The Czar is curious.
Whatever happened to the story of an alleged affair between Barack Obama and mysterious aide Vera Baker in 2004?
If it is indeed a fraudulent story, then let it die a death it deserves. But if it is true, there should be some exposition of the facts. The Czar will not repeat the rumor, but wonders why a small collection of outlying news groups are trying to look into it, and none of the major outlets are. Is because the National Enquirer (who, by the way, has broken major news in the last few years) got credited for the scoop? In other words, is the mainstream media sick and tired of being beaten at their own game by folks with a fraction of the time, money, and resources?
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
