They are the Russian Nationalist Bikers Group, called the Russian Night-wolves, also known as the “Putin’s Angels.”  At their Donbass chapter headquarters, in the eastern Ukrainian province of Luhansk,  the motorcycle club, which has over 5,000 members, identifies their background with the motto: “Where we are, there is Russia.”

What are ‘Putin’s Angels fighting for? President Vladimir Putin accompany  the bikers regularly on his own Harley-Davidson tricycle and he loves to be photographed together with the group’s leader Aleksander Zaldostanov, nicknamed ‘Surgeon.’ I’m happy that he is not a micro-surgeon and as a micro-surgeon, I wouldn’t even dream to give him a face-lift, because we can possibly recognize the ugly face of the one who shot down the MH17, by the orders of Putin, together with the corrupt Russian generals, operating mafioso system and selling polonium to the highest bidder.

We have to consider Alexander  Zaldostanov as friend of one of the most powerful person in the world, Vladimir Putin, in this way, able to commit any crime he is told. The Washington Post put the group on the sanction list, partly because of the kidnapping of an Ukrainian border guard. The Night-wolves see themselves as defenders of  Russian traditional values and thus; require to leave your wife, children and your house behind.

That’s what the deputy commander of Donbass chapter, Denis Kuznetsov thinks about of being a member of the Night-wolves. Half a year ago, he got on his motorcycle and left everything behind in Moscow, to support the pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine with thousands of Night-wolves, armed by Putin. “That’s patriotism,” he said.

“When I look at all the military stuff here, I’m proud of Russia and I realize that we have something to face the Americans. They would not dare to push the button of a rocket but we do.In Soviet times, was the army and far-from-our-bed, now we feel much closer. The army is here romanticized, and I think something good. If we do not educate our children, will Americans do in our place, as in Ukraine …, ” said Zaldostanov, the so-called criminal leader of Putin’s favorite motor gang.

Members of the Night Wolves, have fought on the side of pro-Russian militants during the Crimean crisis and war in Donbass, at the site of of the plane crash. They have blockaded the main routes into Sevastopol and participated in attacks on a natural gas facility and the naval headquarters in the city. In April 2015, Agence France-Presse stated that Alexei Vereshchyagin, a biker and one of Putin’s friends, had fought against Ukrainian government forces in  Luhansk.

In December 2014, the United States announced sanctions against the Night Wolves due to their involvement in attacks on a gas distribution station in Strikolkove and the Ukrainian naval headquarters, in Sevastopol, and recruitment of fighters for the war in Donbass. They hope for an independent state in eastern Ukraine. But the new Russia hasn’t yet fallen into the hands of the rebels. The fierce fighting came to a halt last year in the area now a frozen conflict zone.

A branch of motorcycle gang Night Wolves, has sworn allegiance to none other than Vladimir Putin, that they are still ready to fight. They are heavily equipped and able to buy another rocket like a BUK. It may be likely that Putin will be assassinated by progressive and democratic Russians. This can happen.

Suggestion

The plausibility of the first launch area presented by Almaz-Antey was already discussed in a previous Bellingcat investigation. That investigation analyzed situation maps, satellite imagery, and press reports from the area and arrived at the following main conclusions: The Almaz-Antey launch area presented on 2 June 2015, was under Russian control, and there were no Ukrainian troops in the area on 17 July 2014.

Also, there were no Ukrainian Buks in the proposed launch area on 17 July 2014. However, there is not enough information to reject a missile launch from the area. Because there are relevant differences between Almaz-Antey’s old launch area and its two new launch areas. It should be asked whether these conclusions still hold for the new launch areas? This question is covered in this report.

How can the Night-wolves be defeated? Is also a question I will leave for the Americans to answer.

Could Africa Be The Toughest Continent In The World?

LIES 3Told over and over again are also called the media.

Journalism is the activity of news gathering, assessing, creating, and presenting the information to the general public. That’s the simplest way I can define this profession. But there is more involved in this profession. They are dishonesty, hypocrisy and blatant lies, which have caused lost of trust of viewers and readers.

The European and American media will let you understand that Africa is the most dangerous continent in the world, yet violence and the high rate of  crime in America exceed the crime rate in Africa. How many Africans keep pistol or guns in their homes, like Americans? Africa needs an answer.

The Western and America media will let you understand that Africa is a continent that lacks education, affected by corruption, poverty and plagued by diseases, such as malaria, Ebola, Aids, Lassa fever and other deadly diseases. But the teenage pregnancy threatening Europe, especially Britain alone, is overwhelming. Thus, if lack of education is one of the causes of teenage pregnancy, then are African teenagers more intelligent than British teenagers?

SLAVERY AND MEDICAL CRIMES

Throughout Europe and America, the only definition a child knows about Africa is: ‘A poor continent.’ But for ages, there is no European and American journalist intelligent enough to ask: How are we going to cope up, handle or survive, if the calamities which had fallen on Africa in the past and present fall on us? In this way we need to learn from Africa how we can survive in times of adversity. Americans were scared to death when a Liberian was diagnosed with Ebola on American soil, while Africa is painstakingly dealing with this medical crime in West Africa with courage.

The Africa continent has suffered slavery and all kinds of terrorism and persecutions during the colonial era, shaping the pattern of  lives of its citizens, both psychologically and physically, making Africans one of the strongest and toughest creatures living on the planet today. On National Geography are documentary films showing how to survive when lost in the desert and mountains, but Africans already live on the desert and in mountains.

In some villages in Africa, many haven’t seen electricity before, yet they are happy and each day, they follow their normal activities. Which European or American can live a normal life without electricity in his or her entire life? Endurance, pain and experience have structured the African continent in a way that they could stand the hardest conditions. This is the reason Africa is still standing on its feet despite every evil thing they’ve experienced in the hands of Europeans and Americans.

Europe and America knew long time ago, the incredible strength of Africa, but they are scared and find it embarrassing and a sort of disgrace to learn how Africans survive on that harsh continent. Instead they planned to cause confusion, depopulate and destroy the continent to make its citizens unhealthy.

SUICIDE RATE IN EUROPE AND AMERICA

Despite all the problems that Africans face daily, only few commit suicide. This should be something to inspire Europe and America to find out: How and why only few people take their lives in Africa, so that we could learn something from them? Europe and America politicians and the media will never do that, instead they always try to find a way to inflict pain and destruction against Africans.

Below is the ‘World Suicide Rate’ per country published by The Washington Post. 

Suicide rates per 100,000 people
Austria 13.8
Belgium 18.4
Britain 6
Canada 10.2
Czech Republic 12.7
Denmark 11.3
Finland 16.5
France 14.6
Germany 10.3
Greece 2.9
Hungary 21.0
Iceland 10.4
Italy 5.5
Japan 19.4
Luxembourg 9.5
Mexico 4.4
Netherlands 7.9
New Zealand 11.9
Norway 10.9
Poland 13.8
Portugal 8.7
Slovak Republic 10.9
South Korea 24.7
Spain 6.3
Sweden 11.1
United States 10.1
 Notes: Data is for 2005.
Readers you can see that there is no African country mentioned in this suicide list. It is time for the European and America media to respect Africa, and stop underestimating the continent. Africa may not have powerful weapons and ammunition like Europe and America, Africa may be poorer than Europe and America, Africa may have weak and fragile health-care systems, yet Africans are hundred percent physically and psychologically strong than Europeans and Americans. The world should know this, because the bias European and American media won’t tell you.

Secret Son

A 30-year old Moroccan Arab, Nabil Amrani, gets entangled in an adulterous relationship with his pregnant wife’s nurse, Rachida, and this results in pregnancy. To save the honor of her family, Nabil’s mother sacks the nurse. Nabil gives her some money to go get an abortion. All this is kept a secret from Malika, Nabil’s legitimate wife.

SON 2

Malika gives birth to a girl, Amal. Initially the gender issue does not matter to Nabil, but later on when the subject of inheritance surfaces, it becomes an issue and Nabil regrets not having a son. When fired, Rachida relocates to Casablanca, keeps the pregnancy and five months after Amal is born, she gives birth to a son, Youssef. Nobody, not even Nabil, is aware of this.

Rachida does not tell her son who his real father is, but one day the boy confronts his mother and learns the truth. He decides to trace his father, who though surprised to learn that he has a secret son, is somewhat relieved that he has a male offspring to inherit his business empire.

All the while, Nabil’s daughter Amal grows up thinking that she is the only offspring of her father. At some point in time she goes to the USA to get some education. While there she moves in with Fernando, a photographer. Her parents find this out and get furious for, according to them, she has caused a clash of cultures and brought dishonor to her family.

A yawning emotional gulf develops between parents, on one side, and daughter, on the other side. But at the time of her graduation, they visit her, try to persuade her to break up the relationship and to return to Morocco. She accedes to their wish. During this visit Nabil confesses to his daughter the affair he had several years ago, a secret that Malika had by then learned. Nabil’s confession infuriates her daughter and makes her depressed.

Just when Youssef is beginning to enjoy his new life with his father, disaster strikes, thanks to the orchestrations of his stepmother Malika.  He is forced to return to the slums where he grew up, where he is welcomed by the sympathy of his mother and the taunts of his friend, Amin.

A running theme in the novel is the political rivalry between Hatim Lahlou of the Party, which seemed to represent the poor class, and Farid Benaboud, who represents the world of the wealthy – the world into which Youssef has been brutally denied entry and which he now loathes. Youssef falls prey to the politics around him, when Hatim recruits him to carry out an assassination plot.

An enthralling read, Secret Son, provides a window into Moroccan society – a society that has its share of ills, from unemployment to adultery.  The story explores the importance of love and family and how exclusion, poverty and unemployment can drive victims to acts of desperation.

“Get In Trouble,” A Book By Los Angeles Times Bestseller Kelly Link

Culled From BuzzFeed Books.

LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER

She has been hailed by Michael Chabon as “the most darkly playful voice in American fiction” and by Neil Gaiman as “a national treasure.” Now Kelly Link’s eagerly awaited new collection—her first for adult readers in a decade—proves indelibly that this bewitchingly original writer is among the finest we have.

Kelly 1
Link has won an ardent following for her ability, with each new short story, to take readers deeply into an unforgettable, brilliantly constructed fictional universe. The nine exquisite examples in this collection show her in full command of her formidable powers. In “The Summer People,” a young girl in rural North Carolina serves as uneasy caretaker to the mysterious, never-quite-glimpsed visitors who inhabit the cottage behind her house. In “I Can See Right Through You,” a middle-aged movie star makes a disturbing trip to the Florida swamp where his former on- and off-screen love interest is shooting a ghost-hunting reality show. In “The New Boyfriend,” a suburban slumber party takes an unusual turn, and a teenage friendship is tested, when the spoiled birthday girl opens her big present: a life-size animated doll.

Hurricanes, astronauts, evil twins, bootleggers, Ouija boards, iguanas, The Wizard of Oz, superheroes, the Pyramids . . . These are just some of the talismans of an imagination as capacious and as full of wonder as that of any writer today. But as fantastical as these stories can be, they are always grounded by sly humor and an innate generosity of feeling for the frailty—and the hidden strengths—of human beings. In Get in Trouble, this one-of-a-kind talent expands the boundaries of what short fiction can do.
