“LADIES AND GENTLEMEN” we all know why we’ve here. So why don’t we take our seats and get right down to business, announced Senator Jackson ‘Ready’ McRae from the very conservative and Republican state of Alabama.
“As we all know, the nation is about to wake up from the nightmare of the last few months; the assassination of two Presidents — former President Thornton and President Elect Garcia — along with half the damn cabinet, and then there’s the little matter of the bombing of our nation, to find that we, you and I, Ladies and Gentlemen, have let a damn Arab take over the White House. And to add insult to injury, Mr. Khamis is planning on running for re-election. Ladies and Gentlemen we must not and can not allow that to happen. We must not turn our nation over to the very people responsible for doing it so much hurt and harm”.
“But President Khamis is an American and a Republican,” shouted the newly elected congresswoman from Montana,
“Sweetpea, McRae, sneered sarcastically, you haven’t been here long enough to find your way to the ladies room without a map. So why don’t you set your pretty young self there and be quiet. Obviously, some old boy in this room, he said, turning and staring daggers at Ned Enzoli, the Elder Senator from Wyoming, invited you here as a means of getting into your panties.”
There was a slight bit of restrained laughter as the young Senator turned red in the face and sulked backwards into her seat.
“Ready mind your manners,” instructed Hailey Biggs, Congresswoman from Louisiana. She’s right. President Khamis is a Republican and we’ll come off looking like traitors to our own party if we try and derail his re-election bid.”
That may be. But he’s still an Arab. And which do you think comes first with him, America or his Arab brethren? We need to find ourselves a tried and true American champion. And we’re not going to derail Khamis’ bid for reelection. No, we’re going to let his Arab brothers do that for us. All we have to do is let those people do what it is they do best.”
“And what is that?” Asked Senator Oliver Hathaway from Utah, one of the Four Corners States that was still dealing with fallout from the bombs dropped on California and Arizona.
“Warring. Those people have been warring with one another or other countries for centuries.”
“War?” America is just getting back on its feet. We’re hardly in a position to wage a war, insisted John Dingus of New York also, the longest serving member of Congress.”
“You’re right,” John. But we don’t actually have to go to war. All we have to do is remind the good citizens of this country – through carefully placed television ads – exactly who it was that masterminded the attack on our nation. And, this is key, he emphasized by wagging his finger at them, that America believes that the Arab countries are still intent on doing us more harm.”
“We already know the countries involved in the attack on America, interrupted Senator Hathaway, and President Khamis has imposed even tougher sanctions on each of them because of their actions. And they have also been sanctioned by the UN for their actions.”
“Sanctions. Is that all you think we should do? Is to impose more sanctions.”
“We can’t afford to bring about a nuclear holocaust,” insisted Congresswoman Patricia Morran of Kansas, another Four Corners State.
“There’s a holocaust coming alright. But it won’t be a nuclear one. It’ll involve something more basic. The weather.”
“The weather? Ready have you lost what little mind you have left?”
Ready smiled at his colleagues and then popped open the black leather briefcase that had sat undisturbed on the table in front of him. He pulled out a series of brown manila envelopes and tossed one to each of the men and women in the room.
“Ladies and Gentlemen you have in your hands the briefing notes of a very special Black Ops mission going on right now that was authorized by President Khamis himself. We have men in the field hunting the wife of Youssef bin Caneer, the man behind the invasion of America. But I tell you this. Caneer’s plans did not stop there. It seems that multi-billionaire son of bitch had some bastard scientists build him a weather machine and his wife, Ruyah Caneer, has been using the damn thing to cause havoc around the planet.”
“Is his true?”
Ready’s one word answer was, “yes.”
There was a rush of talking as everyone wanted to ask questions and put forth their opinions.
“Quiet. One at a time. We’ll all get our say,” Ready shouted.
“This is sheer lunacy,” stated Dingus.
“I assure you it’s not. It’s a bonafide fact that America has been using what the military refers to as weather modification since the sixties. Youssef Caneer only took it a step further. And as I said, the hunt for bin Caneer’s wife, Ruyah, and the machine was authorized by President Khamis, himself. All we have to do is let the American public know what’s going on and let them decide whether or not they want Khamis, an Arab, like the man who invented this diabolical machine to have control of it. Ladies and Gentlemen, I assure you, that the American public will practically beg us to put forth a more trustworthy candidate. One who won’t turn that machine over to the enemy.”
“And exactly who are you proposing we put forth? You?” asked Sweetpea, or the Junior Congresswoman from Texas.
