Greece is suffering from lots of economic woes. Even so, it’s a beautiful country with great history, especially the opportunity to visit some of the great Christian historical sites as well as the Greek antiquities.

Greece is suffering from economic collapse. When I was there two years ago, air traffic controllers were on strike, garbage collectors were on strike, and even the pharmacy owners were on strike. Government socialism has eroded the last vestiges of the economy.

Neo-Communism is sweeping the world.

At the same time he is shutting down TV and radio stations, Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez attended the Venice Film Festival with his entourage, to be praised by those who haven’t suffered under his dictatorial regime. A big splash in the news media followed this despicable event.

Several people in the Democratic-Socialist power structure have decided that the only way they can convert America into a totalitarian gulag is to destroy the Church, the People of God. And, too many of the sheeple have fallen for their nefarious plans.

My friend Joseph Tson, from Romania, was one of the instrumental pastors in delivering Romania from Communism in the 1980s. He said that for years on Sunday in his Evangelical Church in Romania, he preached Jesus while the Romania equivalent of the KGB sat in the front row, monitoring his sermons. He always wondered why they did not care that he was preaching salvation in Jesus Christ,

Gramsci and Tocqueville in America

By John Fonte, Contributing Writer

As intellectual historians have often had occasion to observe, there are times in a nation’s history when certain ideas are just “in the air.”

Needed: A Patriotic Assimilation Policy

By John Fonte, Ph.D

In America, today as in the past, immigration and assimilation are bound together like Siamese twins. It makes no sense to talk about immigration without talking about assimilation, nor does it make sense to develop an immigration policy without an assimilation policy. The United States is the most successful immigration country in the history of the world for one basic reason⎯the triumph of patriotic assimilation⎯the assimilation of immigrants as loyal members of the American body politic.

God calls you to eternal life in “the city on a hill” in Matthew 5:14. Why would you or I want to live in a city on a hill?

Because everyone therein manifests the fruit of the Holy Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

The fruit of the Holy Spirit comes from knowing the true freedom of loving Jesus Christ and being filled with His Holy Spirit. When our moribund flesh comes alive in His Holy Spirit, we proclaim the Holy Spirit’s power by demonstrating the fruit of the Holy Spirit and the real unity in His Holy Spirit, which is a Christian worldview.

So, what is a Christian worldview?

For a long time now we have been gravitating toward 1940s movies even though most of them were made before we were born. We like movies from this era because they tend to be more moral than many earlier and later movies. For one thing, there are consequences for actions. For another, successful, strong, and moral women are presented as the norm, especially during the
war years.

America is in a World War
The United States is at war with the rest of the world and our central government has barely mentioned it to us. We have no plan for winning the war, and even worse, we are losing battle after battle and things are going rapidly downhill. Communicating in Newspeak, the central government is behaving as if all’s well. It is not. Our nation has entered what pilots fear and are carefully trained to avoid: a graveyard spiral, only this one is economic.
At stake is our way of life, standard of living, our children’s futures and our national sovereignty. Instead of targeting our external enemies, an Orwellian Washington chooses to attack and diminish our own institutions and place the jackboot of central control on more and more of our throats every day.
