A disorganized and mostly spontaneous Tea Party was held at congressional offices across the country on Friday, July 17th at Noon. The dominant media has mostly ignored the events, although TV cameras and reporters were on hand to record the events.

Almost 200 people of all ages gathered in front of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s offices in downtown Greenville. Many carried hand-made signs with messages

mostly targeting the Obama administration’s socialist agenda and tyrannical methods. Members of Congress were urged to oppose legislation implementing the socialistic agenda and tyrannical practices.

He became a nationalized U.S. citizen in 1991 and was selected as an astronaut candidate by NASA in April 1996. He reported to the NASA Johnson Space Center in August. He completed two years of training and evaluation and was assigned technical duties in the Astronaut Office Computer Support Branch followed by training in the Astronaut Office Space Station Branch.

Strategy for Destroying Free Enterprise through Orchestrated Crisis (Part II)

In Part I of this series, we discussed the fact that the Obama Administration is following a well-prepared published plan to manipulate the American People and achieve their unannounced goal of destroying the American free enterprise system and creating a socialist dictatorship before intelligent Americans who are not equipped with factual information catch on to the scheme.

President Obama obviously reads the polls and the reports that indicate an increasing number of people have serious concerns about government run health care.

‘Obama Care’ and the End of Life Savings Strategy PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00

The Obama administration is rushing to get control of the nation’s health care system before too many people have time to think about what it is going to cost and how it will degrade medical care in this country. Obama and his 32 Czars intend to be exempt from medication and medical care rationing. They don’t intend for rationing to apply to the elite and the ruling class.  And they have no intention of giving up the reigns of government anytime in the near future.

Inside the Monstrous Obamacare Bureaucracy PDF Print E-mail

If you think government is too big and too costly, wait until Obamacare kicks in. The Congressional Budget Office put the price tag of the House Democrats' health care takeover plans at $1.5 trillion over 10 years. But the CBO's fine print included a telltale caveat:

"We have not yet estimated the administrative costs to the federal government of implementing the specified policies, nor have we accounted for all of the proposal's likely effects on spending for other federal programs."

Socialist America Sinking PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pat Buchanan   
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00

After half a century of fighting encroachments upon freedom in America, journalist Garet Garrett published "The People's Pottage." A year later, in 1954, he died. "The People's Pottage" opens thus:

"There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom."

Garrett wrote of a revolution within the form. While outwardly America appeared the same, a revolution within had taken place that was now irreversible. One need only glance at where we were before the New Deal, where we are and where we are headed to see how far we are off the course the Founding Fathers set for our republic.

Romans Chapter 13 Revisited PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chuck Baldwin   
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00

It seems that every time someone such as myself attempts to encourage our Christian brothers and sisters to resist an unconstitutional or otherwise reprehensible government policy, we hear the retort, "What about Romans Chapter 13? We Christians must submit to government. Any government. Read your Bible, and leave me alone." Or words to that effect.

No doubt, some who use this argument are sincere. They are only repeating what they have heard their pastor and other religious leaders say. On the other hand, let's be honest enough to admit that some who use this argument are just plain lazy, apathetic, and indifferent. And Romans 13 is their escape from responsibility. I suspect this is the much larger group, by the way.

Obama's Health Care Plan Can Be Defeated PDF Print E-mail
Written by Phyllis Schlafly   
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00

The Democrats' most recent answer to the question of how they will pay for their trillion-dollar health-care reform was just announced by Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel. He wants to impose a surtax on incomes over $280,000, which would be a staggering blow to small businesses that create most jobs.

Another option floated by the Democrats is to tax employer-sponsored health coverage. Obama-supporter and union boss James P. Hoffa calls this "a bitter, bitter pill for middle-class wage-earners," and has vowed to fight it.

Character Does Matter PDF Print E-mail

The Bible says in Colossians 3:17, “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” (King James Bible)  The Word of God consistently teaches us to have godly character.  There are too many politicians who have the testimony of do as I say, but they do the opposite of what they say.  Also, we have too many preachers with a double standard testimony.  In both cases, this shows a lack of godly character.  The problem is there is a lack of commitment to do right.  Evangelist Dr. Bob Jones, Sr., said, “Do right till the stars fall.”  We must purpose in our hearts beforehand what we will or will not do.  The Bible says in Daniel 1:8, “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” (King James Bible)  Character cannot be bought or inherited; it must be earned by the earnest desire to do right.  There is no greater compliment to an individual than for someone to tell him that he is a man of character.  For many people, character is subject to change by the amount of money involved.  Character is the sacrificial lamb upon the altar when it comes to fame, fortune, and power.  A person of character can eat, sleep, and work well because of the peace in his heart that he is doing right.  The number one enemy of character is the philosophy of situation ethics.  The devil is the author of this philosophy.

Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00

I have struggled with how best to convey my regret in letting so many down, and in that regard I realize this op-ed does not do justice to the process of saying “I am sorry.” A handwritten note or phone call would ultimately be more appropriate, but given the number of people I need to apologize to I write this to begin the journey of trying to get things more right with you and others.

It is true that I did wrong and failed at the largest of levels, but equally true is the fact that God can make good of our respective wrongs in life. In this vein, while none of us has the chance to attend our own funeral, in many ways I feel like I was at my own in the past weeks, and surprisingly I am thankful for the perspective it has afforded.

Taylor Defines ‘Conservative’ for Greenville County Lawmakers PDF Print E-mail

White Requests Resolution Protecting  Religious Freedom

Robert G. “Butch” Taylor defined “conservative” for members of the Greenville County Legislative Delegation during their

meeting in Greenville, Monday evening. Taylor is president of the Greenville County Taxpayers Association, an active advocate for good government and an outspoken critic of unconstitutional legislation and corrupt government officials.

While many elected officials in South Carolina describe themselves as “conservative,” some would not measure up to the definition and tests described by Butch Taylor and shared by many informed voters. Recent disturbing events are expected to cause voters to more closely examine the voting records, morals and ethics of candidates for public office prior to future elections.

The Fourth Congressional District candidacy of Republican Harold W. “Trey” Gowdy got a boost, at least in Greenville County, from the withdrawal from the race and strong endorsement by Andrew Smart. Smart was one of four individuals who had announced their intentions of challenging incumbent Congressman Bob Inglis in the 2010 Fourth Congressional District Republican Primary prior to the entry of Gowdy. The remaining announced Republican challengers are Mauldin business owner Jim Lee, Spartanburg professor Christine Jeffrey and State Senator David Thomas who represents senate District 8 in Greenville County. Attorney and former Greenville County Republican Party Chairman Stephen Brown, who considered entering the race, will likely stand down now that Gowdy has tossed his hat in the race.

The front of the marker about Thaddeus Lowe's balloon landing. ~ Photo Courtesy of Holly SheenOn June 25 my husband, Ray Sheen, gave a presentation to the 16th South Carolina Volunteers, SCV Camp 36, entitled Aeronautics During the War for Southern Independence. Ray cataloged the progress of ballooning as a military technology during the war era.

One of the most famous balloonists prior to the war was Thaddeus Lowe who had done a number of experiments with balloons. Lowe had a theory that there was a strong prevailing east wind at higher altitudes above the ground-level westerly currents. He decided to try his theory out by riding his balloon from Cincinnati, Ohio, to wherever the balloon might take him. He left Cincinnati at 3:30 a.m. one morning and landed at Pea Ridge, South Carolina, only 9 hours later!

DeMint is one of the few Republican Senators who has the courage and self-confidence to take a public stand in favor of preserving the freedom generations of Americans have fought and died to earn and preserve.

At a time when many Americans are discouraged and seeing little hope for future generations, Sen. DeMint is providing a new Declaration of Independence and calling on the American People to reclaim America.

Strategy for Destroying Free Enterprise through Orchestrated Crisis (First in a Series)

Have you ever heard of the “Cloward-Piven Strategy”? Most Americans not committed to   destroying the free enterprise system in our constitutional republic in order to “redistribute wealth” had never heard of it until recently. Now we are learning that the Cloward-Piven Strategy is the Obama Administration strategy for “change.”

More and more people are finally waking-up to the fact that the man who was elected president of the United States last fall has not kept his promises of reducing taxes and providing and saving jobs. In fact, the results of the first six months of his administration have produced the opposite of what was promised.

Who Should Apologize and Resign?

Letters, email messages and telephoned opinions to talk radio programs continue to call for the resignation of Governor Mark Sanford. The Governor has apologized to virtually everyone, including the “other woman,” for his marital indiscretion. Both he and Mrs. Sanford wish to reconcile for the sake of their four young sons. The Governor is apparently determined to remain in office and do his job while attempting to “put his family back together.” Whether he is able to succeed is a family matter, despite the fact that he is a public official.

Senate Slavery Apology PDF Print E-mail
Written by Walter Williams   
Wednesday, 15 July 2009 00:00

Last month, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed Senate Resolution 26 "Apologizing for the enslavement and racial segregation of African-Americans." The resolution ends with: "Disclaimer. -- Nothing in this resolution (a) authorizes or supports any claim against the United States; or (b) serves as a settlement of any claim against the United States." That means Congress apologizes but is not going to pay reparations, as least for now.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus have expressed concerns about the disclaimer, thinking that it's an attempt to stave off reparations claims from the descendants of slaves. Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said her organization is studying the language of the resolution and Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss, said "putting in a disclaimer takes away from the meaning of an apology. A number of us are prepared to vote against it in its present form. There are several members of the Progressive Caucus who feel the same way."

The Age Of Despotism PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chuck Baldwin   
Wednesday, 15 July 2009 00:00

This past Independence Day weekend, my friend, LCDR (Retired) Guy Cunningham, delivered an outstanding address here in Pensacola, Florida, in which he said that America is now in "The Age of Perfidy." He went on to say that our country is soon to enter "The Age of Despotism." I candidly confess that I believe the retired Naval officer could be more right than we might want to admit.

Commander Cunningham is no slouch. He was a Green Beret (who served in the same Special Forces company alongside his father and two brothers), an infantryman with the 101st Airborne Division, Navy pilot, mission commander and analyst. He is also the author of the now-famous 29 Palms Survey. His military credentials are unassailable. When Commander Cunningham speaks, people should listen.

Our Founding Fathers forged this nation with blood, sweat, and tears.  Many of them gave the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives.  The founding of this nation was not for the faint of heart.  Our Founding Fathers did not found this country because of the desire for greed and power, as the leftists say, but they founded this nation for the cause to live, work, and die as free Americans.  They wanted to be free from the oppressive hand of Mother England.  England was smothering the colonies both spiritually and physically.  There was a great deal of debate and soul-searching before our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. Josiah Quincy, who was a great American orator for freedom during this time, said, “Blandishments will not fascinate us, nor will threats of a ‘halter’ intimidate.  For, under God, we are determined that wheresoever, whensoever, or howsoever, we shall be called to make our exit, we will die as free men.”

Obama Dictates Construction Freeze PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Al Snyder   
Wednesday, 15 July 2009 00:00

Last week President Barack Obama exercized his audacity again, declaring that Israel has the green light from the US to go ahead and complete construction on housing units in the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria that were already begun. But he added that after those projects were completed, he was demanding "a full construction freeze" in all the communities "across the disputed territories." And he added that he expected Israel "to fully comply with its demands."

I don't recall that it was Barack Obama who won the last election for Prime Minister of Israel. Do you? Yet it seems as if he thinks he holds the office of Super Prime Minister, or is it Dictator? How does he think he has the authority to make such dictatorial demands on Israel? How can he ignore that Israel is a viable and successful independent sovereign state? Does he consider Israel to be just another US state, or a colony of the US under his empirical  administation?
