“Good evening this is Addison Mayweather coming to you live from the front lines of the Alexandrian Conflict. The current offensive began just before midnight on the 17th of June 2076 and has been ongoing since. It is currently 2100 hours and the fighting has been going on now for close to forty-eight hours with no signs of letting up, the Axis forces have been putting up stiff resistance against the 8th Mountain Division as they attempt to gain further ground.
“What we are witnessing is the true horrors of war as the…Sorry I am having trouble with my sound equipment as the ADF continues to unleash their cannonade from behind me. This is the real deal people…this is war and this is what happens when diplomacy fails. I have recently spoke with Chief Redeye and Chief Jade. According to the two leaders, peace talks once again failed as the Axis leaders refused to relent and come to aggregable terms for honest negations.
“This means that the fighting will continue and so will the causalities on both sides as the Axis and Allied forces collide. This is not a simply boarder dispute as the Axis are claiming. This people is actual war and this will leave countless lives shattered…Fuck…! I’m Hit…Medic!!
“Why is your favorite journalist out here on the lines and not taking cover from a command bunker? Well long and the short is, I want to bring the truth to you. I want to show you the grit and grim of war. This is not a video game, this is not a movie, this is real, and I have really been shot again!!! Where the fuck is that medic? Ed-One get a close up on that tank while we wait for the field medics…What the hell is that? Oh my God…are you seeing that? Seriously what the fuck…? I need to.”
“I am still here, needed to change locations as we were under heavy bombardment and… ED-One keep the camera on the fucking tank and not me!! Zoom in on that side panel…Fuck I’m hit again!! God Damn It!!! Medic!!!! Okay what Ed-One is trying to show you, I will pull up a split screen…If you look closely you can see the corporate markers of Biotechnica Corporation. As we all know Biotechnica doesn’t deal in arms so this is from their personal security division…Is that the Desert Wars emblem…? Ed-One get a close up of that…”
“Okay I’m back. We are under heavy fire and it seems that Biotechnica has thrown themselves into this war just like Aries Arms. You are witnessing war crimes unfold live on your television as Biotechnica is using anti-vehicle arms directly against the soldiers and not the equipment…Medic!! Ed-One keep rolling…”
You watch as Addison, badly wounded runs into the field. There are explosions around him as Biotechnica tanks bombard multiple fireteams that are pinned down. Mortars are exploding nearby and all hell is breaking loose as he grabs a wounded solider by his straps and begins to drag him back to safety. Screaming for medical, it is obvious as per the articles of war he is unarmed and yet thrusting himself into danger to pull the wounded out of a most certain death.
Ed-One catches Biotechnica armored troops launching miniature chemical canisters that spew forth a sickly green gas that quickly fills the craters and holes. Addison is heard screaming for the troops to mask up and he can be seen quickly putting on his own breath mask. The camera keeps rolling and Ed-One follows Addison as he runs back and dives into a crater to avoid a nearby mortar strike. You again witness Addison land on a wounded solider from the UCAS that is having trouble putting on his mask, the ground rumbling as the tanks advance.
Another explosion that launches dirt, rock, metal and shrapnel. Addison appears to take another wound as metal fragments can be seen sticking out of his back. The solider that he is helping is struggling to breath as the green gas rolls over them both. Addison gets the mask on him, grabs the soldier by the straps rolls over and begins dragging him out of the crater. As Addison lays on his back using his legs to push his way out of the crater and towards safety, his labored voice can be heard through the mask screaming for medical. Once he clears the crater, bullets impact all around Addison with a few finding their home in his legs.
Ed-One zooms in as the medical team is running towards the downed reporter and soldier. You can now see a large piece of shrapnel sticking deep inside Addison’s left hip and others penetrating his legs and ankles as well as clear bullet holes in his boots. The medical team grab the badly wounded solider and begin lifesaving work on him. As the others turn to help Addison, Ed-One lets loose with a nervous sounding electrical whirl. as you see the reporter kip-up onto his one semi-good leg and push the two medics away away from him. He is rewarded with a bullet through the shoulder.
Addison starts to dive, but the Biotechnica Tank bulldozes through the crater. It crushes multiple solider in its wake and Addison’s foot is nearly torn off as he gets sliced by the edge of the tanks tread and launched. Ed-One lets out another whirl of electronic sounds as it makes it way towards Addison who is lying unconscious on the ground nearly 50 yards from where he was thrown. His leg is busted, his left foot resting a full 90 degrees in the wrong direction, he is not moving. There is a large explosion again and the feed goes out.
Once the feed returns Addison is awake again dragging his left leg and in extreme pain. His helmet is gone, his hair is matted in blood as it pours down his face. Blood that is mixing with the now liquified cholerine gas. In his right hand he has a downed solider by the straps that had been partially run over by the tank. There is another large explosion and the screen goes out.
The camera turns back on and Addison is seen being loaded into a helicopter barely alive. The medical staff can’t believe how this reporter is still alive, let alone partially conscious and writhing in agony. The camera feed ends with Addison looking at Ed-One and saying in a gravelly voice with labored breathing. “This is Addison Mayweather signing off for now”. As the feed ends, he can be heard asking about the soldiers he was with.
Then it cuts back to the studio.
19/06/2076 – 23/12/2076:
The war in Alexandria has been ongoing now for over a year with no signs of slowing down. The draft is in full force as the most recent graduates from boot camp find themselves being deployed to one of the many fronts within this conflict, many figured that this war would be over by Thanksgiving and now it looks like the soldiers will be celebrating yet another Christmas season in hell. The war would take a brutal change on June 17th, 2076 when the Alexandrian Defense Force (ADF) would launch a major offensive against the Axis forces of the Salish-Shidhe. This offensive would be one of the most brutal of the war and would use the combined might of all the Allied forces in an attempt to punch through the formidable forces dug in at the wood line on the Eastern Ridge.
This territory is one that the ADF has been fighting hard to take as it will give them direct access to the roads, trails and pathways within the Salish-Shidhe granting them the ability to move further troops and equipment unmolested by the Axis forces. Fighting has as well ramped up on both the Southern and Northern Ridges with far better success as the Axis have to redirect troops to help fortify the Eastern Ridge. The Axis forces would not be prepared for the tactile might of the ADF’s southern ridge as General Maxwell Irving would be given command over both the Southern Ridge and the Southeastern sector of the Eastern Front.
Under Irving’s command his army has been able to gain further ground and as well push the Axis Forces further from the Alexandrian southern border gaining multiple territories, though not without a significant cost in wounded and dead. What is the price of a mile? Is the question many generals need to calculate and this is one price that is paid in both money and the blood of men, for Irving and his men this price has been costly as his line has been under the heaviest resistance including aid from Aries Arms.
Irving has captured multiple towns within the Salish-Shidhe including Harvest Ville, Youngstown, Newville, and Cascade. These towns where under the control of the Axis forces and being used as a waypoint for the many direct assaults on the people of Alexandria. With the capturing of these towns Irving has pushed the Axis forces out of the Southern Ridge by a considerable amount of distance and as well spared the citizens of being subjugated further by the Axis Forces.
The ADF has authorized any citizen of those towns to become citizens of Alexandria if they so choose, and many of the citizens of those impacted towns would willingly volunteer for active duty against their former government. Many of the citizens are simply fed up with being subjugated, forgotten, and sold off to the corporations and would gladly take up arms against their former government as many were wanting to become part of Alexandria. The capturing of these towns would not be an easy fight as the Salish-Shidhe would put up stiff resistance and would fight bravely for many months till they would be forced to retreat further into the Salish-Shidhe after many months of steady air assaults, bombardments, and the steady pressure being applied by the 167th Lightning.
Urban combat is one of General Irving’s specialties and his true skills where put on display throughout the summer months as the 167th would begin their urban assault within the various towns. The capturing of the town of Cascade would earn Irving his forth star officially as he has been commanding as a four star general this entire time and he has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is more than qualified to command multiple Army Groups and as the war rages on we need to watch this commander and his command team.
On June 17th only hours before the offensive would begin the 15th Island Corps would be given a new Captain that would be put in command of the Forward Observation Company of the 15th Island Corps. CPT Orson White would be given the command after the death of CPT Walter Howell and upon his arrival he would learn the valuable lesson that FOC would be suffering morale issues and a breakdown in leadership as the acting CO 2LT George Johnson would be greatly under qualified and be costing the company to suffer heavy losses and refused to alter his tactics and mission objectives even in the face of great loss.
With the arrival of CPT White things would change and 2LT Johnson would be physically upset of loosing his command position to a former Confederate General. Reports indicated that do to breakdowns in morale and leadership many of the men would be upset with the arrival of the hard nosed, no bull shit, maverick commander….many of the men still thinking Orson was the same old raciest and bigoted SOB that he is known for. This would create a rupture within the FOC as the platoon and squad leaders remand divided further causing casualties and failed mission objectives.
It would seem that CPT Orson White would be in for a struggle to gain control over his Company and as well earn the respect of the men as many didn’t like 2LT Johnson but to them he was the better of two evils. During the assault CPT White would prove himself with multiple successful forward assaults, showing his drive, and dedication to the cause and his men. He would bring multiple successes and take the strain off his superior officers during the major offensive.
Platoon Leader 2LT George Johnson would fail to follow CPT White’s orders during a forward advance and this would cause the 15th Island to suffer heavy casualties, he would as well appear to crack under the pressure of being out of the command bunker and fail to redirect or change the orders he had given even when directly confronted by Squad leaders SSG’s Ashmore and Greenspan. Leading the NCO’s to seize command and in a show of dedication, training, and exceptional leadership they would be able to oust 2LT Johnson from his command and gain control over the platoon and after some time they would be successful at capturing and destroying multiple enemy assets.
2LT George Johnson would suffer a show of cowardice as he would flee from the battlefield and attempt to desert from the army. In his attempted desertion he would shoot CPT Arthur Crane and SSG Bernard Beachworth of the 51st Iron Wolves. 2LT George Johnson would end up within hand to hand combat with SSG Bernard Beachworth and he would learn a vital lesson, never engage into hand to hand combat with a USMC Marine and one of the Ashen Riders. 2LT George Johnson would be arrested while recovering from surgery after CPT Kyle Finesilver of the 101st MASH unit would file a report with the CPT Sherman Willard of the Criminal Division within the 101st MASH unit.
After a short investigation 2LT George Johnson would be officially charged with Dereliction of Duty, Insubordination, Treason, Desertion, Willful Attempted Murder of a Superior Officer, and Willful Attempted Murder of a Non Commissioned Officer. Johnson would be found guilty on all charges by a military tribunal during his court martial and would be sentenced to death by firing squad and a dishonorable discharge; his sentence was carried out on August 5th 2076 and his remains were shipped back to his family for burial, 2LT George Johnson was only 25 years old at the time of his execution.
CPT Orson White would once again prove that he is an invaluable asset to the 15th Island with his years of experience and his specialty being guerilla warfare and urban warfare. He would be put to the test on the eastern ridge, though through his dedication and having competent NCO’s and team leaders he would allow for the Eastern line to hold it’s ground and slowly gain further ground throughout the next few months. Though as a sign of things to come the UCAS would deploy 2LT David Brown to be his XO and this would be another issue for Orson as he was given yet another incompetent executive officer and one that should not have been deployed to the front lines.
CPT White would end up being stabbed by a member of his provisional unit…CPL Eugene Lowell of the CAS’s 8th infantry would stab the commanding officer in the small of the back as the CO was overlooking the maps and preparing the next maneuver, White would subdue his attacker all the while his XO simply looked on in shock. It would some time before White felt he was able to leave the command bunker and seek medical attention. He would strip 2LT Brown of his rank and put SSG Ashmore in command after they returned from a successful intelligence gathering mission and seek medical aid before heading to HQ to report his units findings.
2LT David Brown was brought up on insubordination charges as well dereliction of duty charges and would end up being drummed out of the UCAS Army and receive a dishonorable discharge, CPL Eugene Lowell would be charged with Willful Attempted Murder of a Superior Officer, Treason, and involvement in a hate group as a member of the KKK; CPL Lowell was arrested by the CSA Military Police division and tried by court martial with the hate crimes add on, he would be found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging.
CPT White hasn’t had very much luck with his XO’s though it hasn’t slowed the Captain from staying the course and he did state that attempts on his life would be something he would be prepared for after he walked away from the CAS military and the KKK earlier in June. Though it seems that this CO hasn’t given up on the war as he would get stitched up and return to the command bunker within the day of his leaving for medical treatment. As off the writing of this article CPT Orson White has yet to receive a competent XO and that’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon, seeing many of the junior officers are coming fresh from command school and have once again earned the nickname of butter bar.
Addison Mayweather would win yet another Pulitzer Prize for his gritty and real reporting from the Alexandrian Conflict, this will make his 16th Pulitzer for excellence in journalism. His award was received by his old friend Brian Johnson of CSB Broadcasting as Addison was unable to attend the ceremony do the ongoing conflict in Alexandria, reports indicate that he is on his way to earning his 17th next year for his continued coverage of the war and his downright straight shooting reporting. It is rumored that he is in the running to nominated for a Nobel Prize for his Humanitarian Segments called “The Price of War” and his coverage of the Christmas Day Massacre 2075.
Thanks to Addison’s reporting we would learn that not only would Aries Arms be directly involved in this war, we would discover that Biotechnica would thrust themselves into the conflict. He would bring to the spot light the horrors of corporate involvement and expose Biotechnica’s direct evil as they unloaded countless chemical agents onto the fronts from their newest military creation a micro launcher that would deploy a chemical attack 200 times more powerful than the large bombs and much shorter duration. Thus allowing troops to move through the impacted area after a few minutes and not having to fear a sudden shift in the wind.
We would come to learn that not only have the corporations violated the terms of the North American Alliance by establishing headquarters inside the Salish-Shidhe they have as well been helping them violate the terms of demilitarizing. This is something that the Sons of Liberty within the Common Wealth have been warning us about for decades, yes the native lands were forbidden to form a legitimate military and rely simply on security patrols and tribal guards. It seems that the warnings from the Southwest Trinity have as well been ignored. To date the only tribal land to obey to the rules of the treaty have been the Sioux Nation, the Apache and Cherokee have as well followed the guidelines and only formed tribal guard units and have been funding these units themselves.
Now the Sioux Wildcats and Apache Renegades are some of the nations finest warriors and best trained hunters and scouts, but they are funded by the people and not through the government or corporations. One can argue that the Apache Renegades are government funded seeing they have joined up with the Southwest Trinity, though that means they are not directly connected to the Pueblo Nation and simply an attached unit of the Trinity. The Sioux are totally independent and have been fending off attacks since the inception of the Sioux Nation, they are currently directly allied with Alexandria and have been welcomed allies in this engagement.
Looks like we all have egg on our faces as we can now say “You were right.” when it comes to the warnings of Archibald Kingsbury. We have learned that Biotechnica has established corporate towns and production facilities within the Salish-Shidhe and has been using basically slave labor to produce the many medical and cybernetic supplies we all use on a daily basis. They as well have been outfitting the Salish-Shidhe with a military under the radar and even when warned by Chief Redeye about the Salish-Shidhe military the rest of the North American Alliance simply ignored him.
Scouts from the ADF, Hawaiian Republic and the UCAS have located one of the Biotechnica work towns and as well uncovered the presence of a large military encampment about 30 kilometers from the current Alexandrian Boarder. A counter offensive was launched by the Allied Forces against the encampment and according to the current reporting the fighting was intense but after many days of cannonades, bombardments and airstrikes the camp was softened enough for the 8th Mountain Division to begin it’s offensive into the once secure and secluded region to march on in and so would begin the fighting to secure that region and capture the territory for the Allied Forces.
Peace talks have simply broken down with the Axis Forces refusing to come to the table and have only stated that the worst has yet to come. This should have everyone worried seeing that as of the writing of this article the war has been raging for just over a year and we have seen a total disregard for the articles of war at the hands of the Axis Forces. They are purposely attacking medical units, killing doctors, murdering journalists, and butchering civilians. We are watching war crimes unfold daily on the television and this is not the worse…seriously what more can they do, they have already deployed chlorine bombs, agent orange, and mustard gas; they have been using heavy artillery and tanks directly against the men and have been enslaving their citizens and forcing them to fight in this war.
Reports from the Waterways Military Compound state that Archibald Kingsbury has officially declared war on the Axis Forces and the Common Wealth have officially entered the war against the Axis. Now the Sons of liberty have already been fighting as mercenaries and rebels, but as of Thanksgiving Day 2076 they have entered the war officially and General Kingsbury has moved multiple Army Regions to reinforce the Sioux Nation, King County, Alexandria, and as well he moved an Army Region north towards Anchorage to intercept a large troop movement coming down from the Algonkian-Manitou Council.
Admiral Elmer Cadbury of the 4099th Common Wealth Naval Squadron would begin bombarding the capital city of the Salish-Shidhe on November 24th, 2076. They Sons of Liberty’s naval fleet would target direct military targets within the city as they hit multiple power stations in the industrial complex within Bellingham. These attacks would come in the late afternoon hours and would be followed directly up by multiple airstrikes from Common Wealth fighter squadrons, this would leave Bellingham and the surrounding regions without power during the holiday. Many within the Salish-Shidhe are now concerned that the war has come to them and they fear that government has been lying to them about Alexandria.
According to Colonel Lester McCarthy of the Common Wealth Special Operations Brigade he has been working inside Billingham for sometime to uncover the dirty little secrets of the Salish-Shidhe and he would be horrified to learn that the government was working directly alongside Biotechnica and Aries Arms for some time. They would begin to enslave the people and move military equipment and troops into the city months before the official declaration of war. He would as well confirm the reports from the FBI by Special Agent Anthony DiCane that Biotechnica merged with Bio-Corps through a hostile takeover, thus creating Biotechnica Corps.
McCarthy would continue to state that when he arrived in the city for his mission he noticed that the people where being subjugated, denied food, clean water, employment, and access to health care. The city had been divided by sectors and would be colour coded just like New York City and corporations and the government were the kings of the jungle, he stated that it reminded him of Seattle and how it became a megatropolis. McCarthy now commands the Sons of Liberty 3rd Field Army alongside General Humphrey Bowers as they begin a direct offensive to capture the capital city. They are being aided by the many upset and rebelling citizens that have taken up arms to reclaim there home from the corporations, the first shots would be fired on Thanksgiving Day 2076 and this theatre of engagement will not be short nor easy as the Axis Forces are dug in deep and have been reinforced by multiple corporations including Aztechnology.
Aztechnology has already felt the hit to it’s profits since the early days of the war once it’s home nation Aztlan would invade the Southwest Trinity and the CAS through Texas. The company would suffer from protests, production issues, and the destruction and hijacking of it’s shipments. Magical supplies and products produced by Aztechnology have become scarce on the shelves and since have began to fetch a high price on the black market, this would increase the runner activity targeting their supply chains to make a quick buck.
Inside Aztlan itself it’s not going all to well for them either and after nearly a year of direct conflict against the might of the CAS, Southwest Trinity, Caribbean League, Old Mexico and General Graham Drexel’s multiple Army Regents coming north from Central America and with Drexel controlling the Panama Canal Aztlan has been stretched thin. With corporate profits at an all time low and Aztlan being undercut by the Caribbean Leagues own magical supply companies….it will be only a matter of time before they are forced to surrender as the money has stopped flowing and most of their forces deployed within the Alexandrian and Sioux Conflicts.
Aztlan City is as well under direct assault by Lord General Edmund Wellington and his brutal 677th Royal Infantry with Colonel Andrew Yates commanding the 97th Caribbean Death Squad being backed up by 501st Death Troopers being led by Colonel Arnold Malone. Malone who recently retired from the UCAS senate to assume command of the 501st from his brother Grand Admiral Shelby Malone thus allowing Shelby to focus on the Naval defense of the Gulf of Mexico. Grand Admiral Shelby Malone is commanding a fleet within the Gulf that is as well pounding Aztlan’s military forces and sending a never ending stream of airstrikes into the already beaten down nation.
Reports indicate that the 677th have the city fully surrounded and have been chocking the life out of the military forces inside; water, food, healthcare, and power have been cut off from those still inside Aztlan City and with Drexel, the Trinity, and Hawaii’s naval forces directly off it’s western shores and the 501st, Crimson Bloods, and Caribbean League on it’s eastern shores. It will simply be a matter of time before the white flag is flown……The 677th have bombarded Aztlan City with numerous Anti-Magic bombs and have destroyed the main storage hub within the pyramid that stores the blood samples for there dreaded blood magic.
The militia unit known as the Saviors that have plagued the wilds outside of King County and the city of Seattle would engage with the Emerald City Defenders and a unit known as the Tribe during the early days of the war. Reports indicate that a hover tank would bombard the Saviors encampment before deploying members of the Tribe, that would met up with the ECD for what would turn out to be a bloody battle leaving both sides liking there wounds. This fight would take some time as nether side was able to gain the upper hand, that was till the Woodsman would start loosing his paranormal animals to the larger and more powerful ECD shifters Kodiak, Bear, Simba and Salty who would make short work of the paranormal creatures. Owl would be wounded when he swooped into to deploy a Electromagnetic bomb that would render the woodsman disabled as he is a cyber samurai.
Owl would successfully deploy the EMP bomb and limp away before it went off, once the Woodsman was rendered inert his saviors would begin to surrender. When Cowboy and Raven went to detain the Woodsman he would awake and deploy a suicide bomb in an attempt to kill the leaders of the two units. It would be the magical workings of Little John that would deploy a blast barrier to save his friends and family from a most certain death. Cowboy and Raven were airlifted to a nearby MASH unit and reports indicate that they are both recovering from there injuries.
The bomb would as well kill many of the surrendering Saviors, the explosion would be caught on camera by both Little John and Hardwire to be used as evidence. The remaining Saviors where apprehended and handed over to the Seattle Police Departments Sherriff’s Office. The ECD and the Tribe would as well hand over the video evidence of the Saviors assaults and evidence was discovered linking the Saviors with the Axis of Evil, this was as well handed over to the SPD.
Chief Joseph Richardson of the Seattle Police Departments Sherriff’s Office would state on the record “Seeing that these suspects where directly involved within a military engagement and fighting on behalf of a foreign nation and government. They will be handed over to the UCAS Army to stand trial for treason against the UCAS and City of Seattle, I doubt any of them will ever see the light of day again….well besides their date with the firing squad; though that’s for the Court Martial to decide.”
The fighting in the Cascade Orc region of the Salish-Shidhe has been give and take throughout the last year. The Sioux Nation, UCAS, US Elite and Common Wealth forces would be fighting for ground one mile at a time and battles have broken out all throughout that region. The cooperate forces would be a great asset for the Salish-Shidhe as they would not be able to hold of the far superior might of the UCAS and US Elite, the Sioux Nation might not be as big as the other more structured militaries but what they lack in size they make up for in skill.
The Axis forces would assault the city of Butte in a brutal combination of airstrikes and heavy artillery bombardments on December 21st 2076 they would unleash a multitude of chemical strikes directly onto the civilian population as well bomb hospitals, schools, churches, and retail stores killing tens of thousands in a blink as the Mustard Gas and Chlorine would ravage the city. The UCAS and CAS would send aid directly to the city to help the civilians, the bombardments would continue as the rescue crews entered the city to aid the Sioux and UCAS citizens trapped inside.
During this assault the bombardments would slam multiple military encampments within the Sioux Nation with the worst hitting the command bunkers directly. The Salish-Shidhe with the aide of Aries and Biotechnica would deploy multiple bunker busters and fully destroy the head quarters killing many members of the UCAS and US Elite command including General Hershel Horowitz. This would have an opposite affect on the Allied forces as they would simply be driven harder to fight and get payback for the deaths of General Hershel Horowitz and Colonel Reinhold Yule. General Izzy Archer of the Devil Dogs would take up command and after giving a remarkable address to the troops he would unleash hell upon the enemy with his Mobile Battle Fortress (MBF) and his Mobile Battle Tank (MBT).
The Allied Forces would fight long and hard for many days and come December 23rd any lost ground was regained and General Archer would state we will carve across the Salish-Shidhe and take Boise…his call was met with cheers as the Allied forces prepare for a lengthy campaign across the Salish-Shidhe. This is not something that will happen quickly and will take time as it is over 400 miles but if successful it will connect the forces from the Butte with those fighting against the Axis forces within the Tangier and Salish-Shidhe. If anyone can accomplish this it will be General Archer, and he will be met happily by General Martin Hackett who is currently commanding the 187th Field Army of the UCAS Army that is being bolstered by a Brigade of troops from the 67th Stormrider’s.
Well on the home front the war started off very popular and then by June and the start of the draft if would become very unpopular as citizens would begin protesting the war while others saw it as their chance to bring down the Corporations. Though as the months went by and basically everyone knew someone that had been killed, wounded, or disabled and after countless funerals and reports stating that the North American Council needs your help…and so on. The people would become tired of the continued conflict with no end in sight, then once again Addison Mayweather would bring the horrors of the war straight into our living rooms with his joint reporting from the other fronts that would relight the fires of patriotism in the people again.
He would show us the horrors of corporate enslavement, the chemical attacks, and his sheer heroism in the face of grave danger as he would run into a engagement to pull the wounded out and even risk his own life to rescue multiple school children that where being attacked by the Salish-Shidhe. Addison Mayweather is a true hero and has held true to journalists oath to simply report and not not engage, he has been wounded countless times and he keeps going out there to bring us the current events and keep us informed.
It would be the bravery of Addison Mayweather, General Irving who actually gives a damn about his men, Captain White, Lt. Colonel M. Yates, and the heart of Chief Redeye and his people within Alexandria. We all feel like we are part of Alexandria and we want to see the people be able to live in peace once again, we can feel his anger and frustration as well as his sorrow, we can feel the anguish of those within Butte and the people are once again standing united as we head into the second Christmas season within war…a time of year that is for peace on earth and good will to men but has turned into one of the bloodiest conflicts on North American soil.
As of December 23rd, 2076 the total casualties between all fronts and both Allied and Axis forces and citizens has reached over 250,000 dead and many more wounded…how many more need to die before peace is found, well that number can and probably will rise to well above a million dead by the time this is over. So I will leave you with a simple good night and Happy Holidays, please continue to pray for the troops as they will be killing and being killed on Christmas morning…..this war is long from over in this reporters opinion.
It has been brought to our attention here at WKNS 41 through information gathered by a freelance investigative journalist that has been working on this story. We have learned that the long forgotten Cyro Corp is once again back in business and once again up to there nefarious dealings. Cyro Corp was once a Triple A corporation and held the exclusive contract with the UCAS for their Cryogenic Prison Systems, this program would ultimately fail do to the great thaw and end up killing many of the inmates in the process. This was discovered and brought to the publics attention when a innocent man was sentenced to the deep freeze for nearly half a millennia, he would be lucky to survive the freezing process and as well the sudden thaw.
Stewart Park would be sentenced to 500 years with zero chance for parole for the murder of his family and he would be forced to endure the cryogenics chamber to serve the duration of his sentence. The judge in his case handed him the maximum sentence and spared him being sentenced to hang for the crime, though the judge did state that if he could sentence Mr. Park to 1,000 years per victim he would have…yes the sentencing for the Cyro Prison was new and inmates would be lucky to find a lax judge, with many handing out extremely long sentence terms simply because the inmate would survive and be forced to serve the entire term.
Human rights groups immediately jumped into action protesting the new Cyro Prison calling it inhumane and violation of the prisoners human rights. With many stating that they would rather see the inmate executed than subjected to a barley tested deep freeze slumber program. They would state that the inmate would be thawed and thrust into an unknown world and one that they wouldn’t have the skills or ability to survive in, and many might simply find themselves back in the system again. This was ignored seeing the Cyro Prison system was equipped with a brain dancing technology that would install a dual data jack system into the inmate as part of the sentence.
This data port would be connected to a main terminal line to monitor vitals and ice build up within the prisoner to make sure during thaws they wouldn’t simply die from having ice crystals enter their brains and heart. This would also allow the prison system to upload a rehabilitation program that would turn the inmate into a pacifist and give them basic life skills and chosen career and life skills that would serve the inmate once they would be released from prison. This as we learned from Mr. Stewart Park was only part of the problem, and those data ports would keep the prisoner very much awake and trapped in a nightmare scenario. He stated that once he was placed in the Cyro Chamber he remembers everything and was able to fully understand that he was neither alive nor dead, he was in a coma like state and couldn’t feel anything but was able to feel everything.
The brain dancing software would simply fill his mind daily and feed into his constant nightmare, he remembers that as a FIP veteran he would suffer nightmares, PTSD, and steady pain from his countless injuries…but being forced to relive his families murder on repeat and as well be forced to live through his arrest, abuse in the prison system, and railroad of a trial would be maddening enough for the guilty, but imagine if your innocent and have to go through all those emotions all over again on a constant loop.
He would as well state that the rehabilitation program would simply force information into your mind all the while forcing you to relive the trial, the crime, the evidence, and basically everything you did in your life that the system decreed as “Wrong”. They were basically trying to program me to be a classic “Neo Conservative” with strong patriotic values towards the UCAS and a deep foundation within Evangelical Christianity….and the work skills were nothing more then the basic skills needed to work in a office. This would be flooded into you on repeat and honestly the entire program was designed to keep you very much mentally aware and alert. I can only imagine if I had to be subjugated to those programs for 500 years if I would have been able to even function in polite society, let alone try to exist in a world that would have been alien to me.
“I served ten years of my sentence before I would be released from my frozen hell scape thanks to the continued work of my friend Jack Malone, thankfully he was there to witness the aftermath of my deep freeze. Though after my thawing the entire system would break down and so would begin what was known as the “Great Thaw” and this would be caused by a glitch in the programing that would suddenly begin thawing the inmates and lets just say it would cause a mass casualty event with all the prisoners suddenly being given a death sentence. I was lucky. My convection was over turned and I was found to be innocent, though I needed to undergo many years of surgery and rehabilitation including needing a heart transplant simply cause the ice had destroyed the muscle and valves in my old God given ticker…..now imagine if I had been in there for the full 500 and had no one on the outside still alive to help me, I would be dead upon arrival basically; honestly I am happy to be alive, but I wish they had simply hanged me.”
Well it would be Park’s release and his sudden failing health that would make the news and apply pressure to Cyro Corp add the “Great Thaw” and the lawmakers would jump into action to save their wallets and careers. They would pass legislation baring the use of the Cyro Prison System, the problem is that they put a cavoite on it and stated that the bill would expire come 2074 and would need to be voted on again to further the legislation. Cyro Corp would lobby the Loyalist party to simply allow the bill to expire and then force new updated legislation to be passed by the Freedom Party and for the Loyalists to simply filibuster and kill. Well in the FDC money talks and the corporations rule the roost, the bill would expire on December 31st 2073 and would simply die.
Minority Leader Bail Canterbury would attempt to bring it to the floor multiple times during the session and simply fail each and every time to get a floor vote on it. The Loyalist Party had successfully killed the legislation and even when the Freedom Party would become the majority they would be unable to successfully bring any bill to the floor without the Loyalists filibustering it to death. Eventually the Anti-Cyro Bill would become a relic of the past and allow for Cyro Corp to once again open it’s doors fully and introduce their new and improved Cyro Prison system.
They would state that they have successfully been in operation and freezing inmates within the Salish-Shidhe and have fixed the technical issues of their previous systems. This information was obtained from internal records and as well they have been lobbying multiple Loyalist senators and representatives to open additional prisons within the UCAS and CAS. Cyro Corp has as well been using their deep freeze technology to imprison test subjects since the Great Thaw and using the Corporate Provence Law as their shield from prosecution if found out.
We have as well learned that Cyro Corp has as well a partnership contract with Biotechnica Corps and have been setting up further cryogenic chambers within the Salish-Shidhe and within the Algonkian-Manitou Council and according to internal records provided they as well have been freezing inmates within the northern native lands successfully for sometime. Cyro Corp is as well aiding the Axis of Evil with their new military equipment and weaponry as well suppling numerous CC1678 Mobile Armored Anti-Personal Vehicles and other not so nice sounding equipment.
According to our contact Cyro Corps has been lobbying the Loyalist lawmakers in DC and have opened an office on K street under the banner of “Right to Life” and furthering to push their propaganda and Neo Conservative values as the “American Way” using their fundamental religious values as a calling card. Cyro Corps masquerades itself as a Christian Corporation and has been using this to further support from the lawmakers that use religion as a form of crowd control and have been lining the pockets of these politicians to keep pushing their ideals.
Internal records show that Senators Eric Sounds and Marcy Downs of Wyoming have a major hold in the companies stocks and sit among the Board of Shareholders, this as well includes Senator Barbra Yellen and Karen Jones of Maryland and Senator William Burns of Alaska with many others holding stock in Cyro Corp and receiving millions in campaign donations (Legalized Bribery). Cyro Corp being within the Salish-Shidhe and involved in the Alexandrian Conflict is yet another reason we need to separate ourselves from our Corporate Overlords and to get the big money out of the Federal District.
24/12/2076 – 18/06/2084:
I understand that news has been slow to be updated on this page. Many reporters have been heavily focused on reporting from mainstream sources, joined the war effort, or have given up the being a journalist all together. There are many reasons for this sudden evacuation from the field of journalism with the biggest being the rise on populism and fascism within the UCAS government. I am not speaking about the administration of the President Oliver McKeen (2074 – 2082) the McKeen Administration was one of honour and dignity, it was the only presidential administration that actually worked stalwartly to better the lives of Americans and work to unify the nation once again.
The Freedom Party under the leadership of President Oliver McKeen and Bail Canterbury would breath life back into this nation and unite the people once again, they would tear down much of the corporate rule that has plagued this nation since before the Great Tragedy of 2018. With the stalwart work of senators now retired George Eaton, Maximillian Yates, Nelson Rodger, Arnold Malone, and Emerson Appleton all working diligently to bring forth fundamental change within a broken system along with there allies in the capital. McKeen’s first term (2074 – 2078) would be aided by the popularity of these senators and the work they were doing, though come the start of the Alexandrian Conflict on Christmas Day 2075 (official: 08/12/2075) and the sudden recall and retirement of senators G Eaton, M Yates, N Rodger, A Malone, and E Appleton along with many others that would head the call of duty and patriotism it would leave a rift within the sacred halls of the capital.
The war effort alone would be enough for the Freedom Party to maintain their majority within both the House and Senate during the 2076 midterm elections as the people would be united and standing behind the UCAS and Alexandria. The nightly reports from award winning journalists Addison Mayweather and Bradly Johnson would keep the people informed and glued to their television sets, recruiting stations would see a spike in volunteers all looking to stand bravely in the face of tyranny, as well a sudden increase in popularity towards the Sons of Liberty as the people would become directly aware of the warnings spoken by many within that order as the nature of corporate rule would be to overwhelming to ignore.
The Alexandrian Conflict would be the catalyst that opened many American citizens eyes to the corruption within government and to the horrors of the corporations. We would watch as Aries Arms, Bio-Tech, Cyro Corps, and many others would have their hooks deep within the Salish-Shidhe and within the war. They would be ignoring the articles of warfare, executing prisoners, assaulting civilians, deploying chemical and biological agents on both civilian and military population. Their deep seated secrets would be exposed within the major cities of the Salish-Shidhe, Pueblo Nation, and the other non aligned Native Tribal Lands in the frozen north.
The people would rally behind the words of Alexandrian Chief Redeye and Deputy Chiefs Jade and Sitting Bear, the people would learn about this little once unknown territory within the Salish-Shidhe called Alexandria and feel for them as they would be defending themselves from an all out illegal invasion all in the name of corporate rule and greed. Even the Confederate American States would be ready to stand united in defense of Alexandria and the American way under the leadership of their duly elected President Lowell Townsend (2076 – 2084) and the reuniting of the North American Council (2075) under the leadership of Mayor Nero Caprio and eventually once again falling into the hands of the UCAS President Oliver McKeen.
Everything was looking good for the UCAS and the rest of the North American Council during these early days (2075) and even when the UCAS government and CAS government reinstated the draft initially for medical personnel and then combat soldiers as the ultimate cost of war was becoming to great for the current standing armies and their allies. The people would still stand behind the current administration and their elected officials of the Freedom Party. This would lead to yet another landslide victory for McKeen & Prichard come 2080 and another victory for the Freedom Party in the House and Senate, though locally the Loyalists would start to regain lost ground and begin to gain a foothold within the local and state offices and governorships. This would end up being a sign of things to come and the Loyalist wave would come crashing down fully come the midterms of 2082.
Now I can’t state that everything was fine during McKeen’s first term, even though the people were vastly behind him and the supported the war effort; there would be a fringe movement within the UCAS and eventually the CAS that would begin to rise to power and through fanatical media outlets, large rallies, and the spreading of conspiracy theories stemming from the sudden termination of Defense Secretary Woodrow McDaniels, the UCAS First Movement, and the rise of Anti-Meta Groups the poison of xenophobia and anti-Semitic groups would begin to spiral outwards and infect the minds of the average citizen. Thrust in the depraved rantings from Senators Eric Sounds, Marcy Downs, Sebastian Crawford, Joshua King, Kathrine Jones, and Howell Jones the fires of division would once again be ignited and the political arena of the UCAS would be thrust into a blazing effigy of hate and bigotry.
Between multiple senators within the Freedom Party either being assassinated, retiring to join the War Effort, and simply retiring do to age or illness and the sudden shift in local politics the Loyalists would end up unseating Majority Leader Bail Canterbury as leader of the Senate come the 2080 election cycle and would loose the House come the 2082 midterm election cycle. The loudest of the Loyalist voices Senator Eric Sounds would become the new Majority Leader with Representative Johnathan Biggs (Loyalist) unseating long sitting Representative Warren Mitchell (Freedom) as Speaker of the House and thrusting the UCAS First Fanatics directly into the leadership of the UCAS government.
With the war effort still ongoing and the people divided and fighting amongst each other the politicians and corporates would be able to once again seize control and begin to enforce the will of the minority onto the will of the majority. Yes even though they held the power, their antiquated and hateful views and policies would be unpopular even within the loyalist party, the UCAS First Movement would simply kowtow to the elite class and begin to enforce their unpopular far right Christian values onto the nation. They would be gladly praised by the fringe minority and anyone that opposed them would become a target for removal and assault, this would as well begin the Presidential Campaign of Senator Eric Sounds the craziest of them all.
The Sounds Campaign would start slowly and stutter many times out of the gate, in the early days of Primary season it would seem that Eric Sounds would simply be to crazy for the Loyalist Party and the majority of the voters. He was loosing throughout the primary season to front runner moderate loyalist Linda Washington and her more progressive values and views, Linda’s campaign was gaining speed heading into the Loyalist National Convention and it would seem that the nomination would be hers. This is were the UCAS First movement would prove that they care nothing for democracy nor the will of the voters, and come the summer of 2082 during the convention Loyalist Party President Seth Jones would announce the nomination of Eric Sounds as their parties candidate to take on August Prichard in the Presidential Election of 2082.
Eric Sounds had lost the primary election cycle by a large margin and the voice of the people was behind Linda Washington. This would upset the supporters of Linda as the media would begin to balk at the very undemocratic nature of Sounds nomination and would throw all their support behind August Prichard who would take Linda Washington on as his running mate. This move to blend parties and show that the Freedom Party stood with the democratic process would hopefully cement Vice President August Prichard’s victory come November. This calculation was not in vain as the Freedom Party voters loved VP August Prichard and the Loyalists were behind Linda Washington, the national media was praising the unification that would hopefully bring forth the nations second female Vice President and allow for a continuation of the McKeen & Prichard’s work and fight for a unified America.
During the general election campaign cycle of 2082 would see the rise of the UCAS First movement and the unfounded attacks on the mainstream and cable media outlets, calling them fake news, charlatans, servants of the Jewish State, and far worse…Far Right outlets and reporters would begin foaming at the mouth every chance they got to spread hate, fear, and lies about the media, VP Prichard, and Senator Washington. Stating that they are nothing but slaves of Archibald Kingsbury, Wilhuff Palpatine, Montgomery Palpatine, Tudor Yates, Nero Caprio, Maxwell Irving, and Orson White…They would balk at the reporting’s of Addison Mayweather, Alfred O’Bannon, Bradley Johnson, and Jack Bing as nothing but partisan hacks and spewing forth false news these attacks would spew forth to others in the industry.
The Loyalists of the UCAS First movement would even go as far as to attempt to strip Addison Mayweather of his many Pulitzers and Nobel Prizes for his journalism. They would manipulate the broadcasts of Addison and Bradley in hopes to discredit them further and prove their false claims of those award winning legendary journalists as nothing more than a “False Flag” (Not to be confused with the Sons of Liberty claim of False Flag.) they would claim their reports to be basically a red herring and everything they reported about was nothing more than Fake News. This would go as far as to try to discredit the Alexandrian Conflict by decreeing it nothing more than a fake war set up by the Freedom Party to further enslave and kill ” True American Christian Patriots.” all in the name of the Jewish State.
The UCAS First movement would gain steam during the general election cycle as rallies for Sounds & Crawford would break attendance records as arenas and stadiums would sellout quickly, outdoor rallies seeing attendance in the hundreds of thousands as the people would be absorbed within the mania that would be the lunacy of Eric Sounds. While the silent majority sat and watched in horror and disbelief over the lunacy that was unfolding and being spewed forth by Eric Sounds and others within the UCAS First Movement. Now Flash forward to the election of 2082 and when the smoke would clear after the polls closed on November 3rd…It would become obviously clear that Prichard & Washington had won the general election, with the Loyalists loosing multiple seats within both the House and Senate. It would look like the UCAS First Movement would be over before it really begun, though Eric Sounds would announce his victory live on the UCAS First networks just after the polls closed and before a single ballot had been counted. His supporters would all begin the festivities and throughout the nation victory parties for Eric Sounds would begin, though as the ballots would be counted it would become painfully clear that August Prichard would be victorious…and the fascists within the UCAS First Movement could not let that stand.
While Prichard & Washington where delivering their victory speeches to their countless supporters and thanking the UCAS people for allowing them to be your next President and Vice President the Sounds & Crawford campaign was preparing their legal attack and claiming that the 2082 election was stolen and fraudulent. This would overtake the actual victory of Prichard as Sounds would use his legal team to flood the courts in multiple states, the UCAS First Media Outlets would hammer the people with the claims of fraud throughout the day on the matrix, radio, and television. The UCAS First movement would spew forth hatred and propaganda about the 2082 election being stolen and that the “False Media” outlets just want the majority of the people to remain blind to the truth, the conspiracies would once again be fueling the fires of division as those loyal to Sounds would never waiver even when confronted with the truth.
In DC the Freedom Party was trying to do damage control over the sudden denial of the truth from Eric Sounds and the lunacy he had created, stating that yes the people had spoken and yes August Prichard is the duly elected president. With the opposite happening on the other side and Loyalists spewing for the election fraud lies and conspiracies, the people were divided and the outrage was real on both sides. Sounds and the UCAS First mouth pieces would be spewing forth that the Alexandrian Conflict was a lie and that only actors would be dying at the same time real families would be receiving letters and calls from the various allied governments about their son or daughters death in the line of duty and having a very real funeral and burial. This would all further tear the UCAS in half as the death toll from the Alexandrian Conflict would surpass one million dead on December 25th 2082, the majority of the nation would be living in reality while a very very vocal minority would be living in a dream world filed with lies, conspiracies and hatred.
Now one would think that everything would be settled within the court systems as the Sounds campaign had zero actual evidence of election fraud and a stolen election. This would be the case on the state and federal level as each judge tossed out claim after claim…and in two separate situations the attorneys for Eric Sounds would find themselves in jail on contempt charges. Now as the days turned to weeks and Eric Sounds having yet to officially concede the election it would come down to the Supreme Court of the UCAS to make it’s ruling on the claims of election fraud. The entire UCAS First movement was banking on the Loyalist Majority Court to side with them and simply put Sounds in office…needless to say the court’s ruling on January 3rd 2083 would rule in the favor of people and against Sounds and Crawford.
This would not be the final blow and the UCAS First movement would have one last shot and that would be at the state level, and yes the UCAS still uses the antiquated Electoral College system that plagued the old US and it will once again plague the people of the UCAS. Remember on a state level the Loyalist party had been gaining ground and holding the majority for some time, this would end up being really bad for the voice of the people and why we need to end the electoral college once and for all. On January 6th 2083 during the counting of the Electoral College votes with August Prichard presiding and doing the count as the currently sitting Vice President of the UCAS and before a joint session of the House and Senate August Prichard would be presented the box of ballots and in what should have been a simple process would turn into a nightmare and a true Constitutional Crisis (Ratification Crisis).
With UCAS First and other fringe groups protesting outside after being riled up by Eric Sounds and others during a rally to “Save the UCAS” it would be learned that the local governors would simply under the cover of darkness replace the duly sworn electors with those that were loyal to the Movement. We would as well learn that many of the electors would find themselves locked up and in prison on trumped up charges, though as the votes would be officially counted it would show that Eric Sounds had won the election in a landslide and August Prichard would loose…now this is were things get really bad and why we currently have Eric Sounds as the President of the UCAS and not August Prichard.
August and the other Freedom Party elected officials including some loyalists knew something was fishy and could not continue the vote counting process and certify the 2082 election until an investigation was done. This would mean that the votes might not be certified in time for the inauguration of August and would leave the Presidency in the hands of the speaker of the house and that is currently held by UCAS First Loyalist Johnathan Biggs as the acting President come January 20th at 12:01 pm if the investigation is not commenced by then. Well as the nation is thrust into this crisis the UCAS First Movement would cheer and celebrate as they believed they had saved the UCAS and stopped the Freedom Party from stealing the election. In reality all they did was aid in the death of the UCAS and in Democracy as the investigation would hit brick walls caused by the local governors and get stalled making it very clear that the deadline would never be reached.
Oliver and August would be forced to step down seeing their term was expiring on January 20th at 12:01 pm and without a certified election this means that both men either locked themselves in the oval office and declared Martial Law and destroy the Freedom Party forever. Or they put their faith in the investigation and did what the UCAS Constitution and Ratification decreed, with one final address to the people and stating that the people had spoken and the election of 2082 would end up with Prichard being inaugurated they would leave the White House and for Prichard what he hoped would be a simple transfer of power once the investigation was finalized.
Well this would never happen as Johnathan Biggs was being sworn in and would nominate Senator Walter Levi as his VP until the investigation of the 2082 election was finalized. Well come March 1st 2083 sitting President Johnathan Biggs would openly declare the investigation into the election of 2082 to be over as VP Walter Levi would certify the fake electoral ballots…with great protest from many within the Freedom Party and only a few in the Loyalist party. This would only drag the process out but in the end Eric Sounds and Sebastian Crawford would be sworn in officially on March 4th 2083 the day democracy died.
Prichard and Washington would continue to fight in the court system to decertify the election claiming that the electoral college ballots where fraudulent and even with mounds of evidence and witness statements from the original electors…the Supreme Court of the UCAS would simply rule against them in a 12-5 vote. Prichard hasn’t stayed silent even after having the heavily Loyalist leaning court rule against him and the will of the people, Washington has as well taken to speaking out publicly against the current regime and the stolen election of 2082…this though has been in vein as the Sounds and Crawford have used the weight of the UCAS government to silence Prichard and Washington who are currently living within hiding and using the digital media as the voice for the people.
With the revelation of the Loyalists theft of the Presidency and their killing of Democracy the people would begin to rise up and protest the death of democracy and the ending of a free and fair election system. These protests would be met with a swift response from the local governments as the people would be incantated, killed, or worse at the hands of the new authoritarian, fascist, theocracy of a regime that has been placed in power. With the Loyalists controlling the three branches of government and the Freedom Party being silenced on every turn, it would be a terrifying turn of events as the people watched the UCAS First Movement place loyal dictators into the cabinet and to head multiple government agencies. The only saving grace being the UCAS Joint Chiefs and Director of the NSA Dover Palpatine refusing to acknowledge the current sitting government. The Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs General Ralph Rivers of the US Elite stated that they will follow the orders and commands of President August Prichard and Vice President Linda Washington and so will General Alvin Webster (Marine Corps), General Baily Georgetown (UCAS Army), Admiral Elliot Rivers (UCAS Navy), and General Ernie Baxter (UCAS Air Force).
Now this does throw a wrench into the events of the Alexandrian Conflict as those officers loyal to Sounds and those loyal to Prichard and initially nothing seemed to change. Though as the Loyalists wanted an end to the war and to reunite with the wonderful corporations that the Freedom Party was oppressing and had suffered countless defeats at the hands of the numerous forces within the alliance that is the Allied Forces. Between 2083 – 2084 the UCAS forces would simply remain within Alexandria and aiding and following orders, though come December 8th 2083 the official 9 year anniversary of the Alexandrian Conflict the Loyalist held congress would vote to withdraw troops from Alexandria and with President Eric Sounds officially ending the UCAS’s involvement and withdrawing troops and aid. This would create rift within the military that might never be able to mend, as UCAS forces began it’s withdrawal from Alexandria there would be infighting within regiments and units.
This was caused simply do to those loyal to the Joint Chiefs and August Prichard and those loyal to Eric Sounds and the Secretary Of Defense Johnathan Biggs, and under executive action Eric Sounds would declare any soldier of the UCAS that remained within Alexandria or following orders from the Joint Chiefs to be traitors to there country and shall be punished accordingly. Much of the UCAS forces would withdraw from the Alexandrian Conflict and yet many would stay in defiance of orders coming from a dictator not a duly elected president. The court system has been flooded with briefs and cases to remove Sounds and Crawford from office yet when it hits the supreme court it is killed, and from what I can report things are not looking good in the cities either as the people are furious and we could be heading to another civil war quickly.
Within the first two years of Eric Sounds false presidency he has written and signed more executive orders than any other siting president ever and the UCAS First Movement is fully in control of the government with the Freedom Party existing simply as a tool to abuse and embarrass. One by one are rights are being stripped away by Eric Sounds as he is returning us to a time that is unrecognizable, allowing the loyalist governors to act as enforces of the UCAS First will and crushing the voice of anyone that opposes them. Eric Sounds has decreed that all FIP of the era 1850 – 2000 shall be turned over to the government for euthanasia and anyone that is found to harbor one of the FIP is to as well be decreed an enemy of the state and face the firing squad if caught. He has basically undone the innocent before guilty and removed the trial by jury system, religious freedom is gone, women’s rights history, freedom of the press well that’s gone, freedom of speech nope not no more, pretty much everything granted to us by the Bill of Rights well has been erased under Eric Sounds dictates.
You have those that obey out of fear and those that obey out of loyalty to the UCAS First Movement, throughout 2083 and 2084 the country would become unrecognizable and even those within the Confederate American States would begin to secure the boarders once again and President Lowell Townsend would offer sanctuary too the many political refugees from the UCAS. The Confederate South wouldn’t suffer the same oppression from it’s elected officials as President Townsend would work diligently to undo the damage of his predecessor Edward Davis and clean the Confederacy up. Now this would not be without it’s complications and it wouldn’t be a smooth process but throughout his two terms he was loyal and dedicated to rebuilding the south in the image of freedom, liberty, and democracy and giving the people a voice.
He would establish the Confederate Supreme Court, establish a government safety net for the people, remove religion from the government, enforce free and fair elections of governors, mayors, state legislators and judges. Basically Townsend and Taffer would do the exact opposite of what happened in the UCAS and even go as far as to call for a vote to have the UCAS removed from the North American Alliance until order and democracy is restored and come 2082 the North American Alliance would vote to remove the UCAS from it’s roll and consider the UCAS government to be a dictatorship and enemy of the Alliance. This would create some issues simply do to the division in the military but somehow it has managed to not shoot the Alliance in the foot as of yet, and come November 3rd 2083 the CAS would have their third legal election and it would be no surprise that Wesley Taffer would win in a near landslide. His inauguration is scheduled for January 20th 2084 and has declared that the Confederate South will remain focused and engaged in the Alliance and the Alexandrian Conflict.
Now things get a little weird in the UCAS come 2083 as basically the country has been consumed by the Regime of Sounds and his antiquated and xenophobic movement has cemented itself within the governments of multiple states, the federal government, and even being injected into the school system. Many FIP veterans have been turned over to the government for a reward and stipend of cash and well have been put to death through lethal injection, Temples, Mosques, Shrines, have been under attack and even Churches that don’t follow the decreed state approved Religion have been burned to the ground, closed, or decreed illegal and shut down through force. Magic of any type has been decreed illegal as it goes against the teachings of the state approved church. Ghettos have been set up in major cities mostly the once Demilitarized Zones (DMZ) for the placement of metahumans and people of colour, women have been stripped of basically all rights and are simply property of their fathers and husbands, and corporations have been given the right to purchase their employees.
The situation in the UCAS does get worse under the Sounds Administration as the people flock to the sovereign cities of Seattle, Boston, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Portland Oregon, Rebel City, and Santa Fe not to mention seeking asylum within the Confederate States of America and Alexandria. August Prichard and Linda Washington remain outlaws of the UCAS First Government and continue to act as the leaders of the free world giving the people some hope that change is inbound. The people continue to look for any sign of hope from the media as Addison Mayweather and Bradly Johnson have been silent for years and so has basically every media personality that tries to speak out against the UCAS First Government. The airwaves have been regulated and controlled and only an occasional breach can breathe a breath of fresh air into the nation, with that coming from pirated broadcasts or the work of the Horsemen, Rogue One, Sons of Liberty, US Elite, Storm Riders, and the Santa Fe Ring.
Though when all seemed lost within the UCAS and the prayers of the people would be unanswered, as the citizens walked around within their now required uniforms and dress code…one that would be a tad strict for the 1940’s and 50’s, simply trying to avoid persecution from their UCAS First neighbors and obeying the government out of fear…oh yes gun laws became extremely strict in many states that where controlled by the Loyalists and so did cyber and bio regulations, they needed to disarm the people in order to fully control them; guess they didn’t see that coming. When all hope seemed to be lost the UCAS First movement would suffer a breakdown and a major loss as without warning and without any justification besides the wrath of god; hundreds if not more of UCAS First Loyal Drones would suddenly drop dead all at once on April 15th 2084. Senators, Congressmen, Judges, Reporters, Mayors, CEO’s, Governors, Military Officers, and countless others all dead at the same time like some higher power flicked the off switch. Thus thrusting the UCAS into a form of anarchy as people watched elected officials drop dead while addressing the media, on the senate floor, walking down the street, and within meetings.
Nothing like this has ever happened before and this would allow the Freedom Party to use this against the UCAS First Regime, Sounds and his VP Crawford would simply jump into action to begin damage control but this would allow the Freedom Party within the UCAS Capital to call an emergency session and as the bodies of their collogues were still warm Minority Leader Bail Canterbury would usurp the Loyalists and even stepping over the bodies of a few now dead loyalist senators to call for a roll call vote. So on April 15th 2084 Senator Bail Canterbury would once again learn that he had the majority and enough warm living bodies to start undoing some of the damage done by the prior leader Kenneth Jacobs…who mind you tried to call a recess in order to mourn and grieve those that just died; he also was demanding to pause the senate till an investigation could be performed to determine who and or what just killed many of his caucus.
Senator Canterbury refused and using what political power he had left moved the Senate forward and would learn that many of the Loyalists that remained alive where in fact not loyal to the UCAS First, Jacobs, Crawford or Sounds and were simply kowtowing and playing alone to remain in power and out of jail. Leader Bail knew he needed to move quickly as VP Crawford could shut things down as the President of the Senate and basically any bill would die once it hit Sounds desk as he hoped in the House that minority leader Warren Mitchell would be able to keep order and understand their dumb luck and ability to start to unravel the tangled web of corruption. Now this didn’t last very long as the senate and house would be forced to recess, yet the damage had been done and without many of Sounds deeply loyal subjects among the living the UCAS First Regime would begin to crumble from within.
Seems like if you institutes a deeply fanatical and religious based government and suddenly thousands of your supporters and lapdogs drop dead…ya loyalty breaks as many fear it’s the wrath of god. This would be the day that would tear down the corporate rule as the stock market would crash, the economy would crumble, and basically everything Sounds had set up to be his lynchpin of control would fallout bellow him. The Joint Chiefs would use this as a chance to seize control of the Pentagon and order the arrest of President Sounds and Vice President Crawford for Treason against the UCAS and leading a coup and insurrection and forcibly install August Prichard and Linda Washington as President and Vice President.
The people would take to the streets against the now weakened UCAS First Government and throughout the rest of April 2084 until Memorial Day 2084 the UCAS would rise up as the voice of the oppressed could be heard throughout the nation. The revolution would be short but impactful as from sea to to shining sea the people rallied and rose up, they let their voices be heard as they took back their country and their government. President Taffer of the Confederate States would lend what aid he could seeing The UCAS under Eric Sounds was decreed an enemy of the North American Alliance and as the current President of the NAA (North American Alliance) he would be within his right to do so.
Seems that the UCAS First movement was very fragile and all it took was the sudden and unexplained deaths of thousands for it to fall…okay I understand how cruel and stupid that sounded, this was not expected and how can one ever prepare for a mass causality event that would encompass multiple regions hundreds of miles apart. So on May 29th 2084 the legally elected President August Prichard would be sworn into office with Linda Washington as well taking the oath of office on Memorial Day 2084. Eric Sounds and Sebastian Crawford would be on the run from the NAA and multiple allies of Sounds would find themselves arrested and behind bars, many corporations would collapse as the people inside would rise up against forced enslavement, and even on the local level things would not be good for those within the UCAS First Regime…as not every official would perish on April 15th 2084 and many towns and cities would find themselves unable to break the shackles of enslavement; only hoping that the UCAS under Prichard would be able to free them.
This basically is why the media has been silent on this page, we simply feared being arrested and put to death for speaking out against the current regime. We spent our time spreading the message of rebellion and resistance to those that were brave enough to stand up against the tyranny of Sounds. We had to dodge the Demure as they remain loyal to the UCAS First Regime and so does many within the media that made billions perverting the truth and disgracing the noble career of journalism and broadcast journalism. The UCAS First Movement has undone decades of progress between the rebels and UCAS and has forever divided the UCAS into two camps, the UCAS First and the rest of us. We might not all see eye to eye politically but the now not so silent majority will never again allow the vocal minority to rise up and usurp democracy and the will of the people.
Now things might not be back to normal throughout the UCAS but basically it’s as close as we can get until Prichard and Washington can undo the damage done by Sounds and Crawford, emergency elections need to be held throughout the UCAS to replace governors and mayors as those that survived the sudden purging were arrested for treason. The NAA and UCAS have begun hunting down those towns and cities still under UCAS First rule and the people of the UCAS and CAS are calling for a unification and talks have once again begun between President Taffer and President Prichard about opening the boarders and absorbing the failed UCAS into the successful CAS and once again becoming the United States and returning Old World Blues something that before Sounds was moderately popular with only 30 – 40% of the populations wanting to reunite and ever since Sounds it is an astounding 85% of the UCAS population and 70% of the CAS population according to the latest polling data.
The only question would be who would be the President and Vice President of the newly unified United States of America. UCAS President August Prichard and Vice President Linda Washington continued to lead and inspire a revolution through exile and President Wesley Taffer and Vice President Arnold Malone continue to prove that they hold true to the ideals of Democracy and Liberty; when asked the four leaders of the free world stated “We will let the People decide between Prichard & Washington and Taffer & Malone.” though this is still a long while out as the NAA and the UCAS still need to shut down the voices of the UCAS First Movement and bring those still in leadership to justice for treason. The Confederates never waned nor gave up hope that Liberty would prevail in the UCAS and have remained stalwart allies since the stolen election of 2082…they have been fighting on behalf of the people and Prichard and Washington. When Asked about the California Free State and what to do with the CFS if the unification was to happen. “Well simply put the CFS has currently been annexed by the Hawaiian Republic…well at least the southern half and the northern half is still contested territory. We won’t be looking to absorb any territory that doesn’t wish to join the unified union, we won’t be forcing anyone to suddenly become a citizen of the United States; the people of the UCAS and CAS have spoken and we have heard their voices loud and clear.”
“Basically there is still a lot of work to be done regarding the unification and healing process after the UCAS First Regime and they are still out there, they are still a plague that needs to be quelled before they rise again. You will always have extremism within a nation, you can’t ever escape it, you simply need to understand how to protect against it and place laws and procedures in place to prevent it.” the statement continues ” We must come down hard on those in the UCAS First movement and punish them to fullest extent of the law including putting many to death to show the people that justice has been served and showing others that punishment will be swift and final if they try something like this again.
” The UCAS First protests that began before the Alexandrian Conflict should have been a sign of things to come, that should have been a warning but the judicial system took it easy on many of them and allowed countless to walk with a slap on the wrist. Others were jailed for a while, some sent to prison for life and very few found themselves sentenced to death by hanging or firing squad. That part needs to change, that part is what gave Eric Sounds and the others the gumption to attempt this, if they had scene hundreds being sentenced to either life in federal prison or given a death sentence…I doubt the movement would have gained popularity and been able to do what it did.” These are the words of VP Linda Washington UCAS.
Okay so some wrap up with further continued news throughout the region:
The CFS and the warlords of LA County would try to use their naval fleet mostly made up of pirates and hijackers to assault the Hawaiian Republic Navy that was coming to the aid of Alexandria and this would end badly for the lawless CFS. It wouldn’t be long before the mostly law abiding citizens of the CFS would side with the Hawaiian Republic that has aided them numerous times against the villainous Japanese and Chinese governments. This attack by the Warlords against the Hawaiian Republic would prove to be the final straw and the people would rise up and toss the current leadership out, fighting would be quick and mostly painless and the people simply welcomed the Hawaiian Republic in and handed over those guilty of the attack to the navy.
Between 2079 – 2083 the Hawaiian Republic would begin the process of establishing a government within the southern CFS region and returning law and order to the once mostly lawless LA County. Now this hasn’t been an easy process but it has been successful and welcomed, the Asian governments have been pushed out of the CFS and the corporate rule of lower sectors have been basically squashed with the aid from the Santa Fe Ring. The Hawaiian Republic has expanded into California’s southern region from Monterey south and everything north is still contested territory as the UCAS, Pueblo, and the Warlords fight over the territory thrusting the northern regions of California into a bloody territorial dispute. With everything from Monterey south being decreed the New California Republic within the Hawaiian Republic.
The Tir Tangier has fallen and fully surrendered to the might of the Allied Forces on June 6th 2084 and the current NAA has begun the talks of surrender and what the Tangier will have to pay in reparations for their involvement with the Axis forces. The war on the southern boarder has come to end with Aztlan surrendering to the allied forces and accepting the terms of surrender including dissolving it’s military, government, and corporate national status and removing itself from the market fully. The Aztec Magical Studies Corporation will be under the control of the Santa Fe Ring with advisors from the Confederate Government, the land itself will be governed by Old Mexico and the name of Aztlan will be erased from the history books and restored simply to Mexico. All magically active citizens will be forced to register with the new government and all practices of blood magic have been outlawed and carry an instant death sentence. Forces of General Graham Drexel will remain within Mexico and be bolstered by both the forces of Old Mexico and Caribbean League.
With the insanity in the UCAS government coming to an end do to the sudden and unexplainable death of many of the lawmakers and elected officials within the United Canadian American States (UCAS) government, military, law enforcement, business world, and the media. These deaths are still being examined and investigated by law enforcement and as of today medical examiners have only been able to determine that the cause of death is SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) very similar to the more known SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) though normally extremely rare and rarely discussed or studied. Seeing the death toll has now reached over 6,500 citizens that have all simply perished at the same time, on the same day, and in the same fashion the medical community is scrambling to uncover the hidden killer that might have been lurking within the bodies of those that have passed away from SADS.
It’s been just over two months from the Tax Day Tragedy and the researchers, investigators and scientists have yet to conclude what was the cause of the tragedy. Many thought it was another magical attack from the Native forces within Alexandria and the Sioux nation seeing this tragedy stretched from coast to coast, though according to the magical division of the FBI and Homeland no magical signatures or residue has been found on or around the bodies. Many blame the Freedom Party and their scientific corps for creating a bio toxin that simply targeted the DNA of the Loyalists and UCAS First devotees. Again scientific and forensic research has disproven these claims stating their has been zero sign or evidence of a toxin, bio agent, or anything that could be considered a terror based attack.
According to multiple medical examiners and forensic experts, the bodies of the deceased showed no signs of foul play. Dr. Armstrong Fellows the Chief Medical Examiner for the UCAS division of the CDC stated “They came across our tables in nearly perfect condition, well besides the sudden death problem.” he continues ” I have reviewed the reports from my staff, as well the reports from the FBI, Homeland, NSA, and local and state officials and we have all concluded that the afflicted citizens all succumbed to the rare condition of Sudden Cardiac Distress that caused their hearts to simply stop functioning and causing a sudden and painless cardiac event that caused instant death. As of June 19th 2084 I don’t have anything concreate to verify my claim and diagnosis, though in all my years as a doctor I have never scene anything like this and it will take many months of research, tests, and data analysis before we can conclude anything definitive.” he goes on “As of right now the CDC and the NAA have concluded that this is an isolated incident and no one should be concerned or worried about the risk of suffering SADS, and please allow the scientists to do their research before jumping to conclusions. In a few weeks, months, or even years we might learn of the true cause of death…or we might never know, either way this is a unique and rare situation highly unlikely to ever happen again.”
Now after hearing Dr. Armstrong Fellows words it doesn’t make me any less worried that I might be a ticking timebomb and my heart might simply seize up and it’s lights out. I know I am not alone in this fear as many citizens share the same concern and have begun to worry about their own mortality. This has led to an uptick in life insurance sales, citizens prepaying for their funerals and many younger married citizens simply forgoing the idea of having children. The UCAS has also scene a rise in suicides from citizens within all generations with the younger generation simply committing suicide by police officer while engaged in the practice of mass murder through a mass shooting incident. This has begun to lead the UCAS into talks to limit firearms and regulate the firearms industry further. The mass shootings are nothing new in the UCAS and within the NAA, though between 15/04/84/ & 20/06/84 there has been a 2000% increase in these events throughout North America.
Ever since the start of the Alexandrian Conflict in 2074 and the fall of Aries Arms in 2078 gun sales have soared and lawmakers within local and state level governments have made it easier for the citizens to acquire these weapons of war. This is not a political issue as it seems both the Freedom Party and Loyalists have been a staunch supporter of the ideology of the “Right to Bear Arms” and the only differences being in the ideology behind it. Now just after the Great Tragedy of 2018 and the signing of the Treaty of Denver lawmakers attempted to disarm the citizens and this was the start to the great revolution and uprising that followed. Those days are long gone and now we have a government that contains left overs from the early days of the Freedom Party and newer Loyalists that have been raised during the revolution and understand the motto of the UCAS “Guns, Guns, Guns….My life would be so dull without them.”
Basically in todays NAA culture everyone is caring a firearm and it gets worse in the major metropolitan areas such as Seattle, Federal District, Los Angeles, Miami, Cleveland, NYC, and Philadelphia with the South West Trinity and Common Wealth having more guns then citizens. The fall of Aries Arms caused the streets to flood with there weapons of war and gun dealers simply giving them away at cost. This has led to an sudden increase in gun violence within the region and only now has it reached it’s boiling point as the media has not relented on it and their isn’t a citizen today that hasn’t been affected by this in some fashion.
As the government of the UCAS in the Federal District now being called once again Washington DC or DC for short begins to reform itself after the sudden death of countless lawmakers, as multiple states hold emergency elections and nation looks towards President August Prichard and Majority Leader Bail Canterbury for reform and change to ease the pandemic of gun violence within the UCAS. Our leaders simply they will look into what can be done and they will pass some form of reform…many citizens see this as simply nothing more then political speech for “Do Nothing” and why would these men do anything to restrict firearms seeing they are both deeply connected to the original revolutionary agencies. With the POTUCAS being a former General of the Son’s of the True Confederacy and the Majority Leader serving within the 501st Cajun Cavalry but groups that have taken up arms against the Loyalists and the rise of the UCAS during the Great Tragedy of 2018. Anyone expecting change from our government regarding firearms is expecting a leopard to change it’s spots and these men have the blood of it’s children on their hands and they simply don’t care.
To think that anything will change in the Confederate South is also well being to optimistic. POTCAS Wesley Taffer & VPOTCAS Arnold Malone are both members of Rogue One, Horsemen, and former members of the SOTC with Malone still being part of the 501st Cajun Cavalry and Taffer being part of the 88th Floridian Gators an order he founded and commanded as Governor. These southern rats are deeply invested in the revolution and will never relinquish the right of the people to “Bear Arms” as they both have scene the rise of tyranny and understand that sometimes the “Tree of Liberty Needs to be Refreshed with the Blood of Patriots and Tyrants.” so as the South has become far more progressive then the North under the leadership of there new government and elected officials…somethings will never change and again the blood of children is on their hands as well.
This is what happens when you have elected officials that are rebels at heart, elected officials that have once taken up arms against the government they now serve. Prior to the Great Tragedy of 2018 this was illegal and these men would never have been allowed to hold office but since 2018 we have elected and allowed members of the Son’s of Liberty, 67th Stormrider’s, 401st Ghost Division, Son’s of the True Confederacy, 501st Cajun Cavalry, 88th Floridian Gators, Rough Riders, Rogue One, Horsemen, Son’s of Odin, and various other agencies to hold public office. We have been putting these rebels, insurrectionists, and murders into multiple government agencies through political appointment by those we have elected. If change is ever going to happen we need to stop electing these rebels, we need to put people in power that actually want change and ones that aren’t looking over their shoulder for the next uprising.
Now since the rise of the UCAS First movement this has been a hard egg to crack as the people are now even more behind politicians like McKeen-Jamestown, Prichard, Mitchell and Canterbury…even with Senator Bail Canterbury’s popularity rating being the lowest it has ever been and the lowest nationally for any sitting senator since the turn of the century; he is still looked at as the voice of the Senate and the voice of freedom and many want the leader of Rogue One to run for President after Prichard’s second term is up.
Now this leads me to the next situation that is developing out west within the once California Free State (CFS) and now The New California Republic (NCR) that has been annexed by the Hawaiian Peoples Republic (HPR). Hawaii has seized control of everything south of Monterey Bay and has been working it’s way north to Sacramento, the HPR with the aid of the NAA have been gaining ground quickly and pushing the lawless warlords further north, they have been crushing the Chinese and Japanese governments and corporations out of the the region, and they have been laying the groundwork for a reconstruction of a true democracy and government within the newly acquired territory.
The POTHPR Georgetown has decreed that the New California Republic is to be a regional chapter and part of the Greater Hawaiian Peoples Republic and should have it’s own President and siting government. The duly elected President and Congress would work along side the government of the HPR to aid in the creation of a more perfect union. The people of the NCR region of California have gone to the ballot box and elected well in a primary the “Hero of Freedom and Liberty” the man that helped liberate and then run the HPR in it’s infancy, the man whose signature is upon the Hawaiian Peoples Republic’s Constitution, yes they want former President Charles Butler now known as Charles Palpatine to take the helm as the first president of the New California Republic.
Charles Palpatine is currently still engaged within the bloody conflict inside the Alexandrian Conflict as has been for nearly a decade now as the commanding officer of the 420th Hawaiian Republic Scout Motor Division. His popularity within the HPR has been off the charts for years now and he has once again become a household name in the HPR with citizens collecting anything related to their former president and even the siting president spouting praises towards the nations liberator. Charles Palpatine is basically a shew in seeing he is well regarded as one of the best and most honest politicians of his age and the man that once again brought prosperity and freedom to the Hawaiian Islands.
Now I can state that President Charles Butler is not a bad man, he is not a problem, and he is the man that stood up for freedom and liberty when it was taken from the people at the hands of the Japanese Empire. Though he is also a man that sits on another level, he is not one of the people as he is one of the wealthiest men in the known world, he is the embodiment of the elite, and it is only a miracle that his only son Logan Palpatine a duel citizen of the HPR & UCAS hasn’t been drafted into the Alexandrian Conflict by the UCAS as of yet….I smell his fathers influence or family influence there. He walks in a different world disconnected from the average citizen and is deeply invested into the firearms industry. He serves multiple rebel agencies and has fought against the sitting government of multiple nations numerous times discounting the Alexandrian Conflict.
So to have this man represent the people of the NCR is to have another warmonger of a bygone era once again in a position of power and how long will it be before the NCR decides it want’s further territory and we have yet again another war this time against the Ute Nation? How long before he bores of the NCR and returns to the Island and runs for President there…yes he is allowed especially once his terms are up within the NCR if elected. Again Charles Palpatine isn’t the worst choice for the NCR their are plenty of more bothersome people that could run and I am speaking of anyone that is part of the UCAS First movement or anyone of the actually theocracy, authoritarians, dictators we just ousted from the UCAS…I am looking at you Eric Sounds.
Reports from the Alexandrian Conflict state that General Charles Palpatine hasn’t as of June 20th 2084 accepted his parties nomination for President of the New California Republic nor has he announced who his running mate will be, but it is expected in matter of days. The NCR Presidential Election is scheduled for November 7th, 2084 and it’s expected to be a crazy one with multiple candidates over multiple political parties attempting to be the regions first ever President. Though in this reporters opinion if Charles Palpatine accepts the nomination then it is basically all over but the crying as he will win with a landslide victory and cement himself as the first ever president twice.
This just in from the Pentagon: Pentagon spokesman Harold Walsh stated this afternoon that the UCAS Military division US Elite in a joint effort with the UCAS Marine Corps, UCAS Air Corps, and The HPR Defense League will be constructing a new military complex within the boarders of the New California Republic and the Ute Nation regions that have been seized by the UCAS and HPR forces. This will be a regional joint base for the multiple forces of the North American Alliance and will constitute multiple missile silos, manufacturing, research and development, as well as NAA national defense forces. It will create thousands of jobs for scientists, technicians, law enforcement, military personal, as well as countless jobs for civilian contractors.
The region will as well create an open and safe route for troops and equipment to move between the NCR territory and the newly acquired UCAS territory with additional support coming from the free city of Las Vegas. The construction of two of the regions towns and the initial base has been slated to begin on August 1st 2084 and the UCAS and CAS Congresses have approved the spending bill of 950 billion credits for the construction of the first ever joint North American Alliance Military Structure to defend our western seaboard from the lawless and dictators of the East.
The Pentagon has decreed that once General Maxwell Irving returns from his classified mission inside the Alexandrian Conflict he will be given command of the new region being referred to as Hopeville and Ashton. These two joint bases under the command of General Maxwell Irving will house enough troops and military might to crush our enemies in a blink of an eye, the Pentagon has also stated that they will as well house General Alvin Webster to oversee Ashton under the direct command of General Irving who will be promoted to the rank of General of the NAA and be given the prestigious fifth star. His promotion was unanimously approved in what’s left of the UCAS Senate with General Alvin Webster of the UCASMC being sent to represent the Marine Corps and the Joint Chiefs within Ashton.
The Pentagon will as well deploy Brigadier General Orson White to serve under General Maxwell Irving as a representative of the 15th Island Brigade after his promotion to Major General once he too returns from his classified mission. The NAA will as well be deploying Major General Douglas Howell to command the joint divisions Security and Criminal Investigation Division, as well as Brigadier General Hale Henderson as a representative of the Alexandrian Defense Force. Creating it’s own variation of the Joint Chiefs and NATO force, the NAA have approved of those that have been chosen for the duty of defending the west from any enemy invasion, the NAA has as well stated that this is not the only people that will be stationed at this new joint commission base to defend the NCR, SWT, UCAS, CAS, HPR, RC (Rebel City), FCOS (Free City of Seattle), SN (Sioux Nation) and Alexandria.
This announcement hasn’t been without it’s objectors and some of those would surprise you. We would expect the UCAS First Movement and Loyalists to be against any military expansion into the new regions of the NAA. Though I would never have expected Mayors Nero Caprio and Adolf Gunner of the Southwest Trinity to object to the creation of this joint defense league and the expansion of the military might into the west, especially Mayor Adolf Gunner as he serves within the US Elite and has been within the Alexandrian Conflict for many years. The War King is another that I am surprised by simply do to his aiding of the ADF (Alexandrian Defense Force) and the Santa Fe Ring’s involvement in the ongoing conflict. They haven’t stated anything more then it being a slippery slope and the NAA needs to focus on healing and not military expansion, it needs to work on it’s alliance and not creating a strong arm that can be used against the NAA if things go bad again…..for example Eric Sounds and the UCAS First.
Now as for the NAA the vote wasn’t unanimous but was able to pass with a majority vote:
Alexandria: No (Chief Redeye)
Sioux Nation: Yes (Chief Grizzly)
Hawaiian Republic: Yes (President Georgetown)
UCAS: Yes (President Prichard)
CAS: No (President Taffer)
Rebel City: No (Mayor O’Reilly)
Old Mexico: Yes (President Milton)
Caribbean League: Yes (Governor Pilgrim)
Common Wealth: No (Mayor Kingsbury)
NCR: Yes (The People of the NCR)
Southwest Trinity: No (Mayor Nero Caprio)
The vote passed with a 6 – 5 vote with the no votes coming from very surprising people as it was thought this would be a signed and sealed situation not one that would lead to many hours of debate before President Prichard would call for the vote after over a full day of debating and I mean these politicians were debating for well over twenty four hours about the creation of the NAA Military Complex. They had no issues with the promotions of Maxwell Irving, Orson White, and Douglas Howell…though some of the dissenters showed some concern but in the end gave the yes vote to moving their promotions through to their representative governments. Now we simply have to wait to see if they will accept their new deployment and command stations, if I was Maxwell Irving I would be honored to receive such a promotion as he has achieved the highest rank possible within any sitting military and from what I have learned about General Irving they couldn’t have picked a better man to command the New Coalition Forces with the Hopeville and Ashton complex.
The NAA is also looking at Naval Captain Wilhuff Palpatine and promoting him to the rank of Admiral directly and giving him a straight 4 stars and skipping the entire process of working his way up from Rear Admiral. As I write this the Armed Services Committees of the House and Senate are holding closed door sessions to debate the promotion of Wilhuff Palpatine and the promotions of Commander Arthur Swanson, LT Commander Nelson Rodger, Marine Captain Carrol Webster all members of the UCAS Navy’s Elite Tomcats Flight Division. The NAA have as well stated that they will keep a very close eye on the new coalition force and the leadership of it’s commanding officers, who currently are deployed within the Alexandrian Front and outside of Alvin Webster don’t have a clue of the sudden change of venue.
The people of the NAA are mostly behind the creation of this Coalition Force seeing many are scared of further corporate attacks as the war in the native lands hasn’t been going well for them, the Axis forces use of chemical agents and their blatant disregard for the civilian population and the articles of war has much of the population concerned and standing behind this joint project. Many see it as a step forward and the people are standing behind the NAA’s choice to make General Maxwell Irving the Supreme Commander of the Coalition stating that he is a true hero and has the interests of the people at heart.
This formation of a Coalition Forces comprised of the NAA forces and commanded by General Maxwell Irving has other scared, the Coalition will be commanded by a member of the FIP and it will be overseen by the NAA with the NCR being it’s primary overseer as the new bases will be directly within the region held by Hawaii and the NCR. It’s flight defense league will be commanded by Wilhuff Palpatine the ultimate spy and government bureaucrat, while it’s scientific divisions will be commanded by former Private School Headmaster in Louisiana. Also in true Federal District fashion they haven’t alerted these men of their new commissions and responsibilities as well this didn’t pass with a unanimous vote in the NAA…I mean a 6 -5 vote with the likes of the FIP Veterans Monty, Taffer, Archie, Nero, and Patsy all voting thumbs down.
Seriously why did the Pale Rider, the Scimitar, Colonial, the War King, and the Cisco Kidd all vote no and adamantly debate the need of such a compound. These men have scene the horrors of war, these men have suffered under the weight of generations of warfare and conflict and have witnessed the failures of government personally. I mean why isn’t the NAA heading the words of these hero’s….I mean for fucks sake President Taffer voted No that should tell you something! This Coalition will for forward unless the people can stop it, and in this reporters opinion nothing will be done as the people are scared, the people are looking at the jobs, the people are looking at their elected leaders as the guiding force to lead them into prosperity. I mean where will the NCR stand once they have an elected president, I know the people have spoken and he will have to do as the majority have stated. Though if Charles Palpatine wins in November I don’t see him being all to happy with this military prospect right on his boarder….seeing his brother and many of his friends all voted thumbs down, will the suave gentlemen simply bow down and willingly accept this as law or will he try to tear it down before it begins.
So we have yet another thing that will divide the people, our leaders can’t and won’t move to restrict firearms to protect the people but they will jump hurdles to bring forth another military compound. They are as happy as a pig in shit with the creation of the Coalition Forces and simply stating as fact that General Irving will accept the command of the Coalition Base as well as the others that have no idea of what is waiting for them. Our government is willing to jump through hoops to promote Wilhuff Palpatine to give him direct command…but nobody asked Captain Palpatine if he wanted this or if he approved of this. The governments simply came up with a really bad idea and pushed it forward during a time of war when the people are scared and willing to accept more protection from their government. The NAA is obviously not fully behind the creation of the Hopeville and Ashton Military Complex and seeing it will be poised right smack dab in the middle of many of the NAA territories this can’t end well.
Will it create jobs yes, will it create a new territory yes, will it dissuade our enemies from attacking us maybe, and will this compound increase the deficit absolutely. This is going to happen regardless of what the people think, seeing the minority voice is muzzled and the majority voice is currently fueled by fear especially in the UCAS. The creation of the Coalition Base doesn’t scream peace it’s bellows “Endless War” and in closing think about this….if there is a need for this base and it’s direct location, then answer me this Why?
21/06/2084 – 26/10/2084:
Okay here we go people another bold update to the news as it seems again it has been silent in here for the last few months…where oh where is Addison Mayweather? The war in Alexandria must be keeping him busy and he must be working on the next Pulitzer prize winning story, that can be the only reason he is been silent and not on the airwaves as of recent…and I mean within the last four years silent, I do hope he is okay and still alive.
The UCAS (United Canadian American States) has been slowly recovering after the restoration of the democratic system and the removal of Eric Sounds and his UCAS First Government. The sudden departure of nearly 7,000 souls did help destabilize the power structure and send the UCAS First movement into panic mode as well as damage control. Former President Sounds and VP Crawford would flee the Capital during the Tax Day Tragedy and go to parts unknown reports indicate that they fled to the CFS (California Free State). This could explain why the HPR (Hawaiian Peoples Republic) have been engaging within a bloody conflict within the CFS, they might be simply hunting for Sounds and Crawford with the aid of the UCAS.
On July 1st of 2084 General Charles Palpatine of the Freedom Party would accept his parties nomination via a recorded message and we would learn on July 4th of 2084 that General Charles Palpatine would be choosing Senator Maximillian Yates of Seattle Metro to be his running mate. General Palpatine is considered to be a shew in for the seat of the New California Republics (NCR) president as he has the backing of a majority of the citizens of the NCR as well the HPR military that are stationed within LA County. General Palpatine is not unfamiliar with governing over a new government and giving birth to yet another democratic nation as he served as the HPR’s first legally elected President and would go on to serve his two ten year terms.
Former President Charles Palpatine of the HPR would leave office with the highest approval rating of any president within history and the people of the HPR would have gladly elected him to a third term if the HPR Constitution had allowed it. The NCR Constitution and Declaration now await the formal signature of their duly elected first President and Vice President during the inauguration ceremonies. If Elected Charles and Maximillian would be in office for ten years mirroring the term limit structure of the HPR and whomever wins will have a lot of work to do in reconstructing the once lawless region of the CFS.
Until October 26th 2084 we would only receive recorded audio from the Freedom Party Candidates as they were still on a classified mission for the Alexandrian Defense Force (ADF), and we would go onto learn that all the audio recordings from Vice Presidential Candidate Maximillian Yates would be old recordings from his prior campaigns. It seems that according to reports from the UCAS and ADF Maximillian Yates, Maxwell Irving, Orson White, Addison Mayweather, and Kyle Finesilver would have been captured and taken prisoner by the Axis Forces. They would be held captive illegally for many years and suffer greatly under torturous conditions and after many attempted rescue missions would they be rescued by allied forces after the group would make their valiant escape.
We would as well learn that Charles Palpatine would as well suffer capture and escape his captures during the same time as the others. According to Colonel Rusty Palpatine commanding officer of the 101st Recon he would rest till they were rescued and after multiple missions the 101st Recon would be able to penetrate the Axis prison deep within the Ute Nation lands of Nevada and rescue C Palpatine, M Yates, M Irving, O White, A Mayweather, and K Finesilver as well D Howell, T Baker, S Oxford, and C Holt who would still be held captive. According to Colonel Rutherford the Axis forces would put up stiff resistance and only after many days of fighting would the 101st be able to breach the prison and rescue the men who were suffering from starvation, infections, and countless other wounds: including broken bones, lacerations, burns, dislocations, and worse. He states that he has heard the stories of the concentration camps of Nazi Germany and from what he witnessed inside the Vulture Prison Camp made his skin crawl at the inhumanity that was being perpetuated there.
The Vulture Prison Camp would be secured by the 101st Recon with the aid of the Santa Fe Ring and after rescuing the prisoners the 101st would return to the 101st MASH unit with the prisoners. Charles Palpatine would be the first to be discharged from service as he served the 420th Recon Motor of the HPR while the others would need further treatment, we would see the triumphant return of M. Yates when he and Charles Palpatine would storm the stage at a political rally in front of the San Diageo Capital building to address the people live and in person for the first time at 1400 hours on the 26th of October 2084. The others would be discharged days after Charles and Maximillian…well only Dr. Kyle Finesilver would actually be discharged from active duty like Charles and Maximillian. Maxwell Irving, Orson White, Douglas Howell, and Seth Oxford, and Ted Baker would be handed promotions and given a few months of leave to recover before being deployed to the new NCR/NAA Coalition Military Compound; Addison Mayweather would have his military contract closed and he would return once again to being a civilian journalist after a lengthy recovery…knowing Addison Mayweather he will not stay off the air for long.
Colonel Rutherford would continue to command the 101st Recon and partner up with the 15th Island where he will be serving under General Albert Schwartz and alongside Colonel Wendell Flannigan who replaced General Maxwell Irving and Colonel Orson White, Rutherford will be replacing Colonel Maximilian Yates as Schwartz’s executive officer. A spokeswomen from the NAA would state “We are all beyond thrilled to have our men home, they have risked everything to secure victory for the Allied Forces and once we learned of their capture we stopped at nothing to return our men home alive were they belong.” she continues ” These men are hero’s and should be treated as such, they are the reason the NAA forces have been so successful, they are the reason for the continued victory of our forces in the Salish-Shidhe and Ute Nation, they are the reason the corporations have been collapsing, and they are the reason millions of civilians haven’t suffered further chemical attacks. I salute these men, and I am proud to call them hero’s of the NAA and hero’s of the Alexandrian Conflict.” (NAA Press Secretary Christina Mulligan)
The UCAS simply used the stop loss that has been in affect since the start of the Alexandrian Conflict to renew the commissions of GA. M. Irving, BG. O. White, MG. D. Howell, BG. S. Oxford, Col. T. Baker and redeploy them to the Joint Commission NAA Coalition Base within the NCR. GEN Alvin Webster of the UCASMC and ADM Wilhuff Palpatine will be deployed once the conflict in Alexandria comes to a close or the inauguration ceremonies for the the NCR President and NCR Vice President on January 22nd, 2085. The NAA is still divided over the creation of the NCR/NAA Coalition Base and the defectors still debate the issue, though as of the remarks from Presidential and Vice Presidential Candidates Palpatine and Yates praising the project during their speeches this afternoon one can assume that this is a signed sealed and delivered situation and the NAA will just commence as normal.
After the summer recess the UCAS Senate would return to session with a new class of senators that would have been appointed by there states government and to no ones surprise the Freedom Party would once again be in the majority of both the House and Senate. The House would recommence only days before the Senate and the swearing in of the new members, the respective caucuses would hold closed door elections for their leadership positions and on September 8th 2084 we would learn that Warren Mitchell (FP) would once again become the Speaker of the House, New Jersey Representative Orwell Alderson (FP) would become the Majority Leader, with South Dakota Representative Samantha Crawford (LP) being elected to Minority Leader. Over in the Senate in a surprising turn of events Senator Bail Canterbury (FP) from Louisiana would retain his leadership of the Freedom Party as the Majority Leader. It was speculated do to his callous acts during the Tax Day Tragedy and his plummeting popularity that he would be ousted for a more centrist member of the party, though it seems being heartless is a qualification for majority leader and he surly showed the nation that as he jumped over a fallen colleague. The Loyalists would elect Kathrine Jones of New York to represent them as Minority Leader, this has many in DC worried seeing Kathrine Jones is a staunch supporter of the UCAS First Movement and continues to push the narrative of Prichard being a fake President.
One of the first acts of the House and Senate were to prevent Eric Sounds and Sebastian Crawford from ever holding any form of office again and Speaker Mitchell and Majority Leader Alderson would create a House Commission to investigate the events that led up to the successful coup attempt. Their first closed door session will be held on October 9th 2084, many within the Loyalist party openly objected to the creation of the commission and those that represent the UCAS First faction of the party demanded the commission to include multiple members of their faction. Speaker Mitchell would reject multiple lists of House Members provided by Minority Leader Jones till eventually hand picking the Loyalists that would sit on the commission. Their first act was to call for a special investigator to handle the investigative process and nominated Detective Donald Gray to led the investigation, his nomination was quickly pushed through both the House and Senate and needless to say many in the Loyalist party are very nervous to have the legendary investigator Donald Gray sniffing around…and yes he is as well a licensed federal attorney.
If anyone can uncover what Eric Sounds and the UCAS First did and what they are still doing it will be Donald Gray as he is now the Special Investigator & Prosecutor for the second January 6th commission. Donald Gray has the full support of the Justice Department and the Prichard Administration behind him, he as well has the support of the American people as every citizen within the NAA wants those involved to be brought to justice. Alva Palpatine has once again been appointed to head the FBI and Dover Barton has been reinstated as the director of the NSA, Elmer Canterbury was appointed to head the Department of Homeland Security, and former Governor Franklin Quinn’s nomination for Attorney General would be approved on June 14th 2084.
Trials for those arrested in conjunction with the coup and insurrection of 2082 would begin on August 2nd 2084 within the Capital District and continue throughout the summer and well many are still ongoing. On October 10th 2084 the first round of trials would come to an end with multiple guilty on all counts convictions for those that involved themselves in the violent protests on January 6th 2082 as well as those that helped organize the Save the UCAS Rally. Timothy Brown, Richard Lewis, Sara Sounds, and Kevin Wilson would all be found guilty and during sentencing on October 17th T. Brown, and S. Sounds would be sentenced to death by firing squad and R. Lewis, and K. Wilson would be sentenced to death by hanging. There executions are scheduled for November 22nd at 0800 within a undisclosed location. Further trials continue for the nearly 2,300 citizens that have already been arrested for their involvement in the coup of 2082 and many more still remain at large and are being sought out by the Justice Department.
The suspects arrested during the UCAS First Riots that killed Washington State First Lady Francis Quinn have been appealing their death sentences and after the Justice Department would be stalled during the coup of Eric Sounds they simply sat in prison as their appeals sat within the federal court system. Many reached out to Eric Sounds directly for a Presidential Pardon as he promised and they found their pleas ignored by the dictator, since the Tax Day Tragedy of 84′ those appeals have been rejected and their executions can commence. The UCAS has already executed 300 of the UCAS First terrorists convicted during the riot outside the Capital Building in 2075. There are still over 4,000 people that have been sentenced to death by either hanging or firing squad that await their date with the executioner.
Do to a legal loophole they were able to save off a quick date with the executioner and get there cases before the apelet court, though as the UCAS First Movement was working to undermine the nations electoral process they allowed these cases to remain unheard. The inmates would remain in a holding pattern between life and death as the nation exploded around them, well that would be until Franklin Quinn’s first day when he ordered the court system to review the appeals and one by one they would be stamped with a big red rejected by the many judges and courts. AG Franklin Quinn has ordered that all executions of those convicted and sentenced before 2080 be scheduled starting November 1st 2084 and the last be finished before midnight on December 31st 2084. The White House reports that their mail department has been swarmed with letters from the families of those now staring down there date with the executioner for mercy, they simply want their loved ones to be spared a death sentence and simply given life in prison. A spokesmen for the President announced that President Prichard will not entertain the idea of a Presidential Pardon for anyone sentenced to death during the UCAS First Riots and he will simply approve the Justice Departments request to execute multiple inmates at the same time to speed the process along. “They have already been allowed to live long enough and now is the time for justice to be dispensed, may God have mercy on their very souls.” (POTUCAS August Prichard).
Harsh words from our President but I can’t blame him, they have been through the legal system and they were all sentenced to death. Now nearly 1,000 found guilty have had their sentences reduced to life without the possibility of parole but for the 4,576 convicted that staved off death for a decade…well it’s simply time to pay the piper and let justice be served. The court system is once again flooded with cases and once again many are facing the death penalty after the coup attempt and I really doubt the UCAS Government will be lenient with anyone that was involved in the coup and they will have the book thrown at them. The funeral homes will be busy over the next few years and the executioners will be earning their paycheck as the executions start and the over populated federal prison system begins to reduce it’s occupancy and make room for an entire new batch of felons.
The UCAS continues to heal after the Coup of 82′ and the endless war in Alexandria that has now claimed over 2 million lives with no end in sight. Chief Redeye continues to offer the Salish-Shidhe a chance to surrender and his offer is always rejected with violence and further aggression from the Axis Forces, even though the Axis has been loosing ground and battle after battle on a weekly basis. The NAA continues to push the advantage deeper into the Salish-Shidhe with successful pushes into the northern regions of the Native Lands that have sided with the Salish-Shidhe, I am not sure why the Salish-Shidhe government hasn’t accepted surrender simply to keep some portion of their land. They have been loosing ground quickly and in my best estimate based on current progress is something doesn’t change soon it will only be a few more months before well….they are forced to surrender as the NAA is closing in quickly and has them surrounded.
NAA Forces have already captured multiple officers, chiefs, and corporate officers, and have been housing them within exquisite mansions as they await trial; while the standard soldier is confined to a NAA prison camp. Now when I first heard about the lavish treatment of the Axis prisoners I was outraged, then I remembered what the Allies did to to Axis poisoners during the Second World War and simply laughed. They were simply giving these evil bastards a chance to feel safe, feel like they were being ignored and treated respectfully, they are allowed to wear their uniforms, wear their lavish suits, be given comfy beds, smoke, and food…now this might anger you as are boys are being killed and tortured in their prisons. This is actually brilliant and I will explain why: Those mansions are bugged and seeing the Axis command that simply thinks they are being treated nicely and will simply avoid serious prison time or death for their crimes begin to talk as new ones arrive. They divulge tactics, troop movements, accomplices, further plans, and basically everything the Allies need to defeat them and bring this to an end quickly.
This is how we learned of the Vulture Prison Camp and who was sitting inside, the Allies have learned a great deal of important information from these cocky bastards that seemingly haven’t learned from history. Though World War Two Veterans Chief Redeye, President Prichard, President Taffer, and Mayor Caprio surly have and deployed the same tactic here and guess what it worked again and this time the surveillance technology is far superior than that from over a century ago and these Axis bastards ego and arrogance have simply spelled doom for their own forces and accomplices. The evidence gathered through this unique prison system has allowed the NAA to arrest multiple corporate officers that have been living outside the conflict zone yet profiting from and producing the chemical agents used against the Allied Forces. The FBI under Alva Palpatine has been able to root out moles and spies that have been inside our own government, and the NSA and Homeland under Dover Barton and Elmer Canterbury have been able to secure the boarders and shut down multiple corporate locations. Countless arrests have been made throughout the NAA territory and the NAA have discovered a deeper conspiracy within the Salish-Shidhe and their attempt to annex and consume the entire Native American Nations as well using corporate influence the rest of North America.
Without the tactile genius of Chief Redeye fighting for these lavish prisons we might never have found out the information about the Salish-Shidhe and this war would be truly endless. We have as well learned through the information gathered by M. Yates, M. Irving, A. Mayweather, O. White, and K. Finesilver that former Secretary of Defense Woodrow McDaniel and Aries COO James O’Brian are behind this conflict and are the architects of the chemical attacks. As to be expected both McDaniel and O’Brian have become hero’s of the UCAS First and many demand that those two be welcomed back within the UCAS and there is a small fringe group that want those rat bastards to run for President and Vice President in the next election come 2088. The NAA has decreed Woodrow McDaniel and James O’Brian to be enemies of the state and have issued a national arrest warrant for both men to stand trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Now onto the next major story that seems to have fallen into the cracks and I am not sure why it has been ignored, well maybe seeing Addison Mayweather isn’t back on the air and well he was a POW (Prisoner Of War) while this was happening yet again. On September 30th 2084 North America would suffer another random case of SADS when at 1500 (3:00pm) hours approximately 500 citizens within multiple law enforcement agencies mostly local and state would suddenly and unexpectedly drop dead. The scariest aspect would be come 2330 hours (11:30pm) on the same day another more tragic event would happen and this one would mostly affect West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Arkansas though most specifically West Virginia. Emergency dispatch would report a total system failure as panic buttons and home ambulance alerts would send the switch board into total anarchy.
Reports indicate that over three thousand calls for help would reach the regions emergency dispatch lines as suddenly citizens were dropping dead within there homes and places of work. The regional first responders where already over stretched from the earlier tragedy, so in the late hours of the 30th police and first responders where once again inundated with calls for help. It would turn out that at exactly 2330 hours (11:30pm) exactly 3,500 citizens within the Confederacy would all suffer from SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) bringing the total up too 4,000 lives lost on September 30th 2084 and a grand total of 10,500 since April 15th 2084. The newest cases of the supposed rare SADS has the medical and scientific community baffled as to what is causing it, and many conspiracy theory’s are already starting to form as the citizens and media are left to find answers for themselves.
People are blaming the Sixth World, others are blaming the meta humans, while the loudest of the crazies are blaming the Technocracy…Seems that it is always easy to blame the boogeymen of the government or a Godless society when something tragic and unexplainable happens. Many within the affected regions have taken it upon themselves to avenge their fallen neighbors, especially in the state of West Virginia the state impacted the hardest. Magical shops, schools, and places of study and worship have been assaulted, burned, and simply desecrated with religious symbolism and worse yet meta humans and the magically active have become targets of further hate and lynching.
Didn’t take long for the Confederacy to slip backwards….oh wait West Virginia is within the United Canadian American States, so no this is sadly on par with the current citizenry. Though inside the CAS (Confederate American States) President Wesley Taffer has declared a National State of Emergency and has also activated the nations Hate Crimes Statute, he has also addressed the people in an attempt to calm the situation stating that the Confederate Magical Crimes Agency has deemed that the deaths were NOT caused by a magical or astral attack. No magical or astral residue or astral signature has been found on or around any of the victims, they have stated that any unprovoked attacks on any citizen of magical nature, or any act of property destruction or vandalism will not be tolerated and will be punished to the fullest extent of the law with the Hate Crimes Statute attached…in most cases this is an automatic death penalty case.
He states “We as a nation mourn and grieve the loss of life, we grieve with our fellow countrymen across the boarder in the UCAS as we are all Americans. Though this is the time to heal, this is the time to help our fellow man, and this is the time for us to come together united as one nation, we must rise above this and not lower ourselves into the idol gossip that plagues the matrix and coffee shops.” he continues “This is the New Confederacy, this is not the South of Edward Davis, this is the South that you all built through Townsend and myself, and this is the South that has chosen progress over hate. Let’s not slip backwards and return to what was once comfortable, let’s not fall back into our heritage of hate and fear, and let’s not blame those of the sixth world for something they had nothing to with.” and he goes on “These tragedies are just that tragedies and we need to look into the root of the cause, we need to trust our medical and scientific agencies and we must trust in the Confederate Federal Law Enforcement agencies. Today we heal, and today we come together as one nation under God.”
President Wesley Taffer also stated that he will be signing an executive order to pause any all federal loans to the direct families of those affected by these random and sudden unexplainable deaths. He also stated that he will be contacting Confederate Senate Majority Leader Brook Mansfield to bring forth legislation to fully reimburse or cover any funeral expenses up too 10,000 credits per citizen that passed away do to SADS. President Taffer stated that he hopes the Confederate Congress can come together for the people and bring forth this legislation through unanimous consent. He understands that the drafting process will take time and he and VP Arnold Malone will be keeping a close eye on the process to make sure it is free of any exploitative language and can’t be abused, they will also make sure there are stiff penalties for those that attempt to fraud the CAS Government during this tragedy. Penalties can include fines, reimbursement plus interest, up to 20 years in a maximum security prison, and mandatory time serving on a southern chain gang.
It seems that CAS President Taffer is not pulling any punches with the penalties for attempting to defraud the government during this tragedy, though whenever there is a tragedy there is going to be those looking to capitalize. Across the boarder in DC the UCAS is looking directly at the corporations for these sudden deaths and have begun a full inquiry and audit into the corporations and their possible involvement in the SADS epidemic that has now killed thousands of it’s citizens. President Prichard is calling for the people to cease the hateful actions and decreeing that any citizen arrested for a crime related to hate in response to the SADS conspiracies will automatically forfeit their lives as any and all hate crimes in the UCAS will be punished by either firing squad or hanging and be elevated to a federal felony regardless of the states statute. POTUCAS Prichard has as well reached out to Speaker Mitchell and Majority Leader Canterbury to pass legislation to offset the funeral expenses of those affected by the SADS epidemic and as well institute stiff and harsh penalties in the cases of fraud up to and including the death penalty.
President Prichard has as well declared a National State of Emergency….though this is really simply a show as the UCAS has been in a state of emergency since Christmas Day 2075 do to the Alexandrian Conflict. Now this sudden fear of the corporations has as well allowed the Freedom Party to push forth legislation banning corporate money in government, banning corporations from donating to campaigns, banning of lobbyist from corporations and special interest groups, and setting donation limits to a maximum of 1,500 Credits per donation and each donation will be linked to a the donors SIN (Serial Identification Number) and NO PRIVATE OR PUBLIC BUISNESS OR CHARATABLE ORGINZATION can donate to a political campaign. This bill was expected to pass the house yet die in the senate, and in a surprising turn of events it passed both the House and Senate along party lines though in the Senate 20 Loyalists broke rank and voted in favor of the bill and it would be signed into law the next evening live on television by President August Prichard.
It’s sad that it would take the death of over 10,000 civilians for the UCAS government to break rank with the corporate overlords that have been funding them since before the Great Tragedy of 2018. This event that could have turned very ugly and still has the chance to become extremely nasty as it has further divided the nation and thrust the UCAS citizens into the Christians vs the Others and if Prichard doesn’t handle this quickly it can and will forever tear the UCAS asunder. Though the death of over two million in the Alexandrian Conflict and the direct involvement of Aries Arms, Bio Tech, Cyro Corps, and Aztechnology simply warranted sanctions but no major punishment, well the people dealt those companies the fatal blow by boycotting their products and services. The UCAS government did revoke the corporations national status protections once it was discovered that Aries Arms was directly involved in the war, I guess better late than never.
The Loyalists are up and arms about the removal of corporate and dark money within the campaigns, claiming that no Loyalist will ever get elected again and to that I say tough. The Freedom Party mostly already refused Corporate PACT money and only took small donations from their voters and base, there where more centrist and moderate members of the Freedom Party caucus that did in fact accept corporate and dark money and as of October 20th 2084 that ends and all politicians are created equal within the UCAS as they are in the CAS. This doesn’t prevent a candidate from self funding their own campaign and that hasn’t been clearer in the Palpatine & Yates campaign as they have been able to outspend their opponents Noah Jones & Barbra Potts as the Palpatine Campaign has both out fund raised and out spent their Loyalist opponent by over 10,000 to 1 and seeing Charles Palpatine is one of the wealthiest men in the world…..good luck Jones & Potts you be goners as money still wins elections.
The NCR follows the same regulations that the HPR follow and it seems that the Hawaiian Constitution has been the document of inspiration within the drafting of the Confederate Constitution as the Confederacy as well has bared any and all forms of corporate money within politics and revoked all corporate charters and national status. The HPR and NCR have directly outlawed major companies from setting up shop outside of small independently owned chain shops and it looks like the CAS is not far behind. This was done in the HPR to undo the damage the major corporations had upon the citizenry and environment and to further push Japan off the Island, the NCR wishes to do the same and has been doing so successfully in pushing Japan, China, Korea, and Russia out of it’s region and India has already been pushed out. The CAS has begun the process of regulations and restrictions on the once unregulated corporations and they have already begun to feel the pressure.
The UCAS has now followed in the footsteps of their NAA allies and taken a page from the HPR in banning, sanctioning, and taxing the corporations. The NAA would pass a 48% Corporate Tax Rate in a unanimous 10 – 0 vote with only the NCR abstaining since they don’t officially have representation till Inauguration Day 2085. This is the highest it has been in decades, they have also passed on a 10 – 0 vote again the NCR abstaining to increase the tax rate on the wealthy and requiring quarterly audits to make certain they are paying there proper share. Many of the loopholes and shelters the wealthy would have used prior have just been cut off as the NAA plans to replenish their nations coffers off the backs of the wealthy and corporations instead of chocking the life out of it’s people. The Alexandrian Conflict has been a costly endeavor for all nations involved both monetarily and the tragic loss of life. NAA member Chief Redeye stated “This war needs to be funded and debts need to be paid and why should the poor and working class cover the bill while the rich simply enjoy all the perks.” he continues ” The wealthy have been raping the people of this great nation for far to long, they have been protected by the elected officials whom they financed to make sure they would be looked after. Many have been able to avoid their tax bill and simply pay less in taxes then your average working class family and that is disgusting.” he continues ” The NAA is a place where we can pass a uniform tax code that all nations have to obey and one that the NAA can help fund and supply additional auditors, and forensic accountants, and other tax professionals to make sure everyone pays their fair share…and this includes all politicians and members of the NAA council. I have already provided my financial records to verify that my tax bill is in order and it can be found within the Alexandrian Public Resource Page on the matrix as well as Chief Jade’s and Chief Sitting Bear’s financials as required under article 4 of the Alexandria Charter.”
Chief Redeye would continue stating that this is the only fair way to over see that everyone pays their fair share and the NAA will always obey each and every tax code of the various represented regions with only a few exemptions. The biggest two being the Wealth Tax and the Corporate Tax any changes to either of those will require a submission to the NAA council and a majority vote, beyond that well it’s up to your specific country of residence and employment and my heart goes out to those in the UCAS as you have the worst Tax Code in the free world and I beg the senate to change the rules to be far simpler so the average citizen doesn’t have to see a tax professional just to pay their years taxes.
Now I can understand why the second mass casualty event could be ignored as it spawned some major news, but seriously why is no one covering this as it does seem important. Though it spawned great change throughout North America and I might say change that took way to long to happen and put a win on Prichard’s belt making damned sure he is hated by the ultra wealthy and corporations while becoming loved by the general population. His tax reform bill would also lower taxes across the board on the poor and working class, allow for further deductions, and open the door for future government aid programs. Prichard is hoping that he can increase the minimum wage and reduce the overall poverty rate within the UCAS and simultaneously reducing the crime rate within the major metropolitan areas.
When pressed about any gun regulations Prichard would simply state that he has left that in the capable hands of the UCAS Congress and trusts that Leader Canterbury would bring something acceptable to the American People to the floor of the Senate for a vote. As gun violence explodes in the UCAS and throughout the NAA regions the leaders simply hide their heads in the sand, the HPR does have some form of gun regulations but they like the rest of the NAA have some form of “Right to Bear Arms” in their charters and constitutions so good luck getting much if anything passed that won’t have some form of repercussions. The NCR is one that might be able to do something seeing it’s entire government is being elected this November, and it will be up to the first President and Vice President to appoint the judges, directors, and basically everything else that is currently being overseen by the HPR.
The UCAS and CAS well good luck with any real change happening as this has been a hot button issue for some time. Old Mexico has some extreme gun laws in place and so does the Caribbean League. Now the Southwest Trinity well that’s the Wild Wild West and basically they just love their guns down there, though they do have regulations on certain weapons…but not many. The Sioux Nation have about the same amount of regulations as the UCAS and CAS with a few exceptions, and Alexandria well they have similar restrictions as the Sioux Nation and after this war is over I doubt Alexandria will tighten it’s gun laws out of sheer fear of reprisal. So basically don’t hold your breath for any meaningful gun regulations anytime soon, as guns helped build this nation and they will always be a point of contention that many politicians simply wish to avoid during a non election year.
We have breaking news from Washington DC, Congress has just passed a bill to ratify the UCAS Constitution (Ratification) doing away with the antiquated and unnecessary Electoral College. This was something that the people have been demanding for sometime and one that even many within the Freedom Party wished abolished but simply could never get across the end zone. Well during a late night session of Congress the House and Senate both voted on the Canterbury Amendment that has already passed through the states during their special elections over the summer, and the Canterbury Amendment would pass with a majority vote in both the house and senate. Again this was a surprise seeing Minority Leader Kathrine Jones vowed to block the Amendment and make sure it died in the senate, she would be left to eat her words as multiple members of her own party would break party lines and vote yes and passing the bill to change the UCAS Constitution (Ratification).
The Bill will be signed by both President August Prichard and Vice President Arnold Malone on Monday October 30th at 12:00 pm during a ceremony in the White House, and after the UCAS Constitution (Ratification) will be altered to undo the need for the electoral college and ensuring the President and Vice President are selected by the popular vote alone. This is the second time since the Freedom Party gained control of the White House and the Congress that they have been able to alter the UCAS Constitution (Ratification). The first was when President Oliver McKeen and VP August Prichard were able to undo the Johnson Amendment that removed the First Amendment, Majority Leader Bail Canterbury would push forth the McKeen & Canterbury Amendment that would end up restoring the First Amendment rights back to the people. This was a no brainer and would be nearly unanimous on the state level, and within the House and Senate with only a few Loyalist hold outs in congress, even loyalist controlled states voted in favor of the bill.
Now it has happened again, though this time I believe it would be fear that guided the people to vote in favor of the change, seeing the Loyalist Party has been loosing favor over the last 12 years and without the Electoral College they can basically kiss the White House goodbye as the Freedom Party will most certainly secure themselves a permanent seat in the Oval Office. It seems that the times have changed and the Alexandrian Conflict has woken up the nation and the Coup of 2082 shook everyone to their core, it seems that the age of the Loyalists is over and it is now the dawn of a new age in Washington as the Freedom Party has won the hearts of the people and as long as they keep bringing forth positive change they won’t loose the majority and if they do…well break out the investigation for I smell another coup attempt coming.
Also the House and Senate have voted to dump the name of the document from the Ratification to the Constitution of the United Canadian American States and have charged the UCAS Historian Niles Wedgewood with drawing up a new document in the fashion of the original United States Constitution to be signed by the leadership of both the House and Senate, UCAS State Governors, The Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs, the General of the NAA Coalition, the Admiral of the NAA Coalition, and the President and Vice President of the UCAS. A ceremony has been planed for July 4th 2085 to be held in the Capital Building for the signing of the Document, the document will hold no further changes (other then those already passed and ratified) and will become the legal binding Constitution of the UCAS.
The NCR has scheduled it’s inauguration day for January 22nd 2085 for the duly elected President and Vice President to sworn in by 12:00 PM on the 22nd mirroring the same policies that the HPR, UCAS, and CAS have in place and they all share the same historical process from the Old United States of America. The Inauguration is currently slated to be held in Monterey Bay at the cities capital building, though depending on how the battle for Sacramento goes the entire ceremony could be moved to the capital but this depends fully on the status of the conflict and the safety of the elected officials and citizens.
The NCR will be following the same program of the HPR and having their first duly elected President and Vice President sign the Republics constitution after being sworn in. The document will be as well signed by the first Majority and Minority leader of the NCR House and Senate, General of the Coalition Maxwell Irving, Admiral of the Coalition Wilhuff Palpatine; other signers will be General of Coalition Security Douglass Howell, General Orson White, President Georgetown of the HPR, and selected Mayors from the NCR regions. In my opinion this makes me think that the NAA Coalition will be playing a far larger role within the NCR then thought prior.
I do hope that they don’t slip into an Authoritarian Military Regime, but I guess only time will tell and will be up to the people and the NAA to make sure the NCR doesn’t simply fall into another military controlled state of oppression. Though with the men the NAA and UCAS have placed in command of the Coalition Base and Forces are not known for their love of dictators with the only exception being BG Orson White if you don’t believe his claim of mind control. Otherwise even BG White is free and clear, I doubt he would have lasted as long as he has inside the Alexandrian Conflict if he was still the same man we knew when he was the scourge of Georgia.
After the ceremony whomever becomes President will become the NCR’s representative to the NAA and the Vice President will over see the NCR Senate as the leader of the Senate the NCR’s primary body of government. They will also oversee the House and act as a mediator between the two bodies of government, and the NCR House and Senate will resemble the one within the HPR and that mirrors the original that was within the United States of America. The only difference being the NCR region will be broken up into districts and each district will be able to send 2 senators to the the NCR senate and a varied amount of representatives based on population, they will as well be able to send 2 representatives to the UCAS and CAS Houses and 2 Senators to the UCAS and CAS Senates…well I guess not much is different then the original.
It will be the job of the President to appoint judges, and basically create the foundation of a new government as the HPR and UCAS will continue to lend support and people till the time a legally and properly elected President appoints replacements. I do hope that Charles Palpatine wins come November seeing he has direct experience in setting forth the foundation of a stable government and with the aid of Maximilian Yates the newly birthed NCR surly will stand the test of time. Though this is all hypothetical seeing the election hasn’t happened yet and the inauguration is still a handful of months away.
27/10/2084 – 21/12/2084:
Here I am again trying to keep the people informed as to what has been going on within the world since my last update and again it seems it’s up to me. Addison Mayweather would come on the air on October 27th 2084 where he would begin to broadcast once again over the television alongside his longtime friend and now co host Bradley Williams. Sadly Addison’s first broadcast would once again alert the nation of another mass tragedy event, we would be alerted that within Common Wealth there would be yet another breakout of the SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) and not just one but two of these events would plague the Common Wealth at 9:30am and again at 10:00am.
We would be alerted in the typical Addison Mayweather fashion very blunt and matter of fact in his reporting and totally lacking in emotion as the news should be reported….God how I missed that, Addison and Bradley make one hell of a team and we would learn that a total of 750 citizens would perish during the 9:30am incident and 1,500 during the 10am incident. They must have an amazing team behind them to gather those details as quickly as they did, well this is a multi award winning team and they are legends in the field of broadcast journalism. Mayor Archibald Kingsbury would come on the Mayweather Hour to address the people of the Common Wealth were he would state that it has come to his attention that these SADS events are related to a new piece of cyber technology that had been unregulated and untested during the time Eric Sounds and the other UCAS First fascists had seized control.
Mayor Kingsbury would directly contradict President August Prichard that continued the National State of Emergency and requested citizens to remain in there homes until the cause could be determined. Right now the shelter in place order is simply a request and many citizens are torn between believing Mayor Kingsbury or President Prichard and the UCAS government; In this reporters opinion we should simply listen to Mayor Archibald Kingsbury for he has been right numerous times before and seems less politically motivated than President August Prichard. Though Kingsbury failed to mention the specific corporation directly and stated that he and the Sons of Liberty will be investigating the claims with the direct support of the UCAS Judicial Department and UCAS Intelligence Division. Kingsbury would sign executive order 1794-H1 that would further restrict the corporations and ban the sale and implanting of the suspect piece of cyber technology…again he has failed to directly mention the specific piece of cyber-ware but I guess they don’t want to alert the targeted corporation directly and spook them.
Now the Presidential run of Charles Palpatine would start off with a bang and it would continue to rocket forward with multiple public rallies, press adds, and a very active boots on the ground door to door grass roots campaign. Between the sheer amount of volunteers the Palpatine and Yates campaign would motivate, the numerous endorsements that would come from many within the Freedom Party and Loyalist Party including POTCAS Wesley Taffer, VPOTCAS Arnold Malone, Former POTCAS Lowell Townsend, Former POTUCAS Oliver McKeen, POTUCAS August Prichard, VPOTUCAS Linda Washington, HPR President Franklin Georgetown, Alexandria Chief Redeye, Alexandria Deputy Chief Jade, Alexandria Deputy Chief Sitting Bear, Sioux Chief Grizzly, UCAS Senate Majority Leader Bail Canterbury, Mayor’s Kingsbury, Caprio, Gunner, O’Reilly, and the rest of the NAA Council; they would receive numerous other endorsements basically damning their opponents to a most certain defeat come election day.
Toss in the record amount of fundraising and the millions spent by both Palpatine and Yates personally they basically would destroy their opponents on multiple ends as they out raised and out spent them by hundreds of millions of credits. Both Charles Palpatine and Maximilian Yates would as well sign their personal business interests over to other members of their families to make sure their was zero conflict of interests, toss in the fact that neither Charles nor Maximilian would be drawing a salary during there terms if elected…they pretty much out fund raised, out spent, were out endorsed, working for free, and had the full weight of the media behind them with the likes of Addison Mayweather, Bradley Williams, and Kingsley Quinn one could basically say that it was all over but the crying and come election night there would be plenty of crying.
At 8:00am on November 7th, 2084 the polls would open with lines already forming and many that would extend for multiple blocks and the lines wouldn’t relent throughout the entire day from the polls opening till the polls closed at 9:00pm. Reporters would catch up with Charles Palpatine and his family as well as Maximillian Yates and his family as they were casting their votes in the historic first election for the NCR (New California Republic) President and Vice President. The voting process was lengthy as the entire government of the NCR was up for grabs from Mayors, Representatives, Senators, as well as many other township and county officials; with multiple measures on the ballot. The people would come out in droves for this historic election as they would be able to partake in the democratic process for the first time with many new citizens as well voting for the first time; Poll workers would be nearly overwhelmed but the systems would hold and they would work diligently through the day and into the night as the counting would begin.
Come the closing of the polls at 9:00pm and the first districts would begin reporting it would be beyond clear that the Palpatine & Yates campaign was victorious and even though mail in ballots would still be counted by 11:00 pm the election would be called for Charles Palpatine and Maximilian Yates with a clear and precise victory as they held a huge 60 point lead and as the ballots would be counted that lead would only shrink by less then 5 points. In true Palpatine fashion the victory party and speeches would be simply over the top with celebrities of all types and multiple speeches would carry on throughout the night as their supporters partied throughout the night in multiple districts. Victory speeches would begin at 1:00am once their opponents Jones & Potts would concede defeat, and as fireworks erupted throughout the NCR the newly elected officials would take to the stage with their families and the world would witness history in the making as President Elect Charles Palpatine and Vice President Elect Maximilian Yates would give some of the best addresses ever.
Now the losers would not slink away silently as they would begin to cry foul and cry election fraud and mismanagement, they would bring countless and fruitless cases to the courts, and even try to rally their supporters but unlike Eric Sounds this would simply fail and fail quickly as it would be proven and verified that the NCR election of 2084 would be a truly free and fair election. The last court case would be thrown out on December 5th and on January 6th 2085 it will be officially certified by the newly elected NCR Congress with the NAA overseeing the process to make certain everything goes according to the NCR charter. All eyes are now on the inauguration and I must say Vice President Maximilian Yates has some cute kids and Jet Kissinger-Yates will make a wonderful second lady, the NCR president is a widower and only has one son, so sadly the NCR will not have a true First Lady.
Well come Veterans Day November 11th, 2084 President August Prichard would hold an awards ceremony in the Federal District on the grounds of the White House for those Alexandrian Conflict Veterans that would survive being held prisoner within the Vulture Forge Prison Camp. The audience would contain many senators and congressmen of both the CAS and UCAS, members of the NAA, invited guests, military members, and members of the Presidents Administration as well as the Vice President. The event would be covered by Kingsley Quinn and Bradly Williams and the entire world would be watching there televisions at 12:00pm as the ceremonies would begin with an opening prayer and then multiple speeches from Attorney General Franklin Quinn, Majority Leader Bail Canterbury, Speaker Warren Mitchell, and many others as Addison Mayweather, Charles Palpatine, Orson White, Maxwell Irving, Kyle Finesilver, Maximilian Yates, Douglas Howell, and Ted Baker would be seated on the stage being praised for their heroism and bravery in the face of most certain death.
They all looked like ghosts of their former selves, frail and thin, still slightly pale, all wearing dark sunglasses as their eyes have yet to repair themselves from being forced to live in total darkness. There wounds still affecting them, and dressed within their uniforms and business dress for Addison Mayweather. Their sunglasses made them look like a bunch of blues performers and there expressionless and stoic faces would tell the true story of how they really felt about being up on that stage and being displayed before the media. After a lengthy address from President Prichard he and VP Washington would begin the official ceremonies, and this is were it goes from being very dull to being a true fireworks display as Prichard would first call Colonel Ted Baker to rise and come to the podium, Baker would step forward with a slight limp and a scowl on his face.
Oh things are about to get real and as President Prichard attempted to give Colonel Baker his Gold Star and Purple Heart…well all that could be heard as Baker covered the mic “Respectfully Buzzard, kiss my ass Sir…start giving the FIP there’s before you give this FIP his.” The President could be scene visibly annoyed by Bakers salty language and disrespect, especially when Baker simply walked away and faced the flag and saluted before giving a salute to the veterans in the audience. The crowds reaction was mixed from shock to applause, VP Linda Washington could be seen visibly smiling and giving Baker and the others the thumbs up. Needless to say this was not going to be Prichard’s finest moment as he would be rejected by the rest of the veterans and met with similar yet less salty words from the others, though General of the Coalition Maxwell Irving would be heard saying “How dare you Mr. President, respectfully you can fire me….wait you can’t as I work for the NAA, today is a day we are to pay respect to all veterans of all wars not just a chosen few…we are not tools for your reelection campaign and we are not going to accept your awards. I know I speak for everyone here and until my brothers and sisters in the Federal Immortality Project are given their awards, their benefits, their pensions, and the respect to be allowed to retire….I will not accept any awards for the Alexandrian Conflict till those before me get there’s.” he would continue ” Also before you award me for this most recent war, you best award me for the Second World War, Korean War, and the Vietnam War all of which are over a century overdue.”
Similar words could be heard from the others though General Irving’s voice carries and his accent is very hard to cover up….this reporter was waiting for the typical New Yorker “Respectfully Sir, Go Fuck Yourself!” though it didn’t come and as he would be told off basically by the others…Prichard would be left with egg on his face and he would take to the microphone to address a shocked and stunned crowd with an off the cuff speech “It seems that I haven’t taken into count how these soldiers would feel, and how much they are still upset about this countries failings and abuse of the Federal Immortality Project veterans. I have allowed politics to distract me from restoring honour to the FIP, I have forgotten how I felt all those years ago, I have forgotten how I felt in 2018 as I returned from defending London during the 2018 defense of the UK from the Inishmore…I apologize to all veterans and especially the FIP that are still being abused today. We have failed you before and we continue to fail you today through inaction. I ask no I demand the UCAS House and Senate remedy this situation before the close of the 2084 session and restore the honour of all the FIP both fallen and living, I call upon the senate to take action now and not later, I call the FIP to given what they are owed, and I call for the FIP to be allowed to choose if they continue to fight or go home and retire, the time is now for the UCAS to shed it’s skin and end the abuse of the FIP.”…..he would be met with applause and yet until the senate and house actually take action this could simply be nothing more than a way to save face and pass the buck.
Now this could have been a seriously bad situation both diplomatically, politically, and criminally for a few of those on that stage seeing they disrespected the President of the UCAS though in the end all it would do would bring forth some new sound bites such as “Respectfully Buzzard, kiss my ass Sir.” and “How dare you Mr. President.” along with others like “Nope, not gonna happen.”, “Oh I reckon Mr. President, bless your little heart.” and “Unless that box has my awards from Iwo Jima…you can stick them straight…” I can totally understand their frustration and their anger, they are all abused and forsaken members of the FIP and have been wounded, be held prisoner, and performed countless acts of heroism and bravery only to be forgotten, ignored and basically thrown out with yesterdays newspaper. To them this was a slap in the face of all the other FIP and a slap in their faces as they are only being awarded for a political boost, August Prichard is an FIP and has been forsaken just like them and spent his time as Vice President fighting alongside President McKeen on behalf of the FIP and suddenly he forgets and not only insults the FIP he brings forth some of the nations eldest FIP onto the stage and tries insult them on the one of the few days of the year they hold dear and for many on that stage…November 11th is a painful day for them.
Taking a hard look at the ones on that stage and the direct family they have that are as well FIP veterans and have as well suffered and been denied their medals, benefits, pay, and pension…many of whom should have been awarded the Medal of Honor and countless purple hearts; this list includes Wilhuff Palpatine, Montgomery Palpatine, Dover Palpatine, Reverdy Jamestown, Rusty Rutherford, Tullius Kissinger, Ralph Rivers, Sherman Finesilver, Reggie Irving, Franklin Quinn, Kingsley Quinn, Arthur Swanson, Alvin Webster, Carol Webster, Avery Webster, Tudor Yates, Marvin Yates, Arthur Rummy, Russel Bookman, Arthur Crane, Adolf Gunner, William Gunn, Edgar Grayson, Sly Grimm, Hershel Meisner, Oakley Roper, Bail Canterbury, NJ Rivers, Albert Schwartz, Kentucky Schwartz, Alva Palpatine, Wesley Taffer, Sid Malone, Shelby Malone, Arnold Malone, Jeffery Copper, Elmer Canterbury, Dwight Schultz, Brian Kindler, and Rudolph Malone with many and I mean many others that are direct and close family friends. This doesn’t include the tens of thousands of surviving FIP veterans living within the known world and within the NAA, and the countless of fallen and forgotten by all but those they served with.
So the anger, frustration, and rage that has been building up within the seven men on that stage for all these years is totally understandable and for it finally boil over on Veterans Day of all days is understood and expected seeing they were simply being paraded out like toy soldiers once again. Now do I think Prichard and Washington did this blindly…nope, they are seasoned politicians and Linda Washington made her career fighting on behalf of the FIP; honestly I believe this was totally expected and they picked the batch that would be less likely to simply roll over and accept the awards. Seeing many of the above list is still fighting within the Alexandrian Conflict…for fucks sake, Attorney General Franklin Quinn was on that stage and he didn’t look all to pleased at the days events and so was Majority Leader Bail Canterbury and I am really surprised he simply played along with the ceremonies and even gave a compelling speech.
I could only imagine if they grabbed Patrick O’Reilly, Russel Bookman, Sherman Willard, Reggie Irving, Rodger Nelson, Oakley Doyle, or Tracy Appleton and not to mention Arthur Rummy as those FIP are not known for mincing words. The nicest of the list I just mentioned would be Rodger Nelson and maybe Oakley Doyle and that is really grabbing at straws…nope it would be those captured and honestly the words of Maxwell Irving, Ted Baker, Orson White, Douglas Howell, Kyle Finesilver, Maximilian Yates, Addison Mayweather, and Charles Palpatine will live on forever and hopefully ignited a few fires under the asses of the members of congress…also upsetting the media megastar Addison Mayweather is sheer death to any politicians career and when Mayweather left the ceremony he didn’t look all to pleased and that should worry any and all sitting member of congress as I can only imagine the next few months of dedicated broadcasts….”How The FIP Got Screwed….The UCAS’s Forsaken Hero’s”….well here comes his next Pulitzer and maybe a third Nobel.
Now onto some actual good news and this is actually amazing news and will warm the hearts of the millions of citizens within the NAA. The Alexandrian Conflict is over…I said it the War Is Over!! The Axis forces would surrender after multiple months of brutal and bloody fighting, the final few months of the Alexandrian Conflict would be some of the bloodiest and brutal of the entire conflict and on December 8th, 2084 exactly nine years after the first shots of the war would be fired the Axis Forces would officially surrender.
The 15th Island Battalion led by Major Taylor Greenspan would suffer the greatest casualties as they were tasked with the forward push into the Axis city of Eagle Forge within the Salish-Shidhe and after many grueling and brutal months of chemical attacks, suicide bombers, and basically having buildings toppled on them. The Derelict Squad being led by First Sargant Jeffery Ashmore (a squad named by the former 15th Island commander General Orson White in the early days of the war), would pierce Eagle Ridge and capture the Axis commander Regent General Darrel Huckabee and his family within the compounds executive boardroom. The capture of Huckabee and the rest of the Axis board members would systematically destroy the morale of the remaining officers and soldiers and one by one the Axis forces would lay down their weapons within Eagle Ridge and after a few more days of fighting the Allied Forces of the NAA would capture Eagle Ridge and bring the war to an end on December 8th 2084.
Also on December 8th, the NCR forces with the assistance of the NAA coalition forces would finally capture Sacramento and push the warlords and other undesirables further north into the still contested regions of California. According to the NAA spokeswomen Christiania Mulligan “The rats of the lawless lands will eventually be rounded up and brought to justice, the days of the CFS are over and the day of anarchist rule have come to a close. The NCR with the aid of the NAA will open a new book and begin a new chapter in California’s history and we will help restore law and order, democracy, and free market to the once fully corporate controlled and anarchist ruled region of North American.” The NCR is hoping to have the city cleared out and fully secured before the inauguration ceremonies, they are hoping to restore democracy by restoring the states once capital as the capital of the NCR and converting the Governors Mansion and Lt Governors Mansion into the NCR version of the White House and VP’s residence.
Though as the war in Alexandria might officially be over, there is continued pockets of fighting throughout many of the regions and it will be sometime before the NAA officially pulls all of it’s troops out. So for now many soldiers will still remain deployed within the contested regions and act as peacekeepers, while others get to return home the NAA officially stated that they will begin sending troops home on Friday December 15th, 2084 with those that have been deployed the longest being the first to be sent home. This news has brought joy to the people as many will be seeing their loved ones just in time for the holidays, while for others the holidays will be bitter sweet seeing this war has left the nation forever scared and with over five million dead and tens of million wounded or displaced. The war might be over but this is now the time for healing and hopefully the NAA is able to maintain peace and prevent another large scale war. President Prichard and President Taffer announced that the Draft was officially over on December 8th, 2084 and thanked each and every citizen for their dutiful and dedicated service. They as well reminded the people that simply because the draft is over they still need to register with the Selective Services Department come their 18th birthday…how to kill the mood Mr. Presidents.
Now begins the negotiations between the NAA about how to divide up the concurred land and as of right now it seems that Alexandria, Sioux Nation, and the UCAS will divide up the once Salish-Shidhe. The UCAS, Rebel City, and Alexandria will divide up the once Tir Tangier. The CAS and Southwest Trinity will divide the once Pueblo Nation. The NCR, Southwest Trinity, and UCAS will divide up the once Ute Nation. Old Mexico will absorb much of the once Aztlan with the CAS being given the northern regions that was once contested territory. The HPR will absorb the Baha Peninsula, and the islands of the coast of once Aztlan. While the northern tribal lands will be returned to the UCAS.
Basically the entirety of the western half of North America will be redrawn over the next few months as the NAA Council continues to write history.
Alexandria would reelect Chief Redeye and Deputy Chiefs Jade and Sitting Bear on November 7th 2084.
The Sioux Nation would reelect Chief Grizzly on November 7th 2084
The NAA has voted to declare December 8th to be a North American Regional Holiday of Remembrance simply called “Remembrance Day” the independent regions are expected to fully adopt December 8th as a national holiday as well in accordance with the NAA’s wishes.
The UCAS senate is still gridlocked in debates and filibusters staling any progress with President Prichard’s request for giving the FIP there due. It doesn’t seem likely that they will be able to come to an agreement before congress recess for the Christmas Break and the end of the 2084 session, if they don’t they will have to take it up at the start of the 2085 session with a new congress and honestly it seems to be another lost cause.
The Mayweather Hour and the Inquisition have seen a rise in ratings as the daily program has been applying the pressure to the lawmakers and turning the screws with congresses in action during the last month regarding the FIP bills. Addison and Bradley have the will of the people behind them, and the CAS has already pushed through a bill to undo any and all of the damage caused by the FIP. They have given all CAS FIP citizens the ability to submit a formal request with the defense department to have there records unsealed and reviewed by an independent council, and they have already begun awarding medals, benefits, pensions, and backpay to the living veterans of the FIP. While all fallen will be post humorously given their awards and an agreed lump sum will be awarded to the living next of kin, if no next of kin can be found the lump sum will be placed in a trust that will be used to support multiple veterans affairs charitable organizations.
The UCAS can feel the pressure being applied by Addison Mayweather and Bradley Williams as well as President Wesley Taffer and Vice President Arnold Malone, and even with the will of the people behind them many within Congress still block any legislation that will bring an end to the abuse and suffering of the FIP. President August Prichard stated that if nothing is done before the years end he will sign an executive order to at least award all FIP their owed Purple Hearts and any award already approved through the Armed Services Committee. He can’t do anything about the benefits, pensions, back pay, and medical seeing he needs congressional approval when it comes to any form of spending…he can at least award the purple hearts, and other medals and awards through executive action. He is also pressuring Majority Leader Canterbury and Speaker Mitchell to not recess for the holiday till something is passed and he does threaten to veto anything that is simply an insult to the FIP and a political hack job.
On December 16th there would be yet another case SADS within the North America this one would be felt throughout the entirety of the North America that would take the lives of over 100,000+ lives in a blink of an eye. The numbers are yet to be fully tallied but only a few hours after the SADS incident within the Federal District that would kill 500 mostly within the regions law enforcement, government, and education system; the Attorney General had already stated that the UCAS Justice Department would be investigating the corporate involvement and the piece of cyber tech that Mayor Kingsbury mentioned back in October of 2084. AG Quinn stated that the investigation is still ongoing and they will publish their results once they have further evidence, as of right now all signs point to a company that has been pushed out of the NCR and is based within Japan called Cyber-Corps and they have offices in Japan, China, Korea, India, and Northern California.
The executions of the UCAS First terrorists would begin just before Thanksgiving 2084 and have been ongoing daily with multiple condemned being sent to the firing squad or being hanged. The UCAS has even begun hiring hangmen to serve as executioners seeing the sheer amount of condemned is to great for the current sanctioned and licensed executioners. The UCAS has begun a Hangmen’s school and will be offering a license and paycheck to anyone that first qualifies for the program, passes the psychological evaluation, and graduates from the courses with a 90% or higher grade on the final examination. This will land the new executioner with a paycheck of 1,000 credits + travel expenses per hanging, they will also be given a government pension once their services are no longer needed. The UCAS Justice Department stated that do to the war, the UCAS First Coup, and the back log caused by the collapse of the Executioners Guild the current legally sanctioned hangmen of the UCAS are seriously over worked and even the legendary Hang High Martin is having a hard time keeping up the pace, even doing multi drops. Their are tens of thousands that have been condemned to die and their appeals are up or in the case of the war criminals well their is no more room at the inn and not enough trained men to perform the task quickly and humanly.
21/12/2084 – 26/12/2084:
Well we have headline news and sorry for the delay in reporting as I have been very busy checking the facts before putting it to print. The North American Alliance (NAA) has proven that it can actually get something done besides bickering amongst each other like good little diplomats, the NAA headed by the UCAS Justice Department has begun it’s crack down on the Nuke Ring within the Southern Valley Region of the NCR (New California Republic) formerly the California Free State (CFS). According to the press release from Attorney General Franklin Quinn the UCAS Justice Department has been working in tandem for over a year with there allies in the NAA to bring down this ring known as FTW Tribe (Fuck The World). In a joint effort with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), National Security Agency (NSA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and, Federal Marshals Division (FMD) alongside the NAA Enforcement Bureau have begun to apprehend the FTW Tribe members and bring the Nuke Ring to justice.
On December 23rd, 2084 the FMD would enter the NCR to deliver arrest and search warrants of the various ring members homes, over the course of many hours FBI, DEA, and Federal Marshals stormed the homes of nine minors all part of the FTW Tribe to execute arrest and search warrants based on evidence collected during the year long investigation. Nuke Crimes have been declared a NAA Emergency and have been part of Franklin Quinn’s agenda since before he was sworn into office as the Attorney General. Quinn states “Nuke is a devastating drug with an even greater impact on those that use it than any other drug grown or created in a lab and this includes the digital crack known as BTL (Better Than Life) chips. I am happy to be part of this investigation and I am even happier that the NAA has recognized the severity of Nuke and the ease of it’s cooking.” He continues ” Since it’s inception Nuke has been on my radar and something I have worked my entire career to bring down, I have watched it start in it’s rawest form and colours of Red and Blue and from their as the years go by, the chemicals become more readily available and the demand increases for greater profits, stronger drugs, and so on…the colours have adapted and newer strains are born. Now the original Red and Blue are so basic that nobody really cooks them anymore, the profit margin is simply not there, we now have designer Nuke and the newest Robo that has a chrome colour is the most lethal and addictive.
We in the NAA have worked hard to bring an end to Nuke and through the ongoing work of Vice President Elect Maximillian Yates bringing this epidemic to the attention of the DEA and FBI we have been able to tear down the Nuke industry one ring at a time. Through strict enforcement, stricter laws and penalties, and a mandatory murder charge applied to all dealers that sell a dose that causes an over dose death. The benefit of Nuke is it remains in the system for sometime after death, the chemical DNA pattern is easily traceable and has a long shelf life, this has allowed the NAA to execute multiple Nuke dealers, traffickers, and producers. Though like any good mouse trap, there is always a bigger rat and we need to be smarter then the criminals in order to stop this from becoming a NAA Pandemic.”
Quinn continued to ramble on for another few minutes, though I can break down what he is trying to say for my readers without the legal and political jargon. Nuke is listed as a Class 1 Federal substance throughout the NAA and carries multiple penalties depending on the colour. All carry a death sentence if there is an overdose and law enforcement can track it to a specific dealer and strain, though beyond that the charges and penalties vary. Nuke is weighed in Grams and hence the more the dealer has the harsher the charge and stiffer the sentence, most dealers will carry a few ounces on them to avoid the harshest of charges, though the street value being Ten Thousand credits per Gram for the most desired colours with Robo being the most valuable and worth nearly Twenty Thousand credits per Gram and only a dram needed to achieve a high that could be the users last. Robo Nuke is the purest of the strains and hence the most lethal if taken, reports indicate that a user can overdose on their first use of Robo either by a sever cardiac event that causes the heart to rip apart or cardiac failure from the crash and falling into a coma and eventual death is the normal outcome for Robo overdoses.
The high is supposed to be epic for those willing to take the ride, though most users don’t survive long after becoming addicted to Robo Nuke and the body count is starting to pile up with this newest strain and it has kickstarted the NAA into full gear to not only stop it but bring an end to Nuke completely. Nuke carries with it the charges of Attempted Treason, Treasonous Actions, and the worst is left for the cooks and traffickers as they get charged with Crimes Against Humanity, and a laundry list of other charges that will either end with the suspect being executed or being locked up in a federal super max prison for centuries and they will die in prison. Nuke charges can not be plea bargained and carry a mandatory sentence requirement even if the suspect pleads guilty, this is one substance you never want to be caught with; it doesn’t matter if it’s the original base colours or the new Robo….the book will be tossed at the defendant.
So with that out of the way when it comes to the FTW Tribe and the multiple arrests on the 23rd of December 2084, this would shock the nation that a Nuke ring was being run by minors and the kingpin and cook being a ten year old genius. I do feel for the minors family as they have to know that their child will be eventually executed if found guilty, the UCAS Federal Marshals arrested nine members of the ring and have charged them all with everything under the sun including as of the writing of this article six counts of willful murder. The FTW ring was transferred to the FDC to face arraignment before a federal arraignment judge and all nine would plead not guilty at the time, though big news is one of the minors was actually being represented by former Kentucky State Attorney General and Former Federal Court Judge Wendell Flanigan.
Mr. Flanigan Esq. must be one damned good attorney as he was able to get the UCAS Attorney General himself to agree to a hefty bail, and strict terms for release; while the other eight would be remanded with no bail. According to Mr. Flanigan Esq. he simply responded to reporters with “No Comment.” though based on the presence of Vice President Elect at the bail hearing we can assume that one of the minors is one of the VP elects children. The bail was set at nearly three billion credits, cash no bond and after a phone call the minors bail was posted and he would be released into the custody of his father and attorney with the stipulation that he be under the watchful eye of Director Rusty Palpatine of the FMD.
We have been able to uncover the minor is one Anakin Yates and he has been as well charged with production and possession of over 12 kilos of Robo Nuke, 5 kilos of Confetti Nuke, 4 kilos of Red and Green, as well as selling 4 kilos of red and blue to a federal DEA agent. Anakin has been charged as an adult and will be facing multiple death sentences if found guilty, and these are only the ones coming from the UCAS, the rest of the NAA has yet to file charges against Anakin Yates. The other eight minors would all change their pleas to Guilty and agree to testify against Anakin as the ringleader and kingpin of the FTW Tribe, there names are being withheld as part of the guilty plea deal. Though according to sources all eight are still facing multiple willful murder charges that carry the death penalty of either hanging or firing squad, as of the writing of this article Attorney General Quinn has yet to announce if he is seeking the death penalty in any of the cases.
Okay lets fast forward to Christmas Day 2084, and yes this counts as a separate article for those keeping track. Anakin Yates’s bail agreement included surrendering passports, cred chips, all electronic devices, maintaining a 3.8 GPA, home confinement, as well not being within 100 feet of an electronic device. He was also under the watchful eye of his uncle Rusty Palpatine who resides part time within the NCR, also that family has some very powerful people within it and it is a surprise that this flew under the nose of many of them. Though with the Alexandrian Conflict and many serving in the war and returning wounded it can be explained how former FBI Director Wilhuff Palpatine, NSA Director Dover Palpatine, FMD Director Rusty Palpatine, Former Kentucky AG Wendell Flanigan, Retired Captain Tullius Kissinger of the SPD Organized Crime Division, General Maxwell Irving, General Orson White, MI7 00 agent Arthur Swanson, Chief Redeye, Sub-Chief Jade, and President Elect Charles Palpatine and not to mention the other adults in that house…mind you the Chiefs are only visiting as they reside in Alexandria could miss this, though the NSA only became involved after the arrests and the discovery of the Nuke lab.
Well on Christmas Day Anakin Yates would break bail by using a hidden electronic device to reach out to other members of the FTW Tribe in an attempt to escape custody and a most certain death sentence upon his 18th birthday (UCAS and CAS Only). The attempt was detected by his ankle monitor and as Anakin would be fleeing to a waiting car, Director Rutherford and VP Elect Maximillian Yates would engage on foot after Anakin. Automatic fire would erupt from the awaiting vehicle and nearly kill Director Rutherford, and the VP elect, a firefight would commence between R. Palpatine, M. Yates, M. Irving, O. White, A. Mayweather, and M. Palpatine Jr. The magical skills of the soon to be First Son Logan Palpatine and his barriers would prevent the suspects from fleeing and prevent his cousin Anakin from being killed in a hail of gunfire.
Reports indicate that R. Palpatine, M. Yates, M. Irving, O. White, and A. Mayweather were severely injured in the attempt to detain Anakin and the shooters, also injured would be Dr. Kyle Finesilver MD who was performing emergency medicine on R. Palpatine and Archibald Kingsbury who was visiting for the holidays while he was performing life saving medical procedures on M. Yates. Three of the four suspects where killed at the scene and the forth was arrested by Hawaiian Peoples Republic (HPR) troopers as the crime was committed on Hawaiian land, the forth suspect was turned over to the UCAS Marshals and was transferred to a NCR hospital and is listed in critical condition. Former HPR President pulled rank and refused to allow the wounded to be transferred to an NCR hospital and kept them on site and taken to the HPR medical ward being staffed by Doctors S. Finesilver and M. DiCane. Anakin would be taken into custody and transferred to the local NCR Southern Valley Police Station before being transferred to Sacramento.
After the attempted escape AG Quinn demanded Anakin’s bail be surrendered and he would announce that he will be seeking the death penalty for all members of the FTW Tribe, though Anakin might be in for some further trouble seeing the HPR and NCR are as well filing charges for attempted assassination of Presidents and VP elect Charles Palpatine and Maximilian Yates, the CAS is seeking attempted assassination charges of President Wesley Taffer who was there celebrating the holidays with family and friends, and the Common Wealth is seeking attempted assassination charges of Mayor Archibald Kingsbury; though according to Mayor Kingsbury he states he is fine, it was a grazing wound and he does not wish to seek charges against Anakin Yates.
Anakin’s attorney was able to get his client transferred to the Sacramento Psychiatric Hospital for review before being transferred to the UCAS Federal District, claiming that Anakin suffers from delusions, and doesn’t understand reality from fantasy, he is just a ten year old boy that is too damned smart for his own good; Flanigan states that he believes after multiple interviews with his client that Anakin is unequipped and unfit to stand trial as he doesn’t understand the gravity and severity of the charges and keeps comparing everything to a video game. Though based on our next story I feel Mr. Flanigan will have his work cut out for him…yes my reader this continues and this next story is still ongoing so I will give you what I was able to get.
Now onto later that night…yes Christmas Night, and somehow through some ritual sorcery those wounded earlier in the day are up and moving…I would hate to be them once their bosses learn they can take a liking and keep on going. Reports indicate that up in Alexandria a child would be kidnapped and a ransom note would be left for the Alexandrian Defense Force Fluffy. Fluffy would report that his son Edwardo was abducted and the note would demand them to hand over all the Nuke Evidence the ADF has collected in the ongoing Robo Epidemic. This prompted Chief Redeye and Sub-Chiefs Jade and Sitting Bear to send a distress call to the NCR and do to some crazy technology ADF pilot Carrol Webster would leave the NCR and in a matter of hours would land in Alexandria with M. Irving, O. White, A. Mayweather and M. Palpatine Jr.
The ADF would put together a sting operation to rescue Edwardo and bring the abductors to justice, well long and the short of it this led to a multi unit task force between the ADF and the Santa Fe Ring and they would not only discover that the boy was being held at a roach motel on the outskirts of Seattle Metro on old highway 31, that was known for human trafficking. ADF Agents Sapphire (M. Yates), M. Irving, O. White, M. Palpatine Jr, E. Blackfoot, and Gabe would bust into the kidnappers room (three in all) in an attempt to detain them. The three kidnappers 2 males and 1 female would open fire on the ADF and they would return fire and bravely engage the criminals, once the smoke cleared the one of the kidnappers would be killed from multiple shots from the ADF agents and basically two of them using shotguns…not much is assumed to be left of that one, another was critically wounded and the third was arrested without injury. The suspect known only as Cat would be killed at the scene and the other two would be transferred to Alexandria Medical, the critically wounded one would die on the table and go to his grave only known as Silver Sword.
ADF agents would also detain an NCR citizen that works at the Sacramento Psychiatric Hospital Prison Ward and has been yet to be charged with any crime. Sadly Edwardo would not be so lucky as the child was found dead with a slit throat, and evidence of sexual abuse. Alexandria’s council of chiefs has filed a motion to invoke Tribal Privilege upon all suspects in the abduction and murder of Edwardo, the ongoing Nuke Investigation, and let me tell you Tribal Justice is not friendly and they don’t care if your a child or not. Alexandrian Prosecutor Yale Princeton Esq. will be heading the prosecution and the investigation will be conducted by the Alexandrian Sheriffs Office in a joint effort with the ADF. Sheriff Beckett Whitefoot states “Alexandria is a peaceful and trusting nation, we don’t tolerate crimes like this against our citizens especially our children, I will do my best to make damned sure no stone is left unturned and with the aid of ADF Marshal Montague Hernández we will bring this case to a close and bring all guilty parties before the Chiefs to stand trial. I might not be one for the death penalty but in this case, I will proudly tie the bastards to the poles myself and hand Chief Redeye the knife personally.”
ADF Spokesmen Mortimer Jetson stated “Alexandria is a welcoming community, we welcome all into our flock and tribe, we are a peaceful nation, and we are saddened by the murder of Edwardo and how someone can come into Alexandria and do something so vicious and callous and what’s worse is the suspects where all children themselves. We have a zero tolerance policy for Nuke in Alexandria and anyone caught selling, producing, or trafficking Nuke within our boarders is swiftly brought to justice, put on trial, and if convicted they are swiftly hanged. We have watched too many of our citizens suffer and die do to this narcotic, we like other nations have a Robo crisis but in our nation we are making damned sure that it stays out and those that bring it in…..well they end up being visited by the spirit horse as they swing with a broken neck.”
From what I know about Alexandria law and their punishments, lets just say they take the death penalty very seriously and don’t hand it out all that frequently if at all. Nuke is a new problem for them as they have only really dealt with the Robo strain and like every other nation in the NAA they took a swift and brutal stance in order to stamp out the problem before it becomes a epidemic and kills more of their people. Though they have one punishment for high crimes and well Nuke classifies, and so does felony kidnapping, and felony murder; there are a few and I mean very few other crimes that can land a poisoner on what they call “The Pole” this is a sentence where the condemned is tied to a pole, a strap across their forehead keeping them snug against the pole, and then the Chief approaches, asks for any last words and in a single motion slices the prisoners throat from ear to ear deep so they suffocate and bleed out. Alexandrians, Sioux, and Apache consider this a repayment to the mother as the blood of the condemned flows back into the earth and cleanses the evil soul for there return into the wheel. The body is then cremated and the ashes disposed off.
This is a very brutal form of execution and as it is part of tribal law and only handed out to the most severe of cases the NAA overlooks it’s inhumane nature, seeing death is not painless and not quick…also the condemned has to look the executioner in the eye and stare down the tribal paint and headdress worn by the Chief for the purposes of the execution…oh they also scalp the condemned after the throat is slashed and while they are still bleeding out. The scalps are then displayed in the Longhouse as a warning and show of Justice being served, in all the years Redeyes been Chief he has had to perform this execution only twice in quite sometime and once just after the war started. So basically only three times in decades so one can say this will be one to follow and no they don’t do this publicly and it won’t be televised…also don’t think of sneaking into Alexandria to witness this, cause it will only land you in jail for sometime.
Now that’s all I have currently my readers, as this case unfolds I will report further and I do hope this Nuke situation and the FTW Tribe is brought to justice regardless of the nation that gets to dispense justice it will be well deserved.
January 5, 2085
Holy fucking crap! Ok ok ok, I know I know I know. Gotta calm down – but seriously nobody is going to believe us. Well, here it is anyway. So my buddy Jake comes by with the new edition of Duty Called and we pop it into play. There are supposed to be some cool updates this time – it’s based on the Alexandrian Conflict and you can unlock the commanders like Pale Rider, Shadow, Chronic, Bilbo, Jersey Devil, and more! I’m looking forward to killing people as the Invincible One and tearing down the bad establishment as Hacksaw! Now that I think about it, there were a lot of Harbingers involved in this one… But when we put in the game it was fucking bricked! Well, sort of. What came up was a hell of a lot more interesting. Thanks Agent White – wait, isn’t he unlockable too?! Anyway, on to what we saw on the recording. Before I start, yes I know this is going to sound a bit nuts, but I’m not a faker or a copier. This shit happened and now I believe those guys from the older posts. Holy shit this world is all kinds of fucked up, but I guess even camera guys take a break during war.
Ok, so this thing opens up to an SUV heading out of what looks like somewhere in the nice section of Seattle. Wait, what’s that on the news… Oh shit yeah it’s definitely in Seattle. Based on the news broadcast (with worse footage) it was somewhere on the outskirts of the Waterways base. Figures – it came from Agent White so it must be Harbinger related and they own that section of town (UCAS my ass – Seattle doesn’t take their shit – we kicked their asses repeatedly!). There is this SUV coming down the road and it gets nailed by this big ass lifted truck. The truck comes down the wrong way off an access road, throws on its high beams (which look way too bright to be stock) and nails the shit out of the driver’s side of the SUV. They were clearly aiming for it, so this must have been some sort of hate crime. Wait, definitely a hate crime – that’s Fusion driving! Anyway, this truck knocks them into the ditch behind one of the barriers to the Emerald River. First starts the automatic weapon fire, and then the barrier to the river blows! Ok, no longer a hate crime, this is clearly an assassination (attempt) and the people in that vehicle were seriously about to die. No surprise though, Fusion is known for his explosions. Between the vehicle being on its side, crushed, riddled with bullet holes, and now filling with water it wasn’t looking good. Guess the Harbingers must have pissed off Colonial – wonder how many will disappear.
Speaking of disappearing, we gotta talk about something real quick. Look, I don’t know why, but most of the people in these videos have their faces blurred. Not sure if it’s part of the footage, some magic ability, or a cover-up, but if I can see them I will name them. Otherwise, they will just be mentioned as a dude or a chick.
Then some dude ninja warriors his ass down the side of the ditch, pops out a purple lightsaber, and begins cutting away the SUV door. They pop open the vehicle and just before it starts washing down the ditch to the water grate two grappling lines can be seen. One is ADF agent Fluffy (I think) carrying – holy shit – that’s Major Greenspan! The other hook is from the lightsaber guy and he is carrying the two from the front. Looks like they get up to the bridge just in time as the SUV they were in starts washing away – well until it hits the grate. Can anyone say flood incoming?
Now you might think that this was the end of the story – a botched assassination from the Patriots. But nope! When they want someone gone they really go at it! Get a load of what happened next!
So the guy with the two in the front pulls out a phone, dials something, and then drops it. Then he’s gone. Not sure where – damn runners. The paramedics show up, but while they pull up the Regulators turn up in the area, and let’s just say they make a ruckus which seems to get all the rubberneckers to leave – though it does take a few moments. They probably don’t know it, but they saved a lot of lives (just don’t tell them or they won’t do it again). As the onlookers are being “convinced” to go away the paramedics take a turn for the worse. Not sure what they were up to, but clearly no good. As they are beginning to work on the two from the front I can see their wired and tac computers beginning to move to defend them from these weird-looking devices that the two grays are pulling out. The normal paramedics seem a bit strange too. They are just kind of on autopilot and not even responding normally. Peaches picks up on it first and although it looks like he is moving to calm down the other two, it is clear shortly after that these guys are enemies.
As I said, Peaches puts himself between the gray and the guys on the ground, but soon after he isn’t far from them. The gray guy pulls out this device and tases the shit out of Peaches. Now I say tase, but I swear on my life when he gets tased I can legit see his skeleton like in those Star Wars movies… Well, I guess that Silver Sword was right cause, well, that can wait. On with the story for now. So Peaches goes full on Luke Skywalker and then out of nowhere the guy from before appears (at least I think its the same guy, same dress at least), but this time with a blue glowing staff, and he cracks one of the medics in the skull. Looked like it hurt since he hit him on his left and blood came out the other ear. Just after, out of literally nowhere, some device appears and incapacitates the second medic. Not sure where it came from (it looked like a person, but it was too fast for the cameras), but it almost looked like a shuriken in the one frame I can see it (yeah – they weren’t kidding about cyber making you fast holy crap these guys can literally move between frames) but explodes into a green energy that knocks the guy out hard. When his body hit the ground I thought it was gonna dent the pavement hard.
Now, not to be outdone by this shuriken or a staff Peches grabs – get this – a car axle and finishes off the remaining conscious medic. Just to make a point, I said car axle! Not a piece of one, the whole fucking thing. What is he, a troll?! That sounds like something Tigger would do! Well, again, you would think that’s the end. Nope! This shit gets weirder.
As the last of the medics drops you would think it’s all good, but again you can’t put down the Patriots that easy. When the undercover plan goes awry they send in the Ronin. Now, I have seen pictures and videos of Ronin and as well seen videos of runners like these engaging large numbers of them and standing a chance. These things must be at the next level. There were only 4 of them, but 1 volley of automatic fire nearly killed all of them. Truthfully I don’t know if the two on the ground survived since they were downed and still got hit with a full auto burst (seriously – what did they do to piss off Colonial?!). Peaches got nailed, but while the bullets didn’t seem to do much he did hit the ground hard (though he used it to get on top of the other two so that they wouldn’t get hit further). The guy standing with the staff got nailed pretty hard too but had the opposite. His clothing and body got shredded, but he remained standing. Then dropped the staff and pulled two sabers (confirmed the guy from earlier) and took a defensive position. To be honest, It looks pretty bad for these guys here seeing as another volley is about to fire. Strangely Agent Fluffy was completely ignored – I guess Colonial doesn’t have an issue with Alexandria, just some of the operatives that work for her.
As what looked like would be the final blast to end these operatives a pickup truck enters the fray and nails one of the Ronin so hard the top half comes clean off the body and falls down into the now-forming river below. Guess this one has a sense of humor as he yells out the truck “Miss me yet?”. Though I am curious, why didn’t the bottom half move too? Now that I think about it these bullets are way faster than any I’ve ever heard of, must be some new DAOD super high-velocity gun. The cyber looked like it materialized out of their arms holy crap that’s gotta be some high-tech shit. Guess the guy with the saber must be a mage since at almost the same time as the truck hit the one he moved his hand and (albeit slowly in comparison to everything else) another Ronin was dragged off the bridge (this turned out to be a mistake later…).
Now I know what you are thinking – half of the Ronin are gone so they should be fine. Yeah, while I can’t see the details of their faces I can tell you that they know they aren’t in the clear yet. As the second volley opens, just in a nick of time, two individuals land from using their JETPACKS and take the brunt of the shots aimed at their friends. They don’t look like they are enjoying it, but the rounds (despite shredding one of the President’s Men and we know they don’t run crap armor) seem to be “tinking” off their suits. Looks like vibrations are still a problem, but I would take that over holes too. Where do I get one of those?
As they arrive things start to turn for the better. Turns out the core group lasted long enough for the “cavalry” to arrive. There are two snipers (again, can’t tell who they are) wielding VERY different weapons. The one is wielding a Winchester rifle and takes out a Ronin with only a shot or two. The other is using some sort of weird futuristic gun and he, along with one of the Jetpack users, fire upon and destroy the last of them. Again, you would think all is good, but you would still be wrong.
As they are starting to move the downed individuals into the truck we follow up on the Ronin that fell into the drink. A new update to those who are fans of these damn things (I know you cosplayers are out there) is that they apparently have the ability to breathe underwater and their guns don’t seem to care about physics. The (apparently not) drowning Ronin starts firing up through the bridge at the driver who starts doing the dance of “oh fuck” while the bullets tear into his legs. The saber guy then pulls, from under what little is left of his armor, an arm-mounted rocket launcher and sends a rocket into the Ronin below. Again, physics would usually decree this a bad idea… Except this rocket doesn’t seem to explode – yup folks that’s right it looks like these people have been able to make a rocket that is a mini rigger killer as when it hits the water you can see the electricity (I think) spreading throughout and disabling the last enemy.
So if they finished off the enemy why are they still running away as fast as possible? Well, again, you can’t put the Patriots down that easily. As the injured rush into the truck we see the two people with Jetpacks take off with haste. One of them meets up with one of the snipers and gets into another truck to retreat. Why you ask? Two reasons. First, they are still being chased as two black LTD sedans are careening toward them. Second, again another rumor has been confirmed. When destroyed, Ronin blow the fuck up! These seem worse since they looked like four mini-nukes!
As our victims(?) are getting away – and seriously why does this camera not catch any of their faces – they find themselves still in the shit. Both trucks are being fired at by, wait where did those come from, machine guns on the front of the LTDs (and where the hell did they find them, they haven’t been produced in over 100 years!), and let’s just say the people riding in the bed were not exactly happy.
The truck with our (most) injured operatives immediately takes off like a bat out of hell! I’ve heard of off-roading, but trucks shouldn’t be able to weave in and out of the trees in the woods! I’m not kidding! At one point the driver takes a super hard turn (no idea how the vehicle didn’t flip) and sends himself careening up and down small cliffs, gullies, and other naturally forming obstacles to eventually lose their pursuers. To be fair when I say lose I mean that they tried to make the same turn and their car met a tree and an explosion very quickly. Honestly, I’m looking at this footage and I have no idea how the truck made it through. This truck must have a super powerful engine and a separate axle for each wheel cause there is no way it should be able to climb up and down the terrain that it did.
The other truck with our sniper second sniper and another operative I didn’t see initially has an additional two members for support. A dude and… wait is that a dog? Ok, that is a dog. Well, either this guy is friends with a shifter or is rich as hell. Unlike the first truck that lost its LTD this one isn’t as lucky. Guess they only have one really good truck. This one however had its own advantage – warriors that weren’t on death’s door (yet). The futuristic rifle guy and this dude with a cigarette (we will get to that later believe me) begin opening up on the LTD. Now, I have seen armored vehicles before (go look back at the earlier parts of this post), but these are beyond armored. I swear it looks like as they shoot it almost none of the bullets are doing a damn thing. I swear it almost looks like the car is trying to repair itself.
Now I said we would get to the cigarette, and now it’s time. I guess someone has quite the nicotine addiction since WHILE being shot at with full auto fire while standing in the bed of the truck that isn’t moving in a controlled or slow manner he decides it’s time to reload, and on top of that, he has finished his cigarette. While reloading his gun he pulls out another cigarette, sticks it in his mouth, and then uses the barrel of his rifle, while still reloading mind you, to light his cigarette. In case you were wondering, no this is not a good idea! The other guy just fires but this one decides he has time for a smoke! God these operatives are crazy.
The other one decides instead of comfort to start worrying since the LTD isn’t getting destroyed. While I can’t hear what they are saying (no sound) I can tell you that the “sane” operative decides to swap weapons. Now I know what you are thinking, cause I was thinking it too. Why would you put down the futuristic rifle that is firing god knows what. The answer? Hold on. I know you are going to think I’m crazy. He pulls out a disintegrater pistol. How do I know that’s what it is you ask? Simple, I watched what it did to the car. Or maybe I should say it tried to do something to the car. I can clearly see the car beginning to disintegrate… But then it starts putting itself back together. Dylan – did you spike the suds? No – oh you are seeing it too. I guess that means I’m not crazy. Yup, the car is putting itself back together. Guess I was right earlier, it was fixing itself.
Now, not to be outdone, the driver gets involved too. How you ask? Simple, grab a rifle and stand up through the sun roof and start firing. Now before you say “ok” you need to know something. THIS IS NOT A RIGGER!!!!!!!!!! I can see him tell his dog to take the wheel. Yes, seriously, I’m not kidding. And based on the fact that he instructed on how to turn by stating biscuit for right and Pupperoni for left I don’t think the dog is a shifter. The scarier thing is that it doesn’t seem to bother the other two operatives and they all just kept firing.
This goes on for some time. That dog is actually a pretty good driver and yes I know it can’t hit the pedals, but the driver already wedged a sword onto the pedal so it’s all good. Before today that wouldn’t have been ok, but I’m good with it now. After All,if the crazy bastards standing in the bed of a speeding truck firing automatic weapons don’t mind then why should I? Well, you can add that to the sentences that I never thought I would say. Hey, let the dog drive! Time for animal rights – they naturally follow shifter rights anyway.
In any event, the dog driving actually works out. They all open fire, but it turns out they don’t seem like they were prepared for the car to put itself together either! That’s when we get a hint at who is in the vehicle. They all take aim and the following is heard: “3, 2, Jeff, 1, Steve” followed by them firing. They timed it so the disintegrator hit first, opening the windshield, and then the other shots went through and took out the targets. Now, I don’t know who Jeff and Steve are, but I intend to find out. Cause outside of Fluffy and Peaches I know none of the operatives. Time to start looking at the ADF roster seeing as it was their vehicle.
Unfortunately the video cuts here. I don’t know where they went or have any other tidbits, just a very upset stomach and the fear of demons, ghosts, vampires, sith, and many more. I may not know where he is, but I can tell you that Silver Sword was right and this is horrifying. If it’s the same people you can look into his contributions, but they are old. I remembered hearing about them from my older brother as a kid or else I would have never found them. Seems like outside of the wiki this shit has been locked down tighter than your first girlfriend on prom night if you catch my drift. In my opinion, that’s just more proof.
Anyway, I’m not crazy so don’t send the authorities. Just be afraid, hide your children, and pick up anything that you think might be a weakness for one of these people. Wooden sticks, garlic, Ysalimar, or anything cause if these things are linked we are all in a lot of trouble. I did a little reading and this is clearly the work of the Technocracy. After all, Agent White has been Director Palpatine’s apprentice for basically ever and they run that agency with an iron fist. Not sure why they would use the Patriots to go after the ADF (aren’t they also Harbingers?) but at this point I’m just getting confused. Too much going on. This doesn’t even make sense, unless Colonial is one of the Technocracy too… Oh god I’m out.
