Staggering technological advancement, the knowledge explosion, globalization and language trends are homogenizing the world. They are effectively shrinking the planet and blending the world’s peoples into an ever more interconnected global community. The integration and collaboration between nations and cultures today are utterly unprecedented. What does it mean to live in a world that is shrinking so quickly? What will be the effect of smashing the geographic and linguistic barriers that have segregated people into distinct cultures for so many centuries?
Many believe it is ushering in a new age of peace among the nations. And there is some evidence that seems to support that view—but other factors point to a very different, very sobering outcome. On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, guest host Jeremiah Jacques discusses these questions.
In his speech to Arab heads of state this week in Saudi Arabia, U.S. President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked Iran. He went after Iran for funding arms deals in proxy nations and training militias that spread destruction and chaos. The king of Saudi Arabia also railed against Iran, calling the country “the spearhead of terrorism.” Saudi Arabia rolled out the red carpet for Mr. Trump because it is terrified of Iran and it wants the U.S. to stand up to the mullahs leading that nation. Will Mr. Trump be able to stop Iran, or will his efforts be too little too late? That and more on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
America’s major media exploded when anonymous sources said President Donald Trump revealed classified information to Russia. The real scandal, however, is that Mr. Trump “appears to be the target of a political coup,” argued Jake Novak in piece posted on cnbc. “Someone at the highest levels of government has leaked information to the news media. … That’s potentially a serious crime. And this wasn’t the first time,” Novak wrote. Mr. Trump said this week that he was the target of a “witch hunt.” On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show we ask: While Washington is occupied with chasing rumors and other meaningless scandals, who is running the country?
“Washington Is Abuzz With Surround Sound of Scandal,” the New York Times said today as President Donald Trump’s supposed “Watergate” scandal heats up. Russian President Vladimir Putin weighed in on the controversy this week, saying he would release recordings of Mr. Trump’s recent conversation with the Russian foreign minister. Meanwhile in the United Kingdom, bookies are betting against Mr. Trump finishing his first term in office. The world is watching America implode. What is the cause of this mess and what is the solution? Find out on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
Calls for President Donald Trump to be impeached are getting louder. Headlines continue to pour in about supposed conspiracies and scandals taking place in the Trump administration. While those allegations may or may not be true, one thing is clear: The major media are working to bring down President Trump. In one way, it is like Watergate. The real scandal then, however, was not what happened at the Watergate Hotel, but the series of lawless moves taken by Nixon’s persecutors to bring him down. On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show we discuss the long-lasting effect the real Watergate scandal has had on America.
The percentage of Americans that view pornography as “morally acceptable” has increased to a record high according to a recent Gallup poll. Thirty-six percent of Americans not only believe pornography is normal—they believe it is moral! American culture is on the “downward plunge,” Herbert W. Armstrong wrote over 50 years ago. Today, America’s downward spiral is accelerating faster than ever. We discuss where this is leading and more on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
“The vision of a closer Europe is retreating to the core,” ran a headline in the Financial Times today. One of the European Union’s founders, Jean Monnett, said that “Europe would be forged in crisis.” Bible prophecy says that the future European empire will be made up of a core group of nations smaller than what the EU consists of today. On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, we discuss some of the latest news coming out of Europe and how it is leading to the formation of a core European superpower.
One of the reasons FBI Director James Comey was fired was because he had lost the confidence of the rank and file of the organization, a White House spokesperson said on Wednesday. The following day, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said Comey “enjoyed broad support within the FBI and still does to this day.” A strange back-and-forth has erupted between the White House and the FBI about Comey’s reputation. What is this latest round of infighting ultimately leading to? Find out on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday night. The liberal media had a meltdown: It was Trump’s “Tuesday night massacre”; it was a taste of fascism; America is now experiencing a full-blown constitutional crisis. CBSN, desperate for more coverage to keep the pointless story alive, even sent a reporter to Sochi, Russia, to track down Vladimir Putin for his comments. He was in full hockey garb when the reporter finally got to him for questions. His response: “Your question looks very funny for me.” The scene in Washington is what you’d expect to see in a high school cafeteria. Meanwhile, as America’s major media is hypnotized by the White House drama, the very thing they fear in a Trump presidency will soon happen in Europe.
France has just muddled through a hugely important election. Neither of its mainstream parties made it to the final round—revealing the depth of the political crisis the nation faces. The far-right National Front didn't win, but it achieved its best-ever result. Meanwhile, Britain is also preparing for an election. Here the main left-wing party, the Labour Party, has been taken over by politicians arguably more extreme than the National Front’s. In today's program, Trumpet contributing editor Richard Palmer examines what the rise in these extremists says about the state of these countries.
