The Palm Beach North Chamber would like to welcome and recognize our newest members. We are delighted to have each of you as a part of our Chamber family!

Before A Disaster

Hurricane Season Started June 1; Now is the Time to Ensure You Are Storm Ready.

Floridians know all too well that our state’s geographic location increases our propensity for catastrophic weather, and unfortunately, hurricanes mean more than strong winds and rain. Hurricanes also cause Florida’s property insurance marketplace to be far more complex than other states. For years, the Florida Chamber has advocated to better protect Floridians from the financial risk associated with our government-run property insurance entities. We have long-supported protecting families and businesses against “hurricane taxes” and making necessary changes to the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund (Cat Fund). We will continue our efforts to reform Florida’s current property insurance market. In the meantime, we encourage you to be prepared. Take advantage of Florida’s hurricane preparedness sales tax holiday, June 1-7,  to purchase the items that will help protect your family, home and property. Click here for a list of qualifying items.

2019 Prosperity Leadership Program

If you are interested in becoming a member of the 2019 Prosperity Leadership Program, please contact Whitney West at Whitney@PBNChamber.com or 561-746-7111.
The mission of this leadership program is to educate and inform participants about the distinct characteristics that make Palm Beach North Florida’s Prosperity Coast. The program will focus on a prosperous economy, high quality of life, smart and connected region, and regional leadership within the 10 municipalities that make up Palm Beach North. You will attend presentations given by key community leaders and learn more about the diverse civic, economic and social environments within each area. Our goal is to provide a platform where current leaders of our business community will have access to elected officials, top executives and leaders, while becoming immersed, engaged and informed about our region.
Members will become educated on the history of each community, current trends and issues in our economy, as well as the growth and development strategies of each city. Participants will be issued a challenge during their initiation, which they will work collaboratively on addressing throughout the program. The class will then present their solution(s) to the Economic Development Committee and receive feedback regarding the viability of their proposal(s) from private and public stakeholders.

Stay Out of Yemen

Shoshana Bryen and Stephen Bryen  June 6, 2018 • American Thinker

The United States is already militarily involved in Yemen, with special forces targeting al-Qaeda and Islamic State operatives who are then attacked by American drones.  Thus far, however, it has stayed mostly outside the Yemeni civil war, in which Iranian-backed Houthi forces are fighting the Saudi-UAE-supported Yemeni government, although there are reports that Americans are helping locate and destroy ballistic missiles and launch sites that Houthi rebels have used to attack cities in Saudi Arabia.

Why should the United States increase its support for the anti-Houthi faction, particularly lacking any congressional support for additional involvement in Yemen?  The Houthis are not America’s enemy; the enemy is Iran, which declared war on us in 1979 and pursues a variety of strategies to wear us down while it pursues its illicit nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Expanding the American role in Yemen would serve Iran’s strategic interests rather than our own.  The Iranians hope a bigger American footprint in Yemen – along with deployments in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria – will sap American resources, cost lives, sow civil discord, and reduce American prestige.  Iran believes that its stock will rise accordingly.

According to news reports, the UAE has asked for U.S. help in an operation to take control of the port of Hodeidah, Yemen’s fourth-largest city, sitting on the Red Sea near the entrance to the Gulf of Aden.  It is a strategic location for Red Sea shipping and an important stronghold for the Iran-backed Houthi fighters.  The port has played an important role in the delivery of emergency aid supplies to Yemen.  Hodeidah has been bombed on different occasions by Saudi-coalition air forces, and facilities at the port – especially large cranes and dock equipment – have been destroyed.

Yemeni forces, backed by the Arab coalition, have taken control of the tourist resorts in Al Nukhaila in the Al Duraihimi province just west of the rebel-held port city of Al Hodeidah, an operation that killed some 73 Houthi fighters, according to Arab sources.  But it is doubtful that Yemeni anti-Houthi forces can complete a mission to take control of Hodeidah province and its port without outside support.

The UAE (probably speaking for the Saudi government as well) claims to want only American intelligence and the use of drones to complement the Arab mission.  Keeping in mind, however, that neither the UAE nor the Saudis have ever launched a successful land attack, particularly one that requires amphibious landings and air drops, the job will likely require far more from the U.S.  It is only a small jump from there to American involvement in an across-the-board military effort.

While it is true that Iran is supplying missiles and weapons and probably financial support to the Houthi insurgency, as well as operating in Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria, Iranian support for Shi’ite causes is not the most important threat to U.S. security.

Much more important is Iran’s ability to destabilize or gain control of friendly countries in the region, to threaten Israel with ballistic missiles and possibly nuclear weapons, and to threaten Saudi Arabia with annihilation.  Responding to the mess in Yemen is a poor way to deal with these important challenges.

If the United States wants to stop Iran, Yemen is not the best place to do it.  Iran, after all, has nothing much to lose there since, even in the unlikely case that the Houthis are finally defeated (which will be costly), it won’t matter in the big picture.  Iran can use the defeat – of someone else, not itself – as a rallying cry against the “Great Satan,” step up its nuclear and missile programs, and drop the fake posture it is using successfully right now as a “nice guy” in full compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, the “Iran deal”) from which President Trump rightly withdrew.

The best way to deal with Iran is twofold:

  • Support opposition to the Iranian regime in order to destabilize the ruling mullahs.
  • Knock out key Iranian assets either using covert means or through specifically targeted operations.

Neither of these options constitutes American-generated “regime change,” and that’s as it should be.

The place to start is to make an effort to understand the vast store of sensitive intelligence that the Israelis lifted from Iran.  Among other things, documents show that Iran’s military is in charge of refining uranium to 90% (weapons grade) and has been for quite a while.  The military is completely outside the JCPOA, so it should be understood that despite the deal, or alongside the deal, or in subversion of the deal, Iran is and has been making weapons-grade material and probably building its first nuclear weapons.  It continues to seek WMD technology from Germany, among others, and the Iran-North Korea nuclear axis requires a much harder look by the United States and other intelligence agencies.

It is relevant and vitally important to use the Israeli-procured information to develop a real strategy against the mostly hidden and growing threat of a nuclear Islamic Republic – one that got its start long before the JCPOA, continued through it, and continues to this day.

Forget the Houthis.
