Republican Presidential Candidate Dr. Ben Carson pulled double duty in Greenville, Friday, 13 November 2015. He began the day speaking to a breakfast meeting of about 250 Republican Women and their guests at the Global Trade Center. Dr. Carson took time to shake hands and greet virtually everyone in attendance. His address was mostly about personal relationships, truth and well thought-out solutions to complex problems. He did not venture into domestic and foreign policy issues.

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.”

With President Obama in Denial and Determined to Bring in as Many as 200,000 Muslim Refugees from Syria and Elsewhere,  Private Citizens Seek Help from State and Local Government

Concerned citizens around the world are alarmed at the casual attitude the American president has taken in response to the slaughter of 129 innocent people in Paris by Islamic Terrorists. Similar attacks have and could again take place in America at any time.  Local citizens and elected officials are calling on the Governor and County Council to stop the flow of potential Islamic terrorists into local communities as refugees. Governor Haley and Greenville County Council Chairman Dr. Bob Taylor appear fully in support of the refugee program with no inclination to budge. Citizens will attempt to change their minds.

World Relief Director Addressed Council Committee of Whole but Had Few Answers to Questions.


Citizens asked Greenville County  Council during their last two meetings to pass a resolution asking Governor Haley to suspend acceptance of refugees relocated through World Relief until questions regarding security and funding are answered.

Such a resolution has been passed by Pickens County  Council, The Greenville County Republican Party Executive Committee and the Greenville County Republican Women’s Club.

Council invited Jason Lee, Director of the Upstate Office of World Relief to address their Committee of the Whole Tuesday, November 3rd.

Lee spoke briefly in general terms and council members asked questions. Councilman Willis Meadows asked the most questions using a brochure from a meeting in Spartanburg as a guide. Meadows and Joe Dill attended a meeting on the World Relief refugee program last month.

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.

Delegation Members Urged Media to Make Pubic Aware of Health System Board Attempt to Give Away Billions of Dollars in County Taxpayer Assets

The massive Greenville Health System is property of the taxpayers of Greenville County.    The original Greenville General Hospital was owned by the City of Greenville. As the old facility became inadequate to meet the needs of the County, Greenville County taxpayers provided $82 million dollars to help finance Greenville Memorial and satellite hospitals in Greer, Simpsonville and Travelers Rest.

In recent decades, the hospital system has generated sufficient cash to mount major construction projects and purchase numerous medical practices. The original $82 million investment is currently worth billions.

George Soros Funded Study Declared “Right Wing” Extremism more Dangerous to Americans than Islamic Terrorists

“The Obama Justice Department  has stooped to a new low by teaming up with an organization of dubious credibility – the Southern Poverty Law Center – to combat domestic terrorism,” said Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Center.

The FRC has felt the sting of the terror caused by the activities of the SPLC.

On August 15, 2012, Floyd Corkins burst into the FRC office in Washington, D.C. armed with a pistol and a bag full of Chick-fil-A sandwiches. His mission that day was to kill as many FRC employees as possible and then “smother the faces” of each corpse with a Chick-fil-A sandwich. Corkins, was an alleged homosexual with a history of mental health issues. His motivation was that he had allegedly read on the Southern Poverty Law Center website that Chic-fil-A and Family Research Center were “anti-gay” hate groups.
