An old adage that I recall from childhood appears more true today than ever. “If you give some people an inch, they will take a mile.”

Before current college-aged South Carolinians were born, schools and other institutions in this state were integrated and Jim Crow Laws scrapped with minimum turmoil. Later, lawmakers proclaimed national, state and county MLK Holidays and began naming highways, streets, schools and other landmarks for the late civil rights leader. MLK is the only American to be so honored.

Then came demands. “Remove the battle flag from the capitol dome or the NAACP will lead a boycott of the state.” In order to maintain peace, a compromise was reached and agreed to by all parties.  The flag would be removed from the dome and placed appropriately at the memorial of the Confederate soldier on the capitol grounds. As part of the agreement, a large monument heralding Black history would be erected on the capitol grounds. The agreement was made into law.

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter has announced he is opening all positions in the U. S. military to women. Obama has been pushing this unwise change for years. This decision will degrade the overall effectiveness of several critical elements of the United States defense establishment. The decision was not made of military necessity or to improve the military in any way. It was made to satisfy the career ambitions of a dozen or so senior military women and to degrade the military by those politicians who loathe the military and want to fundamentally change the United States of America to their twisted vision of a Socialist state.

It is clear that the Obama Administration has no interest in their decision’s impact on national defense or the impact on individual service women or their fellow service members.

The first Republican presidential primaries will begin in a little more than two months. In theory and as most voters understand the system, the votes are tallied for each state and the winner of each state receives all the electoral votes. The candidate who receives the largest number of electoral votes will become the nominee of the party and will select their Vice Presidential Running Mate.

The Democrats will nominate and support Hilary Clinton as their candidate although she has a horrible record and could be charged and convicted of a variety of crimes should there be an Attorney General willing to serve the papers.

On the third Tuesday night in November, Greenville County Council unanimously passed a resolution urging a halt to acceptance of refugees that have not been adequately vetted and proven not to be terrorists. Two weeks earlier, the Council had taken a hard line against such a resolution. What happened to drastically change the attitude?

The day before South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley modified her stand on welcoming refugees from the United Nations refugee stream. Haley had earlier agreed to accept the refugees. What motivated the change in position by the Governor?

The Islamic slaughter of more then 130 innocent people in Paris, Friday night, has Americans suddenly concerned about safety. We know from the days before Obama (BO) and extreme political correctness that it is the “truth that sets men free.” Therefore, if we are to have victory over and freedom from the various Islamic terrorist organizations, we must know the truth about who they are, what motivates them and their ultimate goals.

The origin of this conflict goes back to Genesis in the Old Testament. Abraham failed to obey God and fathered a son “Ishmael” by his wife’s maid. He was banished from the family when a legitimate son “Isaac” was born to Abraham and his wife Sarah. Ishmael became the father of the Muslims and Isaac the father of the Jews. There is much more to the story in the book of Genesis.

What is wrong with the RNC? Are they ignorant, stupid or afraid of Hillary Clinton? Hillary had a notorious history before emails were in use and before Barack Obama named her his secretary of state. If the RNC were interested in assuring that Republicans regain the White House, they would be educating the American people on the jaded history and alleged crimes of Hillary Rhodham Clinton as recorded by the U.S. media.

We could begin with the fact that she was a student and admirer of sixties radical Sol Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, dedicated to Lucifer, and the guidebook for Barack Obama’s destruction of our constitutional republic.

As a young lawyer, Hillary was fired from the Congressional Watergate Committee staff for allegedly falsifying documents.

The Republican Party’s arrogant scheme to select the 2016 GOP presidential candidate years ahead of the election and attempt to force the party electorate to like and support their choice has become a disaster. Their choice was Jeb Bush. Predictably, the electorate has rejected Bush three months before the first primary election, and the fallout is threatening to tear the party apart.

Unfortunately, Bush, who is a capable individual with some unpopular ideas, is the unintended victim of the RNC who intended to assure his nomination, but instead assured his demise.
