WHPR 2086 - August POTUS Election Roundup

Oblige has been elected President to an unprecedented (unconsecutive) fifth term of office.

Dateline: Tuesday, August 6, 2013 (Day 2,086)
Location: James S. Brady Press Room, The White House

Today’s Bigass WHPR:
: 1: Election: Op-Ed and New President
: 2: New Cabinet List (edited, complete)
: 3: Media Dept. Hits the Ground Running
: 4: eNPR Tonight Thursday at 18oo hours (tentative)
Video: Gene Autry, Back in the Saddle Again

Editor: George Armstrong Custer (aka Chief White Bull)

President Oblige is Back in the Saddle Again
Promises wide sweeping overhauls, fine tuning of Government

First of all, the election itself:
America enjoyed its first truly free and open Presidential election in.. well, a long, long time. The candidates were New Azazel, Oblige, HeapSeppo, the PTO candidate Dr. Walter Bishop (chickensguys), and rounding out the ballot Derphoof who displayed a Blocker avatar.
We must, however, remain ever vigilant, and continue to beat down Ajay/RGR's AFA Party in every election-- Party President, Congressional, and Country President. We'll be reading plenty about that in the coming weeks as the Party elections approach.
Only we, the American voters, can put an end to the long-distained Unity election process.
Only we can re-redefine the word "unity" to once again represent the picture of all Americans moving forward together.

Now, about our new President:
Although Oblige has served as President of our nation four consecutive terms, America is a different place now, well over a year later. Today's President Oblige faces a nation that has been wiped clean off the map, and is on the slow crawl back to sovereignty. A national military might which is not meeting its potential. A seemingly rudderless leadership, its components not communicating and coordinating efforts.
America needs to be rebuilt, in every sense, from the ground up.

No President can accomplish everything on their agenda with a great sweep of their magic wand. Oblige stated in his campaign that he'll start out slow but deliberate, and that repairing communications is a key first step. Communications between Cabinet members who are responsible for getting battles started on time has been a problem. Communications between USAF leaders; between the War Department and leaders of Military Units-- both USAF and Militias; between War and State and Alliance leaders. We cannot deliver on the battlefield, we cannot advance on the domestic front, without clear and direct communication between these key people. This this the absolute first item on the agenda of your new President.

America can look forward to direct communication with President Oblige. He's a fairly decent writer (uses punctuation and everything!) and will publish frequently in his own newspaper. He has a face for radio-- he'll be on eNPR at least one of its two broadcasts each week. And... I'm pretty sure.. he plans to do a couple of "Ask the President" sessions on IRC.

Now, if you really think about it... resolving communication issues, and opening the lines of communication between the President and the American people... just that alone can lead to resolving a lot of other issues, and work wonders for rebuilding America and moving us forward.

To learn more about what Oblige intends to do, see the last few editions of his newspaper leading up to the election:

Media Department to be Overhauled, Expanded
eNPR and Pony Express will return

The White House Press Report is the print media voice of the White House, representing the President and his Administration to America and the world.
It will be published very early every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, plus any occasion a Special Edition may be called for such as a National Mobilization, etc.
WHPR Staff is (currently, to start):
Secretary of Media George Armstrong Custer
DepSecMedia Tyler Buublar
Staff Writers Ludonarr, Irule777, Hale26

eNPR is the live radio show, also representing the White House, et al.
eNPR will again be a paid regular show with a consistent URL and hopefully more consistent service at BlogTalkRadio.
It is tentatively scheduled to air on BlogTalkRadio every Tuesday and Thursday at 18oo hours, for one hour live plus a bit of an afterparty.
Live listeners are urged to join us at #eNPR, type in any questions or comments, and may be invited to call in. On Demand listeners will hear the live show and the afterparty, made available shortly after the show ends.
eNPR Staff are (tentatively):
Director and Host: Cerb
Co-Hosts: Civil Anarchy, Custer, Oblige
and yes, there will be a Bigass POTUS Debate Show on Tuesday September 3rd.

The Pony Express newspaper is to be rechristened as "Recommended Reading" and will serve as a direct extension of the White House Press Report.
What has been a set of standard links in this newspaper-- the Departments of Interior and Education, and the Department of Defense-- will now be found at the Recommended Reading newspaper.
Recommended Reading will also include links to any articles posted by any other Cabinet Department, as well as by any Cabinet member. You'll also find the full list of Military and Militia Application links.
And, just as the Pony Express has done for somewhere around four years, Recommended Reading will spotlight the best of US media, and occasionally foreign media.. if there's any "best" to be had.
Tasked with this daunting assignment will be the lovely and talented Melissa Rose.
Her first edition of Recommended Reading may be published this evening.

Cosmetics: WHPR will present a mix of retro features (the silly top pics are back!) and new graphics-- note the grouping of mini-banners at the very bottom of the page. Those are "quick links" to Recommended Reading as well as other Government newspapers.
Returning are the ready-to-rock Shout, and the little subscript number at the very bottom of each edition (used for tracking subscriptions).



Not able to pull it together for a Tuesday night eNPR.
Tentatively shooting for Thursday night, with Hosts Cerb and Civil Anarchy, and Guests Oblige and Custer.
Check the Topic line at #eNPR for confirmation and details.

"The Oblige Plan to improve the American Community is to start with small changes to improve communication amongst the player leadership. That's it. Start small, and then incrementally improve."

"America enjoyed its first truly free and open Presidential election in.. well, a long, long time."

Good to know your definition of truly free and open.

George Armstrong Custer
George Armstrong Custer Día 2,086, 11:24

what's the beef? Parties held Primaries, and the Elites who have been orchestrating the Unity elections threw up their hands and let 'er rip as the cards fell on their own.. there was no need to interfere with the election, it ran quite naturally without meta-game screwing.

Ludonarr Día 2,086, 11:31

CWB, obviously they will not be free until all the meta folks go and die and the meek can inherit the Earth.

Ludo, what was again your former account and why were you banned?

Ludonarr Día 2,086, 12:14

Nice try Valiant Thor, never banned though. Just let the old guy drift off to sleep, then smothered him with a pillow.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Día 2,086, 12:47

Day 1: Registered on eRep and eUS Forum
Day 2: Joins USWP, has his first newspaper article published mentioning Vanek
Day 29: Makes it into congress on USWP ticket
You move pretty fast for a newbie, or is it just the American dream?

Ludonarr Día 2,086, 12:53

See, you know so much about me, I feel like I hardly know you 😉
Never said I didn't play before, just wasn't banned.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Día 2,086, 13:05

If you don't have anything to hide, then why the secrecy about your former eLife?

Ludonarr Día 2,086, 13:06

No secrecy, most everyone I work with knows who I was (though most wouldn't remember me) I was a no one then, i'm still mostly a no one now.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Día 2,086, 13:15

Well, for a no-one you certainly made quite an effort to start all over again. But I could also assume you are still playing your other account in another country, right?

Ludonarr Día 2,086, 13:45

Meh, couldn't remember the log in info. You could assume that, but a quick check of the fact that that citizen is dead would prove your assumption wrong.

I don't see unity as the problem our country faces, more like our alliance isn't strong enough to stand alone. We need better alliances, unfortunately we haven't been the most reliable partners in the past. Will take some real diplomacy to improve our tarnished rep I fear.
