  7. De'Aaron Jones, an African American sophomore at Worthington Kilbourne High School, was shot by the Columbus PD today. De'Aaron was unarmed and was riding his bike at 9:00 pm. Deonna and Corbin, the parents of De'Aaron, said that he was at a friends house and was coming home for his curfew at 10:00 pm. The cop, Sgt. Moats, was in the area due to a call of a neighborhood disturbance and was investigating the incident. He claimed that he told the young man to stop riding his bike. The rider did not listen and instead road his bike faster. As Sgt. Moats chased him, De'Aaron reached into his pocket to which Sgt. Moats shot DeAaron. Later, it was found out that De'Aaron had headphones in his ears with his phone playing music. Protests have begun around the country as African American groups are furious with another one of their young men being unjustly killed. Opportunities to speak on behalf of racial injustice will be made available to any political figure who wishes to speak. OOC: soon to be located in the public events thread. Pro-cop groups are claiming that the young man should have listened to the cops. Opportunities to speak on behalf of the police and law enforcement will be made available to any political figure who wishes to speak. OOC: soon to be located in the public events thread.
  8. CDC and government agencies have begun the process of quarantining the current victims of the Nipah virus. The previous total was 10 infected and 2 in jeopardy. Since then, it is suspected that the number has grown from 10 to 17 with 4 close to death. This is the best of a worst case scenario due to the quick action. The CDC will keep everyone posted on updates. The research funding will likely take about two months to come up with a solution (OOC: about two days) and will take about an additional 2 months (OOC: about 2 days) to implement the virus. The CDC appreciates the temporary ban from India until a proper vaccine and preventative measures are in place. Once the crisis is resolved, this may create more discussion on methods to address some of the global diseases that effect mankind. More updates to follow
  9. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, (87), has been hospitalized in a New York hospital. The first signs of cancer was found after a surgery in 2019. It appears there is not much left she can do. The days will be long as it seems we are nearing an end to the Ginsburg era on the Supreme Court. Democrats hold their breath knowing what is yet to come with President Vang holding the power to replace her.
  10. The CDC programs, part of a global health security initiative, train front-line workers in outbreak detection and work to strengthen laboratory and emergency response systems in countries where disease risks are greatest. The goal is to stop future outbreaks at their source. Early intervention is vital to lessening the impacts of epidemics. In the case of the Ebola outbreak, proactive U.S leadership helped to avoid a worst-case scenario of 1.4 million infections in four months. Early action also lowered the risk of infection among U.S. citizens, and reduced the chance of a viral mutation, which could have had terrifying consequences. While Ebola exacted terrible suffering and severe economic impacts in West Africa, these damages would have been much higher, more widespread and more destabilizing without the rapid U.S.-led intervention. This effective response was possible thanks to a $5.4 billion emergency allocation from Congress in 2014. While most of those federal dollars went directly to containment efforts, around $600 million went to the CDC for disease prevention. Under the Global Health Security Agenda – a U.S.-led initiative to coordinate and leverage the efforts of over 60 countries and organizations – the CDC has renovated laboratories, trained epidemiologists and strengthened response systems. Most of the funding comes from a one-time, five-year emergency package that Congress approved to respond to the 2014 Ebola epidemic in West Africa. About $600 million was awarded to the CDC to help countries prevent infectious-disease threats from becoming epidemics. That money was slated to run out by September 2019. Despite statements from President Trump and senior administration officials affirming the importance of controlling outbreaks, officials and global infectious-disease experts did not receive any additional resources from the Trump Administration. The CDC planned to narrow its focus to 10 “priority countries,” starting in October 2019, the official said. They are India, Thailand and Vietnam in Asia; Jordan in the Middle East; Kenya, Uganda, Liberia, Nigeria and Senegal in Africa; and Guatemala in Central America. Apparently, India's Nipah virus slipped through the cracks.

  11. The American Postal Workers Union has been frustrated with the current state of the United States Postal Service. With more competition from private companies like Amazon, UPS, Fed Ex, and others, the union is close to a full on strike due to the downsizing of the Postal Service. If not addressed by President Vang and the legislatures, this strike will result in nearly 286,700 postal workers skipping work in protest along with many post offices temporarily unable to complete mail distributions. Mail is expected to take about several weeks to deliver due to the lack of work expected if a strike occurs. What will the lawmakers do to address the growing grumblings of the The American Postal Workers Union and the role of the US Postal Service in America?
  12. An outbreak of the Nipah virus, a deadly virus that has killed between 40% and 75% of infected people in past outbreaks, has been encountered in Mississippi. The Nipah virus previously appeared in Malaysia and killed 265 people. Later, the virus spread to India with a few minor cases. Scientists have yet to come up with a vaccine to curb the effects of the Nipah virus. Unfortunately, 10 people in Hattiesburg, Mississippi have contracted the disease and 2 are close to death. Citizens are calling on lawmakers to take action to address these concerns.

  17. House Minority Leader George P. Smith has decided to step down from his role as Minority Leader. He will remain a member of the house for his constituents in Texas but believes there are other members of the party more suitable to lead the Republican party in the house. A new search begins for the Republicans in finding a new house leader.

    Here is a poll of the political leader with the highest approval rating among the various demographics.
  19. @LMR @Recks Nice job with your speeches! You both did an excellent job with crafting your message, separating yourselves from the Democrats, and making the business people happy. You both have received the +2 CHA and +2 Name Recognition as well as a +10 to your Business Demographic Governor Abbott is frustrated with Senator Rhodes @Sovereign for not showing up. -5 Business Demographic
  20. So on this date, both Senator Kessler and Senator Newport showed up to the event late. Vice President Gore wasn't happy about it and had back up speakers take the primetime spots. You were able to share your brief talks with some of the guests, but do not benefit from the national exposure/speech opportunity due to the lateness of your arrival.
  21. There is no Republican Senator from New York

  24. Progressives liked this comeback Nationalist Evangelical Business Moderate Conserv. Moderate Liberal SJW Progressive Environmentalist 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 Good job defending the DC red flag law. The key point that stands out is how you highlighted "due process" with a judge. The follow up regarding the current status of the laws that failed to stop the killing of Daniel Barden and Emilie Parker while agreeing that mental illness could be the reason but reinforcing the idea that if states have acted to address that issue it is a problem. Nationalist Evangelical Business Moderate Conserv. Moderate Liberal SJW Progressive Environmentalist 0 0 0 1 2 2 2 1 I combined these two. The problem you described is that the laws aren't being enforced. If we fixed the underfunded, understaffed, and underresourced law enforcement, we would be better off than creating more gun control. In addition, you mentioned that people who are not doing their jobs in law enforcement should be punished. The follow up question was an attempt to get specifics on how we enforce the laws better. I was hoping for some sort of specifics as to what would be funded, is there a bill that will provide better oversight over these laws, what is the punishment for neglecting the current laws/regulations. In addition, you avoided the question by saying that it is the FBI's job to answer that kind of question. Nationalist Evangelical Business Moderate Conserv. Moderate Liberal SJW Progressive Environmentalist 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Good job explaining the problems with the current laws and making your case for why the country should do more. Nationalist Evangelical Business Moderate Conserv. Moderate Liberal SJW Progressive Environmentalist -1 -1 -1 0 1 2 3 1 This was a suitable response. Standing firm to the anti-gun registry/any sort of oversight on personal guns. Nationalists like that. This was a good shift from addressing guns and focusing the problem on mental health. If there was a plan to address mental health, this would have been a good time to share it as an alternative. Nationalist Evangelical Business Moderate Conserv. Moderate Liberal SJW Progressive Environmentalist 2 1 1 0 0 -1 -1 -1 To wrap up, as this needs to get wrapped up. The final impression of the overall debate is that Ward's ideas were to essentially introduce new ideas to the fold and prevent "bad guys" from getting guns whereas Smith was trying to protect gun owners of more regulations and saying that the problem can be solved by addressing the negligence and the inability to carry out the laws we already have. Smith could have won some more points if he had more answers on how to reinforce the laws we already have or by addressing what he called the blame of gun violence, mental health problems. Not sure how we address mental health but the theme of the debate was mostly Ward saying we need a change while Smith saying no, we just aren't doing a good job at doing what we already are trying to do. Leaving this debate, I know how Senator Ward and the Democrats will proceed to address the issue while I do not know what Senator Smith and the Republicans are going to do. Smith's main points were about defending gun owners from more government overreach and attempting to ignore Ward's plans as unnecessary. He did well with standing firm for the far right 2nd amendment advocates which is why the overall far right totals are good and pleased with his performance. Moderates were fine with the style and listened but don't know where we go with the GOP plans. Moderates liked hearing the options moving forward from Ward.
