A Year of Warning and Guidance by Allah’s (God’s) Divine Servant

- December 29, 2020

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”—Isaiah 54:17 KJV

CHICAGO—Unlike previous years, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan did not speak in public very many times in 2020. But when he did, his messages were powerful, potent, and pregnant with knowledge and Divine insight.

In what was a difficult and trying year for millions of people, Min. Farrakhan left no doubt in his supporters, detractors, and enemies that after 60-plus decades of his unwavering work and sacrifice on behalf of Black and oppressed people, that his faith in Allah (God) and the wisdom and guidance he receives from his teacher, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, remains strong and unshakable.

2020 marked a year in which the number of Min. Farrakhan’s messages decreased, but what is contained in these messages is immeasurable.


Prior to the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic that struck the world, disproportionately impacting the U.S., devastating the economy, healthcare and educational systems, and disrupting the lives of everyday Americans, Min. Farrakhan warned of what was on the horizon during his Saviours’ Day 2020 message delivered Feb. 23 in Detroit, “The Unraveling of a Great Nation.”

President Donald Trump had just been acquitted by the U.S. Senate after being impeached by the House of Representatives and political anger and acrimony was seemingly at an all-time high. The Minister observed that he was not looking at America in its finest hour. He warned Blacks in particular, that they were opting to be part of that which is “unraveling right in front of your eyes.”

“You see the country cascading downward. You see the moral fiber of America getting into the gutter. Who wants a membership in a house of whores? Bought and paid for leaders. Nobody can stand up if the enemy says, ‘you don’t stand up for that.’ Satan is having a field day with America. Evil has been made fair seeming,” the Minister told a capacity crowd of thousands at the TCF Center. He called his message one full of good news and warning.

Why Black People Cannot Trust The Pfizer Vaccine

The Pfizer pharmaceutical company beat everyone to the punch by being the first Covid-19 vaccine to be granted Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA. There is an aggressive media and government campaign to “[push] blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans to the front of the [vaccine] line, ahead of whites.”

The Department of Veterans Affairs has apparently determined that these groups will be given priority for receiving the vaccine once it is available, despite the fact that 60 percent of the Covid-19 cases and 61 percent of the deaths among veterans are White (16 percent and 22 percent are Black, respectively).

But Black people have every reason to be profoundly suspicious of Pfizer as Pfizer has a history of doing horrendous medical experiments on Black people for profit. American drug companies routinely hop across borders in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America conducting risky drug experiments with little oversight. This is a legacy of the colonial view of “The Colony as Laboratory” for the Western powers.

Foreign drug trials in the Third World are cheaper, faster, and provide huge pools of human guinea pigs for experimentation with minimal red tape or regulation. In 2006 Rep. Tom Lantos of California, the senior Democrat on the International Relations committee, cited an unconscionable Pfizer case as an example of “large pharmaceutical companies, both here and in Europe … using these poor, illiterate and uniformed people as guinea pigs.”

Surviving the Valley of Death Farrakhan warns of genocidal plot against Black America, and calls for renewed effort to unite in a critical hour

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam was inspired as he spoke to a virtual summit that brought Black activists, thought leaders and scholars together in an effort to forge a strong and effective Black united front. But he called for awareness of the dangerous time in which Blacks live and the ongoing genocidal effort to destroy an entire people.

Organized by Sadiki Kambon of the Nubian Leadership Circle, the gathering closed Dec. 12 with an address by Min. Farrakhan and included the participation of scholar Cornel West, Dr. E. Faye Williams of the National Congress of Black Women, Dr. Ray Winbush of Morgan State University, legendary broadcaster and activist Bob Law and others. The theme of the online gathering was “Having The Will To Afrikan Nation Build!” The Nubian Leadership Circle is a nationwide alliance of Black leadership groups and organizations.

The Minister expressed great joy at the spirit, aim and content of the virtual conference and its potential good for Black people. But, he warned, there is another side to what is happening today—the anger, hatred and determination of Whites to destroy Black people, said Min. Farrakhan.

“Do you know the enemy? Do you really know the enemy? Do you really think he’s happy to see what you’re doing today? Do you really think that he will not hesitate to destroy us when he sees his end in sight?” he asked.

While stoking fear about the Covid-19 pandemic, the enemy wants Black people to take recently approved vaccines, but the former children of our slave masters can never be trusted, warned Min. Farrakhan.

“Now we have to survive because the Death Plan is in motion. What is the Death Plan? You say, ‘well Black folks are the most prone to the covid virus.’ Why is that? Because of the comorbidity conditions: diabetes, heart failure, obesity. Name all the comorbidity problems—we lead in that. But let me ask you this. How did we get in this condition?” he asked.

The worst food is sent to Blacks, shipped via zip code, and tainted drinking water is widespread, he said.

Blacks don’t need a Pfizer vaccine, they need healthy food, proper medical treatment, vitamin D and the healing properties of the sun, Min. Farrakhan added.

“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told me that in the sun there are billions of vitamins that you can’t get in anything that is created except through the sun,” he continued. “And when the day of disease comes the vitamins rise up to defend us against disease. That’s why in the Caribbean they’re not worried about a pandemic down there.”

The death plot is extensive and includes not just the rushed vaccines but corporate misdeeds and readily available bad food. Residue from atomic weapons and placed in drums is leeching into oceans with the toxic waste poisoning food from the sea, said Min. Farrakhan.

“You trust so much your enemy. And you’re so fearful of a man that will tell you the truth,” Min. Farrakhan said.

He urged those involved in the summit to get to work quickly and to expand the gathering. No one group or leader has all of the answers but the unity of the whole of Black America is needed and the blueprint for success was seen in the historic 1995 Million Man March, Min. Farrakhan said.

“Beloved family all the wonderful things you talked about today we got to put it into practice; but we have to live. Those of you who are health professionals they want you to take the vaccine first. If the vaccine isn’t moving good enough, notice they’re talking about offering you money now. When has this devil ever offered you $1,000 or $1,500 to take a shot? They give you free shots of toxic waste. The same lead that’s in the water in Flint is in the water in Detroit, is in the water in Cleveland. It’s in the water in Chicago. You aren’t free. You are on a death watch. If you don’t understand it, you’re not going to be here to do all the wonderful things you talked about,” he said.

Don’t fear losing a job or being denied school because of refusal to take the Covid-19 vaccine, he continued. Do for yourself and create your own education system, which you have the expertise and knowledge to do, said the Minister.

He called for continuing to meet every three months and bringing the NAACP, which hosted the National African American Leadership Summit in the 1990s under executive director Ben Chavis, who was eventually ousted by the civil rights organization, and other groups to the table. NAALS drew a cross section of Black leaders, organizations and scholars together but Jewish groups worked to torpedo the effort by condemning and withholding funding from many Black groups involved because of the Minister’s participation.

But when Blacks came together absent White control, there was no stopping the Million Man March. Unity brought strength and needed information on Oct. 16, 1995 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., even when leaders like the Rev. Jesse Jackson joined the effort late.

“Rev. Jackson was the only one when we had the Million Man March who spoke about what was going on in Congress with the criminal justice act where Mr. Biden was one of the principal architects of the Crime Bill. Remember that,” Min. Farrakhan said. And, the Minister added, a young organizer named Barack Obama was at the march.

“Remember the Million Man March. It took all of us working together to make that great, great day. That’s a template for how we can do what we need to do. Look beloved we can do it but we have to do it together. The Million Man March, you have never seen so many Black women at a Million Man March. The dais was full of Black women that loved what we were trying to do.”

Mrs. Betty Shabazz, the wife of Brother Malcolm X, was there and spoke. Earlier that year, the Minister had blasted the federal government after Qubilah Shabazz, a daughter of Malcolm X and Dr. Shabazz, was accused in a murder plot in conjunction with Jewish government informant Michael Fitzpatrick. Mrs. Shabazz and the Minister came together in May 6, 1995 at the Apollo Theater in Harlem for what became a celebration of the government essentially dropping the case against Qubilah Shabazz and steps toward reconciliation.

“We stood together. White folks went crazy because they love it when you hate each other. They love to feed your beefs, not me. You don’t hear me talking about nobody who is Black that is talking against me. I don’t. I can take it if it’s coming from you. I know you’re only speaking because you don’t know and I accept that. You know when you love somebody and they do things that injure you what do you do? You love Jesus? You do? I do too. So, I live Jesus. When they hit me, you don’t see me hitting them back. I give you another cheek because in the end I’m going to win. I’m going to get you for the sake of God and the truth,” said Min. Farrakhan.

“Let’s learn how to love each other. Believe me what a feeling it is. In that day at the Million Man March nearly two million showed up. Not one person fought another at the Million Man March. No crime in the city of Washington on that day because we brought them all together on a spiritual level,” he observed.

And, said Min. Farrakhan, “I’m free to go anywhere in the world because I’m supported by the Nation of Islam. I’ve sent others all over the world to conferences. I’ve helped other organizations that were dying with some of the money that these Believers that were on this program today give to me.”

The Nation is not a small group but all Black people in America who need to unite and serve as “a catalyst for the whole Black nation all over the earth to rise when we rise,” said the Minister.

He cautioned against too much faith in President-elect Joe Biden, though Mr. Biden may mean well. No single White man can deliver what is needed to change the condition of Black people, America is heavily divided and Blacks have never gotten what they deserve from the Democratic Party, said Min. Farrakhan.

Blacks rescued the Biden campaign, he said. “Our people wanted Mr. Trump out of there. I have never seen Black people talk about a White president like our people talked about Mr. Trump,” he said.

And, said Min. Farrakhan, “Kamala Harris is a heavyweight. Look at how White folks are thinking right now, ‘She’s a heartbeat away from being the first Black (female) president,’ if Mr. Biden dies while in office. So White folks are upset, that’s what I’m trying to tell you. They see our rise and we are witnessing their fall.”

“You can’t throw me away even if you want to. God isn’t going to let it happen,” added the Minister.

An aim for the Nubian Circle’s virtual gathering was to facilitate unity, build a “common base of operations” and develop a blueprint that individual organizations can use with collective support. The idea is to pool and create resources that will sustain the Black community from within and lessen reliance on outside support, explained Mr. Kambon.

The Nubian Leadership Circle meeting included seven issue areas or cadres: Spiritual Renewal; Health and Education; Land and Food; Economic Development; Arts and Culture; Family Essence; and Communication Technology.

Minister Farrakhan has sponsored training in soil production and urban farming. In his recent address, he encouraged leaders to mobilize and learn these techniques to unite and heal our communities.

Min. Farrakhan explained that the 1995 Million Man March showed how unity on a spiritual level can bring success.

The Covid-19 Vaccine and the U.S. policy of depopulation

Part I of a series on the Covid-19 vaccine

“We will not accept your vaccine so you can slow down, because whenever you bring it out, it’s for your people. You give it to them because we are not accepting death. You are the very representative of death itself: the pale horse. Everywhere you have gone in the world, hell went right behind you. We are sick of hell and we are sick of death. So all of you that have made a covenant with death, your covenant is going to be annulled … your agreement with hell will be broken.”—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

In addition to the above words lifted from the Criterion on July 4, 2020, Minister Farrakhan said it would be a declaration of war on all of us if the government tried to physically force us to take the vaccine. Within days after he spoke, the U.S. government completely changed its strategy for getting the country to take the Covid-19 vaccination. It pivoted from threats to persuasion, using Black medical and health care professionals, politicians, educators and clergy members to urge our people to act in opposition to Divine Commandments from Allah (God).

Now that the vaccines are ready, an elevated level of fear of the pandemic has been created to make the people believe they must have the vaccine. Stoking fear and ignorance, various methods have been intensified, not the least of which is monopolization of perception through a 24-hour news cycle, censoring dissenting views and creating a barren environment by prolonging or returning to isolation, closed schools, closed religious institutions, limiting exposure to fresh air and insisting that people stay away from their own families. All of this is being advanced on a claim of scientific and medical authority.

Poll: Blacks wary of Covid-19 vaccines and distrustful of government

Despite added pressure, including an appeal by some Black medical professionals, universities, and organizations, Black people don’t trust the fast-approaching Covid-19 vaccines nor claims by vaccine makers and the U.S. government that they are safe.

A recent poll indicates “fewer than half of Black adults, 48 percent, say they probably or definitely would get a coronavirus vaccine if it were available for free—including just 18 percent who definitely would get vaccinated.”

And, against that backdrop, there is talk of paying Americans to take the vaccine. “The reluctance of many Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it’s ready has some wondering: Should people get paid to get the shot to ensure herd immunity?” said a article.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

“The latest Gallup poll—conducted before Pfizer and Moderna announced encouraging clinical trial results of their candidates—found 58 percent of Americans would get a free U.S. government-approved COVID-19 vaccine if it were ready today,” said the Nov. 30 report.
