With Guest Speaker

Dr. Karen Siegemund

Dr. Karen Siegemund is a scientist and a scholar. She is president and founder of American Freedom Alliance (AFA). Her conferences have featured conservative speakers such as David Horowitz, Trevor Loudon, Maj. Stephen Coughlin, Charlie Kirk, Michael Walsh, Bill Whittle, Victor David Hanson, and other experts discussing the leftist destruction of American liberties. Karen is a frequent guest on radio and television. Mark Levin, Jeanine Piro, Mike Huckabee and others have discussed the fateful AFA conference that led to Karen’s shocking termination from her teaching position in Los Angeles.

In her early career, Dr. Siegemund worked in the field of underwater acoustics, developing new sonar systems and testing them during sea trials around the world. She left nuclear science to pursue a masters and then a doctorate degree. Mensa smart, Dr. Siegemund has taught Latin, French, Greek Studies, Science and Advanced Mathematics at high school and university levels, and the last 4 years at the celebrity Le Lycée School where annual tuition starts at $17,500 and many parents are Hollywood elite.

At the May 2019 AFA conference Karen spoke about Western Civilization. Her offending quote was “Each of us here, believes in the unparalleled force for good that is Western Civilization, that is our heritage, whether we were born here or not.” The leftist thought police found this too damaging a comment; within hours she was fired, her contract not renewed.

Confronting the issue, Dr. Siegemund’s lawsuit is being represented by Attorney Harmeet Dhillon, Republican National Committee Chairwoman that you see frequently on Fox News. Many of us believe this case will eventually go to the Supreme Court.

Karen is the daughter of a man who grew up in Hiltler’s Berlin, who understands how important is freedom; and that tyranny does not begin with a revolution, but with a slow erosion of rights. You will want to hear her story first hand. Bring a friend.

Your Sunshine Chairman is requesting that you keep her informed of any and all occasions that need to be acknowledged by a card. Such things as births, deaths, marriages, health issues, happy and sad, all deserve recognition. If I don't hear from you, someone who could use a bit of cheering up would be overlooked. Let's don't let that happen. Just drop me a line or email me.

Many thanks,
Dodie Bracken
