“I want to protect our citizens – all of our citizens.”

DonaldTrump_Page-01This was going to be a speech on Hillary Clinton and how bad a President, especially in these times of Radical Islamic Terrorism, she would be.

Even her former Secret Service Agent, who has seen her under pressure and in times of stress, has stated that she lacks the temperament and integrity to be president.

There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss these important issues at a later time, and I will deliver that speech soon.

But today there is only one thing to discuss: the growing threat of terrorism inside of our borders.

The attack on the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, was the worst terrorist strike on our soil since September 11th, and the worst mass shooting in our country’s history.

So many people dead, so many people gravely injured, so much carnage, such a disgrace.

The Republican Executive Committee passed a resolution approving a three-part test to determine party loyalty. Candidates present at the meeting who were invited to speak were the first to be asked the test questions which were: have you ever registered as a Democrat; have you ever voted for a Democrat and have you ever donated to a Democrat (within the last 15 years). Chairman Chad Groover had just announced that vetting was a simple yes/no based on an honest policy with no policing or enforcement because of limits on time to investigate. The first candidate to speak, Stacey Kuper, County Council Candidate District 21 responded to the first question with a “no” and was immediately interupted by 1st Vice Chairman Nate Leupp who appeard to be reading from his cellphone that Kuper had indeed been registered as Democrat in the State of Florida.

The Greenville County Republican Party Executive Committee Insist that Governor Haley and Attorney General Alan Wilson “Fervently Reject the Redefinition of Gender in Title IX Concerning Locker Rooms and Gender Segregated Areas in South Carolina Public Schools.”


A Resolution was proposed by Executive Committeeman Anthony Gilliard representing Fox Chase Precinct at the June Committee meeting, to pressure Governor Nikki Haley and Attorney General Alan Wilson to reject the federal government overreach regarding the redefinition of Gender in Title IX concerning the locker rooms and gender segregated areas in public schools in South Carolina.

The issue of individuals deciding what gender they want to be rather than the determination at birth based on anatomy, is becoming a serious controversy stoked by the Obama Administration and accepted by elected officials of all stripes who fear engaging in politically incorrect controversy.

This is the True Story of What actually Happened on the Ground in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 as Told by CIA Security Officials who Defied Orders to “Stand Down,” and Risked their Lives to Save Other Americans Pleading for Help.


The movie adaptation of the book 13 Hours in Benghazi by Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, June 7, 2013.

Three of the contract operators who responded to the September 11, 2012 attack on Benghazi, Mark “Oz” Geist, Kris “Tanto” Paronto and John “Tig” Tiegen went public and allowed their names to be used in the book and movie. Jack Silva and Dave Benton who also participated in the activities, are pseudonyms used to preserve their families’ privacy and their own. Another member of the CIA team, Tyrone “Rone” Woods died during the attack on the Annex.

Kris Paronto spoke at the Greenville County Republican Women’s Club luncheon  at the Poinsett Club on 26 March of last year. On the night before the luncheon The Times Examiner hosted a dinner in his honor with the help of friends. About 50 guests attended the event and had an opportunity to interact with one of the real heroes of Benghazi.
