The Chancellor has been receiving some undue criticisms for the past few months. Because of this the Chancellor began community outreach to let the public hear the truth behind these “allegations”.
My unit was assigned to protection, but not to the Chancellor’s group. We would be traveling with Senator Ask Aak of Malastare. He was an appropriate choice due to his strong support for the Chancellor and his name has the phrase ‘Ask” built right in to it.
It has been a fantastic and successful trip. I learned so much how the Chancellor is fighting hard for all our rights and freedoms.
Here is a sample of the give and take between Senator Ask Aak and the liberal bias press who hate the Republic.
Reporter 1: Senator Ask Aak, There has been a lot of controversy over the unilateral decision to wiretap citizens of the Republic without warrants?
Senator Ask Aak: Why do you reporters hate the Republic so much? The Chancellor talked about his the other day. In his own words:
“One of the methods to secure proper intelligence is to monitor all communications going off-planet to Separatist worlds and outposts. Now, granted there is a whole lot of com traffic going around here on Coruscant, so we have employed filtering methods that allow us to only monitor people that we consider to be bad guys.”
There you have it, we are only looking for badguys and we know who the badguys are. Do you want another attack on Coruscant and the Chancellor being kiddnapped again? The only way we can stop attackes like that from happening is this legal, fair, protecting your rights wiretapping. Next question.
Reporter 1: Coruscant was attacked and the Chancellor was kidnapped? What… When?
Senator Ask Aak: Oh yeah that hasn’t happened yet… NEXT QUESTION (waves to me to remove reporter 1)
Reporter 2: There has been a lot of criticisms of many of the Chancellor's polices, from the wiretapping and excess use of the emergency powers to his supposed meeting with Lobbyist Jerk AbramHutt. What do you have to say to those critics?
Senator Ask Aak: Why do you reporters hate the Republic so much? The Chancellor is only using the powers given to him by the Senate. And when citizens question the Chancellor policies, it only gives aid and comfort to the Separatists. Questioning the Chancellor also hurts our Clone Troopers. How can they do there job if they think the partisan politicians and bias Republic hating press don’t support them? Is that what you are saying, you don’t support the Clone Troopers? Next Question.
Reporter 2: Uh, don’t the Clone Troopers just follow orders no matter what the political situation? I mean they were built and programmed that way, right??
Senator Ask Aak: NEXT QUESTION (waves to me to remove reporter 2)
I have to get back to duty now, but will let you know how the rest of the press conference went.
