This is the seventh installment of a project that is likely to extend over a two-year-period from January, 2010.  It is the serialization of a book entitled The 15% Solution: A Political History of American Fascism, 2001-2022.  Under the pseudonym Jonathan Westminster, it is purportedly published in the year 2048 on the 25th Anniversary of the Restoration of Constitutional Democracy in the Re-United States. It was actually published in 1996 by the Thomas Jefferson Press, located in Port Jefferson, NY. The copyright is held by the Press.  Herein you will find Chapter 6.  In it you meet Jefferson Da­vis (J.D.) Hague, a Sara Palinesque character who was the 45th President of the old United States.  He was a great grand nephew of the pre-World War II Mayor of Jersey City, NJ, Frank Hague, a man who once said: “You hear about constitutional rights, free speech and the free press.  Every time I hear these words I say to myself, ‘That man is a Red, that man is a Communist!’  You never hear a real American talk like that.”

A national movement based on shared perceptions brought together Labor, environmentalists, monetary reformers and social justice activists spanning the political spectrum. Attorney General Ramsey Clark’s effort to impeach Bush-Cheney war criminals drew over a million petition signatures from conservatives and liberals alike. What became of this momentum for deep systemic reform when Obama was elected?
