* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' features two of these in its concluding book, ''[[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Ascension]],'' both in response to the Technocracy's desperate attempt to stop the [[MassSuperEmpoweringEvent mass-Awakening of mages across the world]]; the first is from the President of the United States, the second from the Premier of China. Though they vary distinctly in tone, they're both clear and obvious attempts by the Technocracy to use the Traditions as a scapegoat for the disaster, including a rather slapdash attempt to pass off the very real magic on display as the result of [[SharedMassHallucination mind-altering drugs.]]

* Done in Stephen King's ''TheStand'', where the president can't even get through his speech without starting to cough like crazy, even as he's telling everyone there's nothing to fear and a vaccine is coming.
