Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

#MikeBrown Is Only The Latest Black Victim To Be Smeared For Smoking Pot #RenishaMcBride #JonathanFerrell

Law enforcement in Ferguson, Missouri still haven’t told the public about the facts that preceded the deadly shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. What they have told us is that he was the suspect in a robbery. And now, that he may have had marijuana in his system at the time of his death.

Toxicology reports are a standard element of autopsies. But neither of these facts have been linked to the firing of six deadly bullets by a police officer into his body and head. Still, some right-wing pundits including Rush Limbaugh have already seized on the Brown’s possible use of marijuana to villify him. It’s the same sort of portrayal that prompted the viral #IfTheyGunnedMeDown hashtag, in which news outlets chose to disseminate images of Michael Brown that might make him seem more like a thug than a young teen who was starting college in two days. And none of it has anything to do with whether he should have died.  | ThinkProgress

Attack on Ebola Clinic in Liberia could lead to larger outbreak. Is this the plan?

7042 lores-Ebola-Zaire-CDC Photo.jpgWho is behind the attack on an clinic in Liberian capital's largest slum?

This is one of those stories that don't make sense.  Why would anybody or group of people attack or as the reports state, loot, a clinic with the deadly virus Ebola, sending the patients into the surrounding community?

Notice that the articles don't mention that the patients were killed, but sent fleeing for their lives into the densely populated 'slum.'

Why would the 'looters' take blood-stained sheets and mattresses from a quarantined center?  Where the looters hired? Who were they hired by? Did they know the dangers of Ebola or ignorant pawns?

One thing is for-sure, this will lead to a lager outbreak of the deadly virus Ebola which continues to devastate the lives of the Liberians in various ways and Africa as a whole.

Ebola spread fears rise as clinic looted, Liberian officials say | Fox News
Liberian officials fear Ebola could soon spread through the capital's largest slum after residents raided a quarantine center for suspected patients and took items including blood-stained sheets and mattresses.
The violence in the West Point slum occurred late Saturday and was led by residents angry that patients were brought to the holding center from other parts of Monrovia, Tolbert Nyenswah, assistant health minister, said Sunday.

Local witnesses told Agence France Presse that there were armed men among the group that attacked the clinic.
"They broke down the doors and looted the place. The patients all fled," said Rebecca Wesseh, who witnessed the attack and whose report was confirmed by residents and the head of Health Workers Association of Liberian, George Williams.
Up to 30 patients were staying at the center and many of them fled at the time of the raid, said Nyenswah. Once they are located they will be transferred to the Ebola center at Monrovia's largest hospital, he said.

Following Israel's Assault on Gaza, 'Freedom Flotilla' to Sail Against Siege

Following Israel's latest military assault on Gaza, civil society groups from around the world say they are moving forward with plans to break the blockade on this besieged strip by sailing a "freedom flotilla" into Gaza Port.

At a meeting in Istanbul, Turkey this week, the international Freedom Flotilla Coalition (FFC) and numerous other groups came to the conclusion that "it is the responsibility of civil society worldwide to sail to Gaza," according to a press statement. They committed to making the voyage during 2014, which has been coined by the United Nations as the "International Year of Solidarity With the Palestinian People."

While the group did not publicly disclose a launch location or date, they announced that they expect participation from civil society organizations across the globe — from Greece to South Africa to Jordan to Malaysia—as a counter to "the complicity of world governments" in the blockade on Gaza.  | Common Dreams



Keystone XL's Climate Impact Worse Than Thought: Study

The climate impacts of the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline could be worse than thought, a new analysis shows.

According to the study published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change, completing this fossil fuel infrastructure project, which would run from Hardisty, Alberta to Steele City, Nebraska, could lead to increased oil production. That in turn will cause a decrease in global oil prices, leading to greater oil consumption, the analysis states.

"We find that for every barrel of increased production, global oil consumption would increase 0.6 barrels owing to the incremental decrease in global oil prices," the study states.

“If that’s the case, that’d be a big greenhouse-gas impact,” stated co-author Peter Erickson, a senior scientist at the Stockholm Environment Institute in Seattle, Washington.  | Common Dreams

War Zone In #Ferguson: How Billions In Military Weapons Ended Up In The Hands Of Local Police

The highly militarized police response to the protests in Ferguson has been widely observed — and widely criticized. Writing for Business Insider, former Marine Paul Szoldra catalogued the military weaponry on display in Ferguson, then observed that “this is not a war zone […]. This is a city outside of St. Louis where people on both sides are angry.” Journalist Glenn Greenwald wrote Thursday that the events in Ferguson are “the destructive by-product of several decades of deliberate militarization of American policing.” And soldiers have begun to draw startling comparisons between their own armaments and those of the police.  War Zone

Black Preachers can no longer be silent on social issues adversely affecting Black people. Their life depends on it.

John 10:12-13 (KJV) 12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

________________________________________________

The killing of Mike Brown and the nameless and countless numbers of other young Black men and women are putting a spotlight on Black leadership, especially Black Preachers.

Since the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Black preachers have abandoned social issues, playing it safe with 'Prosperity Preaching' that focuses on the individual and NOT the health of the Black community.

Today, Black preachers fear government more than they fear God and their Lord and Saviour Jesus, The Christ.

The actions of the preachers are written of in the Scriptures, both Bible and  Holy Quran under various titles; Hirelings, Enchanters, Baal Prophets and false prophets.

Today, Black Preachers have to make a decision, the out come will determine weather they will live of die. 

I live two examples, on with the enchanters in the day of Moses (Musa) where the preachers chose life and the other with Elijah where the preachers chose death.

HOW THEY RESPOND TO THE CALL OF THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN on Sunday, Aug. 17th at 11am EST at www.noi.org, WILL DETERMINE WEATHER THEY CHOOSE LIFE OF DEATH.

 First lets look at Elijah and the Baal Prophets and how the preachers of that day chose death:

1 Kings 18: 1-40 (KJV)
18 And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the Lord came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.
And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.
And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the Lord greatly:
For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the Lord, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)
And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts.
So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.
And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah?
And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?
10 As the Lord thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not.
11 And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.
12 And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the Lord shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me: but I thy servant fear the Lord from my youth.
13 Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the Lord, how I hid an hundred men of the Lord's prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water?
14 And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me.
15 And Elijah said, As the Lord of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.
16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.
17 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?
18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.
19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.
20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.
21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:
24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.
27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down.
31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the Lord came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:
32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.
33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.
34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.
35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.
36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
37 Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
38 Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.
40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

Now, let us look at Moses and how the preachers chose life:

Holy Quran 7: 109-137
7:109 The chiefs of Pharaoh’s people said: Surely this is a skilful enchanter!
7:110 He intends to turn you out of your land. What do you advise?
7:111 They said: Put him off and his brother, and send summoners into the cities,
7:112 To bring to thee every skilful enchanter.
7:113 And the enchanters came to Pharaoh, saying: We must surely have a reward if we prevail.
7:114 He said: Yes, and you shall certainly be of those who are near (to me).
7:115 They said: O Moses, wilt thou cast, or shall we (be the first to) cast?
7:116 He said: Cast. So when they cast, they deceived the people’s eyes and overawed them, and they produced a mighty enchantment.
7:117 And We revealed to Moses: Cast thy rod. Then lo! it swallowed up their lies.
7:118 So the truth was established, and that which they did became null.
7:119 There they were vanquished, and they went back abased.
7:120 And the enchanters fell down prostrate —
7:121 They said: We believe in the Lord of the worlds,
7:122 The Lord of Moses and Aaron.
7:123 Pharaoh said: You believe in Him before I give you permission! Surely this is a plot which you have plotted in the city, to turn out of it its people, but you shall know!
7:124 I shall certainly cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, then I shall crucify you all together!
7:125 They said: Surely to our Lord do we return.
7:126 And thou takest revenge on us only because we believed in the messages of our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord, pour out on us patience and cause us to die in submission (to Thee)!
7:127 And the chiefs of Pharaoh’s people said: Wilt thou leave Moses and his people to make mischief in the land and forsake thee and thy gods? He said: We will slay their sons and spare their women, and surely we are dominant over them.
7:128 Moses said to his people: Ask help from Allah and be patient. Surely the land is Allah’s — He gives it for an inheritance to such of His servants as He pleases. And the end is for those who keep their duty.
7:129 They said: We were persecuted before thou camest to us and since thou hast come to us. He said: It may be that your Lord will destroy your enemy and make you rulers in the land, then He will see how you act.
7:130 And certainly We overtook Pharaoh’s people with droughts and diminution of fruits that they might be mindful.
7:131 But when good befell them they said: This is due to us. And when evil afflicted them, they attributed it to the ill-luck of Moses and those with him. Surely their evil fortune is only from Allah, but most of them know not.
7:132 And they said: Whatever sign thou mayest bring to us to charm us therewith — we shall not believe in thee.
7:133 So We sent upon them widespread death, and the locusts and the lice and the frogs and the blood — clear signs. But they behaved haughtily and they were a guilty people.
7:134 And when the plague fell upon them, they said: O Moses, pray for us to thy Lord as He has made promise with thee. If thou remove the plague from us, we will certainly believe in thee and will let the Children of Israel go with thee.
7:135 But when We removed the plague from them till a term which they should attain, lo! they broke (their promise).
7:136 So We exacted retribution from them and drowned them in the sea, because they rejected Our signs and were heedless of them.
7:137 And We made the people who were deemed weak to inherit the eastern lands and the western ones which We had blessed. And the good word of thy Lord was fulfilled in the Children of Israel — because of their patience. And We destroyed what Pharaoh and his people had wrought and what they had built.

Why it would be wise to watch Minister Louis #Farrakhan speak on: "#TheTroubledWorld: What Should We Be Doing?"

B4INREMOTE-aHR0cDovLzEuYnAuYmxvZ3Nwb3QuY29tLy1IcXBZVXhiYUZsRS9VLWZQMUY1RndSSS9BQUFBQUFBQXR3ay84WldCaW9ES3dSTS9zMTYwMC90dHdfYmcyLmpwZw==

Minister Farrakhan, the National Representative of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is scheduled to deliver a message on Sunday, August 17 at Mosque Maryam, the International Headquarters of the Nation of Islam in Chicago, IL. His message will be titled, “The Troubled World: What Should We Be Doing?”

Why should you care what he has to say? A careful study of his 58-year catalogue of messages and works would prove that this man has been consistently warning us, America and the world of what was and is to come. In fact, when things happen I always see people on social media posting, “I wonder what Farrakhan thinks or has to say about this?”

Well, if you live in Chicago, the doors open at 9:30am and the program starts at 10am. The program will also be carried live via webcast @ www.NOI.org/webcast.

I'll be tuned in and live-tweeting along with the globe force known in cyberspace as The #FarrakhanTwitterArmy. I invite you to tune in as well.  | African American News

Reduced fertility and increased cancer risk: Should You Keep Using Your Colgate Total Toothpaste?

Colgate Total toothpaste contains an antibacterial ingredient called triclosan. As we recently reporteda Bloomberg News story raised concerns over the potentially harmful effects of the chemical.

While long-term research in humans is lacking, several studies of the effects of triclosan in mice and rats found adverse health effects at high concentrations, including reduced fertility and increased cancer risk . But it's difficult to say if these results would translate into humans, especially because we've been exposed to triclosan in various products for decades. Recent headlines with phrases like " cancer-causing chemical " or " cancer-linked ingredient " are overhyped and fail to account for this.  - Yahoo Finance

Revealed, what’s REALLY inside your ham sandwich and chicken nuggets - and it’s enough to put you off processed food for life

meat Peter Augustus, from Texas, but now living in Hong Kong, has photographed popular dishes alongside the real, raw part of the animal they come from, 'in a bid to explore the relationship that most Western societies have with the meat that they eat'. He said: 'By doing this, I hope to help he viewer to take into account what the natural form of their food looks like.' While nuggets are chicken feet, a ham sandwich is a pig's trotter and a hot dog is an unappetising-looking piece of intestine. Mr Augustus says project - inspired by his move to Hong Kong - 'is not meant to be repulsive, but to raise awareness' of where popular dishes actually come from.  | Mail Online
