“It is Impossible to Defeat an Enemy you are Unwilling to Identify.”


On Sunday morning following the radical Islamic attacks on innocent civilians in Paris, Dr. Robert Jeffress Pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, dispensed with political correctness and provided a special message to his congregation. Dr. Jeffress and Pastor Donnie Swaggart have demonstrated boldness and courage that most pastors and elected officials have not yet exhibited.

The message now on U-tube lasts only 6 minutes and will be quoted as near verbatim as possible.

I feel like I need to address the tragedy we all witnessed this weekend in Paris. What should be our response to that tragedy? Certainly, as Christians, we should be praying for the victims and the victims families. Psalms 34 says, The Lord is close to those who are broken hearted.

Trump Holds Strong Lead in all three Early Primary States, Cruz Passes Carson in Iowa. Stop Trump PAC Forming.

“I think it will come down to Trump and Cruz, to tell you the truth,” said former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin in an interview with WBT-FM in Charlotte, North Carolina last Thursday.

“People are really tired of professional politicians who won’t call it like they see it and maybe don’t have life experiences that allow them to prove a track record of success.

“That’s refreshing about Trump. He’s a fighter. We know he’s going to put America first. And he really nailed it early on what the main problems are in America right now.”

Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz went to Bob Jones University, Saturday afternoon, holding the “Rally for Religious Liberty.” Hundreds filled the campus beginning with a moment of silence for the Paris attacks. Cruz exclaimed that Obama is not doing enough to fight ISIS, and if Americans do not act, “we will be mourning another attack like this.”

Cruz began his speech by quoting Martin Luther King, Jr. and reminded the audience that he was indeed a pastor. Cruz then attempts to appeal to conservatives, quoting Reagan’s first speech at Notre Dame after he was shot, stating, “‘Communism is a bizarre chapter in human history, whose last pages even now are being written.’ Let me say that the same is true of radical Islamic terrorism.” In addition, Cruz notes interestingly that Notre Dame had a “tremendous Christian Heritage.”

Members of the Greenville County Republican Women’s Club showed great interest in the presentation on refugee resettlement by Michelle Wiles. At the conclusion of her presentation the club, the largest in the state, unanimously passed a resolution asking Governor Nikki Haley to suspend acceptance of refugees from Muslim countries until assurances can be given that there are no terrorists imbedded in the groups.

The Greenville County Republican Party Executive Committee passed the same resolution earlier this month. Greenville County Council, to date, has refused to even consider such a resolution. The GCRWC will pass the resolution to the State Federation of Republican Women for consideration.
