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 adorable family in the hippie-filled Pacific Northwest, is crazy about the shooting range, shoes, 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.

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.

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.

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.

Lisa is a short, spicy Italian girl who hails from New Jersey (don’t mistake her for Snookie), a pilot’s wife of a retired Marine, Mama Bear to her 9 year old and four crazy cats, and corporate radio air personality in exile. She has a degree in Journalism/Media Arts/Creative Writing from the University of Arizona and earned her MBA…which she puts to great use as a freelance voiceover artist and ski reporter in winter! She enjoys tripping up her college liberal friends on their crazy contradictions, laughing at Hollywood hypocrisy, running, skiing, road trips to the ocean and the mountains, a good Pacific Northwest IPA with her hubby, vintage WWII nose art, Japanese culture (she and her family have lived in Japan for four years), 80s punk and alternative and hairbands. She is pro-military, pro-God and pro-life which has made her college liberal friends un-follow her to the point that they don’t even like her cat pictures on Facebook anymore. She enjoys being a girl—an empowered girl (who shaves her legs and armpits) and feels the “empowered women” movement needs a serious makeover (a-hem, Lena Dunham and Sarah Silverman, we’re looking at you….) Lisa lives in the Seattle/Tacoma area and enjoys smiling at the Prius with Obama/Biden on the bumper whilst proudly displaying her “Guns and Coffee” window sticker. You can email Lisa here.

Jenny is a native of Northern California, but now calls the southeast home. She’s a lawyer and a law prof, a former Marine, and a single parent who practices yoga to balance her yin in this yang world. Thanks to the Marines, she’s an expert shooter and can coach a novice into the bull’s eye faster than you can say “climate change denier.” She’s non-traditional in an old fashioned way, and believes in the value of the individual above the collective. You can email Jenny here, or follow her on Twitter, @GirlsGoneGuns.

Marybeth currently resides in the beautiful state of Wisconsin, but her family roots are in the St. Louis area. She grew up loving the St. Louis Cardinals and remains a diehard fan who can be found screaming at the umpires on her TV most evenings. Sarcasm is her first language, but she speaks enough English to get her through the day. She’s a mild mannered caffeinated bookworm who speaks of literary characters as though they’re her friends. Marybeth is a Christian who is rather sour towards religion, and instead focuses on relationship. She’s addicted to Politics, Christian Apologetics, C.S. Lewis, Ray Bradbury, Ravi Zacharias, and last, but certainly not least, Phil Collins. Marybeth is a Coolidge Conservative who rejects increasing government control, and will gladly rebuke either side of the aisle when they become power hungry. If she ever had a tattoo it would speak of her love for proper grammar, and she wears black and cries a little each year when new words are added to the dictionary. You can email Marybeth here, or follow her on Twitter, @mbglenn.

Toni attended the University of Cincinnati and Sacred Heart University. Her professional life was spent at Procter & Gamble in Brand Management. She is a wife and mother, currently living in Knoxville, Tennessee so that her husband can attend University of Tennessee football games (Go Vols). Her son is an officer in the United States Army. Her dog, Truman, is her personal trainer. You can email Toni here, or follow her on Twitter, @toniknxvll.

Just when I’d lately been forelorn over perceived “disapperance” of some of my favorite Bloggers…BAM.

Checking on my stats this morning, I see some new linky love from the Victory Girls. Who’da thunk it? And I shall reciproKate, forthwith.

I loves me some Victory Girls!



Elaine Axmear October 25, 2012 at 8:29 pm

I am SOOOOO glad I found your blog! This election has me so involved in getting friends to understand the trouble we will be in with another 4 years of BO! No one wants BO! You’re already one of my favorite blogs…great minds think alike;)


Michael October 27, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Hello Victory Girls, I have been in the U.S. Army for over 9 years. I only have one deployment to Iraq in 2007-2008 as an Infantry soldier. I currently am a reserve soldier and attend school in Boston. Recently it has come to my attention that Marines and Soldiers have been limited by the ROE (Rules of Engagement). I can’t seem to fathom how this is not reported in the mainstream media or how this blatant violation of U.S. Servicemembers has not been recognized or discussed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also realize the ROE is secret/confidential, which may be indicative of why this has not been discussed.

Thank You,


Kit January 19, 2013 at 10:23 pm


I’ve actually worked on cases like what you describe for over 7 years. I absolutely agree with you and have written extensively on the subject. I tried looking for an email on your comment to contact you privately on this issue but I didn’t see one. If in fact you happen to stumble back across this and would like to talk more, you can contact me at kit@victorygirlsblog.com.

Best regards,

Dear Victory Girls,

It has been said that this presidential election is among the most important in recent U.S.A. history. While this is true, it also serves to magnify the importance of all elections at every level of government – local, state, and federal. We must, must, remember this in the future. Regardless of the outcome of tomorrow’s vote, there is a tremendous amount of work needed to help restore a sense of the nation envisioned by the Founders.

Having visited your site from time-to-time, I am writing to thank you for the service rendered by you on behalf of this nation. You participate in the great national dialogue that has been ongoing for some time. Your attention to the issues, the debate surrounding them, and the willingness to be involved has assisted, along with the efforts of others, in “opening” our eyes and ears. I shudder to think where we would be had we only the national networks upon which to rely.

These are busy, tense, and stressful hours for the people of America. You have my thoughts and prayers. No reply to this message is sought or is necessary. Again, thank you.

nadres January 9, 2013 at 2:56 pm

Love your blog! Even though I’m Canadian, I’m an America-phile (can that even be a word?) and the content is still very relevant to me. Keep up the good work!


NavyOne January 13, 2013 at 11:19 am

Ah, first time visitor here (and active-duty Navy.) Thanks for sticking up for us, for saying what we can’t (due to the non-political nature of our jobs.)


Kit January 21, 2013 at 1:32 am

Thanks for your service, and rest assured that we’ll do our best on your behalf! If you ever want us to take a look at a specific issue, email me and I’ll make sure it gets done. :)


David J January 23, 2013 at 12:48 am

Victory Girls came to my notice, when Cassy recently wrote about my son Stephen, who has Downs syndrome.

I agree 100% with the observations of Captain, Armor.

Now addicted to this blog, and will drop in from time to time.
Congratulations to all the Victory Girls

Kim June 1, 2013 at 12:13 pm

I just posed a few articles you wrote about Common Core Curriculum on my FB site called Parents and Educators Against Common Core Curriculum in Colorado.

Good article I think my audience will enjoy.


Rich June 14, 2013 at 10:29 am

I think I’m in love! I am very happyt have found your site today. And you are all on the LEFT COAST! God bless you all.

Great site for sore Conservative eyes!

Why thank you Mr. Paul! And thank you for your service sir! We hope to continue to make you smile!

Great site. When I saw the B-17 at the top of the page, I knew it would be good. My father flew 30 missions in B-17s over Germany.

Now, something for you all. I have nominated the Victory Girls for recognition as one of the web’s Most Influential Bloggers. There are a few rules and you have to answer some questions. It is all explained in the link.

Thanks for the great site and…Keep ’em Flying!


GWB September 24, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Great site, ladies! I’ll be coming back often! (You can thank Blackfive for pointing your way, in my case.)

So many classy dames on one blog!


Kate September 25, 2013 at 1:47 pm

Thank you GWB – great to have you here. :)


Sara September 28, 2013 at 8:28 pm

I do enjoy the Victory Girls, as I spent nearly 6 years of my life in the Navy and have never regretted it.

I’d like a ‘follow’ button, if you have one.


Kate September 28, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Hi Sara!
Thanks for your service and your kind words about the blog. You can follow us by “subscribing” to our feed. The button or link is in the far right column toward the top, on the main page.



Randy Latham December 6, 2013 at 3:31 pm

Just read the article by Deanna Fisher on December 6, 2013 about “The Mixed Legacy of Nelson Mandela”. Great job and very well written. I wish the news media would cover some of this info. One of my facebook lady friends shared the article. I have now read several articles on Victory Girls. Great site. I am in my 60’s, a retired police lieutenant in Southern California and have been a conservative all my life. – Thank you! –


Kate December 6, 2013 at 5:48 pm

Thank you Randy! Great to have you here!


Deanna Fisher December 6, 2013 at 8:22 pm

Thank you for your kind words, Randy!


Larro December 20, 2013 at 8:44 am

Thank y’all, great job everyday.
— so many good topics I had to go back and focus on the matters of today!
I will simplify my focus;
Could WE entertain nominations for Ted Cruz and Phil Robertson?

Thanks for considering …


Kate December 30, 2013 at 11:13 am

Thank you Larro! We’re big fans of both Ted Cruz and Phil Robertson here. :)


David Jayson December 30, 2013 at 10:36 am

Good morning Ladies,
Thanks for the awesome blog ! Like Ruthie, I too was raised by Democrats and the first time, I voted for Jimmy Carter because as you know, most first timers vote like their parents. It was a lesson learned. The second time I almost gave John Anderson my vote but came to my senses and Ronald Reagan won me over. I wound up joining the military soon after and have enjoyed my membership in our nations military to this day. :-)
I was carried by a woman for nine months, raised by a woman (and a man who listened to his wife) and am married to a woman. They have been strong influences in my life so it’s no surprise that I was attracted to this blog that is run by women. This is a great site. Thanks for keeping me informed. Girl Power !!!!


Randy Breitbart February 12, 2014 at 12:25 pm

Ladies – what an impressive site. Your graphics and design are stunning, and your postings pack quite a wallop. Don’t know why it took a link from The Blogfather for me to find you, but I’ll be back often.

Rock on…


HavocDog March 1, 2014 at 2:30 pm

I’m not a girl, but I believe I qualify as a genuine article patriot, very glad to have found this blog and have added it to my favs. Keep up the great work VG!!!


Madness March 15, 2014 at 5:53 am

I’ve only had the time to read bloggers profiles tonight… As a collective group go bloggers, you VICTORYGIRLS have brought out emotion in me, in a good way ()maybe a tear a tear or two whilst smiling did occur lol)
I look forward to reading your blogs….

Love faith hope happiness

Madness xxxxxxxx


Chris in N.Va. May 21, 2014 at 1:05 pm

Kudos to you all!

What a refreshing and stimulating blogsite. As a USAF vet (married to a USN vet) it’s been frustrating to observe the ever-increasing castration of the military and deconstruction of our barely-democratic-republic country, from Carter (kill the rabbit!), through the “twofer” debacle of Bonnie and Clod (Willy & Hilly), and now enduring the clothes-less Imperial Rule of Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac (as I’ve referred to Barry-O ever since his ascension to the throne).

Keep up the good fight! I salute your efforts!

Respectful regards,


Bill May 24, 2014 at 11:27 am

When I meet people who don’t believe in creationism, I ask them when will science invent something for men as wonderful as women? Conservative women, that is.

Keep up the V for Victory, girls.


Grenville Green July 9, 2014 at 5:32 pm

Message for Cassy,
Against the odds. Stephen is moving forward. BBC OUCH contacted us a few weeks ago, because they wanted to know what reaction Stephen is having within our community.

If you Google Stephen Green Nuthall you can read about the effect he is having locally and nationally. Below is the short film BBC OUCH have recently released about Stephen.

Sadly the new chairman of Nuthall Parish Council, (retired deputy head of an inner school with a life time in education), is hostile and has yet to acknowledge the good work Stephen is doing in our community.

Dealing with this at the moment

Best Wishes Grenville

Dear Victory Girls:

Your blog on the Ferguson, Mo situation is very fine, logical and respectful to our fellow Americans of color! So many American Women are in “Lockstep” with the political correct Liberal Lifestyle that has made me, a retired soldier, keep my own conservative opinions on the “low burner” even around my own wife of 41 years! I salute you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the American ideals you have written of!

Next to your names, would you all mind posting the initials you use when you respond to posts on FB?


Kate August 28, 2014 at 10:02 pm

Tim do you mean on each comment or the actual posts we put on FB? Or do you mean right here, on our bios?


Tabitha January 29, 2015 at 7:37 am

I linked into one of your articles from a newsfeed and was completed distracted by the heading on your blog page, to the effect that I have not even read the article yet. Conservative for me is a way of life, not a political affiliation. Therefore I was shocked by the soft porn glaring at me (a half naked woman, literally) right next to the subtitle “conservative”! What an oxymoron! My Conservative way of life also places an emphasis on MODESTY and non-objectification of women through false sexual imagery. I would expect this from a liberal women’s blog. Not a so-called conservative one!


Kate January 29, 2015 at 5:13 pm

Thanks Tabitha for visiting the blog. The pin-ups we use on the blog were popular with our GI’s and airmen during WW2. In fact, the pin-up you call “soft porn”, which I assume is the one in our header, is from a B-24 Bomber and hardly soft porn. You can see a photo of it at the link at the end of this comment. Our blog theme is WW2, an era we love, and draw great inspiration from. Your judgmental assessment about who we are as conservative women is not only silly, but completely false. I encourage you to be concerned about your own sexual imagery portrayed as you leave these kinds of poison comments, and leave us to ours. Thank you.



Jack May 3, 2015 at 6:11 am

Found your site by accident? I think not. Great writing and am sharing your website with all my conservative friends. Unfortunately my liberal friends cannot discuss politics in a rational manner since they choose to remain uninformed. They get extremely agitated when faced with facts and truth so I no longer try and provoke them, they just might have to rely on Obamacare to recover from their panic attacks.


Kate May 4, 2015 at 6:29 pm

Jack so glad to have you here. Thanks for sharing the blog with your friends. :)

Kal October 27, 2015 at 11:03 am

Love your blog but had to ask why you chose the name Victory girls when in WWII that term was generally a teenaged girl or young woman who exhibited her patriotism by offering companionship, and often sex, to servicemen during World War II.

Just curious that all.


Kate October 29, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Hi Kal
Actually the term Victory Girls had several meanings during WW2, including the one you mention. We chose the name from these photos which I had collected a few years ago before starting the blog:



By the way, we’ve had these 2 pictures sent to us from readers over and over again and used them on our FB page repeatedly. We like this meaning. :)
