What a difference a year can make – especially if you’re a state lawmaker.

In unexpectedly resigning his longtime House seat last July after winning the Republican primary, Alan Clemmons, a Myrtle Beach attorney, said in an affidavit to the State Election Commission that he was withdrawing from the general election because he was representing new legal clients who will “require a large investment of my time and focus.”

Clemmons, who was first elected to the House in 2002, officially resigned his House seat on July 17, 2020. As of last Wednesday – slightly more than a year later – he became a candidate for the Horry County master-in-equity judge’s seat, state Judicial Merit Selection Commission (JMSC) records show.

No one is fighting for the rights of those who don't want the vaccine

Strong regimes are a lot like strong people. They’re self-confident. Because they are, they’re rational and moderate. They can afford to be those things. They have unquestioned legitimacy. Admitting honest mistakes doesn’t threaten them. Why would it? They can tell the truth without fear. Strong regimes are marked by cheerfulness and an open-minded spirit. You know them when you see them.  They’re easy to recognize. 

Weakness has the opposite effect. Weak leaders live in terror. They lie constantly. They admit nothing. They rule by force because they have no choice. They have lost their legitimacy. When they begin to lose control, as they inevitably do, they panic. Unable to acknowledge the magnitude of their failure, they retreat into delusion. Their behavior becomes irrational. They start to issue bizarre commands.

This week, the House is advancing a deeply partisan and radically liberal spending bill, H.R. 4502. Republicans correctly coined this bill as “Pelosi’s Bloatedbus!” H.R. 4502 appropriates funding for federal agencies under Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Agriculture, Rural Development, Energy and Water Development, Financial Services and General Government, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Housing.

Here are a few of the bill’s more radical top liners:

  • Removes various pro-life riders like the Hyde Amendment, the Weldon Amendment, and the Mexico City Policy (just to name a few).

Every once in a while, the Biden administration likes to pretend that it's listening to reason. Don't buy it. That's the message from conservatives, who are trying to keep parents from falling for the White House's line that it's backing away from critical race theory in the classroom. That's the impression Education Secretary Miguel Cardona was going for when he said that the department made an "error" promoting a radical group's CRT theories. Some people cheered, thinking the White House had finally seen the light. But if it sounds too good to be true, experts warn, that's because it is.

US Flag Pledge of Allegiance

The following words were spoken by the late Red Skelton on his television program as he related the story of his teacher. Mr. Laswell felt his students had come to think of the Pledge of Allegiance as merely something to recite in class each day. So, one morning he told them, “I’ve been listening to you boys and girls recite the Pledge of allegiance all semester and it seems as though it is becoming monotonous to you. If I may, may I recite it and try to explain to you the meaning of each word?”
