Brian Dennis
Unanchored: How Barack Obama and the Democrat Party are Moving the US Away From Western Political Tradition


From the Hebrews to the Greeks to the Romans to the American Founding Fathers, religious and political values - often described as the Western Political Tradition - were developed that enabled the creation, growth and success of the United States of America.  Today's Democratic Party stands for principles and acts in ways that are in complete opposition to that tradition. 


Our featured speaker will be Brian Dennis, a business and estate planning attorney.  Brian will provide a historical perspective of who we are as a polity, and then provide practical suggestions for turning our country's direction back to the ideals of the Founders. 


Brian Dennis is an attorney in private practice, working in the areas of estate planning and business transactions.  Born, raised in and a life-long resident of the San Fernando Valley, he is married and the father of a teenage daughter.  A graduate of Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, CA, he holds an undergraduate degree in Politics from Brandeis University, Waltham, MA. 


He also served as the West Coast representative for the American Friends of The Hebrew University, where he helped donors with Charitable Gifting and Planned Giving.  In 1986 he was a Republican candidate from the San Fernando Valley for the California State Assembly.

Hollywood Stories

Hollywood Stories
Stephen Schochet is a member of the Westside Republicans and is a true conservative.  He is also a tour guide in Hollywood.  Over the years he has acquired a lot of interesting and humorous stories about the denizens of "Hollywood."  He has written a book which was recently published, appropriately called "Hollywood Stories."  It is a collection of stories about the famous.

Stephen Schochet
 Stephen is going to tell us a couple of those stories.  You will also have an opportunity to purchase the book.  I have read the book and I found it to be highly entertaining, humorous and interesting.

In these tough economic times we have decided to help each other out economically.

We are preparing a business roster of Republicans for SFVRC members.  This will be merged with a county-wide business directory that is being prepared by LA County Republican Clubs.

We are encouraging all of our members to patronize the businesses of our fellow members and Republicans.  If you need goods and services, why not have them provided by your fellow Republicans?

For those of you who would like to have your business listed in our business directory, please send an email to:
BUSINESS@SFVRC.ORG .  Provide your name, the name and street address of your business, your business phone number, your business web site address, and your email address.  Also provide a description of the services you provide or the type of goods you sell.

We would like to publish this directory by May, so please send in your information.  Send an email to with the above information.

We expect to have another great meeting of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club on Tuesday, July 6th.  I hope to see you there.
