Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis has created a mess. If reports in the Greenville News are true, he has disgraced his office, Greenville County, the Republican Party and his family. In the view of many county citizens, he does not have the moral or ethical character to serve as the top law enforcement officer in the County. Lewis has stated that he will not resign, and the Governor will not remove him from office unless he is charged with a crime. SLED is currently conducting an investigation and members of the County Council are asking for an audit of the Sheriff’s Office.

Tragically the United States Government is on the verge of a constitutional crisis. Complicating the matter is the possibility that the investigative agencies of the government that would normally be able to solve the problems, may have themselves become politicized.

There are seemingly valid allegations that the Obama Administration intentionally released classified information pertaining to individuals working in the Trump campaign. The Democrats and their friends in the media are attempting to confuse the facts by making other allegations

Without any facts to support their claim, Democrats and liberal factions of the media claim that Republicans worked with Russians to disrupt the presidential aspirations of Hillary Clinton.

Since the Presidential Election, most media attention has been  focused on the national scene. I have been guilty of the same diversion. The excitement has been and continues to be at the national level with a new President very different than anything we have experienced in our lifetimes. It is an exciting time for conservatives and a frightening time for Communists, Muslims and advocates of the One-World Government.

Senator John McCain, who plays the role of a conservative to get reelected, told an international audience last week that President Trump is going about destroying 70 years of work done toward building a World Government. The aging former POW was on the verge of revealing his true world-view.

Democrats, RINOs (Republicans in name only), and media pundits are attempting to convince the American people that the Trump White House staff and cabinet offices are in chaos.   There is no evidence to support the claim; however, it is repeated by virtually every news outlet regardless of whether there is anything or not to substantiate the claim.

President Trump stated that those who supported Hillary for President can’t allow themselves to acknowledge that they lost the election. Trump has begun calling them the enemies of the American people. The media is making a big deal out of that, however it is a true statement,

Many of them are enemies of the Constitution that the President and all other government officials, including those in uniform, are sworn to protect. Their subversive activities have been ignored in the past, but can be ignored no more. Their threat to the survival of the Republic is too serious.

Greenville County Square, the seat of county government  offices, formerly University Ridge, the one-time campus of Furman University, is located on the most desirable piece of real estate in the city of Greenville. For more than a decade Mayor Knox White and favored developers have attempted to design ways to acquire the property for development. The County Administrator has long been an advocate for such a plan.

Commercial development of the property would greatly increase the tax base of the city and provide lucrative business deals for local insider business interests.

Greenville County has announced that they will accept proposals for redevelopment of the County property in the near future. The use of “proposals” for procurement purposes is a legal, but unethical method of selecting contractors to receive County contracts. Using this method, it is possible that the County Administrator and other individuals may have already decided on a contractor and a plan, and will go through the procedures to create the illusion of appropriateness for the public.

The origin and history of Clemson University is closely intertwined with the history of South Carolina and the nation, encompassing the good, the bad, and the ugly. That is the nature of true history; an accurate record of the way it was, not the way we wish it had been, Unfortunately, over the past four to five decades, staff or faculty or both of the University have attempted to “tailor” the history of the University to harmonize with politically correct positions of times and situations. Historical references to slavery or the Confederacy have been removed. Mention of black employees of the earlier days of the college have been minimized, and traditions of the school and its corps of cadets have been banned from the campus. The college marching band has been banned from playing Dixie and the cadet corps are no longer allowed to display historical images including former state flags.
