in 2002, various plagues begin striking the citizens of the New World Order who have been given the MOTB identification chip in their right hand or forehead. Fortunately, the universal health care provided by the NWO is able to contain or cure even the most virulent pathology, so that the citizens aren't troubled too heavily by the boils, frogs, fire rain and so forth that afflicts them. President and Anti-Christ Morris Appleby, sporting most of the afflictions himself, proudly visits a government clinic each time he must be treated, in order to reduce shame about these diseases/injuries, as well as promote the clinics.

Senator and President-elect Kerry was very tall. Steph felt like she was a little girl standing next to him as they watched Mike present the material they had brought with them. When Mike was done, the senator said, “We need to get this into some national broadcast.” He turned to an aide and told her, “See what you can do. We still have those contacts at CBS, right?”
“Yes, sir,” she told him, scooping up the disks and tape from Mike. “I'll get him on the cell and see if they can start cutting into the emergency broadcasts.”
“Excellent,” Kerry said, turning back to Steph and Mike. “It's amazing that you were able to get all this together, and then get it to us. Thank you.”
“Do you think you'll be able to help our friends in Crawford?” Steph looked up into the tired face of the older man, and he looked around at his command personnel in the tent.
He asked one of the military men standing around, “Can we feasibly make a move on Crawford?”
“Probably wouldn't be a bad idea,” a man wearing colonel's markings said. “We can finally give those reporters with us something to film. Showing Bush's ranch still standing might not be bad propaganda.”
“How quickly can we get there?”
“Let me check.” He pulled a couple of other men over to a corner and spoke with them quietly.
Mike had been stealing glances at Kerry the entire time they had been brought into his presence, and finally asked the question that had obviously been gnawing at him. “How do we know you're the real Senator Kerry? I mean, I found an expert to identify the Bush double; do I need to find one to do the same to you?”
Several people looked awkwardly away from the Senator and the conspiracy nut. Steph smiled and shrugged when Senator Kerry looked questioningly at her. After a moment in which he was obviously thinking of a careful way to say it, he replied, “I don't have a body double, I'm afraid. I'm one of a kind.”
That didn't satisfy Mike. He narrowed his eyes and took a good look at Kerry, then said, “I'll be keeping an eye on you.”
Kerry decided to ignore that, and turned to Steph. “It's going to be unsafe for you and your children until we can take down the coup leaders. If you'd like, we can send you back to New Mexico with an escort.”
Mike's eyes lit up. “Can we go to Roswell?”
Steph could see the massive effort that the senator exerted not to roll his eyes. “Of course. I'll get some people to organize your trip.”
“Thank you, sir,” Steph said, shaking his hand. “I just hope this'll all be over soon.”
“We all do, Mrs. Morris.” The colonel returned to his side and Kerry looked at the clipboard that was handed to him.
“If we send a small team, they can be there by lunch,” the colonel told him. “If you want a large force, it'll be there tomorrow.”
“Quicker's probably better,” Steph spoke up. “Our friends might need help.”
The senator nodded. “Send the small team, but make sure they have one of the reporters with them, and document everything.” He looked at Steph's hopeful face, and added, “Tell them that speed is of the essence.”
“Yes, sir,” the colonel said, taking his clipboard back and walking off to organize the mission.
Mike, having barely contained himself during that exchange, broke in with, “Can we go to Roswell, now?”
