These are vigenere's and I know that part of the key is "Gaiusoctavius" which decodes to "He was the only blah blah blah"... idk what the other things can be lol...

EDIT: If you use "Gaiusoctaviusoctavius," you get "He was the only pwjtzqjnt and Supreme Couwy Klfyice. I wonder if he gty tkhhk in a bathtub more ymbe bsce." Which can kinda be decoded to "He was the only president and Supreme Court Justice. I wonder if he was? [blank] in a bathtub more [blank] [blank]."
The key is probably GAIUS OCTAVIUS THURINUS. This decodes the first line to say "He was the only president and Supreme Court Justice. I wonder if he got stuck in a bathtub more than once."

EDIT: This probably refers to William Howard Taft, who was both the US president and a Justice of the Supreme Court. I protect CPScienceDude because he went to Taft Middle School.

First of all, that's "Builder Cult," not "Club"...

Secondly, very few people shorten my username to "T2db]d[/b][sic]." I'll see if I can remember who troubles themselves to capitalize the "T," and then ignores the "D." Especially after what the Sassys put in the O.P.
They're the only one on the Forums that's done this, but there's several that do it on the IRC...

I protect myself due to the reference to the builder cult and the political references.

Dang it amk. lol I just solved the clue myself and didn't see the 10th page. It was writing my self-protect when I saw the 10th page. I'm also not completely sure if the clue is for me, though. Because I go to Robert A. Taft middle school, not William H. Taft middle school. But it makes the most sense right now.

EDIT: woah. I guess it's went to robert a taft, not go. Dang that's weird

CPScienceDude and TheChiScientist has been saved. The latter I'm still quite salty about, as the clue for TheChiScientist was not solved, but he managed to protect himself anyways.

The next clue is a little unstAble. RemembeR TecumSeh? Well, this one wasn’t his fault, him being a Prophet and all. Well tHEn, C ya!

Oops, I forgot to tell you! I have no idea why this state is named so. In fact, it’s not far away from another weirdly named state in another country! It’s home of, Tecumseh, Crazy Horse, and Sitting Bull’s kind.

48 hours.
Brace yourselves. Assassination 144 is coming.

Capitalized letters make ARTSPHEC, which unscrambles to CHAPTERS.

"Tecumseh, Crazy Horse, and Sitting Bull's kind" is Shawnee, who are from Oklahoma.
