Texas Women’s Coalition for Donald J. Trump

I was supportive of the massive group of ladies marching on Washington DC until it turned into a witch hunt.  Madonna seriously needs to stfu We should  recall her outrageous table top book and constant publicly grabbing her own pu–Y!!!   I can confirm there are more than a million women in this country that didnt march and couldn’t march who do not feel this way or allow women like this to influence them and I feel like giving Hollywood the middle finger.

Speaking of strong women who care about women rights… I recently had the pleasure of connecting with thousands of dynamic women from the state of Texas and Nationally that support Mr Trump and whom are officially the Texas Women’s Coalition for Donald J. Trump.

The pre election and post election coalition is comprised of smart, dynamic professional women.  These women work tirelessly to connect with pretty much every person in the United States in order to talk about Donald J. Trump for President and his efforts and  goals to Make America Great Again.  These women organize rallies, street sign parties & media events.

The coalition is choc full of leaders!  One wonderful woman who has a very full plate is Katrina Pierson seen regularly on National News setting fake news reporters straight about the facts around Donald J. Trump and his agenda.  Also leading our Texas team were a few good men, people like  Joshua Jones, Eric Mahroun and everyone’s local hero Mr. Paul Lemmon. Paul is always there in the trenches helping us keep things rolling along .

The support was strong and it was impressive during the primaries and the election and has carried forward to post election drama.  I have to say that when I wrote the thriller Waking the Dragon which is a novel about a corrupt US Presidential election I never imagined I would be involved in the very election scenarios I wrote about.

Stay tuned ..

Welcome to Washington Donald J. Trump

It has been a long road to the White House and Donald Trump has learned a thing to two on the path to becoming President and leader of the Free World.   I welcome him as the new President and I welcome a long overdue emergence of law and order and the overload of Political Correctness has to be finished and done.  I welcome secure borders and I welcome all of the economic greatness that is coming back to America.  I welcome Donald and Melania Trump and know that we are going to be Great and the new leaders will Make America Great Again.  I have the pleasure in knowing a few of the new staffers and leaders and I am convinced that they have the knowledge and integrity to get things done for this country, things that have not been done for a long time – if ever.

Unfortunately the fake news is out in full force in order to try and ruin our new President and his wife’s reputation.  Everyone in the media writing BS about them should be ashamed of yourselves. If you have ever had #fakenews written about you -YOU might know what if feels like.  I personally know what #FAKENEWS feels like –  And I know that people who are jealous like to write fake news about you.  With that said Mr. & Mrs. Trump  I welcome you and congratulate you along with my millions of fellow #deplorables.  MAGA.

2 cents on immigrants of all shapes sizes and economic backgrounds legal and illegal:

Photo: Pamela Martin &  Jeff Sessions (US Attorney General) RNC Convention Dallas Texasimg_9869 -Immigrants today have to understand how fortunate they are to have the benefit to come to America, and while you are at it, it would be great to keep in mind the fact that YOU left your birth country to come here for a better life. Whateaver the reason you came here  you should  contribute to have a better life by supporting keeping the borders safe.   So, when you are spewing about your newly found, bought or otherwise married into citizenship, consider the opinions of natural born Americans and  take into consideration just why you left your birth country in the first place?  Was it for an education and you never went back?  Was it to find a husband or wife? Was it for a medical reason? Political upheaval?  There are many reasons people immigrate legally and illegally.   Consider the feelings of those that were born in America and how they feel about illegal immigrants ranting and protesting. Wake up people illegal immigrants are “using” our hard earned  tax dollars on entitlements, bad ideas and pushing their bs agendas.  Agendas that wont benefit you in any way.  I support keeping tax dollars and entitlements for the elderly and vets.

Personally I feel America can sleep better at night knowing that #DonaldJ.Trump is their President. He won because the majority of this country agree with him and are now happy he is doing what he promised.

  • Finally the truth is coming out.
  • It is said – ‘Truth alone triumphs; not falsehood’. There is nowhere to escape from the laws that protect people from harassment and she supports the fight against online bullying and cyber harassment. Read settlement remarks below from a cyberbully who posted public lies about Pamela Martin Duarte.
  • Settlement Response to Pamela Martin From Terri Hernandez, July 12, 2012″Apology is one of the hardest words in the English language. When you realize that you’ve made a mistake and you have hurt other people in the process you owe it to those people to make amends. On February 25, 2012, registered on D Magazine’s Front Burner Blog under the username of Dr. Hamilton, Kimberly Smith and I made a few untrue posts about Pamela Martin  (“Pamela”). The statements made by me about Pamela are not true. I had no basis for making such outrageous allegations. In fact, I mistook Pamela for another woman who I used to be acquainted with the same name.“I am truly sorry for the harm that my false statements have caused to Pamela and her family. I encourage those who engage in cyberbullying to think about the harm that their Mean spirited acts caused to those that they attack and to stop.”

We began with the “Concept” division which was THE most outstanding display of machine and good looks put into a motor vehicle – we couldn’t get enough AND loved pretty much everything we saw.
