New President, New Priorities
Secretary of Media NewAzazel
First, the WHPR would like to congratulate Inwegen on becoming our new President. He beat Hanibal LA by a large margin and has already set to work on his new term. As you will read in the next segment, Inwegen has stacked his cabinet with a lot of capable individuals, both young and old. While some cabinet officials are remaining in their current positions, there have been quite a few shakeups and a lot of newer players are getting involved. This month is sure to hold a lot of new developments domestically, in foreign affairs, and hold new issues to address and problems to overcome. We hope you will support us during the trying times, and that we can address your concerns when your expectations are not fully met.
President Inwegen during cabinet interviews
As you can read in Inwegen's first address, there will be some new priorities and new tasks to accomplish. Media will be improved for all departments, so you won't just be hearing from the WHPR or eNPR anymore. Expect to see updates from State, Defense, Interior, and Education much more frequently. The WHPR will continue doing its job of presenting vital information and updates on domestic and world affairs to the best of our ability. If there is something you would like to see our government present or the WHPR to talk about, please feel free to contact me. I will see to it that our government provides information to the best of our ability.
Another big project for this term is Vice President Molly Emma's Vice Presidential Panel for Education and Empowerment. This panel seeks to educate the populace about the true state of the eUS both domestically and internationally and teach people about how they can become empowered, active members of this great nation without having to invest more time than they are comfortable with. Expect to see more on this topic from the Vice President herself and possibly from other government mediums. We will need the contributions of many eAmericans to make this a successful and thriving project, so stay tunned for more updates.

War Map & Analysis
Deputy Secretary of Media Hale26
Good news everyone- We have recaptured Hawaii.
Following our failed "diversionary" attack on Hokaido, Taiwanese forces assaulted Hawaii and quickly took the island over. To be honest, we had no idea the ROC would actually win any of these battles. But now that they have, we're going to take the RoC war a bit more seriously.
Moving on, I'll be describing the situation in the Pacific by breaking down the war into 3 fronts. Here is the current state of each one..
Taiwan has, ever since the start of this war, had to worry about its Northern Empire. Its usual 15 territories provided the nation with 5 bonuses before the war. However, thanks to Resistance fighters from our over-looked friend Japan, eS.K and various allied mobiles, the ROC has lost around 5 territories. Allied mobiles are currently preparing to attack Taiwanese choke point regions to cut a few bonuses after creating various choke-points during the first wave of RWs.
Where the war originally began, you could argue, is the Southern Front. Here Brazil captured Visayas from the Philippines and NEd Taiwan VIA their bases in Palawan and Luzon. Back to present tense, Brazil was kicked out of the Philippines a few days ago after a failed invasion of Southern Taiwan. Brazil then NEd the Philippines again, captured Visayas and Palawan and was preparing to NE Taiwan. However, the RoC retreated from their base in Luzon, meaning that Brazil needs to re-NE the Philippines because their last NE wore off (they had run out of Philippines to fight till the RW.)This buys the RoC valuable time, and more resources to use for the Northern and Eastern Fronts.
This is our front, America. We have just recently fended off an attack on California, and liberated Hawaii as described earlier in the article. American forces are now attacking Eastern Taiwan. Get in it NOW for the U.S!
----Inter-Branch Comment War----
Seal Team 6 has won the Comment War on the WHPR. Looks like the loudest RAWR will be having some extra bite with the Q7 tank winnings. Thanks to all who participated in this competition, you gave the WHPR some extra attention and we always love that.
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, Albania, 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!"
