President Trump meets Buhari, Fulani President of Nigeria at the White House #RecognizeBiafra

The President of  #USA met the Fulani President on the White House lawn on April 30, 2018. I am referring to President Donald Trump and Fulani President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari. As much as I wanted President Trump to say the word 'Biafra,' he did not. Instead he said, "Christians must not be killed in Nigeria."
Biafrans are a patient and intelligent group of people. They understand diplomacy and are grateful that Christians were mentioned. Trump wants great trade deals and yes, on the surface, Nigeria looks like a good customer for America's farm products because of the cows of the Fulani Herdsmen, whose designation as the 4th most deadly terrorist group in the world, refuse to keep their cattle on ranches, and prefer to decimate farm land, killing and raping the families on farms, leaving horror in their wake. Therefore, there is not enough home grown food for the people in the country of Nigeria, which is described in a gross inaccuracy as a Democracy.  Their ethnic cleansing clears the way for increased Islamization of Nigeria, their modus operandi since the 16th century. Instead of proscribing Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria as terrorist, Buhari has designated #IPOB, the non-violent, unarmed Indigenous People of Biafra as terrorist. 

"Militants “descend on the villages in the night or in the day and carry out cruel attacks against innocent people, including women and children,” according to an assessment of Nigeria by Open Doors, a charity that provides aid to Christians who live under pressure because of their faith. “There are moves by the governments of Benue, Kaduna, Nasarawa and Taraba States to establish and reserve grazing fields for Hausa-Fulani Muslim herdsmen. This means that swathes of land from indigenous Christian communities are taken away for that purpose, depriving Christians of their farming fields and livelihood.” " via World Wide Watch Monitor.
Said Arne Mulders, Open Doors’ West Africa research expert:

“These herders have historically played a role in jihad, and they have grown increasingly radical in recent times due to the influx of radical Islamist preaching by missionaries from Saudi Arabia and Iran. The radicalization in the Fulani has also kept pace with the Boko Haram radicalization. The Fulanis’ actions are also shaped by concept of Darul Islam, where everything belongs to Allah directly and to his followers indirectly–including the land where they want to let their cattle craze. They believe it is right for them to take those resources by force from infidels and apostates.”

Perhaps that is too much to ask, that anyone, even President Trump can comprehend the diversity of Biafrans. There are 25 tribes in Biafra with their own provinces. I've been onboard advocating for Biafra for over two years, learning new facts about Biafra, each new day,  Nnamdi Kanu, the missing leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. Nnamdi Kanu is a Jew.

Gonzo Journalism: Currently working on The Biafra Faktor, sequel to The Masada Faktor

I'm currently working on The Biafra Faktor. It's a sequel to The Masada Faktor which is a fictional noir featuring Natasha Bernard as protagonist. Loosely based on my own life,  I thought of using Natasha Bernard as my nom de plume but instead, cast her in a Gonzo journalism approach.

Natasha's adventures in Israel in 2014, after immigration to the Holy Land are adventurous, harrowing, and sexy as she attempts to solve the mystery of The Masada Faktor, imparted to her by her mother, at her deathbed. In Israel, with Operation Protective Edge, the Gaza
War raging, Natasha realizes the significance of the mystery linked to current events.

Why The Biafra Faktor? My involvement and advocacy with the Indigenous People of Biafra has led me to an intense two year study of the situation in West African Biafra Land since the Civil War in the late Sixties. When their attempt to separate and actualize their own country from the British amalgamated country of Nigeria it ended in the genocidal starvation of 3.5 million men, women, and children (estimates of the dead vary and may be as high as six million.) Now, after their leader Nnamdi Kanu and his parents were taken by the Nigerian Army in September of 2017, and since being proscribed as a terrorist group by Nigeria, they are being hunted and butchered by the Islamic regime. Biafrans are committed to a non-violent struggle and, in my opinion, not exercising self-defense. It is only a matter of time before enough will be enough and they may be forced to fight back.

And so, in my new book, as Natasha Bernard struggles to return to Israel after a sojourn in the United States, she becomes involved with the Biafran people. Whether a manifestation of her childhood trauma as a Child of the Holocaust (Natasha's mother mirrors my mother, a Holocaust survivor from Hungary) or simply an empathic response to these highly intelligent and educated people, Natasha becomes embroiled in a conspiracy that spans the globe.

Stay tuned to the further adventures of Natasha Bernard, my alter ego. Is truth stranger than fiction? Or is fiction stranger than truth? When the time comes, I'll let you decide.

The compelling subject of unconditional basic income

I entered a contest and didn't win. The subject of the contest, unconditional basic income, was compelling and I wanted to challenge myself to write something different on demand.  The Economic Security Project, who organized the contest, is exploring the debate and experiments of "Basic Income," as they describe below. 
"The Economic Security Project is a network committed to advancing the debate on unconditional cash and basic income in the United States. In a time of immense wealth, no one should live in poverty, nor should the middle class be consigned to a future of permanent stagnation or anxiety. Automation, globalization, and financialization are changing the nature of work, and these shifts require us to rethink how to create economic opportunity for all.
Now is the time to think seriously about how expanding unconditional cash could work, how to pay for it, and what the political path might be to make it a reality. Join us."
A lot has been written on the unconditional basic income that has been implemented in Finland recently. The idea has been tossed around for a long time and is especially pleasing to the Left.

In my short story I addressed both sides of the issue in a fictional story.
