Louis Farrakhan begs President Obama to ‘open up Area 51’

During a recent sermon, Louis Farrakhan called on President Barack Obama to “open up Area 51” – the government land at the heart of conspiracy theories about alien sightings and UFO landings. The Nation of Islam leader said that calling “the scientists” to the location would “show them the sign of the presence of God to right the wrongs of the earth and heal it.”

“President Barack Obama, call the scientists. Open up Area 51 to the scientists to the world, because you America are the leader that Allah God has raised and made you powerful that he might make himself known through you,” Farrakhan said. “And if America calls the scientists of the earth to such place, they will respond.”

“Well, Farrakhan has got it now… He knows that there is evidence in Area 51… of the mother wheel, of this massive spaceship,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And he’s calling on the President to share the presence of the wheel, so we can avert Allah’s warning of chastisement and destruction.”

TheBlaze’s Billy Hallowell reports:

The faith leader believes that this secretive government force has hidden the presence of UFOs from American presidents and the public alike for decades. This includes The Mother Wheel, a massive spaceship that he believes remains in orbit and will eventually rescue Nation of Islam adherents from earth.


As TheBlaze has reported, Farrakhan spoke about this spaceship theology during a 2011 speech.


It’s unclear how Area 51 relates to the Mother Wheel theory, aside from the notion that both themes involve UFOs and extraterrestrial theories.

In other recent theological proclamations, Farrakhan indicated that the U.S. government has known about the Mother Wheel since the 1940s, but has gone to great lengths to keep the information a secret.

“He’s also challenging all the ‘lovers of Jesus’ to a showdown,” Glenn added.

According to TheBlaze, Farrakhan issued a fiery message to Pope Francis ealier this month, challenging the pontiff and “all lovers of Jesus” to “a showdown.”

“What kind of showdown,” Pat asked. “A religion-off?”

“So like a Farrakhan-Pope boxing match type of thing,” Stu added. “Celebrity boxing? Steel cage match? MMA maybe? The guy is getting crazier every day.”

If you have an hour to spare, Farrakhan lays out his theory in the clip below:

    If the government just opened up Area 51, Farrakhan feels that it would prove once and for all that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob indeed hates Jews and Christians.

  • The Blue Tail Gadfly

    Has Farrakhan been watching those Ancient Alien Astronaut Theorists on the History Channel again?

    C’mon Glenn, accept Farrakhan’s challenge and step into the ring. This is what you were meant to do, trust me. *wink wink* LMAO

  • landofaahs

    Yea screwy louie, open up area 51 so you can get into the mother ship and fly to the stars. Hey louie, maybe NASA will let you be one of those to go to Mars on the one way trip not to return. Oh, and by the way, see if you can get Jackson and Sharpton to go with ya.

    In all fairness–have we ruled out the probability that Farrakhan has syphllis?

    • Tony Viscardi

      It should be seriously considered as he is showing the classic symptoms. This could be a cry for help! How should we respond to such a tragic situation? “If we can save just ONE Louis Farraken we should take whatever steps neccessary.

    I love you Glenn, but it doesn’t sound any stranger than Mormonism does to me.

    • Anonymous

      That’s a fair assessment. Mormonism is a strange religion (and also false). The great thing about Glenn is that you don’t find too many distinctly Mormon musings infused into his radio show. He knows his audience is in tune with common sense. Don’t get “tu quoque” about the subject. The topic is how ridiculous Farrakhan is, the topic was not Mormonism. Stick to the subject and debate it’s merit. Don’t change the subject. It doesn’t enhance your argument. That being said, I gave you a like.

    Matthew 7:15-23

    “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

    “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

  • Crassus

    If you look in the upper left hand corner of the video you’ll see the founder of the Nation of Islam, Wali Fard. He was not a black man. He was a New Zealander of Pakistani descent. He founded the Nation of Islam as a racket during the Depression. So the truth about Farrakhan’s outfit is that it was actually founded by a white man in order to make money off gullible blacks.

    Where majorities make choices and then pursuit of resulting goals is assigned to expert administrators, it will naturally become believed that any means necessary are legitimate in the majority’s name.

    • Anonymous

      …Hence the existence of the electoral college and separation of powers/i.e. checks and balances. I found your sentence eloquent. Being in the minority can be painful, but principles matter, not votes.


    And here I thought that idiot was dead.

  • Republitards suck

    You want to go there Glenn with Screwy Relegion? Let’s see what the Mormon faith believes…

    6. Rated R movies should be strictly avoided

    7. 10% of your gross income (tithing) needs to be paid to the bishop/church before you pay for any other financial obligations, bills, food or other purchases

    13. Beer is prohibited even though it is scripturally allowed (D&C 89:17) “…and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain” Beer was openly consumed in Utah by Mormons until Prohibition made it unpopular and the practice ceased.

    14. The Garden of Eden was in Missouri when Adam and Eve were kicked out

    15. All saints are to return to Missouri before the final arrival of Jesus for the Second Coming. Some believe this exodus back to Missouri would be on foot.

    20. Follow the prophet or leaders even if you think they are wrong

    21. Criticism of prophets or leaders will lead you towards apostasy

    26. The moon will literally turn to blood during second coming crisis

    27. Heavenly Mother/Goddess exists, but she/them are too sacred to discuss and cannot be worshiped or prayed to

    29. Kids or babies who die before reaching 8 years old are perfect and automatically get into heaven

    30. Missionaries can curse people by dusting their feet off as a witness to them rejecting the gospel

    31. Satan has power over the oceans, lakes and rivers which is why LDS Missionaries are not allowed to swim

    32. Satan can’t read your thoughts so praying silently can help keep some of your secrets from him

    33. Dating is strictly prohibited until you’re 16 and then only group dating is allowed or encouraged until you can marry after your mission or marry a return missionary

    34. Doctrinal polygamy gives the 1st wife authority to reject any prospects she doesn’t like. This was never really practiced though.

    35. Women who fail to marry in the temple during their life will be assigned a worthy spouse in the hereafter and likely as a sister wife with a harem of women

    36. Black people bear the curse of Cain and were born black because they were less valiant in the pre-existence (pre-Earth life) and sat on the fence as to whether to follow Satan/Lucifer or Jesus

    37. Cremation will make being resurrected harder, having to recollect all of your atoms/molecules from where ever they were spread

    39. From the polygamy days, a man had to have at least 2 wives to get into the highest degree of heaven

    40. A woman’s purpose in heaven is solely to birth endless babies to populate the worlds created by their husbands. Billions and billions of babies!

    41. Gestation is still 9 months in heaven

    42. You are better off dying trying to fend off a rapist than to survive as a victim of rape, your virginity forever stolen from you

    43. Temple garments or underwear will protect you from physical harm or the grasp of Satan

    44. Girls can only have one piercing in each ear. No piercings allowed by boys/men.

    45. Tattoos are a big no-no and should never be allowed to defile your bodies. If you have tattoos when you convert, you may be encouraged to pay for laser removal at your own expense.

    46. Flip-flops are not to be worn in the church building

    47. All forms of birth control (condoms, pills, etc) are discouraged and the couple should allow as many children into their home as God decides to send them

    48. The Earth was not created by God, but by Jesus and Michael/Adam as taught in the LDS Temple endowment ceremony

    49. Secret hand shakes, keywords and signs are provided in the Temple endowment as passwords and keys to get back into heaven, like a kids club where only those with the secret passwords can get in

    50. The church partners with Boy Scouts of America for the development of males but does not endorse nor partner with the Girl Scout programs or similar female development programs

    51. The Holy Ghost is threatened or turned away by bars, clubs and “dirty” places so will not protect you or guide you if you choose to enter such filthy places

    52. Mormon Garments must be worn day and night, only removed for sex, showering and some sporting activities

    53. Women must wear their bras and panties over their garments, as the garment should be the layer closest to the skin for maximum protection

    54. If you’re not a Mormon, or are unworthy without a temple recommend, you get excluded from the Temple wedding ceremony of loved ones, kids, siblings or best friends

    55. Mormon’s do feel there is something special about them, or that they are better than non-mormons. Having the ultimate “truth” does that to people.

    56. Masturbation is a sexual sin/transgression and seen as cheating on your existing or future spouse

    57. Sexual transgression is a sin next to murder in God’s eyes

    58. Jesus atoned for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane, not on the cross

    59. Jesus wasn’t born of a virgin. God had natural sex with Mary to impregnate Jesus

    60. You can’t get into heaven without Joseph Smith’s permission

    61. You can visit loved ones in lower kingdoms, but you cannot visit higher kingdoms of heaven if you didn’t merit it yourself, though they can visit you (see D&C 76)

    62. You can tell the difference between a good angel, bad angel or resurrected being by their willingness or ability to shake your hand

    63. No rainbows shall appear during the year before Jesus’ second coming

    64. If you’ve had a sex change, you cannot ever hold any callings/jobs in the church and only get baptized at the express permission of the First Presidency/prophet

    65. Role playing games, like D&D, are also evil

    66. Dinosaur fossils are to test our faith, and likely came from matter left over from past destroyed planets that were used/recycled to create Earth

    67. When a prophet or leader errors, it was because he was acting as a man and not as a prophet. There’s no indication until after the fact as to whether he was acting as one or the other, so you should always presume he’s acting as prophet until proven otherwise

    68. Free agency and choice is revered, but don’t make the wrong choice or we will judge, look down on and guilt you until you either stop making said wrong choices

    69. Once the prophet or brethren have spoken, the thinking has been done. Don’t question it.

    70. When someone leaves the church, it is God’s way of separating the wheat (good mormons) from the chaff (bad, evil apostates)

    71. Jesus was supposed to come in the year 2000, that is until he didn’t

    72. God is a resurrected, extra terrestrial, exalted human male who lives on a planet near a star called Kolob. See Book of Abraham, chapter 3 in Pearl of Great Price

    73. Even though Jesus had a beard, we aren’t allowed to have facial hair while attending the Lord’s University, BYU, and are discouraged or flat out not allowed to have facial hair in high up leadership positions, despite early leaders all having beards

    74. The LDS Temple questions somewhat encourage the shunning or disassociating with anyone who is anti, apostate, or against the church. This may include family members, close relatives or best friends if they end up leaving the church.

    75. The “Inspired” Joseph Smith translation of the bible is more correct than the KJV

    76. Joseph Smith’s money digging and glass looking were actually God’s way of preparing him for his role as a prophet and revelator.

    77. Our dead relatives and angel friends can see us when we sin, and so even when alone, it is not safe to masturbate or do anything “bad”.

    78. The Holy Ghost goes to bed at midnight, so all dates, sleepovers, or other activities by youth or single people need to end by midnight or else you won’t have protection or guidance against the temptations of the devil

    79. Hoard enough food, water and fuel to survive 3-12 months or more

    80. Women must wear modest clothing that extends to the floor while kneeling down (shorts, skirts etc) and that covers the shoulders and upper arms, no revealing of the midrift, no bikini swim suits, no tank tops, no spaghetti straps etc

    81. Satan’s real name in the Pre-existence is Lucifer, even though that name is only used once in the Old Testament

    82. The ancient Jews were the only people who would kill Christ and therefore the most wicked people in the universe

    83. So long as the US/America’s stay righteous, aka, primarily Christian and God fearing, they will not be attacked by foreign powers or enemies (stems from the tradition laid out in the Book of Mormon that righteousness equals protection from enemies by God etc).

    84. The Earth is a living entity that must also go through ordinances, death and exaltation. The Flood of Noah was the Earth’s baptism. The fire and burning at the 2nd coming will be the baptism by fire and immediately after, exaltation to a perfect sphere of glass

    85. The Earth was once in orbit around Kolob, but was expelled when Adam fell from the Garden of Eden. It will again return to that orbit after the millennium.

    86. If you don’t make it to the highest degree of the Celestial Kingdom, you will be gender-less in the after life. No sex or sex urges for you in the Terrestrial and Telestial kingdoms.

    87. When people leave the church and can’t leave it alone (despite being psychologically and emotionally damaged by it), it is called “kicking against the pricks”, and is fulfillment of prophesy.

    88. There are people living on the moon. LINK They dress much like Quakers and they are tall, many standing seven feet tall or more. One day we will send missionaries to teach them the gospel. There are also people living on the sun. Journal of Discourses, Vol. 13, p. 217

    89. Brigham Young (2nd LDS prophet) taught that Adam was the literal God of the Earth and Earth’s family

    90. If you serve valiantly as a missionary, you’ll be blessed with a beautiful and righteous spouse when you return

    91. If you hold your right arm to the square and invoke the power of the priesthood, you can cast out devils, divert floods and lava flows, and baptize others

    92. Women covenant in the temple to “observe and keep the law of the Lord and hearken unto the counsel of your husband as he hearkens unto the counsel of the Father”

    93. All covenant in the temple “to sacrifice all that we possess, even our own lives if necessary, in sustaining and defending the Kingdom of God”

    94. We covenant to “avoid all lightmindedness, loud laughter, evil speaking of the Lord’s anointed, the taking of the name of God in vain, and every other unholy and impure practice”

    95. More, we covenant in temples to “accept the Law of Consecration as contained in theDoctrine and Covenants, in that you do consecrate yourselves, your time, talents, and everything with which the Lord has blessed you, or with which he may bless you, to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, for the building up of the Kingdom of God on the earth and for the establishment of Zion”

    96. Garments represent the garment God/Jesus made and gave to Adam when he discovered his nakedness in the Garden of Eden

    97. Women are most valued when in the home, rearing children and taking care of domestic affairs (laundry, dishes, house cleaning, etc)

    98. In the temple marriage covenant/ceremony, women “give [themselves] to [their husband] to be his lawful and wedded wife” and men “receive her unto [himself] to be [his] lawful and wedded wife for time and all eternity”

    99. If a widow remarries a man for time only, and bears him children, those children will belong to her first and sealed husband in the eternities

    100. Before a woman can remarry in the temple for eternity, she must first get a temple sealing annulment, which can only come at the approval of the First Presidency, and will likely not be allowed if the first husband is deceased

    101. Women were at one point allowed to give blessings by the laying on of hands, but that practice was ended when they were found to be more successful at healing than the priesthood holding men
