Originally an idea of @Georgepatton that featured in a few cyberpunk stories by him, that has been "cross-canonized" as it were and adapted to this setting.


Crystal Lite is an American brand of methamphetamine-fortified cigarettes, owned and manufactured by Morley Tobacco. Lubbock, Texas, is the location of the largest Crystal Lite manufacturing plant. It is the global-best selling methamphetamine cigarette brand since its inception, and has a market share of 15% in the United States.

Methamphetamine was legalized at the federal level in 2056, during the lame-duck period of the Hayakawa administration. It remained illegal at the state-level in many states, but several followed the federal government's example, including California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Texas. Morley Tobacco was the first tobacco company to take advantage of federal and state-level legalization, and released a methamphetamine-fortified cigarette brand in 2057. The niche market was modestly profitable for the early years of its existence.

However, the brand became significantly more popular in the aftermath of the WWIII. Many returning veterans of the trenches in China and the USSR suffered from amphetamine dependencies and addictions, due to the heavy use of combat amphetamine cocktails utilized by the infantry and other combat arms units. Crystal Lite marketed itself heavily to this demographic, and sales climbed steadily through 2076, 2077, 2078, and 2079.

The Battle of Fashoda was a military engagement which took place between British and French colonial forces in the upper reaches of the Nile in September 1898. The battle was fought for control over the fort and settlement of Fashoda, a vital position which would grant its occupier unrivaled control over the southern portions of the Nile. Jean-Baptiste Marchand, a French colonial explorer, was dispatched by the French with instructions to occupy Fashoda and lay claim to southern Sudan, capitalizing on the fact that the British were busy fighting the Mahdist rebellion; he departed from Brazzaville in the French Congo. Simultaneously, another party led by Christian de Bonchamps set out from French Somaliland. Despite facing hardships while crossing Abyssinia, Bonchamps was able to reach the Blue Nile and he rendezvoused with Marchand not far from Fashoda, arriving at the site in July.

Simultaneously, a large contingent of British and Egyptian soldiers commanded by Sir Herbert Kirchner, fresh from their victory in the Battle of Omdurman, sailed down the Nile to investigate the presence of the French. Marchand ordered the fortification of Fashoda, while he sent Bonchamps to establish communication with the arriving British. A veteran of the Stairs Expedition, which saw the annexation of Katanga into the Belgian Congo from British expansionism, Bonchamps was aggressive towards Sir Kirchner, and Bonchamps demanded his immediate withdrawal. Not wanting to provoke a war, Sir Kirchner made his encampment further north while he assessed the situation. The French were wary of Sir Kirchner's troops; on the night of 20 September, 80 Senegalese tirailleurs led by Bonchamps himself attacked the British camp, catching them by surprise. Sir Kirchner considered an evacuation; however, Lieutenant-Colonel Horace Smith-Dorrien rallied his soldiers forward and countered the French with unyielding strength. Facing renewed resolution, Bonchamps withdrew to Fashoda.

Aided by their five gunboats and numeric superiority, the highly-experienced army of British and Egyptian soldiers wreaked havoc on the French lines. The underarmed colonial soldiers under Marchand's command were impotent before Sir Kirchner's professional forces. By the afternoon of 24 September, the French abandoned Fashoda and withdrew east towards neutral Abyssinia. Smith-Dorrien proposed a counterattack to fully neutralize the French, but Sir Kirchner refused. He instead made way to Khartoum to await orders, unaware that the fire of war was already rampaging.

From Desire the Right

Levi Ayer Gardner (born Leslie Lynch King Jr.) was an American politician who is regarded as one of the most influential American politicians of the late 20th century. Born Leslie Lynch King Jr. to Dorothy Ayer Gardner and Leslie Lynch King Sr., his mother divorced his father a matter of weeks after his birth due to his father's alcoholism and violent, abusive behavior. While he wouldn't legally change his name until 1935, the young Gardner would go by Levi in honor of his maternal grandfather since early childhood.

After considering going into rugby while a student at the University of Illinois, Gardner would go on to attend Yale Law School and later enter politics, being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on the Farmer-Labor ticket in 1946. He would go on to hold many high-ranking positions within the congressional FLP during his time in the House, including two brief stints as Speaker. In 1968 he successfully ran for Governor of Illinois, and was reelected in 1972. He would be elected to the Senate in 1974.

Characterized as a moderate social democrat, Gardner would help balance the more moderate FLP congresspeople with the more populist wing led by President Jacobetti and the hardliners led by Ronald Reagan. During Jacobetti's 1979 impeachment, he would stick with the party line and vote against removing Jacobetti despite overwhelming evidence of corruption, tarnishing his image and reputation. He would attempt a primary challenge against Jacobetti when the latter tried to run for a third term in 1980 to no avail, and would lose his Senate seat in the subsequent election.

Following his defeat, Gardner would completely denounce Jacobetti. He would experience a minor political comeback in 1986, being elected as Governor of Illinois once again, but would step down after only one more term. After stepping down Gardner would retire to his home in Oak Park with his wife Josephine, where he would live until his death in 2006.

Brace Robert Belden (October 13, 1989 - October 9, 2055) was an American leftist, writer, internet personality, American political activist and accused domestic terrorist largely known for his pre-Civil Conflict commentary on electoral politics and progressivism. He is commonly known as one of the public faces of the Freedom from American Oppression, radical left militant organisation currently active in the American Civil Conflict as a revolutionary guerilla opposition against the Federal Government. Prior to his death, Belden briefly ranked as 16th on the FBI's Most Wanted list. Belden was also widely known as his former Twitter handle, PissPigGranddad, and is considered one of the more prominent postmodern political personalities and philosophers (such as Jordan Peterson, Slavoj Žižek, June Lapine, Natalie Wynn and Kyle Kulinski).

Belden was born to Jewish parents in San Francisco in 1989 and grew up in Corte Madera, California. His mother committed suicide when he was six years old, largley believed to be the catalyst for Belden's subsequent reputation as "a troubled teen", going between five different high schools, including an out-of-state boot camp from which he ran away before being arrested for public intoxication. Belden has identified as a Marxist since his teenage years and protested the Iraq War when he was thirteen. In 2005, when he was fifteen, he and his friends started a satirical right-wing, pro-war punk band called Warkrime (2005-2008). On a national scale, Belden first gained public notoriety when he enlisted in the People's Protection Units (YPG), a Kurdish militia, in the Syrian Civil War, leading to coverage by Rolling Stone and a despite with director Daniel Espinosa, who sought to adapt the article into a film staring Jake Gyllenhaal.

After returning to his native California, Belden became a noted leftist talking head, working with the Chapo Trap House podcast as well as heavily involving himself in both the California Branch of the Democratic Socialists of America as well as successfully unionising his workplace, successfully corralling workers of the Anchor Brewing Company of San Francisco into the International Longshore and Warehouse Union. His alleged radicalisation, insofar violent interference against the Ammon Bundy administration on the West Coast, came with his involvement with the Red Shovels, a self-styled 'domestic vigilante group'. Tho he was an active member of the group, sporting the customary tattoo above his right ankle, Belden actively distanced himself from them before the group and local affiliates were absorbed into what became FAO.

Following the Impeachment of President Lumumba, Belden fully committed himself to the militant leftist wing of the American Opposition. He was present at the Electoral Protests in Washington as well as several riots in his native California, in which he was photographed either hurling objects at Federal Officers or coordinating with FAO members. While not as active in offensive conflict as other members of the FAO, Belden was an essential media component for the organisation, acting as an established mouthpiece for leftist extremism in the Civil Conflict. During an interview with Pirate Radio Rev, he commented on the decision of the FAO leadership to align themselves with Opposition Government; "I see it as an alliance of necessity. The Untied States was an authoritarian state exploiting and abusing minority groups both before and after the civil war even started; Regardless of who wins, we're going to see fascism under capitalism or fascism under Bundy and his cronies. To truly bring an end to this bootlicking sentimentality we need to tear it all down and make something new from the debris. [...] a working-class revolution was always inevitable, so who really gives a fuck about the circumstances, y'know?"

Due to use of 2nd Generation Age Grafts, Belden was in good enough physical condition to take part in the Rape of California in 2041, during which he assisted with the evacuation of civilians as well as several raids on Federal Holding Camps across the coast. He was briefly captured by Federal Forces before being sprung by the Opposition Government and sequestered by the FAO to an outpost in the Muir Woods National Monument. Belden was subjected to enhanced interrogation, and it is suspected as the reason for his retreat from Social Media and public interviews for the last few years of his life, whilst he committed to being stationed along the NoCal divide as a sniper in spite of his advanced age.

During a tactical retreat towards an FAO outpost in Bakersfield , Belden was shot through the lower stomach whilst in a shootout with a Patriot militia. One of his last recorded remarks was "Please don't let me die in fucking pancaketown.", as he hoped to endure a much more symbolic last stand in the neighbouring town of Independence. However, during a period where the group stopped to camp for the night, he was given a large dose of Co-proxamol in an attempt to substitute for the unavailable anaesthetic. Belden, who had twice overdosed on Heroin in the early 2010's, suffered an adverse reaction to the opioid and passed in his sleep. His body was eventually transported to a United Nations clinic in Klamath Falls, where he was cremated. The ashes were briefly 'hidden' by ranking FAO operatives before he was given an impromptu burial in Van Patten Parkway in Burlington, Vermont, the former residential home of Senator and Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Four subsequent attempts have been made to either vandalise the burial site or to steal the ashes, all of which have resulted in unceremonious capturing and execution of the perpetrators by FAO operatives.

This is almost perfectly similar to a character idea I had in Forgotten No More... awesome!
 
Re-reading Max Brooks' World War Z, and there is a chapter where a French character compares a certain action by a French unit to Verdun, with the phrase 'on ne passe pas!' That got the gears turning, and got me thinking of a similar zombie outbreak on the eve of the first world war (beginning 1909-1913 or so) and this was the result (PS don't click on any of those links they're just to random shit):



BattleOfFuldaComplete.jpeg

The Battle of Fulda (29 October – 21 November 1917)[3][4][5][6], was the single largest battle to take place during the years of the Great Plague, a defensive action in which the League of Nations held the Fulda Pass in central Germany against a horde of more than eight million ghouls streaming westward, primarily composed of reanimated Germans, Italians, Russians, Turks, Poles, Balts, Hungarians, Austrians, Romanians, and South Slavs.

The battle was the first of the war in which the various members of the newly formed League of Nations operated under a semi-unified command structure. Following the destruction of the Russian and Austro-Hungarian armies in the Carpathian March, with hundreds of thousands of fallen soldiers swelling the ranks of the living dead, the provisional commissioners at the League's First International Congress in London, chaired by American President Roosevelt realized western Europe would be overrun by millions of ghouls within weeks if drastic action was not taken.[7] German Field Marshal Hindenburg was granted command of the hastily scraped together Provisional European Army composed of whatever League forces could be found, mustered, and rushed to the battlefield in time to meet the oncoming horde.[8]

Fulda was selected as a natural choke point that would allow the human armies to mitigate the vast numerical superiority of their undead opponent. The soldiers gathered at Fulda were primarily German and French, though significant contributions were made by Britain, the United States, Spain, and what remained of the Russian and Hapsburg armies, along with a myriad of smaller states. These forces were filled out by complements of civilian volunteer militiamen, including, famously, two artillery companies manned entirely by the students of a Parisian girls' finishing school. An effort was made to redirect the torrents of refugees fleeing west through the Fulda Pass, both in the interest of controlling and processing their entry into the western 'safe zone', and as a means of luring the advancing ghouls into the designated bottleneck.

In late October, the first elements of the Great Horde arrived in central Germany, and battle was joined.[9] Since the ghouls possessed no self-preservation instinct and rushed heedlessly into the teeth of human guns, artillery initially took a withering toll on the dead. However, as the days went on, the massive numbers of living dead and brittle supply lines of the League forces began to tell. By 8 November, munitions had been exhausted, and the troops engaged the ghouls with rifles. Within another week, ammunition had begun to run dry, and in the final days of the battle the dead were held by bayonet charges and hand to hand combat. On 21 November, the order in the ranks finally collapsed as the army was inundated and invested by the horde.[10]:932 The great majority of the human combatants were either devoured outright or killed and rose again to join the ranks of the dead. However, thanks to their nearly month-long holding action, more than seven million people were able to flee behind the Rhine defensive line, and much German industry was evacuated westward into France. All who fell at Fulda posthumously received the highest military decorations of their respective nations, as well as the newly created League of Nations Order of Mankind, as did as the 30,000 or so survivors. Though recent revisionist history has questioned the importance of Fulda in the overall course of the war, it remains consensus that had it not been for the action, which significantly reduced the size of the Great Horde, the eventual reclamation and cleansing of Europe and eventually of the Americas and Near East would have proven immeasurably more difficult, if not impossible.[11]

The battle has become a byword for doomed last stands and heroic sacrifice, and has been called 'the Modern Thermopylae'. Writer Ernest Hemingway, one of only thirty Americans to survive the battle, famously said that 'it was life against death. And life won.'[12] Fulda also gave to the famous phrase "On ne passe pas" or 'they shall not pass', uttered by an unidentified French captain, when asked by his commander if the battalion he led could hold its positions any longer, bereft of ammunition and artillery. Monuments to the Battle of Fulda can be found in most nations within Europe, and many outside of it, most notably the fifty-foot monument at Fulda itself, erected thirty years after the battle.[13]

A possible start-up timeline I may work on if I get relieved of some schoolwork because of COVID-19. This isn't the actual POD, that would be the Battle of Mainz, this wikibox comes slightly after.

I won't write too much lore on the matter here, though it is key to know that the final split after Theodosius' death was not a clean divorce. While the two halves of the former Roman Empire still saw each other has "one nation", that was only lip service. Theodosius' sons - Honorius and Arcadius were neither old enough to rule their respective halves of the Empire, so you ended up with strongmen regencies that both effectively saught to put their "prince" on the throne of the other half. For Arcadius you had Flavius Rufinus. Rufinus actively tried to block Western assistance in defeating the Visigoths. In the Western Empire, Stilicho was the man with the power. He was hard-pressed in reuniting the Roman Empire, by any means.

Sometime in late 406 AD, Stilicho demanded that the Eastern Empire "return" their half of Illyricum, even threaten war if the Eastern Empire refused. There's no clear source where this pompous demand came from, but it's theorized that Stilicho wanted to settle Alaric and his Visigoths there to help the Western Empire defeat the Alans, Vandals, and Suebi (who just broke through iotl after the Battle of Mainz.) Ttl looks into Stilicho not bluffing and actually sending Western Empire troops into the East. Stilicho was a very capable general, and Alaric had plenty of battle-harden troops, and with the Eastern Empire forced to maintain a garrison on the Sassanid border, I see this as a clear victory for the Western Empire.

What you end up with after the war are two semi-exhausted Empires, and loads of Germanic barbarians breathing down the Rhine and Danube.
 
tell me if i should make a thread for that or not:
Polish Colonial series pt.5: President Edward Rydz-Smigły
<< part 4
1584622554067.png

Edward Rydz-Śmigły
(11 March 1886 – 2 December 1956), also called Edward Śmigły-Rydz was a Polish politician, statesman, serving as Marshal of Poland and Commander-in-Chief of Polish Armed Forces, and later as 4th President of Poland.

Before Second European War, he was an exceptionally admired public figure in Poland and was regarded as a hero for his exemplary record as an army commander in the Polish Legions of World War I and the ensuing Polish–Soviet War in 1920. He was appointed Commander-in-Chief and Inspector General of the Polish Armed Forces following Marshal Józef Piłsudski‘s death in 1935. Rydz served in this capacity during Second European War and until he became President.

As war loomed, political differences fell away and defense became the national priority. As a result, Rydz‘s stature eclipsed even that of the President Mościcki. After succesful defensive campaign confirmed him as dictator admired by virtually entire populace, he took position of President of Poland, giving his mace[1] to Bolesław Wieniawa-Długoszewski. Although he at first invited Felicjan Sławoj-Składowski, previous Prime Minister, to form government, his growing sympathy towards nationalist movements led to nomination of Bolesław Piasecki, leader of ONR-Falanga for Prime Minister. This coincided with cordial relations between Poland and Italy and formation of Roman Pact. Despite that Poland was still supported by Britain and France as bulwark against Soviet Union and communism.

Rydz-Śmigły's presidential tenure lasted until his death when he was suceeded by Władysław Anders (August Zaleski was Acting President until Anders' election), who temporarily sidelined Piasecki and appointed conservatives for Prime Ministers. Śmigły's legacy is remembered differently depending on political differences - he is praised as a statesman - creator of strong Polish state and it's colonial empire by nationalists and conservatives, or regarded as hardline dictator by more left-wing historians. In popular view he is seen as defender against Bolsheviks and Nazis, although some historians credit success in Second European War to individual generals and officers, pointing out that Rydz's role was ultimately miniscule.

Did Collin not rape children in his Nazi bunker in this TL or do states like Louisiana just not care?
A vastly different world and no American Nazi Party in the 70s means that the specific situation where he raped kids did not come about. And if he were a child molester in a different form in TTL, he was fairly connected with the CPUSSA during that time and so nobody would have touched him for it.

George W. Bush was President of the United States, overseeing the 9/11 Attacks and the start of the Great Middle Eastern War. After losing the 2004 Presidential Election to Howard Dean and John Kerry in the Ohio Recounts on November 14, he would be assassinated the day after during Operation: Bow and Arrow, in which Vice President Cheney would succeed him. Today, Bush is held up by the American people as a martyr who was ruthlessly murdered by Russian agents and is one of the more favorably-viewed Presidents.

Dick Cheney was the shortest-reigning Heads of State, serving for 18 days. However, he is ranked by historians as one of the most influential Presidents of modern history due to his involvement in Operation: Bow and Arrow; the coup against President Bush and President-elect Dean. Cheney's major actions as President was to appoint Michael Bloomberg as Vice President and then resign, handing the office to Bloomberg.

Michael R. Bloomberg is arguably the most infamous and despised Presidents of modern history due to his 7-year dictatorial reign over the country. His term kicked off with the invalidation of the 2004 Presidential election with fraud allegations and arrest of Howard Dean. More dissidents and anti-war advocates would be jailed and/or executed, such as then-Congressman Bernie Sanders. During his faux swearing-in on January 20, 2005, he declared the birth of the New American Order under him as Marshal of the American State. Those opposed to his reign would flee to Alaska and declare a new government-in-exile, and would declare Ron Paul as their new President.

Bloomberg's foreign policy was also as controversial as his domestic rule, with the increased military presence in Iraq, and later Syria, Libya, and Iran. The American State would also angrily withdraw from NATO due to opposition of various member states in continued assistance of America in the Great Middle Eastern War. Another international spat occurred between Bloomberg's American State and Paul's government-in-exile over UN membership, with both governments claiming true representation of the United States.

The American State would eventually see its days numbered following the Great Depression, in which discontent over his reign would hid a boiling point, leading to the Tea Party Revolution. During the bloodless revolt, the Russian-backed dictatorship would be deposed by the rebels, and Ron Paul was installed as the one true President of the United States. The Marshal's fate now is in doubt after his trial at the Hague ending in a hung court, and the American Supreme Court has yet to hear United States versus Michael Reubens Bloomberg.

2008 clinton vs mccain.png

Barack Obama decides its too early to make a run for the Presidency, and Russ Feingold comes in as the sole major opponent of Hillary Clinton in the primaries. Feingold makes an upset victory in the Iowa Caucuses, but Clinton is able to save her campaign with a victory in the New Hampshire Primary. She captures the nomination on March 5, after Feingold withdraws.
 
Some attempt I made to make analogies between the 2020 American Election to the April 2019 General Election:

the 2020 United States Presidential Election
1584719346057.png


The 2020 United States presidential election was the 59th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. The Republican nominee, President Newt Gingrich, and his running mate, Vice President Lee Zeldin, won the largest number of electoral votes but couldn't form a coalition. They defeated the National Union ticket of retired General William H. McRaven of North Carolina and Representative Stephen Colbert of Maryland.
As the incumbent president, Gingrich secured the Republican nomination with no serious opposition. The National Union party, formed by a merger of McRaven's Resilience party and Colbert's Future party, along with a couple of small parties and independent tickets, became the largest opposition ticket to Gingrich, who was suspected to have extralegal affairs.
The campaigns focused heavily on Gingrich's legal problems, issues, and debate centered largely around the legitimacy of Gingrich being the president while taking care of his legal issues. Other issues included fiscal policy, the future of social insurance programs, the status of the National Service, and the legitimacy of several parties, notably the United Right party, which including the America First Party, and the two la Raza Unida tickets. Foreign policy was also discussed, including the Iranian nuclear program and appropriate counteractions to terrorism.
Gingrich was able to narrowly beat McRaven and form a coalition within the electoral college. He received the electoral votes of the Black Baptist Freedmen's party, Mormon People's party, Evangelical United Right and Broad-Tent Together, America in return for several policy concessions and departments, but couldn't get the Jewish Neoconservative Home in America party to join the coalition because of the mutual disagreement between the parties on the status of the National Service. Gingrich tried to find defectors within the National Union and Democratic parties but didn't manage to convince them to join his coalition. Home in America leader, Bill Kristol, suggested that Gingrich and McRaven will form a unity cabinet, but both sides rejected the proposal. As no candidate managed to achieve 270 electoral votes, the election was thrown to the house.
