County Administrator Joe Kernell working deal with city and unnamed developer

During the first Council meeting of 2016, Greenville County Council Chairman Dr. Bob Taylor announced that one of the priority projects for the county during 2016 would be to proceed with plans to construct a new county office building.

Rumors of a deal with a local developer that wants to get control of the choice property occupied by Greenville County offices have been circulating for a couple of years. This, however, is the first official announcement of the project. Unexplained entries in the budget, such as a $2 million entry for a much cheaper crane has been question by citizen watch dog Ed Paxton.

Prison, Pardon, or Presidency for Hillary? PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 27 January 2016 00:00

Hillary Clinton probably has more potential criminal charges pending against her than anyone else in the United States does unless it is a criminal illegal alien. Her reckless handling of highly classified material is unprecedented. Her apparent casual neglect in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya and her brazen lies and denials regarding the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, who died waiting for help that was withheld and never arrived raises serious questions. Someone made the decision to refuse to provide adequate security and withheld help when their lives were in danger. Was it Hillary or the President? Scores of military personnel have served time in prison for simply making mistakes handling classified material, and it is a crime to make false official statements.

The Case for Secession PDF Print E-mail
Written by Kearney Smith - Green Mountain, NC   
Wednesday, 27 January 2016 00:00

Please suppress the alarm you are likely to feel when you hear someone saying that a State or States should be allowed to secede from the United States. That alarm you may feel is a conditioned reflex which was carefully nurtured over several generations by the advocates of a strong central government.

Before 1860 most Americans would not have felt that instant, automatic alarm or revulsion at hearing the word secession. In those days some of the most patriotic Americans not only heard and entertained the term with a tranquil feeling but also considered it the solution of choice if the central government tried to exercise powers not specifically given to it by the Constitution. Of course, there were people still living in 1860 whose fathers and uncles had taken up arms against the British military for the very purpose of seceding from Britain.

Will the Republican Establishment Stand Down? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Phyllis Schlafly   
Wednesday, 27 January 2016 00:00

As Republicans prepare to cast their first presidential ballots in Iowa and New Hampshire, the field remains dominated by “outsider” candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, while Establishment favorites Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Marco Rubio have been unable to advance to the finals. Will the Republican kingmakers and consultants who picked every nominee since Reagan (Bush, Dole, Bush, McCain and Romney) step aside to let the grassroots, also known as the “base,” work its will this year?

After months of waiting for Trump to self-destruct, the Washington-based Republican Establishment has finally found a way to take back control of the party from the outsiders and grassroots. The plan revolves around the newly empowered House Speaker, Paul Ryan, who is openly contemptuous of Trump and has little use for Cruz.

Taxpayers Funding 140 Islamist Charter Schools in USA PDF Print E-mail

Turkish Islamist Accused of Implementing a “Secret Plan for Bringing Shariah Law to America.”

WND.com reported Monday that one of Turkey’s most influential spiritual leaders lives in exile in the United States and operates 140 charter schools in 26 states. The director of the charter schools and the Islamic movement directs operations from a guarded compound in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Muhammad Fethullah Gulen reportedly heads the schools as part of a plan for bringing Shariah law to America. The Gulen charter schools take in tens of millions of U. S. taxpayer dollars each year. Some of that money may be used to influence elected politicians.

Gulen and his organization have been the subject of investigations into alleged corruption scandals involving influence peddling.

Wednesday, 20 January 2016 00:00

The movie 13 Hours began showing in theaters in Greenville and across the country last Friday. The movie is based on the book 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi. This very accurate movie is recommended for anyone who would like to know the truth about the attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans that was mishandled by the Obama Administration and has resulted in investigations to this day. American Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Department Communications Officer Sean Smith, former Navy SEALs Tyrone “Rone” Woods and Glen “Bub” Doherty died while fighting off a terrorist attack and pleading for help from their government that never arrived because it was never sent.

Blacks and the Confederacy PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 20 January 2016 00:00

Last July, Anthony Hervey, an outspoken black advocate for the Confederate flag, was killed in a car crash. Arlene Barnum, a surviving passenger in the vehicle, told authorities and the media that they had been forced off the road by a carload of "angry young black men" after Hervey, while wearing his Confederate kepi, stopped at a convenience store en route to his home in Oxford, Mississippi. His death was in no small part caused by the gross level of ignorance, organized deceit and anger about the War of 1861. Much of the ignorance stems from the fact that most Americans believe the war was initiated to free slaves, when in truth, freeing slaves was little more than an afterthought. I want to lay out a few quotations and ask what you make of them.

If Nikki Haley Can Deliver State To Jeb Bush, She Could be His Vice President

South Carolina has been chosen as the battleground for the Republican establishment’s last ditch effort to stop and if necessary destroy the campaign of Donald Trump.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, the designated  “Darling” of the Republican Party, was chosen to respond to the Obama State of the Union Message and to serve as the “point person” to stop the advancement of the Donald Trump campaign in the Palmetto State.

When Donald Trump, who is leading all other candidates in South Carolina, proposed temporarily barring Muslims from entry into the United States until the government can assure the people that they are not terrorists, Governor Haley publicly announced her opposition to Trump’s candidacy.

We would also like to express public gratitude to several local retailers for their efforts in reducing underage drinking and tobacco use in Travelers Rest.  As a member agency of the Greenville County Alcohol Enforcement Team, the TRPD sent an undercover operative into several retail establishments on December 17, 2015 to attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages.  To sell to this person would have been a violation of law as this person is underage.   We are happy to report that twelve businesses out of thirteen checked the operative’s ID and refused to complete the sale.  These businesses are Molinas, Walmart, CVS, Sidewall Pizza,  Swamp Rabbit Brewery, Copperhead Mountain Distillery, Shortfields, Blue Ridge Bar and Grill, Willis ABC, Spinx, Bi-Lo, and Pizza House.
