Department Change: Homeland Security
Secretary of Media NewAzazel
We at the Cerb Administration have some distressing news to present. During a raid against one of AFA's recruitment camps on the eUS border, DHS Secretary Slade Cash sustained heavy injury. This occurred while he was saving several DHS agents and rigging the charges to blow. While Slade Cash will live, his recovery will take some time, and at present he is residing at Walter Reed for the remainder of the term.
Thankfully, we have found another capable DHS Secretary to lead in his absence. Kemal Ergenekon, a cabinet official in several administrations and one of the main promoters of the DHS, will be taking over as Secretary of Homeland Security. Kemal is intelligent, dedicated, and will perform this job to the fullest of his capabilities. We hope that all Americans wish him luck in his performance, and for the quick recovery of Slade Cash. The smooth transition of this Department continues to show the strength and flexibility of this administration when dealing with crisis.

Department Update: Chief Technology Officer

I have had the pleasure of working with MikeOntry and finding out a little about himself and about the department he runs. Amazingly, Mike has had no experience whatsoever in government, yet he was given a role as charge of an entire department. In fact, the Technology Department is a brand new department just like the DHS brought on by POTUS Cerb. Mike Ontry goes on to explain, “This is my first job. I believe my in game poll system helped to get me this job.”
The main focus of the Technology Department has a lot to do with coding various programs. The work is highly varied as literally this department works in tandem with every other department that needs to have programs coded for their specific needs. Mike and his team also specializes in tech support in case one of the programs malfunctions, or just for general questions that technology un-savvy government officials may not know the answers to.
I asked Mike, "What are your goals for this term?"
However he was quite secretive and couldn't reveal much. So he just wants to say something simple to everyone and goes on to state that his “goal is to simplify some select tasks needed by certain government departments.” However, he faces one challenge that he told me would be difficult that is very interesting. One of the big problems right now is finding a way to locate and contact newborn eUSA citizens in an efficient manner, right now nothing really exists. Mike is going to have to persevere on that one.
For the future we can count on the Technology department to step things up. One thing they are focusing for the near future is an in-game poll for “6th parties”. Mike explains, “I support fingerguns' idea of letting the top 4 do their own polls like they have been doing them and setting up an in game poll for all the 6th parties and unaffiliated citizens to vote in. Her article is here.”
War Map & Analysis
Press Corps Staff Writer Hale26
Good news everyone- Hawaii is back in American hands.
After a clean-sweep win for America, Hawaii has successfully re-entered the union and given Argentina the initiative in their war on Chile. (As explained last issue.) Though we've lost our NE against Chile, we can still fight them through our MPPs with Argentina and Australia. This being where we will be fighting for the next few days, I'll do a quick report on the state of those fronts.
On the main front of this war we have Argentina and Australia fighting Chile. Both these nations have launched NE attacks against Chile in New South Wales and Southern Australia (respectively) which were very hard fought. Despite best allied efforts, both these nations lost their battles against Chile. This means that Chile now has the initiative on both Argentina and Australia, so counter-attacks are expected in coming hours. (If not already underway)
At present there are 2 RWs underway while we wait for Chile to attack Australia and Argentina. The first one, an allied assault, is a RW in Northern Territory (Chile.) Australia is losing this battle 29-15 at present.
The second RW, an enemy assault, is a RW in Auckland (Argentina.) This RW could cost Argentina a 20% food bonus if successful. Thankfully, Kiwi rebels are losing the battle 61-16.
This front is in the "Argentine Empire" as this writer fondly calls it. Argentina, being the power it is, has annexed parts of Bolivia, Chile and Peru in S.A. Meaning that the nation has to fight numerous battles at home when stepping out abroad. (America had this problem during Glove's war on Indo)
Multiple fronts make it hard for Argentina to keep all of its territories.
That being said, the Empire State has been doing very well as of late. First capturing 50% of Paraguay after the nation declared war (Presumably to help its Chilean allies), and fending off numerous RWs.
