My Fellow Americans

We interrupt this blog to bring you an important message from someone who is unable to use official channels

My Fellow Americans

I am sending you this message through the blog of an anonymous British guy because if it ever gets out that this is really me…the CIA will kill me…no really.

I thought it would be great to be in charge, but I have to tell you it sucks. You see - I just figured out that I’m not in charge. OK, you might think that I’m a slow study but it’s so confusing here I have to tell you.

Like the day I arrived & the CIA took me down to the basement: they showed me a film of JFK getting shot - from a camera behind the shooter. Then they turned off the screen, turned up the lights, looked at me with a sinister smile and said: ‘So Mr President, any questions?’

I thought they were kidding...thought maybe they were Bill Hicks fans...or that it was just a ‘guy’ thing…but then I read the files…boy, you guys have got no idea. Sorry about the files by the way, I tried to release them but what can you do when you’re up against the guys who run the country?

Anyway I got to go before someone sees me. The point is this – don’t believe everything they tell you about Russia – They’re upset that Putin stopped them doing the job in Ukraine, and now they’re really pissed that he did it again in Syria. I’d like to talk to him honest I would, but it’s more than my job’s worth…no scrub that - it’s more than my life’s worth.  One more thing – there’s some bad stuff coming. Please understand this: when I have to support Israel supporting Saudi Arabia attacking Lebanon to get to Iran…it’s not my fault…I’m really just a hostage here.

God bless America…the real one…sorry…I’ll try to do better…
