Controversial radio evangelist Harold Camping, who had previously predicted the rapture would occur on May 21, 2011, calls the eruption "Satan's wrath", citing the name of the mountain.

  • 5 - As a result of SOPA being passed, the video-sharing website YouTube is shut down, with the FBI labelling it "a harbor for pirates". This causes massive riots in various cities around the country, as many YouTube users are arrested and incarcerated without trial for copyright infringement, all unfairly. Fair Use is also abolished for "encouraging piracy and undermining corporate finances", as MPAA headquarters is firebombed by irate internet users, killing CEO Chris Dodd. Comcast and Warner Music Group's websites are attacked and defaced with images depicting gore, pornography, and hentai, as well as messages warning of an attack on Washington that "would make 9/11 look like a hissy fit".
  • 6 - The Internet Blackout of 2012 begins. Over 10 billion websites are shut down for copyright infringement, and millions of Americans are arrested and imprisoned without trial.

Many on Capitol Hill defect to the rebellion, as the Second Civil War begins.
  • 7 - President Obama is critically injured in an assassination attempt during a presidential address regarding the riots regarding the internet blackouts.
  • 8 - President Obama is reported to be in a coma. The same day, the American Freedom Coalition detonates a homemade bomb aboard the USS Mount Whitney (LCC-20), sinking it, killing 670, and removing one of two American command ships. Reports of American naval ships and combat aircraft being hijacked by the rebels also start cropping up.
  • 9 - Joe Biden assumes the Presidency for the time being. On that same day, Facebook is shut down and Mark Zuckerberg is arrested for "harboring copyright infringing material", angering millions of users. Later that day, California and Texas threaten secession unless SOPA is repealed, calling the bills "a direct violation of the First Amendment". Biden responds by threatening a full-scale military invasion. Governor Jerry Brown, already occupied by the cleanup from the Northern California Earthquake and Tsunami, readies a secession bill. The rebellion, meanwhile, scores a major victory in Suisun Bay by destroying the Mothball Fleet and taking the USS Iowa (BB-61) as their flagship.
  • 10 - The group Anonymous declares war against the United States and begins one of the largest hacking operations in history after the social-media website Reddit is shut down for "being a meeting place for rebels". Speaking of which, the USS Iowa successfully completes a bombing operation of NAS Alameda, and takes the USS Hornet (CV-12) museum as their headquarters, supported by the State of California.
  • 11 - With the help of millions of supporters, Anonymous hacks and shuts down dozens of government websites and ISPs, releasing hundreds of classified documents to the public.

The government is powerless to stop the leaks, and Wikipedia is successfully unblocked by Anonymous. The entire Wikimedia Foundation is shut down four hours later, and its owners are arrested for "disseminating anti-American information and being an unauthorized repository for information on copyrighted material".
  • 12 - The United States declares Anonymous a terrorist group as bombs are set off in the Library of Congress, which cause severe damage and destroy 75% of the library's contents. The bombs were made using pressure cookers, and the perpetrators, a pair of students from Virginia Tech, stated their motive as "if the internet goes down, we're taking the Library of Congress' contents with it". Both students are later arrested and executed by firing squad without trial.
  • 13 - 2 million more internet websites are terminated and thousands are arrested and jailed without trial for copyright infringement.
  • 14 - President Obama's would-be assassin is found by FBI agents.
  • 15 - Tensions between the government and citizens of the United States explode as millions of angry people fill the streets and march on the nearest government building, burning many to the ground and killing many politicians. In response, Joe Biden declares martial law and even goes as far to illegalize the internet, stating "anyone who tries to access the internet will be shot without trial". This only causes thousands to tear down American flags, with some even going as far to raise Confederate, Viet Cong, and Soviet flags, and tagging government property with such symbols as penises, female breasts, unflattering portrayals of American government officials and corporate CEOs, and even Swastikas. Calfornia declares secession and unblocks all internet access (Jerry Brown even liberates Mark Zuckerman and everyone incarcerated for copyright infringement), which the US repsonds to by invading California, an invasion pushed back by massive angry mobs and California National Guardsmen. The American Freedom Coalition goes from a war of attrition to an all-out attack, as cities are overtaken by fighting. Massive dogfights and naval battles between American and rebel forces leave cities and ports in ruin, and there are even reports that a nuclear device was detonated in Indianapolis, but these reports are dispelled. By day's end, massive fires are visible from the International Space Station, and civil order is restored through brute force, but fighting between the military and rebels continues. In all, approx. 700,000 civilains, 90,000 soldiers, and a meager 300 rebels are killed. Joe Biden refuses to apologize, institutes martial law, and secretly begins contacting various corporate CEOs.
  • 16 - Hezbollah launches several bomb attacks against three Israeli border towns. In the United States, the rebels successfully capture the Pentagon after a drawn-out firefight with soldiers. Many American generals are captured and interrogated for information.

On the same day, rebel forces enter Washington DC and rush Capitol Hill, taking many Senators, Congressmen, and other government employees prisoner.

Hours later, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, Spain, and Australia declare a war of liberation on the United States, vowing to assist the AFC.
  • 18 - An al-Qaeda sleeper cell activates over ten bombs in the Mall of America, causing massive damage and over 2,000 casualties. This occurs in the midst of a massive riot as US soldiers seize the Apple store to destroy every product, which had an exploit allowing unrestricted internet access, including all of the websites shut down. The cell is tracked down and eliminated by the rebels. The same day, the international coalition lands on American soil, attacking American troops while supplying and equipping the AFC with top-of-the-line weaponry, tanks, jets, and IFVs. Many, many American soldiers defect to the AFC.
  • 19 - Joe Biden declares a federal state of emergency as another al-Qaeda sleeper cell detonates three bombs in the Administration Building, Carnegie Institution of Washington. The FPCON level goes to DELTA. Russia and China declare their support for the AFC, and begin supplying it with weapons and tanks.

It is also revealed that Obama was forced by Harry Reid to sign the bill at gunpoint. Their motive: they were in cahoots with the major corporations of America, who sought to abolish Fair Use owing to greed and power lust, with Reid being promised the biggest paycheck in Senatorial history and presidency. The kicker, though, were plans to convert the country into a corporate police state, where the rich flourish and the working class is a tool to be used for the acquisition of more wealth and power, then killed or sold to the rich as slaves. More than 90 billion websites that were terminated by the effects of the bill are reopened, millions arrested are acquitted and compensated, and the rebels are pardoned and hailed as freedom fighters. The internet celebrates their new-found liberty.
  • 22 - Anonymous announces that they will suspend their hacking operation, adding "if the U.S. government attempts to destroy free speech again, our actions will be much more worse and devastating than before."

One teen from San Jose, CA makes the ultimate threat, stating "he would personally hack into NORAD systems and launch every nuclear weapon the US has at Washington, regardless of whether it makes Russia panic".

  • 29 - Obama re-assumes the presidency. His first act is to remove Joe Biden from office for making the situation during the Second Civil War even worse by oppressing the people and trying to make a "Fourth Reich".

  • 30 - Military presence is increased in Washington D.C. and surrounding areas after the FPCON level goes to BRAVO.

This bill will require all airport terminal officials and personnel to check anyone entering or exiting airplanes and airport terminals.

  • 22 - Grande Cartel soldiers place a bomb on the port of entry in San Diego; over 34 civilians die within.

Edgardo Maximiano states that "the invasion of San Diego was a lesson to the U.S., who continue to meddle in situations that don't concern them".

The bill also illegalizes racial profiling, which the NAACP considers to be a major victory.
