For this year’s annual Ronald Reagan Lecture, The Center for Vision & Values will host two distinguished guests who will share their incredible insight into the ideas of the Great Communicator and how, merely one month from a presidential election, Ronald Reagan’s leadership can be a much needed blueprint to strengthen America again—especially in the realm of foreign policy. Joining us this year will be Herb Meyer and Robert Orlando.

Dr. Paul Kengor, Reagan scholar and Grove City College professor of political science, will lead the discussion focusing on major issues for Americans to consider in 2016 and beyond. Issues from foreign policy, Russia and ISIS, the U.S. at the end of WWII, General George S. Patton vs. President Franklin Roosevelt and the start of the Cold War, President Barack Obama and the removal of troops from Iraq in 2011, and the state of America’s current national security concerns will make for a fascinating evening held on the beautiful campus of Grove City College. Mark your calendars now so you can join us on October 6 for what is sure to be a memorable evening: “Reagan, Patton and Foreign Policy: From the Cold War to the Rise of ISIS and Beyond.”

 


HerbHerb Meyer. Meyer served during the Reagan administration as special assistant to the director of Central Intelligence and vice chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council. In these positions, he managed production of the U.S. National Intelligence Estimates and other top-secret projections for President Reagan and his national security advisers. Meyer is widely credited with being the first senior government official to forecast the collapse of the Soviet Union—a forecast for which he later was awarded the U.S. National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, the highest honor in the intelligence community.

Meyer is host and producer of “The Siege of Western Civilization,” a DVD outlining the threats to America’s security, economy and culture. The DVD is an international best-seller. Formerly an associate editor of Fortune Magazine, he has authored several books including “The War Against Progress,” “Real-World Intelligence,” and “Hard Thinking.” Meyer and his wife Jill are co-authors of “How to Write,” one of America’s most widely used writing handbooks. He is the author of two new eBooks: “How to Analyze Information: A Step-by-Step Guide to Life’s Most Vital Skill,” and “The Cure for Poverty.” He has just published an update to his famous memo Why is the World So Dangerous. Meyer’s essays on intelligence and politics have been published in numerous outlets including The Wall Street Journal, National Review Online, Policy Review, and American Thinker. He is frequently a guest on leading television and radio programs.

 

OrlandoRobert Orlando. Orlando is the president of Nexus Media. He is the director of “Silence Patton” a documentary that digs into the pages of history—inside documents and archives—to find answers to the questions: Why was General George S. Patton silenced during his service in World War II? Why was he fired as General of the Third Army and as governor of post-war Bavaria? Was his freakish collision with an Army truck a real accident? Who were his enemies? Who wanted his personal silence? Some argue that Patton foresaw the coming Cold War with the Soviet Union and advised the United States not to withdraw troops completely.

In addition to his work on Patton, one in a series of documentaries that explore the key turning points in Western history (Apostle Paul, Caesar Augustus, George Washington), Orlando has worked for over 20 years as a digital media producer, director and editor with a variety of commercial and corporate partners including American Express, Unilever, the Wall Street Journal and Conde Nast, to provide innovative content and stylized storytelling that strengthens brands. As manager of a boutique creative shop Rob believes Nexus stands alone as producer of high impact storytelling.
