More than 70 percent of Americans are unhappy with the direction of the United States. And as another election season heats up, politicians again sound very optimistic about solving America’s problems and leading the nation toward a bright future. Haven’t we heard these promises many times before—even as America’s problems continue to get much worse? Listen to Stephen Flurry explain why no politician can rescue America from ruin.
Also on today’s program, Stephen Flurry follows up on President Barack Obama’s decision to “normalize” relations with Cuba a little over a year ago. Opening diplomatic ties with Cuba in December 2014 was lauded by the administration at the time, but today, the left-wing Washington Post editorial board is already calling this decision a total failure.
Has the European project failed? Many are beginning to think so. After a year of crises like Europe experienced in 2015, it’s easy to see why people would think the entire project is failing. From the European Union to the eurozone to the Schengen Agreement, all of Europe’s core institutions are taking major hits. But does that mean Europe’s hopes for unity are over? Bible prophecy provides incredible detail about what’s in store for Europe. Learn about these awesome prophecies on today’s episode of the Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
The world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism is back in business. The year 2015 will go down as a year of great progress for Iran. It increased its global influence, it boosted its reputation with Western powers, managed a deal which saw the lifting of sanctions and the opening up of billions of dollars, and received a free pathway to building a nuclear weapon. This so-called “progress” should be deeply alarming to the world. Is this the sort of “progress” that will keep Iran from increasing its terrorist actions? United States President Barack Obama seems to think so. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry looks back at President Obama’s determined efforts to bring Iran out from its four-decade-long status as a global pariah.
France followed right along with the negotiations that led to a deal that essentially paved the way for Iran to build a nuclear weapon. To welcome Iran into the international community and to begin building diplomatic relations, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was invited to France. However, there was no state dinner or even a meal between the two nations' leaders. Why? France was adamant about serving wine at the meal and would not compromise with this to appease Iran. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry discusses the backward reasoning behind the nuclear deal and mankind's handling of various problems around the world.
On Jan. 26, 1788, nearly 850 English convicts arrived at Botany Bay, New South Wales. The goal was to establish a home for England’s criminals. But over the ensuing years and decades, and without much forethought and detailed planning, England’s colony in Australia transformed from a fledgling penal colony into a first-rate power and key asset of the globe-girdling British Empire. In today’s program, Trumpet writer Brad Macdonald explains the biblical promise underpinning Australia’s remarkable transformation.
Today’s leaders talk about peace but gloss over the insoluble problems of this world. Man has been trying to attain peace throughout history but has never discovered a way to achieve it. Strong nations once fought to establish peace and order, but today most leaders choose to simply talk about peace, assuming the problems will take care of themselves. The Bible says that near the end of this age people will say, “Peace, peace; when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 6:14). One translation of that verse reads, “You can’t heal a wound by saying it’s not there!” On today’s program, Stephen Flurry discusses, from the pages of the Bible, the only path that will lead to true, long-lasting peace.
In 1992, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry used biblical prophecy to make a bold prediction that was well ahead of its time. “The king of the south could rule Iraq or Iran or both countries. But it is looking more now like Iran may produce this king,” he wrote. Over the next quarter-century, events in the Middle East backed up this dramatic prophecy as Iran quickly progressed toward becoming the most powerful nation in the region. Then on January 16 of this year, Iran’s position as king in the Middle East was finalized. Iran’s ascent to dominance was forecast within the pages of your Bible and loudly proclaimed by the Trumpet—long before current events proved it to be true. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry looks back at the amazing history and prophecy that has led up to Iran being crowned king in the Middle East.
#151: Iran Uses Unfrozen Cash for Terrorism, France’s War on Terror, and Putin’s Terrorist Attack in Britain
United States Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview yesterday that he believes some of Iran’s unfrozen money from sanctions “will end up in the hands of the [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps].” As Iran begins to budget its new sanctions-relief money for terrorism, France is extending its nationwide state of emergency so it can keep fighting the Islamic State terror group. And, as if the region isn’t chaotic enough, the nation now calling the shots in the Middle East—Russia—is led by a man whom Britain believes personally approved the murder of an ex-Russian spy living on British soil. Stephen Flurry covers all these topics and more on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
On today’s show, Stephen Flurry takes a glance at the pre-World War ii economic scene and explains the similarities to today’s financial woes. Despite the warning signs, people, businesses and nations continue to spend as though everything is fine. Where are these dangerous trends leading?
Today's show also further explains how Europe's refugee crisis is stirring Germans to demand change in their political system.
Three Americans were kidnapped in Baghdad the day the nuclear deal with Iran was made official. America’s embassy in Iraq confirmed the kidnapping, and the only question remaining was who was behind it? One week before the Americans were captured, the United States embassy in Iraq received a tip-off that an Iran-backed Shiite militia group was planning to kidnap the Americans. U.S. officials, leery of how the plot would affect the implementation of the nuclear deal, thought Iran would call off the attack. But it didn’t. Has Iran really changed for the better after the nuclear deal, or is it just continuing business as usual? This time, with a nice $100 billion allowance. On today’s show, Stephen Flurry looks into Iran’s latest act of belligerence and asks why the United States is allowing it to happen.
