The Candidate's Familial Background: The Key Lens for Foreign Policy Analyses.

1.     Allow me to provide you with additional information about my background and family structure. During my tenure as an employee at a hospital in California, I acquired valuable experience in safeguarding public health. As part of our hospital's protocols, all staff members underwent comprehensive training to respond to potential disease outbreaks. Moreover, in line with the Department of Justice (DOJ) data and records, a significant number of dedicated employees actively participated in pandemic preparedness programs and religious initiatives. Through these experiences, we have gained profound insights into the far-reaching impact of health crises on communities. This understanding has cultivated my belief in the importance of federal-level policies that both support healthcare professionals and ensure the safety of our citizens.


2.     The candidate’s campaign advocates for all women of different races, culture, and ethnicity which serves as a reminder of the United States History, Cultural Diversity, Religious beliefs, Biographies of Black African Americans among who is the first female black African American lawyer- Charlotte Ray. Charlotte Ray is the first female African America Lawyer in the United States. She studied law and graduated from Howard University in 1872. Her admission to the District of Columbia bar made her the first woman admitted to practice in the District of Columbia. Later she married a man with the surname of Fraim. Throughout the 19th century and into the present day, numerous remarkable individuals, including women, have made significant contributions to the government, despite facing challenges such as extreme religious backgrounds, extremism, and criminal histories of relatives. Their accomplishments serve as a testament to the power of personal growth, redemption, and the belief in second chances. In many countries, women have served in various government roles. Their dedication and perseverance have played a vital role in shaping policies and advocating for the rights and welfare of citizens. Despite their diverse backgrounds, which may include extreme religious beliefs, past involvement in extremism, or even criminal records of other family members, these individuals have risen above their circumstances to positively impact their respective societies. It is important to note that the acceptance and inclusion of individuals with diverse backgrounds in government is a testament to the principles of democracy, equality, and justice. The recognition that personal growth and redemption are possible allows for the development of a more inclusive and representative government that reflects the rich tapestry of society. By providing opportunities for individuals from all walks of life, regardless of their past or personal beliefs, governments foster an environment that encourages growth, learning, and the pursuit of public service. Through their contributions, these remarkable individuals help shape policies, enact meaningful change, and inspire future generations to overcome adversity and strive for a better society. While the specific examples of individuals who have served the government with extreme religious backgrounds, involvement in extremism, and or family criminal records may vary from country to country and era to era, their collective stories serve as a reminder that greatness can emerge from unexpected places. It is through recognizing the potential for transformation and embracing the principles of fairness and inclusivity that governments can truly harness the full spectrum of talent and dedication available to them.


3.     On the other hand, Nellie Ross who refused to campaign, was elected governor of the state of Wyoming in 1924. She became the first female governor in the history of the United States. Getting a deeper sense of where someone comes from and their familial background can really help paint a clearer picture. The maternal family lineage from which the candidate hail is an expansive one, encompassing a population larger than that of an entire village. This family refer to themselves as the “Eze descendants” acknowledging their shared ancestry and the deep connections that bind them together. Within the Eze family, the understanding is that by virtue of their shared ancestry, which may span many generations or even centuries, they are all considered relatives. The interpretation within the Eze family is grounded in the belief that shared ancestry forms a foundation for familial ties, even if the specific connections may be difficult to trace or quantify. Rather than limiting their sense of family solely to immediate relationships, they embrace the broader notion of an extended family network, united by a common heritage. In this expansive family framework, the emphasis lies not on rigidly defining relationships through strict genealogical lines, but on the recognition of a shared ancestral bond that unites them all. It is a celebration of the interconnectedness and shared history that has shaped their collective identity as “Eze descendants”. Thus, the Eze family finds strength and belonging in the notion of being part of a larger familial community, transcending traditional definitions and embracing the richness of their shared heritage. This understanding fosters a deep sense of unity, fostering love and respect among family members and reinforcing the importance of coming together as a cohesive and supportive collective. In the tapestry of the Eze family's story, the threads of shared ancestry and the interconnectedness of their lives weave a narrative of strength, resilience, and a profound sense of belonging. It is within this framework that the Eze descendants find their place, cherishing the ties that bind them and celebrating the vastness of their family community.

However, it is important to note that from a business standpoint, many policies are structured to not address the unique dynamics of various family configurations. Hence, these policies may not explicitly account for relationships that extend beyond the boundaries of the traditional family unit. There are limitations regarding diverse relationships and family dynamisms.

While there are certain areas of overlap in terms of foreign policy stances, the candidate’s family structure differs slightly from that of Governor Nellies Ross. The candidate's family structure can be likened to many other strong women leaders who have represented constituents from Wyoming or San Francisco. Many of these women have been a source of inspiration for women around the world. Through their groundbreaking achievements and impactful leadership, they have paved ways for other women to pursue careers in politics and public office. Despite the candidate's family may differ from Governor Nellie Ross, it is possible to find commonalities with other strong women successors and leaders who have represented constituents from Wyoming or San Francisco. These similarities can provide insights into the candidate's potential approach to foreign policy.

  On this note, there have been significant changes and debates surrounding Surveillance laws and the reauthorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in the United States. The balance between national security and individual privacy has been at the forefront of discussions. Striking the right balance between security and privacy remains a complex challenge for lawmakers and the society as a whole.

Additionally, my opponents may also have raised these foreign policy issues against me as a candidate running for U.S. Congress that was addressed in the my “Shades of Ideology: Unraveling Africa’s Political Tapestry in the Realm of foreign Policy” article. Drawing parallels from that ideological framework described in the Shades of Ideology Article, I, the candidate, come from a family that belong to the CATEGORY of Extreme Leftism.


4.     I am a daughter of an immigrant father who has been deceased since 2009 and a first generation Nigerian African American. Together as The Ekpete family, we are a family of four sisters and six brothers, forming a diverse and close-knit unit. Our family dynamic is unique, as we have the privilege of having three parents who have nurtured and supported us throughout our lives. Down to my personal family, The Kamas, I am the custodial parent and biological mother of my three kids and one grown young adult. To confirm that I am an upstanding citizen, I diligently fulfill my civic responsibilities by paying my taxes on an annual basis. Furthermore, I consistently abide by all relevant tax laws and regulations, ensuring compliance with my tax obligations. For tax purposes, the candidate’s “non-custodial or custodial children”, in quote, {as defined in Title 26 U.S. Code § 152(e) (4) (a) & (b), Title 26 U.S. Code § 152 (c)}who had not attained the age of seventeen is her qualifying children due to the issue of “residence of the other parent”. In addition, the qualifying children receives multiple support from both parents during each tax year however, if the candidate/taxpayer (myself) were to be treated as a non-custodial parent, Title 26 U.S. Code § 152 (e) (3) (ii) Dependent Defined: The Special Rule for Divorced Parents: Exception for Certain pre-1985 Instrument applies. The candidate met the requirements for the exception of certain pre-1985 instrument having provided at least $600 for the support of her child or children during such calendar tax year. Hence, qualifies by default as a taxpayer to claim child tax credit of her dependents.
