State Delegate List – Yes it was WITHHELD!

Watch what they DO, not what they SAY.

Published

on

We have had a lot of people lately comment on how it was “impossible” for us to have beat Drew McKissick given the fact the SCGOP withheld the list of the 943 State Delegates, and withheld the list of the 943 State Alternates, to the convention on May 20th.

Yes, that is true … the SCGOP withheld the delegate list … and yes, how can you clear up the lies and rumors if you don’t even know “who” you need to clear up the lies and rumors with?

LOL … that is OK … well, not really, but we are not going to cry about it to all of you. What we are going to do is to keep doing our work and come back in MAY 2025 with 75 – 80% of the delegates and have the biggest celebration of an SCGOP State Convention anyone has ever seen!!!

And no … you can’t win with 50% + 1 when you are the outsider / underdog … at least you can’t win that way against people willing to “cheat” the process.

Evidence the List was Withheld:

It is always a fair question to request the “back-up” that supports anything we say. So a few people have asked for proof that we asked the SCGOP for the State Delegate List … and proof that the SCGOP refused to provide us with the list. Well, that is easy, so here it is:

On May 8th @ 9:18am, Mike Voaden, the then current Greenville County Republican Party (GCRP) State Executive Committeeman formally requested the state delegate list. Mike sent a follow-up email on May 9th @ 10:38am.

On May 11th @ 9:49am, Mark Bonnoitt, with the SCGOP, responded that per some 2020 vote by the State EC it was prohibited for the SCGOP to distributing the State Delegate List. Comical right!!!

No restrictions on sharing State EC list!!!

Why it Makes No Sense:

Obviously that answer from the SCGOP is completely devoid of any logic whatsoever.

1. A previous State Executive Committee (one from the first half of 2020) can not legally bind a future State Executive Committee without a change in the Rules. Plus, if such “vote” exists … can the SCGOP show us the minutes from this meeting … and what the vote actually said?

2. Rules, Rules, Rules!!! The “establishment” leadership at the SCGOP, DO NOT follow “rules”… obviously. There is no specific rule on this matter … but there is a clear precedent under Rule 4(c)(10) that candidates should be given a copy of the delegate list.

Furthermore, Rule 2(a) clearly states that the Rules should be applied so as to substantially accomplish their objectives.

And if that was not enough, Rule 2(a) clearly states that the spirit and not the letter of the law controls. Isn’t it clear the intent was to allow all candidates to have delegate lists … county and state!!!

The Rules:

SCGOP Rules

Correct us “if” we are Wrong!!!

If we are wrong about any of the above … write us and show us what is wrong? We have run this by A LOT of people …. and it is clear that the SCGOP bent / broke the Rules.

That is not the SCGOP any of us need.or want!!!

GOOD NEWS … there were no restrictions on using the SCGOP State Executive Committee list … so stay tune and we will get that out to you next!!!

TRUMP v Haley – Betting & Polling UPDATE

So what is her “endgame”?

Published

on

The Real Clear Politics Betting Averages … as well as the RCP Polling Averages … both show Nikki Haley has virtually NO CHANCE of becoming the 2024 GOP Nominee for President.  

So what is her “endgame”?

Or maybe the better question is what is her DONORS “endgame”?

We can only speculate … but most seem to believe that Nikki Haley’s donors would prefer 4 more years of JOE BIDEN than 4 years of DONALD TRUMP … and that even includes her “Republican” donors and supporters.

Well, it will be interesting how much longer Haley stays in the race … and really interesting how many “Democrats” cross-over (or don’t) in the SC Presidential Preference Primary this Saturday February 24th … but we are told her campaign has AD BUYS through they March 5th Super Tuesday … so expect another two weeks at least.

But in reality … this is embarrassing.

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 …

Ronna & Drew … You’re FIRED!

TRUMP’s picks …  Michael Whatley & Lara Trump

Published

on

In news that could not come soon enough for grassroots advocates in South Carolina (and across the Nation) … President Donald Trump has announced his endorsements for the new Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair & Co-Chair.  (See formal DJT statement:  HERE)

TRUMP’s picks … 

RNC Chair:   Michael Whatley to replace Ronna McDaniel

RNC Co-Chair:   Lara Trump to replace Drew McKissick

TRUMP also asked for Chris LaCivita (HERE) to assume the role of Chief Operating Officer of the RNC.  Trump stated “Chris will manage the RNC’s day-to-day operations so it will become a fighting machine for 2024 and use all the tools available to win for the American people.”  (HERE)

Many of us did not expect the announcement to come before the February 24th South Carolina Presidential Preference Primary … feeling that if SCGOP Chairman Drew McKissick was not picked he would “vindictively” take it out on President TRUMP in the upcoming primary … but apparently the TRUMP TEAM was undaunted and made their pick earlier than expected.  It was certainly something the grassroots TRUMP base in South Carolina was calling for since they are largely against Drew McKissick.

This is a bold pick one activist told us, and it is indicative of the direction President TRUMP will take in dealing with the RINO “establishment” going forward.  “We are remaking the Republican Party” the activist continued.

THE NEXT TEST … what will the RNC Members DO?  President TRUMP can make his endorsement, but the real question is what will the 168 “Members” of the RNC (HERE) actually do when the vote come up?  TRUMP had endorsed Michael Whatley over Drew McKissick for Co-Chair last year … but the RNC Members picked McKissick.

This is endorsement for Chair however is much higher stakes … and the Republican base has been seeking change at the top of the RNC for some time now … so stay tuned, it will be interesting … especially if McKissick continues to lobby for the position.

Developing …
