The Strike Team That Helped Save America
The day was February 7th, 2016. It was two days before the New Hampshire presidential primary. On this day, a band of brothers were requested to go forward and duplicate their efforts across the country. The Trump staff in New Hampshire had worked relentlessly for several months leading up to the February 9th win for Donald J. Trump, and it was a slam dunk over the other candidates. There was something extraordinary about these men, ages ranging from 19 to 59 years of age. Their drive, their focus on the job at hand and their dedication was above and beyond the ordinary campaign worker. Something very special was happening in New Hampshire. What the left-wing liberals and media didn’t recognize was that something much bigger was happening that they couldn’t see or measure in the polls.
God almighty was intervening in this election. He had watched the decimation of Christian values decline for decades and was stepping in to save America from becoming a Socialist nightmare for our country. Some staffers were aware of this and some weren’t. Either way, our Lord almighty was arranging His soldiers, in order to elect the only ovne who had the heart and courage to withstand the storm. Not to mention the onslaught of what would become known as, the Deep State.
On February 10th this handful of courageous men left home for South Carolina. They continued their 85-90-hour work weeks, pulling in volunteers as an army to pour into campaign offices across each state. An extremely organized effort on the ground and phone bankers in campaign offices is the only way to win an election. And this band of brothers knew exactly how to get it done. This was no longer a job for them, this was a mission to save America. The media scoffed at Trump winning the presidency and continued their propaganda to the American people that he had no chance of winning.
As any prepared strike team would do, this team would go on the offensive, do what was necessary and move onto the next objective. The same plan was executed in each state they were sent. February 20th, the day of the South Carolina primary vote. Trump wins all 50 delegates and the strike team is on a plane to Texas before the vote is in. Splitting up, they dropped into San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and Houston. Although bailing out of the Dallas office and relocating was not on the agenda. A “Beer and Wine” sign over the office pre-selected was a dire mistake by state staff for sure. President Trump does not drink alcohol, and this would be an embarrassment. But that’s why these guys were chosen. Winning Texas would have been an upset for sure, but coming in second place and sticking it in Ted Cruz’s eye was the objective. Mission accomplished and off to do the same in Ohio.
Away from home for as much as six weeks at a time, home for a day and gone, their resolve was not to be matched by the Clinton campaign. Strategically, the Trump Strike Team would be sent to some of the most important states in the election. South Carolina, Texas, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin. Onto Nebraska and finally California at the end of the primaries in June 2016. It was all about winning enough delegates to be pronounced “President-elect” for the Republican party. The stories of a frightening drive at night back to a hotel from a campaign office in Indiana, close to a tornado, are all told in my book. A Rush to Judgement, A Journey with Trump, God and Love.
You see, God put me in the place He wanted me. I was asked to run the ground campaign for President Trump in December 2015. I was blessed to be chosen as one of the strike team members. The sacrifice given by the men and women who I worked with throughout the campaign was nothing but incredible. I’ll be forever grateful to the volunteers across the country, for whom without, we couldn’t have won. We witnessed the devastation across America created by Obama and all the politicians before him, Republican and Democrat.
Let us not rest America. Do not think for a moment that the job is complete. God blessed America on November 8th, 2016. However, the fight against evil continues at this very moment. Don’t think that the liberal left and socialists in this country are resting on their laurels. They are plotting to take back this country and all Christian values with it. Do not assume someone else will do it. You too can make difference, just as I did.
