INDEPENDENT CONSERVATIVE VOICE OF THE PALMETTO STATE
Official (Politically Correct) Islam versus the Truth PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Scruggs   
Wednesday, 04 May 2016 00:00

In the last two articles on the  Foundations of Islam, I have pointed out that the violent coercion of Jihad is deeply embedded in its founding doctrinal texts: the Koran, the Hadiths, and the Sira. These are essentially the alleged revelations to Muhammad of Allah’s words in the Koran and of Muhammad’s words and example recorded by his closest companions in the Hadiths and Sira. Sharia Law is also based on this textual trilogy. The only way to judge the true nature of Islam is through the Koran and the words and example of its Prophet, Muhammad. It will not do to call Islam a religion of peace, when 9 percent of the Koran and 31 percent of Islam’s doctrinal trilogy is about Holy War on all non-Muslims, and Muhammad claims that he is called by Allah to make Islam the only religion and that all nations should be subject to Sharia Law. None of the Jihad spoken of in these doctrinal standards is a “spiritual struggle” of prayer and fasting, as is falsely claimed by Muslim Brotherhood propagandists. One of the most shocking incidents of Muhammad’s early leadership is the beheading of 800 Jewish prisoners of war in Medina, because they would not accept the Muslim faith. This ghastly massacre is taught approvingly by Muslim scholars and leaders.  There are 328,000 words in the Islamic trilogy devoted to political violence, almost all against non-Muslims, whereas the Hebrew Bible has only 34,000, and the New Testament has almost none.

KoreanVetSupport-1

The Korean War Veterans Association, Foothills Chapter of SC #301, has contributed to the Greer Daily Bread Ministries STEP project, a veterans and family shelter. The STEP program (Shelter to Empower People) is designed to allow a veteran or a family to progress through a 90 day program that will provide them with the faith, financial knowledge, and life skills needed to exit homelessness, rejoin the workforce, and become productive members of the community. STEP is an arm of the Greer Soup Kitchen, well known in the community since 1991, whose mission is to feed the hungry by providing one hot nutritious meal (not just a sandwich) each day to whomever comes, serving approximately 140 to 150 meals each day. The Soup Kitchen provided over 50,000 meals in the past year.

Destroying the Republic from Within PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 04 May 2016 00:00

As a retired soldier with both enlisted and commissioned service including the Vietnam War, I have serious concerns about the present and future of the Republic for which many of my friends and their families sacrificed and some gave their lives. Therefore, I am extremely interested in who becomes our next President. Those of us who served, and especially those who served in combat, know that the choice of a Commander-in-Chief is a matter of life or death for all those in uniform.

Tragically, unwise decisions by President Obama during his two-terms in office have resulted in the loss of many lives and will cost lives and cause untold suffering far into the future.

I don’t know who, if anyone is advising Donald Trump on national defense, however his teleprompter speech on foreign policy contained a lot of common sense and more than a little sound military strategy.

You never commit American troops to war unless it is clearly in the national interest and there is no acceptable alternative.

Sex, Gender, and Politics: Restore Common Sense and Public Safety PDF Print E-mail
Written by Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.   
Wednesday, 04 May 2016 00:00

Some claim that sexual orientation is a preference, not genetic, and therefore can be changed. However, nothing is more clearly genetic than our biological sex. It is determined by our two “sex” chromosomes, one from each parent. Two X chromosomes determine a biological female, while one X and one Y chromosome determine a biological male. The Y chromosome can only come from the child’s father.

But in the 21st century, “gender” has moved beyond biology, morphing into a new construct that is part socio-cultural, part ideological, and part political: that gender is based on one’s self-perception of being male or female, and is changeable.

Hence we have controversial legislation allowing self-selection of public bathrooms by transgender individuals – or anyone who claims to be transgender.

22 Veterans Walk 22 Miles to Raise Awareness of Vet Suicides PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 27 April 2016 00:00

Few Americans realize that 22 veterans are lost everyday to suicide. These dramatic losses far exceed the current casualties in foreign conflicts.

TwoVets-Landrum-01

Early Friday morning, 22 military veterans departed Landrum in the rain on a 22-mile walk to Greer to raise community awareness of the 22 veterans lost to suicide each day.

The first scheduled rest stop was Gowansville. They reached it ahead of schedule. The second rest stop on highway 14 was Skyland Elementary School where they were greeted by a group of supporters and encouragers from local veterans organizations. They provided water and restroom facilities for the walkers.

Tabatha R. Miller, Veterans Outreach Program Specialist represented the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs at the Skyland rest area. Auxiliary members of several veterans organizations as well as veterans not personally participating in the walk joined her.

Islam: The End of the European Union? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Johan Deckmyn (Brussels, Belgium))   
Friday, 19 February 2016 00:00

Since the Islamist attacks of November 13 in Paris something has fundamentally changed in Europe.  Europeans also now realize that they will never be completely safe from Islamic terrorism.  This is a feeling that the Americans have already known since the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11.

But unlike the US, Europe is for Islamization - much worse.  It is a problem that has already dragged on for several decades.  Beginning in the ‘70s of the last century, the first large-scale economic immigration sought refuge in Europe.  It came mainly from North Africa and Turkey: Islamic countries.  Initially, the intention was that they came to work and then return to their country.

The Changing Scene at Clemson PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 27 April 2016 00:00

The racial strife and week-long demonstrations at Clemson University alleging racism and discrimination, coupled with administrators struggling to find ways to meet demands of small groups of students remind me of the contrast with “Old Clemson College” of the 1950s.

Clemson was created as an all-male military college with a proud heritage to provide educational opportunities for rural children of modest means.  It was an agricultural and mechanical college that in the 1940s and 50s featured mostly agricultural and textile graduates. Clemson provided more commissioned officers for World War II than all the US military academies combined. Freshmen from as far away as New York City were required by their upper classmen to become conversant in the history of Clemson and South Carolina. Discipline was administered to students by students with minimum supervision and guidance from the college administration.

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.”
