First Party ‘gets real’ during candidates’ victory speeches to the Illuminati
Mary Alexander-Basta, the Mayor-elect of Bolingbrook, addressed members of the Illuminati following the First Party for Bolingbrook’s sweeping of the 2021 Consolidated Election.
“Our opponents ran a negative campaign by trying to steal offices from us, “ said Alexander-Basta. “We ran a positive campaign by trying to stay in office. Thanks to the power of passive-aggressive positivity, we won! Stay positive, Bolingbrook.”
The First Party won the races for mayor, clerk, and three open Village Trustee positions. Bolingbrook United failed to defend the seat being vacated by Trustee Robert Jaskiewicz. Bolingbrook Independent Voices will be represented by Trustee Sheldon Watts, who will be up for reelection in 2023.
After Alexander-Basta’s speech, the Grand Master Councilor of Egypt performed the Rite of the Phoenix in honor of her loyalty to the Illuminati and her efforts to spread global chaos outside of Bolingbrook. She thanked the Grand Master Councilor and added: “Bolingbrook has the best golf club, best UFO Base, and is loyal to the best secret society! Fnord! That’s how I’m pronouncing it.”
Trustee Maria Zarate delivered a speech in English thanking local members of the Illuminati for their hard work. She concluded with a message for Jaskiewicz. In Spanish, she said: “May you suffer in Hell like you made us suffer at board meetings!”
Trustee-elect Troy Doris promised to be a “Better Sheldon than Sheldon.” Possibly a reference to Trustee Sheldon Watts, the Bolingbrook Independent Voices mayoral candidate. Doris also apologized for calling pro-choice supporters “anti-life.”
“Let’s try this again: We’re not pro-QAnon Republicans. We’re not pro-Child Trafficking Democrats. We just don’t care!”
Trustee Michael Carpanzano ran on stage and whispered into Doris’s ear.
Doris replied: “Man! This is harder than the triple jump. Um, we do care about kids and— Look! (Bolingbrook United Mayoral candidate Jackie Traynere) posted something on the Internet.”
Trustee Michael Lawler did not appear on stage.
After the slate performed the Rite of Ascension, an audience member asked how Alexander-Basta planned to rule Bolingbrook when over 57% of voters chose the other candidates. She laughed and said: “As our former Mayor once said, there are residents, and there are foes. My supporters are residents and those voters are foes! I don’t work with foes.”
New World Order crushes the Illuminati to retake DuPage Township
After years of conflict, the New World Order regained control of DuPage Township with the Democratic Party’s sweeping victory over the Illuminati-controlled Republicans.
“Tonight,” said Supervisor-elect Gary Marschke at the New World Order victory party, “The residents of our township rejected the Illuminati’s chaos and discord. They rejected the chaos operatives from Edgar County. They rejected the flagrant abuse of our legal system. They voted for the harmony and order that only we can provide. So to the good residents of DuPage Township, I say this: Get ready to experience the might of a fully operational township!”
New World Order member and outgoing Republican Trustee Ken Burgess congratulated the victors: “We may not be members of the same political party, but we are united in our belief that order must be maintained against chaos. We understand that in the right hands, the right amount of order in a society will let freedom bloom. I congratulate my fellow NWO colleagues for their victory against the Illuminati. Just don’t raise my taxes, okay?”
Later in the party, Bolingbrook’s Deputy Mayor Michael Lawler wondered in and was surrounded by four Men in Black.
“I thought our victory party was at Lou Malnati’s,” said Lawler.
“No,” replied Trustee-elect Reem Townsend. “The Illuminati is meeting at the Golf Club this time. Since we’re in a good mood tonight, we’ll order the Men in Black to take you home.”
“Since I’m in a good mood, I won’t tell Mary on all of you.”
After Lawler left, Townsend said, “Why do I have a feeling I’m going to be quoted in the Babbler?”
“Don’t worry,” replied Terri Ransom. “Nobody believes the Babbler.”
Opposition parties eventually accept crushing defeats in Bolingbrook
Bolingbrook Independent Voices, Bolingbrook United, and the DuPage Township Republicans eventually accepted their major defeats. However the DuPage Township Republicans almost started an insurrection.
During DuPage Township Trustee Alyssia Benford’s speech to the Bolingbrook Illuminati, she announced that she was about to summon the Edgar County Irregular Militia to help her “find” enough votes for her to win. A masked man stormed on stage and warned her not to call them.
“I spent over $40,000 on the First Party,” said the man. “I am not going have you ruin my investment with a civil war!”
“I am a Knight of Chaos and a CPA,” replied Benford. “I must claim my election today.”
“Not on my watch,” countered the man. “As a Knight, you are sworn to spread chaos outside of Bolingbrook. Instead, you have spent years sowing chaos in my village! This election wasn’t stolen from you. You lost! Why the (expletive deleted) did you think it was a good idea to pick Deborah Williams and Antonio Timothee?”
“Because I’m the biggest—” replied Timothee.
“Joke on Bolingbrook’s Facebook groups.” snapped the man. “Alyssia, call off your dogs from Edgar County or you won’t be a CPA. You’ll be DOA!”
At the New World Order Victory Party, mayoral candidate Jackie Traynere announced that she had congratulated Bolingbrook Mayor Mary Alexander-Basta for her win.
“I thought we could pull it off this time,” said Traynere. “Instead, we lost ground since the 2017 election. But I will take some comfort knowing that I beat (Trustee Sheldon Watts). I will also take comfort knowing that I still have my seat on the Will County Board. I heard Sheldon will have to perform the Illuminati’s Rite of the Burning Mile if he wants a future in Bolingbrook politics. I hope he has tough feet.”
Charlene Spencer, a volunteer for Bolingbrook Independent Voices, announced during a video call that she was going to contest the election results:
“There’s no way BIV came in last place. The First Party had nothing but their passive aggressive positivity. We ran a shining campaign filled with vague promises, real residents, and tons of drone footage! That was a recipe for a landslide. This election was rigged, and I will prove to the right people that that a conspiracy by Anwar Sadat, Jimmy Carter, Mao—”
Watts ran into the room and said: “Charlene! What are you doing? You know that’s a big lie. We lost—”
“Lost? Are you kidding? I’ve only just begun to fight for you!”
“There’e aren’t enough outstanding votes to save us. It’s over.”
“It’s only a minor setback! We can still take over the board!”
“At what cost?”
“I’ll give you a discount—”
“No! Charlene, stand down. I’m going to concede!”
“Sheldon! You need to stop backing down to Mary all the time like you did with Roger. Seize this moment and you’ll be remembered as the Mayor who liberated Bolingbrook! Democracy is dumb, Sheldon! Help me put it out of its misery!”
Watts shook his head. “Democracy is not dumb. You’re confusing our patriotic rituals with democracy. The ideas of democracy are not dumb. Respecting the will of the people is smart. Supporting the peaceful transition of power to the victor is smart. The idea that any resident or slate in Bolingbrook has a chance to non-violently win control of the government is fundamental to Bolingbrook’s well being.”
“But,” protested Charlene. “If we don’t stop her now, I know she’ll declare Bolingbrook to be under the rule of the Eternal Kingdom of the First Party, and she’ll—”
“She won’t, and even if she did, she’d fail. In Ecclesiastes 3:1—”
“I’m an atheist, Sheldon. Your Bible trick won’t work on me.”
“Fine. Then I will cite George Hrab. ‘The fairness of unfairness is in everything’s demise.’ It is unfair that we lost and (Former Mayor Roger Claar) used me. But Roger’s time will end. The First Party will eventually disband, and it will be a time for a new party to take over. Maybe it will be my party. Maybe not. But for the good of Bolingbrook, we need to preserve representative democracy. That’s what really counts, Charlene. I’d rather lose 100 elections than see Bolingbrook descend into despotism, anarchy, or worse. So please stop trying to overthrow this election, and help me win the next election, okay?”
“You…You actually listened to a George Hrab album? For me?”
“Yes, and may the Lord forgive me.”
