The Democratic Presidential Candidate is Governor Crow of Kanawha.

We wish them both the best of luck in the election.

Exclusive: Nutrivend statement on the cure - Mishigamaa Editor

Exclusive announcement from the CEO of Nutrivend.

“We are investigating two possible cures for the infection. Our first has proven ineffective – we tested it in a limited area in Romero City, but unfortunately effects were negative. We tested with full support of the Mayor.

“We are now working with the White House to release a healing agent which should reverse the effects of the infection. We are waiting for White House permission to test.”

Are cures being traded for votes? - Adirondack Political News

Rumours have reached the Badger News that in certain cities cures, are only being distributed to people in exchange for votes.

When questioned about this, however, authorities denied the practice and stress that cures are being distributed in function of the city’s requirements and the distribution possibilities.

Let’s hope this rumour is indeed false. This would otherwise be a new low.

Cure distribution initiated - Powhatan Reporter A

Wagon and Lexcorp have merged and Governor Jon has gotten them to start distributing the cure to civilians. Hopefully all goes well from here.

Evacuation started in Albany. Governor will stay behind? - Adirondack Editor

According to the latest information the City Council is evacuating from the State House towards a nearby refugee camp.

However it seems like the Governor will stay behind together with State Troops. According to the State Office the Governor wants to keep his word and protect the State House. The eact reason for this is unknown.

Northland troops arrive – attacking abandoned Albany - Adirondack Political News

Badger News has received the first reports that Northland troops have reached Albany’s city limits.

Strangely enough, they appear to be attacking the Ombie hordes in the city on their own, instead of focusing on getting people to safety.

When pressed for information, the Governor’s press agent indicated that they were unaware of the arrival of these troops.

BREAKING NEWS: White House and Secretary of Defense Illegally Ordered Arrest of Mishigamaa Governor - National Reporter B

As previously reported, national media has learned of allegations that the DHS and the Pentagon told the Mishigamaa National Guard to arrest the Governor of Mishigamaa.

Since then, we have learned of far more disturbing developments.

In particular, the White House and the Secretary of Defense gave written orders for the Pentagon to coordinate with the Mishigamaa National Guard to illegally act in Mishigamaa.

According to our sources, it was the Pentagon (and not the Mishigamaa National Guard) that determined that such actions were illegal.

Given that there is written proof that the President gave authority for the Pentagon to act in Mishigamaa, it is now only a question of when (rather than if) the President and her Secretary of Defense are arrested and charge with high crimes and misdemeanours.

UPDATE – Insurrection by local police in Albany - Adirondack Editor

According to a statement from the newly appointed Chief of Police in Albany the “insurrection” is nothing more than a misunderstanding.

Badger News can only conclude it is still unclear who is really in charge in our State Capital and if the Governor is still acting in the people’s best interest?

Meanwhile the Governor, City Council and your Badger News reporters are still barricaded inside the State House.

Latest rumours say we will soon be evacuated…

Editor in Chief Runs for President! - Kanawha Editor

I, the Editor in Chief of the Kanawha Newspaper am running for President of the United States of America! I have been dutifully representing the voice of the people during this pressing weekend, and I have been the only voice of reason amidst all of this chaos. I hope you will consider giving me your support.

Northland troops seen in North of Adirondack - Adirondack Editor

Locals in Plattsburgh and Saratoga Springs have reported the presence of Northland troops in their area, apparently moving towards the city of . However, Adirondack State Governor Tim Duerinck claims to have no news about the whereabouts of the Northland Army. There is still no clarity about the intentions of the Northland Army on our grounds.

 

 

Zombie cure? - National Editor

Nutrivend claims to have discovered a cure and will be testing it shortly in the city of Marquette; results to be announced shortly.

DHS and Pentagon Illegally Ordered Arrest of Mishigamaa Governor - National Reporter B

The national media has learned that the DHS and the Pentagon previously told the National Guard of Mishigamaa to arrest the Governor of Misghigamaa. DHS and the Pentagon attempted to convince the National Guard that the Governor was unstable and not fit to govern.

The National Guard subsequently determined that such orders were both illegal and immoral. They consequently refused to comply with such order.

It is unclear at this time whether the order was due to the fact that the Mishigamaa Governor is currently running for president and does not appear to be favored by the White House.

This leads to the question of whether the White House has taken advantage of the crisis to further its own political agenda over the well being of American citizens.

Ombie hordes cured – Politicians fighting to claim prize - Adirondack Editor

2 Ombie-infected hordes have effectively been cured in the city of New Amsterdam. The cure is currently being deployed by helicopters.

Meanwhile, the governor and the city mayor are fighting to take on the honor of developing this cure. There is hereby no clarity about who is responsible for the development of the cure and it might as well have been developed in another state or by another company.

Anyhow, most importantly: THERE IS A CURE!

Sadly, politicians still seem to be more concerned with their image than with curing their people.

Sad Note – Badger News Albany offices demolished - Adirondack Political News

Word has reached us that our Albany offices have been demolished in the past hours.

It is a sad day for free press when the base of your operations has been demolished.

However, we keep on reporting from another location and we have every confidence that our proud nation will overcome this crisis.

Cure being mass produced by NecroTec in Ouisconsin - Susquehannock Reporter D

As we speak, samples of the cure are on its way to NecroTec, Ouisconsin to be mass produced. The states of Adirondack and Wabash are mass creating the delivery systems to be used by the states of Adirondack, Wabash and Susquehannock, who has been delivering the cure.

Helicopters provided by another state, but under the control of the governor of Susquehannock are transporting the delivery system. The delivery system will be filled with the mass-produced cure at the NecroTec factory in Ouisconsin, after which they will fly back to Susquehannock for distribution. Adirondack and Wabash will retrieve their filled delivery systems in a similar way.

Big Pharma, Big Prices – A cure – but at what cost? - Ahao - Naomi Young

The white-house liaison has confirmed that corporations in other states have been asking for zombie samples, but that they are offering nothing in return. She stated her worries about the price of any cure, that it may be vastly inflated. She also confirmed there was no governmental research going on, that the only research was the pharma corporations, so it seems that people will literally have no choice but to pay whatever the companies are asking for.

Correction to Presidential nominees - National Editor

Governor Hollman is the VP nominee and Governor Osa is the Presidential candidate

Editorial – Politics, really? - Adirondack Political News

In the past hours, Badger News has received a press statement from Governor Deurinck that he intends to run as vice-president to our neighbouring state’s Governor, Mr. Verbeek.

Really, this is what he has been doing these past days? Wondering who he should run with for the preliminaries?

As already highlighted in our previous editorial, one can only wonder what the people in charge are thinking. They are putting their own personal ambitions ahead of the safety of the people.

This can clearly not continue like this. We strongly urge our leaders to look deep and hard within themselves and come to their senses.

Badger News will not spend any more ink on the political ambitions of our leaders as long as the crisis is not solved.

We strongly urge our leaders to come to their senses and get their priorities right!

BREAKING – Insurrection by Local Police in Albany?! - Adirondack Editor

Reports tell us that local police forces have tried to capture the Governor. National guard troops have interfered and taken the chief of police captive! More info soon…

Whatcha gonna do when they come for you? - National Reporter A

It has emerged that the big four pharmas are hoping to put their heads and resources together to develop a single cure for the ongoing phenomenon.

Bay City has now also appealed to the White House for help to bomb the city in light of the ombie overrun.

However, neither the pharmas nor Bay City have heard any responses from the White House.

Perhaps everyone at the White House have now taken to relaxing at the golf course whilst planning for the 4th July celebrations?

NA university finds cure to Ombie virus - Adirondack Editor

The University of New Amsterdam, supported by the state and the city of New Amsterdam, has found a cure to the widespread Ombie virus, thus claims New Amsterdam mayor Elina Gouliou. It is being deployed in the city at this very moment and production is continued in order to distribute the cure to other infected areas. Hopes are that the Ombie outbreak can finally be contained and resolved.

 

 

In Its Hour of Panic White House Hides from Press and Public - National Reporter B

In the midst of an ongoing crisis where transparent leadership from the White House is more important than ever, the President and her support staff have become increasingly paranoid about the role of the press. On numerous occasions when asked for comment on various aspects of the situation, the President has stated either, “No comment” or “We are dealing with it” with no further explanation.

The unwillingness of this administration to inform the public what is being done to stem the tide of bloodshed and chaos is a cause for grave concern.  This great country has always depended in significant part on the role of a free press to inform the public and keep tyranny in check. This is the why our Founding Fathers enshrined the rights of a free press in the First Amendment. For as long as the White House continues to refuse to provide substantive comment and input to the press, it is clear that the administration values its political reputation more than the most important values of our nation.

Homeland Security: We Have a Cure – Distribution by either Aerosol or Dart - National Reporter B

Homeland Security has informed national media that they have developed a cure and have developed two delivery methods: aerosol and darts. They are currently in the process of determining which method to use. While the national media welcomes this news, it is intriguing that numerous state and local governments appear to have developed a cure before the federal government. Perhaps the federal government’s prior preoccupation with nuclear weaponry, which has been confirmed through confidential sources despite protestations to the contrary from the White House, was the cause of the federal government’s lackadaisical behavior.

Badger News Site Hits New Record - Badger News

Whether it’s election fever or the zombie virus, this weekend has seen the most activity since the site was originally launched – over 500 articles published since Friday evening!

NA sends burning oil tankers towards Ombies - Adirondack Editor

New Amsterdam has got a new tactic in their fight against the Ombies: setting boats full of oil on fire and sending them towards Ombie infested areas.

Who ever said oil wouldn’t save the world?

White House: 4th of July Party Still Planned Despite Mass Casualties and Panic - National Reporter B

Despite massive casualties across the country, numerous states of emergency declared, bombing of American cities by US federal forces, and unprecedented panic, the White House continues to plan to go forward with its 4th of July picnic. It is unclear if the White House will learn that the lives of its citizens takes precedence over hot dogs and burgers.

Mass panic across Mishigamaa - Mishigamaa Editor

Following the mayoral confrontation with the state governor, there are reports of mass panic and riots across the entire state, with some reports claiming that the National Guard are beginning to desert their units to return home to protect their families.

The governor stonewalled the mayors’ demands and has refused to step down or declare a State of Emergency.

City Updates:
– Romero: Still defended, but situation is deteriorating. May re-instate emergency declaration. Rebuilding field hospitals and fortified base of operations with LexCorp. Mayor now declared “Interim State Governor”, and will attempt to run defence of state from there.
– Spearing: Police Chief captured by Free Militia. Militia demands federal response to save city and admit responsibility, or will execuse him. Deputy Mayor Hunt is running for Mayor, and declares Spearing one of the last safe bastions against the outbreak.
– Grand Rapids: Mass panic, Nutrivend CEO staying in secure facility to work on cure. Chief of Police has been infected. Mayor intends to force governor to declare State of Emergency.
– Bay City: Quarantined and overrun. Federal drones bombing infrastructure to strong infestation spreading. City of Police condemns Mayor for failing to coordinate City Evacuation, instead working for political gain. Police Chief declares intent to run for Mayor.
– Marquette: Fully infested by the outbreak. No news on additional funding bid.

Nutrivend Sends Dangerous Research Specimens to Shawnee News Office - National Editor

In an act of incredible ineptitude, Nutrivend has sent dangerous research specimens to the Shawnee News Office, unnecessarily endangering the lives of our colleagues and setting back future research efforts.

Where’s FEMA - Powhatan Editor

The National guard was never meant to be an army yet they have to like one why? FEMA or the federal have been called by the state of powhatan though they have not come. There has to be some blockage on the federal level for why this is happening. Most likely someone maybe in the pentagon or the white house has partnered with the corporations so they can get something out of it

Bombs fall in London - Northland Editor

London Ontario has taken drastic measures against the undead menace.  An airstrike demolishes areas next to Lake Erie, taking out zombies and abandoned homes alike.

“This is our second airstrike,” the mayor said smugly.  “Our FIRE trucks have also proven quite effective.  I’m sure there were no civilians in the area.”  The mayor was wearing a horrific zombie skull as a helmet at the time of the statement, appearing totally unafraid of infection.

The mayor of London showing off their new weapon.

 

Governor Jon Drops Out - Powhatan Editor

Governor Jon has decided to drop out of the race for president and endorse Mayor Mike who has officially started running for president also has the full support of both the Republican Charlottes Ville and the Democratic Roanoke. Governor Jon is now running to be reelected as Governor, with Mikes support. Mike believes that one of the reasons the Governor is so disliked is that he was dealt a bad hand he did his best and pulled through everything and our city was bettered by his support.

Big four pharmas fighting over a cure - National Reporter A

Whilst Nutrivend had been singled out as the exclusive partner of the White House earlier, it now appears that the big four pharmas – Weygand, Necrotech, Lexcorp and Nutrivend are now going head to head against each other to be the first to identify the cause and cure for the zombification phenomenon.

However, it would seem that Nutrivend is still at the head of the pack, having claimed to have sent their first shipment of NutriSpeed to the Grand Rapids Police which had “give(sic) them an edge in controlling the outbreaks in the city”.

Necrotech is currently appealing for additional resources to fund its ongoing research and development, and the other two pharmas have not replied to our requests for an interview by press time.

One would wonder how Nutrivend had such stores of resources and why it has such strong vested interests in this matter.

 

Wabash in Disarray – Badger News Team Forced to Flee - National Editor

Due to a complete breakdown in the situation in Wabash, national media has learned that the Wabash branch of Badger News is being forced to flee. Any efforts that can be made by local, state, or federal authorities to assist our colleagues in this harrowing hour would be greatly appreciated.

 

To our colleagues on the ground in Wabash: Good luck and God bless.

Editorial: who’s in charge? - Adirondack Editor

The redaction of Badger News is more and more faced with contradicting communications.

On the one hand we have Governor Duerinck communicating about trying to recapture the city of Albany. On the other hand the mayor of Albany is telling us that they plan to evacuate all citizens from the city, while trying to keep all Ombies inside to eradicate them.

It is not clear to Badger News what the real plans are, but one thing is clear: there is no clear collaboration between the two parties.

As Badger News is being relocated, we can only see that authorities are struggling to control the situation. If on top of that there is infighting between the different persons in charge, the population is further at risk.

We ask one thing from the people in charge: do your job, keep people safe.

 

Joint statement from Mishigamaa - Mishigamaa Editor

“We are calling out the Governor to resign immediately, due to her poor decision making and failure to bring in the National Guard to save the people.”

They demand that she either call a State of Emergency instantly, or stand down to make way for someone who will.

They propose the Mayor of Romero City to stand to take the Governorship.

Is this a Democrat plot to take over State government? Or a simple cross-party consensus to deal with a major crisis?

The Governor responded to this with “No comment.”

A meeting is currently underway between the governor and the city mayors. The Bay City mayor is confronting her angrily. More on this story to follow.

White House: Nuclear Breach is in Northland, not Mishigamaa - National Reporter B

The White House has stated that the previously reported nuclear breach in Mishigamaa is actually located across the border in Northland. While discussions are apparently underway between the White House and the Northland Prime Minister, the White House is unwilling to share any details with a concerned public.

Governor and NA mayor claim vaccin is found - Adirondack Editor

No clear timeline or distribution channels have been communicated at this time.

Breaking News: Necrotech May Have Cure in Ouisconsin - National Reporter B

National media has learned of reports that Necrotech may have developed a cure in Ouisconsin. Further reports as the situation develops.

The cure is here! - Susquehannock Reporter D

Luke Doodeman (Emergency Services Chief of Yorborough) and Bram Hesselink (Deputy Emergency Services Chief of Yorborough) are leading research on a cure to the zombie infection, together with the cities of Erie, Allentown, Yarborough and pharmaceutical company LexCorp. State police has been helping with a financial injection and by introducing LexCorp to the research. LexCorp has commited to produce the vaccin at a reduced cost. The researchers are stressing that it is their intent that the cure cannot be used as a weapon, but only as a cure; “This needs to stop!”.
A Cure has now been found, but is still in need of a delivery system. LexCorp is currently working on this delivery system.

Feds bomb Bay City - Mishigamaa Editor

Reports have come in, confirmed by City Hall, that the federal government have started using drones to bomb key infrastructure such as bridges in Bay City, to try and stall the “Alternatively Animated” threat.

A source in City Hall claims the authorities have abandoned the city and refuse to deal with the direct threat to the populace. Our source believes that the Governor is completely wrong to have not issued a State of Emergency.

President re Northland’s Offer of Military Assistance: “No Comment” - National Reporter B

When asked about the offer of military assistance from the Prime Minister of Northland, the President replied, “No comment.” In the face of an unprecedented crisis, it is highly concerning that the President appears to be unwilling to take decisive action as needed.

Northland: offering help or invading Adirondack? - Adirondack Editor

Over the past hours, several statements have been received from different branches of the government with regards to possible involvement of Northland in the ongoing crisis in our proud state.

First there was the news about an airstrike that was supposedly taking place on New Amsterdam by Northland airplanes, which has been denied by the federal authorities.

In the last hours, the Governor’s office has been issuing statements about the possible involvement of Northland ground troops in the ongoing crisis. The latest rumours are that this operation would be allowed by the White House. The Governor opposed such an operation, as he is afraid that this operations is actually a hidden attempt at annexation of our state to North Land.

 

White House State Liaison to meet with Terrorists - Mishigamaa Editor

White House State Liason to meet with militia groups to discuss possible locations and instigators of the outbreak – such groups have been accusing the federal government of collaboration.

Rumours are circulating that the militia groups may try to kidnap the Liason officer.

“Let us help” – Northland PM - Northland Editor

Northland troops are gathered on the border to Adirondack, prepared to help with the zombie crisis.  “We are waiting to hear back from the White House before sending in troops” says the Prime Minister.

When asked about the problems within Northland, including a shootout on the tarmac of the Toronto airport with armed, desperate refugees, the PM responded “we have everything under control here.  We’re trying to help people who need it more.”

Update from New Amsterdam - Adirondack Political News

According to the Mayor of New Amsterdam they are working together with the Chief of Police to organise a militia to help combat the Ombie treat. Help from the Pentagon has also been confirmed.

At the same time according to the Governor the state has organised a mega game as charity event in New Amsterdam. The subject of this Mega game is the Ombie situation itself so the citizens can see for themselves how difficult it is to search compromises. This charity event revenue is going to helps people in need

Secretary of State: “We are waiting passively for things to happen.” - National Reporter B

National media has learned from well placed sources in the federal government that the Secretary of State and the Secretary of the DHS are currently engaged in infighting rather than taking productive action to counter the ongoing crisis. While the Secretary of DHS has pushed for increased action, the Secretary of State opined that their hands are tied while they wait to hear from forces on the ground. According to our source, the Secretary of State then stated, “We are waiting passively for things to happen.”

In the face of overwhelming casualties, this publication is concerned just how many more “things” need to happen before the Secretary of State takes action.

VP and Joint Chiefs Rule Out Nuclear Option - National Reporter B

Despite rumors of tactical nuclear weapons being taken out of storage by the President, the Vice President and the Joint Chiefs have ruled out the use of nuclear weapons on the American population. The Vice President emphatically stated that they were focused on looking for a cure for the current outbreak of infected (that are definitely not “zombies”) and that the White House would not take nuclear action.

Emergency council decides on action plan - Adirondack Political News

According to the Governor’s office during the emergency meeting between the governor and city officials it was agreed upon to use the Army and National guard to try and secure the major roads in between the cities. This should allow the government to contain the outbreak of the Ombies.

There are also rumours about troops from Northland coming into action within our state. It’s is unclear who has approved these actions.

Air strikes remain a means of last resort in case other measurements fail.

Refugee camps taking shape around Syracuse - Adirondack Editor

Badge News was informed by the White House press agency that the first three refugee camps have been established by army engineers around the base of the National Guard in Syracuse.

As the population is on the run, the authorities want to inform them that refugee camps will be established as the Army and the National Guard advance towards the big cities in the state.

Homeland Security Press Release - National Editor

Official statement from Homeland Security states that they are:

  • continuing to work closely with companies and universities to develop cure
  • work is progressing quickly towards this aim but we urge citizens to remain calm
  • continuing to follow all leads to investigate the source of the outbreak

When questioned about this further, the Press Liaison Officer was not at liberty to say why the Federal line has not changed since the initial outbreak. Surely some more concrete action needs to be taken to help our country, which is being ravaged by an infectious zombie outbreak that seems to be out of control.

But as Homeland Security says… “don’t panic”

FEMA Finds Majority of Corporations Uncooperative in Face of Crisis - National Reporter B

FEMA has informed the national media that they are working closely with Nutrivend on treatment of the infection, but has found most other corporations to be unresponsive and unhelpful.

 

Notably, the national media has heard reports that Nutrivend of Mishigamaa has  been stealing corpses from hospitals without the permissions of the families of the deceased, which raises questions about the moral standards of FEMA.

Communication from Albany mayor to all - Adirondack Editor

Badger News has received the following communication from the mayor of Albany:

PSA: Emergency Council meeting organisation

This is a notice intended for all political bodies in the state of
Adirondack:

The Governor has requested an emergency council to organise the
counter-Ombie efforts in the state. Due to continued concerns about the
health (and a possible infection) of the Governor, the Mayor of Albany is
organising an emergency council meeting by telephone. All invited parties
will receive the necessary information to join the council meeting.

The Mayor of Albany continues to care for everyone’s safety and health, and
by preventing travel and possible exposure to infection, state governing
bodies can continue functioning effectively.

We do not know if there are clear indications of the Governor’s infection or not, but it is strange in such a time of crisis to request all mayor political players to be present in person in a city overrun by Ombies.

Statement from Sec of Def re Military Aid - National Reporter B

The Secretary of Defense informed national media that the following states and territories have requested and received military aid:

  • Illiniwek
  • Wabash
  • Susquehannock
  • Adirondack
  • Ahao
  • District of Columbia.

With regards to the situation of Boyle City, Wabash, the Secretary stated that Boyle City has been evacuated by the governor. With regards to political developments involving the governor, the federal governmental stands at the ready to help and has full confidence in the (Republican) governor of Wabash.

Romero City – A tale of two political parties - National Reporter A

The citizens of Romero City will be given VR headsets in what seems to be a bid to blind them to zombie attacks and questionable political campaigns.

Along with the announcement of free VR headsets, the Republican state governor, Maria Osa, has announced her candidacy for President.  In an interesting twist of political fate, her candidacy is supported by Pollyana, the Democratic Romerean city mayor.  This would be America’s first cross-party liaison for Presidency.

When questioned if this was the right time for the State to be spending funding on VR headsets, the representatives from Romero City remained adamant that this was the right thing to do, as the VR headsets seek to ‘educate the public’ about calm in the current state of turmoil.

The result of the liaison between Democrats and Republicans remain to be seen, as that between VR headsets and zombie attacks.

 

 

BREAKING: Weygand and Government accused of creating outbreak - Mishigamaa Editor

The Free Militia have captured Waygand Corp HQ. On interrogating their records they have found evidence that their lab in Bay City was the originator of the outbreak and that they had been working with the Federal Government.

This links in with previous reports that a LexCorp facility in Bay City could be the source, which was being investigated by local police forces, and observations that the State Government abandoned Bay City to the hordes very early on, rumoured to be a coverup for their corporate dealings.

The Governor denies this, and claims that National Guard deployment were unable to get into the city to assist. As a result, they had to quarantine the city.

More on this story as it develops.

Ground Zero closer to discovery - National Editor

An unnamed but impeccable source has told us that Nutrivend caused the virus outbreak.

Apparently they’ve been stealing corpses for study for a while now, and their blundering experiments unleashed the virus.

Our reporters will be following up on this to find out what else the company has been doing, since it moved its headquarters to Missigama.

I’m sure the Mayor of Misquitte isn’t quite so happy to have asked to be quoted as saying that Nutrivend would bring a huge amount of benefit to the local community in the form of job creation when Nutrivend first opened its new headquarters less than a week ago.

 

Mishigamaa State Update - Mishigamaa Editor

State Governor says that declaring a state wide emergency was the right decision allowing her to keep control of the resources and co-ordinate Cities. Governor allocating all resources possible to aid Cities. No intention to declare State Wide emergency in future.

Romero City expected to raise state of emergency shortly. Mayor wishes to offer assistance to more of the state, while the State Government praises them as a model of how to react under a crisis.

Bay City however, is to be placed under State Lockdown, evacuated and abandoned. Press announcement from State officials to be expected shortly. A anonymous source from within the police department blames this on the Chief of Police failing to negotiate adequate resources and failing to make use of state supplies, while the State Governor promised assistance from the National Guard which never materialised. My source believes that the city was abandoned by the state right from the state of the issue. Was this a ploy to prevent full investigation of the LexCorp facility?

Marquette is not doing too badly, but has major divisions among its officials. The Police and other Emergency services are no longer cooperating in tackling issues, while the Mayor is reported to be campaigning instead of coordinating the defence efforts. She reportedly abandoned

Grand Rapids is now the last of the five major cities to declare a state of emergency. The Mayor would like to issue a bit shoutout to the efforts of all its emergency services. Angry mobs have formed at the hospital and Nutrivend HQ. Bereaved familes have had the corpses of their loved ones removed from the morque, and suspect Nutrivend of turning them into more Alternatively Animated.

As far as Spearing goes, the State Governor would like to praise the City Officials and Police Force for saving her mansion and family, but they do not deny reports that the majority of civilian protection has been outsourced to militia armed by the state.

It is unclear how much money is at stake in this high-profile contract at this point.

The Well Ordered – responsible for global ransomware attack? - Mishigamaa Editor

Our sources have corroborated evidence to identify our former anonymous source claiming credit for the global ransomware attack as a member of “The Well Ordered”, a suspected terrorist group which Nutrivend accuse of trying to source biological weapons.

A kill switch has apparently been found for the ransomware virus, which is no longer spreading through global banking systems. However, The Well Ordered have not come to an agreement with the US Government, and intend to continue their attacks to prove UN involvement in the Blight outbreak.

Pentagon unresponsive to pleas from Wabash national guard and liason – Wabash Governor Incommunicado - National Editor

National media has learned that the Wabash national guard and the local liason from the pentagon have repeatedly emailed the Pentagon asking for assistance. Unfortunately, despite the terrifying and deadly crisis, the Pentagon has not responded to the pleas for help. The horrifying situation is compounded by the Wabash Governor’s failure to communicate with the White House.

GLOBAL BANKING ATTACK - Mishigamaa Editor

The Mishigamaa press office has been contacted by an organisation claiming to be responsible for the “WannaBeFree” ransomware attack affecting global financial systems.

“We have hijacked the global financial system. We understand there is a conspiracy behind this ‘zombie virus’ outbreak, and that the UN is behind it. We demand that the United Nations and Federal Government step up and reveal their plans. Until they do, we will refuse to release the global financial systems from our control.”

This comes from an anonymous source who did not wish to be named.

BREAKING: Secret Lab in Bay City origin of outbreak - Mishigamaa Editor

A source wishing to be described only as “a patriot” has informed this paper that they believe the source of the outbreak across the entire nation is a secret lab situated in the Bay City area in Mishigamaa.

This information is gained by the source through interrogating captured infected persons.

If true, then is this, as suspected by some, the result of state experimentation or corporations meddling with nature in the name of profit?

Governor infected?! - Adirondack Editor

Recent statements of the Governor’s office stated that the National Guard had secured the State House. However our flying reporters send us disturbing images from the scene! It looks like the Governor is completely surrounded by the Ombie Hordes!

Is the Governor already infected and trying to strong-arm Badger News into publicizing fake news?! Footage from the scene:

BREAKING: WABASH HAS FALLEN - National Reporter A

ERRATA- We would like to apologise for referring to the state of Wabash incorrectly as ‘Boyle’, as we were quoting verbatim from the President (who apparently had a ‘covfefe’ moment, bless her)

BREAKING NEWS: The city of Wabash has fallen to the ‘infectious disease’ that has been sweeping America.  The President has expressed that her thoughts are with the city, but does not see the need to declare a state of emergency just yet.

Governors of cities overrun by infection are urged to reach out to the Federal Government to request for aid.  The President made reference to cities who have previously showed resistance to federal aid, and continued that Governors and the Federal Government should be on a two-way street as the Federal Government will not be able to provide aid effectively if information is not volunteered to the Government in the first instance.

The President continued that the Government desperately needs more information to “understand the situation”, but assured this paper that the Federal Government is prepared and adequately supplied to extend aid to cities upon request.

When pressed further, the President refused to comment on the the two captured specimens.  However, from a separate conversation this paper had with FEMA, we understand FEMA is reaching out for help from corporations to aid the Government in its time of need, with regard research on the captured specimens.  The President is, however, still debating if the famed 4th July Picnic on the Gardens should still go on.

The conversation with the President and FEMA underscores the current state of turmoil within the White House, as lack of information and panic permeates through each level of the Administration.

God bless America.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Homeland Security asks: “What is Governor Deurinck doing?” - Adirondack Political News

What is our governor doing?

Several parts of the government are concerned by the performance of Governor Deurinck.

Homeland Security has communicated that the Governor is failing to instruct and coordinate their efforts to combat the zombie outbreak.

This comes on top of the previous reports about the Governor choosing to evacuate his family and forcing the Albany city authorities to abandon key public buildings to the zombie horde.

In the opinion of Badger News, this can only mean one thing: the Governor is not fit for his job. How he ever want to convince people now that he would be qualified to run for president remains a mystery to us.

Press Statement from the Governor - Adirondack Editor

Following press statement was released by the Governor’s office:

The state governor has pressured Mayor Henk of Albany to surrender the
western part of the city and relocate towards City Hall. The western
district of the city houses, amongst others, the local Mercy Hospital and
the State Hall, two major components of Albany society.

By giving the order to relocate, the governor urges the state police forces
to abandon State Hall and the Mercy Hospital, despite resident patients
being in care.
Mayor Henk of Albany: “I firmly believe that it is irresponsible to abandon
core infrastructure of our city in favour of personal security, and we will
continue our city services’ efforts to secure our major services and ensure
continued care for the sick and ill. Not only is this important for our
city, but for a stable state as a whole.”

Romero City beats back hordes while Spearing declares State of Emergency! - Mishigamaa Editor

Reports are coming in from multiple sources that despite initial problems with effective deployment of police, Romero City has now been cleared of the “Alternatively Animated” hordes.

The Police Chief has eased off double shifts, but is reported to be the subject of a federal investigation alleging that he ordered the shooting of civilians. City Hall stands behind its chief of police at this time. City Hall spokes person stated “People are innocent until proven guilty”.

On Sunday there will be a local “citizens of the future” event to look forward to an optimistic future.

Why has the state abandoned smaller cities in order to protect Romero? Is this the result of corporate meddling? LexCorp has recently moved HQ to Romero, and apparently other corporations are in similar talks.

BREAKING: City of Spearing is in process of declaring a state of emergency following advice from the National Guard. Several Zs have been captured and are available for research.

Governor Tim Duerinck is evacuating himself and his family to the city hall in Albany.

In the city, panic is breaking out in reaction to his relocation. People believe that the city is lost, that the governor is giving up the city. They strongly feel the governor is abandoning them.

Meanwhile the Halperin Chief of Emergency Services has stated that ‘This country has more guns than people. We’re not worried’ before shooting his pistols wildly into the air and dancing a jig.

President unsure of who to support as successor – No Secretary of State despite Terrorist Threats - National Reporter A

In discussions with national media, the President stated that she was unsure who she would back as her successor in the next election, though she did state that she would of course be supporting a Republican candidate. Clearly bipartisanship is not a priority for this administration.

Interestingly, the position of Secretary of State is currently vacant and appears not to be a priority for this White House. Hopefully there will not be any international crises in the near future, despite the Joint Chiefs of Staff having been quoted regarding imminent terrorist threats.

A breakdown in interstate communications is currently disrupting Homeland Security correspondence with out of state colleagues.  Currently trying to rectify the situation. What does mean for federal support?

New Amsterdam mayor on Susquehannock zombie reports: “Let them come!” - Adirondack Editor

After the reported zombie sightings in the state of Susquehannock the Badger News has been collecting comments from political figures all over the state.

State Governor Tim Duerinck says “Nothing weird has been reported” in Adirondack. He adds that, in case of a crisis, the state is fully equipped to handle this. Homeland Security has reached out to the other states and is investigating the situation.

However, New Amsterdam mayor Elina Gouliou was seen almost inviting these so-called zombies into her city: “It they want to come, let them come, let them try!”. She was confident that the city’s infrastructure and emergency service can handle anything if anything might happen.

“Zombies” sighted! - Susquehannock Reporter A

Reports are coming in from Allentown and Scranton about so-called “zombies” being sighted in the streets. In Allentown they can’t really believe that they are zombies, “they don’t exist, right?”

Scranton is mobilising its police because of similar sightings. Police chief Oderkerk says he is taking this threat seriously, but “it is not terrorism, we have everything under control”. The emergency services have confirmed what they call “zombie-like behaviour”, people are aggressive or catatonic, so they are thinking of drug abuse.

According to Erie’s emergency services, everything is quiet, but they are prepared.

Recent interviews show that Governor Deurinck has the support of the bigger cities in the state, however the small town of Binghampton  clearly indicated that they feel left out in the Governor’s policies.

BREAKING: State governor Tim Duerinck runs for president - Adirondack Editor

Breaking: Adirondack state governor Tim Duerinck from the Adirondack Democratic State Party runs for president!

The promotional flyer above has just been released. Duerinck’s campaigning motto is “Strenth through Unity”. After the recent typo discussions on the state’s new motto, we are glad to see that no spelling errors are present in this communication.

Furthermore, sources say that governor Duerinck has stated that he finds it quite symbolic that it is exactly the word “togheter” that has been misspelled. Is the state administration out of control? Is the governor still in control of the state’s business? To be continued…

State of Adirondack announces new logo and motto (including typo) - Adirondack Editor

“We build our future togheter” says the state of Adirondack’s new motto. One would say that a state administration could at least afford a decent spelling check.

The banner with this new motto has been spread on behalf of Gov. Tim Duerinck and shows a soft pink-and-purple background with the new logo as well.  Particularly remarkable is the style difference between the old-fashioned text in the logo, “Adirondack – Liberty and Prosperity” and the motto, flashy in stylish white with a very modern writing error in this fast-paced society.

Furthermore, the logo shows a ribbon in blue and red with a bird spreading its wings.

There has been no further comment from the State so far on this sudden change of logo and motto. What is up here?

Update 11h54: The state’s press officer has stated that the above mentioned spelling error is indeed a mistake but there has been decided not to correct it as a sign of openness to imperfection: “Nobody is perfect” are his words.

Moreover, strange things have been seen around the State administration’s building: people seemingly running around mindless like a headless chicken. Might they have something to do with this utterly stupid mistake?
