President Donald Trump made history on June 12 when he met face to face with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator. They held their summit in Singapore.
The President has received both fawning praise and scathing criticism for sitting down with Kim. And, to some extent, both camps have valid points.
But I've been amused at how many commentators have criticized the President for getting no concessions from Kim and for giving up so much in return. I'm not sure if they are duplicitous or merely stupid.
At this point, no one has conceded anything and no one has received anything. All either man offered were intentions. And intentions can change overnight.
These weren't even real negotiations. All this summit did was produce a point from which to start.
The two leaders agreed on four goals they would like to achieve. NOW, the negotiations begin. And it's too early to pronounce victory or defeat for either side.
Of course, that doesn't matter to the mainstream media. They will pounce on any opportunity to deride the President and ignore any impetus to praise him.
But what's new?
However, one event the mainstream media chose to ignore -- and does so annually -- was the recent meeting of the Bilderberg Group in Turin, Italy.
In the past, the press tacitly agreed not to cover the secretive meetings so that the public would not become alarmed at what the world leaders in government and business were discussing. But even the founders and integral leaders have publicly admitted that what they're interested in is a one-world government. For our own good, of course. To save the planet and humanity.
This year, topics on the agenda included artificial intelligence, robotics, genetics, and the inevitable merging of human bodies with machines. In other words, the 150 or so world leaders focused on technologies that will play a crucial role in the Antichrist's future world government.
One of Bilderberg's most prominent proponents, the late David Rockefeller, once noted: "The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."
"Autodetermination" means "self-determination." Fear of "self-determination", what we call democracy, is standard fare among global elites.
A "supernational sovereignty" is fascinating in the light of Bible prophecy. It doesn't mean eliminating the present nations. They would continue to exist. But there would be another governmental authority above those nations.
That's precisely what the Bible describes happening during the Tribulation period.
But during the last two years, new and extreme nationalist movements in many nations have threatened the globalists' plans. As I've noted before, both the "globalists" and the "nationalists" are sure signs of the end times.
According to the Bible, though, the globalists will eventually win. But only temporarily. Not long after Antichrist solidifies his position as the world's leader, the cracks will begin to emerge.
Global government will end with a world war of unprecedented horror. We usually refer to that war simply as Armageddon.
There's a war going on in the United Kingdom right now. In fact, it's a fight for survival. Britain's survival.
As the Muslim immigrant population of the UK has skyrocketed, so have certain unpleasant realities that invariably accompany the infiltration by Islam.
One of those alarming developments is the introduction and dramatic increase in "child grooming gangs." I've covered this Muslim phenomenon on the show before.
Several cities in Britain have uncovered and prosecuted gangs of Muslim men who cultivate relationships with young children and then later lure them into child and sex-trafficking. In one city alone, more than 1,400 young girls were lured away or outright kidnapped and held as slaves, then sold as sex objects to other men.
Thousands of British children have been abducted or lured into bondage. Worse, there has been a sinister cover-up by the British government for the sake of political correctness. The British newspaper, The Mirror, called it a "Conspiracy of Silence."
But one right-wing activist has not been silent. Because he is the subject of continual death threats and fatwas from the Muslim community, he goes by the pseudonym of Tommy Robinson.
Tommy has written books, made television appearances, organized rallies and marches, and produced news stories and documentaries for international organizations. His constant call is for Britain to wake up and realize that they are being conquered from within by the mushrooming Muslim immigrant population.
In his words, he is fighting the "Islamization" of Britain and Europe.
In late May, Tommy was arrested while standing on the public sidewalk outside the courthouse in Leeds. He was live-streaming on his cell phone the arrival of several defendants in the "child grooming gang" trial that was in progress.
He was not in the courtroom. He was not confronting the defendants. He was merely live-streaming their arrivals.
But the British authorities and their "conspiracy of silence" apparently felt that it could incite British citizens to take action.
So they arrested Tommy. But they did more. In a matter of six hours, Tommy was arrested, tried without sufficient due process or representation, and sentenced to 13 months in jail.
Further, the judge then issued a gag order prohibiting any news organization in Britain from reporting on the sentence.
Tommy was remanded to a minimum-security facility. Then a couple of days ago, he was moved to a much more hardcore facility where he is housed with the general population. The problem is that the population is predominately Muslim. Further, the reputation of the prison is that the Muslim inmates are so violent that they actually run the facility.
Reports are that Tommy is being harangued and threatened hourly by the Muslim inmates. A British imam has even issued a fatwa for Tommy's death.
In 2013, The New York Times reported, "Britain has a long tradition of a free, inquisitive press." Then it ominously added, "Unlike the United States, Britain has no constitutional guarantee of press freedom."
A "long tradition" can be easily erased by a short "judicial ruling." And it has.
Tommy Robinson has consistently warned Britain about "fake refugees who have no intention of integration and no intention of assimilation." In today's United Kingdom, that's more than controversial. It's blasphemy against the new god of political correctness.
Whether you approve of Tommy Robinson's methods or history, please pray for him that he will survive this malicious and targeted persecution. He is, unfortunately, a voice crying in the wilderness that all of Europe and even the United States needs to heed.
In the last few days, the world has been shocked by the suicides of the designer Kate Spade and the celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.
Sandwiched between the two tragic events, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released some startling new statistics: From 1999 to 2016, suicides in America rose almost 30%. It is now the 10th leading cause of death in the US. There is a suicide every 12 minutes in our nation. In 2016, more than 45,000 Americans took their own lives.
People are looking for escape -- in a bottle, in a syringe, or in death. But what are they trying to escape? Despair. Hopelessness. Meaninglessness.
Not only is there an epidemic of suicide, there is an epidemic of despair in America.
On this week's program, I will share with you some of my thoughts on why this is happening and the only hope that those in despair truly have.
