the pain of dealing with a list of the games people play and call it church.

Common Core Standard Initiative is copyrighted ... so it is ILLEGAL to "tweak" them ... but yet our EOC is asking through a survey how we should change them???

A group of Southern Heritage organizations have launched a project to clean up and restore the historical monument located on Wade Hampton Boulevard, East of Greer, dedicated to the memory of the ancestors of Wade Hampton III, who was probably the greatest South Carolinian who ever lived. The project is being led by the members of Camp 36, 16th South Carolina Volunteers, Sons of Confederate Veterans, along with the Hampton Lee 1281 and Hunley 2667 Chapters of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

In July, 1776, the year the United States declared independence from Great Britain, Anthony Hampton, who had established a homestead on the banks of the Middle Tyger River, in Spartanburg County east of what is now Greer, South Carolina, along with his wife, son Preston and young grandson were massacred by Cherokee Indians. The surviving son Wade, age 24 at the time was away from the home hunting and returned to find his family dead and their home burned.

Is the United States in Decline? PDF Print E-mail

A growing number of Americans believe our constitutional republic is in decline. Students of factual history know that our blessed nation is making some of the same mistakes that led to the fall of the Roman Empire and the enslavement of ancient Israel.

Dr. Ben Carson and his wife Candy published a book in 2012 titled, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made this Nation Great. The book is an excellent read and a factual brief review of United States History.

Carson, who recently became famous as the only American with the courage to challenge the current President of the United States in person before a ballroom full of people on national television, has now become a potential president candidate.

Cloward-Piven Right Before Our Eyes PDF Print E-mail

The Cloward-Piven Strategy of over-loading the many stages of the welfare system is happening right before our eyes. The Strategy is readily apparent in the flooding of our southem borders with the illegal immigration, and acceptance, of kids (of all ages (!), considered, ‘refugees’) from Central America. Apparently, President Obama’s Administration has riot police that can be sent to Bundy Ranch, Nevada,.and Murrieta, California, but not additional forces to send to protect and secure the border.

Common Core Becomes a Nightmare PDF Print E-mail

Americans are waking up to how bad Common Core really is for education, but its nightmare does not go away quickly. Liberal education bureaucrats (“educrats”) are now trying to enforce Common Core through the courts, with one lawsuit already filed in Oklahoma, and another likely in Louisiana.

In both states the governors tried to get rid of Common Core, but parents are shocked that it may return by court order as unelected educrats claim they have more power than the state legislature and the governor combined. The Oklahoma legislature approved a law to repeal Common Core and the governor signed it, but now its state board of education has filed a lawsuit to bring it back.
