About

John Woodard spent 50 years in the Independent Insurance Claims business working for a variety of Adjusting Companies who provided personnel to Insurance Carriers who were faced with a sudden overload of claims. He started in this field right out of active duty military service. Over the years he relocated his family, through promotional opportunities, eventually leading to an Executive level position with a National Firm. When Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida, John seized upon the opportunity to start his own business and spent 6 months in Miami. While there, he developed a reputation for providing quality completion of the claims that were assigned to him. Therefore, as the word spread, his services were requested by various insurance companies which required travel all over the country. After several years, he decided to get off the road and start his own company in his home town of Norfolk, Va. This experience proved to be very lucrative and along the way he became President of the Hampton Roads Claims Associate for 2 terms of 1 year each. He closed his business and retired after Hurricane Floyd and relocated to NE North Carolina where he became very active in Republican Politics.

When with the National Firm, John held a number of positions including Assistant Vice Pres of Operations with overall management responsibility for 5 states and 25 branch offices. He was promoted to RVP of National Accounts Sales while continuing to hold his job in Operations responsibilities The company wanted to expand their business presence in the New York market. He was assigned the responsibility to hire the necessary personnel and make it profitable. He took sole responsibility for the development of this new product which was Ocean Marine Cargo Surveying. In a span of 2 years, this product line was generating over $1mill in revenue and expanded to 9 offices from coast to coast. Although this business was Nationwide, in nature, the center of the Cargo Insurance Business was based in New York City. While working in the New York area, he met and became best friends with Robert P.J. Booher, Managing Director of Marsh and McLennan Inc, the largest insurance broker in the world with 65,000 employees worldwide. When 911 occurred, Bob called John because he had lost his entire NY claims staff in the South Tower. He asked him to come to NY and help him with the claims and their aftermath. Unfortunately, he was committed to his Virginia customers and could not break away. Also, in his past travels, he became close friends with David North who was VP at Johnson and Higgins in Chicago and later relocated to Memphis as President of Sedgwick Insurance Inc.

Since retiring he has been very active in NC Republican Party circles. He has written numerous articles for a weekly newspaper and started a Podcast known as The John Woodard Show. Later he started an online news service known as Real American News Network. The object of these companies was to shed light on political issues at the State and National level and elect candidates who will follow the constitution.

At this point in his life John's objective is to make every effort to stop the advance of socialism by all means necessary. To that end, he wants to expose political corruption and to pursue bad policies that threaten the survival of our country.

It may be self evident that John has had a varied career and a variety of opportunities. Hopefully, when he finally retires for good, the memories of some of the people he helped will be the determining factor upon which he will be judged.

There are good citizens and concerned parents (of both races) across the state who are fanatically opposed to CRT being taught in the school system - a school system to which they pay taxes.

There is no underlying logic to drive this effort to vaccinate everyone, but it is the US where we have this unique vaccine-exclusive strategy. It's unprecedented and it's costing hundreds of thousands of lives.

Only the most delusional person would even try to say that Biden's Afghanistan surrender was anything but a colossal failure. Even most liberal news networks haven't defended this.
