Show Notes

  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel resigned from her political party, but her successor is very similar. This means the party did nothing to address the crises that put Merkel in jeopardy, and discontent and anger among Germans is sure to increase.
  • The terrorist group Hezbollah is deeply entrenched in Lebanon, and it is taking its orders from Iran. However, there is evidence that the Lebanese are deeply opposed to this situation, and it could radically change, altering the geopolitics of the Middle East.
  • A prominent politician in South Africa is demanding that his followers kill white people. Race relations in this country have been deteriorating for years, and the situation could get far worse very quickly.
  • And we’ll conclude by contrasting the view of Jesus Christ presented in Christmas with the one presented in the Bible.
