French Invasion; Death

The state of TIAH

in 1891, General Anthony Franklin begins his long journey back east to face his coming court-martial. In the aftermath of the massacre in western Missouri, Kansas City falls to the Kansans, and Missouri's Governor Silas Trent faces some similar rumblings which threaten to topple him if he continues supplying troops to the federals. He embarks on a statewide trip to apologize and shore up support for at least a defensive force on the Kansas border. He asks Lt. Colonel Theodore Monteith to move his base of operations out of Missouri, and Colonel Monteith sends a telegram to Major Mark Wainwright in Nebraska, telling him that the Kansas siege is about to be commanded from that state.

in 1999, Sir Lance du Lac spearheads the invasion of the northern French shores at the head of a combined force of British, Australian, North American and South African troops. The Central European Imperial resistance is minimal for some reason, and du Lac easily takes and fortifies the coast. The formerly French knight sends word to his old labor allies in the country to rise up and join with him to liberate France from the CEE. A hastily assembled meeting of the Illuminati's upper echelons in Switzerland is concerned, but Emperor Pierre assures them, “This is not unexpected, and we have contingencies in place to handle this. Worry not. France will be ours again, as will the United Kingdom, and then - the world.”

In 1989, the author Jon Varley prepared for the movie release of Millennium. Based loosely around a book created from the airline crash experience at Oakland, California, Varley was worried about the quality of the movie. Kris Kristoferson had been caste as Investigator in Charge of a National Transportation Safety Board Go-Team, Bill Smith; Cheryl Ladd as Louise Baltimore, Chief of Snatch Operations. Both were a decade older than the principal characters, and gave the movie a frumpy TV dinner feeling. He need not have worried, during the premier, the real Louise Baltimore arrived back in 1983, snatched the twonky mission report, preventing both the book Millennium and the movie ever being produced.

In 2000, astronauts sent to explore the "Stone" discovered a hollowed-out, man-made central axis - the "Way". Inside were seven chambers containing abandoned cities from the distant future. The so-called "Thistledown" civilization was built by survivors of the "Death" who had quit the Earth. Political leaders soon realised that the secrets inside the "Stone" made the "Death" inevitable, unless a remarkable woman could somehow save the world.

Tony Benn
Tony Benn
In 1972, prominent trade unionists and socialist politicians were arrested throughout Britain in the night of terror. The former Labour cabinet and members of the Trades Union Congress entered police custody. Absent was 2nd Viscount Stansgate Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn. Until the enactment of the Peerage Act 1963 Benn ..
.. had been unable to sit as a Member of Parliament (MP) and also hold his ancestral title. Shortly after 6 p.m. on July 31, 1963 the enactment was completed and at 6.22pm Benn was able to stand as an MP again. A committed socialist, a pilot in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War and landed gentry he was untouchable. But herein lied the problem for the military government, Benn was a very determined individual who would almost single-handedly reverse the actions of the previous five years and return Britain to civilian democracy on socialist terms. There was absolutely no stopping 'Wedgy' as he was popularly known. You cannot keep a good man down.

In 1983, on this day Hugh Trevor-Roper published the final of three shocking articles in Die Zeitung (The Times) newspaper. Here was the bombshell. Around 1938 Hitler's doctor Doctor Felix Kersten had become self-aware of his Jewish ancestry. He had begun to introduce increasing quantities of powered silver into the Fuehrer's .. Bormann
.. diet, effectively poisoning him. To conceal this, the silver did not seriously take effect until 1941. It was at this point that the Fuehrer's arm began to shake uncontrollably, and the quality of his decisions deteriorated rapidly. If it was not for Doctor Felix Kersten, Hitler would still be in the Chancery this very day! In simple terms, the Fuehrer's lycanthropy had saved the world from Nazi enslavement.

George Washington
George Washingt..
In 1789, on this day from the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York City, George Washington took the oath of office to become the first American Governor General of the United States. Just about everyone in the thirteen colonies were satisfied with a peaceful end to the troubles, as King George III paid tribute ..
.. at Federal Hall. The notable absence was the turncoat Colonel Benedict Arnold. He was cooling his heels in Yorktown, considering his very limited options.

In 1993, the World Wide Web was born at CERN. Finally, after 501 years of development, Western Civilization had a counter-weapon to strike back at the Mesh, that irresistible group consciousness between First Nations linking the Turtle Island (America) to the Dreamtime (48,000 year old Aboriginal civilization).
