Women for Trump draw crowd of 100 for campaign stop in Old Orchard Beach
Trump’s daughter-in-law and dozens of his female supporters gathered for a campaign event at a well-known beach-side restaurant in southern Maine on Wednesday.
Leading chants of “four more years” and “U.S.A.,” Lara Trump, the wife of the president’s middle son, Eric, and other prominent Republicans kicked off a Women for Trump bus tour that stopped at Jimmy the Greek’s restaurant in Old Orchard Beach on Wednesday afternoon.
“Does anybody remember how great it felt on Nov. 8, 2016?” Lara Trump asked the crowd of about 100 people. “Remember the media meltdown when they had to say Donald Trump was our 45th president? Think about how great it will be the second time.”
She also promised that Maine supporters of the president would, “see a lot more Trumps around Maine.”
Jackie Tierney of Old Orchard Beach said she came out to show her support for the president.
“I just think he’s one of us. He’s worked all his life and hasn’t lived off the taxpayers,” Tierney said. “I just think he’s done wonders for this country. And here’s a good one, I’m a registered Democrat and have been all my life, and I’m just enthused about all of this.”
Also arriving with Lara Trump on the pink tour bus were Mercedes Schlapp and Katrina Pierson, senior campaign advisers; Pam Bondi, national co-chair of Women for Trump and a former Florida attorney general; and Demi Kouzounas, chairwoman of the Maine Republican Party.
The tour comes as Trump’s support among female voters, especially white women, continues to sag in national polls. While Trump’s 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, carried the vote among all women, post election data compiled by the New York Times showed that Trump carried 51 to 55 percent of the vote among white females, with his strongest support coming from female voters who did not hold college degrees.

But some of the most recent polling, including a July 15 poll by Quinnipiac University, suggests female voters, including white women, now far prefer Trump’s Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden. The recent Quinnipiac poll suggests 59 percent of female voters would pick Biden over Trump while 55 percent of white female voters prefer Biden as well. The gap between Trump and Biden among women is far wider than the gap between the candidates among all voters, where in recent weeks Biden has led the president by between 9 and 15 points.
Women in the gathering made up roughly 50 to 60 percent of the crowd and most wore facial coverings, many bearing Trump campaign insignias. Lara Trump, who didn’t wear a mask outside, put one on before heading into the restaurant for the event, which was closed to the media.
She said wearing a mask was recommended and she did so whenever she was inside and couldn’t social distance, but added, “Our stance is that this is a free country, we, of course, encourage people to wear a mask, but if you don’t think that is something you want to do, obviously that is your own choice.”
“I can’t wait to talk to people about promises made and promises kept by Donald Trump,” she said. “He kept almost all of his promises that he made in 2016 and a lot of them are in the works currently, if they haven’t already been completed.”
She said she believed the economy would remain a “big focus” for people.

She also defended Trump’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, echoing talking points the president has made about shutting down travel from China and on the U.S. not experiencing a shortage of life-saving ventilators, needed for some of the hardest hit COVID-19 patients.
“Look, there was never a time that any person in this country that needed a ventilator, went without a ventilator,” Lara Trump said.
Heidi Field, who said she lived locally, was excited to see Lara Trump Thursday.
“I support most of his policies,” Field said. “He’s for the people, he’s the people’s president.”
Before entering the restaurant Wednesday, Kouzounas also addressed the crowd briefly, urging them to give their business to the Old Orchard eatery. “We need to support Jimmy the Greek,” she said. “He helped make this happen today.”

Earlier Wednesday, the Maine Democratic Party held a virtual round-table discussion with state party Chairwoman Kathleen Marra, Sen. Cathy Breen, D-Falmouth, and Rep. Lois Reckitt, D-South Portland, to highlight the ways the president has broken his promises to women in the U.S. during his term in office.
Breen detailed myriad areas where Trump had disappointed and let down Maine women, from his opposition to the Affordable Care Act to his poor response in preparing the nation for the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Breen called Trump’s slow response to the virus “a complete and utter dereliction of duty.”
She also said Trump’s nominees to federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, were opponents to reproductive rights, and women in Maine are concerned that could lead to the court overturning a women’s right to reproductive health care, including abortions.
“Before he entered office, Trump repeatedly promised that he would ‘do more for women than anybody else’ and look out for their reproductive health and their personal safety,” Marra said. “Over the course of the last three and a half years, Trump has repeatedly broken that promise. His policies on health care, reproductive rights, workplace issues and sexual assault are a disaster for women.”
After the tour bus left, about a dozen protesters still lined the street across from the restaurant, holding anti-Trump signs, including one that said, “fire the liar.”

THE AKAN Copied from the book, Reality as Myth by Onyeji Nnaji . The influence of the Akan on their content nations lies on their population and commonwealth of their brother nations. The Akan are one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa. Their population is scattered across West Africa and beyond. Among this huge population of the Akan, the Ghanaians are more popular, perhaps because of the political influence of the Ashanti Empire in the area. Not much is heard or known about other Akan settlements like the Akwamu, the Akyem , the Akuapem, the Denkyira, the Abron, the Aowin, the Ahanta, the Anyi, the Baoule, the Chokosi, the Fante, the Kwahu, the Sefwi, the Ahafo, the Assin, the Evalue, the Wassa the Adjukru, the Akye, the Alladian, the Attie,the M'Bato, the Abidji, the Avikam,the Avatime the Ebrie,
Copied from the Book; " Reality as Myth " by Onyeji Nnaji The beauty of the discovering of the Radar Rivers and their channels is that it disproves the western hegemonic claim of the Euphrates valley being the position of the birth of the great river, all the points that opposed their claims notwithstanding. Even God himself was very perfect in His creation by placing them in their positions, hierarchically, according to their birth. The first river that flowed located the Havilah land where there are good quality gold, bdellium and fine onyx stones. Pison was the oldest of the rivers and it flowed through the land of the southern Africa. The second river flowed northward to Ethiopia. It was when Africa had been overtaken by virtue of her proximity to the Great Water that other parts of the world began to encounter the remaining river; remarkable with Hiddekel.

This thing has happened for over three times. Each time we brought a new salesgirl, the girl would stay for two or three months; and suddenly she would end her contract with us. In all these, my husband did not know. So, being that the girls usually stole money and other items, the reason for their departure became genuine, thus: they ran away to avoid being punished for their actions. But behind this, the underlying truth is that the girls had been embarrassed by my neighbour who would warn them to leave her loosed husband. Re
Copied from the book, Reality as Myths by Onyeji Nnaji T he world of the Bantu travellers shows the walls of the migration that recorded the highest population among the African settlement. Originating from the largest population among the four races that settled in the east before time, all Bantu travellers were pygmies; for that was the nature of the Umudiala, the generation that gave birth to them. Bantu migration was rated the third earliest migration of the Negro race from the east. In this regard, all their movement had involved great population of people compared to the number of people involved in the two earlier populations that gave birth to Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt: the Walker Traveller, and the Race of Anu. Bantu population as we have identified in the third chapter above outweighs the rest of the population of the ancient fathers that founded many of the nations of antiquity mentioned earlier. Discussing them in beat will pose a little challenge since
T he name Nkalaha is a coinage which stands for a people occupying a geographical land and regional setting in the eastern part of Nigeria. It is a coinage which attempts to explain the direction of movement and adventure of the men who founded the community in the 15th century AD. According to oral sources and some documentation about this community, some of these men were believed to have traveled from Ida, old Benue state of Nigeria to inhabit the land. These men had traveled on different days to locate the place. Onojah who originally founded the land was said to have been in a deep search for a place of safety as he was besieged by a fate that appeared to make him somewhat incompatible with his own people. Nkalaha is one of the communities that make up Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Nkalaha occupied the northern part of Ishielu Local Government Area. She is located through the zip 135.031.000. The community sits on 923.768km 2 . She shares boundaries
The Mystery of Number, “Five” in the Igbo Cosmology. From: Aspects of the Ancient African Metaphysics; Chapter: Seven; Topic: Igbo Geometries and the Metaphysics of Numbers. Author: Onyeji Nnaji. I n the Igbo cosmology, the word Isee is a definite symbolic word as revealed through the Igbo language and culture. A human being has five fingers, five toes. The hands and feet are fundamentals to the survival in life as they are necessary in ensuring that man moves to places where he gets food and grapples on the food to sustain his life. To this view, the rhetoric that binds vocatives in the form of incantation (anchoring on the heart-lock: four ) and the concomitant reprisal in the manner of affirmation that holds the human life bind to his original spiritual person, therefore defining existence and essences are unified by the corresponding echo: Isee!!!!! Therefore it stands that anytime a prayer is said in the Igbo land, the attendants who would want the fulfillment of the
INTRODUCTION One thing that made Udi remarkable is the indubitable legacy adopted in commemoration of the legendry fighter, Uto at Nsude. It was one of the greatest contributions of the descendants of Agbaja to the survival of Nsukka civilization of memory. Uto held from Oshie. Uto dies of small pox after a mercenary battle he was hired to fight in the ancient Benin. His body was buried in the evil forest as the tradition demanded. Although he lived no longer, the stepped pyramids above were adopted to commemorate the lasting peace he brought to the entire Oshie and Udi nation of people. Another remarkable thing about Udi is the fertility of the land. This has contributed widely in sustaining the inhabitants and provided a name for the inhabitants in the manner of Abakaliki, Umudike, Ogbaru, Igboariam, Ohaji, Uzouwani, etc., especially in Amofia-Agu, Affa. Udi is a land of great rivers and springs: Adaada, Ajali, Oji, Aria, Nvenu, Ngene Evu, Iyi Ububo, etc. as was the situ
There are four generations…, and the fourth generation, which is the most exalted, is kingless and perfect. These people will enter the holy place of their Father and they will reside in rest … They are kings. They are the immortal within the mortal ( The Nag Hammadi, 219 ) Also read Nsukka Civilization: The Peopling of Ancient Nsukka One of the African homes that colonialism has completely deformed beyond certain level of recognition is Nsukka. Colonialism apart, the most affecting factor to the survival of the meaning which the rich cultural enclave, Nsukka, carries will best be blamed on postcolonial political structure. The biggest harm all these have against Nsukka as a people is that they rubbed her of the meaning of her name; their place of origin; how their fathers managed to come into their present abodes and who their ancestors were. A profound understanding of the excerpt above will open the door towards deciphering the meaning and origin of the people call
by Onyeji Nnaji Eha-Amufu road newly constructed by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state in 2019 A part from the strategic location of the Federal College of Education, one central reason remarkable about Eha-Amufu is her central position and her boundary situation. Eha-Amufu stands at the centre of many communities; as a result she has served as the gateway to different communities. She is bounded to Nkalaha, Agala, Ikem, Umuero and other communities, including Obeagu (pronounced Ubegu). Aside from that, Eha-Amufu embodies the route that traces the way to the northern part of Nigeria for travellers travelling from Ebonyi axis. Eha-Amufu also forms the remarkable boundary community between Enugu State and Ebonyi State. This situation makes Eha-Amufu very strategic in the discussion of the road and rivers across Ebonyi and Enugu. In the era when transportation on rail was the order of the day, the most popular then ‘Express Train and la
