The Victory Girls
Kate is the founder, owner, and Editor-in-Chief of Victory Girls Blog. She’s been involved in several successful blog ventures over the last decade as Writer, Political Editor, and Managing Editor. She is definitely a happy warrior for conservatism! Kate lives with her family in the hippie-filled Pacific Northwest, is a birder, crazy about the shooting range, shoes, and wine, and loves big hair 80’s music. She’s also a Whovian, TWD junkie, and C-SPAN wonk. Go figure! You can email Kate here or follow her on Twitter, @KateFriarStokes.
Cassy, the co-founder and Managing Editor of Victory Girls Blog, is a conservative blogger who has written for many successful blogs, such as Wizbang, Hot Air, NewsReal Blog, Pajamas Media, and more. Her work can currently be found at multiple blogs, such as Live Action, Rare, and Right Wing News. She is married to former Marine who served on four combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. They have three children: Benjamin, Wyatt, and Ivy. Wyatt was diagnosed with Down syndrome when Cassy was 16 weeks pregnant, and while her husband was deployed. She gave birth to Wyatt while he was in Afghanistan, and their family was reunited three weeks later. Cassy is also the 2013 Camp Lejeune Military Spouse of the Year. She does not enjoy anything in her spare time, because a husband, three kids, and working from home does not leave one with any spare time. You can email Cassy here or follow her on Twitter, @casachess.
Deanna is the Podcast Manager for Victory Girls, and is an at-home wife and mother to a supportive husband and four active children. In her BC (before children) life, she had two BA degrees in journalism and Japanese linguistics, and was a freelance journalist who had a day job in health insurance. In her AC (after children) life, she became a special needs mother and advocate after her oldest son was diagnosed with autism. Somehow, she grew up a conservative, even after living in and around the Seattle area her entire life. She remains devoted to the Seattle Mariners, no matter how many times they disappoint her. She enjoys baffling the local liberals who love to make assumptions about her because of her mixed race background, teaching Sunday school, baking, making cards, cross-stitch, and is proud to be an Army sister with a Blue Star on her minivan. You can email Deanna here.
Jodi is the Vines Manager for Victory Girls, a full-time mom, a full-time homeschooler, a part-time book designer and an occasional editor, who would like to see every last unconstitutional agency and program in the federal government dismantled forever. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in English and Book Publishing from Portland State University, and resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and child, and three neurotic felines. She enjoys spending time with family, bashing anything and everything liberal, indulging her addiction to classic cars, and playing really bad basketball. Not necessarily in that order. When not standing in defense of our Constitution, she’s jumping out of the paths of cars bearing Coexist stickers, and working on her lay-up. You can email Jodi here or follow her on Twitter, @JodiGiddings.
Kit is a former Air Force mechanic who has an even lower tolerance for liberalism than she does for being called Republican–the phrase used to describe her should be “Constitutional Conservative.” She is proud to cling not-so-bitterly to her guns and faith, and thinks there should be a lot more of both in this country. She co-founded the military blog Euphoric Reality, co-hosted the radio shows The Front Line and Fire For Effect, and currently works as an analyst while pursuing a master’s degree in Intelligence. Kit writes at VG on topics like national security and foreign policy, guns, Islam, and why Volvos and Subarus are so often driven by crabby, middle-aged female Obama voters. You can email Kit here or follow her on Twitter, @KitLange.
ROS is an obsessively grammatically correct and unapologetically politically incorrect Mom, friend, mad scientist, Papist, and conservative hippie. You can email ROS here.
Jennifer – Growing up as an Army brat traveling the world has given Jennifer a different perspective on many issues discussed on this blog. Most notably, the freedoms we posses as Americans, and especially as American women. Having traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, she has had an opportunity to get up close and personal with issues like Islam’s treatment of women and immigrants influences on their adopted cultures-both positive and negative. She is also a devoted wine enthusiast, a huge Betty Page fan, and a lover of critters soft and fuzzy. You can email Jennifer here or follow her on Twitter, @GOPGrrl.
Catherine is a 5th generation Arizonan living near Prescott. She loves to hunt, cook, hike, and fish and will delightedly argue with anyone who thinks guns or cookies are “a problem”. Catherine has won numerous national awards for her competitive cooking skills and recipe writing. Before landing on the ranch, she was an adventure travel expedition leader working in Mexico and Central America. Her interests, obviously, are the politics and lifestyle of a decidedly conservative nature and she thoroughly enjoys the evisceration of chuckleheaded liberals. You can email Catherine here or follow her on Twitter, @MsTriscuit.
Dejah is married in the old fashioned traditional way to her man friend with extensive combat experience (because “boy” doesn’t fit in this case) and is helping to raise their only son, two dogs and a cat behind enemy lines in the Pacific Northwest. Her appearance at Victory Girls is not her first foray into blogging and she is an unapologetically politically incorrect spreader of eternal truths who wants liberals to become an insignificant minority with as little input in political affairs as humanly possible. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in International Affairs and Public Administration from Boise State University and when she isn’t blogging she enjoys being a girl (which liberals seem to hate), wanting her man to enjoy being a man (which liberals hate even more), spending time with both of them, smashing the reality of anyone liberal standing in line at Starbucks, cooking things that don’t have tofu or arugula in them, watching her man-friend turn their son into a great man, indulging her addiction to spending time on the water in her man-friend’s boat, and watching the Boise State Broncos play football. When not standing in defense of the greater good that is America, she’s cutting off cars bearing “War is not the Answer” stickers with her BMW in the I-5 corridor and finding purses to match her pistols. You can email Dejah here
Donna bleeds blue, but not Democrat blue — UK blue. She was born and raised in the Bluegrass Commonwealth of Kentucky, the fourth of eleven children. She now lives in Kentucky’s mother-Commonwealth–Virginia–just outside our Nation’s capital, in the liberal bastion known as NOVA (Northern Virginia). She drives daily through the District of Columbia to her workplace in the People’s Republic of Maryland, carefully avoiding the Prius-driving liberals and the bottomless potholes. Donna married for the first time later in life (over the age of 40) and gained two beautiful stepdaughters in addition to her wonderful husband, who works for the federal government (she asks friends and family not to hold that against her). Donna is a former elementary school teacher and has two law degrees. She presently works for a non-profit (mostly full of liberals), but it is her goal to get her internet business off the ground soon so she can control her own destiny. Religious liberty issues are some of her favorite topics for blogging, but anything is fair game. You can email Donna here, or follow her on Twitter, @CatholicVoter1.
Nina is a 5th generation Wyoming rancher’s daughter who calls Colorado home. She’s a wife, a mother, a business owner and entrepreneur working with public safety agencies on a variety of projects, and most of all she is a Proud American! For fun she takes to the ski slopes at Copper Mountain, goes to her parents ranch or the cabins in WY, is always trying new food recipes on family and friends, loves a good glass of wine, reads voraciously, is a Denver Broncos fan and a St. Louis Cardinals fan (much to the consternation of her Rockies fan husband), and has a very strong dislike for progressive, liberal, feminist, politically correct crap. She believes the Constitution is the solid foundation of this Republic, and knows that with the freedoms provided through that amazing document comes a duty to nurture those very freedoms rather than let them dissolve away by staying silent. You can email Nina here, or follow her on Twitter, @NDBook96.
Kim is a pint-sized patriot who packs some big contradictions. She is a Baby Boomer who never became a hippie, an active Republican who first registered as a Democrat (okay, it was to help a sorority sister’s father in his run for sheriff), and a devout Lutheran who practices yoga. Growing up in small-town Indiana, now living in the Kansas City metro, Kim is a conservative Midwestern gal whose heart is also in the Seattle area, where her eldest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson live. Kim is a working speech pathologist who left school system employment behind to subcontract to an agency, and has never looked back. She describes her conservatism as falling in the mold of Russell Kirk’s Ten Conservative Principles. Don’t know what they are? Google them! You can email Kim here or follow her on Twitter, @luckycat76.
Gail is a contradictory conservative with libertarian (small L) tendencies. She is a cheerful Calvinist and a married resident of Michigan (West Michigan to be exact) and has two dogs and likes to travel with her husband. She works for a nonprofit and enjoys intelligent conversation with thinking liberals as well as libertarian leaning conservatives. Politically correct humorless leftists annoy her as do democrat lites aka John McCain RINOS. This is her first attempt at public blogging. You can email Gail here.
J.Marie is a non-denominational Christian conservative, Constitution loving zealot who thanks Jesus everyday that she resides in the very red state of beautiful South Carolina. She is married to a manly-man veteran who is her best friend and very happy he can fix or build anything since her family lives on a horse farm in a house built in the late 1800’s. She is a full-time, self-employed, homeschooling mama to the sweetest, most creative two gals south of the Mason-Dixon line, but when not focused on family, enjoys breeding and raising American Saddlebred horses, teaching mounted archery, wild-crafting, cooking, lots of vino, and of course writing for VG. A southern rebel to the core, she loves confounding her liberal frenemies with her lovely, mixed family, her intense advocacy for homeopathic medicine, and her passionate dislike for the unnatural cultivation of the modern food supply. Her current favorite motto: ” Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.” You can email J.Marie here.
Amy is a proud Midwestern, diehard Chicago Bears fan that fell in love with and married her US Marine and Packers fan. Happily, she and her husband, Josh, are raising two little Packers fan and a little Bears fan in Northern Indiana where her husband found a job doing what he loves after he separated from the Marine Corps in 2013. She has a passion for football, American history, the Constitution, conservatism, and sewing. She’s an avid quilter who hits the gym frequently. Amy is outspoken, politically incorrect, and unapologetically pro-life. She’s a Christian, a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, and by the grace of the God she loves so much – an American country girl. You can email Amy here or follow her on Twitter, @amtay26.
