The Armistias was signed and World War I ended on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month one hundred years ago Sunday. It was said to be the war to end all wars. It certainly did not accomplish that goal.

A group of citizens are raising funds to build a World War I memorial. They are saying no memorial was ever built to honor those who fought, and thousands died in that war. That is not true. I visited the World War I Memorial several years ago and photographed the deplorable condition it had been allowed to become due to neglect and lack of care and maintenance.

Our nation is at war with itself. We pretend that our political competition is between Republicans and Democrats, however, it is not that simple. It is a battle that is as old as the world itself. It is a battle between good and evil that began in the Garden of Eden. 

The advocates of evil are intentionally confusing the English language and calling evil good and good evil. Government schools are no longer teaching factual history; therefore, the younger generation of Americans do not know facts of history or have appreciation for the sacrifices their ancestors made for them.

Finally, the transition from print to digital newspaper is complete, and the downscale of office space is virtually complete. The new office address is: The Times Examiner, 1 Chick Springs Road, Suite 110-B, Greenville, S.C. 29609.

This has been a major adjustment after 25 years of virtually the same routine every week. We resisted the elimination of the printed paper as long as we could. The expense eventually became more than we could handle without going into debt or getting financial help from friends.

A case can be made that Democrats are willing to risk civil war in order to gain power sufficient to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump. In many localities they are reportedly registering aliens, prisoners and out of state students to vote. Virtually no one is following up to determine who is voting in more than one location. If violations are discovered, the illegal votes are being counted and not changed. If detection of fraud does not change the election results, what is the motivation to discover and report the violation?

All of the screeching, screaming women in the Senate chambers last Saturday was the result of what Democrats refer to as democracy. Many misinformed and uninformed Republicans mistakenly refer to our form of government as a “democracy.”

The founders created a republican form of government rather than a democracy for many reasons. Theoretically, a democracy requires the full participation of the masses of the people in the legislative or decision-making processes of government. This has never worked. The Greeks tried to use democratic mass participation in the government of their city-states, and each time it ended in tyranny.

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.
