June 4th — Friday Forum — Steve Frank Returns

Steve Frank Returns with Another Dose of California Crazy

In this day and age of starkly divided politics, cancel culture, and censorship, with our governor hanging in the balance, where is our State headed? Where are glimmers of hope for the state? And once we’re successful in evicting the current resident in the Governor’s mansion, who’s next?

Steve Frank, favorite political pundit and editor of CAPoliticalReview.com, returns for our next Friday Forum on June 4th at 10AM to inform us of the latest in political follies in California and Washington, DC.

June 23–Regular SVARW Monthly Monthly Meeting

Winning the Water Wars

Who prevails in Fish v. People?

Water. Water is life. Alas, lack of water is California’s quintessential struggle, so we’re informed by our leaders. As we head into yet another year of “extreme drought” California has gone all-in for extreme conservation measures that will eventually lead to rationing. But do we really need to do this? Is there another option that allows for a bounty of water instead of stingy allocations?

As our SVARW series Let’s Fix California! continues, this month we examine how California, thanks to geographic blessings, can hold its water destiny in its own hands. Unfortunately, California water policy has devolved largely into an insane battle over fish habitats. Fish populations are important, but flushing more water down the rivers isn’t doing much to revive their still-declining numbers.

Is the challenge with geography or public policy choices? Do we have enough water? How did we get here? And how do we get back to a rational water policy in the Golden State?

Steven Greenhut, R Street Institute policy expert and author of Winning the Water Wars, claims that California can meet its water needs by promoting abundance rather than managing scarcity. Join us as he tells us how this can be accomplished and what we can do to make it happen!

September 11, 2021 –SVARW Stars and Stripes Gala

Stars and Stripes Gala Returns for 2021

Forced to cancel our annual Stars and Stripes Gala last year thanks to Guv Nusiance  and the “scamdemic”, SVARW is excited to once again host our annual FUN EVENT for conservatives! To pay tribute to the 20th anniversary of 9/11, our Stars and Stripes Gala will take place on Saturday, September 11, 2021.  We have managed to keep ticket prices the same as in 2019 and include valet parking in the price.   Early-bird ticket price in effect until June 30, 2021.

Tired of living among liberals???   Attending the SVARW Annual Stars and Stripes Gala is the perfect opportunity to relax and have fun with other like-minded conservatives.

Taking place at the beautiful Saratoga Estate of Suzanna Cody and her husband Ron Hills, the evening begins as you are greeted with a glass of champagne and invited to enjoy appetizers.  As you meet and mingle with the other guests, take a stroll around the lovely surroundings as you find your assigned table.   A catered gourmet dinner will follow.  Wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.  Valet parking is included in the price of your ticket.


 SVARW’s Stars and Stripes Gala is always graced with many office holders and candidates.  Candidates find Stars and Stripes to be an excellent venue to meet potential supporters.

 Top Three Questions

  1. Will I feel out of place if I don’t have a date? No!  Many single people attend.  You can request to be seated with a friend and/or with other single people.
  2. Who should attend?  Conservatives that want to have fun!  Anyone running for office.
  3. What should I wear? Over the years we have suggested “casual

elegance”.  Typically men wear jackets and ladies wear a dress or slacks.


SVARW members can purchase tickets for $59 and non-members for $69 until June 30th. After June 30th, tickets will cost $69 for members and $79 for non-members.    Sponsor and Trump members attend Stars and Stripes for FREE!

New non-members can purchase tickets at the member price by joining SVARW at the time of purchase.  And, as an added bonus, their membership is good until December 31, 2022.
