Special Report: Pope Francis’s Communist Mentor

 

An excerpt from George Neumayr’s “The Political Pope,” to be released Tuesday.

After Pope Francis early in his papacy decried capitalism as “trickle-down economics” — a polemical phrase coined by the left during the Reagan years that Francis frequently borrows — radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh commented, “This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the Pope.” Talk show host Michael Savage called him “Lenin’s pope.” Pope Francis took such comments as a compliment. “I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended,” he told the Italian press.

China will take more than your manufacturing job.

China is a sovereign state in East Asia with a population of over 1.3 billion people. The nation possesses the world’s largest economy by some measurements, the world’s largest population and the fourth-largest territory.

These are the building blocks of a superpower. While the world anticipates China gaining superpower status, analysts debate on when and whether
its rise will be peaceful.

The Trumpet forecasts that China will continue to grow as a formidable power, combining its strength with Russia. Further, we forecast that it will play a major role in waging economic war that will devastate America.

Major media outlets are starting to notice parallels between modern Europe and the Holy Roman Empire. Are these similarities to be celebrated? Check history.

“The Holy Roman Empire Can Help Inspire a Different European Union.” This was the headline of a January 20 article in the Financial Times of Britain.

Many authorities today believe returning to the ways of the Holy Roman Empire would vastly improve Europe. This reflects a dangerous ignorance of history. Continue reading

America Faces an Explosion of Racial Violence

Assassinations of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge mark a dangerous escalation of race hatred. America’s highest-ranking leaders are fueling the problem.

In two separate instances this past July, one in Louisiana and the other in Minnesota, police fatally shot two black men. On the surface, these shootings look bad—as you can see in some of the videos that were made. If the officers involved are found to be guilty of racism or brutality, they should be punished to the full extent of the law. In America, no one is supposed to be convicted before receiving a fair trial.

Brace Yourself for Earthshaking Events in Europe

 

We are about to witness some electrifying prophecies come to pass in Europe at a lightning-fast pace! With Britain on the way out of the European Union, influential voices in Europe are calling for the EU to be dramatically restructured. In August 1950, Herbert W. Armstrong said that the world would be “stunned” and “dumbfounded” by how quickly a powerful “United States of Europe” would emerge on the scene. The Bible says the fulfillment of these prophecies immediately precedes the return of Jesus Christ. We must not be caught off guard, as much of the world will be, when these events begin to occur. Keep up with these important trends on the Trumpet Daily Radio Show. Continue reading

China’s Hundred-Year Strategy

Beijing has a documented plan to be the premier global superpower by 2049. It’s over halfway there. 

Americans think in four-year election cycles. Chinese leaders think in terms of centuries. Just leaf through the glossy, cream-colored, gold-flecked pages of The Governance of China. This anthology of political theories by Chinese President Xi Jinping is considered almost sacred scripture in Beijing.

Across 18 chapters about leading the most populous nation on the planet, Xi outlines his utopian vision for the Chinese people. In the world he describes, the Chinese are heirs to an ancient and unique civilization entitled to a privileged position among nations. In this world, China is an economic, cultural and military superpower, while the United States is no longer a major geopolitical power.

Watch Germany!

 

Europe’s refugee crisis is shaking Europe to its foundations. The shocks will help bring a new leader to power soon who will make a sinister deal with Russia.

Every reader should closely watch what is happening in Germany. That nation is going through some dramatic changes that are about to reshape the country and the whole of Europe. Yet most of the world is asleep to how serious these changes are.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has never been weaker. In a very short time, she has gone from being one of the most popular politicians in the world to being the target of a lot of anger from the German people.

“You are killing off Europe.” Those were German politician Edmund Stoiber’s words for Chancellor Merkel in early January. Stoiber is the former minister-president of the state of Bavaria. In his view, Merkel’s policy of welcoming hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa is destroying not just Germany, but all of Europe. Continue reading

Rise of the Superpresident

https://images.thetrumpet.com/570439da!h.355,id.13733,m.fit,w.640

 

Bypassing the checks and balances imposed by America’s founders, the executive branch has come to new heights of power.

Historians may look back on Jan. 14, 2014, as a tipping point in American history. On that day, President Barack Obama urged his cabinet to help him identify ways to advance economic recovery by circumventing the legislature.

“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need,” the president told reporters before his cabinet meeting. “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”

No president since World War ii has openly justified executive overreach by saying that it was necessary to circumvent legislatures because they refused to do what he wanted!

The Worst Foreign-Policy Blunder in American History

The Obama administration has given the number one terrorist-sponsoring nation in the world a clear path to nuclear weapons.

The world became a safer place on January 16, according to United States Secretary of State John Kerry. That day marked the implementation of the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran. The U.S. and the European Union lifted sanctions on Iran and released about $100 billion in frozen assets—and they received nothing in return!

This cataclysmic foreign-policy blunder is the first day of the worst suffering ever on this planet! “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:21-22).

The Iran deal contains bad news and good news. The bad news is that Iran is now capable of triggering World War iii (Daniel 11:40). The good news is that Jesus Christ will return to stop mankind from annihilating itself (Daniel 2:44). Continue reading

The Coming Blood Moons

Note: This post from April 10th of 2014 has now been reposted and will remain on top until the final blood moon has come to pass.

20142015bloodmoonsexplained

No matter what walk of life you come from, there comes a time when something extraordinary needs special attention. This one falls in the way of Bible prophecy.

The following article relates to the four blood moons, or Tetrad, that are coming, all on major Jewish holidays. While this could be explained further into depth here, with our without this feature article, the article itself best describes the upcoming events, the significance, and why it’s more than just a coincidence.

(The article is in its full entirety, minus a few photos, and shall remain at the top of all articles until April 17th, 2014.)

Sunset of the Nation-State

An article too good to post only a piece of:

https://images.thetrumpet.com/55d782de!h.355,id.12232

 

Brace yourself for the most fundamental world change in 200 years, all foretold by your Bible!

If you were to look on the geopolitical horizon, it would appear we are heading toward a dark abyss. The dimming light has been noticeable for awhile, but the bright achievements of the past kept the future illuminated. Yet we are quickly coming to a point when a fundamental change in world order will bring about the worse time on Earth. We will have to pass through the night to get to the dawn.

This geopolitical twilight is partly being precipitated by the demise of the nation-state. The days of empire are returning. The age when people could enjoy the autonomy to govern themselves freely, while enjoying unique freedoms and protection from aggressors, is passing. This is a fundamental change to the established world order.

By examining history, current events and Bible prophecy, this important trend becomes crystal clear.

You need to know where events are leading. This geopolitical shift has everything to do with your future. No matter where you live or what you do, this change will affect your life in a dramatic way! Continue reading

President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal is proof that we are living in Bible’s ‘End of Days,’ former Rep. Michele Bachmann claims

Bachmann, in an interview over the weekend on Jan Markell’s evangelical radio program “Understanding the Times,” said the controversial deal will help bring about the end of the world and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

“All the nations of the world signed an agreement that slams the door against Israel and opened it up to enriching and empowering the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world, whose ultimate goal is the annihilation of the Jewish State,” Bachmann, who unsuccessfully ran for President as a Republican in 2012, said on the program.

Iran Gets a Stranglehold on the Middle East

https://images.thetrumpet.com/54ff341f!h.440,id.11624

This terrorist nation has become the gatekeeper of the Red Sea and the Suez Canal.

Yemen is one of the most strategically important countries in the world. Recent developments there have shocked many people and will have dramatic effects that extend far beyond the Middle East.

In January, the Houthis, a rebel group sponsored and directed by Iran, overthrew the pro-American Yemeni government. After they conquered the capital city of Sanaa, throngs of Houthis began chanting “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” These are exactly the same battle cries that Iran uses. Continue reading

Why China Won’t Stop North Korea

An article from 2009 that hits the nail on the head in explaining the true relationship between China and North Korea. North Korea is a Chinese proxy which serves to keep America distracted from the main threat: China. As time has passed by since this article was written, North Korea has also exponentially increased as a threat toward the United States as well.

 

North Korea has nukes, and China isn’t worried. Something’s not right.

Understandably, America and its allies in Asia are alarmed by Kim Jong Il’s apocalyptic ambitions. Shortly after Pyongyang conducted its nuclear test on May 25, it turned South Korea into a nervous wreck by threatening a “strong military strike,” and saying that its 56-year cease-fire with Seoul no longer applies. Nearby Japan is so alarmed Tokyo is chattering about the need to develop its own nuclear arsenal. Concerns over North Korea’s nuclear belligerence reverberated throughout Asia.

Except in China.
