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. His warning last July 4 in “The Criterion,” a near three-hour message, was directed at the U.S. president, global political and religious leaders, the world...

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. But what does rising crime during a pandemic have to do with Derek Chauvin kneeling on the neck of George...

What about justice in America?

When President Biden met with Russian Vladimir Putin the subject of “misdeeds” by the former KBG agent were blasted in the American media. When Mr. Putin responded by questioning American respect for human rights and illegal actions on the world stage, the mainstream media started to howl. “Russian President Vladimir Putin displayed his ‘classic’ whataboutism play at the news conference...

America’s Deep Decline

“The responsibility of the well-being of the people of this nation rests primarily on the shoulders of the leadership. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to us that neither justice nor peace shall come to the nations of the earth until the 400-year-old problem of Black people in America has been solved with justice. 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? That question haunts the United States as almost daily somewhere in this country,...

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...

There will be blood: America is coming out of the Middle East

Bloody battles have exploded again with Israeli atrocities against Palestinians, but where will this end? The bombings, killings, protests and slaughter of outmatched Palestinians is continuing as Israelis exert deadly force and might backed by the arms, the money and the support of the United States.  In a conversation, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, patriarch of the Nation of Islam, once spoke...

Don’t let federal charges fool you; justice remains far off

News that convicted murderer Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis officer, and three other officers were federally indicted for violating the civil rights of George Floyd, is significant. It’s not justice. We must not celebrate—and don’t make more of these charges filed by the Justice Dept. than what they are. The world saw a Black man killed as a smirking cop and ex-officers...

Our strongest and truest cry: We charge genocide!

And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. Isaiah 28:18  Can a murderous mind be retrained to deliver freedom, justice and equality to the object of its derision, scorn and hatred? Emphatically not. With the May 3 funeral...
