    A Greenville, South Carolina, resident smelled a home invasion suspect’s cologne, followed the smell to a closet, and shot the suspect dead. The incident occurred around 8:25 a.m. Friday morning. Greenville News reports that the woman took her children to school, returned to her residence, and sensed that someone was in her apartment. There was an “unusual smell, an odor, cologne or whatever.” The woman’s uncle, Douglas Sweeney, said his niece began going room to room in the apartment then opened a closet door and “there he was.” The woman shot the intrusion suspect on the spot. Responding officers discovered...

    Greenville Police Department officer Allen Jacobs was shot and killed Friday in the line of duty. “We lose, we hurt, we ache,” Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller said. “No one wants to lose their officers.” Jacobs was pursuing on foot a “known gang member” in the Nicholtown community near downtown and was shot multiple times as he rounded the corner of a house before he died Friday afternoon, Miller said. The suspect in the shooting took his own life while being surrounded by police officers near the Swamp Rabbit Trail, Miller said.

    Sen. Ted Cruz and Ben Carson reportedly met privately in a storage closet Thursday night in Greenville to try and cool relations between the two campaigns ahead of the primary here. But the clandestine meeting allegedly did not go well. Cruz called the meeting, The Daily Beast reports, to smooth over what has been a contentious public spat with the Carson campaign ever since the Iowa caucus. Carson accused Cruz of using dirty campaign tactics after one of Cruz's staffers saw a CNN report and told voters Carson was dropping out of the race right before voting started in Iowa....

    Donald Trump had good reason to suspect he was ambushed by the Republican National Committee during Saturday's debate in South Carolina: That was exactly what happened. Chad Groover, the chairman of the local Republican Party in Greenville, essentially confirmed the billionaire's worst fears over the weekend. "I didn't have hundreds of tickets. I had a couple of dozen tickets. You'll have a good mix of people who are donors, people who are donors and workers, and people who are just workers," Groover said, WYFF 4 reported Saturday. RNC Chief Strategist and Communications Director Sean Spicer gave Breitbart News a precise...

    I'm here in downtown Greenville ahead of Saturday night's GOP presidential debate at The Peace Center. Down the street from the venue, a flurry of "Trump" signs led me to his local campaign headquarters. Hundreds of visitors have been filing in and out since this morning, organizers told me. One receptionist said "she's never seen anything like it" since she started working there a month ago. All ages were walking through the HQ, many of whom were eager to take pictures with the life size cutout of Trump in the lobby. "We won't be swayed tonight," one Trump supporter said,...

    Republican presidential front-runner said Thursday that his plans to improve the economy for black Americans is why he is leading in the polls with black voters, though at least one recent poll disputes Trump's claim. "I lead with almost every group. including with the African-American groups," Trump told reporters at an event in Greenville, South Carolina. "I have tremendous support." Quinnipiac University released a national poll Thursday showing that while Trump is leading the Republican Party nationally, he is polling poorly with black Americans in the general election. The poll found... When asked "If the election for President were being...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump will speak to the Upstate Chamber Coalition's Presidential Series on Thursday at noon. The event is sold out with about 1,400 people preregistered and about 100 media personnel expected. This will be Trump's first trip to the Upstate since announcing he will run for president. A recent Monmouth University poll shows Trump has 30 percent of South Carolina Republicans support. In second place, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 15 percent. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has 4 percent. Political analyst Chip Felkel said so far, Trump has been given a 'pass' by voters but will...

    Michigan-based Meijer, which began the supercenter combination of a general merchandise store and a supermarket in 1962, began its expansion into Wisconsin in late June, and officially opened its second wave of Wisconsin stores today. As is often the case with new stores, Meijer is holding a “grand opening” sale. Enter the heavy hand of government. From the MacIver News Service: Likely in an attempt to break into the new market, Meijer is allegedly advertising and selling products for less than cost. In Wisconsin, however, that practice is illegal under the Unfair Sales Act – also known as the minimum...

    Declared and potential GOP presidential candidates competed Saturday to sound the toughest warning to Islamic terrorists -- with one vowing to bomb them "back to the 7th Century" and another invoking Liam Neeson's threat from the film, "Taken" -- in the latest forum underscoring how national security has returned as a dominant campaign theme. A roster of Republicans spoke at a summit in Greenville, S.C., the state which holds the first-in-the-South presidential primary. Several who recently announced their 2016 campaigns -- including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio -- were among them, firing up the conservative crowd...

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) spoke about last week's shooting in his home state to supporters in South Carolina Saturday. “We saw the ugly face of radical Islam in Garland, Texas,” Cruz said, referring to the incident in which two gunmen opened fire near the Curtis Culwell Center before being shot and killed by police. "Thankfully, one police officer helped those terrorists meet their virgins," he said, according to The Hill. He delivered the speech at the South Carolina Freedom Summit in Greenville, which drew roughly a dozen Republican candidates and hopefuls, according to the Washington Post. Cruz shared three words...

    As if we needed another reminder that the free market is no place for big government, along comes another government loan failure—Open Range. This Greenville, Colorado company received $267 million in federal loan guarantees from the Department of Agriculture in an effort to bring broadband service to unserved or underserved rural areas. Along the same vein as Solyndra, Open Range was purported to provide cutting-edge technology, but worked under an extremely questionable business model. In early October, Open Range declared bankruptcy, leaving taxpayers to foot a $74 million bill for unpaid loans. The government picking winners and losers in the...

    Stop Obama Now!! - San Diego ^ | 8/9/2011 | roger-sd
    In October of 2007, Obama declared at a Apostolic Church in Greenville, South Carolina that he would create a millennial kingdom of God on earth. The church is Redemption World Outreach Center and is reported to be a part of the Pentecostal Holiness movement, according to some websites. Some Pentecostals believe that the kingdom will be a real physical kingdom, a theocracy ruled by men, and this appears to be such a sect. The doctrine that the millennial kingdom will be a man-made physical kingdom on earth created by political or military means is called Dominion Theology. The doctrine of...

    GREENVILLE, S.C. -- An abandoned dog is recovering after his eyes were gouged out. The North Greenville Animal Hospital had to remove both eyes of the 2-year-old dog. "This dog really didn't have any other injuries, so we wonder if it's an abuse situation where someone actually traumatized the eyes," said Dr. Ann Malphrus of North Greenville Animal Hospital. Malphrus works with Noah's Arks Rescue, an organization that adopts injured and abused animals in order to get them care and help them find permanent homes. The spitz, who has been named Gandolf, was picked up by Greenville Animal Control officers...
