INDEPENDENT CONSERVATIVE VOICE OF THE PALMETTO STATE
Planned Overload May Have Surprises PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 23 September 2009 00:00

It is quite obvious that the Obama Administration is following a plan developed long ago. It appears that the plan is designed to create so much upheaval and uncertainty in every aspect of life that there is no way that the opposition can muster the time, energy and resources to mount a successful defense.

It has recently been revealed that the plan for the government to take control of health care has been in existence since the days of Franklin Roosevelt and each attempt to surface it has been defeated. Now we have a generation of Americans who have been systematically “dumbed-down” and, lacking knowledge of history and truth, they are subject to psychological manipulation by trained change agents.

God save me from my friends -- I can take care of my enemies.

So President Obama must be muttering today.

Ten days ago, the president played his ace of trumps.

He went before a joint session of Congress to lay out his health care plans, confront the "demagoguery" of critics who had resorted to "distortion," "misinformation" and "tall tales," and rally progressives and Blue Dogs to reunite and drive on to victory.

ACORN's Illegal Alien Home Loan Racket PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michelle Malkin   
Wednesday, 23 September 2009 00:00

There's one thing more shocking than the illegal alien smuggling advice that an ACORN official in San Diego gave undercover journalists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles. It's the illegal alien home loan racket that ACORN has already been operating with the full knowledge of the U.S. government.

On Wednesday, O'Keefe and Giles published the fifth in a series of BigGovernment.com sting videos. ACORN official Juan Carlos Vera coached the pimp-and-prostitute-posing pair on how best to pull off a border-busting smuggling operation. It would be "better from Tijuana," he counseled on videotape. Vera then generously offered the investigative couple his Mexican "contacts" to bring 12 illegal alien girls into the country for prostitution.

The sanctimonious shock at Rep. Joe Wilson's (R-SC) calling out "You lie" when Barack Obama said the health care bill will not insure illegal aliens reminds me of the Casablanca police

chief saying he was "shocked, shocked" to learn that gambling was taking place in the saloon. Barack Obama's congressional pals had defeated the Republican amendment to require proof of legal residency in order to be covered by the health care bill, and the American people know that illegals are now getting free health care at emergency rooms.

Push For Globalism Continues PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chuck Baldwin   
Wednesday, 23 September 2009 00:00

When George W. Bush was President, he greatly advanced the prospect of integrating the United States with a North American Union (NAU). With no thanks to most Christian conservatives or the mainstream news media, hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans rallied against this proposal and--at least temporarily--seriously stymied Bush's draconian dream. But if you thought President Barack Obama would be content to let the NAU die a natural death, think again.

Reporting for World Net Daily, author/researcher Jerome Corsi recently reported, "President Obama is continuing President George W. Bush's effort to advance North American integration with a public-relations makeover calculated to place the program under the radar of public opinion and to deflect concerns about border security and national sovereignty.

Israel welcomed the Jewish year 5770 last Saturday with somewhat somber but meaningful celebration. Jerusalem Post writer Liat Collins wrote that 5769 was not a "shana toba," or a good year. But thankfully, neither was it the worst. The following is a condensed version of her JP article.

As we mark 70 years since the outbreak of World War II, we know we have much to be grateful for. Primarily, we are still alive. And we now have our own sovereign state. It has too often been ordered around, but nevertheless, it is lively independent and flourishing in nature and deed.

Marxist Thinking? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Raquelle Sheen   
Wednesday, 23 September 2009 00:00

One of the key tenets of Marxism is that the end justifies the means. In other words, if the goal is desirable then you can use whatever means are necessary to achieve it, even if they are unethical. After all, it’s for the “greater good,” right?

A Christian worldview rejects this notion wholeheartedly. Good ends should be achieved by good means. God has given us standards of right and wrong that He expects us to obey regardless of whatever noble goals we are pursuing. For example, as Christians we support worthwhile charities and missions. However, no Christian in his right mind would reason that it is acceptable in God’s eyes to rob a bank in order to give lots of money to a charity or a missionary.

“Somewhere Between One and Two Million”

Fox News rising star Glenn Beck launched the 9-12 project to energize and give direction to Americans who were awakening to growing problems in government but didn’t know what to do.

Patriotic groups from across the country picked up the idea of marching on Washington on September 12, the day following the anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States eight years ago. Their motivation was mostly to send a message to a government that is out-of-control, a government that is spending future generations into hopeless debt, even if the nation’s financial structure can survive. They were protesting a government that is not only failing to spend the taxpayers money responsibly, they are failing to protect the borders and, finally, attempting to impose a takeover of medical care in some form yet to be clearly described.

Joe Wilson could sit quietly no longer. President Barack Obama speaking before a Joint Session of Congress was calling Republicans who disagreed with his efforts to put the medical care of Americans under control of the federal bureaucracy either by controlling insurance companies or creating a government operated system “blatant liars.”

Wilson yelled out: “You lie!”

Obama appeared stunned for a moment, and then continued his lecture.

Washington and Lee – The Early Years PDF Print E-mail

Birthplace of Robert E. Lee, Stratford Hall, Northumberland County, Virginia.
Although I was born and raised in Maryland, my roots on my mother’s side go way back to early colonial Virginia. I am not a member of the FFV (First Families of Virginia) club, but I am pretty close.

I fell in love with Virginia from an early age, having visited relatives there on a number of occasions while growing up. And, from an early age, I became acquainted with the rich heritage of the Old Dominion state.

In my previous article I was telling you about my visit to two early and very historic colonial brick churches in the eastern part of Virginia. Everywhere you turn, it seems, history lurks about, just waiting to pounce upon the unsuspecting traveler.

Getting Back to the Constitution PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 16 September 2009 00:00

In the beginning of his best selling book, Saving Freedom, U. S. Senator Jim DeMint discusses the oath of office taken by all members of Congress and their pledge to defend the Constitution of the United States. Then he notes that Congress seldom mentions the Constitution in connection with legislation because much of the legislation “does not fit within the limited powers of the federal government specified by the Constitution.”

Delegates from twelve states crafted the Constitution “in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” The new government was given specific, limited authority. All other authority was left to the States or to the people.

Washington's Lies PDF Print E-mail
Written by Walter Williams   
Wednesday, 16 September 2009 00:00

President Obama and congressional supporters estimate that his health care plan will cost between $50 and $65 billion a year. Such cost estimates are lies whether they come from a Democratic president and Congress, or a Republican president and Congress. You say, "Williams, you don't show much trust in the White House and Congress." Let's check out their past dishonesty.

At its start, in 1966, Medicare cost $3 billion. The House Ways and Means Committee, along with President Johnson, estimated that Medicare would cost an inflation-adjusted $12 billion by 1990. In 1990, Medicare topped $107 billion. That's nine times Congress' prediction. Today's Medicare tab comes to $420 billion with no signs of leveling off. How much confidence can we have in any cost estimates by the White House or Congress?

Suicide of the West? PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 16 September 2009 00:00

Britain's release of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi-- the Libyan terrorist whose bomb blew up a plane over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988, killing 270 people-- is galling enough in itself. But it is even more profoundly troubling as a sign of a larger mood that has been growing in the Western democracies in our time.

In ways large and small, domestically and internationally, the West is surrendering on the installment plan to Islamic extremists.

The late Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn put his finger on the problem when he said: "The timid civilized world has found nothing with which to oppose the onslaught of a sudden revival of barefaced barbarity, other than concessions and smiles."

Training Kids to Be Obama's Servants PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 16 September 2009 00:00

A significant part of Barack Obama's plan to "change" America involves having the federal government take control of public school curriculum, plus compiling a database of personal information about each student. The takeover is planned to be accomplished by talking directly to the kids in their schools, and by attaching extraordinary strings to the $128 billion of Stimulus funds shoveled into education.

Obama's announced September 8 speech from the White House website to every schoolchild in America kicked up a storm of controversy. A study plan for his speech produced by the U.S. Department of Education, which exposes the political motives, was pre-circulated.

Charlie--Hovie
This week’s article will continue to highlight the South Carolina Gospel Music Association’s 2009 induction class by featuring Hovie Lister.  As you may know Hovie was born in Greenville, South Carolina in the Poe Mill area. He was born on September 17, 1926, into a singing family. His grandfather taught “shape note” music schools. Hovie’s father was one of five boys and four of the five sang with Hovie’s father being one of the four. They were known as The Lister Brothers and only sang part-time and worked regular jobs in the cotton mill. Hovie stated that there were a lot of weekday singings and that every Thursday at the Salvation Army Auditorium a gospel music concert was held. Gospel music in those days was very popular. That was some 65 years ago.
