Kim Hirsch 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!
Toni Williams loves this country so much, she cries during the National Anthem. Born Conservative and slightly Misanthropic, she adores her husband, Army Captain son, dog and Russian ballet. In her spare time, she loves to eat food and hike The Smokies.
Lisa Carr is a feisty fireball from the East Coast. She speaks French, Italian (only the swears), enough Japanese to be dangerous and fluent sarcasm. She enjoys using that sarcasm whilst making fun of the plethora of liberal hipsters who reside in the Pacific Northwest. She is a lover of God, America, family, all things 80s-especially Reagan and punk rock/new wave. Lisa is the proud wife of a retired Marine (now airline pilot) and spends her time as a starving freelance voiceover artist, being mom to one son she loves too much to allow become a snowflake, running a senior citizens’ home for cats and writing for Victory Girls.

Her interest in politics and conservatism started when she was ten years old with her dad challenging her to read the daily newspaper and discussing articles over the dinner table. Happy wife, mother and grandmother, her day job for the last 19 years has been within the judiciary.

Nina Bookout, a resident of Northern Colorado, is a 5th Generation rancher’s daughter from Wyoming whose roots in this country pre-date the American Revolution.

In addition to running the business and blogging, Nina relaxes by cooking with wine – sometimes even adding it to the food, reading, taking long walks, and hanging out with her husband.
Shelby Gallagher is currently a resident of the Pacific NW but not for much longer after the 2020 election. She has been a lifelong conservative and active in local politics, no matter where she lives. While witnessing the riots in Portland after the 2016 Presidential election, she was inspired to write the trilogy “A Great State” chronicling the collapse of the state of Oregon under the thumb of decades of progressive mismanagement. Sadly, what she wrote as fiction in 2016 has become current headlines. These days, she is the cohost of the radio show/podcast, Prepping 2.0, with her husband and fellow author, Glen Tate.
Cameron McNabb is the daughter of a 30-year Airforce Pilot and a June Cleaver wanna-be. Raised in Austin, TX, she naively moved to Los Angeles in her mid-twenties to make all her big mistakes. While she had already emblazoned a GOP elephant tattoo on her body a few years earlier, it was only after a decade of watching what real progressive politics looks like that she understood she needed to learn more about actual conservative values and speak up. She first found the power of her voice when she was quoted in Inc. Magazine at the age of sixteen, and then later as a pundit on MSNBC. It was a distinct joy to tell Ariana Huffington “You know, it’s women like you who give women in politics a bad name.” during her bid for governorship in California. Cameron has a small but growing collection of political kitsch that invites all sorts of heated conversation. She is still very much in love with her second husband after eight years together… they eloped in Las Vegas after three months of speed dating! Together, they survived launching her husband’s son: the proto-typical Millennial, who was a basement dwelling gamer into a real, honest-to-God, tax paying citizen with his own damn home! Now the couple are back in Texas as proud owners of two obnoxious corgis; Ronnie-cat (surviving “spouse” to Nancy); and newly acquired Orange-Man-Bad, the main coon kitty with his PIC, Melania. Her day-job in real estate allows her a daily chance to remind Californians to “remember why you left. No new taxes!”
Amanda Green might not be a Native Texan but she got there just as quickly as her parents could move from Oklahoma. If asked what she wants to be when she grows up, she shrugs and smiles and asks why she has to grow up. A vocal advocate for Freedom of Speech and the Second Amendment, her greatest achievement is her son, a proud member of the Armed Forces.
