Malcolm X's Assassination (50 Years Later)

Malcolm X (50 Years After His Assassination)

Malcolm X was a strong hero for black human beings globally and for humanity in general. He was very honest and courageous in standing up for freedom and justice. His story is a human story that not only represented how evil economic exploitation is in the ghettos of America. His story showed the world that black people can rise up and fight oppression despite our socioeconomic conditions. We are one people and nothing will turn us around. I wrote information about Malcolm X back in 2005. Today, in 2015, we live in a new era of time. We see the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and we witness massive changes in the world society. Back in February of 1996, when I was in middle school, I did a project of Malcolm X. Back then, I was 12 and I wouldn't be 13 until December of 1996, so I was born in 1983. Now, it is time to show more information about the late Brother. Malcolm X was born in May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. His parents were strong people. His father was named Earl Little and his mother was Louise Little (who was from Grenada, so Malcolm X had some Caribbean heritage). Both of his parents were followers of Marcus Garvey's movement. Earl Little was a tall man and he was not afraid of confronting racism in public. Earl Little taught black people about black self-pride and self-reliance (which were some of the major teachings of Marcus Garvey). You can't know about Malcolm X without learning about Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Garvey's UNIA movement was highly popular in the black community during the early 20th century. Garvey wanted black Diasporic unity, so black people can be connected or unified politically, socially, and economically with the Motherland of Africa. Garvey did not complete his mission, because of U.S. government pressure and other reasons.

Earl Little preached the message of Garvey throughout his life. Earl Little's house was burned down to the ground by white racists (on November 7, 1929), because Earl Little wanted black people to have racial justice. He believed that black people should go to Africa, because America was cruel and oppressive against black Americans. Malcolm X's father died at the hands of white racists. He was assaulted and killed by being ran over by a trolley in the city of Lansing, Michigan (on September 28, 1931). Malcolm X would never forget that moment ever in his life. Malcolm X's mother became more stressed emotionally after her husband was murdered. The household was in disarray. Bills piled up and his mother developed mental illness. Malcolm X's mother or Louise Little was sent by the authorities into the State Mental Hospital at Kalamazoo, where she remained for twenty-six years. Authorities split up Malcolm X (including his brothers and sisters) into foster parents. Malcolm X was extremely intelligent when he was in junior high school. He was once voted class President. He was popular, but he experienced racism not only from white students, but from his own teacher. His own teacher told Malcolm X, who said that he wanted to be a lawyer, that being a lawyer was: " realistic goal for a n____" Malcolm X soon dropped out of high school and worked in various jobs across America. He especially loved Harlem, because of its culture, its history, its people, and the freedom that it represented to him. He worked in trains and saw America. He lived for a while in Boston with her half-sister named Mrs. Ella Collins. He had numerous love affairs with women. Malcolm X was also involved in criminal activities and the underground economy (involving drug smuggling, gambling, and prostitution). Malcolm X would find unique ways to escape serving in the military during WWII. 

He was desperate for survival, respect, and power. In the streets, his nickname was "Big Red." One of his great friends was nicknamed "Shorty." His real name is Malcolm Jarvis. The Massachusetts police caught Malcolm X and his friend in a robbery. Malcolm X was charged with Grand Larceny & Breaking and Entering in January 1, 1946.  Later, both of them would serve time in prison. Malcolm X was at first very rebellious in prison against people. He once rejected any belief in God or spirituality. He was once nicknamed "Satan" in prison for his anti-religious attitude. His conversion to the religion of the Nation of Islam began when he was in prison. In fact, he was transferred to numerous prisons where he read not only the dictionary, but tons of other literature as well. His brother Reginald introduces to him about the teachings of the Nation of Islam in 1948. Malcolm X believed that the Nation of Islam gave him the discipline in his life to have the knowledge of self, and strength. The Nation of Islam has similarities and differences with orthodox Islam. Both refused to allow its followers to eat pork or drink alcohol. Each had moral codes in them. Both believed in the worship of Allah and viewed Jesus Christ as a great prophet (not the Messiah or the Son of the living God).

Malcolm X's membership in the Nation of Islam

Yet, the Nation of Islam is more race-centered and followed a more Afrocentric cultural and religious approach to matters than orthodox Islam. The Nation of Islam is, in essence, a separatist movement. Its members want black people to form a separate, autonomous state as a goal. That is why you hear its members talk about Nation building all of the time back then and today. A lot of views of the NOI are similar to the teachings of Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey. In fact, Marcus Garvey supported Booker T. Washington (who focused on the conservative philosophy of self help, agricultural development, and economic development). Washington and WEB DuBois disagreed on the methods on how the legitimate goal of freedom, justice, and equality for all black people ought to be achieved. Washington was right that there is nothing wrong with being upright morally & building industry in a positive direction. WEB DuBois was right in saying that we must continue to struggle for political and social equality without delay (beyond just forming some businesses. In other words, we have to develop a class analysis. We must expose the fact about how the bourgeois has exploited the working class. The working class must own the means of production in order for real economic justice to transpire. Humanity must have human rights and economic rights).

There can be no worship of laissez faire capitalism. Eric Williams' "Capitalism and Slavery" documents how white racists exploited black slaves as capital, which drove the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Both Washington and DuBois agreed that education (I mean true education) was one vital action that should be embraced in improving the lives of black people. Of course, I disagree with the Atlanta Compromise speech. We must never accommodate to the system under the guises of "self-help" and "black capitalism." Malcolm X left prison at August 1952. First, it is important to understand why the rise of the Nation of Islam existed in the black community in the first place. Back during the early to mid 20th century, black people nationwide experienced massive discrimination, racism, lynchings, and deprivation of economic opportunities. Nationalism, in many cases, existed in response to oppression against black people. Nationalism has been used by many as a defensive reaction against white racism. That is why the Nation of Islam grew. Its focus on self-help, the love of black culture, and moral improvement appealed to people. The NOI was one of the few alternatives that Northern and Midwestern black people viewed as a means to help them. Even in the North (where formal segregation laws didn’t exist), black people were forced to live in segregated neighborhoods with massive poverty, police brutality, and injustice. This situation allowed the NOI to grow. The NOI grew in Detroit, Chicago, and in other places throughout America. Under the leadership of Elijah Muhammad and the organizer Malcolm X, the movement grew to about 100,000 people by 1961. After the assassination of Malcolm X, the Nation declined in influence until the 1980’s when the Nation of Islam made a huge comeback. The 1995 Million Man March was formed with great influence from the NOI. Also, the NOI today is more politically active (as compared to decades ago when the Nation of Islam was less involved in political affairs). Even when Malcolm X was in the Nation of Islam, no one could refute his arguments of condemning racism in America, of abhoring police brutality, of opposing imperialism, and and exposing the corporate exploitation of the black community.  I agree with the NOI on some issues and I disagree with them on other issues.

There is no liberation in some token "black pro-capitalist" rhetoric when the working class and the poor deserve economic justice. I reject anti-immigrant chauvinism or xenophobia and I oppose misogyny. I don't believe in Islamophobia and I oppose anti-Semitism. Not to mention that I reject blaming black people collectively for oppression (which has been done not only by white racists, but by some black people). We will condemn not only Western imperialism, but we will condemn slavery going on in Sudan and Mauritania. The current system can't be reformed. We need revolutionary change.

He met Elijah Muhammad for the first time in person during the year of 1952 in Chicago. Malcolm X became a strong spokesman of the Nation of Islam. The X as his surname represents the unknown in mathematics. He used the X letter as way for him to signify that white racists took black people's culture, names, religion, and land. So, X was used to repudiate the surname, which was imposed on his black ancestors by white slave-owners. His great oratory ability and his charisma caused the NOI to increase its membership and power in leaps and bounds. He helped to create the "Elijah Muhammad" Speaks newspaper. Malcolm X spoke everywhere in the ghettos, in the universities, and he was involved in numerous debates. He loved to debate people. He was debating scholars, civil rights activists, and other experts in sociology and racial matters. Nation of Islam members (including Malcolm X) preached not only about the beauty of blackness and the greatness of black history, which is true. They taught that white people are "devils" sent to oppress black people and black people will have to form a separate nation in order for liberation to exist for black people. Malcolm X later felt that the Nation of Islam should become more involved in political engagements (not just in spiritual development) as a means for all black people to be free. Today, the NOI is involved much more in political activism than back then.

Betty Shabbaz saw Malcolm X speaking in a meeting. They later met formally in a dinner party. Each person respected and loved each other a great deal. Betty Shabbaz was impressed with Malcolm X's leadership and work ethic. They dated in museums, dinner parties, meetings, etc. Soon, they married in January 14, 1958. The couple had six daughters. Their names were Attallah, who was born in 1958 and she was named after Attila the Hun. Qubilah was born in 1960 and she was named after Kublai Khan. Ilyasah was born in 1962 and she was named after Elijah Muhammad. Gamilah Lumumba was born in 1964 and she named after Patrice Lumumba. The twins, Malikah and Malaak, were born in 1965 after their father's assassination and they were named after him. The mainstream media's "The Hate that Hate Produced" documentary presented the NOI to most of American society for the first time in history. Louis Lomax and Mike Wallace were involved in the documentary. That's an interesting title of that documentary since it was the racist hate from white racists that oppressed black people for centuries. This documentary came about years after the brutal murder of Emmitt Till.  So, the NOI's existence was created in reaction to oppression. There is absolutely no justification for any form of racial hatred, but we can never solve our problems without exposing the origins of our problems in the first place. After 1959, Malcolm X's popularity grew all over the United States of America. There was the case of the evil death of Brother Ronald Stokes. Ronald Stokes was a NOI member who was killed unjustly by the LAPD in April 27, 1962. Stokes was a Korean war veteran. Stokes was in a mosque expressing his religious liberty rights. The police stormed the mosque in retalitation of the Muslims being acquitted over various charges. The police shot and killed Stokes when his hands were up. Malcolm X wept over the death of Stokes since Stokes was a great friend of Malcolm X when Malcolm X traveled into the West Coast. Malcolm X immediately gave a speech in Los Angeles to condemn police brutality, racism, and injustice. In that speech, he made the accurate point that black people are not oppressed by their religion or their membership in organizations. We are oppressed by racist terrorists, because WE ARE BLACK. Malcolm X wanted widespread demonstrations to fight police brutality in Los Angeles. Elijah Muhammad called off these massive demonstrations. Malcolm X disagreed with this action in private. More disagreements would cause Malcolm X to leave the Nation of Islam. Also, it is important to show that the FBI monitored Malcolm X and the NOI all of the time. The FBI used divide and conquer strategies as a way for the feds to divide Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad intentionally (so, the black liberation struggle can be weakened).

Malcolm X's Message to the Grassroots speech in Detroit on November 10, 1963 outlined the further outline of his views while he was in the Nation of Islam. The speech was delivered in the Northern Negro Grassroots Leadership Conference in King Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan. Detroit is home to strong black people and home to a strong black nationalist community. In the speech, Malcolm X shown the difference between a real Black revolution and the fake “Negro” revolution. He called house Negroes those who loved the interests of the white establishment and he classified field Negroes as people who wanted real revolution. He criticized the March on Washington as a carefully organized farce or circus used to pacify the black community (since the March was aided by corporate dollars and corporate approval). The speech showed the history of numerous revolutions in the world. In the speech, Malcolm X said that: 

“…The white man knows what a revolution is. He knows that the black revolution is world-wide in scope and in nature. The black revolution is sweeping Asia, sweeping Africa, is rearing its head in Latin America. The Cuban Revolution — that’s a revolution. They overturned the system. Revolution is in Asia. Revolution is in Africa. And the white man is screaming because he sees revolution in Latin America. How do you think he’ll react to you when you learn what a real revolution is? You don’t know what a revolution is. If you did, you wouldn’t use that word. A revolution is bloody. Revolution is hostile. Revolution knows no compromise. Revolution overturns and destroys everything that gets in its way. And you, sitting around here like a knot on the wall, saying, “I’m going to love these folks no matter how much they hate me.” No, you need a revolution. Whoever heard of a revolution where they lock arms, as Reverend Cleage was pointing out beautifully, singing “We Shall Overcome”? Just tell me. You don’t do that in a revolution. You don’t do any singing; you’re too busy swinging. It’s based on land. A revolutionary wants land so he can set up his own nation, an independent nation. These Negroes aren’t asking for no nation. They’re trying to crawl back on the plantation…” 

This speech was very important, because it was one of his last speeches while he was in the Nation of Islam. Also, it deal with political issues and it showed the harsh truths that some were afraid of hearing, but nevertheless it had to be told.

The Beginning of the Split

Malcolm X said that after the Kennedy assassination that it was the case of the chickens coming home to roost. Malcolm X's statements were misinterpreted. Malcolm X conveyed the point that the climate of hate contributed to the dangerous atmosphere which caused the unfortunate assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Malcolm X was never trying to intentionally slander JFK or his family at all. Still, Malcolm X was suspended for 90 days by Elijah Muhammad. Later, he was suspended indefinitely. Malcolm X (under his suspension) could not preach in any Nation of Islam mosque and he could not make statements on behalf of the NOI. Malcolm X was hurt and tried to get back and end the suspension. He was unsuccessful. Therefore, on March 8, 1964, he publicly state that he has left the Nation of Islam officially. He wanted to use more independent action in getting racism eradicated in the world. He had ideological disagreements with the Nation of Islam, because Malcolm X believed that the Nation of Islam didn't go far enough in executing political, social action which can cause liberation for black people. Also, Malcolm X found out about the allegations that Elijah Muhammad committed adultery against his wife and had many children (from sectaries and other NOI women) who were not from his wife. This greatly disturbed Malcolm X, because the NOI in his mind should be an excellent example of morality.  He founded Muslim Mosque Inc. which was an independent black Muslim organization. The MMI was totally dedicated to the liberation and freedom of black people. It was heavily religious. He also created the OAAU or the Organization of Afro-American Unity. The OAAU was secular in allowing any black person (regardless of his religious background, nationality, or gender) to join. THe OAAU was dedicated to the freedom of black people too. The OAAU believed in pan-Africanism. Malcolm X in his March 12, 1964 Declaration of Independence wanted to work with any legitimate organization that wanted to fight for the liberation of black people: 

"...I’m not out to fight other Negro leaders or organizations. We must find a common approach, a common solution, to a common problem. As of this minute, I’ve forgotten everything bad that the other leaders have said about me, and I pray they can also forget the many bad things I’ve said about them. The problem facing our people here in America is bigger than all other personal or organizational differences. Therefore, as leaders, we must stop worrying about the threat that we seem to think we pose to each other’s personal prestige, and concentrate our united efforts toward solving the unending hurt that is being done daily to our people here in America..." 

From March 8, 1964 to May of 1964 was the transitional period of Malcolm X’s life. This period was from his split from the Nation of Islam to a little after his famous Hajj. During this period, he further developed his views. Malcolm X gave an interview about his views with A.B. Spellman on March 3, 1964. Malcolm X said that he wanted to think for himself and he did. One of his greatest speeches that he ever gave was the “Ballet or the Bullet” speech. No one can understand fully about Malcolm X without reading, listening, and comprehending what that speech was talking about. Malcolm X stood up for human being's right of self defense. As he said in March 12,1964: "...Concerning nonviolence: it is criminal to teach a man not to defend himself when he is the constant victim of brutal attacks. It is legal and lawful to own a shotgun or a rifle. We believe in obeying the law..." He delivered it at the symposium sponsored by CORE (or the Congress of Racial Equality. CORE at this time was more militant than the SCLC. CORE became more conservative by the late 1960’s and in the 1970’s. For example, CORE leaders supported the presidency of Richard Nixon in 1968 and 1972, which was wrong).

Malcolm X’s “Ballot or the Bullet” was a historic speech, which took place on April 3, 1964 in Cleveland. He also gave his later, definitive Ballot or the Bullet speech, which people know about, on April 12, 1964 inside of King Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan. That speech not displayed great black intellectual strength, but it advocated revolutionary political solutions. The ghetto is a domestic colony and Malcolm X supported the interests of the oppressed courageously. Malcolm X knew about the ghetto for real. The Ballot or the Bullet speech was heavily about the legitimate promotion of political independence. He condemned not only liberal establishment figures, but the Democratic Party itself, because the Democratic Party have executed racism against the black community for a long time (Many people have to witness that George Wallace and other racists were Democrats). As Malcolm X said in the Ballot or the Bullet speech: 

"...The Dixiecrats in Washington, D.C., control the key committees that run the government. The only reason the Dixiecrats control these committees is because they have seniority. The only reason they have seniority is because they come from states where Negroes can't vote. This is not even a government that's based on democracy. lt. is not a government that is made up of representatives of the people. Half of the people in the South can't even vote. Eastland is not even supposed to be in Washington. Half of the senators and congressmen who occupy these key positions in Washington, D.C., are there illegally, are there unconstitutionally....When you expand the civil-rights struggle to the level of human rights, you can then take the case of the black man in this country before the nations in the UN. You can take it before the General Assembly. You can take Uncle Sam before a world court. But the only level you can do it on is the level of human rights. Civil rights keeps you under his restrictions, under his jurisdiction. Civil rights keeps you in his pocket. Civil rights means you're asking Uncle Sam to treat you right. Human rights are something you were born with. Human rights are your God-given rights. Human rights are the rights that are recognized by all nations of this earth. And any time any one violates your human rights, you can take them to the world court...."

He wanted black people to display a more united front to fight evil and oppression. He admitted that he didn’t see any American dream, but an American nightmare. Malcolm X in his speech condemned the token acts of both major parties and wanted black people to register as political Independents, so they can vote for the best candidates. Malcolm X was right to say in the Ballot or the Bullet speech that if the government continued to refuse allow black Americans to have full equality (as he eloquently proved how the federal government deprived black people of their human rights in the Ballot or the Bullet), then African Americans have every right to use self-defense by any means necessary to defend plus protect their own communities. The Ballot or the Bullet speech endorsed Black Nationalism (or the view that African Americans should use their own power to govern the affair of their own communities). The speech wanted more political action. His April 8, 1964 speech called “The Black Revolution” outlined his revolutionary views further. He said in the speech that: "...So today, when the black man starts reaching out for what America says are his rights, the black man feels that he is within his rights when he becomes the victim of brutality by those who are depriving him of his right to do whatever is necessary to protect himself..." In the same speech, Malcolm X gave a profound statement about what he wanted in April 8, 1964. He said the following words: 

"....All of our people have the same goals, the same objective. That objective is freedom, justice, and equality. All of us want recognition and respect as human beings. We don't want to be integrationists. Nor do we want to be separationists. We want to be human beings. Integration is only a method that is used by some groups to obtain freedom, justice, and equality and respect as human beings. Separation is only a method that is used by other groups to obtain freedom, justice, and equality or human dignity. Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods or tactics or strategy to reach a common objective. We have to keep in mind at all times that we are not fighting for integration, nor we are fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as human beings. We are fighting for the right to live as free human beings in this society. in fact, we are actually fighting for rights that are even greater than civil rights that is human rights..." The Black Revolution speech of April 1964 said that America can have a chance to bring about to have a bloodless revolution. 

The NOI files eviction proceedings against Malcolm X also in early April of 1964. He starts to further travel internationally.

The Hajj

He travels under the name of Malik El-Shabbaz. By April 19, 1964, he traveled in to Mecca to have his famous pilgrimage (which is a requirement of every Muslim to do if one is able). While in Mecca, Malcolm X saw an unique brotherhood among people of different colors that he doesn’t witness in America. He gets a more progressive insight on racial matters. Malcolm X witnessed Muslims of all colors worshiping Allah, working together, and respecting each other as one human family while he was in the Hajj. He believed that the religion of Islam can contribute to end the antagonism that exists among white Americans. Saudi Arabia’s Prince Faisal honored Malcolm X as a guest of the state on April 21-30, 1964. Here are exerpts from Malcolm X's letter from Mecca on April 20, 1964:

"...Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here in this Ancient Holy Land, the home of Abraham, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the Holy Scriptures. For the past week, I have been utterly speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed all around me by people of all colors. I have been blessed to visit the Holy City of Mecca. I have made my seven circuits around the Ka'ba, led by a young Mutawaf named Muhammad. I drank water from the well of the Zam Zam. I ran seven times back and forth between the hills of Mt. Al-Safa and Al-Marwah. I have prayed in the ancient city of Mina, and I have prayed on Mt. Arafat.

There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blonds to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and non-white.

America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered 'white'--but the 'white' attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam. I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all colors together, irrespective of their color. You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to re-arrange much of my thought-patterns previously held, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions. This was not too difficult for me. Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of intelligent search for truth.

During the past eleven days here in the Muslim world, I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and slept in the same bed (or on the same rug)--while praying to the same God--with fellow Muslims, whose eyes were the bluest of blue, whose hair was the blondest of blond, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And in the words and in the actions in the deeds of the 'white' Muslims, I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan, and Ghana.

We were truly all the same (brothers)--because their belief in one God had removed the white from their minds, the white from their behavior, and the white from their attitude.
I could see from this, that perhaps if white Americans could accept the Oneness of God, then perhaps, too, they could accept in reality the Oneness of Man--and cease to measure, and hinder, and harm others in terms of their 'differences' in color..."

The Later Events of Malcolm X's Life

From 1964 to 1965, Malcolm X developed both of his MMI and OAAU organizations. The MMI or the Muslim Mosque Incorporated was purely religious and it was used to express Islamic expression (outside of the framework of the Nation of Islam). The OAAU organization was a political group that accepted black people who were religious, secular, etc. The OAAU stands for the Organization of Afro-American Unity. The OAAU wanted to unify black people globally as a way for the black community to have freedom, justice, and equality. Both the MMI and the OAAU were formed in June of 1964. At the heart of the OAAU was that it was a Black Nationalist organization whose goal was building up the black community, having voter registration drives, set up black enterprises, and allows black people to control their own community. Malcolm X traveled overseas to meet with African heads of state to not only promote pan-African unity. He wanted to gain their support, so America can be tried in international court for America committing human rights abuses against African Americans. He met with Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana and Nasser of Egypt as a way to defend the interests of the Third World. Malcolm X supported the independent revolutions of Africa and the Third World as a means of standing up to the Western, imperial hegemony. As time went on, Malcolm X spoke in more international terms. He said that black people are in an international struggle for freedom in fighting for human rights. Malcolm X opposed imperialism and he criticized capitalism by his own words. We know that some NOI members threatened his life. Harassing phone calls from NOI members were sent to him and to his wife. Also, the FBI and the CIA monitored him worldwide illegally not just in the States. Malcolm X attends the second African Summit Conference in Cairo in August 8, 1964.

On November 24, 1964, Malcolm X returned to the United States of America. During that time, he spent a total of 25 weeks abroad during the year. During this time, LBJ was re-elected and there was the U.S. government's intervention in the Congolese civil war (in trying to make the Congo a pro-Western puppet state). In Malcolm X's December 12, 1964 (in the Audubon) mentioned that he went to talk to African heads of State to get African support for his action of bringing attention to the human rights of then 22 million African Americans. In the speech, he praised President Julius Nyerere as well and he condemned the U.S. involvement in the Congolese civil war. 

Malcolm X's views are furthered articulated when he speaks in Oxford University in England on December 3, 1964. In that speech, he exposes the hypocrisy of American “democracy,” and he endorses self-defense. He said that: “…extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” Malcolm X spoke in December of 1964 to support Fannie Lou Hammer and the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. Malcolm X speaks at the Militant Labor Forum in his “Prospects for Freedom in 1965.” By January of 1965, Malcolm X’s views evolved rapidly. He was ideologically become more progressive and he allowed women to have leadership positions in the OAAU. During the last months of his life, Malcolm X was developing a revolutionary, anti-racist, and anti-capitalist approach in fighting oppression. He planned to send a petition to the United Nations as a way to make America accountable for its human rights violations against black Americans. He not only criticized the Kennedy administration for its response to the civil rights issue. He opposed Lyndon Johnson for his reformist rhetoric, his support of the Western imperial bombings of the Congo, and for his advocacy of the Vietnam War. On February 14, 1965, his house is firebombed. His wife and his daughters also survive the attack. It happened in 2:46 am. He comes to Detroit to speak about it. While addressing an OAAU rally at the Audubon Ballroom, Malcolm X is shot several times and murdered on February 21, 1965.

His Assassination

The revolutionary Malcolm X was killed on February 21, 1965 in Manhattan’s Audubon Ballroom. He wanted to address the Organization of Afro-American Unity. The audience was about 400 people and his wife including his children were present. Benjamin X introduced him. When Malcolm X got on stage, he first said the Islamic greeting “As-salamu alaykum.” Then, one person said, “N____ Get your hand outta my pocket!” Malcolm X and his bodyguard tried to end the disturbance and then a man came forward and shot him once in the chest with a sawed off shotgun. Later, 2 other men charge the stage and fired semi-automatic handguns at Malcolm X. The secret undercover agent Gene Roberts tried to save Malcolm X’s life. Malcolm X’s wife protected her children and she was crying. Malcolm X was pronounced dead at 3:30 pm., which was shortly after arriving at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. One gunman named Talmadge Hayer (who was a member of the Nation of Islam during the time of the assassination) was beaten by the crowd before the police came about. During this day, there were no cops unlike previous events. Witnesses have said that the person who used the shotgun was a large Black man with a navy blue gray trench coat. People have said that the man who shot the shotgun was William Bradley. Talmadge Hayer had said this too and William Bradly recently via his lawyer has denied the allegations. One thing is true though. The assassination of Malcolm X was a conspiracy and the U.S. government illegally monitored Malcolm X’s activity domestically and internationally (via the NYPD, the CIA, and the FBI).

That is a fact and that has been documented by Karl Evanzz’s excellent book entitled, “The Judas Factor” where he writes that John Ali (of the NOI) was an FBI informant. We know that Talmadge Hayer was one gunman. In the beginning, Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X were tried and convicted in March 1966. Later, Hayer issued a confession on 1977 and 1978. His confession has been called the Hayer affidavits. The affidavits said that Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson were not the assassins. Hayer said that the conspiracy involved members of the Nation of Islam’s Newark, New Jersey, Temple Number 25 with people like Wilbur McKinley (who shouted and threw a smoke bomb to create a diversion), William Bradley (he is Al-Mustafa Shabazz today. He denies involvement in the evil assassination of Brother Malcolm X), Leon Davis, and Benjamin Thomas. Leon Davis, according to Hayer fired his pistol at Malcolm X after the diversion. Benjamin Thomas, according to Hayer, was involved in the conspiracy. Also, we can’t omit the role of the FBI, the CIA, and the NYPD had in the oppression of Malcolm X either. The FBI and the CIA illegally surveilled Malcolm X constantly. The CIA monitored Malcolm X’s meetings in Europe and Africa including Asia where he met heads of State (and wanted to go into the Bandung Conference of March 3, 1965. Malcolm X also wanted charges to be brought against America for its overt human rights violations of African Americans at the UN and at the International Court of Justice at The Hague. His petition was scheduled at The Hague on March 12, 1965).

The Judas Factor book documents how the FBI’s William C. Sullivan used BOSSI (or the New York Police Bureau of Special Services) to infiltrate the OAAU via black American agents. BOSSI Director Anthony Ulasewicz supported this action. The author Karl Evanzz used documents from the FBI, books, and documents to show this research. Another author named Baba Zak Kondo also documents that John Ali was most likely a FBI agent. It is no secret that the FBI’s COINTELPRO operation wanted to neutralize Elijah Muhammad, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and any revolutionary or black nationalist leader who could be a black Messiah (in galvanizing the masses of black people in establishing real social change). There were diverse reactions to the assassination of Malcolm X. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. sent a respectful telegram to Sister Betty Shabazz saying that he was sad at the shocking and tragic assassination of Malcolm X.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. mentioned that:

“…While we did not always see eye to eye on methods to solve the race problem, I always had a deep affection for Malcolm and felt that he had a great ability to put his finger on the existence and root of the problem. He was an eloquent spokesman for his point of view and no one can honestly doubt that Malcolm had a great concern for the problems that we face as a race…”

Elijah Muhammad in my view said disrespectful comments about Malcolm X even after he was assassinated. Elijah Muhammad told the annual Savior’s Day convention on February 26 that, “ Malcolm X got just what he preached…We know such ignorant, foolish teachings would bring him to his own end….” Elijah Muhammad was wrong to say that Malcolm X preached violence when he did not. Malcolm X preached self-defense and human freedom. Writer James Baldwin, who had been a friend of Malcolm X's, was in London when he heard the news of the assassination. He responded with indignation towards the reporters interviewing him, shouting, "You did it! It is because of you—the men that created this white supremacy—that this man is dead. You are not guilty, but you did it.... Your mills, your cities, your rape of a continent started all this." Many of the Western news media individuals were disrespectful to Malcolm X also in response to his assassination. The New York Times wrote that Malcolm X was "an extraordinary and twisted man" who "turn[ed] many true gifts to evil purpose" and that his life was "strangely and pitifully wasted". TIME called him "an unashamed demagogue" whose "creed was violence." TIME will also slander Dr. King after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would courageously oppose the Vietnam War (which was done after his Riverside Church speech in April 4, 1967).

Outside of the U.S., and particularly in Africa, the press was sympathetic. The Daily Times of Nigeria wrote that Malcolm X "will have a place in the palace of martyrs." The Ghanaian Times likened him to John Brown and Patrice Lumumba, and counted him among "a host of Africans and Americans who were martyred in freedom's cause". Guangming Daily, published in Beijing, stated that "Malcolm was murdered because he fought for freedom and equal rights", while in Cuba, El Mundo described the assassination as "another racist crime to eradicate by violence the struggle against discrimination.” There must be the release of all government filed at it relates to the assassination of Malcolm X. Decades have past and now is the time for this action to be done. Let's clear up on thing too. Malcolm X was never evolving into a pro-liberal establishment, pro-Democrat person. Malcolm X was a revolutionary and progressive black nationalist leader by the time of his assassination. He was becoming more progressive and more internationalist. Malcolm X criticized capitalism, imperialism, Zionism, and racism in uncompromising terms. There must be an independent investigation of the assassination of Malcolm X.

The Funeral

There was the public viewing of Malcolm X from February 23-26, 1965 at Unity Funeral Home in Harlem. It was attended by from 14,000 to 30,000 mourners. Malcolm X always loved Harlem and Harlem loved Malcolm X as well. The funeral took place on February 27, 1965. There were loudspeakers set up for the overflowing crowd outside of Harlem’s thousand seat Faith Temple of the Church of God in Christ. A local television station carried the service live. There were many people who attended the funeral including members of the civil rights movement. These people were John Lewis, Bayard Rustin (that’s ironic since Rustin was one of his greatest ideological critics), James Forman, James Farmer, Jesse Gray, and Andrew Young. The actor and human rights activist himself Ossie Davis gave a stirring, great, and eloquent who delivered a great eulogy. His eulogy personified the truth that Malcolm X was our shining black prince and he was our living black manhood. Malcolm X was buried at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York. Friends used the gravediggers’ shovels to complete the burial themselves out of respect for Brother Malcolm X.

Books and Research

The following pieces of sources are what I recommend for anyone to gain further understanding about Malcolm X and the black liberation struggle. There are tons of other books, speeches, and other sources that can be of use too, but I show these sources because they carry very special importance. These sources show his life, the life of his family including his friends plus allies. Here are the following sources:

For a long time, many black people have stood up for liberation, truth, and justice. Malcolm X was a strong black man who was honest. He said in public what many human beings said in private. His voice was strong, courageous, and uncompromising. When he was in the NOI and when he left, he always advocated the total liberation of the black community. By traveling all over the world, Malcolm X understood greatly about how the Third World have every right to fight for freedom against Western imperialism. Malcolm X talked in many locations and had a great charisma. He stood up and defended the human rights of black people. One of his greatest gifts was that he developed transformation in his intellectual development. He constantly learned information and Malcolm X became more progressive as time moved on in his life. He loved his wife, his children, and his family. Malcolm X loved Black people. He loved black people so much that he risked his life in speaking the truth without fear. Malcolm X condemned police brutality and predicted the rebellions that would sweep America from 1964 to 1968. The Sunni Muslim Malcolm X accurately stated that we live in a struggle between the oppressor and the oppressed. Malcolm X's words, speeches, and interviews in 1965 have shown some of the most profound commentaries on society in American history. Malcolm X was not a reactionary and he wasn't a member of the liberal establishment.

He was a progressive, black revolutionary. The Malcolm X of 1965 was more revolutionary and more progressive than the Malcolm X of 1960. The anti-capitalist Brother Malcolm X was a hero and a warrior for our people (and for the human race in general). So, we should learn about the past, work in the present, and fight for a better future. We ought to know what time it is if we want to be free. Our time is now. We should work in our communities. We should not only do that. We have to have a racial and class consciousness. We ought to form alliances with people of black African descent globally (as Afro-Brazilians, Afro-French, Afro-French, the Africans, all Afro-Latinos, Afro-Caribbeans, etc. are our Brothers and our Sisters. We are one people). Malcolm X’s family, friends, and colleagues, are still upholding Malcolm X’s principles and his legacy in our generation. He was an independent thinking activist. 2015 is a new opportunity for us to do the work in which Malcolm X has done. We not only need economic and social justice. We deserve total liberation as human beings.

RIP Brother Malcolm X

MLK in Chicago

A little known fact is that MLK advocated economic empowerment of the black community by promoting boycotts against racist companies like Coca Cola and promoting invesment in black owned businesses. Some say it was his move from politics to economics that provoked his assassination apart from his condemnation of the Vietnam war and its profit-making

Hubert Humphrey's Words



Hubert Humphrey 1948 Civil Rights Speech


Friday, December 10, 2010

Tracy's religious words

The link is found in

..there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (I Timothy 2:5-6)

Mark 1:15 ...The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand:
repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted,
that your sins may be blotted out...

"Look and live, my brother live! Look to Jesus now and live!"

...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved... (Acts 16:31)

These are the end times (of a truth they are) and now is the time to get saved. We need the Lord Jesus Christ right now and we need him when we die. May you save yourselves from this untoward, wicked, and perverse generation (ref. Acts 2:40). Look at all the sins in this wicked world. Each man, woman, boy, and girl has contributed their share of sins by lying, stealing, etc. The Son of God came down here to the earth in the form of a man named Jesus. While he was here, the Lord Jesus Christ taught us how to live and left us the record in his word, the Authorized King James Bible. When the Lord Jesus was about 30 years old, he was nailed to a cross where he shed his precious blood to pay for our sins so that we can be forgiven of our sins. But our Lord Jesus Christ did not remain dead--it was not possible that the Son of God should be holden by death (Acts 2:24). God the Father raised Jesus Christ from the dead on the third day and now he is alive for evermore watching over his church and helping us. If you are not saved, you need to be saved. We all need the blood of Jesus to cleanse us from our sins so that we can know God through his word, the holy Bible, and do what is right. The gospel message is simple, (1) Repent of your sins, (2) believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose from the dead, and (3) obey the beautiful, perfect, life-giving words of Jesus (ref. Heb. 5:9). When you get saved by the blood of Jesus and start obeying the word, you get a new kind of life and a new mind. Thieves stop stealing and start living honestly. Liars start telling the truth. Whores start walking uprightly as sanctified, holy women. Drunkards become sober and upright. Behold, all things become new when you live your life by the words of Jesus, praise his blessed and holy name for ever, Amen.
"...if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." II Corinthians 5:17

The man of sin is coming soon and he is going to deceive the whole world and rule it. The Bible teaches that BY PEACE HE SHALL DESTROY MANY (ref. Dan 8:25). People are going to like him, wonder at him, worship him, follow him--including church hypocrites and every unbeliever. I perceive that after the chaos that now looms on the horizon, his solutions will be welcomed by the unsaved. Saved people will understand exactly what is happening and who this man is, but none of the wicked shall understand. The man of sin will be an obvious antichrist to those who are saved. There are many antichrists (I John 2:18), the man of sin will be the king of them all. People who are antichrist deny God the Father and his holy child, Jesus (ref. I John 2:22)). THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST IS ALREADY IN THE WORLD AND GAINING MORE POWER, MOMENTUM, AND PROMINENCE BY THE MOMENT. The antichrist is going to shew who and what he really is when he opens up his mouth in blasphemy and implements his oppressive policies and laws--

Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

Daniel 8:23 ...when the transgressors [sinners, people who do not keep God's commandments] are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

Daniel 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power [his power comes from that old serpent called the Devil and Satan]: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people [he will make war with the saints and overcome them, Rev. 13:7].

Daniel 8:25 And through his policy [his laws and rules and regulations] also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand [evilness and sins will prosper under him, he is the man of sin and sinners will cleave to this evilness]; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many [he acts like a man of peace and people will believe his words about "peace." People worldwide will be deceived, deluded, and fooled--to their everlasting detriment.]: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand [after his time of evil is finished, he will be destroyed notwithstanding all his pronouncements and evil acts].

This wicked, Satanically-powered individual will oppose God and then have the audacity to sit in the temple of God showing himself that he is actually God. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again, but first there must be a falling away and that man of sin be revealed--

II Thessalonians 2:2-4 ...the day of Christ is at hand.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God

Revelation 13 calls this man, "the beast." It teaches that the beast receives his power from the devil himself--the devil is Satan. Some people call him Lucifer. The beast may call himself Christ, but he is Antichrist and he opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God (ref. II Thes 2:4). But he will not stop there. The beast is going to make war against the saints (Rev 13:7) and overcome them physically, but even so, saved people will overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb (who is the Lord Jesus Christ) and by the word of their testimony. Unsaved people will take the mark of the beast in their right hand or in their forehead--ALL PEOPLE THAT TAKE THIS MARK WILL GO TO THE LAKE OF FIRE WHERE THEY WILL BURN FOR ALL OF ETERNITY.

Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and HE SHALL BE TORMENTED WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb [Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God who was slain to pay for our sins. He rose from the dead three days later.]:

Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: AND THEY HAVE NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT, WHO WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND WHOSOEVER RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME.


Revelation 13 teaches that unsaved people worldwide will wonder at the beast and worship him. These people will also worship the dragon who gives him his power (the dragon is that old serpent called the Devil and Satan). The devil gives the beast his power and all the people worldwide will accept that and will actually worship the devil himself. Understand that even the devil can appear as an angel of light (II Cor 11:14). The devil can make the unsaved think he is good and peaceful. All he has to do is put on a costume and say some "kindly" words and put a smile on his face. Those that know the word will immediately hear those "kindly" words as dragon speak because they will say the opposite of what the Authorized Version of the Bible says.

The beast will have a false prophet who will perform miracles--all of the unsaved people of the world will be totally impressed with those lying miracles. The false prophet will perform those miracles in order to deceive people. There is only one group that will not be deceived--saved people, those that believe in Jesus Christ and are obedient to his word. Unsaved people will worship the beast and wonder at his war-making abilities. And if they want to buy and sell in the marketplace and go to the grocery store, the doctor, etc.--they will take his mark in their right hand or in their forehead (Rev. 13:16). The Bible teaches that everyone who takes that mark will go to the lake of fire. If you are unsaved when the man of sin comes, you will be impressed with him too because you will be deceived. Time is winding up and the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back. Anyone who is not saved when he comes back will take their place in the lake of fire. Read more about the beast in Revelation chapter 13 of the Authorized Version of the Bible.

The Bible prophesied that there would be a falling away of the church into error. Many, many church people--including preachers, deacons, "bishops," etc.--are on their way to hell. They do not follow the holy scriptures. They do whatever they want to do and live just like the world. Don't depend on "church" to save you. You need to read the Authorized King James Bible of 1611 for yourself and obey it. People distort the truth and make up all kinds of lies, myths, stories, and legends--you need to get yourself an Authorized King James Bible (with all the thee's and thou's--NOT the new modern versions). If you know God's word for yourself nobody can fool you, and trick you, and deceive you. NO ONE! Jesus left ALL of his commands, instructions, comforts, and warnings for us in the Authorized Bible (not these new, modern counterfeit Bibles like the NIV that delete verses). Satanic attacks against the word of God and our precious Lord Jesus Christ are rapidly increasing as time is winding up and the return of the Lord Jesus Christ draws near. Judgment day is coming. Now is the time to get ready. When the book of life is opened you will want your name there. If it is not, you will go to the lake of fire for all of eternity (Rev. 20:15), that place of everlasting shame and contempt (Dan 12:2) where their worm dieth not and their fire is not quenched (Isa. 66:24, Mark 9:44, 46, 48). Now is the time to prepare.

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels;
and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

Dear Reader, I do not check emails.

If you are not saved, we have many articles here for you. Pray to God to help you to understand his simple message to you--in love he wants to redeem you from the power of Satan and sin. This word is nigh unto you. You can be saved and safe today. You do not have to wait until tomorrow. You do not have to wait for a preacher. God cares for us and he is an ever present help in the time of trouble. If you are not saved, you are in big trouble. God loves the souls that he made--even though we have done wickedly. God so loved this wicked world that he sent his all-powerful Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for the sins of the world. But the Lord Jesus Christ did not remain dead, he rose from the dead on the third day and stands ready right now to save your soul. Believest thou this? Repent of your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ--his death, his burial, his resurrection, his blood that was shed for your sins, his word, his power, his love for you.

Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Are you ready to know God? Are you ready to be saved from your sins? Are you ready to REPENT? That means change. Making a change from the Satanic way of living to following Jesus wherever he may lead you. I can tell you right now that he will lead you OUT of the dance hall club. He will lead you OUT of the crack house. He will lead you OUT of your current life and INTO GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But you have to count the cost. Are you ready to live the life of one of the despised ones? I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING IN THE WORLD! AND I MEAN IT! I began my ascent out of the abyss almost two decades ago and I am still following on to know my Lord! It has been an EXHILARATING journey! I'M ON MY WAY NOW AND, BLESS GOD, HALLELUJAH, I'M ALMOST TWENTY YEARS CLOSER TO SEEING JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PRAISE HIM ALL YE SAINTS! PRAISE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God took me out of the dung heap, blood in my skirt and all, and I'm still standing today. He led me out through his word. Won't you come? Believe the gospel--that Christ died for you, was buried, and rose again the third day. Do you believe it? If you do, tell him so and ask him to save your soul. He will do it. I know he will because he said so--

John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
If you hear God's call, come on to Jesus. The word is nigh thee. It is not far away. It is right in your mouth and in your heart. That is how close it is--

Romans 10:8 ...The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, THOU SHALT BE SAVED.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.


Once you come to Jesus, start seeking the Master's face. The way you seek him is in his word. Get yourself an Authorized (King James) Version of the holy scriptures with all the thee's and thou's and with just PLAIN text NO COMMENTARIES AMONGST THE VERSES OR CROSS-REFERENCES and read it (begin at the gospels--Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John--and fall in love with the Master, Jesus), and obey it. You can download a free and accurate Authorized Bible here. You need the Old Testament and the New Testament. There is information on that link to show you how to bind your Bible. The major publishers of the Authorized King James Bible are now altering the text. Print and bind your own. You can find an overview of the entire Bible here.


And another word for you, precious lamb. This is a warning for you. The hundreds of modern Bible versions are perversions of the scriptures. Many of them have the audacity to say that they are the most accurate. That is a lie. They claim to be easy to understand but I am here to tell you that you can understand the AUTHORIZED King James Bible. My daughter requested straight King James Bible reading when she was two years old and was reading it herself at three years old. You can understand the King James Bible. The Father will help you. Cursor down on this current page for articles on heaven, hell, false churches to avoid, and much more. Do not spend too much time on the internet, tear yourself away from the tv, and don't read blasphemy. Much of what is on this page is for those in sin. I do not want you to read everything that is here, be careful. I wrote these things back when I was confronted with these many errors. Pray, read your Bible, do good, and fall in love with Jesus. Cleave to the scriptures. They will keep you safe. I commit you to the love of God.

Be careful of church people and church buildings. No Roman Catholic "church" can be right because Roman Catholic doctrines are not right. They directly contradict the scriptures. The Roman Catholic religion teaches multitudes to pray to "Mary" instead of in the name of Jesus. It calls its Mary "the Queen of Heaven". In Jeremiah chapters 7 and 44, the Queen of Heaven is revealed to be a devil. The Roman Catholic institution says that our precious Lord Jesus is turned into a little cracker (the eucharist) when the priest speaks certain words at the "mass". This is a very great blasphemy. Many Catholics possess and pray to little statue idols that they call "saints" when the Bible says do not make unto thyself any graven image (Exodus 20:4). They light candles for the dead, bow before relics (e.g., a dead man's finger) and believe in a fictional purgatory that they try to pay their way out of--more money for the coffers of the "church". Their leaders have deceived them and are making merchandise of them. The love of money is the root of all evil. There are many heresies that Catholics are taught to believe but if they will only decide that the word of God is true, they can come out of these deceptions in an instant. If you are a former Roman Catholic, you are familiar with the Romish rituals. You must never return to those unclean things. Get rid of all traces of Romanism in your life-- including the rosary which is used for what our Lord Jesus Christ called, "vain repetition" (Matthew 6:7).

But I would not have you ignorant. The Roman Catholic institution is not the only apostate church--but she does have a special status. She is the mother of them all--Revelation 17:5 calls her MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. The Bible also calls her the great whore (Rev 17:1; 19:2). As a whore, she has MANY children. And since she is a whore, you do not know who the fathers are of these various bastard children ("bastard" is a Bible word e.g. Heb 12:8). You just see the hordes of false churches with their hierarchal systems. Instead of a pope they have a superstar pastor at the top with all kinds of departments below him (some churches even have investment counsellors). They meet in fancy church buildings and offer endless programs and activities to keep their members busy and entertained. When we look closely at these churches we find that heresies abound across the board--whether Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, Greek Orthodox, "Jehovah's" Witness, Calvinist, et al. Be ware, dear one, be ware. Do not jump at the chance to be called by any other name but what the Bible calls you--Christian, saint, disciple, etc. Calvin was not crucified for me. I would never call myself a Calvinist, a Baptist or any such thing. Do not follow man and his traditions. Follow the scriptures.

I know that I am putting a lot of information on you here, but you must be warned. You will understand in time. The Bible says that there will be a great falling away of the church at the end of time before Jesus comes back. We have already entered this falling away. The visible church has fallen away from the scriptures and many who call themselves Christians are actually unwitting agents of the spirit of antichrist as they teach their false doctrines to other people. Perilous times have come, but fear not, little one, for greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world (ref. I John 4:4). Your safety is in reading the word of God so that you can know the truth for yourself--and the truth shall make you free. The Lord may be preparing someone right now to hold on to your hand. But even then, you will examine that person and their teachings based on the word of God--that includes me and my writings on this website. However things work out for you, the Lord Jesus will personally be there with you until the end of the world (Matthew 28:20). Goodbye for now, dear one.

For disciples-- Read your Authorized King James Bible diligently and obey it. Ask God to show you the old paths (Jeremiah 6:16)--the old way of living and worshipping God. Look for the old ways--Father working, Mother cooking, cleaning and caring for the children. You will find rest for your soul and a whole new world will be opened to you. You will be changed at your root. Let the hearts of the fathers be turned to the children and the hearts of the children be turned to their fathers. Sanctified parents, go retrieve your children from the school system and the playground and teach them and train them yourself at home.

Print out and bind your own Authorized King James Bibles, Pure Cambridge Edition. Heathens have been tampering with the Authorized King James Bible, incorporating alterations and adding all kinds of abomnations (e.g., "study aids," commentaries, illustrations, cartoon pictures, geneaological record sheets, etc.) to the text. Go here for an excellent download and more information.

In America, we have almost completely lost our manhood and womanhood. Our deceptions are great but the word of God will deliver us if carefully applied to our lives. God made man to rule the world. Man was destined for greatness. May the men reading this understand that they are the image and glory of God. Repent of your sins, hide the word of God in your heart and rise to who you were made to be. Get out of debt (including your house note/mortgage) for the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7). America is a nation of servant-serfs and we are about to pay an even greater price than we already have for our carelessness and gullibility.

Woman, clean your house and teach your children at home from the Authorized (King James) Version of the holy scriptures. That book will give you the foundations/rudiments of everything in all of creation and every subject to be studied--Language Arts, Geography, Counting & Mathematics (e.g., Geometry), History, Botany, Law, Economics, Science (e.g., Chemistry)--everything. Embrace Genesis 1:1 - 2:7 as your outline--read it to your child regularly until you both have a good understanding of it. By God's grace and almighty power, babies can (as a matter of course) read while they are still in diapers. Two year olds can praise God and his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Three year olds can read the Authorized Version of the scriptures. Four year olds can learn cursive writing. Five year olds can expound the word of God. Little children can exercise Biblical discernment and be wise. They can choose righteousness because they can see and feel its excellencies for themselves. I'm not perfect, but can't we at least try to rise up and set our expectations higher as we lift up God's word in the education of our children? Let us turn our hearts back towards home instead of constantly on the distant mission field.

WARNING TO CHRISTIANS-- The American school system (public, private, and "Christian") is dangerous. Combine this with the television and you will understand why the children are turning out deficient and full of problems--physical, mental, and spiritual. There are reasons the school system is failing and turning out sots (dull heads), rebels, whoremongers, and freaks--it is by design. Americans were once a strong, independent, rugged, innovative, productive, freedom-loving people. But now look, we are at the bottom of the barrel dependent on someone else for every morsel of food that we eat--let the grocery stores close down and see what happens across this land. Through "progressive" education (progressing towards what?) we have been turned inside out. Americans were in an uproar when the progressives first tried to implement compulsory schooling at the turn of the twentieth century. But now look. We kick our children out the door at five years old (and earlier if Mother works) into "kindergarten". Christians did not belong in the school system in the first place (Deu 6:6-9)--may the true disciples bail out of that sinking ship and exchange it for a sanctified homeschool under a Biblical Scholarship.

Beware to ALL Christian peoples all over the whole world on every continent and on every island! That includes those that live on houseboats! You aspire to the American model in so many ways--lifestyle, education, clothing styles, church organization and doctrines, maybe even a small family size, etc.--I urge you to repent of this aspiration. We Americans can quickly quench the Spirit with our tracts, suits and ties, and programs. You do not have to imitate us nor should you. Do not rush out to our seminaries and colleges. We've bought the lie that college degrees are important. Our Lord never learned letters (John 7:15). In the American church, we've replaced the anointing with Bible college. You do not have to go to Bible college to know God or to know how to conduct a proper church meeting (ref. I Cor 14:26). Beware of our American missionaries, their teachings, their scripture translations, and the technologies they may want to introduce to "increase productivity" in your village. If they bring you seeds, ask questions about those seeds. Better yet, only use your own native food and seeds. Even the seeds in America are being corrupted through false science. Americans are oblivious as to what is happening. If you homeschool don't blindly follow our various "Christian" homeschool curricula for they are just warmed-over worldly scholarship sprinkled with a few Bible verses! The American system is death! This warning comes from one with a college degree (I destroyed that piece of paper)! Don't give up your ox for a tractor machine! Don't give up the old ways! Keep your dairy goat and your hens. Go back in time and figure out how your forefathers did things! Get your hand tools and live a real and simple life--it is inexpensive and your children will love it. The American model is a trap!

And if you watch that filthy trance medium called tv, shame on you! You cannot have a sanctified home if you are not sanctified! Are you a Christian or not? Come out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the UNCLEAN thing; and I will receive you (II Cor 6:17). The designer clothes, the mortgage on the big house, the credit cards, the Kraft grocery store food, endless sweets (we are addicted to sugar), fast food, fancy restaurants, resorts, amusements, cable tv, car notes, video games, spa memberships, ad nauseum--if we had listened to the scriptures, Christians would not have gotten entangled! They would have remained separate from this net. If the preachers had preached the word and lived right, they would have warned us. But no, by and large, they were blind and ignorant. They were dumb dogs that could not bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. They were greedy dogs which could never have enough, and they were shepherds that could not understand: they all looked to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter (ref. Is 56:10-11). Today, instead of warning us and giving us good teaching and instruction to get out of this calamity, they have their game nights, plays, "watermelon Sundays", morning service, evening service, mid-week service, men's Bible study, women's Bible study, youth group meetings, special services, retreats, "revivals", etc. And a great number of these false teachers have turned the church building into a brothel! They join in marriage divorced persons who have living spouses--in direct contradiction to the scriptures (Matthew 5:31-32, Matt 19:9, fornication defined as in Deu 22:14, 20). "Christians" are laying up in the bed naked committing adultery with people who are not their spouses! And then when they have children of whoredom, the preacher smiles and holds a "baby dedication" during the church service!

Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Many of these ungodly men are adulterers themselves. One may have a living wife and is now shacking up with a concubine that he calls "wife". For another, maybe his woman has a husband roaming the earth while she is in the bed with the preacher! Sometimes both the preacher and his wife have spouses! Some of these ungodly shepherds take their churches to the movie theatre and broadway plays! And they are so comatose that they can't even tell us to rest on the seventh day of the week like God did! This is no plug for that CULT the Seventh Day Adventists started by FALSE prophetess Ellen White! This is a call for the restoration of the sabbath day in the lives of Christians, a gift from God made for man (Mark 2:27). I call it my weekly vacation! The sabbath is the day that God rested from his labours, after he finished creating heaven and earth. It is the seventh day. In Genesis 2:3, God specifically blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. The sabbath will NEVER, EVER EVER be on the first day of the week! Sunday is not the sabbath. It never was, never could be, and never will be the sabbath (this does not mean go to that cult the Seventh Day Adventists). Our IGNORANCE of the scriptures (especially the Old Testament) has us going along with the dumb dogs for years on end! Our LEADERS cause us to err! They preach on the latest news and tv shows but can't tell me how to rest! Just how to go to "church" four or five times a week! God had to find me down here and tell me the truth! REMEMBER the sabbath day to keep it HOLY (Ex 20:8)! Not buying and selling like a disobedient Israel! Turn away thy foot from the sabbath doing THY pleasure on GOD'S holy day (ref. Isaiah 58:13-14)! Let God slough this putrifying fleshly mess off of us! And if your preacher is not right, leave his church building! Don't go back. We ARE the church. Leaving a building is not leaving the church.

The American situation is dire and serious as was powerfully foretold by Samuel Breese Morse in 1835 (you may want to skip down to page 11.) and William Hogan in 1854, but the answer is very simple. Pray and ask God to help you return to the old paths. If you know how to fast, do that too. The old paths are only a step away. Get your children out of the school system and teach them yourself. Parents have been doing that for millenia with no help from the government. With God's word as your textbook, you can have a sanctified homeschool that comes behind NO worldly school. In fact, as you bask in the blessing and richness of a Biblical Scholarship, you and your scholar will see how foolish, inane, criminal, and irrelevant the world's schools are. Equipped with the outline of Genesis 1:1-2:7 (taking heed to God's classifications), the scriptures will take the anointed teacher on a thrilling exploration of all things in heaven and in earth and give him the way to neatly classify all things (of a truth, only the Authorized (King James) Version will work with this). The outline of Genesis 1:1-2:7 can be taught to a four year old. This passage of scripture actually prepares your (and your child's) mental filing cabinet to be able to automatically classify all things. This is a critical need in a world inundated with ever-increasing amounts of new information and technologies. You and your scholar will not be overwhelmed by this incessant flow of information--instead you will be able to instantly classify it. And not only that, you will be able to tell whether it is good or evil... In a sanctified home, you don't watch tv and you don't look on the internet for some new news on the latest blasphemies-you ignore what the world is doing (my own child cannot even get on this website without special permission--I use it only as a reference tool, and that is rare indeed. This website is for those who are still trapped in filth so they can escape and be free.), you have your own kind of life independent from their filthy traps and snares. You live a holy, sanctified life lived simply and without much fanfare as you read your Authorized King James Bible and live in the simplicity that is found in Christ Jesus (ref. II Cor 1:12; 11:3). Meanwhile you will find that your school is above and not beneath any worldly school. You will see that it is the head and not the tail. That your sanctified school inculcates sound learning, original thought, independent thinking, joy, worship, and much excitement. You will have a scholar who, with perfect understanding, sees the folly and madness of the world, and yet, at the same time, learns that we all need Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.

...Old friends and true disciples, check out the deception series which has critical end times teachings--and don't forget THE MOTHER. King James had plenty to say about her.

At this hour, I find that I am full of warnings. Even unbelievers can feel the danger--more so than professed Christians. Islam is violently taking over the world--and the world's governments (including the United States) are allowing it to do so (don't forget the Mother). It is time to watch unto prayer. It is time to read Matthew 24 and to understand all the signs. It is time to explain Matthew 24, once again, to our children so that they understand these times and have their courage and have all these abominations in the proper perspective. THERE IS NO "PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE". That is another lie taught by the dumb dogs.

The man of sin is coming (ref. II Thes. 2:3). And by policy he shall cause craft to prosper (ref. Dan. 8:25). Under the guise of diversity/multiculturalism/tolerance room is made for any antichristian force (Roman Catholic, Islamic, sodomite, etc.) to (1) rise up to the surface of society from the underground, (2) be confirmed that their error is legitimate, and (3) demand and receive special protective status for their antichrist stance. Anyone who challenges the validity of their belief system is criminalized (e.g., labelled "anti-Catholic," or "anti-Semitic"). Anyone who ignores them or does not acknowledge their special status is criminalized--including businesses. One Michigan business had to pay a $5,000 fine for not printing up sodomite materials. Ordinary people are pressured and harassed--upon penalty of fine or jail--to put their beliefs to the side and to quietly accept and minister to what they do not agree with.

The mainstream of American society has held certain beliefs that have recently been criminalized--for instance, Americans have always been against sodomy. It was once outlawed in all 50 states. Now look around. They are parading in the streets. Early Americans knew the wiles of the papacy--Catholics could not be politicians in the early days. Now look. Say anything about Rome's history and you are called, "Anti-Catholic." Those that do not accept all antichrist groups are berated, fired, sued, and/or jailed for breaking the law of "tolerance". This makes for a fearful American population because nobody wants to be sued or be fired. The loss of a job is a frightening prospect for most people because without a job we have no money, no home, no food, no water, no flushable toilet. Most people are packed into cities and suburbs like rats with rent, mortgages, property taxes, and grocery expenses (they do not know how to grow or forage for their own food)--they need money. People are scared and frightened into silence by (1) the threat of being called, "anti-Catholic," "anti-Semite," or part of a "hate group" even though they hate no one and by (2) the threat of discrimination laws that are bellowed out over and over again by a small pack of wild dogs consisting of groups like the ACLU, officials, academics, writers, reporters, educators, social engineers/change agents, activists, clerics, Congressmen, etc. and by (3) the threat of losing their jobs--fearful business owners try to adhere to ridiculous regulations requiring them to enforce "anti-discrimination" laws. These businesses will fire anybody who does not keep quiet during diversity/sodomite training. Popish persons, sodomites, witches, the ACLU, and others cry out for tolerance and peace, but war is in their heart--

Psalms 55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
And remember this--no matter what abomination you are looking at, never forget the Mother and her teaching Jesuits. There is a fountain from whence all these evils spring. There is only one conspiracy and one conspirator. The Bible calls her MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Notice she is THE MOTHER.

Today, "tolerance" is ostensibly about peace, but it is actually about war. People who proclaim it are amongst the most intolerant people that you can find on the face of the earth. They censor anything that they do not want to hear. They are totally intolerant of John 14:6. And this hatred that they possess under the mask of "tolerance" will escalate into an all out war against the saints (ref. Rev. 13:7). All the fake ministry claims of "taking the world for Christ" are just that--fake. It is not going to happen. The ball is rolling and the coming of the Lord draweth nigh; but first we have to go through some deep waters. Prepare yourself, fellowsoldier.

The Bible teaches that somebody, a man, is coming in peace, but he is bent on destruction (ref. Dan. 8:25)...

In this short, illustrated book, see how we Americans willingly gave up the farm and the homestead for the suburbs and the city. How we gave up freedom for bondage. How we went from self-sustaining homesteads to monoculture and agribusiness where a few farmers feed the whole world! Can you see why farmers grab on to any deceptive scientific discovery that might increase their productivity? Farmers are not using the power of dung, they are using synthetics to fertilize thereby making the ground sterile (earthworms can't live off of that dead, inorganic stuff) and poisoning the crops. And that is not enough for false science. They have farmers spraying poison all over the crops and fields. Birds die. Farm workers are getting sick. Consumers eat this food. And that is still not enough. Now they have to place genetically modified organisms (GMOs) inside the plant itself so that THE PLANT IS A GMO. That corn you are eating may very well have a patent on it--it is CONSIDERED A NEW CREATURE. Genetically, they are even taking away the mothering instinct in chickens. They do not want you to raise your own. When some honest scientists have revealed that GMO food is dangerous their heads have rolled. Is bottled water really 100% spring water? See this video. And what happens to all those plastic bottles and the ubiquitous plastic wraps and bowls and other products? In gyres in the ocean, floating plastic pieces can outnumber krill 10:1 and plankton 6:1. See this video. How are the animals supposed to eat? Their guts are filling up with plastic! It does not break down. I recoil from plastic and what plastic I do get from packaging, I reuse it where practicable and collect it for recycling. On another note, have you ever wondered how the microwave heats when there is no fire in it? One day I thought about it and learned how microwaving causes physiological changes to the blood. That food in the grocery store just looks good--some of it, like margarine--even animals will not eat. After a spreadable margarine product turned into what looked and smelled car oil (it burned on my stove), I stopped using it. By God's appointment I soon found out that margarine is a synthetic food...White flour has to be "enriched" because the most nutritious part of it, the germ of the seed, has been ripped out so that it will have a longer shelf life. Manufacturers pour lab "nutrients" into the flour and call it "enriched" instead of "stripped". For my part, we have been learning to grow and forage for our own food, and it has been a liberating experience. The woods is the future of the saints. Revelation 13 drove me to understand the world around me. And in the process of this fascinating exploration, we have found a different sort of life...

The world situation is heavy and oppressive and it is only growing worse by the moment. It is almost time for the beast to appear (see Rev. 13). If you belong to God through his Son Jesus Christ, turn your morning prayer into a morning oblation (an offering of your time and yourself and your prayers). Sacrifice a little sleep and get up earlier than usual so that you have some uninterrupted time to spend with God during this emergency situation. I like to present myself in the stillness and quietness of darkness. Think about the main things on your mind as you rise and go to the place of prayer. Tell God what you know, what you need, what your concerns are, pray for his church, pray for the unsaved, pray that evil be hindered and righteousness be loosed, rehearse your God-given dreams and visions before him, magnify him, and pray to him in the name of his holy child, Jesus. If you do this, read your Bible, obey it, and learn how to fast, God will strengthen you and guide you through this gauntlet. He will magnify himself and his power very greatly in your eyes. Meanwhile, your enemies will be greatly abased in your eyes and appear as they are--deceived and deceiving agents of the devil. I find that during the morning oblation I go from scared to bold. The morning oblation is not a one time oblation, it is a daily offering. We need strength and anointing everyday. The oppressed, the free, the saved, and the unsaved of this earth need our prayers everyday. Males and females need our prayers. Young and old need our prayers. Black and white and all other colors of people need our prayers. I ask God to send forth anointed labourers, to save people, and to secure and establish them in the faith of Jesus Christ helping them to endure to the end. The morning oblation is not a dried up time, it is rich. The Father will help his children to pray and express themselves. I like to take a little time and think about what I want to say before I begin to pray. God will help you to praise him and magnify him and his word. In my experience, he will answer you out of your own mouth and even during the remainder of the day as you go about your business. A pressure release occurs during the morning oblation. If you don't know how to fast, read the scriptures, pray, and start small--maybe going without a single meal. But I will warn you, it is better NOT to vow a vow unto God than to vow and not pay. In Matthew 9:15, the Lord Jesus said that his disciples would fast. He also revealed that certain spiritual victories are only achieved through fasting and prayer (Matt 17:21, Mark 9:29).

Apology-- On this website, there were times that I knowingly did not use proper English grammar. Please forgive me for this transgression. Please forgive me for all my transgressions. Read your Bible and judge what you read based on the word.

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
I Thessalonians 5:21
