    Eli

    NS reminisces

    Dec 3 2002 I had just got to work, same office I'm in now just three different owners since then. Browsing National Review, Jonah Goldberg's column said check out nationstates.net, I'm still here. That morning as I was getting out of the car, Eli's Coming; Three Dog Night version was playing, so I'm humming Eli's Coming. My first nation was born that day, Eli was and is a libertarian leaning plain spoken type... I had to have been born in the Pacific, since it was the only GCR at the time, I think this actually pre-dated the Rejected Realms *scratches head* Soon I went to the Capitalist Alliance, founded by New Caithness who is still around today as El-Cid, and started building alliances between my nation and others in that UCR. I ran for Delegate, in game only, and got elected. Not too long after this I woke up in some other region, I don't believe there were founders yet, and discovered to my chagrin/pleasure that I'd been ejected from the Capitalist Alliance by some sordid scoundrels going by the name of the Atlantic Alliance. <insert boos and hisses here> It seems that they had discovered they could take over regions with a bit of organization and a bull rush to the endorsement button of their favorite take over figurehead. It was a result that had never crossed my mind. I did a bit of looking around and found out that there were some in the Meritocracy that would help us recover our region. Some treaty organization that Free4All was in, so we in the CA joined it. This eventually resulted in us overtaking the AA's figurehead (or they got bored and went elsewhere) and in Eli becoming interested in the Meritocracy. https://www.nationstates.net/page=news/2003/12/12/index.html. *I'll add to this later this will become a very postzilla type deal before long*

    @Benjabobaria I am well acquainted with Navasse but in this case I wanted to see a region that caused GP grief to be finished (even if it was dying all on its own). Frankly I hope that the Liberate [insert fascist or fascist-friendly region] bandwagon is ending for the time being.

    I cannot say much about the events described in this proposal. As written below, Kawaii put much effort into this in a short amount of time. General reception in the discussion thread seems to have been positive. Authorship by a fellow TWP citizen is always a plus. The 'Recognizes' paragraph mentions a few people that shaped and continue to shape TWP in significant ways. Also between all the joke proposals and Navasse's 'neoliberations' this is a breath of fresh air. The first serious SC proposal without angry discussion in quite some time. Unless someone who is versed in relevant gameplay background suddenly comes up with a serious objection I'd recommend to vote for this, also and especially because of its TWP connections in addition to its overall quality. discussion thread

    Praise violet! GenSec has seen the light and declared this illegal. That makes two proposals by the same author that were submitted without draft, campaigned for and declared illegal by GenSec. We'll see if they try again. Until then I'll close this.

    Last I checked New Ex Patria was at least a close ally of UCR, if not a citizen. So this is just a publicity stunt. If even it's not, they're not relevant enough to condemn. (:

    Yes, really minor but still a noteworthy point. I must admit I find the whole ordeal oddly fascinating. So now Greater Cofrienolls seems to have been DEATed for repeated WA multiing if I interpret moderation's comment on their RMB correctly. Also the proposal lost a few delegates thanks to a disapproval campaign by Lenlyvit and sits at: I guess that means that it'll soon be discarded? Well, I'll wait until that happens and close the thread then. Perhaps there will be a few more minor occasions for me to get the popcorn. /edit: and it's gone, I'll close here

    [DEQUEUED] Liberate World Assembly

    No forum draft. Submitted on April the 1st. Written by an anonymous puppet. Obvious joke proposal. Target has an active founder. Need I go on? Against! discussion thread

    A true shame our delegate is voting for this resolution. This resolution is riding a bandwagon and the region isn't necessarily a fascist region itself, although it did get help from fascists. Keep in mind that Navasse has at least as many fascist ties as Femdom does. https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=808337 Dave, the other GCR's may be voting for this resolution, but stand with reason and oppose the resolution!

    Done and done I put your masking back to "Member level." TWP is pretty open, so the only way I can restrict your access further is to delete your account completely. Let me know if the Member Mask is suitable. Thanks.

    A proposal by our very own @Kawaii. This evolved really quickly from its first form as a condemnation a week ago: A quite impressive amount of work that has been put into it in such a short amount of time!

    Last time noone liked this proposal: The discussion thread now doesn't look too enthusiastic either. Might well be the end of the current Nazi liberation wave.

    COPS Treaty banning

    This player's most recent attempt at gaining access to our forum has been met with another ban. I repeat: I find it disturbing that it has been so long and he still has time to harass us.

    Observations

    Amen. I'll continue the rant for you. I haven't watched mainstream or cable news in years. It's all worthless propaganda and lies. I'm much more informed than those buffoons. Even the local paper puts out "Breaking News" about things I've known about for months, sometimes years. It's pathetic. Most 'journalism' is dead. (There ARE good journalists, but they are hard to find - the media doesn't want them, they aren't entertaining enough for ratings.....gotta get that almighty cash!) And I see millions of idiots on social media regurgitating those lies. God help Mankind, the fundamentals of brainwashing are in play. Once upon a time I decided to buy a 22 rifle. World food reserves were low, the economy in shambles, and being in the middle of nowhere I need to make sure I can get something to eat if I need it. (Once upon a time a train derailment took out the power for a week here in the dead of winter, one must be prepared for anything here, no one else is going to take care of you.) A friend of mine is an ex-cop and border patrol. Used to go undercover infiltrating gangs. He makes his own knives, repairs guns. He told me I was choosing the wrong gun. "You're disabled, you need to be able to defender yourself when things go bad. You need a handgun." Okay, so I think about a 22 handgun along with the rifle. "No" he said. "A 22 will only make an attacker mad at you." He approved of the Smith and Wesson 40 I bought. I fired it once. I don't like handguns, I like rifles. I know it works, hope I never need it. If you are being attacked, cops won't protect you. They aren't there with you. And when they do get the call, they aren't going to be there for 20 minutes. You MUST be able to protect yourself. Look at those keystone cops in Broward County. They stood outside while the kids were murdered. They didn't protect them. The Sheriff told them to stand down. SWAT officers from another county trying to respond were disciplined for trying to help. WHAT THE HELL!?!?!?! Have you seen the video of Sheriff Israel speaking at a SWAT training session? He tells them they should "run and hide". WHAT THE HELL!?!?! That man needs to be in prison. Innocent children's blood is on his hands. The "No NRA" organization that's fundraising for gun control in Florida? They were formed the day after the shooting. Profiting from death. They were formed by the LGBTQ rights organization Equality Florida. The "No NRA" logo on their website is hosted on the Equality Florida server. Equality Florida is run by yet another Democratic organization of which Sheriff Israel is a member. It's a political sham. The money is headed for the Democratic National Committee, because the DNC is broke and desperate for money in an election year. FOR SHAME!!!! Raising money on the deaths of 17 children so you can get re-elected. There's a special place in hell for those people. There needs to be consequences for these horrendous actions, and it has nothing to do with guns. People are so terribly ill informed. My daughter and I went to see Black Panther last weekend. We think it sucked. They bragged about all this 'advanced technology' that no one else has. I've seen RL weapons much more advanced than that make-believe. You'd be stunned to know what's going on in the middle east these days. The GCC has weapons far beyond what the US has. There are mini-drone fired missiles that can implode a man in the middle of a crowd without harming anyone in the crowd. I've seen it in action. A man turned into a spray of blood and was gone. The crowd looked around trying to figure out what happened. Directed pressure wave explosions that can take out a gun emplacement without harming the soldiers. There are remote little 'Watchers' flying around everywhere in Syria. They took out all of Syria, Iran and Russia's generals. The war is all but over there, but the media will never tell you. ISIS is done too. North Korea threat is over, and Iran is next. Peace is breaking out all over the world and all the media can do is talk about hookers and broadcast know-nothing propagandized kids for gun control. Idiots one and all. There are US Navy ships with lasers now. Fighter jets with lasers. There are "Rods of God" kinetic weapons, which likely took out that mountain Kim Jong Un was testing nukes in. All his nuke scientists were killed. Hasn't been a nuke test or missile launch since then. Why do you think he's suing for peace now? Yes, there will be peace by the end of the year, although I'm hearing as early as late June. The Trump/Kim meeting is only a formality, it's already a done deal. They already met in November. The Korean War was never concluded, but it will be this year. It's a miracle. In coming years, things will get better for the North Korean people. Thank God! The media wants war and conflict, it's good for ratings. They don't give a shit about you and I. They don't want peace. They don't know how to make money off of peace. Did they report that Saudi Arabia and Israel are now allies? The GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) gave Israel $3 Trillion dollars to develop those advanced weapons. Yes, I said Trillion. The Saudi's have the money and the Israelis have the tech. GCC is why ISIS is gone. GCC is why Syria is over. GCC is slowing working on Yemen. The GCC has an entirely new kind of soldier. 50 of these soldiers amphibiously landed in Yemen and divided into two groups. One group attacked and killed 10,000 Houthis rebels. The other held off 40,000 rebel troops.Those 40k retreated from 25 GCC soldiers after they were reduced to 20k. And they are quietly supporting the protests in Iran that have been ongoing since December. The Mullahs are finally going down. Pay close attention to MbS in Saudi Arabia. He's a hero and is going to reshape the middle east. Women can now drive in Saudi, go to soccer matches, vote....all because of MbS. People are going to love him. It is the most bloodless, successful military actions ever. GCC was able to evacuate an entire ISIS held city without a single death. 200,000 were scared into evacuating the city without firing a single bullet. And that's just some areaa they won't tell you about. Major changes are happening worldwide. Changes for the better and the media doesn't want you to know about it because they can't monetize it. The world is changing. Don't be left behind. I could go on and on.....but it's all so far out of what people are being told, no one believes reality anymore because it doesn't match the lies they've been told to believe. More on Syria? To my knowledge, all but one of Syria's generals are dead. All Iran's generals in Syria are dead (this is helping the protests in Iran - the Revolutionary Guard is only able to defend Tehran now). They keep showing old clips of their top General Suleiman in Iran to try to cover up the fact he was killed in Syria. Russia has been pulling out of Syria for months. It's all over but the conclusion and clean up. It will take time yes, but the worse is over. Turkey invaded Syria again to attack the Kurds. They told their people they were victorious and showed film on Turkish TV to show the victory. The film was fake. The soldiers in the film were using blanks, not real bullets, it was file footage from training. The reality? The Turks lost bad, turned tail and ran home. They've been pretty quiet since then. Meanwhile, Hezbollah in Lebanon is in the process of being dismantled...again by the GCC. Things are safe enough in Lebanon that the US is giving the Lebanese Army new weapons. I've seen maps of all Hezbollah's missile sites and weapon stores scattered across Lebanon and Syria. They are going down. GCC is infiltrating them at the squad level. Where is CNN? FOX? NBC? ABC? CBS? BBC? Out to lunch worrying about social justice bullshit. TURN IT OFF! I've been privy to some very indepth, horrible truths lately. What's been done the past 30+ years is worse than you worst nightmare. 60 years even. Some of it I've known since the 90's, but damn....it's worse than I imagined. Turn off the fantasy propaganda. It's not good for you.

    Greetings TWP, Today I want to make the region aware of a situation that came up earlier this week after I had our treaty with the Kingdom of Great Britain repealed and our embassy withdrawn. The King and his Curia have threatened TWP and Osiris with war, intend to see our downfall. Furthermore, they have attempted to undermine Europeia. Several months ago it was discovered that the King Alexander, who otherwise goes by Don, is a pathological liar IC and OOC and an all around manipulative bastard. He lied about RL situations in order to gain sympathy and manipulate people in his region. This caused myself and others to leave the region and disassociate ourselves from KGB. However, we still had this treaty; which I was ok with provided more lies and deceit didn't surface. A few weeks ago it was discovered that Don was bringing back into KGB a nation known for harassing and bullying behavior who penned this apology letter: https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=421555 Knowing first hand what had occurred, I could not in good faith allow TWP to be associated with this individual or any region that harbors him. So after discussing this with the guardians, I decided to act quickly and dissolve our relationship with KGB. Earlier this week, one of our operatives sent me a long line of logs. The relevant ones can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/MZm7P After laughing voraciously at their thinking that they could coup TWP, I informed our friends in Europeia, Vice Chancellor Brunhilde and director of intel NES of the potential security breech. They have made sure that Europeia is secure. The newly elected President, Cat has decided to step down for her part in this. When these logs became public a few hours ago, the king has decided to abdicate the throne and quit NS. Don being a manipulative liar, I am sure will resurface soon. When he does, I ask that you remember what he has said about TWP and the intentions of his council. None of these people: Don Mountbatten (former king Alexander), Victor Lancaster (the new king William Victor I), Charles Lancaster, Cephal (Cornelius Tallyrand), and John Mountbatten should be forgotten for their role in attempting to subvert TWP and our allies. We will not work with KGB or the above individuals in any fashion. I would ask our allies to do the same. They are not to be trusted! When I first began diplomacy with KGB last spring, I was pleasantly surprised by the terrific people in the region. Many of them have chosen to come to TWP over the past few months to see what we have going on here, even becoming actively involved in our TWP community. Several were actively involved in getting this information to me as they understood the King was making poor choices. Those of you who have come here from KGB, I hold no ill will towards any of you and ask TWP to do the same. However, the individuals with the King in the Curia; I do hold you responsible for your statements and actions. Hail TWP! Badger
