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 both the Political Editor and Managing Editor of Right Pundits as well as Blatherings Blog. When she’s not at her day job righting the world’s ills, she’s blasting 80′s music and writing snarky goodness here at VG. Kate lives in the hippie-filled Pacific Northwest, and tries to escape from the rampant stupidity by birdwatching, antiquing, gardening and other nice and quiet pastimes that don’t require her to suffer fools. Kate writes on pro-life, terrorism, and many other topics. You can email Kate here or follow her on Twitter, @KateFriarStokes.
Kit is the Managing Editor of Victory Girls. She’s 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.
Cassy, the co-founder of Victory Girls Blog, is a conservative blogger who has written for many successful blogs, such as Wizbang, Right Wing News, Hot Air, NewsReal Blog, and more. Her work can currently be found at Pajamas Media, Live Action, You Served, and MomTalk. She is married to an active-duty United States Marine who recently returned home from his fourth deployment. They have two children under the age of two; Benjamin and Wyatt. 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. You can email Cassy here.
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
Jodi is a full-time mom, a full-time homeschooler, a part-time book designer and 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.
Katie is a 20 year old student at the University of San Diego pursuing a History and Political Science double major. She is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area where she loves attending Giants games and annoying liberals. She’s an active part of various organizations including College Republicans, as well as the National Honors Society and Kappa Alpha Theta. You can email Katie here.
Deanna 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
Melanie is a former teacher and currently works as an editor and writer. Melanie honed her conservative values by seeing first-hand the way a liberal family member’s thinking was distorted by the pretty-sounding words of the Democrat party platform. She reads and researches both conservative and liberal sources to better understand both sides of issues. Melanie has been blogging since 2005 and is excited to be on the Victory Girls team. You can email Melanie 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.
Kelley is a married mother of 3 and grandmother of 1, who’s a small business owner and catechism teacher. Living in the albeit beautiful but very blue state of California, she proudly served her county district as an elected representative for the Republican Central Committee for 3 terms during the Bush years, and has recently served as Vice president of the Stockton Republican Women’s Club Federated. She enjoys gardening, antiquing and refinishing step by timid step. Victory Girls is her first foray into the blogosphere. You can email Kelley here.
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.
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.
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.
