On the heels of the Republican-controlled and -led U.S. House of Representatives passing a $1.1 trillion cromnibus spending bill, I thought I’d share an excerpt from my just-released crime-fiction mystery novel, The National Bet. Shown below, it’s guaranteed to make conservatives smile — even if it only takes place inside a fiction novel:
No longer willing to accept such political posturing and double-speak, Americans began calling for resignations and launching recall petitions.
Amidst news reports about ammunition and body armor sales going through the roof, the nation’s top elected officials began to sense the end was near, that the tipping point had finally arrived. And they were right.
On Tuesday, June 30, 2015, President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and leaders of both the House and Senate heard from members of Congress, state governors, and others from a wide array of academic, business and professional groups of a loose-knit coalition of people with long track records of supporting limited government. Their demands were clear: resign immediately or face criminal prosecution on a laundry list of charges, up to and including treason.
To find out what happens before and after these excerpts, order a copy of The National Bet.
