President's Message

THE OATH
An oath is defined as a solemn promise, usually calling upon God to witness to “the truth of what one says or to witness that one sincerely intends to do what one says.”  In the case of the President, that oath includes the faithful execution of the law regardless of policy disagreement. The lawmaking powers are delegated to Congress, not the President. Unfortunately, the last President repeatedly ignored his oath of office. He refused to enforce or obey laws he did not like (i.e Defense of Marriage Act was not defended; War Powers Act was violated with Libya invasion; National Surveillance Act violated to spy on Americans and political rivals; the Affordable Care Act implementation was postponed to avoid consequences of a bad law; etc.). It is a sad irony that Democrats are typically the first to lecture the rest of us that “nobody is above the law” as they smoke pot, harbor illegal aliens, and dodge the draft. While the Kennedy family wrote the book on nepotism and sexual scandal, the Clinton family added several more volumes, including a section on buying foreign political influence. We can do better. As Republicans, we will continue to set the example.  We will continue to revere the rule of law, because we understand the meaning of an oath.

May God bless us all.

Featured Speaker
This month's speaker is John Stemberger. John is an Orlando attorney who has been a conservative policy advocate for over 30 years. The title of his presentation is "Against All Enemies: Foreign and Domestic."

A sought after speaker around the country, John Stemberger is also a member of the Council for National Policy . The Council for National Policy brings together the country’s most influential conservative leaders in business, government, politics, religion, and academia to hear and learn from policy experts on a wide range of issues. In a feature article on his work, the Miami Herald called him, “One of the most interesting and influential people you’ve never heard of.” Orlando Magazine named him one of the top 50 most powerful people in Central Florida (2009). In 2018 Florida Trend Magazine named him one of the 500 most influential business leaders in Florida.

In addition to the private practice of law, Stemberger is the President of the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC). Since starting the FFPC he served as Chairman of the campaign to amend Florida’s Constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman which was adopted Florida voters in 2008. He also launched the Florida Judicial Accountability Project and Strong Marriages Florida.

John is also one of the primary founders and now the chairman for Trail Life USA , a Christian scouting movement for boys, which has around 30,000 members in 750 troops, chartered in 48 states.
