Unity Election and Tricks
Secretary of Media NewAzazel
Where there is unity there is always victory. - Publilius Syrus
As you may know by now, Inwegen has been selected to be the Unity Candidate. We would like to thank all of the parties that participated in this process, including the numerous Sixth Parties that cooperated with the Top 5 Parties. We would especially like to thank rainy sunday for all the hard work she put into organizing the electoral college system for the sixth parties. A lot of people joined in this process, and despite their being flaws to the system, this is still much better than its implementation. I understand the concerns about the Unity Process, but we will continue to perfect it and make it more inclusive if we have to use the system again.
And for those of you who continue to doubt our claims about AFA, please look no further than its leader. As you can see by this article, RGR tried to have a fake Inwegen mass message the parties to trick you into voting for Hanibal LA. Not to mention RGR’s attempt to garner foreign votes, which was rejected by our new ally. While Hanibal LA likes to distance himself from this, you have to remember he is carrying Reagan’s banner behind him. You can also read Inwegen’s article on his Unity Candidate selection alongside a personal conversation with RGR. You can really see how stable AFA’s leadership is, can’t you? Not to mention the fact that an AFA presidency would lack control of congress, control of funds, and control of our armed forces. A president who does not command the respect of our military and government will go nowhere.
While you may disagree with the unity process, and you may disagree with the choice of Inwegen, you should not deny the facts that AFA would be the worst possible future for this country. Inwegen has assembled a strong and capable cabinet full of new players and new ideas. This month will definitely hold a lot of changes and a lot of surprises, and we will be sure to keep you in the loop as best we can. As always, the WHPR will report information regularly and accurately.
MU Highlight: Rogue Squadron
Deputy Secretary of Media DokJon
The youngest USAF branch Rogue Squadron is our last but not least featured MU in this Highlight series. Though it's not the most fortunate group of soldiers that went through smooth command transition, the RS stands by America as a successful MU that specializes in Division 3.
Rogue Squadron was created during Israel Stevens' first Presidential term. At the time, the USA's weakest division was D3, and RS was created to mobilize and bolster the weak division. Currently, RS is comprised of a little less than 50 people mainly in D3, but they also have members from D2 and D4.
batata134, or Potato, started his career in RS as a platoon officer. He stepped up to the XO position when the original CO went missing. There, he helped the new CO stabilize the unit from lack of leadership for a brief period of time. To make matters worse, the new CO ended up becoming inactive as well, and RS stopped functioning properly as a unit. There were even talks among the officials about dismantling it altogether.
However, Potato and his officers never gave up. They stepped up, reached out for commune holders outside of RS to set up supply system for their members, adapted a program similar to ST6's entry program, and even restructured the platoons to add in a training division. With their regular appearance in the Media, RS has now settled down finally, and the guy who made it possible, Potato was made the CO of the unit.
"What we need the most at the moment is soldiers. We have the money and communes to provide them. We just need the soldiers to fill those spots. If you are interested in an MU that is a close knit group of people or looking for an MU with a lot of growth potential then Rogue Squadron is the place for you. As always, ✯✯✯ GO ROGUE ✯✯✯" -Rogue Squadron Commanding Officer Potato

War Map & Analysis
Deputy Secretary of Media Hale26
Firstly, America has declared war on the R.O.C.
Better known as Taiwan, war was declared on this nation not out of animosity to the EDEN member, but more to help our ally Brazil. Brazil, a long time ally and one of the truest bros ever, NEd Taiwan for a few reasons. Those reasons (The bad relations with Romania and need of a challenge) were justifiable in our administration's eyes, hence why we said we'd support Brazil.
So of course, when Brazil started to lose battles against a nation we really didn't have strong feelings against, we gladly jumped into the fray. The goal of this front is to divert Taiwan's resources- nothing less, not much more. That being said, we are looking into better ties with both Japan and eS.K. Japan, a much unappreciated bro who supported us in the CANAM war, will be interesting to talk to. As will eS.K, though we know less of them.
In terms of our relations with EDEN (and China specifically)...eh, it's complicated. Though we are on opposite sides with EDEN and eChina, we bear no real hate against them. I mean, relations will be awkward, but I believe things can settle over in time. So to be blunt- If Serbia was air striking eChina, we wouldn't stand by and laugh at their misfortune.
Moving on, Taiwanese forces have recently launched their assault on Hawaii after our failed assault on their nation. Please defend against this.
Next item on the agenda, some will notice that we have just signed MPPs with Bulgaria and Chile. These MPPs were signed because, as our Secretary of State stated, we are willing to work with any non-TWO nations. We will see how these alliances go for now.
Lastly, our TW with Mexico is over. So please, STOP TRYING TO TAKE THEIR LAND. Strangely enough, the Mexicans were very easy to work with for this TW. I mean, some things went wrong, but things were level headed on both sides. Nice to see relations improving down south.
As you know, foreign affairs are crucial to the success of the eUnited States. We are a powerful nation on our own, but without allies like Brazil, Russia, Argentina, China, etc etc, we would be overrun. These relationships are more crucial to the United States than ever before. So how can you as a citizen of the eUS get involved? There are still several vacancies left in our ambassador program, and you could become that missing link between the eUS and our next ally.
As our Secretary of State, Israel Stevens, says: "Apply to be an ambassador! See the world! Meet hot chicks!"
