Lexington Update … SCGOP State EC Meeting TODAY!

Will Drew McKissick act today?



The 4th Quarter SCGOP State Executive Committee meeting is usually a “sleepy” affair followed by a “Christmas Party” at the Governor’s Mansion.

Having only four meetings a year of the 46 County Republican State Executive Committee (and one being a “no business” holiday affair) is one problem … but today the SCGOP State Executive Committee faces another problem …

Why are there TWO Lexington County Republican Parties???

Well, there really isn’t two … but there is a “splinter group” in Lexington purporting to be the LCRP. This “faux” LCRP is actually out there raising donations under the auspices of being the actual LCRP … their leader is showing up at GOP events and holding himself out as the LCGP “Chairman” … and they have actually been endorsing candidates for office using the official LCRP branding.

It is absolute bizzarro world … and many believe it to be CRIMINAL.

Wouldn’t it be “criminal fraud” to go out there raising money saying you were the “Make A Wish Foundation” … and you really were not the “Make A Wish Foundation”? Can you go out there and gather “Toys for Tots” … and then take the toys to your kids at home? YES, it is a real problem and it should be discussed at today’s SCGOP State Executive Committee meeting in Columbia.

We have reported on this Lexington GOP issue several times HERE & HERE … but it is now appears to be coming to a head.

“It will fall into a state of disrepair, become a complete dumpster fire and essentially be a leper colony for the next year and a half,” McKissick said.

In its place, McKissick suggested that “sane Republicans” might end up creating separate GOP clubs in the Greenville area for people who want to stay focused on the core party functions of supporting Republican candidates.

“We will help them do that in every way,” McKissick said.

Post & Courier, July 8, 2021 (HERE)

Remember in 2021 when America FIRST Patriots – otherwise known as platform Republicans – voted out the RINOs in Greenville County and SCGOP Chairman Drew McKissick called them all “lepers” and vowed to establish “GOP clubs” to work around the duly elected leadership in Greenville and several other counties? (HERE, HERE & HERE)

Well, two and a half years later the “absolutely insane” Greenville mySCGOP group has been re-elected … and other America FIRST counties like Lexington have followed suit … but it appears Drew McKissick is still at it with his splinter group “GOP clubs”.

This time however, one Drew McKissick aligned “GOP club” in Lexington has taken it to a new level … they actually call themselves the “Lexington County Republican Party”. Like they are the real LCRP.


The “splinter group” GOP club in Lexington is basing their claim by saying that the duly elected Chair, Pamela Godwin, has been “recalled”.

[NOTE: This news outlet has requested a copy of the rules and applicable supporting documentation from the “splinter group” on several occasions with no response.]

The real problem however … the SCGOP Rules do not allow for “recall” of an elected party official … and this has been a longstanding position of Drew McKissick himself since being elected chair in 2016 … and there are no records of anyone ever being “recalled” in SCGOP history that we can find.

So, it appears no precinct Executive Committeeman (EC), no precinct President … and most assuredly no county convention (or state convention) elected official has ever been “recalled” despite numerous attempts to do so over the past few years. And each time it was attempted … Drew McKissick himself stopped it as a violation of SCGOP Party Rules … but that was for his supporters, and this time it is different. Rules for thee, but not for me? We shall see.

[NOTE: For example, it has been reported that several years ago the Chairwoman in Anderson County, Cheryl Teague-Cuthrell, was voted out UNANIMOUSLY by the Anderson Executive Committee … and Drew personally overruled the ousting stating that the SCGOP does not have any recall provisions for an elected chairman.]

This has been an ongoing issue for months now … since August … and reportedly Drew McKissick (as well as several party and elected officials) have confirmed privately that Pamela Godwin is still the Chair of the Lexington County Republican Party … and the “splinter group” is only a GOP club.

But the statement that Pamela Godwin remains the official Chair has not been made publicly by Drew since this mess was started by his “splinter group” … and you just can’t have a 2nd group calling themselves the official LCRP … can you? Not if you want to protect the GOP brand.

So the big question is will Drew McKissick act today at the SCGOP State Executive Committee meeting … or will Drew continue to kick this can down the road?

Numerous GOP leaders from across South Carolina are asking if we cannot protect the “brand” of the SCGOP … what good is the brand? If we are not a party of rule followers … what are we? If we don’t protect the election integrity of GOP party officials from our bi-annual ReOrg and County Conventions … have we abandoned all efforts for real Election Integrity?

OPENING A MASSIVE CAN OF WORMS: And if Drew flipflops and now allows for “recall” … can you imagine all the precincts, counties, and state delegates that may have buyer’s remorse and want to recall their current GOP party officials? It will become a full-time job of the SCGOP to handle recall efforts from top to bottom … in all 2,261 precincts and all 46 counties.

So, as the Governor and First Lady await the arrival tonight of the SCGOP State Executive Committee leaders from 46 counties … will any work be done to address this issue … or will there be faux precinct, county and state officials popping up all over South Carolina tomorrow … claiming to be the real deal?

Maybe even a new self-proclaimed SCGOP Chairman … wouldn’t that create turmoil in the SCGOP!!!

What a massive can of worms inaction could open up.

Stay tuned … an update tomorrow for sure.


Happy Sunday – March 31st, 2024

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!

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
