Ryan Sorba is currently serving as Chairman of the Young Conservatives of California (YCC). Prior to YCC Ryan served as the Chairman of the California Young Americans for Freedom as well as National Director of Membership and Campus Leadership for the DeVos Freedom Center at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute in Wilmington, Delaware. Ryan recruited 13,876 new members his first year at ISI -more than doubling the Institute's 55 year annual membership recruitment record. In 2009 Ryan participated in the now famous undercover ACORN investigation along with Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe. The investigation led John Boehner to introduce H.R. 3571, the Defund ACORN Act, which was eventually adopted as part of H.R. 3221, the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009. The passage of the bill which defunded ACORN led the organization into bankruptcy. ACORN received more than $53 million in direct funding from the federal government between 1994 and 2009, and has likely received substantially more indirectly through states and localities that receive federal block grants. The investigation was widely acclaimed as a huge victory for tax payers. Originally Glenn Beck mistook Ryan Sorba for "Jim the Acorn Housing Advisor" on FOX News. Ryan was eventually vindicated. In February 2010, fresh off the ACORN investigation Ryan gave his famous CPAC 2010 Speech. During his speech Ryan condemned organizers for bringing the left-wing homosexual activist organization GOProud to the event. Although Ryan was booed by the audience at the time, which was composed largely of Ron Paul supporters, 9/11 Truthers, and anarcho-capitalists -not conservatives, the speech became the catalyst for a movement to remove David Keene as Chairman of the American Conservative Union, the organization which hosts CPAC. The following year Mr. Keene was removed as Chairman for a variety of reasons, including financial mismanagement and controversies surrounding GOProud and Islamists Grover Norquist and Suhail Kahn. Ryan considers Keene's removal as Chair of CPAC as the most important victory he has been a part of during his young career as an activist: "While defunding ACORN was extremely important, removing Keene will change the direction of the Conservative movement for the next 20 years," he says. Pro-family activist and Loudoun County, Virginia Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio had this to say: "Ryan Sorba changed history. He was there first being critical of Grover Norquist and anyone else at CPAC who sold out. He called statist liberals what they were 'statist liberals,' who wanted government power and money, for play at CPAC. He condemned them first. He condemned so-called 'libertarians' who sought broad new federal powers because of their 'sexual orientation.' Against all of them, Sorba stood like a stone wall." Later in 2010 Ryan was approached by CNN. He was asked to star in the 2010 CNN Documentary Right on the Edge which documented six prominent young conservative activists taking on the mainstream media: Ryan Sorba, James O'Keefe, Hannah Giles, Lila Rose, Christian Hartsock, and Jason Mattera. In December 2010 Ryan helped orchestrate another widely successful undercover investigation to expose United Nations Delegates at the COP 16 Conference on Climate Change in Cancun along with Lord Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley and young film-maker Christian Hartsock. With the aid of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) the trio exposed leftists as vying to "destabilize" the United States Economy and Ban Di-hydrogen Monoxide (aka water). The Climate Kooks video can be seen here. Ryan Sorba also played a small roll in helping Lila Rose's now famous pro-life Live Action group get started. He appeared in one of the groups early publications which can be seen here. Live Action went on to conduct an ACORN-type investigation into Planned Parenthood, which led to the organization being defunded $300 million by Congress in Febuary 2011. Unfortunately the Bill was stopped by leftists in the Senate. Ryan appeared in the 2009 independent film The Lives of Better Men, the hit music video Victicrat and another hit music video The Landreiu Dance. Ryan has appeared on FOX News' Glenn Beck, Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, MSNBC's Keith Olberman, The Howard Stern Show, CSPAN, and CNN. Ryan Sorba graduated from California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) with a Bachelor
