Upcoming March 9 Meeting

Susquehanna Valley Conservatives is honored to host John Rizzo – the CIA’s top lawyer during the post 9/11 era – as our speaker at 7:00 PM Monday March 9, 2015. The meeting will be held in the Baylor Conference Room; Best Western Country Cupboard Inn, just north of Lewisburg along Route 15.

This timely discussion will include topics such as waterboarding and the decision to hold terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. These decisions, in which Rizzo was intimately involved, are still resonating today.

This is an unprecedented opportunity to hear from someone who was involved at the highest level of government in one of America’s most traumatic historical events. Not only did Mr Rizzo witness history at the highest level; he helped shape it.

If you are interested in politics, or appreciate history, or care about national security, this is your opportunity to hear the ‘inside story’ from a man who sat across the table from the likes of Vice-President Richard Chaney, National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice, and Colonel Oliver North while America struggled to deal with the events of September 11 and their aftermath.

Mr Rizzo’s book – Company Man: Thirty Years of Controversy and Crisis in the CIA – will be on sale at a discount. If you buy a copy he will be glad to sign it for you after the meeting.

All SVC Meetings are free and open to the public. As always, all points of view are welcome.

SVC Meeting Monday, February 9

Join Susquehanna Valley Conservatives as we present ‘Freedom in the Balance’ – a discussion on the assault on our Christian values and freedoms. Speakers will be Michael Geer, President of the Pennsylvania Family Institute and Randall Wenger Esq. Chief Counsel for the Independence Law Center.

Wenger and Geer will focus on threats to our religious freedom. Two businesses in our area have been targeted for refusing, because of their religious convictions, to provide services for same-sex weddings.

Topics will include:

  • We (Wenger & Geer) believe we’re at a precarious place in American history where our liberties are in jeopardy. We’re being systematically taught that our values are immoral-and the new morality is being enforced by the force of law.
  • Business owners are being fined for adhering to their convictions about marriage, and ministries are being forced to close.
  • This all is being done in the name of tolerance. The irony is that the civility that we long for is undermined rather than aided with these new laws. In a free society there should be space for all of us to live according to our convictions.
  • This presentation is aimed at understanding the specific threats to our liberty, what we can do to protect our businesses and ministries, and ultimately how to help change the tide.

When: Monday February 9 at 7:00 PM

Where: Baylor Conference Room – Best Western Country Cupboard Inn – located along Route 15 just north of Lewisburg. The conference room is located on the west side of the building.
