How many points in the Benefit advantage would you need to be President of the United States (or the leader of a similarly powerful nation, like Russia or an alternate universe United States or something) in Mutants and Masterminds 3e? The Advantage itself says the following:
- Diplomatic Immunity: By dint of your diplomatic status, you cannot be prosecuted for crimes in nations other than your own. All another nation can do is deport you to your home nation.
- Security Clearance: You have access to classified government information, installations, and possibly equipment and personnel.
- Status: By virtue of birth or achievement, you have special status. Examples include nobility, knighthood, aristocracy, and so forth.
- Wealth: You have greater than average wealth or material resources, such as Well-off (rank 1), Independently Wealthy (rank 2), Millionaire (rank 3), Multimillionaire (rank 4), or Billionaire (rank 5).
Presumably, “being the President” could fall under all of those categories. When I looked up Lex Luthor’s writeup in DC Heros Adventures (which uses the same system), it mentions that at one point he runs for US President and wins, and his stat block gives him “Benefit 5 (wealth and resources)”, though I’m not sure if that is for him running LexCorp, him running the country as President, or both.
Does anyone have any hard rules for this? Ideally it’d involve a statblock of a reigning monarch or a sitting President, or an explicit rules statement somewhere, but something like a developer comment somewhere or rules from previous editions would work too (if they’re compatible with what 3e says).
Trump was being pretty ridiculous the way he kept patting himself on the back and denying the truth (George tried to straighten him out on a few points). He also kept insisting he was treated unfairly and that the news was fake. He especially was upset about polling data. But at the same time he said such data didn’t matter. Oh. He repeatedly said Mueller said ‘No obstruction’ when the report specifically says ‘It does not exonerate him’ (From obstruction)
He refers to Adam Schiff as ‘pencil neck’. Elizabeth Warren as ‘Pocahontas’. What’s next; calling Schumer ‘mushroom face’? Does this name-calling impress his childish supporters? How does a d_ckhead like this ever become a president? You guys had 16 other candidates to choose from and you chose the d_ckhead. Well you know what that says about you…
He’s 94. Has any other former president in history lived longer?
Although proceedings were delayed due to the bombing of Iraq, on the passage of H. Res. 611, Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998, by the House of Representatives on grounds of perjury to a grand jury (by a 228–206 vote) and obstruction of justice (by a 221–212 vote). Two other articles of impeachment failed – a second count of perjury in the Jones case (by a 205–229 vote) and one accusing Clinton of abuse of power (by a 148–285 vote). Clinton was the third sitting president against whom the House of Representatives initiated impeachment proceedings since 1789. Besides angering 50% of the voters and getting nothing productive done, what’s do they hope to accomplish?
She wants no cars, no airplanes, no natural gas, and she wants to control how many hamburgers you eat. And control how many children you have. Destroy the economy. Raise your taxes. And decriminalize illegal immigration. Sounds like a third-world nation.
Assuming RBG dies while Trump’s in office.
Recently, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that he may run for President in 2020 as an Independent centrist. Republicans have largely taken Schultz’s announcement lightly, claiming that he’s unlikely to earn a huge following beyond maybe a coalition of bipartisan moderates. Progressive Democrats, on the other hand, see a Schultz presidential run as their worst nightmare, claiming that he would essentially help Trump cruise to victory again. How would Schultz’s running (should he do so) be a boon to Trump? Artemisc, Schultz said he might run as an Independent. Which “nomination”, are you referring to?
Please tell me, Who will be next President of India..?
