2018 News in Omnibus
Former Consul of Economy Lucas Finch is Assassinated
Lucas Finch, Former Consul of Economy, was found dead in an apartment in Iploclas at 1a.m. this morning. He died in the emergency room of a nearby hospital 32 minutes after the attack. He was 39 years old. The five group of men that are the main suspects for the assassination have been captured and have admitted to the crime, claiming that they did it because Lucas Finch released the Vladimir Papers. The new Consul of Economy, David Poulin expressed his deepest sorrow for the passing of Lucas Finch and went to Lucas' home to inform his wife personally and later arrived in Cheles with the body of Lucas Finch, so that it could be laid to rest in respect.
March 15, 2018: Terrorists paid $25,000 each from Rhaegar Vladimir’s Campaign
The investigation into the LCP's involvement in the terrorist attacks that happened in February have not only figured out that they had all worked for Rhaegar Vladimir at sometime, along with the people who killed Lucas Finch. The investigation has also recently found that David Poulin, Consul of the Economy has paid both groups of terrorists 25,000 dollars, the terrorists that killed Marshal Seaver are sitting in jail awaiting for the investigation to be finished before they have a trial but the people that killed Lucas Finch, while also in jail they all received their money, this was one of the first actions that David Poulin did as Consul of the Economy directing 450,000 dollars into a michellaneous category when it was, as the investigation has revealed going to help the people that have killed Omnibus citizens and the politicians of Omnibus. Today, the Senate is closed in honor of Lucas Finch but Senators on their day off have expressed a need for David Poulin to be impeached on the day that they get back to the Senate,so that he can be in a trial for his crimes and potentially go to jail for embezzling money.
March 16, 2018: LCP Senators push police state policies
Legislation proposed today in the Senate indicates that some LCP Senators are planning on passing legislation that would increase the population in prisons. The law effectively creates a zero tolerance policy for all crimes, making it easier for judges to be able to put people in prison for the lowest of crimes. The Senators used this an example, if a protest turns violent like we have seen in countries close to the border, then they could be charged under the law in a court like a terrorist. That is just one part of this legislation, this is what the proposed legislation says. Other parts of the bill would allow people that are not born in Omnibus to receive a five year sentence and then deportation if they are caught at a protest, many of the other Senators are calling this legislation unconstitutional and want to stop it in its tracks but with a LCP majority that seems to be getting harder and harder especially since the approval rating for Rhaegar is only going up as the economy booms and promises to end the violence in the cities, which means that overall the people of Omnibus are going to trust what the LCP is doing, hence why they have voted them the majority party. But, when the legislation was put to a vote later that day after it was proposed it seems that the bill was destroyed with 17 Senators for the legislation and 37 against the legislation, meaning that some LCP are not really in favor of putting more people in jail either, which will look good for them in the future.
March 18, 2018: Massive Virus Outbreak in Omnibus
Devastating news out of Olirith as 132 people are infected with an unknown disease, the disease begins like acting like a fever for what doctors have said lasts for a day and then the vision of the person starts to blur and eventually they faint and die from the sickness, 11 people have died from the illness already and doctors are baffled by the sickness like good doctors they have quarantined the people that are believed to be infected but this does not seem to be helping because almost nine thousand people across Omnibus have started to be quarantined to keep the sickness at bay but while they are doing this more are dying in quarantine, 96 dying overall as this article is being written but the number rises every minute because of the rapidness of the disease. Rhaegar Vladdimir released a statement earlier today online saying, "If you are feeling sick, please do not touch anyone and please go straight to the doctor." Many critics of Rhaegar Vladimir believe that this outbreak is very convienent for him because information was just released that his campaign was paying terrorists but he does not have to discuss that because of the outbreak of what people are calling the Vladimir Flu, as a movement against the President of Omnibus
March 18, 2018: The Sparks of Revolution come to Omnibus
While the headlines are plagued with the news of the Senate turning against the people, civil unrest in cities in Omnibus and a massive virus killing many it seems that Omnibus is a shell of its former self but recent events have put hope into people's eyes as a woman burned herself in front of the Senate building as a sign of protest against the recent legislation passed and suggested in the Senate, after the woman burned herself the Senate doors were vandalized by rocks being thrown at them and a message wrote on the door by six teens, "Leave the Senate LCP." The six teens were captured by the police after the police brutally beat them up in front of the Senate then took them to the holding cells without taking them to the hospital, one of the spectators caught the brutality on camera and posted it on Youtube where thousands came out throughout Omnibus to protest the LCP, the cops and the President for their terrible actions while in office, four of the people protesting were shot dead by cops that were trying to control the situation sparking violent protests from the rest of the crowds all across Omnibus. The police stood down and either joined the protestors against the government or cowered away from the thousands of protestors in the streets of Omnibus.
March 18, 2018: Senator Nell Jinks Speaks Out
Nell Jinks, who has gone back to her home for the weekend to make sure that those that have gotten the virus in her hometown are safe and that the hospitals are helping them the best that they can being a nurse during the Civil War she even stepped in to help take care of those who were sick but even in her hometown she could not escape comments about the expulsion of non-natural born citizens of Omnibus from the country, she is a firm UPC Senator but has not spoken on the issue saying reporters that, "What the people are doing speaks for itself that this must not be our policies." But came out with a full statement as she worked with those that were sick, "True to our history and values as a nation, we have served as a place of refuge to the most vulnerable in the world. We should not be putting in place a ban on the people who created Omnibus, immigrants, people who were not natural born in Omnibus, These people would much rather stay in their homes and live in peace. That’s why we must address the cries of the people to repeal this legislation.” Nell was confident in her answer and has said that she would prefer that Rhaegar Vladimir step down from power instead of the Senate having to draft impeachment papers against him, but she is willing to do so if the time comes to it. But, for now Nell is spending her time helping those in need, taking a break before she gets the publicity of the new book that she has been writing about the Revolution that needs to take place in Omnibus if they want to keep the Republic that they know and love, that book comes out tomorrow and seems rather timely given the events of earlier today.
March 18, 2018: Rhaegar Vladimir Encourages the Senate to Close
Transcript below, speaking to a Special Committee of the Senate
On February the 27th, enemies of freedom killed my friend Marshal Seaver committing an act of war against our country.
On March 3rd, these enemies of freedom acted against us again trying to topple my campaign for the Presidency
On March 12th deadly riots started in our cities
And continuously throughout my Presidency I have been bashed for my decisions and an investigation is being led against me saying that I was involved in helping the terrorists kill Marshal Seaver.
These are all acts of war against our country. The people of Omnibus have known wars but for the past 8 years we have been at peace. The people of Omnibus have known the causalities of war. But, not started by our neighbors in the center of our cities on peaceful mornings where the people of Omnibus believed that we had moved past these awful habits once we toppled the Raimis. All of these terrorist attacks were brought upon us by the people of our country and since then we have been living in a different world where our freedom is under attack. The people of Omnibus have many questions tonight, the people of Omnibus are asking: Why is there so much violence in the streets of Omnibus? Why is a flu killing our people? What I have gathered is that it all comes back to one source, immigrants. They are the murderers of our people and they are responsible for the terrorist attacks against us, Immigrants our terrorists. There goal is to bring down the freedoms that we have in this country and replacing it with a system that is not strong, a system that is corrupt. They make no distinction on who they will kill they will kill men, women and children to take us to their goal. I condemn immigrants that come to Omnibus. Which is why I encourage the Senate of Omnibus to give the powers of themselves to me and close every door to the Senate house so that I may do what the people truly want, an end to this violence in a way a servant of the people, such as myself can give. A full crackdown on protests, where these immigrants fester and create their terrorist ideals we must act quickly which is why you must vote now to allow me the powers of the Senate, so that we can truly make the ideas of the people a reality.
After, hearing this speech from the President of Omnibus, the Senate deliberates and then takes a vote in front of the President. It has been rumored since the vote that twenty of the members of the Senate were paid off to vote in favor of the call to action, the official vote was 27 for closing the Senate and giving their powers to Rhaegar and 27 voting to keep the powers of the Senate, so since the proposal ended in a tie, the proposal dies in the Senate and is banned from being discussed again in the Senate. Rhaegar Vladimir was angry about this and knew what would be coming next as he saw Nell Jinks, who had come from her hometown especially to vote in the Special Committee rising with a smirk as she rose to give a speech to the Senate.
March 18, 2018: Senator Nell Jinks calls for Impeachment of Rhaegar Vladimir
In front of the Senate Special Committee Nell Jinks speaks after Rhaegar Vladimir's quest for absolute power is denied, Transcript below
Today I am an inquisitor. Any hyperbole would not be fictional and would not overstate the solemnness that I feel right now. My faith in Omnibus is whole; it is complete; it is total. And I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction, of Omnibus.
Rhaegar Vladimir has abused the trust of the people of Omnibus.
It is wrong for any member here to assert that for a member to vote for an article of impeachment means that that member must be convinced that the President should be removed from office. That is not how it works. We know the nature of impeachment. We almost had to impeach Former President Shane Raimi. It is chiefly designed for the President and others to somehow be called into account. It is designed to "bridle" the Executive if he engages in excesses.
The drawing of political lines goes to the motivation behind impeachment; but impeachment must proceed within the confines of the term "high crime[s] and misdemeanors." Of the impeachment process, it was Shane Raimi who said that "Nothing short of the grossest offenses against the plain law of the land will suffice to give them speed and effectiveness. Indignation so great as to overgrow party interest may secure a conviction; but nothing else can."
Common sense would be revolted if we engaged upon this process for petty reasons. Congress has a lot to do. Pettiness cannot be allowed to stand in the face of such overwhelming problems. So today we are not being petty. We are trying to be big, because the task we have before us is a big one.
This morning, we received information from the Intelligence Agency that will not be released to the public until tomorrow morning and as you know among this being is that the Intelligence Agency is now certain that the Rhaegar Campaign was instrumental in the deadly terrorist attacks and assassination of Marshal Seaver because the terrorists connected to the terrorism have told investigators that they talked to David Poulin and Rhaegar Vladimir multiple times about the terrorist attacks and to prove this gave the investigators memos from Rhaegar and David .We were further cautioned today that perhaps these proceedings ought to be delayed because certainly there would be new evidence forthcoming from the President of Omnibus. There has not even been an obfuscated indication that this committee would receive any additional materials from the President. Instead, the response was ignoring the evidence that he paid the terrorists in favor of blaming immigrants for the problems of our country, the same immigrants that Rhaegar Vladimir went against the wishes of the people of Omnibus to have expelled from the country and close our border to.
At this point, I would like to juxtapose a few of the impeachment criteria with some of the actions the President has engaged in. Impeachment criteria: If the President be connected in any suspicious manner with any person and there be grounds to believe that he will shelter him, he may be impeached.
The President had knowledge that these funds were being paid and these were funds collected for the Presidential campaign from collected information from Rhaegar's computer. We know that David Poulin, from the memos, met with the terrorists 27 times to discuss matters related to the terrorist attacks, and immediately thereafter met with Rhaegar Vladimir to discuss the meeting that he just had. The words are: "If the President is connected in any suspicious manner with any person and there be grounds to believe that he will shelter that person, he may be impeached."
Impeachments intended for occasional and extraordinary cases where a superior power acting for the whole people is put into operation to protect their rights and rescue their liberties from violations. We know about the ban on people that are not naturally born in Omnibus. We know about the blatant killing of Lucas Finch. We know that Rhaegar Vladimir and the LCP have not been acting in the interest of the country since Rhaegar Vladimir has come to office. Protect their rights." "Rescue their liberties from violation.
Has the President committed offenses, and planned, and directed, and acquiesced in a course of conduct which Omnibus will not tolerate? That's the question. We know that. We know the question. We should now forthwith proceed to answer the question. It is reason, and not passion, which must guide our deliberations, guide our debate, and guide our decision.
By a vote of 50 for and 4 against, the Senate decided that because of the many riots in the streets of Omnibus calling for the impeachment of Rhaegar Vladimir makes up at least 50% of the population and then moved from that point to decide whether impeachment proceedings should continue, 34 Senators were for impeachment proceedings to continue while 20 Senators voted against the impeachment proceedings which means that Rhaegar Vladimir will not be allowed to make any decisions as President and effectively Hope Finch is Acting President until a decision can be met about whether Rhaegar Vladimir will be impeached or not. Rhaegar Vladimir has been summoned to the Senate to appear tomorrow to make his statements.
March 19, 2018: Rhaegar Vladimir Speaks to the People of Omnibus
Transcript of Rhaegar Vladimir's address to the Senate and the people of Omnibus before they vote on whether he should be impeached, the decision will also effect David Poulin as well.
My fellow people of Omnibus, I come to you with a short but meaningful statement to not believe what this Senate has said, I want you to block out this conspiracy that they are plotting against me and listen to the man that you elected to be your servant, I was not involved in the terrorist attacks, David Poulin or I had nothing to do with the death of my friend Marshall Seaver. The power of these liars in the Senate will only get worse and I know that they will vote me from the office just like they did with Shane Raimi. But, I encourage you to think, when will it stop? When will we have a leader that the Senate does not impeach? Therefore, we must fight against the Senate on every legislation to make sure that we can trust the people that we put in charge of the government. With that I stand firm on my stance that I am not guilty of this conspiracy against me.
Although Rhaegar Vladimir said that he was not guilty of the crimes the Senat still voted to see if he will be impeached from the office and 41 of the Senators voted for his impeachment while 13 senators voted for him to stay in the office of the Presidency. Next, the Senate voted on whether to impeach David Poulin from the office of the consul, with a vote of 33 for his impeachment from the consul and 21 against. With the vote having been decided by the Senate it moved to the people of Omnibus where the people voted 60% impeaching both, Rhaegar and David Poulin and 40% against impeaching them making it appear that the Senate had just enough of a majority of the people of Omnibus for the two of them to be impeached, now President Hope Finch will have to make a statement tonight to the people of Omnibus.
President Hope Finch Speaks to the People of Omnibus for the first time
Good evening. This is the first time I have spoken to you from the center of Cheles, where announcements have been made that have changed the course of Omnibus. In all of those changes past Presidents have made in their public lives, they have always tried to do what was best for the Nation. Throughout the long and difficult period of instability, I feel it is my duty to persevere, to make every possible effort to complete my term of office.
In the past few days, however, it has become evident to me that the people do not want the ideals of the LCP. As long as there was such people, that could make up a majority that identified with the ideals of the LCP I felt strongly that it was necessary to see the process through to its conclusion, that to do otherwise would be unfaithful to the spirit of that deliberately difficult process and a dangerously destabilizing precedent for the future. But with the disappearance of that base, I now believe that my purpose, to end a denial of the people's rights has been served, and there is no longer a need for the process to be prolonged.
I would have preferred to carry through to the finish of my term as President whatever the personal agony it would have involved, and my family unanimously urged me to do so. But the interest of the Nation must always come before any personal considerations. I believe I do not have the people in the Senate to back the very difficult decisions and carry out the duties of this office in the way the interests of the Nation would require.
I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interest of the people of Omnibus first. Omnibus needs a President and Senate that will work for them and not their own special interests, particularly at this time with problems we face at home. To continue to fight through the years ahead for my personal vindication would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Senate when our entire focus should be on the issues of the people of Omnibus.
Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective tonight. Chief Executive Consul Liddy Hopper will be sworn in as President after I am finished tonight.
As I recall the high hopes for Omnibus with which we began this nation, I feel a great sadness that I will not be here in this office working on your behalf to achieve those hopes in the next 8 years. But in turning over direction of the Government to Liddy Hopper, I know, as I told the Nation that the leadership of Omnibus will be in good hands.
In passing this office to Liddy Hopper, I also do so with the profound sense of the weight of responsibility that will fall on her shoulders tonight and, therefore, of the understanding, the patience, the cooperation she will need from all people of Omnibus. As she assumes that responsibility, she will deserve the help and the support of all of us. As we look to the future, the first essential is to begin healing the wounds of this Nation, to put the bitterness and divisions of the recent past behind us, and to rediscover those shared ideals that lie at the heart of our strength and unity as a great and as a free people.
By taking this action, I hope that I will have hastened the start of that process of healing which is so desperately needed in Omnibus.
I regret deeply any injuries that may have been done in the course of the events that led to this decision.
So, let us all now join together in affirming that common commitment and in helping our new President succeed for the benefit of all people of Omnibus.
I shall leave this office with regret at not completing my term, But the challenges ahead are equally great, and they, too, will require the support and the efforts of the Senate and the people working in cooperation with the new President. We must complete a structure of peace so that it will be said of this generation, our generation, by the people of all nations, not only that we ended our disasters but that we prevented future disasters.
I pledge to you tonight that as long as I have a breath of life in my body, I shall continue in that spirit. I shall continue to work for the great causes to which I have been dedicated throughout my years the cause of peace not just for Omnibus but among all nations, prosperity, justice, and opportunity for all of our people.
There is one cause above all to which I have been devoted and to which I shall always be devoted for as long as I live.
