Obama

Former President Barack Obama during an SCP-5092-A event.

Special Containment Procedures:
The current president of the United States of America is to remain under video surveillance at all times, with their face in view of the camera as frequently as possible. Recording the president's face between 19:45 and 20:001 is a Level 5/Amida Response situation.2

To achieve this task, the White House, Congress, the President's private residence(s), and common Presidential speaking avenues should be fitted with as many discreet, hidden cameras as are required to keep their nose and/or arms in view at all times. Furthermore, agents embedded in the White House are to keep track of the president's schedule. The president is to be surveyed on any trips out of Washington with hidden cameras and if necessary, long-range surveillance drones or spy agents. All footage is to be analyzed live by C5092.amk for deviances from normal behavior. C5092.amk is to be checked for any faults weekly.

Between the times 19:40 and 20:10, MTF Theta-20 ("Sniffle Squad") is to always be within five minutes' travel distance of the president. If at 19:53, the president does not scratch their nose, Theta-20 is to be immediately dispatched to their location. Site-143 has been established nearby the White House to accommodate Theta-20 and give them quick access to the president in the case that an 5092-B event occurs inside the White House. Additionally, multiple members of Theta-20 have been embedded in the White House Secret Service, and at least four agents are located there at all times. If an 5092-B event should occur, all available Mobile Task Forces are to be mobilized to enact Protocol 34.

Attempts to engineer an anomalous meme (to incite nose scratching at 19:53) powerful enough to withstand President Trump's reality sink are ongoing.

Description:
SCP-5092 is a phenomenon affecting the President of the United States; every night, at exactly 19:53, the president will scratch their nose,3 regardless of any external factors. This is not due to a direct compulsion to do so but is simply the result of their nose becoming spontaneously itchy.

Occasionally, for an unknown reason, the president will not receive a spontaneous itch at 19:53.4 If this happens and the president subsequently does not immediately scratch their nose, an instance of SCP-5092-1 will materialize instantly approximately 64 800km away from Earth above the North Pole.

SCP-5092-1 is an asteroid with an estimated diameter of 20km that moves at a rate of 18 km/s in the direction of Earth. Foundation models of a collision event between SCP-5092-1 and the Earth have determined that it would result in an XK end-of-the-world scenario, causing humans and all other large animal species to go extinct. Upon materialization, SCP-5092-1 will collide with the Earth in 1hr unless the President scratches their nose during that time, in which case SCP-5092-1 will instantly dematerialize.

Discovery:
SCP-5092 was first discovered in 1982 by the second iteration of the Anomalous Signature Recognition Program5 after being given access to the Foundation's Important Political Actors Video Archive, which contained enough footage of 5092-A events for A.S.R.P.2 to detect the anomaly.


Addendum 5092-1: Incident Reports

Incident 5092-1-A, 2009/10/18

At 19:56, Area-32 reported to Overseer Command that an anomalous object, 19.7km in diameter, had materialized in the solar system and was heading towards Earth. They predicted that it would collide with Earth in 1hr and 05m. At 19:59, the O5 Council voted 13-0 to declare a code black emergency and enact Protocols 3 and 34. (Protocol 27 could not be enacted due to the lack of notice to the object's arrival).


At 20:15, Site-10 reported to Overseer Command a deviance of behavior in SCP-5092. (The deviance was picked up by A5092.amk and discovered by personnel during the Protocol 3 checkup).

At 20:18, Agents at Site-10 contacted President Obama and attempted to convince him to scratch his nose.


At 20:21, Overseer Command contacted Site-12, located within the Washington metropolitan area, to assemble a temporary MTF for the purpose of making the President scratch his nose.

At 20:36, Temporary Mobile Task Force Epsilon-33 successfully infiltrated the White House under the guise of Secret Service agents and achieved the mission goal at 20:51, neutralizing the threat.

At 20:52, Area-32 reported that SCP-5092-1 had dematerialized. At 20:53, the O5 council voted 13-0 to end the code black emergency and Protocol 34.

Following Incident 5092-1-A, SCP-5092 was reclassified and new containment procedures were written, including the creation of Site-143 and MTF Theta-20, tasked with containing SCP-5092.

Incident 5092-1-B, 2012/6/22

At 19:55, Area-32 reported to Overseer Command that SCP-5092-1 had manifested 81 000km away from Earth and would collide in 1hr and 15m at 21:10.

At 19:57, Overseer Command declared a code black emergency and enacted Protocol 34. (Protocol 27 could not be enacted due to the lack of notice to the object's arrival). At 19:58, Theta-20 Agents attempted and failed to contact the President.

At 20:15, MTF Theta-20 successfully neutralized the threat.


At 20:17, Area-32 reported that SCP-5092-1 had dematerialized. At 20:18, Overseer Command declared the end of the code black emergency and Protocol 34.

Following the events of Incident 5092-1-B, the use of T-128C for the purpose of inciting unconscious nasal rubbing was discontinued in favor of more reliable methods.

Additional Data:

Note: Two months after Incident 5092-1-B, a newly engineered meme, designed to make its host scratch their nose at 19:53, was transmitted to President Obama. No more 5092-B events occurred for the remainder of Obama's presidency, possibly as a result of the meme.

Incident 5092-1-C, 2020/5/29

At 20:54, Area-32 reported to Overseer Command that SCP-5092-1 had manifested 59 400km away from Earth and would collide in 55m at 20:49. At 19:55, Overseer Command declared a code black emergency and enacted Protocol 34. (Protocol 27 could not be enacted due to the lack of notice to the object's arrival).

At 19:57, a Theta-20 Agent contacted President Donald Trump and tried to get him to scratch his nose.

At 20:48, Theta-20 successfully neutralized the threat.

At 20:49, Area-32 reported that SCP-5092-1 had dematerialized. At 20:51, Overseer Command declared the end of the code black emergency and Protocol 34.


Addendum 5092-2: Additional Files

I've attached the following file to this document because I believe it may have some connection to SCP-5092. Further investigation is underway.
