Intro to WND’s ‘After Farah Suffers Stroke…’

WND story by David Kupelian

April 5, 2019

 

The online publication WND has been around a long time founded in 1997. WND’s own press asserts it is the oldest online publication of its kind.

With that said, I’m on the WND email alert list providing timely news articles. This is how I discovered the unfortunate news the WND founder Joseph Farah has suffered a stroke. Below are some brief details posted on WND 3/28/19:

 

Recently, adversity hit hard when our company’s founder and CEO, Joseph Farah, suffered a serious stroke. After spending several days in the hospital undergoing extensive testing and evaluation, he is now home, resting comfortably and recovering.

 

Although no one can say with certainty how long he will be away from WND, what I can say with certainty is that Joseph and his family are extremely appreciative of your prayers, as are all of us at WND.

 

Joseph’s medical crisis, in addition to being a difficult trial for the Farah family, is likewise tough for those of us staffing the news organization he founded and has led for 22 years. I’ve known Joseph Farah for three decades, and for 20 years have worked closely with this pioneering journalist as a colleague, good friend and fellow Christian. I know him as a man of enormous talents, integrity and genuine faith.

 

For me, even more disturbing, the formerly great Washington Post recently published a hit piece against WND mere days after Farah’s stroke was announced. It’s a sad day in the media industry when a media giant rips into another media company whose founder has had a severe medical event.

 

But I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised since WaPo has become one of the chief purveyors of Left-Wing Fake News.

 

David Kupelian writing for WND chastises WaPo and provides reassurances about WND’s intentions to keep providing Conservative news with a Christian and pro-Israel slant.

 

God bless Joseph Farah and God bless WND.

AFTER FARAH SUFFERS STROKE, WASHINGTON POST LAUNCHES MAJOR ATTACK ON WND

America’s 1st online journalism organization responds to attempted takedown by D.C. behemoth

 

By David Kupelian

April 4, 2019

WND

 

Joseph Farah

 

Just five days after WND went public with the news that its founder, editor and CEO, veteran journalist Joseph Farah had suffered a devastating stroke, the Washington Post has published a lengthy article attacking Farah, his wife Elizabeth, and WND, America’s first online journalism organization.

 

The story, sensationally headlined “Inside the spectacular fall of the granddaddy of right-wing conspiracy sites,” cites mostly unnamed former employees and others. The Post also mysteriously managed to get a hold of the contents of WND’s private email server, referencing and picking apart numerous internal emails going as far back as 12 years.

 

So, what does the Washington Post story actually allege?

 

Against a backdrop of ongoing financial struggles at the company, the article rolls out numerous examples of unpaid bills, unhappy authors, supposedly bad judgment, failure to adequately communicate with board members, and “reckless and undisciplined” spending by the company’s founders.

 

Evidently the Post considers it shocking and newsworthy that over its 22-year history, a small, influential though undercapitalized company in a highly competitive business, rocked regularly by seismic changes – the dot-com crash, the Google-Facebook-Amazon disruption of the internet and so on – might experience its share of failures, difficulties and embarrassments.

 

Nowhere in the Post’s article is anything remotely illegal alleged. More to the point, nor does the Post acknowledge the important and highly regarded reporting generated day in and day out, year after year, by WND’s journalists – most of whom, remarkably, have been with WND for virtually all of its two decades of existence.

 

Most interestingly, nowhere in his massive 2,700-word article does Post reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia ever get down to what has actually caused the precipitous drop in annual revenue at WND over the last couple of years, which has led to the company’s current struggles.

 

Irony alert: One of WND’s most critical revenue streams over the past two decades has been its robust e-commerce operation featuring thousands of products: the WND Superstore. But WND’s store revenues have dropped dramatically, just as sales have tanked at countless other retailers both online and brick-and-mortar, from Barnes & Noble to Macy’s, thanks to one company – Amazon – whose founder, CEO and president Jeff Bezos is the owner of the Washington Post, having purchased it in 2013 for $250 million.

 

Seeing as Bezos is the world’s wealthiest human being, the Post fortunately suffers no financial problems like WND and others do.

 

But there’s more: Besides Amazon, other internet mega-monopolies including Google and Facebook have all but destroyed the other major revenue stream for online news: advertising.

“Journalism, sustained by traditional advertising, is dying,” says the respected Washington, D.C.-based Electronic Privacy Information Center, whose written testimony to Congress’s Subcommittee on Digital Commerce & Consumer Protection explained starkly that “the revenue model that sustained journalism is broken.”

 

These developments on the internet – along with the now well-documented progressive-left bias, censorship, skewed search algorithms, demonetizing, shadow-banning, outright banning and multiple other modes of suppressing non-leftwing thought – have severely impacted many independent journalism organizations, including WND.

 

There is so much in the Post’s article that is unfair, misleading and just wrong. But rather than refute every allegation and innuendo in this one-sided, unsympathetic portrayal of a vastly smaller but influential news competitor, maybe it’s fair game – since the Post casts aspersions not just on the actions, but the motivations, of WND co-founders Joseph and Elizabeth Farah – to examine the Post’s own motivations and agenda.

 

The Washington Post was once a great newspaper (I grew up in Washington and the Post was delivered to our door daily), best known for its fabled Watergate coverage, with Woodward and Bernstein inspiring a generation of young people to follow in their journalistic footsteps – including Joseph Farah. Those days are long gone. Critics today refer to the Washington Post as “Jeff Bezos’ vanity paper,” the Amazon founder’s chief lobbying-propaganda arm in the nation’s capital.

 

For the past two-plus years, the Post has been in the forefront of the fake news coverage of the phony Trump-Russia-collusion hoax. Let’s be clear: Month after month after month, the Washington Post feverishly promoted the worst hoax in American history.

 

Even before Trump’s election and the Russia hysteria, the Post frequently compared the New York businessman to Adolf Hitler. That’s right. As this writer documented in 2016, during that historic year the Washington Post’s election coverage included no fewer than five different Post writers explicitly comparing Trump to the Nazi monster who murdered 11 million people.

 

Enough said. As Tucker Carlson puts it, “The Washington Post is not a serious newspaper. It’s a joke.”

 

Although Joseph Farah is the only person situated to respond to many of the Post’s allegations, the paper chose to publish its takedown article right after Farah suffered a major stroke rendering him totally unable to defend himself, his wife and his news organization.

 

I don’t know why the Post chose to do such a thing. But I’ll close by simply saying for the record, as WND’s vice president and managing editor for 20 years, that I have nothing but the highest respect and love for this amazing news organization, for its founders Joseph and Elizabeth Farah, and for the dedicated journalists who work here.

 

Finally, regarding that Post headline gloating over “the spectacular fall” of WND: To paraphrase Mark Twain, “Reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated.” WND is still here. And we’re committed to doing what we’ve been doing since before Amazon, Google, Facebook and others even existed – to boldly report without fear or favor on all the corruption, lies, fraud, abuse, attacks on the Constitution, and outright delusions that increasingly dominate our great country. As the 2020 election nears, count on us to focus on underreported but life-and-death issues like voter fraud in all its forms, the left’s disastrous and flat-out insane agenda, Big Tech’s intended election rigging and much more – oh yes, and exposing fake news.

SMOKING GUN MEMO LAID OUT LEFT’S ASSAULT ON CONSERVATIVES


On 8/29/18 I cross posted Joseph Farah’s email alert “The shocking Soros ‘speech code cartel’ memo”. Farah exposed a Leftist agenda under the support of George Soros a memo authored by David Brock with a game plan to undermine President Trump squelch Conservative voices online: “Full David Brock Confidential Memo On Fighting Trump”.

 

Matthew Vadum does more than talk about it. Vadum adds some detail on FrontPageMag.com.

SMOKING GUN MEMO LAID OUT LEFT’S ASSAULT ON CONSERVATIVES

While President Trump was being inaugurated, the Soros-funded Left was busy agitating.

 

By Matthew Vadum

August 30, 2018

FrontPage Magazine

 

George Soros

 

[To learn more about the Freedom Center’s recent victory over the Left’s censorship attempt, and its call for a coalition across party and ideological lines to defend free speech, click here.]

 

A strategy memo compiled by George Soros-funded activist groups as President Trump was being inaugurated last year foretold and seemed to lay the groundwork for many of the political difficulties Trump now faces and the politics-related strife now roiling the nation.

 

The memo takes on a heightened importance as the politically-driven censorship of conservatives by the gigantic, unregulated social media corporations controlled by the Left is moving into high gear while the crucial midterm congressional elections of Nov. 6 approach.

 

The intensely anti-conservative animus in the memo may have inspired MasterCard and WorldPay’s attempt on Aug. 21 to strangle the fundraising efforts of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, publisher of FrontPage, by refusing to complete its financial transactions. On that day MasterCard informed the Freedom Center that it would no longer process its transactions because it had been labeled a “hate group” by the radical leftist groups known as the Southern Poverty Law Center and ColorOfChange.org. The Freedom Center stood falsely accused of being “hateful in nature” and “advocating for violence.”

 

Only a massive outcry by conservative groups and prominent conservatives like Rush Limbaugh forced MasterCard to back down days later and restore the Freedom Center’s online fundraising facilities. But other conservative websites haven’t been so lucky. Many have been shut down or seen their traffic slashed as leftists have manipulated algorithms and limited the reach of conservative content.

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center has since called for a coalition to be created across partisan and ideological lines to defend free speech.

 

The memo itself, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” marked an escalation in tactics by the Left. It was first made public last year by Joe Schoffstall of the Washington Free Beacon around the time Donald Trump took the oath of office to become the nation’s 45th president. This smoking-gun planning document aimed at suppressing conservative voices on social media was ignored by the mainstream media at the time and in the more than a year-and-a-half since.

 

The document spelled out the Left’s plans for impeaching President Trump, filing lawsuits against the fledgling administration, and using social media to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and hurt Republicans. “Right now, our institutions are among the critical few that stand between the America we love and the abyss,” the memo stated. “We must protect and defend our democratic values. We will not back down. We will only move forward.”

 

WND founder Joseph Farah referred last week to the 49-page memo as a blueprint “revealing how George Soros operatives, including David Brock, were there at the genesis, the planning stages, with their hands on the ignition key, of the most concerted, well-funded, diabolical attack on free speech in the history of America.”

 

The document “was nothing short of a plan to turn Google, Facebook and other social media into hyper-partisan Democratic Party activists, promoters, cheerleaders, and off-the-books donors in an effort to turn the country into a one-party state.”

 

The memo outlined left-wing activist David Brock’s four-year plan to undermine the Trump administration and Republicans using Media Matters for America (MMfA), American Bridge 21st Century, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and left-wing propaganda website Shareblue. All four organizations were either founded by Brock or are now controlled by him. Since 2008, leftist billionaire George Soros has given more than $1.5 million to MMfA and more than $1.1 million to CREW through his philanthropies.

 

Brock, who reportedly raised $65 million during the 2016 election cycle, began working on his plan more or less immediately after Republican Donald Trump unexpectedly trounced Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election in November 2016.

 

Brock and his comrades met in Palm Beach, Fla., as Trump assumed the presidency and Trump-hating Antifa rioted in the streets of the nation’s capital. “What better way to spend inaugural weekend than talking about how to kick Donald Trump’s ass?” Brock said in an email to left-wing mega-donors including Soros and Tom Steyer.

 

Whether Brock can take responsibility for all the leftist-inspired turmoil in the country is debatable, but many of the goals identified in the memo have already come to pass.

 

According to the memo, MMfA “will continue its core mission of disarming right-wing information.” This is what “success will look like,” the document states:

 

Serial misinformers and right-wing propagandists inhabiting everything from social media to the highest levels of government will be exposed, discredited.

Internet and social media platforms, like Google and Facebook, will no longer uncritically and without consequence host and enrich fake news sites and propagandists.

 

Toxic alt-right social media-fueled harassment campaigns that silence dissent and poison our national discourse will be punished and halted.

 

CREW will become “the leading nonpartisan ethics watchdog group in a period of crisis with a president and administration that present possible conflicts of interest and ethical problems on an unprecedented scale,” the memo states.

 

CREW “will demand ethical conduct from the administration and all parts of government, expose improper influence from powerful interests, and ensure accountability when the administration and others shirk ethical standards, rules, and laws.”

 

Success will take this form, according to the document:

 

Trump will be afflicted by a steady flow of damaging information, new revelations, and an inability to avoid conflicts issues.

 

The Trump administration will be forced to defend illegal conduct in court.

 

Powerful industries and interest groups will see their influence wane.

 

Dark money will be a political liability in key states.

 

The Shareblue website “will take back social media for Democrats,” the memo states. The group will “delegitimize Donald Trump’s presidency by emboldening the opposition and empowering the majority of Americans who oppose him.”

 

Success will be achieved when the following happens:

 

Shareblue will become the de facto news outlet for opposition leaders and the grassroots.

 

Trump allies will be forced to step down or change course due to news pushed by Shareblue.

 

Under pressure from Shareblue, Democrats will take more aggressive positions against Trump.

 

Shareblue will achieve financial sustainability while diversifying content offerings and platforms.

 

Top editorial and writing talent will leave competitors to join Shareblue.

 

Meanwhile, President Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday that social media giants Google, Twitter, and Facebook “better be careful” because they “are treading on very, very troubled territory” by favoring left-wing viewpoints.

 

Earlier that day he tweeted, “This is a very serious situation—will be addressed!”

 

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,” he wrote. “Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal.”

 

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has indicated he will not testify at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Sept. 5. on social media and Russian meddling in American elections. Unlike Pichai, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg are expected to testify.

 

Whether Dorsey and Sandberg will tell the truth is an open question.

The shocking Soros ‘speech code cartel’ memo


I am revisiting Social Media censorship largely due to the suspicion all those private and public agents are doing their utmost to restrict Conservatives from exposing the nefarious agenda of censorship.

 

A Joseph Farah/WND combined news/fundraising alert delivers links that expose George Soros is working with – get this – the “Google-Facebook-YouTube-Twitter-Amazon-Apple cabal” to censor and attack funding methods of Conservatives.

 

There are many Conservatives and Conservative-oriented organizations worthy of your financial support due to this Social Media cabal. At this moment consider contributing to WND via the various paths this cross posted alert provides.

The shocking Soros ‘speech code cartel’ memo

Exposing ‘the most diabolical attack on free speech in the history of America’

You can’t make this stuff up.

Never, even in my fertile imagination, would I have guessed that we would find a smoking-gun 49-page memo revealing how George Soros operatives, including David Brock, were there at the genesis, the planning stages, with their hands on the ignition key, of the most concerted, well-funded, diabolical attack on free speech in the history of America.

But there it is.

Millions saw it on the DrudgeReport – including, no doubt, President Trump, Vice President Pence and Republican congressional leaders. But most Americans still know nothing of its existence – because it was not reported among the Big Media. They don’t want you to know about it. They would be embarrassed if America found out how they have been used and manipulated – from their focus on “Russian collusion” to other wild conspiracy theories targeting their No. 1 villain, President Trump.

 

It was nothing short of a plan to turn Google, Facebook and other social media into hyper-partisan Democratic Party activists, promoters, cheerleaders, and off-the-books donors in an effort to turn the country into a one-party state.

And they’re getting away with it, even though the beans have been spilled publicly. That’s partly because, as I have pointed out before, Google-Facebook control the media. They use the media. They manipulate the media. They choose winners and losers among the media. That’s real power that we have never seen before in American life.

The timing of this insidious plot is key. When did it begin? Right after Trump was inaugurated. That’s when the attacks on the independent, alternative media — WND, Breitbart, et al. — began. We’ve been feeling the squeeze ever since — through politically skewed algorithms and speech codes.

The Google-Facebook-YouTube-Twitter-Amazon-Apple cabal is trying to ensure that we never have a free and fair election again in America. The “Russia-collusion” hoax is meant to take your eye off the real collusion by un-American, anti-free speech radical political activists.

Do you get it now?

Do you understand what I have been warning about furiously since January of this year?

Read the whole memo, if you have the stomach for it.

These people are crazed, shameless and hell-bent on fundamentally transforming America from a free and open society to one that is dominated by mega-corporations who want to control everything – mostly you and how you think and behave.

Now, what do we do about it?

 

  • Recognize the battle the Trump administration finds itself in. This plot was designed to stop him. It’s as close to a coup attempt as anything devised by the Deep State rear guard. So, they devised a scheme to attack those in the independent, alternative media that helped get him elected by countering their lies. They determined to do that by killing the messengers – and they are very close to accomplishing that objective.

 

  • Pray that the president, the vice president and Republican congressional leaders challenge the “Speech Code Cartel” while they still can or else America will find itself in a cultural and political endgame, on the verge of tyranny.

 

  • Support those being hurt most right now, those fighting for survival, in the independent, alternative media with your prayers and financial support. Their traffic and revenues have been stolen from them by the powerful leftist social media cabal and their speech-code cops in the Southern Poverty Law Center.

 

Once again, here’s how you can help us win this life-and-death battle:

1. Support WND, the original pioneer in independent news 21 years ago, all through August by helping us raise $100,000 as we battle the cartel for survival in our roughest month yet. We’re hunkered down and many are working without pay. I’ve subsidized WND with all the money I have, and there is no more left. We thank you for getting us 50 percent of the way to our total so far – but it’s not what we had hoped for with just a few days remaining. Please pray for us and shower us with your most generous donations to keep us alive and fighting for truth.

Many of you have suggested you prefer to make your contributions by check. You can always do that by sending them to WND, 14501 George Carter Way, Suite 102, Chantilly, VA 20151.

2. You can also support WND’s groundbreaking new book, “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” with your tax-deductible contributions in any amount to the fabulous missions organization, Gospel for All Nations, which has adopted the project to help spread the truth of the Good News around the world. This book, coming out in hardcover next month, is an important part of WND’s recovery, rebirth and revitalization plan for later this year. Your help with book-printing and marketing expenses will help immensely to weather this storm – not to mention help us distribute this compelling and redemptive “breakthrough Bible book.

If you prefer to write tax-deductible checks for this purpose, you can do so by sending them to “Gospel Book,” Gospel for All Nations, 580 E Street — PO Box 100 — Hawthorne, NV 89415-0100.

Thank you and bless you for your support.

Banning Alex Jones?


Justified Only If…

 

John R. Houk

© August 8, 2018

 

Alex Jones is literally being censored on every digital media format I can think of.

 

I have to be clear. I am not a supporter or big fan of Mr. Jones. Many of his Conspiracy Theories propagated from his soapbox are just plain outlandish and crazy.

 

The massive digital censorship Jones is accused of is hate-speech. Frankly, as outlandish and offensive Jones can be I am not surprised the hate-speech accusations are levelled against him.

 

I do have a couple of problems with the censorship.

 

ONE: The same media platforms censoring Jones allow Muslims to spew Jew-Hatred and promote physical harm to Jews and other non-Muslims. However, when a non-Muslim points out Islamic tenets and Muslim history demonstrate violent hatred for all things non-Muslim specifying Jews, Christians and polytheists. Militant homosexuals overtly express hatred toward Biblical Values Christians yet will censor Biblical Values Christians for supporting the Bible’s labelling the homosexual practice a sin against God’s Word. In essence this is censorship hypocrisy.

 

TWO: The same media platforms rarely if ever censor Left-Wing calls for violence against Conservatives yet they will censor Conservatives refuting a violent Leftist agenda. For example Maxine Walters advocating Leftists to disrupt reputed Conservative meetings and Conservatives living their private lives at open-to-the-public venues. Astonishingly to date, Conservative individuals have refused to respond with self-defense violence for Leftist provocation. I’m a disabled dude and I don’t know if I would exhibit such self-restraint to respond with action if someone shouting directly in front of my face.

 

I hate defending Alex Jones because I am convinced he has used actual hate-speech; however look at some of phrases the digital media platforms label as hate-speech worthy of censorship via banning:

 

The resident Jew, Leftist Jews, Jewish Mafia (Alex Jones Accused Of Anti-Semitism, Sexual Harassment; By Aiden Pink; Forward.com; 3/1/18)

 

The same article on Forward.com also illustrates actual forms of hate-speech via sexual harassment which is unacceptable but demonstrated on Alex Jones programs.

 

I don’t know what Alex Jones other than the vague accusation of the kind of speech the digital platforms call hatred or inciting violence:

 

“… the stated reason for the ban on his content is not defamation but “hate speech” against Muslims, transgender people, and other groups.” (Booting Alex Jones from social media wasn’t wrong, but it could be dangerous; By Cathy Young; USA Today; 8/8/18 9:03 a.m. ET)

 

If the hate-speech was critical of a belief system corresponding to Islam or the LGBTQ agenda, then said hate-speech violation is an absurd accusation. If Jones said something dimwitted such as maybe, “hunt down the camel jockeys and give them a tasted of their own medicine” or “rope the fudge-packer and drag the shem down the road”. Those kinds of phrases are indeed inciting violence and is a good reason for censuring and/or banning.

 

Here is the Joseph Farah email (which is also a bit of a fundraiser) that inspired my thoughts.

First, they came for Alex Jones …

The pretense and subtlety are over, ‘Digital Cartel’ now overtly attacking ‘offensive’ voices

 

By Joseph Farah

Sent 8/8/2018 4:01 AM

Sent from WND

 

I’ve been warning everyone who would listen about the greatest threat to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion in America today.

It’s not government.

Instead, the overt attack on America’s First Amendment comes from the corporate behemoth internet gatekeepers who are in ideological lockstep with each other – from Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Apple to Amazon.

This week, YouTube and Facebook followed Apple’s lead in banishing Alex Jones, the iconic, high-energy voice that rails against globalism and the Deep State daily on radio, podcasts and his own Infowars TV show. He was an easy target and a predictable one – a controversial figure, without doubt, and a high-profile one with a sizable following.

Not everyone wants to defend Alex Jones – certainly not everything he says.

Yet, the First Amendment wasn’t crafted by America’s founding geniuses to protect tepid, non-controversial speech. It was crafted to protect just this kind of fiery dialogue – the kind that offends some people, some sensibilities. Alex Jones is a good choice to start the censorship juggernaut rolling if you think like the Southern Poverty Law Center. And one thing Apple, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon all have in common is their love of, reverence for, and partnerships with this extremist band of smear merchants who never met anyone right of center that they didn’t label a “hater,” a “fascist,” a “Nazi” or a “racist” – including, of course, the current president of the United States.

So, first the Digital Cartel came for Alex Jones.

Who will be next? I don’t know, but I don’t plan to find myself in the position in which Martin Niemöller found himself in Nazi Germany. He’s most famous for this prescient quotation: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

I’m going to defend Alex Jones’ right to say what he wants – even if I sometimes, or even often, find myself in disagreement with him. And I’m going to condemn this cabal of bloated mega-corporations imposing their ideology on America’s most vital public square – the digital media.

Maybe you say, “Well, Farah, don’t these corporations have the absolute right to approve and disapprove of the viewpoints they carry – just like you do?” The answer may be surprising: No, they don’t. None of these conglomerates are publishers, content producers, part of the “press.” They are more akin to “utilities” – like the telephone companies of old, or the electricity producers who have a public obligation to be fair and neutral in offering the services they provide to all, without regard to race, religion and ideology. They don’t have to like Alex Jones. They don’t have to listen to Alex Jones. But if they are going to hold these privileged positions of making lots of money by distributing all manner of content, data and information to the public, they dare not think of themselves as ideological gatekeepers against “offensive” political speech. And they better not designate the disgraced partisan hacks of the SPLC as their content cops, which is precisely what they have done – all of them!

I know I sound like a broken record on this theme, but I’m going to keep pounding on it until the public catches on to the threat these trillion-dollar monopolies pose to America’s precious institutions of free speech, the free press and freedom of religion. We need congressional hearings. We need action in Washington. We need President Trump to recognize who the biggest purveyors of fake news really are. It’s not just CNN and the Huffington Post. It’s their distribution arms – Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Amazon – the Digital Cartel.

It’s time to throw down the gauntlet, draw a marker in the sand, file class-action lawsuits, summon our leaders to action.

Are we going to let this cabal render the First Amendment null and void?

I’ve been telling you how they have attacked WND relentlessly and ruthlessly through its politically and religiously discriminatory algorithms. I’ve told you how they have been coming after the independent media, especially since the 2016 election that so disappointed all of them.

Do you really want to talk about supposed Russian interference in our free society when this powerful monolithic cartel is setting the rules of debate for Americans out in plain sight – openly censoring voices they don’t like while systematically elevating those they do like? What a sick joke!

As for me, I will defend the voices of dissent, and even controversy, as long as I have a soapbox upon which to stand. I know they are coming after me and the world’s first independent online news company, which I founded 21 years ago. Once again, I ask you to stand with me, or else find yourself living in a country you won’t long recognize. No privacy. No freedom.

Please support us, or risk finding yourself living in a very different and scary version of America soon.

Help us to raise a much-needed additional $100,000 through August – our biggest crisis period yet, as we battle for survival against the cartel. We’re already nearly 20 percent of the way there, thanks to many of you. You may not be able to give $1,000 or even $100. But everyone who understands the stakes can contribute $10 or even $3.

 

You can also support WND’s groundbreaking new book, “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” with your tax-deductible contributions in any amount to the fabulous missions organization, Gospel for All Nations, which has adopted the project to help spread the truth of the Good News around the world. This book, coming out in hardcover in September, is an important part of WND’s recovery, rebirth and revitalization plan for later this year. Your help with book-printing and marketing expenses will help immensely to weather this storm – not to mention help us distribute this compelling and redemptive “breakthrough Bible book.”

Dem Propaganda & Deep State Coup?


John R. Houk

© March 6, 2017

 

The Dems have tried to frame President Trump with getting the Russians to fix the November elections to Trump’s favor. Indeed, traitor former President Obama has been exposed with his own self trying to sway the election with the Russian Fake News story combined with some Watergate style campaign spying in the name of National Security.

 

FINALLY! President Trump is pushing back! Our President is letting the cat out of the bag and the Dems are trying to obfuscate the push back with typical denials in their defense of treasonous Obama.

 

Here is some more Obama/Dem Deep State documentation of the travesty of pulling a legal coup against President Trump. I have to wonder. WHEN the legal coup fails, will the Obama/Dems begin a violent coup as evidenced in the streets with violence against Pro-Trumpers? Can you say Loretta Lynch?

SPYGATE: Mark Levin Provides The Timeline And Proof Of The Obama Administration Using Police Tactics Against Trump [VIDEO]

 

By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

March 5, 2017 

Noisy Room

 

Obama Spying

 

Mark Levin is on a tear and it is a wonder to behold. I just watched him provide solid proof on Fox News on how all these police tactics against President Trump did indeed occur. The media provided most of the proof themselves that the two FISA requests were sought by Obama… the first one in June of last year, which mentioned Trump directly and was denied, and a second that occurred in October last year and was narrowed in scope, then was approved. It looks like it may have been targeting a server in the White House that was emailing Russian banks supposedly. No wrongdoing was found, unless of course you count what Obama did.

 

Levin has laid out exactly how this should be investigated and he has the full attention of the White House. His findings and recommendations have been circulated to several White House staffers, according to Washington Post reporter Robert Costa. The FISA orders and transcripts should now be made public and hearings should begin over all this. The media is still insisting there is no proof, when they provided said proof. This is insane.

 

From Conservative Review:

 

Mark Levin, Conservative Review’s editor-in-chief, recommends the Trump administration open an investigation into Barack Obama. Levin states the former president’s team used police-state tactics against then-candidate Trump during the 2016 election.

 

“The gravity of this is unparalleled. It appears that during the course of a presidential election, the Obama administration used both intelligence and law enforcement agencies to investigate the Republican nominee’s campaign and certain surrogates,” Levin tells Conservative Review.

 

Levin – who served as chief of staff for President Reagan’s Attorney General Ed Meese – explained the potential scandal on his Thursday evening radio show:

 

“We have a prior administration – Barack Obama and his surrogates – who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the … intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public.

 

“The question is: Was Obama surveilling top Trump campaign officials during the election?” Levin asked on “The Mark Levin Show.”

 

Mark Levin is calling this a silent coup. And he is correct. I’ve looked right at this evidence for months and I never connected the dots. I’m so glad Levin did. It is obvious to me that Barack Obama did know about all this and had Lynch at the DOJ once again do his dirty work. There was and is an orchestrated plan to sabotage the Trump presidency and not only stop him from getting his appointees approved, but stop him from accomplishing anything of merit or that would hurt the Obama legacy.

 

A myriad of things now look very connected. The protests and riots, Valerie Jarrett moving into Obama’s mansion, Jarrett’s daughter being hired by CNN to cover the DOJ and Jeff Sessions when she’s not even a journalist, the attack on Jeff Sessions himself, and on and on and on. When do we wake up and realize we are at war within? And that Obama and his activists must be stopped and held accountable. You’ve got Loretta Lynch literally calling for blood and death in our streets: …They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again– Loretta Lynch, February 28 2017 This is who we are fighting and we must now see this through and show the left that we will not stand for police state tactics against Americans like this and especially against an elected President.

WAS OBAMA’S TAP OF TRUMP LEGAL, AMERICAN?

Exclusive: Joseph Farah reveals why scandal is ‘bigger and worse than Watergate’

 

By JOSEPH FARAH

March 5, 2017

WND

 

After Donald Trump blew the whistle on the eavesdropping of his 2016 campaign headquarters by Barack Obama’s administration, few in the media or elsewhere seem to be asking the obvious questions:

Was it legal?

 

Was it ethical – in the American way?

 

One thing is for certain: If the roles were reversed and the Trump administration bugged Democrats, you can imagine the media would take a much different view.

 

Let’s first take a look at how the media reported this travesty of justice, political decorum, the Constitution and American legal tradition:

 

  • Washington Post: President Trump on Saturday angrily accused former President Barack Obama of orchestrating a “Nixon/Watergate” plot to tap the phones at his Trump Tower headquarters in the run-up to last fall’s election, providing no evidence to support his explosive claim and drawing a flat denial from Obama’s office.

 

  • CNN: Trump’s baseless wiretap claim

 

  • Atlantic: Trump’s Unfounded Claims of a “Nixon/Watergate” Wiretapping Scheme

 

  • Huffington Post: Obama Refutes Allegation that He Wiretapped Trump Tower During Campaign

 

  • New York Daily News: Trump’s poor understanding of national security investigations may prove dangerous

 

  • New York Times: President Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama of tapping his phones at Trump Tower the month before the election, leveling the explosive allegation without offering any evidence.

 

The emphasis of all of these “fake news” reports is disingenuous to say the least. Obama didn’t deny his administration wiretapped Trump. He said no one at the White House did. That is a virtual admission that his administration did, probably Justice Department, meaning the “apolitical Loretta Lynch” who just called for “blood and death” in the streets to stop Trump, much to the approval of Senate Democrats. It’s an obvious parsing of words by the slick Obama.

 

The accusation is indeed bigger than Watergate, which began with an attempt not to eavesdrop directly on Richard Nixon’s opponent in the 1972 presidential election, but on Larry O’Brian, the head of the DNC, whose offices were in the Watergate Hotel. He was the Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of his day, but she and Hillary Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta didn’t bother securing their email communications, and you could read them all on WikiLeaks.

 

And that brings us to the excuse for Trump’s campaign being undoubtedly bugged – the elusive evidence for Russian hacking and interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

 

If you doubt there is no evidence, just carefully read every New York Times story on the fake scandal. Way down near the bottom of every story, the paper that has trumpeted this story the most admits there’s no evidence.

 

So, here’s the way this thing obviously went down.

 

Obama’s team first tried to get a broad FISA warrant to investigate the Russian fantasy. The judge turned it down.

 

It tried again with a narrower FISA warrant request. The judge turned it down.

 

Then it tried a third time, and the judge approved it in October. Coincidentally, that is the exact time Trump says the wiretapping began.

 

Not one of these big news organizations will tell you that.

 

It’s the attorney general who would request such wiretap authorizations for heavy-duty, politically charged requests such as this – not that any have ever been requested or authorized in the history of the republic.

 

Do news organizations really want to be covering up stuff like this? Don’t they understand the same tactics can be used against them? Obama, or (wink-wink) Lynch, just set the precedent.

 

Nixon never did anything remotely like this – and he was forced from office as a result. Obama or Lynch could well be prosecuted by the Trump administration. And one or both probably should be.

 

Misuse of FISA statutes is a clear violation of the law.

 

FISA can only be used for “foreign intelligence information” as the basis for surveillance to protect the U.S. against a “grave” or “hostile” attack, war-like sabotage or international terror.

 

Does anyone suggest such a thing with regard to Russian hacks?

 

That’s what makes this scandal, pardon the expression, “bigger than Watergate.”

 

Out of more than 35,000 FISA court requests, only 12 have ever been rejected. But two out of three requested by the Obama administration to investigate the Russia deal were. What does that tell you?

 

It tells me this was a political fishing expedition to build a case against Trump if or when he beat Hillary.

 

Since the election, the hysteria over Russia’s role in the election has only increased exponentially.

 

And that’s why:

 

1. I believe Trump.

2. I don’t believe Obama.

3. I don’t believe the “fake news cartel,” which is all in for finding the elusive Trump-Russia link.

 

What we’ve got here at first glance is a prima facie case for “bigger and worse than Watergate.”

 

But the Washington Post and New York Times have already signaled they won’t be investigating. They are already publishing front-page editorials that stake out a rather shrill “see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, speak-no-evil” approach.

 

Was it legal? No.

 

Was it ethical in the American political tradition? No.

 

Is it one of the most dangerous developments in American political history? Yes.

The Obama Camp’s Disingenuous Denials on FISA Surveillance of Trump 

 

By ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

Originally NATIONAL REVIEW

March 5, 2017

Israpundit

Posted by Ted Belman

 

President Trump’s early Saturday morning tweeting has exploded to the forefront an uncovered scandal I’ve been talking about since early January (including in this weekend’s column): The fact that the Obama Justice Department and the FBI investigated associates of Donald Trump, and likely Trump himself, in the heat of the presidential campaign.

 

To summarize, reporting indicates that, prior to June 2016, the Obama Justice Department and FBI considered a criminal investigation of Trump associates, and perhaps Trump himself, based on concerns about connections to Russian financial institutions. Preliminary poking around indicated that there was nothing criminal involved. Rather than shut the case down, though, the Obama Justice Department converted it into a national-security investigation under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). FISA allows the government, if it gets court permission, to conduct electronic surveillance (which could include wiretapping, monitoring of e-mail, and the like) against those it alleges are “agents of a foreign power.”
FISA applications and the evidence garnered from them are classified – i.e., we would not know about any of this unless someone had leaked classified information to the media, a felony. In June, the Obama Justice Department submitted an application that apparently “named” Trump in addition to some of his associates.

 

As I have stressed, it is unclear whether “named” in this context indicates that Trump himself was cited as a person the Justice Department was alleging was a Russian agent whom it wanted to surveil. It could instead mean that Trump’s name was merely mentioned in an application that sought to conduct surveillance on other alleged Russian agents. President Trump’s tweets on Saturday claimed that “President Obama . . . tapp[ed] my phones[,]” which makes it more likely that Trump was targeted for surveillance, rather than merely mentioned in the application.

 

In any event, the FISA court reportedly turned down the Obama Justice Department’s request, which is notable: The FISA court is notoriously solicitous of government requests to conduct national-security surveillance (although, as I’ve noted over the years, the claim by many that it is a rubber-stamp is overblown).

 

Not taking no for an answer, the Obama Justice Department evidently returned to the FISA court in October 2016, the critical final weeks of the presidential campaign. This time, the Justice Department submitted a narrowly tailored application that did not mention Trump. The court apparently granted it, authorizing surveillance of some Trump associates.

 

It is unknown whether that surveillance is still underway, but the New York Times has identified – again, based on illegal leaks of classified information – at least three of its targets: Paul Manafort (the former Trump campaign chairman who was ousted in August), and two others whose connection to the Trump campaign was loose at best, Manafort’s former political-consulting business partner Roger Stone, and investor Carter Page.

 

The Times report (from mid-January) includes a lot of heavy breathing about potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia; but it ultimately concedes that the government’s FISA investigation may have nothing to do with Trump, the campaign, or alleged Russian efforts to interfere in the U.S. election by hacking e-mail accounts. Trump’s tweets on Saturday prompted some interesting “denials” from the Obama camp. These can be summarized in the statement put out by Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis:

 

A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.

 

This seems disingenuous on several levels. First, as Obama officials well know, under the FISA process, it is technically the FISA court that “orders” surveillance. And by statute, it is the Justice Department, not the White House, that represents the government in proceedings before the FISA court. So, the issue is not whether Obama or some member of his White House staff “ordered” surveillance of Trump and his associates.

 

The issues are (a) whether the Obama Justice Department sought such surveillance authorization from the FISA court, and (b) whether, if the Justice Department did that, the White House was aware of or complicit in the decision to do so. Personally, given the explosive and controversial nature of the surveillance request we are talking about – an application to wiretap the presidential candidate of the opposition party, and some of his associates, during the heat of the presidential campaign, based on the allegation that the candidate and his associates were acting as Russian agents – it seems to me that there is less than zero chance that could have happened without consultation between the Justice Department and the White House. [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

Second, the business about never ordering surveillance against American citizens is nonsense. Obama had American citizens killed in drone operations. Obviously, that was not done in the U.S. or through the FISA process; it was done overseas, under the president’s commander-in-chief and statutory authority during wartime.

 

But the notion that Obama would never have an American subject to surveillance is absurd. Third, that brings us to a related point: FISA national-security investigations are not like criminal investigations. They are more like covert intelligence operations – which presidents personally sign off on. [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

The intention is not to build a criminal case; it is to gather information about what foreign powers are up, particularly on U.S. soil. One of the points in FISA proceedings’ being classified is that they remain secret – the idea is not to prejudice an American citizen with publication of the fact that he has been subjected to surveillance even though he is not alleged to have engaged in criminal wrongdoing. Consequently, there is nothing wrong, in principle, with a president’s ordering national-security surveillance of a potential foreign agent who may be helping a foreign power threaten American security and interests.

 

That is one of the president’s main jobs – there would be something wrong if a president, who truly believed the nation was threatened by a foreign power, failed to take action. Prior to FISA’s enactment in 1978, courts had no formal role in the surveillance of foreign agents for national-security purposes – it was a unilateral executive-branch function. Beginning with the Carter administration during FISA’s enactment, it has been the position of presidential administrations of both parties that, despite the enactment of the FISA process, the president maintains inherent authority under Article II of the Constitution to order surveillance even in the absence of court authorization. [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

Of course, doing so is controversial, as President Bush learned after he directed the NSA to conduct warrantless wiretapping of suspected terrorists following the 9/11 attacks. Nevertheless, we should not allow the statements of Obama spokesmen to confuse us here. The Justice Department and FBI have two missions: (a) criminal law-enforcement and (b) national security. It would be scandalous (though probably not constitutional unconstitutional) for a president to interfere in the law-enforcement mission by ordering the Justice Department to prosecute someone outside its normal procedures.

 

But it would not be inappropriate  e–ven though civil libertarians would raise holy hell — for the president to direct warrantless surveillance against a target, even an American citizen, if the president truly believed that target was functioning as an agent of a foreign power threatening U.S. interests. To be clear, there does not seem to be any evidence, at least that I know of, to suggest that any surveillance or requests to conduct surveillance against then-candidate Donald Trump was done outside the FISA process.

 

Nevertheless, whether done inside or outside the FISA process, it would be a scandal of Watergate dimension if a presidential administration sought to conduct, or did conduct, national-security surveillance against the presidential candidate of the opposition party. Unless there was some powerful evidence that the candidate was actually acting as an agent of a foreign power, such activity would amount to a pretextual use of national-security power for political purposes. That is the kind of abuse that led to Richard Nixon’s resignation in lieu of impeachment. [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

Moreover, it cannot be glossed over that, at the very time it appears the Obama Justice Department was seeking to surveil Trump and/or his associates on the pretext that they were Russian agents, the Obama Justice Department was also actively undermining and ultimately closing without charges the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton despite significant evidence of felony misconduct that threatened national security. This appears to be extraordinary, politically motivated abuse of presidential power.  [I have updated the post, as indicated, to reflect that I meant “not unconstitutional” in a passage in which I erroneously said “not constitutional.] -[Blog Editor’s bold text]

‘If I were the devil …’


Matt Drudge

Yesterday Joseph Farah posted what was billed as a tribute to Matt Drudge (The Hill tribute 5/7/15). Farah uses Paul Harvey (deceased 2009) as an example of what Matt Drudge represents to this generation of media listeners and watchers. And so in reality the tribute is to the prescience of Paul Harvey’s predictions of a future America. As Farah writes about Harvey in the middle of article entitled “If I Were the Devil …” he brings a video depiction of a Paul Harvey radio broadcast of the same title in 1965.

In Farah’s article I’ll provide the Youtube version of what Farah used of WND video. However, I believe I have found a better visualization of Paul Harvey’s 1965 message that is an eerily accurate prediction of today’s America.

‘If I were the devil …’

 

By JOSEPH FARAH

September 3, 2015

WorldNetDaily

In 1965, I was 11 years old.

I was becoming aware of what was going on in the world.

My favorite news guy was Paul Harvey.

What was special about Paul Harvey, besides his cadence, his story-telling ability, his voice and his likeability, was his news judgment.

He was the Matt Drudge of his day.

I can’t say there came a moment while listening to Paul Harvey that I determined to become a newsman, but I’m sure he was an influence on that decision.

But it was in 1965, with the Vietnam War raging, riots in America’s cities and upheaval on college campuses, that I first remember hearing what became his signature broadcast.

It was called “If I were the devil.”

Paul Harvey first broadcast the “If I Were the Devil” speech in 1965. Through the years, he updated the speech. This version was probably broadcast in the 1990s. This is the same speech from: http://youtu.be/H3Az0okaHig

This version adds in backgrounds to supplement the text. [Blog Editor: The quoted video description is not a part of the original WND article and the-embed is different because the similar to WND version would not allow an-embed.]

I was far from a Christian believer when I was a kid.

That commitment wouldn’t come for about 11 more years, when I was in college.

But that broadcast stuck with me, made an impression; it is still indelibly etched in the synapses of my mind.

It smacked of truth.

Later, when I became a professional newsman, I thought about what made Paul Harvey so special, what gave him the universal appeal. It was clear to me it wasn’t just the voice, the cadence of his speech and the repetition of keywords. It was much more than the style – which was artistic, original, creative and captivating. It was mostly the content – his news judgment.

Paul Harvey made his living sorting out the news for America – giving us a glimpse of what was really important and entertaining. Long before the Internet came along, Paul Harvey was giving us headlines we might not see in our local newspapers or hear on the network TV news.

And all during my many years running daily newspapers, I would often instruct my editors what I expected from them – Paul Harvey-style news judgment.

Paul Harvey passed away in 2009. I wondered who might take his place. Nobody did. I don’t think anyone can.

Yes, he could tell a great story, as in “the rest of the story.” But what I loved most about him was his ability to find those great little gems of news – stories that escaped the attention of so many of his colleagues.

I didn’t really know Paul Harvey, but I felt like I did.

He was a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

Even though we never met, he was gracious to me and frequently acknowledged my work. One of my great thrills in life was hearing him promote my book “Taking America Back” to his massive listening audience as a great Christmas gift in 2003.

“There is a book called ‘Taking America Back’ – might make a real good Christmas present for the uninformed,” he said. “The book is called ‘Taking America Back.'”

Just those brief words gave my book a shot in the arm only he could give. (That’s not quite true. In 2009, the presidency of Barack Obama did even more for the book.)

Experience more of Joseph Farah’s no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore

But it was a total surprise when Paul Harvey made that endorsement. I had no idea it was coming. No one had pitched him. You could have knocked me over with a feather.

I was honored and privileged to be able to add that endorsement in the paperback edition.

I wish I had a chance to meet Paul Harvey before he died. I wish I had an opportunity to shake his hand. I wish I got to tell him how much he meant to me. But I guess saying it late is better than never.

Paul Harvey was a genius. What he brought to America in terms of daily wit and wisdom will be missed by the entire country – whether they know it or not.

Paul Harvey was an original – an icon, a unique personality and talent. He was bigger than life. No one who knew him had a bad word to say about him.

Paul Harvey would have been 97 today.

Good day!

America Needs Prayer – PARTICIPATE


John R. Houk

© July 27, 2015

Joseph Farah of WND sent an email promoting the third annual 9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance. Farah begins with the recent SCOTUS decision that essentially told God Almighty He is in error for condemning any proclivity toward homosexual sex as an abomination. SCOTUS accomplished this usurpation of God’s prerogative as Creator by the unconstitutional activist rewriting of law forcing ALL American States to accept same-sex marriage.

The Supreme Court’s slow but sure whittling away of the moral standards of America by creating law rather than telling Congress to address a legal issue has activated a slow decent into a sewer humanist morality. The decent has been so slow that Americans are like the adage of a frog tossed in a pot of water which doesn’t notice it is slowly being boiled to death.

In truth there is only two ways for moral Americans to reclaim a USA that is exceptional once again: the Founding Fathers’ path of Revolution OR humbling ourselves before Almighty God in prayer and repentance OR both.

Farah’s email provides various links to WND opinion pieces pertaining to the 9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance of which one is to the page promoting the event. Here is a video from that page and the following words leading to participation:

VIDEO: Dave Kubal 911 National Day of Repentance


Our country is in a deep spiral of moral and spiritual descent. As believers, this fact is starkly clear. The Bible declares that such things lead to national judgment. The biblical warning signs of national judgment that appeared in the last days of ancient Israel are now reappearing on American soil (The Harbinger, Jonathan Cahn). The Bible declares that the prayers and repentance of God’s people can help facilitate, repentance, revival, healing, and restoration.

This has resulted in 9/11 Pray – a Day of Prayer and RepentanceThe call for such a day first started September 11, 2013 and was first sounded by Joseph Farah, of World Net Daily and producer of The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment. It to was early affirmed by Jonathan Cahn, Michele Bachmann, Greg Laurie, Chuck Norris, and more and the movement kept spreading.

9/11 Pray: National Day of Prayer and Repentance is appointed for believers across the nation to pray according to the pattern in 2 Chronicles 7:14 ‘If My people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.’

It will be a day for believers to humble themselves, pray, to seek God’s face, and to turn, in repentance, from their sinful ways and having done that, to pray and intercede for America, for God’s mercy and purpose, for revival.

This is being initiated and led by the Spirit of God moving on the hearts of believers and leaders across the nation, and not by any one organization or effort.

It is a call for both individual and corporate prayer and repentance. It is open to all believers. Any individual, any church, any ministry, any Bible study, any leader can join in – with individual prayer, prayer services, gatherings in church, gatherings in one’s region, town or city, media events, fasting, intercession, worship, etc….however the Lord leads. The most important thing is that God’s people come before Him in prayer and repentence (sic) for themselves and America.

How You Can Be Part: Spread the Word, Send, forward, post this, to as many people as possible, let your pastors/congregations/family/neighbors/friends people know Sign up to get further information/posts, the 9/11 Pray How-To Guide, The Declaration and more.

AMERICA: Prayer Can Reverse a Downward Spiral

By Joseph Farah

Sent: 7/21/2015 9:42 AM

Sent by WND

In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to impose homosexual “marriage” on the nation, WND CEO Joseph Farah says it is more important than ever for Americans to repent. And he’s calling for believers in God throughout the country to participate in the third annual “9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance.”

“When America was founded 239 years ago, fellow believers fought to establish and protect the role of God in preserving the fabric of our country. We are a nation originally built on and by prayer. Today, as Christians, we can look around and readily see that our beloved homeland is tragically broken and our culture is disintegrating and dramatically moving away from God,” he said.

But he said the solution is available.

“How can we save America? What would our founders do if faced with such predicaments? Those of us who understand the challenges we face for the very survival of America as one nation under God must start planning now to do something radical,” he said.

“That something is the 2015 nationwide day of prayer and repentance.”

The “9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance” began in 2013 with an editorial column at WND.com calling for “a nationwide day of prayer, fasting and humility” to respond to national challenges rivaling “anything we’ve seen since the start of World War II.”

Though Farah did not anticipate it, pastors, preachers, rabbis, and others around the country responded enthusiastically and what he initially termed a “throwaway” column became a movement.

Thousands of churches and hundreds of thousands of individuals have participated in the “9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance” in previous years. However, this year’s event takes on special significance because of contemporary events in politics and culture.

Jonathan Cahn, the well-known Bible teacher and author who warned years ago of divine judgment if America did not reject secularism, has suggested America is already a “post-Christian” nation and that bathing the White House in the colors of the homosexual “rainbow flag” was “a sign of desecration covering the White House.”

Cahn’s warning to the Supreme Court not to implement homosexual “marriage” and to turn back to God went viral racking up millions of views in only a few days.

 

Elizabeth Farah

Joseph Farah and his wife Elizabeth trace the beginnings of the “9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance” to their efforts producing the most successful faith movie of 2012-2013, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” based on Cahn’s New York Times best-selling book, “The Harbinger.”

Farah says “the movie has had a profound impact on millions with its biblically based revelations of how God’s judgment is befalling our land as it did ancient Israel” and Cahn has affirmed the “9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance.”

Cahn’s work shows how the Israelites responded to catastrophe with pride and defiance, rather than prayer. In his interpretation, this led to catastrophe for the Jewish people.

Seeing contemporary Americans in a similar situation, Farah believes, “If there is one word that could instantaneously reverse the critical state that our nation is in today, it is this – repentance.”

In his view, the “9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance” is an effort to urge the entire nation to repent and avoid destruction.

Other leaders are also stepping forward to encourage Christians to participate in the effort, including Michele Bachmann and Chuck Norris.

Also Richard Land, president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, who has promoted the event:


Ken Ham, president and founder of Answers in Genesis, is another supporter.

Farah said of the event, “September 11 will be a day for believers to humble themselves, pray, fast, seek God’s face, and personally repent of sin. Having done that, it is also a day to pray and intercede for God’s mercy upon America. The Spirit of God is moving in the hearts of believers all across this nation to initiate this event, and the 9/11 Day of Prayer & Repentance is being promoted and carried out by a variety of organizations and leadership efforts.”

Farah encourages pastors to open their churches on Wednesday, Sept. 11, to allow both their community of members and their communities at large to gather and pray.

Individuals can also participate in the effort in several ways, according to organizers:

· Pledge to pray as an individual or a group and to receive FREE devotionals and other resources at 911dayofprayer.org. The website has more information on how to participate, the resources available and how to stay in touch for updates. Sign up today.

· Pass the word, (send, forward, and post this), to as many people and groups as possible. Learn more at 911DayofPrayer.org and let your pastors, congregations, and friends know about this event and put it on the calendar.

· Plan to participate either as a group locally, on the national conference call or other event you create in concert with the day.

· Most importantly, prepare to repent by praying in advance of the day & be led by the Lord as to how you can participate.

Farah points to 2 Chronicles 7:14, which reads, “… if My people, who are called by name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (NKJV)

Farah condemns the response of the contemporary culture to America’s challenges.

“The people of America are responding predictably to today’s culture by doing what’s ‘right in their own eyes’ – as the people of Israel did before their judgment. No longer does Washington see itself as a servant of the people, but rather as their master. Man’s conventional answers are not going to work. God will not be silently mocked by blatant disregard.

“As followers of Christ, we are at a crossroads. The number of Americans with godly values appears to be rapidly declining, and it is imperative for the church to turn away from culture and turn to Scripture to find answers. Second Chronicles tells us that God desires to heal our land. Our part is clear – to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and turn from our evil ways.”

Thank you and God’s blessings!

Get Rid of the Trojan Horse


Muslim Trojan Horse 3

John R. Houk

© June 30, 2014

 

I read an editorial by Joseph Farah in which the title says everything, “2-State Solution is Dead”. Of course the title is due to the Arab-Israeli conflict that has been going on between Jews desiring the return of their Biblically ordained Homeland, even before Israel became a nation, and Arab that are culturally taught the Islamic Supremacist concept – once conquered for Islam then always owned by Islam (Dar al-Islam).

 

The premise of Farah’s editorial is based on polls which show that the majority of Arabs that call themselves Palestinians believe in a ONE-State solution in which all Jews are exterminated. In case the word “exterminated” didn’t sink in. These Arabs calling themselves Palestinians desire a Palestinian State in which Jews are ethnically cleansed from the Holy Land.

 

Farah stating that the 2-State Solution is dead implies (but not actually stated) the only alternative then is a One-State Solution. Didn’t I just write that is exactly what the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians believe? Indeed I did; however the One-State Solution implied by Farah is one sovereign Israel that includes Judea-Samaria (labeled West Bank by Jordan and occupied land by Arabs and blind Liberals – SEE ALSO HERE). Frankly I would include Gaza but the Jews that lived there that actually operated prospering businesses, were forced to leave by now deceased Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Sharon, whether an actual change in stands or forced by arm twisting by the EU & USA, created a term called Disengagement. Sharon’s Disengagement was to unilaterally transport Jews outside of Gaza as a precursor to an independent Palestine. That mistake resulted in the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas (dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews) seizing control of Gaza and setting up a terrorist military structure armed with ballistic missiles that wasted no time to be aimed at Israeli cities. This should have proved to the world that the Land for Peace concept as a deceptive scam in the agenda to destroy Israel rather than a Palestinian State living in peaceful coexistence with Israel.

 

The concern of pro-Israel supporters is that extending sovereignty over Judea-Samaria under the current democratic political system in Israel would lead to an Arab birthrate population explosion that would make Jews the minority electorate in their own homeland. In which case a Muslim majority would democratically end the Jewish State in favor of a Muslim State basing the rule of law upon Islamic Sharia. Just view the manner in which Muslim dominated nations treat their minority Christian population to get a snapshot of what would happen to Jews in their own Homeland under Sharia Law. Then realize the hatred in Muslim lands for Jews dwarfs in comparison Muslims disdain Christians in Muslim lands.

 

Might the Jewish Israel begin their own version of ethnic cleansing JUST as the Muslim neighbors intend for Jews? Israel’s rule of law has a Western orientation. Even though Jews have faced ethnic cleansing for a better part of their existence after their last expulsion from their Homeland, I doubt Israel would utilize the same method to solve a majority Muslim problem. After all Israel is experiencing the same political polarization between Left and Right as America currently is. I am hopefully guessing the cough compassionate Liberal Jews would not stand for anything to do with ethnic cleansing. There might be a very small minority of Israeli Conservatives that favor some sort of ethnic cleansing or actual political apartheid but most politically Conservative Jews are sane enough to join the cough compassionate Liberal Jews. So unlike Muslim Arabs gaining control democratically of the Holy Land that would stoop to ethnic cleansing, Israel would not.

 

It is my humble politically incorrect opinion the best option for a ONE-State Israel Solution is a forced expulsion of Arabs that hate Jews. This is one practice that Jews have experienced first-hand over thousands of years. However, unlike Jews, an Arab expulsion would be sending them to Muslim majority nations. The Jewish Diaspora NEVER resulted in a Jewish majority in any non-Jewish land.

 

At this point Liberals (Leftists, Progressives, etc.) are howling for me to experience the noose and Muslims for my stoning or beheading. Think about it though. Because of the Islamic Supremacist concept Dar al-Islam vs. Dar al-Harb, we will always see Muslim nations trying retake the Holy Land. Ergo, the best viability for the Jewish State of Israel is to rid the nation of its Islamic Trojan Horse –expulsion of Jew-hating Muslims.

2-STATE SOLUTION IS DEAD

Exclusive: Joseph Farah reveals reality behind efforts for Israeli-Palestinian peace deal

 

By Joseph Farah

June 29, 2014

WorldNetDaily

 

It’s official – or should be.

 

The much-championed, so-called two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict should never be mentioned again as even a remote possibility. The “international community,” as it is known, as well as the nation of Israel, needs to declare it dead, buried, pushing up daisies.

Why?

 

Because it is. We just need a coroner to come and make it official. We have to get beyond denial and recognize reality.

 

The reality is that the very people for whom the two-state solution was dreamed up to satisfy have rejected it resoundingly as an option.

 

Last week, a poll commissioned by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy found a clear majority of so-called Palestinians in Judea and Samaria and the Gaza Strip rejects the idea of creating a Palestinian state in those territories.

 

In Judea and Samaria, 55 percent said they reject the idea in favor of exterminating all Jews from the Jordan to the Mediterranean. In Gaza, fully 68 percent took that position.

How anyone could think that creating yet another radical Islamic state in the Middle East is a solution for anything is beyond me – poll or no poll. But clearly, the solution that has been de rigueur for 25 years, is not going to make anyone happy – least of all Arab Palestinians.

 

The poll results are even worse than that when you scrutinize the numbers carefully. They show that less than one-third of Arab Palestinians actually support a two-state solution in which Arabs live peacefully alongside a Jewish state. Nearly two-thirds of the Arab population says “resistance should continue until all of historic Palestine is liberated.”

 

It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

 

Experience more of Joseph Farah’s no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore

 

For decades, the Arab leadership, inside the territories and outside, has been fostering anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hatred and a victimization mentality in its schools, its media, its popular culture and in its own rhetoric. They indoctrinate the population, from the earliest age, to embrace jihad and martyrdom as the only acceptable path. Under the circumstance, it’s amazing the level of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish terrorism and violence is not higher.

 

The institute’s scholars got it right in their analysis of the poll: “U.S. policy should seriously consider abandoning all hope now of a permanent Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.” They suggested focusing on “immediate steps to lower tensions.”

 

Those steps should include a complete suspension of aid to the territories until all incendiary and provocative and anti-Semitic government, school and media rhetoric ceases. Since that will never happen, the U.S. and other aid could be put to much more constructive use.

 

These polls, by the way, are as close to free elections as anything in which Arab Palestinians get a chance to a chance to participate. So it is truly meaningful.

 

This has always been Israel’s problem, try as it might to make peace.

 

How do you make peace with a neighbor who doesn’t want it? How do you make peace with a neighbor who is sworn to murder you? How do you make peace with a neighbor who is sworn to killing you, your family, your community, your entire nation?

 

That’s what Israel is up against and has been up against since it was reborn as a nation-state 66 years ago. Things aren’t getting better. They are getting worse.

 

So why not try something new?

 

There’s an old saying, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.”

 

It doesn’t work. It’s not rational. It’s not scientific. It’s no sensible.

 

Has anyone noticed in the U.S. State Department? Not a chance.

 

Because the U.S. State Department has never been accused of being pragmatic, rational, scientific or sensible.

USA, EU and UN join to MAKE a Judenrein Palestinian State


No Jews Palestine - Dry Bones

John R. Houk

© January 19, 2014

 

There has been a conflict between Israel and Arabs – primarily Muslim – since the Jews managed to turn the hope of the Balfour Declaration hope into a Jewish State reality in their ancestral land in 1948. The essence of the conflict is simpler than world leaders are willing to admit. The conflict boils down to the thousands of years desire to return to their Biblically Promised Land and multiple centuries of persecution that spanned the Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Christian Europe through the ages including the NAZI Holocaust of late 1930s to 1945 and actually a modern reemergence today. The Balfour Declaration perceived as a promise of return for Jews rubbed Muslims who had been indoctrinated in Islamic Supremacism of once land was conquered it became a part of the Land of Islam (Dar al Islam) never to be restored to the conquered non-Muslims. The 20th century Alia of Jews to the Holy Land was and still is a miniscule portion of the actual Holy Land/Levant area AND YET Muslim theopolitical ideology refuses such a small portion to exist under non-Muslim control. As long as Muslims view the Quran as the pure very word of their Allah sent through Mohammed and as long as the almost as holy Islamic Hadith and Sira-Sunnah commentaries amplify Quranic hatred of Jews there will be no end to a conflict between Israel and Muslims motivated by Islamic Supremacist Dar al Harb thinking. UNLESS of course the Islamic terrorist led coalition of Arabs that call themselves Palestinians succeed in another Jewish genocide destroying Israel. Creating a sovereign Palestinian State that has one purpose in destroying Israel. A Palestinian State will result in a Judenrein area in the new Arab State followed by the design of destroying Israel.

 

In this present time when you think of the phrase ‘ethnic cleansing’ what is the first thing that comes to mind? As a part of the aging Baby Boom generation the first thing that comes to mind for me is Adolf Hitler’s agenda to rid Europe of traditionally vilified ethnicities, mentally challenged, physically challenged via birth defects, other groups NAZI ideology considered to inferior to mix with the so-called Aryan Germanic peoples and especially Jews. The Hitler-NAZI Solution for a society of ethnically pure Aryan Germanic peoples resulted in around 12 MILLION genocidal deaths. Approximately 6 MILLION of that were Jews.

 

Other significant moments in recent history’s ethnic cleansing can span from the end of WWI right through to the present day.

 

Toward the end of WWI Turkey began to ethnically cleanse Armenian Christians killing about 1.5 MILLION Armenians:

 

In April 1915 the Ottoman government embarked upon the systematic decimation of its civilian Armenian population. The persecutions continued with varying intensity until 1923 when the Ottoman Empire ceased to exist and was replaced by the Republic of Turkey. The Armenian population of the Ottoman state was reported at about two million in 1915. An estimated one million had perished by 1918, while hundreds of thousands had become homeless and stateless refugees. By 1923 virtually the entire Armenian population of Anatolian Turkey had disappeared. (READ MOREArmenian Genocide; By Rouben Paul Adalian; Armenian National Institute; Copyright © 1998-2014)

 

After WWI Turkey and Greece had a population exchange of Turks and Greeks with the Greek expulsion becoming brutal:

 

Pontian and Anatolian Greeks were victims of a broader Turkish genocidal project aimed at all Christian minorities in the Ottoman Empire. A total of more than 3.5 million Greeks, Armenians, and Assyrians were killed under the successive regimes of the Young Turks and of Mustafa Kemal from roughly 1914 to 1923. Of this, as many as 1.5 million Greeks may have died. The end of the genocide marked a profound rupture in the long Greek historical presence on the Asia Minor. (READ MOREBold Emphasis Mine; The Genocide of Ottoman Greeks, 1914-1923; Copyright © 2013, Rutgers)

 

Here is brief gleaning of 20th and 21st Century genocides from “The worst genocides of the 20th and 21st Centuries” provided by Piero Scaruffi in 2009:

 

 

o   Mao Ze-Dong (China, 1958-61 and 1966-69, Tibet 1949-50: 49-78,000,000

 

o   Jozef Stalin (USSR, 1932-39): 7,000,000 (the gulags plus the purges plus Ukraine’s famine)

 

o   Hideki Tojo (Japan, 1941-44): 5,000,000 (civilians in WWII)

 

o   Pol Pot (Cambodia, 1975-79): 1,700,000

 

o   Kim Il Sung (North Korea, 1948-94): 1.6 million (purges and concentration camps)

 

o   Saddam Hussein (Iran 1980-1990 and Kurdistan 1987-88): 600,000

 

 

The above list is only a sampling provided by Piero Scaruffi.

 

There is the Rwanda Genocide of 1994:

 

Beginning on April 6, 1994, Hutus began slaughtering the Tutsis in the African country of Rwanda. As the brutal killings continued, the world stood idly by and just watched the slaughter. Lasting 100 days, the Rwanda genocide left approximately 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu sympathizers dead. (READ THE RESTBold Emphasis Mine; Rwanda Genocide; By Jennifer Rosenberg; About.com; ©2014)

 

There is the Bosnia-Herzegovina Genocide roughly 1992-95 – 200,000:

 

In the Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina, conflict between the three main ethnic groups, the Serbs, Croats, and Muslims, resulted in genocide committed by the Serbs against the Muslims in Bosnia. (READ THE RESTBosnia-Herzegovina 1992-1995 – 200,000; Copyright © 1999 The History Place™ All Rights Reserved)

 

The genocides I have mentioned here are only the ones that my history interests have taken me. This is hardly an exhaustive list of ethnic cleansing.

 

Are you aware the collusion of USA, EU and the UN to promote sovereign Palestinian State includes PA-PLO Islamic terrorists to make the area Jew-free EVEN THOUGH 20% of the Israel population are Arab Muslims? This amounts to joining the Palestinian elites desire to ethnically cleanse Jews while demanding that not only can Arab Muslims continue to live in Israel but that the descendants of the Arabs made into refugees after the failed invasion of several Arab nations tried to destroy the new Israeli State in 1948. WND’s Joseph Farah has some legitimate and interesting thoughts on this issue.

‘Ethnic cleansing’ in ‘Palestine’

Exclusive: Joseph Farah asks, why is U.S. supporting creation of anti-Semitic hate state?


By Joseph Farah

January 17, 2014

WorldNetDaily

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is citing a cold, hard, inconvenient fact I have been pointing out for a number of years – one that has the potential to reframe the entire Israeli-Palestinian debate.

 

In an hour-long interview with Canada’s CTV this week, he explained that the official position of the Arabs on a Palestinian state is that the land must first be “Jew free” through ethnic cleansing that is rejected everywhere else in the world today an argument first made by me 10 years ago, and I alone have continued to make it repeatedly ever since.


When interviewer Lisa LaFlamme pointed out that one in five Israelis are Arabs, Netanyahu responded: “Sure, we’re not asking them to change their religion. They have full civic rights. Now in the Palestinian state, the way it’s being contemplated, no Jew can live there. It has to be Jew free, ethnic cleansing. Well, what is that? There are Arabs who live here, but they can’t contemplate Jews living there.”

 

That’s exactly what the Palestinian Authority is demanding – ethnic cleansing of it land so that a future Palestinian state can be Jew-free.

 

It’s amazing to me that the rest of the civilized world doesn’t categorically reject such a premise. But it doesn’t. In fact, no one even speaks of it. An idea that would be condemned anywhere else in the world is considered appropriate – even commendable – in the Middle East.

 

There’s one thing almost all civilized people can agree on – “ethnic cleansing” is bad. “Ethnic cleansing” is defined as a policy of eliminating unwanted ethnic or religious groups by deportation, forcible displacement, mass murder or by threats of such acts, with the intent of creating a territory inhabited by people of a homogeneous or pure ethnicity, religion, culture and history.

 

Experience more of Joseph Farah’s no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore

 

Nevertheless, even with this broad consensus opposing ethnic cleansing, there’s one place in the world nearly everyone supports ethnic cleansing.

 

It’s in the lands known as Judea and Samaria on the West Bank of the Jordan River under the administration of the Palestinian Authority. There – and only there – does the entire international community favor the complete elimination of all Jewish residents by deportation and forcible displacement if not by mass murder or threats of such acts.

 

That’s because the Palestinian Authority insists the “Palestinian state” it seeks to create be 100 percent “Judenrein,” as Hitler would say – free of Jews. And that’s OK with all those supporting the concept of creating a new state based on ethnic cleansing and bigotry that would make Himmler blush.

 

Did you know this is a prerequisite for a Palestinian state?

 

Very few do.

 

It is simply never discussed in the media.

 

It is the only place in the world where it is perfectly acceptable to insist on the eradication of residents of a particular religious or ethnic background.

 

This is one of the great untold stories of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

 

In any other part of the world, this kind of racist, anti-Semitic effort at ethnically cleansing a region would be roundly condemned by all civilized people. Yet, because most people simply don’t understand the clear, official plan by the Arab leaders to force out all Jews from the new Palestinian state, those leaders retains a degree of sympathy, even political support, from much of the world.

 

Think about what I am saying: It is the official policy of the Palestinian Authority that all Jews must get off the land! Why is the United States supporting the creation of a new, racist, anti-Semitic hate state? Why do American taxpayers send hundreds of millions of dollars a year to the leaders of this movement? Why is the civilized world viewing this as a prescription for peace in the region? Why is this considered an acceptable idea?

 

Can you think of any other place in the world where that kind of official policy of racism and ethnic cleansing is tolerated – even condoned?

 

Why are the rules different in the Middle East? Why are the rules different for Arabs? Why are the rules different for Muslims?

 

Why do we accept as a fait accompli that Jews should be forced off their land in the coming state of Palestine?

 

Can you imagine the U.S. backing a plan to uproot forcibly people from their homes because they are Muslim or any other religion?

 

Of course not.

 

But the monsters who control the Palestinian Authority, even the so-called “moderates,” demand that all Jews leave. Jews will simply be unwelcome in this future Palestinian state. End of story. It’s a non-negotiable demand.

 

Isn’t that the definition of ethnic cleansing?

 

Why is that acceptable?

 

I’ve been asking this question for a decade. Thankfully, Netanyahu has made the point. It must be repeated over and over and over again until the whole world recognizes the diabolical Nazi-like plan afoot within the Palestinian Authority.

Obama Forgets Mandela’s Anti-American Side of the Coin


Barack Obama Eulogizing Mandela 12-10-13

John R. Houk

© December 10, 2013

 

I posted “Mandela is Deserving of Praise in South Africa, but NOT USA” a few days ago. In that post I had to admit that Nelson Mandela was and should be a Civil Rights hero for the Black Majority of the nation South Africa. Mandela’s political struggle was as a bona fide freedom fighter for Black South Africans that were treated as second class citizens ever since Europeans began exploiting the area for economic gain and colonialism roughly around the 1650s. The other side of the coin is not so praise worthy.

 

Mandela was a Marxist that sided with the goals of Radical Islam to destroy Israel and was Anti-American in his rhetoric. An American President should be honest enough to publicly show both sides of the Mandela coin. In eulogizing Mandela in South Africa President Barack Hussein Obama praised the one side of the coin and in effect castigated Western nations about economic inequality between rich and poor with the implication the good President was including the USA. Here is a WaPo quote (For those who don’t know “Madiba” is a term of endearment for Mandela):

 

There are too many of us who happily embrace Madiba’s legacy of racial reconciliation, but passionately resist even modest reforms that would challenge chronic poverty and growing inequality,” Obama said, less than a week after delivering a broad warning over the consequences of rising economic inequality in the United States. “And there are too many of us, too many, who stand on the sidelines, comfortable in complacency or cynicism when our voices must be heard.” (Italics addedEulogizing Mandela, Obama celebrates and scolds; By Scott Wilson; Washington Post; 12/10/13 8:28 am)

 

Here is the typical eloquence of President Obama eulogizing Nelson Mandela. It is a little over 18 minutes long courtesy of ABC:

 

VIDEO: Nelson Mandela Memorial: President Obama Honors Legacy of South African Leader

 

President Obama failed completely to show the Marxist, Anti-American and pro-Islamist nature of Nelson Mandela. Of course if Obama actually demonstrated truthful courage he would not be making the public eulogy in South Africa.

 

Joseph Farah provides a good dose of truth about Nelson Mandela – primarily in Mandela’s own words – that few American politicians and Mainstream Media elites would dare to tell because the politically correct thing to do now is to only talk about the Liberty provided for the majority of Black South Africans who suffered under the White Minority.

The real Mandela in his own words

Exclusive: Joseph Farah shares quotes from late South African president


By Joseph Farah

December 9, 2013

WorldNetDaily

 

I noticed over the weekend that lists of quotes from Nelson Mandela had gone viral on the Internet.

 

None of the lists I saw included any of these – which say more about the man and the myth than you could have learned by reading all the reports in the international establishment press.

 

1) “If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.”

 

2) “Long live the Cuban revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro … Cuban internationalists have done so much for African independence, freedom and justice. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of a vicious imperialist campaign designed to destroy the advances of the Cuban revolution. We too want to control our destiny. … There can be no surrender. It is a case of freedom or death. The Cuban revolution has been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people.”

 

3) “[T]he people of Asia and Africa have seen through the slanderous campaign conducted by the USA against the socialist countries. They know that their independence is threatened not by any of the countries in the socialist camp but by the USA, who has surrounded their continent with military bases. The communist bogey is an American stunt to distract the attention of the people of Africa from the real issue facing them, namely, American imperialism.”

 

Experience more of Joseph Farah’s no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore

 

4) “Under a Communist Party government, South Africa will become a land of milk and honey. Political, economic and social rights will cease to be enjoyed by whites only. They will be shared equally by whites and non-whites. There will be enough land and houses for all. There will be no unemployment, starvation and disease. Workers will earn decent wages; transport will be cheap and education free.”

 

5) “Yasser Arafat was one of the outstanding freedom fighters of this generation, one who gave his entire life to the cause of the Palestinian people.”

 

6) “The cause of communism is the greatest cause in the history of mankind!”

 

7) “Those who feel irritated by our friendship with President Khadafy can go jump in the pool.”

 

8) “There’s one place where (Fidel Castro’s) Cuba stands out head and shoulders above the rest – that is in its love for human rights and liberty!”

9) “The victory of socialism in the U.S.S.R., in the People’s Republic of China, in Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland and Rumania, where the living conditions of the people were in many respects similar and even worse than ours, proves that we too can achieve this important goal.”

 

10) “Communists everywhere fight to destroy capitalist society and to replace it with socialism, where the masses of the common people, irrespective of race or color, will live in complete equality, freedom and happiness. They seek to revolutionize society and are thus called revolutionaries. Those who support capitalism with its class divisions and other evils and who oppose our just struggles to end oppression are called counter revolutionaries.”

 

11) “In our own country, the struggles of the oppressed people are guided by the South African Communist Party and inspired by its policies. The aim of the S.A.C.P. is to defeat the Nationalist government and to free the people of South Africa from the evils of racial discrimination and exploitation.”

 

By the way, I did find one quote from Mandela that I really like. I don’t think he meant it. I do. In fact, if he got his wish on this one, the international media’s reporting about Mandela’s death would have been much different.

 

“A critical, independent and investigative press is the lifeblood of any democracy. The press must be free from state interference. It must have the economic strength to stand up to the blandishments of government officials. It must have sufficient independence from vested interests to be bold and inquiring without fear or favor. It must enjoy the protection of the constitution, so that it can protect our rights as citizens.”

 

Amen to that last one.

 

You know what they say: Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
