Over $100,000 in farm subsidies between 2008 and 2011 went a charity arm of the Nation of Islam, according to a new report from a watchdog group.
The group, Open the Books, traces the money to the Three Year Economic Savings Program, a NOI charity whose headquarters are listed at Louis Farrakhan’s home address. According to the NOI website, contributions from the charity were used to purchase farmland in Georgia now known as Muhammad Farms. “In 1995 we planted and harvested 76.3 acres of land, including watermelons, cantaloupes, sweet corn, snap beans, okra, yellow squash, zucchini, butternut squash, peas and greens,” the site says.
The Three Year Economic Savings Program is listed as “Not in Good Standing” on the Illinois Secretary of State’s website. Over the three-year period, it received $103,529 in 19 payments ranging from about $3,000 to nearly $28,000. The Three Year Economic Savings Program was also granted a $26,367 commodity loan in the final months of George W. Bush’s presidency.
The report, “Farm Subsidies and the Big Dogs,” is based on data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as well as information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.
Knowledge Creates Power
FireAndreaMitchell.com The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go. So why isn’t this news worthy? Is it because it would embarrass those anti second amendment nuts who brag about Chicago’s tough gun laws? Is it because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities? Or is it because the corrupt media doesn’t want to show Chicago in a bad light?
We are at war. We, being the populations of Western nations whose leaders work overtime to sell us out to borderless countries and One World Government.
A big part of any war is propaganda. In World War II we had Tokyo Rose. Today we have digital activists and “Sandmonkey”, a “citizen journalist” whose reports from the frontline in Egypt were bought hook-line and sinker by many in the American mainstream media.

Sen. Barack Obama with Rev. Jeremiah Wright
JERUSALEM – As pressure mounts on the White House to intervene to stop Moammar Gadhafi’s bloody crackdown in Libya, many commentators have been wondering why Barack Obama has been cautious in his criticism of the dictator after the U.S. president so fervently supported the removal from office of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak of Egypt.
But Gadhafi has been tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s spiritual adviser for more than 23 years.
The Libyan dictator also has financed and strongly supported the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. Obama has ties to Farrakhan and his controversial group.
So far, White House officials have called for an end to the violence but have seemingly ruled out any unilateral action in Libya. Despite Gadhafi’s reported ordering of massacres that reportedly have killed hundreds of civilians in recent days, Obama hasn’t called on Gadhafi to leave office.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s trip to New York City reportedly expanded beyond meeting with foreign dignitaries at the United Nations. According to the New York Post, the Iranian president’s six-night stay also included a “secret sit-down” with militant Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan and members of the New Black Panther Party:
The Obama File
Fox News is reporting that Obama’s neighbor and Nation of Islam (NoI) Minister, Louis Farrakhan, boasting of his divine stature, predicted trouble ahead for Barack Obama and urged him to do more to improve the lives of blacks and the downtrodden.
The 76-year-old racist said the “white right” was conspiring to make Obama a one-termer, and pointed to his stalled efforts to introduce health care legislation as proof. He said those opponents and lobbyists were trapping him into a future war with Iran that could lead to mass destruction.
Farrakhan has vigorously supported Obama for years, and that was even as Obama distanced himself from NoI for Farrakhan’s past comments that many considered anti-Semitic — supporters say Farrakhan’s words are often taken out of context.
Farrakhan continued his praise of Obama, and said the he was manipulated into disavowing Farrakhan.
He would not say if he and Obama had ever met on the issue of ObamaCare, saying, “They all want to know did I ever meet with him and what did I say or what he say,” Farrakhan said in the speech. “I ain’t going there.”
