Socialist Democrats in control of the Democrat Party are determined to take over the government of the United States even if it means destruction of the constitution and the republic. We have about six weeks to stop the takeover. The November congressional election is our last chance to stop the illegal takeover by whatever means they choose.

The so-called Democrats are willing to lie, falsely accuse innocent people and destroy anyone who is affiliated with President Trump by whatever means they can contrive. Their latest caper is to destroy Trpump’s Supreme Court nominee by accusing him of molesting a girl when he was in high school. It was more than 30 years ago when he was a teenager if it happened at all. This should not be a consideration at this time when considering his qualifications for the court.

As I watched portions of the five-day funeral of Senator John McCain, it reminded me of the exceptional characters I have known. One Army officer would make McCain look like an amateur prankster. He was a US Military Academy Graduate and a Lieutenant Colonel when I served in his organization in Bremerhaven, Germany in 1957-58.

Ltd. Fred Smaltz was a combat veteran who participated in the Normandy Invasion of WW II. Smaltz was a striking figure, well over 6- feet tall, shaved head and an unruly mustache. His wife Gail was a tall, red headed nurse.

I was an early supporter of Senator John McCain for president of the United States. John was a "military Brat." Both his father and grandfather retired as four-star admirals. I first met John at Tommy's Country Ham House in Greenville during his first campaign for president. We had a very brief conversation about his father. I informed him that I was assigned to his father's CINCPAC staff during the Vietnam War era, when his father was Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Command. He commented that not a day passed that he did not think about his father. His mother is still living and is more than 100 years of age.

I have studied the life of Wade Hampton III for much of the past two decades. In my view, in many respects, Wade Hampton III was one of the greatest citizens ever produced by the Palmetto State. Until recently, I had never heard of his “Iron Scouts.”

A good friend invited me to hear a presentation by the author of a book titled “Wade Hampton’s Iron Scouts.” at the Poinsett Club.

Michael Thomas is a native South Carolinian, Citadel Graduate and historian, who has spent a great deal of time researching military historic records and writing this very interesting original historical story.
