02/06/74 – 15/11/74
For all those readers and followers of the Underground Broadcast of the Seattle World News we are sorry to report but do to the recent UCAS restrictions and signal blocking we are unable to broadcast or update any news reports to this website. For those interested in the truth behind the news outages and the reality of what going on in the nation and the world…..please turn on the old AM stations of Mr. Boston, Mr. Vegas, Socrates and Howling Mad the Truth behind the Federal District. These old Disc Jockeys can still broadcast beyond the UCAS media black out and their reports are creditable and without bias.
Again we in the Seattle World News apologise for this inconvenience and will resume normal broadcasting one the blackout is lifted or our pirates can find away to connect to the server under the blackout. This is the final straw and the UCAS has crossed the line…..the people should never be without the news and the media and we journalists will continue working to bring you the news through other media outlets until we can once again take to the trideo and the matrix.
Well readers and fans of the Seattle World News it seems that we have found a hole in the black out and have once again resumed the pirated broadcast reporting of the Truth Behind the News….the News they don’t want you to hear.
First and foremost there is allot to report but I will leave out most of the news from the blacked out months seeing that you have already heard those stories from either the physical printed pages we sent out or the radio broadcasts of Mr. Boston, Mr. Vegas, Socrates or Howling Mad; so without further interruption here is the news from 01/11/74 till 15/11/74….or as Mr. Boston would say “Well looks like’s it’s time for me to put my newsman fedora on….here are the current headlines.”
For starters mid October 2074 Presidential candidate Lyndon Kingsbury was assassinated during a debate by legendary assassin Bleach live on camera; leaving his running mate River Welsh to stand as the Presidential candidate for the Freedom Party. Lyndon was the current acting President of the UCAS after the multiple assassinations earlier this year; River would be sworn into office before his friend was carried away, many feared a retributive assault from the Freedom Patriots seeing that Lyndon was the older brother of General Archibald Kingsbury. The Patriot command didn’t unlawfully assault the UCAS and held true to his brothers legacy of unification and talks of peace within the UCAS; River Welsh would announce later that day that he wasn’t going to be seeking election as he was only running to help support his long time friend Lyndon and without Lyndon at the helm he didn’t feel it to be proper to continue. He wished the people the very best and would be grieving with the nation over the death of his friend.
The Freedom Party would announce their newest candidate to replace Lyndon and River, it would be former Seattle Judge Oliver Jamestown McKeen and Former Confederate Ambassador August Prichard; many political annalists where dumbfounded by the choice of two Confederates as there selection to replace New England native Lyndon and UCAS Senator River Welsh. Though after reviewing McKeen’s political record and his public address’s the cynic’s would be satisfied that McKeen was the right choice for the Presidential seat and well Prichard…that’s another story all together.
The Next few weeks were rampant with political advertisement and mud slinging as the Democracy Party would bolster their newest candidates Linda Harvard and Steven Dartmouth….in what would seem to be a one sided election the Democracy Party would spend twenty times the money that the Freedom Party would spend on political advertisement and when the smoke would clear on election day 2074 the people of the UCAS’s voice would be heard loud and clear as the Freedom Party McKeen and Prichard would win in a total landslide victory with a clean sweep of the UCAS in a victory never seen since the election of President George Washington.
Harvard and Dartmouth would concede early in the night to McKeen and Prichard but sadly that wasn’t the last we would hear from the Democracy Party and during the McKeen victory party a band of masked gunmen would assault the Regency in the Federal District and begin to open fire with automatic weapons and rush the stage in an attempt to assassinate McKeen and Prichard. Do to the quick thinking of the Federal District Police Department and the quick actions of both McKeen and Prichard igniting their Presidents Men’s sabres the gunmen would be quickly dispatched with the arrest of both Linda Harvard and George Jones. We would learn on that night that President Elect Oliver McKeen and Vice President Elect would be members of the not so secret order of Presidents Men with August as well being a Kingsman.
Their quick actions would save countless lives and as well warm the hearts of the people further, thus securing their reelection in 2078 long before they are sworn in. We would come to learn from the Department of Defence that Linda Harvard and George Jones are part of a order within the terrorist cell Free Bird known as the Committee and their hangings are scheduled for 31/12/74 time and location has not been given nor has a location been announced for their executions. According to Department of Defence Spokesman Mr. Eric Peterson their hangings will be recorded on trideo disc and than uploaded to the matrix for a free download after the fact do to national security as Free Bird is a serious terrorist threat to all free men and women.
15/11/74 – 14/12/74
On the evening of November 15th the nation and the world would be stunned and shocked by the blatant attacks by Death’s Hand Supreme Commander Alexander Church that would stun the world as his military would launch simultaneous attacks on the cities of Seattle, Boston, Richmond, London, Federal District, Boston Common Wealth, Portland Oregon, Moscow, Egypt, Albany, Berlin, Belfast, Sydney and Manchester England. The Deaths Hand satellite MERV strike would be followed by a ground assault in the UCAS, CSA, United Kingdom and Russia while most of these strikes and ground assaults would be stopped by area defences such as the Common Wealth of Boston, Moscow, Belfast, Portland and Manchester the other locations would not be so lucky and death and destruction would come swift and without rest.
The affected areas would be under a grand assault from all directions and the fighting would last for weeks in most locations with others ending quickly in only a few days or even a few hours for Egypt, Berlin and Sydney. The UCAS and her ally the United Kingdom would not be so lucky and the battle would rage on for weeks leaving hundreds of thousands killed or wounded and billions in property damage; for the first time in recorded history rebel and loyalist would stand back to back fighting for freedom and their way of life against the Deaths Hand.
The Freedom Patriots would send aid to the Federal District and other affected areas, while the Patriots sub group known as the Railroad would help refuges escape the war torn territories to safety; the Brotherhood of Mercenaries would set up MASH units throughout the nation to lend medical aid to the people and for the first time in many decades the Storm Riders would ride together once again and take on the Deaths Hand where ever they stood. In the Untied Kingdom Lord Neely would take command of the Royal Marines once again and command the eastern front and Welsh Baron Richard Longshanks would stand as a one man army against the invading Deaths Hand forces trying to invade Wales. The Confederates would unite to push the Hand out of Richmond while Confederate trapper Norris Davenport would apprehend Deaths Hand General Seth Mackintosh.
In Seattle the battle would be waged in Downtown, the Judaical District, The Waterways and Lynnwood; the teams the Tribe, The Harbingers, The Wolf Pack, The Mariners, The Rattlers, The Dirty Dozen and The Old Guard would take to the streets to help fight in the name of freedom. In Downtown they would aided by the unlikely might of Tracy Appleton, Ralph Lindel, Herschel Meisner, Jacob Sweeney, The One Man Army Klaus Eisenberg and HRM Assassins Neo, Scorpion, Locust and the Fiddler. This unlikely band of legendary terrorists and rebels would stand true against countless odds and they would make quick death for the Deaths Hand forces in Downtown.
Though Lynnwood would not be so lucky as the town of and for the Krieghoff’s would be the greatest hit receiving fire from the SOL systems and hundreds of well armed Hand enforcers, the Krieghoff’s security details would be outgunned and outnumbered and it would cost them many within their family and many innocent lives living within the suburban district; many untrained citizens would take up arms in revolt against the Deaths Hand and they would end up paying with their lives. The town of Lynnwood would end up being aided by Tutor Yates, Oliver Jamestown McKeen, Tayler Sturmridder, Jeffrey Ashmore, Woody Brunswick, Fredrick Mosley, Montgomery Hilliard and Rodger McMillion. The added aid from these legends would secure Lynnwood from the Deaths Hand but not at a great cost to the district and her people; the casualty report is high within Lynnwood and so is the total destruction as entire blocks and neighbourhoods where destroyed by the onslaught from the SOL systems.
The Waterways would be fought be a joint military effort commanded by Rough Rider General and Harbinger Commander Ralph Rivers and with his quick thinking and military tact he was able to fortify and entrap the Deaths Hand forces and remove the offending forces with extreme prejudice just what we have come to expect and love from a Patriot Special Forces Commander; the Waterways district would also be assaulted by the Saviours and Frogger’s Youth but do to an unlikely alliance with Director Jarred Mitchell those unskilled units would fail to catch the Harbingers, Wolf Pack, Mariners, Rattlers, Devil’s Reject’s, Ruination and Despicable’s off guard and with the magical aid of Governor Barney Pilgrim of the CLRA (Caribbean League Royal Army) the end was truly over before it began as the voodoo magic would unleash hell upon the Waterways and the Deaths Hand Forces just adding Alexander’s fallen to the ranks of Governor Pilgrim’s ever growing horde at Black Gate Cemetery.
The Judaical District would end up being defended by the Devil Rats, Regulators, Savages, Cowboys from Hell, Second Hand Devils and the Valkyries; Needless to say this was a sight to see outlaws and bikers fighting back to back with the Seattle Police Department against the cities greatest threat since General O’Brian. The fighting in the Judaical District would be the swiftest of the fight for Seattle but would end up being the fiercest and it wouldn’t be till Frank McDougall, Ronald Blackthorn, Harold Reynolds, Robert Grant, Richard Barnabe and David Klopeck would arrive to lend a hand the fighting would quickly shift and the PD would end up detaining the invading Deaths Hand military troops; many of the surrendering Hand troops would end up being assassinated by Skip Boardman and Morris Eccles. The PD would not approve of blatant murder of surrendering troops but being out gunned and surrounded by outlaws and rebels they choose to ignore a handful of cold blooded killings….it’s only the Deaths Hand anyways, those arrested on that night will be hanged in the coming days and months without trial and after interrogation according to Seattle Police Department Chief of Detectives Benjamin Mathews.
The War itself would wage on for multiple weeks in other areas and eventually on December 14th 2074 the Death’s Hand would surrender and retreat under the directive of Christopher Mulligan. During this time the Hand itself would go through a internal conflict as many within the leadership would evade capture by the Hand assassins and join the fray as a defender of decency, this would cause a power vacuum to form within the Deaths Hand as regional generals scurried for control of the vacant regions and regional enforcers jumped at the chance to steal control. Deaths Hand Supreme Admiral Peter Macbeth would stake claim as the new Supreme Commander and according to sources close to the Hand he would have any solider, commander or enforcer that was actively or knowingly involved in Alexander’s Blitzkrieg of 2074. This has many in the Hand petrified to move and for now it seems that Macbeth’s new iron grasp of the Hand will be well received by the world’s police and rebel forces; Peter Macbeth has promised to hand over any guilty members to the proper authority for trial or show verifiable proof of their execution as the Norwegian Admiral promises to halt any further global conquest and seeing that Admiral Macbeth is a man of his frozen word this Viking can be trusted and seeing he is as well hunting for Christopher Mulligan one can only hope for now. The Deaths Hand is not out of the water, just waiting now for a list of the guilty within the order as Macbeth’s forces track down those returning home after the conflict.
The Deaths hand would receive many resignations just before or during the invasion from their top officials and that list includes
High Commander Martin Hakett aka War Machine
High Commander Tudor Yates aka Professor
High Commander Adolf Ackerman aka Dictator
Inner Circle Member Ralph Lindel aka Ambassador
Inner Circle Member Lewis Gray aka Acme
Inner Circle Member Remington Walsh aka Librarian

Regional General known only as Achilles
This is the list of known hand members that fled the Deaths Hand just before the worldwide assault was launched either they left on their own or where forced out do to an attempted assassination or arrest for treason under the directive of Supreme Commander Alexander Church.
<<Now the above mentioned members might not have been involved in the worldwide assault and some actually aided to affected areas and defended their people from the military they once served; this doesn’t give them a free pass as they are all wanted war criminals and should be treated as such. Their aid should only spare them the gallows pole but not life within prison and for some like the High Commanders and Regional Generals they shouldn’t be allowed to skate so easily and they should keep their date with the hangman for the crimes against humanity.>>
Alexander Church has been reported as killed in action at the hands of his former friends and allies High Commanders Martin Hakett and Adolf Ackerman footage of his death was received to the Department of Defence by cyber camera download of both Hakett and Ackerman showing the death of both Alexander and his personal guard and assassin Edwin Heyward. This footage has been shared and verified as factual with multiple agencies and news outlets thus verifying Admiral Peter Macbeth’s claim that his Hand is not Alexander’s and the guilty will be hunted down and punished. With the death of Alexander verified the people can rest easier going into the winter holidays knowing that the madman has met his maker and is rotting in hell.
02/74 – 11/74
A bit of back news but still just as important in April of 2074 the Mile High City would suffer a great tragedy and become yet another major UCAS city to be demolished during the revolution, Denver would be destroyed by the remnants of General James O’Brian’s specialised military task force. This assault would happen by surprise and leave the city sunken within the plateau it once sat upon, millions would perish in a instant and only a handful would escape the devastation. Many that escaped would be former Denver Guard Members that would become refuges here in Seattle and form a team known as Ruination lead by Dennis “Morgan” Holmes and seeking refuge within the Waterways with the Harbingers and under the command of General Ralph Rivers. The Members of Ruination seek a blood price on the UCAS for the death of their countryman and citizens of their once home of Denver Colorado.
General James O’Brian would be assassinated by members of the Unforgiven after being trapped like a rat by the Harbingers, Wolverines and Mr. Black and the order of execution given by the Noel Forscythe’s daughter Farrus Forscythe who felt it only fitting that her father be the one who brings the General to his demise seeing it was James who double crossed the Unforgiven and attempted to execute Noel by firing squad in the 2020’s. Justice was served under the watchful eye of the Harbingers, Dervish of the Wolverines, Mr. Black, Duke and the Unforgiven and his body was left to rot on the banks of the Emerald River; his head would be severed post mortem by Farrus and given to Duke as verification of death. The footage of his execution would be released in April of 2074 and it would show the witnesses gleefully mocking the captured and beaten General and ignoring his pleas for a military trial; Goblin of the Unforgiven would be heard saying “Were was your mercy for Noel, all those years ago.” and the Weatherman was captured saying “Ghost, you were one of us and he was your friend and you still betrayed us….take your punishment like a man not a child.” Mr. Black stated “You executed my kid brother as he cried on the pole, now it’s only fitting you die here blubbering like a child…..this is your fate and time for you to reap what you sow you bastard.” James O’Brian would die begging for his life and for a trial as the Unforgiven would open fire into the Generals body and once James fell dead Farrus would tear his head from his body and hand it to Duke who tucked it into a bag and headed back to his waiting river boat. Dervish of the Wolverines would cut his uniform off of him and take his patches as a trophy and further desecrate the body by lighting her match off the dead generals ass and smoke her cigar in celebration. Before leaving him to rot on the bank of the river in the mud they moved his decapitated remains away from the waters edge as so he wouldn’t be washed away during heavy rains. This footage was so disturbing that many media outlets choose to not show the entire thing and only announce the murder of General James O’Brian and those that did show it in it’s completion would receive both praise and death threats from loyal upset citizens; the Generals murder is the most pirated video on the matrix today.
Within the Federal District after the ending of the conflict with the Deaths Hand the UCAS Military was giving a state of the nation address as the newly appointed High Commander of the Special Forces General Ronald Davids was giving his address to the many anointed media outlets….Seattle World News was not invited. His address was interrupted by Special Director Jarred Mitchell of the Freedom Task Force, General Davids would welcome Mitchell to join him on the stage and speak on behalf of the Task Force and there current success rate in capturing the rebels and bringing justice to the UCAS. Jarred Mitchell looking worse for ware and not well kept, pressed and polished like he normally is, having shown further ageing in his hair and face approached the podium he paused just before the stage and reached behind his head and ripped off a weird looking mechanical device and looked up at the camera and stated “Fuck You O’Brian, Fuck You Salazar, Fuck You Legion…..I am free and my thoughts are mine alone!” The media, military and staff looked shocked by Director Jarred Mitchell’s outburst as he reached into his suit pocket and pulled out and ignited a white President’s Men’s sabre and cut down General Ronald Davids in a single strike and than turned his attack onto the approaching guards and with ease he would bring down dozens of trained soldiers and aids; the media and other guests would flee in horror to the demonstration of treason. Director Mitchell would turn to the camera before it went dark and publicly address Colonial, Gargoyle, Mr. Black, Watcher, Director, Anchor and Winter Rat and apologise for what he has done and he is no longer the puppet of Free Bird and he was mistaken and should never have agreed to have worked for them.” He also stated that he will remain at the scene of his most recent murder and await his fate whatever it maybe, he would not resist and accept any fate they have in store and even if that meant he was to swing or be cut down where he stood he deserved everything and more; Director Mitchell than put his sabre on the floor and sat down the feed was cut and went dark.
According to Eric Peterson of the Department of Defence Jarred Mitchell was taken into custody and brought to the Black Site known as the Post Office for interrogation and his fate is currently uncertain; though my contacts have also reported that Director Mitchell has not only murdered General Ronald Davids and the guards and aids at the press conference, he as well butchered and gassed the entire Freedom Task Force that wouldn’t give up the fight for the UCAS and those that would leave he warned them that if they ever take up arms again against the rebels they would be hunted to the ends of the earth and he would make certain that not only did they suffer a slow death their families, friends and relatives would also be hunted and executed as he had given the order for total cleansing and if a single rebel is hurt by a member of the Task Force and he would hand over all his documents to the rebels once arrested they would have no where to hide.
Mitchell currently sits within the Post office awaiting his fate at the hands of the people he hunted and double crossed; Seattle World News will report more on Director Jarred Mitchell as it comes in.
Seattle has turned it’s holiday lights on and all Winter Holiday Festivals are still currently planned as a way to show the people that Seattle will prevail through these most recent tragic times, the cities landmark the Space Needle is scheduled to reopen it’s doors on December 31st 2074 and is currently selling tickets for it’s New Years Bash at 150 Credits each and tickets are available through the box office on the matrix.
