FSA announced plans today that it is breaking ground for the "Antarctic Mission Control", a sensor and communications platform using trans-Newtonian technologies  to provide sensor data for the Earth-Luna area and communications for deep space exploration.   A timeline for completion has not been released.

Snap elections called for in the FSA!

In what was supposed to be a formality of announcing senators for life, became the announcement of snap elections in the FSA.  Senators for life were announced as John Swart, Emily Smith, and Tom Malherbe (National Front), Nelson Bophela (Peace Now), and Kelli Van Camp (Liberal Party).  Before the announcement, it was announced that the Iranian National Front Party was joining with the Lebanon based Amal Party under the banner of Amal.    Adele Van Resburg after announcing the new senators, discussed the party split, and announced that new snap elections were to be held on March 1st, 2101. 

It is expected that the National Front, and the pro business Liberal party will do well, with the ANC and hard right Volksparty facing a uphill fight.   The ANC and Peace Now, with their shared left wing are in talks to merge.

With the defections from the National front, and appointments to the senate, the current makeup of the houses are follows.

Lower house


National Front (51.5%) - 103 seats
Peace Now (12.5%) - 25 seats 
Amal (11.5 %) - 23 seats
Liberal party (10%) - 20 seats
Volksparty (8%) - 16 seats
ANC (6.5%) - 13 seats
 

Senate
Non-partisan 20 (71.4%)
National Front - 6 (21.42%)
Peace Now - 1 (3.57%)
Liberal Party - 1 (3.57%)

(Goodwill code (Volksparty - 16, ANC - 13, Peace Now - 5,  National Front - 4,  Amal - 4) )

From "The Eye" hosted by Panopticon

The Russians are reverting to their roots at last, attempting to block anyone else form claiming territory in space by saying "it belongs to all mankind" or some bull like that, you know what I think listeners? Of course you don't! You are all idiots, but I will tell you anyway, I think the Russki's never really escaped communism, that's right, you heard me.  It's been simmering there behind the scenes since World War Two! It's why they never really got good at anything except crushing the weaker, but richer neighbors and "redistributing" their wealth! They don't change! And now they want to convince us to agree to share what we find with them? What's next? Will they demand the nations of the world send them their wealth to so it can be equally divided!  I tell you people, the FSA is a bunch of godless heathens, but they had the right idea for once suggesting we agree to claiming those rocks in space. Sure as hell are better than the damn socialists in Russia!
And mark my words people, the administration here is filled with just enough pansies that they might actually accept it? It sickens me as it should sicken you!

Caller, you're in the Eye, do you think we should tell the Russians to go to hell, or are you a spineless lackey of the commies?

BBC radio is reporting at the FSA PM question time, there was a announcement that the Fajr project has met FSA build goals, and the option to build up to two more craft of the class will not be exercised.   The VSS Fajr is currently placing itself to intercept Earth vie Mercury, and the Tanzania is continuing to Saturn.   After a rest and refit, the Fajr will return to service as a courier craft.

Hello, this is Creig from Huston.  Yes the Russians should go to hell, so should those FSA folks.   Can't trust anyone who not from the NAU.   The Russians are just afraid since the FSA is launching ships, and we are launching probes all the time to explore, that they won't have anything to claim,  since they are just doing nothing but oppress their own people.   Also, I want to say something -- Everyone doubted me when I said I was picked up by aliens and they experimented on me.   and now the FSA says there are alien ruins.  I think they are secretly making deals with the aliens for crazy technology and they are saying it ruins so no one thinks there is real martians.

Creig you seem like an intelligent guy but, wait no, no you don't, you sound like you are off your meds Creig. I am glad you see my point in not trusting the other major groups and you are right that the Russkis are running scared at the moment, but Creig, there are no aliens, hell I don't even believe there are actually ruins on Mars! We only have the FSA's word for it and I don't see why we should trust that at all. My guess? It's a set up for the future, I bet our government is going to start a joint program up there doing cutting edge research and experimentation where no one else can see, and mark my words, the FSA will end up getting the better of the deal, our negotiators seem intent on giving away NAU sovereignty and aren't even trying to hide it! Crieg we don't need aliens to screw us, our government is planning to do it themselves, Creig find help, you are a madman but I thank you for your call.

Address to the Union, 14 February 2101.

"My fellow North Americans, mes compatriotes nord-américains, mis compañeros norteamericanos, today is an excellent day for the Union.  With the advent of the Trans-Newtonian Elements, our scientists and engineers have designed us a way to get rid of the nuclear threat once and for all.

The Department of Union Defense has just fielded a new weapon system called the Peacekeeper Continental Defense Center which will act as a better system than our old anti-ballistic missile systems from the 20th and 21st Century.  The Center is equipped would a new weapon system – the meson cannon – which will ensure that the Union is never harmed by the older generation of ballistic missiles.

We know that the Free State Alliance and the Union can reach an agreement to completely disarm our current stocks of nuclear weapons.  However, our analysis of the Russian Confederation highlights that they will most probably not agree to complete disarmament.  We are going to need to use a much stronger strategy to get them to remove their nukes.  As of 1230 hours today, our Ambassador to the UN and VP – Jonathan von Sheb – is delivering a very strong ultimatum to the Russians. They have 24 hours to evacuate and self-destruct their ICBM bases.  This is an unprecedented measure but the threat of nuclear holocaust warrants such stern measures.

In order to ensure that the Union is never again threatened by the Russian Confederation we will station observers in all Russian shipyard to prevent rearming and striking back at us. Finally, I have ordered the Union Armed Forces at DEFCON 2 just in case the Russians would try and test our resolve.

Ladies and gentlemen, today is a momentous event. It marks the day the Union is finally about to be free from the threat of conventional intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Thank you for your attention and good day.”

Election coverage.

The "Peacekeeper Crisis" is expected to have the following impacts on the FSA election.

National Front - Depends on outcome
Peace Now - Could be a major hit, as it would undermine a major platform
Amal - no impact
Liberal party - minor hit
Volksparty - groundswell of support
ANC No impact

The Free State Alliance has announced that it plans to launch three (3) De Beer class Scout probes from the Kenya launch complex, the first of 15 such launches. 
Launches will happen within the next 24 hours*.  Originally they were to be launched in groups of 4, however due to the current events it was decided that the first three launches should take place immediately.  This is a public announcement - staff from the NAU and Russia are welcome to witness the launch.

Associated American Press -

Accusations that the Russia government is evacuating its officers from its ICBM bases while leaving the soldiers behind are going viral on VRKontakte, Russia's main social network. A holo claiming to show Russian officers evacuating personnal belongings and data drives from the Dombarovsky has been shared over 10,000 times. It was not possible to check the holo's accuracy.

Russia Today -

Russian ICBM:s are reported to have been placed on highest alert and for the first time in many years once again aimed at targets on the american continent.

Russia Today got a quick statement from Colonel Ilya Vonranov, while being onsite overseeing deployment of ICBM:s in the eastern military district:
Me and my men do not wish for war, but if attacked we have our orders and will defend Russia. Like in the great patriotic war and many other conflicts through history the russian military will never give up and we will stand victorious in the end.
