Web Exclusive: New World Order awards UFO bases to Peotone and Palatine (Fiction)

By Reporter X

At a press conference in Joliet, The New World Order announced that it will build UFO Bases in Peotone and Palatine.  Both bases are expected to compete with Bolingbrook’s Clow UFO Base, which has been controlled by the Illuminati since 2016.

“Will County may never get a major airport,” said County Board Speaker Jim Moustis, “But we are getting a new UFO base.  I think we’ll be the only county in the country with two bases.  Just think of all the tax revenue we’ll receive.  Oh, and we’ll also be one of the most important counties in the galaxy.  You can’t forget that.”

Moustis announced that District 4 Board Member Jackie Traynere will be in charge of the county’s new Interstellar Affairs Committee:  “I wanted to appoint someone from the Republican Party, but we couldn’t get around the fact that she worked the hardest to secure this base, and has the most experience dealing with our new taxpayers—I mean aliens.”

Traynere laughed and thanked Moustis:  “Our new base will allow us to reduce the tax burden on residents of Will County.  More importantly, it will allow the board to fully fund all of its public services.  Personally, I hope that we use the extra money to provide single-payer health insurance to our residents.  At the very least, it will provide the county with resources to survive the coming chaos President Trump is going to inflict upon our country.”

Moustis shook his head.

Christian Cairy, a former candidate for Will County Board, announced that he supported the new base. (That is why he decided to withdraw from the race.) He also added that the New World Order tried to get him thrown off the ballot.

“You didn’t need to forge that Democratic ballot, but I guess it worked out because I wanted out of the race.  (Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar) was creeping me out with his Illuminati rituals.  He wanted me to drink from the Cup of Chaos, then sign a contract using ink mixed with my blood, his blood, and the trustees’ blood.  Then Roger introduced me to an alien.  It wasn’t a little green man.  It looked disgusting.  Roger said if I swore allegiance to the Illuminati, the alien would take me on a trip to Uranus. Ew!  Anyway, The NWO promised to rewrite my memories so I can go back to being an ordinary Republican.  I can’t stand knowing that the Babbler was always right.”

Cairy asked that Traynere not miss any more meetings and promise not to impose taxes on Amazon purchases.  Traynere replied her new job should give her time to attend all the meetings, and that Amazon has been paying the Illinois sales tax since 2015.

NWO administrator Thomas Xavier announced that Palatine will also get a UFO Base.  While Peotone’s base will specialize in freight transport and warehousing, Palatine’s base will specialize in passenger service and cultural exchanges.

“For years, Cook County has begged us for a UFO base.  The problem is we didn’t want to deal with the Chicago political machine, but we couldn’t deny the advantages of a base located inside Cook County.  Then, it occurred to us that if we located the base in Palatine, it would still be in Cook County, but far enough away from Chicago that Rahm Emanuel’s influence would be limited.”

Xavier then said he had to leave to give Mayor Jim Schwantz the good news:  “I’m going to have to explain aliens and secret societies to him.  I can’t wait to see the look on his face when he learns the truth.  However, I don’t look forward to telling him that he won’t be able to tell Representative Peter Roskam about the base.”

Neither Claar nor Schwantz could be reached for comment.

A video chat request to Roskam was answered by an intern:  “Look, I don’t know if Peter is a Democrat or Republican, but I do know that there’s no such thing as UFOs.  Why don’t you cover the real news?  Like right now is the second time Peter has spoken with a resident on the campaign trail.  Do you know how rare that is?”

The camera turned to show Roskam talking to a man sitting in a wheelchair.

“Thank you for defending the Americans with Disabilities Act,” said the man.

Roskam smiled.  “It’s the least I could do since I’m taking away your health care and Social Security.  You’re welcome.”

Alien protesters shut down Clow UFO Base (Fiction)

Since Friday, aliens protesting US Immigration detentions and “human mismanagement of Earth,” have shut down Clow UFO Base. The protests are the largest and most disruptive in Clow’s history since 2016 when aliens protested a Trump fundraiser. (The fundraiser took place at the Bolingbrook Golf Club.)

UFO“Today, Trump will go after humans with dark skin who cross an imaginary line,” said a masked alien addressing one of the many roving bands of protesters.  “Tomorrow, his Space Force will come after us!  The next day, he will drug our children instead of their children.  The day after that, he will declare war against the galaxy.  We won’t let it get that far. Let’s show Homo Sapiens that we will resist tomorrow!”

Some protesters are chanting, “Humans are horrible,” and staging sit-ins at various offices and embassies.  Others have parked their UFOs on the launch pads and are refusing to move them by claiming that they require parts that need to be ordered from their home planets.  Some of the protesters claim to have set up “autonomous zones,” and are enforcing them with combat robots.

“We have a very fluid situation at Clow UFO Base,” explained Joan Armstrong, spokesperson for the Department of Interstellar Affairs.  “We hope all residents will support (Mayor Roger Claar’s) efforts to restore law and order at Clow.  I’m sure the residents will understand if Roger declares a state of minor annoyance within the village.”

Neither Armstrong nor other department officials clarified what a “state of minor annoyance” would entail for residents.

An anonymous source close to Trustee Robert Jaskiewicz said Jaskiewicz was in negotiations with the protesters to return control of Clow back to the village:  “Bob is very sympathetic to the concerns of the protesters.  He supports the humane treatment of all who seek refuge in the United States and believes in due process.  Bob is working with Roger and all the trustees to bring peace and justice to Clow.  Humans can improve!”

Other sources claim that Claar sought assistance from Melania Trump, who is in charge of all Illuminati controlled UFO bases in the United States.  According to the sources, Trump replied by saying, “I might help you, but first you need to help me.  Which jacket should I wear to my meeting with the Martian Colonial ambassador?  The one that says, ‘I really don’t care. Do U?’ or the one that says, ‘Work sets you free?’”

When called for a comment, a receptionist said Claar was telephoning his Facebook critics and could not be disturbed.

In the background, a man who sounded like Claar said, “You wrote that I am a straw man.  I’ll have you know that there is no straw anywhere in my body.  I am fully human!  How dare you accuse me of being a scarecrow!  What?  Why, yes I am a master debater!  I’ve been practicing for nearly forty years!”

Mayor Claar’s android double malfunctions at Village Board meeting (Fiction)

Anonymous employees at the Village of Bolingbrook’s IT department confirm that Mayor Roger Claar’s android double malfunctioned during the 6/12/18 board meeting. 

“It almost shifted into combat mode during the Trustee Comments portion of the agenda,” said Blake, who asked that we not use his real name.  “That would have been embarrassing since now we’re broadcasting each meeting on Facebook, and people were actually watching the stream that night.”

According to the employees, the android detected two former members of the opposition group Citizens for a Better Bolingbrook in the audience— Bonnie Kurowski-Alicea, and Robert Bowen— as well as Will County Board member Jackie Traynere.

Alice, another employee who asked that we not use her real name, explained:  “I didn’t realize it at the time,  but Roger 2.0 can’t distinguish between someone attacking a viewpoint and a physical attack.  Someone, I won’t name him, forgot to add that small but important piece of code to his programming.  So anyway, when 2.0 saw those people in the audience, it assumed that it was about to be physically attacked.  That’s why it was about to go into combat mode before I hit the manual override button.  This same someone thought it was more important to create a ‘cool’ android rather than a safe android.  I could say something about programmers watching too much anime, but I won’t.”

She went on to explain that in override mode, the android couldn’t talk.  So, she called Claar and told him that he would have to control the android from his study at home.

“Roger wasn’t happy,” said Alice.  “He said he was about to post an epic rant on Facebook, and I was ruining his concentration.  I told him that if he didn’t take over, the android would be mute for the rest of the meeting.  Since people were actually watching this meeting on Facebook, it would be in his best interest to take over—  Unless he wanted residents wondering why he was speechless after (Trustee Robert Jaskiewicz’s) comments.  Roger said some words to me that you can’t publish, then took over.”

Blake said he was glad no one was killed but was disappointed in how the meeting ended:  “Roger 2.0 was going to give a speech about the Bolingbrook Pride Picnic.  It would have been the first coherent speech written by an AI.  Instead, Roger decided to complain about people complaining on Facebook.  I still can’t believe it.  Don’t print this, but I don’t think Roger 1.0 would have passed the Turing Test that night.”

Blake also explained that this was the first significant test for the android.  “Sure the Bolingbrook First trustees use android doubles at all the meetings.  But honestly, it doesn’t take much computational power to vote yes and praise Roger.  This was the first step in Roger’s goal of a fully automated Village Board!”

Alice is less optimistic:  “This is really part of Roger’s dream to upload his brain into an android so he’ll be the mayor of Bolingbrook forever.  What Roger is going to figure out is that he’ll only be able to upload a copy of his brain to an android.  The soul, for lack of a better word, will still be with him.  Plus the copies will get degraded over time.  He’d be better off investing in stem cell research to keep himself alive forever. If he asked me.  He won’t.”

When asked to comment, Claar’s receptionist said he was at a debriefing, and could not be disturbed.

In the background, a woman who sounded like Charlene Z. Spencer said: “So what did you think of the Pride Picnic?”

A man who sounded like Claar said, “There were a few good things, and there was one bad thing about it.  It was a family-friendly event.  There were no communist newspapers.  The men didn’t wear Speedos.  The women were clothed.  The attendees were friendly, and I made a new ally.”

“Great.  I’m glad you went and found some good things.  So what was the bad thing?”

“No VIP tent.”

From the Webmaster: Clipped (Video)

Thought Curve’s song “Clipped” came out in 1991, it makes me think of the Trump era.  Especially the lyrics, “There’s no truth/There’s no lies.”

Red Deer Reporter: US covert operatives spotted in the area! (Fiction)

From the Babbler:  This article is from our sister publication, the Red Deer Reporter. It’s based in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

Sightings of possible US covert operatives near Red Deer skyrocketed following the disastrous G-7 summit.

Josephine, who asked that we not use her last name, described her encounter with one:  “I was sitting in my favorite bar when this weird man walked up to me and sat next to me without my permission.  He said he was a member of the ‘Wild Alberta’ party, but they weren’t going far enough.  He wondered if I thought that the US should invade Alberta so (President Trump) could make it great again.  I told him that invasions kill poor people to make rich people richer.  I also told him that I used to be a member of the United Conservative Party, but then I started reading Against the Grain and the  Reprobate Spreadsheet.  Now I am a much better person. He left.  Come to think of it, he did have an odd accent.”

Paul, who asked that we not use his real name, said a tractor-trailer truck pulled up next to him.  The driver stepped out and offered Paul an assault rifle.  Paul declined:  “I have enough guns.  The driver said that he was going to help ‘Texas North’ resist the ‘French Occupational Government.’  He asked if I would take up arms to defend the English Language.  I said people from Quebec are fine, but I would take up arms against the United States.  They steal our cheap medicine and demand that we say ‘eh’ for their amusement.  I would love to plunder their shale oil so Alberta could control the global market.  The driver took the gun away and left without saying goodbye.  How rude.”

Dena Z. Franson claims she encountered a sniper on her ranch:  “I saw this fake cow in my field.  Figuring it was a joke, I decided to approach it and throw it out.  When a got about a meter away, a man inside said, ‘Moo.  La moo.’  I stopped, and he said it again.  Then he said, ‘I am a Canadian cow.  Moo!  La Moo!’  I said that it is a balmy 15 C degrees outside, and he might overheat inside that fake cow.  That’s when I saw a rifle barrel come out of the cow’s mouth.  He used some unpleasant language before saying, “I’m here to make America again, and I’ll shoot any Canadian who refuses to submit to our President.  La Great!  La Shoot!  La Kill!  La Trump!’  I ran away.”

Police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police officials said they were not aware of any US military presence near Red Deer.  They did suggest that if any resident encounters US operatives, they should run to safety and call 911.

From the Webmaster: Why we need events like the Bolingbrook Pride Picnic (Mixed)

By Wendy Onofrey

On the eve of the Bolingbrook Pride Picnic and Puppies event, I’d thought I should point out this article from fellow Freethought member Trav Mamone:

It’s Pride Month. A time to celebrate all things queer and trans, remember those who lost their lives in the struggle for human rights, and explain—again—to straight people why there’s no Straight Pride Month. This false equivalency boils down to the common misconception that LGBTQ people like myself are celebrating something we didn’t achieve through hard work, like being born with a certain sexual orientation or gender identity. What people fail to realize is we’re celebrating something we achieved: all the accomplishments the LGBTQ rights movement has made so far, and that we choose to love ourselves in the face of bigotry.

You can read the rest here.

As Mamone also points out, there is still more work to be.  Last year Sarah Sanders said the administration believed that business have the right to refuse service to gays.  President Donald Trump is currently trying to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military. Kansas and Oklahoma now allow adoption agencies that receive taxpayer money to deny adoptions to gays for religious reasons.  In Illinois, Jeanne Ives almost won the primary race for Governor despite running a flagrantly transphobic ad.

So tomorrow, let’s celebrate the first Pride event in Bolingbrook.  It is a significant milestone that should be celebrated.  Let’s also remember that there’s more to be done and that the progress that’s been made still needs to be defended.

Web Exclusive: Roskam campaign accuses Sean Casten of being a space alien (Fiction)

Anonymous members of Representative Peter Roskam’s election campaign are spreading rumors that his opponent, Sean Casten, is a space alien.

The Roskam campaign claims this photo is proof that his opponent, Sean Casten, is an alien.

“There’s something not right about Sean,” said one source.  “He sounds smart, but he’s too smart.  Like, a highly intelligent alien pretending to be a human.”

“Exactly,” added an anonymous campaign member.  “Rock musician?  Scientist?  Father?  Business leader?  Athlete? Doesn’t it all seem too good to be true?  Like an alien pretending to be the perfect political candidate?”

When asked for evidence that Casten is an alien, they produced an “enhanced photo” of Casten taken at a candidates forum in Palatine, IL.

James, who asked that we not use his last name, or state his position in the Roskam campaign, conceded that the photo was weak evidence:  “But if you combine this photo with our questions, enough people might believe he’s a space alien.  The rabble, I mean the voters, will turn against Sean, and we’ll win!”

Brian Z. Buckman, A spokesperson for Bolingbrook’s Department of Interstellar Affairs, said their investigations back in 2007 prove Casten is human:  “While you can’t prove a negative, we were able to confirm his birth on Earth, his human physiology and his educational background.  The background information on Sean’s website is correct, except he doesn’t mention the years he worked at Clow UFO Base.  I can say that he had excellent employee evaluation scores, but that is all I can say.”

Another member of the Roskam campaign, who asked to be called Anne, said charges are based on “political reality,” and not on “science-based facts.”

“You have to look at where we stand.  The good news is most people in the Illinois Sixth Congressional District are familiar with Peter.  The bad news is most of those same people hate him.  Fortunately, the rabble —I mean voters— know very little about Sean.  So Peter’s ordered us to throw everything at him.  Not just the kitchen sink, but the plumbing too.  That’s why we’re trying to create a political reality in which Sean is a space alien.  It might cost him votes, and those votes could be the key to our victory.”

Anne said the “enhanced photo” of Casten will be distributed to paranormal websites, and to InfoWars sometime next week.

A phone call to the Casten campaign was answered by a staff member.  “Alien?  Sean is talking to an IL06 resident and doesn’t have time for your nonsense.”

In the background, a man said, “Who cares if the planet dies?  I only care about making my business profitable.”

A man who sounded like Casten said, “You do realize there are no profitable companies on a dead planet?”

The other man paused, then said, “I never thought of it that way.”

A call to the Roskam campaign was also answered by a staff member.  “If people want to believe Mr. Casten is an illegal liberal space alien, we won’t stop them.”

In the background, Roskam said, “Hi.  I’m Representative Peter Roskam.”

“Roskam?  You’re the one who keeps interrupting my family dinners with your ‘phone-in’ town hall meetings.”

“I’m better known as the leader who cut your federal taxes.”

“You wrote that plan?  Thanks to you, I can no longer deduct state and local taxes, and your plan threatens Social Security and Medicare.”

“You’re welcome.  Anyway, I’ve selected your household to be the only one I visit this year.  You should be honored to be the only commoner I will talk to this election cycle.  I want to hear the thoughts of a real American like you.”

“Here’s what I think.”

This was followed by the sound of a slamming door. 

Aliens to offer free UFO rides at the first Bolingbrook Pride Picnic (Fiction)

By Reporter X

Some attendees of the Bolingbrook Pride Picnic on June 10 will get a free UFO ride.

“It’s about time Bolingbrook had a pride event,” said Oxlogot, who is donating her spacecraft for the event.  “I thought the least I could do was make the first event special.”

Oxlogot added that she was disappointed that the Department of Interstellar Affairs wasn’t supporting the Pride event:  “You would think the Village employees would want to show the galaxy that they support and celebrate all sexualities.  Instead, they’re working on promotional tie-ins for the Bolingbrook Pet Parade.  The department may not wish to recognize the triumphs and struggles of Bolingbrook’s LGBTQA+ community, but I, along with many other visitors, do recognize them. We also appreciate all they bring to Bolingbrook and Clow.”

According to Oxlogot, attendees will be randomly selected for the UFO rides.  The ride will include a flyover of Clow UFO Base, and a trip to the far side of the moon: “They’ll only be gone from the picnic for five minutes.  All minors will be accompanied by their parents.  It’ll be fun, and I’m allowed to let my passengers remember the trip.”

An official from the Department of Interstellar Affairs defended the decision not to participate in the Pride Picnic: “Any visitor with the proper paperwork can attend the picnic.  Right now, our main focus is making preparations to celebrate Flag Day.  The village has never recognized Pride Month.  Why should this department be the exception?”

Oxlogot and her crew will also assist with security at the picnic:  “I know Clow bans interstellar Nazis, but many are sneaking into Bolingbrook so they can help Arthur Jones’s congressional campaign.  My crew will make sure they stay far away from the picnic.  The only thing people should worry about is how much time they’ll get to spend with the puppies.”

When asked to comment, a Bolingbrook Pride committee member laughed and hung up.

A receptionist for Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said he was attending a critical briefing and could not be disturbed.

In the background, a man who sounded like Claar, said: “So, Charlene, if I go to this picnic, what should I say?”

“You should say that it doesn’t matter who Bolingbrook residents love— Just as long as there’s a place in their hearts for you, Roger.  Isn’t that what living in Bolingbrook is really about?”

Web Exclusive: Village of Bolingbrook posts cryptic videos on its webpage (Fiction)

The Village of Bolingbrook stunned residents by replacing the streaming video and archives of Bolingbrook Community Television on its webpage with cryptic videos. The IT department and BCTV refused to comment on the changes.

Images of three videos on the Village of Bolingbrook web site.

Do these videos on the Bolingbrook website have a hidden meaning? Some residents say they do. 

“This is an evil attempt to force residents to buy cable TV,” said Joan Z. Miller.  “I’m sorry, but I refuse to subsidize an expensive dinosaur corporation just so I can watch village meetings.  I used to love (Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar), but not after this!”

Another viewer, who asked to be called Jeb, agrees: “When I’m sitting in front of the TV, I don’t want to watch a government meeting, I want to be entertained.  However, when I’m walking along the DuPage River Greenway Trail, I like to listen to the Village Board meeting.  It was so relaxing to hear (Trustee Robert Jaskiewicz) notice things the other trustees missed. Now Roger has taken that pleasure away from me!”

Currently, there are three videos on the village website.  The first is titled Testing, and it shows a performance by the Bolingbrook Community Chorus.  The second is titled 2018 CP Game 03 WhiteSox vs RedSox, but shows a Valley View 365U School Board meeting, a weather map, and an adult flag football game.  The third video is titled Village of Bolingbrook Memorial Day Ceremony, but shows 18 minutes of a Village Board meeting.  A fourth video, now taken down, showed marathon runners crossing a finish line.

Steve, who asked that we not use his last name, believes the videos contain an ominous message:  “These videos are a warning from the Bolingbrook Police Department.  They’re planning a coup against Roger. They want to take all the tax money and put it in the pension fund.  You have to put the videos in the right order to see this.  First, the officers plan on killing the Village Board.  Then the chorus will perform at their funeral.  Then they’ll distract us with sporting events as they steal our tax funds.  So if you know what’s best for you, you’ll run away from Bolingbrook.  The message is obvious— Unless you’re a sheeple!”

Blake, who also asked that we not use his last name, has another interpretation:  “Roger knows that the Second Coming is about to happen, but the liberal media won’t let him warn us.  So he’s using these videos to tell us.  The Chorus’ performance is praising God.  The liberal educators are clueless as the storm is coming.  Flag Football is symbolic of the coming challenges the Antichrist will impose on us.  All the Village Board members will be raptured.  So if you want to be saved, you need to run towards Jesus!”

Mayor Claar could not be reached for comment.  His receptionist said there is nothing mysterious about the videos:  “They’re switching steaming software, and they have to go back and recode the old videos before they can be put back online.  Everything, including the streaming video, should be back up soon.  Just between you and me, I think the new system still needs work.”

A man who sounded like Claar said, “BCTV, schedule a marathon of shows featuring my favorite woman.”

“Scheduling the Jackie Traynere Marathon,” replied a digital female voice.

“What?  Why do you think I like Jackie Traynere?”

“You said your favorite woman was ‘Jackie Traynere No Just Kidding It’s Actually My Wife.’  The closest match is Jackie Traynere.”

“You (expletive deleted) suck!”

“I am Bolingbrook Community Television’s Digital Assistant.  I am a part of BCTV.  BCTV is a part of Bolingbrook.  Mayor Roger Claar is Bolingbrook.  Any obscenities directed at me are directed at Roger.”
