Cleveland, OH, USA — In 1932, Winston Churchill has ominous intelligence from a confidential source in Germany. Across the United States, naked bodies, drained of blood, their eyeballs extracted, appeared at ten remote locations. A serial killer? Or something worse? Churchill’s source believes the answers may lie in Germany.

Churchill informs William Randolph Hearst who assigns his best journalist, Mattie McGary, Churchill’s risk-taking Scottish goddaughter, to investigate. Together with her lover, the lawyer and ex-military intelligence agent Bourke Cockran, Jr., they become the target of an international conspiracy that ranges from Wall Street to Washington, DC; from Long Island’s fabled Gold Coast to the marble corridors of the Barlow Palace in Munich, headquarters of Adolf Hitler’s fast-rising Nazi Party that is poised on the cusp of power.

Mattie’s discovery in America that all ten victims were twins leads her to learn that there are ten more missing twins for whom “autopsy protocols” will begin in Bavaria in just ten days. Mattie and Cockran embark for Germany on the famed airship the Graf Zeppelin in a race against time to locate and save the twins. In Bavaria, they combine forces with unlikely allies leading to a sinister Nazi clinic in the Bavarian National Forest near the small border town of Passau where Hitler lived as a child. Once there, they uncover an unspeakable alliance between Wall Street-funded American eugenicists and Nazi scientists to conduct lethal experiments on American twins in order to unlock the secrets to creating a master race.

Michael McMenamin is the author of the critically acclaimed Becoming Winston Churchill, The Untold Story of Young Winston and His American Mentor. His son Patrick McMenamin is an award-winning journalist who has produced stories for ABC News, Fox News, HuffPost and Buzzfeed.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book by CC Crawford

The Ultimate African Solution, Race…First Brick, by CC Crawford, will solve all of Black people’s problems and provide the whole African race with one hundred percent employment for this, and future generations.

Warren, MI, USA — CC Crawford’s The Ultimate African Solution, Race…First Brick implores: Africans!!! It is imperative that we revel in each other’s successes and instead of willfully keeping ourselves down, we offer helping hands to pick each other up.

Africa is due reparation for the atrocities our ancestors had to bear, in order for the two races here in question, to be able to truly coexist as nature intended. Fighting on their behalf, to make right them being wronged throughout five hundred years of recent history and still counting, will allow our deserving ancestors to finally rest in peace. THE ULTIMATE AFRICAN SOLUTION will be achieved without any human beings losing their lives. No one has to die.

The negative effects that slavery and colonialism have on the African’s psyche, must be affectedly nullified first and foremost, in order to step up in race. There are numerous steps to take to overcome the mental struggles caused from the enslavement of the mind syndrome and ridding the African race of “self-hate” tops the list.

We are underrepresented in regards to important decisions been made above our heads and disrespect of the Black race is “IN YOUR FACE” blatant. A Black person born today will endure the same fate as Black people did a hundred years ago and the system is designed to maintain Africans in the same dependent position for many generations to come. Black people in the western hemisphere have been geared to only strive for an elusive equality, when reunification with Mother Africa should be our ultimate goal to achieve racial parity.

THE ULTIMATE AFRICAN SOLUTION is my life’s work, inspired by the teachings of Marcus Mosiah Garvey, hero of many and one of the greatest Africans to ever walk the face of the earth. He taught the diaspora how to trample down Babylon and overcome obstacles through self-sufficiency, despite dwelling in the pits of oppression. Thanks to my Mother Ella Steele for nurturing me, the Island of Jamaica for my education, “Non Potest”, the United States for teaching me life’s lessons and to all the ancestors, whose spirits have guided and protected me through this inevitable process. I fear no evil and I will continue to be comforted by the greater presence of God Almighty.

FED Publishing Releases New eBook Edition of, “The Parsifal Pursuit” by Michael McMenamin & Patrick McMenamin

A new eBook edition of The Parsifal Pursuit by Michael McMenamin & Patrick McMenamin continues the award-winning series of Winston Churchill Thrillers weaving history, intrigue, thrills and romance during the era leading up to World War II. The 2nd novel in the series, it was the 2011 Grand Prize Winner-Fiction in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and also ForeWord Review’s 2011 Thriller/Suspense Book of the Year.

Cleveland, OH, USA — In the spring of 1931 a conspiracy in Germany to assassinate President Hindenburg and elevate the Kaiser’s son to the throne threatens the peace of Europe and sets off an epic quest to discover the secret hiding place of the Spear of Destiny, the lance which pierced the side of Christ. Kaiser Wilhelm II insists that the missing Spear-a talisman of bloodthirsty conquerors from Constantine to Frederick the Great-must be found and restored to his family.

Adolf Hitler also deeply reveres Frederick the Great and wants the Spear every bit as much as the Kaiser. So does Winston Churchill-growling in the political wilderness-who has gotten wind of the two German tyrants’ obsession with the Spear and is determined to deny both of them a symbol that has led in the past to so much bloodshed.

Churchill enlists his Scottish goddaughter Mattie McGary, an adventure-seeking photojournalist for the Hearst media empire, to embark upon a quest to find the Spear and vindicate the vision of her late grail-scholar father. He also persuades law professor Bourke Cockran, Jr., a former military intelligence agent and Mattie’s lover, to represent a US company in Germany targeted by a Nazi extortion racket in Munich.

Mattie’s quest leads her to a mysterious villa in Egypt and then to a stronghold high in the Austrian Alps where she is in danger from religious fanatics sworn to protect the Spear as well as Hitler’s SS and the ruthless leader of her own expedition who is both secretly working for the Kaiser and determined to seduce a vulnerable Mattie who mistakenly believes Cockran has left her for another woman. Learning that Mattie’s life is in peril, Cockran mounts a desperate airborne mission to rescue the woman he loves.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book by Will Shelton

Investing In Your Health… You’ll Love The Returns, by Will Shelton, is an insightful and innovative look at how we can improve our personal health.

Flushing, NY, USA — Will Shelton’s Investing In Your Health… You’ll Love The Returns examines current diets to help you make decisions about your eating style, as well as taking a look at sleep patterns in association with our overall health.

Health and physical education warrant a bigger role in our children’s overall health and well-being. One of the chapters is entitled: Games People Play, which focuses on games (like football, baseball, basketball, and soccer) you played growing up. Will Shelton is deeply concerned that some neighborhoods, including parks are too violent for youth to play in. He presents some innovative ideas that can help curtail violence in neighborhoods.

“We need to bring back pride as a core value in some neighborhoods, so youth have a vested interest in their respective neighborhoods. This can be done by creating jobs, safe parks, and recreation/academic centers. Some of our schools can have impactful improvements with better training of teachers, principals (including improved school curriculum), and better trained supportive school staff. There should be an emphasis on After-School Programs, like homework assistance programs, mentorship programs, violence prevention programs and sports programs. Sports can be a valuable link to children doing well academically. In addition, better training of police to dramatically stop how guns, other weapons, and drugs enter neighborhoods.” ~ Will Shelton

Jakarta Film Awards Celebrates Indonesian Cultural Park Anniversary

Jakarta, Indonesia — Jakarta Film Awards (JFA) just announced their lineups for this year. The international film festival held its Awards Ceremony at the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, the Indonesian Cultural Park, celebrating the 43rd anniversary of the National Park. The Awards Ceremony is a blast with red carpets, and crowds flooded packed the place. Kings and queens of Indonesia, many ambassadors, artists, filmmakers, and cultural society attended the big event.

This year, Jakarta Film Awards received 251 films from all around the world. Four films from different countries compete for the Best Film. Here are the nominees:

Give Me the Sun directed by Ban ZhongYi, a documentary about seven aging Chinese women whose bodies and minds were irrevocably scarred by the unspeakable brutality they suffered during World War II, when they were often gang-raped for months until their families could ransom them. Some were lured into sexual slavery by locals working for the Japanese Army, who promised them work in factories or hospitals; others were simply abducted and enslaved in the nearest comfort stations.

The American War, directed by an American veteran of the Iraq War, Dr. Daniel Bernardi, tells the story of the Vietnam War from the perspective of six Vietcong veterans: a soldier, an officer, an informant, a guerilla, a My Lai survivor and the leader of the Long Hair (all women) army. Using rarely seen North Vietnamese archival footage, animated illustrations and interviews set in homes, villages and prisons, The American War gives voice and character to Vietcong veterans.

The Eve directed by Luca Machnich is a short film that tells a story about a young boy who dreams to meet the Santa Claus. This semi-horror film is chosen because the complexity of the mixed color made every frame of this film beautiful yet creepy.

The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) directed by Korean director Inchun Oh tells the story of the most dangerous zone in the world, which was established on July 27, 1953, when the Armistice Agreement was signed during the Korean War. This film stars Joo Min-ha who played as a female officer who tried to catch a jailbreaker in DMZ.

Michael directed by Satrajit Sen is a Bengali film that revolves around a person working man who dreams to be a film director.

Among the VVIP guests of the event are: the king and queen of Keraton Amarta Bumi, Sri Anglung Prabu Punta Djajanagara Cakrabumi Girinata and Kanjeng Ratu Dinar Retno Djenoli; King of Tallo, Makassar, Haji Andi Abdul Rauf Maro Daeng Marewa; Sultan and Queen of Indrapura Indra Oesman and Triliyanti; Prince of War of Indrapura, Ir.
