    The unholy tryst between Sun and Moon cast a blinding shadow on the Capitol. Its darkened length was a direct counterpoint to the longevity of the leader of the free world. The astral assignation was a harbinger of usurpation—thieves in the temple, intent on revising the historical record of the Federated States of Calitexas.

    As President Donald Clinton basked in the umbra of misbegotten miscreants, he mistook their loyalty for honor, their acquiescence for admiration. Unmindful of the incipient disaster, he toasted his cronies with round after round of liquid courage.

    No bullet would ever be as deadly as the convoluted conspiracy that incubated in the corrupted corridors of power.

    “Honour among thieves. What’s in a name?” So The Leader became The President. Vowing loyalty to him, as was borne out in the historical records, ensured longevity, for such as it was worth. Faux admiration that was projected as veneration, gained a bootlicker further Brownie Points. Not one of his sycophants had the courage to be absent from a smoke-and-mirrors, ersatz cloak-and-dagger assignation for so-called Core Trailblazers, which were, in actuality, old-school spying units.
