5G causes stand-off in Marksville (MT/Open/Diplomatic mainly

Marksville was a rural town in the Western portion of the state of Wisconsin known for its vibrant farming community, its farmers were renowned for their milk, poultry, beef, corn, other crops and live stock. However it was now the target of an insidious eminent domain program devoted to the propagation of a new vibrant emergent technology.

It was a normal day in the life of local farmer Jim Robertson had been farmer all his life inheriting his farm from his dad who got it from his grandad and would one day belong to his kid, he was milking his cows preparing fresh batches of milk, carrying the buckets over to a fridge he quickly noticed something a black SUV had pulled up to his propety. He quickly walked over to see who the SUV belonged to and quickly noticed it was a Government tag, the man revealed a badge for some alphabet soup agency and quickly informed the man that a large part of his land was being taken for eminent domain. "Mr. Robertson, we are going to take some of your land for our new 5G network." an arguement ensued and Robertson realized he could do nothing about the enroachment on his land.

A month later the 5G tower had been built and his cows were starting to exhibit tumors, caused by cancer. Jim's son quickly did research on his computer finding out that 5G causes cancer. The farmer greatly angered began a defiant protest and set up a flag pole close to the Tower, waving a gadesen flag that boldy proclaimed 'Don't Tread On Me!' this was in violation of Government property with the state ordering Jim to remove the flag or be prosecuted for vandalism. Jim refused and began monkey wrenching the 5G tower, placing dynamite on it and destroying it, in other areas of the town where 5G was being developed protestors arrived in mass to support farmer Jims right to his land and to protest against 5G which was they beleived was giving local animals cancer and had the potential to give humans cancer. They began monkey wrenching the 5G towers with explosives in a pro-human rebellion.

A week went by and the situation quickly attracted a big tent following that went beyond the political spectrum and certain former Professor from the University of Texas Thomas J. Kerensky quickly took to action in support of the farmer. Thomas J. Kerensky was controviersal figure he was what many described as a neo-luddite, a social conservative and an agrarian. He was profoundly opposed to much of emergent technoligies which he claimed would give the controlling elite power to enslave the public. He beleived that the only way to avoid such enslavement was revolution against the technological system but armed cadres of Neo-Luddites. He formed a new organization 'The Sons of Freedom' to quickly support Farmer Jim and this is where our story begins!

Farmer Jim surrounded by supporters, local friends, family, and comrades from all over was about to declare what would then be known as "The Farmer's Decleration" a socially conservative, populist, agrarian and neo-luddite message unto the people.

Chancellor Dietrich was sitting in his office in Berlin reviewing files as his secrety, who was an attractive young woman, rang him in on the phone saying "Mein Chancellor the Volks Ministrie for Foreign Affairs has urgent news from America." The Chancellor replied "Danke, I will call them." The Chancellor quickly called the ministry and turned on his TV to see Aktuelle Kamera's daily news and became aware of the American Popular Revolt. A communique was released by the ministry to hopefully motivate the rebels or at least let the Americans know the DASR is watching.

The DASR conragulates the self-determonationist revolt. The demands of the working class people of the American state of Wisconsin need to be heard. The American order is collapsing daily and will continue to collapse unless power is given to the peasents, the workers, the intellectuals and its soldiers rather than multinational banks corportations, and corrupt officers.

The American influence across the world through means of imperialism is directly causing this madness to the point of even its own people demanding change and action. Corpratist and elitist entitites in American government posts must be relieved and investigations must be done into corruption.

We are prepared to offer support should the American government do this and our support lies with the American people.

Luther Monroe was an educated man and maybe the most well-read man in the entire Labrador Valley. He owned large tracts of land which he sold or rented to other farmers and he used the profits from those land sales and a large family inheritance to finance the creation of an armed militia, the Whitetail Cougars, which fought to drive foreigners out of the Labrador Valley. Luther Monroe was no luddite, he understood that modern technologies could be very useful. His large plantation estate was wired for 5G service, which was rare in that part of the country. But when he saw the news about what was happening in Marksville, he understood that men like Farmer Jim were allies. They might have some silly views, like thinking that a cell phone tower or a plastic water bottle could give you cancer, but their hearts were in the right place. They were fighting for their homes and families and they opposed the unnatural liberal order which Muskegonia had successfully blocked. He reached for his cell phone and dialed the number of a newspaper in the city of Lakewood who could write and send a message to Farmer Jim and his people.

THE WHITETAIL COUGARS STAND WITH THE PEOPLE OF MARKSVILLE

The Whitetail Cougars and their leader, Luther Monroe, stand in solidarity with the people of Marksville in their fight for freedom. Our two peoples, Muskegonia and Marksville, share many qualities in common such as an appreciation for the benefits of the rural life over the corrupting influence of the city and a willingness to take up arms and defend hearth and home against any threats. Luther Monroe and the Whitetail Cougars applaud Farmer Jim for making his brave stand for time-honored traditional values and personal liberty.

The Shogun's Office, The Imperial Palace, Kyoto, The Empire of Japan

Morning arose over the land of the rising sun as the weather slowly changed from the unbearable heat of summer to the cool mild weather of fall, the windows of the Palace and their shutters were opened upon request of the Shogun to enjoy the cool morning the weather of Japan had to offer. The Shogun, Yuuhi Koubuin stood behind her desk, looking out on the palace grounds, a smile on her face while she watched the sun rise. Just then a knock at the door would come to break the morning quiet, if only for a moment.

"Enter." Shogun Koubuin said, breaking from the sight, her assistant, Vassal Retainer of the Imperial Royal Guard, Mana Tsukuyomi bowed her head as she entered the room, carrying a silver tray with a silvery stainless steel coffee pot, a coffee cup and whatever else the Shogun might desire with her coffee. "Good morning, your majesty." Mana said as she set the tray down. "Yes, good morning to you as well, Vassal Retainer." Yuuhi said, taking her seat at her desk. Mana poured the Shogun a cup of coffee and Yuuhi took the cup, sipping it. Hot. Just, perfect. "Great as always, Vassal Retainer, thank you." Yuuhi said with a smile. "Of course, your majesty." Mana smiled and bowed her head. Yuuhi then decided to check on current events with her tablet, keeping abreast of recent events was best of course.

Sadly the news seemed to be quite... Mundane. Save for a fire in a Novosibirsk lab, a Russian volcano turning the skies around it purple, finally, an arrest in the matter of a golden toilet being stolen, then another thing caught her eye, off in the land of Japan's oldest foe, some farmer had blown up a 5G tower. Yuuhi had to double take upon reading that and she shook her head. "By Amaterasu...." Yuuhi said in mild disappointment. Since being appointed Shogun by right of birth as the previous had stepped down, Yuuhi had seen great fantastic displays of nonsense, sheer stupidity, and desperation. This was more of the first than the latter two. She couldn't help but wonder how a farmer had somehow gotten ahold of Dynamite. Then she realised this was an American farmer being talked about so that answered that question rather quickly. Though this was quite a strange sight to see in the news, she would keep an eye on it, purely out of a likely side need of entertainment, afterall. There couldn't be any possible way this could effect the Japanese Shogunate, nor the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere so more than anything this would just provide some sort of... Amusement on the side.

The White House
City of Washington, District of Columbia
United States of America


The Socialist Equality Party had risen from obscurity to become the dominant political party in the United States in the blink of an eye. They had co-opted the Democratic Party, delivering victories on the local and state level using a motivated and highly organized grassroots machine, then slowly purging the party of centrists and liberals who lacked sufficient commitment to leftist thought. They had succeeded in winning the 2016 election by overwhelming the Republicans with a massive voter turnout operation. The political concerns of rural voters like Jim Robertson meant nothing when the SEP could bring the weight of the cities to bear. Once installed in the Oval Office with secure majorities in the House and Senate, they had used that urban voting bloc to force through two schemes: packing the Supreme Court to drown out the voices of conservative judges, and abolishing the Electoral College to further disempower the Republican Party’s base. President Jerry White could sit in the White House and feel secure that a second term was guaranteed, and maybe even a third or fourth term if he wanted it.

As part of their agenda for publicly-owned infrastructure expansion, the federal government had used the eminent domain laws to force farmers to give up land for 5G towers across the nation. Most people had no objections to this program, since it made high-speed data available across almost all of the country. This was combined with government programs that had forced companies like Apple to offer phones at lower prices – which simply encouraged them to make the phones as cheaply as possible. The average person in Milwaukee or Madison didn’t care if some farmers got sick if it meant that they could access government-provided cellular data to stream movies or upload pictures to Instagram. The farmers who complained were dismissed as reactionary and backwards idiots stuck in the past and unwilling to adapt to the future.

The news out of the Marksville area was concerning. The government could not allow Jim Robertson and Thomas Kerensky to become focal points for a rural uprising against the government. The domestic surveillance programs were pervasive, gathering terabytes of data on every thought the Americans people put onto social media of any kind, but there wasn’t yet enough support for the kinds of political repression that the SEP knew would be necessary.

“Mister President, we have the footage of Jim Robertson’s speech,” the National Security Advisor said. An aide opened a laptop and pressed play on a recording.

The Sons of Freedom wrote:"I tell you these damn faggots in the FBI, ATF, whatever the Hell they work for got nothing on me! Today we the people of Marksville declare a state of seccession. I got a list of 11 demands for you damn communists running the US Government, now listen here you assholes!

“This hick cannot be allowed to block the march of progress,” President White announced. “Get me the Governor of Wisconsin. Niles, I want you to get out there and respond to this redneck.” Vice-President Niles Niemuth was from Wisconsin, and it was hoped he could rally the rest of the state to reject the words of “Farmer Jim.”

The Vice-President called an emergency press conference on the White House lawn. All the major news networks were present – CNN and MSNBC had fallen in line, while FOX News had been dismantled through aggressive and biased enforcement of various telecommunications laws. The news media realized their best interests were to toe the SEP line and they dutifully acted as propagandists for the administration in exchange for continued access and privileges.

The Vice-President walked to the podium and began speaking.

“We’ve all seen the disturbing statement released by Jim Robertson. First of all, I am ashamed that citizens of my own home state of Wisconsin, a state with a long and proud progressive tradition, would use such foul and offensive language in public. I also am saddened to hear a fellow Wisconsinite profess belief in such bogus science. There is no scientific evidence that 5G networks cause cancer. Mister Robertson is repeating debunked talking points of talk radio hosts who make money by stoking fear of the unknown among the ignorant. That being said, Mister Robertson appears to align in his views with the President on many issues, such as concern for the environment and a desire to avoid dangerous concentrations of wealth. However, his declaration of secession is completely illegitimate and unlawful. I call on Mister Robertson to stand down and avoid any actions which might endanger his life or the lives of any others. We are open to hearing Mister Robertson’s concerns at a peaceful forum, but this government will not tolerate attacks on federal property.”

The Governor of Wisconsin knew the phone call from Washington was coming the minute that fool farmer got on the television. She had been sitting at her desk waiting for the phone to ring, with her personal secretary saying that the President was on line one. She pressed the button to connect to the call.

“Hello Mister President, I think I know what you’re calling about.”

“Governor, I want you to mobilize the National Guard and contain these militants. If they will not listen to reason then we have to be ready to put them down.”

The Governor felt her face go pale as the President broached the idea of having American soldiers fight and kill Americans. The fear was not just for the terrible precedent that it would set. She was not sure that the outcome would be as assured as the President thought it was.

“Sir, I can mobilize the 32nd Infantry Combat Brigade, which is the majority of our Army National Guard Force. But sir, I must warn you that this may not be a sure thing. The Brigade has seen multiple tours of duty in the Middle East. The Brigade commander says that many of the men are tired, their morale is low, there are gaps where men were killed or wounded. And sir…” The Governor paused, nervous about the other problem. “Sir, the Guard might not obey orders to suppress the insurgents. Most of the officers are reliable, but the rank-and-file might not feel like shooting at other Americans, especially not fellow Wisconsinites.”

“If these country vandals see that we’re strong, they will back down. It won’t come to any sort of actual fighting,” the President replied. “We just need a show of force and then they’ll go back to ranting and raving on talk radio. They think we’re weak like the Democrats and unwilling to stand up to bullying, but this administration is different.”

“Alright sir, I’ll give the order,” the Governor said, and then the phone call was over. The Governor began making the necessary calls to mobilize the Wisconsin Army National Guard and deploy it to western Wisconsin, to create a cordon around the self-proclaimed secessionist area.

RE: Official Stance of the Pan-Asiatic States Government on U.S Militarization in the State of Wisconsin


The PEOPLE'S FEDERATION OF PAN-ASIATIC STATES, acting under the moderation of its ruling Secretary-General, Guanyu "Abra" Abramovich Jr., assembled the Executive Council (EC) this morning, 11:30 A.M, September 18th, in the Common Year 2019, at the capital of the Federation, Neo-Manila. The congregation has reached an official consensus in regards to recent developments concerning the civil conflict within the United States of America between its government and the newly-emergent "Sons of Freedom" movement.

The Pan-Asiatic States government has been and is closely monitoring the situation in the United States. The Sixth Administration of the Pan-Asiatic States calls upon all parties in the United States to implement the utmost restraint, prevent any further aggression against civilian life, and ensure the respect for human rights. We voice caution, particularly, in light of armed activity between the two sides.

All Asians who are still in the Wisconsin state proper, a region recently militarized by the United States' National Guard, particularly those who are in the state for non-essential reasons, are encouraged by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to consider leaving by commercial means at the earliest possible time. Asians who are planning to visit Wisconsin are advised to defer their travel until the situation is more stable.

We commend the anti-government demonstration following the aftermath of the persecution of Mr. Jim Robertson, in fulfillment to the Pan-Asiatic States' commitment to uphold the universal entitlement of man to people's rule, free expression, and autonomy of thought.

In the words of Karl Marx, under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary. The People's Federation is highly critical of the United States' undertaking to disenfranchise its workers and lower-class, and we have always looked-down upon the corporatocratic hegemony which America has pursued over the world's markets. We believe that the perpetrators of this hegemony should be brought to justice in accordance to the true will and sentiments of the American people.

Nevertheless, this stance may be subject to change in the weeks to come, as the Asian peoples, alongside the world, become eager to witness the issues of the United States unravel through this development of dissent. In a pursuit for peace and understanding, the Federation requests the United States to permit the initiation of a Pan-Asiatic fact-finding mission to be conducted by an ambassadorial envoy headed by Special Political Rapporteur (Ms.) Liang Su of the Asian Diplomat's Cadre (ADC).

In the meantime, the current situation of the uprising remains monitored by the Executive Council. A proposal for directives may be drafted when sufficient information has been gathered, and it could be reviewed further by the State-Presidents of the Federation in due time.

Forefathers guide us all.

COW CANCER CAUSES REBELLION

Article part of The Islander's biweekly 'Only the Outsiders!' series.

IN MARKSVILLE, the installation of a new kind of very complicated technology has allegedly caused cows to develop cancerous tumours, and this may have started a rebellion. Only the outsiders!

Located in a place called Wisconsin in the United States of America, a new kind of technology known as 'Five Gee' was recently installed near the settlement. Five Gee is, according to The Islander's research, a new kind of technology that allows the delivery of information between portable, hand-held telephones without the use of cables - instead the information is sent by via invisible rays from large transmitter towers. This is broadly similar to how wireless radios work, a technology with which some Shalottes may be familiar, but it is apparently much faster, more powerful, and more flexible.

It can, for instance, send photographs and even moving pictures from one portable device to another faster than the blink of an eye, through a global network known as the Internet.

Five Gee replaces a similar, earlier technology known as Four Gee, which has been widely adopted by outsiders all over the world for many years now, and which in turn replaced an earlier, widely-adopted technology called Three Gee.

Some outsiders are concerned that the invisible rays used by Five Gee might be dangerous to people, however, and similar concerns surrounded each of the earlier incarnations of the technology too. While outside scientists have yet to say for sure if there are any negative long-term health effects or not, many people aren't willing to wait to find out, and protests tend to accompany the installation of Five Gee transmitters wherever they may happen to go up.

Certainly Jim Robertson, better known as 'Farmer Jim', believes that Five Gee is dangerous. He has claimed that less than one month after the installation of a Five Gee transmitter tower near his farm, his cattle developed cancerous tumours, and he has specifically blamed this on the transmitter.

To make matters worse for him, the government used a system known as 'eminent domain' to forcibly acquire land from his own farm, upon which they then built the tower.

Somehow, cow cancer has now led to explosions, as Farmer Jim and his supporters took to using explosives called 'dynamite' to destroy the offending transmitter towers.

Farmer Jim is convinced that the government of his country, the United States, is conspiring to 'enslave' its people, and that these Five Gee towers are but one method in their arsenal, though The Islander has been unable to discover a means by which the invisible rays of Five Gee might be used for mind control. He also blames [homosexuals] and communists.

Since his acts of civil disobedience, Farmer Jim has further escalated the situation, and has now issued his government with a profanity-laden, 11-point list of demands. Included in this list is a requirement for income tax to be abolished, the cancellation of high-interest debts issued to people who can't afford to repay them, and a requirement that the people in his area be allowed to retain firearms.

Point three, curiously, isn't a demand, but simply a statement that reads "we are tired of all these damn leftists teaching evolution, fags and trannies and other bullshit [sic] in our schools". It is unclear what demand, if any, he is actually making.

As is usually the way for outsiders, people on both sides are now getting ready to kill each other over the issue, and foreigners with no stakes in the situation are variously declaring either support or condemnation for one side or the other. The United States government has mobilised an armed response to the uprising, though it does not appear that any shots have been fired as of publication.

Some are calling the rebellion a 'succession movement', meaning that, if their points are not addressed and the US government can't stop them by force, Farmer Jim's complaints may even result in an independent, breakaway country being formed.

We asked the Gaeltyn for their thoughts on the issue. Riagán of Damnoni, Mon'gaeltyn, expressed concern for the risk of bloodshed over what appears to be a trivial issue, but said that neither the Domnaeni nor the Gaeltyn have any official response.

"We don't fathom why any responsible government would knowingly force upon its people a new kind of technology that its citizenry does not fully understand, and appears to fear to such an extent that they would be willing to resort to violence over it," Riagán told The Islander this morning. "When Alauna's telephone grid was installed three decades ago, it was done so gradually and wholly optionally, with each recipient being fully educated on its functionality, mechanism, benefits, and risks, so that ignorance and fear would not hamper the project or our own people. This would seem to be the only sensible way forward for any government.

"Nor can we fathom how something like a [Five Gee tower] could possibly deteriorate to the point that explosives might be used or [the National Guard] would need to be involved," he continued. "All representatives of the Gaeltyn and I pray that neither [Farmer Jim] and his supporters nor the [National Guard] will come to blows over this, and that this situation will be resolved peacefully and without the loss of human life.

"Neither Her Faithful Grace nor her government has any official position on this situation beyond those prayers, however."

Prior to publication, The Islander polled residents in Alauna to hear their thoughts about this story. While most Alaunans didn't know what Five Gee was, many expressed confusion as to how a sophisticated broadcasting system could result in civil disturbances.

"They're going to kill each other to save lives?" one resident said. "That seems stupid."

"Maybe they really are putting something in the water over there," another commented.

Another Alaunan expressed surprise, and asked "how can they want more freedom, when they already appear to have access to [dynamite] and can use it to blow up government property?" She added, "sounds like they've got too much [freedom] already."

Some Alaunans, though not generally sympathetic to Farmer Jim or his other complaints specifically, at least showed some broader support to his original cause, however.

"Can you imagine if our Beloved Mother [Domnaeni Alsa II] started just taking land off of us so that she could install big, ugly towers full of useless gadgets everywhere - gadgets that might even be dangerous just to stand next to?" said one Alaunan. "I don't know what he's going on about with all the rest of it, and this Farmer Jim guy seems like a pretty [Expletive Deleted for International Editions] to me, but I'd probably kick up a [Expletive Deleted for International Editions] fuss if someone put up a possible death tower on my own land, too!"

Finally, one Alaunan simply told us, "outsiders love their gizmos, but they don't know why, and they do them no good in the end.

"Don't matter if it causes cows cancer or not. Look at what it's doing to them, even after they've blown the thing up," she added. "I hope Shalotte remains pure to its roots, 'cause those outsiders are killing themselves, spiritually and literally."

The Shogun's Office, The Imperial Palace, Kyoto, Mainland Japan, The Empire of Japan

Shogun Koubuin was quite... Concerned to say the least with the whole apparent societal and political shake up of the United States, with a primarily far left government somehow gaining power as detailed in the annual briefing on states that were previous or current foes of the Japanese Empire. Somehow, in some twist of fate, Japan had now found itself of one mind with an ideological enemy, the Pan-Asiatic states which preached communist ideals, however the whole notion of the US becoming what it had, was disrupting the world balance of power in the eyes of the Shogunate. The Shogun was presented with a copy of the demands presented by "Farmer Jim" and found a good portion of them quite reasonable. To be able to live as one desires for the most part is a right unhindered by the Shogunate, atleast in the case of firearms ownership(Most recently legalised in the Japanese Empire and other states of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.), third was... Well... She disagreed with it to say the least. The fourth she also disagreed with, the fifth was fine, the sixth was of course understandable, seventh as well, eighth... Well that would need some research, 9th was understandable, atleast in the frame of looking at the situation from the perspective of a citizen of the US, the 10th and 11th were also understandable but she disagreed with the latter.

Sitting in her office, Shogun Koubuin looked over the ongoing developments when an idea came to mind. Instead of the usual path, Japan, had quite a large amount of territory gained from it's victory in the Asia-Pacific War, more than enough territory for the Empire, she could surely spare some for some disillusioned farmers and all should they decide to leave the US, if not then surely the Imperial Army could spare arms to send to the farmers, eitherway it would be more so of a win for Japan. A way to capitalise on the failure of a once great state that posed the greatest threat to the Japanese Empire, reduced to a failure to it's own people, first in the 20th century and now in the 21st century. As the situation was, the Shogun didn't doubt the American government would keep such an offer from their people, therefore, special attention had to be drawn to it, a visit perhaps, to these farmers? Shogun Koubuin knew just the perfect person to send. The best diplomat the Japanese had to offer, Baron/General Ryuunosuke Saionji, the son of Regent Shouhei Saionji. Of course a message would have to be sent to explain the Japanese stance on the matter, a message which would take several hours to prepare..

Five hours passed and the message was finished then signed off on by the Shogun herself. Just in time too. Baron/General Ryuunosuke Saionji knocked on the doors to the office of the Shogun and he was allowed in by Vassal Retainer Mana Tsukuyomi.
"Your majesty." Baron Saionji said as he bowed his head. The Baron was an average size man in all ways, dressed in the standard type 3 IJA uniform with his medals and achievements proudly displayed in accordance with requirements as set by the universal Imperial Army Dress Code for officers. "Welcome, Baron Saionji." Shogun Koubuin slid a sealed manila envelope across her desk and Baron Saionji picked it up, turning it over, it was addressed to the president of the United States of America, in person.

"Your majesty..?" Baron Saionji asked with an eyebrow raised. "You are going to America, Baron. The land of our enemies. Now, more so ideologically than anything else. You will try to arrange a meeting with their backwards leadership and deliver this envelope. Then you shall go to where this little rebellion is going on and you'll make our offer to this... Farmer Jim and his friends, meanwhile, work will be done in the former Russian Far East to give those who may accept our offer, an easier time. If they refuse then we shall move on to plan 2." The Shogun said with a smile. "I understand, your majesty." Baron Saionji snapped to attention and saluted the Shogun before he backed out of the room then turned, leaving the office. Vassal Retainer Tsukuyomi closed the double doors and Baron Saionji left for the capital of the United States, Washington D.C.

AN OFFICIAL MESSAGE FROM FARMER JIM TO THE PUBLIC


Farmer Jim stood before the podium

"I would like to thank our foreign supporters, the Japanese, the Germans, the Pan-Asiatic States, our Brother and fellow freedom fighter Luther Monroe, the people of Yuyencia, the concerned people of Shaolette and others. Our struggle has been heard across the world and many other freedom loving people support our fight for freedom as well. I'm gonna let my good buddy Professor Kerensky take over from here!" he walked off and then Thomas J. Kerensky took to the podium

Thomas J. Kerensky


"Greetings, my name is Professor Thomas Kerensky this is an offical message to the United States Government. if political means fail us then we will begin revolution. If our uprising has reached Wisoncin where the majority is likely against us, it will surely start to mentifest in states where the majority value liberty and traditional values. This revolution is opposed to the ultimate threat to liberty and that threat is technological enslavement, this is a neo-luddite revolution combatting the heights of technological enslavement! We carry on the legacy of the mountainmen and the frontiersmenship that founded this country! Today is a call for all other freedom fighters opposed to enslavement and tyranny to rise up across the country!"

Allen Bochart

The standoff caught the attention of Allen Bochart from West Virginia and was the former sheriff of his county. He formed the American Constitutional Army after his law enforcement career saying he is fed up with the bullshit this country is descending to. He is also a veteran having served in Grenada and Panama and spent some time in Korea as well. Allen kept a video channel on a video sharing site where he'd give his point of view on things, review his favorite guns and other related things and now he would be sharing his view on the Wisconsin standoff on his channel.

"I know you guys have been dying to hear what I have to say about this, God damn I'll just say it, that guy in Wisconsin is on to something. You know we started the Constitutional Army back in 2011 thinking they'd come take our guns away. But this new president, we didn't vote for his ass, we didn't vote for Obama, I'll admit I voted for Bush only because his competition was an even bigger wack job, but there's no way in hell I'm voting for a socialist. You know its like I tell people read your bible and keep your guns before you have an asshole Fed asking to talk to you. I served this country, I can tell you that there was no reason to invade Iraq, maybe helping out it Bosnia was okay, but there has to be a line, I took part in Panama, I didn't agree with it but I was the canon fodder in the war.

What I am saying here is that enough is enough, America ain't Iraq, it ain't Afghanistan, it ain't Syria or wherever the hell else we have our troops. This is God damn Wisconsin for God's sake, that farmer, Jim whatever his name is, has a right to be pissed off, because the... forgive me for saying this y'all know I don't like this word, but that fucking federal government is a taking a shit all over him. It is his constitutional right.

We will be damned if we become a nanny state, where the Washington egg heads become mommy and daddy, you know it'll be a cold day in hell before you buy back my AR-15, before you fine me for hurting your feelings, or tell me to check my privilege, you can check your own damn privilege telling me what to do jerk off.

I'll let y'all in on a little secret my AR-15 ain't just for hunting, it makes a hell of a lot more fun, I don't need it for that you're right... it's because I want it I have it, and its to protect myself from Communist twig boys coming over and trying to take it from me because I supposedly don't need it, this is a government for the people by the people, and its the bill of effing rights not the bill of needs, its my right, and Hell yes the Constitutional Army stands with our friends in Wisconsin, and that idiot in the Oval office knows damn well we are active here in West Virginia, New Mexico, Idaho, Louisiana and Texas, and hopefully soon in Missouri and Arkansas.

We will be going to Wisconsin, Marksville we are coming."

Ronald Reagen International Airport, Washington D.C., United States of America

Above in the skies, a Gulfstream IV with the IJAAS roundel flew above the airport, then finally after a few minutes, the plane was given permission to land, the jet came in on a smooth landing, reaching the terminal, the Jet turned around and came to a stop, from the terminal, a few men in black suits, lead by one woman also in a suit came out, awaiting whomstever may be inside, the passenger hatch to the jet came down and out stepped a man dressed in a Japanese Type 3 Uniform with a brown two prong officer's belt, knee high brown jackboots, a visor cap with a red band around the base and a gold star adorning the front of the red band, he wore medals and golden cords leading from the top of his shoulder to the third and button up on his uniform, along with him he carried a brown leather briefcase.

Stepping down from the stairs, his rank became clear upon viewing of his collar tabs, golden background, two thin red stripes along the length of the tabs, and three golden stars. He was a General, the group in the suits bowed their heads to the officer and he saluted them. "Welcome to the united states, Baron Saionji." The woman said, raising her head. "I'm glad to see being gone from the homeland hasn't caused you to forget yourself, Ambassador." Baron Saionji replied. "Yes, sir. We've arranged for your transportation to the US State Department, then after you deliver your letter from the Shogun to the President, we've arranged for your transportation to Marksville."

"For being devoted to diplomacy, ambassador, you plan like an officer of the Navy. Normally I would begrudge you that, however we've no time for idiotic past nonsense." Baron Saionji said as he and the ambassador walked together to a black limo waiting off to the side with two state flags of the Japanese Empire adorning the front. "Thank you, sir." The ambassador said while she opened the door for Baron Saionji, allowing him to get in first, she followed suit and the men with her waited at the plane while the limo drove off, escorted by two cars also marked as Japanese, the small convoy of three vehicles made their way through the streets, along all the landmarks, then finally to the US State Department where it came to a halt, the driver of the limo got out and went around to the side walk, opening the door and Baron Saionji stepped out, adjusting his cap and uniform, along with him came the ambassador but she was stopped by one move of his arm in her way.

"Ambassador, I can handle this myself. Please wait here." Baron Saionji said as he lowered his arm and proceeded into the building, garnering, some attention from those watching him, after all it wasn't every day where a man from a foreign country came in, dressed in full dress attire. Baron Saionji awaited in a line of people at the administration desk and finally the line thinned, getting to him, the secretary's eyes got as wide as cue balls on a billiards table. "I am here with a message from her Majesty, Shogun Yuuhi Koubuin, for your president." Baron Saionji said in heavily Japanese accented English.

Chancellor Dietrich had already addressed the developing tensions in the American state of Wisconsin and now the Volkskammer has come together to listen Chancellor Dietrich's comments and would come to unanimously support the Chancellor in his approval for the Agrarian revolt. Chancellor Dietrich walked in as the Volkskammer's members stood up applauding while the national anthem played. Chancellor Dietrich took his post at the podium and waited for the DASR anthem to finish as the thunderous applauds died down. He paused before speaking looking down then back up and then spoke.

"We have been watching the American emergency unfold. Something highly irregular indeed for the so called first world and the supposed most powerful nation on Earth which is struggling with the might of a popular revolt. When will the American elitist regime learn that their system is bound to failure and the working class will always claim what is theirs? This is why our Workers Republic prevails as it is a republic of the workers. What the Americans call democracy is what we call mob rule. The American government is run like a gang of mafia bosses. Their Democracy is merely a choice between Dictators with two very similar political parties. Choosing between American parties is like choosing between Hitler and Mussolini, or between a King and a Tsar.

I offer my personal advice to the Wisconsin revolt, do not give in and do not compromise on your rights or your freedom. The German Socialist Workers Republic stands fully with all popular, agrarians, workers, intellectuals, revolutionaries and grassroots movements. I encourage you to follow in the footsteps of George Washington and to keep yourselves free, comrade Marx had said under no circumstance should arms or ammunition be surrendered any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated by force if necessary.

I beg the American corporatist-elitist-quasi-socialist-zionist regime to make amends with the people and work with them and rebuild your country on a path for equality between classes. Can you not see the common men have had enough with corporate theft, the corporatist banker influence in the regime has degraded to the point of the government stealing the land of its nation's farmers to uphold and support corporate capitalist entities. While the workers continue to pay and are held back with the wage slavery."

After Chancellor Dietrich spoke the Volkskammer's members stood up simultaneously applauding raising their fists and chanting popular slogans in support of the Chancellor.

"Chancellor Dietrich has commented on the American dictatorship's planned genocide in Wisconsin to violently slaughter protestors demanding their property is protected. The American regime deployed special forces from the notorious Seal Team 6 that took part in several mass murders and terrorism campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan in order to counter the revolt. We also have information from sources saying that American regime troops are preparing to use deadly force on the self-defense movement. We will have more as the story continues to develop."

Prime Minister's Office, Government House,Victoria-2-Chome, Shin Minato, Kingdom of Bengal

As Prime Minister Suzuha Itai entered her office to do the day's duties as Prime Minister, a stack of paper, namely reports and recently passed legislation and letters from foreign dignitaries and disgrunted and happy sectors of society, laid on her desk. "Another day of hard work" she thought in her mind as she sat down on the leather chair on which many former Prime Ministers, a dictator and many honored Governors of the old British Kawa sat on. She began to go through the stack, until a report got her attention. It was about the recent happenings in America, in a small rural town of Wisconsin. After reading through it, she called her aides and Foreign Affairs advisers in to discuss about the issue.

"So you're telling me that the Germans, those damn Japs and the Pan-Asians have already got their fingers into the issue happening in the US, while we haven't done a thing?" said Prime Minister Itai, for 2 days have passed since the issue caught the attention of other countries. "The foreign office should surely release a statement. And also, there is a good number of Kawanese(Bengali) tourists visiting rural America this time of the year, so surely there must be some in Wisconsin. Before things get worse, and the American security forces move in to subdue the farmhands like they did during the Occupy Wall Street Protests in 2001, we must get our citizens out of there.". The up and coming Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Daniel Tanaka spoke up, to the agony of his boss, "Might we as well add in a mild threat to the Americans? We can at least threaten to take diplomatic actions against them if the security forces move in against the peaceful protesters". "That would be a great idea. However, bear in mind that we must be on the winning side in the end. This meeting is done. Lets get back to work everyone" said Itai as she got up

Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kingdom of Bengal(Kawa)
Official Press Release
[hr]
The Kingdom of Bengal officialy urges the protesters to maintain a peaceful manner of protesting, and also urges the United States Government to make room for open dialogue and negotiations with the protesters. It also reaffirms the importance of giving more authority to the local governments in countries as big as the United States. All Kawanese citizens currently residing in, or vising Wisconsin are requested by the government to leave Wisconsin at the earliest time possible.

Regarding the demands of the protesters, the government agrees with the 1st demand, which is giving importance to basic universal human rights and freedoms. Regarding the 2nd demand, we sadly cannot sympathize with the protesters, however, we believe that an agreement regarding that issue can be reached between the gun-owning lobbies and the US Government. We have no comment regarding the 3rd and 4th demands. Regarding the 5th and 6th demand, we also believe in peaceful negotiation regarding such issue between the government and the people. Regarding the 7th, 8th and 9th demands, we can fully sympathise with the protesters since we have similar legislation here in Kawa. We have no opinion regarding the 10th demand, since its popularity varies on a nationwide basic. About the 10th demand, we believe that technology shouldn't be pushed on people, rather it must be accepted by people if they themselves feel it benefits them.

We would urge the United States Federal and the Wisconsin State Governments to practise utmost restraint regarding the issue, and only use security services to uphold Rule of Law, rather than repression of opinion. We will send observers to Wisconsin to ensure report to us all the actions taken by the US government regarding the protests, on the ground. We hope to get full cooperation from the American authorities.

President Jerry White and his cabinet watched the statements from Professor Kerensky and the “American Constitutional Army.” The statements had been picked up by the media, which even now couldn’t stay away from a good story like this. Most of the talking heads toed the party line and dismissed the militants as ignorant and dangerous fools. The prevailing theory was that they would continue to bluster until confronted with actual consequences, and then they would back down and make a deal that kept them from ending up dead or in prison.

“Sir, the Wisconsin National Guard is beginning to move out,” the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff announced. “There was some difficulty – apparently some vehicles had not been properly maintained and broke down or wouldn’t start – but the Brigade is beginning to cordon off the area around Marksville.”

“Thank you, General,” President White replied. “Make sure the commander remembers that he is not to fire unless fired upon. For now.”

“Sir, we also need to start working on our international response,” the Secretary of State spoke up. “We’re drawing a lot of international attention over this. More than usual.”

“Well it’s to be expected,” White replied. “Reaction was racking up victories around the world while we were trying to solve things by voting for Democrats. Who’s complaining?”

“Well, we have a statement from the Pan-Asiatic States…”

Pan-Asiatic States wrote:In a pursuit for peace and understanding, the Federation requests the United States to permit the initiation of a Pan-Asiatic fact-finding mission to be conducted by an ambassadorial envoy headed by Special Political Rapporteur (Ms.) Liang Su of the Asian Diplomat's Cadre (ADC).


“A fact-finding commission?” President White scoffed. “Absolutely not. I’m not about to let some Maoists,” he spat the word with the kind of derision that came naturally to a veteran of inter-leftist struggles in the United States, “wander around Wisconsin. Find a way to say no that doesn’t sound quite so rude but reminds them that we’re not some banana republic that they can push around.”

OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION
DIPLOMATIC ENCRYPTION
TO THE PAN-ASIATIC MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS

President White does not see how this situation requires the presence of a fact-finding mission. Jim Robertson’s illegal activity is a wholly internal matter which will be settled according to the laws of the United States.


“And next up, the Japanese envoy is here,” the Secretary of State continued. “Baron Ryuunosuke Saionji. Their ambassador claims that he has a message from the Shogun which is to be presented to you personally.”

"Highly irregular, no?" President White asked. The Secretary of State nodded. "Any idea what it might be about? Some trouble in the Pacific?"

"Our analysts have seen no indications of any sort of moves that might indicate aggression," the Secretary of Defense answered.

"I suppose we'll find out," White said with a sigh. "Alright. Clear the room and then bring him in."

Once the cabinet had left, Secret Service ushered the Baron into the Oval Office. President White was waiting, along with a staffer who would transcribe the conversation of their meeting and a translator, should there be some element of the conversation where the Baron's command English proved insufficient.

"Baron, it is a pleasure to meet you," President White said. "I understand you have an important message for me?"

The pair of Humvees, still painted in their desert-pattern camouflage, rolled up to the exit off the interstate close to Marksville in the pre-dawn hours of the morning. There were almost no other cars on the highway, and none were trying to get off the interstate at that particular exit. The National Guardsmen were there to make sure that wouldn’t be possible. They unrolled a bundle of concertina wire across the exit, bookended by the two Humvees and their roof-mounted fifty-caliber machine guns. The NG troops carried their weapons slung, with magazines inserted by no rounds chambered. Their orders were to refrain from deadly force until the last possible moment without compromising their safety or the integrity of the blockade.

All across western Wisconsin, the National Guard and state police troopers were closing off access to the region where Farmer Jim and his compatriots had declared their “state of secession.” No one would be permitted to enter without official authorization, and no one would be permitted to leave without demonstrating beyond any doubt that they were totally unaffiliated with the militants. For now, the neo-luddites were left to their own devices while the federal government prepared a negotiating team to travel to Marksville and work out an end to this standoff.

"Of course." The Baron said with a smile and the standard bow, the first time a technical officer of the Imperial Japanese Army was to be in the white house, likely not the last. "The Shogunate is concerned, namely of the path you Americans are taking. You seem to be disregarding your ancestors, once honourable virtues for which your country was founded upon. Now you have become something like the Chinese were. You're on the brink of your own period of warlords and you don't seem to realise it." Baron Saionji said as he sat, moving his briefcase to the side of the chair he sat at. "You are disregarding quite a number of past traditions and ideals, one of which is what prevented us from landing troops in your country during the Asia-Pacific War. As said by Admiral Yamamoto. "For every blade of grass, there will be a gun behind it.", you disregard that, instead seem to wish to take your people's firearms and are causing schisms in your own society.... While we are natural enemies. The Shogunate is mainly concerned with stability of the world. The same stability your predecessors in the middle east and africa ended, causing the rats to jump ship in their territories and seek safety where they do not belong. Even in the Co-prosperity sphere we are dealing with their mess."

Baron Saionji said, coldly. "However, as with most things, Japan has a solution to your problem so you don't end up turning your own country into the most recent equivalent of Syria or the former Yugoslav territories." Baron Saionji said while he opened up his briefcase and took out a manilla envelope, sliding it across a table. "We can handle what you cannot. That is why we remain even after the attempted "restoration" of Emperor Meiji. That is why we have all the territory we gained in the Asia-Pacific war. Because, we are what your ancestors forced us to become in 1842. We took the path opposite to your democracy and "freedom". Which has backfired, allowing your ascension, to a once respected office of our most hated foe." Baron Saionji finished and stood up, he took off his visor cap and bowed his head once more before leaving with his briefcase and the manilla envelope still there on the table, as he left the room he put his visor cap back on and the door shut behind him.

日本太平洋帝国将軍の公式声明
Official Communique from the Shogun of the Empire of Japanese Pacific States

Image
To: The President of the United States of America, Jerry White.
From: The Shogun of The Empire of Japanese Pacific States, Head of State, Government, and Military, Her Imperial Majesty, Shogun Yuuhi Koubuin

It has come to the attention of myself, and the other leaders of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, that the American government as of late has fallen to a sad lot, you. As you call yourselves the "Socialist Equality Party"... You stand to dishonour the ideals of your ancestors with a failed ideal, incompatible with both your own country in principals, but also economically. It baffles me, personally to no end, to think that at one time in 1842, my people feared your and the other at the time, "western powers". You have allowed yourselves to rot from the inside out, your laziness and treason to the ideals upon which your nation was founded, and the treason to the men who still today despite being the founders of the most hated country in the view of the Japanese Empire, were honourable.

Your ancestors would spin in their graves to see the deeds you've carried out. While I cannot say I would not do the same, Japan, my country is different to yours. Since the inception of the Japanese Empire there has always been the Shogunate, from Shogun Kujou to myself. Democracy is and always has been incompatible with the tempered Japanese way of life, however it is even through our own traditions and our own view, we cannot allow you to toss yourselves into the abyss Russia, Germany, and indeed the whole of Eastern Europe was abandoned to after the second great war. Therefore, Baron Saionji shall travel to the territory held by this Farmer Jim and his compatriots, and they shall be offered their own land to do with as they see fit in the Japanese controlled, former Russian Far East.

The Socialist Democratic Republic of Argentina was not very aware of international conflicts, the country was emerging from a financial bankruptcy and was slowly recovering from neoliberal policies and the interference of Occidental powers in national politics, however, President Dutsher was aware of what was happening in Wisconsin since the events had attracted the presence of many countries of varying degrees of importance. President Dutsher faced a dilemma; "What to do in these situations?", Militarily threatening foreign countries was not an option since the state of the argentine armed forces was deplorable and an unnecessary provocation could generate an unnecessary diplomatic conflict, but Dutsher was determined to issue some kind of statement to position Argentina in a diplomatic "third side" to decompress the polarization of the conflict.

In addition, President Dutsher wanted to continue maintaining her image of "morally correct politician" by acting according to her ideals and demonstrating that it is possible to intervene in an international conflict without the need to resort to physical or verbal violence and without the need to directly influence a government. For obvious reasons, President Dutsher decided to postpone her official statement a couple of hours to prepare psychologically before addressing everyone, picked up her hair several times, reread all the reports that the argentine government had available about the Wisconsin conflict, she readed the public statements of other nations and even took time to read her private novels who passionate her. Thoughts crossed her mind, such as "Is it worth helping those who have made us suffer for so long?", "What should I say about Asians so as not to damage our relationships?", "Should I intervene or not?", the president hesitated a lot but never changed her mind, in that sense she had a lot of determination, once she takes a decision and considered that it was a correct decision, she complete it until the last consequences.

"Later I will have to address the popular masses of Argentina to clarify the reason why I will intervene in this conflict" she resolved, the argentine politicy historically has been very complicated in all aspects and to intervene in a US conflict in a "peaceful" way and demonstrating that the argentine government supports anything from the United States would be highly criticized but still, the president has a lot of confidence in herself due to the good economic and social results of her government's policies, now it was time to shed some of the national affairs to deal with international conflicts.

Official statement of the Presidency of the Nation



"Best regards to all the people who are honoring me by seeing me at this precise moment, I, the President Lodensy Dutsher, on behalf of all Argentines and on behalf of the Argentine government, I have taken the deliberate and difficult decision to clarify some points about the conflicts related to the riots of Wisconsin in the United States of America. Before starting with these clarifications, advice and recommendations, this message is not intended to offend, insult or degrade the prestige of any of the nations to which I will be addressing, nor will I mention them since I do not want to point directly to those who perpetrate attitudes that our government considers "unfair" or "unethical" in regard to common sense and the progress of humanity and peace.

In the first instance, the private property of each citizen must be respected if it has been obtained legitimately or if the constitution of the United States of America protects the owner of certain property from the usurpation of the US government. Both public and private property should be respected by both the government and all citizens of the country and in the case of committing damage to the private property of a US citizen, the least that the government of the United States of America can do is assign an proportional economic compensation to the damage caused to the property of the affected citizen.

In the second instance, internal disturbances and local conflicts in the United States of America are matters whose responsibility belongs to the United States of America, not to foreign countries. Throughout history many governments that have been considered authoritarian, evil or genocidal were overthrown and the consequences of those overthrows were (in most cases) worse, practically the remedy was worse than the disease. I am not cataloging the government of the United States of America as authoritarian, evil or genocidal but I am aware that several world leaders see the United States of America in this way and I want to remind you that intervening in the internal affairs of a foreign country will only bring diplomatic conflicts and will jeopardize the stability of peace.

In the third instance, armed combat is something that should be used as a last resort and I trust that the government of the United States of America will know how to solve this problem in the most constitutionally correct way and preventing bloodshed in its own people, the American sovereignty must be respected as the sovereignty of the countries that threaten it. All leaders must remember that a sovereign country has the right to govern its territory and lead its people to prosperity and peace, no country has the right to threaten the sovereignty of another country, this is a symbol of imperialism and the imperialism has no ideology. It can be capitalist, it can be communist, it can be of any ideology.

In the fourth instance, I propose to all nations that try to relate directly to this conflict that try to change their way of intervening or renounce their intervention, to threat the government of a country or try to influence it directly is not an acceptable solution and could generate a armed conflict over a relatively unimportant issue internationally.

In the fifth instance, the Socialist Democratic Republic of Argentina declares itself in favor that the US government offers a peaceful solution and economic compensation to those US citizens who have been affected by the riots in Wisconsin, we also declare ourselves in favor of this matter be resolved by the US government and we recognize that the government of the United States of America is the only authority competent and legitimate enough to resolve this conflict.

This statement is not intended to declare Argentina in favor or against a country, in favor or against an ideology, this statement is intended to make North Americans and leaders of foreign nations reflect on the procedure You must perform in this type of conflict. The world does not need nations with more power, nor does it need diplomatic conflicts, the world needs heroes. Thank you very much for giving me a part of your time, I say goodbye and good luck"

-Lodensy Dutsher, President of the Socialsit Democratic Republic of Argentina.

The standoff in the American state of Wisconsin is surprising to us here in the Federal Republic of Guyanah, we enjoy close relations with the United States and its people. Our nations for years have supported and stood by one another, however with this being said we find the direction the nation has delved into is a dark and tyrannical one in contradiction of its strong and proud history. There have been clear and undeniable violations of the civil liberties, and there are legitimate concerns that must be addressed, however we urge dialogue between the conflicting parties.

Our nation's links to the American people are integral to our relations from the Confederate exiles to the investors and settlers who sought our land as a second United States in the North America's continental neighbor in the south, we do find it reasonable to have concern. Our policy towards the American people has always been one of support and brotherly love, we will continue to allow Americans to live and migrate to our country, and we caution our citizens visiting the United States of America not to get involved in the crisis and to stay away from potentially dangerous areas.

Finally we invite both sides to our nation if needed, as a neutral ground for dialogue.
