STATEMENT REGARDING RECENT NOMINATIONS

There will no doubt be much chatter about my two recent nominations - Windjammer to the Supreme Court and Talleyrand to the Department of Federal Elections.

I will allow the confirmation process to handle any questions, concerns or deliberations with regard to the former, but the latter, in my opinion, deserves an explanation.

The game as a whole is sorely lacking interested talent at this juncture. There have been times where a majority of my cabinet has been vacant because literally nobody wished to fill specific positions. The game's downturn in activity has contributed to this substantially.

Talleyrand approached me about serving as SoFE. I had approached multiple others prior and after the fact; of everyone I asked, all of them either didn't respond or proceeded to de-register from the game (go figure!).

As such, I have accepted Talleyrand's offer - under very specific conditions.

  • His recent fascination with trolling the game cease
  • Any desire to bend or twist election law in order to cause controversy, instability or hilarity is extinguished
  • He was to put forward a list of potential "election loopholes" that have existed for ages, as an offering of the types of loopholes he might be able to potentially exploit as SoFE (introduced in the executive slot by me just moments ago)
  • Additionally, he has asked me to ask the Senate to soften or repeal the ballot editing rule
  • If such loopholes are not addressed by the Senate in time for the next election, he has the authority to utilize these loopholes as he sees fit
  • On all potential matters either not explicitly covered in existing election law or not encountered in the past and/or subject to precedent, he shall invoke what I deem "the Homely Rule", in which leniency and common-sense on the matter shall be utilized, making the judgement call that leads to the least disruption
  • Any breach of these terms by Talleyrand before, during or after an election will result in his immediate dismissal, even if it throws the process into chaos

This will allow us to clean up potential loopholes or processes that may need to be covered in the ConCon and beyond and provide us with an elections officer for the election that is closing in on us. I understand this is a controversial choice, but with nobody willing to take the role, I have done the best that I can in the situation.

Talleyrand is adept at such tasks and has served as Deputy SoFE prior. However, if a trolling spree of the electoral process were to unfortunately manifest with his leadership at the helm, then I hope the game at-large will understand the need for me to act swiftly and will support any necessary decisions being made in such context.

TURNING THE TIDE AGAINST DAESH IN LIBYA

With much unrest throughout the Middle East, it is easy to overlook any one of the numerous crises currently unfolding. One notable crisis that has been causing great unrest is the one in Libya, in which Daesh has made substantial gains in the country over the past several months.

I have always stood for non-interventionist causes - in fact, many conservatives who voted for me and have supported me throughout my career have done so as a result of my strong stance in this arena - and I will continue to adhere to this concept. However, providing assistance to our allies in times of need does not fly in the face of my principles.

The State Department currently is in negotiations with the Libyan government to determine how Atlasia can best help in an auxiliary capacity in the fight against ISIS. In the coming days, I intend to announce plans for how we will do just that. Recent events in Sirte and beyond show that the tide is turning against Daesh in Libya. We owe it to the Libyan people, who have pushed over the past several years against extremism and toward a new, optimistic, democratic future, to prevent Daesh from turning their country into another Syria or worse.
