‘Dinosaur’ Shows Up in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A dinosaur-like creature was reportedly spotted in South Carolina. Columbia resident Anita Sullivan told Cryptozoology News she was driving with her husband on Interstate 20 on Nov 30 when they came upon the animal at around 12.30 p.m.. “We were headed eastbound, crossing the Broad River bridge. I was just looking out of the window causally and just happened to see what at first looked like a large snake moving slowly down the river, with his body moving slightly under the water,” said Sullivan. “It was coming north towards the bridge and it looked to the left as it came up, above the top of the water.” The sighting purportedly lasted about 10 seconds and Sullivan says she was not able to snap a picture of the aquatic being. “I was highly excited and freaked out! I didn’t think to take a picture.” The long-necked animal was […] Read More

Exploring American Monsters: South Carolina

South Carolina, one of the original thirteen British colonies, was the first to ratify the original U.S. Constitution (the Articles of Confederation) in 1781, and was the first state to vote to leave the United States during the Civil War in 1860 (don’t worry, it came back). South Carolina is known for many other firsts for the U.S.: the first round of golf in the New World was played in Charleston, the first symphony orchestra was organized in the state, as was the first public college, and the first museum. Famous people born in South Carolina were U.S. President Andrew Jackson, the Godfather of Soul James Brown, comedian Chris Rock, and baseball great Shoeless Joe Jackson. It’s not a big state (fortieth largest), or the most populous (ranked twenty-third), but the geography consists of sandy beaches, marshes, the Piedmont Plateau, rivers, and lakes, so what it lacks in size […] Read More

Lizard Man May Have Returned to South Carolina

The U.S. may not have a Loch Ness Monster, but residents of South Carolina are just as proud (or afraid) as Scots are of their own creepy cryptid – the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp. First spotted in 1988, the seven-foot tall reptilian is back in the news after a woman took a photograph of one on August 2nd in Bishopville, SC. Shortly after that, another witness came forward with a video he took in May of a similar humanoid creature in the same area. Has Lizard Man returned to Scape Ore Swamp? Went to church with a friend in Bishopville and we saw lizard man come out of the woods and run along the tree line. Took this picture zoomed in with my phone. My hand to God, I am not making this up. So excited! That’s the eyewitness account from the photographer named Sarah (no last […] Read More

It’s now illegal to be homeless, at least in Columbia, South Carolina.

It’s now illegal to be homeless, at least in Columbia, South Carolina.  Homeless people are set to be shipped off to a camp on the outskirts of town – but the kicker is that the shelter only has 250 beds, which are available on a first come, first serve basis.  Once you’re in the camp, there’s no way of leaving, and there’s no room for the other thousand homeless residents left in the city.  Sound too crazy to be true?  Just watch the video.

Operation Vigilant Guard being used to acclimatize citizens into accepting the police state

On March 7, 2015, the state-wide drill, entitled Operation Vigilant Guard, took place under the pretext of preparation for the inevitable destruction a hurricane would bring to South Carolina. According to reports in the local media, the drills were based on the premise of the landfall of a Category 4 hurricane and “how they’d respond to get citizens help” in such an event. National Guard, working with police in MRAP‘s, dressed in military gear, carrying assault rifles, WHY? These drills and training operations are being used to acclimatize the public into accepting the American police state.  The National Guard describes the importance of the exercise in building “synchronization” between local and federal authorities. “We are testing an unbelievable amount of effort and synchronization,” said Army Maj. Gen. Thomas H. Katkus, adjutant general for the Alaska National Guard. “Every one of them is a little bit different in what we’re trying to […] Read More
