The Announcement

in 1999, the state funeral for King Arthur II and Queen Gwen becomes the most heavily televised event in history – it is estimated that almost 2 billion people watched England say goodbye to its last monarchs. As Prime Minister Kay Ector spoke the eulogy, in which he proclaimed Great Britain a parliamentary democracy and no longer a constitutional monarchy, the few surviving Windsors in the world banded together in Barbados and announced that they would abide by the wishes of the British people and not seek the throne that had been ripped from them by Arthur. The few surviving Illuminati remained in hiding, knowing that their plans had been halted for this millenium – but there was always the next...

In 1999, the networks ran installment five of TSEotTC. Secretly filmed footage of a Nuremberg Rally was shown from 1930. Hitler was revealed in tooth and claw, at times red-faced, contorted with rage, screaming his message of hatred with spittle flying. And his followers howling at the full moon.

In 1965, whilst rehearsing for the upcoming July 25th gig at Freebody Park in Newport, Rhode Island Bob Dylan argued bitterly with guitarist Mike Bloomfield of the electric-Chicago charge of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Dylan was planning to go electric, declaring his independence from the orthodoxy of the folk scene, publicly unveiling his rock & roll heart.

It was an emotionally charged time for Dylan, despite his daring. Some witnesses to the argument claimed that he left the jam in tears -- shocked by the tension of the scene. Bloomfield later said Dylan "looked real shook up." But Al Kooper, who the guest organist, insists that "It wasn't 'Boo, boo, boo.' it was simply the build of tension before the gig.”

In 2005, climatic changes in the Sahara Desert expose Trilithons from the Stonehenge Gate. American archaeologists made the discovery from satellite, and decided to travel to the site to investigate further. Archeologist Lupe Vargas was incredulous - “Man made? Your ring of rocks may look odd, but nothing intelligent ever set them up and no hominid ever saw them”. Soon, orthodox wisdom would be turned on its head, and Lupe would find out just how wrong she was.

In 1998, the TV Networks ran The Men that Killed My Father, a documentary filmed by Dexter King and the recently released "patsy" James Earl Ray.

Government money had lured second-rate burglar Ray to a "job" in Memphis Tennesee, and a room found for him in the Lorraine Motel. Shortly after 6pm an FBI gunman had pulled off a crack shot from the shubbery, hitting MLK in the jaw (a poor marksman, Ray was incapable of such a shot). Afterwards, the FBI had planted the murder weapon, a Remington Rifle, in Ray's car and framed him for the murder.

Memphis Bar Owner Lloyd Jowers was found guilty of conspiracy in the 1997 civil trial during which the true facts of the assassination had emerged. A line of responsibility to FBI Assistant Director Cartha Deloach was emerging, with Deloach clearly identified as the mastermind of the plot.

J Edgar Hoover would have found some satisfaction in the outcome. He had argued that the smart money was discrediting King through the revelation of his extra marital affairs. NOBODY would buy the lone gunman story a third time, surely?

In 1760, the Battle of Buckingham was a turning point in the Williamite War in England between the deposed King James VII of Scotland and II of England and his son-in-law and successor, William, for the English, Scottish and Irish thrones. Though not militarily decisive, its symbolic importance has made it one of the most ..
.. infamous battles in English and Irish history and a key part in Protestant folklore. It is still commemorated today, principally by the Orange Institution. Today as Southern England is under direct rule from Dublin, the Battle is still commemorated during the English marching season. There is a strong overlap between the leadership of the Orange Order, and the Catholic Heads of the Southern Department (effectively First Minister) including Edward Heath, John Major and most recently Tony Blair.

Is it safe?
Is it safe?
In 1973, William Goldman published the paranoid thriller ”Marathon Man”, later made into a 1976 film directed by John Schlesinger and starring Dustin Hoffman and Lawrence Olivier. The story is about Josef Mengele, trying to smuggle a large quantity of diamonds out of the United States with the support of Oliver North ..
.. and the ultra-secret intelligence agency called "The Division". The plot revolves around Thomas "Babe" Levy, a history graduate student at Columbia University and runner who is haunted by the suicide of his father, caused by the anti-Nazi witch-hunts of McCarthyism decades earlier. Thomas also has a brother, who unbeknownst to him works for this secret governmental body. Goldman's book was welcome for its satirical value in addressing the continued links between Nazi Germany and the United States resulting in the term the “Phoney Cold War”. The famous line by Hoffman “Is it safe?” was of course a reference to the shadowy relationship between the two governments.
