On November 27th 2022, Barry Donadio a Conservative Republican Politician and Sergeant At Arms of the Maryland Republican Party endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States for the 2024 election.

Donadio said “ I endorse and support President Donald Trump because he has been a great contributor to the safety and security of the United States. Trump has always supported our military, law enforcement and our first responders. He has always put Americans first. All of us before the criminal and he never supported defunding the police.“

“I remember the days during the last Trump administration when food, gasoline and electricity were affordable. I also remember those same days when the United States was respected as the true superpower that was and currently is. We should also remember that under Trumps last presidency, there were no new wars and no humiliating cases of retreat by U.S. armed forces.

Donadio said: “ Trump is our best choice for President and he has a proven track record of rejuvenating the U.S. economy so that all Americans can prosper.”

“President Trump will continue to protect the second amendment. He will not blame every instance of violence seen on tv on our gun rights.”

“ We need to revisit talks with North Korea. To not be talking to them is really counterproductive to world peace. Trump received not one ounce of credit for meeting with the leader of North Korea. Now, we see the value of those talks in the past with North Korea launching missile tests on a constant basis. Trump is the man to bring the U.S. back to talking with some of our opponents and resolving our differences.”

“Vote Trump in 2024″ says Donadio

The books release has not been properly celebrated with a book release because of the Pandemic until now.

Since then, he has been busy when he entered politics and by leading his private security firm. He has also sanctioned himself as an advocate for military veterans, first responders and he is vocal with his support of the second amendment.

TWA Flight 800 First Responder Witness Account

Donadio’s book is the only book on the market that was written by someone who was actually at the scene of the crash of TWA Flight 800 on July 17th, 1996. Barry Donadio was one of the first responding Emergency Medical Technicians that responding to the disaster. Never before released witness account of the events that unfolded on the night of July 17th, 1996.

He was a 25-year-old Emergency Medical Technician that responded to the TWA Flight 800 Crash. He was a member of the local East Moriches, New York Ambulance that responded to the disaster on that fateful evening.

The interesting fact is that Barry Donadio was also employed as a USAF Security Police Officer at the same military base that some circles blame for shooting down the plane (The 106th Rescue Wing at Gabreski ANG Base, Westhampton Beach, NY). He later became a USAF Security Police Investigator at that same unit.

In 2002, he obtained a position in the United States Secret Service at the White House. He served the Bush and Obama administrations.

This account offers a look inside the Coast Guard Station at East Moriches, where the victims of TWA Flt. 800 were brought that evening. It offers some clues that may support your opinion as to what may have truly happened to the plane and why it may have crashed. Donadio includes in the book many of his experiences as a Firefighter on Long Island leading up to the plane crash.

Descriptions of the some of the victim’s fates are included in the account as well as other interesting anomalies that were observed on that evening. Not for persons under the age of 18 years old.

The witness account has undergone United States Government censorship, but the author documents were in the account that censorships took place.

NOTE: This book does not offer an opinion or theory for the reason why the aircraft crashed. It is written as an impartial witness account.

Donadio’s brilliant new historical fiction book “That Day When Hell Froze Over” takes place over a thousand years ago in present-day Afghanistan and Iran. It is a mystical depiction of warfare of that time with interesting characters. An elite force of newly created catholic knights called the “Spada Furtiva” are created by the Pope. They are ordered by the Pope to drive deep into enemy territory on a secret mission. They are sent as far as modern day Iran. The knights were the best trained and most discipline that the Vatican had at the time. They encounter many dangers along their expedition. The most dangerous thing that they encounter is a small group of females from the region of Afghanistan. The Knights are later forced to battle the dammed of Hell, including Satan himself.

After some setbacks in a battle against Satan’s demons, the Angel Gabriel appears and arms the knights with weapons and the knowledge to use them. Satan becomes gravely concern as his demons begin to fall in numbers at the hand of the Spada Furtiva.

Barry Donadio Endorses Lee Zeldin For New York Governor

Donadio said; “There is only one choice for New York’s next Governor and it is Lee Zeldin. There is no one else that I would trust in this position that would be capable of fixing New York.”

“Lee Zeldin is a proven and true leader that is worthy to be New York’s top political leader” said Donadio.

Donadio went on to say; “I am a native Long Islander and I want a Governor for my home state that leads from the front like Zeldin. He is currently in the military and that means alot to me and many of my New York supporters. It shows that he will get down in the trenches like the rest of us in order to secure our freedoms against all challenges. Zeldin has a proven track record of standing up for the interests of all New Yorkers and he has always put Americans first. His strong support for our police and our military veterans has gone unmatched. I have no doubt that Zeldin will work to correct some of the bizarre and sick anti-police culture that we have experienced recently. With Zeldin, victims will come before criminal offenders do. I am willing to bank on that. I am 100% confident that Zeldin will do what is in the best interest for all New Yorkers regardless of party affiliation.”
