This was transmitted a short time ago from the branch of the Universal Planetary Government called the United States of North America (USNA). A senator from the Confederate-South region was speaking in New Washington on the floor of the USNA congress:
“Fellow senators, fellow North Americans. I rise to address you again on a matter of great concern to many: the much ballyhooed claim of a supposed asteroid strike on our fair city. No doubt you too have seen the repeated alarmist texts from the New York Cybertimes and similar sources. We have been assailed now for months at an increasing tempo, harangued with assertions that a doomsday collision is imminent.

So I rise, in this almost empty chamber my fellow North Americans, to speak Truth to Falsehood, to stand as a beacon to steadfastness, to mock the would-be scientific priestcraft in their futile attempt to frighten us into submission and so advance their sinister agenda.
