If you have a free Friday evening during the Month of December and would like to go alone or take the entire family to an event that is interesting, entertaining and suitable for the family, there is such an event available in Greenville, South Carolina.  It is convenient and you can determine the time you want to spend there from a few minutes to three hours.  There is no cost or parking fee. There is entertainment for children, live music and refreshments for all and interesting historical displays from Southern History.

The annual event is called Christmas in Dixie and is sponsored by the Museum and Library of Confederate History located at 15 Boyce Avenue in the Pettigru Historic District of Greenville.

The Museum and Library of Confederate History is owned and operated by the 16th Regiment, Sons of Confederate Veterans. Members of the organization are descendents of men who served in the armed services of the Confederacy. The Sons of Confederate Veterans organization was founded by the aging confederate veterans who charged the “Sons” with the task of “preserving the “true history of the South for future generations.”

Trump Picks Winners To Head Defense, Justice PDF Print E-mail

President-elect Donald Trump has picked no-nonsense professionals to head the Departments of Justice, of Defense and the National Security Advisor. These are important operations that have been badly and tragically mismanaged by Obama political appointees.

If confirmed by the Senate, General James Mattis will become Secretary of Defense. General Mattis has 41 years of military service and was described by the Marine Corps Times as “the most revered Marine in a generation.” He is known by his troops as “Mad Dog Mattis.” Donald Trump said he is the closest thing to General George Patton that we have currently.

Mattis was commander of the United States Central Command since 2010, and led the First Marine Division into Iraq in 2003. President Barack Obama forced the Marine legend to retire because he allegedly rubbed Obama’s political appointees the wrong way and “forced them to answer tough questions regarding Iran.”

Does Henry Deserve Thanks? PDF Print E-mail

Lieutenant Governor Henry McMaster was the first elected official to publicly endorse Donald Trump for president of the United States. South Carolina gave Trump a large victory in the Republican Primary as well as the General Election and smashed the candidacy of Jeb Bush despite the campaigning of his former president brother and his mother in the state. There is little evidence that McMaster had much to do with that victory.

Governor Haley definitely had no influence getting votes for the candidates she endorsed and campaigned for. Certainly her strong criticism and vicious attacks on Donald Trump did not hurt him with South Carolina voters.

McMaster informed The Times Examiner six months ago that he intended to run for Governor at the end of Nikki Haley’s second term. The election of Donald Trump as President of the United States combined with a good measure of luck has greatly enhanced his chances.

The remainder of this column contains a measure of speculation that I believe to be true but cannot prove.

Sixty Days of Intense Danger PDF Print E-mail

The United States is facing sixty days of intense danger as Barack Obama completes his second term after rejection of his policies and of his favored replacement Hillary Clinton. As he traveled around the world making speeches, it was clear that he has not yet come to grips with the reality of this loss.

 Those thousands of Christian individuals who prayed for a Trump victory need to continue praying for a peaceful turnover of power. Virtually all of our enemies will test Obama during the transition period, believing that their chances of success will be less successful when Trump takes office.

Some of the senior people in the Obama Administration are evil and would be happy too see harm come to the President-elect. It is my view that they don’t give a darn about the people or the country, they just want to press their agenda.  
President Barack Obama has two more months in the White House. The win by Donald Trump was a dramatic rejection of everything Obama did in 8 years. He has promised to dismantle Obamacare, seal the southern border and reverse most of the Executive Orders Obama issued.
