    Brazil Economy

    With the collapse of the Brazilian stock exchange and the economy there, we are likely expecting global repercussions. Can I get a policy breakdown from the NSC, what caused the crash and whether this is something the US can step in and balance? And, a related question... Do we think the Brazilians welcome our help in the form of US advisors to promote stronger regulatory guidelines and institutions to allow Brazil to handle the issue?

    Domestic Scenarios Coverage

    I always have opinions on this lol.... I think as players we could do well to recognize that not all scenarios even can be unbiased. Real life reflects this, see: Sandy Hook as a perfect example of a pretty bad one-sided RL event/scenario. I also recommend not just rehashing RL events, since its likely people will just go chase down the RL solution so that they'll not truly engage them. One approach is to change one small fact from a RL event, and see where that snowballs us (and of course, change dates. You can always go backwards/forwards in time for inspiration). But recognizing that *on average* they should end up being pretty unbiased (or equally biased, more accurately). The other thing is to read player passed bills and see which ways they may have externalities, random and unintended side effects that may or may not be good. I used to do this a lot, creating new interest groups who were disenfranchised people caused by another sector doing well in response to a bill.

    Lebanese Civil War

    Well... I think the primary issue is an end to the conflict, and the immediate withdrawal of Syrian and Israeli forces from Lebanon. Obviously each of the Maronite, Sunni, Shiite, and Druze groups have demands and expectations we should be working to find a balance across, but France's relationship with the Maronite and the legacy of support is key to finding a balanced and lasting solution. I would like to begin speaking with the French about an ideal peace talk situation, one in which we are able to assist each faction in getting something to bring an end to the civil war and begin to rebuild Beirut. The biggest issue is finding a way to push Syria out without military intervention, which I think once peace talks work out well could be accomplished by Security Council Resolution. Though alternative approaches would be welcome. The US would be happy to host talks, but we'd invite alternatives as well.

    Lebanese Civil War

    Can I get an update on the Lebanese Civil War? I'd like to begin looking to see if we can't help all sides broker a working peace in Lebanon, with some French assistance as well.

    The President's China Briefing

    Let's move to DEFCON 4, and move a carrier group into the region. Nothing confrontational, just near enough to lessen our response time. Further, let's use unofficial personnel to communicate with Deng's Ambassador that we'd ask the Zhang government to consider amnesty for all Deng administration officials in a peaceful end to the situation. And that we're very interested in seeing such an agreement. What kind of space do we have to sell arms or military equipment to Zhang? Just to feel out our options. Where is the state of local uprisings that led to Zhang's government in the Deng-controlled regions? Is Deng simply so repressive that they've been tamped down? Or is there some bubbling tensions we could potentially stoke to help bring an end to this? Can we get a list of economic and military sanctions? I do not want to make a blanket change to the policy. Which do I need Congress to remove, and which can I move by executive decision? (some links would be fine. I can't find specific ones with my google fu) Amb. Lord, what is the likelihood of a UNGA vote to recognize the Zhang government passing? I recognize that we may need 2/3 support if the 1961 resolution still holds. Where is Taiwan in all of this? Let's communicate with the Taiwanese leadership and get a feel for their views on the Zhang-Tibet talks.

    South Africa

    Let's reach out to Mr. De Klerk about the future of South Africa's race relations. Tell him that we're willing to consider changes to US sanctions if benchmarks within the 1986 Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act are met.

    South Africa

    Congress is getting pretty heated, and is pushing a textile bill banning textile trade with South Africa. What are the expected impacts? How does Great Britain feel about the bill, as its obvious going to impact them? In addition, what is the state of the South African nation and its continued issues on race? Have there been any recent developments? (if it is same as IRL to 1989, just link me wiki stuff and I'll do my own research).

    Brazil Economy

    Let's dispatch some economic personnel, from Treasury and/or State, that can help advise. We should dispatch them to Brazil to help with stabilizing their market and encourage better policy.

    Other NatSec Issues

    Let's certainly become involved in the formal UN investigation. Mr. Lord, can you please offer the UN our support in the matter. And simultaneously, we should launch our own investigation... Quietly. Mr. Taft, can the Agency lead an investigation? We should use our Israeli and Maronite connections in Lebanon first, I think.

    Other NatSec Issues

    Do we have any updates on USMC Colonel William Richard Higgins? What are we doing to apprehend those responsible for his death?

    Saudi Arabia

    (Yeah. In response to OPEC requirements, Saudi Arabia decided to vastly over-produce oil at full capacity, dropping international oil prices and tanking several other OPEC economies who were producing lower amounts as OPEC decreed. Link here.)

    Saudi Arabia

    I'd like to ask Sec of State Charles Percy to fly to Saudi Arabia to meet with Aramco officials and Saudi leaders about the current energy situation across the world, especially in regards to Saudi over-production of oil. We're looking to see whether Saudi's have plans to alter their oil production to bring it back within historic OPEC range.

    Discussion of No Seat Belt, No Sale Act

    Mayors, Governors, I am glad so many of you agreed to attend. This bill has recently received a good deal of consideration in Congress, and I have some concerns I would like your input on. Namely, the cost s associated with this bill, which has no federal funding for the requirements it makes of you. Each of you was chosen because you represent a major metropolitan area with higher-than-average amounts of public transportation affected by the bill, or by small towns or communities who do not always have the financial ability to maneuver around the bill's demands. Is it reasonable for you to both find funds and perform the necessary upgrades within 90 days, as the bill requires? Would the cost be difficult to account for?Is safety on public transportation a major issue in your cities and states? What kind of fatality rates do you face on subways? On school buses? On city buses or Amtrak? I'd like to her your thoughts on the bill,, the relative need for the bill, and its expected impact on local government.
  20. @Sweet Daddy The President would like to invite the following to the White House to discuss the impact and costs of the No Seat Belt, No Sale Act. Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley (D) New York Mayor David Dinkins (D) Boston Mayor Raymond Flynn (D) San Francisco Mayor Art Agnos (D) Florida Governor Bob Martinez (R) Pennsylvania Governor William Scranton III (R) California Governor George Deukmejian (R) Texas Governor Bill Clements (R)

    Communication with Federal Departments

    President Kaine directs the Department of Education to include in its criteria for grants from Section 2 of the Computer Literacy Act of 1988 the amount to which students will receive direct use and training on the computers obtained by the grant, putting a primacy on high student use.
