My name is Chepita Morales, and I am a 1st generation American, that was born in Managua, Nicaragua in 1958 and later Naturalized a US citizen. I grew up in a very poor family of 6 girls, 3 older, and 2 younger, my mother, and a physically and emotionally abusive alcoholic father who kept our family broke and without food because of his addiction. I remember going to sleep many nights extremely hungry. It also didn’t help that my country was under the control of the Somoza family, a puppet regime put in place by the American Govt. whose military wreaked havoc on the people.
In December of 1971, after just turning 13, was when my mother seized an opportunity for me to escape this life. An American Diplomat who had made friends with my older sisters, convinced her to let me return with him, as legal guardian, to Washington DC to live with his family and attend school. So, she let me go, not knowing what would befall me there.
Pedophilia began almost immediately as he would sexually fondle me while I was asleep. I’d wake up thinking that I was dreaming, but 4 months later, reality set in when he actually raped me. I was all alone, a scared young girl, not even knowing what sex was, without my mother, or anyone to hear my crying and comfort me. Things changed from poverty to perversion. I became very upset with the God I knew and wondered, ‘was this going to be my new life now?’
In July of 1973, the US Govt. sent us on assignment to Chile. On Sept 11, a US backed military coup began with Augusto Pinochet seizing control of the country from Salvador Allende. Curfews were instituted, food shortages, toilet paper, and bread lines began, and at 14, I personally witnessed the execution of many college students who lived across the street, suspected of having ties to Allende’s Marxist movement.
From Chile, we were sent to Peru. The Marxist terrorists were already slowly infiltrating the country. Not knowing the type of assignment we were on, I was surprised to see the Marxist terrorists show up at our front door with guns drawn. We hid until they left, and had to escape the next day, being evacuated back to Washington DC.
We remained in DC until he retired and then moved to Miami. It was there that after many years pretending to be his adopted daughter that he coerced me into marriage once I had turned 18.
While living in Miami, my life took another twist when I fell in love with a young Air Force guy. I was still married at the time, but 11 months later I divorced the old man, married my new husband and had a baby girl. In 1998 I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and became His Ambassador of the Gospel. Having now the Mind of Christ, He gave me the wisdom and understanding to realize that all I had been through was according to His plan and purpose, albeit painful.
Armed with the knowledge of these life experiences, I see what our political leaders are doing to America, and it angers me. As a legal Latina, I took the oath to defend our Constitution, and I will participate in the political system to effect changes. In 2020, I wrote a fingerprint ID bill using the website WriteYourLaws.com for the purpose of stopping voter fraud and submitted it to our State Representative to forward to Congress. I am also using my business as a platform to share the gospel, my story, and that there is only one America, blessed by God, and she is still worth fighting for!

The road to American Freedom, bittersweet indeed
Thank you so much Josie for sharing your journey! I am proud to call you my friend, not only in Christ, but as a personal friend. What a journey who have been on. God always had a plan for you. God bless you, Josie.
What a truly amazing and inspirational story. I envision it becoming a cinematic story that may one day be shared broadly, god-willing. I’ll continue to pray that God uses your story to influence many to lean on God’s love and trust in Him completely.
Trishanne is my sister and she shared your amazing journey that you have been on. What a testimony to our Lord and Savior! He gives us all the strength to get through whatever we must endure. While I am so sorry for all you have been through, you are a light for others that will need it to get through their journey! That’s how His Light works! Thank you for all you do for this country and His Kingdom! We need many more patriots and Jesus followers like you! Way too many here in America do not understand what is happening to our country?. I have been praying for our nation to repent so that we can receive His grace and mercy, not His wrath-Amen and Amen!
