How can Governor Haley be more concerned about those who have not been proven to have commit a crime, while someone on probation may not have the proper identification. Take someone for example who has committed identity theft or someone who has a history of breaking probation the state should, and its just my opinion … Continue reading
While in January 2014 Judge Michael Baxley wrote in a judgement that South Carolina’s prison system are underfunded in helping the need of prisoners with mental health, also in January Nikki Haley made a budget proposal that cut extra funding that would help provide funding for the construction of new beds.

Governor Nikki Haley won’t expand medicaid to South Carolina residents make even lower the cost of premiums. Governor Nikki Haley and Republican leaders would have you think anything federal funded is bad? If that was so then why are Nikki Haley and South Carolina Republican leaders investing the states retirement fund in a company that handles only medicaid and medicare health plans. (No private insurance here). Continue reading
Nikki Haley and any Republican leader in South Carolina shouldn’t dare to talk about the President’s Affordable Health Care website that handle millions of visitors, when the South Carolina Ethics Commission’s website couldnt handle at least 1 person visiting their website with it going down. If your looking for user guides it’s there, but any data information it has all gone down with an error message. Is it a hack, a block, (or even an update or an upgrade done on the South Carolina Ethics Commission website that took place after 9:33 PM tonight). Continue reading

501 c 3 groups can’t support candidates and they definitely can’t make score cards that are clearly slanted and are bi-partisan, but apparently that’s exactly what the Koch Brother’s American’s Prosperity Foundation has done, and on the very top of that score card it says ‘Americans for Prosperity Foundation’ and right below it says ‘Scoring’. … Continue reading

Once again looking at Governor Nikki Haley’s proposal for Schools I look at the expanded funding for virtual charter schools, and I couldn’t help but note the money being made from these schools. For-profit charter schools are absolutely prohibited in South Carolina, however upon closer look virtual charter schools it shows some are being operated … Continue reading
So once again what is the real purpose of South Carolina use of Blue Coat. Nikki Haley and her supporters for guns in bars and restaurants don’t mind taking their Freedom of Speech Rights, but don’t mind supporting a company that practices censoring over the internet. Two Coincidences today, I could not help but notice: … Continue reading
Data over a decade ago show that some of the same counties with high domestic abuse are some of the same counties in recent data reports with a high number of domestic abuse cases, so Governor Nikki Haley can’t claim there was a sudden DECREASE in domestic cases in these surrounding counties. In fact there has been an increase for some of these areas; and yet Governor Nikki Haley has given 50% less in fewer funds; while giving more to other organizatins for other areas of counties who show significantly less, by thousands in fewer cases for domestic abuse. Apparently Governor Nikki Haley and her office didn’t read any reports, because if they did or if they truly cared I think the last areas you would decrease funding would be in areas with a high number of domestic abuse cases.
Governor Nikki Haley spent $127,000 going to Europe on South Carolina citizens money and she gives millions in incentive package to companies such as the $120 millions to one particular company who said they had NO guarnatee of that they would be expanding in South Carolina; she proposed an unlimited budget to a task force made up by donors and lobbyist; she has no problem giving yearly $50,000 to another lobbyist organization that is known to be under investigation by the FBI and IRS for Recreation and tourism; and some how for a few days a year she doesn’t think it worth it to make sure the funds are there for young people with physical disabilities and chronic illness to have a camp just for them to go to.

Is it a violation using a federally and state funded institution to plan conferences; host conferences; provide building location; use tuitions and tax payer’s money, uses school address; use business hours, to represent partisan ideals/politics of political organizations and think tanks who come together to discussed issues that concern them. The Koch Brothers have been known to host events to discuss their latest agenda. No surprise the Koch Brothers’s Charles Koch Foundation has a seat on the APEE’s executive board. Continue reading
Just like other programs for African-Americans, the poor; Nikki Haley has eliminated programs, juggle around funding or has either put a very, very smaller cap on funds. And if you see one of the governor’s latest proposal then you don’t have to wonder why a stated funded university such as Clemson has on their website asking for donations to fund their student’s tuition.
In 2013 the New York Times reported a 72% increase from 2011-12 from 2007 with students being diagnosed with autism, Asperger syndrome, or a related developmental disorder development disorders. In 2012 the Atlantic wrote an article titled “Why So Many Babies Are Still Being Born With Down Syndrome.” I think clearly the title recognizes a need for more help, but that need for help doesn’t appear to be something Governor Nikki Haley has recognized.
If special needs students were a charter, private school, or home bound schooling Governor Nikki Haley would have come up with a voucher or tax-exemption so these parents could send their children to school, but since they are not a charter, private, or home bound schools these students have been left out in the cold by Governor Nikki Haley.

As mentioned in previous blog Governor Nikki Haley is getting rid of a gifted program that is a part of public schools that has proved to be a success for all ethnic groups. Let me stress real because a ‘real’ public school is not a charter school. Charter schools supporters just call themselves public schools … Continue reading
This program has been so much a success that there has been an increase in the number of students entering into the gifted program in South Carolina. That increase of students entering into such advanced programs also means the need for more money; however the funding for this program has not increased with the number of students entering into the program and now Governor Nikki Haley plans are to eliminate that program so that she can fund private and home bound schooling.
If public schools were a business, Governor Nikki Haley would have been offering them bond incentives to expand rather than eliminating such program.
A program that has been recognized nationally, for its aggressiveness to help African-American students and the poor Continue reading
South Carolina records show tax payer funded lobbying is prohibited and the National Conference of State Legislature in 2013 records reports that out of all the states South Carolina is among ten states that prohibit state Agencies to use public funds to keep lobbyists, however Governor Nikki Haley has blatantly put them in the kind … Continue reading

Since Mark Sanford left the Governor’s Office, Governor Nikki Haley has gutted the Medicaid services for the poor and the youngest of society year after year non-stop. In the mean time she has benefited herself and her campaign donors.
Watch the growing numbers and section, Governor Nikki Haley proposes to be taken out. Year after year Nikki Haley has expanded her resolve to cut even deeper into Medicaid and the Health and Human Services. I have included a comparison to see how Governor Nikki Haley proposal are cuts that wipe out whole sections concerning Medicaid and the Health and Human Service. You will find that once Nikki Haley has marked out whole sections she moves on to a different section to cut everything out of it. Year after Year…
There are several ways something can become Pay to Play and in the case of Nikki Haley, the following definition and subject matter applies: taken from Wikipedia it states Typically, the payer (an individual, business, or organization) makes campaign contributions to public officials, party officials, or parties themselves, and receives political or pecuniary benefit such as no-bid government contracts, influence over legislation, political appointments or nominations, special access or other favors. The contributions, less frequently, may be to nonprofit or institutional entities, or may take the form of some benefit to a third party, such as a family member of a governmental official.

“The term “no-bid contract” is a popular phrase for what is officially known as a “sole source contract” which means that there is only one person or company that can provide the contractual services needed, so any attempt to obtain bids would only result in that person or company bidding on it.” From all appearances it appeared Koch Financial was a company no more however two reports date 2013 show this company still operates. Is Was it the need to appear no longer in existence have something to do with the Koch Brothers funding of political campaigns, organizations, Think-Tanks, advertisements.

Koch brothers have years of experience from campaign contributions, lobbying, and using other organizations to push their agenda. Did these two brothers seek another means to push their agenda. Could the Koch Brothers appetite for politics and power be the stepping stone that would groom a politician who could support their agenda. From college to straight to a job at Koch Industries and directly into politics, a path, that would take him to the United States House of Representatives and maybe a political path that carried the Koch agenda.
Peculiar as a state presentative he took a lawyer position as a partner in a law firm’s public affairs. Any lobbying in that? Coincidently right after this U.S. Congressman first assumed office to the U.S. House of Representatives the Koch brothers lobbyist organization, Koch Public Sector LLC, hired this Congressman’s firm to lobby for them.
Out of all the firms the Koch brothers could have choosed, they chose this one.
This Congressman’s firm states the following: “They provides high-level strategic services and government affairs counsel to global corporations, industry associations and non-profit organizations with interests before the United States Congress, the White House and Federal Agencies.. …….developing and executing customized strategies that successfully navigate Washington’s complex legislative, political and regulatory processes”.
