#173: The Dark City on a Hill; Plus, President Obama Doesn’t Believe in a Balanced Budget
Darkness is descending on the extraordinary dominance of the American superpower. From Europe to China to Russia to the Middle East, the world sees American influence diminishing.

#170: Six Policemen Gunned Down in One Week; plus, the World Looks Beyond America
Six police officers across the United States were shot dead during just a one-week span this month. Police deaths at this rate are unprecedented. So far this year, eight police officers have been killed by gunfire. In the same time span last year, only one officer was killed by gunfire. Yet little attention is drawn to this alarming trend from the media or the White House. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry explains where America’s anti-police mind-set is leading.
Also on today’s show, how the United States is being outmaneuvered in the Middle East and why it is causing the rest of the world to look beyond America.
#169: Rule of Law or the Rule of Men?
When America’s Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, they intended to prevent the common abuses of rule among nations and kingdoms by carefully defining and restricting activities and powers of all three branches of the United States government. The highest authority of the land—towering above every government official, whether elected or appointed—was the United States Constitution. So what happens when the law of the land is no longer regarded as the definite, supreme law? Listen to today’s Trumpet Daily to find out.
#168: Antonin Scalia and the Death of the U.S. Constitution
America’s left has worked for years under the belief that the United States Constitution is an evolving, “living” document. The danger of this approach is that it empowers government and diminishes the true meaning of a democracy. The late Justice Antonin Scalia was on a mission to rein in the runaway Supreme Court. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry asks what's next for the judicial branch of America’s government after the death of a strict originalist who defended the rule of law.
#167: Justice Scalia’s Death and the Radical Left’s Lawless Rampage
United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died last Friday. Justice Scalia was a staunch constitutionalist and for nearly 30 years fought relentlessly to defend the U.S. Constitution and uphold the rule of law. Scalia was pivotal in holding back the rising tide of lawlessness, and his death marks a significant moment in Satan the devil’s ongoing rampage of lawlessness. On today’s program, Trumpet columnist Brad Macdonald discusses Justice Scalia’s death and its implications for America’s future.
#166: Take Yourself to the Challenge
Do you endure hard things? What can you do to be prepared for the challenges in life? Stephen Flurry explains on today’s program that the best way to endure hardness is to run to it. Also on today’s show, how President Barack Obama’s time in office has done more to divide America than unite it.
#165: U.S. Watches as Russian Airpower and Iranian Fighters Destroy Anti-Assad Forces in Aleppo
The Syria crisis has gotten even messier since Russian jets and Iranian ground troops began their assault on rebel forces in the Syrian city of Aleppo this month. Analysts fear the siege will produce a new wave of migrants. More worrying though is the United States' reaction to the players carrying out the assault. Russia and Iran were supposed to be fighting the Islamic State, and were, for the most part, encouraged by the West. However, it’s now clear Russia and Iran are bent on propping up the Assad regime as it fights Western-backed rebel forces. U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East is helpless as it supports supposed allies in one nation and ends up fighting them in another. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry digs into the mess created in Syria and exposes the facts America has tried to ignore.
