Vetting … it’s Critical!!!

“Don’t replace old RINOs with new RINOs”



We are all relatively new to this “political” quagmire … and at first it seems so easy. As opposed to all these self-serving “politicians”, we just need to get good everyday citizens involved, active, and in positions of leadership within the party & in elected office … and everything will be better.

That’s not so hard … right???

Well, like most things, it is easier said than done!!!

We can do whole series on how to technically “vet” candidates & leaders … stay tuned … but here are a few tips / realizations from our perspective that may help you as you build our your local America FIRST “team”. It is always better to learn from other peoples mistakes than to repeat them.

TIP #1: Realize, “they” used to be the Patriots!

Do a little background research on the old guard leadership. Politicians or party officials that have been around for 20 years or so. Not always, but in many cases you will discover they were the rabble-rouser of their time. They fought the system and the “establishment” leaders of their day … eventually won … and are now have become the “establishment” leaders that we all want to replace today. Oh how the tables have turned.

Part of this backtracking is due to peoples natural desire to maintain their “position”. They grow accustom to the idolatry and don’t want to go back to being a “normal” everyday citizen. So they start compromising a little here … take a shortcut there … before you know it, YOU yourself become the RINO you sought to purge.

And then of course there comes the MONEY … and we all know that problem!!!

Awareness of possibility “we” may become what we hate is the best protection. Setting time limits on your own time in office … and developing new Patriot leaders to fill your shoes helps protect against this inevitability.

It is not easy … but George Washington did not want the job to begin with … and he gave the job up freely and went home after two terms.

Ask yourself … would you go home to Mt. Vernon, or crown yourself King? Most pick the latter.

TIP #2: Identify the “new” RINOs

This is a little harder as it requires looking into the character, soul and mental fortitude of others.

If you look closely, you can see it. The character flaws that lead to a person who is more interested in self vs. service. The person who puts their own financial interest over doing what is objectively right for We The People.

Remember … “Don’t replace old RINOs with new RINOs!”

In some limited cases you have folks that just don’t know any better … or are innocent and simply been mislead by others with a more devious self-serving intent. But some will shine bright … they want the POWER, and they will do ANYTHING to get it.

Remember … “Watch what they DO, not what they SAY.”

Show grace … but as Dr. Maya Angelou once said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

TIP #3: Hold Strong!!!

Yes, we must show “grace” and give people opportunities … newly involved folks especially as we all make mistakes … but we can not compromise values & principles … and we definitely can not quit!!!

NeverGiveUp!!! #NeverSurrender!!!

When you get in leadership positions, and “if” you do it right, it is a 24/7 commitment. Expect the crazy … and don’t be shocked at the utter insanity you have to deal with on a daily basis.

Childhood antics of others who are envious or jealous. The uninformed who think they know better and are unwilling to listen. You have to deal with it … but do not let it distract your from MISSION!!!

And know too, there are “infiltrators” (HERE) with their ulterior motives … as well as your unavoidable everyday psychopaths & sociopaths (HERE) … so don’t fall for their tricks. Give them the rope necessary to hang themselves … and just sit back and watch.

Remember, we don’t want to become them … but we also won’t fight with our hands tied behind our backs. Give it time … and trust that no matter what happens, it’s God’s PLAN & God’s TIMING!!!

TIP #4: Find Your Replacement

And here is the key to all success. If you are the right person for the job, meaning you probably don’t want the job in the first place, your #1 objective will be to find your replacement.

Be a mentor FIRST!!!

Seek out the character traits in others that will be servant leaders to your constituents. Seek folks that will put The People FIRST … and not themselves.

It is one of those easy, but hard, things to do in life … but in the political arena, nothing could be more important. Succession planning is standard in big and small business. Shouldn’t it be in politics as well?

TEST IT … ask your elected official or party leader … what character traits are they looking for in someone to be his / her replacement? “Who” are they grooming or mentoring? If they give you a look of shock and confusion … like they have no plans to ever go anywhere (except maybe higher office) … then you know they need to GO!!!

Matthew 28:6



He was mocked, beaten, abused … he was hung on the cross. He conquered the power of sin. He defeated death! He did it for YOU and ME. He did it for the sins of this world. HE IS RISEN!

May the meaning of Easter, the risen Lord, fill your heart with love, compassion and hope.

Happy Easter! 🌿

“He is not here; He has risen, just as He said.”
Matthew 28:6

To repeat from last Sunday (HERE), today is Palm Sunday, the start of Holy Week … the most sacred week! Let’s use this time to reflect on the unfathomable obedience, love and compassion that we are gifted daily, by our Savior.

Happy Sunday!

Upcoming Congressional and State Convention

EVERYONE who is a MAGA / America FIRST state delegate or state alternate should attend



A few months ago we introduced you all to the every FOUR YEAR SCGOP Congressional & State Conventions held prior to the RNC NATIONAL CONVENTION where we will select the GOP Presidential Candidate (HERE).

With South Carolina leading the way … we know that the GOP nominee will be President TRUMP … but very few people seem to know about these upcoming Congressional Conventions or the State Convention.

South Carolina has 50 National Delegates & 50 National Alternates to send to the RNC National Convention this year in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from Monday, July 15th, 2024 – Thursday, July 18th, 2024.

Well … now we know the dates and times for selecting those 50 NATIONAL DELEGATES & 50 NATIONAL ALTERNATES … and EVERYONE who is a MAGA / America FIRST state delegate or state alternate should attend!!! Your attendance is “mandatory” if for no other reason than to “learn” about the process … but to also support your America FIRST candidates for the available positions. #VoteAmericaFIRST!!!

Do you really want Nikki Haley supporters going to the RNC National Convention? Hmmm … think about it.

If you were a STATE DELEGATE or a STATE ALTERNATE … here is the Eventbrite link to register for your respective CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION.

All SCGOP Congressional Conventions: HERE

1st District – Saturday, April 13th at 10AM: HERE

2nd District – Tuesday, April 23rd at 7PM: HERE

3rd District – Saturday, April 13th at 10AM: HERE

4th District – Saturday, April 20th at 9AM: HERE

5th – District – Saturday, April 13th at 10AM: HERE

6th District – Saturday, April 20th at NOON: HERE

7th District – Saturday, April 6th at 10AM: HERE

(*Verify all dates and times on SCGOP Eventbrite)

Yes you should go!!! Reunite with fellow America FIRST friends, learn the process, and support your respective America FIRST candidates.

Elections will consist of a Congressional District Chair, Vice Chair & Secretary … as well as 3 National Delegates + 3 National Alternates.

Be warned however, if you want to be a NATIONAL DELEGATE or ALTERNATE, you will have to cover your own travel and lodging cost which are estimated to be around $3,500 … so don’t run for a spot if you can’t go for the full week or would rather spend your dollars at the beach this summer.

We don’t know the location or time yet … but we do know the STATE CONVENTION will be on Saturday, May 4th, 2024 … presumably somewhere central in the midlands / Columbia / Lexington area.  It will be BIG and like the state convention last May 2023 with 943 STATE DELEGATES & 943 STATE ALTERNATES eligible to attend.

At the convention we will elect the remaining 29 NATIONAL DELEGATES & 29 NATIONAL ALTERNATES.

The 2nd reason to show up for the STATE CONVENTION … we have heard that Drew McKissick and the RINO Establishment want to push through more “Rule Changes”.  They did this to slow down the America FIRST movement with their “Special Called Convention” on July 30th, 2022 … let’s see what tricks they may have in store for us this May 4th, 2024.

The RINOs don’t have the numbers now like they did in 2022 … but we have to SHOW UP!!!

Truth Social … now Publicly Traded!

TRUMP’s personal net worth skyrocketed by $4 BILLION



Yahoo Finance “DJT”:  HERE

Monday March 25th, 2024, will go down in history as a really, really, really GOOD DAY for President TRUMP!!!

First, a New York Appeals Court lowered the insane $454 million court bond payment to appeal the New York AG’s case to an equally insane, but manageable, $175 million bond.  That reduction as well as an extension of 10 days appears to be enough grace for President TRUMP to fulfill the obligation and preserve his properties in the State of New York.

DC_Draino (HERE) had the best meme of the day … 

DC_Draino Video:  HERE

Truth Social goes PUBLIC!!!

  • $4 BILLION!!!

But the YUGE news for President TRUMP from March 25th, 2024, is finally … TRUTH Social will be a publicly traded company … and the stock symbol … get ready for it … DJT!!! You can’t make this up either!!!

The government approval / administrative process which should have taken 3 or 4 months … took TRUTH Social nearly 2 years. No, you really can’t make this up either, and yes this is happening in America, in our Republic.

But as with most bad deed … the finalization of the technical merger to allow TRUTH Social to become a publicly traded company could not have come at a better time as he seemingly solidifies his position for the 2024 November election.

Now with public valuation data, TRUMP’s personal net worth skyrocketed by $4 BILLION sending him onto the Bloomberg 500 wealthiest list for the first time ever … and that is before the 43% stock price increase so far today on the first day of trading.

Good things happen to good people … so keep fighting folks!

The triumph over sin, sacrifice, forgiveness, hope, faith, are few more things to reflect on during this special time …

“And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”
Philippians 2:8

To repeat from last Sunday (HERE), God’s plans for his children unfold in the simplest ways of our daily lives. How often do you question God’s purpose … his plan … and simply ask, why God? 

Happy Sunday!

Candidate Filings

SEI & Campaign Finance Disclosures



SC Ethics Commission – SEI: HERE

This week we have learned how to “track” candidates (HERE) and how much it costs to file to run for office (HERE)! Today, let’s review the Candidate Filings.

Statement of Economic Interests (SEI)

The general idea of the Statement of Economic Interests is as stated, to disclose the candidate’s or elected official’s “economic” or financial interest. Read more about it HERE and in the mySCGOP article below … and have fun looking up the SEI of your favorite politicians!

Campaign Finance Disclosures
Campaign Finance Disclosures (initial, quarterly, pre-election & final) are for reporting the donations and expenditures of candidate’s campaign account. Remember – if you intend to spend any money on your campaign, you will need to open a separate campaign bank account – you cannot use your personal one!

As with any filing, there are deadlines on the Campaign Finance Disclosures that is YOUR responsibility to follow. For State and Local 

candidate campaign filings you would go to  to file while for Federal positions (US House & Senate), you would got to
