I've already found my first intern (we'll sleep together) ^__^
First off, congratulations on defending our great nation against those that wish to take it for themselves and the nations they come from. There are enemies amongst us, yet we continue to band together in difficult circumstances to prove we are a United citizenry.
Today, I come to you with a bit of a backstory and a bit of a preview of the future. I hope you've grabbed a beverage (preferably alcoholic) and a snack (I quite enjoy a pretzel mix with drinks) to be your companions through this article. If not, please do so, sit back and relax.
The Old Tried and True. Great memories, but ineffective
As our esteemed President Cerb has outlined in today's article here, for far too long this nation has been simply defending itself against those who wish to do us harm both in war and in politics. I'm not here to tell you that I and others 'told you so' after numerous warnings throughout the years. What has happened in the past has past. But, let it be known that from here on out we have moved from simply defending to a combined effort of defence and attack.
Some may ask "Inwegen, you were the previous CIA Director, why is change occurring just now?" That is an excellent question and one easily answered. Many believe my friends and I to be elitist. Hell, we like to joke about it, but truth be told, we move and adapt to changes in the community just as the rest of you do. It was not up to me to unanimously change the way in which our ATO staff and community-at-large operates in situations like this. In fact, this is the largest PTO we've had to deal with in our own nation. It is a new battle in which there have been a few stumbles in adaptation, but we are on the front foot and continue to outmanoeuvre those who wish to do us harm.
So, we've up'd our firepower. With the newly formed Department of Homeland Security, we're taking a proactive approach of analysing and categorising friendly citizens and those eTerrorists that wish to promote and assist with the active PTO effort of those who have exploited the weak game mechanics of citizenship. We may not be able to stop them from acquiring citizenship and parties, but we have shown we can beat them in elections and we will continue to bar them from participation in our community. I can't give you much more than that at this time, but be on the lookout for more information from the DHS Director, Slade Cash.
I will also be overseeing discussions on The Unity Candidate process and ways in which we can make sure our national candidates for congress and the Presidency are chosen in a way that accurately reflects the direction in which the American community wishes to move. While I am not promising a system in which everyone is happy, for it is impossible to please all, I am promising an open dialogue between party presidents, the intelligence community, and our government.
On a personal note, I'd like to congratulate my good friend Pfeiffer on a successful term as President in difficult circumstances. He did a great job in trying times. Ask any former or current president and they will attest to the turmoil involved in the job.
I'd like to congratulate my new boss and future brother-in-law (really, people, this family has great genes. I'm going to have a smokin' hot wife) Cerb on another term and great cabinet. I know he and myself have an open door policy. If you have any concerns, please feel free to message us.
I also wish luck to my successor in the CIA, Artela. She has become a fantastic friend and a great asset to this community. She works tirelessly in the shadows to keep the nation secure and has been an amazing deputy and boss at times. Slade Cash and Artela have the potential to create a domestic defence force against eTerrorism and PTOs like we've never seen before. I look forward to the results of their cooperation.
Thanks and I look forward to a great term,
Vice President of the United States
