Featured Speaker:  Bruce Sievers  
Bruce Sievers Proud to be an American
Bruce Sievers will talk about America.  His presentation is called An American in Love with his Country.

He has been invited to the White House to present his program for Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George Bush.  President Ronald Reagan, along with the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, awarded him the George Washington Medal of Honor for his presentation entitled "An American in Love with his Country."

He is an author who has published five books and has just completed a screenplay.  He was a green beret in the Army and is a devoted husband and father of five boys.  All this he has accomplished by his unabashed advocacy of a single theme....the joy of being an American.
Austin Dragon - Whats at Stake:
Austin Dragon GOP Disunity only equals another President Clinton. 

Austin Dragon, President of the Southern California Republican Club will talk to us about what is going on in the Republican Party and what we can do about it to unify the party for the 2008 election campaign.  Topics include:
  • Suicidal behavior of our President and other GOP Leaders
  • The justified anger of the GOP Base
  • The unjustified abandonment of the Party by some of the GOP base
  • Talk doesn't equal solutions
  • Worst case: Another Clinton slithers into the White House.

Western CPAC Conference
 October 12-13, Newport Beach
Western CPAC has confirmed the dates and location for a conference to help educate and renew conservative advocacy in the Western states, especially California. Our conference will have a special theme of "Preserving the Reagan Legacy," and we are delighted that radio talk show host Michael Reagan has agreed to serve as General Chairman of this year's Western CPAC! Especially given the public policy issues to be raised during California's new early presidential primary in February, 2008, we expect an exciting time ahead for public policy organizations and advocates on the West Coast.

Western CPAC does not endorse candidates for office. However, all the GOP candidates for president will be invited to speak and will be featured at either one of the two evening banquets or the Saturday luncheon, and at non-meal Saturday "breakout" sessions as time allows.

There are only 600 people who will be able to attend.  This is the western version of the CPAC conference which took place a couple of months ago in Washington, DC.  I encourage you to make your reservation early, or they may be sold out.  Go the Western CPAC web site to make your reservation.

We will have another great meeting of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club on Tuesday, July 3rd.  I look forward to seeing all of you there.
