Fire From The Heartland: Just the Beginning

September 25th, 2010 | By Sonnie

The first-ever film to tell the entire story of the conservative woman in her own words, “Fire from the Heartland” is a powerful statement about America at a crossroads and the women who have awakened to the crisis. With role models such as Clare Boothe Luce, Margaret Thatcher, and Phyllis Schlafly as inspiration, these women are the unintended consequence of the liberal feminist movement.

Tracing the long history of the many conservative women who have been the backbone of this great nation, from the founding mothers of our Republic to today’s “Mama Grizzlies,” this powerful and compelling documentary honors the self-made American woman.

Activists, politicians and commentators such as Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, S.E. Cupp, Dana Loesch, Michelle Easton, Sonnie Johnson, Jenny Beth Martin, Michelle Moore, Jamie Radtke, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, and Congresswomen Cynthia Lummis, Jean Schmidt, and Michele Bachmann share their emotional stories of hardship and triumph in their fight for freedom. These women leaders are fanning the flames of liberty across the nation.

Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by David N. Bossie, the team that made the critically acclaimed film “Generation Zero” that focused on the financial meltdown and the rise of the Tea Party, “Fire from the Heartland” is a must-see for every citizen concerned with the direction of our country and will stir a fire in the hearts of all Americans.

WOW! That’s all I can say. Okay, let’s start at the beginning…..

Back in June I was interviewed by Citizen United for an upcoming documentary, Fire from the Heartland.  It was quite the experience.  I don’t wear make-up and here was a woman painting my face.  I’ve never been in front of a camera before but here all lens were on me.  I’ve always been willing to share my testimony but here I was recording it for all the world to see.

It turned out to be a wonderful experience.   Tien Pasco and Stephan Bannon were awesome and once we got rolling I had so much fun.  In my biased opinion, it showed in the film.  Beautifully shot and threaded together, I felt empowered surrounded by so many strong women.

My empowerment quickly turned to humility and reassurance in God’s purpose for me.  When I was invited to speak in Roanoke back in April, I had no idea a directors sister was in the audience.  When I finished the speech, I had no idea she got right on the phone with her brother who works at Citizens United and told him about me.  When I confirmed the interview, I didn’t understand the new Conservative movement was under the leadership of women who knew pain and struggle but found strength in God, Country, Family, and Principles.

Fire From the Heartland is film every American who loves this Country needs to see.

With Racism as the main charge against the Tea Party, Americans tend to overlook the big picture.  It’s not about race, it’s about true representation.  The Elite, of both parties, don’t understand what it’s like to have to file bankruptcy and clean other peoples houses like Jenny Beth Martin.   How could they possibly understand what it’s like to work and save for three years for a pair of contact lens like Michelle Bauchman?  Can they really understand Deneen Borelli’s endless fight?

And that’s why Women in the Tea Party are joining the ranks of Phyllis Schlafly, Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulture, and S.E. Cupp as the true conservatives in America.  This isn’t a fight any of us wanted but it is a fight we will wage none the less.  Fire from the Heartland is just a preview.
