Monthly Meeting

Beaufort TEA Party
Thanks you!

Many of you worked hard to help get many candidates elected.  Regrettably, it did not include the election of Katie Arrington.  Maybe, we'll lhave another chance in 2020.

Thank you!

Now that the 2018 Mid Term Elections are over, we can take a deep breath and look forward to the upcoming Holidays.  It is a much needed breather before we gear up for the 2020 Presidential Elections.

With that in mind, the Beaufort TEA Party wishes you an Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year.  Enjoy the time with loved ones.

We will meet up January 21, 2019.

Below, you will see a message from Beaufort County GOP Chairwoman Sherri Zedd.  It is a wonderful message, but proves we must stay vigilant and carry this surge into 2020!

 

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

 

We did it!  Due to the hard work and commitment of all of you we had a very successful election in Beaufort County and secured another sweep of all Statewide Constitutional offices.. I am so proud of the work we did together.. This was an important election for our state, county and country.

 

There was a huge voter turnout for a midterm election – 71,329 voters or 58.25 % of all eligible voters. Republicans led in straight ticket voting. 18,550 to 26,611 (41.37% to 59.12%)  Our hard work in the campaign offices generated a large portion of this turnout.. Although Katie Arrington lost the race for the First Congressional District, Beaufort County was her strongest county with 54.25% of voters voting for her. 

 

However, we also need to be cognizant that the Democrats also greatly increased their turnout, which was a factor in their capturing the First Congressional District seat.  The Indivisibles and other Democrats are strongly motivated by their opposition to President Trump.  In coordination with a national organization, whose mission is to elect more Democrats and flip national, state and local legislative bodies from red to blue, the Beaufort County Democrat Party fielded many more candidates than they have in the past and we believe they will have even more candidates running in 2020I’ve attached a spreadsheet of Beaufort County results.  We won or retained: all SC Constitutional offices; all Republican SC House Seats; all Beaufort County-wide offices and all Beaufort County Republican Council seats. 

 

We really appreciate that so many of you helped us in so many ways. Below is brief overview of things the BCRP accomplished with your help:

 

PRIMARIES

  • Public Forums held for all candidates for key local, state and federal offices
  • Many BCRP Web postings advertising campaign events and providing insight into the candidates. 
  • Coordination with Press
  • Coordination with all area Republican Clubs

MIDTERM ELECTIONS

  • Worked closely with South Carolina Republican Party (SCGOP)
  • Coordinated with the SCGOP Victory efforts
  • Held Campaign Workshop with the SCGOP Chairman and Executive Director for Beaufort and Jasper County GOP leaders
  • Operated two Beaufort County Republican Campaign Headquarter -- Bluffton-Jasper-Beaufort and Hilton Head Island
  • Worked closely with all Republican Candidate campaigns
  • Coordinated with Hilton Head Island Republican Club and Arrington campaign on massive, successful Election Eve rally for Katie Arrington featuring Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Gilfoyle. 
    • This event was organized in about 29 hours.
  • Many candidate events were held in various locations around the county.
    • These events required a great deal of coordination due to the multiple locations as well as scheduling, publicizing and press coverage.
    • Some of the stand-out events, that were very well attended included: both Campaign Headquarters Grand Openings; Breakfast with Senator Lindsey Graham; and two campaign events for Governor Henry McMaster.
    • The Hilton Head Island Campaign Headquarters held weekly candidate and issue events
  • Get Out the Vote (GOTV) calls to all hard and weak Republicans in every Beaufort County precinct.
  • Participated in the SCGOP automated GOTV Call Effort (I-360)
  • Coordinated with the press on multiple events and issues
  • Assisted with speakers for various Republican meetings
  • Posted multiple up-to-date articles on issues and events on the BCRP website (beaufortgop.com), as well as candidate information. 
  • Maintained BCRP Facebook Page
  • Developed a comprehensive REPUBLICAN email list.  This list presently contains 14,000 emails. The BCRP will continue to build this list so that Republican message can be widely disseminated. 
    • Sent our first 10 targeted email messages this fall
  • Expanded and improved our use of technology and social media
  • Recruited 200+ volunteers between the two Campaign HQ
  • Organized 6+ door knocking sessions.
  • Held 10+ sign waves
  • Mailed over 2,000 GOTV postcards to promote absentee voting, particularly in-person absentee vote
  • Contacted all Republicans who moved into Beaufort County to ensure that they were registered to vote
  • Bought paid ads for Beaufort County Candidate team in 4 key publications

 

As we celebrate our victories we need to be aware that 2020 is right around the corner.. We are now in the run-up to a Presidential election and 2020 is predicted to be a hard fought battle against Democrats and Indivisibles who are strongly motivated by their obsessive hatred of President Trump.. Therefore, we must use this next two years to increase our effectiveness.

WE MUST RE-ELECT DONALD TRUMP AND ENSURE THAT ALL OTHER REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES WIN!! 

 

Beaufort and South Carolina Democrats are also energized because of their First Congressional District victoryWe will be keeping a close eye on Congressman-Elect Cunningham and we will be informing Beaufort County Republicans about his votes that do not reflect the views of the First Congressional District.  He may have publicly postured that he will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker – this is window dressing.  As shown from the voting records of Democrats elected from Conservative areas in 2006, these Representatives were only allowed to sporadically take a Conservative vote.  Pelosi cracks the whip and distributes favors to get legislation passed but if she has enough votes to win, she will occasionally allow a Representative to vote contrary to the Democrat Party’s position.  Even if Pelosi is not elected as Speaker, Democrats will still be united and the party’s House Members will be expected to vote in lock step with the leadership. 

 

I’d like to thank the BCRP Officers and the Presidents of Republican Clubs in Beaufort County as well as the Jasper County Republican Party.  In addition, Debra Schutz and the Women for Trump also volunteered in many areas -- their efforts and enthusiasm were greatly appreciated. 

 

As we begin the process of planning and organizing we hope you will renew your BCRP membership, recruit new members, volunteer and keep informed by frequently visiting our web site. 

 

Again, thank you for your support. Onto 2020!!

School Safety Ideas

 
 
 
School Safety Ideas
The following websites offer passive alternatives to neutralizing the threats of an active shooter or other threats presented on campus:


Crotega provides a remotely deployed threat suppression system that drenches the perpetrator with a repulsive solution, impairing their ability to enact violence. Threat suppression is the next step in life safety and interior building security. http://www.crotega.com/

Executive Wood Products, a 36-year wood products manufacturing company, formed the Protection Division immediately following 9/11. After five years of Research and Development the company began selling Anti-Ballistic products to the United States Government, churches, and private business.

The Executive Wood Products position is not self-serving, the Tactical Scholar™ is priced well below market value and the company offers free White-Glove™ delivery to ensure schools can quickly buy and install what they need.

Video of their panels in use!  Watch Here

While New Baptist Church is a private school they have a more aggressive approach to school safety.  Just as we train our children in Fire Drills, we need "Active Shooter Drills and Training.".  See the video of this small school and how we can adopt some of their tactics in combination with the above ideas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AK4_ogsh0Po
 
 

We Need You To Act Now!

 
In the May 2017 meeting, we discussed
The National Popular Vote Movement.


Here is the information.
This Is No Joke!
Actual Legislation To Subvert The Constitution & Steal Your Vote!

Click on the below links & watch the YouTube Video.

Don't stop there!  Pass this to as many people
as possible, then contact your state Representatives & Senators.
Reach out to people you know out-of-state and pass this information on to them!

They are only 5 states away from making this happen.
They will dictate for whom the Electoral College Delegates MUST vote for in the Presidential Elections.

Red State, Blue State or Split State Delegates MUST Vote only ONE WAY, The Progressive's Way!

We will NEVER see another Republican President again, if they succeed!

This BLEW my mind!  This is HUGE!!! We got to fight this!
National Popular Vote Compact.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/protectyourvote/

This movement is tied directly to Barack Obama and George Soros.  They want to bypass the U.S. Constitution, destroy the Electoral College and go by "The Popular Vote".

Think about that!  By passing these "Compacts" through State Legislation and going by "The Popular Vote"


HILLARY CLINTON would be our President!

The handful of states, like California, New York and New Jersey, would control and dictate the Presidential Elections.

If they can do that, what is next?

A THIRD TERM for Barack Obama?

Republican Party - NO MORE RINO's!

 

Recently, the Beaufort GOP has undergone a restructuring with new leadership in place.  Their web site which was not updated has a new look and better information and news access.

Jim Riordon the the new chair and is very much aligned with TEA Party and Conservative principles.

I encourage you to visit the page.  BeaufortGOP.com

Beaufort County has over 90 Republican Precincts and less than half of them have the leadership seated.  If we are to help exercise our TEA Party values, I highly suggest if you live and vote in one of the empty precincts you volunteer to take the open positions.  Open positions are for the Precinct President, who organizes the precinct and schedules and presides over the meetings, and the Executive Committee-person, who votes on policy issues and attends all County meetings.  ** These are two important positions, especially of the Executive Committee-person, who actively shapes policies in the County GOP. ***

If you are unsure what precinct you vote in, go to http://www.scvotes.org/ and check your registration. 

Open Precincts are:

  • Beaufort 1 
  • Burton 1B
  • Burton 1C
  • Burton 1D
  • Burton2A
  • Burton2B
  • Burton 3
  • Dale/Lobeco
  • Lady's Island 1A
  • Lady's Island 2C
  • Lady's Island 2B
  • Lady's Island 3B
  • Lady's Island3C
  • Port Royal 1
  • Port Royal 2
  • St. Helena's 1A
  • St. Helena's 2A
  • St. Helena's 2C
  • Seabrook 2
  • Seabrook 3
  • Sheldon 1
  • Sheldon 2
