TRUMP Derangement Syndrome (TDS) (HERE) … we have all heard of it … pulled our hair out over it … and for those of us that like to get into the details and use critical thinking skills, we feel like it is utter insanity!!!!
Yes, we now know not to (generally) trust the mainstream media … and we know to ignore the “crazies” like the screaming lady pictured above who is now the posterchild for TDS … but what do you do when someone you KNOW PERSONALLY exhibits the exact same traits of derangement syndrome?
What do you do when a fellow County Executive Committeeman (EC) starts saying things that are objectively and provably FALSE?
What do you do when someone you have to work with personally won’t listen to ANY REASON whatsoever? Won’t meet and “talk”? Won’t open their email or look at a single document?
And worst of all … what do you do when “others” believe that person and act / vote based on what that person says?
It is a real quandary and frankly we believe this local “derangement syndrome” is ripping our communities and our Country apart … and is certainly rampant here in South Carolina and within the SCGOP and local County GOPs.
LOCAL DERANGEMENT SYNDROME:
The “Sauna Meeting” (HERE, HERE & HERE) is going to go down in SCGOP history as the perfect learning example of what is going on with this derangement syndrome that has seeped down into local politics.
The example is extreme in that you have an otherwise reasonable appearing person (Jeff Magg) claiming the Greenville County Republican Party (GCRP) does not have a required “budget” … but that same person is the one who created the budget (as the elected Treasurer at the time), called it a budget, presented the budget for passage to the GCRP EC Body (on video 2/7/2022), and voted for the budget at least twice.
And worse … this same person (Jeff Magg), a local Greenville Precinct EC and the former GCRP Treasurer … led a group of other individuals to call an “emergency” Special Meeting with less than 48 hours notice over the issue (that the Budget he prepared & presented in 2022, now never existed) … and other people actually believed him.
And he wasn’t alone … a local attorney and former GCRP Chairman from the 1990s (Stephen Brown, Esq.) supported Jeff Magg, egged him on, and helped orchestrate the entire “Sauna Meeting” debacle. It is bizarre … so folks need to ask themselves, “what is really going on?”
[NOTE: Some people have issues … like the TDS posterchild lady above … while others, for their own personal and political motives, are purposefully stoking derangement syndrome in uninformed individuals – and those people need to be EXPOSED!!! This selfish mental manipulation (HERE, HERE & HERE) is what we want everyone to learn to identify … and we must if we want to Save South Carolina & Save America.]
JUST THE FACTS:
February 3rd, 2023: The GCRP Executive Board, including Jeff Magg & Stephen Brown, met at the GCRP HQ and both voted in favor (7-1) to approve the 2022 Budget & $1,250 Lease Terms.
Feb. 6, 2022: Jeff Magg submits Budget to Chairman Davis.
Feb. 7, 2022: Jeff Magg (as Treasurer) presents Budget to the full GCRP EC Body.
March 1, 2022: Jeff Magg quits as GCRP Treasurer after asked to prepare appropriate financial statements.
March 7, 2022: GCRP EC Body UNANIMOUSLY (less 1) passes 2022 Budget and Lease.
Jan. 31, 2023: GCRP EC Body renews exact same Budget for 2023.
September 14th, 2023: Jeff Magg leads a less than 48 hour notice emergency “Special Meeting” and state to the GCRP EC Body that:
- He has never seen a Budget (even though Jeff Magg prepared the Budget and presented it to the GCRP EC Body when he was Treasurer).
- GCRP does not have a Budget (even though Jeff Magg voted to approve the Budget and lease terms at least twice).
- GCRP did not have access to HQ until mid-March 2022 so we should not have paid rent starting 1/1/2022, even though the GCRP had full 24/7 access starting 12/15/2021 and had numerous events at the building (and Jeff Magg personally attended such events / meetings).

FEEDBACK: You always have to check … “are we the crazy ones?” WE don’t think their side ever asks themselves that question, but we do, and we think that is what will keep us on the path of TRUTH.
But give us your feedback? What do you see happening locally with these deranged actions by some? We have heard all sorts of reasons from psychopathy liars, to the effects of the COVID vaccine (or shedding for those who are not vaccinated) … up to demon possessed. We don’t know, but send us your thoughts at team@mySCGOP.com.
If we do not fix this … and get people “talking” to one another … will it ever end?
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, silence in the face of evil
Silence in the face of Evil is itself Evil
(Feb 4th, 1906 – April 9th, 1945)
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (HERE) was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian and anti-Nazi dissident. His writings on Christianity’s role in the secular world have become widely influential; his 1937 book The Cost of Discipleship (HERE) is described as a modern classic.
Apart from his theological writings, Bonhoeffer was known for his staunch resistance to the Nazi dictatorship, including vocal opposition to Adolf Hitler’s euthanasia program and genocidal persecution of the Jews. He was arrested in April 1943 by the Gestapo and imprisoned at Tegel Prison for one-and-a-half years. Later, he was transferred to Flossenbürg concentration camp.
Bonhoeffer was accused, tired, and convicted (with no evidence) of being associated with the July 20th, 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler … and hanged on April 9th, 1945 during the collapse of the Nazi regime.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer is certainly someone in history to know (HERE). We need more like him today.
Bonhoeffer Wikipedia Article: HERE
None of this political stuff is complicated. Politicians and others make it complicated in an effort to avoid the HARD decisions … and to do what they want vs. what they know in their heart is right.
Talk long enough … analyze a situation long enough … and otherwise rational and Godly individuals can “justify” anything. Group think and the echo chamber so many politicians seem to enjoy as they play their political games and try to climb the ladder is what got America in this problem … while following simple principles of right vs. wrong are the only thing that can get us out of this mess.
“Silence in the face of Evil is itself Evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to Speak is to Speak. Not to Act is to Act.”
We were introduced to Bonhoeffer’s above simple principle when we first got involved in politics and school choice advocacy … and it has been a guiding principle in all we do and how we MEASURE others.
How many people in the face of obvious evil speak up? How many politicians are silent when they see obvious wrongs? Children suffer while folks that can fix it fail to act. What type of person would do that?
Do we promote these people, or do we expose them for who they truly are?
Bonhoeffer died for his beliefs. It was the ultimate price, and he paid it because he remained TRUE while others failed to speak up and act out due to their own SELF-INTEREST and FEAR.
History … and God … will not hold us guiltless. ACT!!! SPEAK!!!
Illinois Democrat Supermajority Kills School Choice
Will SC Do Better?
This past week the Illinois Democrat Supermajority failed to renew 5-year, $75 million per-year, school choice tax credit program serving 9,600 low-income children each year.
This was only the second state to “go backwards” … SC being the first in 2016 when the government took over the $8 million Exceptional Needs program making it the first 100% government run school choice tax credit program in the Nation – and now the worst rated private school choice program in the Nation as well. But Illinois is a SUPERMAJORITY Democrat legislature … both their House & Senate … so it is no real big surprise. The only real surprise was Illinois passed it in the first place back in 2017.
Center Square Article: HERE
Even the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board stepped into the conversation calling out Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker (of the Hyatt family – see HERE) and the national and state teachers unions for killing the program.
9,600 low-income children in the program … 20,000 low-income kids on the waiting list … and the DEMOCRATS and a billionaire Governor kill it?!?!?
Wall Street Journal Editorial: HERE
Our SC Legislature will however have the opportunity to do better … better than an Illinois Democrat Supermajority … and put South Carolina at the top of the list in School Choice when they go back into session on Tuesday, January 9th, 2024.
What will SC House Leadership do? What will your SC House Rep. do?
It is going to be a very educational legislative session … and the first indicator will be the PACE / ACE Scholarship Bill (S 285).
Stay tuned … and call your personal SC House Rep to ask them what they think. It is a great opportunity to speak with your SC House Rep.

Where to Find Election Results?
Where in the heck do we find election results?!
Election Results from SC Votes: HERE
First of all … congratulations to all your candidates that won their elections yesterday (or moved forward to a run-off) … and for those of your candidates that did not make it … just remember that it is easier to surrender than to fight the battle. #NeverSurrender!
Consider too that most of the elected officials you know today … the ones that seem so “in control” and just “could not lose” … check their electoral history. Most lost their first election, and maybe even their second. Don’t throw away the knowledge and experience you have gained even in a lose … RUN AGAIN!!!
Imagine the world today if Winston Churchill & Great Britain had decided to surrender to Nazi Germany …
Sept. 1, 1939 – Germany Invades Poland
Sept. 3, 1939 – England declares war on Germany
May 10, 1940 – Chamberlin resigns & Churchill becomes Prime Minister
June 4, 1940 – Churchill’s NEVER SURRENDER Speech
Dec. 11, 1941 – US Declares War on Germany
Now … where in the heck do we find election results?!?!?! One would think that it would be easy to find results, but it really isn’t.
(1) INTERNET SEARCH / SOCIAL MEDIA: Don’t trust it, verify everything … but the fastest and easiest route is a quick internet search, or “X” (fka Twitter), or your local news agencies. We hate to even suggest it, but as you will see below there is no consolidated and easy “official” route to find elections results here in South Carolina.
Millions & millions, actually tens of millions in tax dollars spent on elections … and no centralized and official one-stop-shop resource in South Carolina to find all election results. If they can’t do the simple things right, it really makes you wonder if the hard stuff is being done right.
[NOTE: It should also be noted that RESULTS ARE NOT OFFICIAL generally until they are certified by their respective Board of Elections, usually on Thursday or Friday after election day. These certification meetings are official and open to the public … you should go and watch.]
(2) SCVotes.gov: Our best statewide official resource is the SC State Election Commission (SEC) located at www.SCVotes.gov. There is tons of information there and if you are involved in politics in any form or fashion you should know this website backwards and forwards.
The ELECTION RESULTS are specifically located HERE. But be prepared, it is not as intuitive as it should be, so expect to have to “hen peck” around to find the specific races you are looking for … and even then, some municipalities & towns don’t report through the state website. Geez … wouldn’t it be interesting to know the “drama” behind that why.
(3) Local County Board of Elections: If the information is not on SCVotes.gov … like Greenville, Horry, Chesterfield, and the towns of Iva, Jamestown & Coward … check with your local County Board of Elections. You can find contact information for all 46 County Boards HERE.
As with the SC State Election Commission website which we should all know backwards and forwards … we should all know our local COUNTY Board of Elections website backwards and forwards as well. Knowledge is Power!!!
