Update: 11/18/20 – The S.C. Public Service Commission today voted to hold two additional public hearings in the first week of January on Dominion Energy’s proposed electric rate hike. The hearings will be held from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 5, and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 7. Participants can either phone in their testimony or attend in person at either hearing. In-person testimony will be held in the PSC hearing room at 101 Executive Center Drive, Columbia; one person at a time will be allowed in the room to testify, and the room will be cleaned between witnesses to comply with public health guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Witnesses must register by no later than 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 6, by either emailing the PSC at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or calling the agency at 803-896-5133; witnesses will be asked to give their name and a phone number for the PSC to call to receive testimony. The PSC also required Dominion to give notice of the additional hearings to its customers by Dec. 1.

“No.”

That was the collective response by the small number of Dominion Energy electric customers who testified at last week’s virtual hearings about whether they supported the utility giant’s proposed nearly 8% rate hike.

It’s unknown whether the seven-member state Public Service Commission, which hosted the hearings, will allow more public comment before it issues its final order by Feb. 15.

James Dobson 2020

There is a heaviness within my spirit today on behalf of our beloved nation. I’m sure I share that sentiment with many of you. In a sense, Shirley and I are also grieving over the potential passing of an era, during which I believe God gave America a spiritual reprieve. President Donald Trump was partially responsible for this crucial change of trajectory.

SCOTTSDALE, Az. -- An unbreakable chain of prayer has been surrounding the nation's election for the last several weeks as part of IPrayRadio.org. In that time, The Presidential Prayer Team captured and shared member prayers allowing anyone to listen and pray along. These prayers have surpassed two million listens as the people of America, and, indeed around the globe, have poured out their hearts to God on behalf of the nation and its leaders.

President Donald J. Trump 2020

This could happen if the Supreme Court overturns enough of Biden votes, that he does not have sufficient to achieve the 270 electoral votes to win the election.

We don’t know yet if this will happen, but with the many recounts, investigations into fraud, and court challenges it is a possibility.

If neither candidate receives the required 270 electoral votes, then the Twelfth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution outlines what happens. “…if no person have such majority (of elector votes), then…the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President.” But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having ONE vote.” A quorum of members from two-thirds of the states is required.

They flooded downtown D.C. holding patriotic flags and signs, a mass of Americans filling the streets to show their support for the president. The media would ignore them, of course -- but the sea of Million MAGA marchers, like the dozens of campaign rallies leading up to the election, would be hard to overlook. Chants of "Count every vote!" rang out -- a cry echoed in courtrooms across the states, where the Trump campaign fights on. Whether his efforts will be enough to save his presidency, no one knows. But could they save an election system bogged down by doubts and questions? That, in the long run, may be just as important.
