Brandon Straka

Founder, #WalkAway Campaign

The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement, founded by former liberal, Brandon Straka, dedicated to providing a place to share #WalkAway testimonials and personal journeys to freedom. It is inspiring, exciting, heart-wrenching, and extraordinary to watch and read the stories of the individuals who no longer accept the current ideology of the political left, what it has become, and are now bravely sharing their stories with the world.

Some of us left long ago, while many have only recently begun to question the narratives of the left. Some people have wanted to #WalkAway for some time now, but have feared the consequences they may endure from friends or family if they were to #WalkAway.

The #WalkAway Campaign encourages and supports those on the Left to walk away from the divisive tenets endorsed and mandated by the Democratic Party of today. Today’s leftist pseudo-liberalism is more committed to expanding the scope of government and pushing us into collectivism.

The Democratic Party of today has adopted a destructive belief system, separating people into groups based on identity and organizing them into camps of victims and oppressors. If you are a person of color, an LGBT person, a woman, or an American immigrant; the Democratic Party wants you to know that you are a victim and destined to stay that way. #WalkAway is the movement fighting back against Democrat exploitation of minority communities.

The Left has become so extreme and relentless that it is now the time for us to stand up and defend the inherent goodness of America and her people.

The #WalkAway Campaign is a movement of Patriots from all walks of life – men, women, black, brown, white, straight, LGBTQ, religious, and non-believers – who share something very important in common. 

WE ARE ALL AMERICANS, and we will not surrender our country.

Libby, inspiring hundreds of grassroots citizens, statewide, to commit time and treasure to the mission.

Alex’s personal ethos of faith, family, and freedom is contagious, and is his not-so-secret foundation of success, along with an affinity for continuous improvement.

Brigadier General


Blaine “Blaino” Holt

Chief Executive Officer, Alchemai

Brigadier General (ret) Blaine “Blaino” Holt’s hallmark of success is his ability to engineer radical solutions to the most daunting challenges and crises. As a tech startup CEO, innovation thought leader, and future-focused strategist, he delivers long-term value by preparing organizations for order-of-magnitude changes on the horizon. He advises or leads the formation of several emerging tech, cyber and aerospace companies including Xeriant Aerospace and DefendEdge.

Not only is Blaine adept at uncovering both solutions and opportunities that others have missed, but he has a remarkable ability to foster a culture of disruptive thinking, engagement, and collaboration, inspiring stellar performance. A highly effective leader, Blaine has mentored and coached over 30 direct reports who have gone on to senior military and civilian leadership positions.

Blaine’s career trajectory has been anything but conventional.

Although he was spangled in recognition during his early military career, the true test of Blaine’s leadership and strategy formulation came during his time in the Kyrgyz Republic where, as Commander of the U.S. Air Force, he orchestrated the DoD’s most complex logistics operations under extreme socio-political strife.

Leading the logistics of the “Afghan Surge” while restoring the Kyrgyz Republic to stability in the wake of a bloody revolution earned him a Bronze Star and a fellowship to the Council on Foreign Relations.

As a Military Fellow, Blaine became a strategy and innovation thought leader, traveling the world speaking about his extraordinary experience in Kyrgyzstan and participating in high-level diplomacy talks across Asia.

This experience enabled him to build a solid network of the most highly regarded international relations experts while contributing to research in order to influence foreign policy.

Later as one of the top ten logistics leaders in the Department of Defense, he was challenged to ensure defense operations remained unaffected by severe budget cuts. As expected, Blaine delivered. His groundbreaking cost-saving ideas combined with the strategic influence to make them happen were an overwhelming success, earning him designation as “the #1 Strategist and Innovator” by the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe.

Blaine then served as the 2nd-highest ranking U.S. military official at NATO where he represented the U.S. in negotiations with the Alliance, working together with them to develop solid defense solutions during trying times of sociopolitical turmoil.

Eager to build businesses and make a civilian impact, Blaine led a turnaround at Million Air, raising $150mm to restructure and create new revenue sources. He helped get a greenfield aluminum company started in Appalachia raising $275mm for the $1.7bln project.

Today, the General is the CEO of Alchemai; a cutting-edge AI ML company focused on advance tools to repair and harden Fortune 500 supply chains. Blaine remains engaged in coaching entrepreneurs and speaks across the nation on a variety of issues. He is the guest of many podcast interviewers. Two words that sum up this dynamic leader: “High Energy.”

He is an advisor to a handful of tech companies and regularly appears on Newsmax where he is a contributor and writer.
