1897: Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo’s military court ends the trial of Andrés Bonifacio and his men for sedition, treason, and the attempt to create counter-revolution. As he awaits the final verdict, Bonifacio joins both the senatorial slates of the Liberal Party and the Nacionalista Party as a guest candidate.
1945: Adolf Hitler marries Eva Braun… inspiring the likes of June Encarnacion, Arnell Ignacio, Lloyd Samartino, John Osmeña, and Ernesto Maceda.
1974: President Richard Nixon says he will release edited tapes made in White House. But before he could even do so, Alan Paguia and Samuel Ong called for a press con and distributed copies of the tapes to the media.
1998: It is revealed in Oslo that in experiments conducted for decades until 1994, Norwegian and American researchers used mentally ill or retarded humans in tests of the biological and genetic effects of X-ray radiation on the body. Two days later, Guido Delgado would claim that he was in possession of a document showing that Noynoy Aquino was “used’ in the said experiments… an allegation flatly denied by Aquino, and the researchers themselves.
