Political Fiction (for now)
January 21, 2017 New York:
In a brief ceremony today at the United Nations building, Hillary Rodham Clinton was officially appointed the first Governor of the American UNion, a colony ruled by the UN Security Council.
UN Security Council President, Barrack Hussein Obama, presided over the ceremony, which was also attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin and China’s President Xi Jinping.
Governor Clinton remarked, “The American UNion is prepared to play its role in the new order. We appreciate the security guaranteed by Russia, China and now Iran. We will make our extensive energy resources available to our partners. We will continue to welcome immigrants from China, the Middle East and South America to our spacious and beautiful land. We are a proud model for a land that can be transformed, where enclaves of different groups can co-exist regardless of place of origin, ethnicity or sexual preference. I will make sure that the masses are treated equally and that order is maintained.”
World leaders hailed the transformation that has occurred in America after the brief civil unrest following the declaration of Martial Law by the then President Barrack Obama in the summer of 2016. The nuclear attack by Iran on Israel, followed by negotiated settlement, brokered by the UN once America chose not to intervene, convinced the American resistance groups that is was futile to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights in the face of the joint nuclear threat posed by their own government, Russia, China and Iran.
Interestingly, China played a major role in the transformation by demanding payment of the enormous US debt in terms of natural resources – coal, natural gas, oil – instead of the increasingly worthless US dollar. Chinese business forces in America controlled by the Communist Chinese government bargained for a non-attack to preserve both their business interests here and the natural resources that would have otherwise been destroyed. The US Chamber of Commerce played a leading role in the negotiations as well. Interestingly, state governors in places like Michigan touted their own vision for having hosted large enclaves of Chinese (and Middle Eastern immigrants) to repopulate cities like Detroit, despite local opposition.
The majority of the population accepted the final transformation resolution in a nationwide referendum because the promise of income equality guaranteed by government payments was more than enough for them to forgo so-called freedoms related to religion and speech. The Tea Party members that forged the initial resistance were silenced once the penalties directed at their family members were aggressively enforced. The conviction of opposition leaders Cruz, West, Paul, Palin, Bolton and Gowdy devastated the resistance movement before it could get widely organized.
Russia President Vladimir Putin commented, “We owe a debt of gratitude to our new President of the UN Security Council, Barack Obama, for his bold enforcement of Alinsky tactics and Lenin principles. Without Barack, the 100 year march to today would have taken even longer. Pope Francis deserves special mention for his embracing of Marxist economic principles. Russia is happy to join with China and Iran in the oversight of the new American UNion. Congratulations to Governor Clinton!”
