New Release: Cirdens Fang Speech on the new Republic

April 11, 2013

Reproduction of the speech made by Cirdens Fang on the New Republic channels

A spinning sign of the republic would appear before the picture of the commander sitting at a desk, behind him the capital Coruscant a buz with life… and he speaks,

“Greetings the people of the New Republic, I am Commander Cirden Fang, from the Ministry of Defense. I appear before you today, to put a stop to the rumors that the senate doesn’t care, that the republic is dead, that we as a whole representation of freedom had failed… Look were I am, I sit in the center of the republic, in an office on republic soil. I will not lie though, the Republic is in bad shape. After the war, we went bankrupt, but I refused to let go when others did, I traveled the galaxy wide, in an attempt to find funds during this time, the position of Minister of Defense trickled down the line to me… because no one else wanted it, because no one cared enough. With that being said… the current interim chancellor Shan Connell has authorized and given her full permission and consent to this speech.”

The Camera pitches and fades to black as a new angle of the minister is shown, his head turning to the camera and continued,

“To open this speech, I wish to say that there will be changes ultimately to our constitution, to allow more planets to join the republic while limiting corruption by doing vast background checks, security checks, and other forms of identification programs on elected senators. The same goes for those who have positions of power, including myself, and the other ministers. In my time as commander of the New Republic Special Operations Force or NRSO, I have at time been called upon to do harm to our Senate but it has been at the authorization power that I hold. I will not hide what I have done, as that would be against the policies in which we will in act, and will answer questions truthfully to the best of my ability as long as it doesn’t damage current operations. “

A slight pause, before the shot changes again,

“Further more, the Jedi who have served so faithfully as the republics guardians for centuries have slacked… Except those from DJE, GLA, and KOJ, I formally wish to congratulate them and honor them for their help in winning our Capital back from the grips of the empire and other sorties I have heard of them doing. I have hopes for the future were those of other enclaves will be willing to go the lengths that these others have, as with out them, the forces of the Jensaarai, the NRSO, and other supporters of the republic, we wouldn’t be were we are now. So now we must dig deep, and start rebuilding and reformation of the Republic as a whole. To start, a new symbol was made to represent the rebirth of the great Republic.

An now the people of the Republic, there are jobs being built… look out your doors, look out your windows, look around you and feel as the things that we do now will breath life into something everyone thought was long dead. No longer will policy be void to corruption, No longer will we sit stagnate and allow ourselves to fall like that again. I have worked too hard to see that happen. We will work too hard to see it happen… I promise this to you the people of the Republic that we WILL not falter, we will not fail, and we will never give up. An with that we open our boarders once more to traffic, too aide, and to trade. Know though that any who wish to do harm to this Republic will find themselves at the end of an army in which… well… none can truly comprehend, fore our allies are strong and many. Thank you, and Long Live the Republic!”

With that the picture fades to the new republic symbol.

    (( Maybe that would be because the NJO didn’t actually LIBERATE Coruscant from anything. You meditated on your planet and didn’t do anything. Now say something ICly please. ))

    If Tython of all planets can liberate itself without any kind of galactic republic, faster than it did when it was part of the republic, what’s your case that this mythosaur should even be resurrected? If anything the galaxy seems like a more peaceful place.

    • Protector Commander Brave
      April 11, 2013 at 6:44 PM

      The Mandalorian protectors are offended and puzzled as to why you would use the word mythosaur in this context, while we appreciate the humor, we’d like you to not refer to the useless republic as a mythosaur as mythosaurs could actually threaten a Mandalorian and hurt them before they were killed

    HA! tython by themselves? No. KOJ, GAR, DJE, the Jensaarai, and other groups all came to aid them, so it wasn’t just NOJ. The republic, if resurrected and handled properly would be quite useful.

      I said Tython liberated itself- unless you can bring to light any other form of planetary or galactic government which seized authority over the liberation effort.

      Somehow, magically, without any help from a galactic republic, a planet that historically (while a republic member) was beaten up by Sith for no real reason managed to organize a defense. A defense based on the goodwill of some allied groups who lent a hand without any need for urging or prodding from a galactic organization ostensibly created for the defense of its members.

      Now, did this happen the last time the republic assumed responsibility for Tython’s co-defense by admitting them as a member planet?

      (In case you’re wondering, the answer is no.)

      Why didn’t all those friendly groups do that the last time Tython was under seige? Did it occur to you that maybe it was because of the political context in which it occurred? A context arrayed, largely, by the actions of the republic?

    Was that really the complete fault of the Republic or the Senator that was helping to bring it down at the time?

    • April 12, 2013 at 10:12 AM

      Which one? The one who served as a voice for a planet whose dark-side serving, Sith-parented queen was a majordomo to the Hutts? The one who plugs her military production company (see: military industrial complex) at every opportunity but otherwise did nothing when republic worlds are being invaded? The one who was accused, with some alleged evidence, of being a member of a terrorist group, in a case which was never satisfactorily ended? How about the one who brought disgrace to the last republic, railed against the current one, then inexplicably became a senator in it, became chancellor, only to delegate her duties to unqualified, unelected diplomats and sit on her hands for weeks while the republic was under seige? This while losing more member worlds than even the previous “major” chancellor, whose biggest accomplishment was making backroom deals with the Hutts and losing Bakura/GAR before disappearing to be “sick” and resigning before he could be impeached for utter inactivity?

      I’m going to give the whole deal a bit of credit and start from the presumption that it began with good intentions. Everything since has been at best, a comedy of errors, and at worst, a parade of horrors.

      You’re trying to single out just one person for blame? Do you not have a brain, or do you have a political agenda? For an alleged, anonymous, insignificant, random, “concerned citizen of the galaxy,” your position conveniently omits recognizing a number of very clearly complicit people in that enormous poodoo pile in order to suggest that this whole mechanism may have ever demonstrated any real benefit.

      Yeah, yeah. Jedi good. Sith bad. Anyone with eyes and neurons should know that the history of a group who repeatedly try to subjugate, oppress, and abuse galactic citizens is unfavorable in comparison to a group who, although they make a lot of stupid mistakes, generally try not to be jerks that deny the very possibility of peace to exist. But if anything has proven successful, it is the hope that these beautiful, stupid, flawed glowstick wavers will remember their principles long enough to act on them, rather than everyone handing immense galactic power to a handful of people with dubious (or flat-out fabricated) credentials who show little evidence of the ability to see beyond their own noses and care about little but their own comfort and bank accounts.

    Greeting to the Galactic news networks across the Galaxy, this is Hixal Aulus former Senator of the New Republic and loyal to how the system once was.

    *Hixal appears on the screen with a battered Republic banner behind him… there are a few other people with him who are also looking into the screen*

    Greetings to all who are listening and to those who chose not to listen, some of you may know who I am and some may not… regardless listen to my words. I was once the Senator within the New Republic to my home planet Varonat, however your supposed democracy lied and created false discourse on who I was and removed me unfairly from the Senate to never represent my people again. I was the man who tried to bring peace to the Senate and had no intentions in starting wars or unwanted behaviours in which the peoples taxes would be paying for, I simply planned to serve you in the chambers of Coruscant…. Yet Senators from Yavin, Dantooine, Velmor, Tython and even once named friends of mine developed a plot to remove me and have me murdered under the name of the Republic through execution. Now… I ask you a man who stands up against the senate chambers, who speaks out the wrong doing of the senate and of the previous Chancellors, a man who refuses to conform the arbitrary ways of which every senator has ever done is put up for execution … ask you self why! Because I wanted to give your freedoms back to you! You are living in a military run state, you only have to look to the recent article that Commander Cirden Fang delivered… A Commander on your screens telling you what is what! This is not democracy it is a regime that only stands for itself! Not you.. not me.

    I have been away for a while to find myself… I lost my ways and was acting irrationally. Along that journey I have found some companions who also left the Republic because of the state of the system… we now intend on returning to the know parts of the galaxy in which we will find a new home and start the biggest peaceful rivalry to the Republic that has ever been witnessed… all for the true, free people of the Republic who wish to serve a system that will serve them absolute! It is time to relinquish the old ways of living in fear, war and poverty… look at what the Republic did to Tython in their hour of need! Tython was abandoned by the Republic… children walked the street without homes, without parents! This is the system you wish to live under?

    The Republic is a system of snakes that will do what it takes to stay in power for as long as possible, they will lie, kill and cheat for power.
    When we land I will be updating you all on the current situation…

    *The people behind Hixal follow him in standing and all say with a clenched fist over their chests*

    Long live the true Republic!

  8. April 12, 2013 at 9:44 AM

    …… I am a commander, telling the people of the republic… that we are rebuilding, commending those who fought for the republic and generating hope as a figure of defense in the republic… the senate is alive and very much well we have several new planets. What the republic did to Tython? There wasnt much of a navy for the republic to fight with with the start of the war. When the NRSO was created we put people on tython, we could only do so much so fast without triggering an alert THEN when the occupation was over I personally went there myself as a delegate of the republic and offered supplies, medical Aid, and man power to rebuild tython… the government refused and threw myself off world. You want to make claims, when its so hard to believe some one who is supposed to be dead, some one who I’ve read to be dead more then twice…. and who I believe to be a lair, a traitor, and an all around wart on the republics ass that needs to be removed. An if you wish to rival the republic I do hope its peacefully. I honestly hope the best for you Hixal, but crimes and evidence, and feigning your own death doesn’t boast well for you.

    ~Minister Cirden Fang; New Republic Defense Minister; NRSO commander

    • April 12, 2013 at 10:27 AM

      You only really need to list “Minister” once in your obnoxiously long title, unless you are also minister of the Department of Redundancy Department.

      Also, wasn’t the job of the republic, as a defense alliance, to see to the responsible organization of a fleet and military so that it could defend its own planets? Wasn’t that your ball to drop, defense minister?

      And also, the republic did organize a fleet (maybe you weren’t aware) but by the time they did they determined to use it to liberate Coruscant- because it was formerly the seat of the republic. For purely political reasons, Coruscant was chosen over Tython, and all the big Jedi and big politicians went there to fight.

      Now look- when there’s no republic and Tython gets invaded by a Sith fleet, they beat them off no problem!

      (Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Har har. Next all I needed to do was mention how Jedi are “experts at handling lightsabers.”)

      • April 12, 2013 at 11:52 AM

        You are correct, and I’m sorry for my Redundancy. It was, how ever back then the Defensive Ministry was run by another Minister, if it was me in charge I would have done both. An your right, they did beat them off, and I will not deny that to them at all… but dont slander the facts that we went and tried to offer aid afterwards and tried to get people in during…

      April 12, 2013 at 11:45 AM

      “I personally went there myself as a delegate of the republic and offered supplies, medical Aid, and man power to rebuild tython… the government refused and threw myself off world.”

      Indeed. This is because you also sent people like Ayeka Kel to try and push Governor Avon around while ignoring solid evidence presented that Senator Tafo had connections to the TLF terrorist group. We were already rebuilding without your help. Just like we resisted much of the occupation without your help.

      And now the corrupt leaders of the NJO such as Marsh Solo are pushing for Tython to rejoin this defunct Republic of yours. A Republic which I’ve grown to realize was little more than a Jedi house organ.

      I just wonder how they’re going to accomplish this though. Even was I was less clued in on the true nature of the Republic in general and Tython in particular, it was hard finding people to run for office on Tython. I ran unopposed for the position of Senator. In fact, the NJO -begged- me to run because they simply couldn’t find anyone else who wanted the job.

      “and who I believe to be a lair, a traitor, and an all around wart on the republics ass that needs to be removed.”

      Oh, please. Your own Republic dropped the case against Hixal. And let me guess…were the initial allegations against him levelled by Jedi? Trust me…I’ve seen how -one- group of Jedi drunk on their own power conducts so-called “investigations”. Ask me about how they screwed up in regards to Governor Rochdester sometime.

  9. April 12, 2013 at 10:58 AM

    Please… You are aware the Republic has cleared me of all allegations regarding myself. The fabrications that you made up were deemed to be false under Republic ruling. The way in which the military is announcing changes to the constitution only depens the idea of a system ran by war seekers.. Such as yourself.

    I must also remind you that I was on the run when faking my death.. You more than any should be aware of this as it was you who was trying to kill me. Also the senate as shown me that I have done nothing illegal against the constitution, as I was not a citizen of the Republic. However, I am now back in the Republic and considered a free man to do as I wish, I do not fear you nor the powers at be.

    You my old friend should fear the upcoming weeks and months as for more of your closed door deals and wrong doings will be coming back in which you will stand trials for! Plus you have introduced the very scheme I suggested in background checks and making sure corruption was watched over… But the in which you have said like you yourself created this is outstanding… Although it does show that there is corruption within the Republic or else why would you need such a system?

    • April 12, 2013 at 12:11 PM

      Mmm, your right but the allegations are still there… as for me… sorry, I dont know what you talking about.. I wasn’t any where near you or in the same system. But it still doesn’t boast well to you and your cries… I will not fear… and I suggested it to put such things as your talks to rest. So there is NO doubt anymore that the republic is not as you say… its a safety measure, you know the whole Checks and Balance thing… it still exists… in any case, good luck my friend in your endeavors.

    The Republic is not dead but being run by a woman that is from Bengat, with hutt and sith ties. This interim chancellor is a self appointed one, after the senate began ejecting and removing people through force and manipulation. I stand here today as a Velmorian who still has my citizenship with the new republic. I refuse to bow to shan connell, a woman who in the senate did nothing but give nonsense legislation and rallied against other senators instead of working together in a time of need.

    The Galactic Senate of The New Republic is a shadow puppet government of people working not for the interest of the people but the interest of one. Politicians in the Galactic Senate will pretty up their words to hide the truth behind their true agenda. Democracy is dead in the senate and any real republican citizen does not believe in her chancellorship. The senate is not going well and nor is there any real congregation of senators working within the group.

    Do not listen to their propaganda and see the truth. If the people want a true leader to lead, let them elect one and not have shadow puppets install their own. There are to many power players not letting go and giving the freedoms and rights to the people who want reform not dictatorship. The Senate is corrupted and if the people want a leader that will fight for them, then you have a woman like myself to stand out front and do just that.

    Its time that the senate be run by the people, its time for this corrupted closed door deals and wrong doings come out front for all to see. But we shall never see this as the puppets that have control of the senate refuse to listen to reform and defame or remove anyone who doesnt comply with their way of doing things. Its time the senate return to a state of for the people by the people.

    The creation of a new galactic senate is underway and more news and information will come forward once it is available for the public. I have faith that this new reform will allow more equality and finally give power back to the people and free the citizens from this already corrupted senate being run by shan connell, whom her world of bengat switched sides so easily.

    You can try to lie to the people, but the people know the truth. If you want a leader for change, you can count on me to do just that. I intend to work with everyone and be a leader not a dictator. Working united, we can close this false galactic senate and reform and open up a galactic senate that is built on equality. Equality that will open up doors to other worlds and their constituents to have a voice in the galactic stage that is, The Galactic Senate.

    I to was also persecuted for not wanting to condemn the man hixal and even sought to expunge and remove these charges. I have seen much corruption and I intend to continue to fight for the people even if I do not represent a world. I feel that I represent the republic as a whole and the true beliefs and ideals that have made the republic in the past, the best and greatest government in all the sectors.

    Lets keep the dream alive and together we can remove the puppets and reclaim the new republic back to the people. The time for change and reform is now.

    Velmorian Royal Ambassador & Former Senator and then Queen of Naboo.

    • April 14, 2013 at 8:35 AM

      I like how you’re exploiting an opportunity to rail against the corruption and self-aggrandizement of guys like Mr. Minister Defense Minister, but you use it to plug your own power-grab and throw around even more titles in your closing than he does. Aren’t you a bit busy being both Velmoran Royal Ambassador and then Queen of Naboo? Are you speaking for Velmor, Naboo, or as a former senator? Are you going to try to do all those while rallying people to recreate or reform a republic? Or is this just a speech you’re making so you can broadcast it during the next election cycle on Naboo to boost poll numbers (if you were even truly elected).

    You can’t really slander a fact, unless you’re referring to a person or organization whose name is “Fact.” But you can mischaracterize or distort facts, otherwise you’re just ignoring facts altogether.

    Kind of how you’re ignoring the immense problems traced back, exclusively, to the republic’s existence during that period and its being a direct cause of Tython’s invasion in the first place. The onus is kind of on you to justify the existence of such an institution when under any circumstances it’s fully capable of bringing down Sith on one of its members while offering little but to “[try] to get people in during” and “[try] to offer aid afterwards.”

    You realize how pathetic of an excuse that sounds, right?

  16. April 14, 2013 at 10:17 AM

    The use of titles and diplomatic status’ is a representation of what state the Republic is in or the more holistic scale of which the game of politics is being played. Yes, titles are given out by institution however it must be recognized that they are not a claim to power just a simple reminder of who you are or once were, if I can give advice I would put it across that our representatives should be demonstrating their leadership qualities within the systems in which they all claim to represent.

    I know what it takes to lead or serve people and I sense that not one of the current representatives know how to carry out such an action, they are in the positions for the sole reason of having the power that comes along with it, on behalf of the people of the New Republic I ask you all to stop boasting and of you status’ and get back to work.

      I’m all for the idea of a republic but I really think it needs to be done over by different people. None of the current people involved are dedicated and honestly there is no debate anymore or an active chancellor. This is the first I’ve heard from anyone in the republic and it’s a little unsettling that the minister of defense works as security for a criminal conglomerate. Either the republic has failed or it needs a restart with people who are serious about keeping it going
