Over the last four fiscal years, $1.4 million in tax dollars flowed through three state social services agencies to an equestrian center operated by Lander University, a small, public liberal arts school in Greenwood.

But an investigation by The Nerve found that relatively little was spent to directly help S.C. citizens served by those state agencies. In fact, not one cent of $500,000 that Lander received last fiscal year was spent for a mandated veterans’ therapy program that was supposed to operate at the equestrian center but never was implemented.

The whole point of disaster relief is to help communities cope with loss -- not create more! Too bad Democrats don't agree. When Congress got together earlier this spring to deal with the fallout from the string of storms and wildfires, the last thing anyone should've worried about was a radical social agenda hijacking the entire process. But liberals can't help themselves. They see a big pot of money and their minds automatically go to one thing: abortion.

China Agression - The New American

China has long used Western capital to challenge the might of the West. Now it is moving forcefully, making demands of companies and countries, expanding its influence.        

In 2015, the most overlooked communist revolution in history took place. That was the year that communists seized power in the Himalayan nation of Nepal via ballot-box revolution. For a decade, from 1996 to 2006, the Maoist Communist Party of Nepal, with the not-so-covert backing of the Chinese, waged a bitter civil war against the Nepalese government, seeking to overthrow the monarchy and replace it with a People’s Republic. The insurgency included a number of attacks on foreign trekkers in the popular mountaineering and hiking destination.
