The Veterans for Trump endorsement of Rep. Marjorie Greene was issued today by the national veterans organization. Veterans for Trump was founded in 2015 as part of the original Trump Campaign Collation and later operated a non profit known as Veterans for America First. Currently the group is part of the 2024 Trump campaign collation under the direction of Admiral Charles Kubic their national spokesman and President Stan Fitzgerald , a retired police detective. The organization speaks for millions of conservative veterans and is considered an influential primary endorsement.

The organization also has a Georgia state chapter led by attorney Jared Craig who will be carrying the endorsement of rep Greene at the state level as well. https://georgiavfaf.org

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke last evening at her town hall event, for constituents only, in Cobb County Georgia. Veterans for Trump's Donna and Stan Fitzgerald were among the invited guests. Upon arriving some in the large crowd awaiting entry were expressing their dismay with the debt ceiling vote. Rep Greene took the town hall stage and explained in detail all the factors why she voted the way she did and when the event ended her speech and Q&A session was met with a standing ovation, no further dismay from her voters. The complete speech can be viewed at https://veteransfortrump.us/news

"Marjorie was aware that 12 Republicans were signing onto a petition by the Democrats if this was not passed which would have given everything the Democrats and Establishment wanted. Marjorie voted the right way resulting in a 1% decrease and an attachment for dividing future omnibus bills to have sections voted on. This was a win for American conservatives," said Pamela Reardon, a Cobb County Georgia 2020 Presidential Delegate who attended the town hall.

"Congresswoman Greene has always been loyal to our country, her constituents, our America First agenda and to President Trump. Rep. Greene stands with our veterans and first responders; in fact, she gave personal assistance from her office to a vet at the town hall meeting last night. At Veterans for Trump we appreciate loyalty and those who fight for our country like Marjorie does so we are announcing today our organizational endorsement for the 2024 congressional election cycle," said Stan Fitzgerald president Veterans for Trump.

The Veterans team will be set up at the Georgia state GOP convention June 9th and 10th in Columbus Georgia with FBI Whistleblower Steve Friend doing meet and greets at their tables. The Group also sponsored the John Fredericks bus tour which will be at the convention promoting some of their nationally endorsed candidates including Caroline Jeffords, Salleigh Grubbs, Marci McCArthy and Vikki Consiglio.

Africans in U.S. Politics: A Voice of America Townhall

Africans in the Diaspora are playing a bigger role in U.S. politics with a diverse electorate raising issues in this campaign about both Africa and their new lives in the United States.

At a Voice of America Townhall “African Voices and Votes: The Diaspora and the U.S. Elections” African-born immigrants stressed the importance of organizing and participating in the political process to get elected officials to pay attention to issues important to them.

“We need to get involved and participate,” said Nigerian-born Sylvester Okere, chairman of the United People for African Congress group. “We need to elect representatives that speak for us and better our lives. We are here to be relevant.”

VOA Director Amanda Bennett joined the discussion with African-born U.S. residents, who the Census Bureau says number nearly 2 million. “The African Diaspora is an integral piece of the American mosaic and serves as an example of the power of the democratic process here in the U.S.,” Bennet said. “It is very important we understand the issues concerning African citizens in the U.S. as the Voice of America is the bridge that connects the African diaspora with their ancestral countries.”

Menna Demessie was born in the United States to Ethiopian parents and is now the Vice President of Policy and Research for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. “Members across party lines work together on issues of interest to Africans,” Demessie said of the six Congressional Caucuses focusing on Africa.

Ghananian-born activist Nii Akuetteh of the African Immigrant Caucus told the panel that voting alone is not enough. Drawn from many countries with varied political views, Akuetteh said Diaspora leaders “need to organize as Africans in order to bring all Africans together.” “In Africa big people scare little people,” Akuetteh said, “but in the U.S. big people are scared of little people.”
