Guest: Soeren Kern, geo-political analyst, Gatestone Institute

Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; take warning, O judges of the earth.  Worship the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling.  Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, for His wrath may soon be kindled.  How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!  Psalm 2:10-12

Memorial Day note:  A heartfelt “thank you” to members and families of those who serve in our military.  We honor you for your sacrifice, and most especially to those who have lost loved ones in the defense of our country. 

With Donald Trump as president, a new era of American standing is being projected around the globe.  Whereas former President Obama took a mostly tentative, even apologetic stance on America’s role, President Trump embarked on his first trip overseas to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Europe believing a muscular America leads to greater stability and prosperity.

Before he left, the pitchforks of the media and his political opponents were being jabbed at him, with frenzied allegations of collusion with Russia in the presidential election and wrongdoing in his dealings with former FBI director Jim Comey.  The “impeachment” word is already being tossed about.

What is the significance of Trump’s trip to the Middle East and Europe?  Is it possible to untangle all the allegations back home, separating fact from fiction?

This Memorial Day Weekend on The Christian Worldview, Soeren Kern, a geo-political analyst with the Gatestone Institute and a keynote speaker at our Fall Conference September 15-16, 2017, will join us to discuss these questions.  Columnist Robert Knight of the Washington Times will join us as well.
