Radical Islam and Resettlement Jihad: Are Poland and Its Neighbors the Next Potential Victims?
Mr. Matthew J. O’Brien
1:55 PM 

The nations of Europe are rapidly becoming the victims of their unnecessarily generous immigration policies, their overly broad concepts of religious freedom and their unwillingness to defend Judeo-Christian culture from Islamic encroachment.

The Divine Plan – a feature film presentation
by author & filmmaker Robert Orlando 
featuring Dr. Marek Chodakiewicz 
3:00 PM
Robert Orlando takes viewers behind the scenes of a partnership that changed the world between the American President, Ronald Reagan, and the Pope, John Paul II. Was a pontiff and politician’s work overthrowing communism the result of inexorable political and economic forces, or could it have been part of what Reagan called, “The Divine Plan”? Told in part as a graphic thriller this highly-stylized motion picture film pushes beyond the bounds of conventional documentary-making into a world where one’s belief might determine the facts.
