AHEPA Supreme President George E. Loucas Optimistic about the Future of His Organization

I could not have stated this any better. Bravo to our Executive Director.

At first I only noticed the reference to the difficulties facing organizations like AHEPA and I thought—true. But Basil points out the author’s alleged direct connection between a failing Sears and AHEPA, which escaped me, and with that bleak outlook I take issue. In one article judgment and sentencing are rendered: service organizations built upon fundamental values like love, respect, family, honor, friendship, community service, charity, excellence, and many more, are dying or dead.

The AHEPA Family carries a legacy forged in these values and found only through Greek heritage: philotimo. I would not bet against philotimo!

The many who invest heart and soul in human bonds created as an end-product to joining together to promote higher ideals for man and community see things differently and thus strive through action to make things different. Belief in and effort towards a greater good transcend bricks and mortar. A human bond ignited by these values makes the difference for a better community and humanity.

Add one touch of philotimo and we have something truly special that very well may separate AHEPA from the rest of the pack and avoid such a harsh sense of reality. Mix one touch of hope and my bet is AHEPA survives—bricks, mortar, social media and all.

Thank you for the thought-provoking letter to the Editor.
George E. Loucas, R.Ph., J.D.
Supreme President
The Order of AHEPA

  1. In response to the Grand Poupa or Supreme President of the Ahepa and his Newspaper collaborator , Mr. Diamantaris ..in what is merely a political arm of Masons and Birchers , who do not represent me, or any Greek American in promoting Hellenic values and principles, but the interest of whoever the corrupt ruliong party of America is in power ….or to the Glory of America….kind of similar to what the Brown Shirts of Germany did for the Nazi parties …political , military and economic goals! They are the epitomy of what Donald Trump was elected to do….eliminate these shadow societies…who secretly promote agenda’s and interests of the ruling republican party, or when it suit them the Democratic party….or whoever provides them with the opportunity to network for their personal ego’s and future opportunities for themselves!

    However, I will let former President of the United States John F.Kennedy respond to Mr. Loucas amd Mr. Diamantaris for what they really represent and what reflects the dangers and threats we as American and Greeks should be alert to ….and demand from TNH….not the rantings of members of Secret Societies, who somehow ….bestow on themselves….the representatives of Greek American culture and values…when their entire operation …is based on their own form of oppressive rule and oppresson.

    If you cannot read this speech…just go on to YOU TUBE….and hear the speech! After making this speech and warning America about the dangers of these secret societies….John F. Kennedy was Assasinated two weeks later!

    John F. Kennedy’s Secret Societies Speech 1961

    “The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.”

    “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

    Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, and no secret is revealed.”

    “No President should fear public scrutiny of his program. For from that scrutiny comes understanding; and from that understanding comes support or opposition. And both are necessary. I am not asking your newspapers to support the Administration, but I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. For I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed.

    I not only could not stifle controversy among your readers– I welcome it. This Administration intends to be candid about its errors; for as a wise man once said: “An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors; and we expect you to point them out when we miss them.

    Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed– and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First (emphasized) Amendment– the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution– not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants”–but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.

    This means greater coverage and analysis of international news– for it is no longer far away and foreign but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news as well as improved transmission. And it means, finally, that government at all levels must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security.

    In summary, everything John F. Kennedy demanded and warned us about….has come to fruition, including the pathetic lack of real journalism , but fake news!

    Let see how fast the Secret society boys and Mr. Diamantaris pull this post and article!

  2. Michael Giannakos is a conspiracy theories junky. If you equate AHEPA with the masons, or whoever else, you are demented and should be banished. You have no idea what you’re saying. And I’m sure that AHEPA would be more than happy not to represent you. Go back to your computer and write some more nonsense. Just don’t make it so long and boring. No one wants to spend their precious time reading your nonsense

  3. Bobby, I have a scoop for you and your secret cult of imposters….neither I or the former President of the United States …John F. Kennedy are demented or conspiracy Junkies. Furthermore, the only person who is demented and delusional are those Ahepa members like you….who believe they have the power to “Banish” anybody, even if they are no longer a part of this secret cult, or never has been part of it!
    Let me help you, Bobby, as a former church board member …..and regretfully admit….a member of this cult at one time….trust me….don’t walk away from the Ahepa….Run! Run! Your chapter members are merely troll farms..to recruit Greek Americans from the church….to simply be fund raisers and send back money to the ruling Aristocrates of the order of Ahepa…… who portray themselves as representatives of the interests of Greeks and Hellenism….when in fact, they are merely networking opportunist with the political elites of the ruling party in Washington….to promote American policies among Greeks and Greek American….whether they are ethical or not! Policies which are counter productive to the reunification of Cyprus and make the U.S. responsible for the maintanance of the occupation of Northern Cyprus by NATO ALLY TURKEY! Unethical policies which endorse and promote for blood money….UAE airlines wholly owned by the government of the United Arab Emirates….acknowledged with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey for sponsoring the Sunni Muslim jihadist brigades like Al Queda, ISIS, and Al Nustra front to overthrow the government of Syria. and who have murdered thousand of Orthodox Christians and Clergy thruout Syria, and Iraq, and burned their churches! While the Ahepa members were told to fly United Emirate Airlines and plaster their Annual convention meetings with posters of UAE Airlines! But the boys from the Ahepa….didn’t stop their to earn their blood money and trash Hellenic values and principles….they endorsed UAE airlines over Aegean airlines , a registered commercial airliner of Greece, who competes with UAE airlines thruout Europe and the Middle East! So much for representing Greek interests!
    UAE, the owners of UAE airlines…where Crosses are not allowed to be displayed …. on any building by laws! UAE who with Sunni Muslim brother…Saudi Arabia and the United States…are commiting the most heinous war crimes bombing of the poorest country in the world …Yemen, because they are not Sunni Muslims! UAE who has been sited for torture of foreign citizens, and most recently, indicted for unfair pricing practices for their cheap UAE airline prices ….which are subsidized by the government of the UAE!
    That Bobby…is one of the best kept secrets of this Secret organization….which not even their members are allowed to know. …and any protest …is immediately oppressed or “Banished”!

    I am sorry, you found it challenging to read , not what I said …but what one of the Greatest Presidents in American history…said about the Ahepa! Unfortunately, President Kennedy. warning …has now come true…and why we are no longer a democracy…but a tyranical empire run in the same manner as a Secret Society…like Ahepa! Today, informed Americans call it the shadow government, Deep States or simply…the swamp!

    . Sorry for the inconvenience of the length of my memo and president Kennedy….but it is far more worthy , than an individual who can;t put together more then three sentences of derogatory words to defend his arguments! But then again ….that is how secret societies …operate!

  4. Good job Michael…

    All these Greek groups do nothing for Greece or American Greeks, just smoke and mirrors..

    We should be sending $Billions yes Billions back to greece if all these groups that keep saying we have 2-3million greek orthodox in america..lets see we will take just 1 million greeks here at a yearly contribution from babies to yiayia’s $500.00 each would be $500.million, ok then the 2million that all these groups claim we have, their $500. = $1.Billion
    with all the “Rich Greeks” we hear about daily let them give in the millions yearly, lets see if another $500.+million can’t be raised..And All This Mainly For The Big 3, Education, Medical, Military-yes of course even a billion can’t buy much military hardware so it will go into more useful uses of military procurement. Anyway this is how we give back to greece, not parties, meetings, photos of fat greeks with awards..but true help to greece.

  5. How pretentious “SUPREME PRESIDENT” How disgraceful a title…now all you need is a tiny car to run around in parades..same bunch of old greeks pretending power, yet offering nothing…I have said this before, I have been to Non-Greek fundraisers where in less than 30mins $14.million was raised for a country in need…Only thing Supreme Presidents Raise is their hand at a 45° Angle towards the sky/celing…Go on with your Fake
    Power, the real greeks will still take over and show all how its done. Go join SYRIZA they need more fakes.

    1. Pavlo… what you have posted….represents what I define ….as an informed Greek American…and one who can’t be labeled demented or misguided by the perpetrators of lies and distortions of the truths by compliant media to satisfy their money launderers interests…like TNH, CNN, etc etc
      The speech by John Kennedy….clearly highlights the dangers of secret societies like the” Supreme President” of the Ahepa…. and his entourage of supreme lawyers and wall street financial aristocrates, who do nothing, but take advantage … of many very old, but dedicated and loyal Greeks…proud of their heritage and genuinely wanting to be part of an organization….that promotes and preserves the heritage of our Greek ancestry….for future generations! Unfortunately, they are clueless and uninformed….that their Ahepa …is now comprised of many non-greeks who could care less about promoting Greek Values and culture….and are only interested in scholarship opportunities, and promoting the political interests of the State Department of the United States, not Greece! Yes, and these same individuals with Greek Americans are members of the Masons and Birchers….who they blatantly attempt to recruit to from the Ahepa Secret Societies….and consequently , reflect their fanatical allegience to anything the corrrupt Government of the United States does or is in its interest, even if it harms Greece, Cyprus, or Greek American families!

      You see, the Ahepa Secret Society, was established to assist the mass migration of Greeks from Greece in the early 1920’s to facing discrimination, exploitation and oppression in moving to the United States! Furthermore, to this end, they were chartered to preserve and promote the Greek Heritage and Culture in Amreica….and based on the Hellenic values of our culture.

      But quess what ….their is no mass migration crisis from Greece…..and therefore, their is no need for the Ahepa! Therefore, they have been reduced to sitting in the corner of church , gossiping about what the ails them….and sending in their annual membership fees to a bunch of networking lawyers, and financial wall street operators ,whose only function is to do as you said …use smoke and mirrors to create and illusion that they actually are a legitimate voice of the Greek people and to network with the corrupt politicall aristocrates to enhance their personal careers both politically and financially!

      Simply, these Supreme leaders of the Ahepa…have hijacked the mission of Ahepa to serve the interest of Greeks and Greek Americans , to now serve their interests, which includes representing the political interests of the government beuracracy and Masons….. which benefits the United States States department and members of Congress…like indicted Ahepa member …Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey for bribery and gifts from just one of the many Jewish lobby groups, who actually, do something for there Israel! When the New Supreme President of the Ahepa goes to Greece , like they do every year…he will proclaim to the people of Greece….on how wonderful it is …that Greece is part of Nato….and that their are U.S bases in Greece, and this represents the views of all Greek Americans! He will go to Cyprus….and tell them how the Ahepa supports the people of Cyprus…in their efforts to reunite and bring to justice the murderers of the Greek Cypriot families in Northern Cyprus…. when their only interest is to reunite Cyprus, based on the benefits and interests of the state department of the United States! He will not tell them , why after 40 years, the Nato ally Turkey of the United States….still remains in Norther Cyprus because the United STates and Nato have failed to take any actions against a member of Nato ,illegally occupying territory of the sovereign nation of Cyprus, while threatening war with the Russian Federation for annexing Crimea!

      Ahepa ..is reinvented itself …and is a fraud…and unfortunately….. the old men of Ahepa….are only interested in gossiping and making money for an organization that doesn’t even exist….and is merly a playground for the rich and famous…to fantasize about how powerful and significant they are to the world!

      This organization should be banned from any church facilities to hold meeting and be on the boards of our churches to use them to promote their agenda’s to recuit unimformed members of our churches to their secret society and those of the Masons…who represent political views in conflict with most Greeks and Church leaders!

      Palvo…you obviously, do you research and get the facts…. and don’t let TNH and their secret society followers fool you again! Because, you now have your answer….as to the insanity we are witnessing in the government of Greece and the United States…and is simly…now …just run like the secret societies of Ahepa and the Masons!

  6. Efharisto Michael…..And to the ” Taco Supreme” enjoy your title bought on ebay….let the real greeks run the show….Here in America, and next year in Greece when we finally get rid of SYRIZA..

    There’s A New Taco Bell Opening in Greece, Mr Supreme Will Be Right At Home…

    A new open Greek American Organization that truly helps greece…not titles, awards, meetings, just multi millions raised and used for good in greece. Even before the “crisis” greece needed help in all areas, I have been trying to raise $$$ for a used Fire Water Tender for a volunteer fire department in greece http://www.oedd.gr can’t get donations or help from any Greek American Organization, so been working 2nd 3rd job trying to get a little extra. So yes we need better real help for greece….

    We greek americans, My Father Was Born here as was I, my Grandparents came from Greece, Greece is either in your blood or not…A title does not make you greek…..or supreme…only actions do…

    AXIOS MICHAEL….

    1. Oxios Pavlo… you can count me in! …. because…. only a real Greek …can understand and express…what should be the public logo…for the country of Greece…and plastered over the Billboards, Schools, Universities, government, airports…. of Greece, exactly what you said……”Greece is either in your Blood or Not” !

      Because the passion for life with liberty and independence of the people of Greece…is what the rest of the world envies …and do not have! It is this….that the immigrant brought to America…a gift …which survives to this day….among real Greeks….which allows them to laugh in the face of adversity, and cry with happiness …with their successes!

      And it is this passion ….that must be the catalyst of Greece…in ridding themselves of those Greeks, who have oppressed that passion for their independence and self determination!
      Today, millions of people come to Greece….including annual Greek Americans…..not to just travel to a vacation …but to embrace …what really make Greece great….its passion for life…. and how to enjoy it! Greece…is the rehab capital of the world…for societies littered with people trying to find …what used to be good in life! Where money never can satisfy ….their need for passion to enjoy life, no matter the difficulty!

      The Greek Secret Societies and the Greek Government …..have demonstrated that they neither respect or support the people of Greece to preserve this greatness, but clearly prefer to respect the wishes of wealthy and powerful Aristocrates from outside of Greece! They do not elevate Greece, they continue to be apologist for Greece, and provide nothing, as you eloquently states.

      Pablo, I loved your math, because, what you described is reality…on what Greece needs….and not as some sort of handout, but representing an investment into preserving ….what is the symbol of civilization ….and our way of living for all the people of the world! Today…in our schools, Universities, governments, military, medicine , the arts and sciences….they all point to the beginning an architects of our civilization …Greece! And today…. they still look to Greece, like a security blanket…. that as long as she lives….there is still a reminder….of what we were and what we can be….in the future! If we fail to assist Greece…we not only fail our heritage, but our children….in seeing thru the decadent society of Freaks. and depraved devilates parading around the world today….. falsely declaring their example of how to live one’s life….which is based on how much money most people do not have….and not one based on simple examples from our Greek Heritage…past down over centuries thru the greatest philosopher in history!

      Yes Pablo, your math is worthy….when Jewish organizations and their followers can extort almost 5 billion dollars a year from the Treasury of the United States….to be gifted to the Jewish state of Israel,for the past 20 years, and a state no bigger than Rhode Island, but the patriotic Mason of the Ahepa…haven’t gotten one dime appropriated to Greece…. the point country of Western Democracy!

      Only corrupt governments and Greek organizations…. have been derelict in demanding their share of this ….free money…apparently waitng for someone to actually ask for it ! But why wouldn’t anybody ask for it? Because these guys …are to busy working for their vacant benefactors!

      Thank you Pablo….I didn;t think there were any real Greeks out there anymore! Refreshing.
