After his testimony following the conclusion of his report, “Mueller” left the air. What happened? [12:42] Forgetting 9/11 (8 minutes) A retracted tweet from the New York Times said that on 9/11 “airplanes took aim” at the twin towers. CNN explained that right-wingers are actually America’s biggest terrorist threat. And remember all the New York City police officers who sacrificed their lives that day? Now those officers are called racist and get buckets of water dumped on their heads when they try to do their jobs. Has America really learned the lessons from the September 11 attacks? [20:42] The Real Abundant Life (8 minutes) A new study found that premarital sex leads to less happy and less stable marriages. These findings are in line with what the Bible teaches about true morality. God gave man an Instruction Book on how to achieve happiness. If you follow His rules, you’ll find the way to true, abundant life! [30:38] What Impresses God? (20 minutes) Our society is filled with vanity and narcissism. God says He hates a “proud look.” So, what does God love? “[T]o this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word” (Isaiah 66:2). In this segment, I talk about the attitude that impresses God. [51:04] E-mails (4 minutes)

Visit: www.thetrumpet.com/stephen-flurry [00:30] 18 Years on From 9/11 (10 minutes) Today marks the 18th anniversary of 9/11—the worst terrorist attack America has ever experienced. This attack prompted America to declare war on terrorism—a war that is unwinnable. [10:37] The Whole Head Is Sick (12 minutes) In my father’s booklet The Last Hour, he writes that we are in the last hour, about to experience “the worst turmoil and violence ever on Earth!” And why? Because, as God says in Isaiah 1:5, “the whole head is sick.” [22:33] A Common Military Culture (10 minutes) While America and Britain turn a blind eye to the rest of the world, Europe is calling on Germany to unite Europe militarily. As Bible prophecy indicates, this will lead to a 10-nation European superpower dominated by German power. [32:43] Dating God’s Way (22 minutes) Dating God’s way is a lost art in today’s anti-family society. In this segment, we discuss the God-ordained laws of dating.
The DUP has publicly rejected proposals for a Northern Ireland-only backstop amid speculation at Westminster that Boris Johnson is considering an all-Ireland solution for the Border after Brexit. But with different shades of opinion within Arlene Foster’s party behind the scenes, is there room for manoeuvre? Could the DUP sell the idea of a ‘soft’ backstop to its supporters? Belfast-based political commentator and former UUP director of communications, Alex Kane, and Irish Times northern correspondent Freya McClements, join Hugh and political editor Pat Leahy to discuss.
