"Forty acres, and a mule?" This date in history: On Jan. 16, 1865, Union Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman issued Special Field Order No. 15, which decreed that 400,000 acres of land in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida would be confiscated, divided into 40-acre lots and given to former slaves. (The order, which was later revoked by President Andrew Johnson, is believed to have inspired the expression, "Forty acres and a mule.") 1547 Ivan IV of Russia (popularly known as "Ivan the Terrible") was crowned Czar. 1883 the U.S. Civil Service Commission was established. 1920 Prohibition began in the United States as the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution took effect, one year to the day after its ratification. (It was later repealed by the 21st Amendment.)

FEAR FACTS: Messenger for the Devil -Lavinia Fisher The first female serial killer in the United States is believed to be Lavinia Fisher. She is thought to have been born in 1793; however, there is no official record of her birth or birthplace and no maiden name. She is said to have come from the one of the early pioneer settlements. She was married to John Fisher who was also her partner in crime. Together they owned and operated the Six Mile Wayfarer Inn of Charleston, South Carolina. At the time South Carolina was considered the most aristocratic state in the union. The Antebellum period was a beautiful and genteel time in American History. Lavinia presented herself as the true Southern bell. She was beautiful, charming and accepted into high society despite her sometime tough exterior. There is no wonder that when traveling men began to disappear no one gave much notice. The Fishers were well known and respected throughout Charleston. The Six Mile Wayfarer Inn was given its name because it was locate ...

It always stops my blood...when Black Americans have never heard of Queen TinkaTeker II Her 8 children were among the 1st slaves in United States and Barbados. Her 6 sons were the 1st slaves in Vermont, New York, New Hamsphire and her 2 daughters (taken to Barbados) were raped...then their Mulatto offspring were sold to South Carolina. Queen TinkaTeker II was killed by fire circa 1628 when she ordered her army to drown over 40 Dutch children whose parents were missionary settlers in what is now GAMBIA.this was retaliation for her 8 children mysteriously disappearing from the beach. She was burned at the stake by her own tribe, the Serahuli on orders of the Dutch. Queen TinkaTeker II's sister, Queen Ambi was one of the first slaves in Jamaica. Queen TinkaTeker II was the wife of King Teker, one of the Kings who brought Islam to Gambi. He was away on business in North Africa for several years when his children by Tinka were stolen and she got burned alive. I am appalled that Black Americans have not been to ...

MATILDA UPDATE: Thanks to all of those who came to the aid of Matilda yesterday by giving a generous monetary donation. We've almost halfway reached our goal with $1,045 raised so far. We hope that you continue to spread the word so we can reach our goal of $2,500 to offset the cost of her surgery. Let's get Matilda back on her paws!!

“The image of democracy itself” “I confess that in America I saw more than America; I sought the image of democracy itself, with its inclinations, its character, its prejudices, and its passions,” wrote Alexis de Tocqueville, the Frenchman who traveled America in 1831–32 and published his impressions in his famous Democracy in America. His amused but admiring description of civic life in the young republic provides a wonderful yardstick: The political activity which pervades the United States must be seen in order to be understood. No sooner do you set foot upon the American soil than you are stunned by a kind of tumult. . . . Everything is in motion around you; here, the people of one quarter of a town are met to decide upon the building of a church; there, the election of a representative is going on; a little further the delegates of a district are posting to the town to consult upon some local improvements; or in another place the laborers of a village quit their plows to deliberate upon the ...
Happy National Poinsettia Day! That's Poinsettia with an "ia", not Poinsetta with an "a". This traditional holiday plant originates from Mexico where it grows more like a shrub. It was brought to this country by the first US ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett, back in 1820. When visiting Mexico, he found the flowers growing on a hillside and sent some back home to South Carolina. They grew so well in his greenhouse that he began giving them out. Today, 90% are exported from the United States. If you are wondering if what you heard is true? No, they are not poisonous. They are if you eat enough of them, but you would get a tummy ache before that would happen. I get asked all the time and would eat one as an example. Easy care plant! This is a live plant folks so don't decorate with them. Just place them in a bright location out of direct sunlight and water when dry to the touch. If you do have a family or holiday event, move them into location at that time.

Slavery era Main articles: Slavery in the United States and Atlantic slave trade The first African slaves arrived in the present-day United States as part of the San Miguel de Gualdape colony (most likely located in the Winyah Bay area of present-day South Carolina), founded by Spanish explorer Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón in 1526.[11] The ill-fated colony was almost immediately disrupted by a fight over leadership, during which the slaves revolted and fled the colony to seek refuge among local Native Americans. De Ayllón and many of the colonists died shortly afterwards of an epidemic and the colony was abandoned. The settlers and the slaves who had not escaped, returned to Haiti, whence they had come.[11] In 1565, the colony of Saint Augustine in Florida, founded by Pedro Menendez de Aviles, became the first permanent European settlement in North America. It included an unknown number of free and enslaved Africans that were part of this colonial expedition.[citation needed] The first recorded Africans in ...

Mosque in NC Omar ibn Sayyid (1770-1864) ibn Said was born in present-day Senegal in Futa Tooro,[1] a region along the Middle Senegal River in West Africa, to a wealthy family.[2] He was an Islamic scholar and a Fula who spent 25 years of his life studying with prominent Muslim scholars, learning subjects ranging from arithmetic to theology in Africa. In 1807, he was captured during a military conflict, enslaved and taken across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States. He escaped from a cruel master in Charleston, South Carolina, and journeyed to Fayetteville, North Carolina. There he was recaptured and later sold to James Owen. Said lived into his mid-nineties and was still a slave at the time of his death in 1864. He was buried in Bladen County, North Carolina. Omar ibn Said was also known as Uncle Moreau and Prince Omeroh."
PART 4 Why the Founders Wanted the Federal Government Excluded from All Problems Relating to Religion and Churches The Supreme Court has stated on numerous occasions that, to most people, freedom of religion is the most precious of all the inalienable rights, next to life itself. When the United States was founded, there were many Americans who were not enjoying freedom of religion to the fullest possible extent. At least seven of the states had officially established religions or denominations at the time the Constitution was adopted. These included: Connecticut (Congregational Church) New Hampshire (Protestant faith) Delaware (Christian faith) New Jersey (Protestant faith) Maryland (Christian faith) South Carolina (Protestant faith) Massachusetts (Congregational Church) Under these circumstances the Founders felt it would have been catastrophic, and might have precipitated civil strife, if the Federal Government had tried to establish a national policy on religion or disestablish the denominations which ...
David Walker was an outspoken Afrikan abolitionist and anti-slavery activist. In 1829, while living in Boston, Massachusetts, he published "An Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World", a call for Black unity and self-help in the fight against oppression and injustice. Early life and education Walker was born on September 28, 1796 in the Cape Fear area of Ohio. His mother was free and his father, who had died before his birth, had been enslaved. As Walker's mother was free, David was born free. He witnessed the cruelty of slavery in the region and said: "If I remain in this bloody land, I will not live long… I cannot remain where I must hear slaves' chains continually and where I must encounter the insults of their hypocritical enslavers." As a young adult, he moved to Charleston, South Carolina, a mecca for upwardly mobile free Blacks. He became affiliated with a strong African Methodist Episcopal Church community of activists, members of the first black denomination in the United States. He visite ...
Exciting News! South Carolina is named 3rd best state in the country for doing business! It makes me proud that our people continue to be our biggest asset. "Probably the most consistent advantage of South Carolina is the quality of its workforce. South Carolina is a right-to-work state with a low unionization rate of 3.3 percent overall, and — at 1.3 percent — the lowest unionization rate in the United States for the private sector."

Cherokees / Cherokee Cherokees (in English: Cherokee in Cherokee: ah-ni-yv-wi-ya) are the Native Americans who inhabited the present territory of the states of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia in the Southeastern United States when Europeans made contact with them in the sixteenth century. Subsequently, most of the Cherokees were forced to move to the Ozark Plateau (Oklahoma). The Cherokees were one of the people who gathered in the "Five Civilized Tribes". origins There are two prevailing views about the origin of the Cherokee. One is that the Cherokee, a people of Iroquoian language, were behind in terms of the Appalachian South, which might have migrated in late prehistoric times from northern areas, the traditional territory of the later Haudenosaunee five nations and other peoples of Iroquois speech. Researchers in the nineteenth century recorded conversations with elders who recounted an oral tradition of the Cherokee people migrating south from the ...
The Black Seminoles are a small offshoot of the Gullah slaves who escaped from the rice plantations in South Carolina and Georgia. They built their own settlements on the Florida frontier, fought a series of wars to preserve their freedom, and were scattered across North America. They have played a significant role in American History, but have never received the recognition they deserve. Today, Black Seminole descendants live primarily in rural communities within the reservation of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma; its two Freedmen's bands are represented on the General Council of the Nation. Other centers are in Florida, Texas, the Bahamas and Northern Mexico. Since the 1930s, the Seminole Freedmen have struggled with cycles of exclusion from the Seminole Tribe of Oklahoma.[1] In 1990, the tribe received the majority of a $46 million judgment trust by the United States, for seizure of lands in Florida in 1823, and the Freedmen have worked to gain a share of it. In 2004 the US Supreme Court ruled the Semi ...
Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II. The Convict Lease System by Frederick Douglass. Taken from the third chapter of "The Reason why the colored American is not in the World's Columbian Exposition," published in 1893. The Convict Lease System and Lynch Law are twin infamies which flourish hand in hand in many of the United States. They are the two great outgrowths and results of the class legislation under which our people suffer to -day. Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Washington claim to be too poor to maintain state convicts within prison walls. Hence the convicts are leased out to work for railway contractors, mining companies and those who farm large plantations. These companies assume charge of the convicts, work them as cheap labor and pay the states a handsome revenue for their labor. Ninetenths of these convicts are Negroes. There are two rea ...

DeVore attended segregated schools until she was nine, and then moved to Winston-Salem to live with her mother's brother, John. Two years later she moved to New York City to stay with her great-aunt Stella Carter. This prevented any future educational interruptions due to her father's travel schedule.

HOUSE PASSES VA COMPROMISE BILL Senate now urged to pass H.R. 3230 this week WASHINGTON — The U.S. House Of Representatives overwhelmingly passed H.R. 3230 today by a vote of 420-5, paving the way to provide more than $15 billion in emergency funding to help the Department of Veterans Affairs overcome the crisis in care and confidence veterans have in their VA. In a letter to Congress this morning, John W. Stroud, the national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, urged every member of the House and Senate to vote "yes" on the H.R. 3230, the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014. “New VA Secretary Robert McDonald will need every tool available to fix what's broken, hold people accountable, and to restore the faith of veterans in their VA,” he wrote. “Your vote is key to the VA healing itself.” “The VFW salutes those 420 members of the House for putting veterans first,” said Stroud. “Now we need the U.S. Senate to finish the job so that H.R. 3230 c ...

Today In Black History • July 3, 1844 Macon Bolling Allen became the first African American licensed to practice law in the United States after passing the State of Maine bar exam and earning his recommendation. Allen was born Allen Macon Bolling August 4, 1816 in Indiana. He grew up a free man and learned to read and write on his own. In the early 1840s, he moved to Portland, Maine where he earned his license to practice law. However, because White people were unwilling to have a Black man represent them in court, in 1845 Allen moved to Boston, Massachusetts. Allen passed the Massachusetts bar exam that same year and he and Robert Morris, Jr. opened the first Black law office in the U. S. In 1848, Allen passed another exam to become Justice of the Peace for Middlesex County. After the Civil War, Allen moved to Charleston, South Carolina and in 1873 was appointed Judge in the Inferior Court of Charleston. The next year, he was elected Judge Probate for Charleston County. Later, Allen moved to Washington ...

The 11:00pm location for Tropical Storm Arthur is 27.9 north and 79.2 west which is about 90 miles east of Cape Canaveral, Florida. The maximum sustained winds remain at 50 mph and the present movement is to the north at 2 mph. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for the East Coast of Florida from Fort Pierce to Flagler Beach. Interests along the United States East Coast from Florida north through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and southeast Virginia should monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Arthur. At 11:00pm Tuesday night, data from the Melbourne, FL, radar indicates that Tropical Storm Arthur is undergoing some changes and has taken on a complex structure. At the mid levels of the atmosphere, the radar sees a possible “eye” beginning to take shape with the thunderstorms now beginning to close in a circle around that eye. At the low levels of the atmosphere, the radar looks like that “eye” is about 25 to 30 miles west of that mid level center of circulation. It could be that the “ ...

Summerton, South Carolina was not the only place dealing with discrimination in school bus transportation. African American Floridians also faced segregated schools and school buses. Whereas white children took one bus to get to school, African Americans would take as many as three different buses to arrive at the same place. The first eight students to integrate Leon County Schools shared their experiences in the exhibit "They Led the Way". Melodee Thompson, one of the first eight, went to Kate Sullivan Elementary School in 1963. In order to get there, she had to travel by bus to Lincoln High School with her sister and then ride another bus with the three black High School students going to Leon. After they were dropped off, the driver took her alone the last few blocks to Kate Sullivan. Brown vs. Board of Education brought these issues to light not only in South Carolina, but all over the United States.
Lest We forget: The execution of George Junius Stinney, Jr. at age 14, the youngest person ever executed in the United States in the 20th century. Stinney, born on October 21, 1929 in South Carolina, was convicted of the first-degree murder of two pre-teen white girls: 11-year-old Betty June Binnicker, and 8-year-old Mary Emma Thames; however, no physical evidence existed in the case, and the sole evidence against Stinney was the circumstantial fact the girls had spoken with Stinney and his sister shortly before their murder, and the testimony of three police officers, who testified at a trial which lasted barely two hours, that Stinney had confessed to the murders. He was executed by electric chair. Since Stinney's conviction and execution, the question of his guilt, the validity of his confession, and the judicial process leading to his execution have been criticized as "suspicious at best and a miscarriage of justice at worst" Case background Stinney was arrested on suspicion of murdering two girls, Be ...

Nature Awareness 6/13/2014 - Armadillo Armadillos are New World placental mammals, known for having a leathery armor shell. There are approximately ten extant genera and around 20 extant species of armadillo, some of which are distinguished by the number of bands on their armor. All species are native to the Americas, where they inhabit a variety of environments. In the United States, the sole resident armadillo is the nine-banded armadillo which is most common in the central southernmost states, particularly Texas. Their range is as far east as South Carolina and Florida and as far north as Nebraska; they have been consistently expanding their range over the last century due to a lack of natural predators and have been found as far north as southern Illinois and Indiana. As a totem animal, it is said that the armadillo’s medicine resides in its body as it wears its armor on its back. Its boundaries of safety are reinforced as a part of its total being. In working with the armadillo it becomes important ...
York County Conservatives! As a student of the great state of South Carolina, I care deeply for the future of our state.

Folks, a vote for General Livingston is a vote for greatness for the future of South Carolina!
It was early before sunrise on the morning of April 12, 1861 when the artillery batteries surrounding the Charleston Harbor opened fire on Fort Sumter. The cannon fire was relentless, lighting up the dark southern sky. Folks woke up to the fireworks display but no one was surprised that this day had come. It was a game of chicken between the US Government and the newly formed provincial government now being called The Confederate States of America. South Carolina had declared it's succession from the union back on December 20, 1860 soon after Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th president of the United States. Lincoln swore that the preservation of the union was paramount. For many his election was seen as certain Civil War. Six other states succeeded and in February of 1861 they had formed The Confederate States of America with it's capital in Montgomery, AL. It was in December 26, 1860 that Major Robert Anderson have moved his small band of troops from nearby Fort Moultrie to the island stronghold of Fo ...
"Almost one-third of all Southern families owned slaves. In Mississippi and South Carolina it approached one half. The total number of slave owners was 385,000 (including, in Louisiana, some free Negroes). As for the number of slaves owned by each master, 88% held fewer than twenty, and nearly 50% held fewer than five. (A complete table on slave-owning percentages is given at the bottom of this page.. The figures given here are the percentage of slave-owning families as a fraction of total free households in the state. The data was taken from a census archive site at the University of Virginia..." is far more slave owning than apologists of slavery like to admit South Carolina had the highest percentage...no wonder they were the first to succeed. I860 Census on Slavery in the United States (unless otherwise noted, all data is as of the 1860 census) Total number of slaves in the Lower South : 2,312,352 (47% of total population).

For centuries the Igbo have been known for their intelligence, courage, audacity, high sense of justice, unalloyed commitment to freedom and liberty, outspokenness, industry, entrepreneurial ability. They demonstrated these qualities all over the world. When they were shipped as slaves to South Carolina and Georgia in the United Stated some of them walked off the ship, straight into the Atlantic Ocean and drowned rather than be made slaves. That incident is still celebrated in South Carolina as Igbo Landing. In Virginia , USA the revolt of Igbo slaves was legendary. They will never go down without a fierce fight. Booker T. Washington, Paul Robeson, and numerous other revolutionary and powerful African Americans were Igbo. In fact it is estimated that at least 60% of the descendants of African Slaves in the United States is of Igbo ancestry.

What do the colors mean on the Confederate Battle Flag? The Confederate flag today was the last of four flags flown by the Confederacy. While design of the flags changed, each flag used the same colors as the American flag: red, white and blue. This decision is credited to Southern Gen. Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard. The Confederate flag in all its designs flew from 1861 to 1865, first flying in South Carolina. The original flag was known as the "Stars and Bars." The square flag had seven stars representing the seven states that seceded from the United States. But the most-recognized flag of the era is what is known as the "Confederate Battle Flag." Red - While the meaning of the color red in the Confederate flags remained the same, the size and usage of the color changed throughout its transformations. Red represented the valor of the Confederacy. As in the case of the original United States flag, it represented hardiness and the willingness to sacrifice. Red was used as a background of the most popu ...
Isaac Woodward Jr., (March 18, 1919 – September 23, 1992) was an African American World War II veteran who was attacked by South Carolina police in 1946, while still in uniform, hours after being honorably discharged from the United States Army. His attack and injuries sparked national outrage and galvanized the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. The attack by South Carolina police left Woodard completely and permanently blind. Due to the state of South Carolina's reluctance to pursue the case, President Harry S. Truman ordered a federal investigation. On September 19, 1946, seven months after the incident, NAACP Executive Secretary Walter Francis White met with President Harry S. Truman in the Oval Office to discuss the Woodard case. Gardner writes that when Truman "heard this story in the context of the state authorities of South Carolina doing nothing for seven months, he exploded." The following day, Truman wrote a letter to Attorney General Tom C. Clark demanding that action be taken to ad ...
Apr 12, 1861: Fort Sumter fired upon /The Civil War begins The bloodiest four years in American History begin when Confederate shore batteries under General P.G.T. Beauregard open fire on Union-held Fort Sumter in South Carolina's Charleston Bay. During the next 34 hours, 50 Confederate guns and mortars launched more than 4,000 rounds at the poorly supplied fort. On April 13, U.S. Major Robert Anderson surrendered the fort. Two days later, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation calling for 75,000 volunteer soldiers to quell the Southern "insurrection." As early as 1858, the ongoing conflict between North and South over the issue of slavery had led Southern leadership to discuss a unified separation from the United States. By 1860, the majority of the slave states were publicly threatening secession if the Republicans, the anti-slavery party, won the presidency. Following Republican Abraham Lincoln's victory over the divided Democratic Party in November 1860, South Carolina immediately initia ...

"The issue is prejudice. Atheists are one of the most maligned groups in the United States, especially in the Bible Belt where the first question someone asks upon meeting you is, “So where do you go to church?” According to polls, being atheist is less acceptable in America than being *** Muslim or Jewish. Heck, even Haley and Shealy can accept a Jewish director of Social Services, but apparently not an atheist one. Last fall, a group of atheists in Spartanburg, South Carolina, were excluded from volunteering at a soup kitchen. Its executive director said she’d resign from her job before she would let atheists volunteer, which she said would be a “disservice to this community,” adding that the Christian organization that runs the soup kitchen “stands on the principles of God.” Apparently, allowing others to help the less fortunate goes against her Christian principles. So what did the Upstate Atheists do? They raised over $2000 to give care packages to homeless people across the street fro ...
Brookland Foundation Registration Opening Soon for "Healthy Horizons: Family Fitness Fun" for July 2014 Family Program: Healthy Horizons: Family Fitness Fun. Program Developers: Brookland Foundation Health & Wellness Program Support for Program: In South Carolina 65% of all adults are either overweight or obese. Overweight and obesity and the associated risk factors of unhealthy eating and inadequate amounts of physical activity increase the risk for developing other chronic conditions and diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, arthritis, sleep apnea, and depression. These chronic conditions result in a significant toll to the health care system. The total cost of obesity in the United States was $117 billion in 2000. Obesity-attributable medical costs for South Carolina alone reached over one billion dollars in 2003.

On an average day, air traffic controllers handle 28,537 commercial flights (major and regional airlines), 27,178 general aviation flights (private planes), 24,548 air taxi flights (planes for hire), 5,260 military flights and 2,148 air cargo flights (Federal Express, UPS, etc.). At any given moment, right this very moment, roughly 5,000 planes are in the skies above the United States. Each day controllers handle an average of 87,671 flights over the United States. Here's a satellite image [1] showing a typical day of contrail flight paths across the central portion of the United States. The image shows highly persistent contrails from national and international flights coming and going above the coasts of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and into Alabama but it only shows 300 or 400 contrails of a potential 87,671. Some of the contrails are still thin. Some have widened and formed into hazier and wider lines. Some have banded together and formed wide hazes. Some start and stop because we can see that air ...
A Brief History of 33 Entering the historical period, we find hovering near the 33rd parallel a number of provocative synchronicities. For instance, the first Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction of the United States, was established in 1801 at Charleston, South Carolina. This charming antebellum port city and hub of southern culture is located less than 15 miles south of the 33rd parallel. Called the Solomon Lodge No. 1, the Masonic meeting place was known as the Mother Lodge of the world. [51] Shortly before the end of World War II Franklin D. Roosevelt died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage at Warm Springs, Georgia, which is less than 10 miles south of 33 degrees latitude. (This town, incidentally, is located about 35 miles northeast of Phenix City, Alabama.) It is noteworthy (no pun intended) that in the mid-30s FDR, a 32nd degree Mason and 32nd President of the U.S., initiated the printing of the reverse side of the Great Seal (the pyramidal ...
Gaston, South Carolina is a lonely little place. Sitting just south of Columbia along 321, it’s just a small crumb off of the misshapen piece of pie on the United States plate that we call South Carolina. Its population has almost never gone over two thousand, and it is only 3.4 square miles across in all directions. It feels even lonelier when you come in from a place like Roanoke, Virginia. After mom lost her job, we moved to the only place where the rest of our family resided—Good ol’ South Cackalacky. I had been moping on the trip the whole time on the way down here. The way I saw it, the only friends I was going to be making here were fire ants and that inferno of a sun. Once we got settled in at 304 Dixiana Drive (I always remembered the address because the number in it was carved into the driveway, and it spelled *** if you looked at it upside down), I immediately set out into the neighborhood in search of friends. I didn’t know how to ride a bike at the time and I barely knew how to ...
Multimillionaire and financier Bernard Baruch, in a speech given during the unveiling of his portrait in the South Carolina House Of Representatives, coins the term "Cold War" to describe relations between the United States and the Soviet Union.
Cold War” term coined Their common enely defeated and split between the victors, the year 1945 also marked the end of any serious efforts at cooperation between Russia and the United States. An uneasy truce developed, with American threats of nuclear weapons holding back the surging Red Army at bay. Political scientists had not yet come up with a dominant theory of the USSR’s motivations, but everyone was terrified in the knowledge that America’s nuclear supremacy was a very short-lived thing. What would happen after, no one could put into words — though one almost accidental phrase stood out. On this day, April 16, 1947 Bernard Baruch, the multimillionaire financier and advisor to President Truman, stepped in front of the South Carolina general assembly to address the state of relations between the two countries. “Let us not be deceived — we are today in the midst of a Cold War,” he said. “Our enemies are to be found abroad and at home. Let us never forget this: Our unrest is the heart ...
The First Muslim-American Scholar: Bilali Muhammad - An unfortunate misconception among today’s American Muslim community is that Islam has only been present in America for less than 100 years. Many American Muslims are children of immigrants who came to the United States from the Middle East and South Asia in the mid-nineteenth century, and thus wrongly assume that the first Muslims in America were those immigrants. The reality, however, is that Islam has been in America for far longer than that. Besides possible pre-Colombian Muslim explorers from al-Andalus and West Africa, Islam arrived on America’s shores in waves through the Atlantic slave trade from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. While hundreds of thousands of slaves arrived in America during this time, the stories of only a few have been preserved and are known today. One of the most enduring and unique is that of Bilali Muhammad. The Slave Trade A slave auction advertisement from Charleston, South Carolina in 1769. A slave auctio ...
April 12, 1861-- Then on the northern states were called the Union and the southern states were called the Confederate. President Abraham Lincoln said he would fight with everything he had to keep the south states as a part of the United States. There then was a argument because there was a Union fort on Confederate land. The Confederate demanded that the Union soldiers leave there forts in Charleston, South Carolina,the fort was called Fort Sumter. The Union refused to leave the fort, and so what the Confederate decided to do was fire cannons at the fort on April 12, 1861. This was the beginning of the Civil War.
The Shawnee or Shawnee nation (Shaawanwaki, Ša˙wano˙ki and Shaawanowi lenaweeki[2]) are an Algonquian-speaking people native to North America. In colonial times they were a semi-migratory Native American nation, at times inhabiting areas spanning present-day Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Western Maryland, South Carolina, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, and Pennsylvania in the United States. They were removed to Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River in the 1830s. Today the three federally recognized Shawnee tribes: Absentee-Shawnee Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma, Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, and Shawnee Tribe, are all headquartered in Oklahoma.

On this Day in Weather History. *In 1936, the second of a 2 day tornado outbreak continued in Georgia and South Carolina. The worst event, was a pair of massive F4 tornadoes that merged as they roared through downtown Gainesville, Georgia in the morning. These tornadoes killed 203, injured an incredible 1,600, and caused around $13 million damage; the equivalent of $200 million today. The highest death toll in one building from a single tornado in the United States, occurred when 70 were killed at the Cooper Pants Factory. The wreckage was astounding, with debris piled 10 feet deep in some places. The 203 listed fatalities make the Gainesville Tornado the 5th deadliest in United States history, but the wreckage was so deep, and swept by so many fires, that the actual death toll may never be known. *IN 1971...the low of 13 degrees established the record low for the month of April at Garden City. *IN 2001...a tornado moved rapidly northward just west of Rolla KS and destroyed a mobile home.

Forms of Divination Bone Divination Sadhvi Ayele Maat : Bone divination is the oldest form of divination known to humanity. The use of bone oracles have been documented on the caves walls in Africa as long ago as 30,000 years. The power in the method has survived through even the harshest trials including the slave trade of North America. It holds the distinction of being the only method of divination that survived all the way to the United States and stayed in popular use, the second being cowries which made it to Central America. There is documentation of archaeologist discovering deer ankle and chicken bones along with, cowrie shells, wooden buttons, unbroken eggs and beads underneath the floors of cabins and the main house indicating that they were still practicing their ancient African traditions. That these common fragments were found from South Carolina to Missouri demonstrates the scope in which it was still practiced. The organic nature of the system allows for it to be as comprehensive or as lim ...

It isn't pretty! Brandon Walker Prison Planet.com November 5, 2013 Under the radar from the prying eyes of the public, South Carolina made it legal to get rid of their homeless problem. The people were given a choice, FEMA Camps or jail. The irony of it all was this happened right at the 50th Anniversary of Civil Liberties in August. The bad part is different cities from Boston to New York are shipping off their homeless, and no one cares. Is this coming to a town near you? In August the city of Colombia, South Carolina, had a problem. A festival honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement was coming to town. They couldn’t be seen with all the homeless when guests arrived from all parts of the United States. So the city council held a vote and made homelessness a crime. The Columbia City C ...

Throughout our history, the United States of America has been blessed with outstanding leaders, starting with the Founding Fathers. Four of our best presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, are immortalized on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Other great or near-great presidents might include Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, and John Kennedy. What about great senators? In my lifetime, there have been some outstanding U.S. Senators, such as Mike Mansfield of Montana, Everett Dirksen of Illinois, Howard Baker of Tennessee, Philip Hart of Michigan, Richard Russell of Georgia, Sam Ervin of North Carolina, J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, Richard Lugar Indiana and Ernest Hollings of South Carolina. These men had a few things in common: courage, integrity, knowledge and wisdom. Moreover, they were able to rise above politics, putting the good of our nation as a whole ahead of partisan, parochial or personal interests. Although the true merits o ...
Open questions to SC Senator, Lindsey Graham: Did you take geography in class? Just what part of the configuration of this earth would lead you to believe that either Russia or Ukraine are enough of a part of the United States that any policy of this country's president could have any guaranteed effect on the politics of those countries? And, dear Lindsey, why don't you come up with something "positive" instead of always being so asinine, stupid and negative. You embarrass the people of South Carolina. Oh well - guess I got a little ticked off…..
Born in Ireland, Pierce Bulter came to the United States as an officer in the British Army. During the Revolutionary War he fought for American Independence. After the war, he served in the Continental Congress. Later, he, like Charles Pinckney, served as one of South Carolina's four delegates to the Constitutional Convention. At the Convention, he advocated for a strong, central state that could adequately defend itself. He also defended the institution of slavery, advocating for the Fugitive Slave Clause and encouraging other delegates to accept a provision that would count all slaves in the population when determining how many representatives each state would have (instead, the Convention adopted the 3/5 compromise, counting each slave as 3/5 of a person). He also served in the Senate. Through his time in the Senate, Butler made several abrupt political changes. He begun as a Federalist, split to join the Jeffersonian Republicans in 1795, and ultimately declared himself a political independent in ...
Denmark Vesey, originally Telemaque, (1767 – July 2, 1822) was an African-American man who was most famous for planning a Slave Rebellion in the United States in 1822. He was enslaved in South Carolina. After purchasing his freedom, he planned an extensive Slave Rebellion. Word of the plans was leaked, and authorities arrested the plot's leaders at Charleston, South Carolina, before the uprising could begin. Vesey and others were convicted and executed. Many antislavery activists came to regard Vesey as a hero. During the American Civil War, abolitionist Frederick Douglass used Vesey's name as a battle cry to rally African-American regiments, especially the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Although it was almost certainly not Vesey's actual home, the Denmark Vesey House at Charleston was named a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
Robert Smalls (April 5, 1839 – Feb. 23, 1915) Robert Smalls was an African-American born into slavery in Beaufort, S.C., but during and after the American Civil War, he became a ship’s pilot, sea captain, and politician. He freed himself, his crew and their families from slavery on May 13, 1862, when he led an uprising aboard a Confederate transport ship, the CSS Planter, in Charleston Harbor, and sailed it north to freedom. His feat successfully helped persuade President Abraham Lincoln to accept African-American soldiers into the Union Army. As a politician, Smalls authored state legislation that gave South Carolina the first free and compulsory public school system in the United States.

1825-02-26 *James Skivring Smith was born on this date in 1825. He was a Black doctor and politician. A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Smith was eight years old when he came to Liberia in 1833. He was orphaned within a year of his arrival when his parents succumbed to malaria. As a young man he studied medicine under Dr. James W. Lugenbeel, the white physician with the American Colonization Society (ACS) responsible for providing medical care to the immigrants. After completing his medical training in the United States, Smith returned to Liberia as the ACS physician in 1849 in Sinou County and Bassa Cove in Grand Bassa County. Smith was first elected to the Liberian Senate from Grand Bassa County in 1855 and later became secretary of state. As the running mate of presidential candidate Edward J. Roye, he captured Liberia's vice presidency in the election of May 1869. When Roye was removed from office, Smith succeeded him and served as Liberia's sixth President from November 1871 until January 1872. ...
Today inOUR Story - February 18 * "1688 - The first formal protest against slavery by an organized white body in the English American colonies is made by Germantown, Pennsylvania Quakers and Mennonites at a monthly meeting. When some members of the Quaker community began to buy slaves, Francis Daniel Pastorius, the founder of Germantown, was outraged. On this day, Pastorius will meet with three other Germantown Quaker men to draft a denunciation of slavery. Known as "The Germantown Protest," it is regarded as the first protest against slavery by whites in the American colonies. The reasoning of the denunciation was based on the Golden Rule: since white people did not want to be slaves themselves, they had no right to enslave black African men and women. Despite the Germantown Protest, some Quaker families continued to keep slaves. Nonetheless, by the 19th century Quakers were prominent in the movement to abolish slavery in the United States. 1865 - Confederate Troops abandon Charleston, South Carolina. .. ...

I have almost given up the ship as lost, I have gone so far as to declare that if Martin Van Buren is elected that I will leave the United States for I never will live under his Kingdom. Before I will submit to his government I will go to the Wilds of Texas. I will consider that government a Paradise to what this government will before I never will...submit to his government. In fact at this time our Republican Government has dwindled almost into insignificance, our boasted land of liberty have almost bowed to the yoke of Bondage our happy days of Republican principles are near at an end when a few is to transfer the many. This is Van Buren principles. There is more slaves in New York and Pennsylvania than there is in Virginia and South Carolina and they are the meanest kind of slaves; they are volunteer slaves. ~Davy Crocket 1834
BE DISCERNING, KNOW THE TIME AND THE SEASON! Storm, bringing deadly ice and snow, slams U.S. South ATLANTA (Reuters) - A deadly winter storm potentially more destructive than the one that paralyzed Atlanta just two weeks ago gripped the southern United States on Wednesday, crippling travel, knocking out power to more than 330,000 customers and encasing magnolia trees and palmetto fronds in ice. The weather was blamed for at least 10 deaths throughout the region, including three who were killed when an ambulance transporting a patient skidded off an icy road in Carlsbad, Texas, about 240 miles (386 km) southwest of Dallas, the Texas Department of Public Safety said on Wednesday. "Oh, Lord. It's pretty slick out there," said Fred Neely, 69, a retiree living in Florence, South Carolina. More than 3,200 U.S. flights were canceled and more than 1,800 delayed early on Wednesday, according to flight-tracking website FlightAware.com. Hardest hit were Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta and Charlot ...
In 1526, the first Africans arrived in North American (United States). They came from Hispaniola (Dominican Republic). They were brought to North America by Lucas Vasquez de Ayllon, a wealthy Spanish official of Santo Domingo. In 1520, Ayllon sent an expedition to canvass the East Coast of North America. He wanted to establish friendly relations with the Native Americans. However, one of his men was a slave hunter who captured 70 of the Native Americans. This would be the first account of slavery by Europeans in what is now the United States. One of these Native Americans was Chicorana, who would later persuade the Spanish king to allow a settlement on the mainland. The king granted the request by Ayllon to establish a settlement but gave strict orders, not to enslave the Native Americans. In 1526, Ayllon sailed from Hispaniola to the North America and founded a colony at the mouth of the Pee Dee River in South Carolina, which was not his intended destination. He lost one ship and his only Native America ...
Yannis Pantazis’ life journey has taken him from his home in Northern Greece through centuries-old music made by the tsabouna, a Greek bagpipe made of goatskin and now to Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

THIS DAY IN Black History DAY South Carolina State University ORANGEBURG,SC MASSACRE FEB 8,1968 The Orangeburg massacre is the most common name given to an incident on February 8, 1968, in which nine South Carolina Highway Patrol officers in Orangeburg, South Carolina, fired into a crowd of protesters demonstrating against segregation at a bowling alley near the campus of South Carolina State College, a historically black college. Three men were killed and twenty-eight persons were injured; most victims were shot in the back.[1] One of the injured was a pregnant woman.

WHAT YOU KNOW 'BOUT JESSE.!?!?! 1984 presidential campaign Main article: Jesse Jackson presidential campaign, 1984 On November 3, 1983, he announced his campaign for President of the United States in the 1984 election, becoming the second African American (after Shirley Chisholm) to mount a nationwide campaign for president. In the Democratic Party primaries, Jackson, who had been written off by pundits as a fringe candidate with little chance at winning the nomination, surprised many when he took third place behind SenatorGary Hart and former Vice President Walter Mondale, who eventually won the nomination. Jackson garnered 3,282,431 primary votes, or 18.2 percent of the total, in 1984, and won three to five primaries and caucuses, including Louisiana, the District of Columbia, South Carolina, and one of two separate contests in Mississippi.

THERE WERE 15 AMERICAN PRESIDENTS BEFORE WASHINGTON TOOK OFFICE! Submitted by Bob Taft thru Sartre's BATR Yahoo Discussion Group May 25, 2003 FOREWORD BY DENNIS JOYCE If you access Southern Independence Party you will find additional information on this with a time line. PREFACE BY BOB TAFT: Here's the full list of Presidents that preceded George Washington, including five who presided over Congress before the ratification of the Articles. Really the United States started with ratification of the Articles of Confederation. Prior to that it was the United Colonies. So I'd still say that Geo. Washington was the 11th president of an "independent" US. The book that lists these is available from Amazon. I once filled in an SAR application but never submitted it. Perhaps they have a lot of readily accessible material on the sabotaged Old Republic. ORIGINALLY FROM: National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution -- Our Forgotten Presidents A series of leaders guided the destiny of the United States in th ...
Black History Month (DayAugustine, Florida St. Augustine, Florida, founded in 1565, is the oldest continuously occupied settlement of European and African-American origin in the United States. Although Africans were brought to the colony as slave, as early as 1687, the Spanish government had begun to offer asylum to slaves from British colonies. In 1693, the Spanish Crown officially proclaimed that runaways, usually from South Carolina would find freedom in Florida, in return for Catholic conversion and a term of four years of service to the Crown. In fact, Fort Mose (pronounced "Moh-say") was the first free black settlement, which many historians believed precipitated the 1739 “Stono Rebellion” in South Carolina, where 60 slaves killed 22-25 whites, and attempted to escape to Florida (Fort Mose). By 1964, however, St. Augustine had adapted Jim Crow policies similar to many other southern U.S. cities and towns. St. Augustine practiced resistance to racial equality at every level in society. For exam . ...

I'm going to do more research on this but in the meantime, take a look at this: What Was America’s First Black Town? by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. | Originally posted on The Root As the nation turns its attention to the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, it’s worth noting that decades before the United States was even formed, African Americans lived free in a town of their own — at least for a while. Sometime between March and November of 1738, Spanish settlers in Florida formed a town named Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose, two miles to the north of St. Augustine. Initially, it consisted of 38 men, all fugitive slaves, “most of them married,” who had fled to Florida for sanctuary and freedom from enslavement in the Carolinas and Georgia. It came to be known as Fort Mose. The enclave was the first line of defense between the Spanish settlers in Florida and their enemies, the English colonists to the north in Carolina (which did not officially split into North and South Carolina u ...
Moors Sundry Act of 1790 The Moors Sundry Act of 1790 was passed by South Carolina legislature, granting special status to the subjects of Sultan of Morocco, Mohammed ben Abdallah. It recognized Moors as white people with Jury duty as a privilege. Moors were not to be subjected to laws governing blacks and slaves.Petition from Sundry Free Moors On January 20, 1790, a petition was presented to the South Carolina House Of Representatives from a group of eight individuals who were subjects of the Moroccan emperor and residents of the colony. They desired that if they happened to commit any fault amenable to be brought to justice, that as subjects to a prince allied with the United States through the Moroccan-American Treaty of Friendship, they would be tried as citizens instead of under the *** Act of 1740. The Free Moors, Francis, Daniel, Hammond and Samuel petitioned on behalf of themselves and their wives Fatima, Flora, Sarah and Clarinda.[1] They explained how some years ago while fighting in defense o . ...

Eartha Kitt "The most exciting woman alive” Eartha Kitt was born January 17th, 1927 in the cotton fields of South Carolina, a pregnancy resulting from the rape by a white plantation owner and a sharecropper mother of African-American and Cherokee Native American descent. Given away by her mother, she arrived in Harlem at age nine, and at age 15, she quit High School to work in a Brooklyn factory. Around the age of 16, Kitt won a scholarship to study with Katherine Dunham, and later joined Dunham's dance troupe. She toured with the group for several years before going solo. In Paris, Kitt became a popular nightclub singer. She was discovered in Europe by actor-director Orson Welles. Welles, who reportedly called her "the most exciting woman alive," cast her as Helen of Troy in his production of Dr. Faustus. Upon her return to the United States, Ms. Kitt played a twenty-week run at the Blue Angel - a still unbroken record for cabaret artists; before moving on the Village Vanguard.

George A. Crispin (June 22, 1927- January 10, 2014) George A. Crispin, 86, of Auburn, AL, passed away peacefully at East Alabama Medical Center on January 10, 2014. He was born in Ogema, Saskatchewan, Canada, and was educated as an civil engineer at the University of Saskatchewan.

His employment took him to many countries, including Iran, Turkey, Vietnam, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and all over North America including Washington, Virginia, Texas, South Carolina, California and Nevada. On September 26, 1964 George married fellow world traveler Terry at Guardian Angel Catholic Church on English Bay, Vancouver, BC, Canada. He was sworn in as a United States citizen in the summer of 1990 and retired to Auburn, AL. The world travelers chose Auburn for many reasons, foremost was the close proximity of family and a great respect for the Ludwig Von Mises Institute which advocates the teachings of the Aust ...

Fought hard to keep Saigon. 1973 Saigon falls. Fast forward, history repeats in Fallujah.!!! Enough is enough...! Republican senators on Saturday blamed the Obama administration for Al Qaeda affiliates over-running parts of Iraq, including the city of Fallujah, which the United States secured before President Obama removed all U.S. forces from that country in 2011. McCain, Graham blast Obama for Al Qaeda-related takeover of Fallujah, call situation 'predictable' Sen. John Mccain, Arizona, and Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, called the recent turn of events “as tragic as they were predictable” and suggested Obama misled Americans into believing that Iraqi leaders wanted U.S. forces out of their country. “While many Iraqis are responsible for this strategic disaster, the administration cannot escape its share of the blame,” .. ...

Two Top-Ranking U.S. Military Officials Dismissed in the Same Week (And They Have Something in Common) Oct. 12, 2013 11:53am Becket Adams What do you think? I've done some digging and here is what I found in regards to this story coming out of Russia. Top Officers After Nuke Explodes In Ocean Instead Of Charleston A shocking new Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Barack Obama, while in a rage, ousted four of the United States top ranking military officers after they refused to detonate a nuclear device “in/near” Charleston, South Carolina this past week and, instead, exploded it off the Atlantic Coast. According to this report, Strategic Missile Forces Command (SMF) notified both President Putin and the General Staff this past Tuesday (8 October) that at 01:58:11 GMT/UTC an atomic device was exploded in the seabed off the US Atlantic Ocean, barely 1,000 km (620 miles) from Charleston, causing a 4.5 magnitude earthquake measurement that SMF ...

The Spectacle of Illiteracy and the Crisis of Democracy Henry A. Giroux C. Wright Mills argued 50 years ago that one important measure of the demise of vibrant democracy and the corresponding impoverishment of political life can be found in the increasing inability of a society to translate private troubles to broader public issues. [1] This is an issue that both characterizes and threatens any viable notion of democracy in the United States in the current historical moment. In an alleged post-racist democracy, the image of the public sphere with its appeal to dialogue and shared responsibility has given way to the spectacle of unbridled intolerance, ignorance, seething private fears, unchecked anger and the decoupling of reason from freedom. Increasingly, as witnessed in the utter disrespect and not-so-latent racism expressed by Joe Wilson, the Republican congressman from South Carolina, who shouted “you lie!” during President Obama’s address on health care, the obligation to listen, respect the vi ...

THEY STOLE OUR LAND The Yamasee War (also spelled Yemassee War) (1715–1717) was a conflict between British settlers of colonial South Carolina and various Native American tribes, including the Yamasee, Muscogee, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Catawba, Apalachee, Apalachicola, Yuchi, Savannah River Shawnee, Congaree, Waxhaw, Pee Dee, Cape Fear, Cheraw, and others. Some of the Native American Indian groups played a minor role while others launched attacks throughout South Carolina in an attempt to destroy the colony. Native Americans killed hundreds of colonists and destroyed many settlements. Traders "in the field" were killed throughout what is now Southeastern United States. Abandoning settled frontiers, people fled to Charles Town, where starvation set in as supplies ran low. The survival of the South Carolina colony was in question during 1715. The tide turned in early 1716 when the Cherokee sided with the colonists against the Creek, their traditional enemy. The last of South Carolina's major Native American ...
Yep, I remember that...and he was right on the money too! On September 9, 2009, Joe Wilson, Congressman from South Carolina, shouted "You lie!" when President Obama was touting the benefits of his Affordable Care Act, now dubbed "Obamacare." Many in America were shocked that anyone would call the President of the United States a liar in such a forum as a presidential address to a joint session of Congress. But, now, as we look back on 5 years of Barack Obama, we see that Obama and his Administration do lie. And they lie a lot. * Both Eric Holder and Barack Obama stated that "Fast and Furious was a program begun in the Bush Administration". That was a lie. The Bush Administration had, in fact, shut down any efforts to track illegal shipments of guns to Mexico because it was a dangerous and untenable undertaking. * Hillary Clinton, Susan Wright and Barack Obama all stated that the attack in Benghazi was caused by Islamist spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islamist video produced in the United States. We know ...

"Authoritarian Disdain" from Carolinaromance.com Story Page Our next story focuses on the government shutdown of 2013 as we go to the South Carolina low country into Charleston Harbor. On October 1, 2013, the United States Federal Government entered a shutdown after Congress failed to enact regular appropriations or a continuing resolution for the 2014 fiscal year. About 800,000 federal employees were indefinitely furloughed without pay, another 1.3 million were required to report to work without immediate pay, and many services were suspended; only those employees and services deemed "excepted" under the Antideficiency Act remained active. The most recent previous U.S. Federal Government shutdown was in 1995–96. A "funding gap" was created when the two chambers of Congress failed to agree to a compromise continuing resolution. The Republican-led House Of Representatives, pressured by conservative groups such as Heritage Action,[4][5][6] offered several continuing resolutions with language delaying or . ...

By: Manny EJR For the Edge North Carolina VOTER ID LAWS ARE RACIALLY MOTIVATED: In 1965, the United States Congress enacted the “Civil Right Act of 1965,” which included among other things sections 4 and 5 - Preclearance. These two sections applied to nine states — Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia and scores of counties and municipalities such as Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx. These two sections of the law effectively prohibited these states, and municipalities with a history of voter discrimination from changing their election laws without prior approval from the Federal Government. The law was supposed to expire within five years, however, Congress kept extended it every five years, and the last extension was in 2006. On June 25 of this year, in the case of Shelby County v. Eric Holder, the Supreme Court of the United States invalidated section 4 of the law claiming that blacks no longer need the protection of the Federal Government ...

source: slit your throat on Jolo," people told Col. Jim Linder, head of a U.S. military task force in the Philippines. He recalled the prediction as we buzzed toward Jolo Island in a helicopter. Linder, a 45-year-Old South Carolina native who has the remnants of a Southern drawl, has led Special Forces operations in the Middle East, Central and South America, Eastern Europe and Africa for the past 20 years. His latest assignment is the remote 345-square-mile island at the southernmost edge of the vast Philippines archipelago. Jolo is a known haven for Al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups, including Abu Sayyaf, or "Bearer of the Sword," which has used the island for 15 years to train terrorists and to coordinate attacks. Curiously, Jolo was also one of the first places where the United States ever battled Muslim insurgents. On March 7, 1906, less than a decade after the United States seized the Philippines in the Spanish-American War, the people of Jolo—known as Moros, after the Spanish for Moors—revolte . ...
The relative size of the English settlement was significant in determining the type of English that developed there.  In areas where English settlers were heavily outnumbered, pidgin varieties of English often developed alongside the more standard variety – forms of English unintelligible to English speakers elsewhere in the world. (Pidgin English is the name given to a makeshift language based on English but containing a high proportion of words from other languages, and having a simplified grammar and a limited vocabulary.)  There are many forms of pidgin English, spoken as second languages in order to make communication possible.  Some pidgins developed into creoles, the first languages of certain regions.  Some of the creole languages based on English are Krio (Sierra Leone), Gullah (South Carolina and Georgia in the United States), Tok Pisin (Papua New Guinea), and the creoles of the Caribbean. In some regions, such as on the South Asian subcontinent, and in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia, ...

Shawnee * The only Shawnee Native American tribe in Alabama is the Piqua Shawnee Tribe (no website; 3412 Wellford Circle; Birmingham, AL 35226), whose offices are Birmingham, Alabama. The Shawnees have been in Alabama since the 17th century and primarily live in the northern region of the state. Most Shawnees living in Alabama are descended from Shawnee Native Americans who were able to avoid the removal policy of President Andrew Jackson. Although most Piqua Shawnees live in Alabama, this tribe also has members in other states of the United States, including Ohio, South Carolina, Indiana, Tennessee and Missouri.
There are two kinds of suffering—the kind that comes from within and the kind that comes from without—but often it’s hard to sort out which is which, especially when you’ve internalized a culture designed to make you suffer. For more than twenty years I practiced various meditation methods. I was the only person of color at retreats around the country 99 percent of the time. Although I was a Vietnam Veteran and a victim of the race riots of the 1960’s in Kansas City, born into a culture built on slavery, for a long time I remained in a state of dissociation, ignorant of how I had internalized the colonization, oppression, slavery, racism, and genocide on which the United States of America is based. How could I have been so blind? I was born on Pawleys Island, South Carolina one of the Sea Islands, where many of the ships landed that brought the slaves that made this nation wealthy. Yet I was unaware that I was putting away certain aspects of myself to survive. My wakeup call came when I was an o ...
Isn't it odd that during his recent African tour, President Barack Obama announced support for a citizen ID program in Kenya - yet considers a similar effort in the United States to be racially motivated. While President Obama and his family toured the African continent earlier in the week, the White House released a Fact Sheet that promotes a $53 million U.S. taxpayer-funded program in Kenya that assists young people to "obtain National identification cards, a prerequisite to voter registration." The White House Fact Sheet states that in advance of Kenya's March 2013 general elections, the Kenyan campaign - known as "My ID My Life" - helped 500,000 youth obtain national identification cards and carried out a successful nationwide campaign with Kenyan civic organizations to elicit peace pledges from all presidential aspirants. "This is an administration, you understand, whose Justice Department struck down voter ID laws in South Carolina and Texas just before the 2012 elections and has said over and over ...
Today is Independence Day in the United States of America. On Saturday, July 5, 1777, a day after the anniversary of American Independence, the revolutionary John Adams wrote to his daughter from Philadelphia that he “was surprised to find the whole city lighting up their candles at the windows.” The year before, on July 4, 1776, representatives of the American people in 13 colonies were in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to declare independence from Great Britain. Philadelphia is still lighting up the candles as you can see in this photograph taken 236 years later from the International Space at 09:28 GMT February 6, 2012.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today sent this statement to the Russian Ambassador to the United States about the case of Edward Snowden.
Denim Fact of the Day: Eli Whitney only invented the superior version of the cotton gin in 1792 after noticing long-staple cotton (Sea Island) differed greatly from short-staple cotton (upland), and required much more labor to remove the green cotton seeds while visiting Mrs. Greene's plantation in South Carolina. The very Mrs. Greene that I speak of just so happened to be the widow of a great Revolutionary War General for the United States of America by the name of Nathaniel Greene. Greensboro remains connected to the cotton industry more than we can ever know.
Thank you Lindsey Graham! We are going in the right direction with this amendment. Read it. _ From: Lindsey Graham When people in South Carolina say, "Secure the Border," I get it. Border security has been and remains my top priority in immigration reform. Earlier today, the Senate overwhelmingly passed the Border Surge Amendment that I co-sponsored and strongly supported. LindseyGraham.com The Border Surge Amendment, which was introduced by Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and John Hoeven (R-ND), is an unprecedented border security effort designed to help us regain our sovereignty. It's already being called "the biggest investment in border security in U.S. history." There are 5 major provisions of the Border Surge Amendment, and they must ALL BE MET BEFORE illegal immigrants can gain lawful permanent resident status, known as a green card, in the United States. The provisions include: Hiring, training, and deploying an additional 20,000 Border Patrol agents on the Southern border. That is DOUBLE the Border P ...

Early American Secession Attempts Concern for states' rights and thoughts of secession were not exclusive to the South. The secession of South Carolina in December of 1860 was not the first time that secession had been dealt with in the United States. There had been several secession threats and attempts prior to 1860. Significant strains to national unity had erupted in earlier times, notably during the Missouri statehood crisis (1820-1821), the nullification controversy (1832-1833), and the aftermath of the Mexican War (1849-1850). On each of these occasions, political leaders managed to find a compromise that dissipated the danger. Inevitably, compromise proposals were now offered to avert this new possibility of Civil War. Daniel Webster Henry Clay Thomas Jefferson MASSACHUSETTS 1803: The state of Massachusetts threatened secession in 1803. They were protesting the Louisiana Purchase. Massachusetts said that this purchase would dilute their power within the Union. Many of the politicians in Massachu . ...

“From 1780 to the British surrender in 1783 the Scoffelites or Tories held out in the back country of South Carolina and Georgia, and according to the still respected pioneer American historian of Loyalism remained in the ascendancy. With the British regulars and their many thousands of newly escaped Black allies controlling the coast, and maroon power allied to the Crown in the interior, Great Britain was able to restore the colonial governments of the deep South in those years, and there was no United States political authority in the region. British government and "colored" ascendancy were never militarily overthrown in the South, but fell because of Cornwallis's disaster far in the north at Yorktown, and the decision of the British government to end the war.” “Thus to the pages of African American History are added African American battles and campaigns against slavery of greater magnitude than the Nat Turner and Stono insurrections and the brilliant plans of Denmark Vesey and Gabriel. To the hi ...

Do you know who John H. “Bill” Mock is? Following is his WWII experiences. Highly decorated soldier John H. Mock was drafted into the U.S. Army at Camp Grant near Rockford, Illinois, November 27, 1941, just five days before his 23rd birthday. Upon induction, he was sent immediately on to Camp Croft, South Carolina, for a 16-week basic training period which was cut to 14 weeks due to Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entry into the war. At a salary of $21 per month, Private Mock was sent next to Ft. Dix, New Jersey, where he joined I Company of the 135th Combat Infantry Regiment of the 34th Division. In the predawn hours of April 30, 1942, he left the United States by troop ship and on May 13 landed in Northern Ireland where he trained all that summer before leaving for an unknown destination October 22, 1942. On November 8, 1942, Mock found himself on board the sinking destroyer Malcomb, one of two destroyers carrying 600 shock troops attempting to get into the port of Algiers in time to capture the French fl ...
History Fact of the day about Myrtle Beach, SC...Technically a man-made island, Myrtle Beach has been separated from the continental United States since 1936 by the Intracoastal Waterway, forcing the city and area in general to develop within a small distance from the coast. In part due to this separation, the area directly west of Myrtle Beach across the waterway remained primarily rural, whereas its northern and southern ends were bordered by other developed tourist towns, North Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach. Since then, the inland portion of the Myrtle Beach area has developed dramatically and the beach itself is developing westward. So, now you know I live on the Island! Visit Myrtle Beach, South Carolina!

The Book of *** Someone Knows My Name. Abducted as an 11-year-old child from her village in West Africa and forced to walk for months to the sea in a coffle—a string of slaves—Aminata Diallo is sent to live as a slave in South Carolina. Years later, she forges her way to freedom, serving the British in the Revolutionary War and registering her name in the historic “Book of Negroes.” This book, an actual document, provides a short but immensely revealing record of some 3,000 Black Loyalists who left the United States for resettlement in Nova Scotia. A trained bookkeeper, Aminata is enlisted to record the names of these African-Americans travelling to Nova Scotia in pursuit of land and a new way of life. But when the Loyalists arrive in Canada in 1783, they find that the haven they’d been seeking is steeped in an oppression all its own. Aminata is among the pioneers of Nova Scotia to settle Shelburne and the neighbouring Black community of Birchtown. Her journey from slavery to liberation, and ...
Corrupt US Supreme Court has long encouraged voter fraud. Here's one. "Durational residency The Supreme Court of the United States struck down one-year residency requirements to vote in Dunn v. Blumstein 405 U.S. 330 (1972).[39] The Court ruled that limits on voter registration of up to 30 to 50 days prior to an election were permissible for logistical reasons, but that residency requirements in excess of that violated equal protection as granted under the Fourteenth Amendment according to strict scrutiny." Of course, the 14th Amendment does no such thing, the SCOTUS simply ginned up that limitation upon natives of a state out of nothing. Effectively, it gives control of some elected offices to non-citizens of a state. This is what permits university students from the Yankee north to vote in South Carolina elections. We must stop this kind of crime.
Why not in India The election dispute gave rise to a constitutional crisis. The Electoral Commission was a panel that resolved the disputed presidential election of 1876. The Electoral Commission was a temporary body created by Congress to resolve the disputed United States presidential election of 1876. It consisted of 15 members. The election was contested by the Democratic ticket, Samuel J. Tilden and Thomas A. Hendricks, and the Republican ticket, Rutherford B. Hayes and William A. Wheeler. Twenty electoral votes, from the states of Florida, Louisiana, Oregon, and South Carolina, were in dispute; the resolution of these disputes would determine the outcome of the election. Facing a constitutional crisis the likes of which the nation had never seen, Congress passed a law forming the Electoral Commission to settle the result. The Commission consisted of fifteen members: five representatives, five senators, and five Supreme Court justices. Eight members were Republicans; seven were Democrats. The Commiss ...
Frankly, I hope the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church slams these *** in South Carolina hard. There is no "Anglican" church in the United States; that died when the royalists fled to England, along with most of their parishioners. The Episcopal Church in the United States (the addition of "Protestant" is spurious). If one has disavowed one's affiliation with a certain group, one should not expect to accrue any benefits from the organization which they have disdained and publicly vilified. It's what one ought to expect for heresy.

This is how a "Leader" leads. Exercising the right of Free Speech as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. Leaders take stands. Leaders make unpopular decisions if they feel they are right. Leaders do not step down in the face of a bully. Roy Costner IV ended his High School career with a bang. As valedictorian, Costner had the honor of giving a speech in front of the entire school, and he certainly made an impact. The school district, under threats from the ACLU and atheist groups, had decided to end the practice of praying before school events. Costner had something else in mind. As reported by Christian News, Liberty High School held its graduation ceremonies this past week, and little did the school officials know that their valedictorian was about to make national news. A High School valedictorian from South Carolina ripped up his approved speech on stage this past weekend, and minutes later, delivered the Lord’s Prayer in defiance of the school district’s decision to no ...

Three stories from a generation fading away bring reason for holiday to life     By Ron Barnett Staff writer rbarnettdon't see themselves as heroes, although it couldn't be any clearer that their deeds were heroic. What they did was save the world. When the United States entered World War II in late 1941 following the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hitler had overrun most of Europe, and Japan was spreading tyranny across the Pacific. The British were standing their ground, but there seemed to be little hope for the tide to turn. Only America could change the game. And so they came, from small towns and farms in South Carolina and across the nation, to defend that core American value, the quality of life that is embedded so deeply in the nation's psyche that in good times it sometimes gets taken for granted. Freedom. On this Memorial Day weekend, as Americans pause to remember those who gave their all to defend our cherished liberty, we reflect on that great generation that changed the course of histo ...
The Cherokee are an Iroquoian-speaking people aboriginally occupying the southern Appalachians of North America. Western North Carolina was the heart of their farming/hunting lands but they also lived in portions of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia. In 1838-1839 a major portion of the Cherokee were forcedly removed from their homeland by the United States government to the present state of Oklahoma along the infamous “Trail of Tears.” In the early twenty-first century there are two main groups of Cherokee--the Oklahoma Cherokee are the larger group and are known as the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and United Keetoowah Band; the Eastern Band is considerably smaller. Based on self-identification in the 2000 census, the Cherokee are the largest Native American group in the United States.

Ahem..I was given this lesson on how to BBQ over a pm on here day before yesterday. In the southern United States, barbecue initially revolved around the cooking of pork.[8] During the 19th century, pigs were a low-maintenance food source that could be released to forage for themselves in forests and woodlands. When food or meat supplies were low, these semi-wild pigs could then be caught and eaten.[9] It was the Spanish who first introduced the pig into the Americas and to the American Indians. The Indians, in turn, introduced the Spanish to the concept of true slow cooking with smoke. The Spanish colonists came to South Carolina in the early 16th century and settled at Santa Elena. It was in that early American colony that Europeans first learned to prepare and to eat "real" barbecue.[10] According to estimates, prior to the American Civil War, Southerners ate around five pounds of pork for every one pound of beef they consumed.[11] Because of the poverty of the southern United States at this time, ever ...

At home on this rainy holiday working on my schedule for my time in the United States. I will be home for 6 months to visit churches and schools to share about this ministry and what God has planned for the future before I return to the Dominican Republic for another 18 months. Right now I have meetings and sharing opportunities scheduled in Colorado, Florida, South Carolina, and New Jersey. There is still the possibility to travel to Pennsylvania, Virginia, California, and Nebraska. Praying that God will open doors so that I can reach my budget and return to the DR as planned. Please keep this on your prayer list.
Portrait of Theodosia Burr: On December 31, 1812, the beautiful and vivacious Theodosia Burr, wife of wealthy Governor Joseph Alston of South Carolina, left her husband's plantation and sailed north on the Patriot to visit her beloved father, the famous Aaron Burr, in New York City. In early January the vessel was accosted off Cape Hatteras by ships of Great Britain, then at war with the United States, but was permitted to proceed on its journey. The Patriot was never seen again nor, with any certainty, was Theodosia. An angry storm that very night swept the coast of North Carolina. Some say that during the gale pirates boarded the Patriot, removed all valuables, forced passengers and crew to walk the plank, then sank the ship. But legend persists that Theodosia survived, that she was cast ashore in a small boat onto the Outer Banks, bereft of all possessions except a portrait of herself, and that, with her sanity completely gone, she was thereafter cared for by a Banker fisherman and his wife. The years ...
Then, black Charlestonians in cooperation with white missionaries and teachers, staged an unforgettable parade of 10,000 people on the slaveholders' race course. The symbolic power of the low-country planter aristocracy's horse track (where they had displayed their wealth, leisure, and influence) was not lost on the freedpeople. A New York Tribune correspondent witnessed the event, describing "a procession of friends and mourners as South Carolina and the United States never saw before." At 9 am on May 1, the procession stepped off led by three thousand black schoolchildren carrying arm loads of roses and singing "John Brown's Body." The children were followed by several hundred black women with baskets of flowers, wreaths and crosses. Then came black men marching in cadence, followed by contingents of Union infantry and other black and white citizens. As many as possible gathering in the cemetery enclosure; a childrens' choir sang "We'll Rally around the Flag," the "Star-Spangled Banner," and several spi ...

Four years after the United States won its independence from England, 55 state delegates, including George Washington, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin, convene in Philadelphia to compose a new U.S. constitution. The Articles of Confederation, ratified several months before the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781, provided for a loose confederation of U.S. states, which were sovereign in most of their affairs. On paper, Congress--the central authority--had the power to govern foreign affairs, conduct war, and regulate currency, but in practice these powers were sharply limited because Congress was given no authority to enforce its requests to the states for money or troops. By 1786, it was apparent that the Union would soon break up if the Articles of Confederation were not amended or replaced. Five states met in Annapolis, Maryland, to discuss the issue, and all the states were invited to send delegates to a new Constitutional Convention to be held in Philadelphia. On May 25, 1787, delegates repres ...
THE Nikki Haley STORY The GOP hired this guy"Roan Garcia-Quintana, a director of the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC), is closely tied to anti-immigrant organizations in the United States. Garcia-Quintana is a well-known leader in the CofCC, a group descended from the White Citizens Councils, which opposed desegregation of schools during the Civil Rights era." Well I am a concerned citizen of South Carolina to see our governor cohort with the enemy send a bad message. Governor hired a racist to her reelection committee. Seeing that I am African American, I see this action no good for South Carolina. I knew Nikki Haley was a bad person in my eyes’ but I did not know she would stoop so low to hire a white supremacist well this will show her as being a racist and inconsiderate of my feelings and the rest of the African American people. Well face book fans please respond to let me know how you feel!
It's Thursday, which means we are one day from starting Memorial Day weekend. To help get things jump started for you we will be tasting American Harvest vodka tonight from 4-7pm.

In 1911, President Taft dedicated the New York Public Library, which is the largest marble structure ever built in the United States. In 1788, South Carolina became the eighth state. Today is also National Lucky Penny Day and National Taffy Day. Have a wonderful day.
Morgan McComb - If there IS a present day Congressman who reminds of Andy Jackson from Tennessee - who became our seventh President of the United States (1829–1837) - It's Congressman Trey Gowdy from South Carolina. It's NOT in the Southern drawl, but it's in WHAT he says and what I have studied of President Jackson. I had some great Teachers in Junior High and High School, and that is the reason I remember so much of "What" they taught me! Andy Jackson was one of my Seventh Grade heroes. Thanks for the photo, Morgan! Just HAD to "bring it forth!!!" -Charles
Jihadis training in your neighborhood? Investigator describes setup as infrastructure for attack - One of the investigators who worked on a report about terror training camps operating inside the United States describes the network as no more or less than an infrastructure for attack. WND previously reported on a documentary called "Homegrown Jihad: Terrorist Training Camps Around the U.S.," and how it offers evidence that "Muslims of America" operates a series of training camps in the U.S. Jason Campbell is project manager for the Christian Action Network, which was behind the training camps investigation. He described for WND some of his visits to the camps, which have been located in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma Michigan, Colorado, California and Washington. "The one that really gets you concerned is in Georgia," he said. "You go down a road and all of a sudden it's just woods, and there are two ro ...

For our Repeacers in South Carolina: Come see this award winning documentary film, The Healthcare Movie. Equal access to Affordable Health Care is Realizing Peace. (M) "People are more important than profits" TOMMY DOUGLAS The story of the battle for national healthcare in both Canada and the United States is an adventure story, fraught with heroes and villains. Do you know the whole story? In the 1950's the healthcare systems in Canada and the US were pretty much the same. This 65 minute documentary addresses the continuing struggle, particularly in the US, between fear of government intervention and the right to health for all people. How did it come to be that the two systems ended up in such different places? And what can we do about it? Producers Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg, along with narrator Kiefer Sutherland produced this film to answer that question. Do you want to know the answer? Music at the credits, "Silence is Consent" by Joshua Lowe and Marianne Hoynes is an important and haunting ...

Presidents of Scottish or Scots-Irish descent James Monroe James Knox Polk William McKinley At least twenty three presidents of the United States have some Scottish or Scotch-Irish ancestry, although the extent of this varies. For example, Ronald Reagan's great grandfather was a Scot and Woodrow Wilson’s maternal grandparents were both Scottish. To a lesser degree Bill Clinton, James K. Polk and Richard Nixon have less direct Scottish, Scotch-Irish ancestry. James Monroe (Scottish & Welsh) 5th President 1817-25: His paternal 2nd great-grandfather, Major Andrew Monroe who was descended from Robert Munro, 14th Baron of Foulis, chief of an ancient Scottish highland clan, emigrated to America from Scotland in the mid-17th century. Andrew Jackson (Scotch-Irish) 7th President 1829-37: : He was born in the predominantly Ulster-Scots Waxhaws area of South Carolina two years after his parents left Boneybefore, near Carrickfergus in County Antrim.

Go to and hear her speak to us about political prisoners and prisoners of war that arose from the African descendant people's resistant to slavery in the United States. Gullah Jack was kidnapped from Africa and enslaved in Charleston, South Carolina by Paul Pritchard in the 1800s. Gullah Jack provided key assistance to Denmark Vesey, a free Black man who plotted to formulate an enslaved African rebellion in Charleston where they planned to take ships from the harbor and sail to Haiti to escape American oppression. The plot was found out and he along with others were martyred for their part in the resistance. Queen Quet Marquetta L.

(1919) William Pickens, “The Kind of Democracy the *** Expects” William Pickens was born in 1881, the year Tuskegee Institute was founded. By the time of Booker T. Washington’s death in 1915, Pickens at age 35 had already become a major spokesperson on the direction of black education in the United States. Born in South Carolina but educated in Arkansas, Pickens received a B.A. from Talladega College in Alabama in 1902 and a B.A. from Yale University two years later in classics. He then became a professor of foreign languages at Talladega until 1914 and by 1916 was Dean at Morgan State University. Despite his academic appointments, Pickens was involved with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) since its inception. By 1918 he was director of branches for the NAACP. The speech below, delivered on different occasions, during and after World War I, reflected his challenging the United States to envision a democracy inclusive of African Americans even as it promoted th . ...
Alabama is a country music and southern rock band from Fort Payne, Alabama, United States. The band was founded in 1969 by Randy Owen and his cousin Teddy Gentry (bass guitar, background vocals), soon joined by Jeff Cook (Lead Guitar, fiddle, keyboards). In 1973, after Owen's graduation from Jacksonville State University, they gave up their day jobs and weekend gigs. The group, formerly known as "Wildcountry", left Fort Payne and Lookout Mountain to explore the possibilities of the club scene in surrounding coastal South Carolina. The band is often credited with bringing country music groups paving the way for the success of today's top country groups. Since its change in name in 1972, Alabama has included Owen, Cook and Gentry. Mark Herndon was not the original drummer but was a member of the band throughout their period of fame and chart success. The band's blend of traditional country music and southern rock combined with elements of gospel music, and pop music gave it a crossover appeal that helped le ...
Secured South 1876 election After the controversial Presidential election of 1876, President Grant was warned in a report by General of the Army William T. Sherman that Southern states were threatening to secede for a second time from the United States.[181] In November 1876, President Grant, through the War Department ordered Lieutenant General Phil Sheridan to concentrate troops in New Orleans.[181] Major General Winfield S. Hancock was ordered to send troops to South Carolina.[181] The result of these troop movements and the delicate and prudent discretion of their commanding officers appointed by President Grant kept peace in the South and secured the nation from a second secession.[181] According to biographer H.W. Brands, when Grant left office in 1877, the "Union was secure. Secession was a dead letter...Slavery, the root of the sectional crisis, was a memory."[182] Foreign policies Further information: Hamilton Fish Dominican Republic and Washington treaties Grant with family at their cottage in L ...
African Burial Ground National Monument at Duane Street and African Burial Ground Way (Elk Street) in Lower Manhattan (New York City) preserves a site containing the remains of more than 400 Africans buried during the late 17th and 18th centuries in a portion of what was the largest colonial-era cemetery for people of African descent, some free, most enslaved. Historians estimate there may have been 15,000-20,000 burials in what was called the "Negroes Burial Ground" in the 1700s. The site's excavation and study was called "the most important historic urban archeological project in the United States." The discovery highlighted the forgotten history of African slaves in colonial and federal New York City, who were integral to its development. By the American Revolutionary War, they constituted nearly a quarter of the population in the city, which had the second largest number of slaves in the nation after Charleston, South Carolina. Scholars and African-American civic activists joined to publicize the impo ...

Stephen Rogerson In The Federalist, No. 46, James Madison wrote that should the unthinkable (to him) happen and the Federal Government overrun the high fences placed by the states around its constitutional powers, every foxhole in the field of the battle over the exercise of sovereignty would be filled with members of the state militias. Thankfully, South Carolina and a handful of other states, counties, and cities, recognize the historical and constitutional value and necessity of a well-regulated militia. Undoubtedly, the Federal Government will challenge the South Carolina law (should it become such) and all other efforts by states to assert their sovereign authority to nullify federal overreaches. Lawyers for the Obama administration will assert the so-called Supremacy Clause of Article VI of the Constitution, which declares, “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof ... shall be the supreme Law of the Land ... any Thing in the Constitution or Law ...
Today was a special day. I ran with my good friend Al this morning for maybe the 2,000th time. Somewhere between the 5th and 6th mile of our 10-mile run I reached my 130,000th lifetime mile. Al and I have been running together for almost 20 years. We both started running during the ‘Running Boom’ of the 1970’s, and neither one of us has had the inclination or desire to stop. We’ve run races—mostly marathons—in states all across the United States. Florida (Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Five Points of Life), Massachusetts (Boston), Minnesota (Grandma’s), Alabama (Vulcan, Mercedes), Virginia (Shamrock), North Carolina (Grandfather Mountain), South Carolina (Columbia), Nevada (Las Vegas), Utah (St. George), Illinois (Chicago) and Georgia (Atlanta, Tybee Island, Callaway Gardens, Chickamauga Battlefield, Macon, Albany, Museum of Aviation and Soldiers). We’ve competed in ultras in some of the most amazing places on the planet, including the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range and Death Valley. We also ...

By: Robert Cox Obama´s inaugural speech signals liberalism is back CHARLESTON, South Carolina — There are moments when the history of a nation changes abruptly. It was palpable that such a moment had arrived for the United States six days ago when President Barack Obama concluded his inaugural speech. One dismayed commentator for the aggressively rightwing Fox News complained: “The era of liberalism is back.” Another warned, “liberalism is out of the closet.” Yet another moaned: “This is the most depressing day of the year.” What had happened was that President Obama, decisively elected for a second term against all the hopes and predictions of the top dogs of the Republican Party, had returned the United States to its founding principles, in fact to liberalism. In a speech that was a rhetorical rhapsody to the magic and majesty of democracy, the US’s first black president articulated anew “the most evident of truths”that we are all created equal. He emphasized his dedication to that ...
Robert McElvaine, professor of history at Millsaps College, said all this bill will accomplish is to put Mississippi up for ridicule. “ ‘The Neutralization of Federal Law’?” he said. “I am astounded to see such a measure introduced in the 21st century. Do the authors of the bill see Mississippi as part of the United States?” “It all boils down to the same completely discredited argument,” he said. “When John C. Calhoun and South Carolina attempted to nullify federal law in the 1830s, President Andrew Jackson forcefully rejected the concept.” (So whatever happened to if at first you don't succeed, try, try again? Or petitioning the King of England, repeatedly, and LEAVING THE COUNTRY when he repeatedly denied our petitions? This country wouldn't even EXIST if people thought like this *** ) Talk of opposing federal law started with federal health care reform and has since been fueled by the push to change federal gun laws, he said. “It’s too much intrusion. You’re bleeding into ...

Late Night Jokes: Will Ann Romney Dance With the Stars? The Tonight Show With Jay Leno President Obama said this week that he wants to find a "pathway for citizenship" for immigrants in the United States. Don't we have that? It's called the Rio Grande River. Thousands of dead fish have now washed up on shore along the coast of South Carolina. Today the NRA said that this wouldn't have happened if those fish had guns. Ann Romney, the wife of Mitt Romney, has reportedly turned down a chance to appear on “Dancing With the Stars.†Apparently, she has something called "self-respect." It seems a doctor in Germany is being sued by the family of a patient who died after 16 items were left inside of him after the surgery. The doctor said he felt terrible. He tried to call the family but couldn't find his cellphone. Conan A health advocacy group has criticized The Cheesecake Factory for offering meals that contain over 3,000 calories.

Waiting for January 15 as the vote to send the federal funding needed after Sandy go's to another Vote.(New Congress) Funny how the two Republican Congressman from South Carolina already put up amendments to eliminate as much as they can. The North East part of America is some of the most populated in the United States pays more in Flood Insurance than any other State. The South has put in ten times more Claims for Hurricanes (the very reason Flood Insurance was created)and the middle States have put in every year with overflowing and collectivly contributed a drop in the bucket toward Flood Insurance. For these elected Politicians (all Republican) to prevent , try to cheapen down and use Sandy as an economic hostage situation over the National debt they drove up is really sick. Before this year is out we will be hearing from them and they will want the Aid THAT WE PAY THE MOST from some major flooding. The nerve of these Politicians is something NEVER before SEEN in this Country. As thousands of Victims ...
