This is President Jeffrey Michener.
As usual, I speak to you
from the historic Old Courthouse in St. Louis, Missouri.
On this, the 154th day of my presidency,
I'm happy to announce that our American reconstruction plan
continues on pace.
In fact, if you're hearing me
over an electric radio in the four corner states
or seeing me for the first time on television,
you already know that the Johnson hydroelectric plant
is back online,
providing consistent power to much of the Southwest.
And from all over the country,
we have more reports of Americans joining forces
to fix the broken pieces of our nation.
Yes, the American spirit is alive and well.
Today, many of you will receive your newly printed ration cards
to be used for all essential purposes.
A reminder... These are not a replacement for U.S. Currency.
We continue to work with the banks
to ensure everyone has access to their money and their property,
but until our productivity can keep up with demand,
these cards will ensure
citizens are granted equal access to available goods.
We ask for your continued patience
and your help with this implementation.
Dr. Rachel Scott's murder came as a shock to us all,
but she died knowing that she brought life
back to this great nation.
And her sacrifice will not be forgotten.
This St. Louis radio hub will continue
to bring you updates and information,
along with your local stations as they come online.
Of course, I'll be back tomorrow to speak with you directly.
Until then, I thank you for your contributions and your courage.
This project will succeed because of you.
May God bless you
and the United States of America.
Hello, my little angel.
Try it now. Hey, Danny?
Danny, can you hear me?
Kara, can you... Can you...
Danny, are you there?
Nothing. Still nothing. Kara, it's coming through here.
Can you see me? Mom, here.
Danny, if you can hear me, I'm here with our son.
Tell him... Tell him Frankie almost rolled over yesterday.
Okay, he didn't almost roll over yesterday. Yes, he did.
He's so smart, Danny. He's so smart.
We're gonna try to find daddy, okay?
The problem's not on your end.
The voice comes over okay, but when we try to send video,
there's something jamming up the line,
like another signal crowding the channel.
Kara. Can't tell what it is.
Kara, nothing's coming through here.
Can you see me?
If you can hear me, will you...
tell... tell Frankie that daddy loves him?
And that I can't wait to meet him.
Can you hear us, Danny? Oh, we were so close.
Yeah, I'll keep trying. Sorry. Okay. Frankie.
Daddy's coming home soon, okay?
Frankie, I love you guys.
You just couldn't wait to come out,
could you, Frankie? See you, Frankie.
Diaz, when did you get the booster?
I don't know, sir. About four months ago.
Which means you are no longer contagious.
Take it easy with the boxes.
Not good, Seaman Apprentice Diaz.
Not good at all.
Aren't you curious as to how heavy these boxes are?
E-5, my friend.
I do the pointing now, not the lifting.
Lieutenant, Lincoln's gassed up the helo.
She's carrying the 22-millimeter and hellfires.
Let's hope we won't need them.
The only thing we'll be dropping on Vietnam
is a whole lot of the cure.
Amen to that.
Captain's on the bridge.
Master Chief, how we looking?
All squared away, sir.
Wind's light out of the southwest.
Probably an easy 9-iron to the green.
OOD, bring us around 2-7-0, please.
Helmsman, steady course 2-7-0.
Right standard rudder, steady course 2-7-0.
I want to watch the sunset.
Good morning, sir.
Mrs. Green, how are things?
Actually hit a little traffic coming in today.
That's a good sign.
Took the liberty of picking up your new rations book.
They did a good job.
It's a nice way to honor her memory,
though hardly enough, considering.
President Peng hoarded the cure, kept it for the Chinese,
and is now letting the virus mutate
and burn itself across Japan and probably the rest of Asia.
You don't know that, Alex.
I'm sorry, sir.
Did I hear you right?
The virus has mutated?
Captain, we're getting word from the southern islands of Japan
that suggests the doses were ineffective against the virus.
The death rate is skyrocketing.
Dr. Scott said the virus cannot mutate.
She was very clear about that.
We're gonna need some proof if we plan...
Sir, we have two destroyers
returning to Okinawa from Amur Bay.
They can be on the ground right away.
We sent Peng 1 million doses two months ago.
He just never delivered them to Japan.
By the time our ships got there with the cure,
