This week Trumpet Hour covers all the big news. First, China’s economy is in trouble. The Asian nation devalued its currency by 3.6 percent, sending shockwaves through the global financial system. Why are economists so concerned?

Also, the Ukraine crisis is heating up—some observers think Russia could be ready to launch a war.

Next, Trumpet writers discuss a policy paper by a European think tank, giving some insight into how Europe seeks to address global crises from dangers in Asia, threats in the Middle East, and a weakening U.S.

Following that, is insight given by an Iranian general. He revealed that when the U.S. threatens to take military action, Iran’s military officials share a big laugh.

Next, the Trumpet Hour gets the facts in a new statement from President Obama. The president claims new clean energy regulations will save you money. Find out if it’s true.

“We’re ready for war!” That’s what protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, said this week on the one-year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown. Trumpet Hour discusses how race problems in America are only getting worse.

A new archaeological discovery in the Middle East brings some ancient history to life—that of the epic struggle between ancient Israel and the Philistines! Listen to find more details about this exciting find.

Trumpet Hour also answers questions from listeners and ends with some great advice from one of history’s wisest men on how to handle haters. All this and more on the Trumpet Hour.
