Judicial Reform in SC – the Chad Connelly (false) Sworn Affidavit

See the below example of needed judicial reform and how a SC Court ruled on a (false) sworn affidavit



We have had a ton of people reach out to us about our October 6th article showing one example of why we need judicial reform … The Appeal of Davis v. Leupp (HERE) … but if you enjoyed that, wait until you see the below example of needed judicial reform and how a SC Court ruled on a (false) sworn affidavit for a politically connected player … Chad Connelly.

Perjury is a CRIME, right? A felony, right? YES, yes it is!!!

2024 SC Judicial Reform

Know that Judicial Reform is the talk of political circles right now … and folks will be pushing it hard in 2024 from both the Right & the Left. What we have seen talked about so far are relative half measures … i.e., changing the composition of the Judicial Merit Selection Committee (JMSC) – not getting rid of the JMSC entirely and not “real” judicial reform. But we suspect there will be much more to talk about than little tweaks as voters learn exactly how bad it is in our SC Courts. Stay tuned …

A Head Scratcher Example

It has been THREE years now … and still ongoing … but this example starts with a February 12th, 2020, Declaratory Judgment Lawsuit filed simply asking the SC Courts to:

1. IMMEDIATELY STOP Chad Connelly & his Board from taking out excessive administrative fees from the 100% government run non-profit Exceptional SC (our state’s failed and Nation’s worst rated K-12 school choice program) … and

2. DECLARE exactly how the law is supposed to be interpreted as the SC Department of Revenue was not enforcing the law as directed and K-12 children with special needs were suffering.

The problem … Chad Connelly, the former SCGOP Chairman, current Newberry County GOP State EC, Drew McKissick’s mentor, and buddy to Attorney General Alan Wilson and a ton of other legislators … filed a false sworn affidavit with the SC Court in Newberry essentially saying that if the Court cut off his personal $11,300 / month payment and other overhead expenses, children would suffer as he was doing much better at that time and had raised $1,045,000 in the past 21 days thus justifying his fee and going over the established legal limits for administrative overhead.

Say what??? Yes, we were equally perplexed as you can’t break the law just because you are Chad Connelly … or can you??? The law is the law and has to be followed, right???

THE LIE / PERJURY: Even worse … Chad and Exceptional SC had not raised $1,045,000 over the applicable past 21-day period as Chad falsely swore in his affidavit. Documents later surfaced that he had only procured $99,201 in non-binding “pledges”, not even donations, and nowhere close to $1,045,000 in the cash donations Chad claimed while under SC Department of Revenue supervision!!!

No, we did not believe the original sworn affidavit … but once we got the proof we filed a MOTION FOR PERJURY, CONTEMPT, AND SANCTIONS FOR FALSE AFFIDAVIT. How did the Newberry Court rule? The Court refused to do anything … simply saying they “did not rely” on the false sworn affidavit in ruling that I, as plaintiff and a donor to Exceptional SC, did not have standing to file the declaratory judgment lawsuit. Those two rulings are under appeal right now (see legal filings below).

Seriously??? The Court “did not rely” upon the perjured Sworn Affidavit Chad Connelly filed with the Court … so it is OK and he gets a pass???

The Court may not have “relied” upon the false & perjured Sworn Affidavit … but it was false, it was perjury, and it was filed with the SC Court in an effort to defeat the Declaratory Judgement Lawsuit … keep his $11,300 monthly payments coming … and it was filed to cover up the wrongdoing. However, we did not quit and found the PROOF that it was false. #NeverSURRENDER!

WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO YOU? What do you think would have happened if you or I filed a false sworn affidavit with a SC Court? I can assure you I would probably be in jail to this day. But not the politically connected Chad Connelly … he is buddies with Governor McMaster & Lt. Governor Pamela Evette … so he slides by … or will he? Well that is not right and that is not equal application of the law … hence, our needed SC JUDICIAL REFORM!!!

Perjury is a CRIME

Yes, perjury is a crime and a serious crime … in fact it is a Class F “felony” with up to 5 years in prison … and nowhere in the law does it state that it is ok to disregard perjury just because the Court “did not rely” upon the false sworn affidavit.

SLED Investigation

Oh … it get’s worse. What was even more serious here was the fact that at the time, Chad Connelly was also under SC State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) investigation for a complaint I filed alleging EMBEZZELMENT. Chad and the Exceptional SC Board were taking out more money in overhead expenses … significantly more … and technically that appears to read as EMBEZZELMENT.

See the image and description below. What do you think?

And don’t forget … Chad had me “barred” from the SC State Executive Committee Meetings because he said I lied about him being under SLED investigation … and I’m still banned from those meetings to this day even though I am the duly elected State Executive Committeeman from the Greenville County Republican Party … all for TELLING THE TRUTH. (HERE)

So, was Chad trying to cover up a crime? It appears so to me … but what will “career prosecutors” at the Attorney General’s Office say?

AG to Prosecute?

Tomorrow we will have for you what law enforcement and SC Attorney General Alan Wilson’s Office has to say about prosecuting this case … stay tuned. 😉

Case Update

Huge WIN!: Just to put everything in perspective, the original case itself was technically dismissed due to “standing” (sound familiar?) and is currently under appeal (including this perjury issue) … but the end result is that we “won” as Chad Connelly, the Executive Director & Tom Persons, the Chairman were both let go / resigned (to put it kindly) from Exceptional SC (the Nation’s worst rated K-12 private school choice program) in July 2020 during and because of this case. Although we had been telling the SC Department of Revenue and legislators that Chad Connelly was violating the law … nothing was done until we filed this lawsuit and brought more public attention to the matter.

Good news for the kids … bad news for the witnessing of exactly how corrupt our system is.

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.”

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!

“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

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.

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
