GOP Headquarters Open in Malibu

The HQ is run by the Malibu Bel Air Republican Women Federated (MBA/RWF).

The GOP officially opened their headquarters last week with a large crowd.

The group gathered on the patio outside its offices at 21323 Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The HQ is run by the Malibu Bel Air Republican Women Federated (MBA/RWF). 

The guests enjoyed wine tasting by Dr. Serena Friedman who shared a selection of red wines from Four Sisters Winery.

Todd Zink, candidate for State Senate, serving the district that includes Malibu addressed the crowd. Zink an active-duty United States Marine and Deputy LA County District Attorney shared his vision for bringing common sense and a true spirit of public service to a broken, splintered Sacramento.

He outlined his plans to improve the current conditions and his strategy for the future. Zink pledged to address the issues of overcrowded county prisons, persistent unemployment, and California’s failing schools.

Gary Aminoff, First Vice Chairman of the Republican Party of Los Angeles gave an overview of the 11 propositions that qualified for the November ballot.

“Many voters vote without knowing facts and the consequences greatly affect and impact our lives,” said Susanne Reyto, president of the MBA/RWF.

The club will continue to offer information to educate the voters as, “some of the propositions have clauses which stipulate no changes for many years after they are implemented,” Reyto said.

Keith McCowen, candidate for State Assembly in the 54th District addressed the group too. He shared some practical ideas which included less waste and smaller government and pledged to grow jobs in California if elected.

“We achieved our goal for the evening and were thrilled with the turnout,” said Bonnie Coleman, Chairman of the HQ. 

The headquarters will be open and run by volunteers from 12 to 7 p.m. on week days and from 12 to 5 p.m. on the weekends. 

Volunteers are needed and can contact Bonnie at malibonn@msn.com.

Mark J. I am voting for mitt romney and Paul Ryan because I drank the cool aide of hope and change from Obama four years ago. He has done a horrible job and has spent money that we don't have. China has been very generous to the USA. We do need two business men in the white house. It is time to get our financial house in order and this will be difficult for us all. However if we don't take the necessary steps then our country will become WEAK, we will be unable to continue to be a world leader, and our humanitarian efforts will be greatly diminished. The world cannot and should not have a WEAK USA.

You don't know what you're talking about. We have the right to say what we want in this country and make movies we want-even if they offend people. How many anti-Christian movies have been made? I don't think Obama's a Muslim (but I'm not sure)-but his policies of appeasement are failing. He is weak and we aren't protected any where in the world. Don't tell me where to get my news. You don't know anything about me, but it's a typical liberal message. Emotions and name-calling and nothing else. You obviously are worried about your abortion rights. Sweetie, that's a state's right issue. And even so, those concerns will take a back seat if you have to start wearing a burka. Think I'm being drastic? Well, ask yourself if you ever thought you'd see the day when our enemies could burn our flag, kill our people, and we apologize for hurting their feelings and then harass the "bad guy"-the guy who made a film. One more thing, he went to Harvard law. So what? What does that mean? Nothing bad comes out of Harvard? Or there aren't any Muslims at Harvard? Wrong. Why don't you do a little studying and see how much our freedoms are being eroded under this president and then come back so we can talk!

Pam - You are absolutely right. Most people criticizing Republicans or Democrats standing against Sharia Law have not done any research including reading their own words in the koran. Dalia Mogahed, Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs says : “Sharia is not well understood and Islam as a faith is not well understood.” Oh really!? Well some people have done their homework and checked out the source and they really know what they're talking about. Women are saying they don't want to give up their rights under Republican governing. These women need to get informed. It is an absolutely lie. Under this spineless, Muslim terrorist-Shariah-bowing president, women will have no rights. That's why Hillary Clinton has no power when she goes to these countries to do her job. They don't acknowledge women and that's why obama did not take his preceious michelle to Turkey. Obama doesn't even resemble any kind of Christian faith. He never fails to apologize for America and its patriots. Most critics will never do the research, but will talk to peers and are too lazy to get to the facts. Debating is great only people really know what they're talking about. This is a critical time when both parties need to be informed, study the Constitution and get your head out or your ____. Hilldale College has an online Constitution course that is free. I encourage everyone to take it. The attempt to discredit our Constitution and our rights will shock you!

Lorelei -- hate to break the news to you -- Obama is muslim. My source was close to the shah of iran. When obama bowed to saudi king he was bowing in reverence to the king's foremost title. The highest title saudi king hold is "Guardian of Mecca". It recognized as the highest title known to muslims. Don't believe me -- I challenge you to dig it out for yourself. I always check my sources. BTW, obama is the least transparent president. Transparency meant us not him. There is a difference between hate and righteous indignation to protect our Constitutional rights. I remember a time when we could all disagree on politics and it would be a civilized discussion. At this time in history the liberals who claim to be so tolerant are the most intolerant people I know. They can disagree with an issue, but it now takes on personal attacks. Stop drinking the kool-aid. Just for the record get used to calling the president -- Mitt Romney.

Niles you're probably right on their stand on Israel. We need to stand with Israel. I am amazed this guy in the White House parties on the boob tube and doesn't have time to see Netanyahu or the other Israeli leaders. Heck, he was too busy on The View and did not even set up meetings with world leaders at the Clinton Summit, even though the world's on fire. Today I read in L.A. Times that he has not had the proper time to practice for his debates because he is soooo busy with world events. Really? Like the Letterman show. He is not naive -- just so incompetent and blinded by his own vanity. He's never met a mirror he didn't like!
