February 22 Meeting



1st Reminder

On February 22nd we have the amazing opportunity to host Marjorie Greene as our keynote speaker. Please note the quickly approaching deadline to register! You will not want to miss this!

Marjorie Taylor Greene has a lifetime of business experience, having grown up working in her family’s company. In 2002 Marjorie purchased Taylor Commercial, a commercial construction and renovation company. The company has since managed a quarter of a billion dollars of construction projects.

Marjorie successfully started, grew, and sold a thriving CrossFit gym here in Georgia which has become one of the top CrossFit gyms in the country. She has a unique perspective on how to succeed from the

ground up, through true hard work and financial responsibility.

Marjorie graduated from the University of Georgia and received her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Marjorie has been actively involved in her community, in her children’s schools, and has been active on a national level as the National Director of Family America Project.

Marjorie has a strong Christian faith and believes we must continue to protect our great freedoms and work to keep America a great country for generations to come.

She believes our government is supposed to work for the American people, not foreign nations, lobbyists, or special interests. She ran for Congress to hold our government accountable and ensure that every policy coming out of Washington, D.C. is designed to put America First.

Marjorie has three children, Lauren, Taylor, and Derek. Marjorie believes the best part of her life is being a mother and spending time with her family.

SUPPORTING THE FREEDOM CAUCUS At our December meeting, Freedom Caucus officers, Adam Morgan and Josiah Magnuson, clearly explained their goals for transparency, regular order, and accountability.  Once the session started, the 1st salvo came in from the establishment in the form of a loyalty oath. Such an oath has not been required in previous years. This has created an unfortunate divide in the GOP caucus which has become public. To understand this more deeply, I encourage you to listen/watch our December meeting again.  Click here to view.

Pulling back the curtain on the processes in the Statehouse is challenging some Republicans and their response has been shocking.  Viewing debate from the floor of the House and reading their comments on Twitter is revealing. More on this later. Our FB page has some of these links.  So the board put out this encouraging note on our FB page and it was sent to the all members of the Freedom Caucus.

In the meantime, please call your state rep.  If they are a member of the Freedom Caucus, thank them for standing strong.  If they are not, encourage them to treat the Freedom Caucus members politely.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Senator Lindsey Graham is unable to attend our meeting on Monday, March 16th.  He sincerely regrets that he cannot join us at this time, but this is NOT a cancellation of his visit, only a POSTPONEMENT.  Many of you have probably already heard that Senator Graham was in contact with someone over the weekend who turned out to have the COVID-19 virus.  Out of an abundance of caution, he has chosen to self-quarantine.

We are excited to announce that Trey Gowdy has graciously agreed to step in and serve as our primary speaker. In addition, you will have the opportunity to hear from Bobby Cox, Garry Smith, Jason Elliott, and our newly-elected sheriff, Hobart Lewis.

All RSVPs have already been turned into the Poinsett Club, and the cost will remain $30.00.  Your understanding is greatly appreciated!

I look forward to seeing you on Monday.  We are expecting a much larger group than normal.  Please plan to arrive early to secure parking, and if you are able to carpool with other club members, that would be a great idea.

Best Regards,

Racine Cooper

Ultrasounds cut through pro-abortion lies

National Pro-Life Alliance

The abortion lobby fears the life-saving power of ultrasounds and will say or do anything they can to cover up the truth about abortion. For example, Cecile Richards, the President of the nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood, insisted that ultrasound laws set an “abhorrent precedent.” Of course, what Cecile really “abhors” about ultrasounds is how effective they are at saving lives.

In fact, a nationwide study has revealed that 78% of abortion-minded women who view an ultrasound image of their unborn baby reject abortion and choose life for their babies. That’s because ultrasounds compel women to recognize something the abortion lobby cannot tolerate — that unborn babies are just as human as you or I. That’s why your National Pro-Life Alliance continues to push for tough ultrasound laws at the state and federal levels to show mothers the truth — that abortion ends a human life.

By requiring that every abortionist show the mother an ultrasound of her child before performing an abortion, you and I can literally save thousands of unborn lives.

For Life,
Martin Fox, President
National Pro-Life Alliance
P.S. If you haven’t already done so, please click here to sign your petition in support of the Ultrasound Informed Consent Act.

New Members for GCRWC attending April meeting


Read SC Policy Council article here.


PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE AND ASK HIM/HER TO VOTE AGAINST H. 5368.  This is a bill introduced by outgoing Rep. Walt McLeod on Wednesday, May 18th.  The unstated goal of this bill is to intimidate citizens from testifying at House or Senate subcommittee or committee hearings.  The two main parts of the bill are: 1.  to require testimony given at committee or subcommittee hearings to be given under oath, and 2. anyone who “willfully gives false, materially misleading, or materially incomplete testimony under oath is guilty of contempt of the General assembly.”  The first offense of contempt of the General Assembly is a misdemeanor, punishable by a $100 minimum fine, a six-month imprisonment, or both.  The second offense is a felony and carries a minimum prison sentence of five years, or a fine at the discretion of the court.
As pointed out by the SC Policy Council, “the terms ‘materially misleading’ and ‘materially incomplete’ could mean just about anything. If a testifying citizen misstated a statistic or failed to mention a point lawmakers felt to be essential, would that open the citizen to a SLED investigation?”
The bill was introduced “without reference”, so it bypassed the committee process and will go to the House floor for debate probably Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.  CALL YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE AND TELL HIM/HER TO VOTE AGAINST THIS BILL, THE SOUL PURPOSE OF WHICH IS TO STIFLE OUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

Contact your representative here.

A Review of the South Carolina Department of Transportation

Follow this link to see the video of Representative Jonathon Hill giving one of the best floor speeches probably ever given at the SC Legislature:

Rather than pass Hill’s amendment, the House passed Amendment 1A proposed by House leadership, which offers little in the way of true reform.  H.3579, with Amendment 1A, has been sent back to the Senate.  (Exerpt from Legislative Article by Debbie Spaugh)

Posted April 8: The SC legislators still have not acted on the Personhood Amendment. Visit Personhood South Carolina website.

Refugee bill sent to South Carolina House

NOW is a critical time in our state house regarding the refugee issue because S997 has passed
the Senate and is on the way to the House. Remember we have so much more influence at the
state level than at the federal level, that is why it is so important to form a good, friendly
relationship with your state representatives. (Read more)

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” — Anne Frank

This is an Action Alert regarding the “Roads Bill”, H.3579, which was amended by
the Senate (Amendment 31A), passed on 3/9/2016, and returned to the House.
As I pointed out in my article in the GCRWC March Newsletter, the Senate version
did remove the gas tax hike, but failed to make real reforms to the transportation
funding system. The House will probably take up H.3579, with Amendment 31A
the week of April 11th.
We need to call or email our State Representatives and urge them to kill the bill.
The citizens of South Carolina want real reforms. Read more.

This is a link to an article about funding of I-185. According to this, no tax dollars were used to build it or maintain it. The tolls are used to pay the bond debt and to pay the DOT for maintenance.
