Greetings Coalition Family!


Sometime after WWII, a secret meeting was held between the european led nations, Britain, Russia, the Germany’s South Africa, France Italy, Spain and the special invited guests were the jewish refugees from the european tyrannies.

Among the topics that had to be dealt with were:

  • How to prevent another Hitler

  • A nuclear threat agreement

  • Establishing a jewish state

  • Neutralizing any attempt of a third world country to gain economic independence

  • The anesthetizing of the general populace

  • The containment of the emerging Afrikan nations.

It was agreed that the european nations above all else would be inter-dependent, and eventually form a common economy. Russia would be allowed to annex the countries that Germany had invaded and form a world power to counter balance that of Britain and the united states in exchange for selling Alaska to the u.s.. It was agreed that no european country would declare war on another as long as the pact was in existence.

There would be a united effort to covertly support, the jewish takeover of the Holy Land and establish a european stronghold in the new “Middle East”.

Whenever there was unrest or dissatisfaction in the “free world” Russia and its’ allies were to pose a threat so as to take the focus off the homegrown criminal governments, and place it on the advance of the “Red Menace”, until such time as there were substantial legitimate threats from dark nations that all could unite against. Meanwhile the capitalists would develop more and more propaganda machines, and entertainment medias to divert the people’s attention from what was actually being done to them. The superstar concept was born; Hollywood would become a household name. Political leaders would become celebrities, and celebrities would become government officials until such time you wouldn’t be able to tell the actors from the activists. Anyone remember Nikita Kruchev banging on his table at the U.N. shouting, “We will bury you!” It seems now that maybe he was addressing one of those legendary NYC cockroaches.

Television would be the advent of the “pretty people”, and the general population would only accept information from beautiful wholesome “dyed-in-the-wool” american newscasters.

Since de-colonialization of Afrika was inevitable, the allies, where possible, would secretly select the new leaders, get them to borrow loads of money, which they were sure to misappropriate, and devalue the exports. Instead of shiploads of food, there would be shiploads of guns. The age-old practice of divide and conquer would be very effective when used on the crooked handpicked leaders. In the end, Afrika would be as dependent upon the colonialists as they were the century before.

The foregoing is not based on known facts, but is the product of “Monday Morning Quarterbacking” and logical conjecture based on an intimate knowledge of the forces involved. Its purpose is to make you think and ask questions, such as:

  • Why did the Capitalist/Communist conflict never elevate beyond grand posturing?

  • Why, when the Soviet people were starving, did the united states send shiploads of food to Russia? Why didn’t they send the same aid to China, Cuba?

  • Why would Russia sell Alaska to its enemy? Alaska is supposedly rich in gold and oil, and although most atlases are designed to conceal the fact, Alaska is the perfect launching point for a nuclear strike at what was once the U.S.S.R. Would you sell such a property to someone who is really your enemy?

  • Why was Japan and not Germany the target of the first nuclear bomb, since both countries had been neutralized at the time? (To refute the usual excuses: Japan’s famed Cherry Blossom squadron had been reduced to sending raw untested pilots in recycled planes on the final missions, and they rarely reached their targets. Germany had surrendered and Japan no longer had their naval support, the end was imminent and unavoidable.

  • Why has Russia not been called upon to repay the post-war loans targeted for rebuilding their country?

  • Is it really Pepsi and fast food that have made fast friends of the Russians?

  • If Vietnam was such a threat to Democracy, why are they now “our” friends? What does this say to the families and veterans who sacrificed so much in that conflict? Why didn’t the u.s. consider using the “BOMB” on north Vietnam? (Hint: What country shares its southern border with North Vietnam?)

  • Why do you have to be a member of OPEC to be safe from u.s. invasion if you live in the “Middle East”?

  • Why invade Iraq to eliminate “weapons of mass destruction”, but negotiate with North Korea? (See “hint” above)

  • Why, since South Africa has been liberated, is 90% of the inhabitable land still in the hands of the “Afrikaners”?

  • Why is it that the political leaders the u.s. backs in Afrikan conflicts are always the ‘wrong’ ones?

  • Why did the “AID’s epidemic” begin in South Afrika? (If my brothers there had a yen for monkey-booty, what would have taken them 5,000 years to act upon it?) On the other hand, Dr. Christian Barnhart needed to develop a means of making the body’s immune system NOT reject the foreign heart replacements he was experimenting with. AIDs breaks down the body’s resistance to foreign invasion. Can you say “Tuskegee Experiment”?

  • Why is it that anytime the subject of a failing u.s. economy becomes big news, is there another “threat to our way of life” discovered? Why are they now always dark-skinned?

Does this inspire you to ask questions of your own? I sincerely hope so, but don’t look for the answers on the 11 o’clock news.

Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger

New hotline helps families find free summer meals for kids

   Starting this week, families in Philadelphia can call a toll-free hotline to find nearby locations that offer free summer meals for children. Operated by the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, the hotline is 1-855-252-MEAL (6325). Families can also text “MEAL” to 84700

to receive a call back.
   “During the regular school year, tens of thousands of low-income students rely on free or reduced-price meals at school,” said Carey Morgan, Coalition Executive Director.
   “But when school is out and they’re not getting that food, they face higher risks of hunger and malnutrition. The Philly Summer Meals Hotline will help families fill that void, by referring them to nearby recreation centers, parks, churches and community organizations that offer free meals to kids and teens.”
   Last year, more than 119,000 children in Pennsylvania received summer meals. But that’s less than one-fourth of the 553,000 low-income children who received free or reduced-priced lunch during the regular school year—a sign that many low-income children who need summer meals aren’t getting them, according to a recent report from the Food Research and Action Center. Recent budget cuts have also forced the School District of Philadelphia to reduce the number of summer programs it offers, meaning fewer students will be eating free meals in summer school this year.
   Despite the change, “there are still nearly 1,000 sites serving free summer meals in Philadelphia, so there’s no reason any child should go hungry this summer,” Morgan said.
   Free summer meals are available to children age 18 and under. There is no registration or income requirement at most sites.
  Visit for more information..

Text “MEAL” to 84700 to receive a call back from the coalition.

The Evolution of the Soul:

Peace Profound is a state of mind, body, and spirit, which is for the good of everyone. Therefore when we consider the heart and what makes it beat, we find Light, Life and Love are the joys to meet. Concentration, contemplation, meditation and prayer are our vehicles to see in our hearts and minds the balance and harmony found within the very breath of life.

The trees give off oxygen, the humans and animals give off carbon dioxide, as Mother Nature demonstrates, in silence, the essence of peace on earth.

As the heart beats, in its' particular silence we sense the connection, a oneness, if you will, with the ALL of creation and existence. This connection is known to some of us as the Spirit. And each of us is confronted with the choice to follow this Spirit of harmony. The other spirit is one of destruction, and also moves within the silence. It helps tremendously when we remember that destruction really wants to be led to harmony, rather than to lead someone to chaos, because it is the evolution of the soul; a return to our original state of purity. Therefore we see various degrees of harmony through the choices we individuals make in our daily lives. Is "Free Will" free?


Imagine a petition to the God of your heart for freedom from disease; at that moment the clouds move; the sun shines down in a beacon of light,upon your being. Imagine The Ancient Sophia; the marriage between your inner self and your outer self. You meet your true soul mate.


There is a place where there is Peace for everyone. To be in and at this place depends on the decision to be there, or be somewhere else in the thinking process. Recognition of energy here and other places represents the possibilities for balance and harmony. Therefore, studying the nature and qualities of the energies makes a significant difference in bringing on the harmonium. As this life is experienced, direction in accord with the greater light is ultimately beneficial for all.


Let us work for the living and eat from the tree of life in all that we think, say, and do. Let us go to the valley of our consciousness to concentrate, contemplate, meditate, and pray, so that we make harmonious choices and use our stumbling blocks as stepping stones to the sacred mountain of our soul's consciousness. Let it be said that our actions and experience produce agents of divinity.

The 10 easiest ways to green your home

Being earth-friendly doesn't require going solar or growing all your own food. There are plenty of easy ways to make a big difference.

By Ann Archer of MSN Real Estate

When it comes to the environment, being a good global citizen starts at your doorstep. From recycling to using alternative cleaning materials, minor changes at home can add up to real benefits for the planet, not to mention your own health and happiness.

It may be a cliché, but the best way to be Earth-friendly is to cut down on what you consume and recycle whenever you can. The U.S. generates about 208 million tons of municipal solid waste a year, according to the National Institutes of Health. That's more than 4 pounds per person per day. Every little bit helps; recycling just one glass bottle saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours.

Here are 10 more easy ways to green your home:

1. Green up your appliances. Getting rid of that old refrigerator in the garage could save you as much as $150 a year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Appliance use comprises about 18% of a typical home’s total energy bill, with the fridge being one of the biggest energy hogs. If any of your appliances is more than 10 years old, the EPA suggests replacing them with energy-efficient models that bear their "Energy Star" logo. Energy Star-qualified appliances use 10%-50% less energy and water than standard models. According to the Energy Star site, if just one in 10 homes used energy-efficient appliances, it would be equivalent to planting 1.7 million new acres of trees.

Also, consider what you put in that energy-efficient refrigerator. Pesticides, transportation and packaging are all things to consider when stocking up. Buying local cuts down on the fossil fuels burned to get the food to you while organic foods are produced without potentially harmful pesticides and fertilizers.

2. Watch the temp. Almost half a home's energy consumption is due to heating and cooling.

  • Turn down the thermostat in cold weather and keep it higher in warm weather. Each degree below 68°F (20°C) during colder weather saves 3%-5% more heating energy, while keeping your thermostat at 78°F in warmer weather will save you energy and money. A programmable thermostat will make these temperature changes for you automatically.

  • Clean your furnace's air filter monthly during heavy usage.

  • Consider a new furnace. Today's furnaces are about 25% more efficient than they were in the 1980s. (And don't forget to check out furnaces carrying the Energy Star label.)

  • To keep your cool in warmer weather, shade your east and west windows and delay heat-generating activities such as dishwashing until evening.

  • Use ceiling fans instead of air conditioners. Light clothing in summer is typically comfortable between 72°F and 78°F. But moving air feels cooler, so a slow-moving fan easily can extend the comfort range to 82°F, according to "Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings" by Alex Wilson.

3. Save water. The Web site "Water — Use it Wisely," created by a group of Arizona cities, lists 100 simple ways to save water. We’ll share just a few here:

  • Put an aerator on all household faucets and cut your annual water consumption by 50%.

  • Install a low-flow toilet. They use only 1.6 gallons per flush, compared to 3.5 gallons per flush for pre-1994 models. If you have an older model, adjust your float valve to admit less water into the toilet's tank.

Of course, you don't need products to save water — behavioral changes also add up quickly: using a broom instead of the garden hose to clean your driveway can save 80 gallons of water and turning the water off when you brush your teeth will save 4.5 gallons each time.

4. Clean green. Stop buying household cleaners that are potentially toxic to both you and the environment. In his book, "The Safe Shopper's Bible," David Steinman suggests reading labels for specific, eco-friendly ingredients that also perform effectively. These include grain alcohol instead of toxic butyl cellosolve, commonly found in carpet cleaner and some window cleaners as a solvent; coconut or other plant oils rather than petroleum in detergents; and plant-oil disinfectants such as eucalyptus, rosemary or sage rather than triclosan, an antifungal agent found in soaps and deodorant. Or, skip buying altogether and make your own cleaning products. Use simple ingredients such as plain soap, water, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), vinegar, washing soda (sodium carbonate), lemon juice and borax and save money at the same time. Check out these books by Annie Bertold-Bond for cleaning recipes: "Clean and Green" and "Better Basics for the Home."

5. Let there be energy-efficient light. Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs) use 66% less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and last up to 10 times longer. Replacing a 100-watt incandescent bulb with a 32-watt CFL can save $30 in energy costs over the life of the bulb.

6. Save a tree, use less paper.  You can buy "tree-free" 100% post-consumer recycled paper for everything from greeting cards to toilet paper. Paper with a high post-consumer waste content uses less virgin pulp and keeps more waste paper out of landfills.

Other tips:

  • Remove yourself from junk mail lists. Each person will receive almost 560 pieces of junk mail this year, which adds up nationally to 4.5 million tons, according to the Native Forest Network. About 44% of all junk mail is thrown in the trash, unopened and unread, and ends up in a landfill. To stem the flow into your own home, contact the Direct Marketing Association's Mail Preference Service at P.O. Box 643, Carmel, NY 10512, or download the online form. Opt out of credit card or insurance offers at or by calling 888-567-8688, a single automated phone line maintained by the major credit bureaus.

  • Buy unbleached paper. Many paper products, including some made from recycled fibers, are bleached with chlorine. The bleaching process can create harmful byproducts, including dioxins, which accumulate in our air, water and soil over time.

Finally, here's a third answer to the old "paper or plastic" question: No thanks. Carry your own cloth bags to the store to avoid using store bags.

7. Want hardwood floors? Opt for bamboo. Bamboo is considered an environmentally friendly flooring material due to its high yield and the relatively fast rate at which it replenishes itself. It takes just four to six years for bamboo to mature, compared to 50-100 years for typical hardwoods. Just be sure to look for sources that use formaldehyde-free glues.

8. Reduce plastics, reduce global warming. Each year, Americans throw away some 100 billion polyethylene plastic bags — from grocery and trash bags to those ultra-convenient sandwich bags. Unfortunately, plastics are made from petroleum — the processing and burning of which is considered one of the main contributors to global warming, according to the EPA. In addition, sending plastics to the landfill also increases greenhouse gases. Reduce, re-use and recycle your plastics for one of the best ways to combat global warming.

9. Use healthier paint. Conventional paints contain solvents, toxic metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can cause smog, ozone pollution and indoor air quality problems with negative health effects, according to the EPA. These unhealthy ingredients are released into the air while you’re painting, while the paint dries and even after the paints are completely dry. Opt instead for zero- or low-VOC paint, made by most major paint manufacturers today.

10. Garden green. First, use compost instead of synthetic fertilizers. Compost provides a full complement of soil organisms and the balance of nutrients needed to maintain the soil’s well-being without the chemicals of synthetic fertilizers. And healthy soil minimizes weeds and is key to producing healthy plants, which in turn can prevent many pest problems from developing to begin with.

  • Use native plants as much as possible. Native plants have adapted over time to the local environment and support native animals. They also use less water and require less of your attention.

  • Focus on perennials. Gardening with plants that live for more than one year means you don't have to pay for new plants every year; it also saves the resources used commercially to grow annuals.

  • Stop using chemical pesticides. American households use 80 million pounds of pesticides each year, according to the EPA. These toxic chemicals escape gardens and concentrate in the environment, posing threats to animals and people, especially children. A better alternative is to try a variety of organic and physical pest control methods, such as using diatomaceous earth to kill insects, pouring boiling water on weeds or using beer to bait slugs. You can find more non-chemical pest control tips at the National Audubon Society's site.

Finally, consider using an old-fashioned push mower. The only energy expended is yours. Source:

Rather than conduct it's Men Meeting Monday evenings, the Fruit of Islam (The Men) have mobilized in the streets in a reported "100" cities across America. The objective is to organize community wide efforts of every element in the community to clean up the so-called "up tick in violence" that haunts us. Whatever city we happen to be in, please report back if you intend to relate in some way to this important, historic initiative effort, led by Minister Louis Farrakhan, The National Representative of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

Q: Are these manufacturer coupons or coupons that I print on my computer?

A: All of our coupons are actual manufacturer coupons. Fewer and fewer retailers accept coupons that are printed from your computer because of a huge increase in counterfeit coupons. Actual manufacturer coupons which we issue are accepted everywhere that coupons are accepted.

Q: Can these coupons be doubled?
A: Yes. These are manufacturer issued coupons and may be doubled in any store that offers double coupons.

Q: What are the face values and the expiration dates of these coupons?
A: Being manufacturer coupons, the manufacturer determines the face values of the coupons. We currently stock coupons ranging in value from 40 cents to 5.00 dollars. The coupon expiration dates are generally valid for 90 days.

Q: How can I use $1,000.00 worth of coupons in 90 days?
A: With our program, you get to choose the coupons you want, when you want them. This way you never have to worry about the coupons expiring.

Q: How do I choose the coupons I want?
A: Each coupon book contains coupon request slips which you fill out and send in. Those coupons are then mailed to you. ----- Coalition members! Activate ‘Your’ web link on The Coalition, Inc. web site -----
