When I began my work 25 years ago, my vision for fixing our poor, broken communities was driven by my belief in America and what made it successful.

It's what I call the 3 C's: the principles of Christianity, the virtues of capitalism and the rule of law outlined in our Constitution.

After the civil rights movement, big government was deemed necessary to turn poor communities around.

How “White Supremacy” Was Born and Repainted

Charles Sumner
Charles Sumner

The South was as devastated during the Civil war of 1861 to 1865 as much as any nation in the annals of warfare.  By the end of the war, more than 250,000 Confederate soldiers, one out of every four white men, had been killed or died of wounds or disease. In addition, at least 50,000 Southern civilians died.  Over 40 percent of private property including homes, businesses, livestock, and crops had been destroyed. In South Carolina, where Sherman’s men had burned the capitol city of Columbia, over 50 percent of private property was destroyed. Most of this property damage was deliberately inflicted on the civilian population to deny the Confederate Army the logistical means of resistance, but also to demoralize their families and supporters at home.  It was ordered in cold calculation by Northern political and military leadership and often executed with self-righteous religious zeal or criminal abandon.  Neither Christian teachings nor modern Geneva Conventions condone such total war.  Reconstruction was an extension of that total war by political means.

There is a bitter enemy of freedom and constitutional government walking among men today, admittedly one of many.  But he wields an inordinate amount of power and influence among those who believe as he does--- those ultra-wealthy and powerful influencers of governments and C.E.O.’s of large multi-national corporations who meet annually in Davos, Switzerland, but who care little for their citizens or for  free and constitutional government.  His name is Klaus Schwab.  He has lived for most of his life in Switzerland, but he was born in Ravensburg, Germany in 1938, in Hitler’s “Third Reich”, which has been chillingly described by David Icke as, “A police state regime built on fear and violence, on brainwashing and control, on propaganda and lies, on industrialism and eugenics, on dehumanization and ‘disinfection’, on a chilling and grandiose vision of a ‘New Order’ that would last a thousand years.”

The South Carolina State Convention is going to be aDonnybrook! While I do NOT expect, and do NOT condone intimidation, violence,and subversively disturbing the peaceful and orderly flow of discussion anddebate, I can assure you that PATRIOT voices WILL be heard in Columbia at ourState Convention. PATRIOTS are on the move and our voices will NOT be silenced.

If Drew McKissick thinks for one minute that hecan "weaponize" Robert's Rules of Order to control the RepublicanParty State Convention narrative, drown out the voices of conservative PATRIOTS,and tamp down the overwhelming DEVOTION that we have to the principles found inthe Republican Party Platform, he is grossly mistaken and the State Chair of fantasyland.

There’s a place in Georgia that you may not have heard about, and the things happening in America today kinda reminded me about that site, which I visited several years ago. Back then hardly anybody I questioned had heard of the area in Elbert County Georgia, about seven miles north of Elberton on Georgia highway 77. The Georgia Guidestones, as it has been named, is a set of granite slabs rising to a height of near 20 feet. Slabs display a 10 point message espousing the conservation of mankind and future generations in 8 languages, English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian. The capstone has writing on the four edges in four ancient languages, Babylonian cuneiform, Classical Greek, Sanskrit and Egyptian Hieroglyphics. The unit also serves as an astronomical calendar: every day at noon the sun shines through a narrow hole on the structure and illuminates the day’s date on an engraving. In 1980 the stones were finished and put in place. They carry a tablet in front proclaiming, “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason.” I seem to recall that the French revolution was based on reason and you know how that turned out. To this date no one knows who the sponsors were. Guesses have been voiced but I’ll not repeat them. The name shown is R. C. Christian, a known pseudonym. In agreement with the contract all plans were destroyed once the project was completed.

It is indeed rare, if not unprecedented, to see a highly diverse group of organizations such as the conservative Alliance Defending Freedom, the liberal American Civil Liberties Union, the libertarian Cato Institute and the Reason Foundation on the same page as the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund on the same issue.

But it is happening as the U.S. Senate takes up police reform. The issue is a legal doctrine known as qualified immunity.

These diverse organizations all agree that qualified immunity is bad law and should end.

Neo-Marxist Subversion of Christianity

Scott David Allen warns of Counterfeit Social Justice.
Scott David Allen warns of Counterfeit Social Justice.
Last year, 2020, Scott David Allen published an eye-opening and insightful book on the cultural Marxist subversion of Christian churches and institutions and Christian understanding of justice.  Theologian Wayne Grudem called, Why Social Justice Is Not Biblical Justice, a truth-filled “warning about the deeply anti-Christian ideas behind much of the modern ‘social justice’ movement.”

Baptist pastor Tom Ascol, president of Foundation Ministries, wrote that “The modern social justice movement is a Trojan Horse that is being welcomed into many evangelical camps with the kind of fanfare that would make the citizens of Troy blush. Under the pretense of loving one’s neighbor and pursuing justice, ideologies that are contrary to the way of Christ are being employed to set agendas for and shape the consciences of evangelicals. Because biblical words are being used, what the Bible means by those words is assumed and that [false] assumption is wreaking havoc on sound Christian thinking and healthy Christian living.”
