Well, there is such a thing as poetic license you know.

Just let me say that I was heavily involved in the Florida hurricane and flood recovery.

I never saw you down there.

If you can prove to me you were involved in the Florida hurricane and flood recovery then I will be the first to send you a big apology.
I provided the damage estimates for my good friend Deputy GM Encke which will help properly allocate money to the good people of Florida from the Federal and regional governments

OK, I'll take  your word for it.  Although I did not see you on the ground rescuing lives as I was, which was what I was talking about.

But anyway, my apologies.

Interview With Oak Vale: Says He Fits The Federalist Bill Better Than The President

Mike Wells
: What about Frank Taggin needs to be primaried?

Oak Vale: I’m sure the President’s a nice person or whatever. But she’s clearly not up to the job. A junior member of Congress is not the President we need when the nation stands reeling at a crucial crossroads in our history. We need someone with reams of experience, a clear vision and with no divided loyalty between country and party benefactor. Another tedious tinkerer as President will only hasten our decline and, perhaps, make it irrevocable.

I’m running for President because I am the only person with the skills and the vision to reverse our tragic decay.

I’m running for the Federalist nomination because the party has lost its soul and needs to return to conservative principles. God knows I’m not the most orthodox conservative but I fit that bill a hell of a lot better than Fhtagn.

MW: What do you make of the credible theory that there was a conspiracy to appoint neoconservative shill Frank Taggin to the presidency?

OV: I think this is probably true. It is clear that the game is run, for all intents and purposes, by a group of chummy cronies who arrange things to their whims over cigars and brandies. I’m sure some half-bright spark saw Fhtagn, a well-liked if not particularly distinguished member of Congress, and decided she would be the ideal empty suit to place into the Vice-Presidency as the incumbent was running out of steam.

I think she may have been put there by this cabal to get the “Nice guy FF!” idiot vote. It’s not about policy, or skill, or even about politics, really. It’s about making sure as little as possible changes, until we all sink below the waves. It’s shameful.

MW: If you could chose one place to nuke, what would it be?

OV: Japan, again. Twice wasn’t enough obviously.

MW: Are pineapples acceptable to put on pizza?

OV: No. As President, I will use the full power of the federal government to ban this sick practice. I believe the government does have a role, in limited circumstances, in preventing aberrant behaviours.

MW: How many times have you referred to Vice President PiT as Vice President (SH) iT?

OV: I would normally just refer to him as a member in good standing of the Senate’s Idiot Caucus. He’s one of the usual suspects. Appropriate that he’s now Fhtagn’s right-hand man, both metaphorically and literally looking over her shoulder, nudging her in the predetermined direction at all times.

MW: If you lose the nomination, do you pledge to support the nominee?

OV: It’s a tough question. In normal circumstances, stopping Crooked Harry Truman would be paramount, above all other concerns. But I’m unconvinced that a Fhtagn Presidency would be meaningfully different in terms of what matters - radically changing the system. So, no, right now I can’t make that pledge. Hopefully by the time the nomination comes around I will be able to do so.

But, in any event, I expect to win the Federalist nomination - the voters are sick and tired of the liberal FINOs being pushed on them by the so-called party elders. They want a conservative choice for a change.

MW: And for the most ridiculous and least important question of them all, what will you do to address the North Korea situation?

OV: I pledge that, once I take that oath and become your President, the North Korean situation will cease to be a problem. Specifically, it will cease to exist because I will abolish the dull fanfiction generator that is the Game Moderation department within days of taking office. This is, I think, a novel approach to the problem.

This answer is absolutely insane... it would dissolve Atlasia as we know it. As someone who would like Fhtagn to be more dedicated to conservative principles, I disavow the radical buffoonery expressed in this answer. Fhtagn is a valuable ally who is showing she is willing to listen. Change will not be brought by tearing apart the core fabrics of our society, as these core fabrics are essential to our conservative principles.

My young friend, look around Atlasia as we know it. Has the system worked?

I've been around for, I think, thirty-four Game Moderators in my time.

Thirty-four.

Some have been passable. Some have been disastrous. The vast majority have been utterly irrelevant, posting once or twice and roundly ignored by everyone.

All the entertainment value in this game - every single bit of it - has come not from the fanfiction authored by the Game Moderation department, but from actual, real reactions from actual human beings.

Take a look over the last thirteen years. Just a cursory look. The engagement has universally stemmed from debate and controversy over our actions. Whether it's lawsuits, controversial legislation and its bitter debates, impeachments, resignations and scandals. This is the lifeblood of the game.

The Game Moderator has basically only matter when it's involved in some kind of scandal. It'd be nice if it wasn't so, but, as they say, it do be. It has literally always been this way. The only way you'd have a functioning GM that people didn't ignore if they felt like it is if there was a computer program or something that could spit out scenarios and figures based on our input. That's not possible. So, I come to the obvious conclusion. Slash the state.

I'd note that the position lay dormant for some 670 days - yes, nearly two years - over 2006 and 2007, and it made zero difference. In fact, those years presented some of our most exciting and engaged politics.

I hope I can count on your support.

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OCTOBER 2017: OUR GUIDE TO THE CANDIDATES
Written By: Issac Cummings

Once again, it is the time of year where the Nyman swamp creatures start trying to appeal for our votes. Presidential Election campaigns seem to last longer than they ever used to in the past, which is very odd when you consider that the substance of the debate is worse than ever, and actual policy differences (or indeed, actual policies) are totally absent. As we rapidly approach the party primaries, party members are rushing around trying to look through the opaque platforms and public statements of the candidates to work out who they support, many people are crying out for a simple guide to the candidates.

They need to worry no more! The Nyman Questioner, taking our stated mission aim to inform and inspire to heart (as we always do) has decided to present a breakdown of the important issues for each candidate. 

It ought to be clarified that any editorialising is not the view of the Nyman Questioner, merely perspective of Isaac Cummings, your humble author. We shall make decisions on whom to endorse in the future, and it may well shock you when we decide. Our goal is also to make it as easy to understand as possible, so that even a dumb child from Texas could understand!


Federalist Party

Frank Taggin/Percival I. Trash:  Ms Taggin broke the glass ceiling of Atlasian politics - shame that it had to be through effectively being gifted the office, rather than through fighting for it. As someone effectively running as a Liberty Lover third term, we ought to consider the implications of his disastrous term as President: putting us on the brink of war, and an incredibly limited list of legislative achievements for such a long, long term as President. Consider also the remarkable transformation of the President, from a vocal figure on the left of the Labor party, to the new leader of the radical, dangerous centrism that has consumed the Federalist Party. The fact that she’s emphasising foreign policy so strongly suggests that she knows that her terrifying domestic policies could dramatically harm the nation. Indeed, there haven’t been any publicly announced domestic policies to this point: with the exception of vague statements about not making “conservative-leaning economic policies” a priority.

Oakley Vale/Donald Trump: This is a bold new campaign, trying to take the Federalist Party back to its roots. Mr Vale is using his significant experience in the distant past as proof of his credentials; giving him something that is very hard to build up: both experience, and outsider appeal. His policies include reducing the size of government by slicing away irrelevant offices like the National Archivist (although considering who’s about to be appointed, you wonder whether there’s a level of sabotage being planned), reforming our country’s over complex and self-contradictory election legislation and devolving significant amounts of power back to the regions. Controversial for the unique rhetoric of his campaign; the question remains whether he can convince the Nyman elites to vote for him - after all, in our false-democracy you need the votes of the swamp creatures in order to have a chance of victory.


Labour Party

Harry Truman/Alwyn Scott: The favourites for the Labor party nomination feature the controversial Prime Minister who recently appointed… himself for Federal Office. I’m not sure whether that shows how power crazy he is, or the paucity of talent in the Western Labor Party. The Prime Rib Representative Minister announced a comprehensive platform for office, including sensible foreign policy, a national high speed rail system, and a variable living wage. Indeed, my sources have told me the staff of Ms Taggins have snuck into Truman headquarters and stole copies on the platform the day before publication - not to plan attacks or anything like that, but merely for policy ideas.

Kalvin Wejt/?HuhHuh?: The Polish peril announced a Presidential run, but in his statement said that he would not campaign, select a vice-presidential candidate or, indeed, do anything whilst in office. Sounds like the perfect candidate for the Questioner!

Pot Smoking Communist Hippy Party

Liam Rock/Mike Wells: In a time where the two major parties seem to believe exactly the same things and with the collapse of minor parties like the Liberal Democrats (I mean, what do you expect when you try to bridge an inch wide gap?), the presence of a third party alternative is refreshing. Providing common sense, sensible, moderate socialist solutions on both economic and social issues, like the formation of a national bank, universal free education and a liberalisation of gun rights makes this the perfect ticket for any sensible progressive voter. Consider also the international impact that such a President would have - with the hideous rise of bigotry and xenophobia around the globe, wouldn’t it be a testament to how inclusive and tolerant the normal people of our great country are for us to elect our first afro-having President? I mean, I would be proud to have such an upstanding head of hair as our President, never mind the person attached to it.


The drop-outs

A larger than normal list of campaigns have announced a run, and then dropped from view. A confusing state of affairs involved two of the intended challengers for the Labor nomination, with Secretary Peebs electing to run for President with Governor Wells, then withdrew, then jumped back in with the ticket reversed, and then finally withdrew again - all within less than a week. As can be seen above, Mr Wells is running on the Pot Smoking Communist Hippy Party ticket, which is likely to be a lot more stable.

Richard Robert David-Davies had announced the creation of an “exploratory committee” for Independent run for the Presidency, but rather humiliatingly withdrew from running whilst endorsing the Truman/Scott ticket less than six hours later. One assumes that David-Davies made this decision to get his face on television, such is his vanity.

As revealed in the Questioner on the 8th September, Winifred Winfield had contemplated yet another run for the Presidency - however, the perennial candidate had been convinced to announce that he would not run the day after publication. Another victory for the Questioner!

If anything you are the ones stealing from us. Your slogan looks remarkably similar to the title of my announcement speech from October 2nd 2016, or was it October 3rd. "The Time is Now", versus "It's Time"

Deeply Disturbing!

CENSORSHIP IN THE WIKI
Written By: Mike Wells

If you ever find yourself curious about the history of Atlasia, there are two places you can go to find all the information you will ever need. You may ask Swamp King Yankee to give you a lecture, not because it will be accurate, but because 9 out of 10 times it is so monstrously wrong a slightly more credible source must jump out of a nearby bush to correct him. Yet since Yankee doesn’t go off on one of his unintelligible tirades every day, you will find yourself forced to go to the Wiki, the legendary encyclopedia that gets updated frequently and has virtually no bias, right?

WRONG!

Contrary to popular belief, the Wiki does not in fact serve the interests of the people. Shockingly, the number one source of information about our nation contains many pieces of missing information, warping the average citizen’s view of the state of affairs in our nation. Far from being comprehensive, if you take a look at the article for this current presidential election, you'll find no mention of the Kalwejt’s run for the office, nor the presidential ticket of the Pot Smoking Communist Hippie Party. It may seem harmless, but what if it actually is not? What if the same group of swamp creatures who control the media also control the Wiki?

If certain information is being purposefully censored, it seems that the motives are clear: they do not want the public to know that Kalvin Wejt was running, and they do not want them to know Liam Rock and I are running on a ticket together too. And there is a reason for this. They are afraid. Afraid that once our message falls on ears that are very willing to listen, that the people will bring us up and weaken the swamp indefinitely. So it is much easier for them to pretend as if it doesn’t exist, and make it impossible to find out if it does.

Yet the missing information runs even more deeply than that. The powers that be at the Wiki have been censoring the press as well. After careful digging, I discovered that my quite famous and reputable newspaper is nowhere to be found in the Wiki. It does not have its own article, nor does it appear in my article despite me being the owner and editor-in-chief. And this is not isolated to our own newspaper, as The Atlasian Star is very conspicuously absent as well. It has no article of its own, no mention in AZ’s wiki page or the Game Moderator page. Most disturbingly, they seem to think that DKrol is still the Game Moderator; and Encke’s page does not exist.

The motivation for this is equally clear in my eyes: they do not want the masses learning about the alternative sources of current events, shielding them from the truth, creating separate realities where only a small fraction ever know that they can vote for pot-smoking hippies or that their dissatisfaction with the knowledge the swamp lets them have could be easily solved by a subscription to the Star or Questioner.

Of course, now that we have exposed their blatant attempts at hiding the truth from Atlasia, you will see that the Swamp will scramble to fix it and call it a mere oversight or something of the sort. But we will know the truth.

Still, we must wonder how we got into this situation. The idea of a Wiki is that anyone and everyone can edit freely. Yet editing powers are limited to an exclusive club, handpicked by this mysterious Dave Leip. And despite his extreme power when it comes to controlling the flow of information, the Wiki has very little to say about him.

“Reputed to be the lord.”

What does this mean? Is someone really that full of himself? I must look into this more - expect another article in the future.

Monstrously wrong typically has the same definition of inconvenient truth, especially if you just so happen to be one who finds it exceedingly inconvenient. Tongue


And then you realize why some consider me such a villain.

Federalist Party Convention Preview: A hive of villainy, and controversy
Written By: Isaac Cummings, on location in Jacksonville

You’d think that the Federalist Party would be in a good mood at the upcoming convention. Consider that they seem to be going into the election with a great deal of momentum; a popular new President seeking to have the Federalists elected to their third straight term (not including the half-term from the tied Presidential election last year) holding the highest office in the land, a diverse leadership team able to appeal to both radical moderates and common sense extremists, and a feeling that they are clearly the favourites going into the General Election.

But as I write, on the evening before the first day of the convention, it is clear that the party that for the past year has seemed to be the natural party of governance; one able to seemingly group together such a diverse and… odd coalition of supporters, is racked by both deep and personal divisions. Not only that, but accusations have been made to The Questioner by key delegates in the Oakley Vale camp that party leaders have changed the rules and schedule to deny new Federalists a fair vote, whilst those on the more mainstream side of the party have thrown around wild accusations of vote buying. This hardly seems like the appropriate atmosphere from which a united party to form.

Let us consider all of the arguments on all sides. In my eyes it is clear that some strange, and seemingly biased, decisions have been made by the leadership of the party. First consider the decision last week to change the schedule of the convention; so that the October convention takes place entirely in September. I mean, it doesn’t take a genius to point out the strange part of this. Also consider this: the Federalist convention is taking place in Jacksonville, part of a state that has recently bit hit by two very large hurricanes, with many people having lost their homes, and some of the luckier ones still without power. Had the Federalists made the decision to move their convention out of state then perhaps moving the thing earlier would make more sense - after all, we all know how hard it is to book any venue at very short notice, never mind a large arena. But they made the decision to move the convention forward whilst staying in Jacksonville; using up God only knows what police and security resources that could be much better used in the continuing clear up and relief operations. From the outside this clearly looks like it may be a politically motivated move, designed to favour the wealthier delegate; for whom taking the days of work at short notice and reorganising travel plans is a doddle.

The official Federalist position on this is that the City requested the move, believing that holding the convention earlier was the best course of action to still get the economic benefits of it. My source in the Federalist party leadership, when the accusation of vote suppression was brought, said “We aren’t… Scott Walker.” - a reference, I can only assume, to the extremely conservative Governor in a hit TV series. We contacted the City of Jacksonville for a response, but as of the time of publication, we have yet to receive a reply.

Let us also consider the recent decision of the Convention Rules Committee, as announced yesterday morning by Chairman of the Party Nathan C Yankee. The ruling stated that only voters registered as Federalists on midnight of the day of the ruling would be allowed to vote in the Federalist primary. As far as I can see, this is a decision made without precedent, only based on a perceived increase of the number of people registering as Federalists, with a belief, the validity of which I do not wish to speak on, that these new voters are somehow closet socialists seeking to sabotage the Federalist election process.

This is a decision that the party is naturally allowed to make - it is after all, a private decision - but I would suggest that anything that might be perceived as somehow skewing the race in favour of any particular candidate might lead to a backlash, both with the general public and the party. Indeed, a Vale delegate told me last night that the decision would likely cause a split in the Federalist party - and might even lead to a splinter candidacy running in the General Election. Now considering that we have preferential voting that would not necessarily be disastrous for the Federalists, but in a close election that might just be enough to cost them victory. 

The accusations of vote buying seem to currently be the loudest at the moment, although primarily amongst those delegates who are closest to the party leadership - notably, former failed President Liberty-Lover, the first to publicly condemn it. Since we at the Questioner are a responsible News Source who only report entirely true stories like the recent homelessness of Mr Winfield, at this point we cannot either totally report this accusations as being true, nor entirely rebut them. We will report that a source very close to President Taggin was willing to say off the record that she had heard that the Vale campaign had offered a close friend a role within their administration for a public endorsement of the candidate in the primaries, although the Vale campaign did not respond to our request for comment. Yet we also note the offering of offices before an election is not illegal - and indeed, some delegates have mentioned the historical links between the Federalist Party and office-selling (although my contact in the Federalist leadership reaction to these accusations was to simply call those making them “stupid” and suggesting that they withdraw from politics). Neither campaign has spoken at this point publicly on the accusations; with the belief amongst convention goers being that the issue will be mentioned in the Opening Statements of the candidates on the opening day of the Convention. 

The position of The Questioner is simple. We naturally condemn the act of vote buying - it is after all, the sort of dirty tactic that the Nyman elite have made their own in recent years. But all of the moralising about this from the Federalist Party elites ignores the fact that they have been willing to make decisions that will limit the number of people allowed to vote in the primaries - whilst also holding such an expensive and gaudy event in a city where only minutes away there are people have have been devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma seems very unnecessary. It also will strike many as suspicious that all of the people in leadership positions within the Federalist Party have been willing to endorse the one candidate - some, including me, may see that as leading to biased decisions being made.

The people who are certainly happiest at this event are the Labor party. The ALP already have their Presidential ticket, which means that their convention will likely be a much more docile, cheerful affair. Whilst the Federalist convention might end up in a united party (my Federalist contacts have all privately told me that they will vote for the eventual nominee, whoever they may be); it is easy to tell a journalist privately now: but when you get to the privacy of the voting booth in a few months, who knows whether that may happen.

We will have coverage of all days of the Federalist convention, right here in the Questioner.

Once again The Nyman Falsifier has purposely misrepresented the statements by mainstream Federalists into order to push their pro-Labor and pro-radical biases.


Nobody said anything about "holding the whole convention in September", in fact we have stuff planned right through the election. The entire purpose of the early primary was in fact to avoid a repeat of August, in which the last candidate to declare, got in the day before the election and the result was a Labor victory. It was thus mine and our desire, to have all Federal candidates declared and nominated by October 1st and, as you have pointed out, the Labor nomination is basically settled so delaying the nomination until the first week of October would give our candidate precisely a week and a half to catch up to Truman's Month long head start. Having started a Presidential candidacy from almost one month in the hole, I can tell you it is a handicap I don't want to see another Fed have to go through.

As for the matter of voters, I stood up for the recent influx and only relented regarding further registrations out of concern that there would be a flurry of last minute registrants beyond those that have already joined, by those seeking to alter the result so as to better enable a Truman victory by nominating the perceived "Weaker" candidate. On what planet is our party's leadership obligated to stand by and let our noble party with its valiant history be slain by rank subversion and sabotage?

Perhaps I would suggest the planet that this newspaper choose to reside 24/7, but sure as hell is not down to earth. And so I will give you the reality, as down to earth as I can. The Federalist Party is no Nobody's B3^#H. If these people are committed to being Federalists, they can still join and prove they were not just interested in destroying us, otherwise, they can...

Once again The Nyman Falsifier has purposely misrepresented the statements by mainstream Federalists into order to push their pro-Labor and pro-radical biases.


Nobody said anything about "holding the whole convention in September", in fact we have stuff planned right through the election. The entire purpose of the early primary was in fact to avoid a repeat of August, in which the last candidate to declare, got in the day before the election and the result was a Labor victory. It was thus mine and our desire, to have all Federal candidates declared and nominated by October 1st and, as you have pointed out, the Labor nomination is basically settled so delaying the nomination until the first week of October would give our candidate precisely a week and a half to catch up to Truman's Month long head start.

This is all very convincing, but anything Yankee says is false until proven true. I may be more inclined to believe this if it came from the mouth of someone more respectable, like Doof Liberty Lover.

Of course the real question here is who the hell is feeding you these talking points about Yankee being a liar?

I have known you for like a year, whereas my reputation for being "among the more respectable" operators on the right dates back eight years.

I cleaned up the corruption in the RPP and turned what was viewed as an oppressing elite run party by DWTL into a party where everyone was respected.

When I took over the Federalists I spent six months trying to clean up the "Me first, screw everyone else attitude" that was rampant in the party and was succeeding, until RL took me out of the picture for just long enough to let the cesspool return. But the good thing about "dead parties", the selfish types typically don't stick around so that false narrative did my work for me.

I am generally always the one telling everyone to calm the F down when they start fighting and working out people's differences and trying to get everyone to understand that if you candidate x supports y now, y will support you later on. But some see the backroom wheeling and dealing as more advantageous, even when the party gets screwed. Yet I am the dishonest one?

I spent a year fighting back against the Prairie socialist and his nationalization and centralist (Centralized state) agenda consistently and effectively while some happily endorsed and voted for the candidates who enabled it, only to then turn around and say I was not sufficiently conservative in the fight against socialism, and then in the height of surreal irony, elect even more socialists and centralists to the point where they had a supermajority. On some planet that makes sense, but I know not of it.

For the past four years, most all dishonesty has stemmed from one place and it is unfortunately basically the same source you get all your information, alternative facts and talking points from. When you understand that, you will realize you are being used by the very swamp creatures that always corrupt the system and why they always want to destroy me and the Federalist Party.

Yankee, I'm pretty sure this is satire.

You mean to tell me this pseudo journalistic backwater rag is still in operation?

No offence of course.
