Christian evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham called the nation to prayer Thursday on the annual National Day of Prayer . In a Facebook video post Thursday, Graham said, “I believe prayer is so important,” particularly at this time in our nation’s history. “[O]f course, our country is in trouble, has been in trouble,” he said. “We are in a downward spiral, morally, spiritually, and the only hope for our country is, Christians pray, and for God to intervene.

On Friday, the European Union took aim at one of America’s most iconic companies, Apple, with a multibillion-dollar antitrust lawsuit . The Europeans are hopelessly uncompetitive in the major tech industries , so they resort to lawsuits to slash at American supremacy. The Euro-socialists want to pilfer as much as 10 percent of Apple’s profit stream. This flimsy charge of “monopoly behavior” by the EU is becoming standard practice as Germany, France and others continue to fall technologically behind and their citizens become rapid purchasers of Silicon Valley products and services.
