Hurricane Ian vs Team Florida and DeSantis – Do not “blow” over Florida

By Vicky Richter

In late September, Hurricane Ian slammed into mainland Florida. This hurricane was nearly a Category 5 and in just hours, changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Florida residents. Governor Ron DeSantis responded quickly and decisively to prevent the greatest possible damage to Florida residents.

Hurricane Ian – a century disaster makes its way through Florida

Because of the unusually high sea surface temperatures in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico and with the other atmospheric conditions that were created, a huge reservoir of energy became available to developing tropical cyclones. Hurricane IAN now appears to have exploited this potential to a great extent, ultimately ranking among the strongest and most devastating hurricanes ever to hit Florida and the United States.

On Tuesday morning (September 27) Central European Time, IAN crossed the west of Cuba after rapidly intensifying already as a Category 3 hurricane with wind speeds around 200 km/h and heavy rain. Massive damage to the infrastructure was already evident there, and larger parts of the country were without power for two days.

IAN then gradually strengthened over the Gulf of Mexico, reaching its peak of development at midday on Wednesday (September 28). It matured into an extremely dangerous category 4 hurricane, producing wind speeds of 250 km/h at a core pressure of 937 hPa. By this time, IAN was already just off the southwest coast of Florida. The window of opportunity for weakening before landfall, which meteorologists had identified in advance due to increasing wind shear over the southeastern United States, thus shrank to a minimum. Consequently, at about 21 CEST on Wednesday evening, IAN struck the coast near Fort Myers with almost full force as a still-destructive second-highest category hurricane with a core pressure of 940 hPa and mean wind speeds of up to 240 km/h. In terms of wind speeds, it was the fourth strongest hurricane ever to hit Florida and the ninth strongest in the weather history of the United States of America.

In addition to its strength, the storm’s extremely slow shifting proved to be particularly problematic. Near the “eyewall” (the wall of clouds arranged in a circle around the cloudy and windless “eye” of the storm), hurricane conditions prevailed for hours on the southwest coast of Florida. On the southern flank of the storm, the wind blew from the west, so that in addition, enormous amounts of water were pushed from the sea toward the coast and bays. This led to historically high storm surges there of up to 5 meters in height. Inland, the storm slowly weakened, but the heavy rainfall did not. With rainfall amounts in some cases exceeding 300 liters per square meter within 12 to 24 hours, equivalent to almost two-thirds the annual precipitation in Berlin, extensive areas of flooding also formed inland, particularly in a strip from Fort Myers and Tampa through Orlando in a northeasterly direction to the Atlantic coast. According to data from the U.S. Weather Service, in some regions this was an event that statistically occurs only once every 1,000 years.

Aerial Recovery Group – Pine Island Rescue Mission

Pine Island, along with Fort Myers and surrounding counties, was hit the hardest. For days after the hurricane, reports of missing people were still being filed with authorities, and first responders could only reach the island via boat or helicopter. Trailer home communities were completely destroyed. The helplessness of residents was pervasive. What official first responders were able to handle due to time constraints was taken over by relief organizations from across America. For example, the Aerial Recovery Group, which first conducted search and recovery missions, moved on to health checks, basic care assistance, and roof tarping.

I had the chance to accompany the Hurricane Relief Team, “Aerial Recovery Group,” on Pine Island for ten days. In an interview with team leader John Witherspoon and volunteer Chad Golden, I learned about the mission of this veteran-led organization and what John and Chad did with the Aerial Recovery Group team after Hurricane Ian in the Fort Myers area.

GEORGE:

How long have you been working with Aerial Recovery?

John Witherspoon:

I was with Ariel from the beginning. We started talking about it and preparing it in 2019. At the beginning of 2020, we started putting the antenna together.

GEORGE:

Was it envisioned from the beginning as a veteran-led organization to help clean up disasters, or was it a growing idea along the lines of, okay, now we have a bunch of veterans, so why not incorporate some military training?

John Witherspoon:

Yeah, in the beginning it was veterans who came up with it. I guess it started as kind of a veteran’s organization, just because of who we are. And it was really about putting not just a veteran, but a Special Forces spin on disaster relief. Because of the way we work with other organizations, cultures, and governments, typically in our military role, it was about how do you, I guess, organize the local population in a disaster. Organizing the local population in a disaster, supporting the operations centers and the governments in a disaster, those kinds of things. But how to add a special touch to it, which is Special Forces. And after we started doing that, we decided that we need to train volunteers so that when they arrive, they know how to proceed, so that they have skills that are helpful when they arrive and volunteer.

GEORGE:

Why did you volunteer for this mission and come to Aerial Recovery?

Chad Golden:

I had already worked with the Aerial Recovery Group in 2020 after Honduras was hit by two hurricanes within two weeks. I met Jeremy through a mutual friend in the Army. Helping in Honduras was an experience I will never forget. Seeing these people survive while coming together as a community to help each other was something so amazing to see in the midst of the hurricane’s destruction. I have always helped anyone in need, and when I saw the devastation Hurricane Ian caused, I had time on my hands and I knew Aerial Recovery would be there to help, so I messaged Jeremy and asked if I could help.

GEORGE:

When did Aerial decide to go to Florida with Ian to help? Was it when they first heard it would hit Cuba?

John Witherspoon:

So, yes, we decided before he hit Cuba. We got the reports that he was going to hit Florida, and of course the model kept changing and we didn’t know exactly where he was going to hit, but before it hit Cuba, we decided that we would respond. So it was probably the 27th or 28th, I am not 100% sure. So that started the whole process of planning and preparing the response.

GEORGE:

Can you tell me a little bit about how you plan these events? You can’t really plan it, because it’s an unpredictable situation. But what forces do you activate before you go out and get your boots on the ground?

John Witherspoon:

Once we decide to go there and we have a general idea of where the hurricane is going to go, we create our concept of operations and how we’re going to respond to it. Obviously, if we don’t know exactly where it’s going to make landfall, we just have to get here and then see where the storm is going to move to respond to it. So in our concept of operations, we start with the question, who is coming? It’s kind of a five W. So who’s going? What are we going to do? What’s the situation we’re going into? We do a situation analysis, like: Here are the threats from the storm, here are the threats from the post-storm activities, and so on. Here are the emergency response numbers, the people in the area where we expect the storm to hit, and just different forecasts. For example, if the storm surge is this high, this many people will be affected, our demographics.

GEORGE:

Have you ever had problems with the official federal search and rescue team?

Chad Golden:

I have not had any bad experiences with first responders. I think in the early stages of disaster relief/recovery, any constructive/proactive help is welcome. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that Aerial Recovery is run by former Army soldiers who I think know what it takes and how to work well with others in a high stress, high risk environment.

John Witherspoon:

I have to say that it depends more on the particular region, if that makes sense. And sometimes the smaller the organization or the more local the organization, the more they want your help. For example, in Mayfield, Kentucky, we were very welcomed because I intentionally went there and coordinated everything with them and gave them feedback on everything we were doing, and we worked great together. But this is a town of 15,000, 20,000 people, you know what I mean? So it’s a smaller, more local community. So it was easy to do that, because after all, I knew everybody there by their first name and so forth. Now when you come to Lee County, Florida, it’s a much bigger machine and a much bigger operation. There are a lot more people involved at the center. I did coordinate and talk to them a lot, but with a larger organization, sometimes you get a little bit more of that, “No, we’re good, we have it.” But in general, my experience has always been that if you coordinate with them early and often, they eventually start to trust you to do what you promise.

And if we had known for sure that this thing was going to hit Lee County, it would have been beneficial to call them and coordinate with them in advance to let them know that we were coming and that we were able to do this. That is what we intend to do.

GEORGE:
Do you think your help was welcomed by the people of Pine Island?

Chad Golden:
I did. Our help was limited, we were a small group with 100% donated items. The help we were able to provide, limited as it was, seemed to give some hope to the people we were able to meet and support. Hope seemed to help more than anything else. Something as simple as pumping up a car tire for a woman with an air compressor I have in my truck overwhelmed her with a sense of relief.

GEORGE:
What did you take away most from this event?

Chad Golden:
For me, it was a stark reminder that as an individual or as a family, you definitely need to be able to sustain life for at least 7 days when such an event occurs. Especially in areas where such natural disasters are common. You could say it is a personal responsibility.

John Witherspoon:
Right. The first one was probably the most positive thing, being able to help others and seeing others volunteer to do the same thing. And that’s something that I realized in the process, that other people don’t do it for that reason. It’s a side effect, you could say, that it’s therapeutic for them to help other people and sort of have a mission or a goal or something, especially for former military, because that’s what you did all those years in the military, and then you’re out and you don’t have that anymore and you miss it. You miss the camaraderie, the goal of helping others and things like that. For some of them, I think it was therapeutic to go out there and actually help others, so you get the benefit of actually helping people in need, and then what that means to the person helping, which I never thought about until I had this experience.
I think we’ve worked really well together, a lot of us. The ones that we have actually partnered with and collaborated with. But that’s, I think, with any disaster. It takes a while for everybody to make those initial adjustments so that they work better together, and maybe that’s something that we need to work on before a disaster.

John Witherspoon:

Oh, I especially took away the realization that the people who come to do this work become a little more alive as a result. They come as volunteers. And as you remember, they were not easy days, it was hard work. But when you volunteer, when you risk a little bit to help others, when you feel a little bit uncomfortable, when you struggle a little bit, but also when you serve others and do good, life comes alive again. That’s what I take away, is to realize how much that makes people come alive. My big win, besides all the people that we helped, that we rescued, that we evacuated, that we roofed, that we provided health and welfare checks to, is probably the new friends among the volunteers. Hopefully we will all go back to helping others in the future and continue to grow the team of volunteers and supporters.

I run everything like a family. When I’m in the military, we run everything like a family, and that works pretty well.

GEORGE:

Can you tell me how it felt for you to see people from all states coming together and helping people and what it means for you as an American?

John Witherspoon:

Yeah, the interesting thing about America is how big it is, right? Unlike many other countries, where when something like this hits a country the size of Germany, a much larger percentage of the country is affected, right? But I think they always talk about the American spirit and things like that. I think deep down we still have a lot of that. Maybe it has diminished a little bit because of the iPhones. I don’t know if the iPhones are really the reason, but people are becoming more selfish, and so maybe it has diminished a little bit. But I think deep down, it’s still there. But it’s mostly the attitude that you can do anything. That’s right. I’ll find a way to solve this problem, or whatever the problem is. Finding creative ways to solve problems and fix problems, not just following the rules, so to speak.

How the mainstream tried to politicize Hurricane Ian

Governor Ron DeSantis held press conferences in Fort Myers and North Port when the mainstream media and President Joe Biden tried to politicize Hurricane IAN and make it a consequence of climate change. The question of whether Hurricane IAN is a consequence of the climate crisis cannot be answered so easily, since it is not possible to draw direct conclusions about climate change from individual events. This was also communicated by the Florida government, which focused on helping the affected regions rather than discussing a new Green Deal in the U.S., which mainstream media and Washington D.C. tried so hard to do. DeSantis responded days before the hurricane hit the Floridian mainland with disaster response and preparations to repair the imminent damage.

GEORGE:

Do you think the mainstream media is right in blaming climate change for this hurricane and its destruction?

Chad Golden:

I have no expertise in this area. But I do have some common sense. I believe that climate change had nothing to do with hurricane recovery efforts in any area of Hurricane Ian’s path of destruction. I think it would be very helpful if the media would help with recovery efforts in all natural disasters. They have resources, a lot of resources.

GEORGE:

Do you think Governor DeSantis has done his job right?

Chad Golden:

It is easy for anyone to criticize Governor DeSantis’ response to Hurricane Ian. However, there were people on Pine Island who told me they saw first responders (sheriffs, police officers, etc.) being flown by helicopter to the northern Pine Island area within hours of Ian passing. The state also had hundreds of utility vehicles on standby waiting to respond and get utilities back on line. The only bridge/road leading to Pine Island was destroyed by the hurricane. Within a few days, the road was repaired to the point where utility vehicles, police officers and other first responders could get to the island. In the end, any action is better than no action.

Florida – DeSantisland

Ron Desantis is secure in the Governor’s seat and Hurricane Ian has only made him more popular. Ron DeSantis showed leadership and a clear head in the worst natural disaster in Florida in 1000 years, not being swayed by narratives or agendas. The respect for Desantis from Floridians was confirmed with an election victory on November 08, 2022.

The border crisis isn’t just a problem in Texas border counties, it extends to Brooks County, 70 miles away, where Sheriff Urbino “Benny” Martinez and ranch owners like Dr. Mike Vickers must contend almost daily with the aftermath of the invasion by illegal immigrants into the United States.

Brooks County, a county located in the U.S. state of Texas, with a population of approximately 7,076 people. The county seat is Falfurrias. It is one of the poorest counties in Texas. Much of the county is made up of large ranches.

This county, despite the border with Mexico being 70 miles away, is one of the most used transit points for the thousands of illegal immigrants smuggled into the U.S. undetected and making their way through the Rio Grande Valley. Some illegals from the groups die trying to cross the valley, some from dehydration, and others are silenced for obstructing the group’s passage through the valley.

Children and women are left to die in the desert, many of them raped. Sheriff Martinez and his deputies are trying to deal with the situation daily but with the lack of federal support and masses of people pouring into the county on a daily and weekly basis, it is almost impossible to do so.

One-Man Standing

County Sheriff Urbino “Benny” Martinez has one of the smallest budgets to do his job of protecting the residents of his county. Resources and manpower are lacking to deal with the situation of so many illegals. Martinez hasn’t heard from Washington in a long time. Nightly chases, arrests of smugglers and illegal runners are mostly handled by one deputy. Night vision devices and bulletproof vests are procured and paid for by the police officers themselves.

How long have you been sheriff of Brooks County?

Sheriff Martinez: I’ve been the sheriff for Brooks County the last six years.

How many deputies do you have? How big is your county?

Sheriff Martinez: The county is 944 square miles. I usually operate with one deputy that handles that. But I do have a commander—and I’m including everyone here; the commander and the captain—one deputy that handles the calls themselves. I have a couple of CID guys. Let me see … five, maybe six.

How many illegals do you encounter in a week, alive or dead? How many do you have to pursue? Are there some who will find you?

Sheriff Martinez: Well, it varies based on actual interaction. We can interact with between 50 to 80. But you’re talking about a week, so we’re looking at anywhere between 80 and 100. What we do varies because sometimes we have bailouts and we only can apprehend maybe 2 possibly 3 out of the 20 who ran out of the truck, so it’s hard to say. Actual contact … it could be 3 versus 17 getaways. I would say anywhere between 80 to 100 in a week, which was your original question.

Does your staff have adequate and proper equipment to serve in this situation, to fulfill their service and complete their job in a safe manner?

Sheriff Martinez: No, of course not. I’d probably need to at least double what I have. If I had between 15 and 20 boots on the ground, that would be much more efficient than what I have now. It would double the resources. As it is, we rely a lot on Border Patrol to help us. We also rely on state police and local city police because we simply don’t have adequate resources.

Does your staff receive proper gear from the State, or do they have to purchase the proper gear themselves?

Sheriff Martinez: We get the gear as frequently as we can. Is the proper gear what they have? Yes. But does it get outdated? Yes. Do we have the funds to upgrade? No, so we rely on grants and other resources for them to get the gear that is needed.

Do you get adequate support from the federal government?

Sheriff Martinez: Well, the support we get from the federal government is simply grant monies to help Border Patrol, to be a force multiplier with Border Patrol. It’s what those monies are for, right? Those are the only funds. We’re lacking the monies the county lost. It’s been 10 years since we lost almost $700,000 on recovering bodies. We’ve been trying to recover those bodies and to no avail. It’s just one of those things that we need to keep at until we get those funds back.

Valley of Death

Rio Grande Valley residents call it the Valley of Death because has become a tragic routine for many ranch owners to find human remains or bodies on their properties. One of the deputies’ main duties has become to recover human remains and bodies from surrounding ranches and categorize them forensically as much as possible. Extra training has even been required for deputies to perform this task. Since the Biden Administration, the number of body discoveries has increased by 250 percent in 2021 compared to 2020.

What percentage of increase in dead bodies have you seen in the last 10 years?

Sheriff Martinez: How many have we seen in the last 10 years in person? Percentagewise, in the last 10 years? It’s over 50, 60 percent, maybe more, because it varies. On average, we’re at 80 percent. That’s the average. At times, we’ll see maybe 20, 30 even 80 percent above that. That’s what we’re seeing if you look at it percentagewise.

Why do some people call your valley “The Valley of Death”?

Sheriff Martinez: Yes, some people call it that because we’ve recovered over 900 dead since 2009. We’ve recovered 180 bodies in the last 20 months. That’s why they call it ‘Death Valley’, because we’re 70 miles north of the border and some just can’t make it. This morning we found a little girl that was left behind yesterday. We found her, she was still alive and once she received a bit of medical care, she did well. I say she did well because she’s alive, so that’s a good thing. That’s truly a good thing. Or she would have been another statistic for us.

Not only does the sheriff’s team have to deal with the collateral damage of the border crisis, but ranchers live with this tragedy daily. Can you imagine what they face finding women and children left behind or their remains on their property … it’s heartbreaking.

Deceived and left alone by the government

Washington DC has been trying for months to convince citizens in the United States that the situation on

the border is under control and that not a single American citizen has been negatively affected by this crisis. However, the fact is that many American citizens, especially ranchers, are being negatively affected.

Thousands of feet of fencing are damaged weekly and must be paid for by the landowners themselves, which can be $1000 to $2000 a month per ranch, in addition to the cost of lost, injured or killed livestock. Destroyed gates and stolen pick-up trucks are now part of the ranchers’ daily routine. Not to forget the tragic loss of life.

Dr. Mike Vickers is one of the ranchers who must live with these problems. To keep some control, he trained his German Shepherds to provide security for his property, they are trained to take illegals into custody and make sure they don’t run away until the Border Patrol or Sheriff come to arrest them.

What is the size of your ranch?

Dr. M. Vickers: This ranch is 1000 acres.

How many times in a week do you find illegals who have died on your property?

Dr. M. Vickers: Not weekly, but we have some. The ranch south of me is 110,000 acres and the one north is over 48,000 acres, so collectively there are a lot.

How many unaccompanied children do you find?

Dr. M. Vickers: We find a lot of unaccompanied children

Your German Shepherds are a huge help in keeping your property safe – how many criminal illegals would you say they’ve helped put in custody?

Dr. M. Vickers: The dogs have helped with over 800 illegals, now in custody, just in

our house pastures.

How high are your monthly costs to rebuild the fences around your property?

Dr. M. Vickers: Fence repairs run $1000 to $2000 per month.

Do you get any support from the federal government?

Dr. M. Vickers: None. No financial support from the State or Federal government.

No longer the America that once was ….

The mainstream media and federal government talk about the best America in a long time, not everyone sees it in Brooks County.

Do you think the U.S. has changed since this border crisis got out of control?

Sheriff Martinez: Absolutely changed. Some people might not admit or talk about it, but yeah, of course it’s changed. Anytime you see the influx as it is, as you’re coming in, your infrastructure is going to hurt because the infrastructure is not built to that. You can’t build that fast to meet the expectations of those coming in. So, it has absolutely changed.

It’s one of those issues that if you don’t have the infrastructure to support it, you’re going to see a change; the volume, the medical care, the resources that you need, your community service resources, et cetera, et cetera. Even the schools are going to have to improvise for that also. Housing. Everything that anyone, any family member goes through, it’s just been quadrupled or more just because of the influx of people.

Do you feel safe on your property?

Dr. M. Vickers: Only feel safe when well-armed.

Do you think the border crisis is more an invasion than a crisis?

Sheriff Martinez: At this point, you can probably call it that simply because of the volume of people coming in. There’s too many of them. It goes back to what I said earlier. Not enough resources to house all of them or medical resources to assist in their care. Anything that we use as a norm, is not a norm for them. That must be sped up, put in the front row so they can be treated and be taken care of, not only in terms of education, but also in terms of wellness and health issues. It’s just too overwhelming right now to say that we have everything in place to take care of them.

Do you think the open border policy is a betrayal to the American people?

Dr. M. Vickers: Open Borders are a huge betrayal to all Americans.

A completely different portrait of a modern-day Madame Butterfly

Who has not met her at one of the big freedom and truth events and not been
drawn to her beaming smile? Tomoko Jones is an icon at events like the Reawakening
Tour or CPAC events. Who is this Japanese beauty that reminds every onlooker of Madame Butterfly from Giacomo Puccini’s opera? GEORGE had the chance to get to know Tomoko better and further enchanted by her in an interview.

GEORGE: What was it like growing up in Japan?

Tomoko Jones (TJ): I had a happy childhood. Life in Japan was easy. My father was a cruise ship captain, often gone for weeks at a time. The family was healthy, we lived comfortably. My childhood was mostly in the Tokyo area. It was easy to get around with the extensive train system. With little crime even young children would travel alone by train. There were great restaurants, and much to see and do. I often traveled with friends to the mountains for snowboarding on weekends.

I was popular in school; had friends I am still in touch with today. Higher education, while competitive, was very affordable. I studied English in college and eventually went on to a modeling career. I became a GT Race Queen, enjoying a brief period of celebrity before getting married and moving to America. It was a fun experience. I met interesting people and developed skills in communication with a diverse fan base.

GEORGE: How did you come to immigrate to the USA?

TJI: I married an American man, so the immigration process was easy. We met at the Semikron Japan trade show where I worked as a promotional model. He worked for a semiconductor equipment company, where we worked together in his company’s trade show booth. For several years we would get together when he was in Japan visiting customers. He was handsome, kind and eventually I fell in love with him. We married the 4th of September, then 9/11 happened. The world had suddenly become crazy. My father worried about me moving to America, worried my English was not good enough. My mother worried I had not sufficient training to take care of my husband, and I worried that 9/11 would halt the immigration process but was able to get my green card one month later. I have lived in Austin, Texas ever since. My parents’ concerns, not an issue.

GEORGE: What differences do you see in the two countries and their cultures?

TJ: Japanese and Americans are quite different. The Japanese people are more humble, more apologetic, more courteous, and tend to avoid confrontation. American friends suggested I not say I am sorry so often. Japanese people work hard, are highly organized and meticulous. I am sometimes frustrated by service provided by American workers. A Japanese worker would never forget to include ketchup with your French fries.

Everything in Japan is a process and there are rules. This can be annoying at times. In trying to resign from a job found out I could not resign by simply giving notice. There was a process to go through and had to continue working. That seems so odd to me now, but that is the Japanese way.

I never really felt restrictions on freedom living in Japan, but over the years I have come to see that the Japanese people are not as free as they may think. Some of which may be tradition but wonder if such traditions had been intentionally designed over the centuries to control the populace. One summer while visiting, I enrolled my daughter in a Japanese kindergarten. Each day when I picked her up, the teacher would complain that my daughter refused to stand in a line and sing along with the other kids. I marveled at the ability of the teacher to get three-year old children to line up, stand at attention in cute little military style uniforms and sing together. Obedience and structured life of Japanese people is learned from an early age. You must follow the rules. A non-compliant three-year-old is not acceptable in Japan.

The Japanese love their country and will do whatever their government tells them to do, no matter how absurd. I have come to realize that the Japanese people learn from childhood to be compliant. When their government tells them to wear a mask, they do. When they are told to get vaccinated, they dutifully line up for the shot. Of course, all the same propaganda by mass media in Japan, we see here in America. Few Japanese question government mandates even when presented with facts that contradict the government narrative. I see this happening in America also, and it concerns me, but in Japan the population is under a spell. Citizens taught to care about society, not about the individual or individual freedoms that are so much more important to Americans. So, there is still hope for freedom in America.

GEORGE: How did you become so active in the freedom and truth movement in the U.S.?

TJ: It all started with covid. People were getting sick and dying. Did not take long for doctors to figure out how to treat covid. It was shocking to think these treatments were intentionally withheld by the government. Even more shocking that it was happening in concert all around the world. People were dying in hospitals and governments were allowing it to happen. Then came the masking, distancing, shutdowns, and for the first time felt I was no longer living in a free society. Our government was intentionally trying to kill us. Why were potentially lifesaving treatments not made available? Why was information about these treatments censored? Why were people allowed to die? Were hospitals killing people? Doing extensive research, I started to learn about the WEF, Bill Gates, Soros, and the Great Reset.

Then came the November 2020 elections, and the purpose of the pandemic became clear. Our country was under attack. On Jan 6, my daughter and I went to DC. It was reassuring to see so many people ready to rise. The country was not going down without a fight.

When the vaccines came, we learned quickly they were dangerous and did not work. Yet our government continuously lied about the safety and efficacy; there was no longer any doubt the country, the world we know and love was in trouble.

Even with all this happening, it seemed clear to me, so many people are complying. You could not talk to them without being labeled a conspiracy theorist. I felt a need to get involved, to be around people that knew more than I did about what was happening. I started attending events and networking with people. I have learned so much about what is really going on. Now my plan now is to share the truth with the Japanese people.

GEORGE: Who were the most exciting people you met on your travels to major events of the freedom and truth movement?

TJ: All the people I have met have been exciting to meet. People at these events are full of energy, it is inspiring to me. Many have given me new hope, encouraged me and I have learned so much from so many. I love talking to people in person, it helps me understand what they are really saying and know they are truthful. The patriots I have met are amazing people, I enjoy spending time with them, and love their fighting spirit

GEORGE: Why are the MAGA and America First movement so important to you?

TJ: I do not want to give up our freedom. I love Trump’s “America first!” policies. We need to give power back to the people. Current government is not working for the people anymore. I support candidates who will work for the people. I did not care about politics maybe a year ago. But now care very deeply. I attended fundraisers in Mar a Lago and Bedminster. I met political candidates and wonderful supporters. So many are new to politics as well. I believe these people will clean up corruption in our government, fix our election system, flush out the communists that have infiltrated our government agencies, schools, corporations, and undo horrible policies of the Biden administration that are destroying the country. Our November elections are so important.

GEORGE: What obstacles have you encountered in the freedom and truth movement and life in general in the United States?

TJ: One of the wonderful things about America is there are no obstacles. At least I have not encountered any, until covid of course. As for the movement, the main obstacle is access to information. It is not that information is hard to find, but intentionally hidden from casual observers. Mainstream media feeds people limited information, only information the government wants you to know. If we consume only mainstream information, we will not know vaccines are bioweapons, we will not know our elections are fraudulent, we would not know the extent of our economic collapse and think everything will be simply fine. My husband’s business partner only listened to NPR radio in the morning, NPR cable news in the evening. My husband warned him of the dangers of the vaccines, he would not listen. NPR said they were safe, and everyone needed to get vaccinated. When the vaccines came out he was first in line. Last November the booster shot killed him.

GEORGE: What about the freedom and truth movement in Japan? Are there similar movements there?

TJ: I am unsure, my focus has been here. I will be getting more involved in Japan in the months ahead. Japan has been in a perpetual state of mass formation for a long time, so it may be hopeless, but I need to try. So many Japanese people love Trump. Japan has always been somewhat of a closed society, and many disliked Abe’s globalist views. I suppose their love for Trump stems from his America first policies and their longing for leaders in Japan to express the same for their country.
