WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the wake of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s highly anticipated testimony before Congress this week, President Donald J. Trump on Friday issued a controversial executive order abolishing America’s longstanding two-party system and criminalizing the formation of political organizations not sanctioned by the White House.
“Despite the failed efforts of Nancy Pelosi and the radical left, my administration has accomplished more in the last two years than any administration in the history of this country and very possibly the world,” President Trump boasted as he signed the historic order into law. “The time has come to unite our great nation under the banner of a single party: the America First Party,” the president announced, later calling it “frankly, the only legitimate political party” in the United States.
Aptly named The Law Against the Formation of New Parties, the presidential directive prohibits the creation of “opposition parties,” and bars anyone not affiliated with the newly established America First Party from holding public office. “Elected officials are required by law to register with the Party if they wish to serve out the remainder of their term,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham told reporters, adding that President Trump has given Congress a “grace period” of five weeks to do so. “Following the August recess, proof of party membership is required for all persons who wish to enter the U.S. Capitol complex,” Grisham explained, adding that the new policy applies to all federal buildings.
While party membership is not mandatory for all Americans, those who fail to register will “voluntarily” give up certain civil liberties and freedoms such as the right to gun ownership, possession and consumption of alcohol, and interstate travel. “In extreme cases, state or local party leadership may grant a temporary waiver allowing for interstate travel,” White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller told Breitbart News. One of the key authors of The Law Against the Formation of New Parties, Miller said the policy was designed to “make it easier for law enforcement to round up illegals and restrict the movement of subversives.”
A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security on Friday announced that federal agents executed dozens of early morning raids across the United States targeting the Democratic National Committee and other illegal political organizations. Calling the operation a “major victory for the American people,” the spokesperson said more than a thousand individuals have been taken into custody with the vast majority facing up to fifty years in federal prison for crimes against the state.
