Using the Power of the Purse to Preserve Traditional Marriage

State Representative Bill Chumley (R-Spartanburg) is working with other conservatives to craft a response to the efforts of a few Federal judges to force South Carolina to legalize homosexual marriage. Rather than waiting on the legislature to convene in January, Rep. Chumley and other supporters of traditional marriage are calling on Governor Nikki Haley to call a special session of the General Assembly before more damage can be done by the Federal courts.

“We have to move quickly,” Chumley said. “Every day the Federal courts and their liberal enablers are working to destroy the traditional values of our society and marriage is the main line of attack.”

Has the Republican Party declared war on Republicans? The first shots were fired during the last Republican National Convention, when obvious dirty tricks were played on key conservative delegates at critical times and during critical votes. Some were delayed from entering the convention floor. Others were kept on buses and not allowed to exit. It was the beginning of top down direction of the GOP. It is nothing new. The RNC is not being creative, they are simply copying the unethical practices of the liberal Democrats, and tragically, for the party and the republic, they have recruited “willful idiots” to support their agenda at the state and county level across the “fruited plane.”

In January, the United States Senate will have 54 members that call themselves Republicans. The House of Representatives will have a larger majority of members calling themselves Republicans than the current membership.

Greer Residents “Devastated” by Desecration of American Flag on Lighted Pole In Upscale Neighborhood

US-SC-Flag_Page-01On Wednesday, November 26, the day before Thanksgiving, Joe Barnett and his wife awoke to find their American and South Carolina flags cut from their twenty-foot lighted flag pole. They found the flags torn and on the ground. The American flag had been cut from the stars to the end of the third white stripe form the top.

The couple were devastated by what they found in their yard, because someone(s) had not only trespassed their private property, but had desecrated the American flag in this manner.

The incident was reported to the Greer Police Department and an award of $500 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the one(s) responsible.

This vicious and premeditated property destruction and flag desecration is especially hurtful for the Barnett family as their son is currently serving his country in harms way.

Conservative Input Virtually Shut Out of Last Two Meetings


“Establishment” Republicans are now clearly in charge of the County Executive Committee. With the election of Attorney Chad Groover chairman, in a matter of months, Tea Party presence that one year ago had a strong presence in the Executive Committee has been driven out or   quit in protest. The remaining few have been silenced by the chairman.

Veteran party leaders who have worked to keep Greenville County out of the clutches of RINOs (Republicans in Name Only), are becoming discouraged .

Wake Up Sheeple! PDF Print E-mail

Wake up sheeple! The hour is late and the windows of opportunity are closing. The agenda being implemented by the sixties radicals now in control of the Democrat Party is clear. There is no longer a need to speculate or depend upon some political analyst to give their analysis and interpretation of what these people are doing to our Constitutional Republic that they have incorrectly re-designated a Democracy.

They are a coalition of radical leftists, socialists and communists who prefer to be addressed by the politically-correct and deceptive label: Progressives. They are indoctrinated in and implementing the teachings of Sol Alinsky found in his book, Rules for Radicals, combined with the Cloward-Piven strategy.

Nikita Kruchev boasted that the United States would be destroyed from within. Barack Obama arrogantly bragged that he would fundamentally transform our republic. Both are on the verge of being proven correct.

Few Americans believe the current national Republican leadership has the wisdom, will or desire to reverse the Obama agenda. That leaves divine intervention as the only hope for future generations of Americans to remain free.

Two historic events took place in the United States earlier this month. Voters overwhelmingly rejected the Democrat Party, their President and the policies of their government. Republicans were given control of the Senate with a comfortable majority and they were given an increase in their majority in the House. This remarkable achievement gives the Republicans a probable “last” chance to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from being destroyed by “enemies, foreign and domestic.” They have taken a solemn oath to do so. Now we will see if they have the wisdom and backbone to keep their word and live up to their oath of office.

Delegation Hears Reason for Vietnamese-American Memorial Monument PDF Print E-mail

The Upstate Vietnamese-American community and United States veterans of the Vietnam War have worked together for months to develop a concept and a scale model of an appropriate  memorial to honor the American and Vietnamese military personnel who fought side-by-side in an effort to preserve the freedom of the Vietnamese people.

Factual history shows that although the military won the war, a weary United States Government abandoned the effort and the Vietnamese people to fend for themselves against an oppressive Communist regime.

Members of the Vietnamese military and others who worked with Americans along with family members were imprisoned in “reeducation” work camps until they proved their loyalty to the Communist regime or escaped by boat at sea or to an adjoining country.
