Prologue: About This Book
In 2071, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the war between China and the United States, the United Nations sought to publish a definitive account of the war.
The United Nations Publication Selection Committee commissioned a book to celebrate the resolution of the war. The vote authorizing the search for an author was 19-0.
Esteemed China expert and former White House Chief of Staff Dr. J. Alton Beauchamp was selected to Chair the United Nations Publication Author Selection Committee. This committee was tasked to select an author.
The Committee established a total of 37 criteria for the selection of an author, which emphasized inclusion, diversity, transparency, openness and honesty.
They spent 3 years and $18 million during the selection process. In the concluding phase, the Committee awarded the project to its own Chairperson, J. Alton Beauchamp. Beauchamp was the unanimous selection with a vote of 23-0.
Dr. Beauchamp grew up in Beijing. He was born in 2022, just months after the conclusion of the war between China and the United States. In 2056, he orchestrated and led the successful reunification of the two Koreas. He subsequently served as the US Ambassador to the unified Korea and then to the Democratic Republic of China.
President James Carter, the great-grandson of President Jimmy Carter, selected Beauchamp to serve as his Chief of Staff. Serving for both full terms, he became the longest-serving White House Chief of Staff in American history.
The United Nations Committee on Spending subsequently authorized itself to pay $4.5 million to Dr. Beauchamp for writing the definitive history commemorating the 50th anniversary of the US versus China War of 2020-2021. The Committee voted 13-0 to proceed.
Dr. Beauchamp decided the best way to present the great story of the US-China War of 2020-2021, commonly called War 19, was to select news media articles from the said period. When taken as a whole, as a mosaic, they tell the entire story. The selection of the articles was his and his alone.
He selected the following articles. He only wrote the Epilogue, some 1000 words. For this effort, said to take 6 hours, he was paid $4.5 million. The U.N. declared the work, “a bargain but still a masterpiece.”
A September Surprise: 8 Arrested, Barr Announces Indictments
GNN (Global News Network)
September 30, 2020 – Wednesday
The political world has been expecting an October Surprise, but the events of today will go down in history as the Great September Surprise.
In a move designed to shock the world, eight Obama Administration officials were arrested today and charged with a combined total of 57 counts. If convicted, they face a combined 455 years in prison.
Attorney General William Barr announced on Wednesday evening the indictments of former intelligence officials that formed an alleged conspiracy to conduct an aggressive investigation of the Trump campaign in 2016.
The indictments come just weeks away from the 2020 presidential election in November.
Barr accused the federal law enforcement and intelligence officials of gross misconduct while conducting their Trump-Russian investigations.
“We have sufficient and conclusive evidence to believe that key security and intelligence officials of the US government overstepped the boundaries of their professional responsibilities for political, partisan, and ideological purposes,” the Attorney General told reporters in D.C.
“If proven, that would be a case of very, very serious misconduct. It would undermine the rule of law and the sanctity of America’s democratic institutions,” Barr added.
The indictments are based on Durham’s final report: in May 2019, Barr himself tapped the US Attorney for the District of Connecticut to examine issues surrounding the origins of the FBI’s Trump – Russia investigation back in 2016.
Based on Durham’s findings, Barr said a group of individuals aligned to, or sympathetic to, a specific political party had conspired to use the FBI’s authority to gain favoritism and outperform the opposing presidential candidate.
“It truly pains me to see evidence that some top FBI officials seem to have been the masterminds of the aggressive investigation, which was aimed at Trump’s 2016 campaign, and which kept targeting the President even after the elections,” the Attorney General stated.
He also revealed that the Department of Justice (DOJ) had launched a second investigation, this time personally against former FBI Director James Comey, who held the job from 2013 until May 2017, when he was dismissed by Trump.
Barr has charged Comey for leaking confidential details of a Russian document that the FBI acquired in 2017 to the Times and Washington Post. “Leaking details of investigations to the media is against the law,” the Attorney General emphasized.
Those charged include:
John Brennan, the head of the CIA under Obama, he now works for NBC. He is charged with 4 counts including treason and lying under oath.
James Clapper, who was the head of National Intelligence under Obama, was caught lying on camera about using the US intelligence gathering apparatus to spy on Americans. He is charged with 9 counts including treason and lying under oath.
Michael Hayden, another former CIA director under Obama, was charged with 2 counts, one of treason and one of lying under oath.
Susan Rice was Obama’s National Security Advisor from 2013 to 2017 and is involved in the alleged unmasking and spying case against then-candidate Trump. Until very recently, she was also a potential Vice President pick for Joe Biden. She was charged with 8 counts including treason and lying under oath.
James Comey, former Director of the FBI, was charged with 8 counts including treason and lying under oath. Other former FBI agents Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were also arrested.
“All of these were acts to sabotage President Trump’s presidency, or to have such an effect on the presidency,” Barr insisted.
Trump gave the Attorney General full authority over these investigations against the FBI’s illegal acts.
Democrats have argued that Barr is getting involved in politics by going too far to protect the president.
Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were quick to denounce the arrests. “Despite the 5,358 pages of evidence that Attorney General Barr released after the arrests, this is clearly a political hatch-it job,” Pelosi declared.
Coronavirus Vaccine Working

October 1, 2020 – Thursday
The Coronavirus Vaccine appears to be effective. AstraZeneca is producing 2 billion doses of the life-saving drug. 2.3 million doses have already been administered and the initial results are very promising. Democrat leaders are demanding their voters receive the vaccine first.
Scientists worldwide have been working tirelessly in the past few months to stop the deadly virus that has wreaked havoc around the globe. And there finally seems to be light at the end of the tunnel.
The data released after the first series of human trials brings hope to the world as it seems to be working.
Other vaccines are being tested, too. The University of Oxford’s vaccine is just one of the four candidate vaccines currently being tested. The vaccine candidate, led by Sarah Gilbert, may start human trials as early as November.
Since the trials were focused on safety and dosing, it is still early to tell whether the developed vaccine will prevent one from the disease or infection. Only large scale trials will bring a sound conclusion.
However, reports suggest that the candidate vaccine is safe and offers a hint that it can summon immune responses similar to herd immunity.
Researchers now say that it is safe to start extensive testing where volunteers will receive vaccines while rates of the COVID-19 infections would be compared between groups.
However, scientists warn against exaggerating the results and advise against using the data indirectly comparing the candidate vaccines.
In the end, the comparisons will be crucial in identifying how the candidate vaccines work or why they fail. The collected data will prioritize the most efficient vaccines at initial stages and develop new ones that have high efficiency.
“It is too early to rely on the data to conclude. It is still preliminary, and we cannot start comparing the candidate vaccines at this stage,” explained Raffi Ahmed, an immunologist from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
All the four vaccine developers said that their vaccines produced some sought-after immune response, similar to the Coronavirus herd immunity or the immune response elicited by those who have recovered from the infection.
Some trail participants are also said to have experienced a few side effects, which are normal when conducting trials. Side effects listed include permanent facial ticks and severe anal leakage.
The world is relying on the vaccine’s efficiency to end the global pandemic that is threatening to send the world into the worst global recession ever experienced.
New Documents Back Tara Reade’s Sexual Harassment Complaint against Biden’s Office
DAP (Daily Associated Post)
By Sarah Nightingale
October 5, 2020 – Monday
SAN LUIS OBISPO (CA) – New evidence has come to light in an alleged 1993 incident involving sexual harassment by Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden.
Tara Reade, then an aide in his Senate Office on Capitol Hill, has claimed Mr. Biden touched her inappropriately on more than one occasion.
In a shocking turn of events, the long-missing Senate Harassment Complaint Form has come forward.
The Complaint was allegedly filed by Ms. Reade in 1993, but until now, no evidence existed to substantiate her claim.
Additionally, the Complaint names two other staffers that were witnesses to the events and had given sworn testimony that seemingly confirms her claims.
Even more shocking, the report indicates that Senator Biden was interviewed by the FBI at the time of the complaint, and that the FBI found a reason to continue the investigation.
However, they did not. It is not known why the FBI did not continue the investigation.
In March 2020, Reade, 56, who worked in Biden’s Senate Office as a staff assistant from December 1992 until August 1993, accused the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination of sexual harassment and other more serious charges.
It is the only legal document containing evidence to support Reade’s allegations of having been a victim of sexual harassment.
The 4-page report confirms many details previously claimed by Ms. Reade.
“His hands went underneath my clothing and he was touching me in my private areas and without my consent,” Reade was quoted in April 2020 with respect to her allegations of sexual harassment by Joe Biden.
Prior to that, in March, she had told Current Affairs that Biden had pushed her against a wall, kissed her, put his hand under her skirt, and penetrated her with his fingers.
Theodore Dronen, Read’s ex-husband, was quoted in their divorce settlement record as saying that she had mentioned about a work-related problem involving sexual harassment in the Senate Office of Joe Bidden.
Dronen, who still resides in San Luis Obispo County, CA, testified that he and Reade met in the spring of 1993 while both were working for separate members of Congress in Washington, D.C.
“[Tara] eventually struck a deal with the chief of staff of the Senator’s office and left her position… It was obvious that this event had a very traumatic effect on (Reade), and that she is still sensitive and effected (sic) by it today,” Dronen wrote at the time.
When asked for a comment on Reade’s accusations of Biden at the time, her ex-husband commented laconically he was “not interested in reliving that chapter of my life” as the two had separated “under difficult circumstances.” At the time, Reade had even filed for a restraining order against him.
“I can vouch that Tara did indeed suffer something highly traumatic during her tenure at Biden’s Senate Office,” Dronen told AP as he decided to talk in first-ever media appearance.
“Going back to that part of my life is really difficult for me but I thought I’d come forward seeing how Tara’s claims have been handled all over the media landscape… She has been through so much. And I think she did the right thing by deciding to speak out after so many years,” Dronen elaborated.
Reade’s ex-husband, however, was unable to confirm in any way Joe Biden’s personal involvement in her alleged sexual assault, saying she never mentioned to him explicitly that, the then Senator, was the one to have assaulted her.
“No, I don’t recall any mention from her to that end… She mentioned an incident but perhaps she kept silent about the name precisely because it might have been someone of higher status, or whom she found intimidating… but those are just my guesses after many years,” Dronen added.
“What I can confirm is that she did suffer something traumatic while working on Capitol Hill, and that left a lasting mark on her,” Reade’s former husband concluded.
Presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been rejecting flatly Tara Reade’s sexual assault claims and has been asking that they be properly investigated.
While several former staff members of Joe Biden’s Senate Office from the period have been cited over the past months as not know about the alleged incident, a couple of former co-workers, five friends and several family members have corroborated that Reade had told them of having been the victim of sexual harassment.
The release of the documents from the Senate investigation adds a new twist to the claims.
A statement by Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign issued the day after the release called the documents completely false.
The statement cited Ted Kaufman, who was Biden’s chief of staff at the time, as saying that he had no recollection of an investigation or FBI interview – despite the claims that Reade had informed him of having been the object of sexual harassment.
“I have consistently said what the truth here is — that she never came to me. I do not remember her, and had she come to me in any of these circumstances, I would remember her. But I do not, because she did not. I am not even sure she existed. I challenge you to prove she is not an alien,” Kaufman said.
