Overview of the May 2016 Issue of PCG's Philadelphia Trumpet

The latest issue of PCG's recruitment magazine, The Philadelphia Trumpet, is now out.

Let us see what they have to say.

The issue contains an inflammatory cover made by Gary Dorning trying to stir up resentment and fear of President Obama. PCG leans far to the right in regards to politics so they wish Obama was not president.

This issue has a circulation of 280,230. The April issue's circulation was 285,193. For March it was 287,175. Circulation seems to be going down at the moment.

Gerald Flurry has a personal article scare mongering about Germany again. He warns direly that the anti-immigrant right are on the rise in Germany. It is insinuated that the refugee crisis will lead to Karl-Theodor zu Guttenburg to rise to power and become Chancellor. PCG has constantly insisted that he will rise to power in Germany since 2009 with the insinuation that he will become the dictator who will conquer the United States.

Stephen Flurry and Richard Palmer has an accompanying article scare mongering about the recent electoral gains made by the euroskeptic party, Alternative for Germany (AfD).

Gerald Flurry has an article scare mongering that Germany and Russia will ally with each other against the United States in an alliance similar to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. He accuses a German company of helping to train Russian soldiers.

Dennis Leap has an article telling people not to look at computer screens too often. He mentions that he attended schools from 1957 to 1975.

Jorg Mardian has a little article discussing obesity.

Andrew Müller the neo-McCarthyite has an article direly intoning that President Obama is too powerful and makes the inflammatory accusation that he is the opposite of what the founders of the United States wanted.

Andrew Müller has an accompanying article condemning Trump by saying he would simply maintaining centralized power for the office of the presidency.

Gerald Flurry has an article once again demonizing the Black Lives Matter protest movement as enacting a "federal power grab." The fact that African Americans have been gunned down seems of little concern to Flurry and the rest of PCG's 1%. What seems to get under his skin instead is African Americans choosing to be politically active in ways he disapproves of. This time he tries to slur the protest movement by citing the Black Panther Party and an article written by a student in California that Joel Hilliker discussed in a previous article, as may be seen here and here. The section concerning that student's article is largely lifted from an earlier article by Joel Hilliker.

At one point Flurry states the following:
Not many other nations are ruled by minority groups—not even in Africa! Does [the student in California] believe he would be better off in any African nation? (p. 24.)
The infographic discusses the rise of xenophobic, euroskeptic right wing parties in Europe.

Gerald Flurry has an article lambasting Pope Francis by accusing him of meddling in American politics citing his discussion of immigration and criticism of capitalism.

Andrew Müller has an accompanying article insisting that the problem of African Americans getting shot by police personnel is overblown.

Joel Hilliker has an interview with British euroskeptic activist Rodney Atkinson. PCG has often talked with Rodney Atkinson ever since they first came into contact with each other in 1999 due to their shared opposition to NATO's intervention in the Kosovo War.

Joel Hilliker has a little article advising his readers to eat whole foods.

Robert Morley has an article condemning Ontario's proposal to introduce guaranteed basic income.

WorldWatch mentions the European Union's agreement with Turkey to return some of the refugees; the severe situation in Afghanistan; Russia's gains from its intervention in Syria to prop up the Assad regime; a report asserting French troops are present in Libya; the establishment of a train route from China to Iran; a Chinese company's attempt to purchase the Chicago Stock Exchange; and a condemnation of President Obama's visit to Cuba.

SocietyWatch bemoans the supposed over diagnosis of children having ADHD and the use of methamphetamine in Australia.

There are letters. Here's one letter from Georgia from a person who has completely swallowed PCG's line on Iran despite evidence to the contrary.
Mr. Flurry, I believe that you are 100 percent right about Iran and its evil intentions. Why can’t our leaders see it? Is it because of their greed and lust for power? I think so. Mankind has to live through its darkest day before it can see its brightest.
Here's one from Australia from a person with the same surname as PCG's Kieran Underwood and Danielle Underwood concerning Jacques' account of an Indian man who carved a road through a mountain over twenty-two years.
What a beautiful and inspiring story of sacrifice, service and giving! Thanks for bringing it to us. Indeed there are many lessons for us to learn from this account of one man and his dedication to a goal firmly fixed in his mind to achieve.
Here's one letter from Columbia from one who seems to have accept PCG's ideas about the future European dictator and the final Pope.
It is such a great deception that many want a leader and a government like the bloody Charlemagne.... When it arises, the pope will give his blessing. They will cause the death of billions. What is the spirit that guides them? 
The letters page contains advertising for Dennis Leap's radio show on PCG's radio station, KPCG. Recently Leap has been discussing The Old Man and The Sea by Ernest Hemingway. 

In this issue the editors are listed as Gerald Flurry, Stephen Flurry, Joel Hilliker, Brad MacDonald, Dennis Leap, Robert Morley, Jeremiah Jacques and Phillip Nice.

The back page contains advertising for PCG's radio station, KPCG, which features photos of Gerald Flurry, Stephen Flurry, Joel Hilliker, Dennis Leap, Jeremiah Jacques, Brad MacDonald, Robert Morley, Brent Nagtegaal, Richard Palmer, Andrew Müller and Anthony Chibarirwe.

And so we see that PCG's leaders have produced yet another issue made to get more recruits to join PCG and to keep PCG members convinced that God is with PCG alone and that PCG is worthy of receiving the three tithes.
