Columbia Reacting to Plans to “Gut” Fort Jackson PDF Print E-mail

Worst case Scenario Post Would Lose 3,100 of 7,000 Permanent Military and Civilian Personnel

Fort Jackson has been added to a list of United States Army posts being considered for major personnel reductions. The Columbia Chamber of Commerce is reacting quickly to “build a network of stakeholders to reach elected officials of both parties at the local, state, and federal level. “

Under the worst case scenario, the Army’s Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment (SPEA) projects that Fort Jackson could lose 3,100 of its 7,000 permanent party Army soldier and civilian population.

“This reduction would be devastating to the Midlands, and doesn’t account for the associated economic decline in the ensuing reduction in basic trainees,” said the Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber estimates that losing 3,100 jobs would equate to a population loss of 7,733, including direct, indirect employees, spouses and dependents.

The Slater-Marietta Lions Club was joined by more than a hundred leading citizens at Marietta First Baptist Church, Saturday afternoon, to honor a true gentleman and a living example of honesty, integrity. charity, modesty and unconditional love as described by his pastor, his barber, his friends and neighbors, his   children and  grandchildren.

Brock Adams will celebrate his 99th birthday this month. A farmer and textile worker for most of his life, Adams has arguably had a positive impact on more lives than any living resident of the Slater-Marietta community.

His County Council member, state Representative and Senator read proclamations enumerating his many accomplishments and contributions to his community, proclaiming a day in his honor.

His current pastor commended him for not being a “church hopper” and moving from church to church because of disagreements. Being disagreeable is not a  part of Brock Adams. He has been a member of the same church most of his life and at age 99 continues to serve as a deacon.

Lisa Benson, Talk Show Host Issues “Call to Action”


Lisa Benson, host of the Lisa Benson Radio Show for National Security, was guest speaker at the July Luncheon of the Greenville County Republican Women’s Club. Her topic was The Bible belt Under Shariah Assault: A Call to Action.

Lisa Benson described herself as a “conservative Jewish woman” acknowledging that most Jews in America are socialist Democrats.

She quoted Franklin Graham saying that a majority of Christians did not vote in the last presidential election. That contributed to the election of Barack Obama to a second term and contributed to the problems we face today.

She reminded her audience that radical Muslims are slaughtering Christians throughout the world and six are serving in the Obama White House.

“William Dennis Crain, Jr., had five brothers at the start of the Civil War. When the war was over, he had two.  Two brothers, Jasper and John, were excused from military duty because of their occupations. Jasper was exempt based on his textile mill duty in Augusta. The south needed cloth for uniforms, blankets and the like, so Jasper stayed behind. John was a bridge designer and builder and was exempted from military duty because the South desperately needed bridges and railroads for troops and supplies.

Greenville County GOP Executive Committee Discussed Support of RINOS and their Opponents

Groover---Fox-Smith_Page-03The Greenville County Republican Party Executive Committee spent most of their Monday evening August meeting time discussing rules governing county and precinct officers and the requirement that they refrain from openly supporting opponents of the party nominee in the General Election.

A planned resolution to wave a rule that would allow Executive Committeemen to support a petition candidate challenging United States Senator Lindsey Graham was never presented to the committee for consideration.

The rules state that a party officer forfeits his office if he supports an opponent of the party candidate.

The only motion that made it to the floor was one regarding the primary winner and Republican Party nominee for Superintendent of  Education.

Illegals Bringing Diseases to Upstate PDF Print E-mail

Official and unofficial reports indicate that hundreds of illegals will be transported to South Carolina between August 9 and October 20. Some 200 ranging from age7 to 20 will reportedly be sent to Greenville directly from the border with Mexico. Another 150 will reportedly be arriving in the Southern Greenville County town of Simpsonville during the same time period.

Obviously we  don’t know who or what to believe, however, we know that our Southern border is open and people from every part of the world, both adults and children are pouring in by the thousands. It is quite apparent that the leftist radicals in control of the Democrat Party are orchestrating this massive invasion of our country from inside the Obama Administration.

Ebola. Chikungunya. Dengue. Norovirus. Hantavirus. Swine flu. Varicella. Variola. The names sound like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. Yet, threats to Americans are real, and escalating by the week. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported on August 1 that serious diseases are spreading at detention centers for Illegal border crossers. Health care workers and Border Patrol agents, plus their children, have tested positive for tuberculosis (TB), swine flu, chicken pox, lice and scabies. Instead of being quarantined, illegal border crossers are being dispersed rapidly across the U.S., with those of school age being registered in public schools opening soon for all.

General James Amos, Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, has been loyal to the current Commander-in-Chief. Troops have been gritting their teeth and asking why their fearless leaders are allowing Barack Obama to literally destroy their beloved service branch during wartime.

Remaining silent in the midst of a storm ended for General Amos recently while speaking to the liberal Brookings Institute think tank. During that address, the 4-star general who is set to retire in the fall, openly and publicly criticized Barack Husein Obama.

During an interview on Fox News, Lt. Col. Ollie North commended the Commandant for his courage. Reporters expressed surprise that a senior officer would dare question White House and Pentagon policy.

The 2014 Sons of Confederate Veterans National Reunion was held in North Charleston, South Carolina, July 17-19.  Wednesday night, prior to the start of the Reunion, I was invited to a drop-in to celebrate the return of the Star of the West ship’s bell to Charleston.  This was quite an honor and the highlight of the week for me.  I also had the privilege of ringing the bell.

The bell was displayed at the Reunion, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  It will be on exhibit at the Citadel for six months.  If you are in Charleston and have time, I suggest a visit to see it.

Lincoln’s Economic Legacies PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 30 July 2014 00:00

This series is based on the author’s presentation of a paper to the Stephen D. Lee Institute in Savannah, Georgia, in February 2012.

In December 2010, Allen Guelzo, Professor of Civil War Era History at Gettysburg College published an article in National Review entitled “Mr. Lincoln’s Economics Primer,” Quoting Lincoln’s law partner William Herndon, he asserted that Lincoln liked to study political economy. Quoting his fellow Springfield, Illinois lawyer, Shelby Cullom, he asserted that Lincoln was great on political economy. Although Herndon once wrote that Lincoln seldom finished an entire book, Cullom gave him credit for voraciously digesting and assimilating directly or indirectly the works of classical economists like Adam Smith and David Ricardo. He also mentioned John Stuart Mill, Mathew Carey, John Ramsay McCulloch, Francis Wayland, and Henry Carey.

While President Obama is plowing ahead with his ruthless plans to "radically transform America,” Globalists are accelerating implementation of a “One World Government.” Most Americans are not paying attention and are oblivious to the scheme that has been public for more than a decade but has been denied by elected officials and most of the news media, including FOX News.

On June 18, 2014, in London, Retired General and former CIA Director David Petraeus proclaimed that the United States of America is set to be merged into the continental regime being erected under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The New American reported that during the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty, “the ex-commander of U. S. Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq essentially celebrated the end of U. S. independence – and by extension, the demise of the Constitution.”

Deliverance from Addiction for young Men 17 to 25


Addiction is a serious problem in Upstate South Carolina and throughout our society. Many lives are destroyed by addiction to alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription drugs, to name a few. Addiction takes its toll on families and taxpayers. It is virtually impossible for an addict to become free from addiction on his own.

A proven solution is available to all who seek it; however, most pursue popular, politically correct avenues of treatment  without lasting success.

There are many drug treatment programs. Some substitute legal substances for the illegal drugs. Some use various psychological techniques. Any one of these programs may provide temporary relief, or an illusion of relief, but the individual remains an addict with a craving for the drug.
