By Fahim A. Knight-EL

There is an old African saying: “When they first came; they had the bible, we had the land. We now have the bible and they have our land”. The two terms religion and cult have created controversy throughout human history and philosophers have argued Theism, Deism, pantheism, monotheism, existentialism, etc., for a very long time and today there are new debates going on about the concept of Intelligent Design. Philosophy is defined as the “Theory or logical analysis of the principles underlying conduct, thought, knowledge, and the nature of the universe; a study of human morals, character and behavior”. This writer had a philosophy professor named Dr. Clack who taught philosophy at North Carolina Central University. Thus, in my junior year in college, I took a course under Dr. Clack titled the "philosophy of religion". This professor was a heavy thinker and with an extremely analytical mind.

The first day of class, he asked the question, did God create man or did man create God? Dr. Clack could not phantom some intangible and formless being or entity possessing more of a rational and logical explanation about human existence than the quantitative values associated with cause and effect. You are not taught to question religion, but only to follow the tenets and precepts espoused by the clergy and further conveyed in the various interpreted so-called holy books. (Reference: Joseph Campbell; “Myths to Live By”).

The class was taking totally out of their familiar theological and intellectual comfort zone of perhaps having for the first time, in their lives, to think for themselves, as opposed to having others to think for them, which they had become so accustom. Dr. Clack’s line of questions were an exercise in thinking more so than some atheistic attack on religion, at least after almost thirty-years later that came to be my conclusion of those deep philosophical discussions.

The majority of the students were Christians and this writer could tell by the expressions on many of their faces that they were baffled and at a lost for words. For someone to dare pose such an awkward and off limit question (at least from their neck of the woods) it was considered so-called taboo. It was equally amazing how this single question within a split second had visually turned their vulnerable belief system topsy-turvy and the only thing many of them had to rely on to answer this question was their holy book, the Bible, because they were taught early on that this book contained all the answers. (Reference: John G. Jackson; “Man, God, and Civilization”).

Thus, many of them started or made attempts to quote scripture as definitive response statements of truth and they started stating that the Bible was divinely inspired by God. This writer some time ago was given a book by a friend; it was written in 1928 by Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind titled, "Divine Wisdom" Thind writes from an Eastern base philosophy and he gives a dictum relative to good intentions and it sums up my views on religion.

Dr. Thind stated, "There is a story of a monkey who was tamed by his master and who was fanning the master while he slept. One day a fly seated himself on the nose of the master and, of course, he was disturbed in his slumber. The monkey was well-meaning and full of love. He said: 'I will kill that fly, because my master is feeling very much disturbed.' He took a big stick, aimed at the fly, and killed the master. Lots of people are sincere, all right, but they are fools. A man can be a sincere man and a fool man at the same time. As far as their sincerity is concerned, we can praise them; as far as the foolishness is concerned, we can only pity them." (Reference: Bhagat Singh Thind; "Divine Wisdom" pg. 9).

This writer does accept that there are good people that practice religion and no doubt, they have good intentions, but the above cited example, of the monkey and master led to the monkey having good intentions about killing the fly that was disturbing his master. His good intentions directed to him relieving the master of this pest by killing the pest, but he also killed his master in the name of good intentions.

Thus, as far as my fellow student’s lack of intellectual ability to defend and wrestle with a mindset like Dr. Clack they had relegated their arguments to mere emotionalism and became very defensive in posture. This only got them into further trouble with the philosophical minded Dr. Clack. He definitely did not buy into some religious history book that had some special sacred validity. The Bible, as well as all so-called holy books were perhaps viewed by Dr. Clack, no differently than he would view any other so-called secular history book written by men (in which history tells us they were not divinely inspired).

This writer knew that these above stated views according to Dr. Clack’s perspective had no moral entitlement or lofty divine privilege to reserve space in the minds of rational human beings and not go unchallenged and unquestioned. To him this was mere superstitious propaganda given credibility by earthly beings perhaps more for mischievous intent and purposes other than religious moral and ethical values.

Hilton Hotema in the “Genesis of Christianity” maintained that “the Priesthood frighten the people, and to keep the Priesthood in high places, and to drive the multitude into the church, for sake of profit and power.” Control benefits the status quo and those who possess the power, has always been at the center of religion and theologians have for the most part interpreted and waged war either covertly or overtly by reinforcing dogmas which benefited the symbols of power. (Reference: Hilton Hotema; “Genesis of Christianity”).

This writer believes that Dr. Clack was trying to lead us to a better understanding of the scientific method of reasoning according to the authors Otto T. Solbrig and Dorothy J. Solbrig in their book titled, "Introduction to Population Biology and Evolution" stated, "The scientific method is based on observations of nature, hypotheses formulated to explain those observations. and experimental testing of deductions from those hypotheses. New observations are constantly being compared with old observations and theories. Errors are detected and theories are modified as new information becomes available. Consequently the scientific view of the world is provisional and uncertain. This uncertainty does not deny scientific progress but, rather makes it mandatory, since misconceptions, which are inevitable, given the fallible nature of humans, are constantly being cleared up. Scientific precepts, like common sense, are opinions, but opinions based on observations rather than arbitrary dicta." (Reference: Otto T. Solbrig and Dorothy J. Solbrig; “Introduction to Population Biology and Evolution" pg. 25).

Yet, simultaneously religion had been leading the masses to negotiate their earthly existence by appealing to a heavenly requirement that is rooted in someone's interpretation of what is determined as good and evil. Religion does not free individuals it does just the opposite, it enslaves and compel human beings to conformity which is often steeped in religious anxiety teachings.

Wikipedia defines a Cult in this manner: this quote was taking from the work of Louis Jolyon West "A cult is a group or movement exhibiting a great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea or thing and employing unethically manipulative techniques of persuasion and control (e.g. isolation from former friends and family, debilitation, use of special methods to heighten suggestibility and subservience, powerful group pressures, information management, suspension of individuality or critical judgment, promotion of total dependency on the group and fear of [consequences of] leaving it, etc) designed to advance the goals of the group's leaders to the actual or possible detriment of members, their families, or the community". (Reference: Wikipedia on line research site-- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult).

Man originally established external belief systems because he was in search for answers to explain his existence and the universe; this mental exploration only left him with more questions. Thus, from this essential question arose perhaps a loosely religious structure and gave way to the inception of a culture of religion that would be based on a so-called divine hierarchy, headed by a Supreme Being with infinite wisdom and possessing extraordinary powers and abilities. This is probably more characteristic of Western religious culture.

This arcade social arrangement allowed man to satisfy his inquisitiveness and to establish a superficial affirmation institution which to answer the six basic questions of who, what, where, why, when and how. Sociologist would perhaps refer to this as Ecclesia; it "Is a religious organization that claims the membership of everyone in a society or even in several societies. A powerful, bureaucratized organization with a hierarchy of full-time officials, it gives complete support to the state authorities and expects the same from them in turn. People who are born into a society with such an "official" religion become members almost automatically." (Reference: Ian Robertson; "Sociology" pg. 416).

The professor continued to systematically deconstruct all of their religious arguments, as the students tried desperately to convince their constituents and the professor that the words written in the Bible were absolute. This writer in the deepest recess of his mind knew that Dr. Clack's over-all intellectual position held substantial credibility and was irrefutable within the realm of logic. This writer subconsciously at that moment had a mental paradigm shift and made a silent psychological commitment to never again allow untried and untested ideas to be imposed on me including my own faith tradition.

This class led me to become a Free Thinker, I did not say, I became an atheist or an agnostic, but I have no phobias or bias opinions of those who are—they have a right to intellectually weigh-in on the subject of God and religion and I am completely comfortable with their conclusions; even if those conclusions may differ from my religious worldview. This writer after coming in contact with Dr. Clack was willing to consider the possibilities and not negate trains of thought that might-be contradictory and opposed to tradition.

This was not just a creation versus evolution discussion, but perhaps for the first time it was getting people to think and at that point mentally I had broken with tradition and had come to the realization that religion was a straitjacket—with four defined walls and there were no allowable room for one to deviate and those questions that arose to challenge theological and/or religious inconclusiveness were systematically relegated to faith.

This furthered muddied the water for me, but I looked up the word Faith in the dictionary and it defined Faith as "belief in, devotion to, or trust in somebody or something, especially without logical proof." So accepting this definition of faith, religion can offer a religious culture base on a set of teachings, values, norms, mores,' folkways, etc., but a logical explanation isn't a necessary prerequisite to justifying an overall belief system, in fact Faith defies the question of logic. There are certain things giving in all religions that aren't up for discussion, it requires silent devotion and the search for answers (proof) isn't important within the religious scheme and often any contradiction deviating from the popular view will be viewed with suspicious and met with resistance.

Yet, you will often hear the word tolerance being tossed around and associated with the religious worldview, as though it has a ting of meaningful conviction and a level of truth intent. Religious tolerance is only an acceptable attitude agreed upon by the religious clergy to protect the central theme and there is no room for judgmental attitudes and broadmindedness; these attributes are unwelcome.

The more this writer gathers his thoughts and how we define Cults, it is evident that the two—meaning organized religion and Cults share some similarities in the overall concept of religiosity and both are more closely akin to the mandate of having to unconditionally adhere to a set of agreed values that are closely guarded, which certain aspects isn't up for discussion and/or negotiation. However, in Western culture, we are taught, assuming that if a group or organization is defined and characterized as a Cult—there is a negative stigma or connotation attached and we automatically compartmentalize this to be something that has deviated from mainstream thought and function within the realm of a subculture or counter-culture.

Wikipedia further define a Cult as, "A group's cult status begins as rumors spread of its novel belief system, its great devotions, its idiosyncratic practices, its perceived harmful or beneficial effects on members or its perceived opposition to the interests of mainstream cultures and governments. Persistent rumors may follow relatively small and recently founded religious or non-religious groups when they are perceived to engage in excessive member control or exploitation” Logic is defined as a”sensible rational thought and argument rather than ideas that are influenced by emotion or whim." (Reference: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult ).

Logic viewed as a philosophy is defined as the “branch of philosophy that deals with the theory of deductive and inductive arguments and aims to distinguish good from bad reasoning." Cult if we can define it by Western definition perhaps would encompassed ancient civilizations such as Egypt (Kemet), China, India, Persia, etc., in which the majority of our present day religions, cultures, and sacrament rites proceeded, developed and evolved as we know it in the West from these various ancient societies. (Reference: Kersey Graves; “The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors).

But it is very interesting how the West became the greatest influence in which thought and institutions were corralled and took on new meanings reflecting the dominant society and culture interest. And from this a body of religious ideas left its maternal origin of Cult societies and transitioned into being so-called legitimate organized religion, accepted as mainstream expressions of faith tradition. However, the Cults from which they sprung immediately became demoted as illegitimate and pagan and more so than that, become demonized and classified as being anti-establishment. (Reference: Gerald Massey; “Ancient Egypt the Light of the World”).
Perhaps these ancient civilizations did not necessarily need some single Supernatural Being, but understood best and accepted the delicate relationship balance—between nature, the universe and himself. They were able to explain and articulate their existence by viewing their lives, not as some detached entity who were in an antagonistic and entrapped evolutionary predicament, but instead, often embraced the reality that there lives were inclusive of the natural order of things—reflecting a microcosm of the macrocosm universe, which ultimately was an extension of the cycle of life.

It was what the Western world perceives as Cults that gave life to religion, a lot of religious folklore and mythology teachings are steeped in the tradition and histories of Cults. There is little doubt in this writer's mind that the majority of our religions, if closely examined parallel more ancient civilizations. Cults have subtly bought into the language of definition as assigned by the status quo and as religion continues to gain societal momentum; the so-called Cults have not reminded the religious zealots that they owe them a debt of gratitude.

Our media perception of Cults are unfair, bias and possess negative implications, but religion is more or just as guilty of creating fanaticism, human division, war, extremism, intolerance, human suffering and doing it all in the name of God. There is one name for it, religious totalitarianism. Yes, Cults have inflicted similar acts of man’s inhumanity to man; but even in these instances religion is not permanently subjugated and dismissed as being inheritably evil and unredeemable. However, Cults that violates the so-called societal norms based on the political, economic and social rules that create similar infractions are doomed to a lifetime of ridicule and unacceptability.

Dr. Clack’s teachings and words loom’s even higher to me in 2008 as it relates to the concepts of religion and God. This article was partially motivated by the overt hypocrisy that this writer sees in religion and of course reflecting back on the visionary professor Dr. Clack. He might-be quite happy, if he ran across this article written by one of his former students who made the transition to becoming a Free Thinker.

Karl R. Popper in his article titled, “Is There An Ultimate Source of Knowledge?” Stated, “I believe that it would be worth trying to learn something about the world even if we merely learnt that we do not know much. This state of learned ignorance might be a help in many of our troubles. It might be well to remember that, while differing widely in the various little bits we know, in our infinite ignorance we are equal. If only we look for it we can often find a true idea, worthy of being preserved, in a philosophical theory which we must reject as false. Can we find an idea like this in one of the theories of the ultimate sources of our knowledge. I believe we can; and I suggest that it is one of the two main ideas which underlie the doctrine that the source of all knowledge is super-natural. The first of these ideas is false, I believe, while the second is true”.

Popper continues: “The first, the false idea, is that we must justify our knowledge, or our theories, by positive reasons, that is, by reasons capable of establishing them, or at least of making them highly probably; at any rate, by better reasons than that they have withstood criticism. This idea implies, as I suggested, that we must appeal to some ultimate or authoritative source of true knowledge; which still leaves open the character of that authority—whether it is human, like observation or reason, or super-human (and therefore super-natural). The second idea—whose vital importance has been stressed by Russell—is that no man’s authority can establish truth by decree; that we should submit to truth; that truth is above human authority. Taken these two ideas almost immediately yield the conclusion that the sources from which our knowledge derives must be super-human; a conclusion which tends to encourage self righteousness and the use of force against those who refuse to see the divine truth.” (Reference: Tim C. Leedom; “The Book Your Church Doesn’t Want You To Read” pg. vii).

The author Walter Williams in his controversial book titled, "The Historical Origin of Christianity" stated, "Whether you set these religious in a present or historical settings, where their true attributes can be extracted and displayed, you will find these attributes to be cold, calculated, deceptive and devious lies. Western religion is the ultimate deceptive psychological ploy, primarily because religion professes to encompass the word GOD. Therefore, to accept another religion over Western religion is to be ridiculed and reduced to an uncivilized savage. To deny these Western religions altogether is to damn your soul to eternal suffering. Cosmetically, these religions are embodied with high principles and valued ideas, but underlying this surface is the most devastating psychological ploy imaginable. Unsuspectingly, believers offer little resistance to their acceptance of these religions because, typically, religion is introduced to them by their parents. The orchestration and embellishment of these religions are a primary function of the mass news media to visually bring myths and lies to life, to lend validation to them and make them believable in the eyes of the masses." (Reference: Walter Williams;” The Historical Origin of Christianity" pg x & xi).

Dr. Clack stated he had more empirical proof that cause and effect gave more definitive answers to explaining our human existence and our relationship to other creatures, as well as to the universe than the God and religious theories. He definitely viewed the science and the universal laws of possessing more definitive credence than unproven faith that was rooted in myths, fairy tales, magic, tradition etc., unscientific "beliefs" that are substantiated by "faith" which often defies logic and reason would not be acceptable in his world.

In the book authored by T. Williams, Richard B. Pilgrim and Ronald R. Cavanaugh titled, "Religion: An Introduction" stated, "Religion as a specific system of belief in God, including a group doctrine concerning Him, and His relations to man and the Universe". Clack through philosophical deductive reason drew the conclusion that man needed to explain his own existence and therefore invented religion and the concept of a Supreme Being with omnipotent ability and pointed to him to explain what he perceived as the unexplainable—this not only included his origin but how do you explain our five (5) billion year old planet in all its magnificence? It became easy to say God was responsible and this answer has quasi satisfied a large portion of humanity’s inquiry to know. (Reference: T. Williams, Richard B. Pilgrim and Ronald R. Cavanaugh; "Religion: An Introduction” pg. 6).

The United States economy in the last twelve (12) months has had more economic challenges perhaps not seen since the Great Depression of 1929, in which the United States economy collapsed sending political, economic and social shock waves throughout America and around the world. Dr. Malachi Z. York in his book titled, "Leviathan: 666" stated, "The Depression of 1929-1937 A.D. was caused by too many goods chasing too little currency. Instead of making more currency available, the Federal Reserve deliberately took currency and credit out of circulation to cause the Depression. The bankers took over the defaulted properties. The New Deal was instituted whereby the Federal Reserve expanded the credit currency and national debt." (Reference: Malachi Z. York;” Leviathan: 666" pg. 323).

This is almost like deja Vu because the exact thing is taking place in 2008 that took place almost 80 years ago—blame the money changers, on these present day economic events because they are inventive and cyclical. Who are the Elitist men that preside over humanity? David Rockefeller, Harry Oppenheimer, Baron Eric de Rothschild, Karl von Habsburg, Juan Carlos, Edgar M. Bronfman, Sr., Lord Peter Carrington, etc.

The devaluation of the United States dollar, the Subprime fiasco, the escalating Oil pricing and perhaps the first time in the history of the United States, the Federal Reserve financially rescued, a private investment firm—Bear Sterns. This unilateral decision was made by the Federal Reserve to rescue Bear Sterns and engineered JP Morgan's purchase of Bear Stearns with a $29 billion guarantee was unprecedented. But this writer believes it was well calculated and appeared to be on the surface diametrically opposed to how we were taught business principles 101 in America. The system of Capitalism, in particular private enterprise foster risk versus projective profit incentives—the free market arena is for players (the taxpayers did not share in the astronomical profit margins these financial vipers reaped over their many years in business) and the taxpayers should not be burden with external debt incurred by private Fortune 500 companies for what appears to be poor business decisions that has adversely affected their bottom line figures. Moreover, greed was a factor in their so-called failing.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, two of the largest home mortgage lenders in the United States in which the Federal Reserve pledged to backstop Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac up to $200 billion dollars as a bailout move and also, American International Group (AIG) was bailout by the Federal Reserve—they readily passed the debt on to American taxpayers as though they are in a position to absorb these private business financial crisis—who already has a tight economic noose around their necks. These staunch capitalist are blaming the "have nots" for their so-called profit losses and accusing the public of manipulating the system of credit, but are taking no responsibility for poor due diligence because there is no honor amongst thieves.

The international bankers are putting the squeeze on the American people, in particular and the global economy in general, they have acquired the majority of the world's gold and has built the world economy on a worthless piece of paper (Federal Reserve note) and of course, they are behind orchestrating Wall Street and the world market collapse.

Ahmad Thompson in his article titled, "The King Who Has No Clothes (the DAJJAL)" stated, "The money used to be made principally of Gold or Silver. Since it was made from these precious metals it had inherent value. The first banks were formed to look after other people's money by keeping it in a safe place, although of course even at this stage money still had a palpable and valuable form. The practice arose whereby when someone deposited Gold or Silver in the bank, the banker would give the depositor a written receipt, whereby he promised to repay the Gold or Silver when that receipt was presented to him. The practice then arose that these receipts became transferable. Thus the depositors of the Gold was able to buy goods to the value of the Gold in the bank, by giving his receipt to the seller of the goods. The seller of the goods could then take that receipt to the bank, and collect the Gold, even though it was not he who had originally deposited the Gold there. Since Gold and Silver are relatively heavy, and since paper is relatively light, the bankers then hit upon the idea of printing paper money. Any one who deposited Gold and Silver with them was given this paper money. That paper money could then be used in any number of consecutive transactions, the understanding being that anyone at any time who had these notes come into his or her possession could, if he or she wanted, take them to the bank and exchange them for the Gold or Silver which they represented. At this simple stage every paper note was backed by its equivalent amount of Gold or Silver. You could exchange one for the other at any time." (Reference: Ahmad Thompson; "The King Who Has No Clothes).

Thus, these gangster have no shame in their game, they are continuingly making zillions of dollars off the misery of humanity on the backend and then hold the ignorant masses on the front-end liable for the recent financial woes, which they themselves created—they are bent on getting all the money from their modern day slaves (yes debt is a form of slavery). Texe Marrs in his book titled, "Circle of Intrigued: The Hidden Inner Circle of the Global Illuminati Conspiracy stated, "Cloaked in mystery and shrouded in secrecy, the Inner Circle is comprised of ten powerful men. These men meet regularly--at least twice per year--secluded location. Their proceedings take place in a locked and sealed suite at a swank and exclusive resort hotel, or at a private estate owned by one their minions. Their decisions and agenda, kept top secret, result in the most dire and grievous consequences for ordinary citizens. Wars, revolutions, scientific discoveries, diseases, financial booms--and crashes!--these are some of the life-giving-destroying decisions made at their confidential sessions. The future of Planet Earth and almost six billion inhabitants is plotted out in the dark recesses of the mind and hearts of these ten cruel men. Most American know little or nothing of the existence of the Inner Circle and are totally oblivious to its grand design." (Reference: Texe Marrs; "Circle of Intrigued: The Hidden Inner Circle of the Global Illuminati Conspiracy" pg. 15 &16).

US Government in 1913 turned over our monetary system to a bunch of private bankers that operates behind the Federal Reserve System and gave these twelve Central Banks ruler-ship over our monetary system. This is a list of Banking Institutions (Central Banks) that rules the entire planet: 1. Rothschild Bank of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, 2. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York (Rockefeller) Chase National bank of New York (Rockefeller). 3. First National Bank of New York. 5. Hanover National Bank of New York. 6. Goldman Sachs of New York. 7. Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York. 8. Lehman Brothers of New York. 9. Warburg Bank of Hamburg Warburg Bank of Amsterdam. 10. Lazard Brothers of Paris. 11. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy. 12. JP Morgan. The Thirteenth Tribe is the Mother of all banks—The Bank for International Settlements based in Basel, Switzerland. (Reference: Ashahed M. Muhammad; “The Synagogue of Satan”)

These so-called failing financial institutions are only subsidiaries of the Central Banks, the Central Banks use them to deal with us peasants and act as sophisticated collection agencies that enforces the interest rates and is on the frontline of the buying and selling of currency pursuant to the ground rules laid out by the Central Banks (for laymans, when you negotiate an interest rate on a loan, you have purchased a credit base dollar and has agreed to repay it at a higher interest percentage rate than the actual amount you borrowed—this is buying and selling money, but this writer is from the streets and where I am from we call it "loan sharking").

In all actuality, the world's currency for the most part has no value—paper which has become the medium of exchange and was created out of thin air. Pat Robertson in his book title, "The New World Order" stated, "The companion secret to wealth building is compound interest, called by Baron Rothschild 'the eight wonder of the world.' If it is possible to create money out of nothing, then loan it at interest. Think how more wealth can be created if the money is not repaid but allowed to compound year after year." (Reference: Pat Robertson; "The New World Order" pg. 121 & 122).

The Federal Reserve is the go between the people, banks and the Central Banks. Eustace Mullins in the "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" further stated, "Federal Reserve notes are actually promissory notes, promise to pay, rather than what we traditionally consider money. They are interest bearing notes issued against interest bearing government bonds, paper issued with nothing but paper backing, which is known as fiat money, because it has only the fiat of the issuer to guarantee these notes. The Federal Reserve Act authorizes the issuance of these notes 'for the purpose of making advances to Federal Reserve banks . . . The said notes shall be obligations of the United States. They shall be redeemed in gold on demand at the Treasury Department of the United States in the District of Columbia.' Tourists visiting the Bureau of Printing and Engraving on the Mall in Washington D.C. view the printing of Federal Reserve notes at this government agency on contract from the Federal Reserve System for the nominal sum of .00260 each in units of 1,000, at the same price regardless of the denomination. These notes, printed for a private bank, then become liabilities and obligations of the United States government and are added to our present $4 trillion debt. The government had no debt when the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913." (Reference: Eustace Mullins; "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" pg. 203).

This writer learned by casually studying finance and business; in particular, the capitalist economic system and learned that the major means of production and distribution was a matter of private enterprises, comprised of corporate ownership being in the hands of individuals and private corporations. Eustace Mullins in his monumental work titled, "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve stated, "The International consortium of financiers known as the Bilderbergers, who meet annually in profound secrecy to determine the destiny of the western world, is a creature of the Rockefeller-Rothschild alliance, and that it held its third meeting on St. Simons Island, only a short distance from Jekyll Island. Larson also states that 'The Rockefeller interests work in close alliance with the Rothschilds and other central banks." (Reference: Eustace Mullins; "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve” pg.173).

The bailout of Bear-Sterns was not a decision put forth by referendum where it was brought before the citizens of the United States for vote nor did the United States Congress or not even President Bush because the Federal Reserve does not act under the United States Constitution or our jurisprudence system; it functions with sovereign immunity. This writer has watched Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Shalom Bernanke testify and give reports—generic explanations for the rise and/or decline of interest rates before the United States Congress as though he is being held accountable to the American people. The concept of fiscal responsibility does not apply to the Federal Reserve.

Thus, in this writer's last article titled, "None Dare Call It Conspiracy: There is no Other Name to Call it by" there were some critics from various websites where the article was posted who could not phantom nor accept or were unwilling to explore the possibilities that their existed a small Cartel who literally rule the world and pull the purse strings on the political, economic and social events that affects all humanity.

The evidence of this is becoming clear at each passing day. The entire financial crisis that the Unites States is experiencing, is being orchestrated behind the curtain. One responder tried to deduce the above article to anti-Semitism and even declared me as an anti-Semite because some of the evidence pointed to a small sector of a powerful Jewish Cabal that were involved in high finance and banking. This writer abhors any form of racism and bigotry and has fought against these type injustices all my adult life. This writer has no power to disrupt, alter or impede Jewish people's progress which rendered his criticism of me and my writings even more senseless. However, there is a Zionist influence that is undeniable and some time it becomes quite difficult to ascertain the truth because of the layers upon layers of intentional deception.

Some damn body has a stranglehold over humanity and it appears to be the same names and faces that have been recurring in American history since the inception of our Republic and throughout the world; a bloodline of powerful invisible rulers of Dynastic families that have been inspired by greed and the accumulation of wealth by any means necessary seems to always be front and center in this debate.

David Icke in his book titled, "The Biggest Secret" describes it this way: "The control of money and banking via the Rothschilds and others are crucial to this. One of the brotherhood's most important coups was the creation in the 1913 of the Federal Reserve, the so-called 'central bank' of the United States. It is neither federal nor has any reserve. It is a cartel of private banks owned by the 20 founding families, mostly Europeans, which today decides the interest rates for the United States and lends non-existent money (figures on a screen) to the US Government on which the taxpayers have to pay interest. This is what we call the 'American Deficit'--it is fresh air. The Federal Government of the United States does not own a single share in the Federal Reserve and American citizens can not purchase them. Profits exceed $150 billion a year and the Federal Reserve has not once in all its history published audited accounts." (Reference: David Icke; "The Biggest Secret" pg 219).

They completed there financial enslavement of humanity in 1913 (the establishment of the Federal Reserve Act and system) at that secret meeting at Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia where the International Bankers and a bunch rogue politicians met with criminal intent (a Conspiracy was hatched to rob the world monetary system) performed and enacted one of the greatest bloodless revolutions in the history of mankind. It put Mao Se Tung, Ho chi Ming and, the French Revolution, and the Bolsheviks Revolution to shame and other great revolution to shame. There was not one bullet fired, but the invisible casualties would be made visible immediately and over time by this master too slave relationship that would bind and chain humanity forever to DEBT and psychologically convincing them that this was the greatest economic system in human history, as defined by Adam Smith in his treatise "The Wealth of Nations" and they have controlled the people's will to resist.

This is how it played out, William Guy Carr in his book titled, "Pawns In The Game" stated, “Mr. Paul Warburg's creation of 1913 had been steadily attempting to set up a 'Central Banking Organization which would acknowledge NO AUTHORITY ON THIS PLANET AS ABOVE IT (emphasis mine). Hitler knew that if Warburg and associates had their way, the Bank of International Settlements would become as autocratic in regard to international affairs, as the bank of England is in regard to British National Affairs and Foreign Policy. Politicians and statesmen were being asked to believe this banker's dream would stabilize the banking system of the world. In this contention they were absolutely correct. The nigger-in-gold-pile is the fact, that with the realization of this dream, all hope of freedom and plenty for the individual and private industry would automatically disappear. The citizens of the world have the same financial security as the criminals who enjoys social security behind bars. Against this process of reducing the people of the world to financial slavery Hitler decided to take a definite stand, and refused to allow Germany to be merged into the league of Monopolist States, secretly controlled by agents of the Illuminati”. (Reference: William Guy Carr; "Pawns In The Game" pg. 154-155).

William Guy continues: “After Paul Warburg's Federal Reserve System had been in operation three years i.e.1913 to 1916, President Woodrow Wilson summed up the economic situation in the United States of America as follows:” A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credits. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. . .We have come to be one of the worst ruled; one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments, in the civilized world. . .no longer a government by conviction and the free vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.' That is actually what modern so-called democracy really means." (Reference: William Guy Carr; "Pawns In The Game" pg. 154-155).

Yet, it was a coup d’état with unimaginable ramifications and consequences that would impact the political, economic and social lives of many generations to come. The financial trouble on Wall Street is being induced by the twelve Central Banks and the Federal Reserve System is its front—disguising itself as a governmental entity, but is privately owned by the same twelve Central Banks that determines nations currency value, interest rates and daily strength and weakness of the global financial markets. (Reference: William Greider; “Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country”).

Eustace Mullins in "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" further stated: "Even the present Chairman of the House Banking Committee claims that the Federal Reserve is government agency, and that it is not privately own. The fact is that the government has never owned a single share of the Federal Reserve Bank Stock. This charade stems from the fact that the President of the United States appoints the governors of the Federal Reserve Board, who are then confirmed by the Senate. The secret author of the Act, banker Paul Warburg, a representative of the Rothschild bank, coined the name 'Federal' from thin air for the Act, which he wrote to achieve two of his pet aspirations, an 'elastic currency,' read (rubber check), and to facilitate trading in acceptance, international trade credits. Warburg was founder and president of the International Acceptance Corporation, and made billions in profits by trading in this commercial paper. Sec. 7 of the Federal Reserve Act provides 'Federal reserve banks, including the capital and surplus therein, and income derived there from, shall be exempt from Federal, state and local taxation, except taxes on real estate.' Government buildings do not pay real estate tax.” (Reference: Eustace Mullins; "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" pg. 202 & 203).

There are many who refuse or unwilling to explore the possibility that there are invisible powers and entities that are manipulating our very existence. This writer deliberately did not venture in the connection between the various ORDERS (Club of Rome, House of Rothschild, Skull and Bones, Order of Illuminati, Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission, etc. This writer has written extensively in the past, on the Order connection to High Finance in which these powerful men are ranking members in these various front Orders and communicate in a language of symbolism that is indiscernible to the masses of the people. (Reference: Dr. John Coleman: “Conspirators Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of the 300”).

Many of them are high degree Freemasons, but even these powerful and influential Orders—there is a Circle, within a Circle, within a Circle. These layers of deception allows these Dynastic Families and Elitist to shield their inner workings and identities from the naked eye. There loyalty is power and greed. The recent United States financial Crisis is not incidental or coincidental, but these Invisible Power Brokers have the ability to call the debt in and it is being orchestrated by Federal Reserve and the Central Banks—they never lose money, they create misery in order to make more money. (Reference: Gary Allen and Larry Abraham: “None Dare Call it Conspiracy”)

This writer have been watching US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson encourage Americans to continue to have faith and hope in the United States economy. These bailouts are estimated to eventually cost the American taxpayers one (1) trillion dollars. Secretary Paulson is a low level front man that takes his orders from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Shalom Bernanke and no one can stop the bleeding, but the invisible men who are behind the Central Banks and right now the bleeding is profitable.

Many like me, have produced documented evidence and has done empirical research to substantiate our findings, which points to the fact, that clandestine forces do exist and they secretly rule over humanity. These present crisis are explainable and some economist or academician are paid to give us abstract and generic answers, but in most instances, even these Talking Heads have little to no knowledge that someone is pulling the purse strings. Our critics have bought into the popular view of the powerful propaganda machines which is the most influential and powerful arm of the Invisible Power Brokers.
Our monetary system is a hoax and it was inevitable that money that is created in thin air was a slick magician trick and at some point it would come tumbling down.

Pat Robertson in his book, “The New World Order” stated, “American money is also made up of ‘notes’ of the Central bank. Take a dollar bill out of your wallet and read what it says. It is not silver or a gold certificate. It is a ‘note’ issued by America’s Central Bank. If you do for any reason don’t like it, all you will get in exchange is another Federal Reserve note. It is money created out of nothing, printed paper backed only by a private Central Bank. Yet it says, contrary to the Constitution, it is ‘legal tender for all debts, public and private.’ ” (Reference: Pat Robertson; “The New World Order” pg. 120).

These same Invisible Power Brokers, the Central Banks and their Dynastic families are behind the war in Iraq; moreover, stealing oil and hiding their dirty hands behind their low-level operative President George W. Bush and United States Foreign Policy. They are not fully telling the American people that the United States economy is in a recession, but this sounds like a contradiction when the United States taxpayers are spending billions of dollars in a war that America can not win. Why do not the United States just end this unjust war and use some of that money air marked for Iraq to aid the suffering and slumping United States economy? United States Foreign policy is being driven not by Congress or the President, but by a secret Cabal of powerful men. Lastly, Oil theft means more to them then us useless eaters. (Reference: William Cooper: “Behold A Pale Horse.”)

America on September 8, 2008 this past week perhaps lost one of its most moderate and tolerant, as well prominent Islamic voices and personalities in America; in the untimely death of Imam Wallace D. Muhammad (aka Imam Warith Mohammed) , who was the next to the youngest son of the late Honorable Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975). Imam Mohammed made his transition at the age of 74 of heart disease and complications of diabetes at his Chicago home. Muhammad (Imam Warith Mohammed) was born on October 30, 1933 in Hamtramck, Michigan to Elijah and Clara Muhammad. W.D. Muhammad rejected the religious nationalism and the emphasis his Father, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad placed on Islamic Black Nationalism; referring to his father’s teaching as being un-Islamic. Some Nation of Islam historians maintain that the Nation of Islam's founder and Savior Master Wali Fard Muhammad (1877-?) instructed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to name this son, Wallace D. Muhammad after himself. It was taught early on that Wallace D. Muhammad was prepared from birth in a somewhat special and mystical way—in which certain esoteric and Gnostic teachings and knowledge was bestowed to this so-called chosen son. He was raised in the Nation of Islam and early on began to question his father, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's theology. The younger Muhammad was expelled and excommunicated numerous times for theological insubordination. (Reference: Wallace Deen Muhammad; “As the Light Shineth From the East”). Also, more information on the Nation of Islam refer to Fahim A. Knight-EL at http://fahimknightsworld.blogspot.com/2008/06/nation-of-islam-concise-history-true.html

Clifton E. Marsh in his book titled, "From Black Muslims to Muslims: Transition From Separatism to Islam, 1930-1980" stated, "Wallace D. Muhammad, who was accepted back into the organization during Savior's Day Convention of 1965. Wallace returned to his father and asked for forgiveness. The reinstatement didn't last very long. Wallace said, 'I was right back out. I was excommunicated three or four times and always for the same charge. I was not accepting the god image given to Fard Muhammad. After Wallace was suspended again in 1965, he remained inactive until he was readmitted in 1969. While he was suspended, the right to interact and communicate with members of his family was denied. During his suspension, he owned a book store and formed a study group called the Upliftment Society. Wallace also a welder and operated a carpet and furniture cleaning business. He was accepted back into the organization in 1969 but did not regain his Minister's status until 1974." (Reference: Clifton E. Marsh; "From Black Muslims to Muslims: Transition From Separatism to Islam, 1930-1980" pg. 113).

This writer first met Imam Mohammed (Imam Warith Mohammed) in 1975, he had just been elected by the Muhammad Royal Family and by the high Islamic officials in the Nation of Islam to succeed his father Elijah Muhammad as the new leader of Nation of Islam on February 26, 1975. C. Eric Lincoln who authored book titled, "Race, Religion and the Continuing American Dilemma" Stated, "The transition of power was neither complete nor fully successful, and while the movement did not shatter upon his (W.D. Muhammad) succession , as it was widely predicted, there was dissatisfaction, disillusion-ment, and also inevitable erosion of membership. An underdetermined segment of the Nation of Islam either drifted free from involvement or elected to follow the independent movement of Minister Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan, who succeeded Malcolm X as Elijah's chief spokesmen, become the most prominent exponent of the original teachings of Elijah Muhammad. Whatever the fortunes of Islamic Orthodoxy, Farrakhan's movement (which retained the name of the Nation of Islam) will be scarcely be affected, because for the millions of Blacks whose lot has not been measurably improved by the cosmetics of racial change. The vision of Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam still represents a self determined identity and tangible effort at reversal." (Reference: C. Eric Lincoln; "Race, Religion and the Continuing American Dilemma" pg. 164).

He was eventually bestowed with the title Supreme Minister and the entire Nation of Islam's hierarchy pledged their support to Wallace D. Muhammad (Imam Warith Mohammed) on that day. Reflecting back to 1975, the first time I went to hear the younger Muhammad deliver a public address (Imam Warith Mohammed) but I can not recall whether or not it was at Masjid Malcolm Shabazz in Harlem, New York or at some venue in New Jersey. This writer prior to hearing Muhammad (Imam Warith Mohammed) had heard a few Nation of Islam speakers in the past such as Minister Louis Farrakhan (minister of Temple Number 7—New York), Minister James Shabazz (minister of Temple Number 25—Newark), Minister Isaiah Kareem (minister of Temple Number 6—Baltimore), Minister Lonnie Shabazz (minister of Temple Number 4--Washington, D.C), etc., and all of them were fiery and electrifying orators possessing huge amounts of stage presence.

But when this writer heard Minister Wallace D. Muhammad, (Imam Warith Mohammed) he was sort of soft spoken and a lot less charismatic than some of the other speakers and ministers in the Nation of Islam that I was privileged to hear. This writer was accustom to seeing the Nation of Islam leaders flamboyant style and flanked by their body guards called the Fruit of Islam (FOI), but Minister Wallace D. Muhammad (Imam Warith Mohammed) did not have the flair and pomp of other high ranking profile Nation of Islam officials. He appeared to be a deeply spiritual man who was grounded in the the Holy Qur'an and the Sunna (the way of Prophet Muhammad). Muhammad's (Imam Warith Mohammed) presentation on that day could have been equated to a highly intellectual university level professor, but the monotone talk he delivered wasn't necessarily captivating, it lacked luster and delivery; however, it did appeal more to your rational and analytical faculties, as opposed to your emotional—lower self. This remained his preaching and/or teaching style his entire tenure as a Muslim leader in America. But Muhammad (Imam Warith Mohammed) also had a knack for uncovering word origins, and getting to the root of a word or concept and was a serious student of etymology. He didn't mind referring to a dictionary in order to ascertain a definition, as well as break down a word. In addition, he loved the science of epistemology. He definitely was a highly intelligent man. This writer in that area had learned a lot from Wallace D. Muhammad (Imam Warith Mohammed). (Reference: Wallace Deen Muhammad; “As the Light Shineth From the East”).

Let me inject, I did not necessarily agree with Muhammad's (Imam Warith Mohammed) social and political positions—he was for the most part apolitical and during the 1980s he openly supported the Republicans Reagan/Bush ticket and many non-Muslim African Americans viewed him as contradiction. He never seemed willing or able to attract a non-Muslim following base or sympathizers in the black community at-large beyond those who had converted to Islam and became loyal followers. Yet, he led perhaps one of the largest Ummah (Muslim Community) of non-immigrant Muslims in America of anywhere from five hundred thousand to one million Muslims, but most Americans—black and white know very little about the man and his mission.

This writer had always felt that W.D. Muhammad was entrapped in what the Dr. W.E.B Dubois referred to as "twosome"; Dr. W.E.B Dubois who authored the book "The Souls of Black Folk" describes our American predicament in a most eloquent and definitive way, he stated, "After the Egyptian and Indian, the Greek and Roman, the Teuton and Mongolian, the Negro is a sort of seventh son, born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world,--a world which yields him no true self-consciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his twoness,--an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two un-reconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder." (Reference: W.E.B Dubois; "The Souls of Black Folk").

It was this stigma that haunted Muhammad and it was a direct result of the teachings and philosophy given by his father Elijah Muhammad that he tried so desperately to escape and wanted to create an ideological, philosophical and programmatic distinction between his worldview and his father's worldview and nation of his birth. Muhammad in late 1975 began to make organizational changes in the Nation of Islam, an organization that had wore the distinction for over forty-four years as being an "unorthodox" Islamic movement in America and taught separation as one of its most essential religious planks. The young Muhammad renamed the Nation of Islam that he inherited to the World Community of Al-Islam in the West and renamed and ethnically reclassified his black followers racial and nationality identity to Bilalians, which was derived from the history of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and more specifically from the Ethiopian slave Bilal Ibn Rabah who had risen to become the first Muezzin (caller to prayer) in Islam during Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) time. (Reference: C. Eric Lincoln: “The Black Muslims in America” pg. 265).

Muhammad decentralized the organization giving each Mosque complete sovereignty to function independent of his Chicago Headquarters and appointed a Council of Imams that served as the executive board of governors over the World Community of Al- Islam in the West (today known as American Society of Muslims). Imam Mohammed at the American Muslim Mission in 1985 Tenth Anniversary celebration stated: "If you'll follow my advice, you would put down term 'American Muslim Mission (today known as American Society of Muslims).' You would put it down and never pick up any term that lumps you all together in one community. You will be members of a Muslim community international. . .you will hold your Imam accountable. You will encourage your Imam to form good relations with other Imams, not just 'black ones, but 'white ones, red ones, all colors'. . When you meet together, you won't meet together under some corporate name, but you will meet together, each Imam on equal footing." (Reference: Mustafa El-Amin: "The Religion of Islam and the Nation of Islam: What is the Difference" pg. 63.)

He tried to redefine the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's role as a mere social reformer, as opposed to being the last Messenger of Allah and denigrated the Nation of Islam's founder Wali Fard Muhammad to a mystic or magician who was using reverse psychology in the name of Islam to convert superstitious believing Christians to this new religion called Islam in the early 1930s. He sold and mortgaged off a lot of the businesses enterprises and property that Elijah Muhammad had acquired to resolve and satisfy what he described as huge outstanding and insurmountable debt, which were incurred by poor business management under his father's administration. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad from this writer's vanish point had built an estimate seventy (70) million dollar business empire and was considered a savvy businessman. (Reference: Wallace Deen Muhammad; “As the Light Shineth From the East”).

W.D. Muhammad raised the United States flag in the Mosque and openly declared his loyalty to America something his father would have never done. Muhammad established good relations with Saudi Arabia and other Islamic nations and leaders. He advocated that his followers practice the Five Pillars of Islam, which included taking Shahada (confession of faith), Salat (prayer), Zakat (charity—almsgiving), Ramadan (fasting during the holy month) and Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) in order to synchronize his organization with mainstream Islam. (Reference: Warith Deen Mohammed; “Focus on Al-Islam).

If this writer could give a summarizing of what was Imam Mohammed's core teachings and belief this perhaps would represent a fair representation. Mohammed consistently advocated. "The fundamental principals of Al-Islam are the most important things in a Muslim's life. We are not look for ways to modify the principals of Al-Islam to justify unlawful and unnatural practices. We are alter our attitudes and practices to conform to Islamic principals. . .Faith in Allah means that we believe in him and trust Him over everything else. Belief in Allah's prophets means that we accept all of His Prophets, as well as the fact that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) , the most noble and honorable of all creatures, is Allah's Last Prophet, and our leader and example, who we obey and follow. Belief in the Books that the Prophets means that we are question all books under the light of what is revealed in the Holy Qur'an. Belief in Allah's Angels means that we must seek to understand the phenomena operating between our vision of reality and the truth that Allah has revealed. Belief in the Divine Ordinance means we believe that Allah has law operating throughout creation, and in every phase of our lives, to give us the benefits of our good deeds and the consequences of our bad ones. It means we believe that we can not escape the Justice of Allah. Belief in the Day of Resurrection (Judgment Day) means we believe that this scheme of creation is on time and for a purpose. It is a training ground, a testing place where we prove ourselves worthy of reaching a higher stage in the fulfillment of our aspirations. We believe that Allah will provide a new creation where we will have an opportunity to realize the fullness of our good aspirations. Because of this, we should always have hope and we should never despair." (Reference: Mustafa El-Amin; "Al-Islam, Christianity and Freemasonry' pg.35-36.)

But he was always viewed as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's son and many Orthodox Sunni Muslims were suspicious of his organization’s transformation and many quietly questioned his own conversion to mainstream Islam. This suspicion was part blame on his followers who accepted the man and his mission unconditionally and in some eyes, they honored him no different and/or similar to how the Muslims in the old Nation of Islam revered the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Many of his loyalist would vehemently disagree with this contention because they would like to believe that their community had evolved beyond the focus of a charismatic leadership head—to focusing only on Allah (God) and his Messenger Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (PBUH) of 1400 years ago. This writer believes this perception unjustly stigmatized Imam Mohammed and the Muslim American Movement (today known as American Society of Muslims). They were still viewed by some international Muslims and United States immigrant Muslims as the "Black Muslims" and this came about partially due to how Islam in America developed and evolved around black charismatic figureheads such as Noble Drew Ali, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, Clarence 13X, Khallid Abdul Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan, etc. (Reference: Adib Rashad; “Elijah Muhammad and the Ideological foundation of the Nation of Islam).

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1959 made Hajj—pilgrimage to the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia (he was received as a Muslim) and he also took two of his sons, Herbert Muhammad (Jabir Muhammad) and Wallace D. Muhammad along with him to the Holy City. So, the younger Muhammad was exposed to Orthodox Sunni Islam at a very young age. Also, his youngest brother Dr. Akbar Muhammad was sent to study Islam abroad at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt and is presently a professor of Islamic studies in the Boston area. Imam Mohammed desired to bring the Nation of Islam's theology in-line with mainstream Islam, as it's taught in the East. Thus, unlike his father, he openly embraced his "Americanism" and held the United States in high regards and encouraged his followers to be part of his perceived enculturation and integrate in the whole of American life because essentially they were American Muslims not Black Muslims. This was part of his efforts to deconstruct the Nation of Islam's teachings of race and more so than that, he was subtlety conforming to mainstream Islam teachings of universalism and inclusiveness of all humanity in which the teachings of nationalism was not inline with the Holy Qur'an and teachings of Prophet Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him). (Reference: Nasir Makr Hakim; editor; “The True History of Elijah Muhammad).

Dr. C. Eric Lincoln in his book titled, “The Black Muslims in America” Third Edition; Stated, “By 1985 the transition from a cosmocentric, race-based community of believers in search of Armageddon to the anonymity of unchallenged inclusion in one of the world’s great spiritual communions had be substantially completed. The tracks had been laid , the signals had been identified, the test runs had been made. Only time and experience could do more. Having set the parameters and served as exemplar for the spiritual metamorphosis of his once Lost-Found Nation, Warith Deen Muhammad was ready for recognition and reassignment. He got both, but the vote was not unanimous. International Islam rewarded him with significant responsibility for the oversight and direction of Muslim interests in the United States. Heads of state throughout the Muslim world knew of him and welcomed his presences.” (Reference: C. Eric Lincoln: “The Black Muslims in America” pg. 265).

Lincoln continues “he became a popular lecturer at schools and colleges, churches and synagogues, and before a variety organizations committed to addressing the terrors of the human predicament through interracial, interfaith, and international dialogue. In the old Nation of Islam, both Wallace and his father went to prison for refusal of military service, but on February 5, 1992, Imam Warith Deen Muhammad was invited to the Pentagon to address the elite of the American military. The very next day on the floor of the United States Senate, Imam Muhammad invoked Allah, ‘the merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer’ on behalf of ‘the President of the United States. . .every member of the Senate. . .every member of the House of Representative,’ The wheel had turned. Nation of Islam had almost come full circle.” (Reference: C. Eric Lincoln: “The Black Muslims in America” pg. 265).”

Perhaps one of the greatest ideological contributions that Imam Mohammed made was that he worked tirelessly to create dialog with the religious inter-faith community, in particular after September 11, 2001, and dialogued with Jews and Christians of different races and ethnic group trying to bring better understanding between the various faith communities. He presented himself as a voice of reason and was deeply concern about humanity and the need for moral excellence. Imam Mohammed was a true ambassador for Islam and 9/11 he had an even bigger job of ridding the false image that Islam was a radical and terrorist inspired religion that was bent on destroying the West. He worked to promote better understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims. He led a movement in the late 1970s and early 1980s called Committee to Remove All Images of Divine (C.R.A.I.D); Mohammed felt that by man giving the Divine human characteristics that all religions were sought of guilty of feeding into racial superiority and racial inferiority complexes; thus, it was essential to remove these images of the Divine in order that humanity could truly come to know one another as equal human beings.

Imam Muhammad was the glue that has held this vulnerable Muslim American Movement(today known as American Society of Muslims) together for over thirty-three (33) years and his leadership was respected for the most part within his organization and outside his organization. No, one likes to talk about a successor but this is an aging organization and the mistake of not grooming a successor always lead to infighting and eventually sectarian division. Minister Farrakhan, Minister Silis Muhammad, Jesse Jackson, etc., our so-called black leaders are aging, but are still holding on to power, as opposed to appointing their successor while they are alive to minimized organizational confusion at their death. There was a young Imam out of Newark, New Jersey named Imam Mustafa El-Amin (authored two well respected works titled, "Al-Islam, Christianity and Freemasonry" and second book titled, "Freemasonry: Ancient Egypt and the Islamic Destiny") who sought to replace Imam Mohammed as the national leader of the Muslim American Movement (today known as American Society of Muslims) due his untimely resignation from his organization a few years ago, but opposition arose from the old guard and this writer is quite sure there are those jockeying for leadership over the organization at the death of Imam Mohammed.

One must understand that not all Black American Muslims were on the same page with Imam Mohammed. Some Muslims disagreed with Wallace Muhammad's organizational transition and viewed them as an act of betrayal against his Father Elijah Muhammad and his teachings and classified him as a traitor and hypocrite. Imam Mohammed’s succession and transition into mainstream Islam eventually led to Elijah Muhammad’s House being divided into perhaps over twenty independent and sovereign groups called the Nation of Islam. The first group who broke rank was headed by Minister Silis Muhammad in 1977 called the Lost-Found Nation of Islam in the West and he heads the next to the largest group, which is led by Minster Farrakhan. Minister Louis Farrakhan who would initially become one of the most vocal and visible leaders that dissented in 1978 and abandoned W.D. Muhammad's organization and re-established the Nation of Islam's teachings as they were taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Farrakhan began to attract a lot of those dissatisfied followers of Muhammad who felt betrayed by W.D. Muhammad's teachings. (Reference: Adib Rashad; (Islam, Black Nationalism and Slavery: A Detailed”).

At Saviour’s Day 2000 Imam Mohammed and Minister Louis Farrakhan publicly embraced each other as Muslim brothers and at least in a public way, had eased and resolved a twenty-five (25) year rift between the two Muslim leaders. This writer believes that the “cease fire” came about because the Nation of Islam since 1986 had began making baby steps toward what is deemed mainstream Islam. This writer can recall that Minister Farrakhan telephoning back to the Final Call Administration Building from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and requested that the Nation of Islam observe the month of Ramadan with the Islamic world; this was the first step the Nation of Islam made toward mainstream Islam. This writer is more partial toward the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and think it is a mistake for the Nation of Islam to embrace Orthodox Sunni Islam and not to continue to take in account the geo-political and social dynamics of a society that has refused to even having an honest conversation relative to race that is one hundred fifty (150) years overdue. (Reference: Louis Farrakhan audio tape 1986; United Arab Emirates).

Minister Farrakhan stated at Savior's Day 1982 in speech titled, "God's Judgment on America" stated, "I didn't consult you when I stood-up. I didn't ask you for your favor. I didn't ask one of you to come, and stand with me. And if you stand with me, I will standup. No. I didn't ask none; of you nothing! I asked myself, can you continue to live and be untrue to the man (The Honorable Elijah Muhammad) who taught you and made you what you are. Can you continue to live, knowing that your brothers and sisters are going deeper into the darkness of the abyss of a decadent world; and you have the knowledge to bring them out and you refuse to stand-up. I questioned myself, and when I satisfied myself, I stood whether you were with me or not; because a man of God doesn't look for where the people are going. I know where you are headed. You are headed into hell. And I be damn, if I am going with you; I will spend my life leading you out of it." (Reference: Louis Farrakhan: Savior's Day 1982 in speech titled, "God's Judgment on America").

Many of these dissenting Nation of Islam leaders and groups had been shaped by Jim Crowism and were not ready to overlook the racial dynamic in America. Yet, our nation had definitely evolved in certain social, political and economic areas, but racism and institutionalize racism appear almost be a permanent fixture in American life. This writer did not agree with a lot of Imam Mohammed’s religious philosophy and/or his political outlook because in one way he was this great idealist and had rejected the notion that human beings could not live in peace and harmony with one another regardless of nationality, race, color, ethnicity, etc., and had a deep seated conviction for humanity that forced even me, a critic to admire and respect his level of humanity. He in many ways had freed himself from the cancerous behavior of hate and was a perfect human example of love, these qualities were admirable and worthy of emulation; his work and Islamic contribution was worthy of him being a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, but since we do live a racist, intolerable and bias society against Muslims this accolade perhaps was never a consideration.

By Fahim A. Knight-EL

This writer learned a long time ago, that it is not wise to trust a politician or to place all your eggs in one basket. Politicians are masters at the art of lying and deceiving and often saying what people want to hear or saying what is politically expedient, but has no intentions of delivering on their promises of being good stewards of public policy. Many of them, exploit the concepts of expediency, in their quest to appease their financial backers and to ensure their interest are always front and center because this guarantees their own economic and political mobility; regardless of the political aspirations of their constituent base. This is what matters to a politician and in essence, all public policy is shaped outside the electorate by a few powerful individuals—their motive is always profit and greed and is far removed from the concept of democracy. (Reference: John Coleman; Conspirators Hierarchy: The Committee of 300).

Carroll Quigley in his book titled, “Tragedy and Hope” stated, “"...the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland; a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations.” (Reference: Carroll Quigley; “Tragedy and Hope”).

We should no be fooled and/or duped in to believing that the junior Senator Barack Obama from Illinois who just happens to be African American has risen to international prominence because America is the so-called land of opportunity—steeped in milk and honey; or the veteran Arizona Senator John McCain receiving the nomination of his party explains their rise. The United States citizens did not pick either of these candidates because they were selected for us, in which this entire presidential campaign is being carefully orchestrated by the Rockefellers and the The seven OIL SISTERS—Exxon, Mobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, Standard Oil, Texaco, Gulf (As of 2005, the surviving companies are ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, and BP, now members of the "supermajors" group) are the one’s that set the American and world agenda. There is no real effort to challenge big oil or to release this stranglehold that so-called foreign oil dependency has around the neck of the United States of America; this rhetoric is mere propaganda. The United States Government created these type illusions and clichés relative to blaming our foreign oil dependency, as being part responsible of contributing to a weak United States economy.

This writer gets a big laugh every time he sees a television commercial of T. Boone Pickens (according to Forbes he is worth three (3) billion), an oil billionaire analyzing the negative affects of U.S. dependency on foreign oil. Pickens who is a Rockefeller agent and a low level operative has raked in billions at the expense of helping to wreck the ecological system and has contributed to the massive erosion of ozone layer with his environmental unfriendly oil ventures. The Pickens dynasty has been unfriendly foes to the environment for decades but now he is so-called behind an environmental friendly energy plan, which to rescue the United States from foreign oil dependency. How can you trust them?

There is approximately eighty-five (85) million barrels of oil pump daily and the United States is consuming twenty-one (21) million barrels of oil daily, which amounts to twenty-five (25) percent daily; yet we are only four (4) percent of the world’s population. Moreover, the U.S. import dependency on foreign oil has climbed to seventy (70) percent and we are spending close to 700 billion dollars annually on foreign oil. All of the world politicians are under the dictates and control of big oil; the majority of all major political campaigns in the United States are secretly and covertly financed by the big oil conglomerates, which translate to mean, big oil dictates to the politicians and not the other way around.

Republican Presidential nominee John McCain just did not pick out of thin air, Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate, he was in direct consultation with the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberger and the Trilateral Commission, as well as with the Seven Oil Sisters bosses and those other invisible powerful lobbies who selected Governor Palin for the office of vice president. They use the controlled corporate media to bait the ignorant American people into a so-called debate and then convince them that the United States needs to view these rich oil Arab States as their enemies and the domestic oil crisis can only be resolved by allowing oil drilling in the pristine and virgin territories of Alaska.

Dr. Ali Memon in his book titled, “The Islamic Nation: Status and Future of Muslims in the New World Order stated, “In the past, United States foreign policy was almost exclusively made by government functionaries. In recent times, think tanks (organize groups of scholars) in conjunction with the news media have become increasingly influential. These groups are established by powerful interest groups are established by powerful interest groups (conservatives, liberals, Christians, Jews, etc.) to propose and advocate polices of interest to them. They recruit former and aspiring government officials and distinguished intellectuals to analyze issues of concern to them and to develop policy options. Their expertise comes from having held government positions or studied and taught the subject at universities; from those perspectives, they advance the point of view of the sponsoring organization. The media are always eager to report the policy options of these think tanks; they find them very useful. On specific issues, if there are conflicting views among the powerful (e.g., among the liberals and conservatives), then there is keen debate. However, when it comes to the interest of Israel or action against Muslims, there is hardly anyone who is influential enough to present an opposing view. Such decisions are quickly and unanimously made and implemented. American and European Muslims need to understand the importance of think tanks and the media in making public policy and in playing power politics. (Reference: Ali Memon; “The Islamic Nation: Status and Future of Muslims in the New World Order’ pg. 201).

These oil tycoons are the same descendants of the Robber Barons who decimated and emasculated those East Indians who had migrated across the Bering Strait sixteen (16) thousand years ago—but eventually became victims of white manifest destiny and social Darwinism. Governor Palin was chosen to lure her native Alaskans to sleep and to reduce the political opposition of her constituency while Senator McCain continues President George Bush’s masterful world strategy and objective, which is Oil theft by deception. The media will be used to incite and infuriate the masses of the people to opposed the agenda of the Alaskans environmentalist and naturalist (these environmental friendly lobbies are well organized and powerful) by having them believe that oil drilling in Alaska is a matter of United States National Security and any internal opposition must be obliterated.

Andy Stern in his book titled, “Oil From Rockefeller to Iraq and Beyond” gives this perspective relative to Alaska: “US President George W. Bush is keen to start developing the Alaskan oil reserves that lie under the Artic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). Although Bush presented a bill in 2001 that sought to allow development of a small part of the ANWR, opposition from Democrats and environmental groups was so strong that Congress never voted on the issue. Even if Bush, now with a larger Republican majority in Congress, manages to push through the bill, it will have little impact on the US’s long-term energy situation.”(Reference: Andy Stern: “Oil: From Rockefeller to Iraq and Beyond” pg. 223).

They will use the people of Alaska as mere cannon fodder by having Governor Palin dupe them as this sweet hometown girl who is just an ordinary so-called hockey mom, but do not understand that she has recently been initiated into the circle of the Roundtable and has taking a solemn oath much more binding then her vice presidential nomination oath.

William Cooper in his monumental treatise titled, “Behold A Pale Horse” stated, “Through ignorance or misplaced trust we as a people have abdicated our role as the watchdog of our government. Our government was founded ‘of the people, for the people, by the people.’ There was no mention or intent ever to abdicate our role and place our total trust in a handful of men who meet secretly to decide our fate. In fact, the structure of our government was designed to prevent that from ever happening. If we had done our jobs as Citizens we would never have reached this point. Most of us are completely ignorant as to even the most basic functions of our government. We have truly become a nation of sheep—and sheep are always eventually led to slaughter. It is time to stand up in the manner of our forefathers and walk like men.” The Roundtable truly don’t give a damn about the winners and losers in this 2008 presidential race or Democrat versus Republicans this deception is to convince the American people to believe that we live in a participatory Democracy. (Reference: William Cooper; “Behold A Pale Horse” pg. 234).

This is not necessarily about the winning of an election, as much it’s about setting and changing the United Sates and world energy dynamic for the next two to three decades. Governor Palin’s inexperience and political ignorance was weighed against her greatest asset and her political liabilities were compromised by these powerful men; it would be greed and big oil positioning that factored more so than her ability to function as a top level politician. Governor Palin has the ability to lobby and deliver to big oil what they want and right now Alaska is high on the radar screen. Thus, they have the power and the influence to shape public policy toward their interest regardless of who is in the White House. The ultimate objective in selecting Governor Palin was that she has the ability to guarantee the least political resistance from the people of this vital strategic region, while big oil will reap trillions of dollars from the Alaskan Oil reserves for the next fifty years in the name of so-called freeing the United States dependency on foreign Middle Eastern oil.

We have just embarked on the seventh year anniversary of the so-called September 11, 2001 tragedy, which the world witness the bombing of the World Trade Center hoax in New York City. Yet, as the Bush administration for the last eight (8) years aimed to create this ‘us versus you’ (which translated to mean Islam versus the West) mentality, while at same time the U.S. Government was still cozying up to Islamic leaders and governments like a strung-out junkie vying for that next drug fix—buying Middle Eastern oil and entertaining these reactionary Islamic monarch leaders with the highest level of diplomacy.

Moreover, while the masses are led to believe that Muslims and Islam were their enemies and at war against the West—creating fear and tension within the inside of our society and just forty-three (43) days into our nation’s 9/11 grieving and mourning the United States Congress passed the U.S.Patriot Act (stripping the United States Citizens bear of their Constitutional Rights) with no real resistance from its intended victims—its own United States citizens, but many of us foolishly believed and thought that the U.S Patriot Act was aimed at so-called foreign ‘terrorist’ it still hasn’t dawn on many of us yet, that this legislation was tailor-made for the United States populous). This event led to Bush declaring two wars—Iraq and Afghanistan all in the name of oil.

The United States Government has truly “dumb-down” America and giving us Governor Sarah Palin is the latest example, of the power of persuasion and manipulation.

Mark Twain wrote in the “Mysterious Stranger” Here is his reference to war, “And what does it amounts to? Said Satan, with his evil chuckle. Nothing at all. You gain nothing: you always come out where you went in. For a million years the race has gone on monotonously propagating itself and monotonously re-performing this dull nonsense to what end?"

Twain continues, “No wisdom can guess! Who gets a profit out of it? Nobody but a parcel of usurping little monarchs and nobilities who despise you; would feel defile if you touched them; would shut the door in your face if you proposed to call; whom you slave for, fight for, die for, and are not ashamed of it, but proud; whose existence is a perpetual insult to you and you are afraid to resent it; who are mendicants supported by your alms, yet assume toward you the airs of benefactor toward beggar; who address you in the language of master toward slave, and are answered in the language of slave toward master; who are worshipped by you with your mouth, while in your heart if you have one you despise yourselves for it. The first man was a hypocrite and a coward, qualities which have not failed yet in his line; it is the foundation upon which all civilizations have been built.” (Reference: Russell S. Bowen; “The Immaculate Deception: The Bush Crime Family Exposed” pg.1).

The former Soviet Union had fought an over decade long war against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda for, which they lost dismissal for the control over the rights to run oil pipelines through this Central Asian nation, as well as dominate the heroin drug trade market. The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the United States State Department instigated the recent Georgia crisis because Bush was successful of altering and shaping public opinion in 2001 (the 9/11 hoax) of creating control chaos with a covert objective of luring the American people to sleep with various international distractions and at the same time strategically increased his presidential approval ratings, which got him a second term in office.

The Bush White House by creating the Russian and Georgia crisis was attempting to sublimely set the nation's mind on Senator John McCain, a former military prisoner of war, as our next Commander in Chief as being the only candidate ready to deal with Vladimir Putin. It did not matter to McCain and the Republican Party that Governor Palin had never visited Washington D.C. and had no idea of how the world functions; in particular in the area of foreign policy and lacking understanding of the complexity of the global and international community. This did not matter to these Den of Thieves who had their eyes set on financially capitalizing off some of America’s last untapped oil reserves. This political novice agreed to sign on to further enslave the citizens of the United States. The masses of people in the United States ignorantly by giving consent to oil drilling in Alaska expects this to relieve our economic tension at the gas pump, but failed to realize this is not about the American people—this is about the further enriching of the Rockefellers, Morgans, Rothschilds, etc.

President Lincoln stated, “The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and cause me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggravated in a few hands and the republic is destroyed.” These were the prophetic words spoken by President Abraham Lincoln.

Gary Allen and Larry Abraham in their book titled, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy” maintained that the power Elite creates pressure from the top and pressure from the bottom by crafting artificial crisis in order to manipulate the political, economic and social lives of humanity—the so-called oil crisis has been well planned by this powerful sector and instigated by them, sending the world into panic, while at the same time expanding their own channels of production and distribution that evolves around high finance—money and power are their only objective.

Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain are both low level operatives of the Roundtable that have been given a well prepared script and an agenda; they would not have gotten this far without the approval of the powerful committee of 300. If the truth be told the powerful Zionist Jewish lobbies are the real brain trust behind shaping the United States Foreign Policy and her domestic policy. When The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) says, “jump” all U.S. politicians and international politicians say. “How High Boss?”

The author Aldous Huxley in the book titled, “Brave New World” stated, “There is of course, no reason why the new totalitarianisms should resemble the old. Governments by clubs and firing squads, by artificial famine, mass imprisonment and mass deportation, is not merely inhuman (nobody cares much about that nowadays); it is demonstrably inefficient and in the age of advanced technology, in efficiency is the sin against the Holy Ghost. A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and school teachers. . .” (Reference: Terrance Jackson; “Putting it All Together: World Conquest, Global Genocide and African Liberation’ pg. 21).

Whether it is McCain/Palin or Obama/Biden, Alaska will be delivered to this hidden powerful Elite for oil and gas exploitation; agreed public policy will take a back seat to the interest and demands of the Elitist. They will continue to feed the ignorant masses media decoys and have us fighting over a perceived enemy (so-called Islamic Extremist) that does not exist. This writer went to his front yard on Saturday September 13, 2008 to retrieve his morning newspaper and inside the News and Observer, the “The Durham News” there was this well put together DVD package inserted inside the paper with a slick marketing look; without a doubt this publication was well put together and it was free. The DVD was titled, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West” it was a trailer publication of documentary directed and edited by Wayne Kopping. This writer was actually in the process of writing this article, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy: There is No Other Name to Call it by.”

The writer immediately came to the conclusion, that this was an anti-Islamic propaganda ploy, it stated, “From the creators of ‘Relentless: the Struggle for Peace in the Middle East’ comes a new film that will change the way you look at the world. Obsession is a film about the threat of radical Islam to Western Civilization. Using unique footage from Arab television, it reveals an ‘insider’s view’ of the hatred the radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination.”

My response would be that the Kissingers, Rothschilds, Morgans, Rockefellers, Oppenhemiers, etc., are far more dangerous to the international security of the world than some Islamic Radicals who have been drawn into war to defend their sovereignty and land rights, but these den of thieves and the others that aren’t mentioned, are the most dangerous Cabal of Emperors in the history of the world. They rule with an iron fist by deception. This writer immediately had drawn the conclusion that this documentary titled, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West” was sophisticated propaganda from those who control mass mediums.

In an article titled, “Who Rules America” stated, “THERE IS NO GREATER POWER in the world today than that wielded by the manipulators of public opinion in America. No king or pope of old, no conquering general or high priest ever disposed of a power even remotely approaching that of the few dozen men who control America's mass media of news and entertainment. Their power is not distant and impersonal; it reaches into every home in America, and it works its will during nearly every waking hour".

"It is the power that shapes and molds the mind of virtually every citizen, young or old, rich or poor, simple or sophisticated. The mass media form for us our image of the world and then tell us what to think about that image. Essentially everything we know—or think we know—about events outside our own neighborhood or circle of acquaintances comes to us via our daily newspaper, our weekly news magazine, our radio, or our television.It is not just the heavy-handed suppression of certain news stories from our newspapers or the blatant propagandizing of history-distorting TV "docudramas" that characterizes the opinion-manipulating techniques of the media masters. They exercise both subtlety and thoroughness in their management of the news and the entertainment that they present to us. For example, the way in which the news is covered: which items are emphasized and which are played down; the reporter's choice of words, tone of voice, and facial expressions; the wording of headlines; the choice of illustrations—all of these things subliminally and yet profoundly affect the way in which we interpret what we see or hear. "

"On top of this, of course, the columnists and editors remove any remaining doubt from our minds as to just what we are to think about it all. Employing carefully developed psychological techniques, they guide our thought and opinion so that we can be in tune with the "in" crowd, the "beautiful people," the "smart money." They let us know exactly what our attitudes should be toward various types of people and behavior by placing those people or that behavior in the context of a TV drama or situation comedy and having the other TV characters react in the Politically Correct way".

Most people do not know and can not conceive that they are modern day slaves to a powerful hidden and unseen slave master. These ruthless vipers and dictators have Obama and McCain in a chokehold, as well as all humanity. Also, Governor Palin was a missing piece on the CHESS BOARD, I do not want to come across as misogynist, but these powerful men would never share their power with Governor Sarah Palin or any other woman. She is just a political tool to be used to get to those untapped oil reserves in Alaska. They of course will reward her handsomely for her loyalty and obedience to their diabolic cause.

The Five Percenters (Nation of Gods and Earths): The Poor Righteous Teachers

By Fahim A. Knight-EL
The organization which is passionately named the Nation of Gods and Earths, better known as the Five Percenters was founded by Clarence 13X Smith, the Father in 1964 in New York City. Islam is defined in the Supreme Alphabet (which was actually written by Minister Malcolm X) as "I-Self-Lord-And-Master (I.S.L.A.M) and it further states in the Supreme Alphabet 'M" Master is one who KNOWS and UNDERSTANDS all things in his circumference (Atmosphere), the Master's Culture is ISLAM for ALLAH is the MASTER of THE KNOWN, and UNKNOWN."

Clarence Smith (Father Allah) was born in the rural southern town of Danville, Virginia on February 22, 1928 to Louis and Mary Smith and during the height of the Jim Crow South and like many blacks sought to migrate to the northern cities in search of social and economic parity. Clarence Smith landed in Harlem, New York in 1946, perhaps ten years after the decline of the Harlem Renaissance. It appears that in 1950 Clarence 13X joined the United States Army and fought in the Korean War, while over seas fighting in the United States arm service his wife had joined the Nation of Islam. He also became a member of the Nation of Islam under the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the 1950s. Clarence 13 X was expelled from the Nation of Islam in 1963; there exist various theories and accounts about what led to his expulsion, some argue it was his disobedience towards not adhering to the Restrictive Laws of Islam. Others argue that he was questioning the divinity ascribed to Master Fard Muhammad by the Nation of Islam; in particular, Clarence 13X was questioning Master Wali Fard Muhammad's ethnic identity, which according to the teachings he was a half original man but who looked more Caucasian than black. (Reference: Lord Jamar: The 5% Album).

This allege dispute led Clarence 13X, the Father to doubt Master Wali Fard Muhammad's God-hood divinity status and questioned the religious credibility assigned to him by the Nation of Islam's theology. Clarence 13X, the Father espoused that Allah was the Original Man—black (not half original). This is what was reported to be Clarence 13X response:

"The Muslims of the Nation of Islam have never seen W.D. Fard and they worship him as Allah. But they say that they don't worship a mystery god. So you are worshipping in blind faith. Elijah said we had to stand up on our own two feet. You can bring Elijah, and any of his ministers to Rockland Palace and he will tell you that I am Allah. You or any Muslims can't judge me or my sons and your lessons say that anything made weak and wicked from the Original Man is devil, and you are running around worshipping a Half Original Man and not the Blackman." Minister Malcolm X had a tough and a no nonsense Fruit of Islam (military training of men who belongs to Islam in North America) captain named Joseph X who Minister Malcolm X brought from Detroit's Temple number 1 and who later was renamed Yusuf Shah by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Captain Shah was perhaps the mindset behind Clarance 13X being ousted from the Nation of Islam. In the Nation of Islam you are taught to obey all of those in authority over you, unless it conflicts with your religion. Clarance 13X was a member of Temple #7 New York City under Minister Malcolm X and was training as a student minister. Both Minister Malcolm X and Clarence 13X would be eventually expelled from the organization for various levels of insubordination. (Reference: Pen Black; “ Gods Earths and 85ers”).

The Nation of Gods and Earths is not that well known outside urban black America and that is not to say, it has languished in obscurity because that is the furthest thing from the truth. But this group seems to share a high level of popularity amongst many young African American youth in large urban cities like New York City, Newark, Boston, New Haven, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta and it is a hotbed in smaller New Jersey Cities such as Asbury Park and Neptune, etc., and on most of your historical black colleges and universities campuses there exist the Five Percenters. The Five Percenters have been difficult to classify because many of its young members have been known to have street gang affiliations and some view them as a group of lawless thugs and ex-convicts running criminal enterprises—selling drugs, gambling, pimping, running numbers, gang banging, ‘thuging’, etc., disguised as a pseudo Islamic religious organization called the Five Percenters. This writer does not necessarily share in that characterization of the Nation of Gods and Earths, but no doubt like all organization it has internal reactionary forces. (Reference: Michael Muhammad Knight: The Five Percenters: Islam, Hip-hop and the Gods of New York).

Mattias Gardell, a Swedish sociologist and theologian who was a visiting professor at Duke University the mid-1990s had this to say about the Nation of Gods and Earths, in his monumental book titled, In the Name of Elijah Muhammad: Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam,  stated: "In June 1969, Father Allah was shot to death by unknown assassins. His Earliest followers, a group of nine called the First Nine Born, carried on the teachings in which a leading role was assumed by justice. In the years to follow, the Five Percenters were feared by the police to be an unruly group of black teenagers renowned for direct actions, such as muggings and bank robberies. In an FBI memo, the Five Percent Nation was said to constitute a 'mysterious armed group of Negro youth' who were 'prepared to die' fighting white supremacy. Eventually, they obtained recognition as a youth organization and municipal authorities paid for their headquarters, 'Allah School Mecca' in Harlem, until 1988. Initially a New York--based youth group, the Five Percenters had a boom in the late 1980s, with its principle missionaries in the hip-hop movement, and can now be found all over the East Coast, parts of the Midwest, and the greater cities on the West Coast. . .the Five Percenters mainly are strong among the urban youth, musicians, artists, teachers and gang members." (Reference: Mattias Gardell; "In the Name of Elijah Muhammad: Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam" pg. 224).

The message of the Nation of Gods and Earths was definitely 'evangelized' by Hip-Hop artists such as Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Poor Righteous Teacher, Wu Tang Clan, Brand Nubians, Busta Rhymes, Erkyah Badu, NAS, etc. It was these rappers or Hip Hop artists that did more to promote the Five Percenters message far beyond what any cleric could have ever done standing behind a pulpit. They used perhaps the most powerful medium—music to inspire and communicate to black youth—they were teaching with their esoteric, occult and Gnostic rhymes (waling a free thinking philosophy rooted in both humanism and black nationalism) and converting thousands of youth (mainly black and Hispanic) to the Nation of Gods and Earths, as well as appealing to thousand of sympathizers that desired to take up the mantle, which to socially and politically go after those blacks who were made blind, deaf and dumb by the ten (10) percent. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad defined the job, duty and responsibility of the Poor Righteous Teachers (the Five Percenters) which is to redeem those he called the eighty-five (85) percent; in Student Enrollment he asked the question: "Who is the 85%? Answer: "The uncivilized people, poison animal eaters, slaves from mental death and power. People who do not know the living God or their origin in this world and they worship what they know not what; and who are easily led in the wrong direction but hard to lead in the right direction." (Reference: Elijah Muhammad; “Student Enrollment Lessons” for Registered Muslims).

Then the question arises, What is the Five Percent Nation of Gods and Earths? This organization has not received the scholarly attention as other social and religious movements in the United States because its history and philosophical teachings being steeped and shrouded in controversy and is irreconcilable historical ties to its parent organization the Nation of Islam (lets be clear there are many philosophical differences between the NGE and the NOI the former has a secular worldview and the latter has an Islamic religious worldview). Perhaps Wakeel Allah's book titled, In The Name of Allah: A History of Clarence 13X and the Five Percenters published in 2007, which represents a pulling together of scattered Five Percent lessons and history that has been effectively passed down as part of the organization rich oral tradition. Wakeel Allah is a Five Percenter and therefore his writing stands as being credible and authoritative, as well as representative of the organization's worldview. This book was forty-five years over-do and it gives the organization a legitimate documented history and theoretical reference point. No, one could have perfected the galvanizing of this oral history of the Five Percenter, but a Five Percenter. (Reference: Wakeel Allah; “In The Name of Allah: A History of Clarence 13X and the Five Percenters").

The Nation of Islam was founded by Master Wali Fard Muhammad on July 4, 1930 in Detroit, Michigan, but it was Noble Drew Ali of the Moorish Science Temple of America in 1913 in Newark, New Jersey that first introduced the religion of Islam into the African American community whom they both called the Asiatic Black man. This writer will not go into the history of the Nation of Islam, but the readers can refer to this writer’s article on June 1, 2008 titled, The Nation of Islam: A Concise History; A True Account” http://fahimknightsworld.blogspot.com/2008/06/nation-of-islam-concise-history-true.html The Nation of Gods and Earth (the Five Percenters) might-be one of the least known Islamic organizations (this identity is being used loosely and cautiously because many Five Percents do not consider themselves Muslims, they make every attempt to distance themselves from the Nation of Islam) in America. Yet, there are other members of the Nation of Gods and Earths that quasi embraces the Nation of Islam. However, their ideological lexicon is somewhat inextricably tied to the religion of Islam, but mainstream Islam views both, the Nation of Islam and the Nation of Gods and Earths as heretical because its founder Clarence 13X metamorphosed after his defection from the Nation of Islam and revealed himself as Allah, the Father. The teachings of mainstream Orthodox Islam and according to the Holy Qur'an would condemn this idea as setting up partners with Allah (God) and Allah has no associates nor could Allah appear in the person of a man.

This transition that Clarence 13X, Father Allah made was no different than what the Nation of Islam teaches relative to Allah who came in the person Master W. Fard Muhammad. There had been other so-called incarnated prophets such as Father Divine, Daddy Grace, Noble Drew Ali, and Charles T. Russell, etc. The Nation of Islam's organizational founder Master Fard Muhammad prepared many lessons such as the "Student Enrollment," Supreme Mathematic, Actual Facts, etc., in which only registered Muslims had access to these teachings. These "Lessons" were originally given to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as part of his examination by Master Fard Muhammad (where he was taught day and night for three and half years).

In the "Student Enrollment" it asked perhaps the most essential question relative to the Five Percenters ideology: Who is the Original Man?: Answer: The Original Man is the Asiatic Black man, the maker, the owner, the cream of the planet earth, God of the Universe" So the Five Percents refer to each other as God (and they greet each other by saying "Peace God"). In the "Supreme Mathematics" lesson it stated: "Allah is God. The Supreme Being, Black man who is the original is God, Allah, lord of all the worlds, supreme ruler of the universe which is everything-sun, moon and stars (god is the sun in the solar system, the woman is the moon, and the child is the stars). The best part which shows God's power. God is one. God is life, God is Love, God is intelligence. God is one who possesses the supreme power and force to govern all things in existence. (The Universe which is everything) God is able to do all things."

In Elijah Muhammad's book titled, Message to the Black Man in America, first published 1965; this book consists of thirteen (13) chapters and eight-two (82) subchapters. Moreover, The first thirty (30) pages, deal with the concept of Allah (God) because Muhammad felt that it was essential that the Asiatic Black man and woman—the tribe of Shabazz had to have a clear perspective on who God was and his origin. Muhammad takes us back 76 trillion years ago to the origin of God, at least when he decided to will himself out of total triple darkness. Thus, he teaches us the true reality of God. Muhammad asked the question, "Who is that Mystery God?" or "Is God a Spirit or a Man?" These two questions still have the scholars and layman baffled. (Reference: Elijah Muhammad; “Message to the Black Man in America").

The Nation of Gods and Earth (Five Percenters) derives its name, philosophy and the basis of the organization's theory from certain aspects of the "Student Enrollment" the lesson states: Question: Who are the 5% On This Poor Part of The Earth? "They are the poor righteous teachers who do not believe in the teachings of the 10%.; and are all wise and knows who the living God is and teaches that the living God is the Son of Man; the Supreme Being, the black man of Asia;. and teach freedom, justice and equality to all the human families of the planet earth; Otherwise known: as civilized people, also as Moslems and Moslem sons." (Reference: Elijah Muhammad; “Student Enrollment Lessons” for Registered Muslims).

The Nation of Islam and the Nations of Gods and Earths share commonality and an affinity towards the "Lessons" but the interpretation of the "Lessons" is for the most part, is where the two groups part company (the NGE under Father Allah created a set of catechism lessons known as the 120 degree lessons) . The Nation of Gods and Earths use the "Lessons" more as a secular tool, which to Build a scientific, logical and mathematical philosophical reality and explanation for every thought that governs the universal order of things. The Nation of Islam teaches that Mathematics is Islam and Islam is Mathematic, but the "Lessons" are used and taught to reaffirm the Nation of Islam's theology and justify the two God-like minds in Master Fard Muhammad and Elijah Muhammad. These "Lessons" must-be recited 100 correctly at the satisfaction of the Department of Supreme Wisdom before you can move on to said lesson number one.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated in "The Theology of Time" lectures that: "After learning Mathematics, which is Islam and Islam is Mathematics, it stands true, you can always prove it at no limit of time. Then you must learn to use it and secure some benefit while you are living, that is luxury, money, good home, friendship, in all walks of life. Sit yourself in heaven at once! That is the greatest desire of your brother and Teachers. Now you must speak the Language, so you can use your mathematical Theology in the proper terms, otherwise you will not be successful, unless you speak well, for she knows all about you." What is the Mathematics for today? The Nation of Gods and Earths must master the 12 Jewels of Islam--knowledge, Wisdom, Understanding, Freedom, Justice, Equality, Food, Clothing, Shelter, Love, Peace and Happiness in order build a new civilization. (Reference: Elijah Muhammad—Edited by Abass Rassoull; “The Theology of Time").

The Five Percenters have replaced the Nation of Islam's religious theology with the "Lessons" which is perhaps viewed by them as high science with an empirical frame of reference that can be counted and measured. The Supreme Mathematics, The Supreme Alphabet, The Student Enrollment (1-10)* The Lost Found Muslim Lesson No.1 (1-14)* English Lesson C-1 (1-36)* The Lost Found Muslim Lesson No.2 (1-40)* The Actual Facts* The Solar Facts. The Nation of Gods and Earths are not bind by the Restrictive Laws of Islam and each Five Percenters have free realm to interpreted the "Lessons" and build towards his/her own personal understanding without the restraints of religious organizational dogmas and tenets, but functions more as a culture and a way of life.

There is a new book titled,Nation of Islam Decoded: The Sciences of Mankind seems to at least possess a very interesting title. This writer is very familiar with a lot of the Nation of Islam scholars, but is not familiar with this author Anthony Muhammad and his work. I think the book is 76 pages and I personally do not think one can adequately and substantially decode all those topics that the trailer mentions in such a minimum amount of research space. Although, the Nation of Islam's theology and the "Supreme Wisdom" lessons are very comprehensive and intriguing. This writer wonders, what their perception is as hierarchical leaders within the Nation of Islam relative to a book titled, “Nation of Islam Decoded”.

This writer over the many years has had the opportunity to meet and talk with some of the Nation of Islam top scholars and ministers such as Minister Jabril Muhammad (Perhaps authored one of the most definitive books on the Nation of Islam theology titled, This Is The One: We Need Not Look To Another), Minister Abdul Akbar Muhammad, Minister Abdul Allah Muhammad, Minister Tynetta Muhammad, Dr. Adul Alim Muhammad and many more of the organizations top intelligencer. The Nation of Islam founder Wali Fard Muhammad gave teachings what he described as being "Right and Exact" and his mentor the Honorable Elijah Muhammad would argue that the "Life Giving Teachings" do not need any "decoding". I just do not think you can evaluate and assess all those subjects in seventy six pages; in particular not in an empirical research study that requires heavy citations. However, I must admit it is refreshing to hear and see younger Nation of Islam scholars delving into the research side of Nation of Islam's theology and philosophy.

The Nation of Gods and Earths understand the question given in the Student Enrollment: “What is the duty of a Civilized Person?” Answer: “To teach the uncivilized people who are savage, civilization, righteousness, the knowledge of himself; the science of everything in life, love, peace and happiness." However, many of these young Gods and Earths do find an affinity towards Minister Louis Farrakhan and the present day Nation of Islam. The Nation of Gods and Earths' Hip-Hop artists do sample Farrakhan's speeches on their albums and they identify with his willingness to speak truth to power and respect his ability to speak 'science'. There are very few black leaders in America that command the respect of the Nation of Gods and Earths—Farrakhan is one.

The late Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad, former national spokesman of Minister Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam was loved and endeared by the Five Percenters; Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad commanded the attention, honor and respect of the Nation of Gods and Earths unlike any Nation of Islam spokesperson before or since. He spoke their language and understood their culture and Dr. Khallid Muhammad subsequently recruited many of them to the Nation of Islam and when he was suspended from the Nation of Islam in 1994, he took many of them over to the New Black Panther Party. Dr. Muhammad understood the complexity of ten (10) percent that is spoken of in the "Supreme Wisdom Lessons" that entity that has a stranglehold on all of humanity. This was really the part of the theological equation that got Dr. Muhammad ostracized and ridiculed; was his open exposure of the Zionist (the 10%), very few desire to tackle this sector because of the inordinate amount of power and influence they have over humanity.

Question: who is the 10%?—Answer: “The rich, the slave makers of the poor; who teach the poor lies to believe that the almighty true and living God; is a spook and can not be seen with the physical eye. Otherwise known as the bloodsucker of the poor." Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad had inspired rap artists like Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Paris, X-Niggas, Professor Griff, Prince Hakim, etc. Here is Dr. Muhammad exposing that 10%, “Meaning whatever they did, they did it for themselves first and they used us so that we could clear a path for themselves. Let us go on. In the words of Kaufman, "The Jewish struggle for equality and fair treatment was linked to the struggles of Blacks for greater opportunity". It was not a struggle of Equals Jonathan Kaufman, the White Jew says. "Jews did not consider their plight equal to that of Blacks, but they recognized in the Black struggle for Rights an elements that could benefit them and condition with which they could sympathize; accordingly, several rich and powerful Jews among them prominent leaders of the U.S. Zionist Movement co-founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The NAACP founded in 1909, got its first African-American Chairperson in 1975." It was in 1975, before you had a Black Chairperson of the NAACP and it was founded in 1909. Did you hear me? After the death of Chairman Kevi Kaplan, a Boston Jew. The NAACP's highest honor, the Spingarn Medal, is named after one of its earliest Jewish leaders ----- Joel Spingarn. "Jewish influence in African­-American affairs climaxed in the Civil Rights Era of the 1950's and 1960's." When according to Jonathan Kaufman, the White Jew in Broken Alliance, "three quarters of the funding raise." How much? "Three quarter of the funding raised by the three major Civil Rights Organizations: The student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Congress for Racial Equal­ity (CORE) and Martin Luther King, Jr. (SCLC) Southern Christian Leadership Conference, came from Jewish sources. (Reference: Khallid Abdul Muhammad: “The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews”: The Kean College Speech—Union, New Jersey).

Jewish influence in the movement was personalized and per­sonified by Stanley Levisohn, one of King's {Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,} two closest advisors, the other being Andrew Young. Levisohn drafted King's speeches, handled his finances and served as his chief strate­gist. This coalition of un-equals came under stress, severe stress after the mid 1960's when Black Power came to town empha­sizing Self-Reliance and African-American control over their organizations. Much of this comes to us from Blacks and Jews News and Dr. Tony Martin has done much of this research for us. But we are drawing here from Mr. Jonathan Kaufman of Broken Alliance. Brothers and sisters, "these African-American assertions of independence didn't sit well with Jews, who had grown accustomed to over lordship of the Civil Rights Movement. Not to mention great influence in the economic life of the African-American Community. While pockets of Jewish Liberalism remained, the dominant Jewish posture was now characterized by the demise of benevolent paternalism and its replacement by aggressor hostility to continuing African-American progress. The new policy brought some impressive Jewish victories as Jews leveraged off of their great influence with the United States Polity to thwart the rising ambitions of Black folk. In 1968, Jews defeated the efforts of Blacks in America in Brooklyn, New York to control the education of their own [Black folk] children in the Ocean Hill n Brownsville Affair. In 1977, the major Jewish Organizations included themselves as 'friends of the court" in the BAKKE case to defeat Affirmative Action programs for Black people, Hispanics, Asian-Americans and Native-Ameri­cans. (Reference: Khallid Abdul Muhammad: “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews”: The Kean College Speech—Union, New Jersey).

This writer in the mid-1990s purchased a book titled, "The Problem Book" that was authored by Dr. Malachi Z. York, formerly known as As-Sayyid Al-Imaam Isa Al-Haadi Al Mahd former leader of the Nubian Islaamic Hebrews (better known as the Ansaaru Allah Community). Imam Isa took his followers and organization through many philosophical and ideological transitions and eventually renamed his followers Nuwaubians and set-up his headquarters in the little small town of Edenton, Georgia. He is presently serving over 120 years in Federal Prison. Dr. York's book to me appeared to be a good effort of pulling together this rich oral tradition of scattered Five Percent lessons that were often being passed down as hand written dictations and notations. But most Nation of Gods and Earths committed the lessons known as the 120 to sheer memory and could recite them verbatim with unimaginable accuracy. This writer believes that the Five Percenters attacked Dr. York and in response to their attacks Dr. York compiled and edited all the Five Percenter's teachings in his book titled, "The Problem Book" which to exposed the Five Percenters.

This is what Dr. York stated, "The Basis for Myself, Dr. Malachi Z. York, Putting Together This Book Is Quite Simple. With My Experiences From The 70's On With Those Who Call Themselves The 5% Nation And Whatever Branches They've Broken Off To Now. I've Seen One Thing That Stayed The Same. The Leadership Or Elders Control Most Of The Lessons, Photostats, Mistypes, Misprints And Distribute Them In Small Portions To Its Members. I use To see This On The Streets. Why Is It They Won't Put All The Lessons Together In One Book? Very Few 5% Have Any Lessons. Most 5% Were Exposed To The Teachings In The Prisons. None Taking The Time To Sit Down and Collect All The Lessons And Plus Lessons And Put Them In Book Form So That Each Member Can Study and Decipher For Themselves". (Reference: Malachi Z. York; "The Problem Book").

York further stated, "By Putting This Book Out, In No Way Do I Want To Give The Impression That I Consider Everything In It To Be Factual And True. No, I Put This Book Out That The Young Would Get A Fair Chance At Studying It As Well As Putting It In Hard Cover Gives It A Chance To Get In The Hands Of Many Others Who Would Not Attend Ciphers Or Parliaments Or Dare To Come Down Into Harlem, To Visit Mecca. This Way The Book Can Last Forever And Be On The Shelves Of Schools, Libraries, And In Personal Homes As A Reference To A Group Of Young Black And Latino Americans Who Have Been Influenced By Islamism And Another One Of Its Many Sects." (Reference: Malachi Z.York; "The Problem Book").

This writer as CEO of the KEEPING It REAL THINK Tank has been building with a young brother in Durham, North Carolina off and on for about three years by the name of Hakem Allah and another young brother by the of name Kwadjo Bediako, both have helped me to understand the Nation of Gods and Earths just a little better. They have talked openly with me about the Nation of Gods and Earths philosophy and ideology; although we do not agree on everything and I am quite sure some of what I have written, they might not agree with, but they would have to accept the fact that this is my perspective and my build. These two Gods are not responsible for any of my intellectual shortcomings or perceived inaccuracies. This writer also gathered a lot of knowledge from a writer who is probably a Nation of Islam member named AKIL who authored, "From Niggas to Gods"; Vol 1 and Vol 2, but the writer's style is indicative of the Five Percenters common sense, but mathematical reasoning.
