By The Emperor! – 2019 Year In Review

Hello Loyal Readers!

It has been a minute! We apologize sincerely for the lack of news and consistent Truth coverage these past several weeks. Our staff was plagued by what some call the “Gellerpox”, followed by their summary release in order to save the remaining staff. These surviving staff then had Sanguinala duties and boy howdy did they take some time to complete!

We here at BTE! hope you all have had a Merry Happy Holiday Season, and that your New Year realities are at least 55% positive in outlook!

As the year comes to a close, we had a number of news stories we wanted to bring coverage on to you, our Truth-seeking followers. While we brought to you as much as we could (and as much as could be handled), there were a number of events we didn’t have time to cover in full.

Instead, for your edification, we have presented them as single news headlines, from which you can accurately speculate with wild abandon!
