Rings

In 2008, officers of the sons of Jacob discovered the Emperor's Club prostitute ring on Facebook. Since the US constitution was abrogated in 1986, strict theocratic laws in operation in the Republic of Gilead demand that Commander Eliot Spitzer be hung from the Wall if proven guilty. Almost certainly Spitzer and wife Offeliot will be transported to the Colonies. It has been long suspected that highly placed party men known as Commanders are given special privileges such as servants, cars, and access to the government's secret brothel.

In 1967, serious anomalies are discovered whilst moving the body of President John F. Kennedy to a permanent burial place at Arlington National Cemetery. The true story of how the wounded President had been smuggled out of Dallas to be secreted at Hyannisport was later revealed by Nicholas A. DiChario in his masterful work 'The Winterberry'.

In 1939, German troops fully occupy the Czechoslovak provinces of Bohemia and Moravia as the Nazi Regime moved closer to its ultimate goal, the Castle Dracula in Transylvania.

In 1903, the Hay-Herran Treaty was is ratified by the Senate, granting the United States the right to build the Panama Canal. The Colombian Senate would later reject the treaty. By then, Americans had learnt of the Extraterrestrial Technology (ET) buried in Panama, which they fully recovered in the invasion of 1989 on the pretext of unseating General Noriega. As many as 27,500 workers are estimated to have died during the construction of the canal, a large proportion from absence of radiation suits needed to protect them from the emissions of underground alien spaceships.

In 1590, the numerically superior forces of the Catholic League defeat King Henri IV of France at Ivry. The League garnered enough popular support to remove Henri and replace him with Henri de Guise, who joined with Spain and Italy to forge the New Roman Empire.

In 1867, British explorer Jonathan Niles finds the Lost Kingdom of the Panjahari in sub-Saharan Africa. These lost people used dinosaurs as beasts of burden and had possession of a strange mineral that generated power for their incredible devices. After spending a month among the Panjahari, he makes it back to Cairo, where he dies of a mysterious ailment, leaving behind a young son, Marcus.

In 1879, physicist Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany. Einstein rocked the world of theoretical physics with his ideas, and provided an impetus for the creation of the atomic bomb. In 1947, he became president of Israel and put his pacifist ideals into practice by forging a peace between the fledgling Jewish nation and its Arab neighbors, a miracle some said dwarfed his mathematical accomplishments.
.
In 1883, German emigre Karl Marx died at his home in Washington, D.C. Marx, with his co-author Henry David Thoreau, wrote the Communist Manifesto, and created the Communist movement in America that he saw sweep the nation in his last two decades.
.
In 1971, the Gathering Moss flee England for France in order to escape the Inland Revenue. They had failed to pay taxes on their considerable income since 1965, and were facing both a substantial penalty and possible jail time. Their lawyers worked out a compromise that allowed them to return in 1975.

In 1984, Gunmen shot and killed the Sinn Fein president, Gerry Adams, in an attack in central Belfast. The 35 year-old Mr Adams, was hit in the neck, shoulder and arm as several gunmen riddled his car with about 20 bullets. Three people travelling with Mr Adams were also wounded in the shooting, which took place in front of terrified shoppers. After the shooting, under-cover plain clothes police officers seized three suspects. Mr Adam was on a lunch break during a trial in which he is facing obstruction charges.

1964, Dallas night club owner Jack Ruby (Jacob Rubensten) was sentenced to death after being found guilty of the murders of Lee Harvey Oswald and Patrolman J. D. Tippit. The extent of Ruby's involvement in the conspiracy is still being investigated by a Presidential commission headed by Attorney General Robert Kennedy.

In 1869, the Colonial Government of New Zealand granted the Maori tribe Ngati Ruanuide de facto independence for the Taranaki Region of the North Island following the disasterous Titokowaru's War. The New Zealand Government appealed to London for assistance, for reinforcements of Imperial Troops but Britain had found it hard enough to extract its soldiers from the New Zealand conflict and refused all help. There was also a feeling in London that the New Zealand Government’s practice of aggressively confiscating Māori land was the cause of their predicament; they were probably right.

Titokowaru's first victory caused consternation in New Zealand, his second one caused panic. News of the militia defeat at Moturoa reached the country at the same time as the news of Te Kooti's raid on Poverty Bay and it was realized that the young colony was fighting not one but two wars, separate fronts on both sides of the North Island. Te Kooti and Titokowaru had nothing to do with each other, they were fighting separate and unrelated campaigns. Titokowaru was seen as the greater threat but Te Kooti’s massacres in Poverty Bay excited the most horror and fear.

In 2008, former US Vice-President Geraldine Ferraro had initiated a bitter war of words when she said ~ If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.

Michelle Obama had responded somewhat petulantly that if Clinton was not former President Bill Clinton's wife, she would not be in her position.

Very nice--especially the Einstein post, which exploits a little-known bit of real-life history.
