[POTUS] RWs, and MUs, and competitions, oh my!

Day 2,006, 17:38 Published in USA USA by Artela

Good day eAmerica.

It’s been an eventful few days. We’ve had so much going on as a country, and in the background all the usual diplomatic talks and planning that go on as a matter of course have still needed to be maintained. There is quite a bit going on, so this is a summary article to point at those things everyone should know about even if they have been covered elsewhere.

Once again we tried to RW Aquitaine to remove the rubber bonus from Serbia, however it seems they had more support than we did and so we lost despite valiant efforts all around from both US-AIM and USAF forces combined with some of our oldest allies and even some foreign mercenary groups. A special shout out from me to the Germans here, who were stunning, helping us by running Arm America on our behalf with the help of some of our Quartermasters and some of their own supplier staff.

The Military Unit competition continues apace, and some American units are doing extremely well. Everyone should be trying their best to hit from MUs either in the top 50 internationally, or with a good chance of making it up there with a little extra support.

There is a lot more detail on both these topics in The White House Press Release.

Now that our current chances of RWing Aquitaine away from Serbia have evaporated, we have to thank France for making it possible for the attempts and letting us use them to keep an NE open in case we took the region. It seems only fair, though, that we now return all their regions to them to allow them to have a Congress for the next month, and so I ask everyone not to fight for the USA in the battles to return these regions, and to fight for France if a battle looks to be going the wrong way. I know there was some confusion at the start of the first RW as it was started early and as a result communications had not been fully made to anyone to make them aware that the regions were to be returned; for that I apologize, but everyone should now be aware that we are not holding onto those regions.

Just a reminder that there are other methods of two-way communication for anyone in the eUSA to make use of. As well as the national media and my inbox we also have national forums (link at the bottom of the article), national IRC channels and a national radio show once a week.

Find out more in the article recently published here: Federal Communications

And the full eNPR archive, dating back to the very beginning of the show, can be found in the eNPR Archive

One initiative being run by the Departments of Interior and Education is the Mister and Miss eAmerica competition. Some of you may remember back to the farce that was the Miss eRepublik competition not too long ago - this is an attempt to stop eUSA being in a similar position again. All eAmericans who feel they would like to represent the eUSA in this capacity if similar international competitions are held again are encouraged to enter. It’s all just a bit of fun, and the details can be found here: Mister and Miss eAmerica competition

And finally, I’ve been asked to repeat a list of some of the key members of the cabinet for you with links, so here it is.

vCP - Duncan Crowe -
Chief of Staff - Molly Emma -
Secretary of State - NewAzazel -
Secretary of War - Cromstar -
Secretary of Interior - Othere -
Secretary of Education - Mazzy Cat -
Secretary of Media - Paul Proteus -
(The full list is as published earlier in the term)

All the best

An article, finally.

Artela Day 2,007, 05:49

There have been articles from other gov departments - the CP newspaper is not the only method of communication... see links in the article : P

Iamnameless Day 2,007, 08:30

What you say is true Madam President, yet the CP paper is the only one that carries the weight of being the CP's paper. You have a good cabinet with a good media presence, but there's no substitute for hearing from the POTUS directly. o7

Bucephalus92 Day 2,007, 10:16

I'm sure you've done a great job of pressing all the right buttons and maintaining our foreign affairs, but I joined this game during presidential terms such as Gaius Julius' and Josh Frost's, I expect more. Our country is aimless and stagnated, we need a direction, we need some course that we can rally behind, in times like these I hold the president accountable for giving us something worth fighting for, and your not.

Artela Day 2,007, 13:19

Bucephalus92: I'm doing the best I can with what was handed to me, but we are in an alliance and that alliance also has some goals. It sucks, because yes, as CP I get blamed when we end up with nowhere to fight except MPP battles. However, we're trying to plan some more NE action right now (will take a few days to get in place). It's also not helped when most people seem to want to sit back and snipe rather than join in and fix : )

Bucephalus92 Day 2,007, 17:01

I understand the limitations placed on us by being in CoT, however I believe there is still room for us to have some fun for ourselves for a change. We have the third highest damage output in the world and have been consistently fighting for CoT interests for four+ months, if they don't value our support enough to support us in return then whats the point of being in CoT in the first place?

Why bother trying when you can't be impeached anyway?

Artela Day 2,007, 09:19

Because I owe it to eAmerica

Mr Immanuel Kant
Mr Immanuel Kant Day 2,007, 09:52

But you know you can't be impeached regardless of how badly you're doing, so the motivation isn't the same.

And I do understand that's Ajay's fault before anyone says anything ; )

Really bad timing...

With the tournament going on and France as our NE, we really need that extra damage...

Just saying it is horrible timing, but will comply non-the-less...

Artela Day 2,007, 09:20

France ceased to be our NE when the war closed against them.

Darian Dracona
Darian Dracona Day 2,007, 09:42

Reaaaaalllllyyyyy bad timing...

Planning out how it could fall apart due to game mechanics at the most in opportune time...

The Mike Day 2,007, 12:48

Darian, next time Plato let's you know in advance that such an "opportunity" is to be introduced, please, let the rest of us peasants know, so that we could plan better : P

Artela Day 2,007, 13:21

Darian, as the The Mike says, not even CPs are forewarned ahead of the population about these "specials" these days.

Darian Dracona
Darian Dracona Day 2,008, 07:05

So we were just told about the tournament the day it started??? I find that a little hard to believe... Just saying.... It is still horrible timing whether or not you want to admit it...

The Mike
The Mike Day 2,008, 14:10

Leave Artela alone.

How do you expect her to remember which battles she starts, and on whose side we should fight? I have it on good authority Artela meant to write an article saying "fight for FRANCE in AQUITAINE", but she was simply too busy picking out new wallpaper for the Oval Office. How can you expect a basically noob President, with only 3 prior CP terms, to know that once you start an important battle, you should tell someone besides your own cabinet?

In the future, IMHO, such messages should be restricted to an IRC channel (which will not be announced, for security reasons), eNPR, and direct telepathic communication between Artela and each American citizen.

This will inform 100% of the American people, AND hide our true intentions from our enemies.

Problem Solved!

Don't let facts get in the way of some spin eh?
(We didn't start the RW in Brittany, the French did, without telling us, and ahead of schedule)

Jon Barack Bluejacket
Jon Barack Bluejacket Day 2,008, 13:52

I actually think you're one of the better Presidents we've had.

I know that humans make mistakes, and we can't ask the POTUS to be awake and on duty 24/7.

But given the abuse heaped on independent MU's for not cooperating, not following orders, fighting against whatever whack-job alliance Congress has tied to us, I simply could not resist the delicious temptation to poke fun at the Gov't, seemingly caught off guard on this occasion.

We're all capable of error, and can all work on our communication skills. That's all I was trying to point out.

Delyruin Day 2,007, 23:36

I'm underwhelmed
