Lieutenant General Jason John Bardos’ open dispatch to the U.S. Congress

Excerpted from the forthcoming novel “Alas Omega”

I direct this open dispatch to the Senate majority leader and Speaker of the House of the U.S. Congress and all of your members and constituents, also to all those who have been chosen by this people to govern and manage the affairs of this nation — to be dispersed to your collective bodies, whether in Washington DC or elsewhere.

You were elected by the constituents in each of your various districts, regions, and states to manage the affairs of the people of the United States. Why have you not performed your duties to the people and this country?

I remind you of the following words; written when this country was founded. “We have reached the Course of human events, when it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” I do the same now for the Patriots of this nation to fight the Liberal Fascists at our head. Except you begin immediately to fairly and legally manage the affairs of this people and support our armies against those invading this nation, I will march on Washington, gathering all who will join me on the way and then, we shall remove you from office!

Article 1, Section 10 of the constitution states that no title of nobility shall be granted, but that is what you have done for yourselves — appointed yourselves as nobles over this people, in this regard, you are fascists. You have broken the laws you swore an oath to uphold. Therefore, I have somewhat to say unto you by way of condemnation and also appeal. You yourselves know that you have been appointed to manage the affairs of this people, to see to it that the people are supported in their search for life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, and equal treatment under the law. How is it that you can allow the release of criminals from jail who straightway commit new, heinous crimes while locking up those who do not your bidding?

The people of this country have been patient with you for much longer than they should and in return, you continue to violate the law. In direct violation by your governing actions you have violated the 13th Amendment by keeping the populace of the inner cities in slavery, having removed them from one location and placing them in economic bondage in another for decade upon decade and placing the majority of the rest of the populace into involuntary servitude through your over regulations, exorbitant taxes, arrogance, narcissism, and evil designs to maintain power over a people who duly elected you. I remind you that you work for the people, the people do not work for you! As well, you have subjugated most of the remaining population into involuntary servitude, which is unconstitutional under the same amendment. Yet, if this were all the people were enduring, we would not grumble nor complain.

All men and women are created equal and endowed with unalienable rights by their Creator, which is life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but you have removed these rights and have removed belief in the creator as well. Great has been your neglect towards us. Do you think it is unnoticed by the people that those we elect who are paid an annual salary of $174,000 and gain millions in wealth during his or her term in office? And do you suppose the we do not know that most, but not all, are stealing this from the people who pay taxes and whom you are supposed to represent hiding it by passing continuing resolutions rather than congressional budgets?

Now, we the people desire to know the cause of this exceedingly great neglect; we desire to know the cause of your thoughtless state. Is it only due to your arrogance and narcissistic nature or, is it because you care nothing about the people and the laws you are supposed to uphold and obey?

Can you think to sit upon your thrones, because that is how you treat your State chairs, in a state of thoughtless apathy, while our enemies are spreading the work of death around you? Yes, while they are murdering thousands of our people from the combined forces of invasion from the south and west, supposing it will just go away?

The people have looked to you for protection, for hope, and for change, but you have subjugated them for your lusts and brought misery and despair. The money you have given to China and the big corporations could have raised our cities out of poverty and hopelessness, but you have and continue to think only of yourselves. Beware, your time is near an end!

You have withheld provisions from the people you are challenged to govern throughout your reign, both at home and abroad. Thousands have perished to keep the nation free while your intent is to force it into a dictatorship or fascist state for your personal gain and control. The neglect shown by you, the government, to the people of the nation is condemnable.

As a group you should be loved by the people, but your actions make you despised. How can you think to give away the livelihood of the country to our enemies while you push those who elected you to do their bidding into greater unemployment, hopelessness, and growing poverty. You should have stirred yourselves more diligently for the welfare of this people, but you have not. Thus, the blood of thousands who have died while you have been in office and the millions that you supposedly represent now come upon your heads; their sufferings will no longer remain silent, but shall chase you into a sleepless state night after night as you await the judgement you will receive at their hands.

Behold, do you believe that you can sit upon your thrones, and because of the exceeding goodness of God and the belief of the majority of those in this country that you could do nothing and that he will deliver you? That you can continue to hide behind the corrupt laws you have passed to protect yourselves? If you have supposed this, you have supposed in vain.

It is as if you believe that those who have died for the country and the rapidly growing number of those that are now plunged into despair and involuntary servitude is due to their slothfulness. In fact, it is because of you and your wickedness, not theirs. You have become so vain and arrogant that you believe everything is about you; it is not, and you stand condemned by the people and by God.  

It is often said that the Lord suffer the righteous to be slain that his justice and judgment may come upon the wicked; therefore you need not suppose that the righteous are lost because they are slain or are in dire straits, barely able to survive; but behold, the wrath of all is even now beginning to boil over and directed toward you; you will not escape that wrath if you do not perform your sworn oath and duties. Your wickedness has been more than sufficient that you can now be judged by the people.

I say unto you in earnestness, that except you change, the judgements of God and the wrath of this people will come upon you quickly because of the slothfulness of you, our government, and your exceedingly great neglect towards the people.

It has been said that to kill the snake, which is considered wicked and perverse, the head should be removed, and the body will die. Now, that head is rotten and a disease has infected the country due to the evil nature of the head, the leaders, you! For were it not for the wickedness which first began at our head, we could have withstood our enemies; they could have gained no power over us. We could have thwarted the attacks now upon our soil.

Had it not been for the armed national civil war, the second great rebellion beginning in Chicago, which broke out among ourselves because of the liberal fascists at our head, who have caused so much bloodshed among us, we could have beaten back the enemy. But due to your neglect at every juncture, while contending with ourselves instead of uniting our strength as we have always done, we are near collapse. Because of the desire for power and authority of the liberal fascists in our government; had they been true to the cause of our freedom, and united with us, and warred with us against our enemies, we would have already been victorious. Instead these leaders and followers have taken up arms against us, which has been the cause of so much bloodshed in our awful civil war and has left the nation in an dreadful state, teetering on the brink of defeat. If we had gone against our invading enemies in the strength of the Lord and morality and for our lands and country, we would have dispersed them at once.

But behold, our enemies are coming swiftly upon us, taking possession of our country; they are murdering our people with the tank, plane, and rockets and subjugating those parts of the country we cannot hold with an iron rule. This has happened because of your lust for power, authority, and control thus, take care that your end not follow swiftly!

Your lust for authority over the people has caused you to become traitors to your country for which there is only one punishment. Because you are surrounded by security your thoughts are to yourselves and your lusts while you have taken no thought to strengthen our armies against those who invade our country.

You have forgotten the many times we have been delivered from our enemies because of those that have willingly died before us to keep our country free, but you will be egregiously reminded in due course. There will be nowhere that you can hide.  

Will you remain sitting in idleness and indecision while you are surrounded with tens of thousands of your followers who do also sit in idleness, refusing to take up arms against our enemies, while there are thousands in our armies who are falling in battle, wounded and bleeding, and all of this because of you?

It is said that the inner vessel should be cleansed first, and it shall shortly be carried out.

Except you change and do the will of the people and support us in the struggle to keep this country free, it is expedient that we struggle no more with the invaders until we have first cleansed our inward vessel — the great head of our government.

Except you grant my dispatch, and come out and show unto me a true spirit of freedom, and strive to strengthen and fortify our armies, with food and other logistical support, I will leave a part of my patriots to maintain this part of our nation then, I will speedily come to you, and if there be any among you that has a desire for freedom, even a spark of freedom remaining, behold I will stir up insurgency among you, until those liberal fascists who have desires to usurp power and authority shall become extinct.

I do not fear your power nor your authority, but it is my God and the people of this nation whom, I fear. I take up my arms to defend the cause of my country, and it is because of your iniquity that we have suffered so much loss.

Behold the time is now at hand, that except ye do bestir yourselves in the defense of your country, the blade of justice hangs over you and it shall fall upon you — the only outcome is death.

I await for assistance from you; If you do send aid for our relief, I will come to you, and remove you with extreme prejudice so that you can have no more power to impede the progress of this people in the cause of our freedom.

This nation was founded on the laws of God, whose laws you transgress, and you know that you are doing so. Therefore, except you change your ways at once, I and my armies will swiftly visit death upon you. I seek not for power, but to pull it down nor do I seek for honor of the world, but for the freedom and welfare of my country. Choose wisely! I close my dispatch.
