The Great Pause Week 10: President Jill Stein

Late in the afternoon on January 24, after Chinese President Xi Jinping closed down 15 cities, locking 60 million people into their homes, and ordered the building of entire new hospitals, US President Jill Stein, M.D. convened an emergency meeting in the Cabinet Room at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Attending were her National Security Advisor Susan Rice, the Director of National Intelligence, the Attorney General, the Surgeon General, the Director of the CDC, the Administrator of FEMA, and secretaries of State, Defense, Treasury, Commerce, HHS, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs. Also invited but not attending were the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader, both of whom were boycotting the White House.

Like your recent tale of returning to a post-pandemic, and apparently more or less post-collapse US, this hints at more than it tells, though I can well imagine that a Green elected President without benefit of a sizeable Green influx into Congress would be dealing with boycotts and an impeachment attempt. However, I'd like to think that Medea Benjamin, and not a warmongering imperialist like Ms. Rice, would be Dr. Stein's National Security Advisor. :-)

Here's Ray McGovern on Susan Rice
