On June 24th, 2019, Barry Donadio was awarded the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal (GWOT-SM) for his service while still in the military back in 2002. The United States had just been attacked on September 11th, 2001 and we had not yet invaded Iraq when Donadio served on anti-terrorism operations from September 2001 until August 2002. Donadio was then honorably discharged from military service in 2002 and transferred to the United States Secret Service. He spent the next ten years in serving the United States Government.

Donadio originally did not receive the medal because he was already out of the military when the medal was established on March 12th, 2003, via executive order 13289.


Global War on Terrorism Service Medal (GWOT-SM)

The criteria to receive the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal is that a military service member must have served on active duty during a designated anti-terrorism operation. They had to serve for a minimum 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days on such operation. For those who were engaged in combat, killed, or wounded in the line of duty the time requirement is waived.


Barry Donadio, October 2001

Donadio said; “I would like to thank Shawn Jester, Constituent Liaison of Congressman Andy Harris M.D. (R) for assisting me to obtain this prestigious medal. I would also like to thank Congressman Andy Harris who not only helped me but has been instrumental in helping other Veterans in Maryland. I really appreciate his devotion to serving Maryland citizens.”

Donadio will add his newly awarded Global War on Terrorism Service Medal to his corrected DD-214 military record along with his already existing Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, National Defense Medal, and four honorable discharges to name a few.

Since completing his military service and government service, Donadio stays active as an advocate for other Veterans. He is a member of the Kent Island American Legion Post 278 and a lifetime member of the Veteran’s of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Grasonville, MD.

2013′s 13 Most Dangerous Californians

There are so many dangerous, powerful and just flat wrong Californians … how can I pick just 13? That’s easy … by starting at #13 and counting down.

#13 – Mary Nichols, Director, California Air Resources Board

Mary NicholsAs the chief enforcer of AB32, California’s Quixotic crusade to single-handedly stop global warming, Nichols has led the charge to tax industry on carbon emissions, force us into less-safe cars, and shower today’s generation of Robber Barron capitalists with piles of our tax dollars as “incentives” for green energy. Her efforts to set truck diesel emission levels low enough to force most truckers out of business was so corrupted – with her full knowledge and consent – that it is tied up in lawsuits.

#12 – Matthew Rodriguez, Sec. for Environmental Protection/CalEPA

RodriquezCalEPA – which you can thank for women’s false fearsabout a link between passive smoke and breast cancer – has long thrown its weight behind unproven (unprovable?) science. Especially if it increases the power of the state. Rodriguez has globe-hopped this year promoting California’s carbon tax scheme to other countries. He says he’s doing no such thing, as he’s “loathe to get involved in the international discussions” about carbon credits. Yeah, but he said that at a UN carbon credits conference … in Poland.

POLL: Does the Federal Government routinely assume powers that it is not granted by the Constitution?

#11 – Ron Calderon, D-Montebello

ron-calderonHis state senate district includes the jaw-droppingly corrupt city of Bell, and Calderon can match that city’s cesspool of corruption dollar-for-dollar. Calderon isn’t just a player in Sacramento’s pay-for-play underbelly, he’s its poster boy, waving around expensive cigars after more expensive meals at even more expensive posh resorts, all paid for by lobbyists and favor-seekers. His political empire is crashing now in an FBI investigation, so if there’s any  justice at all for us taxpayers, he’ll soon be sharing a very un-posh jail cell with disgraced Bell city manager Robert Rizzo.

#10 – Pam O’Connor, Santa Monica Councilmember and Statist

Pam O'ConnorThere are, unfortunately, hundreds of big-government power-grabbers in California, but O’Connor takes the Gov Girls Gone Wild thing to a higher level. The former mayor of the People’s Republic of Santa Monica is a big player at the appropriately named SCAG (SoCal Area Governments). There she chairs its Regional Comprehensive Plan Task Force, whose goal it is to tell ushow they know we should live – crowded into urban flats our forefathers had the wisdom to flee, taking mass transit (she also chairs LA’s money-losing Transit Authority) to green jobs so we can pay more and more taxes.

#9 – Dan Richard, Chair, California High Speed Rail Authority

Dan RichardIt was a bad year for the CHSRA this year, and for reasons much worse than its lack of a cool acronym like CARB or SCAG. It seems that judges want to hold Richard’s agency to the promises made in the ballot initiative that created it, and if that weren’t bad enough, the feds insist on treating it like any other rail agency. The nerve. Still, Richard soldiers on, convinced that if he can bamboozle Californians into letting him build just one forlorn stretch of track in the hinterlands, the money machine won’t shut off until the entire money-losing monstrosity is completed.

#8 Roxanne Sanchez, President, SEIU Local 1021

Roxanne SanchezSanchez heads one of two Bay Area Rapid Transit unions whose strikes subjected 400,000 Bay Area commuters to chaos earlier this year. She became the face of public employee hubris as she articulated the arguments why workers whose average salary is over $70,000 a year plus $11,000 in overtime – and who contribute nothing toward their lucrative retirement packages – should get a raise of 23 percent. As if that weren’t enough, after a deal was struck, she sued BART over a fine point in the new contract to get even more money.

By Oscar Y. Harward


North Carolina’s ‘choice’ candidate for US Senate in 2014 is Mark Harris.  Mark Harris represents a transfer of Ronald Reagan’s character with principles on the fiscal, social, and National Security issues.


President Ronald Reagan was a trusted leader.  A ‘true leader’ must believe, live, teach, practice, and represent the character with principles as Ronald Reagan did with words:


  1. Job creation:  “And because we've opened up the economy, lowered tax rates, and restored the ideal of limited government and free enterprise -- for all these reasons, America today stands poised for even greater economic growth in the year ahead. But even as we celebrate all that we have accomplished, we must acknowledge that hanging over the future are some enormous ifs.”


  2. Lower Taxes:  “If we keep tax rates down, economic incentives will remain strong.”   “Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.”


  1. A Balanced Budget: “We don't have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven't taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much” “If we keep tax rates down, economic incentives will remain strong.”


  1. Second Amendment:  “As long as there are guns, the individual that wants a gun for a crime is going to have one and going to get it. The only person who’s going to be penalized and have difficulty is the law-abiding citizen, who then cannot have [it] if he wants protection -- the protection of a weapon in his home.”


  2. A Military that is second to none:  “How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”  One another occasion, “Trust, but verify.”


  3. Constitutional freedoms: "If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth."


  4. Limited Government:  "I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts."


  1. Pro-life.  “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”


  2.  Welfare:  "Welfare's purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence."


  3.   Faith:  “We believe faith and freedom must be our guiding stars, for they show us truth, they make us brave, give us hope, and leave us wiser than we were.”


Mark Harris does equate to these Ronald Reagan values.  As we appraise and discover more about Mark Harris, his life,  his character, leadership, wisdoms,  and his positive beliefs on the fiscal, social, and National Security issues, most North Carolinians may concur that Mark Harris for US Senate is North Carolina’s choice as another Ronald Reagan duplicate leader of tomorrow.

I wished I had a video of my confrontation with Harris County's Judge Ed Emmett. 4063587471?profile=originalYou should of been a fly on the wall of the Montgomery County Republican's Women luncheon last Thursday, Sept. 27,2012.  Judge Emmett was speaking and after he finished the incoming 2013 MCRW President Mary Lea Kirk, stood up and mentioned concern over the Harmony Schools, Fethullah Gulen and Islam. The Judge immediately got up and said he disagreed with her and said Harmony Academy Schools are fantastic, they are peaceful people and kids are on a waiting list to get it.

I confronted him afterwards and he was defensive from the start. He made a statement saying "just because Eagle Forum is concerned about the movement should not bring cause for alarm." He would ask me questions in a derogatory tone "Have you read the Quran?" "Do you speak Arabic?". Our conversation became pretty heated and I tried to end it saying that we would have agree to disagree and we would know when we see the Lord Jesus. He misunderstood what I said and threw his arms up in the air and walked off saying "I have had it and will not have someone question my faith". Fortunately there were others that were there to witness his emotional tantrum. I really wished someone would of had it on video. He rejoined in the conversation berating and continually questioning me "Do you think all Muslim are bad?" I just responded "I question any faith that reads the Quran which calls for the killing of the infidels and it is others like him that will not acknowledge the danger of Islam that will destroy this country."

I walked away in tears startled by this man's behavior and treatment of me. I wonder if he treats all women that way who take a diffent stance than he does on a issue?

The MCRW current president Alice Melancon called me yesterday to apologize and inferred that the Judge's behavior  was out of line.

Judge Ed Emmett is not on our side. He is a name dropper with a short fuse and Napoleon complex. He is all for social justice as you will see in this article.

These videos are the Judge speaking at a Gulen Institute luncheon.

This is a website many articles from wikileaks on Fethullah Gulen

Pass it on.... Judge Emmett needs to be voted out!!
