After delays due to weather and logistics the San Juan County Republic Party Central Committee met on Feb 23, 2019 in Friday Harbor. The scene at the China Pearl was active with discussion and getting to know each other. Being spread among islands the PCOs and other officers of the Executive Committee do not get the “FaceTime” to build rapport but meetings like these help us get up to speed.
Here is your Central Committee:
During the meeting we established By-Laws, received a report from the State from State Committeewoman Cindy Carter, learned about how to handle Exempt and Non-Exempt and the importance of Public Disclosure law from our Treasure Kelley Unger. Rick Boucher talked about communications and the website. We received an update on Herb Meyer’s status form Daniel Schwartz and Minnie Kynch.
We scheduled a planing meeting for March 16th and discussed our Lincoln Day Dinner (LDD) plans.
If you have any questions about the meeting please ask. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are member of the Central Committee and were unable to attend we will get you a copy of the minutes when they are available.
Trump in 2020!

Herb Meyer served during the Reagan Administration as Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council. In these positions, he managed production of the US National Intelligence Estimates and other top-secret projections for the President and his national security advisers. Mr. Meyer is widely credited with being the first senior US Government official to forecast the collapse of the Soviet Union — a forecast for which he later was awarded the US National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, which is the Intelligence Community’s highest honor.
Mr. Meyer is host and producer of The Siege of Western Civilization, a DVD outlining the threats to our security, our economy, and our culture that became an international best-seller. Formerly an associate editor of FORTUNE, he has authored several books including Real-World Intelligence and Hard Thinking. His essays on intelligence and politics have been published in The Wall Street Journal, National Review Online, Policy Review and The American Thinker. He has been a guest on leading television and radio talk shows.
In recent years, Mr. Meyer has been a popular speaker on the lecture circuit. He delivers his overview of global trends and developments, entitled What in the World is Going On: A Global Intelligence Briefing to corporations, business associations, student organizations and public affairs groups throughout the world.
Site Editor Note: Herb Myer, who resides on San Juan Island, was the main speaker during the 2017 Lincoln Day Dinners for the San Juan County Republican Party. Herb is a wonderfully engaging speaker with a profound knowledge and insight into the inner workings of our Demorcatic Republic.
This Fall Herb was found unconscious off his bike on one of the country roads of San Juan Island. Herb, and his wife Jill, need all our prayers as they continue to deal with this medical issue.
The Land and Water Conservation Fund Would Disappear Under the Green New Deal.
” ….. Why would the LWCF be in jeopardy again? It’s funded by royalties from offshore oil and gas leasing deals on the Outer Continental Shelf that energy companies pay to the federal government. Annually, the LWCF Act authorizes this fund $900 million each year. However, only a small amount is appropriated by Congress. For every dollar invested in land acquisition through the LWCF, there is a four dollar return in economic value.
If the U.S. were to shift from reliance on natural gas, coal, gas, LNG, and other traditional energy sources to complete dependence on renewables, you could kiss this fund goodbye. Since 88 percent of the traditional economy would be wiped out by the Green New Deal’s plan to go 100 percent renewable by 2030, LWCF’s primary funding source would disappear too. …..”
