The Night Wolves are a Russian biker gang. Their rallies and bike shows run on state TV and Putin gave members medals for their contributions to the annexation of Crimea.

Trump is now openly calling for a biker gang of his own. Is this the real Russia connection or is it simply more theatrical ambiguity?

True Lessons (False Alarm! part xi)
I set out on this False Alarm! journey with a quest to figure out how to better deal with this blurry line between fiction and reality. Phase Three of False Alarm! begins with a return to this question… can fiction help us see the truth? , Nuclear expert tired of people ignoring his direct warnings, thinks it can– and he just wrote a novel – a fictional account of what led to North Korea bombing America.
I also recently came across a non fiction book, a book that argues it is Logic that will enable us to better deal with our new reality wants us to think about logic in a brand new way. Plus ToE’s Andrew Callaway gives us an update on our False Alarm! Hero Stormy Daniels.
