The 2019 Lincoln Reagan Dinner was a Huge Success
This year’s San Francisco Republican Party Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner, held September 26th at the Italian Athletic Club, was a smash hit by any measure. Almost 250 attendees were delighted by New York Times bestselling author and documentarian Dinesh D’Souza.
The packed room was electric. Mr. D’Souza brought his “A” game, regaling the audience with his hilarious phone call with President Trump. He made the case for America's unique greatness in the world today, and its unique greatness in history.
The night reflected the new, upbeat energy of a revitalized San Francisco Republican Party, a party ready to reassert its voice in a city which desperately needs it.
The SFGOP looks forward to hosting a number of dinners, cocktail hours and informal get-togethers in 2020. If you didn’t make it to this dinner, be sure to join us at one of our next events. You’ll be excited about the future of our party in San Francisco.

Will Impeaching President Trump help Republicans take back the House?
A message from John Dennis, Chairman
In November of 2009 Obamacare was passed in the House along party lines, pushed by then Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In March 2010 President Obama signed the bill into law.
Eight months later the Republicans swung 63 seats in their favor and took back the House. The 2010 election was the largest gain in the House for the Republican Party since 1938.
Voting for Obamacare in the House on party lines was a large, if not overwhelming, factor for the big Republican win by any analysis.
The question now is: has Nancy Pelosi, again Speaker of the House, learned her lesson?
President Trump’s conversation with the president of Ukraine certainly doesn’t rise to the level of impeachment.
Was it a good idea for President Trump to ask the President of Ukraine to talk with Rudy Giuliani, the President’s personal attorney, about a possible corruption investigation into Joe Biden? Probably not.
However, the President wears many hats. He is effectively the law-enforcer-in-chief, given that the Attorney General reports to him.
But “High Crime and Misdemeanors”?
A letter from Speaker Pelosi, warning the President to watch the lines, would seem like a more appropriate response.
Speaker Pelosi is in a tough position. “The Squad”, the newbie congresswomen driving the Democrats deeper into loony left territory, want impeachment. The moderate Democrat house members from congressional districts won by President Trump in 2016 decidedly do not.
If Mrs. Pelosi can’t hold back The Squad, if the Democrats make a partisan vote to impeach, like they voted for Obamacare on party lines ten years ago, the Republicans could win back the House in 2020.
In fact, I’d bet on it.
Oh, and President Trump will win reelection easily. But he’s going to win anyway, no matter what Speaker Pelosi does.
Warning About Antifa’s Escalating Violence Comes True: And It Will Get Worse (Part 2)
by Erin Smith, Deputy Vice Chair of CommunicationsWhen I wrote The Left Escalates Violence as Antifa Arms Themselves (Part 1) in July highlighting the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club in order to illustrate the growing threat of armed antifa affiliates, I was completely frank that it was only a matter of time before they put those tools and skills into use. However even I didn’t expect only a week later, one of their members was shot dead while attempting a terrorist bombing attack on an ICE detention facility in Tacoma, Washington.
