Fake News: Libyan Slave Markets. Exclusive Report!

What is up with this current aggrandizement of the Gaddafi regime? After CNN came out with video of slave auction markets in Libya, all hell has broken loose online and on mainstream media. Reports of African slaves being auctioned in Libya and the true ongoing horrors of immigrants drowning trying to escape Africa for EU countries has outraged the world. 

Twitter has erupted in total revisionist history of the real Gadaffi era. Even the lackluster UN has jumped to the forefront to do something now as The New York Times reports that the UN is attempting to empty Libyan migrant detention centers

I began reporting on Libya in 2010 before the revolution and ouster of Gadaffi. Years ago I became friends with a gentleman from Misrata (Misurata) whom I trust to answer my questions and tell the truth on the situation on the ground in Libya. 

My 2015 4th anniversary of the revolution in Libya report highlighted triumph and tragedy as to what transpired in Libya during the four years after the revolution. 

My Libyan friend has kindly agreed to tell us what the real story is regarding the slave auctions. Here is our conversation.

Naomi: Hello friend. Can you give me something to counter the Libya slave auction story? I am having a hard time believing what is being reported.

Misrati: Yes, I am glad to tell you the real story and hope you can get this out to the public. There are two types of Africans that come to Libya.

The first type are those who come for working. They always go home. When these type enter, they stay at the South and they call their ex-boss by phone, since they had been to Libya before, and tell them they need someone to smuggle them to the North so they would be granted a safe transportation. They return home after a year or two to visit their family and then they make the journey to Libya again. This type of working migrant are mostly from Chad and Niger. Sometimes they are not lucky and they cross to the North via a town called Bani Walid, the town that CNN did not mention by name. At Bani Walid they get trapped and jailed by a gang who will not release them until they get paid. So they call their ex-boss again and also their friends back home and ask them to pay so they will be released. There is always an agent in the Northern city working for the gang and he is the one that gets the money. This agent sends a signal back to the gang to release the jailed migrant.

The second type of migrant are those that want to go to EU with no return to Africa. They are from Tunisia, Morocco, Syria, Ghana, and Nigeria. Those people are not used to Libya. As for them, it is a one way journey, so they get into the hands of the gang before they reach the sea smugglers, since the gang knows that those migrants are desperate to reach the North. They arrest them and never release them until they pay or someone pays for them, and finally they will end up in such labor market auction that was reported by CNN, but as soon as they reach the North, they will quit work and ride the sea to EU. Some of them used to stay in Libya when the value of the Libyan Dinar was o.k., selling alcohol, drugs, and prostitution. But now as the LYD is not worthy they migrate North to Italy seeking more fertile ground. 

Now, the auction that CNN is talking about is for the migrants who do not have a friend or ex-boss to pay for their release. So the gang offers them as labor. The shop owners or the farmers come to pay against the migrants' release. This is the whole story. The 'auction' is just telling the type of work that particular migrant is skilled at. So this is fake news. This has nothing to do with slavery. Trump was right. 

I don't deny there is torture. But it is rare. And what do these migrants expect in Libya with such terrible conditions here in Libya for the native citizens? The Libyans themselves are suffering from a lack of food and medical care. I don't think it is fair that we are responsible for people crossing our country to EU; that we have to feed them and treat them as they come wave after wave.

Naomi: Thank you. I hope this helps clarify the situation. Also, this should serve as a warning to Africans that it is treacherous to go to Libya, either to work or to migrate to EU.

BREAKING NEWS: Nigerian Concentration Camp: Cruel and Unusual Punishment! Torture Video of Indigenous People of Biafra

I was just having a regular afternoon when I received an email from a member of IPOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra. He had been having some problem uploading this video on twitter and I was trying to help him with his settings, as it appeared that he was being censored. A 45 second clip was seen on twitter but it was nothing like the entire video, which is below. Shock and horror are understated nouns to describe what you will see here. It looks like the IPOB members are being forced to swim in filthy shallow water in a drainage ditch and then cram themselves into a pipe full of other IPOB members. The guard wears an Adidas jacket and as he whips the boys, he screams "Move Move Move Move" in English and some other language to them in the water. There is a long line of others waiting to enter the ditch and he yells "Hunch Hunch" as they do a frog jump. Then you see some guys hanging from their feet from the trunk of a tree while the guard laughs. If anyone knows where this camp is located and recognizes the prisoners clothing, please contact me by email at

Biafra: As The World Turns

On November 18, 2017, Nigerian elections will take place in an enclave known as Biafra Land in the so-called country of Nigeria on the continent of Africa. Biafra seeks #BiafraExit, their self-determination and freedom from Nigeria (the Zoo) through peaceful Referendum. Biafrans, who consist of many tribes, the largest being the Igbo, were ordered by Nnamdi Kanu, their Jewish leader to stay at home. "No elections will take place until we are given a referendum (for Biafra Exit),"  Kanu said. "There will be no election here anymore."  The Biafran people will stay home even in the face of reports that the Nigerian government is sending 28,000 military troops into Anambra. 

On September 14, 2017 Nnamdi Kanu went missing and is presumed dead. His body has not been found and the Nigerian government denies even attacking his home. But his voice is still vibrant, kept alive because of the great people of Biafra. And if his dead body, and those of his parents, are found, I can only imagine what will happen in the Land of the Rising Sun. To this day the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) maintain a strict non-violence policy. But with a physical confirmation of his and his parents deaths? All bets are off.
"IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, told Vanguard that the attackers wore army and police uniforms and drove into the palace of the traditional ruler of Afaraukwu, who is the father of Nnamdi Kanu and started shooting people. He said in a statement: “We did not clash with anybody or group. The attackers wore Nigerian soldiers and Nigeria Police uniforms and came to kill our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in his compound at Afaraukwu, Umuahia and started shooting sporadically and killed five people and up to 30 other people had bullet wounds. After attacking our people, they drove off. They came in five Hilux vans.”
The day that Kanu went missing, when the Nigerian army burst onto the family compound and into the palace, Kanu's father, His Royal Majesty Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and mother Ugoeze Nnenne Kanu, were home with Nnamdi and other family members, friends, and members of the unarmed, non-violent Biafra Security Service. Many died violently, some were taken alive, some shot and thrown into the bush where they later died, and a few made videos with their cell phones which made it out with survivors. About a month later, the Nigerian killers returned to loot whatever belongings had not been taken on September 14. They didn't know about the CCTV on premises and they were captured on video.

I was told by someone that he was "safe." The person that said that is no longer in my sphere. It is my opinion, that even if Nnamdi Kanu IS alive, it means he is not safe. Either he is in Nigerian prison somewhere, or in the hands of a new and violent group that has popped up who is bragging on twitter about performing vigilante justice, including mass murder and arson. That group, I believe, may be backed financially by a psychopath whose reckless grandiosity will be their undoing. He and his group intend to usurp IPOB (Indigenous People of Biafra) to form a new government, while allowing IPOB to be a political group if they are loyal to the "new government." Needless to say I have blocked these terrifying people that I believe are involved on twitter, my email, and facebook.

So many theories abound. Conspiracies, insanity, mass murder, arson and more...

Now back to the elections.
The precursor to the 'Stay at Home' order of November 18 was a few days ago on November 5 at the Enugu election. Biafrans were also told to stay at home and not vote. Twin explosions tore through the polling area.  IPOB hailed the boycott and said that Biafra is in control. 
I could go on and on but there's plenty of news that you can find online for yourselves. 
For now, I will sign off with a sincere hope for the best. 

This video below, was after Nnamdi Kanu was released from Kujo prison, and before the events spoken of above. Notice the Israeli and American flags flying.

The Cover Image

The cover image is a stained glass masterpiece that was created by the Maumejean Brothers in July 1941 at the Saint Jacques Church in Montgeron south of Paris, France as a visible sign of French Resistance during the Nazi occupation. It was not noticed for seventy years until January 2011. The stained glass depicts Adolph Hitler as King Herod. Hitler’s moustache is hidden behind his arm in order not to be noticeable but the black fringed hair clearly depicts Hitler as Herod, violently murdering Saint Jacques who represents the Jewish people. Jacques is French for James which is Jacob in Hebrew. Jacob, considered a patriarch, was the father of the twelve tribes of Israel.


A group of six Schutzstaffel, SS German Nazis met in secret toward the end of World War II. It was the first week of May 1945 and they had gathered in their favorite location, a member’s home, in a downstairs hidden room, with access through a false wall built into the water closet next to the boiler.

The light was dim and yellowed and the chairs smelled musty. Several cases of German cognac that had been stashed there by German troops was available to fortify and bolster their courage and assuage the boredom while they waited for instructions.

Higher level SS operatives had organized these groups of four to six SS per cell. They called the overall group Odessa, the Organization of Former SS Members and it was secretly founded the year before as it became clear that Germany was losing the war.

The immense amount of stolen wealth from the Jews would finance their plan for the continuation of post-war mischief related to the annihilation of remaining Jews. With these monetary resources and technical and military Nazi experts they and the other groups organized and awaited their orders.

What this group finally received by messenger that night came in a worn grey leather pouch, and inside was a folder, the label handwritten with purple ink: The Masada Faktor. This group did not include technical experts, their value however, was in their dedication to the cause. They felt relief but trepidation as they opened the envelope which contained six sets of duplicate secret orders.

Their meetings so far had included speculation as to what their orders would be but they knew whatever it was, it would include the continuation of the destruction of the Jews worldwide. Their mission would be to strictly follow those orders.

They also drank freely. Sometimes Bruno would bring drugs that they would share.

“Tonight I have a special treat,” Bruno rasped.

The five others included Wilhelm, Erich, Gustav, Joachim, and Oskar. “I told you no more drugs,” Gustav growled, and pushed Bruno off his chair.

“Stop this immediately,” Oskar piped in with his bizarre high pitched voice. “From this moment on we will not use any more pharmaceuticals, only alcohol will be allowed.”

Oskar slapped first Bruno and then Gustav across the face as Wilhelm, Joachim, and Erich watched wide-eyed, nodding with a mixture of fear and disgust.

Silence ensued as they sat and read the plans for the operation. The Masada Faktor was a strategy that sought to tie a new fiasco against the Jews to an important historical event in Jewish history that was an obsession of Hitler’s.

Updates to WANTED NIGERIAN WAR CRIMINALS LIST #BiafraExit #BiafraReferendum

Last year on September 7, 2016 , I published a list of Biafra's Most Wanted Nigerian War Criminals. I did this in response to Nigeria posting a list of Wanted Biafrans while the leader of the IPOB (Indigenous People of Biafra,) Nnamdi Kanu was still being held in Kuje Prison in Abuja, Nigeria. My list is not completely inclusive of the current genocidal terrorist butchers at large. Many that have made the Biafrans' life hell since the amalgamation of Nigeria in 1914 by Lord Lugard, British colonialist are thankfully dead. But new ones arise from the pits of Hell daily.

I had the names of twenty of those that IPOB considers MOST wanted for their war crimes. I had help from Biafra Intelligence and other well informed Biafrans that shall remain anonymous for their own safety.

Today I will add six more wanted Nigerian war criminals which brings my total to twenty-six. Today I had help from one of my sources. I will begin with the new additions:

Exclusive! Conversations With Naomi: Adam Gordon, English As A Second Language Teacher #TheRaiseAct #ESL

Adam Gordon, BA, MA
ESL Teacher

I have known Adam Gordon online for many years and continue to appreciate his presence and support on Twitter. His profession as a teacher of English as a Second language has interested me. The Raise Act  (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment, the bill introduced earlier this year by Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga.) was publicly backed last week by President Donald Trump 

Naomi: AdamWelcome to Conversations With Naomi. Thanks for lending your expertise. I want to get a true perspective on immigrants learning English. The Raise Act might be a negative for immigrants wanting to come to America that do not speak English. It brings the humanitarian versus economic issues of immigration to the forefront. I believe your opinion and experience is crucial to discussion of this topic.  First, I have questions about your background as it applies here. Your views as an expert on immigrants learning English is crucial. Please tell our readers what led you to pursue your profession as an English as a Second Language teacher?

Adam: I got my BA in history. At first, I wanted to be a history teacher. Before I got my MA, I wanted to spend some time traveling. I applied to the Peace Corps and I also applied to a job teaching English in Japan. I decided on the job in Japan. A one year contract turned into three years in Japan and one year in South Korea. I enjoyed that experience a lot. When I returned to Texas, I decided that English as a Second Language was the field I wanted to teach.

Naomi: How did teaching English in Japan and South Korea impact you? What did you enjoy the most?

Adam: I enjoyed seeing new places and meeting new people. People who actually live in a country get to have a view that short term tourists don’t get. I gained a better world view by living in these countries and making friends from many countries. People who live in a new country have to learn to be adaptable. It impacted me because I know what my students go through when they try to learn a new language in the United States. I also understand what it means to move to a new country alone.
