The Washington Times was founded in 1982 by a certain controversial religious movement originating from Korea. This religious movement from Korea teaches many things contrary to PCG's teachings. It has often been described by ex-members and non-members as a cult. Both Rick Ross and Steven Hassan have much information regarding this controversial religious movement originating from Korea.
This link between The Washington Times and this particular religious movement from Korea is never mentioned by PCG.
Although The Washington Times is often viewed as leaning far to the right PCG's heir apparent Stephen Flurry once described this newspaper as a "mainstream" publication.
The Trumpet Weekly is a news brief including digests of our top articles from theTrumpet.com, along with significant excerpts from mainstream sources like the Wall Street Journal, Reuters and the Washington Times. (Stephen Flurry, December 29, 2012.)Below are a collection of instances in which PCG quotes The Washington Times. There are many more instances of PCG citing The Washington Times but this list should suffice to prove that PCG trusts The Washington Times despite its ownership by that particular controversial religious movement from Korea. PCG has never mentioned this connection regarding this far right newspaper.
Some of the articles are written by Stephen Flurry, Brad MacDonald, Mark Jenkins, Joel Hilliker, the late Ron Fraser, Robert Morley, Jeremiah Jacques and Andrew Müller.
Cal Thomas wrote in the March 8, 2000, Washington Times, ... “THE FOUNDERS NEVER INTENDED THE COURTS TO BE SUPREME. THEIR INTENTION WAS THAT THE LAW, ROOTED IN OBJECTIVE AND UNCHANGING TRUTH, WOULD BE PREEMINENT.”
Law scholars today don’t believe the Constitution was “ROOTED IN OBJECTIVE AND UNCHANGING TRUTH”—that is, they don’t believe our founders established the rule of law. But that’s just what the founders did. And now most lawyers and judges reject their foundational work. Our views today reflect a deadly degeneration into lawlessness! (Gerald Flurry, No Freedom Without Law, 2001, Chapter 3, p. 30. [These words are in pages 35-36 of the 2007 version of that booklet.])
The Washington Times reported a secret understanding reached between Pakistan and China to permit Chinese naval vessels to dock at Gwadar. (Gwadar Port Underway, July 2002.)
According to the May 23, 2004, Washington Times, for every 100 children born in the year 2000, 60 of them will spend part of their childhood in a broken family. (Divorce’s Trickle-Down Effect, January 2005.)
Timothy Roemer, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana, said, “There is not only a poisonous partisan attitude in Washington, but it seems to be paralyzing Congress from acting on some of the most important national security, economic and energy-related issues facing Americans. … It is more divisive than I have seen in my 20 years in Washington” (Washington Times, June 27). ...
Robert Reischauer, former director of the Congressional Budget Office, pointed out the part the media plays in this. “There has been a steady deterioration in the level of discourse and the standards of politeness that are used in discussion. The participants don’t seem to care what their opponents think of them as politicians and individuals,” he said. “Part of it quite frankly is attributable to the media. To glean the attention of the media, you have to shout louder and have more extreme views” (Washington Times, June 27). (Brad MacDonald, Crippling Division, December 2005.)
Surprisingly, this negative rate occurred against a backdrop of record-high seasonally adjusted earnings of $10.3 trillion. Out of that amount, $1.2 trillion was paid in personal taxes, leaving $9 trillion in disposable income. But of that, Americans spent $9.14 trillion—$58.8 billion more than they earned (Washington Times, September 4). In other words, for every $100 earned, Americans spent $100.65. (Squanderville, December 2005.)
Some, like the Washington Times, have said the welfare state in New Orleans helped create the anarchy and chaos we saw after the storm. If that’s true, we should really sit up and take notice. New Orleans isn’t all that unique among U.S. cities. (Mark Jenkins, Caring for the Poor, December 2005.)
President Chavez has already signed deals to purchase long-range defense radars and a modern communication satellite from Beijing. The Venezuelan defense minister has signed a contract for three mobile air-defense radar systems, which will replace U.S. systems. More than simply providing technology for Venezuela, the Jamestown Foundation in Washington points out that these purchases will make Venezuela dependent on Chinese technology: “We can anticipate that Chavez will soon be buying Chinese weapons” (Washington Times, Nov. 20, 2005). (Mark Jenkins, China’s Quiet War, April 2006.)
On July 24, the Washington Times reported Cuba is drilling for oil just 60 miles off the Florida coast. Cuba, a nation the United States has embargoed for the last 45 years, may actually end up pumping oil from sovereign U.S. territory. (Cuban Oil to Break U.S. Embargo?, October 2006.)
U.S. experts familiar with the case say “the compromise of the b-2 technology is extremely damaging because it will give China key secrets on the bomber” (Washington Times, Nov. 23, 2006). (B-2 Technology Not So Stealth, February 2007.)
Reporting for the Washington Times, Diana West stated, “At the crux of the Muslim council’s document is a call for special treatment for Britain’s Muslim students that is so special as to reorient the entire British system according to Islamic law” (February 23). (Sharia Law for British Schools?, May 2007.)
The February 28 Washington Times reported on a case in Germany, again involving the state contesting the parents’ rights to have a say in the education of the children to whom they, not the state, gave birth. Earlier in the month, a Bavarian teenager was taken from her parents and institutionalized for being home-schooled. Further, a year ago in Hamburg, a home-schooling father of six was sentenced to a week in prison and a fine of $2,000 for the same “crime.” Last September, a Paderborn mother of 12 was jailed for two weeks. ...
In America, certain liberal politicians and lawyers are claiming that United Nations conventions are “‘customary international law’ and should be considered part of American jurisprudence” (op. cit., Washington Times; emphasis ours). Article 29 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child declares that the state has an inherent right to direct the education of children. (Schooling in State’s Hands, May 2007.)
A Washington Times editorial read, “Zimbabwe is a country where, two years ago, the government made refugees of approximately 1.5 million of its citizens in ‘Operation Clear the Trash,’ which bulldozed ‘unlawful’ town[s] and cities…This is a country whose opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, is arrested repeatedly and beaten by regime forces for the ‘crime’ of speaking out and holding political rallies. Now, this regime’s representatives are entrusted with an organization whose inspiring principles include the following: ‘Human beings are at the center of concerns for sustainable development’” (May 19). (Nation of Ruin to Take Key Post, July 2007.)
The Washington Times reported that in May, the Border Patrol caught over 300 aliens and 600 pounds of marijuana in a 3-mile stretch over 10 days (June 19). In response to the agency’s activities within the operation, illegals set at least five fires in an attempt to burn agents out of an observation post. (Illegals Set Fire to Border, August-September 2007.)
History shows that economic primacy generally underpins military dominance and national power. The unraveling of the American economy over the past three weeks reminds us of that reality, explains Victor David Hanson, in today’s Washington Times.
Last week, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin accused Ukraine of aiding Georgia by providing weapons and military personnel during Russia’s invasion of Georgia in August. The Washington Times wrote, “The timing of Russia’s statements underlined Moscow’s drive to increase its leverage in the neighboring former Soviet republic of Ukraine.” ... Ukraine is divided over the nato membership bid backed by their pro-Western leader Viktor Yushchenko. According to the Washington Times, “Russia’s use of force in Georgia has heightened nervousness among many Ukrainians about their larger neighbor, whose leaders are vehemently opposing Mr. Yushchenko’s efforts to bring Ukraine into NATO. The Kremlin has warned NATO against granting membership to Ukraine or Georgia.” (Stephen Flurry, The Weekend Web, October 5, 2008.)
The American superpower’s next move [regarding pirates operating in Somalia], the Washington Times informed us on Friday, is to seek help from the United Nations. And even with the UN taking the lead, a senior administration official in Washington said we should not assume that such action would necessarily involve U.S. forces. (Joel Hilliker and Brad MacDonald, The Weekend Web, December 14, 2008.)
Michael Yon, writing for the Washington Times, says that just like the previous administration, “Mr. Obama is trying to win the AfPak war on the cheap while minimizing political risks.” He concludes: “Unless we speed up progress in AfPak, we are on the road to a slow, painful failure. If we are going to fight with half-measures, we should pull stakes and come home. Despite the backslapping going around, with Pakistan ready to lap up billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars while corrupt Afghan officials are excited to see more billions flying in their direction, the pungent reality is that the latest ‘plan’ is a plan to fail.” (Joel Hilliker, U.S. to Europe: Please, Join Our Losing Cause, April 8, 2009.)
In conformity with the spirit of our times, U.S. Foreign Service officers and their superiors are not allowing negative news about U.S. allies to reach Washington. The Washington Times reports....
The resigning officer, who asked the Washington Times not to use his name, said that one ambassador had “flat out banned any ‘bad-news’ cables, and made it known at all levels that we were only to produce ‘good-news stories’ about our [host] country.” The host country was a U.S. ally. (Jeremiah Jacques, U.S. envoys only reporting the good news, September 20, 2009.)
Although Mr. Netanyahu was merely restating his previous position, the timing “threatened to undermine Mr. Mitchell’s latest efforts to restart peace talks,” wrote the Washington Times, which also stated that “The status of East Jerusalem is the most explosive issue dividing Israelis and Palestinians.”
According to the Washington Times, “Mr. Obama issued a surprisingly pessimistic assessment of peacemaking prospects, saying the United States couldn’t force its will on Israelis and Palestinians if they weren’t interested in making the compromises necessary to end their decades-old conflict.” (Stephen Flurry, Netanyahu stands firm on Jerusalem, April 25, 2010.)
The proposed deal involves Iran swapping low-enriched uranium for a higher-enriched uranium from Turkey for a medical research reactor. The deal, however, allows Iran to retain enough of a uranium stockpile to build a bomb. The Washington Times summarized it this way: “[T]he nuclear deal gives Tehran the diplomatic cover needed to pretend it is cooperating with the international community while nonetheless pursuing its nuclear ambitions.”
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has “outmaneuvered” President Barack Obama, says the Washington Times, which noted that Mr. Obama’s diplomatic overtures in recent months have resulted in just one thing—a resurgent Iran. Over the last year or so, Iran has tripled its stockpile of enriched uranium, purchased key weapons components, broadened control over its proxies and strengthened its influence over Lebanon, Syria and Iraq. “In short, the vacuum of U.S. power in the Middle East is being filled by Tehran’s expansionist Islamic radicalism,” wrote the Times. (Ahmadinejad outmaneuvers Obama, May 23, 2010.)
America’s weakness is on clear display according to retired Admiral James Lyons, who wrote a piece for the Washington Times last week. “President Obama’s growing image of ineffectiveness and weakness” is evident both at home and abroad, Lyons wrote. ...
Sixty-two percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track according to a recent survey. The rest of the world can see this too. “Signs of instability amid a growing perception of American weakness are everywhere,” the Washington Times wrote earlier this month. “Allies and friends are beginning to hedge their bets, distancing themselves from us.” ...
“America is heading toward a colossal defeat in Afghanistan,” wrote the Washington Times. “Unless there is a dramatic change in policy and leadership, the United States will suffer the most calamitous military setback in its history—one that will mark the end of the American moment, the loss of superpower status in the eyes of the world.” (American weakness on full display, June 27, 2010.)
“America has death camps,” wrote Jeffrey Kuhner in the Washington Times on Thursday, referring to America’s abortion clinics. ... Kuhner illustrated how this “state-sanctioned infanticide” is symptomatic of our national sickness.... (America’s ‘death camps’, January 23, 2011.)
The Washington Times called the Egypt-Israel peace treaty “the cornerstone of stability for the Middle East.” ...
Jeffrey Kuhner wrote in the Washington Times that losing Egypt as an American ally would “be one of the most dramatic and devastating foreign-policy defeats for the United States in decades. It also will be a significant victory for the forces of radical Islam—a blow that threatens to undermine American interests across the Middle East.”
Kuhner wrote that if Egypt goes Islamic, it will “reverberate across the entire region. The balance of power will tip irreversibly into the hands of Muslim hard-liners.” (Muslim Brotherhood wants to revoke peace pact with Israel, February 5, 2011.)
“The Obama administration has turned down a plea from Syria’s democratic opposition to step up diplomatic pressure on President Bashar Assad, who has violently repressed peaceful anti-government protests,” wrote the Washington Times on Thursday. (Turning a blind eye toward Syria, April 17, 2011.)
“While every individual has a different tolerance for the drug,” the Washington Times reports, “experts agree that ingesting more than 500 mg a day can result in anxiety, irritability, headaches, sleeplessness, diarrhea and other health problems” (January 17). (Stephen Flurry, A Better Pick-Me-Up Than Coffee, March 2012.)
A piece in the Washington Times caught my attention this week. It centered on a subject that the Trumpet has commented on from time to time—the emasculation of men and boys by Anglo-Saxon media. ... let me quote some insightful text from that Washington Times article (August 1).... (Ron Fraser, The Descent of the Anglo-Saxon Male, August 6, 2012.)
The Trumpet Weekly is a news brief including digests of our top articles from theTrumpet.com, along with significant excerpts from mainstream sources like the Wall Street Journal, Reuters and the Washington Times. (Stephen Flurry, December 29, 2012.)
Here is what Judge Andrew Napolitano wrote in the Washington Times: “Mr. Obama has argued that he can kill Americans whose deaths he believes will keep us all safer, without any due process whatsoever. No law authorizes that. His attorney general has argued that the president’s careful consideration of each target and the narrow use of deadly force are an adequate and constitutional substitute for due process. No court has ever approved that.” Napolitano points out that this practice violates state and federal laws, executive orders prohibiting assassinations, language in the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution. (Gerald Flurry, The War Against the Constitution, April 2013.)
Here is what Judge Andrew Napolitano wrote in the Washington Times: “Mr. Obama has argued that he can kill Americans whose deaths he believes will keep us all safer, without any due process whatsoever. No law authorizes that. His attorney general has argued that the president’s careful consideration of each target and the narrow use of deadly force are an adequate and constitutional substitute for due process. No court has ever approved that” (Feb. 7, 2013). (Andrew Müller, Why Does the Environmental Protection Agency Need Its Own SWAT Team?, February 2014.)
“The battle of wills between Beijing and Washington over a China-sponsored development bank for Asia is turning into a rout,” wrote the Washington Times. “The Obama administration has found itself isolated and embarrassed as its top allies lined up this week to join the proposed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.” (Robert Morley, China’s New Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and U.S. Blowback, April 3, 2015.)
Here are the articles referenced on today’s show.... Washington Times: “121 murders attributed to illegals released by Obama administration” (Stephen Flurry, Trumpet Daily, Trumpet Daily: Police Chief: Officers Under Attack Should Kill the Assailants, June 22, 2015.)
The world essentially closed ranks and turned its back on America. “The battle of wills between Beijing and Washington over a China-sponsored development bank for Asia is turning into a rout,” wrote the Washington Times. “[T]he Obama administration has found itself isolated and embarrassed as its top allies lined up this week to join the proposed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank” (March 18). And sadly, it was America’s most important ally that led the defection. (Robert Morley, Deathblow to the Dollar, July 2015.)
The United States currently spends about $220 billion per year on interest. The Washington Times reports that payments on the national debt are expected to rise from around $220 billion to $755 billion in the next 10 years. It could be much worse than that if interest rates go up. (Stephen Flurry, Christmas Comes Early in Washington, D.C., November 10, 2015.)
On September 16, the Washington Times reported, “Three days after John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, U.S. Intelligence officials told President Lyndon B. Johnson that they had confirmed that assassin Lee Harvey Oswald had recently traveled to Mexico City to visit both the Cuban and Soviet embassies, according to a half-century-old briefing memo, declassified on Wednesday.” (Gerald Flurry, Cuba: A Threat to America, November-December 2015.)
And so this list of quotes come to an end.
PCG trusts The Washington Times and has never bothered to note to their readers who happens to own this newspaper.
