Manifesto of the Liberal party


Image


The well known politician, Justin Trudeau, makes his way into the Government office in Niagara, where a crowd is waiting for him. He ushers silence, and begins speaking.

“Ladies and Gentlepeople, The history of all of existing Society is a history of class struggles.
Freepeoplekind and slave, patrician and plebeian, Haldune and Benis, Oppressor and Oppressed Gamers stood in Constant opposition to each other, carried on an uninterrupted, first hidden, now APSIAwide battle, that always ended in ruin, a failed workers republic, a scar upon this earth, each time leaving a greater divide between the contending classes.”

“During Earlier years in history we have seen plenty of societal arrangement into classes, a diverse graduation of economic rank. In feudal Zhovka we had Kniaz, Lords, princes, Guild Masters, serfs. In Ancient Song we saw Emporers, Artisians, Peasants and Slaves; and in between all of them lay a common connection of Subordinate Graduations. “

“We live in a society that has not changed, only sprouting from the ruins of feudalism, never doing away with the class antagonisms. Instead we have established new classes of Opression, only taking the place of the old ones.”

“The discovery of America, the rounding of the Cape, opened up fresh ground for the rising moneybags, the filth and greed that came from them. And as the trade routes grew so did the Oppression, with more and more division between the classes. Peoplekind fell into a feudal system of Industry, in which production was monopolised by guilds and no longer sufficed for the needs of the people. The means of manufacturing goods was operated by the Rich guild masters, while the lower class worked for them, not by a will, but by need.”

“This system of working for scraps fueled the markets as they kept ever growing, with demand ever rising. Steam machinery further revolutionised the market, decreasing the demand for a lower class and separating the ranks more and more. Millionaires took roots, and the giant of modern industry, creating the modern industrial machine we live in today.”

“Modern industry has established the world market, for which the discovery of America paved the way. This market has given an immense development to commerce, to navigation, to communication by land. This development has, in its turn, reacted on the extension of industry; and in proportion as industry, commerce, navigation, railways extended, in the same proportion the bourgeoisie developed, increased its capital, and pushed into the background every class handed down from the Middle Ages.”

Image

Trudeau continues on to read through the pages of the Trudeau manifesto, all while the crowds stands in awe at the size of this lad

“...and so we have come to this point in our lives, where not even the Communists can be Communist. Ladies and Gentlepeople, this has changed. The once horrid scenes of OPPRESSION has been cut down, like hay with a sickle. I am proud to announce that the Gettysburg Confederacy and Antes Republic will become one, under one banner. A truly communist banner. Thank you.”

Justin dons Hijab and leaves as the crowd stands in the streets, shocked and speechless

      President Korsgaard gives New Prussia 36 hours to talk
      I'm not going to comment directly on the unthinkable actions of the New Prussia government: to draw parallel covenants from the EC with nations hostile to the alliance without even consulting the Council is an outrageous action against the whole union. Prussia to suspend the treaty with Landersvich and have them withdraw their troops within 48 hours before this gesture is considered hostile towards the whole union.

      These are the words of President Kornsgaard after the extraordinary meeting with representatives of the European defense pact called after the incomprehensible decision of New Prussia to enter what looks like a second defensive union with the Landersvich country, to which the tension has not yet dissipated after the recent hostile actions against Kakanji.
      The troops are now ready to line up while the country holds its breath.

8/12/1991

The Außenminister of Landersvich responded today to a comment made in a Hulmish newspaper; "It saddens me to see that such conflict is in Europe." he paused for a bit, then continued, "The treaty signed with New Prussia was in correspondence to the EC contract we had to sign earlier. Article three section five reads; before a nation leaves the pact, an agreement regarding the economic and military concerns of the pact in that nation or vice-versa must be made." He continued, "As for the actions that we took four months ago, we tried our best to communicate our actions clearly - obviously they dig not get received properly; we had no intention on invading Kakanj, we stationed less than 1% of our troops on the border to protect our own citizens - after talks, and reassurances from EC nations, we withdrew all but 50 in order to build barriers."

The Außenminister communicated that he does not wish harm on the EC or on Kakanj, even though they had been historic enemies. He also had the following to say - "We pulled out of the EC agreement for two reasons; one, it tried to limit and impede on our sovereignty, and two, the invitation of a historic enemy without our consultation was insulting." The Außenminister assured us that he tried to negotiate a trade deal with other EC member, however, they declined. Lastly, he said the following, "New Prussia should have the right to trade with who they please, as for the military base, it protects our investments, we especially need it in times like these." referring to the social unrest in New Prussia.

The Kaiser also issued a statement when asked what he would like to do about Hulm and the EC, "We will not be joining the EC, however, I would be more than happy to sign separate agreements with the other nation in Europe. I wish the best for New Prussia - we are here for our Germanic brothers."


A release of the contract of the EC signed by Landersvich has been released to show transparency:

Article 1

1. Free Trade is a necessity between all member nations.
2. Free Trade will be achieved by having a no tariff on commodities traded

7. Meme Member Nations should protect national individualities by

The New Prussian Neutrality Issue

      The New Prussian Neutrality Issue
      Image

      After the rather ridicules demand by the Republic of Hulm to dismantle the defacto Prussian Neutrality towards both groups towards each other to in effect preserve peace and stability in Europe, to prevent a war between both Hulm and Landersvich which no matter who started it would decimate the Prussian economy but the world as a whole and potentially cause a third world war. As such while the New Prussian President is rejecting the concept of dismantling the defensive duel nature in favor of keeping peace it is willing to negotiate a means to either withdraw Landersvich troops from New Prussia or to allow a similar such military base operated by Hulm forces, or withdrawing from the defensive part of both treaties in order to keep true to its ideals. The exact terms of which are to be discussed in a close door meeting between the President of New Prussia, the President of Hulm, President of Alicia and the Kaiser of Landersvich in order to find a solution that can satisfy all parties.

August 14, 1991



Special Report: A Confederacy Rises



The Past
In the past year, Lasir has gone through a radical set of political changes. The relatively safe and steady political environment of the first People's Republic was taken over by a military coup which supplanted Commander-General Zhang Fu as the President of the Democratic Republic of Lasir. Only a few months later, supersonic Songjiangian bombers destroyed the presidential palace, annihilating the president and his top advisers. Enter the second People's Republic, which would last almost as long as the regime before it. The PSRL, or Parti Socialiste Rykovien de Lasir, gained a 70% majority in the National Assembly, effectively making it the de facto leader of all matters of state. Minor economic and social reforms were passed, including the controversial hemorrhaging of military personnel, taking the active manpower from 3.5Mn troops to just a paltry 500,000. The United Nationalist Front, a far-right fringe group, killed four Members of the National Assembly presumably as a violent protest against the bill. This one event would change the course of the PSRL. It went from being a peaceful giant into a vicious monster out for revenge. Declaring the UNF a terrorist group and all members enemy of the state, they mobilized the national police force to find them immediately. Launching expensive attack ads against the right-wing parties of the nation, the government, acting vicariously as the PSRL, raided multiple far-right organization's headquarters in search for evidence tied to the UNF. A few days later, the National Police discovered an abandoned compound in Saigon. The CSN, Lasir's secret intelligence organization, seeking an opportunity, abducts peasants from nearby villages branding them as the captured leaders of the CSN and murdering them on national television. It was not known at the time. The event sparks a brief period of patriotism and fervor for the PSRL, who capitalizes on the opportunity by continuing to marginalize the right-wing parties. July 24, 1991, a deadly tsunami hits the coastal city of Đà Nẵng. The event kills 4,000, severely injures tens of thousands of others, and displaces people with estimates up to 600,000 - double the original estimate. The PSRL, placid with their recent "victories" and pacified by comfort is shocked by the event and is unable to respond immediately. Angry victims swarm the capital demanding action. Gathering millions of sympathetic farmers and other peasants, who are unhappy with the current way the administration acts without the people's accord, Bangkok becomes a city of deadlock. The unyielding government is thrust ever more into the spotlight as reports of sickness and starvation amongst the protesters increase. A political organization, branded the Citizens of the Confederacy, uses the opportunity to spread their ideals of a confederate Lasir. The rising themes of unique sovereign states under one banner and more power to the people is quickly adopted by many leaders of administrative divisions, high-ranking military personnel, and even some members of the National Assembly. Three days ago, on August 3, 1991, the PSRL gives in to the demands of the protesters, realizing that their own government had turned against them, and succeeds all power to the administrative divisions.

The Present
On August 4, 1991, the former twenty-one administrative divisions had been given full sovereignty and have begun their own political processes. Each had sent a delegate to the National Congress in Bangkok in order to develop the constitution and structure of the Confederation that will bond the states together. As of now, August 14, 1991, Lasir will be known as the Confederation of Lasir. Twenty-one different countries and factions all united under one banner for the well being and mutual interests of the cooperating parties. Each state will be allowed to decide on their own political and economic systems, as well as full freedom to enact whatever policies they want within their states and within the Provinces. However, the National Congress will decide on the Confederation’s foreign policy. The National Congress has other powers as well, such as deciding on a common currency for the Confederation, the exclusive power to direct the nations armed forces, and the ability to demand a certain percentage of citizens from each district to conscript into the army. Each district has one delegate, and can choose them by whatever means necessary. However, they must choose a delegate before the annual meeting of Congress, which will take place on the second Tuesday of every December. All provinces are also stripped of the right to declare war on their fellow provinces and measures will be taken to restrict the amount of animosity between the them. As of now, there are twenty-one provinces, with more likely to come.

The Future
The new Confederation of Lasir has resulted in weaker states but a much wider opportunity for economic growth and cultural diversity. As some provinces have opted to allow corporate sponsors it is likely that foreign investment in Lasir will reach an all time high. Additionally, the Pam™ Corporation has used its considerable wealth and influence to buy out the Saigon province in the north of Lasir, and it is likely that as organizations and corporations’ influences grow comparable events will happen in the future. Where Lasir is headed for next is uncertain, but one thing is for sure: The Provinces of Lasir are willing to die for their beliefs, and in their difference and division there is unity.

Government pushes for economic growth & Tensions rise among European nations


Recent actions taken by New Prussia and Landersvich have caused the European Pact to retaliate. Alician military forces were placed on stand by. President Gaona when questioned stated "War is a last resort. I have said it once and ill say it again, the purpose of the European Pact is not to restrict the rights of member nations but to promote economic growth and the protection of European interest."
A meeting between the four nations is expected to take place soon.


Aero-Difusión has opened up two factories in Alicia not only bringing jobs but economic push. The plane part and craft manufacturer will export to multiple nations around the globe but as well as supply craft for Alicia. The company has cut deals with private airlines, the government for a new congressional private jet, and received a generous donation from the government to continue research and development.
Alician high fashion brand,Bair Jolsonaro, opened a factory in Lasir this week employing 5000 men and women. This comes after the government recalled 10,000 Lasir citizens from working in Alician mines. Bair Jolsonaro is expected to grow after recent ads released across the globe.


Insurance companies across Alicia celebrated today after the government announced tax cuts for companies who meet monthly growth requirements.


Alician Presidential Polls
President Gaona- 42.7%
Senator Bowman- 35.3%
Dr.Alcabu- 22%
Senator Bowman called for Dr.Alcabu to drop out of the race for President stating "In all honesty we know Alcabu has no chance at becoming this great nations next president. Her running will allow a man who didn't want this job, isn't doing the job correctly, and is scared to stand up for Alician interest win this election."

      Ambroise announces bid for the Presidency
      Thony Ambroise, the 48-year-old governor of Hispaniola, has announced his bid for the 1995 Presidency. Ambroise announced this yesterday at a press conference. When asked why he was running for President, Ambroise said this:

      For too long, radicals have controlled Toluca. Whether it was Ciceron's rampant militarism or Santangel's hyper-capitalism, for over 20 years no leader has attempted to breathe a breath of stability into Toluca. I aim to change that. Not to mention, all of Toluca's previous leaders have been Hispanic, usually wealthy, men. It's time for a change in this system.


      Ambroise plans to run under the Liberal Party, coming into contest with Colazzo, long time and popular leader of the Liberal Party. His campaign goals are to bring economic stability and growth to Toluca and it's neighbours that will lead to a long lasting prosperity. On top of this, an increased welfare and education scheme is one of Ambroise's top priorities.

      It's evident from Ambroise's already massive support that he will be a real contender in the presidential race. However, who knows what can change in four years?

Victory declared in Barnetia
Samuel Zemmurray captured in an overnight raid, military administration to clear remaining pockets of resistance

Santa Rosan Army units in the occupation capital, San José
San José, Military Authority in Southern Barnetia - President Tito Pérez declared a victory against the Barnetian regime this morning at the hands of Santa Rosan and Tolucan liberators after the regime's leader, Samuel Zemmurray, was captured in an overnight compound raid.

The President emphasized the roles of the country's armed forces in "bringing forth stability to Barnetia" and expanded on his desire to "return Barnetia to a democratic and constitutional society."

Santa Rosan troops marched through the major cities of Barnetia to celebrate the victory. In the city of San José, which is being used as the headquarters of the Santa Rosan Military Authority in Southern Barnetia (AMBS), the tight occupation regimen doubled down on minor violations of occupation ordinances, such as the curfew and vending laws.

The part of the country north of the Gulf of Fonesca falls under a Tolucan occupation zone, following different laws and authorities than that of the southern side. Foreign minister Billy Marino stated that "unifying the two occupation zones is not on our list of priorities at the moment," allowing Toluca a sphere of influence.

Samuel Zemmurray, the self-declared president of Barnetia and ringleader of the coup, was captured and detained by Santa Rosan special operators. He was later imprisoned in a maximum security compound in San José where he awaits trial.

      September 3rd, 1991


      The Niagara Union, forged by the true revolutionaries of Gettysburg and Antes, now stands ready to ensure that workers of the world can grow up and thrive in a fair, equal society. No longer will Americans submit to the whims of money lenders, imperialists and tyrants. No longer will the labor of workers be looted by the capitalist class. No longer will artificial scarcity be used as a tool to oppress the workers. This Union shall bring down the continent's rotten structure and issue a new age of progress. Even now the cowardly regimes in Texas, the Pacific States, the Great Lakes, Ohio, and the American Federation collude to halt the natural progression of economics. Our agents have seen and heard enough to know that a peaceful transition will never occur.

      American workers, now is your time to rise up against your task masters.

    Farquad is an average Yahelian citizen who enjoys raising falcons in his off time, but shock struck this man one fateful dawn. As Farquad was letting his current falcon Lunk our for a fly around the beach, he noticed something peculiar. Lunk was circling around a small area of the beach. As Farquad rushed over to see what was wrong, to his surprise, he found a man, victim of another Yahelian shark attack. Farquad used his goat horn to signal for help, and luckily, this mans life was able to be saved. Farquad has been deemed a hero by locals, and he has even received the key to his home city, Gorboncogunkomonchodo. With this attack, Yahel has taken to the ocean to deliver justice. Forces have been dispatched to relocate areas of overpopulated sharks to more sparse areas. Shipments of live fish are being released away from beaches to lure sharks away and it has become open season for fishers. For many, shark fin soup is back on the menu. Bounties have been put out on sharks to help trim down numbers, but by law, carcasses cannot be dumped back into the ocean. All of the shark must be used in some way. A limit has been set to avoid any problems that might arise.

    Deputies in Qatar found Abdul Baguqan, 33, asleep at the wheel of his truck with his foot on the brake. After he was awakened, Larson began to get out of the truck without putting it in park. Deputies were forced to jump in and stop the truck from moving. However, during his sobriety test, Larson began to dance while attempting to prove he wasn't drunk. The move was a fail as deputies charged him with DUI anyway. Abdul is quoted saying "Man I ain't mother f***ing druuuunk man you gotta got of an Arabs back mans just tryna make a life of himself smh god f***ing cops in this place man, not even bouta watch be boogie ooh yeah yeah watch my mfn moves man watch em."

Foat Gucker is also known for his other albums such as "Coconut water tastes nasty", "I can't feel my right leg", and "Why the mall free samples gotta be so small". Tickets for the concerts will begin sales a month from now, and the show will be held in Qatar for FG's "Bruhs".

      Formal Declaration of War


      The capitalists of the Texan Confederacy have worked under the mindset that their blatant attacks against our people would be ignored. That our people would forget the brutal attack on a civilian vessel back in April. The constant incursions into our rural communities. The land theft during our scism from the American Federation. We haven't. We will never forgive the actions of imperialists. Today, September 3rd, 1991 marks the day that workers in the Confederacy received their freedom. The Niagara Union hereby declares war on the Texan Confederacy.

Minutes after the cut deals with Lasir, the countries oil fields mostly invested in by HLR, have caught on fire. Reports say that the undertrained Lasirian engineers mistakenly used faulty equipment. HLR lost the 5% stake in the company due to Lasirian officials leaving the deal, however, the oil field fires would have caused a bankruptcy anyway.

Construction of Lasirian infrastructure has also halted. The Landersvichian construction company Gaulbert Erbauer has ended all construction. They have decided to destroy all equipment and resources under their control. Due to the broken contract and lack of pay, Gaulbert Erbauer workers also destroyed the roads, building, and bridges they developed.

HLR has pulled from South Asia - they had been the only financial bank allowed in the market, they quickly recalled all outstanding loans and, for those who could not pay, they reposed as much as they could. The Pharmaceutical company funded by HLR has had all of its equipment and product reposed.

Kaiser Nicholas XII has stated that "I am surprised they destroyed such a lucrative deal."

Landersvichian troops in the country quickly cleared the base of all things valuable and flew the assets back. The base was promptly destroyed and troops returned home.


(Top Secret)


150 Landersvichian service men have stayed behind to instill revolt.

Action Phase II


Economic/Civil - Counterfeit smuggling continues. At 01:00 09-05 Landersvichian oil assets had be shipped to Europe. A portion of Landersichian naval forces will blockade Niagaran trade through the North Atlantic; Orders are to stop and turn ships around - if vessels continue on, they should be sunk. Texan refugees are permitted to seek asylum in Landersvich - flights from the Landersvichian North American HQ commence immediately.

Military - 25,000 Landersvichian troops are being flown into Texas. A volunteer group of 1000 men, already stationed and trained in Texas will help the war effort. Highly skilled in Alpine fighting, the troops will set up secretive AT and AA defenses in the Appalachian region. Landersvichian corp or engineers have been given to go ahead to destroy roads, bridges, and utilities. All major points of crossing from the Catawba and Wateree rivers have been destroyed. The 1,000 Landersvichian troops will defend the rough terrain of the Appalachians under Texan colors.

Landersvichian troops will hold until further notice.

Corporations buying out enormous swathes of land.
Public response mixed
Provinces across the Confederacy have begun to sell massive swathes of land to private corporations as a means of generating a large influx of revenue. Along with the large corporate ownership of land comes an increased responsibility of the parties involved to develop their own governmental structures. So far, multiple international brands such as Philip Morris International, Costco Wholesale, the Sony Corporation, TD Bank, Pfizer, and The Vanguard Group have been reported to have bought packets of land with some gaining up to 80% of provinces.

Why are these provinces selling themselves out to corporations, you might ask? The most plausible answer is the immediate economic windfall of signing land over to massive corporations, but also the investment that a corporation will develop land to its maximum efficiency, offering its citizens a better way of life and creating a long-term trend of economic increase in a region. Of course, the decision is not for all. A few provinces, most notably the Miao Territories, have detested the sales. The Miao Delegate, Thath Pramoj, said:
What is occurring right now is the obvious predation of legitimate governments by corporate interests. I am, quite frankly, appalled at how so many citizens could be giving away their rights to cold-hearted companies who only care about brutal efficiency and have no true morals. The Miao Territories will continue an adamant stance of opposition against this, and we hope we can persuade other provinces to join our protest.

So far, the lists of provinces that have undergone the land sales are:
Bangkok,
Saigon,
Lesser Cambodia,
North Malay,
Battambang,
Eastern Pattaya,
Southern Pattaya,
Greater Andaman Isles,
and Long An.

On a much more microscopic level, it seems that the public response is mixed. Some citizens applaud the change, welcome and hopeful for a better future. Other are fearful at what they describe as a "blatant surrender of liberties." All will come clear with time, and until then, c'est la vie.

Commonwealth Department of Defense
Military Report



09/16/1991


Gentlemen,

Mr. Langerud of the Ohioan diplomatic board has returned with a proposition from President Tyrone Miller of Ohio.
President Miller suggested that Ohio and the Great Lakes Commonwealth cooperate in fortifying our borders to prepare for any suspected foreign attack.
President Brusseau and several defense advisers have agreed to this.

Henceforth, the construction of the "Huron Curtain" (as some are calling it) is underway. A half a mile of concrete, pillboxes, razor wire, mines and much more. This pattern is being constructed around all of our borders with foreign nations. Supporting the fortifications are overlapping sections of artillery, MLRS and AA grids.

Along with the construction of the Huron Curtain, already standing military bases like Camp Ripley and Volk Field Airbase are receiving more funding for increased capabilities and force projection. We have already commissioned the construction of two more squadrons (48) F/A-18's to be built. Their completion time is unknown but we believe we can get assistance from the United Pacific States.

President Brusseau and the Senate have passed the "Downtrodden Scarlet" act. Anti-propaganda measures are being taken upon the general populace, as well as anti-communist education in the schools and public. Hopefully this will encourage the populace to enlist and or fortify their opinions against socialism, communism and the like.

We will not bow, we will not bend, and we will not break.

Hoc erit defendere



-General Wallabi

Commonwealth Department of Defense
Military Report

TOP SECRET



09/16/1991


Greetings member of the defense committee,

Some of the higherups in the government have decided to throw in something a little extra on the side of "Downtrodden Scarlet".
The construction of several secret subterranean facilities throughout the Commonwealth. Everything you read from henceforth will be need to know, and you will keep it to yourselves.

Contingency Plan: Lady Liberty
This plan will only come into effect in a State of ours that has been taken from us and is under foreign occupation. If that outcome is likely, essential government staff and defense personnel will evacuate to one of several of these locations located within their State. Inside these facilities are the means to lead a resistance against the Red Tide. There will be communication equipment with other facilities, rations, as well as arms and munitions to effectively lead a resistance. There will be ample space within these facilities to train and equip freedom fighters or operators.

Godspeed Gentlemen,

Hoc erit defendere

The Trudeau Chronicles
Chapter 1
Part 1


September 19, 1991
Image
Justin entered the train with a sigh of relief. The whole day he had spent making speeches, and answering questions on the surprising integration of America's greatest nations.

It was finally time to relax and pray to Allah, the beloved God.

He made the way to his cabin and entered, and donned hijab on entrance. The room was decorated in Yahelian flags, Indian robes, and Inuit emblems. Just the way he liked it. On the wall to the right a GF3D poster hung, right by his queen-sized bed. Justin kneeled down beside his Benis Shrine and began to pray. :bow:


“Oh Great and Powerful Allah,
I am only a servant of Peoplekind.
Let your power help me,
Weather it be by flesh;
Or by Goat Fucker 3D.


Justin takes his gameboy, and continues the ritual with a long game of GF3D, as the train departs from Huusun Iqqal.

“Mr. Trudeau”
“Mr. Trudeau?”

Trudeau woke up with a jolt, smacking his head on the cabin roof in the process. It was SirGender Neutral Pronoun Kullahk, his butler, at the Door.

“What is it, Kullahk. You have interrupted my praying session.”

“Chief… you weren't pr-”

“Shhh… Quiet, Kullak”

Justin put a finger to Khullaks lips.

“Alright, Jimbo. But I came here to inform you we are near Kubek. It is time to get ready for the transfer”

Trudeau dressed into his Indian garments and looked out the window, watching the rolling hills of the St. Lawrence Valley pass by.

“Khullak.”

“Yes?”

“We’ve got a long week ahead of us”

      CONFIDENTIAL: LEVEL 10 PERSONNEL OR ABOVE



      Plan Ragnarök and Prussian Occupation
      The first stage of Plan Ragnarök was successful, with the Prussian defenses annihilated and the Landersvichian base removed from Prussian soil. Now with the quick advance of the troops toward the capital we look to seize the presidential palace and start a dialogue with the Leader of New Prussia's opposition to institute a transitional government and start planning a more pro-Hulm approach to the country's politics. To secure the stability of the region is vital we start establishing a strong bond with the local security force by contacting the army and the Head of the Police forces. Orders are to no hurt the civilians but rather to establish as positive of a contact as possible.
      The plan is for the new government to claim the previous deal with Landersvich as unconstitutional and start pushing the country toward a more Hulm-dependent economic position as a consumer of Hulmean industrial products. More to come in a future document.

      Plan Lancea Longini
      With plan Ragnarök, the problem with the presence of Landersvich troops on Prussian soil was solved with relatively low involvement of the austrian troops. This and the declarations of peace from the country do not mean that the Landersvichians do not pose any more a threat. The nation needs to be ready in case the Imperial Army decides to make an offensive in our nation. We are now tasked with planning an effective defensive plan to avoid being unprepared in the worst case scenario. In the meantime, alert on that front is to be kept high, both on the home front and on the borders that our allies share with the nation.

      Image

      Following the occupation of New Prussia by Hulm forces the New Prussian president has sent out letter to all members of the Pact stating that the Republic of Hulm has violated the Pact by using military force on a member of the pact. Furthermore, the National Draft has been initiated and New Prussian Military and Police are to ignore claims made by the Hulm Occupiers about this being a willing occupation and to stay loyal to Parliament and the President. Furthermore, multiple bombings can be heard going outside of the Presidential Plaice as there is a major battle underway between Prussian Loyalist and Hulm occupiers.

News From Madrid


After recent conflicts across Europe, President Gaona released a short statement to the nation and EC stating
"To my fellow Alicians and Europeans, the peace and prosperity of Europe has been threatened once more. Not by foreign powers but by our neighbors in our own backyard. With this being said, Alicia will assist Hulm and the rest of the EC in securing peace and economic stability across Europe by any means necessary. I can assure members of the EC, the pact is strong and thriving and together we can be a stronger Europe, united."

This comes after Hulm bombed Prussian bases while being assisted by Alicia. Alician ships began patrols and exercises in the Adriatic sea and air patrols over Hulm and New Prussia.


The upcoming Presidential debate is set within the next month but polls show President Gaona still ahead. Senator Bowman has increased attack ads but still his label of a power hungry Senator stays firm. Political analyst across the board have predicted the conservative party shall keep control of the senate and possibly pick up seats but will not gain control of the house.


Secretary of State and V.P candidate Eliza Cortez has been busy with appearances across Alicia. She recently commented on the recent conflicts across the Americas stating "War is never a easy thing to go through with, I'm sure the president has his plans with the situations." Her stance remains unknown. The president has remained silent on who he will replace Cortez with in the state department if elected.

October 1, 1991

Pérez faces all-time lowest approval ratings
The embattled president faces a newly inflamed opposition and a disloyal party

Image
President Tito Pérez
SANTA ROSA - A new Canal 5 poll places President Tito Pérez's approval rating at only 28% and his disapproval rating at 63%.

The President has become embattled due to his seemingly reckless behavior in regards to his channels of support. The war in Barnetia was unpopular with Pérez's base and cost him a lot of support in the Congress, and the seemingly pressured resignation of General Paul Oppenheimer as Minister of Defense caused most of the supporters of the war from across the aisle to drop their support for Pérez altogether.

The same poll also gauged the support for the occupation of Barnetia, with 55% approving the efforts of the military to restore order in Barnetia and only 40% approving Pérez's stated strategy. 59% of respondents claimed to trust the military more than Pérez and only 30% claimed to trust Pérez more than the military.

At the same time in his first term, President Raul Romero had an approval rating of 65%. President Lorenzo Lestrange had an approval rating of 74%.

Hard line social democrats blame the lack of approval on Pérez's lack of action on his campaign promises. The President campaigned in 1989 and 1990 on a platform of democratic reform and social welfare. So far, Pérez has little to show for either, despite his party controlling both houses of Congress.

Senator Nico Anjema (PSD, Rut-B), a vocal critic of the incumbent president, disavows Pérez as a "opportunist and a warmonger."

"He has nothing to show besides a bloody war in Barnetia," Anjema told Canal 5 late last month. "Pérez is not a real social democrat. He was an independent for all his life and joined the party just as a platform to get elected. He doesn't actually believe in social democracy. He just wants his name in the history books."

Anjema suggested that Pérez should resign and let Carmella Grosso, the Vice President, take over.

"Grosso has a real track record of being a true progressive," Anjema added. "Our country would be in a much better state with her in charge."

Pérez has also been blamed for the economic stagnation facing Santa Rosa. The country has seen the lowest GDP growth in decades since he took office, and having taken no efforts to pass any economic reforms, Pérez is poised as largely responsible for the inaction.

As the end of the fiscal year is approaching and Pérez's party loyalists fail to wrestle the dissenters for majority control of Congress, many are skeptical for whether or not Pérez will have the support to pass a budget for 1992.
