“What is the future of America? What is the future of this present world? What preparations have to be made if you want to live beyond the fall of this world?

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered a major address at the Nation of Islam’s headquarters Mosque Maryam on July 21, 2019. He spoke on a wide range of issues including President Donald Trump’s desire to run the USA as a king, possible war with the Islamic Republic of Iran and guidance for Black America in these perilous times.
I thank Allah (God) so much for remembering His promise to Abraham, that his seed would be a stranger in a land that is not theirs and they would serve a strange people in that strange land who would afflict them for 400 years; but He said to Abraham: “After that time I will come, and I will judge that nation which they shall serve, and afterwards shall they come out with great substance.” That’s a great promise—and Allah (God) never breaks His promise.
Black people have wondered, “Why, God, have You allowed us to suffer like this? What have we done to deserve what You have caused to be put upon us?” And the scripture teaches of Jesus: When he met the man born blind, and the disciples asked him, “Who did sin? Did he or his parents?,” Jesus answered, “Neither did his parents sin, nor did he sin. He is born blind, that the works of God may be manifest in him.” (John 9:1-3) In other words, his suffering was a part of a well-thought-out plan; that Satan would have his (Abraham’s) seed and put the seed into such a condition that only He (God) could get them out of it. In essence, we were put in this condition so that the people who have not known God in these last 6,000 years of the rule of a strange people: that our rise on The Call of God when He comes would make Him known to a world that has not known Him. They know of Him—we talk about “God”; but in that day, His people are going to learn about Him, and have a personal relationship with Him. And as the scripture teaches (Ezekiel 37:13): “When (not if, “when”) I have raised you out of your graves, then shall you know that I, The Lord, am God, and beside Me there is no Saviour!”
I greet you, my dear brothers and sisters, thanking Allah for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, this great master teacher that I have been blessed to be taught by. Today, we want to know him better, and we want to know Al Mahdi, his Teacher, better.
Keys for enduring trials
Sometimes in a basketball season, you have to have someone do an extraordinary thing to seal the knowledge that he or she is “the best.” You can’t claim to be the best until you have shown your prowess and defeated all the rest.
God allowed Pharaoh to become great: He allowed Pharaoh to be looked upon by the people as a god beside God; so, He had to show on His coming that He, in fact, was God. He was so much of a God that He took one of the slaves and made him a god over Pharaoh, to declare to the world that the one that He made a god over Pharaoh was one of millions that He would bring back to where they originally were.
I have been among you a long time … and the scripture says you would treat me “like a lovely song”—like it was with David. The scripture teaches that he had “a lovely-sounding voice, and he played well on an instrument.” But the people: Even though they loved to hear him, they hardly ever did what he taught them; but after he was gone from among them, they really recognized that a prophet of God was among them.
Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, lived for 62 1/2 years. Do you know that I have been preaching this word in America for all the years of The Prophet’s life? Sometimes people, when they walked by Noah, they laughed at him and mocked him. I said, “Poor man! A prophet of God was building an ‘ark’ (a ship, a boat) in a desert where it doesn’t rain.” When I think on Noah, I’m so inspired, because I can imagine this poor man, with his poor little family around him, whispering: “I think daddy is … I think he’s ‘off’ a little bit. Don’t tell him I said this, but for him to be talking about a flood, water coming—and we haven’t seen water in a long, long time. …” That poor man, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, taught for 150 years. So, people want to know: “Well, why do you keep saying the same thing over and over again, Farrakhan? I heard this yesterday. I heard it the day before. I heard it 10 years ago, I’ve been listening to you. … When is the ‘new’ message coming?”
I say, “Why do you think you deserve a new message when you have never acted on the old message that you received?” When a man stays this long on a post teaching his people, either he is crazy, or, he believes so thoroughly in what he is teaching, and he knows the results of what he is teaching, that it doesn’t bother him (the insults of the people and their mockery of him), because all the prophets knew they would be the winner in the end. When they came, the prophets threatened the people. Not that they had the power to fulfill the threat, but the word of God always is accompanied from the mouth of a prophet with a threat. The people, after they heard the threat so many times, said: “Why don’t you bring on us what you threaten us with?” The prophets would say, “Wait. I, too, am waiting.”

Protecting rights or profits? NFL owners on bended knee
Generally speaking, sports are seen as apolitical. Certainly, professional athletes and team owners have their own individual views and embrace political ideologies that don’t always align, but both parties can usually find a common goal in their desire to compete and win for their organizations, cities and fans.
Since being elected president, it’s become almost a weekly occurrence that Donald Trump says something that is attention grabbing that gets people talking. Mr. Trump has a knack—and a penchant—for getting under people’s skin with his abrasive rhetoric that has driven the wedge in the relationship between Black and White people in America, even deeper.
Since taking a knee during the National Anthem more than a year ago, Colin Kaepernick has consistently been on the radar of Donald Trump, and even more so now that athletes in the NFL, and in other sports leagues, have begun taking a knee in support of the movement started by Mr. Kaepernick.
At a September reelection rally for Alabama Senator Luther Strange, Mr. Trump took another shot at Mr. Kaepernick, and others, in front of an all-White audience that seemed to hang on his every word.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son-of-a-bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired!’ ” Mr. Trump said to rousing applause. “You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s gonna say, ‘That guy disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it. They don’t know it. They’re friends of mine, many of them. They don’t know it. They’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in the country.”
Buffalo Bills fullback Mike Tolbert leaves the field after working out prior to an NFL football game against the Denver Broncos, Sept. 24, in Orchard Park, N.Y.
The very next day, in a series of tweets, Mr. Trump attacked Stephen Curry, star of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors basketball team. It is customary, after a team wins a championship, to visit the White House and deliver a personalized jersey to the sitting president. However, Mr. Curry has publicly stated on several occasions that because he does not agree with the politics of Donald Trump, causing the president to rescind the invitation via Twitter—the very same day that as a team, the Warriors were planning to discuss whether or not they wanted to make the trip.
Both incidents created an uproar within the sports world—as well as the White House recently calling for the firing of Black female ESPN sports personality Jemele Hill for tweets calling Mr. Trump a White supremacist.
But the president’s Alabama tirade seemed to ignite special, widespread criticism, a call for solidarity with players under the hashtag #TakeTheKnee. Despite outward shows of togetherness, the question must be asked: What are we showing solidarity for? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, in a statement regarding Mr. Trump’s comments, called them “divisive.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers, coached by Mike Tomlin, a Black man, stayed in the locker room while the National Anthem was being sung prior to their game against the Chicago Bears. Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins, locked arms with his players on the sidelines on Sunday as a show of support. The irony here was 28 of the NFL’s 32 owners, all donated money to the Trump campaign, including Mr. Snyder who gave $1 million initially, and another $100,000 after Mr. Trump won.
DeMaurice Smith, the Black executive director of the NFL Players Union, said, “This union will never back down when it comes to protecting the constitutional rights of our players as citizens, as well as their safety as men who compete in a game that exposes them to great risks.”
Farrakhan: I know what to say to modern pharaoh
CHICAGO (FinalCall.com)—Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered passionate and insightful answers during an interview with popular afternoon radio host Cliff Kelley on the city’s Black talk radio station. Min. Farrakhan covered an array of topics in the dialogue with the show host and in questions phoned in from listeners.
He covered America’s crisis and challenges the administration of President Donald Trump faces, what any possible meetings with the president might look like, the future for Black people in the United States and the final war America will face prior to her prophesized doom.
“First, I don’t know anything about an invitation to speak with Mr. Trump. I do know that in the Holy Qur’an, as well as in the Bible, God gives a directive both to Moses and Aaron. And he says to the both of them, ‘Go you both to Pharaoh. I have given you both an authority,’ ” said the Minister in response to a question from a caller. Talk of such a meeting surfaced a week earlier when Omarosa Manigault, a White House aide and Black woman, told WVON-AM morning show hosts she would be open to meeting with Min. Farrakhan. She was responding to a question from a show host.
“I think that any in your audience would know that I have never shied away from having an open and, I believe, a good relationship with Louis Farrakhan and so I would look forward to receiving that invitation and sitting down with him,” Omarosa said May 4. In the conversation, Omarosa shared her priority issues—education, economics, crime reduction and increased job opportunities—for the administration. But, she stressed, Black leaders must come to the table and dialogue with the president and advocate for what they want. Traditional civil rights leaders, she said, have been unwilling to sit-down and talk but offer criticism from afar. Outside of representatives of the Congressional Black Caucus, few Black leaders have called or requested a meeting with me or the president, said the Howard University graduate. It’s not a good strategy to be absent from the table for four years, she said.
“My history reflects that I have marched, walked, advocated and fought, even before I got into this office, for the rights of those who don’t have a voice and for those who can’t fight for themselves. I have a spiritual obligation to fight for those who Christ described as the least of these,” said the Trump White House representative, who is also an ordained minister.
As usual the Anti-Defamation League attacked and blasted the Trump aide for any words of respect or regard for the Minister.
“Yes, I am. I am so proud of that sister, Omarosa,” said Min. Farrakhan May 9 on the Cliff Kelley Show. “Well, if Ms. Omarosa is the door to Trump, well I kind of like that door. That’s a pretty door. That’s an intelligent door. That’s a spiritually rooted door. So whenever Mr. Trump is ready to hear what I have to say, he must know that when I speak I’m not just speaking for Louis Farrakhan and a few Negroes. You have to know who I represent. I represent God, Allah, who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi. And I represent his Messenger-Messiah, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I don’t need to say anymore. Just who I represent should let you know that you are going to have to hear from me sooner or later.”
“And if you notice the way I speak, I don’t speak like somebody that doesn’t have authority to say what I’m saying. You don’t need to send people to talk to Mr. Trump who don’t know what time it is. But if there should come a time that I would talk to the modern Pharaoh, I know exactly what to ask for and I’m not asking for Negro tidbits. I’m asking for what God wants: Land of our own and a good send off after we’ve given you 400 years of our sweat, blood and tears and received in return some of the worst treatment ever afforded to a human being,” said Min. Farrakhan.
Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam may have done more for the 9/11 truth movement than any other person. His recent symposium on the events of Sept. 11 drew more than 4,000 attendees, quite a feat considering that the most popular 9/11 truth meetings typically only draw a few hundred people.
By Dr. Kevin Barrett
The best-known African-American of our time is undoubtedly Barack Obama. But the man who generates the most excitement, speaks the most truth as black people see it, and can get the most African-Americans to rally in Washington, D.C. is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam.
A mesmerizing public speaker, Farrakhan’s messages resonate through the black community and beyond. His organization, the Nation of Islam, is a major player on the American political scene.
So by choosing to go all out for 9/11 truth, the Nation of Islam has significantly increased the chances of a breakthrough that could help America stop its headlong plunge into war, tyranny, and economic and moral bankruptcy, and instead turn toward peace, prosperity, liberty, and sustainability.
On Feb. 18, the Nation of Islam put on what may be the biggest and most explosive event in the whole history of the 9/11 truth movement. “The War on Islam: 9/11 Revisited, Uncovered, and Exposed” brought more than 4,000 people to the Cobo Center in Detroit.
You can watch the video archived at https://www.noi.org/911revisited/
“The War on Islam” situated 9/11 in the history of false-flag operations, zoomed in on some of the slam-dunk proof that 9/11 was an inside job, and finally pointed the finger at the main suspects: neoconservative Zionists bent on dragging the U.S. into an endless war on Israel’s enemies.
Full disclosure: I opened the event with a brief overview of false flag operations. Richard Gage AIA followed with evidence that the Twin Towers and WTC-7 were brought down in controlled demolitions. Then Christopher Bollyn finished by addressing the crucial question of who did it, by asserting that agents and supporters of Israel were the key players.
But is 9/11 still relevant? The fact that this, the biggest and boldest 9/11 truth event ever, took place now, in 2017, more than a decade and a half after the September 2001 tragedy, suggests that the issue is not going away—and for very good reason. All of the worst aspects of our present reality are pure products of 9/11: endless debilitating wars in the Muslim world, pervasive NSA surveillance of our lives and communications, with raw NSA data sent to Israel, a hobbled economy sapped by military spending, rampant Islamophobia and xenophobia, and a public beaten down by fear into a state of hopelessness, ignorance, and apathy. None of these problems can even be meaningfully addressed, much less solved, until we as a nation finally face a full reckoning with the truth of 9/11.
Thanks to its clout in the black community, the Nation of Islam is in a position to pose a significant challenge to the 9/11 gatekeepers. Will they ignore Saturday’s event? Attack it? Smear it with their favorite thought-stopping ad hominem slurs, “anti-Semitic” and “conspiracy theorist”? None of these approaches will work on the black community, which is largely immune to such appeals due to its historically hard-earned skepticism.
And the rest of America is waking up—and catching on to the pervasive propaganda lies of the power elite. The mostly white Americans who elected Donald Trump no longer believe in official reality any more than black Americans do.
As the Detroit 9/11 event was kicking off, the media was tearing its collective hair out over Trump’s latest tweet: “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCnews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people.”
Trump’s ability to get elected despite—or perhaps because of—his hostile relationship with the media is another pure product of 9/11 and the cognitive dissonance it created. While only about one third of Americans openly declare their 9/11 skepticism in most polls, depending on the wording that figure can rise to as high as 84%. Clearly a large majority of Americans knows or senses, consciously or unconsciously, that there is something very wrong with the official narrative. No wonder Trump can get away with blasting the “fake news” media and even declare them the enemies of Americans.
But will Trump ever be able to follow in the footsteps of Farrakhan and tell the full truth about why the media is our enemy? Will he find the courage to explain that the media is completely controlled by corporate money in general and Zionist money in particular? Will he explain that Zionists, plutocrats, and corrupt members of our own military-industrial complex, with the full complicity of senior members of the Bush administration, staged 9/11 as a “new Pearl Harbor”?
Trump is too tight with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and too comfortable with plutocracy.
He won’t do it unless we force him to. So please help us apply the necessary pressure. Do what the Nation of Islam just did: Find a way to spread the truth in your community.
