I mean if they are policing transphobia/homophobia I’m fine with it, although I really think they should go out and touch some grass rather than spending their time sticking their noses into other people’s Discords looking for things they don’t like

You lot got targeted because some people didn't like your political views. Ironically, it's literally a fascist action.

Because iron crosses and "Hitler was good chancellor" should not be punished, right? "Litterlly nothing wrong with it"?

Iron crosses are just symbols? It's the same as putting 'xXx' or * in your name.
As for the latter, a moronic opinion, surely, but no more than that.

NEWS FROM THE FREE BLOC

Results of the recent TFB Chairman election.
A statement by the Soviet Federation of Eurasia, the new chairman of The Free Bloc

The Soviet Federation of Eurasia has been elected chairman of The Free Bloc. When he won, he said the following:

"First of all, I'd like to use this chance to thank those who trusted in me enough to vote me into office. I already led the alliance in the past, but now I for the first time do that through the mandate of the people. Thank you, deep from my heart.

Now, onto the important moments. Comrades, we are in the crisis. With significant loss in member regions, collapsed administration, weak structures, and dismissed Emergency Council, I and my Vice-colleague currently hold nearly all executive power. That won't do. Free alliance can't be turned into dictatorship. Thus, by having a discussion, me and Vice-Chairman So Pep came to conclusion that we'll need to restore parliamentary system in the bloc.

Free Consultative People's Assembly, or FPCA, was a very chaotic attempt at parliament. This would lead to TFB leadership and people dismissing it, and going with rules and legislations without parliamentary session. Emergency council, formed during these trying times, however, has proved ruthlessly effective and, what's furthermore important, had a parliamentarian structure. Thus, hereby, by my and Pep's first and hopefully last executive decision without parliament in this term, FPCA is abolished and replaced by Emergency Council, which has been reorganized into The Free Senate. All former councillors who's regions didn't leave TFB, except Chairmen, as well as some other bloquists who proven to be wise and knowledgeable are granted ranks of Senators.

And despite first senate being appointed directly by us, we are proud to state that in the future Senate will be an elected body.
First Senators are, as follows:

Burgundu
Sovetsya
New Hansa
Pacasmastan
Zor el scribe
Kasase"

Odrya rejoins The Free Bloc

Odrya has rejoined The Free Bloc.

This news was announced on the 13th of September by the Soviet Federation of Eurasia on The Free Bloc's Discord server.

"With majority of Emergency council voting in favour, it's my pleasure to re-introduce Odrya as the member of The Free Bloc," he said. "Welcome back, old friends. We missed you."

NEWS FROM SJEVRE

Sjevrean Prime Minister Solvein Morchands.
Sjevre-Rusnia war

Das viertes kaiserreich has sent German-Persian regiments to help The Armenians and the Kurds fight Romanum et Britannia Minor.

The German Luftwaffe has begun supplying aerial support for the Wehrmacht soldiers stationed at Gotland and have also started a blockade of Sjevre and are now believed to be planning an invasion of the country.

The Germans have proven to be so effective that the Sjevrean army has requested the help of their allies.

Despite this, at the Rusnian front, the Sjevreans proved to be successful in capturing the city of Kirov and they reached the Ural mountains soon afterwards.

The Rusnians attempted to start a major counteroffensive in Nizhny Novgorod with 40,000 men and have already recaptured it and dozens of other cities - the Sjevreans are attempting to encircle the Rusnians.

Sjevrean-Eastern German nuclear talks

Eastern abele german empire has restored power to the Chernobyl nuclear plant, which was previously destroyed in an explosion.

This made the Sjevrean government concerned about the safety and security of the plant.

Queen Catherine of the EAGE then invited the Sjevreans to the East German royal palace, where they would discuss the issue and tour the exclusion zone - the Sjevrean government accepted and sent Vladimir Usjkov and Pettri Mich-Kalstanaus to the Eastern Abele German Empire.

AN ANNOUNCEMENT BY FREDERICK WALLACE, THE NEW PRESIDENT OF TEXAS

General Frederick Wallace has won the recent elections in The Sovereign Nation of Texas. The former President William Carver was forced to resign after he became unpopular for letting General Alexander Ellis (head of the USNA Restoration League, a Texan criminal organisation) to leave the country. A few days after Frederick Wallace won, he made a speech announcing that the capital of Texas would be moved from Houston to Austin. The full speech is available below:

"When the first Republic of Texas was declared in 1814, it made Austin the centre of its power. And for the next 15 years it held it there until the early founders of the USNA came into our borders and completely suffocated our sovereignty and using the strength we accumlated to create the United States of New America, which would stand for nearly 200 years. From the port city of Houston, the Union grew it to be the centre of trade into the Americas, and in turn it became its identity. Since our independence, we have remained in Houston and remained relying on what defined the USNA. That ends now, I have formally began proceedings to move the full administration of The Sovereign Nation of Texas to Austin. The centre of our great nation. I shall be making the Texas Governors Mansion the temporary Presidential Residence, whilst construction of a larger and more gallant residence for all future Presidents down the line. This residence I shall be residing in is only one minutes walk away from the Capitol Building so I will have no excuse to be late for any meetings. The Capitol Building shall be moved into the largely expanded and restored Governors Legislature Building, renamed to the name it was given in the years of the Republic, the Texas State Capitol. Where in which both the Texas Senate and Texas House of Representatives shall convene. The government shall provide new living arrangements for all Senators and Congress men and woman in Austin. We are taking the necessary steps to make sure that this change does not effect the grip Houston has on being a centre of trade in The Americas. As well as the government buildings that are to be left behind, they shall be reformed and reused to continue the success of Houston. The Presidential Palace in Houston shall remain a Presidential Residence, for many decades it has been the centre of diplomacy and culture of which is shall continue to be.
This big first step is a step towards a new national identity for Texas. God bless the citizens of Texas, and God bless The Sovereign Nation of Texas."

UPDATES ON THE F.I.R. INSURGENCY

Ferretian peacekeeping forces.
Ferretian troops have recaptured over half of the territory that was originally owned by the Free Island Resistance.

They have faced some light resistance by guerillas.

The Ferretians have started a massive bombing campaign to destroy FIR bases.

The GBF Navy and Air Force have also begun using drones for spying purposes.

The FIR have managed to destroy several of these drones.

This, however, has not halted the GBF's advance through the mountains.

To counter this advance, the FIR is currently trying to launch an offensive in the south.

Despite this, most political analysts predict that the FIR insurgency has very little time.

A STATEMENT BY SJEVRE KLDU, OUR FOREIGN SECRETARY

"Hello Congress.

I suspect you want an explanation for the latest happenings in the LDU. You noticed this especially with the sudden closure of our embassy with TFB ordered by our Home Secretary. I spoke to him and it was a rash mistake to save our region. I can already hear the questions, why would it save the region? well. Yesterday morning (21 september) I received a telegram from the Black Hawks, as did the rest of the administration (and every region who has ties with the TFB). He warned us of possible dangers if we kept our relations with the TFB. Because of the history of the TFB with all the controversial posts, the Black Hawks hate the TFB and everyone associated with it. So I'm guessing the Home Secretary was stressing and using his power to allegedly sever our relationship with TFB. We're talking about it in the administration. I wanted to inform you of the course of events leading up to the latest events. Hopefully you will have had further information by the time of the release date of this paper, but that depends on the initiative of the President or VP."

If you wish to see the telegram that was sent to Sjevre by The Black Hawks, you can find part 1 of the telegram Linkhere, and you can find part 2 Linkhere.

Nominations for the next LDU elections have begun.

"I would request everyone to participate in elections and run government this time because me, Potenzia KLDU, Sjevre and Sulasburg - all of us have been in the government more then twice, I guess - so please, this time there should be some new candidates otherwise the executive offices will keep revolving around us few nations and that’s the reason [...] which I am not participating in elections for the second time," said Chitral KLDU.

SJEVRE VS RUSNIA - UPDATES

A map of the Rusnian front.
On the Rusnian front, the Sjevreans have successfully recaptured Nizhny Novgorod with encircling tactics.

Several Sjevrean army regiments are on their way to the Ural Mountains.

Meanwhile, on the German front, the Sjevrean High Council has reported a mass capture of hundreds of paratroopers from Das viertes kaiserreich.

All of the weapons they had were confiscated.

"The first success shows that Sjevre can certainly stand his ground against the so-called unbeatable German Empire that has been torpedoing the poor peoples of the Savraan Union for months with bombs and mustard gas." declared one Sjevrean tabloid newspaper.

"It is time to plan a counterattack, even if a perfect date hasn't come in sight yet."

The Sjevrean army is estimated to be about 4 times stronger than the German army.

However, the same cannot be said for the Sjevrean air force.

The Sjevrean air force and the German air force are believed to be mostly evenly matched.

The Sjevrean military high command has therefore estimated that it will not be easy.

However, Glory Be Ferret has been sending weapons and other military equipment to Sjevre for a while now.

These weapons could make it easier for the Sjevreans.

NEWS FROM VANTIER

400,000 Vantierian soldiers sent to Greater Rutan

After several weeks of preparation, the 400,000 new recruits in the military are now ready to be sent to Greater rutan.

They have been equipped with the latest in weapons technology.

The 6th mechanized infantry, 2nd armored and the 5th, 3rd and 4th infantry divisions will be sent to Greater Rutan to help General Justinian win the ongoing Rutanian civil war.

Vantier expands government surveillance program

All mobile phones in Vantier now have special software installed that monitors everything citizens do and say online.

If the software detects that you say something suspicious, it will send a message to the Vantierian Intelligence Agency (VIA).

The VIA will then send agents to your house to spy on you - once they gather enough evidence that you are a "traitor", your execution will normally occur in less than 4 hours.

Asians in Vantier given equal rights

South Asians and East Asians in Vantier have finally been granted equal rights.

The ruling Liberal Party has recognised the potential economic benefits of getting more people to enter the economy.

Despite this, the new equal rights policy does not apply to black people.

F.I.R INSURGENCY COLLAPSES

Revolution in OF Courscant

A monarchist revolution is taking place in OF Courscant - although it began shortly after President Klaus Lohannis announced that he would join the Sjevre-Rusnia war, the revolts currently seem to be unrelated to that.

The rest of the world first heard of the revolution when Lohannis made the following announcement over radio:

"Hello? Hello, can you hear us? We are broadcasting the last Romanian radio communication. Today, monarchist insurgent troops entered Bucharest and outside of the Government Building. We send brotherly love to Romanian Soldiers fighting in the Russian front. Romania has not yet perished. Long Live Romania!"

It is currently unknown who the new Tsar (Emperor) will be.

SJEVRE VS RUSNIA - UPDATES

Sjevrean Prime Minister Solvein Morchands.
Glory Be Ferret has begun supplying Sjevre with weapons.

Two Arleigh Burke class destroyer ships carrying weapons and Ferretian personel arrived in Sjevre a few days ago.

Despite this, the Ferretian Defense Secretary has made another statement stating that Glory Be Ferret will not deploy combat personal into the war.

Vantier's government was deeply unhappy with the fact that Glory Be Ferret was trying to help Sjevre and threatened to declare war on GBF if they didn't stop.

"Shall GFB not cease to aid our enemies in less than a week, the state of war will exist between Glory Be Ferret and the Empire of Vantier," they said in a statement.

"We wish for this diplomatic crisis to be solved soon, and we hope GBF realizes that helping our enemies will only make the war last longer, and thus trying to help the "good" guys may result in more blood being spilled, and more innocent lives being lost for a longer period of time. Vantier is a peaceful and rational nation, willing to negotiate and do anything to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people that do not deserve to die in this war."

In response to this, the government of Sjevre pointed out that Vantier's claim that they were "peaceful" was immediately contradicted by the civil war that had occured in that country just a few years ago.

Glory Be Ferret, meanwhile, pointed out that Vantier's ally (Das viertes kaiserreich) was involved in numerous war crimes and refused to stop helping Sjevre - they soon started sending military aid as well.

Vantier has also announced their plan to progressively send 200,000 troops to the Armenokurd front to fight Sjevre.

This gradual deployment will likely take many weeks or even months.

Meanwhile, troops from Greater rutan defeated the North African Democratic Coalition (NADC) near Tripoli. They have captured 5000 prisoners of war - these POWs will be sent back to Algiers soon.

ALEX DUVALIER ASSUMES COMPLETE CONTROL OF VANTIER

Alex Duvalier, leader of Vantier decided to expand the scope of his power by making the following reforms:

• The head of government and state will be fused into a single entity, the "Supreme Leader".

• The Supreme Leader will be the official head of state and government of Vantier, the supreme commander of the army and will represent Vantier abroad, thus having absolute power de facto. The Emperor of Vantier will be nothing but a figurehead with no power/influence.

• There will no longer be a separation of powers, and the Supreme Leader will be allowed to pass any bills, even if they aren't approved by the rest of the government.

• The parliament of Vantier will be dissolved.

• The salary of the Supreme Leader will be raised from 500,000 gold dions to 10,000,000.

The new "Supreme Leader" of Vantier has already used his new powers to slaughter 3800 anti-government militias.

This has been widely condemned by human rights organisations around the world.

THE LATEST NEWS FROM TEXAS

After several days of maneuvering, rangers from Texas surrounded a base owned by the USNA Restoration League (USNARL) - a Texan terrorist organisation.

They infiltrated the building and by the end of it, the USNARL members were forced to surrender.

Some USNARL members refused to surrender and were subsequently shot.

Some USNARL members attempted to escape in an F-16 plane.

The plane was shot down.

To celebrate the operation's success, Texan President Wallace organised a celebration to be held in Austin.

During the celebration, Texan flags were flown on almost every building.

A number of vehicles that had been previously stolen by the USNARL were showcased to the crowd.

The vehicles were used to carry the USNARL members who had stolen them.

The crowd shouted profanities and other vulgar language at the USNARL members.

President Wallace gave a one-line message that was aimed at the USNARL.

"Don't mess with Texas," he said.

His words soon made the front cover of every newspaper in Texas.

Following the invasion of the Ithacan Far East by Imperio de Cristo, the Union of Federated Republics began to funnel troops into the Far East as it had joined the Lotus Confederation prior. The Union found itself cut off from the rest of the Ithacan and Hellenic forces, however, as Imperio forces cut them off in the Cadia Pocket.

Following the encirclement, the UFR engaged in a prolonged resistance campaign as Imperio forces began to slowly and painfully close in the pocket, with 180 million brave UFR soldiers dying, while 300 million Imperio forces were taken with them. The bloodiest battle since the Kriegan failed offensive into Hej in 1998, the UFR fully committed to the war, assisting the Eastern Empire in finally capitulating the nation and assisting in the defense of the Hellenic League.

On February 2nd, 2005. The Tavamiian 5th Motorized Infantry stormed the Presidential Legation. This event ended up with the result of 2 dead interns and the President. General of the Armies, Tommi Liikanen holds the nation’s capital at this moment. Having recorded a public execution of the President with himself as the executor. Stating, “Tavamii was free before, then we joined the UFR, the opposite of what the people want! We will not be colonized once more! Kunnia Tavamii!” Ground news report that the rest of the army has mixed loyalties. However what is confirmed, 20 low grade field officers of the frontier border have formed an opposition force. Further news awaits to be seen.


Above: A section of the 20 mile trenchline with Kriegan troops defending against Cristo forces

Despite facing a numerically superior foe of 1.3 billion against a mere combined force of 6 million soldiers. The Eastern Empire demonstrated its might by crushing all offensive attempts made by the Imperios with mountains of artillery and naval shelling. Fearing their own imminent defeat, the Cristos would resort to a dastardly weapon. 11 Railguns loaded with tungsten rods. However before these weapons could be utilized, IKS intelligence provided intel on their positions and the ICBMs (non-nuclear) from Ûntershiva would fire, destroying them before they had a chance to shoot. Although the Imperios would manage to fire one of these rods, which would be stopped by the spirit of Viktoria some would say as the rod completely missed. The true target those rods were aimed at are still entirely unknown. Following just a week of fighting, Eastern Empire forces would bleed the Imperios dry before glassing their country from orbit with its satellite lasers. Subsequently annexing it and removing anyone who shows anything more than loyal submission.

Above: Mars

On February 20th, the Union of Federal Republics (UFR) would manage to land on Mars and established a small colonial settlement named Novozveda. Almost a day after this historical event, the Eastern Empire would launch its own colonial settlement over to Mars in a hurry to not be behind. It is unknown how relations with be on the Martian surface but this is a great step for all mankind.

SJEVRE VS RUSNIA - UPDATES

Sjevrean Prime Minister Solvein Morchands.
Forces from Sjevre have continued to maintain their winning streak against the Rusnia empire.

Things have gone less well against Das viertes kaiserreich.

The Germans have proved to be quite adept at aerial combat.

However, Glory Be Ferret is currently helping Sjevre out by shipping new fighter jets to them.

Meanwhile, things have gone absolutely horribly against The Armenians and the Kurds.

Vantier has sent a surge of troops to that front - this surge forced the Sjevreans to retreat from Kursk.

The Armenians and the Kurds has declared war on Eastern abele german empire.

The East Germans had allegedly encroached upon Armenokurd territory in Crimea.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Alex Duvalier of Vantier decided to pay a visit to Vantierian troops fighting on the Armenokurd front.

In what is probably one of the most publicised events of the entire war, Duvalier executed 113 of his own troops on suspicion that they were traitors.

The Armenokurds asked Duvalier to leave because of this - Duvalier then threatened to stop helping them, which forced the Armenokurds to let him stay.

Finally, Romanum et Britannia Minor has begun funding rebels in Iran who wish to overthrow the German occupiers in the area.

Iranian Shah-In-Exile Reza Pahlavi has also been regularly making speeches to give the rebels motivation.

A SPEECH BY CROWN PRINCE ARAM KARDASHIAN OF THE ARMENIANS AND THE KURDS

Crown Prince Aram Kardashian of the Armenokurd Kingdom gave a live televised speech on television - a transcript is below:

"People of the Bergregsrikh (Great/Mighty Kingdom), the time has finally come for the master-race to come into being! After over a centry, we are finally sure that the present generations are entirely pure Armenians and Kurds. On this very day, as they come of age, young Armenian and Kurdish men will be introduced to their Kurdish and Armenian brides, and the two halves of the Ethnos shall finally be united! Of course, the cowardly, evil governments of Sjevre and the Roman Empire are trying to destroy the Ethnos before it even begins, as they are afraid of what the all-powerful master-race may do to them. I call on every Armenian and Kurd to fight against these evil foreigners as they incroach upon our territory! We are living in the end times, as Aslan the Great's prophecies are coming true! We shall completely destroy them unless they surrender to the might of the Bergresrikh! Every man, every woman, every chil-"

The speech was then suddenly cut off and a "technical difficulties" screen appeared. Eventually, the Armenokurd News Channel (ANC) restored the broadcast, with the newsreader explaining that there were difficulties with the royal palace's broadcasting system.

CIVIL UNREST OVER TEXAS IMMIGRATION BAN

5 days ago, the government of The Sovereign Nation of Texas completely banned immigration.

The Texan government also stripped away many civil rights for Tejanos (native Americans) and Manumits (descendants of slaves from Africa).

This sparked a large amount of protests and riots in many towns across Texas.

El Paso is one of these towns - rioters in El Paso are attempting to completely take control of the city.

The police are only barely managing to prevent the rioters from doing so.

Some citizens have formed militias to suppress the rioters.

Some of these militias are currently working with the police.

The Tejanos and the Manumits have been forced to flee several major cities.

It is expected that further unrest and more fleeing will take place after the results of the recent Texan snap-elections are announced.

In other news, the hunt for more USNARL terrorists has continued. Their current target is Carl McDaniel, a former police chief who organised police forces to seize control of Oklahoma City.

The move has been widely mocked on the internet.

All oil assets held by Persian and African people have been blacklisted and nationalised, and the citizenships of all Persians and Africans in German-occupied areas have been revoked.

Furthermore, Persians and Africans are now no longer allowed to drive, own houses, enter public buildings or make financial transactions, and all of their savings will be confiscated and redistributed to the German nobility.

There are also reports that German forces have begun rounding up Persians and Africans into death camps.

Meanwhile in Brazil, the Germans living there are attempting to rebel against being ruled by Potenzia and Romanum et Britannia Minor, and they are trying to establish their own state known as the Armed Republic of Integralist Brazil.

Finally, there are reports that the Sjevrean army have captured Warsaw and Gotland and are now moving at lightning speeds towards Berlin - if so, then this may signal the end of the line for Das Viertes Kaiserreich.

Because of this, the German Kaiser, outraged at the incompetence of the German government and economy, has finally completely handed control of the economy to the private sector - however, the government did not break up the previous state-owned companies, but instead privatised them immediately. Because of this, the German corporations are now more powerful than the German government.
