President Biden’s town hall meeting was different from his predecessor, Donald Trump, in tone, language, vision. The Delaware Democrat admitted the United States is facing major problems and shouting “Make America Great Again” and wrapping oneself in the flag isn’t going to ensure this country’s survival. “When I went to this G7, all the major democracies, I walked in …...

Uncle Sam’s bloody handprint in Haiti and Cuba

Coming across television, radio, smart phones and podcasts are news and photos of unrest, suffering in Haiti and Cuba as the United States lies and omits the truth of her intervention in these nations.

We say no to troops and more U.S. evildoing in Haiti

The killing of President Jovenel Moïse of Haiti was shocking in an era where the outright killing of a government leader, even an unpopular one, was thought gone.

Divine guidance: The antidote to widespread death

A year ago the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered words of divine warning about the Covid-19 pandemic, the Donald Trump-led rush to produce experimental vaccines, and the divine hand at work in this global crisis.

Out of control cops can’t hide behind crime problem

It was predictable. With calls for changes in policing and demands for cop accountability, you could foresee the response of out-of-control police departments and their apologists saying nothing can be done to rein in cops because of rising crime problems.

The reason why no other nation...

TRUTH IS BEING REVEALED: DON’T BE MISLED

News coverage and analysis of a yet-to-be-released official federal report on what has been referred to as UFOs has exploded. This summertime blockbuster isn’t a movie and it isn’t even out yet, but we should all be paying attention. Some most important aspects of this “controversy” have already been admitted even as we await the report’s findings. These  forced admissions of the...

The Savage America: No Peace

 “And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”  Revelation, Chapter 14, Verse 20, King James Version Where will the next instance of mass killing happen in America?

We can’t make peace with Satan

The one year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd capped an emotional and, in many ways, a terrifying year of police murders and terrorism at the hands of law enforcement. Just 365 days ago, there was widespread outrage as videotape of then police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on the neck of Mr. Floyd in a Minneapolis street surfaced. Three...
