There is also information below about two very interesting and timely events that the San Fernando Valley Republican Club is co-sponsoring. 
John Eastman - Featured Speaker
John Eastman
John Eastman
Candidate for California Attorney General

John Eastman is a candidate for California Attorney General. As one of California's foremost legal minds, he has argued cases at the nation's highest courts on core principles of public safety, freedom and constitutional law.
John believes the law exists to protect our basic freedoms, and that California's Attorney General must tirelessly defend those freedoms as well.
First and foremost, this means the freedom to live without fear of violent crime. The Attorney General is California's top law enforcement official, and John Eastman will vigorously pursue the rights of law-abiding citizens and victims over criminals.

The Attorney General is also the People's lawyer, and must zealously defend the people's will and not use this powerful office to promote his own political agenda outside the law.

And lastly but equally important, the Attorney General must always stand for firm constitutional principles such as freedom of religion and speech, property rights, and the rule of law.

Visit John Eastman's web site for his complete biography and other information about his candidacy.

Chuck DeVore - Featured Speaker
Chuck DeVore

A Symposium
Culture of Denial:
Is our Government's Refusal to Admit Reality Harming Our Security?



Maj. Gen. (RET) Paul Vallely,
Stephen Coughlin and J.D. Hayworth

Our government, our judiciary and our military are in denial about some of the most basic threats faced by this country. This includes an unwillingness to recognize that successfully interdicting potential terrorist threats requires squaring the demands of security and civil liberties; the refusal to accept the reality of a home grown Jihadist menace in our midst; the insistence that our military and intelligence services do not need every tool available to them to thwart those pledged to our destruction and the resistance to accepting that it is Islamic teachings that drive terrorists around the world and not poverty nor American policies.

This fascinating panel, featuring a member of Congress, a former member of the military and a former member of the State Department, will offer a very clear perspective on where our government is going wrong in its understanding of the world and what we can do to educate it.

Big Surge In Americans Identifying with Republicans
This just in from CRP...

New Gallup Poll Shows Big Surge in Americans Identifying with the Republican Party.

14% Democrat advantage in party self-identification collapses to just 1%

In new data released this morning, Gallup finds that the substantial advantage Democrats have enjoyed in the number of Americans identifying with a major political party has collapsed.

Americans are turning away from the party in control of both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue: in 2008 53% of Americans identified with the Democratic Party, compared to 46% today.  Meanwhile, Republican strength has surged from a low of 39% in 2008 to 45% today, giving the Democrats just a 1% advantage.

Gallup Poll

The impact of the Republican surge, which can be attributed to large numbers of independent voters aligning with the GOP, is expected to be magnified on Election Day as Republicans historically vote in higher numbers than Democrats.  The Gallup data relates to registered, as opposed to likely, voters.
