TreyGowdy-11-09-16

The ladies and guests of the  Greenville County Republican Women’s Club greeted Fourth District Congressman Trey Gowdy  with several rousing standing ovations Monday at the Poinsett Club. Gowdy is a contender for the office of Attorney General of the United States should  Donald Trump become President. He has supported Trump since he became the Party nominee, and along with Third District Congressman Jeff Duncan is one of the most consistent conservatives in the House. He is a natural to be the chairman of the special committee holding hearings on the Benghazi  scandal.

This commentary is being written Sunday night, however it will not be dated until Wednesday, a day after the election. Since we can’t talk about results, we can only speculate on the aftermath of various outcomes.

Donald Trump has promised that if elected, he will “drain the swamp” in Washington, D. C. and his administration will rid the federal government of the “corrupt political class” The corrupt political class includes both Democrats, Republicans and others who feed at the government taxpayer trough. They will do whatever is necessary, legal or otherwise, to maintain their lucrative positions of power and influence.

The Aftermath PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 09 November 2016 00:00

The election of 2016 is finally over. As I write this prior to Election Day, I have no knowledge of who will be the next POTUS. Regardless who won, however, can we all agree to make some changes so we never again find ourselves with such a lousy choice in candidates?

Political parties have become the antithesis of democracy. The Democrats were uncovered by WikiLeaks, emails clearly showed that Bernie Sanders did not have a prayer of winning the nomination. That Hillary Clinton engaged in corruption should surprise nobody. That the Democrat National Committee (DNC) did so will only be an issue if you are not a progressive ideologue, the sort that has taken control of the DNC. And because Hillary successfully colluded with the DNC to rig the primary system in her favor, it reinforced her belief that she was entitled to be POTUS. She tried to wrestle the nomination from Obama in 2008 also, but there were too many Democrats then who refused to go along.

Surprise: Trump May Become President PDF Print E-mail

The Clinton political machine could take the White House despite all the criminal investigations surrounding the candidate. For three decades Bill and Hillary Clinton have been all about avoiding paying for their crimes, proven and unproven.
Recently the tides began to turn and the winds to shift. It was announced by the White House that the cost of Obama-Care would increase as much as 100 percent next year. Some people had already been hit hard by Obama-Care including Small Businesses.

One national company in South Carolina has already increased premiums on their Long Term Care Policies by 40 percent. The policies stated and purchasers were promised that premiums would never increase and benefits would never be cut. Prior to the first rate increase, a letter informed policy holders that they were required to re-write all policies, not increase rates on the old policies. As a policy holder who had been paying premiums for several years, you had options. You could pay the increased premium and have the same benefits, you could drop the policy and forfeit all the premiums you had paid, or you could keep your premiums low and reduce your benefits .

Hillary Collides with the Weiner File PDF Print E-mail

Christians in recent weeks across the nation have been praying that God would intervene and derail the Hillary Clinton steamroller speeding toward the presidency. Hillary Clinton may be the most corrupt and evil anti-Christian candidate to seek the presidency in American history. Thousands of prayers have been sincerely prayed and God always hears such prayers. Last Friday, these prayers seem to have been answered.

The FBI Director had announced, to the disappointment of conservatives and Christians that all charges against Hillary Clinton had been dropped, Democrats celebrated and Republicans mourned.

Then, this last Friday afternoon the FBI Director announced that he had received new information and he had reopened the investigation of Hillary Clinton and her complex email matters. The Director of the FBI sent a letter to the chairmen and minority leaders of the various congressional committees informing them that the case had been reopened. The Director gave no details. This omission angered the Hillary campaign and their supporters.

Republican Glen Robinson Challenging Liberal Democrat Senator Karl Allen in S.C. Senate District 7


As more African-Americans become financially and socially independent, they are feeling free to make their own political decisions, Patricia L. Dickson predicted in the American Thinker that “regardless of the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election, Donald Trump’s rise will force the Democratic Party to eventually have to address how it’s elected officials have neglected black Americans, it’s most loyal constituency.”

She wrote that the Democrat Party’s “worst nightmare” was when Trump reached out to blacks and asked: “What the ---- do you have to lose?”

After touring the George Washington Carver National Monument, about which I wrote in the previous installment of this travel series and at which I had a chance encounter with someone who knew my uncle many years ago, I drove a few miles north to pay a quick visit to the Battle of Carthage State Historic Site.

The relatively small engagement took place on July 5, 1861, less than two months after the first shot of the War Between the States was fired at Fort Sumter. The battle was fought by the Confederate-sympathsizing Missouri State Guard, led by then-governor Claiborne F. Jackson and several Union regiments led by Union general Franz Sigel. The battle was pretty much a draw but it did serve the Confederacy in the sense that it inspired the recruitment of more soldiers for the Southern effort.
As I began to backtrack through Carthage, I made a brief stop at a church that I had seen on the way to the battlefield. By the sidewalk near the church was a sign that read, “Grace Church Bible Garden and Labyrinth.” Some liberal churches have adopted the pagan labyrinth to enhance their spiritual experience. I also passed a Vietnamese Roman Catholic monastery bearing the unbiblical name “Congregation of the Mother Coredemptrix.” Underneath that title were the words “Chi Dong Dong Cong.”
I soon connected with the interstate and drove into Joplin, where I had a hotel room waiting for me. The gentleman who checked me in gave me a list of locally-owned restaurants that he recommended.
