War in the South China Sea
The President faces assassination
A clash between US and Chinese destroyers near the Spratly Islands prompts President Samuel Walters to launch an attack against Fiery Cross Reef, occupied by China as part of its nine-dash line claim over the South China Sea.
To curb influence of Big Money and Super PACs in the national political process, the President urges the Supreme Court to reverse its 2010 decision on the ‘Citizens United v FEC’ case. He also wants the Justice Department to rigidly enforce the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to stop American corporations accepting bribes and kickbacks to secure overseas contracts. He then introduces the 28th Constitutional Amendment to set Congressional term limits.
These measures seriously threaten corporate influence over Congress, and the secretive Omicron Group orders the President assassinated.
An explosive political drama that might be happening right now.
