LCRP Censures Shealy – SCGOP Next?

The censure motion easily passed 49 to 2 by the LCRP Executive Committee

Published

on

On Monday night, June 5th, the Lexington County Republican Party (LCRP) led by Chairwoman Pamela Godwin censured their local SC State Senator Katrina Shealy (R – Lexington) for her covenant breaking votes against the pro-life plank of the SC Republican Party Platform.

This was not a controversial vote.  The censure motion easily passed 49 to 2 by the LCRP Executive Committee representing local precincts from all across Lexington County.  

The LCRP members presented a wide body of evidence and voted to censure Sen. Shealy,” Godwin said in a statement. “Being pro-life is a bare minimum expectation for Republican legislators in Lexington County and Sen. Shealy has unfortunately failed that test very outwardly.”

“It was clever and cute, if you are in to self promotion, but that 15 minutes of fame in the national spotlight must have been encouraging because yesterday they did it again, this time voting against a 6 week fetal heartbeat bill!”[CONTINUE READING]


Censure:  A formal statement of disapproval by someone’s political party. While a censure doesn’t remove someone from office, it can make it more difficult to gain support during elections.


What will the SCGOP Do Now?

The real question is what will the SCGOP State Executive Committee & narrowly re-elected (HERE) Chairman Drew McKissick do now?

D-Day … Saturday, June 17th: The next SCGOP State Executive Committee statewide quarterly meeting will be held on Saturday June 17th. All resolutions & censures are due to the SCGOP by Friday June 9th at noon for consideration at the meeting.

This will be the first meeting of the “new” SCGOP State Executive Committee since the 2023 Precinct ReOrg this past March, April & May. Although there are a lot of new county leaders from all across South Carolina on the SCGOP State Executive Committee … leadership under Chairman Drew McKissick still “controls” the body … so what will he do?

Will the Katrina Shealy censure motion be brought up for consideration by the entire SCGOP State Executive Committee on June 17th?

Or, will the SCGOP leadership “bury” the censure motion as they have before on so many other baseline Republican Platform resolutions and censure motions submitted previously?

This June 17th meeting, and how the Senator Katrina Shealy censure is handled, will determine the tone and direction of the SCGOP over the next two year term.

Stay tuned ….

Romans 8:18

Published

on

God promises the faithful a beautiful spiritual inheritance. That does not mean our lives are to be perfect. Just the opposite, we should expect and be ready to face the broken world and suffering in this life. Know your faith well, give glory to your Father, know that God calls you to expose the darkness and shine the light … in anticipation for what HE still has waiting on you!

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
Romans 8:18

To repeat from last Sunday (HERE),  we live in wicked and dangerous times (…). Christ died for all of us, and all of will be judged according to our works.

Happy Sunday!

Who Is Fixing FIRST STEPS?

Why would a member of the SC Freedom Caucus sponsor a leftist bill?

Published

on

Back on June 20th, 2023, the day after the Governor signed the new FIRST STEPS “Fiscal Accountability” bill (H4023) into law we wrote about this bill. We noticed it because it was pushed through outside of session (during the summer) and was passed UNANIMOUSLY by both the SC Senate & the SC House.

Read the article HERE.

Read the H4023 Bill:  HERE.

FIRST STEPS is also a darling program of the left.  We knew this because it was a negotiating tool in our school choice fight over the past decade.  In order to get any advancements for “school choice” … the left (in this case Democrat former Senator Vincent Sheheen) would ask for more “stuff” for FIRST STEPS.  Guess what, he always got it, and we got nothing for school choice.  This is why we are involved!!!

Those are all HUGE “red flags” when it comes to legislation as the SC State House … and that is before we even get into the details of the bill …

(#1) Allowable overhead expenses were increased from 8% to 13% … that is a massive increase for the leftist Pre-K reading program.

(#2) Public Library Employees are now required to be on each of the 46+ FIRST STEP partnership boards.

(#3) More child “data sharing” with the government.

Who would agree to any of that???


Stewart Jones (R – Laurens) – Lead Sponsor of H4023


We were further surprised when we discovered that the lead sponsor of this bill was no other than Rep. STEWART JONES of the SC House Freedom Caucus … and now a candidate for US Congress to replace the retiring U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan (HERE).

Why would a member of the SC Freedom Caucus sponsor a leftist bill? Then we noticed a whole lot of the SC Freedom Caucus members sponsored the bill.

Strange right???

Not really. There is A LOT of money in education … and it is good to have the leftist (which you just gave a 62.5% raise to) on your side when you are running for higher office … like Congress.

THE GRASSROOTS MISSED IT!: Where was the “CALL TO ACTION” from the SC Freedom Caucus to help get this bill passed? There was none because if we had been asked to call in support of this bill, someone would have read the bill … and asked the question … WHY???

This needs to be fixed … by the SC Freedom Caucus.



We have reached out to the SC FREEDOM CAUCUS several times to ask about this mess … with no response.  We have searched the newly filed bills since passage … and there is nothing that we can find that will fix this mess.

So we are asking publicly … what is the status???  Who is going to fix the obvious errors of H4023 as championed by the SC Freedom Caucus???

WHO???

Democrat Crossover Voting?  A New Twist!

It is a REAL PROBLEM!!!

Published

on

Democrats vote in the Republican Primaries! It is a fact, and it is a REAL PROBLEM.  We shared with you last summer an example of two far-left RABID Democrats … actual Democrat candidates for office … that regularly vote in Republican Primaries … one is currently sitting on Greenville City Council (HERE).  Democrats do it openly … they don’t care … and our “Republican” Supermajority at the State House won’t do anything to fix it.

And neither will SCGOP Chairman Drew McKissick & the SCGOP State Executive Committee.  They all like the status quo as Democrat crossover voters is how a lot of their friends get re-elected.

Well, we also know Democrats are crossing over in the Republican Presidential Preference Primary between President TRUMP and Nikki Haley.  We have seen Democrats posting openly about it on social media … and it is to be expected.

However, in an interesting twist, about two weeks ago Democrat National Committee (DNC) Chairman Jamie Harrison (from South Carolina) publicly stated about Nikki Haley that South Carolina Democrats aren’t “bailing you out”.  (HERE).

The question … was he serious? 

2/3/2024 HILL Article:  HERE


Well, it looks like Jamie Harrison & the SC Democratic Party may hold true to that commitment. 

Republicans go through a “reorganization” aka ReOrg every two years … and so do Democrats … they just do it in different years (at least until 2025 when Democrats and Republicans will hold their ReOrg at the same time – an interesting change right).  As such, the Democrats are holding their final even year ReOrg in March 2024.

But guess what … the SC Democrats have publicly stated that “No one who votes in the 2024 Republican Presidential Preference Primary can participate in our county conventions.”  

So … Democrats are EXCLUDING crossover voters in their 2024 Precinct ReOrg.  

Yes, it could be a head-fake and the Democrats could “wave” that rule … or just not check for violations like the SCGOP does with their RINO friends where “selective enforcement” runs rampant for rules violations … but it is a new development from the SCDP.

We can’t wait to see how much crossover voting may help Nikki Haley … but this is an interesting development from the Democrats.

Stay tuned …

Proverbs 22:22-23

Published

on

We live in wicked and dangerous times. Stir clear of evil. Strive to be righteous. The evil heart hates others, mocks them for things that they may or may not control, abuse them. Treat those vulnerable and helpless with greater care. Stand up for them. Christ died for all of us, and all of will be judged according to our works.

“Don’t walk on the poor just because they’re poor, and don’t use your position to crush the weak, Because GOD will come to their defense; the life you took, he’ll take from you and give back to them.”
Proverbs 22:22-23

To repeat from last Sunday (HERE),  never give up. Do not get discouraged. Live life to the fullest. Work with all your might, despite the destructions, and those that wish for you to fail.

Happy Sunday!

FCC Outlaws AI RoboCalls

“Trust what you see, not what you hear”

Published

on

Have you gotten one of these Artificial Intelligence (AI) RoboCalls?  We have and it was REALLY good quality … but it was not a real person.

The one we received was from the Nikki Haley campaign.  It sounded like a real person, it could respond to generic questions … so if you were not expecting it, responded “typically”, you could have had an entire conversation and made a donation with … a robot.

This AI RoboCall controversy started with a deceptive DEEP FAKE robocall in the New Hampshire Primary in January using an AI generated voice of Joe Biden.   The call told voters to “save” their vote for November … essentially telling folks not to vote in the primary.  Listen HERE.

There is a huge ongoing investigation by the New Hampshire Attorney General to determine “who” is responsible … and so far it is being traced to a company in Texas (HERE).  We would not want to be that political consultant!!!

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was also quick to act by outlawing these AI generated robocalls.  See article below and the FCC Press Release HERE.

AP Article:  HERE


It is becoming easier and easier to clone peoples voices.  We actually saw video of a Governor Henry McMaster Press Conference where the Governor was saying some really “weird” things.  Well … it wasn’t real.

TRUST NOTHING!!!  They old saying used to be “trust what you see, not what you hear” … well guess what … with these DEEP FAKES you can’t trust anything anymore.

And realized these things really are not hard to make.  We have even heard that there are DEEP FAKES going around about “regular folks” … even us here at mySCGOP with some rather nasty and disgusting things.  

The new rule … STOP trusting things you hear & even “videos” you see … ASK THE PERSON!!!

More to come we are sure … so stay tuned …
