Horsea & Flora Blackford when they see their own son turned into this
Jokes aside, Joshua Blackford, is a controversial President by 2023. His domestic policies are well-liked, much like other Socialist Presidents, but Joshua is blamed for the current state of Venezuela. When his son: Alexander, was running for President in 2020, he barely won the primary because his last name was Blackford, but he did easily win the general election because of this: https://www.alternatehistory.com/fo...federacy-tl-191.185493/page-282#post-23944773.

So is Venezuela war basically a mixed with Vietnam and Soviet-Afghan war into hell
Venezuela is tl-191 Soviet-Afghan war.

Picture of the Reichstag attack of 2001.

In 1992, the Venezuelan pro-US government collapsed. Germany was one of the first nations to recognize the State of Venezuela and gave it weapons in the 1992-96 Venezuelan Civil War. In 1996 the Mormon Dominion of Venezuela, led by Hugo Chávez (yes, that Hugo Chávez), was declared and gave refugee to various Mormon terrorist groups; the most notable was the group called the Joesph Smith Movement (JSM), created during the American War in Venezuela.
On September 11, 2001, the JSM attacked Germany. A plane was hijacked by JSM members and hit the Reichstag. The Kaiser, his family, and the entire German government evacuated from the Reichstag before it was hit. The German government learned that the JSM attacked the Reichstag, and their origin was in Venezuela. After Venezuela refused to hand over JSM, Chancellor: Gerhard Schröder declared a war on terrorism, and in October, the German War in Venezuela (2001-21) had begun.

"The enemy of Germany is not our many Mormon friends; it is not our many South American friends. Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every government that supports them. Our war on terror begins with JSM, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped, and defeated."
Excerpts from Schröder's speech to the German public, September 20, 2001.

Funny enough you said that because there actually a video about the Post-SGW and he say the exact same thing about the Mormons in his headcanon too

There is one group that you can use in your canon, the Nauvoo Legion
1679169922269.jpeg

They were militiamen who served Joseph smith back in the early days of Mormonism and served to protect their fellow Mormon from persecution and foreign enemies throughout the migration into Utah. They fought in conflict in Illinois, Mexican American, Indian then Utah and finally in the Bloody American civil war. They were dissolved back in 1887 and joined up into the Utah National Guard in 1894.

And if you know about the Mormon treatment by the US military during the First and Second Great War then I would imagine that Nauvoo legion or neo group that leech off the legacy of them attack the US army and civilian.

TL;DR: You can make Nauvoo legion into the IRA from the travels

That is a better name TBH; I was trying to think of names, but nothing good came to my head. I think I might use that name instead, if you don't mind.

Picture of John Bayard Anderson, Republican presidential candidate in the 1980 election.

Anderson was a member of the Socialist Party and a US House Representative of Illinois's 16th congressional district. In the 1980 Socialist Primary, Anderson voiced opposition against the War in Venezuela, arguing that the US should not be involved in the affairs of other nations (at this point, causalities were low, and the public did not know anything about the atrocities that were committed by the US and the Venezuelan governments). Anderson was defeated at the Socialist Convection to Dokata Senator: George McGovern. Anderson, along with anti-war Socialists, joined the Republicans, whose Convection wasn't held yet. Due to Anderson's popularity, the Republicans nominated Anderson. Anderson campaigned to fix the American economy following a recession at the start of the War in Venezuela and withdrawal all of the troops in Venezuela.
Ultimately Anderson lost the election to Democrat: Ted Kennedy, capturing all of former Canada (except for Nova Scotia), Illinois, and Missouri.

Was on books mentioned what did happen to Lenin? I think that Lenin might had died earlier even due assassination or some of his pre-death stroke which would had damaged Bolsheviks.
Nothing official was ever said of him.

To make things less complicated, he is assassinated in my head canon.
Honestly I don’t really know like only reference about him was his co-conspirators, Stalin at Tsaritsyn during the Russian civil war so he highly dead by the end of the war.

Also guys we finally did it we reach over 300 pages over the course of 12 years in the making
That was Molotov, not Lenin.

What does change majorly for Russia ITTL is the Hispano-Japanese War, which would mean they would have to give up their concessions in Manchuria and Korea peacefully. That would also mean no Revolution of 1905 as we know, though it would still happen later due to rapid industrialization and increasing economic and wealth inequality.
Oh, yeah, that’s right.

I remember mentioning a possible concession being made to Japan from Russia as a possible consequence in TL-191 a while ago.

Recently, I realized that without the OTL Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, the Russians have a slightly larger, existing Navy to use during the First Great War than OTL.

As a head canon, I imagine that this version of Nicholas II never gets that Dragon tattoo in Japan and goes to visit Russian America, instead, where he briefly considers settling down until it’s his turn to be Czar.

Harun el-Raschid Bey: The German who loved the Ottomans and the Prophet Mohammed

Wilhelm%2BHintersatz.jpg

Photograph of El-Raschid wearing a mixed uniform of German and Ottoman regalia

Born Wilhelm Hintersatz in 1886, El-Raschid was a German military officer who fought in Ottoman Turkey and converted to Islam, during which he would take on a Muslim name. Throughout the Interbellum period, he was among several German officers and diplomats who attempted to form a continuous military alliance and friendship between the German Empire and the Ottoman Empire. With the support of the German government and a personal recommendation from the Kaiser, El-Raschid tried to convince the Ottomans to join them against the Radius Powers once the Second Great War began. Despite being unsuccessful in securing an active ally, El-Raschid won the respect and admiration of Muslims in the Ottoman Empire and outside of it when he secured funding to re-build Germany's first mosque in Wünsdorf after the war, although not without controversy.

This is good. However, I don't like the name Radius Powers. I get it's supposed to be a play on Axis Powers, but still.

Picture of a voting booth in Sonora, 1954.

To distract the civilian population from hardships facing the nation, the Mexican Freedom Front, a party in the years before the Second Great War and surged in membership and included some members of Action Française, had taken power and promised to "retake what is rightfully ours," referring to Chihuahua, Sonora, and the Baja Califonia Peninsula. In 1950, the Third Mexican War began with a surprise attack on Chihuahua, and Sonora. The tide of the war was going against Mexico by the end of 1952. In the Summer of 1953, Mexico surrendered.
The US, not wanting to deal with occupying another nation, withdrew from Mexico and fully withdrew by 1959.
In Chihuahua, Sonora, and the Baja Califonia Peninsula, a referendum was held in early 1954 if they wished to join the US or the US-backed Third Mexican Republic. In addition, the parts that used to belong to Sonora that were absorbed into New Mexico in the Great War had a referendum on whether it wished to rejoin Sonora. Chihuahua, Sonora, and the Baja Califonia Peninsula voted to join the US, and the parts that used to belong to Sonora rejoined Sonora. In 1956 the Baja Califonia Peninsula was admitted into the Union, while Chihuahua and Sonora were admitted in early 1960.
Today some Mexican nationalists want the three states back, along with the Second Republic of Yucatán (which declared independence during the Third Mexican War). The Mexican government has since denounced these beliefs.
The three states, as of 2023, are swing states in Presidential Elections.

The 2022 accidental bombing of the World Trade Center.
At 9:14 AM, December 4th, 2022, a bomb exploded under the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Large sections of the underground parking garage collapsed. Roughly 5 minutes later, NDNY arrived at the World Trade Center. Fearing this was an act of terrorism, the bomb squad and the NYPD arrived. It took roughly 9 hours to put out the fire. By then, 12 people tragically died, and 700 more were injured. In the following days, it was discovered that a 77-year-old Confederate bomb had detonated near the parking garage. When this was revealed, lots of people wondered how the hell did this happen? It turned out that during an air raid in the second great war, a Confederate bomber dropped said the bomb in question on top of the area the World Trade Center is in today. The bomb failed to detonate. And was buried deep underground. The bomb crashed into a crater from a previous air raid. Due to the bomb being so deep, people never noticed the bomb. Even when the sight broke ground for the World Trade Center in the late '60s, no one noticed it.

Leopold III of Belgium, king of Entente-occupied Belgium.

220px-Charlotte,_Grand_Duchess_o.jpg

Charlotte, Grand Duchess of Entente-occupied Luxembourg.

The Belgium and Luxembourg royal families fled to the United Kingdom after the German victory in the Great War. During the early days of the Second Great War, which saw the Entente "liberate" the Low Countries from "German subjection" (which was the excuse the Entente used to invade the Netherlands), Leopold III and Charlotte were installed as the heads of states of Entente-occupied Belgium and Luxembourg. Unfortunately, they fled to the UK once again after German counterattacks in 1943. The families left London before the Superbomb was dropped on it. The Belgium and Luxembourg royals families would remain in exile until the 1960s, which saw German influence in Europe limited following what later historians called the European Spring, starting in 1958 (more information: https://www.alternatehistory.com/fo...federacy-tl-191.185493/page-301#post-24030806), which saw Germany withdraw from Belgium and Luxembourg.

Picture of Ralph Nader, in a rally in 2007. Vice President of the United States (2001-2009)

Nader was a member of the Socialist Party and tried to run for President of the United States in 1992, channeling Incumbent: Leo Enos as the Party candidate. He lost the primary to Enos. Nader tried to run for President again, losing to Carl Martin of California (Enos' Vice President). The closest he got to the party nomination was in 2000. However, he lost the primary to Leo Victor Enos. With the race being close, Enos chose Nader as his Vice President, not wanting a mishap similar to the 1980 election. The Enos/Nader ticket won the general election over Democrat: John McCain of Mississippi and Republican: John Ashcroft of Missouri. In 2008, Nader announced that he'd not run in the general election.

Picture of Second Great War Barrels in Eastern Berlin, 1959.

The European Spring began in 1958, which saw the fall of the German-backed Fourth French Republic (more information: https://www.alternatehistory.com/fo...federacy-tl-191.185493/page-301#post-24030806). Across Europe, many took to the streets to protest German hegemony over their nations. In Germany itself, many called for more democratic reforms, such as the German Chancellor being elected. Some more radical groups rioted, which caused Barrels to be sent in. By the end of 1959, the German government agreed to the demands and wrote a constitution, limiting the role of the Kaiser as the Head of State and the Chancellor being elected. In 1961, the Chancellor was elected in Germany.

Graph of the early 1990s Recession in the United States.

Economic downturn hit various parts of the world in the early 1990s. Factors include restrictive monetary policy enacted by central banks, primarily in response to inflation concerns, the loss of consumer and business confidence as a result of oil prices going up in independent Ottoman territory, the end of the Bitter Cold and the subsequent decrease in defense spending, the savings and loan crisis, and a slump in office construction resulting from overbuilding during the 1980s.

In the United States, starting from March to December 1991, the government response was sluggish, and unemployment was high into the summer of 1992, an election year in the US. Historians cite the belated recovery as why Incumbent Socialist: Leo Enos lost to Democrat: Bob Dole.
 
The following is a transcript used in what was called the Boston ad for Leo Enos' 1988 Presidential Campaign.

A picture of Boston Harbor after an air raid in the Second Great War.

Narrator: This was Boston Harbor after an air raid by the CSA during the Second Great War. The war shocked our world to its very core. Featherston's desire for conquest did this to Boston, and many other cities, and innocent lives were lost, especially in the black community. We all said "Never Again [1]" after this war, but history is being repeated in South America.

220px-Afghan_village_destroyed_b.jpg

Picture of a destroyed village in Venezuela, ca. early 1980s.


Narrator: What started as a mission to help our friends under Blackford [Joshua Blackford] [2] turned into something not seen since the Second Great War under Kennedy [Ted Kennedy]. Americans have lost family and friends in Venezuela while innocent Venezuelans are massacred. Robertson [Pat Robertson] promises more of the same if elected.
In this election, peace is on the ballot. Vote for Leo Enos on November 8th.


References
1. Similar to the phrase in OTL.
2. Enos was against intervention from the start but didn't mention it when running for President because Joshua was still popular at this point and wanted to keep the Socialist Party strong after John Anderson defected to the Republicans in 1980.
