    Christian Refugee Foundation Petition Fails

    Citing mainland European wars that have displaced untold millions, and a startling outbreak of legalized same sex marriage, the Office for Family Health (OFH) petitioned Covenant Congress today for increased funding in 2019 with the aim of creating a worldwide 'Christian Refugee Foundation'. Detractors complained the petition outlined a vague non-denominational outreach program, glaringly excluding Mormon teachings which many religious Cannie congressman base their political doctrines on.

    "I'm a Mormon man with Mormon constituents," Congressman Ammon Howle reminded the officers representing OFH, "why in the name of all that is ours and wholesome would I tie our wagon to that of Catholics or Orthodox believers who would sooner spit in my face than flip a page in the Book of Mormon?".

    Reeling from several rounds of similar objections, OFH then laid out a compelling narrative illustrating a future filled with pornography, homosexuality, and perhaps worst of all: abortion. "It is the opinion of this Office that our current planet is primed for imminent disaster," OFH Commissioner Layton Barnes replied, "Cantignia is but a small bulwark against all of this chaos, God help us." More Missionary minded Congressman then voiced their support, reciting the names of famous converted Mormons and statistics that suggest in some corners of the world Mormonism is the only growing denomination.

    Although they were unable to reach enough support for their greater proposition at day's end, the OFH still successfully appealed the Congress to approve a much smaller cyber-grant that appropriates money for advertising and translation of the FamilyHealth.can website. The expanded website would target nations like Auraria, Justosia, and other states gripped hardest by homosexuality and abortion. "We expect intend to also create plug-ins for the world, we call it e-armor, to block things like pornography and satanist propaganda from computer screens across Europe."

    OFH is expected to reconstruct their petition in the days and weeks ahead, working closer with opposing politicians as well as the Office for Foreign Affairs which earlier indicated it could not support OFH's mission without further detail and cooperation.

    Cantignia Quarantines & Concentrates All Engellexic Citizens

    With authorization from the King & Commissioner Felix II himself, Vesper Metropolitan Police and CBRNE Troops from the Land Army have surrounded the Engellexic embassy this Sunday evening, forcefully concentrating as many tourists or visa holders from the Great Country within before a midnight deadline. In just a few short hours, perhaps the most peaceful street of Vesper, 'Imperial Promenade', turned into a warz-one Cannie uniformed services striking down and arresting any known or suspected citizen from the Engellexic Republics, as they are called in the modern vernacular.

    The Covenant Office for Health has asserted at this time that the Engell Ambassador, James Naesmyth, is suspected of harboring the Engellpox disease and must be quarantined at the embassy along with hundreds of fellow Atheist Republicans. As winter approaches, the Covenant intends to quarantine and concentrate as many recent travelers to and from the Engell Republics of NoRCER & SoRCER.

    "Early this Wednesday we became aware of some 13 cases of what we are now calling the 'Engellpox'," Public Health Commissioner Matthew Black told reporters, "Symptoms include nausea, muscular pain, vomiting, and eventual collapse from dehydration from the disease." Perhaps only a flu like outbreak, Covenant officials are already taking this contagion very seriously. "The Old Country (Engellex) is a cesspool," Commissioner Black told the media, "that Vesper is the first spillover from their outbreak is no surprise, we are most devoted and loyal from the Old Empire."

    Foreign Office officials have also formally contacted the Republics of Sylvania, Seneca, and Beautancus; recommending that they identify and isolate the Engellpox before it gains a foothold on the Occidental mainland. No formal message to the Old Republic has been lodged at this time, though phone an internet communications are being allowed to transmit outside of the Engellexic embassy under close supervision of Covenant Signals Personnel.

    The Department of Health and Human Safety's Office of Communicable Disease Control stands ready to render assistance to prevent the further outbreak of "Engellpox" within the Grand Covenant and the Occidentian continent at large. DHHS has already begun quarantining flights from the First Republic and will also unfortunately have to begin a general quarantine of all inbound flights from Vesper until it can be determined that there will be no further spread of this deadly disease.

    "Cantigian political and martial philosophy places independent action at the level of lieutenant. Essentially we believe that a well indoctrinated lieutenant should not have to require permission to attack or defend at every stage of operations. How does that philosophy apply to the last 24 hours? Well, citizens of the Covenant began to die - all of whom were nearby residents of the Engellexian embassy, or 'employees' of an illegal cabaret operating within walking distance. Chief Covenant Health Officer Matthew Black took direct action, as is entrusted in him by myself and the Covenant Congress, by isolating infected individuals to the epicenter of events: the Engellexian Embassy."

Again however, the Covenant Congress and myself as Commissioner of these Offices have put full trust in them as Chief Officers to operate independently in a state of emergency.'
    *King Felix points a gloved hand at the shipping container behind him*
    "I would be a liar if I told the world this evening that I know with absolute certainty that the undocumented aliens who were brought here in that box are the property of an Engellexian Citizen, a Cantigian attempting to break Covenant law against the human commodity system, or another deeper darker party attempting to profit from the market of flesh in our fair Vesper!"

    "The hour for lieutenants in command and response to emergency is indeed over. This evening I spoke to King Orton, I've assured him that the Engellexian gentleman ambassador has the freedom to roam home or to the open arms of the Cussian Navy. Tomorrow I will be reaching out to Countess of Londinjou, a lifelong friend of mine, with the hope of keeping some some remnant of a centuries spanning relationship between our states."

    "To those outside of the Engellkin Sphere tonight, we welcome your prayers. May God bless our Covenant, and for God's sake: bless the Engellexic Empire forever!"

    Statement by Dr. Tobias Sprengers, team leader of the Eiffellandian team

    Let it be clear that the only reason why we are here is to find out what this Engellpox disease is, so that we can find a cure against it. We won't comment on possible human trafficking, because we don't have enough information on it.

    We agree with the government of Cantignia that the situation is serious. Human trafficking is also a serious problem. However, we consider it implausible that the SoCRER itself is responsible for it. Maybe some individuals in the SoCRER, but not the SoCRER itself. We ask the government of Cantignia to reconsider its decision to ask the Engellexian ambassador to leave the country. We also ask the government of Cantignia to concentrate on finding a cure against the disease for now. Finally, it would be good to find a different name for the disease than Engellpox. We let the doctors decide on that.

    Cantignia welcomes Eiffelland as a truly neutral party, hoping to facilitate their scientific doctors alongside countless others from around the world.

    On the initial advice of Cussian officials, and now the suggestion of Eiffelland: the Foreign Office and Health Office concur to permit free and unmolested travel of the Engellexian ambassador - though we are still unsure if the gentleman is infected. If the gentleman wishes to stay he may, and if he wishes to leave along with the Republican Mission - Cussian ships and troops are arriving to potentially escort him and his family away.

    Our mission has always been to minimize exposure to this disease, and prevent unnecessary loss of life. We do not wish to further blame Republican Officials at this time, because we cannot unequivocally say the humans trafficked in an Engellexian shipping container were truly claimed properties of the official human commodity system.

    Cantignia agrees to communicate with Engellexian officials through either previously offered Senecan channels, or those now offered by Eiffelland. We did not and will not remove our embassies to the Twin Republics; public and secret channels remain open to our offices in Vesper.

    Engell. Republic Bombs & Destroys Own Embassy in Vesper!

    Early this morning the Grand Covenant's Foreign Office and Army Air Force have confirmed that attack helicopters designated and identified as Engellexian military assets flew into Vesper with the sole purpose of bombing and destroying the Engellexian Embassy, presumably killing staff inside to include the Engellexian Ambassador. This violent move follows Engellexian Republic's joint decision to officially withdraw recognition of Sylvania and Cantignia, over the Grand Covenant's hard-line response to the escalating 'Engellpox Crisis', which the Health Office has since designated 'the H1B Virus'.

    Nations from around the world initially flocked to offer scientists and researchers, to include Sylvania, Seneca, Beautancus and Engellex itself. Scientists from the faraway mainland state of Eiffelland were soon ordered to leave the research mission by Beautancus, who alongside Engellex mustered what they called a "Humanitarian Task Force" comprised of Cussian and Engell naval forces. Seeking deescalation from the impending conflict, the Grand Covenant would go on to pull back the Land Army and most of its police presence from a designated "containment zone" near the Engellexian embassy, where recent arrivals from Engellex or those with symptoms of disease were being screened, held, or released by an international community of doctors and scientists.

    Cantignia tapped the Serene Republic of Seneca to serve as a neutral party that could observe domestic Cantigian response operations, and assure the peaceful intent of an incoming joint task force comprised of Engell-Cussian Naval Vessels that these nations told the media and the world would be a medical mission. Cantigian authorities at this time are maintaining no prior warning was offered by Engellex or assumed Senecan observers that the helicopter assault would take place, saying that the King & Commissioner Felix II ordered a full stand down of armed Covenant defense assets to ease tensions and ensure Cantigian parties would not be at fault for military mix-ups when operating in close proximity of foreign forces.

    The destruction of the Engellexian Embassy represents the deadly demise of one of the nation's original diplomatic guest missions, predated only by Sylvanian recognition and establishment of embassy mere months before. Personnel inside were also no strangers to the Vesper social scene, leaving behind many friends and associates from the nations capital to mourn their unexpected departure. Areas around the virus containment zone and embassy ruins are already being decorated with candles, flowers, and written prayers for the dead from Cantigians willing to risk the cold or worse to remember the dead.

    This publication would also like to offer its condolences to the dead, and commits to collecting donations to offer their families in Cantignia or elsewhere if they choose to accept it.

    The High Kingdom of Caledonia is deeply shocked by the lack of respect towards human life showed by the Engellexic Republic in all this crisis. The fact that Engellex is ready to send its own citizens to the gutter is deeply concerning and makes us weary of the potential lack of Engellexic respect towards other international actors and their representative institutions. We hope that the Caledonian Embassies will not suffer the same fate in the future.

    We also condemn the violation of the sovereignty of the Grand Covenant of Cantignia and believe that when a problem such as an epidemic starts to arise, it is not the problem of only one nation or people, but of the whole world. If this crises isn't solved soon, it might turn into a pandemic and as of yet, politics seem to stand tall and to put hurdles in the way of finding a cure. Should this pox start to spread it might be too late for actions, before it takes people by the thousands. Hence, we feel that those events in Cantignia are a black page in the history of Occidentia.

    on behalf of His Apostolic Majesty, High King Mael Coluim V

    The Azraqi Empire is deeply concerned at what appears to be a flagrant disregard for human life and also the territorial integrity of the Covenant of Cantignia.

    We demand immediate assurance this type of military operation will not be carried out by the Engellexic government or associated entities again or we will have no choice but to insist on the removal of the Engellexic diplomatic presence in Azraq in order to safeguard the lives of Azraqi citizens and subjects and indeed foreign nationals.

    Unified Colonies of Westernesse
    Office of the Exterior

    1712 Siward Avenue, Swanfleet, Swan River Colony

    November 23rd, 2018

    To the collected peoples and patriots of the Grand Covenant, to those bereaved by this tragedy, and to those involved in the recovery effort: the sincerest condolences of the Unified Colonies are extended.

    It is imperative to note at this time several points:

    • that, neither Captain Thomas Howland of the Thunderbird nor Commander Rowenna Hayes of the Spirit of Charity had any foreknowledge of the Engellexic bombing.
    • that, according to the observations of both officers, the role of Colonial observers has largely been very limited despite the Grand Covenant's requests - with limited cooperation by other parties in allowing them to operate in fact as inspectors and not merely in fiction.
    • that, nevertheless, the services of both vessels and their crew remain at the disposal of the Grand Covenant.
    The situation will be closely monitored in Swanfleet, as this slow chipping away at the sovereignty of a fellow Engello-Occidental power is not an affair to be taken lightly even if - especially if - done by the Old Country.

    King Felix Resigns as Commissioner
    Standing before a fully attended Covenant Congress called to special session, King & Commissioner Felix II addressed his subjects for the last time as “Commissioner” - a role traditionally held by the head of coalition government in congress. Felix the First famously won the popular vote in the 1960s following the ‘Crimson Catastrophe’ that eliminated the previous monarch and most of the Rydell dynasty, and controversially held the role by suspending the necessity for representative renewal of this unitary arrangement until this day.

    “This is not the end of Ilchester-Rydell or the institutions of nobility that have served in good faith to our common Covenant,” Felix told the congressmen, “but this indeed an acknowledgment that through my humanity I have not assembled the finest Commission for Cantignia today”. After fifty years of he and his father’s reign in civil politics, Cantignia has been transformed into a major source of oil and mined materials for the world, and Vesper a cultural hub for the new world north, no small feat for a set of territories deemed hardly habitable and worthy only for poor Mormon Pioneers and adventurers willing to endure the elements to form a Covenant based upon classical Engellexian traditions and Westernesse liberty.

    A certainly fatal avalanche of circumstances have crushed the image of Ilchester’s hold on power however. Peaking with the destruction of the Engellexian embassy and all formal relations, the Ilchester Commission has saw a series of Office Chiefs fail horrifically at the roles entrusted to them by him as Commissioner, or outright resignation such as Chief Rigby of the Labor Office who cited a commission riddled with backstabbing and intrigue that prevented him from upholding the needs of Cannie workers with any success.

    Forming the majority of the Pioneer Coalition in Congress, the once apolitical Winterhearth Mutual Benefit Society (now Party) reportedly called for the King’s resignation from the Grand Commissioner role in private session. Public approval for the King as Commissioner only recently fell below fifty percent, but the fall was so sharp and decisive that other parties such as Cannie Labor were willing to publicly call for legislation to formally withdraw congressional endorsement of Ilchester’s embattled Commission. Loyal to the end, and progenitors of the Covenant itself, the Mormon Caucus stood in applause for the King long after he and others had left.

    The legal contingency plan for this event, when a Commissioner is incapacitated or resigns, is that an interim Grand Commissioner succeds by seniority in the surviving Commission itself. Still remaining after the resignation of decades serving Foreign Office Chief and several other sackings of senior chiefs, the role falls to Oil & Mining Operations Chief Hubert Hogan of Hogan Mining Co., the Covenant’s largest mining conglomerate. Previously observed laws would also postpone a selection of a new Commissioner until a new Congress is formed by democratic vote in regular annual term. This current term concludes in January shortly after the New Year when most citizens have receded from the frontier for winter’s reign.
