Obamica - The Apocalypse starts in America- Land of the Protected, Home of the Entitled - The Beginning of the End.

Chapter one in the ongoing fictional account of America's decent into Hell under the current administration.

Nightmare of Reality

It’s so dark here, underground. The only light is the glow from this machine I can’t seem to tear myself away from. The silence is all that exists but for the soft hum of my dear computer which has become my eyes and ears, my lifeline. I wonder if it is what is keeping me sane. I reach for the cold coffee at my side out of habit, a rote, autonomic gesture. The jet fuel sludge is the only thing keeping me up other than sheer terror. I have lost track of how many days it has been. Do I even remember what sleep is?

It’s been about six or seven weeks since the world went to hell. It started in October 2012. War was declared on Iran. The President was lauded as our savior when he somehow managed to detect and destroy the nuclear missiles that had been fired on what was then called America while they were still over the ocean. He was immediately named our savior. Within days the country was renamed Obamica. He was declared Emperor by Congress, a title and position granted for life. Martial law was declared that night to ensure the ongoing safety of our nation. Millions of what used to be Americans wept in gratitude. Others wept for the death of a once great nation while they hid in their homes. Almost in the blink of an eye things changed.

The next week the Emperor declared all people in Obamica must receive a bar code for their own safety. Money in a tangible form would no longer be needed. The bar code would ensure no one was robbed or mugged and make our nation safe from within while he continued to make us safe from enemies abroad. The people were graciously given thirty days. The bar code would be given freely to everyone at any local bank, police station, hospital or school. All locally approved sites were quickly overrun as people in droves lined up smiling to get the stamp of safety. Processing centers began to open up in every city and town using abandoned buildings. They were staffed by men in long black robes. At the end of the thirty day grace period cash would be outlawed. Anyone after that time who did not display the bar code upon request would be immediately taken into police custody. Upon being taken, said persons had 24 hours to decide to accept the gift of safety or be executed as an enemy of peace.

America had been known as the land of the free, the home of the brave. Now, it was declared to be the land of the protected, for he would protect us all. It was the home of the entitled, for we were all entitled to his protection, if we were loyal.


My hand is trembling as I move the mouse to click the link. Every second or so my mind sends up another desperate plea to God to please bring him back alive. I tell myself to stop. God knows what I want, how scared I am. God will follow his plan as is right but I’m still terrified. The ongoing mantra of "just have faith" is not helping, though I know I should. This underground bunker that we thought might offer some protection now feels like my coffin slowly shrinking in on me. I try to shake off the crazy and focus. What else is there for me to do?

The screen glows…

Featured story: Texas has been subdued.

The march toward unification is underway. Have faith in our Emperor. He will save us.

Over half of Texas was virtually wiped off the face of the map today. Since our Emperor and sovereign leader gave us martial law to protect us all, there have been uprisings and violence in every major city across Obamica. Things have gotten worse. Factions of terrorist and religious fanatics continue to wage guerrilla warfare through any means they can contrive. Our beloved Emperor promised we, the people, that he will restore law and order. Today marked the spearhead into the heart of the uprising against peace. Together we stand. Praise be to our savior, the Emperor.

All will be well.

My stomach turns. Not being able to read anymore I hit a new tab and go to Hubpages. Somehow, the remaining living members of the Hubteam have managed to keep it going. Most of the old Hubs remain. The new ones are slim compared to what once was found daily. There are no new hubs in the Politics and Social Issues headings that do not support the Emperor. I don’t know how they are doing it, but the Hubteam are uploading daily a new series entitled simply “The Butcher’s Bill”. I can’t help but smile sadly seeing they give credit to the original author of the phrase and even mention it was used in the movie the “And The Band Played On.” In the face of the apocalypse someone is still concerned about the rules. A manic giggle escapes my lips and I shudder recognizing the sound of madness coming from myself.

Focus woman, focus.

Today

Dear hubbers,

If you have not heard, Texas is toast. We lost the following today. This list includes the ones we know of. Who knows how many more of our family are gone? As you know, we get some of our information from the sketchy news being released from the capitol through the only remaining news network, BHO Network News, but we continue to rely on your communications for the bulk of our information.

Source

Wayne Brown

Wayne was a truly talented, loyal, American who fought for his country in Vietnam. He was killed today by the forces of the Emperor. He had been identified on the FBI’s most wanted list as an “instigator of unrest.” When Protection troopers went through Texas today burning everything in their path, a special unit was dispatched to take him alive at all cost. The Emperor issued a decree that all “instigators of unrest” in Texas be rounded up for public execution yesterday.

Wayne Brown must have seen them coming. As the troopers advanced upon his ranch home explosions rocked the earth killing 35 troopers and injuring 17. After the third explosion a missile was dropped on his home killing him and his family.

Wayne wrote vivid poems, and indepth, to the point political and social commentaries. He exemplified the best of what HubPages has to offer.

Wayne will be sorely missed. His words will live on as long as we can keep the site up. We love you, Wayne.

Wesman Todd Shaw

Todd was one of our most beloved conspiracy theorist that spoke out not only against the government but also alerted us to the deeds of large corporations. His ongoing expose articles on Monsanto’s monopoly and corruption of the food supply are legendary. Todd was on the list of “instigators of unrest” but BHO news reported this afternoon that he was found already deceased when storm troopers entered his modest Texas home. The report stated his father was shot for trying to hold onto the body. The entire property was seen aflame on the report.

Todd was known for his dedication to revealing the truth to us all, for being a champion of the common man and for always standing up for what he believed in.

Todd, we will miss you. Your words will live on as long as we can keep the site up. We love you, Todd.

Kimberly Hollyness

Dear, sweet, Kimberly died today on the front lawn of her native TX home. Protection troopers surrounded her. It was reported they were there to escort her to a processing center to receive the mandatory barcode we are all required to have. The brief video clip showed her look up to the sky and smile as she mouthed the words “I‘m coming home, Father.” She fell gracefully to the ground. The report stated she passed of an acute myocardium infarction. She looked so peaceful.

Kimberly was the recipient of a Hub Nugget award and was a published poet. She was a creative, kind soul who we were blessed to have known.


Her spirit will live on as long as we can keep her words here. She will be missed. We love you, Kimberly.

Poetvix

Poetvix was an amateur poet. She wrote a few controversial hubs on politically correct ideology but was most known here for her graphic epic poems.

Protection troopers surrounded her Texas home today. As they were approaching from all sides a massive explosion destroyed her home leaving the surrounding countryside barren for fifty feet in every direction. The BHO News Network stated, “No bodies were recovered but both she and her husband are assumed dead.” The report went on to label them both “...cowards who would rather take their own lives than allow Obamica justice through their public executions. Their combined selfish acts cost the lives of two Protection Troopers who were fatally wounded from flying debris.”

Poetvix will be missed by her small following. Her words will remain as long as we can keep the site up. We love you, Poetvix.

Jim Bryan

Jim was a hubber possessing intelligence, range and wit. His political Hubs were scathing and well documented. His series of zombie hubs were dearly loved by many of us. He was a loyal countryman who served America with valor and distinction.

The BHO News Network showed a brief clip of him facing off over ten Protection Troopers in Austin this morning as he and a small band of men and women attempted to infiltrate the state capitol. He was fatally shot in the back. He was the last of the “instigator band” at that time. The entire incident lasted just under twenty minutes. Four troopers were killed and two wounded.

Jim will be missed. His words and his spirit will live on as long as we can keep going. We love you, Jim.

There are many, many more obituaries, so many that they are now grouped by state.

I can’t read anymore. I should be crying. I should be mourning for all the people lost, the good people. I can’t. Mourning and tears are just not there. The only thing in me is terror he won’t make it. I see him in my mind and try to envision a white light protecting him. I try so hard I think my head will split but all I can see is some damn trooper shooting him. I know they won’t take him alive. He would never allow that.

Source

Even underground I can hear the jets screeching overhead. I can smell the stench of the burning bodies. I know I must be imagining that. There’s no way the smell from the city could reach this far and underground. Could it? God please, please bring him back to me.

Maybe some of them made it. A tiny flicker of hope dares to spark in my heart. If we could fake our deaths maybe they could too. Maybe Wayne and his family somehow got out before the bomb fell. He was smart. He knew how to fight. He had been in a war. Dare I hope the news was wrong? After all, everything they say is deception.

I quickly type the URL into the field and wait for the network feed to load. Over and over I watch the gruesome scene. “No bodies were recovered.” He could have made it! He could!


Source


Where is that man? Oh God please bring him back to me. Please! He’s a day late. He’s always late, damn him! Oh God, you know I don’t mean that. I’m sorry. Please watch over him.


The next clip automatically loads. The date indicates it's a few weeks old, but I have not seen it before. Somehow the scene unfolding on the screen pulls me out of myself. I soon wish it had not. I see a classroom with about fifty small children, quietly sitting. Small children, quiet and still. The teacher in me kicks in and I wonder what the hell is wrong with them? What are they so afraid of? Children that age are never all quiet and still at the same time unless something major has their attention.

The Czar of the Department of Education stands before them. He smiles upon them and congratulates them on being the first in their state to receive the mandatory barcode now embedded in their right hands.

Jimi Hendrix - "Star Spangled Banner"


I can’t breathe. There’s no air. I know what they don’t. They are lost. My mind seizes on the same old question. How could this have happened? In just weeks the world has gone to hell.

"Children, God, children!" I scream aloud. Now the tears come.

Oh, dear God, please, please bring him home.

Please, do not be offended.

This is fiction. This is not a wish but rather, a nightmare. I read somewhere, once, a long time ago, that one of my favorite authors, Stephen King, wrote of things that he was afraid of. I got the impression it was like a purging process.


To all of my fellow hubbers listed in the fictitious obituaries,

Please do not take offense. I love your work and think of you all as online friends. I mean no disrespect or harm. This is just fiction and you have become characters. If you are offended, I will remove your name. Just let me know in comments or email. Again, I value you all greatly and want nothing but God’s blessing for you.

This does not do that. This allows for the silencing of us all at anytime. Anyone can suspect anything. That does not make what is suspect true. For that matter, is it such a strecth to think they can, and will "suspect" anyone that speaks out against anything they do?


A nation of concentration camps?

Left and Right voted on this. Both sides voted it in.

This can not be allowed to stand. NDAA gives absolute power by law. It gives authority to what is inherently wrong. I urge you, in the strongest manner possible, for the sake of yourselves and anyone you care about, flood the hill with petitions, calls, letters, emails, calls for FREEDOM.

America must be protected at all costs. NDAA does not do that. It shreds the last remaining vestiges of liberty. It makes a mockery of the Constitution. It makes us no more than slaves chained by fear. If we, if you, don't speak up NOW, your children will never be able to as adults... If they live that long.

Fiction or Vision

Many of us fear for the future of our nation. How bad do you think it will be if he stays in office?

  • It will be the America I always dreamed of and it's about time!
  • Not too much worse than it is now.
  • I can't think about that. I'm out of pain medication.

Debbie ~ I have not been reading it lately. I grew up on it. I need to re read it that's for sure. I come from a very large extended family with Southern Baptist uncle preachers on one side and Pentecostal on the other. I think it's been ingrained. I certainly hope so.

Thank you for reading and for your kind words. God bless you and may God bless us all.

Again, Poetvix, I didn't vote. Unfortunately, your fiction is not pure fiction. It has happened in the world before and it will happen again. There's always those who "go with the flow" and those who don't. Again, unfortunately, those who went "with the flow" are on the side of the POWER, and things change for a long, long, time. I do think about what you have had the courage to say. I was expecting though, that you would be the one on the computer in your story, rather than one of those getting blown up. Again, unfortunately, your fiction is "NOT" pure fiction. Good job!

SubRon7 ~ Sadly, I know it's possible, at this point, probable. Oh, and I am the one sitting on the computer. Things are not always as they seem. Yes, my home was destroyed... but remember... no bodies found. As you know, you can't trust the news reports. But stay tuned, there is more to come.

Thank you very, very much for reading and commenting. I always love it when you drop by.

I hope my fiction remains purely such but at this point in history, I kind of doubt it. God bless you and happiest of hubbing for you!

Just my luck, this will happen right when I'm visiting family in Texas!

But seriously, I like your sobering vision.

Another purpose for something like this, besides purging one's personal demons, is to shine a light on a potential future so that we can "know" it and thus be free of it. The Buddhists referred to this as "as-it-isness." Yehoshua of Nazareth merely called it "knowing truth."

Somehow, though, I suspect that prophecy is being fulfilled by this kind of nightmare -- not to scare the willies out of us, which likely it will anyway, but to prepare us for the opportunity to reawaken spiritually to our Lord and Father.

God bless us all and have mercy on us and our loved ones.

...wow what a brave, bold and chilling write - it even moved the normally apolitical epi-man - I think I need to have a walk and some fresh air after reading this one - it's really quite a sensational and provocative presentation of words and images - and that's what great art should do - it moves us and touches us and challenges us and makes us think and feel - see you on Facebook with this landmark hub my friend - and now for that walk - I got less than an hour myself before darkness kicks in here at 5:30pm

Dear Poet ~ Very dramatic, quite an imagination, flare for words and development of storyline. You obviously know how to draw people in to the story with a mix of facts, fiction and personal identities of people we all know and read their works. Thus, enhancing the story, plot with the characters.

Voted awesome and up. This puts people on the edge of their seat and hopefully rocks the boat. Blessings, Debby

P.S. I'm not sure it makes a difference which party runs the White House.

I would like to argue with you about the it doesn't matter which party runs the hill part. I can but I won't for I know both are wrought with corruption through and through. I will be voting Republican in hopes of them getting a handle on the debt crisis. Further, I hold out hope they will repeal some of the legislation that crushes freedom but to be honest it's a tiny hope. They voted for it too. A girl's got to try I guess.

God bless you and keep you always. You truly are kind.

you need to read revelations again. the christians will all be taken up in the rapture BEFORE anyone is required to get the mark of the beast.

obama, a christian, makes an unlikely anti-christ.

poetvix 4 years ago from Gone from Texas but still in the south. Surrounded by God's country. Author

Cathylyn99 ~ Thanks for the read and the comment. I never said he was. I was under the impression he was of a different faith. This is fiction and while it may bring up parts of Revelations, the rapture you speak of is highly debated in theological circles as are specifics in regards to the timeline of events. Before the antichrist can assume full power the wars must come. Further, the antichrist is purported to be the great deceiver by bringing about peace after war. Nowhere in this story has it been implied that Obama has brought about peace but merely stopped some bombs from landing.

I thank you again for your time and comment. God bless you.

@cathylynn99 - that's NOT in Revelations. It's also merely "interpretation" as to what was meant in Paul's scripture in THESSALONIANS!

Also of note, claiming to be a Christian has never once made someone a Christian.

In fact, we can test this theory - just watch:

Well, I think it was Second Thessalonians.......


poetvix profile image

poetvix 4 years ago from Gone from Texas but still in the south. Surrounded by God's country. Author

Todd ~ (and cathylyn99) Hi there Todd :). I just did a little reading myself. Revelations short note version goes something like…Chapter five opening of the seals, obvious start of the bad, onward to tribulation and beast, onward to horror and anti-Christ onward to chapter 19 Christ returns for his church onward to 20 where he casts the dragon into the pit for a thousand years.

Some argue Zechariah 14:12 as further evidence for the rapture. Having just read it I don't agree though it does indicate Christ taking his church and the entire chapter is hard to understand but to me indicates this comes after great tribulation.

I have yet to hit Thessalonians. As you know, none of them are what could be termed easy reads.

I did find this site somewhat helpful to anyone that wants to get a quick ref. where to start looking...

http://www.logosapostolic.org/bible_study/RP355-Po...

Sorry about the long URL.

To me evidence of Christ coming for his church is irrefutable. As to whether or not that is what some refer to as the rapture is another discussion altogether. The majority of what I have read would indicate the tribulation comes first.

I do thank you for contributing and I have no doubt upon reading Thessalonians not only will I find some evidence of his return for his church but will find many things of other great import.

Bless you.

SIDE NOTE to anyone interested - I find it interesting, for lack of a better word, that the Bible itself has been changed so many times by man though man was most clearly told not to do so. For example, just the translations alone would make a truly word for word re-copy virtually impossible. I do believe they went something as follows, but please feel free to correct my memory… Arabic to Greek to Latin to Old English to Modern English and every other language known. Further of interest is the fact that a very old English King, one of the Edward’s, I don’t remember which, actually ordered some of the dates changed which has according to some scholars changed all of our dates since.

Having stated the above, it only makes sense to me that we must read said document with a heart open to hearing the spirit of it and not quibble over details such as what comes first when the gist is pick a side and take a stand.

Getting off my soap box now ;). God bless us all.

On the one hand, this is totally compelling and would definitely make an "I can't put this down book." On the other hand, if there is a shred of prophetic vision in it, it's pretty scary.

This is an excellent read and you should be proud of it. It reminds me of Warday by Whitley Strieber but on a much more personal level. It's hard to put your mind around nuclear Armageddon; but it is becoming easier each day to envision what will happen if something drastic doesn't change in American politics.

Here's a tip my first book editor gave me - a book is just series of articles connected with bridging text:) Just keep adding to your saga and before you know it, you will have your book. Voted up, interesting...and so forth.

1st things 1st....you have my permission to use my name & avatar (make sure she's CUTE!).

I was raised by parents of a particlular religion. It did not teach nor preach from the BIBLE, ITSELF. Therefore, I was brain washed with this church's INTERPRETATIONS (basically, HOG-wash, come to learn) In any event, I'm a "bits & pieces" of the Bible sort of Christian, since I took it upon myself later in life to actually become aware of some TRUTH. Having said this, what I really want to do is share with you the name of a book I purchased about 10 years ago from a Christian Book/Gift store. It's a 256-pg. paperback sharing the thoughts of Christian leaders: Charled Swindoll, Billy Graham, Stanley Ellisen, J.Dwight Pentecost, John F. Walvoord, Tim LaHaye, David Jeremiah, Charles C. Ryrie, Ronald Allen, & Joseph M. Stowell....compiled by John Van Diest.....Multnomah Publishers, Inc. P.O.Box 1720 Sisters, Oregon 97759. Title: "10 Reasons Why Jesus is Coming Soon." This has turned out to be one of my most treasured books. Peace.........

Donna ~ You are so kind. I thank you for reading and being so generous in your comments. I'm laughing at the idea of me actually writing a book for my technical skills are somewhat poor, but I'm working on it. Thanks bunches for the encouragement though, really. It means al lot.

I hope there is not a shred of prophetic vision in this! I do think it touches on some serious issues that are not going away any time soon.

God bless and keep you and your family always and happy hubbing.

fpherj48 ~ Thank you so much for taking the reading and leaving such a cool comment. I love LaHaye; the Left Behind Series is one of my all time favorites in what I like to term Apocalyptic Christian fiction. Thanks bunches for the book lead. I was wading through scripture last night, see above, and there are so many interpretations out there it's just mind boggling. I never cease to be amazed at how many people can interpret the exact same scripture to mean so many different things. Further, there are many versions of the Christian Bible a foot. If you compare diligently, you will find multiple discrepancies between them. It's a wonder any of us figure out anything. Thanks again. God bless you and happy hubbing. (Of course you're avatar will be cute!)

Wow! Your imagination is wide in spectrum as I have always said. Unfortunately a lot of this stuff is very real in some form or other. If it was not for the teachings of History I would not, could not think this even remotely possible. Sadly I cannot say I was offended as everything you say is Very Possible. Keep it up Vix!!!! Sincerely, Matt.

Inky! It's so good to see you. Major congrads to you on the book deal.

Thank you so much for your taking the time to read and comment. God bless you Matt. You are a kind, sensitive soul with the heart of a poet and the intelligence of a super computer on steroids. I know God has big things in store for you. This is only the beginning.

Frank ~ Thank you for coming back. Thanks even more for your oh so kind comment. It means a lot that someone likes to read what I write. I spend all day just trying to get kids to listen to what I say. I'm neither good nor great really, though I want to be and will continue striving towards that end. In all honesty, I'm worried. I'm concerned about where we are headed. It doesn't look like somewhere I want to visit much less be stuck in. God bless you!

Hi Poetvix

Brilliant and scary to think what if this fiction became a reality.

I am on to the next chapter.

Voted up and away!

Have a good weekend.

I'm going to miss you and WB and WTS. God rest your weary souls. Let us pray that Jesus comes back soon. Then every knee shall bow.

James A Watkins - Amen. He will. But don't count anyone down and out just yet... The media twists things. They deceive and no bodies were recovered in all but two incidents. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. God bless you!
