WND Scoops 2008

WND was the first news organization to blow the whistle on Sen. Barack Obama’s plan for a “civilian national security force,” which the presidential candidate asserted in a speech would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the half-trillion dollar Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force.

Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND, used his daily column first to raise the issue of the secret $439 billion plan, and then to elevate it with a call to all reporters to start asking questions about it.

After Farah reported the statement, it was picked up by many other news organizations and became the subject of intense discussions on the Internet.

WND reported Sen. Barack Obama’s face several times graced the cover of Trumpet Magazine, an anti-American publication run by his longtime pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., appearing on one issue alongside Nation of Islam chief Louis Farrakhan.

When the topic of end-of-term presidential pardons is raised – of who’s
most deserving of the outgoing chief executive’s compassion and mercy –
there’s one case that leaps instantly to mind:
that of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. The two imprisoned
U.S. Border Patrol agents are at the center of a case that has inspired
near-universal outrage and passion among Americans, including numerous
U.S. congressmen
who staunchly defend the men. WND led the investigation into the high-profile prosecutions and convictions of the two border cops, who received 11- and 12-year sentences for slightly wounding an illegal alien drug smuggler with a gunshot while in pursuit and in the line of duty.

WND was first to report on the food shortages sweeping the globe. From India to Africa to North Korea to Pakistan and even in New York City, higher grain prices, fertilizer shortages and rising energy costs are combining to spell hunger for millions in what is being characterized as a global “silent famine.”
