THE REPUBLICAN PARTY OF PALM BEACH COUNTY 
INVITES YOU ABOARD

NORTH PALM BEACH REPUBLICAN CLUB TO HOST CONGRESSMAN RON DeSANTIS
APRIL 30

JUDEO/CHRISTIAN REPUBLICAN CLUB 
FIRST MEETING
MAY 2
Friends,
Thanks to the input of so many of local Republicans regarding the new club that will have its first meeting on May 2nd at 6 PM at the Delray Civic Center on Jog Road, we’re changing its name to more broadly reflect our community. It will be known as the JUDEO/CHRISTIAN REPUBLICAN CLUB.
We will stand for upholding the pro-Constitutional values of the Republican Party together with defending against the efforts of Radical Islamists who are outspokenly determined to erase Judaism and Christianity in order to create a worldwide caliphate.
We will have speakers at this initial meeting discussing what we can do as citizens to awaken our neighbors to this threat to our kids and grandkids. There must be movement to prevent the turmoil now embracing both the Middle East and Europe from reaching our shores. The beheading of Christians, the blowing up of churches and the terror Israelis face each day from Islamic terrorists are messages to us all that we must become more aware and unified to fight this threat to our futures … together. It will be our purpose to stand strong in support of President Trump in his efforts to roll back the dangerous course of Obama which was to weaken us as a nation militarily and economically in order to make us vulnerable to the forces of evil that are spawning around us. Many in our own community are totally unaware of these threats. Our job will be to educate, inform and unite in order to protect us all.
Please try to attend with a friend. Your input and support is needed and necessary for us to continue.
Thanks!
Alan Bergstein

Freedom Works Presentation
Adam Page, Southeast Director
Kathy Hartkopf, Grassroots Coordinator
 
ASSET FORFITURE  & OVER VIEW OF 
FREEDOM WORKS PLANS FOR THE FUTURE.
For over a quarter century, FreedomWorks has identified, educated, and actuated citizens who are enthused about showing up to support free enterprise and constitutionally limited government.
They are not primarily a “think-tank,” content to study the issues and publish papers and reports. FreedomWorks breaks down the barriers between the beltway insiders and grassroots America.
FreedomWorks members know that government goes to those who show up. That’s why they give them the tools to break through the media noise and provide the same access to Washington as the big-moneyed lobbyists.
Preserving liberty depends on all Americans having access to their elected officials-not just special interests. FreedomWorks holds Washington accountable to the citizens that put them in office.
FreedomWorks was originally founded as Citizens for a Sound Economy in 1984. Founded to fight for liberty, they brought together some of the best and brightest minds of the liberty movement. Since then, they’ve expanded their ambitions from a free-market think tank to a service center for the grassroots freedom movement across the whole country.
