Election 2048

Election Coverage 2048 - Al-CNN

As the election of 2048 approaches, the candidates from both parties continue to exchange strong views on the issues that affect the lives of Americans. The Party of Democracy and Justice (Hezb-Al-Dimukratie-Wa'al Adalah) continues to maintain that the election will come down to social justice issues.

“With 34 percent unemployment and the price of goat so far out of range of most working families that they have been forced to switch to chicken, it is time that our opponents stopped dodging the issues and took a serious look at the economic consequences of their policies,” Bashar Mohammed Hussein Al-Hamdani, said during a campaign stop at a HalalBurger in Peoria, Illinois.

However the ruling Freedom and Religion Party (Hezb Al-Hurriyah Wa'al Allah) denounced this as class warfare. Still preoccupied with the ongoing occupation of the Netherlands and Greece, the party has taken criticism for ignoring the economic problems of the United States while being preoccupied with waging foreign wars in the name of Islam.

Nevertheless President Mohammed Al-Thani, fresh off a pilgrimage from Mecca, vigorously defended his record while conducting a photo op at a San Diego Madrassa. “The Freedom and Religion Party believes in creating opportunities, rather than offering hand outs. Our subjugation of infidel nations has opened up new territories to be dominated by the believers and our vigorous drive for national morality has revived the family unit as an economic force. Our program of heavily fining women who go out with their naked hair exposed and raising the Jizya tax on the People of the Book has also raised billions of dollars that will go toward repaying the nation 93 trillion dollar debt.”

The high Jizya tax has provoked outrage in some parts of the United States, but the continuing decline of the nation’s non-Muslim population has made the Christian vote much less of a factor in the election. Hamdani has promised to cut the Jizya tax by 20 percent if elected, but it is unclear whether conservative elements in his own party will allow him to do it. National surveys show that since making the proposal, Hamdani’s ratings have gone down 9 points in Illinois and 14 points in California.

President Al-Thani’s advisors view the 2 million conversions to Islam since the Jizya tax was tripled as a major benefit to the party which lost its Christian support during the Great Transition. Since then the Freedom and Justice Party has picked up a Christian and Jewish bloc vote, but the value of that bloc has not held up well over the last two elections.

Christian rights activists attribute the decline of American Christians to the Jizya tax which has made it impossible for many Christian families to earn a living. They also blame the bloody 2045 Riots which marked the end of the Christian presence in former strongholds such as Nashville and Cedar Rapids, as well as rumors about the kidnapping and forced conversion of Christian girls. 

However popular talk show host and pundit, Abdul Greene countered that the decrease was best explained by the large scale immigration of Christians out of the country. “The Christians are too bigoted to live in the same country with us, just like their parents and grandparents. If they can’t control the country, they refuse to live here and accept our laws.”

Christian rights activists have accused Greene of playing a major role in stirring up the 2045 Riots which torched Christian areas in major cities across the United States after a Christian man was accused of having an intimate encounter with a Muslim woman. Greene however insists that the Christians are the ones to blame. Greene's support of the Freedom and Religion Party has been controversial, but President Al-Thani has refused to disavow him.

The latest round of attacks by Greek guerrillas on liberation forces in Athens led to smaller attacks on Christian businesses in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles last month. They also accentuated the debate over the continuing occupation of Greece which began in 2031 when the United States government intervened to protect the territorial claims of the Turkish Republic of Cyprus. Much as in the Netherlands, the intervention to protect a Muslim community turned into a full blown occupation and a war against an insurgency that is believed to be backed and supplied by rogue states such as the breakaway Arctic Republic, the Federal Republic of Germany and the Zionist Entity.

The Freedom and Religion Party under President Al-Thani continues to take the position that American prosperity is closely linked to the welfare of the rest of the Muslim world. In the State of the Union address the president stated that, "We cannot repeat the folly of the Americans of the pagan period who believed that they could have material wealth without religion. Our prosperity comes from Allah and it is only by spreading the way of Allah and conducting our Jihad in the way of Allah on behalf of our endangered brothers and sisters in Europe and Asia that we will be deserving of Allah's bounty."

Hoping to exploit the widespread economic dissatisfaction, Hamdani, a former Wisconsin governor, has promised to withdraw troops from Greece within two years and the Netherlands within five years with the majority of remaining liberation forces being drawn from other Muslim countries. "We can best aid our fellow believers in the Muslim world by being a model of stability and a beacon of tolerance."

 Yusuf Al-Amiriki, a member of Hamdini's foreign policy defense team and a first generation convert descended from two American presidents, courted controversy with a proposal to set up a coalition government of Muslim and moderate Christian groups in the Netherlands. Such governments had been tried in Europe before during the 2030's, but invariably fell apart. Leading Senators from the Freedom and Justice Party accused Hamdani of selling out Muslim interests in order to court the Christian vote. Hamdani's spokeswoman, Aisha Zubedi, has refused to comment on the Amiriki proposal except to say that Hamdani was open to any solution that would restore peace to the people of the Netherlands and protect the rights of European Muslims.

Hamdani courted further controversy by appearing at the funeral of former President Bob Thompson. Thompson had served two terms and while his administration had worked hard on outreach to the Muslim world, he also engaged in the targeted murder of Muslim religious leaders and provided aid to the Zionist entity. For these reasons, President Al-Thani chose not to appear at his funeral even though President Thompson had been a member of the pre-transition Freedom and Religion Party, which was then known as the Republican Party.

Despite the official disapproval, Thompson was viewed positively by many in the Muslim community. Tens of millions of Pakistani-Americans remember how after the India-Pakistan war, the Thompson Administration generously opened its borders to victims of the nuclear fallout in Pakistan. Without that step it might have taken decades more before America achieved a Muslim majority.

During the beginning of his second term, Thompson became the first president to take the oath of office on both a Bible and a Koran declaring that he wanted to make no separation between the books of god. At the Thompson funeral, Hamdani appeared to promise that he would repeat that gesture, but his spokeswoman quickly disavowed any notion that he would ever take an oath on a text that was not the Koran.

"No American president has taken an oath on a bible in over a decade, all that the governor meant was that he would keep both Christians and Muslims in mind as the people of Allah when he takes his oath to protect and defend the Sharia," Aisha Zubedi said.

While the Democracy and Justice Party has often appealed to the poor, its missteps have raised concerns in traditional Muslim communities that Hamdani is going too far in pandering to non-Muslims. "Next thing you know he'll say we should let the Jews come back to America," Congressman Mohammed Mogabe declared. "If Hamdani wants votes out of Cleveland then he is going to show he will fight for us, not for the enemies of the prophets."

Hamdani has hurriedly scheduled an upcoming visit to the Ground Zero Mosque, but it may not be enough to improve his image in the eyes those who have accused him of flirting with apostasy. While the Mosque is a traditional stop for presidential candidates, Hamdani is unlikely to pay tribute to the souls of the 19 martyrs as Al-Thani did during the previous election.

Hoping to refocus attention on his economic program, Hamdani called for higher corporate taxes and accused some corporations of abusing Islamic banking, in particular Hibah payments, to avoid paying taxes. Such charges are not new, but particularly galling at a time when over a third of the country is out of work and tycoons like Ahmed Shalafi and Sheikh Johnson have used their connections with the Al-Thani government to become billionaires.

To counter Hamdani, Al-Thani's economic advisers have offered up a stimulus plan that raises the Jizya tax on infidels for the second time in a year and vowed to cut spending even further without affecting subsidies to Islamic schools or military preparedness for the Global Jihad. Though the election is still some time away, the Al-Thani campaign has also rolled out a series of ads targeting poor communities which accuse Hamdani of plotting with Jewish and Christian tycoons to subvert the Islamic system of finance through freemasonry and Communist class warfare tactics.

Adding further drama to the election is the possibility of a third party campaign. Andrew McMillan who has been running as an independent in elections for almost twenty years without appealing to anyone but the same racist groups who have been disavowed even by most Christians and Jews, but there is talk that McMillan's America Party might consider replacing the eccentric millionaire with sports star Ted March. As leading goalscorer who helped the United States win the 2042 World Cup, March is one of the most admired non-Muslims in the country. With him on the ticket, the America Party might be able to adopt a new moderate image that is no longer associated with bigotry and intolerance.

But frustrating his own party members, the septuagenarian McMillan appeared to an event commemorating the 2045 riots and gave a rousing speech which hit on many of the same old themes. "For thirty-six years I've been involved in politics and the only thing that I can tell you about politics is that it's all bunk. We weren't talking about the things that mattered thirty-six years ago and we aren't talking about them now."

Daniel, you have a gift for satire, even if it is scary satire. I hope to be dead by 2048.

I could see this scenario playing out in France, not in the U.S.

What happened to all the Latino immigrants? Why are the politicians speaking in English? Why are there democratic elections in the first place?

This is a fascinating bit of recent American History ... After all it shows how far a nation can go when it has escaped being about a people, or a culture. America has always been about the "Idea of America". Ideas are wonderfully free and adaptable and progressive. Even as recently as 2016 just 32 years ago we were threatened with all the evils of the old nation state concept. Even the vile racist concept of "Western Civilization" was respectable before the Common Core Education Reform Act of 2018 put all that behind us. Sure the Great Purges of the 20's were unpleasant. I still remember those pathetic old Christians mumbling and crossing themselves as they were led out to the field. And those Jews with all that wailing. I almost wanted to do something. But history and the" Destiny of the American Idea" cant be changed. The Liquidations were necessary if we were to go forward. All this could have been avoided if they had been more patriotic. Well it all worked out in the end and served to prove that the "Idea of America" still works.

Great article. I'll be 102 then so I doubt that I will be around, but as a Catholic I'll probably be in the Crusades before I reach that age.

At least there will still be elections.

Me too. But I am not sure we actually have that long before this comes true.

Anyone familiar with Spanish history knows the truth in this piece..
Actually Christian history gives us many examples of expansionist misadventure too.
Frankly, I think it could go either way, just change the names to common Spanish surnames.

If you haven't yet read "Prayers for the Assassin" and its sequels by Robert Ferrigno, you ought to... It's a thriller novel series based in the countries of the "Islamic Republic of America" and "The Bible Belt."

Meanwhile - clever piece but, the Arab and/or Muslim world will never be able to actually hold elections and gain power over anyone. They are; and will continue to be, far too busy killing each other to ever govern.
They will quite possibly nuke portions of planet Earth in their mad efforts at self immolation and thereby slaughter billions but, govern?
Not going to happen.

Naresh asked: "What happened to all the Latino immigrants? Why are the politicians speaking in English? Why are there democratic elections in the first place?" There was a bloody civil war, fought on the streets of San Antonio, Waco, and other Texas cities, between the Muslims and Catholic Mexicans. The Mexicans lost and converted to Islam, because the Muslims had already co-opted the U.S. military, although some Army and Marine units were wiped out because their LGBT brigades sort of fell down on the job (too busy primping and not patrolling). English is a second language; a sort of pidgin Arabic is the lingua franca. The "democratic elections" are of the same kind that used to be held in Soviet Russia and Red China, all for show.

If America turns out anything like your scenario, the Christians will have no place to go. That is, if freedom and individual rights collapse completely here, the rest of the world will follow in short order, and some kind of world wide slave state will be the inevitable result.

Satire or not - I'll be very dead for many, many years in 2048 and that's a good thing because who knows what's left of America and the world if anything.

Daniel, this is ridiculous -- I suggest you stick to reality and stay away from fiction. We need you to stay focused on exposing the deeds of the current administration and providing an accurate and truthful picture of the events. If you keep doing what you do best, the ridiculous fiction you wrote will never become a reality.

Kol Bo Gary said...

Simon, methinks you may have too much faith in what is the growing populous of this country. After all, look who has now been elected twice, protected by the media, and loved by all the fools/progressives among us. Let's revisit this after the 2014 and 2016 elections. We shall see.

Edward Cline said...

Simon: "We need you to stay focused on exposing the deeds of the current administration...." So, you need Daniel to keep doing all the heavy lifting and figuring things out for you? Suppose he doesn't? Suppose he goes on strike against what the current administration is doing to the country? And you are doing....what? Grant Daniel a quantum of catharsis. He's earned it. .

How selfish all those commenting that they shall be dead in 2048, the easy way out. Our children and grandchildren however shall hopefully be alive so we should install the moral defense in them to withstand the rise of this evil Daniel not completely satirically word-paints.

Mo said...

Sultan K - it's a grim glee you invoke in me

Edward C - Sparrowhawk is precious to me

Thanks to you both.

Edward Cline said...

MindRider: If one is in one's 70's, and if one doesn't expect socialized medicine to come up with some life extending cure for aging, and expect to die from violence wrought by Obama's foreign and domestic policies, what should one say? I'm already fighting the good fight of ideas. See my Rule of Reason columns, or read one of my novels. And, yes, it is selfish to not want to live in a destroyed country.

I'm thinking we should start investing in Americana type items, eg; old coke bottles, anything Norman Rockwell, Fisher Price McDonald's sets etc. and keep them for our ancestors who will think they are wondrous or foolish, depending on how well the erasure of our history works out.
Don't get me started on Broadway show tunes, or books by Salinger and Tom Wolfe, and many, many, more...

Amusing satire, but the goal of the caliphists is rule by a caliph, and the extermination of all those who won't bow down to him. There would be no elections, which are themselves regarded as apostasy.

Interesting that you chose 2048 - the very year Jews were redeemed from slavery in Egypt, and the year they received at Mount Sinai the engraved Ten Commandments - the essence of all Torah.

That you mindfully play with facts so distant temporally, is sad. It shows your complete lack of faith in God's ultimate plan - which has nothing to do with mundane politics and everything to do with Judaism, Jerusalem, a Jewish Kingdom as well as the sanctity of life.

Just a bunch of political rubbish instead of something positive, valuable, synergistic and constantly bubbling new spiritual insights of refreshing Judaism - as would be expressed were you wearing the lenses of holiness.

As you can see, when you grapple with dirt, you can become dirty. But, of course, the number of "hits" you get, or "likes", could be more important.

Van, I would like to thank you for your, in your own words, "positive, valuable, synergistic and constantly bubbling new spiritual insights" contribution.

Your comments reveals your deep faith and the lenses of holiness through which you look through everything. I couldn't even begin to comprehend your deep lenses of holiness myself. If I were as holy as you, perhaps I too would show up on people's blogs and tell them how dirty and unholy they are.

I appreciate your informed and expert assessment of my faith. Only through such positive contributions, especially in a public forum, will you help bring Moshiach.
