Time is Your Enemy … the COUNTDOWN!

And Election Day is just around the corner…

Published

on

Think about this …


“Time is Your Enemy.

Every minute spent piecing together a ground game means one less voter called, one less door knocked, one potential voter lost.

And Election Day is just around the corner…”


We can’t take credit for the phrase, it came from a campaign call-banking / door-knocking app company … but it did strike us as extremely important … enough so to take a moment to reflect on the COUNTOWN to some very important dates.

We always think we have plenty of time … to the next election … but the clock is ticking, elections start and end on time (so there are no “extensions”), and if you do not do it today you have one less day to what you need to do before the election is over.

Tuesday, November 7th, 2023 – 71 DAYS

  • Municipal and Public Service District Elections (7AM – 7PM)

Saturday, February 24th, 2024 – 180 DAYS

  • Republican Presidential Preference Primary (7AM – 7PM)

Tuesday, June 11th, 2024 – 288 DAYS

  • PARTISAN PRIMARIES!!! (7AM – 7PM)

Tuesday, November 5th, 2024 – 435 DAYS

  • General / Presidential Election!!! (7AM – 7PM)

And that is just the countdown to election day itself … early voting starts two weeks earlier … there are tons of task that must be done leading up to election day whether you are a candidate, thinking about being a candidate … a campaign manager / worker … or the all important leader in your precinct working to Get Out The Vote (GOTV).

Yes, time can be your friend … but time can be your enemy as well.

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.

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!
