Gerald Flurry has an article scare mongering once again that the European Union will one day soon (it is always "soon" for them) be transformed into a mighty military power fated to conquer the United States and Britain and take those peoples as slaves just before Christ's return. This time Flurry scare mongers about Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz gaining the presidency of the European Union for six months and exhibits hosted by the Imperial Treasury in Vienna of historical articles including crown jewels associated with the medieval Holy Roman Empire from July 1 till December 31. That's right. Gerald Flurry is trying to make his readers scared over a museum exhibit in Vienna.
Richard Palmer has an article scare mongering that the world has entered "a new nuclear arms race."
Tyrel Schlote has an article bemoaning Canada's legalization of recreational marijuana.
Andrew Müller the McCarthyite has an article scare mongering that China is somehow waging some sort of drug war upon the United States by sending mind altering substances to the nation.
Richard Palmer also has an article scare mongering that China may soon rule the waves the way the British Empire once did.
The Infographic scare mongering that China is seeking to "control world trade" as though world trade could be controlled by any single nation.
Andrew Müller has an article stirring up fear and bitterness toward the alleged future German boogeyman by mentioning some of the economic links that existed between Weimar Germany and the Soviet Union.
Jeremiah Jacques has an article discussing Operation Entebbe, the 1976 Israeli military operation in which 103 hostages held in Uganda were freed. Jacques' article contains interviews with an Israeli soldier who was there and the brother of the sole Israeli soldier who died in the battle, namely Yonatan Netanyahu. (Jacques' article also refers to him as Jonathan.) Regardless of who PCG's 1% are able to interview for their recruitment magazine PCG's reputation among those the truth about this organization will remain as abysmal as ever.
Also it is quite jarring seeing Jeremiah Jacques mention the fallen Yonatan Netanyahu in the same passage as Herbert Armstrong, a man who committed incest with his own daughter for about ten years.
As the historic Entebbe rescue was taking place, world famous educator Herbert W. Armstrong was in the air, en route from California to Italy. After landing in Rome, he learned of Operation Jonathan and said the Israelis had “showed the rest of the world an example of how to deal with this international menace” of terrorism. ... Mr. Armstrong said two months later that Operation Jonathan should teach all people a “supremely important truth” about compromise. (p. 36.)The fallen Yonatan Netanyahu deserves better than to be mentioned in proximity to that infamous sexual predator.
Jorg Mardian has an article discussing the problem of the over consumption of sugar among children, a topic which is often discussed outside of PCG.
Callum Wood has an article discussing the severe drought in Australia.
Joel Hilliker has an article encouraging parents to teach children to enjoy getting their hands dirty in activities like weeding.
Joel Hilliker also scare mongers about free speech is under attack this time citing the recent exclusion of the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from various social media platforms. It seems to escape Hilliker's notice that the first amendment is about restricting the government from censoring opinions, not privately owned companies such as the major social media companies. That is a different issue.
WorldWatch discusses Europol signing an agreement with Israeli police; an alleged bombing attempt in Belgium against the Mujahedin-e Khalq, an organization opposed to the Iranian government which was formerly listed by the US State Department as a terrorist organization from 1997 till 2012; Houthi forces in Yemen attacking to Saudi oil tankers on July 25; hyperinflation in Venezuela; the European Union and Japan signing a free trade agreement; the establishment of a political wing within the Russian army; American airlines changing the way they describe Taiwan due to pressure from China; the deficit under the Republican created budget will have a deficit of over a trillion dollars; and wildfires in the supposedly cursed California. PCG's 1% have for decades shrilly insisted that the State of California is somehow cursed simply because WCG's headquarters happened to be in that state. However if California was listed as its own nation it would be regarded as one of the most prosperous nations on Earth. It is a terribly bitter and twisted thing for PCG's 1% to claim that California is cursed.
SocietyWatch discusses the rise in membership for Democratic Socialists of America once making their predominantly right wing readers fearful and afraid of the left; scare mongers that about 40% of British citizens think a universal income is a good idea; scare mongering about Confucius Institutes in the United States; and scare mongering about more Americans adopting Buddhism. Seemingly religious freedom is unwelcome to PCG when it does not work to their advantage.
Here's a letter from Missouri which reveals that PCG are mainly looking for a right wing leaning audience with their recruitment magazine.
My husband and I were very impressed with your magazine; it is wonderful to see something non-liberal in this world.Here's a letter from Ontario praising PCG's involvement in archaeology in the Holy Land.
I am blessed by the Trumpet magazine, especially in the area of prophecy. I enjoyed reading the article on the Hezekiah seals. Actions speak louder than words, and it was good reading that AC students soiled their hands in making this discovery possible.It does not matter what PCG may happen to help dig up in the Holy Land. Among those who are knowledgeable about PCG among the other COG groups and those no longer associated with Armstrongism PCG's reputation will remain as abysmal as ever. Just a few days ago yet another tragedy associated with PCG has been reported within the COG blogosphere. Digging up some historical artifacts in the ground does nothing to address the severe problems that have been stated regarding PCG.
And so we see that PCG has released yet another issue of their recruitment magazine seeking yet more tithe paying converts. If only their readers could be aware of the problems that have been stated regarding PCG and Armstrongism in general.
