Four Very Brave Women

With thanks to my friend, Diana West, for the video link and for her stirring essay.  I’m republishing it here:

The Power of Righteous Women

Written by Diana West  –  October 10, 2016

There is something almost magical about this three and a half minutes of video, capturing that pre-debate moment when Donald Trump began again to pull back his slingshot and aim, this time with more accuracy and sureness, at the Uniparty-Unimedia Behemoth; this time, with righteous women at his side.

Paula, Juanita and Kathleen: Thank you for standing up and speaking out about what the Clintons did to you for all these many years. Kathy, thank you for coming forward more recently to add your name to this crucially important quest to expose the Clintons’ corruption and violation not only of your precious persons, but of the entire body politic.

You, and women like you, personally suffered the torment that the rapacious and meglomanical Clinton couple has inflicted; and that the political-media phalanx, from MSM-Left to Bush-Family-Right, which has served and protected the Clintons for all of these decades, made seemingly eternal. It is this phalanx that stood in the way of justice; that ignored you; denied your existence; slandered you; shunted you aside, off to the corners, the odd headline, the occasional interview, the books they didn’t write or read, anywhere and any way they could sideline you, and, most of all, silence the bells you were ringing out of hurt and rage and frustration at the wrong of it all, to keep them from echoing across the country.

It worked. It worked for decades, and it would have worked forever if Donald Trump had not come along and broken ranks with the power-money elites whence he came very early in his campaign, and, more important, if had not needed you, really needed you, all of you, now, at the end of it.

Thank you for answering his call. Your moral and emotional support cannot be underestimated. Together, you and this most singular of GOP presidential nominees, on the public stage, with his charisma and vast political potential, and your righteous examples and inspirational support, you are the dynamite that can blow this whole corrupt power structure, which the Clintons have done so much and for so long to poison and profit from, to smithereens.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
