US House of Representative, Florida
Congressman Byron Donalds proudly hails from Brooklyn, New York. With
degrees from Florida State University, Congressman Donalds had a successful
career in finance and wealth management, and in the Florida House of
Representatives before becoming a Member of Congress. He was elected in
November 2020, with over 62% of the vote in the general election.
Rep. Donalds served four years in the Florida House of Representatives and was a
champion of education reform, criminal justice reform, and election integrity. Rep.
Donalds serves as just one of two African-Americans Republicans in the United
States House of Representatives.
Rep. Donalds proudly represents Florida’s 19th Congressional District, which
encompasses Southwest Florida along the Gulf of Mexico. The district stretches
from the cities of Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Naples, and Marco Island.
During the 117th Congress, Rep. Donalds is proud to serve and hold membership
on the following Congressional Committees & Subcommittees: House Budget
Committee, House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Civil Rights & Civil
Liberties Subcommittee, the Economic & Consumer Policy Subcommittee, the
House Small Business Committee, Economic Growth, Tax, and Capital Access
Subcommittee, and the Oversight, Investigations, and Regulations Subcommittee.
former Texas State Senator
Don has proven to be a fearless and effective defender of government accountability and fiscal restraint. He was the most conservative member of the Texas Senate, where he served Dallas County’s Senate District 16 until 2019 and led the fight to support term limits, eliminate taxes, protect life, and defend Second Amendment rights. The only Texas state senator in history to never accept a penny of government money during his tenure, Don was outraged by the corruption and flagrant disregard for Texas taxpayers that he saw firsthand among the political elites in Austin. He also authored legislation uncovering the largest government corruption scandal in Texas history: Don’s work resulted in the elimination of a crooked government agency, called Dallas County Schools, that stole tens of millions of dollars from state taxpayers. Six people were thrown in prison after being exposed for their roles in the scheme. Don is a fifth-generation Texan and self-made businessman—unlike career politicians beholden to the Austin swamp, Don is sacrificing his success in industry to step back into the political arena and do what’s right for the Lone Star State. He is committed to fighting tirelessly for Texans, who have been let down by lying politicians for far too long. He believes that if we lose our freedom in Texas, there’s nowhere left to flee to.

Mr. Klein is widely regarded as one of the leading Jewish activists in the United States. Morton Klein is a child of Holocaust survivors, born in a displaced persons camp in Gunzberg, Germany.
The national Jewish weekly, “The Forward” named Morton Klein one of the top five Jewish leaders in the U.S. today, stating “It’s impossible to deny that Klein has been extraordinarily effective.” The U.S. Department of State has awarded Klein a “Certificate of Appreciation” “in recognition of outstanding contributions to national and international affairs,” after he delivered a major address there.

The Jerusalem Post has called the ZOA, “one of the most important and influential groups in the U.S. today.” The Wall Street Journal called the ZOA “heroic and the most credible advocate for Israel on the American Jewish scene today” and we should “snap a salute to those who were right about Oslo and Arafat all along, including Morton Klein who was wise, brave, and unflinchingly honest. When the history of the American Jewish struggle in these years is written, Mr. Klein will emerge as an outsized figure.”
The New York Times, in a profile called “Public Lives,” called Morton Klein, “a man who ferrets out anti-Semitism wherever it is, a rare voice from the outset in the American Jewish community against the Oslo Accords, and an iconoclast who is a prolific speechmaker, writer, and Congressional lobbyist.”
Mort Klein’s successful campaigns against anti-Israel bias in leading textbooks, travel guides, universities, churches, and the media, as well as his work on Capitol Hill, were the subject of 40 feature stories both here and in Israel.

American Freedom Alliance
Trevor Loudon is an author, filmmaker and public speaker from Christchurch, New Zealand. For more than 30 years, he has researched radical left, Marxist and terrorist movements and their covert influence on mainstream politics.
Trevor Loudon’s thesis is that what is commonly regarded as mainstream political policy is in fact driven and guided by hidden subversive elements. The Democratic party’s consistent defunding of the US military, Obamacare, the Iran Nuclear Deal, normalization of relations with Cuba, Islamic refugee re-settlement, $15 minimum wage, fracking bans, pipeline shutdowns and the push for illegal alien amnesty are all consistent with far-left and Islamist agendas.
Trevor Loudon believes that these forces must be exposed and countered, as America’s continued role as a bastion of freedom is pivotal for the future of western civilization.
Trevor is currently working on his new film with Director Judd Saul: “Enemies Within: The Church.”
Some of Trevor Loudon’s accomplishments:
In February, 2020 Trevor Loudon published WHITE HOUSE REDS: Communists, Socialists & Security Risks Running for US President, 2020.
Trevor’s hard-hitting political documentary, the Enemies Within, was released in 2016.
In Collaboration with the Capital Research Center, Trevor Loudon and Director Judd Saul created a series of mini-documentaries free to the public:
America Under Siege: Civil War 2017
America Under Siege: Soviet Islam
America Under Siege: Antifa
Trevor Loudon discovered the long-hidden relationship between notorious Hawaiian Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and the young Barack Obama in 2007.
After extensively researching Obama’s ties to the New York and Chicago Marxist movements, Loudon began publishing his findings online, catching the eye of such prominent voices as Accuracy in Media and syndicated radio host Glenn Beck.
In 2009 Loudon exposed the communist roots of Obama “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones. After an extensive campaign by Glenn Beck and others, Jones was forced to resign from his White House position.
Since 2011 Loudon has toured the United States promoting his two books “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within” and “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” – an extensively footnoted expose of the rapidly unfolding Marxist takeover of the United States government.
Loudon has addressed more than 400 conservative, tea party, religious and Republican groups in more than 37 states.
Loudon has interviewed many people from both sides of the struggle over the years to former Western intelligence offices, to government undercover operatives inside the communist movement, to former KGB officers.
The above research has given Loudon unique insight into how extensively often minuscule communist parties have been able to manipulate, and even control policy formation in many Western countries – particularly the “main enemy:” the United States of America. Loudon’s research shows that this is not just a historical problem, but is a very grave and looming threat which will not only impact America’s national security but indeed her very survival.
Trevor proudly serves as a fellow at both the American Freedom Alliance and the Inter-American Institute for Philosophy, Government, and Social Thought.

Lt. Col. Allen West
Former US Congressman
US Army Commissioned Officer, retired
Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Allen B. West is a Christian constitutional conservative,
combat veteran, and former member of the US Congress. His life has been
defined as one of service, sacrifice, and commitment to this Republic, the United
States of America. He believes it will be conservative, free market policies, not
politics that secures a sound economic future for Americans – with growth,
opportunity and returning the promise of the American dream for this generation
and those to come.
Allen West was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia in the same neighborhood
where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached. He is the third of four
generations of military servicemen, all combat veterans, in his family.
West was commissioned through ROTC at the University of Tennessee as a
Second Lieutenant (2LT) on July 31, 1982. He entered active duty service in the
U.S. Army on November 1, 1983 at Fort Sill to attend the Field Artillery Officer
Basic Course. He later attended airborne and jumpmaster training at Fort
Benning. West’s first assignment was as an airborne infantry company fire
support team leader and battalion training officer in the 325th Airborne Battalion
Combat Team. In 1987, he was promoted to Captain and attended the Field
Artillery Officer Advanced Course.
He was then assigned to the 1st Infantry Division, where he commanded Bravo
Battery, 6th Field Artillery Regiment and was a Battalion Task Force fire support
officer for 2d Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment. While with the 1st Infantry
Division, he participated in Operations Desert Shield and Operation Desert
After redeployment from Kuwait, West served as an ROTC instructor at Kansas
State University from 1991 to 1994. In January 1995, he was assigned to the 2nd
Infantry Division Support Command as the Assistant Operations/Combat Plans
Officer. During that time, West was promoted to Major and selected for
attendance to the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College and graduated
in 1997. Afterward, he became the Operations Officer of the 18th Field Artillery
Brigade (Airborne), followed by an assignment as the Executive Officer of the 1st
Battalion (Air Assault), 377th Field Artillery Regiment. Upon completion of these
positions, West was assigned to the II Marine Expeditionary Force in Camp
Lejeune, and selected to serve as an Army exchange officer to this headquarters
from 1999 to 2002.
West’s culminating assignment to his career was as Battalion Commander of the
2nd Battalion 20th Field Artillery, 4th Infantry Division. He assumed command of
this unit on June 6, 2002. He deployed with his unit during the Iraq War in 2003
and continued to command his battalion until his retirement from the Army in

After his retirement from the Army in 2004, Allen taught high school in South
Florida for a year before volunteering and deploying to Afghanistan as a civilian
military adviser to the Afghan army, an assignment he finished in November
In November of 2010, Allen was honored to continue his oath of service to his
country when he was elected to the United States Congress, representing
Florida’s 22nd District. As a member of the 112th Congress, West introduced
seven major pieces of legislation, and was the original sponsor of H. R. 1246
which reduces costs at the Department of Defense, was passed unanimously
(393-0), and signed into law by President Obama as part of the National Defense
Authorization Act. Congressman West voted for the Balanced Budget
Amendment, and voted for over 30 different bills designed to empower small
businesses, reduce government barriers to job creation, boost American
competitiveness, encourage entrepreneurship and growth, and maximize
American energy production.
