2019 Seybold Civil War Threat
|Seybold Civil War Threats|
The Seybold Civil War Threats was a series of threats which took place in the Democratic Republic of Seybold relating to a civil war. The threats first started on 8 March 2019 when head of the now-defunct Stalinist Party of Seybold Maxmillian Joseph threatened multiple government members that he would declare a civil war against multiple political parties in the Democratic Republic of Seybold.
On 8 March 2019, Maxmillian Joseph, leader of the newly founded radicalist Stalinist Party of Seybold, announced that he was considering declaring a “civil war” on the majority of political parties in the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The reason that “majority” was said was that the Socialist Party of Seybold sided with the Stalinist Party, due to similar ideologies and political placement. President Cooper Norfolk and other government members initially did not take this announcement seriously, but Mr. Joseph started saying rude statements to him and other government members related to the “civil war”. This frightened President Cooper Norfolk, making him re-think his previous initial reaction to this “declaration of civil war”. “I knew that Mr. Joseph is strong enough to fight a war, as he has previously defended himself in multiple previous fights,” said President Cooper Norfolk in a statement. “But I personally do not think he would have the social strength to gather support in the Democratic Republic of Seybold.” President Cooper Norfolk seemed to be slightly scared of Mr. Joseph, but President Cooper Norfolk did believe that he may have had more social and political knowledge than Mr. Joseph contained. Overall, this made President Cooper Norfolk very uncomfortable with the ongoing situation.
Emergency Council Meets
To discuss the current problem and get help in the situation, President Cooper Norfolk founded the Seybold Emergency Council. The Seybold Emergency Council is a Council of two people, President Cooper Norfolk and Iyan Seeker, that will meet every time there is an emergency worthy of government discussion. The Seybold Emergancy Council is not an official part of the Seyboldish government, even though it is operated by government members, nor is it a seperate organization or company. President Cooper Norfolk has described the Seybold Emergency Council as just a semi-federal group of important government members. The Emergancy Council first met on 8 March 2019 at 18:00 GMT-5 on the official Democratic Republic of Seybold Discord Server.
During the meeting they discussed the current situation with the Joseph Civil War Threats. The meeting went as the following:
“Mr. Norfolk: Welcome to the Emergency Council Meeting channel.
Mr. Seeker: I’m here.
Mr. Norfolk: This nights discussion: ‘Civil War’ by Maxmillian (Max) Joseph. All present say ‘aye’. Aye.
Mr. Seeker: Aye.
Mr. Norfolk: Role call complete. Time for discussion.
Mr. Seeker: So what we are here for is about Max’s attempt at civil war?
Mr. Norfolk: Maxmillian Joseph, referred to as Mr. Joseph, has threatened to declare a “Civil War” against multiple political parties in the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The Socialist Party of Seybold has sided with Mr. Joseph. What should we do first?
Mr. Seeker: Yes I agree. If he does not comply, I think we should probably deport him.
Mr. Norfolk: I don’t really take this “declaration” seriously, but Mr. Joseph could harass members of the government at [REDACTED]. I do not agree with deportation, as I can not legally do that. But, we could sue him for treason if he does declare “war”.
Mr. Seeker: That sounds like a better idea.
Mr. Norfolk: Do you have any suggestions, Mr. Seeker?
Mr. Seeker: Is there some way to remove him from being the head of his Stalinist Party? This is the only reason he is declaring war, political parties.
Mr. Norfolk: No, but we could condemn his party. Pretty much. We can’t remove him from the head of his party, since it is an entity separate form the government.
Mr. Seeker: How do we condemn his party?
Mr. Norfolk: We could come together with other political parties to sign an unofficial bill of sorts to condemn his party. He would feel some pressure to resign or dissolve his party, but he may not feel the pressure. [REDACTED].
Mr. Seeker: Let’s start with the bill and see where that leads. I will sign that.
Mr. Norfolk: Okay. I would sign it too. Now, we must move on to other preparations. What if he does declare war and the condemning has no affect whatsoever on him? I suggest we slightly up defense in Seybold and [REDACTED].
Mr. Seeker: [REDACTED] and yes, we should up defense.
Mr. Norfolk: Good. Anything else you would like to add before the council is adjourned?
Mr. Seeker: We should inform the other party heads of the possibility of war [REDACTED]?
Mr. Norfolk: I will [REDACTED].
Mr. Seeker: Thank you.
Mr. Norfolk: Thank you for your time. Meeting is adjourned. No problem.
Mr. Seeker: [REDACTED].
Mr. Norfolk: Yes.”
Some information from the Emergency Council were redacted for privacy reasons or so Maxmillian Joseph could not see the entire plans of the Seybold Reserve. R.C. Jason Keourac approved the reports coming into the public and chose what was redacted and what was kept for the public.
Maxmillian Joseph Surrenders
On 9 March 2019, the leader of the Stalinist Party of Seybold Maxmillian Joseph released a short statement to President Cooper Norfolk relating to the "Civil War" declaration previously made by him. In the statement, Mr. Joseph claimed that he reconsidered his choice to declare "war" against multiple political parties in the Democratic Republic of Seybold and decided not to declare a "war" on the majority of political parties of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. This surprised President Cooper Norfolk so much that he did not initially believe him. But, Mr. Joseph did seem to sincerely want to put an end to the "civil war" threats that he had been using in the previous day. President Cooper Norfolk was relieved when he heard this new development. He did not want to have to fight anyone, even though he thought he could stop the "civil war" with a simple discussion.
When Seybold Today tried to ask Mr. Joseph what he thought about the "civil war" threats coming to an end, he refused to answer except for saying "okay" and "alrighty" after we apologized for bothering him. President Cooper Norfolk believes that Maxmillian Joseph stopped the "civil war" threats due to not wanting to be confrontational. But, he admits that he can not speak for Maxmillian Joseph, but that he what he believes what went through Mr. Joseph mind during this time. Maxmillian Joseph may still be required to attend court for treason and/or conspiring against the government. He will not be prosecuted unless President Cooper Norfolk and/or Iyan Seeker, the two government members most affected by this, want to prosecute him. "I definitely would like to prosecute Mr. Joseph," said President Cooper Norfolk in a statement released to the Seybold Today newspaper. "He put me and other government members through a situation that I do not want to go through again. I had to sacrifice personal time to write an extra long newspaper article, create an Emergency Council and hold a meeting under that Emergency Council."
Maxmillian Joseph will most likely not have a court hearing until September or October 2019, when a court of sorts has been approved to be created and a judge is appointed to the court. The court that Mr. Joseph will most likely have a case it would be a High Court, which Seybold currently does not have. Despite that, Iyan Seeker and President Cooper Norfolk do want to have Maxmillian Joseph punished for his crimes. His punishment will probably either be a direct 5% tax on whatever his pay is at for five months, house arrest, deportation, or even some form of imprisonment, but that is too radical.
On 28 March 2019, newly appointed Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen announced that he had received a request from the Office of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The request that Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen received from the Office of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold was relating to an investigation. The investigation that was requested is going to be a somewhat short investigation related to finding out more information on a national threat to the Democratic Republic of Seybold. This so-called national threat is Maximilian Joseph, chairman of the Stalin-Socialist Party of Seybold, past chairman of the Stalinist Party of Seybold, and the sole person who was involved in the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threat. Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen has been instructed to investigate Maximillian Joseph so that they have additional information against Maximillian Joseph when he is sued with charges of Treason and Conspiring Against the Government. The lawsuit will probably officially occur sometime in September or October, which is when it is expected that the Democratic Republic of Seybold would have a High Court Judge appointed and multiple laws specifying what treason means in the Democratic Republic of Seybold. Those two things have to happen for President Cooper Norfolk, who also requested the investigation against Maximillian Joseph, to have the ability to sue Maximillian Joseph. Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen has promised that the investigation will take no longer than about one to two weeks. This means that the investigation will most likely be finished in Early April to Mid-April by Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen. Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen is working by himself with this investigation and will be working on it as much as he possibly can. This investigation, nicknamed the "Itzen Probe", is the first ever investigation that the Attorney General of the Democratic Republic of Seybold and Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen has done and the first federal investigation that citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold have experienced. To help Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen start the investigation, it is rumoured that President Cooper Norfolk gave Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen instructions on what he had to do during the investigation. The instructions were put inside of a case that was then transferred to Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen at about 12:00 GMT-5. Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen did not do anything that we are allowed to share to the public relating to the Investigation, but we do know that he most likely researched the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats and other topics related to the investigation. Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen will be releasing a completely uncensored report, which is legal due to the Democratic Republic of Seybold having no laws relating to censorship, when the investigation ends. The report, nicknamed the "Itzen Report" by citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, will be released to the public through the Seybold Today Newspaper whenever the investigation is officially declared as "finished" or "done" by Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen. If the investigation shows that Maximillian Joseph has even more to do with the 2019 Seybold Civil Threats then he currently does, that would be great. That would supply more information for the previously mentioned lawsuit that most likely will occur in September 2019.
Due Date Shortened
On 3 April 2019, it was heard by an author of the Seybold Today newspaper that the current President Cooper Norfolk had done something related to the Itzen Investigation. What President Cooper Norfolk did with the Itzen Investigation was not necessarily a bad or good thing, so it was a pretty neutral decision. What President Cooper Norfolk did that was related to the Itzen Investigation was shortening the time limit for the Itzen Investigation. Due to unknown reasons, the Itzen Investigation time limit was shortened by two months. The Itzen Investigation time limit was most likely shortened by two months because of the fact that Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen had "slacked off", meaning he had not done any work on the investigation, and for other confidential reasons that the Seybold Today newspaper does not know about currently. The Itzen Investigation was officially limited to 5 May 2019 at 12:00 GMT-5 by a direction of the Office of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold in order to make him feel pressured to actually work. Mr. Owen Itzen claimed to be okay with the time limitation, even though he seemed to be slightly upset when the news was delivered, according to President Cooper Norfolk.
On 5 April 2019, Attorney General Sons Owen Itzen announced that he had released the memo for the Itzen Investigation. The public of the Democratic Republic of Seybold was very excited about the memo being released, as the majority of citizen want Maximilian Joseph, the man at the centre of this investigation, to be deported from the micronation. New citizens and old citizens alike are very happy about the memo being released, especially the citizens that were affected by the actions of Maximillian Joseph. Attorney General Sons Owen Itzen released the Itzen Memo to the current President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold President Cooper Norfolk to be reviewed and grammatically edited. President Cooper Norfolk finished the duty at about 06:00 GMT-5 and then distributed it among the citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold about two hours after it was edited. “I personally think that the memo from Mr. Itzen is quite vague and could have been improved,” said President Cooper Norfolk earlier this morning. President Cooper Norfolk May have thought that because the Itzen Memo did not really put direct blame on any one particular that has residence in the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The first copy of the Itzen Memo that was released to the public was released to the Seybold Today newspaper, which was a very special moment for the Seybold Today newspaper staff. The Itzen Memo paper is titled “Office of the Attorney General, Itzen Memo” in all caps at the top of the Itzen Memo paper. The Itzen Memo says quote, “Unfortunate events have ruled out over the past few weeks. Treason, slacking, threatening, and a possible civil war. I don’t like to point out names, ever, but President Cooper Norfolk has informed me through verbal communication and physical evidence that Maximillian Joseph has threatened people and threatened to murder a government member. I’m not sure of how I think of this myself. I do not know if the correct punishment is to deport him, but I’m sure the president will make the correct decision.” The Memo is somewhat vague but does release other information about what Maximillian Joseph did. It revealed that Maximillian Joseph has committed two more offenses, harassment and threatening a government member. Those two offenses are not officially against the law, but they are definitly shamed upon by the Seyboldish community and they are horrible crimes to commit. The Seybold Today newspaper is guessing that the harrassment charges are coming from Iyan Seeker and President Cooper Norfolk, since they have accused Maximillian Joseph of verbally and physically harrassing them. We do not know where the charge of Threating a Government Member came from, but it is expected to be a newer government member such as Liam Henry or Ben Oh. This memo is one of the largest developments of the Itzen Investigation and the Democratic Republic of Seybold overall. This gives more information to make it seem like a good idea to deport Maximillian Joseph, which was suggested by Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen in the Itzen Memo. President Cooper Norfolk was given the power to deport Maximillian Joseph, even though he will most likely order the head of the Seybold Department of Immigration Emmett Winters to deport him through an order of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. Government members and citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold alike seem to be very happy about the new memo and the fact that Maximillian Joseph could be deported. If he was deported, he would be deported back to his country of origin, the United States of America, where he has a home and family.
On 6 April 2019, Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen, who was representing the Office of the Attorney General of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, announced that he had released the full Itzen Report of the official Itzen Investigation. That announcement was made at about 12:00 GMT-5 to President Cooper Norfolk, who then grammatically edited the report and submitted it to the public of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The Itzen Report has been long awaited by citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold and many citizens were very happy to see it finally come. The Itzen Report is most likely the most important part of Seyboldish history for 2019 and in the entire existence of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. It is important because it is the first Federal Investigation that has occurred in the Democratic Republic of Seybold and it could result in the first deportation of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. This was also big news for the Norfolk Administration, as they had worked hard to get the investigation completed. The Norfolk Administration definitely celebrated the Report being released and had a small celebration consisting of President Cooper Norfolk only. After President Cooper Norfolk checked the report for grammar and spelling, he decided to release it to the public of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. He did this via the “Official Seybold Discord Server” and messaging citizens who had expressed feelings against Maximilian Joseph, the man at the center of the Itzen Investigation. The Itzen Report is four pages long with four paragraphs that describe the crimes of Maximilian Joseph and the Investigation overall. It is titled “Office of the Attorney General, Itzen Report, Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen, 6 Apr. 2019, Itzen Investigation.” The investigation says quote, “This Report is a Federal Investigation ordered by the Office of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, specifically the Head of the Norfolk Administration President Cooper Norfolk, on 28 March 2019 in a Private School in Florida. This Investigation was originally dated to be finished anytime during September or August of 2019, according to the Direction of the Office of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. I am finishing this investigation earlier due to stress from the public of the Democratic Republic of Seybold and other personal stress. I was able to get all the information I needed and was able to come to a conclusion relating to Maximilian Joseph and the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats. That topic will be further discussed in the following paragraphs, but there still is more to be heard from me, Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen, in this paragraph. I would like to make sure that the citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold understand that I did receive a folder full of information, most of it confidential, from the Office of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. I will only be able to share some of the information in that folder because the public does not have clearance to read that sensitive information. It should also be noted that this Investigation takes place in three main locations. The three main locations are the Federal District of New Springfield, a Private School in Florida, and the ‘Seybold Discord Server,’ which is a website and mobile app that serves as a communication software. That server is used by the Seybold government members to communicate with each other and other micronationalists who have also been ‘invited’ to the ‘Seybold Discord Server.’ All of the offences that Maximilian Joseph has committed are not against the law, but they are offences that are heavily shamed upon by the micronational community. Just as a warning, the following paragraphs may involve some heavy and disturbing language and may not be suitable for some viewers. For some background information, the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats was a situation involving Maximilian Joseph where he threatened to declare civil war against every other political party in the Democratic Republic of Seybold. After an Emergency Council Meeting and further negotiations with Maximilian Joseph, he decided to quote, “call off the civil war” one day after he ‘declared civil war.’ This prompted a federal investigation into his involvement of Maximilian Joseph in the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats. In this investigation, it was easy to see that Maximilian Joseph was the main cause of the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats. The evidence that was provided to me showed that the threatened the civil war against all other political parties of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The evidence that was provided to me that showed that Maximilian Joseph was the main cause of the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats was eyewitness reports from President Cooper Norfolk and Head of the Seybold Department of Construction Iyan Seeker. They apparently were there the moment that Maximilian Joseph “declared a civil war.” Another piece of evidence that Maximilian Joseph was the main cause of the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats is that Maximilian Joseph himself admits to considering a declaration of Civil War. He had talked about this publicly and apparently ‘declared civil war,’ or at least threatening to, multiple times unofficially after the main ‘declaration of civil war.’ This information allowed me to give Maximilian Joseph his first two federal charges. Those two charges were Treason, for declaring a civil war during a calm period of time in the Democratic Republic of Seybold and Conspiring Against the Government, for reasons close to the Treason charge on Maximilian Joseph. Maximilian Joseph does have other charges that will be explained in the next paragraph. Maximilian Joseph has other chargers that may be more serious than or equal to treason and conspiring against the government. He has reportedly harassed multiple citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, all of them are government members. According to information from eyewitness accounts from Iyan Seeker and President Cooper Norfolk have allowed me to release the Maximilian Joseph verbally and physically harassed the government members mentioned above. Maximilian Joseph reportedly called President Cooper Norfolk “Burnt B**ch” and told him to “F**k off” multiple times and hit both of the government members mentioned above with a lunchbox on multiple occasions before and after the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats. This is not a very serious offence, but I would like to classify this offence as Harassment due to the number of times the harassment occurred. Maximilian Joseph also griefed multiple MicroWiki pages that are related to the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The pages that were somewhat griefed was the MicroWiki Page of Head of the Seybold Department of Environmental Protection and Carbon Control Nathan Nats and the main page of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. On Nathan Nats’ page, Maximilian Joseph removed the common depiction of Nathan Nats from his Infobox and put “I like trains I like trains.” When the photo was put back up, Maximilian Joseph changed the tagline “Common Depiction of Nathan Nats 35 years older and more white” instead of just “Common Depiction of Nathan Nats.” On the main page of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, Maximilian Joseph wrote things like “Due to A corrupt government, one of the Stalinist leaders have declared war to hopefully save the government. Good luck everyone,” “This is a warning of deportion threat. I will go further in order for me to be a member if this Micronations,” “I would consider that a… warning threat to deport me and I will get other Micronations involved in this. The bad ones,” and “this Micronations government is very corrupt. They have constantly tried to deport me and are finally doing it on Friday. Reasons are unknown.” Maximilian Joseph also attempted to blank the page, but effectively put the entire page into an infobox. The edits were reverted by President Cooper Norfolk, but it was still a nuisance. This is not a crime, I just felt that it should have been put in this report to point out that he has also done this. If it were a crime, it would most likely loosely fit under the category of Harassment. Another horrible thing that Maximilian Joseph has done is he has threatened to murder a government member. This is one of the most serious crimes committed by Maximilian Joseph that was uncovered by this investigation. This crime would be classified as Threatening a Government Member of the Democratic Republic of Seybold or just Threatening a Government Member. The Government Member that was threatened by Maximilian Joseph was the new head of the Seybold Department of Immigration Emmett Winters. The situation came up in a conversation with President Cooper Norfolk, Emmett Winters, and Maximilian Joseph when the topic of the Itzen Investigation came up somehow. The conversation became somewhat tense when that topic was brought up. Half-way through an argument suggesting the deportation of Maximilian Joseph, he threatened to murder Emmett Winters. The exact sentence that Maximilian Joseph, according to President Cooper Norfolk, was quote, “I will starting hurting people if this happens, you’re first Emmett.” The sentence was very disturbing to both people in the conversation and they left the area as soon as possible. Because of this statement, Emmett Winters was given special protection from the Seybold Reserve and should continue this protection until he feels that he is safe from Maximilian Joseph. This would be the fourth charge that Maximilian Joseph has been found guilty of committing. My suggestion, as the Attorney General of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, is to immediately deport Maximilian Joseph because of his charges of Treason, Conspiring Against the Government, Harassment, and Threatening a Government Member. The President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold has full power to do this and I wish that he would do something along those lines as soon as he possibly can to remove the threat, Maximilian Joseph, from the Democratic Republic of Seybold. This concludes Attorney General SONS Owen Itzen’s Investigation into Maximilian Joseph.” The investigation concludes that Maximillian Joseph has committed four federal crimes that could be punishable by deportation. The four final crimes that the Attorney General of the Democratic Republic of Seybold determined that Maximilian Joseph has committed is Treason, Conspiring Against the Government, Harassment and Threatening a Government Member. The charges of Treason and Conspiring Against the Government come from the 2019 Seybold Civil War Threats. Those two charges were expected to be discovered as soon as the investigation had begun. The other two charges, Harassment and Threatening a Government Member, were not expected at all. According to the Itzen Report, Maximilian Joseph verbally harassed government members, such as Iyan Seeker and President Cooper Norfolk, with very inappropriate words that will not be used in this newspaper. The charge of Threating a Government Member is a very serious crime and one that the Democratic Republic of Seybold did not expect to occur. Maximilian Joseph apparently threatened to murder the Head of the Seybold Department of Immigration Emmett Winters, which is a very serious crime in the United States of America, which is where Maximilian Joseph will most likely be deported and is shamed upon by the micronational community. Thankfully, Emmett Winters was given protection from the Seybold Reserve so he would not be attacked by Maximilian Joseph.
Maximilian Joseph’s Deportation
On 8 April 2019, the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold announced that he had printed a Notice of Deportation. This Notice of Deportation was printed by him on behalf of the Seybold Department of Immigration since the Head of the Seybold Department of Immigration Emmett Winters does not have the technology to print such things at the moment. The Notice of Deportation was going to Maximilian Joseph, who is going to be deported on the ground of him committing the crimes of Treason, Conspiring against the Government, Harassment, and Threatening a Government Member. The Seybold Department of Immigration released the Notice of Deportation to the public before it was given to Maximilian Joseph. The Notice of Deportation says quote, "Dear Mr. Maximilian Joseph, the Seybold Department of Immigration, the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, and the Attorney General of the Democratic Republic had determined that you are a threat to the government and public of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. You were deemed as a threat in those two areas because of the Itzen Report, which proves that you committed Treason, Conspiring against the Government, Harassment, and Threatening a Government Member. This document will officially announce the deportation of Maximilian Joseph. Once you are deported, you will not be asked to fill out the Census of Seybold, you will be removed from all of your occupations, and you will not be counted as a citizen of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. You will be deported to your home country, the United States of America. You should already have a residence in that nation, but the Seyboldish Government will happily help you find a home if you need help finding one." The document says that Maximilian Joseph will be deported to the United States of America, which makes sense because he is a resident of the United States of America, as soon as this document is signed by the head of the Seybold Department of Immigration. The document required the signature of the President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold and the Head of the Seybold Department of Immigration. President Cooper Norfolk signed the Notice of Deportation at about 08:00 GMT-5 in the Federal District of New Springfield while the Head of the Seybold Department of Immigration Emmett Winters signed the Notice of Deportation at about 08:40 GMT-5, which officially deported Maximilian Joseph. When Maximilian Joseph received the Notice of Deportation by the Seybold Department of Immigration, he reportedly ate half of the people. "I ate it because paper tastes wonderful" was Maximilian Joseph's response when asked by the Seybold Today newspaper. The reporter who interviewed Maximilian Joseph was somewhat horrified by his barbaric actions and left the area in which Maximilian Joseph was sitting. This was the first time that a citizen has been deported from the Democratic Republic of Seybold and the first time that the population of the Democratic Republic of Seybold has dropped. The population dropped by 5.56%, meaning that the Democratic Republic of Seybold only had a population of seventeen.
